California Gags the Gig Economy — Once again, the malice and/or economic ignorance of the Left will harm countless people while benefiting just a few.

All of this flexibility would go away as soon as I become a “permanent employee.” As Uber and Lyft have pointed out, this means that employees would have to work only in predetermined scheduled shifts. No more picking up a rider on the way to or from work for a few extra bucks. No more deciding last minute to use a few hours off on the weekend to generate some side income.With 76 percent of Lyft drivers working less than 10 hours a week, that means a majority of Lyft drivers would lose the flexibility they’ve enjoyed. For many, that’ll likely mean having to give up the gig altogether.

So this bill that supposedly supports the rights of gig workers will punish up to 76 percent of Lyft employees in order to provide higher wages to those who survive the decimation.On top of that, the sudden loss of drivers coupled with the increase in expenses will only result in higher prices. Let’s face it: Uber and Lyft aren’t going to eat the cost. They’ll pass it on to us, the consumers. The latest estimate says ride-sharing will cost up to 30 percent more per ride.

Once again, the people who suffer are the very people the bill claims it will support. 41.8 million Americans used Uber in March 2018 alone, many of whom relied on Uber to get to and from work. This bill could destroy the livelihood of these people living day-to-day, trying to make ends meet, who find that now their commute costs have increased 30 percent while they also lose the extra income from a convenient side gig.

Proponents of the bill have gained support by asking gig workers, “Do you want more money?” Of course the answer is yes. And for a small portion of them, they’ll get what they wished for.I don’t deny that the bill will raise some gig workers’ average hourly wage. But let’s face the facts: while this bill could benefit some gig workers, it would undoubtedly harm many more. Perhaps voters in California should reconsider and vote according to the facts, not according to a misled heart.


ERLC Releases Soros-Approved Immigration Propaganda Guide for Children

The guide did not inform parents or children that nearly 80% of people who cross our borders illegally are men. Neither does it mention that nearly 20% of immigrants are trafficked like slaves. Neither does it mention that nearly a fifth of children who come into the United States are actually kidnapped hostages not related to those posing as their parents because kids make it more likely for immigration officials to let criminals pass checkpoints. Neither does it mention that nearly a quarter of illegal aliens are known to have committed felonies inside the United States.

Reflection of Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum | The Domain for Truth

First it seems my generation idealized socialism and even communism. But we must see communism as the evil that it is. Uncensored, un-sanitized and its fruit. Its tryannical. Its capable of causing some of the greatest evils we have seen on earth. It promises so much but deliver the least than any other ideology and isms. It promises so much because it assumes the state has the power of a god, capable of fixing everything and coercing others to follow one’s social agenda. But that all encompassing power means the ones having it become corrupt or they become paranoid that someone will want their power. Either way through paranoia or intent incredible evil against dissidents (real or imagine) takes place, all under the justification of ensuring a political agenda not be stopped.

Secondly sometimes you hear people say religion causes suffering and evil in this world. But organized secularism has a history of doing the same thing if not at a scale more horrifying than most leftists college in a “safe space” university can imagine. I’m thinking of purposeful mass starvation, genocide and tryanny over the people. The irony of some organized secular humanistic worldview with a political ideology is that historically speaking from the 20th century once they are in charge that are the biggest jihadist in imposing upon others their own blasphemy codes. You have Tuol Sleng become a temple offering sacrifices to the state and Marx is the prophet of their utopia. But their utopia is hell on earth.


WORLD Magazine Cover Story Suggests ECFA Accreditation is a Rubber Stamp

However, the WORLD article does a great job of revealing why ECFA does such an abysmal job of holding organizations accountable. The group is paid by its member organizations, not donors. In fact, more than 75-percent of ECFA’s total revenue comes from fees charged to members. So there’s a clear financial incentive for ECFA to continue accrediting its members, regardless of performance.

5 incredible revelations from this week’s abortion hearing in California

ONE. The prosecution was initiated by Planned Parenthood asking Loretta Lynch (at the time, the US Attorney General) to reach out to Kamala Harris (at the time the State Attorney General in California) to investigate the journalists who made the videos. In other words, the investigation was obviously politically driven, and Harris took orders from Lynch, while Lynch took direction from Planned Parenthood. The State was forced to turn over a letter from Lynch to Harris, which was cited as the reason for initiating the case. That’s not the way any of this is supposed to work.

Two. The State of California let Planned Parenthood see and edit the search warrant to be served on Daleiden, before it was executed. Thus, Planned Parenthood got to ensure that the devices Daleiden used were included on the warrant, and got to approve the scope of the investigation.

Three. The search warrant deceptively edited California law to cover the violence of abortions. California law prohibits “wire-tapping” without consent. In other words, you cannot record a private conversation without both parties consent. However, the law has an express exception—if the purpose of the recording is to uncover evidence of a crime of violence, then the recording is not illegal. Obviously the defense would say that the illegal sale of fetal tissue acquired through “crunchy” methods is a violent crime, and obviously the prosecution would disagree. Yet Planned Parenthood and the State of California edited the exception clause out of the law included in the search warrant. So the judge who signed off on it didn’t have the full text of the law in front of him to being with.

Four. Planned Parenthood originally went to the LAPD and filed a criminal complaint against Daleiden and Merritt. The LAPD declined to pass along the complaint to prosecutors, because it was on its face absurd. The law prohibits recording “private conversations” and because the videos were made in public restaurants, there was nothing illegal about them. This is why Planned Parenthood then reached out Lynch and asked her to pressure Harris.

Five. The most important revelation at this hearing was the admission from one of the doctors in Daleiden’s video that the videos themselves were not edited or doctored. Remember that when the stories first broke, the standard pro-abortion line was that the videos were “deceptively edited.” But now, in court and under oath, that is shown to be false.


Amy Klobuchar Inadvertently Makes Perfect Argument for Concealed Carry — Hey, we agree!  Even fast police response time isn’t enough.  You need concealed carry to deter criminals and protect people.   And how about proving that you can confiscate all illegal drugs and current illegal weapons before you come after legal gun owners!

“In Dayton, Ohio where in thirty seconds one man guns down innocent people. The cops got there in one minute and it still wasn’t enough to save those people.”


When Do You Need Life Insurance?  Good advice.  Key question: Are there people who depend on your finances that would be negatively impacted should you die?  If so, you should have some sort of policy.


The Impending End of The Age of Oil. But Not This Week.  This graph has some of the best news in decades.  Less dependence on foreign oil is profoundly good for us and bad for our enemies.  So of course the Left wants to stop drilling.

I’d even make the case that when energy is cheap, freedom flourishes.  Why have a slave?  It’s much cheaper to have a gas powered weed trimmer.  Slavery is immoral, but cheap energy removes that pesky incentive.  Why have serfs?  You have to feed them, which is a big drawback.  If the Russian Emperor had used tractors instead, he might have lived long enough to be on Dancing with the Czars®.


Houston Hatefest: Dems Go Nasty — What’s not to hate about their platform?  Republicans across the board should offer their positive ideas, but just repeating the Dems’ foolish and evil ideas and saying, “I’m for the opposite of that” would be effective.

That ideological vision includes a doubly unconstitutional confiscation of weapons through executive fiat endorsed by Senator Kamala Harris and O’Rourke (“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47”), abolition of private health insurance in a bill sponsored by Senators Sanders and Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden’s insistence that “nobody should be in jail for a nonviolent crime,” reparations for slavery supported by O’Rourke, a wealth tax proposed by Warren, Senator Cory Booker’s call to “create an office in the White House to deal with the problem of white supremacy and hate crimes,” Harris demanding that government “de-incarcerate women and children” (even ones who murder?), Andrew Yang wanting to “give every American 100 democracy dollars that you only give to candidates and causes you like,” and the entire stage endorsing open borders, if in muted terms during this debate, and amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Democrats hate blacks.

And that includes their media accomplices, of course.  There are no other explanations for the following.

  1. They know that promoting out-of-wedlock births is terrible for families and dooms them to generational poverty, but they need that permanent black underclass to provide faithful Democratic votes.  Democrats have had monopoly control over most inner city politics, schools and media for over half a century, and look what it has done for blacks.  Remember the Democrat Death Spiral: “a vicious cycle by which miserable economic conditions lead to government dependency and class envy, leading to Democrat electoral victories, leading to higher taxes and crippling regulations, leading to still more miserable economic conditions.”  Even if their intentions were good, Leftists literally fail at basic economics.
  2. That said, they still hate black people so much that they push abortion on them, resulting in black children being killed at a rate three times that of whites.  Planned Parenthood kills more blacks in a day than the KKK has in their history, and it isn’t an accident.  So with my abortion position there would be many more blacks alive today.  Who are the real racists?
  3. They oppose charter schools, thereby condemning many black children to failing, dangerous, out of control schools.  They can’t stand any competition with their unions — even though countless teachers in Leftist areas who can afford it send their children to private schools.
  4. Because of number 2 the Democrats need more votes, so they import illegals by the truckload and want open borders.  That takes the jobs of low-income blacks and suppresses the wages of remaining jobs.
  5. They want to disarm blacks so they can’t defend themselves, all the while living in their safe, gated communities with home security systems and armed guards.
  6. They knowingly spread lies such as “hands up, don’t shoot” that promote riots and destroy black communities, all because it advances the Leftists’ agenda.  They have no intention of truly helping people in towns like Ferguson, especially after riots destroy the towns and even fewer businesses want to locate there.
  7. They talk down to blacks.  Studies show that conservative whites talk to blacks in a more normal fashion while Leftists condescend and dumb things down.  And they assume that blacks are too stupid to get an ID to be able to vote (although that is more about the Left wanting to steal elections with voter fraud).
  8. And to make all that worse, the Left — including the “Christian” Left — have the nerve to say that Republicans are the racists.  They create bitterness and divisiveness 24×7 just so they can increase their power.  No matter how well some blacks have done the Left gaslights them into thinking they are oppressed and must be miserable.  Whereas blacks used to want more policing in their communities, the Left has now convinced them to hate the police and to protect the drug dealers and thugs that destroy their neighborhoods and harm their children.
  9. They seek to destroy successful conservative blacks such as Clarence Thomas and Condoleezza Rice, referring to them as “Uncle Toms” and such.
  10. They turn a hypocritical blind eye to wickedly misogynistic, violent and hateful rap music even though they know it harms the black culture, yet they cry about “micro-aggressions” allegedly made by whites.

Trump-shaped 9th Circuit hands White House major win on asylum policy — Great news!  Good for Trump.

The San Francisco-based 9th Circuit now has seven Trump-appointed federal judges — more than any other federal appellate bench. The radical transformation of the court, which has 29 seats, is largely the result of Trump’s push to nominate conservative judges and bypass traditional consultations with Senate Democrats.

Thirteen of the 29 seats are now occupied by GOP-appointed judges. Last year, that number stood at six.

Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) filed H.R. 4169, the “Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund Act.” The bill would allow taxpayers “who are conscientiously opposed to participation in war” to send their tax dollars to a separate fund that would spend the revenue on non-military purposes.

In one question-and-answer session a young boy asks: “What are the different gender identities?” He is then praised by a head teacher for asking a “really, really exciting question”.The film cuts to a PSHE teacher called Kate Daniels, who explains to two other young children: “We know that we have got male and female, but there are over 100, if not more, gender identities now.”

The First Sexual Revolution: The Triumph of Christian Morality in the Roman Empire — Great summary of the history as well as the right applications for us.

If there were “winners” and “losers” in the Christian transformation of sexual morality, you could say that gay men and promiscuous Roman males were the losers, while women, slaves, prostitutes, and young boys were the big winners. “At the beginning of our story,” Harper writes, “the Mediterranean was home to a society where an emperor’s male beloved, victim of an untimely death, would be worshiped around the empire as a god; in this same society, the routine exploitation of slaves and poor women was a foundation of the sexual order. By the end, we are in a world where the emperor will command the gory mutilation of men caught in same-sex affairs, even as he affirmed the moral dignity of women without any civic claim to honor”

. . .

Lessons to Be Learned

Harper’s book is a work of academic history. For the most part, he doesn’t comment on the history he presents either to approve it or condemn it. It should go without saying—but I’ll say it anyway—that the first centuries of the church’s history were not necessarily purer or better than subsequent centuries. I trust that few Christians today are pining for Christian Empire, let alone the enforcement of Christian morality by physical mutilation. The lesson for the church today is not to attempt to recreate the church from another age.And yet, there are lessons to be learned from the transformation of sexual morality in late antiquity. Let me mention three.First, for most of its early history, the church’s power came through preaching, writing, and through its own rigorous system of membership and discipline. Even when she was ignored, harassed, or outright persecuted, the church still wielded important power simply by consistently preaching the truth, developing an apologetic for the truth, and insisting that its members believed and lived out the truth. You can’t win the larger culture by losing your own.

Second, Christianity went from cult to culture in part because the sexual ethic was considered better and safer and more freeing for more people. Obviously, not everyone found Christian morality to be an improvement on traditional Roman standards. But Christian ethics meant a profoundly improved lot in life for women, children, the enslaved, and the poor. The changes came slowly—over centuries, not over years and decades—but changes did come. Virginity, for example, became a loud advertisement for the Christian religion, and women in particular took notice.

Third, we should expect conflict over sex. If Christians in late antiquity had made peace with the world over sex, Christianity would not have been true to itself. The same can be said today. Profoundly different versions of sexual morality cannot be wished away by civil discourse (though civility is good), nor washed away by theological compromise (that would be bad). “Because the problem of sex is inevitably tied to the problem of Christianity’s relation to the world, it is a tension that will surface during any great readjustment in the relationship between Christianity and the world” (160). In other words, the problem is not going away. Let’s hope the church’s winsome commitment to beauty and truth doesn’t either.

I love this brief passage.  Paul was filled with the Holy Spirit while he whaled on a fake like this.  Yes, I know we shouldn’t open all our conversations like that, but it sure applies to people like Chuck Currie, Mark Sandlin, Rachel Held Evans (when she was living), Benny Hinn, Bill Johnson, and so many other “Christian” Leftists and false teachers.  Bonus feature: It corrects the mistaken notion that Saul changed his name to Paul.

Acts 13:9–10 But Saul, who was also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him and said, “You son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord?”


I’ve had this conversation multiple times, except for the part where the phony admits he is deflecting.  They do it so reflexively.

Christian: Romans 1 teaches that homosexual behavior is a sin.

“Christian” Leftist: But it also teaches that many other things are sins – you need to read the rest of the chapter!

Christian: I did, and I agree that those things are also sins. So you agree that homosexual behavior is a sin?

“Christian” Leftist: No, of course not. I was just deflecting.


This is probably wishful thinking on my part, but I’m hoping that the ridiculous excesses of the “trans” movement make a few middle ground people revisit the rest of the letters in the LGBTQX alphabet soup of perversions.  After all, if one of them insists, with a straight face, that biological males have a right to taxpayer-funded womb transplants from dead women then perhaps some of the other sexual preferences are equally wrong.

The Comey-Brennan Conspiracy to Violate Trump’s Civil Rights — When Nixon went bad even Republicans knew he was wrong.  But the Left still thinks Trump was guilty and doesn’t want to know what really happened.  And the media does know and still covers it up.

Elizabeth Warren is a foolish, hypocritical clown.  Her platform would be terrible for the country.  We are so much better off economically if government stays out of things.  No coercion necessary!  And for such an open borders anti-American, she sure hates foreign workers.  We all outsource things — all day, every day.  I don’t know anyone who makes all their own food, tools, clothes, etc.  The distribution of labor is  a beautiful thing.


Why We Must Ban Sledgehammers –She called the police.  Now she’s dead.  But as the post notes, Leftists who demand “equality” insist that this woman should be unarmed, even though her having a gun — or even the murderer thinking she might have a gun — would have truly equalized things.  Use this example on any of the gun-grabbers: “If you want equality, why do you oppose women arming themselves to equalize the strength difference with men and to prevent rapes and murders?”

It’s funny that the party making so much noise about equality is adamantly opposed to equalizers. How is a woman to defend herself from a guy coming at her with a sledgehammer if not by exercising her Second Amendment rights? Calling the cops won’t help. Not even already being on the phone with them helped the victim in this tragic story.
