Fetal Gore Impact Study FAIL

noreply@blogger.com (fern hill) at DAMMIT JANET! - 41 minutes ago
Back here I promised to have at the "study" commissioned by the Fetal Gore Gang that tries to deliver on its long-standing claims that shoving gory images in people's faces does anything but make them recoil and occasionally toss chocolate milk. Here is the announcement of the study's birth. The study titled A Statistical Analysis on the Effectiveness of Abortion Victim Photography in Pro-life Activism was commissioned by the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (CCBR). The CCBR developed a survey — administered by the independent company Blue Direct — which targeted the popul... more »

Fake Clinics Use Federal Money to Fund Summer Jobs for Apprentice Liars

noreply@blogger.com (fern hill) at DAMMIT JANET! - 41 minutes ago
A few days ago, we reported on fake clinics, aka crisis pregnancy centres, getting government funding. We wondered what programs these lying liars could possibly qualify for. So we went looking. It's tremendously tedious but possible. One has to search by department or agency. We went to Service Canada looking for organizations that have received funding and found this or the downloadable/searchable PDF. Golly gee, in 2015 the Canada Summer Jobs program gave our money to four fake clinics in Alberta. • Calgary Pregnancy Care Centre: $12,782 (2 jobs) • Lethbridge Pregnancy Care ... more »

And they're not just listing the big battle grounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Illinois, Arizona, Florida and New Hampshire. The DSCC includes races where no one thinks there's one chance in 100 for the Democratic candidate to win-- like in Idaho where some guy named Jerry Sturgill is taking on Mike Crapo and in South Carolina, where Pastor Thomas Dixon is challenging Tim Scott. The most recent poll in Idaho shows Sturgill with support from 20% of registered voters. The DSCC ... more »

The Poet: Rainer Maria Rilke, "Book of Hours II, 16"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 hour ago
*"Book of Hours II, 16"* "How surely gravity's law, strong as an ocean current, takes hold of even the strongest thing and pulls it toward the heart of the world. Each thing- each stone, blossom, child- is held in place. Only we, in our arrogance, push out beyond what we belong to for some empty freedom. If we surrendered to earth's intelligence we could rise up rooted, like trees. Instead we entangle ourselves in knots of our own making and struggle, lonely and confused. So, like children, we begin again to learn from the things, because they are in God's heart; they have never left h... more »

"We live in radical times surrounded by tasks that seem impossible. It has become our collective fate to be alive in a time of great tragedies, to live in a period of overwhelming disasters and to stand at the edge of sweeping changes. The river of life is flooding before us, and a tide of poisons affect the air we breathe and the waters we drink and even tarnish the dreams of those who are young and as yet innocent. The snake-bitten condition has already spread throughout the collective body. However, it is in troubled times that it becomes most important to remember that the wond... more »

Seymour bags the National Socialists

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 1 hour ago
National Party members and MPs used to be horrified when Libertarianz called them National Socialists. Now, they issue press releases *boasting* about their prowess at redistribution, prompting ACT’s David Seymour to state the obvious: *The ACT Leader has lambasted the Government over what he calls it's "socialist streak" - calling for tax relief for New Zealand's top earners. He said Government "boasting" about income redistribution took "campaigning from the right and governing from the left to a whole new level."

Chelsea Clinton’s “Apartment” Is Secret Medical Facility For Hillary

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 3 hours ago
Hillary Clinton’s unexpected visit to her daughter’s NYC apartment after collapsing from pneumonia this weekend was actually a secret visit to a discreet medical facility. The Democratic nominee detoured to daughter Chelsea Clinton’s alleged apartment after collapsing during the September 11 memorial service in New York on Sunday. However, the address she was filmed entering turns out to be a secret hospital that may have treated her for a more serious neurological problem.

Alternative Media Vindicated As Rumours About Hillary’s Health Confirmed

Sunday’s revelation that Hillary Clinton is seriously ill vindicates many alternative media outlets who have been saying for months that Hillary has sought to suppress just how gravely ill she really is. As mainstream news outlets now admit that Hillary may be lying about having pneumonia – and may instead have a more serious neurological problem – her own party are being forced to consider replacing her as their nominee.

Bob Tuskin, co-founder of the Free Your Mind conference, interviewed passersby, asking them if they would like to watch a video of a building collapsing.

Donald Trump has called for the upcoming debate with Hillary Clinton to be conducted without a moderator present, claiming that moderators will be “rigged” in her favor. The Republican nominee said that a debate with a moderator would be both “unfair” and “rigged”. “I think maybe we should have no moderator. Let Hillary and I sit there and just debate, because I think the system is being rigged so it’s going to be a very unfair debate,” Trump told CNBC.

One of the most difficult challenges in life is learning not to take things to heart and hold on to it.

Could Trump Turn Into America's Erdogan... Who Most Americans Have Never Heard Of?

Mike Segar/Reuters *The Hill:* *Washington wonders: What would a Trump Pentagon look like?* With much of the Republican national security establishment shunning their party’s presidential nominee, it’s unclear who would serve in Donald Trump’s Pentagon if he won the White House. Observers say Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a close Trump adviser, could be a prime candidate for Defense secretary, though he might be a better fit for a job elsewhere in the administration. Ultimately, Trump’s potential Pentagon team would likely be like much of the rest of his campaign — unexpected and ... more »

*“Hillary Is Done”* by Karl Denninger "Hillary’s campaign ended Sunday with the now-infamous all-on collapse that the spin doctors are now claiming was due to “pneumonia” she “was diagnosed with Friday.” Yeah, sure it was.

The one place you cannot have a wipe-out of this sort is on the grounds of a terrorist attack 15 years ago, after saying the President must be “solid as a rock” in an attack on your opponent a few days earlier, then literally collapsing and having ... more »

*I think so.* Just about everyone has seen the damning video of Hillary being dragged into her van after collapsing at the 9/11 memorial yesterday. And yet, if you wander over to Huff and Puff, you can read comment after comment saying there is nothing wrong with her. It was the heat, menopause, a touch of pneumonia, or her busy schedule that caused her to "stumble."

9/11 WTC Building Covertly Wired For Demolition (Video)

On the weekend immediately preceding the 9/11 attacks, security cameras were powered down and the normal patrols with bomb sniffing dogs were curtailed. “That’s an indisputable fact,” says Brasscheck TV on Sunday. The question of the century is: Was one single weekend enough time for the two towers (and WTC 7) to be wired for demolition? Covert wiring for demolition is a common tactic used by special military forces, according to a source. Another source, a photographer, says that the Twin Towers were built with demolition in mind.
