Court Bars Release Of New Planned Parenthood Videos

Plus, the Texas Attorney General’s office has received more Planned Parenthood videos.

But first there’s this from a cheering Associated Press:

Court bars anti-abortion group from releasing new videos

By CHRISTINE ARMARIO | July 29, 2015

LOS ANGELES – 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 released three covertly shot videos 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…

It would also appear to be what the lawyers call ‘the prior restraint of free speech.’ Which is supposed to be unconstitutional.

NYT: Killer Of Cecil Is Now Target Of Internet Vigilantism

And yet the NYT had no problem when the online vigilantes were doing this sort of thing to Scott Walker or George Zimmerman or Officer Darryl Wilson.

From the New York Times:

Killer of Cecil the Lion Finds Out That He Is a Target Now, of Internet Vigilantism

By CHRISTINA CAPECCHI and KATIE ROGERS | July 29, 2015

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Two signs posted on the door of a nondescript dental office here asked passers-by to mourn the death of Cecil, a lion who was lured off his sanctuary and killed during a game hunt this month in Zimbabwe. “WE ARE CECIL,” one read; “#CatLivesMatter,” read another. Nearby was a sign with a darker message for the dentist who said he killed the cat: “ROT IN HELL.” …

The outrage and attention surrounding the lion’s death online caused Dr.

Judge Rails At Illegal Arrested for Murder, Rape Attempt

How can you have an effective criminal justice system with untold millions of people running around with no IDs or fake ones? Anyway, this judge will probably be brought up on charges.]

From Breitbart:

Judge Unloads on Illegal Alien Arrested for Murder, Attempted Rape

By Katie McHugh | July 29, 2015

Ohio Judge Michael A. Cicconetti unloaded on an illegal alien from Mexico, furious that suspect Juan Emmanual [sic] Razo had no identification on him when he appeared before court on Monday. Razo allegedly murdered Margaret “Peggy” Kostelnik in her home, tried to rape his 14-year-old niece in a local park, and shot another woman walking with two children in the arm.

“Does he have a passport?” he asked. The taxpayer-funded translator relayed the question and Razo shook his head.

DHS Says It’s Not At Fault In Illegal’s Murder Of Woman

How handy. All an illegal aliens needs to do is not cooperate, not carry any ID, and never be fingerprinted and play dumb, and you don’t ever have to worry about being taken into custody by the Border Patrol.

From the Daily Caller:

DHS Deflects Blame In Case Of Illegal Alien Accused Of Murdering 60-Year-Old Ohio Woman

By Chuck Ross | July 29, 2015

The Department of Homeland Security is seeking to shift blame for the failure to detain an illegal alien who was briefly apprehended by sheriff’s deputies in Ohio three weeks ago and is now accused of murdering a 60-year-old woman during a crime spree on Monday.

On Wednesday, a spokeswoman for DHS told The Daily Caller that Lake County sheriff’s deputies had declined an offer to personally interview the illegal alien, 35-year-old Juan Emmanuel Razo-Ramirez, during a suspicious person stop on July 7.

University Of Cincinnati Cop Indicted On Murder Charges

Has Obama made a statement warning about how we need to guard against a backlash against the police? Has he pointed out that this university police officer was only acting in the name of law enforcement, that he doesn’t actually represent real law enforcement?

From a surprisingly restrained Associated Press:

Ohio cop indicted on murder charge in traffic stop shooting

By LISA CORNWELL | July 29, 2015

CINCINNATI (AP) — A University of Cincinnati police officer who shot a motorist during a traffic stop over a missing front license plate was indicted Wednesday on a murder charge, with a prosecutor saying the officer "purposely killed him" and "should never have been a police officer." Hamilton County prosecutor Joe Deters announced the grand jury indictment at a news conference to discuss developments in the investigation into the July 19 shooting of motorist Samuel DuBose by Officer Ray Tensing.

GOP: This Is 2nd Most Effective GOP Congress In History

But first, the House Republicans have decided their vacation is more important than defunding Planned Parenthood.

From Breitbart:

House Leaves for Recess With No Vote to Defund Planned Parenthood

By Dr. Susan Berry | July 29, 2015

Washington, DC – The House is leaving for its summer recess until September 8 without voting on legislation to defund Planned Parenthood… Thousands of Americans participated in rallies across the nation Tuesday to urge their state and federal lawmakers to investigate and defund Planned Parenthood in the wake of the revelations in the videos.

The public will just have to let their views be known when these Representatives go home. That is, if the public can find them.

Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) condemned the chamber for its failure to pass the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, a measure she introduced and for which there are 150 cosponsors, only one of which is a Democrat, Rep.

Average GDP For The Last 3 Years Revised Down 0.3%

But first there were some other GDP adjustments and revisions announced as well.

From Bloomberg:

GDP Rises 2.3% in Second Quarter; First Quarter Revised Upward

By Sho Chandra | July 30, 2015

The world’s largest economy expanded at a faster pace in the second quarter and managed to eke out a gain at the start of the year…  Gross domestic product rose at a 2.3 percent annualized rate…

We still don’t know why anyone bothers to report these first GDP estimates. They are always revised, and almost always revised down — at least under Obama. (It was the opposite under Bush.)

The median forecast of 80 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 2.5 percent gain…

The news media economists have always been overly optimistic under Obama.

Chaka Fattah Indicted On 29 Counts; Is Close To Clintons

But don’t worry. He is still going to run for re-election. And he will probably win.

From Roll Call:

Rep. Chaka Fattah Charged in 29-Count Indictment

By Hannah Hess | July 29, 2015

Prosecutors charged Rep. Chaka Fattah, D-Pa., Wednesday in a 29-count indictment with racketeering conspiracy, bribery and wire fraud as part of a probe into the 11-term congressman launched by the FBI and IRS in March 2013.

Fattah’s office confirmed he has agreed to give up his leadership post on the Appropriations Committee, where he is the top Democrat overseeing criminal justice and science spending. He will be replaced by Mike Honda, D-Calif., who is currently the subject of an ethics probe.

Hilarious. Democrats are such loveable scamps.

Fattah has declared his innocence and his plans to run for reelection.

Shocker: HHS Says Health Care Spending Will Accelerate

We were promised Obama-Care would drive down the cost of healthcare. Instead it’s going up faster than before. We were ‘Grubered.’

From the whirling dervishes at the Associated Press:

Health care spending to accelerate, US report says

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR | July 29, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s lasted six years. But now welcome relief from rising U.S. health care costs seems to be winding down.

(Spit take.) Say what?! What ‘relief’ has there been from rising health care costs? Obama-Care and its endless and absurd mandates have driven costs through the roof. Especially when you count what the US taxpayer is paying in subsidies for ‘the poor.’

Health care spending will outpace the nation’s overall economic growth over the next decade, the government forecast on Tuesday, highlighting a challenge for the next president, not to mention taxpayers, businesses and individual Americans.

Obama-Care Co-ops Might Not Pay Back $2.4B In Loans

Socialism fails every time it is tried. These co-op insurance programs were meant to be a compromise after liberals were unable to create a government-run insurance program that would compete with the evil corporate insurers.

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Gov’t finds health law co-ops awash in red ink

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR | July 30, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nonprofit co-ops, the health care law’s public-spirited alternative  [sic!] to mega-insurers, are awash in red ink and many have fallen short of sign-up goals, a government audit has found. Under President Barack Obama’s overhaul, taxpayers provided $2.4 billion in loans to get the co-ops going, but only one out of 23 — the one in Maine — made money last year, said the report out Thursday.

Model Predicted MH370 Pieces Would Land At Reunion

There is only one Boeing 777 that is still unaccounted for. So this material is probably from MH370. But of course what they really need to find is the black box.

From the Associated Press:

US official: Plane debris in Indian Ocean same type as MH370

By KRISTEN GELINEAU and ROD McGUIRK | July 30, 2015

SYDNEY (AP) — A sea-crusted wing part washed up on an island in the western Indian Ocean may be the first trace of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 since it vanished nearly a year and a half ago, and a tragic but finally solid clue to one of aviation’s most perplexing and expensive mysteries.

Air safety investigators — one of them a Boeing investigator — have identified the component found on the French island of Reunion as a "flaperon" from the trailing edge of a Boeing 777 wing, a U.S.

Kerry: We Can’t Reveal Side Deals To American People

FTA: "[Sen] Cotton said, "So the ayatollahs will know what they agreed to but not the American people?" — That about sums it up.

From the Weekly Standard:

Kerry: We Can’t Reveal Contents of Secret Side Deals to American People

By DANIEL HALPER | July 29, 2015

Secretary of State John Kerry testified on Capitol Hill today the U.S. government will not be revealing the contents of secret side deals with Iran to the American people. Senator Tom Cotton wanted to know why it can’t be made public…

Cotton [asked] "Why can’t we confirm or deny the content of these agreements in public? Why is this classified? It’s not a sensitive U.S. government document." "Because we respect the process of the IAEA and we don’t have their authorization to reveal what is a confidential agreement between them and another country," said Kerry.

Study: Prolonged Standing Can Lead To Health Problems

For crying out loud. The ink isn’t even dry on the last ‘health’ diktat — before there is a new ‘health’ diktat that practically says the opposite.

From CBS News Atlanta affiliate, WAOK:

Study: Prolonged Standing At Work Can Lead To Long-Term Health Problems

July 28, 2015

ATLANTA (CBS Atlanta) – We’ve heard the health dangers of sitting too much at work, but working on your feet all day could also be trouble. A new study finds standing five hours a day contributes to long-term back pain and musculoskeletal disorders.

Two hours of standing on the job is not associated with problems, but “a longer period is likely to have detrimental effects,” said study lead author Maria-Gabriela Garcia…

The researchers examined 14 men and 12 women.

NH University Says The Term ‘American’ Is Problematic

We are beginning to think the term ‘college-educated’ might be the most problematic of all.

From Campus Reform:

Bias-Free Language Guide claims the word ‘American’ is ‘problematic’

By Peter Hasson | July 28, 2015

“American,” “illegal alien,” “foreigners,” “mothering,” and “fathering” are just a handful of words deemed “problematic” by the University of New Hampshire’s Bias-Free Language Guide. According to the university’s website, the guide “is meant to invite inclusive excellence in [the] campus community.”

Terms also considered problematic include: “elders,” “senior citizen,” “overweight,” “speech impediment,” “dumb,” “sexual preference,” “manpower,” “freshmen,” “mailman,” and “chairman,” in addition to many others.   The guide defines words such as “homosexual” as “problematic,” offering “Same Gender Loving” as a more inclusive substitute. Similarly, a lack of gender-neutral bathrooms is, according to the university, “ciscentrism.” …

Saying “American” to reference Americans is also problematic.

Rolling Stone Pushes False Rape Allegation Against Trump

We’re supposed to believe that fake charges raise our awareness about rape? Why won’t false charges undercut the credibility of real charges?

From Rolling Stone:

What the Trump and Cosby Allegations Reveal About Rape Culture

Perhaps these allegations will help Americans accept the truth about sexual assault

By Amanda Marcotte | July 28, 2015

On the heels of New York magazine’s moving interview and photo project with nearly three dozen women who’ve publicly accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault, The Daily Beast published a reminder this week that Ivana Trump once made similar accusations against her then-husband, Donald…

And never mind that she didn’t accuse him of ‘rape rape.’

Regardless of what happened that night, what’s undeniable is that Donald Trump is a sexist pig of the first order…

Sheesh.
