Dems set victimhood criteria – most lives don’t matter!

Canada Free Press ^ | 08/02/16 | A. Dru Kristenev 

What is touted by democrats as the be-all and end-all of equality – universal healthcare and special rights for so-called minority populations – is the institution of unequal treatment, the ultimate perversion of “all men are created equal.” No one
By the time Hillary Clinton accepted the democrat nomination for President of the United States, the party’s concept of what constitutes a victim had finished undergoing some thorough redesign. It’s taken decades, but words like ‘race,’ ‘slavery,’ ‘privilege,’ ‘rights,’ ‘equity,’ ‘education’ and the most bandied about ‘healthcare,’ now have different application.
As much as politics have always been integral to life in general, permeating everything from the PTA and church to the local grange, it has taken such root in our society that it’s reflected in most conversation. The Democratic National Convention, however, has set its standards for acceptable speech and the backpocket media have absorbed the talking points. Consequently, there are only two types of victims – those disadvantaged by sex or skin color – and, accordingly, both determine economic status.

PBS documentary exposed Paul Ryan as chief House GOP amnesty plotter

numbersusa.com ^ | 10/21/15 | Roy Beck 

We sit on the precipice of the possibility that the most powerful and committed Republican House amnesty leader will become Speaker of the House.
My description of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is not based just on what I know but on what PBS proved Tuesday night with its premier airing of a two-hour documentary, IMMIGRATION BATTLE. It provided detail after detail of Ryan's back-room efforts to get a version of the Senate Gang of 8 amnesty through the House over the last two years.
Perhaps you need to know nothing more than that Rep. Luis Guitierrez (D-IL) made it clear in the documentary that he regards Ryan as far more a friend of illegal immigrants than is Nancy Pelosi.

Doubts Start Creeping In for Democrats

politico.com ^ | 8/1/16 | Jeff Greenfield 

Some of this uneasiness stems from what has already happened in the past year.

Every assertion about Trump during the primary battle proved wrong: he’ll never run; he won’t file financial disclosures; he’ll be forced out by his own words; all those people at this rallies won’t actually turn out to vote; he has a ceiling; the party will coalesce around an alternative; the institutional wing of the party will never accede to his nomination. Perhaps most importantly, it was hard for many insiders to imagine that when voters were truly asked to fill in the bubble beside the name “Donald Trump” on a presidential ballot, they wouldn’t be jolted back to reality and vote for a real candidate.

None of those things happened. The establishment folded; Trump’ ceiling just got higher, and he ended up collecting more primary votes than any Republican candidate in history, wiping out a generation of ambitious, aspiring GOP leaders with serious track records. To say the least, this record does not inspire confidence that the normal patterns will hold in a general election.
Indeed, at a panel of Democratic pollsters last week, Hart Research president Geoff Garin warned that 2016 would be “a close competitive election. The country,” he added, "is largely frustrated with the status quo, and, as one NBC poll found, huge majorities wanted change even if they don’t know what that change is.”

"End The War On Black People"-BlackLivesMatter Demands Reparations, Investments, Political Power!

Zero Hedge ^ | 8-1-16 | Tyler Durden 

Today "The Movement for Black Lives," a coalition "more than 50 organizations representing thousands of Black people from across the country" posted a 22 page list of "demands" in what they called "A Vision for Black Lives: Policy Demands for Black Power, Freedom and Justice."
The demands are fairly extensive and call for, among many other things, the following for Black people: free and open access to all public universities, retroactive forgiveness of all student loan debt, passage of H.R. 40 to study a "Reparation Proposal for African Americans," removal of police from schools, retroactive decriminalization and release of all people held on drug and prostitution-related offenses and a restructuring of local, state and federal tax codes to achieve a "radical and sustainable redistribution of wealth."
The policy demands were summarized as follows:
Together, we demand an end to the wars against Black people. We demand that the government repair the harms that have been done to Black communities in the form of reparations and targeted long-term investments. We also demand a defunding of the systems and institutions that criminalize and cage us. This document articulates our vision of a fundamentally different world.
This agenda continues the legacy of our ancestors who pushed for reparations, Black self-determination and community control; and also propels new iterations of movements such as efforts for reproductive justice, holistic healing and reconciliation, and ending violence against Black cis, queer, and trans people. A full list of the demands is presented below (and can be viewed here):

Israel Proves the Desalination Era Is Here

Scientific American ^ | July 29, 2016 | Rowan Jacobsen 

July 19, 2016 — Ten miles south of Tel Aviv, I stand on a catwalk over two concrete reservoirs the size of football fields and watch water pour into them from a massive pipe emerging from the sand. The pipe is so large I could walk through it standing upright, were it not full of Mediterranean seawater pumped from an intake a mile offshore.
“Now, that’s a pump!” Edo Bar-Zeev shouts to me over the din of the motors, grinning with undisguised awe at the scene before us. The reservoirs beneath us contain several feet of sand through which the seawater filters before making its way to a vast metal hangar, where it is transformed into enough drinking water to supply 1.5 million people.
We are standing above the new Sorek desalination plant, the largest reverse-osmosis desal facility in the world, and we are staring at Israel’s salvation....

Given The Alternative, I’ll Take Trump

Jewish Press ^ | July 31st, 2016 | Dennis Prager 

During the presidential primaries I devoted many hours of radio and many columns to criticizing Donald Trump. His nomination caused me grief as an American, a Republican, and a conservative. That his character defects, gaps in knowledge on some important issues, and lack of identifiably conservative principles meant little to so many Republican voters is quite troubling.
(Though, I might add, it is even more troubling that virtually all Democrats ignored the even worse character of Hillary Clinton, as well as the idiotic socialist ideas of Sen. Bernie Sanders.)
Anti-Trump conservatives such as Jonah Goldberg, Bill Kristol, Ben Shapiro, Bret Stephens, and George Will are not merely people I admire – they are friends and colleagues. Goldberg, Stephens, and Will have made multiple videos for my Prager University website that have received millions of views. Shapiro and I have spent Shabbat together. I have had the privilege of writing for Kristol’s Weekly Standard magazine and hosting him on my radio show many times. And I have enthusiastically promoted their books.
These individuals are special to me not only as thinkers, but as people. However, in the final analysis, I do not find their arguments compelling.
The choice this November is tragic. As often happens in life, the choice is between bad and worse, not bad and good.
But America has made that choice before. When forced to choose between bad and worse, we supported Stalin against Hitler, and we supported right-wing authoritarians against Communist totalitarians.
It seems to me that anti-Trump conservatives want to remain morally pure. I understand that temptation. I am tempted, too. But if you wish to vanquish the bad, it is not possible – at least not on this side of the afterlife – to remain pure.
The most moving interview of my 33 years in radio was with Irene Opdyke, a Polish Catholic woman. Opdyke became the mistress of a married Nazi officer in order to save the lives of 12 Jews. She hid them in the cellar of the officer’s house in Warsaw. There were some Christians who called my show to say Opdyke’s actions were wrong, that she had in fact sinned because she knowingly committed a mortal sin. In their view, she compromised Catholic/Christian doctrine.
In my view – and, I believe, the view of most Catholics and other Christians – she brought glory to her God and her faith. Why? Because circumstances almost always determine what is moral, even for religious people like myself who believe in moral absolutes. That’s why the act of dropping atom bombs on Japan was moral. The circumstances (ending a war that would otherwise continue taking millions of lives) made moral what under other circumstances would be immoral.
In the 2016 presidential race, I am not interested in moral purity. I am interested in defeating the left and its political arm, the Democratic Party. The notion (expressed by virtually every anti-Trump conservative) that we can live with another four years of a Democratic president is, forgive me, mind-boggling.
To that end, with at least one, and probably multiple, additional leftists on the Supreme Court, a Republican presidential victory in 2020 would mean little. All the left needs is the judicial branch, especially the Supreme Court. Left-wing judges pass so many left-wing laws that they render those who control Congress, and even the White House, almost irrelevant.
Here, then, are nine reasons (there are more) why a conservative should prefer a Trump presidency to a Democratic presidency:
* Prevent a left-wing Supreme Court.
* Increase the defense budget.
* Repeal, or at least modify, the Dodd-Frank act.
* Prevent Washington, D.C., from becoming a state and giving the Democrats another two permanent senators.
* Repeal Obamacare.
* Curtail illegal immigration, a goal that doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with xenophobia or nativism (just look at Western Europe).
* Reduce job-killing regulations on large and small businesses.
* Lower the corporate income tax and bring back hundreds of billions of offshore dollars to the United States.
* Continue fracking, which the left, in its science-rejecting hysteria, opposes.
For these reasons, I, unlike my friends, could not live with my conscience if I voted to help the left win the presidency.
I just don’t understand how anyone who understands the threat the left and the Democrats pose to America would refuse to vote for the only person who at this point can stop them.
