Thursday, June 6th, 2019

 

I am posting this article on our conservative women’s forum website   under the category Culture Rot. The Democrat Party is rotting at its core and a number of Republicans have also lost their moral compass too.  Disgusting !   Thanks to Jeff Miller for sharing this article.     Please note:  This was a difficult article to copy and paste as there are several videos in the article so I suggest you click on the link provided to read the entire article and view the videos.      Where are the liberals who pride themselves on being compassionate and caring?    Nancy    

House fails to override Cooper’s veto of abortion bill

By Matthew Burns, WRAL.com senior producer/politics editor, & Laura Leslie, WRAL Capitol Bureau chief

RALEIGH, N.C. — After weeks of delay, House Republicans on Wednesday failed in their attempt to override Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of the “born alive” abortion bill.

The House voted 67-53 after almost an hour of emotional debate to override the veto, falling five votes short of the three-fifths majority needed for an override.

Senate Bill 359, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, would make it a felony for a doctor not to provide care for an infant born after a botched abortion. It also would create a duty for other health care professionals to report any such failure to act.

Lawmakers passed the measure in April, but Cooper quickly vetoed it, calling it “an unnecessary interference between doctors and their patients” because state law already protects newborns.

Rep.

, R-Carteret. insisted Wednesday that isn’t the case as she pleaded for an override.

“Babies born from an abortion are not protected in our statutes,” McElraft said. “Why should those babies not have the same rights as a baby born naturally?”

A number of override supporters argued that the bill isn’t about abortion rights, only about human decency.

“We’re called to be kind and loving. That’s all we’re asking,” said Rep.

, R-Pitt, the only practicing physician in the House. “Not rendering aid is an intentional act.”

“You can be the most strident pro-choice supporter and vote for this bill,” agreed House Speaker

GAY PRIDE EVENT – DURHAM CHARTER SCHOOL – FEATURES DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR

Friday, May 10th, 2019

 

This information is especially upsetting  to me as two of my grandsons attend this charter school in Durham, North Carolina.   I am posting this article on our website under Culture Rot !!!  Please share with your email lists.   Nancy

DURHAM CHARTER SCHOOL TO HOLD GAY PRIDE EVENT FEATURING DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR
by A.P. Dillion    May 6, 2019
The Central Park School for Children sent an email to staff this week announcing their first “Pride & Liberation Event” to be held on May 13th. The school will hold LGBTQ themed “mini-lessons” and activities in all K-8 classes during the week prior to the event.

Staff was given these reasons for children as young as 5 being exposed to sexually charged LGBTQ materials for a week straight in the classroom:

1.) Increased visibility for queer members of the community, with a focus on centering queer People of Color. 
2.) Education on race, gender, queer history, and intersectionality, as well as advocacy, contributing to spaces of inclusiveness and liberation, and upstanding/anti-bullying. 
3.) Challenging common misconceptions and the increasing instances of exclusionary, demeaning, and threatening language and actions amongst students, disproportionately affecting students of Color, LGBTQ students, and female students.

North Carolina’s sexual education instruction does not begin until 7th grade.

A TALE OF TWO MICHIGANS

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

 

Ever wonder why the Far Left Marxists continually attack religion, marriage and traditional values ?  These traditional values and institutions   are the glue that keeps communities healthy and prosperous.  Marxists  do not want healthy and happy communities.  They want desperate and unhappy people who will be drawn to their siren call of equality for all.     This is an interesting article that  draws a comparison between the prosperous Grand Rapids area of Michigan and the struggling Detroit and Flint, Michigan areas.   Nancy  

THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER

A tale of two Michigans

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids and Detroit are at opposite ends of Michigan. While both cities and their broader environs have been tossed by the rises and falls of the automotive industry, the two ends of the state have generally moved in opposite directions. In the west, Grand Rapids and nearby Holland have thrived. In the east, Detroit and Flint have struggled. At the same time, the rural counties in central Michigan have collapsed, economically and socially.

Why the divergent paths?

If you’ve been to Rust Belt towns — maybe you covered Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign — you’ll be shocked as you drive around Holland and Grand Rapids. The downtowns are bustling. On the outskirts, you’ll find a small manufacturer around every turn. Grand Rapids’ unemployment has been below 4 percent for most of the past year, and it has been below 5 percent for most of the past 5 years. Holland hasn’t seen unemployment above 5 percent since mid-2014.

It’s not that they haven’t had their downturns. Western Michigan has a long reputation as a supplier for the automakers near Detroit. When GM bleeds, the pain is felt at both ends of I-96. But some places bounce back from economic body blows better than other places.

Imagine you’re a business owner in 1983 or 2009. You want to set up a business, and Michigan appeals to you for one reason or another. Statewide unemployment is around 15 percent. Economics would tell you that’s a good thing from the employer’s perspective: A greater supply of available labor means lower wages.

Obviously, employers have chosen Western Michigan over, say, Detroit or Mecosta County. Why?

MARXIST FEMINISM’S RUINED LIVES

Tuesday, March 26th, 2019

 

 

This article was written in 2014 but is even more relevant today as we can plainly see how  the seeds of destructive feminism are now in full bloom   One very glaring example is the extreme late term abortion bills that were just passed and celebrated in several states by Democrats.
Thanks to Frank  Roche for sharing this article with us.  Nancy

    It’s completely woven throughout the fabric of The Democratic Party. It’s not the Dems of your grandfathers….not by a very long shot! It’s been entirely taken over by the radical Marxist Left which is made up of ideals and ideas which could not be more antipathetic to everything for which America stands. Period. We’ve been invaded from within. Our largest and deadliest Trojan Horses are the Universities. We did not win the Cold War. We’ve been snookered by clever operators. They took over our children and our media and that was that!

     

    “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”  Winston Churchill wrote this over a century ago.

    During my junior year in high school, the nuns asked about our plans for after we graduated. When I said I was going to attend State University, I noticed their disappointment.  I asked my favorite nun, “Why?” She answered, “That means you’ll leave four years later a communist and an atheist!”

    What a giggle we girls had over that. “How ridiculously unsophisticated these nuns are,” we thought. Then I went to the university and four years later walked out a communist and an atheist, just as my sister Katie had six years before me.

    Sometime later, I was a young divorcee with a small child. At the urging of my sister, I relocated to NYC after spending years married to an American executive stationed in Southeast Asia. The marriage over, I was making a new life for my daughter and me.  Katie said, “Come to New York.  We’re making revolution! Some of us are starting the National Organization of Women and you can be part of it.”

    I hadn’t seen her for years.  Although she had tormented me when we were youngsters, those memories were faint after my Asian traumas and the break-up of my marriage.  I foolishly mistook her for sanctuary in a storm. With so much time and distance between us, I had forgotten her emotional instability.

    And so began my period as an unwitting witness to history. I stayed with Kate and her lovable Japanese husband, Fumio, in a dilapidated loft on The Bowery as she finished her first book, a PhD thesis for Columbia University, “Sexual Politics.”

    It was 1969. Kate invited me to join her for a gathering at the home of her friend, Lila Karp. They called the assemblage a “consciousness-raising-group,” a typical communist exercise, something practiced in Maoist China.  We gathered at a large table as the chairperson opened the meeting with a back-and-forth recitation, like a Litany, a type of prayer done in Catholic Church. But now it was Marxism, the Church of the Left, mimicking religious practice:

    “Why are we here today?” she asked.
    “To make revolution,” they answered.
    “What kind of revolution?” she replied.
    “The Cultural Revolution,” they chanted.
    “And how do we make Cultural Revolution?” she demanded.
    “By destroying the American family!” they answered.
    “How do we destroy the family?” she came back.
    “By destroying the American Patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.
    “And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.
    “By taking away his power!”
    “How do we do that?”
    “By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.
    “How can we destroy monogamy?”

    Their answer left me dumbstruck, breathless, disbelieving my ears.  Was I on planet earth?  Who were these people?

    “By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution and homosexuality!” they resounded.

HOW THE LEFT ACCOMPLISHES RADICAL CHANGE

Monday, March 4th, 2019

 

To understand what is behind the Democrat’s lurch to the Far Left, you have to think like a Marxist !  Read on !!!  Thanks to Dee Sams for sharing  Nancy

THE FEDERALIST

How The Left Tricks People Into Thinking Socialism Is Plausible

If you want to effect radical change that politicians will vote for, don’t try to convince the politicians directly, but shift what is considered socially acceptable by legitimizing insane ideas.
By William F. Marshall     William F. Marshall has been an intelligence analyst and investigator in the government, private, and non-profit sectors for more than 30 years. He is a senior investigator for Judicial Watch, Inc. (The views expressed are the author’s alone, and not necessarily those of Judicial Watch.)
William F. Marshall

By William F. Marshall

What on earth has happened to the Democratic Party? Even by liberal standards, the policies the left now advocates appear insane. To say they are an order of fries short of a Happy Meal is an insult to McDonald’s.

I’m used to childishness from the Democratic Party, but something is very wrong in the Land of Unicorns and Fairy Dust. Is all of this just the usual hyper-liberal reaction to a Republican presidency, or is there something more insidious and dangerous at work? The latter may be the case, in the form of something called the Overton Window Principle. Let’s recap the last several weeks in Lala-Land.

Consider the “Green New Deal” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez supports. Her resolution before Congress calls for America to entirely divest itself of fossil fuels within ten years. This is such a ludicrous proposal that anyone with a scintilla of common sense or over the age of 25 should burst out laughing when informed of it.

A Frequently Asked Questions page that appeared on Ocasio-Cortez’s website before it was taken down actually said: “We set a goal to get to that net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast…” That is a real quote from an actual document posted to a bona fide congresswoman’s real-life website.

Yes, it’s uproariously stupid, funny, and deserving of ridicule by Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Chris Plante, and all the other entertaining commentators on conservative talk radio. Ocasio-Cortez is an endless source of fun, and I hope there’s a microphone nearby every time she opens her mouth. May she be the one Democrat who has a long and voluble career in Washington.

But here’s the concerning part: as of a week ago, 67 adult members of Congress signed on to support Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. Moreover, her ridiculous plan has been mirrored by a Senate resolution sponsored by a wizened, crusty old Democrat machine politician, Sen. Edward Markey, who has decades of legislative experience and surely knows how absurd the Green New Deal’s provisions are.

The Method Behind the Madness

So what gives? Has Markey lost his marbles? Not only that, have all the other Democrat luminaries running for president who have endorsed the GND—like Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobuchar—lost their minds as well?

It’s within the realm of possibility that Donald Trump has finally succeeded in snapping the tenuous hold these leftist politicians have on reality. But it might be explained by the Overton Window theory.

MULTICULTURALISM / CULTURAL MARXISM

Thursday, February 28th, 2019

 

This is an excellent article and the amazing thing is that it was written in 2007; twelve years ago  and we are seeing first hand how successful Cultural Marxism / Multiculturalism  has been in polarizing this nation and infecting our youth and our institutions  with their ideology.
  The information in this  article  is so crystal clear to  conservatives but yet the liberals and Democrats  can’t seem to recognize how  this ideology has taken over their way of thinking.   We conservatives need to stand strong against this  Marxist  onslaught.  Cultural Marxism/Multiculturalism was designed to weaken Christian countries by undermining our traditional cultures that have kept us strong and prosperous.    Please share with your email lists as we need to understand how Multiculturalism originated and how dangerous it is.  “Know thy enemy” !       Nancy 

AMERICAN THINKER
CULTURAL MARXISM
February 15, 2007

Cultural Marxism

There are two misconceptions held by many Americans.  The first is that communism ceased to be a threat when the Soviet Union imploded.  The second is that the New Left of the Sixties collapsed and disappeared as well.  “The Sixties are dead,” wrote columnist George Will (“Slamming the Doors,” Newsweek, Mar. 25, 1991)
Because the New Left lacked cohesion it fell apart as a political movement.  However, its revolutionaries reorganized themselves into a multitude of single issue groups.  Thus we now have for example, radical feminists, black extremists, anti-war ‘peace’ activists, animal rights groups, radical environmentalists, and ‘gay’ rights groups.  All of these groups pursue their piece of the radical agenda through a complex network of organizations such as the Gay Straight Lesbian Educators Network (GSLEN), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), People for the American Way, United for Peace and Justice, Planned Parenthood, Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and Code Pink for Peace.
Both communism and the New Left are alive and thriving here in America.  They favor code words: tolerance, social justice, economic justice, peace, reproductive rights, sex education and safe sex, safe schools, inclusion, diversity, and sensitivity.  All together, this is Cultural Marxism disguised as multiculturalism.

LEFTIST IDEOLOGY PUSHED ON GIRL SCOUTS

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019

 

Its a sad state that scouting (both for boys and girls) is in now.  Indoctrination to the Leftist dogma   is rampant now everywhere we look – education at all levels, churches, and now scouting are infected.  All in the name of Social Justice which is another word for Socialism which is another word for Marxism.      Nancy

The Girl Scout organization continues to engage in left-wing political activism, exposing young girls to liberal politicians and promoting their ideology.

“Since the 2016 Presidential election, the Girl Scout organization has placed an increasing focus on grooming young voters and future voters by sponsoring and/or promoting progressive political events, like the Teen Vogue Summit, Women’s March, and anti-Trump rallies,” Christy Volanski, co-editor at MyGirlScoutCouncil.com, told Breitbart News.

My Girl Scout Council, founded by Ann Saladin, performs research and provides documentation of the Girl Scout organization’s ties to progressive politics.

“Given Girl Scouts’ membership woes, it’s a bit surprising that the organization continues to isolate conservatives by promoting polarizing political figures and activists like Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Michelle Obama, Andrew Cuomo and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” Volanski added.

The Girl Scouts’ G.I.R.L. Agenda 2018 emphasized the need to “mobilize girls” and urged “leading change through civic action.” The organization praised those women and girls who were politically active, advancing a girl-first agenda.

On its blog post that celebrated 2018, the “Year of the G.I.R.L.,” GirlScouts.org touted how its girl members “were inspired, prepared, and mobilized to take civic action” by politicians such as Democrats Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and Jill Biden.

The Girl Scouts boasted that socialist Ocasio-Cortez is an alumna of its organization and reported she attributes much of what got her elected to Congress to being a part of that organization:

When two people share the same goals, they can disagree – even strongly disagree – and still have a productive discussion about how to reach those shared objectives. As comedian and author Owen Benjamin explains, the problem with America today is we no longer share the same goals, and that’s tearing us apart.
