Random links of interest, concern or curiosity from the past week or so, that deserve at least a SHORT mention:

 

LGBT cartoon targets young boys, promotes gay relationships to children ~ Pushing “gay” on young, insecure children who are really just longing for acceptance ~

In a Heartbeat is getting a whole lot of attention but will do a disservice to those it aims to help. It will further undermine strong, healthy — extraordinarily necessary — male adolescent relationships. Once boys and adolescents are herded toward gayness in order to deal with the very common experience of social anxiety, directed to question their sexual orientation, their sexuality risks becoming ‘re-wired.’ And once ‘re-wired’ in that way, it’s hard to undo. I should know. I was one of them. […]
Let’s be clear: Shy boys at that age aren’t searching for romance with their same-sex peers. They want just one thing and they want it desperately: acceptance. At that age, acceptance is more valuable than gold.

An honest and enlightening article from a former homosexual.
 
Moviegoers getting fed up with all the f****** cursing ~ Lord knows I am ~

Scriptwriters typically intend bad words to emphasize a character’s emotional intensity, as do lazy speakers in private conversations. But those words have really become so common they strike many as mere verbal crutches for bad actors and a sign of their weak f****** vocabularies.

 
Drug Cartels Fuming at New U.S. Policy Screening 100% of Mexican Cargo Trucks ~ Excellent! In a refreshing reversal of Obama’s open-borders policy, the Trump administration is actually telling border security to do their jobs ~

(Customs officers, who are now allowed) to screen all cargo trucks entering the U.S. from Mexico and sources on both sides of the border tell Judicial Watch Mexican drug cartels are fuming. U.S. Customs and Border Protection is using X-ray technology and other non-intrusive tools to screen 100% of cargo trucks crossing the southern border after eight years of sporadic or random screening permitted under the Obama administration.

 
No, Jeff Flake, YOU are how we got Trump ~ Sen. Flake, like his fellow Arizona senator, is a giant RINO. He sounded promising early on in his career but quickly evolved into just another swamp creature. In this piece at Conservative Review, Daniel Horowitz captures the essence of how totally fed up we conservatives are with the entire GOP establishment ~

Jeff Flake is the poster child for the frustrating dynamic many of us have been confronted with in the past two years — the false choice between the status-quo failed GOP establishment and Trump. For those who were seeking a true American revolution built upon the timeless principles laid out in the original “Conscience of a Conservative,” written by Barry Goldwater, the debate over Trump has been a distraction. Most traditional conservatives are neither for nor against Trump; we are for the same agenda we have always supported, always seeking innovative strategies and tactics to promote timeless ideas. This distraction has been allowed to consume Republican politics because the voters got fed up with people like Jeff Flake.

 
Al Gore’s Home Devours 34 Times More Electricity Than Average U.S. Household ~ Just a few inconvenient facts for the climate change crusader ~

Gore’s hypocritical home energy use and “do as I say not as I do” lifestyle has plunged to embarrassing new depths.
 
In just this past year, Gore burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research. The former vice president consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool and driveway entry gate electricity meters. A typical family uses an average of 10,812 kWh of electricity per year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
 
It gets worse.
 
Last September alone, Gore devoured 30,993 kWh of electricity. That’s enough to power 34 average American homes for a month. Over the last 12 months, Gore used more electricity just heating his outdoor swimming pool than six typical homes use in a year.

NYC Cops: We Can’t Arrest Nude Illegal Alien Panhandlers ~ Good grief! De Blasio’s got to go. Bring back Rudy! ~

A word of caution for folks planning a family-friendly vacation to New York City — we’ve been overrun by a horde of naked street performers.
The New York Post reports topless females and filthy costumed characters have turned Times Square into a haven for seedy shakedown artists.

 
Fallout From Venezuela’s Sham Elections ~ Maduro has been running the tyrant’s playbook step by step, complete with bogus elections to solidify his power ~

History offers many examples indicating things will likely get worse in Venezuela before they get better. The real lessons of what has happened there should not be lost on the American people. Venezuela is an oil-rich country with some of the most fertile land in South America, and yet people are starving to death and the economy is a complete shambles. Why? Because the state controls everything. It promised to give the people everything they needed and wanted. Instead, it took everything they had. Yet one more example of the “virtues” of socialism.

 
Gov. Greg Abbott: How George Soros is helping Obama Democrats buy their way back to power ~ Deceitful progressives have their evil sights set on Texas ~

With the help of hedge fund billionaire George Soros, the National Democratic Redistricting Committee hopes to wrest control from voters of congressional re-districting in 2021 when booming conservative states such as Texas will gain seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. All for the benefit of their special-interest donors.[…]
 
Headed by former Attorney General Eric Holder, the tax-exempt 527 political action committee plans a three-pronged attack to flood state-level races with outside money, to leverage activist courts to wrest control of state redistricting plans, and finally, with the formidable community organizing prowess of former President Barack Obama, to fund astroturfed ballot initiatives in the guise of “fairness.”

 
In Obamacare Debate, Some Victims Matter More Than Others ~ From Mary Katharine Ham at The Federalist. Just like the “climate change” scam, the ACA is yet another example where progressives have to manipulate the data to dupe the masses into falling for their destructive policies.
 
GOP donor sues party for fraud over Obamacare repeal ~ This doesn’t have a chance of succeeding, but I sure wish it did! ~

A retired attorney in Virginia Beach is so incensed that Republicans couldn’t repeal the Affordable Care Act that he’s suing to get political donations back, accusing the GOP of fraud and racketeering.

 
Thousands Visit Free Clinics In Barns And Fields: ‘We’re The Middle Class, And We’re Here‘ ~ More fallout from Obamacare. Sad :( (I actually cried to realize it’s come to this for some folks), but ultimately encouraging to see the American spirit of charity, innovation and perseverance still alive.
