Oops: Obama Administration Calls Unborn Baby a Child

Published

on

The truth is often like a big beach ball being held under water. You can only hold it down for so long before it comes bursting out.
Even with the most ardent abortion supporters who have to be extremely careful with how they label and define what a person is inside the womb and out, the truth still finds a way to leak out. Maybe instead of the beach ball analogy, we can think of a leaky dam.
Everyone knows the Obama Administration’s official stance on abortion. They say that women have an absolute right to do with their body what they want without interference from anyone else, including the government. In order for that line of reasoning to work, they have to consider the baby inside the mother to be a part of her body. They have to be careful with making sure they never refer to a fetus as a person, a child, or an individual. They know that as soon as they do, then logically, they’ll have to acknowledge that that person deserves the protection of the law. If those unborn children deserve the protection of the law, then the government could never allow abortion. So, they have to play word games to get around those inconvenient truths.
But every now and then, they make Freudian slips. CNS News reported on a document released by the Administration having to do with food stamps and why their value needs to be increased and why they need to be made more available:

The paper says women are “mothers” while still only pregnant. And one of the paper’s key points — printed in bold in the executive summary — is: The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program’s “positive impact on children begins even before birth and lasts well beyond their childhood years.”

The paper elaborates: “Recent research focusing on the rollout of the Food Stamp Program in the 1960s and 1970s shows the benefits begin even before a child is born: mothers who receive Food Stamps during pregnancy have a reduced incidence of low-birth weight babies by between 5 and 12 percent.”

At one point, the authors of the White House paper try to build a rhetorical barrier between “children” and their purported precursors who once lived “in utero.” But even here, they use precisely one of the terms Obama used 14 years ago when voting against calling a born baby who has survived an abortion an individual.

“Individuals who receive food assistance in utero or as children may continue to reap the benefits decades after initial exposure,” says the paper.

Are these the kind of “individuals” Obama believes you can constitutionally kill?

The very next sentence of the White House paper says, “A growing body of research suggests that health investments in utero have important long-run implications.”

There you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth. Even the pro-abortion Obama Administration acknowledges that “fetuses” are individuals and children. I’m sure it was just a minor slip of the tongue.

Stanford ‘Supports Human Rights,’ But Takes $58 Million From Most Abusive Nation on Earth China

California’s Stanford is the happy recipient of $58 million in funds from China, one of the worst human rights abusers in the world.

Published

Even as it pretends that it is supportive of “human rights,” California’s Stanford University is the happy recipient of $58 million in funds from China, one of the worst human rights abusers in the world.

The College Fix reminds us of Stanford’s blatant, anti-American hypocrisy.

At a San Francisco gala in March 2014, Stanford University President John Hennessy accepted an award for the school’s “Advancement in U.S.-China Relations.”

The award was granted by the Committee of 100, a group of Chinese Americans in business, government, academia and the arts, and the school boasted about it on its website.

Stanford began accepting Chinese graduate students back in the 1970s. In 2009, the school signed a contract to open a Chinese government-funded Confucius Institute, with the goal of promoting Chinese culture and language. In 2012, under Hennessy’s oversight, the Stanford Center at Peking University opened, billed as a “hub” for Stanford students in China.

Along with the school’s close relationship with the Red Chinese, Stanford took $58.1 million from China during the period of 2014 to 2020.

“Hypocrisy is the price of funding from China,” National Association of Scholars Policy Director Rachelle Peterson told College Fix.

“Colleges and universities declare themselves protectors of human rights and a safe place for the vulnerable. Yet they embrace the Chinese Communist Party and are complicit in the stifling of free speech,” he added.

Meanwhile, On May 1, the National Association of Scholars sent to Congress a list of 86 Chinese-sponsored Confucius Institutes attached to American universities, including six that were set to close in the summer of 2020. In March, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) issued a warning to universities that Confucius Institutes were “fronts for Chinese propaganda.”

The FBI also warned that these associations act as a means for Chinese spies to walk right in and steal the research that U.S. universities conduct.

“They can also provide an opportunity to spot, assess, and befriend fellow STEM students or researchers who might assist—either wittingly or unwittingly—in passing your research and development to a foreign adversary,” the FBI added.

Congress should seriously consider making these associations illegal.

Seattle Held ‘Segregated’ Training Session On ‘Undoing Whiteness,’ Encouraging Staffers To Forfeit ‘Guaranteed Physical Safety’

Published

By

Seattle held a ‘segregated’ training session on ‘undoing whiteness,’ encouraging staffers to forfeit ‘guaranteed physical safety.’

Christopher Rufo, an editor for City Journal and director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty, said he filed a public records request regarding the training session. On Monday, he published copies of the materials distributed to employees in the session on his Twitter account.

According to his screenshots, the Office of Civil Rights hosted a two-and-a-half-hour “Training on Internalized Racial Superiority for White People.”

Fox News:

The City of Seattle held a racially segregated employee training session aimed at White staffers and instructing them on “undoing your own whiteness” in order to be held accountable by people of color, according to documents obtained by a public records request.

The session took place on June 12, as protesters took part in the so-called “Capitol Hill Organized Protest” in the Capitol Hill district.

One handout distributed in the session reportedly declared how “racism is not our fault but we are responsible.” Another said White staffers must give up “the land” and their “guaranteed physical safety” in order to be an “accomplice” for racial justice.

Protesters Storm Baptist Church, Harass Children, Assault Parishioners (Video)

Black Lives Matters protesters have been threatening and harassing attendees of Grace Baptist Church as they enter the building for the past few weeks.

Video footage shows no one is safe from harassment regardless of age or race. There is also a video of these leftwing BLM agitators entering the sanctuary to disrupt church services.

Daily Wire:

Videos posted on social media show parishioners, both black and white, being harassed and physically assaulted at Grace Baptist Church in Troy, New York.

The protesters, repeatedly shouting “Black Lives Matter,” even harassed and blocked churchgoers while they were with their young children, using a megaphone to scream at the families, shaming and threatening their parents with calls to CPS, or Child Protective Services.

The assaults, harassment, and protesting have been occurring since at least the end of June, according to the viral videos posted online. The church has refused to close or backdown, directing men from the parish to help escort fellow worshipers inside as they are blocked by BLM protesters.

Grace Baptist Church made headlines last month for giving away an AR-15 as a prize for a church raffle. When the giveaway was first reported, Pastor John Koletas told WNYT that the church held it in solidarity with hunters and gun owners who have been “viciously attacked by anti-Christian socialist policies.” One local critic told WRGB at the time that the giveaway exhibited “extreme poor taste,” citing “all of the shootings going on in all of our communities.” More

Where is their mayor? Governor? They need to stop this insanity. People have a right to protest but not to be able to go into churches and harass and assault people.

‘Hamilton’ Musical Once Praised, Now Slammed by Wokesters for Celebrating American Founders

The wokesters are now out the cancel celebrated rap musical ‘Hamilton.”

Published

on

Only five years ago the rap musical Hamilton was praised as high art and an important achievement. But now, the Black Lives Matter haters are slamming the musical for daring to lionize the founding fathers.

When Lin-Manuel Miranda unveiled Hamilton in 2015, he was hailed as a genius and celebrated for bringing the history of the founding to a new generation of people.

But now he is already being attacked for the play. Why? because he wrote his play about the founders who today’s Black Lives Matter terrorists want to see destroyed, not celebrated in a play.

First of all, before we get to the fools attacking the play today, we must dispense with this idiotic claim that Hamilton is anything but fake history created with racism at its heart — anti-white racism.

Miranda’s play is not “history.” It is garbage. The fact that he puts blacks in the roles of white men is absurd. And rap is not music, anyway, so let’s get beyond all this nonsense that Hamilton is important art. It is woke garbage not worth being celebrated.

But, even if those who have been celebrating it since 2015 were right that it is a great piece of work, Hamilton has already become the newest thing to cancel by anti-American, woke activists.

Over the July 4th weekend, Hamilton began trending on Twitter as BLM wokesters began attacking it for daring to say that America’s founding was a good thing.

As The Blaze reported:

“Are y’all ready to talk about how problematic Hamilton is? Lin Manuel Miranda created a piece of work that used hip hop (a genre created by black people) to tell the story of colonizers and slave owners,” one Twitter user wrote.

“As much as I love the show, it and it’s writer are deeply problematic,” another wrote. “I’ve intentionally or unintentionally ignored these things for years, but I’m trying to fix this now so I can fully contextualize and understand Hamilton and it’s effect as a whole.”

“Hamilton is deeply problematic in concept and so is Lin Manuel Miranda to some degree,” another person tweeted.

“I mean I think the fact that a musical like Hamilton (which is deeply problematic and nationalist) has to exist in order for non-white actors to have a space on Broadway is just very indicative of how non-white stories will never be able to thrive on this elitist medium,” another person said.

“Reminder for all y’all Hamilton watching mofos: Hamilton was a racist slaveowner, and casting POC as white bigots isn’t the reclamation you think it is,” read a tweet that had nearly 60,000 likes. “It’s a romanticized telling of a white man’s plights, so none of y’all better be stanning the founding fathers AGAIN.”

First they came for Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. Now they are coming after Lin-Manuel Miranda.

You reap what you sow, liberals.

Six Black Children Murdered in Violence Over Weekend — Black Lives Matter Silent

At least half a dozen black children were shot down in black neighborhoods over the Fourth of July holiday.

Home Invasion

At least half a dozen black children were shot down in black neighborhoods over the Fourth of July holiday, and yet Black Lives Matter is utterly silent.

Black children were murdered in Washington D.C. Chicago, and San Francisco over the weekend. But no one on the left seems to care even a tiny bit.

Per the Daily Wire:

In Washington, DC, 11-year-old Davon McNeal was preparing to leave a Fourth of July cookout with his mother when shooting broke out somewhere nearby. A bullet struck the youth football player in the head, killing him, according to The Washington Post.

“We just had a real genuine kid who wanted to get out of the neighborhood. That’s all he said is, ‘I’m gonna make it,’” McNeal’s football coach Kevin McGill said remembering the boy’s dreams of playing in the pros. “These kids’ lives are being robbed over nothing.”

Just under 90 people have been killed in Washington, DC this year, a roughly 17% increase over last year. 2019 ended with the most people killed in the city in a decade.

D.C. was not the only Democrat-led city to see a child murdered.

In Atlanta, 8-year-old Secoriea Turner was killed. Thirty others were killed in Atlanta that weekend, too.

Moving west, in Chicago 7-year-old Natalia Wallace and a 14-year-old boy whose name has not yet been released were murdered.

Next up, in Hoover, Ala., 8-year-old Royta Giles Jr. was killed in the city.

Finally, a 6-year-old boy was shot and killed in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood.

So, have you heard Black Lives Matter lament these murders?

Nope.

One man from Atlanta took BLM to task over the 8-year old killed there.

“If this was a white police officer gunning down three blacks and injuring four, Wilson High School would be set on fire and every black leader, every community leader, would be up here,” the man told reporters. “Black Lives Matter, hands up. Blacks have murdered other blacks every 32 hours since June. I’ve been in this town all my life, I’m 56 years old, I am afraid of being shot and gunned down by a black man.”

“Again if this was a white police officer shooting and killing three blacks, people will be out here, the school will be on fire, people will be coming forward saying, ‘I saw this white police officer,’” he continued. “But because it’s black on black crime, it’s socially acceptable for blacks not to talk to The police. It is appalling. Every 32 hours since June, blacks have been murdering blacks, and you all have to do a better job.”

The Year of Stupid: Boeing Forces Exec to Resign Over 33-Year-Old Op-Ed Opposing Women in Combat

33 years ago, Boeing exec Niel Golightly wrote an op-ed wherein he opposed women in combat. Now he’s lost his job.

Published

on

Thirty-three years ago, Boeing executive Niel Golightly wrote an op-ed when he was a 29-year-old Navy Lt. wherein he opposed women n combat roles. Today, in the year of stupid, Boeing forced him to resign.

Until this week, Golightly was the head of communications for Boeing, but now he is out for having an opinion 33 years ago that was the prevailing, common opinion of nearly everyone but the most fringe activists at the time.

The then Navy Lt. had his op-ed in a magazine published by the U.S. Naval Institute. It is an outfit which describes itself as “an independent forum for those who dare to read, think, speak, and write to advance the professional, literary, and scientific understanding of sea power and other issues critical to global security.”

Who would have thought the magazine article printed in 1987 would be so troublesome after three decades?

In his op-ed, Golightly expressed the common feeling that introducing women into combat units would disrupt the dynamics necessary for a cohesive fighting unit.

“At issue is not whether women can fire M-60s, dogfight MiGs, or drive tanks. Introducing women into combat would destroy the exclusively male intangibles of war fighting and the feminine images of what men fight for—peace, home, family,” Golightly wrote, according to an excerpt published on the U.S. Naval Institute’s website.

Indeed, women were barred from combat in U.S. military forces from our founding all the way until Barack Obama broke down those barriers in 2013.

Absurdly, Golightly’s then extremely uncontroversial opinion has led to his job loss today.

“My article was a 29-year-old Cold War navy pilot’s misguided contribution to a debate that was live at the time,” Golightly said in a statement this week. “My argument was embarrassingly wrong and offensive. The article is not a reflection of who I am; but nonetheless I have decided that in the interest of the company I will step down.”

“Boeing does not agree with the views expressed in the article, and it does not reflect Niel’s views today,” the company added.

“Niel and I discussed at length the article and its implications for his role as the Company’s lead spokesman,” Boeing President and CEO David Calhoun said. “I want to emphasize our Company’s unrelenting commitment to diversity and inclusion in all its dimensions, and to ensuring that all of our employees have an equal opportunity to contribute and excel.”

David Calhoun, you are a morn.
