NY Times Caught LYING about Jared Loughner

Leftwing pothead: Jared Loughner

From the word Go, the Left has been trying to shape a thoroughly dishonest and indefensible narrative on the Tucson, AZ shootings, with one goal in mind: pin it on the Right.  So far I haven’t seen anything that rises above mere opinion piece and editorializing (all of them pathetic distortion), none of which I take very seriously.  But this one crosses the line, and it’s all the more egregious because it comes from The New York Times (the Left’s “paper of record”).  This isn’t mere opinion, simple bias, or honest mistake.  This LIE was reported as FACT, and they did it KNOWINGLY.  Here they are trying to link this clearly insane anti-war, Satan-worshipping, Leftwing pothead to Sarah Palin and the conservative pro-Life movement.

First, how ABC News reported the story based on testimony from Jared Loughner’s classmates:

“‘One day (Loughner) started making comments about terrorism and laughing about killing the baby,’ classmate Don Coorough told ABC News, referring to a discussion about abortions. ‘The rest of us were looking at him in shock … I thought this young man was troubled.’

“Another classmate, Lydian Ali, recalled the incident as well.

“‘A girl had written a poem about an abortion. It was very emotional and she was teary eyed and he said something about strapping a bomb to the fetus and making a baby bomber,’ Ali said.”

And now the NY Times inversion:

“After another student read a poem about getting an abortion, Mr. Loughner compared the young woman to a ‘terrorist for killing the baby.'”

MLK’s Niece at Beck’s Rally

Conservatism sweeps the Nation’s capital as Alveda King speaks at Beck’s rally about race, abortion, faith in the public square, the culture war.  Liberals predictably won’t touch her with a ten foot pole and instead attack the far safer targets Beck and Palin.

“MLK would encourage us to lay aside the divisive lies that cause us to think we are members of separate races.”

“Alleluyah.  We still trust in God.”

Ann Rice Quits Christianity

A few years ago, Anne Rice of the Interview with a Vampire novels, says she converted to Christianity.  It seems, however, she couldn’t let go of her real religion– PC.  Andrew Klavan responds to her public show of apostasy:

Spanking porn author Anne Rice has announced on Facebook that she’s quitting Christianity.  According to John Nolte over at Big Hollywood, she made the announcement on Facebook thusly:

I quit being a Christian. I’m out. In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life. In the name of Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen.

What I found really interesting about this is that I feel exactly the opposite.  One of the main reasons I go to church is to remind myself, after the political battles of the week, that the people I so ferociously oppose are still part of the body of God.  It’s difficult, in the hurly-burly of intense disagreement, to follow the injunction to “judge not,” but I think joining in prayer with your fellow Christians even those who might be – gasp! – Democrats is a helpful reminder.  None of us has a monopoly on wisdom, virtue or justice.

Perhaps, as Nolte puckishly remarks, “Rice has ‘elevated’ herself from a Christian to a narcissist.”

A Crime to fit the Times: Infanticide

As if plummeting fertility rates across the West wasn’t enough, now you can add an epidemic of infanticide to the mix.  Barack Obama said he did not want his daughter “punished with a baby.”  His choice of words was revealing.  Parenthood simply does not mesh well with our highly individualistic, career-driven society.  I know these are sick women, but I do believe you can read a society by the nature of its pathologies.

Why Are French Women Killing Their Babies?

The question is as horrifying as it is important to ask: Why are a rising number of French women killing their newborn babies? Finding the answer has become a matter of urgency following the discovery on Wednesday of eight infants allegedly smothered to death and buried by their mother in northern France. And with that case marking at least the fifth instance of multiple infanticide reported in France since 2003, it has become vital for the nation to confront the phenomenon that appears to be behind it all: a mental condition known as pregnancy denial.

This latest case of newborn murder in France was uncovered in the northern town of Villiers-au-Tertre, after eight tiny bodies were found buried in the gardens of two separate homes. Six of the cadavers were unearthed on July 29 by police at the house of Dominique Cottrez, 45, and her husband Pierre-Marie, 47. Investigators searched their home after the resident of a house previously owned by Dominique’s parents turned up two tiny bodies on July 24 while digging a pool in the backyard. According to the French prosecutor leading the inquiry in the town, a short distance south of Lille, Dominique has admitted to hiding her pregnancies — and the killings of her babies — from her husband, whom police describe as being “dumbstruck” by the revelations. Dominique was charged for the murders; Pierre-Marie has been cleared of wrongdoing and released but could yet become a subject of investigation.

The case in Villiers-au-Tertre is only the most recent example of a father of slain babies being apparently unaware of his wife’s pregnancies. Four other such cases since 2003 include that of Véronique Courjault, 42, who was convicted in June 2009 of killing three of her newborns — two of whom she hid in a freezer and were later discovered by her husband. And this past March, Céline Lesage, 38, was found guilty of murdering six of her babies after she hid her pregnancies from the men who had fathered them. Both women were sentenced to prison — Courjault for eight years and Lesage for 15.

Experts explained those cases as resulting from pregnancy denial, an often misunderstood and minimized condition. According to Michel Delcroix, a former gynecologist who served as a court expert in the Courjault trial and others involving pregnancy issues, pregnancy denial is a quasi-schizophrenic condition in which women either don’t realize or cannot accept that they are with child — not even enough to have an abortion. Whether these women are afflicted with the condition before they deliver or as they’re suddenly giving birth, Delcroix explains, the psychological denial is so strong that they refuse to believe they’re pregnant even when the reality confronts them.

Obama Taking a Grilling From all sides now

Here both sides beat President Obama like a red-headed stepchild on a number of issues.  But the truth is I’m actually just posting this because Ann Coulter is so fine when she dominates a room full of Libs.  I generally prefer brunettes, but in this one she’s particularly fresh-faced and wholesome looking as she gins up ratings for Joy Behar’s flagging numbers.

Post script: Ann Coulter was telling the truth about federal funding for abortions, Donna Brazile was not.

Broken Promises: Obama Administration OKs First Tax-Funded Abortions Under Health Care Law

Washington, DC ( — The Obama administration has officially approved the first instance of taxpayer funded abortions under the new national government-run health care program. This is the kind of abortion funding the pro-life movement warned about when Congress considered the bill.

The Obama Administration will give Pennsylvania $160 million to set up a new “high-risk” insurance program under a provision of the federal health care legislation enacted in March.  It has quietly approved a plan submitted by an appointee of pro-abortion Governor Edward Rendell under which the new program will cover any abortion that is legal in Pennsylvania.

“The Obama Administration will give Pennsylvania $160 million in federal tax funds, which we’ve discovered will pay for insurance plans that cover any legal abortion,” said Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee.Johnson told “This is just the first proof of the phoniness of President Obama’s assurances that federal funds would not subsidize abortion — but it will not be the last.”

“President Obama successfully opposed including language in the bill to prevent federal subsidies for abortions, and now the Administration is quietly advancing its abortion-expanding agenda through administrative decisions such as this, which they hope will escape broad public attention,” Johnson said.

The abortion funding comes despite language in the bill that some pro-abortion Democrats and Obama himself claimed would prevent abortion funding and despite a controversial executive order Obama signed supposedly stopping abortion funding.

The pro-life community strongly opposed the executive order and said Rep. Bart Stupak and other House Democrats who voted for the pro-abortion health care bill in exchange for it were selling out their pro-life principles. This first case of forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions under the new law appears to prove them right that the bill language and executive order were ineffective.

The proposal specifies coverage “includes only abortions and contraceptives that satisfy the requirements of” several specific statutes, the most pertinent of which is 18 Pa. C.S. § 3204, which says abortion is legal in Pennsylvania. The statute essentially says all abortions except those to determine the sex of the baby are legal.”Under the Rendell-Sebelius plan, federal funds will subsidize coverage of abortion performed for any reason, except sex selection,” said NRLC’s Johnson. “The Pennsylvania proposal conspicuously lacks language that would prevent funding of abortions performed as a method of birth control or for any other reason, except sex selection — and the Obama Administration has now approved this.”
