Europe’s childless leaders
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/10/2017 4:32:15 AM

James McPherson, writing in the Washington Examiner, makes a remarkable observation: the leaders of Europe have no children. France’s Emmanuel Macron has none. Same with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime minister Theresa May, Italian prime minister Paolo Gentilon, Holland’s Mark Rutte, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon, and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission. Sweden’s prime minister Stefan Lofven has no biological children. The prime minister of Luxembourg is also childless. I mention him not to cherry pick, but because it means that of the six founding members of what evolved into the European Union, five are now led by childless prime

FTA "James McPherson, writing in the Washington Examiner, makes a remarkable observation: the leaders of Europe have no children."

Mark Steyn made this point on May 8th ( https://www.steynonline.com/7788/leading-by-example ) before concluding "As I wrote over a decade ago now, Europe is barren - and its leadership class reflects that. The key line from America Alone is: ´The future belongs to those who show up.´"

Childless? Of course. Libtards have their new religion called baby murder. After all, their own citizens can be replaced by their beloved muzzies.

I wouldn´t have known to ask the question (sorry I missed Mark Steyn´s take on it) but I read Psalm 127:3-5 just to be sure.

Bottom line is, they have no stake in the future. Horrifying!
No wonder our President causes them such heartburn: Don, Jr., Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany and Barron.

Europeans fell under the spell of the population bomb myth and quit reproducing. That´s why they´re so dependent on migrants. They need the bodies not only to fill jobs but also to pay in to the taxes to support their welfare states. Another example of looking to Europe for what not to do.

My brother Thait I deeply love has children, but his grown children have no children.
Once he and his children die his branch will die.
Over the past 10 to 15 years, he has become a left wing liberal.
He only cares about today as he has no legacy.
My other siblings and I have a number of children.
We have all become upper middle class and are conservative.

Only one of our children has children, the others--for medical reasons--do not and have not been able to adopt. I am the oldest of 7. It is a sad thing to grow old without children or grandchildren. They are a joy; especially grandchildren.

As someone humorously wrote, "Grandchildren are a reward for having put up with and raise your children." ;-)

Cage Match: New York Times vs. Fox News

The Associated Press reports on an epic conflict from the world of journalism: “No apology from Fox in its battle with The New York Times.” The AP sees the conflict from the Times’s point of view: Fox News Channel on Monday clarified, but didn’t apologize for, a weekend segment that The New York Times said falsely accused the newspaper of revealing intelligence information that enabled Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to elude capture by U.S. forces two years ago. Times spokeswoman Danielle Rhoades Ha said Fox was guilty of “sheer hypocrisy” because the network had also reported about a U.S. raid

The Company Behind Many
Surprise Emergency Room Bills
New York Times, by Julie Creswell*    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/25/2017 5:07:48     Post Reply
Early last year, executives at a small hospital an hour north of Spokane, Wash., started using a company called EmCare to staff and run their emergency room. The hospital had been struggling to find doctors to work in its E.R., and turning to EmCare was something hundreds of other hospitals across the country had done. That’s when the trouble began. Before EmCare, about 6 percent of patient visits in the hospital’s emergency room were billed for the most complex, expensive level of care. After EmCare arrived, nearly 28 percent got the highest-level billing code. On top of that, the hospital,

Giuliani Defends Sessions,
Denies He’s Gunning For AG
Daily Caller, by Amber Athey    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/25/2017 4:59:40     Post Reply
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani denied reports Monday that President Donald Trump is tapping him to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general. Speaking to CNN after landing at Ronald Reagan National Airport on Monday afternoon, Giuliani said there is no truth to the reports. He also defended Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. Sessions “made the right decision under the rules of the Justice Department,” Giuliani asserted. The reports about Giuliani replacing Sessions came out after Trump criticized the attorney general for recusing himself from the Russia probe, asserting that he would have never hired Sessions if

The Islamophobia Industry Killed Justine Damond

Islamophobia kills. We just saw this again in Minneapolis, when a 40-year-old Australian woman, Justine Ruszczyk Damond, was killed by a rogue cop. It is a cherished fiction on the Left that there exists an “Islamophobia Industry,” a well-funded group of propagandists who spread hatred of Muslims solely to line their pockets. This is as ridiculous as it is libelous, but there really is an Islamophobia Industry, and it is a group of well-funded propagandists. (Snip)And so it was very important to the Minneapolis Police Department, and to city officials, that Mohamed Noor succeed. He graduated from a fast-track program

CBS News joins O.J. Simpson
on the hunt for the real killers
Hot Air, by John Sexton    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/25/2017 4:50:46     Post Reply
In the wake of O.J. Simpson’s parole last week, CBS News has a story today titled “Who killed Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman?” Curiously, the story doesn’t attempt to answer that question. Instead, the entire premise of the story is that the investigation into the murders is officially still open in Los Angeles: CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan reports the case is still an open investigation for the Los Angeles Police Department. A reported 13.5 million people tuned into Simpson’s parole hearing last week. That’s far fewer than the estimated 150 million people who watched his 1995 acquittal. Still,

The horrific incident involving dozens of immigrants allegedly smuggled into the U.S. in a sweltering tractor-trailer is proof that illegal immigration is “not a victimless crime,” the acting head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told Fox News on Monday. “It´s a message I´ve been trying to get out as long as I´ve been the acting ICE director,” Thomas Homan said on "Your World with Neil Cavuto." Federal authorities have since charged the alleged driver of the tractor-trailer, James Mathew Bradley Jr., 60, of Clearwater, Fla., with transporting immigrants in the U.S. illegally. Investigators found the packed truck at a Walmart

   

 

  


 
Mike Pence´s Opportunity

Donald Trump and those around him have made a long series of mistakes stemming from his campaign´s contacts with Russians and subsequent inquiries into the matter, which raise the real possibility of his impeachment. But none of those compares to his biggest blunder: choosing Mike Pence as his running mate. Pence is in a delicate position, which may be why he is seldom seen or heard from these days. On the one hand, his job as vice president obligates him to be a loyal member of the administration. On the other, he needs to maintain good relations with congressional Republicans, many

The Democrats´ performance as

Six months into Donald Trump’s term, and Democratic politician’s ability to be an opposition party is, in a word, pathetic. When the poll came out saying that “Democrats stand for nothing more than opposing” Trump, I thought to myself, ‘If only that were true!’” But they can’t even do that well. When House Democratic Caucus chairman Joe Crowley was asked by the Associated Press just what his party’s core message was, he “hesitated” and then said, “That message is being worked on.” It was as tone deaf (but honest) an answer as when Mother Jones writer Kevin Drum – as

The charges started racking up the moment Annette Johnson arrived at Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound to her left forearm. Doctors sliced open Johnson´s arm and installed a $500 metal plate to shore up her shattered ulna, securing it with numerous bone screws that cost $246 apiece. There were morphine drips to quell pain, tetanus shots to prevent infection, blood screens and anesthesia. Two years earlier in a different part of the city, Leo Leyva arrived at a North Side hospital with a gunshot wound to his back. His last memory before going under anesthesia was a nurse telling him

Exposing the New York Times’
hypocrisy on Jeff Sessions
New York Post, by Michael Goodwin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/23/2017 4:44:09     Post Reply
Last year, after President-elect Trump picked Jeff Sessions to be attorney general, The New York Times editorial page called the Alabama senator “radical” and “extreme” and tarred him as an unrepentant racist and xenophobe. Last week, after Trump criticized Sessions and others, the same editorial page suddenly discovered a new fondness for Sessions. The Times now insisted that Trump had impugned his “integrity” and that of others “who have spent their careers respecting and protecting” the law. It’s not likely that Sessions is grateful for the embrace. He knows he’s just a pawn — dirt when Trump embraces him, and a saint

The news that President Trump’s legal team is already evaluating the scope of his pardon authority, as well as steps that can be taken to push back on the breadth of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, rippled across social media Thursday night. Of particular interest was that Mueller’s potential inquiry into the president’s financial dealings (and his tax returns) has apparently so incensed President Trump and resulted in a warning that the former FBI director should not cross that proverbial “red line.” President Trump, of course, has a long history of being a more-than-capable litigant in his pre-presidential life, and

   

 



 
Trump has already made America $4

Fox News, by Stuart Varney    Original Article

It’s Thursday, July 20th. As of today, Donald Trump has been president for 6 months. The media coverage of the president is overwhelmingly negative: the press remains contemptuous, and they´re pushing to get him out before he completes his first term. Investors might think differently. The great success of the Trump presidency thus far, is not what he´s done, but what he promises to do, namely, get the economy going again. Evidently, investors believe he might yet get it done. Look at this: since his election win, the Trump rally has added $4.1 trillion to the nation´s wealth. Anyone with a

On their list are a growing roster of black politicians, notably Sens.

Carter’s comments come in the midst of ongoing GOP efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare with more conservative legislation. The GOP has struggled to secure enough votes to pass the repeal and replace legislation as conservatives and moderates alike have found fault with
