Abortion is not negotiable: Democratic Party Draws A Line In The Sand On Abortion Rights

tom perez

The DNC future: Agree with us or go


A personal/religious belief shall not go against the collective thinking of the demorat platform.
Tom Perez is the best thing to happen to the RNC (and yes, I mean RNC)!
From HuffPo: Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez became the first head of the party to demand ideological purity on abortion rights, promising Friday to support only Democratic candidates who back a woman’s right to choose.
“Every Democrat, like every American, should support a woman’s right to make her own choices about her body and her health,” Perez said in a statement. “That is not negotiable and should not change city by city or state by state.”
“At a time when women’s rights are under assault from the White House, the Republican Congress, and in states across the country,” he added, “we must speak up for this principle as loudly as ever and with one voice.” 
Perez’s statement follows the DNC’s controversial embrace of Heath Mello, a Democratic mayoral candidate in Omaha, Nebraska, whose years-long history of voting against abortion rights in the state Legislature drew fire from progressives this week. Daily Kos, a liberal website that raises money for lesser-known Democratic candidates, pulled its endorsement of Mello this week after discovering his history on the issue, and NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue slammed the DNC for adding him to its cross-country unity tour.
“The actions today by the DNC to embrace and support a candidate for office who will strip women — one of the most critical constituencies for the party — of our basic rights and freedom is not only disappointing, it is politically stupid,” Hogue said in a statement.
Perez initially defended the DNC’s acceptance of an anti-abortion Democrat. “Our job at the DNC is to help Democrats who have garnered support from voters in their community cross the finish line and win ― from school board to Senate,” Perez said. “The biggest threat to women’s reproductive rights is the relentless Republican attacks on women’s health care, including legal, accessible abortion services. And I won’t let anyone get in the way of our fight to protect a woman’s right to choose.”
But Perez changed course Friday and delivered a big victory to the reproductive rights movement, saying that he “fundamentally disagree[s] with Heath Mello’s personal beliefs about women’s reproductive health” and that “every candidate who runs as a Democrat should do the same, because every woman should be able to make her own health choices. Period.” 
Perez’s statement will likely alienate some high-profile anti-abortion Democrats in the party, including Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and Sens. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Edwards said at the Democratic National Convention in 2016 that the party might be more successful in the Deep South if it allowed more anti-abortion candidates to rise in the ranks. 
“It’s hard to remain a big-tent party if you have a very small platform,” he said. “We have to make our voices heard.”
Reproductive rights advocates agree with Perez that the party must stand firm on the issue. Hogue celebrated the victory for the movement on Friday.  “Kudos to Chair Tom Perez and the DNC for recognizing that we are a stronger party when we stand for our core values,” she said in a statement to The Huffington Post. “Women across the country who are, and have always been, the heart and soul of the Party, are breathing a sigh of relief to know that the DNC has our backs, and we look forward to a day when we don’t have to fight this fight again.”

Democrat big donors: donating to Hillary's losing campaign was like burning money

This morning, our DCG posted that Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign cost a record $1.2B, which was twice as much as what the Trump campaign spent.
So it should come as no surprise that at least some of Hillary’s big donors think their money was wasted — they might as well have set fire to the piles of cash.
donating-money-to-hillary-clintons-presidential-campaign
Jonathan Easley reports for The Hill, Dec. 1, 2016, that Democrat big donors went whole hog for Hillary to the tune of more than $550 million, believing she would dispatch Trump, deliver Democrats the Senate, help the party make inroads into the GOP’s House majority, as well as cement Obama’s legacy.
Instead, not only did Hillary lose, Democrats are now in disarray, in the throes of a full-scale and expensive rebuilding project with a rudderless Democratic National Committee (DNC) that won’t elect a new leader until more than a month after Trump is sworn into office.
Adding insult to the injury: The names of many donors were released in the WikiLeaks emails, which has rattled some of the party’s big-money men and women.
John Morgan & Marc Nathanson
John Morgan, an Orlando attorney and one of Clinton’s top fundraisers in Florida, said:

“I may very well be done with political giving entirely. My message to anyone reading this is, ‘Don’t call me, I’ll call you.’ From here on out, I’m giving to charities. I’d much rather give money to build a new Boys & Girls Club than to give to the [Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee].”

Investor Marc Nathanson, one of Clinton’s top donors and fundraisers in 2016, says he has no interest in participating in the party’s rebuilding efforts. While he would continue to give money and support to Democratic candidates in gubernatorial and mayoral races in his home state of California, he will stay on the sidelines. He said:

“The feeling I get from big donors out here in California is that they’re not only extremely disappointed, but they’re shell-shocked. So to turn around and say, now it’s time to rebuild the national party and the DNC, I just don’t see it.”

The big donors’ sore feelings are a huge problem for the DNC, which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018. It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments.

Some Democrats believe the fundraising panic is being overblown, arguing that in Trump, the party has a fearsome boogeyman that will keep horrified donors in a giving mood. They’re optimistic that jilted donors will change their tune once the DNC elects a new leader and as the midterm elections near. Democrats face a daunting map in the 2018 midterm elections, when they’ll be defending 25 of the 46 seats they currently hold in the Senate. A filibuster-proof majority is within reach for Republicans.

Democrats with a rosier view point to the following:

  • A Nov. 14 donor event in Washington, D.C., including George Soros, was notable for its “bigger than expected turnout.”

gara-lamarche-david-brock-james-alefantis

  • Gara LaMarche, the president of Democracy Alliancea big money group that funds the Black Lives Matter protests and riots — has been touring the liberal donor hubs of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston to discuss the “progressive” movement’s way forward with top donors. LaMarche said, “There is deep frustration with the Democratic Party and the political consultant class among the donors who put a lot of money into the electoral efforts, who don’t feel their money was spent well. They want to know what went wrong. But there is also an emergency response to protecting policies, whether it’s abortion or EPA regulations or ObamaCare, that is mobilizing and energizing the wider set of progressive donors.”

  • David Brock of the liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America — the Democrat activist whose former boyfriend is James Alefantis, owner of Comet Ping Pong pedo pizzeria — has invited 225 current donors and 175 prospective donors to a meeting in Palm Beach, Fla., over Trump’s inaugural weekend. Brock has ambitious plans to create Democrat counterparts of the Koch Brothers, Breitbart, and the influential citizens watchdog group Judicial Watch.

But even the prospect of the 2018 midterm election isn’t enough to get some angry donors back in the game. One DNC official told The Hill the donors are “tired. They’re upset about the election, and there was significant trauma surrounding the Russians. They’re upset and they’re tired.”

“significant trauma surrounding the Russians”? Ha, ha, ha, ha.

Not only are those Democrat big donors “useful idiots,” they actually believe the Democrats’ fake news!

Head of Democratic Party Donna Brazile: no Obama economic recovery, people are in despair

Yesterday, I received a rare phone call from my brother. He just needed to commiserate with the only person he knows who isn’t liberal and who shares his political views about the upcoming presidential election.
He complained that his wife, their two adult sons, and his friends all support Hillary Clinton and think Obama is great.
I said, “Have you asked them why they like Obama?”
He answered, “They say the economy is great! Unemployment is low, interest rates are low, the economy recovered from the recession.” He also said that his wife thinks Donald Trump is “crazy”.
Not surprisingly, they get their news from the MSM and don’t pay attention to the Alternative Media. God help us from intentionally low-information voters, otherwise called useful idiots.
So this post is for my brother. Perhaps he can email this to his sons, wife, and friends. (Probably not. This is the same brother who was silent in 2008 when one of his friends, whom I don’t know, accused me of being “evil” and a “racist”. My brother had forwarded an email from me, without my consent, of a photo of Obama carrying Fareed Zakaria’s then-recently published book, The Post-American World. My brother then very helpfully forwarded his friend’s email to me, in which his friend called me an “evil racist”.)
obama-with-fareed-zakarias-book
Donna Brazile, a longtime Democrat apparatchik who, in July 2016, replaced Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as Chair of the Democratic Party Committee, sent an email to John Podesta, Chair of Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign committee, in which Brazile said:

“I think people are more in despair about how things are – yes new jobs but they are low wage jobs… HOUSING is a huge issue. Most people pay half of what they make to rent…”

Here’s a screenshot of Brazile’s email from WikiLeaks:
donna-brazile-to-john-podesta-one-a-week-email
What Brazile wrote in her email is confirmed by a recent Harvard University Business School study, “Problems Unsolved & A Nation Divided: The State of U.S. Competitiveness 2016,” which found that the Obama economic recovery is a myth. As the 72-page report’s title suggests, not only has the economy not recovered from the 2008 recession, it has continued to deteriorate.
In the words of the report’s authors Michael E. Porter, et al.:

“America retains and enjoys many strengths. However, various economic indicators show that the U.S. economy has failed to deliver strong growth and shared prosperity for nearly two decades. These structural issues pre-date the Great Recession and are compounded by political paralysis. […]

While a slow recovery is underway, fundamentally weak U.S. economic performance continues and is leaving many Americans behind. The federal government has made no meaningful progress on the critical policy steps to restore U.S. competitiveness in the last decade or more. […]

U.S. competitiveness has been eroding since well
before the Great Recession. America’s economic
challenges are structural, not cyclical. The weak
recovery reflects the erosion of competitiveness, as
well as the inability to take the steps necessary to
address growing U.S. weaknesses.

Our failure to make progress reflects an unrealistic and ineffective national discourse on the reality of the challenges facing the U.S. economy and the steps needed to restore shared prosperity. Business has too often failed to play its part in recent decades, and a flawed U.S. political system has led to an absence of progress in government, especially in Washington.”

You can read the report here.

For those who prefer charts instead of words, the following charts from the Harvard study — on labor force participation, job creation, news business formation, productivity, household income, entitlements vs. investments — all show a continuing decline under the Obama presidency, except for the gap between entitlements and investment, which has widened.

Donald Trump is right in his concluding remarks at the third presidential debate last Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016, on why the American people should elect him as president:

“When I started this campaign, I started it very strongly. It’s called ‘Make America Great Again’. We’re going to make America again.
We have a depleted military, it has to be helped, it has to be fixed. We have the greatest people on earth in our military. We don’t take care of our veterans. We take care of illegal immigrants — people that come into the country illegally — better than we take care of our vets. That can’t happen. Our policemen and women are disrespected. We need law and order, but we need justice too. Our inner cities are a disaster: you get shot walking to the store; they have no education, they have no jobs.
I will do more for African Americans and Latinos than she can ever do in ten lifetimes. All she’s done is talk — to the African Americans and to the Latinos. But they get the vote and then they come back, they say ‘we’ll see you in four years.’
We are going to make America strong again. We are going to make America great again, and it has to start now. We cannot take four more years of Barack Obama, and [pointing to Hillary] that’s what you get when you get her.


Donald Trump is not perfect or a saint; he is his own worst enemy. But if you’re sick of what’s happened to this country for the last 8 or more years, if you are no better, or even worse, since Obama became president in 2009, then voting for Hillary Clinton is the stupidest thing you can ever do.
eric-trump-tweet-on-hillary-and-jobs
Listen to what she says: Hillary Clinton has no new ideas. If you elect her, you’ll get not only four more years of Obama, America will be saddled with a predominately left-wing Supreme Court who will set this country’s course for generations to come.

Chair of Democratic National Committee admits Obama is lazy


Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is the Chair of the Democratic National Committee.
Chuck Ross reports for The Daily Caller that Wasserman-Schultz was interviewed on MSNBC last Wednesday, July 30, 2014, ahead of a Republican-backed measure to sue Obama for overstepping his executive authority, especially in his unilateral actions to implement Obamacare.
In the interview, the DNC chair inadvertently agreed with a complaint levied most often by Republicans that Obama has not put much effort into his job.
Wasserman-Schultz said, “I’m going to go to the House floor and actually debate why we shouldn’t be voting for the first time in American history to sue the president of the United States for doing his job, and doing his job actually less often and at a rate that is lower than any other president since Grover Cleveland.
Of course Wasserman-Schultz blames the POS’s laziness on “the Republicans refuse to do anything”!
GOP's faultCleveland, one of the lowest-rated U.S. presidents, was president for two non-consecutive terms from 1885 to 1889 and from 1893 to 1897.
According to an analysis by the New York Post, Obama has played golf 185 times since taking office in 2009. The POS has hit the links 81 times during his second term — more than doubling the rate of his first term. President Ebola also spends a lot of time raising money for fellow Democrats, attending 75 fundraisers since his 2012 re-election.

Air Quality Takes a Nosedive in North Carolina

The Stench of Socialism in North Carolina

As a resident of North Carolina I started noticing a slight odor last Saturday at my home 152 miles east of Charlotte. At first I thought it was one of my neighbors septic systems, but that turned out not to be the case. As the holiday weekend continued the smell became stronger especially when the wind blew from the west. The offending odor could only be described as a combination of bullshit, the reek of desperation and the stench of socialism.

By Tuesday the funk was really bad and I finally put two and two together, between the DNC and the occupy idiots, they were polluting the air for hundreds of miles. The only breath of fresh air comes from visiting Conservative websites such as FOTM, listening to Conservative talk radio and watching FOX News.

After the peak of pungency tonight, we should start to see the stench slip away and our air quality return to normal. Hopefully North Carolina will never have to endure the emanations of this many democrats gathered together in one place ever again.

Code Pink bringing their, um, privates to the RNC

Bring your Vagina to the RNC

Eve Ensler famously said: “My vagina’s furious and it needs to talk.”  Our vaginas need to talk, too.  They need to talk about the way women’s rights are threatened worldwide–from anti-choise legislation to inappropriate rape jokes to economic inequality to war and occupation overseas that disproportionately affect women’s lives…
Join CODEPINK and V-Day to bring your vagina to the Republican National Convetion in Tampa, FL August 27 – 30!
Together, we will bring our resilient, creative, powerful vaginas to Republican fundraisers and to the convention hall.  We’ll also take part in the Coalition March on the RNC and other peace and justice actions.
I’m sure they’ll be protesting inappropriate rape jokes at the DNC too.  You know, the ones from the likes of Bill Maher and John Stewart? Whoops, maybe not.
Let’s just hope they keep those vaginas fully clothed!

Obama adviser thinks stay-at-home moms are lazy slackers

Yesterday, interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper on the “war on women” (whatever that means), Hilary Rosen, an adviser to stalking horse for Obama and the Democratic National Committee, lobbed an insult at the wife of Mitt Romney, Ann.
Rosen said:

“Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life.”

I honestly had never seen a woman who has never worked a day in her life! So I found a picture of Ann Romney when she was younger and the mother of five, just so readers of Fellowship of the Minds can see what a woman who “has actually never worked a day in her life” looks like:

64-year-old Ann Romney is also a grandmother of 16.
+++
In addition to being an Obama and DNC adviser, Hilary Beth Rosen worked for  the music industry (Recording Industry Association of America) from 1994 to 2003 as first its president, then chairman and chief executive, and its chief Washington lobbyist. She then became a political commentator for CNBC and MSNBC.
An out lesbian, Rosen had twins (boy and girl) with her partner, attorney and fellow LBGT activist Elizabeth Birch. Sadly, the couple split up in 2006.
Here’s a pic of Rosen (left), Birch (r), and their (adopted?) twins:

Shame on you, Hilary Rosen, for demeaning the work and value of mothers and wives. And you call yourself a feminist?
The real “War on Women” is being waged by sick ideologues like Hilary Rosen and her advisee, the illegal squatter in the White House.

Obama Targets Anti-Fraud Voter ID Law

Let me ask you a simple question:

When you go to the DMV to get a driver’s license, don’t you have to show identification proving you are who you say you are?

When you go to the Post Office to get a passport, don’t you have to show valid identification proving you are who you say you are?

When you go buy something in a store without using cash, don’t you have to show your driver’s license to prove you are who your credit or debit card says you are?

Then why is it that when we go to the voting booth to exercise one of the most important acts as an American citizen, we shouldn’t produce valid ID to prove we are who we say we are? And if you favor voter ID, you’re called a racist?
To prevent voter fraud, many states have passed voter-ID laws. Some of those states even provide a valid identification for free to residents who do not have a driver’s license.
The Supreme Court has upheld those voter ID laws.
But the Obama administration is attacking those exact same laws, using the contorted justification that asking for voter ID discriminates against minorities.
Really? Does Obama have such a low opinion of America’s racial/ethnic minorities that he thinks they’re too stupid to know how to acquire a voter ID card?
Judicial Watch reports, Dec. 7, 2011, that the Obama Administration is once again utilizing the Department of Justice (DOJ) as a political tool, this time to challenge voter identification laws.
The powerful chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz) is calling ID laws a “full-scale assault” on minority voters designed to “rig” elections for Republicans.
Eight states have strict laws that require a voter to provide picture identification in order to cast a ballot. All but two of the states—Georgia and Indiana—passed their measures this year. But the DOJ’s bloated civil rights division says those measures are “discriminatory” in purpose or effect. Targets of the DOJ’s discrimination probe are Kansas, Wisconsin, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Mississippi.
Reiterating the administration’s “commitment to robust civil rights enforcement,” Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Thomas Perez confirmed last week that DOJ lawyers are reviewing some of the recently-enacted state laws to ensure that they are not racially discriminatory. “We have received numerous inquiries about recently enacted state laws relating to voter identification requirements, voter registration requirements and changes to early voting procedures,” Perez said, adding that “we are carefully reviewing these laws.”
In 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s voter ID law, ruling that the state’s interest in protecting the integrity of the voting process outweighed the insufficiently proven burdens the law may impose on voters. “There is no question about the legitimacy or importance of the State’s interest in counting only the votes of eligible voters,” the nation’s highest court said in its decision.
The ruling makes the DOJ’s aggressive intervention all the more questionable, like some of its other politically-motivated actions. Earlier this year Judicial Watch obtained internal government records that show political appointees at the DOJ ordered a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party dismissed. Clad in military attire and armed with weapons, members of the radical group intimidated white voters with racial insults and profanity during the 2008 presidential election and were scheduled to be prosecuted.
H/t beloved fellow Tina.


Democrats have engaged in voter fraud in 2008 and, most recently, in 2010. Head of the DOJ and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder even admitted that he wouldn’t prosecute the New Black Panthers ’cause they’re “his people.” It’s high time we start calling the DOJ under Obama the Department of Injustice.
Maybe that’s why, more than a year ago, the DOJ changed its website’s banner from the red-white-and-blue to this ominous black:

Obama Hires New Minister of Propaganda

Nazi Germany had a Minister of Propaganda, the infamous Joseph Goebbels. His full title was Reich Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda (Volksaufklärung und Propaganda).
Meet Jesse Lee, Obama’s propaganda minister, whose formal title is Director of Progressive Media and Online Response.
A week ago, on May 23, 2011, the White House appointed 31-year-old Jesse Lee to the newly created position “to help maintain the President’s online presence as he prepares for his 2012 Presidential reelection bid.”
Clearly, Lee means to be Obama’s Rottweiler because his first tweet about his new position included a picture of the demonic red-eyed cyborg assassin, the Terminator.
Formerly Obama’s Online Programs Director, Lee’s new duties as Director of Progressive Media and Online Response Propaganda Minister include “dealing with negative or factually incorrect stories about Obama” — a task formerly handled by the Democratic National Committee’s rapid response team.
Lee even has his own webpage on WhiteHouse.gov.
Lee is experienced with the Internet. As Obama’s Online Programs Director, appointed February 23, 2009, Lee ran the Whitehouse.gov website and innovated techniques to engage individuals on the Internet.  Before that, he was hired to do Internet work for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in 2003; worked in their online division from 2004 to 2006; was Senior New Media Advisor to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the 110th Congress; performed online response for the DNC during the 2008 presidential election; and did online outreach in the New Media department of Obama’s presidential transition team.
In September 2009, Lee defended Obama against criticism from Glenn Beck by claiming that Beck and Fox News lie. At the time, Jim Kuhnhenn of the Associated Press noted that “calling a news networks’ assertions ‘lies’ is unusually confrontational”.
That modus operandus is a harbinger of Jesse Lee, the propaganda minister. As Paul Joseph Watson of Prison Planet.com writes on May 24, 2011, “White House Hires ‘Terminator’ To ‘Squash Negative Stories’ About Obama“:

In a bid to ‘squash negative stories’ about Barack Obama that appear on the Internet, the White House has hired a dedicated propagandist whose role will be to savage people who tell “lies” about the President, in a chilling reminder of how prosecutors threatened people with jail time during the 2008 campaign if they criticized Obama.

“The Obama administration has created and staffed a new position tucked inside their communications shop for helping coordinate rapid response to unfavorable stories and fostering and improving relations with the progressive online community,” reports the Huffington Post.

The man tasked with the role of “disseminating push back” against Obama’s online critics by direct order of the White House will be Jesse Lee, a blogger who has previously put out White House spin in response to claims made by Glenn Beck.

“The post is a new one for this White House. Rapid response has been the purview of the Democratic National Committee (and will continue to be). Lee’s hire, however, suggests that a portion of it will now be handled from within the administration. It also signals that the White House will be adopting a more aggressive engagement in the online world in the months ahead.”

[…] “If you’re going to post something online about Obama that isn’t true, Lee is going to be the one to handle you,” reports Chris O’Shea, noting that the move is about “squashing any negative stories” that could derail Obama’s re-election bid.

Lee obviously sees himself taking the role of ‘Terminator’ in destroying ‘conspiracies’ and ‘disinformation’ about the Obama 2012 campaign, similar to how Obama-supporting prosecutors and sheriffs in Missouri threatened people with jail time for telling “lies” about Obama during the 2008 campaign. News agencies in Pennsylvania and Ohio were also sent threatening letters demanding they stop airing ads exposing Obama’s anti-gun stance.

This has nothing to do with circulating “lies” about Obama, this is about intimidating, silencing and smearing anyone who dares tell the truth about Obama’s record or his highly dubious personal history.

Fellow conservative bloggers! You are forewarned!
Put on the armor of God and get ready for the Battle of Helm’s Deep against the onslaught of Orcs and Uruk’hai.
