Planned Parenthood Refuses Title X Funding in Response to Trump Administration Restrictions
2019-08-21
[NATIONALREVIEW] Planned Parenthood
...has received federal funding since 1970, when President Richard Nixon signed into law the Family Planning Services and Population Research Act. It is sometimes described as the gynecololgical wing of the Democratic party.

will refuse all Title X funding rather than comply with the Trump administration’s restrictions governing the discussion of child sacrifice abortion at clinics that participate in the program, the group announced Monday.

Planned Parenthood decided to abandon Title X, which accounts for roughly 15 percent of its overall federal funding each year, in response to a Trump administration rule barring clinics that participate in the program from referring women to child sacrifice abortion providers.

"When you have an unethical rule that will limit what providers can tell our patients, it becomes really important that we not agree to be in the program. But to be clear we’re doing that because we’re being forced out," the group said in a Monday statement. "Trump’s administration is trying to force us to keep information from our patients. The gag rule is unethical, dangerous, and we will not subject our patients to it."

Prior to its withdrawal, Planned Parenthood was receiving $60 million of the $286 million allocated annually through Title X. The organization will continue to receive roughly $500 million in annual Medicaid reimbursements from the federal government.

A federal appeals court ruled in July that the Trump administration’s rule change could take effect while a lawsuit, brought by Planned Parenthood and other groups in February, runs its course. The Department of Health and Human Services then gave Planned Parenthood until August 19 to submit a plan demonstrating that it would make "good faith efforts" to comply with the new rule. Planned Parenthood requested a stay from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals last week that would have delayed the rule-implementation deadline its legal challenge was resolved, but the court rejected that request.

A person doing a certain activity longer than normal could be a sign of the disease. What is it?
Now where is that Burg link? Do I have to call Fred again ?
Dementia said on their website: "Dementia is usually caused by degeneration in the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain responsible for thoughts, memories, actions, and personality.

"Death of brain cells in this region leads to the cognitive impairments that characterise dementia.

"Most disorders associated with dementia are progressive, degenerative, and irreversible. The two major degenerative causes of dementia are Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia."

Symptoms vary between Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, but there are broad similarities between them all.

Alzheimer’s disease international said: "The most common signs are memory loss and the loss of practical abilities, which can lead to withdrawal form work or social activities.

A person with dementia may become very passive, sitting in front of the television for hours, sleeping more than usual, or appear to lose interest in hobbies."

O'Rourke gun plan calls for mandatory buybacks, universal sale checks
2019-08-17
[UPI] Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke;
...Kennedyeque businessman, musician, skateboard artiste, and politician who represented Texas' 16th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 2013 to 2019. Beto is a Latino nickname for people whose names end in "erto," like "Roberto" or "Alberto." He is seeking the Dem nomination for President in 2020 because he has nice hair and lots of teeth. He was born into a local political family in El Paso, Texas and is a graduate of a prep school and Columbia University, which is not in Texas. In 2005, he was elected to the El Paso City Council. He was elected to Congress in 2012 after defeating eight-term incumbent Silvestre Reyes in the Democratic primary. He declined to seek re-election in 2018, instead running for the Senate against Republican Ted Cruz, running a campaign that drew national attention because of his skateboarding skills. A few months after he lost, he announced his campaign for President...
, having resumed his campaign, detailed a plan Friday to curb gun violence by imposing a national gun licensing system and registry, and a mandatory buyback program for assault weapons.

O'Rourke took time away from his campaign to aid the community in El Paso, Texas, where a shooting attack two weeks ago killed more than 20 people.

"We must connect these dots. And we must not let these moments define us," O'Rourke said in his plan Friday. "Instead, what will define America from El Paso, Texas, to Baltimore, Md., to reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
...home of Al Capone, the Chicago Black Sox, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel...
, Ill., is the resilience and radical hope that communities have shown in response to these tragedies."

O'Rourke's plan lists a number of reforms, including the buyback program that would remove all banned assault weapons from private ownership -- a proposal that goes further than any presented so far by the Democratic field.

Planned Parenthood Scolds CNN, DNC for Excluding Abortion Issue During Debate

took to Twitter to scold CNN and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for omitting abortion as an issue during the Democrat Party debate Tuesday evening.

"Tonight, voters missed an opportunity to hear how Democratic candidates will approach a fundamental issue that impacts their lives," Planned Parenthood posted, as MRC NewsBusters observed. "Candidates spent more than 30 minutes debating health care, but it’s meaningless if we cannot access it."

Judge Dismisses DNC Hacking Suit Against Trump Campaign
2019-07-31
[PJMedia] Fantasy on the debate stage and fantasy in the courtroom.

In unusually frank language, a federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit over hacked documents by the Democratic National Committee against the Trump campaign, saying they "did not participate in any wrongdoing in obtaining the materials in the first place."

The DNC lawsuit was silly. It tried to show that the Trump campaign worked hand in glove with WikiLeaks, the hacking outfit that published the Democrats' documents. In the 81-page opinion, the judge, Clinton appointee John Koeltl, slammed the suit as "entirely divorced" from the facts in the case.

Ilhan Omar shares tweet mocking, endorsing violence, beating of Rand Paul
2019-07-30
[WashingtonExaminer] Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., shared a scathing tweet about Sen. Rand Paul on Monday written by comedian Tom Arnold, which said, "Imagine being Rand Paul's next door neighbor and having to deal with @RandPaul lying cowardly circular whiney bullcrap about lawn clippings. No wonder he ripped his toupee off."

Arnold's tweet was in response to liberal writer and noted President Trump critic, Mehdi Hasan, who had made disparaging comments about the Kentucky Republican, after Paul suggested last week that he would buy a ticket for Omar to go back to her native Somalia to "appreciate America more."

Arnold's tweet was an apparent reference a 2017 incident, in which Rene Boucher, Paul's neighbor (a rabid Bernie Sanders supporter) in Bowling Green, Kentucky, attacked him over a disagreement about lawn refuse. Boucher pleaded guilty to the assault, which left Paul with six cracked ribs, bruised lungs, and a "living hell" of pain.

Check out the responses to Omar's retweet. Folks disgusted.

Donald Jr sums up the typical PMSNBC 5th column response.
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar retweeting calls for political violence against @randpaul. I’m not surprised, and look forward to the forthcoming silence from the media on the issue.
Minnesotans will note the complete lack of coverage by our official Pravda Twin Cities DNC media

style='float:right;border:1px solid midnightblue;padding:3px;margin:3px;' />[Washington Examiner] Sen. Bernie Sanders said if the U.S. wants help bring peace to the Middle East, it cannot prioritize the wants and needs of Israel over all else.

The 2020 presidential candidate, who is Jewish, said the tensions between Israel and Palestinians have become worse under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"I lived in Israel … I have family in Israel. I am Jewish. I am not anti-Israel. I believe that the people of Israel have absolutely the right to live in peace, independence, and security. End of discussion, that is what I fervently believe. But I think what has happened is in recent years under Netanyahu, you have an extreme right-wing government with many racist tendencies," Sanders told the "Pod Save America" podcast.

He also took shots at the Trump administration's overtures to Israel, which includes moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, potentially putting at risk peace negotiations with the Palestinians.

"Our policy cannot just be pro-Israel, pro-Israel, pro-Israel. It has got to be pro-region, working with all of the people, all of the countries in that area," he said, adding that Palestinians deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
Sadly, we so seldom see wife Jane these days.
Sanders also said he would "absolutely" consider using the billions of dollars in military aid it sends to Israel each year as leverage to force the Israeli government to act differently.

The investigators need to be investigated

[LegalInsurrection] My initial reaction to Robert Mueller’s congressional appearance was one of pity. He was a pathetic character on the stage, seemingly bewildered at times, mentally frail, and vulnerable as a witness.

What a way to end a career and to be remembered by friend and foe alike.


But emotion is not the way to assess what we saw. It’s not an overstatement to say that the Hillary-DNC-Fusion GPS-Steele operation, as embraced by influential members of the FBI and possibly intelligence services, compounded by leaks to and collusion of a willing media, came close to undermining a presidential election before and after Election Day.

In many ways the Mueller testimony confirmed our worst fears that the Mueller Investigation was the Mueller Investigation in name only, that it was run the way the pre-Mueller investigation of Trump was run ‐ by people with a political agenda to override the 2016 election result, or at least to make sure it didn’t happen again in 2020. It’s a theme we’ve covered here pretty much since the Inauguration.

Whether Robert Mueller was a mere figurehead or in control, he was a participant. So while he was a sorry figure in the congressional hearings, and his appearance did substantial damage to Democrat and media plans, the gravity of what happened should not be lessened. It almost worked.

The media, of course, was a full participant in what happened. Just when you thought the major organizations who control almost all of popular and social media couldn’t get any worse, they do. This all takes place while high tech companies put the thumb on the scale by penalizing non-liberal content.

You know where I’m going, don’t you? Dread.

After Mueller had testified for several hours, and it was clear that it was a disaster for Democrats and the media, I was asked by someone who works in the neighborhood, knows about this website, and is a big Trump supporter, how it was going. We talked about the hearings for a little while, since he was unable to watch, then he asked me: "Do you still have hope?"

That simple question somewhat set me aback.

My answer, paraphrased:

Yes, I still have hope, but it’s hard. When the weight of the media, entertainment and educational industries is so hostile to non-liberals, and when it combines with the power of the state, it’s tough. It seems overwhelming at times. It’s emotionally and physically draining. And it’s been going on for several decades. Yet I still have hope despite that overwhelming disadvantage.

It’s almost unimaginable that after this decades-long onslaught, Republicans nonetheless control the Senate and the presidency, and most state legislatures. How can that possibly be, it’s seemingly impossible. The American people are resilient, and that gives me hope.

But vigilance must be eternal, going to sleep politically even for a year or two is not an option. You cannot give an inch, or they’ll take a mile. And people need to be held accountable.

We’re doing construction at the house. The contractors we’re using told me they’ve never seen the economy this strong, that they can’t hire enough people for all the work they could get. Some of the workers blasted Rush Limbaugh on the radio. I smiled.

We can’t let the Mueller fiasco be forgotten. This was really dangerous, almost beyond imagination.

The investigators need to be investigated.
The best defense is certainty of retaliation - I said at the time that Christine Blasey Ford's life needs to be turned into hell. Muller and Co hundredfold.

But if it was up to Mayor Nikuyah Walker, she'd change it to "Liberation and Freedom Day." The alternative holiday, which she proposed at a city council meeting last month, would instead celebrate the emancipation of slaves in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Walker is one of several people advocating for the change because it's well known that Jefferson, the third president of the United States and drafter of the Declaration of Independence, was also a slave owner.

Some citizens are up in arms over her suggestion, accusing her of trying to sanitize history. But she has no clue why because, as she explained in a recent message, Jefferson is still celebrating his birthday "in hell." She shared that comment on her official Facebook page.

Walker got virtual high fives from some of her followers, but it looks like quite a few of her constituents were appalled by the message. Some users called her "judgmental and disturbing," while another told Walker, "your hate is unflattering and unbecoming."

"If you think Jefferson and Charlottesville are so damnable, how come you still live there and are mayor?," another commenter, Joleen Hart, wrote. "Thank God for Thomas Jefferson. He helped make our country free."

Walker isn't the only one seeking to erase Jefferson. For instance, the Democratic Party of Virginia wants to rename the annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Richmond, recognizing Jefferson and Andrew Jackson, to the "Blue Commonwealth Gala."

style='float:right;border:1px solid midnightblue;padding:3px;margin:3px;' />[Genesius Times] After being horrified by the ICE detention facility parking lot last year, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been stricken with PTSD as ICE facilities have popped up everywhere across the country.

"At the grocery store; at the hardware store. Trump is putting these ICE detention centers everywhere and it’s horrifying!" Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview.

Genesius Times investigators have found that the living conditions of these new ICE detention centers are atrocious with freezing temperatures and very little room.

"It’s inhumane. We need to release these immigrants into the general population!" Ocasio-Cortez added.

It is estimated that there are 1 million of these new ICE detention centers across the country.

"What kind of world do we live in that allows this type of thing?" Ocasio-Cortez added. "It’s like a big national concentration camp!"’

One immigrant was asked how he felt of the detention facility. He answered, "It’s a little run down, but it’s nice to be able to get ice on a hot day like today."

Exclusive: The true origins of the Seth Rich conspiracy theory. A Yahoo News investigation.
2019-07-10
For sure. If it hadn't been for the Russians, nobody would have ever thought of this.
[Yahoo News] In the summer of 2016, Russian intelligence agents secretly planted a fake report claiming that Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was gunned down by a squad of assassins working for Hillary Clinton, giving rise to a notorious conspiracy theory that captivated conservative activists and was later promoted from inside President Trump’s White House, a Yahoo News investigation has found.

Russia’s foreign intelligence service, known as the SVR, first circulated a phony "bulletin" ‐ disguised to read as a real intelligence report ‐about the alleged murder of the former DNC staffer on July 13, 2016, according to the U.S. federal prosecutor who was in charge of the Rich case. That was just three days after Rich, 27, was killed in what police believed was a botched robbery while walking home to his group house in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, D.C., about 30 blocks north of the Capitol.
