Hillary announces vision for America: Make EVERY home a Solyndra home

30 min 41 sec ago

**Written by Doug Powers

Maybe it should be considered a positive sign that so early in Hillary’s campaign she’s already devoid of original ideas:

Promising more than a half-billion solar panels by the end of a first term and an ambitious target of clean energy for every home in America in a decade, Hillary Rodham Clinton unveiled goals on Sunday evening to reduce the threat of climate change.

She said she would continue President Obama’s sweeping plan to limit carbon emissions from power plants, and announced targets that even push beyond current goal’s for greenhouse gases.

Mr. Obama’s proposed regulations are expected to be finalized by the Environmental Protection Agency in August, and the real work of making the changes — shutting down coal plans and increasing the number of renewable electricity sources — would fall to the next administration.

The Clinton campaign said the goals, set out on its website in a video, were the first of a six-plank plan to address climate change that Mrs. Clinton would continue to unveil in coming weeks and months.

The “fighting climate change” video Hillary’s campaign put out contained images of the Wright Brothers, the flag being raised on Iwo Jima during WWII and the Apollo 11 moon landing. Maybe since all those things burned plenty of fuel in the process, she’s blaming those achievements for contributing to the problem.

What’s the scope of Hillary’s planned course of action?

Mrs. Clinton’s pledge to produce “enough renewable energy to power every American home within 10 years of taking office” — that is, by 2027 — is even more ambitious than Mr. Obama’s plan.

Unless she’s found a way to retroactively harness the kinetic energy from her husband’s zipper and supply it to every American home, this is a totally undeliverable promise. But anything beats talking about her emails.

Obama advises Kenya about ending gov’t corruption; Seattle experiencing ‘living wage’ awakening (a Sunday open thread)

30 min 41 sec ago

**Written by Doug Powers

Who’s up for another Sunday open thread? There’s lots going on but summer won’t last forever, so I’ll rattle off a few items for possible discussion and then go join the family by the pool.

*****

Seattle’s $15 minimum wage was celebrated by Nancy Pelosi and many others, but there’s a possible glitch in progressive Shangri-La.

Seattle’s $15 minimum wage law is supposed to lift workers out of poverty and move them off public assistance. But there may be a hitch in the plan.

Evidence is surfacing that some workers are asking their bosses for fewer hours as their wages rise – in a bid to keep overall income down so they don’t lose public subsidies for things like food, child care and rent.

The city’s financial problems will be over if they can figure out a way to tax irony.

*****

The wind-up:

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Saturday said she did not send classified emails from her private server while she was secretary of state.

And the pitch:

Government investigators said Friday that they had discovered classified information on the private email account that Hillary Rodham Clinton used while secretary of state, stating unequivocally that those secrets never should have been stored outside of secure government computer systems.

Here’s Hillary performing a visual interpretation of what’s happening to her email claims:

*****

Moments after this photo was taken and Hillary walked away, one of the kids said “hey, anybody seen the cash box?”

https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/625095887153405952

*****

California Attorney General Kamala Harris was so horrified by the video showing Planned Parenthood staffers discussing the harvesting and sale of baby parts that she’s going to conduct a review of… the group that made the video. Liberals do have their priorities.

*****

Speaking of California, sanctuary city San Francisco has been forced to try a urine-repellent paint in public areas (read about it in the forthcoming book “SF: The Stench of ‘Progress'”):

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.

They totally stole the “paint that fights back” idea from The Naked Gun:

*****

I saved the funniest for last…

Yesterday in Kenya, President Obama advised them to look to this U.S. example when it comes to putting an end to government corruption:

Kenyatta’s administration earlier this year declared an “unwavering war against corruption” and Obama said he believes the Kenyan president is “serious about going after this.” Obama commiserated, noting it’s been tackled in the U.S, including his hometown of Chicago which had “Al Capone, boot leggers, bribery and police on the take.”

Oh, OK:

Getting tough: John Kerry tells coveted deal partner Iran that ‘death to America’ chants are ‘pretty stupid’

30 min 41 sec ago

**Written by Doug Powers

John Kerry recently came to be aware that chants of “death to America” in Iran might not just be empty sloganeering like when Obama said “if you like your plan you can keep it,” so making his displeasure known:

Secretary of State John Kerry says he told Iranian officials during the nuclear talks that “death to America” chants at public rallies in their country were “pretty stupid.”

“I told them that their chants of ‘death to America’ and so forth are not helpful, and they’re pretty stupid,” Kerry said, lowering his voice, during a question-and-answer session at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, where he sought to sell the controversial nuclear deal.

Sure, they’re the stupid ones, Mr. Kerry.

The Iran nuke deal is a zany island, and the Obama administration is Gilligan. How hard are Khamenei and Rouhani laughing right now? How much harder will they be laughing when Kerry blames climate change for the complete failure of the “deal”?

Bonus wonder-diplomacy:

Kerry, who led the U.S. team negotiating the Iran deal over the past two years, said Friday that he had also asked Iranian officials to no longer call for the destruction of Israel.

Kerry drives a hard bargain, doesn’t he? But he’s not yet worried because he knows this isn’t anything that can’t be solved by an acoustic set from James Taylor.

Hillary trots out a new scapegoat for email shadiness: Global warming

30 min 41 sec ago

**Written by Doug Powers

null Note: The insinuation made in Hillary’s statement is Al Gore approved!

Hillary Clinton’s campaign took issue with a New York Times story mentioning a potential DOJ criminal probe of her sneaky email and server antics, and Hillary made this statement today:

“Maybe the heat is getting to everybody,” Clinton said before remarks on the economy in New York City. “We all have a responsibility to get this right.”

“We are all accountable to the American people to get the facts right and I will do my part, but I’m also going to stay focused on the issues, particularly the big issues that really matter to American families,” she added.

Yet another item to add to the “caused by global warming” list. Just the other day Hillary was “chillin” and now everybody’s in the throes of heatstroke.

Speaking of that NYT story in question, Hillary can feel lucky because she apparently has Wikipedia-esque “edit this story” capability for Times articles she’s not entirely happy with:

The New York Times made small but significant changes to an exclusive report about a potential criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s State Department email account late Thursday night, but provided no notification of or explanation for of the changes.

The paper initially reported that two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation “into whether Hillary Rodham Clinton mishandled sensitive government information on a private email account she used as secretary of state.”

That clause, which cast Clinton as the target of the potential criminal probe, was later changed: the inspectors general now were asking for an inquiry “into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state.”

The Times also changed the headline of the story, from “Criminal Inquiry Sought in Hillary Clinton’s Use of Email” to “Criminal Inquiry Is Sought in Clinton Email Account,” reflecting a similar recasting of Clinton’s possible role. The article’s URL was also changed to reflect the new headline.

Until the election, Hillary and the NYT will be known respectively as “Jump” and “How High?”

Army sends somebody to retrieve Bowe Bergdahl. Again.

30 min 41 sec ago

**Written by Doug Powers

In case you were wondering what Bowe Bergdahl’s been up to while awaiting military trial for desertion after President Obama released five Taliban commanders to secure his return:

Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who was released in a prisoner exchange in Afghanistan for five Taliban detainees, wound up in the middle of a pot raid earlier this week in northern California.

Captian Greg Van Patten with the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News Thursday that the county’s marijuana eradication team encountered Bergdahl on Tuesday while serving a search warrant on a home in Redwood City, Calif.

Van Patten said Bergdahl was detained, but ultimately was “determined not to be connected to the operation, at least there was no evidence to suggest he was involved.”

When Bergdahl encountered the law enforcement team, Van Patten said he identified himself while the sheriff’s office reached out to the Department of Defense. The agency confirmed Bergdahl was on leave, and asked for their assistance in getting him back.

Sheriff’s office personnel later drove Bergdahl “to a halfway point,” where he met up with army representatives.

Maybe Bergdahl just got tired of listening to his father say “I’m thrilled Obama’s finally going to close Gitmo” in Arabic and decided to go fire up a few spliffs.

People were sent to retrieve Bergdahl… again:

At the Pentagon’s request, the combat veteran was transported by the Sheriff’s Department to Santa Rosa where he was met by an Army major who was to accompany Bergdahl to his duty station near Washington.

At least this time there were no fatalities attempting to get him back. Several of our heroes weren’t so lucky the last time.

Sound familiar? Democrats blame people who made a video for horrific acts of others

30 min 41 sec ago

**Written by Doug Powers

In two videos that have been released (both edited versions and unedited versions) by the group Center for Medical Progress, people working for Planned Parenthood have been recorded negotiating prices for harvested organs of aborted babies and describing how, if it’s known what parts are requested, “less crunchy” techniques can be used to preserve body parts during the procedure.

Some House Democrats were so horrified they decided to ask the Justice Department to take action. No, not about Planned Parenthood, but the people who videotaped PP staffers attempting to earn gold stars in Club Mengele:

Reps. Jan Schakowsky, Zoe Lofgren, Jerry Nadler, and Yvette Clarke sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and California Attorney General Kamala Harris on Tuesday requesting an investigation into the Center for Medical Progress and the selectively-edited video of a Planned Parenthood physician that it recently released.

According to press reports, the Center for Medical Progress created a fake limited liability corporation in advance of the meeting it recorded with a Planned Parenthood doctor. The video was captured by actors using fake identification to pose as buyers from that fake human biologics company. This elaborate scheme raises serious questions about whether any federal or state laws were violated in securing the LLC or the personal identification that were part of its execution.

The video was also filmed without the consent of the Planned Parenthood doctor, which may violate California law.

There are other questions about possible coordination between the Center for Medical Progress and Members of Congress who knew about the video weeks in advance of its release.

“This is a new low, even for anti-abortion activists who will stop at nothing in their effort to undermine a woman’s right to choose,” said Schakowsky. “I believe the Center for Medical Progress may have broken the law in developing and executing this unbelievably elaborate and troubling scheme, and all Americans should have concerns about that. I hope that Attoneys General Lynch and Harris will investigate this case.”

The people who did the videotaping reached “a new low,” say those who support harvesting baby parts for sale and “joking” about getting Lamborghinis in the process.

The New York Times editorial board also decided to kick the messenger rather than admit what goes on in the .

Hillary’s campaign focused on bringing down Wall Street by accepting as much of their money as possible

30 min 41 sec ago

**Written by Doug Powers

Hypocrisy, “for the children”:

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s economic agenda targets companies that focus on short-term profits and high-speed trading instead of investing in workers. The Democratic presidential candidate’s finance operation is going after their executives for another purpose — donations.

A day after proposing higher capital gains taxes on short-term investors, Clinton raised at least $450,000 Tuesday night at the Chicago home of Raj Fernando, a longtime donor. His firm, Chopper Trading, specializes in high-frequency transactions and was recently purchased by Chicago-based competitor DRW.

Clinton’s son-in-law the hedge fund manager approves of her fight against Wall Street.

And of course Hillary’s credo is “lead by example!”

“Shocking,” say people who don’t know anything about Hillary Clinton who are her target demographic, for obvious reasons.

John Kerry: You know, maybe those ‘death to America’ chants in Iran actually mean death to America

30 min 41 sec ago

**Written by Doug Powers

Rumor has it a nice Iranian negotiator once told told John Kerry not to worry because “death to America” translates in Persian to “we love our U.S. deal partner,” but the sharp-as-a-tack, smarter-than-you-by-leaps-and-bounds secretary of state seems to be having an awakening:

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Saturday vowing to defy American policies in the region despite a deal with world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program was “very disturbing”.

“I don’t know how to interpret it at this point in time, except to take it at face value, that that’s his policy,” he said in the interview with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television, parts of which the network quoted on Tuesday.

“But I do know that often comments are made publicly and things can evolve that are different. If it is the policy, it’s very disturbing, it’s very troubling,” he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei told supporters on Saturday that U.S. policies in the region were “180 degrees” opposed to Iran’s, at a speech in a Tehran mosque punctuated by chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”.

These are the same people reconciling with Cuba and who “re-set” relations with Russia (you know how that’s going). This administration will agree to anything just so they can say they made an “historic” deal. Lots of things can be “historic,” stupidity being just one example. Supreme arrogance combined with self-centered naivety is a hell of a dangerous leadership combination.

Planned Parenthood video, round 2: If anything will make the media focus even more on Trump, this is it

30 min 41 sec ago

**Written by Doug Powers

I can’t wait to see how Cecile Richards spins round two featuring a Planned Parenthood rep discussing the sale of harvested baby parts.

null null

The defense that will be offered for this will no doubt be nearly as nauseating as the discussion itself:

In this video, Mary Gatter, the Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in Calfiornia, discusses selling aborted baby body parts with undercover investigators posing as officials with a biotech company that acts as a middleman to sell aborted baby body parts to universities and other places that conduct such research. Gatter is a senior official within Planned Parenthood and is President of the Medical Directors’ Council, the central committee of all Planned Parenthood affiliate medical directors.

Gatter discusses the pricing of aborted baby body parts — telling the biotech company officials that the prices for such things as a baby’s liver, head or heart are negotiable. She also tells the officials that she could talk with the Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners to potentially alter the abortion procedure to kill the baby in a way that would best preserve those body parts after the unborn child is killed in the abortion.

The video shows Gatter haggling over payments for intact fetal specimens and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” to get more intact body parts.

Actors posing as buyers ask Gatter, “What would you expect for intact [fetal] tissue?

“Well, why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying!” Gatter replies.

The rest of the article along with the video is here. The mainstream media will now undoubtedly redouble their focus on… Donald Trump.

Here’s a nice juxtaposition…

Cecile Richards:

I want to be really clear: The allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in any way from tissue donation is not true.

Planned Parenthood’s Mary Gatter in the latest video:

By the lunch’s end, Gatter suggests $100 per specimen is not enough and concludes, “Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”

In the video, Gatter laughs after saying she wants a Lambo, so Cecile Richards will point out she was “clearly joking” or something along those lines, as if that would lessen the hideousness of what’s being discussed.

Guy who lies on behalf of the Obama admin daily says Planned Parenthood follows ‘highest ethical guidelines’

Mon, 07/27/2015 - 06:35

**Written by Doug Powers

Just to set the tone of the depth of involvement the White House has with Planned Parenthood, here’s President Obama in the spring of 2013 saying “God bless you” to Planned Parenthood:

In other words, if Obama and Planned Parenthood met on eHarmony, they’d line up on all 29 dimensions of compatibility.

With that in mind, we move on to Friday’s WH presser, when Josh Earnest put some distance between PP and Obama. Earnest said he (and Obama) haven’t seen the infamous video about baby organ harvesting (and I understand there are more to come), but that didn’t stop the WH spokesliar from serving as a character reference of sorts to Planned Parenthood:

President Barack Obama’s top spokesman today defended the Planned Parenthood abortion business after a shocking new expose’ video caught Planned Parenthood’s top doctor describing how the abortion business sells the body parts of aborted babies.
[…]
Now, Obama spokesman Josh Ernest is defending the abortion giant, despite not having seen the video. Although he said he has not viewed the video, Earnest says Planned Parenthood follows “the highest ethical guidelines” on medical research. Earnest referred questions about Planned Parenthood to Planned Parenthood.

“I haven’t spoken to the president” about the video, Earnest said.

“I did read news reports,” Earnest said. “Planned Parenthood said they follow the highest ethical guidelines.

Hard to decide who’s less credible — the PP defenders who are calling the two-plus hour video “heavily edited” (which is laughable, because it’s the live version of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida of unedited recordings), or the people who successfully sold “if you like your plan you can keep it” to half the country. As always, it’s best not to believe any of the above.

But at least we finally found a video the White House isn’t eager to blame for horrible and preventable deaths.

Obama on the Chattanooga killing of 4 Marines: A heartbreaking circumstance

Sun, 07/26/2015 - 22:35

**Written by Doug Powers

In Chattanooga, four U.S. Marines were gunned down in a jihad attack by an Islamic man who didn’t properly observe the “gun free zone” sign.

This quote from Obama is something else:

"It is a heartbreaking circumstance" —@POTUS on the shooting in Chattanooga https://t.co/sS7cQen0Qj

— The White House (@WhiteHouse) July 17, 2015

“A heartbreaking circumstance” sounds like a Lifetime movie, but not how to describe the murder of four Marines.

Well, the White House couldn’t go into too much detail or risk looking a little silly, having tweeted this an hour earlier:

A reminder about those ‘inspections’ of Iran’s nuclear program Obama has been talking about…

Sun, 07/26/2015 - 22:35

**Written by Doug Powers

When President Obama announced the nuke deal that Iranian leadership is turning cartwheels over, he was big on pointing out how the U.S. will know that conditions of the agreement have been violated because of the constant inspections:

Because of this deal, we will, for the first time, be in a position to verify all of these commitments. That means this deal is not built on trust; it is built on verification. Inspectors will have 24/7 access to Iran’s key nuclear facilities.

Inspectors will have access to Iran’s entire nuclear supply chain — its uranium mines and mills, its conversion facility, and its centrifuge manufacturing and storage facilities. This ensures that Iran will not be able to divert materials from known facilities to covert ones. Some of these transparency measures will be in place for 25 years.

Because of this deal, inspectors will also be able to access any suspicious location. Put simply, the organization responsible for the inspections, the IAEA, will have access where necessary, when necessary. That arrangement is permanent. And the IAEA has also reached an agreement with Iran to get access that it needs to complete its investigation into the possible military dimensions of Iran’s past nuclear research.

The International Atomic Energy Agency will handle inspections of Iranian facilities, and there will be no American inspectors involved — at all:

National Security Adviser Susan Rice: There will be no Americans on Iran inspection teams: http://t.co/ygyrSZQga1 http://t.co/hATPdrqQ4i

— The Situation Room (@CNNSitRoom) July 16, 2015

Why no American inspectors? It’s part of this great “deal”:

It permits the agency to place more inspectors inside Iran, as long as their native countries have diplomatic relations with Iran — in other words, no Americans

What could possibly go wrong?

Oh well — if the whole deal goes bad, Rice will probably blame a video anyway.

*****

Bonus “nuke deal” points: Not only has the Obama administration agreed wholeheartedly to allow Iran to continue their nuclear programs, but they’ve apparently agreed to help instruct them how to protect their sites from attack — presumably from what Team Obama considers rogue states like Israel:

In what is being viewed as a new development, European countries and potentially the United States agreed to “cooperate with Iran on the implementation of nuclear security guidelines and best practices,” according to a copy of the agreement furnished by both the Russians and Iranians.

This will include “training courses and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to prevent, protect and respond to nuclear security threats to nuclear facilities and systems as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems,” according to the text.

Additional “training and workshops” would work to “strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against, and respond to nuclear security threats, including sabotage, as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems,” the text states.

The language was viewed as disturbing by analysts and experts who said such cooperation could help protect Iran against efforts by the Israelis or other countries to sabotage the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program in the future.

I’m picturing a Tehran version of the Iron Dome where any incoming threats to Iran’s nuke program would be taken out by a missile defense system mounted on John Kerry’s head:

In baseball terms, the nuke deal with Iran allows Tehran to advance to third base on the atomic field of play with full confidence that “inspections” will never allow them to steal home.

Hillary Clinton, who couldn’t even see the Benghazi attack coming in spite of warnings, has vowed to never allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon — the clearest sign yet that she knows voters don’t want Iran to have nukes and/or their check to the Clinton Foundation has not yet cleared:

Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton, in a tough statement on the Iran nuclear deal, vowed on Tuesday that Tehran will never be able to acquire atomic weapons if she is elected to the White House.

Ms Clinton made her statement as critics in the US Congress, as well as skeptical US allies around the globe, criticized the agreement as providing Iran with a glide path albeit a somewhat delayed one toward an eventual nuclear weapon.

‘As president, I would use every tool in our arsenal to compel rigorous Iranian compliance,’ she said.

‘The message to Iran should be loud and clear: We will never allow you to acquire a nuclear weapon; not just during the term of this agreement never.’

A former US secretary of state, Ms Clinton said she is ‘still studying the details’ of the plan, but gave it her qualified backing.

Hillary added, “And besides, I already sold all the available uranium to the Russians.”

Look who’s coddling Denver’s social justice jerks

Look who’s coddling Denver’s social justice jerks
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2015

“All cops are bastards!”
“F**k cops!”

“This is what white supremacy looks like!”

On a tranquil Sunday afternoon in Denver, hate-mongering zealots hijacked a rally held by citizens and families of fallen police officers, who had gathered to pay tribute to Colorado’s honorable men and women in blue.

The event organizer, local businessman Ron MacLachlan, followed all the rules and obtained a city permit. Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a proclamation declaring July 19 Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. The idea, MacLachlan explained to local reporters, was to show his teenage children and other young people the myriad positive contributions of those who protect and serve.

The rally was supposed to be a counterbalance to the poisonous post-Ferguson propaganda that has cast all cops as antagonists.

Instead, a mob of anarchists and social justice jerks (who didn’t bother obtaining a permit) held another profane seminar on intolerance.

Rally attendee Monica Goodfellow — the wife of a retired Denver Police veteran who served 35 years and the mother of a rookie Denver Police officer — told me the grievance grifters were “marching, screaming their vile chants and waving flags” that bore their well-worn “F**k the police” slogan.

Then they bullied the relatives of police officers killed in the line of duty over a loudspeaker by bellowing:

“Cops are your enemies!”

Keepin’ it classy, as always.

“There were families at the rally with young children who had to stand and watch the disgusting scene,” Goodfellow added. “There were uniformed (Denver Police Department) officers standing at the perimeter watching, and (they) did nothing to stop the protesters or move them to another area so we could hold our rally without harassment.”

Were the cops ordered to stand down by Denver’s liberal city leaders? It wouldn’t be the first time.

Back in February, rank-and-file officers and their families erupted in fury after DPD’s top brass forbade their own men and women in uniform from stopping two thugs who brazenly defaced a hallowed memorial for fallen officers.

Both the Fraternal Order of Police and the Denver Police Protective Association called for the resignations of Denver Police Chief Robert White and city director of public safety Stephanie O’Malley. The FOP reported that officers “were forced to watch as the vandals poured red paint on the memorial to fallen officers, spray-painted obscene slogans in the plaza and pasted stickers with a death threat for one officer.”

The mobsters ripped down the American flag flying over the memorial and then spat and stomped on it.

Several patriotic officers who sought to replace the desecrated flag (including one cop who had served in the Marines) were reprimanded and interrogated by command staff for doing so, according to the FOP.

The animosity toward cops in the bowels of liberal Denver’s political bureaucracy runs deep. In a revealing moment of social media candor uncovered this spring by local TV station CBS 4, the daughter of the city’s deputy manager of safety exposed the hostility. Elena Vigil bragged online that her father, Jess, is a “former Chicano rights activist and hater of police” who “obviously hates his job because he has to follow the rules and they’re always skewed towards cops.”

Denials abounded. Rank-and-file protests against the city’s anti-law enforcement bias were met with … nothing. Hickenlooper and Democratic Denver Mayor Michael Hancock are AWOL. This week, politically correct White shook up his department and demoted several commanders for unknown reasons “to take us to the next level as a police agency.” Whatever that means.

Bottom line: He’s still in top office after the stand-down fiasco, which sent a clear signal to Denver’s social justice jerks that they are the ones in charge.

For the men and women in blue in Colorado’s capital city, Goodfellow wants the nation to know: “The city of Denver is a disgusting, intolerant place.”

Do Planned Parenthood and the pro-abortion activists fight against a 20-week and beyond abortion ban because they’re just vehement champions of “choice”? As with many other issues, follow the money instead.

Via LifeNews.com, this is as hideous and sick as it gets:

New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

In the video, Nucatola is at a business lunch with actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company. As head of PPFA’s Medical Services department, Nucatola has overseen medical practice at all Planned Parenthood locations since 2009. She also trains new Planned Parenthood abortion doctors and performs abortions herself at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles up to 24 weeks.

Nucatola admits that Planned Parenthood charges per-specimen for baby body parts, uses illegal partial-birth abortion procedures in order to get salable parts, and is aware of their own liability for doing so and takes steps to cover it up.

The footage shockingly depicts the top medical official at the Planned Parenthood corporation munching on her salad while she discusses the sale of body parts of unborn children victimized by abortions. She brazenly describes how the heads of unborn babies killed in abortions command top dollar.

The full video is here (transcript here). That’s unbelievable, even for Planned Parenthood radicals, but it certainly helps make it clear why more of them weren’t horrified out of the business by Kermit Gosnell.

This is one of the sickest questions that’s ever had to be asked about that “organization”:

.@CecileRichards made over $590K in 2014. How much $$ did she make from selling aborted baby body parts? http://t.co/HcmkVpt22T

How is it that nobody has been arrested yet?

Planned Parenthood’s reaction includes this:

At several of our health centers, we help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research, and we do this just like every other high-quality health care provider does — with full, appropriate consent from patients and under the highest ethical and legal standards.

OK, show us one instance where the “patient” who “donated” organs signed off on a consent form.

And if you’re a pro-life critic of Planned Parenthood, you’re anti-life, or something like that:

A well funded group established for the purpose of damaging Planned Parenthood’s mission and services has promoted a heavily edited, secretly recorded videotape that falsely portrays Planned Parenthood’s participation in tissue donation programs that support lifesaving scientific research.

In other words, if you were horrified that a woman was able to sit there and casually munch on a salad while talking about how to kill unborn babies in ways that don’t damage their organs for later sale, well, you’re just a bad person.

“God bless you” Planned Parenthood:

The media can as usual be counted on to guard the Left by taking a “Republicans seize on” angle instead of simply reporting the alleged horrors.
