On the night the head of the Planned Parenthood abortion company is slated to speak to the Democratic National Convention, the man behind the undercover videos has been vindicated. Again. Still mission fucking accomplished as far as the progressives are concerned. Reported that he set up Planned Parenthood, although he is vindicated the MSM will never report it, therefore the public still has in their mind that PP was set up.
As LifeNews reported last month, a Harris County, Texas judge dismissed the bogus misdemeanor charge against David Daleiden for allegedly trying to buy body parts from the Planned Parenthood abortion business he was exposing for selling them as a part of the Center for Medical Progress' undercover investigation.
Today, Harris County District Attorney's office on Tuesday dismissed all charges against Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, the pro-life adovcate who worked with him on the groundbreaking videos. From the Houston Chronicle:
The Harris County District Attorney's office on Tuesday dismissed all charges against anti-abortion activists who secretly videotaped Planned Parenthood officials in Houston.
David Robert Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were charged with tampering with a governmental record, for using a fake identification to gain access to the facility. In a surprise move before a hearing on the legitimacy of the indictment, prosecutors dismissed the charges.
Deleiden and his attorneys claimed victory for the anti-abortion movement, saying they were satisfied with the decision.
Daleiden, 27, and Sandra Merritt, 62, both of Davis, Calif., were indicted by a Harris County grand jury in January, accused of tampering with a government record for allegedly using fake driver licenses to conceal their identities while dealing with a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic.
According to attorney for Daleiden, District Attorney Devon Anderson shared confidential information with the abortion business, which she was supposed to be investigating for running afoul of state laws prohibiting the purchase or sale of body parts form aborted babies.
Yet, in recent court filings by the Harris County District Attorney's Office, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast's attorney Josh Schaffer admitted in a sworn declaration that the Harris County DA's office shared evidence with Planned Parenthood. That occurred even after the Texas Attorney General's office had forbidden Anderson's office from doing so.
The declaration was included as part of the DA office's response to David Daleiden's motion to quash the indictment against him, alleging prosecutorial misconduct.
Under oath, Schaffer, the Planned Parenthood attorney, admitted that he and Assistant District Attorney Sunni Mitchell attempted to do an end-run around the Texas Attorney General's directive to Mitchell not to share raw video footage with Planned Parenthood: "I was told that the Attorney General's Office agreed to give it to the HCDAO on the condition that the HCDAO not give it to PPGC. Mitchell told me that she would try to obtain the footage by other means."
Mitchell was responsible in 2013 for a Grand Jury that failed to indict Houston's late-term abortionist Douglas Karpen, after photographs and eyewitness testimony implicated him in illegal late-term abortions and killing babies who were born alive after failed abortions.
"The recent filings by the Harris County District Attorney confirm that the DA shared confidential documents and information with abortion provider Planned Parenthood, colluding with it in the prosecution of David Daleiden," said Thomas More Society Special Counsel, Peter Breen, attorney for David Daleiden.
Breen told LifeNews: "These filings also include evidence that appears to show that the DA's office worked with Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast to undermine the Texas Attorney General's independent investigation of that abortion provider. The conduct of Harris County prosecutors in this case is outrageous and illegal. We look forward to pressing our motion to quash this indictment in court."
This is the second time attorneys from Anderson's office and Planned Parenthood were accused of working together.
Daleiden is facing politically-motivated attacks on multiple fronts. Earlier this year, a Texas grand jury whose task was to investigate Planned Parenthood turned on the pro-life citizen journalist instead.
A Texas grand jury indicted Daleiden and another pro-life activist, Sandra Merritt, behind the videos. Instead of prosecuting Planned Parenthood for selling aborted baby parts, Daleiden was indicted for buying them.
Daleiden rejected a deal for probation on those charges in February, and his attorney said he demands an apology from the Texas district attorney who filed the bogus charges. If there was any true justice in this system the prosecutors would all be sued and disbarred. And yet the elites are wondering why the common man has lost all faith in the rule of law.

I'm increasingly having this conversation with some / a fair number of my clients. Two of my themes - if the IRS isn't playing by the rules, what incentive do the rest of us have for playing by the rules? And - if you're following the rules, you're a chump. Hillary! and Lois Lerner are mentioned every time.
[BALTIMORESUN] A threatened ethics probe and sharp criticism from elites who rarely experience the criminal justice system is a naked attempt to bully a chief prosecutorial officer into treating certain accused lawbreakers different from others. Indeed, distilled to its essence, the complaint against Ms. Mosby is that she demonstrates fidelity to the principle that no man is above the law. Her detractors would have it that poor blacks are charged when a grand jury finds probable cause, but not for officers.
It is equally clear that Ms. Mosby's detractors are not making a broader claim about prosecutorial discretion in the criminal justice system. Those speaking loudest and filing specious complaints curiously have been deafeningly silent when it comes to decisions that the same grand jury has made about other Baltimore citizens. The absence of outrage on behalf of everyday citizens exposes the logical consequences of their arguments: Two sets of laws for the people of Baltimore. But we live in a country where equality is the pillar of our democracy. To so blatantly advocate for preferential treatment for one class of citizens offends the very foundation upon which our
'To so blatantly advocate for preferential treatment for one class of citizens offends the very foundation upon which our democracy rests.'
If this is true, what are we to make of the recommendation of the FBI head with regard to prosecution of Ms. Clinton?
He made clear that the probable cause criterion was definitely met- he stated that she had committed several felonies. Yet he recommended not even having a prosecutor consider the convening of a grand jury.
His sin must therefore be an order of magnitude greater than that advocating that police officers should not be prosecuted when no evidence is to be presented that a crime was committed. (according to the presiding judge)
Mosby had these cops hung out to dry and all but lynched from the get go all to further her career. The city is 65% black, the cops are largely black, the prosecutor is black, the mayor is black, and their Congressman is black. They seem to be O.K. with replacing Constitution rights with a kangaroo justice system.
[DAILYCALLER] Democratic National Committee documents recently released by WikiLeaks include spreadsheets and emails that appear to show party officials planning which donors and prominent fundraisers to provide with appointments to federal boards and commissions.
The documents, which were circulated among top DNC officials in April, could raise legal questions for the party, says Ken Boehm, the chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.
"The disclosed DNC emails sure look like the potential Clinton Administration has intertwined the appointments to federal government boards and commissions with the political and fund raising operations of the Democratic Party," Boehm told The Daily Caller.
Rudi Guiliani for Homeland Security. He consulted -- maybe still does -- on anti-jihadi security after he retired as mayor of New York City. And he publicly tore up the check from that Saudi prince after 9/11. Ted Cruz for Supreme Court, Darth Bolton for Secretary of State, Chris Christie for Attorney General, assuming he's willing to give up the governor's mansion, or perhaps Ken Cuccinelli.
[FOXNEWS] Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz had been poised to easily win a seventh House term in November ‐ until she crossed paths with Bernie Sanders ...The only openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords... , resulting in a cascade of criticism and embarrassments that now includes an email expose that could upend her reelection bid.
Debbie Downer and Cynthia McKinney really do deserve each other...
[FOXNEWS] A remarkable scene unfolded Monday at the kickoff of the Democratic National Convention as Bernie Sanders ...The only openly Socialist member of the U.S. Senate. Sanders was Representative-for-Life from Vermont until moving to the Senate for the rest of his life in 2006, assuming the seat vacated by Jim Jeffords... supporters and other angry party members booed and jeered officials attempting to open proceedings ‐ leading the presiding officer to scold delegates, "We are all democrats,
That's the problem in a nutshell. They aren't supposed to be democrats, but Democrats. Though that the journalist heard the lack of a capital in all that noise is impressive, indeed.
and we need to act like it." "So getcher hand in that till and get my nephew a paying job on some committee!"
The opening made clear that the party is far from united, despite the new DNC leadership offering an official apology to Sanders and the party just as the convention was getting underway for what it called "the inexcusable remarks made over email" by brass hats that seemed to show a bias against Sanders. They got Stephanie Rawlins Blake, the mayor of Baldymore, to open the festivities. She's the one who told the cops to stand down and let the rioters riot during the Freddie Gray drama.
The statement from incoming party leader, Donna Brazile, and six other officials, offered a "deep and sincere apology" and said the emails, leaked by WikiLeaks, "do not reflect the values of the DNC or our steadfast commitment to neutrality during the nominating process."
The written statement also said the party will not tolerate disrespectful language.
But despite outgoing DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz resigning in the wake of the scandal, apparent Sanders supporters caused a ruckus inside the convention hall, leading some speakers to plead with the crowd to unite behind Hillary Clinton ... sometimes described as For a good time at 3 a.m. call Hillary and at other times as Mrs. Bill, never as Another Daniel Webster ... As Rep. Marcia Fudge tried to preside, boos and chants broke out, particularly whenever Clinton’s name was mentioned.
[FOXNEWS] A Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee compared Jewish Israeli settlers to termites on Monday while speaking at an event sponsored by an anti-Israel organization that supports boycotts of the Jewish state.
Rep. Hank Johnson, D- Ga., launched into a tirade against Israel and its policies toward the Paleostinians, comparing Jewish people who live in disputed territories to "termites" that destroy homes. Johnson also compared Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, a remark that drew vocal agreement from those in the room
A bunch of Bernie bots were wearing stickers supporting Palestine, so this is a Democrat problem, not a Black problem. Watch for booing again this year if Israel is mentioned when the party plank is read out.

[BREITBART] A staff member at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) referred to Latino voters with the term “taco bowl outreach” in a May 6 email released by Wikileaks.
The email, from DNC digital official and Obama campaign veteran Rebecca Christopher, reads:
Attached is a script for a new video we’d like to use to mop up some more taco bowl engagement, and demonstrate the Trump actually isn’t trying.
Let me know if you have any flags and thank you!
The day before, Republican frontrunner (and eventual nominee) Donald Trump had tweeted a message for Cinco De Mayo, in which he posed at his desk in the Trump Tower eating a taco bowl
The Left, always with the Freudian Projection on others when its in their hearts. Everyone else has to be a bigot because they are inherently so. Their rationalizations are just another form of the 'master race' theory pushed by another socialist.
