“Contraception” is Murder, a weak, pathetic response to legal murder, is sent out at least once a month. If the gestapo hasn’t jailed you yet for defending the innocent realistically, you either have to tell me you want it or go to the website. Email is free, but snail-mail is free only for the PFCs. Five grand for others.
Because I believe we should examine every legitimate means, including force, in our attempt to protect innocent people from being tortured to death, I want to hear from folks who’ve been forceful and from those who defend them. I’d also like to hear from those who oppose the prolife use of force and call it violence.

Rev. Spitz comments after this Reuters article he called our attention to:
- A man accused of fatally shooting three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic in 2015, who was deemed mentally unfit to stand trial, can be forcibly medicated in an effort to restore him to competency, an appeals court ruled on Thursday.
The Colorado Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's ruling that the state can administer anti-psychotic drugs to Robert Lewis Dear, 59, over his lawyer's objections.
Dear's attorneys could not be reached for comment on whether they will appeal to the state supreme court. They previously have declined to make any statements about the case outside of court.
Dear was charged with multiple counts of murder and dozens of additional crimes stemming from the rampage at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs in November 2015.
The shooting left three dead, including a police officer from a nearby college who responded to the scene. Dear surrendered after a three-hour standoff with police.
In earlier courtroom outbursts, Dear said he was guilty and proclaimed himself "a warrior for the babies," prompting Judge Gilbert Martinez, of Colorado's El Paso County Court, to order a mental evaluation.
Two state-appointed psychologists testified that Dear, a South Carolina native, suffers from a psychotic delusional disorder.
Martinez deemed Dear incompetent to stand trial. He has been held at the state mental hospital in Pueblo, where he has refused medications, court documents showed.
Prosecutors sought court permission to forcibly medicate Dear with Zyprexa, Abilify, Haldol and Cogentin, according to court papers.
Defense lawyers argued that the state failed to meet the legal requirements needed to involuntarily medicate Dear.
After a closed hearing, Judge Jill Mattoon, of Pueblo District Court, ruled that the state had the right to forcibly medicate Dear in an attempt to bring him to trial.
Dear's lawyers appealed her ruling, setting the stage for Thursday's opinion by a three-judge appellate panel.
The appeals court in its ruling noted that a U.S. Supreme Court decision allows the state "to render a criminal defendant competent to stand trial" if certain criteria are met.
"Because the (Supreme Court) test was met, we further conclude that the forced administration of antipsychotic medications to Dear is not an unconstitutional deprivation of his liberty," the judges ruled in their unanimous decision.
Under Colorado's criminal insanity statute, a defendant found unfit to stand trial must have the competency determination reviewed every 90 days.
Can you believe this? They are going to FORCE Robert Dear to take psychotropic medication. I’m sure it will be by injection because Robert will not willingly submit to this invasion of his body.

Want to let you know many are praying for your release from captivity and you are very much cared about by decent Godfearing folk.
and a little riddle to brighten the dark dreary days of captivity.
Why did the blind man give up skydiving?
Answer: Scared the Hell out of the dog
Took me a while to get Tobra’s riddle.
I don’t know who wrote this but it’s spot on:
Earlier this week, fourteen so-called “Catholic” politicians betrayed preborn children and the faith they claim to hold by voting against a bill which would have put a strong restriction on the practice of abortion in this country. They are:
Maria Cantwell - Washington
Susan Collins - Maine
Dick Durbin - Illinois
Kirsten Gillibrand - New York
Heidi Heitkamp - North Dakota
Tim Kaine - Virginia
Patrick Leahy - Vermont
Ed Markey - Massachusetts
Catherine Cortez Masto - Nevada
Claire McCaskill - Missouri
Bob Menendez - New Jersey
Lisa Murkowski - Alaska
Patty Murray - Washington
Jack Reed - Rhode Island
Even Cardinal Dolan, the USCCB’s Pro-Life Chairman, called this betrayal “appalling.”
But as appalling as this is, what is even worse is that the hand-wringing of the bishops in the USCCB won’t go any further than their down-cast eyes, their shaking heads and their rebuking words. Will any of these bishops deny Holy Communion to these Judas politicians, as is required by Canon 915 of the Code of Canon Law? They haven’t done so in the last 40 years, so why should they start now?
The sad fact of the matter is that our bishops today are so focused on the material, they’ve lost sight of the eternal. Many of them falsely believe that denying Holy Communion is a “punishment” for not obeying the rules, but the fact of the matter is that denying Holy Communion to obstinate, grave, manifest sinners is a merciful protection for those politicians. One needs only to read Genesis 3:22-24 to see that the denial of Communion is truly a mercy:
Then the LORD God said: See! The man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil! Now, what if he also reaches out his hand to take fruit from the tree of life, and eats of it and lives forever? The LORD God therefore banished him from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he had been taken. He expelled the man, stationing the cherubim and the fiery revolving sword east of the garden of Eden, to guard the way to the tree of life.
By banishing Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, preventing them from eating the fruit from the Tree of Life, He made sure that salvation was still possible for them. However, had Adam and Eve eaten the fruit from the Tree of Life while in a state of mortal sin, they could not have been redeemed by death and resurrection and would have been confirmed in their sin for all eternity without possibility of salvation.
The Tree of Life in the Garden is a symbol of the Crucifix, where the wood of the cross is the wood of the tree, where the blood of Christ is the sap, and the Flesh of Our Blessed Lord is the Fruit. And just as God denied the fruit of the Tree of Life to our first parents, St. Paul warns against unworthily eating the Body and Blood of Our Lord: “whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of the chalice. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord.”
Canon 915 is in place, not as a punishment, but as a way of protecting those in obstinate grave, manifest sin from committing sacrilege and condemning themselves for all eternity.

JOE BIDEN, OBAMA’S FORMER TOKEN WHITE, VILLAGE IDIOT MAY RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020.
JOE BIDEN, THE ROMAN CATHOLIC, WHO STOOD BY OBAMA, THE BABY KILLER!
GO JOE GO!........I HOPE YOU PICK EITHER HILLARY CLINTON, MICHELLE OBAMA OR NANCY PELOSI AS YOUR RUNNING MATE!
THE FLORIDA PATRIOT!
Dear John, Twenty years after Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court upheld abortion and agreed to look the other way for forced abortion in Planned Parenthood v. Casey. During that 20 years, the Republican party fooled the sheepish conservative masses into thinking that its leaders would appoint Justices to the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. Instead, under the direction of the conservative elite, they did the opposite. For it was at the direction of the conservative elite that conservative leaders like Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Nelson Rockefeller, and George H.W. Bush had pioneered legal abortion, forced abortion, and Planned Parenthood funding starting before Roe v. Wade.
Simply put, the conservative elite do not want poor women to give birth and they know someone has to pay the executioner's fee. This is why Republican leaders started abortion and Planned Parenthood funding and have done nothing but increase its funding ever since. But they fool the sheepish conservative masses by doing what is known in American politics as the "kabuki" dance. The kabuki dance is a political fake-job designed to get the vote of the masses by making promises that the elite do not want them to actually keep. In this case, they say they will appoint Justices to overturn Roe v. Wade and that they will stop federal funding for Planned Parenthood, but they are really doing the opposite. Some math will help to prove the point.
At the time of Casey, when the Supreme Court upheld abortion 20 years after Roe v. Wade (which means Republican leaders had been fooling the sheepish conservative masses with their pro-life "kabuki" dance for 20 years at that point) the Court had nine Members, eight of whom were nominated by Republican presidents, and the remaining one was appointed by a Catholic president. Not only that, but six of the nine Members, seven if counting the elevation of Justice Rehnquist to the position of Chief Justice, were appointed by Republican presidents AFTER Roe v. Wade. Note that a five-to-four majority suffices to win. So even just counting the ones appointed after Roe v. Wade, Republican presidents had appointed enough Justices to ensure a win, and with extra votes to spare even.
And win they did. But it was NOT a win for the sheepish conservative masses who naively thought they had elected pro-life leaders. Instead, it was a win for the conservative elite, who insist on legal abortion, forced abortion, and Planned Parenthood funding to keep the outward appearances of women's pregnancies in check. That is the way the kabuki dance works. Welcome to American politics.
It has always been to the wrongful advantage of the liberal news not to tell the sheepish conservative masses about the kabuki dance that phony pro-life leaders have been pulling this whole time. And the conservative news is controlled by the conservative elite, so they will not tell the public about it either. See for yourself. Here is a list of the Supreme Court Justices at the time abortion was upheld in Casey:
Chief Justice Rehnquist: Nominated as Associate Justice by Republican President Richard Nixon; elevated to Chief Justice (after Roe) by Republican President Ronald Reagan; Justice White: Nominated by Catholic President John F. Kennedy; Justice Blackmun: Nominated by Republican President Richard Nixon; Justice Stevens: Nominated (after Roe) by Republican President Gerald Ford; Justice O'Connor: Nominated (after Roe) by Republican President Ronald Reagan; Justice Scalia: Nominated (after Roe) by Republican President Ronald Reagan; Justice Kennedy: Nominated (after Roe) by Republican President Ronald Reagan; Justice Souter: Nominated (after Roe) by Republican President George H.W. Bush; and, Justice Thomas: Nominated (after Roe) by Republican President George H.W. Bush.
Pro-life politics in America has been a big political fake-job all along. Young people have not had a chance against abortion! Sincerely, Cal

I don’t know who wrote this either but it’s even spotter on:
Christians aren’t hypocritical for supporting Trump. Here’s why:
February 28, 2018 (The Stream) - There's been a firestorm of controversy after evangelical leader Tony Perkins said President Trump gets a "mulligan" for his past sexual indiscretions, as headline after headline reports on this apparently outrageous statement. To quote Perkins directly from his interview with Erin Burnett on CNN, "Yes, evangelicals, conservatives, they gave him a mulligan. They let him have a do-over. They said we'll start afresh with you and we'll give you a second chance."
On the one hand, I can understand the outrage. We evangelicals didn't give Bill Clinton a mulligan. We're certainly not giving Harvey Weinstein a mulligan. And since we claim to be champions of marital fidelity and sexual purity, we could not have picked a worst poster boy for our cause - at least that is what we're told.
As Michael Gerson wrote in The Washington Post, "The Trump evangelicals have lost their gag reflex."
Yes, we evangelicals have made our "political bargain with open eyes."
Trump, Gerson argues, has made profanity an unavoidable part of our political culture. He is in the midst of a gathering corruption scandal that has left close aides under indictment. He tells repeated and obvious lies. He incites ethnic and racial resentment as a political strategy and was caught on tape bragging about sexual assault. Add to this something that could never be said of Nixon: the credible accusation that Trump paid hush money to a porn star to cover up an affair.
And how does Franklin Graham respond to this?
We certainly don't hold him up as the pastor of this nation and he is not. But I appreciate the fact that the president does have a concern for Christian values, he does have a concern to protect Christians whether it's here at home or around the world, and I appreciate the fact that he protects religious liberty and freedom.
For Gerson and others, this is the height of hypocrisy. For them there is no excuse for the fact that, in his words, Trump evangelicals have become "sycophants, cheerleaders and enablers."
From my perspective, to the extent we've minimized Trump's past transgressions or turned him into a modern-day saint, there is some truth to these allegations. We've lost our moral compass.
But that is only one side of the story. And this is what many people find impossible to grasp: We voted for Donald Trump with our eyes wide open and without compromising our faith.
We Know Whom We Voted For
If he did, in fact, have a fling with this porn star (which he denies) and pay to keep her quiet, we would not be surprised. And when he does use profanity (as many other presidents did before him), we are not surprised. And when he's caught in a lie, we are not surprised. Grieved, yes. Surprised, no.
We don't overlook his past transgressions. We don't hail him as the exemplar of marital fidelity. And we don't say to our constituents, "Follow Trump, as he follows Christ" (to echo Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 11:1).
Rather, we say this: Babies are being slaughtered by Planned Parenthood, and this flawed man is willing to help us stop the slaughter. Christians are being massacred by ISIS, and this flawed man is willing to help stop the bloodshed. Our religious liberties are being threatened, and this flawed man is willing to take a stand on our behalf.
So, we appreciate him. We support him in carrying out his campaign promises. And as best as we can, behind closed doors and in other settings, we encourage him to step higher and to take the claims of Jesus seriously.
How is that hypocritical? How is that immoral? How is that compromised?
We weren't impressed when he held up his family Bible during the campaign. And we weren't surprised when he couldn't quote a single verse from memory. We know the man we voted for.
And he knows who he is too, saying in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, “At this moment, I would like to thank the evangelical community because, I will tell you what, the support they have given me - and I'm not sure I totally deserve it - has been so amazing. And has been such a big reason I'm here tonight. They have much to contribute to our policies.”
A political insider even told me that during the campaign, when he asked Trump to take a strong stand on a marriage-related issue, he said, "I can't do that, given my history."
I can't confirm this firsthand (although my source says he heard it for himself). But I can confirm that I've never heard Trump put himself forward as a paragon of marital virtue, which would make sense.
As for giving him a mulligan, that's what you call the gospel. God forgives us, and we forgive others. Especially if they recognize their guilt and seek to make positive changes.
Why Not Grant Trump a Mulligan?
To this very moment, I feel confident that if Bill Clinton came forward and confessed to his past adulteries, taking full responsibility, seeking to make restitution, and asking for forgiveness, we would line up to be the first to forgive publicly. And should he then say, "I've had a change of heart regarding abortion," we would welcome him as a colleague on the front lines of the pro-life movement.
In certain ways, Trump has presented more of a mixed bag. He continues to engage in unchristian behavior while the same time making a clear break with his past. Yet he has consistently welcomed evangelical Christians into his life. He has listened attentively when they have spoken to him. And to my knowledge, he has never rebuffed their calls for him to change.
So, while he remains a work in progress, he continues to champion many important causes. And with all his blemishes, he is our president.
Do we not, then, grant him a mulligan when it comes to his past? And if we were to learn that he committed adultery 50 times in his former life, would this change our view of him today?
To repeat: We voted for him with our eyes wide open (at least, most of us did). And we can support him, with the necessary caveats, without denying or compromising our faith.
What's so scandalous about that?
You might think I’ve forgotten about those two magnificent writings, Eric Rudolph’s White Lies and Jim Kopp’s Autobiography, because they’ve been missing for a while. But be patient.
I emailed this on February 26:
me, My son Brian and I drove seven hours to visit Jim Kopp yesterday. I got in but he didn’t. Brian faxed his first request to be put on Jim’s visitors’ list on the 9th, I believe. That was “shredded” because Mr. Cales said he couldn’t make out one of Jim’s ID numbers - 11761- 055. Hard to believe, right? So Brian faxed another on the 21st. But that didn’t work either, for some reason. I’m going to make a complaint and would appreciate any suggestions.
For three hours Brian drove around Beckley, WV, one of the most depressing places you’ll ever see, and our visit did not start well. First, Jim had been dying to see Brian. Brian’s a Catholic priest and Jim had not seen one in two years. And then there are the cellmates. The past few have been like those guys you occasionally see on the streets shouting to the sky. “My life has never been worse,” Jim said.
But, as always, we were soon talking, laughing, planning. When I leave Jim I can’t wait to get back, but the euphoria soon wears off and I do get there only three or four times a year. Another blow - just before I left, Jim told me he wished they’d executed him when he returned from France. He needs to hear from us.
Rev. Spitz, John, you can ask James to make your son his spiritual advisor of record. This will grant your son expanded access to visit Jim.
Paul Hill and I did this. It opened up a lot of doors for me to visit him. Of course Paul was in a state prison and I know Jim is in a federal prison, so it may not be exactly the same.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "35 young people are executed each day at abortion clinics in Broward County, Florida, which is more than twice as many as the 17 executed there on one day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. This is what happens when kids are taught that respect for younger lives is a choice." -Cal
