  • $13,799,501 Federal Contract Requires UC San Francisco to Obtain Aborted-Baby Parts to Humanize Mice

    CNSNews ^ | October 17, 2018 | Terence P. Jeffrey
    This NIH contract was originally signed with UCSF for a one-year period starting on Dec. 6, 2013 with the government retaining the option to renew the contract for up to six additional one-year periods running through Dec. 5, 2020. The next renewal deadline is Dec. 5 of this year. The contract--using federal tax dollars--creates a demand for organs taken from late-term aborted babies and its fulfillment is dependent on the continued legality of late-term abortions.

    Federalist ^ | October 18, 2018 | Margot Cleveland
    Last week, a federal judge in California dismissed a lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union had filed in 2016 challenging the government’s award of grants to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to provide services to unaccompanied minor illegal aliens and trafficking victims. In the lawsuit, the ACLU argued the grants violated the Establishment Clause because the Department of Health and Human Services allowed the Catholic organization (and its sub-grantees) to deny girls and women in their care contraceptives and abortion. The court rejected the ACLU’s Establishment Clause claim in a methodical 34-page opinion, explaining that the federal funds...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told a gathering at the 92nd Street Y in New York on Sunday that there may have to be “collateral damage” to those Americans who do not agree with the Democratic Party agenda. Pelosi was being interviewed onstage by Paul Krugman, the left-wing New York Times columnist and Nobel economic laureate who predicted, the day Donald Trump won the presidency, that Trump would trigger “a global recession, with no end in sight.” In a long, rambling monologue, during which she stumbled on her words and appeared to lose her train of thought, Pelosi said:...

    The repeated calls from top Democrats leaders and influential leftists to harass and even attack conservatives and Republicans are having their effect. GOP officials and conservatives have been attacked and threatened anywhere and everywhere. And the attacks aren’t just aimed at national figures such as Senator Ted Cruz, who was driven from a restaurant by #MeToo vigilantes during the confirmation hearings of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Leftists are attacking state and local GOP officials as well. Meanwhile, unhinged university professors have joined top Democrats in calling for an end to civility.

    SONIA SOTOMAYOR, ASSOCIATE JUSTICE, UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT: Ah, a very complicated question. After becoming a lawyer and judge of two courts, before going to the Supreme Court, the greatest difficulty is the expectation of others that, because I was Latina, I didn’t have the intelligence to be able to do this job. I don't know if you know that during this process of confirmation to the Supreme Court there were many who said, ´she does not have the intelligence to do this job well.’ There are many who have changed their minds about that, with the passage of time.

    Former President Jimmy Carter harshly criticized newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, calling him "unfit" to serve on the court. Speaking to a class at Emory University in Atlanta on Wednesday, Carter said that Kavanaugh's behavior during his confirmation hearings demonstrated that his appointment was "a very serious mistake," according to Emory's independent, student-run newspaper, The Emory Wheel. "Whether or not [Kavanaugh] attempted to rape [Christine Blasey Ford], I thought he was temperamentally unfit to serve on the Supreme Court because of his outburst during the hearing," Carter said, according to video taken by a student during his remarks....

    A pair of protesters confronted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in an airport over his vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, USA Today reported Wednesday. "You think that putting a sexual assaulter on the court is a victory for women?" one of the women can be heard asking Cruz in a video posted to Twitter. Cruz responds, stating that he believes in due process. The women then press Cruz about his support for Kavanaugh and ask the senator whether he believed the judge committed perjury during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee late last month regarding allegations...

    This year’s high-stakes midterm elections are fast approaching, and much ink has been spilled about a surge in women candidates running for office. Unfortunately, most of the hype has focused on only one type of woman: anti-Trump, pro-abortion, and angry about it. What about the millions of women and men who are eager to see more protections for unborn children and their mothers – who revere the Constitution and want more fair, impartial judges like Justice Kavanaugh appointed? Who is running to represent folks who not only decline the pink hats and handmaid outfits, but are happy about the direction...

    Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and Center for Arizona Policy Action announced a ground campaign to expose Rep. Kyrsten Sinema’s extreme views on abortion ahead of the midterm election. Since the summer of 2017, SBA List’s field team of more than 700 pro-life canvassers has visited more than two million voters at their homes across Indiana, Florida, Ohio, Missouri, North Dakota, and Montana. The campaign is part of an historic effort to educate and mobilize voters for the 2018 midterm elections. “When it comes to abortion, Rep. Sinema could not be more out of...

    FULL TITLE: Democrats Should be Asked if They Support Snipping Babies’ Necks in Abortions Like Kermit Gosnell Did Whatever a person’s position on the divisive issue of abortion, one would think and hope that at the very least, people can agree that babies who are born alive, and are completely separated from their mother’s body, should be protected by law. Well, as it turns out, not even that protection is secure. About 13,000 abortions a year in the United States occur at or beyond 21 weeks of pregnancy. Phone calls with legal abortion clinics that I have commissioned and that...

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released a draft of its new strategic plan for 2018-2022, and with the addition of a few small words, it’s clear that there is a major change. Formerly, the document stated the following in its introductory information: HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving Americans at every stage of life. The new edition now states this: HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving and protecting Americans at every stage of life, beginning at conception....

    The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that could determine whether users can challenge social media companies on free speech grounds. The case, Manhattan Community Access Corp. v. Halleck, No. 17-702, centers on whether a private operator of a public access television network is considered a state actor, which can be sued for First Amendment violations. The case could have broader implications for social media and other media outlets. In particular, a broad ruling from the high court could open the country’s largest technology companies up to First Amendment lawsuits. That could shape the ability of companies like...

    Why did the Democrats launch an unprecedented smear campaign against a Supreme Court nominee? The matrix of motives centers on a cynical midterm ploy to boost turnout, appeal to suburban female voters in swing states and, hopefully, defer the nomination to a Dem Senate. But that’s the short game, not the long game. The attack on Brett Kavanaugh was not just an assault on a man, but an attack on an institution. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 85 years old and Stephen Breyer is 80 years old. Presidential incumbents tend to win reelection. Even if the Democrats take the Senate, the...

    Less than a month after the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh entrenched a 5-4 conservative majority on the Supreme Court, leading law professors are urging Democrats to expand the size of all of the nation's federal courts and pack them with liberals. Far-left Harvard professors Mark Tushnet and Laurence Tribe are lending their support to the so-called "1.20.21 Project," which was launched by political science professor Aaron Belkin on Wednesday to counter "Republican obstruction, theft and procedural abuse" of the federal judiciary. That rhetoric reflects the professors' apparent surprise after Democrats lost the 2016 presidential election, which they had...

    "It was heartbreaking. But I think women are not going to recede," Waters said. "Women are going to continue to confront what took place in that confirmation and him. And he won't rest easy in his job." . . Waters has encouraged harassment of public officials in the past, famously telling supporters to "create a crowd" when they see Republican officials to "tell them they're not welcome." This comment led to some censure from leaders in the Democratic Party, but Waters said she will continue to back such direct action.
  • Feminists Won’t Like This Solution To Male Mistreatment Of Women

    I’ve raised six boys to manhood and I think I have a pretty solid handle on what would solve the anger of feminists at men. But they won’t like the answer. Really won’t like the answer. This thinking is spinning off from the political hackery against Brett Kavanaugh that also exposed some really strong emotions from a subset of women against men. Kavanaugh personally may have been innocent of the evidence-less accusations, but he acted as a locum for the generic anger this group of women have for men — for myriad reasons. For some, there is real cause to...
