“Callous, Selfish, Afraid, and Stupid: The Story of Western Civilization in the 21st Century.”


The Blaze: Matt Walch on Planned parenthood and the culture.

The latest Planned Parenthood video is out. This time, it’s revealed that living babies with beating hearts are being sold and dissected.

One might think this is big news. One might think this is the biggest news going on right now. One might think the whole country should stop in its tracks and focus intently on this story. One might think that any decent human being would be overcome by a bitter, violent, passionate anger at these Planned Parenthood revelations. One might think we’d all be moved to do something. Do something, damn it. Do something.

But one is clearly not familiar with how this country works. Indeed, the first couple of Planned Parenthood videos garnered some interest, but the large collection of bored, emasculated narcissists in our culture have responded with an increasingly loud yawn with each successive installment.

If polls are to be believed, Planned Parenthood is actually still a pretty popular organization, and out of the people who saw the videos, less than half now have a more negative opinion of the child butchers.

Less than half.

Dear God, forgive us.

Of course, the media hasn’t helped matters. If you rely on mainstream “journalists” for your information, you probably didn’t hear a single word about the most recent footage, even though it contains blockbuster, earth-shattering news. You’ve likely been inundated with stories about Donald Trump and maybe Hillary Clinton, but not the continued wholesale slaughter and sale of infants.

... it’s interesting that Jared Fogle is being arrested for child porn at all. It’s legal to execute children and use their bodies for medical research, so why exactly is it illegal to use their bodies as sex objects? When it comes to vile, wretched, despicable creatures, child pornographers and Planned Parenthood employees are clearly in the same subspecies. What’s the moral reasoning behind funding one and locking the other in prison?

TIME: The Donald Has Landed



There are some things you just can’t do in politics, not at the presidential level, anyway.

This is a game like any other, with rules honed over decades by the pros in blue blazers clutching focus-group results: Be likable. Don’t make enemies. Respect the party elders. Avoid funny hats. And never wear white bucks or French cuffs to the Iowa State Fair, a flyover fantasy­land of cholesterol and common decency where the life-size butter cow grazes behind glass with the life-size butter Uncle Pennybags from Monopoly.

That’s why Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker wore jeans to pose atop the hay bales this year. Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina featured pink plaid—­Farmer Jane meets Disney princess—and Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton dug up a blouse of blue gingham, hoisting her pork chop on a stick like a blue ribbon for authenticity. They all played it well, adhering to the sacred promise that if they pretend to be like everyone else, voters might think they actually are.

Then a buzzing came across the sky. A $7 million Sikorsky helicopter, sent over six states in at least four hops by its billionaire owner, descended in tight circles on the crowd, the name of the Republican front runner for the 2016 presidential nomination emblazoned on the tail. Donald John Trump, at roughly 25% in the national GOP polls, about twice his nearest rival, emerged in Des Moines with his golden mane encased in a big ruby baseball cap, his cuffs flashing diamond links and his shoes shining brighter than bleached teeth.

The state trooper in charge of the event told the governor that in all his years working the fair, he had never seen a candidate mobbed like Trump. All the competition could do was stick to their scripts. When someone asked Clinton if she had noticed Trump circling overhead, she claimed ignorance. “I was just looking at the people,” she said. Trump, for his part, didn’t pretend to care much for the pork chop on a stick. One bite and he put the silly thing down. The rules have changed. He didn’t need it.

Ferguson 9-year-old girl shot dead doing homework on mom's bed

Jamyla Bolden, 9, was fatally shot as she sat on her mother's bed in in Ferguson, Mo., on Tuesday.
The home sits one block from West Florissant Ave., which has seen rioting and police confrontations with protesters in the year since 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by Officer Darren Wilson.

Something tells me that there will be no demonstrations about this shooting.

Explaining Donald Trump's enemies



I have read a great many essays by people trying to explain Trump and his supporters, mainly by people who view his supporters as a strange tribe in darkest flyover country.  Here's the first essay I have read on Trump's enemies.

Not sure I agree with all of it, but a lot of it rings true.

You can tell a lot about a man by his enemies, and Donald Trump has those aplenty. I'm not referring to people may merely disagree with him on certain issues, or even those on the far Left – like Democrats – who will hate anybody who is not a progressive loonie toon. Instead, I'm talking about the folks in Trump's own party and on Trump's own side, broadly speaking, of the ideological divide. The Republican establishment, as well as a large subset of the conservative (loosely defined) commentariat, seem to have visceral hatred for the man – and for his supporters in the GOP base. Lindsey Graham – in what might possibly be this year's most stunning example of a lack of self-awareness – worries that Trump is bringing the GOP into disrepute. The reliably establishmentarian pencil neck George Will has taken to devoting his apparently limited research time to coming up with wild new ways in which Trump might destroy America and the world. Every day, a new op-ed hits the broadsheets by some GOP consultant or strategist explaining how Trump's supporters are all a bunch of dumb rubes who are "fooled" by Trump, who is really a "Democrat plant," and they just don't realize that he's not a "real" conservative (which I think they already know, but just aren't that concerned about it).

The Republican Consultant Class is Cracking Up

MELTDOWN DAY 2: RICK WILSON ASKS ANN COULTER IF DONALD TRUMP ‘PAYS MORE FOR ANAL’

Breitbart News reached out to Coulter about the “anal” tweet. She replied that Wilson’s “only remaining move is to use the Anthony Weiner ‘MY TWITTER ACCOUNT HAS BEEN HACKED!’ defense.”

This is just the latest from Wilson, who is also a writer for Politico, Ricochet, and The Federalist.

Friday on CNN, Wilson attacked 25% of the Republican base as “low information voters.” Just two days later he publicly politicized the rape threat against his daughter. Twenty-four hours after that he’s publicly accusing Coulter of being a prostitute.

Science Plus Politics Equals Politics



“In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win,” wrote Ayn Rand. And, with considerably more charm, Mark Steyn wrote, “It’s a good basic axiom that if you take a quart of ice-cream and a quart of dog feces and mix ’em together the result will taste more like the latter than the former.”

Nowhere are these axioms more true than in the field of science. Science — that process of hypothesis, observation and experimentation by which humans understand the workings of material things — mixed with just about anything becomes more of that other thing than itself. ...

Likewise, if you mix science with meddling overbearing government, you get meddling overbearing government. Note these recent stories about nutrition. The scientists who help compose the federal nutritional guidelines that govern what goes into subsidized school lunches have finally admitted that eating cholesterol — as in eggs, say — doesn’t actually increase your cholesterol, and skipping breakfast, well known to make people fat, doesn’t make people fat. At the same time, the researcher who once found important evidence for the existence of gluten sensitivity recently proved pretty much beyond a doubt that gluten sensitivity (barring celiac disease) doesn’t actually exist.

Why the Republican Consensus on Trump is Wrong

There seems to be a consensus among Conservative commentators that Donald Trump is bad for the Republican Party because:


I’m not sure any of these points is correct. I also have a feeling, although I can’t prove it, that most of these commentators have a favorite and are frustrated that their champion isn’t winning.

Point one was true, I’m not sure it still is. Trump’s been both a Democrat and a Republican. Ann Coulter tells me he’s been a Republican since 1988 and she’s a pretty smart cookie. I’ll take her word for it. He’s as much a Republican as John Kasich or Jeb Bush and he’s to the right on many issues - like guns - of Chris Christie. Is he conservative? On many issues he is: immigration, abortion, national debt, capital punishment, taxes, American greatness, climate change, energy, ObamaCare.

 Where he’s not conservative is style, an issue that seems to overwhelm many people who make their living by writing. They prefer scholarly issue papers and detailed plans for fixing everything. But detailed issue papers don’t get you elected and, like battle plans, never survive contact with the enemy. That difference, and the tendency to call people names, seems to drive his critics up the wall.

One of the public thought leaders of the Conservative movement – Rush Limbaugh – has not risen up to denounce him. In fact he seems to admire Trump for his willingness to stand up to the feckless Washington Republican Establishment and the media with no apologies. This quality is so rare in Republican circle that it explains his lead in the polls in large part.

To the second point: Trump’s hogging the limelight. He’s is succeeding because of his hot-button issues and his style. Professional politicians have often been burnished, smoothed and sanded to the point that they are bland, interesting only to their partisans who take it for granted that everyone around them will be persuaded by their wisdom and their niceness. That’s how you lose elections. That’s how smooth talking political rock stars like Obama, adored by the media, with fainting groupies, who promise nothing more substantial than HopeN’Change capture the Presidency. Finally, if you want to tell Trump he’s not playing fair because he should give up some face-time so that his opponents can get theirs you apparently have never run for office … or anything else.

The issue of electability is one on which I think the conventional wisdom is wrong. I think that Trump projects blunt-spoken pragmatism with all the rough edges exposed. I don’t think that Right, Left or Middle is happy with the direction of the country. As evidence we have Bernie Sanders drawing huge crowds appealing to economic issues. Why? Because one of his main points is that the country is sprouting billionaires like mushrooms after a rain while at the same time the poor and middle class are suffering. Real unemployment/underemployment is over 10%. He’s blowing up the Obama/media lie that jobs are plentiful and unemployment is low. He’s telling Democrat voters something they know in their bones but don’t hear from their political leadership.

Meanwhile the 65% – 80% of the Right is flocking to Walker, Cruz, Fiorina and Carson while the ultimate Republican insider - Jeb Bush - can’t get out of single digits in the polls. In fact, the only reason that Bush is considered a “leader” is the size of his war chest, and indication that he’s got lots of wealthy people who owe a big debt to the Bush dynasty. Not that he’s got a lot of grass roots support.

I happen to think that Trump is a great communicator. Another great communicator, Rush Limbaugh agrees: 
“But when he's interviewed by somebody, is Trump not the essence of brevity? I mean, how long does it take Trump to make his point? One sentence? He doesn't have to rant and rave. He comes across as a madman simply to these people because he says things that, why, they're not spoken in public! You don't call people losers, and you don't describe... Even if it's true, you do not describe illegal immigrants the way he does.”

He’s even nuanced. His position on Planned Parenthood is appealing: funding if they provide women’s health services. Defund them if they perform abortions. That’s a position I could get behind even though Planned Parenthood was founded by a eugenicist whose goal was aborting black (and other “undesirable”) babies.

Being the ex-President's daughter pays off: Hugo Chavez's ambassador daughter is Venezuela's richest woman

FUNNY, YOU SEE THIS KIND OF COINCIDENCE A LOT IN SOCIALIST PARADISES

Maria Gabriela Chavez, 35, the late president's second-oldest daughter, holds assets in American and Andorran banks totaling almost $4.2 billion
After her father's death in 2013 and until her appointment to the United Nations as alternate ambassador, Chavez continued to live in the presidential mansion, forcing the current president Nicolas Maduro to remain at the vice presidential home

The daughter of Hugo Chavez, the former president who once declared 'being rich is bad,' may be the wealthiest woman in Venezuela, according to evidence reportedly in the hands of Venezuelan media outlets.

Maria Gabriela Chavez, 35, the late president's second-oldest daughter, holds assets in American and Andorran banks totaling almost $4.2billion, Diario las Americas reports.

The figure would make Gabriela Chavez wealthier than media mogul Gustavo Cisneros, whom Forbes named the wealthiest Venezuelan earlier this year with $3.6billion in assets.
It seems that one of the best roads to riches is to be a socialist denouncing the rich while taking huge bribes.

Oh, Hillary?

ILLEGAL ALIEN ARRESTED FOR ‘EXTREMELY VIOLENT’ TRIPLE HOMICIDE IN FLORIDA

It was an “extremely violent scene, even for us,” Sands said. “All homicide scenes are normally violent, but this scene was what we considered unimaginable.”

According to the lieutenant, there were indications the victims died due to sharp force trauma, though no murder weapon was identified. There was also evidence the victims attempted to defend themselves from their attacker.

“He is an illegal alien,” Lt. Sands stated, adding, “He is currently on bond and is in the process of being removed from the United States.”
But wait, the's more ...

Hyde was recently wanted in connection to a recent robbery of a cell phone store there before fleeing the country.

Hyde first came to the U.S. in January, illegally entering through Texas, according to investigators.

Since then, Hyde had been staying with his relatives, the Pitts, in Lehigh Acres.

According to Belize media outlets, Hyde was also arrested in November of last year for assaulting a police officer, a charge he later disputed.

Other reports show Hyde and two other men were suspects in a double murder case dating back to October 2013. He was only charged with a lesser crime of “handling stolen goods.”
Hyde’s uncle, Russell Hyde, is also reportedly a known criminal in Bolivia who is suspected of decapitating and dismembering two people in May.

Yes, Target, I Do Want My Daughter To Conform To Her Gender


Matt Walsh on gender roles.

You’ve likely heard by now that Target will be ending the segregated, Apartheid-like conditions in their stores, getting rid of gender labels on toys, games, and most other products. They’ll also ban the colors pink and blue, and tear down the barbed wire fence that separated the two areas, which apparently made it previously impossible for a girl to enter the boy’s section or vice versa. For the time being, there will still be girl and boy aisles in the clothing department, but they assure us they’re keeping the labels because of “fitting and sizing differences,” not because they would presume to insinuate that only girls should wear dresses.

You can’t blame Target. They’re simply progressing with the times. The only problem is that, in this progressive age, you don’t progress by moving forward from one place to a better one, but in a more clinical sense, like dementia.

Read the whole thing ... I like this part especially

I think this attitude was profoundly illustrated in one email I received yesterday:
Matt, you haven’t ranted about Target going gender neutral. I assume you’re against it but I’m wondering if you can explain why? Everyone is making a big deal about this. But why should gender norms be hoisted on our children? Do you really want your daughter to conform to her gender or do you want her to be herself?

The email above, and society in general, create the strangest false dichotomy. They suggest that you have to choose between being your gender or being yourself, as if your self exists separate from your gender. This is nonsense, obviously. Your gender is yourself and yourself is your gender. Asking if I want my son and daughter to conform to their genders or be themselves is like asking if I want them to be warm-blooded bipeds or human beings.

I’ll take option C: both.

BEN CARSON: PLANNED PARENTHOOD CLINICS PUT IN BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS TO ‘CONTROL THAT POPULATION’

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, a candidate for the 2016 Republican nomination, sounded off on Planned Parenthood, as the so-called women’s health organization has been under fire in recent weeks for a series of videos suggesting they were open to selling aborted fetal tissue for profit.

Carson referred to the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger and her position on eugenics, particularly as it pertained to blacks, which he said may not allow for him to be objective when it comes to Planned Parenthood.

“Well, maybe I’m not objective when it comes to Planned Parenthood. But you know, I know who Margaret Sanger is, and I know that she believed in eugenics, and that she was not particularly enamored with black people,” Carson said. “And one of the reasons that you find most of their clinics in black neighborhoods is so that you can find way to control that population. And I think people should go back and read about Margaret Sanger, who founded this place — a woman who Hillary Clinton by the say says she admires. Look and see what many people in Nazi Germany thought about her.”

Angry Taxpayers, Not Stupid People, Are Backing Donald Trump


A fine article in the Federalist about the Trump phenomenon. It all started with the Tea Party
Throughout the first term of Obama’s presidency, the Tea Party grew in strength. I was able to replace my tattered homemade bumper‐sticker with a glossy official one. But things soon changed. Anderson Cooper dubbed us Tea Baggers, and the Republican Establishment fixed its eye on us like Sauron from Mordor. Those of us in the Tea Party faced a two‐headed hydra in Washington—the Democrats and those from our own party who hated us because we embarrassed them and challenged their power.

....During the primary, the GOP had repeatedly beat up on the Tea Partiers, calling them irrational, angry, and most of all stupid. They were characterized as ignorant outsiders with pitchforks. Hobbits. Crazies. When newly elected Sen. Ted Cruz fought to defund Obamacare in 2013, Peter King called his supporters “a dark strain in the American psyche.”

When both Democrats and Republicans repudiated the Tea Party movement, the possibly of Trump became real.

The EPA spill in Colorado was not a bug but a feature.

The EPA's long range plan was to build a Superfund Site at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars.  They needed a spill to make that happen.  They got it.

Guess what's going to happen next?



Meanwhile Democrats and environmentalists are rushing to the EPA's defense and pointing the fingers everywhere else.

The EPA says they're sorry and it won't happen again ... so that's allright.

Bud Norman

All those companies that have been heavily fined and whose executives have gone to jail for lesser contaminations surely didn’t intend to despoil the environment, after all, and we can reasonably assume that they also felt awful about it. The EPA’s apologists will likely argue that it was acting for the greater good, rather than than greed that motivates those nasty old miners, but we would note that mining industry also serves an essential and arguably more important service than the EPA and that the EPA’s employees are at least as well compensated and as a typical Colorado miner. The consequences of of governmental incompetence can be just as devastating as those of corporate incompetence, although usually more so, and deserve even harsher condemnation.

When a corporation encounters one of those unfortunate things that can happen when you’re moving heavy machinery around toxic materials, there’s an EPA and a Justice Department and a Federal Bureau of Investigation and an environmental left around to make so those responsible are held to account, but if it’s the EPA and the federal government that’s spilling three million gallons of toxic waste into a river and turning it a sickly orange and the environmental left is rallying to its defense there’s no real incentive for them to avoid such screw-ups in the future.

Did we mention that the mine closed in 1923? And that when a private company pollutes the ground with toxic chemicals, heavy metals such as cadmium, copper, lead and arsenic the EPA and the environmentalist run around with their hair on fire? The EPA has assured us that even everything's fine now:
Only one of 108 fish died after being placed in cages in the Animas River, and wildlife officials have said there appears to be no danger to animals drinking from the river.

And the EPA doesn't have to worry about the government going after them; they ARE the government.

Unlike BP, which was fined $5.5 billion for the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster, the EPA will pay nothing in fines for unleashing the Animas River spill.

“Sovereign immunity. The government doesn’t fine itself,” said Thomas L. Sansonetti, former assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s division of environment and natural resources.

They are the Stalins of their own home.

Dalrymple

I suppose that people who feel little control over their own lives or destinies can obtain a slight sense of agency by interfering in the lives of others, in tiny ways. I have noticed that many of the men who are violently dictatorial at home often count for little once they pass their own threshold. They are the Stalins of their own home.

 

Where two pieties – feminism and multi-culturalism – come into conflict, the only way of preserving both is an indecent silence

Dalrymple:

I think the problem here is one of a desired self-image. Tolerance is the greatest moral virtue and broadmindedness the greatest intellectual one. Moreover, no decent person can be other than a feminist. People therefore want to be both multiculturalist and feminist. But multiculturalism and feminism obviously clash; therefore, you avoid the necessity to give up one or the other merely by disregarding the phenomena. How you feel about yourself is more important to you than the state of the world.

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small.

Theodore Dalrymple:

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

The question that no one will every ask Hillary


Much ink has been spilled and pixels destroyed following Megyn Kelly's question to Donald Trump about his reference to women.

Here is a similar question to Hillary.  I doubt if Megyn Kelly or any other reporter would dare ask it.


Mrs. Clinton, you and several people on your staff ruthlessly destroyed the credibility of the women who came forward and stated that they had been sexually assaulted by your husband while he was governor of Arkansas and later President. Women like Gennifer Flowers, Mandy Grunwald, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones. Not to mention Monica Lewinsky. They were called Bimbo Eruptions by Betsy Wright.

You and others in your husband’s administration smeared their reputation as trailer trash, liars and stalkers. Is that how the Clinton family cares about women’s rights and dignity? How do you handle the charge that you, your husband and the people around you have conducted a war on women?

The Latest Defense of That Awful, Awful Deal


Bud Norman:

Our favorite conspiracy theory is that everything that has happened throughout history has been the according to the nefarious design of a secret cabal of Jews and Masons, and that Jackie Mason is the diabolical mastermind of it all, but even this attempt at satire cannot compare to the Obama administration’s defense of its awful, awful nuclear deal with the Iranian government....

Secretary of State John Kerry has granted an interview to the ever-faithful interviewer Jeffrey Goldberg over at the once-venerable Atlantic Monthly, a few Hollywood types have weighed in with a video saying the only alternative to the administration’s Iran deal is melted Frisbees and dead children and global Armageddon, the president himself has addressed a friendly audience at American University and gotten laughs with his ridicule of the deal’s opponent, and one of our crazier Facebook friends has posted a video purporting to prove that a millennial Christianist worldview is the other element in the only opposition to this awful, awful deal. In every case, we noticed, there was an implication that the only alternative to this awful, awful deal is an even more awful war with Iran, that such a conflict should properly be put off until Iran acquires the nuclear weapons that can be easily acquired under this deal and acquire the inter-continental ballistic delivery systems that are explicitly allow, which will surely be after the present administration has passed, and that anyone who disagrees is probably one of those people who belong to a certain unnamed ethnic group that is currently a beleaguered minority in the Middle East, or one of those other demographically significant yet unfashionable religious categories that retain their belief in the wisdom of the earlier three-fourths of the Christian bible as well as the later fourth and stand steadfast on religious ground in support of Israel, where even the left-wing crazies understand how very, very awful this deal is.

There is No Pro-Life Case For Planned Parenthood

Good article.  Read the whole thing. For those who argue that Planned Parenthood performs so many other services ...

So let’s be clear about what’s really going on here. It is not the pro-life movement that’s forced Planned Parenthood to unite actual family planning and mass feticide under one institutional umbrella. It is not the Catholic Church or the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles or the Southern Baptist Convention or the Republican Party that have bundled pap smears and pregnancy tests and HPV vaccines with the kind of grisly business being conducted on those videos. This is Planned Parenthood’s choice; it is liberalism’s choice; it is the respectable center-left of Dana Milbank and Ruth Marcus and Will Saletan that’s telling pro-life and pro-choice Americans alike that contraceptive access and fetal dismemberment are just a package deal, that if you want to fund an institution that makes contraception widely available then you just have to live with those “it’s another boy!” fetal corpses in said institution’s freezer, that’s just the price of women’s health care and contraceptive access, and who are you to complain about paying it, since after all the abortion arm of Planned Parenthood is actually pretty profitable and doesn’t need your tax dollars?

This is a frankly terrible argument, rooted in a form of self-deception that would be recognized as such in any other context. Tell me anything but this, liberals: Tell me that you aren’t just pro-choice but pro-abortion, tell me that abortion is morally necessary and praiseworthy, tell me that it’s as morally neutral as snuffing out a rabbit, tell me that a fetus is just a clump of cells and that pro-lifers are all unhinged zealots. Those arguments, as much as I disagree with them, have a real consistency, a moral logic that actually makes sense and actually justifies the continued funding of Planned Parenthood.

But to concede that pro-lifers might be somewhat right to be troubled by abortion, to shudder along with us just a little bit at the crushing of the unborn human body, and then turn around and still demand the funding of an institution that actually does the quease-inducing killing on the grounds that what’s being funded will help stop that organization from having to crush quite so often, kill quite so prolifically – no, spare me. Spare me. Tell the allegedly “pro-life” institution you support to set down the forceps, put away the vacuum, and then we’ll talk about what kind of family planning programs deserve funding. But don’t bring your worldview’s bloody hands to me and demand my dollars to pay for soap enough to maybe wash a few flecks off.

Coming out of the closet; marrying bacon.


How is this going to hurt people who believe that only people should get married?

You've read about the woman who's marrying a dog?  It's quite the thing in Europe.

Well, why not marry the thing you love?

My wife has suspected it for quite some time. My family has accepted it. I hope you do too. In fact, I demand it, so don’t criticize me or be intolerant. That would be ‘ham’aphobic. This doesn’t hurt ‘non-bacon’ marriages in any way, and I’ve been reading all kinds of scientific journals that tell me it won’t hurt my children (bacon bits) either since they will be in a home of love.

My doctor has been telling me for a while that this lifelong affair I’ve had with pork will hurt me, but what does he know. If I do get hospitalized because of it, at least now the doctor and hospital can release medical records to my bacon buddy, and give me visitation rights since we are a legitimate family now.

The definition of Marriage has evolved like society, and I am so glad that now my sizzling union is protected by the Constitution, and promoted by my president. I may even flirt some with my new bride’s sister – turkey-bacon. I’m going to go hog wild.

I’ll proudly wear the LGBT label too. Loving Great Bacon Tremendously. It is a civil right and will lower the humiliation of others who have been ham-hiding. I’m also looking for a church that will accept bacon every day, and not just once in a while at the Saturday men’s breakfast. Studies and stats have shown that accepting me and my bacon will likely doom that church, but that’s alright. The church should comply with this and any other cultural shift.

That’s it. Just wanted you to know. I’ll be doing the ceremony downtown on Fountain Square. Probably during the Flying Pig. I feel so liberated now. Who knows, someday I may also re-identify myself as scrambled eggs to be a better match for bacon. But that would be ridiculous.

Life’s a scream on the slippery slope



The slippery slope is derided as by Leftists on the way to utopia. What could possibly go wrong?   How is homosexual marriage going to affect you - Mr. & Mrs. Heterosexual Christian was the most common question they asked.  We're finding out.   If you're a baker, a pizza shop owner, photographer or a florist it could put you out of business.  If you're a priest or minister you could be sued.

Who predicted the when the "Supremes" rules that abortion was every woman's right we would be talking about the commercial trade in baby body parts?

You don’t have to stand with the right-to-life folks to be outraged by the callousness and coldness of Planned Parenthood executives defending their abortion business and its subsidiary, the selling of baby parts — tiny hearts, livers, lungs and the occasional brain — acquired from the abortions performed in Planned Parenthood clinics.

The slippery slope extends from the U.S. Supreme Court, where it decided in 1973 in its famous Roe v. Wade decision that women have a constitutional right to abortion, through the partial-birth decisions later in the previous century, the death clinics of the infamous Dr. Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia, and now to the Planned Parenthood market in baby parts.

In Defense of White Dudes

Let me crank up the wattage on that spotlight: The peoples of the world want to live where White Christian Dudes (WCD) hold sway. Here in our own increasingly frazzled USA, the anti-WCD, PC elite want us to forget that White Christian Dudes founded our country. Look at the Declaration of Independence; you won't see too, too many Mohammeds or Moishes among the signatories--...The Founding Fathers, all of them British and the epitome of White Christian Dudes, drew their moral and philosophical outlook, their concern for human rights and limited government, not from Asian or African philosophers, but from British, French, and Greek philosophers--all White Dudes, most of them Christian. Were our Founding Dudes perfect? Nope. Did they tolerate slavery, albeit reluctantly, when they should not have? Yes. White Christian Dudes can act out of step with their own principles. They are human. Yes, some White Christian Dudes from Europe ended up collaborating with African and Muslim Dudes to traffic in slaves. White Christian Dudes, however, do their own policing. It was overwhelmingly White Christian Dudes, we should note, who laid down their lives to end slavery. In more recent times, it was overwhelmingly White Christian Dudes who tore down European Nazism, liberated the concentration camps, and, by the way, also defeated racist Japanese Shinto militarism, freeing millions of Chinese, Filipinos, Malays, Koreans, and others from a brutal existence. It also was largely White Dudes, most of them Christian and Republican, who dismantled the Democrats' Jim Crow regime in the American South. White Christian Dudes gave America a new commitment to freedom and equal justice.

Around the world we see that just about everybody wants to live with the White Christian Dudes. We see this drive to live with White Christian Dudes every day along our southern border; Australians see it on their coasts and in the changing make up of their cities; Britons in the unceasing wave of migrants besieging their island. Canada's beautiful Vancouver in even more beautiful British Columbia has become a largely Asian city. Everywhere, it seems, the civilization built by White Christian Dudes is the magnet.

Obama Appointee And Bundler Blocks More Video Releases By Group Behind Planned Parenthood Sting


Freedom of speech and the press was a good idea once upon a time.

Too bad it's no longer operative in Age of Obama.

A federal judge late Friday granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers. The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has unveiled Planned Parenthood’s participation in the sale of organs harvested from aborted children.

Judge William H. Orrick, III, granted the injunction just hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.

Orrick was nominated to his position by hardline abortion supporter President Barack Obama. He was also a major donor to and bundler for President Obama’s presidential campaign. He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen.

"Dreamer" Murders two in Montana


More victims of Obama's immigration policy.

If Obama had a Mexican son he would look like Jesus Deniz Mendoza


Mendoza murdered a man and wife who tried to help him as he parked on the side of the road.  He shot their daughter but she rand away and survived.

Mendoza later told FBI agents he “shot the victims because he was getting tired of waiting around, and because the daughter laughed at him,” the criminal complaint says.
From the Washington Times
The Obama administration deems him a legal permanent resident who entered the country legally on May 31, 2013 — though they didn’t say how he earned that status initially.

Crime amongst Mexican immigrants has become a major issue in recent weeks after Mr. Trump, in announcing his presidential campaign, said Mexico sends “criminals, drug dealers, rapists” to the U.S.

His comments have been challenged by Hispanic-rights activists who said they were offensive and incorrect, pointing to statistics that immigrants generally have lower crime rates than native-born Americans.

But a spate of recent high-profile murders with illegal immigrants as the chief suspects has sharpened the debate, and put a focus on American immigration policy — partly because the suspects have often had previous run-ins with immigration authorities.

Indeed, just a month ago Mr. Deniz was arrested by police in Worland, Wyo., on burglary charges. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers were informed, but they couldn’t do anything because he was a permanent resident, and his crime didn’t rise the level of being kicked out of the country.

If convicted in the new case, however, he could be deported, ICE said.

“This individual does not have any criminal convictions, and, as a permanent resident, is not currently removable. Thus, an ICE detainer cannot be placed on the individual at this time,” the agency said in a statement. “However, ICE is closely monitoring this case and coordinating with local authorities. If he is convicted for a criminal offense that allows him to be removed from the country, after the completion of sentence, ICE intends to take him into custody and pursue his removal from the United States.”

Worland police declined to comment on the earlier burglary case, saying it’s an active investigation.
