Aborted organs harvested, sold: PP exec wants Lamborghini

July 22, 2015

Last week we posted “Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities,” which included a video exposing Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services and Obama administration advisor. She was seen enjoying her lunch and sipping wine while callously discussing the harvesting and sale of second trimester aborted baby body parts. Nucatola brazenly admits to using partial-birth abortions to get “intact parts” which increases the amount per human baby organ —- coolly describing the barbaric process she engages in to procure specific organs for buyers. 

Then just when you thought you’d seen it all, it gets worse. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has now released a second video. This one shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President, Dr. Mary Gatter, also casually sipping her beverage, flippantly haggling over payments for “intact fetal specimens” and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” to ensure intact body parts — brains, hearts, lungs and livers  — which are more marketable.

By the conclusion of the meeting, Gatter, a Harvard-educated medical doctor, 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.”

Gatter appears to be aware this violates laws governing tissue collection, but disregards them: “To me, that’s kind of a specious little argument,” she says.

Federal law requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection. (42 U.S. Code § 289g-2)

In 2014, Mary Gatter was honored with a “Women Mean Business” award by Democrat California State Sen. Carol Liu at a swank luncheon at the Pasadena Hilton. The honorees were chosen for having exceptional abilities that have contributed to the economic vitality, diversity, and — ironically — “the quality of life” of the 25th state Senate District.

Obamacare upheld: Justice Scalia redubs it SCOTUScare

June 25, 2015

Supreme Court takes massive swipe at freedom

States’ Rights took a massive hit as Chief Justice John Roberts again voted with his liberal colleagues in support of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

In the case King v. Burwell, Roberts writing the majority opinion stated, “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them.”

Roberts, a George W. Bush appointee was the disappointing key vote to uphold the law in 2012. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who dissented in 2012, voted with the leftist majority today.

Justice Antonin Scalia, summarizing his dissent from the bench, correctly asserted, “We should start calling this law SCOTUScare,” using the acronym for the Supreme Court of the United States. Scalia accused his colleagues of twice stepping in to save the law from what he considered worthy challenges.

Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas joined Scalia in the dissent, as they did in 2012. Joining Chief Justice John Roberts were the newly convinced Anthony Kennedy along with Associate Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan.

Leftist lunacy:CA boosts illegals’ healthcare, wages…

June 4, 2015

….and even tackles global warming

The Los Angeles Times reports that California state senators have approved a measure that allows at least 2 million illegal aliens to sign up for special healthcare programs offering the same benefits as Medi-Cal. Most Republicans in the leftward lurching state opposed the bill.

Readers of this blog might have difficulty navigating the report’s terminology since it uses the words “immigrants,” “undocumented,”  and “people in the country without authorization,’ to  describe our invaders —- who have no reason to believe they and the rest of their friends and relatives are not welcome to keep flooding into the United States since they are so hospitably received. For ease in reading, we have thoughtfully provided “Lingo,” our still popular primer.

In pitching Senate Bill 4 to his colleagues, sponsoring Sen. Ricardo Lara said, “We are talking about our friends. We are talking about our neighbors and our families who are denied basic healthcare in the richest state of this union.” Democrat Lara, the son of illegals, failed to note that many cities and municipalities in the state are in financial meltdown or have actually filed for bankruptcy. Such facts are of no consequence. The bill passed 28 – 11.

The California senate has been on a roll. In passing job killing Senate Bill 3,  it also voted to raise the minimum wage to $13 an hour from $9. The argument is that an employee working full-time and earning $9 per hour takes home $18,000 annually before taxes, which is 75% of the federal poverty line for a family of four. But minimum wage jobs were never intended to support a family. They have long provided part-time employment for teens and college students who realize that education is the way out of poverty. Now with business feeling the pinch, and cutbacks occurring, many students will be priced out of the workplace.  

Still the senate liberals were not content.  They also passed Senate Bill  350, intended to combat global warming. Along with the dramatic reduction of petroleum in gasoline it requires, it also mandates state utilities generate at least 50 percent of their electricity from solar, wind and other renewable energy sources by 2030 and triggers a fundamental shift in the types of vehicles Californians drive and the way they power their homes. This report in the San Jose Mercury-News tells the story.

Less than a year ago we posted ‘Have you heard? The USA is “the other Mexico.”  It’s filled with information well worth reviewing. This video clip of California Gov. Jerry Brown greeting Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto is instructive. In response, Pena Nieto brassily called on other states to “evolve” like California so the United States can be more like his home country….. impoverished and crime ridden.

Jerry Brown stands as a monument of the insanity that undergirds liberalism.


Leftist Sen. wants RICO law to criminalize global warming skeptics

June 3, 2015

The Weekly Standard reports on the colossal infringement on liberty that a Democrat U.S. Senator is peddling regarding the disputed theory of a global warming crisis.

Sheldon Whitehouse, representing Rhode Island, the nation’s smallest state, appears to have a constitutional comprehension of equal size as he slams global warming skeptics, claiming they  need to be reined in under RICO statutes. What makes his view even more appalling is the fact that he was Rhode Island’s U.S. Attorney —- appointed by Bill Clinton —-  and was the state’s Attorney General, before being elected to the senate.  All the more alarming, he is a member of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution.

This GovTrack analysis of Whitehouse places him to the left of Sens. Blumenthal, Boxer and Schumer and veering close to self-described Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders.

Writing in the Washington Post, Whitehouse declared, “Fossil fuel companies and their allies are funding a massive and sophisticated campaign to mislead the American people about the environmental harm caused by carbon pollution. Their activities are often compared to those of Big Tobacco denying the health dangers of smoking. Big Tobacco’s denial scheme was ultimately found by a federal judge to have amounted to a racketeering enterprise.”

Given his legal background, Whitehouse’s convoluted thinking is inexcusable.  Passed in 1970, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a federal law designed to combat organized crime in the United States. It allows prosecution and civil penalties for racketeering activity performed as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise. RICO statutes were never intended to be an infringement on our First Amendment rights.

Not buying into the alarmist global warming scheme, which has now morphed into climate change, due to recent colder than usual temperatures around the globe —- part of cyclical meteorological fluctuations —- could now makes you a criminal.

The electorate of Rhode Island should be embarrassed. The rest of us should be very concerned.


AZ GOP’s Cap & Trade and Obamacare amnesia

May 29, 2015

Make no mistake. Although Seeing Red AZ, like the vast majority of Arizona conservatives, actively supports the defeat of John McCain, we are not onboard with liberal Ann Kirkpatrick who recently announced her challenge to the RINO senator. 

We optimistically look forward to a face-off led by state Sen. Kelli Ward, a uniquely qualified Mohave County whirlwind.  Sen. Ward, a family physician, has opened an exploratory campaign, impressing crowds as she travels the state with her well articulated conservative message.

In tackling the liberal Kirkpatrick, we found it curious that the AZ GOP chose to raise the issue of her votes in support of Obama endorsed Cap and Trade and his signature Obamacare.

They must have suffered a memory lapse regarding Jeff Flake’s stunning complicity when the votes on these mega-issues were taken. The appropriately named Flake was one of only two Republicans who didn’t bother to show up —- which was a good as voting for the so-called American Clean Energy and Security Act (Cap and Trade), a massive government expansion with dire consequences for American taxpayers and manufacturing. By his absence, Jeff Flake helped the Democrats pass a junk science, climate change-based, massive national energy tax, restricting carbon emissions by imposition of exorbitant penalties against the U.S., which other nations are able to skirt.

Flake claimed a “family conflict” due to his daughter’s participation in the talent portion of a teen beauty pageant in Alabama to be held the weekend following the vote. His fellow Republican dodger John Sullivan was in alcohol rehab, though the Dems thought the vote was crucial enough to pull Rep. Patrick Kennedy out of his drug treatment program.  

Another “family conflict” ensured Flake was also MIA on the crucial vote to restore funding of Obamacare. His mentor, John McCain, voted with the Democrats.

In giving cover to McCain, the AZ GOP oddly referred to the lackluster Kirkpatrick as Arizona’s “Most Progressive Democrat in Congress,”  completely obscuring the disastrous records of Raul Grijalva; Ed Pastor, succeeded last election by Ruben Gallego; and former Green Party member Kyrsten Sinema. The voters of the First Congressional District were so dissatisfied with Kirkpatrick’s performance they booted her out after her first term. She regained the seat by a slim margin in 2013 when U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, who replaced her, relocated to CD 4 and was returned to congress representing that district.

Kirkpatrick is not formidable. Neither is she any different from either Flake or McCain. We have gotten the same treatment from them that she dishes out. The only difference is they deceptively run as Republicans.


Something to think about…while you’re still able

May 24, 2015

The culture of death is alive and well at the Netherlands’ Life End Clinic —- aided by a judicial order that a dementia patient be euthanized by lethal injection in accordance with her family’s wishes.

But it’s not just the judiciary that views less than perfect life with such blatant disregard.

A majority —- 52 percent —- of Dutch doctors who perform euthanasia say they would euthanize dementia patients.

Not to miss a trick, the facility thoughtfully includes a mobile service for those who prefer the patient die at home.

According to the Ministry of Justice Termination of Life on Request and Assisted Suicide (Review Procedures) Act in Practice, Question 14:

“A doctor’s main duty is indeed to preserve life. In the case of euthanasia a doctor’s duties conflict: on the one hand, doctors have a duty to do all they can to keep the patient alive. On the other hand, they have a duty to relieve the patient’s suffering.”

Cruz: Quick on his feet on Obamacare, conservatism

March 25, 2015

Since Ted Cruz’ Monday announcement of his candidacy for President of the United States, the MSM has been posed to discredit him or cause him to stumble.  His appearance on “CBS This Morning” Tuesday was proof positive.

But the Texas Senator was more than ready for the bombardment when network correspondent Vladimir Duthiers pounced, asking Cruz if he would “take away” the health care of 16 millions of Americans insured under Obamacare if he was elected president

“Well, you know, those numbers don’t tell the whole picture,” Cruz calmly responded. “For one thing, the bulk of those numbers are coming from expanded Medicaid. And Medicaid is a program where a lot of people who are on Medicaid are not getting health care. Medicaid is a system that is already overburdened and more and more people are just getting waiting lists and not actually getting health care.”

Cruz added, “Beyond that, remember six million people had their health insurance canceled because of Obamacare. You are not doing someone a favor if you cancel the health insurance they like, and then force them to buy new health insurance at higher premiums that covers less.

The newly declared Republican candidate also noted that Obamacare is the “single largest job killer” in the United States.

And try as they might to elicit a misstep, Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King also found him unflappable. 

Nice start.
