Yuck. Paul Begala Makes Dirty Joke to Kids

CNN contributor Paul Begala made a sex joke directed towards young people that initiated a national bout of reverse peristalsis. The weird thing is how excited he seems to be saying this clearly prepared tired joke.

Daily Caller:

“[Democrats] need to get out and vote. Especially young people — they really tend not to vote,” Begala said. “I was telling Jim [Sciutto] during the break, my 18-year-old son — he just turned 18 — he’s gonna vote with his old man today.”

“His high school class is watching this in [AP Government],” he continued. “This is the key for young people — your parents don’t tell you this: voting is the most fun you can have with your clothes on.”
What is wrong with these people?

A Grim Choice Tomorrow

If the progressives win tomorrow they will surely seek to attack conservatives and Christians. But if they lose tomorrow they will attack conservatives and Christians. So the only question is whether you want them coming after you with all the power of government or with bats and hammers. #uptoyou

Oh and the other bonus is that whatever they do to you will be your fault. If the power of government is forced to close down your business or arrest you for hate speech or fining you into bankruptcy, it'll be because you're a hater and you brought it on yourself. And if they're forced to simply beat you then it's because you created a culture of intolerance or something.

So, in short, you might as well vote your conscience because you're going to suffer for it either way.

It's Hollywood vs. Satanists

Netflix's 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' Receives Legal Threat from Satanic Temple.

Hmmm. Satanists vs. Hollywood. I honestly don't know who to root for?

MSN:

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina debuted on Netflix just in time to spook fans before Halloween, but the co-founder of The Satanic Temple isn't happy with one of the series' treats.

In the streaming series, Sabrina Spellman attends The Academy of Unseen Arts. At the school, and shown several times throughout the series, is a statue of goat deity Baphomet.

TST co-founder Lucien Greaves took to Twitter over the weekend to tell his followers the temple is taking legal action against the series "for appropriating our copyrighted monument design to promote their asinine Satanic Panic fiction." He also shared an image of the two statues next to one another, which is posted below.

Stuart de Haan, legal adviser for TST, sent The Hollywood Reporter the text of a demand letter he says he sent to Netflix and Warner Bros. Entertainment. (Neither company has responded to a request for comment or confirmed receipt of the letter.)

"By way of background, my client is struggling to overcome centuries of stigma surrounding their religious symbolism," writes de Haan. "My client has expended considerable efforts in the design and creation of their particular expression of Baphomet, the goat-headed deity represented by this monument. This statue is an original work and, until now, has been associated exclusively with The Satanic Temple all around the world. This has deep religious significance to my client’s organization."
Here's their statue:

Oh poor Satanists don't like being stigmatized. I would argue that Satanists have been treated a helluva lot better on television and movies than Christians.


So, like I said, in a battle between Satanists vs. Hollywood, you know who will eventually win? The lawyers.

Josef Mengele Escaped to Argentina and Became an Abortionist

In the early 1990's, Argentine authorities opened its archives to reveal that several Nazi war criminals found safe haven in South America, including Dr. Josef Mengele, also known as Auschwitz' Angel of Death.

Mengele is infamous for his horrific experiments on inmates at the concentration camp.

According to The New York Times in 1992, Mengele entered Argentina using a Red Cross issued passport in 1949 and "practiced medicine in Buenos Aires for several years in the 1950's" and specialized in illegal abortions.

According to the report, a young woman died after a botched abortion at the hands of Mengele. For that crime he was detained "briefly" by a Buenos Aires judge and was released when appeared in the courtroom with a "package presumably filled with a large amount of money."

The Seams of Civilization are Tearing

We have lost something. We have lost it because we broke it and we don't know which pieces to pick up. Destroying is always easier than building.
This nation which was built on the motto “E Pluribus Unum” has become... fractured. Some seem to delight in this like that artist who painted a mustache on the Mona Lisa and received high praise. Others are simply resigned to it — as if something inevitable is finally happening, so let's just make it quick.

I approach this with sadness and dread.

Two Republican politicians were assaulted last week week. No coverage. Last year, Republican congressmen were shot at as they practiced baseball by a man who yelled, “This is for healthcare.” The FBI ruled that it was a “spontaneous” shooting and the shooter had “no target in mind.”
Senator Rand Paul was attacked horrifically. It was treated as a punchline by the grinners on TV news. Prominent Republicans have ben surrounded and bullied out of restaurants. Their bullies have been called “activists.”

NY Times: Anatomy Does Not Determine Gender, Experts Say.

NY Times: Anatomy Does Not Determine Gender, Experts Say.

Me: Uhm. Experts in what?

NYT:

Defining gender as a condition determined strictly by a person’s genitals is based on a notion that doctors and scientists abandoned long ago as oversimplified and often medically meaningless.
Researchers who have studied gender issues and provided health care to people who do not fit the typical M/F pigeonholes said that the Trump administration’s latest plan to define gender goes beyond the limits of scientific knowledge.
“The idea that a person’s sex is determined by their anatomy at birth is not true, and we’ve known that it’s not true for decades,” said Dr. Joshua D. Safer, an endocrinologist and executive director of the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Mount Sinai Health System in New York. He is also president of the United States Professional Association of Transgender Health.

But exactly what does determine gender identity — a person’s powerful, core knowledge of who they are — is not so clear.

“We know that there is a significant, durable biological underpinning to gender identity,” Dr. Safer said. “What we don’t know are all of the biological factors at play that explain gender identity. As far as we in the mainstream biological-medical community understand it in 2018, it is hard-wired, it is biological, it is not entirely hormonal, and we do not have identified genes, so we cannot specifically say it is genetic.”
So, in the end, you'll just have to trust your betters to decide. They always know best. Just ask the New York Times.

Witches and Mobs are at least on the same side this time

I read recently that there are more people in America practicing wiccan-ism than there are Presbyterians. Hey, to me, going from Presbyterian to wiccan seems like a lateral move but...whatever.

Now, it seems a coven of witches is gathering to hex Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Anyone else starting to think Pope Benedict XVI was right about Harry Potter?

I guess the interesting thing to note here is that unlike the Middle Ages the witches and the mobs are on the same side.

NY Post:

The Witches of Bushwick upheld their promise to “hex” Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday night, carving his name into a black candle, dousing it in “Revenge Oil” and then setting it on fire in a private ceremony in the Brooklyn neighborhood.

The goal was “exposing the fact that he’s a crook,” explained witch Dakota Bracciale, 29. “I mean if his d–k shrivels up and falls off, great, but I don’t think that’s something realistic to hope for.”

Witch Lindsay Von Wener, 26, said hexes work through the power of positive — or negative — suggestion, sort of as a matter of “witch-ful” thinking.
“If you put it out there, then it’ll happen,” she said. “If you watch Oprah, then you know how to do witchcraft.”

100 Years Ago, Hollywood Made an Anti-Abortion Movie

There haven't been many since Where Are My Children

I keep reading that Hollywood wanted nothing to do with the new movie Gosnell because abortion is such a divisive topic. That, of course, is complete manure. They want nothing to do with pro-life movies because they hate pro-lifers.

If they truly just wanted to stay away from a controversial topic, why make movies like Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Dirty Dancing, Cider House Rules as well as countless television shows including Maude, Dawson's Creek, Party of Five, and most recently Scandal, all of which featured abortions?

Interestingly, a little over 100 years ago, Hollywood created a movie starring Tyrone Power Sr. in which he played Richard Walton, a district attorney, who was very pro-eugenics. In the silent film, he is trying a case against Dr. Homer, who has been arrested for distributing 'indecent' birth control literature that includes lines shown on screen saying, “When only those children who are wanted are born the race will conquer the evils that weigh it down.” (Sound familiar?)

Went to see Gosnell?

One funny thing about going to see "Gosnell." Before the movie, there's a preview for a movie about what a hero Ruth Vader Ginsburg is and everyone was looking around confused. One old guy asked his wife to check the tickets to make sure they were in the right theater.

The movie itself is horrifying, factual, well acted and a must-see for pro-lifers. For me, the scene with Janine Turner as an abortionist, is the scene that will stick with me.

10 Ways the Mafia Isn't like the Abortion Industry

Pope Francis recently compared the abortion industry to the mafia. If you ask me, that's not really being fair to the mafia though.

Here’s one difference: When the mafia kills, it’s illegal.

Here are 10 ways the mafia is different than the abortion industry.

1) The mafia doesn’t receive millions in government funding.

2) The mafia kills to protects its business interests. For Planned Parenthood, killing is the business interest.

3) The mafia claims that killing is only one percent of what they do.

4) Mafiosi go to jail for not paying taxes, Planned Parenthood doesn’t pay taxes.
