As Christy Lee Parker of Mad World News points out: The logic in the ‘case’ she presented has some … flaws. (Following block quotes are from that original piece.)
“The kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy are often the most heartbreaking, painful decisions for families to make. I have met with women who have, toward the end of their pregnancy, get the worst news one could get that their health is in jeopardy if they continue to carry to term …”
First, late-term abortions are sometimes referred to as post-viability abortions. That’s important because viability means the fetus is able to live outside the womb. So, at any time after 24 weeks gestation, which is considered the “point of viability,” a baby can be delivered to save the mother while also allowing the child a chance to live. During a late-term abortion, the child is still delivered, only it’s delivered dead rather than alive after the infant has been killed.
As a nurse, I want to be absolutely clear: If a mother’s life is in danger at any time after 24 weeks, let alone in the 9th month, the infant can be delivered via C-section to save the mother. The infant is given a chance at life. It does not need to be killed to save the mother. Never in the 9th month would that ever be a thought for most healthcare professionals. That’s not healthcare. That’s murder. But, there’s more.
As though that wouldn’t be enough to discount her argument for partial-birth abortion by itself.
In fact, in partial-birth abortions, the baby is delivered breech, which is difficult, painful, and puts the mother’s life at risk. So, when you hear that liberal talking point, where they like to ask, “What if the mother finds out that she could die during childbirth?” it’s important to know that a post-viability abortion isn’t going to prevent birth. In fact, birth is in the name — partial birth abortion. Only a c-section would prevent a vaginal birth, and the child doesn’t have to die for that. The child doesn’t have to die at all, and one look at the steps involved in the late-term abortion procedure clearly indicates this.
Besides any of these things, there’s the obvious corollary: You really don’t need special laws allowing abortion if your ‘real’ goal is the SAVING of lives. Do you need special laws governing conjoined twins? If the medical team can save both, they will. If only one life can be preserved, they don’t call it euthanasia, even if one life is forfeit. Because the real goal is MAXIMIZING the number of lives saved. There are no laws preventing the saving of maximum numbers of lives. Nor should there be.
If you are voluntarily ending a life (as with partial birth abortion) you are NOT saving the most lives possible. It is, in the truest and darkest sense, executing a choice.
So you can stop dressing partial birth abortion up as either ‘hard’ or ‘virtuous’. We see it for what it really is: the deliberate choice of someone’s death.

Trump vs. Khan. The media is abuzz about how (insert nasty adjective here) Donald Trump is for taking issue with the Khan family’s challenge of his character.
The usual talking heads cried foul. How dare anyone answer back to someone after they’ve been presented with a folded flag.
Right. Wikileaks showed us why they didn’t? The DNC signs off on their stories before they go to print. Here’s a recap of what they neglected to share:
When a Gold Star mother stands in public and says “I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son,” that’s a strong statement.
How did she respond? Hillary is on record in an interview with Chris Wallace. “I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.”
Matt Vespa quipped: Oh, so Smith is not only wrong — her grief may have induced some amnesia? Vespa also linked to this handy flashback:
FOX News confirmed today that the US ran guns from Benghazi to Syria before the attack on the US consulate on September 11, 2012. The US Ambassador to Libya and three others were killed in the terrorist attack. The Obama administration were running weapons to Syria.
FOX News reported Monday that the US was sending guns to Banias and Borj Islam, Syria before the Benghazi terrorist attack.
US Intelligence agencies were fully aware that weapons were moving from the terrorist stronghold in Libya to Syria before the attack that killed four Americans…
September 16, 2012 DIA Memo copied to the National Security Council, CIA, and others concluded the Benghazi terrorist attack was planned at least ten or more days in advance…
The memo also tied the attack to 9-11… No discussion of a demonstration or anti-Mohammad video.
US officials were aware that weapons were being shipped to Syria by the Port of Benghazi.
Senator Rand Paul questioned Hillary Clinton about this gun running program back in January 2013 during her testimony on the Benghazi terrorist attack. Hillary Clinton said she did not know about the program while testifying under oath.
Here is the transcript:
Sen. Rand Paul: My question is, is the US involved in any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling anyhow transferring weapons to Turkey out of Libya?
Hillary Clinton: To Turkey? I’ll have to take that question for the record. That’s, nobody’s ever raised that with me.
Sen. Rand Paul: It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that they may have weapons. And what I’d like to know is, that annex that was close by, were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries? ANy countries, Turkey included?
Hillary Clinton: Well, Senator you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. And, I will see what information was available.
Sen. Rand Paul: You’re saying you don’t know?
Rand Paul accused the Obama administration in January 2013 of running guns to Syrian rebels.
Rand Paul was right.
WATCH THE FOX NEWS CHANNEL REPORT BELOW:
Each of the companies listed appear to have made at least a portion of their donations before 2013. However, the Clinton Foundation’s vague listings prevent a more thorough review.
Kerry Humphrey, spokesman for the department’s Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs, said “senior representatives” from multiple federal agencies selected winners from among those nominated by U.S. embassies for “corporate excellence” abroad, including “demonstrating respect for human rights” and “promoting respect for the environment.”
The early days of Clinton’s second presidential campaign have been overshadowed by widespread criticism from across the political spectrum of foreign donations to the former chief U.S. diplomat’s family foundation, as well of her use of a private email and server to conduct government business while Secretary of State. She then unilaterally destroyed an estimated 30,000 emails she claimed were personal.
CLINTON: “Others had done it.”
THE FACTS: Although email practices varied among her predecessors, Clinton is the only secretary of state known to have conducted all official unclassified government business on a private email address. Years earlier, when emailing was not the ubiquitous practice it is now among high officials, Colin Powell used both a government and a private account. It’s a striking departure from the norm for top officials to rely exclusively on private email for official business.
CLINTON: “I fully complied with every rule I was governed by.”
THE FACTS: At the very least, Clinton appears to have violated what the White House has called “very specific guidance” that officials should use government email to conduct business.
Clinton provided no details about whether she had initially consulted with the department or other government officials before using the private email system. She did not answer several questions about whether she sought any clearances before she began relying exclusively on private emails for government business.
Federal officials are allowed to communicate on private email and are generally allowed to conduct government business in those exchanges, but that ability is constrained, both by federal regulations and by their supervisors.
Federal law during Clinton’s tenure called for the archiving of such private email records when used for government work, but did not set out clear rules or punishments for violations until rules were tightened in November. In 2011, when Clinton was secretary, a cable from her office sent to all employees advised them to avoid conducting any official business on their private email accounts because of targeting by unspecified “online adversaries.”
CLINTON: “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.”
THE FACTS: The assertion fits with the facts as known but skirts the issue of exchanging information in a private account that, while falling below the level of classified, is still sensitive.
The State Department and other national security agencies have specified rules for the handling of such sensitive material, which could affect national security, diplomatic and privacy concerns, and may include material such as personnel, medical and law enforcement data. In reviewing the 30,000 emails she turned over to the State Department, officials are looking for any security lapses concerning sensitive but unclassified material that may have been disclosed.
CLINTON: “It had numerous safeguards. It was on property guarded by the Secret Service. And there were no security breaches.”
THE FACTS: While Clinton’s server was physically guarded by the Secret Service, she provided no evidence it hadn’t been compromised by hackers or foreign adversaries. She also didn’t detail who administered the email system, if it received appropriate software security updates, or if it was monitored routinely for unauthorized access.
Clinton also didn’t answer whether the homebrew computer system on her property had the same level of safeguards provided at professional data facilities, such as regulated temperatures, offsite backups, generators in case of power outages and fire-suppression systems. It was unclear what, if any, encryption software Clinton’s server may have used to communicate with U.S. government email accounts.
Recent high-profile breaches, including at Sony Pictures Entertainment, have raised scrutiny on how well corporations and private individuals protect their computer networks from attack.
CLINTON: “When I got to work as secretary of state, I opted for convenience to use my personal email account, which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two. Looking back, it would’ve been better if I’d simply used a second email account and carried a second phone, but at the time, this didn’t seem like an issue.”
THE FACTS: If multiple devices were an inconvenience in the past, they may be something of an obsession now. Clinton told an event in California’s Silicon Valley last month that she has an iPad, a mini-iPad, an iPhone and a BlackBerry. “I’m like two steps short of a hoarder,” she said. She suggested she started out in Washington with a BlackBerry but her devices grew in number.
Smartphones were capable of multiple emails when she became secretary; it’s not clear whether the particular phone she used then was permitted to do so under State Department rules.
Surprise, surprise! Barack Obama social media – his Twitter feed and Facebook page – are driven by just a handful of trolls. What looks like hundreds of thousands of supporters is really just a couple of hundred people and their sock puppets.
We’ve got President Troll supported loudly by troll supporters. What a shock.
If you’re a regular commenter on political sites you’ll see that the Obamaphiles tend to follow a very distinct pattern of cutting and pasting the same comments over and over, and those comments often show up under multiple posters. It turns out that the Obama supporters are engaging in sock puppetry, creating fake user IDs to make it appear that there is more support for an idea than there really is.
Americans began heading anew this weekend to President Obama’s official Obamacare Facebook page to gather information on the new round of health care enrollment, share their experiences shopping for insurance on the federal exchange and voice their opinions on the president’s signature domestic achievement.
However, what some would view as a robust marketplace of ideas is actually controlled by just a few, an analysis of the Web page shows.
Sixty percent of the site’s 226,838 comments generated from September 2012 to early last month can be attributed to fewer than 100 unique profiles, according to an analysis completed by The Washington Times with assistance from an outside data analytics team.
The ObamaCare website is a clone of the President’s OFA Twitter feed. He appears to have about 43 million followers. Researchers at Barracuda, a computer security company in Campbell, California, found that about half of those “followers” were fake. In the name of accountability and transparency Organizing for Action declined to comment on Barracuda’s findings.
You really should read the whole article, the Washington Times has done an outstanding job of investigative journalism. The bottom line, the President’s overwhelming social media presence is every bit as phony as everything else about this President. He’s grubered* the American people now for about eight years and we’ve still got twenty six months to go.
We really think that history won’t be kind to President Present. He’ll likely be nothing more than a footnote, the first – and perhaps last – black president. He’ll be ignored by historians, who are largely liberals, because his record is so deceitful that they won’t be able to cover it up so they’ll just ignore it.
Kind of like in ancient Egypt when Pharaoh cast someone out of court and had all mention of them chipped from the histories or when Stalin had people photoshopped out of official pictures.
A fitting end for an empty suit pretending to sit in an empty chair. Clint Eastwood was right on the money.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that although she had disagreements with President Obama during her time at the State Department, she was largely proud of her career.
“[I]n many areas he and I worked together and I think we saw positive results, I’m very proud of what we did during the time I was there,” she said. “I think we restored America;s leadership at a time when it was in quite dire straights.”
Clinton shared a draft of her book’s manuscript with the White House before it was sent to publishers, according to a Politico report.
Former National Security Council and Obama adviser Tommy Vietor has also joined Clinton’s team to promote the book.
Clinton also praised Obama for his actions in the raid to kill Osama bin Laden.
“I looked at the president. He was calm. Rarely have I been prouder to serve by his side as I was that day,” she writes.
Judy Wallman, a professional genealogy researcher in southern California , was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that Senator Harry Reid’s great-great uncle, Remus Reid, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. Both Judy and Harry Reid share this common ancestor.
“Remus Reid was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory . His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.”
