Another horrifying assertion by Planned Parenthood

No matter where you stand on the issue, the allegation that a baby surviving a botched abortion can legally be executed is noxious, repellent and — yes — evil. Yet this is the position of Planned Parenthood.

Florida legislators considering a bill to require abortionists to provide medical care to an infant who survives an abortion were shocked during a committee hearing this week when a Planned Parenthood official endorsed a right to post-birth abortion.

Alisa LaPolt Snow, the lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, testified that her organization believes the decision to kill an infant who survives a failed abortion should be left up to the woman seeking an abortion and her abortion doctor.

“So, um, it is just really hard for me to even ask you this question because I’m almost in disbelief,” said Rep. Jim Boyd. “If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?”

“We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” said Planned Parenthood lobbyist Snow.

…Rep. Jose Oliva followed up, asking the Planned Parenthood official, “You stated that a baby born alive on a table as a result of a botched abortion that that decision should be left to the doctor and the family. Is that what you’re saying?”

Again, Snow replied, “That decision should be between the patient and the health care provider.”

“I think that at that point the patient would be the child struggling on the table, wouldn’t you agree?” asked Oliva.

“That’s a very good question. I really don’t know how to answer that,” Snow said. “I would be glad to have some more conversations with you about this.”

David Steinberg is as nauseous as I am.

…there is no daylight between her testimony and an advocacy of decriminalizing murder.

If a child brought into the world under such circumstances is unworthy of life via the intentions of the mother, logic dictates that the child would be placed in such limbo indefinitely, until such time as the mother chooses to kill it. Two minutes later, twenty-five years later: if this monstrous woman could shape a society according to her testimony, then the mother would necessarily have a permanent right to slaughter her child.

But Todd Akin is the extremist, don’t ya’ know?

Which brings me to Kermit Gosnell.

And one Illinois State Senator Barack Obama.

Nowhere to Hide: Did Doctor Doom Marc Faber Just Abandon Gold?

Well known economist and publisher of the Gloom, Boom and Doom Report, Doctor Marc Faber, raised eyebrows this morning when the long-time proponent of being your own central bank was quoted by Bloomberg as saying that the coming crisis will be so severe that you won’t even be able to hide in gold.

So we are creating bubbles and bubbles and bubbles. This bubble will come to an end. My concern is that we are going to have a systemic crisis where it is going to be very difficult to hide.

Even in gold, it will be difficult to hide.

As a well respected contrarian investment adviser, Faber’s comments will no doubt be used by those who shun gold as a wealth protecting investment vehicle to scare those who have taken financial shelter in the 5,000 year old medium of exchange. In fact, in the Faber Bloomberg interview host Alix Steele actually claims that gold has “not held up as a safe haven,” an asinine statement considering that the precious metals has risen precipitously to new all-time highs from a price of $ 750 per ounce during the throes of the financial crisis in 2008, to about $ 1600 today.

But did Faber really mean that gold as a store of wealth is no longer viable?

Has he abandoned his long-time principles of owning hard assets during financial, economic and political turmoil?

Hardly.

For the last five years he has vehemently argued that all currencies are doomed, except for gold:

In today’s world, all paper currencies are not particularly desirable. All governments will print money. All governments will have fiscal stimulus packages as soon as something goes wrong. And all paper currencies will lose in their purchasing power. So, there’s only one ultimate currency and these are precious metals, specifically gold. (May 5, 2010)

But Faber is a realist, thus there is more to his recent views than the notion that you won’t be able to hide in gold for safety.

Faber is not suggesting you shouldn’t own gold, he’s highlighting how serious of a crisis we’re actually in, something the mainstream media won’t touch with a ten foot pole.

He has long predicted a collapse so severe that it could realistically spiral into a widespread global war, a situation where gold may be difficult to trade simply because traditional systems of commerce will have essentially been destroyed. According to an interview from late 2012, Marc Faber says that we may well see World War III within the next five years and he has advocated for not just investing in gold, but assets that will matter when life as we know it today no longer exists:

…he says buy a farm you can tend to yourself way out in the boondocks. And protect it with high voltage fences, barbed wire, booby traps, military weapons and Dobermans. (August 2010)

Thus, as howling mainstream media pundits will point to Faber’s “turn” on gold as evidence that this relic is no longer worthy of investment, understand that Faber’s ideas cannot be summed up in a single sound bite.

We are dealing with a large scale global collapse that will affect every single person on this planet.

It’s going to be violent, and as Faber notes, may involve a downed electricity grid, poison in our water supplies, dirty bombs and a crash of the internet infrastructure.

And just to reiterate where Marc Faber stands on gold, he made it pretty clear in February of 2010 when he said, “The One Thing I Will Never Do in My Life is Sell My Gold.

Take Faber’s non-mainstream filtered advice. Be your own central bank and stock up on hard assets – farm land, a means of food production, security measures, precious metals, and anything else that can’t be papered over.

QOTD: “It is saddening to see the president today, once again, try to take advantage of this tragic murder to promote an agenda that will do nothing to stop violent crime, but will undermine the constitutional rights of all law-abiding Americans. I am committed to working with Sens. Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, and Jim Inhofe — and I hope many other colleagues — to use any procedural means necessary to protect those fundamental rights.

In any conversation about how to prevent future tragedies such as Sandy Hook, our focus should be on stopping criminals from obtaining guns. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration has failed to make this a priority — in 2010, out of more than 15,700 fugitives and felons who tried to illegally purchase a firearm, the Obama Justice Department prosecuted only 44. That is unacceptable.” –Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)

Lies, Damn Lies, and “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”

As the “Gang of Eight” secretly negotiates some sort of grand, “comprehensive immigration reform” bill — in conjunction with La Raza and the government of Mexico — let’s step back for a moment and consider the context:

• The union representing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been shut out of “negotiations”

• All negotiations are occurring behind closed doors — in smoke-filled rooms, one would presume — without any of the traditional legislative process that would permit the public (or most Senators, for that matter) to read and debate the bill

• In back-to-back interviews on Spanish language television, President Obama said that he is “confident that we can get it done” (“it” meaning Amnesty and open borders, one could surmise).

But let’s drop back even further. Let’s remember some key promises.


Do you recall all of the president’s promises regarding Obamacare? How health care premiums would drop by an average of $ 2,500 a family? How if you liked your health care plan you could keep it? Remember all of the endless, Chavez-like speeches?

Yep, we do. Then please consider the following headlines from the last 24 hours alone:

Federal healthcare law could boost some California premiums by 30%: Los Angeles Times
Health insurance cost expected to skyrocket in 2014 under Obamacare: Times Free-Press
Study: Claims costs that drive premiums will rise 32 percent in under health law: Washington Post
CNN Reports On Rising Health Care Premiums Due To Obamacare: RCP

Health care law changes will be drastic for many: Star Beacon
Health care reform making many woozy: American Farm Bureau
Insurers expect premiums to rise sharply next year for some: UT San Diego
Sebelius: Some Insurance Costs Could Increase When Law Is Implemented: Kaiser Health News

When it comes to the Stimulus, Cash-for-Clunkers, Dodd-Frank, Obamacare and every other exercise in central planning, this president and the Democrat Party in general have a record only the 1962 Mets could love.

Obama makes Pinocchio look like George Washington.
