“Planned Parenthood’s Mammogram Lie”

This is from National Review. It was written by Michelle Malkin.



The gruesome hits keep coming for the baby butchers of Planned Parenthood. President Obama and his top health officials have one last-ditch response left: Quick, hide behind the imaginary mammogram machine!

As more graphic, money-grubbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood’s for-profit aborted-baby-parts racket emerge, thanks to the investigative work of the Center for Medical Progress, desperate Democrats are in full deflection mode. Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell defended federal funding for Planned Parenthood this week by invoking the women’s-health shield. “What I think is important is that our HHS funding is focused on issues of preventative care for women, things like mammograms,” Burwell told the House Education and Workforce Committee.

Just one teeny, tiny problem with this defense: It’s a completely calculated fabrication.


Once again, it was undercover pro-life journalists who unmasked the truth.

An investigation of 30 Planned Parenthood clinics in 27 different states, conducted by the pro-life group Live Action, confirmed that the abortion provider does not perform breast-cancer screenings. “We don’t provide those services whatsoever,” a staffer at Planned Parenthood of Arizona confessed on tape.

Planned Parenthood’s Comprehensive Health Center clinic in Overland Park, Kan., admitted: “We actually don’t have a, um, mammogram machine at our clinics.”

Good News: “Pentagon: Current policy allows arming of troops at recruitment sites”

LCDR Timothy White

LCDR Timothy White

Defense Secretary Ash Carter has signed a memo clarifying that commanders can arm qualified troops at recruiting and other off-base sites, and directing the military services to develop plans to improve security at those sites, the Pentagon said Thursday.

“Existing DOD policy authorizes commanders to arm qualified personnel based on the threat,” said Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. Jeff Davis.

The plans would apply “particularly with recruiting that exists outside of actual bases,” Davis said. “So this is recruiting stations, ROTC units, and reserve centers, and there are about 7,000 of these throughout the United States.”

“Ky. man arrested after shooting down $1,800 drone hovering over sunbathing daughter”

I’d probably have done the same. He knew he’d get into trouble. The town undoubtedly has an ordinance against discharging firearms inside the limits. But, heck…

William H. Merideth, 47, was arrested July 26, 2015 in Bullitt County, Ky. after shooting down an $1800 drone hovering over his sunbathing daughter. (Image: WDRB 41, Louisville screenshot)

I went and got my shotgun and I said, ‘I’m not going to do anything unless it’s directly over my property,’ ” Mr. Merideth said, noting that the drone briefly disappeared when his daughter waved it off. “Within a minute or so, here it came. It was hovering over top of my property, and I shot it out of the sky. I didn’t shoot across the road, I didn’t shoot across my neighbor’s fences, I shot directly into the air.”


The police arrested the homeowner soon afterward.

“There were some words exchanged there about my weapon, and I was open carry — it was completely legal,” he said, the station reported. “Long story short, after that, they took me to jail for wanton endangerment first degree and criminal mischief … because I fired the shotgun into the air.”

Interesting Question: “Nuclear Iran: Is the U.S. Really Suicidal?”

All we have is our powers of observation. What we have observed is that many of the people of the United States do not wish to commit joint suicide. However, we have elected leaders, and they have appointed others, who wish death, suicide if you wish, on America. Mr. Obama and his team promised to fundamentally transform the United States of America. They’re doing it, too.

In order to fundamentally transform you must change the foundations. That necessarily requires demolishing the house, all the way down to the earth it rests on so the rebuilding can begin.

On July 25, 2015, Iran's Supreme Leader (right) sent a tweet of Obama pointing a pistol at his own head.

On July 25, 2015, Iran’s Supreme Leader (right) sent a tweet of Obama pointing a pistol at his own head.

It’s all going swimmingly for them. We can see what they are doing but the why of some of it is still uncertain. Why, for instance, do our leaders demand that terroistic Iran become the new world superpower?

Ponder that for a moment. When the Mullahs in Iran have nuclear weapons they will use them do dominate the entire world. We know that is their goal because they say so. They may not need to evaporate every country. Many will capitulate at the simple threat. But a few million souls will need to be irradiate to show the world the depth of their determination.

At the same time that our leaders are giving Iran the bomb they are making our forces weaker. It does sound like suicide.

San Francisco’s Leaders Are Crazy

Rather than arrest – or even detain – people who pee in the street, the people who run the city have decided to let them do it. It’s become a sanctuary for illegal alien felons, people who want to be naked in public, and those who don’t want to bother to find a rest room.

At first I thought the headline below referred to a type of paint that would cover or destroy the odor of urine. Unfortunately, no.

public pee

“San Francisco combats the stench of urine with pee-repellant paint”

The city’s Public Works agency is testing a pee-repellant paint on walls in areas that have been saturated with urine. Anyone urinating on the specially treated walls will get the spray splashed back onto them.

San Francisco’s director of public works, Mohammed Nuru – whose Twitter handle is @MrCleanSF – got the idea when he read on social media about the use of the paint in Hamburg, Germany’s nightclub district to stop beer drinkers from relieving themselves in the street.”

How is this handled in other areas? How is it that we don’t see it everywhere?

You can read more about it here

In a related story, in the California Political Review, there is a story titled, “What’s the Matter With San Francisco?”.

The writer describes a lot of what is wrong with the city but doesn’t bemoan any of them. He says he went there because of the progressive values that he still believes in.

It’s plain that a progressive is unable to propose an answer to the question that is the title of his piece. He just seems to like to listen to himself.


“Camille Paglia: How Bill Clinton is like Bill Cosby”



This was published in Salon. As Paglia notes, the Cosby revelations will not be good for Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. The article is done in a question and answer format.

Camille Paglia

Camille Paglia

Q: The banner on the Drudge Report this morning is that Kathleen Willey is starting a site to collect harassment claims against Bill Clinton. New York magazine, meanwhile, has the stories of 35 women who say they were raped or assaulted by Bill Cosby. I wonder if you see a connection between the two stories: Would Bill Clinton’s exploits be viewed more like Cosby’s if he was in the White House now, instead of in the 1990s?

A: Right from the start, when the Bill Cosby scandal surfaced, I knew it was not going to bode well for Hillary’s campaign, because young women today have a much lower threshold for tolerance of these matters. The horrible truth is that the feminist establishment in the U.S., led by Gloria Steinem, did in fact apply a double standard to Bill Clinton’s behavior because he was a Democrat. The Democratic president and administration supported abortion rights, and therefore it didn’t matter what his personal behavior was.”

“50 Cities To Hold Rallies Against Planned Parenthood”

I’ll be darned. A grass-roots movement has sprung up to oppose the horror that is Margaret Sanger’s racist Planned Parenthood.


On Tuesday pro-lifers in more than 50 cities – and counting – will be rallying against Planned Parenthood under the banner of #WomenBetrayed in response to the gruesome undercover investigative videos released by the Center for Medical Progress over the past two weeks.

Two Planned Parenthood senior medical officials were exposed as they explained how the taxpayer funded organization performs abortions in such a way as to harvest aborted babies’ body parts to sell them to biomedical companies.

National pro-life group Students for Life of America (SFLA) and its partner organization Pro-Life Future have launched the #WomenBetrayed initiative which urges citizens across the nation to rally to demand their states investigate, prosecute and defund Planned Parenthood.”

From the #Women Betrayed website:



Women have been betrayed by Planned Parenthood. Families have been deceived. And the smallest among us have been the ultimate victims of Planned Parenthood’s horrific business schemes. Quite frankly, we’ve had enough. It’s time to relieve Planned Parenthood of our taxpayer dollars. Join pro-lifers across the nation on Tuesday, July 28th to call on state and federal officials to investigate and defund Planned Parenthood, now!”

Planned Parenthood Is In The News

The ‘Vast, Right-Wing Conspiracy‘ that Hillary Clinton mentioned strikes again, I guess.

“Planned Parenthood hacked”


Planned Parenthood confirmed that its online databases have been hacked, potentially exposing employees’ personal information.

The women’s health and abortion provider said Monday it has reported the crime to the Department of Justice and the FBI.

“Extremists who oppose Planned Parenthood’s mission and services have launched an attack on our information systems, and have called on the world’s most sophisticated hackers to assist them in breaching our systems and threatening the privacy and safety of our staff members,” said Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens Monday afternoon.”

“Planned Parenthood President: Investigators ‘Most disgusting part’ of videos”

Cecile Richards is lying and she’s not good at it. She’s worried and she should be. She actually looks like she is scared to death.

She says the people doing the films lied to gain access to the clinics. The video posted below by RD Walker shows that to be untrue. The woman involved in it was looking for a job and got hired by Stem Express – and was disgusted by what she saw so she spoke out.

This has been a three year, well funded effort by the most militant wing of the anti-abortion movement in this country…”

She says that like it’s a bad thing.


Keep Diggin’ Marty

This is the guy who let an angry woman make him grovel on camera to her because he said, “All lives matter”.

Let’s see, there are three Democrats running for the White House. On top is Hillary Clinton whose numbers are rapidly tanking, and it seems she is on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Bernie Sanders, the socialist from Vermont who wants to tax the rich at 90% until he can figure out how to confiscate 100%, and former Baltimore Mayor and Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley. He is the one who signed some of the strictest anti-gun bills in the nation into law and turned both his city and his state over to race pimps and violent felons.

Now a few Democrats, unhappy with the choices they have, want to draft Crazy Joe Biden.

Even with this advantage the GOP could still find a way to lose the 2016 election.



On July 24, the day after John Russell Houser allegedly used a handgun to kill two people in Lafayette, Louisiana, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley called on Congress to ban “the sale of assault weapons” and “[establish] a national gun registry.”

He also said it is time to “[increase] inspections” on gun shops and mandate that gun owners lock up their guns in their homes.”

“Planned Parenthood official says no profit from fetal organs”

When I first viewed the undercover videos it occurred to me that it might not be Planned Parenthood that was selling fetal body parts to researchers. It might have just been the individual doctors who were overseeing abortion proceedings or actually doing them themselves. In the second video the doctor said she, ‘Wanted a Lamborghini’, which gave the impression that she was the one who was getting whatever money was generated.

Now, however, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards has taken the time to try to set the story straight. From the linked article:

The president of Planned Parenthood said her organization’s clinics never adjust the abortion procedure to better preserve fetal organs for medical research and that the organization’s charges cover only the cost of transmission to researchers.

Planned Parenthood has come under congressional scrutiny after the release of two stealthily recorded videos that showed officials discussing how they provide aborted fetal organs for research. Abortion opponents say the videos show the organization is illegally harvesting and selling organs. Three congressional committees are making inquiries.

Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards, said Sunday the group has done nothing illegal and is the target of a political smear campaign.

“I stand behind the health care that we provide at Planned Parenthood. Women trust Planned Parenthood,” Richards said. “And I look forward to anyone who wants to look into our policies and procedures.”

Cecile Richards

Cecile Richards

So she admits that these organ transfers have been taking place. She only has two arguments. First, that PPA only charged enough to, “… cover the cost of transmission to researchers.” It’s hard, after watching the videos, to justify that claim. The price per part was a negotiable item. Perhaps the doctors knew what, “… transmission costs”, were and were, themselves skimming the rest.

But that’s not true either. In the first video Dr. Nucatola said that there was really no transmission cost, that the representatives of Stem Express were in the operating room and doing the transfers so PPA’s employees didn’t have to.

Second, her tactic is not to defend the practice, but rather to attack the messenger, the Center for Medical Progress, which made the videos. Planned Parenthood’s supporters, without exception, say that the videos were deceptively edited but the CMP not only released the short versions, they also released the long, unedited, version.

Richards also defends the harvesting of fetal body parts as ‘Laudable’. I expect that Nazi Germany’s Dr. Josef Mengele also though his experiments were, ‘Laudable’.

NYT: “Looking Away From Abortion”

Ross Douthat has made a lot of people very uncomfortable with this essay.

Ross Douthat

Ross Douthat

He has a good understanding of the way most Americans see abortion and Planned Parenthood. He correctly observes that most don’t want to look at it too closely or their ambivalence might be attacked.

But in the end, Planned Parenthood’s defenders insist, listening to an abortionist discuss manipulating the “calvarium” (that is, the dying fetus’s skull) so that it emerges research-ready from the womb is fundamentally no different than listening to a doctor discuss heart surgery or organ transplants. It’s unsettling, yes, but just because it’s gross doesn’t prove it’s wrong.

Which is true, but in this case not really true enough. Because real knowledge isn’t purely theoretical; it’s the fruit of experience, recognition, imagination, life itself.

And the problem these videos create for Planned Parenthood isn’t just a generalized queasiness at surgery and blood.

It’s a very specific disgust, informed by reason and experience — the reasoning that notes that it’s precisely a fetus’s humanity that makes its organs valuable, and the experience of recognizing one’s own children, on the ultrasound monitor and after, as something more than just “products of conception” or tissue for the knife.

And then he gives us a fact that I did not know:

The pro-life sting was sweeping; there are reportedly 10 videos to go. You can turn away. But there will be plenty of chances to look, to see, to know.”

Baltimore Reaches 175 Homicides In 2015 – So Far

175 baltimore homicides

This data comes from the Baltimore Sun.

The Baltimore Sun reports total of 175 homicides, almost all murders in the first 204 days of 2015.

That is a rate of .854 homicides a day, or 312 a year, in a city that is offically at 623,00m but quite possibly has a remaining population below 600,000.

300 homicides with a population of 625,000 would be a homicide rate of 48 per 100,000, a rate three times that of Chicago. Obviously, Baltimore’s criminals have little or no fear of either arrest and prison; or of effective resistance by an intended victim.”

From Stranger

According to research on firearm restrictions, Maryland gun laws rank among the most stringent in the nation. That being said, many state officials feel more needs to be accomplished to further prevent dangerous individuals from maintaining access to guns.


Even with such strict restrictions on guns, Maryland routinely ranks among the most dangerous states in terms of violent crime statistics. One in every 156 citizens is the victim of a violent crime, while one in 11,427 is murdered.”

The Question Is, What Are YOU Going To Do About It?

This is from The Washington Post: “Angry protesters in Chattanooga: When’s the government going to do something?”

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Paula Proxmire was surrounded by screaming street preachers, angry protesters and unsettled mourners who had just arrived from Sunday church.

Her son, Petty Officer 2nd Class Randall Smith, 26, had died Saturday from wounds suffered in a shooting rampage here. The attacker was an aimless, depressed 24-year-old Muslim man whose online postings suggest he may have been motivated by radical Islamist movements.

Proxmire stood across from the bullet-riddled Armed Forces Recruiting Center, one of two military sites attacked by the gunman last week. She brushed back a strand of sweat-soaked hair and sobbed. Her son had been dead for barely one day. Around her people were screaming.

“I can’t believe these people even come here to this country!” one woman yelled. “Why do they come here?”

“Because they want to kill us,” a man answered.”

What is the government going to do about that? Nothing. This administration is practicing appeasement with those who want to kill us. They refuse to call the killers out for what they are: Killers for Muhammad. The government has no interest in preventing them from killing you or your loved ones. They do not have the manpower and their leaders don’t care.

If you want protection for you or your son or daughter, only you can provide it. Get used to it. We are at war with evil people, people who want to kill us.

“Sources: Navy officer, Marine fought to take out Chattanooga gunman”

LCDR Timothy White

LCDR Timothy White

This is from Navy Times:

A Navy officer and a Marine fired their sidearms hoping to kill or subdue the gunman who murdered five service members last week in Chattanooga, Tennessee, according to multiple military officials familiar with internal reporting on the tragedy.

It remains unclear whether either hit Muhammad Abdulazeez, who was shot and killed on July 16 after he gunned down four Marines and a sailor at the Navy Operational Support Center in Chattanooga. It’s also unclear why they were armed, as it is against Defense Department policy for anyone other than military police or law enforcement to carry weapons on federal property.”

“It remains unclear why they were armed.” It’s perfectly clear to me. If these men were licensed to carry they were doing what they believed to be their duty. It is unfortunate that five good people were killed but I would argue that trying to stop a man armed with two long guns and a pistol, with a heavy trigger finger and the element of surprise is not easy when you have only a pistol to do it with.

I wonder how these heroes will be disciplined.


General Wesley Clark Proposes Internment Camps For Disloyal Americans

For those of you who haven’t heard this already.

Progressive General Clark Shows his totalitarian side

Progressive General Clark Shows his totalitarian side

Clark was once a four-star General of the US Army. He ran for President in 2004 as a Democrat. He was involved in the siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas.

Like leftists everywhere he couches this argument in a discussion of Islamist terrorists. He does not use the term, ‘Islamic’, though, which leaves his internment camps available to use on anyone the government considers ‘Disloyal’.

This guy is scary. Progressives are the only political group that have ever used internment camps. They are a stain on the history of our country. Now we have this lizard proposing them again.

Let us see who repeats his proposal. The MSNBC host who interviewed him did not object to the idea.

Who would get to decide who is disloyal?

Internment camps. How many times have we been told it would never happen again?


Another Planned Parenthood Doctor Selling Fetus Parts Using ‘Less Crunchy’ Methods

This is Dr. Mary Gatter, President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director’s Council meeting with phony tissue buyers, again from the Center For Medical Progress. That’s the same group who filmed the previous video. Interestingly, the video begins with a clip of Planned Parenthood’s executive, Cecile Richards, denying that PPA sells fetus tissue. This sounds like individual doctors making extra money by doing this. Dr. Gatter admits that she will get the money at the end when she says, “I’d like to get a Lamborghini”.

In this second video, shot in February at a restaurant in Pasadena, Gatter seems willing to accept a higher and higher price.

What’s more, in the beginning of the video, she talks about an earlier situation where a company called Novogenix used to come to her abortion clinic to buy specimens: “Heather, a Novogenix person would come to the site and our staff would sign the patients up and get consent. And then Heather would look at the tissue and take what she required. So logistically it was very easy for us. We didn’t have to do anything.”


The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

Novogenix has a website. They claim they are, “Delivering Human Primary Tissue-Specific Stem Cells for Your Discovery”.

“Cis Drag Queens Banned from Pride Event Because They Might Offend Trans People”

The organizers of Free Pride Glasgow in Scotland have hit a snag in their mission to plan a totally inclusive event: Some activists think drag queens are offensive to transgender people, others think banning drag queens is offensive to transgender drag queens, and still others think allowing only transgender drag queens is offensive to cisgender drag queens.


Although drag performances had been part of Free Pride Glasgow for years, the event organizers announced in a statement on Saturday that they would not be allowing them this year because some transgender individuals found “some drag performance, particularly cis drag,” to be offensive because it “hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke.”

Martin O’Malley Is A Coward.

He gives in to Black Militants. According to them he is not Allowed to say that all lives matter or that white lives matter. He Must only say that black lives matter.

The young woman here is determined to get a contender to the Presidency to grovel before her – and she gets it.

There are three things about this. First, the black militant movement will take this as a win and an indication that they should push further.

Second, it shows that O’Malley doesn’t have what it takes to be a leader. He gives in to any pressure from leftist interest groups. That is not how you lead. It is how you fail – and we can look at Baltimore and Maryland under his ‘Leadership’ to see how they have declined.

Third, it shows that Democrats are being scrutinized by the far left and found wanting. They are too wishy-washy. It’s why Bernie Sanders is packing the house.
