Indiana is set to challenge the injunction set by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt against defunding of abortion.
It is also challenging the US health and human services decision to block amendments to the state medicaid plan.
Both cases will wind up in the US 7th Circuit court of appeals in Chicago.
Live Action Does it Again….. Indiana Planned Parenthood serves less than 1 % of medicaid patients. Listen to the various Indiana Planned Parenthood clinic workers informing that the care they provide is available elsewhere.
Pope Benedict XVI tweeted a message to announce the start up of the new Vatican news service which he hopes will streamline communciation from the Vatican to the world, and even assist it’s internal communications.
Assimilation will occur via the website, Facebook, Twitter, RSS feed, Youtube, and Flickr. Resistance is futile! ;-)
Pope Benedict officially clicks to publish the news website.
Nutty Obama scolds congress today for failing to raise the debt ceiling. This is a quote from his speech, revealing his strategy to pay the debt by incurring more debt.
“These are bills that Congress ran up. The money’s been spent. The obligations have been made. So this is not a situation – I think the American people have to understand this – this is not a situation where you know, Congress is going to say, ‘Okay, we won’t buy this car or we won’t take this vacation.’ They took the vacation, they bought the car, and now they’re saying maybe we don’t have to pay or we don’t have to pay as fast as we said we were going to. That’s not how responsible families act. We’re the greatest nation on earth and we can’t act that way. So this is urgent and it needs to get settled.”
Vince Cefalu is the ATF agent who has revealed and criticized his employer for the fast and furious operation which now has the whole agency in hot water, as well as director Ken Melson, and US Atty. General, Eric Holder.
Supposedly the corruption prevention measures in the federal government confer protection upon whistleblowers……… except at the ATF, where firing them is OK
A clerical error on a passport has landed Elisha Dawkins, a veteran military photographer in jail. Yep, he checked the wrong box regarding whether he had filled out a passport before. Two months in the slammer so far. You better watch how you fill out those government forms.
Who would want to serve this kind of government voluntarily?
This is the result of a retrial following a deadlocked jury at the first trial.
Naturally, the clueless, former Gov. Rod Blagojevich is having a hard time accepting that selling a senate seat, and his other forms of fraud and extortion are criminal acts, and that he’s going to get jailtime for them.
Stossel, now working at FOX, made this admission while interviewing Andrew Breitbart.
Pharmer has the inside track on something that FOX News has not been eager to cover: stories containing the admission that birth control pills can operate by stopping the life of an early human embryo. Fox News reporters would call for interviews dealing with this issue time and time again, take down information, then never call back. At that time, other news networks, newspapers and radio were still permitted to deal with this subject. It was also covered on the O’Reilly Factor elsewhere on the FOX network.
More recently, FOX was able to mention that pharmacists were resisting the Blagojevich order forcing them to dispense all birth control pills in 2005, but we can’t find this year’s Illinois Judicial decision in favor of the pharmacy owners on their network. Maybe it’s buried somewhere deep.
Not to worry, the real news is on the internet now, and the New Media have taken up this story, and many others which the Old Media will not cover.
Beware 95 year old women wearing adult incontinence products. Those things could fill up, explode, and blow up a plane! That’s the apparent view of Homeland Insecurity, which requires the TSA to be groping underneath the diapers of the extremely elderly.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Marie Walton Pratt ruled on Friday (in time for the news to be hidden over the weekend) to Block portions of the new Indiana abortion law, particularly the part which stopped state funding to planned parenthood. Judge Walton Pratt was nominated by Sen Evan Bayh, and appointed by Obama, apparently to help carry out the leftist agenda of keeping Indiana’s minority populations under control.
The Indiana Atty. General is likely to appeal.
U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker blocked parts of Indiana’s new immigration law, claiming that immigration is a federal issue. Judge Sarah Evans Barker, a 1984 Reagan appointee, after a quarter century, is signaling her readiness to retire, in a manner analogous to that of Senator Richard Lugar.
In this Belgian study, 23.5 percent of the lung transplants are taken from euthanized patients. Better outcomes for the recipient are reported using these organs rather than those from accident or trauma victims.
According to a Canadian Medical Association report, 20 percent of Belgian nurses, interviewed for their study, reported involvement in euthanasia, with half of those cases being without request or consent of the patient.
(Perhaps there’s reason that Hugo Chavez hasn’t been doing any of his medical tourism in Belgium. )
Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez has been in Cuba for surgery, which offers a partial explanation for his having disappeared from the airwaves.
Imagine having no physicians in one’s country capable of performing abdominal surgery, and choosing Cuba as the preferred location for said treatment. The latest story is that an abscess has been removed from Chavez’s pelvic region.
Pro-abort, Governor Christina Gregoire is hanging up the cannula of office , we hear, having decided not to run for a third term. Things apparently won’t improve much for pro-lifers if Republican Rob McKenna succeeds in his bid. A claim to be Catholic doesn’t necessarily mean pro-life.
While the court case concerning Indiana’s new law defunding abortion clinics is decided, Indiana planned parenthood is closing its clinics for a day, and stopping services to its 9300 Medicaid patients.
There is no expectation for the supporters of planned parenthood to make up the 1.3 million dollar per year shortfall to allow free care for the underprivileged.
Things are not the same for this organization as it is for the pro-life crisis pregnancy care centers.
Hospitals can create a mini corporation and sector it off to do all the objectionable stuff using private funds.
This is really easy. A building does not have to contain only one corporation. It’s very easy to rent out a section to another corporation which does the unfundable activity while the rest of the institution qualifies for federal funds.
This can be done for a hundred thousand bucks or less in some cases. If the law gets picky, they can park a single wide outside and get er done.
Hospitals at this time are turning themselves inside out, spending millions upgrading technology to remain qualified for medicare and medicaid funds.
Segregating the abortions sufficiently to remain qualified for federal funds is no big deal for most institutions, other than than having some of their benefactors find out what is being done there.
Mitt can stop pretending that he’s pro-life enough to honor our desire not to pay for the killings.
Rick Perry put that TX law which would criminalize enhanced pat downs by the TSA back on the agenda for the special session of the legislature. It has previously passed the house, but was pulled off the senate agenda after some sabre rattling by U.S. Atty. John Murphy.
There are about 1400 total waivers granted from Obamacare so far. Late Friday there was a decision to halt any more waivers to industries, which would be damaged by the new health care regulations, as of Sept. 22 this year.
There has been difficulty for the administration in justifying its choices of which businesses are worthy of preserving until 2012 by granting waivers from the onerous cost of Obamacare regulations.
How did a fawn get hung on a power line in Montana? Apparently with the help of a bald eagle. The above story tells of a tiny deer carcass hanging on one line, and making contact with second line, causing a power outage.
Pharmer can tell you that a newborn deer weighs about as much as a small cat, having picked one up in an attempt to save it from the dogs. They’re all legs. So it would be entirely possible for a big bird of prey to snag one and drop it on a high wire.
There was another one by the new cornfield three weeks ago, crying to its mother, who hid in the pine trees watching the biped working next to her baby. She collected her fawn a bit later, when the pharmer headed back to the house.
The Susan G. Komen foundation has been contributing to Planned Parenthood for years, and referring people to that organization for mammograms. Planned Parenthood has no mammography equipment at its clinics, and refers its patients elsewhere for that cancer screening procedure.
Komen has no plans to defund planned parenthood, nor stop referrring to that organization for nonexistenet mammograms
