“According to the CDC, the number one killer of children between 1-14 are accidents — vehicular, suffocation, and drowning,” he writes. “Twice as many kids under 12 died in cars than from guns. Also, if these studies began at birth rather than starting at one, the leading killer of all children would be diseases and genetic abnormalities.”
Harsanyi further notes that the studies cited by America’s answer to TASS count 18 and 19-year-olds as “children.”
This further inflates an already inflated count.
“When you take 18- and 19-year-old adults out of the equation, the number of gun-related deaths among kids plummets considerably,” he says.
He also points out that if one starts counting at fetal viability late-term abortion is by far the leading cause of death among the young. He says that — more than 8,000 viable unborn are killed annually with and probably more than 50,000 after 15 weeks.
Hey soccer moms, ask yourselves why so many traditional media sources would so unashamedly distort the data.
Delco Voting Issues Aired On Face The Culture — Discussed on last night’s (April 26) Face the Culture with Kim Kennedy and Pastor Stephen Gruen were the crusade by Robert Mancini to learn obtain certain public records and Delaware County, Pa.’s peculiar quest to keep them from him.
Mancini won a judgement from Pennsylvania’s Office of Open Records which Delco is appealing to Common Pleas Court.
Access to these things should be considered routine and uncontroversial. That the county is fighting raises unfortunate questions.
Also discussed with guest Greg Stenstrom, was the victory won by himself and Leah Hoopes in which Commonwealth Court has agreed to hear their appeal of case by Delaware County Common Pleas Court that county election officials destroyed or are hiding evidence that the 2020 election was stolen.
He noted that Leah and himself will have to resubmit the documentation as the court initially rejected the appeal.
Greg also noted that his social media platform Patriot.Online is gaining readers and influence.
Tucker Carlson Heritage Speech; Historic, Ironic, Scary And Hopeful — Tucker Carlson addressed the Heritage Foundation, April 21, hours after his last show with Fox News and three days before the suits fired him despite his being the most-watched cable newsman.
“The most likely outcome is the most ironic outcome,” he said in the short discussion with Heritage President Kevin Roberts that ended his appearance.
He was quoting Elon Musk whom he just interviewed.
The hit-you-in-the gut part of Tucker’s talk come about half-way through when he starts talking about abortion and transgender surgery.
“Policy papers don’t account for it at all,” he said. “If you have people who are saying ‘I have an idea, let’s castrate the next generation; let’s sexually mutilate children’, I’m sorry that’s not a political debate . . . What’s the outcome we are desiring here? An androgynous population? . . . I don’t think that anyone could defend that as a positive outcome.”
He points out though that the weight of the government and a lot of corporate interests are behind that.
“What is that?” he says. “Well, it’s irrational.”
He said he understood the traditional debate regarding abortion i.e. sometimes it might be necessary vs protecting life.
“But if you are telling me abortion is a positive good, what are you saying? Well, you are arguing for child sacrifice. . . When the treasury secretary stands up and says ‘You know what you can do to help economy? Get an abortion’ that’s like an Aztec principle,” he said.
“What’s the point of child sacrifice? Well, there’s no policy goal entwined with that. That’s a theological phenomenon . . . none of this makes sense in conventional political terms. When people, or crowds of people or the largest crowd of people of all, which is the federal government, the largest human organization in human history, decide that the goal is to destroy things . . . which you’re watching is not a political movement, it’s evil.
He explained that humanity has always had an understanding of good and evil.
“Good is characterized by order, calmness, tranquility, peace, lack of conflict, cleanliness . . . and evil is characterized by their opposites, violence, hate, disorder, division, disorganization, and filth,” he said. “If you are all in on the things that produce the latter basket of outcomes, what you’re really advocating for is evil.”
Tucker’s quote regarding irony concerned how the the internet was causing ignorance.
“The core promise of the internet was as much information as we’ve ever had at your fingertips and the result has been the centralization of information –deliberate . . . but unnoticed by most people — (that) results in more controlled information that we could even have imagined 20 years ago,” he said.
“So a lot of information just is not available because it’s digital and it’s controlled by a small number of companies. Polling suggests that a lot of Americans — and I don’t mean hundreds but hundreds of millions of Americans – have no idea what’s going on. They don’t know the facts about certain things. It’s not because they are dumb or distracted on their iPhone. The whole point of the iPhone was to inform you and the net effect has been people completely ignorant of the . . . non-disputed facts about a lot of different things and you saw this certainly during Covid. That challenges the idea of democracy which rests of the notion of an informed voting public.”
Tucker said to save non-digital media like books because they can’t be revised by Big Brother. He said to prioritize the tangible, especially personal relationships.
“As the world becomes more digitized and people live in this . . . realm that’s disconnected to physical reality, I think the only way to stay sane is to cling more tightly to the things that you can smell. I’ve gotten to the point where if I can’t smell it, I’m not dealing with it and that includes books.”
Tucker encouraged all Americans to pray for their country for 10 minutes a day.
Dominion Answers Would Have Been Found If Fox Fought — Fox, showing the courage for which corporate America is known, caved in its court case with Dominion Voting Systems confessing it told lies about the company after the 2020 election and paying it $787 million to avoid a $1.6 billion settlement.
One would have thought they would have at least gone to trial simply to keep their cred which would be higher with a fighting loss rather than rolling over.
One would have thought that even with a defeat in a jury trial they sill had numerous paths to appeal as Dominion would presumably fall under the public figure/public official standard created by New York Times vs Sullivan .
If the company that runs our elections is not a public official what exactly is?
Further, if Fox showed some spine it could have perhaps compelled Dominion officials to answer the questions they refused to take from the Pennsylvania Senate.
Further, the could have queried them about their strident opposition to software audits such as one they one they squelched in Fulton County, Pa.
And maybe they could have even brought up how Fulton County, itself, is suing Dominion. They could have maybe worked into the debate the findings of Wake Technology ServicesInc. concerning Dominion machines.
The opposition to audits is obvious grounds for suspicion.
Cowardice is going to kill this country.
And regardless of whether the suspicions are grounded or that Dominion is evil or any other similar thought lurking in the minds of millions of Americans, why are we using private machines for our elections? Why does the intellectual property of corporations take precedence over election transparency?
Demand answers to these questions starting with your committeeman and take it all the way to the governor.
Carmela To Again Challenge John Lawrence — Carmela Ciliberti announced on her March 28 podcast that she will take another shot at knocking do-nothing State Rep. John Lawrence from his comfortable perch in Pennsylvania’s 13th House District in the 2024 Republican Primary.
The rest of the extremely educational broadcast concerned the importance of voting and being involved; not getting discouraged by succumbing to the lie of the “lesser of two evils is still evil”; how neither party is particularly interested in serving the people; and explained how elections work in Pennsylvania from the local to the national level.
Living Costs Expected To Grow In Pennsylvania — Carmerla Ciliberti’s latest podcast includes the dire warning that tax hikes are coming to Pennsylvania and life is going to get harder for Pennsylvanians.
Gov. Josh Shapiro promised these policies in last week’s budget address and Carmela doesn’t see the useless drones int the State House and Senate stopping them.
“Politicians from both sides of the aisle are more than happy to confiscate individual and corporate earnings to grow government bureaucracy,” she said.
The constitutionally required but still oft-ignored deadline for passing the budget is June 30.
Misanthropic ICD Gambit Used To Advance Tyranny –Kim Kennedy and Pastor Steve Gruen hosted on Wednesday’s Face the Culture Leah Hoopes, Gregory Stenstrom and Bill Lawrence of this site.
Discussed were lawfare; Tucker Carlson’s revelations regarding Jan. 6; and Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer’s dismissal of a complaint filed by Leah and Greg concerning unlawful behavior by election officials.
Stollsteimer said in a May 4 letter to County Council that the complaint was based on just three internet videos that had been “materially edited”. It was a shameless thing to say as Greg and Leah had submitted 37 video files along with audio ones none of which came from the web but from whistleblower Regina Miller.
Also discussed was Dominion Voting Systems use of lawsuits to silence critics. Other media outlets fail to wonder why Dominion is so strident in its opposition to audit of its machines. They also fail to ask why proprietary software should be used in election systems in the first place. It wouldn’t be hard to write open-source, publicly owned code. How many are aware that Dominion officials refused to testify before the Pennsylvania Senate shortly after the 2020 election?
Greg, who refers to those behind this as “misanthropes” i.e. “haters of humanity”, noted that they are skilled in the strategy of ICD which means “isolate, contain, destroy” and said they are trying to to this to Carlson. He explained they are seeking to isolate him from support, contain his message and then ultimately destroy him.
He said the response is CER or connect, engage and restore. This doesn’t mean attacking the ICD users but to support the subject of their attack. It also means to engage in a substantive discussion of what they are trying to suppress.
Democrat Sexual Assault Hypocrisy –Carmela Ciliberti in her latest podcast reveals how convenience is the standard for Democrats regarding sexual assault.
She explains how the allegation that State Rep. Mike Zabel (D-163) aggressively groped lobbyist Andi Perez during a private meeting in 2019 was covered up by the party leadership. This especially included then uber-woke Caucus Chair and now uber-woke House Speaker Joanna E. McClinton.
Oh, Ms. Perez says her employer, the uber-woke Service Employees International Union, also tried to protect Zabel.
We wonder when the saga of Montco Councilman and Josh Shapiro protege Ken Lawrence will bubble into the public discourse. As uncouth as running one’s hand down the naked leg of a woman at a business meeting might be, it pales to roofies and rape.
Sex Abuse SOL Change Equals School Tax Hike— Carmela Ciliberti’s latest podcast is an excellent lesson in State House proceedings, along with an easily understood explanation of the foolishness of a redundant amendment to the State Constitution suspending the statute of limitations from sex abuse for civil cases concerning sexual assaults for two years.
There is already no statute of limitations for criminals sexual assaults, and the statute of limitations for civil cases ends when the victim turns 55.
Juries in civil cases do not require their verdict to be “beyond a reasonable a reasonable doubt” to rule for the plaintiff, nor do they have to be unanimous.
This makes it likely that an innocent party will pay to make things go away hence enriching a mercenary lawyer uninterested in truth and justice.
She noted that when a similar law was passed in New York, four the the state’s eight Catholic dioceses filed for bankruptcy protection, along with the Boy Scouts of America.
If the problem is really this bad — and we don’t think it is as uncapped damages let the few evil destroy the much good — civil suits are not how to solve it. Remember, there is rightfully no statute of limitation for criminal cases.
There are Catholic haters who might celebrate the proposed amendment. For them we’d like to note that it is expected that this legislation will cost the public schools, for which you are on the hook, will be between $5 billion and $35 billion.
If you can’t defend yourself you will pay the Danegeld.
There are heroes who will fight such as Cardinal George Pell but they aren’t on your local school board. Pell, by the way, spent 13-months in solitary confinement as he neared his 80th birthday. Further, his appellant victory was no sure thing.
Carmela also notes an equally foolish state law is proposed to do the same thing.
She also calls to task House Speaker Mark Rozzi (D-126) for holding a special session. This kept the House from addressing more immediate matters such as the East Palestine chemical disaster just over the Ohio border.
