Here’s a unique way pregnant women are celebrating life! Women are commissioning an artist in England to paint their swollen bellies with unique and child-based images that are vivid and full of imagination.

Here is more and some of the amazing drawings:

In addition to doing more typical commissioned paintings, English artist My Little Sweet-pea is available for “Bump Painting.” Dozens of women have hired her to create temporary body art for their pregnant bellies.

Some women choose children’s stories as their theme; others pick an image that signifies the life growing within them; and some just want a beautiful picture. Here are some examples…

Here is a powerful video with a pro-life theme that you should spend two minutes watching.

technologyDave Andrusko of the National Right to Life Committee tells us why this video is so amazing:

It’s been a long, long time since I was a first-time dad trying frantically to figure out what to do (in the absence of my wife) when our newborn daughter would cry, seemingly inconsolable.

This afternoon, thanks to pro-life blogger Chelsea Zimmerman, I was vividly reminded of the rush of emotions lo those many years ago. She linked to a video whose closing line for the two-minute long video is “Technology can never replace love.”

First shot: a little baby is crying her lungs out and a young dad leaps from his chair (where he was probably sleeping) and races to the crib. What to do? What else? Uses his smart phone to call mom, who is shopping.

What should I do, he asks, she won’t stop crying? Maybe she’s hungry. In a hilarious moment, he takes a quick look down, realizes he isn’t carrying the necessary equipment (so to speak). What else? Well, use the phone to show her the dancing penguins. Nope, no dice, she cries louder.

Find out what happens next…

Imperial President ObamaEvery day it seems like I hear another Republican who says – in public – that immigration reform, in fact, is not dead and the votes are there to pass it. This would be disastrous for this country and the people know it.

Just how disastrous?

Michael Snyder at End of The American Dream came up with a pretty exhaustive list of facts regarding illegal immigration that you’re not going to hear from CBS, CNN, or even Fox News:

You’re sure to find at least half a dozen that’ll make you go ‘hmm’..

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

The idea here, according to Snyder is that Americans need to step up to the plate as they did during the GWB presidency when the effort to legalize all who are illegal and more was thwarted by us citizens.

We’re not going to get help from Democrats or Republicans, folks. People to contact their representatives in Congress and demand that they vote against this Amnesty bill that was passed in the Senate and any other attempt at what will end up being just another Amnesty.

If folks realized how devastating it would be, they’d get on the phone and start pushing back:

  1.  57 percent of all households that are led by an immigrant (legal or illegal) are enrolled in at least one welfare program.

  2. According to one study, the cost to U.S. taxpayers of legalizing current illegal immigrants would be approximately 6.3 trillion dollars over the next 50 years.

  3. The Obama administration has distributed flyers that tell illegal immigrants that their immigration status will not be checked when they apply for food stamps.

  4. The Department of Homeland Security says that it has lost track of a million people that have entered this illegalalienvoters-300x300country but that appear never to have left.

  5. One out of every five children living in Los Angeles County has a parent that is in the country illegally.

  6. In one recent year, taxpayers in Los Angeles County spent 600 million dollars on welfare for children of illegal immigrants.

  7. Thanks to illegal immigration, California’s overstretched health care system is on the verge of collapse. Dozens of California hospitals and emergency rooms have shut down over the past decade because they could not afford to stay open after being endlessly swamped by illegal immigrants who were simply not able to pay for the services that they were receiving. As a result, the remainder of the health care system in the state of California is now beyond overloaded. This had led to brutally long waits, diverted ambulances and even unnecessary patient deaths. At this point, the state of California now ranks dead last out of all 50 states in the number of emergency rooms per million people.

  8. It has been estimated that U.S. taxpayers spend $12,000,000,000 a year on primary and secondary school education for the children of illegal immigrants.12 trillion

  9. It is estimated that illegal aliens make up approximately 30 percent of the population in federal, state and local prisons and that the total cost of incarcerating them is more than $1.6 billion annually.

  10. The federal government actually has a website that teaches immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States.

  11. The Obama administration recently introduced the very first “unmanned” border station along the Texas-Immigration-PiperMexico border.

  12. The Obama administration has sued individual states such as Arizona that have tried to crack down on illegal immigration.

  13. According to the FBI, there are approximately 1.4 million gang members living in our cities. Illegal immigration has been one of the primary factors that has fueled the growth of these gangs.

  14. As I have written about previously, there are only about 200 police officers assigned to Chicago’s Gang Enforcement Unit to handle the estimated 100,000 gang members living in the city.

  15. Mexican drug cartels make approximately 6.6 billion dollars a year “exporting” illegal drugs to the United States.

  16. It is an open secret that Mexican drug cartels are openly conducting military operations inside the United Resist AmnestyStates. The handful of border patrol agents that we have guarding the border are massively outgunned and outmanned.

  17. According to the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center, Mexican drug cartels were actively operating in 50 different U.S. cities in 2006. By 2010, that number had skyrocketed to 1,286.

  18. Overall, more than 55,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence in Mexico since 2006. That same level of violence will eventually show up in major U.S. cities unless something dramatic is done about illegal immigration.

  19. It is being projected that the Senate immigration bill will bring 33 million more people to the United States over the next decade.

obama-border-is-open-378x257Michael also notes that our immigration system is completely broken, but these days we cannot even have a rational debate about these issues.  In politically correct America, illegal immigrants have become a “favored class” of people that you are never supposed to say anything bad about.

One of the very few things that the federal government is actually required to do by the U.S. Constitution is to defend our borders, and unfortunately the Obama administration has willingly chosen to leave our borders completely wide open.

This is a president who has abdicated his duties under our Constitution.

Why is he still there?

muslim-terror-300x180Apaches and Javelin defense systems are heading off to Qatar as part of our wonderful relationship with the terror-sponsoring nation that also happens to share close ties with Hamas and Al Qaeda. The weapons are valued at $11 billion.11 billion reported that the Qataris will also be privy to “the main sub-components of the ECS [Engagement Control System]..The ECS is air conditioned, pressurized (to resist chemical/biological attack), and shielded against electromagnetic pulse (EMP).”

That is very ironic given we aren’t even protecting ourselves from EMPs and we could do so relatively cheaply.

Qatar is the country where the five Taliban terrorists were released in exchange for deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

Congressman Brad Sherman recently called out Qatar for its funding of Hamas.

Qatar’s royal family are tied to Al Qaeda. It is believed that they tipped off Khalid Sheik Mohammed when we were hunting him down.

Our ally, Saudi Arabia, has threatened to blockade Qatar over their terrorism resulting from their close

ties with Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.

At the end of 2010, Qatar was labeled the worst on counter terrorism efforts, the New York Times reported.

We are giving $11 billion to these friends of Hamas, who are at war with our ally Israel, while we are at the same time preparing to fire 30,000 soldiers over the next 17 months so we can bring our Army down to the size of Turkey’s.  Also at the same time, Congress is pushing the Enlist Act which will encourage illegal aliens to join the military. The Pentagon is also looking to keep and seek out Muslim military.

Obamas IRS GestapoIn August of 2010, almost three years before Lois Lerner announced at a law conference that the IRS had indeed targeted certain groups, Z Street — a non-profit organization dedicated to “educating the public about Zionism” — filed a lawsuit contending it was being targeted by the IRS because it disagreed with President Obama’s policy on Israel. In fact Z Street filed its suit against the IRS after an agent allegedly told the group that Obama directed the tax collection agency to “give special scrutiny to organizations connected to Israel” and that the files of some of those “organizations were sent to a special unit in Washington, D.C. to determine whether the activities of the organization contradicted the public policies of the administration.”

In its lawsuit against the IRS, Z Street alleges that the IRS violated the First Amendment when it implemented a policy that subjected Israel-related organizations applying for tax-exempt status to more rigorous review procedures than other organizations applying for that same status. The group call this viewpoint discrimination.

Ironically, Z Street’s case received a boost last summer when Democrats tried to defend the administration and prove the IRS was not just engaging in viewpoint discrimination against politically conservative groups. As part of their defense, Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee along with Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.)​ released 14 IRS documents indicating the IRS created a category for review it labeled “progressive.”

Within that “progressive category” was a subset labeled “occupied territory advocacy” (page 12 of linked document). That particular subset contained only

one organization: Z Street. According to the documents, a notice to IRS inspectors to “be on the look out” (BOLO) for groups under this category was sent on August 6, 2010, just days after Z Street’s file was reviewed.

In other words, the IRS was indeed singling out applications for tax exempt status on the basis of a particular political viewpoint, advocating for the “occupied territories” which is inconsistent with this administration’s.

The Manager of the IRS Touch and Go (“TAG”) Group stated under oath, after Z Street brought its lawsuit against the IRS for viewpoint discrimination, that he concluded, based upon Z Street’s application for tax exempt status and other submissions that Z Street’s file should be sent to the TAG Group, #7830.

The TAG Group manager based his decision upon his view that Z Street might be engaged in the funding of terrorism because “there is a higher risk of terrorism in Israel.”

However after taking a look at the 14 documents related to the case released by Levin:

  • Nowhere in any of the 14 documents is any organization’s application referred to any group for anything related to the potential funding of terrorism.
  • Nowhere in any of the 14 documents is there even any mention of terrorism.
  • The 14 IRS documents released by the House Ways and Means Committee contained a category, created by IRS employees, entitled “Occupied Territory Advocacy.”
  • The category for “Occupied Territory Advocacy” had only one organization referred to it, and the notice to IRS inspectors to “Be on the Look Out” for groups under this category was sent on August 10, 2010, just days after Z Street’s file was reviewed, and a determination was made to send the file to the TAG Group, according to IRS statements.
  • The sole entity in the “Occupied Territory Advocacy” category was referred to TAG Group #7830, which is where Z Street’s file was sent, according to IRS statements.
  • The “Occupied Territory Advocacy” category appeared on the August 12, 2010, the November 9, 2010 and the November 16, 2010 IRS documents released on June 24, but it was not present in the next document, dated February 2, 2011, or any of the subsequent 10 IRS documents.
  • Z Street’s application was “put on hold” by the IRS because it brought its lawsuit against the Service, as the IRS explained in a court filing in January, 2011. Once Z STREET’s application was no longer under consideration, the category disappeared.

Obama's IRS GestapoThe IRS has defended itself in the Z Street lawsuit on several different grounds, including the absurd notion that the government is immune from such a lawsuit.

However after four year of IRS delay tactics, two months ago a U.S, District Judge rejected the Obama administration efforts to stop Z Street’s legal challenge, giving the organization a green light to go after the IRS.

In her ruling Judge Ketanje Brown Jackson wrote:

Z Street merely asks the Court to require the IRS to go about it[s] usual business of evaluating Section 501(c)(3) applications in a manner that comports with the Constitution. The only matter at issue in the instant lawsuit is whether, in addition to evaluating Z Street’s activities as it would any other organizations, the IRS may constitutionally apply a more stringent standard of review that is allegedly reserved for organizations whose activities relate to the promotion of Israel.

Last week the case began its discovery phase.

The Z Street case has the potential of blowing the IRS scandal wide open. First of all, it is the furthest along, and probably will be decided first. The group’s attorneys can put on the stand the IRS employee who said Z Street were being scrutinized because its policy is different than the Obama administration’s, and the lack of terrorism in any of the documents released by Levin indicates that the TAG manager who said Z Street was being examined because of terrorism in Israel may have been committing perjury.

Despite all the evidence in the Z Street case, the FBI attorney who is supposedly investigating the case has not contacted them. Z Street President Lori Lowenthal Marcus wasn’t contacted by the Ways and Means Committee; she was forced to contact them. According to Lowenthal Marcus, they listened and chose to focus on the politically conservative groups. And of course with the exception of the Wall Street Journal and Fox News, most of the media, including the conservative media, haven’t covered the Z Street case.

Z Street President Lori Lowenthal Marcus was a guest on the Hump Day Report Radio program this past Wednesday. If you wish to hear the interview and learn more about the case, click here.

As seen on The Kelly File

ISIS is reportedly forcing Christians out of Iraq’s second largest city and has torched an 1,800-year-old church.

Megyn Kelly last night reported that the terrorist organization gave Christians a Saturday deadline: Leave, convert to Islam or die.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins was on “The Kelly File” tonight to discuss this.

“I’m not sure what’s more shocking, the atrocities of ISIS or the silence of the Obama administration,” he said.

Perkins explained that Iraq is home to some of the longest surviving Christian communities.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin rejected overtures from True Blood‘s producers for

Click on image to see movie trailer and more

a cameo role on the conservative-bashing vampire show. Her instincts proved to be correct after Sunday’s HBO episode in which Republican women were once again demeaned when one of the lead characters said in horror, “Oh my God, I’m a Republi-c*nt.”

Palin told Breitbart News after she heard about the misogynistic episode that she simply wondered, “‘True Blood’ or true gall?”

“The brilliant minds of ‘True Blood’ were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman in person instead of just all conservative women in general,” Palin told Breitbart News. “Their offer wasn’t presented in any negative way, perhaps to benefit from a surprise factor after the guest appearance. I turned them down anyway.”

Palin also had some choice words for hypocritical Hollywood liberals who often gin up the phony “war on women” rhetoric.

“To producers who throw these deceitfully ‘flattering’ bones that sound fun on the surface, is it really any wonder I don’t accept your offers to participate in your shows?” she said. “Nice try HBO. I’d put any mama grizzly in America against a vampire any day; for only one of them actually exists. The left wants to talk about a ‘war on women’? Keep engaging in your misogynist attacks on women you disagree with and we’ll see who wins your self-inflicted war in the court of decent public opinion.”

Men Love Darkness because they know

On Sunday’s episode, as Breitbart TV explained, two of the characters crashed a Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fundraiser at the George W. Bush Presidential Library that they said only lets in “a**sholes.” The fundraiser ended up turning into a bloodbath:

While HBO’s Award winning “True Blood” a popular vampire drama has had a long-running narrative with the bad guys cast as southern conservative politicians, last night’s episode took it a step farther, calling Ted Cruz supporters a**holes and offensively referring to conservative woman in eveningware as “republic**ts”

When two of the main characters, vampires Eric Northman and Pam De Beaufort, are planning to crash a fictional fundraiser for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) held at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas they are warned “They only let in a**holes.”

While dressing for the event in cowboy hats and Western evening attire Pam De Beaufort says “Oh my God I’m a republic**t”

And finally De Beaufort enters the gala proclaiming “Of all the horrible things I’ve seen in the last hundred years this could be the most disturbing.”
