Moral Support: Stand for Life; Support Unborn Child Protection Act

Moral Support:

Stand for Life; Support Unborn Child Protection Act

Dear Stand4Life Supporter,

I’m asking you to follow President Trump’s lead.

The White House issued a statement in support of a House bill that would make it illegal for any person to perform, or attempt to perform, an abortion of an unborn child after 5 months.

Now that the House did its job and passed this bill, it’s time for the Senate to ACT.

Please add your name in support of the White House statement and pressure pro-abortion obstructionists in the Senate to pass the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”

I can’t even imagine how anyone could think it’s okay to abort an unborn child after 5 months of pregnancy. This bill should be common sense.

But as we’ve seen time and time again, some elected officials routinely choose to stand with the abortion lobby, rather than their constituents – everyday Americans who are horrified by the thought of late-term abortion after five months.

Results only happen if we demand them.

So please, add your name in support of the White House statement and pressure pro-abortion obstructionists in the Senate to pass the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”

For LIFE,

Marjorie Dannenfelser
President, Susan B. Anthony List

How to Successfully Stop Illegal Immigration: Follow Israel’s Model

Aaron Klein

EILAT, Israel – Israel is regarded as a global leader in the fight against Islamic terrorism. Less well known is that the Jewish state has over the years contended with a major issue of regional migrants entering the country illegally and has successfully halted this infiltration to the point where not a single illegal entered in 2017, according to Israeli government statistics.

“Every country has an obligation to protect its borders,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared last week while announcing new steps to deport illegal migrants currently residing in Israel. “Protecting the borders from illegal infiltration is both the right and the fundamental obligation of a sovereign country.”

Here are Israel’s five primary methods of fighting illegal immigration.

1 – Build a barrier.

While most people are familiar with Israel’s West Bank security barrier, constructed to thwart terrorist infiltration, less well known is that Israel in 2013 completed a barrier that runs the length of the vast Israel-Egypt border to stem the flow of illegal African migrants entering the country. Upon completion of the barrier, the numbers of illegals crossing into the Jewish state slowed to a trickle and entirely stopped this past year.

2 – Forcibly deport illegal immigrants.

The infiltration of illegal aliens brought with it rises in crime rates and impacted the security of Israeli cities, especially south Tel Aviv, where many residents complain of no longer feeling safe. According to UN statistics from 2013, some 77% of the Africans that infiltrated Israel are males between the ages of 18 and 35.  Very few of the infiltrators are refugees fleeing persecution. Most are economic migrants looking for work. The illegal migrants were also opposed by Palestinians since they provided cheap labor and competed with Palestinians for some jobs.

3 – Provide incentives for illegals to leave on their own.

Israel has given notice to all illegals that they have 90 days to vacate. If the illegal migrants go willingly during that time period, they will be provided $3,500 and can depart to their home countries or to third countries. After the 90 day grace period, Israel has warned that illegals will be imprisoned or deported.

4 – Cut off all government funds.

Israel’s Knesset last month also advanced a bill to close the country’s Holot detention facility, where the Israeli government currently pays for food and housing for illegal infiltrators.

5 – Crack down on employers who hire illegals.

Besides current law violations, the Knesset has also advanced legislation to further sanction employers who hire illegal migrants.

Moral Support for Nativity Scenes

Anonymous donor behind campaign to install Nativity scenes nationwide

‘It is critical that Christians proclaim the Gospel message to their fellow citizens’

Bob Unruh

An anonymous donor has joined with the activist group American Nativity Scene and the Thomas More Society in a campaign to provide free Nativity scenes to display at or near statehouses across the nation.

The organizers say now is the time to prepare for the displays because of the process required to obtain permission.

“Indeed, these are for Christmastime display, but October is the time of year to start finalizing plans for a privately funded Christmas display as is legally allowed in traditional public forums such as state capitols, county complexes or city hall lawns,” explained Ed O’Malley, president of American Nativity Scene.

“We are giving away free Nativity scenes. It’s not really a Halloween treat, but it’s definitely not a trick. We are seriously committed to our goal of keeping Christ in Christmas.”

Tom Brejcha, the Thomas More Society president, said atheist groups “may mock our message, but we will not be silent as it is critical that Christians proclaim the Gospel message to their fellow citizens.”

Truth about Net Neutrality and Freedom of Speech

Truth about Net Neutrality and Freedom of Speech

If net neutrality had been the law of the land in 2007, the iPhone could never have come to market. But because there was no net neutrality, Jobs had the option to create the best operating atmosphere and circumstances for his product — and look what happened, with zero regulation additional. ~Rush Limbaugh

Net neutrality is another liberal idea that stifles Freedom of Speech

There have been some compromises made in the “political spectrum,” and they have turned out badly. We’ve seen the Equal Time Rule and the Fairness Doctrine, for instance, create chilling effects, freducing freedom of speech.  They were supposed to produce more, and more balanced, political discussion. What we got instead was a tax on controversial speech. ~Thomas W. Hazlett, The Political Spectrum: The Tumultuous Liberation of Wireless Technology

The government does not mean cheaper. The government has never meant cheaper. The government doesn’t mean equal. The government doesn’t mean fair. It never has. What the government means, in this context, is reduced services and less competence. It is competition that makes prices lower. It’s competition that enables innovation, better services. And this is a classic example of liberals succeeding in making people believe that corporations and industry are the enemy of people, that they are out to harm people, that they’re out to financially screw people. In the case of the pharmaceutical business, they’re out to kill their customers.

“Bureaucrats are not visionaries. They reflexively deter new ideas, protecting the existing industries.” ~Thomas W. Hazlett

And the government is the great fixer, government is the tamer of these wild financial beasts who want to deprive you of your Netflix and your Hulu and whatever else you watch. It’s classic how they have succeeded in making people believe that only the government can fix problems and make things fair. When you look at anything the government has its hands in, it isn’t efficient, it isn’t cheap, and it doesn’t work!

“You want unlimited data for a cheap price? Fine. You’re not gonna get HD quality.” When that was learned, all hell broke loose and T-Mobile had to modify their plan. But speed is like anything else; it’s like anything else you buy. You pay more for the best! There’s nothing new about it. There’s no fairness about it nor equality. That’s not even a factor. They love the UPS example. They love the FedEx example and Amazon. They love pointing out that Amazon ships its packages through FedEx and they’re all treated the same.

But they’re not! They’re not… In the first place, FedEx isn’t even regulated. Number two, you can buy any kind of speed delivery you want. The faster you want it delivered, the more you’re gonna pay for it. There is no equality and sameness in terms of FedEx or UPS delivery. You pay for faster delivery. Or, if you don’t want to pay for faster delivery, you don’t pay as much, and you don’t get it as soon. Imagine if somebody proposed delivery neutrality and claimed that all packages would be delivered at the same speed.

What incentive would any company have to get your package to you quickly if there’s something called delivery neutrality, where you can’t buy faster delivery speed and you just have to deal with whatever they want to do? If there’s no competition and if there is literally no pressure on the providers to get that package to you for any reason, you may never know when it’s gonna show up! And this is what they’re proposing for internet service? I don’t know. I just… I think this is not that complicated to understand. It’s that people aren’t taking the time.

Prices are rising now.

Prices have been rising since prices were established.

Net Neutrality stifles Competition and Free Market

“It turns out that the more competitive we get, the better off we are.” ~Thomas W. Hazlett

The idea that net neutrality’s gonna stop price increases is folly. Net neutrality is not gonna mandate that Netflix can’t raise prices or throttle delivery speeds. You know, even now with Netflix you have to pay more for 4K. If you want to stream in 4K, you’ve gotta pay more per month than what you would regularly pay for standard HD picture quality. How did that happen if net neutrality is designed to stop them from doing things like that? We’re living under net neutrality now. How come Netflix charges more for 4K? I thought everything was gonna be equal.

RUSH: Look, folks, it really isn’t that complicated. Net neutrality is a liberal idea just like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a liberal idea, just like Planned Parenthood’s a liberal idea, just like Obamacare’s a liberal idea. What’s good in it? What’s good about it? Why not be suspicious of it? Why not let the market work? Let the market work. Why have the government — the people that don’t know anything about any of this — start regulating it? ‘Cause you know what’s gonna happen: Whoever gives politicians the most money is gonna determine how the internet operates and where the power is there, not the market.

You know something else? If net neutrality had been the law of the land in 2007, the iPhone could never have come to market. Do you know why? Many of you iPhone owners may have forgotten, but the iPhone for the first two or three years was an AT&T exclusive. You know why? Steve Jobs had demands. He was not gonna let the carrier name be on the front or back of the device. He was not gonna let the carrier put any of their own stupid, gum-up-the-works apps on the phone.

Apple was gonna control the whole process: the manufacturing, the marketing, the customer service. AT&T is the only telecom that would do it, that would give up total control. Now, if net neutrality had been the law of the land, that would not have been permitted. Apple would not have been permitted to only offer the phone to AT&T customers. That would have been discriminatory. That would have been unfair to Verizon subscribers and Sprint subscribers. But because there was no net neutrality, Jobs had the option to create the best operating atmosphere and circumstances for his product — and look what happened, with zero regulation additional.

Trump Restores the America Tocqueville Saw

Rush Limbaugh

Jean Yarbrough [article on Trump and Tocqueville] is saying that what really is happening here since Trump was inaugurated — it began during the campaign — is that Americans are once again demonstrating the capacity to govern themselves both directly and through elected representatives. In other words, Americans are now turning away from government as nanny, government as Santa Claus. Now, not everybody, obviously. There are still a lot of people that hate Trump.

But we’re talking about a trend here, and what Ms. Yarbrough is actually getting at is an explanation of why Trump is succeeding and why nobody can separate his supporters from him, and what that means in terms of what’s happening in America. It’s ultimately all good that Americans, a number of Americans (enough to win a presidential election) are turning away from the idea that every problem in life must be and can only be solved by government, that people are grabbing hold of their own lives again.

They are utilizing self-determination, which is causing a rising instance of confidence in a burgeoning number of Americans, a rising amount of satisfaction with their lives because there is much more control over those lives being exercised by people who are living them, as opposed to anointed administrative state people in bureaucracies in a far-away and distant capital. This is what she thinks is happening.

America Founded on Christianity

She writes, “Tocqueville had been struck by Americans’ love of country.” He hadn’t seen that anywhere else in the world: Love of country. As such, Tocqueville “would not be surprised by the appeal of Trump’s full-throated patriotism, especially when set against his critics’ championing of multiculturalism and globalization. For Tocqueville, national identity was bound up with religion, which, in the United States and in Europe, meant Christianity.”

Tocqueville said that that was the foundational base of the greatness of America — and don’t forget the First Amendment. People talk about freedom of speech and so forth. The freedom of religion clause is why our founders fled Europe. They were denied the ability to worship as they pleased. It’s why the Pilgrims came and began it all. And when America, as constituted began to grow with that as the foundation, there was no stopping its greatness.

Christianity an Obstacle to Democrat Goals

Because of the virtue and the morality that were contained inside of everyone’s religious beliefs. And this is what Tocqueville was literally blown away by. He had not seen it anywhere in the world. “Long before the 2016 presidential election, though, Democrats had clearly come to regard Christianity as an obstacle to their goals.” Now, why do you think that is? ‘Cause I think she’s right.

Why would Democrats think Christianity is an obstacle to their goals? Because it all relies on who is God. They want government to be God. That’s not an exaggeration. That’s not to be flippant. They will never say it. You have to ascertain this by looking at the way they live and what they consider to be inviolate. You cannot violate the tenets of climate change, for example. You cannot violate the tenets of much of their beliefs. Their beliefs are their religion. But Christians of course look to the God of creation, the God of the Bible.

So there’s a competing God, and the Democrats and leftists everywhere, not just in America, leftists everywhere, communists especially need to wipe out God, the God of the Bible, because there can only be one God, and that will be the state. The old Soviets had all kinds of games they played with young kids to prove there was no God. And one of the simplest things they would do in a class of a bunch of sixth graders or the equivalent, first graders, too, bring in two potted plants.

One of them they would ignore for a period of a week or so. The other they would water and nurture and care for, and they said the one they were ignoring they were leaving it up to God to protect and grow. And of course that flower, that plant died. It withered away. But the other potted plant grew and flowered and bloomed, and so the little kids were shown that there was no God. And if there was a God, look at how he didn’t care about that poor plant. If he didn’t care about that plant, he probably doesn’t care about me. But my state cares about that plant.

It was this kind of subtle and if that didn’t take, it wasn’t so subtle, psychological games that were played. And it’s always been one of the fundamental differences between — well, not always. The Democrat Party’s abrogation of God of the Bible is, in terms of our founding, somewhat recent. Meaning in the last 50 to 75 years.

“Trump’s campaign promise,” she writes here, “to ‘drain the swamp’ — by which he meant scaling back the administrative state that had risen up alongside America’s three constitutional branches of government — can be understood as an application of great-party principles. It represented an attempt to limit the power of government’s unaccountable, irremovable, and self-interested bureaucrats.”

Woman asks Mike Rowe for ‘comforting word’ after Vegas shooting — he delivers with amazing response

A Las Vegas resident asked actor and TV host Mike Rowe for a “comforting word” after the mass shooting there that took the lives of 59 people and injured more than 500 others. And as always, Rowe delivered.

What did the resident ask?

Mike Rowe with Mama Ginger

Molly Carr wrote to Rowe: ” I live in Las Vegas, and I’ve seen you here often. Once, in the lobby at Mandalay Bay. We’re all shattered here, obviously. A comforting word from you would go a long way…”

What did Rowe say?

Hi Molly
I’m not surprised you saw me at the Mandalay. I cleaned their shark tank back in 2006, and I’ve stayed there at least thirty times since. Maybe that’s why my initial thoughts about this latest tragedy were so random and strange. Even before I imagined myself in the thick of the chaos, (as I always do,) and even before I thanked God that I wasn’t, (as I don’t do enough,) I found myself wondering if I had used the same elevator as the killer.

Isn’t that odd?

As people were being murdered in the most cowardly way imaginable, by a creature I can barely think of as human, I lay in my bed at home, stunned and horrified – wondering if I had stood in the same box and pushed the same buttons as the man now destroying countless lives and families. Since I’ve ridden all the elevators at Mandalay, I determined that the answer was yes.

I then wondered if the killer and I had shared the same barstool in the lobby? Had we swam in the same pool, or chatted up the same bellman, or played a hand of blackjack at the same table? Had we slept in the same bed?

It’s not a stretch. I’ve stayed on the 32nd floor of Mandalay before. I remember looking down at the sprawling, empty space 300 feet below my window – the same sprawling space that was recently filled with thousands of people having a good time, right up until they weren’t, courtesy of a monster.

Yesterday, I was struck by how unknowingly we rub elbows with evil. How we share the highways and bi-ways with hollowed-out men and craven women whose capacity for wickedness knows no bounds. It would be convenient if such people all looked the same, but alas, they don’t. They look just like us. And so we dine with them in restaurants, unknowingly. We walk by them in shopping malls, sit next to them in theaters, and maybe even hold the door for them as they smile and nod in thanks.

I’m sorry, Molly. I know these are not comforting words. The world is as uncertain as the people in it, and we share this rock with some very uncertain folks. But we also share it with living proof that hope will never die.

  • Take comfort in men who threw themselves over other people’s children. They are no less real than the killer, and they are still with us.
  • Take comfort in the woman who loaded wounded strangers into her car and drove them out of harm’s way.
  • Take comfort in the hundreds of first responders who risk their lives every day, and the hundreds of anonymous citizens who stood in line to give their blood.
  • Take comfort in the fact all good people are shattered, and that you are not alone.
  • There are no words, Molly, at least in my vocabulary, to bring you the comfort you seek. But there are people among us

    Mama Ginger and her Soup Ladies

    who restore my faith in the species, even as others seek to rob me of it. I can introduce you to those people. That’s what I’ve tried to do with my little slice of cyber space, and that’s what I can do today. The same thing I do every Tuesday.

  • This is Momma Ginger. Momma and her fellow Soup Ladies spend their lives waiting for disaster and tragedy to strike. When the unthinkable happens, they drive to the scene with a trailer filled with homemade soup, and feed the first-responders.
  • It sounds like a small thing. It isn’t. When it comes to kindness, there are no small things. And when it comes to keeping hope alive, our first responders are the best example there is. This is the woman who takes care of them. In fact, she’s on her way to your city right now.
  • Take comfort in her.

Atheist group demands HS marching band stop its ‘religious’ show. But the school isn’t backing down.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation — a national atheist activist group — has demanded that an Alabama high school marching band stop its “religious” halftime performances at football games, AL.com reported.

What is the atheist group upset about?

. . .the band plays hymns such as “Will the Circle be Unbroken,” “I Saw the Light,” “Swing Low Sweet Chariot,” “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee” and “Amazing Grace,” AL.com reported.

How is the school reacting?

“We have submitted the FFRF’s complaint to the [school] Board’s attorney for review,” Leeds City Schools Superintendent John J. Moore told AL.com. “We do not have plans to stop the show.”

Truth about America

October 2017 – There is a difference between going looking for a fight and having a fight come to you. It was that way with the colonists who decided to break away from the king of England in the 1700s. Those soon-to-be Americans – the men and women who founded our country – decided they had had enough abuse from the king, and so they made their grievances public with the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, and the war for America began.

Our founders didn’t go looking for a fight with the British crown, but the provocation for a fight came to them. It is much the same way for those of us who believe in traditional Christian values in modern day America. For the past four decades, we haven’t been looking for a fight, but our beliefs and morals have been under assault. For example:

Honoring God and prayer were very much a part of public life, but then the secularists went against those practices through the courts and many of us felt the need to fight back by forming Christian legal organizations to challenge the atheists and secularists in the courtrooms.
Christian teaching regarding sexual behavior was the standard before Alfred Kinsey, Hugh Hefner, and the entertainment industry (Hollywood) began to attack it relentlessly. Television programming from the 1970s forward has proclaimed there are no rules with respect to sex. Christians saw this as having dire consequences for the long term health of our society and decided to fight back and were mocked for doing so.
The taking of innocent human life through abortion was illegal in most states until the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision overruled the states and made abortion the law of the land. Some Christians decided to fight back, and thus was born the pro-life movement.
For all of human history, the definition of marriage has been the union of one man and one woman. The vast majority of states, even liberal California, have reaffirmed this view of marriage in the last 20 years. But one federal judge overruled seven million Californians, and later the Supreme Court concurred, thus changing the legal definition of marriage to include men “marrying” men and women “marrying” women. Talk about a classic oxymoron! Some Christians decided to fight back, and what America will do with this issue remains to be seen.

There are many more examples of what the “culture war” is all about, but I’ve just laid out four of the more high profile issues of our time. These issues were why my dad, Rev. Don Wildmon, founded the American Family Association. He saw the need to give Christians (and others who support traditional values) an organized response to the attacks on the Christian value system. That was in 1977. But we have been backed into a corner and left with no recourse but to fight for our values.

There were other groups like AFA who have also engaged in the effort to preserve and restore these values. The culture war is really a spiritual war; therefore it is eternal. There will

by Carl Bloch

always be good and evil, right and wrong, moral and immoral. And just as these values matter in our personal lives, they also matter for the well-being of our country. If we as a nation continue to rebel against God and godly principles, He will either destroy us or He will allow us to implode. I can’t tell you exactly what that looks like, but judging by historical and biblical accounts, it will be really, really bad.

Challenge to Christian Soldiers

If you are a Christian soldier, let me encourage, warn, and challenge you. Let me encourage you that standing for the Lord and His righteousness is always the right thing to do. We must do what we can, while we can.

Elections matter. Building strong families matters. Being involved in your community matters. Winning converts to Christianity matters. Let me warn you that the world is against us – and sometimes hostile towards us – because we make moral judgments based on Scripture and proclaim them publicly. Jesus told us this would be the case.

Finally, let me challenge you to stay involved with groups like AFA. We will win some and we will lose some. But we can’t quit. We can never give up. What a future America will look like for our children, grandchildren, and Christians in general is very much at stake.

Moral Values: Normal American Culture equals Bourgeois Values

Moral Values:

 Normal American Culture equals Bourgeois  Values

Normal American Culture

Rush Limbaugh

Here’s a pull quote: “Who are the normals? The Americans who built this country, and defended it. When you eat, it’s because a normal grew the food and another normal trucked it to you. When you aren’t murdered in the street or don’t speak German, it’s because a normal with a gun made those things not happen. We normals don’t want to rule over others. We don’t obsess about how you live your life, but also we don’t want to be compelled to signal our approval or pick up the tab. We are every color and creed — though when someone who is incidentally a member of some other group aligns with normals, he/she/xe loses that identity.

“The left drums normals who are black out of its definition of ‘black,’ just as normal women get drummed out of womanhood and normal gays get drummed out gayhood. In a way, the left is making E pluribus unum a reality again — to choose to be normal is to choose to reject silly identity group identification and unite. Instead of saying ‘normal Americans,’ you can just say ‘Americans.’ Note that while leftists rail against the term ‘normals…’” Mr. Schlichter says, “When I use it on Twitter, the reactions are always delightful!”

You know what I mean when I say normal American, don’t you? Many of you in this audience consider yourselves normal Americans, and you know that because you’re normal you’re under assault, because not everybody is normal. There’s some oddballs out there. There’s some freaks and kooks. And you know who they are. They know who they are. But they don’t want to be considered freaks and kooks, so they attack you so that you can’t be normal.

You can’t say there’s a normal. “We’re a melting pot. We are a diverse, giant melting pot of all kinds of different things, and there is no normal.” And you who think you’re normal are gonna be attacked. And that is part and parcel of what’s going on. “Militant normalcy is the result of normal people roused to anger and refusing to be pushed around anymore.”

Mr. Schlichter writes, “We prefer a free society based on personal liberty and mutual respect.

Higher Education opposes Bourgeois Values

RUSH: What essentially happened here at the University of Pennsylvania, Penn, a couple of professors, one of them working at the University of Pennsylvania, the other one University of San Diego, wrote an op-ed suggesting that what might be needed in the United States is a return to some of the nation’s values and moralities of the 1950s. And what happened after that op-ed ran is the story.

“To the list of forbidden ideas on American college campuses, add ‘bourgeois norms.’” In other words, the old advisories of hard work, self-discipline, marriage, respect for authority. When people talk about going back to the fifties, when people talking about reemerging with values from the fifties, they’re basically talking about what?
