If Democrats Had Their Way…

If Democrats Had Their Way…

Remember New Coke? It was a dismal failure and the company scrapped it. How about three slice toasters? They were supposed to be the rage once, too. But nobody bought them and they disappeared into the dustbin of history.

That’s how life works in the private sector. If people don’t buy and the product doesn’t deliver, it disappears. Companies and individuals are forced to develop winning strategies in order to survive. If not, they perish.

The policies of the Democratic Party are not like that. The policies of the Democratic Party — high taxes, exorbitant union contracts and pensions, excessive government regulation, gun control, dysfunctional schools, etc. — continue to produce one failed program after another, yet they are fully supported by an average of 52% of the voting public. If they operated in the private sector, they would be forced into bankruptcy. However, because they are funded by our tax dollars, they have a never-ending spigot of cash flowing into their coffers. In essence, they are rewarded for failing.

Detroit is a city that has been under complete Democratic control for over forty years. And when I say complete, I mean complete. Every official, every policy, every decision affecting Detroit has come 100% from the Democratic Party and their supporters. The result? Bankruptcy.

Detroit is $2.5 billion in debt. That’s billion, with a “b”. Thousands of homes, buildings, and businesses are vacant and abandoned, and two thirds of the city’s street lights do not work.

Detroit is America’s most dangerous city with a violent crime rate five times higher than the national average. It’s the murder capital of the country, and — because it’s under Democratic control — Detroit has strict gun control laws.

In short, Detroit is a hellhole. A man-made, Democratic-Party-created hellhole. And it’s exactly what all of America would look like if Democrats had their way.

Detroit is not an aberration. It is a direct result of Democratic leadership and how applying the principles of the Democratic Party actually play out in real life. It’s as simple as 1 + 1 = 2. You do this action, you get this result.

If Detroit shows all of us the natural consequence of what happens when the Democratic Party gets its way, why do people support it? Why do tens of millions of Americans continue to vote for Democrats? The answer, I believe, consists of five distinct elements within the Democratic Party.

In the first group are the hardcore socialists and communists that form the leadership and financial backing of the Democratic Party. These are the folks that actually hate America and want to destroy it. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2014/03/22/99549/). They are the corrupt union leaders, the financial donors, the advisors, the radical college professors and teachers, the leaders of various “equality” groups and causes, the militant feminists, the Islamic extremists, education officials and administrators, and the actual politicians themselves. I estimate their numbers to comprise 5% of less of the Democratic Party.

To this first group, Detroit is a shining example of how they would like all of America to be. Many of them are atheists, or outright satanists, and they hate not only America, but also Christianity, because they see Christians as the primary roadblock that keeps them from turning America into a Communist dictatorship. Death, murder, kidnapping, and rape mean nothing to them if it helps to accomplish their objective.

The second group is big business and union members. The majority of those in this group do not hate America, however they can develop intense hatred toward any individual or group that threatens their current financial status. They support the Democratic Party because it pays.

For big business, that means bailouts, favorable loans, taxpayer subsidies, and government regulation to create monopolies and eliminate competition. You know who I’m talking about: Hollywood, Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, GE, Wall Street, owners of professional sports teams, etc.

For union members, it means maintaining their high salaries, pensions, insurance, and paid holidays. You’ll find many teachers in this group. All together, this second group comprises about 20% of the Democratic Party. They vote for their own personal gain, regardless of how much it hurts their country or their fellow citizens.

The third group consists of the media. I estimate them to comprise 5% or less of the Democratic Party. Like the first group, many of them are hardcore socialists and communists who also hate America, but their hatred is cloaked with a thinly disguised intellectual disdain. They consider themselves smarter than everyone else. Though they are intelligent, they suffer from a total lack of wisdom. If their intellectual superiority is threatened, they can revert to most violent and animalistic of natures, all condoned through intellectual justification.

This third group — the media — do everything they can to obscure reality in order to confuse and indoctrinate the fourth group: Useful Idiots.

“Useful idiot” sounds like a harsh term, but it was actually coined by the Left to describe many of their followers. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/12/29/are-you-a-useful-idiot/)

It saddens me to say that I have many friends, acquaintances, and co-workers in this group. They are nice people. Many of them would give you the shirt of their back, or rush to your aid at the first sign of an emergency. Sadly, they just don’t know very much about history or politics.

Useful idiots have been dumbed down at school and at home. Now in their 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s, 60′s, and beyond, they continue to believe everything they’re told by the mainstream media. They have been exposed to alternate information only in the form of ridicule. Many of them are so busy working, earning a living, raising families, paying bills, and looking for love that they just don’t have time to read and educate themselves.

I was in the position of not having time to read myself until I was laid off a couple of years ago and actually had time to research what was happening in the country. That’s when I discovered this site, Commieblaster, Moral Matters, and many more.

In this group you will also find many females who have been taught to accept abortion and feminism, and many males who accept abortion and feminism as a means to seduce and sleep with the aforementioned females. (See http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/11/15/an-open-letter-to-obama-supporters/) I estimate useful idiots to comprise a full 40% of the Democratic Party.

The fifth and final leg of the Democratic Party are what I call Useful Leeches. This group consists of all races and ages, and they are far worse than the useful idiots. Useful idiots actually mean well. Useful leeches are angry, bitter, resentful, and believe that the world owes them a living. They survive on government handouts: food stamps, welfare, Section-8, disability, etc., and they hate themselves because of it.

Useful leeches have no desire to improve their station in life and would love nothing better than to drag the entire country down to their level of misery and poverty. Not surprisingly, this group tends to be extremely racist and intolerant. They live in a constant state of fear.

The hardcore socialists and communists of the first and third groups love useful leeches, because they are so easily manipulated. They make excellent shock troops, and can be employed to strike fear among the population and silence critics on the right.

If there’s any hope of saving our country, it lies with the useful idiots. With extremely few exceptions, the members of the other groups are not going to change. Useful idiots CAN change if they are approached and educated correctly. A friendly conversation here, a book or article passed along there, and slowly but surely the tide can be turned.

If we can begin to sway even 5-10% of the useful idiots, we can tilt the balance of our country back to its Constitutional foundation. We can’t look to others to do this. The work is ours. The future of our country rests with us.

(Thanks to my friend, Alan, for suggesting this topic.)

How Do I Steal From Thee? Let Me Count the Ways

After being laid off in 2012, I recently returned to work. Not having received a paycheck in two years, I had forgotten how much money the government steals from us. Comparing my gross pay to my net pay is like taking a shot to the solar plexus. I’m astounded that most Americans aren’t upset about the taxes they pay and remain blissfully ignorant of the fact that until 1913, there was no income tax.

I work hard for my money — very hard. Here’s a partial list of where MY money goes, without my consent:

Welfare recipients. About 20% actually deserve to be on welfare. The other 80% would rather stay home, watch television, and take a government check than work.

Food stamp recipients. Again, about 20% really need assistance. The others are stuffing their fat faces with money earned by hard-working Americans.

Subsidizing the so-called “arts.” You know what I’m talking about. The kind of pretentious art that no one wants or is willing to pay money for, but government supports (with my money). Have you been to a modern play lately? How about a modern opera or art gallery? Is modern sculpture your cup of tea? Well, I’m here to tell you, they all stink. Not the classics, but today’s art. Without government money, they would all dry up and blow away. And maybe then the real artists would appear. The purpose of art is to honor God and elevate men and women. What passes for art today, including popular culture, aspires to the exact opposite: dishonoring God and degrading men and women. And it’s our money that pays for it.

Subsidizing multi-million dollar sports stadiums. In case you haven’t noticed, professional football and the Olympics have turned into spectacles of satanic worship, with professional baseball and basketball not far behind. No, I’m not kidding. Our tax dollars fund the expensive, privately owned stadiums, where grown men (and some grown women) pay obscene ticket prices and allow themselves to be both surveilled by drones, as well as searched and fondled by other grown men (and some grown women), for the privilege of watching still other grown men play with a ball. Meanwhile, the billionaire owners laugh all the way to the bank.

Financing Planned Parenthood. This hijacking of our money is perhaps the most evil of all. Everyone involved with Planned Parenthood is going straight to hell, and the government is stealing our money to pay for it. Keep in mind that when the government uses our money to pay for things such as abortion, we become partially responsible. If that appalls you as much as it does me, then take a vow to only support politicians who are 100% pro-life.

Paying for Michelle Obama’s expensive dresses and Hawaiian vacations.

Financing Leftist propaganda disguised as education. The education our children our currently receiving, in which they are being taught by current Common Core curriculum that Abraham Lincoln was a liberal and a Democrat, that the Nazis were justified in much of what they did, that white Americans are racist and either got over their racism by voting for aka Obama, or held to their racism by not voting for him, is all being paid for out of our pockets. You work hard for your money, do you want it being spent teaching children revisionist history?

Paying interest to the Federal Reserve for the money they print and then lend to our country. Most readers of this site know that the Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel that has usurped the power to print money (in direct violation of the Constitution). It’s the greatest crime of this and the last century, and the source of almost every problem we face today, yet only one in every ten thousand Americans is aware of this fact, and the ones who don’t know, don’t care.

Paying the bloated salaries and pensions of union contracts.

Financing ludicrous “scientific” studies on such subjects as “Why lesbians are fat.”

Social security and disability. A massive Ponzi scheme some of us may never see. I’ve met at least ten able-bodied Americans in the last year, all fully capable of holding down a job, and every one of them collecting disability or social security.

I’d like to write more, but I can’t. I have to go to work to pay for all the scams listed above.

Feel free to add your own items to this list.

Insider Tells of Planned Parenthood Horrors

Former Planned Parenthood worker: ‘It was a money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work’ Edit (0)
BY KIRSTEN ANDERSEN
Fri Feb 14, 2014 16:42 EST

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, February 14, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A former Planned Parenthood worker has opened up to a diocesan newspaper in a gripping tell-all interview, saying she was shocked at the horrors she witnessed during the two years she worked in Indiana’s largest abortion facility.

Marianne Anderson is a nurse who assisted Planned Parenthood abortionists by partially sedating women who paid extra for that luxury. She told The Criterion newspaper that she saw many women pressured into abortions they did not want, including minor girls.

(Read the complete interview with Anderson here)

“One young girl came in with her mom,” Anderson told the paper. “She was about 16. Her mom had made the appointment. That’s not supposed to be how it works. It’s supposed to only be the patient who makes the appointment. I checked her in, and she thought she was there for a prenatal checkup. The mom was pushing it. She blindsided her own daughter.”

Another time, said Anderson, “This guy brought in a Korean girl. I had no doubt in my mind this girl was a sex slave. This guy would not leave her side. They could barely communicate. He wanted to make all the arrangements. During the ultrasound, she told one of the nurses that there were lots of girls in the house, and that the man hits them. She never came back for the abortion. I always wondered what happened to her. One of my co-workers said, ‘You’re better off to just let it go.’”

When women cried during the abortion procedure, Anderson said, abortionist Michael King would shame them. “These girls would start crying on the table, and Dr. King would say, ‘Now you chose to be here. Sit still. I don’t have time for this.’”

“One doctor, when he was in the POC [products of conception] room, would talk to the aborted baby while looking for all the parts. ‘Come on, little arm, I know you’re here! Now you stop hiding from me!’ It just made me sick to my stomach,” Anderson said. “The sound the suction machine made when it turned on still haunts me.”

Anderson told The Criterion she started working at the facility because she believed that as long as women were having abortions, they should be safe about it.

But Anderson quickly abandoned her illusions of safety once she began work at Planned Parenthood. “I started feeling uneasy working there when people came from national in New York City to teach us the conscious sedation process,” Anderson told the paper. “It was disgusting. These two ladies had this chant they would do: ‘Abortion all the time!’ I thought, ‘I’ve got to get out of here.’ That was about six to eight months after I started.”

Click “like” if you are PRO-LIFE!

Anderson said the overall experience of working for Planned Parenthood was “absolutely miserable.”

“It was a money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work,” she said. “I was always getting in trouble for talking too long to the girls, asking if they were sure they wanted to do this.”

“You have to have so many [abortions] a month to stay open,” Anderson said. “In our meetings they’d tell us, ‘If abortions are down, you could get sent home early and not get as many hours.’”

Anderson finally escaped her job at Planned Parenthood with assistance from Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who runs the charity And Then There Were None, which is dedicated to helping abortion clinic workers leave the industry. After reading Johnson’s book Unplanned, Anderson reached out to Johnson via social media and told her she wanted to get out.

Johnson put her in touch with Eileen Hartman, a local pro-life leader who immediately jumped into action, helping Anderson polish her resume and setting up job interviews with local hospitals and doctors.

Anderson was fired by Planned Parenthood in July 2012, but was immediately hired by Community North Hospital, where she is now a nurse. “I was mad because I wanted to quit,” Anderson said. But she added, “I love my job now. I work with wonderful, Christian people. I just love it.”

To help her deal with the remorse she feels over the two years she spent helping abortionists take babies’ lives, Anderson attended a retreat put on by Johnson’s group, and now prays daily for the babies whose abortions she was part of.

It took Anderson a while to decide to go public with her story, but now that she has, she says she is ready to return to Planned Parenthood. This time, she’ll be a sidewalk counselor, praying for abortion-minded women and encouraging them to choose life.

Correction 02/14/14: This article originally stated that Marianne Anderson is a Roman Catholic. This is incorrect. LifeSiteNews.com apologizes for the error.

Abortion and Planned Parenthood: the Scourge of Heaven

For the past eighteen months, I have been studying Marian apparitions from around the world:

Fatima
Medjugorje
Ecuador
Bayside, New York
Necedah, Wisconsin
Long Grove, Illinois
Belleville, Illinois
Guadalupe
Garabandal

…and many more.

The evidence of a Heavenly presence at these places is overwhelming and includes photographs of celestial beings, miracles of healing and conversion, eye-witness testimony, seers in ecstasy, and Fatima’s famous “Miracle of the Sun” which took place before 70,000 witnesses.

At each and every one of these locations, Mary, who is known in the Church as the Queen of Heaven, has steadfastly spoken of Heaven’s condemnation of abortion. Here’s a small portion of what the seers have reported her saying:

Bayside, New York: “A state of life exists now, far worse than it was in the time of Herod! The Holy Innocents were slaughtered, but your numbers now, of children being slaughtered are counted in the millions! Damnation is the eventual judgement upon any man or woman who takes any measure in the slaughter of the unborn!”

Ecuador: “Another great victory of satan is abortion, which is an attempt against the great blessing of the Father, life.”

Necedah, Wisconsin: “I came here most of all because of the little children… Millions of little unborn have found death in the most hideous and cruel way… the wailing and the death of millions of unborn are on all citizens’ consciences if they have one or not… It is not spoken of in the churches from the pulpits. They fear to offend their parishioners… Remember this, it is a life from the moment of conception. No medical man who is honest, can tell you otherwise. No Clergyman who is truthful, can tell you otherwise… ‘THOU SHALT NOT KILL.’ It is a mortal sin with the reward of eternal Hellfire. My children, STOP this terrible killing. STOP IT, or the chastisement will be so severe you will envy the dead.”

Long Grove, Illinois: “To all those who condone abortion: hear me now, for I tell you of your future. If you do not turn back now, mankind seeks a terrible chastisement from his God. Abortion is strictly murder. Mankind is murdering the Holy Innocents of today”

Belleville, Illinois: “My dear children, you cry and lament over loved ones lost in wars of this century, and fail to see how many of my tiniest dear children are killed in their mothers’ wombs every day, more than all of these past wars put together. I beseech you to pray, pray, pray that this great sin of abortion against the laws of God and man must come to an end. This is truly the work of satan.”

Fatima: Lucia said Mary spoke to her of the sin of babies being killed in the womb. At the time, Lucia didn’t understand what Mary was talking about.

I think the evidence is clear that abortion is a one-way ticket to eternal damnation in hell, not only for the mother who chooses to abort a human life, but also for the father, the doctor, the nurses, the abortion clinic’s administrative staff, organizations that support abortion (Planned Parenthood and others), politicians and judges who enact laws that legalize and support abortion, voters who cast their ballots for these same politicians and judges, media that supports abortion (books, movies, television, newspapers, websites, etc.), the people who either work for or own stock in those media companies, etc.

That’s a pretty long list, totaling hundreds of millions of people in our country alone. Across the world, it runs into the billions. Perhaps that’s why at Bayside, New York, Mary also said: “Souls are falling into hell faster than snowflakes that cascaded upon you in the worst part of your winters.”

Don’t kid yourself by thinking that you can be a good Christian, or a good Jew, or a good anything, who pretends to love and honor God, yet still support people like aka Obama, Hilary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and others who ardently support abortion.

If that statement angers you, perhaps God is trying to tell you something. Remember, the truth hurts. If you feel remorse over supporting abortion in the past, God will forgive you. All you have to do is ask.

Eternal damnation is a long, long time.

By refusing to support any individual or organization that promotes abortion, by refusing to spend your money at any business that is not 100% pro-life, you remove yourself from this most terrible of sins.

Why not pass this on to someone you know who supports abortion? You may lose a friend, but end up saving a soul.

In 1973 only 2.8% of American women had aborted a child.

By 2008 that percentage had grown to 40%.

SatanFrom 2008 to 2013, under the regime of President Lucifer, abortion mills have risen to a near governmental power, and are being actively promoted in the public schools.

The following article can be read at: http://www.johnstonsarchive.net/policy/abortion/uslifetimeab.html

Percentage of United States women who have had abortions

compiled by Wm. Robert Johnston
last updated 15 October 2008

Summary: It is estimated here that, as of 2008, about 28% of U.S. women ages 15-64 have had abortions. This figure has risen from 2.8% in 1973 to 11% in 1980, 19% in 1987, 24% in 1994, and 27% in 2001. In 2008, of women ages 40-55, about 40% have had abortions in their lifetimes.

From 1967 to September 2008, approximately 50,200,000 abortions occurred in the United States; of these, about 30,260,000 or 60% were to women with no prior abortions [1,2]. In other words, 30,260,000 different women had one or more abortions from 1967 to the present in the U.S.

Given that there were 101,314,000 women ages 15-64 in the U.S. in 2007, this implies about 25-28% of women ages 15-64 in the U.S. today have had at least one abortion in their lifetime. The uncertainty stems from unaccounted-for factors such as mortality among older women, women who have immigrated into the U.S. in this time period, U.S. women who obtained abortions abroad, and abortions obtained in the U.S. by women from other countries. (This discussion only includes legal abortions; illegal abortions prior to the 1970s were probably in numbers small enough not to significantly affect the final results.)

These statistics are reported by the Alan Guttmacher Institute:

  • “… roughly one-third of women will have an abortion during their reproductive lifetime…” (2008) [1]
  • “… of American women … at current rates more than one-third (35%) will have had an abortion by age 45.” (2008) [3]
  • “… of women aged 15-44 … 30% have had an abortion.” (1992 figures) [4]

The following data are based on a model incorporating data from a 2008 Alan Guttmacher Institute release [1], reporting 1973-2004 figures based on their periodic surveys of abortion providers (these surveys are widely accepted as the most complete data available on U.S. abortions), supplemented by CDC and other data for 1967-1972 [2] and estimates for 2005-2008.

The graph below shows estimated number of U.S. women who have had abortions by age. The annual number of abortions in the U.S. peaked in 1990, although the abortion rate per 1000 women aged 15-44 peaked earlier, in 1980. This abortion rate has dropped from 29.28 in 1980 to 19.41 in 2005, representing a variety of factors but likely including a shift in attitudes towards abortion. The peak in the graph has shifted with the aging of those women who obtained abortions in the 1980s.

The next graph shows the estimated percentage of U.S. women who have had abortions by age. Again, it shows the aging of women who obtained abortions in the first 15-20 years after Roe v. Wade and the more recent drop in abortion rates among women under 25. Consequently, the fraction of 25-year-old women who have obtained abortions has dropped from 32% in 1980-87 to 26% in 2001 and 21% in 2008.

The following table gives estimated percentages of U.S. women who have ever had abortions by age ranges–note that these percentages are approximate. Nonetheless, both the prevalence and the shifting demographics of abortion is evident. (One issue is the health implications of a large aging population who have obtained abortions in the past–for example, given the possible link between induced abortion and breast cancer.)

year estimated % of US women who have had abortions by age range
12-80 15-64 12-19 20-29 30-39 40-49 50-59 60-69 70-79
1973 2.3 2.8 2.7 6.2 2.7 0.6 0.0 0.0 0.0
1980 9.0 11.1 6.1 23.3 13.5 4.4 0.3 0.0 0.0
1987 15.2 18.6 6.2 30.6 29.6 12.2 2.6 0.1 0.0
1994 19.8 24.4 4.6 30.4 39.8 25.8 8.6 1.3 0.0
2001 22.3 27.0 4.8 26.6 40.0 36.9 16.6 4.8 0.3
2008 24.3 28.6 2.3 19.3 35.0 41.2 34.6 14.3 3.4

A 1998 study by Henshaw [4] included a more sophisticated analysis than the one above; for 1994, here are a comparison of percentage of women who have had abortions by age range from Henshaw and from this analysis–to give some indication of the uncertainty in the figures above.

year estimated % of US women who have had abortions by age range
15-19 20-24 25-29 30-34 35-39 40-44
1994, Henshaw 7.0 26.3 37.3 40.2 38.3 25.0
1994, this analysis 7.2 24.9 35.5 39.8 39.8 31.2

Gosnell Jury: “We’re Hung on 2 Counts”

I’m hoping the 2 counts they’re hung on are like maybe

“Jay walking” :D

Guilty on the other 248 charges 

After 10 days deliberating the case, jurors say they can’t reach a consensus on two

Defense attorney Jack McMahon delivers his closing argument in the capital murder trial of former abortion doctor Jack McMahon.

Defense attorney Jack McMahon delivers his closing argument in the capital murder trial of former abortion doctor Jack McMahon.

The jury deliberating in the capital murder trial against former Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell says they’re hung on two counts.

The jury of seven women and five men are weighing more than 250 charges against the Gosnell with the most serious being four counts of first-degree murder.

It is currently unclear on which charges the jury is deadlocked, but the group told the court it has reached unanimous decisions on all other counts.

Around 10:00 a.m. Monday, the jury passed a note to Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart explaining their situation. The admission came on the 10th day of deliberations.

By law, according to attorneys for both sides, Judge Minehart is required to re-instruct the jury to deliberate on the two charges a second time and attempt to reach a verdict.

Around 10:00 a.m. Monday, the jury passed a note to Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart explaining their situation. The admission came on the 10th day of deliberations.

By law, according to attorneys for both sides, Judge Minehart is required to re-instruct the jury to deliberate on the two charges a second time and attempt to reach a verdict.

udge Minehart brought the jury into the courtroom on the third-floor of the Philadelphia Criminal Justice Center around 11:15 a.m.

Over a five minute meeting, he reminded the jury they must be unanimous on all counts and asked the group to return to the jury room and discuss the charges further. The group was grim-faced as they were led from the court.

Judge Minehart called the jury sincere, considerate and serious. The judge also said he wanted to make sure the group was not confused over the charges.

The jury now has three options: return to court with a question, request to re-examine evidence to try and break the deadlock or re-iterate they’ll be unable to reach a consensus on the charges.

Gosnell faces four counts of first-degree murder for his alleged role in the deaths of four babies. Prosecutors allege Gosnell delivered the babies alive during abortion procedures and then snipped their spinal cords with scissors to end their life.

The 72-year-old is also charged with third-degree murder in the of former patient Karnamaya Mongar.

Mongar, 41, died after she was given a lethal dose of pain killers and anesthesia during a 2009 abortion procedure at Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic, the Women’s Medical Society.

The former doctor’s defense attorney has argued Gosnell would inject a drug into his patients’ uterus to stop the fetuses’ hearts before they were delivered.

The majority of the 268 charges levied against Gosnell are related to alleged Pennsylvania abortion-law violations. Prosecutors say Gosnell regularly performed late-term abortions on babies older than 24 weeks — the cutoff age in Pennsylvania.

Jurors are also deliberating a handful of crimes against Gosnell’s co-defendant Eileen O’Neill. Prosecutors say O’Neill deceived patients and insurance companies by pretending to be a licensed physician and billing for those services.

Her defense has said while O’Neill was not licensed, she did have a medical degree and would always have Gosnell sign off on her recommendations and prescriptions. O’Neill’s attorney also said there is no evidence of the 56-year-old charging for her services.

The trial, which began on March 18, stretched on for nearly two months before being handed off to the jury.

The alleged crimes came to light on February 10, 2010 after investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Drug Enforcement Agency raided the inner-city clinic at 3801 Lancaster Avenue following a tip that a prescription pill mill was operating inside.

Agents were met, not with an illegal narcotics drug operation, but rather, unsanitary conditions. Investigators testified they found blood-stained rooms, filthy and old equipment and untrained staff. Aborted fetuses were stored in a basement freezer in plastic food containers and bags next to employee lunches. Severed feet from aborted babies were found preserved in jars around the clinic.

The conditions found inside the clinic led Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams to call the clinic a “house of horrors” in a 2011 grand jury report.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Gosnell faces the death penalty.

HOLDER’S FAMILY PAPERS OVER HIS TIES TO ABORTION DOCTOR

Holder's family papers over his ties to abortion doctor

(Read this article at Human Events: http://www.humanevents.com/2012/10/31/eric-holders-family-papers-over-his-ties-to-abortion-doctor/)

Eric Holder Jr.’s family is moving fast and furiously to bury the U.S. Attorney General’s ties to one of Georgia’s most notorious abortion doctors.

Just cleared by an internal report in the “Fast and Furious” gunrunning debacle, the nation’s top lawman now faces allegations that his connection to Dr. Tyrone Cecil Malloy is a conflict of interest that helps explain Holder’s failure to prosecute abortion providers who run afoul of federal law.

Critics say it may also explain why Holder has been eager to prosecute pro-life advocates who counsel women outside abortion clinics.

Holder4-175x192Documents obtained by Watchdog show that Holder’s wife and sister-in-law co-own, through a family trust, the building where Malloy operated. A Georgia grand jury indicted Malloy on Medicaid fraud charges in 2011. A state medical board twice reprimanded the doctor.

Holder and his wife, Sharon Malone Holder, an obstetric and gynecological doctor at Foxhall OB/GYN in Washington, D.C., failed to respond to several requests for comment.

But reached by phone at her home in Minneapolis, Margie Malone Tuckson, Holder’s sister-in-law, said there’s no link at all — that Fulton County tax records showing the property belongs to her and Holder’s wife “are wrong.”

“I don’t own this property and my sister does not own this property. We are not technically on this deed,” Malone Tuckson said.

However, public documents reviewed by Watchdog.org show that the family transferred ownership to a family trust in 2009, eight months after President Barack Obama’s inauguration. But even the new deed directly names Holder’s wife and sister-in-law as trustees. After inquiries by Watchdog reporters, Tuckson contacted the Fulton County Assessor’s office and asked them to change tax records to reflect the “new” ownership.

But none of these technical changes obscures the Holders’ conflict of interest. Catherine Davis, a founding member of the National Black Prolife Coalition and president and founder of The Restoration Project — a Stone Mountain, Ga.-based pro-life, pro-family organization — said she’s outraged by the revelations.

“There is a clear conflict of interest when the man charged with pursuing those that abuse the system is also one who is engaged in some way with the business,” said Davis, whose organization brought the issue to the attention of Watchdog.

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, a national pro-life organization based in Wichita, Kan., said the disclosures help him understand why Holder has been targeting pro-life advocates.

In recent months, judges have blocked Holder’s efforts to punish pro-life supporters counseling women outside abortion clinics. In one case, Holder’s Department of Justice agreed to pay Mary “Susan” Pine $120,000 for its filing of an “improper lawsuit” against her, according to a statement by Liberty Counsel, an Orlando, Fla.-based nonprofit legal firm. Pine counseled women on the sidewalk outside a Florida abortion clinic.

“It looks to me like the attorney general and his wife are in business with the abortion industry, which makes a lot of sense and helps explain why (Holder’s Justice Department) is prosecuting pro-lifers and losing the cases around the country,” Newman said.

“They have been attempting to prosecute pro-life people under the (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act of 1994), and as far as I know they have lost 100 percent of those cases in the last four years. This (Malone Holder’s property interest) explains his bias. I don’t think it’s a surprise to anybody that Holder and the Obama Administration are extremely biased against pro-life people and in favor of the pro-abortion crowd.”

Fulton County tax records show Holder’s wife and sister-in-law own the building, located at 6210 Old National Highway, College Park, Ga. A statement from the Georgia Department of Law shows the building was home to Old National Gynecology, Malloy’s medical practice devoted to the performance of abortions.

In December 2011, the statement says, a DeKalb County Grand Jury indicted Malloy, Old National’s owner and operator, and his former office manager CathyAnn Edwards Warner on two counts of Medicaid fraud. The indictment alleged Malloy and Edwards accepted nearly $390,000 in federal medical assistance payments for medical office visits associated with the performance of elective abortions and for ultrasound services that were never performed.

Federal funds cannot be used to pay for abortions and associated services, except where the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest or would endanger the mother’s life, according to the statement.

Malloy and Warner refused to enter a plea in the case, arguing the indictment was constitutionally flawed, according to the Georgia Department of Law. On May 2, a judge entered a not guilty plea on their behalf — and then promptly denied their motion challenging the constitutionality of the Medicaid law in Georgia.

Malloy and Warner appealed to the Georgia Supreme Court. The defendants’ brief is due by Nov. 5 and the state’s response by Nov. 26.

Attorneys for Malloy and Warner did not respond to requests for comment.

“My concern is Dr. Malloy’s political connections are so high up that he’s going to end up getting off on these charges,” said Michelle Wolven, the lead investigator and researcher for Eagle Watch, an abortion watchdog group in Dallas, Ga. that worked with the National Black Prolife Coalition to uncover the connections between Holder’s wife and Malloy.

‘I’M NOT GOING TO HELP YOU!’

The same tax records show the building was formerly owned by Dr. Mack A. Jones, late husband of another of Holder’s sister-in-laws, Vivian Malone Jones. Her death, announced in an Oct. 14, 2005 obituary in The Washington Post, reported that she was Malone Holder’s sister.

Vivian Malone Jones was one of two African American students who sought to enroll at the University of Alabama in 1963 only to be blocked by Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace in the infamous “stand in the schoolhouse door” incident, according to The Washington Post and Associated Press obituaries.

Early in the Watchdog investigation, Tuckson, Holder’s sister-in-law and co-owner of the Georgia building, flatly denied she and her sister ever had an interest in the building.

“No, absolutely not,” Tuckson said. “I’ve told you the truth: I do not technically own that property. My sister does not technically own that property. And if you say that we do, that is a lie.”

Asked why she used the word “technically,” Tuckson said, “You need to do your own work and look at the deed. I pulled it up, and I’m looking at it right now. We are not on the deed.”

A Watchdog reporter asked Tuckson how she happened to have a copy of the deed to a piece of property she doesn’t own. After a very long pause, Tuckson replied, “I just pulled it up.”

Would she share that document with Watchdog? Absolutely not, she said.

“I told you: I’m not doing your work for you. You get paid for this. I don’t,” Tuckson said.

Asked how she squared the document she was reviewing with the Fulton County tax records, Tuckson said, “That’s your problem to figure out. I’m not going to help you.”

Could she explain why the Fulton tax assessor had been assessing and collecting taxes from her and her sister?

“That’s your problem to figure out,” Tuckson said. “I have nothing more to say.”

The next day, Tuckson had more to say.

She called the Watchdog reporter to say she had contacted the Fulton County assessor. Someone there had assured her that her appearance as an owner on tax documents “was a mistake” that was now cleared up.

“So my sister and I are not technically the owners of that property,” she said. She thanked the reporter for helping her identify the error and hung up.

Contacted by Watchdog, the assessor’s office confirmed that its records had indeed been updated that morning. (At publication time, the online record still reflected Tuckson and Malone Holder’s ownership because, the assessor’s office said, the public-access site is managed by an outside vendor who updates sporadically.)

But the assessor was able to identify the new owner of record: Michael A. Jones and Monica Jones Shareef, a family trust on which there are only two trustees: Sharon Malone Holder and Margie Malone Tuckson, Eric Holder’s wife and sister-in-law.

“Who could authorize a change like that?” the Watchdog reporter asked the Fulton County clerk. “I mean, what’s to keep you from transferring ownership to me?”

“You’d have to be a trustee on the testamentary trust,” she said. “You’d have to be a trustee.”

Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, a senior fellow at the University of Southern California Price School of Public Policy, said many politicians have trusts or blind trusts and the question always is, as has been debated in this presidential campaign, how blind is the trust?

“So, if you want to give the attorney general and his wife the benefit of the doubt — and if you are a Democrat or pro-abortion rights, you might want to do that — it is not perceived as a conflict of interest,” Bebitch Jeffe said.

“If you do not want to give the attorney general or his wife the benefit of the doubt — if you may be anti-abortion rights, if you may want to raise questions about the neutrality of the attorney general — then you will perceive it as a conflict of interest. Legally, you have to figure that out and I can’t do that. But politically, it’s very clear that where you stand depends on where you sit.”

A blind trust is created so that a third-party manages investments for the actual owner. The owner is kept ignorant about — is blind to — his or her investments.

In this case, politics — pro-life or pro-choice —is probably less relevant than the fact that Fulton County documents reveal that this trust is anything but blind.

HOLDER’S INACTION

Karen Handel, the former secretary of state in Georgia and a former senior vice president of public policy for the Susan G. Komen Center, said she was “shocked” by the findings of the Watchdog investigation.

“It certainly underscores the deep ties the Obama Administration has to the abortion issue,” said Handel, author of the new book, Planned Bullyhood: The Truth Behind the Headlines about the Planned Parenthood Funding Battle with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

“This certainly seems to shed some additional light into why Obama and his team seem obsessed with protecting Planned Parenthood and abortion rights at the expense of other important issues in the country.”

The Georgia and national office of Planned Parenthood did not return calls for comment.

Davis’ organization, the National Black Prolife Coalition, has been working with Georgia pro-life activists on the state’s failure to enforce abortion regulations. Davis also spearheaded a billboard campaign, “Betrayed – Abortion in the Hood,” to call attention to the pro-abortion views of many African-American leaders and the disproportionately high rates of abortion in black communities. Abortion is the No. 1 one killer of African Americans, according to the National Black Prolife Coalition.

“Here in Georgia, almost 60 percent of abortions in the state are on black women, and it’s been that way for 15 years,” Davis said. “In New York, for every 1,000 babies born alive, 1,448 are aborted.

“In every state that reports abortion figures, you will find it’s more likely that black women are leading. In Virginia, it’s 47 percent of black women. In Mississippi, it’s 78 percent of black women. The impact is devastating.”

The Watchdog investigation, Davis says, helps explain this phenomenon and reveals why Holder hasn’t more aggressively investigated and prosecuted alleged Medicaid fraud in the abortion industry.

Davis pointed to cases in which activists have sued Planned Parenthood for alleged Medicaid fraud – in Georgia, Iowa, Texas, New York, and Massachusetts – but where Holder’s Justice Department has failed to act.

“The U.S. attorney general has not at all pursued a case against any of them, including this one in Georgia where his wife owns the property,” Davis said.

The controversy comes amid growing concerns about the extent of alleged Medicaid fraud among abortion providers nationwide and a congressional investigation into Planned Parenthood.

In February, the Alliance Defense Fund – recently renamed the Alliance Defending Freedom – issued a report to Congress identifying “waste, abuse and potential fraud by Planned Parenthood affiliates and other abortion providers.”  The report analyzed 10 state audits that uncovered nearly $8 million in Medicaid overpayments to Planned Parenthood affiliates. The report also looked at 38 federal audits of state family planning programs with up to $99 million in overbilling charges.

The ADF is representing two former Planned Parenthood clinic managers in lawsuits in Texas and Iowa that allege Medicaid overbilling and fraud. If the ADF prevails in the Iowa lawsuit, Planned Parenthood could be ordered to pay the federal government and Iowa as much as $5.5 billion in False Claims Act damages and penalties, said Michael Norton, the former U.S. attorney in the District of Colorado and a senior counsel at the ADF.

“Our overall goal with respect to these kinds of cases is to defund Planned Parenthood,” Norton said. “Planned Parenthood is responsible for 350,000 abortions a year and is the nation’s largest abortion provider. It’s obviously well tied in with the current administration. This president is the most pro-abortion president in history and he has substantially direct and beneficial ties to Planned Parenthood. They’ve spent a lot of money in support of this president’s re-election.”

In recent months, various organizations have expressed growing concern about the connections between the Obama Administration and Planned Parenthood.

“Under President Obama, we have seen the biggest taxpayer funding of abortion in our history,” Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver said in a statement. “Taxpayers should never be forced to violate their conscience and fund any abortion organization. The Obama HHS mandate will force religious employers to fund abortion-inducing drugs, despite their religious objections.”

U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., who is leading the congressional investigation into Planned Parenthood, told Watchdog the ADF report and a similar one by Americans United for Life raises questions about the extent of Medicaid fraud among abortion providers.

“Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, yet last year it received $487 million from taxpayers while having annual income of $1 billion,” Stearns said in an emailed statement. “Although Planned Parenthood is barred from using taxpayer funds to perform abortions, these dollars are fungible and allow the group to use funds from other sources ostensibly for abortions.

“My investigation of Planned Parenthood is the first time Congress has asked this group to account for its use of public funds. Given the revenues of Planned Parenthood and its ability to raise funds, we should end its taxpayer support.”

FINES AND MORE TRAINING

Malloy’s 2011 indictment was not his first run-in with the law.

In 1999, one of his patients lost a baby shortly after birth, according to Georgia Composite Medical Board records. The Composite State Board of Medical Examiners determined that the woman had not received proper treatment. Malloy was publicly reprimanded, ordered to receive additional training and fined $5,000, according to the records.

In 2008, he received another public reprimand, was ordered to receive even more training and fined $10,000 after one of his patients died shortly after a botched abortion, according to the Medical Board records.

In September 2011, Malloy filed papers with the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office to terminate the Old National Gynecology corporation. However, his medical license remains active, according to the Composite State Board of Medical Examiners.

“To the best of our knowledge, Dr. Malloy is still performing abortions in the Atlanta area despite the indictment for Medicaid fraud,” Georgia Right to Life spokeswoman Suzanne Ward said.

The Watchdog investigation, Wolven says, makes it clear that Holder has a conflict of interest when it comes to investigating and prosecuting abortion providers allegedly engaged in Medicaid fraud. She said Congress should investigate further.

“I think Eric Holder needs to step down immediately, not just because of this conflict of interest, but with everything taken together as a whole,” Wolven said. “He was investigated earlier this year in the ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal. He’s prosecuting pro-lifers needlessly. They have had to go through the tremendous turmoil, stress and expense of going to federal court just to have the cases thrown out.”

As a former Department of Justice employee, Norton said it’s vitally important for criminal prosecutors to avoid any potential conflict of interest.

“In these kinds of positions, you have to be purer than Caesar’s wife,” Norton said. “You can’t take a chance and scoff at conflict of interest issues. It’s vital to maintain the credibility of the criminal justice system to be above board in all respects.”

True Racism

Remember all the gloating and exhalting Planned Parenthood Prima Donas who Headlined Obama’s 2012 Democratic Convention in Charlotte last August?

Here’s a  quote from Margaret Sanger, the founding mother of Planned Parenthood:

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities (Sounds like a description of Barack Obama). The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”[Source: Margaret Sanger's December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon's Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976]Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.

“I think you must agree … that the campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims (sounds like ‘final solution’) of eugenics… Birth control propaganda is thus the entering wedge for the eugenic educator.”

“As an advocate of birth control I wish… to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit,’ admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feebleminded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation.”

“On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.”[Source: Margaret Sanger. "The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda." Birth Control Review, October 1921, page 5]

From the pro-Sanger website, Margaret Sanger Papers Project:

…. My interests have expanded from local conditions and needs, to a world horizon, where peace on earth may be achieved when children are wanted before they are conceived. A new conciousness will take place, a new race will be born to bring peace on earth. This belief has withstood the crucible of my life’s joyous struggle. It remains my basic belief today.

This I believe–at the end, as at the beginning of my long crusade for the future of the human race.

And finally, from her 1919 article “Birth Control and Racial Betterment” published in The Birth Control Review:

While I personally believe in the sterilization of the feeble-minded, the insane and syphilitic, I have not been able to discover that these measures are more than superficial deterrents when applied to the constantly growing stream of the unfit. They are excellent means of meeting a certain phase of the situation, but I believe in regard to these, as in regard to other eugenic means, that they do not go to the bottom of the matter. Neither the mating of healthy couples nor the sterilization of certain recognized types of the unfit touches the great problem of unlimited reproduction of those whose housing, clothing, and food are all inadequate to physical and mental health. These measures do not touch those great masses, who through economic pressure populate the slums and there produce in their helplessness other helpless, diseased and incompetent masses, who overwhelm all that eugenics can do among those whose economic condition is better.

With Christian colleges like this, who needs atheists?

Seventh-day Adventist University names new economics centre after abortionist

BY MEAGHEN HALE

Riverside, California, January 16, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Seventh-day Adventist website ADvindicate has recently drawn attention to the fact that La Sierra University has named a new economics centre after abortionist and gambling magnate Edward C. Allred, who in 1980 claimed to have personally aborted a quarter of a million babies in twelve years.

La Sierra University

In 2010, La Sierra, a Seventh-day Adventist University in Riverside, California, established the Edward C. Allred Center to promote free market economics among high school students. The centre’s abortionist namesake founded the Family Planning Associates Medical Group in 1969, a chain of abortion clinics that reportedly makes $70 million in revenue and $5 million in profit annually.

“It hardly seems possible that La Sierra University, which still purports to be a Seventh-day Adventist school, would name anything after a man who has left such a trail of wreckage in his wake,” wrote David Read of ADVindicate. Read described Allred as “a man who made his fortune eliminating two generations of humanity, and now spends his days devising ways to separate gamblers from their money.”

"Dr." Allred

Dr. Edward C. “250,000-abortions-in-12-years!” Allred

The university issued a press release about the controversy stating that “La Sierra University benefits from the generosity of a wide variety of donors—Adventist and non-Adventist.”

University Relations Executive Director Larry Becker told LifeSiteNews that a proposal for naming a new building or centre of learning is considered “on its own merits.”

Here’s the account of a beautiful young lady who barely escaped an abortionist’s clutches with her life.

Gianna Jessen’s Story

Gianna’s biological mother was 17 when she had a saline abortion in her third trimester. After being burned alive for approximately 18 hours in the womb from the saline solution, Gianna was delivered alive in a Los Angeles County abortion clinic. The procedure left her with cerebral palsy, which led doctors to assert that she would never be able to hold up her head, sit up, crawl or walk. However, Gianna began to walk by the age of three years old with the help of leg braces and a walker. Now, she runs marathons across the world. On April 30, 2005 Gianna completed her first 26.2 mile marathon after running just over 7 hours. On April 23, 2006 she completed the London Marathon.
