Matt Smith #fundie politico.com

I fully support a Democrat who gets pregnant killing its baby. (Democrats won’t know if it’s a man or woman, because those scientific details are confusing to them). And regardless of the non-scientific moniker of race. In short, a Democrat baby, once born, is subject to fascist indoctrination, gender confusion, hatred, racism - in short, Democrats create monsters. What we should be focused on is not their desire to kill their own children, but keeping them away from everyone else’s. No Democrat should be allowed in education, law enforcement, government services, childcare, law enforcement, or a position of public trust. We see Democrat pedophiles and gays and transsexuals infiltrating the military, schools, even the Catholic Church - and the results are nauseating and criminal.

Re: I Am an Abortion Rights Activist. I Hope the Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade.

(Dale Pape)
Clearly it's a hot topic amoung politico's leftist readers looking at the comment section not a single legit comment.

Alex I would be careful what you wish for, you might just find in the 21st century the burality of killing babies in the womb might be seen as a bit stonage.

I can only imagin how you would react to some poor litter of kittens being dump on the streets of Detroit .. Oh the horror no doubt but killing a baby human in the womb well thats just fine with your ilk.

Do you think the State can compel you to give blood transfusions to a stranger, if it is the only way to keep that stranger alive?

Of course you don't. But you think it's OK for the State to compel a woman to do so.

The root of the anti-abortion movement is not about protecting babies (babies whom the Right is happy to throw into cages). The root is about denying women full and equal rights. Full stop. If you really cared about babies, you'd support a) free birth control, b) free pre-natal care, c) free child care and welfare for mothers. But you don't support any of those things, do you.

Wow, that is some twisted logic.

(Stan Olson)
What about the Father's rights? Of course in too many cases the Mother doesn't know who the Father is.

(Tom Genin)
The entire flaw in your logic of "choice" is that the pregnant woman didn't already excercise a number of choices to get to that point, whereas the theoretical blood donor in your scenario had no choice. Moreover, while I'm pro-life, I'm not for elimintinating the right to abortion, but the 20 week cap is reasonable.

Simply put, we as a whole are not evolved enough to value life if we'd ever consider abortion as an option for our personal benefit. That's not a knock on anyone who's made that difficult choice, it's pointing out that unless society as a whole is on the same page with that kind of care and support, you can't condemn the least capable to carry the burden of the aspirations of others.

The simplest test of our own perception is if you see a pregnant teen. The reality is that we don't separate the wonder and value of the creation of life from the act. If you look at that teen and think "how wonderful, another child" without thinking of all of the derogatory things that people may say at the same time, you're in the minority of humanity. That teen's decision on whether to bring the child to term is therefore not just a reflection of her own desires, but a reflection of society as a whole.

We can't legislate that kind of societal change to care for life irrespective of circumstance. Illegal abortions would certainly then happen, and that's not serving anyone or society. Far better to limit it to a reasonable period and aspire that we're all better about providing care for life in the future.

Burt Minor #fundie politico.com

CHICAGO — A Republican candidate for the Illinois Legislature is under fire from his own party amid allegations that he asked an African-American candidate for state attorney general whether she was a “lesbo” and used a racial slur during a conversation with her.

Now, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner and the Republican floor leader of the Illinois House, Peter Breen, are calling for the candidate, Burt Minor, to drop out of a race for state representative.

“He’s not fit to be a Republican nominee for office, especially not the General Assembly,” Breen told POLITICO. “His conduct was outrageous.”

At issue is a conversation that took place last fall between Minor and Republican attorney general candidate Erika Harold. Harold, the party-backed candidate for the GOP, who is also a Harvard Law graduate and former Miss America, was talking to Minor in his capacity as a Winfield Township chairman.

“[Minor] asked Ms. Harold personal questions about her marital status, and even her sexual orientation, going so far as to inquire whether she was a ‘lesbo,’” Breen wrote in a letter to other Republicans this morning. “The chairman also used the full ‘n-word’ repeatedly in front of Ms. Harold and her assistant, asking whether she found its usage offensive.”

Breen told POLITICO that in a meeting, Minor admitted to using the slur and had “tried to explain it away, saying that she wanted him to ask the question so she could get it on the record, which is obviously absurd.”

There have been historical examples of polygamy but that doesn't make it a true, committed, intimate relationship between a man and a women. The marriage ideal is a total commitment to the opposite sex spouse. That is impossible with...... say six spouses.
My point is that once you open hell's gate by condoning homosexual marriage how can you then limit any other bizarre preferred relationship. No I haven't lost, it is you that has lost by condoning unnatural, unhealthy, and yes sinful sex acts.
Honestly this topic is becoming toxic and boring. I will never be convinced a subject as 'dark' as homosexual sex is 'light'. I have had literally scores of replies, mostly negative, but far far more 'thumbs' up in number, indicating there are vast numbers that hold exactly the same position as I yet are not as vocal, as politically terroristic as the homosexual community.

Trump and House GOP #fundie politico.com

House Republicans were planning to pass a spending bill stacked with his campaign promises, including money to build his border wall with Mexico.

But an internal House Republican fight over transgender troops was threatening to blow up the bill. And House GOP insiders feared they might not have the votes to pass the legislation because defense hawks wanted a ban on Pentagon-funded sex reassignment operations — something GOP leaders wouldn’t give them.

They turned to Trump, who didn’t hesitate. In the flash of a tweet, he announced that transgender troops would be banned altogether.

Black Lives Matter #racist politico.com

I knew the protest was going to spiral into something bigger when I saw a man in tears push a police officer. I had never seen anyone lay a hand on a cop, even amicably. But these people gathered now in the street were utterly out of patience. I wasn’t sure whether I would be caught in the crossfire. Then a community activist I had earlier asked to interview spotted me, and called me over.

“I can see from your face that you don’t think you’re safe,” he told me. He was black; I’m Chinese-American. “You are. You’re a minority, too.”

It was just the reassurance I was looking for. It would also turn out to be wrong.

[...]

Shortly after I arrived, I saw the beginnings of a shoving match between a line of policemen in riot gear and the distraught residents of the neighborhood. I was the only non-black person there at the time—the other news crews had left—and my presence was soon questioned: Some pointed me out as an interloper; others, like the reassuring activist, told me I would be fine. I brushed off the more hostile comments as much as I could: They were angry, and anger doesn’t always hit its intended target.

As the confrontation went on, the crowd became more and more violent. What started as shoving and rock throwing escalated into smashing cars and setting businesses aflame. By nightfall, I was crouching behind a Chevy Suburban to avoid bullets. Another intern, a white man who had arrived later on to take photos, huddled beside me. After the gunfire ceased, he emerged from behind the car to take more pictures while I stayed behind.

“Get your white ass out of here!” he soon heard. “You better not let me fucking catch you!”

After trying unsuccessfully to defuse the situation, my colleague was flying down the street with a group of men chasing him. Wanting to help, but not knowing how, I decided to run after them. In order to run faster, my colleague dropped the two bulky cameras hanging around his neck. When I tried to retrieve them, and yelled at him to get out of the area, some in the group of rioters started chasing after me too. As a former back-of-the-pack runner in middle school gym class, I wasn’t surprised when they caught me. When they threw me to the ground, I reflexively curled up into a ball. Blows landed on my back, head and torso.

“Stop! He’s not white! He’s Asian!”

I wasn’t sure who said it, or how they knew my race, but within seconds, the punches stopped. Someone grabbed me by the arm and lifted me up. As my vision came back into focus, I saw a group of concerned black faces and heard someone repeating, “Don’t fuck with Chinese dudes.” My attackers had run off. Those who had intervened escorted me to safety.

The Journal Sentinel pulled its reporters off the scene that night once it got violent; thankfully, I walked away from the incident with only scrapes and bruises, and none of my colleagues were injured. Still, I was rattled.

The voice that stuck in my head over the next few days, as I talked to my relatives and friends about it, belonged to a woman who’d come up to me in the afternoon scrum: “You’re Asian, right?” she said to me. “Why are you even here?"

Marco Rubio #fundie politico.com

Rubio: No abortions for Zika-infected women

Sen. Marco Rubio said Saturday that he doesn’t believe a pregnant woman infected with the Zika virus should have the right to an abortion — even if she had reason to believe the child would be born with severe microcephaly.

"I understand a lot of people disagree with my view – but I believe that all human life is worthy of protection of our laws. And when you present it in the context of Zika or any prenatal condition, it’s a difficult question and a hard one," Rubio told POLITICO.

"But if I’m going to err, I’m going to err on the side of life."

Abortion and Zika became politically intertwined in June when Congress failed to pass a Zika-relief bill, in part due to a dispute over Planned Parenthood. Zika has started to spread quickly through Florida, which now has 422 cases -- more than any other state in the nation -- and it has alarmed families and health experts because the virus has been linked to severe microcephaly in infants born to some infected pregnant women.

“We’ve never before had a mosquito-borne disease that can cause a birth defect,” the Centers for Disease Control’s director, Tom Friedan, said Thursday in Doral after touring Wynwood. “That’s why we take it so seriously. The key is to protect pregnant women.”

Without prompting, Rubio acknowledged the challenges of the birth defects that result from Zika.

"Obviously, microcephaly is a terrible prenatal condition that kids are born with. And when they are, it’s a lifetime of difficulties," he said. "So I get it. I’m not pretending to you that that’s an easy question you asked me. But I’m prolife. And I’m strongly prolife. I believe all human life should be protected by our law, irrespective of the circumstances or condition of that life."

Rubio has taken a leadership role in trying to prevent the spread of Zika. He became the first Republican to co-sponsor President Obama’s $1.9 billion Zika-fighting legislation, which was watered down by House Republicans after it passed the Senate. The legislation ultimately failed. Rubio points out that he voted for every Zika bill he could.

The campaign of one of his Democratic Senate opponents, U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, pointed to that vote and said in a press release Saturday that “Rubio exploited the Zika crisis to attack women’s health funding and Planned Parenthood.”

A staunch pro-life conservative, Rubio’s position on abortion has been consistent in the Florida Legislature, U.S. Senate and the campaign trail. A year ago, for instance, Rubio said on the presidential debate stage that he was opposed to abortion in cases of rape or incest. Murphy’s campaign called that position “extreme and offensive.”

Rubio took issue with the Democrats’ raising Planned Parenthood because, he said, “the words Planned Parenthood don’t appear anywhere in the law.”

Rubio said the bill limited federal Zika money to “community health centers and hospitals, basically Medicare providers… with limited funds, you wanted to ensure those funds were going to facilities in every community in the state. In the end, I voted for laws that don’t have that condition there, either. I just want the money to start flowing.”

Rubio faulted Democrats for not passing the scaled-back legislation.

“The Planned Parenthood angle is something they basically made up to have a political reason not to pass Zika so they can come back in August and campaign on it,“ he said. “That’s what I mean by political volleyball. Both sides have played that game. I would have preferred the House just passed a clean funding bill and I’ll vote for that if it comes out.”

Furthermore, under the 8 year Obama Clinton/Kerry administration, some might call it "regime", we've seen tensions & wars rage from the Arctic, Ukraine, Syria (in fact the entire Middle East & parts of North Africa) South China Seas, North Korea, Russia & China.

Trump is the geopolitical balance America needs between Sanders who would turn the US into Venezuela and Clinton who would trigger all-out nuclear conflict with either Russia, China, North Korea. Trump wants to do "multipolar world order" business with Russia, China, India et al not trigger nuclear war. Trump wants to bring troops home, lowering the risks of conflict. This is poor liberally bias analysis typical of Ian Bremmer, a beta male soon deemed to be irreleveant.

The United States will have "absolutely no choice" but to close down some mosques where "some bad things are happening," Donald Trump said in a recent interview, explaining his rationale for doing so.

"Nobody wants to say this and nobody wants to shut down religious institutions or anything, but you know, you understand it. A lot of people understand it. We’re going to have no choice," the Republican presidential said in an interview from Trump Tower on Fox News' "Hannity" on Tuesday night.

Those remarks go further than Trump did on Monday, when he said he would "strongly consider" closing mosques as part of a response to last Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris that killed more than 130 and injured hundreds more.

Asked to explain his shifting position by Sean Hannity, Trump remarked that things are "happening a lot faster than anybody understands."

"There’s absolutely no choice. Some really bad things are happening and they're happening fast," he said, taking a dig at President Barack Obama's response to the attacks. "Certainly a lot faster than our president understands because he doesn't understand anything. He doesn't get it. Refuses to even call it by its correct name," which Trump termed "radical Islam."

Bobby Jindal #fundie politico.com

Only two hours after Louisiana’s state legislature squashed a law that would have allowed businesses to discriminate against same-sex couples, Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal issued an executive order to accomplish its intent.

“In Louisiana, the state should not be able to take adverse action against a person for their belief in traditional marriage,” Jindal said.
Story Continued Below

HB 707, which would have blocked the government from penalizing companies because of the owner’s stance on same-sex marriage, was defeated in the state house’s Civil Law and Procedure over fears that it legalized discrimination against LGBT people.

“We don’t support discrimination in Louisiana and we do support religious liberty. These two values can be upheld at the same time,” the governor said.

Jindal said he was “disappointed by the committee’s action.”

His executive order came the day after the Louisiana Republican announced he is forming an exploratory committee for a potential White House bid in 2016. Jindal has stated that he will make and announce his final decision after the state’s legislative session culminates June 11.

Jindal is a strong proponent of a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage across the country. When Indiana and Arkansas drew fire for bills that critics said would legalize discrimination against LGBT citizens, the Louisiana governor was quick to defend the legislation and criticize the states’ governors for advocating legislative compromise.

The state’s Democratic Party Executive Director Stephen Handwerk responded by calling Jindal’s decision a “stunt,” that showed disregard for Louisiana’s tourism industry. (As controversy in Indiana and Arkansas brewed, many pro-LGBT businesses and groups suggested boycotting travel to the states.)

“Louisiana taxpayers and businesses are once again being forced to foot the bill for Jindal’s vanity,” said Handwerk. “It’s foolishness our families cannot afford.”

Jindal’s decision was first reported by the New Orleans Times Picayune.

It is time for Eric Holder to go!

Rep. Louie Gohmert says he doesn’t see the value of sex education, noting that “mankind has existed” just fine without for a long time.

On Monday, the Texas Republican was discussing indoctrination through education on a conservative radio show “Wallbuilders Live,” and decrying what he said was a liberal agenda to push homosexuality and sexuality on children too young.

“Actually, mankind has existed for a pretty long time without anyone ever having to give a sex ed lesson to anybody. And now we feel like, oh gosh people are too stupid unless we force them to sit and listen to instructions. It is just incredible,” Gohmert said. “For heaven’s sake, let the kids be innocent.”

The whole attitude reminds Gohmert of the Soviet Union, he said, and he believes it’s a “natural law” that parents should have a say in their children’s education.

“That is the very thing that some of these liberals want to take away, and it reminds me so much of the summer that I was an exchange student in the Soviet Union back in the ’70s, and I was shocked when they were saying, ‘No the children don’t belong to the parents, they belong to the state,’” Gohmert said. “And I thought, well, thank God that we don’t have that in our country, and now I’ve seen this coming with the lady from MSNBC saying, ‘Hey children belong to the state not the children,’ and it just sent chills because it took me back to the ’70s when that’s what the Soviet Union used to say.”

In a barn-burning speech to social conservatives here, Michele Bachmann called Monday for abolishing the entire tax code and the Department of Education, labeled Planned Parenthood the "LensCrafters of big abortion" and slammed same-sex marriage advocates for going against what she called 5,000 years of human history.

Comfortably quoting from scripture, the Minnesota congresswoman said it was her faith that drove her to push for a ballot measure to criminalize same-sex marriage in the state — something she said might be possible this year because both state legislative houses are held by Republicans.

"In 5,000 years of recorded human history... neither in the east or in the west... has any society ever defined marriage as anything other than between men and women," Bachmann said during the latest installment of the Iowa Family Leader's presidential lecture series. "Not one in 5000 years of recorded human history. That's an astounding fact and it isn't until the last 12 years or so that we have seen for the first time in recorded human history marriage defined as anything other than between men and between women."

Bachmann delivered a scathing critique against the Department of Education, "along with a few other agencies, by the way, that I think we can live without." Those include the Department of Energy and the Department of Commerce. She said Planned Parenthood should lose its tax-exempt status — it's a nonprofit — and that Congress should use its power to limit the subjects that district courts can rule on.

That's because judges are "black-robed masters," she said, echoing a line she used during another recent trip to Iowa to lambaste the state Supreme Court justices whose ruling effectively legalized same-sex marriage in the state.

"That's what you had here in Iowa: black-robed masters," Bachmann said. "They are not our masters. They are not our morality. They are not put there to make the decisions."

Rick Santorum #fundie politico.com

Rick Santorum launched into a scathing attack on the left, charging during an appearance in South Carolina that the history of the Crusades has been corrupted by “the American left who hates Christendom.”

“The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical,” Santorum said in Spartanburg on Tuesday. “And that is what the perception is by the American left who hates Christendom.”

He added, “They hate Western civilization at the core. That's the problem.”

After asserting that Christianity had not shown any “aggression” to the Muslim world, the former Pennsylvania senator — who is considering a 2012 run for the White House — argued that American intervention in the Middle East helps promote “core American values.”

“What I'm talking about is onward American soldiers,” he said. “What we're talking about are core American values. ‘All men are created equal' — that's a Christian value, but it's an American value.”

“It's become part of our national religion, if you will,” he continued. “The point I was trying to make was that the national faith, the national ideal, is rooted in the Christian ideal — in the Judeo-Christian concept of the person.”

Nominee for Alabama governor Bradley Byrne #fundie politico.com

As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God. As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school textbooks. Those who attack me have distorted, twisted and misrepresented my comments and are spewing utter lies to the people of this state.

If you thought the media was in Hussein's pocket during the election, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Fairness Doctrine? Folks, talk radio is equal time and provides the balance that the liberal mainstream media Obamabots fear. They are so intimidated by anyone who dares express a conservative or alternative viewpoint that they choose to resort to personal attacks or cower in denial rather than see their liberal views exposed and shredded yet again before the public. Before this is all said and done, the media's assskissin' and constant groveling at the feet of the annointed one will go beyond comical. So long objective journalism. It was nice knowing you.

Any person that states they are a Christian and supports Obama better READ the Bible and take a good hard look at their faith. A true, born-again Christian knows that abortion and homosexuality is NOT of God and Obama supports these agaendas. Use your brain and vote McCain.

This is just a ploy to bring down the Christian religion. Gay marriage becomes law. A church refuses to marry gays. ACLU sues them and sets a precedent. Now the choice for the churches are either to perform the marriages or close down, undermining the very foundations of the Bible and the religion itself. It's all part of the Communists' plot to destroy what this country was founded on. Thus ushering in their totalitarian state.

The basis for morality is this: "If everyone else in the entire world were to do this, would it be good for society?" That being said Gay relationships cannot naturally lead to offspring (a petri dish is not natural). If everyone in the whole world was to turn homosexual then that would be the end of the human race through natural reproduction. That sure doesn't sound moral to me. We can apply the same test to murder, abusing drugs, stealing/lying, sex with animals, etc. Basically Homosexuality is just as immoral as murder, you can't beat that logic.

Al Gore is for gay rights because he thinks we are a deer heard out of control. He wants people to die and stop having children so they will stop hurting the "environment", which is his false religion that he worships. He's pathetic.

Mike Huckabee #fundie politico.com

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, surging in Iowa polls in the Republican presidential race, wrote on a questionnaire while running for U.S. Senate in 1992 that homosexuality is "aberrant" and "sinful."

"I feel homosexuality is an aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle, and we now know it can pose a dangerous public health risk,"

[...]

Huckabee also wrote that he wanted to quarantine AIDS patients, according to the AP:

"If the federal government is truly serious about doing something with the AIDS virus, we need to take steps that would isolate the carriers of this plague.... It is difficult to understand the public policy towards AIDS. It is the first time in the history of civilization in which the carriers of a genuine plague have not been isolated from the general population, and in which this deadly disease for which there is no cure is being treated as a civil rights issue instead of the true health crisis it represents."

[...]


Perhaps more damagingly, he has not warded off questions about his role in the 1999 parole of a rapist, supported by Arkansas pastors, who went on to kill a mother of three.
