Posted on 04/03/2010 3:33:40 AM PDT by Kaslin
Canadians hosted hundreds of American air passengers whose planes were grounded on 9/11. They opened their hearts and their homes to us. During the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979-81, fearless Canadian diplomats in Tehran helped smuggle out of that maddened country endangered Americans.
None of that seemed to matter this week. Not content with putting an end to Americas historic special relationship with Britain, nor with bullying the U.S. only reliable ally in the Mideast, Israel, the Obama administration has launched an attack on our Northern neighbor, Canada. Their unguided missile landed squarely on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. It was Hillary.
Oh, my! Even the very liberal Toronto Globe and Mail felt the sting of Madam Secretarys tongue-lashing. It was the third time in a two-day visit to Canada that...Clinton gave Canadian hosts a headache, writes Campbell Clark. Short work. But then, she was always capable of giving us three headaches in one day.
Clinton publicly rebuked the Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Harper wants to make maternal health the centerpiece of Canadas initiative at the next G8 summit.
What could be wrong with that? Canada famously cares about her role in international humanitarian efforts. Canadians race to be first on the scene at international disasters like the recent Haitian earthquake or the Asian tsunami of 2004. Canadians can be justly proud of their record.
But Madam Secretary wasted no time in kicking the props out from under the Harper humanitarian initiative. You cannot have maternal health without reproductive health, she bluntly informed her Canadian hosts. And reproductive health includes contraception and family planning and access to legal, safe abortion.
Now, this is curious. When she was First Lady (ah, those were the days), Hillary Clinton said abortion is wrong. (Newsweek, October 31, 1994) Now that she is Secretary of State in the most avidly pro-abortion administration in U.S. history, she not only thinks America must have abortion-on-demand, paid for by U.S. taxpayers, but she also thinks the Canadians should be scolded in their own capital city if they fail to promote abortion throughout the world.
This is also interesting, isnt it, as a reflection on the just-passed ObamaCare bill? A number of formerly pro-life Democrats fell for the offer of an Executive Order on taxpayer funding of abortion. President Obama was the most pro-abortion state senator in history, the most pro-abortion U.S. Senator in history.
Still, these credulous Members of Congress somehow thought he would give them a fig leaf so they could vote for his signature piece of legislation. Did they know that this administration believes you cannot have maternal health...without abortion? Were they prepared to deny coverage for maternal health? Of course not.
So, in her most undiplomatic diplomatic visit, Hillary Clinton gave the lie to the notion that ObamaCare does not include taxpayer funding for abortion. Not here. Not in Canada, not anywhere in the world.
Abortion is central to everything in life and how we want to live it, said the late liberal leader Lawrence Lader. Lader, along with Dr. Bernard Nathanson, founded NARAL, the abortion advocacy group. Nathanson famously repented, filmed The Silent Scream, and has become a devout pro-life Catholic. Lader never yielded an inch.
It used to be the case that major Democratic candidates were expected to visit Israel, Italy, and Ireland. The Three Is, it was called. That was to undergird their appeal to large minorities in the U.S.--Jews, Italians, and Irish.
But now, liberals must go hat in hand to NARAL and Planned Parenthood. And if that causes trouble with our traditional allies on the international scene--allies as staunch and courageous as Canada, so be it. To be true to her mission to the North, Madam Secretarys limo should have borne the flag she is actually serving--the Jolly Roger.
“Hillary Invades Canada!”
They should repel the invader with prejudice.
Two diametrically opposed positions can only be reconciled by an individual possessing no moral compass. This entire administration, top to bottom, cannot discern between good and evil and it appears it wouldn't matter to them even if they could.
If there is a war, I’ll join the Canadian army.
What! No outcry & demonstrations similar to Coulter’s visit?
You are our friend and good neighbor.
Politely show Hillary the door and slam it shut firmly.
“Most Hated Woman in America”
nearly elected President and is now our Sec of State ....
Now there’s a headline you’ll never see.
I wonder how many voters even remember 1993 and 1994.
“That woman is just stalking my husband, she is just making all this up. and there is a vast right wing conspiracy out there that is out to get us!!!” And the other 8 women (that we know of) that Bill groped or raped, they’re all making it up too!!!! And the woman who left the country in fear, she is making it up too!!!
And “They were shooting at us on the tarmac in Bosnia !!!”
And: “I’m named after the famous NZ mountain climber Edmund Hillary”
Need I go on?
Canada: take her, please, we give her to you,
with our apologies.
Ditto and Bump.
This article is filled with oxymorons. probably because they are the speaking points of real morons.
How can abortion be Reproductive? Killing babies is not reproduction.
Abortion is central to life?? Geez: Since when? Abortion is death.
Central to life and how we want to live it. Perhaps so if we want to go around getting knocked up and then killing the results of our actions.
Maternal health .Maternal means mother. You cannot be maternal and kill your babies.
Hillary is not a woman, she may have the ophysical attributes as ugly as they are on her, but no real woman could lack all of the female feelings of warmth for the unborn. Sometimes I wonder how many abortions she has had.
If she has had none then is she qualified to speak for abortion?
What? And push her back here?
Evidently Hillary has not been fully redeemed - not yet.
Her husband, however, Bill Clinton - well, God is working mightily in his life. I saw him testifying before Congress about the work his charity is doing in terms of improving healthcare in Africa, especially, and HE was talking about how it was necessary to end corruption in this nations in order for the full benefit of the funds given to these causes to reap their greatest benefit!
Then he went on to tell in detail how his “mission” of saving babies in Africa through helping get all these new resources to the mothers-to-be and then to the mothers of newborns - (not for abortion but to SAVE THE LIVES OF THESE CHILDREN)....IT WAS MOST MOVING!
Bill Gates was also talking before that panel and his work for the sick and for for children and to end disease through providing clean water, all kinds of vaccines which are now becoming available - and to help economic development - from the gound up - in these nations was nothing but awe inspiring! (God is at work in the life of Bill Gates also!)
As one of the most vocal “Bubba Bashers” from way back - I never thought I would be saying this about Bill Clinton - but God has saved him, redeemed him, and is working through him for some mighty works for good in this world.....
I know George W Bush and his family have been praying for Bill (and Hillary) Clinton for a long while. I just started praying for them recently - but am sure many Chirstians the world over have been doing this.
God has answered those prayers! (for both of them but sometimes the full redemption takes a bit of time...)
More proof that God is working in so many amazing ways - in these days as the day of Jesus’ return for His beloveds draws so near - and we have NO reason to be afraid or to fear anything.
The Bitc- of Kosovo strikes a friendly ally North of the border!
