The debacle in the committee hearing room in Austin, Texas last week exposed the core of the problem with abortion. It all comes down to the humanity, and the God-given, unalienable, equal rights of the individual child, and whether or not the perpetrators who seek to slaughter them will be punished in the same way other murderers are dealt with under the law.
In other words, it all came down to the same things it came down to in front of the Supreme Court in 1973. Prior to Roe vs. Wade, Texas had unjust, immoral, unconstitutional laws on the books that deprived the unborn child of their equal rights, and punished their murderers differently, and much more leniently, than the murderers of those fortunate enough to have passed through a birth canal. Which, of course, provided the pretext the wicked Blackmun court needed to dehumanize, to depersonify, the unborn child. Which, of course, then led to the cold-blooded, premeditated murder of more then sixty million innocent, helpless, defenseless children.
And what was the response of Pro-Life, Inc., and their faithful minions in the Texas legislature when presented with a just, constitutional bill that would criminalize all abortions in their state? They were steadfast in their determination to make the exact same moral, constitutional, and legal error that led to Roe in the first place, even though more than 98% of the more than three hundred citizens who testified in front of their committee spent more than eight hours, late into the night, explaining to them in great depth, in exquisite detail, why doing this would be a gross violation of the most sacred obligations of their solemn oaths.
And the innocent blood continues to flow.

The fear of God is the missing ingredient in our politics today - on the part of the people themselves, and on the part of those they elect to public office who are required to take the oath.
Our system presupposes a just and perfect judgment on our words and actions in the hereafter, as the mainstay against abuses and usurpations in the civic here and now.
Without that healthy dread in our hearts and minds, and in the hearts and minds of our chosen representatives, the whole edifice of constitutional republicanism falls apart.
"Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths?"
-- George Washington
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding."
-- Proverbs 9:10
So, on January 7th of this year the Communist Party USA began touting what they called a "Green New Deal." One month later, on February 7th, freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released her "Green New Deal."
Now, you can try if you will to track the timeline of just exactly who was cribbing whose notes, but the simple fact is, the whole thing is thoroughly communistic in nature. Its obvious predicate is the notion that all things belong to the state.
If they want to tear down all the buildings, including those buildings you own, their assumption is that they have the right and authority to do so. If they want to kill all your cows, they can. If they want to ground all your airplanes, there is nothing to prevent them from doing so. If they want to force you to live in an undefended, unheated shack, shivering in the dark, and only give you a little rice to eat each day, they can.
Make no mistake: If these people are not stopped, and soon, that is exactly what they will do, too.
Sure, their ideas are stupid and off-the-wall. But communist ideas have always been stupid and off-the-wall. That didn't stop them from murdering and enslaving a large part of the population of the world in the last century though.
Don't simply laugh this stuff off, folks. It's deadly serious business.

In 1729, Jonathan Swift anonymously wrote an intensely satirical piece entitled "A Modest Proposal," in which he wryly proposed cannibalism for the public good. And those who were to be eaten were unwanted, poor children. Children who were "unwanted," not necessarily by their parents, but by the intelligentsia of his day.
So, let's jump forward almost three hundred years to our present time. And this is no satire. The bodies of aborted, i.e. murdered, children - children who are not only unwanted by the intelligentsia, but unwanted by their own flesh and blood, by their own parents - are being cannibalized, with their plundered cells being used to make vaccines.
To make matters even worse, the intelligentsia of our time not only insist on making these products of cannibalism AVAILABLE to the general public, they INSIST on making the injections MANDATORY.
We're now beyond the ghastly point of them saying that you MAY be a cannibal if you would like, to them saying that, to be a responsible citizen, you and your (unaborted) children MUST BE CANNIBALS.
My comments here have nothing to do with any argument over the morality of vaccinations themselves. It's not even about the dubious morality of governments forcing people to receive inoculations in general. This is about CANNIBALISM, and, I repeat, not just about cannibalism, but FORCED CANNIBALISM.
There can be little doubt that modern medicine has, in many respects, been a blessing to humanity. Mortality rates have fallen with the increase of our scientific knowledge about sanitation, human physiology, and health.
But, when science abandons decent moral considerations, nothing can be more of a curse for humanity. Nothing can be more of a plague. When doctors insist on going down the cursed path of a Mengele, the only thing that can follow, inevitably, is a curse on our nation.
These inhuman abominations must be stopped, once and for all, for the sake of our children, for the sake of our posterity.
"But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties."
-- Winston Churchill, Finest Hour speech, June 18, 1940

So, we're now on track to run trillion dollar deficits every year as far as the eye can see. We just hit $22 trillion in debt, which is up more than $2 trillion in additional debt since Trump took office only two years ago. We're spending a billion dollars a day on interest alone.
Under these circumstances, any "tax cuts" are illusory. The burden continues to radically rise, not lessen, on current taxpayers, and on our posterity, who haven't given their consent to any of this nonsense.
There's only one way out of this horrible mess, and that's to apply my three-fold criteria for any and all public spending.
1) Is it moral?
2 Is it constitutional?
3) Is it absolutely necessary?
If the answer to any of these questions is "NO," then it's high time we got rid of it.
Then what we have to do is to take the tax and regulatory burdens off of the producers in this country. We can start by completely dismantling the federal income tax, and replacing it with a simple, transparent, efficient retail consumption tax.
It's stupid and counter-productive to tax businesses and productivity. It's the equivalent of killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.
Put the tax burden on consumption, and you will encourage thrift and savings, which are the only things that can provide the seed for even more production of physical wealth and private property.
And last but not least, dismantle the massive regulatory state which is throttling our economy and disadvantaging us in the world market. Most of it is unconstitutional anyhow.
In the clean air of liberty, Americans can and will out-work, and out-think, and out-produce anyone in the world, no problem.
Restore our national moral basis. Restore respect for our Constitution. Restore liberty. The rest will take care of itself.
Today - January 27 - is designated as an annual day of Holocaust remembrance. It's the day in 1945 that Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated from the Nazis. There, for five years, as in so many other locations, they committed atrocities on an industrial scale.
Today, in America, a holocaust on an even vaster scale has continued for ten times as long as Auschwitz was operated. For fifty years, tens of millions of innocent, helpless, defenseless little boys and girls have gone to their deaths at the hands of the abortionists, and the pharmacists, and the medical profession, with the permission and the cooperation of their own mothers.
Make no mistake: Abortion is a crime against humanity, just as much as the extermination of Jews and others was a crime against humanity.
The only real difference is that today's fascist criminals are much more efficient, and have exterminated many more victims. And, worst of all, the ones delivering the innocents to their deaths are the ones who should have loved them more than anybody else.
The people of this country are being remorselessly, relentlessly, and very skillfully, propagandized against the securing of our sovereign territory from the millions of foreign nationals who are invading it.
They are being convinced to happily accept the demise of our right to govern ourselves in liberty, which will, of course, also strip our earthly posterity of the precious gift of the Blessings of Liberty.
And Trump being the poster boy for border security will likely be one of the worst things that has ever happened to the cause of preserving and defending our sovereignty, security, and borders.
My best guess is that he will ultimately accomplish nothing, and compromise away everything, because he lacks the basic understanding of, and commitment to, the principles that are necessary to actually secure this country.
He's making the job of those who want to destroy this country and its sovereignty and independence much, much easier.
"The worst thing that can happen to a good cause is, not to be skillfully attacked, but to be ineptly defended." -- Frédéric Bastiat
How our pro-life regulatory laws are helping Janey's baby right now in FL at 25 weeks gestation:
-- "Must be in a hospital." (Her abortionist doesn't care. He has hospital privileges just like any other Ob/Gyn. Janey's father, like most pro-aborts, would prefer to have it done in a safe, clean, professional location anyway. Oh, wait. Florida law just changed again and he can get back to late-term kills in his private office.)
-- "Must have a sono." (I've seen the sono. Janey's seen the sono. Her doctors have seen the sono. In fact, they all know it's a girl. The sono is what will give them the best info. to determine the most effective killing method and to guide the hands and tools of the abortionist.)
-- 24 week limit, unless for "health of the mother." (Easy-peasy. Get the mother to sign off that she'll have mental health problems after the birth or fudge the sono a bit. Exaggerate any medical history the mother has.)
-- "Must be performed by a licensed physician." (Does nothing. The abortionist is a licensed Ob/Gyn. Pro-aborts WANT a trained, licensed killer for their little ones.)
-- "Second physician must participate if baby is at viability." (Does nothing. Janey's daughter's potential abortionist has buddy-abortionists and they do not care about her viability.)
Let's say she was in a state that required:
-- Mandatory counseling about supposed "breast cancer risk." (That comes across to Janey -- a chain smoker -- like it comes across to you when you read on the Tylenol bottle that swallowing a pill for your migraine might cause liver damage.)
-- "Parental Involvement," if she was a minor. ("Parental involvement" is actually the problem here. Her father wants his grand daughter DEAD.)
-- "No dismemberment d&e while the baby's alive." (This is a real law that pro-lifers in Texas tried to pass. Easy work-around: stab the baby in the heart with poison, inducing a heart attack before dismembering.)
-- "No auctioning this baby girl's body parts." (Does nothing to help Janey's daughter from being butchered by two big bullies in the first place.)
-- "Must bury the baby." (Does nothing to prevent her potential dismemberment and murder today.)
-- "Defund Planned Parenthood/no taxpayer money for abortions." (Janey's father is flat-out volunteering to pay in full, and the abortionist is chipping in as well -- offering a steep discount to get his hands on Janey's child. If all else fails, the pro-aborts will just tap into their abortion charities to pay for it.)
Do you see how this game works?
It's similar to laws being passed to regulate rape!...
saying how, when, and where a rapist might commit his evil.
That's why you need to GET BEHIND Abolish Abortion Texas and similar initiatives in other states.
It is our Christian duty to love our tiniest of neighbors as ourselves by supporting efforts to pass laws that will restrain the sin of grandfathers and mothers like Janey and her father today.
A wonderful note I received today from a brother in Christ:
"Tom, I have been thinking a lot about what you have said about the "heart-beat bill" and incrementalism. I have come to realize I was wrong on the issue and you are right. Will you forgive me for standing in wickedness and arguing? I appreciate your ministry and your stance against evil. I am sorry that you took the brunt of wicked situational ethics that had taken root in my heart. Thank you for speaking the truth to me when I was standing in sin, that is true love you showed me when you do not know me nor did I deserve it thank you. Keep standing for righteousness, there are others like me who need to hear the truth in order to repent."
Nowhere in this incessant talk by Judge Kavanaugh about "precedent" is any mention of the actual results of the "precedent" in question, which is the violent dismemberment deaths of more than sixty million innocent, helpless, defenseless baby boys and girls. The Constitution says nothing about judicial precedent. But it does have something to say about JUSTICE. It says that the Constitution exists to establish it.
God is a God of justice. Our Constitution's stated purpose is to establish justice. Judges and Senators swear a solemn, sacred oath to God to establish justice. So, Americans should take great offense at the fact that neither supreme court nominees nor U.S. Senators can rouse themselves to speak even a word on behalf of justice for the millions of innocents that continue to be slaughtered by the abortionists and pharmacists.
"Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. ... The simple fact is that God ... intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder."
-- Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Ethics
There is no right to kill babies. The very idea that there ever could be is insane. The innocent child's supreme God-given right, the right to live, is paramount, and intrinsic. To deny this is to deny the very basis for your own rights. It's the worst sort of national suicidal nihilism.
All innocent persons, no matter their stage of life, or their state of dependency, or their physical capacities, are due equal protection under the law.
Brett Kavanaugh hearings, Day 3:
(Discussing Roe v. Wade)
Judge Kavanaugh: "When the Supreme Court issues a constitutional ruling ..."
Sen. Lindsey Graham: "... then you can only change that by a constitutional amendment?"
Kavanaugh: "That's the case."
In other words, Kavanaugh is a stone-cold judicial supremacist, one who worships at the idol of judicial precedent, and has absolutely no intention of "overturning Roe v. Wade." He's already told you straight out that he thinks that he can't.
Thomas Jefferson strongly disagreed with those who think like this judge:
“You seem ... to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. ... The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.” (Letter to William Jarvis, Sept. 28, 1820)
“Nothing in the Constitution has given them [the federal judges] a right to decide for the Executive, more than to the Executive to decide for them. ... The opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves, in their own sphere of action, but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.” (Letter to Abigail Adams, September 11, 1804)
Get the scales off your eyes. Anyone who thinks that a judicial precedent that has robbed tens of millions of innocents of their God-given, unalienable, equal right to live is binding on anybody has absolutely no real conception of the true basis of law and justice. They have no more business on the supreme court than an arsonist has running the fire department.
There is no real moral difference between a judge claiming he has to countenance the continued slaughter of tens of millions of innocent babies because some prior supreme court said so and the German Nazis who tried to justify their own atrocities by claiming that they had no choice but to obey the Fuehrer's orders. At Nuremberg, such pleadings fell of deaf ears. And it's high time we stopped listening to such wicked nonsense today.
To the judicial supremacist, five tyrants in black robes are the only thing standing between them and complete despotism. But under the constitutional system actually devised and ratified by our founders, there are courts, and executive department officers, and legislators, at all levels of governance, all sacredly sworn to support and defend our constitutions, regardless of what any other officer or branch may or may not do. In other words, there are checks and balances built in to assure that despotism can never take hold.
Bad judges are only a small part of the problem. The biggest problem of all lies with executives and legislators who place the illogical, unreasonable, immoral, unconstitutional opinions of bad judges over their own sworn obligations to support and defend our constitutions.
The Supreme Court is supreme only over the inferior courts. That's it. They are not supreme over the other branches of government. They are not supreme over the Constitution of the United States. They are not supreme over the laws of nature and nature's God. To put it simply, they are not above the law.
Most Americans are either ignorant of, have forgotten, or reject, the moral basis of the law, and self-government in liberty. Which is exactly why the country is in the mess it is in. And the chances of "making American great again," without that moral basis, are absolutely zero. Because that's the exact thing that made America great in the first place.
June 20, 2017
1. God made mankind in His own image and likeness.
2. God strictly, explicitly forbade the murdering of any individual so made in His image and likeness.
3. The great minds of western civilization, from Cicero, down through Aquinas, and Blackstone, and Hamilton, and Adams, and Jefferson, and many others, posited the protection of the individual right to life as the first part of the natural law, and the first and most important reason for the existence of human government.
4. The founders of the American republic, in our national charter, the first part of the organic laws of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, asserted as self-evident truth that all men are CREATED equal by God, and are, each and every one, therefore endowed with the unalienable right to life, from the first moment of their creation.
5. The framers of the United States Constitution asserted as the crowning purpose of that Constitution the securing of the Blessings of Liberty to POSTERITY, ie those who are not yet born or even conceived.
6. The framers of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution forbade the taking of the life of any person without a fair trial on a capital offense.
7. The framers of the Fourteenth Amendment explicitly, imperatively REQUIRED the equal protection of every innocent person, and explicitly REQUIRED each and every state in the Union to provide equal protection under the law for that supreme God-given individual right.
8. Article Six of the U.S. Constitution REQUIRES every officer of government in this country, in every branch, and at every level of governance, to swear an oath to God to support and defend the Constitution, including its crucial equal protection requirements.
I don't know how it could be any clearer:
Abortion is NOT legal in America.
Every person must be provided equal protection under the law.
We don't need more legislation.
We don't need more constitutional amendments.
We have no obligation to obey the immoral, unconstitutional opinions of tyrants in black robes.
All we need is for public officers, especially in the executive branch, to keep their sacred oaths and provide equal protection to the innocents.
In order for that to happen, THE PEOPLE MUST FIRST MAKE THE DEMAND.
NO MORE COMPROMISE.
