Texas Requires Giving Aborted Fetuses Proper Burials…

… And Pro-Abortion People are Going Nuts. The childish among them are pushing for women to send blood-soaked tampons to the Governor’s office. You can bet this silly action will not sway Governor Abbott.

The new rule, introduced in July by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, requires that abortion facilities, hospitals and other medical centers either cremate or bury the remains of aborted and miscarried babies. State officials said the rule does not apply to miscarriages or abortions that take place at home.

The commission finalized the rule in late November. It is scheduled to go into effect on Dec. 19.


More states are moving to require dignified burials of aborted babies’ bodies after undercover videos revealed evidence that Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities may be selling aborted babies’ body parts. The Center for Medical Progress videos prompted a number of states and the U.S. House to open investigations into the matter.

In Ohio, the state attorney general’s investigation found that Planned Parenthood was “steam cooking” aborted babies’ bodies before dumping them in landfills. A state investigation in South Carolina also caught Planned Parenthood facilities illegally dumping aborted babies’ bodies in public landfills, and fined them for it.”

It’s About Time

The best line in the article is this, “Emanuel… has no real bargaining power in the equation because he’s on the wrong side of the law.”

If the new President Trump only reinstates respect for, and adherence to, the law he will accomplish a lot. The tactic the Obama administration adopted, ignoring laws they did not agree with, has done a great deal to make the country less safe and more lawless.

“The Coming Sanctuary Cities Crackdown”

“Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel begs President-elect Trump for leniency.”

Emanuel (D), who used to be a congressman and then President Obama’s chief of staff, dropped by Trump Tower in New York on Wednesday to urge President-elect Donald Trump to abandon his campaign promise to crack down on sanctuary cities.

“I also spoke out strongly about what it means to be a sanctuary city who will support and secure the people who are here, like my grandfather who came to the city of Chicago as a 13-year old 100 years ago,” said Emanuel who actually has no real bargaining power in the equation because he’s on the wrong side of the law.”

SPLC Endorses ‘Newspeak’

The function of the imposition of ‘Newspeak’ in George Orwell’s novel, 1984, was to control language and thus control the people. Actual thinking was discouraged and the people were subjected to regular propaganda.

This is now happening because the left’s dearest, the Southern Poverty Law Center, has decided to add far-left wing killers to their list of right-wing terrorists so they can inflate the numbers.

The list would be short if they didn’t apply a little creativity. Their definition of “The Right” was stretched beyond the breaking point to include Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, Luqman Ameen Abdullah, Micah Xavier Johnson, and Gavin Eugene Long.

Mateen killed 50 at an Orlando night club on behalf of the Islamic State. His fellow jihadist Abdullah was an imam who died in a shootout with the FBI.

Johnson was a black supremacist who killed five Dallas police officers while deranged by the sort of propaganda that is peddled by Black Lives Matter and the SPLC. Long, who killed three cops in Baton Rouge, was a former member of Nation of Islam. Both appear to have been motivated by hatred of white people.

Surprisingly, Floyd Corkins Jr., who planned to murder people at the offices of the Family Research Center and rub Chick-fil-A sandwiches in their faces on behalf of militant sexual depravity, does not seem to have made the list of right-wing terrorists.”

Even so, the leftists in the media still regularly cite reports from SPLC as though they were unbiased.

“Southern Poverty Law Center Characterizes Muslim and Black Supremacist Killers as Right Wing”

The SPLC maintains a list called “Terror from the Right,” which according to them is “a synopsis of radical-right terrorist plots, conspiracies and racist rampages since the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.”

Valerie Jarrett Claims To have A Soul

But you and I know better. She is a vindictive, conniving woman who was born in Iran, who wants only what is worst for the United States. She has been the shadow President during Obama’s two terms, allowing him to take six hours off every few days to play a round of golf or to vacation in Hawaii for the shaved ice.

“You are such a good boy.”

“Valerie Jarrett: Trump’s Win Was ‘Soul-Crushing’”

One of President Obama’s top advisers said on Wednesday that Donald Trump’s electoral win was “soul-crushing.”

‘Those Who Do Not Know History Are Doomed To Repeat It’

The above is a quote from George Santayana. It is a very telling and true maxim. Our country is heading toward this doom because our schools no longer teach history to our children.

That’s a good subject for a post but this is better. The Democratic National Committee is leaning toward making moonbat Keith Ellison their leader. Besides being closely connected to the racist and hateful Nation of Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood, Ellison has also called for the establishment of a state with no white people in it.

Here he mistakenly blames Germany for the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

He really does live in a World Of His Own.


The Electoral College For The Win

In a piece in the National Review, titled, ‘The Electoral College Prevents California from Imposing Imperial Rule on the Country’, Michael Barone notes what we observed a couple of weeks ago. Hillary Clinton’s claim that she got more popular votes than did Donald Trump is true but the extra votes came primarily from far-left California. She received all of California’s electoral votes but the Electoral College did what it was designed to do. It prevented one populous state from dominating American politics.

One state’s domination of national elections is exactly what the Framers’ strove against.”

So, How Does Joe Get Away With It?



Trump Chose Taiwan On Purpose

He has said all along that the trade deficit needed to be balanced. He intends to place tariffs on merchandise that is not manufactured in the United States. To Americans that puts China’s exports in the center of the crosshairs. Whether we agree with what Mr. Trump intends to do or not, it looks like he’s going to do what he promised. Even before being sworn in as President he has indicated that the relationship between the US and China is going to change and he, rather than Beijing, will be setting the rules.

The Washington Pos has an article titled, “Trump’s Taiwan phone call was long planned, say people who were involved”.

Donald Trump’s protocol-breaking telephone call with Taiwan’s leader was an intentionally provocative move that establishes the incoming president as a break with the past, according to interviews with people involved in the planning.

The historic communication — the first between leaders of the United States and Taiwan since 1979 — was the product of months of quiet preparations and deliberations among Trump’s advisers about a new strategy for engagement with Taiwan that began even before he became the Republican presidential nominee, according to people involved in or briefed on the talks.”

Trump is shaking things up. You can bet that China’s leaders are huddling and trying to figure out a way that they can handle him so they can have the kind of control over US policy that they have enjoyed since the 1970’s when Jimmy Carter gave it to them.

If President-Elect Trump is planning to shake things up both here and abroad, like he has indicated, he will have to do things like this. He will have to take chances and spit in the bully’s eye. The hand-wringing in the media has already begun and will become cacophonous.

As an aside, this tariff will have a powerful effect on companies like Wal-Mart that sell primarily Chinese made products.


Jill Stein Accelerates Her Scam Of Leftist Donors

"Just think about all  those millions"

“Just think about all those millions”

Stein has initiated a fund-raising for her imaginary recount efforts in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. At first she said she needed to raise a million and a half. Every few days she increased the amount she said was necessary, even though no one has been able to provide any evidence that there was even a smidgen of vote fraud.

Rush Limbaugh reported that Stein has told followers and donors that not all the money raised will be used to fund the recount. But still she wants more.


Interestingly, the Green Party candidate’s efforts to raise money for this are not supported by the actual Green Party.

“Green Party Rebels Against Jill Stein: “We Do Not Support The Recount””

In a letter penned by Green Party Senate Candidate Margaret Flowers, and signed by dozens of prominent GPUS members, the Greens have rebelled against the farcical “recount effort” conducted by Jill Stein, saying “while we support electoral reforms, including how the vote is counted, we do not support the current recount being undertaken by Jill Stein.”

The reason for this is that as the author notes, “as a candidate, Dr. Stein has the right to call for a recount. However, we urge the GPUS to distance itself from any appearance of support for either Democrats or Republicans. We are well aware of the undemocratic actions taken during the primaries by the DNC and the Clinton campaign. Greens cannot be perceived to be allied with such a party.”

Someone Please Convince Me That The Gatlinburg Fire Is Not A Terrorist Act

A week or so ago there was a fire in Israel that was set by Muslim sympathizers. They have footage from security cameras that show the fires being set. Now we have wildfires in the Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge area that are out of control.

Not surprisingly the group Al Qaeda produced back in 2012 several issues of their ‘Inspire’ magazine that shows and tells militants how to start fires.

The results were a Democrat won by a very small margin under questionable circumstances.

An attorney for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign who advocated for and joined 2016 Green Party presidential nominee Dr. Jill Stein’s recount effort is now urging North Carolina’s Republican governor to halt his own process.

Incumbent Gov. Patrick McCrory is currently trailing his Democratic challenger, Attorney General Roy Cooper III, by about 9,000 votes.

Attorney Marc Erik Elias says that is enough of a margin that should convince McCrory to concede”

It Is Time For Meaningful Changes To Gun Laws

After the attempted killings on the Ohio State University campus where the perpetrator used a car and a knife, morons on the left are calling for changes to gun laws.



I agree. There should be changes. The proper change, as we have seen, is to outlaw gun-free zones. It was only the grace of God that placed campus police Officer Alan Horujko right at the scene of the crime.

Officer Alan Horujko saved lives

No, thank you

No, thank you

Chicago’s Large Lots Program, which sells vacant city-owned parcels to nearby homeowners for $1 each, is getting a lot larger.

More than 4,000 vacant lots will be put up for sale in 33 communities on the South and West sides, beginning Tuesday. Eligible buyers must own property on the same block as the vacant lot, be current on their property taxes and have no outstanding debt to the city.”

Lastly, for all of Castro’s ranting about the exploitive nature of capitalism, it takes a truly mercenary mind to come up with the schemes his regime employed to garner hard currency — from drug-running, to assassinations to, well, vampiric behavior. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights reported in 1966 that 166 Cuban prisoners were executed on a single day in May of that year. But before they were killed, they were forced to undergo the forced extraction of an average of seven pints of blood from their bodies. This blood was sold to Communist Vietnam at a rate of $50 per pint. Those who underwent the bloodletting suffered cerebral anemia and a state of unconsciousness and paralysis. But that didn’t stop the executions; the victims were carried on a stretcher to the killing field where they were then shot.”

“The Kremlin Didn’t Sink Hillary—Obama Did”

“Democratic panic about Russian disinformation neglects to mention that it was the White House that refused to stop it”

Old And In The Way

Old And In The Way

The Washington Pos reported this week that Kremlin-backed websites pushed “fake news” regularly portraying Hillary and the Democrats in a negative light. There’s really nothing new here for anybody who’s followed Russian propaganda for any length of time. Kremlin agitprop aimed at the West—properly termed disinformation—contains an amalgam of fact and fiction, plus lots of gray information somewhere in between which can be difficult and time-consuming to refute.


Yet again, President Obama’s unwillingness to confront Putin and his regime about anything—Syria, Ukraine, deploying nuclear missiles next to Poland—only encouraged the honey badger in the Kremlin to grow more adventurous and aggressive. By refusing to debunk noxious Russian lies, Obama encouraged Putin to tell more of them—including about Hillary Clinton. This culminated in the Russian intelligence operation which employed Wikileaks as a front to disseminate Democratic emails which had been intercepted by Moscow—as I told you months ago, and which the National Security Agency has recently admitted.”

Why Do Democrats Oppose Requiring ID To Vote?

“Poll: 13% of Illegal Aliens ADMIT They Vote”


Since 80 percent of noncitizens vote Democratic, according to the study, noncitizen participation could have “been large enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes [in North Carolina in 2008], and Congressional elections” such as the 2008 race in Minnesota in which Al Franken was elected to the U.S. Senate, giving “Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote” to pass Obamacare. The Old Dominion/George Mason study was sharply attacked by progressive critics, but the mounting evidence makes clear this is a real problem.”

“How Barack Obama wrecked the Democratic Party”


The collapse of the Democratic Party under Barack Obama occurred in three stages, each corresponding to a national response to Obama’s policy and political overreach.


In Stage One, the Democrats were decimated in the House of Representatives (and the carnage at the state level began). From Inauguration Day in 2009 until July 2010, the Obama White House oversaw the passage of 1) the stimulus package, the most expensive piece of legislation in American history; 2) the second half of the TARP-TALF financial-bailout bill; 3) the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory reforms; and 4) the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. Not since 1933 had there been a more aggressive legislative and regulatory agenda, and Obama’s determined march not only featured $2.7 trillion in new spending but the wholesale revision of the nation’s health-care system.

It was too much, too fast, too soon, and there was a national uprising against it that came to be known as the “Tea Party.” What resulted was a midterm in 2010 that cost the Democrats 63 House seats, the largest such defeat in 72 years.


Stage Two was the decimation of the Democratic Senate majority. In 2014, Democrats watched incumbent after incumbent swept away in a Republican wave eerily similar to the House wave four years earlier. In 2010, Democrats had held on to control of the Senate with candidates who received 29 million votes in aggregate even as the House was going Republican. In 2014, Democrats received 8.2 million fewer votes—a decline of 23 percent from 2010.


Stage Three only began on Election Night, and its contours are yet to be determined: the decimation of the Obama legacy itself.

One might say that it began, oddly enough, with Obama’s 2012 victory. He got his second term, yes, but for the first time in presidential history, received fewer votes in getting reelected than he had in his first run.”

Forget Taking The Presidency. Forget Owning Both Houses Of Congress.

The bureaucrats are in control. They have become the fourth and strongest branch of government in the United States – and they are unaccountable.

“The Bureaucracy Is Now More Powerful Than Congress”


Before Grimand, Congress had already begun giving administrative agencies power to formulate specific rules to implement Congress’ general policy objectives. But in Grimand, the Supreme Court gave such administrative rulings the full force of law, with delegation mushrooming since.

The result has been ever-growing power for federal bureaucrats, enacted through reams of rules, imposing massively large costs on Americans. But bureaucrats need not clearly spell out their policies and their consequences to the public, much less submit themselves for voter approval. And whenever a scandal reveals some regulatory abuse or failure, politicians hide from their responsibility by blaming the bureaucrats they delegated the power to and then failed to effectively oversee.”

“Scientists Accidentally Discover Efficient Process to Turn CO2 Into Ethanol”

The process is cheap, efficient, and scalable, meaning it could soon be used to remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.

The process is cheap, efficient, and scalable, meaning it could soon be used to remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee have discovered a chemical reaction to turn CO2 into ethanol, potentially creating a new technology to help avert climate change. Their findings were published in the journal ChemistrySelect. [Go here for a new in-depth interview about the findings with one of the lead researchers.]

The researchers were attempting to find a series of chemical reactions that could turn CO2 into a useful fuel, when they realized the first step in their process managed to do it all by itself. The reaction turns CO2 into ethanol, which could in turn be used to power generators and vehicles.”
