  2. Meanwhile, actual “science” continues to let down women and prospective parents. You know, in case they actually do get concerned about actual inaccurate info getting to pregnant women, they could look at the obvious.

    “Women Are Aborting Their Babies Based On Incorrect Prenatal Test Results

    Depending on the risk profile, as many as half of the positive results of some types of tests could be false. This is causing mothers to abort perfectly healthy babies.”

    “Making the rounds on Facebook is news that an Irish couple aborted their preborn child upon receipt of a positive test result for Edwards Syndrome, only to discover afterward that the baby was healthy. Edwards Syndrome causes life-threatening organ defects, an abnormally shaped head, and—if the child survives—developmental delays. It is usually fatal within the first year of a child’s life, often within the first several days after birth.

    The couple was told by medical professionals at the National Maternity Hospital that there was “no hope” for their baby, even though some people with Edwards Syndrome have gone on to live joyful lives despite their serious impediments. They were strongly encouraged to take advantage of Ireland’s newly legal abortion framework, and did so at 15 weeks’ gestation.

    As Live Action reported, the mother underwent chorionic villus sampling (CVS), in which cells from the placenta are sampled to screen for chromosomal abnormalities. According to reporting by the Irish Times, the test is “99% accurate,” and “in 0.15 per cent of cases, a false positive can occur.” Some may be shocked that a healthy baby could be aborted “by mistake.” A 0.15 percent false positive rate? That’s tiny, right? How could they have known?”

    “California Moves Forward on Plans Offering Free Healthcare for Illegal Immigrants Under 26

    Needs of legal Californians not as crucial as virtue signaling or resisting Trump.”

    “I noted that on his inauguration day, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a dramatic Medi-Cal expansion to cover young illegal immigrant adults.

    His dreams may become the California taxpayer’s nightmare thanks to the state legislature.

    Some low-income adults in California living in the country illegally will soon get their health benefits paid for by taxpayers.

    Democrats in the state Legislature on Sunday agreed to make adults between the ages of 19 and 25 eligible for the state’s Medicaid program. Not everyone will get those benefits, only people whose incomes are low enough to qualify for the program. State officials estimate the program will cover an additional 90,000 people at a cost of $98 million.

    “California believes that health is a fundamental right,” said state Sen. Holly Mitchell, a Los Angeles Democrat who led the budget negotiations.

    One benefit of living in a Democrat-run state is that I don’t have to wonder what will happen next. We are going to ride the Virtue Signal Time Bomb!”

    “Mark Levin appeared at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California on Saturday night. The event was a celebration of his new, bestselling book, Unfreedom of the Press. It was a glorious evening. The auditorium was packed with several thousand fans with an overflow crowd in another room. Levin delivered not a speech but a conversation. John Heubusch, the director of the Reagan Library introduced Levin then the two of them sat down. Heubusch asked questions and Levin answered in his usual inimitable fashion. The crowd loved it. But as we were all sitting in that spectacular library in California, the state of our state was the initial topic of discussion. How did this state, once the envy of all others, become the pathetic, indebted loser state it is today? The answer is simple, single-party Democratic rule. Levin worked for the Reagan Justice Department and, like everyone else in the room, reveres the man. But the state that Reagan once governed (1967-1975) has become the prime national example of the abject failure of Democratic policies, all of them. Jerry Brown’s imaginary high-speed rail that was to initially run from Bakersfield to Merced in Central California is a bust. The cost was projected to be $77b but has forecast to be $98b! It most likely will never be completed. Billions have been wasted.

    Our state debt is over $1.5t. We have the highest gasoline prices in the nation. Oh, and we are a sanctuary state that protects all manner of illegal immigrants, no matter how serious the crimes they’ve committed. Think Jose Garcia Zanate who killed Kate Steinle. He had been deported seven times but was out and about on the streets of San Francisco with the blessings of SF law enforcement; they aim to protect the criminals at the expense of the law-abiding. ICE is the enemy in sanctuary cities and states, the thugs are victims.

    State taxes in California are the highest in the nation, as are our sales taxes. We fall nearly last in education. We have the most homeless, the most illegal migrants. The state spends $30.b on illegal immigration per year. Like all cities run by progressives, our entire state is a disaster of Democratic making. San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego have been overrun by homeless people, most of them drug addicted and/or mentally ill. Entire areas of these cities are befouled by used needles, feces, trash, garbage, rats and now diseases long-thought to be extinct in the West. Persons who work in downtown Los Angeles have contracted typhus! As true in other cites long run by Democrats (Chicago, Baltimore, Seattle, Detroit, Flint) it is the implementation of ridiculous utopian Marxist policies so beloved by progressives that has destroyed these once grand cities. Socialist strategies always fail. Democrats cheat, (ballot harvesting) are re-elected, and the state continues to decline. Venezuela is the current example of the massive failure of socialism on the world stage. What is happening there is beyond tragic; the people are starving in every sense of the word. But will our own Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez condemn socialism? Absolutely not. She, Bernie Sanders and their fellow travelers mean to take this country the way of Venezuela, the road California has already been on for too long; possibly too long to ever recover. This state is slowly becoming a third-world nation. But, as in Venezuela, the rich and politically powerful stay rich, keep their mansions and their private planes unperturbed by the devastation they generate.”

    Like I’ve been saying, this isn’t what people with legitimate claims do. Folks need to stop falling for the lies. This is a ministry opportunity? No, this is a massive fraud. The deportations should be on a massive scale as well.

    “Acting DHS Sec. McAleenan: 90% Of Families Arriving Recently At The Border Don’t Show Up For Hearings”

    “Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee today and took questions about the ongoing border crisis for two hours. During questioning by Senator Lindsey Graham, McAleenan revealed that recently conducted pilot study looking at family units found that 90% do not show up for their immigration court hearings. From Fox News:

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan how many asylum seekers coming across the southern border show up for their hearings.

    “It depends on demographic, the court, but we see too many cases where people are not showing up,” he said, telling Graham that DHS recently conducted a pilot program with family units.

    “Out of those 7,000 cases, 90 received final orders of removal in absentia, 90 percent,” he said.

    “90 percent did not show up?” Graham asked.

    “Correct, that is a recent sample from families crossing the border,” McAleenan clarified.

    The percentage of immigrants who show up to immigration court hearings has been a hot topic for the last year or so. Recent numbers (from 2015 and 2016) suggest the number who do not show up is around 40 percent. However, McAleenan appears to be talking about a new pilot study done recently which looks specifically at “family units.””

  7. Huh.

    When Roy Moore allegedly did this, it was the worst thing ever. Should destroy his political career they said. And they were right, it did.

    So why the double standard now from hypocritical Dems? This is way worse than the Moore allegations.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/virginia-democrat-charged-sex-minor-wins-state-primary

    “A Virginia Democrat, who was accused in 2014 of having sex with his teenage secretary he later married, won the Democratic primary on Tuesday for the state’s 16th Senate District.

    Joe Morrissey, a former state legislator, defeated incumbent senator Rosalyn Dance by over 10 points despite Gov. Ralph Northam endorsing her in the final weekend of the campaign.

    His victory in the primary comes even though he was sentenced four years ago and jailed over a scandal involving a minor. He was in his fifties at the time while the minor was 17 years old. She worked at his law office.

    Despite denying the wrongdoing, he pleaded guilty in 2015 to a misdemeanor, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and admitted that prosecutors had enough evidence for a conviction.

    The Democrat spent six months in jail for the crime but managed to continue serving in the state legislature during the sentence.”

  10. Nothing of interest in the news today.
    All afternoon FoxNews has been talking about Trump telling a reporter that he would listen if a foreign source has news on an adversary.
    But they finally stopped. The breaking news is that KellyAnn Conway should be fired because she said she would vote Republican.

    Meanwhile, Iran is shooting at oil tankers.
