Censorship from black robed social justice warriors.

A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers. The group is the same one that previously shot viral covert video of a Planned Parenthood leader discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research.
The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking StemExpress officials taken at a restaurant in May. It appears to be the first legal action prohibiting the release of a video from the organization.
The Center for Medical Progress has released three surreptitiously recorded videos to date that have riled anti-abortion activists. The Senate is expected to vote before its August recess on a Republican effort to bar federal aid to Planned Parenthood in the aftermath of the videos’ release.
In a statement Wednesday, center leader David Daleiden said StemExpress was using “meritless litigation” to cover up an “illegal baby parts trade.”
“The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work,” he said.
StemExpress is a Placerville-based company started in 2010 that provides human tissue, blood and other specimens to researchers. Planned Parenthood is one of the company’s providers of fetal tissue.

And yet she still looks like a deer caught in the head lights. Of course, that might have to do with her lying more than her hair…
Hillary Clinton recently received a haircut priced at $600 from a stylist at the John Barrett Salon inside of Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.
The New York Post reported that Clinton’s visit to the Fifth Avenue shop Friday shut down portions of the store, its elevators, and the salon, which typically charges $600 for a haircut and blow dry–nearly 14 times what the average American woman pays for a cut–and an additional $600 for hair color treatment.
Vast right wing conspiracy to the rescue
Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Pa.), who was indicted by the Department of Justice on Wednesday morning and received charges of fraud, bribery, and money laundering, said earlier this year that he longed for the days when Bill Clinton was in the White House.
Politico spoke with Fattah in a piece about Democrats in Congress who felt alienated by President Barack Obama’s White House. He said that his relationship with the White House during the Clinton presidency was different:
Philadelphia Democratic Rep. Chaka Fattah, who was elected in 1994, described Bill Clinton’s relationships on the Hill as “extraordinary.”
Welcome to the 7th century
BTW: This is costing us $500 million
On Monday I reported here at PJ Media that the first 50 graduates of Obama’s U.S.-trained “vetted moderate” Syrian rebel army had left Turkey for Syria two weeks ago — and haven’t been heard from since.
But today comes a new report that a fresh class of U.S.-trained recruits were arrested today upon entering Syria.
Tanir links to this Turkish Sputnik News report that says Jabhat al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria, arrested the 18 U.S.-trained members of Obama’s “vetted moderate” rebel army for being American agents.
This is just the latest embarrassing episode for Obama’s $500 million anti-ISIS army approved by congressional Republicans back in September.
And despite having spent half of those funds already, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter revealed to Congress earlier this month that only 60 fighters had been trained so far. This amounts to $4 million per fighter.
Which is such a stupid accusation even Whoopi Goldberg felt compelled to defend Hasselbeck.
Fox & Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck has been taking some heat over the past couple of days for asking a former NYPD officer if Sandra Bland, who died in jail of an alleged suicide, could have used her lit cigarette as a weapon against the officer who arrested her. Wednesday morning, The View’s Whoopi Goldberg defended her “buddy” and former co-host against accusations of “racism.”
“Somehow, it’s no longer OK to pose a question that will give you an answer in order to best understand what’s going on,” Goldberg said, after playing the clip. “We’ve been friends for about seven, eight years and she has not asked me to pick any cotton.”
“People love to throw that phrase around, ‘You’re a racist, you’re this, you’re that,’” she added. “It is not racist to ask a question.”
Similarly, Raven-Symoné said, “There’s a lot of people of color that feel like white people shouldn’t ask certain questions because they don’t understand it and they don’t feel like you’re being sensitive to it, and I don’t think that’s fair.”
Dem Senator Sheldon Whitehouse on the Senate floor today:
Oddly enough, no calls by McCollum to investigate Planned Parenthood
WASHINGTON — The Internet exploded in outrage this week after it was revealed that a Minnesota tourist killed a beloved lion while on a hunting expedition in Zimbabwe. That indignation reached Capitol Hill yesterday, as 4th District Rep. Betty McCollum was quick to call for justice for the protected African lion, fondly referred to as Cecil the Lion.
In a statement released yesterday, McCollum denounced the actions of Walter Palmer, a dentist from Eden Prairie, who may have paid as much as $50,000 to participate in the guided hunt in Zimbabwe. Palmer and his guides allegedly lured the lion out of a protected area in order to kill it, a move that critics, including McCollum, call illegal.
“To bait and kill a threatened animal, like this African lion, for sport cannot be called hunting, but rather a disgraceful display of callous cruelty,” McCollum said. Palmer says he was not aware that the lion was a protected animal, and regrets what happened.
