The shameful “SheDecides” campaign, launched by deluded feminist politicians who measure the success of their “development aid” by the number of abortions they can finance with EU taxpayers’ money, has announced that it has collected pledges amounting to 181 million Euro from various donors, mostly governments of a small group of EU Member States. This falls short of the group’s ambition to compensate Planned Parenthood, Marie Stopes, and other baby-murderer syndicates posturing as “healthcare providers” for the effects of the US administration’s decision to reinstate the Mexico City policy.

There is increasing concern among Catholic faithful that Pope Francis, in a weird attempt to reconcile the Catholic Church with “modernity”, is making concessions that are clearly at odds with doctrine. This should be worrying not only Catholics, but everyone who believes that all human beings should fully enjoy the protection of their human rights and dignity from the time of conception unto death, because the Catholic Church has for many decades been a lonesome bulwark to advocate and defend these rights against the relentless attacks ideologues and self-serving pressure groups, to which certain governments and international organizations have been all too receptive.

If all went according to the will of the Western European political and media establishment, then there could be no doubt about outcome of the upcoming US Presidential elections: according to our opinion makers it is simply incomprehensible how anyone could ever want to elect someone else than Hillary Clinton, who holds the “right” (i.e., fashionably left) views on social issues like abortion, LGBT rights, etc., and could thus be counted upon to appoint like-minded judges for the Supreme Court, which, besides foreign policy, is the most important task for US Presidents. Plus, she would be the first female President (unless, of course, Obama, during the last weeks of his term, discovers that in fact he is female and wants to use the women’s toilets together with the other girls…) – and the world’s single remaining superpower being governed by a woman is just soooo thrilling a perspective that it must, it absolutely must, come true.
But the problem is: the US Presidential elections are not going to be decided by European politician and media. Continue reading
