Montana’s Missing Women’s Crisis

WHY, WHY, WHY is this problem not seen as a “problem” – in fact, it is much worse than a problem, it is a travesty that oozes of bigotry. Where are the feminists who love to brag about caring about women? Where are the journalists who ignore this issue like it is nothing of importance? Where are the protests or marches from all sides? Where are the phone calls, e-mails, faxes, or letters that should be sent to the officials in Montana, the BIA, the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, AIM, the Department of Justice, National Crime Information Center, the Urban Indian Health Institute, and all the other sources that need to be contacted?

During a recent Senate Indian Affairs Committee hearing, it was said “that Native Americans in Montana and across this country are dealing with violence at a much higher rate than the rest of the population and you cannot set foot in Indian country without hearing a heartbreaking story about this growing problem.”

The problem is not new in Montana, but in 2019, four pieces of legislation are proposed that should, at the federal level, revamp the way the U.S. Department of Justice compiles a database on missing and murdered Native women to help make sure all law enforcement agencies have necessary information.

In 2016 in a report by the Urban Indian Health Institute said “according to the National Crime Information Center there were 5,712 reports cited of slain or missing Native American women and girls, but only 116 of those cases were logged into a Department of Justice database.” “One of the problems stated is that it takes so long to bring attention to the problem of missing and murdered Native women because of inaccurate stereotypes that degrade how people view Native women.”

According to Senator Jon Tester, “Where’s the problem? Is it with BIA, is it with the FBI, is it with tribal law enforcement?” Tester wondered aloud at the December 12 hearing. “Why are we not finding these people? We would have a different reaction if this was a non-native.”

The Department of Justice has said it’s taken steps to address the problem. Last September it announced more than $113 million in grants to improve public safety, serve victims of crime and combat violence against women in American Indian and Alaska native communities. (This I will have to see to believe that any of this money will go to helping the missing women and girls.)

Studies have shown that this is NOT just a problem in Montana but throughout 71 cities in other states. Police in many U.S. cities fail to track murdered and/or missing Indigenous women. Investigations have shown that records have not been kept, nor have the stories of these missing or murdered women and girls been covered on the news. They have been missing from life, from the news, and from documentation. THIS MUST END!

  • New York lawmakers are poised to pass legislation codifying rights protected by Roe v. Wade and other abortion rulings,

  • The measure to protect abortion rights in case they are overturned by the Supreme Court,

  • The bill would also authorize physician assistants and nurse practitioners to perform some abortions.

    (Original quote from the Democrat & Chronicle, Part of the U.S.A. Today Network)

    “ALBANY – The state Legislature on Tuesday afternoon will pass a long-stalled bill that will strengthen abortion rights in New York.

    The Reproductive Health Act is then expected to be signed into law later Tuesday at the state Capitol by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has pushed its passage for years.

    “We’re saying that here in New York, women’s health matters,” said Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, D-Yonkers. “We’re saying here in New York, women’s lives matter. We’re saying here in New York, women’s decisions matter.”

    The vote Tuesday comes on the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade court case in 1973. The Senate passed it.

    In addition to the abortion bill, the Democratic-controlled Legislature will pass the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act, which will require insurers to cover contraception for patients.

    They will also pass the “boss bill,” which would ban employers from discriminating against employees over their reproductive health-care decisions.”

    To read the entire article you can click click Here!

    The effort to update abortion rights in New York comes as abortion rates have declined to historic lows in the state and nation.

    Cuomo’s next attempt is to have the New York Constitution changed to include these new laws.

https://election.rtl.org/endorsements


According to the United States Census Bureau, In 2016, 61.4 percent of the citizen voting-age population reported voting, a number not statistically different from the 61.8 percent who reported voting in 2012. Voting rates have historically varied by race and Hispanic origin, and In 2012, voting rates for non-Hispanic blacks (66.6 percent) were higher than non-Hispanic whites (64.1 percent) for the first time since 1980, In 2016, turnout increased to 65.3 percent for non-Hispanic whites, but decreased to 59.6 percent for non-Hispanic blacks, which was only the second election in this series where the share of non-Hispanic black voters decreased, from 12.9 percent in 2012 to 11.9 percent in 2016.

When analyzed together, reported turnout by age, race and Hispanic origin differed in 2016 as well. In comparison to 2012, younger non-Hispanic whites between the ages of 18 to 29 and between the ages of 30 to 44 reported higher turnout in 2016, while voting rates for the two oldest groups of non-Hispanic whites were not statistically different (Figure 5). Meanwhile, for non-Hispanic blacks, turnout rates decreased in 2016 for every age group. For other race non-Hispanics and Hispanics of any race, voting rates between 2012 and 2016 were not statistically different for any age groups.

According to the Pew Research Center, The black voter turnout rate declined for the first time in 20 years in a presidential election, falling to 59.6% in 2016 after reaching a record-high 66.6% in 2012. The 7-percentage-point decline from the previous presidential election is the largest on record for blacks. (It’s also the largest percentage-point decline among any racial or ethnic group since white voter turnout dropped from 70.2% in 1992 to 60.7% in 1996.) The number of black voters also declined, falling by about 765,000 to 16.4 million in 2016, representing a sharp reversal from 2012.

The Latino voter turnout rate held steady at 47.6% in 2016, compared with 48.0% in 2012. the number of Latino voters grew to a record 12.7 million in 2016, up from 11.2 million in 2012. Even so, the number of Latino nonvoters – those eligible to vote who do not cast a ballot, or 14 million in 2016 – was larger than the number of Latino voters, a trend that extends back to each presidential election since 1996. Meanwhile, the Asian voter turnout rate increased to 49.3% in 2016, up from 46.9% in 2012 and surpassing Hispanics for the first time since 1996. Asians continue to represent a smaller share of voters than Hispanics: Overall, about 5 million Asians voted in 2016, up from 3.8 million in 2012.
Americans appear to be more engaged with this year’s midterm elections than they typically are. Not only do about half of registered voters report being more enthusiastic than usual about voting, up from 40% in 2014, but turnout has surged in the 31 states that already have held their congressional primaries – particularly among Democrats.

The total number of votes cast in Democratic House primaries so far this year is 84% higher than the total for the equivalent point in 2014. One reason: There have been a lot more contested primaries, which tend to attract more voters.
Republican turnout in House primaries also has increased, from a combined 8.6 million votes at this point in 2014 (7% of registered voters) to 10.7 million (7.9%) so far this year. But the increase is much smaller (24%) than on the Democratic side, and the total number of votes cast in Democratic House primaries is considerably higher. Overall turnout in U.S. Senate and gubernatorial primaries also is above 2014 levels.

Planned Parenthood Rolls Out $20 Million Campaign to Take on Trump at the Polls in 2018

w7hzcvnatlyctowuh5e2

According to Newsweek, “Planned Parenthood Votes and Planned Parenthood Action Fund is making a hefty investment in defeating anti-choice candidates in the upcoming midterm elections, announcing Thursday a $20 million campaign called “March. Vote. Win.”

The organization will be using the funds to target gubernatorial and Senate races in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, key states where Planned Parenthood organizers believe they can have the greatest impact. The money will go toward grassroots campaign efforts, as well as TV and digital advertising and mail programs to reach the largest number of voters possible…..”This is only the beginning of our political and electoral strategy that we really believe will protect and defend reproductive health care and Planned Parenthood in the years ahead.”

Help Pro-life candidates by making phone calls, helping in anyway possible in their campaigning, and sending e-mails or letters to the candidates for Governor and Senate.  The House has been doing their part to defund Planned Parenthood, but the SENATE has refused to act upon it despite the frustration from House lawmakers looking to amp up pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (call, send e-mails and letters to him too).

Make sure to get the word out on your social media sources on where various candidates stand so we can continue to get more pro-life Governors and Senators, who will fight for the sanctity of life. They (Planned Parenthood) are trying to defeat us with money, but that plan didn’t work in 2016 when Clinton out spent President Trump, and it doesn’t have to work in 2018 as long as we become active. Let’s make all the Governors and Senators know that their vote to fund Planned Parenthood will cost them a personal vote on election day!

ALERT Dr. Daniel Grossman Helps Planned Parenthood Administer Telemedicine Chemical Abortion

SEND HIM AN E-MAIL TO SHOW YOUR CONCERNS!

Please share this message with your social media contacts. As Elie Wiesel said,

“We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.
Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”

Dr Daniel Grossman is a lead researcher on studies investigating the safety and accessibility of abortion services. His latest project, Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH), acts as a springboard for increased chemical (medical) abortion delivery by Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Dr. Grossman works as a consultant for the abortion giant, providing guidelines for the implementation of new protocols designed to provide home abortion services using the chemical abortion product RU-486.

RU-486, marketed as simple and safe, is just the opposite. It terminates a pregnancy up to 10 weeks through the use of two drugs. Mifepristone, often called “The Abortion Pill“, is an anti-progestin that blocks the action of progesterone which is necessary to establish and maintain placental and embryo attachment.  Mifepristone is used in conjunction with misoprostol, a prostaglandin analogue, available in the United States under the brand name Cytotec®. Misoprostol, when administered orally or vaginally, stimulates uterine contractions that expel the embryo and placental tissue.
Health risks to mothers taking chemical abortion pills surpass the health risks of surgical abortion. Complications include incomplete abortion with subsequent life threatening bacterial infection, failure to cause the abortion and cause birth defects to the baby, extensive and weeks long hemorrhage, severe pain, nausea, vomiting, damage to the uterus, and toxic shock from the poisonous chemicals. Chemical abortion at home via telemedicine incurs even greater risk, due to the unavailability of pretesting to determine the age of the baby or an ectopic pregnancy, the hazards of off label use – creative and untested treatment instructions, and no follow up care by a medical doctor with hospital privileges. Read more here.
Though clearly indicated in the product insert, Dr. Grossman’s research results deny these risks, magically reflecting his own bias that “medication abortion, like all abortion, is incredibly safe.”The ACLU is now using his flawed research results to sue the FDA , demanding that chemical abortion pills be available by prescription in commercial pharmacies without a physician visit, leaving women to abort on their own.
Dr. Grossman’s role in the legal arguments and implementation guidelines for widespread use of RU-486 are troublesome for many reasons, but especially three:
1) His zealous support and approval of RU-486 belies the sinister origins of the drug and the company that manufactures it. RU-486 is manufactured by Roussel Uclaf, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hoeschst AG, formally IG Farben, that manufactured Zyklon B, the cyanide gas used at Auschwitz. According to Nuremberg Trial documents, Farben manufactured a variety of poison gases and deadly pharmaceuticals that were used in experimentation and extermination of Jews. Read more here.
2) The underpinnings of Jewish ethical business practice prescribe honesty in marketing. We should not sell a product based on false advertising, especially falsely market a dangerous product as safe! Leviticus 9:14, “You shall not curse the deaf nor put a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear your God, I am the Lord” prohibits a Jew from profiting monetarily by intentionally deceiving the consumer, in this case selling a product said to be safe but which is harmful. Dr. Goodman earns a fee from Planned Parenthood for using false information to facilitate the sale of a chemical that harms the consumer.
3) RU-486 causes the death of innocent human lives unable to defend themselves, which invalidates his opinion that abortion is safe! His departure from holiness and conscience casts a pall on all of Judaism.
Dr. Grossman’s email address is Daniel.Grossman@ucsf.edu. Please take a minute to share your concerns with him. His full bio can been read here.
Finally, the already astronomical increase in the use of chemical abortion, the implications for women’s safety from telemedicine abortion, and the threat to many more unborn children because of the ACLU lawsuit can be learned here.

Citizens United Wants Cross & Bibles Removed From Oklahoma University – Immediate Action Needed!

1498833467555

PLEASE TAKE TIME TO SEND A MESSAGE TO THE GOVERNOR TO STOP THIS INSANITY!

Flip-Flop on Church and State

 

East Central University, facing complaint, agrees to remove religious symbols from chapel. But after criticism, institution halts the removal.

 

By Scott Jaschik – July 3, 2017

 

“East Central University — a public institution in Ada, Okla. — has found itself immersed in a fight over separation of church and state.  Last week, after receiving a complaint from Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the university agreed to remove various religious symbols on permanent display in a chapel on campus. But then the university faced strong criticism from politicians and religious leaders in Oklahoma and reversed course. The university has stopped plans to remove the religious symbols, pending a further review of the issues.

 

“While it is legal for a public university to have a space that can be used by students for religious worship so long as that space is not dedicated solely to that purpose, it is a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to display religious iconography on government property,” said the letter from Americans United for Separation of Church and State to the university. “Please remove or cover the religious displays and items.”

 

Specifically, the letter cites the display of a Latin Cross and other crosses that are on permanent display in a way that the letter said “communicate[s] religious endorsement to members of the public by displaying religious items or messages.” The letter cited numerous court decisions about such displays.

Initially, the university said it would respond by removing the crosses. But then religious leaders started to speak out, saying it was fine for a public university to display crosses.

 

Randall Christy, founder of the Gospel Station Network, told The Tulsa World, “It’s time for Christian people to take a stand for our history and heritage. The idea that the cross excludes people is not true — it’s the opposite. The cross represents that all are welcome, that people of all walks of life are loved by God.”

 

On Friday, the university announced it was reversing course.  “We moved too quickly,” said a statement from Katricia Pierson, the university’s president. “We regret not taking time to pause and thoughtfully consider the request and the results of our actions on all of the students, faculty and community members who we serve … This requires a more thoughtful and deliberate approach to the request. That will be our next step.”

 

Via email, Ian Smith, a lawyer for Americans United, said, “The university has said that they will be taking a closer look and thinking about things. That’s fine — we gave them 30 days to respond, and the letter only went out on the 20th. Ultimately, though, we expect that they will make the same decision since the law is definitively on our side.

 

A spokesman for the organization said many public colleges have chapels in which various student religious groups put up crosses and other religious objects during religious services or events. Americans United has no objections to such displays, the spokesman said.”

It is time for patriots to mobilize and fight back. Appeasement is not the answer.

 

First,  contact the university’s president and politely voice your opinion. Second, contact Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter and urge him to fight back against this godless scourge. And finally, the university’s alumni should immediately halt all funding.  If they remove the cross from the chapel – we should remove “In God we Trust” from their bank account.”
