New Link in my Sidebar-LifeSiteNews

Here’s a link to a post by a friend of mine, over at Ratburger.org.  I was impressed enough by his post that I have added a link to LifeSiteNews on my sidebar, so Pro-Life RushBabe49 followers can go directly there.

I am appalled by the actions of the Culture of Death (abortion supporters) who seem to run the big tech sites (Facebook, Google, Twitter), and systematically deny pro-lifers and conservatives a voice.  My followers will know that I do not maintain a presence on Facebook or Twitter, and I am being reminded of why that has been a good decision daily.

Please give LifeSiteNews your attention, and send your friends there.  Choose Life, not Death.

Gender is a social construct; there are no differences between the sexes. All men are bad.

Race is a social construct; there are no differences between the races. All white people are bad.

No culture is better than another. Western Civilization is bad.

Diversity of skin color is good. Diversity of thought is bad.

Religion leads to conflict and war. Islam is the religion of peace.

An especially harsh winter in one part of the globe does not disprove global warming. A single extreme weather event proves it.

Marriage is oppression. Opposing same-sex marriage is oppression.

Segregation is bad. Black college dorms and black graduation ceremonies are good.

“White flight” from inner-cities is bad. White migration to inner-cities (aka “gentrification”) is bad.

Diversity strengthens us by bringing in different viewpoints. Adopting diverse viewpoints is “cultural appropriation.”

The Constitution is a living document. The Supreme Court’s “Roe v Wade” decision is carved in stone.

Raising the cost of cigarettes will discourage people from smoking. Raising the cost of employing workers will not discourage businesses from hiring.

Slavery – an economic system in which people can arbitrarily demand others’ time, labor, and produce – is bad. Social Justice – a philosophy that holds that “the oppressed” can arbitrarily demand others’ time, labor, and produce – is good.

Monopoly by corporations – which must satisfy their customers to survive – is bad. Monopoly by government – which can use deadly force to survive – is good.

There are no absolute truths. Absolutely.

There are no s***hole countries. It’s cruel to send illegal aliens undocumented immigrants home because their countries are s***holes.

Government should get out of our bedrooms. Government must pay for our birth control.

Whites are evil, Western Civilization is evil, corporations are evil, police officers are evil, the right is evil. Conservatives are so judgmental.

A house a block from my apartment has two signs in the front window. One reads “Hate has No Home Here.” The other reads “Impeach Trump.”

A Post for Jerusalem Day

A Post for Jerusalem Day

And what is “Jerusalem Day“, you ask?  It is a holiday in the State of Israel, celebrating the 51st anniversary of the Jewish Liberation of Jerusalem, uniting it as one city, the GREATEST City, in the State of Israel.  And our President Donald Trump has given the Jewish people of Israel another great gift this year-the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, deciding to finally move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

In 2007, my husband and I went on a trip to Israel with Michael Medved and his family, where we toured most of the country.  Aside from the very hot weather in July, the trip was wonderful, and very enlightening.  Here are some of the pictures I took on that trip.

 

Wailing Wall

The Western (or Wailing) Wall, a remnant of the Second Temple, destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE.

Armenian Quarter

A street in the Armenian Quarter of Old City Jerusalem.  There are many of these back streets, not normally visited by tourists, that really have character.

Old City view

The view from the Old City Wall.  Can you see the cat?

Jaffa Gate

Jerusalem from Hotel

The view from our hotel room.

And here are a couple of pictures from other places we visited in Israel.

Painted Door, Safed
Painted Door, Safed, Israel

Just looking at this painted garage door in Safed makes me smile.  It’s a Klezmer band.

Walls, Masada
Walls and room, Masada, Israel

We spent an afternoon walking through the ruins at Masada, where a band of Jewish fighters and their families committed suicide rather than be conquered by the Romans.  All through our existence, over 4,000 years, we Jews have had to fight for our freedom-for our very existence.

This Jerusalem Day celebrates a huge victory for Jewish Freedom.

**But this victory will not be final until the Muslims are forced to relinquish their immoral control over the Temple Mount.  This was a major error, and needs to be rectified now, and not later.

Little Charlie Gard..A Horrifying Tale

Edit:  Here is a story from today, July 11, regarding the beautiful little boy pictured below.  This is sickening to me.

UK Judge Gives Parents Two Days to Prove Son Should Be Kept Alive.

iu

Little Charlie is a ten-month-old baby, who suffers from a rare genetic condition, Mitochondrial-DNA-Depletion Syndrome, that has robbed him of sight and other functions.  It was his unfortunate plight to have been born in England, where the all-powerful National Health Service (?) has deemed that he must die.  The Hospital where he has been most of his life, determined that his parents would not be permitted to remove him from the hospital, BUT the Hospital was given permission to remove his life support, and cause him to die.

Charlie’s doting parents raised over one million dollars to take him to America for an experimental treatment that might prolong his life.  However, the Powerful Administrative State (NHS), the European Court of Human Rights, and the Pontifical Academy for Life (!) of the Roman Catholic Church, have deemed that his parents will not be allowed to remove their son from the Hospital, even so he may die at home.

This is the ultimate end of the “Single Payer” healthcare system.  The all-powerful Government now owns your life, and your children’s lives.  There have been many stories over the years of elderly patients in the UK being deprived of food and water when it was determined by the State that they were not worth maintaining.  Parents can now not make decisions for themselves, or their children, and the state really does have the power of life and death over its subjects (not citizens if they do not own their own lives).

This story makes me so angry I could spit!  I do not have children, but I weep for little Charlie, and for his parents.

Culture. Of. Death.

Ed.:  Here are updates today.

Judge rules baby can be taken off life support against parents’ will.

Parents of brain-damaged baby lose fight to keep him on life support.

And President Donald Trump says he would be “delighted” to help this baby.  Too bad he will be denied that opportunity.

 

No Kidding…The SJW* Haggadah

No Kidding…The SJW* Haggadah

My followers will know that I am Jewish.  Each year, my husband and I go to my sister’s house for Passover, and there are often over 12 people there.   The “regular” Haggadah my sister normally uses dates from the early 1980s, and she thought she’d bring our Seder into the 21st Century this year. Now, my sister and her family are standard, Reform-Jewish Liberals, with all the usual proclivities. But this year, she went too far. You know you’ve got a problem when the title on the first page is

“Next Year in a Just World”.

Here is the first paragraph, under the heading “Candle Lighting”.

As we light the candles and welcome the glow of Passover into our homes, we pray that all those suffering around the world find light in the darkness. We pray that our experience tonight helps us to ignite the spark of justice within each of us.

What does that even mean? How does that have anything to do with Passover? Spark of justice??

Here are some really choice phrases found in this Internet, Liberal, Guilt-inducing, Diversity-spouting, “Haggadah”:

We praise God, Ruler of Everything

May this first cup of wine rouse each of us to the injustice that persists in our world today.

May we recognize our own capacity to make a difference and commit ourselves to building a better world.

When we dip the Karpas into the salt water, we see the tears of all who suffer injustice, mingling with our hopes for life, rebirth and new possibilities for justice.

The matzah enables us to imagine what it was like to have only poor bread to eat, to be denied our right (emphasis mine) to live free and healthy lives.

Let all people have access to sustenance.

On most other nights, we allow the news of tragedy in distant places to pass us by. We succumb to compassion fatigue–aware that we cannot possibly respond to every injustice that arises around the world.

When spilling wine from our glasses to mourn the Egyptians‘ suffering during the ten plagues, let us pledge to aid those who suffer from modern afflictions–from HIV/AIDS to Ebola

Under the heading The Four Children:

What does the activist child ask?

The heading The Ten Plagues

They have us mourning the suffering of the Egyptians.

…let us turn our hearts toward the millions of people around the world suffering today’s plagues of hatred, prejudice, baseless violence and war… We protest the proliferation of violence…

We must fight for the rights of women, girls, and LGBT people until true equality is achieved.

At that point, even my nephew and my homosexual niece and her girlfriend were laughing so hard, no one could continue. We usually take turns reading portions of the Seder, but this year many of us said “Do I really have to read this?” And, in the end, my sister agreed that this was just a bit too much, even for them! She has already said they’re going back to the old one next year. Maybe I’ll try to find her something a little more traditional, but more up-to-date. Any suggestions from Jewish followers, or visitors to my blog, will be welcome.

*For those of you who might not be familiar with the acronym SJW, it means Social Justice Warrior.  They are those liberal “crusaders” for Social Justice, whatever that means.

Year-End Photo Challenge: Resilient Jews

My People, The Jews, are the most resilient people there are.  We are Creators and scholars, in Science, Medicine, The Law, and Business.  The Jews have survived attempted genocide at the hands of the Romans.  (Just look at what the Roman Empire became-Italy now is a basket-case in Europe, as is Greece.)

Yet, We Survive, and Thrive.  We survived the Holocaust in World War II.  Six Million of us slaughtered, yet we Survive.

And we thrive today, in the State of Israel, may she live forever!

The Jews today face enemies, new and old, in the US and around the world.  Islamic Terrorists seek to destroy us wherever we are found (which is basically everywhere).  “Palestinians” seek to destroy the State of Israel, in Israel itself, and in the charnel-house of the United Nations (which has become a forum for the totalitarians and oppressors of the world).  But the Jews will survive, as they always have.  The State of Israel will survive, and thrive, and make its Middle East a better place for everyone, even its sworn enemies.  Jews know how to laugh in the face of evil, and hardship.

It has always been my opinion that the Jews are the Conscience of Humanity.  You will know when Humanity is well and truly doomed…when the last Jew is gone.  May that never happen.
