The Pending Implosion of Planned Parenthood (Hopefully) – Finally Dealing with the Abortion Giant Everyone Thought Was Too Big to Fall

leave a comment »

…Because the headlines would be a disaster.

(meme creator unknown)

(meme creator unknown)

The damning undercover videos keep coming out one after another after another after another, exposing some pretty seedy insider secrets of the lumbering abortion giant, Planned Parenthood.

This week video #10 was published, and if there was any doubt before what was really going on under the table, so-to-speak, and that the trade of organs and tissues was a profitable one for Planned Parenthood (which, btw, is against federal law), there isn’t now. At least, to anyone with the ability to exercise their critical thinking skills.

Federal law plainly states, (a)Purchase of tissue – It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly acquire, receive, or otherwise transfer any human fetal tissue for valuable consideration…”  42 U.S. Code 289G-2.

Representatives from big within the organization basically admitted that their sale of fetal child organs and tissues (Gonads! OMG the Gonads!) IS PROFITABLE, and that it goes on in a very discreet manner – everything done in carefully timed conversations with nothing written down, figuring out how to skirt the law, no official policy written down – as one representative said, “That’s all by design”, and another admitted, “It would be a… PR issue” should the information get out to the public, and another speaking the dreaded prophecy that, “… the headlines would be a disaster.”

No Kidding. Ya think?

The progressive left is in full conniption mode if I’ve ever seen them in one – bloggers and commenters claiming that the videos were proven faked (by who?) and doctored and whatnot and those horrible “tea baggers” are trying to take us back to the 1950’s and take away women’s rights and that Republicans must just hate women… ad hominem ad nauseam.

Faked? Really? In journalism that’s what normal people call editing for continuity and for brevity. In what world can any investigative reporter bring a full length, uncut film into a television news network and have them show all 100 hours or however many hours the original, uncut video segments are?  You know, so we don’t have to hear the investigator’s pants rubbing at the thighs as he is walking down the hall or going to the restroom to pee and whatnot. We also don’t have to hear a lot of conversation that is not relevant to the subject matter. All that being said, even the firm hired by Planned Parenthood (which also happens to be the Democratic opposition research firm, Fusion GPS… eh-hem) stated that there was no “widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation.” In other words… THE VIDEOS WEREN’T FAKED. Sooooooo…

The hypocrisy of the progressive left – who usually start riots or wipe their butts with the American Flag when big corporations and banks break the law – have the audacity to come to the defense of these profiteers of human flesh. It’s just so macabre. I’d like to think that it’s just a movie and I’ll be able to go to the box office to get my money back after the credits start to roll, but this is real, and I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around such an immense, slime-filled, alligator infested moat of cognitive dissonance and vitriol.

Thankfully this legislation (HR 3134) will hopefully put the kibosh on these under-the-public-radar dealings has been put to a vote in the House and passed with bipartisan approval. Hopefully the Senate will follow suit. However, HR 3134 only FREEZES funding for Planned Parenthood for one year. It doesn’t defund it permanently, which (in my opinion) is a grave mistake. There is no incentive for this heinous practice to stop permanently, either. If an entity as big as Planned Parenthood could keep up the illegal sale of human body parts for what some are estimating to be 15 years, what makes anyone think they can permanently stop them by taking a little funding away for a year?

Do the People’s representatives in Washington at LEAST have the human decency to look at the video evidence – blatant evidence of illegal activity in the trade of actual human flesh, as well as some of the most horrendous and callous acts violence against our most innocent and helpless that are implied on those videos – and actually DO something about it this time? Like, oh… I don’t know… PROSECUTE THEM?

We will see.

BREAKING: President Obama Invokes Executive Privilege to withhold Fast and Furious Documents From Congress. Seriously.

BREAKING: President Obama Invokes Executive Privilege to withhold Fast and Furious Documents From Congress.

Seriously.

HUNDREDS of Mexican citizens and at least one U.S. Border agent dead, and Eric Holder knows the details, and everyone (the public, or at least the ones who have been TOLD about it from their trusty reporters) wants to know why, but the current administration is hiding the documents from the public. Right before an election.

Question: WIll the liberal main stream media FINALLY get the clue and start asking the tough questions instead of fawning all over him like he’s a rock star?

Nixon also invoked Executive Privilege to withhold the audio tapes from evidence during the Watergate investigation, as did Clinton, at least 14 times during his terms in office. Not to be excluded, the Bush administration also invoked this privilege only 6 times, though the treatment of these incidents were numbered out individually in detail for several long paragraphs by the Wikipedia, while the Clinton administration’s use of the privilege was relegated to a mere four or five sentences.

I trust the update today in this wiki section (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_privilege#Obama_administration) about the Obama administration’s invocation will be expanded to include the details of the Fast and Furious operation and the hundreds of lives that were sacrificed because of it.

‘OnStar’ May STILL Be Tracking You…

leave a comment »

If you own a newer vehicle you may have included an ‘OnStar’ service. Good for you (if you can afford it in this economy). It’s one of the many cool gadgets and services that are all the rage in a tech savvy world.

But what happens when you decide you don’t want that extra bill to pay? Well, just try and unsubscribe… but don’t count on them quitting their surveillance of your whereabouts. There’s just too much money in it for them to keep track of you.

According to OnStar’s TOS (Terms Of Service), you must actually personally contact OnStar to opt out of their tracking ‘service’, because even if you have stopped paying their bill, they continue to track your actions in your vehicle and share that information with ‘third parties’.

If OnStar were a boyfriend, wouldn’t that qualify as stalking?

Arizona Court Decision S.B. 1070: Does anyone ever READ the Constitution anymore??

leave a comment »

Arizona - The Grand Canyon State - State Motto: (Latin) Ditat Deus ~ "God Enriches"

I’m not real sure why Governor Brewer has not asked that the ‘decision’ against them by an Arizona judge over their new illegal immigration law be thrown out on grounds that said court does not have jurisdiction over the State of Arizona. Only the Supreme Court does.

In contrast to the Supreme Court, which was established by Article III of the Constitution, the district courts were established by Congress. There is no constitutional requirement that there be any district courts at all.

(Source: Wikipedia – District Courts)

Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution says:

In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction…

Check out Federalist No. 81 (13th para), Alexander Hamilton comments on Art. III, Sec. 2, clause 2:

…Let us now examine in what manner the judicial authority is to be distributed between the supreme and the inferior courts of the Union. The Supreme Court is to be invested with original jurisdiction, only “in cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers, and consuls, and those in which A STATE shall be a party.” Public ministers of every class are the immediate representatives of their sovereigns. All questions in which they are concerned are so directly connected with the public peace, that, as well for the preservation of this, as out of respect to the sovereignties they represent, it is both expedient and proper that such questions should be submitted in the first instance to the highest judicatory of the nation. Though consuls have not in strictness a diplomatic character, yet as they are the public agents of the nations to which they belong, the same observation is in a great measure applicable to them. In cases in which a State might happen to be a party, it would ill suit its dignity to be turned over to an inferior tribunal….”

Frankly I wonder if this would also apply to Prop 8 in California since both Judge Susan Bolton (AZ) and Judge Vaughn Walker (CA) are just U.S. District judges… Another really good reason our nation’s leaders need to read and understand the U.S. Constitution. Oh, if they only felt the document was actually applicable today.
