 Revealing Evil, Take 3 
The Center for Medical Progress had a good strategy: Capture and release undercover film of Planned Parenthood's depravity, wait for the inevitable craven defense and denial, and then turn up the heat with subsequent video releases that show even more offensive material. The group's third video release (with more to follow in the "Human Capital" series) is very graphic. It depicts, as feared, the dissected parts of an aborted baby, so viewers beware. A technician working with an 11-week-old aborted baby talks (and laughs) about getting $200-$300 per baby by charging more per organ or part specimen. Dr. Savita Ginde, vice president and medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, agrees: “I think a per-item thing works a little better," she says, "just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” That's hardly just a way to "break even," as the Planned Parenthood doctor insisted in the first video. Never mind the abortion itself already costs a bundle. Clearly, money is the driving factor.
          The video primarily features an interview with Holly O'Donnell, a former “procurement technician” at a fetal tissue company. She recounts how she fainted on the first day at work when she was instructed to dissect a newly aborted baby. “I thought I was going to be just drawing blood," she said, "not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses.” She explained the profit motive: “The harder and more valuable the tissue, the more money you can get. If you can somehow procure a brain or a heart, you’re going to get more money. ... I guess that’s an incentive to try and get the hard stuff — because they get more money.” She concludes, "It's basically a huge trafficking of fetal tissues. ... It's a pretty sick company." And the despicable people at Planned Parenthood have the gall to insist the only evil here is the "heavily edited" videos. -The Patriot Post

 Boy Scout Board Decrees Homosexual Leaders Okay 
The National Executive Board of the Boy Scouts of America voted 45-12 to allow openly homosexual adults to be troop leaders. While Monday's decision leaves an exception for troops sponsored by religious organizations, homosexual activists are already saying they will challenge, erode and destroy the exception designed to respect religious conscience. Boy Scouts President (and former Defense Secretary) Robert Gates said, "For far too long this issue has divided and distracted us. Now it's time to unite behind our shared belief in the extraordinary power of Scouting to be a force for good." Since Gates took the helm of the BSA in May 2014, he's personally supported rolling back the ban. In May, he called for changing the policy. Despite Gates' assurances of unity, this top-down decree to the groups meeting in church basements and communities nationwide threatens to rend the organization. The Mormon Church said it's consider splitting from BSA to create its own scouting organization. And Rev. Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention said this decision will probably "freeze" the relationship between Southern Baptists and the BSA. Gates brought his political agenda to the BSA, and, as a result, religious liberty is being threatened and the BSA is cheapened. Furthermore, the change is the net effect of having a bunch of wealthy corporate guys fighting for advertising dollars leading the board of a national grassroots organization. There's clearly a huge disconnect between the political agenda of the board and the culture of Boy Scout troops.  -The Patriot Post

 Dems' Economic Policies Will Hurt Those They Claim to Help 
Democrats are bickering over how high to raise the minimum wage, even though doing so would hurt constituencies the party claims to represent. Democrats all agree the minimum wage must be raised. The party's establishment politicians — dinky Harry Reid and Nancy Pulosi — propose a minimum wage hike to $12. Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is calling for a $15 minimum wage, even though the socialist only pays his interns $12 an hour. Is that all he can afford to pay them? A study published by the American Action Forum and the Manhattan Institute for Policy found both proposed minimum wage policies would decimate the jobs held by low-skilled workers who often vote Democrat. If the minimum wage rose to $12 an hour, the economy would lose 3.8 million jobs. If the minimum wage rose to $15 an hour, 6.6 million jobs would disappear. Besides putting the jobs of fast-food workers at risk, the Democrats' plan would hurt their supposed darling constituency: illegal immigrants. Of the 11.3 million illegals in this country, 8.1 million hold jobs. At the same time, there are 9.6 million unemployed Americans — a number that would very well rise if Democrats take a top down, emotional approach to the economy.  -The Patriot Post

  Hillynomics: Higher Tax Rates and More Solar Panels  
Anyone who doubts Hilly Clinton is a socialist need look no further than her economic plan for America. Put simply, her proposals will continue Barack nObama's path of economic ruin rather than turning the nation toward economic prosperity.
          Earlier this month, Hilly made a few economic pronouncements, including bashing Republicans for "trickle-down economics" (a.k.a. capitalism). She also blamed GOP presidents for creating messes for Democrats to clean up, yet she never once mentioned the mess she and her own party created.
          Hilly’s initial prescription to solve our nation’s economic woes is to raise the minimum wage, spend more tax dollars on infrastructure and put more women into the workforce. Surely her comments perked up the ears of progressives, but anyone who understands basic economics knows her proposals do nothing to create jobs in a struggling economy.
          Now she's proposed two more facets of her economic agenda, and let’s just say that they are equally terrible.   -The Patriot Post

 P5+1 Deal Has An Exit Clause (Iran Can Take The Money And Run)  
{Jeff Dunetz} ~ The P5+1 Agreement has an exit clause. As pointed out by Owen Alterman of the Institute for National Security Studies Tel Aviv, Israel, it's right there on page 19, paragraph 36 (the paragraph is at the bottom of this post... As previously discussed the deal is not forever as hanoi John Kerry promised, but most of the key provisions expire after ten years the rest after fifteen.  But according to  paragraph 36 any party, be it Iran, Prime Minister of Great Britain, or a future U.S. president can kill the Iran nuclear deal with 35 days' notice. On the other hand, once Iran has its $150 billion (okay hanoi Kerry says it's only $100 billion) and made some long term oil deals they can give the nuclear agreement the big heave ho and just take the money and run. That way the can go back to the way it was but have a little nest egg to get through the rough sanctions (if the snap back provision actually works). Of course the exit provision also allows a new president to ditch the lousy deal.

 Oversight Committee To nObama---Get Rid Of IRS Chief Or We Will  
{Jeff Dunetz} ~ Finally sick and tired of his obfuscation, Republicans on House Oversight Committee on Monday called on President nObama to oust Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen... for obstructing the committee’s investigation into the tax agency’s targeting of conservative groups. And if the president ignores the committees request, Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said the committee was actively considering contempt charges and impeachment proceedings against Mr. Koskinen in the event the president does not remove him from office. In a letter to President nObama, the Committee outlined the findings, thus far, of its investigation into the IRS targeting scandal. The letter explains and provides evidence of the violations on the part of the IRS and Commissioner Koskinen in properly complying with both a congressional subpoena and its own internal preservation order.        http://yidwithlid.blogspot.com/2015/07/oversight-committee-to-obama...

 Netanyahu Coalition in Trouble Over Evacuation of Jews  
{Ryan Jones} ~ Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s fragile coalition looked to be in trouble Tuesday morning hours after police forcibly removed residents from a newly constructed neighborhood in the Jewish townof Beit El north of Jerusalem... Israel’s Supreme Court recently ordered the houses in the new Dreinoff neighborhood of Beit El be demolished following a left-wing petition claiming the structures were built on “Palestinian” land. On Monday, so-called Jewish “settlers” barricaded themselves in the houses to prevent the order being carried out. In the early morning hours of Tuesday, hundreds of riot police showed up to evacuate the neighborhood. Some 50 demonstrators were arrested during the ensuing confrontation.   http://www.israeltoday.co.il/NewsItem/tabid/178/nid/27074/Default.aspx

 nObama Administration Defies Federal Judge (Again)  
{totalconservative.com} ~ If President nObama’s underlings don’t watch themselves, they are going to wind up in the slammer, charged with contempt of court... Federal Judge Andrew Hanen – the judge presiding over a multi-state lawsuit against the administration regarding nObama’s amnesty program – has just about had it with the defiance of the federal government. The problems began back in April. Two months after Judge Hanen issued an injunction blocking the president’s amnesty from going into effect, the court found that the administration had already put the wheels in motion. On June 7th, Hanen ordered several top administration officials to appear in court to explain why he should not hold them in contempt. He offered lawyers for the government a chance to avoid that hearing; if they could file a report by the end of July demonstrating compliance with the injunction, he would cancel the contempt of court hearing. Of course, it’s hard to be surprised. If nObama didn’t let the Constitution stand in his way, why would he respect a federal injunction? He doesn’t believe in the law; he believes in his own liberal agenda. His amnesty plan sets the stage for Democratic dominance. He’s not about to let one judge down in Texas ruin this for him.

 Whistleblower Speaks Out on Improperly Purged VA Applications  
{insider.foxnews.com} ~ A VA whistleblower who spoke out in an interview with Neil Cavuto says he's faced harassment and retaliation for going public with his allegations about the lack of medical care for veterans... After the interview, Scott Davis says he was asked by his superiors to sign a notice stating that he would not speak publicly again... When Davis refused, he received an email which he interpreted as a threat. "Mr. Davis, with all due respect, the notification that was sent to you and to your representative to appear before the Administrative Investigation Board was not an invitation to which you can decline," read the email from Department of Veterans Affairs HR consultant William Lamm to Davis. Davis, an Eligibility Center program specialist, said today on "Fox and Friends" that he got the email right after his interview with Cavuto, in which he accused the VA in Georgia of improperly purging benefit applications.

 3rd Planned Parenthood video: 'Huge trafficking of fetal tissues'  
{Paige Winfield Cunningham} ~ A third Planned Parenthood video was released Tuesday morning that features a whistleblower who says... her biomedical company would compensate Planned Parenthood clinics for fetal organs based on their condition and quality after being extracted from an abortion. Holly O'Donnell is a former technician for California-based Stem Express, a company that contracts with abortion clinics for the tissue. "The more valuable the tissue the more money you get, so if you can somehow procure a brain or a heart you're going to get more money than just umbilical cord," O'Donnell says in the video. "So I guess that's incentive to try and get the hard stuff because they get more money." How does it feel McCon-nell? http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/third-planned-parenthood-video-re...

 GOP Congressman Files to Oust backstabber Boehner...  
{Debra Heine} ~ In a move that has reportedly taken Republican leaders completely by surprise, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) late Tuesday afternoon filed a motion to try to force Speaker backstabber John Boehner from his leadership post... Meadows was one of four conservative House Republicans  disciplined by backstabber Boehner in June for “voting against the party” on trade legislation. At the time, when contacted by Roll Call, the North Carolina Republican declined to comment. That was then, this is now: According to Politico, fellow conservatives have already contacted Meadows to tell him that the move to oust backstabber Boehner right now is not a good idea.

 Terrible! nObama Promises to Veto anti-Sanctuary City Legislation  
{Tim Brown} ~ The Republican-controlled House Thursday passed legislation that would withhold federal law-enforcement grants from cities that shelter illegal immigrants from federal authorities, part of a campaign to punish what are known as sanctuary cities... The bill, passed 241-179, is the GOP's answer to the shooting this month of Kathryn Steinle, 32 years old, on a San Francisco pier, allegedly by an illegal immigrant who had been convicted of seven felonies and previously deported to Mexico. The Associated Press provided the lame excuse from the nObama administration that the bill would "lead to mistrust between local communities and law enforcement agencies" and, therefore, he would veto the bill. I really hate this president. He needs to go.

 America’s Enemies Are Laughing at Us  
{Cliff Kinaid} ~ Time magazine is out with a colorful and glossy “Inside the New Cuba” special edition, featuring smiling Cuban kids wearing Communist garb on the cover. Page 64 has a photo showing “Cuban fans” holding up “their national flag”... at a baseball game. It turns out that the really happy Cubans are those who have been defecting from the island “paradise,” as Time magazine calls the prison camp country. Credit goes to Christine Rousselle of Townhall.com for covering these defections. They seem to be developing into a regular feature, with Rousselle providing regular updates about additional defections. So far, eight players from the Cuban men’s field hockey team, four rowers from the Cuban national team, and two members of the Cuban soccer team have defected.

Thoughts on the passing scene and Presidential Politics
Chris Skates
.
     {chrisskates.com} ~ As a columnist, I’ve had a hard time keeping up this summer. One can hardly formulate a draft of a column on the historically bad Supreme Court decision on nObamacare before they come out with another worse decision on marriage. One can barely write about nObama’s latest horrible decision before he makes a horrific decision (Like arming Iran with a nuke or giving them 150 Billion dollars.) There there are the macabre videos of Planned Parenthood which have put every American on notice that mass murder and even dismemberment is being subsidized by American taxpayers.
.
     It’s just all so overwhelming, which I think is the point. I have several columns in the works on any given week, but I have pulled back from publishing or posting until I see how events play out. For example, last week I deleted a column because by the time I got it completed (I wrote it over a three evening period) real life events had rendered the column outdated.
.
     Meanwhile, I haven’t yet commented on the Presidential race. Obviously, I won’t waste my time or yours commenting on any of the proposed Democrat nominees, all are equally awful. Its way too early to predict anything, but I will give you my top five candidates in what is actually a pretty good Republican field:
.
     #1) Ted Cruz- I have been in this man’s corner since before he won the Senate seat in Texas. If you’ve read this blog much at all you know what a huge supporter I am of Cruz. This week alone he showed his courage many times.
.
Here:
.
.
And Here:
.
     I don’t buy for a second the argument that Cruz can’t win. If he can’t win, who can? A moderate (liberal) like Jeb Busch? Christie? These two are McCain/Romney revisited. Besides, every American better hope a true conservative can win. We have moved so far to the left in just the past 12 months, no moderate will have the fortitude to do what must be done to deliver the country from the brink.
.
     #2) Ted Cruz- Again, this is what leadership looks like. Watch him here when Code Pink tried to crash his speech:
.
.
     #3) Scott Walker- Walker is a true conservative. He withstood multiple recalls that he never should have had to face. He has improved Wisconsin’s economy significantly even while having to fight for his life every step of the way.
.
     #4) Bobby Jindahl-Another guy I have seen in person. An excellent Governor and solid conservative. He has successfully led a blue state through some tough circumstances and fought back against the Democrat machine which has run Louisianan since Huey Long.
.
     #5) Ben Carson- Perhaps the most intelligent and accomplished man that ever ran for the nomination. However, I fear he doesn’t have the ground game to get the nomination or to even get close I am afraid.
.
     Honorable Mention-Donald Trump. I don’t trust him (He is a social liberal and said recently at the family forum that he didn’t feel he ever needed God’s forgiveness. Plus I used to watch the Apprentice. The guy has some real liberal ideas on some things. However, give credit where credit is due. The man changed the national conversation on immigration and gave voice to many victims of violent crimes perpetuated by illegals.
.
     Next time-Which Republican’s I feel would be a disaster if they become our nominee.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
