Roe at 40
New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/22/2013 5:23:08 AM

There’s no naïveté quite like that of the sophisticate. Forty years ago this day, the Supreme Court upended the laws of all 50 states in Roe v. Wade — and The New York Times pronounced the issue settled. “The court’s verdict on abortions,” said the Times, “provides a sound foundation for final and reasonable resolution of a debate that has divided America too long. As with the division over Vietnam, the country will be healthier with that division ended.” Four decades on, we are hard-pressed to find any sign this division is ended. To the contrary, by substituting the preferences

The article does not put forth any suggestion as to a solution. It says both sides should consider the other sides´ point of view. I don´t think any compromise can be made. The baby cannot be half alive or half dead.

50,000,000 innocent, defenseless babies dead and counting. Blood money. My heart continues to break. Pharoah and Caeser Augustus and satan are so proud. :weeping:

Jeremiah 31:15 (NIV), also referenced in Matthew 2:18 - This is what the Lord says: "A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”

Interesting that the NY Times used the language of Hitler, when he talked about his plan to exterminate the Jews. A final solution to the issue of abortion. Nice, NYTimes. Nice.

When the issue of abortion gets mixed up with rape and contraception those who oppose abortion lose the battle.

One thing that has always puzzled me. If someone kills a pregnant woman, they are often charged with two deaths; the mother and the unborn child. How do the courts explain the difference between that and the murder of an unborn child by abortion, which, in their eyes, is legal?
I´m confused, and have been foe 40 years.

So what´s so hard to understand about the wholesale slaughter of nearly 55,000,000 innocent helpless souls since 1973?

It´s called mass murder, on a scale never before seen in human history, going on daily in the "Good Ole" US of A," at a "clinic" near you!

#5 What the court has basically said is that only the mother has the right to kill their unborn child. They just will not say so in language that is easily understood.

Yesterday I stumbled on a program about the argument in the SC on Roe V Wade.

The attorney for Roe, a lady by the name of Weddington, was totally prepared and argued the various points exceptionally, unlike the 2 defense attys, Flowers and I forget the other´s name.

The questions from the Justices were very telling and exposed the mindset they were approaching the subject with.

Need to research and find info on the program.

#5, the bottom line is this - if the mother wants it, it´s a human being. If she doesn´t want it, it´s not, and can therefore be dismembered and dumped in the trash.

"a large swath of American society believes a woman’s right to choose is sacrosanct."

This is simply untrue. A large swath of American society believes that abortion should be curbed in the 97% of the cases when abortion occurs: that is, in the cases that do not involve rape, incest, and the life of the mother.

A large swath of Americans believe that there should be "woman´s right to know" --- informed consent --- which includes seeing a sonogram of the developing child and seeing his heart rate and brain waves.

A large swath of Americans believe there should be parental consent, i.e. high-schoolers should not be able to abort their babies in secret without telling their parents, who remain morally and legally responsible for their daughters´ well-being and medical care.

A large swath of Americans believe that if babies are going to be killed in the case of rape and incest, the rapist/incestuous adult should be criminally prosecuted as part of the deal; unlike now, where abortion is used as a way to shield the sexual predator from detection.

Even the majority of "pro-choice" Americans believe it is wrong to kill the baby at some point (e.g. after the onset of heartbeat, or brain waves, or pain sensitivity) or for some reasons (e.g. for the purpose of eliminating girls).

If someone -- say, the clueless Republicans --- were to present the case to Americans in these terms, we could see a huge reduction in the bloody body-count.

Isn´t it time now? It´s been 40 years.

The Clintons´ ´conspiracy commerce´ memo
Politico, by Hadas Gold    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/19/2014 4:31:20 AM     Post Reply
The famous Clinton White House document known as "the conspiracy commerce memo" has finally surfaced. The memo, which details how right-wing conspiracy theories made their way into the mainstream press, was written in 1995 and first acknowledged by the White House in 1997. The idea of a “conspiracy” was also famously referred to by Hillary Clinton in 1998, when she cited a “vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he ran for president.” The memo, part of the latest trove of documents released by the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday, outlines “the communication stream of conspiracy

President Obama signed an executive order today extending eligibility for the third-highest Defense Department recognition to foreign armies. “Executive Order 12019 of November 3, 1977 (Establishing the Defense Meritorious Service Medal), is amended by inserting, ‘or to any member of the armed forces of a friendly foreign nation,’ after ‘any member of the Armed Forces of the United States,’” said the short order. Worn between the Purple Heart and Meritorious Service Medal, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal is awarded to military personnel “serving with or assigned to a number of joint activities including the Secretary of Defense, organizations of the Joint Chiefs

Poland and the United States will announce next week the deployment of U.S. ground forces to Poland as part of an expansion of NATO presence in Central and Eastern Europe in response to events in Ukraine. That was the word from Poland’s defense minister, Tomasz Siemoniak, who visited The Post Friday after meeting with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel at the Pentagon on Thursday. Siemoniak said the decision has been made on a political level and that military planners are working out details. There will also be intensified cooperation in air defense, special forces, cyberdefense and other areas. Poland will play a

AMSTERDAM -- Charlotte van den Berg was a 20-year-old college student working part-time in Amsterdam´s city archives when she and other interns came across a shocking find: letters from Jewish Holocaust survivors complaining that the city was forcing them to pay back taxes and late payment fines on property seized after they were deported to Nazi death camps. How, the survivors asked, could they be on the hook for taxes due while Hitler´s regime was trying to exterminate them? A typical response was: "The base fees and the fines for late payment must be satisfied, regardless of whether a third party,

MOKPO, South Korea -- A prosecutor says that the third mate steering a South Korean ferry at the time of a major accident was navigating those waters for the first time. Senior prosecutor Yang Jung-jin told reporters that the 25-year-old mate was steering the ship as it passed through an area with lots of islands clustered close together and fast currents. The ferry sank Wednesday. More than 270 people are still missing. Yang says that another mate usually took controls through the area. But because heavy fog caused a departure delay, the third mate was steering the ship through the waters. Yang says

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

The Debate Will Be Over When the
American People Say It’s Over

Shortly after the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, the CBO projected that 9 million people would buy Obamacare-compliant insurance through newly established government-run exchanges. Now, after an enrollment period that his administration expanded by about two months—to more than half a year—President Obama says that 8 million people have “signed up” for (but in many cases haven’t actually bought) insurance through those exchanges. The Obama administration’s stated goal was to have 39 percent of those who bought such insurance be between the ages of 18 and 34. Now Obama says the actual percentage is 28 percent. Only in Washington, D.C. could someone

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
