I have a question for liberals: if you think that euthanasia for medical patients is “painless,” then why do you say that lethal injections for convicted murderers is “painful”?
For as long as I can remember, liberals have supported legalization of euthanasia for consenting adult medical patients. As a libertarian, I agree with liberals on this issue.
Also for as long as I can remember, liberals have been opposed to the death penalty. As a libertarian, I also agree with liberals on this issue.
However, unlike liberals, I believe that euthanasia for medical patients and lethal injections for convicted murderers, have an equal amount of pain. Either both of these things are painful, or both of these things are painless. Since I have never experienced either one, I am not going to comment on whether these things are painful or painless.
Instead, I want to address the hypocrisy that liberals have on these two issues.
So here is my question for liberals: if you think that euthanasia for medical patients is “painless,” then why do you say that lethal injections for convicted murderers is “painful”?
In 2013, Chris Matthews Said Hitler Never Used Chemical Weapons
April 13, 2017
Sean Spicer has spent the past two days apologizing for saying that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons.
Unfortunately for MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, that led to people remembering he’d said said the exact same thing back in 2013.
In an August 27, 2013 appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Matthews seemed displeased with Obama’s “red-line” policy in Syria and offhandedly mentioned that Hitler “didn’t use chemical weapons.”
“We didn’t use [chemical weapons] in World War II, Hitler didn’t use them,” Matthews said at the time. “But we don’t use chemical weapons. That’s no deal.”
Matthews then pondered what could stop a country like Syria from using nuclear weapons if mutually assured destruction wasn’t enough of a deterrent.
“If that doesn’t work, what does work?” he questioned.
To Matthews’ credit, he defended Sean Spicer after his Tuesday gaffe, explaining that the White House press secretary clearly “was talking about” the fact that Hitler “didn’t resort to [chemical weapons] in the battlefield.”
Iraqi-funded Muslim spy who worked for U.S. House Democrats had Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s email password
The trouble in this new scandal just keeps getting deeper and deeper.
About five weeks ago, it was reported that dozens of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives had allowed four Muslim spies to have access to sensitive security information that they weren’t legally authorized to see, and had paid each of them a salary of $160,000 a year. The Democrats had ignored various red flags, such as their shady real estate dealings, massive amounts of debt, and criminal activities, because they did not want to be accused of “Islamophobia.” You can read about it here and here.
Then about two weeks later, we were given an update with new information: at the same time that these House Democrats allowed these Muslim spies to steal U.S. security secrets and paid them salaries of $160,000 a year, these Muslim spies accepted a $100,000 payment from an Iraqi politician. And again, these House Democrats looked the other way, because they did not want to be accused of “Islamophobia.”
Now we have another update with more new information: one of these Muslim spies had Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s email password at the same time that the hacked DNC emails were given to WikiLeaks. And yet again, these House Democrats looked the other way, because they did not want to be accused of “Islamophobia.”

These are the 23 Senators that introduced a bill to let telecoms sell your private internet history
March 8, 2017
Protection of your Internet history is up in the air thanks to new, pending legislation. A new bill coming before Senate aims to completely dismantle the FCC’s ability to enact data security or online privacy protections for consumers under the powers of the Congressional Review Act. Senate Joint Resolution (S.J.Res 34) was introduced by Arizona Senator Jeff Flake and cosponsored by 23 other Senators. Its goal is to remove all the hard-earned net neutrality regulations gained to protect your internet history from advertisers and and worse. Specifically, the FCC had been able to prevent internet service providers (ISPs) from spying on your internet history, and selling what they gathered, without express permission. This legal protection on your internet history is currently under attack thanks to these 23 Senators and lots of ISP lobbying spend. While S.J.Res 34 has support from two dozen Republican Senators, Senators willing to champion the privacy of Americans’ internet history have also come out of the woodwork.
These 23 Senators want to let your internet history be sold.
The list of 23 Senators cosponsoring this bill, including Senator Jeff Flake, is:
– John Barrasso (R-Wyo.)
– Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.)
– Roy Blunt (R-Mo.)
– John Boozman (R-Ark.)
– Shelly Moore Capito (R-W.Va.)
– Thad Cochran (R-Miss.)
– John Cornyn (R-Texas)
– Tom Cotton (R-Ark.)
– Ted Cruz (R-Texas)
– Deb Fischer (R-Neb.)
– Orrin Hatch (R-Utah)
– Dean Heller (R-Nev.)
– James Inhofe (R-Okla.)
– Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.)
– Mike Lee (R-Utah)
– Rand Paul (R-Ky.)
– Pat Roberts (R-Kan.)
– Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)
– Richard Shelby (R-Ala.)
– Dan Sullivan (R-Ark.)
– John Thune (R-S.D.)
– Roger Wicker (R-Miss.)
– Jerry Moran (R-Kan.)
We can always count on Nancy Pelosi to provide us with humor and entertainment as she, time and time again, displays proof that she is bat guano insane.
For her latest display, Breitbart reports:
Pelosi: ‘I Would Have Been Gone By Now’ If Hillary Had Won
While speaking with reporters on Friday, House Minority Leader Representative Nancy Pelosi stated of the 2016 presidential election, “I would have been gone by now if she had won.”
Pelosi said that the Affordable Care Act is “a pillar” and that if Clinton was in office, she wouldn’t worry about the ACA going away. Pelosi continued that “we all knew” Clinton would win.
She added that Trump winning “motivated me her to stay.” And “I would have been gone by now if she had won.”
So, here are the facts, according Pelosi:
1) Pelosi “knew” that Hillary Clinton would win the election.
2) If Clinton won the election, Pelosi would no longer stay in the U.S. House of Representatives.
3) Pelosi ran for reelection.
See the contradiction there? If Pelosi “knew” that Clinton would win, and if Clinton winning would mean that Pelosi would no longer be in the House, then why did Pelosi run for reelection in the first place?
If everything that Pelosi had said was true – i.e., if she truly believed that Clinton would win, and if Clinton winning would mean that Pelosi would no longer be a member of the U.S. House – then Pelosi would not have run for reelection.
But she did run for reelection.
Therefore, her statement is completely lacking in logic.
Recently on Interstate 40 between Winston-Salem and Greensboro in North Carolina, an anonymous party paid to have a billboard put up which says “Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.”
Here’s a photograph of the billboard (which comes form this website, and which I am showing under fair use):
Two women who disagree with the message on the billboard – Paula Atwood and Kathryn Rende – have set up this GoFundMe page to raise money to put up a billboard with their own message to counter the message on the original billboard.
However, according to the the list of people who have donated to their fundraiser, these two women, who are trying to disprove the claim that “real men provide – real women appreciate it,” are themselves accepting and appreciating money from men.
So while the intent of these two women was to disprove the claim that was made on the original billboard, the actual result of their actions was that they ended up reinforcing the claim.
David Seaman is a journalist who was fired from Huffington Post in August 2016 after he truthfully wrote that Hillary Clinton had serious medical issues. By writing about Clinton’s ill health when he did, Seaman managed to beat each and every mainstream media outlet on this true story.
Very recently, YouTube took down Seaman’s videos. This is not the first time that YouTube has done that. His channel is at https://www.youtube.com/user/davidseamanonline/videos
Also, in the past, Seaman’s PalPal account was locked, rendering Seaman unable to access his own money.
Seaman has recently made a huge number of YouTube videos about “Pizzagate.” I don’t know if “Pizzagate” is real or not. But the fact that people with a lot of power are using their power to harass Seaman, instead of suing him for defamation, makes me think that there is probably truth to Seaman’s claims. If “Pizzagate” is real, the last thing its criminal participants would want is a legal court trial involving actual evidence.
Also, I just found out that earlier this year, one of Seaman’s friends was murdered.
Seaman recently made this video. Please note that this is not Seaman’s YouTube channel, which, as I said, has had all of its videos removed by YouTube:

Because of the Oklahoma judges who kept giving zero jail time to this serial drunk driver, he finally managed to kill an innocent person
Records show Oklahoma man arrested for DUI following deadly NYE crash has pleaded guilty to DUI 4 times before
January 2, 2017
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma man who was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol following a deadly crash on New Year’s Eve has pleaded guilty to the same charge four times in the past, court records show.
Around 11 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, 37-year-old Amanda Carson, of Yukon, was driving with her three passengers on the Kilpatrick Turnpike near Wilshire Boulevard in Canadian County when the accident happened.
Although officials are still investigating the cause of the crash, authorities did confirm Carson’s SUV was involved in a crash with a car driven by 30-year-old Craig Maker.
Carson was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Officials say Carson was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
Three of Carson’s passengers – a 4-year-old girl, a 9-year-old girl, and an 18-year-old girl – were also transported to a local hospital to be treated for their injuries.
The 18-year-old and the 9-year-old were admitted in critical condition, officials say.
The 4-year-old was treated and released.
Friends of the family have set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for funeral and medical expenses.
Maker, who was treated and released for a leg injury, was arrested and booked into the Canadian County Jail for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Court records show Maker has been charged for driving under the influence of alcohol at least four times in the past.
He received a suspended sentence and community service the first three times he was charged and a deferred 10-year sentence the fourth time he was charged.
No word yet if Maker will face other charges in connection to the crash.
KFOR will know more once the investigation is complete.
Milo: White Nationalism is Not the Answer
January 26, 2017
Breitbart News Senior Editor MILO declared that “white pride,” “white nationalism,” and “white supremacy,” are not the answer during his talk at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs tonight, urging people to avoid fighting left-wing identity politics with identity politics.
“The reality is, if you force everyone to play identity politics, if you insist in pitting whites against blacks, women against men, straights against gays, the reality is you guys are gonna win and the left isn’t going to like it very much,” declared MILO. “But there’s a better way. Don’t fight identity politics with identity politics.”
“White pride, white nationalism, white supremacy isn’t the way to go,” he continued. “The way to go is reminding them and yourselves that you should be aspiring to values and to ideas.”
“You should be focusing on what unites people and not what drives them apart,” MILO concluded. “You shouldn’t give a shit about skin color, a shit about sexuality… You shouldn’t give a shit about gender, and you should be deeply suspicious of the people who do.”
Video shows the U.S. president groping a woman. But the President is Clinton, not Trump, so the political left is perfectly OK with it.
Here’s a video of the U.S. President groping a woman, when he mistakenly thought the camera was turned off.
If this was President Trump, the political left would, justifiably so, be very upset.
But it’s not President Trump. It’s President Clinton. And to those on the political left, that makes it perfectly acceptable.
Also, note the ABC News logo on the bottom right corner. The video’s description at YouTube refers to the video as “uncovered ABC footage,” which suggests that it was never aired at all, on any local or national news broadcast. If this had been Trump, the national mainstream media would be playing this clip all across the country, day and night, for a very long time. But since it’s Clinton, that kind of media exposure didn’t happen, so almost no one knows about it. Media bias at its finest.
217 people who used Trump’s inauguration as an excuse to commit violence, arson, vandalism, etc., could each get 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine
I hope that each and every person who used Trump’s inauguration as an excuse to commit violence, arson, vandalism, etc., gets the maximum penalty that the law calls for. And if that ends up being 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, then so be it. Actions have consequences.
These are federal charges. If they try to skip out on bail, there will be serious consequences from law enforcement. They could get raided at home in the middle of the night, or at their place of employment, or at their school. They’d best show up at their appointed court date.
Many Arrested Inauguration Day Protesters Will Face Felony Rioting Charges, Prosecutors Say
January 21, 2017
WASHINGTON (CBSNEWS/AP) – Most of the approximately 230 protesters arrested on Inauguration Day will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the offense is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The office said most of those arrested will be released without having to post bail and must return to court in February.
A first group of 10 men appeared in Superior Court just before 3 p.m., and their lawyer entered a not guilty plea on their behalf. A judge released all of them on the condition they not get re-arrested in the District of Columbia.
Interim D.C. police chief Peter Newsham said Friday that 217 people were being charged with rioting.
The arrests took place in a four-block stretch of downtown Washington around the time of President Trump’s swearing-in ceremony.
The arrests came after some protesters created chaos. Windows of downtown businesses were smashed, and police deployed pepper spray and “sting balls” against the crowd.
Detroit News: “Too many votes in 37% of Detroit’s precincts” and “95 Detroit poll books missing for several days”
Too many votes in 37% of Detroit’s precincts
December 13, 2016
Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of The Detroit News.
Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an audit by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday.
The Detroit precincts are among those that couldn’t be counted during a statewide presidential recount that began last week and ended Friday following a decision by the Michigan Supreme Court.
Democrat Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly prevailed in Detroit and Wayne County. But Republican President-elect Donald Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes or 47.5 percent to 47.3 percent.
Overall, state records show 10.6 percent of the precincts in the 22 counties that began the retabulation process couldn’t be recounted because of state law that bars recounts for unbalanced precincts or ones with broken seals.
The problems were the worst in Detroit, where discrepancies meant officials couldn’t recount votes in 392 precincts, or nearly 60 percent. And two-thirds of those precincts had too many votes.
Republican state senators last week called for an investigation in Wayne County, including one precinct where a Detroit ballot box contained only 50 of the 306 ballots listed in a poll book, according to an observer for Trump.
95 Detroit poll books missing for several days
December 15, 2016
Detroit elections officials waited several days to deliver nearly 100 poll books to Wayne County officials charged with certifying the presidential election, newly released documents show.
County clerk officials on Thursday released a memo to State Elections Director Chris Thomas that said 95 poll books from the 662 precincts weren’t available at the start of the canvass, which began the day after the Nov. 8 election. Five of those poll books, which contain the names of voters and ensure the integrity of elections, were never delivered to county canvassers and presumably remain missing.
The memo from county elections official Jennifer Redmond to the state also shows poll books in 101 Detroit precincts were not delivered in sealed envelopes, as the law requires.
Separate county documents obtained by The News show that poll books in 17 precincts were missing seal numbers from ballot boxes, as is required by state law.
Another Detroit precinct contained 50 of the 306 ballots listed in a poll book, according to an observer for Trump.
