“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.”

Rasmussen Polling To See If Obama Would Win Third Term

Apparently I am not the only one who read into Obama’s remarks to African leaders that he could win a third term if he ran. Rasmussen Reports has done the initial polling to determine if, in fact, he might win a third term.

rasmussen reports

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 30% of Likely U.S. Voters say they would vote for the president if he ran for a third term. Sixty-three percent (63%) would not. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Most Democrats (57%) would vote to give Obama a third term. Ninety-three percent (93%) of Republicans, 68% of voters not affiliated with either major party – and 32% of Democrats – would not.”

If he tried who would stop him? The DOJ? The Congress? The courts? I don’t see anyone out there who would fight to enforce the Constitutional limit on Presidential terms. Apparently neither does Rasmussen – or Obama.

“U.S. intel fears hundreds of secrets leaked in Hillary’s private emails”

Hillary-Scandals

The U.S. intelligence community is bracing for the possibility that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private email account contains hundreds of revelations of classified information from spy agencies and is taking steps to contain any damage to national security, according to documents and interviews Thursday.

The top lawmakers on the House and Senate intelligence committee have been notified in recent days that the extent of classified information on Mrs. Clinton’s private email server was likely far more extensive than the four emails publicly acknowledged last week as containing some sensitive spy agency secrets.”

Puff Ho: “Ted Cruz Just Disqualified Himself for President”

Sometimes it is enlightening to read a leftist blog. So many of the writers there are obsessed with Conservatives, especially effective ones, that they Have to write stupid things. This is an example.

Left-wing writers claim to have the insight necessary to tell voters who does or does not appear to be ‘Presidential’ enough. They love to pick on Senator Cruz. They refer to him as today’s Joe McCarthy, the Wisconsin Senator who made a career out of warning the world about Communism. Of course that reference is hyperbole. But that is what Puff-Ho writers and MSNBC talking heads do.

It’s enlightening to take small doses of their crap in order to learn just who they fear the most.

When he was Majority Leader, Harry Reid called Ted Cruz a “schoolyard bully” on the Senate floor. I won’t go that far, because I don’t know the man personally; I’ve never spoken to him, and it would be unfair for me to characterize someone in such a personal fashion without doing so. But I will reiterate something that I wrote last March: Sen. Cruz is not qualified to be President of the United States. It’s not because he’s a bully or a relatively inexperienced senator compared to colleagues that have been legislating for the past several decades (President Obama, after all, was only in the U.S. Senate for less than four years). He isn’t fit to be President because his behavior over the past several weeks has been anything but presidential: calling his party leader a “lair” during a floor speech (something that he had to walk back as he was criticized by senior GOP senators for his conduct), misquoting witnesses during Senate hearings, and refusing to acknowledge that there are some things in this world (like the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) that require level-headed, cool and calculated analysis.”

“Huma Abedin Investigated For “Fraud” Including “Theft Of Public Money” “

Another card in Hillary Clinton’s deck of questionable and illegal dealings. How can she possibly weather another crisis indicating poor judgement and improper actions? This is just what you get when a self-centered person who has no qualifications other than having married a President of the United States tries to become President herself. She has lived a life of deceit and lies and has never learned how to make a good, reasoned, decision. She is impulsive and unaware. She does stupid things and doesn’t know they were stupid.

Hillary Clinton Has Never Learned How To Make A Good Decision

The State Department concluded this year that Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s closest aides had committed violations of rules governing vacation and sick leave during her tenure as an official in the department. Abedin, as Shoebat has extensively documented her links and ties to Wahhabists including the Muslim Brotherhood.

The finding — which Abedin has formally contested — emerged publicly Friday after Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) sent letters to Secretary of State John F. Kerry and others seeking more information about an investigation into possible “criminal” conduct by Abedin concerning her pay.”

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…

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”

Sharing

Sharing

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.

Pro-Life-Generation-Dan-Fleuette-640x480

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:

“WHAT WE ARE DOING AND WHY”

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”

1060x600-c_1001fb8d95c5722bed5ba9727945471e

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.

“Hillary Operatives Brace for “Clinton Collapse” – Complain of Frequent Mood Swings and Erratic Behavior”

hillary pissed

Hillary Clinton operatives are bracing for the inevitable “Clinton collapse.”

Hillary handlers are concerned about her frequent mood swings and erratic behavior.
The DC Whispers reported, via Free Republic:

[…]

A D.C. Whispers source had this to say regarding Mrs. Clinton’s view of the modern media:

“She doesn’t understand how it works. She still thinks the New York Times is the end-all, be-all regarding media coverage and because they (the Clinton Machine) pretty much control how the Times covers them, she feels she controls her own media destiny and when that doesn’t happen, it infuriates her. She gets very angry very quickly and it’s a particularly aggressive kind of nasty on her part.”

Candidate Clinton’s mood swings have become so erratic even those closest to her campaign are said to be hoping for the best while preparing for what some perceive to be the inevitable worst.”

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.”

“Obama Releases the ‘Unified Agenda’ and the Slide to Hell Begins!”

This is from Investment Watch Blog.

BO has published his “Unified Agenda” report. This is government-speak (Orwellian ‘newspeak’) for “You are f*cked”.

For government wonks–here is the direct link to the BO agenda:

http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAgendaMain

Below is a highlighted version of just some of the “transformation” events that we have left for the next 18 months. It is staggering. America is gone–at least most parts of America that we are familiar.

The basic parts of the constitutional protections that make us America will either be gone or compromised so severely we will not recognize it.

[…]

Due to Obama’s relaxation of border security and immigration enforcement, the nearly 12 million people who have crossed our borders without any type of visa have now been granted quasi-legal protections. Therefore, under 1140-AA08, this massive population is free to import arms and ammunition without any oversight after entering the country.

These rules are bizarre contradictions for an administration whose effort to deny Americans their birthright to bear arms has been a political hallmark. Even before Obama began fighting gun ownership from the White House, he demonstrated unwavering opposition to an Illinois bill that affirmed a person’s right to protect against home invasion using a firearm. Likewise, Eric Holder famously called for Americans to be “brainwashed” into an anti-gun mindset (see video) and led the Justice Department as it conspired to kill the Second Amendment by exploiting the inevitable fallout from Operation Fast and Furious.

While resolute in the effort to disarm Americans, the 2015 Unified Agenda is evidence that both Obama and Holder have for years been simultaneously working to grant illegal immigrants and non-citizens unprecedented access to loosely controlled firearms. To understand these otherwise inexplicable rules, they must be put in context with the policies concerning immigration and trade handed down to Obama from previous presidents.”

Never Underestimate Senator Ted Cruz

Yesterday Senator Cruz did something new. He took to the floor of the Senate And called the Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell a liar. In doing so he has challenged the leader of the Senate. One can not overstate the gamble he took by doing this.

Expect the coining of a new term: ‘Mitchslap’. McConnell will do everything in his power now to destroy Senator Cruz – and he has a lot of power. Cruz knows it, too. The level of chutzpah it would take to do what Cruz did is incalculable – especially in politics.

From the Washington Examiner:

In a stunning floor speech Friday morning, Republican presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz accused Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of lying to Senate Republicans about whether there was a secret agreement to allow a vote on an amendment to extend the Export-Import Bank, which conservatives staunchly oppose.”

Cruz said, ““Like Saint Peter, he repeated it three times”. He also compared McConnell to former Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Acts like this by Cruz are last-ditch acts of either bravery or stupidity, depending how they turn out. He has risked his entire political future.

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.”

WASHINGTON — Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.

The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton’s private account contained “hundreds of potentially classified emails.” The memo was written to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management.”
