ACLUers condone infanticide and prefer war on Christians to war on terrorists

This revealing interview session, conducted by Fox News’ Jesse Watters, is interspersed with much needed comic relief clips. It took place at the recent ACLU convention in Princeton, New Jersey.

Notice that one of the interviewees is a University of Chicago law professor. That’s the same school where Barack Obama allegedly was a  constitutional law professor.


5th Circuit Court lets TX close most abortion clinics

October 3, 2014

We often express our disappointment in the far left rulings emanating from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals which has appellate jurisdiction over legal issues in Arizona and eight other states plus two territorial courts. This court is not only the nation’s largest, but also the most overturned.

But today we applaud the ruling of the U.S. 5th Circuit Court —- with an entirely different makeup —- allowing Texas to immediately begin enforcing new abortion restrictions that will close all but seven abortion facilities in America’s second most-populous state. 

Republican Gov. Rick Perry has noted Texas’ 2013 law HB 2,  was designed to protect women’s health.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican who is consistently polling high in the race for governor, has led the defense of the law. Abbott released a statement saying, “This decision is a vindication of the careful deliberation by the Texas Legislature to craft a law to protect the health and safety of Texas women.”

Abbot’s gubernatorial opponent is Democrat Wendy Davis, who launched her campaign riding the notoriety she achieved during a nearly 13-hour filibuster last June that temporarily blocked the law in the state Senate. Not only did she don running shoes and a back brace during her marathon performance, she was also equipped with a catheter, allowing her to stay on the floor since trips to the restroom were disallowed.

A decision by Judge Jennifer Elrod in the case Whole Woman’s Health, et al v. David Lakey, et al  in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has lifted the district court’s injunction, allowing HB 2 to immediately go into effect.


Dr. Sowell defines urgency of GOP Senate victory

September 17, 2014

In 66 words, the genius of Thomas Sowell illuminates

“Despite TV pundits who say that public opinion polls show Barack Obama is in trouble, the president is not in the slightest trouble. He is doing whatever he feels like doing, regardless of the Constitution and regardless of how many people don’t like it, because he is virtually impeachment-proof. The country is in huge trouble and real danger because of his policies, but he is not.”


LD 25 Senate race’s clear choice: Vote Ralph Heap

August 6, 2014

Dr. Ralph Heap is the conservative choice —- Worsley’s history is colluding with liberals

Two candidates are running under the Republican banner for the single state senate seat in Mesa’s Legislative District 25. Although they both claim to be conservatives, the facts tell a different story.

The incumbent Bob Worsley has shown himself to be a Democrat collaborator who joined with five other AZ Senate Republicrats —- Adam Driggs, John McComish, Steve Pierce, Michele Reagan, and Rich Crandall —- and the unified Democrats.  Their betrayal resulted in passage  of the unconscionable and unsustainable Medicaid Expansion, a key element of Barack Obama’s signature health care scheme. 

In its endorsement of Worsley, the far-left Arizona Republic newspaper lavished praise on his deceit, calling him “one of six courageous lawmakers who bucked the party to do what was right for Arizona.” 

Challenging Worsley is Ralph Heap, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon.  His issues page tells the unequivocal story of where he stands on the matters of importance to the grassroots, Constitutional conservatives in the district. As a physician, he has a deep understanding of the myriad  problems connected with the multibillion expansion of Medicaid which his opponent recklessly and irresponsibly supported. Heap is pro-life, pro-Second Amendment and committed to limited government and lower taxes.

A tour of the Secretary of State’s public campaign finance reports tells where Worsley gets his support. His donor list is heavy with lobbyists, unionists, utility company, big pharma and health care execs. The pro-illegal labor Chamber of Commerce and immigration lawyers are contributors, along with a fair share of Democrats. It’s not much of a surprise to see  Cindy Hensley McCain’s Hensley/Anheuser-Busch Co. executives Robert Delgado and Doug Yonko among Worsley’s donors.

We first covered Bob Worsley in March 2012 with Worsley’s new pals at Periódico de la República de Arizona and then again in June 2012 with this post, Bob Worsley: Hypocrite-in-Chief.

Compare Dr. Ralph Heap’s informative website to the mumbo-jumbo dished by Worsley, who inanely declares, “We need to repair our image and heal the scars of divisive politics,” as he promotes his “vision” #ELEV8AZ which includes “more apples, more sunshine, more ethics, more music…less hatred and less government.” Considering that he irresponsibly supported massive government overreaches Worsley’s words are all the more shallow and glib.

Ralph Heap’s campaign is being out raised by the extremely wealthy and politically connected Worsley who founded Sky Mall. Heap’s donation site is here.

This election is crucial. Time is short.

US Supreme Court lobs a major blow at ObamaCare

June 30, 2014

Today’s 5 – 4 U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down ObamaCare’s employer paid contraception and abortificides —- abortion inducing drug  —– mandate is a decisive victory for religious freedom.  Barack Obama’s efforts at the socialization of American health care has suffered a major setback.

This decision is even a more significant triumph since it is the first time that the high court has ruled that for-profit businesses can hold religious views under federal law.

On June 28, 2012, Chief Justice John Roberts stunned conservatives by joining with the liberal Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor—– as he shockingly cast the deciding vote upholding the ‘Affordable Care Act,’ which Obama viewed as his signature domestic achievement. The flagrant and massive federal overreach into American’s personal health care decisions is widely known as ObamaCare. Here is a montage of Obama’s repeated lies.*

In today’s decision, Justice Samuel Alito wrote the majority opinion. Justice Anthony Kennedy, often a swing vote, voted with the majority. The court’s four liberal justices hung tight, with Ginsburg writing the dissent.

The decision in Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services, et al v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., (joined by Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp.) can be read here in its entirety.

Abortion: The comedy?

June 7, 2014

Filmdom reaches new low

Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell reviews the cringe-worthy new film, “Obvious Child,” coming soon to a theater near you.

This is the industry’s descriptive takeaway theme of the movie:  A “drunken hookup —– and epic lapse in prophylactic judgment —– turns out to be the beginning of a hilarious and totally unplanned journey of self-discovery and empowerment.”

“Hilarious” and “empowerment.”  Get that?

For a incisive analysis of the vacuous mindset of the left, take time to read Bozell’s Here comes the ‘Abortion comedy.’

Soulless reviewers, however, were enthusiastic. Variety’s Peter Debruge described the film as “uproarious” and a “refreshingly honest date-night laffer.” 

The New York Times’ Megan Angelo calls it an “abortion romantic comedy,” giving accolades to the aborting protagonist for her unwavering determination. Writer-director Gillian Robespierre also wants no ambiguity regarding the main character’s resolute commitment to sentencing her own child to death. “This isn’t a hard decision for her to make,” she unequivocally states.

As this enchantment with death is benignly passed off as “hilarious entertainment,” or “a quirky romantic comedy,” what additional proof is needed to show the diversion industry not only has no standards —- but is actually euphoric at the opportunity to give the appearance of trendiness to the foul practice of abortion? 


Mary Rose Wilcox resigns: vows to “deliver the bacon home”

May 26, 2014

After a political career mired in controversy, Mary Rose Wilcox is vacating the post she’s held over two decades on the Board of Supervisors. But don’t rejoice at the departure of the radical advocate for illegal aliens just yet. She’s announced that she is running for the Congressional District 7 post now open via the retirement of Democrat U.S. Rep. Ed Pastor.

It won’t be difficult to gauge the type of representative she hopes to be.

As a Maricopa County Supervisor, supposedly representing all of the people in District 5, Wilcox was the recipient of a national award from the government of Mexico for “promoting the prosperity of members of the Mexican community beyond Mexico’s political borders.” Among the accolades the Mexican government heaped on Wilcox, this stands out: “She has been in the forefront in the push for comprehensive immigration reform.”

Wilcox’s lack of concern for her actual constituents was highlighted when the Supervisors voted against increasing the 2011 property tax rate on Maricopa County citizens struggling in the worst economy in decades. It was Mary Rose who cast the lone dissenting vote.

Mary Rose Wilcox profited as one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Federal Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise program intended to assist minorities and disadvantaged businesses. The ABC News and Goldwater Institute’s 25-page investigation links in this post no longer work. This 2009 overview is still available.

In 2011, Maricopa County taxpayers were the golden-egg-laying geese who had to shell out nearly $1 million to Wilcox for her weepy claims of being harassed and intimidated.

Wilcox will face off against former state Rep. Ruben Gallego in the Democrat primary. Obviously getting the word from the party hierarchy, State Sen. Steve Gallardo has dropped out of the congressional race — even after his “coming-out” announcement timed to ensure him support in the odd district.

Gallego has been endorsed by radical leftists CD 3 Rep. Raul Grijalva and single-termer Harry Mitchell. Wilcox has the endorsements of the retiring liberal Ed Pastor and the pro-abortion EMILY’S List, a group that spent nearly $4 million on Democrat women in 2012.

The daily reported that at her farewell reception as she departed the Board of Supervisors, Mary Rose told those in attendance, “If you pray for me, I will get that job, and I will deliver the bacon home. Thank you, and let’s eat cake.”

One thing Mary Rose Wilcox, 64, has long shown a proficiency for is delivering “the bacon home” —- to her own. Oink. Oink.
