Crazed porn prof attacks teen pro-life activist

March 22, 2014

University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young, is facing criminal charges after a videotaped confrontation with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign, harassed and tussled with the 16-year-old girl. 

Miller-Young, whose faculty web page says she specializes in black cultural studies, pornography and sex work, claims she was “traumatized by the graphic imagery.”

Thrin Short, her older sister Joan, 21, and other young pro-life supporters are members of the Christian pro-life group Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. They were holding signs and demonstrating in a free speech zone on the campus earlier this month when Miller-Young went berserk.

The professor was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. Read the police report courtesy of the Santa Barbara Independent newspaper.

This video of the assault and theft was made by the young victim.

The newspaper also has the full report, including a comment from the wordsmith lawyer representing Miller-Young, who called the pro-life supporters, “anti-choice.”


Thinking like a liberal: An impossible task for the rational

March 12, 2014

Trying to make sense of madness

As difficult as it is to imagine, far left activists in New York City spent last weekend protesting a $100 million donation to New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Groups as seemingly diverse as the New York State Nurses’ Association — which should be celebrating the creation of dozens of jobs for nurses and enhanced patient care — the NAACP New York State Conference and SEIU unionists protested the hospital’s plans to add an ambulatory care center, to be called the David H. Koch Center.

The new addition to the hospital is made possible by the beyond-generous donation from David Koch, one of the politically conservative, philanthropist Koch brothers who have, in recent years, been targeted by leftist politicians, activists and media elites.

Yet despite the fact that David Koch gave what is purportedly the largest donation in the hospital’s history, according to this report in the Washington Free Beacon, liberals are outraged that the hospital accepted his money.

Screeching activists, shouting about the Koch’s funding of a nonexistent “war on women’s reproductive rights” organized the protest on International Women’s Day.

Such bizarre workings of liberal minds are not unique to this irrational display.

Also in New York the war on parental choice in the education of their own children continues as radical Mayor Bill de Blasio’s unconscionable decision to rescind approval of high-performing charter schools has created havoc throughout the state resulting in multiple lawsuits from parents. But his outrageous actions have also attracted the wrath of the far left, who are suing de Blasio for not shutting down even more such schools.  DeBlasio’s educrat approved actions have forced mostly low income children back into substandard, under-performing government schools. The Daily Caller exposes de Blasio’s long-standing socialist ties.

Here in Arizona, where charter schools flourish and students benefit, the liberal daily newspaper runs editorials and Page One articles against the expansion of parental choice, through the state’s Empowerment Scholarship Account program.  Several bills are now advancing through the legislature which provide options that benefit families. The Arizona Republic calls them “divisive.”

 


AZ Republic’s hit pieces: Have you noticed a pattern?

March 4, 2014

Fishy_Arizona_Republic

Conservatives repeatedly slammed, mischaracterized

It’s no secret the Arizona Republic is a leftward-lurching, agendized newspaper.  Most often the struggling daily concentrates its energies on promoting legalization of America’s illegal invaders and normalizing homosexuality. But superseding all else is its cause célèbre — advancing the Democrat party and its candidates.  It is via that method, after all, that the other issues move forward.

A couple of weeks ago a multi-page, fabricated exposé of Republican political consultant Sean Noble was Page One material. If disinterested readers skipped past it, they saw all that was needed to get the daily’s nefarious point across.  Accompanying his mega-size photo was the sinister title, “The Dark Money Man: Sean Noble, Koch cash and Politics.” 

Suddenly Noble transmogrified into evil personified. Despite the Republic’s usage of a ProPublica cut and paste smear passing as a “report”— actually containing nothing of substance, Noble didn’t  appear less than his name implies. What was missing was such disclosure from the Republic and the omission that ProPublica is a recipient of a massive funding stream from billionaire leftist George Soros with tentacles to radical Media Matters. Yet ProPublica innocently calls itself “an independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.”

Hogwash.

On Sunday it was Cathi Herrod’s turn to be eviscerated. Herrod is the president of the conservative Center for Arizona Policy which promotes and defends the foundational values of life, marriage, family, and religious liberty. She is also an effective lobbyist for those issues. That makes her ripe for a barrage of attacks by the daily. Her above the fold, Page One portrayal was titled, “A Political Force Behind the Scenes; Activist wields influence on Ariz. Laws.”

Let’s hope so.

The newspaper is now shining its high beam distortion campaign on state Rep. John Kavanagh, (LD-8).The conservative lawmaker has been the subject of articles, columns and even an editorial which actually employed the word “Yuck” throughout — regarding his participation in a roast of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Kavanagh’s participation — he was one of several “roasters” —  at the  private dinner wrapping up the Western Conservative Conference in Phoenix, is obviously the lynchpin.  The newspaper despises Arpaio. A banquet room full of his friends and admirers poking fun at him, would bring on teeth gnashing at the Republic. So now the well respected John Kavanagh is being savaged.

The leftist newspaper became emboldened after contributing to the bogus upheaval playing out in tandem with suspect redistricting that resulted in Russell Pearce’s loss of his district seat and the senate presidency. He was defeated by a one-termer, but that was of no consequence to the Republic.  They simply wanted Pearce, the architect of SB 1070, out.

Attorney General Tom Horne is now in the daily’s sights. While Superintendent of Public Instruction, he successfully fought the racist and anti-American MAS program in Tucson Unified School District. As Attorney General he has been a standout, but not one of their choosing. Conservative Horne urged the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse a Ninth Circuit ruling, arguing that Arizona has a right to deny Medicaid funding to abortion providers. Planned Parenthood is scheduled to receive more than $1.5 billion in Medicaid subsidies

What do Noble, Herrod, Arpaio, Kavanagh, Pearce and Horne all have in common? They are independent thinking, conservative Republicans, who don’t take their marching orders from the editorial board of the dying newspaper or the squishy party establishment elites, earning them attacks from the daily — which wants to see all of the top offices led by Democrats. When they endorse a Republican it will be a RINO or the weakest candidate, positioning the Democrat to win the general.

This isn’t rocket science.


Dem swagger embodies intolerance, unipartisanship

January 22, 2014

Andrew_Cuomo

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo: Calls Pro-Life and Pro-Second Amendment Americans “extremists” and tells them to leave New York.

“Their problem is not me and the Democrats Their problem is themselves. Who are they?” the governor asked. “Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”  Watch.

Barack_Obama_middle_finger

President Barack Obama: Threatens to continue circumventing Congress by issuing executive orders bypassing the legislative body, to carry out his pledge to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

“I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.” he boasted. “And I can  use that pen to sign executive orders.”  Watch.


The “choice” is death: The disgrace of Roe v. Wade

January 22, 2014

fetus sucking thumb

Today marks the 41st anniversary of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court travesty known as Roe v. Wade, when our nation’s highest court inexplicably ruled that state sanctioned slaughter of the most innocent was found in the previously unheard of right to privacy.

Over the intervening years, an estimated fifty-six million pre-born human babies have been killed — residing in what ought to be the safest place on Earth — the sanctuary of their mother’s uterus.

And just two days after the nation commemorated Martin Luther King’s birthday, comes this shocking statistic from New York: More black babies were aborted in the city than were born alive. Yet despite that disgraceful fact, New York’s liberal Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced that pro-life advocates haveno place in the state of New York.” The Weekly Standard reports Cuomo is now backtracking his contemptible intolerance after calls for his resignation.

Abortion is the Number One Killer of black Americans. More than HIV. More than diabetes. More than heart disease. More than cancer. Abortion snuffs out more black lives than all other causes of death, combined —according to the CDC.

The Radiance Foundation and its civil rights allies, defying Governor Cuomo’s intolerance,  launched the boldDREAM IS DEAD For 56 Million ad campaign in New York on the MLK holiday.  

The encouraging news is the abortion-on-demand trend is meeting public opposition. This Marist poll, released today, indicates more than six in 10 Americans believe that abortion is morally wrong. Just two percent of Americans indicated that it was not a moral issue. Andrew Cuomo, a father of three, is among that razor-slim minority.


AZ AG Tom Horne requests SCOTUS abortion review

November 21, 2013

Arizona’s Attorney General Tom Horne is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse the ruling issued by the liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that an Arizona law passed as HB 2800 — stripping Medicaid funding from abortion providers — is unconstitutional.

Horne argues that Arizona has a right to deny Medicaid funding to abortion providers.

Planned Parenthood, Arizona’s largest abortion provider, will receive more than $1.5 billion in Medicaid subsidies, enabling abortion funding in direct contravention of the will of Arizona taxpayers, through the actions of their elected legislative representatives.

The same circuit court ruled that the Arizona law and another challenge brought by Attorney General Horne and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery (Isaacson v. Horne) banning most abortions past 20 weeks of pregnancy (HB 2036) is also unconstitutional. In that case, the court reversed the ruling of then-Presiding U.S. (AZ) District Court Judge James Teilborg.

Horne, whose job it is to defend these laws, wants clarity in these fundamental life issues.

This March 27 post provides background regarding the expansion of funding for abortion providers. No wonder statewide GOP Legislative Districts have passed resolutions in opposition to Gov. Jan Brewer’s Medicaid Expansion in support of Obamacare.


Dems return to prayer: Thank God for abortionists

September 2, 2013

At 2012 National Convention re-nominating Obama, Democrats booed the inclusion of God in their party platform

When discussing differences between Republicans and Democrats the topic usually turns to individual responsibility vs. government paternalism; a commitment to smaller federal bureaucracy vs. higher taxes funding ever-increasing programs; and the conservative dedication to Constitutional-based liberty. Invariably, issues relating to the sanctity of life enter the equation.  Republicans generally put a premium on the God-given gift of human life.

The Iowa Republican blog reports that Iowa Democrat gubernatorial candidates Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson bowed their heads and solemnly closed their eyes as they joined 50 pro-abortion activists in an extended prayer that repeatedly celebrated abortion during a recent rally at the State Capitol. Des Moines activist Midge Slater took the podium and spent five-and-a-half minutes thanking God for abortion “rights,” abortion “doctors” and taxpayer funding for abortions. She also referred to the decision to have an abortion as “a blessing.”

Here are a few excerpts from the pro-abortion prayer:

We give thanks, oh Lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.”

“We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.”

“Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination. May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.”

“Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.” Click here for video.

 

Just last year the Democrats held their national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. The assembled delegates used the occasion to boo the inclusion of God in their party platform and jeer updated language identifying Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel. Watch their obscene antics included in the video here.


Dedicated Dem wore catheter during abortion filibuster

June 30, 2013

Never underestimate the commitment of liberal Democrats when it comes to defending their right to slaughter pre-born human babies.

The Democrat at the heart of the filibuster of a Texas bill to ban abortion after 20-weeks of pregnancy and require clinics that perform them to upgrade their facilities to be classified as ambulatory surgical centers — demonstrated her dedication to abortion by actually wearing a catheter as she took to the state senate floor.

Sen. Wendy Davis, 50, donned pink running shoes, a back brace and, yes, a urinary catheter, to equip her for the 11-hour filibuster she delivered in support of abortion. Texas filibuster rules disallow bathroom breaks. But Davis’ keen enthusiasm for being able to snuff out human life was overpowering.

“She’s a total fighter,” gushed liberal abortion activist Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Richards is the daughter of the late former Texas governor Democrat Ann Richards, a longtime advocate of abortion.

Matthew Balan writing for NewsBusters reports on the fawning praise and biased coverage the national media provided to this “new star in Democratic politics.” 

Watch this video in which she is being encouraged by CBS anchors Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell to run for governor of Texas based on her exploit — despite the fact that she barely squeaked into her state senate seat in November 2012 with 51.1% of the vote to her opponent’s 48.9%.


Self promoter Jeff Flake churns out “survival” video

June 5, 2013

This time as Jeff Flake goes publicity-hounding, he takes two of his sons along and (mostly) keeps his shirt on. Last time? Not at all. Flake’s 2009 egocentric photos of his survivalist adventure on a remote, uninhabited isle were worthy of the ridicule they received since he made book on the fact that he traveled bare-bones, sans even food and matches, but brought along his trusty tripod and camera to catalogue his bare-chested crab catching. The ego-trip was timed in anticipation of his senate race.

After taking flak from the local newspaper, and other outlets, he has given another ‘exclusive’ to the far-left and more appreciative Washington Post.

After the first trip, the AZ Republic’s Dan Nowicki wrote, “In the light of the romantic scandal involving South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, Flake is assuring his constituents that his ‘Robinson Crusoe’ adventure is not a cover story for any Argentina-style monkey business.” Quoting Flake, “I did tell (my wife) Cheryl, ‘That island is uninhabited, I promise,’ ” Flake said. “No one can accuse me of giving in to any kind of vices there, unless you call eating fish and coconuts a vice.”

Cheryl Flake need not worry. Surely she has read Ovid’s account of Narcissus, who also found joy near water?


Welcome to the GOP, Sen. Elbert Guillory

June 5, 2013

Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory has had his fill of liberalism and switched parties this past week.  His decision makes Sen. Guillory the first black Republican state senator in Louisiana since Reconstruction.

A Rutgers University educated lawyer, Guillory made his announcement at a luncheon of the @Large Conference, a national gathering of black conservatives. He said he was proud to end his association with “the Party of Disappointment.”

Among those disappointments, he said, are the fact that the Democrat Party has “left Louisiana behind” and has taken stands contrary to the state’s beliefs “on issues like abortion, Second Amendment rights and family values.”

Listen carefully as he articulates a powerful message, citing the pro-abortion bent of the Democrat party. But he didn’t stop there. He also takes Barack Obama to task for the scandals pervasive in his administration. “There is an alternative to what we have,” he said. “I want better for my country.  We must work through and past these disappointments…to a brighter day.”

His voting record, courtesy of Vote Smart, is a tribute to conservatism.

Guillory counseled the attendees, “We can lead our community to not putting all our eggs in one basket. To not being taken advantage of and neglected because we’re in the hip pocket of the Party of Disappointment. Now we all know what we received from that party. But let’s look at what we’ve received from the Republican Party.” Then Sen. Guillory details the actions taken by Republicans, often over the objections of Democrats, from the passage of Civil Rights legislation to the strides made in education.

Guillory was emphatic in his denunciation of his former party: “Their support of dependency over self-reliance, of everything but traditional marriage, of abortion on demand, their policies have encouraged the high teen birth rates, high school drop-out rates, high incarceration rates and very high unemployment rates,” the Republican state senator declared.
