Pro-Choice: Choose Adoption


The recent troubling videos profiling the questionable abortion practices of Planned Parenthood also reveals how the Left's "pro-choice" message is a misnomer. The don't want the choice that is best for the baby, they want to promote death or poverty.

The Left wins when a woman has an abortion. Their core supporters want less humans on this planet and they also want the freedom to engage in transactional relationships without resulting in a baby.

The Left also wins when they have a single mom keep a child and raise it with the help of the state, guaranteeing one generation or more of Democrat voters.

The Left losses when a baby is adopted to a married husband and wife. Married people are more likely to be conservative. A child raised by married parents is less likely to need government assistance, less likely to get in trouble with the law, less likely to do poorly in school, less likely to do drugs, and less likely to vote Democrat.

Of every 100 single women having a baby, only 1-2 choose the adoption route. Back in the 1970s and earlier, the adoption rate was ten times higher. Meanwhile for every 4 children who are born, at least 1 is aborted. There are 30-40 couples in line for every baby available for adoption.

America would be a better place if women's clinics like Planned Parenthood promoted adoption as the preferred outcome so children could be raised by a husband and wife who actually planned parenthood. How is this not better than promoting termination of pregnancies so baby parts could be sold, or for a single mom, with no support from the child's father, to raise a child in poverty?

As a adoptive parent myself, who knows the birth-mom, I know that adoption is the best outcome for the new parents, the single woman (who was, to quote Barack Obama, "punished with a baby"), and, most of all, for the child.

Be Pro-Choice and Choose Adoption.

13 Reasons Carson Is Right To Be Against A Muslim U.S. President


Once again, the mainstream media's response to a gotcha' question exposes why they are not practicing good journalism.

In response to a question from NBC's Chuck Todd, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson opined that he would not support a Muslim as president of the United States.

From the main stream media reaction you would have thought Carson had used the "N" word or uttered an anti-Semite slur.

The liberal reaction means one of two things. First it could mean that liberals are ignorant of how Muslims practice their religion. This is disturbing, if they actually know so little about Muslims given our war against Islamic jihadists for the past decades. The other option is they are only looking to paint Carson as a bigot  to pull down his favorables. This is contemptible, because journalists are supposed to report the news, not direct it.

Carson knows the truth about Islam.

Thanks to Glen Beck in his best selling It IS About Islam book, the lies about Islam have been clearly revealed.

Lie #1 - "Islam is the religion of peace and Islamic terrorists aren't really Muslims."

Lie #2 - "Islam is not much different than Christianity and Judaism."

Lie #3 - "Jihad is a peaceful, internal struggle, not a war against infidels."

Lie #4 - "Muslims don't actually seek to live under sharia, let alone impose it on others; there are so many interpretations of it anyway."

Lie #5 - "America is safe from sharia law."

Lie #6 - "The Caliphate is a fanciful dream."

Lie #7 - "Islam is tolerant of non-Muslims."

Lie #8 - "Addressing frustration, poverty, and joblessness in the Muslim world -- maybe even climate change -- will end terrorism."

Lie #9 - "Critics of Islam are bigots."

Lie #10 - "Islam respects the rights of women."

Lie #11 - "Iran can be trusted with a nuclear weapon."

Lie #12 - "The Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate, mainstream Islamic group."

Lie #13 - "Islam respects freedom of speech."

Sadly, you can find many in the mainstream media that belief and repeat these lies.

Thank goodness Ben Carson is not blind to the truth. A practicing Muslim would be a terrible choice for an American president because his belief system is against the values inherent to the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Pop Tart Gun Bad - Clock Bomb Good ???. . .


The son of a Islamic activist brings a clock to school and is evasive about why it looks much like a bomb. He gets invited to the White House.

Meanwhile, a seven year old was suspended from school for chewing his Pop Tart into the shape of a gun. He was not invited to the White House.

Do you need more proof that political correctness is running our schools?

Fiddlin' - Deserter Bergdahl on Broadway . . .


It looks like Sgt Bowe Bergdahl is going to be court-martialed on desertion charges.

Once again our incompetent Commander-in-Chief made a mess of things when he traded five known terrorists for a disaffected soldier who walked off his post and endangered the lives of his fellow troops.

Time to turn the Bergdahl fiasco into a Broadway musical.

:)

Hello Bergdahl -ie
Sung to the tune of Hello Dolly.

Hello Bergdahl -ie,......
Well, hello, Bergdahl -ie
We're upset to have you back where you came from
You look like hell, Bergdahl -ie.......
I can tell, Bergdahl -ie
You're AWOLin'...you're appallin'...you're still goin' wrong
I see the troops swayin'......
While you're off betrayin'
Switched to your old favorite side, the Taliban
So..... he's a fail, fellas.......
Find him an empty jail, fellas
Bergdahl -ie'll never go away again

Diversity? Conservatives Open, Liberals Close Minded . . .


Earlier this week the conservative university, Liberty University, invited socialist Bernie Sanders to address their students. Sanders does not share the religious Christian world view followed by most of the students there. Nevertheless, the university was open minded enough to invite someone with opposing views to talk to their students.

While the values espoused by conservatives include hard work, morality, and thrift, one of the most favorite values of liberals is diversity. Unfortunately, this is often a false value that is rarely actually displayed by liberal institutions. For example, higher education is a bastion of liberal thought where diversity is king (or should I say queen in the interests of diversity).

Sadly, the diversity in action is wildly missing when it comes to diversity of thought. The percentage of liberals teaching or administering at most leading universities can be up to ninety percent or more, hardly evidence of diversity.

You may argue that this is because no conservative wants a career in positions such as theater, women's literature, and queer studies but couldn't the universities at least invite conservatives to speak at graduations? In the interest of diversity, we should expect at least half of the commencement speakers to be conservatives, right?

Here is a list of commencement speakers at the leading U.S. universities for 2014 and 2015. Liberals in blue, conservatives in red.

Ivy League Schools

Brown University - Former San Francisco State University President Robert Corrigan (2015) / Writer Isabel Wilkerson, a former NY Times bureau chief and expert on black migration (2014)

Columbia University - Democrat Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (2015) / Actor and Screenwriter Dan Futterman (2014)

Cornell University - Former Democrat congresswoman Gabby Giffords (2015) / Actor Ed Helm, known for The Office and Hangover. (2014)

Dartmouth College - Sometimes conservative New York Times Columnist David Brooks (2015) / TV Producer Sonda Rhimes, known for Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and President Barack Obama appointed her to serve as a trustee for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts appointed by Barack Obama (2014)

Harvard University - Liberal former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (2015) / Liberal former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (2014)

Princeton University - Director Christopher Nolan (2015) / Former Vice President Al Gore the climate change prophet (2014)

University of Pennsylvania - Samantha Powers, US Ambassador to the United Nations (2015) / Singer John Legend, known for supporting Earth Institute's sustainable development and AIDS Service Center NYC (2014)

Yale University - Vice President Joe Biden (2015) / Democrat Secretary of State John Kerry (2014)

Other Top Line Schools

Duke University - Paul Farmer, CEO, Partners in Health, social justice champion (2015) / General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (2014)

John Hopkins University - Pixar President Ed Catmull, Democrat contributor (2015) / YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, Democratic fund raiser (2014)

Massachusetts Institute of Technology - Megan Smith, CTO of United States appointed by Barack Obama (2015) / Dupont CEO Ellen Kullman, 61% of political donations made to Democrats (2014)

Northwestern University - alumni IBM CEO Virginia Rometty (2015) / Conductor Riccardo Muti, Chicago Symphony Orchestra (2014)

Stanford University - Liberal NBC News correspondent Richard Engel (2015) / Liberal philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates (2014)

Tufts University - Madeleine Albright, Bill Clinton's Secretary of State (2015) / Anne Marie Slaughter, former Democrat State Department official (2014)

University of California Berkeley - Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff, regular Democrat campaign contributor (2015) / Democrat Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (2014)

University of Southern California -  Chicago investment fund president and big Democrat campaign donor Mellody Hobson (2015) / Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff, regular Democrat campaign contributor (2014)

University of Notre Dame - BBC Chairman Chris Patten, former Conservative member of Parliament (2014 rescheduled to 2015 due to health reasons)

University of Rochester - Education strategist Deborah Bial (founder and president of The Posse Foundation) (2015) / Liberal CNN commentator Chris Matthews (2014)

Wake Forest University - Stephen Colbert, Comedian (2015) / Jill Abramson, executive editor, New York Times (2014)

Williams and Mary - Condoleezza Rice, Bush Secretary of State (2015) / Medal of Honor recipient Sergeant First Class Leroy Petry (2014)

So, out of 20 top schools, only four conservative speakers in the past two years were invited to speak to graduates, only one if you focus on Ivy League schools.

Where is the diversity?

Not at our most prestigious universities. But you can find it at conservative Liberty University.  You can also find it at Praeger University where George Will (never invited to speak at mainstream universities) did a great commencement speech.

Liberals seek a diversity of gender, sexual orientation, or skin color, but the last thing they want is a diversity of thinking.

Sorry Trey, Hillary's Taking Us For A Ride


The Benghazi hearing is not going to find any damaging emails on Hillary.

They are looking for the wrong emails.

They need to focus on the deleted emails, but instead Hillary is distracting them with the emails she kept.

"These are not the emails you're looking for." Hillary is pulling a Jedi mind trick on the gullible, confederate main stream media. While they do stories that Hillary can spin in her favor, the dangerous emails are ignored because they have been destroyed.

Astoundingly, Hillary Clinton, who as the top diplomat of our nations, was given access to the highest level of classified documents and was allowed to control the content of her communications by have her own computer server. She shamelessly announced that she deleted 30,000 "personal emails".

That might be excusable if not for the numerous examples of foreign entities paying big money to the Clinton Foundation and more big money for Bill Clinton speeches while at the same time getting "coincidental" State Department approval for actions that benefit these foreign entities.

Now with the past Clinton reputation for skirting the laws, we should be highly suspicious that the deleted emails contain incriminating evidence that Hillary was breaking the law to fill the Clinton coffers with lucre.

Hillary learned a lesson from the mistake of the politician she most closely resembles -- Richard Nixon. Nixon did not destroy the tapes that proved to be his downfall.

We can criticize Hillary for countless things, but being stupid is not one of them. She's smart enough to try and destroy any incriminating emails. Whether that holds up, we will have to wait and see.

Don't hold your breath. Bryan Pagliano, the State Department employee who set up Hillary's server, has announced that he will plead the Fifth Amendment.

Following another Nixon strategy, Hillary's working on a cover-up.

There is Climate Change, But It's Not What You Think . . .


President Obama's trip to Alaska to preach about the evils of climate change are misguided. 

He is talking about the wrong climate change.

For at least a generation, the liberal establishment has been preaching the doom and gloom message of first -- global warming, and when evidence proved missing -- climate change. They claim that over the past century, due to the damaging actions of man, the world is on a path to ruin. They want to force people to stop using fossil fuels and use carbon taxes to collect revenue from those they perceive as using too much energy. They think that getting people to drive electric cars and stopping the development of third world countries will stop climate change. Fortunately, most people recognize that any action taken is unlikely to have measurable results, besides making one feel better.

However, I must agree that there has been a climate change over the past century, only it is not the one liberals usually worry about.
  • Homes had married couples living together. 
  • The vast majority of young people did not think promiscuity was acceptable.
  • Music was family friendly and not laced with profanity. 
  • Movies were geared to all audiences and not filled with offensive material.
  • Families had books, pianos and radio programs for home entertainment instead of violent, time-wasting TV and video games. 
  • People lived within their means and elected a government that did the same.
Sadly, this is the real climate change we have seen in America. 

Liberals like to say that we have the capacity to change, to protect ourselves, to use our intelligence for the good of the planet and its inhabitants. Good point, but let's not waste resources trying to control the weather. Let's focus on addressing moral climate change, where our actions can have real results.
