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.

conservative last 2050

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.

VOX POPULI: DEMETRIUS BLACKWELL AND JONATHAN RENFRO

Over the last few days, tragically, two members of law enforcement in two very different regions of the United States of America have been killed in the line of duty. New York Police Department Officer Brian Moore was shot on Saturday after stopping a man who was acting suspiciously in the New York borough of Queens. The man later identified as Demetrius Blackwell, 35, a career criminal fired three rounds at the two officers in the unmarked patrol car. One of those bullets fired from a gun stolen from a bait and tackle shop in Georgia four years ago, struck Officer Moore in the forehead. Moore died from his injuries on this past Sunday.

More than 2,500 miles to the west another police officer is slain by a career criminal. This time it was Coeur d’Alene Police Sergeant Greg Moore who was killed during a routine traffic stop early on 5 May 2015. The shooter was Jonathan Renfro, 27 had recently served five years in prison for assault and grand theft. Renfro stole Moore’s patrol car and was eventually captured near a WalMart with the aid of a K9 officer.

Conservatives like to write about crime in their own terms and these two cases show the glaring inconsistencies that pepper their comments about events like these. At the Free Republic a conservative forum that deals with a litany of American social issues, the commenters have clearly different reactions to what happened in Coeur d’Alene and what happened in Queens. First, Coeur d’Alene:

There’s an adage in the Bible that suggests that if you have contemplated acting out a sin, you’re already guilty of that sin.

Lusting for a woman other than your wife in your heart is an example. (Hear that Carter?)

So when a guy attempts murder, it seems to me you should penalize the guy for murder.

If he attempted it, and by some stroke of fate it didn’t occur that way, he still went though the whole process and made a conscious decision to commit murder.

If you murder someone, you should remain in prison for life. A person who is found guilty of attempted murder, should remain in murder for life.

This officer should still be alive. We in effect give attempted murderers a second try. We should stop doing that.

Fury? LMAO

Since when is reasoned logic dependent on fury? Are you judging me by your personal standards?

This guy spent eight years in prison for attempted murder. The courts let the guy out, and he killed a police officer.

He had already proven himself willing to commit murder. What part of that did the court miss? He already tried to commit murder.

1. He got angry
2. He devised a plan
3. He followed through with that plan
4. He wasn’t successful in killing the person even though he tried

So what is the difference between this and a plan that succeeded as far as guilt goes?

He should serve the penalty on the intent, and I’m sorry you can’t grasp the Bible’s clear message on this.

This POS will get a fair trial and have free legal representation. The 6 cops in Baltimore are being denied that.

And that’s the clear difference here in black and white, literally. The Freepers are soft and conciliatory making excuses for Jonathan Renfro who is white; while deriding Demetrius Blackwell who is black. Both men committed the same crime and should have the same fate– incarceration in jail for the rest of their lives. However, white American conservatives must make everything about how white Americans are no longer safe in a country they do not recognize. I find this curious and see no solution to this save for the swift passing of time.

FROM THE DESK OF THE EDITOR IN CHIEF: A CALL TO DEBATE TO ALL CONSERVATIVES AND A PERSONAL NOTE TO NEOCON1

Posted in CAVALOR EPTHITH EDITORIALS with tags on 04/03/2015 by Cavalor Epthith, Esquire, D.S.V.J

cavalor_hooves

In the name of Her Imperial majesty Ang’ki Hoor I who rules Hell with Justice and insures the Freedom of All Souls I offer this call to debate to the political enemies of Progressives all across Terra and personally to he who calls himself Neocon1:

And why do you believe that there is so much crime in the black community Neocon1. Could it possibly have anything to do with centuries of being treated like second class citizens? In your lifetime millions of black Americans many of whom had fought for their country honorably still could not vote? And please, don’t dodge the question by screaming as you usually do about the Klan and the government imposing Jim Crow were Democrats. As a student of Human history I know that political affiliation to be a fact. However, those men were in no way Progressives–they were Conservatives of the highest order. Those Southern Conservatives felt Christianity was the only true way to salvation, they believed in the 2nd Amendment as gospel and they abhorred abortion. How do these things make them Progressive when what they said then sounds like what you say now?

I do agree with you that black poverty and lack of middle class wealth is a result of the government throwing money at poor blacks in the hope they will do two things. Be appeased and continue to vote for Democrats. A real progressive President in the 1960s would have redistributed the wealth of the bigoted South and paid reparations to black Americans and saved some, not all, from the future that was almost certain as second class welfare recipients. That day will come, however, and that is your true fear Neocon1; a nation of successful and diverse minorities, women and LGBT persons at the apex of power in an America that leads Terra once again.

Mock me all you wish Neocon1. Call me names, be a bigot; I do not care. For I and my kind have won the greatest battle in history against those with your ideology and that victory was won before you were born. When women were granted the right to vote the dominoes began to fall. And look where you are now? Fighting petty little battles against people you call by the name of the enemy in the war you lost in Vietnam. That one still hurts doesn’t it? All those maimed bodies sent back home from war to be mocked as you mock me? 57,000 dead for nothing; had they been cowards they would at least be alive, right? Friends with holes in their heads, blown up and right now the flag of the People’s Republic of Vietnam flies proudly over what was once Saigon. A terrible, terrible waste that war was.

But you know this and you know that such waste of Human Lives is not honorable. Those 57,000 that were wasted in Vietnam will cost those who sent them there more suffering in Hell than all the women who have had abortions in the history of time. Yes, you see what I did there? I do not care about abortions Neocon1 because that is a matter of a woman and her own immortal Soul. You religious beliefs or your false morality cause me no guilt because I am immune to such things just as I am immune to the ignorance that allows you to be a bigot. Are black people, some of them rapacious criminals? Yes, millions are. Are white people rapacious criminals? Yes, millions of them. See how easy it is to be a rational Sentient Being rather than the slave of an ideology that is dead in the womb of ideas?

But I have taken up too much of your time today and as is my custom in midweek I have an appointment with my farrier. But let me leave you to your remaining posts about things that have no real meaning with this olive branch. I forgive your Soul for calling me a liar. The view from the moral high ground is quite pleasant. You have been reinstated to comment at our blog if you wish. The rules I conveyed to the Majordomo still apply. No more of your long reposts from white nationalist or far right conservative sites. No more of that drivel. Argue! Swear! Call our policies and methods rubbish. All of us would delight in the debate Just keep in mind that every time you call a black man a monkey, or a nigger or a gay man a faggot or a woman a slut it will be published for all of Terra to see. In this way one can determine whether your desire for smaller government, rule of law and the right to keep an bear arms are really your ideology or whether bigotry is what you espouse

From time to time the bickering, for lack of a better word, with conservatives whether here or at their sites, can be fun. After this last exchange with Tim, Neocon1 and Jeremiah at Views From the Right Side this week I was left feeling a little bitter. I will make this short and sweet. What I get paid to do is verify the information that comes in and package it for our readers. I am a researcher and a journalist that prides himself both on his accomplishments and has learned from his failures.

In this case, I have failed. Not in the meaningless and pointless arguments with people who’s minds will never be changed at their blogs, but you, our readers. The progressive cause is not one that wants to take the rights of people away. On the contrary, Progressives want to use the government and its power and purse to make the lives of Middle Class Americans better. Just listening last night to Senator Elizabeth Warren and representative Elijah Cummings talk about what they want to do to help the bruised, battered and ever shrinking Middle Class gave me more than a little hope. I should be writing editorials about what those who I think have the best solutions to America’s problems; not screaming at the top of my lungs at people who have no grasp upon reality. The stories you should have been glued to over the past few weeks should have been about the alleged “black sites” in Chicago and ever deeper writing about the Mette rape case and the corruption in the South Dakoya Department of Social Services.

hindsight 2374
In Hindsight

I will do better for you. In the end you, the young Progressives in America, are the reason why I do this and I apologize for losing sight of the real reason I am here. So, for the record, and since they will never change their minds, turn their back on bigotry, or even ever admit that their political ideology restricts Americans from living their lives in Freedom and with Justice I have this parting commentary. “Enjoy your petty blog comments victories, your self aggrandizement and even your bloviating conservative media icons. If you think you are winning the hearts and minds of young Americans you are more than delusional you are insane. You are the same people who a short five years ago said that same sex marriage would never be legal in a majority of states. Look where we are now with 37 states and the District of Columbia. You are the same voices that shouted epithets at children as they walked to schools decades ago. You, conservatives are the past; Progressives are the future.”

BLOGS FOR VICTORY OFFLINE

Posted in 2016 US ELECTION, BLOGS 4 VICTORY, SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS, SARAH PALIN with tags , , , , , on 25/01/2015 by sarahbloch

blochadvocate_7

The Internet child of Matt Margolis and Mark Edward Noonan, BlogsforVictory, which began as BlogsforBush a digital apologist for the unjust war in Iraq, is down as of midnight last night. There is no explanation I can find except they didn’t update their account at GoDaddy.com. I am sure they will whip out a credit card and renew the blog and return to their opining about what’s wrong with Terra from an authoritarian conservative perspective. This blog has fought many wars with them especially socio-political ones. The fact that Noonan cannot bear to see the nude human image was likely the reason anyone who worked for The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork were banned from commenting there. If this is the end of BlogsforVictory I must admit a measure of sadness. Nothing made me happier than reading Noonan’s predictions of conservatives winning presidential elections only to see him have to eat his words on the following Wednesday. The hypocritical gut twisting the likes of Amazona, tiredoflibbs and Count d’Haricots were forced to engage in as the war in Iraq went south due to no WMDs being found. At the start of B4B back before the turn of the century conservatives likely thought they had a renaissance on their hands in the first decade of the new century. 9/11 reinforced that for them. Then the grand social pendulum started to swing toward the Progressives. Same sex marriage and abortion rights are still law in America even though the latter has seen states chip away at a woman’s right to choose. Over the last six years the two electoral victories of President Barack Hussein Obama has lit the fuse to the bomb that will eventually blow up the GOP and fracture the Right irreparably for at least a generation. BlogsforVictory, and blogs like them that required conservative ideological purity, have been more responsible for the coming demise of the GOP than any action by President Obama, Progressive elected officials or even Liberal bloggers like me. Maybe Noonan and his fellow travelers in theocratic conservative authoritarianism will rally behind a single candidate that they wish to see elected the nominee in 2016. Palin isn’t a favorite for Noonan; nor is Dr Ben Carson but I could see a BlogsforCruz2016 rising from the ashes of B4V in the coming months filled with the same improbable enthusiasm that they had for McCain and Romney over the last two election cycles. If there is one thing I can give them credit for after so many poor predictions is that they are consistent in their blind belief that they are the majority in the face of proof to the contrary.

FROM THE DESK OF THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF: HOW CAN “PRO-LIFE” PEOPLE FEEL MORE OUTRAGE OVER LOOTING AND VANDALISM THAN THE MURDER OF A YOUNG MAN?

Posted in MICHAEL BROWN MURDER with tags , , , , , on 13/08/2014 by Cavalor Epthith, Esquire, D.S.V.J

cavalor_hooves

This is the question that has been in my mind over the last 48 hours. This question has been in my mind because I seriously doubt if the people who I have read complaining about the burning of a convenience store after the murder of a young man by a police officer have any compassion for Human Beings. A single photo that I have seen on the Internet distills my concern for the state of America’s minority young men:

Michael Brown 9 Aug 14

Conservatives and their pro-gun acolytes are trying desperately to make this the fault of Michael Brown Jr. To these people it must have been a case of the yet unnamed police officer defending himself. That Brown did not have a weapon and did not have access to a weapon is apparently irrelevant to those who feel that their “way of life” has been threatened from the very day President Barack Obama won the 2008 election. As dismayed as I am to say this I believe that this is the last straw for America’s cities and their long oppressed and misunderstood minority populations. Marginalized for long decades even after civil rights legislation made overt racism illegal these Human Beings are n ow in the digital age being vilified for simply existing.

Conservatives feel cornered in their suburban homes surrounded by the wealth of a middle class existence but they lack the real power that they crave. A few generations ago they answered only to their own kind; their governments reflected back to them their bigotry in the form of a corporate attired face from their tribe and any resistance by the “other” in the name of simply being treated as Human was crushed with an iron fist. Today the tactics used by those who would deprive citizens of their most basic of civil rights are no longer a fist of iron but a vest of Kevlar, a tactical uniform, an automatic weapon and armored personnel carriers in a town of less than 25,000 people.

For many conservatives in America this is a frightening time. Some do not want this to be exposed as an event of bigotry for their own political reasons while others work to make the victim in this horrible situation appear to deserve the execution he received. Both are on the wrong side of history because that long stream is flowing toward those who are different from you and away from your centuries of wasted privilege.

Conservatives are not the enemies of Progressives; they are simply ideologues who have an opposing viewpoint of what methods are best used to determine the course of the American experiment. I don’t believe that all Conservatives are evil or are even driven by racial or social bigotries while those traits are a common thread in their, in my opinion, base as it applies to the current President of the United States. I believe that all people have the capacity to become what Conservatives would consider immoral. I think it was immoral personally for President Clinton to get a blow job from Monica Lewinsky while married to Hillary Rodham Clinton. Yet I still respect and admire and yes forgive him, even though it’s none of my business, for those actions because he was and is a great politician in many other ways.

Progressives can understand that Human Beings have flaws and can still be Human Beings. There is no moral purity test regarding sex for Progressives it appears to be one for Conservatives which they fail miserable at day in and day out. To me as a Progressive sex is as natural a daily function as breathing; to Conservatives it appears sex is something so traumatic and fraught with the potential for embarrassment that it has to be sanctioned by a deity of one’s own choosing and kept locked in a box until a ceremony is performed. A commitment to love a person, or even persons, for life is a powerful thing that I respect and live by; to make it a golden cage to lock up the sexuality of women simply for the pleasure of men is a crime against Humanity.

That brings me to the true nature of how I see the modern American Conservative as a creature driven by greed. It’s not just the money or the sex or that sweaty palmed feeling of delight they get by having their grip on the levers of power and social control alone. It’s a combination of the ability to judge others while not being judged themselves that plays a major part in the Conservative pantheon of hypocrisies. The ability to rewrite history [Reagan had extramarital affairs, smoked pot, gave amnesty to undocumented immigrants and grew the size of government] and define their opposition in terms that cannot be proven with facts all the while appealing to the highest authority, the Creator of the Universe who can condemn you to and Eternity of Fire and Suffering, which can punish all those to stray from their control.

Some Conservatives call Progressives a collective or hive mind. In reality take a look at the long list of members of the GOP who have given the slightest indication that they would work with President Obama on any issue and you will see the long knives out to slice those “traitors” and RINOs to ribbons. if the president gave ever American a puppy and a pound of gold the Americans for Cats and Platinum Party would spring to life overnight as an allegedly grassroots organization brought to life by a Sean Hannity closing comment on his Fox News ahow about how platimun is so much prettier than gold and how much more affectionate kittens are than puppies. FreedomWorks would then hire a fuckable looking blond in her early thirties with a calming Midwestern accent to be their face and posters would be dotting every intersection in the flyover states with a picture of an adorable kitten and an American Liberty platinum coin.

Conservatives now need even more help to get their message of fear and loathing out to their 37 million strong die hard, yet dying base. Black crime reports scare the shit out of conservative men and women alike. The reality of America is that a conservative white man or woman is far more likely to be killed by someone they know that is white, quite often from their own community in these places or die by their own hand than by the hand of a black man or a Latino. I’m not saying it never happens people are often found in places where the ignorant tenth of a group of people can cause them harm. But the facts are crystal clear on the matter of what most often kills white Americans in an unnatural manner–another white person, themselves, and usually with a legal firearm.

While MSNBC is clearly the Progressive version of Fox News, politically, it works for many young Progressives because they at least present facts when they show the Right where it has gone wrong. It isn’t propaganda when you show an unedited clip of a conservative woman saying that she doesn’t want niggers around her and then refusing to apologize for it–that’s called a news story. it is propaganda when a failed VP candidate is given time to explain why her home spun idea that President should be Impeached for violating her beliefs in what the Founding Fathers of America meant two hundred plus years ago.

hindsight 2158
In Hindsight

I write this article today as a direct response to Cluster at BlogsForVictory not to try to convince him that he’s on the wrong side of history. This article is about what people believe. On my side I have diversity and the ultimate freedom to be yourself and live your life the way you wish within the law of the land. On their side you have to live not only by the law of the government, but the codified bigotries of a religion raised to state religion by their requirement, the laws of an entire gender because this is the only way they can control female sexuality and the laws of their own greed which says to all unlike them “you must work” all the while hanging a sign in their shops that says “Niggers, Faggots, Dykes, Wetbacks and Atheists need not apply.”

THE HOBBY LOBBY SCOTUS DECISION HAS UNFORESEEN CONSEQUENCES FOR CONSERVATIVES

Posted in FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, HOBBY LOBBY, IN HINDSIGHT, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM with tags , , , on 01/07/2014 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

fredschwartz1

In the recent SCOTUS decision, 5-4 in favor of Hobby Lobby’s right not to provide contraception to female employees conservatives have won a battle and marched toward losing a broader unseen war. The decision is a great relief valve for the Right which of recent has been bombarded with rulings from Federal Courts that go against their core “values.” Yesterday, the Internet was ablaze with joyous proclamations from conservatives about this first brick being pulled from the temple of Obamacare.

anti mosque

The reality of the ruling is that it is rooted in two legal foundations. The first, is that it supports the federal nature of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. This act grants assurances that religious freedom in America will be protected against government intervention. If that is the case now you will see individuals who want to have mosques built in regions of the United States where bigotry exists against Muslims using this law as a foundation for arguing in favor of their religious beliefs. Conservative opponents of these mosques being built will argue that this is a step toward Sharia Law which of course it is not. The next time such a matter comes before a court I hope the judge reminds the conservatives of the Hobby Lobby decision.

Second is the far more political boring issue of what a closely held corporation is. Now I’ve read about a pound of articles about what a closely held corporation is and let me tell you it led to some of the best sleep I’ve had in ages. Since I’m not a business guy I’ll leave that definition to the experts:

A type of business corporation that is owned and operated by a small group of people.

A closed corporation is also known as a close corporation, a family corporation, an incorporated partnership, and a chartered partnership. In this type of corporation all of the functions are usually performed by the same parties. These individuals serve as shareholders, officers, and directors and are involved in the management and operation of the business. A closed corporation differs from a publicly held corporation since its stock is neither issued nor traded to the public at large.

hindsight 2206
In Hindsight

I think this is a travesty from a political standpoint that religious beliefs of corporations [they have religious beliefs too?] trump the medical needs of the employees of those corporations. Makes me wonder if corporations are people are the employees cells and groups of employees organs?? Anyway, every political victory won in the courts has a consequence. That Truth applies to Progressives and Conservatives alike.

I am currently reading John Nolte’s article on 11 reasons the Left has not won the Culture War at Breitbart.com. Simply reading this is making my day because I love to laugh in the morning. Millions of conservatives have likely read this today and more than a thousand have commented. Those comments will be covered by Fred Schwartz later in the day.

Nolte begins with same sex marriage which I see as a full faith and credit legal issue not a moral and religious one. I don’t think, however, that any shop owner has a right to refuse service to a gay couple anymore than they have the right to refuse service to a person based on their race, religion, gender or disability. The author feels that the “voice of the people” has been tossed out in favor of the rulings of “activist judges.” In a bizarre twist John Nolte points to a rise in “Christian entertainment” as proof that Americans really do not want people they do not know of the same sex to get married. The singular example is the film “Heaven is for Real” which has grossed nothing yet because the film is to be released today. Nolte’s point is that Sony TriStar Pictures has decided to release the film on a Wednesday in 2,417 theaters. This film and others like it are one point Nolte shows as proof that on the topic of same sex marriage the Right is winning. I will make a claim here: Heaven is for Real will not make more money between its premiere and the end of the box office weekend than “Transcendence” will make from its opening until Sunday night on a theater by theater basis.

The next Culture War issue is the legalization of marijuana. Both Washington state and Colorado have legalized the weed most notorious to conservatives and more states are moving to decriminalize small amounts. Most recently the state of Maryland did just that becoming the first state south of the Dixon-Line to decriminalize pot. Fourteen other states and the District of Columbia have also done so. Nolte does not address any of the medical reasons for pot use or even recreational ones as a justification for a victory here in the Culture war. Instead he states that abortion rights activists are on their heels quoting an article on Breitbart.com no less about a poll conducted by the Knights of Columbus regarding abortion rights. The Gallup Polling Service numbers show that those who view themselves as pro-Life vice those that are pro-Choice are nearly equal at 48% to 45%. The numbers of those seeing abortion as federally defined from the same poll vice those who do not believe abortion should be legal at all is 52% vice 20% as of May 2013. Nolte loses this battle as well.

Nolte sticks with entertainment decrying the amount of sex on television but reveling in what he calls the return of the masculine male on the National Geographic Channel. These shows according to the author “celebrate the working class and their traditional values.” What he really means is they celebrate being white, Christian and living in the woods or where it’s very cold. The next “reason” the Right is winning the Culture War is the ascendancy of Jimmy Fallon to the Tonight Show as a counter to Stephen Colbert stepping into David Letterman’s slot after his retirement next year. There is no rhyme or reason to this at all.

The next nugget reveals something about conservatives. They like strong male characters. Nolte point to Don Draper [Mad Men] Walter White [Breaking Bad] and Tony Soprano [The Sopranos] as examples of these. They are called “flawed” and “anti-heroes” and I imagine that takes the guilt away for all the nudity, sex, drugs and violence which conservative say they are against on TV.

More entertainment, really? Miley Cyrus is popular but unions are dying says Nolte. I fear conservatives may never come out of this irrational abyss. As if the weakness of unions in America is a good thing for those working class people they say they love?

Conservative media is on the upswing says Nolte. Well get back to me in 20 years when most Fox News viewers are either dead or senile or have slaughtered their family. There is a trend in there demographically if you just take the time to look.

Women are getting birth control but conservatives have their guns! This is awful. War on women much? The fear of the Other is oozing here.

Nolte sees more money in politics as a solution to what ails the Right politically. No John, the key would be to make your tent bigger. Oh, that’s right you can’t do that because you’d have to let in all those brown people, women and gay people on a level playing field.

Yes, Occupy is dead but given time the TEA Party will wither as well. I think the date on that tombstone will be somewhere around 1 February 2017.

What John Nolte needs is a time machine so he can return to that conservative era of his father the 1950s. Back then by conservative standards women were in their place (not barefoot and pregnant but seen and not heard), minorities were second class citizens and it was a crime to be gay. It must be awful for John Nolte to have to watch as all that unearned privilege is redistributed in the form of earned civil rights.
