    WBAY.COM ^ | 29 JULY 2015 | AP
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Planned Parenthood has asked the government’s top health scientists to convene a panel of independent experts to study the issues surrounding fetal tissue research. The request comes as Planned Parenthood is under criticism from Republican lawmakers in the wake of videos released by anti-abortion activists. The videos, which the organization says are highly edited, are of Planned Parenthood officials talking about providing fetal tissue to researchers.

    CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago man who served 17 years in prison for murder before being cleared of the crime has been shot and killed almost three years after being released from prison, police said Wednesday. Alprentiss Nash, 40, was fatally shot Tuesday after an argument during "a drug deal gone bad" between Nash and his attacker, Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. He said a suspect was in custody and charges were pending Wednesday afternoon. The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said Nash died of multiple gunshot wounds. Guglielmi said two weapons were recovered, one belonging to the suspect...

    October 26, 2012 (Bound4Life.com) - Hey, America, do you know what you’re funding when your taxes go to “women’s health” via Planned Parenthood? You think I’m going to say abortion, don’t you? I don’t actually need to say that since you’d have to be brain dead not to know that part. But how about to Barack Obama’s re-election? Wait, you say! Not us! We give my money to Planned Parenthood because women’s health is important. Our tax dollars should support this crucial organization. Government grants and funding to Planned Parenthood in the last reported year, 2009-2010, was $487.4 million —...

    Scott Walker has insisted he will be able to “compete anywhere in the country” as a candidate for president — but, at a private event in St. Louis on Sunday, Walker said he does not plan to compete in Florida, contradicting his own public assertions that he would not skip that primary. During a fundraiser at the St. Louis home of Rex Sinquefield, Missouri’s most active Republican donor, Walker reasoned that it “doesn't make a ton of sense for him to pour cash into Florida” with Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio in the race, said one person who was present...

So that's what I know but I'll defer to others for commenting on that video and whatever videos they're pumping out there."

    The immigration plan proposed by the Gang of Eight would have dispensed more than 30 million green cards in its first ten years. A green card is an immigration document that authorizes immigrants to collect welfare and become voting citizens, among other things. In a recent but overlooked interview on MSNBC’s Up With Steve Kornacki, Sen. Schumer (D-NY) explained how he was personally responsible for “recruiting” Sen. Rubio to flood the U.S. labor markets: “I recruited Marco Rubio to be part of our group of eight being in the gym. [Democratic Senator] Dick Durbin was in the gym… and he...

    A 14-year-old Palestinian girl has garnered international attention recently after being brought to tears by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who told the young girl that her family may be deported because Germany "can't manage" everyone coming from refugee camps. And now she's back in the headlines after telling German paper Die Welt her feelings on Israel: My hope is that at some time, [Israel] is no longer there, but only Palestine. This country should no longer be called Israel, but Palestine. It is reported that Reem Sahwil, quoted above, was born in a refugee camp in Lebanon but currently...

    MSNBC ^ | July 29, 2015 | By Adam Howard
    Action movie mogul Michael Bay’s latest bid for critical respectability may come at Hillary Clinton’s expense. Bay, who has been the brains behind blockbuster franchises including “Transformers” and “Bad Boys” has turned the tragic 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi into a big budget thriller. And if its first trailer is any indication, it won’t depict the former secretary of state’s handling of the incident in a flattering light. “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” – which is based on a non-partisan, non-fiction book by Mitchell Zuckoff – aims to be a ripped-from-the-headlines portrayal of the...

    Calling next week’s Senate roll call to defund Planned Parenthood a “legislative show vote,” GOP firebrand Ted Cruz said Republicans should do everything they can to eliminate federal money for the group — even if it means a government shutdown fight this fall. He’s not alone. On Wednesday afternoon, 18 House Republicans told leadership that they “cannot and will not support any funding resolution … that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood.” Meanwhile, GOP social conservatives like Sens. James Lankford of Oklahoma and Jeff Sessions of Alabama said they’d consider supporting an effort to attach a spending rider that would...

    France's air crash investigation agency is studying a piece of plane debris found on Reunion Island off the east coast of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean for possible links to missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, a spokesman said on Wednesday. A person familiar with the matter told Reuters the part was almost certainly from a Boeing 777 but that it had not yet been established if it came from MH370. A U.S. official said air safety investigators had a "high degree of confidence" the debris was from the same model as MH370, the Associated Press reported. No trace has been...

    As I read the reports of the killing of the famous Hwange National Park lion, Cecil, by an American client, hunting with a licensed professional hunter, I anticipated a rerun of the Musango Bull incident of a couple of years back. The bull elephant was another rock star of an attraction - in the Matusadona national park. He too was radio collared and he was shot by a sport hunter outside the park. There was within days the anticipated media frenzy over both the Bull and Cecil, but it turned out the two cases were markedly different. One element that...

    t's time to think about what has previously been in the realm of the unthinkable: Donald Trump might just become the Republican nominee for president. Two months ago, that statement would have elicited nothing but a big old belly laugh from just about anyone who pays any attention to politics. Nowadays, though, nobody's laughing. The very concept has moved from the surreal to the possible. So it's time to actually think about what it would mean for the country and for the Republican Party. Trump, we were all assured by the inside-the-Beltway media crowd, was going to be nothing more...

They should be in front of Planned Parenthood,” said Patmon, who is African-American. Patmon, along with state officials, representatives from the Ohio Right to Life, and other pro-life groups spoke during the rally, urging action against Planned Parenthood on the heels of the...

    One of the largest public relations firms in Washington D.C. circulated a memo Monday night urging members of the media to refrain from airing damning videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of organs and tissue of aborted fetuses. Politico is reporting that Planned Parenthood hired SKDKnickerbocker to help manage blowback from the videos, which were produced by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress. According to Politico, SKDKnickerbocker sent the memo to unnamed “reporters and producers” asking them to blackball the videos — the third of which was released on Tuesday. “The extremists who entered Planned Parenthood labs under...

    What If Planned Parenthood Was Law-Abiding? by Daniel Clark Public outrage over the undercover videos of Planned Parenthood by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress has been driven largely by PP’s apparent admissions of illegal activities. It’s plain to see that the population control organization is involved in the illegal marketing of fetal body parts, and its senior medical director, Deborah Nucatola, basically admitted that the abortionists are still using the partial-birth procedure that has been illegal since 2003. Mary Gatter, another PP medical director, ghoulishly suggested “using a less crunchy technique to get more whole specimens,” even though it...

    A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers. The group is the same one that previously shot viral covert video of a Planned Parenthood leader discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research. The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking StemExpress officials taken at a restaurant in May. It appears to be the first legal action prohibiting the release of a video from the organization.

    Billionaire Donald Trump has taken a commanding lead in the race for the 2016 U.S. Republican presidential nomination with the support of 25 percent in a Reuters/Ipsos poll, giving him a double-digit advantage over nearest rival Jeb Bush. The poll shows Bush, the former Florida governor, trailing at 12 percent. It is a huge jump for Trump, who announced his candidacy for the November 2016 election six weeks ago - and this despite the criticism political rivals leveled at him for remarks this month belittling the military service of Senator John McCain, the party's candidate in 2008. -snip- Trump, a...

    Pinstriped sage Yogi Berra has been credited with the observation that “you can learn a lot by watching.” Alas, such wisdom is wasted on Mayor Putz. Asked why he wasn’t at the unveiling of the glitzy plan for LaGuardia Airport with Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Vice President Joe Biden and other officials, the mayor offered a revealing response: He only goes to events where he’s invited to speak. OK, we get it. De Blasio’s war with Cuomo continues, and because the gov wouldn’t let him near the microphone, the mayor boycotted the event rather than fume in silence. I think we...

    Barack Obama is a fundamentally dishonest man. I have stated here repeatedly that I believe him to be a sociopath– not unlike Frank Underwood in House of Cards and I am more convinced of it every time Obama speaks. His endless lying about the ACA is the stuff of legend but what really stands out is his sheer audacious mendacity. When asked if he mislead the country about the ACA, Obama said unequivocally: “No. I did not.” Barack Obama is a bald faced liar. And he just can’t stop. The other night Obama appeared on the TV show of his...
