Stop the ACLU! Weekly Roundup 11/25-12/01/2007


I’m combining two things this week because they’re both timely. First, of course, is the standard Stop the ACLU! Weekly Round-up from Jay here. Following the round-up is a little bit of help from the American Center for Law and Justice (“ACLJ”) here, regarding your and your family’s rights this Christmas season.

Articles:
Boston Wants to Ban Spanking
Nannystating at its core definition. Boston wants Mass to be first! I can only ask what the h**l is wrong with these people? There was a time when an unruly child got paddled when they misbehaved. Over the last couple of decades that has been set aside in favor of “time outs” and other such “punishments” that don’t really work. What do we have to show for it? Unruly children terrorizing teachers across the land, falling test scores and disrespectful children.

Kucinich and Ron Paul Ticket?
Kucinich is actually suggesting his hopes for this. Wouldn’t this be a sign of the apocalypse if it happens?

“Christ” Taken Out of Christmas Festival
Just another casuality in the war. Thanks to political correctness and groups like the ACLU. Chipping away at the core.

The traditional Dickens Christmas Festival has been re-named the Dickens Holiday Festival so the city can advertise in local schools.

In order to get more bang for their buck out of a thinning advertisement budget, the organization wants to put fliers in schools. For that to happen, the word “Christmas” had to be removed.

Downtown Development Coordinator Michelle Sponseller said many people are unhappy with the change.

“We changed the name this year for the schools because we wanted to advertise in the school brochures and the schools have a list of words you can’t use like Santa, Christmas and Nativity. So did a brochure for the schools and we took those words out.”

Hillary Plant in Republican CNN YouTube Debate?
It is basically confirmed. Of course, not admitted, but much that wasn’t disclosed on this guy. He member of the Hillary Clinton campaign

Report: Guiliani’s Mistress Used N.Y. Police as Taxi Service
Hopefully I don’t make any enemies with this one, or accusations of eating my own, but I’m not a Rudy fan and don’t look at him as one of our own anyway. I really don’t understand why I’m not seeing more conservative blogs comment on this. Rudy’s explanations are shabby, and don’t even answer the accusations that his mistress had her own taxi service with the Police. It will be of interest to me to hear his explanations to the charges. Innocent until proven guilty. However, I think he is wrong that this will not hurt him. I’ve put up my opinion on this.

The ACLU Thinks This Is An Endorsement?
Seriously, the ACLU just put out a snarky press release thanking Mitt Romney for recognizing their work. It full of sarcasm, and while I’m not a big Romney fan, he just scored points with me by getting a personal attack from the ACLU.

Rudy Guiliani Should Not Be the Republican Nominee; He Really Shouldn’t Even Call Himself Republican
I’m having a hard time understanding why the most liberal contender is getting so much support. I’m having a hard time understanding those that say he is the only one that can beat Hillary. He is on the opposite side of almost every conservative issue. If he were to be president it would be a backwards step for the conservative movement. It is about more than just beating Hillary. Its about beating back liberalism. The only thing that can do that is conservative values and principles being incorporated. That isn’t gonna happen if Rudy Giuliani gets elected. Hopefully anyone supporting Rudy on the false premise that he is the only candidate that can beat Hillary will wake up and come back to core principles of conservatism. Thats really the only thing that can win in the end.

New York Times Hopes for SCOTUS Gun Grab
The “paper of record” once again makes like a broken record with another prosaic call to take away guns from the average American. The New York Times again displays its complete disregard of the Constitution in an editorial titled, “The Court and the Second Amendment”, claiming our founding law is out of date and doesn’t “confront modern-day reality.” In another editorial filled with extreme language, untrue definitions and arrogance, and cementing its reputation against self-defense and American principles, the Times addressed the recent decision by the Supreme Court to soon take on the DC Gun banning reversal case. Hitting all its best low notes and filled with propaganda laced verbiage, the Times again made the case that you, Mr. and Mrs. America, are too stupid and filled with bloodlust to be trusted with a firearm… quite despite that musty, stupid old, out of date Constitution thingie.

Partial Birth Abortion-Here We Go Again

Take a good long look at the picture above. That child was the victim of a partial birth abortion.

Offended? GOOD–those who endorse abortion SHOULD be offended. They should also be ashamed and sick enough to their stomachs at actually seeing the results of that which they advocate they’re throwing up for months afterwards and haunted by their nightmares.

How about this one for some nightmares?

Or this one?

Or this?


Too graphic you say? I shouldn’t show things like this? I shouldn’t show the effects of infanticide because it might offend the liberals who advocate infanticide? The same liberals who go after a child dressed in a soldier’s uniform for Halloween in honor of his soldier father and is beaten to a pulp by his classmates while the classmate’s mothers’ stand by? The same liberals who post in the comment thread the child honoring his father should have been killed (the child was about 10)? The same liberals who want to give our 11 year old daughters birth control pills at school without a parent’s permission? The same liberals who think it’s a good idea to let underage girls have abortions without parental permission? The same liberals who think the Folsom Sex Fest is wholesome and not a slap to decent people, not a slap to Christianity and take their children to see it? THOSE LIBERALS? I MIGHT OFFEND THOSE LIBERALS?

TOUGH SHIT.

I have absolutely no sympathy for them–NONE.

The following came to me in my email from the American Center for Law and Justice.

Dear [Redacted],

It would be understandable if you felt cheated, frustrated, or even angry.

After all our efforts to see the horror of partial-birth abortion officially banned in this country …

After Congress voted to ban it, the President signed the bill into law, the Supreme Court of the United States upheld that law …

Even after all this, within minutes of that Court ruling, pro-abortion members of Congress introduced a bill which would totally thwart the will of the people – reversing the decision of Congress and the President and undoing the ruling of the Supreme Court.

Give your immediate online gift of support and stand with the ACLJ right now to turn back this challenge to the federal ban on partial-birth abortion!

These members of Congress have put some ”spin” on their bill: they call it the ”Freedom of Choice” Act – but it’s not really about freedom of choice.

It’s actually a slap in the face to the American people … it’s a tip of the hat to the abortion doctors and their lobbyists … and it’s a very real threat against the lives of unborn babies.

Support for this bill flooded in from the entire abortion lobby — the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, N.O.W., NARAL: Pro-Choice America, and others. Which means millions of dollars will almost certainly flow into the campaign for this legislation.

The ACLJ truly needs the generous support of members like you today to mount an aggressive counter-offense, or all our vital efforts in support of the unborn will have been in vain.

Senators Hillary Clinton, Charles Schumer, Barbara Boxer, and others have introduced this bill (H.R. 1964 and S. 1173) in one of the most brazen political moves we’ve seen in years – but it is also extremely dangerous, because if passed, it would enshrine abortion into law. [Emphasis mine]

In order to stop this tidal wave, we absolutely must take VERY aggressive action through our Washington, D.C., office.

I have set in motion several lawyers and a senior research team. We are dealing with members of both the House and the Senate. We can’t simply work to prevent passage; we must also prepare to litigate in case the bill does become law.

I assure you, we will fight every step of the way. But we need your help.

Right now, the ACLJ is carrying an enormous workload on top of this issue, and as a result, we urgently need a generous online tax-deductible contribution from you today.

We are returning to the Supreme Court of the United States with not one but two simultaneous cases in which public displays of the Ten Commandments are under fire. The work required for these twin cases is of MONUMENTAL proportion.

It’s a massive number of work-hours – and you can see why we really need your support now in this current fight for life.

Here’s the bottom line: your personal part in this effort is vitally important. Please let us hear from you right away.

Thank you.

And so goes the slippery slope into socialistic thought. Rid yourself of those you don’t want and find a way to justify it.

Then, find a way to legislate who is allowed and who isn’t allowed to bear children. Those not allowed will have their children aborted and will find themselves sterilized. Like the eugenics project of Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood). Like China with their one child per family law.

Where does the slippery slope end? How long before euthansia is justified? How soon before we become like the Netherlands that allow infanticide AFTER the child is born because the parents may not like the child–for WHATEVER reason, wrong eye color, wrong hair color, wrong sex–how long?

Below is the summary of the Freedom of Choice act from the ACLJ website:

The Freedom of Choice Act

While the Supreme Court of the United States upheld the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 in Gonzales v. Carhart, abortion supporters in Congress have acted quickly to counteract the decision. Senator Barbara Boxer and Representative Jerrold Nadler have introduced a bill, called the Freedom of Choice Act, that would dramatically expand federal protection of abortion rights beyond what is required by Roe v. Wade or Planned Parenthood v. Casey. The bill would invalidate many federal, state and local abortion laws, including the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.

The Freedom of Choice Act would create an absolute right to abortion that would override any federal, state or local law that simply “interfered with” that right, no matter how compelling the justification for the law. For instance, the Freedom of Choice Act would likely invalidate the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act even though the statute is constitutional. The findings section of the Freedom of Choice Act states that Congress’s decision in the partial-birth abortion case “permits the government to interfere with the woman’s right to choose to terminate pregnancy . . . .” Since the Freedom of Choice Act would invalidate any federal, state or local law that interferes “with a woman’s right to choose . . . to terminate a pregnancy prior to viability,” federal and state partial-birth abortion bans would likely be invalidated.

This attempt to not only reverse the Supreme Court decision but to expand the right to abortion must be dealt with aggressively. Our Government Affairs staff is already working on congressional efforts to defeat this bill. I have assembled a legal team that is already reviewing possible legal challenges if this bill were to actually be passed. While I am not surprised by this move, I am very concerned. We must work aggressively to protect the most vulnerable among us. We have prepared a special video presentation on the Freedom of Choice Act. Click here if you’d like to view it.

Take a good look at the sponsors: Barbara Boxer and Jerrold Nadler. Look who supports it: Hillary Clinton, Charles Schumer, Barbara Boxer.


Put a stop to this atrocity–don’t let any more children die from this sanctioned infanticide.

ANOTHER Victory–This one for Free Speech!

Dear [Redacted],

Victory Victory at the House of Representatives Video I am pleased to report on a significant victory at the House of Representatives!

Please take just a moment to view a special video report I prepared for you just hours following this pivotal victory, which defeated Congressman Marty Meehan’s dangerous amendment to the lobbying reform legislation.

Congressman Meehan sought to impose a grassroots lobbying restriction as part of the lobbying reform bill. This amendment was nothing short of an imposed gag-order on conservative, pro-family, pro-life organizations.

If it were to have passed, the language would have severely limited and restricted the First Amendment rights of grassroots organizations … such as the ACLJ … to mobilize on the key cultural issues of the day.

This is an important free speech victory for churches and non-profit organizations! Your voice, raised in protest, along with more than 180,000 Americans, helped to squash this dangerous legislation before the Judiciary Committee. The aggressive work of the ACLJ posed a formidable challenge to Congressman Meehan’s grassroots prohibition.

Please watch my video report right now and remember, your solid support makes these significant victories possible!
