Random links of interest, concern or curiosity from the past week or so, that deserve at least a SHORT mention:
Let’s begin with latest on the Planned Parenthood horror-fest – which the media is doing its darnedest to spin or ignore completely:
#BlackLivesMatter but not at Planned Parenthood ~ Hard to believe but as a 2014 study found – in New York City alone – 20% more black babies were aborted than were born. (Margaret Sanger would be thrilled!)
Refreshingly, here’s a black Ohio state representative who’s courageously standing up to his Democrat party to get the truth out ~ Democratic Lawmaker: ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protesters Should Be in Front of Planned Parenthoods
“Five thousand, four hundred and ninety-nine abortions are in Cuyahoga County, which I happen to represent,” (Bill) Patmon said in a speech Tuesday. “And 63 percent of them are black women, 63 percent of them are of a certain hue of their skin.”
“You hear a lot of demonstrations across the country now, about black lives matter,” Patmon added. “Well, they skipped one place. They should be in front of Planned Parenthood.”
Planned Parenthood President Made 39 Visits To Obama’s White House Since 2009 Can you say “collusion?”
The newest outrage – just yesterday afternoon – appears to be a violation of the 1st Amendment and is further evidence of the totalitarian nature of the Obama regime ~
Obama Appointee And Bundler Blocks More Video Releases By Group Behind Planned Parenthood Sting ~ Apparently the next video that the cleverly-named Center for Medical Progress was set to release may include proof that the agency is actually selling fully intact babies to Stem Express ~
David Daleiden, the journalist behind the Center for Medical Progress videos, told CNN earlier today that the reason why Stem Express filed suit against release of a video of their meeting with him is because they admitted to receiving fully intact fetuses from abortion clinics. Daleiden said those conversations may have shown “prima facie evidence of born-alive infants.”
But now, the federal judge, William H. Orrick, III – coincidentally appointed by partial-birth-abortion advocate Barack Hussein Obama – granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers, which are included in this next video.
Which brings us to this excellent article by Ben Shapiro ~
Evil In America ~ Confronting evil first demands that you recognize it for what it is. Americans need to wake up to that reality again ~
For Planned Parenthood, as for leftists and their head-in-the-sand allies throughout America, babies are less than the sum of their parts. For the Obama administration, as for its allies, threats to Jews can be dismissed as irrational byproducts of religious fanaticism, rather than as core goals of an immensely barbaric regime. All of these accessories to evil convince themselves that euphemistic thinking will bring harmony.
Turning a blind eye to evil, however, doesn’t make it disappear. It allows it to grow. And those who allow evil to grow in order to protect their own convenience will be held accountable for the end results of the evil they facilitate.
Prince Charles extends climate doomsday deadline by 33 years ~ Whew! I was really getting worried, but thanks to eminent climate scientist Charles Philip Arthur George Mountbatten-Windsor, there’s no need to panic just yet ~
Prince Charles is warning that there are only 35 years left to save the planet from climate disaster, which represents a 33-year extension of his previous deadline.
Never mind the fact that AGW is The Biggest Fraud In History.
Kenya Rejects Obama’s Gay Rights Lecture ~ Well, they did warn him ~
“The fact of the matter is that Kenya, the United States, we share so many values, but there are some things that we must admit we don’t share — our culture, our society don’t accept,” President Uhuru Kenyatta said.
“This is why I repeatedly say that for Kenyans today, the issue of gay rights is really a non-issue,” he continued. “We want to focus on other areas that are day-to-day living for our people.” [...]
“Of course, the way President Obama talked about gays and what have you, lesbianism or transgender, whatever, according to him, you know, we took him as an American. He was answering like an American,” Nairobi resident Ibrahim Lincoln said. “But according to our African cultures, the Christian beliefs — we say no.”
Still Blind to the Costs of Illegal Immigration ~ Establishment pols just don’t get it, but the populism of Donald Trump is giving voice to millions of regular legal Americans ~
Trump’s rapid climb to the top of the polls, at least for now, reflects a widespread anger with establishment Republicans who refuse to tell the truth about the costs of illegal immigration. Trump’s fans are sick of their reasonable complaints being dismissed as the bigotry or stupidity of “crazies,” as John McCain called them, or as the bitter tantrums of the narrow-minded fearful of change. They are very much like the New Yorkers of the 70s, who finally had enough of bums, punks, criminals, hookers, welfare freeloaders, and all the other detritus that made New York the dystopia of Taxi Driver and Death Wish.
With Apologies to Donald Trump for the Crazy ‘Nativist’ Rant of Cardinal Dolan ~ Fr. Marcel Guarnizo gives the cardinal a brief refresher on Catholic doctrine ~
If Dolan were to say something sensible about politics to Catholics he should perhaps state the obvious: no Catholic in good conscience can vote for the Democratic party, a party that supports funding Planned Parenthood, opposes marriage, and is seen to be devastating the social fabric of this nation while bringing economic ruin to a once prosperous country.
If nothing else – especially with Trump in the mix – this presidential campaign season is going to be very entertaining
