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.

Emperor Obama’s unilateral gun grab

July 21, 2015

Do you have difficulty balancing a checkbook? Obama wants your guns

In yet another massive intrusion on the rights of American citizens, Barack Obama is intent on unilaterally restricting the Second Amendment freedoms of certain gun owners who claim the Social Security benefits they paid for during their working years.

Currently about 4.2 million adults receiving monthly benefits have “representative payees” handle their banking and bill paying for them. Turning those duties over to a trusted family member or friend should not entail the loss of Constitutional rights.

Not only would this amount to the largest gun grab in American history, but according to this Fox News report, the governmental infringement would take place without any due process protections for recipients, amounting to a nullification of Second Amendment rights for millions of Americans who don’t pose a threat to themselves or anyone else.

The Social Security Administration (SSA), which has never taken part in the background check system, provides advice and a phone number for turning in people who raise “concerns.” The government site even provides a “webinar” to educate “payees who serve multiple beneficiaries.” 

The Veterans Administration has already implemented a similar program to designate veterans as “prohibited persons” when they have a fiduciary assigned to administer their VA benefits. Already, 177,000 vets have been swept into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System  through the overreach of bureaucratic tentacles.

Like the Social Security program, the VA procedures are also devoid of significant due process protections or any requirement that the beneficiary be found a danger to self or others

The National Rifle Association correctly assesses, “The implications of this policy are too far-reaching to fathom at present. Social Security is one of the more prolific and relied upon Federal programs in American history. That Obama’s directive could so easily be implemented within the SSA suggests that bureaucrats could effectively cloak such a program in any agency within the growing leviathan that is the federal government.”

Call your members of congress and demand that Obama’s unprecedented and unilateral attempt to implement the largest gun grab in American history be stopped. 


Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities

July 16, 2015

Planned Parenthood’s roots deeply embedded in Arizona

Many of us have seen the macabre video showing Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services enjoying her lunch and sipping wine while nonchalantly discussing the harvesting of aborted baby body “parts.”  Hearts, lungs and livers, also called “specimens” command a good price. “Lower extremities” are in demand, as well, she says.

In the video, released by The Center for Medical Progress, Nucatola is seen at a business lunch with actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company. Nucatola callously describes the process she engages in to procure intact body parts for buyers. 

To carry on this grisly legacy, she is involved in the training of new abortionists at Planned Parenthood and also performs abortions herself at a Los Angeles area clinic up until 24 weeks —- on 6-month pre-born human babies.

A separate clip shows Planned Parenthood President and CEO Cecile Richards praising Nucatola’s work to facilitate connections for fetal tissue collection. “Oh good,” Richards says when told about Nucatola’s support for fetal tissue collection at Planned Parenthood, “Great. She’s amazing.”

LifeNews reports that Richards, who took time off from her post to campaign for Barack Obama’s reelection, makes over $500,000 a year. A onetime deputy chief of staff to Nancy Pelosi, Richards is the daughter of former Texas governor Ann Richards. In 1996, Cecile Richards founded the Texas Freedom Network, an organization specifically formed to oppose the “Christian Right.” 

There are also even more  noteworthy Arizona connections to Planned Parenthood. Gloria Feldt, the former CEO and president of the nation’s largest abortion mechanism, interviewed by Connie Chung in the video, began her career in the death industry heading the Central and Northern Arizona office. She and her husband, Alex Barbanell, live part-time in Scottsdale. And you might be surprised to know who started Planned Parenthood in our state. None other than Peggy Goldwater, Barry’s wife of 51 years. It was also a cause near and dear to Barry’s heart. The group’s most prestigious award is named in honor of the not-so-conservative, conservative icon’s wife.

Leftist gun restrictionists have no trouble taking aim

June 22, 2015

Breitbart nails it: “This is the playing field”

The irony is difficult to miss. Leftists, who want to restrict the Second Amendment freedoms accorded to law-abiding Americans, always find a way to get their shots in, so to speak.

Breitbart News highlights the hypocrisy with the deplorable photo accompanying this post: “Guess the political party: AP photo lines pistol up with Senator, 2016 candidate Ted Cruz’s brain.”

Arizonans are well aware of this despicable tactic. In the 2006 congressional race, liberal Democrat Harry Mitchell depicted Republican U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth in the crosshairs of a rifle scope in a television ad.

No stranger to politics —- Mitchell was the former chairman of the Arizona Democrat Party, a state legislator, Tempe Councilman and Mayor —- yet he thought that abhorrent depiction was perfectly acceptable.

Democrats are nothing if not two-faced on the issue of guns. They want to rein in the rights of America’s gun owners, but desire easy access to self-protection for themselves. Our illustrative post “Dem gun hypocrites,” is proof positive.

Liberal gun restrictionist, Mark Kelly, husband of Gabrielle Giffords, has relentlessly advocated for suppressing gun rights of others, but was photographed in 2013 making weapons purchases at a Tucson gun store, including “high capacity” magazines, an AR-15 and a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol.

When it comes to Democrats and guns, hypocrisy reigns supreme.


CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield’s ‘apologies’ still miss the mark

June 16, 2015

Appalling comment should result in her dismissal

After first flippantly stating she “misspoke,” CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield on Monday finally used the word “apology.”

This past Saturday, the experienced reporter enthused over a man using an armored vehicle to launch a gunfire attack against the Dallas Police Department headquarters as “courageous and brave.”

After facing a storm of criticism, the newly anxious Whitfield announced, “I understand now how offensive it was.  I misspoke, terribly. I misused those words terribly and I sincerely apologize for making this statement and I understand now how offensive it was.” She added, “I want to reiterate that in no way do I believe the gunman was courageous or brave. I sincerely apologize.”

Also on Monday, Dan Patrick, the Lieutenant Governor of Texas, wrote this letter to Jeffrey Zucker, President of CNN, regarding her shameful remarks. Lt. Gov. Patrick requested that CNN remove Whitfield from her news host duties for her obvious disrespect of the men and women serving as law enforcement officers around the nation.

Just a simple question, Ms. Whitfield: Why do you “understand now how offensive” your words were, when a couple of days ago they suited you just fine?

AZ Justice? Short time for major crime

June 15, 2015

As Americans await the U.S. Supreme Court’s decisions on same-sex marriage, Obamacare,  Arizona’s challenge to the so-called “independent” congressional redistricting commission and other issues under consideration, Valley residents can ponder the odd sentence handed down closer to home last week by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Joseph Welty.

Vrouyr Manoukian, a cocky 24-year old who reportedly entered the courtroom smiling and waving at his family, killed his roommate Matthew McMaster, 24, in July 2013. According to this news report, McMaster died of blunt-force trauma to his head. His body was set on fire and dumped in the desert.

Manoukian was convicted of negligent homicide and abandonment of a body. While awaiting trial, he was jailed for 740 days. That time will count toward his paltry 4 ½ year sentence —- giving him roughly 2 ½ more years in prison.

Judge Welty determined  the aggravating factors in the case were the harm done to McMaster’s family, the fact that another roommate, Randall Lee Young, acted as an accomplice, and the evidence that McMaster’s body was dumped and burned beyond recognition. Young, who has an extensive criminal history, was charged with a probation-only offense.

The mitigating factors? Manoukian’s lack of criminal history, his “sniffling” display of remorse, and his acceptance of responsibility for his actions.

Welty was appointed to the bench in 2007 by Gov. Janet Napolitano.


Community organizer in the WH still trying to organize communities

June 13, 2015

Barack Obama’s focus as a community organizer has grown along with the powerful office he holds as President of the United States. Now as a lame duck with his second term closing in on him, he still has leftist agenda items he appears determined to implement.

Currently his sights are set on communities across America that don’t meet his standards of what a diversified community should look like.

Stanley Kurtz writing for National Review explains the far-reaching regulations contained in Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH):

“In the early stages, the AFFH rule will mandate the collection of information on the precise racial, ethnic, and income distribution of housing in nearly every census tract in the nation. Once that information has been gathered, escalating pressure will be placed on municipalities across the country to abandon local zoning policies and re-engineer housing stock at local expense. Municipalities will be pressured to join regional consortia that will have the effect of taking housing decisions out of the hands of elected officials and the citizens they represent. And the federal government will pressure localities to build dense housing developments near transportation hubs and business areas.”

Kudos to AZ U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-CD 4), who sponsored the amendment blocking the passage of AFFH —- a social engineering regulation of the worst kind. It would rig federal grant monies intended to address community improvements to compliance with the regime’s standards.

“American citizens and communities should be free to choose where they would like to live and not be subject to federal neighborhood engineering at the behest of an overreaching federal government,” said Gosar, who is leading an effort in the House to block the regulations. Watch Gosar’s appearance on FOX News.

If enacted, this measure could depress property values as cheaper homes crop up in wealthier neighborhoods and raise taxes, Gosar warned. It could also tilt the balance of political power as more Democrat-leaning minorities are funneled into Republican-leaning neighborhoods.
