VIDEO Blocked Planned Parenthood Video May Show ‘Prima Facie Evidence Of Born Alive Infants’ – Pro-Lifers, Be Wary of McConnell

Stem Express admits receiving “fully intact fetuses,” says investigator David Daleiden

Planned Parenthood is under fire for harvesting organs for sale from the babies they abort, but the journalistic project uncovering their participation in fetal organ trafficking has brought another nefarious aspect to the organ trade.

Remember what Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, said in her meeting with people she believed to be purchasers of organs? Here’s an image from the video released earlier this week:

She says, “Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure, then we are intact.” According to the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains “does not use digoxin or other feticide in its 2nd trimester procedures” so “any intact deliveries before an abortion are potentially born-alive infants under federal law.”

While mainstream journalists continue to be reluctant about pursuing angles to this story, the journalist behind the project shared why he believes one of the companies that purchases aborted baby parts is desperate to keep him from publishing the story:

Remember, the Los Angeles Superior Court issued a limited, temporary restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress. Under the terms of the order, the non-profit organization is banned from releasing video of a May lunch attended by three StemExpress officials. Daleiden says about that:

In a meeting with their top leadership where their leadership admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.

The videotaped admission of this receipt of fully intact fetuses is what Stem Express is fighting so hard to suppress, Daleiden says. Whether they’re successful or not, now we may have a better understanding of why they’re trying to get the courts to keep this information hidden.

The full video is worth watching as well:

Undercover investigator David Daleiden tells CNN the reason StemExpress is trying to suppress the video he took of its CEO on May 22 is because the company doesn’t want anyone to know it bought whole intact dead babies from Planned Parenthood.

Daleiden said on CNN, “In a meeting with their top leadership, they admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.”

On May 22, Daleiden and his team had lunch with StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer and other senior personnel from the company that is the main buyer of freshly killed baby parts from Planned Parenthood. As the Center for Medical Progress has released videos, four so far, it is certain that anyone who met with Daleiden, who was posing as CEO of a fictitious company called BioMax, would become worried about what they might have said. Apparently StemExpress talked about things that may shock America and any future stockholders of the as-yet privately held company.

StemExpress filed a lawsuit against Daleiden earlier this week in hopes of stopping the video and other material from being distributed. They are claiming the meeting was confidential and that Daleiden signed a confidentiality agreement. A Superior Court Judge in Los Angeles rejected one claim by StemExpress outright on Monday evening, but ordered a very narrow temporary restraining order related to that one video on Tuesday.

It is now clear why StemExpress is fighting so hard to suppress the video.

Planned Parenthood Scandal: Second Abortion Group Tries to Block Release of Sting Videos
National Abortion Federation files injunction
July 31, 2015 by Paul Joseph Watson

A second abortion organization is attempting to block the release of embarrassing videos obtained by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) – the group behind the Planned Parenthood exposé.

The National Abortion Federation filed an injunction today in the US District Court of the Northern District of California against CMP, just two days after bioservice firm StemExpress obtained a court order blocking the release of footage which purportedly shows officials from StemExpress discussing organ harvesting.

Responding to the court order, CMP asserted that, StemExpress was “attempting to use meritless litigation to cover-up this illegal baby parts trade, suppress free speech, and silence the citizen press reporting on issues of burning concern to the American public.”

According to the CMP’s David Daleiden, StemExpress is trying to block the release of the video because it proves babies were born alive before having their organs harvested.

In a press release, the National Abortion Federation stated that it had, “Filed suit today in federal court seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction which would prohibit the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), David Daleiden, and others from releasing recordings and materials they illegally obtained at NAF’s educational meetings.”

“The Center for Medical Progress must have a sting video from National Abortion Federation meetings. And NAF doesn’t want it released!,”writes Jim Hoft.

Yesterday, the Center for Medical Progress released another Planned Parenthood video exposé which showed employees pushing aborted baby parts around a petri dish while joking about how the body was “war torn.”

“Another boy!” joked another medical assistant.

The footage shows Rocky Mountains Medical Director Savita Ginde suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences of selling body parts while negotiating a deal based on different body parts, contradicting claims by Planned Parenthood that only transfer and shipping costs are taken into consideration during such negotiations.
Pro-Lifers, Be Wary of Mitch McConnell on Planned Parenthood
July 31, 2015 By: Erick Erickson (Diary)

I saw Al Mohler of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary tweet out this link earlier today. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 61% is calling on Planned Parenthood being defunded.

I hope McConnell will stick with this, even at the risk of President Obama shutting down the government in the fight. But we should remember that we are at this point because of legislation McConnell supported.

In 1991, Democrats introduced legislation to allow tissue donation for experimentation from elective abortions. President George H. W. Bush was vehemently opposed to the legislation. Nonetheless, it passed the House of Representatives with 274 votes.

It also passed the Senate with Mitch McConnell voting for the legislation.

McConnell again voted for the legislation after a conference committee reconciled the House and Senate versions.

President Bush stuck to his guns and vetoed the legislation, which the House of Representatives failed to override on June 24, 1992.

On June 25, 1992, one day later, the legislation was again introduced in the Senate. On October 2, 1992, Mitch McConnell joined the Democrats in support of fetal tissue sales. Luckily, Senators, including Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) 47% and Jesse Helms filibustered and ran out the clock.

But it was reintroduced on January 21, 1993, the day after Bill Clinton’s inauguration. It passed the Senate on February 18, 1993, with McConnell’s vote. It passed the House and was signed into law by Bill Clinton on June 10, 1993.

Again, George H. W. Bush and conservatives opposed the legislation because it used federal tax dollars to do research on aborted children from Planned Parenthood. McConnell stood with the Democrats in support of the legislation.

I hope he has learned his lesson and will fight on this hill, even risking blame in the media for a government shutdown, but the pro-life movement should be wary of promises.

Trump Stumps Media Kingmakers – GOP Est Insiders: Trump Will Be Out Before Iowa

trump palin
Exclusive, Palin: Trump Stumps Media Kingmakers
31 Jul 2015 by Sarah Palin

What a hoot to watch pundits clutching their pearls and whimpering for smelling salts aghast over the latest “shocking” thing Donald Trump said, while The Donald ignores them and continues to soar. Silly kingmakers just don’t know what to make of this. Well, we do!

The elites are shocked by Trump’s dominance, but everyday Americans aren’t. Everywhere I’ve gone this summer, including motorsport events in Detroit full of fed up Joe Six-Pack Americans, the folks I meet commiserate about wussified slates of politicians, but then unsolicited, they whisper their appreciation for Trump because he has the guts to say it like it is.

Trump’s unconventional candidacy is a shot in the arm for ordinary Americans fed up with the predictable poll tested blather of squishy milquetoast career politicians who campaign one way and govern another. But it’s not just how Trump says it, it’s what he’s saying.

Trump has tapped into America’s great populist tradition by speaking to concerns of working class voters. He talks about fighting to bring back our factories. When was the last time a candidate talked passionately about reclaiming our manufacturing base (and knew what he was talking about)? What other candidate chooses American workers over the multinational corporations donating to their campaigns? Who other than Trump is talking about the dangerous trade deficits deindustrializing America and stealing our jobs? The old Arsenal of Democracy that allowed us to win World War II is now such a distant memory that we can’t even build the parts for our own military equipment – we need China to manufacture them for us. How can a great nation maintain its greatness without a manufacturing base? Or without secure borders for that matter?

Trump focused in on two major populist grievances: the loss of working class jobs due to awful trade agreements, and the unfair competition for those jobs – along with security threats – due to the flood of illegal immigrants pouring across unsecured borders.

Now throw in Trump’s candor about “winning” and you understand why his message catches fire. As General Patton said, “Americans play to win all the time.” But those of us outside the Beltway can see that America isn’t winning. Our enemies laugh at us. Our friends can’t rely on us. China is outpacing our military superiority. Putin thumbs his nose at us. ISIS seizes territory our sons and daughters fought and died to liberate. Iran gloats over the idiotic and ultimately catastrophic nuclear deal the White House caved on. Our friends in Israel shake their heads at our betrayal.

Trump diagnoses our problems as incompetent leadership. Who can argue with that? How many politicians promised to secure our borders? So, why aren’t they secured? How many politicians promised to grow American jobs? So, why did they vote for Obamatrade? Is it any wonder that Americans are telling status quo politicians, “You’re fired”?

For everyday Americans the beauty of Trump’s candidacy is that he’s not a politician. There’s hope the guy who wrote “The Art of the Deal” can finally close the deal on all the broken promises of career politicians. Maybe the man who actually builds things, big things, can rebuild America’s entrepreneurial spirit with government put back in its proper place.

The average American doesn’t ask for much. We want security and the freedom to prosper. Many politicians are now offering solutions for security, but what about our prosperity? Trump boasts about his wealth, and average Americans cheer him on. This is the secret the chattering classes will never get. Americans don’t begrudge wealth honestly earned. We celebrate it! Trump made his money the old fashioned way with brick and mortar. He built big buildings and proudly stamped his name on them. He actually created jobs – lots of them. Like so many great American entrepreneurs, Trump has the flair of a showman but the sensibilities of an ordinary guy. He may be a billionaire, but refreshingly, there’s nothing elitist about him. He’s saying to the average Joe, “I worked hard and I succeeded and I want you to also.” That’s the fabric of our national character woven by work ethic and dreams and drive. That’s America!

It’s no surprise pundits and politicos are determined to destroy a candidacy they can’t control or shape with their mere words. Expect marginalization of anyone speaking well of Trump’s efforts. He’s a threat to the permanent political class. Non-traditional candidates always are because when they’re in touch with the people, they show their guts and just do the right thing. They go rogue — and take flak from all sides. Some of us have the scars to prove that.

Thankfully, Americans are on to the media’s games. The politics of personal destruction has lost its shock value. We have serious problems in this country. Ferreting through old divorce records and playing gotcha with past misstatements are just stupid distractions. Shouts of, “But he donated to Democrats!” won’t sway Trump enthusiasts. The man built a skyscraper in New York City – of course, he had donated to Democrats. If he was building it in Salt Lake City, I’m sure he would have donated to Republicans. “But he changed his mind on positions!” Reagan had been an FDR Democrat. Should we hold that against him or be grateful he saw the light?

Itty-bitty pundits thinking it’s clever to mock Americans’ opinions are finding the joke is on them. Cozy in their seat of judgment, blowing each other’s horns, protected by a glass screen. Ask yourself: just who ARE these windbags? And what do they build? Towers of paperclips? Lists of Twitter followers? Trump’s supporters are delightedly defying pithy prim “opinion makers” who think Americans are incapable of choosing our leaders without their dictates. The more the spotlight-seekers smear Trump, the more popular he gets. A friend emailed, “Tell those smart alecks bashing Trump on TV, ‘I love him because YOU hate him!’”

The GOP establishment would do well to listen to these voters and quit dismissing them. Reagan understood these blue-collar salt of the earth Americans. That’s why they gave him two landslide victories. If you want to win again, GOP, you need these good people.

Anticipate more battering and bashing storms around Trump. It’s still very early in the game; folks are keeping their powder dry with candidate support but are quite happy Donald Trump is in the race. More power to you, Donald. Here’s to “Making America Great Again”!

GOP Insiders: Trump Will Be Out Before Iowa
31 Jul 2015 by Mike Flynn

A new National Journal survey of “Republican insiders” finds that 57 percent of these political professionals think Donald Trump will bow out of the Presidential race before the Iowa Caucuses. This survey probably says more about the state of the Republican political class than anything about the 2016 race or Republican voters.

Interestingly, 65 percent of “Democrat insiders” believe Trump will compete in the Iowa Caucuses in February next year.

The survey results could easily be dismissed as both groups answering what they hope will happen. Some Republican campaign professionals offered comments beyond the question:

– “No meteor or political candidate burns that brightly and survives very long.”

– “Unscripted, he will crash and burn by Thanksgiving.”

– “Flavor of the month.”

– “Campaign will probably die of a self-inflicted wound.”

The easiest political prediction to make is that the Trump campaign will implode after some impolitic remark. To date, though, that hasn’t been the case, despite a full-throttled assault by the media and DC’s political class.

Trump currently leads all national polling in the race. His lead has apparently increased even after he made off-the-cuff remarks criticizing Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 43%’s war record. That he has gained support after those remarks should be a sobering wake-up call to the political class.

Peggy Noonan, the Republican establishment’s Greek chorus, has woken up to the realization that the Trump phenomenon — and it is exactly that — is real. She understands something the political class doesn’t:

His rise is not due to his supporters’ anger at government. It is a gesture of contempt for government, for the men and women in Congress, the White House, the agencies.

There are myriad reasons why Trump won’t win the nomination. There are also myriad more reasons why candidates don’t drop out before the Iowa Caucus. The fact that almost 60 percent of professional Republican consultants think that is likely in Trump’s case is more wishful thinking than hard analysis.

True, the national polling this summer is of little consequence to the actual race once voting starts. That said, Trump is polling very strongly in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first states to vote early next year.

Further, it is hard to imagine any new information coming to light that will blunt Trump’s raw appeal to a significant section of Republican voters. Trump has lived his life in the public eye for decades. His bombastic, off-the-cuff, outrageous demeanor is already baked into the cake.

Voters know all of this about him and a large number of them don’t particularly like him, but they like less the thin intellectual gruel that has been served up by the political class for the last several years.

This is the real threat of the Trump campaign. As Noonan observes:

American political establishment, take note: In the past 20 years you have turned America into a nation a third of whose people would make Donald Trump their president. Look on your wonders and despair.

National Journal helpfully lists the political “insiders” included in its survey. It allows us to look on the roll call of the political class and despair.

VIDEO Criminal Illegal Aliens Arrests Increase – Mothers of Children Killed by Illegals Condemn ‘Hate-Filled’ Luis Gutierrez

Criminals “can range anywhere from a hit-and-run, DWI, assault and all the way up to and including murder,” border agent claims
border illegals
July 30, 2015 by Adan Salazar

The percentage of criminal aliens captured entering the country through the US-Mexico border illegally has increased over the past two years, a recent report states.

While US Customs and Border Protection agents along Texas’ southern border say they’ve encountered fewer immigrants with criminal histories this year than in 2014, a report from a CBS affiliate indicates that over the past three years “the likelihood or probability of an agent encountering a criminal has grown.”

“This year we’re at 4,500 criminal immigrants or aliens that we have arrested,” Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol spokesperson Omar Zamora told CBS affiliate “Last year, the same time frame or year to date, we were at 6,000 (criminal immigrants) so we’ve seen about a 1,500 decrease.”

But, however, says according to their research the percentage of criminals contained within those groups, while minimal, has increased steadily.

“Action 4 News crunched the numbers and found that in 2013, fewer than 2.5% of Rio Grande Valley apprehensions were criminals, had gang-related ties, or were sex offenders,” reports Ashley Custer, illustrating their calculations with pie charts.


“In 2014, that percentage grew to just over 3%,” Custer reports.


“In 2015, just over 4.5% of those apprehended by RGV sector agents had a criminal background, were gang members, or were known sex offenders.”


Border agents say they are all too aware of the criminal element.

“The criminal aliens that I’m talking about can range anywhere from a hit-and-run, DWI, assault and all the way up to and including murder,” Zamora said.

“Many times, there’s family reunification or they are looking for some economic prosperity,” said Zamora, adding, “but there’s also that group of individual is coming across to do harm to the citizens here in this country, or they are here to steal, rob and commit other criminal acts.”

Earlier this week, agents in the Rio Grande Valley also reportedly apprehended eight illegal immigrants all convicted of sex crimes, one of which was a pedophile.

The debate over US border security has received increased attention since presidential candidate Donald Trump’s controversial remarks regarding criminal illegal immigrants entering the border from Mexico.

Just last week, Infowars reporters traveled to Laredo, Texas, where they were able to film illegal immigrants swimming across the Rio Grande River within moments of arriving at the border.

The footage served to further validate not only Trump’s earlier remarks, but the general American sentiment among Americans regarding illegal activity on the border.
Exclusive — Mothers of Children Killed by Illegals Condemn ‘Hate-Filled’ Luis Gutierrez
Dem Con Gutierrez
31 July 2015 by Katie McHugh

After Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) 20% exploded with rage at Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies for daring to quote him as saying Kathryn Steinle’s death was a “little thing,” three mothers whose children were murdered by illegal aliens walked out of the hearing in disgust.

Now, those mothers want their voices to be heard.

Brought to Washington by Maria Espinoza’s The Remembrance Project, 13 family members, including the Steinle family, watched as Gutierrez attacked an expert witness testifying to the dangers that hundreds of sanctuary cities pose to Americans.

In exclusive statements to Breitbart News, Laura Wilkerson, Sabine Durden, and Mary Ann Mendoza condemned — in the strongest of terms — Gutierrez’s brutish behavior towards Vaughan.

Wilkerson led the walkout as soon as Gutierrez began to rage at Vaughan for quoting him as saying a woman’s death at the hands an illegal alien was a “little thing.” Her son, Joshua, pictured with murderer — and “DREAMer” Hermilio Moralez below — died under torture on November 16, 2010, after giving Moralez a ride home. Moralez then tied him up and set him on fire, later bragging in court his “killing skills took over.”

Joshua Wilkerson Killer Moralez

Wilkerson testified before another Senate committee on July 21, reading aloud the horrific autopsy while the audience wept. “This was our family’s 9/11 terrorist attack by a foreign invader, whether you want to recognize it or whether you do not,” Wilkerson had said. “This government continues to fail or even recognize that we have an issue. Americans are dying daily at the hands of criminals that we don’t even know are here.”

“My name is Laura Wilkerson. I attended the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security hearing, on Thursday, July 23,” Wilkerson said. “I was appalled at the screaming of Mr. Gutierrez to Jessica Vaughn. I thought he was about as disrespectful of an invited guest, as I have ever seen. I decided at to leave the room until his remarks were over. I was embarrassed for Ms. Vaughn.”

“I could not believe that he wasn’t asked to lower his tone and his visible anger. I think an invited guest or an observer of these hearings would be escorted out by security,” she added.

Sabine Durden, a legal immigrant from Germany, lost her son Dominic, a 9-11 dispatcher, to an illegal alien from Guatemala on July 12, 2012 — an illegal convicted of a felony armed robbery and two DUIs, with no license, insurance, or registration. After an uphill battle, Durden managed to get the savage illegal deported back to Central America. She and her fiancé, Anthony Coulter, helped protest the feds’ attempts to dump more Central American illegals onto communities such as Murietta, California.

dom durden

Durden defended Vaughan from Gutierrez’s bullying, saying he made her “physically sick,” and that he is a “disgrace”:

Jessica Vaughn has been a constant source of support since I testified at a judiciary hearing in Washington, D.C. 2013.

She works diligently, does her research and adds a human touch to such a emotional issue. When she testified about her findings and result of her research, Mr. Gutierrez did not only act hostile toward her, but belittled and scolder her in front of everyone in that room and the millions watching on C-Span.

It was enough for us three moms of murdered children to walk out of the hearing.

He is an embarrassment and disgrace to the position he holds and he should publicly apologize to Mrs. Vaughn and anyone who had to listen to his tirade.

Furthermore, he should apologize to Mr. Steinle and all of us who lost loved ones because of an illegal alien. A few days earlier he spoke about the killing of Kate Steinle and called it a ‘little thing.’ He then sat at he hearing and looked that grieving father in the face proclaiming his deepest condolences. It made me physically sick and Mr. Gutierrez’s ongoing and well-known outburst and unprofessional behavior is no longer tolerated.

Mary Ann Mendoza lost her son Sgt. Brandon Mendoza in May 2014 to an illegal alien from Mexico driving on the wrong side of the highway, blackout drunk with a blood-alcohol three times the legal limit. Raul Silva Corona, also killed in the crash, had lived in the country illegally for at least 20 years, racking up a criminal record. In 1994, he pled guilty in Colorado to criminal conspiracy charges, while prosecutors dismissed other charges such as leaving the scene of an accident, assault, and burglary.


In a letter to President Obama, Mendoza demanded to know why a violent illegal alien was allowed to stay in the country for decades.

“The Federal Government knew he, Raul Silva Corona , was an illegal immigrant when he was convicted on crimes in 1994 in Colorado. The prosecutors were ‘lenient’ on him and several charges were dismissed… Why wasn’t he deported?” Mendoza wrote. “I am furious that the Federal Government allowed this criminal to stay in this country and KILL my son!”

Gutierrez’s furious attacks on Vaughan made Mendoza’s “skin crawl,” she said. “To see this so called Representative of the people of Illinois speak with such hate and disregard for the victims families in the room was unacceptable.”

Mendoza told Breitbart News:

As I sat in the hearing room and heard testimony by Jim Steinle and listened to testimony from Jessica Vaughn, it not only broke my heart buy also brought back some very familiar, gut-wrenching reactions to additional preventable deaths in America at the hands of criminal illegals allowed to stay in this country as my son’s killer was.

As each of the panels members began speaking, they vocalized their sincere condolences to Jim Steinle and proceeded to go over their thoughts and their support of stopping the federal funding to Sanctuary Cities as one way to prevent some of the tragic deaths that happen as illegal criminals are released back onto our streets with the high percentage of committing another crime.

When Luis Gutierrez was given the floor to speak, it was apparent by his demeanor that he was not happy. Just the tone of his voice made my skin crawl. As he started ranting and raving about previous statements he had made and then took great effort to spit Jessica Vaughn’s name out of his mouth, all the while raising his voice to a hate-filled scream, I, along with Sabine Darden, Laura Wilkerson and Maria Espinoza, left the hearing room. Not only was I disgusted with his behavior and lack of empathy for the real reason this hearing was taking place, but I was shocked at his demeanor and screaming voice. Sabine, Laura and myself have all lost a child at the hands of an illegal criminal and to see this so called Representative of the people of Illinois speak with such hate and disregard for the victims families in the room was unacceptable. I can’t imagine what Jim Steinle was thinking. Video doesn’t lie Mr. Gutierrez. If he was embarrassed for being quoted while dismissing Kate Steinle’s death as a ‘little thing,’ then shame on him. This hearing was not the time or place to dig himself out of the hole his mouth put him in.

I am asking, as an American citizen who has lost my son Sgt. Brandon Mendoza at the hands of an illegal criminal, that Luis Gutierrez be stopped from being allowed to use precious hearing time as a way to air his displeasure and obvious hate for a witness at hearings he is unfortunately a part of. Especially when that witness is merely repeating words that have come out of his mouth.

This was my first trip to Washington, D.C. and the time spent in the hearing listening to Mr. Gutierrez has left me with a very bad taste in my mouth. I wonder if the people of Illinois who elected him to represent them really know what a rude, uncaring, egotistical jerk they have erroneously elected to be in Washington, D.C.

Man shoots down drone hovering over house

drone banned
July 30, 2015 by Chris Matyszczyk

We need to talk anti-aircraft weaponry.

More and more so-called enthusiasts are sending drones into the sky. This means that more and more normal humans are becoming enthusiastic about shooting them out of the sky.

Especially, as in the case of William H. Merideth, the drone is hovering over your house.

Merideth, 47, lives in Hillview, Kentucky. As WDRB-TV reports, a neighbor heard gunshots and called the police. Merideth allegedly told the police that a drone was hovering over his house, where his teen daughter (he has two) was sunbathing. So he pulled out his gun and gave it a merry death.

The drone’s owner, police say, said he was flying it to take pictures of a neighboring house.

However, Merideth told WRDB: “Well, I came out and it was down by the neighbor’s house, about 10 feet off the ground, looking under their canopy that they’ve got under their back yard. I went and got my shotgun and I said, ‘I’m not going to do anything unless it’s directly over my property.'”

And then it allegedly was.

WDRB 41 Louisville News

Merideth explained: “I didn’t shoot across the road, I didn’t shoot across my neighbor’s fences, I shot directly into the air.”

He says that shortly after the shooting, he received a visit from four men who claimed to be responsible for the drone and explaining that it cost $1,800.

Merideth says he stood his ground: “I had my 40 mm Glock on me and they started toward me and I told them, ‘If you cross my sidewalk, there’s gonna be another shooting.'”

There appears not to have been another shooting. However, Merideth was arrested for wanton endangerment and criminal mischief. There is, apparently, a local ordinance that says you can’t shoot a gun off in the city, but the police charged him under a Kentucky Revised Statute.

I have contacted both the Hillview Police Department and the FAA to ask for their view on proceedings. I will update, should I hear.

The FAA’s recommendations include not flying above 400 feet and “Don’t fly near people or stadiums.” The FAA adds: “You could be fined for endangering people or other aircraft.”

For his part, Merideth says he will sue the drone’s owners. He told WRDB: “You know, when you’re in your own property, within a six-foot privacy fence, you have the expectation of privacy. We don’t know if he was looking at the girls. We don’t know if he was looking for something to steal. To me, it was the same as trespassing.”

It is, indeed, hard to know whether things that buzz in the sky have positive or negative intentions. Amateur drones disrupted efforts to fight recent California wildfires to such a degree that there’s now a $75,000 reward for anyone who identifies those responsible. A Southern California lawmaker has created a bill that would make it legal for the authorities to shoot these drones out of the sky.

On the other hand, medical researchers are wondering if drones could be very useful in being able to quickly transport vital medical supplies.

It’s not hard to have some sympathy with Merideth, if not with his draconian methods of sanction.

This case echoes one from last year when a New Jersey man allegedly took a hovering drone out with a bullet.

But this sort of incident will only get more complicated as companies such as Amazon begin to fly drones that deliver underwear and nail clippers.

Drones aren’t supposed to fly over buildings. Surely Amazon’s flying machines won’t be able to avoid such an event.

Please imagine your neighborhood airspace suddenly full of undergarments, toys, books and other coveted items floating through the air after the drone carrying them was shot down.

Every day will feel like Christmas.

‘US Wants to Coerce Russia Into Submission’

Putin Spank Obama
July 30, 2015 by Ekaterina Blinova

In contrast with the Russian government which relies on diplomacy, Washington relies on coercion and it obviously intends to coerce Russia into submission, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts told Sputnik.

The cornerstone of America’s foreign and military policy is the Wolfowitz Doctrine which declares that Washington’s primary objective “is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either in the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere that poses a threat similar to that posed formerly by the Soviet Union,” Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, a prominent American economist, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and author, elaborated.

“By ‘threat’ the Wolfowitz Doctrine means a country sufficiently strong enough to have a foreign policy independent of Washington. ‘Threat’ does not mean a military threat or a plan to attack the US. It means any country capable of standing up to Washington. Today there are two such countries, Russia and China. While the Washington neoconservatives were absorbed in their decade-long wars in the Middle East, Vladimir Putin revived Russia from the Yeltsin debacle, and China rose much more rapidly than Washington expected,” Dr. Roberts told Sputnik.

Why Neocons Want Putin to Invade the Baltics

Russia’s diplomatic involvement into the US geopolitical game in the Middle East undermined neoconservatives’ plans and became the trigger for backlash from Washington.

“When Russia (possibly backed by China) forced diplomatic solutions on the Syrian and Iranian ‘crises’ that Washington had orchestrated as an excuse for military action [against these countries], the neoconservatives realized that Russia had acquired the power to limit American unilateralism,” Dr. Roberts pointed out.

Predictably, Washington struck back. Dr. Roberts pointed out that the next move of the US was to overthrow the government of Ukraine, hoping to grab the Russian Black Sea naval base, thus depriving Russia of access to the Mediterranean.

US Hawks, Neocons Reign Supreme in Washington – US Scholar

When Crimea voted on March 16, 2014 to reunite with Russia, Washington hastened to use false claims of “Russia’s invasion of Ukraine” to force its European “vassal states” to impose economic sanctions on Moscow in order to isolate it and to drive a wedge between Europe and Russia, cutting off their political and economic ties.

“The sanctions alleviate Washington’s concerns that Europe’s dependency on Russian energy will eventually cause Washington to lose control over Europe,” Dr. Roberts noted.

‘Tensions with Russia are Absolutely Required’

Furthermore, the Pentagon’s top officials have publicly labeled Russia as America’s “existential threat,” stressing that it is the only country on earth that retains the nuclear capability to destroy the United States. What is the root cause of Washington’s warmongering?

“Washington always needs an enemy in order to justify the $1 trillion annual budget of the military/security complex. When the Soviet Union collapsed, this budget was in jeopardy until the “Muslim threat” was created. The problem with the Muslim threat is that Muslims lack ICBMs, navies, air forces, and armies that can be portrayed as “existential threats” to the US,” Dr. Roberts told Sputnik.

While some experts suggest that America’s anti-Russia’s stance may be caused by emerging domestic problems and the prospect of new global financial crisis, Paul Craig Roberts explains that “the demonization of Russia and Russia’s president have nothing to do with the current or future state of the US economy.”

“It has to do with the Wolfowitz Doctrine,” the American author stressed.

So, what steps should be taken by the White House and the Kremlin in order to de-escalate the growing tension between the US and Russia?

“The Russian media keeps asking me this question: “What steps, in your opinion, should be taken by the US and the Russian government to de-escalate the tension?” This is a nonsensical question! Washington has no intention whatsoever of de-escalating the tension. From Washington’s standpoint, the tension is absolutely essential,” Dr. Roberts told Sputnik.

“The tension provides the excuse for the sanctions that break Europe from Russia, for the military buildup by the US and NATO on Russia’s borders, for making Ukraine and Georgia (and Armenia and Kyrgyzstan after the planned color revolutions or coups) NATO members. The tension makes the American public accept the enormous military/security complex budget that fuels America’s largest industry and provides political campaign contributions to House, Senate, and Presidential political campaigns,” the US economist highlighted.

Dr. Roberts pointed out that tensions with Russia are “absolutely required,” since the neoconservatives, the politicians, and the profits and power of the military/security complex desperately need this conflict.

While the Russian government is committed to diplomatic solutions, Washington considers diplomacy a sign of weakness.

“The Russian government relies on diplomacy, but Washington regards diplomacy as a sign of weakness. Washington relies on coercion. Washington intends to coerce Russia into submission. It is a mystery to me how the Russian government and Russian media can miss so obvious an intent,” the author underscored.

A Serious Temptation to the Chinese

Meanwhile, Russia is bolstering its economic and political ties with China prompting some analysts to consider BRICS and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) a viable alternative to the established institutions of the West.

However, that does not mean Washington will twiddle its thumbs just watching the emerging powers establish new geopolitical alliances.

“Washington is now apparently launching its plan to break up the Russian-Chinese alliance before it can solidify. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), a Washington-controlled institution, is courting China with bringing the Chinese currency into the IMF’s money, Special Drawing Rights, as a heavily weighted currency, second only to the US dollar,” Paul Craig Roberts elaborated.

A recent article published in the US business magazine Quartz argues that an uptick of nationalism in Siberia threatens to break up the Russian Federation.

US Media Dreams About ‘Siberian Nationalism’ Breaking Up Russia

“Washington’s message to China, via the IMF, is: ‘Come to us. Look how influential you will be. Why play with third world economies such as Russia, India, Brazil, and South Africa, when you can be a prince among the West, out ranking everyone but America itself. What do you need a BRICS bank for when you can be only one spot below the top in the IMF? Your economy is already integrated with America’s. Join us. Earn the approbation of the Ruling West. Ignore the losers. Come to the winners,” the American economist underscored.

And this is quite tempting to the Chinese, Dr. Roberts warned, given that they are currently besotted with capitalism and money-making.

“Of course, if Washington’s plan succeeds, after Russia is finished off, China will be next. Wisdom and awareness are rare in the world, and this rareness is a great benefit to Washington,” Dr. Paul Craig Roberts concluded.

EU’s Greek Austerity Plan Rejected By The IMF

July 30, 2105 by Paul Craig Roberts

I have maintained since the so-called Greek Debt “crisis” began back in 2010, I believe it was, that the imposition of austerity on Greece could not possibly work and that the only solution was to write down the debt to a level that Greece could service and introduce reforms that loosen the hold the oligarchs have on the Greek economy. The current Greek government has taken the same position, and now the IMF has joined us.

The IMF has said that debt relief measures, that is, write-downs, are necessary and that this necessary measure goes far beyond what the eurozone has offered so far. Asked if the plan could succeed without debt relief, the director of the IMF said, “categorically, no.”

This has been obvious from the beginning to any economist worthy of the name. The fact that it has taken five years to establish an elementary fact shows how rapacious are the rich. Moreover, it proves in my opinion that the “crisis” was never about debt. It was about using the debt as a weapon to establish that creditors are not responsible for their mistakes when they overlend, and to force the centralization of member states’ tax and spending policies in the EU.

The austerity plan does not address debt. It imposes a draconian fiscal policy on the Greek government.

Followers of this blog should not be surprised as to what Paul Craig Roberts says here. This blog shares Dr Roberts’ view.

PC Gone Too Far, College: Using the Word “American” is Offensive

University of New Hampshire:‘Obese’, ‘normal’, ‘mothering’, ‘fathering’, ‘senior citizens’, ‘homosexual’, ‘illegal alien’ also discouraged

Using the words “American,” “obese,” “normal,” “mothering,” “fathering,” “homosexual,” “illegal alien,” and “senior citizens,” is offensive and should be discouraged, according to a “Bias-Free Language Guide” posted on the University of New Hampshire website.

The guide, first uncovered by Campus Reform, “is meant to invite inclusive excellence in [the] campus community.”

The word “American” is “problematic” according to the guide because it “assumes the U.S. is the only country inside [the continents of North and South America].”

Calling people “illegal aliens” is also politically incorrect, with the preferred term for undocumented immigrants being “person seeking asylum,” or “refugee,” while the word “foreigner” is discouraged and replaced with “international people.”

More banned words and phrases include;

– “Caucasian (replaced with “European-American individuals”);

– “Mothering” and “fathering” (replaced with “parenting” and “nurturing” so as to “avoid gendering a non-gendered activity”);

– “Homosexual” (replaced with “gay,” “lesbian,” “same gender loving”);

– “Obese” or “overweight” (replaced with “people of size”);

– Saying a person is “poor” (replaced with “person who lacks advantages that others have”);

– Saying the word “healthy” because it’s offensive to disabled people, who can’t be called disabled, they must be called a “person who is wheelchair mobile”).

“Terms also considered problematic include: “elders,” “senior citizen,” “overweight” (which the guide says is “arbitrary”), “speech impediment,” “dumb,” “sexual preference,” “manpower,” “freshmen,” “mailman,” and “chairman,” in addition to many others,” writes Peter Hasson.

The guide also rails against “ciscentrism,” which “includes the lack of gender-neutral restrooms, locker rooms, and residences” at the university.

To his credit, the president of the University of New Hampshire Mark Huddleston responded to the story by asserting that the guide was not official campus policy.

“I am troubled by many things in the language guide, especially the suggestion that the use of the term ‘American’ is misplaced or offensive,” he said. “The only UNH policy on speech is that it is free and unfettered on our campuses. It is ironic that what was probably a well-meaning effort to be ‘sensitive’ proves offensive to many people, myself included.”

Meanwhile, Republican State Senator Jeb Bradley has vowed to take the guide into consideration next time lawmakers decide how much money to give to the university.

“Implying the word ‘American’ is not appropriate to use on campus is un-American to say the least,” he said. “Will UNH next propose to change our Live Free or Die motto to Live Free but Upset No-One?”

The University of New Hampshire is by no means the only educational institution that is attempting to encourage censorious codes of political correctness on campus that completely contradict the notion of universities being bastions of free speech.

Earlier this month we reported on how the University of Wisconsin (Stevens Point) was teaching faculty members that all manner of harmless behaviors and phrases were examples of “racial microaggressions.”

The examples included; Asking someone where they are from or where they were born, telling someone they speak good English, telling someone that you have several black friends, saying that you’re not a racist, and complimenting an Asian person by telling them they are very articulate.
