Via NY Daily News

The city’s top elected officials are going to bat for embattled Planned Parenthood.

All four city-wide elected officials have made videos in support of Planned Parenthood, with Mayor de Blasio accusing “anti-abortion extremists” of attacking the health care operator.

A grim De Blasio said he will fight to make sure Planned Parenthood remains protected.

“Once again, Planned Parenthood has come under attack by anti-abortion extremists,” de Blasio says in his minute- long video, released on Friday.

“Opponents of the organization deceive the public, make false changes, and intimidate women and their doctors in the hope of banning all legal abortion and cutting women off from critically needed healthcare.”

The anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress has released four videos in which Planned Parenthood employees appear to be negotiating the price of fetal tissue, used for research.

Planned Parenthood has said they don’t make a profit off the tissue, but are reimbursed for costs.

Texas College Disciplines Student For Facebook Comments About Baltimore Riots

Screen Shot 2015-08-01 at 10.38.46 AM

This is more than a little scary, by this standard, anything anyone finds offensive can qualify as ’emotional harm’. Good on the student for making the Constitutional point.

DALLAS — A Texas Christian University student has been disciplined after posting online comments seen as racially offensive about current events, including rioting in Baltimore and the rise of the Islamic State, TCU officials said Friday.
TCU said Harry Vincent, a 19-year-old sophomore, violated two Student Code of Conduct provisions concerning “infliction of bodily or emotional harm” and “disorderly conduct.”

He has seen his campus access restricted by receiving a one-year suspension from extracurricular activities, on-campus living and the use of non-academic facilities such as the cafeteria and recreational center.

Justice Kennedy Takes On Justice Scalia Over Same-Sex Marriage In Speech To Utah Lawyers…

Social justice is becoming the law of the land.

Via KSTU

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy appeared to make subtle references to his historic ruling on same-sex marriage during a speech on the evolution of the law.

Addressing the Utah State Bar’s annual convention at the resort on Thursday, Justice Kennedy spoke primarily on the history of the Magna Carta, the founding document that established the rule of law 800 years ago.

“For you young people, I know on your next date or get-together, you’re going to talk about Magna Carta,” he joked to the standing room-only crowd. “You’re going to look really cool.”

FOX 13 was allowed to attend the speech, but video and audio recordings were not allowed.

Justice Kennedy said the Magna Carta was seminal in the United States’ evolution of its constitutional identity.

“The Constitution doesn’t come from on high. It’s yours!” he told the crowd. “It doesn’t belong to judges and lawyers. It’s yours! It came from you. This is the meaning of the Magna Carta.”

Throughout his remarks on how the Magna Carta influenced the U.S. Constitution, he referred to “evolution.”

“Remember that Constitutions take time. We have to learn. If the framers had known all of the specifics, all of the rudiments, all of the elements of a just society they would have put them down,” he said. “They used spacious words: life, liberty, property. They didn’t presume to know or predict all of the injustices that a society might encounter over time.”[…]

Other attorneys in the room believed Justice Kennedy’s remarks about the U.S. Supreme Court acting as a voice for the minority was a rebuttal to dissents over his ruling in Obergefell.

“I think he actually took on Scalia’s opinion in that case directly,” said Kate Conyers, a public defender and incoming Utah State Bar Commissioner.

“I think his point is eventually it reflects the will of the majority,” said Michelle Mumford, a civil litigation attorney and incoming Bar Commissioner. “I think right now it’s perhaps still a minority position but not for long.”

Desperate Democrats Recycle Planned Parenthood Mammogram Meme

Wheels spinning in the mud

Via Townhall.com:

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. U.S. 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.

Members Of Bin Laden Family Die In Private Plane Crash…

Family members of former Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden were killed in a private plane crash in southern England, a Saudi ambassador said on Saturday, without identifying the dead.

Prince Mohammed Bin Nawaf Bin Abdel-Aziz, the Saudi ambassador to Britain, offered his condolences to the wealthy bin Laden family, who own a major construction company in Saudi Arabia.

“The embassy will follow up on the incident and its circumstances with the concerned British authorities and work on speeding up the handover of the bodies of the victims to the kingdom for prayer and burial,” the ambassador said in a statement tweeted by the embassy late Friday.

The crash occurred Friday, when an Embraer Phenmo 300 jet tried to land at Blackbusche Airport, an airfield used by private planes and flying clubs some 40 miles southwest of London. The UK Daily Telegraph reported the plane overshot the runway and clipped a fence before nosediving into a car auction center and bursting into flames. British authorities said four people were killed in the crash.

Witness Barry Wright told the BBC that the plane “went up in a ball of flames in about 60 seconds.”

“It sounded like a missile coming in – very loud, followed by several explosions,” he said.

A pair of centrist Senate Democrats are weighing their options ahead of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s scheduled vote on defunding Planned Parenthood, a politically thorny decision following the release of several controversial videos allegedly showing employees for the women’s health care organization discussing the sale of fetal tissue.

On Friday, Planned Parenthood turned up the pressure on moderate Democrat Joe Donnelly of Indiana, releasing a television ad touting the life-saving benefits of the women’s health organization in his red state.

San Francisco Federal Judge Blocks Release Of Recordings By Pro-Life Group…

PP Hearts

Update to this story.

Via WISTV

A federal judge on Friday blocked the release of any recordings made at meetings of an abortion providers’ association by an anti-abortion group that previously revealed secretly recorded videos of a Planned Parenthood leader.

Judge William Orrick in San Francisco issued a temporary restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.

In his three-page order, Orrick said the federation would likely suffer irreparable injury absent a temporary restraining order “in the form of harassment, intimidation, violence, invasion of privacy, and injury to reputation.”

The National Abortion Federation sued in federal court in San Francisco, alleging the Center for Medical Progress infiltrated its meetings and recorded its members. The group says release of any audio or video would put members in danger.

“The safety and security of our members is our top priority,” Vicki Saporta, association president and CEO, said in a statement. “That security has been compromised by the illegal activities of a group with ties to those who believe it is justifiable to murder abortion providers.”

David Daleiden, a leader of the Center for Medical Progress who is also named in the suit, said in a statement that Planned Parenthood and its allies were trying to silence the group and suppress investigative journalism.

“The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work and will contest all attempts from Planned Parenthood and their allies to silence our First Amendment rights,” he said.

The center has released several secretly recorded videos that have riled anti-abortion activists, including one Thursday of a Planned Parenthood doctor in Colorado. It has accused Planned Parenthood of selling fetal tissue for profit, which is illegal, and Republicans in Congress have begun discussing cutting off funding for the organization.

The undercover video released Thursday shows Dr. Savita Ginde, vice president of Denver-based Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, discussing prices of aborted fetal remains, the center says. Planned Parenthood issued a statement calling the video “misleading and deceptively edited.”

Special Hillary Aide, Huma Overpaid For Vacations And Sick Time At State Department…

Another phony right wing conspiracy.

Via FOX News

One of Hillary Clinton’s top aides was reportedly overpaid by nearly $10,000 because of violations of rules that govern vacation and sick time during her time as an official in the State Department, according to investigators.

The Washington Post reports the finding emerged on Friday after Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley sent letters to Secretary of State John Kerry, among others, about an investigation into possible “criminal” conduct by Huma Abedin over her pay.

The letters also sought the status of an investigation into whether Abedin violated conflict-of-interest laws related to her work for the State Department, the Clinton Foundation and another private firm founded by a Clinton ally, according to The Post.

The finding that Abedin, who now serves as vice chairwoman of her presidential campaign, had improperly collected taxpayer money could damage Clinton’s candidacy, a GOP lawmakers insist that government rules were bent to benefit Clinton and her aides and at the same time could bolster Democratic claims that Republicans are using their oversight role to purposely damage Clinton politically.

The Post reports that Grassley indicated in the letters he was describing an inquiry by the State Department’s Inspector General. Grassley wrote, in letters to Abedin, Kerry and the Inspector General, that staff of the inspector general had found “at least a reasonable suspicion of a violation” of law concerning the “theft of public money through time and attendance fraud” and possible conflicts to Abedin’s “overlapping employment,” according to the newspaper.

Planned Parenthood Received Millions After Lobbying Hillary Clinton’s State Department

Major stories suddenly converge…

Via Free Beacon:

Planned Parenthood lobbied the Department of State many times during Hillary Clinton’s tenure there and received tens of millions of dollars from foreign policy agencies over the past few years, according to a new report.

As secretary of state, Clinton attacked the Mexico City Policy, which bans federal funding of abortion overseas. Her husband revoked the policy during his administration and President Obama lifted the ban upon taking office in 2009. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which is tied to the State Department, steered more than $100 million in funding to Planned Parenthood, its international affiliates, and the pro-abortion Population Council between 2010 and 2012, according to the Government Accountability Office—about 20 percent of the nearly $500 million pro-abortion organizations received from taxpayers during that time frame.

Jeb: Obama ‘Speaking The Truth’ On Racial Injustice

Jeb Bush

How does this guy have any support at all with the things he says?

Via Breitbart:

Friday in Fort Lauderdale, FL at the National Urban League Conference, Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said President Barack Obama is “speaking the truth” on racial injustice.

Bush said, “When President Obama says that ‘for too long we’ve been blind to the way past injustices continue to shape the present,’ he is speaking the truth. But we should be just as candid about our failures in addressing injustices of the more recent origin. In our cities we’ve got so many people that have never known anything but poverty is. So many young adults with no vision of a life beyond the life they know. It’s a tragedy for them in such a loss to our country because everyone has a God-given purpose to live out and God-given talents this world needs. Every one of them was also promised one-day break in life in the form of a public school to help them learn who they are and what they can do. For millions it is a false promise as technology advances, the first rung of the ladder is higher and higher and higher. If we don’t create an education system that allows young people to reach it, we are setting them up for a lifetime of failure. You and I have to call the situation what it is. The worst inequality in America today and the source of so many other inequalities. I want to work with the Urban League movement to end this injustice once and for all.”

Baltimore Killings Soar To A Level Unseen In 43 Years

Screen Shot 2015-07-31 at 8.18.57 PM

You’re racist if you dare talk about this.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore reached a grim milestone on Friday, three months after riots erupted in response to the death of Freddie Gray in police custody: With 45 homicides in July, the city has seen more bloodshed in a single month than it has in 43 years.

Police reported three deaths — two men shot Thursday and one on Friday. The men died at local hospitals.

With their deaths, this year’s homicides reached 189, far outpacing the 119 killings by July’s end in 2014. Nonfatal shootings have soared to 366, compared to 200 by the same date last year. July’s total was the worst since the city recorded 45 killings in August 1972, according to The Baltimore Sun.

The seemingly Sisyphean task of containing the city’s violence prompted Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to fire her police commissioner, Anthony Batts, on July 8.

“Too many continue to die on our streets,” Rawlings-Blake said then. “Families are tired of dealing with this pain, and so am I. Recent events have placed an intense focus on our police leadership, distracting many from what needs to be our main focus: the fight against crime.”

But the killings have not abated under Interim Commissioner Kevin Davis since then.

Baltimore is not unique in its suffering; crimes are spiking in big cities around the country.

But while the city’s police are closing cases— Davis announced arrests in three recent murders several days ago — the violence is outpacing their efforts. Davis said Tuesday the “clearance rate” is at 36.6 percent, far lower than the department’s mid-40s average.

Crime experts and residents of Baltimore’s most dangerous neighborhoods cite a confluence of factors: mistrust of the police; generalized anger and hopelessness over a lack of opportunities for young black men; and competition among dealers of illegal drugs, bolstered by the looting of prescription pills from pharmacies during the riot.

Federal drug enforcement agents said gangs targeted 32 pharmacies in the city, taking roughly 300,000 doses of opiates, as the riots caused $9 million in property damage in the city.

Michigan Zoo Removes Carousel Horse With Confederate Flag…

Replaced by a unicorn with a rainbow flag. (Sarcasm)

Via WNEM

Mid-Michigan is definitely not somewhere where you would expect to hear about the controversial Confederate flag.

But here at the Saginaw children’s zoo, some complaints came in about a horse on the carousel, which was painted years ago to depict history.

Many argue, it’s just an image of history – what’s the big deal? Well for some, this is a symbol of hatred and racism. And officials from the zoo say they are not a museum and are not obligated to display items that depict history, especially is those depictions offend some of its clients.

“The carousel is all based on history. If you look at the running boards, all that, it’s all Saginaw history. But we’re not a museum, we’re a zoo, and we really are a community place, and we really are a public place. So we really want the community to come in here and be comfortable. It’s very different than being in a museum.”

This is actually going to be a quick fix: the horse with the confederate flag on it will simply be repainted.
