The Times Lies Again, All Lives Matter, A Supreme Betrayal

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: The Times Lies Again
Here we go again. Elements of the Deep State are working with the New York Times to smear the president of the United States. This time, they claim that the president knew Russians were paying the Taliban to kill Americans in Afghanistan. This is insane!
  • The Taliban have been killing Americans for 20 years. They don't need Russian bounties to encourage their bloodlust.
  • The intelligence was raw, unconfirmed data. As officials investigated it, they could not confirm it.
  • Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe confirmed that President Trump and other senior White House officials were not briefed on the intelligence because you don't share unconfirmed reports with the president.
  • Former Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell responded to the report by tweeting, "I never heard this," meaning that the investigation of the raw data had not even made it to his level before he stepped down last month.
Beyond that, what do the president's critics want in response? More U.S. troops going to Afghanistan? War with Russia?

Here's something that was corroborated. Not long after U.S. forces overthrew Saddam Hussein, a vicious terrorist campaign was unleashed against our soldiers. Powerful new roadside bombs were deployed in Iraq made by the mullahs of Iran. Thousands of American troops were killed or maimed by those weapons.

While this was happening, and while Barack Obama and Joe Biden knew who was behind these attacks, the Obama Administration was conducting secret negotiations with Iran.

When it was all over, they gave Iran billions of dollars in cash and sanctions relief in exchange for Iran's meaningless promises to delay its nuclear weapons program.

Meanwhile, American families were waiting for caskets to return home or for their sons or daughters to come home missing arms and legs. But that never made the front page of the New York Times. Nor did it stop most Democrat senators from voting for the terrible Iranian nuclear deal.

All Lives Matter
Kudos to my good friend Vice President Mike Pence!

Vice President Pence stood firm in the face of the media mob this Sunday, as well as the mob in the streets, by refusing to repeat the divisive slogan, "Black Lives Matter." He was pressed to do so during an appearance on CBS's "Face The Nation."

Of course Black Lives Matter, as do Asian lives, Hispanic lives and Caucasian lives. That's the truth. And it's also a central Christian principle that the color of our skin is the least unique thing about us. What makes us special is that we are made in the image of God, and the vice president strongly believes that. Pence said:

"All my life, I've been inspired by the example of the reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. . . I cherish the progress that we have made towards a more perfect union for African-Americans throughout our history. . . And as a pro-life American, I also believe that all life matters, born and unborn.

"But what I see in the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement is a political agenda of the radical left that would defund the police that would tear down monuments, that would press a radical left agenda. . .

"I really believe that all lives matter, and that's where the heart of the American people lies."

Pence is right. A recent poll found that 59% of likely voters prefer the phrase "All lives matter." Just 30% prefer "Black Lives Matter." Even among black voters, 47% prefer "All Lives Matter" to 44% who prefer "Black Lives Matter."

So the controversy is not with the American people, but with the media elites and radical leftists who want to divide and destroy us with racial rhetoric.

And the "Black Lives Matter" chant is certainly used selectively. It obviously doesn't matter in Chicago, where dozens of black Americans are gunned down virtually every weekend or when it comes to Planned Parenthood's pushing abortion in black communities.

"All Lives matter" means all. It means black lives too, and whatever is undermining the dignity of every human life.

For those of you on Twitter, click here to thank the vice president for his unapologetic stand for truth.

A Supreme Betrayal
John Roberts strikes again. Today he sided with the court's four liberals to strike down Louisiana's pro-life law that required abortionists to meet certain health and safety standards.

The majority ruled that the Louisiana case was very similar to a 2016 case in which Justice Anthony Kennedy overturned a Texas law for allegedly creating an undue burden on women and abortion providers.

Four years ago, Roberts voted with the court's pro-life conservative justices. But this time, he voted against Justices Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. He accepted Kennedy's 2016 decision under the principle of "stare decisis," meaning that for the sake of consistency, previous Supreme Court decisions must stand.

Words cannot express my profound disappointment with Roberts. Once again, we see him engaging in legal gymnastics to avoid principled conservative decisions, even disagreeing with himself to do so.

Getting Tough
I've heard from many friends who say they are frustrated that President Trump doesn’t appear to be doing enough to stop the radicals taking over our streets and tearing down our historic monuments. Let me remind you about what the president has done.
  • Law enforcement is primarily a state and local issue. But Trump used the bully pulpit to shame liberal governors into calling out the National Guard.
  • He signed an executive order aggressively enforcing laws against the desecration of historic monuments.
  • Attorney General William Barr is prosecuting the barbarians who are attacking memorials. Four people were indicted over the weekend for last week's attempt to destroy a statue of Andrew Jackson.
  • More than 70 rioters have already been charged, and federal attorneys across the country are investigating hundreds of cases, methodically tracking down people caught on video. More prosecutions will be coming.
Meanwhile, a man was arrested and charged for tearing down a Ten Commandments monument in Montana. I couldn't help but notice a hidden message in that news. We've been tearing down the Ten Commandments for years by not following them, which explains the corruption from Wall Street to the streets of Chicago and other great cities.

Speaking of Afghanistan, here's the latest fatality report: 63 people were shot and 16 were killed over the weekend. Oh wait, those are the figures from Chicago. I'm sure streets will be filled with protesters concerned about those black lives.

Waiting. . . Waiting. . . Waiting. . .

Back To School
The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued guidelines "strongly advocating" that the primary goal of local school districts should be to fight the coronavirus but to also make sure that children are "physically present in school."

Children play a major role in spreading the flu, but they seem to have had little role in spreading Covid-19. They also face little risk from the disease as well. It is important for their education, as well as their emotional health, that our nation's children get back to school as soon as possible.

The social isolation of this pandemic is taking a tremendous toll on many people, including many children. In fact, one of our staff members is dealing with a child who is struggling to cope with the upheavals and uncertainty of this unprecedented time.
