Hillary Clinton’s Abortion Quagmire

196334_5_Originally posted at American Thinker

It’s hard to believe but ‘for the first time in her adult life,’ when Hillary Clinton referred to a preborn human being as an “unborn person” or “child,” the woman who’s made prevarication a lifestyle choice actually spoke the truth.  The problem for Sir Edmund Hillary’s purported namesake is that truth telling is something she usually dodges like sniper bullets in Bosnia because of the potential that facts have to get her in trouble.

And trouble is exactly what followed when Hillary attempted to counter Donald Trump by trying to portray herself as the champion of abortion rights.

While being interviewed on NBC’s Meet the Press, Hillary responded to Chuck Todd’s question about the constitutional rights of the unborn by saying that “the unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.”  The problem with the former first lady’s answer was that while trying to deny unborn personhood she inadvertently assigned personhood to an entity the pro-choice movement views as a nonviable clump of cells.

And so, it seems that while straddling the abortion fence, Mrs. Clinton got her designer pants leg stuck on a big old rusty nail.  Of all people, Hillary should know by now that in pro-choice circles admitting preborn humanity portrays the slaughter of 3,000 babies a day in a distasteful light.

Then, Mrs. Clinton, who, when not getting $600 haircuts spends time rustling up votes by rubbing her pregnant daughter Chelsea’s belly like it was Aladdin’s lamp, went on to talk about the constitutional rights of “unborn persons” whose mothers opt not to abort:

Now that doesn’t mean that we don’t do everything we possibly can in the vast majority of instances to, you know, help a mother who is carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate medical support.

So, after saying that an “unborn person” has no right to life or protection under the Constitution, Hillary awkwardly attempted to reassure women who choose to allow offspring to breathe outside the womb that the “unborn person” she just said had no protection will be protected under the law.

Talk about a quagmire.

Nonetheless, Hillary wants America to know that if she ends up in charge, and if a mother chooses not to exercise the right to legally murder her offspring, the law that Hillary claims doesn’t protect an “unborn person’s” life, will be enforced to protect the “unborn person’s” life.

Then, with Chelsea’s swollen third-trimester belly as her muse, Hillary burrowed herself in deeper when she said, “there is room for reasonable kinds of restrictions” in the third trimester of pregnancy.

What? The woman who heartily supports partial birth abortion blurted out, clearly without thinking, that, on occasion, it might be better to not insert scissors into the base of the skull of a living baby who is halfway out of the womb?

Huma really should have reminded Secretary Clinton beforehand that in baby extermination circles, even implying the word “restriction,” undermines the cause for abortion rights. That’s why, Diana Arellano, manager of community engagement for Planned Parenthood Illinois Action, quickly responded to Mrs. Clinton’s comments.

Diana probably didn’t like it either when the Planned Parenthood baby body part chop shop was called a baby body part chop shop, because Hillary labeling “unborn persons” as  “unborn persons” really got under the manager of community engagement’s skin.

Arellano tweeted this about Hillary Clinton: “she calls a fetus an ‘unborn child’ & calls for later term restrictions,” which, according to the Illinois Baby Chop Shop representative, “further stigmatizes #abortion.”

According to Arellano, butchering and then selling preborn infant liver doesn’t stigmatize abortion. In Diana’s opinion, what stigmatizes abortion is Hillary losing lip control and calling a child a child and then suggesting that murdering viable human beings should be restricted.

Now either unborn babies are non-persons and thus have no constitutional rights, or pre-birth existence does not negate personhood.  If the latter is true, that means Hillary Clinton and the whole pro-choice movement have put all our lives in danger by eroding a constitutional right that was established to protect all life.

In the meantime, Mrs. Clinton has really got to figure out how to talk her way out of the abortion chaos she’s gotten herself into. Maybe Mrs. Clinton should follow Donald Trump’s example and just make it up as she goes along.

Hillary can start by clarifying what choice is all about and explain that what she really meant to say was that women who decide to terminate a pregnancy have the right to choose whether the “unborn persons” they’re planning to destroy are “persons” or not.

In fact, this may be a real opportunity for Hillary to turn a faux pas into an excuse to break new ground on behalf of the right to choose crowd.  Mrs. Clinton can explain that if a woman chooses an abortion, only then is an “unborn person” considered a non-person.  But, if a woman chooses to carry to term and give birth, an otherwise non-person is then mysteriously granted “unborn person” status and is, hence, constitutionally protected.

Either way, this is the kind of misunderstanding that results when Hillary Clinton loses her bearings and the truth manages to slip out.  That’s why if the presidential hopeful wants to retain her faithful constituency, it might be best for her to continue to do what she does best, which is to keep lying.

Fibber McBiden on Larry King Lies

Why do kids lie is the question that presents itself while watching Joe Biden painfully misrepresent the facts 2 weeks ago on Larry King Live?  Like a smirking six year old Biden told, the suspendered one, lie after out-right-lie.  One couldn’t help but be bemused, perplexed and stunned as Biden, like a kid in a dirty nappy, verbally walked around as if no one noticed his lack of self-control.  Listening to Joe Biden chatter brought to mind child psychology courses that taught, “Kids as young as 3 — sometimes even 2 — will tell very simple lies, denying they’ve done something or in order to gain something for themselves.”

Pathological Joe Biden said,

I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.

Wasn’t it Biden and President Obama, who vigorously opposed the Iraq war?  Joe even recommended carving Iraq into three “fractious factions.”  In 2007, together with Barack Obama, Joe Biden expressed fervent opposition to the troop surge as Obama expressed fear of “worsening sectarian strife.”

Now three years later, and no thanks to Obama or Biden’s contributions to the war effort, the Bush/Cheney policy has proven successful.  In response, Joe is “denying something in order to gain something” and does so by spreading white lies. It turns out Mr. Biden is an aspersion articulator equaled only in prevarication proficiency by Barry.

As a smiling calumniating Biden continued talking to Larry, one couldn’t help but be reminded, “preschoolers’ tall tales can be pure play, or sometimes wishful thinking… it’s not unusual for young kids to insist… that their fantasy world is real.” Child psychologists maintain, “It’s not really a lie.  What your child indicates … are the tremendous colorfulness, prominence, and importance of imaginary friends.” That’s it; Joe was sharing colorful travel stories with imaginary friends about trips to Iraq.

I spent  — I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months — three months. I know every one of the major players in all the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.

Everyone knows liberals view themselves more compassionate, socially aware, and sensitive than their conservative political adversaries, which in Joe’s mind must make lying forgivable. Vice President Biden’s ability to tell lies to avoid hurting another person’s feelings “shows a bit of social awareness and sensitivity” on his part. According to psychologists, Biden might do this for “all sorts of understandable, even forgivable, reasons.” For example, Joe may be afraid of disappointing America or of the punishment he and Barry could suffer in the next election.  It could even be a stress response with both boys being “pressed beyond their capabilities” and all.

America should be kind before sending Joe “to his room or taking away his TV privileges for the day,” the nation should try hard to understand what drives the Vice President to lie, and “take his reasons into consideration.”

On Larry King, Biden stuck to the Obama administration “inherited” a bad economy story. As the unemployment rate dips to record lows Joe continued to perjure himself by claiming the stimulus package, “created or saved over two million jobs.”  Vice President Biden might as well have held up to the camera his kindergarten art project with glued macaroni and glitter and told big Daddy Larry, “This is my magic village.”

Biden contended “in the last year, from the day we came in…billions of dollars pushed into the economy [into] pockets.  [Americans] went out and spent that money for everything from a hair cut to helping pay for the electric bill.  And that has impact on economy.” In Joe’s fantasy world are unemployed Americans busy getting coiffed and paying electric bills for vacated homes in foreclosure?

Like a lying child planting wet kisses on a mother’s cheek, a glowing Cheshire smile enhanced Joe’s flagrant falsifications as America’s VP contended, “So a lot of it’s not seen and a lot of it’s misunderstood.”

It’s no secret Joe and his cohort Barry habitually lie.  Rather than being amused the nation should be alarmed because childhood denial, personal gain, imaginary friends and social sensitivity aside, chronic lying indicates the need for professional assistance to sort things out.

Take Joe’s taped interview for “Meet the Press” where Joe Rockin’ Robinette “unloaded on his predecessor” Dick Cheney one of the architects of the Iraq policy Obama/Biden now accepts recognition for. Then again CNNhealth.com featured article Why Kids Lie An Age-by-Age guide says, “children who are anxious, who feel that they can’t handle some kind of situation, may lie. It could be a sign of any number of stresses that the child is under. It could also be the sign of a smart kid who finds lying a convenient tactic” — which in this particular case, is highly unlikely.

Befuddled history rewriter and fact fabricator Biden, attempting to preempt the incoming scud missile Cheney was set to drop on “This Week,” told David Gregory, “Dick Cheney’s a fine fellow.  He’s entitled to his own opinion.  He’s not entitled to rewrite history. He’s not entitled to his own facts…What is he talking about?  I’m not being facetious.  Maybe he’s not fully informed of what’s going on…I don’t know where he has been.  Where was he the last four years of the last administration?”  Joe wants to know what Cheney’s talking about?

Over the last four years of the Bush/Cheney administration, while Joe Biden was busy getting hair plugs, having his teeth laminated and making outrageous statements, Dick Cheney was working hard to maintain national security in spite of Senator Biden and Obama’s resistance to sound policy.  The former vice president was curtailing terrorism and bringing peace and tranquility to Iraq with a troop surge Joe Biden initially pooh-poohed but now takes full credit for.

Why Kids Lie expert contributors and child psychologists agree the best way to steer a child toward honesty is to set a good example and “talk to him about how lying can damage credibility and relationships.” The article’s esteemed professionals concur with any luck, “chances are your child will grow out of fibbing – and into an honest-to-goodness adult.”  Unfortunately, with each passing day, it looks less and less hopeful either Joe Biden or “Barack America” possesses any hope of growing out of the well-practiced youthful habit of misrepresenting truth.
