NYC’s tanning salons inspected more regularly than abortion clinics

richards

NY Post: The state Health Department is failing to inspect many of New York’s abortion clinics — with some facilities escaping scrutiny for more than a decade, bombshell documents obtained by The Post reveal.

Health inspectors regulate 25 diagnostic and treatment clinics and surgery centers that provide abortion services — though pro-choice advocates say there are 225 abortion service providers in New York state.

Eight of the 25 clinics were never inspected over the 2000-12 span, five were inspected just once, and eight were inspected only twice or three times — meaning once every four or six years.

A total of just 45 inspections were conducted at all 25 facilities during the 12-year period.

By comparison, city eateries are inspected every year and graded, while a new law requires tanning salons to undergo inspections at least once every other year.

Meanwhile, state officials — citing prior threats and violence against abortion providers — refused to identify the names and locations of the clinics it did inspect.

Health officials acknowledged the dearth of inspections, in response to a Freedom of Information lawsuit filed by Chiaroscuro Foundation, a conservative think tank that works to reduce abortions.

Chiaroscuro’s executive director, Greg Pfundstein, sought the information following a scandal in Philadelphia, where abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell was convicted of three counts of murder for cutting delivered babies’ spines with scissors and 21 counts of performing late-term abortions and other medical violations.

Gosnell’s clinic hadn’t been checked for 15 years before inspectors raided his facility in an unrelated prescription investigation and stumbled upon a house of horrors.

In New York City, 73,815 pregnancies were aborted in 2012. There were over 130,000 abortions statewide.

New York has one of the highest abortion rates in the country. More oversight is needed. Abortion clinics are as much a public concern as tanning salons. There should be regular inspections of all licensed abortion clinics,” Pfundstein said. “Right now, New York is only inspecting a fraction of abortion providers, and only very rarely. It’s hard to know which facilities are safe.”

In response to the legal request, the state Health Department noted it inspects only a limited number of abortion providers. And the facilities it does inspect are checked infrequently, according to the data it provided.

“Some facilities are not required to have ‘abortion services’ in their operating certificates in order to perform abortions,” Health Department records-access official Elizabeth Sullivan wrote in a letter, explaining why other abortion providers are not inspected.

“The Department does not otherwise maintain a list of every Article 28 facility that performs abortions.”

She said the agency only took legal action against one abortion clinic over 12 years. It provided the plaintiff the court papers but redacted the names, citing safety concerns.

The Health Department declined further comment.

Warren Buffet gives $millions for abortions

Don’t be fooled by his “aw-shucks I’m-just-a-regular-guy” folksy image.

Behind the smiling mask of Warren Buffet is a rabid pro-abort who funnels TENS OF MILLIONS of dollars into killing the unborn each year.

Warren BuffetBetsy Woodruff writes for The National Review, March 5, 2014, that documents from Buffet’s charitable organization and abortion-providing groups show that millions of dollars from the fortune of legendary investor Warren Buffett are going to pay for abortions.

Buffet, whose preternatural investing success has made him the fourth richest person in the world, is often described as folksy. But he’s also a longtime population-control buff, and his foundation pours tens of millions of dollars into abortion-funding work every year. In 2011, his foundation gave more than $115 million to pro-choice groups, with a large portion of that going to groups that fund abortions rather than merely doing education or advocacy.

National Review Online previously reported on the growing presence of charities that help women pay for abortions. Groups like the Lilith Fund have drawn increasing national attention, thanks in part to the efforts of pro-choice celebrities like Zach Galifianakis and Sarah Silverman. Buffett is not widely known as an abortion advocate, but his contributions dwarf those of better-known members of the pro-choice movement.

Here’s how: The Buffett Foundation — renamed the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation (STBF) in 2004 after Buffett’s wife’s death — exists as a medium for the investor’s charitable giving.

But David Callahan writes for Inside Philanthropy that Buffett’s STBF foundation is remarkably opaque — “a case study in non-transparency.” Although STBF ranked number five in total giving in 2012 of $367.1 million, which put it well ahead of such brand name foundations as Robert Wood Johnson, Kellogg, OSF, Mellon, and Packard, STBF’s website focuses only on education giving while omitting huge key funding areas.  If you try calling the foundation, you get a message saying that nobody is there and that they don’t accept proposals, have funding guidelines, or publish an annual report.

Despite the opacity, it’s clear the foundation pours millions into pro-choice organizations, with a special focus on funding for abortions. In addition to funding general women’s health organizations and some political groups, Buffett gives generously to organizations that use their funds specifically to help women pay for abortions. For example:

  • STBF gave more than $21 million in 2010 to the National Abortion Federation (NAF) Hotline Fund, one of America’s more prominent national abortion funds. That organization’s 990 in 2012 (the latest year accessible) says its mission is “to ensure that women have the information and resources they need to access quality abortion care.” In 2012, the NAF Hotline’s annual revenue was a little more than $26 million, per GuideStar, which means almost all of its annual revenue came from Buffett’s foundation.
  • The Buffett Foundation’s 990 for 2012 wasn’t available. But in 2011, it gave or pledged more than $40 million to Planned Parenthood, which provides abortions as part of its range of services.
  • STBF also gave more than $1 million to the Abortion Access Project and many other pro-abortion groups.
  • In 2011, Buffett also gave $750,000 to the National Network of Abortion Funds, which supports state and local abortion funds.
  • Buffett’s foundation has also helped organizations seeking to increase abortion access overseas, including:
    • $16 million to DKT International, which works to expand abortion access in India, Ethiopia, Mozambique, and other countries. DKT’s website says it “provided 1.2 million safe abortion doses” in 2013.
    • More than $9.4 million from 2009 to 2011 to Gynuity Health Projects, which works to expand abortion access in developing countries. Its website discusses its efforts to lower the cost of medical abortions and “to help support introduction of this promising new technology [mifepristone, an abortifacient].”

The above is a tiny slice of the support Buffett directs to organizations seeking to make abortion cheaper, more accessible, and less politically toxic. Buffett is consistently mum on abortion issues; he doesn’t put his mouth where his money is. But a look at his charitable giving suggests the pro-abortion movement has no better ally than the folksy billionaire.

And as further evidence, a pro-abort woman named Tracy Weitz recently joined the Buffet Foundation.

California Catholic Daily reports that Tracy Weitz was just hired by the Buffett Foundation in Omaha, Nebraska. Weitz, while at the Bixby Global Reproductive Health Center at the University of  California, San Francisco, had orchestrated the medical research project which ended in legalizing non-physician abortions in California.

If Democrats Had Their Way…

detroit

If Democrats Had Their Way…

Remember New Coke? It was a dismal failure and the company scrapped it. How about three slice toasters? They were supposed to be the rage once, too. But nobody bought them and they disappeared into the dustbin of history.

That’s how life works in the private sector. If people don’t buy and the product doesn’t deliver, it disappears. Companies and individuals are forced to develop winning strategies in order to survive. If not, they perish.

The policies of the Democratic Party are not like that. The policies of the Democratic Party — high taxes, exorbitant union contracts and pensions, excessive government regulation, gun control, dysfunctional schools, etc. — continue to produce one failed program after another, yet they are fully supported by an average of 52% of the voting public. If they operated in the private sector, they would be forced into bankruptcy. However, because they are funded by our tax dollars, they have a never-ending spigot of cash flowing into their coffers. In essence, they are rewarded for failing.

Detroit is a city that has been under complete Democratic control for over forty years. And when I say complete, I mean complete. Every official, every policy, every decision affecting Detroit has come 100% from the Democratic Party and their supporters. The result? Bankruptcy.

Detroit is $2.5 billion in debt. That’s billion, with a “b”. Thousands of homes, buildings, and businesses are vacant and abandoned, and two thirds of the city’s street lights do not work.

Detroit is America’s most dangerous city with a violent crime rate five times higher than the national average. It’s the murder capital of the country, and — because it’s under Democratic control — Detroit has strict gun control laws.

In short, Detroit is a hellhole. A man-made, Democratic-Party-created hellhole. And it’s exactly what all of America would look like if Democrats had their way.

Detroit is not an aberration. It is a direct result of Democratic leadership and how applying the principles of the Democratic Party actually play out in real life. It’s as simple as 1 + 1 = 2. You do this action, you get this result.

If Detroit shows all of us the natural consequence of what happens when the Democratic Party gets its way, why do people support it? Why do tens of millions of Americans continue to vote for Democrats? The answer, I believe, consists of five distinct elements within the Democratic Party.

In the first group are the hardcore socialists and communists that form the leadership and financial backing of the Democratic Party. These are the folks that actually hate America and want to destroy it. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/03/22/99549/). They are the corrupt union leaders, the financial donors, the advisors, the radical college professors and teachers, the leaders of various “equality” groups and causes, the militant feminists, the Islamic extremists, education officials and administrators, and the actual politicians themselves. I estimate their numbers to comprise 5% of less of the Democratic Party.

To this first group, Detroit is a shining example of how they would like all of America to be. Many of them are atheists, or outright satanists, and they hate not only America, but also Christianity, because they see Christians as the primary roadblock that keeps them from turning America into a Communist dictatorship. Death, murder, kidnapping, and rape mean nothing to them if it helps to accomplish their objective.

The second group is big business and union members. The majority of those in this group do not hate America, however they can develop intense hatred toward any individual or group that threatens their current financial status. They support the Democratic Party because it pays.

For big business, that means bailouts, favorable loans, taxpayer subsidies, and government regulation to create monopolies and eliminate competition. You know who I’m talking about: Hollywood, Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, GE, Wall Street, owners of professional sports teams, etc.

For union members, it means maintaining their high salaries, pensions, insurance, and paid holidays. You’ll find many teachers in this group. All together, this second group comprises about 20% of the Democratic Party. They vote for their own personal gain, regardless of how much it hurts their country or their fellow citizens.

The third group consists of the media. I estimate them to comprise 5% or less of the Democratic Party. Like the first group, many of them are hardcore socialists and communists who also hate America, but their hatred is cloaked with a thinly disguised intellectual disdain. They consider themselves smarter than everyone else. Though they are intelligent, they suffer from a total lack of wisdom. If their intellectual superiority is threatened, they can revert to most violent and animalistic of natures, all condoned through intellectual justification.

This third group — the media — do everything they can to obscure reality in order to confuse and indoctrinate the fourth group: Useful Idiots.

“Useful idiot” sounds like a harsh term, but it was actually coined by the Left to describe many of their followers. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/12/29/are-you-a-useful-idiot/)

It saddens me to say that I have many friends, acquaintances, and co-workers in this group. They are nice people. Many of them would give you the shirt of their back, or rush to your aid at the first sign of an emergency. Sadly, they just don’t know very much about history or politics.

Useful idiots have been dumbed down at school and at home. Now in their 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, and beyond, they continue to believe everything they’re told by the mainstream media. They have been exposed to alternate information only in the form of ridicule. Many of them are so busy working, earning a living, raising families, paying bills, and looking for love that they just don’t have time to read and educate themselves.

I was in the position of not having time to read myself until I was laid off a couple of years ago and actually had time to research what was happening in the country. That’s when I discovered this site, Commieblaster, Moral Matters, and many more.

In this group you will also find many females who have been taught to accept abortion and feminism, and many males who accept abortion and feminism as a means to seduce and sleep with the aforementioned females. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/11/15/an-open-letter-to-obama-supporters/) I estimate useful idiots to comprise a full 40% of the Democratic Party.

The fifth and final leg of the Democratic Party are what I call Useful Leeches. This group consists of all races and ages, and they are far worse than the useful idiots. Useful idiots actually mean well. Useful leeches are angry, bitter, resentful, and believe that the world owes them a living. They survive on government handouts: food stamps, welfare, Section-8, disability, etc., and they hate themselves because of it.

Useful leeches have no desire to improve their station in life and would love nothing better than to drag the entire country down to their level of misery and poverty. Not surprisingly, this group tends to be extremely racist and intolerant. They live in a constant state of fear.

The hardcore socialists and communists of the first and third groups love useful leeches, because they are so easily manipulated. They make excellent shock troops, and can be employed to strike fear among the population and silence critics on the right.

If there’s any hope of saving our country, it lies with the useful idiots. With extremely few exceptions, the members of the other groups are not going to change. Useful idiots CAN change if they are approached and educated correctly. A friendly conversation here, a book or article passed along there, and slowly but surely the tide can be turned.

If we can begin to sway even 5-10% of the useful idiots, we can tilt the balance of our country back to its Constitutional foundation. We can’t look to others to do this. The work is ours. The future of our country rests with us.

(Thanks to my friend, Alan, for suggesting this topic.)

Sneeringly insulting leftist surprised by “strange revival of Republican America”

There have been predictions of the Republican Party’s demise since at least the 1990s. But to quote Mark Twain, “Reports of my death are much exaggerated.”

In the following essay in the Financial Times (ft.com), Edward Luce describes the GOP’s resurgence. Being a sneeringly superior leftist, Luce can’t bring himself to say it, but the GOP has none other than Barack Hussein Obama to thank for its latest revival.

I was going to critique Luce’s essay — how he conveniently leaves out the post-Sandy Hook gun control and Obama’s many scandals, especially the NSA massive surveillance that has alienated even some “Progressives”. But I decided against it after reading FT readers’ comments because they say it so much better than I could have. LOL

Their comments skewering Luce follows his essay.

Note: I’ve colored the good news in Luce’s essay in green, and his completely biased characterizations and insults in pink.

Enjoy!

MSM (by Anthony Freda www.AnthonyFreda.com)The strange revival of Republican America

By Edward Luce, Financial Times, March 23, 2014

For years people have predicted the Republican party’s demise. The decline of whites as a share of the US population and the spread of tolerant values, such as support for gay marriage, would gradually snuff out its appeal. Yet the Grand Old Party has a stubborn way of bouncing back. The coming midterm elections in November are unlikely to be an exception, while the Republican field for the next presidential election looks stronger than at any time since 2000. Tomorrow may indeed arrive at some point. But for the time being, today is going pretty well for the Republicans.

Take the fast-approaching congressional elections. President Barack Obama is giving everything he has in terms of fundraising to retain Democratic control of the Senate. The remainder of his presidency depends on it. Even diehard optimists doubt Democrats could regain control of the House. Yet the more Mr Obama throws at the Senate, the lower his poll numbers fall. Last week he hit a new low of 41 per cent approval versus 54 per cent disapproval. History says an unpopular president’s party loses ground in midterm elections. This year is unlikely to buck the trend.

Republicans need to win six seats to regain control of the Senate in November. Twenty-one of the 36 seats up for grabs are held by Democrats and seven of those are in states that were won by Mitt Romney in 2012. In contrast, just one of the 15 Republican seats being contested was won by Mr Obama. Embattled Democrats, such as Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, and Kay Hagan of North Carolina, are essentially running against Mr Obama. They have made it clear they do not want his visible support and they talk of Obamacare – his signature healthcare law – as though it was some kind of virus. Charlie Cook, the veteran forecaster, now gives Republicans better than 50:50 odds they will control both chambers for the rest of Mr Obama’s term. Not bad for a party in decline.

Outside Washington, Republicans are more in resurgence than in decline. In 24 states the party holds the governorship and both chambers of the legislature, against just 16 states where the Democrats are in full control. The remaining 10 are split. All told, 30 states have Republican governors.

In some cases, such as Texas, where the Hispanic minority is about to become a majority, the writing is on the wall for conservatives unless they drop their reflexive nativism. In others, such as California, where Republicans have for years done their best to alienate immigrant groups, the party faces the likelihood of being in a permanent minority. Non-whites dislike being scapegoated for society’s ills. They also tend to be more tolerant of fiscal redistribution than whites. Being a party of “small government, big prisons”, is not a recipe for long-term Republican success.

Yet there is something deep within America’s political DNA that recycles first-generation social democrats into second-generation conservatives. For most of the 20th century, Catholic Italians and Irish were a reliable Democratic voting block. Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan changed that partly by using dog whistles to play on their racial fears and partly by appealing to their upwardly mobile aspirations. There is no rule that says Latinos cannot gradually move into the Republican fold. Of America’s ethnic groups, only black and Jewish voters are unshakeably Democratic. If a Republican-controlled Congress can push through immigration reform next year, it could undo much of the sense of alienation felt by Hispanics. With barely a quarter of the Latino vote in 2012, the Republican performance can only improve.

A lot will ride on who wins in 2016. Democrats have won five of the past six presidential elections, if you include George W Bush’s Supreme court-imposed victory in 2000 (he lost on the popular vote). Demographics suggest it will become a little more difficult with each cycle for a Republican to take the White House. Moreover, conservative activists in places such as Iowa and South Carolina, which have an outsized say in choosing the party’s nominee, are moving ever further from the US mainstream. Evangelism, opposition to women’s reproductive rights and homophobia are increasingly eccentric planks of an elderly, white base. It becomes increasingly difficult for a moderate, socially tolerant Republican to win his party’s crown. Or so theory goes.

Yet there is nothing like the prospect of victory to galvanise a defeated party. In 2012 most talented Republicans sat on the sidelines. The field comprised Mr Romney plus a human freak show. It was obvious which way the winds were blowing. In contrast, most of the big names this time are either throwing their hat into the ring, or flirting with the idea. From the libertarian Rand Paul, to the moderates Rob Portman and Chris Christie, and the dynastic Jeb Bush, Republican talent clearly sniffs an opportunity.

The contrast with the Democratic field is sharp. Only Hillary Clinton is likely to run and her advisers are agonising over how to distance themselves from Mr Obama without risking his support.

As for Mr Obama, the botched rollout of his healthcare law has done more to discredit the case for activist federal government than Republicans could hope to achieve. For the time being, the hope and change wing of the Democratic party is quiescent. It will be hard for Mrs Clinton to rekindle their enthusiasm. That gives Republicans their best chance since 2000 to regain the White House. The party of yesterday may yet have a future.

Here’s a sample of brilliant comments skewering Edward Luce:

FredIsStillDead | March 24 5:04pm | Permalink

It’s not ‘nativism’ to ask that laws already on the books be enforced. I have yet to hear any mainstream Republican ask us to close our borders to legal immigration.

Biased articles like this are part of the reason Republicans are perceived as anti-non-whites. Asking for fiscal responsibility in having social programs we can afford is not anti-non-white, it’s something every family has to do when maintaining a budget.

Asking for states to have the right to be self-deterministic isn’t anti-non-white, it’s asking that the federal government allow states to govern themselves. Our country was DESIGNED to have states with different policies so that we can have many choices to examine and succeed, instead of one large federal failure like Obamacare, Social Security, Medicare, Dept. of Education, and dozens of other federal programs that supersede state’s rights under the lie of ‘the common good’.

City after city, and state after state, have shown us that government programs that restrict liberties and do nothing to reward having a job fail. Yet liberals still clamor at taking more money out of the economy and giving it to people that are better off not working at all thanks to the many social programs available.

Continuing to do the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, is madness. It’s time for a change, and the Republican party, forced to be the Tea Party, is the only one trying to stop the madness of the failed experiment called the ‘The Great Society’

“the spread of tolerant values”… “done their best to alienate immigrant groups” … “party of “small government, big prisons” … “using dog whistles to play on their racial fears” … “homophobia” … “human freak show”.

Clearly, Mr. Edward Luce is one of the tolerant and inclusive crowd, respectful of diversity and the differing viewpoints of others! Wow!

Since Obama was “elected” – G.O.P ELECTORAL GAINS:

U.S. HOUSE ~ + 56 SEATS (with 10 to 20 more this Nov.)
U.S. SENATE ~ + 2 SEATS (with 6 to 10 more this Nov.)
GOVERNORSHIPS ~ + 9 SEATS (with 5 or so more this Nov.)
STATEWIDE ELECTIVE OFFICES ~ + 750 SEATS.

Only in the sick twisted dreams of the Leftist press is the G.O.P. “dead.” The fluke of a “black” Marxist will only happen once (two terms). The fluke/advent of the “first woman” president will only happen once.

The USA is a center/right country – being hi-jacked by the Leftist media and it’s Hollywood allies. This HORRIBLE Obama economy WILL drive people back to conservative reality.

The problem in this country is the MEDIA. People like you who trash the The republicans while building up the Democrats. Your lies helped the Black Muslim become POTUS and helped pass Obamacare which with 100% certainty result in the END of medical care in this country! The media can and does control presidential elections. The vitriolic lies spewed during the month prior to the last election helped BHO win. However, since state elections are more personal and actually involve issues, it is a lot harder for the media which is primarily national to corrupt the vote!

1) I worked as a volunteer for the Howard Dean campaign in 2004, for three Democratic Congressional campaigns, and for the Obama campaign in 2008 (both primary and general). How is it that Edward Luce can discuss this subject and fail to note that the black community has suffered an unemployment rate averaging 15% for the past 5 years?? — their reward for helping to give the Democrats the White House and huge supermajorities in both the House and Senate in 2009-2010. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs executives divided up $Billions in bonuses handed to them out the back door of the US Treasury via the AIG bailout.

2) 2009-2010 was a once-in-30 years opportunity — and what happened? Nothing. Democratic leaders bleated about the Magic Filibuster –but were happy to nuke that Filibuster when it came to ensuring their buddies got patronage jobs. Just not when it came to doing anything to help the average American.
We didn’t hear about the Magic Filibuster in 2001 when 12 Democratic Senators like Ben Nelson voted to let George W Bush steal $3 Trillion out of Social Security/Medicare and hand it to the Rich as a tax cut. To create jobs — in China.

3) Hillary Clinton voted for an unnecessary war that killed more black men in 10 years than the Ku Klux Klan managed in 140 years — and she is the leading contender for the Democratic nomination in 2016.

We have 25 million unemployed Americans –and yet the Democrats’ signature initiative is a “reform” to bring in millions more of cheap foreign labor to drive down wages and take jobs.

4) In many ways, the Democrats are WORSE than the Republicans –for the same reason that a mole who claims to be your friend only to stab you in the back at the opportune moment is worse than an honest enemy who shoots at you from the front.

The Democrats give lip service to supporting the lower income 99% — in order to take charge of any populist movements for reform so that they can lead those movements over the cliff.

The Party is a fraud — it exists as a Potemkin Village that actively coopts, undermines, subverts and sabotages the very principles, values and goals it publicly proclaims. Because, like the Republicans, it works for a few hundred billionaires. It differs from the Republicans largely in having a much greater degree of deceit and hypocrisy.

And when the death cultists call the unborn mere “cancerous lumps of tissue,” ​don’t be surprised when said “lumps” are disposed of as garbage.

Sarah Knapton reports for The Telegraph, March 24, 2014, that an investigation by television Channel 4 found that the bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies in the UK were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals.

Ten National Health Service (NHS) trusts have admitted burning fetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in “waste-to-energy” plants which generate power for heat. At least 15,500 fetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone.

A “waste to energy” facility at Ipswich Hospital in Suffolk, England, operated by a private contractor, incinerated 1,101 foetal remains between 2011 and 2013. The remains were brought in from another hospital before being burned, generating energy for the hospital site.

Ipswich Hospital Trust said it was concerned to discover that foetal remains from another hospital had been incinerated on its site. A spokeswoman said: “The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust does not incinerate foetal remains” and “takes great care over foetal remains”

Note: National Health Service is the UK’s “publicly” (i.e., government) funded health care system.

Last night the UK Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr. Dan Poulter branded “totally unacceptable.” He said, “While the vast majority of hospitals are acting in the appropriate way, that must be the case for all hospitals and the Human Tissue Authority has now been asked to ensure that it acts on this issue without delay.”

Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS Medical Director, has written to all NHS trusts to tell them the practice must stop. The Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, has also written to the Human Tissue Authority to ask them make sure that guidance is clear. And the Care Quality Commission said it would investigate Channel 4′s findings.

Channel 4″s Dispatches program, which will air tonight, also found that parents who lose children in early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains.

In other words, parents who had lost their babies to miscarriage were not even informed that their babies’ little bodies were incinerated, treated as garbage and used to heat hospitals.

And to think we were horrified by the Nazis’ extermination of Jews in gas chambers and using their fat to make soap.

Just remember: This is the same national (“single payer”) healthcare system that is the dream of Obama and the Democrats for America.

Powerful image of 20-week-old baby holding dad’s fingers

Little Scotland Bansley Riles was only 20 weeks old when his mom miscarriaged.

Instead of going to a “clinic” to “take care of the situation,” Scotty’s parents decided to deliver him in the hospital.

Below is a picture of little Scotty’s hands touching the fingers of his dad, Tom Riles:

scotty

Here is Tom Riles’ letter to Scotty, posted on Riles’ Life of Dad Blog:

Dear Son,

I held you on Friday night for the first and last time ever. It was one of the saddest, proudest, most heartbreaking, and beautiful moments of my life. It was an honor to hold you.

I’m proud of you, son. Even though you only made it halfway through the pregnancy, you have left a mark on our family that will last forever. Because of you, I love my wife more than ever. Because of you, I feel a stronger connection with my kids then ever. When I hug them, I feel your presence.

Sadly, I’ll always remember the phone call last week from your mom when she told me that we lost you. I was home with your brother and sister, and I was in shock. Your pregnancy seemed to be the smoothest and most healthy one that your mom had ever had. I did my best to comfort her on the phone, and then we grieved together when you both got home. Our kids didn’t let us cry too much, though, because they kept requesting snacks, more snacks, and more snacks after that.

Usually Friday is a day that I look forward to, but not last Friday. I never shave on Fridays, but this time I did. This was the only day that I would ever hold you…I had to look my best. When we checked into the hospital at 8AM, it was a dark, dreary, and rainy day, just like the feeling in our hearts.

Your mom took medication to start the labor process, and over the next 10 hours, she showed her love and devotion to you as we neared your birth. By the way, your mom is the most incredible and beautiful person I have ever met. I’m so lucky to be with her and call her my wife.

At 8:35PM on Friday, February 28th, you were born. Even though there was no life in your beautiful body, you were full of love, heart, and courage.

Scotty, that is your older brother, Tommy, blowing out a candle celebrating your life.IMG_1010

Your mom held you, and then it was my turn. I felt both happy and devastated to be holding my second son in the palm of my hands. We cried. We told you about your brother and sister. We visualized you running through open fields somewhere, free, happy, and full of life. We sang to you. After singing the final line of “Silent Night” to you… “Sleep in heavenly peace…” we knew that it was time to say goodbye.

You were with us for way too short of a time, but you will be remembered forever. We named you Scotland Bansley Riles, and your mom and I will bring your ashes with us someday when we travel to Scotland. Usually we don’t travel with our kids (they’re a little too crazy), but we want to show you the world.

Our precious Scotty… I miss you more than I’ve ever missed anything. We love you. We will honor you. We will be better parents and people because of you. Thank you.

Love, Dad

For anybody that is going through a situation like this, know that you are not alone.

How Do I Steal From Thee? Let Me Count the Ways

After being laid off in 2012, I recently returned to work. Not having received a paycheck in two years, I had forgotten how much money the government steals from us. Comparing my gross pay to my net pay is like taking a shot to the solar plexus. I’m astounded that most Americans aren’t upset about the taxes they pay and remain blissfully ignorant of the fact that until 1913, there was no income tax.

I work hard for my money — very hard. Here’s a partial list of where MY money goes, without my consent:

Welfare recipients. About 20% actually deserve to be on welfare. The other 80% would rather stay home, watch television, and take a government check than work.

Food stamp recipients. Again, about 20% really need assistance. The others are stuffing their fat faces with money earned by hard-working Americans.

Subsidizing the so-called “arts.” You know what I’m talking about. The kind of pretentious art that no one wants or is willing to pay money for, but government supports (with my money). Have you been to a modern play lately? How about a modern opera or art gallery? Is modern sculpture your cup of tea? Well, I’m here to tell you, they all stink. Not the classics, but today’s art. Without government money, they would all dry up and blow away. And maybe then the real artists would appear. The purpose of art is to honor God and elevate men and women. What passes for art today, including popular culture, aspires to the exact opposite: dishonoring God and degrading men and women. And it’s our money that pays for it.

Subsidizing multi-million dollar sports stadiums. In case you haven’t noticed, professional football and the Olympics have turned into spectacles of satanic worship, with professional baseball and basketball not far behind. No, I’m not kidding. Our tax dollars fund the expensive, privately owned stadiums, where grown men (and some grown women) pay obscene ticket prices and allow themselves to be both surveilled by drones, as well as searched and fondled by other grown men (and some grown women), for the privilege of watching still other grown men play with a ball. Meanwhile, the billionaire owners laugh all the way to the bank.

Financing Planned Parenthood. This hijacking of our money is perhaps the most evil of all. Everyone involved with Planned Parenthood is going straight to hell, and the government is stealing our money to pay for it. Keep in mind that when the government uses our money to pay for things such as abortion, we become partially responsible. If that appalls you as much as it does me, then take a vow to only support politicians who are 100% pro-life.

Paying for Michelle Obama’s expensive dresses and Hawaiian vacations.

Financing Leftist propaganda disguised as education. The education our children our currently receiving, in which they are being taught by current Common Core curriculum that Abraham Lincoln was a liberal and a Democrat, that the Nazis were justified in much of what they did, that white Americans are racist and either got over their racism by voting for aka Obama, or held to their racism by not voting for him, is all being paid for out of our pockets. You work hard for your money, do you want it being spent teaching children revisionist history?

Paying interest to the Federal Reserve for the money they print and then lend to our country. Most readers of this site know that the Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel that has usurped the power to print money (in direct violation of the Constitution). It’s the greatest crime of this and the last century, and the source of almost every problem we face today, yet only one in every ten thousand Americans is aware of this fact, and the ones who don’t know, don’t care.

Paying the bloated salaries and pensions of union contracts.

Financing ludicrous “scientific” studies on such subjects as “Why lesbians are fat.”

Social security and disability. A massive Ponzi scheme some of us may never see. I’ve met at least ten able-bodied Americans in the last year, all fully capable of holding down a job, and every one of them collecting disability or social security.

I’d like to write more, but I can’t. I have to go to work to pay for all the scams listed above.

Feel free to add your own items to this list.

If GOP abandons Christian conservatives, the party is finished

The Issue That Could Finish Off the Republican Party

By Steve Deace
February 26, 2014

The Republican Party is hanging by a thread.

As a long overdue, all-out civil war erupts, and the grassroots mounts an unprecedented effort to unseat many party establishment figures in the primaries, nobody in the GOP seems satisfied with the status quo. The ruling class is having a typical ruling class reaction to the insurgency—sneering condescension. Meanwhile, the grassroots wants the ruling class to go at all costs. Both sides are like a dysfunctional marriage that claims they’re nobly staying together for the kids, which usually means they’re only sticking around until a better deal comes along.

The [GOP] establishment showed in last year’s Virginia governor’s race they’ll side with Democrats if they don’t get their way in the primary. At the same, as the grassroots watches GOP leadership betray them almost every day that ends in “y,” fewer and fewer of them are lamenting Mitt Romney’s loss in the 2012 election. Instead, they’re starting to think he would’ve just treated them the same shoddy way John Boehner and Ditch McConnell do, with scorn and contempt.

But while the party seems besieged on every side, there is one issue in particular that threatens to undo it once and for all. Because this issue is an existential threat to the base of the Republican Party its leadership seems to loathe every bit as much as the Left does.

That issue is the intersection of the sexual revolution and religious liberty.

Much of the Republican Party base remains God-fearing, salt-of-the-earth patriots who likely attend some form of an orthodox Judeo-Christian worship service on a regular basis. They represent the demographic that made the Reagan Revolution possible. Prior to the formation of what became known as the “Religious Right,” the GOP was largely a northeastern WASP minority party of country club Republicans. After Eisenhower left office the party wandered in the desert until Nixon upset Humphrey in 1968, but Nixon’s later fall from grace left the party circling the drain. It couldn’t even beat a peanut farmer for president.

Reagan arrived on the scene backed by national defense hawks and anti-tax/pro-growth conservatives. The national defense hawks brought the prestige, and the anti-tax/pro-growth conservatives brought the big checks, but it was the alliance of the Catholic Paul Weyrich and the evangelical Jerry Falwell into what became known as the “Moral Majority” that provided the numbers. Prior to this mobilization, evangelicals were hardly a political force. Most of them were waiting for Hal Lindsey’s prediction Jesus would return in 1988 to come true. On the other hand, Catholics rarely voted Republican. Many of them were working class immigrants. Plus, the first Catholic president had been a Democrat, and much of LBJ’s “Great Society” fell in line with other aspects of Catholic social teaching.

But then January 22nd, 1973 happened.

That was the day of the most wicked decree in the history of this constitutional republic. That was the day the U.S. Supreme Court imposed child sacrifice on America via Roe v. Wade. Confronted with the resurrected demonic spirit of Moloch, the church of Jesus Christ became politically mobilized. The Catholics first entered the fray, followed by the evangelicals. They soon became the most feared force in American politics, and the third and largest leg of Reagan’s famous “three-legged stool.” They provided the worker bees, the activists, and the sort of energy money can’t buy.

Despite the fact they were the demographic that made the Reagan Revolution possible, little by little this faction was pushed to the background by party bosses ashamed of their old school values. Nevertheless, regardless of every snub and every slight, as the years went by this was always the GOP’s most reliable vote.

Yet now that base is growing older and is being replaced by a more confrontational yet cynical generation. A generation that recoils at the mere mention of “the lesser of two evils.” A generation that wants a bigger fight than securing Republican majorities, who rarely deliver on their promises anyway. A generation that views fighting for the old alliances as akin to re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. A generation that isn’t even sure political activism makes a difference.

Several of the most podcasted evangelical preachers in America today abstain from political activism. They believe the antidote to avoid being taken advantage of by the political system (like they believe the previous generation was) is to simply preach the Gospel and let the chips fall come what may.

This is my generation.

We have been uncertain whether to build on the legacy of our forefathers, or to hit control-alt-delete. My generation is producing leaders on both sides who make a compelling case. However, the argument is fast becoming moot, for the final latch on the sexual revolution’s Pandora’s Box has been opened.

The mainstreaming of homosexuality, and the use of government coercion to make it so, provides the American Christian Church with its most ominous threat since the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. This is an issue that makes all other issues secondary, even the life issue. For if we are not free to speak truth to power in this culture we are effectively as powerless as many of our brethren meeting in secret to avoid persecution elsewhere in the world.

True, Christ promised even the gates of hell would not prevail against his church. Not even the full power and might of the U.S. government can stand in the way of God’s grace. Just look at statist China, which has the second-fastest growing Christian population in the world. Furthermore, five of the top 10 fastest growing Christian populations in the world are in Muslim countries.

While that’s obviously good news for people’s souls, and empirical evidence Christ is true to his word, government and cultural oppression of Christianity in these countries means the benefits we have enjoyed due to our Christian heritage are still nowhere to be found in these nations. Unless you actually connected with Christians in these countries, you would see very little of the fruit Christianity produces in the culture it’s truly planted in—justice, rule of law, morality, liberty, meritocracy, mercy, etc.

In Christianity the “church” is not just an institution or a building. The “church” is wherever believers are—work, home, school, public functions, etc. A Christian believes he brings God’s Holy Spirit (church) with him wherever he goes, thus he must always have a ready testimony for the hope he has in Christ. A Christian is taught he is not allowed to refuse a public proclamation of his faith in Christ, for Christ did not deny us when he publicly submitted to a brutal beating and execution on our behalf. A Christian is taught if he denies Christ in any setting – even politics or a NFL team locker room – then Christ will deny him in turn on the Day of Judgment.

A Christian is allowed to assimilate into a culture, but he cannot affirm it. He is in the culture, but not of the culture. If those pushing the sexual revolution to its most dangerous conclusions persist on their current collision course with history, they will force the Christian Church to give up all of its other various pursuits in order to defend the very integrity of its existence—even to the point of civil disobedience as we have seen previously in church history.

Similarly, if the Republican Party persists on abandoning its base of social conservatives immersed in this fight, it is essentially self-immolating for it cannot make up the numbers lost here elsewhere. The so-called “Facebook generation” of youthful nihilists Rand Paul frequently trumpets still pales in comparison to the number of Christian voters. For example, Rick Santorum got twice as many primary votes as Ron Paul did in 2012, and Newt Gingrich got almost 750,000 more. It’s going to take several decades of breeding for the church of “bread-alone” patriots to overcome their current demographic deficit, and in case you hadn’t noticed the home-schoolers are having more kids than the “legalize it” (marijuana) crowd is anyway.

If Christians cannot count on their political allies to defend their freedoms, then they will not waste their time with politics. They won’t have the luxury of doing so. There’s a reason Christians in China and the Middle East aren’t concerned with political activism. They can’t afford to be. They’re still fighting to exist.

When the government comes knocking on your door demanding you sin on its behalf or be silenced, at that moment you’re not thinking about whether you think marriage should be defined at the state level, or via a federal marriage amendment, or if government should get out of marriage altogether (a frequent and current debate among Republicans). You’re thinking about survival.

Speaking of which, the Republican Party cannot survive the loss of these voters, whether it be from a voluntary or a forced exodus. It’s no coincidence a party built on Christian ethics is strongest where the Christian church is also strongest (Republicans are twice as likely to go to church regularly as Democrats).

From the beginning the statists have used the sexual revolution as a means to first destabilize Christian moral influence in the culture, and then once that destabilization takes root to then marginalize the Christian Church from public life altogether. For the Christian Church has always been the only real threat statism has. If the Republican Party will not defend its Christian base against the statists, then it will be one of the first casualties of statism.

DE BLASIO PUSHES MORE ABORTION CLINICS AS MORE BLACK BABIES ABORTED THAN BORN IN NYC

de-Blasio-MLK-ap

Don’t you love the heroic “worm’s eye view” camera angle? So we must conclude that de Blasio is a giant among men, standing in the shadow of Dr. King? Ha ha ha. ~ TD

Despite the fact that a New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene report found that more black babies were killed by abortion in the city than were born there in 2012, Mayor Bill de Blasio has pledged to partner with Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to expand their businesses and to wipe out pro-life crisis pregnancy centers.

by DR. SUSAN BERRY

As reported by CNS News, the “Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes,” prepared by the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene,states that 31,328 African American babies were killed by abortion in 2012 in New York City, while only 24,758 black babies were born, leaving 6,570 more abortions than births in that year. The number of black babies aborted comprise 42.4 percent of the total number of abortions in the city, which numbered 73,815.

Table 1 of the report provides “total number of live births, spontaneous terminations (miscarriages), and induced terminations (abortions) for women” between the ages of 15 and 49 and of various races and boroughs of residence in New York City.

If black and Hispanic abortions are combined, the 54,245 aborted babies represent 73 percent of the total abortions in New York City in 2012. “The number of non-Hispanic white abortions was 9,704, and the number of Asian and Pacific Islander abortions was 4,493.”

In November following the election of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Breitbart News reported that de Blasio pledged to partner with Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to expand their businesses even further by providing them with “city-sponsored” space to set up shop.

De Blasio, who was elected mayor with 73 percent of the vote, also pledged to help abortionists wipe out their main competition–pro-life crisis pregnancy centers–which he referred to as “sham” clinics that do not provide “legitimate health care.”

In addition, de Blasio said that in order to ensure there is a sufficient number of abortionists to meet the high demand, he would continue to force doctors who train in city hospitals to perform abortions as a routine part of their training. The mandate is a NARAL-backed program that began under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one which de Blasio referred to as “groundbreaking.”

Furthermore, de Blasio has pledged to use Obamacare to expand state-funded abortion coverage to more New York City women.

Abortion is the Number One Killer of Black Americans

by Heidi Miller

Washington, DC (LiveActionNews) — Too Many Aborted, an initiative of the Radiance Foundation, released a short video earlier this year to expose the number-one cause of death in the black community in America. What is that cause of death? Abortion.

According to Too Many Aborted:

Abortion is a human tragedy no matter the race, but nowhere in America is it more prevalent than in the Black community, where nearly 40% of all pregnancies end in induced abortion.

The following diagram is a still from the video that shows how abortion ranks with other causes of death in the black community – there is no other cause that comes even close to it:

Ryan Bomberger, co-founder of the Radiance Foundation, could have been part of that 40% statistic. He was conceived in rape, but his mother chose to give birth and place him for adoption. Bomberger believes that no child is unwanted, but that all children are wanted by someone:
