But Christmas Overcomes… No Room At Inn For Babies Threatened By Alabama Pro-Abort Win

December 17, 2017 Frontpage No Comments


A new permissive abortion extremist Democrat destined for the U.S. Senate after the December 12 special election in Alabama isn’t much of a gift to commemorate the Christmas birth of a child. But situations seemed bleak at some other Christmases, too, including the first, when there was no room at the inn for eventually triumphant Him.
Exactly 36 years ago, on December 13, 1981, the Communist government of Poland declared martial law, hoping to abort people’s defiance of Marxist totalitarianism. The defiance had begun concretely the previous year with the conception of the unprecedented independent trade-union movement Solidarity.
Under martial law, Solidarity leaders including already famous workingman Lech Walesa quickly were arrested and isolated. By shortly after that Christmas, Solidarity appeared crippled. However, people’s defiance continued.
By mid-1983 martial law was lifted. Communism later began to crumble throughout Eastern Europe. In December 1990, nine years after martial law clamped down, the former shipyard laborer Walesa was elected president of Poland.
Poland in 1981 and the United States in 2017 aren’t identical. The U.S. isn’t struggling to free itself from a Communist dictatorship. But both nations featured a powerful, entrenched, corrupt political system fighting to preserve itself while harming the populace.
Both were determined to marshal whatever forces they could to survive. But the Polish Communist police state eventually was overcome by the strongly Catholic-flavored Solidarity and people’s demands that “We want God.” Will Americans be able to produce comparable power?
The Alabama race was complicated by the fact that not only were Democrats fighting to win, but establishment Republicans were determined that their own party’s popularly chosen nominee, Roy Moore, should lose, even though they knew this would decrease the GOP’s slim Senate majority by one, to 51 to 49.
Right up to Election Day, allies of standpatter Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) tossed about threats to undermine Moore’s chances by saying that if he was victorious, he’d be denied entry to the Senate or immediately investigated over his ethics.
McConnell wasn’t a bit happy that his own choice for the seat, the heavily funded but ethically challenged GOP incumbent Luther Strange, had lost a runoff, and that President Trump’s former White House chief strategist, Steve Bannon, backed Moore.
Many conservatives said that if McConnell had refrained from meddling in Alabama to make the results suit himself, the outcome could have been better, especially considering Alabama’s preference for Republicans at the national level — including Trump.
An especially repellent scene during the Alabama special election was radical pro-abortion Democrat Doug Jones, a Planned Parenthood lackey, daring to present himself to black audiences, seeking their votes — even though PP was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger to raise “a race of thoroughbreds” and pull up “human weeds,” which Sanger saw as disfavored ethnic and racial groups.
Black pro-lifers long have noted the disproportionately high abortion rates among blacks. By no coincidence, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, targets minority communities. Much of the next generation of blacks literally is being thrown into the trash at abortion clinics.
An impartial news media would have demanded that Democrat Jones explain or defend his vote-hungry appearances before black audiences whose own family members his PP allies not only want to, but do, abort by the millions.
However, dominant news media aren’t impartial. They are allied ideologically with the abortion jihad. If Jones had had his way, say 25 or 30 years ago, many of his Alabama audience members in 2017 already would have been killed at abortuaries.
Still, open-borders, globalist GOP U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, of Arizona, grotesquely tweeted that Jones’ victory meant “Decency wins”! To which conservative Sebastian Gorka, a former White House deputy to Trump, replied, “Actually infanticide won, you sham.”
Jones’ appalling tactic caused no worry to pro-Democrat partisan media, who instead had decided they must destroy Jones’ opponent, Moore.
Incessantly they hammered on recently sprung, unproven accusations that Moore had been a sexual harasser decades ago — even though such accusations never had been made during Moore’s long, prominent public career in Alabama, not even during the recent Republican primary-election runoff of September 26, where Moore beat Strange.
Only after Republicans were locked into the choice of Moore as their candidate for the December special election did the accusers come forth, with prominent left-wing Democrat feminist attorney Gloria Allred on hand.
Moore hardly was alone in facing sexual-harassment accusations these days, even though the majority of the accused were liberal Democrats, with the cases against them stronger or even confessed to. Why did the decades-long sex-abuse misdeeds of these liberals quite suddenly become an acceptable target for partisan Democratic media?
Perhaps a bigger game was afoot — just as hyper-partisan Barack Obama had been willing to sacrifice Democratic congressmen’s own re-elections in 2010 in order to shove through his massive and now tenacious government entitlement of Obamacare.
Was targeting sex abuse yet another avenue for the media-government power structure to try to bring down its archenemy, Trump, after it appeared that its contrived effort was collapsing to nail Trump on colluding with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton for president in 2016?
The media had turned sex accusations on and off like a spigot before. Left-wing journalists and politicians raised a fury over alleged sex harassment in 1991 to try to prevent the respected conservative federal judge Clarence Thomas from being confirmed to the Supreme Court. But Thomas courageously, successfully defended himself against their “high-tech lynching.”
However, no sooner did liberal Democrat sex predator Bill Clinton subsequently become president than the national power establishment lost interest in howling against sex offenses.

Pants On Fire!

Conservative GOP political consultant Constantin Querard told The Wanderer that Jones’ victory “will hurt in the short term for sure,” but attempts to make his win seem more portentous are overblown.
“The national media seemed desperate to use the Alabama race to further their narrative about McConnell versus Bannon or voters versus Trump, when the race was entirely a referendum on Roy Moore,” Querard said.
“It was that way in the primary and remained that way in the general. Moore was undone by the accusations leveled against him, and that was the only reason Democrats were able to win the seat. The GOP will win the seat back the next time with even an average candidate.”
Despite Moore being hammered by dominant media, by the Democrats and significantly placed Republicans, being pummeled by unending advertising, and being outspent by a wide margin, he still came within 2 points of Jones, who, as of December 13, didn’t break past 50 percent of the vote.
The morning of December 13, conservative national radio talk host Laura Ingraham said she hadn’t endorsed Moore, had a negative feeling about him, and considered him a flawed candidate.
However, later the same day national radio host Rush Limbaugh said that Democrats assault any Republican candidate as deeply flawed, even 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Limbaugh recalled that Romney was falsely attacked as being a tax cheat whose insensitivity killed a man’s sick wife.
No less than then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said a credible but unidentified source told him “Romney has not paid taxes for 10 years.”
On August 6, 2012, even the liberal PolitiFact said, “Reid has made an extreme claim with nothing solid to back it up. Pants on Fire!” Reid later took satisfaction in his poisonous lie he let loose, commenting, “Romney didn’t win, did he?”
Limbaugh said that because the sex-harassment accusations against Roy Moore had worked, expect to see Democrats use them more, even against the innocent.
An emailer suggested that Trump needs to moderate his style, but Limbaugh didn’t think that would happen. “Trump is who he is,” he said.
More than a few conservatives probably have hoped Trump could combine his convictions with a friendlier, Reagan-style folksiness to disarm media assaults against him as a loudmouth, making hysterical media appear even more out of tune with the truth.
Indeed, blatantly lying media seem likely to grow even worse, thinking that their tactics helped defeat Moore and eventually must destroy their archenemy Trump — even as the public increasingly sees reason to believe these media are unbelievable.
Meanwhile, amid the flurry of accusations about sexual harassment, veteran pro-life conservative Cong. Trent Franks (R., Ariz.) announced his resignation after two former staff members reportedly complained that he discussed their possibly becoming surrogates to provide another child for him and his wife. One of the women reportedly said Franks offered her $5 million to carry a baby.
Conservative California commentator Barbara Simpson told The Wanderer she doubted how this could be considered sexual harassment, and doubted the dollar figure.
“Surrogate service is not that expensive and surrogacy does not involve physical contact between the male and the woman — a physician implants the fertilized egg,” Simpson said. “If, in fact, Franks made the financial offer, it sounds as though he might have been under the influence of something that gave him illusions of grandeur. The woman hearing it should have laughed, not been offended.”

Fr. Altman torches bishops

BALTIMORE ( – A fiery persecuted priest is calling U.S. bishops to account for corruption and abuse within the Catholic Church. Wisconsin priest Fr. James Altman sent a scorching message to Catholic prelates today at Church Militant’s “Bishops: Enough Is Enough” prayer rally in Baltimore.
