Pro-Abortion Groups Excited Joe Biden Would Force Americans to Fund Abortions

(LifeNews) Taxpayer funding for abortions always has been hugely unpopular with Americans. But pro-abortion groups see an opportunity to push their radical agenda on the American people in Joe Biden.

On Monday, The Hill ran a piece highlighting pro-abortion groups’ hopes that Biden will work to end the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to fund elective abortions if he wins the White House.

Though polls consistently show strong opposition to taxpayer-funded abortions, a growing number of Democrat leaders are embracing the position, Biden among them. Last year, he abandoned his long-standing support of the Hyde Amendment and promised to force taxpayers to fund abortions if elected.  (Read More)

Opting out of public school this fall? Legislators won’t help your transition

(Idaho Freedom Foundation) Legislative leaders have summarily decided to shut down any talk of expanding school choice options for the upcoming academic year. The reason? They claim there’s not enough time to consider school choice options. Thus, Idaho schoolchildren, parents, and teachers will likely find themselves stuck with public schools that aren’t handling Covid-19 the way anyone wants or needs.

The real reason more options won’t be made available: Lawmakers prefer to kneel at the altar of the education cartels.  (Read More)

In the months leading up to the Democratic National Convention, more than 260 conservative users on Facebook and Twitter had their posts about Biden scrubbed from the social media platforms.

Where Black Lives Matter Rioters Learned To Call Looting ‘Reparations’

(The Federalist) In Chicago this summer, Black Lives Matter protesters have repeatedly called for committing crimes as vengeance for claimed racial injustice. A few days ago, marchers in Millennium Park unfurled huge banners, one of which proclaimed “loot it all back.”

After widespread looting in the city as part of ongoing civil unrest accompanied by a crime wave, on Aug. 11 local Black Lives Matter leader Ariel Atkins openly defended looting as “reparations,” according to local outlets.

After 100 looters were arrested and 13 police officers injured by mobs on a protest-enabled crime spree, she said this: “I don’t care if somebody decides to loot a Gucci’s or a Macy’s or a Nike because that makes sure that that person eats. That makes sure that that person has clothes. That’s a reparation,” Atkins said. “Anything they want to take, take it, because these businesses have insurance.”  (Read More)

Reminder: Critical race theory isn’t scriptural

(OneNewsNow) A former news and religion reporter with more than 25 years of Christian broadcasting experience says accusing the evangelical Church of being steeped in white supremacy is just some evangelical leaders’ way of trying to be relevant in today’s “woke” culture.

The accusation comes from evangelical illuminati like author and Wheaton professor Ed Stetzer and Southern Baptist Convention President J.D. Greear. They accuse the evangelical Church of being blind to rampant systemic racism in its midst.  (Read More)

Common Core No More?

(Madison Liberty) If we are not careful, we will miss the chance to rid Idaho of Common Core.

Earlier this year, the joint Idaho House and Senate Education Committee voted to replace Common Core in schools. Common Core standards, also called the Idaho Content Standards, are expensive and ineffective. These standards were promoted as a way to improve K-12 education in Idaho, however, Idaho students have shown no significant improvement in educational outcomes since the adoption of the Common Core beginning in 2011.

Among other concerns, many parents have expressed frustration about the confusing way that Common Core math is taught, and experts across the nation have warned about Common Core’s lack of early phonics instruction.  (Read More)

The Ongoing and Intensifying Persecution of Christians in India

(Breakpoint) In late July, the body of Pastor Balvinder Bagicha Bhatti was found on the side of the road in the Indian state of Punjab. Returning from a nearby village after a visit to a church member’s home, Bhatti was found beaten and bloodied, with tattered clothes and scraped shoes. The additional set of bloody footprints led his family to believe that he had been assaulted. Local police, despite the evidence of foul play, registered the case as an accidental death.

Bhatti isn’t the first Christian pastor in India to die under suspicious circumstances.  (Read More)

10 takeaways from #EvangelicalsForTrump

(OneNewsNow) 1. Silence is not an option. We can no longer hide behind the excuse, “I don’t want to get involved.” As citizens, we are given the privilege, for now, to place people in positions of leadership. Whether we like it or not, we are involved. Millions are not registered to vote, and millions of registered voters stay at home. We’ll stand in line to see a movie, but we won’t stand in line to vote and elect leaders who will affect the direction of our country. This makes a statement about what we value—and isn’t it sad.  (Read More)

Public School Teachers Openly Fear Parents Overhearing the Leftist Brainwashing During Virtual Classroom Sessions

(RedState)Leftist teachers aren’t happy that you can now hear them programming your child with social justice ideology.

The left owns our public education system due to years of infiltration, coercion, and strong-arming. They’ve apparently become so comfortable and cocky in the position that they’re now openly complaining that you’ll now be able to hear their attempts at brainwashing your children.

Apparently, you being involved in what your child learns bothers these teachers.  (Read More)

Idahoans: Act today to oppose Covid-19 immunity legislation

(Idaho Freedom Foundation) Idahoans should promptly tell lawmakers and Gov. Brad Little to reject a civil liability proposal that is expected to become the centerpiece of a special legislative session planned for the week of Aug. 24. The proposal would basically allow the government to do whatever it wants in the event of a disaster or emergency declared by the governor. Public servants would have virtual carte blanche for their actions, without fear of legal reprisal.

Equally alarming, the proposal says businesses and private individuals would be blessed with immunity from civil lawsuits unless they fail “to make a good faith effort to comply with a statute, rule or lawful order of a government entity” in effect at the time.  (Read More)

How Forced Isolation Makes Huge Power Grabs Possible

(The Federalist) Social isolation has always been the primary weapon in the totalitarian arsenal. Tyrants know how to manipulate the primal human terror of isolation through threats of defamation, firings, and worse.

Pick a dictator, any dictator—Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, Jim Jones (dictator of his own realm)—and you’ll find a common pattern of imposing aloneness and the terror of it on their prey. You can probably name more examples from the world stage as well as from smaller domains. They may vary in their methods and territories, but all use social pressure to live out the ancient principle of divide-and-conquer.  (Read More)

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris: The Most Pro-Abortion Ticket in American History

(LifeNews) The pick is in and pro-abortion California Senator Kamala Harris is Joe Biden’s running mate. And for leading pro-life groups, the pairing is the most pro-abortion presidential ticket in American history.

American Life League president Judie Brown told that “the Democratic Party that has been on the wrong side of every social justice question from slavery to segregation, from its support for Planned Parenthood to its support for Massive Resistance. With the nomination of Biden and Kamala Harris, it is once again on the wrong side of the babies.”

“With the announcement of Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s running mate, we now have the most pro-abortion ticket in American history,” Brown explained.  (Read More)

Fact Check: Yes, the Mob Is Coming For You

(Creators) In June, America’s mass media propaganda machine endangered the public by spreading insidious “disinformation” — while purporting to debunk “disinformation.”

The New York Times, NBC News, CNN and the Associated Press converged nine weeks ago to persuade readers and viewers that neither antifa rioters nor Black Lives Matter militants were fanning out from major urban areas into flyover country. Law enforcement bulletins and citizen alerts about the metastasis of violent demonstrations all amount to “misinformation,” “bad information,” “false information,” “unfounded rumors” and “conspiratorial content,” the Gray Lady scoffed.  (Read More)

Christian college confronts Antifa’s threat to damage, remove cross

(OneNewsNow) After Antifa activists threatened to damage and remove a cross at a private Christian college in Oregon – claiming it is a racist symbol – the school took a bold stand against the radical left group, including prayer and armed guards.

The cross – which school officials say represents “hope and unconditional love from our heavenly Father” – has been prominently displayed on the New Hope Christian College campus in Eugene, Oregon, since the 1990s, and it was stressed that the structure has no connection with racism.  (Read More)

More Than 300 Female Athletes, Olympians Urge NCAA To Protect Women’s Sports

(The Federalist) More than 300 high-profile female athletes signed a letter released Wednesday asking the National College Athletic Association Board of Governors to preserve a “fair and level playing field” for women’s sports.

“True athletic parity for women demands that women’s sports be protected for biological females,” the letter said. “Protecting the integrity of women’s sports has, for decades, played an integral role in remedying past discrimination against women and empowering them to achieve their full athletic potential.”

The letter urges the NCAA not to boycott Idaho over passing the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, which requires students to compete in sports based on their biological sex. (Read More)

‘Silent shepherds’ sending subliminal messages

(OneNewsNow) An evangelical leader is reminding pastors that there are consequences for failing to preach on the issues of the day.

Dr. James Kennedy Ministries recently polled listeners, viewers, and donors on how they feel about the Church, pastors, and major issues like abortion, religious liberty, poverty, and sexual identity.

“There’s a lot of frustration in the pews over what I call the silent shepherds,” relays the ministry’s president, Dr. Frank Wright. “While they agree that the scriptures speak to every area of life’s human endeavor, they don’t generally preach about those things.” (Read More)

Assembly Considers Bill to Let Midwives Do Abortions Without Doctor Supervision

(California Family Council) In 2013, California lowered the health safety standards for women by letting non-physicians, including nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified nurse-midwives do first-trimester surgical and medical abortions.

State legislators are at it again this year with the introduction of SB 1237, a bill to remove the requirement that certified nurse-midwives be directly supervised by a doctor. 

The bill, authored by Senator Bill Dodd (D) Napa, has already passed the State Senate and is scheduled for a hearing before the Assembly Business and Professions Committee next Monday, August 7.  (Read More)

State Dept Lists Communist China Among Worst Human Sex Trafficking Offenders — Sexual Slavery

(CNSNews) July 30 was the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, a day of awareness for sex trafficking around the world.

To emphasize the subject, the Women’s Rights Without Frontiers organization noted that Communist China is ranked among the world’s worst offenders in sex trafficking by the U.S. State Department.

China has “an insatiable market for sexual slavery, but China also is a major purveyor of sexual slavery around the world,” said Reggie Littlejohn, president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, in a press release. (Read More)

Amazon Prime Cancels “Babies Are Still Murdered Here”

(Free The States) The anti-abortion documentary Babies Are Still Murdered Here, which had been available to Amazon Prime users since November of 2019, was removed from the streaming service on July 20.

In a live video on the End Abortion Now Facebook page, Babies Are Still Murdered Here Director Marcus Pittman expressed frustration with Amazon, making reference to the recent Congressional hearing where tech leaders including Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos testified that the company does not make content decisions based on political ideology: “The big tech executives were just meeting before Congress this week talking about all this sort of stuff.

An Open-Air Prison No One Can Escape

(FRC) In the campaign against people of faith, there is no line the Chinese government won’t cross.

Earlier today, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo testified at a congressional hearing, highlighting the Trump administration’s efforts to stop China’s human rights violations and international aggression in its tracks.

Proud of the administration’s track record, Pompeo stated, “No administration, Republican or Democrat, has been as aggressive in confronting China’s malign actions as President Trump’s… We’ve sanctioned Chinese leaders for their brutality in Xinjiang, imposed export controls on companies supporting it, and warned U.S. companies against using slave labor in their supply chains.

Vegas and SCOTUS: Strange Bet Fellows

(FRC) If there’s one thing Americans have learned from the Supreme Court in 2020, it’s this: there are no guarantees.

Even now, after a slew of bad decisions, conservatives wanted to believe that when it comes to religious liberty, even Chief Justice John Roberts couldn’t get that wrong. Well, think again. When it comes to siding with the Constitution, even Vegas will tell you — don’t bet on Roberts.

Even by the Left’s estimation, Friday’s case was cut and dried. When Nevada’s governor, Steve Sisolak (D) decided to open casinos to thousands of people — but cap church attendance at 50 — the lawsuit almost wrote itself. (Read More)
