Hillary (Hearts) Margaret Sanger

On Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood's highest honor: the Margaret Sanger Award.

She told guests at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America's annual conference in Houston that women's reproductive and health rights is "an important part of U.S. efforts to develop democracy around the world and defeat extremism." And she praised the work of Margaret Sanger:

Now, I have to tell you that it was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision. Another of my great friends, Ellen Chesler, is here, who wrote a magnificent biography of Margaret Sanger called Woman of Valor. And when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.

Al ‘Bear’s Gore-Spiller’ spurns Earth Hour

I have another word for AlGore: HYPOCRITE

rom Front Page by
Via Hot Air, I see that notorious, bloodthirsty polar bear-murderer Al Gore is up to his usual environmental violations - take that any way you like - in the pursuit of his destructive lifestyle:
Drew Johnson, president of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research —the same organization that also found Gore’s home consumes 20 times more electricity than the average household — told Yeas & Nays that Gore’s Belle Meade-section mansion did not go dark during the global campaign’s designated hour between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Johnson did admit that although it wasn’t as bright as can be, Gore did have on “a dozen or so” floodlights on his trees, a light shining on his address number, and a noticeable “bluish glow” from his powered-on televisions and computers coming from inside his house.
That bluish glow was probably actually Cerenkov radiation: Gore’s just the sort of Gaia-denying hypocrite to have a secret nuclear reactor in his basement. After all, a man who’d have a kill rating of four millibears a year from his personal lifestyle alone can’t be trusted at all.  Besides, as the photo to the side shows, he’s not even willing to turn off the light that shows his street address.  As if any one in the area could miss it, what with the unholy glow of his profligate energy potlach obscuring the clean, night-time Tennessee sky.
Of course, the Gores sent out one of their minions to deny the evidence of Gore’s blatant energy waste, but you can see the picture above for yourself, so ask yourself this: why, oh why, must we be subjected to this man’s abiding contempt for our green, beautiful Earth-parent? What horrible in the past twisted Al Gore, and made him such a ruthless scourge of the gaiasphere? Why does he look upon this beautiful, innocent photo…

…and feel only a black, oily rage?
Why, Al Gore?

Telling CO2 Lies to Destroy America

My friend, the internationally famed climatologist Dr. S. Fred Singer, calls them “the CO2 wars.” It is the last ditch attempt by the Greens, under the aegis of the Obama administration, to declare carbon dioxide a pollutant and thus open the door to its regulation.

Singer says such regulation “would be the equivalent of an atomic bomb directed at the U.S. economy—all without any scientific justification.”

I am increasingly of the opinion that the main goal of the Obama administration through CO2 regulation, exploding deficits, punishing taxation, and any other means at their disposal is the destruction of the economy and the complete control of impoverished Americans.

Acquitting the Killers

Abortionist George Tiller’s trial is over and the jury has rendered a verdict of “not guilty.”

It’s what we mean by a culture of death…The way we operate, at every level of society, favors death. The poison of abortion permeates the electoral process (resulting in public officials who support the killing); it permeates the educational institutions (who then invite and honor pro-abortion public officials); and the courts (putting people like Pastor Walter Hoye in jail and acquitting killers like George Tiller.)

Tiller belongs in jail. We have to understand once and for all that abortionists care nothing about pesky provisions of the law like Kansas has to introduce some slight measure of restraint (if we can even call it that) into the process of late-term abortion.

After all, if these abortionists can kill late-term babies and throw their bodies in incinerators in the back room after sometimes having the parents take locks of hair from these children after they are dressed up in post-abortion baptismal garments – well, then, their consciences are dead.

In reality, Mr. Tiller, you are not acquitted at all. You’re killing babies, and the verdict of the court of heaven is against you.

Time still permits you to repent. We will work and pray for that, and at the same time we will continue to persuade your “clients” not to let you near their children.

Obama fires Government Motors CEO

The socialization of our country has begun. I am sure Obama's teleprompter will shortly have a press conference stating we are now the USSA (United Socialist States of America) to more fully align with our agenda 

from American Thinker

Rick Moran
The CEO of GM (Government Motors) was fired by the president of the United States. For those old fuddy duddies out there who may think this a danger to free market capitalism, American liberty, and common sense (not to mention those of us who love nice looking automobiles), I say relax and get with the program.

As this report clearly shows, if the government is in for a penny, it is in for a billion - or several billion as this case may be:

The administration's auto team announced the departure of Mr. Wagoner on Sunday. In a summary of its findings, the task force added that it doesn't believe Chrysler is viable as a stand-alone company, and suggested that the best chance for success for both GM and Chrysler "may well require utilizing the bankruptcy code in a quick and surgical way."
The move also indicates that the Treasury Department intends to wade more deeply than most observers expected into the affairs of the country's largest and oldest car company.
After spending billions of dollars to prop up these dying giants, now the government gets ambitious and may seek to assist them through the bankruptcy process. And apparently, the government is going to shower more money on GM and Chrysler to "tide them over:"
The administration said it would provide the company sufficient working capital for 60 more days, during which a revamped GM board and top management has to put forward a much more rigorous restructuring plan than it submitted last month.
"The administration is prepared to stand by GM throughout this process to ensure that GM emerges with a fresh start and a promising future," according to term sheets released by the White House Monday morning.
Administration officials made it clear that an expedited and heavily supervised bankruptcy reorganization was still very much a possibility for both companies. One official, speaking of GM, compared such a proceeding to a "quick rinse" that could rid the company of much of its debt and contractual obligations.
Any bankruptcy proceeding would stick it to debt and bond holders of GM but no word on making the unions pay a price for their part in this debacle. Since the forecast for hell calls for steady temperatures above the boiling point of water, it is not likely a quick freeze will come to the nether regions anytime soon thus making it an impossibility for hell to freeze over before unions get the same treatment as GM bond holders.

Meanwhile, we better get used to Obama being the final arbiter in hiring and firing of CEO's. And this gives me an idea. Since the government needs revenue - a lot of revenue - maybe Obama could set up an employment agency for CEO's at the White House. Sort of like a for executives he throws under the bus. 

The franchise rights alone could retire the national debt.

Closing Ranks on Canon 915: Bishops Confirm that Sebelius Should Not Receive Communion

Commentary by Deal W. Hudson    

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius received some good news last week when abortionist Dr. George Tiller was found not guilty of breaking state laws regulating late-term abortion. The relationship between Tiller and Sebelius would surely have played a role in her upcoming confirmation hearings had he been found guilty.

But Governor Sebelius got some bad news as well -- something not noticed much in Catholic media or the secular press. The bishops of Washington, D.C., and Arlington, Virginia, confirmed publicly they would uphold the declaration of her ordinary, Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, stating that Governor Sebelius should not present herself for communion.

A spokeswoman for the Washington Archdiocese, Susan Gibbs, said Archbishop Donald Wuerl would expect Sebelius to follow Bishop Naumann's request while in Washington. Joelle Santolla, spokeswoman for the Arlington Diocese, announced that Bishop Paul Loverde would expect the same while she was in Northern Virginia.

That Archbishop Wuerl and Bishop Loverde would back up Bishop Naumann in regard to the future Secretary of Health and Human Services is a significant development in the effort of some bishops to enforce Canon 915: "Those upon whom the penalty of excommunication or interdict has been imposed or declared, and others who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, are not to be admitted to holy communion."
