Heartbreaking! Charles Krauthammer With Weeks To Live Writes A Good-Bye Letter

I didn’t always agree with Krauthammer, but there was no denying he was always the smartest guy in the room. He was always a formidable debater on any subject. And what a life he’s lived. In the face of debilitating injury, he chose to live his life to the fullest. Truly an inspiration.

FOX News published this on their colleague.

Charles Krauthammer, the beloved and brilliant Fox News Channel personality who gave up a pioneering career in psychiatry to become a Pulitzer Prize-winning political analyst, on Friday revealed the heartbreaking news that he is in the final stages of a losing battle with cancer.

The 68-year-old’s incisive takes on politics of the day have been missing from Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” for nearly a year as he battled an abdominal tumor and subsequent complications, but colleagues and viewers alike had held out hope that he would return to the evening show he helped establish as must-viewing. But in an eloquent, yet unblinking letter to co-workers, friends and Fox News Channel viewers, Krauthammer disclosed that he has just weeks to live.

Here’s his letter:

June 8, 2018

I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months. I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me.

In August of last year, I underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in my abdomen. That operation was thought to have been a success, but it caused a cascade of secondary complications which I have been fighting in hospital ever since. It was a long and hard fight with many setbacks, but I was steadily, if slowly, overcoming each obstacle along the way and gradually making my way back to health.

However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned. There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.

My dear friends, who have given me a lifetime of memories and whose support has sustained me through these difficult months. And all of my partners at The Washington Post, Fox News, and Crown Publishing.

Lastly, I thank my colleagues, my readers, and my viewers, who have made my career possible and given consequence to my life’s work. I believe that the pursuit of truth and right ideas through honest debate and rigorous argument is a noble undertaking. I am grateful to have played a small role in the conversations that have helped guide this nation’s destiny.

I leave this life with no regrets. It was a wonderful life full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.

And Krauthammer leaves this life as he lived it. An inspiration. A true inspiration.

Abortion

Why the Senate Really Killed the “Born Alive Protection Act”

The “Born Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act” was killed in the U.S. Senate. The bill has been around the block in Congress for years. It reemerged after, in early 2019, the State of New York, Virginia, and others passed or proposed laws permitting abortion up until birth.

This new push for abortion on demand at all stages of development horrified the American public.

It was a perfect time to get Senators to vote “on the record” regarding support or opposition to saving children that survive an abortion attempt.

How could Senators not want to save babies born alive!? That was the question of the Republican majority.

The bill was actually about protecting abortion doctors that may not have the skills required to save a child born alive. The press missed it.

Elections Matter

In the Senate, you must have 60 votes to proceed with a bill. With only a 53-seat Republican majority to 45 Democrats and 2 Independents, getting 60 votes in the Senate requires many Democrats to move their vote away from the party.

The February 25, 2019, Senate vote on the “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” was 53-44 with three absent. This was not enough to move the bill. Sens. Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Bob Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania were the only Democrats to vote for the bill.

What the Bill Said

The legislation requires that, when an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, health care practitioners must do the following –

“exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age.” Then “ensure that the child born alive is immediately transported and admitted to a hospital.”

There are strict penalties in the bill for anyone who has knowledge of this happening and does not report it. A woman whose child survives an abortion and is then terminated is protected by the bill and she can sue the doctor and have civil remedies.

The Political Spin that Killed the Bill

Sen Schumer, the Democrat leader of the Senate, proclaimed that the bill was an attack against health care providers; “to target, intimidate, and shut down reproductive health care providers.”

Schumer convinced the Democrat Senators that it was a measure to make Doctors stop doing abortion because if a baby survived, they would be responsible for saving it or held criminally responsible. This was reported in the Daily Signal.

By law, an infant extracted during an abortion that is breathing or has a heartbeat is legally a “person” and has full legal rights. Not taking measures to save a person should indeed have consequences.

Why the Democrats Were So Quick to Kill the Bill

There is a difference between Doctors that do abortions and Doctors that save babies at birth. It is a different skill set. The “Born Alive Abortion Survivor Protection Act of 2018” would have made Doctors criminally negligent if they did not have the same degree of “professional skill” to save a baby that came out of abortion breathing or with a heartbeat.

A  current law, the “Born-Alive Infant Protection Act of 2002” (details below) gives an infant born alive, even in an attempted abortion, full legal rights as a “person.” But it did not require anything from the doctors or impose criminal penalties.

This is why Senator Schumer was so adamant about the 2019 bill being “an attack on the Doctors.” Planned Parenthood, who heavily funds Democrat candidates, likely created this narrative to protect their Doctors.

Do the Math!

Several Senators say the bill “didn’t matter because this virtually never happens.” These Senators need to do the math.

According to the CDC, Abortion performed at equal to or greater than 21 weeks’ gestation makes up 1.3% of all abortions, according to statistics for 2015.

Only 1.3% sounds like a small number, but with 638,169 abortions performed in 2015, that equals 8,296 later term abortions in just one year! That, my friends, is not an inconsequential number!

Most medical communities establish 24 weeks gestation, the latter part of the second trimester, as the earliest time of viability, when a child can survive outside the womb,  according to the American Pregnancy Association.

Out of 8,296 abortions done after 21 weeks, how many of those children could have survived? I personally have friends that have babies born prematurely as early as 24 weeks and they are healthy happy children.

The Real Survivors

The Democrats promote political rhetoric that children do not survive abortions, so this law and medical protection are not needed.

Yet there are hundreds of adult abortion survivors. Many have now organized and are having their voices heard. Thank God they are here to have a voice.

The Abortion Survivors Network was created by saline infusion abortion survivor and international pro-life speaker and advocate Melissa Ohden, who recognized the need for both support for and among abortion survivors.

A page on TeenBreaks.com tells the stories of abortion survivors.

“I was aborted and I did not die! I should be blind, burned… I should be dead! And yet, I live! Due to a lack of oxygen supply during the abortion I live with cerebral palsy…Today I am left only with a slight limp. I no longer have need of a walker or leg braces… Death did not prevail over me… and I am so thankful!”

There is a Law in Place

In 2002, Congress passed the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which guaranteed to infants born “at any stage of development” full legal rights.

If, after the baby leaves the mother, they are breathing or have a beating heart, even if they are still attached to the umbilical cord, they are protected by law. They are defined as a “person” or “child.” This includes babies being extracted during an abortion.

However, that bill which passed with bipartisan support and was signed into law by President George W Bush did not include criminal penalties for doctors that did not try to save the baby. The law did not take into account the Doctor extracting the baby may not have the medical skill to save its life if it came out alive.

It was assumed, that since the child was defined by law as a “person,” with protection under the law, that not attempting to save the life of the person by a medical professional would be a criminal act.

Does a Mother have a right to kill another person, even if it is her child? No, neither does a Doctor.

Putting Women’s Health in Danger

According to the CDC; “In 2014, the most recent year for which data were available, six women were identified to have died as a result of complications from legal induced abortion.”

The number of injuries or hospitalizations of women is not reported properly in the United States. When an ambulance from an abortion clinic goes to a hospital it is categorized as “childbirth complications,” or “maternity mortality.”

In these cases,  great measures are taken by the abortion providers to cover it up, including paying off the family in exchange for a non-disclosure agreement. It is a hidden secret of the industry that needs to be revealed.

If Congress is serious about women’s health, the rules of reporting these statistics to the CDC need to be changed.

No Protection for Women or Children

Allowing Doctors to do a surgical or chemical medical procedure, extract a life, without the skills set to “save a life” is not only dangerous for the child/legal person but also for the woman undergoing the procedure.

States have tried pass requirements for abortion Doctors to at least have “admitting privileges” at a local hospital. This requirement is fought hard against by the Abortion Lobby.

The Supreme Court in February 2019 stopped a Louisiana law requiring this by putting it on hold for 45 days while the doctors of the few remaining clinics attempted to get privileges.

The state-level fight over whether abortion providers should be required to have admitting privileges at local hospitals is likely far from over.

Women should be protected as well as the potential child. Requiring Doctors to have life-saving skill sets and access to hospitals should be an unquestionable standard for anyone concerned about women’s health.

An Open Letter to President Donald J Trump

I believe this is the most important article that I will have brought to you to date. It’s one that strikes very close to home. I am thankful that I still have a platform to bring you news and to share my views with you… but several of my friends no longer have that ability. They are gone. Their voice has been silenced. And I believe they were strategically targeted due to the content of their character and manner of their speech. The precise hope that Dr. Martin Luther King had longed for is far from our reach, and worse, is being pushed to new extremes right in front of us. This can not be allowed to happen. What just occurred cannot be allowed to fade into the backdrop of our daily lives… for if it does, our Freedoms have truly been taken from us, and done so, without a fight. Now is the time. The protections that have allowed what you are about to read to occur need to be withdrawn. And with enough of your support, if we can get this into the hands of our amazing POTUS, I believe, we can change a growing trend that is only going to get worse. Now is the time…

An open letter to the Honorable President Donald J. Trump

The American dream and everything our Republic stand for is under attack. “We the people” are systemically, systematically, insidiously, and effectively, being silenced by a handful of monopolistic social media and tech giants. Last week hundreds if not thousands of highly successful social media pages, with a combined fan base of over a 100 million American citizens and a collective weekly reach of more than a billion views, were deleted from Facebook without any warning or recourse. Facebook says it is “regardless of political slant” however, it is clear from just a quick glance that nearly all of the pages that were removed are right-leaning pages. Pages like Occupy Democrats and Media Matters, who are heavy offenders and have been proven to be liars time and time again were left untouched. There is absolutely a political slant.

The people who owned and operated these pages, and their personal profiles, were erased from existence and cut off from family, friends, co-workers and loved ones. They were vilified for generating a family income as “motivated by money” ironically while Facebook injects paid for “sponsored” posts into the news feed displacing those very same people. The reason given for this social media purge was for what Facebook is calling “Inauthentic Activity”, “Fake News”, “Spam” and “Spreading Misinformation.” These allegations are not true and are merely a veiled attempt to silence views with which management at these companies do not agree. This is nothing short of a modern-day digital “Night of the Long Knives” with the expressed intent to exterminate dissenting political views and illegally corrupt and influence the American electoral process just weeks before Americans cast their votes.

In the hours following the purge these pages, businesses, and grassroots leaders have been systematically vilified as spammers, offensive, bad actors, fake news, hate speech, hyper-partisan, clickbait, inauthentic, ad farms and even “Russian bots” by their accomplices in the mainstream media and leftist activist groups. In fact, the Washington Post had an article up within minutes of the pages being removed including accurate figures. Clearly, this was a conspiratorial effort which was preplanned and leaked to only specific news outlets.

In a press release dated October 11th, 2018 entitled: Removing Additional Inauthentic Activity from Facebook the very first line is not only inauthentic but pure hypocrisy. “People need to be able to trust the connections they make on Facebook.” If we are supposed to “trust the connections” why can’t we trust that we will remain connected? The authenticity of social media companies’ rules, policies, terms, and statements have gone unchallenged for far too long. These companies purposefully use vague terms of service and obtuse community standards which they apply unevenly to users, pages, and businesses on their platforms based on whether or not they agree with the ideological or political views of the subjects under review.

Social media platforms once offered the average person a way to rally people behind their ideas and causes much the way the nation rallied behind the President’s “America First” ideal. Initially, all these social media platforms held themselves out to be a free and open place for which people could connect with each other, share ideas, network and transact business. Social media platforms have become the town square; however, it is now a corporately owned and censored town square where free thought and speech are being silenced if they are not in line with the ideology of the management of these corporations. These social media platforms enjoy the protections of the Communications Decency Act yet they now act as gatekeepers and editors of all opinion and ideas. The CDA protects social platforms from removing content it deems offensive, it does not protect it from removing behavior it deems inauthentic, ideas it does not agree with or political slant. Facebook should no longer be afforded the protection of the CDA.

If these social media companies want to have editorial control, decide what is “legitimate political debate”, or hold editorial power over the user’s thoughts and content, then they are no longer a platform, but are instead publishers, and should be held to the standards to which publishers are legally held. These companies should also lose all safe harbor protections afforded to platforms regarding content posted on their sites. It is time to hold them accountable for their biased actions and disproportionate enforcement of vague all-encompassing policies.

We are the people who have remained nameless and faceless internet leaders since the very birth of social media. We are the grassroots movement. We are the people who have echoed the ideals of the nation to hundreds of millions of people collectively on social media. We are the voices of the silent majority. We are the foundation of this nation, and we are being “digitally de-personed” for the crime of expressing free thought, free speech, truth, fact, logic, and opinion. We are the people being eliminated – one page and one profile at a time. We are the people that have lost our jobs educating the nation. We are the social media influencers and grassroots leaders who have been supporting freedom of thought and freedom of speech online for years. We are under attack, and we are losing our fight. We are the people that “stir up political debate.” We are the forgotten soldiers fighting to keep our voices heard and our fellow citizens informed of the so-called “indistinguishable” truths that these social media giants want to suppress and erase from public discussion. We are the people that need your help.

On October 11th, 2018 Facebook disconnected and or removed over a hundred million American voters from the social media pages they choose to follow just a few short weeks prior to this upcoming election. Facebook did so in an attempt to disrupt and influence the outcome of the elections in favor of their preferred candidates. This interference with the electoral process is business as usual for Facebook and should no longer be considered a just civil matter. Over the past few election cycles, Facebook has illegally provided additional reach to their political allies and suppressed the reach or silenced the speech of their political opponents when suppression was not enough. What is this political assistance worth in actual dollars? Tens of millions? Hundreds of millions? This interference must not and cannot be allowed to continue. Isn’t an undocumented donation in the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars designed to swing and undermine a national election a crime? Why are these social media giants not being held accountable for their illegal behavior? When will the government put a restraining order on these companies?

There are vast amounts of data that we have seen that confirm this malfeasance on the part of Facebook over the recent election cycles. Deletion of politically oppositional pages started in 2012, then again before the 2016 election and now openly and blatantly in 2018 midterm election. It has been going on for some time now. “This year, we’ve enforced this policy against many Pages, Groups and accounts” Many more pages and profiles have been removed than just in the past few days. We will no longer accept the status quo. It needs to stop now! We are calling on our President to take action against these real bad actors, and right the injustice being played out on the American people.

This is an attack on America; this is an attack on our Republic, this is an attack on We the People, this is an attack on the Constitution, and it should be considered an act of treason. The actions of these social media and tech giants are nothing short of a digital coup. We are the American people, and we need help now! Immediate action needs to be taken to restore people’s voice and prevent these Domestic Enemies of the Constitution from determining the future of America!

The Silenced Americans!

A good friend of mine wrote this after speaking with dozens of the owners of pages that have been terminated. Comprised from hearing the voices of men and women that love our country. That support our flag. That stand for the National Anthem and want to support all those that share their resolve by creating content any proud American can enjoy. Some were creating additional income for their families from doing so, but most of the pages that were taken down were merely pages created by patriots that loved to lend their voice to the fight and bring inspiration and truth to a social media world that desperately needs it. Friends, now is the time. The agency that they are using to hide behind needs to be removed from the equation in this matter. And we believe that will only occur if we get our amazing Commander in Chief to appoint the right people to look into this and demand justice. Friends, now is the time… Please Share!

3 Year Old Needed Emergency Surgery After Botched Female Genital Mutilation Operation in London

We hear of the days of Islamic slave traders who commonly practiced the castration of male slaves so they wouldn’t defile a Muslim woman. If the African women were attractive to the eye, they were kept as sex slaves, but if they had a child, the child was just killed. Then there is the business of how Muslims commonly mutilate their female children. Females who are mutilated are not interested in sex as adults, but in Islam raping your wife, or any woman unprotected by male family members, is a Muslim man’s right. This stuff is just SICK! Disfiguration of young girls, like what we see was practiced as related in the following article, is yet another perversion of the worst kind. It is a mutilation from which a girl will never recover. Included here is a brief portion of a much bigger story at Breitbart London.

A three-year-old girl was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery after a botched female genital mutilation procedure in Sadiq Khan’s London.

A 42-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman, both understood to be of African background, are due in court to be charged with FGM offences after the incident was investigated by the Metropolitan Police Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Africans are accused of having “excised, infibulated or otherwise mutilated the whole or a part of a girl’s labia minora and clitoris”, as well as offences related to “extreme pornography” — namely images of child abuse and bestiality.

Again, the full story can be seen here at Breitbart London. The details are sickening!

So, you card-carrying Liberal Snowflakes are okay with this? I’m not! Are you going to just sit there, totally blind to the absolute physical, social, economic, and moral “black hole” that is Islam? It’s incomprehensible to me that any American, even with half their brain tied behind their backs, could endorse the free expression of this level of perversion. The double standards are innumerable and blatant. But that’s the Liberal mentality,right? You feel it’s okay to do whatever you want in your house, but don’t bring it into mine! That’s how we should be thinking about our country. If you want to torture and mutilate your children, DON’T DO IT IN MY HOUSE (nation)!
