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.
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.
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.
As 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.

Illegal immigrant Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez has served 181 months in prison over 15 years. He’s been convicted of seven flelonies and deported five times. After serving each of his various terms was returned to Mexico and then sneaked back over the border for more of the same.
The Lopez-Sanchez round trip crime tour came to an end April 15. Rather than ship him back to Mexico again, a local sheriff released him onto the streets of San Fransisco. At that point Lopez-Sanchez would have been untouchable, San Fransisco being a Sanctuary City. But he claimed he found a gun and shot 32 year old Kate Steinle while she walked with her father.
Here’s Michael Daly’s account in a Daily Beast story slugged The Murder Shaking San Francisco’s Liberal Soul.
A memorial for Kate Steinle was held on Thursday. Family and friends told stories of an adventurous, exuberant, and uncommonly kind young woman. They had a phrase for the sunny, uplifting impact she seemed to have on everybody, wherever her wide travels took her:
“The Kate effect.”
Sid Blumenthal turned over email he had sent to Hillary Clinton. This was email Hillary had apparently failed to turn over to the committee herself. This is interesting because Blumenthal’s emails advised Hillary on taking credit for the fall of Qaddafi in Libya. The Obama administration had banned Hillary from hiring Blumenthal as an advisor. Also, the email was sent to Hillary’s private server in violation of State Department rules.
Hillary claims she turned over all the email from her private account related to her work as Secretary of State. A WSJ editorial says, “This must depend on the definition of “all”… “
