Mass Shootings Thoughts And Prayers

Mass Shootings Thoughts and Prayers — The wishing of “thoughts and prayers” after  mass shootings is being mocked in some circles as simplistic to the point of being meaningless.

We have come to agree.

In fact, we think it as simplistic, meaningless and ineffective to wish “thoughts and prayers” as it is to blame access to guns  for the tragedies as is done in the same knee-jerk fashion by those who mock the wishing of “thoughts and prayers.”

In the 1980s, most states made it difficult for a private citizen to carry a hand gun. Gun rights activist made it an issue and today it is relatively easy to do so. The murder rate has been halved and sometimes in dramatic fashion.

This is what the activists predicted while their opponents loudly claimed things would get much worse.

So now we have the issue of mass shootings which have become a several-times a year occurrence.

Those who desire to disarm the sane and law-abiding cynically use them to advance their political cause.

We, however, think it is far more about culture than it is about having access to immaterial objects.

We have written several times about how school shootings started after abortion was declared a right. Correlation is not causation but correlations are something worth pointing out, and this correlation makes sense.

Teach that it is up to the individual to determine whether a human life exists, and, well, who is to judge if an individual chooses in a way other than you would?

How about the manner in which our society addresses the most important philosophical question: Why are we here?

We teach our young that our existence is but due to a mere sequence of random events. Our courts, in fact, forbid teaching that we are designed, despite the quite  reasonable inference of it being so.

Imagine someone being on a moral fence and being inculcated by society that he is but an accident of nature and he should “do as thy will”. Now, imagine that someone being inculcated that he was created to love his neighbor. Which message is most likely to send him to the good side of the fence?

We grant that even the right cultural message isn’t going to completely solve the problem. Limiting access to guns (and knives and cars) for those with objective psychological problems is important. Maybe this requires bringing back mental institutions.

Still, the Vegas and synagogue murderers would have passed the filter for sanity. The wise realize that perfect safety is a chimera, and that is why the sane and law-abiding need access to guns.

Black Abortion Billboard Red Pill

Black Abortion Billboard Red PillBlack Abortion Billboard Red Pill — Every now and then some crazy rumor pops up in Black neighborhoods about a White establishment plot to wipe out the Black race and the rumor is believed without question.

Meanwhile someone rents a billboard and promotes a policy baldly declaring a goal of depopulating those with dark skin and shoulders get shrugged. Hey, social justice. The renter is progressive.

Blacks make up about 12 percent of the population of the United States but have 39 precent of abortions. If you are a Black person shouldn’t that make you go hmmmm? Did you ever see a billboard saying White women take care of your families by having an abortion?

Yes, the abortion movement was started and remains motivated by racism. It is safe to say that while not everyone who supports Planned Parenthood is a racist, all racists support Planned Parenthood and unrestricted abortion.

If you are Black, the billboard pictured above placed by the Afiya Center outside Dallas last summer should be more than enough of a “red pill” to make you understand that those Bible-clinging folk out in the sticks who think abortion is bad regardless of skin color; who defend the 2nd Amendment and understand full-well it includes Blacks; and think  parents should have the power to pull their kids out of bad schools are actually your friends.

#Walkaway please.

Pre Roe Abortion Deaths Were Rare

Pre Roe v Wade Abortion Deaths Were Rare — Sen Dianne Feinstein appeared to claim  in this morning’s (Sept. 5) question of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that between 200,000 and a million women died of illegal abortions in the 1950s and 1960s before a cynical Supreme Court declared it a right in 1973.

If we heard her right she is laughably wrong. There were about 300 deaths due to botch abortions per year in the 1950s which were brought down to less than 200 per year by 1965 due to advances in medicine.

To keep it in perspective, 658 persons died in boating accidents last year.

Was Reggie Up In Polls Before Pro Life Fed Backstab?

Was Reggie Up In Polls Before Pro Life Fed Backstab?Was Reggie Up In Polls Before Pro Life Fed Backstab? — John Haenn’s June 4 interview with Dr. John Huyette regarding the 165th Pennsylvania House District Republican Primary is available as a podcast and can be accessed below.

Haenn hosts WFYL’s Our Time radio show. Huyette reveals to him that non-endorsed challenger Regina Scheerer was likely ahead in the polls until incumbent Alex Charlton radically changed his position regarding abortion — or claimed to anyway — and received an opportune endorsement from the opportunistic Pennsylvania Pro Life Federation.

Huyette also reveals that Mrs. Scheerer had campaigned with Charlton in 2016.

Abortion School Shooting Connection Reprise

Abortion School Shooting Connection Reprise — Another school shooting occurred a few hours ago, this time at Santa Fe High School outside of Houston, Tx. At least eight are reported dead.

This sort of thing doesn’t happen as frequently in Europe some will note. 

That Europe teaches a respect for life that we don’t, will not be noted.

We will again reprise our article regarding the abortion-school shooting connection that we first ran Oct. 2, 2015.

There have been 24 U.S. school shootings by our count of the list at Wikipedia involving five or more injuries or deaths since Anthony F. Barbaro shot passersby at random from a window at Olean (N.Y.) High School in 1974 killing three and wounding 11.

That, of course, has  changed.There had been school massacres before, notably the University of Texas shootings by Charles Whitman in 1966 and the bizarre Bath Schooldisaster in 1927 in which a demonic school official spent months planting bombs in the building to maximize tragedy, but otherwise the violence was targeted and personal.

Yesterday (Oct. 1), an anti-Christian named Chris Harper-Mercer murdered nine — or 11 depending on the source — students at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore., and wounded several others. Before the killing Harper-Mercer asked his victims their religion. Those who said “Christian” he shot in the head. Those who said otherwise he shot in the leg.

So what has caused this change in society? Was it access to guns? Access to guns were arguably easier before 1974 especially for youths. Barbaro was on his school’s rifle team.

So no, it is not access to guns.

What has changed, though, is our culture.

Our respect for life has disappeared.

We tell young men that protecting the innocent is no longer something they should aspire to do.

We have powerful people in government, media and academia shrug their shoulder at revelations of the weak and helpless being harvested for body parts. It’s worse than that actually. The actively defend the organization that does such monstrous things, and insist it be rewarded with public money.

We have state officials protecting mass murder if it is politically fashionable.

It isn’t a coincidence that the school shooting epidemic didn’t start until after our Supreme Court declared abortion to be a “right”.

We start holding once again that the existence of God is an axiom, and that we have individual rights granted by our Creator, and that the rest of us have an obligation to protect the rights of others, especially those that can’t defend themselves, the epidemic will end.

If we continue the path we are now on, things are going to get a lot worse.

Pro Life Group Endorsed Charlton After All LOL

Pro Life Group Endorsed Charlton After All LOL
The Charlton endorsement letter sent by Pennsylvania Pro Life Federation to its donors in Pennsylvania’s 165th District.

Pro Life Group Endorsed Charlton After All LOL — Yesterday (May 12), we questioned whether the Pennsylvania Pro Life Federation actually endorsed incumbent State Rep. Alex Charlton in the May 15 GOP Primary.

Our suspicion stemmed from a May 12 email forwarded to us from Federation legislative director Maria Gallagher in which she said  I never used the word endorse in connection with Rep. Charlton and that I never spoke with Senator McGarrigle who implied that it had in a constituent letter.

Well bake the potatoes black, it most certainly has endorsed the man who couldn’t vote to limit abortions to 20 weeks and only scrambled to get some kind of pro life creds after he realized he had a serious primary challenger.

And it did so in a seriously sneaky fashion. A letter — signed by Ms. Gallagher — was sent May 7 to the local pro life activists that had worked for or contributed to the group, and only to them.

She said in bold, underline print I am writing to let you know that it is important to vote to re-elected Alex Charlton as State Representative in the Republican Primary on Tuesday, May 15 and, in bold print It is vital we stand with Alex Charlton on Tuesday May 15 and Make sure that you go to the polls on Tuesday, May 15 and vote for Alex and Encourage your friends, relatives and neighbors to go out vote for Alex Charlton on Tuesday, May 15.

That’s not an endorsement? LOL.

The letter is included in this article as a jpg file.

Ms. Gallagher correctly points out that the likely Democrat will be a more extremist pro abort than Charlton. She fails, however, to point out that this person is not running in the GOP primary and that Charlton’s opponent Regina Scheerer — who is not just a sincere supporter of protecting the helpless but will also be a fighter against cronyism and corruption and inflated school construction costs — has as good a chance of winning the general,  actually we think better, than Charlton.

For the record, the entire civilized world bans abortions at 18 weeks or less with most of them banning abortions at 12 weeks.

Pro Life Group Endorsed Charlton After All LOL

Alex Charlton Pro Life Endorsement Untrue?

Alex Charlton Pro Life Endorsement Untrue? — A controversy has erupted as to whether Alex Charlton is being supported by the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation as is being claimed in his campaign literature.

Charlton is the incumbent representative for the 165th District in the Pennsylvania House. He is facing retired math teacher and Springfield resident Regina Scheerer in Tuesday’s (May 15) primary election.

Charlton has angered many activists for his strange opposition to mild bills that would curtail the cronyism rampant in this state. What really inspired Mrs. Scheerer’s campaign, however, was a meeting she attended by several persons including Father Anthony J. Costa, who is pastor of Saint Francis of Assisi Church  and Father John Gabin who is pastor of Holy Cross Church, both in Springfield, to discuss Charlton’s Dec. 12 vote against SB 3 .

SB 3 would have limited abortions in Pennsylvania to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy rather than the existing 24. Liberal Sweden bans them at 18 weeks while most of the rest of Western Europe bans them at 12 weeks.

Charlton was only one of six House Republicans to vote against the bill which passed both chambers but was vetoed by Gov. Wolf.

At the meeting, Charlton reportedly defended his vote with vigor saying he does not know where life begins and that dismemberment abortions are not the norm.

With Mrs. Scheerer’s campaign, however, Charlton has been claiming to be pro life and defender of the “vulnerable”. He  cites his vote for HB 2050 which would “prohibit the abortion of any child solely due to a diagnosis of possible Down Syndrome.

That vote, however, was cast on April 16 long after Mrs. Scheerer received 900 signatures to get on the ballot much of it due to Charlton’s position on abortion and some observe that the qualifier “solely” arguably makes the bill meaningless.

Anyway, last week, Charlton again strongly promoted a claim of being pro life. A constituent letter from State Sen. Tom McGarrigle, his former boss, specifically cited Charlton as being “supported” by the influential Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.

Those  affiliated with Mrs. Scheerer’s campaign have said they have been in contact with the group’s legislative director Maria Gallagher, who, they say, claimed never to have spoken with McGarrigle and that her group has not endorsed Charlton.

An email has been sent to Ms. Gallagher for clarification and we await.

Charlton Opponent Submits 900 Signatures

Charlton Opponent Submits 900 Signatures
Regina Scheerer, retired teacher

Charlton Opponent Submits 900 Signatures — Regina Scheerer, the retired teacher who is taking on incumbent State Rep. Alex Charlton, delivered nominating petitions containing nearly 900 signatures, Friday, to the  Pennsylvania Bureau of Commissions, Elections and Legislation.

Only 300 signatures are needed.

Unless there are some bizarrely major issues (shenanigans), expect to see Mrs. Scheerer’s name on the ballot for the May 15 Republican Primary.

Charlton was elected to represent Pennsylvania’s 165th District in 2016 replacing long-time incumbent Bill Adolph.

Since then, he has time and again poked his constituents in the eye. He has opposed commonsense reforms aimed at curtailing vote fraud. He has endeavored to maintain the corrupt system that lets money be automatically deducted from the paychecks of public employees to pay for politicking. This politicking often involves supporting things that the employee opposes.

He has refused to fight for pension reform. Did you know that there is someone in this state getting a $477,591 public pension for which you are on the hook? Alex certainly should.

Alex has avoided the fight to abolish the Prevailing Wage mandate which could  shave $25 million off the price of the $125 million Springfield High School project. Why does Alex want to inflict this burden on his elderly neighbors living on fixed incomes?

The final straw for Mrs. Scheerer, though, came Dec. 12 when Alex voted against limiting abortions to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy rather than the existing 24. He was one of six Republicans to do so. Civilized people understand that failing to protect weak and helpless life lead to nihilism and despair. Most of Western Europe bans abortion — with some strict exceptions — at 12 weeks.  Note, this would be 12 weeks gestational age which would be about nine weeks after conception.

Even hip, progressive Sweden and Norway ban them at 18 weeks gestational age.

Alex, however, who ran as a pro-lifer, thinks that’s too oppressive.

The 165th District has 63, 769 residents as of 2011 and consists of Morton Borough;  Springfield Township except for the 2nd precinct of the 3rd Ward; Marple Township except for the 5th Ward; and the 4th and 6th wards of Radnor Township along with 1st Precinct of the 1st Ward, the 1st Precinct of the 3rd Ward and the 2nd Precinct of the 5th Ward.

For the record, Mrs. Scheerer says she will not take the legislative  pension.

School Shooting Abortion Connection

School Shooting Abortion Connection — A few hours ago a demented person shot numerous people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. and as of yet we don’t know how many dead or what set this person off.

Before the usual suspects start blaming the gun rather than the human being who pulled the trigger, we’d like to run this column originally published Oct. 2, 2015 after the killings at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore.

Culture matters. People are guided by the music they hear, the movies they watch and pronouncements of social leaders, who for several decades have been saying the taking of life was just an individual choice that we may not judge.

There have been 24 U.S. school shootings by our count of the list at Wikipedia involving five or more injuries or deaths since Anthony F. Barbaro shot passersby at random from a window at Olean (N.Y.) High School in 1974 killing three and wounding 11.

Gale Makes Planned Parenthood Shriek With Fear

Gale Makes Planned Parenthood Shriek With Fear
Thank you Joe Gale

Gale Makes Planned Parenthood Shriek With Fear — Montgomery County Republican Commissioner Joe Gale is under fire from the usual suspects for his unwavering criticism of Planned Parenthood.

Criticizing Planned Parenthood should be about as controversial as criticizing the Ku Klux Klan, but leave that aside.

And leave aside the organization’s history in defending statutory rape and even sex trafficking.

And leave aside how it nonchalantly sought to profit from the sale of body parts left after abortions.

Planned Parenthood is ineffective at decreasing teen sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancies. Actually, there is pretty good evidence that it makes things worse despite what one might hear from the group’s apologists.

Ask yourself why can’t a school district handle sex and health education itself? And while you are asking yourself that, ask how much Planned Parenthood is getting in tax money for its school-based clinics. The organization makes a whole lot of people very nice livings.

The Jewish word for Hell is Gehenna. The name comes from a small valley in Jerusalem were children were sacrificed in fire.

Just something to remember.
