Murder Incorporated

Do you get a bit weepy when Sarah McLachlan sings “In The Arms of The Angels” alongside images of abused, sickly, and starving pets? Are you, like me, excited about the prospect of “life” – bacterial or microbial – being found on Mars, or elsewhere in our solar system? Are you vegan, or actively concerned about the care and treatment of livestock slated for human consumption? If you answered yes, then you probably think yourself a caring person with a functioning heart, like me. Now….with that said…..are you also a supporter of Planned Parenthood and unlimited access to abortion at any time….perhaps on the basis of “a woman’s right to choose” what happens to “nothing but a clump of cells”? If so, no matter how compassionate you may think yourself….you are actually a monster.

Since 1973, according to the Guttmacher Institute (AGI) and the CDC, more than 53 million legal abortions have taken place in the United States. As of 2014, 19% of pregnancies in the U.S. ended in abortion. That’s roughly 1 out of 5. The place that does the most business for abortion providers in the U.S. is ( shockingly ) Washington, D.C., where – as of 2014 – 38% of pregnancies ended in abortion. That’s roughly 4 out of 10, in case you are a recent college graduate. Again, according to AGI and the CDC, 86% of abortions are undertaken by unmarried women. In the same report, women with multiple abortions accounted for 35% of the 2015 total. 80,000 of the 913,000 abortions performed in 2015 in the U.S., were given to women who had 3 or more procedures previously. Huh. That’s weird. That sounds like the most horrible form of birth control ever. And just think, about 14% of all of these abortions were paid for by public funds, or in other words, your money.

If those numbers weren’t shocking and saddening enough, they don’t reflect the recent law passed in New York….a law celebrated by Governor Andrew Cuomo – you know, the brother of CNN “journalist” Chris Cuomo –  both sons of lifelong Democrat politician Mario Cuomo – and given a standing ovation by the state legislature. The cause for the applause and flowery language about “women’s rights being upheld in the age of Trump”? Because now, in NY, you can have an abortion for any reason up to 6 months, and from 6 months up until the due date you can have an abortion for any “health reason”…..including being nervous, anxious, or depressed. The best part of this super-empowering law? If the baby survives the procedure, now clinic workers can legally kill it. Oh, I say “clinic workers” because another part of the law is that an actual doctor isn’t required…..almost any person employed at the place can now perform an abortion.

For some progressive politicians, like Virginia’s Governor Ralph Northam, the New York law doesn’t go far enough. He thinks that you should be able to deliver a healthy baby and “make it comfortable” for awhile while the woman and her physician decide whether or not to kill it. After normal birth. Sound crazy? Well, let him explain himself:

Still not sold? Well, at least we’re not leaving the little tykes to die of exposure on the side of a mountain when they are unwanted, like the ancient Spartans did, right? We’re not barbarians….barbarians would use tongs to dismember recognizable little babies in the womb, pull out the pieces, and then sell them. Oh wait…..oops…that’s exactly what we’re doing.

Let’s be clear: I am not saying that victims of rape and incest shouldn’t have “reproductive choice”. I’m also not saying that women who’s lives are threatened by a problem pregnancy, or those pregnant with a catastrophically disabled child, shouldn’t have abortion as an option. What I am saying is that if you’re ok with the current justification for, and rate of, abortion…..and the standards with which it is implemented, then you seriously need to reconsider what guides your moral compass, if you have one.

Former Planned Parenthood clinic-director Abby Johnson ( check her story at AbbyJohnson.org ), has extensively detailed the agenda of the industry she was once employed by : everything from monthly quotas to the absence of any offered prenatal care….all the way up to performing so may abortions per day that the sterilizing auto-clave couldn’t keep up – requiring the use of dish soap to wash instruments between customers. Does that sound empowering to you?

It used to be the old mantra of “safe, legal, and rare”. Now it has become “anytime, everytime, and as often as possible”. Welcome to State-sanctioned infanticide, brought to you by the Progressive Democrat party, and endorsed and cheered on by millions of your neighbors.

But down with Drumph and stuff.

Dumb And Dumber

  Let’s get something out-of-the-way before I begin today’s column: If you are expecting commentary, or a defense of, the Helsinki Summit between Trump and Putin, you are about to be disappointed. First, what took place between the leaders of the U.S. and the Russian Federation was a standard meeting between world powers, and nothing spectacular took place.  Second, the “Russia Narrative” is fantasy, and nothing but an excuse for the loss of a poor candidate with a poor message. What started as a ruse to cover the criminality of the Obama administration quickly became the mechanism for the removal of a duly elected President by the Unelected Progressive Bureaucracy. Frankly, I have grown tired of arguing with  idiots about this issue, and if you still believe in the Russia fallacy – that a defeated nation with the economy of Italy, that two previous administrations ignored while it invaded Georgia and then Crimea, and that could not (outside of nukes ) pose any military threat to the U.S ( For example, the United States has 10 active aircraft carriers and Russia has one )  – all with China is on the march – then I have no desire to attempt to reverse your intellectual failings and incredible ignorance. Feel free to keep calling for nuclear war over Clinton campaign opposition-research if it floats your boat.

Russia’s Single Carrier Belching Smoke

Moving on, the Democrat party in the United States is drastically swinging left in a way that borders on insanity. I know, after eight years of the most incompetent, divisive, and corrupt administration ever undertaken….who would have thought that the political left could get crazier? Well, they are.  28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently won her Democrat primary against 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley. She’s a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, what I call a “Dazi”, and she’s like, super cool and stuff. In her recent appearance on PBS’s “Firing Line”, she was asked a series of innocent and simple questions. One query to Ocasio-Cortez was a request for clarification about her repeated assertions regarding  “the situation in occupied Palestine” and what she thought that meant. She could neither define what “occupied Palestine” was, nor how it related to geopolitics. She literally sat there looking ( and being ) stupid. Her answer was ” I’m no expert….”, even though in college she majored in international relations. Okay, so she’s dumb about foreign policy, so what?

“Dazi” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

  ( Don’t take my word for it…..the link below will take you to the interview )

Well, next she went on to opine that “capitalism hasn’t always existed….and it won’t always”. I’m not sure what economic system Ocasio-Cortez thinks has created the most luxurious standard of living ever recorded in human history…….but I know, and it’s capitalism.  She then claimed that we have “unrestricted capitalism”, and spat out some Obama-like gibberish about how evil that is. Wow. Maybe she’s confused about what the word “unrestricted” means. So she’s dumb about the economy too (even though she majored in that as well), so what?

Ocasio-Cortez was then asked about her take on the current state of the economy. Easy, right? Nope. She went on to say that the low unemployment numbers are a ruse, and the truth was that it’s only because “people are working two jobs…..and 60, 70, 80 hours a week, so…”. Uh…that’s not how unemployment is calculated. Not even close. This is when I realized that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez literally knows nothing. A college graduate with a degree in economics and international relations, yet she knows absolutely nothing about either subject. How could someone who is, no offense Alexandria, this demonstrably stupid gain enough votes to win her primary? Oh, I know….. it’s because the Left is made up of babies in adult bodies, who loudly cry and have tantrums without ever really knowing anything about anything. This is what happens when someone thinks history started the day they were born, and sadly that’s a lot of folks.

If you think Ocasio-Cortez’s victory is a fluke, I have bad news for you. She’ll probably go on to win, and between now and then we are going to see more people like her. Dumb ideas and even dumber agendas. I hope you’re not tired of hearing about “social justice”, “gender equality”, “patriarchy”, “LGBTQQPP+”, and “trans issues”, because that’s what has now consumed progressive-left politics. If you don’t believe me, you can tune in to her upcoming appearance at the Facebook-sponsored  2018 Netroots Nation conference August 2-4th……….where the biggest issues of the New Left will be discussed…..namely “menstrual equality”. I’m not joking. Sigh.
