TheBlaze’s Tomi Laren appeared on ‘The View’ Friday, where she revealed that despite being one of conservative media’s biggest stars, she is actually pro-choice.
This led many to wonder whether her employment was in jeopardy, as Glenn Beck, who owns TheBlaze, is staunchly pro-life.
However, Monday morning on The Glenn Beck Radio Program, Beck explained why he hired Tomi when they disagree on this polarizing issue, and offered his counter-argument on abortion.
“I don’t hire people that are sycophants or who have my opinion,” he said. “I try to hire people who have a different opinion because I believe in being intellectually rigorous.”
“I don’t want straw men. I want people to make a real argument on the other side so we can learn from each other and we can grow.”
It looks like Tomi Lahren keeps her job for another day…
California To Pay Gang Members $1000 a Month to Stop Killing! Cost: $1.5 Million
California has lost its mind! Sacramento has just passed an ordinance that pays known gang members a $1000 a month stipend to ‘remain peaceful’ and not kill people!
The world has lost sight of the word ramifications! Appeasement never works, it only feeds the beast!
So in 10 years, they will have 10 times the number of ‘gang members’ waiting in line in California to get their check!
The city of Sacramento, California, is setting aside $1.5 million dollars of taxpayers money to pay gang members to stop killing people.
The city council unanimously approved the “Advance Peace” program in an attempt to address their ongoing problem with violent crime, according to Fox News.
The program pays gang members to graduate school and stop shooting at people. If a gang member wants to start killing people, they’ll be forfeiting their taxpayer-funded payday.
The vote had been scheduled to take place in two weeks, but Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg requested that the vote be moved up after five people were shot in a park.
“Five people were shot in Meadowview on Sunday,” Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said, according to Fox 40. “Let’s get going on doing everything we can to save innocent lives.”
The funding for the payments to the criminal gang members will come from the city’s general fund. The money will go to 50 men who are suspected of killing people, but there’s not enough evidence to prosecute them.
“Fifty is a huge number. That’s 50 shooters who have the possibility of taking a life,” Nicole Clavo said according to KCRA. “If we can reach those 50, how many lives have we changed?”
The Advance Peace program started in Richmond, CA and has been credited by some with reducing murders in the city; Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert disagrees.
They cannot get them, because California has become a sanctuary state!
A California Department of Justice study reported in 1995 that 60 percent of the 20,000-strong 18th Street Gang in southern California is illegal. That was the last stats, for obvious reasons, and that was almost 25 years ago.
Appeasement is defined as yielding or conceding “to the belligerent demands of (a nation, group, person, etc.) in a conciliatory effort, sometimes at the expense of justice or other principles.” Appeasement basically says, “If you don’t hurt me, I’ll do something nice for you.”
It is now, and has been, accepted since Adolf Hitler invaded Poland in 1939 that appeasement of sworn enemies and bullies doesn’t work. They interpret it as a sure sign of weakness and vulnerability. It makes them swaggeringly surer of their strength and others’ weakness and vulnerability. In this case, their is an incredible incentive to continue! $$$
The invariable result is they become more aggressive and dangerous. That’s what the letter “We can’t appease these sworn enemies” correctly proves in citing the historic Neville Chamberlain/Adolph Hitler Munich Agreement appeasement, ultimately catastrophically failed, attempt. If Hitler had been defied instead of placated, he could and would have been stopped in his tracks, contained in Germany’s borders.
When I lived on the small Caribbean Island of Trinidad, they were dealing with a severe amount of kidnappings. They were paying. As they paid, the kidnappings multiplied.
If you use appeasement while raising children, it always backfires! You will end up with children committing the offense in order to get the appeasement. It is like Pavlov’s Dogs!
An appeased child will test and push until the boundaries shift again. And again. And again. This teaches the child that he can manipulate, act out, or otherwise behave in an immature fashion until he is bribed to behave.
Appeasement has never worked in the long run. Oh sure, it’s often a quick easy fix for short-term difficulties; but anyone knows that it’s a rotten strategy for long-term stability or character development. The problem is, appeasement continually shifts boundaries.
I am absolutely astounded at this latest moronic move by California!
ObamaCare Threw This Burn Victim Out Of The Hospital After 3 Days!
The Federal Government cannot micromanage and nowhere is that made clearer than with ObamaCare.
Recently, John, a Floridian man visiting Tennessee was burned over 60% of his body. After 3 days he was sent home and without pain medication. Vanderbilt Hospital has since picked up the slack, but this story will horrify you!
If it happens to him, it can happen to anyone.
The man’s sister took to social media to plead for help after exhausting all other avenues. As of this writing the post had almost 10,000 shares and it is stated that Vanderbilt has stepped up to the plate and is now giving her brother the help he needs.
It should not take Facebook to get a burn victim the help he needs and before ObamaCare this would not have happened!
John’s sister posted on June 28th:
What’s worse then having 60% of your body burned from a fire? I’ll tell you…. Being forced from hospital because you have no insurance and released with zero pain meds.
Does anyone have any contacts with newscasters, tv stations, or anyone of importance that can help my brother????
My brother was burned over 60% of his body in Nashville 5 days ago. Because he has no Insurance and ObamaCare doesn’t really actually work, he was released, forced out of hospital, after 3 days and no pain meds. He is in excruciating pain and needs pain meds. Should be re-admitted. He is in Nashville. Please give feedback. Any at all will help. Thinking if a tv station did a story about him, he’d get re-admitted. He was released from Vanderbilt burn center….. After only 3 days! He has been sitting in lobby for 2 hrs this morning asking for pain meds but has been ignored. I am now on a mission to help.
After a LOT of shares via social media, on the 30th Jana commented:
Some good news today after our let down yesterday. Vanderbilt burn center called my brother and asked him to come in. They cleaned the burns/wounds and re-bandaged him and had him there for hours. They also gave him a script for a weeks worth of a strong pain killer to match the pain he is in!
On July 1st, she also commented:
Vanderbilt interventional pain clinic has accepted my brother into their program to treat him and he is now getting exceptional treatment from them. Thank you Vanderbilt for stepping up! All the posts and shares have worked and helped! So grateful that spreading the word has brought him the care he needed and deserved!
This whole mess would have been solved if we did not have the federal government messing around where they do not belong. We have watched the quality of healthcare deteriorate for years now under ObamaCare and the prices go up!
Just let the Doctors be Doctors. The ObamaCare horror stories are rampant and the warnings were made before!
