BREAKING. Attorney General Barr Launches Investigation to Determine How the Russia Investigation Started and More

The Associated Press is reporting that Attorney General William Barr has directed that John Durham, the US Attorney for Connecticut, investigate the origins of the Russia probe and determine if the spying upon the Trump campaign was “lawful and appropriate.”

This is and interesting choice and a serious one:

Mr. Durham, who was nominated by Mr. Trump in 2017 and has been a Justice Department lawyer since 1982, has conducted special investigations under administrations of both parties. Attorney General Janet Reno asked Mr. Durham in 1999 to investigate the F.B.I.’s handling of a notorious informant: the organized crime leader James (Whitey) Bulger.

In 2008, Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey assigned Mr. Durham to investigate the C.I.A.’s destruction of videotapes in 2005 showing the torture of terrorism suspects. A year later, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. expanded Mr. Durham’s mandate to also examine whether the agency broke any laws in its abuses of detainees in its custody.

In both cases, Durham produced reports that were anything but a cover-up.

This now makes three investigations into the investigation. John Huber, who is now featured on milk cartons across the nation, is investigating something. The DOJ IG, Michael Horowitz, has been looking at the actions of the FBI and Department of Justice for over a year and is due to report to Barr next month. And now this.

The left isn’t happy:

I don’t known why they have their panties wadded, innocent men should look forward to being investigated so the record can be set straight and their names cleared. At least that’s what I’ve been told for the past two years.

All in all,the depth and breadth of the investigation makes me a little more comfortable in the belief that we will eventually get to the bottom of this and what is found there will lead to a significant reform in the FISA courts and in some other practices such as unmasking of US citizens and the use of allied intelligence services as cutouts for domestic spying.

Rod Rosenstein Goes Nuclear on James Comey and It’s Beautiful

Westlake Legal Group rosenstein-goosed-620x317 Rod Rosenstein Goes Nuclear on James Comey and It’s Beautiful Trump-Russia Investigation Rod Rosenstein Robert Mueller Politics nuclear Mueller report james comey Hillary Clinton hack Front Page Stories Front Page fox news Featured Story FBI donald trump doj criticism

I don’t think he’ll be getting plaudits from CNN anymore after this.

He had been rehabbed for a while after revelations about him wanting to record the President came out. His handling of Robert Mueller, or better yet his complete lack of oversight of the situation, also pleased resistance members everywhere.

Well, kiss that good will goodbye because Rosenstein lit up James Comey tonight in remarks before the Greater Baltimore Committee. This report is via Fox News.

Rod Rosenstein unloaded on former FBI Director James Comey in remarks to the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) on Monday evening, slamming Comey’s turn as a “partisan pundit,” reiterating that he deserved to be fired, and faulting him for trampling “bright lines that should never be crossed.”

Here’s the some of the criticism.

“Now, the former director is a partisan pundit, selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul,” Rosenstein said. “That is disappointing. Speculating about souls is not a job for police and prosecutors. Generally, we base our opinions on eyewitness testimony.”

Holy crap, that’s brutal. It’s also completely true.

Comey’s biggest flaw, aside from being a corrupt partisan, is that he sees himself as some kind of virtuous savior. Instead of following protocol, Comey spent his time staring into the abyss and making moral judgements on legal matters that should only be based on evidentiary standards.

Rod Rosenstein sees through Comey’s facade and pulls no punches. The shots at him about being a media pundit are also well deserved. Comey is not a serious person. He’s out to make a buck and keep his spot on the D.C. cocktail circuit.

The Hillary email investigation was also brought up in Rosenstein’s speech.

“The clearest mistake was the director’s decision to hold a press conference about an open case, reveal his recommendation and discuss details about the investigation, without the consent of the prosecutors and the attorney general,” Rosenstein said. “Then, he chose to send a letter to the Congress on the eve of the election stating that one of the candidates was under criminal investigation, expecting it to be released immediately to the public.”

Rosenstein added: “Those actions were not within the range of reasonable decisions. They were inconsistent with our goal of communicating to all FBI employees that they should respect the attorney general’s role, refrain from disclosing information about criminal investigations, avoid disparaging uncharged persons, and above all, not take unnecessary steps that could influence an election.”

This is basically the same thing that Robert Mueller did with his report. Instead of doing his job and simply making a recommendation on obstruction, he included thousands of footnotes in his report. The purpose of that was smear people who he didn’t have the guts to charge while not even doing the one thing he was appointed to do, which was to decide on the obstruction question.

Comey’s press conference may have actually been beneficial to Republicans at the time but that doesn’t change the fact that it was completely inappropriate. His appropriation of Loretta Lynch’s role (with her blessing via the scheme she cooked up) showed that Comey had no care for legal norms or standards. He essentially appointed himself as a fourth branch of government and to this day thinks he was righteous for doing so.

People like that are dangerous to have in governmental positions. Someone with no boundaries can justify doing anything and swear they are virtuous while doing it. Comey’s current mindset, complete with introspective tweets staring at trees, borders on delusion.

Firing Comey was long overdue and it’s nice to see Rosenstein not back down from his recommendation to do so. He should probably lay low a few days because the backlash from the media and liberals is going to be swift.

The Guardian Complains Trump and Hungarian PM Oban are “Man-Spreading” In Massive Shark Jump

Westlake Legal Group WTF-face-620x344 The Guardian Complains Trump and Hungarian PM Oban are “Man-Spreading” In Massive Shark Jump The Guardian Politics Media man-spreading Front Page Stories Feminism Featured Story donald trump Allow Media Exception

During its live coverage of the White House meeting between President Donald Trump and Hungary’s New Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, The Guardian felt it important to point out that two men were doing something shocking.

According to the UK’s most well-known publication, the two world leaders were “manspreading.”

Shocking, I know.

“Trump is in the Oval Office, talking to the press alongside prime minister Viktor Orban,” reported the Guardian. “They’re both man-spreading on a pair of yellow leather chairs.

Westlake Legal Group Capture-2 The Guardian Complains Trump and Hungarian PM Oban are “Man-Spreading” In Massive Shark Jump The Guardian Politics Media man-spreading Front Page Stories Feminism Featured Story donald trump Allow Media Exception

If you’re not up on feminist vernacular, “man-spreading” is a term meaning the natural spread of a man’s legs while he’s sitting due to his anatomical need to not squish sensitive parts of his body. Feminists have taken this natural position and used it as a way to make it seem men are exerting some sort of patriarchal control over the places they sit by taking up more space, specifically on buses or airplanes.

And rest assured, this is purely a feminist term. That The Guardian is using it in what is supposed to be a neutral play-by-play is enough to clue you into how biased it is in its reporting.

Of course, The Guardian’s clearly biased take on the meeting didn’t end there. When the topic of the Mueller investigation came up, Trump reiterated that the report found him innocent of every charge leveled at him by the left. The Guardian inserted that this was “a lie”:

After praising Orbán, Trump talks about the Mueller report. Trump says the report found “no collusion, and no obstruction”, which is a lie.

The Guardian then linked to a CNN article attempting to paint the Mueller report has not had said that at all, which it did. This had been a false narrative the left had been trying to cling to after the report’s release, with mainstream news organizations like CNN and MSNBC attempting to be creative in its interpretation.

However, as Brian Williams hilariously learned while interviewing Trump’s lawyer, Jay Sekulow, the writing was plain as day.

The derangement is real.

Amazingly, CNN Actually Criticized Rashida Tlaib for Her Latest Anti-Semitic Comments

Westlake Legal Group rashida-tlaib-channel-4-SCREENSHOT-620x330 Amazingly, CNN Actually Criticized Rashida Tlaib for Her Latest Anti-Semitic Comments rashida tlaib Politics Nancy Pelosi John King Ilhan Omar holocaust Historical ignorance Hell Freezing Over Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats CNN apologists anti-semitic   The controversy over Rashida Tlaib’s comments involving the Holocaust and Palestinians supposedly creating a “safe haven” for Jews continues to boil over.

As I pointed out in my other piece, her recounting of history is not only false, but disgustingly immoral. The Jews didn’t not suddenly show up post-1945 and far predate an Arab presence in the region. The Palestinians also did not help the Jews, but rather committed massacres against them before, during, and after the Holocaust. To take the genocide against Jews during WW2 and use it to propagate false Arab propaganda that paints Israeli’s as foreign outsiders was yet another in a long list of questionable comments from Tlaib that clearly show her incredibly anti-Semitic world view.

Amazingly, even CNN decided to tell the truth about this and criticized her today.

Here’s the full 5 minute segment.

In the segment, both guests condemn Tlaib’s insensitive ignorance of history and John King, the normally liberal host, actually corrected Tlaib by pointing out that her Palestinian ancestors collaborated with Hitler.

What you hear from the second guest is a little more telling though, as she opines that Republicans are “seizing” on the controversy to paint Tlaib as the face of the her party and that could be a big problem for the Democrats. In those comments you start to get a sense of why CNN was willing to have this segment when they’ve otherwise been faithful apologists for Tlaib and Ilhan Omar’s numerous anti-Semitic outbursts. The reason is simple.

Their survival instinct is kicking it. 

CNN realizes that there are some things that are a bridge too far for the country. Holocaust revisionism is one of those things. In order to protect Democrats, the network is finally starting to push back in hopes of tamping down the outrage and pushing Tlaib and others to the back of the room. The less they become the face of the party, the better CNN feels about Democrat perceptions among the populace.

Their efforts will be in vain though. Tlaib and Omar have garnered near untouchable status among the Democrat base. In fact, Nancy Pelosi came out today and demanded an apology from (checks notes)…Republicans for Tlaib’s comments. Democrats are too far down the rabbit hole and there’s no putting the monster they’ve created back in its box at this point.

Now, with all of this said and giving credit where credit is due, I’m sure tonight’s CNN primetime lineup will be full of Tlaib defenses and bashing of Republicans for daring to question her. Otherwise known as a return to normalcy.

Hoyer and Pelosi Demand Apology from GOP for Calling Out Tlaib’s “Calming Feeling” About the Holocaust

Westlake Legal Group hoyerpelosi-620x331 Hoyer and Pelosi Demand Apology from GOP for Calling Out Tlaib’s “Calming Feeling” About the Holocaust steny hoyer republicans rashida tlaib Politics Nancy Pelosi Jewish People Israel holocaust Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats antisemitism anti-semitism Allow Media Exception

Democrat leadership has chosen to run defense for the party’s blatant antisemitism, and are now demanding the GOP apologize for calling it out.

On Monday, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi both demanded President Donald Trump and the Republicans apologize to Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib after they attacked her for her comments about the Holocaust during a podcast.

Trump had called Tlaib out for her comments on Twitter, adding that she had a tremendous hatred for the Jewish people, and asked what would happen if he had said anything of this sort.

“If you read Rep. [Tlaib’s] comments, it is clear that President Trump and Congressional Republicans are taking them out of context. They must stop, and they owe her an apology,” tweeted Hoyer.

Pelosi also tweeted out a call for the GOP to apologize to Tlaib, accusing Republicans of taking her comments out of context.

“Republicans’ desperate attempts to smear [Tlaib] & misrepresent her comments are outrageous. President [Donald Trump] & House GOP should apologize to Rep. Tlaib & the American people for their gross misrepresentations.

What was it that Tlaib said exactly? The quote leaves little room for misinterpretation, unless just before this Tlaib uttered the phrase “here’s what a total antisemite would say about the Holocaust.”

Here’s the full quote from the “Skullduggery” podcast where she said it:

There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors, Palestinians — who lost their land, and some lost their lives their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways — have been wiped out, and some people’s passports. And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right? In many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.

Tlaib’s claim that Palestinians were killed while trying to provide a safe place for the Jewish people during WW2 is actually a massive lie as pointed out by the Daily Caller.

“Muhammad Amin al-Husayni, the Palestinian Grand Mufti at the time of World War II was friendly with Adolf Hitler and helped spread anti-Semitic propaganda leading up to the Holocaust,” wrote the DC’s Mike Brest.

Tlaib herself attempted to paint the GOP response to her quote in the same way Pelosi and Hoyer did, with accusations of being taken out of context.

It’s hard not to misinterpret Tlaib’s comments here. That the Democrats are running interference on her behalf shows just how much they’ve become comfortable with, so long as it runs contrary to anything Trump says or does.

This includes lying about the Holocaust, an even perpetuated by antisemites that took the lives of some six million innocent Jewish people.

This is the Democratic party trying to save face in the worst way.

(AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)

 

I came across an article in today’s Washington Post entitled “Trump and his Allies are Blocking More Than 20 Separate Democratic Probes in an All-Out War with Congress.” The authors write that “many experts call it most expansive White House obstruction effort in decades.”

Can anyone honestly blame him?

Donald Trump has been persecuted by the Democrats since it became apparent that he posed a threat to Hillary Clinton. He has been under constant investigations for three long years. No political candidate in U.S. history has been subjected to this level of scrutiny.

Their bogus investigations have undermined Trump’s presidency for over two years and weakened him abroad.

Following a nudge from the Loretta Lynch DOJ, the FBI scuttled the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information. None of you had anything to say after Hillary’s team took hammers to her old cell phones, or used bleach bit to destroy 33,000 emails which were under subpoena.

Shhh!

That cleared the way for her to become the next President of the United States. Whatever it takes, right?

Next, the Democrats trained their guns on candidate Trump. They worked with their counterparts in Ukraine and unearthed a phony ledger which showed a large cash payment had been made to Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort. This served two purposes. It forced Manafort to resign and left Trump in a shadow of Russian collusion.

This allowed the Democrats to turn that shadow of Russian collusion into a full-blown narrative.

Hillary Clinton, the DNC and finally the FBI enlisted a former British spy to craft a dossier of lies about the candidate. The spy took information from Russian operatives and none of it was verified.

The FBI infiltrated the candidates campaign with spies hoping to “set up” an overeager, somewhat naive junior advisor. A clever strategy really.

Based upon a comment which had been fed to this young man, and repeated to an elderly statesman over drinks at a London bar, the FBI opened up a counterintelligence investigation into then-candidate Trump. The investigation seemed to go nowhere. The boys at the FBI just couldn’t seem to find that illusive evidence which would tie Trump to the Russians.

Even the head of counterintelligence knew there was “no there, there.”

Unwilling to leave anything to chance, the boys at the FBI took out an insurance policy. Just in case. Because the alternative was so unacceptable. 

On Election Day, the unthinkable happened and Hillary Clinton was defeated. Shockwaves spread throughout Washington. When Democrats finally recovered, the insurance policy was put  into effect.

President-elect Trump’s FBI Director, James Comey, colluded against him. He briefed Trump on the existence of a silly, “salacious and unverified” dossier, the same document he had presented to the FISA Court three months earlier as the legitimate basis of an application for a warrant to spy on a member of the Trump campaign. Through his communications, the FBI  had a window into whomever he communicated with and so on.

Once the President-elect had been briefed, the Director of National Intelligence, who was also “in on it,”  gave the green light to the media, letting them know was okay to go ahead and run with the dossier story they’d been sitting on. This was same network that would soon become his employer.

The FBI had also been surveilling the incoming National Security Advisor. They used information learned from spying to catch him in a perjury trap. They had hoped he would spill on the President.

When the President informally asked the FBI Director to leave his NSA alone, Comey twisted that into obstruction.

Finally, after Rosenstein wrote a memo outlining the case for firing Comey, and the President had done so, the former-FBI Director leaked notes of his meetings with the President to the media hoping to trigger the appointment of a special counsel.

And Rosenstein did not disappoint. So, although the FBI had zero evidence ten months into their counterintelligence investigation that Trump had colluded with the Russians to win the presidency, the Special Counsel opened for business.

And for 22 months, this investigation has been the focus of Washington politics and has overshadowed everything else.

Did I forget to say that all of this was illegal?

The entire Democratic narrative has been a lie. It has ruined lives, wasted time and money and it has divided the country.

The President has cooperated with all of this for three long years. He’s just been exonerated from the final investigation. This was the one every Democrat had so much faith in.

And he’s done.

Sorry Democrats, we just can’t take you seriously anymore.

MUST WATCH: John Solomon Describes What He Thinks Strzok’s ‘Insurance Policy’ Meant (Among Other Things)

Westlake Legal Group trump-smirk2-620x414 MUST WATCH: John Solomon Describes What He Thinks Strzok’s ‘Insurance Policy’ Meant (Among Other Things) Russia collusion judicial watch John Solomon Front Page Stories Featured Story Abuse of Power

Donald Trump speaking at CPAC 2011 in Washington, D.C. by Gage Skidmore, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

In a stunning and dense interview with Judicial Watch, John Solomon, investigative reporter for The Hill, details what he’s learned about the entire Russia collusion “dirty trick” the FBI played on the Trump campaign — and describes what he thinks Peter Strzok meant in his ominous “insurance policy” text.

Solomon has done remarkable reporting on the collusion hoax, even while the establishment press refused to touch it. Like something out of a Hollywood noir film, he recounts how he came home one day in March 2017 to two men sitting in a blue sedan who proceeded to have a frank conversation with him in his driveway. He says they told him that his reporting up to that point on the FISA court — he was familiar with that court and found the FISA warrants related to Carter Page suspicious — was the tip of a very large iceberg that led to the entire intelligence apparatus under the Obama administration being used in an opposition research investigation into a political campaign.

“You’re on the cusp of something much bigger,” Solomon says the men told him. “Go get em.”

Despite never seeing those men again nor finding out who they were, Solomon began to dig into what they told him. Not knowing which candidate was the target, Solomon began his now-prolific trove of stories uncovering the falsity of the entire Russia collusion affair, recently confirmed by Mueller’s report.

A specific revelation concerns the aforementioned “insurance policy” discussion between FBI agents Lisa Page and her erstwhile lover Peter Strzok. Page said in July 2018 (information that was unsealed in March 2019) that the conversation had to do with the fact that the FBI didn’t have the evidence they needed to prove collusion with the path they were on so they were feeling out other options.

Among their texts was one concerning the so-called “insurance policy.” During her interview with the Judiciary Committee in July 2018, Page was questioned at length about that text — and essentially confirmed this referred to the Russia investigation while explaining that officials were proceeding with caution, concerned about the implications of the case while not wanting to go at “total breakneck speed” and risk burning sources as they presumed Trump wouldn’t be elected anyway.

Further, she confirmed investigators only had a “paucity” of evidence at the start.

Then-Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., kicked off that section of questioning by asking about the text sent from Strzok to Page in August 2016 which read: “I want to believe the path you threw out in Andy’s [McCabe’s] office—that there’s no way he gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take the risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

The former FBI lawyer explained how the FBI was trying to strike a balance with the investigation into the Trump campaign—which agents called “Crossfire Hurricane.”

Solomon essentially confirms this accounting, noting he believes the less-than-fruitful path was the one related to George Papadopoulos and the pivot was a focus on the Steele dossier. He does not mention other reporting that says Page and Strzok were concerned about “burning” a highly-placed informant.

But that’s hardly the only extraordinary information Solomon offers in his interview.

“We began to see the confines of a real scandal,” Solomon says at one point, early in the 30 minute video. “And the scandal wasn’t that Russia and Trump had colluded. It was that the DNC, Hillary Clinton and their researchers and British intelligence operative were colluding with intelligence agencies to try to create the appearance of such a collusion scandal on the other side. Deeply troubling.”

Some of the other bits of information Solomon offers include:

  • The Steele dossier was crucial to gaining the FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page. Solomon also says it is “remarkable that the court didn’t give more scrutiny” when confronted with handing out a warrant to spy on a person associated with a campaign using research from that campaign’s political opponent. Judicial Watch FOIA requests show there were no hearings at all related to the charge of Russia collusion.
  • He discusses the role of “one of the most interesting characters in the saga,” former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Solomon goes into detail about how Rosenstein was playing both sides of the investigation — reminding Trump he was able to fire Comey and then threatening to wear a wire in a meeting with the president, for example — and, even more fascinating, Rosenstein’s role in the 2009 court case related to Uranium One and the Russian company Rosatom, a deal that ultimately benefited The Clinton Foundation.
  • Solomon also goes over a recent story he wrote about a Ukrainian-American activist, working on behalf of the DNC, to dig up Russia-related dirt on Paul Manafort and the “black-ledger files” that ultimately led to Manafort’s undoing and a scandal in Ukraine over interference in the 2016 election.
  • Most interestingly, Solomon talks at length about what investigations will be happening going forward, including the IG report, Attorney General Barr’s investigation into the intelligence apparatus, and Sen. Lindsey Graham’s desire to look into the collusion narrative.

READY & RARIN’ TO GO: After Stinking it Up in the Polls, Beto O’Rourke’s About to ‘Reintroduce’ His 2020 Campaign

Westlake Legal Group beto-orourke-presidential-campaign-announcement-SCREENSHOT READY & RARIN’ TO GO: After Stinking it Up in the Polls, Beto O’Rourke’s About to ‘Reintroduce’ His 2020 Campaign Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

[SCREENSHOT FROM URL]

 

In some 2020 polls, presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke’s getting less than 1% support.

Not too shabby.

Oh, wait — no, that’s really, really, REALLY shabby. He stinks.

Yet, during the first 24 hours after announcing his campaign, he out-raised socialist Uncle Bernie.

So why the dramatic flop?

Last I heard, the skateboarding Democrat who looks like a former Beastie Boy was apologizing for being white and getting press for a poem in which he proclaims, “Wax my a**, scrub my b*lls.”

Oh, and there was this:

Communist Revolutionary: Privileged Millionaire Beto Vows To Destroy America’s Wealth & Privilege

So why’s he failing?

Whatever the cause, Beto’s hitting Reset.

According to the AP:

O’Rourke plans to step up his national media appearances after skipping most of that kind of exposure in recent months. He is scheduled to appear on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show on Monday night and ABC’s The View the next day. He’s also set to offer more concrete policy plans on top issues. So far, he’s issued just one, on climate change.

His climate position was dismissed as a Lite version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s cow-fart-fighting marvel of stupidity, the Green New Deal (here, here, here, here, and here). But wouldn’t that mean Beto’s was at least better?

Either way, he’s having a hard time:

O’Rourke acknowledges he’s struggled to find his presidential campaign footing.

“I think, in part, I was just trying to keep up when I first started out,” he said after addressing about 40 people at a recent house party in Newton, Iowa. “I really feel like I’ve found my rhythm and my pace, and I just feel comfortable, and I feel like this is what I’m supposed to be doing.”

Right — fans of the Big B can rest easy. His relative absence from the spotlight as of late’s been all about reconfiguration. And he’s about to reintroduce himself to the world:

In a tacit recognition that this approach isn’t working, O’Rourke is planning to try again, taking a hands-on role in staging a “reintroduction” ahead of next month’s premier Democratic presidential debate. As he finalizes his plans, O’Rourke has entered an intentional “quiet period” to build out campaign infrastructure, according to an adviser who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the campaign’s strategy.

One thing’s for sure: 2020 is anyone’s ball game. The election of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confirmed that. She proved voters are willing to pull the lever for someone young, inexperienced, without even general knowledge of general things, ready to talk nonsense at a moment’s opportunity, clueless of basic realities, wholly disconnected from the association between words and actions, unprepared, unreasonable, illogical…and with a nice figure.

Indeed, if AOC’s taught us anything, it’s that anything could happen in the next election. So who’ll be President?

Ronald Reagan designated 1983 “The Year of the Bible.”

The fart-fighting freshman congresswoman from New York has made it clear: As far as politics are concerned, 2019 could by The Year of the Dummy.

Good Luck, A**-Waxing, B*ll-Scrubbing Beto.

Abortion Advocates Attempt to Hijack Mothers Day In Bizarre and Disturbing Ways

If abortionists hate one thing, it’s the celebration of parenthood. Every Mother’s Day is a reminder that people out there are choosing life over supporting the narratives and methods of the holocaust that is the abortion industry.

So, in order to make it seem like their narrative thrives, even on days that deep down are a celebration of new life, abortion advocates craft narratives that latch on and distort the ideas behind the celebration of giving birth and raising children. One such example is pro-abortionists using the hashtag #ParentsHaveAbortion.

Abortion advocacy group “We Testify” attempted to paint aborting your children as a way to make you and your other children’s lives more meaningful and fulfilling.

And another.

Another attempted to link the right to parent with the right to abortion.

And if you’re wondering why they’re using the word “parents” instead of “mothers” after hearing for so long that men should have absolutely no say in the matters of abortion unless it’s to support it, it’s because they want non-binary and trans mothers to feel like they’re being included in the pro-abortion mothers day festivities as well.

While Planned Parenthood didn’t exclusively use the hashtag, they too got into the pro-abortion parent trend. Alexandra DeSantis of National Review pointed out that Planned Parenthood President Leana Wen sent out a fundraising email on Mother’s Day that if it weren’t for the abortion giant, she would have never been a mother.

To make this clear, the number one abortion provider in the nation is hijacking Mother’s Day to raise funds to continue to convince women to deprive themselves of the chance to be a mother.

And lest you think this is only directed at women, I’d like to remind you that the “#ParentsHaveAbortion” hashtag uses the term “parents” instead of mothers. The central theme is that it’s not just women who get abortions, but also trans men.

A group called Black Mamas Matter Alliance posted a depiction of masculine women (or feminine men?) holding children, with one even pregnant with child.

This is a clear bastardization of a celebratory day meant to honor women who have gone through the rewarding and painful process of giving birth to and/or rearing children. Abortionists are making this more about killing children and social issues than allowing mothers to have their moment in the spotlight.

Social Justice Advocates Aren’t Doing a Good Job Convincing Americans to Hire Based On Race

It was a great man who once said that we should judge each other, not on the color of our skin, but on the content of our character. Fifty-six years later, a minority of people in America could care less about the level of melanin you’re sporting, and more concerned about whether or not you can do a job.

According to PEW, while a majority of people say that it’s important for companies to promote racial diversity in the workplace, they also believe that merit and capability should come first.

Americans were asked “When it comes to decisions about hiring and promotions, companies and organizations should,” only 24 percent said they should take race and ethnicity into account in order to make the workplace more diverse.

A whopping 74 percent said that only qualifications should matter, even if it results in less diversity.

Despite the fact that this is 24 percent too many, this is, by far, a good thing. A workplace hiring based on merit and competence is going to succeed far more than a company hiring based on someone’s race. Not only is that a racist act, but it also opens the company up for horrific underperformance or worse.

Of course, not everyone agrees with this, and believes that diversity in the workplace needs to be forced.

“In both situations, people value the end result. They want a diverse campus, they want a diverse workplace, but they’re not necessarily ready to do the work to get that,” said Democratic pollster Pia Nargundkar according to MSN.

“They sort of want diversity to magically appear in both of these places without considering how that actually occurs,” she added.

I’m not sure that’s altogether accurate. Nargundkar is assuming that everyone has prioritized diversity in the workplace to the point of being ready to begin hiring people based on their skin color. A likely more accurate assumption is to say that people are far more open to a diverse workplace and would like to see it happen organically.

What the social justice community is doing when it comes to forcing diversity is to open up those who were brought in on superficial grounds to failure. These failures may result in firings and may cause undesirable numbers to accrue, which may lead to even larger problems.
