NY Abortion Free For All a “Cash Cow”

Live Action president and founder Lila Rose is blasting New York’s disgusting new full-term abortion “rights” as not only morally beyond the pale and medically disgusting but a “cash cow” for Planned Parenthood and others willing to commit abortions. In a Breitbart interview, Rose explained, “A late-term abortion can cost up to $15,000. We’re talking about potentially tens of thousands, or at least thousands, of dollars for elective late-term abortions. So this is a cash cow for willing abortionists.” Rose went on to blast the law as not being about safety or freedom but aimed rather at propping up the abortion industry in New York to keep the donations to Democrats coming in strong. The DNC is now unabashedly the party of blood money.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Lila Rose, president and founder of pro-life organization Live Action, said on Wednesday that New York’s newest abortion law is a “cash cow” for the “abortion industry,” offering her remarks in an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Rose explained, “A late-term abortion can cost up to $15,000. We’re talking about potentially tens of thousands, or at least thousands, of dollars for elective late-term abortions. So this is a cash cow for willing abortionists.”

Rose added, “The other thing this law does is it allows nurses and even midwives to commit abortion, so it expands who can commit abortion beyond doctors. Now anybody in New York, practically, can commit abortions.”

Rose noted that Planned Parenthood’s backing of Democrat politicians is a financial boon for its operations as America’s largest abortion provider.

Warren Forgets Three Branches of Government

Leftist presidential hopeful Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has apparently forgotten the basics of the Constitution. Just how bad? That there are three branches of government. During an interview with CNN’S Anderson Cooper, the 1/1024 Native American responded to a question about the White House exerting power over Congress. “Well, let’s talk about the balance of power,” Warren mused. “There are two coequal branches of government, the president of the United States and the Congress.” Um, about that third branch that liberals are so happy to use as a bludgeon for conservatives, yep, they might have something to say about the Constitution too. Remember Kavanaugh?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) appeared to not know how many branches of government exist during a Tuesday interview on CNN.

Warren joined CNN’s Anderson Cooper on “Anderson Cooper 360” to discuss a variety of issues, including the on-going government shutdown.

“Do you ever think, look, the realistic end game is that Republicans get two thirds of what they want and the Democrats have to settle for the shorter straw?” Cooper asked. “Is that how the balance of power really works?”

“Well, let’s talk about the balance of power,” Warren responded. “There are two coequal branches of government, the president of the United States and the Congress.”

There are three branches of the U.S. government: The legislative branch, which makes laws; the executive branch, which enforces laws; and the judicial branch, which interprets laws.

Pelosi Charged USAF 200K for Family Vacation

Perhaps the best outcome of President Trump’s shutdown was Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s foreign trip slush fund. Nancy’s dirty travel expenses have just come to light, including nearly $200,000 for just one trip, which was spent flying her family from Italy to Ukraine in 2015. The numbers come from the federal government after Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request. The trip, which Pelosi justified as “intended to underscore the U.S. commitment to security in the region,” included $190 five-course dinners as well as private viewings of the Sistine Chapel, the Duomo, and a viewing of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. So much for Pelosi and her Democrat pals “fighting for the working people.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

A series of documents obtained by Judicial Watch show precisely how much money Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has spent on previous jaunts abroad, similar to the one she was prevented from going on by a White House order last week — and it isn’t pretty.

The Daily Caller reports that Pelosi’s CoDel trip, that was canceled at the last minute by President Donald Trump in response to the the Speaker of the House accusing the White House of abusing scarce resources by holding the State of the Union address in the midst of a government shutdown, was hardly her first trip abroad on the American dime.

A Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act request seeking information about Pelosi’s previous CoDel trips turned up a jaunt Pelosi took in 2015 to Italy and the Ukraine aboard Air Force planes. The total cost of the trip: $184,587.81.

AOC Channels Al Gore, Predicts End of World in 12 Years

Progressive socialist and climate alarmist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is trying to shut down “how do you pay for it” naysayers wIth her “Green New Deal” that, if passed, will sabotage America’s energy independence. During an #MLKNOW event interview, she channeled Al Gore hysteria, claiming the world will end in 12 years unless she and her ilk get a blank check. “I think that the part of it that is generational is that millennials and Gen-Z and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is ‘how are we going to pay for it?'” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And, like, this is the war-this is our World War II.” Please join us in a collective facepalm. Thanks very much. Now back to the real world.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Devout socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says that the world will stop spinning in a dozen years if “climate change” is left unchecked. Ocasio-Cortez is pushing a new plan in Congress she calls her “Green New Deal” to confront climate matters.

“I think that the part of it that is generational is that millennials and Gen-Z and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, ‘the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is–your biggest issue is ‘how are we going to pay for it?’” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And, like, this is the war–this is our World War II.”

NY Adds Gender “X” Option to State ID Cards

New York residents 10 years old and up can now opt out of basic binary anatomy categories on the state’s free ID cards by selecting an “X” option instead of outmoded “male” or “female” options. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio celebrated the milestone as one of justice, saying that “in the fairest big city in America, we have a mandate to further our commitment to justice and access for all transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming New Yorkers.” The 1.25 million IDNYC holders don’t even have to stick with what they pick but can change his, her, or its gender selection at whim and for free with taxpayers footing the bill. In typical Leftist fashion, taxpayers will get stuck with the bill for liberal policy laboratory experiments.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

New York City’s free identification card, marking its launch four years ago, has added a third gender for users to select.

IDNYC is available for city residents ages 10 years and up, and was designed so that populations who might not otherwise possess a valid ID can have official photo identification, such as the homeless, undocumented immigrants, the elderly, and those who have served time behind bars.

With the ID, users can get access to city buildings and services, get discounts, get a library card, and have something to show a cop if asked for identification by police. It can’t be used to buy booze, drive, or prove the right to work in the United States.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today that “in the fairest big city in America, we have a mandate to further our commitment to justice and access for all transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming New Yorkers,” so the IDNYC will reflect that.

AOC Short-Changes Campaign Staff

Progressive socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), the self-proclaimed champion of the working class and those in need, is in hot water after her campaign was fined for failing to provide workers’ compensation coverage to its staff. According to The New York Post: “[Ocasio-Cortez] did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” revealed the New York Workers’ Compensation Board. In typical liberal fashion, rules are for thee, not for me.

Here’s more from Hot Air…

Oh, the irony — at least on a small scale. The campaign for New York’s youngest House member and progressive darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got fined yesterday for failing to provide workers’ comp coverage to its staff for at least one month. The New York Post plays it straight in its report:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign was fined $1,500 by the state last year for failing to obtain workers’ compensation coverage, The Post has learned.

All employers are required under New York’s disability law to buy insurance to cover disability benefits for employees.

“The employer did not have the required workers’ compensation coverage from March 31, 2018, to April 30, 2018, and was issued a final penalty of $1,500, which was paid,” said Workers Compensation Board spokeswoman Melissa Stewart.

“This coverage is vital to ensuring workers are protected for on-the-job injuries.”

Dem: Trump Doesn’t Want “Folks of Color” in America

Democratic Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) just dragged her party to a new rhetorical low, alleging that President Trump’s “ultimate goal” is to make America “pure” or without “folks of color” in our country. Her statement, obviously a nod to Left wing Hitler-Trump hysteria, was made in response to MSNBC’s Chris Hayes when he asked, “Do you think that a bill can be made, or do you think this is fundamentally existential and cannot be made?” in reference to resolving the border security shutdown over funds for building the wall and maintaining the open borders status quo. Jayapal went on to predict that Trump’s firm stance to secure the border will “backfire on him.” We’ll see about that. So far, polls are squarely in favor of border security.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Speaking with Chris Hayes on MSNBC Thursday night, Democratic Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) made an incredible and outrageous charge, saying President Trump’s “ultimate goal” is to make America “pure” and not have “folks of color” in America.

Hayes prompted the outburst by asking, “Do you think that a bill can be made or do you think this is fundamentally existential and cannot be made?”

Jayapal answered:

It is fundamentally existential and if he continues to insist on a wall—you just said it so beautifully, Chris; this has never been about a wall. He actually could have gotten funding a couple of years ago, or a year ago, for a wall. It was part of a deal that was proposed, not all of us agreed with that deal but it was proposed to him and he turned it down because his ultimate goal is, as you said, to make America “pure” in the sense of not having immigrants, not having folks of color here, and shutting down every form of legal immigration.

CNN’S Acosta Proves Border Wall Works

CNN reporter Jim Acosta just inserted himself in the middle of the border security shutdown battle on Capitol Hill. In a live report, Acosta attempted to show how “safe” the U.S.-Mexico border is…while behind a border wall. He was swiftly called out by Mark Morgan, former chief of U.S. Border Patrol, for the unintentional irony of proving that President Donald Trump is right to demand border security. “I hope the American people aren’t lost on the irony that he’s standing behind a wall saying it’s peaceful. Because there’s a wall. Think about that, right? The irony there.” Morgan then challenged Acosta to report from the unfenced portion of the border at night…where real criminals are killing real Border Patrol agents every single year. Imagine that: bad guys don’t cross the border in daylight. Thanks for the tip there, Jim.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The former chief of U.S. Border Patrol hit at CNN reporter Jim Acosta for claiming earlier on Thursday that the Rio Grande Valley region of the U.S.-Mexico border was a “safe” place.

“I hope the American people aren’t lost on the irony that he’s standing behind a wall saying it’s peaceful. Because there’s a wall. Think about that, right? The irony there,” Mark Morgan, who led Border Patrol from mid-2016 into early 2017, told Fox News host Laura Ingraham late Thursday.

Acosta visited McAllen, Texas, Thursday as part of the White House press pool that accompanied Trump on the trip.

“The steel slats don’t run the entire length of the border in the McAllen area,” Acosta tweeted along with a photo of himself standing by the steel-bollard barrier. “We found one part where there is a chain link fence. Occasionally migrants come thru but residents say their community is quite safe.”

Abortionists Advertising to Children

The #ShoutYourAbortion movement, which proclaims as its mission eliminating the stigma of abortion, is now promoting its cause celebre to children. Efforts to market its brutal business to minors include a children’s book and videos promoting it. One video even compares abortion to “a crappy dentist appointment.” Other efforts include “meet and greet” sessions between children and someone who has had an abortion. In one such propaganda session, the abortion procedure is explained thus: “You go to the doctor and they put this little straw inside of your uterus and then they just suck the pregnancy out.” The worship of the ancient Canaanite god Moloch is alive and well in America.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

The #ShoutYourAbortion movement has a new target for its propaganda—children. In Huxleyan fashion, they have written a book for young people and are promoting it with a video in which one of the cofounders has an uncomfortable discussion with young kids about her abortion.

Amelia Bonow tweeted the video in which she compares her abortion to “a crappy dentist appointment.” She says the kids grilled her about it, but the “educational moment” was less a grilling by the kids and more a cringe-worthy attempt by Bonow to indoctrinate them.

Treating the interviews as if they were part of career day at school, Bonow presents the video as “Kids meet someone who’s had an abortion.” I remember meeting firemen or policemen back in school, but someone who had an abortion? In those days, such discussions were handled by my parents or school counselors.

Anti-Nazi Sign Deemed Not Inclusive Enough

The Left is continuing to eat its own, with relish. The latest installment fratricide via political correctness comes to us from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst which demanded a student take down a sign that read “F**k Nazis. You are no welcome here.” Staggeringly, it was not because of the foul language, but rather because it wasn’t exclusive enough that administration demand the sign be removed. “Though this sign is permitted under Freedom of Speech, I would also like to discuss the impact on the community that this sign has had,” wrote one of the university’s residence directors to the student. “There are some in the community that have expressed that the sign should be taken down as it has created mixed emotions in the community on how to proceed, issues of inclusion, and the ability to be active members of their community.” The “un-inclusive” sign was posted after a resident assistant’s “Happy Hanukkah” sign was defaced with a swastika. This gets our much-deserve 2018 Facepalm Award.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The University of Massachusetts-Amherst asked a student to take down a sign that said “Fuck Nazis. You are not welcome here” because it wasn’t inclusive.

The student, Nicole Parsons, was living in the dorms with her roommate when she became fed up with several hate crime incidents on campus, BuzzFeed reported. In September, the university ran an anti-hate campaign and had 19 hate crime incidents reported.

A resident assistant had a “Happy Hanukkah” sign on their door that was defaced with a swastika, which angered Parsons and inspired her to put up her sign.

To her surprise, she received an email from one of the university’s residence directors asking her to remove the sign.
