Frogleg Minute: Turtlehead Edition

Ted Cruz’s Senate floor takedown of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell last Friday was epic. It was answered by shrill rebukes from RINOs and silence from supposed conservatives. At least Intellectual Froglegs gives it some of the follow-up it deserves — in the process raising welts across the backsides of McConnell, Boehner, & Co.:

In case you missed Mr. Cruz Goes to Washington, here’s the long version:

UC Irvine Applications Offer Six Options for Gender

In the real world, there are two genders, and you can tell the difference between them. But the pseudoworld imposed by our liberal ruling class is a bit more complicated:

One California college is asking students to define themselves from one of six genders on application forms.

Beginning this year, students applying to University of California Irvine will pick from male, female, trans male, trans female, gender queer/gender non-conforming and different identity.

I wish I could say that none of this freakish nonsense is relevant to someone’s qualifications to enter an institution of higher learning. But in the current environment, it may be more relevant than grades.

President of the UC system, Janet Napolitano, said: ‘UC is working hard to ensure our campuses model inclusiveness and understanding.

‘I’m proud of the work we’ve done so far, but it doesn’t stop there. We much continue to look at where we can improve so everyone at US feels respected and supported.’

Except of course normal people, those cis-centric patriarchal oppressors.

No word from Uncle Mort I mean President Napolitano on whether she put herself down as “trans male,” “gender queer/gender non-conforming,” or “different identity.”

Cecil the Lion, the Media, and the Liberal Mob

This Cecil the Lion hype is really getting scary. Big game hunting has been a favorite human pastime since caveman days. Now suddenly it is a big enough sin to easily overshadow Planned Parenthood carving up live babies and selling their body parts.

Has-been actress turned fulltime moonbat Mia Farrow doxxed Walter Palmer in evident hopes that he would be killed by some animal rights fanatic, disturbing even the leftists at Salon. PETA literally wants him hanged for bowhunting.

The poor guy is being investigated by the federal government, for crying out loud. Exploiting the hubbub for propaganda purposes, Zimbabwe (whose dictator eats baby elephants) is calling for extradition — to a country where whites are far more endangered than lions. Moonbats have been laying siege to his Minneapolis area dental office, demanding that he be sacrificed to the maniacal regime in Zimbabwe.

Meanwhile, back in reality, American tourists kill more than 380 lions in Africa every year. The supposedly heartbroken people of Zimbabwe are asking, what lion?

The story is completely contrived, displaying the media’s new favorite tactic of taking an everyday incident and hyping it into the story of the century in order to drive the liberal agenda. The most obvious example of this is the sociopathic black hoodlum who manages to get himself killed by the police — an event so commonplace that it barely warrants local media coverage, but that is now used to stampede the herd to trample concepts like rule of law and local policing.

Like many of the police officers who have stood in for Emmanuel Goldstein during the liberal media’s never-ending Two Minutes Hate, Palmer may not have been aware of doing anything wrong. He took the lion on private land. It is alleged that it was lured there from a national park. Whether this is even true and whether Palmer knew about it remain to be determined.

But of course the crime he is hated for is not violating some technicality but killing a lion. This was never wrong before, but suddenly now it is, just like a couple of years ago even Obama agreed that the concept of homosexual marriage was wrong, and now suddenly it could end your career not to agree that it is right.

This isn’t about some dangerous beast on the other side of the planet. The social engineers inciting the lynch mob have set their sights on hunting. Once it has been eradicated, from their point of view, we will have no excuse to own guns. Disarming us is a prerequisite for the absolute control required to impose their notion of utopia.

In the meantime, now that big game hunting has been targeted, you might want to stock up on the works of enthusiastic big game hunter Ernest Hemingway. His books may soon go the way of Dukes of Hazzard reruns.

Romney Throws Wet Blanket Over Cruz’s Criticism of Iran Deal

Remember when Ronald Reagan called for “raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors”? That banner is not going to be raised by “party elder” Mitt Romney:

From CNN:

“…@SenTedCruz is way over the line on the Obama terrorism charge. Hurts the cause,” Romney, acting in his emerging role as party elder, tweeted Thursday.

Cruz, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said Monday that President Barack Obama’s administration will become “the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism” if the Iran deal his administration brokered earlier this month goes into effect.

Cruz was referring to the billions of dollars in relief Iran will benefit from when international sanctions lift once Iran meets the new restrictions on its nuclear program, per the new deal.

That would be $150 billion, more than the US has given Israel since 1948, handed to the ayatollahs who openly want to kill us without gaining anything in return. Romney doesn’t explain how that does not make the Obama Regime the world’s leading financer of radical Islamic terrorism. He just objects to the bold colors. Mittens would prefer to tactfully avoid anything that makes the opposition look bad. That’s how he managed to blow the election.

If there is any silver lining to Obama still being in office, it’s that Mitt and his fellow mealy-mouthed RINOs no longer represent the GOP. They had their chance and they blew it. Now it’s time to give those bold colors a try.

Cooper Union Offers Supplementary Lessons by Looking Out the Window

This is handy. While imbibing left-wing ideology at a college in New York, students can look out the window and see the direct results of that ideology as it causes society to willfully disintegrate:

The glass facade of Cooper Union’s $111 million academic building offers a remarkable view — of a back alley packed with vagrants.

“I have seen drug deals, public urination, defecation, masturbation in broad daylight in the Taras Shevchenko alley,” a Cooper Union faculty member told The Post.

“It’s a place where many homeless congregate to sleep — right in front of a church and between a high school and a college,” the faculty member added.

Students, visitors to the East Village building’s multiple art galleries and even small kids who attend Preschool of the Arts housed at Cooper Union are greeted daily by a motley crew of drifters who bunk down on the pavement along Taras Shevchenko Place from about sunset through the morning rush hour.

Don’t waste any tears on the bums. Anyone familiar with the type of lowlife that washes up in Manhattan’s East Village knows that most could go back to living in their parents’ suburban basement whenever they choose. If they cleaned themselves up and had a few tattoos removed, they could even get jobs.

Looks Like Planned Parenthood Has Resorted to Hate Hoax

In a laughably desperate attempt to portray themselves as victims even in the light of recent revelations into the horrors they commit in the process of selling body parts from the babies they kill, the fiends at Planned Parenthood have apparently staged a hacking:

As Breitbart News reported, PP claimed that it had been hacked on Sunday evening. …

Intriguingly, while PP’s website does not show any negative changes from the alleged hackers, it does display a message that many critics are challenging is a public relations stunt. Even if PP was legitimately targeted by hackers over the weekend, there are a number of indicators that at this point, their website issues have been deliberately triggered.

As of Wednesday evening, visitors to www.PlannedParenthood.org would find a nearly empty site with text stating that: “We apologize, but our website is not available because of an extremist attack. 200,000 people a day are now being blocked from information and care by this attack.” The message reflects one of the group’s favorite strategies: to shield the details of their abortion services behind claims that they are simply providing “women’s health” or “reproductive services.”

planned-parenthood-phony-hack
Screenshot of PlannedParenthood.org homepage on July 29, 2015.

Below the text, a link that says “LEARN MORE,” which directs to Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s Facebook page. That Facebook page implores the reader to “help PP fight back,” by — no surprise here — making a donation.

Breitbart has details on why the hack is likely fake, intended to curry sympathy, rally supporters, and as always with Planned Parenthood, rake in money.

It should be noted that it cannot be proved conclusively that PP is faking their website being hacked. At minimum, they are certainly milking it for all it is worth — not shocking coming from the “never let a crisis go to waste” mindset.

Now they have changed the message to read: “Our normal site is currently undergoing maintenance,” apparently backing off from the shrill hacking claim.

Hanoi John Kerry Has “No Specific Knowledge of a Plan by Iran to Actually Destroy Us”

We can relax now. On Tuesday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee Hanoi John Kerry explained why it’s okay to give the ayatollahs $150 billion and lay down a red carpet on their pathway to nuclear weapons:

“I have no specific knowledge of a plan by Iran to actually destroy us.”

I wouldn’t be surprised if Kerry has no specific knowledge of what day of the week it is. The clueless boob makes Shrillary seem almost competent by comparison.

Maybe the Iran deal isn’t treason on his part, like his enemy-assisting activities during the Vietnam War. Maybe it’s just that all the Botox has gone to his brain. But letting him be Secretary of State would still be treason.

Planned Parenthood Has Been Dismembering Babies While Still Alive So As Not to Damage Saleable Parts

It seems obvious from the videos released by Center for Medical Progress that Planned Parenthood has been violating the law by trafficking in human body parts. But is it also guilty of committing partial birth abortion — or does it get around the law with digoxin-induced heart attacks?

Federal law prohibits partial-birth abortion, a gruesome procedure in which an unborn baby is intentionally turned to the breech position to ensure that delivery of the body happens before delivery of the head. Once the baby’s head is stuck in the birth canal, the abortionist punctures the skull, evacuates the contents, and the baby is dead.

There’s a good reason this practice is banned—it’s barbaric. Many Americans may not know that the term “partial-birth abortion” is not a medical one but a legal one. And, according to Planned Parenthood doctor Deborah Nucatola, some abortion providers don’t consider it with any seriousness. In her own words, “It’s not a medical term, it doesn’t exist in reality.” What?

It’s clear Nucatola thinks the law is irrelevant—or, as she says, up for “interpretation.” She explains how abortion providers get around the law by injecting a fatal quantity of digoxin, a cardiotoxic drug, into the baby’s heart before dismembering or delivering it. In Nucatola’s words, using the slang for digoxin, they “dig.” (Here’s the full footage of Nucatola and the transcript.)

Apparently “First, do no harm” is no longer taught in medical school.

Killing the baby in the womb has another advantage besides circumventing the partial birth abortion ban:

Moreover, you’ll find that a baby that has already died from a heart attack is apparently “softer” and easier to pull apart with metal instruments.

I wonder how candid Nucatola is with her patients about this process.

Someone who would do this to their own child would horrify Satan himself.

Liberals will argue that killing the baby with digoxin before moving on to the really gruesome procedures is more humane. But humane is the last word to use for Planned Parenthood.

In the second video, we find out explicitly from Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter that abortions performed with feticides aren’t viable for fetal-tissue donation. If digoxin is used, it renders the fetal stem cells unusable. (See the footage and the transcript.) Knowing this, Nucatola’s graphic explanation of how to “crush” unborn babies to maximize organ retrieval requires a clarifier. These babies are being strategically maneuvered, crushed, and dismembered under ultrasound guidance—while still alive.

It doesn’t matter what the left-wing oligarchs on the Supreme Court decree. No one has a “right” to do that to another human being.

If Planned Parenthood is not breaking the law, then we need to change the law.

If the courts won’t let us, we have to change the courts. In the end we are responsible for what we allow our liberal rulers to impose on us. No civilization that tolerates these horrors is fit to exist.

Fourth Planned Parenthood Video Throws the Horror Into Overdrive

Despite attempts by the liberal establishment to shut them up, Center for Medical Progress has released a fourth video. It may be the most horrifying yet. From CMP’s summary:

New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple times to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences. …

In the video, actors posing as representatives from a human biologics company meet with Ginde at the abortion-clinic headquarters of PPRM in Denver to discuss a potential partnership to harvest fetal organs. When the actors request intact fetal specimens, Ginde reveals that in PPRM’s abortion practice, “Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure, then we are intact.”

Since PPRM does not use digoxin or other feticide in its 2nd trimester procedures, any intact deliveries before an abortion are potentially born-alive infants under federal law (1 USC 8).

It would take a very liberal lawyer to explain how that wouldn’t be murder.

Ginde also suggests ways for Planned Parenthood to cover-up its criminal and public relations liability for the sale of aborted body parts. “Putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing,” Ginde remarks. “If you have someone in a really anti state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.”

Ginde implies that PPRM’s lawyer, Kevin Paul, is helping the affiliate skirt under the fetal tissue law: “He’s got it figured out that he knows that even if, because we talked to him in the beginning, you know, we were like, ‘We don’t want to get called on,’ you know, ‘selling fetal parts across states.’” The buyers ask, “And you feel confident that they’re building those layers?” to which Ginde replies, “I’m confident that our Legal will make sure we’re not put in that situation.”

The discussion makes it obvious that Planned Parenthood is engaging in these activities across the country.

Then they head for the lab. That’s where you will need a strong stomach.

As the buyers and Planned Parenthood workers identify body parts from last fetus in the path lab, a Planned Parenthood medical assistant announces: “Another boy!”

Anyone who defends Planned Parenthood will have a hard time avoiding a fiery afterlife. Meanwhile, the massive ongoing infusion of our money into this highly profitable organization by the federal government continues.

Loretta Lynch had better hurry up and find an excuse to shut down Center for Medical Progress. Who knows how nightmarish the fifth video will be?

Islam Is Recruiting Through Our Prisons

Not all of the Islam infecting our country is imported through insane and/or treasonous immigration policies. Some of it is bred in prisons:

Leon Nathan Davis, 37, of Augusta [Georgia], pleaded guilty on May 27 to attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State … according to court documents.

“This defendant planned for over a year to join, assist and fight alongside an enemy of the United States,” said U.S. Attorney Edward Tarver in a statement.

Davis was arrested on his way to Turkey.

“I was to be smuggled into Syria and at that point in time join ISIS,” Davis said during his 30-minute plea hearing in May, as reported by the Associated Press.

He appears to be a normal American, not some sinister foreigner imported from a hostile alien country by our equally hostile government. Here’s how he became a Muslim:

Davis told the judge he was brainwashed by radical Muslims while serving time for cocaine trafficking.

Prisons are the perfect recruiting grounds for Islam. Many of the radical Muslims doing the brainwashing behind bars are government employees. Our tax dollars are explicitly used to preach Islam to convicts.

In the past year, several dozen Americans have been charged for attempting to aid a foreign terrorist organization.

Unfortunately ISIS is starting to figure out that rather than bring them to the Middle East, it is more efficient to let American Muslims do their killing here, like Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. Our government will have ever more American blood on its hands for facilitating this.

Moonbats Think They Have Finally Found the Moral High Ground With Cecil the Lion

Morally bankrupt liberals finally have something to feel morally righteous about. An American dentist named Walter Palmer took down a ferocious beast with a bow and arrow on a safari.

Actress Debra Messing shrieks that Dr. Palmer should have his citizenship revoked.

Antigun fanatic Piers Morgan wants him hunted down and killed, and his head mounted on a wall.

Outraged journalists have finally recovered the reporting skills that have atrophied under Democrat rule. With a completely straight face, The Hill shouts out the astounding revelation that like countless thousands of others, Palmer donated to Mitt Romney. Romney has now been implicated in the gunning down of an African. Good thing the media warned the herd away from voting for him.

The lion was bested in Zimbabwe, which is ruled by Marxist dictator Robert Mugabe. At his recent 91st birthday bash earlier this year, Mugabe chowed down on baby elephant. But Mugabe denounces white safaris, so he’s okay.

This gives an idea of the moral perspective of the liberal establishment media:

America’s anchors have spoken: the shooting of one lion vastly outweighs the trafficking of baby parts by a taxpayer-funded abortion giant.

In other words, the broadcast news shows spent more time in one day on Cecil the Lion than they did on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks.

The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS censored the third video released Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting aborted baby parts — censored it at Planned Parenthood’s urging. But the news shows did find more than 14 minutes for a more important story: the “outrage” over the shooting of Cecil, a famed African lion, by an American dentist.

Tuesday, the networks spent 5 minutes, 44 seconds during their evening news shows on Cecil — and that’s not even counting the teasers. Wednesday morning, ABC, NBC and CBS lamented over the lion for 8 minutes, 17 seconds.

But they couldn’t do the same for a story of babies “picked” apart by tweezers.

To care more about animals than about humans is the mark of true depravity.

Court Forbids Release of Videos Exposing Planned Parenthood Partner

The Center for Medical Progress has shocked the country with the three videos it has released so far regarding the moral horrors indulged in by Planned Parenthood, which harvests body parts from the babies it kills and aggressively markets them for maximum profit, in brazen violation of federal laws. What future revelations might further videos have in store regarding Planned Parenthood and its partners in crimes against humanity? We may never know, because the country is run by liberals. Abortion is their primary sacrament; they will not tolerate threats to it:

A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers. …

The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking StemExpress officials taken at a restaurant in May. It appears to be the first legal action prohibiting the release of a video from the organization. …

In a statement Wednesday, center leader David Daleiden said StemExpress was using “meritless litigation” to cover up an “illegal baby parts trade.” …

StemExpress is a Placerville-based company started in 2010 that provides human tissue, blood and other specimens to researchers. Planned Parenthood is one of the company’s providers of fetal tissue. …

The temporary restraining order issued Tuesday will remain in place until a hearing on Aug. 19.

Since the injunction only applies to StemExpress, another helpful judge may be needed to repress the videos altogether.

Nonetheless, this should help give Planned Parenthood and the federal government, which backs the highly profitable abortion mill with over half a $billion per year of our money, time to find a way to destroy the Center for Medical Progress, and to declare all of the videos illegal. (Obama’s Injustice Department is already working on it.) At the very least the injunction will take some wind out of the story’s sails so that it does not keep escalating until people get angry enough to do something about it.

We live under a tyranny of degenerates who have no problem with the activities depicted in the videos, only with their exposure. They would have no problem harvesting your body parts either, and given sufficient secrecy, might give it a try.

Watch the videos while you still can (see here, here, and here):

As the videos make obvious, Planned Parenthood represents unmitigated evil. It also represents the core of the liberal establishment, which will crush any opposition to it.

Organic Food: Mammoth Scam

Trendy moonbats will be shocked to learn that organic food is a mammoth scam:

Many people who pay the huge premium—often more than a hundred percent—for organic foods do so because they’re afraid of pesticides. If that’s their rationale, they misunderstand the nuances of organic agriculture. Although it’s true that synthetic chemical pesticides are generally prohibited, there is a lengthy list of exceptions listed in the Organic Foods Production Act, while most “natural” ones are permitted. However, “organic” pesticides can be toxic. As evolutionary biologist Christie Wilcox explained in a 2012 Scientific American article (“Are lower pesticide residues a good reason to buy organic? Probably not.”): “Organic pesticides pose the same health risks as non-organic ones.” …

Some consumers think that the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) requires certified organic products to be free of ingredients from “GMOs,” organisms crafted with molecular techniques of genetic engineering. Wrong again. USDA does not require organic products to be GMO-free.

Not that there is anything unhealthy about GMOs anyway.

Even if organic food were somehow better, regular food is often sold as organic.

The organic community, including the International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movements (IFOAM), supports the USDA’s lenient testing protocols and opposes more frequent mandatory testing of organic products for prohibited and excluded substances.

That’s because they don’t want the excessive prices driven up to the point where not even fools will buy organic. Due to the price differential, there is plenty of cheating; the “organic” label has to be taken on faith.

Speaking of trust and faith—or lack thereof—in organic foods, there was the example of holier-than-thou Whole Foods importing large amounts of its supposedly “organic” produce from China, of all places. Those imports even included Whole Foods’ house brand, “California Blend.” (Yes, you read that correctly.)

To conclude:

Organic agriculture is an unscientific, heavily subsidized marketing gimmick that misleads and rips off consumers, both because of the nature of the regulations and cheating.

But so long as moonbats feel smug about buying organic, none of this matters; they are paying for moonbattery, not for better food.
