Cate Dyer bought baby parts

Remember the Center for Medical Progress, CMP? They were the folks who did some undercover video work and caught Planned Parenthood representatives negotiating prices for selling intact baby parts. For uncovering those illegalities, they got taken to court. The preliminary hearings are finally moving along, and there’s been a revelation in the witness testimony.

San Francisco has declared the NRA a “terrorist organization”. What does that make members of the NRA? And what other groups probably should be called that given San Fran’s standards. Well, now the NRA is fighting back.

Does Beto value human life?

Yet another large study reveals more issues of mental health among transgendered people. The researchers expect more but the magnitude shocked them. It should shock all of us. But which came first?

Beto O’Roarke was asked about the value of human life. Should be an easy question, but when it’s asked about a baby one day before he or she is born, things get dicey.

Little Sisters of the Poor

One listener, Russ Rooney, called in to the Voicemail Feedback Hotline with two topic suggestions. That’s what I talk about this time out.

He asks a question about cities that have declared themselves sanctuaries for illegal immigrants, yet have a huge homelessness problem. How can cities bring in more people when they are already failing their current residents?

The Little Sisters of the Poor, a group of nuns ministering the elderly poor, got a unanimous Supreme Court decision in their favor to have nothing to do with abortion coverage for their employees. But that’s apparently not good enough for 13 states and DC from suing the nuns separately.

Russ wrote a letter to the editor of 2 of his local papers to get this lawsuit some coverage because they are totally ignoring it, even though his state is joining in this lawsuit. Where’s the journalistic integrity? See below the show transcript for his letter.

Just one question

I’ve been discussing the abortion issue for quite some time. Back in the days before the Internet, people would use dial-up modems to call Bulletin Board Systems (BBSs) and have discussions there. One particular discussion about abortion there caused me to clarify my thoughts on the subject and distill the issue down to just one question.

Depending on how you answer that question (no matter how you answer it), it shows that all other questions and issues pale in comparison. In this episode I give you the question, why it matters, and why I answer it the way I do.

And note, not a single Bible will be thumped.

“Uplanned” opening eyes

The movie “Unplanned” is doing quite well across the country, given its limited release. It is bringing the truth of the abortion industry to everyone, including many Planned Parenthood employees. It’s truly eye-opening and I recommend this exposé to anyone interested in the truth about abortion.

This episode I’ve got a new segment, “Letters from Auntie M”. It’s being voiced by a friend of mine from the Shire Network News days, the pseudonymous “Tom Paine”. For this segment, Auntie M talks about anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party.

The crisis on the border is real

Colleges and universities are supposedly where free speech and association are encouraged. Well, I have an example of where the students were all for those until they realized that it meant freedom for everyone, and there were some groups for whom they simply couldn’t allow that.

The Border Patrol has its hands full, literally. The detention centers and courts that process illegal immigrants are not able to handle the surge of people coming across the border. But hey, it’s not like it’s a crisis or anything.

And, oh yes, kittens.

Enjoying Democrat privilege

Listener Mark has a better suggestion than the REINS Act for reducing the tentacles of the bureaucratic state; scrap it.

Have you noticed a difference in how Democrats and the media treat similar scandals regarding the two parties? I have, and here’s the latest example.

Baby Thomas was born recently to a father who finds amazing healing from him and a reason to live. Listen in to understand why.

Lit up to celebrate death

I’m just covering 1 topic this time out. New York state recently passed a new abortion law that allows for late-term abortion throughout the third trimester.

I posted this disapprovingly on the Facebook group, and listener Steve wanted me to prove my contention that this is essentially abortion for any reason at any time. This, then, is my reasoning. Look at history and the law, and you can’t really say otherwise.

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy

With the retirement of Supreme court Justice Anthony Kennedy, the Left in this country has been very downcast, and understandably so. But today I want to talk about 2 reasons why this should never have been the case. There really shouldn’t be any reason to fear the retirement of a Justice of a different political persuasion if the checks and balances in this country’s government are allowed to work properly.

They haven’t been allowed to for decades, especially with regards to the Supreme Court. I’m going to highlight 2 of these, but both can be summed up in this one statement; the power you grab will be used against you.

The sky isn’t falling, you’re just laying an egg

When Sarah Huckabee-Sanders was kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant, that act plus the reactions to it from the Left demonstrated their inconsistent principles. And no, this is not similar to the Masterpiece Cakeshop situation. I’ll explain.

An internal memo from the ACLU shows that defending the constitutional right to free speech will be subject to what they think of the speech. That’s their prerogative, but it may be time for a name change.

And the Supreme Court ruled against coerced speech, saying that the state of California doesn’t have the right to force crisis pregnancy centers to advertise free abortion services elsewhere. If this is a harbinger of things to come, Jack Phillips must be smiling.
