Abortion and Ideology by Raymond Dennehy
– Ignatius Insight
A survey of the justifications advanced by scientists, philosophers, and other members of the elite class, such as judges, to justify the legalization of induced abortion reveals that they have abandoned rational inquiry in favor of ideology. For although their arguments have the trappings of the objectivity of scientific method and other marks of rational inquiry, it is clear that they subvert reason and manipulate evidence to actualize an ideal that they perceive to be above all rational criticism. This enslavement to ideology is but a reenactment of what happened in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia to the detriment of science and philosophy, not to mention the degradation of human life.

Rick Santorum invokes Martin Luther King re: abortion
– CNS
Rick Santorum agrees with the argument that the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., made in his 1963 Letter from Birmingham Jail that a just law is a manmade law that comports with the natural law or the law of God, and that he finds it “almost remarkable” that a black man like President Barack Obama would want to deny legal recognition for the human rights of an unborn child.

NHS Meltdown: Three Stories of of the Ongoing Liquifying
– Wesley J. Smith
Single payer systems collapse under budget constraints.  That is the lesson of the ongoing “NHS Meltdown” chronicled here over the last several years. Things have gotten so bad, I have to double triple up on the reporting from the front lines of the collapse.  First, a Telegraph expose` warns that the NHS is losing the ability to provide even the most basic care to birthing mothers.

Killings of newborn babies on the rise in Pakistan
– Yahoo News
In the conservative Muslim nation, where the birth of children outside of marriage is condemned and adultery is a crime punishable by death under strict interpretations of Islamic law, infanticide is a crime on the rise.

Birth control solution to school overcrowding in UK
– New York Post
Chancellor Cathie Black has riled parents and public officials by jokingly suggesting that “birth control” was the solution to school overcrowding. “Could we just have some birth control for a while?” Black cracked. “It could really help us all out a lot.”

HOMOSEXUALITY

Gender: the parent claptrap by Vincenzina Santoro –  Mercator
The US State Department does an about-face on mothers and fathers. Once again, the US government under the current administration has revealed the golden calf that they worship. This move was yet another attempt at a cultural shift that the majority of Americans do not favor.

Permitting new definitions of the family is not “natural” and undermines its fundamental position within society. A living arrangement that does not consist of married mother and father, children, and possibly other blood relatives, is not a family. Children should not be farmed, as some claimants to artificial parenthood insist on doing—by shopping for “eggs” and “sperm”, as though they were farm commodities.

National Public Radio offered the latest entry in its year-long series “The Hidden World of Girls,” which is subsidized by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowment for the Arts. Naturally, any series with this title might disappoint if it didn’t explore lesbians in Islamic countries, in this case, Pakistan.

MORE TUSCON SHOOTING RESPONSES

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords condition improves – GOP USA
Giffords opened her unbandaged eye shortly after President Barack Obama’s bedside visit Wednesday. Kelly asked her to give him a thumbs-up if she could hear him. She did more than that. She slowly raised her left arm. By the end of the week, she had moved her legs and arms.

Constitutional violence?

Precisely because of America’s free speech tradition, violent attacks on elected officials are very rare.

NYT’s Blow: Case for Civility Harmed by Those That Used Giffords Shooting for Political Gain
– Newsbusters
A week after the tragedy in Tucson, the Left is beginning to realize it made a dreadful mistake immediately trying to tie the event to conservatives. New York Times columnist Charles Blow summed it up marvelously Saturday: Don’t be fooled: the press got their its hand caught in the proverbial cookie jar this week, and the feelings of regret and remorse are because they got caught and not because of their actions.

Tucson Backfires – National Review
The Left’s shameful attempt to profit from the Giffords shooting has backfired.
Perhaps the most surprising thing about the American Left’s effort to transform the January 8 Tucson massacre from a tragic attack into an indictment of the American Right is how easily their charges crumbled. Krugman and company demand civil discourse while perpetrating the supreme incivility of accusing the Right of triggering mass murder while presenting nary an electron of evidence to confirm that claim.

Did Liberal ‘Rhetoric’ and ‘Irresponsibility’ Cause Death Threat?
– GOP USA
If the media are so concerned about rhetoric and actions, don’t you think it would have been wise to not invite this guy? Or how about postponing such a program until people have had time to grieve and mourn?

Why Palin’s Numbers are Dropping

Sarah Palin, Combat Veteran
– American Thinker
While Sarah is putting her life at risk – staffers say that since the Tucson blood libel, she’s getting death threats at an “unprecedented rate” – Mitt Romney can’t even bother to lead from the rear.  As for Newt Gingrich, he took time off from his busy schedule of cuddling up to Nancy Pelosi on global warming, to sneak onto the battlefield and lob grenades – at Sarah. You want leadership; you want steel spine; you want results?

Helllooooo…What happened in Congress Wednesday? The House voted to repeal ObamaCare, 245 – 189, with the Republicans voting unanimously for repeal. To whom do we owe this victory, more than anyone else, clearly and unequivocally? Sarah Palin. The Republican establishment loathes Sarah Palin; the conservative commentariat needs smelling salts at the very mention of her name; and the ruling class took a blood oath to destroy not just her, but her family, too.

Parents Television Council Calls for Federal Investigation Into MTV’s Skins
One day after it was reported Viacom executives ordered producers to tone down its racy teen drama, the Parents Television Council has announced it’s urging the Department of Justice and U.S. Senate and House Judiciary Committees to open an investigation.

“In addition to the sexual content on the show involving cast members as young as 15, PTC counted 42 depictions and references to drugs and alcohol in the premiere episode,” the group wrote in a letter to the government organizations. “It is clear that Viacom has knowingly produced material that may well be in violation of [several anti-child pornography laws],” added the PTC, which earlier called the show “the most dangerous program ever for children.”

A Racy Show With Teenagers Steps Back From a Boundary
– New York Times
MTV executives have a new hit drama on their hands, featuring the sexual and drug-fueled exploits of misfit teenagers. They also have something else — a fear that coming episodes of the show may break the law. In recent days, executives at the cable channel became concerned that some scenes from the provocative new show “Skins” may violate federal child pornography statutes.

Web I.D. = more gov’t control – One News Now
The senior vice president of the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) finds a federal proposal to create an Internet identification system “very troubling.” Craig Parshall, who oversees the communications and media efforts of NRB, stated, “I see this as one more example of massive federal overreach to control and regulate not only the Internet, but the way in which Americans can get in and out of websites, e-mail, and every other platform on the Internet,”

A New World Order is falling in place, with power shifting from West to East

During the super-cycle, we believe that China can displace the US as the world’s largest economy by 2020, far sooner than many expect. As emerging economies grow they will exert greater influence on the world economy. The countries that will succeed will be those with the cash, the commodities and the creativity.
