Ohio Democrat suggests heartbeat bill exclude African American women

Ohio passed the “Heartbeat Bill” last week to make it illegal to abort a fetus once a heartbeat is detected. State Rep Janine Boyd (D) proposed an amendment that African American women should be exempted from the legislation. It was defeated.

Her argument?

Black slaves were once treated like cattle and put out to stud in order to create generations of more slaves…Our country is not far enough beyond our history to legislate as if it is.”

Note that 70% of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics are located in low income areas. While African Americans are 13% of the population, 37% of pregnancies are terminated. In NY, more black babies are aborted than born.

Who knew that abortion should be race based?

The irony in “They’re all yours, Sanctuary Cities”

Will Trump’s tactics to expose the hypocrisy of sanctuary cities work? Democrats remain stubborn over funding border security. In his view, if sanctuary cities are all publicly open arms about accepting illegals then they should be happy to welcome busloads of them. The great irony of these virtue-signalling Democrat controlled cities is that they’re upset that this reality may dawn, although publicly stating they’ll be welcome. The greater irony is that a growing number of illegal immigrants are choosing to move OUT of sanctuary cities. In 2007, 7.7mn (63.1%) lived in the 20 largest metros to 6.5mn (60.7%) in 2016 according to Pew. During that time 1.5m illegal immigrants were deported (12.2mn ->10.7mn).

Despite one’s views of illegal immigration and the use of people as political pawns, ICE has just released its 2018 statistics. The numbers are staggering.

ICE’s 2018 annual report notes the following situation at the border:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) has continued to use resources as effectively and efficiently as possible to enforce the nation’s immigration laws.

In FY2018, ERO arrested 158,581 aliens, 90% of whom had criminal convictions (66%), pending criminal charges (21%), or previously issued final orders (3%). The overall arrest figure represents an 11% increase over FY2017.

  • 2015: 101,800
  • 2016: 110,104
  • 2017: 143,470
  • 2018: 158,581

The number of individuals detained by ERO is driven by enforcement actions taken by ICE and apprehensions made by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). In FY2018, 396,448 people were initially booked into an ICE detention facility, an increase of 22.5% over FY2017.  Book-ins to detention resulting from CBP arrests increased by 32% over the previous year, illustrating a surge in illegal border crossings.

  • 2015: 307,342
  • 2016: 352,882
  • 2017: 323,591
  • 2018: 396,448

In FY2018, ERO removed 256,086 illegal aliens, reflecting an increase of 13% over FY2017. The majority of removals (57%) were convicted criminals. Additionally, 5,914 of the removed illegal aliens were classified as either known or suspected gang members or terrorists, which is a 9% increase over FY2017.

  • 2015: 235,413
  • 2016: 240,255
  • 2017: 226,119
  • 2018: 256,086

Here are some of the reasons for arrest – both criminal convictions and charges – for 2017 (2018):

  • Driving under the influence : 80,547 (80,730)
  • Dangerous drugs: 76,503 (76,585)
  • Immigration violation:  62,517 (63,166)
  • Assault: 48,454 (50,753)
  • Larceny: 20,356 (20,340)
  • Burglary: 12,836 (12,663)
  • Fraud: 12,398 (12,862)
  • Illegal weapon possession: 11,173 (11,766)
  • Sex offences: 6,664 (6,888)
  • Stolen Vehicles: 6,174 (6,261)
  • Forgery: 5,210 (5,158)
  • Homicide: 1,886 (2,028)
  • Kidnapping: 2,027 (2,085)
  • Prostitution racketeering: 1,572 (1,739)

Since the initial surge at the Southwest border (SWB) in FY2014, there has been a significant increase in the arrival of both family units (FMUAs) and unaccompanied alien children (UACs). In FY2018, approximately 50,000 UACs and 107,000 aliens processed as FMUAs were apprehended at the SWB by the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP). These numbers represent a marked increase from FY2017 when approximately 41,000 UACs and 75,000 FMUA were apprehended by USBP.

While USBP routinely turns FMUA apprehensions over to ICE for removal proceedings, ICE is severely limited by various laws and judicial actions from detaining family units through the completion of removal proceedings. For UAC apprehensions, DHS is responsible for the transfer of custody to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) within 72 hours, absent exceptional circumstances. HHS is similarly limited in their ability to detain UACs through the pendency of their removal proceedings. When these UACs are released by HHS or FMUA are released from DHS custody, they are placed onto the non-detained docket, which currently has more than 2,641,589 cases and results in decisions not being rendered for many years. Further, even when removal orders are issued, very few aliens from the non-detained docket comply with these orders and instead join an ever-growing list of 565,892 fugitive aliens.”

Switching to compassionate grounds, who wants to see screaming kids? No-one. Locked in cages? Even less. Separated? Well, there is a good reason for that. When even the likes of left-leaning HuffPo admitted in December 2014 that 80% of women and girls are sexually assaulted while trying to make it across the border there is a good reason to question the proof of identity of the supposed parents. Even if 90% of parent/children pairs are legit, what of the 10% that aren’t? Do ICE risk it? Australia had an experience of a mother from Nepal (a democracy not at war) who deliberately poured boiling water on her infant to expedite processing on the mainland. Are these the values of people we should provide refuge to? We should not forget that many people make the journey knowing ALL the risks that confront them yet still attempt it despite the warnings.

To emphasize the danger of lax screening,  multiple kids were found dead after being abandoned once across the border as their usefulness as a golden ticket on compassionate grounds was expended. If that isn’t some of the worst forms of child abuse then what is? Moreover, these people are hardly the type that decent Americans would want to embrace with open arms!

In Jan 2016 WaPo noted, “The Office of Refugee Resettlement, an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services, failed to do proper background checks of adults who claimed the children…several Guatemalan teens were found in a dilapidated trailer park near Marion, Ohio, where they were being held captive in squalid conditions by traffickers and forced to work“. So slave labour to repay human traffickers? Let’s encourage more to attempt the crossing?

Then ICE has the trouble of finding the parents/guardians (sponsors) already living (often) illegally to collect their unaccompanied children at pre-arranged court hearings. The media went into a frenzy saying that ICE had lost the records. The truth came out in Feb 2016 that,

“The head of ICE’s removal operations, Thomas Homan, told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that 7,643 immigrants who arrived as children were sent home between the 2012 and 2015 budget years…More than 171,000 children, mostly from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, were arrested at the border during that same time…The number of children caught crossing the border illegally spiked in 2014 [see impacts in NY Times graphic] and the Obama administration promised that those who were not eligible for protection in the United States would be swiftly sent home… And with an immigration court backlog of more than 474,000 pending cases, some cases can take years to move through the court system…

…about 40% of immigrants are no shows at court…Finding immigrant children with outstanding deportation orders is also complicated by the fact that they often are no longer at the addresses provided to the government.”We are out looking,” Homan said. “But they are hard to find. A lot of these folks who don’t show up in court, we don’t know where they’re at.”

The pictures of kids in concentration camp style cages were from 2014. Yet don’t let that get put in the way of a narrative to show the nationalist tendencies of the current administration.

While we can express outrage at the treatment of illegal immigrants at the border, the tougher laws have started to resonate with Ana Garcia Carias, wife of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, who said, Stay in the country and let’s look for solutions to support you. She visited the border and said that she didn’t recommend her citizens go to the US undocumented.

In summary, Americans want their borders safe. Rasmussen Reports notes that most citizens do not want to abolish ICE. The polling firm noted,

only 25% of Likely U.S. Voters favour getting rid of ICE whose duties include border control. Fifty-five percent (55%) are opposed…Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Republicans and 53% of voters not affiliated with either major political party oppose getting rid of ICE. Democrats agree by a narrower 44% to 36% margin.”

AS CM always says, if people don’t like the laws, then move to change them. Trump’s tactics are unorthodox but will expose the hypocrisy of those that push forward the idea of protecting illegal immigrants.

She should be demoted with immediate effect

And so should her superiors. Our armed forces are being turned into a joke. Commanding Officer of HMAS Albatross, Captain Fiona Sneath, has deemed the 500m walk to the Anzac memorial on Anzac Day too dangerous citing occupational health and safety. These are our brave and proud military personnel who are trained to shoot back in anger if required. CM is sure they’ll cope.

In recent years our armed forces have pushed hard on gender balance (despite strong evidence from the ADF’s own internal audit to say it is dismally failing even more so when targets were lowered), discouraged the words ‘him’ and ‘her’, we’ve banned death symbols, painted finger nails pink for diversity and the Air Force is being asked to think of the roles of women when bombing enemy targets.

The Navy has just raised the white flag of stupidity again. Are our able seamen so poorly trained they can’t walk down a well lit trail?

What do these military chiefs think China must make of all this? To invade Australia, all they’ll need is a couple of terra-cotta warriors and we’ll surrender. Our military chiefs need a major clean out. They are disgracing the proud soldiers that served and continue to serve.

And so the lunatics try to legislate

Well done the 235 Democrats and 2 left wing Republicans looking to sponsor a bill that will make it law to allow transgender students to be able to play on the team of their chosen gender. The bill is being called the Equality Act. Yes, the identity politics of the left want to defy basic biology. This is not to deny their rights to be regarded as their chosen identity but to stop this nonsense of men playing women’s sports.

The US Army conducted a study on the physical differences between men and women.

It found:

1) women had 60-70% of the isometric force of men.

2) women had 60% of the weight lifting power of men

3) women had 78% of the power/body weight of men

4) blood pumps through a woman’s heart at 30% less than a man

5) women have 6% fewer red blood cells and 10-14% less hemoglobin than men meaning recovery rates are slower because males have more oxygen in the system.

Whatever one thinks of the Equality Act, Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps could have easily identified as a woman and cleaned up gold in all the same Olympic events they swept in the men’s equivalents. Would the world have been happy with that? Heavyweight boxing perhaps?

While we are littered with examples of men identifying as women competing in women’s sports there are next to no examples of the reverse. If the Democrats did their homework they’d realize there are numerous women who identify as women compete against men. Some winning without distorting biological reality.

21yo Spanish rider Ana Carrasco became the first woman to win a world championship in motorcycle racing. She won the World Supersport 300s crown. If there was ever a better display of rising to a challenge in a sport dominated by males, this was it!

CM wrote in January about her first ever race win last year on equal machines with the boys. Shows that grit, determination and skill can make the difference without this recent desire to throw handicaps to even it out. Great job indeed to win on identical bikes. CM remembers seeing her in 2015 on the RBA Racing Moto3 bike in Motegi. Impressive.

We shouldn’t forget the performance of Michele Mouton who finished runner up in the 1982 World Rally Championship against an all male field with zero free kicks? She won four races in the season. Call it raw talent. She didn’t require complex formulas, spreadsheets and laws to give her a handicap. She won on her own merits.

Isn’t that the thrill of competition? To compete on equal terms even if the underdog?

Spare a thought for the poor girls who train hard that may never achieve what they were rightfully owed because of gender based identity politics supported by government.

Fauxahontas is polling 3rd in Massachusetts

Democratic 2020 presidential nomination hopeful Elizabeth Warren is polling 3rd in her home state of Massachusetts. So much for her attempts to run.

Perhaps being 1/1024th Native American and writing same on a Texas bar registration card might have something to do with it.

Trump looks more certain by the day to win 2020 if the Dems continue to show no strategy or policy other than to hate POTUS. Biden is toast, Warren doubtful and Harris looks flakey post Smollett.

Surely Hollywood celebrity Alec Baldwin’s pledge to win in 2020 only shows how hopeless their cause is. If Hollywood doubts the current crop, what hope have the Dems got in 2020? Wheel Hillary our again? Things are so bad even Obama is calling on party faithful to stop the circular firing squad. And they call Trump stupid!?

Ted Lieu smears Owens as a supporter of Hitler but refuses right of reply

So true to form, Democrat House Rep from California Ted Lieu, tried to smear Candace Owens as a supporter of Hitler with an edited recording which took all context away from the question she was being asked of her.

Such was the circus, Lieu provided Owens no right of reply. It took another member of Congress to yield their time so she could answer.

More embarrassing was Chairman Jerry Nadler (D) incorrectly censuring her for calling Lieu “stupid” when in fact she questioned whether Rep Lieu “thought black people were stupid and would not pursue the full clip in its entirety.” She quipped it was OK for them to call her “despicable

So desperate are the Democrats looking to paint narratives of division that they only need to stare in the mirror to see where it is coming from. How could Lieu make the claim that he knew nothing about Owens yet managed to have an edited recording?

Even if his team supplied it, it would have made sense for the Rep to do his homework on the subject matter save him getting slapped down by the eloquence of Owens. She was right to call his refusal to allow a reply as telling as to she was to criticize him for being “unbelievably dishonest“.

Maybe Lieu might reflect on hate crime as reported by the FBI in his own community.

Anti-Asian hate crime has fallen from a peak of 527 in 1996 to 131 in 2017. In 2017, Asians were 0.00069% likely to suffer a hate crime relative to the Asian American population.

White Nationalism – Candace Owens torches the Democrats

Candace Owens, a black conservative, torched the Democratic Party in front of the House Judiciary Committee. Her aim was to dispel the myths around hate crime (which she noted the mainstream media refused to cover an Antifa assault against her), the black community and the perpetual policy platforms that try to keep minorities, like those of her heritage, as victims.

Her grandfather, who sat behind her, was a victim of segregation but Owens said he never raised her with a victim mentality and always told her to strive for what she wanted. He never once mentioned whites when she grew up. Powerful speech.

CM covered hate crime in charts a few months back. Overall hate crime is sharply lower than two decades ago, in absolute and percentage terms.

CM also covered a race baiting article by the New York Times suggesting unconscious bias in school discipline last year. It wasn’t if one bothers to do the statistics.

Or how the media ignored a Rasmussen Report which found Black Americans feeling better under Trump than Obama.

Or when Nancy Pelosi was hot mic’d telling Andre Wilson to let the audience know he was a Muslim. What relevance was that other than to stir a culture of victim hood?

Or Maxine Waters calling for the left to kick Trump officials from restaurants, gas stands and public places.

How about all those Democrats like Kamala Harris, Maxine Waters and Corey Booker rallied behind Jussie Smollett to cook up fears of rising white nationalism only to live in denial once the narrative was completely debunked? Mad Maxine even supported Smollett after the charges were dropped. Yet the Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson was not laughing.

Would it have suited Waters to have the CPD lie about the hoax to whip up more division to feed a narrative that is on the decline? Exactly who is dog whistling?

We need more Candace Owens in the world. Prople that don’t cry for free hand outs because of something that happened before they were born. No doubt she will be branded an Uncle Tom and a sell-out but despite all attempts to shut her down she stands by the content of her character, not the colour of her skin. Bravo.
