Trump’s Title X “Gag Rule” Protects Patients from Abortions

Warren Albrecht | United States

President Trump’s so-called Title X gag rule of medical staff from family planning clinics does nothing more than reduce abortion money. Planned Parenthood receives almost $60 million in Title X grant money. The mainstream media headlines are always about Planned Parenthood and the catastrophe if one clinic closes.

Today, the media testimony in support of Title X is discussed as women’s health. However, Title X is not designed for that result.

The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services oversees Title X activities and monies. All arguments against the recent Title X rule by the Trump Administration is about the interpretation of the “abortion” section of Title X.  Section 1008 of the Family Planning and Population Research Act reads, “None of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.”

If the world is to collapse because of overpopulation, as was the concern of President Nixon and John D Rockefeller III, then Title X would be the single most important federal funding plan in the history of the world. Today, Title X is continually fought over as a money machine for abortion referrals.

Justice Thomas Reveals a History of Population Control

Dr. Warren Albrecht | United States

In a 20 page concurring opinion in the recent Box v. Planned Parenthood, Justice Clarence Thomas describes a modern population control doctrine where Planned Parenthood would lead modern-day eugenics providing abortion exclusively because of the sex or race of the baby or non-lethal disabilities such as Down’s Syndrome.

Separating the Art from the Artists Involved

Jack Shields | @Jack_Shields20

I, like so many comic book fans, had already known for over a month what my plans for last weekend were going to be. Since the unexpected success of Ironman from which the unprecedented and extremely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe was born, I knew that every opening weekend I would be spending my Friday night in a movie theater. Last weekend it was the premiere of Captain Marvel, and in the months leading up to it, I was quite excited. The trailers were fun, she’s an awesome superhero with an interesting backstory, and seeing Nick Fury with two eyes was reason enough to watch the movie to see if I could learn how he loses his eye. Yet, this was different, especially considering the statements of actress Brie Larson before the release of the movie.

Top 5 Most Anticipated Films of 2019

Brennan Dubé | @BrennanForFilms

While still taking into account each movie’s potential in the money-making department, to compile these five films I looked past just dollar signs and also looked at their potential in terms of award-winning capability, nostalgia, and the huge upside if these films turn out to be great!

5. Captain Marvel

Director: Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck

Main Cast: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg, Jude Law

‘Captain Marvel’ is the next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will come out on March 8th of 2019. The film holds a budget of $150 million dollars and will definitely be a spectacle on the screen. Brie Larson stars as lead in the movie and this will mark the first time a female character will play the sole lead in an MCU movie. This is significant as it will be a great test for the untitled ‘Black Widow’ movie and may potentially open a door for Marvel. We were initially aware of the film during the post-credits scene in ‘Infinity War’ which foreshadowed her arrival. The film is said to be an origin story and will take place in the 1990s.

4. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Director: Quentin Tarantino

Main Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning

Director Quentin Tarantino is back, this time with ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.’ The film is a mystery-crime movie centered around the Manson family murders which occurred in August of 1969. The film is sure to have its own flair and with an incredible cast led by Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie, this film has enough intrigue already! The film is set for release on July 26th of 2019. The film definitely has award-winning potential as Tarantino has had great past success with almost every single one of his films having been at least nominated for an Academy Award.

3. Glass

Director: M. Night Shyamalan

Main Cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, James McAvoy, Sarah Paulson, Anya Taylor-Joy

When this trailer dropped several months ago it sent the internet in a frenzy. This movie has a downside and a massive upside. The film will act as a sequel to Shyamalan’s critically acclaimed films, ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split.’ ‘Glass’ has the potential to be Shyamalan’s huge comeback, with an excellent cast this film definitely has award-winning potential if everything is conveyed perfectly. The movie has the capability to be eerily unique and twisted, as well as artistically astounding. If Jackson, Willis, and McAvoy all hit home runs, this could be one for the absolute ages.

2. The Lion King 

Director: Jon Favreau 

Main Cast: Donald Glover, James Earl Jones, Beyoncé, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Seth Rogen

Disney’s live-action remakes continue in 2019 with ‘The Lion King’ highlighting them all. Some skeptics may doubt the necessity of live-action remakes but with the star-studded cast and the same director that brought us ‘The Jungle Book’ (2016), this film is surely going to be a hit. The trailer garnered record-breaking views for Disney on YouTube and will definitely be a massive hit at the box office next summer. The film is set for release on July 19th, 2019.

1. Avengers: Endgame

Director: Antony Russo and Joe Russo

Main Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson

When ‘Infinity War’ came out it was more than a superhero movie, more than just a blockbuster. It was an experience. Massive amounts of people went to see it, it was the talk of the internet for weeks following and it ended up grossing over $2 billion worldwide, only the fourth movie to do so. ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is set for release April 26th. For starters, the ‘Endgame’ trailer broke the record for being the most viewed trailer on YouTube 24 hours after release with 289 million views. This film will extend that experience and give us the answers we so desperately crave after ‘Infinity War.’ The entire globe plans on seeing this and that is why it is the most anticipated film of 2019!
