  • Overflowing Banks: In Obama Ad, Actress Offers Tampon TMI, But Can't Say the Word 'Abortion'?

    NewsBusters.org ^ | August 12, 2012 | Tim Graham
    Actress Elizabeth Banks made a campaign video for Obama-Biden 2012 – just barely. Almost the entire 75 seconds is a defense of Planned Parenthood and their “essential services,” which is the euphemism feminists use to describe America’s leading provider of abortions. In fact, Banks could not bring herself to even mention the word or the concept of abortions, except indirectly as “that little five percent” of controversial things PPFA does that judgmental Mitt Romney dislikes. This is quite shocking in its discretion, considering Banks unloads TMI and talks about her massive menstrual flow: Elizabeth Banks on Planned Parenthood, Women's Health,...

    U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is currently polling at just 1% nationally among the Democrats running for president, although she fares better in Iowa and New Hampshire. Who exactly are her supporters? According to the opinion poll analyses website FiveThirtyEight, the Hawaii Democrats support is predominantly male (her support among women is practically nonexistent) and likely to fall outside of traditional Democratic circles.

    Pro-Life Legislator Defeated Pro-Abortion Candidate Alec Baldwin Backed Thanks to Pro-Life Groups Help The political models of large television, radio and direct mail buys that have dominated so much of political life and the tactics of the consultant classes dont work well for the generation of voters coming of age. And for those interested in sharing a political message, perhaps the best news of all is that changes in tactics can be extremely cost effective, at least until biased social media platforms block free speech. Launched this year, Students for Life Action engaged in the Virginia election using a volunteer...

    Beginning next year, Chick-fil-A will move away from its current philanthropic structure, Bisnow has learned. After donating to more than 300 charitable organizations this year, the Atlanta-based fast-food chain will instead focus on three initiatives with one accompanying charity each: education, homelessness and hunger. Theres no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are, Chick-fil-A President and Chief Operating Officer Tim Tassopoulos said in an interview with Bisnow. There are lots of articles and newscasts about Chick-fil-A, and we thought we needed to be clear about our message. The...

    A popular song once told us that One is the loneliest number that theres ever been. And thats the case for Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards. Edwards is the only Democrat governor in the nation who is pro-life on abortion. He one of just a handful of pro-life Democrats elected at any major federal or statewide level a reminder that most pro-life Democrats have become Republicans as the Democrat Party has drifted further left and become ubiquitously pro-abortion. Edwards beat pro-life Republican businessman Eddie Rispone 51.3% to 48.7% over the weekend. national pundits tried to use the victory as...

    Talk about missing the forest for the trees! The Ohio Nurses Association [ONA], a union with 11,000 members, has endorsed legalizing assisted suicide. From the Cincinnati Enquirer story: ONA President Deborah Arms said the proposal recommends “educating the public about medical aid in dying, supporting legislation to protect the rights of dying patients to control the circumstances and conditions of their death and providing resources and education to nurses about the nurse’s role in caring for patients regarding MAID [Medical Assistance in Dying] or any form of treatment limitation.” Meanwhile, in other news: Ohio is in the midst of a...

    Rugby player Israel Folau has drawn anger for linking Australia's bushfire crisis to the nation's same-sex marriage and abortion laws. Folau, who was sacked by Australia in May for making anti-gay remarks on social media, described the fires as a "little taste of God's judgement". Six people have died since last month in blazes raging in eastern Australia. Prime Minister Scott Morrison condemned Folau's remarks as "appallingly insensitive". "He is a free citizen, he can say whatever he likes but that doesn't mean he can't have regard to the grievance [and] offence this would have caused to the people whose...

    **SNIP** Although none of the Democratic candidates explicitly rebuked Mr Obama's comments, Mr Sanders mounted the strongest defence of his policy platform. Answering questions on a forum aired by Univision , a Spanish-language TV network, he was asked whether Mr Obama was "right" to say voters didn't want systemic change. Mr Sanders, who describes himself as a democratic socialist and progressive, laughed and said: "Well, it depends on what you mean by tear down the system." "The agenda that we have is an agenda supported by the vast majority of working people," he said. "When I talk about raising the...

    On my Sunday TV program Full Measure, Ive done quite a bit of reporting on the capricious cost of medical services at hospitals and how hard it is to get pricing upfront. President Trump just instituted a new rule requiring hospitals to make that information available. This could be a game changer. As I reported the prices hospitals charge vary widely and often do not seem to correlate to anything in particular. Insurance and private payers may be radically overcharged. From my story comparing prices: One hospital in the Los Angeles area charged $400 for the knee MRI. But a...

    Undercover journalist David Daleiden faced a major setback today in San Franciscos U.S. District Court after a jury handed down a multi-million dollar (over $2.2 million) verdict under the federal Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations (RICO) law, among others, in favor of abortion giant Planned Parenthood. The Thomas More Society has defended Daleiden against Planned Parenthood since the multibillion-dollar abortion provider sued him for exposing the corporations role in alleged illegal baby body parts trafficking. The lawsuit was brought by Planned Parenthood Federation of America and ten of its abortion affiliates after Daleidens 2015 release of a series of investigative videos...

    A group of conservative lawmakers in Ohio has introduced a bill to outlaw abortion outright except to save the pregnant womans life. State Rep. Candice Keller, a Republican from Middletown, says the bills backers are tired of taking an incremental approach to ending abortion. The time for regulating evil and compromise is over, she said in a statement. The time has come to abolish abortion in its entirety and recognize that each individual has the inviolable and inalienable Right to Life. The legislation, introduced Thursday, declares a fetus a person and would subject doctors who terminate pregnancies to potential murder...

    On Friday, it took two major steps toward transparency in pricing and options. Patients will now better understand what their choices and costs will be. The president and his team deserve credit for their efforts.. Specifically, the administration formally proposed one new rule (not yet final in the administrative process) and finalized another...... The first, the Transparency in Coverage rule, would require health plans to provide real-time, online information including an estimate of their cost-sharing liability for all covered healthcare items and services in order to empower consumers to shop and compare costs between specific providers before receiving care.

    Sen. Bernard Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday are introducing legislation that calls for a guaranteed right to housing and would put up to $180 billion over 10 years toward retrofitting and cutting carbon emissions in federal public housing. The legislation would amend federal law to say its the policy of the U.S. to use federal funds and the credit of the country to guarantee the right to housing for every individual - an expansive view of government reach reflected in their Green New Deal to combat climate change. The bill provides money for solar panels and renewable energy...

    WASHINGTON Senator Elizabeth Warren vowed on Friday to pass major health care legislation in her first 100 days as president, unveiling a new, detailed plan to significantly expand public health insurance coverage as a first step, and promising to pass a Medicare for all system by the end of her third year in office that would cover all Americans. The initial bill she would seek to pass if elected would be a step short of the broader Medicare for all plan she has championed. But it would substantially expand the reach and generosity of public health insurance, creating a...

    New rules from the Trump administration on Friday would require insurers and hospitals to disclose upfront the actual prices for common tests and procedures to promote competition and push down costs. The sweeping changes face stiff pushback from the health care industry and could be challenged in court. Even in an ideal world where information flows freely, patients and their families would have to deal with a learning curve to become comfortable with the intricacies of health care billing. This shadowy system has to change, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said. The patient has to be in control....

On Wednesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out Pelosis hypocrisy by slamming her for following the church of partial-birth abortion, the Daily Caller reports. Carlson showed a clip of Pelosis statement about the impeachment...
