    "More children from the fit; less from the unfit—that is the chief issue of birth control." [1] –Margaret Sanger, Birth Control Review Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, has an ignoble legacy as a racist who addressed the Ku Klux Klan and initiated a Negro Project to reduce the population of poor, uneducated African Americans whom she considered unfit to reproduce themselves. This Margaret Sanger—the real Margaret Sanger—is completely whitewashed in Parenthood propaganda, which deceitfully portrays Sanger as a champion of reproductive “choice.” Even more incriminating than Sanger’s racism, however, is her close association with Nazism. Sanger was part...

    Editor's note: This following is an excerpt from "The Big Lie," Dinesh D'Souza's latest book, released today.Racism and xenophobia: this is the hot-button charge. Every comparison between Trump and the Nazis goes here. Elizabeth Warren explains Trump’s rise as the product of “an ugly stew of racism.” Historian James Whitman warns that “white nationalism lives in the White House.” Jeet Heer charges in the New Republic that Trump’s “racism and xenophobia” display his “fascist roots” that are not his alone but “lie in the Republican Party.” Along the same lines, leftist writer Michael Tomasky traces a “direct and indisputable”...

  • Democrat Mary Ann Marsh (and others) lie about James O'Keefe being a felon

    Democrat apologist Mary Ann Marsh was on O'Reilly with Monica Crowley last night and lied about James O'Keefe being a "conviced felon" when asked about the Project Veritas videos. Skip to 2:30 and watch how she delivers her prepared speech smearing O'Keefe. This is at least the 2nd time I've heard this smear and I decided to "fact check" O'Keefe's legal record. Here are the facts, according to "The Hill" (no friend to O'Keefe): "Conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe was sentenced to three years of probation, 100 hours of community service and a $1,500 fine after he pleaded guilty on Wednesday...

In relation to that case, he was charged and found guilty of evading arrest. He was also charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon, reckless driving, and assaulting his wife, but these charges were later dismissed. Here...

    Greg Nash Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) submitted a letter of resignation from Congress on Wednesday that laid out his plan to remain as a member through October 3. The letter, sent a day after a jury convicted him of 23 corruption charges, was quickly ripped by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who called on Democratic leaders to join him in demanding Fattah's immediate resignation. "Mr. Fattah has betrayed the trust of this institution and the people of Pennsylvania, and for that he should resign immediately from the House of Representatives," Ryan said in a statement he tweeted out Wednesday. "We...

    With one day to go in the U.S. presidential election, Obama's probability of winning has reached 86%, according to New York Times polling guru Nate Silver. Betting markets Intrade and Betfair also show the President maintaining a strong (but less extreme) lead. These assessments come despite the continued release of some polls that look good for Romney. The difference between the national polls and the betting markets, some polling experts say, is that the national polls focus on the popular vote, whereas Silver's odds focus on state-by-state polls aimed at determining the winner of the electoral college and, with it,...

    Van Jones was President Obama's special adviser for "green" jobs when he was hit with a wave of criticism from conservative pundits about his past associations. The controversy forced him to leave his post in September 2009, but it wasn't the last we'd hear of him. That same conservative wave went on to make a major splash in Congress through the Tea Party. Jones decided to fight back, founding a group called the "American Dream Movement." Some people call Jones' group a liberal version of the Tea Party. His inspiration, he tells weekends on All Things Considered host Guy Raz,...

    Click here to find out more! When asked about the significance of her daughter, Chelsea, marrying Marc Mezvinsky, who is Jewish, and thus being married in an interfaith union, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded, “Over the years, so many of the barriers that prevented people from getting married, crossing lines of faith or color or ethnicity have just disappeared.” True, the barriers have disappeared, but serious difficulties remain. While some scholars argue that mixed-faith unions “serve as a refiner’s fire” that make the relationships stronger, the statistical evidence indicates this is all too frequently not the outcome. The American...

    Van Jones in February 2009, just before he was appointed the "Green Jobs" Czar gave this talk at Berkley. It is clear that he is selling the idea of hitching the destruction of Capitalism to taking a "Green" approach to the "System." Its a little under 5 minutes. Watch and understand why Glen has kept hammering on the question of why is this guy an adviser to the President? Amazing.

    A psychologist raised in Frayser and trained in South America, Morgan had been rejected twice by the state's psychology licensing board because of his academic record. But Morgan found a powerful ally in then-state Sen. John Ford, who pushed through legislation that forced regulators to hand Morgan a license to practice, according to an examination by The Commercial Appeal. That carefully tailored 1998 law has privately troubled psychology professionals for years yet remained unknown to the larger public. The newspaper uncovered the matter following Morgan's indictment last month. Federal prosecutors contend Morgan offered Ford money in 2005 for legislation that...

    It's been 30 years since the last bombs fell during the Vietnam War, and longtime peace activist Peter Yarrow says it's about time that America apologizes. The singer-songwriter from the 1960s folk group Peter, Paul and Mary has grown gray, but his passion to fight for those affected by the war remains fervent. During his first trip to Vietnam this week, he told The Associated Press that the war wounds of the United States won't heal until the nation makes amends — a process he believes should involve helping Vietnamese suffering from the ill health effects of Agent Orange, a...

    BOSTON — Putting John Kerry in the White House is the immediate goal of the Democratic Party, but this year's election has a broader purpose, former San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros said today. "It is a foundational election in which we build for the future," Cisneros told members of the Texas media this morning before addressing the state delegation breakfast. "To me, that's the most important part of what this year's about." The message resonated with Democrats on the final day of the convention and comes at a critical time. The Democratic Party long has been criticized for lacking unity...

    Could dynamic leader one day return to public life? Let's hope so. It's an ancient, wheezy saw that has long since attained cliche status, but, as is the case with so many cliches, there is an irreducible kernel of truth at its center: "Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: It might have been." The line came to mind almost automatically on the occasion of an appearance here Monday by former San Antonio Mayor (and former Clinton administration secretary of Housing and Urban Development). Personal indiscretions resulted in his exit from politics years ago -...
