Baby Olivia

The left says, “Follow the science.” But when we show the science, they fight like mad to prevent the public from seeing it.

The pro-life group Live Action, led by Lila Rose, has created an excellent educational video called “Baby Olivia.” In just over three minutes, it shows the development of Baby Olivia in her mother’s womb.  
 
The video was developed with advice from six doctors, including experts in anatomy, biochemistry, and neuroscience. There’s no activism in the video, just the facts.
 
It is so compelling that legislators in four states have introduced laws requiring that it be shown in biology classes. One state has already done so.
 
Predictably, the baby-killing industry is doing its best to ban it. Pro-abortion groups don’t want students to see Baby Olivia. It would disrupt their lie that what is in the womb is just a “clump of cells.”
 
On a host of issues, the left says, “Follow the science.” But when we show the science, they fight like mad to prevent the public from seeing it, even what the development of a human being looks like.
 
But something else jumped out at me.
 
These same people trying to ban Baby Olivia viciously attack parents who don’t want their six year-olds shown graphic material about human sexuality. They condemn parents who don’t want drag queens in our schools.
 
Anyone who opposes that nonsense is smeared by the left as a “hater,” a “book burner,” or a “Nazi.” Monday, Clinton operative James Carville told MSNBC that Democrats need to “pummel … these Nazi hags at school board meetings trying to ban Rosa Parks.”

No one is trying to ban Rosa Parks!
 
Well, here is the left trying to ban science. Not only are they trying to censor basic biological facts, leftist educators are actually teaching our children biological myths, like the insane idea that a boy can become a girl. That’s just false. DNA doesn’t change.
 
The left is also censoring classic works of literature and not teaching the real history of America. Radical teachers have effectively banned the Declaration of Independence by simply ignoring it. How else could we be producing so-called “journalists” who are so ignorant? (See next item.)
 
 
 
Truth & Rights
 
The left absolutely hates the most essential sentence in the second paragraph of our Declaration of Independence. I have often referred to it as “America’s mission statement” because it is the very idea that makes America such an exceptional nation. It reads:
 
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
 
You get only three words before the left starts having fits. The left doesn’t believe in objective truth, and leftists lie all the time. They tell us that our borders are secure, that unborn babies aren’t human beings, and that men can get pregnant.
 
The sentence goes on to declare that our rights come from our “Creator,” meaning the God of the Bible. Well, the left rejects the very idea of a “Creator” and wants to ban the Bible. The neo-Marxist left worships Big Government.
 
And the sentence concludes with a brief list of rights, including the right to Life and Liberty, two things the left despises.
 
The culture war raging over the heart and soul of America is very real. No matter how uncomfortable that makes some people, we can’t avoid it.
 
The neo-Marxist left hates America. It is teaching our children that America is systemically racist, evil, and founded on genocide. There’s no compromising with that. (See next item.)
 
For the sake of our children and our country, we must fight back while we still can.
 
 
 
How Did This Happen?
 
Sunday afternoon, a man set himself on fire outside the Israeli embassy in Washington, D.C. He yelled, “Free Palestine,” as his body was burning. The man was later identified as Aaron Bushnell, a senior airman in the U.S. Air Force.
 
Before this horrible act, he posted that he did not want to be “complicit in genocide.” The news of his self-immolation was used by multiple media outlets to essentially condemn Israel’s war against the terrorists of Hamas.
 
There is a follow-up story on the Washington Post’s Metro page, where we often get stories about pandas. Here’s what we learned about Bushnell.
 
He was a self-identified anarchist. He attended socialist events. He was obviously pro-Hamas, given his final words. But what drove this young man to these extreme positions?
 
One friend told the Post that Bushnell knew that he had “privilege as a white man and a member of the military.” Another friend said that after the death of George Floyd, Bushnell “started to research the history of the United States and wanted to take a stand against all state-sanctioned violence.”
 
So, he totally bought into the neo-Marxist agenda of socialism, the “white privilege,” the belief that America had a really evil history, and Israel is evil, too. All of that led to Bushnell setting himself on fire.
 
It could be worse, I guess. He could have killed other people, too.
 
Here’s the final thing that should give us all pause. What did Bushnell do in the Air Force? He was a cyber defense operations specialist in the 531st Intelligence Support Squadron, based in Texas.
 
At the beginning of the Biden administration, we were told there was a serious problem with right-wing extremism in the military. Three years later, we learned that they really couldn’t find any evidence to support that claim.
 
Perhaps the Pentagon brass should be more concerned about left-wing extremism. How many more America-haters are serving in our military?
 
 
 
A Terrible Poll
 
I saw a terrible and demoralizing poll yesterday. Admittedly, it was not a scientific survey from a major group like Gallup. It was conducted by Rachel Campos Duffy of Fox News.
 
She was in southern Arizona, where illegal aliens from all over the world are walking across our open border. She surveyed a group of “migrants,” asking who they preferred — Joe Biden or Donald Trump. Biden won 100% of their votes. I’m shocked! — Not!
 
I’m going to make a prediction right now: Some of those people will actually end up voting in our elections.
 
I know the left and their media allies dismiss such concerns, but there is non-citizen voting taking place. Democrats do everything they can to make it as easy as possible. In fact, they even want to legalize it!
 
 
 
Election Misinformation
 
Many on the left and even some on Fox News are pushing the narrative that a sizeable percentage of Haley voters won’t vote for Donald Trump. There must be something wrong with that polling because a new national poll has Trump leading Biden by six points.
 
If a significant percentage of Haley voters won’t support Trump, then this poll is wrong. Both polls can’t be true.
 
Some are also saying that if Trump can’t get a major part of the GOP vote, then we need another nominee, someone like Nikki Haley. That analysis assumes that the overwhelming majority of Trump supporters will vote for someone like Haley.
 
But that’s not true. In fact, the phenomenon they are worried about is actually more likely in the opposite direction.
 
For example, the Texas poll I referred to yesterday found that in a Biden/Haley race, 21% of Texas voters said they would vote for someone else. In a Biden/Trump race, just 7% said they would vote for someone else. I believe that’s true all over the country.
 
The difference between Trump and Haley isn’t just a matter of style. They disagree on major policy issues. She has no serious record on border security. In fact, she opposed Trump’s policy of banning immigration from terrorist-infested nations when he first suggested it.
 
Haley hasn’t confronted the Deep State and its abuse.
 
Trump wants to be really careful about sending our brave men and women in uniform into combat. He doesn’t want one American to die in another “no-win” war. Haley is all in on America being the world’s policeman.
 
The sad reality is that Nikki Haley has become a stand-in for establishment figures like Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, and Paul Ryan — the very people the GOP base has completely repudiated.
 
It will be much easier to get reluctant Republicans who aren’t crazy about Trump to come around than it will be to get the MAGA movement to fall in line behind another establishment candidate.
