Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

Proverbs 3:5

A tragic loss

It was heartbreaking to see how many voters have fallen for the fuzzy euphemisms Democrats use to hide the reality of what abortion really is. In Tuesday’s elections, the sanctity of life took a tragic loss in several states.

Democrats no longer even pretend to want abortion kept “safe, legal and rare.” They’ve now pushed their willingness to slaughter babies in the womb to a level that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. Imagine the Governor of a once-great state like California actually being proud that he’s now helped make it legal to murder a child in the womb right up through what would have been the day of its birth.

The next frontier is to kill babies even after they’ve been born. And Montana voters shockingly advanced that idea by voting 52.4% to 47.6% against a bill that would have required doctors to provide medical care for babies born alive at any point in a pregnancy, including during a “botched” abortion (an abortion is considered “botched” if the patient survives.)

Pro-life activists called it “unimaginable” and a “dark, horrific day.” Defense attorney and conservative commentator Marina Medvin pointed out that the law requires police to give medical care to criminals who shoot at them, and society to give medical care to serial killers in prison, but a majority of Montana voters just okayed denying medical care to innocent babies and letting them die on an operating table.  

Some tried to excuse Montana voters, claiming they were misled and didn’t understand the bill. I don’t know how much clearer it could have been, or how hard it is to figure out. 

I warned for years that if Roe v. Wade was ever overturned, it would not be the end of the fight for life, but only a new beginning. The pro-abortion movement has made it clear that they will use lies and even violence to push their anti-life obsession that has gone beyond a political or spiritual disagreement into the realm of promoting sheer evil. We have to do a better job of winning hearts and minds, and luckily, we also have science on our side.

In an age in which contraceptives are cheap or free and readily available, there isn’t even a pretext of a justification for late term abortion. And letting babies that have already been born die is not “choice” or “reproduction health care,” it’s straight-up murder. Polls show that most Americans, even those who oppose abortion bans, still want restrictions on abortion, and I would hope they also want restrictions on outright murder. We have to do a better job of letting them know that the Democrats are using lies, fear and hysteria to convince them to vote for things that they would be horrified to know they were allowing if the left wasn’t doing such a good job of hiding the truth.

For an example of how it’s done, God bless the voters who just approved making these nine cities sanctuary cities for the unborn.

Here’s more evidence that Gov. Ron DeSantis is now a top contender for the GOP Presidential nomination

A CBS drama show already slimed him with false accusations. Welcome to Trump World, Ron!

Scratch that

Kudos to Independent Senate candidate Evan McMullin, who in conceding to Sen. Mike Lee showed the world how to lose with grace, dignity and honor. Oh, wait a minute! Scratch that…

Must-See Video

Last night, Tucker Carlson of Fox News interviewed Chloe Cole, who as a young teen thought she was “trans.”

Her parents took her to doctors whom they trusted to help her. They misled and pressured her to take puberty blocking hormones at 13 and undergo a double mastectomy billed as “gender-affirming surgery” at 15. At 16, she’s now “detransitioning,” but has been left traumatized, “devastated” and physically mutilated. She doesn’t know if she’ll ever be able to have children now.

Chloe says that what happened to her was horrible, but what’s worse is that it’s spreading and happening to children all over the world. Fortunately, some nations in Europe, such as the UK, are finally waking up to this twisted quackery and retreating from it. Bless her for speaking out, and I hope you’ll join me in praying for her to recover from the physical, psychological and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of these conscienceless quacks.

It’s the responsibility of adults to protect children from having to make decisions that have repercussions they don’t understand because they’re children. They’re not guinea pigs for a political agenda. Chloe summed up this issue in one sentence better than any “trans” activist I’ve ever heard:

"I made an adult decision as a child."


The IRS had a good year

Hey, all you people who turned out to vote for Democrats on Tuesday because they told you it was a vote for “choice” and “democracy”: here’s what they didn’t tell you you were voting for.

The Government Accountability Office reports that under the Democrat-controlled Congress, the enforcement budget for the IRS skyrocketed by 919%, from $5 billion to $51 billion. That helped the tax agency “boost government revenues” by a trillion dollars in the last fiscal year. Good, they made those greedy corporations pay their “fair share,” right? Uh, no: 88% of that extra trillion bucks was extracted from individual taxpayers…like you.

If the IRS did that well last year, imagine how much blood they’ll be able to squeeze from your stones once they have 87,000 new tax agents and auditors! I’ll bet some of you are quietly praying for the Republicans to win back Congress now, aren’t you?


Twitter user growth is exploding

Leftist celebrities might be abandoning Twitter -- and I’m curious to see how long they can go without that regular bong hit of praise and attention -- but user growth is exploding without them (you mean people DON’T come to Twitter because they love unhinged leftist rants from Deborah Messing?) Those who have remained or come back say the platform is already much more enjoyable since Elon Musk fired half the staff and is cracking the whip on the rest of them.

Far from becoming a fount of “hatred and racism,” with all those woke-scold censors gone or ordered to do actual work, Twitter is starting to be fun again. Users have even noticed that the “trending topics” are no longer just leftwing news and comments but things that regular people actually find to be fun and interesting.

It’s also refreshing that Musk invites users to tell him their complaints and ideas for making Twitter better, and personally responds and does something about them, as opposed to censoring them. For instance, they seem to have opened his eyes to the fact that his head of “Trust and Safety” was actually a screaming leftist who colluded with the government to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, and he’s now out the door!

I hate to quote myself, at least so soon, but as I said just yesterday in praising Gov. DeSantis for firing the people who were mucking up Florida’s election process, “That’s a good lesson in what can be accomplished if you fire the right people.”


Biden: Arrogant and Clueless

As is his wont, President Biden stunned a lot of people with his clueless arrogance Wednesday when he brushed off any looming investigations of his son Hunter, scoffing, “Good luck with that,” and branding it “almost comedy.”

Well, law professor Jonathan Turley doesn’t find it so amusing. He describes Hunter’s laptop as “Washington’s Pandora’s Box,” and predicts that if the GOP House opens it up to investigate, what will come pouring out for exposure is Washington’s “cottage industry of influence peddling.” 

Personally, I can’t wait. That racket has needed to be exposed and shut down for a long time. Office holders should be serving the people, not deep-pocket lobbyists. Speaking as a former office holder who had to go to work to earn money after leaving politics, I have always been incredibly curious about how all these dedicated public servants who spend decades in jobs that pay in the low six figures somehow manage to retire as multi-millionaires.

When they’re done with Hunter’s laptop, how about looking into the Clinton Foundation, and all those massive foreign contributions that mysteriously dried up once it was certain Hillary wasn’t going to be President? I still recall during the 2016 election, when Hillary blasted Trump for making his dirty fortune in the private sector, building things that people needed, like hotels and apartments, and creating thousands of jobs, while her family proudly devoted their lives to “public service.” If I recall correctly, I believe the combined fortunes of Hillary and Bill at that time were estimated at around $120 million, aside from their Foundation’s bulging coffers. I can assure you, being Governor of Arkansas didn’t pay nearly that much.

    Those same people that believed the the Big Lie being told by Biden and his fellow Democrats are about to hit those same right in the face. One week from today there is a possible Nation-wide Railway Strike. Winter has arrived and the lack of adequate natural gas and heating oil and gasoline will just drive up the price. Joe's comment on closing all the coal driven energy plants in the near future. So same people will find out when they wake to a cold house and their electric vehicle did not recharge last night and the streets are still snowed due to the snow plows could not come out.
    But Joe and the fools in Washington living their fantasyland environment will not able to figure what that sound and where is the Capital and FBI and other security people are running the other way to save their own lives. Due there will be a revolution in the neat future.

    The party of democrats is so powerful that the national demise that is occurring in the country today just can’t be stopped the GOP is complicit or just a Mirage. The student loan forgiveness act was brilliant to attract free money for young voters the pay not to work programs are brilliant for all the welfare recipients our hobo population on our streets keeps what might have been citizens that may have been a part of an American dream however they are part of Americas nightmare today men and women will not join our military even with its standards have lowered to be led by a commander in chief that would allow them to be murdered with weapons that the chief gave them oh well the traitor in chief today is brilliant using the power of the Oval Office to destroy the USA if the the future of the USA lies with the GOP I got many bridges to sell leading to nowhere

    Thank you for being someone who has common sense, and speaks up. If Mitch McConnell, Kevin and Ronna step down, I only have a recommendation for a three possible candidates to replace Mitch. I think Ted Cruz, Joshua Hawley, or Tom Cotton would all do a good job.
    Just my 2 cents.
    Oh and I was pleased to see John James win in Michigan ( I think #10 ).

    The 'Flash Flags' being instilled by the Media and the Administration to get rid of Trump are horrendous. Trump has the HAMMER & could well Drain the Swamp as President in 2024. DeSantis is too Green to handle the job at this time in his career. It is a great disservice to this country to break away from Trump. I have no intention of doing so. Shame on those who supposedly supported Trump and now see him as baggage. They don't have a clue of the damage they are creating for our future. MYPOV............God Bless.

    Biden is clueless about a lot of things, mostly because his memory and reasoning power are failing, but I don’t think he is clueless about Hunter and the corruption. This has been going on too long, but he has gotten away with it. He has no reason to think that he or Hunter will suffer any consequences. He knows he is protected and he knows that he is supported one way or the other, mostly by TDS on steroids.

    While I appreciate Trumps policies, and beLieve he knows how to run things, he needs to back off and not run. An announcement that he is running will hand the the Georgia run off to the .Dems. Lets see if Trump really wants the good of the country or to polish his ego. He is just too controversial. I honestly believe TDS is the reason there was not a wave. Mr. President, give the younger people the opportunity. They have learned from you. It’s time to park it and enjoy retirement from politics.
