- Leonard Cohen, Rest In Peace
As written recently by Jonathon Van Maren, "For all his many faults, Cohen is nothing if not unblinking. His work shows a clear and progressively growing disillusionment with our throwaway culture’s crude approach to everything good and beautiful, and his words often smolder with contempt.
"In Diamonds in the Mine, for example, he mourned the transformative effect of the Sexual Revolution on people:
Ah, there is no comfort in the covens of the witch,
some very clever doctor went and sterilized the bitch,
and the only man of energy, yes the revolution's pride,
he trained a hundred women just to kill an unborn child.
"Such lines have attracted the ire of some of his feminist fans, who began to identify an anti-abortion ethic throughout his work. One pointed to Cohen’s The Story of Isaac, where he condemns those who 'stand above them now, your hatchets blunt and bloody':Click here to read more

- Sing a Little Louder
“Rescue those being led away to death.” Proverbs 24:11.
There are some things that time does not erase.
Years from now will we be like those who tried to explain their apathy while millions of unborn children were led away to slaughter? Will we just sing a little louder or will we raise our voices to defend those who have no voice?
"As the trial balloons and interviews for vice presidential nominations were underway in the summer, every name mentioned to partner with Clinton was devoutly pro-abortion. Every name under consideration by Trump had solid pro-life credentials." Charmaine Yoest in "A Life or Death Decision"

- You never need a late term abortion to save a woman’s life
In the 3rd and final presidential debate, Hillary Clinton was asked why she is against a ban on late-term partial birth abortions. In light of her longstanding association with Planned Parenthood and the abortion business, her answer reveals an astonishing ignorance about the actual process involved in a late term abortion, or she's outright lying.
In this brief segment Ms. Clinton states "I've met with women who at the end of their pregnancy get the worst news that one could get, that their health is in jeopardy if they continue to carry to term or that something terrible has happened or just been discovered about the pregnancy. So, you can regulate if you are doing so with the life and the health of the mother taken into account.”
Here’s the reality. A late term abortion procedure takes 24-72 hours, just to dilate the cervix enough to dismember and remove the baby. A woman whose life is at risk would be dead before the abortion could be completed.
On the other hand, a 1-hour emergency C-Section would most likely save the mother's and her baby's lives.
In the following video, Dr. Anthony Levatino, who has performed over 1200 abortions, explains why “You never need a late term abortion to save a woman’s life.” He is now Pro-Life.Click here to read more

- Hillary Clinton: Ghoulish Abortion Queen
For years, Hillary Clinton has encouraged women to collude with and pay doctors to murder their own unborn children. In 2009, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion corporation, presented U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton with the Margaret Sanger Award. In 2014, Planned Parenthood honored Clinton for her “commitment to womens health.”
The sick irony is that Margaret Sanger, a noted eugenicist and horrible racist, deplored abortion. She never would have called it “womens health.” She would be horrified to know that monsters like Hillary Clinton are presented with an award in her name. Planned Parenthood didn't begin providing abortions until after Margaret Sanger was dead. She would not have tolerated what Planned Parenthood has become: an abortion empire responsible for stopping the beating hearts of over 7 million innocent, helpless lives.
Sanger opened the first birth control center in 1916. She later founded the American Birth Control League, which evolved into today's Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Sanger spoke out repeatedly on preventing pregnancy, not abortion.Click here to read more

- Rigging the Election - Video I: Clinton Campaign and DNC Incite Violence at Trump Rallies
Go to 10:20 to hear Zulema Rodriguez brag about shutting down the highway leading to the FOUNTAIN HILLS, ARIZONA Trump rally. Luke Johnson was on his way to church nearby and within seconds, he was caught, unable to move his work truck and trailer. A huge group of people ran into the road, and he couldn’t get across. He had no idea what was going on. Then, he started getting dozens of calls threatening his life. “People saying they were going to hunt my business down and find me and come after me and destroy my business.” It turns out people had seen his work trailer live on CNN and assumed he was part of the protest even though he wasn’t.
Rodriguez also admits to inciting violence in Chicago, forcing Trump to cancel it for fear that people might get hurt. Thanks Project Veritas (James O'Keefe), doing the job the media refuses to do.Click here to read more

- Please Reelect Jared Taylor for Gilbert Town Council
(Gilbert Watch welcomes this guest letter by Jared Taylor, who is currently serving as the Vice Mayor in Gilbert. He has lived in Gilbert since 1996 with his wife and three daughters.)
Over the last few years, Gilbert has been showered in recognitions. I’m running for re-election to build on our strengths, address our challenges, and keep Gilbert the best place to grow a family and build a business.
Here are a few of the recognitions our wonderful residents and Town have earned: 22nd Best Place to Live (Money Magazine, 2014); 2nd Safest City in the US (Law Street Media, 2016); Best City for Raising a Family (Move.org, 2016); 7th Happiest City in America (Zippia, 2016), and Top 5 Safest Cities to Build Your Startup (Tech.Co, 2016).
We couldn’t live in a better place at a better time. Who would have thought that Gilbert would have grown from “The Hay Capitol of the World” to one of the most successful cities or towns in the US?
My appreciation goes to the many wonderful residents and Town leaders who have made Gilbert so great.
While we have had tremendous success, we continue to need strong leadership to address the challenges we face.
Over the last few decades, a large part of Gilbert’s budget has come from construction sales taxes.Click here to read more
