      Millions of Americans were outraged that their tax dollars were being used in a planned infanticide. It doesn’t matter if the baby is black, white, red, orange, etc. …. That baby is a person. This has been a long time coming.
      Thank you President Trump!

  2. There is NO justification for forcing taxpayers to subsidize the crushing of babies’ skulls, no matter what one feels about the issue personally. Forcing Americans to be complicit in this act of murder, with no respect for political, theological, moral or personal leanings was yet another big F.U. from the O’Loser Administration.

      That’s ridiculous. My son knew a guy who is serving 35 YEARS for an assault that involved a hatchet. Some sort of fight ensued between him & another guy. The tool happened to be close by, so in heat of fight/moment- he foolishly grabbed & used it. The other guy survived.

      The perp was in his 20’s. He’d never been in trouble with the law prior. He was the son of a police officer (granted dirty, according to the kid). But it may have also worked against him being a white male. Apparently that he was not transgender, did too!

      The crazy thing is, had the victim actually died– he would’ve actually received less time for a murder charge! As I told my son, that’s a seriously warped message for the CJS to be sending people.

        Yet another reason to expose him for the fraud he was– so anything he signed is rendered null & void. We also know his intentions towards the country were not in The People’s best interest.

        The Press can’t have it both ways. They don’t get to push propaganda onto the Public, being PAID to LIE… & then claim or hide behind the rights afforded them under “Freedom of Press.” These 2 things are in direct conflict, & CANNOT coincide together.

        Further, it’s proven itself a detriment to the country. Creating a divisive sentiment that only incites chaos & violence… it needs to be overturned ASAP. It should have been already. I can’t see how it’s not Unconstitutional on it’s basis.

    Non-US Dollar global investment grade bond market:

    The least dirty shirt in the laundry basket (the US) doesn’t mean our shirt isn’t dirty (it’s FAR too debt laden), but it isn’t as dirty as everyone else’s shirt AND we own the world’s reserve currency.

    The result is capital flight from them to us. That keeps us going longer, but doesn’t fix our (and their) core problem and actually makes it worse here by enabling even MORE deficit spending, economic expansion, and speculation based upon easy money and NOT upon basic fundamentals.

    Eventually, it all comes crashing down as it must. ALL bubbles burst. ALWAYS. And this one is the worldwide “everything bubble” coming after the US dot com bubble and the US sub-prime/housing bubble with its major international effects causing it to be called the Global Financial Crisis.

        Absolutely! Raise it to a more reasonable level like $20,000 otherwise President Trump is never going to win back the House! Every Republican Congressman in Southern California lost even in solid Red counties like Orange. Even the Republican District Attorney lost. The only winner was the sheriff who supports CCW. There are dozens of Red districts around New York and New Jersey that we lost because of that ridiculous $10,000 cap. Nobody is subsidizing us, either. Why should I pay tax on income I already paid tax on when even paying foreign government tax is fully deductible. So, pay tax to the EU or Japan and it’s fully deductible but not New York or California.

I get ZERO benefit from doing that. The people who own the $500,000 and up McMansions in high rate areas need to direct their wrath at their local legislators and demand that the property tax rates be decreased.

    Remember those horrifying undercover videos showing the sale of “baby parts” by Planned Parenthood?

    This is connected. Planned Parenthood is still making a lot of money from selling aborted babies.

    Maybe more people will be outraged if they were made aware of what is being done with those “sold” baby “parts”. If nothing else, some would be more upset by the harm done to laboratory animals than they would be bothered by using aborted babies. Sadly, that’s true.

      As a former abortion supporter I can tell you that two things caused me to switch to the other side.

      1) Understanding the full and complete process of abortion, which PP and other groups try so desperately to hide. They don’t want women to know what happens. It’s disgusting. We don’t even treat insects so badly.

      2) Realizing that PP and other groups promote abortion far more than they promote birth control and thoughtful abstinence. They always promote abortion as basic women’s health care instead of a last resort procedure that should be extremely rare. They always promote abortion as allowing women to have control of their bodies, but when a woman is pregnant with a unwanted baby she has already lost control.

    Home today I’m glad I caught PDT comments fro the White House. Those of you who missed it I urge you to replay it from one of several sources. Watch his face as he speaks in measured statements especially as to his willingness to take on what others have shirked – and far worse. Watch ALL of it. When it’s a serious topic, and G_d knows we face many of them, I have never, ever, sat one as qualified as this guy is. I urge everyone here to pray for him, that he be guided by the Holy Spirit. Pray for his family, Melania, and especially their young son Barron who at all of 13 years of age has seen and heard way more than any young man should about his parents. He’s a good looking kid, getting tall, and I have a feeling he’ll be a fine young man.

    #Trump tweet, point #3: It doesn’t matter whether the bias in #Google search results was deliberate or not. Once it appeared – which it did at least 6 months before the election – it began shifting opinions & votes without people’s knowledge & without leaving a paper trail.

    18 minutes ago

    #Trump tweet, point #2: The level of pro-#Hillary bias I found in #Google’s search results – absent on #Bing & #Yahoo – was enough to convince between 2.6 & 10.4 million undecided voters to vote for Hillary. .@realDonaldTrump said 16 million; that’s wrong.

    #Trump tweet, point #1: I’ve never said that #Google deliberately “manipulated” the 2016 election, but I measured substantial pro-#Hillary bias in #Google’s search results by preserving & analyzing 13,207 election-related searches & the 98,044 web pages linked to those searches.

    EPSTEIN: Google’s Latest Whistleblower Is Hard To Ignore

    As the 2016 election heated up, “the angle that the Democrats and the media took was that anyone who liked Donald Trump was a racist … And that got picked up everywhere. I mean, every tech company, everybody in New York, everybody in the field of computer science basically believed that.”

    And those beliefs, Coppola says, got expressed in algorithms, over which Google employees have complete control. “They don’t write themselves. We write them to do what we want them to do.”

    __

    I reported that bias in Google search results likely shifted at least 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton in 2016 with no one knowing and without leaving a paper trail; that Google’s “Go Vote” reminder on Election Day in 2018 gave Democrats at least 800,000 more votes than it gave Republicans; that bias in Google search results may have shifted upwards of 78.2 million votes (spread across hundreds of state and regional races) to Democrats in the 2018 election; and that if Big Tech companies all favor the same presidential candidate in 2020, they could conceivably shift 15 million votes to that candidate — again, with no one knowing and without leaving a paper trail.

    If numbers like this make you wonder whether next year’s election will be fair, listen to Google’s latest whistleblower. Then worry.
