Jane Chastain : Politically Direct

Women: Vote with Your Brains not Your Gentials

with 3 comments

The cast of Orange is the New Black reached a new low (even for this disgusting sitcom) this week when it posed wearing “Vaginas Against Trump” T-shirts.  These shirts have been available on-line for $16.99 for over a year now.  Just an example of the class displayed by some Hillary supporters.   And she has the nerve to call Trump supporters “deplorable.”

For the record, I am sick about the choice we face in this election and I stand by all the previous columns I have written criticizing the now Republican nominee.  Nevertheless, it is the choice we face and voters are asked to choose between bad and worse.  We must choose between someone who has been a womanizer and someone who has enabled a womanizer who actually abused women while holding public office.  This is a far more serious offense, not only against these women, but against the offices he held and the public trust.

Hillary Clinton: The User

with one comment

Hillary Clinton is a user.  No, to my knowledge she doesn’t do illegal drugs.  Her drug of choice is political power and it should be obvious to anyone who is paying attention she has and will use anything or anyone to get it.  The best example is her 41 year marriage to a charismatic serial philanderer, who used his charm to become president of the United States and now is attempting to use that charm to secure power again through his dutifully addicted wife.

After failing to pass the bar exam in Washington, D.C., Hillary managed to pass a much easier one in Arkansas and, at that point, decided to hitch her wagon to Bill Clinton, who was running for a seat in the United States Congress.  Although Bill lost that election, two years later he was elected attorney general and then governor of the state.  It was a perfect setup.  Hillary was made a partner in the Rose Law Firm where she served as “rainmaker,” securing wealthy clients for the firm who, in turn, wanted favors from the state.

Tim Kaine: One of Lenin’s Useful Idiots

with one comment

I have never understood the preoccupation by some with the health of Hillary Clinton.  Time would be better spent pointing out her obvious character flaws, her unsuitability for public office and her willingness to exploit political power for personal gain.  That said, recent developments have caused us to take a closer look at the man she selected to be her running mate, Senator Tim Kaine.

Like many, I considered him to be somewhat moderate.  After all, when he campaigned for governor of Virginia, he ran as a committed Catholic, gun-owning,  tax-adverse Democrat.  However, his record in government is quite the opposite.  By far, the most troubling aspect of his resume is the time he spent in Honduras in the early 80’s between college and law school.  It was there that he was taught by a group of Jesuits who broke with the Vatican over the issue of liberation theology — the unholy marriage between Marxist revolutionaries and the church.   Read the rest of this entry »

Mother Teresa, Hillary and You

with 2 comments

Here in this country we spend over a trillion dollars a year on poverty programs.  Over 45 million people in the United States are classified as “poor.”  However, most of our citizens have never seen real poverty or know what it is.  My eyes were opened when I visited Haiti in 1968, and again in 1985, when I visited India, the country adopted by Mother Teresa.

Unlike Mother Teresa, I did not go to India willingly.  I struggled with the Lord for weeks before I agreed to make that journey in order to help Siloam International, now Childcare Worldwide, with a fundraising film.   That was a life-changing event for me.

Three years later I had an opportunity to meet Mother Teresa and pray with her.   The woman, who was canonized by the Catholic Church Sunday, went to St. Louis, Missouri, to speak to the annual conference of the Presbyterian Church USA about its pro-abortion stance.  She was invited by Presbyterians Pro-Life, a small group of reformers seeking to bring the denomination back to its biblical roots.

PPL is a dedicated group.  It didn’t have any money but she came anyway because, in her words, “As to my calling I belong to the world. As to my heart, I belong entirely to the heart of Jesus.”

To her critics who say she was only interested in making converts to the Catholic Church, I say nonsense!  I and the members of PPL know better.

We didn’t know how many of those powerful church leaders who represented three million parishioners would come to this event.  It was not an official part of the General Assembly and the turnout for PPL events was usually very small.   After that prayer session we headed down to the meeting at the Sheraton Hotel and, to our surprise, the place was packed.

That little nun, in a tattered sweater, gave it to them straight and caused many to squirm in their seats: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbOw7tJeUCM

“Abortion has become the greatest destroyer of love.  Millions of little children are being killed…That little unborn child in the womb of the mother is somebody special to the Lord, who died on the cross to save that child…Jesus came to give us the good news that God loves us and that we are to love one another…How will we face God if we have not received that little child.” 

Mother Teresa was never afraid to speak the truth to the powerful: church leaders, kings or presidents.  In 1994, she gave a similar message to the National Prayer Breakfast, with a stunned President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton sitting at the head table.  https://www.c-span.org/video/?54274-1/national-prayer-breakfast

The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself…Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.

After that speech, Mother Teresa received a standing ovation that lasted a good five minutes.  The first couple sat glued to their seats, stone-faced.  Did Mother Teresa make that speech to embarrass the Clintons?

No.  Aborting one’s child does not bring peace but pain, as the mother either comes to a point where she can acknowledge this sin and find forgiveness or she must work for a lifetime to suppress this memory.

A year later, Hillary Clinton, in an effort to erase this embarrassment and find common ground with Mother Teresa, opened an adoption home for babies in her name in Washington, D.C.  Clinton is found of telling this story.  She cited it in her book Living History.

Funny thing, Emily Belz, a reporter for World Magazine, did an investigation and discovered the home closed within a few years.  It seems the nuns who ran it weren’t allowed to care for the babies on site without medical personnel.

Surely, a woman with the clout of Hillary Clinton could have cut through the red tape or provided the funds or medical personnel necessary!  Apparently not.  What about the vast resources of the Clinton Foundation?

Clearly, it was a publicity stunt by Clinton, who has been a tool of the radical abortion extremists and the industry that makes millions each year from these killings, nothing more.

Mother Teresa showed us how to live.  Hillary Clinton shows us how to lie, obfuscate and, yes, play those who confront her with whom she disagrees.

Hillary Clinton Hypocrisy on the Wage Gap (The Democrats Political Unicorn)

with 4 comments

I was having brunch with some new, very accomplished, female friends when the subject of the presidential race came up.  One of these friends announced that she was a Democrat because she believes in equality.

Women now control 51 percent of all wealth in the U.S.  They hold 52 percent of management and professional positions.  They earn more degrees of higher learning and own 30 percent of all private businesses.  Still, one of the key myths promoted every election cycle is the wag gap.  It’s the  political unicorn used to persuade millions of women that they are victims of inequality and they need Democrats like Hillary Clinton to save them.   Like the legendary horse from classical antiquity, it doesn’t exist.   Read the rest of this entry »
