Four-Year-Old Girl Goes Home for Christmas for the First Time

Young Phaylnn Graham of Missouri was born two months premature and has spent the past four years in the hospital due to underdeveloped lungs. This Christmas, however, her doctors gave her the medical all-clear to go home for the first time since she was born, just in time to celebrate Christmas. Though she will still require the extra help of a nurse at the home, her family is excited to celebrate their first Christmas together outside of the hospital. It’s during the Advent celebration we take pause to consider the blessings that happen all around us despite our challenges. Read more…

A four-year-old girl who spent her life in a Missouri hospital due to a lung condition is returning home for the first time— just before Christmas.

Phalynn Graham had been born two months premature, causing her lungs to be undeveloped.

For the past four years, Phalynn required round-the-clock care and had to be connected to a ventilator to breathe. But her condition improved enough that the doctors at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital in Missouri decided to discharge her on Thursday, allowing her to go home for the first time since she was born.

The hospital wrote on Facebook Friday that it was a “bittersweet moment” to send Phalynn home after she had been hospitalized for 1,208 days.

Biological Man Dominating Women’s Handball

Hannah Mouncey is a 6’2″, 220 lb. biological man who is dominating as a woman on Australia’s women’s handball team after successfully petitioning that weight cannot be considered a criteria for qualification, and that doing so is “backwards.” Mouncey, who notably competed on the male team before his “transition,” is being credited for the team’s newfound success in international competition. According to Breitbart, Mouncey cited Iran for being progressive on transgender rights: “With a single-minded focus on transgenderism, Mouncey even praised Iran as ‘progressive’ for rules allowing transgender players. Yes, the same Iran that executes men for being gay is ‘progressive’ in Mouncey’s view.” Read more…

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Until 2016, Hannah Mouncey played for Australia’s men’s handball league. But now, after transitioning to a woman, the six-foot-two, 220-pound Mouncey is utterly dominating Australia’s women’s handball league, Daily Wire noted.

Mouncey literally towers over opponents and overpowers them in reach, strength, speed, and weight, but has been allowed to compete as a woman despite the incredible advantage.

With Mouncey leading the drive, Australia is back in the hunt for an Asian Women’s Handball championship for the first time in years.

Mouncey has been racking up the points at a growing rate with four goals against Kazakhstan last week, and eight goals against Japan and Iran in recent matches.

According to the Swedish sports site Handbolls Kanalen, “Australia defeated Iran by 29-24, and the result may turn out to be gold worth. If they finish in fifth place or better, Oceania is winning a World Cup through the Asian Championship. It also means that IHF will not have a wildcard to share.”

Melania Makes Surprise Visit to Injured Service Members

First Lady Melania Trump arrived for an unannounced visit Tuesday to our injured military men and women and their families at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, MD.
In yet another show of class, the press was kept out and only informed after the fact when the First Lady shared heartfelt pictures of her visits across her social media accounts.
It’s a stark contrast with the previous administration and just one more example of what leadership and magnanimity can do in uniting the country on the path of making America great again.
Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

 

Melania Trump made a surprise visit Tuesday to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to visit injured service members and their families.

“@FLOTUS has just arrived to @WRBethesda for an unannounced visit to combat-injured service members & their families,” the first lady’s spokesperson Stephanie Grisham tweeted.

“This administration will never stop supporting our men & women in uniform & the families who love them,” she added. “Thank you!!!”

Shortly after the trip, Trump shared a few photos from her visit.“I had a wonderful visit to @WRBethesda today. Thank you to the many dedicated service members & medical staff who take such good care of our men & women in uniform,” FLOTUS captioned her post on Instagram.

The first lady underwent kidney surgery at the medical center in May for a benign embolism and missed President Donald Trump’s trip to Singapore for the historic meeting with North Korea leader Kim Jong-un and the G-7 summit in Canada.

Fonda Calls for Barron to Be ‘Ripped’ from Melania’s Arms

If the headline didn’t give it away, Hollywood’s D-List Actor Peter Fonda — yes, brother of soldier-hating Jane Fonda — is attacking the President’s son over a manufactured leftwing crisis of illegal immigrant children.

They’re allegedly being ‘ripped’ from their parents’ arms or, you know, from the arms of their ‘Uncle’ Javier (aka human-trafficker and possible pedophile).

Fonda’s vile tweet called for Barron Trump to be ‘ripped’ from Melania’s arms and put in a cage ‘with pedophiles’. Appropriately, the Office of the First Lady notified the Secret Service.

It’s too bad tarring and feathering is a thing of the past.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

The Office of the First Lady has notified the Secret Service after actor Peter Fonda called for kidnapping Melania and Donald Trump’s son, Barron, The Daily Caller has learned exclusively.

In a tweet sent Wednesday, the actor called for Barron to be ‘ripped’ from Melania’s arms and put in a cage ‘with pedophiles.’

Tone-Deaf: Democrat Party Leader Calls NFL Boycott

The grand wizards of the Democrat Party clearly haven’t learned the lesson laid out for them in their surprise defeat in the 2016 election.

Millions of Americans — including many in the battleground states who had previously voted for Obama — rejected the elitist, top-down, condescension from the DNC and its fearless leader, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

And, on the cusp of the summer vacation season, the Democrats are still signaling they’re not prepared for the November election in which they really, really need to demonstrate to those voters that things are different this time.

Alas, Rep. Keith Ellison, Deputy Chair of the Democrat National Committee, just announced a brilliant idea: let’s boycott the NFL for finally deciding that showing respect for the flag is a good thing.

It only took the loss of a third of their audience before they got the clue. And it’s clearly a clue the DNC still needs to get. Otherwise that so-called ‘blue wave’ will be a little blue trickle, and the GOP will wipe them all over the map…again.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota called for a boycott of the National Football League over a rule change prohibiting players from kneeling in protest during America’s national anthem.

After controversy marred the 2017–2018 season due to protesting players, the league is requiring players to either stand for the anthem or remain in the locker room until the anthem is over.

The new policy means teams will have to pay a fine if players kneel or sit on the field during the anthem.

Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, called for a boycott of the NFL in a tweet on Sunday.

Kay Coles James: Our Freedom Didn’t Come Cheaply

The list of possible activities could go on, but ask yourself: What do they all have in common? Simply this: It’s your decision how you mark Memorial Day. Because you are free.

And if there’s one thing that Memorial Day reminds us, it’s that our freedom didn’t come cheaply. Many Americans gave what President Abraham Lincoln called “the last full measure of devotion” so that liberty could continue to ring from, yes, sea to shining sea.

It’s all too easy, especially for those of us blessed to have grown up in this great land, to take our liberty for granted. We forget that freedom isn’t free. It must be paid for, and not just once.

Obama: Netflix Projects to Help ‘Train the Next Generation’

If you’re wondering whether Barack Obama will ever just go away, the answer clearly is ‘no’.

In fact, he’s looking for new ways to invade the lives of Americans: on the television.

Barack and Michelle recently announced a new deal with Netflix to produce original content for the streaming giant designed to tell American stories that will ‘heal the political divide’ and train ‘the next generation of leaders’.

One word comes to mind when we consider Obama getting his hands into the film industry: propaganda.

But then again, his project won’t likely produce anything more leftist than what’s already coming out of Hollywood.

So feel free to tune out.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Barack Obama is speaking out about how he wants to use the film projects he develops with Netflix to heal the political divide and tell America’s stories.

Earlier this week, Netflix announced it is partnering with Barack and Michelle Obama to develop original content for the video streaming giant. Initially, no real details were released — including the actual price tag of the contract. But three days later Obama has filled in some of the blanks about his plans, Business Insider reported.

Speaking at a Las Vegas tech conference hosted by cybersecurity company Okta, Obama waxed poetic about the “stories” Americans have to tell and said he wants to use his multi-year contract with Netflix to help “train the next generation of leaders.”

Harvard to Award Hillary Medal for ‘Transformative Impact’

We’re reminded yet again why ivy-lined ivory towers on the Left Coast and the Blue Coast, respectively, have earned such scorn from the rest of America in fly-over country.

In addition to being the paragons of the leftward march into abject cultural oblivion, they also don’t mind thumbing their noses at the rest of us who recognize the hypocrisy of the socialist elites.

Enter Harvard which will reportedly award Hillary on Friday the ‘prestigious’ Radcliffe Medal for her “transformative impact on society.”

And they’re absolutely correct.

Hillary has done more in the last 25 years to polarize American voters against the Democrat Party than any other political figure.

We’ll raise a glass to that. Cheers!

Here’s more from Fox News…

Hillary Clinton will receive Harvard’s prestigious Radcliffe Medal for her “transformative impact on society,” according to the Ivy League university.

She will receive the award Friday as part of the school’s graduation-week activities.

Clinton is a former first lady, New York senator, secretary of State and two-time Democratic presidential candidate. Her 2016 White House bid was damaged severely by an FBI investigation into her use of private email servers to send and receive classified information while at the State Department.

Organizers at Harvard say Clinton was chosen for the award because she’s a “champion for human rights,” a “skilled legislator” and “an advocate of American leadership” on the world stage.

Judge Strikes Down California Assisted-Suicide Law

California’s insistence on allowing doctors to send patients to a premature death has hit a brick wall this week after a state judge struck down the state’s 2016 End of Life Option Act.

California was among latest (very blue) states to jump onto the bandwagon in deciding when a sick or elderly person’s life is no longer ‘quality’ and therefore worthy of ‘death with dignity’.

But the dark underside of the policy stinks of the sort of euthanasia policies that aren’t too far removed from the Third Reich.

Insurance agencies have routinely offered to pay for cheap assisted suicide pills instead of costly life-saving surgery.

And it’s been demonstrated already that folks without insurance or with mental disability are routinely coaxed into ‘no longer being a burden’ to family and friends.

Assisted suicide is really nothing more than soft-eugenics, and it’s high time we send the policy to an untimely death, across the board.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

A California state judge struck down a law allowing doctors to prescribe life-ending drugs to terminally ill adult patients Tuesday, ending the state’s 2016 attempt to legalize euthanasia.

California’s End of Life Option Act passed the legislature in 2016 amid fierce backlash from those claiming it was immoral, CNN reported Wednesday. Judge Daniel Ottolia’s ruling did not pertain to the content of the law, however. He instead ruled in unconstitutional on a procedural basis because it was passed during a special session convened by Gov. Jerry Brown. The ruling comes less than a month after the U.K. ordered the death of toddler Alfie Evans in April, shocking the world.

Adult, terminally ill patients should have the right to decide their life is no longer worth living and “die with dignity,” proponents of assisted suicide argue. The laws force doctors to harm their patients and can make patients feel pressured to commit suicide to cut costs for their families, critics counter.

‘Expert’: Get Consent Before Changing Baby’s Diaper

With triple-x material on the web consuming fully a third of the traffic globally, it’s not a surprise that exploitation of women is all the rage these days.

Morally vacuous reprobates like Harvey Weinstein and his predator friends have been destroyed as the whole Hollywood house of cards came crashing down.

And it’s a good thing. But in usual fashion, the radical left has taken a good thing and completely twisted it beyond recognition.

Now it’s non compos mentis on parade. Enter an Australian ‘expert’ who argues that consent should be given by babies before their diapers can be changed.

No, we’re not kidding.

This is me-too on crack cocaine.

Next up for the left is required consent before you can walk your dog.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

The flowering of the #MeToo movement against sexual assault has brought many abusers to justice, but the emphasis on consent can go way too far. One sexuality expert in Australia illustrated the absurdity of the overemphasis on consent by suggesting that a parent should seek his or her baby’s consent before changing a diaper (called a “nappy” in Australia).

“I’m going to change your nappy now? Is that okay?” Deanne Carson, founder of Body Safety Australia, suggested in remarks to ABC News. “Of course, the baby’s not going to respond, ‘Yes, mom, that’s awesome. I’d love to have my nappy changed.’ But if you leave a space and wait for body language, and wait to make eye contact, then you’re letting that child know that their response matters.”
