Hillary Lets The Veil Slip: Religion Is A Problem To Be Disposed Of

Hillary said this:

“Laws [about reproductive health care and safe childbirth] have to be backed up with resources and political will,” Clinton said. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” (Source)

Wow. I didn’t think the mask would come off so brutally and quickly. As Matt K. Lewis points out:

this honest appraisal is a reminder that politics are downstream from culture, and that uprooting long-standing religious and cultural beliefs are a prerequisite for utopian progressivism… Regardless of how one feels about gay rights or the abortion debate, it is interesting that liberals are finally getting around to openly confessing something all of us sort of know — yet few will say out loud: Achieving a liberal social agenda will necessarily require first extirpating many “deep-seated” Christian values and tenets.

Exactly.

I’m curious to see if the USCCB provides a strong, unanimous condemnation of Hillary’s position, or if some folks have their head so deep in the sand that they can’t hear Hillary.

Darth Vader is polling higher than all potential 2016 presidential candidates

Bwahahaha!

None of the 2016 hopefuls is polling higher than Darth Vader. You’ll recall that Vader chopped off his son’s arm and blew up an entire planet, but evidently in the eyes of the American public these are minor sins compared to Benghazi, Bridgegate and Gov. Rick Perry’s hipster glasses. These numbers suggest that if “Star Wars” were real and Darth Vader decided to enter the 2016 presidential race, he’d be the immediate front-runner.

Meanwhile President Obama is polling just two favorability points below Emperor Palpatine, Lord of the Sith. Make of that what you will (Source).

Jokes aside, this makes you realize how dysfunctional democracies have become.

Supreme Court puts kibosh on Obama’s contraception mandate for closely held businesses

From our friends at Catholic Vote:

Dear CV Friend, 

“Deo Gratias.” 

Thanks be to God. 

That’s what a Catholic business owner who sued the U.S. government wrote me this morning following the Supreme Court decision. 

Specifically, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that closely-held corporations do not forfeit their First Amendment right to religious liberty, and therefore cannot be forced to comply with the HHS ‘contraception’ mandate. 

This means that thousands of private businesses run by Catholics and other people of faith are free to live their deeply held beliefs, and provide quality health coverage without the threat of crippling fines that could ruin their businesses and their lives.

Democratic Party Chair: “Wrong” to Punish Men Who Force Women to Have Abortion

Debbie Wasserman Schulz is at it again. The chair of the national Democratic Party says a bill to punish men who force their partners to have abortions is “wrong” and “senseless.” The Florida legislature passed and sent to pro-life Governor Rick Scott a bill that punishes criminals who kill an unborn child in the course of an attack on a pregnant woman. The bill ensures the criminal is charged with two crimes, for killing the baby and killing or injuring the pregnant woman. The bill was necessary because John Andrew Welden tricked his pregnant girlfriend, Remee Lee, into taking a drug, misoprostol, to cause an abortion. Lee was six weeks pregnant and refused to have an abortion as Welden had demanded. Authorities say that 28-year-old John Andrew Welden did not want to be a father, so when his girlfriend, Remee Jo Lee, got pregnant, Welden faked a prescription for an abortion pill, switched a label so the medication appeared to be a common antibiotic, and gave her the drug. The drug did its job. The unborn baby died. But punishing people like Welden is “wrong and senseless,” according to the top Democrat in the nation. (Source)

Another stellar example of pro-aborts looking after the best interests of women.  We know what’s good for you…and you’ll like it too!

Tea Party II: Grazing Cattle

Militia members from Montana and Utah have already arrived at the ranch and indicate plenty more are headed that way. Operation Mutual Aid, a coalition of state militias, is planning a coordinated effort of support, according to West Mountain Rangers member Ryan Payne. “They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” he said earlier this week. Payne said the county should prepare for “a band of soldiers” responding to the standoff, explaining militias are necessary to be “the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants.” (Source)

Now you know why Americans see the right to bear arms as fundamental to protecting their freedom.    And they’re right, too.  Sometimes thugs only understand the justice that comes from looking down a barrel of a gun.  If you donna speaka da language, you donna make them capiche.

Watch video here.

In 1993, The Federal Bureau of Land Management created new fees on public grazing land in Clark County, Nevada. BLM officials came up with these fees to discourage ranching in order to protect an endangered tortoise. Bundy refused to pay for grazing on land that he and his family had been using for over 100 years. Now BLM officers have surrounded the ranch and are forcibly removing his cattle. In the meantime, as protests have grown, the BLM has restricted free speech to designated “zones”, and even violently confronted protesters.
