At least 18 pro-life pregnancy centers fire bombed and over 40 vandalized and calls from Democrats for more violence

Christian pregnancy center in Colorado vandalized and burned following Roe v. Wade reversal

The New York Post documents the firebombing of the pro-life pregnancy center in Colorado.

A Colorado Christian crisis center for pregnant women was vandalized and set on fire Saturday morning, a day after the US Supreme Court reversed federal protection of abortions.

Police responded to a fire at Life Choices in Longmont around 3:20 a.m., and found the building ablaze with covered with graffiti messages referencing the controversial overturning of Roe v. Wade, officials said.

“If abortions aren’t safe neither are you,” one message read, accompanied by the circled “A” anarchy symbol.

The saying has been written at dozens of pro-life centers since the court’s intent to overturn the 1973 ruling was leaked in May.

“Bans off our bodies,” was also painted onto the entrance walkway of the building while another anarchy symbol adorned its façade, according to pictures released by police.

Life Choices offers women alternatives to abortion as well as faith-based post-abortion counseling, according to its website.

Remember that, as of 16 June, no less than 17 pro-life pregnancy centers had been fire bombed

As previously blogged, seventeen pro-life pregnancy centers and a pro-life legislator have been firebombed by Antifa-affiliated “Jane’s Revenge.”

Add to that these two additional fire bombings.

Over 40 Attacks Targeted Pro-life Group Since Supreme Court Leak: Report

The Epoch Times comments on the greater than 40 attacks on pro-life groups since the Supreme Court leak.

More than 40 attacks against pro-life individuals and organizations have been recorded since the leak of a Supreme Court draft opinion indicating a potential overturn of Roe v. Wade, according to a report released on June 16.

The report, published by Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, says the over 40 incidents that have occurred in recent weeks involve violence, vandalism, and intimidation.

“Every abortion is an act of violence—violence against the unborn child who is killed and violence against the mother who is wounded in one of the deepest ways possible,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, the group’s president, said in the statement accompanying the report.

“In contrast to that inherent violence, the vast network of pregnancy centers, maternity homes, and other organizations across America exist to peacefully and lovingly serve women and families,” it said.

‘Actions of Comrades’

The latest incidents detailed in the report include vandalizations in Hope Pregnancy Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on June 11. The office of the pro-life group had four windows smashed and vandalized with graffiti.

An online blog post dated June 12 from someone who claimed credit for the damage under the name of “Anti Hope Brigade” said they were “inspired by the actions of comrades” in Wisconsin, Colorado, New York, and a growing list of places, according to the report.

The sharp rise in attacks began in early May when a leaked draft opinion indicated that the Supreme Court is poised to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling concluding access to abortion is a constitutional right.

The institution noted Jane’s Revenge, which has taken credit for dozens of recent attacks on pregnancy centers across the nation, issued a new threat on June 15. The pro-abortion radicals, in the statement published on its website, declared “open season” on pro-life institutions that do not shut down.

SBA Pro-Life America urged the Biden administration to condemn the attacks.

I applaud SBA for getting Congressional support

I applaud Susan B. Anthony for being able to get Congressional leaders to call for the administration to take action on pro-abortion violence in the following ways:

However, only a sound defeat in 2022 and 2024 will register with Democrats.

Virginia pro-life pregnancy center vandalized hours after Roe ruling

The Washington Examiner reports that a Virginia pro-life pregnancy center received damage hours after the Dobbs versus Jackson case sent the matter of abortion back to the states.

Vandals attacked an anti-abortion pregnancy center in central Virginia early Saturday morning, hours after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 abortion case.

Surveillance footage released by the Lynchburg Police Department shows a group of four individuals walking away from the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center at 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Lynchburg authorities also released photos showing multiple broken windows and graffiti on the outside of the building. The vandals left distinct messages with their graffiti, including “If abortion ain’t safe you ain’t safe!” and a tag reading “Jane’s Revenge,” a reference to the pro-abortion rights extremist group that has taken credit for similar attacks on pregnancy centers nationwide.

The Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center is a faith-based nonprofit crisis pregnancy group. It provides free and confidential services that include pregnancy tests, limited obstetrical ultrasound, parenting and life skills classes, post-abortion support, and counseling referrals. The center does not provide abortion services.

The Left proves itself to be the violent side

With the Left’s obsession on 6 January, we have been told that Conservatives are the violent ones. Again, with the riots of 2020 in mind, that has again been proven a lie.

Pro-Abortionists were mad, so they rioted and held Arizona legislators captive

The Daily Wire lays out the anarchy and criminal activities committed by pro-abortion activists.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) released a statement Saturday, responding to the riotous behavior of pro-abortion activists at the state’s Capitol building Friday night.

The protests attracted between 7,000 and 8,000 people following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade and began as a peaceful demonstration, according to AZDPS. However, the protest soon turned chaotic as rioters attempted to breach the state’s Capitol building and vandalized historical monuments.

“What began as a peaceful protest evolved into anarchical and criminal actions by masses of splinter groups. As groups realized the state legislature was in session, they attempted to breach the doors of the Arizona Senate and force their way into the building,” AZDPS wrote.

The rioters reportedly terrified state lawmakers who were still in the process of voting on legislation, The Daily Wire previously wrote.

“We are currently there being held hostage inside the Senate building due to members of the public trying to breach our security,” Arizona state Senator Kelly Townsend tweeted. “We smell teargas and the children of one of the members are in the office sobbing with fear. I expect a J24 committee to be created immediately.”

(Read at the Daily Wire about the reactions of those attacked)

Of course, this will not be reported outside of Arizona

Unlike the wall-to-wall coverage of the 6 January riots, this will not make air time.

If the Democrats really stood for law and order, then Democrats from Joe to the dog catcher in Harris County would condemn the attacks on pro-life centers.

Joe Biden (#NotMyPresident) has not shown himself to be anything but a socialist hack. He supports violence against his “enemies” even when those people are peaceful Americans who support the poorest of Americans.

Crowd gathers outside Thomas home to protest abortion ruling

The Washington Examiner explores the ways protesters have decided to protests the Dobbs decision.

Pro-abortion rights demonstrators descended on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s home in Virginia on Friday night to protest the high court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which was announced hours earlier.

Protesters showed up with signs and began chanting. Members of the crowd called the justice’s wife, Ginni, an “insurrectionist,” likely referring to her correspondence supporting efforts to challenge the results of the 2020 election, and others yelled “Off with their d***s!” in response to the ruling. Clarence Thomas was one of the five justices to vote in support of overturning Roe, which ended the nationwide right to an abortion.

Roughly 30 protesters had already arrived outside the home as of 8 p.m., with a similar number of journalists. The group erupted in chants and songs, crying out “No privacy for us, no peace for you!” and “Ginni Thomas is an insurrectionist!”

One protester held a sign that read: “Thomas is a treasonous turd.”

The protest was organized online by the pro-abortion group Ruth Sent Us, which has protested regularly at justices’ homes since May when a draft of the opinion was leaked, signaling the court would overturn a nearly 50-year-old ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

Never mind that it is against the law to protest at the home of a justice, judge, baliff, or other court official

According to Cornell Law School, it is unlawful to picket or parade at the home of a justice, judge, juror, or any of the other court officials they list.

Whoever, with the intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer, in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades in or near a building housing a court of the United States, or in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer, or with such intent uses any sound-truck or similar device or resorts to any other demonstration in or near any such building or residence, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

AOC calls for pro-abortion groups to escalate their protests

The Washington Free Beacon lists out calls by AOC to escalate protests against the abortion ruling.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Friday joined protesters outside the Supreme Court to call the institution “illegitimate” and urge supporters “into the streets” to fight for abortion, following a landmark opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.

Pro-life and pro-abortion activists gathered outside the Court in anticipation of a ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, in which a 6-3 majority voted to overturn Roe. Ocasio-Cortez took to a megaphone to voice her disapproval after the ruling was announced, spurring protesters on to “a generational fight.”

A recent Department of Homeland Security report warned about the rising likelihood of violence in the wake of the ruling. Ocasio-Cortez is one of 27 House Democrats who recently opposed a bill that bolstered security measures for the justices, following protests outside their homes. The legislation was held up in the House because Democrats had conditioned its passage on adding similar security for Court clerks.

Calls to pass the measure grew more urgent after an armed man was arrested outside the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month. The gunman later confessed to plans to assassinate the justice.

“The hell with the Supreme Court—we will defy them,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) also told protesters. “Women will be in control of their bodies.”

Seventeen pregnancy help centers and a pro-life legislator get fire bombed

The left in the media and the Biden regime remain silent on this rampant crime

The Daily Mail reports through a 14 June 2022 article how 17 pregnancy centers and a pro-life Republican have been fire bombed by Antifa-affiliated “Jane’s Revenge,” but nothing has come out of the American press or the Biden regime.

REVEALED: 17 anti-abortion centers have been FIREBOMBED since last month’s leaked Supreme Court draft as video shows moment office of pro-life Washington GOP is torched

A pro-life Republican politician had his office firebombed on Monday, the latest in a spate of attacks against pregnancy centers and pro-life officials in the wake of a bombshell leaked Supreme court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v Wade.

Andrew Barkis, a Republican representing the Olympia in the Washington state legislature, had his Olympia office attacked around 4 a.m.

Monday’s attack was the 17th so far on a pregnancy support clinic or an office of a pro-life figure.

Pro-abortion Jane’s Revenge promises more violence now that “30 days of mercy” have expired

The Post Millennial reports in a 15 June 2022 article on the threats of the Left’s secret fire-bombing group “Jane’s Revenge.”

Pro-abortion militants Jane’s Revenge has declared that their 30 days of patience and mercy have come to an end. “Your thirty days expired yesterday,” they state in an open letter proffered on June 15. “We offered an honourable way out. You could have walked away. Now the leash is off. And we will make it as hard as possible for your campaign of oppression to continue.”

“We have demonstrated in the past month how easy and fun it is to attack. We are versatile, we are mercurial, and we answer to no one but ourselves,” and then they stated their threats.

“We promised to take increasingly drastic measures against oppressive infrastructures. Rest assured that we will, and those measures may not come in the form of something so easily cleaned up as fire and graffiti. Sometimes you will see what we do, and you will know that it is us.

“Sometimes you will think you merely are unlucky, because you cannot see the ways which we interfere in your affairs. But your pointless attempts to control others, and make life more difficult, will not be met passively. Eventually your insurance companies, and your financial backers will realize you are a bad investment.”

The group takes responsibility for recent attacks on pregnancy and pro-life centers in “Madison WI, Ft. Collins CO, Reisertown MA, Olympia WA, Des Moines IA, Lynwood WA, Washington DC, Ashville NCBuffalo NY, Hollywood FL, Vancouver WA, Frederick MA, Denton TX, Gresham OR, Eugene OR, Portland OR.”

“You have seen that we are real, and that we are not merely pushing empty words,” they state, noting that in addition to the visible attacks mentioned, they “work in countless locations invisibly.”

“You know that we are serious.” Much of their graffiti reads “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you.”

Jane’s Revenge shared their first communique on May 8, stating that they would be planning a “Night of Rage” to meet the Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health, a ruling which would spell an end to the precedent of the federal legalization of abortion. A draft decision was leaked in April, and Chief Justice Roberts confirmed its veracity. That draft has sparked protests and activist demonstrations across the country, including in front of the homes of those Supreme Court Justices who signed the majority opinion.

The Biden Justice Department’s Shameful Pandering to Bomb-Throwing Rioters

The National Review points out how shamefully inadequate the Biden regime has proven itself in providing equal justice under the law. Instead, Biden panders to bomb-throwing rioters (and, of course, their lawyers) and lies to to public as he tries to paint himself as a center-of-the-road Democrat.

The foundational duty of government is to maintain public safety and order, without which neither liberty nor prosperity is possible. The dramatic story of the summer of 2020 was the outbreak of riots and protests following the murder of George Floyd. More than a dozen people were killed and a billion or more dollars in damages were caused, including the destruction of many businesses. This cried out for a vigorous response.

Instead, apparently viewing the cause as a righteous one, Democratic prosecutors at the federal, state, and local levels have been scandalously soft on the many crimes committed in the course of those riots and protests. Large numbers of offenders were let off scot-free by progressive prosecutors; even those whose crimes caused death have been given sentences no longer than ten years. In so doing, the progressive district attorneys and the Justice Department have imperiled public safety in our cities and undermined public confidence in the even-handed administration of law. It is unsurprising that urban crime and violence have spiked in many cities after the law failed to restore order or punish criminality.

The Biden administration has just added to this shameful spectacle by retroactively reducing the plea-bargained sentence in one of the most high-profile of those crimes, in which two white-shoe lawyers in Brooklyn threw a Molotov cocktail into a police car.

Colinford Mattis and Urooj Rahman were well-compensated attorneys in their early thirties when they joined the protesting mob in May 2020. Rahman was caught on tape throwing the firebomb into an unoccupied police car, and Mattis was arrested with more such improvised explosives in his car and was videotaped trying to hand them out to others. These are gravely serious crimes, more so than those committed by all but a tiny handful (at most) of the people charged in connection with January 6. An unapologetic Rahman told reporters later, “The only way they hear us is through violence.”

Mattis and Rahman pleaded guilty last year to one count of possessing and making an explosive device, a charge carrying up to ten years in prison. Both of them will quite properly be disbarred. Federal prosecutors sought to charge them with still more serious offenses for distribution but, in a shocking reversal, have now agreed to recommend a prison sentence of 18 to 24 months for charges carrying a maximum of five years. Even for a Justice Department that has bent over backwards to be lenient towards left-wing protesters while throwing the book at right-wing protesters, a retreat from a previous plea agreement is a dramatic display of favoritism for left-wing political violence.

Scouring the Internet reveals that Biden has not condemned the attempted assassination of Brett Kavanaugh

We have endured the January 6 Commission hearings being televised. We have heard a number of statements by Dementia Joe where he repeated the any of a number of lies he likes to repeat regarding the riot.

However, like the George Floyd riots of 2018-2020, we have not heard a peep from Dementia Joe regarding the firebombing of pregnancy assistance centers (places poor women go to get free medical care, diapers, daycare, baby formula, and similar help).

Why is Joe standing up for criminals and not for moms and dads?

Although the National Review wants to throw the 6 January “rioters” under the bus, I would like to compare apples to apples

Since we know that two fire bombers got a prison sentence of 18 to 24 months for charges carrying a maximum of five years, let’s look at the 6 January charges and sentences (I have bolded in red the instances where protesting got a harsher punishment than fire bombing):

In reviewing these charges and sentences, I don’t see attempted murder or arson

In Houston, a 5-time-released-by-Democrat-judges-on-bond felon executed a 9-year-old girl and attempted to kill her mother. Of course, that made the girl the 175th victim of the Democrat felony bond reform.

Over a year ago, I remember blogging on how leftist activist Holly Zoller transported Antifa weapons across state lines. Nothing significant has happened to her.

The “open letter” (noted in the article above) by Jane’s Revenge will probably be just as ignored as the assassination attempt on Kavanaugh.

So, if Democrats can be so lenient with murderous felons, why can’t Biden or any Democrat below him be forgiving of Republican protesters who hurt nobody, killed nobody, burnt no buildings, and flattened no property?


Two more points of prayer on the Supreme Court Dobbs case

Amy Coney Barrett is right about safe haven laws

The Washington Examiner discusses how Amy Coney Barrett has it right regarding the effect of safe haven laws on abortion.

Regardless of what the pro-choice side says, Amy Coney Barrett is correct: No one is forcing a woman to raise a child once he or she is born.

Last week, the Supreme Court justice inquired about safe haven laws during oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The case involves a 2018 Mississippi law that bans abortion after 15 weeks, except to protect the life of the mother.

During oral arguments on Wednesday, Barrett mentioned safe haven laws when talking about Roe v. Wade. She said, “Insofar as you and many of your amici focus on the ways in which forced parenting, forced motherhood, would hinder women’s access to the workplace and to equal opportunities, it’s also focused on the consequences of parenting and the obligations of motherhood that flow from pregnancy. Why don’t the safe haven laws take care of that problem? It seems to me that it focuses the burden much more narrowly.”

Safe haven laws offer an easy way for a mother to drop off an unharmed, unwanted newborn baby with no questions asked and without any legal obligation to the child. Depending on the state , a mother may have 72 hours after giving birth or up to 90 days to do so.

States, municipalities, and safe haven locations, including police stations and fire departments, need to do a better job of promoting where safe haven sites are in their respective communities with additional signage. However, Barrett is correct that this is a serious alternative to abortion — and one that doesn’t kill a child.

Safe haven laws exist to prevent unwanted children from being killed. They were implemented in all 50 states as a direct response to infanticide. In Massachusetts, for example, someone gave birth at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the baby was found dead in a trash can. So the Democratic-dominated Legislature worked with then-Gov. Mitt Romney to enact a safe haven law.

Safe haven laws weren’t in place at the time of the Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey rulings. This vital alternative to abortion came about in the late 1990s and early 2000s. As Texas governor, George W. Bush signed the first one into law in 1999. Therefore, it is something for Supreme Court justices to keep in mind when ruling on this case. It’s something that they didn’t have to consider when deciding those older cases.

(Read where the science takes us regarding the start of life at the Washington Examiner)

The “Baby Moses Law” (signed by then-Governor G. W. Bush) has a story behind it

Oddly, many people do not associate the story of Moses with the “Baby Moses Law.” Although the story of Moses’ beginning (where a baby that would have died is saved when his mother courageously puts the child in a place to be adopted anonymously) fits the situation presented by this law, our society has drifted from its Biblical moorings so much that it no longer recognizes the core stories.

Possibly, this might be part of the reason for the need for the law.

Nonetheless, we need to pray that this law continue to protect children and that the current trend in adoption (especially in Christian families) either continue or accelerate.

The Supreme Court isn’t a medical board or legislature — it shouldn’t make abortion law

The New York Post allows Rich Lowry to observe that the Supreme Court was not created as a legislature (therefore, it should not create any law from whole cloth). Likewise, it is not a medical board (therefore, it has no place in sanctioning medical procedures).

At times, you might have been forgiven for thinking that oral arguments over the Dobbs case were being held before the Health and Human Services Committee of the Pennsylvania state Senate or some other legislative body.

Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, involving Mississippi’s ban on abortion after 15 weeks, is, of course, the most consequential abortion case to reach the Supreme Court in decades. The arguments, as you would expect, featured plenty of intricate legal discussion. 

They also delved at length into questions of policymaking that aren’t rightly in the ambit of the Supreme Court — and that the court never should have taken on in Roe and Casey, the abortion cases that are on the verge of collapse owing to their manifest constitutional shabbiness.

Indeed, the discussion was relatively light on what is the supposed source of a constitutional right to abortion. The advocates opposed to the Mississippi law located it somewhere in the 14th Amendment, even though, as Justice Samuel Alito pointed out, no one at the time of the amendment’s passage believed it guaranteed a sweeping right to abortion.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor even said at one point that the Supreme Court comes up with decisions all the time that aren’t directly grounded in the Constitution.

In Roe and Casey, the court made the mistake of thinking that it should be the arbiter of a fraught social and moral issue and essentially crafted an abortion policy for the entire nation without any democratic input. Because pro-choicers like the outcome, they have become invested in the notion that Supreme Court precedent, even bad precedent, should stay on the books forevermore. 

One of the more jaw-dropping moments of the arguments was when Alito nearly cornered Biden administration Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar into maintaining that it would have been a mistake for the Supreme Court to overturn its hideous pro-segregation decision in Plessy v. Ferguson too soon.

The conservative justices and the abortion-rights advocates went back and forth on where the court should draw the line on allowing restrictions on abortion. Prelogar and Julie Rickelman, a lawyer representing the Mississippi abortion clinic in the case, insisted that it should be at fetal viability, around 23 or 24 weeks of pregnancy. 

According to Rickelman, the line of viability is “objectively verifiable and doesn’t delve into philosophical questions about when life begins.” This is in doubt, though. Some premature babies have survived after being born at 21 weeks, and many abortion-rights advocates deny that unborn babies have any moral standing at any point in a pregnancy.

Sotomayor said that believing an unborn baby has a right to be protected under law is a religious view. If so, why does the Supreme Court get to impose its “religious view” that the state can protect a fetus after 24 weeks but not before? She and her colleagues sit on the highest court in the land, not the Sanhedrin.

Maybe this COVID pandemic is a God-send, since it may get people to think about getting the court out of enforcing health

Maybe people will see the hypocrisy of shouting “my body, my choice” when it comes to killing a baby, but ignoring another person’s shout of “my body, my choice” when it comes to a jab to their own body.

Maybe people will see how the court has manufactured Roe from whole cloth now that both unelected and not-soon-to-face-election Democrats (and some RINOs, like Cheney) run roughshod over liberties in the name of a largely-manufactured crisis of COVID.

So, we need to pray for the opening of our own eyes to the predicament within our nation, our ability to communicate in a convincing and winsome way (but not childish), and the direction of our nation from here.


Predictions from the former Pentagon chief of staff, cases of Democrat civil war, Manchin puts a pro-life condition on accepting the Biden bill, and the Latino vote moves right

Patel predicts Durham probe will lead to indictments ‘at the top’ in coming months

On a recent airing of Maria Bartiromo, former Pentagon chief of staff Kash Patel discussed the Durham investigation and suggested that indictments might surround Fusion GPS, Glenn Simpson, and possibly even Director Wray.

Like Mr. Patel says, it took him upwards of five years to go after one case. Contrary to what Mr. Patel says, it may take Durham longer.

If the indicators are there for someone who is an expert in the business, then I am glad to hear that. However, as Mr. Patel alludes, this is a game of chess (not Candy Crush Saga or whatever game you pop up on your phone for a quick 10-second game).

Democrat civil war erupts with name-calling and leaks

The Daily Caller points out how civil war has broken out on the Democrat side with name calling and leaks.

Chaos has erupted within the Democratic Party after a member of Congress leaked the contents of a caucus meeting Friday as moderate and left-wing members work toward passing an infrastructure bill and a social spending package.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi initially promised a group of moderates, led by New Jersey Rep. Josh Gottheimer, that she would hold a vote for the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) on Thursday. However, Pelosi delayed the vote after failing to reach an agreement with left-wing members of her party, who will not vote for the package unless the Senate passes the as-yet unwritten Build Back Better Act through the reconciliation process.

House Democratic leaders will confiscate cell phones from members ahead of a Friday afternoon full caucus meeting with President Joe Biden, after one member leaked the entire contents of Friday morning’s full caucus meeting to Punchbowl News’ Jake Sherman.

Hopefully, the Democrats are starting to see the stupidity of spending trillions to get tens back

Hopefully, the Democrats have had it dawn on them that they can no longer play the Ponzi schemes that have characterized their programs so far. No more luring the masses in with promises of a future payout. No more dipping into the till. 

Manchin says reconciliation bill must include Hyde Amendment

The Hill reports on a demand of Joe Manchin regarding the Biden budget that has the Left in a tizzy: the bill must include the Hyde Amendment.

JoeManchinSen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said late Wednesday that an expansion of Medicaid that Democrats are seeking to pass as part of their massive reconciliation bill must include the Hyde Amendment to get his support.

“Yeah, we’re not taking the Hyde Amendment off. Hyde’s going to be on,” Manchin told National Review when asked about a proposed Medicaid-like program in the reconciliation bill.

“It has to be. It has to be. That’s dead on arrival if that’s gone,” Manchin, who has described himself as “pro-life, and proud of it,” added.

Under the Hyde Amendment, Medicaid and other federal programs are prohibited from covering abortion expenses. Government spending bills have included the stipulation since 1976. 

Some Democrats are pushing to include a Medicaid-like program in the reconciliation package in which the federal government would step in and provide coverage in the 12 GOP-led states that have so far declined to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.  

The Democrats’ proposal does not include language reflecting the Hyde Amendment. 

Democrats are trying to move a massive spending package that could include the Medicaid language through a process known as budget reconciliation, which prevents it from being filibustered. This means they could move the package through the Senate with no GOP votes, but they cannot afford a single Democratic defection. 

Bills have been routinely passed with Hyde Amendment language for years, but doing so has grown much more controversial among Democrats, and the new debate would come as many Democrats worry over access to abortion rights given state laws limiting the practice.

The Hyde Amendment was passed in 1978 and enforced in 1980

Therefore, under every president since Reagan and before Biden, the Hyde Amendment kept American tax dollars from being applied to abortions. Not so under “devoutly Catholic” Joe Biden.

If Senator Manchin can pull this off, this will be a pro-life victory against the most pro-abortion regime on record.

Why Democrats’ climate goals may test their Latino appeal

According to the Associated Press, the climate change goals of the Democrat party seem to be pulling them away from a constituency that focuses on jobs.

Pro-AmericanLatinaAt a recent house party near the U.S.-Mexico border, the conversation with Democratic congressional candidate Rochelle Garza flowed from schools and taxes to immigration and efforts to convert an old railway line into a hiking trail.

One thing that didn’t come up that Friday night over Corona beers and Domino’s deep dish pizza: the effort by Democrats in Washington to use a massive federal spending package to beat back climate change.

“It’s not that the district is more moderate or moderately more conservative,” said Garza, 36, an immigration lawyer running for the House seat held by retiring centrist Democrat Filemon Vela. “Talking about how you’re going to meaningfully impact families, and make healthier families and healthier communities, I think that matters to people a lot more than some of these hot button issues.”

Democrats nationally are poised to go bigger than ever on the environment as part of the sweeping spending package they are trying to muscle through Congress. President Joe Biden has traveled the country sounding the alarm, blaming a warming planet for devastation from wildfire-ravaged California to hurricane-battered New York and warning of a “code red for humanity.”

But that focus could create political problems in energy rich areas. That includes South Texas, where many Latino voters turned against Democrats during last year’s presidential election and winning them back could prove critical to the party’s hopes of retaining control of Congress during the 2022 midterms.

“They’re really making it easy on us,” said Mayra Flores, a 35-year-old respiratory care practitioner and organizer for Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign. Flores is also running for Vela’s seat and argues that Democrats are forcing Texans to choose between their energy sector jobs and curbing climate change.

Trump won 38% of the national Latino vote last year, 10 percentage points more from in 2016, according to the Pew Research Center. Some of his most dramatic gains came in heavily Hispanic areas that produce large amounts of oil and gas, including the district Garza and Flores want to represent.

It stretches from Brownsville, where there are proposals to build liquified natural gas terminals for export, more than 150 miles (240 kilometers) north to sparsely populated portions of the hydraulic fracturing-dependent Eagle Ford Shale.

Last year, Biden won Cameron County, which encompasses Brownsville and is about 90% Hispanic. But Trump’s margin of the vote increased there by 20 percentage points over 2016. Farther north, Trump flipped oil- and gas-producing, but still heavily Hispanic, Jim Wells and Kleberg counties.

“We are very dependent on oil and gas. That’s the reason you saw those numbers,” said Flores, who was born in Mexico, came to the United State at age 6 and picked cotton every summer growing up after age 12. “That’s what people do. That’s where they work.”

Biden has signed an executive order halting new oil and gas leases in federal territory, though it was blocked by a court order this summer.

The spending package being debate in Congress seeks to push efforts to fight climate change into overdrive, however. It includes language on instituting high fees for polluters and tax incentives for clean energy and electric cars, while introducing new requirements that the nation’s power grid rely more heavily on renewable energy sources.

Rolando Lozano, a 62-year-old manager at an electric utility, was one of 200-plus people who recently filled a community center in the border town of Harlingen, west of Brownsville, to see Flores and other Latino Republican candidates. He said Democrats have moved so far to the left that “it looks anti-American.”

A series of stories that tell a lot about how Democrats have pushed America to this point

Texas lawmakers learn that the heartbeat bill hysteria is not all hyperbole

American Family News points to the convoluted situation flowing from the heart of a person who treasures killing people and wants to make a point with the lawmakers who protected some babies.

MerrickGarlandJoeBidenAmerican Family News has reported that passage of the Heartbeat Act went mostly unnoticed by the public in May until the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Sept. 2 it would not hear an appeal seeking to stop the law. That announcement set abortion supporters on fire: Texas lawmakers were compared to the Taliban, and software company SalesForce announced it would relocate workers from the state if they felt unsafe.

The abortion-supporting U.S. Justice Dept. also filed suit for what it called the “open defiance of the Constitution, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi denounced the court for a “cowardly, dark-of-night decision.”

And those were some of the milder reactions.

According to, authorities in Payne County, Oklahoma have arrested Austin Wendell Lund, 20. He allegedly made direct threats to Texas lawmakers by name on Reddit, where he threatened to “end each one of you.”

The state lawmakers were first alerted to the threat by the Texas Dept. of Public Safety.

Authorities rightly flagged this as dangerous and pursued the individual,” says Schwartz, whose own pro-life group has been harassed and threatened, too, after the court ruling angered abortion supporters.

According to the pro-life activist, the other side is filled with angry, hurting people whose feelings are demonstrated in their threats and comments.

As Tony Perkins can attest, liberal violence is nothing new

Liberals (like the Southern Poverty Law Center) have a history of enraging their lunatic base. In fact, some nine years after an attack on the Family Research Council by a gay man who had become enraged by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s description of the FRC as “anti-gay,” the SPLC kept their listing of the FRC on its “hate map.”

Additionally, it seems that liberals still find that allowing reporting on this event to be threatening to their cause. YouTube has restricted all videos showing the SPLC-supporting gay man entering the offices of the FRC. It seems that gun violence perpetrated by liberals cannot be memorialized.

Treasury Secretary Yellen says debt ceiling should be permanently abolished

The Washington Post reports on Secretary Yellen’s inane idea that the debt ceiling should be eliminated.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Thursday said lawmakers should abolish the legal limit on how much treasury can borrow to meet the federal government’s payment obligations, pushing lawmakers to eliminate the potential threat of a U.S. default.

Speaking to the House Financial Services Committee, Yellen said the current debt ceiling law can prove “very destructive” by creating a legal debt limit that has to be raised separate from what Congress has already ordered the federal government to spend. Treasury is currently running out of “emergency measures” to pay its obligations after the most recent suspension of the debt ceiling lapsed in August.

Congressional Republicans have refused to help Democrats raise or suspend the borrowing limit even though they supported lifting the borrowing cap during the Trump administration.

“When Congress legislates expenditures and puts in place tax policy that determines taxes, those are the crucial decisions Congress is making,” Yellen told Rep. Sean Casten (D-Ill.). “If to finance those spending and tax decisions, it’s necessary to issue additional debt, I believe it’s very destructive to put the president and myself — the treasury secretary — in a situation where we might not be able to pay the bills that result from those past decisions.”

Yellen’s new statements about abolishing the debt limit come as Treasury officials have instructed federal agencies to review their spending estimates for October, two administration officials familiar with the matter said, as the U.S. government is increasingly at risk of running out of cash to meet its payment obligations. Officials in Treasury’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service have told federal agencies to scrutinize their estimates for outgoing expenditures and incoming revenue to ensure they are as precise as possible for October, the officials said. Should Congress fail to raise or suspend the debt ceiling, Yellen has said that the U.S. will by Oct. 18 run out of flexibility to ensure it meets all of its payments.

Not only no, but “No, never, not in my lifetime”

If the people don’t have this whip to crack over the heads of both sides of the aisle, the only thing that will happen in Congress is a group of people being made fat and slothful (and those people will not roam outside of the Capitol).

Why is Washington so dysfunctional?

The Washington Post then asks the question that should not need to be asked: “Why is Washington so dysfunctional?”

We are a day away from the possibility of a third government shutdown in as many years. To which you are justified in asking: What is up with Washington? Why can’t lawmakers get their act together and do their most basic jobs, like funding the government?

I called up some people who think deeply on this topic: Washington Post senior congressional correspondent Paul Kane, former Republican congressman Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania and former Democratic congresswoman Elizabeth Esty of Connecticut.

Their takeaways: Congress is struggling and there are lots of reasons — gerrymandering; liberals moving into cities while conservatives move rural; social media cheering on the polarization; and the demise of incentives for compromise, like earmarks. These very smart people are pessimistic that Congress can become an equal, functioning branch of government anytime soon.

Here are excerpts from our interviews, which have been lightly edited for length and clarity.

Dent: Well, Congress is certainly struggling and under tremendous pressure. I believe its Article I powers have been weakened, relative to the executive and the courts. So I think it’s a weaker branch of government than it once was.

Esty: It is very badly broken. I had hoped and continue to hope that the events of Jan. 6 would strike the fear of God into enough people to realize that if the legislative branch does not function, we rely way too heavily on the presidency, and that is a very dangerous place for a democracy to be in.

Kane: It’s been pretty damaged, from basically the 2008 Wall Street meltdown, and it has spun at various degrees of speed downward every since. There have been some big things they got done — the Affordable Care Act of 2010; Dodd-Frank Wall Street reforms of 2010; the Budget Control Act of 2011, which put parameters on government spending, producing savings; and Republicans did a big tax cut in 2017. And last year, in the face of an absolute economic and health crisis from the coronavirus, Congress did come together and approve trillions in spending. But beyond that, we have reached a point where issues that have 70 percent, 80 percent, sometimes 90 percent of support from the public just can’t pass. They probably can’t even get a vote these days.

(This question produced long, thoughtful answers from our interviewees. Kane has written about this extensively .Here are some highlights.)

Kane: By the time 2013 rolled around and you have divided government — a Democratic president in [Barack] Obama, Republicans controlling the House, Democrats controlling the Senate — you basically have a system of government where nobody has any skin in the game anymore. They used to let members do earmarks, these narrow projects you could get for your district without a lot of scrutiny. It led to some serious corruption for a few members of Congress. That was a bad, bad system. But there were ways to create a better, cleaner system that would get members to have some real skin in these bills, and that’s never been dealt with. For 10 years, they were without earmarks altogether, and Congress was on the brink of shutdowns all the time.

Esty: The rise of social media. It’s a technology that has crated enormous incentives to be intransigent, outraged and outrageous. Social media is wildly disruptive, and it has been no place more disruptive than in the political realm. You get likes, you get attention, you get on TV, you get money, you get power by not playing ball, by going straight to social media. You can be a brand new member of Congress — you can be Marjorie Taylor Greene, you can be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — and everybody knows their names and they raise a ton of money and they get on TV and are talked about all the time. And people who play by the rules, do their work in committee, get amendments done here and there, they get none of that. The first Democratic bill signed by Donald Trump was mine. So I was good at getting the legislation done, but it doesn’t get covered at all by the media. People don’t believe it’s happening anyway, and the narrative that it’s a train wreck in Congress is a pretty easy story to tell.

Dent: I think in America today, many politicians view their political safety [as reliant on] tacking hard to their bases. Fewer members of Congress tack to the center, because they don’t see a reward for compromise and consensus. I certainly learned this during my service. After the tea party wave of 2010, it became difficult just to perform the most basic operations and fund the government. I found I was in the minority often within my own party voting for these things. I remember when Obama was president, and we were the majority in the House, and I was one of 29 members to vote [to raise] the debt ceiling. Republican leadership was begging us to vote for it, and I said I’d be happy to do it, but let’s get me more company, to make it a little less painful for us. Now leadership is saying don’t vote for the debt ceiling. When [Donald] Trump was president, many Republicans voted against the debt ceiling. Now he’s not president, leadership are whipping against it.

It’s not that Republicans wanted to push the debt into the billions and now the Democrats want to push it into the trillions

The issue is that significant portions of both parties have decided to ignore the will of the people. When large groups band together and still get no response from government, that signals the existence of a problem.

When an independent audit finds some 57,000 votes in question and government-lead audits remain mired in Democrat/RINO-supported bickering, there has to be some acknowledgement of a problem (at least as soon as it effects the outcome of a Democrat’s race or hits the pocket of a Democrat business).

Undoing Joe Biden’s America at the state level

Pushing back against Biden’s radical pro-abortion stance

Texas approves seven pro-life bills

Breitbart reports that Texas has passed seven pro-life bills.

The Texas Senate has passed seven pro-life bills this week, including a “heartbeat” measure and one that would ban elective abortions entirely should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade.

All of the bills have now been sent to the state House for hearings and debate.

Pro-life-protestersThe Texas Abolition Strategy (SB 1647) is an omnibus measure that includes three separate pro-life provisions; the Heartbeat Act (SB 8), which would ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected; and the Preborn NonDiscrimination Act (PreNDA) (SB 1173), which would abolish abortions sought due to the sex, ethnicity, or disability of the unborn baby.

Other pro-Life bills that cleared final passage in the Texas Senate are the Regulating Abortion-Inducting Drugs Act (SB 394), which would outlaw the delivery by mail of drugs that induce abortion; the Trigger Abortion Ban Act (SB 9), which seeks to abolish all remaining elective abortions in Texas if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the decision in the 1973 case of Roe v. Wade; and the Every Mother Matters Act (SB 802), would require women seeking abortions to be able to obtain free resources and counseling by a medical or mental health professional who would provide accurate information about abortion, assistance to the woman and her family, and a screening for abuse, neglect, and human trafficking.

A seventh bill (SB 650) would block taxpayer-funded abortion logistical support, banning supplying funds for costs that are indirectly associated with obtaining an abortion.

Texas Right to Life said in a statement it celebrates the passage of the pro-life bills and “thanks Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick and the Texas Senate for this historic Session.”

Patrick listed the Heartbeat Act and the Human Life Protection Act, or the Abortion Ban Trigger, among his priority pieces of legislation for the 2021 session.

Of course, this pro-life work is good and necessary — but it is not all that is happening in Texas

Just as Christ pushed back on death for those who would accept his gift, believe in him, and accept him as Lord — we are called to stand up for orphans and widows.

Still, this is not all that has happened over the past few weeks in Texas to stand up against Joe Biden’s totalitarianism. The Texas Senate passed SB7 over to the Texas House. Hopefully, we will soon have a law that eliminates the loss of the private ballot (drive-through voting — something offered by Democrat Chris Hollins in nine Democrat districts and one Republican district), stops partisan election judges from throwing out poll watchers, and prevents corrupt politicians to mail out unrequested mail-in ballots.

Standing against the constant COVID fearmongering

Texas (and other open states) see a drop in COVID

According to Texas state records, COVID levels have dropped dramatically. In a state with a population of over 23 million citizens, there are less than 3,000 COVID cases requiring hospitalization and only 837 new COVID cases requiring hospitalization within the past month.


Note that the COVID hot spots seem to be the Democrat areas of Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, and Biden’s border crossing detention centers (including the centers opened in Odessa, McAllen, and elsewhere across the Rio Grand Valley).

Although COVID cases have dropped, do you think Judge Hidalgo has taken Harris County or Houston from Code Red?

Despite the dearth of COVID cases, Lina Hidalgo has refused to take the county out of Code Red classification. Ever since she was first allowed to grab power due to COVID, she has refused to loosen her grip on the dictatorial powers. At a time that even some in the press have started to ask why we are still in CODE RED, Lina will not loosen her grip holding your mask to your face.

Arkansas legislature values children over transgenderism

Arkansas legislature overrides governor’s veto of law prohibiting body-altering treatments to minors

The Hill tries to put a transgender-friendly spin on a veto that the Arkansas legislature overrode. In actuality, this law protects minors from those who would perform life-altering surgeries and treatments.

AmericanArkansasFlagsAmid a national flurry of state restrictions on transgender health care opportunities, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) vetoed a health care bill passed by the state legislature that would prohibit doctors from performing gender reassignment surgeries and providing other health care services that aid gender reassignment.

Hutchinson vetoed the bill on Monday. During a press conference, he said the bill is “not the right path” for transgender adolescents under the age of 18. 

On Tuesday, just one day later, the General Assembly overrode the gubernatorial veto, pressing the bill forward into law. 

The bill, denoted as House Bill 1570 (HB 1570) in the state legislature, was popular among state legislators. Hutchinson said he expected the General Assembly to override his veto with a simple majority.

“I am hopeful though that my action will cause conservative Republican legislators to think through the issue again and hopefully come up with a more restrained approach that allows a thoughtful study of the science and ethics surrounding the issue before acting,” he commented following his veto on Monday. 

Hutchinson has passed bills that restrict the transgender community prior to this, including one which allow doctors to decline to perform select procedures based on their individual beliefs and another that prohibited individuals born biologically male to participate in women’s high school and collegiate sports. 

He saw HB 1570, or the Save Adolescents from Experimentations (SAFE) Act, as a government overreach into the lives of residents.  

“I want people in Arkansas and across the country to understand that whether their transgender or otherwise that they are loved, they are appreciated…and we want to send a message of tolerance and diversity,” he continued. 

He also called the legislators supporting the bill “well-intentioned” regarding their sponsorship of the SAFE Act. 

One of the bill’s sponsors, Representative Robin Lundstrom (R) has yet to issue a public comment on the veto or override, but supported Hutchinson’s passage of the separate bill prohibiting biological males from participating in women’s sports.

To protect children, we prevent school nurses from handing aspirins to our kids. Shouldn’t we also prevent this kind of medical abuse?

In the name of protecting children, we have laws keeping parents from abusing children. We have laws that keep school nurses from handing out aspirins to our kids without a signed parental consent form. Shouldn’t we also make certain that children are not given drugs that would sterilize them or surgeries that will remove parts of their bodies that will affect them for the rest of their lives? When you consider that the greatest portion of gender dysphoric children grow out of that condition well before adulthood, why allow adults to facilitate poor decisions that will haunt those children forever?

To bring light to the debate that was occurring in Arkansas on 6 April 2021, consider the words of Tony Perkins at the Family Research Council:

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson (R) had a say in the SAFE Act — but he won’t have the final one. This afternoon, barely 24 hours after the governor tried to sink a bill to protect children from life-altering transgender surgery and drugs, the state legislature voted to override him. By a 71-24 vote in the house and 28-7 vote in the senate, leaders like Rep. Robin Lundstrum (R) sent a resounding message that they won’t be deterred from doing what’s right for Arkansas kids.

Monday, after the governor refused to stand up and do the right thing, Robin — the SAFE Act’s House sponsor — told me on “Washington Watch” that it was tough to watch. “… [A]s soon as the governor’s letter explaining the veto arrives, which I suspect will be [Tuesday] at one o’clock, we will address it then. And I hope that we can override the veto and we can protect children in Arkansas now.”

An hour after that letter arrived, she and her colleagues did act — voting for a second time to take that historic step and stop minors from making the worst mistake of their lives. When the governor implied in his veto press conference that the law wasn’t needed, Robin dismissed that notion completely. “I would strongly disagree. “No, we’re not doing surgery on children in Arkansas. But when you give chemicals to a child, when you give drugs to a child that will cause infertility and long-term health problems, it’s the same. If you cut off an arm or give a child the chemicals to cut off an arm, it’s the same. I don’t see the difference. We can’t just turn our back on children — and I think we can’t turn our backs on parents either. Kids are under a lot of pressure these days to go with the trend. And I think we need to have the parents back as well.”

Today, Arkansas had the backs of every mom, dad, and child in America. Our biggest congratulations to all of the courageous men and women who refused to be deterred — not by the governor, not by the Left, and not by the bullies in the media. The people of Arkansas have spoken. And not just for their children but for children around the country — who all have a better chance of protection now that this state has stepped up and shown them how it’s done.

The cost of social justice judges and District Attorneys

Parents blame Harris Co. criminal justice system for son’s murder

Houston Fox affiliate KRIV 26 reports that parents blame the murder of a man on the purported actions of social justice judges.

“Jecory was a loving happy person. He would always make you laugh,” said Antoinette Miles Jecory Miles’ mother. “He had two kids of his own I really enjoyed him and he will truly be missed.”

When 27-year-old Jecory Miles was gunned down three weeks ago, a four-year-old and a six-year-old lost their father.

“We still haven’t caught up with ourselves we’re still trying to make it each day as best we can,” said Jecory’s father Tremain Miles. “It’s been real devastating.”

Police say Wilburt Smith, 23, and Louis Anthony Shoulders, 25, are responsible for Miles’ murder.

“None of this should have ever happened because they both should have been in custody months ago before this occurred,” said Andy Kahan with CrimeStoppers.

According to court records, Smith and Shoulders committed an armed robbery together in 2015.

They both got a big break back then: probation instead of prison.

“While on probation both of them were charged with additional violent crimes,” Kahan said. “In Smith’s case, he was charged with at least three.”

But instead of revoking their probation 248th Criminal District Judge Hilary Unger let the pair post bonds after they allegedly committed new crimes even allowing Shoulders to remain free on just a PR bond.

As long as it is in your power, you cannot allow this to continue

We have a chance to remove the social justice judges and the District Attorney who have been releasing these criminals who have killed 66 innocent citizens in Harris County.

Just as I have spoken numerous times through this blog on the extreme evils of abortion and the stance Christians must take against it, I must also stand against the release of murderers in the name of “bail reform.” I do this because the Bible tells me:

Deliver those who are being taken away to death, And those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back. (Proverbs 24:11 NASB)

Also, it tells me:

Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin. (James 4:17 NASB)

Therefore, we must stand up for the innocent who will be killed by the release of felons.

Andy Kahan speaks out for the 66 who have died as the result of “bond reform”

In a 25 October 2020 Facebook Post, Andy Kahan, Victims’ Advocate at Crime Stoppers – Houston, has posted about the 66 victims of “bond reform.”

In the event that Facebook blocks this post that goes against a Soros-funded District Attorney, the text of his post has been included below:

The AMKK Crime News Network is now reporting 66 people killed by defendants released on multiple felony and or PR bonds in Harris County

A Seattle church fights the state saying, “No church should be forced to pay for abortions”

The Christian Broadcasting Network tells us of a Seattle church that has decided to fight the state rather than pay for abortions.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Kevin Theriot appeared on the Tuesday afternoon edition of CBN’s Newswatch to discuss the Cedar Park Assembly of God’s case.  Newswatch can be seen weekdays on the CBN News Channel.

A Seattle-area church is fighting in court for its religious rights that are supposed to be guaranteed under the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

The legal battle is underway because the state of Washington is trying to force churches to violate their pro-life religious beliefs in order to cover elective abortions in their health insurance plans.

The church filed its opening brief last week with the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, asking for a reversal of a lower court decision that dismissed the church’s lawsuit against the state of Washing­ton.

The lawsuit, Cedar Park Assembly of God of Kirkland v. Kreidler, challenges the constitutionality of Washington State Senate Bill 6219, which was signed into law in March 2018. The legislation requires Cedar Park to provide coverage for abortion if the church also offers maternity care coverage to its employees, or face fines and criminal penalties, including imprisonment.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing the church are challenging the constitutionality of the state’s abortion coverage demands. As a result of the state’s mandate, the church’s insurance carrier inserted surgical abortion coverage directly into the church’s health plan. The insurer indicated that it would remove the offensive coverage if a court were to hold that the state law is unconstitutional.

“No church should be forced to cover abortions, and certainly not a church that dedicates its ministry to protecting and celebrating life like Cedar Park does,” said ADF Legal Counsel Elissa Graves. “Cedar Park believes and teaches that every human life begins at conception and is worthy of protection until natural death, so providing insurance coverage for abortions is clearly not something the church can or should be forced to do.”

“And Cedar Park doesn’t simply believe in the importance of human life, it puts those beliefs into practice by partnering with a local pregnancy care center, hosting an annual camp for foster care children, and ministering to hundreds of couples struggling with infertility. The state has no legitimate legal basis to force this church—or any other—into contradicting its foundational belief that human life is sacred,” Graves explained.

This case seems to re-litigate the case of the Little Sisters of the Poor

Just as left-wing forces in and out of Colorado’s government have continually attacked Jack Phillips, it seems that the Left is intent on forcing religious institutions into paying for abortion.

Hopefully, since a Trump-appointee just used common sense and dismissed a Council on American-Islamic Relations lawsuit against a professor who taught the truth about jihad attacks on Americans, maybe this will get thrown out as soon as it gets to the federal level. (Of course, this assumes that Biden does not get elected and reverses the common-sense judicial appointments.)

It is exponentially unlikely that you can be both Christian and Democrat

While the focus of Father James Altman falls on those in the leadership of the Catholic Church, those who would follow the destructive Marxist politicization of the Catholic Church, and those who have been led astray, the predominance of the lessons he presents come from scripture and apply to all Christians. While he points out that he believes “You cannot be both a Democrat and a Catholic,” I believe the same scriptures and homilies will point toward the concept that “you cannot be both a Democrat and a Christian.”

Following are the words of Father Altman (along with endnotes in red regarding the scriptures which support or disagree with the point made).

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. Let us pray. Precious blood of Christ. Only begotten Son of the Eternal Father. Blood of the Incarnate Word of God. Blood falling upon the Earth in the agony. Blood shed profusely in the scourging. Blood flowing forth in the Crowning of Thorns. Blood poured out on the Holy Cross. Price of salvation, without which there is no forgiveness. Eucharistic drink and refreshment of souls. Save us. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Well, family, we are going to have something right from the beginning of the Baltimore catechism. Our basic catechism — basic foundation for our whole faith. Our purpose in life, which is to know, love, and serve God1. It’s human nature that we will not willingly serve a God whom we do not love and will not love a God we do not know2.

So here’s the thing: I don’t love anybody in Borneo because I don’t know anyone in Borneo. So, I don’t get up in the morning with any particular inclination or inspiration to serve anyone in Borneo. But if I do not wake up in the morning with an inclination and in aspiration to serve Almighty God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) then “Houston, we’ve got a problem.”

And the problem in the world today, as it was in Noah’s day, and as it was in Abraham’s, Lot’s, and Sodom and Gomorrah’s day, as it was (as Jesus warned us it would be) is that there are way too many people who don’t know the first thing about Almighty God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). So that, truth be told, they do not love him. And so you can see in the many godless politicians out there and the godless educational system and the godlessness of so many people. They are most definitely are not serving him. They are not fulfilling their purpose in life: to know, to love, and to serve God.

Oh, you’re just being political. Father Altman is too political. Politics has no place in the Catholic Church. Baloney. Pope Benedict the 16th said the church is not a political power. It’s not a party, but (at least it is supposed to be) it is a moral power3. Therefore, since politics fundamentally should be a moral enterprise, the church in this sense has something to say about politics. Therefore when politics and politicians act in an immoral way, we most certainly do have a duty and the obligation to speak up and speak up about it. When they complain, it’s “you’re bunch of Hypocrites.” Capital H.

Guess who was just a premier speaker at the Democratic National Convention? None other than the hyper-confusion-spreading-heretic James Martin SJ. I guess it so I guess it’s okay for James Martin to spout off for the Democrats on their National stage, but God forbid a priest speak out against their Godless platform. Here’s a memo to clueless baptized Catholics out there. You cannot be a Catholic and be a Democrat. Period.

The party platform absolutely is against everything the Catholic Church teaches. So just quit pretending that you’re Catholic and vote Democrat. Repent of your support of that party and its platform or face the fires of hell4. Yes, Virginia, there is a hell. There is a well-known cleric who seems to be putting out there that hell is an empty place. Sorry, buddy. It’s not what Jesus said.

Jesus said many are going to choose that broad road to destruction5 and 6. Only a few are going to choose the narrow, very difficult road, to the narrow gate, to heaven. There will be 60 million and counting aborted babies standing at the Gates of Heaven barring your Democrat entrance. And nothing you can say will ever excuse you for your direct or indirect support of that diabolical agenda. Period. The end.

It’s too bad there are so many gutless cowards in the clergy who refuse to speak up and speak out on that truth and make it crystal clear. There should be no confusion among any Catholic.

At the end of the day, I do research. And I actually researched and researched all the data and the information. I crunched the numbers and finally came up with a pretty close approximate total of how many Catholics voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012.

Zero. Wrap your minds around that, dear family. There were a lot of pretenders, a lot of imposters, a lot of people masquerading as Catholics: laity and clergy alike. It was Zero faithful Catholics who voted for that godless politician who had the audacity to blaspheme and say “God bless Planned Parenthood” (most racist organization and the face of this planet, founded to wipe out black babies). Wilton Gregory, figure it out.

But, back to hypocrisy, to those who complain that I’m too political. The complainers, the hypocrites (by the way) always have always come from the left (both laity and clergy alike). In addition to thinking it’s a-okay for James Martin to prance up on the Democrats National stage certain of the hierarchy, think nothing about ripping into Donald Trump because somehow Trump has differing views about National sovereignty and national borders.

No problem about stuffing things like the climate change hoax from the political Arena into the Catholic Church. Here in the US, in addition to James Martin, the St. Anthony Messenger has two major political statements: one against Trump in support of DACA (which means criminal illegal aliens) and the other supporting the Southern Poverty Law Center (which seems to be one of the most godless, communist, anti-American, left-wing, radical organizations in the United States). And it went along with ripping on Trump and supporting Wilton Gregory’s horrific attack on the one best pro-life president and his Catholic wife.

You know, the Bishop recently said to me, “It’s no wonder the faithful have lost confidence in the Bishops because so many of them did such a horrible job on the scandal and still to this day don’t say anything about the worst miscreants. Oh, but they sure will get all over a priest instantly who simply speaks the truth.” Oh, yes, dear family, they’re quick as lightning when they want to be. To silence any priest who dares to step out of line and you really wonder why ordinary priests do not speak up. It’s out of fear, dear family. Shame on the hierarchy who covers up truth through conspiracy of fear. Listen, if there wasn’t truth spoken nobody but nobody would be listening to me for two seconds. And if all that is accomplished by speaking up is to let the proud and arrogant in the hierarchy realize that the faithful are suspicious and they have good reason.

And that they need to straighten up and straighten out this mess that they created or they continued before they lose yet more faithful to the fastest-growing denomination in the United States: ex-Catholics. Then job accomplished. But (dear family) there is truth spoken and it continues to slap faithful Catholics in the face with Notre Dame gives Obama and honorary doctorate, when James Martin takes the national stand for the Democrats and when a pro-life president gets ripped on by an Archbishop of the Catholic Church who then within days urges his priest to go all political and join hands with the Marxist protesters Black Lives Matter.

It is basic to our salvation: that we must … that our purpose in life is to know, love, and serve God. We have a duty and an obligation to know Him. We serve Him unto martyrdom red or white. It is human nature that we will not willingly serve a god whom we do not love and we will not love a God. We do not know the reason why we are seeing the signs of the times the cataclysm that’s approaching that we have been warned about our Blessed Mother warned us about it. The reason why we’ve seen this is that way too many people do not know God through their fault, through their fault, through their most grievous fault. Too many Shepherds of the church haven’t taught them.

In the name of the Father, Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

First let me point out the scripture references in this video

1 Matthew 22:37

And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’

21 John 4:8-20

The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us. If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.

3Seeing that Christians are called to protect orphans in Exodus 22:22; Job 29:12; Psalm 10:14; Psalm 68:5; Psalm 82:3; Psalm 146:9; Isaiah 1:17; Acts 20:35; and James 1:27, I must agree that we are a moral force. Additionally, since Jesus noted the hedge of protection around children in Matthew 18:6-10, we must act as a moral force. Consider also the commands to Christians to take care of widows (see Exodus 22:22-23; Psalm 146:9; 1 Timothy 5:3; and James 1:27). Finally, in Christ’s founding statement on the Church (Matthew 16:18), Jesus said that the “gates of Hell would not prevail against the church;” therefore, the ultimate container for evil will not stand against the workings of the Church (if the Church will act).

4Salvation depends on an individual’s acceptance of Jesus as Savior (John 3:16; John 5:24; Romans 3:21-26; and many other verses). In other words, we do not earn our way to heaven, it is a gift from God (Ephesians 2: 8 & 9; 2 Timothy 1:9; Romans 6:23; and other verses). However, if we have been saved, our life will be changed to the point that we will show it by performing works (James 2:14-26; John 14:12; 2 Corinthians 5:17; and many other verses). Therefore, I cannot tell you that voting for a Democrat will bar you from heaven. However, the chance that a leader of the Democrat party will walk the golden streets of heaven matches the chance that a high-ranking Nazi will likewise walk those streets. The Nazi hierarchy killed 6 million Jews along with Gypsies, homosexuals, and others they deemed unfit. Americans, supported by the Democrats, have killed 66 million defenseless babies for convenience, disability, and other causes.

5Matthew 7:13‭-‬14

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

6Matthew 7:21‭-‬23

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

Sister Dr. Deirdre Byrne on the marginalized among us (full text)

Sister Dr. Deirdre Byrne, a surgeon and member of Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, advocated for the marginalized among us. As a veteran and a member of the faith community, she had much to say on 26 August 2020.

Good evening. I’m Sister Dede Byrne and I belong to the community of the Little Workers of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Last Fourth of July, I was honored to be one of the president’s guest at his Salute to America celebration. I must confess that I recently prayed while in Chapel, begging God to allow me to be a voice and instrument for human life and now here I am speaking at the Republican National Convention. I guess you better be careful for what you pray for.

My journey to religious life is not a traditional route, if there is such a thing. In 1978 as a medical school student at Georgetown University, I joined the Army to help pay for my tuition and ended up devoting 29 years to the military, serving as a doctor and a surgeon in places like Afghanistan and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. After much prayer and contemplation. I entered my religious order in 2002, working to serve the poor and the sick in Haiti, Sudan, Kenya, Iraq, and in Washington, DC.

Humility is at the foundation of our order which makes it very difficult to talk about myself, but I can speak about my experience working for those fleeing war-torn and impoverished countries all around the world.

Those refugees all share a common experience. They have been all marginalized: viewed as insignificant, powerless, and voiceless. And while we tend to think of the marginalized as living beyond our borders, the truth is the largest marginalized group in the world can be found here in the United States. They are the unborn.

As Christians, we first met Jesus as a stirring embryo in the womb of an unwed mother and saw him born nine months later in the poverty of the cave. It’s no coincidence that Jesus stood up for what was just and was under ultimately crucified because what he said wasn’t politically correct or fashionable. As followers of Christ, we are called to stand up for life against the politically correct or fashionable of today. We must fight against a legislative agenda that supports and even celebrates destroying life in the womb. Keep in mind, the laws we create define how we see our humanity and we must ask ourselves, “What are we saying when we go into a womb and snuff out an innocent, powerless voices life?”

As a physician I can say without hesitation life begins at conception. While what I have to say may be difficult for some to hear, I am saying it because I’m not just pro-life. I’m pro-eternal-life and I want all of us to end up in heaven together someday. Which brings me to why I’m here today.

Donald Trump is the most pro-life president that this nation has ever had — defending life at all stages. His belief in the sanctity of life transcends politics. President Trump will stand up against Biden Harris, who are the most anti-life presidential ticket ever — even supporting the horrors of late-term abortion and infanticide.

Because of his courage and conviction, President Trump has earned the support of America’s pro-life community.

Moreover he has a nationwide of religious standing behind him. You’ll find us here with our weapon of choice the rosary. So thank you. Mr. President. We are all praying for you.

Starbucks’ brief lapse into sanity did not last

Starbucks will allow employees to wear Black Lives Matter shirts, pins

Houston ABC affiliate KTRK reports that Starbucks has stepped back from its position of being autonomous from Black Lives Matter.

Less than a day after I posted about Starbucks having seen through the Left’s “peaceful” Seattle narrative, Starbucks returned to its liberal roots.

StarbucksDoorStarbucks is speaking out after reports of an alleged policy that bans its employees from wearing accessories or clothing related to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Many on social media expressed their disgust and anger after learning about this alleged rule, calling on others to boycott Starbucks.

In a statement to the ABC 7 Chicago I-Team, Starbucks said:

“Know you’ve been following Starbucks as we continue to listen to our partners (employees) about how they want to take a stand for justice, while proudly wearing the green apron and standing united together. We will continue to work closely with community leaders, civil rights leaders, organizations, and our partners to understand the role that Starbucks can play, and to show up in a positive way for our communities.

Starbucks stands in solidarity with our Black partners, community and customers, and understand the desire to express themselves. As our latest step towards this commitment, we are partnering with the Starbucks Black Partner Network and Black Starbucks leaders to make 250,000 shirts available to our company-operated partners in U.S. and Canada to affirm our support at this critical time in our history. This small effort allows us to abide by store policies that are designed to maintain a safe and welcoming sense of community. Until these shirts arrive in stores, partners will be able to wear their BLM pin or t-shirt in passionate support of their community and humanity.

An “alleged” policy rescinded by alleged idiots

Like a dog that returns to its vomit Is a fool who repeats his folly. (Proverbs 26:11 NASB)

It seems that few remember the destructive tendencies of those within the indigenous left. They don’t want us to remember it was the Pacific-Northwest leftists who:

Still, it seems really odd that Starbucks would not stand against the movement starting in the CHAZ, since:

Now it seems that the chickens are coming home to roost. Now it seems that anarchy has forced these leftists into controlling the world around them using all of the means that they have decried for years.

Now, we find them

But we also find them

  • Ignoring the needs of the weak and defenseless,
  • Denying free speech by escorting out any dissenters, and
  • Always being ready to offer a lame excuse for their hypocrisy

One Left-wing luminary recognizes the lunacy of the current Democrat course

In spite of the idiotic indications from the Seattle crowd and Starbucks, if the observations of Rolling Stone editor Matt Taibbi seep into the main stream of leftist thought, maybe there is some hope for some liberal segments. You see, as reported by Townhall, maybe there is some hope since Taibbi has worked to show the untenable aspects of some of Leftist thought. For example:

(Taibbi) notes that a lot of what Cotton was backed up by a majority of the American public. Also, it seems clear that these leftist clowns didn’t even read the column. The Philadelphia Inquirer sent their longtime editor, Stan Wischowski, packing for green-lighting a headline “Buildings Matter, Too.” Again, another view that’s supported by a healthy majority of voters; people value the protection of what they own. It’s not that hard. For the woke, this is problematic. Wischowski helped diversify the newsroom and helped the paper get a Pulitzer for their series on Philly school violence in his two-decade career at the paper, but screw him, right?

Taibbi is surgical in highlighting all of the nonsense, all of the weird acts of contrition being exhibited by white liberals that he rightfully describes as activities that are more in line with cult behavior. Of course, he calls Trump a clown but directs most of his criticism at the media industry that is collapsing under the infection of wokeness and political correctness that are terrorizing newsrooms. Moreover, the pervasive “moral mania,” as he calls it, has generated a list of the “Most Important Thing Ever” within the liberal media that is often met with the same fate: it’s either forgotten or dropped, leaving the public feeling empty as to why they should be outraged besides the ongoing war cry of “orange man…bad” (via Matt Taibbi):

On the other side of the political aisle, among self-described liberals, we’re watching an intellectual revolution. It feels liberating to say after years of tiptoeing around the fact, but the American left has lost its mind. It’s become a cowardly mob of upper-class social media addicts, Twitter Robespierres who move from discipline to discipline torching reputations and jobs with breathtaking casualness.

The leaders of this new movement are replacing traditional liberal beliefs about tolerance, free inquiry, and even racial harmony with ideas so toxic and unattractive that they eschew debate, moving straight to shaming, threats, and intimidation. They are counting on the guilt-ridden, self-flagellating nature of traditional American progressives, who will not stand up for themselves, and will walk to the Razor voluntarily.

They’ve conned organization after organization into empowering panels to search out thoughtcrime, and it’s established now that anything can be an offense, from a UCLA professor placed under investigation for reading Martin Luther King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” out loud to a data scientist fired* from a research firm for — get this — retweeting an academic study suggesting nonviolent protests may be more politically effective than violent ones!

Now, this madness is coming for journalism.


…the Philadelphia Inquirer’s editor, Stan Wischowski, was forced out after approving a headline, “Buildings matter, too.”

In the most discussed incident, Times editorial page editor James Bennet was ousted for green-lighting an anti-protest editorial by Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton entitled, “Send in the troops.”

I’m no fan of Cotton, but as was the case with Michael Moore’s documentary and many other controversial speech episodes, it’s not clear that many of the people angriest about the piece in question even read it. In classic Times fashion, the paper has already scrubbed a mistake they made misreporting what their own editorial said…


Cotton did not call for “military force against protesters in American cities.” He spoke of a “show of force,” to rectify a situation a significant portion of the country saw as spiraling out of control. It’s an important distinction. Cotton was presenting one side of the most important question on the most important issue of a critically important day in American history.

As Cotton points out in the piece, he was advancing a view arguably held by a majority of the country. A Morning Consult poll showed 58% of Americans either strongly or somewhat supported the idea of “calling in the U.S. military to supplement city police forces.” That survey included 40% of self-described “liberals” and 37% of African-Americans. To declare a point of view held by that many people not only not worthy of discussion, but so toxic that publication of it without even necessarily agreeing requires dismissal, is a dramatic reversal for a newspaper that long cast itself as the national paper of record.

Incidentally, that same poll cited by Cotton showed that 73% of Americans described protecting property as “very important,” while an additional 16% considered it “somewhat important.” This means the Philadelphia Inquirer editor was fired for running a headline – “Buildings matter, too” – that the poll said expressed a view held by 89% of the population, including 64% of African-Americans.


After the 2016 election, we began to see staff uprisings. In one case, publishers at the Nation faced a revolt – from the Editor-in-Chief on down – after an articles by Aaron Mate and Patrick Lawrence questioning the evidentiary basis for Russiagate claims was run. Subsequent events, including the recent declassification of congressional testimony, revealed that Mate especially was right to point out that officials had no evidence for a Trump-Russia collusion case. It’s precisely because such unpopular views often turn out to be valid that we stress publishing and debating them in the press.

Oh, and there’s this part about the Left’s take on the George Floyd riots, which has become a massive exercise in doublethink:

Kathleen Kingsbury [The NYT’s newest opinion page editor], issued a staff directive essentially telling employees they now had a veto over anything that made them uncomfortable: “Anyone who sees any piece of Opinion journalism, headlines, social posts, photos—you name it—that gives you the slightest pause, please call or text me immediately.”

All these episodes sent a signal to everyone in a business already shedding jobs at an extraordinary rate that failure to toe certain editorial lines can and will result in the loss of your job. Perhaps additionally, you could face a public shaming campaign in which you will be denounced as a racist and rendered unemployable.

These tensions led to amazing contradictions in coverage. For all the extraordinary/inexplicable scenes of police viciousness in recent weeks — and there was a ton of it, ranging from police slashing tires in Minneapolis, to Buffalo officers knocking over an elderly man, to Philadelphia police attacking protesters — there were also 12 deaths in the first nine days of protests, only one at the hands of a police officer (involving a man who may or may not have been aiming a gun at police).

Looting in some communities has been so bad that people have been left without banks to cash checks, or pharmacies to fill prescriptions; business owners have been wiped out (“My life is gone,” commented one Philly store owner); a car dealership in San Leandro, California saw 74 cars stolen in a single night. It isn’t the whole story, but it’s demonstrably true that violence, arson, and rioting are occurring.

However, because it is politically untenable to discuss this in ways that do not suggest support, reporters have been twisting themselves into knots. We are seeing headlines previously imaginable only in The Onion, e.g., “27 police officers injured during largely peaceful anti-racism protests in London.”

And on that front, the public shaming aspect, he notes the torching of The Intercept’s Lee Fang for daring to tweet an interview he had with a black man who said, “I always question, why does a Black life matter only when a white man takes it?… Like, if a white man takes my life tonight, it’s going to be national news, but if a black man takes my life, it might not even be spoken of… It’s stuff just like that that I just want in the mix.”
