"Help Me, Dad"

"Suddenly a shot rang out, Kate fell, and looked at me and said, 'Help me, dad.' Those are the last words I'll ever hear from my daughter."

Jim Steinle offered those words on behalf of his daughter Kate before the Senate Judiciary Committee four years ago as he urged Beltway politicians to permanently remove violent criminals who are in America illegally.

That hasn't happened because DC Democrats are less interested in protecting American families from illegal immigrant criminals than are the presidents of Mexico and El Salvador.

What ensued for Steinle was what amounted to a four-year persecution of their family at the hands of the justice system, culminating now with an appellate court overturning the wholly unsatisfactory conviction of Kate's murderer for illegal possession of a firearm.

Stopping domestic gun crime and identifying those bent on acts of terrorism are vexing legal and cultural questions.

Removing a convicted felon seven times over who had been deported five times is not.

It's a simple matter of political will.

Socialists Push for Orwell’s 1984, Will Get Mondale’s 1984

I recently remarked to a friend in Chicago that big cities seem to be missing the folks who once roamed the streets wearing sandwich boards scrawled with dire predictions about end times and accosted unsuspecting pedestrians.

I found them. They’re running for President in 2020.

Like chicks behind Boss Chicken Little, as determined by her number of Twitter followers, each of the Democrat Socialist POTUS candidates put their scratch mark of assent on the deindustrialization of America known as the Green New Deal.

How totalitarian are the tendencies of this field?

California U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, who would eliminate private health insurance, confer racial reparations, institutionalize infanticide, legalize drugs, decriminalize prostitution, and impose San-Fran-style rent control, is touted as a moderate.

2020 could be the year that Socialists in pursuit of Orwell’s 1984 instead get Mondale’s 1984 and inadvertently preserve American liberty for at least another generation.

The Philosophy of Infanticide

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam may soon be moonwalking out of our lives forever but the Democrat Socialists’ support for infanticide isn’t going anywhere.

Northam’s recent support for killing a baby after birth followed Andrew Cuomo lighting up the New York skyline in celebration of the same.

This is who cultural Marxists are.

The cultural Marxist isn’t making a scientific argument when he offers the bumper-sticker paeans to “women’s reproductive health.” He is making a philosophical one.

The proponent of infanticide is the utilitarian.

Their philosophical leader is Princeton University Bioethicist Peter Singer who says what the standard-issue cultural Marxist pol won’t when he argues that a baby’s right to life is contingent on the happiness he enjoys and brings to others.

Singer argues it is okay to kill a disabled child if that killing will lead to the birth of a non-disabled child with better prospects for a happy life and the creation of enjoyment for others.

Utilitarianism is the mentality that promotes a culture of death.
