Kevin McCullough and Dov Hikind, a former Democratic New York State Assemblyman, discuss the recent anti-semitic attack in Upstate New York.Read More »
In the midst of their seemingly endless and unpredictable fight for the 2020 presidential nomination, does it make sense for Democrats to promote some of their least likable Congressional leaders as the new face of their party?
The result of the new impeachment investigation, assigned to six different House committees, is that the leaders of those committees—including Maxine Waters, Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff and Elijah Cummings—will dominate the debate and upstage the flailing presidential contenders.
As it happens, all six chairs are from New York, California, Maryland and Massachusetts, perfectly positioned to alienate key suburban voters in swing states that will decide the outcome of the election. The impeachment pursuit elevates some of the Democrats’ least appealing proponents to positions of pre-eminence, helping to ensure party losses in the upcoming battles for control of the House, the Senate and the White House.Read More »
The fetal heartbeat bills recently adopted in several states are strategic efforts intended to provoke the attention of the United States Supreme Court to confront the logic of the Roe v. Wade decision.
The passage of these bills has also provoked a very revealing public conversation. Notably, Christine Quinn—active in New York city politics over the years, said on CNN, “When a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.”
Whatever the inhabitant of the womb is, according to Christine Quinn, “it’s not a human being.”
Because, if it were, pro-abortion advocates would then have to recognize the personhood of that being and recognize his or her rights.
The only significant moral agent when it comes to those who are representing the pro-choice position is the woman. The baby simply doesn’t exist.
Christine Quinn’s horrifying comment has at least achieved one thing, moral clarity, and we should at least note that.Read More »
California has decided sodas are the new tobacco, with five bills introduced in the legislature to limit sales. If they pass, you won’t be able to buy sodas larger than 16 ounces, you won’t find them in check-out lines, and there will be extra fees.
New York introduced a bill banning large sodas and it was blocked by a judge. While it was in effect the data showed people actually bought more sodas. And there are very different interpretations of the effects of a soda tax.
But the real issue is individual freedom. Isn’t drinking a soda your decision, not the government’s? If they are dangerous to health, isn’t education the answer, not regulation?
The nanny state keeps regulating us more and more at the cost of individual freedom. What’s next: banning meat and dairy products in school lunches? Oops, that bill has been introduced in California also.Read More »
The sexualization of children will be televised.
It’s on “Good Morning America” where an 11-year-old drag queen dances provocatively to the approval of the hosts and studio audience alike.
It’s on Hulu in the form in the series “Pen15” with behavior I can’t describe here.
Gore Vidal would be a prude by the standards of today’s culture.
In 2015, an admitted pedophile argued in Salon.com that, “Society preventing children from engaging in sex play and romance is akin to preventing them from learning to swim.”
Today, New York state legislators respond to sex trafficking by introducing legislation to legalize prostitution.
The social justice response to sex abuse by Catholic clergy is to remove the celibacy vow and prohibitions on homosexuality for priests.
The response to the latest sexual abuse charges against R. Kelly is for his attorney to assert an implicit consent defense—for preying on 14-year-old kids.
The sexual revolution is on the cusp of conquering its final frontier.Read More »
The horrors of abortion appear daily as states across the country pledge their support for late-term abortion laws. And, with the recent change in New York’s law legalizing abortion right up to the point of birth, we see virtually immediate real-world impact.
The ink was barely dry on New York’s “Reproductive Health Act” when the New York Times reported that, after Governor Cuomo’s signing of the bill, “anti-abortion campaigners predicted it would eliminate criminal penalties for violence that ends women’s pregnancies. The debate resurfaced over the weekend after the Queens district attorney, Richard A. Brown, cited the new law … as the reason for dropping an abortion charge against a man who the police say fatally stabbed his former girlfriend when she was 14 weeks pregnant.”
The speed of the moral revolution is dizzying: Just days after the passage of this abortion law, the criminal justice system dropped its case to protect the life of the unborn.Read More »
The horrible reality of late-term abortion points to the horrible reality of abortion, period. The abortion-related legislation in the news in recent weeks reveals a progression in pro-abortion thinking: Late-term abortion is becoming a basic principle of the pro-abortion movement.
From the State of New York, to Rhode Island, Virginia and now Illinois, we are seeing legislation put forward that reveals the truth about abortion—the mask taken off, as it were.
We’re seeing the determination that abortion be available to any woman at any time for any reason or for no reason—even to the point that the advocates of abortion, who had basically tried to indicate that they understood third-trimester abortions to be different, now they’re saying they’re not different at all.
And we also have to acknowledge this follows their own deadly logic.
Either life is sacred and worth protecting … or it’s not.Read More »
