Parkland woman shoots teen burglar after warning shot didn’t scare him off, deputies say

NewImageLiberals react: poor teen, needs drug counseling. Bad woman, having a gun to protect herself! She should have just called the police.  

PARKLAND, Wash. – After being awakened by her barking dogs, a Parkland woman shot an intruder in her home early Saturday, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

The 16-year-old suspect suffered a significant gunshot wound and was taken to an area hospital, the Sheriff’s Department announced in a Facebook post Monday afternoon. He will be booked into Remann Hall on suspicion of residential burglary once he is released from the hospital.

According to the department:

The woman, who is in her 60s, was alone, asleep at her home in the 1000 block of 118th Street South about 3:15 a.m. Saturday. Her husband was on a business trip and out of town.

Her dogs started barking, and it woke her up. She heard a scratching sound, so she got up and looked out her bedroom door to see a man in her home. The man started walking toward her room, so she armed herself with a handgun and warned him to stop.

He kept moving toward her.

She fired a warning shot. No matter. He kept moving toward her.

She fired another shot, hitting the man in the arm. The woman held the manat gunpoint as she called 911, and he ended up falling to the floor in front of the front door, repeatedly yelling, “I’m so high!”

Deputies climbed the woman’s 8-foot-high back fence and the woman opened the back door to let them in. They found the 16-year-old, screaming in pain, lying in front of the front door with a serious gunshot wound.

A pair of tourniquets were applied until medics could arrive.

Deputies found one of the front bedroom windows was open, which was likely how the teen entered the home, and they found a bullet hole through one of the home’s windows from the warning shot.

The teen was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Trump: U.S. ‘will not be a migrant camp’

He doesn’t want to turn the US into migrant slums like Europe is experiencing. 

An unapologetic President Donald Trump defended his administration’s border-protection policies Monday in the face of rising national outrage over the forced separation of migrant children from their parents. Calling for tough action against illegal immigration, Trump declared the U.S. “will not be a migrant camp” on his watch.

Images of children held in fenced cages fueled a growing chorus of condemnation from both political parties, four former first ladies and national evangelical leaders. The children are being held separately from parents who are being prosecuted under the administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy for illegal border crossings.

White House Looks to Use Executive Action to Crack Down on Illegal Immigrants

I wish that Executive Orders didn’t even exist, at least not as they are practiced now. 

Previously, an Executive Order was simply an instruction by the President to his cabinet on following the congressional laws. 

Now, these are laws that are passed by the Executive Branch. And they are deemed legal as long as they are not unconstitutional. 

The US Constitution, however, only calls for the Executive Branch to faithfully execute the law (as Congress writes them). See Article 2, Section 3, Clause 5 of the US Constitution. Find anywhere in there that the president has the right to write law, even if it is deemed constitutional. 

The president should only need to remind his cabinet to follow the law as congress has written it. If congress doesn’t like it, they need to change it.

Letter: Support Planned Parenthood?

NewImageThis letter ran in today’s Moscow-Pullman Daily News from Roz Luther of Spokane: 

I recently read an interesting fact: “In 1964, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman became honorary chairmen of Planned Parenthood.” In 1968, President Richard Nixon called population growth “one of the most serious challenges to human destiny in the last third of this century.” That is two Republicans and one Democrat who recognized the great value of national Planned Parenthood chapters.

Formed in 1916 in New York, this organization has served lower income girls and women who have fewer insurance options, and has helped them be able to space children and plan their families.

Why was it formed in 1916 in NYC in black neighborhoods? Her racism and eugenics, both of which are undeniable. 

If there’s any doubt, read (and defend) her 1921 article The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda

Combine that with her statement “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members” and you have the picture of an organization founded on terminating as many black babies as they can. 

And they have been quite successful. 

In the United States, the abortion rate for Black women is almost 4 times that of White women. On average, 900 Black babies are aborted every day in the United States. This tragedy continues to impact the population levels of African-Americans in the United States.

National Statistics: 

More than 19 million Black babies have been aborted since the 1973 Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision legalized abortion in our country.

Black women have a significantly higher abortion rate than Whites and Hispanics.

36.0% of all abortions in the U.S. in 2014 were performed on Black women, however, only about 13.3% of the total population is Black

African-Americans are no longer the nation’s largest minority group. Today, Hispanics have outpaced Blacks in population growth.

For every 1,000 live births, non-Hispanic Black women had 391 abortions. Non-Hispanic White women had 120 abortions/1,000 live births

Roz Luther of Spokane finishes his letter to the editor with the following: 

The bipartisan support of these presidents should be a continuing theme through the years, but I fear the Republicans have them rolling over in their graves with their efforts to defund this fine organization.

Spokane

Yes, such a fine organization.

DHS Secy: Trump Administration Did Not Create Policy That Separates Families

I got to watch part of this news brief online. 

Trump is playing hardball — I’m going to follow the law, even if you don’t like it. If you don’t like it, change it (Congress). 

What the Democrats need to do is to show that they are wrong: that the law does not require the administration to do what it is required to do.

Kovalik asserts that the “true patriots” of Venezuela “resent” the “devastating economic sanctions” imposed by the U.S., claiming that a vote for current socialist President Nicolás Maduro “was a vote against U.S. meddling” in the country’s affairs.

Bret Weinstein warned Members of Congress last week that Evergreen State College is merely the most visible example of the despotic “cult” of social justice on college campuses.

Weinstein began histestimonyto the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform by alluding to the one-year anniversary of a protest at which 50 Evergreen students, whom he said he “had never met,” disrupted his class to accuse him of racism and demand his resignation.

The protests were originally sparked by the professor’s criticism of an annual “Day of Absence,” an event that asked white students and faculty to vacate the campus for a day of diversity programming.

Liberal speakers outnumbered conservatives 11-1 at Indiana U

They well represent the percentage of liberal professors and administrators on campus. 

Liberal speakers outnumbered conservatives 11-1 at Indiana U

A Campus Reform analysis reveals that Indiana University, Bloomington (IUB) hosted just four conservative speakers during the 2016-17 academic year. Overall, IUB’s official calendar includes 117 events featuring speakers who either addressed controversial/political topics or are known for their political activity, about one-third of which could be categorized as left-of-center.

Profs deride ‘weight loss’ as a ‘Western value’

Because so many Americans are skinny. 

And so many non-Americans are fat. 

Brilliant. 

Profs deride ‘weight loss’ as a ‘Western value’

Two professors argue in a newly published anthology on “feminist nutrition” that “athletic performance” and “longevity” are simply “Western values.” ” Critical Nutrition: Critical and Feminist Perspectives on Bodily Nutrition”-one of 16 chapters in the book Food & Place: A Critical Exploration-was written by Temple University professor Allison Hayes-Conroy and her sister, Jessica Hayes-Conroy, who teaches a “Feminist Health” class at a small college in Upstate New York.

Table of the Day: Bachelor’s degrees for the Class of 2016 by field and gender. Oh, and the overall 25.6% degree gap for men!

Summary: 

  1. Overall, women earned 57.34% of all bachelor’s degrees in 2016
  2. Women now have an uninterrupted 35-year record of earning the majority of bachelor’s degrees in the US that started back in 1982
  3. Female share of computer science degrees (nearly 19%) in 2016 was about the same as the female share of Google’s tech jobs  in that year (20.6%). And the female share of Google’s not-tech jobs (54%) is just slightly higher than the female share of business bachelor’s degrees (47%)

Does it make sense to say that women should have 50% of all the computer programing jobs when they only have 21% of all the CS degrees?

AEI posts the data. MJP makes the following observations: 

The table above shows the number of bachelor’s degrees by major field of study and gender for the College Class of 2016, ranked by the female share of each field (based on recently released Department of Education data here). A few observations:

1. Overall, women earned 57.34% of all bachelor’s degrees in 2016, which means there were 134 women graduating from college that year for every 100 men. It also reflects a whopping 25.6% gender college degree gap for men, who earned only 816,912 bachelor’s degrees in 2016 compared to 1,098,173 degrees earned women.

2. Although data are not yet available for bachelor’s degrees by field and gender in 2017, the Department of Education reported last month that women earned 57.3% of all bachelor’s degrees last year, so women now have an uninterrupted 35-year record of earning the majority of bachelor’s degrees in the US that started back in 1982. The Class of 2017 was also noteworthy for being the 18th straight college class that had more than 57% female representation for earning bachelor’s degrees – a milestone first reached by the Class of 2000.

3. Women earned nearly 60% of degrees in biology in 2016, which is one of the fields in the STEM area that we hear so much about in terms of female under-representation. And actually, if you include health professions as a STEM field, women earned more STEM degrees in 2016 (318,714) than men (265,000) for degrees in the seven STEM fields above marked with an asterisk (*). Or if you count just biology, mathematics, and physical sciences (e.g., chemistry, physics, etc.) women earn a majority (53%) of those of those STEM degrees. It’s really only when you include engineering and computer science that men have an overall majority of STEM degrees.

4. Now that Google has been in the media spotlight since former Google engineer James Damore’s July 2017 diversity memo, it’s interesting to note that the female share of computer science degrees (nearly 19%) in 2016 was about the same as the female share of Google’s tech jobs  in that year (20.6%). And the female share of Google’s not-tech jobs (54%) is just slightly higher than the female share of business bachelor’s degrees (47%), assuming that a business degree might be the most common college degree required for those positions (marketing, sales, accounting, human resources, finance, etc.).

5. Note the wide variation in degrees by gender shares. Women earn the large majority of degrees in health professions, psychology, education, English and communication, and men earn the large majority of degrees in engineering, computer science, and theology.

Watch: Morano on Fox debunking new Antarctic ice melt scare & explaining how ‘global warming’ will solve alleged overpopulation problem

Morano on Fox – Varney & Co. – June 15, 2018

Morano: In my new book, ‘The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change’, I go back and show that in 1901, 1922, 1979 and 2014, 2018 that they’ve come up with Antarctic melt scenarios over and over. I also point out that in 2015, a NASA study showed Antarctica was gaining it and actually contributing to a sea level lowering. This new study which, by the way, it used observational data but to enhance that they used models, climate models —  not even actual data — they simulated what they thought the actual ice conditions were and it gives them a huge fudge factor.

Question about: Berkeley declares ‘climate emergency’ worse than World War II, demands ‘humane’ population control

Morano: In my book, I go back to the 1960s and I show no matter the environmental scare, famines, scares, all sorts of calamities, they always had same solutions no matter the scare. They always wanted central power, redistribution of wealth and global governance. Now the Berkeley city council is following that same line — even though the new projections of population show a decline in population as we go forward into the 21st century. More importantly, their own governor — Jerry Brown —  has said global warming will kill 3 billion people. (See: OVERPOPULATION SOLVED! Gov. Jerry Brown Claims in 2018: 3 Billion+ Will Die from ‘Global Warming’) Now here’s the problem. The Berkely California city council is worried that overpopulation will lead to global warming — but their own governor is saying that global warming is going to kill 3 billion people. Problem solved Stuart! Global warming will kill the excess population. 

Varney: (laughing) Ohhh. Oh, we gotcha. 

Morano: There you go! We just solved it!

Varney: (Laughing) Alright Marc, we did hear you. Marc Morano everybody. Thanks for joining us, sir. We will see you again soon.

NASA researcher: Antarctica still GAINING ice

If global warming caused less ice in West Antarctica, how did it cause more ice in Eastern Antarctica?

Upcoming Research Will Buck The ‘Consensus’ And Show Antarctica Is Still Gaining Ice

Michael Bastasch | Contributor Is Antarctica melting or is it gaining ice? A recent paper claims Antarctica’s net ice loss has dramatically increased in recent years, but forthcoming research will challenge that claim. NASA glaciologist Jay Zwally first challenged the “consensus” on Antarctica in 2015 when he published a paper showing ice sheet growth in eastern Antarctica outweighed the losses in the western ice sheet.
