Just as he promised during the campaign, Donald Trump is in the process of dismantling the “many, many left-wing remnants of Obama’s term,” says Edward Woodson of LifeZette. He writes:
You have to admit: Liberals are good at playing the victim. Former President Obama’s executive amnesty hasn’t even been around along enough for the Supreme Court to declare it unconstitutional, but as President Donald Trump prepared to announce its end, you’d think the world was ending.
My favorite part was the CEOs, now thoroughly addicted to cheap labor, acting shocked and disappointed that Trump is following through on one of his biggest promises during the campaign.
“There’s no issue that’s more gut-wrenching for us,” one tech exec anonymously told Axios’ Mike Allen, adding that some companies are considering smuggling their illegal alien employees abroad. Here’s an idea: How about take the money you would spend on that and use it to increase the wages of your employees?
According to Christian News:
A prominent professing atheist group has sent a letter to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, urging him to stop sharing Bible verses on his official Twitter account, which they say violates the separation of Church and State.
The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent the letter on Aug. 22, noting that Rubio has tweeted over 60 Scriptures in the past three months. It asserted Rubio is violating the Constitution since he is posting the messages on what the group perceives as being a government-related account, not a private and personal account focusing on his home and family life.
Chip and Joanna Gaines are giving aid and lending support to fellow Texans. LifeZette reveals what the couple is doing to help:
Two television celebrities want their fellow Texans to know they “will always have your back.”
The “Fixer Upper” stars, Chip and Joanna Gaines, are selling T-shirts that read, “Texas Forever,” to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Because the Orpheum Theater in Memphis has decided to ax “Gone With the Wind” from its schedule, Zachery Lehman of LifeZette wonders what films will be targeted next. “The idea that art is supposed to be ‘sensitive’ and that we should simply scrub away past works is beyond worrisome,” cautioned Lehman. He writes:
A 34-year-old tradition has ended in Memphis, Tennessee, due to concerns about being “insensitive.”
The board of directors of the Orpheum Theater Group decided to end its once-frequent summer showings of the 1939 film “Gone with the Wind” this month, mostly due to social media outrage.
“As an organization whose stated mission is to ‘entertain, educate and enlighten the communities it serves,’ the Orpheum cannot show a film that is insensitive to a large segment of its local population,” said the board members in a statement.
“In my judgment,” said President Trump, “the previous Administration failed to identify a sufficient basis to conclude that terminating the Departments’ longstanding policy and practice would not hinder military effectiveness and lethality, disrupt unit cohesion, or tax military resources, and there remain meaningful concerns that further study is needed to ensure that continued implementation of last year’s policy change would not have those negative effects.” Kathryn Blackhurst of LifeZette has the story:
President Donald Trump directed the military Friday to reinstate its ban on admitting transgender individuals and fully implement the longstanding policy that former President Barack Obama had reversed near the end of his administration.
The Obama administration lifted the transgender ban in 2016, with Defense Secretary Ash Carter saying at the time that there are an estimated 2500 active duty service members who are transgender. In a directive issued to the Department of Defense, the president ordered the secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security to refrain from recruiting transgender individuals and cease allocating military funds to cover sexual reassignment surgeries for transitioning service members, unless they had already begun medical procedures.
Earlier this week CRN reported that all proceeds of the “uterus” emoji app in shades of millennial pink will go to abortion mill Planned Parenthood. “You can catch Ooti drinking cold brew, wasting time on the phone, and, of course, swiping.” So now The Washington Times reports that a Denver-based adult toy shop was established with the “sole mission” of supporting Planned Parenthood. Bradford Richardson has the story:
Ooti the uterus app
Supporters of Planned Parenthood are trying to boost the abortion giant’s shaky bottom line by selling sex toys, uterus-themed emojis and sex-positive wrapping paper.
The merchandise may be X-rated, but abortion opponents say it’s just another argument in favor of weaning Planned Parenthood off taxpayer funding.
“Planned Parenthood from the beginning has been the recipient of private charitable donations and foundation donations,” said Jay Richards, executive editor of conservative news website The Stream. “If you look at all of the corporate donations they have, it’s staggering. Even other nonprofits, like the Susan G. Komen foundation, which deals with breast cancer, give Planned Parenthood funding. And now, apparently, we have sex toy shops.” [emphasis added]
Why would Ole Miss, a university dedicated to promoting goodness and beauty to young people, invite a known pothead whose lyrics celebrate the sexualization of women and glorify alcohol and drug use, as the headliner at their beautiful new 10,000 seat basketball arena during Welcome Week? Lee Habeeb of LifeZette has the story:
It’s the first week of school in the college town of Oxford, Mississippi, home of the University of Mississippi — otherwise known as Ole Miss. Returning college students, a good number of them newcomers to the school, got the full treatment this past week about all manner of things, some of which no doubt had to do with the usual sensitivity and tolerance training now common at most universities. And some of which had to do with alcohol awareness, public safety, and the Ole Miss Creed, which covers the subject of public decency, among other topics.
According to LifeZette, next on the list will be America’s Founding Fathers, great presidents, and Catholic priests. Edmund Kozak has the story:
In the wake of shocking violence that erupted after far-left and far-right protesters clashed at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia the Left has only increased its calls to remove all traces of the Confederacy from American public life.
Critics of these efforts, including President Trump, argue that it isn’t wise to “erase history.” They claim that if we take down Confederate monuments on the grounds that they represent slavery or might be considered “racist” by some people in the modern era, then we open the door to removing far more than just the statues honoring the Confederacy.
Dr Hruz, who is an endocrinologist and Associate Professor at the Washington University School of Medicine, warns that “there are many other components of being a man or a woman.” The Christian Institute has the story:
Fallon Fox, transgender fighter in MMA
Transsexual athletes who compete against women are “feminized males rather than true females”, an American professor has warned.
Speaking to Fox News, Dr Paul Hruz cautioned that “there are many aspects of fundamental biology that don’t change” when athletes take hormone-suppressing drugs.
Transsexual people often take these drugs or have hormone injections to change their physical appearance.
According to Washington Times, Oregon insurers must provide 100 percent coverage for abortions without co-pays or deductibles:
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has signed a landmark bill to provide free abortions for all, including illegal immigrants, by requiring insurance companies to cover the procedures and putting taxpayers on the hook for the tab.
Tuesday’s long-awaited signing of House Bill 3391, approved by the State Legislature July 5 with no Republican votes, triggered a torrent of criticism from conservatives along with praise from the pro-choice movement.
“Thank Kate Brown for signing the nation’s most progressive reproductive health bill into law today!” NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon said in a statement.
Laura Ingraham asked the question. Breitbart has the story:
Monticello, plantation of President Thomas Jefferson
Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham, editor of LifeZette, denounced protesters removing a statue of a Confederate soldier in Durham, North Carolina, a day earlier.
Ingraham warned there could be other symbols from the past that could go next if this trend were to continue.
“This is not about racial healing or racial unity when you see property being destroyed,” Ingraham said. “That’s not what it’s about. It’s about the eradication of history and an acknowledgment that we had really difficult, horrible moments in our country’s history that we were able to overcome. And at the same time, we do give respect to the dead. I mean, all of our war dead. We respect them. Not respect everything they stood for, but respect the fact that, when the time came, they stood up and fought for their views and this country.”
