DNC Speaker Shouts Her Abortion and the Crowd Cheers
When talking about abortion, Democratic politicians and activists usually prefer to speak euphemistically: The dismemberment or lethal poisoning of a baby who hasn’t been born yet is almost always referred to as “reproductive health care” or “a woman’s choice.” The group NARAL, once known as the National Abortion Rights Action League, went so far as to change its name to NARAL Pro-Choice America so its supporters and allies could avoid saying the a-word.
But there’s been a growing push on the left to not only defend abortion as a necessary evil that should be “safe, legal, and rare” but to celebrate it as a positive good. (See the #ShoutYourAbortion Twitter campaign of 2015.) And so on Wednesday evening, Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, took the stage at the Democratic National Convention and told the story of the time she aborted her first child because it was an inconvenient time to become a parent.
“To succeed in life, all we need are the tools, the trust, and the chance to chart our own path,” Hogue said during her DNC speech. “I was fortunate enough to have these things when I found out I was pregnant years ago. I wanted a family, but it was the wrong time. I made the decision that was best for me—to have an abortion and get compassionate care at a clinic in my own community.” At this point, applause and cheers could be heard in the crowd. “Now years later, my husband and I are parents to two incredible children,” Hogue continued.
Prior to Hogue’s speech, the 2016 Democratic convention was already shaping up to be the most pro-abortion political convention ever. The Democratic platform was changed this year to call for the repeal of the Hyde amendment in order to provide unlimited taxpayer-funding of elective abortions for Medicaid recipients. Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood made the case for that policy in her speech Tuesday night.
And Hillary Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine flip-flopped on the issue of taxpayer-funded abortion at some point in just the last few weeks as he joined the Democratic ticket. That’s something Joe Biden, a supporter of the Hyde amendment, never had to do to become Obama’s running mate in 2008.
EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: CLINTON DELEGATE EXPLAINS HOW DEMOCRATS WILL BAN ALL GUNS
Democrat operative says Hillary would support total gun ban
Adan Salazar – JULY 25, 2016
Editor’s note: This is a Project Veritas exclusive in association with Infowars. James O’Keefe appeared on the Alex Jones Show on July 25 to discuss the story. Listen/watch here. Check out Project Veritas here.
If your goal is an outright gun ban, you need to use terms such as “common sense gun legislation” to fool the public, a Hillary Clinton campaign delegate admitted in a recent undercover sting video released exclusively to Infowars.
“Saying you want to ban guns altogether, that’s going to piss everybody off,” the Clinton alternate delegate, Mary Bayer, told a Project Veritas reporter.
Instead, Bayer revealed, Democrats use “moderate” language when it comes to guns to obscure their true purpose, a complete elimination of the Second Amendment.
“You have to take that sort of moderate… ‘We just wanna have common sense legislation so our children are safe!’” Bayer told the reporter, adding, “You say shit like that, and then people will buy into it.”
Bayer also admitted Hillary “for sure” would support banning guns, and said the only way to actualize that goal would be to “get Democrats in office.”
The delegate’s admission is particularly concerning given the fact that Clinton campaigns on the promise of enacting “common sense approaches” to gun control if elected president in November.

3:08 PM – 22 Jul 2016
Bayer’s revelations of a potential gun ban are also reminiscent of sentiments made public in 2014 by Poughkeepsie Mayor John Tkazyik, once a member of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” who warned that the billionaire’s anti-gun group – largely comprised of Democrat mayors and which advocated “common sense gun laws” – was a cover for gun confiscation.
“Under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens,” Tkazyik penned in an op-ed for the Poughkeepsie Journal, confirming what many already suspected about the group.
The latest damning sting video follows another Project Veritas effort in which reporters posing as the group “Citizens Against Senseless Violence” asked anti-gun politicians if they would display signs on their front lawns declaring their homes “Gun free zones.”
Unsurprisingly, none of the politicians wanted the sign displayed at their homes. Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe says his organization will also be seeking additional support for his anti-gun effort from delegates at the Democrat National Convention this week in Philadelphia.
Islamist knifemen forced priest, 84, to kneel and filmed his death as they slit his throat: Hollande says ‘France is at war with ISIS’ after jihadists storm French church during Mass chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’
- Priest had throat cut while another hostage is fighting for life after knifemen burst into Normandy church at 9am
- Reports that one of the attackers shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ as they launched attack at Gambetta Church near Rouen
- Vatican has condemned the ‘barbaric’ killing of the 84-year-old priest and an anti-terror investigation is underway
- ISIS claim responsibility for the atrocity while Francois Hollande says France is ‘at war’ with the terror group
- One of the attackers lived locally and had electronic tag having been jailed in France for trying to travel to Syria
- French authorities revealed this afternoon that they have arrested a third man in connection with the attack
The ISIS barbarians who stormed into a church in Normandy filmed themselves butchering an elderly priest after forcing him to the ground at the altar, it has emerged.
The 84-year-old priest, named as Jacques Hamel, had his throat cut while a nun is critically injured in hospital following the raid which saw five people held hostage by ISIS assailants shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.
The two killers were ‘neutralised’ by marksmen as they emerged from the building, which is now being searched for explosives. French president Francois Hollande said France is ‘at war’ with ISIS while the terror group has claimed responsibility for the killing.
One of the men who stormed into the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen during mass was a local man, who was being monitored by electronic tag after being jailed for trying to join fanatics in Syria.
This afternoon it emerged that the murdered clergyman was deputising while the parish priest was on holiday. French authorities say they have arrested a third man in connection with the attack.
It comes as it emerged that the building was one of a number of Catholic churches on a terrorist ‘hit list’ found on a suspected ISIS extremist last April.
There are also reports that one of the attackers was a local resident who was under electronic tag surveillance having been jailed in France for trying to travel to Syria in 2015. His bail terms allowed him to be unsupervised between 8.30am and 12.30pm – the attack happened between 9am and 11am.
Politifact: Democrats never mentioned terrorism on Day One of DNC

Republicans’ claim that Democrats did not mention terrorism or ISIL on the first night of the Democratic National Convention is correct, Politifact said Tuesday morning.
“Based on our searches of C-SPAN closed-captioning text, Congressional Quarterly transcripts and other video archiving services, we couldn’t find any speaker who mentioned “ISIS,” “Islamic” “terror,” “terrorist,” or “terrorism” during the first day of the convention,” Politifact wrote.
The fact-checking website did add the caveat that the Democrats still have three days to discuss terrorism at the convention and the first day of the convention was not meant to focus on foreign policy. Additionally, Hillary Clinton on Monday called for action against ISIL at a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“We need to lead other countries in stopping ISIS, Al Qaeda, and other radical jihadist groups,” she said. “We shouldn’t leave that to the rest of the world to figure out on their own. That won’t keep us safe.”
Republican nominee Donald Trump and his running mate Mike Pence pounced on the Democrats on Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina for failing to mention ISIL.
“We need to change our foreign policy to focus on defeating and destroying ISIS, a word you didn’t hear last night at the Democrat convention,” Trump said. “You didn’t hear it. They don’t want to talk about it. Because in a very true way, they really established ISIS because of weakness.”
Watch what happened today at the DNC when Bernie Sanders tells them that they need to vote for Hillary Clinton
PHILADELPHIA — Sen. Bernie Sanders sent a text message to the leaders of his delegation pleading with them not to protest on the Democratic convention floor Monday night.
“I ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest on the floor,” he wrote in the text message to his delegate whips. “Its of utmost importance you explain this to your delegations.”
He signed the text, “Bernie.”
Many of his delegates did not heed his warning, as some Sanders supporters interrupted the convention’s opening prayer with chants of “Bernie!” DNC Chair Rep. Marcia Fudge reprimanded the delegates for interrupting her opening remarks when she said she was “excited” to help elect Hillary Clinton and Sen. Tim Kaine. “Excuse me!” she pleaded, as Sanders delegates interrupted her with boos and chants of “Bernie.”
“We are all Democrats, and we need to act like it,” Fudge said.
Later, Sanders sent an email to his delegates saying that their movement’s credibility would be “damaged” by “booing, turning of backs, walking out or other similar displays.” Sanders said such demonstrations are “what the corporate media wants.”
Clinton invites families of blacks killed by police to speak at convention
Philadelphia’s police union is blasting Hillary Clinton for inviting relatives of victims of police shootings to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week, but failing to include relatives of slain police officers.
John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, said the union was “shocked and saddened” by the planned choice of speakers at the convention, which opens Monday in Philadelphia.
“The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows and other family members of police officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit and not implied racism,” Mr. McNesby said in a statement.
He said it’s “sad that to win an election Mrs. Clinton must pander to the interests of people who do not know all the facts, while the men and women they seek to destroy are outside protecting the political institutions of this country.
“Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed of yourself, if that is possible.”
The Clinton campaign has scheduled former President Bill Clinton to speak Tuesday night with members of Mothers of the Movement, a group that includes relatives of black men killed by police such as Eric Garner of New York and Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri.
Former Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey, who said the nation is a “powder keg” over the police-involved shootings and assassinations of officers, is also scheduled to speak.
Clinton campaign spokeswoman Stephanie Formas told the CBS affiliate in Philadelphia, “As Hillary Clinton has said, we need to support heroic police officers who put their lives on the line every day as well as listen to the voices of mothers who have lost their children.
“We look forward to highlighting the courageous efforts of law enforcement with speakers at our convention, including from Pennsylvania, and praising their work to keep our communities safe.”
Was the Midterm Election victory a sign of America turning back to God?
I am not blindly Republican but I am wide-eyed anti-Democrat. This is because the policies of the Democratic Party are not policies at all, they are drugs. Today, they are drug dealers who sell addiction to government.
Like all crafty dealers they offer the drug for free until you addicted, and while you are high, they say “don’t worry about how we are going to pay for all of this.”
The payment comes in the destruction of the family and neighborhood. On August 6, 1945 Detroit was a gleaming city and Hiroshima was utter ruins from the atomic bomb. Today Hiroshima is a gleaming city and Detroit is utter ruins from the effect of a slow burning bomb of government dependency.
Secular progressives, like any other Ponzi scheme, must have a constant flow of new customers. That is why they opened the border to try to create more addicts.
Government addiction is nothing new; it has ruined several empires. Benjamin Franklin saw it as the death knell of America. He said, “When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.”
I have tried to understand why Obama would pursue policies that history and common sense show are doomed to failure and in fact they are failing spectacularly right now. The answer is simple: He wants to stay in power.
For the last two years I carried a secret dread that I would not even share with my wife…only God. Obama was reelected. Just saying that boggled my mind. How could such a train wreck of a failure be allowed 4 more years? My answer was simple: a corrupt campaign to addicted voters.
We had every reason to believe that our democracy went away two years ago. There, displayed before our eyes was proof that we would accept unlimited bungling in exchange for our narcotic of choice.
This is why the midterm election is some kind of miracle. It is almost like the neighborhood rose up and said I want to go through cold turkey, and told the drug lord “I am going to break my addiction to you!”
Jesus said in ‘Matthew 11:17, ‘We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not lament.’ This is why you see that look of shock and disgust on the faces of Obama, Reid, and Pelosi, because they are saying “We played ‘War on Women’ and you did not dance, and we played ‘white racist America’ and you did not mourn.”
After seven years of drought Elijah went to the mountain and prayed. When he saw a cloud the size of a man’s fist and declared “there is the sound of the abundance of rain.”
To those around him who had lost everything because of drought this must have seemed utterly foolish. It is only a tiny cloud and you are declaring a deluge of rain! The midterm elections are a cloud the size of a man’s fist. A nation wants a job not food stamps. A nation wants greatness not global obscurity. A nation wants Jesus not Allah. A nation has just taken a small, vital step toward God.
