Absolute Liberal Insanity: Combat White Supremacy With More Abortions

newsbusters ^ | June 24, 2017 | Corinne Weaver 

Listen up, America! The feminist left wants you to know that the solution to the white supremacy plague, that began when the pilgrims hit Plymouth Rock, is more white abortions. In fact, “the white family unit must be destroyed.”

In an article published by Medusa Magazine, (a magazine whose website is headed by the slogan “Feminist Revolution Now!”) columnist Nicole Valentine argued that the concept of abortion is something that is radically misunderstood. The pro-choice argument that abortion is a constitutional right inherently implies that it is an idea rooted in white supremacist thought. Why?
Because the Constitution “was drafted and signed by white men, for white men.” This is why there are so many shootings and hate crimes in the United States, in her opinion. Somehow, the author completely forgot that one of the Supreme Court Justices who aided the Roe v. Wade decision was Thurgood Marshall, the first African American justice on the Court. So. . .is abortion still a hate crime against “women of color” if the decision made was by a relatively diverse Supreme Court?
The author tried to say that “women of color” are not granted the same access to abortion facilities as white women are, since apparently the United States is based on a mentality that only the health of the white woman should be preserved. Valentine is here to tell us the hard facts: “women of color simply do not have the absolute choice when it comes to their bodies.”
How does the author propose to “level the playing field?” It is so simple. “White women should be encouraged to abort their white children, and to use their freed-up time and resources to assist women of color who have no other choice but to raise their children.” It’s an interesting statement, because in this case, the author is not denying that there is some element of genocide in the idea of abortion. If anything, it seems like she is calling for a low-key infant genocide to solve what she considered to be an intrinsic problem.
Except the genocide is already happening, just not to the babies Valentine would prefer. According to the CDC, in 2013 black women had 35% of all the nation’s abortions, while blacks make up just 13.3% of the population. Tragically, access to abortion doesn’t seem to be a problem for black women.
“White women: It is time to do your part!” she stated. Adopt colored children, and prevent the conception of white children at all costs. Since your forefathers started this “parasitic” culture by oppressing anyone who was not white with their “white fathers, submissive white mothers, and most critically, white children,” the solution is to end the existence of anyone who claims descent from these people. Clearly.
Her statements do a grave injustice to the efforts that the United States has put forth to ensure equality. By offering death and murder as a solution, she only makes the problem infinitely worse.

The more dismal deluded Democrats scream about Trump in the media bubble, the more he keeps winning!

The London Daily Mail ^ | June 21, 2017 | Piers Morgan 

‘Democrats lose again (0-4),’ gloated President Donald Trump last night after his party won Georgia’s vacant 6th Congressional District.

Then he added an extra ball-spiking slam: ‘Total disarray.’

Unlike some of Trump’s public statements, this was one that no Democrat could legitimately contest for factual accuracy.
They really HAVE lost all four special House elections since he won the White House.
And they really ARE in total disarray.
I’ve spent the past few months warning liberals their constant hysterical behaviour in relation to Trump would backfire and simply strengthen his position.
Weeping, wailing and marching every time he breaks wind isn’t going to work.
Now we are beginning to see hard ballot box proof of this theory.
Make no mistake, last night’s defeat was a devastating one for the Democrats.....

Trump just ended a long tradition of celebrating Ramadan at the White House

The Washington Post ^ | June 24, 2017 | Amy B Wang 

In the early days of December 1805, a handful of prominent politicians received formal invitations to join President Thomas Jefferson for a White House dinner.

Whatever Jefferson could have foreseen for the young country’s future, it appears the modern-day White House tradition of marking Ramadan with an iftar dinner or Eid celebration has come to an end.
Ramadan, which falls on the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, started on May 27 this year and ends at sundown Saturday. Muslims around the world will mark the end of the holy month by celebrating the holiday Eid al-Fitr, the “feast of breaking of the fast.”

For the first time in nearly two decades, Ramadan has come and gone without the White House recognizing it with an iftar or Eid celebration, as had taken place each year under the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations. In recent weeks, several former White House staff members told The Post they would usually begin planning an iftar “months in advance” and didn’t anticipate the Trump White House could pull something off before the end of Ramadan.

White House officials did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

In late May, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly said the State Department would break with recent tradition and not host a Ramadan reception, as it had done nearly annually for two decades. On Saturday, Tillerson released a brief statement sending “best wishes to all Muslims celebrating Eid al-Fitr.”

“This holiday marks the culmination of Ramadan, a month in which many experience meaning and inspiration in acts of fasting, prayer, and charity,” Tillerson said in the statement. “This day offers an opportunity to reflect on our shared commitment to building peaceful and prosperous communities. Eid Mubarak.”

Planned Parenthood spent $734,000 in failed Georgia race

The Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, June 21, 2017 | Bradford Richardson 

Jon Ossoff lost the House race in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District despite receiving nearly three-quarters of $1 million from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

With $734,000 in campaign contributions, the abortion giant was the second-biggest spender on the Democratic side of the ledger — only trailing the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which poured $4.9 million into the race.

Remember that California single payer plan? Yeah… never mind.

Hot ^ | June 24, 2017 | JAZZ SHAW 

Earlier this month we reported that California was in a bit of a quandary. They were bound and determined to have a single payer health plan for their citizens no matter what the Republicans wanted to do on the national level. And by golly, they got a plan put together in the state legislature and moved it out of committee, despite the fact that it was going to cost more than the total GDP of the state.
Then it made it out onto the floor of the Assembly. As Leslie Eastman of Legal Insurrection tells us, the cold light of day seems to have given some of the legislators second thoughts and the plan has gone back on the shelf.
I recently reported that California Senate Bill 562, which would establish a single payer healthcare system within the state, had recently cleared a major hurdle by passing through a state legislative committee.
However, the measure died upon entering the California Assembly.
A high-profile effort to establish a single-payer healthcare system in California sputtered Friday when Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) decided to shelve the proposal.
Rendon announced late Friday afternoon that the bill, Senate Bill 562 by state Sens. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) and Toni Atkins (D-San Diego), would not advance to a policy hearing in his house, making it all but certain the measure will not be acted upon this year.
“SB 562 was sent to the Assembly woefully incomplete,” Rendon said in a statement. “Even senators who voted for SB 562 noted there are potentially fatal flaws in the bill, including the fact it does not address many serious issues, such as financing, delivery of care, cost controls, or the realities of needed action by the Trump administration and voters to make SB 562 a genuine piece of legislation.”
Really? The bill was “woefully incomplete?” Which part, exactly? I’m just taking a shot in the dark here, but it might be the bit about “financing, delivery of care, cost controls.” You mean you couldn’t figure out those details once it came out of committee?

While you consider that news, keep in mind that this is what the liberals in not only California but around the rest of the nation want to push on the entire country. And that attitude remains even after the dismal day when none other than the Washington Post threw in the towel and said that it might just sink the fiscal ship.
The government’s price tag would be astonishing. When Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) proposed a “Medicare for all” health plan in his presidential campaign, the nonpartisan Urban Institute figured that it would raise government spending by $32 trillion over 10 years, requiring a tax increase so huge that even the democratic socialist Mr. Sanders did not propose anything close to it.
Single-payer advocates counter that government-run health systems in other developed countries spend much less than the United States does on its complex public-private arrangement. They say that if the United States adopted a European model, it could expand coverage to everyone by realizing a mountain of savings with no measureable decline in health outcomes, in part because excessive administrative costs and profit would be wrung from the system.
In fact, the savings would be less dramatic; the Urban Institute’s projections are closer to reality. The public piece of the American health-care system has not proven itself to be particularly cost-efficient.
Much of this is a problem of scale. The smaller the population of a given country or state and the more they are already used to socialist style control of all their assets, the easier it is to pull off something approaching single payer. (But even in Canada, with their tiny population and devoted socialist climate they’ve run into serious delivery problems, wait times and a hard time finding doctors.) When you crank it up to even the size of a state like California the balloon bursts quickly.
But fear not, California, because I HAVE A PLAN. Your problems will soon be a thing of the past. You know how west coast liberals are always preaching the evils of giving “tax cuts to the rich” and how the wealthiest among us should pay their fair share? Surely that applies at the state level also. With that in mind, I invite any California legislators to steal this idea from me at no cost and introduce the “Movie Star Single Payer Subsidization Act of 2017.”
Under this bold plan, every Hollywood Star, Writer, Director, Producer or Studio executive who earns more than two million dollars in a single year will generously forfeit all income in excess of that amount to fund a single payer health care system for the state. On top of that, the movie studios will be even more helpful. The profits from all films which exceed 25% of the production costs will go into the same fund. Just working off the back of a napkin here it seems to me that they could recover a nice chunk of that $400B this year alone with room to spare.
That may sound drastic, but I know what big fans of Barack Obama you all were for the last eight years, so let’s keep in mind what he said. At some point, you’ve made enough money, right?
