Indiana Abortion Biz Refuses to Follow Order to Stop Abortions, Puts Coronavirus Patients at Risk

At least one Indiana abortion facility is continuing “business as usual” despite Gov. Eric Holcomb’s order halting all non-essential medical procedures during the coronavirus crisis. Whole Woman’s Health in South Bend, which already has a poor reputation with state health authorities, told WSBT 22 News that it is not stopping elective abortions. Earlier this week, the pro-life Republican governor ordered “all health care providers, whether medical, dental or other, and health care facilities, whether hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, dental facilities, plastic surgery centers, dermatology offices and abortion clinics” to cancel or postpone elective and non-urgent surgical or invasive procedures. The...

Planned Parenthood Doc Caught Saying She’d “Break the Baby’s Neck” if Baby Born Alive After Abortion

Planned Parenthood abortionists in St. Paul, Minnesota would “break the baby’s neck” if the child was born alive, according to a new video just released by Pro-Life Action Ministries. This would be a violation of both federal and Minnesota law. In the video, a former Planned Parenthood client says that when she went to Planned Parenthood earlier this year for a late-term abortion (at 22 weeks, 1 day), she asked the two abortionists, “If you guys were to take him out right now while he’s still, his heart rate is still, you know, going, what would you guys do?”

Lowering the Bar Puts American Society at Risk

PARIS -- Stupidity and obesity are now matters of U.S. national security. And it's only the tip of a more significant iceberg that threatens America from within. An organization called Mission: Readiness comprised of more than 500 retired generals and military leaders routinely publishes reports -- including one just last month -- detailing how a significant number of American kids these days are either too fat to be effective fighters or too low-scoring in math, literacy and problem-solving to pass the basic military enlistment exam. Granted, the way modern warfare is heading, future recruits might spend their days sitting at...

GOP pushback puts judicial nominee at risk

President Trump’s pick for an influential appeals court seat is facing rare pushback from Republican lawmakers and conservative groups. Their skepticism is raising questions about whether Judge Halil Suleyman Ozerden, nominated to fill a vacancy on the 5th Circuit, will be confirmed even as GOP leaders say they are moving forward with his nomination. Senate Republicans have placed a premium on confirming Trump’s nominees to the circuit courts, setting a record for the pace of approving appeals judges during the first two years of his presidency. Judicial nominations are a top priority for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) because...

Will The TSA Close This Dangerous Loophole That Puts Everyone At Risk?

Everyone who flies has been through it. The long lines. Emptying pockets. Removing your belt and/or jewelry. Taking laptops and electronics out of your suitcases or bags. Having your bag randomly searched or, worse, being subjected to a “random” body patdown. If you’re at a large airport, maybe you’ll get lucky and a bomb-sniffing dog will be there to make the line go twice as fast and save everyone from having to step on everyone else’s foot fungus - but if not, foot fungus it is. And heaven help you if you wore white socks or, God forbid, no socks...

With President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal just around the corner, there couldn’t have been a better time for the 2015 Christian United for Israel (CUFI) Summit in Washington D.C. ISRAEL-PALESTINIAN-CONFLICT-IRAN-WEAPONR “We gather here for our tenth annual CUFI summit, and this is the snapshot of the world: The enemies of Israel have surrounded the Jewish state, promising to wipe the Jewish people off the face of the earth. Our State Department has been groveling before Iran, trying to get a nuclear agreement,” said CUFI Founder and National Chairman Pastor John Hagee at the summit’s Welcome Ceremony.“Every day concessions are made,...

Graham leaving GOP puts key evangelical vote at risk...

The Rev. Franklin Graham quitting the Republican Party poses a significant blow to the GOP's 2016 White House aspirations, especially if other evangelical pastors follow suit and their millions-plus congregations stay away from the polls. Graham suggested earlier this week that the last straw was congressional Republicans funding Planned Parenthood in the recently passed, $1.8 trillion tax-and-spending package, despite revelations about the group harvesting fetal tissue. However, he made clear Wednesday night that the funding was only part of the reason he left the GOP to become an independent. "It's not just that," Graham said on Fox News' "On the...

Mexico Trade War Puts 1 in 33 California Jobs at Risk

It’s far more than just the supply of avocados that’s at risk in any U.S.-Mexico trade war, with these international deals linked to 3.25 percent of California employment, according to one study. WalletHub used government data to evaluate the relative levels of economic ties each state had to the $600 billion-a-year trade business with Mexico. President Donald Trump has harshly criticized Mexico’s government and its trade relations with the U.S., putting the economic ties between the two nations in jeopardy. To be kind, the ideas were poorly received south of the border. The international political banter overshadows big business that...

‘Sanctuary state’ bill puts Nevadans at risk

Las Vegas Review-Journal ^ | March 2, 2017 | Victor Joecks
Forget sanctuary city. Some Nevada politicians want to make Nevada a sanctuary state. That’s what Sen. Yvanna Cancela, D-Las Vegas, has proposed in SB223, which would make it illegal for state and local law enforcement officers to help or even share information with federal immigration officials except in the narrowest of circumstances. It’s not like Nevada is aggressive about immigration enforcement right now. If someone reports a crime, the Metropolitan Police Department doesn’t ask about immigration status. Metro doesn’t conduct immigration raids. It’s not until someone is booked into jail that Metro starts working with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement...

Michigan’s major cities — which have been among the most violent in the nation in recent years — saw a major drop in crime last year. Generally speaking, it is the safest time in decades to live in Michigan. The FBI recently released the 2015 edition of its annual report, “Crime in the United States.” The report is a compilation of data that law enforcement agencies around the country voluntarily submit to FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR). According to the UCR website, 18,000 city, university, county, state, tribal and federal law enforcement agencies participate in the program, which has...

How Redefining Marriage Puts Unborn Children at Risk
07/20/2015 1:23:50 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | July 20, 2015 | Ryan Anderson
Last week many of us were disgusted to learn Planned Parenthood is harvesting and selling body parts from aborted children. As the largest provider of abortion in America, Planned Parenthood is part of the problem, on the “supply” side. But as we all learned in Econ 101, there’s both supply and demand. What’s behind the demand for abortion? A major factor is the breakdown of the family. And the Supreme Court’s ruling to redefine marriage is only taking us further down that road, putting even more unborn children at risk. After all redefining marriage redefines parenthood. The best protectors of...

At a press conference addressing a jihadist attack in Minnesota, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) warned Muslims are now potential victims at risk of being harmed in retaliation. CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding operation. The St. Cloud, Minnesota, mass stabbing occurred at the city’s Crossroads Center mall on Saturday night. A Somali man allegedly shouted, “Allah,” as he stabbed nine people before he was shot dead by an off-duty officer. All nine victims stabbed at the Crossroads Center mall...

Moderate Republican Rep. Richard Hanna of New York plans to announce his retirement, leaving a competitive open seat for Republicans to defend. The news, which was first reported early Sunday morning by The Post-Standard in Syracuse, shouldn’t come as a complete surprise. He is a 64-year-old father of two kids under the age of 10 years old and is personally wealthy.

Record slow planting puts 2019 crop at risk

Farm Futures (Farm Progress Daily) ^ | May 21, 2019 | Bryce Knorr
A cold, wet spring that caused record slow corn planting has the 2019 crop squarely behind the 8-ball. To recover lost potential, production must run the table with near-perfect conditions the rest of the growing season. Otherwise, a smaller crop could wipe out much of the surplus USDA forecasts for the coming year. While the slow start doesn’t doom the crop, the unusual political and economic environment of 2019 could make recovery more difficult than in other years with major delays. Related: USDA crop progress: Corn fails to reach the halfway mark USDA reported only 49% of the crop planted...

Bombardier: May 'bitterly disappointed' as US tariff puts jobs at risk

Theresa May is “bitterly disappointed” by a US decision to impose a punitive tariff on exports of passenger jets built by one of Northern Ireland’s biggest employers, Downing Street said. The US Department of Commerce ruled in favour of Boeing in its legal battle with Bombardier, prompting fears in Northern Ireland that aerospace jobs in the region could be in peril. An interim tariff of of 219.63% has been proposed on sales of Bombardier’s C-Series jet to the US airline Delta.

Pentagon Puts Cyberwarriors on the Offensive, Increasing the Risk of Conflict

WRAL via Drudge ^ | June 2018 | David E. Sanger
The Pentagon has quietly empowered the United States Cyber Command to take a far more aggressive approach to defending the nation against cyberattacks, a shift in strategy that could increase the risk of conflict with the foreign states that sponsor malicious hacking groups. The U.S. Cyber Command was created partly in response to a Russian hacking attack that long predated the 2016 election. In the fall of 2008, Russian intelligence agencies penetrated SIPRNet, the Pentagon’s secret internal network; that led to a rush to consolidate several cyberprograms into a command. The Chinese, meanwhile, were stealing weapons designs, including blueprints for...

Justin Trudeau, Canada’s new prime minister, is currently visiting Washington to deepen ties with President Barack Obama and make headway on an ambitious left-leaning agenda on a wider range of issues. From an economics perspective, the summit is basically like Trudeaunomics-meets-Obamanomics, which can double the risk of undermining Canada’s economic freedom and dynamism. […] The U.S. has fallen from the 6th freest economy in the world, when Obama took office, to 11th place in 2016. America’s declining score in the index is closely related to the Obamanomics, which has been hurting the economic livelihood of the poor and minorities the...

Japanese and Chinese at highest risk for Coronavirus What is your risk to get infected coronavirus? East Asians, Japanese, and Han Chinese are the most likely people to become severely sick by the coronavirus with a chance of more than 90% when exposed. Europeans only rank in the 50%, Africans in the 60% range, and considered low to medium. It also makes a difference if one is a smoker or non-smoker. The Travel and Tourism industry is in turmoil. Tourism leaders don’t want anyone to panic, but the story doesn’t yet have an end to it. At the same time,...

President Emmanuel Macron has urged the French to vote for pro-EU parties in Sunday’s European Parliament election to stave off the threat of “nationalists.” The leader of the globalist-progressive La République En Marche (LREM/Republic on the Move) claimed that despite being the president, who should remain above the fray of national elections, he had to intervene because of the role he plays in bringing forth the “new stage of the European Project.” “I cannot be a spectator, but an actor in this European election which is the most important since 1979 [when the first European Parliament elections were held] because...

Vulnerability in popular bootloader puts locked-down Linux computers at risk

CSO Online ^ | 16 December 2015 | Lucian Constantin
Pressing the backspace key 28 times can bypass the Grub2 bootloader's password protection and allow a hacker to install malware on a locked-down Linux system. GRUB, which stands for the Grand Unified Bootloader, is used by most Linux distributions to initialize the operating system when the computer starts. It has a password feature that can restrict access to boot entries, for example on computers with multiple operating systems installed. This protection is particularly important within organizations, where it is also common to disable CD-ROM, USB and network boot options and to set a password for the BIOS/UEFI firmware in order...
