A NOTE TO CONSERVATIVE AMERICANS: HARRIS COUNTY ADA LAUREN REEDER IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM BUT THE FACT YOUR TALK RADIO LEADERS WOULD LIE ABOUT HER INVOLVEMENT IN THE INVESTIGATION OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS

Once again, the Right has been hoist by its own petard. Exalted pillars of the conservative community Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham have both for money and fame perpetrated a lie. Rush Limbaugh as Media matters for America writer Sharon Kann points out in her article quotes Limbaugh from his radio show just yesterday, “And it turns out that there is a prosecutor in the Harris County DA’s office named Lauren Reeder — she’s in the criminal family law division — and she is on the board of Planned Parenthood. And she notified the DA, Devon Anderson, of her role with Planned Parenthood last week, long after the grand jury process had begun. Devon Anderson, the prosecuting attorney in Harris County, Houston, told the Houston Chronicle that Lauren Reeder, prosecutor in her office, had a role at Planned Parenthood, she was told she would not be involved in any manner in the investigation.”

Ingraham on her show stated, on the same day, “Let’s be clear on this again, Devon Anderson, who is the district attorney in Harris County, she did not sit on the board of Planned Parenthood. She was an appointee of Rick Perry. Lauren Reeder, who’s an assistant DA, in Harris County in the same office as Devon Anderson, had sat on — is a member, current member — of Planned Parenthood’s board of directors. And this apparently was only revealed to Devon Anderson last week. So, yeah, excuse me, it was, it was, just to be clear I want to get all these facts straight. This was revealed in August of 2015, not last week. So there was a board member working in the office investigating Planned Parenthood, we don’t know at this moment what role she had in the actual investigation itself. I mean, just because she was in the office doesn’t mean she was instrumental in this particular case. But we’re going to endeavor to find that out.”

So we have two cases here. The first of Limbaugh who lies and moves on and Ingraham who must have had a crisis of conscience and corrected herself in the next sentence after setting the lies in the minds of her ignorant listeners. The truth of the matter is that Lauren Reeder ADA in the Harris County District Attorney’s Office was, because of an appearance of impropriety, removed from any dealings or involvement in the investigation into Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast in August 2015. This is cited in a Houston Chronicle article written on 7 August 2015 which quotes Devon Anderson [appointed by Republican Governor Rick Perry as saying, “She will not be involved in any manner in this investigation. If at any time in the future, reliable and credible information is brought to my attention that would question our ability to continue to perform a fair, thorough and independent investigation of this matter due to her board membership, I will revisit the issue of seeking the appointment of an independent prosecutor and act accordingly.”

TRUMP’S DEBATE TEMPER TANTRUM GIVES FAR RIGHT CONSERVATIVES COVER ON DALEIDEN’S INDICTMENT AND THE BUNDY BLUNDER IN OREGON

You know, it was almost worth it now watching ACORN fall victim to conservative videographer James O’Keefe. Almost. This morning if you read the conservative site Breitbart.com you wouldn’t see much about two of the biggest stories in the nation. First, David R. Daleiden has been indicted on counts of tampering with a government issued ID, a felony and attempting to procure fetal tissue a misdemeanor by a grand jury in Houston, Texas. Daleiden, the director of the dubiously name Center for Medical Progress, and his accomplice Sandra S. Merritt will stand trial for their crimes and the effect of their errors has been to vindicate Planned Parenthood as an organization.

On the west coast, LaVoy Finicum, 54, a supporter of Ammon Bundy and the group who have “taken over” the Malheur Wildlife Refuge is dead and seven others have been arrested in a joint operation by the FBI and Oregon State Police. Now I’m watching Sara Sidner on CNN reporting on these events and one of the insurrectionists is claiming that Finucum was killed in cold blood doing the hand up don’t shoot. How ironic considering the bulk of the people supporting this act of redneck stupidity under the guise of bringing America back to Constitutional rule, or something like that, are the same people who shouted support for George Zimmerman. Well now with Finicum dead, unconfirmed reports here are that he killed himself, I think we can call this even. Brian Cooper is still in control of the remaining insurrectionists that didn’t flee home last night but the time that he has there out of communication with the FBI is surely limited.

Pax Terra!

THE CENTER FOR MEDICAL PROGRESS VERSUS STEM EXPRESS

Posted in PLANNED PARENTHOOD, THE CENTER FOR MEDICAL PROGRESS with tags , , , , , on 19/08/2015 by sarahbloch

Conservatives, being powerless to overturn Roe v Wade have turned to a 20th Century gotcha tactic straight out of the playbook of 60 Minutes. The Center for Medical Progress, an ideological organization dedicated to the destruction of Planned Parenthood and an end to a woman’s right to have an abortion in the United States, has produced a series of hidden camera videos which give the impression that Planned Parenthood and a bioresearch company, Stem Express have conspired to gain fetal organs and tissue without the consent of the woman who had an abortion. While there is no definitive proof that either of these organizations have done anything criminal, the court of political opinion on the Right has already made up its mind.

Several calls have been made to defund Planned Parenthood, which receives as much as a half billion federal dollars a year, by a wide spectrum of conservative elected officials. This is a backdoor effort to continue the largest battle of the Culture Wars–one that most Progressives thought was won decades ago. But over the last ten years, the Right has redoubled its efforts to limit the access that American women have to abortions and if necessary to women’s services.

The truly horrible part of this story is that the blood and tissue and organs harvested for medical research would lead to cures to some of the most deadly diseases affecting hundreds of millions of Human Beings. Those cures, like the health and well being of American women mean nothing to the conservatives. Those on the Right, who feel their religious beliefs must apply to all Americans because their interpretation of their religion trumps any codified secular law, have done violence against those who provide abortion services and will continue, as ISIS does to use corrupt ideas, lies and any other tool they have at their disposal to have a brief moment of bliss at bringing down yet another “progressive” institution. It is a sad commentary on the current state of American society that those trying to do what Human Beings should; extend health and well being to the masses are being made the evil enemy when the real evil enemy are those who think their ideology and religion is more important than the civil rights of nearly 170 million women.
