Democrats’ bizarre bond with death

April 23, 2019

Earlier this month, Democrat New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy bragged about signing legislation legalizing doctor assisted suicide, becoming the eighth state to casually devalue life. In signing the bill, Murphy, a self-described “lifelong, practicing Catholic,” stated that while he was aware the Church opposed assisted suicide he was signing the bill into law regardless.

The bill was co-sponsored by Assemblyman John Burzichelli and Senator Nick Scutari, both….you guessed it…Democrats.

New Jersey joins other assisted suicide-condoning states with Democrat governors including California, Colorado, Hawaii, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.  Vermont is the stand alone with a Republican chief executive to sign assisted suicide legislation.  

 It’s a slippery slope. Newly-born life has been shockingly devalued by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, another Democrat, who condones infanticide via post-birth abortion saying it‘s a decision to be made by a mother and her provider.  Northam, a medical doctor, is even more reprehensible, since his pre-political career has been as a pediatric neurologist. Although he condones death for innocent babies, he opposes the death penalty for the most horrific criminals, who have committed capital offenses.

Watch this astonishing video of Northam’s interview on CNS News.

Appearing on WTOP’s “Ask The Governor,” program Northam defended the 40-week abortion bill saying, “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

New York’s leftist Gov. Andrew Cuomo celebrated signing into law abortion up until birth. Watch this Fox and Friends video featuring New York Archbishop, Cardinal Timothy Dolan discussing how Democrats changed their previous abortion rhetoric from “safe, legal and rare” to what has now morphed into “dangerous, enforced and frequent.”

 Cuomo has gone to the mat banning single use of plastic bags, which he prioritizes over human life.

Foolish do-gooders aid and abet illegal invasion

April 22, 2019

Righteous absurdity of the left

The Easter Sunday edition of the local newspaper devoted front page coverage, including two jump pages, to a 74-year-old local grandmother who opens her small condo to hordes of illegal aliens. The article is headlined, “We are called to welcome strangers…Arizonan opens home, heart to asylum seekers.” A more fitting title would be, “Misguided do-gooder* aids and abets illegal invasion.”

Her home is described as “spotless” although the photos belie that depiction. Truth on any level simply has no relevancy when the topic is illegal aliens. Imagine a neighbor harboring criminals steps away from your home. Yet she and others working in concert with their churches, are extolled for feeding, clothing and temporarily housing Central American illegals now breaching our border by the 100‘s of thousands as they caravan through facilitating Mexico. The illegals, referred to as “guests,” are coddled until they are able to fan out cross the United States and access taxpayer-funded benefits. Any children they have once here are automatically American citizens based on flawed interpretations of the Fourteen Amendment, able to exploit absurd chain migration policies to bring in other relatives.

A pastor acknowledges not all of his congregants are happy with his church’s involvement, with some concerned that “publicity could lead to anti-immigrant protests from so-called patriot groups, which have occurred at other churches.”

Understand that if you believe in legal immigration and respect for the law, you are on the wrong side of this issue and your patriotism is open to question.

These brief insights aim to give our readers a sample of what the increasingly radical left-wing newspaper pushes as it attempts to make aiding criminality an act of faith-based decency. The failing Arizona Republic expends its last gasps of breath struggling to normalize the abnormal from deviancy to criminality, but is fooling no one but itself — evidenced by the fact that subscriptions for the anorexic, poor excuse for a newspaper continue to plummet. Parent company Gannett Co. Inc. continues to fail and has been the subject of hostile takeover bids as profit and revenue fall short of estimates.

For a cogent view on the impending prospects of such irrational tactics, read “Amnesty: Bad Policy, Even Worse Politics,by Bradley Betters — posted on American Thinker.

Christians target of Muslim Sri Lankan Easter bombers

April 21, 2019

“Religion of Peace” update

The U.K.‘s Daily Mail reports on the bloody carnage perpetrated by radical Muslims on Easter Sunday as coordinated bombings were carried out against Christian worshipers in Sri Lankan churches. Initial reports list at least 207 dead and nearly 500 wounded, including foreign visitors.

Three luxury hotels, frequented by tourists, were also targeted as eight near-simultaneous explosions took place across the country. Thirty-five foreigners, including Americans, British, Chinese, Dutch and Portuguese are reported killed in the blasts.

Although several of the perpetrators of the vicious crimes were suicide bombers — one of whom strategically placed himself in a hotel breakfast buffet line — seven suspects have been arrested.

Sri Lanka’s police chief issued a nationwide alert 10 days before the bomb attacks that suicide bombers planned to hit “prominent churches.”

“A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama’ath) is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian high commission in Colombo,” the alert stated.

The NTJ is a radical Muslim group in Sri Lanka that gained notoriety last year when it was linked to the vandalizing of Buddhist statues.   

According to the country’s 2012 census, Sri Lanka’s total population, then estimated at 22 million included 70% Buddhist, 13% Hindu, 10% Muslim, and 7% Christian.


LDS Church amends LGBT policy after “revelation”

April 5, 2019

At Thursday’s First Conference Leadership Session, President Dallin H. Oaks (who’s that guy in the red tie standing to his right in photo 10 of 11?) shared information about recent changes to policies within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender members.

The Church’s website states, “President Oaks has become known for his willingness to speak frankly about challenging issues, such as speaking in defense of the traditional family, telling single college students to stop hanging out and start dating, addressing threats to religious liberty, and decrying the evils of pornography.”

Here’s a recent example of that frank talk emanating from a revelation: President Dallin H. Oaks announced that children of parents who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender may be baptized without First Presidency approval.  Previous to the revelation, these children had been denied baptism.

The LDS Church also changed its policy on how it categorizes members of the church who are in same-sex marriages and relationships. The church will no longer consider members in these arrangements to be “apostates,” though still considered a “serious transgression.”

The LDS Church’s new stance on LGBT issues “reflect the continuing revelation” of the church. Doctrine and Covenants Section, 42:61 states:

 If thou shalt ask, thou shalt receive revelation upon revelation, knowledge upon knowledge, that thou mayest know the mysteries and peaceable things—that which bringeth joy, that which bringeth life eternal.

Oaks was clear that the Utah-based faith is not revising its doctrine on homosexuality, which teaches that having same-sex attraction is not a sin, but acting on it is.

“These changes do not represent a shift in church doctrine related to marriage or the commandments of God in regard to chastity and morality,” the newsroom statement said. “The doctrine of the plan of salvation and the importance of chastity will not change.”

Among other changes is terminology referencing the name of the church and even how church music is described — henceforth known as “sacred music.” The newsroom also has a new name, so ditch the term Mormon which is no longer on the A List. Recently it was announced that missionaries can now call their families more frequently, although “it  is  not  expected  that missionaries  will  call  or video chat with their parents every week.” Previous policy limited contact to twice a year.


Hypocrite Pope warns Pres. Trump on border wall

April 2, 2019

Pope Francis exhibited raw hypocrisy as he warned President Donald Trump…without specifically using his name…that building a wall to stem the flow of millions of illegal aliens will have dreadful consequences. 

“Builders of walls, be they made of razor wire or bricks, will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build,” the pope told reporters aboard his papal plane over the weekend. “The issue of migration will never be resolved by raising barriers, fomenting fear of others or denying assistance to those who legitimately aspire to a better life for themselves and their families.”

Returning to Rome from Morocco, where he used the occasion to speak extensively about those he refers to as “migrants,” during his two-day visit to the Muslim-majority nation. Francis praised King Mohamed VI, for welcoming and protecting “migrants,” and warned of the futility of border walls and other barriers in keeping out those who seek a better life. The king spends little time in his kingdom, preferring a castle in Oise, France which his father, the late King Hassan, bought in 1972. The fully modernized estate is maintained by a massive staff paid by Morocco’s taxpayers. His recently divorced wife has disappeared from public view as she’s been replaced by a newer queen. The pope remained silent on that issue, preferring to focus on President Donald Trump.

In 2016, Francis determined who is and who isn’t a Christian, with President Trump falling short in the eyes of the clairvoyant pope, who stated, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

In response, SRAZ posted, Pope Francis: “Tear down this wall,” paraphrasing President Reagan’s message to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev regarding the Berlin Wall that divided the German city and separated its own citizens.

The Marxist pope, an ardent anti-capitalist who has referred to capitalism as “the dung of the devil,” favors wealth redistribution for others but not for himself. He slams America’s duly elected president for following his mandate to provide security to the American people. Vatican City and its astonishing wealth and priceless works of art, is a walled fortress. A practiced practitioner of hypocrisy, Francis has disingenuously called forvigilance against hypocrisy.”

What we wrote in 2016 remains just as true today:

The massive 50-foot-tall, ten-foot thick wall surrounding the fortress that is Vatican City, and the Swiss Guard that function as its private military force, were defended by the Rev. James Martin who said:

“The fortifications were built a very long time ago. This pope didn’t build them — and he certainly didn’t build them to keep out poor migrants.”

Fair enough. Then let’s see him tear them down.  Count on this: That won’t be happening.


Democrats mainstream anti-Semitism & Update

March 7, 2019

The Holocaust, a shameful blight in modern history was a genocide in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically slaughtered six million European Jews — two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe —between 1933 and 1945. Adolf Hitler’s aim was total annihilation, facilitated by concentration camps equipped with showers that spewed deadly gas, ovens for humans and mass graves. After the allies liberated the skeletal, but still living victims, the rallying cry became, “Never Again!”

Who would imagine that anti-Semitism would find a home in the U.S. Congress in 2019 — a mere eight decades later?

Repeated vicious comments — widely criticized as anti-Semitic — questioning the patriotism of Jewish Americans, saying they “pledge allegiance to a foreign country,” referring to Israel, have been made by U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a Somali immigrant and radical Islamic activist. Women’s March co-chair Linda Sarsour came to Omar’s defense. Sarsour has notoriously called for a “jihad” against President Trump and urged Muslims not to assimilate in America.

Sarsour, an associate of hate-monger Louis Farrakhan who called Jews “termites,” “Satanic” and worse, blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for pushing an anti-Semitism resolution, calling her a “typical white feminist upholding the patriarchy doing the dirty work of powerful white men.” In the end, Democrat House leadership put forth a resolution that was gutted of its original intent. Pelosi’s resolution was first watered down to include the trendiest grievance groups of the moment.

In this video, Sarsour, surrounded by henchmen, refuses to answer whether Israel has a right to exist.

Radical Bronx Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the out-of-control new face of Socialism in the U.S. Congress supports Omar, who has called for a full-fledged boycott of Israel.

Omar made the controversial remarks while appearing alongside U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), another freshman congresswoman accused of making similar comments in recent weeks. She recently accused the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) of bribing Republican lawmakers into supporting Israel in exchange for payoffs. The fact that AIPAC does not make financial contributions to political candidates or sitting lawmakers doesn’t faze Tlaib. In 2012, Omar tweeted that Israel had “hypnotized the world” and committed “evil doings,” yet she was still elected in 2016. Omar and Tlaib are the first Muslim women elected to congress. Talib is a strident voice calling for the impeachment of President Trump.

Despite the fact that President Trump has fulfilled the promise of moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a promise made and quickly forgotten by other presidents,  a preponderance of Jewish voters remain irrationally bonded to the Democrat Party.

Barack Obama treated Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu with contempt, but still he carried 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008. Exit polls reflect Hillary’s odd appeal. Donald Trump, the father of a Jewish convert daughter and grandfather of three Jewish grandchildren, mysteriously only convinced 24% of Jewish voters. More than 75 percent voted for Democrats in the 2018 midterms.

It’s worth remembering the shameful display at the 2012 Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, when the delegates booed the inclusion of the word “God” in the language of their Party Platform and jeered the idea of moving the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem.

Here’s the SRAZ memory jogger — complete with the following shocking video.

 

The House Resolution  — read it HERE —- originally conceived to repudiate anti-Semitism, and specifically aimed at reprimanding Rep. Ilhan Omar, has been expanded to condemn Islamaphobia, white supremacy, anti-Catholicism, and racial profiling by law enforcement. Omar’s name is not mentioned. However, she did assist in writing what was supposed to be a rebuke of her overt bigotry.

Consider this capitulation the death knell for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s rein. 


Marxist Pope Francis oversees sexual abuse, corruption

February 26, 2019

The U.K.‘s Guardian newspaper, reports on the global sexual abuse scandal that is rocking the Catholic Church. These vile acts against children have been perpetrated by numerous leaders throughout the hierarchy, from parish priests to bishops, including archbishops and cardinals, to close advisers to Pope Francis. Cardinal George Pell, until recently the third most senior figure at the Vatican, is facing prison time for serial abuse of minors. Last June, Francis accepted the resignation of three Chilean bishops over their handling of abuse cases, including one he had vigorously defended a few months earlier. The recent list of degenerate clergy can be found in the Guardian link in the first sentence of this paragraph.

When Pope Benedict XVI was swiftly removed from the papacy in 2013, the first pope in over 600 years to “abdicate,” speculation ran rampant, but most often returned to the corruption he exposed at the top levels of the $8 Billion-asset Vatican Bank. Benedict’s rushed departure followed by immediate and permanent seclusion eerily coincided with the banking scandal exposé.

Enshrouded in secrecy for 6 years, no one except Vatican insiders know whether Benedict, who was elected pope in 2005, is above or below ground.

Polish-born Benedict witnessed the atrocities of WWII firsthand and valued liberty. Francis, an unconcealed Marxist, is the first Jesuit pope. Born in Argentina, he is the first pope from outside Europe since Gregory III, a Syrian, who led the church in the 8th century.

Pope Francis claims unusual skills, such as the ability to see into the heart of others; declaring prior to the 2016 presidential election that Donald Trump is not a Christian, as he clearly attempted to influence the outcome of the U.S. election.

Francis, who lives in opulence behind massive Vatican City walls, ridicules the United States for constructing a much smaller barrier on our southern border than the 50-foot-tall, ten-feet-deep wall surrounding the fortress that protects him, along with the Swiss Guard that function as a private military force. He frequently chastises America on the hot-button issues that drive the left, consumerism and global warming. Worst of all, he has concealed the rampant sexual abuse in the church until he was forced to hold a 4-day “summit,” where he apologized for the systemic perversion, calling the very clergy he protected, “instruments of Satan.”

His summit has been described as “vague” and “too little too late.” It’s time for Francis to get the same treatment given to Pope Benedict XVI — a righteous man who did not deserve to be banished.

Francis, who has spent his adult life living off the generosity of others, is clearly opposed to capitalism. In 2015, he issued this statement maligning the United States: “The ideology surrounding environmental issues is too tied to a capitalism that doesn’t want to stop ruining the environment because they don’t want to give up their profits.”

As we noted in Aug. 2016, Dems to enlist Pope on illegals, voter base expansion, his provocative mastery of Marxist, anti-capitalist buzzwords is disturbing, with redistribution of wealth one of his frequent themes. His “Inequality is the root of social evil,” set off a heated debate in which he was criticized for increasingly driving a wedge between conservatives and the Catholic Church. Francis previously blasted ‘trickle-down’ economics, a basic tenet of President Reagan’s economic policy as a “crude and naive” theory.

He obviously prefers the failed Marxist redistributionist model.
