After President Trump signed the 2,000-plus page HR 1625 omnibus bill, America’s Conservative base screamed betrayal. For good reason: The bill appeared to give the Marxist Dems everything they desired with the non-Establishment GOP receiving scraps (or perhaps crumbs in Pelosi terminology).

 

This is good reasoning for Conservative outrage!

 

On a personal level though, despite the Leftists spoils going to the Dems (and those the spoils are legion as you will read from Justin Smith), the YUGE Omnibus Bill was also the largest military budget Bill in American history. The military spending purpose was more than merely reversing Obama’s military dismemberment. The money was needed to modernize the American military to regain steps over the leaps taken by Russian and Chinese military modernizations to overcome current American weapons technology. This is ESSENTIAL!

 

Due to the purpose of military spending I’m not quite as hot against President Trump as many – perhaps most – of my fellow Conservatives. In a Congress that has no super majority for the GOP (especially the Senate), the only way to get and keep government moving on a Conservative agenda is to make some painful concessions. The problem with HR 1625 way too many concessions were made that give the appearance of Conservative diminishment.

 

Justin sent this insightful post on the Omnibus package on March 24. I have since come across some info that may temper Justin’s and Conservatives’ anger a bit. The President has hinted via his favorite path to communicate with Americans – a tweet – that he will build The Wall with the Defense Budget allocation. Thomas Lifson at the American Thinker illustrates how this is possible.

 

Unfortunately, the President hasn’t addressed some of the other Omnibus egregious pork such as funding ungodly Planned Parenthood is one of probably many examples.

 

Without further ado, here is Justin’s very valid reasons for displeasure with President Trump’s signature on HR 1625.

If This Is “Representation” Give Me Rebellion

As I listen to President Trump on his action of signing the current Omnibus bill, I am left with no other conclusion than he is really not as strong a leader as many seem to believe him to be. He signed this terrible $1.3 trillion bill for all the wrong reasons and lamented its exclusion of terrible other items, like DACA, but nowhere did he castigate these do-nothing “leaders” for adding a bad gun control act called “NICS“; this Omnibus bill is all smoke and mirrors and the 33 miles of added funding for border fencing is just that – a fence [barely], not a wall.

 

 

This bill continues to fund Planned Parenthood too. — Oh — And Sanctuary Cities Too. Really? What happened to all Trump’s talk about “defunding” sanctuary cities?

 

And how many more times are we going to provide border wall funding only to see a lesser plan offered and implemented for less money and the appropriated money simply disappear? Into someone’s pockets? Especially now that we see this bill provides funding to secure the borders of Afghanistan and Iraq.

 

Trump should have refused to sign this bill and let the chips fall where they may, but he’s terrible when it comes to policy on funding government and many other items. If Trump had not signed the bill, any government shutdown would not have stopped the military from functioning. Since the military is considered an “essential” function, i.e. halting its operations could result in fatalities or impede national security, it will continue to operate regardless of whether or not the government shuts down; military spending would have been addressed soon enough, once Congress returned with a cleaner bill.

 

Whose side is the GOP really on and when are they going to start keeping their promises? This is not REPRESENTATION. THIS Is A PERPETUAL CON GAME BEING RUN ON THE U.S. TAXPAYER AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

 

Trump says, “I’ll Never Sign Another Bill Like This One” … Wanna bet?

 

It still doesn’t assuage or change the fact that some other very bad permanent pieces of legislation rode in on the tail end of this bill. That’s what happens when the Senate reverts back to pork spending legislation and why Trump is now asking for line-by-line veto authority from Congress, which was “ruled” unconstitutional in 1998, by the Supreme Court during the Clinton presidency.

 

This is also the same sort of bill that allows for funds to be easily shifted and misappropriated in the most corrupt fashion, just like Obama, because there is No Budget and these are only “spending suggestions”. This makes this entire thing end up as one great big $1.3 trillion slush fund (the largest in U.S. history)— more abuse of the U.S. taxpayer.

 

Who’s going to account for it? The GAO? The Big Govt. commie Democrats and statist RINOS?  HA!

 

Whatever the structure of this bill, it is certain and known that bills were attached, like the NICS Act [Blog Editor: See Heritage post subsection “Includes the Fix NICS Act”], a piece of leftist gun control, that Did Become PERMANENT U.S. Law now to be fully employed and implemented against U.S. Citizens. Congress even gave itself a raise and that’s Permanent and doesn’t go away in six months.

 

This was 2,232 pages that NOT ONE SENATOR READ, except for Senator Rand Paul. This is the stuff that SWAMPS ARE MADE OF and the very sort of thing that Trump was elected to END.

 

If this is what we are paying for folks, You’d be better off to break out the axes, knives and pitchforks on the front steps of the Capitol Building in DC and have a good tar and feather party for the criminal pigs and traitors to their oaths to the Constitution and America.

 

Trump called this a matter of national security because of the military spending involved, which is just wrong. The real national security issue at hand is that this takes us one step closer to another massive economic collapse, greater than 1929 or 2008 either one. What are they going to do when this actually happens, because they refuse to control the federal government’s out-of-control spending?

 

Daniel Horowitz of ‘Conservative Review’ writes: “Taken in totality, this bill validates, legitimizes, and codifies the world view of the Democrats, only with slightly less enthusiasm. Which is why the Democrats are crushing Republicans in turnout so far this election season. This bill will essentially end Republican control of Congress.”

 

This bill is conclusive evidence that House and Senate Republicans are whistling by the political graveyard, because they seem to be unaware that the content and means they used to pass this bill will turn off their base.

 

This is the bottom line: If you are a conservative voter and your party just passed a bill that funds a number of liberal priorities while busting the budget, would you bother to knock on doors for them this fall? Nope.

 

This Omnibus bill doesn’t bode well for the future of America. It appears conservative values are dead in our government, as all the GOP pays them lip service and then promptly ignores them in their votes. This is pushing middle America into an untenable position where rebellion, in some form or fashion, in the not too distant future, begins to look like an appealing choice, unless Americans start electing real conservative Constitutional minded Statesmen of honor, who will restore traditional American principles and values, and the American Heritage, under the Original Intent of Our Founders.

FACEBOOK BLOCKS FUNDING FOR MAJOR PRO-LIFE MOVIE


Facebook is using censorship to block the publicity of the Pro-Life movie exposing the nefarious behind the scenes lies and manipulation that was behind the Supreme Court making unborn baby-murder (abortion) on demand legal via Roe v. Wade in 1973. The flick is called ROE v. WADE the Movie.

I’m running with the WND story on Facebook censorship, but should note that Breitbart claims Facebook is backing off on the censorship if “crowdfunding” for the movie. However, the Breitbart story shows how Facebook took crowdfunding page down, then restored the page and then took it down again. Ergo, as of this post, who knows how many times Facebook will remove and restore.

FACEBOOK BLOCKS FUNDING FOR MAJOR PRO-LIFE MOVIE

Theatrical drama to tell ‘true story’ of Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood

 

By ART MOORE

January 12, 2018

WND

 

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger

 

A crowdfunding site for a theatrical drama in production that promises to tell the “true story” of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that established a “right” to abortion has been blocked by Facebook.

 

The movie’s producer, Nick Loeb, told WND the content of the pro-life movie, which exposes Planned Parenthood’s roots in the eugenics movement, clearly is the reason for the censorship.

 

Actor and producer Nick Loeb

“They have even blocked people sharing the ads I paid for,” Loeb said.

 

“This is stealing or fraud.”

 

Facebook has not responded to requests for an explanation.

Loeb told WND he and his colleagues are looking for a lawyer to take on the case.

 

Learn the tested and proven strategies to defeat the abortion cartel in “Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time.”

 

The executive producer of the movie is Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and the head of the group Civil Rights for the Unborn.

 

The film features Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight as a Supreme Court justice.

 

On the film’s Indiegogo crowdfunding page, the makers describe it as “the real untold story of how people lied; how the media lied; and how the courts were manipulated to pass a law that has since killed over 60 million Americans.”

 

“Many documentaries have been made, but no one has had the courage to make an actual feature film, a theatrical movie about the true story.”

 

The producers, calling it the “most important pro-life movie in history,” say Hollywood “only wants you to hear their version of the story,” noting there are three movies in development that take a pro-abortion stance.

 

“But you shouldn’t be surprised. Hollywood has always had an agenda to influence Americans to accept abortion, even if they have to re-write history to do it.”

The movie opens with Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, speaking about her “Negro project” initiative aimed at reducing the growth of African-American population in the United States.

 

It continues as abortionist Bernard Nathanson joins with famed feminist-activist Betty Friedan and Planned Parenthood to recruit for a legal case “a broke girl with a 10th grade education named Norma McCorvey,” who became known as “Jane Roe.”

 

The opposition to the activists seeking to legalize abortion is led by the film’s protagonist, Mildred Jefferson, the first African-American woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School, who believed “that she became a doctor to protect life, not destroy it.”

 

Later, Nathanson, through the help of new sonogram technology, “realizes he is killing babies, confesses to all the lies and becomes a leading activist in the pro-life movement,” and McCorvey, realizing she had been manipulated, also joins the pro-life cause.

 

Internet freedom

 

WND reported last month censorship of Christian and conservative speech online by tech companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google and Apple is the target of an initiative called Internet Freedom Watch, launched by the National Religious Broadcasters.

 

The initiative has established a website, InternetFreedomWatch.org, to document cases, including Twitter’s removal of an ad by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., in October and Facebook’s removal of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s post supporting Chick-fil-A in 2012.

 

NRB, which has published a chart with more than 30 instances of Internet censorship, said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and a former Federal Communications Commission commissioner have endorsed the effort.

 

FCC chairman Ajit Pai has accused Twitter and other tech companies of being disingenuous by arguing for a free and open Internet while they “routinely block or discriminate against content they don’t like.”

 

NRB also wants Congress to hold hearings on the “severe problem of viewpoint censorship on the Internet.”

 

In a recent case noted by Internet Freedom Watch, PJ Media D.C. editor Bridget Johnson was suspended from Twitter with no warning or explanation.

 

WND reported in August that days after the launch of a book arguing fascism and Nazism are ideological spawns of the left, author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza and his promotion team were locked out of his Facebook page by hackers.

Challenging Activist Judge & NAF


Troy Newman & Judge William Orrick

 

John R. Houk

© August 5, 2017

 

On July 14, 2015, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released its first undercover Planned Parenthood video, blowing the whistle on the abortion industry’s practice of illegally harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies.

 

Just 17 days later, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) filed a lawsuit against CMP and ultimately secured a preliminary injunction against lead investigator and CMP founder David Daleiden. The injunction prohibited him from releasing any footage obtained during NAF conferences and meetings, which David had attended undercover with the goal of exposing illegal activity by the abortion industry.

 

Fast forward almost two years—and the lawsuit is still ongoing. Meanwhile, Daleiden’s footage from the NAF conference remains under lock and key, leaving some to wonder what secrets NAF is trying to hide. (Abortion Industry’s Interests Should Never Outweigh Public Concerns or First Amendment Rights; By Marissa Mayer; Alliance Defending Freedom; 4/21/17)

 

U.S. District Judge William Orrick violated the First Amendment Rights of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) by gagging all undercover videos exposing the murderous intent by National Abortion Federation (NAF) in trafficking aborted and live birth baby parts for profit. Planned Parenthood was stung the same way. Leftists in law enforcement are doing their best to cover-up these nefarious murders and felonious activities with baby part trafficking.

 

U.S. District Judge William Orrick, who granted the preliminary injunction in favor of the National Abortion Federation to halt the release of the videos, ordered any links to the video to be removed after it was published by the Center for Medical Progress on Thursday.

 

Judge Orrick also ordered CMP lead investigator David Daleiden and his attorneys to appear in court June 14, The Associated Press reported, for a hearing where he will consider holding them in contempt for releasing the footage.

 

Mr. Daleiden has been charged with 15 felonies in California stemming from his undercover investigation into the abortion giant. His attorneys have called it a “witch hunt” that flies in the face of the First Amendment.

 

YouTube has not responded to a request for comment.

 

The three-minute video showed top Planned Parenthood executives joking about severed fetus heads, admitting to altering abortion procedures to preserve fetal organs and conceding that clinics have a financial incentive to sell the human remains from abortions. (YouTube removes latest Planned Parenthood video on judge’s order; By Bradford Richardson; Washington Times; 5/26/17)

 

Judge Orrick took advantage of the 9th Circuit Appellate Court’s unfavorable ruling to make that gag order.

 

The abortion industry has desperately tried to suppress and delegitimize the work of CMP, including through the use of litigation. We represent former CMP board member Troy Newman – who is also the President of Operation Rescue – in lawsuits filed by the National Abortion Federation (NAF) as well as Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and numerous Planned Parenthood affiliates, and we recently filed briefs in both cases.

 

In the NAF case, the trial court issued a preliminary injunction that prevents the defendants from publishing videos or materials relating to NAF conferences, or sharing such information with anyone, including state Attorneys General or local law enforcement officers, while the case moves forward. The defendants have appealed the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals to the Ninth Circuit, and we recently filed a reply brief (under seal by court order) that emphasizes that government investigators, and the general public, have a compelling interest in being able to review the videos and materials themselves.

 

In the PPFA case, we recently filed a reply brief supporting our motion to dismiss the lawsuit. Our brief explains that all of the claims – such as wire fraud, racketeering, and breach of contract – are meritless, so the case should be dismissed. (Two Briefs Filed in Fight to Expose Illegal Abortion Practices; By ACLJ.org; 7/2016)

 

One of the founders of CMP, Troy Newman, has filed a petition with the Supreme Court to win back the First Amendment Right to expose the crimes of Planned Parenthood.

Newman Files Petition with Supreme Court Challenging Gag Order that Bans Sharing Evidence with Law Enforcement

 

PRESS RELEASE

August 4, 2017

ChristianNewsWire.com

 

Contact: Troy Newman, President, 316-683-6790 ext. 111; Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Vice President , 316-516-3034; both with Operation Rescue,  info.operationrescue@gmail.com   

 

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ — Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue and a founding member of the Center for Medical Progress, filed a petition yesterday to the U.S. Supreme Court, challenging the Constitutionality of a preliminary injunction that prohibits the release of undercover videos recorded at National Abortion Federation (NAF) meetings – even to law enforcement when they contain evidence of crimes.

 

The petition, captioned Newman v. National Abortion Federation, states:

 

This Petition stems from an injunction forbidding the voluntary disclosure to law enforcement agencies, other governmental bodies, and the general public of recordings and other information that the enjoined individuals and entities-as well as Congressional investigators-believe are evidence of widespread criminal, illegal, and unethical conduct, including felonies.

 

Newman is represented by Jay Sekulow, who leads Newman’s team of attorneys from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).

 

During Newman’s tenure on the Board of the Center for Medical Progress, the NAF, and later Planned Parenthood, filed suits in a San Francisco Federal Court against Newman and others in an effort to prevent the release of further undercover videos that exposed the illegal trade in aborted baby body parts.

 

And it is little wonder that the NAF would not want the videos released.

 

Newman’s Supreme Court Petition notes that Congressional investigations conducted by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives referred members of the National Abortion Federation and Planned Parenthood to federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies for criminal investigation and prosecution.

 

Newman argues that the enjoined recordings corroborate the determination of the two Congressional investigations, which found evidence that NAF members (including several Planned Parenthood organizations) were engaged in the following criminal conduct:

 

  • Profiting from the sale of fetal organs;

 

  • Altering abortion procedures for financial gain;

 

  • Performing illegal partial-birth abortions;

 

  • Killing newborns who survived attempted abortions;

 

  • Failing to obtain informed consent for fetal tissue donations;

 

  • Violating federal regulations regarding Institutional Review Boards (IRBs); and

 

  • Fraudulent overbilling practices.

 

Newman’s petition further states:

 

It has long been a tenet of Anglo-American jurisprudence that individuals who believe that they have information concerning criminal or illegal activities should be permitted, and encouraged, to voluntarily provide such information to government authorities. Similarly, investigative journalism concerning matters of public concern, including the uncovering of illegal, unethical, or troubling activities, is a constitutionally protected, venerable undertaking.

 

Newman’s unsuccessful appeal to the Ninth Circuit was joined by state 14 Attorneys General, led by Arizona, who are seeking to review the evidence contained in the recordings.

 

As the most important abortion case currently under litigation, Newman v. NAF could have profound implications on the future use of undercover investigative techniques and the ability of law enforcement to gather evidence in criminal investigations.

California Dems Caught in Illegal Collusion?


John R. Houk

© June 28, 2017

 

On June 21, 2017 Judge Christopher Hite dismissed 14 out of 15 charges against whistleblowers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt spearheaded by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.

 

Many in the Pro-Life Movement are very aware this Dem Party Attorney General is a paid tool of Planned Parenthood (PP), the very baby-killing organization exposed as trafficking in baby parts (some of which were born alive than killed) illegally with research organizations.

 

Operation Rescue has acquired documents from the California AG Office showing that Planned Parenthood implying Becerra and PP need to have a meeting to strategize on litigation if the Trump Administration successfully defunds their abortion/murder machine. Operation Rescue also reports the California State Treasurer (State Treasurer John Chiang a Dem**) has already promised $20 million grant to PP in light of being defunded.

 

**John Chiang is one of many California Dems that hate everything President Trump:

 

“Resistance is very narrow, right? It’s a reactive agenda. It’s an abandonment of our greatest hopes and dreams,” Chiang, a 2018 Democratic candidate for governor, said during a seminar sponsored by UCR’s School of Public Policy.

 

… So we should embrace, as Californians and as Americans, our legacy. This is a place where we are the cradle of imagination, of economic innovation, of upward social mobility, of trail-blazing ideas.

 

Chiang’s remarks come as California, where Democrats are politically dominant, is at odds with a GOP-controlled Congress and White House. (Resistance isn’t enough, California Treasurer John Chiang says in UC Riverside speech; By JEFF HORSEMAN; The Press-Enterprise; PUBLISHED 4/19/17 7:05 pm – UPDATED 4/20/17 6:54 am)

 

Chiang’s “resistance” is another example of collusion with PP to keep the baby-killing/baby-parts-trafficking industry in full bloom, why? It is an example of what the Left – particularly Dems – false claim that Leftist values are American Values. NOT THE CASE!**

 

This collusion between the California AG and probably a large chunk  of California Democrats in general has to break some State laws and I’d be surprised if it doesn’t break Federal laws.

 

Just like the National Dems involved in illegal actions, these California Dems need to be investigated and if/when found guilty – LOCKED UP!

Planned Parenthood Desperately Sought Meeting with CA AG to Keep Blood Money for Abortions Flowing

Maimed Women & Dead Babies True Business of PP

Sacramento, CA — New documents obtained by Operation Rescue reveal Planned Parenthood’s attempt to use the State of California as a tool to challenge any potential defunding in the current efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

 

Operation Rescue received the records from the Office of the California Attorney General as the result of a public records request.

 

On March 17, 2017, Celinda Vazquez, Vice President of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, sent an e-mail marked “High” importance to Attorney General Xavier Bacerra [sic], that included a letter from Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California requesting a meeting to discuss “potential litigation in the event of defunding Planned Parenthood.”

 

The letter, signed by Kathy Kneer, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, and Vazquez seemed to summon Bacerra [sic] to a meeting. The letter stated:

 

We write to request a meeting to discuss the potential litigation in the event of defunding Planned Parenthood and the repeal of the American Health Care Act, including the prohibition on abortion coverage.

 

The eight Planned Parenthood affiliate CEOs from across the state would be included in this meeting.

 

For scheduling purposes, please contact Lauren Jeglinski at (email address).

 

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

 

“This letter did not seem to give Bacerra [sic] much of a choice on whether he would attend the meeting. It is obvious that Planned Parenthood is the one really running the State of California,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “It is clear that Planned Parenthood is desperately attempting to preserve their tax funding in any way possible, especially their abortion funding through Medicaid reimbursements, which is a huge cash cow for them.”

 

Perhaps not coincidently, California’s treasurer announced on June 17, 2017, that Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California would receive a $20 million grant in light of Congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

 

“Any lawsuit brought by California against the Congressional defunding of Planned Parenthood is simply political pandering to the abortion cartel without the best interests of the public in mind,” said Newman.

 

In the past 18 months, Operation Rescue has documented 51 medical emergencies requiring emergency treatment and hospitalization at Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide, including the death of at least one patient, Cree Erwin-Shepard, who died from a botched abortion she received last year from the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

 

“Maimed women and dead babies are the true business of Planned Parenthood, and it time that we, as taxpayers, stop propping up this failing abortion business with our hard-earned tax dollars, which could be of real help to women if redirected to legitimate health providers,” said Newman.

Fourteen of 15 Felony Charges Dismissed Against Planned Parenthood Videomakers


San Francisco, CA — Christopher Hite, who spent nearly 18 years as a deputy public defender and was instrumental in developing the San Francisco Public Defender’s racial justice initiatives , was sworn in today as a San Francisco Superior Court judge.

 

California Superior Court Judge Christopher Hite dismissed 14 out of 15 felony charges against Center for Medical Progress (CMP) video makers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt in their exposé of Planned Parenthood baby-murder for research baby parts scheme.

 

Planned Parenthood bought California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and his baby killing benefactor are probably squealing in their exposed hypocrisy of prosecuting the Whistleblowers rather than the actual Planned Parenthood felons.

Below is the Breitbart story of the 14 felony counts against Daleiden and Merritt being tossed.

Fourteen of 15 Felony Charges Dismissed Against Planned Parenthood Videomakers

 

By DR. SUSAN BERRY

Breitbart.com

 

Melissa Farrell Director-Research Planned Parenthood

 

A superior court in California has dismissed 14 of 15 felony charges against the video journalists who exposed alleged profiteering from the sale of body parts of aborted babies within Planned Parenthood and its partners in the biomedical procurement industry.

 

The charges were dismissed against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) – with leave to amend, meaning California Attorney General Xavier Becerra may refile those charges, if he includes more specific facts.

 

Judge Christopher Hite also denied the attorney general’s request for contempt sanctions against Daleiden’s criminal defense counsel, former Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley & Associates (SCA) and his associate, former Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Brentford J. Ferreira.

 

“We were pleased with Judge Hite’s rulings over all,” Cooley and Ferreira said in a statement sent to Breitbart News. “We look forward to further pre-trial litigation.”

 

CMP itself broke the news on Facebook Wednesday:

 

BREAKING: State judge GRANTS most of defendant Daleiden’s and Merritt’s demurrer motions, knocking out the 14 recording charges until the CA AG amends their complaint. The judge also denied the AG’s request for contempt sanctions against David’s defense counsel, and agreed Judge Orrick’s federal gag order in the civil lawsuit should not prevent defendants from using the videos in our defense.

 

Christian News reports the California Department of Justice’s statement on the dismissal:

 

Following the defense’s complaint that there are too many surreptitious recordings to know which ones the California Department of Justice is relying on, the judge requested more specificity in the charging document, specifically to identify the videos that are the basis of the charges. The California Department of Justice has 10 days to amend the complaint and will be making the requested changes.

 

Becerra’s office alleged that Daleiden and Merritt recorded 14 individuals connected to the abortion and fetal tissue industries in Los Angeles, Pasadena, San Francisco, and El Dorado, without their consent.

 

“This is a politically motivated prosecution,” Daleiden told reporters Wednesday. “And this is discriminatory against pro-life Americans and a rally against Californians who happen to have a different point of view.”

 

The explosive videos of the individuals, allegedly discussing how they obtain the highest quality fetal body parts during abortions in order to maximize sales to biotech companies, rocked the nation and set off multiple congressional investigations into the abortion and fetal tissue procurement industries.

 

Becerra, a former Democratic congressman who became attorney general after his predecessor, Kamala Harris, was sworn in as a U.S. senator, said his office “will not tolerate the criminal recording of confidential conversations,” reported the Los Angeles Times.

 

“The right to privacy is a cornerstone of California’s constitution, and a right that is foundational in a free democratic society,” Becerra added.

 

The Los Angeles Times’ editorial board took issue with Becerra’s actions:

 

It’s disturbingly aggressive for Becerra to apply this criminal statute to people who were trying to influence a contested issue of public policy, regardless of how sound or popular that policy may be. Planned Parenthood and biomedical company StemExpress, which was also featured in the videos, have another remedy for the harm that was done to them: They can sue Daleiden and Merritt for damages. The state doesn’t need to threaten the pair with prison time.

 

According to OpenSecrets.org, Becerra received a total of $5,535 from Planned Parenthood during his congressional election bids between 1998 and 2014.

 

Harris is on record as having received $2,600 in 2016 from Planned Parenthood for her Senate race campaign. Additionally, Harris was the recipient of $39,855 from the Abortion Policy/Pro-Abortion Rights lobby group, according to OpenSecrets.org.

 

ElectionTrack.com reported Harris received $15,000 from Planned Parenthood for her attorney general campaign bids.

 

As Breitbart News reported, emails obtained by the Washington Times in September of 2016 showed that Harris’s office collaborated with Planned Parenthood to produce the California legislation criminalizing undercover journalists for publishing and distributing recordings of private communications with abortion providers.

 

According to the Times:

 

The documents are another indication of Ms. Harris‘ close relationship with Planned Parenthood and call into question the impartiality of her ongoing investigation of Mr. Daleiden, legal experts said.

 

The emails show Beth Parker, chief legal counsel for Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, sending multiple drafts of AB 1671 to Jill Habig, who was at the time special counsel to the attorney general.

 

“Attached is the language for AB 1671, proposed amendments to Penal Code section 632,” Ms. Parker wrote in an email marked March 8. “I look forward to your thoughts about this.”

 

Ms. Parker sent a revised draft of the legislation to Ms. Habig on March 16. “Here’s the rewrite of the video tape bill,” she wrote. “Let me know what you think.”

 

Habig later became deputy manager of Harris’ U.S. Senate campaign. The campaign website featured a petition asking voters to support and protect Planned Parenthood’s federal funding.

 

Charges brought against Daleiden and Merritt in Harris County, Texas – under suspicion of bias – were ultimately dropped, however. One of Planned Parenthood’s biotech partners – StemExpress – also backed off a lawsuit against the videomakers.

 

When the felony charges in California were filed, Daleiden said:

 

The bogus charges from Planned Parenthood’s political cronies are fake news. They tried the same collusion with corrupt officials in Houston, TX and failed: both the charges and the DA were thrown out. The public knows the real criminals are Planned Parenthood and their business partners like StemExpress and DV Biologics—currently being prosecuted in California—who have harvested and sold aborted baby body parts for profit for years in direct violation of state and federal law. We look forward to showing the entire world what is on our yet-unreleased video tapes of Planned Parenthood’s criminal baby body parts enterprise, in vindication of the First Amendment rights of all.

 

Though Planned Parenthood has denied any wrongdoing in its alleged sale of body parts, it also announced in October 2015 that it would no longer accept payments for aborted fetal tissue.

 

The organization and its media and political allies continue to insist the CMP videos were “deceptively edited.” However, a Democrat opposition research firm named Fusion – hired by Planned Parenthood itself to review the videos – said while their analysts observed the videos had been edited, “the analysis did not reveal widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation.”

 

Additionally, Fusion noted, “[A]nalysts found no evidence that CMP inserted dialogue not spoken by Planned Parenthood staff.”

 

An analysis by Coalfire, a third-party forensics company hired by Alliance Defending Freedom, found that the videos were “not manipulated” and that they are “authentic.”

 

The Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel have referred Planned Parenthood Federation of America, several of the largest Planned Parenthood affiliates in the country, and three of their business associates in the fetal tissue procurement industry to the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice for criminal prosecution.

Real Crime is Leftist Collusion

What is collusion? Dictionary.com:

1. A secret agreement, especially for fraudulent or treacherous purposes; conspiracy: Some of his employees were in collusion to rob him.

2. Law. A secret understanding between two or more persons to gain something illegally, to defraud another of his or her rights, or to appear as adversaries through in agreement: collusion of husband and wife to obtain a divorce.

 

Testimony after testimony from Intelligence heads and even disgraced Clinton-liar former Director James Comey have said there has been NO collusion between then candidate Donald Trump and Russia to steal the election from proven Crooked Hillary. The Dems have closed their ears so badly to the truth, they keep on propagandize American voters there is an act collusion by President Trump, the Dems just can’t prove it yet.

 

The more provable collusion is between former AG Loretta Lynch telling former FBI Director not to say Crooked Hillary was under investigation. That Lynch directive included using the words “a matter” rather than investigation and a steely stare against Comey when showing the former AG a yet undisclosed document suggesting Crooked Hillary wrong-doing.

 

It is the American Left that gets away with the criminality of collusion in the USA!

 

David Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress (CMP) that released a series of undercover videos demonstrating that Planned Parenthood was killing live-birth babies to deliver the murdered babies intact for research purposes and monetary profit to private research labs.

 

AND YET Planned Parenthood nor the murderous perpetrators have been prosecuted for the crimes. BUT CMP, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt are being criminally persecuted – err I mean prosecuted – for exposing Planned Parenthood crimes.

 

The collusion between Leftist prosecutors and Planned Parenthood has to be a crime, right? Who prosecutes the prosecutors?

 

EVEN WORSE!

 

Now there is ample evidence between a judge adjudicating the trial against Daleiden and Merritt by placing a gag order on showing past and future CMP videos exposing Planned Parenthood criminality! You see, U.S. District Judge William Orrick has been on the Board of Directors of a clinic housing Planned Parenthood operations. Friends this is MORE LEFTIST COLLUSION protecting a Leftist agenda to perpetuate Obama’s agenda to “fundamentally transform America”.

Judge who censored undercover Planned Parenthood videos was on pro-abortion group’s board

U.S. District Judge William Orrick

 

CALIFORNIA, June 9, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) is seeking to disqualify the judge who censored its undercover footage of an abortion conference because of his ties to a pro-Planned Parenthood organization that lets the abortion company run a clinic on its premises.

 

When David Daleiden began releasing his now-famous exposé on the abortion industry’s participation in the baby body parts trade, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) took him to court. Daleiden had undercover recordings of its abortion trade show. NAF succeeded in getting U.S. District Judge William Orrick to issue a gag order preventing the release of this footage.

 

Last month, Daleiden’s attorneys released the footage. Some of the extended footage had already been leaked by Got News, but the video released by the CMP attorneys was more condensed and contained a compilation of the most shocking statements from abortionists at the conference.

 

Orrick then ordered Daleiden and his attorneys, Steve Cooley and Brentford J. Ferreira, to appear in court on June 14. They may face contempt of court charges for having released the video.

 

But CMP is arguing that Orrick should be disqualified from the case because he served on the board of an organization that houses a Planned Parenthood clinic. CMP’s motion to remove Orrick from the case says that Orrick’s affiliation with this organization shows “bias in favor of the plaintiff and prejudice against the defendants.”

 

The organization is Good Samaritan Family Resource Center (GSFRC) in San Francisco. It describes its relationship with Planned Parenthood as a “key partnership.” Orrick is a former GSFRC board member. He was GSRFC’s secretary of the board in 2001 “when GSFRC entered ‘key partnership’ with PPSP [Planned Parenthood],” the motion states.

 

“The video recordings that are the subject of this case include recordings of PPSP/PPNC staff members,” it says.

 

“At no time did Judge Orrick disclose to Defendants that he sat on the board of an organization that had as a ‘key partner’ an organization Defendants alleged, both in public statements and as part of their defense, was involved in violations of state and federal law,” CMP’s motion continues. “Judge Orrick did not disclose his close and long-standing relationship with an organization that houses a facility and hosts Planned Parenthood staff, whom NAF claims are in physical danger from ‘anti-abortion extremists’ incited by Defendants.”

 

The motion goes on to detail Orrick’s wife’s support of abortion on Facebook. Mrs. Orrick “liked” a National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) Facebook post that criticized CMP as “a sham organization run by extremists.”

 

In 2015, “Mrs. Orrick ‘pinkified’ her Facebook page and added ‘I stand with Planned Parenthood’ as a Facebook profile picture overlay.”

 

CMP’s attorneys explained:

 

Planned Parenthood urged its supporters to add these elements to their Facebook pages as part of a campaign orchestrated specifically in response to the release of videos by Mr. Daleiden and CMP. ‘Pinkifying’ showed one’s support for Planned Parenthood and one ’s belief that the videos were fraudulent.

 

Another cause for CMP’s concern is Mrs. Orrick “liked a Facebook Post by ‘Keep America Pro-Choice’ that applauded Mr. Daleiden being indicted in Texas.” It, and the “like” of the NARAL post, “were juxtaposed with a profile photo featuring Judge Orrick and Mrs. Orrick.”

 

As The Federalist‘s Mollie Hemingway uncovered at the time Orrick issued the initial gag order on the video, he is a major financial backer of pro-abortion former President Obama.

 

“He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen,” she reported.

 

He also donated more than $5,000 to GSFRC.

Pro-Life Journalists Seek Appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court in Free Speech, Baby Parts Case


I just finished posting about the extremely questionable prosecution, jailing and exorbitant bail against Sandra Merritt this morning. Then, I go to my email inbox. Lo and behold! I found an email from Operation Rescue reporting the Ninth Circuit of Appeals (located on the Left coast) ruled that the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) undercover obtained videos and recording cannot be turned over to the police EVEN if criminal conduct is reveal!!!!!!

 

“A three-member panel of the liberally activist Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that additional footage obtained through the CMP’s undercover investigations – even those recordings that contain evidence of criminal conduct committed by Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation officials – cannot be released to law enforcement personnel. A requested review by the full Ninth Circuit was denied.”

What is our nation coming to when even the Judicial Branch condones lawlessness in the name of protecting the Leftist transformative agenda that has hammered into American thought?

 

Here is the Operation Rescue article that was linked in my email alert.

Pro-Life Journalists Seek Appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court in Free Speech, Baby Parts Case

 

By DeAnn Flanagan

May 8, 2017

Operation Rescue

 

San Francisco, CA – The Center for Medical Progress and its founding members, including Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, are seeking to appeal a draconian Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court in order to protect the First Amendment Rights of journalists to report to law enforcement evidence of crimes contained in undercover recordings.

 

A three-member panel of the liberally activist Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that additional footage obtained through the CMP’s undercover investigations – even those recordings that contain evidence of criminal conduct committed by Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation officials – cannot be released to law enforcement personnel. A requested review by the full Ninth Circuit was denied.

 

The ruling is related to a federal lawsuit, National Abortion Federation v. CMP, et al, that was filed in 2015 after the CMP released several videos showing Planned Parenthood executives haggling over top dollar to illegally sell aborted baby organs and tissue. The NAF sought to block the further release of possibly incriminating videos.

 

Attorneys for the American Center for Law and Justice are representing Newman in that case.

 

A joint motion filed May 5, 2017, is seeking a stay of the Ninth Circuit’s mandate pending the filing of a certiorari petition with the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

The motion states that the court wrongly upheld a “prior restraint” on CMP’s First Amendment speech, which had captured great public interest. The undercover videos were also the subject of investigations by House and Senate panels that later referred Planned Parenthood organizations to the U.S. Department of Justice and state Attorneys General for further criminal investigation and prosecution.

 

“Prior restraints are ‘the most serious and least tolerable infringement of First Amendment Rights,’” stated the motion to stay.

 

So radical was the Ninth Circuit’s ruling that the pro-life leaders’ defense attorneys argued:

 

Outside the context of trade secrets and classified information, no federal court – other than now this Court – has upheld an order suppressing information of high public interest based simply on the agreement of the parties to do so. Other federal courts have declined to put the weight of their contempt power behind the enforcement of private agreements to defeat the public’s right to know.

 

“In a case of critical importance to free speech rights, the Ninth Circuit has wrongly barred pro-life citizen journalists from reporting crimes and submitting evidence to law enforcement. Instead, the Court has opted to protect the ability of the NAF and Planned Parenthood to conceal possible criminal activity,” said Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Vice President, Operation Rescue. “The rogue Ninth Circuit has showed their penchant for liberal, pro-abortion judicial activism once again, and we look forward to the U.S. Supreme Court once again overturning one of their grossly unconstitutional decisions.”

 

Order denying appeal to full Ninth Circuit.


Defense Motion to Stay Mandate pending SCOTUS filing.
