Cruz & Cassidy Introduce a Resolution Labeling Antifa a Terrorist Organization, But Here’s Why It’s Ridiculous

Westlake Legal Group hand-2593747_1280-620x418 Cruz & Cassidy Introduce a Resolution Labeling Antifa a Terrorist Organization, But Here’s Why It’s Ridiculous washington D.C. Violence Uncategorized Texas Ted Cruz republicans Media Louisiana law Judicial Front Page Stories Featured Story Fascism democrats Culture crime Congress civility Bill Cassidy antifa Allow Media Exception

 

 

On Thursday, Senators Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy introduced a resolution to formally label violent pro-fascism group Antifa a domestic terrorist organization.

It should be noted: That’s exactly what they are.

A catalyst for the move — though it wasn’t needed — was the Tacoma, Washington attack of a border detention center, wherein 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen appeared with a rifle and tried to ignite a large propane tank.

Now-deceased Willem did manage to set fire to a car, and far-left Twitterers — twits for short, if you will) hailed him a martyr and a hero (here-o)

Another recent Antifa assault: The beating of conservative journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, which reportedly left him with a bleeding brain (here).

Ted Cruz explained via tweet:

“Antifa is a terrorist organization composed of hateful, intolerant radicals who pursue their extreme agenda through aggressive violence. Time and time again their actions have demonstrated that their central purpose is to inflict harm on those who oppose their views. Like any terrorist organization they choose to pursue their political ends through violence, fear & intimidation. They must be stopped. I’m proud to introduce this resolution w @SenBillCassidy to properly identify what Antifa are: domestic terrorists.”

Yes, they are.

And fascists.

Mr. Cassidy of Louisiana offered his own social media statement:

“Antifa is a domestic terror organization. This is a group of hateful, intolerant radicals pursuing their extreme agenda through violence. They are masked bigots, attacking others b/c they don’t agree with their ideas. The time to stop Antifa is NOW!”

On Bill’s official site, he notes the goofiness of having an ironic name:

“Antifa are terrorists, violent masked bullies who ‘fight fascism’ with actual fascism, protected by Liberal privilege.”

The resolution contains 5 points:

Now, therefore, be it resolved, that the Senate—

(1) calls for the groups and organizations across the country who act under the banner of Antifa to be designated as domestic terrorist organizations;
(2) unequivocally condemns the violent actions of Antifa groups as unacceptable acts for anyone in the United States;
(3) expresses the need for the peaceful communication of varied ideas in the United States;
(4) urges any group or organizations in the United States to voice its opinions without using violence or threatening the health, safety, or well-being of any other persons, groups, or law enforcement officers in the United States; and
(5) calls upon the Federal Government to redouble its efforts, using all available and appropriate tools, to combat the spread of all forms of domestic terrorism, including White supremacist terrorism.

That’s all fine and good. But the reality is that none of this should be necessary. True — the U.S. can’t have a bunch of black-masked goons running around committing assault and arson. But we already have a “resolution” for that: It’s called law enforcement; court; prison. A system to prevent violent fascism is already in place. None of these hooligans should’ve been allowed to do what they’ve done, from the outset. 

And if city and state officials aren’t willing to stop them now, because they haven’t been willing to stop them yet, how will a resolution make a difference?

The scenario reminds me of Alyssa Milano’s Christmas gift to the world — wherein she forgot there are police (here).

Thus far, it seems authorities and the media have sat back and allowed the fascism of Antifa to rule any street upon which they’ve decided to idiot.

Don Lemon’s given them a pass (here), and if you need a reminder of the insanity, please, please watch this interview.

The issue of Antifa isn’t about Left or Right, Democrat or Republican; it’s about liberty and public safety.

The government needs a resolution, alright, but not the congressional kind. It needs the resolve to stop the insane fascism of violence in the public square, regardless of who’s committing it.

In British Columbia, small businesses are facing a gender-identity discrimination lawsuit brought by a man named Jessica Yaniv.

Jessica considers himself a lesbian, and he’s brought over a dozen complaints against women in the Vancouver area who perform female Brazilian bikini waxing but refused to wax his furry female sources of semen.

Five women under the gun are being represented by the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms.

Very strange — women face the threat of being forced by the government to handle a man’s testicles.

Shouldn’t #MeToo have something to say about that?

Here’s the lesbian:

The JCCF’s president, John Carpay, says the victims of Jessica’s filings are mostly poor, ESL immigrants.

He also believes it’s likely multiple ladies’ve had to shut down their businesses as a result of the apparently-hairy-balled litigator.

That’s certainly the case of Brazilian immigrant Maria Da Silva — she testified Wednesday that she’s had to close up shop.

The girls who’ve declined to grab gonads have explained that they aren’t qualified to deal with the complexities of male genitalia.

Note to all men searching for scrotum service: If a technician tells you she can’t help because she doesn’t know how to properly rip the hair out of your sack, BELIEVE HER. That’s not something you want done by someone who doesn’t know how.

At an earlier hearing, an esthetician who works on nads to attested that fact — it’s different.

But there’s more at stake than just the ripping of wrinkled skin — some of the women — John asserts — have religious reason for not juggling Jessica.

But Jess says he’s protected:

As relayed by The Post Millennial, Justice Centre lawyer Jay Cameron claims the real victims are those who don’t want to manage Jessica’s lesbian penis:

“Some of my clients have been very significantly affected on a personal level. [Another client also] closed her business, she has been depressed, anxious, sleepless and that has gone on for a period of many many months.”

Win or lose, this is all a very costly endeavor.

The Daily Caller reports:

Even if the women are successful in defending themselves against the allegations of discrimination in violation of section eight of the British Columbia Human Rights Code, the complaint could cost them $10,000, $20,000 or even $30,000 in legal fees, said Carpay. He also believes some women have already paid Yaniv thousands of dollars in settlement money to avoid going to court. The Justice Centre is providing representation to the women free of charge.

Here’s a bit more from TDW:

[C]omments Yaniv has made regarding girls and tampons and girls in locker rooms were introduced in the hearing to assess Yaniv’s credibility as a witness, according to Carpay. Dozens of texts by “Jonathan Yaniv,” which are publicly online, show Yaniv discussing girls as young as 10 to 12 in extremely disturbing terms.

“If I notice a girl that’s nude below and has a tampon string coming out when I’m changing and doing my stuff, is it weird to approach her to ask her for a tampon? or pad? Just to bond with her a bit over period stuff…. I really want to make friends in there, that’s kinda a goal of mine,” Yaniv said.

“If there’s like 30 girls in the change room, how many of them would you say are out there changing freely with their vaginas and tits out?” Jessica Yaniv said under the name “Jonathan Yaniv.”

Whether you’re for or against Jessica, or empathetic or stone(s)-cold toward the women in the hot seat, there’s one thing on which everyone can agree:

At the center of this case…is a nutjob.

Why Do Republicans #Persist in Adding Government to Health Care?

 

Westlake Legal Group persist-800x800_10b4b419-72b8-4b93-836e-95eacfded6ac_580x@2x-620x237 Why Do Republicans #Persist in Adding Government to Health Care? senator lamar alexander republicans Politics Policy Obamacare News medicare for all lower health care costs act of 2019 law healthcare Government Front Page Stories Front Page Economy democrats Business & Economy Bipartisanship bipartisan

Welcome to Tweetlandia.  The shambling wreck of a carcass our once great nation has become.

One of the very many trends that exists in Tweetlandia – is the diminution of all thought.  Often down to Twitter hashtag length – and depth.

One such Leftist hashtag pseudo-thought – is the anti-everything-to-the-Right-of-Karl-Marx #Persist.  It’s one-word-brevity is of particular assistance to its Leftist wielders.

In Tweetlandia, the Urban Dictionary has replaced Merriam Webster’s – so we go there:

“Persist: Continue firmly or obstinately in an opinion or a course of action in spite of difficulty, opposition, or failure.”

Leftists #Persist in pursuing all sorts of already-proven-to-be failures.

To wit: Government medicine.  Government medicine – is an unmitigated disaster.

Obamacare was a huge disaster:

“Obamacare stripped millions of people of their insurance.  For those who survived that mass slaughter – Obamacare doubled the average insurance premium and tripled the average insurance deductible.”

Following on Medicare – which is a $38-trillion-short titanic disaster:

“The unfunded liability is the amount that has been promised in benefits to people now alive that will not be funded by the tax revenue the system is expected to take in to pay for those benefits.”

And that titanic shortfall – is with private insurance subsidizing the daylight out of Medicare.

Medicare For All – What About Cost Shifting?:

“When Medicare was introduced in 1966, the government reached out to the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association to come up with a way to determine what to pay hospitals for treating patients….

“Medicare quickly figured out a sad truth. There wasn’t enough Medicare money….

“The Inpatient Prospective Payment System was implemented, meaning all direct connection to costs were now gone – but however you sliced it, Medicare was now paying less than the cost of treating patients.

“If Medicare did not pay its fair share, then hospitals would make it up on other payers. This is known as cost shifting.”

Get that?  Medicare payments don’t even cover the base costs of treating patients.

Private patients and their insurance companies – have been subsidizing Medicare since just about its 1966 inception.

Yet the Leftists #Persist.  Because $38 trillion short – ain’t nearly enough of a nation-wrecking debit to stop the Left.

Oh – and the Left wants to ban all private insurance.  You know, the companies that have been propping up Medicare for decades.

So everything medicine can as quickly as possible collapse into one giant smoldering government-induced heap.

#Persist!

Why any Republican anywhere would in any way expand government’s role in medicine – is light years beyond me.

Yet we have just such Republicans.  Joining the #Persist “movement” – whether they realize it or not.

A great many of us have spent the last several weeks pointing out the stupidity of this notion.

Why Are Some Republicans Looking to Add More Government to Health Care?

Yet these Republicans…#Persist!:

Behold – Tennessee Republican Senator Lamar Alexander.  Who very recently penned an editorial defending his government-expanding decision.  His very own title – admits the inherent error.

Lower Health Care Costs Act Aims to End Surprise Billing

Your legislation “aims to end surprise billing” – ?!?

Government is the worst shot in the history of aiming.

Obamacare aimed to “reduce premiums by $2,500 per year.”  They DOUBLED.

I guarantee you no one around at Medicare’s inception said they were aiming to put US taxpayers $38 trillion underwater.  Yet that’s what it’s done

Yet Senator Alexander #Persists:

“Instead of remaining stuck in a perpetual partisan argument over the Affordable Care Act and health insurance, senators are working across party lines to lower the costs of what Americans pay for health care out of their own pockets.”

Of COURSE Democrats want to stop talking about Obamacare (the woefully mis-named “Affordable Care Act.”)

Democrats were either exponentially wrong about it – or lying their faces off about it.

Republicans won more than 1,000 elected offices up and down the ballot since Democrats jammed Obamacare down our throats.  And only started again losing seats – when it became clear their promises to repeal Obamacare were…exceedingly disingenuous.

Republicans should want to continue the Obamacare conversation – right up until they actually repeal the awfulness.

But on this they do not #Persist.

More from Senator Alexander:

“(U)p to half of the $3.5 trillion Americans spent on health care in 2017 may have been unnecessary, according to testimony before the Senate health committee from the National Academies.”

Yes, we have.  And an excruciating percentage of this unnecessary expenditure – is the subsidies we are forced to provide to prop up Medicare.

So how on Earth does Senator Alexander think his “aim” – on this the latest government “solution” to high health care costs – be any better?

Answer: Of course, it absolutely isn’t.

Government is the reason our health care system is as screwed up as it is.

Senator Alexander – we need LESS government.

Your bill – is more.

Which only makes sense in Tweetlandia.

Bracing for ICE Raids, Mayor Garcetti & LA’s Police Chief Assure Illegal Immigrants: ‘We Will Not Enforce Immigration Laws’

On Sunday, I covered New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s statement that the Big Apple belongs, in part, to all those in the country illegally (here).

The remark was made in defiance of national security law protecting the border, as ICE raids begin against — specifically — those court-ordered to self-deport who haven’t done so.

In the same spirit, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti stepped up the protest plate Saturday night.

Raids had been set for Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Denver, New York City, San Francisco, Baltimore, New Orleans, Houston, and Los Angeles.

In a video released by the mayor, assurances were made:

“Rest assured: Here in Los Angeles, we are not coordinating with ICE.”

In the clip posted to Twitter, Eric noted the purported plans of the U.S. government:

“We’ve all heard reports that the Trump administration is threatening to round up and deport thousands of immigrant families in cities across America this weekend.”

In light of the fact, he offered advice to those hiding out:

“No matter their immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know their rights and how to exercise them. Remember: You have the right to remain silent. You don’t have to open your door to an ICE agent that doesn’t have a warrant signed by a judge. You have the right to speak to a lawyer before signing any documents or speaking to law enforcement. And if you need help finding an attorney, you can call 311 and learn more about our Justice Fund and other resources that offer legal support. And whenever possible, keep a record of everything that happens. Take note of an officer’s name and badge number, of when and where you are being questioned, so you can use that information in your own defense.”

Up with advice, down with ICE:

“And most importantly, I want you to know: You do not need to be afraid. Your city is on your side. And rest assured: Here in Los Angeles, we are not coordinating with ICE.”

Eric stood beside LA Police Chief Michel Moore, who added his own refusal to cooperate with the government:

“We will not enforce immigration laws that are civil in nature and fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government. … Everything we do is focused on what’s best for the security and safety of all Angelenos, and consistent with our commitment to constitutional policing and deepening our community partnerships. Simply put, we are here to protect and serve all the people of Los Angeles, regardless of their immigration status.”

Eric and Michel have a unique way of addressing situations. In light of the city’s horrific homeless problem, Michel recently served up his version of a solution: Cancel all bench warrants for homeless people (here).

No word on how many times one has to defecate on the sidewalk in order to qualify as homeless and therefore receive the prize of removed warrants. But why take a chance? I say give it 4 or 5, at least.

#Piles4Pardons.

Independent thinkers, indeed.

Enjoy the video above.

Localities Shouldn’t Be Dictating (Inter-)National Policy

Westlake Legal Group world-map-SCREENSHOT-620x368 Localities Shouldn’t Be Dictating (Inter-)National Policy washington D.C. Technology Taxes progressives Privacy Politics Policy News network neutrality Net Neutrality National Security law Internet International Affairs Government Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy fifth generation wireless federalism Economy Constitution China California Business & Economy 5g

California Does Not Have Jurisdiction Over This

 

Federalism is too infrequently mentioned.  And when it does come up – it is woefully misrepresented and abused.

Let’s check with our old friend Merriam Webster:

“The distribution of power in an organization (such as a government) between a central authority and the constituent units.”

Our Constitution is fully imbued with decentralized federalism.

The Founding Fathers – were brilliant.  Not only in limiting for what the “central authority” is responsible – but in rightly assigning the policies for which it is.

The Constitution gives the federal government (the “central authority”) a few expressly enumerated powers.  And then the Ninth and Tenth Amendments give all other power(s) to “the States and the People.”

Merriam’s “constituent units” – are the fifty state and very many municipal governments.  Most unfortunately, as government is want to do – the “constituent units” insist on doing (too much) of their stuff…and the central authority’s limited portion as well.

We certainly see this with immigration.

These are the policies this country has with regard to whom and how many from other countries we allow to come here.

Which is clearly a national prerogative – and therefore clearly a federal government prerogative.

But behold the “Sanctuary _____” – States, Cities, Counties, etc.

These non-federal elected officials openly flout our immigration laws – and allow illegal aliens to stay in their jurisdictions.  Worse, they openly obstruct justice – refusing to cooperate with federal authorities on the rare instances they decide to enforce our immigration laws.

These non-federal elected officials – should be in prison.

And as with all things rightly national – pretending it’s local…doesn’t keep it local.

Los Angeles, California has been a Sanctuary City for decades.  Illegal aliens have spent these decades pouring in there – and the result has been a mass disaster area.

But it doesn’t just stay there.  Once they’re in LA – they don’t have to stay in LA.  They can move to anywhere else in America they wish – completely unfettered by the checks rightly and wisely imposed along our borders.

LA’s alleged local preemption of rightly national immigration policy – doesn’t keep it local.  It becomes a national disaster.

As demonstrated by the massive illegal alien problems throughout the country.  Including in far-flung “border areas” like Long Island, New York and Portland, Maine.

This is our non-federal governments – making massive national messes.

So too are they doing with the World Wide Web.

Get that first word – “world.”  We again check with Merriam:

“The earth with its inhabitants and all things upon it.”

Like with immigration, this clearly means the Internet’s rule and regulation – is a federal government prerogative.

Just like with immigration, there are very many reasons the Constitution insists the Internet is federal – whether the fore-thoughtful Forefathers realized all of them or not.

To wit: We are currently in a race with Communist China to be first to the Fifth Generation (5G) wireless Internet.

If Communist China were to beat us to 5G – it would be bad for our economy.

If Communist China were to beat us to 5G – it would be VERY bad for our national security.

Why the Founders made the Internet federal – economy:

We now invite you to (re)visit the Commerce Clause:

“[The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes….”

The most originalist reading….:

“The narrowest definition of ‘to regulate’ is to ‘make regular,’ that is, to facilitate the free flow of goods, but not, except in cases of danger, to prohibit the flow of any good.”

Why the Founders made the Internet federal – national security:

We don’t want Communist China setting global Web standards.  Which they get to do – if they get to 5G first.

There are all sorts of global implications to our World Wide Web policy.  Which is why non-federal governments should be doing…nothing at all to the Internet.

Leftist non-federal officials want very stupid Internet policies imposed.  Policies We the People won’t elect federal officials to impose.  (How dare We not.)

So these provincial officials are unconstitutionally doing it themselves.

Oregon Enacts Net Neutrality Law as Pacific Northwest Trump Resistance Grows

California Lawmakers Pass Nation’s Toughest Net Neutrality Law

Maine Governor Signs Net Neutrality Bill

Again, a reminder – locals messing with national policy…never stays local.

So even if you like a law’s concept – you may not like how this state or that details it.  If you’re to the Right of Karl Marx – you almost certainly won’t like how nation-warping California details it.

California Passes Strict Internet Privacy Law With Implications For The Country

Maine Passes Nation’s Strictest Internet Privacy Protection Law

New Jersey Passes Consumer Privacy Act:

“State laws governing the collection and use of personal information continue to proliferate.”

Again – this is NOT a good thing.

Our nation’s provincial governments are very often…provincial.  In thought and deed.  When they mess with (inter-)national issues – their provinciality is often highly damaging to our nation.

Which of course means provincial officials are more than happy to eviscerate the Constitution’s federalism and damage our national policy – when it means taking more money from us.

Want Cheaper, Better Internet?  Limit the Local Government Shakedowns of Internet Providers:

“(Internet Service Providers) ISPs show up in your area – looking to spend millions or billions of dollars to build or improve their service to you.

“But before they can do that – they must first play ‘Mother May I’ with the government(s) in your area.

“You know, the governments that are already taxing the living daylight out of ISPs.  That now create ridiculous lists of additional demands of ISPs – for the ISPs’ ‘right’ to spend millions or billions of dollars providing you service.

“It’s like very many governments going shopping – with the ISPs’ credit cards….

“The number of cities and towns making…ridiculous demands is staggering.  The wide variety of these ridiculous demands is mind-numbing.

“All of which are geared by government – to find new and additional ways to extract ever more money from the ISPs.”

So…imagine being an Internet Service Provider (ISP).

You have to deal with 194 different nations’ Internet laws, regulations and taxes.  As each enters the US portion of the World Wide Web – and (if you do) you enter each of theirs.

And now you have to deal with fifty different state governments’ Internet laws, regulations taxes?

Oh – and thousands of municipal governments’ laws, regulations and taxes?

What a giant anti-economy, anti-national security, anti-coherence nightmare mess.

The Feds are currently working to restore Constitutional order.

They are looking to streamline the local shakedowns – and preempt the local laws.

God bless each and every one of them for so doing.

ICE Begins Its Raids On Illegal Immigrants Under Court Order in NYC. De Blasio Assures the Targets: ‘This is Your City’

Big news in this current climate: Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents began the first raid in an impending series as the Trump administration moves to detain and deport a distinct group in the country illegally.

The following was the response of NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio:

“Receiving reports of attempted but reportedly unsuccessful ICE enforcement actions in Sunset Park and Harlem. To everyone worried this weekend: This is your city. We will do everything we can to protect you.”

What’s his intention in giving them the city? Well, Bill indicated in January he’d like to take all the money from the people who shouldn’t have it and give it to the people of his choosing (here).

Kind of a Robin Hood who uses force of gun. Oh, wait — that’s called a thief.

To be fair, depending on your perspective, the forceful transference of resources — to some degree — could describe the government in general; so Bill’s merely keeping up with the times. Still, he seems desirous to take it up a notch or ten.

An official confirmed ICE’s attempt Saturday — in the neighborhoods of Manhattan’s Harlem section and Brooklyn’s Sunset Park — to The Wall Street Journal.

No arrests were made.



 

Who are the targets of the effort? That would be people who’ve resisted court orders to self-deport.

The raids will be performed in 10 major cities:

Atlanta
Chicago
Miami
Denver
New York City
San Francisco
Los Angeles
Baltimore
New Orleans
Houston

On Sunday, ICE Acting Director Matthew Albence explained the task to Fox News thusly:

“We are doing targeted enforcement actions against specific individuals who have had their day in immigration court and have been ordered removed by an immigration judge. We are merely executing those lawfully issued judge’s orders.

“These are individuals who have come into this country illegally, had the opportunity to make an asylum claim in front of an immigration judge, and most of them chose not to avail themselves at the opportunity and didn’t even show up to their first hearing.”

The battle continues. Will heightened defiance on the Left in America’s sanctuary cities hurt Democrats’ 2020 chances? As indicated by a poll covered by RedState’s Bonchie, the farther Left antics among Blue State operatives appear to be turning off voters. Presumably, the upcoming hoopla won’t help.

Qatar Using Italy to Abuse US: Government Money Warps Everything Everywhere

Westlake Legal Group Cicci Qatar Using Italy to Abuse US: Government Money Warps Everything Everywhere us travel association United Arab Emirates United Airlines unions trade qatar Politics Policy Open Skies News law italian air International Affairs Government Front Page Stories Front Page Free trade Economy Delta Air Lines Business & Economy American Airlines airlines airline industry

One hundred-plus countries engage each year in tens of trillions of dollars worth of global trade.

Far too many nations engage in all sorts of anti-free trade actions – so as to warp the markets to their advantage.

And when caught, far too many nations don’t stop their anti-free trade actions – they look for new and innovative ways to continue rigging the system.

To demonstrate an ongoing, rolling, evolutionary scam, we humbly give you – The Open Skies Agreement:

“‘The United States has 120 Open Skies agreements with countries from around the world. The agreements are meant to expand international passenger and cargo flights to and from the United States.’

“Outstanding – until someone starts cheating and lying:

“‘The Partnership for Open and Fair Skies released a report in January 2015 that alleges that the governments of Qatar and the U.A.E. have granted close to $40 billion in subsidies and “other unfair benefits” to its state-owned carriers.

“‘Since then, they say, another $10 billion has been identified as government subsidies.

“‘The Partnership asserts that the subsidies violates the Open Skies agreements and undermines the basic principles of fair and open competition behind the Open Skies policy.’

“A fifty-yard dash is not a ‘fair and open competition’ – if the other runners are putting $50 billion worth of rocks in your pockets.

“You can call this all sorts of things – but you can not call it ‘free trade.’”

Thankfully, Qatar got popped for rigging the system.

Here’s How President Donald Trump’s Open Skies Deal with Qatar Will Help Make America Great Again

Unthankfully, Qatar didn’t start complying – they started an anti-free trade, anti-Open Skies workaround.

In the cinematic classic The Godfather – Part II, we are provided a precursor to Qatar’s latest move.  Mob enforcer Willie Cicci is testifying before Congress – and he has this exchange with Senator Pat Geary:

Senator Pat Geary: I’m interested to know, was there always a buffer involved?

Willie Cicci: A what?

Senator Pat Geary: A buffer. Someone in between you and your possible superiors who passed on to you the actual order to kill someone.

Willie Cicci: Oh yeah, a buffer. (Laughter)  The family had a lot of buffers.

Behold Qatar’s buffer – Air Italy:

Air Italy Is Just Qatar Airways Draped In An Italian Flag:

“Exploring new frontiers in commercial aviation, let’s take a chronically money-losing European airline and put it together with a heavily subsidized Middle East airline and then dramatically boost flying to the United States, even though the Middle East airline had indicated it wouldn’t do that.

“What do you get?

“‘The Italian version of Qatar,’ is what United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz called it earlier this month, during a conference call with reporters.

“In 2017, Qatar purchased 49% of Air Italy, which very quickly thereafter adopted a Qatar strategy:

“Build a hub with rapid expansion of U.S. service, enabled by lots of new airplanes purchased with government money.”

So Qatar hasn’t stopped their anti-Open Skies mass subsidies of flights into the United States.  They have purchased a foreign front – through which they run their mass subsidies of flights into the United States.

Whether the mass subsidies are in Qatari Riyal or Italian Euro – they are illegal.

I very much appreciate and admire President Trump’s taking on the mind-bogglingly monstrous task of trying to right the very many global trade wrongs the United States has for decades suffered.

One price of the mission – is eternal vigilance.

Having popped Qatar once – Trump must pop Qatar again.  And not just for the sake of the Open Skies Agreement:

“Qatar must be called to account, and not just for its own mischief but for the message that would send to the Chinese and other major U.S. trading partners.

“If Qatar Airways continues to use Air Italy as its proxy, and gets by with it, that would tell China, Japan, Mexico, Canada and Europe they can agree to trade deals and if they’re caught cheating the United States will look the other way. Someone could write a book, and call it ‘The Art of the Steal.’”

Which, by the way, countries like China have already been doing.

NAFTA’s ‘Uninvited Guest’: Why China’s Path to U.S. Manufacturing Runs Through Mexico

Uber-subsidizing China spent decades running trillions of dollars worth of their uber-subsidized goods through Mexico (and Canada) into the US.  To circumvent trade limits imposed upon them because of their uber-subsidies – by abusing the daylight out of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) advantages Mexico and Canada enjoyed.

Which Trump for decades understood.  Which is why he – when he became President – rightly killed NAFTA.

And Trump imposed steel and aluminum tariffs on Mexico and Canada – because China has been running through Mexico and Canada their ridiculously subsidized steel and aluminum.  Which he will remove when NAFTA successor USMCA – which addresses the China buffer – is ratified.

Qatar’s Air Italy – is China’s Mexico and Canada.

A Godfather buffer – to yet again get around the law.

President Trump popped Qatar once.

It’s time for him to do it again.

Woman Sues Hospital: If She’d Known Her 4-Year-Old Had Down Syndrome, She Would’ve Aborted Him

A woman in the UK is suing a hospital for failing to screen her unborn son for Down Syndrome.

Had she known he had the condition, the lawsuit claims, she would’ve had an abortion.

As reported by the Mirror, Edyta Mordel is attempting to hold the National Health Service accountable for the live birth of her son to the tune of £200,000.

Per the suit, the “wrongful birth…increased financial costs of caring for her son and for the impact on her own ability to work.”

4-year-old Aleksander was born in January of 2015 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. Hospital records reveal Edyta was “very angry and upset” upon being made aware of the baby’s condition.

According to her claim, doctors failed to administer testing which would’ve detected DS, despite the fact that she insisted. Purportedly, she even noted the need for such examination during her first meeting with a midwife.

Edyta believed the evaluation was performed at her 12-week appointment, though medical documentation speaks to the contrary.

As relayed by the Daily Mail, she appealed to London’s High Court thusly:

“I knew from the start I would agree on the Down’s syndrome screening, and I would not make any other decision. I was always sure about the decision, and I always wanted it. I spoke with the midwife about Down Syndrome screening. I had informed myself. I watched a lot of videos and read about screening.”

Her attorney insists both she and her partner — Aleksander’s father — would’ve “terminated the pregnancy.”

However, legal representatives for NHS contend that she declined the test and later regretted it.

More, from lawyer Michael de Navarro QC:

“Not only did her copy of the handheld notes contain the scan report saying that Down’s screening had been declined, but she must have realized that she had never had the result of screening which she had been told to expect.”

National Right to Life President Carol Tobias had something to say about the situation — to The Daily Caller:

“If a mother does not want to care for her precious little one, we would encourage her to let a loving family adopt and raise him, helping him to reach his full potential. And, no, a hospital should not be sued for bringing this innocent little one into the world.”

In terms of the Western culture at large, Edyta’s disposition — though shocking — isn’t such an outlier: Earlier in the year, New York approved the murder of infants mere seconds before they’re born (here); and Virginia’s governor is cool with them being murdered after birth (here).

But undoubtedly the most apt response to this story is a video shared by Ashton Kutcher in January.

Don’t miss its incredible power:

This man gave powerful speech on Down Syndrome

Everyone's life is valuable.

Missouri Police Department: Hiding Felony Suspect’s Loud Flatulence Ratted Them Out

Being on the lam from police can make a person nervous.

But when you’re hiding from cops, every criminal knows there’s one thing you never do.

Every criminal — but one.

This past weekend in Missouri, law enforcement was able to “sniff out” a suspect wanted for a controlled substance violation.

While hiding — and with cops trying to figure out their location — the subject of the hunt blew it.

Out of their lower intestine, that is.

The Clay County Sheriff’s Dept. posted to Facebook about the incident:

If you’ve got a felony warrant for your arrest, the cops are looking for you and you pass gas so loud it gives up your hiding spot, you’re definitely having a Westlake Legal Group 1f4a9 Missouri Police Department: Hiding Felony Suspect’s Loud Flatulence Ratted Them Out Uncategorized sheriff's department Not Today Internet Missouri Liberty law enforcement law Front Page Stories Flatulence Featured Story Culture clay county Allow Media Exception   day.

Apparently, despite the charge, their fart was one substance they couldn’t control.

Law enforcement in the Northland relied on some basic senses over the weekend to help them track down an alleged criminal.

“We’ve gotta give props to Liberty PD for using their senses to sniff him out!” the Liberty Police Department told KTVI.

I suppose it’s fitting that the incident occurred in Liberty — in an ironic and poetic twist (of the colon), the perhaps-soon-to-be-jailed suspect gave the fart its freedom.

As the city put it:

“Thanks to @SheriffClayCo for airing out a wanted person’s dirty laundry and fanning the flames.”

This isn’t the first time a biscuit of the air variety has made the news. See for yourself:

As for the moral of the story: Remember, kids — when you’re trying to avoid the lurking popo, watch out for APB’s (an Alerting-Police Butt while running from an All Poots Bulletin).

And depending on what you’ve had to eat, beware not only the popo, but that same word with the last two letters reversed. Again — controlling the substance is key.

A Continuing Degradation of Life: Government Orders the Killing Of a Man Who Was Left Quadriplegic By a Car Accident

Westlake Legal Group outdoor-silhouette-person-light-blur-people-636429-pxhere.com_-620x413 A Continuing Degradation of Life: Government Orders the Killing Of a Man Who Was Left Quadriplegic By a Car Accident vincent lambert united nations committee on the rights of persons with disabilities Uncategorized law Government Front Page Stories frank stephens France Featured Story Euthanasia european center for law and justic Disabled Culture Allow Media Exception

 

 

What happens when the government is put in charge of your healthcare? Well, sometimes, apparently, it’s this.

In 2008, 42 year-old Frenchman Vincent Lambert was in a car accident which left him a quadriplegic.

Fast-forward to last week, when France took away his food and water, dooming him to death.

As reported by Bioedge:

The Cour de Cassation overruled an appeals court which had directed doctors to keep Mr. Lambert alive pending a review of his situation by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities. Doctors plan to remove his hydration and nutrition, while keeping him as comfortable as possible while he dies of thirst and starvation. His treating doctor, Vincent Sanchez, urged his family to make sure that “support to Mr. Vincent Lambert is as peaceful, intimate and personal as possible.”

Peaceful, intimate, personal…that sounds nice. But then there’s that whole “forced to become no longer alive” part.

And it’s more than just a slippery slope, as noted by the European Center for Law and Justice:

Vincent Lambert has since become the symbol of the implementation of euthanasia in France, and beyond. Should he be euthanized, 1,700 other persons in the same state of health in France could suffer the same fate. The truth is that, according to his medical condition, he is not dying and could live many more years, if it wasn’t for the physician in charge of him.

The various diagnoses established throughout the judicial process indicate that Vincent Lambert is in a chronic state of altered consciousness that includes states ranging from “vegetative” to “minimally conscious state.” He breathes alone, sleeps and wakes up. He is fed by a gastrostomy (feeding tube). His movements and facial expressions are difficult to interpret medically, but there is no doubt that there is a possible interaction with people, however small it may be. For example, he turns his eyes and head towards his mother when she calls him.

There’s a familial fight for Vincent’s life: His parents — unlike his wife and siblings– do not support him being condemned.

On July 1st, his mother gave an emotional testimony:

I would like to speak to you today as a mother, and from the heart of a mother. I am at his (Vincent’s) side with his father, my husband, every single day. In order to visit and take care of our son, we had to leave our home and find a place to live in Reims. We wanted, of course, that he not be left alone, and to stimulate him, be close to him, and give him all the love we can still give, because Vincent is not at the end of his life; Vincent is not a vegetable. I have never seen a vegetable turn its head when you call its name. I have so many photos and videos that completely contradict what is being said in the press.

When I ask Vincent to turn his head, he looks at me; when I ask if he is happy—and I don’t know if this is a reflex or something more— but he does blink his eyes. And what traumatized me the most, I can tell you, is that the day before that on which the doctor had decided to stop his food and some of his hydration, the Sunday on which we visited him, Vincent was very emotional; so I asked him, “What’s going on Vincent?” and he began to cry. And this I can say is a sign for me that Vincent truly has an active conscience …

Why not listen to us? Vincent is a human being; he is not an object; they’re holding his head under water and I… It’s dramatic! That’s it, if I have come here for anything today, it is in the hope that at least his life might be defended here. Because the State, nobody listens to us, nobody wants to hear us, while we have evidence, we are the parents, we know our son, and he is used to us in his daily life and he expresses himself. That’s it, he doesn’t talk but he expresses himself.

Euthanasia is creeping into the planetary consciousness, and tiptoeing its way into the U.S.

As I reported in February, New Jersey has taken a major step toward the legalization of assisted suicide (here); and in December, New Mexico eyed a provision allowing “suicide tourism” for residents outside the state (here).

Where might the cultural change of death as part of the nation’s medical services lead?

Consider the case of Canada, where bioethicists outlined a position of killing children — without parental consent (here). And how about Belgium’s euthanization of an autistic woman (here)? In the Netherlands, the state ended the life of a 17-year-old girl. Her disease? Depression (here).

It seems to me that we, as a society, must always be championing life. Fighting for it. Hailing its virtue. It is, in my view, the greatest virtue of all.

And any move toward something different…is a move toward the dark side.

What do you think? Please share your thoughts in the Comments section.

In the meantime, and by contrast, enjoy this beautiful and inspiring video, in praise of lifeshared by Ashton Kutcher in January:
