Senate Democrats vote for infanticide

Jeremiah 19: 3-5

Thus saith the LORD of hosts….
Behold, I will bring evil upon this place….
Because they have forsaken me, and…
have filled this place with the blood of innocents.

Yesterday, a bill introduced by Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) against infanticide by ensuring that babies who are born alive after botched abortions are provided medical care and treatment, failed 53-44 because every Democrat except three voted against it.

The bill, S. 130 – Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was introduced by Sen. Sasse on January 15, 2019, in response to laws recently passed in New York and Virginia legalizing abortion of not just late-term (third trimester) unborn humans, but post-birth (“after labor”) abortions. Similar moves are being made in Illinois and Vermont.

To that end, S. 130 states that its purpose is “To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit a health care practitioner from failing to exercise the proper degree of care in the case of a child who survives an abortion or attempted abortion.”

S. 130 furthermore states that “If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws” because “Any infant born alive after an abortion or within a hospital, clinic, or other facility has the same claim to the protection of the law that would arise for any newborn, or for any person who comes to a hospital, clinic, or other facility for screening and treatment or otherwise becomes a patient within its care.”

Accordingly, “Any health care practitioner present at the time the child is born alive shall—

“(A) exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age; and

“(B) following the exercise of skill, care, and diligence required under subparagraph (A), ensure that the child born alive is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital….

Whoever intentionally performs or attempts to perform an overt act that kills a child born alive described under subsection (a), shall be punished as under section 1111 of this title for intentionally killing or attempting to kill a human being.”

S. 130, with 48 co-sponsors, all Republicans, needed 60 votes to pass, but received only 53 “yes” votes:

  • Every Democrat, except Senators Joe Manchin (WVa), Bob Casey (PA) and Doug Jones (AL), voted against the bill, i.e., voted for infanticide:
    • Among the Demonrats who voted in favor of infanticide were every Democrat senator running for president in 2020: Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders.
  • Every Republican except three voted for the bill:
    • Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who supports abortion, did not vote.
    • Pro-life Republican Senators Tim Scott and Kevin Cramer, who would have voted “yes,” did not vote because they were absent due to flight delays.

During the debate on S. 130, Demonrats made false claims about the bill — that it would ban abortions or ban late-term abortions; that the bill hated women; and that abortion is about women’s health. (LifeNews)

But S. 130 is not about banning abortions, late-term or otherwise. Nor is S. 130 about women; it’s about babies who survive an abortion. Nor is S. 130 about women’s health; it’s about the health and the life of babies. Nor does S. 130 hate women. On the contrary, the bill goes out of its way to protect women whose babies survive an abortion by specifying that “The mother of a child born alive described under subsection (a) may not be prosecuted for a violation of this section, an attempt to violate this section, a conspiracy to violate this section, or an offense under section 3 or 4 of this title based on such a violation.”

Don’t believe me? Read S. 130 for yourself, here. It’s not long — only one page.

There are some who suspect the Demonrats’ bloodlust to abort late-term unborn and outright kill babies who survive abortions, may have something to do with the lucrative sale of baby parts for “scientific” research and who knows what else.

In fact, in 2017, as a result of Center for Medical Progress’ undercover video exposés, two California companies, DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, were fined and ordered to shut down for illegally trafficking world-wide in aborted baby parts (tissues and organs) obtained from Planned Parenthood of Orange County.

Most recently, on February 13, 2019, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested Roberto and William Isaías, wealthy Ecuadorian brothers who were principals in DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics. The brothers donated $90,000 to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, and were given asylum in the U.S. by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton’s State Department also rebuffed attempts by Ecuador to extradite the brothers to face justice for running their Ecuadorian bank into the ground, illictly profiting from government bailout funds, and wiping out the life savings of thousands of families.

Unreal.

Child sacrifices unto Baal,
Albany is become Sodom.
The Hudson
Is a river of venom,
In the Valley of Slaughter.

Big heap no surprise: Elizabeth Warren plans to run for president in 2020

Her odds of winning: 1/1024.

From NY Post: Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday announced her intention to run for president in 2020 as a champion of middle-class Americans and a foe of big banks and Wall Street fat cats.

Warren, who said she was creating an exploratory committee that will allow her to raise funds and hire staffers, will be among a crowded field of Democrats taking a shot at the White House.

“America’s middle class is under attack,” Warren said in a four-minute, 30-second video posted to YouTube. “How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a bigger slice.”

In the video, the 69-year-old former law professor lays out her vision of the future, while setting herself up as a foil to President Trump and members of his administration.

“I’ve spent my career getting to the bottom of why America’s promise works for some families, but others who work just as hard slip through the cracks into disaster,” she says. “What I’ve found is terrifying. These aren’t cracks that families are falling into, they’re traps.”

The Republican National Committee dismissed Warren’s candidacy, saying her “out of touch” agenda poses no threat to Trump. “With her lack of support from voters – including in her home state – on top of her phony claim to minority status, now that she is formally running Americans will see her for what she is: another extreme far-left obstructionist and a total fraud,” Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.

The president, who has announced that he will seek re-election in 2020, has trashed Warren in the past for her claims that she is partly Native American, referring to her as “Pocahontas.”

Warren in October released DNA testing results that showed there was “strong evidence” that she has Native American blood. The release was intended to quell questions about her heritage but prompted criticism from Native American leaders and left some supported puzzled why she would rekindle the controversy.

A number of Democrats are expected to announce presidential campaigns in the next few months, including former Vice President Joe Biden and Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who lost a Senate bid in November to GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, are also weighing getting in the race.

Trump-bashing Puerto Rican mayor facing FBI corruption probe

puerto rico mayor cruz

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz: Her t-shirt speaks volumes


This comes as no surprise. As most people know, Puerto Rico (run by demorats) has an “unshakable culture of corruption.”
From Fox News: The mayor of Puerto Rico who shot to international fame after criticizing President Trump for not doing enough to help Hurricane Maria victims is being investigated by the FBI on corruption charges, according to multiple news outlets.
San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and her administration are under fire for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims of the category-4 hurricane that leveled much of the tiny U.S. territory nearly nine months ago.
The FBI reportedly launched the investigation following a February lawsuit filed by Yadira Molina, the former director of procurement. Molina claims she was retaliated against for reporting “alleged irregular acts” to the local comptroller.
“On February 21, Molina sued the city council after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping division in the town hall under the administration of Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz Soto,” according to El Vocero de Puerto Rico.
The report says Molina claims she was punished for reporting on the allegedly rigged system and that she was blocked from her right “to report wrongdoing in her capacity as a private citizen, not as a public employee.”
Shortly after Cruz became mayor, Molina claims a supply company was granted “preferred supplier” status which paid them more than three times what regular suppliers made. She also alleges that other city officials engaged in a corrupt scheme to steer business the preferred supplier’s way.
Concerns about Cruz are not new. There has been a growing backlash from frustrated residents who say they feel forgotten and say the mayor’s personal political ambitions are coming at the expense of the very people she’s supposed to be representing.
For example, at a time when residents needed food, water and shelter, Cruz hired extra photographers to follow her around post-storm. “She comes out, goes on television and pats herself on the back,” Simon Menendez, a small business owner in San Juan, told Fox News. “It stopped being about us a long time ago.”
A bartender at a popular hotel in Old San Juan told Fox she feels like a political pawn. But complaints from constituents are largely being ignored.
Instead, Cruz’s feud with the president over recovery efforts have turned her into a liberal star – and it’s a role she seems to be relishing. Her global close-up has morphed into a parade of self-promotion.
She’s showed up on numerous television shows – including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert – and scored a high-profile invite to the State of the Union as the guest of New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. She was also featured on Time magazine as one of the most influential people of 2018.
Last month, she traveled to Connecticut to receive the “Latina Champion” award at the Latinas & Power Symposium, which promotes Hispanic professional women. She then went on to Boston to receive an honorary doctorate and give the baccalaureate address at Boston University.
Back home in Puerto Rico, officials say the island remains in desperate need of help and is woefully unprepared should another storm hit soon. Among other things, there is little to no water or diesel fuel for generators. This year’s hurricane season started June 1.
A new Harvard University study published in the New England Journal of Medicine estimates the number of people who died in Puerto Rico as the result of Maria could top 4,600. The official number issued by the U.S. territory is 64.
Multiple attempted to reach Cruz were unsuccessful.
An FBI spokesperson said the agency does not comment on ongoing investigations.

Demorats propose ban on assault weapons

molon labe
Maybe demorats should start by having their precious federal government enforce current laws. Oh wait, we know how much they really care about following the law
From NY Post: Nearly two dozen Democratic senators, including Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, introduced a bill on Wednesday to ban the sale of military-style assault weapons and bump stock devices like the one used in the Las Vegas massacre, saying it “will begin removing the weapons of war on our streets.”
“We’re introducing an updated assault weapons ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for a debate and a vote,” said a statement released by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif).
The legislation calls for a ban on the “sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name,” but allows owners to keep their existing weapons.
The measure also proposes to ban “bump-fire stocks and other devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at fully automatic rates.”
The madman who opened fire on an open-air concert in Las Vegas last month outfitted his weapons with a bump-fire stock that allowed him to turn his semi-automatic rifles into rapid-fire weapons and spray thousands of rounds in the span of about 10 minutes. He killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more in the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
Five weeks later, a deranged Air Force veteran opened fire on a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, using an AR-15-style assault rifle. He emptied 15 magazines and killed 26 congregants.
Democrats called on their Republican counterparts to begin a discussion on gun violence after the killings, but GOP lawmakers and President Trump responded it was “too soon” after the tragedy and would be “disrespectful to the dead.”
Trump initially said the church shooting “isn’t a gun situation” it is “a mental health problem” then rejected calls for stepped up background checks.
Asked about “extreme vetting” for gun buyers while on an overseas trip this week in South Korea, he said: “If you did what you’re suggesting, there would have been no difference three days ago and you might not have had that very brave person who happens to have a gun or a rifle in his trunk.”
The Democrats’ legislation also calls for a ban of assault weapons that take a “detachable ammunition magazine and has a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock.”
It says 2,200 types of guns used for “hunting, household defense or recreational purposes” will be exempted.
This bill won’t stop every mass shooting, but it will begin removing these weapons of war from our streets,” the statement reads. “Yes, it will be a long process to reduce the massive supply of these assault weapons in our country, but we’ve got to start somewhere.”
Feinstein and the Democrats introduced a bill in 2013 with similar provisions after the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012 but it was defeated in the Senate by a 60-40 vote.
