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

WND Exclusive – Dem’s New Ammo Tax to Result in More Deaths?

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily: 

Don’t ever let anyone convince you that all Democrats are complete fiscal or economic ignoramuses. It may just seem that way listening to the new darling of the radical left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

For sure, there appear to be some economic principles that just escape them, like the impact of Medicare-for-All, but at least some Democrats understand basic tax policy and the effects of taxation. At least some understand that if you want more of something, tax it less, and if you want less, tax it more.

Take, for example, Connecticut Democratic state Rep. Jillian Gilchrest’s new ammunition tax proposal. She wants to increase the state ammunition tax to 50 percent. Currently, ammo is taxed at the same rate as every other consumer good, and that just won’t do. read more

Video Podcast – A Border Cable – Green is the New Red Deal

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A Texas Republican Congressman, Will Hurd, has an idea to run fiber optic cable from one end of the country to the other, under ground, to detect people crossing our border illegally. This is in lieu of, or instead of a border wall.

Great plan. The cable won’t stop anyone from crossing, but will simply alert border patrol that someone, or group of someones has.

The “Green New Deal” that AOC and others have proposed is nothing more than a new communist manifesto. It’s not Democratic or any other kind of socialism. It’s straight-up communism. And what does their economic program have to do with global warming? Absolutely nothing. read more

New Democrats Will Solve Our Problems

from the American Thinker:

The Progressives and Your Money

First things first. They’re no longer Democrats. “Democrats” are so yesterday, so obsolete, so unrepresentative of current liberal thought. JFK was a Democrat and he believed in a strong military, cutting taxes and confronting worldwide evil from an absolutist — not relative — vantage point. That’s all so wrong. We need a more enlightened approach, one that benefits from the knowledge we’ve gained in the 60 years since JFK. We’re progressed so far. That’s it — we’ll call ourselves Progressives. read more

WND Exclusive – The New left is Just Plagiarizing the Old

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

For years, we on the right have been searching for a term that adequately identifies the far left, or radical left. We see it every year; they lurch further toward the radical, and their political class must follow or get steamrolled.

So is there a term that is further left than the “far” left, or the “radical” left? If there isn’t currently, perhaps we should begin crafting one – and sooner than later. I say this because the current crop of leftists appear to be far afield from where they were and how they presented themselves just a decade ago or less.

In 2008, the Democratic Party campaign platform stated that, “we cannot continue to allow people to enter the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked,” and that those who “enter our country’s borders illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law.” read more

Mad Money Calls Out Fauxahontas

from NewsBusters:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., defended her call for an “ultra-millionaires” annual wealth tax as “how the system is supposed to operate,” and “part of the social contract” of America in a CNBC interview.

Wait, since when did wealth redistribution and punishing the wealthiest by instituting a new tax to take $2.75 trillion away from them for what they’ve accumulated become part of the “social contract” of the U.S.? read more

Jack up the Minimum Wage in NYC

This is the progressive left. Did we ever think they would be satisfied with $15 per hour?

from the American Spectator:

Fifteen-dollar-an-hour minimum wage is so yesterday.

In an op-ed in the New York Times, Ginia Bellafante points to a study showing that a $33-per-hour minimum wage might be needed in New York City, saying that’s the amount necessary — about $69,000 extrapolated out over a year’s income — for a single parent with two school-aged children to live a decent quality of life in the Big Apple.

“In many, many cases, a $15 hourly wage will not bring a family, or even a single person, to an adequate living standard,” she wrote. “That hardly means the fight was worthless; it just means the war is ongoing.” read more

WND Exclusive – GOV. CUOMO BEGINS MARCH TOWARD INFANTICIDE

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

One thing we know about progressive ideas is that they must always advance. It’s the very meaning of progress – it must always be moving forward, although the “forward” part is debatable.

And so it is with progressive legislation, or regulation. Progressive legislation passed or regulations mandated never begin as onerous as the author envisions, or first reveals.

The eventuality is always worse than its commencement. This is the progressive modus operandi. American history is replete with examples of this progress, like Social Security, welfare, unemployment insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. read more

Three Political Philosophies that Don’t Work

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

On January 3, 2019, Fox News commentator, Tucker Carlson took to the airwaves. His 15 minute monologue created quite a stir amongst both the left and right.

It caused enough of a stir that everyone from New York Times opinion columnist, Ross Douthat, to National Review’s David French weighed in on it.

Please review Douthat’s column here, and French’s here.

Putting aside Carlson’s comments regarding Mitt Romney’s excoriating of Donald Trump – Tucker makes some good and not-so-good points, as do those who critiqued him.

Tongue-in-cheek, Carlson says that, “The overriding goal for America is more prosperity, meaning cheaper consumer goods. But is that still true?”

Well, for most, that’s never been true. He correctly explains that Americans just want to be happy, satisfied and fulfilled with, “Dignity. Purpose. Self-control. Independence. Above all, deep relationships with other people.” read more
