Muslim Community Patrol ‘looks like Sharia police’ says former NYPD officer

A former NYPD officer and current host on NewsMaxTV says members of a new Muslim Community Patrol look more like “Sharia police” than civic-minded people concerned about the safety of their neighborhoods.

“Not at all comfortable with this. ‘Muslim Community Patrol’ in NYC, driving cars that look identical to NYPD RMPs. This looks a lot like Sharia Police. In Brooklyn,” former New York City officer John Cardillo tweeted along with a picture of a uniformed MCP member standing in front of one of the group’s two vehicles.

Sick: Aborted Baby Parts Fused Into Mice For ‘Frankenstein’ Experiments

Technocracy views human life on the same level as animals, so Technocrat scientists see no ethical dilemma in using aborted baby parts in medical experiments with animals. Planned Parenthood remains in the middle of this controversy. ⁃ TN Editor

Aborted babies are being used in macabre experiments in the US that involve grafting dead fetus parts onto mice which are then used to test drugs.

Documents seen by Sun Online outline procedures that involve cutting out glands and livers of unborn children and then fusing them onto lab rodents.

The use of aborted baby body parts and stems cells has sparked anger among anti-abortion groups in the United States and it has been dubbed “Frankenstein” science.

And shocking undercover footage has led to the Donald Trump administration to reassess if the practice should be continued at all.
Clinics are supposed to ask if they would like to donate tissue but it is unclear whether the parents are aware their dead children’s bodies are being used in this way.

But what is known is that abortion clinics are supplying the fetal body parts, although they are not allowed to sell them.

Netflix Paid Zero in Taxes on Record $845M Profits in 2018

Netflix apparently did not pay a penny in federal or state income taxes despite posting profits exceeding $845 million, according to a review of their tax filings.

The online entertainment service reported a profit of more than $845 million in 2018, but also reported a $22 million federal tax rebate, according to the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), the Daily Mail wrote.

ITEP noted that Netflix is still “exploiting loopholes” in the tax code that helped it gear up to become one of the nation’s leading entertainment companies.

The group also said that the streaming service reported paid $131 million in taxes in 2018, but most of that was paid to foreign governments.

The world's primary feudal landowner is Queen Elizabeth II. She is Queen of 32 countries, head of a Commonwealth of 54 countries in which a quarter of the world's population lives, and legal owner of about 6.6 billion acres of land, one-sixth of the earth's land surface. The Queen owns all land in the UK.

Remember This?

GOP LEGALLY BARRED FROM FIGHTING VOTER FRAUD

Voting machines suspiciously defaulting to Barack Obama? Buses loaded with strangers appearing at polling stations? Even ballots turning out 100 percent for one candidate in precinct reports?

In short, suspicions of vote fraud?

That’s too bad, because a race-based consent decree negotiated by Democrats against the Republican National Committee a generation ago still has tied the RNC’s hands, and GOP officials could be cited for contempt – or worse – if they try to make sure American elections are clean.

Impossible?

No. Fact.

The case is the Democratic National Committee vs. the Republican National Committee, originally from 1982.

Democrats alleged Republicans were trying intimidate minority voters in New Jersey and brought the legal action. The RNC, inexplicably, decided to agree to a consent decree before a Democrat-appointed judge rather than fight the claims.

The judge, Dickinson Debevoise, appointed by Jimmy Carter, later retired but decided he would continue to control the case. The decision requires the RNC – but not the DNC – to “refrain from undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial or ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision to conduct, or the actual conduct of, such activities there and where a purpose or significant effect of such activities is to deter qualified voters from voting; and the conduct of such activities disproportionately in or directed toward districts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations shall be considered relevant evidence of the existence of such a factor and purpose.”

The rest of the agreement essentially requires the RNC to follow applicable state and federal election laws.

But the section cited above has been used for decades to warn off Republicans from any challenge to evidence of voter fraud in districts with “racial or ethnic populations.”

The law has remained, even though the RNC recently challenged it at the appellate level only to be turned down by Judges Joseph Greenaway Jr., appointed by Bill Clinton; Dolores Sloviter, appointed by Carter; and Walter Stapleton, appointed by Ronald Reagan, in the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

It now is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

But two election veterans both told WND it still is hurting the fight against voter fraud in the United States.

MOAR …

MIC DROP: Johns Hopkins completely shuts down students demanding it cut ties with ICE

Students at Johns Hopkins University walked out of class on Wednesday in protest against the university, calling on the administration to cut contract ties with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Students walked out in protest with signs and chants, demanding the university end its contracts distancing itself from ICE programs. One student who spoke with WJZ-TV in Baltimore said that the university failed to adhere to the “core values of the university.”
“We believe that these programs serve the public interest by providing quality education…"

Approximately 150 students and faculty walked out with the “Hopkins Coalition Against Ice,” according to the Baltimore Sun. The protest marks the fourth time protesters have organized against the university's partnership with ICE.

Pastor Holds Worship Service “At the Gates of Hell” Right in Front of Planned Parenthood

Pastor Ken Peters, of Spokane, has a mission to take down Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, by having church services across from one of its abortion facilities. As the current pastor of Covenant Church in Spokane, he said he heard God speaking to him during a service, calling him to open a church campus in front of Planned Parenthood.

On the website for The Church at Planned Parenthood, the site clarifies that it is not a protest: “It’s a worship service at the gates of Hell. The Church at Planned Parenthood is a gathering of Christians for the worship of God and the corporate prayer for repentance for this nation, repentance for the apathetic church and repentance of our blood guiltiness in this abortion holocaust.”

Hillary Attacks President Trump: “There’s No National Emergency at Our Border” (VIDEO)

Hillary Clinton attacked President Trump’s immigration policies in an interview with Showtime’s “The Circus” which aired on Friday.

The interviewer treated Hillary Clinton like she was the president of the United States and asked her, “If you were calling a national emergency on any topic, what would it be? Where should we be most focused right now?”

Crooked Hillary responded by saying, “I just don’t think you should call national emergencies unless there truly is a national emergency. There’s no national emergency at our border.”

Hillary added that President Trump is “frustrated” because he can’t get his border wall legislation passed through Congress.

Both Democrats and Republicans have called for increased border security over the years to put a stop to illegal immigration but now that Donald Trump is president, they are working overtime to block his border wall legislation.

Of course there is a crisis at the US-Mexico border. Tens of thousands of migrants from Central America comprised mainly of military-aged males have traveled through Mexico to the United States seeking asylum.

Convicted child rapists, dangerous MS-13 gang members and Islamic terrorists are among the illegal aliens caught by US border patrol agents.

Hillary Clinton and the Dems want open borders because they desperately need the illegal alien voting bloc.

After Trump’s Demand, South Korea Signs Deal to Pay More for US Troops

South Korea will pay $60 million more for the upkeep of U.S. troops on its territory—this after President Donald Trump demanded that Seoul boost its contribution. The two nations inked a short-term deal on Feb. 10 increasing South Korea’s annual bill by 6.75 percent to $890 million. On the campaign trail, Trump promised American voters he would fight to secure fair deals for the United States on the world stage. America’s NATO allies have boosted military spending by $100 billion after similar demands from Trump.

The South Korean Parliament has to approve the agreement before it becomes final. Unlike prior deals, which have lasted five years, the one signed on Feb. 10 expires in one year. Bargaining for 2020 funding is likely to restart in months. “It has been a very long process, but ultimately a very successful process,” South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said at a meeting before another official from the foreign ministry signed the agreement.

The U.S. State Department’s senior adviser for security negotiations and agreements, Timothy Betts, met Kang before signing the agreement on behalf of the United States and told her the money represented a small but important part of South Korea’s support for the alliance. “The United States government realizes that South Korea does a lot for our alliance and for peace and stability in this region,” he said.

About 70 percent of South Korea’s payment funds the salaries of some 8,700 South Korean workers who provide administrative, technical, and other services for the U.S. military. Late last year, the U.S. military had warned the South Korean employees on its bases that they may be put on leave from mid-April if no agreement was reached. Seoul and Washington have held 10 rounds of talks since March, amid Trump’s calls for South Korea to pay more. South Korean officials pushed for a three-year deal keeping their annual contribution around $864 million. U.S. officials demanded as much as $1.2 billion per year. The allies worked to finalize an agreement in order to minimize the impact on South Koreans working on U.S. military bases, and focus on nuclear talks ahead of a second U.S.-North Korea summit, Seoul officials said. On Feb. 10, South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said that the United States had affirmed it would not be changing the scale of its troop presence.

During his annual State of the Union Address on Feb. 5, Trump announced that he will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a second time on Feb. 27-28 in Vietnam. The two leaders held their first unprecedented meeting in June last year in Singapore. The Singapore summit resulted in a joint agreement in which Kim committed to denuclearize his nation, pursue peace with South Korea, establish relations with the United States, and repatriate the remains of American soldiers. After the meeting, Trump suspended major joint military exercises with South Korea. Since the summit, Pyongyang has not tested any nuclear weapons or ballistic missiles. South Korean President Moon Jae-in plans to discuss the upcoming summit with Trump soon, according to a spokesman from the Blue House. The spokesman, Kim Eui-kyeom, also confirmed that officials from Pyongyang and Washington plan to meet next week in an unspecified Asian country.

Schiff vows to continue investigation into Trump finances, Russia links

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff vowed on Sunday to continue the investigation into President Trump's finances and foreign connections for as long as it takes.

Speaking during an interview on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” the California Democrat said he found it “remarkable” that Trump was seeking a business deal with Russia and that he wanted to make sure that the president was “working in the national interest.”
“We are looking to see if the president is working in the national interest,” Schiff said. “That he is not motivated by some pecuniary interest or fear of compromise or actual compromise.”

Schiff last week hired former National Security Council staffers to work for him as he launches a sweeping new investigation into Trump – a move that appears to have drawn particular ire from the president.

Trump tweeted Thursday that Schiff and Democrats were going "nuts" with investigations and wrote, without elaborating, that they were "even stealing people from the White House!"
It's unclear exactly who Trump was talking about, but the tweet comes as Schiff appears to have hired at least one staff member who served on the National Security Council under Trump. The staff member, Abigail Grace, is listed in a House directory as working for Schiff on the intelligence panel. A person familiar with the committee's staff confirms that she is working for the panel and used to work for the NSC.

Grace worked for a bipartisan think tank, Center for a New American Security, after working for both former President Barack Obama and Trump on the National Security Council from 2016 to 2018. She focused on Asia-Pacific security issues, according to a spokesman for the group.
Schiff wouldn't confirm the hires in an interview Thursday, but hinted at them while snapping back at Trump.

"We have a long tradition of hiring out of the intelligence community, out of the National Security Council, and if the president is worried about our hiring any former administration people maybe he should work on being a better employer," Schiff said.

A committee aide said that none of Schiff's staff have come directly from the White House, but said the panel has hired people with prior experience on the National Security Council staff.

"We do not discriminate against potential hires on the basis of their prior work experience, including the administration," the aide said. The person also declined to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly about confidential committee business.

Why is Guantánamo seeking a wheelchair-accessible three-cell compound? Contingencies.

The Guantánamo Bay prison is shopping for a new three-cell, handicapped accessible compound — complete with a 115-foot dog run and guard house that can tap into the Pentagon’s secret internet network. Why?

“We must prepare for multiple contingencies, and modular buildings can be adapted and configured to provide us the flexibility needed to adapt to numerous circumstances,” prison spokesman Navy Cmdr. Adam Bashaw said Friday. He declined to answer specifically whether the proposed new compound was meant for the war court; the prison’s most clandestine lock-up for former CIA prisoners, Camp 7; or for a site called Camp Echo where captives meet their lawyers.

Echo has what Pentagon officials describe as “legacy issues,” meaning they have in the past been wired with listening devices and cameras that, defense attorneys say, allows for eavesdropping that violates attorney-client confidentiality.

The prison posted the solicitation for the three 20-foot prefabricated cell units — each with an American Disabilities Act accessible shower plus TV, bunk and toilet, wall mounted desk and stool — on Wednesday with a short turnaround response date of Feb. 21.
In the same week, a Pentagon spokeswoman told McClatchy that the Trump administration still considers Guantánamo as a possible holding site for Islamic State prisoners detained by a U.S.-allied predominantly Kurdish militia in Syria. A State Department spokesman urged nations with citizens to take home and prosecute their nationals held as Foreign Terrorist Fighters by the Syrian Democratic Forces.. Four Republican senators who want some of the prisoners brought to Guantánamo say the SDF holds some 750 captives.

Willie Brown Throws Shade at Ex-Girlfriend Kamala Harris: Can’t Beat Trump

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown threw shade at his ex-girlfriend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and the other contenders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, writing Saturday that none of them can beat President Donald Trump.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote:

Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.



[T]he overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.

You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.
...

Let’s just hope Democrats can figure out that we need to go beyond the left and motivate voters across the board, just as midterm congressional campaigns did under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership.

Brown acknowledged last month that he had dated Harris and given her jobs that helped her early political career.

Harris is running on a slate of left-wing policies, including “Medicare for All” and the so-called “Green New Deal,” which she embraced last week even though it calls for radical socialist measures such as paying Americans who are “unwilling” to work.

She has also said she would be willing to “eliminate” private health insurance, a position supported by only 13% of Americans.

Yellow Vest act XIII sees militarized police blow off another protesters hand

The right hand of one of the Yellow Vest protesters has been blown off by a police grenade, according to an eyewitness, during Saturday's demonstrations in Paris.

RT video agency Ruptly's footage from the scene shows clouds of smoke billowing around the street as protesters and police clash outside the grounds of the National Assembly.

Video captured in the moments surrounding the horrific hand injury show a marked escalation between police and protesters. One police grenade was filmed exploding as protesters approached the device.

Eyewitness Cyprien Royer told RT France that he and the injured man were near the National Assembly, where a group of people dressed in black were trying to smash their way in.

"That guy was just observing. The police arrived and started throwing grenades," Royer explained. "One grenade flew right under the guy's feet, and he tried to instinctively push it away with his hand, he hit it, and the grenade went off."

"He clutched onto us. We led him to the wall where there were no people. He was screaming, screaming, he was in an [awful] state," the shocked witness added. "We called the 'street medics,' many came, they didn't even understand at first he had his hand blown off."

The Ruptly crew who filmed the horrific aftermath of the blast injury say they rushed over after hearing an explosion, and found the injured protester surrounded by paramedics.

Cost for US troops to rise 8.2%

South Korea signed a provisional agreement to pay around 1.04 trillion won this year for the stationing of U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) troops here, a rise of 8.2 percent year-on-year.

Chang Won-sam, the top negotiator in defense cost-sharing negotiations and Timothy Betts, acting deputy assistant secretary and senior adviser for security negotiations and agreements of U.S. State Department signed the one-year contract at the foreign ministry in Seoul, Sunday which the South will pay 1.038 trillion won ($923 million) for stationing 28,500 USFK soldiers in South Korea. The figure was to reflect an 8.2 percent increase of Seoul's own defense budget in 2019 year-on-year. The South paid 960.2 billion won for the defense cost sharing in 2018.

The official Special Measures Agreement (SMA) will be officially signed by Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Harry Harris after Cabinet members and President Moon Jae-in approve the preliminary document. The SMA will take effect after National Assembly ratifies it around April.

The agreement came after months-long negotiations between the two since last year.

Border wall talks break down ahead of second possible government shutdown

With less than a week to go until another potential partial federal government shutdown begins on Friday, bipartisan compromise talks on funding for President Trump's proposed border wall have completely broken down, sources tell Fox News.

The sudden development again raised the possibility that Trump will declare a national emergency to access previously appropriated funds to initiate construction on a border wall. The White House agreed to a temporary spending bill late last month to end a 35-day government shutdown, although Trump said at the time that the move was not a "concession" and that he would not relent on his demands for a wall.

"Talks have broken down because Senate Republicans are refusing to compromise on limits to the Trump administration’s cruel immigration policies," a senior Democratic aide told Fox News on Sunday. "A deal that includes new physical barriers must also include limits on the number of ICE detention beds. If Senate Republicans won’t compromise with us on both, we can’t reach a deal.”

As recently as Friday, congressional negotiators said they expected a deal to be made, although they indicated that money for physical barriers would likely end up well below the $5.7 billion that Trump has sought to begin construction of the wall.

The amount discussed hovered much closer to $1.6 billion, participants in the negotiations said, a figure that was in a bipartisan Senate bill last year.

"That's what we're working toward," said California Democratic Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard.

On "Fox News Sunday," Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told Fox News that an emergency declaration remains on the table as one of many options.

"There are other funds of money that are available to [Trump] through something called reprogramming, there is money he can get at and is legally allowed to spend," Mulvaney said, noting that some funds were available even without declaring an emergency. "And I think it needs to be said again and again this is going to be legal –there are statues on the book as to how any president can do this."

Mulvaney added that a national emergency was "absolutely on the table."

Earlier this weekend, Democrats seemed to draw a firm line on spending.

"Throughout the talks, Democrats have insisted that a border security compromise not be overly reliant on physical barriers," said Evan Hollander, spokesman for Democrats who control the House Appropriations Committee. "We will not agree to $2 billion in funding for barriers."

The White House has previously offered a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, in exchange for the $5.7 billion Trump has been seeking for a barrier along the nation's southern border with Mexico. The offered deal would also extend protections for 300,000 recipients of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program – which protects immigrants from designated countries with conditions that prevent nationals from returning safely.

But Democrats have called the border wall nothing more than a political stunt that they will never agree to fund, while Republicans point to what they have called a "crisis" at the border. Central Americans are increasingly entering the United States illegally in groups of at least 100 people in rugged, remote stretches of the Mexican border, authorities said Friday upon releasing January figures that show total arrests fell for a second straight month.

A group of 325 Central Americans surrendered to agents Thursday near Lukeville, Ariz., according to Customs and Border Protection. Migrants told authorities that buses and trucks dropped them off throughout the night on a nearby Mexican highway that runs parallel to the border and they entered the U.S. together to wait for agents to find them. There were nearly 150 children, including 32 who were traveling alone.

The Border Patrol has encountered groups of at least 100 people 60 times since Oct. 1, compared to 13 during the entire 2018 fiscal year and two in the 2017 fiscal year, officials said. Many are in the desolate New Mexico Bootheel and Arizona deserts.

Pelosi Insists VA Blackface, MeToo Scandals Won’t Hurt ‘National Democratic Brand’

9 Feb 2019

In recent weeks, embattled Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) admitted that he had put on blackface while he was a medical student, Attorney General Mark Herring (D) revealed that he also put on blackface while he was a college student at the University of Virginia.

Meanwhile, a California professor accused Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax (D) of sexual assault, alleging that Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex during the 2004 Democratic National Convention. And on Friday, a day after Pelosi insisted that these scandals will not harm national Democrats, another woman, Meredith Watson, alleged that Fairfax raped her while they were students at Duke University.

When Pelosi was asked if the scandals will hurt the “national Democratic brand,” she replied, “No, it does not.”

National Democrats who are banking on defeating Trump in 2020 by doubling down on the politics of race and MeToo walked into a trap when nearly all of them jumped into Virginia’s politics and called on Northam to resign. When scandals then engulfed Fairfax and Herring, many national Democrats started dodging questions, unable to say they would not get involved in Virginia’s politics days after nearly all of them jumped in to condemn Northam.

Last week, Northam apologized for appearing in either blackface or a KKK hood in a photo on his yearbook page before promptly denying the next day that he was in the photo. Northam did reveal, though, that he had put black shoe polish on his face to look like Michael Jackson for a dance contest in Texas.

A group advocates of President Donald Trump’s vision for increased security along the U.S. southern border joined hands in New Mexico along the U.S.-Mexico. They were physically showing their support for the construction of a border wall.

The demonstrators waved flags and held signs such as “STOP the drugs destroying our youth” at a location along the partially fenced border in Sunland Park, New Mexico, just across the line from Ciudad Juarez in Mexico’s Chihuahua State, Fox News reported.

Footage shared by True Conservatives Minutes (TCM) featured an organizer addressing the crowd through a megaphone, asking “Do you feel it’s right that these gentlemen have to kiss their families every night potentially it being their last night for them because of this?” referring to border patrol agents working along a section of the border without a barrier. The crowd replied “No!”

One of the demonstrators cited by Reuters said the reason for the demonstrators was to call attention to the problems caused by a lack of border security.

“We are here to bring attention to that fact that there isn’t a wall here,” said Anthony Aguero, a resident from El Paso, Texas, adding, ” We have to secure our nation and at the same time we are securing the nation, all of these people will be able to live in peace because all the drug and human trafficking that passes through here won’t happen here. They will have to find somewhere else.”

Nancy Pelosi Gets Rock Star Treatment at Clive Davis Gala

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The audience at Clive Davis' white-hot gala included Barbra Streisand, Joni Mitchell and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who got the most requests to take a selfie.

Pelosi received rock star treatment Saturday night from attendees at the annual pre-Grammy event, which also featured a stunning tribute to the late Aretha Franklin, an artist Davis worked closely with for decades.

Pelosi's sarcastic handclap and smirk to President Donald Trump at his State of the Union address went viral last week and launched hundreds of memes. So when Davis announced that she was in the audience — Pelosi has attended in the past — she received a standing ovation, while some people even imitated her now-famous handclap.

At the top of the event and as she tried to exit, people asked to take selfies, almost creating a line as Pelosi smiled through them all.

A wide range of celebrities attended event at the Beverly Hilton, including Apple's Tim Cook, Netflix's Ted Sarandos, recent Super Bowl champ Julian Edelman, Wolfgang Puck, Earth, Wind & Fire, Dionne Warwick, Kathy Griffin, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Calvin Klein, Angela Bassett, Berry Gordy, Fred Armisen, George Clinton and Darren Criss.

The night closed with a rousing tribute to Franklin, who died in August. R&B singer-songwriter Jazmine Sullivan stunned with her renditions of "Call Me" and "I Knew You Were Waiting," then joined by Rob Thomas, who held his own onstage. Soul singer Ledisi, a powerhouse vocalist, also shined while sister duo Chloe x Halle, nominated for two Grammys, brought the house down when they performed "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves."

Rapper Travis Scott, nominated for three Grammys, kicked off the night with the hit "Goosebumps." Before performing "Sickomode," which reached No.1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart last year, he told the audience: "I only came to rage."

"Don't be scared to stand up now," Scott's DJ said.

The Time made a surprise appearance, bringing the audience to its feet with a fun performance. The group, along with Quincy Jones, honored Clarence Avant, the 87-year-old music executive known as the "godfather of black music."

H.E.R., nominated for five Grammys including album of the year, continued to prove why she's the artist to look out for, earning a standing ovation for her spectacular vocals and skilled guitar playing. Other performers included Brandi Carlile, Florida Georgia Line with Bebe Rexha, and Keala Settle, who sang "This Is Me" from "The Greatest Showman."

Davis' event was also attended by James Brolin, Beck, Joe Walsh, Alice Cooper, A$AP Rocky, Diane Warren, LL Cool J, David Foster, Miguel, Chick Corea, Maren Morris, Rae Sremmurd, Ryan Tedder, Max Martin, Courtney B. Vance, L.A. Reid, Dua Lipa, Ciara and Russell Wilson.

Planned Parenthood’s ties to eugenics go far beyond Margaret Sanger

One of the more frustrating things pro-lifers hear from abortion supporters is the claim that Planned Parenthood has never been about eugenics. It is simply intellectually dishonest as well as a total denial of history to make such a claim. Such was the case recently when MSNBC’s Joy Reid defended Planned Parenthood and cut off a guest who criticized Hillary Clinton because she once admitted that she admired Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger.

According to author George Grant in his book Grand Illusions: The Legacy of Planned Parenthood: [Sanger] began to build the work of the American Birth Control League, and ultimately, of Planned Parenthood. Margaret relied heavily on the men, women, ideas, and resources of the Eugenics movement. Virtually all of the organization’s board members were Eugenicists. Financing for the early projects from the opening of the birth control clinics to the publishing of the revolutionary literature – came from Eugenicists. The speakers at the conferences, the authors of the literature and the providers of the services were almost without exception avid Eugenicists. And the international work of Planned Parenthood were originally housed in the offices of the Eugenics Society while the organizations themselves were institutionally intertwined for years.

Sanger was an avowed eugenicist and a member of the American Eugenics Society, and she also proudly spoke to the Ku Klux Klan, something she described in her autobiography…I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366)

But, as abortion supporters who view Sanger as a heroine often do, they make the claim that Sanger is dead and therefore we are to simply ignore her Klan interactions, eugenics connections, rants about immigrants, push for forced sterilization and her failed goal of merging with the Eugenics Society. Today, we are told that Sanger was a product of her day and that her attempt to have the “unfit” sterilized, the “feebleminded” shipped off, or her radical suggestion that couples be forced to get a permit from the state to have children (she wrote: “No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit for parenthood“) had no lasting impact on the organization she founded, namely, Planned Parenthood.

The fact is that despite the claims of their supporters, not only does Planned Parenthood have a connection to eugenics separate from their founder, but many of Planned Parenthood’s officials were members or leaders of the American Eugenics Society. The following is a very abbreviated list of examples.

Let’s stop and consider the intentional blindness to truth that Joy Reid and others would have to have to claim that Planned Parenthood is not a eugenic organization. The fact is that Planned Parenthood was so supportive of the evil eugenics ideology that they advertised in eugenics journals. For Reid and others who doubt this fact, I provide some examples below (notice that their goals and beliefs go far beyond “reproductive rights”).

The Eugenics Society’s honorary secretary even encouraged funding IPPF, saying, “The Society’s activities in crypto-eugenics should be pursued vigorously, and specifically that the Society should increase its monetary support of the FPA and the IPPF [International Planned Parenthood Federation]…” In summary, it is evident that from its inception, Sanger founded and nurtured Planned Parenthood in eugenics — and denying what is plain to see will never change that fact.

Oversight of Fetal Tissue Research

The Deputy Director for Intramural Research is responsible for oversight of all research that uses fetal tissue conducted by intramural scientists at the NIH, whether they are working in NIH facilities or with collaborators outside of NIH. All intramural scientists are informed of the policies and legal requirements applying to fetal tissue research. Oversight of fetal tissue research conducted by intramural investigators is summarized below.


NIH Office of Human Subjects Research Protections (OHSRP)

The Office of Human Subjects Research Protections (OHSRP) provides first-line advice and guidance to intramural investigators who are using or contemplate using fetal tissue. The DDIR directs that all experiments using human fetal tissue must be reviewed and approved either by OHSRP or an NIH IRB. See the Reminder for Intramural Investigators of Legal Requirements Regarding Acquisition and Use of Human Fetal Tissue for Research Purposes for additional information or the FAQs on the Policy and Procedures for Research Using Human Fetal Tissue in the IRP. If still unsure contact OHSRP directly (301-402-3444).


Annual Reports

Intramural investigators with NIH supported projects must file annual reports on their research. The text of these reports are available electronically, fully searchable and publicly accessible (http://intramural.nih.gov/search/index.taf). The Office of Intramural Research and the Scientific Directors of each Institute/Center directs investigators to specifically identify when human fetal tissue is used during the reporting period.


Scientific Directors

The Scientific Directors (SD), who provide immediate oversight of intramural research in each institute, are aware of the legal requirements governing acquisition and use of fetal tissue. They are directed to ensure that all scientists who use human fetal tissue in their research assure fetal tissue is used and acquired in accordance with the legal requirements.


Management Controls

In the annual Management Controls review, each Scientific Director will be asked to verify that he or she has reviewed the legal requirements regarding fetal tissue acquisition and use for research in their intramural program, and to identify and correct any potential problem areas.

What Happens to Unborn Babies After Abortion? Pathologists Share the Horrors

Some, we know, are cremated. Others are tossed in the trash, and discovered by pro-lifers like Dr. Monica Miller, who dutifully record their fate and give them the funeral and respect their humanity demands. But what about the other babies—the ones shipped off in containers and sealed buckets to pathology labs? When searching for the answer to that question, I found a series of horrifying testimonies on a Student Doctor Network Forum hosted by St. George’s University. On the discussion board, those who worked with the bodies of aborted babies shared their horror at what they saw.

“Anyone get tripped on these?” one wrote (spelling and grammar errors his), “I’m talking especially the big ones, where you can actually make out facial expressions like they knew they were being hacked the hell up (im serious). I almost went bonkers once over one, that is some scary crap. Am I the only pathologist who freaks when a 0.5 cm eye ball comes rolling out of bag and stares right at you…I know we are thinking this, just no one in pathology is talking about it.”

Another pathologist, identifying himself as “Andy Milonakis,” responded by saying, “Totally trippy man. We get a fair number of fragmented fetuses from abortion procedures and they come in a container with formalin. The fact that they’re all hacked up is disturbing to begin with. Of course, there is the whole eyeball issue which freaks me out as well. Echoing in my mind is the sound effects from the movie Psycho…Reee Reee Reee Reee Reee Reee Reee!”

The original poster continued, describing an absolutely nightmarish scene:

“One incident really freaked me, it was a boy fetus, at least 3+ pounds, around 24+ weeks. It sat decomposing because the rest of the staff was AFRAID of it, Im not joking. Then the chief of staff told me to deal with it because I was the FNG (f-kcin new guy) so I went to work. Pulled out 2 well formed arms and then the torso, headless. The head was at the bottom of the container, when I pulled it, he had this expression of such utter horror it flipped me wayyyy out, my PA saw it and ran, literally left work and went on disability (Im serious here). It was like a headless screaming baby, like it had been born at least for a split second to realize it was screwed and let out one agonal yelp. The story of this reverberated around the department, someone actually accused me of doing what should have been a ME case and threatened to call the medical board! Im not joking, I woke up once shortly after that in a cold sweat with piss running down my leg….not pretty.”

It is the eyes, it seems, that disturbs those dealing with the corpses of butchered pre-born children the most. Another pathologist wrote:

“Most of my abortion-path anecdotes come from my PSF. Here one of the residents grosses most of them in as part of some project he is doing, and we are more than happy to let him.

Bill Clinton cancels travel to Nigeria, says he does not want his visit politicised
February 11, 2019


By Editor

The planned visit of a former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, for Wednesday has been cancelled.
Clinton was expected to witness the second signing of the Second Peace Accord.

The General Abdulsalami Abubakar led National Peace Committee had said the former US President would present a keynote address at the signing ceremony that is expected to hold at the International Conference Centre, ICC, Abuja.

He was also expected that to hold meetings with President Muhammadu Buhari and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar aimed at nipping threats of unrest in the bud.

However, a statement by Clinton’s spokesman, Angel Ureña, regretted the former President’s visit might be politicised in a way that is not in line with the goals of the committee.

The statement said: “President Clinton appreciates General Abdulsalami Abubakar and the Nigerian National Peace Committee’s invitation to travel to Nigeria.

“He is incredibly supportive and respectful of the committee’s efforts, of the election process, and of the work being done to try to ensure a peaceful, free, fair, and transparent outcome.

“This is a crucial time in Nigeria, and President Clinton is hopeful that the election’s outcome reflects the will of the Nigerian people.

“Over the course of the last several days, and after various conversations with the different stakeholders, it’s become apparent that President Clinton’s visit to Nigeria has the potential to be politicized in a way that is not in line with the goals of the committee. Therefore, he will not be traveling to Abuja.
“He looks forward to talking to both candidates and General Abubarkar this week”

By the way, did you know that the Nazi "Final Solution" can trace its birth back to Dr. Paul Popenoe's 1933 'Eugenic Sterilization' in Margret Sanger's Birth Control Review? The article was based upon the work of Mr. Gosney and Dr. Popenoe experiences with California's 'forced sterilization' laws and their implementation. Margret Sanger's eugenics friends in academia helped Ernst Rudin, Alfred Ploetz and Reich Interior Minister Wilhelm Frick with the formation of an Expert Committee on Questions of Population and Racial Policy which eventually crafted Germany's Law for the Prevention of Genetically Diseased Offspring. In the unpublished autobiography of Leon Whitney (http://www.amphilsoc.org/mole/view?docId=ead/Mss.B.W613b-ead.xml), head of the American Eugenics Society. Whitney himself documents being the "go-between" for Hitler and Sanger.
