NFL PLANTS A KNEE TO THE THROAT OF THE 2ND AMENDMENT

URGENT ALERT – YOUR ACTION REQUIRED

NFL PLANTS A KNEE TO THE THROAT OF THE 2ND AMENDMENT

IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR GUNS, YOU’LL BOYCOTT THE NFL AND ITS SPONSORS

If you’re not boycotting the NFL and its sponsors already, you really should be – especially in light of the league’s latest assault on our Constitution and our liberty.  First, the NFL provides tacit approval of its players’ belittlement and desecration of our flag and our national anthem.  Now, the NFL has announced it has paid its first $500,000 installment to gun control groups to fund a program designed to take your guns away from you.

Many of us remember the days when the NFL provided wholesome Sunday afternoon entertainment.  Players were humble heroes who inspired children and adults alike to give it their all – whether it be on the playing field, in the classroom, or on the job.  In contrast, the ranks of players in today’s NFL are a loathsome collection of sociopaths to include animal abusers, sex-perverts, wife beaters, rape artists, drunks and drug addicts.  Greed and self-indulgence have plunged the NFL into a cesspool of debauchery.

Now the NFL wants to drag you and your guns down into that same cesspool.

The NFL is clearly an enemy of our national anthem, an enemy of our flag, and has now committed itself as an enemy of your gun rights.  The best way to fight back against the anti-American, anti-liberty stance of the NFL is to shut the league out of your life.  Don’t watch their games, don’t buy their licensed retail items, and boycott the league’s sponsors.  Stay true to your American ideals and hold tight to your self-respect.  Boycott the NFL.

To help save your guns, please do the following:

a.  Pass this alert on to all your gun owning friends and family.

b.  Post this alert to any and all social media sites to which you belong.

c.  Join or donate to the Illinois State Rifle Association.

Trump’s Major Issue with Immigrant Minors October 18, 2017

Trump’s Major Issue with Immigrant Minors

October 18, 2017  Tony Perkins

America’s refugee program is supposed to save lives — not endanger them. But that won’t be the case if ACLU and Planned Parenthood get their way. In a new court case, they’re teaming up to make the U.S. a dangerous place for unborn immigrants.

It’s a policy that started with Barack Obama, who apparently thinks the Statue of Liberty says, “Give me your tired, your poor, your yearning for abortion.” Like the rest of the radical Left, Cecile Richards misses the good old days of that administration, when taxpayer-funded abortions were as common as expired visas. That all changed under President Trump, who — like most Americans — doesn’t think “abortion” is part of the care our nation is called to provide. Liberals, of course, are hoping the courts will disagree now that a 17-year-old in a Texas resettlement center has permission from a judge to abort her unborn baby. Not so fast, said the Trump administration, whose officials stepped in to stop the procedure after they learned the girl was a minor in the care of an HHS-sponsored Catholic charity.

“There is no constitutional right for a pregnant minor to illegally cross the U.S. border and get an elective abortion while in federal custody,” an HHS official argued this week. “Federal law is very clear on giving the director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement the legal responsibility to decide what is in the best interests of a minor in the unaccompanied alien children program and, in this case, her unborn baby. We cannot cede our responsibility to care for minors and their babies by releasing them to ideological advocacy groups.” In the meantime, the spokesman said, “The Office of Refugee Resettlement is providing excellent care to this young woman and her unborn child and fulfilling our duty to the American people.”

Part of that duty is ensuing that our tax dollars don’t fund the taking of innocent human life. After all, this mother’s case is under the care of HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), which means that every cent flows through the pro-life Hyde Amendment. When the head of ORR, Scott Lloyd, heard about the teenager’s request, he threw his support behind the Catholic charity that took her to a pregnancy care center. “Grantees should not be supporting abortion services pre- or post-release; only pregnancy services and life-affirming options counseling,” he reiterated. Anything less would not only violate taxpayers’ trust, but the conscience of the faith-based group caring for her.

In an amicus brief in defense of the Trump administration, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton points out, “No federal court has ever declared that unlawfully-present aliens with no substantial ties to this country have a constitutional right to abortion on demand. If ‘Doe’ prevails in this case, the ruling will create a right to abortion for anyone on earth who enters the U.S. illegally. And with that right, countless others undoubtedly would follow. Texas must not become a sanctuary state for abortions.” Let’s not forget, this is a minor in the custody of the federal government. Beyond the problems of paying for her abortion, bureaucrats would be making decision for a teenager with significant ramifications — both emotionally and physically. The Trump administration is absolutely doing the right thing — for America and this girl — by protecting her from the predators at Planned Parenthood, who look at this young child, not as a mother but as a business opportunity.

“Everyone deserves access to basic health care regardless of their age, income, or immigration status,” Cecile Richards told reporters. Since when did “basic health care” include taking the life of an innocent child? People from around the world still flock to America, some even breaking the law to do so, to escape oppression and mistreatment. Like millions of immigrants before them, they’re desperately seeking freedom and opportunity — two things abortion robs of every single victim. Fifty-nine million children into the gruesome legacy of Roe, President Trump should be applauded for giving these unborn refugees sanctuary in their mother’s womb.

Filibuster rule in the Senate needs to go

Tell Sen. McConnell to "get to work" or "step down."

President Trump was elected to carry out the agenda of Americans. Appointing constitutionally conservative judges is a significant part of this agenda, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is allowing Democrats to obstruct the judicial nomination process.

Tell Sen. McConnell to “get to work” or “”step down.”

Did you know President Donald Trump has made 57 judicial nominations, but so far only 7 judges have been confirmed by the Senate? This leaves 50 of President Trump’s judicial nominees waiting to be cleared by either the Senate Judiciary Committee or to be voted on by the full Senate.

So far only 10 of the 50 pending nominees are up for a full Senate vote, but Senate Democrats are demanding there be 30 hours of debate on each nominee.

Sen. McConnell said, “If this (30-hour debate) continues, it will take us more than 11 years to confirm the remaining presidential appointments….The level of obstruction exhibited by Senate Democrats on these nominees is simply breathtaking….And our colleagues (Democrats) need to stop this immediately – for the sake of our country.”

Sen. Majority Leader McConnell blames Senate Democrats for the problem but refuses to employ the solution which is to waive the 30-hour debate rule. Sen. McConnell could lower the set amount of time to debate each nominee, but he remains entrenched in allowing Senate Democrats to thwart the nomination of President Trump’s judges.

Tell Sen. McConnell to “get to work” or “step down.”

Conservatives should demand the Senate Republican majority to waive the 30-hour debate rule and end the filibuster.

Waive the 30-hour debate rule
Sen. McConnell needs to consider Sen. Ron Johnson’s (R-WI) solution to the Democratic obstruction. Sen. Johnson has proposed to use the precedent established by Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) in 2013 to end the 30-hour debate rule by a simple majority vote.

As reported in The Hill, Sen. Johnson said: “Change the rules of the Senate to limit debate on sub-Cabinet and lower-court nominees to two hours on the Senate floor. Use Senate committees to vet nominees and report on them to the full Senate, where leadership can assign appropriate members to make the case for or against a nominee in the allotted two hours. Then vote.”

The Republican Senate majority have within their reach the legitimate use of power to put an end to this Democratic obstruction. Yet these Republicans have refused to lift a finger to end this madness.

End Democratic Filibuster
The U.S. Senate has a 52 Republican majority that could get a conservative agenda through the Senate if they ended the Democratic filibuster, but 29 of these Republican senators, along with 32 Democrats, have declared their support for Sen. McConnell to keep the filibuster.

Democrats are killing conservative legislation using the filibuster, and ending the filibuster requires 60 votes. Unless Sen. McConnell leads the Senate Republican majority to waive the filibuster rule and change to majority vote, then it’s impossible to end the Democratic obstruction. There’s little chance Democrats will advance a conservative agenda.

Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) was correct when he said Democrats have “changed the game” when they did away with the filibuster to confirm President Obama’s federal judges. Sen. Shelby also correctly noted that the filibuster is “not the law. It’s not the statute. It’s not the Constitution.” Also, Republicans changed Senate precedent to approve Judge Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Other Senators opposing Sen. McConnell on the filibuster are: Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). There are also 19 other Republican Senators who have refused to go on record to keep the filibuster. On the House side, U.S. Representative Trent Franks (R-AZ) recently said, “It is time for America to abolish the 60-vote Senate rule” to end the filibuster and vote by simple majority.

Unless Sen. McConnell and other Republicans wave Senate rules to establish a new precedent to end the Democratic obstruction and confirm President Trump’s judicial nominees, defund sanctuary cities, defund Planned Parenthood, and pass Kate’s Law, etc., then the net effect will be a continuation of the Obama Administration under a Republican majority in the House and Senate.

Tell your senators to “get to work” or call on Sen. McConnell to “step down.”
