Sickening: Senator Who Voted Against Protecting Babies Sponsors Bill To Save Kittens


Reported By C. Douglas Golden | Published March 16, 2019 at 8:44am

Please don’t get me wrong. I like kittens. Cats, well, maybe not so much; I don’t see why you would keep and feed something that won’t even come when you call it and whose only trick is the ability to go to the bathroom in a pile of sand. But kittens, they’re adorable. I think we can all agree on that. I think we can also agree on the fact that kittens are less important than babies. No matter how cute the kitten, no matter how meme-worthy it is, human babies take precedence.

So, why is it that Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon introduced a bill that would save the lives of kittens used in research less than a month after helping Democrats successfully block legislation that would protect babies born alive during abortions?

According to NBC News, Merkley’s law was designed “to prevent the Department of Agriculture from continuing deadly experiments on kittens.”

“The agency has been breeding kittens in Beltsville, Maryland, and infecting them with a parasite that can cause toxoplasmosis, a foodborne illness. Scientists harvest the parasites from their stool for two to three weeks, and then euthanize and incinerate the cats,” they reported.

“The USDA’s decision to slaughter kittens after they are used in research is an archaic practice and horrific treatment, and we need to end it,” Merkley said in a statement.

There were plenty of great soundbites from advocates of the bill, including one individual from a watchdog group who called it “taxpayer-funded kitten slaughter.” (If there’s some sort of award for political blurb of the year, I would urge the judges to please consider that one seriously.)

“The USDA’s archaic kitten experiments are out of step with 21st-century research practices and animal welfare recommendations,” Hannah Shaw, founder of animal advocacy group Kitten Lady, said.

“Continuing to breed and kill perfectly healthy kittens for toxoplasmosis research is unethical and unnecessary, and I’m grateful to Senator Merkley for introducing the KITTEN Act to stop it once and for all.”

When it comes to animal welfare, however, Merkley is a bit less concerned about Homo sapiens.

The Oregon senator, as TheBlaze noted, was just one of the Democrats who blocked the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The bill would have extended protections for babies born alive during an abortion procedure, something that’s increasingly important now that we’ve seen states such as New York and Vermont pass bills which allows greater latitude when it comes to late-term abortions. (Oh, and there was that whole Ralph Northam kerfuffle we’ve all seemingly forgot about, too.)

In a statement, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins discussed the cruel paradox in Merkley’s votes.

“What do cats have that newborn babies don’t? Democrats’ support,” he wrote.

“In one of the sickest ironies no one is talking about, Senate liberals picked this moment — 17 days after they voted to kill America’s perfectly healthy infants — to fight for the humane treatment of kittens. Maybe the DNC’s strategists are out to lunch, or maybe the Left really is this shameless, but I can’t wait to see some of these politicians standing on debate platforms next year telling the American people that when it comes to protecting living things: We chose cats over kids.”

“‘The KITTEN Act will protect these innocent animals from being needlessly euthanized in government testing,’Merkley told reporters, ‘and make sure that they can be adopted by loving families instead.’Does he even hear himself? They should be treated and adopted? That’s exactly what Americans have requested for living, breathing babies. Democrats said no. Killing a child is a ‘personal decision,’ they said, and Congress shouldn’t get in the way.”

But then, the Democrats have decided to plant their flag upon abortion rights: Any sort of restriction upon the ability of a woman to get an abortion on demand and for the baby to be killed — no matter what — is automatically an interference in a decision that should only be made by a woman and her doctor.

Felines, however, are another story. They need protection. So goes the modern, tone-deaf Democrat Party, unwilling to protect babies born alive during an abortion but ready to expend political capital upon kittens.

Charlie Daniels Calls Out Leftist Hypocrisy over All-White Wardrobe: Believe All Women, Except Fairfax Accuser


Reported By Malachi Bailey | February 6, 2019 at 12:12pm

Country music legend Charlie Daniels slammed Democratic women for wearing white to Tuesday night’s State of the Union address to show support for women while their party is noticeably silent about a high-profile sexual assault accusation against Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax.

And he didn’t mince words.

“Democrat women are wearing white to the State of the Union address to signify support for ALL women (Except for the one who is accusing Lt Governor Fairfax of sexual harassment),” Daniels tweeted Tuesday night.

Many female Democratic members of Congress, including far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, wore white as a way to show solidarity on “women’s issues,” according to CNN. And while white was the color of the suffragette movement that won the right to vote for women in 1920, Democrats made it clear that the white on Tuesday applied went much further than gaining women the franchise a century ago.

“I’m looking forward to wearing suffragette white to #SOTU next week with all @HouseDemWomen!” Florida Rep. Lois Frankel wrote in a Twitter post last week. “We’ll honor all those who came before us and send a message of solidarity that we’re not going back on our hard-earned rights.”

But as Daniels pointed out, the bold statement of “solidarity” from the white attire contrasted sharply with the same women’s deafening silence regarding the allegation against Fairfax.

Virginia is currently in the midst of a political crisis as Democrats try to distance themselves from Gov. Ralph Northam, who found himself embroiled in two controversies last week. In a radio interview on Jan. 30, Northam hinted at supporting post-birth abortion, a position that disgusted and infuriated members of the pro-life movement.

But Democrats are more angry about a racist photo from Northam’s medical school yearbook from 1984. With Northam’s relationship with Democrats in tatters, the party seemed poised to throw its support behind Fairfax if Northam eventually steps down. Unfortunately for Democrats, the lieutenant governor is currently facing an accusation from a woman who claims he sexually assaulted her at the Democratic National Convention in 2004.

Fairfax, however, maintains the encounter was consensual. Virginia Democrats have been cautious at best about the accusation.

“The facts here are still being determined. Every individual deserves the opportunity to be heard, and we respect anyone who comes forward to share their story,” the state’s Democratic lawmakers said in a brief statement Tuesday.

“Governor Northam must end this chapter immediately, step down, and let Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax heal Virginia’s wounds and move us forward.”

We still haven’t heard the kind of widespread condemnation Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh received when he faced allegations that were undoubtedly less credible.

Quentin Kidd, director of the Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University, told The Washington Post that the silence from Democrats is “deafening.”

“They may be thinking, ‘We don’t want to throw our lieutenant governor under the bus while we’re also trying to throw our governor out of office,’” he said. “Republicans are probably eating all the popcorn they can find right now. It’s quite a show.”

To be clear, Fairfax deserves due process, but that’s not a principle that Democrats care about when Republicans are accused. Democrats are supposed to “believe all women,” but it’s not a good look when they selectively believe women based on politics.

Daniels had a point. For a party that supposedly supports women, Democrats are awfully silent about Fairfax’s troubling accusation.

Dem leaders witness push for new Red revolution


Authored by Chad Groening, Billy Davis (OneNewsNow.com) | Tuesday, January 8, 2019

Ocasio-Cortez on "60 Minutes"The newest faces of the Democratic Party suggest the party’s love affair with far-left politics is gaining momentum, angering their leaders, and turning off the public, says a public policy analyst.

The swearing-in of congressional lawmakers made national headlines last week, most notably since Rep. Nancy Pelosi was handed the gavel after Democrats made huge gains in November’s election and wrestled control of the House of Representatives from Republicans.

What do you suspect Dem leaders are saying to ambitious new lawmakers behind closed doors? (Choose up to two)
‘Baby steps, it takes baby steps’‘Cuba is our model, too’‘Stay on message please’‘Tell me again: what are your committee assignments?’‘Trump is the enemy’‘Yeah, we’re gonna impeach him’

But it was the fresh faces in Congress that made the most news, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old Democrat who is making history as the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. She is also an avowed socialist and in recent days touted her “Green New Deal” that includes a whopping 70-percent top tax rate on the wealthiest Americans to finance a move from fossil fuels to renewable energy within 10 years.

gasoline pumpsNot only does the “Green New Deal” plan to move the U.S. from gas and oil, writes Rich Lowry, quoting from draft legislation, it also promises to tackle gender inequality, deliver a “basic income,” and provide “universal health care.” 

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American elected to Congress, made headlines over the foul language she used — she dropped the raunchiest of swear words — when she addressed a raucous crowd of far-left activists. It was also not lost on the public that Tlaib also promised to impeach President Trump in that speech, a plan that excites the Far Left at the same time Pelosi and other leaders claim impeachment is not in their plans. Tlaib also made headlines for another reason: a wall map in her new congressional office was altered with a note denoting non-existent “Palestine” over the current country of Israel.

Hamilton

“The thing that is concerning to me,” observes Abe Hamilton of the American Family Association, “is we literally now have a major national political party that is openly become a socialist party. That should be concerning to all Americans because that is where we are.”

Writing at conservative website RedState, Joe Cunningham advises the political whispering in D.C. is that Pelosi and Schumer are “furious” that the freshman Democrats are “stealing the spotlight” then doing “dumb things” with the publicity they’re enjoying.

The leaders were particularly angry with Ocasio-Cortez for her “60 Minutes” interview, when she claimed she was “morally right” after being confronted over her “fuzzy math” about government spending, according to Cunningham.

Democratic Socialists of America“This is a larger problem for the Democrats,” Cunningham observes. “They were happy to sit back and laugh as Republicans fought amongst themselves during the Obama years, but now they find themselves in the middle of their own Tea Party moment – one which they can thank Bernie Sanders for.”

Hamilton tells OneNewsNow the far-left agenda on display in the nation’s capital does not play well with mainstream America.

CNN praises NY Dem socialist“The 2016 election revealed that the Democrat Party had become a coastal and regional party — it was no longer a national party,” he observes. “And I think that rings true still today, when you have these extreme elements who’ve gained control and momentum within the Democrat Party. They will soon learn that the American people are not on board with the radical socialist agenda.”

In his concluding words in the RedState commentary, Cunningham predicts that powerful Democratic leaders are now fighting with ambitous progressives for the future direction of the party.

Election Judge Sees Fraud 7 Ft Away. Reports It. Dems Demand She Be Removed: Report


Reported By Kara Pendleton | November 12, 2018 at 3:38am

While “all eyes” are on Florida amidst accusations of potential election fraud, there may have been something fishy going on in St. Clair County, Illinois. According to The Gateway Pundit, this would not be the first time something like this has happened, either.

Peggy A. Hubbard posted a multi-tweet thread explaining what happened in the 2018 midterm elections, noting that she was an election judge. She began describing some of what she witnessed as she watched the polling station.

But that wasn’t all she saw.

Not only is it shocking that anyone would allow this, but it’s also shocking that someone would get in such a state before then going to vote.

Hubbard noted that she also caught a city council member just feet away doing no good. But it was Hubbard taking flack.

She also elaborated further on how she put a stop to what she witnessed. It appears that these actions may have led to the complaints filed against her and her removal as an election judge being sought.

Hubbard has also posted about other problems with the election in her state. These are from 2016.

Hubbard is no stranger to standing up for what she believes in or in being attacked for it. In 2015, she “compared the black community’s reaction to the shooting of Mansur Ball-Bey in North St. Louis outside a crack house with the shooting death of 9 year-old Jamyla Bolden in Ferguson,” according to The Gateway Pundit.

Her video rant went viral. And the typical name-calling ensued, including her being referred to as an “Uncle Tom.”

Service isn’t new to Hubbard, either. She is a veteran who served aboard the USS SAMUEL GOMPERS AD-37.

Hubbard’s Twitter feed is filled with hard-hitting posts about the left and Democrat shenanigans. She has no problem speaking out against the Democrat Plantation” and “Black Lives Matter,” contrary to what blacks in America are expected to do.

Dems Hate GA Voter Law Because They Don’t Think Minorities Can Write Own Names: Hunter

The Democratic party, and the far left in general, like to paint themselves as the party of tolerance and enlightenment. Obviously, we all know that’s not the case. But every once in a while, the Democratic Party reminds us of just how hypocritical they truly are. The best part is, they don’t even realize they’re doing it.

Case in point, just look at the hysteria surrounding Georgia’s “exact match” law.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the “exact match” law simply states that to be acceptable, a voter’s registration application must exactly match a driver’s license, state ID card or Social Security records.

That hardly seems controversial. After all, voting is such an important American right which helps shape our country, it’d make sense to make sure that all information is accurate and legitimate.

Democrats and the left don’t see it that way. They essentially find that law racist, apparently.

“Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp has been a driving force behind multiple voter suppression efforts throughout the years in Georgia,” said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law said in a statement through Common Dreams.

It didn’t take long for Clarke to throw in a veiled accusation of racism.

“If there is one person in Georgia who knows that the ‘Exact Match’ scheme has a discriminatory impact on minority voters, it’s Brian Kemp because we successfully sued him over a mirror policy in 2016,” Clarke said.

Kemp, who is running for Georgia governor in the upcoming midterms in November, has frequently heard similar complaints from his Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams.

Abrams recently called Kemp “a remarkable architect of voter suppression” according to the The Associated Press.

Apparently, it’s now racist to try and safeguard our Constitutional Republic from voter fraud.

Clarke and Abrams seem to be glossing over the little fact that voters who have been flagged by the “exact match” law can still vote, as the Journal-Constitution notes. Oftentimes, the hold-ups when it comes to “exact match” issues stems from something simple like a missing hyphen, discrepancies between married and maiden names or even clerical government errors.

Even while those issues are pending, flagged voters can vote. Assuming a voter is not actively trying to commit voter fraud, the “exact match” law is a minor inconvenience at worst.

Not only are Democrats being intentionally misleading about the severity of the impact of “exact match,” think about the message they’re sending.

Derek Hunter, an author and contributor to The Daily Caller, summed it up best.

“Georgia Democrats are complaining that the state’s ‘exact match’ law, meaning people have to write their own name accurately on registration forms, is racist,” Hunter wrote on Twitter. “In other words, liberals don’t think minorities can write their own names. That’s pretty racist.”

That scathing take couldn’t be more true. Democrats are no strangers to racial double-standards, but these particular claims of racism go beyond that. At best, it shows a distinct misunderstanding of law, which is a damning sign for a political party. At worst, it shows a distinct willingness to lie and manipulate racial minorities no matter the cost, which should be even more damning.

Based on the Democrats’ track record, I’m inclined to believe the latter.

Graham laments ‘what’s happened to Democratic Party’


Reported by Michael F. Haverluck (OneNewsNow.com) | Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Franklin Graham preachingRev. Franklin Graham is in a quandary as to what has become of the Democratic Party – especially with its frequently exposed anti-God and anti-America agenda.

The president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) recently took to social media to air his concern about Democrats forcing a county party leader to resign a while back over posting a statement that most Americans would — and should – feel proud to make:

“I stand for the flag, I kneel at the cross,” former United States Marine and Gulf War veteran Mark Salvas declared – to the chagrin of his fellow Democratic leaders, according to WND.

Dems evolving so far left, they can’t be right?

The son of the late iconic evangelist Billy Graham took to social media to back Salvas and shame Democrats for punishing their own party member for making such an honorable declaration.

“I’m not ashamed of my patriotism – not one bit,” Graham expressed on Facebook to his millions of followers, as reported by WND. “I fought for this country. I think I have a right to have a voice and be patriotic.”

The CEO of the Christian humanitarian aid organization, Samaritan’s Purse, went on to reaffirm his support of Salvas and question the motivation taking over the blue party – one that many see as continuing to move farther and farther to the left.

“He’s right,” Graham continued. “What has happened to the Democratic Party?”

Equating loyalty to God and America to ‘racism’

Democratic leaders were noticeably upset and distraught when Salvas publicly proclaimed his personal faith and patriotism as the new chairman of Allegheny County Democratic Party – so furious that they booted him from his position.

“We have a zero tolerance for sexual harassment or racism of any kind,” Democratic Committee Chairwoman Nancy Mills insisted, according to Fox News’ The Todd Starnes Show. “I think Chairwoman [Eileen] Kelly made the right decision once she was aware of the issues.”

While sitting down with the Fox News show’s host, Todd Starnes, Salvas shared how angered Democratic Party leaders were about his wife showing her support in a Facebook post for a police officer who was accused of killing an African American with racist intent. Even though her support was clearly expressed to denote her confidence in the law enforcement officer – because she had witnessed his virtuous character all his life – Democrats interpreted her backing as nothing more than a white supremacist rant.

“Salvas said they had known the police officer and his family since the officer was a toddler,” Starnes explained to his audience.

Rep. Ed Gainey (D-Pa.) also jumped on the Democrats’ race-card bandwagon, going as far as to accuse Salvas of insulting African-American voters … as losing votes – as opposed to genuine concern over racism – appeared to be the key issue at hand.

“To put that up on Facebook was, to me, insensitive – also to African Americans, who, as you know, have backed the Democratic Party for quite a long time, and everybody knows that it was insensitive,” Gainey argued, according to The Todd Starnes Show. “A Democratic leader has to be sensitive.”

Same Dems during the Obama years …

Several years ago – at the 2012 Democratic National Convention before former President Barack Obama’s second term – a similar reception to what Salvas received for saying he knelt at the cross and bowed to the flag was received when Democrats booed after it was announced that God was being reintroduced to their party’s platform.

“Thousands of bloggers are reporting this morning that delegates at the Democratic convention in Charlotte booed when God was reintroduced into their party’s platform,” CatholicCulture.org reported in September 2012. “In drafting the original platform, Democratic leaders had removed references to God – and to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. They didn’t merely forget to mention God – in updating previous party platforms, they made a conscious decision to remove Him.”


Even though most Democrats from coast to coast would most likely not cheer their party devising a godless platform, elected leaders apparently thought it was a good idea.

“When that decision was brought to the attention of ordinary American voters – outside the orbit of the Democratic Party apparatchiks – it was unpopular … it didn’t play in Peoria,” CatholicCulture.org’s Phil Lawler explained. “Belatedly, the Democratic leaders realized that they should put God back in the picture, so an amendment to the platform was placed on the convention’s agenda.”

Showing the godless heart and soul of the Democratic Party, the amendment to put God back in the party’s platform was received with much controversy from within the rank and file at the DNC Convention.

“Quite a few delegates opposed the mention of God – some, no doubt, were primarily concerned about the mention of Jerusalem,” Lawler recounted. “Party leaders might have simplified matters by introducing two separate amendments – one to restore a mention of God, the other to name Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – but that tactic would not have suited the purposes of the party strategists. They didn’t want an open debate on God or on Jerusalem during the convention – they didn’t want to give American voters the opportunity to see just how radical the Democratic Party has become … they wanted the amendment approved quickly.”

Regardless of the problematic and confusing amendment process that took place during the convention, it was evident that a large proportion – most likely the majority – of the nation’s most vocal and influential Democrats were more than hostile to the idea of letting God back into their platform at the time.

In fact, it was reported that most Democrats at the 2012 DNC Convention actually voted to keep God out, as one conservative media outlet insisted that the voice vote from the crowd definitely went against welcoming God back in to the Democratic platform.

At the time, then-Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was put between a rock and a hard place and evidently tried to save face for his party – so it would not resemble a pack of atheists of anti-Semitists.

“Villaraigosa was lying, in any case – there is no way that the voice vote had passed,” Breitbart News explained in September 2012. “Opponents stood up and protested, waving and shouting – the fix was in. The Democratic leadership had to ram a mention of God and a mention of Jerusalem through – violating their own rules – to avoid the fallout within their own ranks.”

Not where your vote is … it’s where your heart is

Even though Graham has been vocal about his support for many of President Donald Trump’s conservative Christian policies regarding religious freedom and biblical principles concerning social issues, he made it quite clear earlier this summer in August that what truly matters is not whether one stands with Republicans or Democrats – but whether one stands with God.

“Graham – who described himself as ‘not a politician’ and involved with neither political parties – said healing the country’s political divide is a problem beyond mere mortals,” The Mail Tribune noted at the time.

He addressed the tension in America between those on the political right and left – insisting that neither party has the answers – only God.

“Only God can fix it,” Graham added. “The Republican Party’s not going to fix the problems of this country, or the state … neither are the Democrats – they’re not going to do it.”
