    The two Democratic contenders for the Party's 2016 presidential nomination fended off the possibility that states should have any leeway in limiting abortions carried out within their borders. In a statement eerily similar to the Supreme Court's 1857 Dred Scott decision, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton argued that "fetuses are creatures of an inferior order. They are not persons under the law or Constitution. Consequently, the imputation of their imaginary so-called right to life cannot displace the very real right of the mother to the liberty to not be encumbered with the burdens of pregnancy and child care that...

    The enormous arena was empty, save for the seesaws and the dozens of condemned criminals who sat naked upon them, hands tied behind their backs. Unfamiliar with the recently invented contraptions known as petaurua, the men tested the seesaws uneasily. One criminal would push off the ground and suddenly find himself 15 feet in the air while his partner on the other side of the seesaw descended swiftly to the ground. How strange. In the stands, tens of thousands of Roman citizens waited with half-bored curiosity to see what would happen next and whether it would be interesting enough to...

    In the midst of a series of covertly obtained and publicly released videos of Planned Parenthood’s murder of human babies and sale of their organs, President Obama has come out strongly against the practice of killing albinos and selling their organs in Africa, telling a group of African leaders “this cruel tradition has got to stop.” Meanwhile, the “cruel tradition” practiced by Planned Parenthood still escapes notice at the White House. Press Secretary Josh Earnest has explained that “the President refuses to watch the defamatory videos being peddled by the Center for Medical Progress” and “saw no contradiction between his...

    Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Dan Ashe announced that his agency has opened an investigation of the "tragic killing" of Cecil the lion by American dentist Walter Palmer. Cecil was a major attraction at the Hwange National Park in Matabeleland North, Zimbabwe. Palmer reportedly paid some locals $50,000 to lure the lion outside the park. Palmer then killed the lion with an arrow. Ashe characterized the killing as "a senseless act of cruelty against an innocent animal. It has shocked the world in a way that no other act has in recent memory. It is imperative that...

    In Kansas, Shawnee County District Court Judge Larry Hendricks issued an order blocking that state’s ban on abortions carried out by tearing the baby limb-from-limb while still in the womb. The Judge’s order came in response to a lawsuit filed by the New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights on behalf of Dr. Herbert Hodes and Dr. Traci Nauser—a father-daughter team of abortionists. “To allow this law to go into effect while the matter is being litigated would deprive the plaintiffs of their livelihood,” Hendricks said. “It would inflict irreparable harm and injury to their recognized right to ply their trade.”...

    The ACLU has filed suit alleging that an Arizona law that bars sex-selective and race-based abortions is racist. The suit was filed on behalf of the NAACP and the National Asian-Pacific American Women’s Forum. Alexa Kolbi-Molinas of the ACLU insisted that “this law has a racially disparate effect as its intent. African-Americans are nearly four times as likely to opt for abortion as the end point of a pregnancy compared to whites. Consequently, the Arizona law has a chilling impact on what should be a freely taken choice.” “The barrier to sex-selective abortions introduces a culturally insensitive affront to persons...

    Details on how Dr. Kermit Gosnell dispatched babies who survived late term abortions by “snipping their spinal cords” are as grisly as any contemporary “slasher film.” Unfortunately, the practice of disposing of such survivors by abortionists is not unusual. Dr. Cesare Santangelo of Washington, D.C. was caught in an undercover video reassuring a prospective abortion procurer that “even if the fetus comes out alive we would not help it.” At Dr. Emily Women’s Health Center in New York City abortion survivors are drowned in “jars of solutions.” National Abortion Federation President Vicki Saporta says “Gosnell’s main problem is his own...

(c) House Republicans have twice passed legislation to avoid the sequester cuts with carefully targeted ones, but Senate Democrats refused to act.

    A GANG of children have been caught trying to roast two puppies over an open fire. Shocked and huddled together for safety, the puppies were rescued from an act of almost unbelievable barbarity on a canal bank near Manchester in England. A gang of youths had seized the seven-week-old brother and sister puppies and were slowly roasting them over a bonfire. Yelping in panic and distress as their fur began to burn, the pair struggled desperately to escape the children's clutches. The commotion attracted a walker who ran over to the bonfire and ordered the gang to release them immediately.

    OFF TO THE DEATH CAMPS We already knew the Chinese government were a bunch of freedom denying, liberty hating, collectivist scumbag Communist sons of bitches. But it is still shocking to realize how deep their cruelty truly goes. For years, the Chinese government turned a blind eye to the infanticide of female children – a direct result of the forced “one child per family” (OCPF) that the benighted savages in Beijing forced upon the populace. A sample of “scientific socialism” at work: The one-child policy is criticized as violating basic human rights. Many are concerned with the practices used to...

    ATLANTA -- A group has scheduled a news conference today to call for support for Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.

The 27-year-old Vick has pleaded not guilty to charges of sponsoring a dogfighting operation. Yesterday about...

    With the recent charges that a major National Football League player had allowed cruel dog fights on his home property, the issue of cruelty to animals has been brought to national attention. Nearly everyone acknowledges the obvious -- that a person who is cruel to animals, who enjoys sees seeing an animal suffer, is likely to inflict suffering on human beings. Cruelty to animals is one of the very few predictors among children of later criminal behavior. So, aside from altruistic concern for animals, we human beings also have a selfish concern about people who enjoy making animals suffer. People...

    In the emergency room at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital, Edith Isabel Rodriguez was seen as a complainer. "Thanks a lot, officers," an emergency room nurse told Los Angeles County police who brought in Rodriguez early May 9 after finding her in front of the Willowbrook hospital yelling for help. "This is her third time here." The 43-year-old mother of three had been released from the emergency room hours earlier, her third visit in three days for abdominal pain. She'd been given prescription medication and a doctor's appointment. Turning to Rodriguez, the nurse said, "You have already been seen, and...

    The Iditarod Trail Committee wants an independent investigation to examine reported dog abuse by Healy musher Ramy Brooks during this year's Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Three days after completing the 1,100-mile race from Anchorage to Nome at mid-month, Brooks was disqualified after confessing to having spanked some of his dogs with a piece of trail-marking lathe after they balked in the village of Golovin on the Bering Sea Coast. A Golovin schoolteacher later told the Daily News that Brooks' actions went far beyond that. Over the course of 15 to 20 minutes, she said, he periodically beat and kicked...

    After more than 60 years of silence, World War II's most enduring and horrible secret is being nudged into the light of day. One by one the participants, white-haired and mildmannered, line up to tell their dreadful stories before they die. Akira Makino is a frail widower living near Osaka in Japan. His only unusual habit is to regularly visit an obscure little town in the southern Philippines, where he gives clothes to poor children and has set up war memorials. Mr Makino was stationed there during the war. What he never told anybody, including his wife, was that during...
