Mike Pence Will Be the Most Powerful Christian Supremacist in U.S. History

Mike Pence Will Be the Most Powerful Christian Supremacist in U.S. History | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Mike Pence’s ascent to the second most powerful position in the U.S. government is a tremendous coup for the radical religious right.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
The article indicates Pence as a Christian leader in Politics. Throwing all Christians into this mix is part of the problem that helped elect Trump and awarded the position to Pence. The article seems to be wishing to out Pence as a danger to Democrats, secularist, gays and those that support a women's right to choose (I know very few people that support abortion in as much as very few that support divorce, infidelity, lying, heart disease that comes from poor life choices, collateral damage in the form of innocent people murdered during war by honorable soldiers and so on....) These are also ugly choices people felt they had to make.... some may have regrets and would have done it different with a better knowledge or situation....But most these people feel at the time the choice was being made they did the best they could under the circumstances. 

The idea women choose abortion as a type of birth control and are simply choosing to pick the time they have a child is a foolish myth... Rare is the women doesn't realizes that children don't fall out of trees just because you wish them and that refusing any pregnancy means they maybe refusing the only pregnancy/child they might ever have. Abortion is a health risk, just like giving birth is a risk even under the best of circumstances. It always up to the women which risk she will take and it always has been whether abortion is legal or not.

 The Pence idea that God allowed one woman to get pregnant to bless another woman God himself chose to leave barren is a bit of a stretch.... Most pregnant women making choices to have or not to have a child find adoption to some unknown family a pathetic option or reason to carry a child. All those women carry the child because they love the child and want a way to keep it if they choose to carry it and deliver the child. The Pence gang stupidly thinks a woman gives up a child because it is unwanted. That hardly ever happens that a woman doesn't want her child. It is more likely Pence types convinced her she wasn't worthy of the child God allowed her and only people like him and his gang can override God's choice of her as the mother and find a better one. Adoption is only the "best" answer for mothers that died or deliberately left children. It is the worst answer for both the child and the mom if adoption occurs because society has not allowed any better options or ways for mom's to raise their own babies to thrive without serious struggle and disadvantage...which is exactly the harsh, uncaring society Pence's ALEC agenda sets in place ever more firmly. 

 The article fails to point out that many Christians are on the opposite side of people like Pence because of their strong Christian values. They feel God himself allows personal choice and man has no right to strip a person of too much personal choice other than keeping laws we agree to keep. They feel People like Pence create more need for unnecessary abortions and creates a one-sided, unjust society that leans to benefit the wealthy and powerful at the expense of all others. Far more people  prefer other options to abortions and I don't mean giving the baby to someone like Pence because God didn't make him able to have a baby of his own. I mean options like agreements or even laws that you won't be fired from your job, perhaps support with first year by allowances for part time work during the first year or paid time at home for more parents as other developed nations provide, healthcare for the whole family that won't cost them their home, childcare they can trust, time allowed off from work to attend school functions and other family related important matters. I know people that have lost nearly completed degrees, jobs and reputations for selecting to stay home with sick children or have children out of wedlock, soldiers careers ruin for electing to leave the field with permission to be with a wife after a miscarriage (or natural abortion) some call it.... and forget any soldier that needs to attend to a family event at the wrong time... The family time for both soldier and career tract people is nearly always wrong for family events in a world where success is measured by your wallet and power. 


Lining the pockets of the rich with his ALEC agenda hurts far more Moms that need to choose to have a child or not and leans them to the "not" side far more often. It is an agenda that sets up a society for average people that says we live to work and make money for the rich and not work to live. It is a perverse version of Ayn Rand's horrid selfish morality that gives all the liberty to the rich "Makers" and strips all personal liberty from anyone not like minded how to live their life. Abortion is an ugly thing and I think it is fit that we can agree on that. There is a living being in that mother's body.... Abortion is performed normally to cease the life of that being for various reasons. It should never be a choice taken without realizing that. Some times abortion is needed because that life has already ceased within the mother. Having your finger cut off and getting it sewn back on is an ugly thing. A young soldier shooting or policeman making a call to shoot someone is an ugly thing especially if it turns out that person was not the threat they thought. But when that happens most say they would make the same choice again under the same situation. This how most women I know think about their abortion. Under the circumstances they had to make their choice it was the best one they could make at that time. Most have regrets...just like the young soldier that chooses to shoot the mother of 6 and the child of 9 in a war zone.... not realizing that they did not pose the threat that was feared until it was too late. Until Pence can stop a young soldier from having to make that ugly choice he has not designed a world that should force a woman to have a carry a child into that world.... 

When Pence ends war, which has killed more innocent children through men’s hands then Mom’s choices, then he will have a leg to stand on and a society that is truly pro-life. Taking power by peddling hate for those that select abortion as a choice for women and doctors to make and promoting hating gay people is a cheap bate and switch that has been used for 40 years to win votes while these same people undermine far more choices that must be made daily for the average working person and family.


 Few families deal with abortion at all or only once or twice at most.... But all families deal minute by minute with how to feed, clothe, house and keep healthy all those that were born into their life everyday and for many in this country and around the world that is a constant struggle that creates constant stress as well as danger. Divorce and infidelity is far more a threat that breaks down of traditional Christian families than Gay people will ever be.... Should the Pence and his followers make those things illegal too? 

 If you don't know what ALEC is ... Do your homework and search "ALEC exposed". ALEC and the other groups like them just won the elections across the nation all the way to the white house. So get to know your masters.... If you don't like them and what they have in mind for you then stand up against that plan and stand strong! There are many groups acting to counter the influence of these behind the scene game masters...Awareness of how to recognize their plays and their pawns is critical to countering their influence over our lives. Hint; The news won't be telling you...not even Bernie dared mention the group ALEC.... Such is their influence. 

This article does not mention ALEC, but without that group and others like that supporting Pence and his other ALEC agenda pawns, Pence and others will not and cannot move forward. When I had my ears pierced the girl pinched one ear so tight with a clothes pin so that I would focus on that instead of the ear she jabbed the sewing needle through...That is what Pence and the other so called alt-right Christians in politics purpose is for ALEC. They are the clothespin that has many of us hating gays and worried women will easily choose abortion.... While they set up a hateful power agenda that is not Christian at all and gives honor, control and nearly all gains of labor and natural / "God given" resources to the selfish and the ruthless. That is what brought Trump and Pence to power and that is the battle both the Alt-right Christians and the Alt-Left Christians need to unit against.... 

True Christian love filling a society will save babies and prevent many, even most abortions.... You may even have fewer people seek alternative sexual relations if we place true love back into heterosexual traditional families..... Gay isn't and never was the only alternative..... bi-sexual, swinging and infidelity, multiple wives...(maybe someday husbands) have been always around.... if Christians or others really want to promote traditional one woman for one man marriage and sexual relationship, they best do that by showing it works and love can be sustained and beneficial to all in that family over a lifetime.

 ALEC and those like them see Trump as a opportunity, they have guided many of their choices into his administration along with a few of his own selected nuts that they know have and will keep people hostile and blinded. Pence ALEC agenda folks firmly hold him as a King pin in their game and many others as pawns too. The democrat elite did help elect Trump, the author of this article is correct. That was made certain by holding back Bernie and not giving others that ran serious support as alternatives and by failing to promote the message Lawrence Lessig would have brought into the front as the real one that needed our attention if we want to continue to have a real voice in shaping our own destiny.. 

 The article seems to want to create fear and hate for alt-right Christians... rather a wiser move which would be to enlighten the misused, Alt-right Christians to the real agenda behind their manipulation at the hands mainly, but not solely the GOP and then to unify them with the Alt-left Christians to promote the love Christianity seeks to bestow for God's creatures and creations.... Most secular humanist may call this Mother Nature protected and making love not war...but could certainly unit to strengthen family, community and value people and natural resources as a common shared treasury across time.... Ayn Rand atheist nor the extreme free-market capitalist of the political right wing would not support this idea and not unite but to fight it as they have. With the last election the ALEC types gained a huge win as they "Took America"...."Back" to move forward with their selfish plans.... Make no mistake, those that will counter this have not gone away and will not stand down so if you really like your freedom and your own voice in your destiny stand united against the corporate ALEC version of the selfish morality of Ayn Rand. 

 This was written in response to this article, which offered a valid argument to the selection of Pence as VP:

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This is an amazing speech that most women in this nation and increasingly around the world agree with the content and insight she shares at this event. A nagging voice in me said I found Bill Clinton nearly as offensive in his conduct though all his known encounters were consensual they were inappropriate and untrustworthy as a leader of our nation and I assume as a husband and father as well. Trump however felt entitled to bully women because he was rich and required no consent to force his will. Frankly, when you think about it Trump sounds as if assumed these and all women whores and he could likely only "get them" because the creepo could afford to pay a lot in money or services.

I just heard Goldman Sachs was up 23 points of the 35 point bounce in the DOW! Did everyone out there feel that bounce! The wealthier you are the bigger the bounce. All you had to do for your hard earned money was to sit back and read about it in the news! How good can it get? Isn't passive and portfolio income great! Caterpillar is up too! Get in line for the job fairs at these sites they are job creators you know! WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GIVE RICH CORPORATIONS MORE GAINS DEREGULATION AND TAX BREAKS ACCORDING TO THE GOP CONGRESS AND TRUMP? CORPORATION CREATE JOBS WHEN YOU GIVE THEM MORE MONEY! This huge bounce is just from speculation of the deals, deregulation, tax breaks, environmental protection roll backs and more gifts the Republicans  are excepted to deliver to their backers....or rather those that the GOP back.

Sadly this article addresses the single largest failure of Obama's time in the White house. Trump needs to heed the lesson of when Obama trusted Russia to deal with something and Russia's absolute betrayal of that trust and how Russia used that open door to support genocide in Syria.Obama did many things that helped the average guy and worker in the US and even other places....but he dropped the ball on this critical point about Syria. My only other major beef with Obama is that he also seem to be too much in support of the charter school movement...not nearly as strongly as the GOP but still far too strong to suit me.

Defense Business Board - Wikipedia

Defense Business Board - Wikipedia

The Defense Business Board was established in 2001 as a complement to broader transformation efforts in the Department of Defense from an overly burdensome bureaucracy to a more streamlined, effective organization. The Board consists of approximately twenty private sector executives with a vast range of experiences in business management.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Set up by Bush Jr... private sector businessmen advise the military as to how to streamline and cut cost from the military complex industry and our military ... what better way to cut retirement cost then to do away with costly pensions and place the money instead into the businesses of their corporate pals as 401k ... this means that military pay should also be raised to reflect the long term risk and loss of pensions as well to cover any other cost cutting on the backs of service men and women. If we are collectively owning their businesses than we need to have a increasing collective governance over the industries we own.... right now these corporations have all our retirements and we have absolutely no voice over the running of the companies we own... let's call it openly as it is... regular investors cN pull out at any age 401 investors face huge penalties and losses if they decide to move money out when things go south or get risky.
