    Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) Co-Chairs Reps. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-AZ) and Keith Ellison (D-MN) and CPC Whip Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) voted against the Nutrition Reform and Work Opportunity Act of 2013, H.R. 3102, a Republican bill to drastically cut nutrition programs. .... “Some of my Republican colleagues want to cut food assistance for needy families instead of closing business tax loopholes as a way to save money,” said Rep. Grijalva. “There's a basic question of fairness and who our country looks out for here. If you think more corporate tax cuts are the answer, go ahead and say so,...

But at least the House Minority Leader is being helpful enough to give reporters instructions about how to explain her past working relationship with Filner: Don’t: Democrats who accused Republicans of being anti-women during last year’s campaign are strangely silent now that one of their own — San Diego Mayor Bob Filner — is accused of groping and sexually assaulting women. “Don’t identify him as my former colleague,” an agitated House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi reportedly said Thursday night when asked about the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., May 21, 2013 (LifeSiteNews) – Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) has introduced a bill aimed at marginalizing Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs), which serve women facing unexpected pregnancies with counseling and factual information about parenthood, adoption and abortion. CPCs also offer practical support for women who choose to parent, such as baby equipment, formula, diapers and clothing. H.R. 2030, which Maloney named the “Stop Deceptive Advertising for Women's Services Act,” orders the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to create regulations restricting CPCs’ advertising practices. The wording of the bill is minimal, leaving the details to be hammered out by the bureaucracy...

    Beijing: China's new Communist Party leader Xi Jinping has warned cadres of a Soviet-style collapse if the party is confronted with ideological dissent, military disloyalty and corruption, the deadly mix that led to the dramatic disintegration of once mighty Soviet Union. China must heed the still "deeply profound" lessons of the former Soviet Union, where political rot, ideological heresy and military disloyalty brought down the governing party, Xi, 59, reportedly told party leaders during his tour of Guangdong province in December last year soon after his election as the General Secretary of the ruling party a month before. "Why did...

    The Obama campaign apparently is being run by a humor-deficient would-be Jon Stewart: On Tuesday, it launched an ill-advised attempt at snark in an advertisement featuring Big Bird. How bad was the ad? Even the yellow fellow himself was embarrassed, and Sesame Workshop, the multimillion-dollar enterprise with the $1 million–a–year president behind Sesame Street, asked that the ad be taken down. Even President Obama’s amen corner in the media was aghast: ABC News’ Terry Moran pronounced it the work of a campaign “in panic mode.” Somebody should remind Barack Obama that he is, for the moment, president of the United...

    Congressman Allen West is being hammered for his comments alleging that certain Democratic members of Congress are communists. It's the kind of accusation (West is not backing down) that sets liberals seething in rage. An even worse sin was that West dared to quantify his accusation, attaching a number to the alleged Reds. He said there are "78 to 81" Congressional Democrats who are communists. Naturally, all of this is a huge no-no, reflexively sending liberals into fits and shouts of "McCarthyism!" I want to say three things relating to West's remarks: First, some criticism of West's critics. Second, a...

America is under attack from Communists (with both a large and small "c") and Jihadists.These two threats to America (by violent means if necessary) have philosophical differences, but they are bound together by an identical...

I don’t subscribe to the “Yeah, sure, but what about this!” game some play to expose leftist hypocrisy. A crime is a crime, regardless of the skin tone of the victims or the perps. This is about how progressives continue to exploit race to keep us divided as a people and to manipulate voters. This is about...

    Many China watchers were stunned by the announcement of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee on March 15 that prominent Party leader Bo Xilai had been removed from his post. For the past several years, Bo Xilai was a rising star in Communist China’s firmament. Many western observers have speculated that he would one day be China’s “paramount leader.” As Party Secretary governing Chongqing (formerly Chungking), a sprawling megalopolis of 30 million people, Bo appeared to be on the way up. He was a member of the national 24-member governing Politburo and was expected by many to be...

They will keep the political pressure on Obama to pursue a far-left agenda, with the implied threat that if he doesn’t comply, he will have a 2012 presidential primary election challenger. The progressives know Obama’s secrets, having backed him since he joined with them in the Chicago New Party, a means by which they moved the Democratic Party to the left.

The largest demographic of women considering abortions is between the ages of 16 and 24, a group that will turn first to the internet for information before opening the yellow pages or responding to billboards on the highway. And when it comes to a matter as private as pregnancy and abortion, women are even more likely to...

Centers that do not comply would be fined $500 per day. In an Oct. 16 letter to Rawlings-Blake, Archbishop Edwin F.

These seemingly unrelated happenings turned history toward socialism. 1. Karl Marx died on March 14, 1883, and was buried in Highgate Cemetery in London, England. The assumption that Communism died with him was logical since only six people attended his funeral. But the truth is that it had...

    -SNIP- The increasing use of ultrasound exams at crisis pregnancy centers brings criticism from clinics that provide abortion. They see its use as manipulating pregnant women. Eve Espey, obstetrician/gynecologist at University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, said CPCs are looking at legislation to force women to view an ultrasound before having an abortion.

    The dark secret is that seventeen states have, or are considering, ultrasound legislation. The darkest part is that this ultrasound allows women to physically view their babies prior to a possible abortion. Hideously, South Carolina could be the first state to make the viewing mandatory, making women view another life in their bodies before they kill it. Who could possibly require such a thing? But this information is not surprising. We learn that more and more Crisis Pregnancy Centers now have ultrasound equipment that allows women intending to abort, to see exactly what is to be aborted. Some ultrasounds actually...
  • Anti-abortion activists woo blacks: 'Crisis pregnancy' groups move to inner cities

    Anti-abortion activists are reaching aggressively to draw more blacks into their movement, targeting urban communities they long have considered hostile turf. They are opening crisis pregnancy centers in minority neighborhoods, establishing partnerships with black pastors and distributing leaflets that raise suspicion about Planned Parenthood, a longtime provider of reproductive health care and abortions . Framing their cause as the new frontier in civil rights - an effort to stop "black genocide" - these activists have turned to revered names in black history. A niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s is touring the nation, speaking out against "the war...

    Is this the real Stephen Harper? After watching Stephen Harper in office -- sticking to some positions, flipping on others -- pundits and politicians are divided over whether he would rule differently with a majority. Andrew Mayeda mines the prime minister's past for clues to his future Andrew Mayeda, The Ottawa Citizen Published: Sunday, April 22, 2007 In the summer of 2001, a bookish, somewhat temperamental economist rose before an audience of plumbing-equipment manufacturers at a P.E.I. hotel and talked about how Canada had lost its way. The Liberal government, he argued, was soft, bloated and hopelessly ill-equipped to...

    Janeen Daniels was on her way into a Chicago clinic for an abortion when a couple approached and suggested she had other options. She accompanied them to a "crisis pregnancy center," where she was given a referral for an ultrasound exam of her uterus and the promise of help if she decided to carry her pregnancy to term. "Once I saw the ultrasound pictures -- he was 10 weeks old, moving already -- I decided to keep him," said Daniels, 29. The child, Steven, is now 3, and Daniels can't imagine life without him. To her the pregnancy center was...

    Why are newspapers all over the country suddenly publishing articles about how Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) are supposedly using "false" information to try to change the minds of pregnant women about abortion? Mere coincidence? Not likely. The Abortion Establishment's campaign against CPCs (also known as "pregnancy care centers") is an old one. But as the number of CPCs has grown, as some centers have begun to receive modest federal funding, and as the Movement has grown far more effective in getting the truth about abortion's risks and realities into the hands of pregnant women, the attack has intensified. In the...

    In Fonda’s Footsteps: Murtha, Kucinich, and the Antiwar Movement’s Economic WarBy Fedora There is only one way to end this war. Cut off the funds. --Dennis Kucinich, November 15, 2006 When John Murtha recently announced legislative plans to cut off funding for US troop deployment in Iraq, he was following the same game plan Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden had used three decades earlier in Vietnam. The descent of this antiwar strategy can be traced from Fonda and Hayden to Murtha through an antiwar lobby that dates from the Vietnam War and has been spearheaded through the current war by...

    Three times (so far), a promo has run during the Rush Limbaugh Show on the local affiliate in the Washington, DC area, WMAL (which is owned by ABC). The promo advertises a special "undercover" news report by the local ABC TV affiliate, ABC 7. The promo starts by telling of a woman who sought an abortion, and in the process of seeking one, was "duped" into not having one. The rest of the promo features clips of two women who say that a "new tactic" of "anti-abortion" activists are "misleading" "vulnerable" pregnant women, and that these activities should be "against...

    George McGovern, the former senator and Democratic presidential candidate, said Thursday that he will meet with more than 60 members of Congress next week to recommend a strategy to remove U.S. troops from Iraq by June. If Democrats don't take steps to end the war in Iraq soon, they won't be in power very long, McGovern told reporters before a speech at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. "I think the Democratic leadership is wise enough to know that if they're going to follow the message that election sent, they're going to have to take steps to bring the war to a...

    Jennifer Hernandez walked in still unsure how the rest of her life would unfold. At age 19, would she give up college to raise her baby? Or would she abort, the ultimatum her boyfriend made. Hernandez, of Sunrise, left Hope Pregnancy Centers knowing what she would do. "It was the biggest decision I have ever made," said Hernandez, now 31. "In retrospect, I would do it all over again." Like most women counseled at the local crisis pregnancy centers, Hernandez decided to keep her son. There's no mistaking how the Hope Pregnancy Centers -- like the estimated 4,000 centers across...
