Maafa 21 Rocks!

By any measure, the response to Maafa 21 has been astonishing.

It is routinely being called “stunning,” “breathtaking,” and “jaw-dropping.”  Many viewers have said they were left “speechless” by what they saw and several have told us that it filled them with anger.  One African-American pastor and 1960’s civil rights activist said, “I had always been suspicious about some of this stuff, but this film connects the dots in a way I never really understood before.”  Another described it as “lightening in a bottle” and said that for the first time in his life has a tool to educate the African-American community about the abortion lobby’s real agenda. 

It has never been a secret that one of the pro-life movement’s biggest frustrations has been its inability to effectively recruit the African-American community.  Despite the fact that polls consistently show that blacks are more pro-life than whites, that reality has not translated into them joining the battle in significant numbers.     

But with the launch of Maafa 21, that is changing and even though we are just getting started the message is spreading like wildfire.  The internet and YouTube are buzzing with Maafa 21; one conservative radio talk show purchased 750 copies for his audience and it has been shown twice in the Capitol Visitor Center Theater in Washington.  This was done through the help of Congressman Trent Franks and, after the showing, one African-American woman who works as an aid to a pro-choice member of the Congressional Black Caucus said, “I was moved to tears.  I came in here with an opposite mindset and I am leaving with another.  My life has been changed forever.”

Another example of the power of Maafa 21 was seen when Rev. Clenard Childress assembled a team of black street activists who gave out 400 copies of Maafa 21 to credentialed members of the NAACP at their recent four-day national convention.  The response was incredible with many people taking the DVD back to their hotel room to watch at night and then returning the next day to ask what they could do to help.  In fact, one of those who did exactly that was an NAACP attorney.  Clenard also found strong support among the younger convention goers and one professor at a historically black college said he was going to make Maafa 21 part of his curriculum. 

One thing that made Clenard’s NAACP effort so successful was a statement by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  Just days before the convention began, she was quoted in the New York Times saying, “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

Think about that for a moment.  Here is the most radically pro-abortion member of the United States Supreme Court admitting that the driving force behind the legalization of abortion was not “women’s rights” or “privacy” or  “reproductive freedom” as we’ve been told.  She says that the motivation for it was EUGENICS, which is precisely what Maafa 21 documents!  We could not have bought a public relations victory like that for a billion dollars and here it was being given to us for free.  Clenard told me that whenever his team repeated that quote to the convention participants, even those who were the most skeptical about Maafa 21 were suddenly quite interested.  It seems they were aware of who the “population” was that Ginsburg and her cronies did not “want to have too many of.”

We are especially excited about how Maafa 21 is opening doors for us into areas where the pro-life message has seldom been heard and often unwelcomed.  Liberal “peace and justice” groups are starting to have Maafa 21 showings on college campuses.  And some “Afro-Centric” groups who are not necessarily Christian and have generally been disinterested in the abortion issue, are now actively promoting Maafa 21. 

An example of this is a California man named Keidi Obi Awadu.  Keidi is the founder of Black Star Media and the Living in Black Radio Network and he has an international audience.  Already, he has personally bought over 100 copies of Maafa 21 and has helped us secure someone to distribute the film in England.  Keidi has also become instrumental in an effort to have it shown at predominately black colleges and universities across America.  To put it mildly, Keidi and his people are on fire for Maafa 21.                 

Another thing we are finding is that Maafa 21 is not simply impacting the African-American community.  We are already seeing whites–especially those who are high school and college aged–becoming outraged and then activated by what it documents.

Those who are familiar with Life Dynamics know that we have been responsible for some of the most explosive revelations about the abortion industry in the history of this battle.  In just two high-profile examples, we uncovered the lucrative trade in baby body parts and we later exposed the abortion industry’s nationwide pedophile protection racket.  But as enormous as those stories were, I can honestly tell you that I have never seen anything have the impact of Maafa 21.  Although we are only at the beginning, it is clear that this film is going to grow our movement and change our image for the better.  It is also bringing a fresh level of energy and excitement by recruiting the reinforcements our battle-weary troops have desperately needed for years. 

So stay tuned.  Like I said, we’re just getting started.  By the way, if you haven’t seen Maafa 21 yet, check out the two-minute trailer for it at Maafa21.com.  That website also contains some insightful comments from previous viewers.

 

Of Diapers and Deficits

Earlier this year, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for the government's economic stimulus package to include a healthy increase in spending for what she called “family planning.”  (If you didn't already know, “family planning” is generally code for abortion.)  Pelosi said that this would save state and federal governments the cost of having to pay for the health care and education of poor children.  Of course, it's pretty hard to argue with that sort of logic.  After all, dead children are less expensive to care for than live children.  

 

In any event, Pelosi's remarks came on the heels of Barak Obama signing an executive order allowing money taken out of the paychecks of American workers to be used for abortions in foreign countries!  In other words, the Obama administration’s position is that we are running out of money to take care of our own children but we have enough to pay for the executions of other people's children.  Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood (America's number one abortion profiteer) continues to be given approximately one million dollars a day in taxpayer funding and there are calls within our government for that amount to be doubled. 

 

So let's recap.  In last year's presidential campaign, Obama labels babies a “punishment” and, now, one of his co-degenerates is claiming that babies contribute to our country’s financial woes.  In this environment, it is probably no coincidence that the abortion lobby is ratcheting up its rhetoric that the faltering economy is a justification for abortion.  The sense of evil is palpable when you hear them almost gleefully predict that the abortion rate is going to increase as women rely on it to compensate for bad economic conditions.  

 

But the question is, are babies really to blame for our economic collapse?  And the answer is that they are.

 

Let me explain.  It has long been known that as consumers approach retirement they spend less money.  The two areas where this is felt the most is in the sales of cars and houses – the two industries that form the backbone of the American economy.  The good news has always been that, as older people began to buy less they were replaced by younger consumers who bought more.  It was a cycle that was repeated from one generation to the next.  But here’s the problem we face today.  The American baby-boomer is the wealthiest generation of people in the history of the world and they spent money like there was no tomorrow.  In that process, they created an economy that was (a) the envy of the world and (b) completely dependant on that level of spending in order to survive. 

 

While doing this, however, they aborted more than one-fourth of the next generation of consumers.  This guaranteed that, once the baby-boomers started reaching retirement, the spending frenzy of the last forty years would be over.  And now, that is precisely what has happened.  In 2008, baby-boomers began reaching retirement age, the sales of cars and houses plummeted and that put the entire economy into a tailspin.  Further, we are just at the very beginning of this phenomenon.  By any realistic measure, there is a financial tsunami rolling toward the United States that will make our current environment seem like “the good ole’ days.”  From now until 2026, baby-boomers are going to reach retirement age at the rate of 10,000 a day!  And even if we learn how to live with less consumer spending, the effect of that is going to bankrupt our social services infrastructure. 

 

One obvious place you can see this is in the area of Social Security.  In the 2000 presidential election, Al Gore bored us to near suicide with his incessant droning about the need for a "lock box" to protect the funds being held by the Social Security system.  Of course, he was lying.  He knew good and well that there is no need for such a lock box because Congress was running a Ponzi scheme with Social Security and there is no money left to lock up.  Over the years, Congress grabbed it, left an IOU in its place, and then squandered it to buy votes.  While Bernie Madoff rightly deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison, the only differences between Madoff and Congress are that his crimes were on a far smaller scale and he got caught.    

 

Now we’ve reached the day of reckoning.  The money to fulfill the government’s social obligations to the baby-boomers is long-gone.  The result is that we will soon be at a point where younger taxpayers will be forced to send in boxcars full of their money to pay for the services that were promised to them.  The fact that this money has already been collected once is irrelevant.  The children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the baby boomers are going to be taxed into oblivion replacing money that was stolen by Congress.  What most Americans don’t realize is that this problem has been made exponentially worse by abortion.

 

The designers of Social Security based it on an assumption of an ever-growing, or at least stabile, workforce.  They could not have foreseen that America would one day legalize the wholesale slaughter of its own children.  But on January 22, 1973, that’s what happened.  The result has been that, over the last 36 years, over 25 percent of the taxpayers needed to replace the money baby-boomers paid into the system were executed.  To appreciate the impact of this, consider that since abortion has been legal, birth rates in the United States have often been below replacement levels.  In fact, if one removes immigration from the census figures, America's population has been at best flat or, by most reliable estimates, in decline.  For the Social Security system, that has been a disaster waiting to happen and the wait ended in 2008.  Like nations all over the world, America is beginning to discover why the shrinking populations they wanted are a barometer of economic disaster.

 

This reality is also going to have a devastating effect on the Medicare and Medicaid systems.  I think this is probably the main reason why there is this sudden panic in Congress to implement socialized medicine.  They know that the money to take care of the baby-boomers was stolen.  After all, they are the ones who stole it.  But they certainly can’t afford for the voters to find that out, and a perfect way to make sure they don’t is to dump the boomers into to a government run universal healthcare system. 

 

Another way abortion affects the economy is seen in the immigration issue.  Today, there is a vigorous national debate about whether illegal immigrants are only taking jobs American workers don't want anyway.  While that may or may not be true, what is undeniable is that illegal immigrants are replacing the millions of workers who were killed through abortion.  The problem is, beyond the financial burdens that illegal immigration imposes on the U.S. economy, it also contributes to the diminished demand for American consumer goods – including cars and houses.  That’s because a very high percentage of America’s illegal immigrants live in poverty conditions so they can send money back to their families in Mexico.  Over the years, this amount has grown to the point that it is now consistently one of the largest sources of income for the entire Mexican economy.  And any way you look at it, this is money that, without abortion, would have been earned by Americans and spent in America.  But those Americans don’t exist so it ends up being earned by Mexicans and spent in Mexico. 

 

Sadly, this has also eliminated any chance for the Mexican economy to become as strong as it should be.  It is time for someone to point out that there is no reason for Mexico to be a poor country.  It has a wealth of natural resources, a good climate and a population made up of decent hard-working people.  However, it is not possible for any nation to have a vibrant economy while sending millions of its youngest and most productive workers out of the country.

 

In the final analysis, this is a system that costs the American taxpayer trillions of dollars, threatens the stability of the U.S. economy, keeps Mexico poor, and cynically exploits the illegal immigrant.  But it will continue because every member of Congress knows – whether they have the guts to admit it or not – that immigration is the only way to replace the workers who have been aborted.

 

So yes, babies are indeed the cause of our economic collapse.  Not for the reasons the Obamas and Pelosis of the world have you think, but because America has murdered the babies who would have supported our economy and financed our social service obligations.  In 1973, our nation bought the lie that we could savagely execute millions of innocent human beings without consequence and, now, the chickens are coming home to roost. 

 

Having said that, however, we should never reduce the abortion debate to one solely based on economics.  Even if this holocaust had lined our streets in gold, it could still never be justified.  It would serve us well to understand that the fallout from the legalization of abortion will ultimately go far beyond financial considerations.  Let's not forget that a generation that killed its own children whenever it found them inconvenient, unhealthy or expensive is now entering a stage of life when it will soon become inconvenient, unhealthy and expensive.  The survivors of a generation whose fate was in our hands, will soon have our fate in theirs.  Given that sobering reality, maybe our only hope is that God was just kidding when He said that man reaps what he sows.  But the early indicators are that He wasn’t.

We Told You that Babies are to Blame

On Sunday, January 25th, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on the ABC News program, This Week, that the government’s economic stimulus package should include a healthy increase in spending for what she called “family planning.”  (If you didn’t already know, “family planning” is code for abortion.) 

 

Pelosi said that this would save state and federal governments the cost of having to pay for the health care and education of poor children.  Of course, it’s pretty hard to argue with that sort of logic.  After all, dead children are indeed less expensive than live children.  

 

In any event, Pelosi’s remarks came on the heels of Barak Obama signing an executive order allowing money taken out of the paychecks of American workers to be used for abortions – in foreign countries!  In other words, at the same time we’re being told that America doesn’t have enough money to take care of its own children, we’re also being told that we have enough to pay for the executions of other people’s children.  Meanwhile, as the economy spirals toward the ground, Planned Parenthood – America’s number one abortion profiteer – is getting about a million dollars a day in taxpayer funding and there are calls for that to be doubled. 

 

So let’s recap.  In last year’s presidential campaign, Obama labels babies a “punishment” and, now, one of his co-degenerates follows that up by saying that they contribute to our financial woes.  Isn’t it interesting that these people who claim overpopulation is the cause of economic ruin – and every other social problem known to man – never volunteer to give their own lives to address these issues?  No sir.  They only insist that others be killed for the greater good and the group they “choose” is the only one that can’t fight back.

 

How strange. 

 

 

Why the Big Rush?

As I watch Congress deal with the mess on Wall Street, three things come to mind.

 

First, we are once again forced to watch as a collection of buffoons who couldn’t run a lemonade stand are allowed to manipulate the largest economy in the history of the world.  In all fairness, however, I will concede that it is possible that they will make sound financial decisions.  If pressed to give the odds of that actually happening, I’d say they are roughly the same as the odds that a monkey flailing away at a typewriter would type out the Old Testament.    

 

Second, I am suspicious of the speed at which this calamity unfolded.  It seems that within about an-hour-and-a-half after all this became public, Congress was in emergency session.  Then a few minutes later, a trillion-dollar bailout plan was announced as if it were a done-deal which, as we now know, it wasn’t. 

 

I get the uneasy feeling that Congress wants this whole thing to go away as quickly as possible.  The question is, why?  They are claiming this is the biggest meltdown since the Great Depression, so wouldn’t it be wise to take some time to design the right solution?  So why aren’t they?  And don’t for a moment believe that they are scurrying around like this because they are worried about the impact it will have on the American people.  I will assure you that whenever you see Congress running down the field like their hair is on fire, there is always something in it for them. 

 

Call me cynical, but it seems to me that Congress wants to get rid of this problem before the public has a chance to figure out that they are the ones who caused it.  And if that is indeed the case, I will also assure you that whatever bill is finally passed will be one that covers-up that reality.  Remember, this is an election year.   

 

Finally, there are moral considerations related to this problem.  In America today, we want to treat morality as if it is something that only applies to issues like abortion and homosexuality.  But the fact is that every decision a politician makes has a moral component.  In this case, the problem was created by financial institutions that ignored the immorality of loaning money to people that they knew couldn’t pay it back, and consumers who took these loans knowing the same thing.  

 

The point is that the best financial minds in the world cannot solve this problem if the solution is indifferent to morality.  Unfortunately, when you look at the people in Congress who are in charge of addressing this issue, what you see is that the vast majority have morals that are so low they can support the wholesale slaughter of unborn children.  In short, while their financial qualifications may be weak, their moral qualifications are non-existent.  And we are fooling ourselves if we think that such people can come up with anything more than a temporary patch.
