America’s 2nd Civil War
Trump derangement syndrome marches on, infecting dozens more in our federal government. Examples include House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who like demented far left liberals, have condemned President Trump for a weak, shameful showing against Vladimir Putin in last week’s Summit in Helsinki. The left wants to eves-drop on Trump and Putin’s conversations with the intent of finding something around which to build an impeachment case. The left now rallies behind an ignorant young, New York, House candidate who wants to turn America into a socialist state. She’s even way left of Bernie Sanders, who was rejected by the DNC in 2016. But today, socialism is where the Democrats are headed. They won’t win this November. But that might make them more likely to use violence to get their way…a disaster for our nation. The doomsday clock has now moved to a scant five minutes before midnight.
Judge rules Trump can DEFUND “Murder Incorporated”
What the liberal left euphemistically calls Planned Parenthood is now being recognized by a growing number of morality-conscious Americans as “Murder Incorporated,” a most appropriate name for an organization dedicated to killing innocent, defenseless unborn children.
Last year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, nearly 600,000 abortions were performed in the United States. Of this number, Planned Parenthood reports that, during the 2016-17 fiscal year, it took the life of more than 300,000 infants in the womb.
The shameful, shocking figures for American abortions might even be higher. Data from the CDC do not include abortions done in California, New Hampshire and in one other state. Offering far more complete figures on abortion is the Guttmacher Institute that receives its data from abortion clinics all across the nation. Statistics from the Guttmacher Institute, as posted this year on the National Right to Life website, show that abortions performed in the U.S. in 2017 totaled more than 900,000, a number of horrific proportions. When added to the annual abortion figures posted by both the CDC and the Guttmacher Institute, over 63 million unborn children were murdered in the womb since Roe vs Wade passed in 1973.
America is not alone in this ungodly infamy. International figures posted for over 100 countries by sources including the World Health Organization and Guttmacher tell of a hideous global atrocity that has ended the lives of more than 50 million infants each year since 1990; a staggering total of more than 1.5 billion infants murdered, mainly for convenience, during that period.
And so, we should be grateful to President Trump for taking on the huge and righteous task of upsetting Murder Incorporated’s plans for killing hundreds of thousands more of our unborn this year and in years to come.
As posted earlier this month on the LifeNews.com website: “A federal judge has ruled in favor of the Trump administration and its impending decision to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business from the Nation’s Title X Family Planning Program. The Planned Parenthood abortion[organization] has multiple federal funding streams, but cutting off the taxpayer dollars it gets from Title X would zap its second largest source of federal funding.”
HHS provides an opportunity to kill off Murder Incorporated. The opportunity for the Trump administration to challenge Planned Parenthood comes from “new guidelines for Title X grants issued by the U.S. Department of health and Human Services.” It introduced “a new grant application that prioritizes sexual risk avoidance strategies, including abstinence. This would leave abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood out of the funding equation.
Even though HHS has yet to finalize its grant revisions, and has yet to formally deny funding to Planned Parenthood, the abortion giant went ahead and sued anyway, challenging that “the new guidelines will put low-income patients at risk.” The federal judge handling the suit ruled “Planned parenthood filed its case prematurely, before it had actually been defunded” ...and he threw it out.
An “entitlement mentality” draws huge criticism. In stinging rebukes of Planned Parenthood’s obsessive emphasis on abortions. Valerie Huber, acting deputy assistant secretary for the Office of Population Affairs at HHS, said their goal is to fund Title X programs that effectively teach sexual risk avoidance, and do not promote abortion. Another critic noted that “Planned Parenthood and other abortion vendors seem terrified that people will discover just how easy it will be to live a healthy life without them. People make many medical choices that don’t include Planned Parenthood, and the Trump Administration is to be commended for attempting to redirect Title X dollars away from abortion vendors. The greed of the abortion lobby is on display as, once again, they go to court to force taxpayers to fund their enterprise.”
Still others have criticized Planned Parenthood for its arrogant “entitlement mentality” that considers the Title X Family Planning Program to be its own “personal slush fund.” The organization’s most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion, with about half a billion dollars coming from taxpayers. LifeNews adds that, in spite of receiving such huge funding, Planned Parenthood offers little evidence that its programs have reduced sexual health risks and teen pregnancies.
Trump’s first assault on Murder Incorporated. As a beginning to the process of completely defunding Murder incorporated, in 2017, the Trump administration cut millions of dollars in grants to Planned Parenthood’s failed Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program. The ugly truth is that Planned Parenthood is all about abortion and nothing much else.
President Trump has made a good start toward defunding Murder Incorporated’s nationwide chain of abortion mills, and the federal courts show signs of recognizing the virtue of stopping the flow of money that keeps them in business.
All Americans must join Trump in the war against Murder Incorporated. We taxpayers have contributed about $500 million to Murder Incorporated’s current income that goes to kill the most defenseless and unprotected members of our society. Although separated by only a thin wall of skin from the air and light that the rest of us enjoy, millions of the unborn are, through no fault of their own, condemned to a horrifying death.
There’s a big sign on a main road just outside my community that says, “Abortion breaks God’s heart.” If it does, then it should break our hearts, too…so much so that we make a personal commitment to help end this terrible barbarism we’re inflicting on ourselves. How harshly might God judge us if we don’t?

Let’s get “personal” about the open borders threat to America
In light of the insane determination of left wing liberals to pursue open borders, and to help this along by eliminating our Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) aliens-policing agency, we must clearly understand how this would undermine the rights and privileges we enjoy as citizens of the United States. To do this we have to take this assault on our nation down to the personal level. Let’s relate an invasion of our borders to someone breaking in to your home. You’ll find this both shocking and enraging.
This comparison of a border invasion to one carried out against someone’s home is from a letter reported to have been sent by an irate woman to the editor of her local newspaper. She wrote:
“Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave. But I say, ‘No! I like it here. It's better than my house. I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I’ve done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).
“According to the [liberal mindset], you [the owner] are required to let me stay in your house. You are required to feed me. You are required to add me to your family's [health] insurance plan. You are required to educate my kids. You are required to provide other benefits to me and to my family.
“If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my right to be there. It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I’m just trying to better myself. I'm a hard-working and honest, person, except for, well, you know, I did break into your house.
“And what a deal it is for me! I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior. Oh yeah, and I demand that you learn my language so that you can communicate with me. Why can't people see how ridiculous this is? Is America populated and governed by idiots?”
Liberals display “fake” compassion. The answers to the lady’s questions are that most Americans can see just how stupid and ludicrous this mindset is… and that, if the idea of open borders scares them enough, they will come out in force this November to vote and drive the liars and traitors out of our government and replace them with true patriots who will protect our precious rights of citizenship. No one has a greater right to freedom in America than those born here or naturalized as U.S. citizens.
The liberal left—most should now be called socialists--has little or no interest in helping the persecuted from other nations to receive asylum here. They only want America to be overwhelmed by illegals who will eventually, and unlawfully, receive voting rights they’ll use to ensure that the liars and traitors in our government become the permanent, richly-rewarded overseers of an American slave population.
Please be sure to do your duty to protect your citizenship…come out to vote this November.
NFL sucks at respecting important issues
This may help you to clearly understand why the public’s respect for the NFL organization has started to crumble. It was sent in by a reader who’s now preparing for another disgusting year of NFL anti-Americanism:
In 2012, the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray. They also had an issue with Tebow wearing “John 3:16” as part of his eye-black to avoid glare, and made him take it off.
…In 2013, the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.
In 2014, Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said "Know Jesus Know Peace" but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.
In 2015, DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing "Find the Cure" eye black for breast cancer awareness.
In 2015, William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (Not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem...oh no).
In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.
In 2016, the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.
So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression, all of a sudden? It seems quite clear based on these facts that the NFL has taken a position against any action by NFL players demonstrating RESPECT for any issue: not for God, social causes such as mental health, cancer, domestic violence, for cops killed arbitrarily for being cops, for the Memory of 9/11...
But they will allow demonstrations of DISRESPECT for our National Flag, our National Anthem, for America , and for the American People…if it will help mollify a particular Group and its supporters.
This is who and what the NFL now has shown itself to be. Does that make you want to watch an NFL game on TV, or worse still, pay a small fortune to attend a game? Please tell me if I’m being too harsh on these, spoiled, over-paid, over-indulged, angry rich guys.
Jim Jordan runs for Speaker to lead House to greatness
There are few in the House of Representatives who’ve expressed strong support for the Trump agenda for America in both words and actions. The most notable include Deven Nunes, Mark Meadows, Bob Goodlatte and Jim Jordan, who’s head of the House Freedom Caucus.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has proven to be a courageous stand-up fighter for the most pressing issue in Congress today: immigration reform that protects the safety of U.S. citizens and safeguards our national sovereignty.
Jordan has now decided that to achieve the legislation that serves American best, he must launch a campaign for the House speakership so that for the first time in nearly eight years there will be a speaker who puts citizens first, far beyond the interests of political parties and the greed of corporate billionaires.
When it came to elevating the people over politics and money, former speaker John Boehner was a joke. The current Speaker, Paul Ryan cares little or nothing for the wellbeing of the people, and everything for the objectives of the Republican establishment and the profit motives of the Wall Street crowd
Jordan has launched his run for the speakership by commenting: “Right now, the most important thing is that we do what we [promised]. We get the right kind of immigration bill across the finish line…we actually make the tax cuts permanent…we reform welfare..
It’s pretty clear that the race to replace Ryan as Speaker will be a battle for the heart and soul of the new Republican Party. Jordan’s run will be pitted against likely opponents House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise, who barely survived an assault by a deranged liberal activist last year at a Republican softball game practice. Both are strong opponents, but Jordan has that Trump quality that makes him love a fight combined with the will to never give up against the deep state’s determination to make Americans slaves of the liberal left.
Reports from the House say that many Republicans have urged Jordan to run. In addition to his conservative credentials, he serves on the powerful House Judiciary and Oversight Committees.
Jim Jordan is the most likely choice to make the House great…maybe for the first time ever. President Trump would be remiss if he didn’t throw his support behind Jordan.
Trump’s rejected tariff suggestion could end all trade wars
The G7 nations’ hate for Donald Trump is so overwhelming that their leaders may now be considered victims of “Trump derangement syndrome.” Their anger has kept them from understanding the Trump deal-making process, where he begins negotiating at the extreme opposite end of what the other side wants….and then he negotiates to some “win-win” middle ground.
Trudeau, Macron, Merkel and the others completely missed Trump’s real objective in announcing new tariffs on G7 exports to the U.S. Maybe G7 leaders are too greedy or too stupid. Trump wanted them to be shocked and concerned enough to strongly consider his suggestion that all tariffs be removed from trading among all nations. Let trade be tariff-free everywhere. Let the balance of exports against imports be determined by the quality, performance and price of goods manufactured anywhere.
In some cases, quotas would need to be maintained or established to save the economies of certain nations where producers don’t measure up competitively. A quota limits the volume or value of a product that is imported in order to protect poor performing or fledgling domestic industries from going out of business. It gives these industries time to gain strength. It saves jobs and can increase employment opportunities through increased sales of domestic products.
Sometimes quotas can become dangerous: when they’re maintained for too long and present an unfair restraint on trade, and also when quotas force an importing country’s consumers to pay more for a domestic product than they would if it was imported.
Quotas should be reasonable and rare and, in that way, they aren’t nearly the impediment to trade posed by adding on stiff tariffs or due to the costly, outright crimes committed by China in making trade conditional upon exporters giving up their intellectual property.
If the G7’s scathing criticism of Trump and his new tariff intentions, and its call to isolate him from their future activities is their idea of a strategy to force Trump to some softer middle ground, the G7 is making a big mistake. This response shows it has little interest in the truth about how their own tariffs have created trade imbalances that have punished the United States: the single most important ally necessary for defending Western Europe against Putin’s military encroachment in the region.
The G7’s blind outrage also reveals it to be far behind Trump in the art of the deal. We can only hope that, in time, G7 members will realize that eliminating all tariffs is the best way to make free trade fair trade across the world.
