New Report has Some Potential Bad News for Planned Parenthood

Hope this happens soon!

Published

According to new reports, the Trump administration has found a way to cut some of the taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider, something that’s likely making the organization sweat.

An official from the administration recently spoke with The Weekly Standard and stated that they will be pushing a rule that will prevent $260 million a year in Title X funds that are marked for contraception and “other family planning” initiatives from landing in the wallets of abortion providers.

This is absolutely something that needs to be done as soon as possible.

“The proposal would require a bright line of physical as well as financial separation between Title X programs and any program (or facility) where abortion is performed, supported, or referred for as a method of family planning,” an administration official told the Weekly Standard.

Title X explicitly states that “none of the funds appropriated under this title shall be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” However, as the Weekly Standard points out, since Title X was first enacted in 1970, the law has been interpreted to “allow Title X programs to refer patients for abortions, be co-located with abortion clinics, and lobby for pro-abortion policies — so long as federal dollars did not directly fund abortions.”

The Reagan administration attempted to reestablish the separation between Title X programs and abortion providers in 1988, but the new regulation was challeged in court. While the Supreme Court eventually held up the regulation in a 5-4 ruling, it was never enforced. When Bill Clinton won the presidency, he killed the regulation and no succeeding administration has reinstated it. The Trump administration appears poised to do just that.

“Unlike the Reagan regulation, the proposal will not prohibit counseling for clients about abortion, but neither will it include the current, potentially illegal mandate that projects must counsel and refer for abortion,” the administration official told the Weekly Standard. “This proposal does not necessarily defund Planned Parenthood, as long as they’re willing to disentangle taxpayer funds from abortion as a method of family planning, which is required by the Title X law. Any grantees that perform, support, or refer for abortion have a choice – disentangle themselves from abortion or fund their activities with privately raised funds.”

Planned Parenthood is a disgusting organization that not only profits off the murder of the unborn, but also off their dismemberment, selling body parts of dead children to make a quick buck.

There’s no way a group like this, who provides services that many Americans find repulsive, should be funded with taxpayer dollars without consent. Since you can’t really make a system where taxpayers choose how their money is being spent, then this organization simply shouldn’t be funded by tax money at all.

Let’s hope this measure gets implemented soon.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
