Girl Scouts Threaten Legal Action
Against Critical Pro-Life Groups

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Austin Ruse

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/18/2014 11:18:54 AM

The Girl Scouts of the USA has sent threatening letters to at least two small pro-life groups that have been critical of Girl Scout collaborations with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups. Since the beginning of the Girl Scout cookie boycott, exclusively announced at Breitbart News late last month, LifeNews has extensively reported on the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts. LifeNews editor Steve Ertelt announced Monday that he had received a letter threatening legal action. In it, Girl Scout executive Brian Crawford complained about “articles that outline alleged ties to Planned Parenthood” and that “GSUSA has

Comments:
Leftists are a malignant cancer in our society. They destroy everything they come in contact with. The Girl Scouts never, ever should have allowed Planned Parenthood to become part of them. You knew nothing good would come of it.

I love GS cookies. Too bad I won´t spend another dime on them until they break from Planned Parenthood and other pro-baby-killing groups.

I´d like to see some actual evidence of this connection to Planned Parenthood. The Girl Scouts deny it. Until then, I´m going to continue buying the cookies.

Good move on the part of the Girl Scouts.

Perfect opportunity to spread the news of the GSUSA / PP connection to people who aren´t aware of it.

Girl Scouts going into action. Oh my, can´t let anything happen to all that lovely $$$$ the cookies generate. I think we can surmise from the lawsuit that it is a genuine worry. Hey GSA, you guys called Wendy Davis (known as Abortion Barbie in Texas) an "incredible woman" worthy of Woman of the Year. Finally, this woke up many decent folks who realized what we support if we buy those cookies. Even my pro-choice Texas friends cannot go along with teaching little girls that evil is worthy of an award or accolade. I am glad they are being exposed more and more. Sue away, gals, it just shows what you really are.

Rather than buy cookies this year we wrote a check directly to our local GSA Troop. We know the adult leaders and they will make good use of the money. Besides, the locals get very little of the proceeds from cookie sales.

Planned Parenthood and it´s pro-kill attitude has been awakened by someone letting the cat out of the bag about the Girl Scouts. Planned Parenthood will win many legal cases and will threaten many while it is in vogue - but Planned Parenthood is no more than death warmed over - and a cooling trend is in the forecast.

I was once proud to be a Girl Scout. I went through the entire program from Brownies to Seniors. I was a "National Opportunity" girl in 1971 (similar to going to National Jamboree for Boy Scouts). I was a GS summer camp counselor during my college summers. My mother was a Girl Scout leader for 35 years.

The Girl Scouts have been taken over by the socialist communists and it no longer represents the organization started by Juliet Lowe. I will never buy another box of cookies, and I also tell the adult present why I do not.

They admit they partner with PP and other orginizations to teach girls sex ed. I don´t know when Girl Scouts started teaching sex ed, it wasn´t taught decades ago when I was a Scout but times change (and not in a good way).

Planned Parenthood is making inroads everywhere, not just with the Girl Scouts.

About 15 years ago, our school district invited parents to a meeting (to which they were encouraged to bring their middle-school child). It was to give sex education to our children (beyond the condom-on-banana classes they were already giving in Health).

I went, without my child, and was treated to an evening of radical liberal teachings, complete with literature for our children. At the END of the evening, the books were made available, along with the proposed instructors of the course--all from Planned Parenthood.

I walked out.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s health-care reform law. Secretary

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.

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'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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."

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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W.

They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
