Apparently falsifying military records is the new political infidelity. News broke today that Rep. Mark Kirk, who is running for President Obama’s former Senate seat in Illinois, claimed in his official bio that he had received the U.S. Navy’s Intelligence Officer of the Year award for his service during NATO’s conflict with Serbia in the late 1990s. He "misspoke". This man needs to be taken out of the race. If we can't trust his words then we have nothing. We must not be like the Democrats when it comes to our politicians lie,cheat or steal. They just write it off when their party does it. But we must hold our reps to a higher standard. We must hold all politicians to a higher standard. If they lie they must go. We must be able to trust our political representatives. And here is the new version of “I misspoke”:
The socialist supremacists in this video is more proof that racism runs strong with the left wing. Listen as these white supremacists say that they are left wing socialists. Is it no surprise that they would show up to voice their opinions at this event? What is suprising is that the left wing are trying to say that they are from the right. How funny is that?
Lost in the politics and rhetoric is the surprising, seldom-reported evidence that MOST, not some, abortions are unwanted or coerced. Many are deceptively informed or even forced. Coercion can escalate to violence. The threats are real. Homicide is the #1 killer of pregnant women.
Coercion can involve professional negligence, deceptive
counseling or false information presented by licensed professionals or trusted authorities as fact. It may involve job or housing discrimination, such as the threat of being fired or evicted for refusing to abort.
One mother was turned away from a homeless shelter unless she would have an abortion. In other cases, it is an abuser who seeks abortion to cover up his crimes or parents who force their daughters to abort. Published research exposes the synergy of coercion that is, for many, just the tip of the iceberg:
