The ugly truth about “Pro-Choice”

Planned parenthood receives our tax dollars. Its founder, Margaret Sanger’s ideals and values do not reflect those of this nation, and I would imagine they do not reflect the values of the majority of Americans either, even those who identify as “pro-Choice”. Zion’s Trumpet has a quote from Sanger that will shock those of you who have never studied her ideals. There is also a quote from our president about Planned parenthood. Ask yourself does he not know the story behind this group, or does he support it. Consider that he voted AGAINST a bill banning partial birth abortions


In 1997, Obama voted in the Illinois Senate against SB 230, a bill designed to prevent partial-birth abortions. In the US Senate, Obama has consistently voted to expand embryonic stem cell research. He has voted against requiring minors who get out-of-state abortions to notify their parents. The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) gives Obama a 100% score on his pro-choice voting record in the Senate for 2005, 2006, and 2007.

Obama has consistently refused to support legislation that would define an infant who survives a late-term induced-labor abortion as a human being with the right to live. He insists that no restriction must ever be placed on the right of a mother to decide to abort her child.

On March 30, 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator who rose to speak against a bill that would have protected babies who survived late term labor-induced abortion. Obama rose to object that if the bill passed, and a nine-month-old fetus survived a late-term labor-induced abortion was deemed to be a person who had a right to live, then the law would “forbid abortions to take place.” Obama further explained the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not allow somebody to kill a child, so if the law deemed a child who survived a late-term labor-induced abortion had a right to live, “then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”

Here is audio of Obama talking about late-term abortions

The money quote: as Illinois state senator Barack Obama so touchingly put it, there was “movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead.”

While anonymity has a downside as illustrated by the vast majority of childish, idiotic, or just plain spiteful internet comments, anonymity also provides people with the freedom to express their positions without any inhibitions.  It is the conversational equivalent of the secret ballot.

After the aborted Worker’s Free Choice Act advocating eliminating secret ballots in union organizing votes, how long is it before the Chicago machine starts advocating open political votes?  After all it makes it so much easier to reward your friends and punish your opposition.

Don’t you just love the Left? They love them some freedom of speech, until they disagree with the speech


Just follow the money

When asking why Obama does certain things, we need to ask ourselves this question, who benefits? It seems that there is a pattern of some very rich people making huge profits because of Obama’s decisions. I guess those 1%ers are of more concern to our president than creating jobs for working Americans. First it was Warren Buffet reaping the rewards from killing the Keystone XL Pipeline. Then, yesterday, Team Obama unveiled a proposal for natural-gas powered vehicles  and an interesting figure might stand to profit, big time

The proposal would offer incentives for companies to buy and use trucks powered by natural gas. Obama announced the effort at a UPS facility in Las Vegas that received stimulus funding to buy natural gas vehicles and build a fueling station for them.

The proposal is remarkably similar to the New Alternative Transportation to Give Americans Solutions (NAT GAS) Act.

One company that stands to benefit handsomely from the president’s proposal is Westport Innovations. The company converts diesel engines to be fueled by natural gas. Wall Street analysts predicted a boom for the company if the NAT GAS Act were passed. CNBC analyst Jim Cramer said he “expects shares to absolutely explode” in the event the legislation were to pass.

And take a wild guess who is a major stock holder in Westport is George Soros. Soros’s hedge fund holds 3,160,063 company shares. And, Soros is, as we know, a major supporter and donor to Obama. Now, there is nothing wrong with making money, but Soros hates America, and Capitalism, I mean he loves him some OWS especially the violent aspects of it apprently

As the U.S. economy continues to deteriorate, anger will grow and rioting in the streets is sure to follow. “It’s already started,” he says. “Yes, yes, yes,” Soros adds “almost gleefully,” Newsweek writer John Arlidge editorializes.

For years Soros has longed for an opportunity to transform America into a socialist state. “The system we have now has actually broken down, only we haven’t quite recognized it and so you need to create a new one and this is the time to do it,” he said in 2009 as he created the Institute for New Economic Thinking with a $50 million endowment.

This Communist sympathizer co-founded the ultra-secretive Democracy Alliance, a billionaires’ club that funds leftist political infrastructure. He has said that European-style socialism “is exactly what we need now” and favors American decline. Soros praises Red China effusively, saying the totalitarian nation has “a better-functioning government than the United States.”

Ah, a radical Leftist who supports Obama? Who could have seen that coming? The question is, if Soros loathes Capitalism, and loves Socialism so much, why is he willing to reap “windfall profits” from such a venture? Is there no consistency on the Left? Well, we know the Left has no consistency. Soros is an elitist who wishes to dictate how others should live, and how much money they ought to make. Those rules he would set, of course, never apply to him. Like Al Gore, who can demonize SUV owners for “killing the planet” while he lives in a massive mansion and takes private jets all over the world, Soros  can bash the economic system that makes him rich as an evil thing. And why not? Soros is the kind of  “useful idiot” that Lennin loved

We know that Soros is a man who hates America, and individual liberty. Human Events took a look at Soros and what he supports, and the evidence of his hatred for the U.S. is startling

Soros started the Open Society Institute in 1993 as a way to spread his wealth to progressive causes.  Using Open Society as a conduit, Soros has given more than $7 billion to a who’s who of left-wing groups.  This partial list of recipients of Soros’ money says it all: ACORN, Apollo Alliance, National Council of La Raza, Tides Foundation, Huffington Post, Southern Poverty Law Center, Soujourners, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood, and the National Organization for Women.

Do a search on some of those organizations and you will see just how out there Soros is. Now, if Soros is such a radical, and he clearly is, then it ought to frighten us all to look at Soros support of President Obama. And, as Human Events points out, Soros locked onto Obama very early

Soros once said that removing President George W. Bush from office in 2004 was the “central focus of my life.”  He put his money where his mouth is, giving $23.58 million to various 527 groups dedicated to defeating Bush.  His early financial support helped jump-start Barack Obama’s political career.  Soros hosted a 2004 fund-raiser for Obama when he was running for the Illinois Senate and gave the maximum-allowed contribution within hours of Obama’s announcement that he was running for President.

So Soros did not jump on the Obama bandwagon after he Obama won the election, or even after he was nominated. He was in Obama’s corner when Obama ran for the Illinois Senate! Clearly Soros saw something he liked about Obama. And considering the causes and ideologies that Soros embraces……………
