Cruz's Surprise Endorsement

Ted Cruz just announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president yesterday--and already he's gotten a huge boost.  Planned Parenthood has begun to run attack ads on its various social media platforms.  The fledgling Cruz campaign could not have asked for a better response or a bigger endorsement.  

Being targeted by Planned Parenthood is like getting a bad review from the Village Voice, or like getting put on a Southern Poverty Law Center enemies list, or like getting called an extremist by Al Sharpton! Without a doubt, it's a huge, huge compliment!

When the world's most profitable non-profit organization, the world's most brazenly nefarious advocacy group, the world's most lasciviously deleterious institution hastily disses a candidate like this, the sane world really ought to perk up and pay heed: this just might be our man! #MAYBEMYCANDIDATEAFTERALL

Likud Victory: A Poke in Obama's Eye

Following the surprise electoral victory of Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu comes the news that a US Senate investigatory committee has launched a probe into the Obama administration's use of taxpayer-funded grants to try to unseat the three-term Prime Minister.

It appears that the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations is looking into $350,000 in recent State Department grants to the OneVoice Movement, and its Israel-based Victory 15 campaign which has as its stated purpose “replacing the government” in Israel.

It is no secret that the icy relationship between Netanyahu and Obama have made for years of escalating foreign policy contentiousness. But proof of State Department funding of opposition campaigns would be nothing short of scandalous.

In any case, the stunning electoral victory of Netanyahu's Likud Party, is a poke in the eye of Obama and his kith and kin.

Reagan's "Abortion and the Conscience of a Nation"

"Make no mistake, abortion-on-demand is not a right granted by the Constitution. No serious scholar, including one disposed to agree with the Court's result, has argued that the framers of the Constitution intended to create such a right."

"The decision by the seven-man majority in Roe v. Wade has so far been made to stick. But the Court's decision has by no means settled the debate. Instead, Roe v. Wade has become a continuing prod to the conscience of the nation."

"We cannot diminish the value of one category of human life — the unborn — without diminishing the value of all human life."

"The real question today is not when human life begins, but, What is the value of human life?"
"Regrettably, we live at a time when some persons do not value all human life. They want to pick and choose which individuals have value."

"As a nation, we must choose between the sanctity of life ethic and the quality of life ethic. I have no trouble identifying the answer our nation has always given to this basic question, and the answer that I hope and pray it will give in the future."

"As a nation today, we have not rejected the sanctity of human life. The American people have not had an opportunity to express their view on the sanctity of human life in the unborn. I am convinced that Americans do not want to play God with the value of human life. It is not for us to decide who is worthy to live and who is not. Even the Supreme Court's opinion in Roe v. Wade did not explicitly reject the traditional American idea of intrinsic worth and value in all human life; it simply dodged this issue."

"We must all educate ourselves to the reality of the horrors taking place. Doctors today know that unborn children can feel a touch within the womb and that they respond to pain.
Late-term abortions, especially when the baby survives, but is then killed by starvation, neglect, or suffocation, show once again the link between abortion and infanticide. The time to stop both is now."

"As we continue to work to overturn Roe v. Wade, we must also continue to lay the groundwork for a society in which abortion is not the accepted answer to unwanted pregnancy. Pro-life people have already taken heroic steps, often at great personal sacrifice, to provide for unwed mothers."

"We will never recognize the true value of our own lives until we affirm the value in the life of others."

"We cannot survive as a free nation when some men decide that others are not fit to live and should be abandoned to abortion or infanticide. My Administration is dedicated to the preservation of America as a free land, and there is no cause more important for preserving that freedom than affirming the transcendent right to life of all human beings, the right without which no other rights have any meaning."

Year in Review

Stumbling to the Slaughter

Planned Parenthood's taxpayer subsidized abortion clinics killed 327,653 children in its fiscal year 2014, according to the world's most profitable non-profit organization's newly released annual report.

Horrifically, that works out to an average of 37 abortions per hour or nearly 1 every 90 seconds.

For its grisly work, Planned Parenthood received $528.4 million from government grants and reimbursements, approximately 41 percent of its revenue.

Despite the fact that the federal government is prohibited from paying directly for abortions through Title X family planning grants and reimbursements, federal funds do underwrite Planned Parenthood's administration and programs, making the abortion behemoth's child-killing programs possible.

If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work? (Proverbs 24:10-12)

Not Good News for Planned Parenthood

The 2014 elections were disastrous for Planned Parenthood's Democrat sponsors in government. Thanks be to God.

Despite spending millions of dollars, the abortion behemoth has virtually nothing to show for it in this election cycle.  Indeed, in Tennessee despite outspending the pro-life Yes on Amendment One campaign more than 3-1, Planned Parenthood was thumped at the polls.

Now, we must see what we can do with this incredible gift to roll back the tide of Planned Parenthood's brazen wickedness even more.

Defending the Indefensible

What can possibly account for this? Is it moral brazenness? Is it intellectual blindness? Is it ideological stubbornness? Perhaps a combination of all three?

Whatever the cause, it is more than a little reprehensible.

The Killer Angel

In life and death, Margaret Sanger, the progenitor of the grisly abortion industry and the patron of the devastatingly destructive sexual revolution has been lauded as a “radiant” and “courageous” reformer. Friend and foe alike have heralded her as a "heroine,” a “champion,” a “saint,” and a “martyr.” Honored by men as different and divergent as H. G. Wells and Martin Luther King, George Bernard Shaw and Harry Truman, Bertrand Russell and John D. Rockefeller, Albert Einstein and Dwight Eisenhower, this remarkable “killer angel” was able to secret away her perverse atrocities, emerging in the annals of history practically vindicated and victorious.

That this could happen is a scandal of grotesque proportions.

And recently the proportions have only grown—like a deleterious Kudzu or a rogue Topsy. Sanger has been the subject of adoring television dramas, hagiographical biographies, patronizing theatrical productions, and saccharined musical tributes. Though the facts of her life and work are anything but inspiring, millions of unwary moderns have been urged to find in them inspiration and hope. Myth is rarely dependent upon truth, after all.

Sanger’s rehabilitation has depended on writers, journalists, historians, social scientists, and sundry other media celebrities steadfastly obscuring or blithely ignoring what she did, what she said, and what she believed. It has thus depended upon a don’t-confuse-me-with-the-facts ideological tenacity unmatched by any but the most extreme of our modern secular cults.

“Killer Angel” is a brief monograph that attempts to set the record straight. It is an attempt to rectify that shameful distortion of the social, cultural, and historical record. It has no other agenda than to replace fiction with fact.

It is therefore long overdue that the truth be told. It is long overdue that the proper standing of Margaret Sanger in the sordid history of the bloody twentieth century be secured. To that end, this book is written.

Red Cup and Bloody Hands

Which is worse? Her silly red cup or the blood on her hands?

If you're like me and don't actually follow such things as the Miss America pageant, you probably missed New York's Kira Kazantsev and her winning "talent" competition--she sang the pop anthem "Happy" while rhythmically flipping a red plastic cup around on stage. Apparently, the performance has brought her no little controversy.

Amazingly, what has not generated much notice at all, much less any real controversy, is the fact that the newly crowned Miss America was apparently employed for several months last year by Planned Parenthood of New York (according to her public Linked-In profile).

Indeed, that is the very same grisly abortion franchise that gained national ignomy last year for its lethal, botched abortions and its services to human traffickers and underage sex workers.

Quite the resume for America's newest good-will representative, isn't it?

The President's Favorite Charity Shelters Pedophiles

For years now, various researchers have exposed the efforts of Planned Parenthood and its abortion industry minions to cover up the crimes of pedophiles while performing their child-killing procedures on underage girls. But now, a new study has added fresh revelations to that horrific scandal.

Life Dynamics has posted a startling new report on it's Child Predators site. Founder Mark Crutcher explains just what that report found:
“We reviewed criminal cases in which men have been convicted of sexual relationships with minor girls,” he says. “During those trials it was revealed that child victims had been taken to an abortion clinic or a Planned Parenthood facility but no report was made, despite mandatory reporting laws. This allowed the abuse of the child to continue afterward.”
Some of the girls were 6 to 8 years old, he reports, and abuse continued for several years until they became pregnant--and then the abuser took the girl for an abortion.
“Between 60 and 80 percent of the minor girls in this country who get pregnant were not impregnated by other minors, they were impregnated by adults,” Crutcher says.
“It is a national scandal that this is allowed to go on,” Crutcher argues, “and the main reason that it does go on is because these pedophiles know that the worst thing that can happen to them is that the girl gets pregnant--but then all they have to do is take her to one of these places, and nobody will say anything.”
This cover-up needs to end, but Crutcher asserts neither abortion clinics nor authorities will presently take any action. In addition, he is concerned that all too many parents are not overly concerned either—unless of course, they discover that it's their daughter who is being victimized.

As if the horror of abortion were not enough, this study reveals that the evil of Planned Parenthood and its child-killing minions is even more brazen than we might have thought.

Planned Parenthood's Grand Hypocricy

“He wears a mask, and his face grows to fit it.” George Orwell

“The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“And what sort of lives do these people, who pose as being moral, lead themselves? My dear fellow, you forget that we are in the native land of the hypocrite.” Oscar Wilde

“Those who plead their cause in the absence of an opponent can invent to their heart's content, can pontificate without taking into account the opposite point of view and keep the best arguments for themselves, for aggressors are always quick to attack those who have no means of defence.” Christine de Pizan

Defending the Indefensible

The radical Senate Dems are veering into an election year danger zone with their push to lift all regulations and restrictions on the multi-billion dollar a year abortion industry. They want to restrict and regulate just about everything else in sight--but when it comes to serious surgeries for late term child-killing, they want to avert their gaze while defending the indefensible.

Connecticut's way-off-the-deep-end senator, Richard Blumenthal, is leading a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on a bill that would override all state laws aimed at reeling in the abuses of dangerous late-term abortion mills like Kermit Gosnell's notorious "House of Horrors" in Philadelphia.  

In 2011, Gosnell and several of his employees were charged with eight counts of murder,  24 felony counts of performing illegal surgical procedures, and 227 misdemeanor counts of violating Pennsylvania's informed consent law in a flithy, understaffed, and woefully antiquated child-killing mill.

Blumenthal's bill, which already has the support of nearly two-thirds of senate Democrats, would make it easier for unscrupulous profiteers like Gosnell to operate legally and without the pesky intrusion of occupational and medical safety regulations that all other surgical clinics must follow.  Indeed, the law would eradicate restrictions in at least a dozen states where abortions are carefully monitored to make sure that they are at least relatively safe.  

Not surprisingly, the New York Times editorial board has enthused over the bill--as have many Obamaphiles on the loony Left.

But, the majority of Americans still actually favor restrictions on dangerous abortion surgeries, leaving the Democratic default position on the issue--unrestricted access to elective abortion--increasingly out of step, to say nothing of increasingly grotesque.

The Worst Sort of Double Standard

"Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of falsehood, who draw sin as with cart ropes, who say: “Let him be quick, let him speed his work that we may see it; let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near, and let it come, that we may know it!” Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight! (Isaiah 5:18-21)

Brazen and Perverse Wickedness

Is it possible Planned Parenthood can get any more brazen in their perverse wickedness?  Apparently, it is. A shocking new video released by Live Action today shows an Indianapolis Planned Parenthood counselor encouraging a young girl to engage in violent sex acts, watch porn, and hide her activities from her parents.

In the video, an actress posing as a 15-year-old girl goes to the Midtown Planned Parenthood for STD testing, after which she asks in a very general way whether she can talk to someone. The staffer, who had been processing her STD paperwork, agreed to answer her questions.

“I just have some questions about, like, sex, to be honest,” the girl begins. She tells the staffer that her boyfriend had suggested “role play” to her, and asks whether that was normal.

The staffer reassures her that it is, and explains, “People dress up … cowboys and Indians type things. Or, a nurse, and he would be, like, a nurse, or you could be the maid, and he would be some rich guy, and dressed all fancy. You try to seduce him. Or, you could be a dom, a dominatrix-type person, where you dress in all leather, or something, with the whips and handcuffs.”

The girl had at no point prior to this mentioned BDSM or curiosity about dominatrices, whips and handcuffs or any of the other practices and “toys” the staffer goes on to suggest.

The staffer then goes on to tell graphic stories about her own sex life (these are thankfully edited out of the publicly available video. She even asserts that the girl "needs" to read the contemptible "Fifty Shades of Grey" novel.

Once again: your tax dollars at work.

Vatican: Obama’s Policies Hostile Toward Christianity

The Vatican’s chief justice has asserted what Christians in America have long understood: President Obama’s policies, domestic and foreign, are hostile toward Christianity and Christian civilization.

In an interview with Polonia Christiana Magazine, Cardinal Raymond Burke affirmed the all too obvious reality that Obama “promotes anti-life and anti-family policies.”

“It is true that the policies of the president of the United States have become progressively more hostile toward Christian civilization. He appears to be a totally secularized man who aggressively promotes anti-life and anti-family policies,” Burke opined.

Indeed, the former archbishop of St. Louis asserted that Obama is clearly trying to “restrict” religion. “Now he wants to restrict the exercise of the freedom of religion to freedom of worship, that is, he holds that one is free to act according to his conscience within the confines of his place of worship but that, once the person leaves the place of worship, the government can constrain him to act against his rightly-formed conscience, even in the most serious of moral questions,” Burke said.

Burke also criticized ObamaCare's anti-life mandate, arguing that “such policies would have been unimaginable in the United States even 40 years ago.”

“In a democracy, such a lack of awareness is deadly,” Burke said. “It leads to the loss of the freedom which a democratic government exists to protect. It is my hope that more and more of my fellow citizens, as they realize what is happening, will insist on electing leaders who respect the truth of the moral law as it is respected in the founding principles of our nation.”

Obama Recovery: Worse than Bush Recession

According to Peter Ferrara in Forbes magazine, "Economically, Barack Obama could very well be America's worst president ever." 

Indeed, under his administration real GDP growth has actually been less than half as much as the worst of any president in the last 60 years. "In other words," says Ferrara, "even if you doubled actual GDP growth under President Obama, it would still be the worst record of any President in the last 60 years!"  In fact, "Even Jimmy Carter produced 4 times as much economic growth during his one term as Obama has."

In his 2013 State of the Union Address, President Obama said, “A growing economy that creates good, middle class jobs, that must be the North Star that guides our efforts.” But the slow growth, and negligible job creation under Obama, in turn have caused steeply declining middle class incomes. The latest numbers compiled from the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey show that real median household income declined by more than $4,500 during Obama’s first term, about 8%, meaning effectively that the middle class has lost annually the equivalent of one month’s pay under Obama. Even President Bush again did better during his disastrous second term, when real median household income at least rose by 1.7%, not enough, but still positive rather than negative.

According to Ferrara, "Even if you start from when the recession ended in June, 2009, the decline in median real household income since then has been greater than it was during the recession. Four years into the supposed Obama recovery, real median household income has declined nearly 6% as compared to June, 2009. That is more than twice the decline of 2.6% that occurred during the recession from December, 2007 until June, 2009." 

As the Wall Street Journal has asserted, “For household income, in other words, the Obama recovery has been worse than the Bush recession.”

And again, according to Ferrara, "Despite his rhetoric, Obama has failed to deliver for the poor as well. But we know Obama loves the poor, because he has created so many of them. Indeed, the only thing booming under Obamanomics has been poverty. Poverty has soared under Obama, with the number of Americans in poverty increasing to the highest level in the more than 50 years that the Census Bureau has been tracking poverty. Over the last 5 years, the number in poverty has increased by nearly 31%, to 49.7 million, with the poverty rate climbing by over 30% to 16.1%. This is another natural result of negligible economic growth, paltry job creation, declining real wages, and the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression."

Worst president ever? Even if you ignore the brazen wickedness on social issues and the gross negligence on foreign policy, this disaster is nigh unto indisputable.

He Either Doesn’t Understand or Has Forgotten

You know things are bad when your own family starts to turn on you. But of course, most of us have known things were bad since the start of Barack Obama's presidency.

Now, Obama's second cousin, Dr. Milton Wolf, a board-certified diagnostic radiologist from Kansas, puts into words what most of America has long been thinking:

“Barack Obama is the worst president in our lifetimes, If not in our history. He has been a disaster. It’s mostly because he either doesn’t understand or has forgotten what America is all about. The American idea itself is about individual liberty, limited government and free-market values.”

The Elephant in the Room

Business consultants are fond of creating metaphors to describe the common human dynamics and leadership dilemmas that all companies, organizations, and societies face at one time or another.

Thus, they talk about frogs in the kettle, flies in the ointment, straw on camel’s backs, bulls in china shops, lead dogs, mule trains, hundredth monkeys, and tipping points. There are water cooler brainstorms, stovepipe discussions, and boilerplate solutions.

One of the most powerful of these metaphors is what they often call the elephant in the room. The elephant in the room is that huge issue—the issue everyone is desperately, deliberately trying to ignore.

It is that embarrassingly inconvenient and awkward problem that everyone wishes would just go away. But it won’t. It just sits there like a giant obstruction right in the middle of the room. It intrudes on every conversation. It affects every project. And it alters every relationship. It is the elephant in the room.

The issue of life—and everything it entails from abortion and euthanasia to the right to choose and the right to die—the issue of life is that embarrassing, inconvenient, and awkward elephant in the room that nearly every politician, media commentator, and cultural elite wishes would go away. But it won’t. No matter how studiously they avert their gaze, no matter how stubbornly they ignore it, and no matter how convincingly they pretend it just doesn’t matter any more.

The elephant in the room keeps rudely interrupting business as usual.

The Monster of the Beltway

Planned Parenthood's annual report is out and it appears that once again the organization's evil empire has proven to be the Monster of the Beltway. The gargantuan abortion provider and salacious sex advocate is the world's most profitable non-profit organization--and you and I helped them get that way with our generous tax donations.  

Indeed, Planned Parenthood quaffed at the public trough at the rate of some $1.5 million a day, every single day this past year.  $1.5 million a day!

As you might expect, the report is larded with the lurid details of the organization's nasty, ghoulish business.  But there is nothing that tops the audacity in the fact that all this wickedness is publicly funded.

Talk of budget deals, deficit reductions, sequesters, and filibusters all you please, but this $1.5 million in blood money is at the heart and soul of the troubling of our nation.

Let Justice Roll Down

"Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream." (Amos 5:24)

Beyond Travesty

On November 20, 2013 the Obama Administration reached a high water mark in its brazen veneration of wickedness. The hubris displayed in the ObamaCare debacle or the fiasco of the Senate filibuster nuking actually pale in comparison. Forget the entrenched corruption, the embarrassing incompetence, and the belligerent dishonesty. This is worse. Indeed, never before in history has the White House lowered itself to such depths of despicable depravity.

The craven concupiscence on display when Obama celebrated Gloria Steinem's lifetime of perversion and subversion with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor is beyond even what Orwell or Huxley could have imagined for their darkest dystopias. 

Steinem has always stood foursquare against anything and everything that is right and good and true. Anything and everything. She is a self-proclaimed Marxist. She is an anti-life, anti-family, and anti-American zealot. As she has asserted, "We don't just want to destroy capitalism, we want to tear down the whole f---ing patriarchy." 

In addition, she is one of the architects of an abortion holocaust that has cost the lives of more than 55 million children and wrecked havoc on the whole fabric of our society. In the premiere issue of her now all-but-defunct "Ms. Magazine," she made child-killing the essential platform issue for her brand of Fundamentalist Feminism. She even featured the sanctimonious testimonies of fifty-three prominent American women touting their illegal abortions.

The 71-year-old Steinem summed up her philosophy in a 2005 "New York Observer" interview. Asked what her advice to young women in the twenty-first century might be, she tartly replied, "To do whatever they f---ing well please." 

Seriously? This is what President Obama wants to celebrate? Is this really what we have come to?

"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20

The New Coercive Utopians: Pro-Abortion No-Choicers

Bill de Blasio, the newly elected mayor of New York City and a self-described Socialist, has every intention of making America's largest city a pro-abortion "no-choice" zone.

Among the coercive measures he has already announced:

1. Forcing doctors who train in city hospitals to perform abortions as a routine part of their training regardless of "sham concerns of conscience or faith."

2. Working to close down Crisis Pregnancy Centers, what he has dubbed "fake clinics" because they do not offer child-killing services and therefore do not perform “legitimate health care.”

3. Partnering with Planned Parenthood to help them expand their business in the city by finding neighborhoods that lack convenient clinic access and providing them with “city sponsored” space to set up shop.

4. Using ObamaCare to expand state-funded abortion coverage to more New York City women.

5. Helpinthe multi-billion dollar abortion industry wipe out their opposition and competition in the city.

Following in the footsteps of his inspirational heroes, the Communist Sandinistas, de Blasio seems intent on creating a coercive socialist utopia for abortionists. And with help from a like-minded administration in Washington, it is lamentably likely that he will succeed--at least, in the short term.

The Villainy of Sanger Revealed

The horror of Margaret Sanger's radical dystopic worldview and revolutionary agenda is powerfully revealed in an article by Lauren Enriquez, published by Life News.  This really is must-reading for anyone still bound by the delusion that Planned Parenthood, the organization Sanger founded, is actually in the health care business.

Abortion in Tennessee: In the News

Nashville's Gannett-owned newspaper, "The Tennesseean," has published a relatively objective, wide-ranging, and detailed series on abortion in Tennessee

The series notable for at least three reasons: 

First, you just don't see much substantive, investigative journalism in the daily papers anymore.  Constrained by shrinking subscriber and advertising dollars, the big city newspapers have become smaller and smaller and the constraints on projects have become greater and greater. There are still a few web-based sources for good investigative journalism--but they are few indeed.

Second, the more than 20 articles in the series hew closer than one might expect to relative objectivity (emphasis on relative).  The truth is, when it comes to this very contentious subject (and contentious, it should be given the fact that it involves all the most critical issues of life and death, freedom and liberty, law and lawlessness) there really is no such thing as genuine objectivity and there is only rarely relative objectivity--especially in the modern media environment.  This is the sort of journalism that will likely make the partisans on both sides more than a little agitated (I winced any number of times as I noted sometimes subtle, sometimes not-so-subtle pro-abort jabs--but, then found myself gratified at other points: fair enough).

Third, this vital issue is actually given its due in the series. It is not cut off short with brusk bromides all too typical when such unpleasantries are broached in the contemporary  journalistic conversation.  In Tennessee, the net importing of abortion makes this a particularly vital issue for this particularly conservative state.

So, for all these reasons, this is a rather extraordinary piece of work indeed.

Gates Foundation and Planned Parenthood-Style Eugenicism

According to a report from The New American, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is taking fire from human rights advocates for funding and promoting the most recent form of the controversial contraceptive drug, Depo Provera.  Following in the Eugenic footsteps of Planned Parenthood, the Gates Foundation's advocacy of the deadly drug is particularly aimed at women in Africa and developing countries. 
Melinda Gates, wife of Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, told the New York Times that she is championing wide distribution of the drug "after talking with poor women around the world." But Kwame Fosu, policy director for the Rebecca Project for Human Rights, says Mrs. Gates’ claims are “disingenuous” because the women she claims to be helping are not being informed about the dangers involved.
“No African woman would agree to being injected if she had full knowledge of the contraceptives’ dangerous side effects,” Kwame Fosu told C-FAM, the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute. “In fact,” claimed Fosu, “in countries where women are educated on the harmful complications, Depo Provera use is negligible.”
“Depo Provera, made by the Pfizer Corporation, the most deadly contraceptive (according to the FDA), is being marketed with malice and forethought at our precious women and girls of African descent world wide,” said Dr. Randy Short, a spokesman for the Washington-based Rebecca Project, in a scathing statement earlier this year exposing the Gates-Depo Provera scheme. “Many nations have outlawed it, but it continues to be used in the USA, the Caribbean, Oceania, Latin America, and Africa,” Dr. Short noted. “The use of Depo Provera,” according to Short, “contributes to and in several cases causes life threatening diseases and medical problems: cervical cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, heart attack, sterility, miscarriages, HIV/AIDS, Chlamydia, and other STIs/STDs.”
Dr. Short said further: 
In the USA, 84% of the Depo Provera is used by Black women. Wherever there are high rates of HIV/AIDS in Africa, the use of Depo Provera is universal. As recently as 2010, human experimentation on African women was done illegally with Depo Provera in Ghana. The USAID sends more Depo Provera to Africa than any other drug, and the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation recently raised $2.6 billion dollars to buy Depo Provera to be able to "give" it to 100 million African women. 
Dr. Short notes that “the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation got into trouble in Niger with some vaccination project being done on 180,000 African women.” “The Gates know that the drug is deadly,” says Short. “Mr. Gates' father was an ardent eugenicist.”
An extensive new report by the Rebecca Project entitled "Depo Provera: Deadly Violence Against Women" provides a devastating critique of the unethical and criminal activities of organizations promoting the Depo Provera assault on the world’s poor. Among the many important revelations in the report is the dirty secret of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer’s ties to powerful “intermediaries.”
“Since it is illegal for Pfizer to promote off-label claims,” notes the report, “it utilizes intermediaries to evade US law who consequently become liable for the fraudulent promotion, marketing and administering of Depo Provera to women.”
According to the Rebecca Project report, the U.S. Department of Justice should charge Pfizer and its principal institutional intermediaries with fraud for the following and other reasons: 
Pfizer with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, Population Council, Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation, Planned Parenthood, Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health, are engaged in a pattern of fraudulent and illegal promotion schemes with other agents and contractors, to deceive and defraud patients, US taxpayers, ethical physicians, ethical birth control providers, regulators/FDA, insurance companies, federal and state health programs, to cause prescribing and payments for Depo Provera. 
The report also states: 
The United States has created a normative population control worldview directed through a surreptitious patchwork of policies promulgated by organizations whose ideological formation and funding eugenicists have provided. At the top tier of population control policy are organizations created by pioneers and patrons of the eugenics movement: Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), Population Council, UNFPA (The United Nations Fund for Population Activities), and their patrons: the Ford Foundation, (Margaret Hempel), the Rockefeller Foundation, (Judith Rodin) and USAID. The newcomers to this elite group of eugenicist policymakers are Bill and Melinda Gates, welcomed with their foray into promoting the injectable contraceptive Depo Provera while concealing life-threatening harm. 
As The New American has reported previously, Bill and Melinda Gates are members of a secretive, elite clique calling itself “The Good Club,” composed of billionaire eugenicists who champion population control. The members of this group include David Rockefeller, George Soros, Warren Buffett, Michael Bloomberg, Ted Turner, and Oprah Winfrey. The Good Club is a major backer of the Obama administration’s Global Health Initiative, which is working, among other things, to further empower the World Health Organization, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Planned Parenthood, and other dastardly Eugenic schemes around the world.

Shades of Caesar

While the new regime of socialized medicine under Obamacare is designed to benefit child-killing behemoths like Planned Parenthood, it will put the squeeze on child-saving hospitals like St. Jude, according to a new report from the Daily Caller.

A provision in Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code, which takes effect under Obamacare, gives federal bureaucrats a whole new arsenal of weapons, including sweeping investigative powers and the imposition of financial penalties--aimed at tax-exempt charitable hospitals which devote a minimum amount of their expenses to treat the uninsured poor.

The justification for this draconian imposition on institutions that serve the least and the last? It seems that charity to the poor is one of the factors that could discourage enrollment in Obamacare, which requires all Americans to purchase health insurance.

In other words, we will all be punished if we dare try do the right things.

The bottom line is simply that the federal government will tolerate no rivals in its bid to impose its comprehensive program of cradle-to-grave control. Shades of Caesar: “And Jesus said to them, ‘The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those in authority over them are called benefactors.’” (Luke 22:25)
