HR 3222: Freedom of religion in danger with Democrat House majority

On Nov. 16, 1993, then-President Bill Clinton, a Democrat, signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) that “ensures that interests in religious freedom are protected” into law, with an almost-unanimous approval by Congress. Every House member approved of the bill; only three senators voted no.

Incredibly, both the House and Senate versions of RFRA were sponsored by Democrats: Rep. Chuck Shumer (NY) and Sen. Ted Kennedy (MA).

Then is then, and now is now.

The Democrat Party that spearheaded RFRA has become the hate-America, hate-God Demonrat Party that now is bent on the all-but-in-name repeal of the same law it once championed.

In an op/ed for the Washington Examiner, November 14, 2018, former Rep. Ernest Istook (R-Okla.), who now teaches political science at Utah Valley University, reports that even before the Nov. 6 election, 50 House Democrats had co-sponsored H.R. 3222, a bill to gut the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). With a majority of Demonrats now in control of the House of Representatives after the recent mid-term elections, there are now 172 House Democrats who support H.R. 3222, as their party takes control of the House.

H.R. 3222, sanctimoniously and deceptively titled the Do No Harm Act, is sponsored by Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D-Mass.) and co-sponsored by 170 other House members, all Demonrats, one of whom is the anticipated incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), 71. That committee would be in charge of approving the undoing of RFRA.

H.R. 3222’s companion Senate bill (S. 2918) is authored by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and co-sponsored by 28 other Demonrat senators.

Instead of a head-on repeal of RFRA, H.R. 3222 and S. 2918 take a sly approach by creating a long itemized list of exemptions from the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, thereby diminishing and undermining RFRA’s protection of religious freedom. The exemptions include sexual orientation, gender identity, and abortion. In effect, our Constitutional First Amendment right to freedom of religion would be declared less important than other claims never mentioned in the Constitution and often not even legislated by elected officials.

Groups endorsing HR 3222 and S 2918 are the usual leftwing suspects and promoters of evil: the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the Human Rights Campaign, Center for American Progress, Lambda Legal, NAACP, NARAL, National Center for Transgender Equality, National Organization of Women, and Planned Parenthood.

Istook writes:

H.R. 3222 would declare that religious freedoms must yield when they run counter to the LGBTQ agenda or to other progressive causes such as abortion rights. Pushing this are progressive groups which claim that religious beliefs are just a cover for discrimination, bigotry, and hate….

The turnaround [since RFRA] dramatizes how culture and politics have changed in 25 years. Secular values have been given priority and religious freedoms have been narrowed.

Istook warns that HR 3222 and S 2918 will also reverse the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby and Masterpiece Cakeshop decisions. State-level versions of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act are also being attacked. Those were enacted in 21 states after the U.S. Supreme Court in 1997 ruled that RFRA protects only against intrusive laws on the federal level.

And although the GOP-majority Senate is very unlikely to approve S. 2918 or any legislation gutting the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, those who oppose RFRA will be emboldened by HR 3222, and they will keep trying.

Shocker, not: Glamour “Women of the Year” are rabid anti-2A, TDS-infected progressives

The media continue their all-out attempt to push progressive narratives ahead of the mid-terms. Case in point: Glamour magazine has published their annual “Women of Year” issue and it includes several TDS-infected libtards.

From their article:

“In the 28 years that we’ve celebrated Women of the Year—both in our pages and at our annual summit and awards ceremony—the stories of our honorees often start with the same idea: a woman that refuses to wait for someone else to make things better. Alone, or with an army behind her, she decides to act.”

Honorees include:

Kamala Harris: The California senator who loves abortion and illegal aliens once joked about killing President Trump.

Chrissy Teigen: The anti-everything Trump model has a garbage mouth and calls for civility yet routinely trashes people on Twitter.

The Women Activists of March for Our Lives: These teenagers apparently “demanded change” and “won’t take no for an answer.”

What change exactly did they achieve?

Did they see that the Broward Coward sheriffs were held responsible for their inactions? Did they hold Sheriff Scott Israel responsible for his ineffective leadership? Did they see that the FBI was responsible for their inaction on the tips about the Parkland shooter?

Sure, some new gun laws were passed in Florida. Exactly how many school shootings have these new gun laws prevented?

Rather all these activists did was trash the NRA, Dana Loesch and responsible gun owners. As a result of their activism, NRA membership dramatically increased.

What a bunch of liberal garbage Glamour magazine is promoting.

Arizona Senate race: Democrat Kyrsten Sinema calls stay-at-home moms ‘leeches’

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Arizona), 42, is the first openly-bisexual person to be elected to Congress. She is now running to replace RINO Sen. Jeff Flake (R) in the U.S. Senate.

Raised a Mormon, Sinema began her political career as a Green Party activist, but switched to the Democrat Party. After she was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2012, she shifted toward the political center, crafting an image and record as a “conservative” center-left Democrat, despite the fact that in 2002 in a letter to The Arizona Republic, she trashed capitalism: “Until the average American realizes that capitalism damages her livelihood while augmenting the livelihoods of the wealthy, the Almighty Dollar will continue to rule.” (Source: Wall Street Journal)

According to The New York Times, Sinema has given “contradictory answers about her early life,” describing her childhood as one of great financial hardships, without “running water or electricity,” but the Times found that Sinema’s mother and stepfather made monthly payments on gas, electricity, and phone bills. Asked whether she had embellished details from her childhood, Sinema insisted, “I’ve shared what I remember from my childhood. I know what I lived through.”

The Times also observed that Sinema is running “one of the most moderate-sounding and cautious Senate campaigns this year, keeping the media at arms-length and avoiding controversial issues” and mentions of President Trump. Both Republicans and Democrats have said Sinema has “few major legislative accomplishments to her record” and is running “on a political image that she has shaped and reshaped over the years. And nothing is more central to it now than her childhood homelessness.”

Despite her contrived image as a “conservative” Democrat, Sinema is pro-abortion, with a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood, and committed to “advance” LBGT “rights”.

Writing for The Federalist on October 19, 2018, Bre Payton reminds Arizonans that:

  • In a 2006 interview with Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944, Sinema called stay-at-home moms “leeches”. She said: “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life. That’s bullshit. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?”
  • In newly resurfaced videos, Sinema is seen calling conservatives “Neanderthals”.

In an email, Brian Burch, President of Catholic Vote, writes:

And this woman wants to represent Arizona in the United States Senate!?

Just imagine what ‘Senator Sinema’ would be like! She represents everything we oppose. She has a 100% pro-abortion voting record and will vote for Planned Parenthood every time. She favors a full government takeover of health care. She opposes religious freedom. And Chuck Schumer will be able to count on her to vote against every single judge Trump nominates…

Imagine if a Republican had called single mothers ‘leeches.’

This is the same crazy politician who referred to her home state of Arizona as the “meth lab of democracy.” And during her anti-war protest days, she depicted U.S. troops as skeletons inflicting “U.S. terror” in Iraq.

The Arizona Senate race is neck-and-neck in the polls. Some believe this race will decide who controls the Senate next.

Kyrsten Sinema is running against Republican Martha McSally in Arizona’s Senate race.

Like Sinema, Martha McSally, 52, is a Congresswoman in the U.S. House of Representatives. She is a retired military officer who served in the U. S. Air Force from 1988 to 2010, rising to the rank of colonel. One of the highest-ranking female pilots in the history of the Air Force, McSally was the first American woman to fly in combat after the 1991 lifting of the prohibition on female combat pilots.

As of October 19, 2018, Real Clear Politics‘ average of polling data has McSally narrowly ahead by just 0.7%, at 46% (McSally) vs. 45.4% (Sinema).

Update (Oct. 24):

Krysten Sinema is also a witch/satanist.

From Townhall.com:

Emails reported in the Washington Examiner reveal that she invited a feminist witches coven called Pagan Cluster to help celebrate International Women’s Day and protest the Iraq war in March of 2003. Later that year, she wrote about a Miami protest in which she was “singing and spiraling in the pagan’s circle only 5 rows back from the police line.”

Trump administration HHS dumps contract to buy aborted baby body parts

It is bad enough that taxpayers continue to be forced to “subsidize” Planned Parenthood — the largest abortion business in America, killing 320,000 unborn babies every year, 900 babies every dayto the tune of $400 million a year, thanks to these four senators. (See “Four senators blocked Senate from passing bill to defund Planned Parenthood,” Aug. 26, 2018.)

Did you know that taxpayers also pay for federal government agencies’ purchases of aborted baby body parts for medical research?

In response to pressure from Congress and pro-life groups, including Operation Rescue, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finally terminated a contract with Advanced Biosciences, a company that procures aborted baby remains from abortion facilities and sells them.

Here’s the HHS’s press release of Sept. 24, 2018:

After a recent review of a contract between Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. and the Food and Drug Administration to provide human fetal tissue to develop testing protocols, HHS was not sufficiently assured that the contract included the appropriate protections applicable to fetal tissue research or met all other procurement requirements. As a result, that contract has been terminated, and HHS is now conducting an audit of all acquisitions involving human fetal tissue to ensure conformity with procurement and human fetal tissue research laws and regulations. In addition, HHS has initiated a comprehensive review of all research involving fetal tissue to ensure consistency with statutes and regulations governing such research, and to ensure the adequacy of procedures and oversight of this research in light of the serious regulatory, moral, and ethical considerations involved. Finally, HHS is continuing to review whether adequate alternatives exist to the use of human fetal tissue in HHS funded research and will ensure that efforts to develop such alternatives are funded and accelerated.

While that is good news, the Susan B. Anthony List, which spearheaded the effort to halt all such activity, points out that this means that fetal tissue experimentation may continue as long as it meets government “standards”. SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a written statement:

[HHS] Secretary Azar must put an immediate moratorium on funding for research using aborted baby organs and tissue purchased from the abortion industry. Further, Secretary Azar should instead devote tax dollars to ethical alternatives that – unlike experimentation on fetal tissue – produce successful therapies for patients. Canceling a single contract and conducting a review is a small step forward, but overall is completely inadequate.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue also points out that HHS is just one federal government agency that canceled its contract to procure aborted baby body part. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) currently funds experimentation using human fetal tissue and organs to the tune of $100 million U.S. taxpayer dollars. Much of the aborted baby tissue and organs goes to create human-mouse chimera — mice that are altered to more closely resemble human systems.

The President of Operation Rescue says:

“Ghoulish experiments that use humanized mice… have no business being funded by the American taxpayer, most of whom would be horrified to learn their tax money was being used in this way. All experimentation on aborted baby remains funded by the U.S. government must be terminated for the sake of human decency.”

Aborted baby tissue is also being used to produce vaccines. See:

Your tax dollars at work: Planned Parenthood threatens senators if they vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh

Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in America, kills 320,000 unborn babies every year, 900 babies every day. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion — $400 million of which came from taxpayers. As Senator Rand Paul said in his speech on August 23 on the Senate floor:

“Planned Parenthood received over 400 million dollars of taxpayer money [a year], the government with a wink and a nod tells us that Planned Parenthood doesn’t spend the money on abortions but everybody knows that the taxpayers are really cross-subsidizing Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills.”

This is what Planned Parenthood Abortionhood is doing with your tax dollars.

Fearing that if confirmed, Kavanaugh would be the 5th Supreme Court vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, Planned Abortionhood has spent nearly $1 million in a campaign to “#StopKavanaugh”.

Yesterday, the abortion mill took a step further and is now threatening to go after senators (“we’re coming for you”) who’ll vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee U.S. District Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh. (Daily Wire)

This is what Planned Abortionhood tweeted yesterday morning:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Vote NO on #Kavanaugh
Or else we’re coming for you

Commenter Qackerjak on Voat has the best response to Planned Parenthood’s threat:

What’s PP think they’re going to do? Shove a pair of scissors into their skulls? Rip off their arms & legs? Cut up their bodies and sell them for parts? If they think they can, let them try. Conservatives are not tiny little defenseless babies… we’ll kick their asses from here to China.

Pro-aborts don’t just kill defenseless unborn babies.

They also assault adults.

Micaiah Bilger reports for LifeNews.com that on Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018, at the annual Life Chain — a peaceful, prayer-filled event to publicly witness to the tragedy of abortion — in downtown Toronto, Canada, a pro-abort man wearing a pentagram necklace high-kicked a pro-life young woman, Campaign Life Coalition’s youth coordinator Marie-Claire Bissonnette.

Bissonnette said that the man first took out markers and defaced two of Campaign Life Coalition’s signs. Bissonnette took out her cell phone and began to record him, telling him that his defacing and destruction of private property was against the law. The man then roundhouse-kicked Bissonnette; her phone drops to the ground as she asks for someone to call the police.

After the video went viral and an appeal was made to the public to identify the pro-abort assailant, Toronto hair salon Noble Studio 101 posted a message on Instagram identifying the man as their employee Jordan Hunt, whom the salon had fired after seeing the video.

In the event that YouTube censors the video by removing it, I had this GIF made of Jordan Hunt’s assault on Bissonnette:

The Washington Free Beacon reports that Jordan Hunt also scribbled on several pro-lifers’ clothes, including those of a 10-year-old girl.

Bissonnette said she was not the only person targeted Sunday during the Life Chains. In Mississagua, someone walked up to a pro-life advocate from behind and poured paint over his clothes while he was praying. She wrote for LifeSiteNews:

“I’ve participated in many public pro-life activities throughout my life. This isn’t the first time I’ve been attacked. Rocks have been thrown at me. I’ve been spat upon multiple times and pushed. Men have aggressively asked how I would like it if they raped me and forced me to have an abortion. There is a media-driven narrative that pro-life activists are violent and a danger to women. This is a bald-faced lie. The only violence or aggression I’ve witnessed in my many years in the pro-life movement comes entirely from pro-abortion activists, and yet it’s rarely, if ever, reported.

You should know that on August 23, 2018, a pro-life amendment sponsored by Sen. Rand Paul to revoke taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood failed in the U.S. Senate by a narrow 45-48 vote.

Taxpayers and the 320,000 babies who are killed by Planned Parenthood every year have these four senators to thank, whose “no” votes ensure that the abortion mill continues to be subsidized by our tax dollars.

Did baby butchers Planned Parenthood force Austin Hyatt Regency to cancel a screening of “Gosnell” movie?

The movie, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” opens October 12. The producers had planned a free pre-screening of the movie at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Austin, Texas this Saturday.

The Hyatt canceled the Gosnell movie event, even after movie producers had paid a deposit and signed a contract with the hotel.

The reason? Planned Parenthood has a $400-per-plate fundraiser featuring former CEO Cecile Richards planned at the hotel that was scheduled the same time as the movie screening.

Life News reports that more than 250 people signed up for the free pre-screening event, and dozens more registering daily. Here’s more about what happened:

“The movie’s producers, however, were told Monday by the hotel the screen was canceled for “security reasons.”

The producers told WND they paid the deposit and signed the contract to reserve the space for the screening.

“Everything that was required by the Hyatt was provided and completed as required,” a spokesman said.”


Back in 2016, Planned Parenthood’s Greater Texas Chapter held a fundraiser at the Dallas Hyatt Regency. At that event, the baby butchers raised more than $850,000, the most ever raised during a single event by the local chapter.

In March this year, the Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida held their annual dinner at a Hyatt Regency (Sarasota).

In 2012, United Airlines hosted a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast at the Houston Hyatt.

In November this year, Cecile Richards will speak at the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s yearly gathering at the San Francisco Hyatt.

Sounds like Planned Parenthood and the Hyatt Regency have a good business relationship. I think we can pretty much assume why the Hyatt gave preference to the baby butchers over the Kermit Gosnell movie screening.

The New Clinton Reveals Her Conscience

Chelsea Clinton, some say as bad as her mother,
does virtue signaling about “abortion rights.”

(Washington Examiner) Chelsea Clinton said that it would be “un-Christian” to roll back abortion protections granted by the U.S. Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade.

“When I think about all of the statistics, that are painful, of what women are confronting today in our country, and what even more women confronted pre- Roe, and how many women died, and how many more women were maimed because of unsafe abortion practices, we just can’t go back to that,” Clinton said during a SiriusXM Progress Town Hall clip uploaded Thursday.

“That’s unconscionable to me. And also, I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it’s also un-Christian to me,” Clinton said.

What exactly is Chelsea’s concept of Christian? 

Can the daughter of a woman who attends “spirit cooking” events, and who is friendly with the “Church of Satan” in NYC have any valid idea of what a Christian actually is?

WND: Twitter to pro-lifers: Don’t mention abortion

Pro-lifers to Twitter:

WND EXCLUSIVE
TWITTER’S ‘PUBLIC CONVERSATION’ DOESN’T INCLUDE PRO-LIFERS
Live Action told it would have to scrub its viewpoint on abortion
by BOB UNRUH

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey claimed in testimony before Congress just days ago, “We see that news and entertainment are actually byproducts of public conversation, and we see our role as helping to not only serve that public conversation so that everyone can benefit … but also to increase the health of that conversation.”

Except, apparently, when the viewpoint is pro-life…
