    A pro-life billboard exposing Canada’s radical pro-abortion laws was taken down recently after abortion activists complained. Pro-life advocates in Canada do not have the same free speech rights that pro-lifers in America do. The billboard, which read “Our right to life does not depend on location” beside pictures of a pregnant woman and someone holding a baby, had to be taken down because of a ruling by the Ad Standards council, according to Global News Canada. The Kelowna Right to Life Society paid for the billboard to run along the highway in West Kelowna for more than a year, the...
  • BRING IN THE ROBOTS: Rep. Rashida Tlaib Calls for a $20 Minimum Wage

    07/22/2019 3:34:33 PM PDT · by mplc51 · 58 replies
    Far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib is now calling for a $20 an hour minimum wage, which would be absolutely crushing for smaller businesses. Rep. Tlaib made the remarks at an event for the One Fair Wage campaign, which seeks to “pass legislation in cities and states that will require the restaurant industry to pay all its employees at least the full minimum wage.” Many Democrats have come out in support of raising the minimum wage to $15, but that isn’t good enough for Rep. Tlaib. “By the way, when we started it, it should have been $15. Now I think it...

    Via the Free Beacon. I told you she’s the Ringo of the group, did I not?Two things about this. First, I think it probably does fairly represent Tlaib’s and the Squad’s approach to policy generally, which is really just to take whatever the current progressive conventional wisdom is and super-size it. Progressives want softer borders? F*** that. AOC’s ready to get rid of borders. Progressives want to return to the Paris Accord? F*** that.

    Late Abortionist Jane Hodgson writes about why she was glad she got involved in pro-abortion advocacy and performing abortions: “I think in many ways I’ve been lucky to have been part of this. If I hadn’t gotten involved, I would have gone through life probably being perfectly satisfied to go to the medical society parties and it would have been very, very dull. I would have been bored silly.” Carole Joffe “The Social Status of Abortion Providers: ‘Doctors of Conscience’ Revisited” Rewire Oct 24, 2013

    Former Vice President Joe Biden has used Barack Obama’s beloved status among Democratic voters to insulate him from criticism from the massive field of candidates jockeying to be the next president. But in recent weeks, the Democratic frontrunner has had that legacy used against him, with his competitors pointing the to shortcomings of the last Democratic administration as evidence that Biden’s not up to the task of leading the next one. “Barack Obama, personally, is incredibly popular among Democratic primary voters,” Karthik Ganapathy, a progressive consultant now running his own firm, told The Daily Beast. “And also at the same...

    Abysmal failure': Republican takes down ObamaCare during House hearingRep. Clay Higgins speaks out on 'Fox & Friends' after delivering a personal story about how the Affordable Care Act was completely unaffordable for his family. On July 9, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit hinted that it might strike down ObamaCare. If it does, then the U.S. Supreme Court will likely have the last word on the law's fate. And it's unclear whether ObamaCare could survive another date with the high court. If the courts axe ObamaCare, President Trump has promised to replace it with something "far...

    White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller on Sunday charged that four minority congresswomen under attack by President Donald Trump “detest America as it exists,” and vowed Trump's reelection campaign will take that “view… to the ballot box.” In a contentious interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Miller argued the Democratic lawmakers — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts — want a socialist government. “These four congresswomen detest America as it exists, as it currently is constructed,” he declared. “They want to tear down the structure of this...

    FULL TITLE: Michelle Obama Claims People Dismiss Presidency After Barack: ‘If a Black Guy Can Do It, Anybody Can’ In a Saturday interview, former first lady Michelle Obama insisted that Americans now dismiss the U.S. presidency because a black man was recently in the office. Speaking to TV host Gayle King during the 2019 Essence Festival at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Obama exclaimed that husband Barack made the presidency “look too easy,” Fox News reported. “I guess it’s kind of like if the black guy can do it, anybody can do it — and that’s not true. It’s a hard job,”...

    They are a match made in their political heaven. Tom Steyer and his money along with Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and her Justice Democrats. As the 2020 election nears, they will be two of the generals in the Democrats’ civil war. The party that loses the White House often struggles to find unity. When Barack Obama defeated John McCain, the Republicans struggled to find a unifying leader and a unifying message for years. With Trump in the White House and his 90 percent approval rating among Republicans, according to Gallup, Republicans are unified. The Democrats are not. On the contrary, the Democrats...

    A university student who won a national award for designing a chair that stops men from manspreading has faced vile rape threats. Laila Laurel, 23, studying at the University of Brighton, created the piece of furniture to stop men from widening their legs and encroaching on other people's personal space. In her design, two bits of wood are positioned on the seat to physically stop whoever is sitting down from moving their legs apart. She received the award last week but says that she has been sent 'unpleasant backlash' since, with men sending explicit photos and rape threats to her...

    ...MSNBC’s All In host, Chris Hayes, took a leading position Thursday night by denouncing all Republicans and Trump supporters, and calling for a revolution of sorts against the Trump administration. As with all social justice warriors, Hayes has been circulating his “cause” all week, building the case for Trump’s apparent racism. He began: “Each part of the coalition has been dealt into the Trump presidency. It is a classic model of corrupt governance. The capo on the top and the many, many bosses below who are given control of their domain to do as they wish.” This statement, clearly meant...

One of those philosophical differences, sources say, is that Wen happens to believe women’s health care is for, well, women. “Two sources told BuzzFeed News that Wen refused to...

    Back in 1970, the Nixon administration enacted the Title X Family Funding Program. As described on the HHS website, “For more than 40 years, Title X family planning clinics have played a critical role in ensuring access to a broad range of family planning and related preventive health services for millions of low-income or uninsured individuals.” For years, abortion providers were unable to access these funds, until President Clinton decided otherwise. Since then, abortion mills like Planned Parenthood have happily tapped into these funds to make sure that, utilizing some creative bookkeeping, women from low-income households have access to abortion...

The abortion activist is best known for filibustering a bill to ban late-term abortions in the Texas legislature. The revelation ends months of speculation and sets the stage for what could be a high-profile duel in a congressional district national Democrats are aggressively targeting. Abigail Sheppard, press secretary for U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Brownsville, said Thursday that “Wendy spoke to the congressman directly that she plans on running.” Davis, a former state senator, said in April that she was...
