HHS Secretary and former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius swore an oath to protect and uphold the Constitution. Since then, it’s apparently been out of sight, out of mind.
OK, let’s try this. How dumb does Obama think the American people are?
EPA official Al Armendariz who rocketed to infamy last week because of 2010 comments about “crucifying” industry, resigned from the agency.
LOL, when does the EPA resign from America?
Isn’t this what progressives want? Did Justice Ginsburg say this was the goal of abortion all along? Where you been hiding? The NAZIs only mistake is they did it in the open, not behind doctor’s closed doors.
What about the morality of it all?
Forced sterilizations to stop climate change are already a reality in India
And you doubted that misanthropy is the prime motivation of Greenies? Indians are good people who suffered much under Muslim rule then under socialist rule and now this. This is especially grievous to me as I know Indians well and think highly of them. I have been to India three times and there are always brown faces in my house
Tens of millions of pounds of UK aid money have been spent on a programme that has forcibly sterilised Indian women and men, the Observer has learned. Many have died as a result of botched operations, while others have been left bleeding and in agony. A number of pregnant women selected for sterilisation suffered miscarriages and lost their babies.
The UK agreed to give India £166m to fund the programme, despite allegations that the money would be used to sterilise the poor in an attempt to curb the country’s burgeoning population of 1.2 billion people.
Sterilisation has been mired in controversy for years. With officials and doctors paid a bonus for every operation, poor and little-educated men and women in rural areas are routinely rounded up and sterilised without having a chance to object. Activists say some are told they are going to health camps for operations that will improve their general wellbeing and only discover the truth after going under the knife.
Court documents filed in India earlier this month claim that many victims have been left in pain, with little or no aftercare. Across the country, there have been numerous reports of deaths and of pregnant women suffering miscarriages after being selected for sterilisation without being warned that they would lose their unborn babies.
Yet a working paper published by the UK’s Department for International Development in 2010 cited the need to fight climate change as one of the key reasons for pressing ahead with such programmes. The document argued that reducing population numbers would cut greenhouse gases, although it warned that there were “complex human rights and ethical issues” involved in forced population control.
The latest allegations centre on the states of Madhya Pradesh and Bihar, both targeted by the UK government for aid after a review of funding last year. In February, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh had to publicly warn off his officials after widespread reports of forced sterilisation. A few days later, 35-year-old Rekha Wasnik bled to death in the state after doctors sterilised her. The wife of a poor labourer, she was pregnant with twins at the time. She began bleeding on the operating table and a postmortem cited the operation as the cause of death.
Earlier this month, India’s supreme court heard how a surgeon operating in a school building in the Araria district of Bihar in January carried out 53 operations in two hours, assisted by unqualified staff, with no access to running water or equipment to clean the operating equipment. A video shot by activists shows filthy conditions and women lying on the straw-covered ground.
Human rights campaigner Devika Biswas told the court that “inhuman sterilisations, particularly in rural areas, continue with reckless disregard for the lives of poor women”. Biswas said 53 poor and low-caste women were rounded up and sterilised in operations carried out by torchlight that left three bleeding profusely and led to one woman who was three months pregnant miscarrying. “After the surgeries, all 53 women were crying out in pain. Though they were in desperate need of medical care, no one came to assist them,” she said.
The court gave the national and state governments two months to respond to the allegations.
Activists say that it is India’s poor – and particularly tribal people – who are most frequently targeted and who are most vulnerable to pressure to be sterilised. They claim that people have been threatened with losing their ration cards if they do not undergo operations, or bribed with as little as 600 rupees (£7.34) and a sari. Some states run lotteries in which people can win cars and fridges if they agree to be sterilised.
Obama names names … Didn’t Nixon do that? And didn’t the press go nuts. What’s up with the press now.
Does Barack Obama have an enemies list?
On Thursday, Kimberley Strassel wrote at the Wall Street Journal that yes, he does, and it appears to include anyone who contributes to Mitt Romney, the presumptive GOP nominee.
Guess we just got dump the guy.
After conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh’s remarks about Georgetown Law School student and contraception activist Sandra Fluke made him a political lightning rod, it was the liberal Media Matters for America that pressured his advertisers in a bid to force his program off the airwaves. Now Limbaugh is taking the fight back to Media Matters.
A new section of Limbaugh’s website, mediamatters.rushlimbaugh.com, is now devoted to combating the activist group.
“Media Matters is a left-wing political operation created to censor conservative media through blacklisting and intimidation of advertisers,” reads the headline at the top the page.
Limbaugh had already launched Twitter accounts and added their reach to his existing radio audience in an effort to return fire against left-wing groups — particularly Media Matters — that targeted his advertisers and affiliates. Some industry observers concluded that the controversy caused only minimal damage to the talk radio king.
Brian Glicklich, a spokesman for Limbaugh, told The Daily Caller that the project was designed to be a central source of information for listeners who want to know what Media Matters is all about.
“The purpose of this page is to act as a point of reference for people looking for the facts about Media Matters — which is, of course, very different than the way they describe themselves,” Glicklich said. “It will be updated frequently.”
We’re with you Rush.
First off, man made global warming isn’t a myth, it’s a lie. Fabricated by liberals to extract taxes from the less informed.
We want proof … Shouldn’t be too hard to do, you don’t even need a dopey scissors ladder to do. And leave the polar bears they add little. Besides they are busy frolicking on the ice in the Arctic.
The problem is so far all you have been able to spin is tales about the earth’s non-existent CO2 blanket around the equator and other such lies. And you thought that would work? Sorry boy, but the warm CO2 blanket is nowhere to be found. Was that too obvious? Did you think weather balloons wouldn’t find you out? So what is the truth Al, lay out the facts and stop the driveling.
OK, you got me on that one, it’s not a myth, it’s a lie. So now it’s talk radio that’s the problem? Should be too hard to fix. Just lay the truth out, they will shut up. Where is it Al, you lost the truth? Don’t tell me. It even worked with the little boy and the dike, so talk to me, Al.
OK, that means exactly nothing. Must have proof you know. As an esteemed scientisdt, you must know the difference betew truth and lies, don’t you?
Gore was the keynote speaker at the inauguration of Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash Friday. The theme of Lash’s inauguration was “Educating for Change: critical thinking in a critical time.”
Didn’t it used to be educating for truth? Not the dopey “change sloganeering” again. Ain’t buying this time. Sell it to Obama’s dog, he likes change, yummy.
“Now there are some talk radio show hosts, they say that (global warming is) not (real),” Gore said. “It’s up to you; my point is we must respond. What the scientists tell us is going to take place if we do not is too awful to contemplate.”
So the truth ought to not be too hard to find, after-all, 97% is a big number, do they have the proof? Show us the proof.
And then he spoke in a small tent to the faithful, yada yada yada, but failed to produce any proof ah anything. Sigh, typical Al.
More Tom Foolery From The Donks … How can we fool(lie) to voters and still win the election.
Getting harder out there, now that the lamestream doesn’t control the play anymore. Read and see how the party of the KKK slithers the election.
Democrats looking to replace retiring Sen. Olympia Snowe (R) in Maine have a delicate decision to make.
If they back independent former Gov. Angus King, who stands the best chance at winning, they risk the appearance of having abandoned their own party’s candidates.
But if they support one of the four Democrats competing in the primary, they risk siphoning votes away from King and handing the seat back to Republicans.
Looming over the race is the lingering question about which party King will caucus with if elected to the Senate. King has steadfastly refused to say with which party he’ll cast his lot, a silence that some of his opponents claim deprives voters of the information they need to cast an informed ballot.
But both Democrats and Republicans seem to agree that when push comes to shove, King is likely to side with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
“It’s simply insulting to voters in Maine and to the candidates running for the Democratic nomination that King is playing this dishonest, cat-and-mouse game,” said NRSC spokesman Brian Walsh.
And here I bet you thought Abe Linclon was the founder of the KKK, if you listen to the Democrats tell it. If the Democrats didn’t lie, they would likely not win another election. Look what they did for Commie Obama.
