Abortion: can we call it was it is, and stop calling it what it isn’t?

What it isn’t is a woman’s health issue, nor a woman’s right to choose.

With two exceptions, no woman, no man, no human has the “right” to choose to end the life of another human, regardless of age.

Most would think that when I say, two exceptions, I’m thinking of the same tired old excuse of, “except in the case of life or health of the mother.”

Well, you’d be half right. The “health” of the mother is an all-encompassing copout, making it easier for pro-abortion activists to help legitimize the practice.

The following scenario is one I would hope no one ever has to find themselves in, and, in my opinion, the only acceptable “choice” during a pregnancy. read more

Nissan All-Electric Opus Camping Trailer

The RV market probably isn’t quite ready for a full-blown electric motorhome just yet, but electric vehicles can still have a positive impact on vehicle camping by lending their powerful battery technology. With the new Nissan x Opus camping trailer, Nissan shows how EV batteries can fully power the equipment of a non-engined camper. The Leaf-derived Energy ROAM battery pack gives the innovative, award-winning Air Opus inflatable six-sleeper enough juice to keep campers comfortable and fed for up to a week, all without the emissions and noise of a gas generator.

Nissan already offers travelers an all-electric mini-campervan option, and now it shows how that very same battery technology could be used in a non-powered trailer, with all the battery power going to onboard amenities like the lighting, microwave and fridge. read more

The Media’s Latest Anti-Trump Hero

from the American Spectator:

Andrew McCabe: Faux Hero of Our Times

What a tangled web he weaves, when first he practices to deceive — and all this with the mainstream media’s eager connivance.

The progressive mainstream media have declared former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to be a Hero of the Republic for having launched a counterintelligence investigation of President Trump after he fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. In interviews on CBS and NBC, McCabe has claimed that FBI officials under his supervision opened the probe because they believed that it was “possible” that Trump had acted on behalf of the Kremlin when he fired Comey.

On NBC’s Today Show, McCabe told Savannah Guthrie that the FBI “had information that led us to believe that there might be a threat to national security — in this case that the president himself might, in fact, be a threat to the United States’ national security.” read more

Joke of the Day

A reporter checks in at some old hotel smack in middle of nowhere. Coming into the lobby, he is confronted with the strange sight of an old Indian, whittling stick, long black hair, reddish skin, sitting on one of the chairs as if he intends never to get up.

“That’s Old Chief Forget-Me-Not,” whispers the man behind the desk reverently, “he is allowed to stay here for free because he let me build my hotel on his reservation.”

“Why the weird name?” whispers the reporter. read more

Yes, There are Real Hate Crimes Occurring in the United States

from the Federalist:

 The Epidemic Of Anti-Jewish Hate Crimes In Brooklyn Is No Hoax

While the nation was focused on a hoaxed hate crime, Brooklyn’s Jews have been repeatedly and actually attacked. Are we not discussing it because most of the perpetrators are black?

As much of the country was transfixed by a hoaxed hate crime in Chicago over the past month, a very real wave of hate crimes in Brooklyn has been taking place. In New York City overall there have been 36 hate crimes against Jews so far this year, according to The New York Times, compared to only 21 last year. In the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn alone, ultra-orthodox Jews have been violently attacked at least 15 times since October of last year. read more

The Man who Knew both of our Most Beloved Presidents

The patriot who knew both Washington and Lincoln

John Quincy Adams

On Feb. 21, 1848, “Old Man Eloquent” John Quincy Adams suffered a stroke at his desk in the House chamber. He had just given an impassioned speech against the Democrat plan to expand slavery into the Western territories acquired after the Mexican-American War. He died two days later without regaining consciousness. A bronze marker on the U.S. House floor indicates where the desk of John Quincy Adams once stood.

John Quincy Adams was the only U.S president to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives after having been president, serving as a Congressman from Massachusetts from 1830 to 1848.

Nicknamed “The Hell-Hound of Slavery” for relentlessly speaking out against slavery, John Quincy Adams single-handedly led the fight to lift the gag rule which prohibited discussion of slavery on the House floor. read more

Obama’s 2008 Platform Would be Rejected by Dems Today

from IBD:

Would Barack Obama Be Too Conservative For Today’s Democrats?

When Bernie Sanders announced on Tuesday that he was running for president, the only surprising thing was how much competition he’ll have on the far left. The current crop of 2020 candidates is so liberal, in fact, that it makes the Barack Obama of 2008 look positively right wing.

When Obama first ran, he tried to position himself as something of a fiscal moderate.

Obama complained about “the orgy of spending” under President George W. Bush. He pledged that all his spending plans were more than offset with spending cuts.

“What I’ve done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut,” he said. read more
