Some Abortion Facts

November 13th, 2018 Viewed 82 times, 4 so far today

Did you know, that in England and Wales, nearly 25% of all pregnancies are terminated by means of abortion? Six million, in fact, since 1967. For more, check out Alive and Kicking, the campaign to make abortions rare in the UK.

Sweden stats: 35,000 abortions per year. (check on that it said 35.000)

As for the United States, an article on the Supreme Court’s recent upholding of the partial birth abortion ban stated the following:

More than 1 million abortions are performed in the United States each year, according to recent statistics. Nearly 90 percent of those occur in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, and are not affected by Tuesday’s ruling.

Worldwide abortion stats:

  • 46 million per year
  • 126,000 per day
  • 64.4% of all abortions are performed on never-married women
  • 18.4% of all abortions are performed on married women
  • 9.4% of all abortions are performed on divorced women
  • 93% of all women say their decision to have an abortion was a social decision (i.e. the child is unwanted or inconvenient)
  • 47% of all abortions are performed on women who have already had one or more abortions

Voting Irregularities in Florida

November 12th, 2018 Viewed 68 times, 4 so far today

John Fund points out that there should be a lot more media attention paid toward Florida:

In [Florida,] Republican governor and Senate candidate Rick Scott’s lawsuit against Democratic Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher, the county court found that Bucher was illegally withholding over-votes and under-votes from the county canvassing board and barring public viewing of the counting.

Gov. Scott also filed a lawsuit against Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes last Thursday, alleging that her office was hiding information about the number of ballots left to be counted. Again, a county court ruled in his favor as Snipes kept “discovering” new ballots.

Despite these clear rulings, the Sunday morning programs on ABC News and NBC News ignored the court orders. While it’s certainly true that claims of election irregularities and fraud shouldn’t be blindly reported, the media has an obligation to pay attention to the context.

Florida was the epicenter of the issues of Bush v. Gore back in 2000, and I can’t remember an election where one wondered what they’d end up with in an electoral contest.

Now with ballots supposedly in AVIS rental cars, in a moving truck, and in a elementary school storage area and election supervisors with convictions of removing ballots, while not even including the fact that the Dem’s lawyers want illegal immigrant’s votes counted— this reeks of corruption.

Will this be enough to force Voter ID?

Abortion-Inducing Drugs

September 13th, 2018 Viewed 379 times, 5 so far today

In her latest article on the Kavanaugh nomination, Ann Althouse discusses the question about what exactly birth control is supposed to do. Much of the pro-life movement wants to distance itself from the birth control discussion for obvious reasons; however, there is a link.

In the mind of many, abortion is just another form of birth control, only instead of preventing conception, fertilization or implantation, the abortion component of the debate has been limited to discussing the medical procedure needed to remove a baby/fetus from the womb after the pregnancy is discovered.

Has Trump Been Successful In Implementing His Agenda?

August 24th, 2018 Viewed 333 times, 5 so far today

In the middle of a discussion I was having on Twitter regarding whether it was right for the Department of Justice to have a guideline not to indict a sitting President, I broached the idea that the reason that we are even having this conversation is that there are many people that believe that Pres. Trump should be indicted and jailed. They are furious that no one will stop him using this means, mostly because they know that the Republican Congress and Senate will not impeach and convict him, so they believe that if they could get an indictment or, better yet a criminal conviction, then the Republicans would have to get rid of him.

This has been in back of the Russian Collusion narrative, the Stormy Daniels affair and the rest– the idea that there needs to be something, anything that can remove Trump from office.

#QAnon Implies That Everything Ties to the Clinton Foundation

August 21st, 2018 Viewed 299 times, 3 so far today

Part of the reason for so many people following QAnon is the fact that some of the things that are shared there are believable. I’m not saying that everything there is 100% truth– anyone who has followed for some time will state that some of what is said by Q is misinformation and what is not is cryptic at best.

Occasionally the links from Q are much less cryptic, as what has happened today, as Q links to a Reddit post that puts a lot of the puzzle pieces together into a coherent, believable whole:

Supreme Court Selection

July 10th, 2018 Viewed 358 times, 4 so far today

So last night, President Trump announced his selection to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Everyone knew it was going to be a show, because we have a President who used to run a reality television show and knows how to play the media. A few observations.

Human Rights Council Sham

June 20th, 2018 Viewed 223 times, 2 so far today

Much has been made about the U.S. leaving the Human Right’s Council. Last week, when President Trump met with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, many were upset that by him being present he normalized this radical leader. They said that he shouldn’t have met with him because of his terrible record with his people. These same people are now decrying leaving a group which has known human rights violators on the council and see no disconnect:

We have no doubt that there was once a noble vision for this council. But today, we need to be honest – the Human Rights Council is a poor defender of human rights.

Worse than that, the Human Rights Council has become an exercise in shameless hypocrisy – with many of the world’s worst human rights abuses going ignored, and some of the world’s most serious offenders sitting on the council itself.

The only thing worse than a council that does almost nothing to protect human rights is a council that covers for human rights abuses and is therefore an obstacle to progress and an impediment to change. The Human Rights Council enables abuses by absolving wrongdoers through silence and falsely condemning those who have committed no offense. A mere look around the world today demonstrates that the council has failed in its stated objectives.

Its membership includes authoritarian governments with unambiguous and abhorrent human rights records, such as China, Cuba, and Venezuela.

Is Trump Using the Media Again?

June 19th, 2018 Viewed 219 times, 2 so far today

Color me skeptical, but I highly doubt that no one in the Administration thought about the optics of the child deportation and decided to stand against this onslaught without considering how bad it would play on the media. It’s obvious that the message the Administration is sending is “Don’t think you’ll be able to get into the U.S. by bringing your children with you.” The media are playing their part by amplifying the message– all day coverage of “how could Trump do this?” only serves to get the message across– and when the Administration says “it’s the law, we can’t do anything about it” you know that they are telegraphing “No, we’re not going to change our policy.”

We’ve rarely, if ever, see the Trump Administration change course based on what the Main Stream Media has called forth, so it’s doubtful that this will work either, especially since the administration is reacting to being called out by the Bushes and Obamas, so my guess is that they are probably trying to pressure both the illegal immigrants (don’t come here, you’ll lose your kids) and Congress (Democrats say they want to do something, but they don’t) to take action.

Only time will tell if this will work.

QAnon and The Omnibus Spending Package

March 26th, 2018 Viewed 591 times, 3 so far today

In a recent post, I introduced the insider named “QAnon” taken from the Q anonymous writer on the 8chan boards. With Friday’s signing of the biggest spending bill of Trump’s presidency, one would believe that Q would show up, and he did.

On Friday, he published that he was updating his tripcode– a code assigned at login to help verify that the user is who they say they are, as all users on 8chan can post anonymously. Some have speculated that some rogue actors are close to discovering the old one, so Q has announced a new one. Another interesting side note here is that there have been a lot of fake Q postings on Twitter lately, something that enhances Q’s reputation, as many will call out these fakes fairly quickly.

Who or What is QAnon?

March 22nd, 2018 Viewed 1029 times, 5 so far today

Anyone that has been around the Internet for a while knows that it is ripe for conspiracy theories. If anything, the fact that anonymous people from all over the world can post things, link things, and use the fact that people are preconditioned to believe certain things to get their point across. We should all be very skeptical of these things, as we should with everything we can’t verify.

Between 2016 and today, a few different anons (all users and 4chan and later 8chan start out as anonymous) appeared to have inside information into things that were happening in and around the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America. Some of them claimed to be part of the NYPD or NY FBI branch, claiming to have information that was on Anthony Weiner’s laptop, videos of Hillary Clinton, or worse– confirmation of pizzagate conspiracy that claimed highly powerful people were behind a human trafficking ring centered on pizza parlors, code words, and Satanic rituals. As of this writing, while there has been a number of arrests in human trafficking rings around the United States, there’s no evidence to support pizzagate, but that doesn’t stop people from capitalizing on it.
