  • Keep Hate Alive!

    02/21/2019 9:36:35 AM PST · by jazusamo · 4 replies ^ | February 21, 2019 | Sheriff David Clarke (Ret.)
    Race provocateur extraordinaire Jesse Jackson made famous a slogan in his run for the Presidency in 1988. It was Keep Hope Alive. Thirty years later the American Left has replaced the word hope with another four letter h-word: hate. They hate Republicans, they hate white male conservatives, they hate Trump, they hate the unborn, they hate the American flag, and they hate the police. The Left sees so much potential in using hate as a political weapon that they have built a hate industrial complex. If they don’t keep hate alive, the bottom of their identity politics strategy collapses. Enough...
  • 12 quotes from St. Peter Damian(1000 years ago, on homosexuality amongst the clergy)

    The following 12 quotes come from the writings of St. Peter Damian, a great ascetic and monk who was especially troubled by the clergy and religious of his time who failed in their duties, especially celibacy. Think of them as a year of monthly intentions for the US bishops to meditate upon in reparation for the Scandal: “Tell us, you unmanly and effeminate man, what do you seek in another male that you do not find in yourself?” “For God’s sake, why do you damnable sodomites pursue the heights of ecclesiastical dignity with such fiery ambition?” “By what right or...

    Exclusive: Scott Lively believes effort to 'decriminalize homosexuality' is misguided President Trump has put his conservative base in a terrible situation by allowing openly homosexual U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to lead a campaign to “decriminalize homosexuality” around the world. This gut-punch of a news story is being spun as a response to Iran’s recent execution of a homosexual man. While I believe I speak for most conservatives in saying I do not condone that execution, or capital punishment for any sexual crimes anywhere, I believe the Iran incident is simply a pretext for perpetuating the “All-In” Obama doctrine...
  • Trump’s Plan to Decriminalize Homosexuality Is an Old Racist Tactic

    The Trump administration is set to launch a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality in dozens of nations where anti-gay laws are still on the books, NBC News reported Monday. While on its surface, the move looks like an atypically benevolent decision by the Trump administration, the details of the campaign belie a different story. Rather than actually being about helping queer people around the world, the campaign looks more like another instance of the right using queer people as a pawn to amass power and enact its own agenda. It almost goes without saying but the Trump administration does not...

    BERLIN - The Trump administration is launching a global campaign to end the criminalization of homosexuality in dozens of nations where it's still illegal to be gay, U.S. officials tell NBC News, a bid aimed in part at denouncing Iran over its human rights record. U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, the highest-profile openly gay person in the Trump administration, is leading the effort, which kicks off Tuesday evening in Berlin. The U.S. embassy is flying in LGBT activists from across Europe for a strategy dinner to plan to push for decriminalization in places that still outlaw homosexuality - mostly...

    Students at Washington University in St. Louis have erased the “vagina” part of The Vagina Monologues — instead calling it The [Blank] Monologues — in order to be inclusive of other genitals. “In adapting this show to become more gender inclusive, this year’s audience members, regardless of how they identified, were able to more strongly connect with the impactful monologues,” stated a piece in the college newspaper, The Student Life. “Thirty performers spoke 20 different pieces, all centering around sexuality, sexual violence, body image and more.”

    An LGBT sporting group has cut its ties with tennis legend Martina Navratilova in a dispute over transgender sportswomen. The nine-time Wimbledon champion and LGBT campaigner was accused of being transphobic after saying that it was "cheating" to allow transgender women to compete in women's sport, and claimed they had a physical advantage. In an article for The Sunday Times, Navratilova wrote: "A man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organisation is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies...

    In heavily-plagiarized speech, Vatican spokesman accuses Archbishop Viganò of ‘lies’ CAMBRIDGE, England, February 15, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – A Vatican consultant and frequent English-language spokesman for the Vatican accused Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò of “lies” in a lecture in which he passed off other writers’ words as his own.  At a February 8 lecture at Cambridge University,  Fr. Thomas Rosica, executive director of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation, suggested Archbishop Viganò was a liar. Rosica, known for his pro-homosexual views, described the Vatican whistle-blowers' witness as a “diabolical masterpiece.”  Authors who Fr. Rosica plagiarized in that speech - often word-for-word and...

    Ontario’s attorney general is proceeding by direct indictment against a Christian activist charged with criminally inciting hatred against “the gay community.” Bill Whatcott, 52, was in court again Thursday to answer to the Criminal Code charge, which carries a punishment of up to two years in jail. Ontario Superior Court Justice Nancy Spies scheduled a judicial pre-trial — an in-chambers meeting to discuss trial procedure — for March 19. His lawyer, Daniel Santoro, is asking that Whatcott be tried by judge and jury. “My alleged crime is preaching the Gospel and sharing accurate information on the dangers of homosexuality at...

    A disturbing report from The Federalist details efforts by transgender activists to school the courts in how to deal with parents who refuse to transgender their young children.  In some cases, the courts have seized children whose parents refuse to recognize their child's "true" gender. Margot Cleveland of The Federalist talked to Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, who described "two waves" of this trend. "I first began hearing from distraught parents in this situation in 2016 and in 2017, I heard from seven families in as many different states in this situation.  In all but one case the...

    Chris Pratt is famously outspoken about his faith and like many Christians in the spotlight, he has had to endure criticism from both peers and press.Recently Chris was a guest on Colbert and he and host Stephen Colbert – also a fellow believer – were chatting about the Daniel Fast Chris is doing with his church, Hillsong LA. It was a very safe, non-offensive discussion, centered around basically eating a vegan, paleo diet.For some reason actress Ellen Page was triggered by this light-hearted discourse on legumes and sought to call Chris out on what was not being discussed but, in...

    On Thursday, the Health and Human Services committee of the South Dakota House killed a bill that would have protected the right of parents to refuse to consent to medical or psychological treatment for a child suffering from gender dysphoria if the treatment “would induce, confirm, or promote the child’s belief that the child’s sex or gender identity is different from the child’s sex presented at birth.” Proposed House Bill 1205 also provided that “no public authority or official of this state may take any adverse action against a parent for exercising this right.” That such a simple affirmation of...

    Suppose I declare that I am a king. Should you be required to address me as “Your Majesty”? You say, “Williams, that’s lunacy! You can’t prove such nonsense.” You’re wrong. It’s proved by my declaration. It’s no different from a person born with XY chromosomes declaring that he is a woman. The XY sex determination system is the sex determination system found in humans and most other mammals. Females typically have two of the same kind of sex chromosome (XX) and are called the homogametic sex. Males typically have two different kinds of sex chromosomes (XY) and are called the...

    A private secular K-8 school in Washington, D.C., was accused of having a double-standard as prominent Christian conservatives have spoken out against its plan to boycott basketball games held at the conservative Christian school where second lady Karen Pence works. According to a letter obtained by The American Conservative, the Sheridan School in Northwest recently informed parents that the schools’ basketball teams will no longer travel to take on Immanuel Christian School (ICS) in nearby Springfield, Virginia because of the institution’s policies pertaining to LGBT issues. The Sheridan School decision comes after ICS became the center of a media firestorm...

    New Jersey has become the second state in the nation after California to adopt a law that requires schools to teach about LGBT history in a move hailed by civil rights groups as a step toward inclusion and fairness. Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat who promised to promote equality for gay and transgender people during his campaign, signed the bill Thursday. Among those celebrating the news was Jaime Bruesehoff, of Vernon, whose 12-year-old transgender child Rebekah spoke in support of the bill in Trenton in December. “This bill is so important for our young people,” Bruesehoff said. “They need to...

    It might be a sign of the end-times, or simply a function of our currently scrambled politics, but earlier this week, four feminist activists — three from a self-described radical feminist organization Women’s Liberation Front — appeared on a panel at the Heritage Foundation. Together they argued that sex was fundamentally biological, and not socially constructed, and that there is a difference between women and trans women that needs to be respected. For this, they were given a rousing round of applause by the Trump supporters, religious-right members, natural law theorists, and conservative intellectuals who comprised much of the crowd....

    Conservatism is usually broken down into 3 tenets: Social/Moral Conservatism - Faith, family and time tested values. National Security Conservatism - Protection of the homeland Fiscal Conservatism - Expansion of the economy and protection of business and hopefully expansion of jobs. In 1996, Bob Dole correctly pointed out that this is also the order of importance. Simply put, if there are no morals, there will be no qualified defense and there will arise an untrained generation that cannot sustain an economy either (sound familiar?). By contrast, a moral society will have faith, be strong, look out for each other, care...
  • Lesbian Activist Faces Leftist Fury After 'Misgendering' a Male Rapist

    The LGBT community can't even escape the fury that comes with the incorrect use of gender pronouns. Julia Beck, a lesbian activist and former member of the LGBTQ Commission for the mayor of Baltimore, got in a “little trouble” after she called a male rapist “he” when "he" actually considered himself a transgendered woman. During a conservative discussion panel at the Heritage Foundation on Monday, Beck told the story she described as “unbelievable and absurd as it is common place.” “I got kicked off of the Baltimore mayor’s LGBTQ Commission as the only lesbian, simply for stating biological facts,” she...
