Will Brexit Get US out of the UN?

Since the Brits left the European Union on June 23rd of this year, there has been a buzz in political circles around the world. What will this mean in terms of the global economy, trade and what will Britain’s independence from the European Union mean to the Brits at home in terms of self-government? This has propelled many Americans to come up Amexit concept  as result. Americans, while having their sovereignty, still feel they are don’t truly have it because the elected officials do not truly represent their interest but that of special interest groups.

However,  Amexit is not the same for all people. Some see it as a call to succession but succession is not that easy to pull off. It has only happened once in our country’s history and even then it didn’t quite take. In reviewing the Constitution, I saw nothing that strictly forbade succession from the Union though there were parameters for the entrance of a new state. However,  Washington is not the only entity that controls us. There is also the UN and there is even a stronger movement for us to leave the UN. It has been going on for years but Brexit has brought it light once more.

In the wake of the wonderful decision by the people of the United Kingdom to #Brexit, some conservatives in Congress have decided to seize the moment and push for an #Amexit (American Exit) from the United Nations! It’s an idea that conservatives have long supported and may now grab the national imagination, as Americans seek new ways to disconnect themselves from the corrupt establishment that runs our political world. Amexit

There was actually an Act that was introduced last year called the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2015. The main sponsor was Mike Rogers from Alabama and it totally removes the United States from participating in the United Nations in any fashion. One thing that was particularly interesting that you may not initially think about when it comes to the United Nations is that it would remove any diplomatic immunity from those visiting our country.

Diplomatic immunity

No officer or employee of the United Nations (including any organ, specialized agency, commission or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations) or any representative, officer, or employee of any mission to the United Nations of any foreign government shall be entitled to enjoy the privileges and immunities of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of April 18, 1961, nor may any such privileges and immunities be extended to any such individual. Govtrack

It also applies to “families, suites, or servants of such officers or employees.” (ibid) So if some sicko comes over there with some diplomatic assembly and ends up raping someone, he will be held accountable for his crimes. With the recent Hillary debacle, where the FBI refused to press charges against Hillary for deleting 30,000 emails that contained classified information, we don’t need more officials getting away with breaking the law.

If there is any time that is perfect for this bill to passed it is not. With Brexit people are realizing they need to take their countries back, their sovereignty back and though this bill was drawn up long before Brexit occurred, it does give a certain amount of revitalization that it didn’t have before. The birth of America was born on reclaiming sovereignty. So if anyone can pull this off, it is the American people. It is time, we removed ourselves from the United Nations. The United Nations has become an organization of corruption and greed.

United NationsWe have seen the Oil for Food scandal, rape squads in the Congo and terrorist nations who are a part of the organization. By our continuing support, we are saying we agree with the UN’s performance and give credence to these rogue nations as legitimate states. Just like we left the League of Nations, it is now time we also leave his successor, the United Nations. It has become an abomination to international affairs and it is also time we take some of our power back. This bill would remove us completely and totally from the United Nations, even denying any remittance to its headquarters in New York.

HR 1205 may have some true fighting power. More and more people are fed up with bureaucrats, especially those without any allegiance to our land, having the power to rule over us. Conservatives have always backed getting out of the UN for years but even those on the other side of the fence are starting to see the more we continue to ignore the corruption in all areas of public policy, the worse things get for the average American.

In a radio interview with host Vince Coakley, Representative Massie noted that the bill was not a response to Brexit, as the latest iteration of the bill was actually introduced in Congress last year. But now is a good time to move it forward. “Who would be crazy enough to stay in the United Nations and pay the majority of their funding while it’s attended by Third World dictators who are writing rules and regulations that are supposed to bind our country? After Brexit

For those who think we need to be part of the UN because it aids us in helping those who may need our assistance do not understand Americans. If there is one thing Americans are great at, it  is helping those in need. Even if we leave the United Nations that will not stop. We still have NGOs that will assist Americans in helping those outside of our borders. We don’t need a corrupt organization to help us act nobly. We are Americans, we have proven we can do it on our own.

 

Conversing with God

cropped-cropped-cropped-cropped-img_20120122_1323411.jpgThis conversation started yesterday on Facebook but the post ended up getting lost. However, the Spirit told me that conversation needed to be shared not just as a random post but as something more. My conversations are my prayers and they deal with a variety of issues but this conversation dealt with God himself. He definitely had some things to say so we will restore that conversation so people will have the opportunity to learn a thing or two about our amazing Heavenly Father.

Me: God, I hope I haven’t talked too much to you in the last few days.

God: Dena, how is that even a thing? You can never talk to me too much. I love hearing from all my children.

Me:Good because I like talking to you too. Except this time I want to talk about you.

God: Not a problem. Go ahead.

Me: Tell me, what is the best part of being you?

prayerGod: People like you. People who truly worship me. And not in that “He is Heavenly Father so I must fall to my knees or I will get punished” kind of way. But people who serve their fellow man because they have felt My presence in their life and they want to share that with others. Having that connection to them, that is the most amazing part. You know what I am talking about, we have that connection. It is just as indescribable to me as it is to you.

Me: What is the most difficult part of being you?

God: The hatred. The hatred of me, my commandments, my Son, my gospel but most of all the hatred you guys have for one another. To sit there and watch as you guys destroy each other does more than just make me angry, it hurts me to my very core. Of course, to see my Son vilified the way He has also hurt deeply. He gave up everything for you guys and yet His name is constantly drug through the mud. The hate on this planet is almost tangible. You can almost reach out your hand and touch it. It is the most difficult part because most of the time there is no reason for the hate, it is just there.

Me: I agree the hate on this planet is overwhelming. But you mentioned Jesus, so let’s talk about him. You said it is difficult to see how vilified he has become. It must’ve been extremely difficult to watch him die. What was that like for you?

Jesus StatueGod: It was the most unbearable thing I have ever had to go through. People think because I am omniscient that somehow that means I am devoid of feeling or getting lost in a single moment. That is not the case, just because I know what is to come doesn’t mean I don’t have the capacity to feel pain about an event that is presently occurring. When Jesus died, the world went black because that is how I felt, black and empty. Watching my son be beaten, tortured and crucified didn’t hurt less because I knew in three days he would be resurrected. When He was going through that, in my heart and mind, those three days were lightyears away, there was just him hanging on a cross. When he did resurrect, there was so much joy. Then I knew everything was alright and when He ascended to Heaven, well that was more than happiness, joy or peace. It was completeness. My son was Home.

Me: Being that the Plan of Salvation called for the death of your Son, why give us Christ? Why not just let us die in our sins?

God: I didn’t give you Christ. Jesus or rather Yeshua, loved his brothers and sisters so much that He decided to sacrifice himself for you. The Plan of Salvation was His plan, not mine. I didn’t want my son to die. I didn’t want any of my children to die. But I could not refuse his act of honor and love. I knew it had to be His way. His way allowed all of you to make a decision to follow Christ or not and in doing so finding your way back to me. However,  it was the “or not” part that worried me. That meant I could potentially lose some of my children. I didn’t want that. I loved all of you, but I also knew I couldn’t force you to come back home. That would make you my slaves and not my children. The thought that some of you would turn from me broke my heart, but I had to allow you the choice and risk losing you altogether.

Me: I am a mother, I get it. It is not always easy to do the right thing for your children. Thank you for sharing this with us, do you think it will change how people see you?

God: Truthfully, no. People who see me as this cold, unfeeling entity will still see me that. People who see me as this mean, scary God they are forced to worship will still see me that way. People, like you, who are open to the idea that I am not what the world paints of me, well they won’t be surprised. The Bible is my Word. I gave that to you so you would have a clearer understanding of who I was. It was my guidebook to this life. And it was to help forge a connection between us. It is a necessary and vital part of understanding me but it is not the only part of me. And it is not completely me.

Me: Do you ever wish you could stop being God? I know for human beings, when things get too rough, we have you to go to. We can wish ourselves to Heaven and imagine a better world with you. But what do you? Where do you go?

God: Even if I could stop being God, I don’t know how to do it. So now I don’t wish I could stop. That would mean leaving all you and I love all of you to much to leave. As for where I go, just wherever I want to. If Heaven is not where I want to be, there are infinitesimal other worlds I can go to. In fact, Heaven is not exactly one place, it is wherever I am. I can always hear you guys, I can always answer your prayers no matter where I am.

Me: One last question. Since my whole world revolves around politics, I want to know. Are you political?

God: If you mean am I Republican or Democrat? No. I don’t limit myself by such insignificant titles. However, if you mean do I have a say in what I think is good for all my children, even in terms of public policy, then yes. And you can find those answers in the Bible, the Book of Mormon, etc. I don’t hide what I think needs to be done to have a good, happy and fulfilled life. For instance, do children need a mother and a father? Yes. Do children always have a mother and a father? No, but you don’t smash the ideal simply because not everyone has it. Do I care about marriage? Yes. I set it up so man and woman would be equal partners in the creation of the world. Should anyone be able to marry anyone? No, I gave you parameters for a reason to say they are not important will be your downfall. Does sin still exist? Yes. Should it be glorified and held up as normal? No. If you want more answers than that, read your Scriptures.

Me: Thank you for answering these questions. I love you, God.

God: I love you too, Dena and thank you for taking time to learn about me. I love it.

 

 

 

Heterosexual Pride Day: What Is It?

Yesterday  ended Gay Pride Month, or is LGBT Pride Month, truthfully I could not tell you. But whatever it is called, it started with Clinton and has been recognized by every President since, even George W. Bush. It is a way to recognize all the great thing this community has done. However, whatever great things they may have done they did not accomplish because they slept with the same sex, if sleeping with people was all it took to achieve greatness then every prostitute alive is the greatest person who ever lived!

Gay prideYet on Twitter and other social media outlets, #Heterosexual Pride Day hashtags started making the rounds. Infuriating those who were gay. Especially since Orlando has just taken place earlier in the month many saw it as a slap in the face. However, the tweet picked up speed across the internet as these things do. Gays say that straights are not discriminated against. That is not true. Everyone is discriminated against at some point in their life. According to the FBI Hate Crimes Report race is the most predominant factor when it comes hate crimes, not sexual orientation as gays would like you to believe.

Among single-bias hate crime incidents in 2014, there were 3,227 victims of racially motivated hate crime. • 62.7 percent were victims of crimes motivated by their offenders’ anti-Black or African American bias.  So that is 2023.3 Blacks that had hate crimes committed against them.

Of the 1,248 victims targeted due to sexual-orientation bias: • 56.3 percent were victims of crimes motivated by their offenders’ anti-gay (male) bias. The total figures show you are three times less to be victimized for being gay than being Black. The grand total for gays is 702.6. FBI

As Camilla Paglia pointed out: Shrilly self-interested and doctrinaire, gay activism is completely lacking in philosophical perspective. Its sorrow became the only sorrow, its disease the only disease.”

And  while straight bashing may not be to the degree that gay bashing is, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t happen at all.  Of the 1,248 victims targeted due to sexual-orientation bias: • 1.5  percent were victims of anti-heterosexual bias. Gays may have angered at the thought of straights taking away their day and thought the whole thing to be ridiculous but the whole premise of taking pride of who you sleep is ridiculous to us as well. And if it the whole idea of pride is the right to exist without prosecution is the true cause, well that is a lot more sensible, but if that is the case they have a funny way of showing it.

The majority of news outlets that highlight the stories of  gays being thrown off the roof in Muslim countries it has been on conservative ones, not liberal ones.

 

The photos show the victim, who is believed to be in his twenties, abruptly launched off of the building face first to his death.

There are at least six documented cases of similar incidents, where men ISIS accused of being gay have been thrown off of a tall building as punishment.

In January and February, men accused of being homosexuals were thrown off of a building to large crowds below. On both occasions, the men survived the fall but were then stoned to death by the mobs on the streets.
Breitbart

So how is it they care about persecution when they refuse to talk about these things? When Orlando happened, there were people blaming Christians and not the Muslim who killed the 49 people? How is that fighting persecution? That seems like cowardice to me. It is much easier to fight Heterosexual Pride Day because that takes no real effort or courage to do so. It is just a tweet, nothing more. It takes a lot more heart to stand up to ISIS and countries that literally say gays have no right to exist and then make good on that threat.

No one deserves persecution, not gays, not anyone. But if gay pride is really about your right to exist without persecution then it time to show it. It is time to stop worrying about silly tweets like Heterosexual Pride Day or Christian bakers that don’t want to bake wedding cakes for gay weddings and start worry about your brothers and sisters that are being killed every day, a half a world away. It is time to admit you are not “oppressed” here, whatever troubles you think you have here are in no way comparable to the true persecution your gay brothers and sisters have in places like Raqqa. In America, you do have a right to exist without persecution and one Heterosexual Pride tweet doesn’t change that truth.

 

Darryl Glenn Announces His Bid for U.S Senate

Darryl-Glenn-jpg

The race for the Senate has exploded in the state of Colorado. A Tea Party-backed conservative has taken the lead in the highly contested race. Darryl Glenn has Ted Cruz supporting his candidacy.

According to CNN:

Cruz described Glenn as a “constitutional conservative” who will “take on the D.C. establishment.”
“I am proud to stand with the grassroots in Colorado supporting Darryl Glenn in his campaign for the U.S. Senate,” Cruz said in a statement Friday. “He is a constitutional conservative with the experience to understand what it takes to bring back economic growth and preserve our individual liberties. I am confident he will go to Washington to fight for those values, and he won’t back down.”
His competition is the  Democratic incumbent, Michael Bennet. This is truly a David and Goliath situation where everyone is thinking that Glenn has little chance of winning because he is going against the “political giant” Michael Bennet. Of course, Michael is only a giant in terms of cash flow, not necessarily in terms of principles, especially if he is a strict adherent to the Democratic platform.
Moolenaar

wcmu.org

Getting financial support has been a stumbling block for Glenn. According to the Denver Post on June 8th, Green only had 50,000 dollars in support but that was before Ken Cuccinelli  “jumped in on Glenn’s behalf with $500,000 in support.” And while that is quite a jump in support, it still doesn’t come close to the 5.7 million Bennet has for his campaign.  Of course, people who think all you need is money to win an election don’t know about John Moolenaar. If anyone is proof that you can win an election even when your opponent outspends you it is John Moolenaar.

In the 2014 Congressional race for Michigan’s 4th District, Moolenaar’s opponent, Paul Mitchell (no, not the hair guy) went into debt the tune of $3 million while John Moolenaar had a total of $567,108. [John Moolenaar] And that is not including the nearly 3/4 of a million dollars he received in free advertising from PACs that were just endorsing him. John, like Glenn, was also Tea Party and had a large group of supporters backing him. That is what won him the election, not the money.
Another thing the two had in common is that they both had prominent conservative figures backing their campaigns, with Ted Cruz backing Glenn despite the suspension of his campaign, there are still enough ardent Cruz supporters that they may actually be an asset to Glenn winning the race over Bennet. While people might think that Hillary’s lead over Donald in the Presidential race means that the Democrats have more clout.
The truth is a lot of people who are in the Hillary camp are only there because they hate Trump, not because they like Hillary. However, with Cruz it is a much different story, even with his suspension his supporters still want him to re-enter the race. There is a movement to get the delegates to vote their conscience and vote for Cruz at the Republican Convention and have Cruz be the official candidate despite the 1237 required delegate votes already won by Donald Trump. This sort of dedication could only benefit Glenn in the long run if he could get Cruz supporters to become Glenn supporters.
Another drawback is that the GOP doesn’t completely endorse Glenn nor does Glenn completely support the GOP. In fact, he is “a self-described unapologetic Christian constitutional conservative who has said he doesn’t see the value in compromising with Democrats — has vowed already to oppose McConnell if the Kentucky Republican tries to keep his leadership post. And McConnell has his own issues with Glenn’s allies.” The pundits are saying because of his staunch ideology he doesn’t have the capacity to reach out to the moderates in this country.
Of course, when it comes to moderates, King had it right when he said: First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate.” And while King may have highlighted the White moderate, the truth is it is applicable to all moderates of all colors. They are the greatest stumbling block towards our freedom.
In conclusion, while the Tea Party is far from dead like its leftist rival, Occupy Wall Street, it is not inundated with money either which makes it difficult to get people that are anti-establishment like Glenn elected. However, we have seen that with enough support that should not be a total hindrance to getting elected. Glenn might surprise everyone and become the next constitutional conservative Republican Senator for the great state of Colorado. Let’s hope so.

The Consequences of the SCOTUS Decision

lots-of-babiesYesterday the SCOTUS case  WHOLE WOMAN’S HEALTH ET AL. v. HELLERSTEDT, COMMISSIONER, TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF STATE HEALTH SERVICES, ET AL  was finally decided. As typical of SCOTUS, they came down on the wrong side of history. Just like they did when they decided Plessy vs. Ferguson, Dred Scott vs. Sanford, Roe v. Wade, Doe vs. Bolton, Hodges vs. Obergefell and now this. SCOTUS has quite a history interpreting law in such a fashion that it devalues human life not upholds it. This decision is no different.

So let me tell about the inevitable consequences of the SCOTUS decision. It is going to kill women.  SCOTUS wrote in its decision: We have found nothing in Texas’ record evidence that shows that, compared to prior law (which required a “working arrangement” with a doctor with admitting privileges), the new law advanced Texas’ legitimate interest in protecting women’s health. 

I hate abortion absolutely despise it, but if you say you care about women’s health why would you not want women to have the best possible conditions to have an abortion in? Places that safe, sanitary and put the interest of the woman first. Let me tell you about some women who died because of shoddy abortionists who cared more about getting paid and not about the woman on the table.

Barbara Auerbach

Barbara was 38 years old. On December 11, 1982, she went to a New York hospital for the following procedures: an abortion and a tubal ligation. Two days later she was discharged from the hospital and four days later she started suffering from other complications. She was having back pain, vomiting and she was unable to hold her bladder. At this point, she was admitted to Princeton Medical Center. Doctors tried desperately to save her life but she died within a mere three hours of being admitted to the hospital. When the autopsy was performed it was found that she “had an obstruction in her small bowel, was caused a massive infection throughout her body.” [Real Choice]

Now as you can see all this transpired in a hospital setting. But there are many cases where woman/girl died because they arrived at the hospital too late if the hospital was called at all. The truth is a lot of the time the staff at abortion clinics are told not to call the hospital.

In part two of this video, Joy Davis who was an associate of Dr. Tommy Tucker and ran six of his clinics, talks about a time a patient of her clinic was bleeding badly and she couldn’t stop it.  Joy told Mr. Tucker (I refuse to call any person who kills children for a living-doctor) that he was needed, the patient was bleeding badly and she couldn’t stop it. She was told by him that he was busy and she just needed to fix it. She went back and tried to stop the bleeding once more. Still unable to and wanting to save the girl’s life, she called an ambulance to take her to the hospital. When Mr. Tucker found out he became upset with Joy, canceled the ambulance and told her, “We can’t send her to the hospital in that condition, they will hang us.” The ambulance was eventually called but the girl ended up dying. At that point, she went to the police.

Joy continues her story. When she turned herself in for practicing without a license and gave the DA the file of Mr. Tucker’s negligence they told her they wanted more evidence and for her to keep working there, but nothing ever happened. When she finally confronted them, she was told, “Abortion is a hot button issue and we don’t want to touch it.”  So please don’t insult my intelligence, SCOTUS!

 

Of course, there is no record of deaths, they are covered up. “In the late 1980’s, Kevin Sherlock, an investigative reporter who specializes in public document searches, undertook an extensive review of death certificates for women of reproductive age in Los Angeles County. Looking for indications of “therapeutic misadventure,” he pulled autopsy reports and was able to find 29 abortion-related deaths in L.A. County alone between 1970 and 1987. Four of these deaths occurred during a one-year period for which the CDC reported zero abortion-related deaths for the entire state of California and only 12 deaths for the whole country.” The Cover Up of Abortion Deaths

This article was published in 2000 but let’s be honest, if Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts what is the likelihood that they are reporting deaths at their clinics?  Not very likely. To say that abortion clinics should not be held to same rigorous regulations that we hold all other surgical centers does not say you value women’s health. It says you value the Almighty Dollar more. It says that as a poor, Black woman (because let’s face it those are the women getting abortions) I do not deserve the same kind of care that a rich, White woman getting her breast enhanced does! This SCOTUS sends the wrong message to women. It is not about any “undue burden.” It is about patient safety.

If you are truly pro-choice then you should be fighting for women to receive better care not worse. The abortion industry has been getting away with injuring, maiming and killing women since 1973. Women like Angelica Duarte, a 21-year-old woman who  on November 1, 1991, was  undergoing an abortion per doctor’s orders due to health problems. She was given no care following her abortion but  was supposedly kept under “observation.” She was “rushed to the hospital  by paramedics at 7:30 that evening but she was dead on arrival.”  The spokesman for the hospital  said that she had lost 90 percent of her blood and that her uterus had perforated (something extremely common in the abortion industry.) And what did the medical board say after reviewing Angelica’s death?  “Thompson (the abortionist) did not have adequate equipment for post-operative care and revoked his license.” Angelica Duarte

So wait a minute, they didn’t have the equipment necessary to save her life?  The one that SCOTUS just said was an undue burden and unnecessary? But that is okay, SCOTUS says women don’t die because of that but what Angelica did. I am confused. Now I could go on forever and ever. I have a list of over two hundred names, so if you really need more drop me a line, I will be glad to go over my entire list with you. But as you can see SCOTUS has never been a human rights advocate and has always ruled on behalf the of the powerful, not the powerless. In fact, the current Supreme Court as it currently stands needs to go! I love the Founding Fathers but the Supreme Court is the one area of our governmental structure they got wrong! And SCOTUS continues to prove how wrong they were!

 

 

Birthing Zika: The Zika Virus and Birth Defects

IMAG0223Every season UCLA Health publishes a magazine called “Vital Signs.” In it, it talks about important health information for people to know, especially its patients who use UCLA on an ongoing basis for their health care needs. In the Spring Issue, it discusses the Zika Virus. This article will give you a brief look at what it is and how it can infect the lives of babies.

Most of what I will be talking about will be coming straight  out of UCLA’s Vital Signs magazine and given that UCLA is one of the premier research hospitals, I think we can safely assume the information is correct as we currently understand Zika.

IMAG0218Like its “cousin” Malaria, the Zika virus is found through the bite of mosquitoes. But it is not your average mosquito, it is the Aedes mosquito in particular. The Aedes is not just responsible for the Zika Virus but for dengue and chikungunya. (Okay that last one sounds like a form of chicken gonorrhea, but regardless stay away from mosquitoes.)   Experts are saying we should not worry about Zika Virus too much because it is not as likely to happen in the United States for the following reasons:

  1. “The Zika Virus has spread throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.” That in itself means it is highly unlikely to occur in the United Sates.  The article goes on to say, “Only a few cases of Zika infection have been reported in the United States, mostly in people who traveled to impacted areas and some from sexual contact with an infected person who had returned from South America.”
  2. The United States has vast experience dealing with mosquito born illnesses. Some of those illnesses are vastly more dangerous than the Zika virus. “Zika virus is a fairly mild illness compared to malaria, tuberculosis or dengue fever; those are infections that cause millions of deaths a year.”
  3. While certainly irritating, to most of the adults that get it, it is not lethal. So if you are ever stricken with Zika, you are not going to immediately croak. There is plenty that can be done to help you overcome it. “In men and non-reproductive women, the Zika virus is fairly harmless.”

IMAG0217All that being said there is  one group that the virus particularly lethal for and that is unborn children.  Unborn children are always at risk of getting potentially fatal diseases, it is because depending on the stage of the pregnancy unborn children either have no immune system or a very limited one. Conversely, there are times when Mom is sick and the baby has made her healthier. I have heard stories of women with kidney problems who start to do better because the baby’s kidney’s help do what Mom can’t.

Doctors are unsure of why Zika virus in unborn children causes birth defects. “Unfortunately, we don’t yet understand the frequency or the full scope of harm; to the unborn baby,”says Lydia Lee, MD a maternal-fetal medicine specialist.” However, the virus seems to be linked to cases of microcephaly. That is when the “baby’s head is smaller than expected and the brain may not develop normally.”  Because there have been so few cases in the United States and even less by pregnant women, it makes it difficult to determine what factors may be involved in causing the birth defects in the first place.

Pregnant women who have come in contract with people from impacted areas should see a doctor, just to make sure that everything is fine. While the Zika virus is harmless for the majority of the population, it is not for pregnant women and care needs to be paid when it can affect the health of  your unborn child.

 

 

 

The Third Amendment and Abortion

People know the first amendment and they know the second, but ask someone if they know the third and you will get a blank stare. No one knows the third amendment because they feel it is immaterial to our way of life now.However, what you may not know is that one little amendment changed the world. It was part of that “penumbra of privacy” that gave us Roe w. Wade.  So what is the Third amendment?

Amendment III

No soldier shall, in time, of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time, of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

If you look at it plainly, it just says a soldier cannot take over your house, which was a problem during the Revolutionary days. However, that doesn’t happen today so why should we care? Because that “penumbra of privacy”  didn’t start with Roe v. Wade, it started with the one who got the whole ball rolling: “The Supreme Court has never had occasion to decide a case based solely on the Third Amendment, though the Court has cited its protections against the quartering of soldiers as a basis for the constitutional right to privacy (Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. 479, 85 S. Ct. 1678, 14 L. Ed. 2d 510 [1965]). Third Amendment

So what is Griswold vs. Connecticut? This is from the case brief of Griswold vs. Connecticut: Appellants, the Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood League of Connecticut [always comes back to these monsters doesn’t it?], and its medical director, a licensed physician, were convicted as accessories for giving married persons information and medical advice on how to prevent conception and, following examination, prescribing a contraceptive device or material for the wife’s use.

Griswold was a “test case.” That means they deliberately broke the law in order to get the law changed. No one  had really suffered any damages on either side, which is usually a requirement to bring any case before any court. This was the case that ended  what was known as the Comstock Act. The Comstock Act  were laws that forbidden birth control and even the publication of it. Margaret Sanger actually went to jail because of the Comstock Act.

Several states, including New York, banned The Woman Rebel for its controversial advocacy of birth control. In 1914, Sanger was arrested for violating postal obscenity laws under the 1873 Comstock Act, which had made it illegal to send “obscene, lewd, or lascivious” printed material through the US mail.  Harvard  Of course, the Comstock Act just didn’t include printed material but “medical devices” as well.

Anthony Comstock“A devout Christian, he [Anthony Comstock] was appalled by what he saw in the city’s streets. It seemed to him that the town was teeming with prostitutes and pornography. In the late 1860s, Comstock began supplying the police with information for raids on sex trade merchants and came to prominence with his anti-obscenity crusade. Also offended by explicit advertisements for birth control devices, he soon identified the contraceptive industry as one of his targets. Comstock was certain that the availability of contraceptives alone promoted lust and lewdness.” Comstock

The article continues:  “In 1872 Comstock set off for Washington with an anti-obscenity bill, including a ban on contraceptives, that he had drafted himself. On March 3, 1873, Congress passed the new law, later known as the Comstock Act. The statute defined contraceptives as obscene and illicit, making it a federal offense to disseminate birth control through the mail or across state lines.” (ibid)

Without Griswold vs. Connecticut, there could be no Roe v. Wade or Doe v. Bolton. Here is an excerpt from the opinion of Roe v. Wade: ” Appellant would discover this right in the concept of personal “liberty” embodied in the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause; or in personal, marital, familial, and sexual privacy said to be protected by the Bill of Rights or its penumbras, see Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. 479 (1965); Eisenstadt v. Baird, 405 U.S. 438 (1972); id. at 460 (WHITE, J., concurring in result); or among those rights reserved to the people by the Ninth Amendment, Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. at 486 (Goldberg, J., concurring). Before addressing this claim, we feel it desirable briefly to survey, in several aspects, the history of abortion, for such insight as that history may afford us, and then to examine the state purposes and interests behind the criminal abortion laws.”

What they  “discovered” is that because Greece had loose abortion laws that we should somehow emulate the Greeks. The Greeks and the Romans both threw Christians to the lions maybe we should start doing that as well.

The  “penumbra of privacy” that was supposed to protect our lives from the government literally coming  in through our front doors and taking the lives of others is being used for almost that exact person.  It is ironic that the third amendment, the amendment that time forgot, the one no one ever remembers is the that was used to do the most harm to the most vulnerable. The third ammendment was created to protect our families, it is now being used to destroy our families. The “penumbra of privacy” has bcome the “penumbra of death.” It is time that the constitution was not twisted in some grotesque variation of liberty where one man’s liberty is another man’s death. It is time to RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION!
