THE PRICE OF FETAL PARTS – CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER

  “Thank you Planned Parenthood. God bless you.” — Barack Obama, address to Planned Parenthood, April 26, 2013 WASHINGTON — Planned Parenthood’s reaction to the release of a clandestinely recorded conversation about the sale of fetal body parts was highly revealing. After protesting that it did nothing illegal, it apologized for the “tone” of one of its senior directors. Her remarks lacked compassion, admitted Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. As if Dr. Deborah Nucatola’s cold and casual discussion over salad and wine of how the fetal body can be crushed with forceps in a way that leaves valuable organs intact for sale is some kind of personal idiosyncrasy. On the contrary, it’s precisely the kind of psychic numbing that occurs when dealing daily with industrial scale destruction of the growing, thriving, recognizably human fetus. This was again demonstrated by the release this week of a second video showing another official sporting that same tone, casual and even jocular, while haggling over the price of an embryonic liver. “If it’s still low, then we can bump it up,” she joked, “I want a Lamborghini.” Abortion critics have long warned that the problem is not only the obvious — what abortion does to the fetus — but also what it does to us. It’s the same kind of desensitization that has occurred in the Netherlands with another mass exercise in life...

TSA Administrator Reassigned

LAKE HAVASU CITY–The Department of Homeland Security announced this past month that the acting Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was reassigned after airport screeners failed to detect explosives and weapons in nearly every test done by an undercover team at several airports across the country. “In today’s technologically advanced world, why are we still relying on old, faulty systems needed to protect the lives of American citizens?” Supervisor Buster Johnson, 1st Vice President of the National Association of Counties Cyber Security Task Force Team, questioned. “The next groups of terrorists will more than likely be cyber criminals and they always seem to be one step ahead of our intelligence. Unless we fix the security flaws in our current technology another terrorist attack on American soil is inevitable,” Johnson stated. As the fourteenth anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks that shocked American on September 11th, 2001, approaches this coming fall, Americans should be concerned. According to a report done by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, over the past six years the federal government has given the TSA over $540 million in grant money for baggage screening equipment plus millions more on training for TSA officers. “The failure rate of this equipment today is higher than it was in 2007,” Supervisor Johnson said. “As our national debt continues to increase as much as $2.14 billion per day,...

Small Community Air service Grant requests issued

MOHAVE COUNTY-The U.S. Department of Transportation released a request for grant submittals Friday for Small Community Air Service, said Gary Kellogg, with Partnership for Economic Development. “There is a thirty day window to file our grant,” said Kellogg. “As last year, what we will be proposing is three (3) flights a day during the week, one (1) on Saturday and two (2) on Sunday. This is modified air service in that we would be flying fixed base operator (FBO) here to a FBO in Phoenix. It is really the only option at this time for us to have any type of air service, but it is an important start.” Kellogg continued, “We have the operator in place which is a plus for the grant. The consultant and the operator have estimated the round trip costs would be, plus or minus, around three hundred ($300.00) per round trip. They will continue to look at these prices for any possible savings. The grant request is for $400,000.00 with a one fifth match or $100,000 from the community for total of $500,000. At this point the PED is online for the $100,000, with help from a local business who is picking up $25,000. We would like to raise another $25,000 to demonstrate broad community support and bring the PED’s contribution down to $50,000. Any help here is greatly appreciated. Anyone wishing to...

The Conservative Republican Club of Kingman’s June Meeting

The June meeting, which is early this month, on June 15th, at 11:15 AM (or so) at the Dambar Steakhouse, CRCK is proud to present Trevor Laky, the Regional Coordinator for the Heritage Action for America.  Trevor is a young man who was President of the College Republicans at the University of Arizona.  After graduation, he moved to Washington, Den of Communists, er, D.C., where he worked on several campaigns, and interned with Congressman Matt Salmon.  He also worked for Dennis Cuccinelli in Virginia (for those of you who don’t follow those things, Mr. Cuccinelli was the former Attorney General of Virginia who ran for Governor against the Clintonite Terry McAuliffe – a/k/a Terry McAwful, ex-head of the DNC.  He was a Tea-Party conservative who received almost no support from the “establishment Republicans”, was predicted to lose by 20 points, yet almost won), before returning to Arizona. Mr. Laky will speak on a number of topics.  Prime amongst them, however, he will speak about how to get the youth vote and how to get involved with social media.  I recognize many of us, who did not grow up with social media, are uncomfortable with computers and Facebook and Twitter and others.  Yet, these are growing into the most important means of influencing politicians – I think most people would be surprised at just how influential you can be using social media,...
