"Americans and people around the world need to know about Obama," Verastegui continued. "If he is not going to defend the most innocent, then who is he going to defend? If someone is not willing to take a risk for the most innocent, which is babies, what can I expect from that person? He will not defend me. He will not defend you. That's what inspired me to put something together.

He nails it here!

New Terri Dailies theme...

With prospects for Lauren Richardson now favorable and with the upcoming election cycle and the threats to the core of pro-life people and just plain decent Americans, what could be more important than the defeat of these America haters and death lovers? Terri's Legacy has taught us all we cannot rest easy and must persevere against this grim force.

Haleigh Poutre update...

"The Republican" reports on how the proceedings are going, keeps up the pressure...

.....................................

SPRINGFIELD - If Haleigh Poutre is called as a witness in the child abuse case against her stepfather, the media will have access to all proceedings.

A judge Wednesday upheld the rights of all media to have access to the proceedings in the trial of Jason D. Strickland. Hampden Superior Court Judge Judd J. Carhart did indicate, however, that he may ask for "accommodations" to be made in photographing and videotaping her testimony.

Carhart, concurring with the opposition voiced by The Republican, called the freedom of the press and its access to trials part of "the bedrock of this nation." The openness of America's courts "distinguishes this judicial system from courts around the world," he said. 

The state Department of Children and Families had sought to prohibit the press from covering the child's testimony.

The ruling came as the defense lawyer for Strickland said he may include now 14-year-old Haleigh, left brain-injured three years ago, among his witnesses when the case goes to trial Oct. 29.

On the eve of the hearing Tuesday, the prosecution, after consulting with the state agency which now has custody of the child, dropped its plan to have Haleigh testify. And, while some thought it would end the girl's involvement in the case, attorney Alan J. Black told Carhart he was "not prepared at this time" to decide if he will pursue her as a witness. Carhart gave the defense two weeks to make that decision.

The judge said he will reschedule a hearing to determine if Haleigh is competent to testify if Black decides to use her as a witness at trial. If such a hearing occurs, Carhart said he will make sure the media makes accommodations that will be sensitive to the state's concerns for the girl.

Haleigh, who suffered a severe brain injury in September 2005, continues to undergo treatment in a Boston rehabilitation hospital. The judge said it is possible he would hold a hearing there, if medical experts involved in her treatment indicate it is necessary.

Attorney Joseph P. Pessolano, who represented The Republican, told Carhart during Wednesday's hearing that the Strickland case is of interest not only because of the extent of the child abuse alleged but also because of the shadow it cast on the state child protection agency and its response to Haleigh's well-being. "This case is notorious for a lot of reasons,'" he told Carhart.

After the hearing Pessolano said, "This court and this judge in particular are very sensitive to the rights of the press." 

The Boston Globe joined The Republican's in fighting the media ban, but did not send an attorney to the proceedings Wednesday.

Strickland, 34, formerly of Westfield, and his late wife, Holli A. Strickland, Haleigh's adoptive mother, were charged with the abuse in Westfield which left the child comatose with a severe brain injury three years ago.

Holli Strickland was dead within days of her arrest in September 2005, the victim, West Springfield police said, of gunshot wounds in a murder-suicide with her grandmother.

I use the term, projection enough to describe the usual tendency of the far left foist their own failings on their victims. Haters call people they hate haters. So here we have them going after Sarah Palin et al. in the same tune. I am trying to think of a projection more despicable than that of Obamunist calling despicable the lady who survived an abortion and simply pointed out his connection to the industry.

As they vilify the victim, they also vilify Jill Stanek who has seen all their acts up close and simply tells the truth. Also, after reading this kind of stuff, I have an uncontrollable urge to go take a shower and wash the foul clutter of leftist print away.

...................................

Research for this story was supported by the Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute. Until John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate, Obama attack ops -- whether political action committees or their 501(c)4 partners -- were struggling mightily to raise the kind of cash that fueled the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth smear machine in 2004. More than $45 million poured into that effort to sink John Kerry's campaign, mainly from the pockets of wealthy Bush backers. A review of Federal Election Commission (FEC) campaign donations back in June of this year showed that the big Swift Boat donors -- such as Ohio investor Carl H. Lindner and family, Dallas pharmacy magnate Harold C. Simmons, Texas homebuilder Bob Perry and oilman T. Boone Pickens -- were putting their money elsewhere, either pouring it directly into the McCain campaign or sending it off to Republican Congressional races, the Republican Governors Association or Newt Gingrich's PAC, American Solutions. But all that changed when the evangelical pro-life Alaska governor stepped up to the podium in Minneapolis to accept the Republican nomination for vice-president. Overnight the culture warriors, who'd been grumbling about McCain from the sidelines, were back in play. The Council for National Policy, one of the Christian right's most secretive strategy bodies, immediately endorsed the "values"-enhanced McCain ticket, triggering a $10 million infusion of campaign donations from evangelicals and their associates on the hard right. In this volatile race for the White House, they may yet make the difference. Call it the Palin Payoff.

~Snip~

On September 15 Born Alive Truth, a 527 out of Mokena, Illinois, launched a $338,000 TV ad blitz in Ohio and New Mexico tarring Obama as a supporter of infanticide. The 30-second ad featured a Nashville abortion survivor, Gianna Jessen. Born Alive Truth is fronted by former nurse and Christian right player Jill Stanek. Stanek, a one-time operator with Concerned Women for America, advocates against "partial birth" abortion and fought access to Plan B, the emergency contraception pill, by saying it would become a tool of "rapists and male sexual predators." Now a columnist for the ultra-right website WorldNetDaily. Stanek is known for repeating bogus claims that the Chinese dine on human fetuses and that Terri Schiavo was fully cognizant at the time her feeding tube was removed. In one classic column, Stanek equated Parkinson's victim Michael J. Fox with Hitler for his support of embryonic stem-cell research:..............

Salvation has a thread on the "Catholic" governor of Oregon...

..........................................

SALEM -- Archbishop John Vlazny is criticizing Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski, a Catholic, for playing host to an abortion rights fundraiser Friday night in Portland.

Vlazny, head of the Archdiocese of Portland, said it's an embarrassment and a scandal for Catholics that Kulongoski is hosting the event two days before the church conducts its annual "Respect Life" mass in Portland to show opposition to abortion.

"For a Catholic governor to host an event of this sort seems a deliberate dissent from the teachings of the church," Vlazny said in a statement today.

Kulongoski is a longtime supporter of a woman's right to choose an abortion.................

SACRAMENTO – California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially approved an assisted suicide measure allowing nurses to sedate, dehydrate and starve depressed or confused individuals they consider to be "terminally ill."

The bill, sponsored by Assemblywoman Patty Berg, a Democrat, passed the California Assembly Aug. 28, and the state Senate Aug. 20. It was signed by the governor yesterday.

The legislation, called the "Terminal Patients' Right to Know End of Life Options Act," or AB 2747, passed by a 42 to 34 vote. An Aug. 20 Senate vote of 21 to 17 ushered the measure to the governor's desk for signing.

Randy Thomasson, chief of the Campaign for Children and Families, said the legislation is dangerous and should have been vetoed by Gov. Schwarzenegger............

From the Dakota Voice, a good summary...

.....................................

From Reuters comes word that former St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke, who now leads the Vatican’s Supreme Court of the Apostolic Signature, didn't pull his punches when he recently described the Democrat Party as a "party of death" recently.

According to the Reuters piece, in June he told the Italian Catholic newspaper Avvenire that the DNC

risked “transforming itself definitively into a party of death for its decisions on bioethical issues.” He then attacked two of the party’s most high profile Catholics — vice presidential candidate Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — for misrepresenting Church teaching on abortion.

He said Biden and Pelosi, “while presenting themselves as good Catholics, have presented Church doctrine on abortion in a false and tendentious way.”

How true!

The only disagreement I have with Archbishop Burke's statement--and I don't know if this was paraphrased by Reuters or Avvenire, or if Burke actually used the word--would be that "risked" is obsolete. The Democrat Party already has transformed itself into a party of death.

The DNC embraces a position of hostility toward children that elevates contraception almost to the level of a sacrament. In other words, their public policy advocacy is, in practice, hostile toward the creation of new life.

The DNC embraces abortion on demand for no other reason than "I don't want it." This has resulted in the deaths of nearly 50 million children in the past 35 years...and the DNC vociferously and relentlessly fights to maintain that right to kill every unborn child possible in perpetuity. As a party, they embrace even the totally barbaric "partial birth abortion"...and the banner-carrier of their party, Barack Obama, even defended infanticide.

The DNC officially promotes embryonic stem cell research which destroys human life, while ignoring the dozens of successes of adult stem cell research which does not destroy human life.

The DNC embraces euthanasia and the killing of the weak, disabled and old. Their vociferous defense of the murder of Terri Schiavo a few years ago stands as the most shameful example of their embrace of death...for others, that is.

The DNC also embraces homosexuality in all it's forms and manifestations. Homosexuality is a practice which by its very nature can never result in the creation of life--even when both sets of reproductive organs involved function perfectly. And by normalizing, encouraging and even celebrating a practice which is characterized by much greater risk of AIDS, STDs, depression, substance abuse and suicide, the DNC is encouraging even more death.

Some folks act like they don't know the difference between the value of life and death, even though it was clearly laid out more than 3,000 years ago.

The Democrats risk becoming the party of death? I'd say that ship already sailed a long time ago...

Alternatively, he may be concerned that the exodus from California may expand as more deathbots head to Oregon and Washington where death is openly embraced (or it will be in Washington after election day).

Lauren Richardson and this!

As Joe wonders what hit him from one side, he need merely look over his shoulder and see round two bracketing him in the Great State of Delaware. I hope Lauren is able to smile at this one. We closed our thread on Lauren since she has now come out of danger.

Christine O'Donnell is running for election against Sen. Joseph Biden.

In his debate with Gov. Sarah Palin on Thursday, Joe Biden told the American public that “all you have to do is go down Union Street with me in Wilmington, or go to Katie’s Restaurant” to get a sense of how people feel about the economy.

But Christine O’Donnell has some news she’d like to tell Biden: Katie’s Restaurant has been closed for a while.

It’s unlikely, however, that O’Donnell will get the opportunity to inform him. As the woman running against Biden, the one competing against him in his largely overlooked Senate reelection bid in Delaware, she’s still waiting for her chance to stand on stage with him.

~Snip~

O’Donnell has, however, made enough noise to gain notice from Haley Barbour, the governor of Mississippi and former chairman of the Republican National Committee, who has endorsed her, along with astronaut Buzz Aldrin and David Horowitz, the 1960s radical turned conservative activist. Preceding O'Donnell's career in elected politics was a career in conservative-issue advocacy and a stint at the RNC.

Before this election got under way, O’Donnell was doing advocacy work on a Terri Schiavo-like right-to-life case in Delaware, involving a 23-year-old woman named Lauren Richardson....................

"Just spending our days together was one of the things that have been really missing from my life, the experience of serving somebody else and having them serve you. I found I enjoy being in a partnership, part of a team, as a unit," she says.


While she calls Armstrong the inspiration of "Wildflower,"the disc is not the sunny, dreamy album one might expect from someone reveling in a new love.

"Even though the record feels like a bunch of love songs, most of those records are based on the conversations that Lance and I would have about religion, and Terri Schiavo and about our government. They're based on how we felt about what kind of world we felt we were leaving his children," she says of the divorced father of three.

Few of the songs on the album are radio friendly, and Crow is unsure if "Wildflower" will meet the success of her previous discs.........

Crow finds life, love beyond work

Sarah Palin "gets it". So do we.

Thread by wagglebee.

................................

Sarah Palin gets it. That's why she and husband Todd chose not to abort baby Trig in spite of his alleged imperfections. To some, he is a "useless eater." He will never win the snow machine race his father is famous for or be mayor or governor of anything, but Sarah and Todd know the value of his life in ways that can never be explained to a man like Barack Obama. A baby like Trig is a precious life. And the baby carried by his sister is not punishment....

An explanation of why so many hate Sarah Palin and the stand she embraces...

Thread by Brookhaven, with thanks to Coleus and narses for the pings.

........................................

The very personal and often uncharitable criticism of Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin and her family evident in recent media coverage, and the lack of support from many feminist and child advocacy groups, may have a relationship to the collective grief, pain and guilt from personal involvement in the abortion of an unborn child.

When an issue strikes at a deeply repressed sensitive wound in a person, often the initial reaction is anger...

In an article published last year on CBC News, Mallick railed against the Vatican's refusal to support abortion for African women, saying the Church has "no pity" for African women whom the Church thinks "don't matter as much as a clump of cells." Therefore, Mallick says, Catholics choosing to disobey the Church are "inevitable" and more rational than Church officials, whom she called "folks who don't get out much."............

Wagglebee has a good discussion thread on this topic...

.......................................

The prelate clarifies: "This reasoning is sound only if other issues carry the same moral weight as abortion does, such as in the case of euthanasia and destruction of embryos for research purposes. Health care, education, economic security, immigration and taxes are very important concerns. […] However, the solutions to problems in these areas do not usually involve a rejection of the sanctity of human life in the way that abortion does."

As proof of the point, Bishop Martino said, "Consider this: The finest health and education systems, the fairest immigration laws and the soundest economy do nothing for the child who never sees the light of day. It is a tragic irony that 'pro-choice' candidates have come to support homicide -- the gravest injustice a society can tolerate -- in the name of 'social justice.'"..........

“But Christine O’Donnell has some news she’d like to tell Biden: Katie’s Restaurant has been closed for a while.”

That is absolutely PRICELESS, and the fact that O’Donnell was working on helping Lauren Richardson makes it truly beautiful.

But Waite, there's more. FV, on most accounts she looks just fine, except that she somehow got the situation with Terri bass ackwards.

............................

Just days before the Aug. 26 primaries, her husband of 30 years, Harvey Waite, died after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

~Snip~

"I am not a rabid Republican who never deviates from party philosophy, and that is why I get independents voting for me ... because I am voting for what has to be done," she said in August.

She broke with the Bush administration on the Terri Schiavo case, saying the removal of feeding tubes was a decision to be made by the family not the federal government.

She broke ranks with her party to support a minimum wage increase and other issues. She still has an 88 percent voting record by the American Conservative Union....

Our friends and neighbors up north face the same grim adversary as we do. Thanks, FV, for the tip. It comes at a time when the Saint Andreas fault inter alia may split off the entire left coast into an island of death. From Arnold living out his role as Terminator in Kalifornia to the northern tips of Washington State, people are dying to make it a reality. If the election cycle runs wrong, they will get plenty of help from the Obamunists and add obamacide to their bag of tricks. Mercifully Halloween ends before voting day.

Speaking of "obamacide," this creature from the dark recesses of death loving adds amplified meaning to the word, "infanticide." And, recall, he publicly called a survivor of an abortion despicable. Presumably the poor person had a duty to die under the watch of his new crews of brownshirts. Gee, do I sound like I don't like BO?

Thread by wagglebee.

........................................

Such is the case with the issue of Barack Obama's position on legal protections for infants while an Illinois state senator. In a nutshell, the controversy comes down to a claim from Senator Obama that he would have favored the bill in the U.S. Senate that he opposed while he was an Illinois state senator. More specifically, at issue is the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA), which gave "human" legal status to infants born alive accidentally following an abortion. The federal version of the bill passed the U.S. Congress easily, with abortion-rights supporters like Hillary Clinton in the Senate and Jerald Nadler in the House voting in favor. After Obama left the Illinois Senate to run for the U.S. Senate, the Illinois version of the bill flew through that body 52-0. The bill, both the federal and state version, passed unanimously in the U.S. Senate and Illinois Senate, both in Obama's absence........

Following on to the upthread post on the left coast, is a report from Washington State before it gets St. Helened again. To the death loving lefties, "Death with Dignity" means this:

George Felos saw beauty in such horror as Terri Schiavo suffered the prolonged and painful "death with dignity". Thread by wagglebee.

.............................

The "death with dignity" measure, Initiative 1000, sets up a way for a terminally ill person to order a lethal dose of drugs. Make no mistake: This is assisted suicide. It is a grim decision, and many may think it a wrong one, but we believe it should be the right of the terminally ill to decide for themselves....

In this thread by markomalley, we see how profound can be the effect of an election cycle gone bad. Underwhelmed as I was at the prospect of a feeble McCain facing this menace, the light got much brighter with the unintended consequence of Sarah Palin emerging. Yet the menace looms and as the mask peels back each day, we see this greatest of threats to our America growing with support of an insane wad of media jumping up and down in glee, praying for the downfall of the country they hate.

If we really think we could keep this incipient dictator in check, we would lose at the first instance in the appointments to the Supremes. Thanks, narses, for the ping.

Again on the Supremes... a thread by Daffynition, with thanks to narses for the ping.

..........................

WASHINGTON — The next president will tip the courts, one way or another. Supreme Court openings are all but guaranteed, and that's just the start: 44 trial and appellate federal judicial vacancies already await filling. There will be more.

Consider this: President Bush has placed 316 judges on the bench during his two terms. One out of three federal judges now owes a lifetime-tenured job to the current president. Whoever replaces Bush will be likewise recasting courthouses, top to bottom.

"The proper role of the judiciary has become one of the defining issues of this presidential election," Republican presidential candidate John McCain said in May. "It will fall to the next president to nominate hundreds — hundreds — of qualified men and women to the federal courts, and the choices we make will reach far, far into the future."

In truth, many polls suggest, relatively few voters consider the federal judiciary a defining issue. But those who do care, care a lot.......

Next president will reshape U.S. courts from top to bottom
