School Hires Combat Vets With Semiautomatic Rifles to Protect Students From Active Shooters

A school in Florida is taking school safety so seriously that it has hired two combat veterans armed with semiautomatic rifles to patrol and guard the campus against potential threats, according to The New York Times.

Manatee School for the Arts in Palmetto, Florida, hired the school guardians to comply with state legislation requiring schools to have at least one “safe-school” officer. Principal Bill Jones said they have good reason to go above and beyond the minimum requirements.

“We’re not looking for a fair fight,” Jones said of potential active shooter situations. “We’re looking at an overwhelming advantage.”

One of the guards has 15 years of infantry experience, and the second veteran guardian will start working later in February. Jones wanted combat veterans who can be trusted to react quickly and correctly under fire. . .

“Assault rifles, whether you are for them or against them, are prolific in our society,” Chief Scott Tyler said in December to the Herald-Tribune. “So why would we not want the school guardian to have parity with that potential threat?” (Read more from “Florida School Hires Combat Vets With Semiautomatic Rifles to Protect Students From Active Shooters” HERE)

Mom Carries Dying Baby to Term Despite Prognosis. What She Did Next Blessed Countless Lives.

By The Blaze. Krysta Davis was four months pregnant when she received the heart-shattering news: Her baby had a rare disorder and was expected to live only minutes after she was born. . .

Doctors gave Davis and her boyfriend, Dereck Lovett, just two options. They could induce labor immediately or have the baby and donate her organs. Davis and Lovett decided on the latter.

“We decided that even if we couldn’t bring our daughter home, no mother would have to go through what we were going to go through,” Davis, of Cleveland, Tennessee, told People magazine.

Their daughter, Rylei, was expected to live about 30 minutes after birth. Instead, she survived one week. . .

Most babies with Rylei’s condition don’t survive childbirth, said Dr. Kyle Gonzales, a maternal fetal medicine doctor at Erlanger Hospital, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where Rylei was born. The hospital sees babies with Anencephaly about once every year, and none of them survive, Gonzales told the TV station.

“She’s a Hero”: Cleveland Baby Defies Odds, Saves Two Children

By News Channel 9. A Cleveland family is turning their worst day into hope for other families. Rylei Arcadia Lovett was born at Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga on Christmas Eve. . .

Doctors told them if carried to full-term, they could donate her organs to save other children. Davis and Lovett looked at each other and knew that’s what they were going to do.

“If I wasn’t able to bring my baby home, at least others could bring theirs home.”

Rylei took her last breath New Year’s Eve night, one week after she entered the world. She beat her own odds of survival. . .

Gonzales say Erlanger says only sees babies with this condition about once a year. No baby survives it. (Read more from “She’s a Hero”: Cleveland Baby Defies Odds, Saves Two Children” HERE)

Man Charged With Killing Pregnant Woman Won’t Be Charged With Abortion Due to New York’s New Law

New York’s new law allowing late-term abortion has resulted in the dropping of abortion charges against a man arrested for murdering his pregnant girlfriend.

Jennifer Irigoyen was a 35-year-old real estate broker, a classical pianist, a professional Latin ballroom dancer, a certified Spinning instructor, and a licensed Zumba instructor. She was the mother of a 12-year-old boy from a previous relationship and five months pregnant at the time of her death.

This amazing woman’s life — and the life of her unborn child — was cut short after they were both stabbed to death in her Queens apartment building, according to Gothamist. Surveillance video from the apartment building showed Irigoyen being murdered, according to the superintendent, who told the New York Post that the woman screamed, “He’s got a knife! He’s going to kill the baby!”

Irigoyen’s boyfriend, 48-year-old Anthony Hobson, turned himself in to the 104th Precinct in Ridgewood, New York, and was arrested for the murder. He was initially charged “with murder, tampering with physical evidence, abortion, and criminal possession of a weapon,” according to Gothamist, but the “abortion” charge was later dropped.

The Post reports that the abortion charge was dropped because of a new state law that allows abortion up to the minute of birth. Even though Irigoyen wanted her baby, it was not considered a life under the new law. A spokesperson for the District Attorney told the Post the abortion charge “was repealed by the Legislature, and this is the law as it exists today.” (Read more from “Man Charged With Killing Pregnant Woman Won’t Be Charged With Abortion Due to New York’s New Law” HERE)

Former Abortion Doctor Counters Progressive Narrative: ‘You Never Need Late-Term Abortion to Save a Woman’s Life’

. . .

However, these results are misleading. Gallup’s question implies that there are certain circumstances during the third trimester of pregnancy in which an abortion could save a woman’s life. Such a question suggests that termination is sometimes the only solution to certain late-term medical scenarios. . .

During an interview with Live Action founder Lila Rose, former abortion doctor Anthony Levatino stated that late-term abortions are never medically necessary:

We hear all the time how abortion, including especially late-term abortion, is necessary to save women’s lives. Nothing could be further from the truth. I spent nine years working at a tertiary medical center. There are only certain hospitals in the country that are designated to take care of the really, really high-risk pregnancies …

Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York, where I worked, was one of them. I was faculty at the hospital for nine years, and I saw hundreds of cases of really severe pregnancy complications – cancers, heart disease, intractable diabetes … toxemia pregnancy, out of control. In those nine years, I saved hundreds of women from life-threatening pregnancies, and I did that by delivering them, by ending their pregnancy by delivery – either induction of labor or cesarean section…

I always tell people, in all of those years, the number of babies that I had to, that I was obligated to deliberately kill in the process was zero, none.

Rep. Omar Leaves out Some Key Details When Complaining About the Pay Gap at McDonald’s

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) cited a claim about the pay gap between the CEO of McDonald’s, Steve Easterbrook, and the company’s median employee Thursday but left out some key details.

At a hearing calling for increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour, Rep. Omar questioned Missouri McDonald’s shift manager Terrence Wise who shared that he made $11 an hour with the company.

“So the median pay for a McDonald’s worker was $7,000 in 2017,” Rep. Omar said, “and that is the pay gap between the CEO that’s making $21.8 [million] to the $7,000 that a worker who has put in 40 hours a day[sic] gets paid. To me, that just morally does not sit well.” . . .

However, the part that Omar failed to mention is that “McDonald’s defines a median employee as a part-time hourly restaurant crew member in Poland, where wages are lower than in the U.S. and it didn’t use any of the exclusions allowed.” (Read more from “Rep. Omar Leaves out Some Key Details When Complaining About the Pay Gap at McDonald’s” HERE)

Implants Increasingly Linked to Lymphoma in Women – 9 Reported Deaths

On Wednesday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Dr. Binita Ashar released a statement on the danger of women getting cancer after having breast implants. As CNN reported, “At least 457 women in the United States have so far been diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma. … Of those, nine have died as a result of the rare cancer, which affects cells in the immune system and can be found around the breast implant.” Anaplastic large cell lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has written: “BIA-ALCL usually develops as a delayed swelling of the breast (Average 8 years, range 2 to 28 years) after the insertion of textured breast implants, which may present as fluid collecting around the implant or marked breast asymmetry. It can also present as a lump in the breast or armpit.”

The FDA statement said, “We recognize the limitations of medical device reports, which is why we review other sources of information, including medical literature and the Patient Registry and Outcomes for Breast Implants and Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma Etiology and Epidemiology. PROFILE collects real world data regarding patients who have a confirmed diagnosis of BIA-ALCL. Our participation in this registry reflects the FDA’s commitment to implementing our Medical Device Safety Action Plan, in which we are streamlining and modernizing how we implement postmarket actions to address device safety issues to make our responses to risks more timely and effective.” (Read more from “Implants Increasingly Linked to Lymphoma in Women – 9 Reported Deaths” HERE)

YES, SHE ACTUALLY SAID IT: Abortion Champion Pelosi Worried About ‘Generations to Come’

On Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, championing the Democratic Party’s efforts to address climate change, tweeted a message which was staggering in its hypocrisy, blathering, “We have a moral responsibility to protect God’s creation for generations to come. That is why today, we named members to the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. #ActOnClimate.”

So Pelosi feels that “we have a moral responsibility to protect God’s creation for generations to come?” Just which generations is she talking about? Surely it can’t be the generations yet to come who will be snuffed out by her own party’s embrace of aborting them. What is Pelosi’s position an abortion?

. . .

November 13, 2015:

For over forty years, the Supreme Court has consistently ruled that a woman’s health decisions must be her own, in consultation with her family, her physician, and her faith. I am pleased the Supreme Court will be hearing the challenge to Texas politicians’ appalling attempt to deny women their constitutional right to make their own reproductive health decisions.

INSANITY: 27-Year-Old Man Plans to Sue His Parents for Having Him Without His Consent

A 27-year-old Indian man plans to sue his parents — with whom he admits to having a good relationship — because they brought him into the world without his consent. . .

Raphael Samuel of New Delhi said that children aren’t indebted to their parents and that children should ask their mothers and fathers “for an explanation as to why they gave birth to you.”

“I want to tell all Indian kids that they don’t owe their parents anything,” Samuel told India’s The Print. “I love my parents, and we have a great relationship, but they had me for their joy and their pleasure.” . . .

Samuel’s belief is part of a system called “anti-natalism,” which promotes the notion that children shouldn’t be forced to be born, especially at the expense of the planet. . .

The outlet reported that Samuel runs a Facebook page called “Nihilanand,” which boasts a whopping 800 followers. You can find various memes and videos advocating for allowing the human race to die.

Fairfax Said His Accuser Should Be Respected — but He Said Something Far Worse in Private

By The Blaze. In the most recent outlandish development in Democratic politics from the state of Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax reportedly lashed out at his sexual assault accuser with a profane insult, before publicly asking she be respected.

A report said that Fairfax responded by exclaiming, “f**k that b**ch!” which many saw as falling far short of the new standards set by the “Me Too” movement against sexual harassment.

Fairfax reportedly made the comments on Monday at a private meeting, but they leaked out to reporters by Wednesday.

Dr. Vanessa Tyson accused Fairfax of forcing her to perform oral sex on him at the Democratic National Convention. She released a very detailed and disturbing statement about her accusations.

Virginia Lt. Gov. Fairfax Reportedly Made Some Profane Comments About His Accuser Amid Sexual Assault Allegations

By Townhall. . .Tyson, a professor at Scripps College, alleged that Fairfax had physically forced her to perform oral sex in 2004 at the Democratic National Convention.

Fairfax strongly denied the allegation in a statement Wednesday, saying that the encounter was “consensual.”

“I would like to encourage the media, my supporters, and others to treat both the woman who made this allegation and my family with respect for how painful this situation can be for everyone involved,” he wrote. “I wish her no harm or humiliation, nor do I seek to denigrate her or diminish her voice. But I cannot agree with a description of events that I know is not true.”

Virginia Democrats have been scandal-ridden this past week. Gov. Ralph Northam’s shocking medical school yearbook photo of someone in blackface and another person in a KKK hood surfaced and, in a press conference Saturday, he admitted to wearing blackface for a dance competition.

Fairfax implied that Gov. Northam was behind his sexual assault allegations coming out shortly after the yearbook photo. (Read more from “Virginia Lt. Gov. Fairfax Reportedly Made Some Profane Comments About His Accuser Amid Sexual Assault Allegations” HERE)

Nancy Pelosi Reveals Her Repulsive View on Late-Term Abortion

By The Daily Caller. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded Wednesday to President Donald Trump’s call for legislation to ban late-term abortion by saying it’s a “sad thing.”

“It’s really quite a sad thing when you know that we’ll be talking about something that applies to the health and life — health and ability to have other children of women,” she said when asked by The Daily Caller. “I hope that in his family, he never has to face that crisis and apply his attitude toward it.”

During his State of the Union speech, President Trump expressed to lawmakers, “To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.” (Read more from “Nancy Pelosi Reveals Her Repulsive View on Late-Term Abortion” HERE)

On Abortion, Trump Agenda Likely Leads to Supreme Court, Not Congress

By Reuters. President Donald Trump urged lawmakers in his State of the Union address to put new limits on abortion, but partisan division in the U.S. Congress means the Supreme Court likely will set the agenda on the divisive issue, as it has for decades.

Bolstered by Trump’s appointment of two conservative justices, the nine-member court could soon begin to pare back abortion rights, starting with a major case from Louisiana that is one of several similar pending appeals.

The addition of Trump appointees Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch could alter the conservative-majority court’s approach to abortion. Kavanaugh replaced Justice Anthony Kennedy, a conservative who backed abortion rights in key rulings in 1992 and 2016.
