Stupid Things

150724obama-prison

President Obama visited a prison near Oklahoma City last week. He thinks sentences for non-violent crimes are too long. He calls it the “criminal injustice system”. He wants us to be like other countries. He says it’s not normal for so many young people to be locked up.

What is normal is teenagers do stupid things.

Don’t Crush

Planned Parenthood defends itself by saying the organs harvested from aborted fetuses go to research that saves lives. If that’s the case it’s a generational wealth and health transfer. Most of the saved lives belong to older people. The survival rate of the fetuses is zero.

Kirsten Powers, in a column titled “Crush Planned Parenthood”, quotes a friend:

My friend and former Obama White House staffer Michael Wear tweeted, “It should bother us as a society that we have use for aborted human organs, but not the baby that provides them.”

Ken Blackwell says that when it comes to abortion, black lives don’t matter.

Military Soft Targets

It’s not surprising that schools and theaters would be considered soft targets for sickos and terrorists. But U.S. military bases? The men and women gunned down in the “workplace violence” at Fort Hood were unarmed. So were the four Marines and a sailor killed by an Islamic extremist at two Navy recruitment centers in Chattanooga.

Planned Parenthood Parts is Parts

Parts is parts to Deborah Nucatola.

Nucatola is the senior director of medical research at Planned Parenthood. She was caught on video discussing her method for harvesting body parts from the babies she aborts.

“I’d say a lot of people want livers”, she explained while swirling a glass of wine. In order to deliver quality parts Nucatola uses ultrasound to locate an organ and then “crushes” the baby above and below the desired part.

This use of ultrasound outraged Michele Malkin.

Think about that. Planned Parenthood has officially declared it “torture” for women to see their unborn children through ultrasound before submitting to abortion.

Her point is that Planned Parenthood fights  laws requiring that women be shown fetal ultrasounds before an abortion can be performed.

Others were at pains to point out that this is all legal. Maybe but it seems a little beside the point.

Here’s Kevin Williamson, in National Review:

Abortion is a brutal business — emphasis on business. Planned Parenthood takes in a half-billion dollars a year in government money; its financial footprint is the same size as that of the NCAA.

Iranian Conventional Arms Embargo

150715-iranian-conventional-arms-embargoAs part of  the Obama nuclear agreement, Iran made a last minute pitch to end the conventional arms embargo.  Grinning Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif got what he wanted and more. The deal calls for the E.U. to also lift sanctions on the Iranian Republican Guard and the Quds Force.

At least 500 Americans were killed in Iraq by Iranian made Explosively Formed Penetrators. EFP’s are a more sophisticated version of improvised explosive devices or IED’s.
