CA Assemblywoman Cervantes Refuses To Defend Intrusion Into Doctor Patient Relationship

April 24, 2018 - San Francisco - CA - California Right To Life News - We recently became aware of a piece of proposed California legislation, AB 2943 , that could tremendously expand the scope of the state’s already considerable interference in the doctor-patient relationship.

Already the bright lights in the Democrat controlled CA Legislature have made it actionable [under a bizarre construction of “consumer protection”] for a mental health professional to even suggest to a minor patient who is troubled about same-sex attraction to seek some form of ameliorative therapy.

But now AB2943 will threaten medical personnnel with potential revocation of their license to practice if they offer this kind of kind of advise not only to minors but to any adult residing in the state, even if they desperately want to explore alternative options for dealing with same sex attractions.

Concerned about the negative ramifications of this bill, we contacted the office of Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes [D-Corona] one of the legislation’s primary sponsors to that effect, in this case addressing the inquiry to Ms. Cervantes media attaché Paco Torres:

“Mr. Torres

Would like to discuss AB 2943, especially as it relates to the wisdom/lack thereof of the state telling physicians how to practice. The question I would raise is pretty simple, is this bill actually intended to aid people who may be uncomfortable with their sexuality, or is it merely servicing a particularly loud minority within the gay/lesbian community - as u know the lesbian/gay community is not monolithic.

“Evidence across various research studies has shown individuals who express same sex attractions have significantly higher rates of suicide than individuals who strictly express opposite sex attraction...” https://cola.unh.edu/sites/cola.unh.edu/files/student-journals/P12_Schaaff.pdf

Since this is a deeply personal matter, it would seem that the less interference placed between a troubled patient and their psychiatrist the better. The other question that occurs to me is what if for instance, a person w same sex attraction is deeply troubled about it and wants to explore possible behavior modification, why wouldn’t that be their right? Turn this process in the reverse, a heterosexual person is feeling opposite sex attraction and wants to explore that lifestyle in consultation with his doctor[s].”

We were not especially surprised by the reluctance of one of the bill’s cheerleaders to speak to our concern because Sacramento is a one-party town. The capital of California run by what some have called the “Mexican mafia” i.e., a disproportionately large number of “Hispanic” politicians, aides, lobbyists and interest groups who have fully signed on to the hard left principle of cultural warfare, and to these people public accountability is not something with which they are particularly comfortable with.

“Thank you for reaching out. Our office does not have any comment on AB 2943.”

Ramadan - Time To Step Up Islamic Conversion Efforts

April 23, 2018 - San Francisco - CA - PipeLineNews.org - Two years ago we wrote about the Muslim publishing house Sound Vision [William Mayer and Beila Rabinowitz, Islamist Sound Vision Foundation’s “Civilization Jihad” Targets American Press , PipeLineNews.org] and its efforts to supply stealth jihadists with media products that are commonly used in da’wa [conversion] activities.

Chicago’s Muslim owned Sound Vision Foundation, though having gained 501[c]3 status [remarkably absolved from the responsibility of even filing yearly 990 financial reports, upon the claim that it is a church, though it is physically situated in a Chicago high rise office building] is a slick stealth jihadi media production house that operates almost precisely along guidelines of “civilization jihad” as outlined in the pivotal document, An Explanatory Memorandum On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America .

Now Sound Vision is urging the Muslim flock to kick conversion [da’wa] efforts into high gear in conjunction with the coming of Ramadan.

Sound Vision’s Ammarah Usmani outlines the strategy. Notice how meticulously the da’wa efforts are concealed within a false mantle friendliness. Islam commands that Muslims MUST constantly strive to convert, regardless of the perfidy employed.

“The current political atmosphere in the United States has been seemingly detrimental for Muslims, but a positive result has been that more and more people are becoming open-minded about Islam and speaking up in support of Muslims.

What better opportunity than Ramadan to show others the spiritual, charitable side to Muslims as well?

This time around, let’s change it up a bit. Let’s make “empathy” the theme of this Ramadan, develop good, caring habits, and keep them up throughout the year. Here are some ideas for reaching out to your neighbors during Ramadan:

1. Show them you care.

Introduce yourself to your neighbors if you haven’t already. Whether they’re Muslim or not, ask how they’re doing as they’re walking to check the mail or playing outside with their kids. It can seem preachy if you just approach your neighbors just to share information about Islam, so develop a friendly relationship first.

2. Send a card.

Things Don’t Go Better With Koch - A Short History Of The Anti-Jihad Movement

By WILLIAM MAYER

April 19, 2018 - San Francisco - CA - PipeLineNews.org – It has been 17 long years since 19 Muslim terrorists hijacked 4 commercial jet airliners and then used them to topple New York’s Twin Towers and shortly thereafter cause significant carnage when one of the jets was flown into the Pentagon...and what have we learned?

The answer to that question varies as there are two competing explanations for exactly where we are culturally and socially, one of which - perhaps unintentionally - perpetuates the conditions necessary for furthering the global jihad started on September, 11, 2001 and the other, which would swiftly end the threat to Western Culture, has intentionally been suppressed by the very way things work in the DC/I95 Corridor.

[Note: arguably we could date the inception of the Islamic war against the West to November 1990 when El Sayyid Nosair assasinated firebrand Orthodox rabbi Meir Kahane in Manhattan, or 1993 when imam Omar Abdul-Rahman’s terror cell (which included Nosair) partially succeeded in bombing the Twin Towers, or 1996 when Shaykh Osama bin-Laden issued his, Declaration of War Against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places] an 8,000 word document detailing the Qur’anic basis for issuing the fatwa against the “Crusaders and Jews.,” which was subsequently republished in 1998 ]

In DC, money is a particularly addicting form of power, and that power is used to further the goals of those doing the funding.

Now under the long accepted political theory of democratic constitutional republics - pluralism - though few individuals have the resources to have direct access to the levers of power, all citizens can be represented through associations [or, in the non-pejorative sense, pressure groups] who then can petition the government to address concerns, redress grievances or merely lobby for policy initiatives.

But in the real world things aren’t quite so clear cut and the details can be messy in execution...more about this later...

Creating Narratives Misusing Statistical Data

April 9, 2018 - San Francisco - CA - PipeLineNews.org - To those who have read by recently published books, Uncle Joe, FDR and the Deep State and especially it’s predecessor, Islamic Jihad, Cultural Marxism and the Transformation of the West, some of what follows touches on themes more fully developed therein, but hopefully this posting will provide some additional clarity.

Just released today a Reuters IPSOS poll indicates that the GOP may be in for heavy weather this coming November…if the trends hold that is.

The poll is, as are nearly all media surveys, defective from a number of standpoints:

One - those in the sample were contacted via telephone and given the current technology that would mean only those who remain wedded to the now almost antique notion of land line communication. The rapidly burgeoning number of people who use only their mobile phones are never factored in. This is a huge, insurmountable difficulty and it's at the base of the entire process of skewing data.

Two - only “adults” were sampled, demonstrably the least valid way of taking the pulse of the electorate. Accurate polls need to be “weighted” to represent what the real electorate will look like in, sometime two, often four years in the future, a tall order. Therefore sampling either “registered voters” or better yet, “registered voters likely to cast a ballot” cannot help but be more representative of the mood of the nation at any particular time.

Iran’s Humiliating Loss In Passover War

April 4, 2018 - San Francisco - CA - PipeLineNews.org – Many have been led to believe that Iran is some kind of Middle East colossus, capable of shaping the reality of surrounding countries to its advantage…but the “Passover War should serve to shatter that image.

Yes, Iran remains a huge threat, but one which now must be characterized as more of a potential danger [as opposed to immediate] because as proven in HAMAS’ Gaza “uprising” the country’s predatory efforts in the Passover War only resulted in death and maiming of dozens of Gaza’s poorest, least educated citizens who were duped by Iran/HAMAS/Hezbollah’s peddling of the glories of the coming jihad.

Notice how news of the event seems to have vanished from the MSM, that is, the outlets that even covered it. This is because, as our readers all intuitively know, getting your ass handed to you in such a pathetic display of ignorant belligerence, immediately capped by the country most despised on the left - Israel - is not the stuff to build upon the absurd “Palestinian” narrative.

This is especially of interest since Israel went total “hard ass” [as opposed by its previous policy of “measured response] against the would be invaders. Though the IDF initially tried to dissuade this modern day version of an Islamic Children’s Crusade Jihad using CS tear gas, flash-bang grenades and rubber bullets, when they proved less than effective, live fire was directed into the crowd [estimated in the tens of thousands] leaving approximately 18 dead and hundreds with lesser injuries .
