Planned Parenthood: Custom Killing 20 Week Old Babies To Harvest Their Organs

So, let me get this straight.

If you have an objection to a Planned Parenthood staffer telling an undercover investigator that they can do things to make an aborted fetus “less crunchy” in an attempt to preserve viable organs, you have declared a war on women.

If you object to using the euphemism “fetal tissue” when they really mean “body parts” harvested from late term, partial birth abortions, than you have declared a war on women.

Well, I don’t know about that. But I do know that Planned Parenthood has apparently declared a war on viable babies, and I know it because I saw the video and read the unedited transcripts.

If there were ever a reason to declare a war on a half a billion tax dollars funding this organization, this is it.

And their lamo response?

The video was “heavily edited,” and shooting the video was possibly illegal since the poor miscreants from Planned Parenthood didn’t know they were being recorded.

As my step children would have said before they all became adults (because their mother wisely decided to have them), duuuhhhh…

Even the moron doctor who said she wanted a Lambo when she was haggling over the price probably would have cleaned up her big fat white wine rinsed mouth if she knew she was being recorded.

ABC News does a program with John Quinones called “What Would You Do?” where they set up a whole situation somewhere with actors and hidden cameras. This would have been a fascinating episode because all that was missing was the big reveal with John stepping out and introducing himself. Nobody says that ABC has violated anybody’s rights.

What do you think the abortionist would have said under those circumstances?

What would you have done—no matter your political leaning—if you were at the next table?

Harry Reid (D-Ritz Carlton, Washington DC) defended Planned Parenthood, noting that the videos were “politically motivated” and that fetal tissues had been used in research for a long time.

The part about fetal tissue is true.

But whole organs? Which were harvested by a doctor who—for lack of a better term—custom kills a baby so as not to damage the organs?

I don’t know about you, but that’s a little too much playing God for me.

It sounds pretty close to what Dr. Josef Mengele (The Nazi Angel of Death) did during the third Reich.

It’s only a small step from there, to just picking out a kid whose life maybe doesn’t matter as much as others and harvesting his or her organs.

Just like they custom kill a cow to get a specific cut of meat.

It is typical of the left that even when they get caught doing or supporting the most horrific of things, they never, ever admit that they might have gone over the line.

I’m a realist. I don’t think you will ever stop abortions as long as you have irresponsible people having irresponsible sex.

Reasonable people can differ on when life begins.

But when you can harvest an intact heart and lungs, then what you are really doing is murdering a baby.

Anybody who can argue with that has never seen an ultrasound at 20 weeks.

We don’t have to pay for it with tax dollars, and we certainly don’t have to encourage late term partial birth abortions where the baby is custom killed by a doctor who is trying to harvest the baby’s organs intact.

When people getting federal funding to the tune of half a BILLION dollars a year admit what they are doing over white wine, salad and brie, we need to stop paying for it.

Only God can play God.

Buchanan Says Trump Could Make the Final Four

If you’ve ever been involved in a political campaign, you know that, to the people in the war room, everything counts.

If the opposition says “boo,” the candidate has to call a press conference to say “yah!”

If a friend of the opposition says that the sky is blue, meetings must be held to define blue, ascertain whether or not blue has a positive or negative effect on the campaign, and carefully craft a response which says that red is better.

Talking points must be carefully crafted and stuck to.  If you win, you haven’t had much fun for six months to a year; and if you lose, you really don’t have much fun at all.

Unless, you are Donald Trump.

That’s why the political class hates him so much.

He is telling the absolute truth about money.  He gave a lot of money to a lot of candidates of all stripes so he could get things done in business.

One of the real reasons they hate him is because they can no longer tap his checkbook. And, as he, himself, says, that’s one of the worst parts of the system. Not that campaigns cost money but that money gives you special access—even to people like Lindsey Graham or John McCain whose public persona is such that you would think they would be happy to talk to everyone. They’re not. Trump brought that out, and they hate it.

It takes a really rich guy (or gal) who is financially invulnerable to tell the truth about the seamy side of American politics. Most everybody else is too worried about their pathetic careers.

One of the reasons the media has a love-hate relation with Trump is that they get a lot of copy from skyblue vs. skyred debates–and their bosses make a lot of money selling advertising to both blue and red candidates and their advocates.

So they love the show Trump creates, but they would rather get back to normal because they understand normal; and they really don’t understand it when their normally predictable viewers like someone they don’t.

Still, we went from a week ago where commentators—most of whom have never played the game—were insisting Trump was over to the very same people in the face of real polls saying he was really surging, suggesting that maybe it was real, after all.

Can Donald Trump actually win the Presidency?

Pat Buchanan told Meet the Press that it is possible Trump will get to the Final Four–or maybe even the finals, to use the March Madness metaphor. To extend that metaphor, when you get to the final game, anything can happen.  Ask the late Jim Valvano and his 1983 North Carolina State Wolfpack. Or, better than that, ask the Houston team that was widely expected to cruise to the title.

While the NCAA might cringe at Buchanan’s wordsmithing, the fact is that he may be right.

And here’s another interesting sidenote.

While polls—which have Trump at or near the top—are the stock in trade of the “political experts,” the fact is they often under-represent real people. The pollsters like to tell you how “scientific” they are, but the fact is that they have had serious sample problems in the past 15 years as the internet and cell phones have become a serious factor.

It’s possible that Trump’s real number is higher than the polls are reporting because it’s possible that people who normally wouldn’t vote will go out of their way to support a guy who they viscerally like–and who sticks it to the conventional politicians.

Which brings up the final question. Could Trump handle the Presidency?

I’m guessing that the entire Republican field would agree: certainly better than the clown occupying the office now.

Bruce Jenner Couldn’t Wear Jim Valvano’s Jockstrap

“If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions, go ahead…” —Bruce Jenner, the Espy Awards.

If you watched the ESPY Awards, between promos for ABC’s upcoming fall season, you could see plenty of examples of who should have won the Arthur Ashe “Courage” Award.

Bruce Jenner wasn’t one of those examples.

And if you really want to go down memory lane, you can find Jim Valvano’s 1993 ESPY speech on YouTube. As Jimmy V was dying of cancer, he told the crowd about his new Jimmy V Foundation, which would raise money to fund cancer research long after he was gone. And so it has.

Bruce is also raising money. For him or herself. About a half a billion reality dollars from what the various news sources say. And he is actually still a he; he told Diane Sawyer: “I was not genetically born that way. As of now, I have all the male parts and all that kind of stuff. So, in a lot of ways, we’re different, OK, but we still identify as female. And that’s very hard for Bruce Jenner to say. Because, why? I don’t want to disappoint people.”

Ahem. Let’s add it up. He’s got a very large reality show contract—reported at $500,000,000 but who knows—he’s made a large amount of Kardashian money, and he apparently hasn’t yet had a surgeon take a scalpel to his male genitals.

He certainly has not disappointed his business managers.

This is one highly skilled self-promoter.

But a poster girl for the transgender community?  A profile in courage?

You’ll forgive my skepticism.

The fact is this person could not wear Jimmy Valvano’s jockstrap with or without reassignment surgery. It’s not courage when you, personally, are getting paid for it. It’s self-promoting. Bruce is Martha Stewart on steroids.

Do not misunderstand me. I’m sure that there are people who feel they are trapped in the bodies of the opposite gender. So much so, they actually do something about it.

Most of those people don’t have a half a billion dollar reality show contract waiting for them on the other side. In fact, I’m willing to bet just about all of them except Jenner.

I can think of a lot of people in sports who have courage.

I can think of a lot of people who were at that evening’s ESPY awards show who have courage.

If Bruce had gone up on stage and said that he didn’t deserve any award nearly as much as the little girl who played in a college basketball game after being diagnosed with terminal cancer and died this year, I’d have some sympathy for him.

But the truth is, he couldn’t wear her jockstrap, either.

RINO McCain Cost Us Four Years Of Obama…How Heroic Is That?

It didn’t take the Republican establishment—which already hates Donald Trump—long in declaring the end of his candidacy when he said about John McCain what all of us have been thinking for years.

McCain’s war hero status does NOT qualify him to be President.

Fox News is upset; Britt Hume is in high dudgeon; CNN hosts have worked themselves into orgasmic paroxysms chanting Trump’s candidacy is dead. The broadcast media is only slightly more circumspect because they are all making money covering the show, and they want the show to continue for a while.

There’s one radio talk show which even suggests that Trump will lose the GOP primaries and then endorse Hillary.

I’ll take the Vegas odds that he stays at number 1 for a while longer.

When CBS News quotes the Des Moines Register telling Trump to drop out of the show, you know that, in the words of the late Ed Sullivan, it’s a really big show!

Here are the facts:

Being a less-than-great fighter pilot and getting shot down over Hanoi does NOT make you any more of a hero than a GI who enlisted and defended the perimeter during the Tet Offensive, or someone who was called up from his or her Guard unit from their quiet life and sent to Iraq. Everybody who has served honorably is, by definition, a hero.

John McCain, however, used his POW status and the undeniable (and highly admirable) fact that he refused the North Vietnamese offer of an early release to lever himself into a Congressional career where he has lined up with Democrats enough to make about 4,000,000 Republican voters sit on their hands when he ran for President in 2008.

The point that Trump was inartfully making was that such behavior does NOT qualify one to be President.

And the Washington Hackockracy went nuts because they thought that this was their chance to rid themselves of Trump.

Ummmm. Don’t think so.

You see, all of those people who either held their nose and voted for McCain or sat on their hands and stayed home are just as frustrated with Washington political hacks today as they were then. Maybe, after two terms of Barack Obama, more. And, like it or not, Trump is talking to them, singing their song.

Can he win?

My guess is still no. But I could be wrong. And, at least he is engaging people who were fleeing the party in droves.

It was enough for the tea party folks to take over the House and have a significant tea party influence on the Senate.

Trump is not a long-time conservative in the mold of a Ronald Reagan or a Barry Goldwater. But he’s a pretty smart businessman whose strength is diagnosing and solving problems.

The baggage he carries is his public persona; but, for the moment, it is that very persona which is keeping him on top despite the media—the entire media including Fox—waging all out war on him.

I would not be surprised to see Fox try and keep him out of the first debate.

The Huffington Post refuses to cover him in their political section–although their entertainment section, where they do cover him, is always more interesting and a better read than what they call their political section.

I suspect that the only reason Fox doesn’t dare to exclude him from the debate is they would lose viewers in droves to the new Newsmax network.

At the end of the day, what you read, see, and hear has nothing to do with what voters actually want or think. It has to do with money.

When you see a Republican commentator screaming that Trump is a clown show who should be drummed out of the party, rest assured, that’s just part of the big media show. As long as people watch, as long as Trump’s ratings are good, the show continues. If the American voter tires of him and his message, then, in his own words, he’s fired.

If that doesn’t happen…

Trump Candidacy Real And Not A Bad Thing

I’m not nearly as put off by Donald Trump as are many people who identify themselves or their politics as Republican. In fact, I think his presence is good for the process and good for America.

I’m not prepared to endorse him at the moment, but it would appear that there are many Americans who are; and therein lies the point of him running in the first place. He represents the frustration of the average guy who doesn’t think his vote counts for very much and appreciates a man who is willing to put his mouth where his money is and say what he thinks.

That happened with Ross Perot in 1992 and 1996.

I don’t think Trump can win the nomination for a couple of reasons. First is that the system is rigged against guys like him. It is run by the Washington Hackockracy, which are like croupiers in a casino. Their only job is to rake the money off the table. The second, and more important, reason is Trump, himself. Running a political campaign—from the local school board to the Presidency—is a difficult, time consuming, mind-altering experience; and it’s very hard to run for the largest office in the world never having done it at any other level. Experience is a tough taskmaster. He is unprepared for this race by definition.

None of that is to say, however, that he cannot win.

This is America, and something my late father always taught me is absolutely true. Every little boy or girl can grow up to be President. Look at the Bozo who is there now.

And Donald Trump has major advantages in that he is smart, rich, and adaptable.

Whether that is enough to overcome the inertia the system already has in place to stop non-insiders at the door, only time will tell.

Whatever happens, however, Trump WILL make the race better. If people such as the chair of the Republican National Committee think they’re doing anybody any favors by suggesting to Trump that he change his rhetoric, they are smoking crack.

Candidly, if Trump DID listen to such entreaties and appropriately modified his behavior, it would show us that he’s just another politician; and that would disqualify him from further consideration.

You know how nervous he makes the Hackocracy? NBC’s Meet the Press—the official TV show of the Washington Political Hacks (sounds like a baseball team)—went out of its snarky way to do a hit piece on the Donald. This from the news division of a company which broke its contract with Trump to air the Miss USA pageant because they didn’t like something he said on the campaign trail.

Worse, the Ryan Seacrest of politics, Chuck Todd, did it with a straight face.

A little of what Trump said in 1999 out of context, a little of what he said 16 years later and, voila!, a video hit piece which allowed panel members to say Trump is a flip flopper—or something like that.

This from the networks of Brian Williams and Ed Schultz (and formerly Keith Olberman).

If that’s the best the left has got, Trump only has to worry about friendly fire.

If I were one of those other GOP candidates, I’d tell any media that asked that I’m worried about my own campaign, not Trump’s.

Any candidate who does that will be just fine.

Any candidate who panders will get caught up in his or her own tar patch and sink from the public view.

This is the best bench of candidates—including Trump—that the Grand Old Party has had in years. One can only hope that the party doesn’t do what activist Chuck Muth often accurately accuses it of—that it never blows an opportunity to blow an opportunity.
