BREAKING: ‘A Dark Day for Our State’ – NSW Parliament Finally Passes Euthanasia Laws

BREAKING: ‘A Dark Day for Our State’ – NSW Parliament Finally Passes Euthanasia Laws

In a tragic development for pro-life groups around the country, New South Wales has become the last state in Australia to pass assisted dying legislation. The bill passed the NSW Upper House after a lengthy debate and the amendments were accepted by the Lower House.

After three attempts over a decade, advocates of the bill – led by activist independent Alex Greenwich – have finally succeeded in permitting terminally ill patients to choose to end their own lives.

The bill received strong support in the Legislative Council (the Upper House), passing 23 to 15, according to the Australian Broadcasting Network.

Only a handful of the nearly 100 amendments debated passed the Upper House, with any amendments put forward by opponents of the bill dismissed as ‘hostile’ and voted down.  These amendments included one that would have permitted aged care and residential organisations to choose not to provide euthanasia services.

Damien Tudehope, the leader of the government in the Upper House, spoke against the bill, ultimately stating that he would leave the chamber thinking “this is a dark day for our state”.

Encouragingly, when the bill was originally passed in the Lower House, both the Premier, Dominic Perrottet, and the Opposition Leader, Chris Minns, voted against it.

Alex Greenwich, who also spearheaded the charge for abortion decriminalisation, was the de facto sponsor of the bill; however, it also received support from a number of other sponsors.

Greenwich has already turned his aim to the federal battlefield, urging federal parliamentarians to remove bans on territories introducing euthanasia legislation.

FamilyVoice Director Greg Bondar said that all major faith organisations had rejected the legislation.

“MPs have failed to adopt their ethical and religious conscience in opposing this bill,” he said.

The Australian Christian Lobby also spoke out about the law’s passage, calling it a ‘dangerous’.

As euthanasia legislation is now legal around Australia, Christians can pray that the vulnerable, suffering and dying people will not be pressured into degrading their own lives’ worth before God. Let’s pray that each person will appreciate just how precious their life is to their loved ones and, more importantly, to their Maker.

NBC Poll, Contracted to Same Democrat Firm Who Created Ultra MAGA Branding Effort, Reflects Highest Disapproval Ever for Joe Biden

NBC Poll, Contracted to Same Democrat Firm Who Created Ultra MAGA Branding Effort, Reflects Highest Disapproval Ever for Joe Biden

NBC is promoting their contracted poll today [pdf HERE] around the lesser-important voting issue of abortion.  However, before getting to the poll it is worth noting again who they contracted with.  Inside the article you will note this sentence, “[…] who conducted this survey with Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates.”   If that name sounds familiar, that’s because it is the same ideologically aligned polling outfit who spent six months creating the ultra-MAGA branding campaign for Anita Dunn and the White House {link}.

The abortion polling is irrelevant to the issue of larger public opinions of the Biden administration.  On abortion, 10% of polled respondents say they are single issue voters [respondents = 790 RV’s, (79 single issue)].  Out of 79 single issue voters, 22% list abortion as their top priority. So, out of 790 registered voters, 17 view abortion as their single issue to vote on.  That’s the scale being overemphasized.

On the larger issues of voter priorities, the economy dominates with 40% responses.  Additionally, the polling identifies 39 percent of Americans approving of President Biden’s job as president, versus 56 percent who say they disapprove.  75% say the country is heading in the wrong direction, and only 16% saying the country is on the right track.   That’s the bigger headline.  WATCH:

Senator Rand Paul Blocks Fast-Track Senate Vote for $40 Billion Additional Ukraine Funding

Senator Rand Paul Blocks Fast-Track Senate Vote for $40 Billion Additional Ukraine Funding

Senator Rand Paul has blocked a fast-track senate vote on the additional $40 billion funding package created by Joe Biden and House Democrats.  Both Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell approved a fast-track vote; however, senator Rand Paul (KY) stood defiant against their effort.

Despite the high-profile pressure from the two Senate leaders, Rand Paul refused to move and that means the Senate will have to take procedural steps to overcome his objection, which could take several days. “My oath of office is the US constitution not to any foreign nation and no matter how sympathetic the cause, my oath of office is to the national security of the United States of America,” Paul said in his remarks before objecting to moving to swift passage of the bill. “We cannot save Ukraine by dooming the US economy.” WATCH:

The $40 billion supplemental spending bill for Ukraine is more than the total military budget of Russia.  The combined Ukraine aid packages now exceed $60 billion, more than the entire budget for the U.S. Dept of Homeland Security including border protection.

Rand Paul is on the right side of history with his position, and the overwhelming majority of Americans agree with him.   However, the opinion of the people is irrelevant to the Senate.   Even democrat Senator Chuck Schumer seemed to admit this point when he said Rand Paul’s position “was not the opinion of the overwhelming majority here,” meaning in the senate.  Schumer would have used other terms if he thought the American people agreed with him.  They don’t, and he knows it.

Senate Democrat Effort to Create Massive Expansion of Abortion via Federal Law Fails by 11 Votes

Senate Democrats wanted to manufacture a political optic using the hot button issue of abortion.  The senate pushed a bill for a massive expansion of abortion, far beyond Roe -v- Wade, to the floor.  However, the bill needed 60 votes to pass cloture, end debate.

Embarrassingly, and in a pure political stunt, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer summoned Kamala Harris to the upper chamber in the event she was needed for a “tie-breaking” vote.  However, cloture requires 60 votes, not 50, so the optics of Harris only highlighted the insufferable politics.

The cloture vote failed 49-51, far short of the 60 votes needed to end debate and attempt to pass the bill.  Democrat Senator Joe Manchin voted with republicans to block the cloture effort.  The federal abortion legislation now disappears back into the filing cabinet from which it came.

WASHINGTON – […] In a 49-51 vote, the Senate rejected the Democratic legislation, with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and all Republicans voting against the measure. While the outcome was no surprise and mirrored a similar vote on abortion protections the Senate took in February, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer suggested the court’s draft opinion, published by POLITICO last week, had raised the stakes.

“Today’s vote is one of the most consequential we will take in decades because for the first time in 50 years, a conservative majority, an extreme majority on the Supreme Court, is on the brink of declaring that women do not have freedom over their own bodies,” Schumer said in a floor speech Wednesday morning, adding that the decision “will live in infamy.” (read more)

According to Manchin’s earlier statement, “Democrats are “trying to make people believe that this is the same thing as codifying Roe v. Wade. And I want you to know, it’s not,” he argued, referring to the bill’s ban on some state restrictions on the procedure currently allowed. “This is not the same. It expands abortion.”

Senate Leadership Agree, the Most Important Focus for Legislation is Massive Ukraine Spending Package

The republican senate leadership team held a press conference today announcing their support for the priority agenda of Joe Biden and the White House.

As Leader Mitch McConnell noted at the beginning of his remarks, “we all agree, the most important thing going on in the world right now is the war in Ukraine,” and with that statement McConnell announced he and Joe Biden have agreed to advance a massive package of $40 billion to pay the salaries and retirement benefits of the Ukrainian government.

Comrades, you must put aside any stress about how to afford groceries and still fill your gas tank, there are people in the government of Ukraine who need your tax dollars more.  WATCH (45 seconds):

Ultra MAGA Candidate Kathy Barnette is Surging in GOP Pennsylvania Senate Race

Ultra MAGA Candidate Kathy Barnette is Surging in GOP Pennsylvania Senate Race

With eight days to go before the republican primary in Pennsylvania, ultra-MAGA candidate Kathy Barnette is surging.  In a recent republican-leaning Trafalgar Poll {SEE DATA HERE} Barnette has shot to second place with 23.2%, only 1% behind Dr. Mehmet Oz who is at 24.5%.

President Trump has endorsed Dr. Oz, however, a considerable number of people in the grassroots MAGA base do not trust Oz, view David McCormick as an establishment candidate, and they are going strong with support for Kathy Barnette {WEBSITE HERE}.

A victory is within reach for the candidate who says “Now more than ever, America requires strong, authentic Republican voices to stand up and defend the U.S. Constitution and the rights we hold dear. I will be that voice — for Pennsylvania and our great nation.”

After winning the Pennsylvania straw poll in April, Barnette has continued to gain momentum and increased attention.

Ballotpedia: “Barnette worked as a political commentator and in corporate finance after serving in the United States Army Reserves. Barnette identifies herself as an America First candidate, a term often associated with the platform of Trump and candidates who say they support Trump’s agenda. In response to Trump’s endorsement of Oz, Barnette said, “MAGA does not belong to President Trump . . . although he coined the word, it belongs to the people. Our values never shifted to President Trump’s values. It was President Trump who shifted and aligned with our values.” (link)
