Susan B. Anthony vs Abortion

A pro-lifer captured this ATROCIOUS billboard on camera:

So social media corporations can censor the free speech of pro-life voices for defending millions of innocent unborn babies, but this pro-abortion billboard treating the termination of life like it’s a trip to the spa is perfectly fine?

This propaganda is LITERALLY deadly.

We’re calling on 1 MILLION AMERICANS to join us in denouncing this despicable billboard. Will you be the FIRST one to start the petition?

Remember when we said that the abortion lobby’s goal is to completely normalize abortion in our culture until the point that it’s as ordinary as getting a manicure or a haircut?

This billboard is all the proof you need.

We can see it in the phrases “women’s health,” “reproductive rights,” “choice,” and now even “self-care.”

Susan B. Anthony List exists as an organization to stand tall as a loud pro-life voice in America. We fight non-stop to protect the lives of the unborn, counter the pro-abortion propaganda in our culture, and mobilize pro-life Americans to end abortion in our country.

But with the abortion lobby getting nastier, we need to stand our ground now, more than ever.

Please add your name to our petition to DENOUNCE this HEINOUS billboard.

For LIFE,

Emily Buchanan
Executive Vice President
Susan B. Anthony List

 

Kavanaugh Hearing Attendees Saw Liberal Protesters Paid Off With THIS

I didn’t dare use the term “leftist bullies” in the subject line. Google would likely censor it. ~C.D.

Supreme Court pick Judge Brett Kavanaugh continues to face unprecedented protests and interruptions during his questions before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Turns out, we may know what’s motivating at least some of Kavanaugh’s liberal detractors. (Gateway Pundit)
Now, this…

Several doctors from Texas attended the hearing today and told interviewer Adam Schindler that they witnessed organized activists with a literal bag of cash paying the rent-a-mob protesters.

RealClearPolitics has a complete transcript of the doctor’s claims to author Adam W. Schindler.

Kavanaugh Hearing Attendees Saw Liberal Protesters Paid Off With THIS

Rent-a-Mob [SEE THE PHOTO]

Discipline needed for Leftist Intimidation (bul lies)

KOMMONSENTSJANE – MANAGING THE SENATE JUDICIAL HEARINGS OR ANY GOVERNMENT HEARING.

If officials/citizens act like children – they need to be treated (heavily fined) accordingly and removed.

A new norm needs to be established because of the interference from the left in our government.

Something as important as the hearing for Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court should not end up as a travesty. Each person who attends these hearings should sign a “waver of conduct.”

This should also apply to the Senators who disrupted the hearings and the citizens. Being arrested and then being dismissed at the end of the day is not good enough. There has to be consequences for their actions (at least a fine). Also, the senators who misbehave should be heavily fined for not following the established decorum.

Biblical Values vs. Cultural Marxism Bias, Indoctrination in Schools; How to Protect Family

Common Core

Achievement Gap in Education

Biblical Values vs. Cultural Marxism Bias, Indoctrination in Schools; How to Protect Family

Protect Family values— Defeat Cultural Marxism. We on the Right need to “cultivate a new mindset. We have  to break up this monopoly of information.  We have to open up new space for rival and dissenting viewpoints. We have to create rival cultural institutions. ~Dinesh D’Souza

Common Core Indoctrination in Schools Increases Achievement Gap in Education

Dr. Carolyn Reeves

Amazingly, the research also revealed that a student’s religious faith (specifically Christianity) has the greatest impact on reducing achievement gaps. An intact family structure is the second most important factor in effectively narrowing the racial and socioeconomic gaps.

“Perhaps most interestingly,” Jeynes said, “when the two factors were combined (if low socioeconomic status children of color were religious and came from intact families), the achievement gap totally disappeared.”6

Is the achievement gap closing?
Achievement gaps between groups of students have been a major challenge in education for decades. Common Core made narrowing those gaps an ambitious goal and predicted that by 2017, the gaps would be greatly narrowed.

It didn’t happen.

Common Core Bias Documented:

Focus on education
“Common Core is clearly hostile to Christianity, to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution, to traditional ideas of manhood and womanhood, to marriage and the family, to the idea of America’s unique example in the world, to any lesson about life and liberty that could be taught to us by a ‘dead white man.’”

Dr. Terrence O. Moore, former history professor, Hillsdale College
The Story-Killers: A Common-Sense Case Against Common Core

Is bias real?
Columnist Robert Knight wrote that there is an increasing animosity toward America and free market capitalism among many younger Americans. He references author William J. Federer, who says this is no accident.

Rather it is the result of conditioning in both elementary and secondary schools that continues into universities – tactics such as being hypercritical of America’s history and failing to appreciate the genius of our Constitution.

“Deconstructing Young Minds,”
Washington Times, 6/10/18

Is change possible?

If parents would like to see Common Core repealed or altered in their state, they should contact their state legislators and ask for open hearings or surveys on the standards, with input from local and state educators, parents, and students.

Signs of problems
Almost immediately, there were signs of problems from unhappy parents, students, and teachers. Angela Hill, a parent, former teacher, and Mississippi state senator, has been an opponent of the program from the beginning. She reported in debates about Common Core in the state legislature that she had “heard from numerous parents, teachers, and students complaining about the English language arts and math standards, as well as the recommended teaching methods.”

In 2016, as Donald Trump campaigned in the presidential elections, his promise to help get rid of Common Core was greeted with enthusiastic cheers and applause.

TIMSS math, science trends
The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study is given every four years to sample groups of fourth- and eighth-grade students. Results of the fourth-grade math scores from 2003 to 2011 showed a gradual increase for all student groups. From 2011 to 2015, the top quartile continued to increase, but the average and the lower percentiles decreased. Overall, U.S. fourth graders dropped from 11th in the world in 2011 to 14th in 2015. 5

Faith, family factors
Interestingly, faith and family come into the big picture in a big way. That is no surprise to those who hold to the traditions of the Founding Fathers.

Dr. William Jeynes, His study stunned many educators

Amazingly, the research also revealed that a student’s religious faith (specifically Christianity) has the greatest impact on reducing achievement gaps. An intact family structure is the second most important factor in effectively narrowing the racial and socioeconomic gaps.

“Perhaps most interestingly,” Jeynes said, “when the two factors were combined (if low socioeconomic status children of color were religious and came from intact families), the achievement gap totally disappeared.”6

With increasing approval of post-modern philosophies, some schools no longer support traditional family structure, and others try to eliminate all references to Christianity in such things as Christmas music selections, classroom writing assignments, and graduation speeches – falsely claiming there must be “separation of church and state” in schools. These self-defeating policies arguably make the achievement gap problem worse, not better.

Leaders’ perspective
The 2016 ACT National Curriculum Survey is given to thousands of K-12 teachers and college instructors to determine which skills and knowledge in English/writing, mathematics, reading, and science are being taught and which are considered essential for students to be ready for college and career. One result was that in general, college professors found that recent incoming students were able to analyze and summarize the opinions of others, but were often not able to generate and write original, sound ideas of their own. 7

Epic Stories of Western Civilization taken away

Dr. Terrence O. Moore, former professor of history at Hillsdale College and national leader in the classical school movement, states, “[T]he standards take away the ‘great stories’ of our heritage of Western civilization and Christianity, and replace them with post-modern cynicism and political correctness.”

Moore is concerned about what are on the “exemplar texts” for the Common Core English standards, as well as the large number of traditional classics that are not on the list. He maintains that the classic articles and books are a huge influence on students in shaping morals and character.

He sadly notes that selections of the classics, when included in a lesson, are often no more than a few selected pages that are covered in one day; if they present a conservative viewpoint, they may be compared with a modern author who has a liberal viewpoint.

Common Core is clearly hostile to Biblical Values

Moore’s frank conclusion is, “Common Core is clearly hostile to Christianity, to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution, to traditional ideas of manhood and womanhood, to marriage and the family, to the idea of America’s unique example in the world, to any lesson about life and liberty that could be taught to us by a ‘dead white man’.”8

States revise, repeal
A number of states have repealed their Common Core agreement and are in the process of writing new state standards and finding new achievement tests. Some states seem to be happy with the Common Core standards as they are. Others have found ways to override the copyright that only allows a 15% change in the standards, and some have made numerous adjustments that are more in line with their state values.9

Although schools in conservative communities can, and do, reject many of the more liberal selections, Moore sees Common Core as a vehicle that can influence students to accept anti-Christian, anti-American beliefs.

Teaching in the Home is the Solution.

You don’t have to be a professional teacher. Just be a parent! Click here.  It’s easier than you think!

Restoring U.S. public schools to a foundation of moral principles and values of the Founding Fathers – if not already too late – will be a daunting task that demands the efforts of concerned parents, educators, and politicians alike.

Homeschooling Growth Rate Increases

Safety concerns motivate homeschooling

September 2018 – Homeschool associations such as the Texas Home School Coalition are seeing increased interest in homeschooling. Many parents are concerned about school safety due to school shootings and bullying.

“Most parents homeschool for more than one reason,” said Brian Ray of the National Home Education Research Institute. “But when we ask families why they homeschool, near the top nowadays is concern about the environment of schools, and that includes safety, pressure to get into drugs, and pressure to get into sexual activity.”

While states are not required to track homeschooling numbers, the U.S. Department of Education estimated 1.69 million homeschool students in the spring of 2016. Ray suggests the number is closer to 2.3 million.

“Homeschooling has been growing at an estimated 2% to 8% per year, and that’s compounded,” he said.

For example, there was a 25% increase in homeschooling between 2012 and 2016.

Victory for Life in Two States

September 2018 – The U.S.Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of California pregnancy resource centers affected by California’s FACT (Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care and Transparency) Act. Since FACT passed in 2015, any pro-life center that failed to inform its clients of the state’s free or low-cost abortions was subject to fines of $500-1000. On June 26, the court ruled in NIFLA v. Becerra that the California FACT Act was a violation of free speech.

Penny Nance, CEO and president of Concerned Women for America, said the case “centered on an inappropriate mandate of the state compelling pro-life clinics to promote abortion in violation of their consciences.”

On another front, Louisiana passed HB 449, The Adoption Option Act, authored by Rep. Rick Edmonds (R). It ensures Louisiana’s Department of Health website contains proactive information for birth parents about the benefits of adoption, and it guarantees that materials distributed to women in abortion facilities will also contain information on adoption.

“My bill is designed to reach couples facing the trauma and violence of abortion with empowering information on the simple first steps to consider the heroic option of adoption,” Edmonds said.

Passage of the legislation followed a red carpet premier at the Governor’s Mansion of the short film I Lived on Parker Avenue (See AFA Journal, March 2018.), that documents the journey of LSU law student David Scotton to meet his birth parents.

Trump DOJ Helping Protect Freedom of Worship

September 2018 – U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken steps to support the religious freedom of churches by launching the “Place to Worship Initiative,” an education program for federal agencies and attorneys. This initiative is to help them understand how to carry out the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, a federal law passed in 2000 mandating that the government refrain from placing unnecessary burdens on churches and prisoners in relation to their places and manner of worship.

“President Trump’s DOJ is doing a good job protecting religious freedom in this area,” said Travis Weber of Family Research Council. “And we really are advocating for it to be protected across the board.”

U.S. withdraws from UN council

Nikki Haley with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

September 2018 – “A cesspool of political bias.” That’s how Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, described the Human Rights Council just before she announced that the U.S. is withdrawing from the council.

One reason for withdrawal, Haley stated, is the council’s repeated acceptance and protection of countries with human rights problems, such as the Democratic Republic of Congo and Venezuela.

Haley added the council’s mistreatment of Israel as reason for the withdrawal, calling it a “chronic bias” against Israel.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated, “Since its creation, the council has adopted more resolutions condemning Israel than against the rest of the world combined.”

Video Games and Violence Affect Young Players

September 2018 – Do violent video games have an adverse effect on American teens? Does a graphic television show about suicide alter the mental state of its viewers?

Culture critic Robert Knight believes the answer to both is a resounding yes, labeling the current situation a “culture war on children.”

“The military uses violent videos to train people to kill,” Knight argues. “So it seems reasonable to assume that violence-laden video games may make some kids numb to real violence. …”

Knight referenced a game called “Active Shooter.” Players in this game can carry out school shootings from the comfort of their living rooms, with the game keeping tabs onscreen of how many people the player has killed.

Knight also cited the Netflix hit show 13 Reasons Why, a drama centered around the suicide of a teen named Hannah. Following season one, a 26% increase was seen in the Google searches for how to commit suicide. Season two aired in May with sex scenes, rapes, homosexuality, pornography, and gun violence.

Knight acknowledged one opposing statistic, which claims 80% of mass shooters reveal no interest in video games.

However, he raised this question: “If viewing has no effect on behavior, why do merchants invest billions of dollars on ads to influence people’s buying choices?”

Netflix airs ‘Salute to Abortion’

September 2018 – Netflix has recently come under fire as the network pursues its commitment to promoting the darkest aspects of human nature. For example, in early July, Netflix aired Michelle Wolf’s Salute to Abortion in which the alleged comedian declared, “God bless abortion!”

In another case, critics have accused Netflix of airing child porn in a recent foreign film.

AFA continues partnering with Parents Television Council and a broader coalition of groups to urge Netflix to end its sleazy suicide series 13 Reasons Why.

Join the efforts; sign a petition at afa.net/Netflix urging Netflix to pull both seasons one and two of 13 Reasons Why. (See related story here.)

 

Suicide: a leading cause of death in U.S.

September 2018 – Suicide has become the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., with an increase of nearly 30% over the past decade, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control. In 2016, nearly 45,000 suicides occurred in the U.S. – more than twice the number of homicides. And among ages 15-34, suicide is the second leading cause of death.

In 27 states, 54% of suicides were not linked to any diagnosed mental health problem. While the most common method of suicide involved firearms, suicides from opioid overdoses doubled between 1999 and 2014. In 2014, those with opioid addiction were 40-60% more likely to consider suicide. Other factors associated with suicide included strained relationships, financial stressors, and physical health conditions.

“Suicide is a public health crisis when you look at the numbers, and they keep going up,” said Nadine Kaslow, former president of the American Psychological Association. (See related story, here.)

Abuse of Power: Leftist Hysteria vs. Trump Agenda to Drain the Swamp

Abuse of Power:

Leftist Hysteria  vs. Trump Agenda to Drain the Swamp

President Trump tweeted something about “flipping ought to be illegal.” This has sent the Left into meltdown once again. President Trump is not even allowed to be human. They could never hold up under the kind of hatred and pressure that Trump deals with on a daily basis. Actually, lying under oath is illegal. What Mueller is doing, intimidating and terrorizing people and their families ought to be illegal.  If this were done to Obama sycophants, the media wouldn’t stand for it. ~C.D.

 

He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him. ~Proverbs 26:24

Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein. Proverbs 26:27

The Left is  Unfeeling

Rush Limbaugh

But this ignores something that is very important. Donald Trump’s a human being like all of us are. And he’s not superhuman. He’s not inhuman. He’s not immune from the kind of things that people who turn on him do. He’s not immune to feeling anger or sorrow or whatever emotion he has over it. My point is, here’s Trump flipping that [ought] to be illegal.

CNN is devoting a full segment to how that statement proves that Donald Trump is insane, not mentally balanced, dangerous, really underqualified, really has no business being in the White House, has no business being president of the United States, who says things like that? Who says flipping ought to be outlawed?

And of course the Never Trumpers on our side are having the same. They need the vapors. “Oh, my God. Look at the manners, so unsophisticated, and, oh, my God. Look at the lack of character.” But is Donald Trump that unqualified? Let’s take a look, folks.

For the kingdom of the devil must shake, and they which belong to it must needs be stirred up unto repentance, or the devil will grasp them with his everlasting chains, and they be stirred up to anger, and perish;

For behold, at that day shall he rage in the hearts of the children of men, and stir them up to anger against that which is good. 2 Nephi 28:19,20

There is a political party in this country, there is a mainstream media in this country, and there is an entire Washington establishment consisting of a whole lot of people who are cheering for the following.

  • They are cheering for a former secretary of state who mishandled virtually every electronic communication that passed through her office for four years.
  • They are cheering for Hillary Clinton to get away with the serial crimes that she committed throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.
  • They are cheering a former secretary of state, a former first lady to get away with countless illegalities, including a massive pay-for-play scheme revolving around her foundation.
  • They are cheering for a woman who was selling access, policy access to her administration before she was even elected.
  • They are cheering the kind of financial illegalities that Donald Trump cannot even approach having committed.
  • In addition, they are cheering a senator who lied about her heritage for career advancement.
  • This would be Fauxcahontas Warren.
  • They are openly cheering a senator who lied about her heritage for career advancement and who openly admits she doesn’t care that an American woman was murdered by an illegal immigrant. They are cheering that woman.
  • The Democrat Party, the Drive-By Media, the Washington establishment are cheering a rogue special counsel operating way beyond constitutional limits with a team of conflicted partisan hacks who are on a mission to overturn a duly constituted election! There is a political party, the mainstream media and the Washington establishment — which is really all the same — who are cheering the concept of a fourth super branch of government called the special counsel, who sits in daily judgment of the president of the United States.
  • They are cheering an arrangement which does not exist in the U.S. Constitution.
  • They are cheering former FBI and Department of Justice officials who serially abused power in an effort to choose the president of the United States. That would be Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, McCabe, Comey; you fill out the names.
  • They are cheering a teenage Camera Hogg that does a remarkably accurate portrayal of a vulgar fascist when he’s on television.
  • And they are cheering a stunningly ignorant self-proclaimed socialist Millennial said to represent the future of the Democrat Party.
  • They are against, depressed by:
  • These same people who are cheering all of that are depressed by, are threatened by, and wish it wasn’t happening,
  • a robust economy,
  • a strong military,
  • adherence to the rule of law,
  • the reestablishment of America preeminent in trade around the world,
  • an America establishing secure borders to prevent the wanton murder of innocent American citizens by illegal immigrant gang members.

The rising standard of living of millions of Americans, the newfound job and career opportunities for millions of Americans, the lowest historical unemployment rate among African-Americans, one of their big constituent groups, they’re not interested in how well they’re doing. They want to cover that up. They want to bide it.

The big picture is that the man who is responsible for an American rebirth, his administration responsible for a growing economy that all of these other experts said was not possible and that Trump should be really, really, really careful about promising a 3% growth rate, that’s misleading people, that’s setting ’em up for being disappointed, he shouldn’t do this, while we’re at 4.1% economic growth.

So, again, it’s like redefining smart. Who is it that’s really unqualified here? So Donald Trump sits up there and says, “I think we maybe need to have a law against flippers,” and that is added to the list of other things Trump says and does that convinces all these people that he’s got to be sent packing.

Now, I’m sorry. That’s not how the Constitution works. Trump was duly elected, he’s the president, he gets to nominate, Senate gets to advise, consent, confirm, and so forth. But the Democrats are writing a brand-new Constitution each and every day. And the parts they don’t want to adhere to, they’re forgetting, they’re erasing it, and they’re rewriting, such as installing Mueller as a permanent super branch, fourth branch that somehow is justified in daily oversight of Donald Trump. And they’re doing everything they can in their reporting to justify all this is necessary.

But what’s driving all of this is not complicated, and it isn’t minutia. What’s driving all of this is that the votes of 60 million people are seen to not count. They are seen now as irrelevant, and they are seen as forgettable. You and the 60 million others that voted for Trump, your votes don’t count because of the guy you voted for. And so they’re not gonna stop until they exhaust every opportunity at their disposal to get rid of Donald Trump.

Leftists are Violating the Law

For behold, they do study at this time that they may destroy the liberty of thy people. ~Alma 8:17

  • It is they who are violating the law.
  •  It is they who are abandoning and ignoring the Constitution.
  •  It is they who are looking at the all of the robust improvements, economic recovery, and sticking their noses in the air over it and saying it doesn’t matter.
  • They’re saying you don’t matter.
  • They’re saying that Mollie Tibbetts doesn’t matter. She’s just a girl in Iowa. She doesn’t matter. You don’t matter, I don’t, and nobody but them or they matter.

But it’s a full-fledged, daily onslaught from every one of these media outlets. And it’s never ending. It is made up of the most vile, made-up, irresponsible stuff, rooted in one thing: Donald Trump’s not qualified. Donald Trump had no business winning. They can’t explain how he won, so they’re trying to convince people he cheated. They don’t have any evidence for any of the allegations they’ve made. They never will find any evidence for it.

So it boils down to the fact they don’t want Trump in the White House, they don’t like that Trump won, and since that’s the case, they should have the right to get rid of him. And all of you should just stand aside and watch it happen, or support it. I think that’s what people need to be reminded of, rather than getting caught up in all of the little allegations made against Trump, such as his comments about thinking that we need to get rid of flippers

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.  What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, My Dear Friend, is about the end of any nation.  You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

Venezuela Socialism Failure

 

Sorry If You’re Offended, but Socialism Leads to Misery and Destitution

David Harsanyi

On the same day that Venezuela’s “democratically” elected socialist president, Nicolas Maduro, whose once-wealthy nation now has citizens foraging for food, announced he was lopping five zeros off the country’s currency to create a “stable financial and monetary system,” Meghan McCain of “The View” was the target of internet-wide condemnation for having stated some obvious truths about collectivism.

During the same week we learned that the democratic socialist president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, is accused of massacring hundreds of protesters whose economic futures have been decimated by his economic policies, Soledad O’Brien and writers at outlets ranging from GQ, to BuzzFeed, to the Daily Beast were telling McCain to cool her jets.

In truth, McCain was being far too calm. After all, socialism is the leading man-made cause of death and misery in human existence. Whether implemented by a mob or a single strongman, collectivism is a poverty generator, an attack on human dignity, and a destroyer of individual rights.

It’s true that not all socialism ends in the tyranny of Leninism or Stalinism or Maoism or Castroism or Ba’athism or Chavezism or the Khmer Rouge—only most of it does. And no, New York primary winner Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t intend to set up gulags in Alaska. Most so-called democratic socialists—the qualifier affixed to denote that they live in a democratic system and have no choice but to ask for votes—aren’t consciously or explicitly endorsing violence or tyranny.

But when they adopt the term “socialism” and the ideas associated with it, they deserve to be treated with the kind of contempt and derision that all those adopting authoritarian philosophies deserve.

Obama Foundation’s monumental rip-off

By Thomas Lifson

The Obama Presidential Center planned for Chicago is nothing more than a personal monument to Barack Obama and a center for political indoctrination in his radical views. It serves no public purpose the way that a presidential library would.  Obama’s presidential papers will not be housed there, and no scholars will be afforded the opportunity to explore the history of his presidency.

And, this is receiving vast public subsidies, despite assurances that it would be privately funded.  Barack and Michelle Obama have been playing a major role in its design, in a fashion reminiscent of a dictator putting up monuments to himself in some third world country. As the revised design stands, it will look like a cenotaph bizarrely erected before the death and burial of its principal.

In an article there, Mark Glennon challenges the vast subsidies that all American taxpayers will be affording this personal and political endeavor:

Illinois taxpayers will put up at least $174 million for roadway and transit reconfigurations needed to accommodate the Obama Center. If you don’t live in Illinois, you may be smirking—but you’ll be footing the bill, too. Eighty percent of such spending is generally reimbursed by the federal government, and Illinois officials confirmed to me that they expect to receive $139 million from Washington if they request it.

Which raises the question of why the state and city are giving the Obama Center official support. Back when it was still being sold as an official presidential library, the city of Chicago took steps to allow the project to be built in Jackson Park. Under a deal approved by the City Council in May, the Obama Foundation will lease 19.3 acres in perpetuity for $1.

One dollar for perpetual use of a huge amount of priceless lakefront land.

Fortunately, this is not going to happen without a legal challenge:

A nonprofit group called Protect our Parks has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that this violates state law. The suit calls the Obama Center a “bait and switch,” since the “public purpose” of a presidential library no longer exists.

Promises made, promises broken

The Obama Foundation responds that no public money will flow into its coffers (the tax deductibility of donations is another matter). But a hundred and seventy-four million taxpayer dollars spent on construction specifically designed for the facility is a subsidy, period.

In its centuries-long efforts to dismantle the load-bearing structures of traditional and classical liberal society, Marxist dogma in its various forms – communism, socialism, neo-Marxism, Cultural Marxism – has embarked on a sustained campaign to weaken and ultimately to abolish the institution of marriage as it has been commonly understood since time immemorial.  The dissolution or misprision of marriage, as a contract between a man and a woman committed to raising a family and recognizing its attendant responsibilities, is a prerequisite for the revolutionary socialist state in which the pivotal loyalty of the individual belongs to the sovereign collective, not to the family.

Advocacy and legislation that sunder the intimate love between a man and a woman, that deprive children of male and female parental role models, that compromise the integrity of the family and that dissolve the purpose of marriage as a guarantor of cultural longevity are indispensable strategies essential to realizing the left’s master plan.  Dismissing the nuclear family as an archaic and repressive arrangement whose time has passed, the state would then operate in loco parentis.

Memo: George Soros Fund of Social Media behind Internet Censorship

Memo reveals Soros-funded social-media censorship plan

Plotted with Google, Facebook to eliminate ‘right wing propaganda’

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Comically Incorrect  for his great cartoon

The recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Apple mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump’s administration.

A confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news” was presented in January 2017  by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time.

The Free Beacon obtained a copy of the memo, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” by attending the retreat.

The memo spells out a four-year agenda that deployed Media Matters along with American Bridge, Shareblue and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to attack Trump and Republicans.
