Utah woman kills and stores seven newborns

Originally posted at Live Action News

Police in Utah recently made a discovery in a Pleasant Grove home they’ll likely never forget. It appears that, over the course of a decade, 39-year-old Megan Huntsman delivered seven full-term infants. The gruesome twist is that Huntsman allegedly killed six of the children after they were born alive, and then stored their bodies in boxes in the home’s garage.

 

Megan Huntsman’s behavior is reminiscent of the late Orem, Utah, mother that covertly gave birth three times and then left the infants to die. In 1999, Darcie Jo Baum bled to death after delivering an infant son in a basement toilet where she left him struggling in vain to survive. Too late to save Darcie Jo and her three babies, Utah instituted a Safe Haven law in 2001, which, if Megan had been unselfish enough to spare their lives, could have saved six human beings.

The Safe Haven law enables biological parents to anonymously relinquish custody of the newborns without the threat of being prosecuted.

Instead of choosing life and anonymity,  alleged serial killer Huntsman chose to consign at least six of her children to a fate the Safe Haven law was enacted to prevent.

As a result, Megan Huntsman is accused of delivering the children, systematically killing them one-by-one, placing them into cardboard boxes, and storing their frail frames like gardening tools or old books in the garage of a house she hasn’t lived in for three years.

In anticipation of moving back into the house owned by his parents for the summer, Megan’s ex-husband Darren West came by to clean up the garage, which is when the gruesome discovery was made. It was Darren who called the police.

Recently released from prison, the police responded to West’s call and after searching the property found one full-term infant inside the woman’s home, there since 2011, that appeared to be stillborn. According to police Capt. Michael Roberts, six dead infants were then discovered packaged up and stored in the garage.

Megan Huntsman and Darren West have three daughters together aged 18, and 20 and 13 years old. The three girls still live in the house where the babies were found. DNA testing is underway to determine whether Mr. West is also the biological father of the seven, count them, seven dead babies.

After the bodies were discovered, Megan, who other than a 2011 driving citation has no criminal record, was taken into custody and accused of six counts of murder. Following her arrest, Huntsman admitted to strangling or suffocating six of the infants. Her bail is set at $6 million, $1 million for each count of murder.

Longtime neighbor Sharon Chipman told police that she had noticed Megan gaining and losing weight over the years but never surmised that she might have been pregnant. Chipman was shocked calling Megan a great neighbor whom she trusted to watch her toddler grandson for years.

“She took good care of him. She was good. This really shocks me,” she said.

Aaron Hawker, Huntsman’s next-door neighbor, also never suspected Huntsman of being pregnant. Mr. Hawker described the mother with the six dead babies in the garage as a great neighbor, and her ex husband (the one who found, may have fathered the children, and who is not being accused of any crime) as “a good guy.”

Clearly after baby number three, Megan exercised unconventional measures in planning her parenthood. After all, in the minds of the Planned Parenthood crowd the desire is that “every child…be a wanted child” or their lives intrinsically lack value.

The question is, could Ms. Huntsman have merely been confused and felt she was exercising her right to choose, but choosing to do it post- (not pre-) birth?

What happens when a child is born alive is a decision Florida Planned Parenthood lobbyist, Alison Laport Snow, on behalf of Planned Parenthood in 2013, proclaimed should be a “left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.” In Huntsman’s case, the physician wasn’t present, so she decided for herself.

Megan Huntsman is a woman who performed filicide on six of her children whose delicate corpses have lain, some for as long as a decade, in cardboard boxes wrapped in towels like old trophies. Although innocent until proven guilty, for all intents and purposes, and based on her own admission, Megan Huntsman is a bona fide serial killer.

Therefore, considering huge influence Planned Parenthood has had on the thinking of women like Megan Huntsman, maybe in her next FUSE Network interview Cecile Richards could provide her spin on the Huntsman murders.

Perhaps Richards could clarify for America how Megan Huntsman’s actions differed from those of abortionist Kermit Gosnell who saved trophy feet from full term aborted fetuses, or Jeffrey Dahmer who stored parts of his victim’s anatomy in his refrigerator.

Or maybe not.

Yum-Yum: Michelle O’s ‘Safe Snacking’ for Schoolchildren

michelle-obama-food-police-knows-betterOriginally posted at Clash Daily

The federal government, whose money has been known to finance what they call ‘healthy initiatives’ such as Planned Parenthood, on-campus public high-school health clinics, condom give-aways, and “Transgender Bisexual Gay Lesbian Awareness Day” functions in Connecticut high schools, are now officially banning junk food in schools and calling the injunction the “Smart Snacks in School” program.

It’s the government’s version of “Safe Sex” for snackers.

According to the USDA, sort of like Papal dispensation, “The new standards preserve flexibility for time-honored traditions like fundraisers and bake sales, and provide ample transition time for schools.” Still, what the decision could mean is that the cupcakes will be missing next to the balloons at the condom pick-up table. In addition, the post-abortion orange juice choices at the Planned Parenthood on-campus clinic will likely no longer be from concentrate, and as for gay pride events, humorous food choices like hot dogs and donuts will probably be a huge no-no.

In an article entitled The USDA Bans Junk Food From Schools, Effective This July, Danica Lo of Epicurious writes that starting in July the USDA will begin to “make the healthy choice the easy choice for America’s young people,” which means the Cass Sunstein-style “nudging” of school children will be strictly enforced.

Kids will be shoved toward foods that, without adult prodding, they’d normally spurn. Think of it as being away from your own mother but being unable to escape everybody’s big scowling mama, America’s self-appointed food maven Michelle, even at school.

According to new regulations being instituted by the USDA [Michelle Obama], junk food is now totally verboten — in school vending machines, stores, and lunchrooms. That means that fruits, veggies, whole grains, and dairy are good to go, while high-sodium, high-sugar, and high-fat foods are not.

What the ramifications are for being found with a white flour pretzel, a sharia-compliant Cadbury egg, or a 3.5-gallon drum of Popcornopolis on school property is still unclear. If a kid loses his head and shows up with a bag of “melt in your mouth not in your hand” contraband, will the same jackbooted group that surrounded the Brady ranch in Nevada be prepared to surround the 100,000+ public schools that receive federal funding for the National School Lunch Program?

Probably not. However, daredevil candy dealers being surrounded by cafeteria ladies for detention and being forced to peel garbage cans-full of carrots to make carrot sticks might be a deterrent. If that doesn’t work, type-II Diabetes candidates being threatened with going classroom-to-classroom dressed as a politically-correct tomatillo and showing the USDA “Smart Snacks in Schools” guideline “short, simple to understand” video that explains the 230+ page rule book on school snacks might curtail criminal behavior.

The problem the feds may run into is that there are online step-by-step guides on how to sneak anything into school. There are tutorials on how to get handheld video games, iPhones, and candy-flavored e-Cigarettes past parents, out of the house, and through school security.

Schoolchildren have become adept at slipping illegal drugs, inhalants, and date rape drugs into schools. High school kids even soak gummy bears in vodka to snack on during English class. There’s also a video that illustrates how deadly weapons can be stashed in your baggy pants.

That’s why, if it’s impossible to keep drugs, alcohol, and dangerous weaponry out of public schools, how is the US government supposed to prevent bags of Skittles concealed in adipose tissue, shoved into backpacks, and crammed into body cavities from infiltrating America’s schools?

Gay and Lesbian Segregated Old Age Home and Cemetery

LesBerlinAbstrOriginally posted at American Thinker blog

The LGTB community is incessantly demanding that they not be discriminated against based on their sexual preference and/or identity, and then, European LGTB types go and designate an old-age home for gays and lesbians due to open in 2015, and burial grounds expressly for lesbians only. 

For gramps and granny who, out of fear of rejection, have hidden their sexuality throughout their lives, Spain has converted an old hotel in Madrid into a hostel for elderly homosexuals. Residents may not be able to stand up straight enough to hang their gay pride t-shirt in the closet, but at least the old codgers can feel free to come out of the closet, with or without that t-shirt on.

Boti García, president of Spain’s LGTB Federation, said “When people think of LGTB people, they think of young people. There’s a tendency, as there is in society as a whole, to leave out the elderly” — ergo, the need for an old-homosexuals home, a residence where people with false teeth, closets full of Depends, and doddering thought processes can freely express long-suppressed passions and fiery sexuality.

Federico Armenteros of 26 December Foundation, a Spanish organization for the LGTB society, said that anyone is welcome regardless of sexual preference. “We’re not going to ask you who you sleep with when you apply,” he said, “Anyone can come, the only thing to bear in mind is that [the home] specializes in elderly LGTBs.” 

Armenteros did not elaborate upon what ‘specializing in elderly LGTBs’ actually means. Moreover, how many elderly gay and lesbian people have been turned away from senior housing for participating in the Sexy Senior Citizen portion of the gay pride parade?

Armenteros claims old people are not tolerant of gays and lesbians, and as result, in old age many homosexuals retreat back into the closet for safekeeping, especially if living in a home, where apparently some residents are more interested in sexual escapades than they are in being on time for dinner or winning an extra dessert at Bingo.

According to Mr. Armenteros, LGTBs “don’t have children and grandchildren they can talk about and often they conceal their sexual orientation to avoid rejection.” Conceal it from whom, those who can’t even remember their own names, let alone that they have grandchildren?

In addition to the old-age home, 26 December is also opening a civic center for the LGTB community in the Lavapiés neighborhood, which will offer gay/lesbian/LGTB painting classes, physiotherapy, and gym, among other gay-ish activities.

Whether gay or straight, “Neither the center nor the home will be places to park old people,” said Armenteros, “We want elderly people to feel useful, that they have a good time and feel at home.”  

After the gays and lesbians “have a good time and feel at home” with likeminded tenants and it’s time to depart the LGTB old-age home for that big asexual party in the sky, for those lesbians who would feel uncomfortable having their coffin stacked atop some sweaty, macho guy, there’s now a lesbian-only two-century-old cemetery opening in Berlin, Germany.

According to Dr. Astrid Osterlund, a spokeswoman for the Safia association, a national group established to support ageing lesbians, in the Lutheran Georgen Parochial cemetery, established in 1814 and located in central Berlin, 80 lesbians can vie to take a dirt nap as a community.  Why lesbians need their own cemetery is almost as perplexing as dementia-addled gay people needing specially designated living quarters.

Framed by oak, birch and yew trees, the burial ground, formerly overrun with weeds and strewn with toppled headstones, is a 400 square-meter (4,300 square-feet) area that, thanks to future residents, now has winding sand paths, space for cremation urns, and burial plots.  According to Safia, the “her-storic” burial ground establishes a space where, as Osterlund says, “life and death connect, distinctive forms of cemetery culture can develop and where the lesbian community can live together in the afterlife.” 

“Her-storic”…cemetery culture…the lesbian community living together in the afterlife?  So much for “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Clearly, unlike Christianity, Lesbianism adheres to far different life-after-death tenets.

Proving how clueless the proprietors of the Lutheran cemetery are, in an effort to “revitalize its cemetery grounds by cooperating with other groups,” cemetery spokesperson Volker Jastrzembski said, “We are also in an ongoing discussion with Muslim groups to see whether they can have their own plots on our cemeteries.”

Now there’s the perfect way to get Muslims to revitalize a deteriorating graveyard: Propose that if they agree to clean, landscape, and maintain the gravesites they can have free plots for 30 years.  The kicker is they’ll have to be buried in close proximity to 80 dead lesbians.

Either way, the Lesbian and Gay Association of Berlin welcomed the opening of the segregated cemetery. Spokesman Joerg Steinert feels the bone yard “increases the diversity of opportunities and is a nice opportunity for those lesbian women who want to be buried among other lesbians.”

So there you have it — a bunch of crinkly deaf daughters of Bilitis and crotchety old queers with false teeth, congestive heart failure, senile dementia, and parts that haven’t worked in years, fearlessly living out their sexuality in Spain among likeminded libidos.  And at least for the ladies, if they die whilst living the dream, over in Germany there is a “diversity of [post-mortem] opportunities,” one of which is to be buried with 79 other dearly-departed lesbians.

Clash Daily Recap: Michelle Obama’s ‘Excellent Chinese Adventure’

Obama-400x315Originally posted at The Clash Daily

The first lady, Grandma Marian, a 70-person entourage, and two hormonal teenagers who’d rather have spent their spring break anywhere else but participating in Great Wall photo ops with Mom, spent approximately $3 million just to fly to Beijing China for a non-political visit with a distinctly political undercurrent.

Despite 24-hour butler service and seven days in the $8,400-a-night, 3,445 square foot, Jinmao Presidential Suite in the Bejing Westin, the Asian getaway got off to a rocky start when Grandma Marian began “barking” orders at the hotel staff.

After calming Granny down, Mrs. Obama took time to meet with China’s fetching steel drum-playing first lady Peng Liyuan and her husband Xi Jinping who, when not showering Michelle Obama with compliments, is busy amassing a huge army and aligning himself with Barack’s arch-nemesis Vladimir Putin.

The Obama contingent visited and brought their unique brand of abnormal to Beijing’s Normal School, toured the Forbidden City, took in a performance, and dined with Peng Liyun.

The first lady went all the way to China to participate in a virtual discussion with American youth about connecting with students around the world – except students in China, where Internet access and social media sites are censored.

Michelle got to visit Beijing’s Summer Place. Not her annual Martha’s Vineyard “summer place”, but Yuan Ming Yuan (the Gardens of Perfect Brightness). Then she met with American staff and family and kissed drooling babies at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and the United States Consulate in Chengdu.

Reigning as supreme first lady of a nation that ranks #36 in academic achievement, Michelle felt qualified to participate in an educational roundtable where she lectured Chinese school children, who are #1 in the world in reading, math, and science, about the importance of getting a good education.

Michelle, first lady of a nation whose husband, the president, flouts the Constitution and crushes the First Amendment, also felt qualified to lecture an audience at Peking University. Those students would be thrown in prison or shot if they took Michelle’s message to heart and protested for the “universal right” to freedom of speech, religion, and access to the Internet, all of which are gradually fading away in the U.S.

Michelle also found time to complain about her tough childhood to children who often have only rice to eat and whose parents are lucky to be earning $10,000 in American dollars per year.

Then Mrs. Obama attempted to convince No. 7 High School children who live under Communist oppression that if they excel in their studies, which they already do, they could grow up to be another Lebron James, Janelle Monáe Robinson (no relation to Michelle LaVaughn Robinson), or President of the United States!

Taxpayers should be glad to spend millions of dollars for Mrs. Obama to jump rope, play Ping-Pong, practice tai chi in a dress and kitten heels, and wave red ribbons around. Not to mention footing the bill for the girls to visit ancient tourist sites like the Xi’an City Wall and the Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses.

At the museum Sasha Obama looked bored to death and Michelle grimaced a lot too, probably because the first lady was disappointed to learn that terra cotta is not some kind of exotic Chinese dessert.

On her last day in China, Mrs. Obama, Grandma, Sasha, and Malia stood up for Tibetan minorities by watching pandas eat bamboo at the Chengdu Panda Base and by drinking yak butter tea and eating boiled yak ribs in Zangxiang Teahouse in Chengdu, China. For that event, there were no close-up pictures of Sasha’s expression or reports that anyone yakked during the yak luncheon.

After lunch, Mrs. Obama, her entourage, Grandma, Malia, and a very relieved Sasha went straight to the airport, climbed aboard the same plane that ferried them to China, and blew another $3 million flying home.

Our Future President? ‘Acts of Love’ and Other Illegal Activities

jebOriginally posted at The Clash Daily

Bank robbers, kidnappers, and rapists rejoice! There’s a new definition for criminal behavior, and it’s called an “act of love”.  Ergo, robbing a bank is an “act of love” for someone else’s money.  Kidnapping a child? Don’t fret; it’s just an “act of love” for someone else’s child.  As for rape, why not dumb it down to an “act of love” for someone else’s body? If you burglarize a house or carjack someone, why, that’s just an “act of love” for other people’s stuff.

This new definition has been provided compliments of former Florida governor and present member of the Bush Dynasty, Jeb Bush, who said that the illegal immigrants who sneak into our sovereign nation, build underground railroads, throw rocks at and try to out-race border agents to bust into the United States and then proceed to misuse and abuse the system, only do these things as an “act of love”.

At an event celebrating the 25th anniversary of his father’s presidency at the George H.W. Bush Library and museum, Jeb thought he’d share some deep insights. First he said, “There are means by which we can control our border better than we have. And there should be penalties for breaking the law,” although currently, for all intents and purposes, there are not.

Family advocate and potential 2016 presidential hopeful Jeb Bush argued:

But the way I look at this … is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally, they come to our country because their families — the dad who loved their children — was worried that their children didn’t have food on the table. And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family.

The rationale behind that statement seems to be that Mom and the kids sneak over the border and Dad stays behind in, let’s say, Mexico, and then when Mom and the kids get here and start to bilk the system, Dad suddenly gets worried and sneaks over too to make sure the family has enough to eat.

So according to Jeb Bush, concern over hungry children and intact families justifies illegal behavior, and the excuse of “no other means to work to be able to provide for [a] family” now justifies breaking the law.  If that’s true then if a man has “no other means to…be able to provide for [his] family,” armed robbery shouldn’t be a punishable crime.

Moreover, maybe some of the illegal immigrants, who comprise 30% of the federal, state, and local prison populations and cost the American taxpayer more than $1.6 billion annually, are just fathers concerned about the welfare of their families.

Either way, sounding like a moral relativist on steroids, Jeb then said:

Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.

If Jeb, God forbid, should make it to the White House, judging from that statement criminal mischief and misdemeanors will no longer be considered criminal behavior – only felonies, and even then only some felonies.  And apparently those felonies will be separated, categorized, and penalized based on how Bush III ‘”feels about things”.

For instance, people overstaying visas get the polite Bush Boot, because according to Jeb, “A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave.”

Mr. Bush is of the persuasion that pursuing criminals, er… I mean folks who overstay visas “would restore people’s confidence” in the nation’s immigration system, even though 30 million are still here and 7,000 are crossing over the border every day.  Let’s face it – that number, which is likely a conservative figure, is a whole heck of a lot of concerned fathers seeking out their familia.

In other words, apply for a visa, overstay the visa, and you’re outta here.  Sneak in, and you can stay indefinitely!

So to sum up, if a person from another country wants to come to America and gets caught after coming here illegally and defrauding US taxpayers for years, let’s hope Jeb Bush is president. Then, to avoid prosecution, be allowed to stay, and get rewarded with a lifetime of free benefits, all you have to say (in very broken English, of course) is:  “I am a concerned padre. I love my niños.  I want to make sure there is comida on their tabla.  Is my familia ‘intacto‘?  I come here proveer para my children.”

And you’re good to go!

Abortion ‘the defining challenge of our time’

There’s an old saying that parents used to recite to whiny kids that went something like this: “I don’t care if the Pope said you could do it, you’re not doing it.” Those words are what came to mind seeing Obama and Pope Francis warmly smiling at each other, surrounded by grinning Vatican representatives.

Based on President Obama’s stance on social issues, Pope Francis should have acted like Pius XII during World War II who said conciliation with ”an untrustworthy scoundrel” was “out of the question,” but since he chose otherwise, during the 52-minute audience the discussion should have involved a firm rebuke by the pope for the brutality against the unborn that this pro-abortion president fully supports.

If the Pope didn’t harshly renounce Obama’s fondness for abortion, it’s likely the president came away from his Vatican meeting believing that Francis’s approachable demeanor implicitly granted the go-ahead to continue with his radical social agenda.

As for issues that the two men do agree on, what we know is that Obama is concerned about income inequality, which he calls “the defining challenge of our time,” and Francis is concerned with what he calls the “predicament of the underprivileged.”

As it always has, global poverty looms large, but in God’s economy it is birthright inequality that is truly the “defining challenge of our time.” And while poverty is cruel, abortion is much worse and more preventable than the difficulty of those even Jesus told us would always be with us.

Thus, the prospect of eliminating poverty is a pointless endeavor.

Many would argue that choosing between poverty and abortion is not an either-or, which is true. However, placing emphasis on the gap between the rich and the poor can obscure an issue more pressing than the need to level the playing field on a planet where the silent screams of aborted babies drown out the giggles of children at play.

As for the Bishop of Rome, the stain of sin upon a nation and a world that slaughters the unborn should always be more important than the economic standing of the living.  What is a bit worrisome is that Francis has suggested that for him, the “plight of the poor” provides a way to prevent overemphasis on social issues like abortion and gay marriage.

All the same, it is alleged that the Pope did broach the topics of abortion, religious freedom, and birth control with Obama.  And well he should have, but the grinning camaraderie after the meeting calls into question the severity of the Pope’s rebuke.

Irrespective of what Francis said or chose not to say, classic Obama would be for the morally-relativistic president to believe that socialist intentions lessen the offense of approving of and providing funding for the slaughter of the world’s unborn.

After all, Jorge Mario Bergoglio did offer sinners ‘indulgences’ and ‘time off in purgatory’ if on Youth Day they follow him on Twitter.  So if Obama is hip to the ‘indulgence’ arrangement, there’s a good chance he could leave his one-on-one with the pontiff convinced that it’s possible to inch one’s way out of the sulfur pit by sharing the wealth.

And while there is no denying the tragedy of “At least 80% of humanity [living] on less than $10 a day” – as does Barack Obama’s Kenyan half-brother George – what’s sadder still is to deny life to a child who could be happy even if consigned to live life on less than $10 a day.

According to UNICEF, poverty is responsible for 22,000 children dying daily. Worse yet, worldwide, one child loses its life to abortion every two seconds, which totals 40-50 million dead babies a year. Since Roe v. Wade was instituted in 1973, 1.72 billion abortions have taken place globally.

And as Obama and Francis contemplated the plague of poverty’s injustice toward “the least of these,” ‘the least-est of the least,’ who were deprived a chance to fight their way out of the womb or live a life dedicated to eradicating what Francis calls the “predicament of the underprivileged,” were being incinerated to provide heat for UK hospitals.

Nonetheless, the world’s needy were the primary topic of the pope and the president’s talk, at least perhaps Francis got to address the dichotomy of Obama, who, while claiming to consider income inequality “the defining challenge of our time,” seemed fine with Michelle indulging in a multi-million dollar sightseeing tour of China and staying in an $8,400 per-night hotel suite in a country where people live in abject poverty and forced abortions are commonplace.

From one-child China it would have been a hop, skip, and a jump for the pontiff to ask the pro-abortion president, who claims he and Francis discussed the “role of empathy in public and private life,” where the empathy is in his wife lunching on yak soup and butter tea on behalf of Tibetan minorities in Zangxiang Teahouse in Chengdu, China, while in America the cries of aborted minority babies reach heavenward to God?

That’s why it looks as if God may have showed up at the Vatican to send Obama a not-so-subtle message of His own.

Ironically, after the pope and the president’s private audience, Barack gave Francis a handmade wooden chest full of fruit and vegetable seeds. The seeds, which are symbolic of life, came from the White House garden.  Francis’s gift to Obama was a copy of Evangelii Gaudium, otherwise known as “The Joy of the Gospel,” which the president promised he would read, and we know how reliable Obama’s promises are.

Nonetheless, as the genial gift-giving portion of the visit was taking place, the seed chest, which was rather precariously balanced on metal stilts, toppled over.

Francis’s admirer claimed he was “incredibly moved” by his audience with “His Holiness,” but what is really incredibly moving is the message sent when the chest of seeds representing the gift of life Barack Obama denies the unborn came crashing to the ground.

Can Obama Coax Putin With a Basket of Seeds?

seed basketOriginally posted at American Thinker blog

Still in Rome, after discussing with the Pope “the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection” in America, and after yessing to death the man he claims to admire, Obama moved on to the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley.

The president stressed to Mr. Pelley that Russia, meaning Vladimir Putin, who recently took steps toward reintegrating Crimea back into the Russian Federation, must take steps to reduce tensions with the Ukraine.

“Must” as in ‘he’d better take steps?’

Obama also informed Pelley that military exercises are not what “Russia would normally be doing,” and who would know better than Barack Obama what Russia would “normally be doing?”  Providing some detail, Obama said that Vladimir’s actions “may simply be an effort to intimidate Ukraine or it may be that they’ve got additional plans.”

Then, via the CBS Evening News, the president offered a stern warning to Mr. Putin who, God knows, hangs on Obama’s every word. This was the president’s advice: “Move back those troops and begin negotiations directly with the Ukrainian government, as well as the international community.”

Obama should be more understanding of Mr. Putin, because other than their pectoral muscles, testosterone levels, and post-election “flexibility,” these two men are really quite similar.

For example, Obama told Scott Pelley that Putin considered the breakup of the Soviet Union “tragic,” which is how Obama would feel about the repeal of Obamacare – “tragic.”

Think about it: former KGB officer Vladimir is as dedicated to reestablishing the Soviet Union as Barack is to establishing a socialist-style healthcare system almost nobody wants. Moreover, deeply-held grievances are what drive Barack Obama to ‘fundamentally transform’ America into the Soviet Union while, according to Obama, Vladimir’s aggression suggests “a deeply held grievance about what he considers to be the loss of the Soviet Union.”

Belying his foreign policy expertise, a glimmer of naiveté did emerge when tough-guy Obama verbalized his profound confidence in the goodness of humanity:

You would have thought that after a couple of decades that there’d be an awareness on the part of any Russian leader that the path forward is not to revert back to the kinds of practices that, you know, were so prevalent during the Cold War but, in fact, to move forward with further integration with the world economy and to be a responsible international citizen.

Apparently, the president’s liberal fantasy is that a diehard USSR KGB officer would mellow with time, gain New Age “awareness,” and progress merrily along “the path forward” toward “further integration with the world economy” and become a responsible world citizen like Barack claims to be.

obama_unicorn_rainbowsFor a second there, after hearing his thoughts on how Putin should have evolved, one couldn’t help but look around to see where Obama parked his unicorn.

Then, putting on his psychoanalyst hat, Sigmund Obama offered the following carefully-worded, vaguely anti-American rationale as to why Putin, who probably understands Barack Obama better than Barack Obama understands himself, may be planning to invade the Ukraine: “There’s a strong sense of Russian nationalism and a sense that somehow the West has taken advantage of Russia in the past and that he wants to, in some fashion, reverse that or make up for that.”

The in-depth analysis continued: “What I have repeatedly said is that [Mr. Putin] may be entirely misreading the West. He’s certainly misreading American foreign policy.”

Oh no he’s not! Pootie-Poot Putin isn’t misreading anything.  He knows full well he’s dealing with the wimpiest of America’s ‘Wimpy Kids.’

In fairness, Barry’s Irish did flare a bit when he said:

And it is true that we reject the notion that there is a sphere of influence along the Russian border that then justifies Russia invading other countries…But there’s a difference between that and sending in troops, and because you’re bigger and stronger taking a piece of the country – that is not how international law and international norms are observed in the 21st century.

But wait!  Isn’t that how the IRS, DHS and the NSA work in 21st century America? So why not in Russia?

Finishing up with the Putin topic, the president stressed that, in much the same way he’s encouraged the American people to make their own decisions about how they live their lives (ahem), America has no interest in “in Ukraine beyond letting the Ukrainian people make their own decisions about their own lives.”

Nevertheless, according to Scott Pelley, wide-ranging international denunciation of Russia’s invasion of Crimea has “lifted the president’s confidence,” and everyone knows that lifting Obama’s confidence, much like speaking to the universe and barking at the moon, brings communist invaders to their knees.

But if diplomacy, lifted confidence, and sanctions fail to work, as a last resort Obama could always put together another gift basket full of White House garden vegetable seeds and use it to persuade vegetable lover Vladimir Putin to pull his troops off the Ukrainian border.

Seeds or no seeds, judging from the interview, Barack Obama seems convinced that he possesses the moral authority to censure Vladimir Putin for exercising control in a Russian “sphere of influence.” Meanwhile, within what he perceives to be his own “sphere of influence,” Obama continues crossing the border into American lives.

This Year’s Margaret Sanger Award Goes to Nancy Pelosi

sanger-toomanyabortedOriginally posted at American Thinker

Any woman willing to call late-term abortion “sacred ground” and make false accusations that the opposing political party voting for the Protect Life Act would leave pregnant women “dying on the floor” deserves an award named after someone as demonically-inspired as eugenicist Margaret Sanger, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is that woman.

Pelosi is scheduled to deliver remarks at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s “Stronger Together” Annual Gala in Washington DC Thursday.  The PPFA gala is where abortion activists gather annually over fruit salad and popovers to celebrate the right to dispose of living human beings. 

According to Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, “in recognition of her leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement over the course of her career,” Nancy Pelosi will be given the Margaret Sanger Award, which Planned Parenthood considers its “highest honor.”

Cecile Richards, who defines baby-killing as healthcare, is the woman who, during a recent interview with Jorge Ramos on the Fusion TV Network, expressed the opinion that the question of when life begins is not relevant to the abortion debate. 

What an honor this will be for Nancy to be recognized as the latest heroine of the abortion mill that slaughtered 327,166 human beings in 2012 alone, and whose annual recognition represents the ideals and values of Margaret Sanger, a self-proclaimed feminist who was ahead of her time as she attempted to contribute to humanity through fostering racial hatred and genocide. 

A committed socialist, Margaret Sanger once said, “My own personal feelings drew me toward the individualist, anarchist philosophy…but it seemed necessary to approach the idea by way of Socialism.”  Sanger said:

This is the great day of social planning. We have come to believe in planning the production and distribution of goods. We plan methods of governing cities, states, and the nation. We plan jobs, and leisure-time activities, and vacations. We plan almost everything, big and little, except families. It can scarcely do any harm and it may do a vast amount of good to engage in thoughtful, planning of our population, a population with a still larger percentage of happy families.

Sound familiar?

An active worker for the Socialist Party, Sanger believed “the more radical the ideas the more conservative you must be in your dress.” Think: community organizer Barack Obama, who, per Saul Alinsky, “dresses his crusades in vestments of morality,” and Nancy Pelosi, who lobbies for abortion rights and then receives communion at St. Vincent de Paul’s in San Francisco.

As a practicing Catholic, Nancy can step right up with pride and accept accolades in the form of an award with a woman’s name on it whose view of the Catholic Church’s teaching on contraception was that church doctrine “…enforces subjugation by turning [a] woman into a mere incubator.”

For Margaret Sanger, eugenics was an avenue to improve the human race by discouraging people with genetic defects or undesirable traits, blacks, immigrants and poor people, whom she called “human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning…human beings who never should have been born.”

Now wait just a minute! Does it matter that this year’s Margaret Sanger Award winner is all for granting amnesty to “human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning…human beings who never should have been born?”

Another irony is that Italian-American Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi, who believes deporting illegal immigrants is “just wrong,” had grandparents named Maria and Tommaso who immigrated to America from Italy. If Margaret Sanger had had her eugenic way with Maria Foppiani-Petronilla, Mrs. Pelosi wouldn’t be here, let alone receiving an award.

In February 1919 in The Birth Control Review, the prolific Sanger published an article entitledBirth Control and Racial Betterment.” That means, besides Nancy Pelosi, there’s another politician who supports improving the human race through free birth control and an abortion clinic on every corner: our very own mixed-race President Barack Obama, who would probably also be amongst those of the black race Margaret Sanger deemed unfit to be born.

In 1934, Sanger wrote an article entitled “America Needs a Code for Babies: Plea for Equal Distribution of Births.” Mrs. Sanger’s ‘baby code’ said that people with “bad genes,” or dysgenic groups, should be given a choice between sterilization and segregation.  Those who willingly chose sterilization would be rewarded for contributing to a superior race.

In Article 6, Sanger suggested issuing parenthood permits that would be valid for no more than one birth.

One birth! Paul Pelosi subjugated this year’s Margaret Sanger Award winner into agreeing to gestate five children in her incubator.  Then poor Nancy passed through the “vale of death alone” and gave birth to five of Paul’s children without a single Margaret Sanger parenthood permission slip. For those five reasons alone, Nancy Pelosi should be disqualified from receiving any praise from Planned Parenthood. 

Despite being lionized by socialist liberals, Margaret “every child a wanted child” Sanger’s legacy is one of murder, racism, revulsion for the handicapped, intrinsic disgust for the male gender, and a form of twisted radicalism that viewed God-ordained marriage and the miracle of life with contempt.

Sanger met her maker in 1966. At 82 years of age, history’s most famous female eugenicist went the way of the most famous male eugenicist, and all the innocent babies she lobbied to eliminate before her. 

Yet the diabolical activities that she lived and died and ultimately had to answer for have continued to this day, to the extent that almost half a century later the likes of Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi view it as a compliment to receive a Planned Parenthood prize in memory of a so-called birth control pioneer.

Margaret Sanger’s pathetic life was committed to curing what she viewed as the “urgent problem” of how to “limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.” Nancy Pelosi accepting an award associated with the vile woman who inspired Planned Parenthood confirms, at least in this particular case, that mental deficiency really does impact society in a negative way.

Cuba, Anyone? A Bright Future for American Doctors

cuba docsOriginally posted at The Clash Daily

If ever there was a warning of what horrors lie ahead for our healthcare system, Cuba’s decision to give raises to their medical personnel is a sobering look into a future where America’s private physicians are downgraded to government employees.

In a vacation spot frequented by the likes of billionaires Jay-Z and Beyoncé, to promote “fairness” Cuba does benevolent things like ration food and medicine, pay government workers a share-the-wealth salary that averages about $20 per month, and, for their services, provides doctors with free housing and food subsidies.

Now, Cuba’s Communist Party daily newspaper Granma is reporting that Cuba “expects to take in $8.2 billion this year for the tens of thousands of medical workers it sends to care for the poor in countries such as Venezuela and Brazil.” In turn Cuba will reward health workers with raises that, in some cases, surpass a 100% increase.

Thanks to that infusion of money, as well as an “elimination of 109,000 redundant jobs in the last four years,” a cost-cutting effort that, quite frankly, the US federal government should attempt, 440,000 Cuban medical sector employees, also known as those without a “vested interest in disease,” will soon be rolling in the big bucks.

That should inspire the top 1% types here in America to encourage their children to pursue medicine as a career.

This is the pay scale our future doctors and nurses can look forward to if Barack Obama continues to have his way: Cuban doctors with two specialties such as hematologist/oncologists will see their salary go from the equivalent of $26 a month to $67, or $2.23 per day. For entry-level nurses, woo-hoo, the pay will jump up from $13 to a whopping $25 per month.

According Health Minister Roberto Morales, even double pay is still a small fraction of what Cuba collects from the 66 nations where 50,000 Cuban healthcare professionals work.

Nevertheless, one of those lucky winners of life’s lottery, 62-year-old nurse, Soraida Pina, is over the moon with excitement over the impending influx of extra cash. Sounding like a Cuban version of Warren Buffett, Soraida had this to say: “This is very good news that makes me tremendously happy. … With my first paycheck I’m going to buy a toy for my youngest grandson, who’s three.”

A toy for a grandson is a tad extravagant, but maybe just this once nurse Pina can splurge without the National Revolutionary Police Force addressing her unwillingness to share.

Don’t be fooled by the scarcity that permeates the socialist stronghold; while its people are poor, Cuba is a rich nation that, despite the impressive pay hikes and supposed economic changes, maintains a socialist system that is “irrevocable.

That’s why Laura Vazquez, a 38-year-old pathologist, isn’t all that impressed with the news, because in the beautiful socialist paradise that is Cuba, the salaries are low and the cost of living remains high. “They had talked to us about this,” she said, “and it’s very important for the family economy, but it continues to be a salary that means very little because everything is very expensive.”

It’s not “very expensive” Laura, it’s just central planning’s effort to keep the Cuban people grateful for things like the limited availability of rationed goods.

With that in mind, Dr. Laura should just be thankful that healthcare professionals assigned to international missions to countries like Venezuela, a nation that supplies Cuba with 92,000 barrels of oil a day (which can be exchanged for hard currency), are paid double.

Meanwhile, here in America, with the Castro brothers’ secret admirer ‘fundamentally transforming” the US healthcare system, it’s not implausible that American doctors will one day be demoted to government workers too.

That’s why all the medical professionals and future medical professionals who favored Obamacare should be relieved to know that when they voted for Barack Obama they also voted for a future salary of about $67 a month.

Larb Gai and ‘Conscious Uncouplings’

article-2589383-1C94A63F00000578-64_636x382-610x366After 10 years, all of which were likely grueling for the lead singer of Coldplay, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are splitting up.  The fact that they are splitting proves that Gwyneth may be an authority on vintage Michael Kors and Parisian concierge service, but apparently she knows zilch, zero, nada about how to keep a marriage together.

Now, in an effort to seem deeply spiritual and New Age-y, Gwyneth and Chris have taken to the Goop.com website to announce their amicable split, calling it a “Conscious Uncoupling.”

“Conscious Uncoupling?” Versus what, an “Unconscious Coupling?” The latter sounds more like a drunk couple’s wedding night than an explanation for an obnoxious, spoiled rich kid’s divorce announcement.

God help us all!  For the last 15 years or so, we’ve all been subjected to every one of little Gwynny’s trials, tribulations, fads, and endeavors to reduce boredom.  She’s like a seven-year-old girl who inflicts herself on her parents’ dinner guests by subjecting them to a half-hour of out-of-tune songs and tap dancing in a tutu.  The problem is that the soon-to-be ex-Mrs. Martin is now a grown woman with two children.

In addition, Paltrow’s father Bruce is deceased, and if you listen real closely, lately mom Blythe Danner is the only one clapping.

Gwyneth the Goop Girl has tortured America by affecting an occasional fake British lilt.  Harvey Weinstein drooled all over her, calling Paltrow his Shakespeare in Love muse.  After that she ventured into country singing, traveled to Spain on a cooking tour with Mario Batali, married a rock star, laid on a baby grand piano singing “Forget You” with CeeLo Green, sang “Happy” on Glee, doled out mothering and child-nutrition tips, wrote cookbooks, became best friends and then not best friends with Madonna, Beyoncé, and Cameron Diaz, and just recently bragged that at 41 she has the butt of a 22-year-old stripper!

Seriously Gwyneth, like, who gives a rat’s patootie?

Someone should inform Gwyn that no one really cares what she is thinking or doing. If there was a picture in the dictionary for “legend in one’s own mind,” it would be Gwyneth Paltrow’s.

On her relationship with the father of children Apple and Moses, both of whom victims of the ‘uncoupling’ of their father and mostly their self-consumed mother, in 2011 Gwyneth told Elle magazine:

Sometimes it’s hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren’t all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what’s going to happen. If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children. Like, I made such a good choice. He’s such a good dad. You can never be relaxed or smug and think, ‘I’ve got this thing.’ That’s also part of it: keeping yourself on your toes. I’m not going to take this for granted.

So, “[i]t’s hard being with someone for a long time… life is long and you never know what’s going to happen?” Okey-dokey.

Anyway, the reason that Chris ‘He Likes Privacy’ Martin and Gwyneth ‘My Favorite Sex Position’ Paltrow are splitting is anyone’s guess.

There’s that Vanity Fair brouhaha and rumors that Paltrow has taken a lover or two, or maybe it’s not even that complicated. Gwyneth could have merely gotten bored to tears with Chris, and just as she’s moved on from writing cookbooks like “It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look and Feel Great,” now she’s into ‘It’s Not All That Good: Conscious Uncouplings That Will Make You Feel Horrible.’
