Netflix raises rates as they see millions of new subscribers

Why are people supporting Netflix? I’m guessing the “newbs” who sign up are either unaware of the CRAP Netflix supports or they just don’t care. I wonder if new subscribers are aware of the following:

Garbage: “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” underage orgy scene on Netflix
Netflix ‘Insatiable’ TV series mocks Christianity with young girls pleading for sex with Jesus and Holy Spirit
Netflix twists ‘Anne of Green Gables’ into a queer soirée with 5 LGBT characters
Demonic: Netflix airs ‘Salute to Abortion’; Presbyterian priest blesses PP abortion clinic
Netflix at it again: Now under fire for film critics say contains child pornography

I’ve never had Netflix and never will.

Those who wish to support them and their airing of lewd and bigoted shows, have at it. Serves you right to pay more for their service.

From SF Gate: This article, Netflix raised prices because you all are signing up like crazy, originally appeared on CNET.com.

If you want to blame anyone for Netflix raising prices, look to all the newbs who are signing up in droves.

The streaming video service reported that more people signed up in the last three months of 2018 than any other quarter ever, and it predicted even more new members in the first quarter of 2019. The company added 8.84 million new paid members, according to its end-of-year financial report Thursday. That’s better than the 7.6 million it’d predicted in October.

Netflix tends to end every year on an upswing, as people on holiday breaks spend extra time streaming and those who received new gadgets as gifts start setting them up by adding services like Netflix. But this time, Netflix had already issued a couple of particularly positive signals about how business was faring.

Last month, the company said Bird Box, its post-apocalyptic thriller starring Sandra Bullock, was watched by 45 million accounts in the first seven days it was available, the best viewership for one of its original movies yet. And Tuesday, Netflix announced price hikes. The prospect of a higher monthly bill wasn’t welcome news for consumers, but investors reacted with glee, and analysts interpreted it as Netflix flexing its muscles in the middle of a hot streak.

Netflix doubled down on viewership disclosures Thursday. Bird Box has now been watched by more than 80 million member households in four weeks, the company said, adding that the movie was getting “high repeat viewing.” Looking ahead, Netflix expects You — a thriller series about a bookish stalker, which struggled to find an audience when it aired on Lifetime — to surpass 40 million households in its first four weeks, and it predicts Sex Education, a British series that Netflix is distributing globally, to reach more than 40 million in the first four weeks too.

The eternal caveat about Netflix numbers like these? They’re not independently verified. Nielsen offers some ratings for Netflix programs, which it figures with its own system of measurement that leaves out any viewing on mobile devices and doesn’t count people watching outside the US. Nielsen’s initial Bird Box numbers supported the general case that the movie was widely popular, though.

And Netflix’s definition of a view carries different meaning for a movie versus a show. Netflix counts a movie as viewed once an account watches 70 percent of the total runtime, including credits. But for shows, Netflix credits the title with a view if an account gets through 70 percent of the total runtime of a single episode.

Hollywood producer Jack Morrissey calls for killing innocent Covington boys by putting them into the woodchipper

Last Friday, January 18, 2019, a deceptively-edited video posted to social media ignited a media-driven public lynching of a group of teenage boys from the all-male Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky.

That day, the boys, wearing red Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats and sweatshirts, participated in the March for Life in Washington, DC. The video shows the boys surrounding, laughing and jeering at an elderly Native American man singing and playing a drum, who is identified as Nathan Phillips, an Omaha elder and Vietnam veteran.

Wiping away tears, Phillips said: “When I was there singing, I heard them [Covington boys] saying ‘Build that wall, build that wall’. This is indigenous lands. We’re not supposed to have walls here. We never did.” (WDBJ7.com)

The Covington boys were roundly denounced by media outlets and their hometown mayor. The Covington Catholic School, Diocese and Archdiocese issued abject apologies and condemnation of the students.

It turns out the full video of the incident shows an entirely different version of what happened.

Instead of the Covington boys harassing Phillips, it was Phillips and a group of fellow Native American activists who approached the boys who were doing school cheers. (The March for Life coincided with an Indigenous People’s Rally.)

As you can see in the video below, posted to YouTube on January 18, the day of the incident, Phillips tests several of the boys, then targets one of them (0:58 mark). Chanting, Phillips gets in the boy’s face with a metal drumstick and drum. Another Native American man tells one of the students, “White people go back to Europe. This is not your land.”

It gets worse.

One of the Covington students told the Gateway Pundit that they were waiting for their school bus and doing school cheers when four Black Israelites got belligerent with them: “We were standing there when a group of four African Americans started calling us ‘crackers’ and ‘school shooters'” and told one of the Covington students, who is black, that “we will harvest his organs” when he gets older.

The student’s narrative is confirmed by Marcus Frejo, one of the Native American protesters, who has admitted that he knew the blacks were harassing the Covington students when he and other Native American protesters joined their “African American brothers” “in solidarity.”

In a Facebook post about the incident, Frejo wrote that he was wandering around the area when:

“all of the sudden this mob of youth from the Covington catholic highschool make there onto the steps overlooking the African American brothers and start heckling them with loud maga chants and I quickly realize whats going on when the white bro next to me says their wearing maga hats and shirts. At that moment…I wanna go over there and stand in solidarity with the brothers and just sing.”

Although the full video of the incident was posted to Facebook on January 18, the truth didn’t stop Jack Morrissey, a Hollywood producer of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and two Twilight Saga movies that romanticize blood-sucking soul-less vampires, from calling for the murder of the Covington boys.

On January 19, 2019, referring to the Covington boys, Morrissey tweeted that “MAGAkids” should be killed by putting them, “screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.”

He has since locked his Twitter account so that his tweets can only be read by “confirmed followers,” but not before some netcitizen archived his tweet. Here’s a screenshot of Morrissey’s tweet:

It is not just Jack Morrissey who’s calling for violence against these innocent Covington boys.

Failed actor and ‘comedian’ Ben Hoffman, who goes by the stage name ‘Wheeler Walker Jr.,’ called for violent sexual crimes to be committed against the minor teens and even offered a reward to whoever can stalk and find the minor child and “punch him in the nuts.” (Gateway Pundit)

Yesterday, Rob Sanders, a Kentucky public prosecutor who represents the 16th Judicial Circuit of Kentucky (Kenton County), fired a warning at deranged leftists like Jack Morrissey and Ben Hoffman. He tweeted this:

Threatening acts of violence against educational institutions in Kentucky is a felony and we don’t take it lightly no matter the circumstances. #KYcrime

‘No god but Allah’ Saudi sculpture erected in World Trade Center

According to the previously classified 28 pages of the Congressional report on 9/11, Saudi Arabia was complicit in the 9/11 attack on America.

See “Congress releases classified 28 pages of 9/11 Report: It’s Saudi Arabia

So it is nothing less than a slap in the face of Americans that a sculpture bearing the emerald Saudi flag with a sword and the Arabic inscription, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet,” was recently erected on the World Trade Center grounds, a stone’s throw away from the 9/11 memorial.

Davis Richardson reports for Observer, January 9, 2019, that the 9-foot-tall sculpture, shaped to resemble a piece of candy, celebrates Saudi Arabia’s place in the G20 Summit. It was created by French sculptor Laurence Jenkell in 2011 as part of the larger “Candy Nations” installation depicting G20 countries as sugary delights, and has since been featured in over 25 countries. All 20 sculptures are currently on display outside the Oculus shopping center.

The installation was curated and installed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. In a December press release announcing the exhibit, the Port Authority said:

In its continuing efforts to transform the World Trade Center site into a dynamic space in Lower Manhattan, the Port Authority announced that beginning today it will showcase famous candy sculptures around the World Trade Center campus crafted by renowned French artist Laurence Jenkell. Each of the sculptures features flags from countries in the G20 summit, and the art work was commissioned by companies and organizations including the Chanel Foundation, the International Olympic Committee and Coca-Cola.

Sculptor Jenkell told Observer:

“I first created flag candy sculptures to celebrate mankind on an international level and pay tribute to People of the entire world. Given the unique and justified sensitivities surrounding the World Trade Center, it came to my mind to propose to remove the sculpture showcasing the flag of Saudi Arabia, or relocate it to a less sensitive location. But there is no way I can do such a thing as the flag of Saudi Arabia is entirely part of the G20 just like any other candy flag of this Candy Nations show.”

Observer points out:

Although the installation was originally created in 2011 to convey “an optimistic message of unity beneath external differences,” its placement at the World Trade Center raises questions given longstanding accusations directed toward Saudi Arabia in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. In 2003, hundreds of families affected by the 9/11 terror attacks sued the Kingdom over its alleged involvement in harboring terrorism—given that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi. Last March, a U.S. federal judge rejected Saudi Arabia’s motion to drop the charges.

Sunday Devotional: He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit

Isaiah 40:3, 5, 9-11

A voice cries out:
In the desert prepare the way of the LORD!
Make straight in the wasteland a highway for our God!

Then the glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
and all people shall see it together;
for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

Here is your God!
Here comes with power
the Lord GOD . . . .
Like a shepherd he feeds his flock;
in his arms he gathers the lambs,
carrying them in his bosom,
and leading the ewes with care.

Luke 3:15-16, 21-22

The people were filled with expectation,
and all were asking in their hearts
whether John might be the Christ.
John answered them all, saying,
“I am baptizing you with water,
but one mightier than I is coming.
I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals.
He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

After all the people had been baptized
and Jesus also had been baptized and was praying,
heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended upon him
in bodily form like a dove.
And a voice came from heaven,
“You are my beloved Son;
with you I am well pleased.”

The Baptism of our Lord by St. John the Baptist was one of several instances in the Old and New Testaments  — see also Genesis 1:26, John 5:7, and Matthew 28 — when the nature of the Triune Godhead is revealed as the vexing mystery of three Persons in one God.

But the above narrative in Luke 3 also speaks to the importance that Jesus holds for the sacrament of Baptism. Even the Son of God was Baptized, intended for sinners, before He began His public ministry.

These are the words on Baptism of His Apostle, St. Paul:

“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” -Romans 6:3-4

But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” -1 Corinthians 6:11

“For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.” -Galatians 3:27

Baptism purifies and sanctifies (makes holy) the person, making him/her a dwelling of the Holy Spirit. That means that without Baptism, a person is without the Holy Spirit and rendered defenseless against the Evil One.

I don’t know what other Christian denominations believe about baptism, but in the Catholic Church — for all its many flaws, including the terrible sins committed by its clergy — the sacrament of Baptism is an act of exorcism:

Since Baptism signifies liberation from sin and from its instigator the devil, one or more exorcisms are pronounced over the candidate. The celebrant then anoints him with the oil of catechumens, or lays his hands on him, and he explicitly renounces Satan. (#1237 of Catechism of the Catholic Church)

In this manner, through the exorcizing sacrament of Baptism, “all sins are forgiven, original sin and all personal sins, as well as all punishment for sin. In those who have been reborn nothing remains that would impede their entry into the Kingdom of God, neither Adam’s sin, nor personal sin, nor the consequences of sin, the gravest of which is separation from God.”

Moreover, through Baptimism we receive the gift of grace from the Holy Trinity — to believe in God, to love Him, and to grow in goodness. “Thus the whole organism of the Christian’s supernatural life has its roots in Baptism.”

I was baptized when I was four, but fell away from God and from the Church when I entered college, naïvely believing in a charismatic professor named Mitchell Bedford who said the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls had proved Christianity was a myth. What terrible and evil deeds college professors can do.

An agnostic, I wandered in the wilderness for decades until I was born again. This August 9 will be the 17th anniversary of my coming home. On that day in 2002, choking with tears streaming down my face, I made my big Confession for all my sins and He forgave me. I truly believe that, had I not been baptized all those many years ago and given the shield of protection, I would have been lost forever.

So if you are a Christian, don’t make the mistake of postponing the baptism of your child(ren). Baptism — clothing your child “with Christ” — is the most important thing you can and will ever do for your child.

Jesus, I love You with my whole heart, my whole soul, my whole mind, and with all my strength.

And may the peace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you,

Actor Christian Bale thanks Satan at 2019 Golden Globes

During the Golden Globes last Sunday night, actor Christian Bale was awarded Best Actor in a musical or comedy motion picture for his role in Vice, the movie about former VP Dick Cheney which National Review calls an “anti-Bush” “anti-Conservative vitriol”.

In his acceptance speech, Bale, who sported a goatee like a caricature of Mephistopheles, thanked Satan.

He said (o:30 mark): “Thank you, Satan, for giving me inspiration on how to play this role.”

Gateway Pundit reminds us of this video of Bale raging, thrashing, and abusing the director of photography on the set of Terminator Salvation in July 2008.

Comments on YouTube say the video is a re-enactment of an actual Bale audio, which is why in the video re-enactment, the face of the actor playing Bale is blurred.

After the audio of Bale’s foul-mouthed tirade at Terminator Salvation director of photography Shane Hurlbut was released onto the internet, Bale spoke to Los Angeles radio station KROQ. He apologized for his rant, calling it “inexcusable” and said he had “acted like a punk”: “I was out of order beyond belief. I make no excuses for it.” (The Guardian)

More evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School had moved to Monroe, CT before the shooting massacre

We are told that on December 14, 2012, a lone gunman, Adam Lanza, went to the Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, Connecticut, where in the space of 11 minutes, shot and killed 20 first-graders and 6 adults.

We are also told that after the massacre on January 2, 2013, SHES reopened in an empty school about 7 miles away in Monroe, CT — Chalk Hill Middle School at 375 Fan Hill Rd. — until a new swanky SHES was rebuilt with a gift of $50 million from the state of Connecticut.

$50 million for an elementary school!

It turns out that asbestos-contaminated SHES had been closed years before the alleged shooting massacre (see “Sandy Hook hoax: 6 signs that school was closed before massacre”), and Chalk Hill Middle School had been abandoned and empty since June 2011 (CTPost).

Thanks to Wolfgang Halbig, a former a law enforcement officer (U.S. Customs inspector and Florida state trooper), educator (public school coach, teacher, assistant principal and principal), and nationally-recognized school safety consultant, we have documentary evidence that SHES had moved to Chalk Hill Middle School at least months before December 2012, including invoices for food deliveries to Chalk Hill but billed to SHES.

See “Wolfgang Halbig has stunning evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School was closed months before ‘massacre

Recently, Mr. Halbig uncovered yet another piece of evidence.

All U.S. public schools and libraries are required by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to use USAC Form 471 — a form designed to help schools and libraries to list the eligible services they have ordered and estimate the annual charges for them so that the Fund Administrator can set aside sufficient support to reimburse providers for services.

Note: USAC is Universal Service Administrative Co., which has a Schools and Libraries (E-rate) Program that provides discounts to keep public school students and library patrons connected to broadband and voice services.

Below is the FCC Form 471 for the funding year 2012 of Newtown Public Schools:

Note that the schools listed are:

  1. Middle Gate Elementary School
  2. Hawley Elementary School
  3. Head O’Meadow Elementary School
  4. Newtown Middle School
  5. Central Administrative Office
  6. Sandy Hook Elementary School
  7. Newtown High School
  8. Chalk Hill Middle School

Numbers 1-7 are in the Newtown Public School District (NPSD), as you can see in this screenshot I took of the drop-down menu under “Schools” on the NPSD website:

Chalk Hill Middle School is in Monroe, CT, and is not a school in the Newtown Public School District, so why is the school listed on Newtown Public Schools’ 2012 FCC Form 471 for the funding year 2012?

The FCC Form 471 must be filed during a specific application window each year. In general, the application filing window opens about six months before the start of the funding year and is open for about two and a half months. On USAC’s ebsite, it is stated:

Deadline: The FCC Form 470 must be certified in EPC at least 28 days before the close of the FCC Form 471 filing window for the funding year in which services are requested.

EPC = E-rate Productivity Center, the account and application management portal for the Schools and Libraries (E-rate) Program.

As an example, for funding year 2019, the FCC Form 471 application filing window is from January 16, 2019 to March 27, 2019 (source), and for funding year 2018, the application filing deadline was March 22, 2018. See this screenshot from the USAC website:

That means that for funding year 2012, the deadline for Newtown Public Schools to submit its FCC Form 471 was March 2012 — 8 months before the alleged shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and nearly 9 months before SHES was temporarily moved to Chalk Hill Middle School.

So why would Newtown Public Schools, in March 2012, include Chalk Hill Middle School — a school in Monroe, CT, which had been abandoned and empty since June 2011 — in its 2012 FCC Form 471? Unless, of course, Sandy Hook Elementary School had already relocated to Chalk Hill in Monroe by March 2012, if not earlier.

All of which leads to this question:

Since SHES had moved to Chalk Hill Middle School in Monroe, CT, months, if not years, before the shooting massacre, who, then, were the students and teachers whom Lanza shot to death at SHES in Newtown, CT, on December 14, 2012?

Army stands ready to build wall when Trump declares national emergency

Tonight, at 9 p.m. EST, President Trump will speak to America about security along our border with Mexico. Trump will follow his speech with a visit to the border on Thursday.

Vice President Pence said the national address is due to congressional Demonrats’ refusal to even negotiate on funds for border wall construction, which would end the partial (25%) federal government shut-down that began December 22. President Trump asks for $5.7 billion for construction of a steel border wall.

Note that the first order of business of the House Democrats was to pass bills to fund hundreds of millions of dollars for abortion by Planned Parenthood ($100 million), international NGOs ($500 million), and the UN Population Fund ($37.5 million).

A new Economist/YouGov survey, conducted Dec. 30-Jan. 1, found that:

  • A vast majority (86%) of Americans say illegal immigration is a problem, including 97% of Republicans, 82% of independents, and 83% of Democrats.
  • Only 7% of Americans think illegal immigration is “not a problem”, including 2% of Republicans, 7% of independents, and 12% of Democrats.
  • The remaining 6% of Americans are not sure if illegal immigration is a problem or not.

It is expected that in his national address, President Trump will declare a national emergency to build and pay for the wall. Indeed, border insecurity is a national emergency:

  • In fiscal 2017, as many as 3,755 known or suspected terrorists entered the U.S.
  • In fiscal 2018, which ended on Sept. 30, at the southern border:
    • Customs and Border Protection agents caught 17,000 adults who had criminal records.
    • Immigration and Customs Enforcement apprehended 6,000 members of gangs, including the violent MS-13.
    • A 73% increase in fentanyl, one of the deadliest drugs, totaling 2,400 pounds.
    • A 38% increase in methamphetamine.
    • A 38% increase in heroin.
    • 50 migrants a day required medical treatment.
    • 31% of female migrants said they were sexually assaulted on the journey to the U.S. (The Daily Signal)

And when/if President Trump declares border security is a national emergency, the U.S. Army will be the primary contractor to build the wall.

InfoWars reports that two days ago, on Sunday, January 6, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) sent a letter to Democratic House committee chairs, informing them that the Customs and Border Protection agency is coordinating with the army to fulfill President Trump’s goal of securing the border with a steel wall.

The letter also says that President Trump’s request for $5.7 billion would fund construction of approximately 234 miles of a steel border wall, and several other areas pertaining to border security, including more border patrol personnel, humanitarian supplies, and technology resources. (Read the letter on ScribD, here.)

Yesterday, a White House official said, “If the president declares a national emergency, the Army Corps of Engineers will kick into high gear. They’re already handing out contracts, and that would speed up a lot.”

In fact, the Army Corps of Engineers had begun soliciting bids in mid-2017 for companies to produce “a mix of border fence, border wall, border patrol roads, border access roads, border lights, border gates (for access to border monuments, for maintenance, and for Border Patrol operational use), border drainage improvements, levee walls, and other miscellaneous improvements, repairs, and alterations.” (Daily Mail)

Harry Reid is dying of pancreatic cancer

Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) was Senate Majority Leader from 2007 to 2015 — credited with pushing Obamacare into law — and Senate Minority Leader from January 3, 2015 to January 3, 2017, when he retired from the U.S. Senate.

Remember Reid’s strange injuries?

On May 14, 2018, Reid underwent surgery after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

A source told the Nevada Independent: “They caught it early. The doctors believe it went well, and he is expected to make a full recovery.” According to Roll Call, Reid’s family put out this statement:

Today, Former Democratic Leader Harry Reid underwent surgery at Johns Hopkins Cancer Center to remove a tumor from his pancreas. His doctors caught the problem early during a routine screening and his surgeons are confident that the surgery was a success and that the prognosis for his recovery is good. He will undergo chemotherapy as the next step in his treatment. He is now out of surgery, in good spirits and resting with his family. He is grateful to his highly skilled team of doctors and to all who have sent and continue to send their love and support,” the statement said.

However, reporting for the New York Times Magazine on Jan. 2, 2019, Mark Leibovich writes:

Reid, who is 79, does not have long to live. I hate to be so abrupt about this….

I had planned to visit Reid, who had not granted an interview since his cancer diagnosis, in November, but he put me off, saying he felt too weak. People close to him were saying that he had months left, if not weeks….

Reid’s health, even before the cancer diagnosis, was a factor in opting not to seek re-election for a sixth Senate term in 2016. Over the last few months, he has had chemotherapy and two back surgeries….

Reid had dismissed Trump as a “spoiled brat,” a “con man” and a “human leech.”… In 2016, he dismissed Trump as “a big fat guy” who “didn’t win many fights.”

As with John McCain (R-AZ), I will not mourn Harry Reid’s death.

Update (Jan. 4)

Reacting to this post, a Christian friend wrote in an email that he would pray for Harry Reid. A reader wrote an email scolding me that when I wrote “I will not mourn Harry Reid’s death,” I was kicking a man when he’s down. Here is my response:

I’d always had problems with our Lord’s injunction to “love your neighbor as yourself”. I don’t believe He means an uncritical, all-accepting, non-“judgmental” love. That would go against everything that He is.

Nor do priests help in their homilies: I have yet to hear one that satisfactorily defines/explains what “loving your neighbor” means.

I believe the answer is in Luke 10:25-37‘s account of the Good Samaritan, in which a scholar of the law asked Jesus “who is my neighbor” whom Jesus enjoins us to “love as ourselves”. Jesus replied with the Parable of the Good Samaritan:

“A man fell victim to robbers as he went down to Jerusalem from Jericho. They stripped and beat him and went off leaving him half-dead. A priest happened to be going down that road, but when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. Likewise, a Levite came to the place, and when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him was moved with compassion at the sight. He approached the victim, poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them. Then he lifted him up on his own animal, took him to an inn, and cared for him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper with the instruction, ‘Take care of him. If you spend more than what I have given you, I shall repay you on my way back.’ Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbor to the robbers’ victim?” He answered, “The one who treated him with mercy.” Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

And so, when we are instructed to love our neighbor, in Jesus’ own words, it means that when another has fallen, through no fault of his/her own, we are to treat “our neighbor” with kindness and compassion, and provide assistance to the best of our abilities. That is what it means to “love your neighbor as yourself.”

Harry Reid does not fit the definition of “our neighbor” — the man who fell victim to robbers through no fault of his own. Harry Reid’s pancreatic cancer is not akin to being robbed. Harry Reid did every evil in his life with full knowledge and free will, including profiting financially from the Obama BLM’s war against the Bundy Ranch. (See “” and InfoWars)

And so, I do not believe I am obliged to “love” Harry Reid. I don’t hate him — I don’t hate anyone — nor did I wish him pancreatic cancer, but I do not believe he merits my kindness, compassion, assistance, or love.

“When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices; when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy.” -Proverbs 11:10

Priorities: First order of business for Democrat House majority is abortion

“Every nation has the government it deserves.” – Count Joseph-Marie de Maistre (1763-1821)

Today is the first day of the 116th United States Congress.

Last November, American voters saw fit to elect a majority of Democrats to the House of Representatives.

As a demonstration of the House majority Democrats’ priority, their first order of business is the killing of tiny, innocent, unborn human beings.

The faces of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) — who portrays her beginnings as humble, from Bronx, when she actually grew up in upper middle-class Westchester County — and the other freshman Congresswomen remind me of this scene from The Devil’s Advocate (1997):

House Democrats have inserted language to expand abortion access into a bill to end the partial government shutdown. The bill is set for a vote tomorrow; the federal government has faced a partial government shutdown for 12 days. (H/t Washington Examiner)

The abortion language inserted into the spending bill is meant to:

  1. Undo what President Trump did on January 23, 2017, his first full day of work as President. That day, which was a day after the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, President Trump signed his first executive order reinstating the Mexico City Policy that bans U.S. taxpayers’ funding of at least half a billion dollars to international non-government organizations (NGOs) that perform abortions or provide information about abortion. House Democrats’ spending bill  includes language specifying that NGOs that perform abortions consistent with the laws in their country are eligible for U.S. family planning funds.
  2. Increase funding for the forced abortion-sterilization promoting United Nations Population Fund from $5 million to $37.5 million. The Trump administration’s State Department ended contributions to the fund because anti-abortion groups oppose its relationship with China, where citizens are not permitted to have more than two children, leading to forced abortions, sterilizations, and female infanticide.

Update (Jan. 8): House Democrats passed a first bill to restore $100 million in funding for Planned Parenthood. (LifeNews)

Such are the priorities of Demorats: Tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to fund abortions in the world and for Planned Parenthood in the U.S., but not for a US-Mexico border wall, never mind that Israel — the largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid — has an impregnable sea-land border wall.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said in a statement Democrats were “already trying to foist a radical pro-abortion agenda on the nation”. Since “a strong majority of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion,” House Democrats’ repeal of Trump’s policy on nongovernmental organizations would make “taxpayers complicit in the exportation of abortion and destruction of countless unborn children around the world. This is unconscionable and we oppose the bill in the strongest terms.”

Refusing to meet Trump’s demands for $5 billion to fund a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico, House Democrats plan to vote on two separate bills tomorrow to fund the federal government. Thankfully, the bills face dim prospects in the GOP-controlled Senate.

Meanwhile, you should know that abortion was the leading cause of death in the world in 2018.

There were approximately 41.95 million abortions carried out around the world in 2018, according to Worldometers, an organization that tracks death statistics. Overall, the deaths by abortion outnumbered those from cancer (8.2 million), malaria, HIV/AIDS (1.7 million), smoking, alcohol, and traffic accidents put together.
