Judge Orders Trump Administration to Facilitate Illegal Immigrant’s Abortion

A federal judge nominated by Barack Obama today ordered the Trump Administration to allow an undocumented teenage girl in the state of Texas to have an abortion that could be funded partly at taxpayer expense.

Another judge previously refused to step into the controversial abortion case involving a shelter that is encouraging a 17 year old immigrant girl here illegally to choose life for her unborn baby instead of having an abortion. The ACLU, which filed a restraining order on the girl’s behalf, claims a new federal government policy is blocking the girl from getting the abortion that she wants.—More….

Catholic Bishop: You Can’t be Catholic and Support Abortion

From our Catholic readers around the world, but especially in the United States, one of the biggest complaints we often hear is that fellow Catholics do not follow the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church. Politicians who are Catholic but support abortion produce significant anger from readers.

And one of the biggest requests we receive frequently here at LifeNews.com from pro-life readers is a request for Catholic leaders to speak out more strongly about those Catholics who do not adhere to those pro-life teachings. One Catholic bishop in England is doing just that — and made it abundantly clear that Catholics cannot be Catholic and less they are pro-life on abortion.—More…

Why won’t feminists defend Dana Loesch? They only care about ideology, not equality

Recently on Twitter, Dana Loesch, (television host for The Blaze and spokesperson for the National Rifle Association), announced she was moving due to threats from gun control advocates. Madmen have hunted down her private cell phone number and home address, threatened her with death and rape threats, and she’s had to work with her children’s school to ensure their safety as well.

The entire thread is worth reading. Loesch points out the feminist movement, whose banner is “equality,” remains silent when it comes to the equal rights of a conservative woman promoting her Second Amendment rights:—More…

Nigel Farage: ‘Revolution Is Rolling’ as Europe Shifts to the Right

“The revolution is rolling,” the former leader of the United Kingdom’s Independence Party said Wednesday on Fox Business Network.—More…

Quebec passes bill requiring citizens to uncover faces while giving, receiving public services

Quebec has adopted a law that will force people to show their faces when taking the bus or borrowing a book from the library, pushing ahead with legislation that is being criticized for targeting Muslim Canadian women.

Bill 62, which the Justice Minister described as a North American first, requires one’s face to be uncovered when giving or receiving public services. The law marks the outcome of a contentious, decade-long debate about the place of religious minorities in Quebec.— More…

Harvey Weinstein’s Victims Were Collateral Damage in the Left’s Culture War

In the spring of his final year as a movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein was doing what he always did. Or rather what he always did in public view: as opposed to what he has been accused of doing in hotel rooms and deserted office storage rooms. He was fighting a ratings war over a movie with adult content.

The movie was 3 Generations. It had been made two years earlier to cash in on the transgender boom.  Back then it was called About Ray. But the reviews were bad and the movie was pulled a few days before it was supposed to be released. What do you do with a bad politically correct movie that you paid $6 million for? You start a culture war. And that’s exactly what Harvey Weinstein did.

NBC reporter on MSNBC: Democrat support for Nancy Pelosi falling apart ahead of 2018

In 2018, Democrats will need to flip 24 seats to retake control of the House of Representatives. Anything can happen in a year but, as it stands, it looks like that’s an extremely tall order.  The odds are Republicans will retain control.

Trump right to oppose “bipartisan” healthcare proposal

Well, the “bipartisan” health care deal is pretty much what you would expect when the Republican involved is Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tennessee). Democrats get to spend more money and keep Obamacare intact while Republicans get something only if they fool themselves into thinking they get something. President Trump initially said he would support the deal, but now appears to have changed his mind after learning the details.

The deal—negotiated by Alexander and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Washington)—restores the cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies that President Trump discontinued last week. President Obama had instituted the payments even though they were unconstitutional. Under Obamacare, Congress must authorize the payments. Congress never did, so, like any good lefty, Obama said, “Screw the Constitution.” When Trump did the right thing last week, liberals threw a hissy fit and Democratic State Attorney Generals filed suit to restore the payments. (Yeah, good luck with that.) In addition to appropriating money for the cost-sharing payments, the proposals also spends $100 million for Obamacare outreach.

 


Barry Soetoro, Posing as Obama, Now Running Hollywood Show

Barry Soetoro—aka Barack Hussein Obama—is Hollywood’s latest, big new film producer.

No doubt about it.

Harvey Weinstein and brother Bob have been drummed out of the film producing business courtesy of sexual harassment allegations still surfacing today.

Kaepernick’s grievance against NFL owners is actually all about . . . Donald Trump?

When I first heard Colin Kaepernick was filing a collusion grievance against NFL owners because none of them have signed him this year, I figured his case seemed pretty weak on the surface but I wondered if maybe his camp had something they considered evidence that might give them a reason to think they could win. Phone transcripts, perhaps, of the Raiders calling the Steelers and the Chiefs calling the Eagles, where all of them agree not to touch Kap because he needs to be punished for his anti-American apostasy.

That seems highly implausible, but if it did exist and you had it, I guess I can see why you might give the grievance a shot.

Fox reporter Peter Doocy asks McCain if he’s just opposing to hurt Trump - McCain goes ballistic

For months, we’ve been making the case that John McCain will, most likely, oppose everything Donald Trump wants - all in an effort to “stick it” to a President he despises.  Most of the time, we trace his rage back to the “heroes who didn’t get captured” comment, but if you really dig, you can find some animosity that pre-dates the remark.  Regardless, of where it began, most of us have concluded that we’re witnessing a political grudge match.

McCain never misses an opportunity to trash Trump, and his votes have backed up that anger.

Mississippi school bans literary classic “To Kill a Mockingbird” for making people feel

You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.

These are the wise words of the fictional Atticus Finch from Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, who like poor Huckleberry Finn, has now been assigned to the ash heap of history by society’s politically correct censors.

Shocking news: Hanoi Jane says she’s not proud of America, but is proud of ‘the resistance’

I don’t suppose it’s a surprise to learn that Jane Fonda is not proud of America. A general disdain for the United States has been one of the hallmarks of her public life.  Despite what she says in this interview, you can be 100% certain that her infamous trip to Viet Nam did change her image forever - but only because it revealed exactly who and what she is.

Big time Democrat hypocrisy on display AGAIN!

Only the Democrats could get away with this. And only the Democrats would try. Because only the Democrats can rely on an utterly corrupt, complicit media to cover for them. Current Virginia Lieutenant Governor and Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam recently removed a photo of Justin Fairfax, his black running mate, and all reference to him, in brochures handed out in Northern Virginia.

According to Erick Erickson of The Resurgent, this was done because Fairfax opposes the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a project favored by the Laborers’ International Union of North America. Given that Democrats would literally have to fold without union support, this guy has done the unthinkable to make them happy.


More Serial Human Rights Abusers Elected to UN Human Rights Council

The United Nations General Assembly on Monday elected 15 member states to the UN Human Rights Council for the 2018-2020 term, including such notorious human rights abusers as Qatar, Angola, Pakistan, Nigeria, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Member states considered eligible for membership on the Human Rights Council are theoretically supposed to be able to demonstrate their commitment to the highest standards of human rights and their full cooperation with all UN mechanisms, including the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), Special Procedures and treaty bodies and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights. These countries fall woefully short of such standards.

George Soros’ Open Society Foundations just became the second largest in the U.S.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that George Soros has donated $18 billion of his personal wealth to his Open Society Foundations. This move will make OSF the second largest in the nation, only exceeded by the foundation formed by Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates. Soros has already made a name for himself in the non-profit world by supporting and sometimes creating practically every left-wing organization in the nation. We can only imagine what evil this portends for our future.

Foundation investment committee member Bill Ford said, “It’s an ongoing process of migration from a hedge fund toward a pool of capital deployed to support a foundation over the long term.”


Their Just Deserts

French physicist Blaise Pascal once wrote, “This letter is long because I hadn’t the time to make it short.”

Even though Pascal’s comment seems contradictory, it isn’t, as demonstrated in great short stories that have withstood the test of time by delivering essential elements — time, place, setting, plot, and characters — in a minimum of words.

Longtime Clinton confidant says she warned three top Democratic operatives about Harvey Weinstein

Hollywood and Washington, D.C. may be on different coasts, but it always seemed unlikely that word of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct never penetrated the Democratic political circles in which he traveled for decades. Indeed, on Wednesday, one entertainment industry insider with close ties to the Clinton family confirmed she warned several powerful party operatives about the producer’s reputation.

Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, whose friendship with the Clintons dates back to the 1980s, penned an insightful essay for The Hollywood Reporter in which she revealed having warned three “top-level Democratic operatives” not to let Weinstein host fundraisers. Though the bulk of Bloodworth-Thomason’s essay focuses on her experiences with sexual harassment in Hollywood, she addressed the industry’s rush to proclaim ignorance after allegations about Weinstein finally surfaced in the New York Times nearly two weeks ago.—More…
