CNN Does Something Absolutely Disgusting On the Anniversary of 9/11

Westlake Legal Group fake-news-1024x578-620x350 CNN Does Something Absolutely Disgusting On the Anniversary of 9/11 white supremacy Unbelievable The New York Times Right Wingers Politics leftists Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story fake news Disgusting democrats CNN Amnesia 9/11

These people have no shame at all.

CNN continues its march past the brink of insanity by using the anniversary of 9/11 to push their favorite narrative. Namely, that Republicans are racist and that the real shame of today is that we have “amnesia” by not treating white supremacy seriously. Yes, on the anniversary of the worst attack on America in history, instead of reflecting on Islamic terrorism or simply focusing on the victims, CNN decided to run interference for terrorists and lecture Americans on the violence of “right-wingers.”

Because of course they did. They couldn’t give it a rest for even one day.

Here’s a screenshot of one of the graphics they put up.

Yes, this was a real segment. It was so absurd that some people actually thought the captures of it going around were photoshopped.

CNN calls it a “reality check” and instead of focusing on what happened on 9/11, including who perpetrated it, they deflect to blaming  “Right-wingers” for being the “deadliest terrorists.” I’m a right-winger. Am I a terrorist now? CNN apparently thinks so based on their vague use of language, which is obviously purposeful.

Wait, you mean if you wipe away 3,000 victims of Islamic terrorism from the record, suddenly Islamists don’t lead in the body count? Shocking if true.

I can’t begin to explain how ridiculous and disgusting this is. Today is about remembering the victims of 9/11. CNN ignores the dead and wants to rant about right wingers being terrorists. How do they think that makes the families of the victims feel? That they are so unimportant, so subservient to the leftist narrative, that they aren’t even counted in order for CNN to force a point.

Meanwhile, The New York Times decided to only push out a single editorial today discussing 9/11. What was it about? America’s Islamophobia of course.

The press at large are just trash. They couldn’t give it a rest for one day. Not one stinking day.

Supreme Court Slaps Down Rogue Ninth Circuit Judge and Gives President Trump a Huge Win On Amnesty

<a href="http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-184818761/stock-photo-supreme-court-building.html?src=oBS1uII_5StBhFBm1uHCeQ-1-4<Please credit Brandon Bourdages at Shutterstock.

We’ve chronicled the campaign of lawfare that the left has conducted against this administration for over two and one half years now. Whenever they’ve lost actual power, via changes in laws or changes in policy, they’ve toddled off to some nice tame and stump-broke progressive judge who will take control of the entire United States government by issuing a nationwide injunction. The White House and Attorney General have let it be known that they are well aware of the abuse of authority by federal judges who illegally make decisions for the entire nation based on the one case before them. The Supreme Court has let it be known that it’s majority, too, is becoming annoyed at federal judges acting as a combined legislative/executive branch and imposing their policy preferences on the country rather than ruling on matters of law.

The matter be close to coming to a head on the issue of the new amnesty rules promulgated by the Department of Justice. Basically, they say that if you come to the US seeking amnesty and you have transited any other nation or nations en route that you must have applied for amnesty in at least one of them and been turned down.

This should have been a fairly uncontroversial rule but because OrangeManBad groups with no apparent standing went to a federal judge, Jon Tigar, who is naturally situated in San Francisco. Tigar his so hostile to the administration that he gained the distinction of having President Trump label him an Obama judge. This caused the Lido deck cruise bunch to have a cow and provoked Chief Justice John Roberts to nonsensically proclaim that there were no Obama judges or Trump judges. Anyway Tigar ordered a nationwide injunction. The decision was appealed to the Ninth Circuit. Surprisingly, in a fit of sanity, the Ninth Circuit lifted the nationwide injunction, left it in place for the Ninth Circuit, and remanded the case for further fact finding. But, the Justice Department also took the nearly unprecedented step of asking the Supreme Court to take up the case immediately. Finding facts happened and in short order, two days ago, Tigar issued yet another nationwide injunction. Yesterday, the Ninth Circuit again limited the effect to that circuit. But today the Supreme Court had had enough Resistance bullsh**.

In what appears to be a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court removed the injunction and let the regulation go into effect nationwide. The order removes the injunction through trial and appeal to the Ninth Circuit. If the Ninth Circuit rules against the administration, the stay of any injunction remains in place until the Supreme Court either declines to hear the government’s appeal or when the Supreme Court makes a decision.

There is more than a little butt-hurt from the self-styled “wise Latina” but who really cares?

This is probably as much a shot across the bows of Resistance judges as anything else. It seems that the Supreme Court, for the most part, has heard Barr’s complaint and decided to do something about single federal judges setting national policy. If that is the case, then this has gone a long way towards establishing a bit of humility among our black-robed masters and restoring the rule of law.

Rematch: Former ICE Chief Thomas Homan vs. AOC (But This Time She Has A Gavel)

What’s worse than listening to AOC speak? Listening to her speak when she has a gavel at her disposal.

Tom Homan, former acting director of ICE, appeared at a hearing of the subcommittee of the House Oversight and Reform Committee. It was presided over by AOC, and this time she had a gavel.

The subcommittee was “holding an inquiry into the Trump administration’s decision to stop considering requests from immigrants seeking to defer deportation for medical treatment and other hardships.”

Once again Homan, who is known to speak his mind, is extremely unimpressed with the freshman congresswoman. And once again, the two clashed.

In the clip below, Homan tells AOC, “In my 34 years, I’ve never seen such hate toward a law enforcement agency in my life that you want to abolish them rather than do YOUR job and legislate.”

As he speaks, she is saying, “Mr. Homan, your time is expired. Mr. Homan, your time is expired. Mr. Homan, according to the rules of this committee…” A hand from the person sitting on her left is seen pointing to the gavel, which she picks up and slams down with a look of utter disdain on her face. “Mr. Homan, your time is expired. The chair recognizes Miss Hill.”

Miss Hill says, “Thank you Madame Chair.”

This isn’t the first time the two have clashed. AOC and Homan engaged in a fiery exchange at a subcommittee meeting in July about asylum rules and family separation.

In the clip below, AOC said to Homan, “The recommendation, of the many you recommended, you recommended family separation.”

He replies, “I recommended zero-tolerance. The same as it is with every U.S. citizen parent who gets arrested with their child…If I get arrested for a DUI and I have a young child in the car, I’m going to be separated.”

“With all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime,” she tells him.

Homan tells her, “If you want to seek asylum, then go to a port of entry. Do it the legal way. The attorney general of the United States has made that clear.”

Surprisingly, AOC says “OK” and moves on.

Clearly, Homan gets under her skin. Good for him.

Trump Tells Reporters Bolton Was A ‘Disaster’ On North Korea And ‘Out Of Line’ On Venezuela

Westlake Legal Group john-bolton-SCREENSHOT-620x334 Trump Tells Reporters Bolton Was A ‘Disaster’ On North Korea And ‘Out Of Line’ On Venezuela Venezuela North Korea john bolton Iran International Affairs Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump

President Donald Trump told reporters gathered at the White House Wednesday that now-ousted National Security Adviser John Bolton was a ‘disaster’ on policy related to North Korea, stepped out of line when it came to Venezuela, and had trouble getting along with other administration officials Trump considered invaluable.

Trump was particularly annoyed with Bolton for offending Kim Jong Un with a suggestion that the North Korean leader follow a “Libyan model” of negotiation by turning over his nukes.

“We were set back very badly when John Bolton talked about the Libyan model … what a disaster,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

“He’s using that to make a deal with North Korea? And I don’t blame Kim Jong Un for what he said after that, and he wanted nothing to do with John Bolton. And that’s not a question of being tough. That’s a question of being not smart to say something like that.”

Trump also expressed frustration with the fact that Nicolas Maduro continues to hold on in Venezuela and wasn’t responding to the sanctions and pressure strategy the U.S. was employing. Bolton was said to be a major purveyor of that strategy.

Bolton was also said to be a hard liner when it came to Iran and some reports are indicating Trump is “flirting” with lifting sanctions on Iran or backing a French plan to pay them to come back into compliance with the Obama-era nuclear deal.

Report: the DNC Launched an Initiative to Infiltrate Talk Radio. Are Their Instructions Still Being Followed?

Westlake Legal Group audio-3153963_1280-620x413 Report: the DNC Launched an Initiative to Infiltrate Talk Radio. Are Their Instructions Still Being Followed? washington D.C. Uncategorized tri talk radio initiative talk radio Rush Limbaugh Media Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories elections democrats Conservatives Congress Campaigns Bill Clinton Allow Media Exception

 

 

What the heck?

According to a new report, prior to the 1996 election — via which Bill Clinton faced a dubious 2nd term — the Democratic Party hatched a plan to inundate conservative talk radio show with callers who were sneakily in fact left-wingers. The mission? To push Democrat talking points.

Evidence of the Talk Radio Initiative was discovered within documents at the Clinton Presidential Library, as noted by The Washington Free Beacon.

According to the article, the effort was launched in light of the tremendous GOP victory of the 1994 midterms — for the first time since 1954, Republicans ruled the House.

In an internal report from the time, the DNC laid it out:

Democrats have largely ignored talk radio, and only since the last election, have we paid attention to how we can win back the airwaves and the discussion. We have now put our frustration into action.

So their idea was to convert hardcore conservative radio listeners with liberal ideas?

Yep. From the Free Beacon:

[W]ith the blessing of the Clinton White House, launched the Talk Radio Initiative (TRI) ahead of the 1996 campaign. The program trained thousands of operatives to call in to radio shows, conduct surveillance of their contents, and secretly disseminate Democratic talking points while posing as ordinary listeners.

Interesting plan.

Michigan Democrats prepared a guide; here’s a sample:

Volunteers must be able to keep the project confidential so as not to create the image of a “Democratic conspiracy” to infiltrate Detroit area talk radio shows. Democratic performance in the 1996 elections will no doubt be affected by the success or failure of this initiative.

So how’d they do?:

Radio show hosts long suspected that someone was training so-called “seminar callers” to inundate their shows with sympathetic callers. Lars Larson, a host in the Pacific Northwest since the mid-1990s, recalled being on the receiving end of many such calls, but was not aware that many may have been trained by the DNC.

“You would get calls, an hour apart, from different people with different voices and different names, but they would talk the same lines. So close that you knew that this was not a coincidence,” Larson said. “It was the same language on the same subject and the same arguments.”

Great jobs, ya stealthy spies.

It’s a real shame — Wolverine State Dems spelled out how to evade capture:

If you are afraid that producers are beginning to recognize your name and are weary of allowing you on the air, use an alias. For example, be Carol today, Sue tomorrow, and Debbie on Friday!

Genius!

According to the Free Beacon’s research, 23 states were involved in the mission, with 4,000 operatives on the ball.

Furthermore:

The records also revealed that the Clinton administration consistently kept tabs on and coordinated with TRI, considering it a crucial pillar of the administration’s plan to neutralize conservative radio in preparation for the 1996 election.

As per the report, at the 1996 Democratic Convention, TRI set up three-hour training sessions for the agents.

Rush Limbaugh responded to news of the initiative Tuesday; check that out here.

So did the project ever officially end?

The DNC-published instructions advised a novel approach:

Sound dumb. Even though you may have indicated a difference of opinion with the host, appear to present an opportunity for him to demolish you with his “superior” intelligence.

Some might suspect the same instructions are still being doled out.

On the Anniversary of Terror, Al Qaeda’s Wanted Chief Releases a Video Ordering All Muslims to Attack America

Westlake Legal Group man-nature-outdoor-sand-person-group-607884-pxhere.com_-620x414 On the Anniversary of Terror, Al Qaeda’s Wanted Chief Releases a Video Ordering All Muslims to Attack America Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

In commemoration of the ghastly September 11th attacks on New York, a terrorist leader is calling for Muslims to assault the United States, Europe, Israel, and Russia.

Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahri has managed to evade capture for 18 years, but his love of unique hats hasn’t waned:

Neither, apparently, has his zeal for murder.

In a new 33-minute video — which was intercepted by multiple intelligence agencies — he condemns those revolutionaries who’ve gone soft, including terrorists who have “reformed” while in jail. The same goes for any who’ve lamented the 9/11 attacks’ victimization of innocents.

But if an aspiring warrior would prefer to exclude civilian targets, al-Zawahri has some advice — as reported by CBS News:

“If you want Jihad to be focused solely on military targets, the American military has presence all over the world, from the East to the West. Your countries are littered with American bases, with all the infidels therein and the corruption they spread.”

The sixty-seven-year-old ascended to power after Osama bin Laden was neutralized by Navy SEALs in May of 2011; according to Fox News, he — like ISIS chief Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi — carries a $25 million dollar bounty on his head.

He’s believed to be presently hiding out in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

As per Fox, though ISIS has taken centerstage as of late, Al Qaeda is still a a very real and looming threat:

[The terrorist group] has been quietly curating a revived global game plan that will likely prove far more resilient and lethal.

It’s believed the jihadist organization currently boasts 40,000 members worldwide.

But President Trump has a message also — for any would-be militants interested in attacking the Land of Liberty.

In a speech at the Pentagon Wednesday, he made things very clear:

“If anyone dares to strike our land, we will respond with the full measure of American power and the iron will of the American spirit. And that spirit is unbreakable.”

“[W]e will go wherever they are, he said. “And use power the likes of which the United States has never used before, and I’m not even talking about nuclear power. They will never have seen anything like what will happen to them.”

Quite the difference, compared to President Obama’s former presentation. And a difference, perhaps, most Americans prefer.

Stay vigilant, America.

A 24-Year-Old with a Failing 2nd Heart Makes a Wish List, and Maybe You Can Help

Westlake Legal Group jennifer-ortiz-heart-transplant-SCREENSHOT-620x350 A 24-Year-Old with a Failing 2nd Heart Makes a Wish List, and Maybe You Can Help Uncategorized kdvr jennifer ortiz healthcare Front Page Stories Fox 31 Featured Story Denver Culture Conservatives Colorado Allow Media Exception

[Screenshot from KVDR, https://kdvr.com/2019/09/10/local-24-year-old-woman-in-heart-failure-asking-for-help-with-her-bucket-list/]

 

24-year-old Jennifer Ortiz, of Commerce City, Colorado, has started a GoFundMe page.

The reason? Her bucket list.

It’s one she shouldn’t — at such a young age — have to make.

But after being denied a third heart transplant — and with only a biventricular assist device keeping her alive — she doesn’t know how much longer she’ll have.

Her father, Danny, explained to Denver’s Fox 31:

“[BiVAD’s are] not designed to be a total artificial heart.”


Jennifer underwent her first transplant at 12 years old, following the diagnosis of an enlarged heart initially manifested by a prolonged cough.

In 2017, she received a 2nd heart, which is now failing.

As reported by Fox News, on September 5th, she was told she was being placed on palliative care.

Now she’s looking to do what she can with the time she has left.

“We’ve got to condense a lifetime into as much time as we have,” Danny explained.

A few of Jennifer’s hopes? To see the Big Apple, attend a Cowboys game, see The Ellen DeGeneres Show live, meet the Jonas Brothers, and enjoy a Broadway musical.

So why am I writing all this? Because of Jennifer, and because of you. After all — despite some claims to the contrary, conservatives have generous hearts. If you have a way of helping — whatever that might be — now you know of one more person in a world of need. Maybe you’ll assist her with your prayers. Or maybe you work for Ellen.

If you’d like to visit her GoFundMe — for which, of course, I cannot vouch — you can do so here.

On the page, Jennifer writes:

“If any of you have travelled to the destination I am going to, I’d love to get some ideas of what to do and see while I am there!”

Perhaps you have advice.

Politics and culture mean nothing without life; here’s to hoping Jennifer Ortiz has much more of it to live.

And in that gifted loan of time, may she — and may we all — find something wonderful.

Including the wonder of helping others.

Michael Flynn’s Legal Team Throws Down the Gauntlet

Westlake Legal Group mueller-hearing-3-j-620x317 Michael Flynn’s Legal Team Throws Down the Gauntlet strzok Robert Mueller Politics plea deal Michael Flynn mccabe lying Judge Sullivan Hiding Evidence Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story FBI doj corruption comey

Former special counsel Robert Mueller listens to committee members give their opening remarks before he testifies before the House Intelligence Committee hearing on his report on Russian election interference, on Capitol Hill, in Washington, Wednesday, July 24, 2019. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

The case of Michael Flynn’s plea deal, which he made after being strong armed by Robert Mueller’s virtuous troop, continues to drag out. This time, Flynn’s lawyers are back in court and they are going hard at the DOJ’s conduct.

As the Washington Examiner Reports, Flynn’s legal team is presenting their case to the presiding judge that the DOJ continues to hide evidence that could exonerate Flynn.

Mike Flynn’s attorneys said the government is hiding evidence that could help President Trump’s former national security adviser.

Sidney Powell, the head of Flynn’s new legal team, claimed in court Tuesday the Justice Department withheld evidence related to Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Comey, Flynn’s FBI interview notes, and more.

“There never would’ve been a plea to begin with” if Flynn knew how much information DOJ was hiding, Powell said. Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 for lying to investigators about conversations with the Russian ambassador.

Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, who is presiding over the case, gave Powell an unusual amount of leeway as she argued the government withheld information from her client to pressure him into accepting a guilty plea, which he never would’ve done had he been aware of all the facts. Flynn’s sentencing has been delayed for a year as he cooperated with the government.

When you look at how Flynn was entrapped, it’s obvious the FBI/DOJ are hiding something here and want to save face. We know Flynn did nothing illegal by participating in the phone call with the Russian Ambassador during the 2016 transition period. We know the agents who interviewed Flynn did not think he was lying. We also know Flynn was strung along by Andrew McCabe and James Comey, who presented the interview as just a friendly chat, without revealing he was under any kind of investigation.

But more things are being exposed now. Namely, that the DOJ knew Flynn had not violated the Logan Act, but still used it to threaten and force him into a plea deal.

She claimed documentation exists that shows then-FBI deputy director McCabe ruled out Logan Act charges against Flynn in January or February of 2017, yet DOJ “egregiously” held the possibility of being charged under the 18th-century statute over his head during plea negotiations anyway.

Powell said the defense still hadn’t been given access to all the interview notes from Flynn’s discussions with FBI agents, including one written by agent Joe Pientka that the government claims it no longer has.

I can hear the rebuttals now. “Well, it’s his fault for taking the plea.” Nonsense. When you have Robert Mueller, with unlimited resources, bringing the entire weight of the federal government down on your head and financially destroying you, you take the plea to the lesser charge. There’s also been much talk that Mueller threatned to go after Flynn’s son as well.

None of this happened on the up and up. Mueller wanted a scalp and Flynn was one of the few he could take while still bandying a “Russian collusion” story line, even though the phone call itself turned out to be nothing.

For the DOJ’s part, they argue they did give Flynn the text messages in question.

Brandon Van Grack, formerly of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team who now heads up DOJ’s FARA unit, told the judge that “following the court’s standing Brady order has always been the guideline the government has pursued.” The prosecutor said that, before Flynn’s plea deal, Flynn had been made aware of the Strzok-Page texts “before the public knew they existed.”

“The government has never alleged that Mr. Flynn was an agent of Russia,” Van Grack said. “He pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about particular issues related to Russia, not about being an agent of Russia.”

Again, this is nonsense. Flynn only pleaded out because the government were threatening him (and his son) with FARA and Logan Act violations. Now the DOJ wants to claim they were never worried about Flynn being a Russian agent. That’s some serious spin by the government. You can’t use something to beat someone into a decision and then claim that something was never relevant to the decision being made. Of course it’s relevant, going all the way back to whether Flynn had all the information necessary to make the right choice on taking the plea deal.

This kind of game playing by the DOJ and Mueller is exactly why no one trusts these agencies anymore. If Flynn had evidence hidden from him, the plea should be vacated. As it stands though, it doesn’t appear Judge Sullivan, who’s more than shown his bias in this case, wants to do that. Instead, the more likely scenario here is that Flynn isn’t sentenced to any jail time.

A Gen Z’er Schools You Slobs: You’ve Been Hurting Women’s Brains by Using This Common – and Terrible – Term (Video)

Westlake Legal Group people-2590593_1280-620x413 A Gen Z’er Schools You Slobs: You’ve Been Hurting Women’s Brains by Using This Common – and Terrible – Term (Video) Women woke Uncategorized The Sexes Speech Social Justice patriarchy nowthis language guys Gender Issues Front Page Stories foluke tuakli democrats Culture Allow Media Exception

 

 

Hey guys — I mean, zhes, here’s something you need to know: It’s inconsiderate to use the term “guys” when addressing a group that includes females.

So says NowThis producer Foluké Tuakli.

The energetic instructor points out that using the word ignores its “cognitive impact on women.”

Wait a minute — I thought there’s no such thing as male and female.

If I spent some time analyzing it, I believe I could come up with at least 3 or 4 different evolutionary tracks the social far Left is simultaneously traveling in the handling of the sexes, all of which contradict one another.

Anyway, in a new NowThis video, Foluké — who was 20 years old in 2016 — explains:

“‘Guys’ is a simple term. It could mean boys; or if you’re modern, hip, it means people.”

Modern and hip? Aw, girl, people’ve been using that term for at least several decades.

There’s nothing more winceworthy — and ubiquitous on the web as of late, it seems — than a young whippersnapper inadvertently revealing their punishingly insufficient historical perspective beyond the popularity of the Twilight saga.

But it’s okay, Foluké — I used to think my generation invented the F word.

Moving on:

“At first glance, ‘guys’ seems inviting, friendly, maybe warm, even comedic at times.”

Comedic?

“But it, like many default terms, should not be normalized as an all-encompassing phrase, innocent as it may seem.”

Too late, gal. It was normalized a long, long time ago. Catch up. Watch some 80’s movies. Maybe a few featuring the two Coreys. Or check out Growing Pains — you know, your parents’ jams.

In fact, hold your ears, Foluké–



The truth is, all you people have never taken a deep look. So the new generation’s here to woke you up:

“While we may understand the word means no real harm, with a deeper look you’ll understand that we’ve been ignoring the cognitive impact on women, as well as gender non-conforming folks by only explicitly addressing the male-identifying individuals present.”

Cognitive! You’ve been messing with chicks’ minds, ya shallow-lookin’ cavemen. Not to mention people who aren’t men or women or anything at all.

Let’s peer even deeper — Foluké lays out the heritage of your atrocious He-Man usage.

From The Daily Wire:

Tuakli then turns to the derivation of the word, asserting, “The meaning of ‘guys’ has changed over time.” She refers to a Washington Post article that quoted an etymologist saying the word derived from Guy Fawkes, who joined the failed 1605 failed Gunpowder plot and narrowly escaped being executed on the scaffold by jumping and breaking his neck. She then turns to The Boston Globe, which she says “broadened the term to include creepy people, then to a generic term for men.”

Oy.

According to our young and spunky guide — whether you realized it or not — all this time, you slobs have been making women downright uncomfortable:

“For decades, we have set a standard of only addressing the men in the room. Of course we claim it’s colloquial, but with our elevated knowledge and inclusive perspective, it just seems lazy, inconsiderate, and a small part of what reinforces the gender hierarchy today … Can we surprised that for decades, women felt uncomfortable asserting their voice when we didnt even take the time to properly acknowledge them?”

Take note: The woke are living on a different plane — one of elevated knowledge. No word yet on how they intend to be inclusive of people who use the term “guys.”

No matter, listen up: Feminists have a lot of work to do, and they don’t need you adding to the pile with your “guys” talk.

Take it away, Foluké:

“[We have to deal with] reproductive rights, rape culture, violence against women, LGBTQ rights, and the general reprogramming of most people’s minds. But when you stop valuing the personhood and visibility of individuals, you make it easier to dehumanize them on a macro scale, minimizing his, her, its, their right to respect and equality.”

Reprogramming. Most people’s minds.

That is a heavy burden.

She wants you to “know that this is one small step away from making a more conscious effort to dismantle the patriarchy.”

Foluké does make one point that’s inarguable: The word “gals” isn’t in common usage in the same way:

“Don’t believe me? Try walking into a room full of cisgender, heterosexual men and triumphantly announce, ‘Hey gals,’ ‘Okay, girls,’ ‘Thanks, Sis!’ I’m sure within ten minutes, if not seconds, at least one person will correct you.”

All of you women who are reading this, take particular note. Sit down for a minute. NowThis has a message for you.

Aw, who am I kidding? There’s no such thing as a woman reader of RedState. That’s why “women’s rights” exclusively just means left-wing causes.

Ain’t none of you guys black either — everybody knows that those who favor smaller government are exclusively white, male, and racist. #Patriarchy #Morons

Anyway, just for kicks, here’s how Foluké wraps it up for the cisgender females in the house:

“You can say that all of this is silly or too PC, but there are always larger societal implications of language — the way we use it and weaponize it. Face it: The way we do and say things matter. So if you do nothing else, repeat after me: I am powerful.”

If you’re powerful, then why are you hurt by people using the word “guys”?

Guess I’m just not looking deep enough. The gospel’s the gospel. Pass it on to some girl you (might?) know.

Actually, I really do agree with Foluké — I’ve never used the term “guys” to refer to a group.

Where I come from, we say “y’all.”

Who knew — the hicks were woke all along.

Think about it, you guys.

Canadian Sean Tagert was the father of an 11-year-old son. He suffered from ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and ultimately required around the clock, in-home care. When government health officials from Canada’s “Medicare” system refused to provide the level of care Tagert needed, he opted for assisted suicide.

Tagert passed away on August 6, 2019.

Every American who believes we should move to universal health care, such as the UK’s National Health Service or Canada’s Medicare should read Tagert’s story.

Is this really the health care system that Americans aspire to?

Life News reported:

Mr Tagert suffered from Motor Neurone Disease (MND) which is known in Canada as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). His illness reduced his ability to move his body, eat or speak, however his mental awareness remained unaffected. Doctors recommended 24-hour in-home care to support Mr Tagert.

However, Vancouver Coastal Health, initially only offered Mr Tagert 15.5 hours of care a day, which was then raised to 20 hours a day, meaning that Mr Tagert was forced to pay $263.50 a day for the remaining care that he needed to survive.

According to Grandin Media, on social media, Mr. Tagert wrote a status which explained that two Vancouver Coastal Health officials visited his home and confirmed that they were cutting funding for his already inadequate care hours.

After receiving this news Mr. Tagert wrote a number of devastating social media status’s which read: “So last Friday I officially submitted my medically assisted death paperwork, with lawyers and doctors, everything is in proper order. It’s been a month since I submitted my appeal to the Vancouver Coastal Health patient care quality department. They didn’t even respond….Welcome to the great Canadian healthcare system.”

Mr Tagert was killed by assisted suicide on August 6th.

Canada is home to some of the world’s most sinister euthanasia and assisted suicide laws, as even those without a terminal illness or those suffering from a mental illness are eligible to be killed by a medically assisted death.

Since Canada legalised euthanasia in 2016, there have been at least 6,749 cases of medically assisted deaths, with over 803 dead in the first 6 months of legalisation. 2018 saw Canada’s euthanasia figures soar with over 3000 Canadians killed by their doctor.

Currently, euthanasia and assisted suicide are illegal in the UK. However, one day a British politician, Lord Falconer, issued a report which recommended the legalization of assisted suicide. A ComRes poll, conducted by CARE, showed that nearly 50% of respondents believe it “would pressure the vulnerable into ending their lives.”

CARE’s CEO, Nola Leach, said:

The last thing we should be contemplating – especially at a time of economic hardship – is changing our laws so that those with a terminal illness, who believe they are a burden, are more likely to feel pressured into ending their lives. This, however, despite all the talk about safeguards, is the real danger presented by the Falconer Report also published today.
