"Shameful"…(Really, Mr. President??? Who are YOU to spit derogatives?)

I received this in my email from the White House (I get them because I wrote a petition to end abortion. I am now on their email list). The title of the email is “Shameful” (seriously!!!). Here’s what President Obama had to say about the denial of passage of the legislation for gun control. READ CAREFULLY and apply to our fight to end abortion:

And a few minutes ago, a minority in the United States Senate decided it wasn’t worth it. They blocked common-sense gun reforms even while these families looked on from the Senate gallery.

By now, it’s well known that 90 percent of the American people support universal background checks that make it harder for a dangerous person to buy a gun. We’re talking about convicted felons, people convicted of domestic violence, people with a severe mental illness. Ninety percent of Americans support that idea. Most Americans think that’s already the law…But if action by Congress could have saved one person, one child, a few hundred, a few thousand… Do we really think that thousands of families whose lives have been shattered by gun violence don’t have a right to weigh in on this issue? Do we think their emotions, their loss is not relevant to this debate?…The point is those who care deeply about preventing more and more gun violence will have to be as passionate, and as organized, and as vocal as those who blocked these common-sense steps to help keep our kids safe. Ultimately, you outnumber those who argued the other way. But they’re better organized. They’re better financed. They’ve been at it longer. And they make sure to stay focused on this one issue during election time. And that’s the reason why you can have something that 90 percent of Americans support and you can’t get it through the Senate or the House of Representatives…I believe we’re going to be able to get this done. Sooner or later, we are going to get this right. The memories of these children demand it. And so do the American people.

BUT WAIT FOR IT…Here’s the best part:

“So to change Washington, you, the American people, are going to have to sustain some passion about this. And when necessary, you’ve got to send the right people to Washington. And that requires strength, and it requires persistence.”

OKAY. Here I go:
1. If we look at the recent tragedies, many of these weapons were either purchased legally (as in WITH a background check) or not owned by the shooter (Adam Lanza’s mom legally purchased and registered the guns used in the Newton shooting). So how in the world is this legislation going to stop a lunatic? Jared Lee Loughner, the gunman who shot Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, passed an FBI background check. Shouldn’t we fix this loophole before we pass new laws? Why did a raging lunatic like Lochner pass an FBI background check? If a crazy wants a gun, a crazy will get a gun and use it. No law will stop him/her. What a waste of time…
2. “Most Americans think that is already the law…” This is also true for late term abortionsHere is what our current president has to say on this: 
  Most Americans believe that you can only have an abortion up to 14 weeks. In America, it is legal to have an abortion up until the day of delivery thanks to Doe vs. Bolton, the same 7-2 majority (Justices White and Rehnquist dissenting) that struck down a Texas abortion law in Roe v. Wade, invalidated most of the remaining restrictions of the Georgia abortion law, including the medical approval and residency requirements. Together, Doe and Roe declared abortion as a constitutional right and by implication overturned most laws against abortion in other US states.
3. If the concern of this White House is to save one child, one person, one hundred, one thousand they are fighting the wrong battle. In the minutes that it took him to deliver this message, approximately 47 babies died (one every 23 seconds in America). More children die in one day to abortion (over 3500) than in one year (3000) to gun violence. FOCUS…
4. From his mouth: the point is we must be passionatemore organized, and VOCAL. Stay focused on this one issue at election time and we can see changes. Sooner or later we will get this right. The memories of THESE children demand it as well. (I’ll take those words, sir.  Preesh-e-ate ya!)

So, tonight, I thank you Mr. President for clearing it up. We receive what you said and we will take it and use it. To run a defensive play, you must look at your opponent‘s strategy and counter it. You, sir, have just given a strategy to an army of soldiers who are relentless in their pursuit of justice for the least of these.

 Vengeance is the Lord’s and He has drafted an Army.

What’s Eugenics have to do with IT?

eugenics  [(yooh- jen -iks)]
The idea that one can improve the human race by careful selection of those who mate and produce offspring.
Or literally “well born” 

  • Frances Galton: founder of eugenics; coined the term eugenics in 1883. He is the cousin of Charles Darwin who wrote the famous book “The Origin of Species”, to which the original title was “The Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life”.  Galton’s belief that it was possible to produce a “highly gifted race of men” through selective breeding. 
  • Dr. Charles Davenport: founded the Eugenics Record Office which advocated laws that led to the forced sterilization of many Americans it categorized as ‘socially inadequate’.
  • Harry Laughlin: Director of the Eugenics Record Office; on the Committee on Sterilization and the Committee on the Heredity of the Feebleminded (YES…it’s true!) Laughlin himself eventually discovered that he suffered from epilepsy which was one of the subjects of study at the ERO and one of the criteria for compulsory sterilization under his own law.
  • The Eugenics Record Office was funded by the Rockefellers and the Carnegies (YES…THE Rockefellers and THE Carnegies as in Carnegie Hall and Rockefeller Center)
  •  Madison Grant: A eugenist, wrote “Passing of the Great Race” which was lauded by Adolf Hitler, so much so that he wrote a fan letter to Grant in which he called the book “his bible”. 
  • T. Lothrop Stoddard: Stoddard was appointed to the Board of Directors of the American Birth Control League, which later became Planned Parenthood, by Margaret Sanger.
  • Margaret Sanger: founder of the American Birth Control League, which later became Planned Parenthood.  Publisher of “The Birth Control Review”, a known eugenist. 
  •  Eugen Fischer: Known eugenist; conducted the “Bastard Studies” which was a study of Germans fathers and African women in Rehoboth, which is present day Namibia. Led to prohibition of mixed race marriage in Germany. 

Each of these people listed above are peers.  They all contributed to the eugenics movement and many of them wrote for the Birth Control Review, Margaret Sanger’s publication. If we look back into Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry, we find that the motive for legalization of abortion was eugenics, not choice.  Surely there was no choice in the matter in the beginning.  Before legalization of abortion, women and young girls who found themselves pregnant and unwed, or raped and pregnant were forced to be sterilized, many even unaware that it was done.  Abortion has taken the place of this forced sterilization. It has become the candy that the abductor uses to taunt and lure his victim. 

Let’s look at the story of Elaine Riddick, who at the age of 13, was sterilized in North Carolina so that she could not “breed” any more “feebleminded” individuals. 

It is estimated that over 200,000 women were sterilized before this practice was abolished in 1981.  A disproportionate number of these women were black. 

 “It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind…Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”
Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., in Buck v. Bell, 1927

Three Generations of Imbeciles

In 1924, a teenager in Charlottesville, Virginia, Carrie Buck, was chosen as the first person to be sterilized under the state’s newly adopted eugenics law. Ms. Buck, whose mother resided in an asylum for the epileptic and feebleminded, was accused of having a child out of wedlock. She was diagnosed as promiscuous and the probable parent of “socially inadequate offspring.”

A lawsuit challenging the sterilization was filed on Ms. Buck’s behalf. Harry Laughlin, having never met Ms. Buck, wrote a deposition condemning her and her 7-month old child, Vivian. Scientists from the ERO attended the trial to testify to Vivian’s “backwardness.” In the end, the judge ruled in the state’s favor.

On appeal, the U.S. Supreme Court in the landmark case Buck v. Bell (1927), ruled 8-1 to uphold the sterilization of Ms. Buck on the grounds she was a “deficient” mother. Chief Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., an adherent of eugenics, declared “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

According to University of Virginia historian Paul Lombardo, evidence was later revealed that supports the claim that Carrie Buck’s child was not the result of promiscuity; Ms. Buck had been raped by the nephew of her foster parents. School records also indicate her daughter Vivian was a solid student and had made the honor roll at age 7. A year later, Vivian died of an intestinal illness.
 Have you heard enough? One more thing…

Planned Parenthood was a referral for the Eugenics Board for Sterilization.

[Why is it that this reminds me of a theology that has so many confused as well???]
