Trump announces executive order protecting babies who survive abortion

Excellent news!

From NY Post: President Trump will sign an executive order to protect babies born prematurely or after surviving an abortion, he announced Wednesday.

“Today, I am announcing that I will be signing the Born Alive Executive Order to ensure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve,” the commander-in-chief told attendees while delivering the keynote address at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast.

“This is our sacrosanct moral duty,” he remarked at the virtual event.

The president went on to tout the importance of Catholic schools for offering underserved children a chance at a better education.

In his speech, Trump also announced an increase in federal funding for neonatal research “to ensure that every child has the best chance to thrive and to grow.”

The White House declined The Post’s request for more details on the order, including when they hoped it would be signed.

The order was meant to strengthen pro-life efforts, though what it would specifically do was not immediately explained.

A source familiar with the contents of the order told Bloomberg that it would highlight existing legislation that offers increased protections for premature or unborn babies.

TV’s “biggest” night – Emmy Awards – has another record-setting low in ratings

Apparently the Emmy Awards was broadcast Sunday night. I didn’t even know it was on until I saw the news on Twitchy that they were bashing President Trump and his supporters (how original).

Jimmy “Blackface” Kimmel hosted the show. There was no live audience. And the TDS continued throughout the show.

How’d that work out for them?

Emmy Ratings: Another Record-Setting Low for TV’s Biggest Night

From Yahoo:

For the second year in a row, the Primetime Emmy Awards broke an all-time record low for viewership.

Nielsen data stated that the Primetime Emmys, which aired at 8 p.m. ET on ABC on Sunday, garnered 6.1 million total viewers. That’s a sharp drop from the 2019 Emmys’ 6.9 million viewers on Fox. The 2020 Primetime Emmys’ viewership was the lowest since the event began tracking viewership data in 1990.

The 2020 Emmys have been Hollywood’s largest awards show since the coronavirus pandemic began impacting daily life in the United States. There’s no indication that the pandemic directly depressed viewership numbers, but the coronavirus had an indirect impact on the Emmys via network TV’s Sunday sports programming. Competing Sunday evening programming included Sunday Night Football and an NBA game featuring the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets; NFL programming on several networks was significantly higher than viewership for the Emmys.”

Dogs save lost toddler and woman assaulted by 2 men

Dogs truly are remarkable creatures.

Below are two true-life accounts of humans who owe their lives to heroic dogs.

(1) Homeless dog saves vacationing woman attacked by two men

The Telegraph reports, August 20, 2015, that Georgia Bradley, 25, a student at UK’s Plymouth University, and her boyfriend were vacationing in the Greek islands.

One day, Bradley decided to take a walk alone on a beach in the small town of Georgioupoli, Crete, her boyfriend at a nearby café, when she was surrounded by two aggressive men who grabbed her when she rejected their advances.

Just at that moment, a small, black dog “appeared from nowhere” and started barking at the men, scaring them off.

Bradley said: “I decided to go for a walk along the beach, and found two Greek men who kept harassing me to go out for a drink. I kept telling them I didn’t want to. Then one of them grabbed me on the arm and I didn’t know what was going to happen. I was on my own and it was a very scary and difficult situation.” Bradley said the dog must have noticed something was wrong and “saved her”. 

After the incident, the little dog followed Bradley back to her apartment. Bradley said they had an instant bond, and that she believed the dog, whom she called Pepper, was abandoned as she had seen it wandering around the town alone. She said: “Pretty much every evening we saw her around outside the bars and restaurants, trying to get the attention of the tourists. Every time we got close to her she wouldn’t let you stroke her. She was very gentle, but was too scared to let you close.”

Bradley tried to persuade a local animal shelter to take Pepper, but was unsuccessful, and eventually had to return home to Calstock, Cornwall, England. She said: “When we left to go to the airport, we looked back and Pepper was running after the car. It was heartbreaking. When I got home I couldn’t stop thinking about her so I took the soonest flight back out that I could, which was two weeks later.”

But Pepper was nowhere to be seen. Bradley spent five weeks trying to find the stray, which took two further trips to Crete. Eventually, Bradley found Pepper on the same beach where the little dog had saved the woman from the two men.

After the dog was confirmed as a stray, Bradley had Pepper microchipped, wormed with a rabies jab, and given a pet passport. Pepper had to spend 21 days in quarantine in boarding kennels but was eventually allowed to travel to Britain.

When Bradley returned to Crete for a third time to collect Pepper, she was greeted with a surprise: The kennel owner told her that Pepper, a Terrier Poodle Cross, was pregnant!

A week after arriving back in the UK, Pepper gave birth to six puppies.

Bradley said: “It has been such a crazy journey. But I am over the moon. Pepper has settled in brilliantly.”

(2) Old deaf-and-blind dog saves toddler

ABC News reports, April 20, 2018, that 3-year-old Aurora was reported missing about 3 pm on Friday after she wandered off in wet weather in the rugged bushland of her family’s rural property in Queensland’s Southern Downs, Australia.

But a search of woodlands and hills on the rural property found no trace of her.

On Saturday morning, more than 100 State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, police and members of the public resumed the search.

At around 8 am, 15 hours after Aurora had gone missing, Leisa Bennett, Aurora’s grandmother, was calling out to the girl when she heard Aurora cry, “Grammy!”.

Bennett said she “shot up the mountain” and when she got to the top, Max, the 17-year-old deaf and partially-blind family dog, came right up to Bennett and led her straight to the girl. Bennett said Max had stayed next to Aurora all night: “She smelled of dog, she slept with the dog.” 

SES area controller Ian Phipps said Aurora was about 1½ miles from the family home: “The area around the house is quite mountainous and is very inhospitable terrain to go walking in, so she’d travelled quite a distance with her dog that was quite loyal to her. The search was actually quite hard where the volunteers and the police were, amongst the very steep slopes full of lantana and other vegetation.”

Phipps said Aurora suffered minor cuts and abrasions but was otherwise well and it was a wonderful outcome for the family and searchers. He said: “With the weather last night it’s quite lucky she is well because it was cold, it was cold and raining. She’s a very hardy young lass to survive that without any ill effects and everyone, all the volunteers are extremely happy.”

For his good work in keeping the little girl safe, Max has now been declared an honorary police dog by the Queensland Police.

Help this WWII vet celebrate his 111th birthday!

Meet Lawrence Brooks, the oldest living American to have survived World War II. Looks pretty good for a man over 100, doesn’t he?!

According to this CNN article from last year, Brooks served as a support worker in the Army’s 91st Engineer Battalion, a majority African-American unit stationed in New Guinea and the Philippines during the war. He reached the rank of private first class.

CNN notes: “In an interview with the museum, Brooks recounted a story of riding in a C-47 cargo plane from Australia to New Guinea. The plane was loaded down with barbed wire but “one of the motors went out on it,” he said.

To lighten the plane, those aboard threw much of the cargo into the ocean. Brooks threw the boxes out of the plane like his life depended on it: there were only enough parachutes on the plane for the pilot and the co-pilot.

Brooks said he joked to the aircraft’s pilot: “If he’s going to jump, I’m going to grab him.”

The National World War II Museum is helping him celebrate his birthday next month. They are asking for people to send him a birthday card!

Here’s the request from their Facebook page:

“This year our birthday celebration of America’s oldest living WWII veteran Lawrence Brooks will look a little different. With the global pandemic, we must forgo our traditional get together in favor of some socially distanced fun. Mr. Brooks, a New Orleans native, will turn 111 this year, and we are asking everyone to send in birthday cards to the Museum so that we can deliver them to his home. Please send your card to the address below by Tuesday, September 1:

The National WWII Museum
c/o Happy 111th Mr. Brooks!
945 Magazine Street
New Orleans, LA 70130

Thank you for your help in making Mr. Brooks’ 111th birthday a special one!”

Happy Birthday, Mr. Brooks and THANK YOU for your service!
