Now or Never

In its first editorial five decades ago, The National Review urged thinking Americans to stand athwart history yelling “Stop!” Several weeks ago, The Weekly Standard told those of us concerned about the current mad rush toward Socialism, Globalism, and Amoralism, “Don’t Wince. Fight.” Clearly, it's now or never.

True Patriotism

Never Thought About It? Are You Kidding?

President Obama's Supreme Court nominee has said that she has "never considered whether an unborn child has any rights."

No really. I am not making this up. The person our president wants to serve on the nation's highest court says that she has never really given any consideration to the single most bedeviling civil rights issue of her generation. Oh my! What an admission!

In a conversation with Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), chairman of the Senate Steering Committee, Sonia Sotomayor also called into question the applicability of the Second Amendment. And while that is certainly disturbing news, the fact that this sitting federal judge, a confessing Catholic, has such a rigid, closed, ideological worldview that she has never even thought through the issue of abortion is stunningly horrific.

Sotomayor is either lying or evasive or irresponsible or all three together.

Not surprisingly, DeMint now questions whether the nominee has what he believes is required of a Supreme Court nominee--an "unwavering commitment to the Constitution and equal justice for all Americans." Umm, well, yeah. I guess so. Let's just hope there are enough other Senators who display a modicum of epistemological self-consciousness to stand steadfast in opposition to this nomination.

Bad Choices

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s highest honor—the 2009 Margaret Sanger Award in Houston on March 27, 2009 at a gala, which took place just a few blocks from the construction site of America’s largest-ever abortion facility. Clinton was lauded as a “champion of women’s health and rights throughout her public service career.”

Planned Parenthood is of course, an organization whose founder Margaret Sanger embraced ideological Eugenics and targeted “the unfit” for “extinction.” Recently, Planned Parenthood has been involved in serial statutory rape cover-ups, fraud, and has petitioned for the construction of abortion clinics under false pretenses.

Its very name, the Margaret Sanger Award, is a tribute to a woman whose whole life’s mission was to “build a race of thoroughbreds” and "eliminate human weeds." Planned Parenthood’s long campaign to promote unregulated abortion on request, celebration of sexual libertinism, Eugenic racism, and revolutionary human callousness is, according to the Family Research Council, "the worst foreign policy message our nation could send."

Agreed. Alas, now the insidious organization has crowned the Secretary of State as their anointed messenger.
