NY Gov. Cuomo refuses to sign state budget until lawmakers approve bill legalizing abortion for any reason until birth!!

Hillary Clinton was alongside the governor when he delivered a pro-abortion speech earlier this week.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has refused to sign the state’s 2019-20 budget until lawmakers approve a bill that would make it legal to have an abortion for any reason up until birth, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reported.

On Monday, Cuomo delivered a pro-abortion speech at Barnard College in Manhattan, where he vowed not to support the budget until the Legislature passes the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act. Hillary Clinton, former secretary of state and presidential candidate, stood alongside the governor at the event.

The 61-year-old Democrat also vowed during his speech to push an amendment to enshrine abortion in the state constitution. Cuomo first called for the constitutional amendment last year.

What does the Reproductive Health Act say?

Currently, only licensed physicians are allowed to perform an abortion, and only up to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

“Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child or have an abortion,” the Reproductive Health Act reads.

If approved, any licensed health care provider acting in “good faith” would be able to perform an abortion at any time up until birth.

Abortion would also be removed as a crime from the state’s penal code.

The bill has passed the Democrat-controlled assembly in the past, according to the Rochester Democrat. However, it stalled in the Republican-led Senate for more than a decade.

Democrats gained Senate majority after the 2018 midterm elections.

“This is only the beginning of the protections that we will have for our women, for our environment, criminal-justice reform, education — the list goes on,” state Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins said Monday, according to the report. “But in January, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we will make our statement, we will make our mark.”

1066cfd3-645f-4c8d-be20-b982f547aebf-ap19007665348132

Stewart-Cousins first sponsored the Reproductive Health Act in 2007.

What about enshrining abortion in the NY Constitution?

Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has a conservative majority, some pro-abortion lawmakers and activists fear Roe v. Wade could someday be overturned.

The bill to enshrine federal abortion rights would require a separate vote and approval by the Legislature to start the amendment process. The 2021 Legislature would also have to approve it before it could be sent to voters, who would have to pass the measure before it would become law.

What did Clinton say?

Clinton praised the governor for pushing for abortion protections, describing him as a “lifelong champion of these rights,” according to the Rochester Democrat.

“New York led the rest of the country even before Roe v. Wade in making abortion legal,” Clinton said during her speech.

“But the struggle for women’s equality is not something simply to be read about in the pages of your history books,” Clinton said. “It continues to be the fight of our lifetime.”

What about pro-life activists?

The Reproductive Health Act would remove protections for women if criminal penalties are removed for illegal abortions.

“A real concern is that if you take abortion out of the criminal code, what happens in instances of domestic violence where men abuse the women they are sharing living spaces with,” Jason McGuire, executive director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, told the Rochester Democrat.

“And we know there are heightened instances of domestic violence cases during pregnancy.”

Feminists Choosing Life of New York described the bill as”opposite of pro-woman,” in a statement.

FCNLY denounced the legislation in six letters it submitted to the New York Times in response to “A Woman’s Rights,” an op-ed published Dec. 28.

“One point of opposition is the heinous legalization of abortion during the second and third trimester of pregnancy through the inclusion of a broad health exception allowing women to abort viable fetuses for essentially any reason; including economic or familial health,” Kelly Brunacini, a member of the group’s board of directors, wrote in one of the letters posted on FCNLY’s website.

“The vast majority of Americans, including in New York, oppose these late-term abortions. As a New Yorker, Democrat and feminist, I can’t help but wonder what history will say about a people who allowed the legalized killing of fully formed human beings for the sake of exerting political dominance.”

The group’s letters have gone unpublished, according to FCNLY.

Knowingly exposing others to HIV will no longer be a felony in California

452b2a4600000578-0-image-a-1_1507558196909

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection.

The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.

Modern medicine allows those with HIV to live longer lives and nearly eliminates the possibility of transmission, according to state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), authors of the bill.

“Today California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals,” Wiener said in a statement. “HIV should be treated like all other serious infectious diseases, and that’s what SB 239 does.”

Supporters of the change said the current law requires an intent to transmit HIV to justify a felony, but others noted cases have been prosecuted where there was no physical contact, so there was an argument intent was lacking.

Brown declined to comment on his action.

HIV has been the only communicable disease for which exposure is a felony under California law. The current law, Wiener argued, may convince people not to be tested for HIV, because without a test they cannot be charged with a felony if they expose a partner to the infection.

“We are going to end new HIV infections, and we will do so not by threatening people with state prison time, but rather by getting people to test and providing them access to care,” Wiener said.

Supporters of the bill said women engaging in prostitution are disproportionately targeted with criminal charges, even in cases where the infection is not transmitted.

Republican lawmakers including Sen. Joel Anderson of Alpine voted against the bill, arguing it puts the public at risk.

“I’m of the mind that if you purposefully inflict another with a disease that alters their lifestyle the rest of their life, puts them on a regimen of medications to maintain any kind of normalcy, it should be a felony,” Anderson said during the floor debate. “It’s absolutely crazy to me that we should go light on this.”

Anderson said the answer could be to extend tougher penalties to those who expose others to other infectious diseases.

U.S. approved arrival of thousands of child brides from foreign countries

NEW YORK (FOX NEWS) – The United States has approved thousands of requests by men to bring child brides and adolescent brides from other countries. the approvals are legal because the immigration and nationality act does not set minimum age requirements.

A new U.S. Senate report, called How the U.S. Immigration System Encourages Child Marriages, is raising questions about whether our country’s immigration system encourages child marriages.

Naila Amin grew up in New York City. She is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Pakistan, where she was forced to marry her adult cousin when she was 13.

“Imagine someone is beating you and raping you every day of your life—even telling you ‘Hey, put my socks on me,'” Amin said. “He treated me like a little slave.”

child_brides_brought_to_u_s__0_6616622_ver1.0_640_360

Amin said her 26-year-old husband saw her as his passport to the United States.

“I was his lottery ticket out of Pakistan,” she said.

Amin eventually got out of the marriage but said the ordeal cost her childhood.

“I know my potential could have been so much more,” she said. “But they ruined my life.”

Some lawmakers and advocates for victims say the U.S. immigration system may be unintentionally enabling forced marriages. A loophole in immigration law has paved the way for over 8,000 child marriages, mostly to girls brought in from outside the country, according to the Senate report.

Under the law, a U.S. child may petition for a visa for a spouse or fiancé living in another country. And a U.S. adult can petition for a visa for a minor spouse or fiancée living abroad.

“So it indicates a problem,” Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, said. “It indicates a loophole that we need to close.”

The organization Unchained at Last is dedicated to ending forced and child marriage in the United States. Fraidy Reiss, the executive director, called the U.S. government “complicit” in child marriage.

“The U.S. government is encouraging child marriage with the loopholes and the laws that allow children to petition for a foreign spouse or fiancé or be the beneficiary of a foreign spouse or fiancé visa,” Reiss said.

Lawmakers on the Senate homeland security and governmental reform committee are now calling for reforms to prevent people from getting immigration benefits that facilitate child marriages.

Marriage between adults and minors is not uncommon in the United States, the AP reported. Most states allow children to marry with some restrictions. (New York is seeking to outlaw it.)

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services weighs petitions in part based on whether the marriage is legal in the spouse or fiance’s home country and whether it is legal in the state where the petitioner lives, the AP reported.

Google Reveals Plans to Monitor Our Moods, Our Movements, and Our Children’s Behavior at Home

(Photo by Todd Williamson/Getty Images for Google Home)

Patents recently issued to Google provide a window into their development activities. While it’s no guarantee of a future product, it is a sure indication of what’s of interest to them. What we’ve given up in privacy to Google, Facebook, and others thus far is minuscule compared to what is coming if these companies get their way.

These patents tell us that Google is developing smart-home products that are capable of eavesdropping on us throughout our home in order to learn more about us and better target us with advertising. It goes much further than the current Google Home speaker that’s promoted to answer our questions and provide useful information, and the Google-owned Nest thermostat that measures environmental conditions in our home. What the patents describe are sensors and cameras mounted in every room to follow us and analyze what we’re doing throughout our home.

They describe how the cameras can even recognize the image of a movie star’s image on a resident’s t-shirt, connect it to the person’s browsing history, and send the person an ad for a new movie the star is in. One patent, No. 10,114,351, reads, “According to embodiments of this disclosure, a smart-home environment may be provided with smart-device environment policies that use smart-devices to monitor activities within a smart-device environment, report on these activities, and/or provide smart-device control based upon these activities.”

So clearly they want to monitor us and report back what we are doing.

It goes on to describe an example in the usual patent legalese. But it’s worth providing here the exact description for you to see, in particular, the last sentence:

By way of example, the high-power processor 20 and the low-power processor 22 may detect when a location (e.g., a house or room) is occupied (i.e., includes a presence of a human), up to and including whether it is occupied by a specific person or is occupied by a specific number of people (e.g., relative to one or more thresholds). In one embodiment, this detection can occur, e.g., by analyzing microphone signals, detecting user movements (e.g., in front of a device), detecting openings and closings of doors or garage doors, detecting wireless signals, detecting an internet protocol (IP) address of a received signal, detecting operation of one or more devices within a time window, or the like. Moreover, the high-power processor 20 and the low-power processor 22 may include image recognition technology to identify particular occupants or objects.

In other words, the goal is to track us throughout the home — observing who is in each room, where we are moving, and what we are doing.

What’s of note is the patent that was awarded to one of Google’s star teams, associated with the development of the Nest thermostat — a breakthrough product with a microphone.

When Amazon first introduced their Alexa speaker, and Google followed with their own speaker, security experts warned that these devices could be turned around to spy on us, and that’s exactly what appears to be happening. While there are many good uses for adding sensors for home automation, the danger comes when they are being monitored and used by outside companies with an insatiable desire to know everything about us. But there’s even more. According to The Atlantic:

A second patent proposes a smart-home system that would help run the household, using sensors and cameras to restrict kids’ behavior. Parents could program a device to note if it overhears ‘foul language’ from children, scan internet usage for mature or objectionable content, or use ‘occupancy sensors’ to determine if certain areas of the house are accessed while they’re gone— for example, the liquor cabinet. The system could be set to ‘change a smart lighting system color to red and flash the lights’ as a warning to children or even power off lights and devices if they’re grounded.

“The language of these patents makes it clear that Google is acutely aware of the powers of inference it has already, even without cameras, by augmenting speakers to recognize the noises you make as you move around the house,” The Atlantic wrote. “The auditory inferences are startling: Google’s smart-home system can infer ‘if a household member is working’ from ‘an audio signature of keyboard clicking, a desk chair moving, and/or papers shuffling.’ Google can make inferences on your mood based on whether it hears raised voices or crying, on when you’re in the kitchen based on the sound of the fridge door opening, on your dental hygiene based on ‘the sounds and/or images of teeth brushing.'”

If you think our privacy is compromised now, just wait. Until there’s some legislation passed to protect our privacy, there’s no stopping companies such as Google and Facebook from learning everything about what we do and who we are and selling the information to advertisers, insurance companies, and eventually, any entity that will pay. After all, that’s their business model.

The Democrat Response

The Democrat Response

Open Borders Forever and Ever and Ever….

After watching the President present his reasonable case for border security last night, we also wanted to see how the Democrats would respond to Trump’s address.

It was a horror show.

The staging, the colors, and the stiff bug eyed looks of both Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi overwhelmed their message. A million memes were born last night.

The response had all the makings of a Stephen King novel.

The Democrat leaders appeared side by side in their rebuttal. The sullen, flat, crazy-eyed presentation was instantly noticeable and mocked by both the left and right.

Their presence resembled the “Grady Twins” from the horror movie, “The Shining”. The red walls made us think of the famous elevator scene in “The Shining” where the doors open and a ghastly wave of red blood gushes into the room.

What better metaphor for the Open Borders of our country? The “doors” are open and innocent American blood is spilled.

We must secure the border, or more blood will continue to be spilled.

Thousands of Americans have been killed by illegal aliens.

The blood is on Democrat hands.

The Democrat’s Wall of Obstruction

The Democrat’s Wall of Obstruction

The Democrats are building their own wall. It’s a growing wall of big government statism, endless war, globalism, and higher taxes that race toward socialism.

It’s a wall that blocks us from our liberties including our right to own a gun and the right to engage in free speech. It’s a wall that censors and controls minds by means of lying, fake news corporate media. It’s a wall that protects a massively corrupt Deep State from receiving justice.

Nancy Pelosi, tear down your despicable, fascist, blue wall and allow our president to construct a legitimate one along our southern border. We need a wall that protects us from an endless stream of illegal aliens coming here for free stuff as well as criminals and terrorists who come in to wreak havoc on us all.

Tonight the President will address the Nation concerning the border crisis. The Radical Left and Democrats are calling for the Mainstream Media to boycott Trump’s address by not airing it.

Remember that little kid you knew who put his fingers in his ears and shouted, “LA LA LA- I CAN’T HEAR YOU!” That’s the Left. Out of touch with reality, spoiled children throwing a tantrum.

When will they grow up?

Christian Bale thanks Satan in his Golden Globes speech!

Christian Bale picked up a Golden Globe on Sunday night, and in the process of accepting the award, threw a jab at the real-life man he portrayed in “Vice” – former Vice President Dick Cheney. He also took a shot at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role,” Bale said during his acceptance speech for Best Actor in in a Musical or Comedy.

The actor thanked director Adam McKay for choosing him to play a person that is “absolutely charisma-free.”

“Thank you to that geezer over there, Adam,” Bale teased. “He said ‘I’ve got to find someone who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody.’ So he went, ‘That’s gotta be Bale,'” the Welsh actor joked.

“For all the competition, I will be cornering the market on charisma-free a**h***s,” Bale continued. “What do you think, Mitch McConnell next?” The crowd cheered at the joke taking aim at the Senate majority leader. Bale made a similar joke during an interview with “CBS This Morning” last month. Bale and McKay spoke about the movie’s depiction of Cheney and the choice of Bale to play the former VP.

“At which point do you start thinking about Christian? While you were writing it or while you’re reading it?” co-anchor John Dickerson asked.

“When Dick Cheney’s described as a man lacking any charisma, right?” Bale joked. “That was when you went, ‘Oh, gotta be Bale.'”

Bale, who is known for physically transforming himself for roles, gained 40 pounds to play the former vice president. The dark comedy spans 50 years of Dick Cheney’s rise to power, from wild nights and bar fights as a youth in Wyoming to a Washington insider who became the most powerful vice president in history.

During his Globes speech, Bale also thanked his wife for telling him “less is more,” and then thanked his children, whom he jokingly called “Banana and Burrito.” Bale has referred to his kids by these fake names before – seemingly a joke on the outrageous names some celebrities choose for their babies.

At the end of his acceptance speech, Bale thanked his costars, including Amy Adams, who played his on-screen wife, Lynne Cheney. After thanking others, he turned to his wife in the audience and asked “Am I missing anything, darling?” which received more laughter from the crowd.
