Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant on Wednesday signed legislation banning abortions beyond 20 weeks gestation. The bill takes effect July 1.
“Medical research shows that an unborn child can feel pain by not later than 20 weeks gestation, and research also shows that the risk of death and complications from an abortion increases significantly as a pregnancy progresses,” said Bryant in a statement.
The bill does not apply when carrying a pregnancy to term would threaten the health or life of the mother or in cases where the unborn child is determined to suffer from fetal abnormalities so great that life outside the womb is not viable. It does not include exemptions for rape or incest.
Abortion activists slammed Bryant and the legislation.

China: “Violent Government Thugs” Beaten To Death By Angry Crowds After They Killed A Man Documenting Their Brutality
Riots in southeastern China after brutal police-inspector killed a man with a hammer in broad daylight. People smashed several police cars and were attacked with tear gas.
At least 4 Chengguan, the most hated police-inspectors in China, were beaten to death by angry people in Cangnan County of Wenzhou City, Zhejiang Province (located in the industrial southeast), after they killed a man with a hammer. The police-inspectors hit the man with a hammer until he started to vomit blood, because he was trying to take pictures of their violence towards a woman, a street vendor. The man was rushed to hospital, but died on the way.
Thousands of angry people took to the streets, surrounded the police-inspectors in their van, attacked them with stones, bats, and beat them to death. People were shouting that the police-inspectors be killed on the spot for what they did: “Kill them! Kill them!”

The howls from the left — the liberals and the race baiters are raising their fists in anger and indignation because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Affirmative Action decision this week. By a 6 to 2 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) Justices approved Michigan’s voter-approved ban on the use of Affirmative Action, in hiring and education according to USA Today. Was it racism or justice being balanced?
Ever since the SCOTUS decision of 1978 where the court first addressed affirmative action in Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, their has been turmoil on both sides concerning use of racial preferences. The court decision was against the university in setting “aside a fixed number of seats for minorities at its medical school”, determining the set-aside “violated Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.” But it also ruled that race could be used as one of the criteria in addressing past discriminatory practices.
So, the door was opened in creating a two-tier justice system where discrimination based on race became a secondary consideration to achieving a diversely based student body. The need for diversity could therefore justify appropriate affirmative action programs. So the question: What is an appropriate remedy?
Since that moment, when the U.S. Supreme Court made a decision to allow Affirmative Action in a variety of higher education scenarios there has always been a reckoning that the court and nation would have to face. The court in effect took the easy way out in allowing liberal institutions to not address racism and discrimination , but instead create a new version of “institutional racism”.
The reality of this decision by SCOTUS absolutely guaranteed that a day of reckoning for the country and for the courts would arrive. That reckoning came on Monday, in a 6 to 2 decision, when the U.S. Supreme Court Justices approved Michigan’s voter-approved ban on the use of Affirmative Action.
With the 6-2 majority, now more than ever before, the nation may be prepared to move past the unequal use of legalities to promote fair and balanced justice in the United States. In fact, Monday’s decision may pave the way for at least seven other states that have similar Affirmative Action bans. Those states are Nebraska, Arizona, Florida, California, Oklahoma, Washington and New Hampshire.
For many who have been either impacted by the lingering Affirmative Action policies that have deprived far too many Americans of a true equal footing to navigate toward the American Dream, this may be the beginning of the end of those restrictive practices.
What the decision will most likely impact are those 42 other states that have some fashion of Affirmative Action programs being utilized presently. Currently those programs will be faced with increased scrutiny by courts. In fact, in last June’s 2013 Texas decision involving the University of Texas, its program is now facing more examination.
Was the decision racist or realistic with an intention by the SCOTUS justices to fit the decision for the 21st century? In the past, the goal of the nation’s highest court was to eliminate traditional patterns of racial discrimination and job and educational segregation. A test that the court used to test the lawfulness of the Affirmative Action program was whether it “unduly” trampled on the interests of white workers. If a white worker was fired or prevented from advancement, then the Affirmative Action program was ruled unconstitutional.
But the decision by the court had an equally deeper meaning and point. Writing for the majority in the decision, Justice Kennedy pointed out that the decision was not about racial preferences as much as that stopping “Michigan voters from making their own decision on affirmative action would be ‘an unprecedented restriction on a fundamental right held by all in common,’ “ reported USA Today.
So it is clear in this case, as it should be abundantly clear in the cases involving voter same-sex marriage bans, that the will of the people must account for some sense of sovereignty.
Yet, Justice Sonia Sotomayor sharply disagreed with the majority and in her 58-page dissent she suggested that “a product of affirmative action policies, minority enrollment will decline at Michigan’s public universities, just as it has in California and elsewhere. The numbers do not lie.”
The essence of her legal logic is that one wrong, however noble the intent, does not allow for that ill-conceived intent to stand. The law which required race-based proposals to continue to not simply repair “wrongs of the past” were themselves in their longevity creating a two-tiered system in America.
Racism in any form is still unconstitutional and cannot be permitted. Separate and unequal legal justice is what Michigan voters banned a decade ago, and now the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed.

I seriously doubt all of the purses my wife has ever owned add up to $ 400… and all of her wallets don’t reach $ 200.
Maybe that’s because she’s never had an EBT card in either of them.

What has society become? Our history books tell us of the savagery of a Holocaust that killed 6 million Jews at the oppressive hands of a mad man. Will history ever speak for over 50 million babies that have been aborted in America in the last 40 years? If this is now considered an acceptable form of generating electricity then I believe my family will have to resort to burning candles. This is beyond deplorable.
VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 23, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The British Columbia Health Ministry has admitted that the remains of babies destroyed by abortion in B.C. facilities are ending up in a waste-to-power facility in the United States, providing electricity for residents of Oregon.
The province’s Health Ministry said in an email to the B.C. Catholic that “biomedical waste” shipped to the U.S. to be incinerated includes “human tissue, such as surgically removed cancerous tissue, amputated limbs, and fetal tissue.”
“The ministry understands that some is transferred to Oregon. There it is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant,” the email stated.
The ministry said that contractors handling the province’s “biomedical waste” follow “health and safety protocols, as well as federal, provincial, and local regulations.”
Kristan Mitchell, executive director of the Oregon Refuse and Recycling Association, told the B.C. Catholic that the “biomedical waste” likely ends up at the Covanta Marion waste-to-energy facility in Oregon since it is the only facility that uses waste to power the grid. The facility confirmed that it still receives and incinerates B.C. medical waste.
“Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning fetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat,” reports the Telegraph. The revelations emerged as a result of a Channel 4 Dispatches program set to be broadcast in the UK tonight which found that more than 15,000 babies were incinerated.
The program also unveiled the fact that parents who lost babies were being treated without compassion and were not properly consulted on what would happen to their child’s remains.
In a society where the Catholic Church stands tall against abortion while its membership casts ballots for “baby killers” (pro-choice democrats), we should probably not be surprised.
We are no longer a society of morality. We are a society of convenience.
I realize that a lot of people don’t want to be bothered with the abortion debate. They feel that the debate is lost and there is nothing that can be done. Others believe in a woman’s right to choose to terminate that which resides in her body. They don’t see it as a human life. They see it as a woman’s choice.
These people need to do some research into the life and teachings of Margaret Sanger. Abortion was never about a woman’s right to choose. Sanger was a bigot who was providing the means for society to cleanse itself from undesirables which included people of race and those who were not of the right social class. She is, of course, the founder of Planned Parenthood and one of the most famous proponents of Eugenics in world history.
Abortion is just another strategy of a corrupt government to capitalize on a story line while pushing an evil agenda behind the scenes.

(FOX NEWS) The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan confirmed Thursday that three American doctors — including a reported father and son — were killed by an Afghan security guard who opened fire at a Kabul hospital.
“With great sadness we confirm that three Americans were killed in the attack at CURE Hospital,” said a statement posted on the Embassy’s Twitter page. “No other information will be released at this time.”
The shooting was the latest in a string of deadly attacks on foreign civilians in the Afghan capital this year.
‘Despicable lump of inhuman flesh’: Ted Cruz’ photo with tiger skin rug triggers massive avalanche of fury
Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee posed for a photo featuring a new addition to the office:
That picture falls into the “guess what happened next” category.
The angry reaction was predictable and massive.
Cue the fury, hate, disbelief and apoplexy:
….and I thought Ted Cruz was disgusting *before*—

The EPA is in the process, right this very minute, of seizing control over all private land in the United States. They are following the United Nations blueprint, their minion Gina McCarthy is implementing it, and B. Hussein Obama is facilitating it.
Anywhere in America where it rains or where water collects or through which water moves will now, according to this new rule change they are implementing, be under their control. Not because Congress or the people give them that authority or jurisdiction, but simply because they are seizing the power. It is just another component of the illegitimate tyranny which is oppressing the American people.
On Tuesday the agency which operates as the misnamed Environmental Protection Agency unveiled their proposed change to the Clean Water Act, which would extend their regulatory control to temporary wetlands and waterways.
This definition consists of any water, including seasonal ponds, streams, runoff and collection areas and irrigation water. It could include runoff from watering your lawn, or puddles on your own property. They will control the presence of and can prohibit through regulation, your right to the water and your actions regarding water upon your own land. The opportunities for their abuse would be limitless.
Louisiana Senator David Vitter, the ranking Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, offered an understated precautionary objection stating, “The … rule may be one of the most significant private property grabs in U.S. history.”
The EPA proposal would extend their authority to include “pollution regulations” to “intermittent and ephemeral streams and wetlands” – which are created temporarily during wet seasons or following rainfall.
Recognize this for what it is America; The EPA is giving themselves legal jurisdiction to replace our rights with their permissions anywhere it rains or water exists.
They are expanding the same kind of California fish-based drought or Nevada tortoise land restrictions or Oregon spotted owl tyranny to every square inch of the United States.
The EPA is asserting that all ground water, whether temporary or not and regardless of size is part of the “waters of the United States.”
Their position is in contradiction to the Supreme Court rulings in 2001 and 2006, restricting the EPA to flowing and sizeable, “relatively” permanent bodies of water such as “oceans, rivers, streams and lakes.” Of course, progressives just keep trying until they get what they want, and they never have enough.
The proposed rule change is now in a 90 day comment period during which they will assess just how much they can get away with, based upon public outcry and pushback.
Senator Vitter accused the EPA of “picking and choosing” their science and of attempting to “take another step toward outright permitting authority over virtually any wet area in the country.” He also warned that if approved, more private owners could expect to be sued by “environmental groups.”
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) shares Vitter’s concerns, warning of potential economic damage and questioning the EPA’s motivations.
She said, “[I]t appears that the EPA is seeking to dramatically expand its jurisdictional reach under the Clean Water Act. If EPA is not careful, this rule could effectively give the federal government control of nearly all of our state.
Of course, that is exactly what they are after, as well as 49 other states and territories.

I apologize if I’ve sent this cartoon out before. I’m gettin’ old and can’t remember anything anymore.
It was inspired by remarks by Sebelius and Harry Reid. Sebelius first. Naw…ladies first…
Harry Reid tried to explain in his own endearingly dumb way why Obamacare’s roll-out has failed so abysmally. The problem is that young people, the children of Baby-Boomers, cannot maneuver around on the Internet. According to Harry. He’s another guy who is having memory problems. Remember a few years ago when he forgot about a land deal he did which netted him a cool million. It completely slipped his mind when tax time came around. These things happen.
Speaking of land deals …and forgetfulness, I bet he’s about to forget he discussed the land deal his son was cooking up with some Chicomm pals and their energy conglomerate, which precipitated the Range War in Bunkerville, Nevada. (Turtles. Gimme’ a break.) I’d guess father and son never spoke of it. That would probably be unethical, even for a Senator…or a lawyer…or a member of the Las Vegas City Counsel or the honchos of Clark County, whichever body Sonny was a member of before a recent election. So, I’m certain they never discussed the big bucks Harry’s son was gonna’ pull down. Not once.
So Harry thinks you Internet kids are dumb. You guys who are always laughing at me because I don’t realize the importance of the picayune rules you’ve dreamt up about email/twitter grammar shortcuts. Maybe he is right as many of you fellows voted the present Administration in…twice. And even though your Mom’s basement is cozy and the rent is cheap, you’re finally figuring out you’ll never leave Mom’[s home cooking if we don’t toss these jerks out of office soon. (Does mom insist you do the dinner dishes in appreciation for her home cookin’? You should do it with out being badgered. It’s the least you can do. After the way you voted.)
Maybe Harry’s right about you. Which is all very ironic since another dummy from the Senate invented the Internet. So it can’t be that hard to figure out.
Get with it!
Now about Sebelius’s recent, really dumb comment. Apparently, in her personal on-going battle to make Obamacare seem less of a boondoggle, she has taken to looking for any rationalization explaining its failure. Nothing is too idiotic. And for her no one is safe from being accused of idiocy. She said that some people get their news from comedic sources. What’s wrong with that, so long as the take away is truthful and accurate.
I enjoy telling my pals they don’t need to watch the news anymore if they just read my cartoons. From my cartoons (in my own humble opinion, at least) you can hear what’s going on in the world. You can also enjoy some fair artwork (in my opinion, at least).
From a health standpoint, most people are sleep deprived and don’t drink enough water (if you don’t count grain alcohol), and likewise, they are “art deprived.” Admittedly, my cartoons may not fill this ephemeral void, but it’s worth a try.
Best of all, if you view my cartoons you can avoid spending a lot of mental energy trying to analyze the world events swirling around you. My cartoons will do that work for you. My cartoons will tell you what to think as well as entertain you (I’m really going out on a limb here.) Einstein is said to have had his closet full of many identical black turtlenecks and tweedy jackets because he didn’t wanna waste the mental effort of deciding what to wear every morning. Viola! Save yourself some mental energy. Just read my cartoons and skip the dull Media news. Avoid the tedium of listening to talking heads who couldn’t formulate an opinion on the benefit of toilet training youngsters before they reach adulthood…if pressed to discuss the topic.
Did you ever really consider Dan Rather interesting. He couldn’t hold your attention even if he was describing a train wreck when he was riding the train. And now we know he would probably make stuff up about the train he was riding. Heck, he may even have sabotaged the train…as we now know. Those Media guys make stuff up. Not me. You can take my messy little cartoons to the bank. (I just wish I could.)
See the cartoon above. Don’t analyze it. Just look it over and keep moving. And if it isn’t funny, find something else to laugh at today. Laughter is as important as water and sleep. Liberals/commies are humor deprived. You never see ‘em laugh. You don’t want to end up looking like them, do you?
So relax. Let me do the work and worry for you.
