  • Pelosi: GOP Attacks Me Because They Are ‘Against Poor Children’

    03/16/2018 5:45:28 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 35 replies
    Thursday at her weekly press briefing, Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said GOP attacks against her leadership during congressional races were due to Republicans being opposed to her hometown San Francisco, LGBT and “poor children.” On Democrat Conor Lamb’s victory, Pelosi said, “So it was a very issues-oriented campaign. As part of it, was millions of dollars that’s coming in from the Koch brothers, and that will happen all over the country, demonizing me as the leader of the Democratic Party. I just wanted him to win. I don’t think that really had that much impact on the race....

    South Carolina's largest school district says it's going to reprimand several hundred students who participated in a national walkout to protest gun violence at schools. Greenville County Schools spokeswoman Beth Brotherton said Wednesday that students who participated in the walkout will be cited for cutting class. She said that school records show that about 530 students participated at about a dozen high schools.

    My husband and I managed to raise six children on a very limited income, (as I was a stay at home Mom for 15 years), sending them to private Catholic schools for twelve years. Now we enjoy watching them do the same with our 13 grandchildren. What is disheartening, however, is how today's children are being systematically exposed to issues we parents never had to contend with raising our own decades ago. Is it liberalism or just plain evil that's taking away the innocence of childhood? Why on earth should kindergarten curricula include lessons on gender reassignments or anything to...

    With all the chaos going on in this country after the Parkland, Fla. massacre, and the gun control push by the Parkland children, the mainstream media, and the Russia probe, if Republicans retain control of the Senate and House in November and add governorships and state legislative seats, do you see the teenagers and liberals acting up after the election, protesting on the streets again?

    A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday in favor of 21 children and young adults suing the U.S. government for not doing enough to protect their constitutional right to a stable climate. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals judges refused to grant mandamus relief and block the U.S. District Court in Oregon from hearing the suit, which was originally filed by the environmental group Our Children’s Trust in 2015. A federal judge in Oregon ruled in 2016 the 21 youngsters had standing to sue. President Donald Trump’s administration and oil and gas groups appealed the decision in June 2017. They asked...

    In recent years, society has focused more on issues affecting girls and women than on those related to boys and men. But now, in all 63 of the largest developed nations, boys are falling behind girls in all academic subjects – especially the biggest predictors of success, reading and writing, in their mental health (depression, suicides), physical health (lower sperm counts), IQ, ability to create friends, and so on.Dr. Warren Farrell, who has written extensively on men and family, just released a book with co-author John Gray, the bestselling author of Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus. The Boy...

    The Nauseating, Obscene Hypocrisy of the Left Regarding Children By Bryan Fischer For the left, it’s all about the children. At least, that’s what they want you to think. But my assessment is that they simply use children to shamelessly advance their regressive agenda. They try to bludgeon us into silence by accusing us of hating children if we disagree with them. The reality, I suspect, is the other way round. I believe it is the left that does not truly care about children. Children are simply a manipulative tool they can use to bulldoze Americans into accepting their radical...

    The advocates of disarming the American people have always used emotional arguments to pass legislation before calm and rational discussion can take place. It is used for two reasons. It has worked in the past and it subverts an honest discussion. When there is an honest discussion on the merits, Second Amendment supporters win. A standard ploy, so common it has become a joke is: "Its for the children". This is used for every possible policy prescription. It is the standard call, and has become meaningless, because anything and everything can be construed as "for the children". Now the...

    Five survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida blamed Gov. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and all politicians who accept money from the National Rifle Association (NRA). During an interview with CNN anchor Victor Blackwell, student Cameron Kasky called Rubio and Scott “enablers” who are responsible for those who died or were injured, and the families who have been hurt.

    Just when we think there is no deeper sewer into which America’s corrupt political system can descend, we finally see the first promising signs of resistance and redemption emerging from the debris. And for that, we can thank 19-year-old Florida high school senior Emma Gonzalez and her teenage friends, as well as U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigative team. Because of them, this has actually been an inspiring and hopeful seven days — perhaps even historic — in spite of the non-stop drama that keeps swirling around the Trump presidency.

    For all of those who are angry about the Parkland attack and those before it, and who insist that the experiences of the newly minted child-activists for rescinding the Second Amendment require us to do what they demand, ask yourselves: ... Do I want my rights decided by what children feel? Being a victim and being young do not make one nobler or smarter than he was before he was attacked. ... Victimhood does not create virtue or wisdom, but it does cause rage and emotion among those cultivated to default to feelings.

    While Americans try to cope with the losses in Florida, they're saying goodbye to someone else: America's pastor, Billy Graham. Never has our nation so desperately needed to hear the message of hope and healing that the 99-year-old spent his life sharing. So surely, it's no earthly coincidence that even in Reverend Graham's death, he's forcing us to look in the one place where the answers to this heartbreak lie: up.Torn apart by grief and rage, Americans are frantic to know why our nation is unraveling in one act of violence after another.

    Shortened title. Full title: Parkland High School Teen Activist Says NRA Members Are Child Murderers – And If You Oppose Him You Hate Children Following the recent Parkland shooting, a number of “movements” and activist groups popped up, and the standout similarity across all of them is that they’re fronted by teenagers. ehind the teenagers, working as the string-pullers, are the same people behind the Women’s March. They are vehemently anti-gun, anti-American, and anti-Trump – this is part of their sales pitch. On March 14th, 2018, the largest of these groups, #Enough National School Walkout, is planning a 17-minute walk...

The protest also included students in Plantation, Florida, who showed up to school on their day off. The students called on each other for support and action while calling out adults for failing them. "I think it's really important that we come together now," said American Heritage junior Veronica Ritkes," since adults are not doing it for us."

    Tragically, no one's children will be safe at school as long as things stay that way The particulars about protecting innocents from mass murder at schools, concerts, marathons etc. are not part of FBI training. The horrific Valentine’s Day massacre that took the lives of 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, leaving 14 more injured, proves it.
