NJRTL

Thanks to your efforts and a team of dedicated Pro-Life Groups Working Together, the radical NJ Freedom to Kill bill has failed to get a committee hearing thus far.  Although the NJ media has largely ignored our advocacy efforts or provided extremely biased, unfair and lopsided coverage to our side, it is clear that legislators have been hearing our message.  However, as indicated in the article , Planned Parenthood and their co-horts are going to make a push to try to pass this in the lame duck session.  Read the article

Please make every effort to communicate your opposition to S3030/A4848 in the months ahead to your legislators, and especially between November and the second week in January, which is the lame duck session.  Please pass this on to 10 friends and family members and provide details about the radical  nature of this bill and  then ask them to pass this on to 10 more people and so on.  Please use social media and any other means at your disposal to educate people about this extreme draconian bill.

Tom Wolf Stripped of Emergency Powers By State Voters

If voters from the Keystone State were at the polls during the primary, they may have noticed the first question on whether the governor should have limited executive power. It was common sense. Now one was above the law.

By a 7-point margin (53%-46%), voters said yes to limiting the governor’s power. This came during the advent of the pandemic that took place last year. He closed churches [which should have been opened to encourage people to pray for the end of COVID-19] and businesses, yet he let abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood continue having abortions.

Despites the state’s efforts to pass bills ending the pandemic, Wolf vetoed every measure. That send the message for the people to decide at the polls and the convincing victory showed.

This shows that accountable is still alive in Pennsylvania as 2022 is around the corner.

Pennsylvania is just the first state to do so. Many others are looking to follow suit.

It’s time for We the People to stand up to tyrants like Commie Tommy Wolf and take our states back. Wolf’s legacy lied in his response to the scamdemic that happened and how he radically promoted abortion in the heat of the lockdowns where pro-lifers were not permitted to be peacefully demonstrating outside of abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood.

We Get the Behavior We are Willing to Tolerate

“We get the behavior we are willing to tolerate”. 

Apply this axiom to what we are willing to tolerate from our government representatives, from our local committee office all the way up to the President of the United States.

What behavior are we willing to tolerate?

This past Friday the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania held a public forum outside of Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick’s local office in Newtown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania to voice our concerns with his support of the Equality Act. A Republican, Fitzpatrick in 2019 said he would not vote for that version of the Equality Act without a religious exemption; however, two years later he voted for the 2021 version of the Equality Act which specifically notes there is no exemption for religious concerns. 

Here is some of the fine print of this act as currently written and waiting on a Senate vote.

*This legislation authorizes individuals and or government officials to punish Catholic hospitals and/or health care professionals who decline to commit abortions or gender transition surgeries.  It allows no provision for conscience rights, as any reference to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act is expressly disallowed.

*Taxpayer funding of elective abortions would now be a result of the “equality” act.

*Minors who wish to pursue gender transitioning surgery/hormonal change would not require parental consent

*Anyone who identifies as opposite to their biological sex would need only to state this fact to join same sex schools and teams.  Also, no questions asked to enter private facilities such as restrooms, locker rooms, or women’s shelters.  In other words, a biological male who perceives himself as a woman can now attend a girls-only school and proceed to play on the same athletic field, regardless if any hormonal therapy has taken place or not. This could have a profound effect on women’s sports and sport scholarships.  Also, a biological male can enter a women’s shelter if he so states he identifies as a woman.  The Equality Act contains no acknowledgement that males and females are biologically different.  What happened to “follow the science” as we have been admonished to do for global warming or Covid concerns?

 I have no idea how they plan to protect a woman in a shelter if a straight male enters, clearly planning to exploit the Equality Act for his own purposes, which could include assault, rape or murder. Apparently Fitzpatrick didn’t see the need to consider or protect these women’s rights.

Now is the time to hold our representatives’ feet to the fire.  One of the positive results of Friday’s rally is there was a genuine sharing of information how to get involved in local politics in order to have your voice heard.  Search for local Facebook pages for your local township, call your state representative to obtain information of local party committees, ask neighbors and friends if they have any contacts.

Politics is like commerce.  We buy a particular product because we like what it does and we pay for it with our vote.  Once we notice a degradation in the quality of the product, we can opt to take our business elsewhere.  We should never put the failed product back in our pantry or closet and simply say, oh well, nothing I can do about that.  There is always something you can do and silently tolerating poor performance or behavior should not be our default.

My First CPAC Experience

Last week, I attended CPAC for the first time. This year it was held in Orlando due to the restrictions from its preceding location in Baltimore.

The event gathers thousands of like-minded conservatives from all across the United States and even parts of the world. Those in attendance got to hear from elected officials and even personalities in conservative media.

Below is my review of the event.

Hits

The even proves that big gatherings can be held as we navigate past COVID. Florida has been open for business and it was an outstanding choice on their part to allow tourism and event large events happening. Yes, Karen, people were wearing masks when walking around.

Many topics were covered during the event, especially our bill of rights. Many elected officials have taken time to talk about what is plaguing our country.

The ecumenical committee is growing at CPAC, particularly among Jewish, Catholics, and Protestants. Even Fr. Frank Pavone was present to celebrate mass for Catholic attendees.

A great red carpet of the upcoming Roe v Wade movie.

Misses

The only miss that is worth nothing is the results of a straw poll conducted by The Washington Times. The poll was to gauge attendees on the top three issues pressing them. Surprisingly, the recent election and its integrity was Number one with almost 70% of the votes. The issue that came in last was pro-life. How disappointing.

Overall, I do recommend attending. Pro-Lifers should not pass on a chance to connect with other pro-lifers and hopefully we can make this a more pressing issue.

The Anti-Life Agenda of Xavier Becerra

Pro-Lifers and every American should be more concerned as the Biden Administration continue to to add another so called “Catholic” to a scandalous cabinet. The agenda is simple; death.

His nominee to fill the HHS Department favored euthanasia in San Francisco. In addition to euthanasia, Becerra is also in favor of coercive action towards religious groups.

Becerra even went after David Daleiden when he took over for Vice President Kamala Harris. The crime? Exposing his ally, Planned Parenthood.

This move from the Biden Administrations shows that he is out of touch, not a Catholic, and has nothing real in store for our country.

Two Brothers Announce Run for 2022 Public Offices

Two brothers in Southeastern Pennsylvania are looking to make a difference in the 2022 election in the Keystone State. Both are doing extraordinary work in the state respectively.

Joe Gale

Joe Gale, 33 currently holds a public office in Montgomery County, challenging the liberal rhetoric day in and day out. Joe overcame some smear campaigns from the GOP Swamp that has attacked his character all because he doesn’t fit the establishment agenda. Joe announced on Monday that he will run for the office of governor for Pennsylvania.

Sean Gale

Sean Gale, the brother of Joe, announced on Monday that he will run for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania. He makes this announcement after learning of the retirement of Pat Toomey. Sean, 30, could potentially become the youngest senator in Congress when it is all set and done.

Both brothers can make a difference. They are willing to stand against the establishment, put the people first, and defend life from womb to tomb. These are the candidates that we must support in every given election if we want results.

Brian Sims for Lieutenant Governor?

Remember Brian Sims? Yes, the man who livestreamed himself harassing pro-life women.

Well, a report has surfaced that he announced through Twitter that he is eyeing the office of Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania.

Let us never forget how Sims harassed women in 2019. He even doxxed teenage girls in front of their mother while praying in front of Planned Parenthood within his state district.

We must hold this so called “public servant” accountable for his incorrigible actions against pro-life women.

Loss of Life in DC: Aftermath of Wednesday’s Riots

We’re only days into the month of January of 2021, yet what happened through the Black Lives Matter protest has carried into the New Year. What started as an historic day to end the process of the Electoral College Process, two weeks prior to the inauguration, would soon turned into chaos.

Once again, our nation’s capital was at the center of national headlines. What started as a day for like-minded people to peacefully protest in favor of election integrity was turned into what many witnessed last summer. The event gained more coverage than the nationwide BLM protests across the nation.

Many senators and representatives have condemned the actions of those involve let alone President Trump asking everyone to be peaceful through a tweet, only to be deleted by big tech. Speculations are running amoss that ANTIFA infiltrated the peaceful rally, only to raid the capitol building. In time, many elected officials had to scramble for cover and do what they can to get away from the trespassers.

Sadly, the incident on Wednesday has cost the life of a police officer, Brian Sickwick. Ofc. Sickwick was severely injured when confronting the mom only to be pronounced dead at the hospital.

Another casualty from the event was Ashli Babbitt. Babbitt, a 14 year veteran of the Air Force, joined fellow patriots in sharing their concern over the integrity of the elections. Unfortunately, she was shot during an altercation when paid actor posing as Trump supporters were breaking into the capitol building.

What happened last summer and on January 6th had two things in common. The first is that human life was destroyed. Why? Many families had to or will stare at an empty seat during family gatherings with that thought sinking in their minds. The second is agitators wanted to get the media’s attention to help them jumped to their own doom and gloom conclusions. The violence that have happened this week and last are unacceptable, no matter who is at fault.

We need to do better. Violence is not going to protect and nurture life. Rather, it destroys it. We must do better to promote, peace, love, and mercy in our communities and it begins with us.

May Brian Sickwick and Ashli Babbitt rest in peace.

Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord. And let the perpetual light shine upon them

USCCB President Congratulates President-elect

In an appalling move by the President of the United States Conference of Catholic bishops, Archbishop Jose Gomez congratulated Joe Biden on becoming the 46th President of the United States. He goes on to say that it is great to have another Catholic in the White House.

How could the head of all of the bishops in the United States congratulate a man who has supported abortion through his nearly half a century of public service as senator and vice president.

Catholics should be very concerned as Archbishop Gomez has slapped faithful Catholics in their faces with his statement celebrating the slaughter of innocent unborn children.
