Yesterday at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing, the Planned Parenthood mask of ‘women’s healthcare’ fell.

Hearing Key Points & Other Relevant Information

Despite NY Democrat Rep. Carolyn Maloney’s attempt to rescue Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards during the proceedings, it was made clear that the group does not do mammograms. Richards herself stated that to “the best of her knowledge” that none of the Planned Parenthood facilities even had a mammogram machine. (Free Beacon)

When questioned on making statements that Planned Parenthood did indeed do mammograms, Ceclie Richards stated, “we’ve never stated that we did”. Well, yes, they did say that they did mammograms. In fact, Richards said it herself in a 2011 interview. (Weekly Standard)

According to the Planned Parenthood annual report, 327,653 abortions were done in 2013 alone. (Free Beacon)

Of those 327,653 abortions, 36% were black babies according to the CDC. That’s apparently 1,000 times more than blacks killed by law enforcement.  (SooperMexican)

Richards was asked about the Center For Medical Progress (CMP) videos exposing monetary gain through the illegal trafficking of human organs labeled by Planned Parenthood as ’tissue donations’.  Richards said the videos were “deceptively edited” and “heavily doctored.” Her statements seem to imply she’s seen some or all of the videos.
However, just before Richards’ testimony, evidence was provided by a digital security and forensics firm called Coalfire that the full length CMP videos were “authentic and have not been manipulated”. (Daily Signal)

Abortions make up 86% of revenue for Planned Parenthood. Only 3% of their revenue comes from other services. (Twitchy)

There was the revelation of “exorbitant travel expenses,” incurred by Planned Parenthood. Included in the “exorbitant” list was $622,706 for “blowout parties” with celebrity guests. Also included was $34.8 million for its NYC corporate office space and the sale of a 72k square foot condo “to Brookfield Property Partners for $69.6 million.”. (The Hill)

“Richards also said, under oath, that no baby had ever been born alive and then aborted at a Planned Parenthood facility, a claim that was directly contradicted by recent witness testimony in front of the same committee.” (The Hill – there’s a lot more at this link worth your time.)

The question is raised yet again, why does Planned Parenthood need taxpayer dollars if “Planned Parenthood gets about $700B in nongovernmental funds…”? (Hot Air)

Richards is paid over $500,000 a year. She got a big raise of $240,000 in 2013. Rep. Chaffetz’s documentation showed Richards making $590,000. Richards argued she only makes $520,000. Poor baby.  Apparently, Richards also received $31,000 from  allocated time to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.”  (The Blaze)

Planned Parenthood’s Blood Money Goes To Democrat Defenses

Legal Insurrection noted from the hearing testimony that Planned Parenthood raised $127 million above its expenditures last year.

The question then becomes, what does Planned Parenthood do with their overage?

The answer is, they give it to Democrats or spend it attacking Democrat opponents.

Legal Insurrection also notes:

Outside of abortions, Planned Parenthood’s primary function is filtering money to and from Democratic organizations, giving in excess of $574,000 to candidates seeking federal office alone.

The Planned Parenthood Action fund has spent over $74,000 in 2015 – on attacking Clinton opponents. Dark Money, anyone?

Planned Parenthood’s Action fund ranks 22 in the list of top political non-profit spending. The Action Fund’s total spending reported to the IRS is $42,192,016. Of that, $8,250,439 was political spending. Only $6,634,390 was reported to the FEC.

A valid question to be posed to Democrats now is, are our children “just a matter of line items” in their campaign finance reports?

The ability to reason and think for one’s self in this country has been lost.

Apparently, Kiss Cams are now considered inappropriate at Syracuse University:

The kiss cam did not operate during Saturday’s game between the Orange and Central Michigan University following a letter to the editor published Friday on Syracuse.com questioning its appropriateness at a time when universities are focused on discouraging sexual assaults. During game delays couples kissing for the camera are displayed on the Jumbotron to entertain the crowd.

“We are taking the time to assess the concerns expressed in the letter to the editor. We discussed this with POMCO, the sponsor, and they supported that approach,” Sue Edson, executive senior associate athletics director for communications, said in an email. – Syracuse.com

As Syracuse is my Alma Mater, I am beyond mortified. I’m flabbergasted at the amount of sheer, pure STUPID going on here.  I feel dumber for having read the whole article all the way through. We’re one step closer to Demolition Man becoming reality.

But wait, it gets worse. The dumping of the Kiss Cam occurred because of one letter from a man named Steve Port, who compares the Kiss Cam to rape.

The instances I witnessed at the game encourage and condone sexual assault and a sense of male entitlement, at best. And they are an actual instance of assault, at worst,” Port wrote in his letter.

“No one has the right to forcefully touch someone be it a hug, a kiss or a violent rape. I adamantly insist that Syracuse University student government, the chancellor, the athletic director, etc. review what happened last weekend and seriously consider the ramifications of what they are encouraging,” he said. – Syracuse.com

Well, there you have it. Kiss Cams have been causing sexual assaults for decades across the country. Someone get that Jumbotron indicted already, will ya?

A couple of comments were posted in the article, this is one of them and it was nausea inducing:

syrfan47: “The question to me is not whether this meets the criteria for assault “legally”. The question is; given the context of today’s campus behaviors; why are we encouraging male entitlement in such a public forum. The reluctance of the women was clear; and I was uncomfortable with the Dome’s management condoning this outdated practice. For the record; I’m a guy; big SU fan, was at the game, and I do have daughters.”

It would seem that syrfan47’s own “male entitlement” is not in question. He sounds like a parrot, echoing the phrasing of Mr. Port.  The rest of the commenters nodding their little lemming heads in agreement are no better.

Ban all Things - Easily offendedMany thought the Kiss Cam was a dumb idea, but throughout the comments, most agreed yanking the cam was equally dumb.

It’s clear what has to happen. We need to act! Protect the easily offended – ban all things!

The only relief from this story is the vast majority of comments called this turn of events what it is — politically correct idiocy.

Here’s a sample:

“The kiss cam promotes sexual assault in the same way watching grown men tackle each other to the ground over possession of a ball promotes violence. Sorry, but this guy’s letter is taking things a bit too far.”

“My question is, when are they going to stop selling beer? I think selling beer at the games is promoting alcoholism and the college is sending out a message that you should be drinking at sporting events.”

“I’m offended by all of those who are offended so off with your heads. Seriously this is all totally out of hand. Don’t breath you just might offend the person next to you”

And just last week, the President of the United States scolded Universities for ‘coddling’ their students.  Perhaps the President’s message should have been directed at the general public.

Just last week, I was delving into the politically correct, First Amendment violating battlefields we call college campuses.

This week, we have President Obama condemning the ‘coddling’ of our college kids. Washington Free Beacon captured the meat of Obama’s comments:

“Sometimes there are folks on college campuses who are liberal, and maybe even agree with me on a bunch of issues, who sometimes aren’t listening to the other side, and that’s a problem too,” Obama said. “I’ve heard some college campuses where they don’t want to have a guest speaker who is too conservative or they don’t want to read a book if it has language that is offensive to African Americans or somehow sends a demeaning signal towards women.

“And you know, I’ve got to tell you, I don’t agree with that either. I don’t agree that you, when you become students at colleges, have to be coddled and protected from different points of view. You know, I think you should be able to—anybody who comes to speak to you and you disagree with, you should have an argument with them. But you shouldn’t silence them by saying, ‘You can’t come because I’m too sensitive to hear what you have to say.’ That’s not the way we learn either.”

So, the man whose ‘signature law’, Obamacare, defines children/dependents as people up to 25 years of age, says the same children shouldn’t be protected from different points of view.

‘You shouldn’t silence them’ but you ‘should have an argument with them’.

Like this?

NOTHINGPERSONAL

 

 

 

 

 

Right.  Got it.

Just like he, master of the bully pulpit, listens to other points of view? No, he ignores them, marginalizes them and and the media assists in punishing them.

New Tone.
Quit listening to Rush Limbaugh.
FOX news.
Do everything I can without Congress.
I won.
Tone Deaf.
Free Stuff.
Denali.
Crazies.

Those examples are just the ones off the top of my head. There are so many more. A good bet for another one is anytime he’s gone golfing, because that signals he’s recently just ignored someone or some issue, insulted someone or some group.

For more, see Townhall, who just this past Spring did a nice round-up of President Politically Correct’s greatest hits.

Over seven years, the one thing I would never call this President is open-minded to different points of view. He has one view, his.

I would call him a Political Correctness warrior, however, only when it suits his purposes and that’s sadly rather often.

I mean, come on… the man won’t even say the words Islamic Terrorism for crying out loud.

For the love of God, doesn’t anyone remember Attack Watch? Encouraging citizens to spy on their neighbors and report back ‘lies’ about Obama and his administration? Get the facts, fight the smears… anyone?

So here we are coming full circle, in a way because this is not about free speech or having meaningful debates. It is about unleashing social justice warriors college kids into the 2016 debate, because you should argue with your neighbor and get in their face.

College campuses, which should be environments that foster difference of opinion, have become increasingly restrictive when it comes to free speech.  It’s gotten so bad that apparently, at some colleges, the First Amendment is almost non-existent or at least ignored.

At the end of August, The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) produced a video discussing this trend and noted that college campuses (both public and private) had been adopting ‘speech codes’.

nospeechzoneCampuses are now instituting “free speech zones”, which are small and often require students to obtain permits just to use them.

Think about that for a second.  Your child can’t speak their mind at college unless they get permission. The approved narratives must be maintained. Dissent is not permissible.

FIRE found that 54% of public colleges and 59% of private ones were imposing politically correct speech codes on students. FIRE also notes that ‘thanks to Department of Education guidelines’, 100% of colleges may adopt speech codes in the coming years.

FIRE notes this issue has become so bad that they are having to take schools to court to defending the basic First Amendment rights of students.

That’s beyond horrifying.

Let’s look at two cases from my own state, North Carolina.

There’s the case of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) Wrestling coach, C. D. Mock, who was fired after standing up for his son who was falsely accused of rape on a different college campus. Mock spoke out for his son and blogged about what he had learned about the questionable ‘campus rape culture’.

Mock cites that pressure from UNC officials and liberal activists in the area were brought to bear. Excerpt from Mock’s article at the Pope Center:

It is no secret that the administration at UNC greatly opposed my position on their sexual assault policies. Chancellor Carol Folt has been a leader in a national campaign to give accusers unfair advantages in campus proceedings dealing with sexual assault—my stance that the increasing reliance on campus committees and administrators applying affirmative consent standards instead of following due legal process must have rankled her and other key UNC people. 

The local activist community also pushed to have me removed. Liberal pollster and blogger Tom Jensen, by his own admission, wrote to my administration demanding my firing and led a letter writing campaign to do just that. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that I was fired because my views differed from those at the leadership of UNC as well as some highly political people who had influence on UNC leaders and had absolutely nothing to do with my performance as wrestling coach.

Read the whole piece.

Another recent case revolves around a play at Greensboro college. The play was about “sexual harassment and rape” and college campuses.  The play is called “It Stops Here”.

Apparently comments were yelled at the actors by the audience.

Local media outlet, MyFox8, quotes the stage manager of the play about the comments yelled out:

“Many of the boys started calling out ‘She wanted it, it’s not rape,’ and making masturbation noises,” said Claire Sellers, stage manager for the play.

Those comments yelled out, according to the stage manager, are clearly meant to disrupt the play and could arguably be a form of push back on the ‘campus rape culture’ hyperbole that is being turned into actual policies.

This is heckling. Rather ugly heckling, but still heckling.  You ignore them and move on right?

Wrong. This story gets worse.

“On Thursday, the president of the college sent a letter to students saying that a Title IX investigation had been launched and that the college is pursuing a formal complaint of sexual misconduct.”

Yes, heckling a play is now a subject of a Title IX investigation.  Greensboro college is going after the hecklers for ‘sexual misconduct’.

Shut up, they explained…

In the August dump of Hillary Clinton’s emails, a number of interesting items came to light as media outlets began sifting through them.

There was a lot more in there than expected, from obsessing over Sarah Palin to ‘Vast Right Wing Conspiracies’ and recruiting State Department employees to steer funds towards a Clinton Foundation partner.

There was also quite a bit of information showing the influencing of policy decisions through a network of ‘yes men‘ and quite a lot of traffic involving Sidney Blumenthal.

Included in that mix was mention in of the New America Foundation.

I’ve written about New America Foundation and Hillary Clinton before, right here at Da Tech Guy. That original article was in relation to Clinton’s comments on Common Core and her ties to New America Foundation, who in 2014, put out a policy briefing Insisting that Colleges Align with the Common Core”. 

Daily Beast:

Blumenthal, long a loyal footman, sent Clinton a missive on Feb. 13, 2010, asking about Steve Clemons of the New America Foundation. Blumenthal dives right in and informs Clinton of many important facts about Clemons—including an all-important bit about his sexuality.

“Clemons runs the foreign policy program at New America Foundation, a character around town, very busy, gossipy, gay, friend of Laurie Rubiner (from her NAF days), former moderate Republican, funded in part by Bernard Schwartz, foreign policy realist, and who began his career as a walker of Hollywood wives,” Blumenthal writes.

The policy influencing isn’t all ‘yes men‘. There’s a ‘yes woman’ too.

A search of the Clinton email dump using “New America Foundation” yielded four emails, one of which is reference by the previously mentioned excerpt from the Daily Beast that included Steve Clemons. The names Peter Beinart and Anne-Marie Slaughter also appeared in relation to New America Foundation.

New America Foundation  claims to be a ‘non-partisan’ non-profit concerned with various government policy issues. The New America Foundation is headed up by Anne-Marie Slaughter, who is also former Clinton State Department staffer.

In May, 2014, Clinton was the keynote speaker for New America Foundation’s 2014 Conference “Big Ideas for a New America”. Video of her remarks can be seen at C-SPAN. Clinton spends the opening moments thanking her “friend and former colleague”, Anne-Marie Slaughter:

And I want to thank my friend and former colleague Anne-Marie Slaughter. I am deeply grateful for all of her contributions, her intellectual firepower… called the Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review, which provided a blueprint for 21st century statecraft. She’s now bringing that same imaginative, disciplined leadership to the New America Foundation, and a focus on big ideas on the intersection of policy…

Beinart and Clemons are both in the journalist world.  Both are also editors in some fashion at The Atlantic and their articles appeared in the Clinton email dump.

Now, both Beinart and Clemons are affiliated with a very well-funded “non-profit” dedicated to steering national policies that is run by a former Clinton State Department employee and endorsed by her former boss, Hillary Clinton herself.  Cozy.

For many parents engaged in the fight against Common Core, discovering the level of control the federal government has over your child’s education has likely been an ulcer inducing adventure and a disturbing eye-opener.

The deeper I got into the weeds investigating the overlapping tentacles of Common Core, the more I realized that just how much control the federal government asserts over the states in terms of education.

For brevity, let’s call this control what Michelle Malkin calls it: ‘Fed Ed’.

A fine example of ‘Fed Ed’, which I doubt most people out there know about, is a non-profit called WestEd which is used to farm out wish list projects that certain government agencies are prohibited from engaging in. WestEd has reaps millions in government contracts annually.

Another example of ‘Fed Ed’ would be the tax dollars that flow to Teach for America (TFA) and subsequently trickle down to TFA employees and alumni who are “Black Lives Matter” professional agitators.

‘Fed Ed’ includes ‘Full-Service’ Community Schools, which according to the program description provides “comprehensive academic, social, and health services for students, students’ family members, and community members”.  This program was just extended for another five years. Remember, Obama believes that the government should have some kids in government run schools “24/7“.

Now consider the pressure (legal and otherwise) being brought to bear on state school discipline procedures by the Obama administration which fits right in with the Liberal’s  ‘You will be made to care‘ theme.  Specifically, Southern states.

The Obama administration’s DOJ has been poking around school districts looking for racist policies with regards to discipline procedures,  specifically looking at the discipline and expulsion rates of black students. In conjunction with that poking around is the use of the phrase ‘school to prison pipeline‘ by multiple social justice organizations.

The focus of this ‘school to prison pipeline’ has been mostly on Southern states and a recent report being written about right now is only about Southern states.  This report is penned by Edward J. Smith and Shaun R. Harper of  the “Center for the Study of Race and Equity” located  at the Penn Grad school of Education. They use the phrase, ‘school to prison pipeline’ throughout their report.

It’s worth noting that the report doesn’t mention who paid for this report, what data sets were  or were not used, that Southern states have a higher black population in general, a description or details of the circumstances of the expulsions/suspensions,  nor does it cite any statistics on other ethnicities for comparison or as a control.

The report does mention that a large chunk of data (269 school districts) had missing or incomplete data. Gee, that might skew conclusions even more?

What is mentioned in the Smith/Harper report is the blaming of Zero Tolerance policies and the involvement of the US Dept. of Education, the NAACP and Teach for America.

Don’t miss the suggestions for using this report on page 3 and the report’s conclusion statement on page 89.  Here’s a snippet from ‘Using this report’:

“Our aim is to equip anyone concerned about the school-to-prison pipeline and the educational mistreatment of Black youth with numbers they can use to demand justice from school boards, educational leaders, and elected officials.”

With ‘use statements’ like that, it’s pretty clear this report was less about science and more about promoting a ‘You will be made to care’ narrative.

As I tried to write this article, I was alternating between my computer screen and watching my two children playing with their LEGO’s.  I had to watch them after what I just saw. I had to cleanse my mind of lives that will never be, ended in the most horrific ways imaginable.

I sat there just staring at a my computer screen for a long time trying to wrap my head around the latest Planned Parenthood video released by Center for Medical Progress.

I sat and stared, unable to believe what I had just seen and heard.  I didn’t just see that, I couldn’t have. STOP.

I sat and stared some more when I read the Daily Signal article that said over half of Americans still had not heard about these videos.

I’m still sitting here, trying to come up with something to say and my mind is screaming a million things at once. Horror. Sadness. Anger. Too many to list.

I cannot fathom how a human being can find it ‘”something kind of cool” to manipulate the heart of an aborted child into beating. It’s beyond monstrous, it’s not human.

I’m struggling to understand how any society can allow the most defenseless of that society to be harvested like crops in a field and then ripped apart for profit. I understand even less those who claim this activity is for ‘the greater good’ or ‘it’s just tissue’ and is being done ‘in the name of research’.

The comparison to the Nazi’s is an oft over-used and hyperbolic one, however, not so in this case. This is the same mentality just with modern, sound bite styled rationalizations.

There are times when after the procedure is done that the heart actually is still beating.”
– Dr. Ben Van Handel, Executive Director of Novogenix Laboratories, LLC

Is America’s heart still there?

I have to believe it is. I have to believe there are more people out there like me — people bewildered and outraged that atrocities like this are happening in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The first Republican debate was more entertaining than it had a right to be.

While a historic number of people watched it, they were likely doing so to see what came out of Trump’s mouth next. Those folks were probably not disappointed.

I was watching for how the candidates reacted to a few key issues. One of them is education — specifically Common Core.  I was not disappointed.

The question on Common Core was fired right at Jeb Bush, who dodged it without the words “Common Core” ever crossing his lips. It was artful, but to those of us engaged in the fight against the Core, it was predictable and highly disingenuous.

First, it should be noted that Arne Duncan has attacked parents and insulted millions with his ‘white suburban mom‘ rhetoric. Jeb Bush and John Kasich prefer to utilize Unicorns to smear parents with.

Second, Jeb Bush’s promotion of Common Core runs in contradiction to his claim he is a proponent of school choice. Common Core is the opposite of choice, sir.

The question on Common Core was then redirected to Sen. Marco Rubio. I was a bit surprised that they didn’t toss it to Kasich.  After all, Kasich is in this race to take Common Core heat off Jeb and hand him Ohio.

What Rubio said in his response effectively stapled Bush’s position on Common Core to Bush’s own forehead:

Well, first off, I too believe in curriculum reform. It is critically important in the 21st Century. We do need curriculum reform. And it should happen at the state and local level. That is where educational policy belongs, because if a parent is unhappy with what their child is being taught in school, they can go to that local school board or their state legislature, or their governor and get it changed.

Here’s the problem with Common Core. The Department of Education, like every federal agency, will never be satisfied. They will not stop with it being a suggestion. They will turn it into a mandate.

In fact, what they will begin to say to local communities is, you will not get federal money unless do you things the way we want you to do it. And they will use Common Core or any other requirements that exists nationally to force it down the throats of our people in our states.

This response isn’t just applicable to Common Core or the Department of Education. There are examples of this mandate machine we call the Federal government in every sector of our lives now.

The lengths to which the federal government has gone to ensure control over the states to date is Orwellian. And this control seeking behavior is increasing.

Rubio didn’t stop with Jeb Bush on education either, he took a clean shot at Hillary Clinton and “free” college this week. From a press release from his campaign site:

“Hillary Clinton’s higher education plan is Obamacare for college. Clinton’s plan doubles down on the outdated system that’s created skyrocketing tuitions and degrees that don’t lead to jobs. Rather than modernize our system by embracing new innovations, Clinton will raise taxes and pour more money into a broken system. 

Good to see Rubio taking aim at Clinton on this topic. This is yet another example of where another federal mandate could be created funded by our own tax dollars.

Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton now have another thing in Common beyond donors — Rubio has called them both out on education. Clinton, like Bush, also is a supporter of Common Core.

In political races, fence riding by candidates is a given.  Hillary Clinton has been the mother of all fence riders so far, but her two videos that dropped on the same day earlier this week go beyond fence riding.

On her campaign site, Clinton launched “Dorothy“.  It’s an old timey flash back to her mom and her rough beginnings. The overarching theme Clinton uses here is that she’s in the presidential race for “the Dorothys”; she’s in it for the moms.

I watched the whole thing.  If campaign videos were ranked by Rotten Tomatoes, it wouldn’t have gotten past 10%.

The Dorothy video was stiff, insincere and tried way too hard to humanize Hillary to the extent it had the opposite effect. It made me ask, if her mom was this great person, what the Hell happened to Hillary?

Now, hopping over to YouTube, the Hillary Clinton drops a 2 minute long defense of Planned Parenthood.

Clinton tries to sell Planned Parenthood as a healthcare provider despite the fact they have just been exposed as operating a horrifying and illegal infant body part chop shop —  for profit.

What’s more, she tries to blame Republicans for being horrified and wanting public funding  stopped, stating “If this feels like a full on assault on women’s health, that’s because it is.”

SERIOUSLY?

Opposing public dollars to fund poking around in what looks like a slurry of infant body parts to find viable parts to sell is an assault on women’s health?

This video was purely political and in that two minutes she tags Scott Walker, Jeb Bush and Rick Perry for the apparent crime of valuing life.

Clinton goes from finding the CMP videos ‘disturbing‘ to defending Planned Parenthood within a 4 day window.

On Tuesday, a 5th video dropped, but I guess we should have expected this from a Margaret Sanger Award winner.

On Clinton’s campaign site for donations, Clinton is all about ‘moms’. On her YouTube channel, it’s all about defending an organization makes sure that hundreds of thousands of women each year do not become moms.

Is the media worried about this appalling mixed message? No, just about Clinton’s “performance” in the videos.

I have the distinct feeling most of us are witnessing a political version of whack-a-mole. However, in this case, it’s now wack0-birds in place of the moles.

Recently, Donald Trump gave out Lindsey Graham’s cell phone number at a public event. Lindsey Graham took a whack back at Trump for ‘selling fear and prejudice‘.

John McCain said Donald Trump ‘fired up the crazies’ earlier this month. Donald Trump turned around and whacked at John McCain’s war record.

John McCain whacked back at Donald Trump but made his response about veterans overall; Trump should apologize to all veterans.

Outrage over Trump insulting McCain’s war record flowed back and forth on Twitter in a manner that one can only characterize has simultaneously nauseating and hilarious.

Twitter and Facebook posts surged. Surely this series of sparring will dump Trump out of the polls, right? Nope.

Look, I’m not a Trump fan, I don’t want a celebrity president. I don’t believe he is a conservative by any stretch of the imagination.  I personally believe Trump is in this race to be a stalking horse, but for which candidate and which side I don’t really know yet.

But Trump’s blunt messages are resonating with a lot of people.

The people are tired of Washington liars, of divisive narratives, a lawless administration and of the complicit media.  In particular, conservative voters are tired of the establishment GOP ramming crappy, squishy candidates down our throats.

The establishment clearly wants Jeb Bush. It might happen with Kasich in the race. Anyone who hasn’t figured it out yet, Kasich is very likely Jeb’s stalking horse for this election cycle.

Should a Jeb Bush candidacy happen, I know a lot of Common Core moms who will be staying home on election day. 

One parting whack:
