W.H.O. Says Individuals Have A Right To Reproduce

                 People who don’t have sex or who struggle to find a partner with whom to have children will now be considered as disabled by the World Health Organization (WHO), according to the website. Infertility has been considered a disability for some time now, but the new WHO guidelines are much more inclusive, apparently embracing those who are very shy or just struck out at the local watering hole.
                WHO touts the change, stating that it will give every individual “the right to reproduce.”
                Every individual has the right to reproduce? Cloning, cell-division?
                Dr. David Adamson, one of the new standard’s authors, sees them as a “big chance” for single and gay people, saying: The definition of infertility is now written in such a way that it includes the rights of all individuals to have a family, and that includes single men, single women, gay men, gay women. It puts a stake in the ground and says an individual’s got a right to reproduce whether or not they have a partner. It’s a big change. It fundamentally alters who should be included in this group and who should have access to healthcare. It sets an international legal standard. Countries are bound by it.” Ah, I see.
                The right of single men, single women and gays and lesbians to reproduce? An individual has a right to reproduce whether or not anyone else is involved? We sure are doing a lot of “fundamentally altering” things.
                 Josephine Quintavalle, Director of the group Comment on Reproductive Ethics, is less than thrilled with this new directive. “This absurd nonsense is not simply re-defining infertility but completely side-lining the biological process and significance of natural intercourse between a man and a woman.
                Sadly Josephine, that would be the whole point.
                She continued: “How long before babies are created and grown on request completely in the lab?” Probably not long.
                We are all bound by climate-change agreements? We are all bound by reproductive-rights changing agreements?
                There are a few things we seem utterly incapable of reproducing here in the United States, however: the freedom, sovereignty, dignity, logic, courage, character and wisdom our Founders bequeathed to us.

Swedish Prosecutor Rules ISIS Flag Not Hate Speech

                Swedish prosecutor Gisela Sjövall recently announced that she won’t be prosecuting a 23-year-old man who had posted the black ISIS flag on his Facebook page last June. The man is a Syrian now living in Laholm, a city on Sweden’s west coast. Ms. Sjövall ruled that the ISIS flag does not constitute hate speech and is therefore legal under Swedish law.
                Sjövall stated that while the swastika had come to symbolize a hatred for Jews, the same could not yet be said of the ISIS flag, though she added, “That could change in ten years.” Under Swedish law, for an image or statement to represent “incitement to hatred,” it needs to threaten or disparage a specific group of persons in connection to race, color, national or ethnic origin, religious belief or sexual orientation. Oh, come on. NAZI swastikas and flags of the Third Reich didn’t have text on them stating, “We hate Jews,” either. And radical Islamists have been killing Jews, among others, for far longer than the NAZIs did, yet the Swastika flag is verboten in Sweden, but ISIS’s is okay? Would Ms. Sjövall rule in favor of the Confederate flag?
                “If there had been anything in the text with more specific formulations about certain groups, for example homosexuals, the ruling could have been different,” Sjövall remarked. “For me, there are no doubts about the decision not to prosecute.”
                “Put simply, one can say that he is expressing contempt for “all others,” and not against a specific ethnic group,” Sjövall explained to SVT, a Swedish Public Television station.
                So, in her own words, inciting hatred towards all other groups- everyone else- is not hate speech, but disparaging a smaller group is.
                That’s funnier than any Ole’ and Lena joke. Welcome to ‘reason,’ 2016 style.
                (Conservative talk show hosts have been banned from some European countries and even mild-mannered, intellectual Dennis Prager's "Prager University" videos have been banned from You-Tube...and the ISIS flag is okay on social media?)

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio A Terrorist?

                The Team Hillary Clinton emails released by WikiLeaks are appointment reading, and one thing is certain: there is a consistent theme amongst them: the "Basket of Deplorables" is truly ginormous!
                This latest batch reveals its hatred of traditional Catholics, southerners, and Bernie Sanders supporters... such as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. De Blasio had the audacity to go on NBC's "Meet The Press" in the late spring of 2015 and not endorse Hillary. What is more, he praised Bernie Sanders. This apparently didn't sit well with Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook and spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri. Mook fired off a brief email to Palmieri: "Wow. What a terrorist," to which Palmieri responded, "Told you!"
                I am anything but a Sanders fan, and have nothing but disdain for the mayor, but this is not exactly a well thought out, reasoned argument. The Obama administration, of which Hillary was a part, won't even call terrorists "terrorists," but two of Her top aides reflexively call the current mayor of New York a terrorist? Their knee-jerk reaction is illustrative. This is what passes for' thinking' on the left: "If you disagree with me, you are a terrorist." It is no wonder that they want to ban freedom of speech and repeal the First Amendment, among others.
                Emails apparently hacked from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's private account also referred to Bernie Sanders supporters in general as "self-righteous" whiners. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! Say hello to the Trump supporters, folks. Into the basket you go. Other emails called Hispanic party leaders such as Bill Richardson "needy Latinos," labeled CNN anchor Jake Tapper "a d--k," and even savaged erstwhile Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal. Into the basket, boys! (These comments comprised part of an April 2011 email discussion between Ms. Palmieri and John Halpin, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, an organization he founded).
                These emails should be by far the most important revelations of the presidential race to date, particularly the ones relating how Hillary Clinton has come “to hate everyday Americans” and emphasizing the need for her kind to maintain political power by producing “an unaware and compliant citizenry.” Slaves. This, while tragically not surprising to engaged and informed people, should be seen as potentially the most important and game-changing news for America since World War II… if not the Civil War. Yet, in a preposterous travesty and titanic miscarriage of justice, American mainstream media outlets are steadfastly refusing to report on this ongoing story.
                The same media types that got so aroused by their own importance in doggedly unearthing evidence of the Watergate scandal are now desperately attempting to help Hillary cover up her vastly more damaging misbehavior and incompetence.
                Try to imagine what the media response would have been if Donald Trump was caught saying he “hates everyday Americans,” or his campaign was caught stating that they needed to get or retain power by “producing an unaware and compliant citizenry.” He would have been summarily forced out of the race.

President Obama Blames Climate Change For The War In Syria

                 President Obama recently blamed climate change for the war in Syria, stating that “powerful” studies suggest “the droughts that happened in Syria contributed to the unrest and the Syrian civil war.” His remarks came during a high-level discussion with renowned scientist (and loving family man!) Leonardo DiCaprio.
                This enlightened, sapient commentary  has already led scholars, scientists and historians to develop new theories about the origins of the Civil War, World Wars I & II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, both Gulf Wars, and the War on Women, among other momentous conflicts.
                The Civil War took place at the tail end of the Little Ice Age, a period of general cooling and unpredictability. Incredibly, there were dramatic fluctuations in weather, with one year bringing in an intensely cold winter, and the next a searingly hot summer. Experts now postulate that the unstable weather, rather than differences over slavery and state’s rights, was the proximate cause of the war.
                The assassination of Archduke Ferdinand has always been thought to be the cause of the Great War, World War I. But now, progressive, perspicacious thinking is revealing that the unusually cold weather leading up to and during the heinous war to end all wars may be the real culprit. Moreover, among many experts, similar weather anomalies are now overshadowing the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor as the real reason behind America’s entry into World War II.
                New insights into the genesis of the Korean War are also coming to light. The reason North Korea, backed by the Soviet Union and China, invaded South Korea in 1950 was because these country’s troops were so cold, they simply needed to march and fight to stay warm, experts now aver.
                The Vietnam War was fought during an era when the best and the brightest were certain that planet Earth was entering a new Ice Age. This assertion was found severely wanting during the stiflingly hot Vietnam summers at the time, causing one expert to remark, “I don’t get it. It seems like the weather is always changing!”
                The Gulf Wars are generally thought of as being the result of failed Bush Era policies. This, at least, is one point upon which experts can still agree, though they also blame Bush Era policies for a rapid increase in global warming.
                As for the War on Women, many astute observers note that the warmer it is, the worse women are treated. In many parts of Africa and the Middle East, for example, women are treated like chattel or livestock, and possess virtually no rights. There are compelling arguments, discerning experts claim, for believing that, as the northern climes heat up, women in places like the U.S., Canada, the Netherlands and Finland will succumb to overt brutality as well.

Biden Says Trump's Comments Are Assault, Bill's Assaults "Shouldn't Matter"

                Vice President Joe Biden, in an interview aired recently on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” claimed that Donald Trump’s 2005 comments about groping women qualify as “sexual assault” and “abuse of power.” Conversely- and perversely- he ‘argues’ that ‘allegations’ of sexual harassment/misconduct/rape levied against former President (and soon to be First Man) Bill Clinton “shouldn’t matter” in terms of the upcoming election.
                Continuing the left’s full frontal assault on the proper use of language (and gray matter), Biden opined: “What (Trump) said is textbook definition of sexual assault,” proving that he has never read the textbook definition of sexual assault. He continued by averring: “This is not a guy who should be representing the United States.”
                Right. Can’t have the private citizen who engaged in a bit of locker room banter represent the U.S.; much better to have the alleged serial rapist, a man who actually committed adultery while he was an elected representative of the people- in the Oval Office of the White House- and the woman he cheated on (who defended him and continues to excoriate those her adulterous hubby harassed) retake the reins of American power.
                Dear God.
                Biden added: “I can’t make excuses for Bill Clinton. But he paid the price. He was impeached, expressed deep sorrow.” So the fact that he was impeached is a plus, absolves him from any current scrutiny?
                I’m sure if Pat Nixon had run for president after her husband Richard M. Nixon resigned before he could be impeached, ‘Tricky Dick’ would’ve received the same pass the press is giving Bill now, right? “He was nearly impeached, resigned in disgrace, so he’s good. Paid his dues. Shouldn’t matter.”
                (You folks conflicted, those of you sitting on the fence, need to think long and hard about who the real bullies and crazies are. If you aren’t familiar with the contents of the Wikileaks email dumps, the FBI reports, the Project Veritas videos, etc., etc., you really aren’t informed enough to cast a legitimate vote).
                After the release of the Trump audiotape, Biden tweeted: “The words are demeaning. Such behavior is an abuse of power. It’s not lewd. It’s sexual assault.” Sexual assault, by definition, involves “rape” or physical “molestation.” The definition of lewd is “obscene or indecent, as in language or songs.”
                Michelle Obama claimed to be “shaken to her core” by Trump’s comments, yet she and Barack have welcomed numerous rap ‘artists’ to the White House, and have called Beyoncé a “perfect role model for their daughters.”
                Wanna see lewd? Wanna read sexual assault lyrics set to ‘music,’ made into an ‘art form’? Check out some of her songs, and those of the other rappers the Obamas have feted.
                If, perchance, you have been bamboozled by the Democrats cowed and compliant media accomplices, but no longer wish to be complicit any longer in this evil charade, and if you truly respect honesty, independence, integrity and reason,  please consider sharing this post with others.

High School Teacher Smears Trump Supporters

                 A Smithtown High School West teacher’s recent social media post has spawned controversy. The Long Island educator labeled some of her students “racist” simply for supporting the Republican presidential candidate, Donald trump. The post read, “This week is spirit week at Smithtown HS West. It’s easy to spot which students are racist by the Trump gear they’re sporting for USA Day.”
                Students at the school reacted in various ways to the obviously vile, false and intolerant post. One said, “It’s not a good idea because then like she influences the students with the same ideas.” Another student’s parent exclaimed: “There’s no reason for her to pass judgment on those kids on a social platform.”
                And another parent stated, “I’m not big on social media, but I think that in the classroom they need to show both sides.”
                A majority of people voted for Barack Obama- in part because he is black- with no repercussions. But if one plans to vote for the white male candidate in the upcoming election, they must literally prepare to be assaulted.
                It is easy to spot who is racist and intolerant…by their reaction to Trump gear.
                And it is just as easy to spot who detests traditional Catholics, conservatives, Sanders supporters, “needy Latinos,” Trump supporters, southerners, and “everyday Americans” by the Clinton gear they sport, isn’t it?

American Voters Slouching Towards Gomorrah

                 Too many American voters, including the vast majority of liberals or “Progressives,” now ask themselves only three questions when deciding who gets their vote:

1)    Who will give me the most money, let me work less for the same money, or- preferably!- give me more money for working less?
2)     Who will hammer the rich hardest?
3)    Who will legalize polyamory/necrophilia/incest/(fill-in-the-blank with your personal favorite debauched activity that you want recognized as equal to or perhaps even more enlightened than boring, old potentially procreative sex between a married man and woman).

                We are divided now. On one side are those that believe in America’s founding principles. On the other are those that don’t, don’t know what they are/were, or don’t even care. We are on our way to becoming a nation primarily divided between those who believe in Sharia Law on the one hand, and underemployed, drug-addled, debauched, ignoramuses on the other.
                Cue Stealer’s Wheel now: “There’s clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am stuck in the middle with you.” Is it any wonder those in the middle (middle of the country, middle class, etc.) are ticked off?

                Listen carefully and you can hear the Founders…gently weeping.

James Madison University Bans 35 Phrases From Campus Use

                 James Madison would be appalled. At the university named after the esteemed founder and “Father of the Constitution,” this year’s freshman orientation leaders were given a list of 35 things they were to avoid saying. The verboten phrases included “you have such a pretty face,” and “love the sinner, hate the sin.”
                These demonic ditties “widen the diversity gap” and do not “create a safe and inclusive environment,” according to a seven-page handout given to the tolerant and inclusive young scholars. According to The College Fix, the list appears to be adapted from a book by Dr. Maura Cullen titled, “35 Dumb Things Well-Intended People Say: Surprising Things We Say that Widen the Diversity Gap.” In each case, an explanation was given as to why the phrase should be avoided.
                Bill Wyatt, James Madison University’s director of communications, told the website via email that “this was just an exercise, prior to orientation, to get our volunteers to understand how language affects others.” However, page one of the handout states that orientation leaders should “use this handout as a resource” to help accomplish the goal of creating a “safe and inclusive environment for your first year students.” The handout also instructed the volunteers to “take some time to reflect on your prejudices and biases, and how that might affect your interactions with students.”
                Per The College Fix, here are the top 35 dumb things to avoid saying on campus, with my own comments and/or explanations as to why they should be avoided like a back-alley hooker:

1. “Some of my best friends are …”-by attempting to be inclusive you are labeling and being exclusive
2. “I know exactly how you feel.”-
not possible for a white male
3. “I don’t think of you as -as a what?
4. “The same thing happens to me too.”-it can’t, because you are not the other person/minority
5. “It was only a joke! Don’t take things so seriously.”-
screw you, that’s easy for you to say, Reginald (the straight, wealthy) Whiteboy
6. What do ‘your’ people think.”- okay, this one I wouldn’t use, but “your people” refer to themselves this way frequently (“my people,” “our people”)
7. “What are you?” or “Where are you really from?”-
8. “I don’t see color” or “I’m color blind.”-
you are blind to our pain…and a liar!
9. “You are so articulate.”-
that certainly is a vicious slur on a college campus today
10. “It is so much better than it used to be. Just be patient.”-
even after 8 years of Obama, American society is still permeated by injustice, so don’t tell me to be patient you bigoted assh*le
11. “You speak the language very well.”-the handout actually states that this phrase “also asserts that there is a proper way to speak English,” and “that all native English speakers are proficient.” First off, we wouldn’t want to say that any use of the language is any better or worse than any other, would we? And we’re paying how much for this level of excellence? Secondly, it does not assert that all native English speakers are proficient. (Ever heard Ryan Lochte, Harry Reid, Roseanne Barr, or Donald Trump speak?)
12. Asking black people about their hair or hygiene
.-but asking other folks about theirs is okay?
13. Saying to LBGTQ people “what you do in the privacy of your own bedroom is your business.”-this is supposed to- hurtfully- minimize the breadth and depth of their relationship outside of the boudoir. I suggest just adding “-or wherever-” after bedroom and you should be golden, so to speak.
14. “Yes, but you are a ‘good’ one.”-
a phrase that has never been uttered on campus about a conservative, white male
15. “You have such a pretty face.”-
supposedly this phrase actually means, “if only you weren’t fat.” Then does the phrase, “you have nice ta-tas” actually mean “if only you had a nice butt?”
16. “I never owned slaves.”-like that absolves you from being complicit in my people’s plight, assh*ole.
17. “If you are going to live in this country, learn to speak the language!”- outrageous even to think such a thing.
18. “She/he is a good person. She/he didn’t mean anything by it.”-
I bet they aren’t/did.
19. “When I’ve said the same thing to other people like you, they don’t mind.”- this is offensive. Even if we all are the same, there is no one like you!
20. Calling women “girls, honey, sweetie pie” or other familiar terms.-
I’ve been called honey, dear and sweetie by females many, many more times than I’ve ever called females by the same terms…and I love it!
21. When people of color say, “It is not the same thing.”-probably is.
22. When people of faith say, “Love the sinner, hate the sin.”-
guess you either aren’t supposed to believe that sin exists or are supposed to love the sin, too.
23. When white men say, “We are the ones being discriminated against now!”-
I know exactly how you feel…some of my best friends are white, and the same thing has happened to me!
24. Referring to older people as “cute.”-what a heinous crime against humanity! Must make ‘em feel terrible!
25. Asking a transgender person, “What are you really? A man or a woman?”-I know, I know…whatever they identify as at that moment is what they are…at that moment. (I think “they” is the right pronoun!)
26. Referring to the significant other, partner, or spouse of a same gender couple as their “friend.”-
cowardice! The proper thing to do is emphasize the sexual ways they use their non-complimentary genitalia!
27. “Why do ‘they’ (fill in the blank) always have to sit together? They are always sticking together.”-
guess minorities can be non-inclusive, too.
28. “People just need to pick themselves up by their bootstraps.”-
isn’t it better if the government carries you to bed?
29. People with disabilities are “courageous.”-what sick bleep would let that comment escape his abled mouth?
30. “That’s so gay/queer. That’s so retarded.”-pretty sure this/these one(s) is/are long out of favor.
31. “I don’t see difference. We are all part of the same race, the human race.”-
well that’s just offensive on its face.
32. I don’t care if you are pink, purple or orange, I treat all people the same.”-but what if people are fuchsia, mauve and teal?
33. Asking a transgender person, “Have you had the operation.”-
much better to ask, “have you surgically swapped your genitalia lately, or are you just pretending to be the opposite sex?”
34. Saying to a Jewish person, “You are so lucky to have ‘your’ Christmas spread over a week!”-
bet it’s because you can make a few more sheckels; and, anyway, you can’t say “Christmas” on campus anymore, anyhow.
35. “Here’s another book on political correctness.”-here’s another book

Satanists Rising

                America, at first blush, would seem a highly unlikely place for Devil worship to take root. Sadly, that is just what appears to be occurring. Satanists are becoming main-stream.  In fact, explicitly satanic groups have begun drawing attention to themselves in the context of public governmental ceremonies.
                The Satanic Temple, of which I’ve previously written, wasn’t founded until 2013, yet has seven chapters in the U.S. and Europe and a membership of over 100,000. It fights for “political change” and is, of course, virulently opposed to conservatism. It is currently attempting to embed Lucifer in the public school system via “After School Satan” clubs. (See my post of August 2nd, 2016). They have met with some success and currently boast A.S.S. clubs (my acronym, not theirs) in nine school systems. The Satanic Temple also aims to place demonic books on the shelves of public school libraries, and have satanic prayers recited at high school games.
                And now the Satanic Temple has a new international headquarters…in Salem, Massachusetts. So far, residents and business owners alike seem at ease with adding Satanists to their city’s mix of Wiccans, Warlocks, and faiths outside of the mainstream. Dominick Pangallo, Salem Mayor Kimberley Driscoll’s chief of staff, claims that they have only received “a total of four phone calls” from people concerned about their town becoming the World Headquarters of the Church of Satan. Live and let live as they say. The city has traded Puritans for Satanists. Progress…pass it on!
            In recent months, satanic invocations were given at several different city council meetings around the United States. According to various online and newspaper reports, a member of the Satanic Temple was allowed to make an opening “prayer” to Lucifer at a Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting last month. Local resident and Satanic Temple member Iris Fontana started off the invocation by stating: "Let us stand now unbowed and unfettered by arcane doctrines born of fearful minds in darkened times. Let us embrace the Luciferian impulse to eat of the tree of knowledge and dissipate our blissful and comforting delusions of old. Let us demand that individuals be judged for their concrete actions, not their fealty to arbitrary social norms and illusory categorizations.”
                She ended the prayer with “Hail Satan.”
                Council members stood in a circle with remarkable sanguinity as she spoke.
                In July another Satanist was allowed to give an invocation prior to a Pensacola, Florida city council meeting. Observers say that these invocations seem to be mostly a call for people to turn against their religious beliefs and embrace agnosticism. These satanic prayers have sparked debate about whether city councils should just do away altogether with their traditions of opening meetings with prayer.
                That, of course, is exactly what the Satanists want.

                You know what they say: “Talk of the devil and he is sure to appear.” If we continue with this devil-may-care attitude, there will be hell to pay.

The E.U. Presses British Press

                The European Union (EU) has directed Britain to crack down on its media. The EU, still smarting from Brexit, actually stated that the British press should not report when terrorists are Muslims. This directive was just one in a slew of demands the EU issued to the new British government.
                Could there be a better reminder of why Brexit passed to begin with?
                A European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) report found an increase in hate speech and racist violence in the UK from 2009 to 2016. ECRI Chair Christian (!) Ahlund blamed the free press, sniffing: “It is no coincidence that racist violence is on the rise in the UK at the same time as we see worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech in the newspapers, online and even among politicians.”
                 The worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech he should be concerned with are those of bombings, shooting, beheadings and stabbings committed by Islamic terrorists, Allahu Akbar!
                The report lists 23 recommendations to Theresa May’s government, including changes to criminal law, equality law, and freedom of the press, while urging the government to “give more rigorous training” to reporters. (That is either a non-sequitur or a preposterous euphemism, or both).
                Unable to resist the urge to comment on the historic Brexit vote, Ahlund snarkily opined: “The Brexit referendum seems to have led to a further rise in ‘anti-foreigner’ sentiment, making it even more important that the British authorities take the steps outlined in our report as a matter of priority.”
                Mr. Ahlund, you don’t have the right to meddle in a free and sovereign nation’s business or tell that country’s free press how to behave.

                It’s good to be gone, isn’t it, Brits?
