You can always count on Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee for the extremist OTT hysteria. This time after a Planned Parenthood was busted on camera for suggestion sex selection abortions.
The Republicans jumped on it. The Democrats killed it. And Lee went OTT.
“I think the next act will be dragging women out of patient rooms into the streets and screaming over their bodies as they get dragged out of getting access to women’s health care,” she said. “That’s what I feel like is occurring today with the legislation that is on the floor. Thomas, first of all, there is bipartisan and unilateral and unanimous support that we should not have agenda-based abortions for the sake of getting one gender over another. That’s a human, humane and humanitarian issue that none of us quarrel with.”
But we vote down outlawing it and The Mainstream Media will actively not report it though. 🙂
Jackson Lee explained her opposition stems from what she sees as the bill’s the invasion of privacy, and called the legislation “Draconian.”
“This bill is a direct intrusion into the relationship between patient and physician.”
Yeah,but so does ObamaCare. 🙂
“And it suggests, it puts on them the idea that they’re going go in and have an abortion for a dastardly reason other than the choice and the personal need and the faith conversation and medical needs of that particular patient.”
But if ObamaCare mandates force Catholics to act against their morals and their faith that’s ok. Nothing to worry about.
“But I cannot find in anyway this bill any legitimacy by criminalizing, incarcerating doctors,” she added. “We’re going back to the days of coat hangers. That’s what they want to do — they want to criminalize doctors because what that says is how do you know that a doctor is engaged in helping a woman abort because of the particular gender of the fetus?” (DC)
Just like SB1070, the liberals are lying about what the bills says because of their ideological bent.
Fascinating how ideological blinders work isn’t it folks! 🙂
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday condemned companies that pay women less than men, but was unwilling to condemn Senate Democrats who pay their female staffers less than male staffers, saying that the Senate is “another world.”
Yeah, Liberal Land. Where the only rules are that they make their own rules up and you have to follow them at any given second no questions allowed.
“It’s 2012. It’s 2012, everybody. What is it we’re talking about women getting paid less? Are you going home to your little girls each day and saying: ‘Work hard, study hard, be diligent so that when you grow up you can make less than your brother?”
She added, “There seems to be a decision somewhere in some companies and parts of our economy that that’s an okay thing to do.”
The Daily Caller asked Pelosi about a report in the Washington Free Beacon that revealed that women working for Senate Democrats in 2011 had an average salary of $60,877, whereas male staffers made about $6,500 more.
Pelosi chose not to condemn the Democratic senators, claiming that it is “another world.”
“When I was speaker, I was [the] highest paid person on Capitol Hill and the women took great joy in that,” she said, making an apparent defense of the current pay disparity.
So obviously, the pay disparity is due to her not being Speaker anymore. 🙂
And Gee, I thought “Lilly Ledbetter” was supposed to solve that. After all, last night in a debate about the latest Planned Parenthood scandal one of the defenses by the liberal was “well none of the representatives that voted for this voted for Lilly Ledbetter…”
As if that was a defense….
Liberal: I can create class warfare bitchiness but I can also do the exact thing I’m bitching about and you can’t call me on it because I’m special and above you mere mortals.
But you can feel better though about Pelosi:
“Because I know the Constitution. This bill is iron clad, it is iron clad. Nobody was frivolous with the Constitution and the health of the American people when writing the bill [ObamaCare].”
That’s Iron ‘something’, but it’s not clad… 🙂
OBAMA at Fundraiser
“Their message will be, ‘You’re upset, you’re unsatisfied. It’s Obama’s fault.’ But I’m not worried. The reason I’m not worried is because of you,” Obama said.
(But his $38,500 a plate fundraisers aren’t for 1%ers and evil “rich” people though)
Obama contrasted his vision of government’s role in the economy and society in wide-ranging remarks to the audience, and continued his partisan attacks against Republicans.
Rep. Keith Ellison (D): ”ALEC movement to push gov’t issued ID bills was done w/ malice aforethought. Advocates KNOW ‘voter fraud’ is a myth; the point is POWER.”
He also tweeted ”11% of all Americans lack gov’t issued Photo ID,” “18% of senior citizens don’t have a gov’t photo ID,” “25% of African Americans don’t have gov’t photo ID” and “78% of Black men between 18 and 24 in WI do not have state issued photo ID. Wonder why Gov. Scott Walker pushed photo ID in WI?”
Ellison’s statistics are from the Center for American Progress, from the article “Voter Suppression 101: How Conservatives Are Conspiring to Disenfranchise Millions of Americans.”
Government-issued IDs are required to open a bank account, use a debit card, set up direct deposits, board a plane and enter government buildings, among many other activities.
1. Boarding an airplane
2. Writing a check
3. Cashing a check
4. Using a credit card
5. Driving a motor vehicle
6. Applying for a business license
7. Applying for permission to hold a protest or rally
8. Securing employment
9. Purchasing a house or real estate
10. Renting a domicile
11. Renting a motor vehicle
12. Purchasing a firearm (Includes BB guns)
13. Applying for a hunting license (waived for 16 and 17 year olds when their legal guardian provides a photo ID)
14. Applying for a fishing license (waived for 16 and 17 year olds when their legal guardian provides a photo ID)
15. Purchasing alcoholic beverages
16. Purchasing tobacco or products that contain nicotine
17. Purchasing a motor vehicle
18. Initial registration of a motor vehicle
19. Applying for a building permit
20. Receiving prescription medicine
21. Purchasing OTC medicine that contains pseudoephedrine
22. Serving on jury duty
23. Getting a bank account
24. Cash transactions of $5000.00 or greater
25. Sales tax exemption for people aged 80 and above
26. For example, in Nevada a person under 21 is not allowed to stand and observe games of chance in a casino.
So Ellison is right, it is about Power. The Power of Democrats to Cheat and Game the system with Dead People, ineligible people, and Illegal Aliens. 🙂
Thomas Sowell: Attorney General Eric Holder recently told a group of black clergymen that the right to vote was being threatened by people who are seeking to block access to the ballot box by blacks and other minorities.
This is truly world-class chutzpah, by an Attorney General who stopped attorneys in his own Department of Justice from completing the prosecution of black thugs who stationed themselves outside a Philadelphia voting site to harass and intimidate white voters.
This may have seemed like a small episode to some at the time, but it was only the proverbial tip of the iceberg. The U.S. Attorney who was prosecuting that case — J. Christian Adams — resigned from the Department of Justice in protest, and wrote a book about a whole array of similar race-based decisions on voting rights by Eric Holder and his subordinates at the Department of Justice.
The book is titled “Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department.” It names names, dates and places around the country where the Department of Justice stopped its own attorneys from pursuing cases of voter fraud and intimidation, when it was blacks who were accused of these crimes.
If Mr. Adams is lying, he has taken a huge risk in citing individuals by name and quoting them directly. Yet, despite the fact that most of those he accuses are lawyers, apparently no one has sued him. Moreover, Adams has also testified under oath before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, on the racial double standard at the Department of Justice, when it comes to voting rights.
What Attorney General Holder has been complaining loudly about, and launching federal lawsuits about, are states that require photo identification to vote. Holder calls this blocking minority “access” to the voting booths.
Since millions of black Americans — like millions of white Americans — are confronted with demands for photo identification at airports, banks and innumerable other institutions, it is a little much to claim that requiring the same thing to vote is denying the right to vote. But Holder’s chutzpah is up to the task.
Attorney General Holder claims that the states’ requirement of photo identification for voting, in order to prevent voter fraud, is just a pretext for discriminating against blacks and other minorities. He apparently sees no voter fraud, hears no voter fraud and speaks no voter fraud.
Despite Holder’s claim, a little experiment in his own home voting district showed how easy it is to commit voter fraud. An actor — a white actor, at that — went to a voting place where Eric Holder is registered to vote, and told them that he was Eric Holder.
The actor had no identification at all with him, either with or without a photo. He told the voting official that he had forgotten and left his identification in his car. Instead of telling him to go back to the car and get some identification, the official said that that was all right, and offered him the ballot.
The actor had the good sense not to actually take the ballot, which would have made him guilty of voter fraud — and, being white, he would undoubtedly have been prosecuted by Eric Holder’s Department of Justice.
But the actor had made his point. When a white man with no identification can go to a voting site, impersonate a black man who lives in that district, and get his ballot offered to him, then it is far too easy to commit voter fraud.
Does not Attorney General Eric Holder understand that? Of course he understands it! The man is not stupid, despite his other failings.
Holder’s pooh-poohing of voter fraud dangers, and hyping the “threat” of denying minorities “access” to the voting booth, are completely consistent with his drive to (1) maximize the number of votes by black Democrats and (2) spread as much fear as possible among minorities that they are under siege, and that the Democrats are their only protection and salvation.
It is a political protection racket, with payoffs in votes.
Nor can Holder’s boss, Barack Obama, be unaware of voter fraud. After all, he comes from Chicago, where voting officials refuse to discriminate against dead people.
And we can’t forget all those Illegal Aliens that the Democrats have been courting, especially if they are given Amnesty and become Democrats. 🙂
