  • Dr. Manny (Alvarez): The Supreme Court decision on Texas abortions is dangerous

    Fox News ^ | June 29, 2015 | Dr. Manny Alvarez
    I completely disagree with the Supreme Court decision to block Texas from enforcing restrictions on abortion clinics that would force 10 centers in the state to close. Let me be clear, the regulations that were being placed on these clinics were mainly focused on enforcing safety and guidelines for a very delicate procedure. What the state of Texas is asking for is that these independent clinics performing these procedures be held to the same clinical standards as any other surgical center in the country. In other words, the regulations would have mandated that these clinics have of all the tools...

    In Kansas, Shawnee County District Court Judge Larry Hendricks issued an order blocking that state’s ban on abortions carried out by tearing the baby limb-from-limb while still in the womb. The Judge’s order came in response to a lawsuit filed by the New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights on behalf of Dr. Herbert Hodes and Dr. Traci Nauser—a father-daughter team of abortionists. “To allow this law to go into effect while the matter is being litigated would deprive the plaintiffs of their livelihood,” Hendricks said. “It would inflict irreparable harm and injury to their recognized right to ply their trade.”...

    Professors who rail against the imprisonment of blacks rarely show as much interest in black victims of crime. “In 1980, there were 500,000 Americans in prison or jail,” Jason Stanley writes in The Chronicle Review. “By 2013, there were more than 2.3 million.” “The explosion in incarceration has fallen disproportionately on the descendants of slaves. White Americans are 77 percent of the U.S. population, and black Americans 13 percent. Yet more blacks are incarcerated than whites.” Stanley is a philosophy professor at Yale. His conclusions resemble those of 20 scholars who recently completed a study under the auspices of the...
  • Judge Blocks Ban on Dismemberment Abortion On Grounds It Creates An Obstacle for Women

    A district judge in Kansas blocked the state’s ban on “dismemberment abortion” – the first ban of its kind in the United States – on the grounds that prohibiting the procedure would create an “obstacle” for women who want to terminate their pregnancies with brutal dismemberment. Dismemberment is a late-term abortion procedure in which an unborn, living baby is torn to pieces and removed from the uterus. The new law would have prohibited abortionists from using forceps, clamps, scissors and other instruments to cut the unborn baby into pieces prior to removing its remains from the uterus. Lawmakers in Kansas...

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Thursday credited the civil rights movement for breaking down barriers and bringing the South into the modern world. Thanks to the efforts of activists, the South renewed itself and became attractive to investors and others. And now, in the wake of last week’s mass shooting at Emanuel AME Church, Jackson sees an opportunity to address the systemic problems that have persisted since the 1960s.

    London Telegraph ^ | June 25th, 2015 | reasonmclucus
    American journalists are partly to blame for the recent racist shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, because they continue to perpetuate the old southern racist myth that black Americans are a separate “race” from white Americans. Journalists seem to support the “one drop rule” or “part black all black”. For example, they continue to refer to Asian ancestry golfer Tiger Woods as “African American” even though his mother has Asian and Dutch ancestry and his father has Asian, European and North American ancestry as well as African ancestry. These racist journalists even refer to a child who has a black parent...

    Well, here we go, one more time. Someone is murdered and the usual suspects get dusted off and taken from the closet to be regurgitated back and forth making sound but accomplishing nothing. Of course the first thing is always gun control, but this time race was the watchword singled out because everyone knows gun control won’t get to first base with Congress. No one mentions the black on black crime that is murdering more people than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. The Second Amendment is a well established part of our Constitution from the very beginning of...

    A Richmond police officer shot one of the department's K-9 officers on Tuesday morning after the dog bit him, authorities said. Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said the act was in self-defense. She said the dog, a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois, bit the officer just before 7 a.m. in the parking lot of the Richmond Police Department. The K-9’s handler left his car with the dog still in it to go inside the station for a meeting, police said. The dog somehow got out of the car and bit another police officer in civilian clothes. The officer who was attacked, a four-year veteran...

    Pope: Why didn't Allies bomb railway lines to Auschwitz?   There's no secret about it, you just have to read the history:  IG Farben, was the monstrous German chemical collective, chiefly composed of Bayer, BASF and Hoechst, (maker today through its French, Roussel Uclaf subsidiary of RU-486 human pesticide just as Farben used Cyclone/Zyklon B to dispose of death-factory inmates). Farben received 100 tons of tetra-ethyl lead no-knock compound from Rockefeller's Standard Oil without which the blitzkrieg would have been impossible, in exchange for licensing of some of Farben's extremely valuable, fabulously profitable patents.  Farben was the original invention factory, for example,...

    Belgium passed its Euthanasia Act in 2002. A study published in this month’s Journal of Medical Ethics by Raphael Cohen-Almagor revealed that despite the law’s requirement that patients voluntarily give their consent to the procedure, many are euthanized without giving consent. The decision to euthanize was not discussed with the patient in nearly 80% of the cases of patients over 80 years old. Dr. Pierre Tueur estimated that “I have probably performed more than 300 of these procedures on patients incapable of giving informed consent. In cases where the patient is unconscious, demented, or unreasonably frightened of death, I feel...

Last night Clinton told host John Ralston, “We have to have a candid national conversation about race, and about discrimination, prejudice, hatred. The people who do this kind of dastardly, horrible act are a very small percentage. But unfortunately public discourse is sometimes hotter and more negative than it should be, which can, in my opinion, trigger people who is less than stable to do something like this.”Clinton continued, “I think we have to speak out against it.

    Fair enough. Let’s almost not execute him. This seems to answer the lingering question of what was running through this degenerate’s mind while he sat through a Bible study meeting with a group of people he intended to murder in cold blood. I was thinking about that last night and couldn’t recall another case where a terrorist spent time getting to know his victims in an intimate setting before opening fire. To the extent you can understand the mind of a mass murderer, you would think dehumanization of the target is key. And the easiest way to dehumanize is to...

    A study published this month in the Journal of Medical Ethics examined the “deliberate” euthanasia of patients in Belgium without their explicit, voluntary consent as required by law. The study’s author, Raphael Cohen-Almagor, a professor of philosophy and ethics at the United Kingdom’s Hull University, found that life-ending drugs were used “with the intention to shorten life and without explicit request” in 1.7 percent of all deaths in Belgium in 2013. In 52.7 percent of these cases, the patients were 80 years of age or older. The decision to euthanize was not discussed with the patient in 77.9 percent of...

    Liberals up to and including the president are already using the tragedy at the SC church to try to advance gun control, so it begs the question, what gun control law would have prevented the tragedy? Assault weapon bans are a favorite of anti gunners basically because they are scary looking and have large magazines. Yet reports say Roof reloaded up to 5 times. Clearly a new AWB would not have prevented the massacre. What about universal registration? The answer is simple, it wouldn't. Universal registration is only valuable to the police to track the last person who bought the...

Wednesday night, a 21-year-old sandy blonde-haired white man with blue jeans and Timberland boots walked into a historically black church in Charleston, S.C. and killed 9 people.  That’s a horrible, murderous act, made worse by the fact that the man is still at large. The New York Times reported S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s statement about the tragedy.

Tewana Sullivan, 51, pleaded guilty but mentally ill to second-degree murder charges last month in connection with the death of Cheryl Livy, 66, in Livy’s Livonia apartment on Oct. 22, 2014.

In a report titled, “The Negro Family: The Case for Action,” Assistant Secretary of Labor Moynihan, warned that the deterioration of the black family, would result in soaring crime rates if it continued unchecked. In the most famous passage of the 1965 report, Moynihan, who would later become a Democratic U.S. senator, wrote, “From the wild Irish slums of the 19th-century Eastern seaboard, to the riot-torn suburbs of Los...

    Over the course of the last half-century, the media has botched its coverage of numerous high profile crimes.

    Thousands of pregnancy centers across the nation are the counterbalance to the abortion industry by providing women with tangible help and real alternatives to abortion. But pregnancy centers in California may soon find themselves forced to promote abortions under legislation pending in the California legislature. The state Assembly has passed AB 775, the Pregnancy Counseling Discrimination Rule, would require all pregnancy centers to promote abortions to their clients. There is no conscience clause or opt out for centers that provide pregnant women assistance without abortions or abortion referrals. Failure to comply carries a $500 fine for first offense and $1,000...

    Politics: President Obama removed Cuba as a state sponsor of terror Friday, forgetting the dictatorship's long record of killing, smuggling and, yes, terror. If this is the new standard, why not just scrap the list entirely? The lifting of Cuba from the list of nations that support terrorism was a farce that may well come back to the haunt the United States. After all, the ruling Castro regime that benefits from it in the name of normal relations with the U.S. and new access to World Bank loans is the same regime that once tried the first 9/11, aligning itself...

    Authorities in the nation's capital say more than one person is responsible for the slayings of four people inside a Washington mansion last week. A fugitive task force arrested Daron Dylon Wint Thursday night, and took five people who were with him into custody. Wint is the only person currently charged with the murder of Savvas Savopoulos; his wife Amy; their 10-year-old son, Philip; and their housekeeper, Veralicia Figueroa. But a court document suggests investigators aren't done making arrests. It says "the crimes described in this affidavit required the presence and assistance of more than one person."
