Planned Parenthood Video 5: Who’s up for selling ‘intact cadavers’?- Aug 4, 2015
I seriously hope you’re not losing your capacity to be shocked or outraged by what’s going on in these Planned Parenthood videos. I understand some might find it frustrating that the Center for Medical Progress is drip-dripping the information in a series of 12 videos. But I can also see the strategy behind that: Every time Planned Parenthood and its defenders insist this or that is doctored, fraudulent, impossible, etc., out comes another video proving the opposite.
Radiation Hormesis Gets Another Look- Aug 4, 2015
In late June the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) announced that three petitioners, a radiation-health organization, a health physicist, and a professor of radiation oncology at the University of California, Los Angeles, asked that it amend its radiation protection standards to change the basis of those regulations from the linear-no-threshold (LNT) model to the hormesis model. The NRC explained, “The radiation hormesis model provides that exposure of the human body to low levels of ionizing radiation is beneficial and protects the human body against deleterious effects of high levels of radiation.” (1)
Shale Gas Is Big Loser In Obama’s Latest Climate Plan- Aug 4, 2015
US shale gas is the unexpected loser from President Barack Obama’s climate plan, as the White House abandons its previous enthusiasm for natural gas as a cleaner alternative to coal. Last year Mr Obama called natural gas from fracking a “bridge fuel” to smooth the transition from polluting coal to emission-free renewable energy. But the shale industry was left reeling by a sudden reversal on Monday. In its landmark plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, the Obama administration eliminated an earlier projection that natural gas would contribute much more electricity, and instead upped the role of renewables.—Barney Jopson, Financial Times[Subscription Required], 3 August 2015
After calling for investigations - Hillary releases video defending Planned Parenthood- Aug 4, 2015
As you know, Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood have a long, mutually idolatrous relationship. Sanger is one of Clinton’s heroes, and Clinton is often lauded by the baby-crushing organization Sanger founded. So, when Hillary Clinton labelled the Planned Parenthood undercover videos “disturbing” and called for investigations into not just PP but the entire abortion industry, I was surprised. Democrats simply do not target their favorite baby-parts supply company.
Campaign weirdness: Ted Cruz makes ‘Machine Gun Bacon’- Aug 4, 2015
I confess. I don’t quite “get” what Ted Cruz is doing lately. I understand that we’re still in the early phases of the campaign season, I’m aware that the issue-driven stuff hasn’t really heated up yet, and I’ll concede that summer months have a tendency to spawn campaign “oddities.” However, I’d like to see something a bit more substantive than the following video he made for IjReview.
Filibuster kills Planned Parenthood de-funding bill, but here’s a question- Aug 4, 2015
You’ve heard by now that Democrats held together in a filibuster against the Senate bill that would have defunded Planned Parenthood. Only two Democrats - Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of Indiana - voted for cloture. Only two Republicans voted against it, and Illinois’s Mark Kirk was the only one who was really in opposition. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, as much as we are not a fan of his, did so only for procedural purposes so he would have the right to bring it up again in the future.
Why the Defund Planned Parenthood Vote Matters- Aug 4, 2015
Serious questions have been raised as to whether Planned Parenthood is selling tissue and body parts of unborn babies for profit. So serious that Congress is planning to hold investigations this fall.
Castro: Now Censoring Cubans in Washington DC’s Department of State- Aug 4, 2015
After 54 years of no diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States, on July 20 at 10:.30 am the Cuban Embassy in Washington D.C. opened its doors.
African opulence? Nkandla’s quite modest- Aug 4, 2015
Unpopular as it may be to say it, one day we might know that our president really did have no idea how high the costs were going to be when Nkandla was completed. It is even possible that he never intended it to be quite so splendid, but that might be more difficult to believe.
Nigeria: Military Arrests Boko Haram Commander, Rescues 178 People- Aug 4, 2015
The Nigerian military announced on Sunday that it has arrested a Boko Haram commander.
The Turkish Attacks in Syria: An About-Face by Ankara?- Aug 4, 2015
The strikes by the Turkish air force in Syria, which began on July 24, 2015, along with Turkey’s intention to establish a safe zone in northwestern Syria, inspired the headline “Turkey Joins the Coalition against the Islamic State,” even though Turkey has already been a member of this coalition since it was founded in 2014.
Boko Haram: Cameroonian authorities shut mosques, Islamic centres- Aug 4, 2015
Cameroonian authorities have ordered all mosques and Islamic centres to be shut in northern parts of the country.
Donald Trump: The new Rob Ford- Aug 4, 2015
Ever since Donald Trump began surging in polls in the race for the Republican nominee for president, the Toronto media has compared his rise to that of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford. The comparison is allowing the Ford haters, of which are many in the media, to say that Trump’s appeal is the same as Ford’s. While some of them “get it,” many have no idea what attracts ordinary people to Ford and Trump and using Trump as an excuse to take another shot at Ford who is no longer mayor.
For example, Boom 97.3 which is apparently a Toronto FM radio station, posted a picture saying, “Dear U.S.A., We feel your pain Sincerely, Toronto.” as if they speak for the entire city that gave Ford an overwhelming victory in the 2010 mayor’s race. Juvenile. They probably couldn’t care less about Trump: just using him as an excuse to bash the former mayor once again.
We Are No Longer A Democracy- Aug 4, 2015
Recently, in an interview with Thom Hartmann, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said regarding 2010 Citizens United decision and the 2014 McCutcheon decision, “It violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or being elected president.” Huffington Post goes on to explain that the decisions were rendered by “five Republican judges on the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Planned Parenthood, unequal justice and dark forces- Aug 4, 2015
As an investigator and in particular, when I was working as an operational asset for the FBI in the 1990s, I was particularly good at securing covert video like that captured by the Center for Medical Progress of Planned Parenthood. In fact, I was used because I could convincingly present myself to the subjects of investigation as someone I was not, and secure the needed evidence that served as the basis for immediate raids, arrests and sometimes later, as courtroom exhibits for a jury to see.
It was common for the audio and video to be remotely monitored in real time by a team of law enforcement officers, including the FBI, in a vehicle usually parked around the corner from where I stood. In those cases, once the necessary evidence was memorialized, I had to mentally brace myself, for I knew what was about to happen.
