Anonymous Threatens Revenge Against the NYPD and Mayor Bloomberg

The group Anonymous has answered the call from Occupy Wall Street to act for their cause.

This is the YouTube description for this video:

It is time to regain our credibility and destroy the NYPD and one man…MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG.

They leave no question what the next steps will be for them. It will be interesting to see if Mayor Bloomberg takes this group of thugs seriously now that a threat is on his life, personally!  And they say these are harmless people! Puhlease!

Occupy Wall Street Gets Evicted [Video]

Early Tuesday morning, the NYPD cleared Zucotti park of the Occupy Wall Street protesters some 70 of them by arrest.

The protesters were told that once the park was cleaned that they may return, but without tents, sleeping bags or other equipment that would indicate an intent to camp out on the privately-owned park.

From NBC New York:

Hundreds of police officers, some in riot gear, descended on Zuccotti Park after midnight Tuesday in a surprise sweep of the Occupy Wall Street headquarters.

It comes just two days ahead of a massive planned demonstration Thursday marking the movement’s two-month anniversary.

Police handed out letters to protesters ordering them to temporarily evacuate the park. Police said the eviction will improve health conditions.

The Wasthington Post reports, “At about 1 a.m. Tuesday, police handed out notices from the park’s owner, Brookfield Office Properties, and the city saying that the park had to be cleared because it had become unsanitary and hazardous. Protesters were told they could return, but without sleeping bags, tarps or tents.”

Interview after The Raid

Some protesters cut the locks at a private area owned by Trinity Church to set up another  illegal “occupation”. Police were quick to arrest and remove the trespassers.

Once the raid concluded, the protesters found a judge friendly to their cause to issue an order letting them back into the park with their tents and gear. Former ACLU and champion of the less fortunate Judge Lucy Billings signed the order at just after six in the morning. The city appealed and according to the Associated Press, “Supreme Court Justice Michael Stallman on Tuesday denied a motion by the demonstrators seeking to be allowed back into the park with their tents and sleeping bags..”

The cult-like Occupiers have a “day of action” planned for Thursday as requested by Union leadership. The Occupy Wall Street folks are planning a “major disruption” at Wall Street to coincide with the activities of big labor on that day. The group’s leaders are expecting their activities to be “the most provocative yet” and lead to mass arrests.

Occupy Wall Street spokesman Ed Needham said, “I think it is very difficult to do a day of action and not expect some sort of reaction from (authorities)”.

The day of action is expected to culminate in “a block party the 1% will never forget”. Exactly how a block party will shut down the New York Stock Exchange or Wall Street overall is unclear. Needham estimates that they will have 10,000 or more marching with the Occupiers in their attempt to take over Wall Street.

Deadly East Coast Winter Storm Leaves Millions Without Power

The number of homes and businesses that have lost electricity in the North East has surpassed 3 million as a freakish October snow storm crossed the region over the weekend.

The storm dumped more the 2 feet of heavy, wet snow in parts of New England causing flight delays, traffic accidents and extensive power outages.

Governors across the area have said that those without power should expect to be without electricity for several days. The governors of New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts have declared states of emergency on their states.

Almost 75,000 have lost power in the New York City area where the Occupy Wall Street takeover of Zucatti park has been happening. With lows in the high 20’s to lower 30’s expected tonight, only a handful of protesters remain in the park.

In Connecticut, the storm caused more than 750,000 to lose power breaking a record set when Hurricane Irene’s remnants struck the state.

Three deaths have also been reported across the North East due to the storm. An elderly man was killed while napping in his recliner when a tree feel on to his house. Another was killed in a traffic accident and the third was killed when he stepped near a downed power line.

The forecast is for dry, but cold temperatures to remain for Sunday with a slight warm up tomorrow.

Texas, North Carolina and South Carolina Viewed as Best States for Business

California, New York and Illinois Ranked as Worst for Business

NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — TexasNorth Carolina and South Carolina are viewed as having the best business climates among the 50 states, according to a new survey of U.S. corporate executives released here today.

The poll pinpointed California, New York and Illinois as the U.S. states with the least favorable business climates.

Conducted by Development Counsellors International (DCI) every three years, the “Winning Strategies in Economic Development Marketing” survey has tracked trends in economic development since its inception in 1996.

“With the battle for business more intense than ever, states and their economic development organizations need to pay close attention to the results of this survey,” said DCI President Andrew T. Levine. “Whether accurate or misguided, perceptions about a location’s business climate often play a crucial role in site selection decisions and where companies invest money and create jobs.”

Nearly half (46%) of the 322 corporate executive who responded to the survey indicated that their firm would make a location decision in the next 24 months – whether a move, expansion or consolidation of a manufacturing plant, offices, distribution center or other facilities. More than half (51%) said that they would outsource a portion of the site selection process to a real estate broker or site selection consultant.

Texas was the clear-cut favorite among the respondents to the survey, with 49.4% naming the Lone Starstate as having one of the most favorable business climates in the nation. North Carolina ranked second with 27.8%; South Carolina has 14.3% of the votes. Texas and North Carolina have consistently landed in the top spots since the survey began more than a decade ago. Texas has held the #1 ranking since 1999, while North Carolina has been #2 since 2002. South Carolina, Tennessee and Florida have frequently traded top positions in the survey and 2011 marks the return of South Carolina to the #3 slot.

When asked why they selected the states they did as being best for business, the corporate executives frequently cited low operating costs and a pro-business climate. In the 2008 survey, more executives pointed to the availability of a strong workforce than they did in 2011.

For the fourth consecutive time, California was deemed as having the least favorable business climate, with 70.5% of the responses. New York was named second most frequently with 46.5%, followed byIllinois (24.4%) Taxes, high costs and “anti-business climate/regulation” spurred most of the negative opinions.

The comprehensive survey also asked a series of questions to divine the most effective economic development marketing tools, the leading sources of information that influence executive perceptions of a community’s business climate and the most important factors in business location decisions.

DCI conducted the survey online, polling a random selection of C-level executives at U.S. companies with annual revenues of $25 million or more. The survey was augmented by 250 location advisors/consultants.

Amodei Wins NV Special Election, Signals More Trouble for Obama

Across the nation on Tuesday night many eyes were on the special election in the New York’s 9th Congressional district as “citizen” candidate, Republican Bob Turner defeated his Democrat opponent David Weprin to win the vacated seat of disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner.  Turner became the first Republican in over 80 years to hold the seat.

However, NY-09 was not the only Republican victory that night.  In Nevada, former state senator and Nevada Republican Party chairman Mark Amodei easily beat Democrat Kate Marshall in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District.  The special election was called to fill the seat of former Congressman Dean Heller, who was forced to resign after admitting to an extramarital affair.  Amodei’s victory was not as surpising as his New York counterpart’s, as it seemed like it would just be a matter of one Republican handing over the reigns to another.  The real surprise was in the margin of that victory: Amodei defeated Marshall by more than 20 points.

Although the NY-09 race seemed to indicate a referendum on Obama’s policies, particularly regarding Israel, some pundits have warned against that particular opinion.  Many believe it was nothing more than a fatigued constituency that was simply weary of Weiner’s seedy sex(ish) scandal looking to distance themselves from the party he represented.  However, Amodei’s large victory debunks that point of view.  If that were the case, wouldn’t the NV electorate have at least indicated the same type of fatigue, considering the similar circumstances of that special election?

Whatever the case may be, the Obama administration is sure be paying close attention to these election results.  They may well be a precursor to the Presidential election in 2012.

911 Remembered

Ten years ago on September, 11th, an icon of American capitalism was attacked and destroyed by Islamic Terrorists. The Twin Towers were not only representative of New York City’s modern architecture, but they were the symbol of America’s powerhouse economy, built in a country of freedom and liberty.

That was before – this is now:

Because of two Jihadist pilots, we are no longer the country we were before that day. Many of our freedoms have been infringed and virtually wiped out of our everyday life. From warrantless wiretaps to TAS’ groping searches, Americans can no longer feel free to say what they please or go long distances unmolested on airplanes. Loved ones can no longer walk to the airport gates to say goodbye to their families or friends. Our “open-door” immigration policy is still in effect and more and more terrorists have been infiltrating our country. Our Southern Border is insecure. Islamic Jihadist literature has been found in the washes used by Coyotes that bring in illegals in Arizona. Al Qaeda has set up an enclave in Mexico and established terrorist training camps there.

Historically, Muslims build mosques on the sites of their greatest conquests and they plan to do so again. Our Politically Correct government is willing to give the organization that wishes to build a mosque close to the site of Ground Zero, a sacred place of history for Americans, the money that they need to build the Muslim abomination.

We are still under attack.

The result of their attack is pictured below:

On the 10th anniversary of this vile and repulsive attack, let us take time to remember those who died there, the people in the buildings who jumped from the floors above the collapsed stairwells, the first responders who lost their lives trying to save the lives of others. Remember the families who lost loved ones that day and may not have any portion of their remains. Let us take time to pray for them.

And let us take the time to dedicate ourselves to
NEVER AGAIN!

Boy Scouts of America Honors Anniversary of 9/11 Through Service and Remembrance

Boy scouts

In recognition of 10-year anniversary, Scout Surge 9/11 encourages units to serve communities and watch the film New York Says Thank You

IRVING, Texas, Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — For more than a century, the Boy Scouts of America has honored the United States during times of remembrance—encouraging all members to serve and contribute to the common good. Leading up to Sept. 11, when the United States of America marks the 10-year anniversary of one of the darkest days in the nation’s history, the Boy Scouts of America will once again honor the country through focused acts of service as part of Scout Surge 9/11.

Between Sept. 1 and Sept. 10, in communities throughout the nation, Scouts are encouraged to “surge” by undertaking service projects to honor those affected by the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Scout units will participate in a variety of activities ranging from American flag retirement ceremonies to projects that recognize and assist local first responders in honoring the memory of the first responders and others who sacrificed so much on 9/11.

“For the past 100 years, in times of trial, triumph, and remembrance, millions of Scouts have honored our nation through service,” Chief Scout Executive Bob Mazzuca said. “Just as they did 10 years ago, when Scouts mobilized and collected more than 150,000 bottles of water for ground zero rescue workers, our Scouts are encouraged to surge into action and complete focused service projects in remembrance ofSept. 11, 2001.”

New York Says Thank You FoundationOn Sept. 11, Scout units will invite their local communities to remember the 10th anniversary of the events by gathering to watch the movie New York Says Thank You. Started in 2003 at the suggestion of a 5-year-old boy, each year around the 9/11 anniversary, the New York Says Thank You Foundation sends hundreds of volunteers from New York City along with disaster survivors from across the country to help rebuild communities recovering from disaster. The movie chronicles the group’s efforts and features the group helping rebuild the Little Sioux Scout Ranch in Iowa, which was devastated by a 2008 tornado.

“The BSA is committed to improving the lives of young people, families, communities, and the nation—with an emphasis on service,” said Jeff Parness, founder of the New York Says Thank You Foundation. “New Yorkers will never forget what people all across the United States did for us in the days, weeks, and months following 9/11. We are proud to work with the Scouts with the shared goal of honoring and remembering the events of Sept. 11, 2001.”

Scouts are encouraged to use social media to spread the word of their projects in their local communities and beyond. They also can post service project ideas and event pictures on www.scoutsurge911.org or their council’s Facebook page. Scouts looking for additional ideas and ways to make an impact can find more information on www.actionamerica.com. More information concerning New York Says Thank You is available at www.newyorksaysthankyoumovie.com.

The Legacy of Margaret Sanger: A Black Holocaust

The Legacy of Margaret Sanders

Background

 

      Margaret Sanger (1879-1966, though her birth year is sometimes listed as 1883) has gone down in history as a worker for women’s health rights.  Her mother birthed 11 children suffering with the birth of each new child. Margaret became a nurse and worked with the poor on the Lower East Side of New York City. There she saw first hand the results of unplanned and unwanted pregnancies. These were Margaret’s motivating factors for her activism concerning the importance of women’s lives, health and birth control. Margaret is even credited with inventing the term “birth control.” She is well known as the founder of Planned Parenthood, a major provider of women’s health care, including abortion.

     

      The Comstock Act of 1873 had outlawed the dispersal of information and materials to promote birth control across the country. Because she saw women suffering not only through childbirth, but living in poverty due to large families, she began distributing birth control information and devices in 1912. This is when she gave up nursing to devote herself to the struggle of informing women about choices in procreation. She also started to write articles in a Socialist newspaper, The Call. She collected articles and information for this newspaper concerning women’s health issues.

     

      In 1913 she went to Europe. Upon her return, she established a newspaper, Woman Rebel. At this time, she was indicted for distributing obscenities through the mail under the Comstock Act and she left America for Europe. The court dropped the charges and she returned to America to create The National Birth Control League in 1914. When she returned to Europe, she turned the workings of this foundation over to Mary Ware Dennett and other prominent women in the birth control movement. Ms. Dennett and Sanger later became opponents in the birth control movement, Sanger being the more ruthless and controlling personality while Dennett was civil and worked through legal channels to bring about change within the United States concerning birth control.

      In 1916, the first birth control clinic in the United States was set up by Sanger. For her many protests and resulting arrests against the established philosophy and laws concerning birth control, she spent time in “workhouses.” Her activities led to the laws being changed and doctors being able to not only talk to their patients about birth control, but to be able to pass out devices to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

     

      When Sanger published Birth Control Review in 1917, she wrote an editorial, “How Shall We Change the Law?” pointing out the law in New York State that outlawed doctors and other health providers from distributing contraceptives and items that prevented pregnancy except in those cases that the medicine would cure a disease. In this editorial, she proposed a bill to the Assembly of New York State that would free doctors to enlighten women and distribute contraceptive devices to them. The proposed bill would include Doctors, nurses and midwives. The bill was not adopted.

     

      Ms. Sanger continued to be energetic in the area of informing people about Women’s Health and in 1927 she helped to launch the first World Population Conference in Geneva, Switzerland. This organization went through many growing pains including the American Birth Control League which emerged as the Planned Parenthood Federation in 1942.

 

The Birth of Eugenics

 

      Eugenics as a stated theory was based in evolution. In fact, in 1883 Darwin’s cousin, the English scientist Sir Francis Galton, first coined the phrase from the Greek words for “good birth.” His belief was that “undesirables” of the human race should be stopped from procreation due to their hereditary impact on natural selection. Genetics was not fully understood at this time and Darwin’s theory of Evolution introduced not only natural selection, but survival of the fittest. Galton created a science from these theories.

     

      Galton established a research chair in eugenics at the University of London in 1904. In 1905, Dr. Alfred Ploetz and Dr. Ernst Rudin founded the Gesellschaft f½r Rassenhygiene or Society of Race-Hygiene in Germany. The First International Eugenics Congress was held was held at London University in 1912. Representatives came from a number of nations, and this congress demonstrated the growing strength of the movement especially in England, Germany and the United States.

     

      Eugenics has all but been eradicated from our history books and is just now being revived as worthy of historic studies. But in the early 1900’s, it was a very popular idea which was embraced by educators as well as intellectuals. Eugenics as a science was pervasive in our society at that time. It has left its vestigial footprint on our society and our philosophy. At the time eugenics was making its way through our educational system and our philosophical system, laws were made in several States that mandated forced sterilization. Eugenics was also used to point out “inferior” races and call for their elimination. The Negro was a prime target.

     

      I believe that Margaret Sanger learned the principles of eugenics while in nursing school as well as from the educated people she associated with in Europe of the early 1900’s.

 

 

 

 

Margaret Sanger and Eugenics

 

      Margaret Sanger wrote the following: “Birth control is thus the entering wedge for the Eugenic educator … the unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit’ is admittedly the greatest present menace to civilisation … The most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.” Sanger, Margaret, Birth Control Review, October 1921 p.5

     

      The driving force of the science of eugenics was social prejudice and often attributed social differences to genetics rather than as a product of race and class. In 1907, Indiana passed the first law mandating sterilization for “mental defectives.” In 1909, California passed laws mandating sterilization of people deemed unfit by the courts and social services. The result? Over 1600 “hereditarily diseased offspring” sterilized. And the number increased as the years went on.

     

      Sanger was not only a proponent of birth control, but was also an advocate of abortion. She was a speaker at a women’s branch of the KKK meeting in Silver Lake, New Jersey in 1929. There she extolled the proposal of limiting Black reproduction. A great deal of the fear of the KKK was a result of the freeing of slaves after the War Between the States. The KKK was an organization that purported the superiority of the white race. Also proposed by Sanger was the limiting of births to recent immigrants from Europe. These immigrants were mostly poor and illiterate.

     

      The following are some of her quotes concerning Blacks and immigrants:

 

On Blacks, immigrants and indigents:
“…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”  Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people.

On sterilization & racial purification:
Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial “purification,” couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger.

On the right of married couples to bear children:
Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her “Plan for Peace.” Birth Control Review, April 1932

On the purpose of birth control:
The purpose in promoting birth control was “to create a race of thoroughbreds,” she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)

On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:
“More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

On the extermination of Blacks:
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon

On abortion:
“Criminal’ abortions arise from a perverted sex relationship under the stress of economic necessity, and their greatest frequency is among married women. The Woman Rebel – No Gods, No Masters, May 1914, Vol. 1, No. 3.

On motherhood:
“I cannot refrain from saying that women must come to recognize there is some function of womanhood other than being a child-bearing machine. What Every Girl Should Know, by Margaret Sanger (Max Maisel, Publisher, 1915)

“The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)

On mandatory sterilization of the poor:
One of Sanger’s greatest influences, sexologist/eugenicist Dr. Havelock Ellis (with whom she had an affair, leading to her divorce from her first husband), urged mandatory sterilization of the poor as a prerequisite to receiving any public aid. The Problem of Race Regeneration, by Havelock Ellis, p. 65, in Margaret Sanger: Father of Modern Society, p. 18.

      She not only advocated birth control and abortion, but wanted it mandated for particular categories of people.

      Sanger’s appearance at the KKK meeting (I can only find reference to one meeting that she spoke at) resulted in invitations to speak at other KKK meetings. In her autobiography, she talks about her speech in Silver Lake, New Jersey. She describes how she received the invitation, the instructions she got on how to get to the site of the meeting, her surreptitous meeting with the driver of the car that transported her stealthily to the meeting place and how she waited for several hours before being invited into the room where the meeting was being held. She got along well with the women at this meeting. Though she did not develop her “Negro Program” until 1939, she was already framing it. No doubt, the women at the KKK assembly received her proposals with enthusiasm.

      In December of 1910, she wrote a letter Dr. Clarence Gamble and she referred to her scheme for the elimination of the Black race:

      “We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” (See Blessed Are The Barren The Social Policy of Planned Parenthood by Robert Marshall and Charles Donovan, Ignatius Press, 1991, pages 17-18.)

      Her reference to “minister” referred to her plan to reach out to pastors of different Christian denominations in order to convince them to adopt her agenda and to lead their flocks to the killing fields.      

      In 1939 when the organization “American Birth Control League” changed its name to the “Birth Control Federation of America,” Sanger created the “Negro Project” in its entirety. Margaret wanted to restrict the birth rate of the Black population through the façade of “better health” and “family planning.” Many Blacks of the elite Negro population, those who were better educated and well to do, were taken in by her rhetoric. The ABCL used Sanger’s “Birth Control Review” in order to promote their agenda through articles concerning eugenics.

      In 1929, the ABCL opened a birth control clinic in Harlem, a predominantly Black area of New York City. This was at the start of the Great Depression and Blacks were severely affected by high numbers of unemployment as well as being subjected to racial discrimination. Blacks looking for relief from their circumstances flocked to the clinic to receive birth control information and devices as well as treatment for health issues. The clinic was free to clients and was supported by many private foundations. Even though the Clinic worked with whites, it was founded to help the Black population of Harlem. From the clinic’s own records, the following were used to justify the clinic’s work with Blacks in Harlem:

…were segregated in an over-populated area (224,760 of 330,000 of greater New York’s Black population lived in Harlem during the late 1920s and 1930s);

…comprised 12 percent of New York City’s population, but accounted for 18.4 percent of New York City’s unemployment;

…had an infant mortality rate of 101 per 1000 births, compared to 56 among whites;

…had a death rate from tuberculosis—237 per 100,000—that was highest in central Harlem, out of all of New York City. The Harlem Clinic 1929 file, MSCLC.

      Sanger suggested that the solution to the difficulty Blacks found themselves in was to limit population growth and she suggested that the solution to poverty and degradation due to racial prejudice was birth control. Black civic groups in Harlem were convinced by Sanger that the solution to these problems was better health by reducing births in the Black residents in order to allow mothers to recover after giving birth physically and fathers financially. “With their cooperation, and the endorsement of The Amsterdam News (a prominent Black newspaper), Sanger established the Harlem branch of the Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau.” (Letter from Sanger to Dr. W. E. Burghardt DuBois, 11 November 1930, New York, MSCLC. DuBois served as director of research for the NAACP and as the editor of its publication, The Crisis, until 1934.) (http://www.citizenreviewonline.org/special_issues/population/the_negro_project.htm)

      Using well-known Black leaders, Sanger convinced the Black community in Harlem that birth control was the panacea to all their problems. Knowing that the Black population would be leery of white members being placed on an advisory council for the clinic, Sanger convinced esteemed members of the Black community to sit on the board.

      She also enlisted the largest church in Harlem, the Abyssinian Baptist Church, to endorse birth control as a means for Blacks to exit poverty. She was a speaker at a large gathering which resulted in condemnation of Dr. Adam Clayton Powell, Sr., the pastor of the church. The debates unleashed by the clinic and the meeting at the church resulted in open dialogue concerning birth control as a means to improve living conditions and exit poverty. There were educated Blacks that embraced eugenics. One of these was the prominent figure of Charles S. Johnson, the first Black president of Fisk University. He promoted “eugenic discrimination” among Blacks in order to lower the statistics of death for mothers and babies during childbirth as well as other diseases that permeated the community, and to improve Blacks’ economic conditions.  (Charles S. Johnson, “A Question of Negro Health,” The Birth Control Review, June 1932, 167-169.) Other prominent members of the Black community were swayed by the conversations resulting from these circumstances and they embraced the concepts promoted by Johnson, Sanger and Powell.

      With this legacy within the Black Community, Planned Parenthood has proven to be the vehicle for the extermination of the Black Race. Reverend Johnny M. Hunter, President of L.E.A.R.N. (Life Education and Resource Network), the largest Black Pro-Life organization in America, has stated:

“We do not want our people to perish because of ignorance. Ignorance and apathy has hindered the proper response to the main destroyer of our future and the child. The single biggest threat to the survival of children, especially children of color, is imposed death by induced abortion,” said Rev. Hunter. “The African American community alone has lost over 12,000,000 people due to this most racist act. In the United States, over 36,000,000 human beings have been unjustly destroyed and the numbers are getting worse by the addition of over 4,000 more deaths each day.” (http://www.operationrescue.org/archives/rev-johnny-hunter-named-operation-rescues-man-of-the-year/)

      In 1999 at a demonstration by Blacks on the steps of the Supreme Court protesting Brown vs. the Board of Education and Roe vs. Wade, Johnny M. Hunter, the organizer of the demonstration stated: “We have become victims of genocide by our own hands.” Reverend Hunter and his organization were protesting the lopsided higher numbers of abortions in the Black community.

      The decision in Brown vs. Board of Education caused Black children to be bussed out of their neighborhood schools in order to “integrate” the educational system. The results of bussing are evident in our scholastic statistics. Many Blacks believe that children were receiving a better education in the predominantly Black schools and that bussing has caused racial tension. Roe vs. Wade legalized abortion in all states making it easier and cheaper for women to obtain abortions.

      There are people who believe that abortion is a civil right under our Constitution and this misconception has muddied the waters of the discussion within our legal system concerning abortion and the right to life.” Civil rights’ doesn’t mean anything without a right to life!” declared Hunter.

Sanger and Other Eugenicists

      The ideology of eugenics permeated the higher levels of society in the white and Black community of America and Europe. Sanger is connected historically to many eugenicists of her time, the most well known being Hitler, who admired her policies. When Jews were desperately trying to enter the USA to avoid Hitler’s showers and ovens, Sanger was supportive of an Immigration Law that would reduce the quota numbers of immigrants. Progressives such as Woodrow Wilson, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR were proponents of eugenics. George Bernard Shaw defended Hitler and called for the development of a gas to exterminate undesirables in Germany 10 years before the Nazis did just that. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., one of the most distinguished Justices on the Supreme Court, in Buck vs. Bell stated “Three generations of imbeciles is enough,” and Carrie Buck was involuntarily sterilized. Many prominent people of the time embraced eugenics as a beneficial ideology to be put into practice whenever and where ever possible.

Statistics Related to Black Abortions

      Ruth Bader Ginsberg, a Supreme Court Justice, made the following comment on the Roe vs. Wade decision:

      “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

      Today there is an appointed official that holds Margaret Sanger as an icon of progressivism. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, was awarded the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood in 2009. Upon receiving the award from Planned Parenthood in 2009, she stated:

 

      “The 20th century reproductive rights movement, really embodied in the life and leadership of Margaret Sanger, was one of the most transformational in the entire history of the human race. It has changed the lives of tens of millions of women. It has changed attitudes and perceptions about women and our roles in society. It ushered in demographic and social changes that have brought us closer to gender equality than at any time.

      Yet we know that Margaret Sanger’s work here in the United States and certainly across our globe is not done. Here at home, there are still too many women who are denied their rights because of income, because of opposition, because of attitudes that they harbor. But around the world, too many women are denied even the opportunity to know about how to plan and space their families. They are denied the power to do anything about the most intimate of decisions.”

      “And when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.”


      The following comment was made by Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List, which is a Pro-Life organization in response to Hillary Clinton’s pronouncement:

      “If Secretary Clinton were fully aware of the eugenicist past of Margaret Sanger, I cannot believe that she would be accepting an award in her name. It is in fact shocking that the award still bear’s Sanger’s name.”

      Hillary Clinton has made birth control one of the major thrusts of her State Department. While foreign countries are building weapons of war and potential enemies are gearing up to go into outer space, women’s reproductive rights has taken a front row seat in our embassies.

      Planned Parenthood clinics are responsible for the majority of abortions in America. 78% of their clinics are in the poorer areas of cities, mostly populated by Blacks. The Black population is on the decline and is the only minority that is not replacing itself. A 2006 Census report indicates the 1.97 replacement rate is below the 2.1 rate that is necessary for restoration of the population.   More and more Black babies are being aborted than born. In New York City for every 1000 live births, there are 1489 babies that are aborted.  

       The percentage of Black abortions in the country is 35% even though the percentage of the population that is Black is only 13%; it is deduced that Black women comprise 7% of the whole population. In other words, Blacks who make up only 1/8th of the population in America receive over 1/3rd of the abortions. According to the Guttmacher Institute, Black women abort their children at five times the rate of White women and twice the rate of Hispanics.

      Sanger’s and Planned Parenthood’s intended design through Sanger’s Negro Project is coming to fruition. Pro-Life Blacks are becoming more and more vocal about the abortion problem in their communities and they are becoming more aware of the role that Margret Sanger and Planned Parenthood have played in this genocide. President Lyndon B. Johnson, through his Great Society programs, has aided in the break up of the Black family which in turn has contributed to the high numbers of Blacks having abortions.

      “But this is a silent killer among African Americans. We don’t talk about it. Millions of African Americans – including the black media – don’t know the statistics on this. We think, abortion must be a thing for white people because they are the only ones talking about it.” (Day Gardner, director of the National Black Pro-Life Union)

Some of America’s Infrastructure has Made in China Stamped on it?

With unemployment in California at 11.9% why on earth would they want to “outsource” the easiest jobs that can be created – construction jobs? The U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood had assured people in the U.S. that everything to do with all these infrastructure projects will be built using American Made products. Why is China building a section of the eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge?

$400 million dollars cheaper is why. California officials estimate that they will save at least $400 million by having so much of the work done in China. California issued bonds to finance the project, and will look to recoup the cost through tolls.

It turns out that China is getting lots of work here in the U.S. in New York City alone, Chinese companies have won contracts to help renovate the subway system, refurbish the Alexander Hamilton Bridge over the Harlem River and build a new Metro-North train platform near Yankee Stadium.

I sure hope with all these infrastructure projects that China is involved in are made better than “most” made in China products that I have ever seen – can you say CHEAP? I worked for years on a farm that my dad owns, I know how “cheap-made” China’s products are, same goes for Mexico. This is a major problem here in the U.S., it’s why the nation’s unemployment rate is a 9% average or more.

I may complain a lot about all this money being basically wasted on different things. But I am going to complain more when my tax money is going for things that we can make here in the U.S. that would give jobs to American workers. I think everyone would agree that if our tax money is going to be spent – then it needs to be spent in America – not another country.

When you look at the entire picture we will be losing more than construction jobs on this “China made” California bridge. It has to be transported from China by a Chinese boat and fuel for the boat will be from China. I could go on listing several things that America has lost by California outsourcing the construction of this bridge – but I won’t I think you get the picture.

Zhenhua the Chinese company building the bridge put 3,000 employees to work on the project: steel-cutters, welders, polishers and engineers. The company built the main bridge tower, which was shipped in mid-2009, and a total of 28 bridge decks — the massive triangular steel structures that will serve as the roadway platform. That is not all – to ensure the bridge meets safety standards, 250 employees and consultants working for the state of California and American Bridge/Fluor also took up residence in Shanghai.

We here in the United States must really owe China a lot of money. It is bad enough that we borrow money from China to give to other country’s – that sometimes don’t even like us – but we are giving them our jobs too! This needs to stop, I know we can build and manufacture these products here in the U.S. – it may be a little higher – but the quality is much better – and plus the money stays in this country.

Anthony Weiner: Self-Destruction By Pride And Arrogance

I write with a heavy heart today. I sit watching the train wreck that has become Anthony Weiner’s life and my heart aches. First and foremost- yes, I most definitely believe he should have stepped down, and, as my colleague said, it’s about time! But though I agree that he should have stepped down, it is very painful to watch a person self-destruct.

I’m also in a rare spot today in that I find myself wholeheartedly agreeing with Alan Colmes. He was on Fox News giving his commentary after Mr. Weiner’s news conference, and he said that Mr. Weiner should have been given the opportunity to speak without being heckled by his constituents. I agree with Mr. Colmes. I honestly do not know if that has ever happened before today. While I completely understand the anger of his constituents, he should have been given the opportunity to speak without the heckling from the audience. Call me a softy if you will, but it was heart-breaking to watch.

Yes, he has dished out the heckling himself. He has been nothing but arrogant every time I have seen him on Fox News.  I guess it’s true- what goes around comes around. I still cannot relish in what he is going through. I am a firm believer that you do what is right, no mater what has been done to you. It’s not always easy, but doing what is right means being the bigger person. You know the saying… “two wrongs don’t make a right.”

There is a Bible Scripture that I have been praying over for several days now, regarding the situation with Anthony Weiner.

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:18

If only Mr. Weiner would have told the truth from the beginning, I strongly believe things would be differently. Though I personally believe he should have stepped down even at that point, I realize that the majority of the American people do not see things such as “inappropriate” texts, emails, tweets, etc. as an offense worthy of resigning.  I just personally believe that someone in a leadership position should be held to higher standards. If you fall during your leadership tenure, you should step down. I don’t care if you are a politician, preacher, or leader in another type of organization. To me, being in leadership means you have exceptional standards and qualities. It’s not something you are “owed” or “entitled” to.

The truth is we all have our issues. We all make mistakes. I believe that if we face up to the things we’ve done, and truly work towards making ourselves better, we can get past the worst of the worst. The cover-up is always worse than the actual offense, no matter what it is. It’s one of the number one lessons we try to teach our kids. If you’ve made a mistake, tell the truth. Don’t try to hide it.

Though I completely disagree with Anthony Weiner on probably everything he stands for politically, socially and otherwise, my heart goes out to him. Yes, he has done this to himself. But I cannot celebrate in his demise. I am praying for both he and his wife during this very painful time in their lives. Sadly, so much has been destroyed all because of his lies. I pray that his wife will find it in her heart to forgive him; I pray that the American people will find it in their hearts to forgive him; and above all, I pray that he will find it in his heart to forgive himself. I hope this sad situation will not be for naught, and that he will learn from his mistakes and grow to be a better person.
