Courts Silence ‘Most Damning’ Videos of Planned Parenthood

Center for Medical Progress (CMP) founder and investigative journalist David Daleiden is fighting a gag order blocking the release of more than a dozen undercover videos further exposing Planned Parenthood’s black market butchery and profit of aborted baby body parts. According to Daleiden, the footage “includes some of the most damning and incriminating footage we ever recorded.” If this isn’t abuse of judicial power, we’re not sure what qualifies. But then again leftist have never been bothered much by the prospect of suspending First Amendment protections when it suits their agenda. Let’s hope for victory in appeals.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Center for Medical Progress (CMP) founder and investigative journalist David Daleiden is trying to lift a gag order prohibiting him from releasing at least a dozen undercover videos which allegedly further expose Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers’ unsavory and possibly illegal organ-harvesting operation.

Daleiden told the media that his attorneys are filing motions to lift a gag order so he can release the videos, which he says “includes some of the most damning and incriminating footage we ever recorded.”

CMP began releasing disturbing undercover footage of the abortion industry leader in 2015, showing Planned Parenthood officials openly haggling over the prices of body parts of aborted babies and nonchalantly discussing their gruesome procurement methods.

Ferguson Activists Recite Marxist Pledge at Anti-Kavanaugh Event

They know not what they do. Do they? Because Ferguson activists – whose cause celebre was protesting white-cop-on-black-criminal violence – have transitioned to reciting Commie pledges to “defend” Roe v. Wade, ironically responsible for the murder of millions of black babies. Thus, leftist activist Brittany Packnett appeared on the panel to oppose the SCOTUS nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as part of the “Rise Up for Roe Tour,” saying It is our duty to win!” “This is the most important part,” she continued. “We have nothing to lose but our chains.” See Marx’s 1848 Manifesto: “Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains.” Birds of a feather.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Leftist activist Brittany Packnett appeared on a pro-abortion panel with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) Wednesday to oppose the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanuagh to the Supreme Court.
After Gillibrand left, Packnett urged attendees to their feet to take an oath directly derived from Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto. “It is our duty to fight for our freedom!” Packnett asked the crowd at the at the Washington, DC, leg of the “Rise Up for Roe Tour,” to repeat after her, claiming this oath was one she had led “every night in Ferguson.”

“It is our duty to win!” she continued. “We must love and support one another!”

She then stopped the chant to emphasize the last line of the pledge. “This is the most important part,” she said. “We have nothing to lose but our chains.” The phrase derives from Marx’s 1848 Manifesto, which famously concludes, “Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution.

Wacky CA Gun Regulation Upheld by the 9th Circuit

California’s Unsafe Handgun Act was just upheld by the 9th Circuit Court, which comes as no surprise, considering the ludicrous nature of this barely covert gun ban attempt. In a nutshell, the Unsafe Handgun Act requires that new guns MUST 1) have an indicator showing whether or not a round is loaded in the chamber, 2) have a magazine detachment mechanism preventing the gun from firing without a magazine, and 3) have a microscopic stamping mechanism to imprint the handgun’s make, model, and serial number onto each fired shell casing.” Per the majority opinion, “…no handguns were available in the United States that met the microstamping requirements.” Of course not. Such mandates, by design, would cost so much that manufacturers across the nation would be instantly out of business, but isn’t that the left’s goal after all?

Here’s more from Hot Air…

In recent months there were some flickering signs of hope for the Ninth Circuit. Shocking everyone, panels for the Ninth issued rulings in two cases which threatened to recognize Supreme Court precedent in Second Amendment cases.

The first was when they knocked back California’s ban on large-capacity magazines. Another panel followed that up by supporting the right to open carry in Hawaii. But I suppose they didn’t want you feeling too comfortable because this week they returned to more familiar territory.

As David French noted earlier this week at National Review, the Ninth has jumped back into the crazy gun-banning business by upholding restrictions on the sale of various types of firearms which are nothing short of a slowly growing prohibition on many of the most common weapons. And the bans are cleverly written so they don’t appear to be actual bans at first glance.

Can GOP Win Oregon Governorship?

Oregon GOP gubernatorial candidate and state representative Dr. Knute Buehler is making waves lambasting Democratic contenders Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney and House Speaker Tina Kotek for their roles in ignoring sexual harassment complaints against lawmakers. “For too long, casual attitudes and unprofessional behavior has been accepted and tolerated in the Capitol,” Buehler blasted. “This troubling culture knows no party affiliation and exists whether you’re an elected official, lobbyist or student intern.” The grand irony here is that the left-inspired “me-too” movement, which has destroyed the reputations and careers of dozens of celebrities and politicians in the last year, threatens to devour its own in several blue states.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney and House Speaker Tina Kotek aren’t going anywhere, at least of their own volition. Both Democrats have rejected GOP gubernatorial candidate Dr. Knute Buehler’s demand they resign because of allegations the legislative leaders have been ignoring sexual harassment complaints involving lawmakers.

“For too long, casual attitudes and unprofessional behavior has been accepted and tolerated in the Capitol,” Buehler, who is an Oregon state representative, said in a statement. “This troubling culture knows no party affiliation and exists whether you’re an elected official, lobbyist or student intern.”

A February report showed a long pattern of sexual misconduct in the Oregon Legislature that ramped up in intensity during the 2017 legislative session. Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian accused Courtney and Kotek of ignoring reports of sexual harassment.

Media Throwing in the Towel on Kavanaugh Resistance

Although confirmation hearings for SCOTUS nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh won’t start until September 4, major MSM entities, such as the New York Times and The Washington Post, are reporting that it’s a lost cause for the left. According to the left media, shortcomings in resisting Trump’s nominee include a lack of grassroots coordination, lack of a clear target, and any blemish on Kavanaugh’s record to try and sink an increasingly likely successful confirmation. The “resist” efforts also appear foiled by the possibility of opposition from moderate GOP Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. In short, Justice Kavanaugh was a done deal even before his nomination was announced.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

The New York Times and The Washington Post are both reporting that progressive organizers can’t land a clean hit against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Their reports also suggest that Senate Democrats and their grassroots supporters aren’t coordinating effectively.
Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings are still three weeks away, and the Senate has only just begun reviewing records relating to his executive branch service.
Though his confirmation hearings are fully three weeks away and the Senate Judiciary Committee has only just begun reviewing records relating to his service in the executive branch, prominent voices in the media have already predicted that efforts to stop Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court have failed.

The New York Times and The Washington Post both featured pieces this weekend chronicling the air of inevitability around Kavanaugh, made worse by pervasive lethargy and inertia in Democratic ranks.

Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings Start Sept. 4

Confirmation hearings for SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh are scheduled to begin September 4. The hearings are expected to last three to four days according to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA). A judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 2006, Kavanaugh was nominated July 9 by President Donald Trump in the wake of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement announcement. Now that the official date is set, expect the radical left to be foaming at the mouth with a concerted effort to paint Kavanaugh as a right-wing boogeyman. In common judicial parlance, that means he believes in the Constitution.

Here’s more from The Daily Signal…

The confirmation hearings for federal appeals court Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to become the next Supreme Court justice will begin on Sept. 4 and last three to four days, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, announced Friday.

Grassley’s announcement comes as Senate Democrats sought to further stall the hearings, demanding more documents on Kavanaugh’s service in President George W. Bush’s White House and as a lawyer on independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s investigation of President Bill Clinton in the late 1990s.

“As I said after his nomination, Judge Kavanaugh is one of the most respected jurists in the country and one of the most qualified nominees ever to be considered by the Senate for a seat on our highest court,” said Grassley in a statement.

Pennsylvania Becomes Abortion Battleground

Pennsylvania’s gubernatorial candidates Republican Scott Wagner and Democratic incumbent Gov. Tom Wolf are continuing a longtime fight over a bill vetoed by the governor that would have limited legal abortions from 24 weeks to 20 weeks. Wagner has a score of 100 percent from the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, whereas Wolf is regarded as a true wolf in “women’s health” excuse-making for expanding abortion. Wagner, on the other hand, has already voted in favor of the 20-week bill and supports a ‘heartbeat bill’ while also opposing abortions for Down Syndrome diagnosis. Pennsylvania’s gubernatorial fight could end up becoming a proxy for the fight over Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf “must be competing for the title of the most pro-abortion governor in the U.S.,” Maria Gallagher, the legislative and political action committee director for the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, speculated in a recent op-ed for LifeNews.

“While he talks about women having control over their own ‘health care,’” Gallagher wrote, “Wolf remains one of the Keystone State’s leading apologists for Big Abortion.”

Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner, on the other hand, goes into the fall general election with the endorsement of the PPLF after scoring 100 percent on the political action committee’s voting scorecard while he was a member of the state’s legislature.

“The contrast between the candidates for governor is vast and crystal-clear,” Gallagher opined.“The lives of thousands of pre-born children—and the well-being of their mothers—are at stake in this pivotal election year.”

Fountain of Youth or Voter Fraud in Ohio’s 12th

Just 1,700 votes–less than one percent of the vote–in Ohio’s contested 12th district stand between special election victory or defeat for Republican Troy Balderson. Alarmingly, this may be the result of a determined effort by leftist to further destroy the integrity of the voting process by fighting voter ID laws and blocking the removal of defunct voter registrations. Due to their efforts, experts claim that 170 registered voters in the 12th district alone are more than 116 years old (The oldest living person in the world right now is 115-year-old Kane Tanaka of Japan). Either central Ohio has some really good water or something’s a bit fishy with the voter rolls. Whether any of these superhuman voters cast votes in this hotly contested special election remains to be seen.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Republican Troy Balderson clings to a narrow margin in last night’s special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional district, underscoring the impact voter fraud can have in key elections around the country.

The separation of 1700 votes, or less than one percent, highlights the recent attempt by Democratic activists to fight efforts to prevent voter fraud from occurring.

For the past four years, George Soros has spent millions of dollars trying to weaken Ohio’s election security by funding efforts to both block its implementation of Voter ID and prevent the state from removing inaccurate registrations.

Soros pledged $5 million to fund Clinton campaign attorney Marc Elias’s efforts to fight voter ID laws in Ohio and two other states ahead of the 2016 election. Elias would file that suit in Ohio on behalf of several groups, including the Ohio Organizing Collaborative, that would have an employee sentenced to prison for voter fraud.

FDA Using Aborted Baby Parts to ‘Humanize’ Mice?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has signed a new contract to acquire “fresh” human fetal tissue for transplant “to create chimeric animals that have a human immune system.” The goal is to give these engineered mice a functioning “human immune system” for use in research. “Fetal tissue used in research is obtained from elective abortions,” according to the Congressional Research Service. A 2016 Harvard University report says that this “human fetal material” cannot come from miscarriages. So now the federal government isn’t just giving federal funding to Planned Parenthood, it’s also buying aborted fetal tissue with your tax dollars.

Here’s more from CNS News…

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration signed a new contract on July 25 to acquire “fresh” human fetal tissue to transplant into “humanized mice” so that these mice will have a functioning “human immune system,” according to information published by the FDA and the General Services Administration.

“The objective is to acquire Tissue for Humanized Mice,” said a June 13 FDA “presolicitation notice” for the contract.

The contractor, the notice said, would “provide the human fetal tissue needed to continue the ongoing research being led by FDA.

“Fresh human tissues are required,” said the notice, “for implantation into severely immune-compromised mice to create chimeric animals that have a human immune system.”

Black Lives Matter Crash Police Wedding

There is apparently no “safe space” from Black Lives Matter riot-mongers who have now crashed the wedding of a police officer linked to the Stephon Clark shooting. What’s more insidious is that the Sacramento Police Department has not released the names of the officers involved, and media have blurred their faces, which raises the question of where the mob is getting its information. The suggestion is that SPD has a pro-BLM leak among its ranks, which threatens to escalate the culture war at the hands of BLM and Antifa.

Here’s more from CBS Sacramento… 

One of the two officers who shot and killed Stephon Clark was confronted by Black Lives Matter protesters on his wedding day.

Sacramento police have not released the names of the two officers who opened fire on Clark on March 18 due to safety concerns. CBS13 has blurred the faces of the newly released video to protect their identities.

The small group of protesters had gotten word about the wedding and made sure they were there just hours before the officer apparently said I do.

Now the confrontation is shedding light on what these officers are up against both in and out of uniform and begs the question, is this going too far?

“I think they need to be approached in spaces where they’re a little more vulnerable,” said Sacramento BLM founder Tanya Faison.
