“No more baby parts!” is what investigators say Robert Dear, the alleged Planned Parenthood spree killer, said after surrendering to police. It isn’t difficult to deduce his motives in shooting up a “women’s health clinic.” He was revolted by Planned Parenthood’s trade in baby parts—er, I mean fetal tissue—and he decided to pick up a gun to avenge the injustice.

Predictably, abortion supporters are using the incident to maximum political advantage. From now on, anyone who references Planned Parenthood’s lucrative side business in baby parts will be dismissed as a terrorist sympathizer. Planned Parenthood can also blame pro-lifers generally, and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) specifically, for inspiring the shooting. Never mind the fact that CMP condemned the attack on its website, they still have blood on their hands.

The idea that Dear took his inspiration from this summer’s undercover CMP video is unfair though not entirely untrue. I’ll depart here from a lot of pro-lifers and say that the videos are linked to the shooting, though not quite in the way that Planned Parenthood would have you believe. Robert Dear was likely driven into a fit of rage after seeing CMP-produced videos but it wasn’t the videos that angered him so much as their content. That’s a substantial distinction.

In any case, CMP cannot be held responsible for the actions of an unstable third party. Leftists, I believe, would understand this principle a little better if the shoe were on the other foot. Consider, for example, terrorism directed at military recruiting stations—the 2008 bombing in Times Square, the 2009 shooting in Little Rock, and the 2015 shooting in Chattanooga. The defeatist Left does not take responsibility for these acts of terror; but should they? Only if they want to be consistent.

There is no doubt, however, that their rhetoric amplifies the vitriol against our military. These are people who cavalierly toss around terms such as “war criminal” and “genocide” until they become meaningless noise. They claim that the Bush-era War on Terror was in fact a religious crusade to kill or convert all Muslims. They argue that President Bush lied us into war in order to steal Iraq’s oil—and even Afghanistan’s oil, which Afghanistan doesn’t even have. If one really believed that the War on Terror was a war of aggression, a calculated genocide, and a massive theft of natural resources, wouldn’t one be justified in killing a few military recruiters?

But Code Pink and International A.N.S.W.E.R. don’t think that their rhetoric makes them responsible for terrorism against military recruiters. And they’re right. Blaming them would only let the guys who actually did it off the hook. Rhetoric doesn’t kill people—people kill people.

What about CBS News? Surely it put our soldiers at risk, if only because their program 60 Minutes II broke the Abu Ghraib prison scandal? No, CBS News isn’t culpable either. It isn’t the media’s job to collude in silence just because the story might make someone angry enough to go off the edge and kill someone. The same principle applies to the baby parts videos—CFP was only the messenger, and for that we should be grateful.

Robert Dear did indeed act from a red-hot anger, though CMP’s role in stirring it up was limited to peeling back the veil of secrecy that Planned Parenthood very much wanted to keep in place. Their role in Baby Parts-gate was identical that of 60 Minutes II in the Abu Ghraib scandal—namely, as the messenger.

Through the use of undercover videos, CMP exposed Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and selling of baby parts—eyes, liver, brains, and more. Perhaps you’ve heard that the videos were deceptively edited. Wrong. A study by Coalfire, a digital forensic analysis company, found that the videos were “authentic and show no evidence of manipulation.” Yes, all the videos were “edited”—just like nearly everything else seen on TV, because they are hours long and viewers generally like to see the highlight reel. Anyone who wants to see the uncut videos can find those on CMP’s website as well.

Planned Parenthood even admits that it harvests “fetal tissue,” a horribly dishonest euphemism, though it claims not to profit from the practice, which is all it must minimally do to stay on the right side of the law. In the haze of this summer’s fracas over baby parts, the issue became confused, largely because Planned Parenthood tried to alter the definition of the word “sell.” Though it admitted that it provides “fetal tissue,” it claimed that it sought only reimbursement for the cost of procurement and shipping. Ergo, no profit. But the definition of selling has no relationship to profit. Selling is still selling even if the seller breaks even or takes a loss.

As the drip-drip-drip release of videos continued, the debate descended into abject silliness with Planned Parenthood defending its baby chop shops by falsely claiming that they operate on a strictly nonprofit basis. True to form, progressives implied that there is nothing morally suspect about killing children or divvying up their organs. The real evil is profit. As long as no one gets rich off the deal they’re as pure as the driven snow.

Except Planned Parenthood did make a profit and anyone who tells you otherwise is a liar. One video features abortionist Mary Gatter haggling with prospective “buyers” over the price of organs. When Gatter is asked how much she would charge for “intact tissue,” she responds by saying, “Why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying?” Odd. Why should that matter? If Planned Parenthood only wants to be reimbursed for expenses then it should have one non-negotiable price. When the “buyer” refuses to name a dollar amount, Gatter replies, “You know in negotiations the person who throws out the figure first is at a loss, right?”

Who cares who’s “at a loss?” This isn’t a used car that’s being bought and sold—it’s human organs. The fact that this representative of Planned Parenthood would try to drive a hard bargain is prima facie evidence that she was trying to get the best price for her organization. Considering the fact that it’s illegal to charge one cent more than the cost of procurement and shipping, one can only conclude that the video is evidence of a crime. This woman should be in jail.

So should a lot of people. In video after video we saw employees of the abortion industry discussing how to cook the books, how to avoid oversight, and how to alter the “medical procedure” to get the best saleable material. All of these are federal crimes. Other videos strongly imply partial-birth abortions and even children who are born alive while their mothers waited for abortions. These children were presumably the victims of “post-birth abortions.”

Yet no one has gone to jail. There were meaningless congressional hearings of course, and a few states tried to turn off the spigots of cash to this reprehensible organization but no one at Planned Parenthood is wearing an orange jumpsuit. So Robert Dear decided to exercise some vigilante justice. That makes him a(n alleged) murderer and he will likely be convicted and jailed for the rest of his life, unlike the Planned Parenthood execs who have thus far been allowed to skate.

Mark my words—in the coming weeks there will be an intense media campaign to marginalize anyone who dares to mention the fact that Planned Parenthood sells baby parts. That’s wing-nutty terrorist talk! But it also happens to be true, or at least it was until the videos debuted. No one disputes this, not even Planned Parenthood, though they deny that they ever made a profit.

It appears that Robert Dear didn’t care that much if Planned Parenthood was making dough from its organ sales. The mere fact that they were harvesting baby parts was enough to ignite this human powder keg. That doesn’t justify Dear’s rampage but neither does it negate the plain, undisputed fact that Planned Parenthood harvests all sorts of identifiable human body parts and exchanges them for money. Saying so shouldn’t require the payment of a steep social penalty but unfortunately it does and it’s only going to get steeper. Gird your loins and expect the worst.

An Open Letter to Senator Rand Paul

Most Illustrious Excellency,


I would discuss a matter with you today which has a direct bearing on the health of the American people.

Since you are the doctor who knows best what ails our nation AND given your active role in being a true champion of the American people; I come to you with hat-in-hand, to plead my case for true healthcare reform.

There are some politicians who pay lip service—in their job application for high office—when seeking the approval and support of the American people, but their insincere  assertions only function as an echo chamber  for their product line, which is nothing more than a hollow political slogan.

These cynical  politicians promise the world to  those they consider sheep to be shorn.  Their motives are transparent in nefarious intent, to the people who must suffer the tripe they spew, in lieu of a concrete plan to improve the life of the average American.

The “Big Cheese” (with legs) lies to us, telling us if we buy into  his healthcare plan:  “You can keep your doctor.” 

Then comes the final pronouncement—at the end of the sales pitch; we hear the word, “PERIOD;”  as if such faux “reassurance,” were designed to end all debate in the  establishment  of a foundation on which the American  people can rely.

Such counterfeit claims are as good as the “gold” of a fractional reserve banking system.  In short, the “account” is eternally in arrears, as it is the "fuzzy math" of thin air.

The paper it is printed on, is as worthless as the treaty promises of the "Great White Father,"  which were made to the red man.

The alleged “messiah” who promised to control the tides on his inauguration to the apotheosis of the American presidency,  has taken a perfectly good healthcare system --which was the finest in the world-- and reduced it to rubble.

The  healthcare "solution" he has established, is nothing more than a hot-rush heroin “fix,” to be infused into the veins of a dying republic.

The American people cannot eat Politicalspeak-- burned into stone-- as if it were the staff of life.

Such empty promises from our elected officials go down the collective gullet of the American people, like a golf ball, greased with snake oil.

Like the Native Americans who were concentrated on U.S. government  reservations;  We the People, have been confined and reduced  to specially designated  “spheres of influence,” where our collective voice is drowned-out,  by  the  yapping of coyotes.  Our voice as a people is “Gone With the Wind.”

We “rule” like the Biblical Moses,  insofar  as our law-giving staff, is nothing but a common stick, designed to rule over the scorpions of barren wasteland and NOT our manifest destiny as a people.

We have been stripped of the royalty of self-determination.

Americans  find themselves collectively, as a lone voice, crying in the wilderness AND like Moses of olden times;  We feel the despair of losing our lordship over the land and the sacred halls of our ancestors.

We the People, have been reduced to "lower than the dust" status.

Our concerns are considered marginal at best, as we now lack “standing” in the land our forefathers built.

The banks and corporations have grown up around the people—as  President  Thomas Jefferson  had envisioned would one day occur—to displace us  and steal our patrimony:

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, (i.e. the business cycle”) the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property,  until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

Even now the people are witness to corporations forcing American employees to dig their own graves, by training the foreign slave labor which will replace them.

This paradigm paves the way for the ascendancy of Big Brother and the attendant Orwellian state.

Our interests have been surrendered as “implied consent” to special interests.

Soon Americans will be tagged like livestock, under the guise of an alleged national security threat.

That threat has been introduced by the government.  That is the way the game is played, by what George Washington fingered a  “dangerous servant” and  “fearful master.”

The people are not witless, to the wiles of the international bankers, nor how they deprive the people of the benefit of their own government, by controlling  our politicians as if they were so much penny candy, to be bought.

“I have never seen more Senators express discontent with their jobs…I think the major cause is that deep  down in our hearts, we have been accomplices in doing something terrible and unforgivable to our wonderful country.  Deep down in our heart, we know that we have given our children a legacy of bankruptcy.  We have defrauded our  country, to get ourselves elected.”—Senator John Danforth

Government has  NO PLACE in the realm of healthcare, nor should it intervene between the relationship of  the physician and the patient.

There is however one specific area  of healthcare, where the government can actually atone for the historic wrongs  it has committed against  the American people.

That permissible area is medical marijuana legislation to protect the sick and elderly, from fast-buck artists.

New laws are needed which make "weed" more accessible to the afflicted.

Due to the theft of my country, poor planning on my part and a major disability which plagues me; I find myself reduced to the status of "ward of the state."

I defy my assigned fate as a "useless eater."

I seek to  atone for my own folly and personal misfortune, by now addressing  you and our alleged “public servants,” with bold conservative colors.

“Robin Shooteth His Last Shaft.”

The issue which I would raise in specific, is the use of medical marijuana and how something the American people clearly approved, has now been systematically denied and thwarted by the big business of the medical establishment.

I have been suffering from heart disease for more than four years (since 2010) and I just got out of the hospital only the day before yesterday.  I am already feeling I need to go back.  I am just that sick.

I did not sleep last night, because I was struggling to breathe, under the new medication.

I feel horrible from the ravages of the disease and I find no relief from ANY of the prescription medicines prescribed to ameliorate my suffering. 

These medicines not only amplify the suffering, from horrendous side effects; they introduce new pathologies.

I now have extensive skin cancer, which was sudden in onset, from the use of the heart poison Lisinopril.

I went to the dermatologist for excision and biopsy, just one day out of the hospital.

I have been on the proverbial  “drug roller coaster,”  totally victimized by Big Pharma, which grows fat on the death and disability of our people.

The practice of using  poisons, which  corporations peddle and force onto medical patients, is comparable to  Warren Buffet saying  “NO” to development of the Keystone Pipeline, so as not to interfere with his railroad transport  profits.

Never mind that 65% of the American people support such a move. One rich man rules over the majority.

I was told  only days ago, in the hospital,  that I could NOT access medical marijuana in the hospital setting, despite the fact that I hold a valid medical marijuana license.

I was forced to use dangerous narcotics, such as Dilaudid and Morphine to relieve the pain which wracked my body.

No form of marijuana was even available there…but it is available outside the hospital setting, if one wants to pay Big Pharma  sixty- four dollars, for a single tablet.

I hold two valid marijuana prescriptions; one from from a medical marijuana doctor; the other from my cardiologist--who is on the cutting edge of medicine.

I was denied the use of a beneficial herb, created by God, to relieve the suffering of mankind and directed instead by the medical establishment to use dangerous narcotics.

No wonder I feel like Hell incarnate!

You, Sir, are a doctor who understands such things and you may be our next president, or vice president.

As a medical marijuana  patient, I see that scads of money is being made by someone and that the poor are forced to oftentimes forgo Marijuana treatment,  due to the outrageous expense of the product and the "Mother May I?" Rules of Order associated with its use.

 The dispensaries operate under the transparent fiction that  customers are “donating” their money to a charitable foundation and that the product would otherwise be freely available.

Such a ruse, only insults the intelligence of Americans who purchase marijuana for whatever reason.

Based on my own personal  frustration with the system;  I seek redress of grievances on behalf of all Americans, who suffer and cannot gain real relief  from the dangerous side effects of prescription drugs.

It is my fondest hope that you and Senator Sessions will form a coalition of senators to “go to bat,” once more, on behalf of our suffering people, who often fall prey to the snake oil salesman.

Please “get the ball rolling” immediately, to ensure that valid medical patients may receive their  marijuana medicine, without any more bullshit.

Thank you,  Sir,  for being a noble public servant, who continually stands with the American people and never seems to receive the accolades you so richly deserve.

I salute you and Senator Jeff Sessions as men of quality…”manly men” as it were.

Psych meds linked to 90% of school shootings

Expert: Psychiatric drugs likely cause of Lanza's extreme violence

Published: 2 days ago

NEW YORK – From the moment news emerged Friday that a young man had carried out a horrific massacre of elementary-school children, politicians from local city halls to the White House have been restoking the age-old push for more gun control. While guns have been a common denominator in mass slayings at schools by teens, there’s another familiar element that seems increasingly to be minimized.

Some 90 percent of school shootings over more than a decade have been linked to a widely prescribed type of antidepressant called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs, according to British psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, a founder of, an independent website for researching and reporting on prescription drugs.

Though there has been no definitive confirmation that drugs played a role in the Newtown, Conn., assault, that killed 20 children and six adults, media have cited family members and acquaintances saying suspect Adam Lanza was taking prescription medication to treat “a neurological-development disorder,” possibly Aspergers.

Healy cautioned that the public needs “to wait to find out what Adam Lanza was on, and whether his behavior does fit the template of a treatment-induced problem.”

However, in an email to WND, he said he suspected prescribed psychiatric medications was the cause of Lanza’s violent behavior.

Healy said that while the public waits to learn more about Lanza, there are two general points that can be made.

First, he said, “psychotropic drugs of pretty well any group can trigger violence up to and including homicide.”

“Second, the advocates of treatment claim both that it is the illness and not the drugs that causes violence and that we are leaving huge numbers of people untreated.”

But Healy argued that if this were the case, “we should not find that comfortably over 90 percent of school shootings are linked to medication intake.”

Dr. Peter R. Breggin, a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and former full-time consultant at the National Institute of Mental Health, told WND it’s likely that problems for Lanza began with “getting tangled up” with psychiatric medicine.

Breggin insisted there has been overwhelming scientific evidence for decades correlating psychiatrically prescribed drugs with violence.

Writing in Ethical Human Sciences and Services, a peer-reviewed scholarly journal, in 2003, Breggin concluded SSRI drugs could be a factor in suicide, violence and other forms of extreme abnormal behavior, as evidenced in case reports, controlled clinical trials, and epidemiological studies in children and adults.

Since the 1970s, Breggin has testified in approximately 100 trials, including one in which Judge Robert Heinrichs ruled the adverse effects of taking Prozac drove a 16-year-old in Winnipeg, Canada, to commit an unprovoked murder.

Breggin appeared before the Veterans Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010 in support of his 2008 book “Medication Madness: The Role of Psychiatric Drugs in Cases of Violence, Suicide and Crime.”

Breggin testified to Congress that research conducted in the medical science demonstrates a causal relationship between antidepressant drugs and the production of suicide, violence, mania and other behavioral abnormalities.

He warned Congress of the risks of giving these drugs to heavily armed young men and women in the military.

Mainstream religion

Breggin asserted that establishment media “ignores the scientific evidence linking psychiatric medications and violent behavior because psychiatry is the religion of the mainstream media, and they don’t want to see the dangers of psychiatrically prescribed drugs.”

“Besides, the drug companies also have incredible influence through advertising such that they can call the shots,” he said.

He believes the Lanza case fits the pattern of school shooters in some of the most famous incidents in recent memory, including the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado and the massacre at Virginia Tech in 2007.

“Adam Lanza has in common with many of the young men who were shooters that they were outsiders who lived in the shadows, who deal with a lot of shame, humiliation and isolation,” Breggin explained.

He calls the psychiatric diagnoses “worthless.”

“We know exactly who they are,” he said. “They are called ‘geeky’ in the extreme. Not a single one has ever come forward with a close friend. They are alienated from their families, and they have been involved in psychiatry.”

Breggin insists that instead of psychiatric treatment, children of this kind need “more reaching out, more socialization, more caring, more involvement.”

“Our schools, our families, and our communities need to be aware of the kids who are withdrawn and violent, not because they are going to become violent – hardly any of them are going to become violent – but because these are really hurt kids,” he said.

“We can call them evil, we can call them mentally ill, but the pattern is really quite clear,” Breggin continued. “They are highly intelligent and highly withdrawn and they are all involved with psychiatry, so the claim psychiatry is going to do some good is really ridiculous.”

In many school shootings carried out by minors, court documents are sealed and the extent of chemical use is unknown to the public.

But in a number of high-profile cases, the link has been reported:

  • Kip Kinkel was withdrawing from Prozac and had been prescribed Ritalin when he murdered his mother and stepfather then shot 22 classmates, killing two, in 1998.
  • Christopher Pittman was withdrawing from Luvox and from Paxil when he killed his paternal grandparents in 2001.
  • Elizabeth Bush, who fired at fellow students in Williamsport, Pa., in 2001, wounding one, was on Prozac.
  • Jason Hoffman, was on Effexor and Celexa when he opened fire at his El Cajon, Calif., high school, wounding five.
  • Shawn Cooper of Notus, Idaho, was on antidepressants when he fired a shotgun on students and staff.
  • T.J. Solomon, on antidepressants, wounded six at his Conyers, Ga., high school.
  • Eric Harris was taking Luvox when he and fellow student Dylan Klebold killed 12 students and a teacher and wounded 24 others before turning their guns on themselves at Columbine High School in Colorado.
  • At Virginia Tech in 2007, where 32 were murdered, authorities found “prescription medications related to the treatment of psychological problems had been found among Mr. Cho’s effects,” according to the New York Times.

“Violence and other potentially criminal behavior caused by prescription drugs are medicine’s best kept secret,” Healy said in a statement last month. “Never before in the fields of medicine and law have there been so many events with so much concealed data and so little focused expertise.”

In the past six years, Healy has authored two best-selling books analyzing the degree to which the pharmaceutical industry has influenced medical doctors to prescribe antidepressant drugs to patients with psychiatric problems: “Let Them Eat Prozac: The Unhealthy Relationship Between the Pharmaceutical Industry and Depression,” in 2006 and “Pharmageddon” in 2012.

Recently, Healy’s added a “violence section” to its website, allowing users to enter the name of a prescription drug to find out the side effects recorded in the more than 4 million adverse drug event reports filed with the FDA since 2004.

Was Lanza on meds?

Writing for Monday, Emily Willingham was quick to warn against demonizing Asperger’s syndrome, or autism in general, as the cause of Lanza’s violence. Likewise, in a New York magazine piece titled “Asperger’s is a Red Herring to Explain the Newtown Massacre,” Adam Martin wrote, “As the nation sets out to understand how Friday’s massacre came to pass, some are rightly worried that the high-functioning form of autism will become unfairly stigmatized.”

Nevertheless, credible sources have not withdrawn published claims that Lanza was on prescribed psychiatric medication at the time of the shooting.

On CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday, Mark and Louise Tambascio, friends of the shooter’s mother, Nancy Lanza, said Adam Lanza was being medicated for Asperger’s.

“I know [Adam Lanza] was on medication and everything, but she homeschooled him at home cause he couldn’t deal with the school classes sometimes,” Louise Tambascio told CBS reporter Scott Pelley. “So she just homeschooled Adam at that home. And that was her life.”

Her comment followed Mark Tambascio explaining to Scott Pelley that “friends told us that [Asperger's syndrome] did dominate the Lanzas’ lives.”

In addition, the Washington Post reported over the weekend an unnamed former neighbor of Nancy and Adam Lanza in Newtown, Conn., recalled Adam as “a really rambunctious kid” who “was on medication.”

The story became confused when a now discredited source claiming to be Adam Lanza’s “Uncle Jonathan” told several publications, including the Sun in the United Kingdom, that Adam was being treated with the strong anti-psychotic drug Fanapt.

Later reports found no relatives who knew “Uncle Jonathan.”

Separately, law enforcement officers have found evidence Lanza played graphically violent video games, the Hartford Courant reported on Sunday.

The Express in the United Kingdom reported Monday that Lanza had “an unhealthy obsession for violent video games” and that his favorite video game was said to be a “shockingly violent” fantasy war game called Dynasty Warriors, which is “thought to have given him inspiration to act on his darkest thoughts.”

Wow, who is missing the bus here! If we deregulate the medical insurance companies, they will have to do all of the work in conversions - this adds jobs & allows competition - the American way. But, NO, Obama wants to take over the insurance companies just like he did the auto companies (except Ford). Is his ego SO big that he has to push us into socialism? Our government can barely run itself let alone taking over private industry!
