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.”

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.

Clinton Lawyer Seeks To Block Recount In North Carolina

He’s trying to cover something up. At the end of the video we learn that a bunch of ballots mysteriously showed up giving the Democrat the win.

Elias and Clinton

Elias and Clinton

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.

dems-turned-the-osu-knife-attack-into-a-gun-control-debate-the-daily-caller

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

Had he been somewhere else on campus the students would have been sitting ducks, easy prey – unless some had been armed and trained. That is one change I can support.

If Sold They Can Collect Property Tax On Them

The problem is, like Detroit, They can’t give them away.

The wording on the headline makes one wonder. Are they trying to sell them for $1 each or a dollar for them all?

“4,000 vacant lots on sale for $1 to Chicago homeowners”

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.”

“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.”

Looks Like We Didn’t Make The List

The Washington POS has quoted this List.

There are about 200 sites on the list. The Real Revo is not one of them – yet.

An Initial Set of Sites That Reliably Echo Russian Propaganda”

tinfoil-hat

We have used a combination of manual and automated analysis, including analysis of content, timing, technical indicators, and other reporting, in order to initially identify (“red-flag”) the following as Russian propaganda outlets. We then confirmed our initial assessment by applying whatever criteria we did not originally employ during the red-flag process, and we reevaluate our findings as needed.

Please note that our criteria are behavioral. That means the characteristics of the propaganda outlets we identify are motivation-agnostic. For purposes of this definition it does not matter whether the sites listed here are being knowingly directed and paid by Russian intelligence officers, or whether they even knew they were echoing Russian propaganda at any particular point: If they meet these criteria, they are at the very least acting as bona-fide “useful idiots” of the Russian intelligence services, and are worthy of further scrutiny.”

There Is An Ugly Side To Permissive Drug Laws

Vancouver, B.C., Canada is seeing it. The CBC did this piece on the difficulties there.

Permissiveness is a hallmark of libertarian doctrine. Here we see the results. Once permissive drug acceptance is instituted what does society do? Do we write these drug users off as volunteer Darwinists?

I am heartened that the video shows a group of volunteers working to help the overdosed drug users but are they doing them any favors?

Hat tip to Kate who says this:

I’ve returned to my hometown of Vancouver for a few days and am shocked and bewildered by what I’m seeing. There are marijuana shops all over the city now, many spouting the drug as some sort of miracle medical potion. Many storefronts along Granville Mall are boarded up. Then this report appeared on CBC’s The National last night:

For years the “brilliant minds” at Insite promised us that their way would solve the drug problem in the city. They sought to destroy anyone who suggested that abstinence based treatment programs were the answer.”

You Told Them You Would Eliminate Their Jobs. Duh!

Eliminate their jobs, take their guns, and make everything more expensive.

Do you think Democrats will learn from this? Me neither. Their leaders are driven by ideology and not the wishes of their constituents.

“House Democrats lament blue-collar collapse”

braddock-pa

Democrats’ shrinking ranks of House members from blue-collar districts watched glumly as President-elect Donald Trump ran up the score in their backyards earlier this month, fearing their party is forfeiting wide swaths of America — and with it, any prospect of taking the House for years to come.”

[..]

“Someone said, ‘When it comes to trade, and the need for changing the way we do politics, and [that] the system is fixed for the benefit of few and the expense of many, you sound a lot like Trump,’” Nolan said. “I said, ‘No, Trump sounds like me.’ And that has been who I am for a long time.”

As Sure As Night Follows Day…

So, will millenials riot over this? Probably.

Machines like this will make service faster and more accurate. McDonalds started out with a goal: Produce food fast and cheap. Now they are neither fast nor cheap – and their burgers make me feel like I have eaten a croquet ball.

“McDonald’s Reacts To $15 Minimum Wage, Announce All U.S. Stores To Be Automated”

mcdonalds-robots

This post comes from the “Department Of I Told You So.” Back in August we reported that a Heritage Foundation study looked at the effect of the $15.00 minimum wage on a state by state basis the progressive program would put between 7 and 9,000,000 Americans out of work. The first indication that the unemployment wave may be happening is the latest news that McDonald’s is planning to expand its digital self-serve ordering stations and table service to all of its 14,000 stores in the U.S.”

An Honest Muslim Leader

“MUSLIM LEADER IN US: “ISLAM IS NOT HERE TO INTEGRATE. ISLAM IS HERE TO DOMINATE””

tharir

Haitham Ibn Thbait, of the American chapter of Hizb Ut-Tahrir, told American Muslims earlier this year that Islam was not here to integrate, but rather to dominate.

The problem with their system is not the scores of dead. It is deeper than that. It is their secular faith. It is in direct opposition with our creed, when Allah says: “Legislation belongs to none other than Allah.”

Wacko Leftists Are Calling Sen. Jeff Sessions A Racist

Why? Because he’s from Alabama? Because he was named for a Confederate hero? No. Those are just their excuses. They just don’t want a conservative to be Attorney General.

Just look at how racist Sen. Sessions has been in the past:

sessions3

sessions1

Jeff Sessions is going to be the next Attorney General of the United States. The Senate Democrats, having scrapped the filibuster on nominations, have no way to stop him. Will these pictures stop him?

They show Jeff Sessions marching in the streets with… wait for it … no seriously, wait for it… civil rights icon John Lewis.

[…]

That’s right. The media wants you to think Jeff Sessions is some sort of Alabamian unrepentant racist, but in fact Jeff Sessions has a long history of fighting segregation in Alabama, seeking the death penalty for KKK members, and marching with civil rights leaders to commemorate and honor the 50th anniversary of the march at Selma.”

Of course. He’s a Republican. It has been Republicans who have supported equality for blacks. It has been Democrats who have opposed it.

Michelle Rhee To Head Trump Education Department?

We reported on Ms. Rhee back in 2009. She was always supportive of Charter Schools during her time heading the Chancellor of the Washington D.C. public schools. She is now married to the man who is Mayor of Sacramento, California. According to KCRA in Sacramento she is on President-Elect Trump’s short list to head the Department of Education. Teacher’s unions of course oppose her.

President-elect Donald Trump will be meeting with Sacramento First Lady Michelle Rhee as a potential candidate for secretary of education.

Danielle Hagen with Trump’s administration confirmed the meeting will take place in New Jersey on Saturday.

[…]

Rhee is widely known as the former chancellor for Washington, D.C., public schools, fighting the teachers’ union as she made a polarizing push for charter schools and voucher programs.

“Michelle Rhee was a disaster in Washington D.C. She supported independent, privately-run charters — sometimes for-profit,” Sacramento City Teachers Association Vice President Davis Fisher said. “Pretty much used private school rules and public money to continue the have and have-nots.”

Michael Banerian, 22, of Oakland County, Michigan, is one of that state’s 16 official electors who will meet in the state capital of Lansing on Dec. 19 to cast their votes for Trump. He told the Detroit News Thursday he has received threatening emails, lots of them, from people telling him to vote for Democrat Clinton instead of the GOP victor he is pledged to support. Trump won Michigan’s popular vote and should be able to count on the 16 electoral votes in that state.”
