Some Sunday listening:
An old article from 2015 is circulating around voat about reports of Planned Parenthood keeping aborted babies alive to harvest organs. This is the hill worth dying on, folks. This is pure evil. And it is not debatable. Shame on any pro-choicer who defends funding this institution. Enough with the pleasantries. IT IS NOT OKAY TO KEEP BABIES ALIVE TO HARVEST THEIR ORGANS. I thought I was once pro-choice for very early abortions. No more. Via the article:
In an undercover video released Wednesday, a former technician for a tissue-harvesting company details how an aborted baby was kept alive so that its heart could be harvested at a California Planned Parenthood facility, raising more legal questions about the group’s practices.
Holly O’Donnell, a former blood and tissue procurement technician for the biotech startup StemExpress, also said she was asked to harvest an intact brain from the late-term, male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.
A StemExpress supervisor “gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face. And I can’t even describe what that feels like,” said Ms. O’Donnell, who has been featured in earlier videos by the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group that previously had released six undercover clips involving Planned Parenthoodpersonnel and practices.
And a little further down:
California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat, said the Center for Medical Progress, which is calling for the federal government to cease its $500 million a year support to Planned Parenthood and for it to be investigated.
“Today’s video is especially gruesome, and it shows, once again, the barbarity of what takes place at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country,” said Rep. Joseph R. Pitts, Pennsylvania Republican and chairman of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on health, one of several congressional panels investigating Planned Parenthood.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Utah Republican and chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Wednesday that all the videos are “disturbing,” and his committee’s investigation will look into whether “any federal funding supported transactions involving fetal tissue.”
“Top-level employees of Planned Parenthood admit to changing their procedures to harvest intact bodies of unborn children for body-part trafficking,” said Rep. Trent Franks, Arizona Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution and civil justice.
Mr. Franks and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, also said Wednesday that they have written to 58 Planned Parenthood affiliates. They are seeking 10 years of data about all abortions, late-term abortions, “born-alive” infants, fetal tissue collections and any modifications of abortion techniques to “increase the odds of preserving intact fetal tissue and organs.”
Five states — Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Utah and New Hampshire — already have defunded Planned Parenthood.
The video is posted below. It is a little gruesome at parts, especially from the 5′ 30″ mark going forward.
The article was from 2015. Planned Parenthood’s annual report from 2017-2018 shows that they are still well funded over half a billion dollars a year from the government. That is your tax money, folks.
This is what happens when you turn away from God. People can roll their eyes; once upon a time I would have too. But it is true. Since we have turned away from Christianity can we honestly say we are better off as a country? Have we really progressed as a society? No. Christianity instilled a moral compass that has been eroded to the point where you are shamed if you question the KILLING OF BABIES. Where some people will honestly justify this, like it is an acceptable moral position, saying a woman has a right to choose what to do with her body. NO. The moment you decide to make a bad decision, the moment you choose to get blackout drunk and sleep with someone you probably don’t even know, you have made your decision. When another life now depends on your own, you do not have the right to kill it. Shame on us for ever allowing it to come to this. Where we cannot even hold that moral position without caving to some BS about “my body my choice”. It is not progress to kill a human life because a woman wants carte blanche to sleep with as many partners as she wants and then not suffer any of the consequences of her actions. Even worse is that we are all paying for it. Why are we funding birth control measures? Why are we funding abortions? Yes, Planned Parenthood receives federal reimbursement through Medicaid. Medicaid covers abortions.
Enough is enough. Do not commit the sin of omission by sitting idly by knowing what you now know about the situation. Write your state representatives. Do not be afraid to call out pro-choicers, feminists, or anyone else who will try to justify this unjustifiable position. Vote out the politicians who support funding Planned Parenthood. Consider moving to states that will not fund this. The reasons continue to pile up for why I should leave California and move back to New Hampshire. California is at the very heart of all of this. We all need to step up and take action. Merely shaking our heads and saying how terrible it is is not enough. Spread the word.
A longtime American tradition ended Friday as the Boy Scouts of America officially changed its name to Scouts BSA. Now, girls ages 11 through 17 may join and participate in programs, including earning the Eagle Scout rank.
“For the first time in its 100+ year history, the iconic program of the Boy Scouts of America is open to both young men and young women,” the website states with a photo of girls accompanying the text.
“Scouts BSA is a year-round program for boys and girls in fifth grade through high school that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves,” the website reads.
The continued attack of our nation’s institutions from the SJWs plods on. This Breitbart commentator put it nicely:
A lot of people will say that is nonsense. But no, it is not. This is what they do. Chip away, chip away, chip away until they have everything and control everything so they can teach what they want and indoctrinate with their poison. The Boy Scouts caved to pressure and allowed gay members in 2013 and gay leaders in 2015. 2017 opened it up to transgenders. And 2019 is full-fledged female participation as well. And on some level this has nothing to do with gays or transgenders or girls. This isn’t an attack on them. It is an attack on the BSA for caving to pressure because of identity politics. And if I were a gambling man I would say the next thing they attack is the scout oath and scout law, which both allude to a duty to God. Because, you know, this is alienating the atheists. We cannot risk offending anybody!
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
The Scout Law has 12 points. Each is a goal for every Scout. A Scout tries to live up to the Law every day. It is not always easy to do, but a Scout always tries.
A Scout is:
TRUSTWORTHY. Tell the truth and keep promises. People can depend on you.
LOYAL. Show that you care about your family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and country.
HELPFUL. Volunteer to help others without expecting a reward.
FRIENDLY. Be a friend to everyone, even people who are very different from you.
COURTEOUS. Be polite to everyone and always use good manners.
KIND. Treat others as you want to be treated . Never harm or kill any living thing without good reason.
OBEDIENT. Follow the rules of your family, school, and pack. Obey the laws of your community and country.
CHEERFUL. Look for the bright side of life. Cheerfully do tasks that come your way. Try to help others be happy.
THRIFTY. Work to pay your own way. Try not to be wasteful. Use time, food, supplies, and natural resources wisely.
BRAVE. Face difficult situations even when you feel afraid. Do what you think is right despite what others might be doing or saying.
CLEAN. Keep your body and mind fit . Help keep your home and community clean.
REVERENT. Be reverent toward God. Be faithful in your religious duties. Respect the beliefs of others.
As with all institutions that kowtow to identity politics, this will likely kill off the institution once and for all. And given the extent of the metastases I say good riddance at this point. It is sad it had to come to this.
They are already dealing with a bunch of sexual abuse lawsuits. I cannot see the number of sexual lawsuits getting any smaller given the demographic of the group now.
The Girl Scouts are rightly disgruntled about this and have sued. Both institutions are probably done now. And whether you care about these institutions or not you should still care about how they’re being infested and ruined. This is how they operate. They infest. They are cancer. They have done it to the Boy Scouts, our schools, and our churches. Most people will think it is harmless: what does it matter if they allow <insert group here> into <insert institution here>. You think it stops there? No. They take control and then push an agenda that aligns with their ideology. Much like what is happening now with huge groups of immigrants coming in. You think they won’t push their own policies when they elect their own people into office? Of course not.
An opinion piece from AZCentral:
A few weeks ago, I attended a holiday party at a downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around to view the photographs on the wall.
Then a photograph caught my attention.
Friends said, “It’s coal miners at a pub after work.” It was a photograph of coal miners with blackened faces. I asked a Latinx and white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners at a pub after work. Then they stepped back, frowned and said it’s men in blackface.
I asked the waitress to speak with a manager. Instead, I spoke with a white restaurant owner. I explained to him why the photograph was offensive. Evidently, someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph before.
Yet, the photograph remained on the wall. He said he would talk to the other owners and get back to me. While leaving, I asked him had he spoke with the other owners. He had not spoken with them, but mentioned Google said it’s coal miners after work.
In art, everyone sees something different
Who determines what’s offensive?
For me, the coal miners disappeared and a film honored for its artistic merit, despite being the most racist propaganda films ever, D.W. Griffith’s “Birth of a Nation” (1915) surfaces, in which white actors appeared in blackface. The white owner saw coal miners in the photograph. Therefore, it was not offensive.
And a little further down:
Viewers cannot determine the intention of an artist’s work. Art also exposes society’s blind spots. Blackface is only a glimpse of a larger issue. The larger issue is the lack of representation of marginalized people and their voices in Phoenix.
Frequently, I enter art galleries and I am not represented in the art, which leads to uneducated curation for exhibitions. While shopping I am ignored because it is assumed I unable to purchase anything, or I am followed by a security guard because it is assumed that I am a threat to the store.
Each assumption is based on a stereotype. Blackface caricatures stereotypes of black people.
At the downtown Phoenix restaurant, my concern that the photograph of men in blackface was a threat to me and my face and voice were ignored.
A business’ photograph of men with blackened faces culturally says to me, “Whites Only.” It says people like me are not welcome.
Here is the photograph in question.
It really is quite sad. I could not possibly live my life acting like a victim for every single thing I perceive as some kind of assault to my existence. Newsflash, Rashaad, it is not all about you. I’m sorry (no) that you aren’t represented in the art at the art gallery you went to. Similarly, white people don’t sit around all day wondering how we can offend and marginalize black people. We honestly don’t care that much about you. Most of us just want to live our lives and be left alone. You should do the same.
Perpetual victimhood is almost like a disease. It is the ressentiment that Nietzsche frequently wrote about. And it is the kind of internal negativity that can destroy a person. Who wants to live their life as a victim anyways? Why would you want to give anyone that much control over how you feel and act? Stop being so pathetically weak and whiny.
Lastly, Rashaad, the world you are asking for would be a totalitarian shithole. You could not possibly put out any art if the deciding factor was whether it offended someone or not. That is completely insane.
The Catholic Church, in some respects rightfully so, has lost some of its clout and its standing as a positive institution to the general public, especially in the last few decades. There are myriad reasons for this but sexual abuse scandals in particular have been a huge part of it. Author Frédéric Martel, a homosexual socialist himself, is releasing a book soon, In the Closet of the Vatican, which is to shine more light on the situation. In a press conference set for today lifesitenews.com reports:
According to the press release, the new book will “expose the rot at the heart of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church today.” For this book, the author has done research for four years and in thirty different countries, and he has conducted “extensive interviews with those in power.”
Martel claims to be able to show us with his new book the underlying connection between the following topics: the celibacy of priests, the condemnation of the use of contraceptives, the cover-up of countless cases of sexual abuse, the resignation of Benedict XVI, misogyny among the clergy, the dramatic fall of vocations to the priesthood, the plotting against Pope Francis.” His book is meant to “reveal these secrets.”
Martel describes in his book, according to the press release, a “system founded on a clerical culture of secrecy which starts in junior seminars and continues right up to the Vatican itself.” It is also based on “the double lives of priests and on extreme homophobia.” Thus, according to this book, there exists a certain “schizophrenia in the Church.”
According to the press release, however, “the more a prelate is homophobic, the more likely it is that he is himself gay.” “Behind rigidity there is always something hidden, in many cases a double life.” These words of Pope Francis are being specifically quoted because he himself “unlocked the Closet” of the Vatican.
And a little bit further down:
While these pro-homosexual authors like Sullivan and Martel might wish to promote the acceptance of homosexuality in the Church, Michael Voris explains, people like Father James Martin, S.J. go into a similar direction, though not yet fully claiming: “change the Church’s teaching!” “But he has said,” Voris adds, “change that [expression] ‘objectively disordered’, get rid of that in the Catechism.”
Voris actually calls Father Martin out, saying that “we have various Jesuit seminarians telling us that in private at their private retreats, Martin admits to [his] being gay.”
“[Father Martin,] Refute what we are saying,” Voris adds. “You now have the opportunity to deny it.” For Voris, the Jesuit Martin is “another gay priest who is going around trying to change the Church’s teaching.”
Further discussing the article written by Andrew Sullivan, Voris comments “Sullivan thinks ‘dump the teaching [on homosexuality].’” “We would say: […] don’t dump the teaching,” as Church Militant’s Bradley Eli responds. Voris adds that he recently spoke with a bishop who told him that “he knows a number of bishops who are gay.”
Commenting on Martel’s upcoming book, Christine Niles says: “Nobody likes a hypocrite, nobody likes a liar. Nobody likes people who lead double lives.” “If you take a vow,” she continues, “and you promised chastity and continence, but you are secretly breaking that vow, people like him [Martel] they don’t like that.” Niles and Voris agree with Martel on this point, saying “he is correct on that.”
Commenting on Martel’s claim that the homosexual network within the Vatican is much bigger than expected, Niles says that the book will be an “eye opener” for many Catholic lay people about the fact that “the Vatican is essentially being run, largely, by homosexuals.” Voris also then mentions the Polish priest, Father Dariusz Oko, who told Church Militant years ago that “half of the guys running the Vatican are gay.” (See here for an interview with Father Oko.)
This is a pretty huge decision point for the Church. They have an opportunity here to either push back against the horrifying amounts of rot and decay amongst their ranks, or make it even worse by normalizing and accepting it. There is an interesting subplot of the whole book release in the intentions of the author. Everyone agrees the homosexuality and abuse scandals need to be exposed and dealt with. The author clearly has an agenda of outing this stuff to normalize homosexuality in the Catholic Church. And it wouldn’t shock me for one second if it was discovered Pope Francis was gay.
But the Church needs to decide what to do with this now. I suspect I know the direction they will go, but we will see. They have an opportunity to use the book to bare all, acknowledge a huge problem, and deal with it swiftly by expelling all of these priests who lead these double lives, against their vows, and start anew. Anything less would likely be a continued decay of the Church into obscurity and even more of an enemy to true Christianity.
Whether you are Catholic or not, all Christians should hope and pray for true reform in the Catholic Church. The opinion of Christianity, fair or not, is usually linked to that of the Catholic Church. When the Catholic Church is engaging in un-Christian activities, fair or not that is viewed across the entirety of Christianity as a whole. This ripple effect is what turns many people off to Christianity, when in reality they are seeing decisions made by humans misinterpreting (or even more sinister, on purpose) Christ’s teachings and applying it to the Church. It would be a very slippery slope to normalize homosexuality in the Church and I think it would turn off many of the Church’s members. If the Church were smart, going forward they would allow the clergy to marry, and maybe even require it. Whether you agree with homosexuality or not it should trouble everyone when clergy LIE about it and bottle it up to the point it becomes so repressed that the pressure is released through terrible acts. Allow clergy to marry and not only will it flush out some of the rot but will open the door to many more potential clergy, given that they are having problems attracting more anyway. The alternative, as the author hopes, in normalizing homosexuality and opening it up more in the Church, I fear, would be another step down the ladder away from true Christianity in an institution that is already struggling greatly.
Diversity is our strength. Diversity is our strength. Diversity is our strength. Tell yourself this mantra day and night for the next year. It will totally make it true. Via Inside Higher Ed:
Duke University asked a professor to step down from her administrative role after she sent an email to students advising them not to speak Chinese in the medical school building and suggesting that failure to speak in English in nonclassroom settings could make it harder for them to get jobs and internships and secure research opportunities with faculty.
Megan Neely, an assistant professor and director of graduate studies for a master’s program in biostatistics, sent an email Friday to first- and second-year students in the program warning them of what she wrote were complaints from two other unnamed professors about students speaking in Chinese in the student lounge and study areas.
“Hi All,” Neely wrote. “I had two separate faculty members come to my office today and ask if I had pictures of the [master’s in biostatistics] students. I shared with them the head shots of the first- and second-year cohorts taken during orientation. Both faculty members picked out a small group of first-year students who they observed speaking Chinese (in their words, VERY LOUDLY) in the student lounge/study areas. I asked why they were curious about the students’ names. Both faculty members replied that they wanted to write down the names so they could remember them if the students ever interviewed for an internship or asked to work with them for a master’s project. They were disappointed that these students were not taking the opportunity to improve their English and were being so impolite as to have a conversation that not everyone on the floor could understand.” (Emphasis per original email.)
Neely’s email continued, “To international students, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep these unintended consequences in mind when you choose to speak in Chinese in the building. I have no idea how hard it has been and still is for you to come to the U.S. and have to learn in a non-native language. As such, I have the upmost respect for what you are doing. That being said, I encourage you to commit to using English 100 percent of the time when you are in Hock or any other professional setting.”
And the reaction from the Asian Students Association:
“This behavior is not only hypocritical — given Duke’s dependence on international students and faculty for their undergraduate and graduate programs, desire to present itself as a ‘global university’, and partnership with Duke Kunshan University — but also discriminatory,” the Asian Students Association at Duke and the Duke International Association said in a joint statement about the emails on Facebook. Duke Kunshan is a reference to Duke’s branch campus in China.
Inevitable in 2019 in America. Everyone is a victim and there is no common language or culture or shared values. This is what happens when you import all that multiculturalism has to offer.
To recap: professor is told by other professors that some students were speaking obnoxiously loud in another language. Professor, looking out for the students, mind you, suggests that they should take advantage of the opportunity to practice their English skills while on campus, which may even help them get research opportunities. Reaction: outrage and she has to step down.
A few things. This wouldn’t be an issue in a predominantly homogeneous society. A country with 90%+ of people of the same nationality, with the same culture, the same language, the same beliefs, makes things a lot easier and run a lot smoother. That ship has clearly sailed for the United States in its current form. As mentioned yesterday, it should always behoove the guests of a country to respect the laws and the customs of the host country. Expressing outrage, at a SUGGESTION, is not respecting the host country. Though we are seeing this increasingly more and more from visitors. As if it needed to be said again, apologizing to the outrage mob will never absolve you in their eyes. It will only show weakness and they will continue to pounce until you are out.
College campuses have been the breeding ground for this type of behavior since at least the 1960s. It will only get worse. With the current trajectories there will be a time in the not so distant future where students demand signs and translators in English, Spanish, Chinese, and who knows what else. This is what happens when you do not encourage assimilation. Every tribe of people will bring THEIR same customs and cultures and languages to America and not bother learning OUR customs, our culture, our language. Remind me again, who wants this?
It has been written about many times before but it always deserves a revisit or refresher; watching copious amounts of porn is terrible for you. And as we have seen with many other topics of late, whether it is the mainstream media, the pharmaceutical industry, or Google and YouTube censoring search results and/or promoting certain websites over others, there’s probably a much darker side to it as well, which is really more what I’m interested in with this post.
But it would be foolish not to reiterate the former point too. Watching porn on a regular basis is not healthy. It can lead to a loss of libido and the ability to get and maintain an erection. Repeated dopamine hits reduces the stimulation and can lead to needing to find more and more, kinkier and kinkier videos to keep the sensation up. It is probably a similar feeling to drug addicts chasing that first high.
But is there really more to this? Is there really anything more dark or sinister going on or any worse than just a few teenagers not being able to perform? Knowing what we know about how the likes of Facebook, Google, YouTube, Apple, etc censor what we see or skew search results to drive certain narratives, would it really be that surprising if the same were happening with porn as well? I don’t think many people realize the level of programming that goes on in this country. The subliminal messages in every commercial (or really shitty attempts at it, Gillette). We have targeted ads thrown at us in our social media and email accounts. A constant bombardment of sensory input, much of it with a very specific goal or idea in mind.
Back to the porn. Pornhub is one of, if not the biggest, porn sites on the internet. In 2018 they had over 33.5 billion visits. Billion. With a B. And this was a 5 billion visit increase from 2017…not a trivial amount. Which probably points to a more worrying trend in that the amount of porn being watched is probably going up, not going down. Pornhub has a section called “Insights” and it is part of a very detailed report they have put out for the past 6 or so years. It offers details on search trends, broken down by category and country, average visit times, and much more. As mentioned before, porn destroys not only the individual man but society on the whole as well. An increase towards more porn being watched, if current trends continue, does not bode well for society. Birth rates are already at a 30-year low. Testosterone levels are dropping. Porn may be causally linked to both of these. Even if it is not it does not portend good things in the long term.
But is it even worse than that? Porn is already a cheap dopamine hit to the system…a superficial payoff with none of the work or buildup required. Generally speaking the more porn one watches, the more desensitized they get to it as well. Which requires watching more porn, or perhaps kinkier porn. Might this also be an area one could control one’s thoughts and habits and desires? Let’s take a look at some of the most common porn search terms on Pornhub through the years, starting with 2013.
For all intents and purposes that looks like a pretty normal set of search terms. Something is noticeably different starting in 2014…
Something you’ll notice with a lot of these searches throughout the years is they have a partially cultural input to them. Other terms really get you wondering psychologically. But the whole, mom, step mom, step sister thing is bad. Incest porn is not healthy. There is no place for it in society. Whether or not it’s free or legal to do it or post videos on it doesn’t mean we should. I was thinking perhaps it was caused by Game of Thrones and the incest subplot going on in there. You’ll see in the later years video games often drive top results too. Or the fact that Stormy Daniels was the most searched for porn star in 2018. This incest trend continues all the way through 2018.
Incest porn, or “taboo” as they sometimes call it, continued to surge in 2016 taking 3 of the top 6 spots overall. Notice overwatch jumping up there. Every year there’s a porn star or genre that surges because of current events or currently hot games or TV shows. Most die out after a year or two. The incest thing keeps chugging along though. 2017…
Incest continued to keep 3 of the top 6 slots in 2017. There is a bit of an anomaly in 2018 but it is mostly consistent…
This one is a bit stranger. Mom and step mom are still top 10 but step sister disappears completely. Note that in all previous years that nothing in the top 10 ever drops so utterly off the map that you don’t see it in the next year. It is only ever one of the lower genres that gets knocked off by the game of the moment (fortnight) or something along those lines. It doesn’t really add up.
Maybe something else is at play. Maybe the search result really is just going down. Though I find that hard to believe when I click on “This week’s most viewed porn videos in US” and literally the first video is entitled: “Bratty Sis – Cock teasing StepSis Gets P**** Creamed S7:E6”. Yeah it’s old-fashioned but I put the asterisks there. Three of the top six most viewed are incest related, the other two being step mom/son fantasies.
This is not normal. This is not healthy. I don’t care if it’s technically legal to show this stuff. It is not healthy for the individual or for society at large. In 2019, would you really be so flabbergasted or shocked to learn that maybe they’re also trying to brainwash you with all the porn you’re watching? And who knows for what twisted, perverted, fucked up purpose. Encouraging incest IS NOT GOOD. You can say that people can tell the difference, or that it would never lead anywhere, but are you really so sure of that? Imagine planting that little seed into someone’s head every day that maybe it’s okay. Oh, it’s just a step sibling, not blood related. Oh, it’s just fantasy. Is it really so far fetched to see that maybe some people would take that as enough of a cue to rationalize it being okay? Where do we end up long term if that seed ever takes root?
These people are trying to destroy the nuclear family. They are trying to introduce degeneracy and destruction into your lives. These are dark, sick, twisted people. If you haven’t already, take a look at the work that Jamie Dlux is doing reporting on the absolute abhorrent stuff coming out of Hollywood. It’s not like the porn industry is any cleaner. Suffice to say I’m a little suspicious with the amount of twisted incest porn and interracial sex videos posted (especially when the latter is a search term that is never in the top searches yet these videos seem to be pushed incessantly hard). At the very least, consider the possibility that maybe there’s more going on here than just an innocent fap.
Only fitting to share a little Mozart on his birthday. One of my favorite pieces of his. Used very well in The New World too.
As the Government shutdown continues to drag on one thing seems apparent: those opposing the wall are hoping their constituents aren’t paying attention or just don’t care. Consider a few of the facts presented by President Trump in a letter President Trump sent to Congress earlier this month:
- In fiscal year (FY) 2018, 17,000 adults at the border with existing criminal records were arrested by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and border agents.
- In FY2017 and FY2018, ICE officers arrested approximately 235,000 aliens on various criminal charges or convictions within the interior of the United States—including roughly 100,000 for assault, 30,000 for sex crimes, and 4,000 for homicides.
- We are now averaging 60,000 illegal and inadmissible aliens a month on our Southern Border.
- Last month alone, more than 20,000 minors were smuggled into the United States.
- The immigration court backlog is nearly 800,000 cases.
- There has been a 2,000 percent increase in asylum claims over the last five years, with the largest growth coming from Central America—while around 9 in 10 claims from Central American migrants are ultimately rejected by the immigration courts, the applicant has long since been released into the interior of the United States.
- In FY2017, roughly 135,000 illegal and inadmissible family units arrived from Central America. Of those, less than 2 percent have been successfully removed from the country due to a shortage of resources and glaring loopholes in our federal laws.
- So far in FY2019, we have seen a 280 percent increase in family units from FY2018.
- 300 Americans are killed every week from heroin—90 percent of which floods across our Southern Border.
- Illegal immigration is a humanitarian crisis: 1 in 3 migrant women is sexually assaulted on the journey northward to the U.S. border; 50 illegal migrants a day are referred for emergency medical care; and CBP rescues 4,300 people a year who are in danger and distress.
That is an airtight case that there is a problem at the border and that a wall is one of many things that needs to be done to help curb the problem. Then consider that through restructuring NAFTA we are saving billions of dollars (Mexico indirectly paying), or consider the staggering amounts of wasteful government spending that occurs on a daily basis. Or how about the amount of money we spend on foreign wars that we shouldn’t even be a part of? Or this; Rand Paul recently tweeted that we give foreign aid to China and borrow money from them to pay them back…
The point being that we waste so much money on so much crap that even if the wall was a complete waste of money, $5.7 billion dollars is less than a drop in the bucket compared to the amount we spend each year and why not give it a shot to see if it does anything?
It gets even worse. Chuck and Nancy, the two-headed monster that is the mouthpiece of the opposition party, voted for fencing several times, as did then Senators Obama and Clinton. We even had the money earmarked for it and the fence was simply never built. So we’re supposed to take Chuck and Nancy on their word that it’s immoral and just bad for *reasons* while they previously voted for it in the past? And for the cherry on top, why is it okay that we fund a wall in Jordan but cannot do the same for ourselves? Why is it okay for Israel to have a wall but not for ourselves? Did you know Chuck Schumer, as well as many other members of Congress have dual citizenship and are Israeli citizens as well? Why is it okay for them to defend their borders, Chuck, but we aren’t?
It is clear they do not care about Americans and in fact think so little of us that they think we’re stupid enough to listen to them deride the wall without noticing their past track record or their current stances in general. It is downright insulting and shows the absolute disdain with which they view the American public.
Which leads to the thrust of the idea. I really believe these people are hoping that they can dumb down the American public faster than they think we can catch onto their lies. Watch a news broadcast from even 15 years ago compared to today. You may once in a while actually find a spirited debate where opposing views are actually debated at the same time and both viewpoints being heard. Take a look at this video of Jared Taylor talking with Donahue about race in America. This conversation would NEVER occur today. They would NEVER want you to hear the facts or hear the viewpoint that Jared brings to the table. No. Now segments are one-sided and they are so short nothing of substance is ever said before another commercial break or topic change takes place. The “opponent” in today’s segments are usually controlled opposition (read: approved). Sometimes someone like Tucker will get someone on where there is genuine pushback but the segments are so short that neither side can really have the time to get their point across and it often ends in a screaming match that Tucker needs to end because they aren’t getting anywhere.
This isn’t a coincidence. The mainstream media is dumbing down the American public. They are removing the critical thinking skills that we all once had in much greater abundance. Couple that with distracting smart phones, shorter video clips, more commercials, and less people reading, and you get a genuinely dumbed down public. IQ scores are falling worldwide. Mainstream media will want you to believe that is due to climate change…but it is more likely due to the reasons stated in the Unz article. Either way, the fact is they really are falling. People really are getting dumber. You are not just imagining it. And Americans are reading less and less every year which cannot help critical thinking skills or holding attention spans.
All of this adds up to people like Chuck and Nancy thinking they can somehow justify their current position on the wall and not think anyone will notice how patently absurd it is. Or worse, maybe they do know and just don’t think anyone will care. Entertainment has been the opiate of the masses. So long as people are comfortable and distracted many simply will not care about a wall or the hypocrisies of these people. I fear a majority of the population will be in for a rude awakening when civilization as we know it begins to break down because we never addressed these problems and let them fester and metastasize to the point that they become uncontrollable. Perhaps we have already passed the point of no return. The trend certainly seems to be pointing that way. But maybe it has not. And I’m thankful we have a President who is standing his ground and genuinely fighting to reverse this trend.
Perhaps it’s just coincidental given the amount of vaccination stories coming out as of late, but it really does seem like they’re pushing this vaccine stuff HARD. At the Golden Globes the other night they had doctors administer “flu shots”. Of course, whoever the host was had to add this dig:
If you’re an anti-vaxxer, just put a napkin over your head and we’ll skip you.
BAHAHAHA! So funny dude!
Curious tweet from Vanity Fair on the whole thing too:
Why would that make you worry if they’re so safe? Hmmmmm. This whole thing is creepy and unsettling. It’s clearly an effort to sway public opinion on the issue. The mind control is real, folks. You’re not imagining it.
Meanwhile, there may indeed be a link between vaccines and autism after all. I still need to research this more before I have a firm opinion one way or another but it’s certainly raising more and more red flags…
