Planned Parenthood Promotes Prayer Event For Libs To Pray For More Abortions…

Or as Obama once said, “thank God” for Planned Parenthood.

Via LifeNews:

Planned Parenthood abortion business officials in Ohio are looking for volunteers to pray at a prayer event.

No, Planned Parenthood is not asking people to pray for an end to abortion in the way pro-life advocates pray at prayer events like 40 Days for Life. Instead the abortion giant is hoping Buckeye State residents will pray for more abortions.

As this Planned Parenthood announcement indicates, the abortion corporation wants people to join an abortion activist who is calling for prayer in response to the state’s refusal to expand Obamacare, which funds abortion and sends taxapayer dollars to the abortion giant. Planned Parenthood seeks people who think their religion calls on them to pray for “reproductive health,” which is a euphemism for abortion.

Louisiana Gov. Jindal To Reportedly Sue Federal Government Over Common Core

bobbyjindal

It is going to take the courts to stop Obamas agenda. Update to a previous story.

Via FOX News

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal reportedly will file a lawsuit against the Obama administration in federal court Wednesday, claiming that the Department of Education has illegally manipulated grant money and regulations to force states to adopt the controversial Common Core standards.

A draft copy of the lawsuit was provided to The Associated Press by the governor’s office. Jindal planned to file it Wednesday in the federal court based in Baton Rouge.

In the suit, Jindal argues that the Education Department’s $4.3 billion grant program “effectively forces states down a path toward a national curriculum” in violation of the state sovereignty clause in the Constitution and federal laws that prohibit national control of education content. The suit will ask a judge to declare the department’s actions unconstitutional and to keep it from disqualifying states from receiving Race to the Top funds based on a refusal to use Common Core or to participate in one of two state testing consortia tied to the department’s grant program.

Mass Mayor: Illegal “Minors” From Guatemala Enrolling In City Schools Have Graying Hair, “More Wrinkles Than I Have”…

And thanks to the Obama regime, the city is forbidden from verifying their ages (one of them turned out to be 35-years-old).

Via CNS News:

The mayor of Lynn, Mass. says that some of the illegal aliens from Guatemala who are enrolled in her city’s public schools are adults with graying hair and “more wrinkles than I have.”

“They are not all children,” Judith Flanagan Kennedy told reporters at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.

“One of the things that we did notice when we were processing some of these students coming in was that they were adults,” she said.

She added that the federal government will not allow school officials to verify their ages even though one of the students turned out to be 35 years old.

VA Depicts Veterans As Oscar The Grouch…

Classy.

Via Washington Times:

Just as President Obama is promising to reform the veterans’ health care and restore “dignity” to the system, the Veterans Affairs office in Philadelphia is apologizing for depicting dissatisfied veterans as Oscar the Grouch in an internal training guide.

A slide show presented to VA employees last week portrayed veterans as the grumpy Sesame Street character who lives in a garbage can. The training guide also described veterans as possibly having unrealistic expectations, and advises staffers to apologize for the public “perception” of the scandal-ridden agency.

In one slide, a sign reading “CRANKY” hangs from the rim of Oscar’s garbage can. In another, Oscar’s face is accompanied by the words “100% GROUCHY, DEAL WITH IT.”

The presentation included tips on how to tell if a veteran is nearing an “outburst,” including being accusatory, agitated, demanding, or unfocused, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. It was delivered to VA staffers in advance of two town-hall meetings to be held for veterans in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

He was testing the site for glitches.

Via NY Daily News

An ex-cyber security chief at the Department of Health and Human Services was convicted on Tuesday on several counts of child pornography.

Timothy DeFoggi, 56, was found guilty of engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, conspiracy to advertise and distribute child pornography and accessing a computer with intent to view child pornography.

He was listed as an employee with top clearance at the HHS up until January 2014, though he was charged and held without bail in May 2013. [...]

He was arrested as part of an FBI investigation into three child pornography websites closed down by the agency in 2012.

His activities on the site included accessing child pornography and expressing sexual fantasies — including raping and murdering children — in his communication with other site members.

“DeFoggi even suggested meeting one member in person to fulfill their mutual fantasies to violently rape and murder children,” the Department of Justice said of DeFoggi’s activities.

AFL-CIO And La Raza Lead Group Calling For Obama To Give “Dreamers” Access To Obamacare…

Via The Hill:

A coalition of public health, labor and immigrant rights groups is urging President Obama to extend health coverage to immigrants allowed to remain in the United States under the administration’s controversial deferred action program.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), initiated via executive action in 2012, allows certain immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children to stay in the country and work.

But under guidance and regulations issued that year, those immigrants — often called “Dreamers” in reference to the stalled DREAM Act — are not entitled to health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, federal Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Roughly 80 national organizations, including the AFL-CIO, the National Council of La Raza and the American Public health Association, note in a letter to Obama that tax dollars from the DACA grantees help support those programs.

“To continue to restrict immigrants’ access to affordable health coverage and care is to undermine values of fairness and opportunity, and this administration’s own achievements in expanding access to coverage, lowering healthcare costs, and sustaining the healthcare system for future generations,” the groups write.

UNC Professors Call For Boycott of Israeli Academic Institutions…

Because Jews are evil and Palestinian terrorists are “freedom fighters,” or something.

Via Campus Reform:

Over 400 scholars and librarians worldwide have signed a letter calling for a boycott of Israeli academic institutions until the country concedes to their demands.

Four University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill professors are among the signees to the letter, which was published on a Jadaliyya, a website run by the Arab Studies Institute.

The letter says that “[w]orld governments and mainstream media do not hold Israel accountable for its violations of international law. We, however, as a community of scholars engaged with the Middle East, have a moral responsibility to do so.”

The letter demands that Israel “[e]nd its siege of Gaza, its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands occupied in June 1967, and dismantle the settlements and the walls;” “[r]ecognize the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel and the stateless Negev Bedouins to full equality;” and “[r]espect, protect, and promote the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN Resolution 194.”

The four UNC professors include: Associate Professors of History Sarah Shields and Cemil Aydin; Associate Professor of Religion Juliane Hammer; and Department of Asian Studies Chair Nadia Yaqub.

Liberal College Professors Changing Their Curriculum To Include Lessons On Ferguson Shooting…

Protesters throw rocks and attempt to block the street after protests in reaction to the shooting of Michael Brown turned violent near Ferguson, Missouri

Just because we still don’t know what happened, that isn’t going to stop liberal academia from using Ferguson to teach their students how evil and racist America is.

Via Campus Reform:

Professors in St. Louis are revising class curriculums to integrate “sensitive issues of race and policing” that have surfaced since the August 9 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

The 18-year-old was laid to rest Monday, initiating student discussions about issues of racial profiling, use of force, and tensions exacerbated by economic disparities.

Criminal Justice and Sociology professors claim their new curriculums put a face on their case studies, whereas professors working in other departments had to grapple with issues of relevance but found a way to “prompt calls for change.” [...]

Clarissa Rile Hayward teaches “Power, Justice, and the City” and “History of Political Thought II: Legitimacy, Equality, and the Social Contract” at Washington University in St. Louis.

In Hayward’s course, she plans to “examine power and racial injustice, resistance to power in urban America, and power and justice in American suburbs.” She claims that Ferguson will be relevant “in every case.” [...]

Cindy Epperson is a professor teaching “Introduction to Sociology” and “Crime and Society” at St. Louis College at Meramec, and is also Ferguson into her classes.

“We’ll talk about how the life and death of this young man will lead to social change,” says Epperson. The course curriculum is aimed at “debunking stereotypes and myths.”

“Most of the looters shown in the media were black, so people who believe this is what black people do [and] are going to say, ‘see I told you so.’”

Hollywood Moonbat Scarlett Johansson Designs T-Shirt For Planned Parenthood, Accuses Pro-Lifers Of Being “Sexist”…

scarleto90

Hollywood sucks, end of story.

Via The Hill:

Actress Scarlett Johansson designed a new T-shirt to help raise funds for Planned Parenthood’s Action Fund ahead of November’s midterms and is slamming the Supreme Court’s ruling in Hobby Lobby.

“When I heard that some politicians were cheering the Supreme Court’s decision to give bosses the right to interfere in our access to birth control, I thought I had woken up in another decade,” said Johansson in a statement.

Johansson, who has starred in Hollywood hits including Iron Man and Lost in Translation, designed the shirt to help the pro-abortion-rights group’s political arm raise money for its “Women are Watching” campaign. [...]

The pink T-shirts designed by Johansson read, “Hey Politicians! The 1950s called …” on the front. On the back, the shirts say: “They want their sexism back!” Text on the left sleeve is signed, “Love Scarlett Johansson.”

Democrats believe that access to birth control will be a crucial issue in the coming cycle and have charged Republicans with waging a “war on women” as they fight to retain their Senate majority.

Thanks To Illegals Flooding The Border, Record High 375,000 Pending Immigration Cases, Minimum 3-Year Delay…

Meaning once they get in the U.S. it will take a minimum of 3 years to get rid of them, most skip their hearings so the number who will actually be deported is miniscule.

Via Washington Examiner:

Two top federal judges Wednesday said the nation’s immigration courts are in chaos, with the backlog of cases at an historic high of 375,000 for just 227 judges, leading to a minimum three-year delay in hearings for illegal immigrants.

In Washington to take advantage of the current crisis to demand a new court system, the judges accused the Justice Department of treating their courts like Cinderella’s abusive family by starving them of money and support and blamed the insufficient Justice funding for letting illegals “linger” in the country.

“Immigration courts are the forgotten stepchild,” said Immigration Judge Dana Leigh Marks of San Francisco. She was speaking on behalf of the National Association of Immigration Judges, which she is president of.

Palestinians Demand U.N. And Western States Try Citizens Who Served In The Israeli Army For “War Crimes”…

000_Nic6339646-e1402998872761

And what about those peace-loving Palestinians raining rockets down on Israeli civilians?

RAMALLAH, West Bank, Aug. 27 (UPI) — Palestinian foreign minister Riad al-Maliki has sent a letter urging foreign governments to investigate Israel for war crimes it alleges were committed during the 50-day conflict in Gaza.

Maliki wrote to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the U.K., U.S., France, Australia, Canada, South Africa and five Latin American countries, asking them to exercise their responsibility as U.N. member nations to investigate and try people who allegedly violate international law.

Israeli forces have “committed war crimes during the repeated assaults on Gaza in the present, as in the past,” he wrote. “They have engaged in indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks. Such actions have caused death and injury to thousands of Palestinian civilians, including children, and massive destruction to civilian properties, in grave breach of international humanitarian and human rights law.”

In writing to foreign states, Maliki highlighted the Mahal programs run by the Israeli Defense Forces, which allow 18- to 24-year-old Jewish people who do not hold Israeli citizenship to volunteer for the IDF.

Maliki demands foreign states identify their citizens serving in the IDF and investigate allegations into whether they “were involved in the commission and/or the aiding and abetting of war crimes during the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip, and prosecuting these individuals where appropriate.”
