    Don’t you hate it when your honest clarification question is mistaken for the start of a fallacious argument? Almost every time in the last year I’ve talked with pro-choice students at a pro-life outreach, I’ve had an exchange that goes something like this: Pro-Choice Student: The fetus isn’t even a person. Tim: We agreed earlier that a newborn is a person. Do you think a fetus is a person right before birth? Pro-Choice Student: *sigh* I know where you’re going with this, you’re going to try to trap me by asking if it’s a person right before that, or right...

    American journalists are partly to blame for the recent racist shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, because they continue to perpetuate the old southern racist myth that black Americans are a separate “race” from white Americans. Journalists seem to support the “one drop rule” or “part black all black”. For example, they continue to refer to Asian ancestry golfer Tiger Woods as “African American” even though his mother has Asian and Dutch ancestry and his father has Asian, European and North American ancestry as well as African ancestry. These racist journalists even refer to a child who has a black parent...

    In my previous post I discussed the possibility of bribery being involved in the selection of the so called courage award for the actor formerly known as Bruce Jenner. I had planned to ask in this post if Disney might have ordered ESPN to give the award to Jenner because it was thinking about a movie deal with him to take advantage of his previous association with the popular Kardashians. Then I discovered that Disney had premiered its own reality show about a man becoming a woman called “Becoming Us” at the same time as the Vanity Fair article and...

    I’m not accusing anyone of bribing ESPN or its employees at this point. I’m just looking for a logical explanation for giving the wealthy actor formerly known as Bruce Jenner an award for courage for a decision that required no special courage because the decision is going to make him even richer. I also want an explanation for why ESPN which is owned by ABC is going out of its way to promote a program on the E! Network which is owned by NBC. A bribe is a logical possibility considering Jenner’s purported wealth and the tendency of many rich...

    The issue of infanticide following an abortion is very real — and statistics from the United States and Canada show hundreds of babies are left to die after they are born alive following a failed abortion. The issue is not isolated to North America, as a pro-life legal group in Europe is standing up for these babies. On June 23, the Council of Europe will decide on the admissibility of the Petition Against Neonatal Infanticide signed by over 200,000 people, who asked it to reaffirm the right to life and to the care of babies surviving their abortion. These children...

    Those who talk about the Second Iraq War, The WMD War, seem to have forgotten that the war began during Bill Clinton’s administration rather than George W. Bush’s administration. Clinton began the war late in 1998 either because he didn’t think Saddam Hussein was adequately cooperating with U.N. weapons inspectors or to distract attention from his impeachment.

    ESPN has damaged the credibility of the Arthur Ashe “ESPY” Courage Award by planning to give the award to reality show actor Bruce Jenner for what appears to be nothing more than an elaborate publicity stunt. Jenner claims he’s now a female character called “Caitlyn” but admits he hasn’t had, and doesn’t plan to have, an operation to change his body from male to female....I might let him get away with this farce if there weren’t much better qualified candidates for the award.

    The pro-choice movement coined the term “reproductive health” to promote contraception and ever-more-questionable methods to end pre-born lives worldwide. Far from empowering women, abortion has created a multifaceted marketplace that profits from killing the defenseless and using a woman’s body during pregnancy. Globally, the health and safety of women is being threatened by a corrupt industry that exploits them and devalues human life. Detailed research reveals five emerging issues that pose immediate risks to women during maternity. 1.

It’s as simple as that,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and co-author of the book Abortion Free. “We have worked in Ohio on a number of projects in cooperation with local leaders that, in part, contributed to this decline.” While some refuse to acknowledge that abortion clinic closures contribute to lower abortion numbers, Newman explains that the evidence...

    I’ve been there. I was 17, drugged and raped. When I learned I was pregnant, my family, counselors, and doctors took control. They intended the best. They wanted to help me. And even though there are literally no studies showing any benefit from abortion, they had total confidence in the social myth that abortion is the best option, even the only option, in cases of sexual assault. Even many pro-lifers approve of abortions in cases of rape. So surely it must be the best choice, right? Not in my case. It just added more layers of trauma, self-doubt, grief and...

    “We stand with CEC for Life, Life Legal Defense Foundation, Operation Rescue and the National Black Prolife Coalition in demanding that the Alabama Department of Public Health investigate the Central Alabama Women’s Clinic in Selma for suspected violations of abortion regulations. “The ongoing efforts to address the civil rights of babies in the womb, while ensuring the health and safety of their mothers, the dignity of their fathers, families and their communities are all in keeping with the civil rights struggle of the 20th century which once escalated on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in demonstrations led by Dr. Martin Luther...

    I'm not a fan of Governor Sam Brownback, but four more years of Brownback is preferable to four years of someone who is as out of touch with reality as Paul Davis is Davis talks about Brownback's cuts in education spending, but seems totally unaware of the fact those cuts have been restored. He pledges to restore the cuts that have already been restored. He and his supporters don't understand economics. They talk about Kansas job creation rate as if that was the most important measure of the state's economy. Kansas unemployment is only 4.8% which many economists consider within...

    Increasingly even many Democrats are recognizing that the American ship of state is foundering. It's Captain seems out of touch with reality. The Captain may be stressed out or the problem may be more serious. The American people are losing confidence in President Barack Obama's leadership. Movie Director Michael Moore says Obama has only one accomplishment. "100 years from now: 'He was the first black American that got elected president.' And that's it." Republican voters are increasingly vocal in their calls for impeachment. There is a less divisive way of dealing with a situation in which a president is out...
  • If No Democrat Senate Candidate, I'll Vote for Roberts

    I had been looking forward to the opportunity to vote for an Independent candidate for U.S. Senate. I often vote for "third party" candidates because the two 19th Century major parties are out of touch with reality. For example, I voted for Ross Perot in 1992 and Ralph Nader in 2000. Chad Taylor's withdrawal as the Democrat's Senate candidate provides strong evidence that Sen. Pat Roberts is probably correct when he says Greg Orman is really just a Democrat masquerading as an Independent. Chad Taylor apparently filed for the Senate nomination to keep serious Democrats from running for the office....
  • Are Redskins Ashamed of Their Complexion?

    I'm attempting to understand why some of the descendants of the people Christopher Columbus called "Indians" say they are ashamed to be called "redskins". The only explanation I can think of is they are ashamed that they are not white or perhaps they are simply ashamed of their heritage. In the 1950's many black Americans were ashamed of their color. They tried to bleach their skin and straighten their hair to look more like white people. In the early sixties someone discovered a statement abolitionist John Sweat Rock had made a century earlier. Rock said, "black is beautiful". Many black...

    Alveda King, the niece of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr., spoke at National Right to Life’s Prayer breakfast on June 27th. King is the Director of the African American Outreach for Priests for Life, and their mission is to activate pro-life leaders who will expose the disproportionate amount of black babies killed by the abortion industry. Abortion ends the life of more African Americans than all other causes of death combined, including accidents, cancer, AIDS and violent crimes. In 2008 alone, abortion killed 363,705 African American babies. Although Black Americans only represent 12.6% of the U.S. population, they...
  • "Native Americans" a Much Worse Term than "Redskins"

    The white hypocrites who complain about the term "redskins" use the term "native American" which when used in the way they are using it isn't much better than the other n-word. The word "redskins" is a physically descriptive term that doesn't have inherently negative characteristics. The word is one of the English translations of the Ottawa term "Oklahoma". If we consider the characteristics of the people the term "redskins" was first applied to, it's a positive term. The word "native" has two different uses. In general use the term "native " followed by a geographic region is used to indicate...

    An ambulance as called to the Venice Women’s Health Center in Port Charlotte, Florida, last week to transport an abortion patient to the hospital for emergency care. The patient, who was described as a Caucasian woman in her early 30′s, was removed from the abortion clinic completely covered with a blanket on June 3, 2014. Pro-life activists who witnessed the incident told Operation Rescue that one of the emergency medical technicians who responded to the abortion business’ call for emergency assistance indicated that the patient was going to be “okay.” azima“Certainly there are degrees of ‘okay’ and this doesn’t negate...

    The NBA's handling of the Donald Sterling controversy has a definite odor to it and it's not from sweaty socks. In April, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver decided that the NBA was above the law and thus didn't have to obey laws that interfered in the NBA's decisions. In its haste to get rid of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling the NBA violated a California law that prohibits use of statements made in secret private recordings as a basis of punishment for an individual. On April 25, TMZ released a secretly made illegal recordimng of an argument between Sterling and...

    The Cuyahoga Medical Examiner’s Office ruled today that a young woman died from complications due to a legal abortion she obtained at a Cleveland abortion clinic earlier this year. Wilson, 22, died as the result of a heart attack suffered immediately after she underwent a therapeutic abortion. The full autopsy report is not yet available, according to the statement. This confirms the information released to LifeNews by Operation Rescue, which has released two videos featuring 911 call recordings showing a pattern of botched abortions at Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, where Lakisha Wilson suffered a fatal abortion. “After we...
