Somali national Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, who I am guessing is in the USA benefiting from Obama’s Islamic refugee policies, has been officially charged for killing Jessica McCormack and kidnapping her three young children.
Jessica McCormack & her 3-kids — 4-year-old Siah Casillas, 20-month-old Saidah Noor, and 7-month-old Intisar Mahamed
I have not located any information on Mahamed’s apprehension nor in the manner he may have killed McCormack whose dead body was found stuffed in a suitcase.
Noel man charged with kidnapping murder victim’s daughter
A Noel man has been charged in federal court with kidnapping the 4-year-old daughter of a woman whose body was discovered in a suitcase last month. Read the full press release below:
Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, 37, a Somali national***, was charged in a criminal complaint filed late Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Springfield, Mo. Mahamed is not in federal custody and is a fugitive from justice.
According to an affidavit filed in support of the federal criminal complaint, the body of Jessica McCormack, of Noel, was discovered on July 29, 2019, near Missouri Highway 59 between Lanagan, Mo., and Noel.
The last time McCormack was seen alive, the affidavit says, was when law enforcement officers responded to a call at her home on July 16, 2019. Also present in the residence were Mahamed, who was identified as McCormack’s paramour, and McCormack’s three daughters, identified in court documents as Jane Doe 1 (four years old), Jane Doe 2 (two years old), and Jane Doe 3 (six months old). Jane Doe 2 is Mahamed’s daughter.
McCormack’s children could not be located after her body was discovered and identified.
An Amber Alert was issued for McCormack’s three children, who were located at a residence in Des Moines, Iowa, and taken into state custody on Aug. 8, 2019.
According to the affidavit, a woman who formerly worked with Mahamed at the Tyson plant in Noel told law enforcement officers that Mahamed arrived at her Des Moines residence with the children on Aug. 5, 2019. She discovered he had left on Aug. 8, 2019, the affidavit says, when she found a note from Mahamed informing her that he could not care for the children.

Open to Every Stranger Under the Sun – Disgusting and Shameful

Today in America, there isn’t any other issue more dangerous to all Americans and poised to completely ruin America and tear Her asunder than the necessity of stopping the anti-American, communist inspired globalist and Democratic Party initiatives and policies, that advocate and facilitate Open Borders, free healthcare, voting rights and U.S. citizenship for ILLEGAL Aliens. America is either a nation of laws and the rule of law or it isn’t. America and Her people either stop this madness or Americans will watch as we lose our culture and our American heritage, and indeed, America as She has stood for over 200 years. [Bold Text by Blog Editor]
Over a year and a half ago, President Trump called for American’s to set aside their differences and “to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people … the people we are elected to serve.”
I’m pretty damned certain President Trump was speaking about the American people and not the Illegal Alien invaders now attempting to force their way into the nation and even demanding entrance. There isn’t any common ground to be found today between the Democratic Party, who represents Illegal Aliens’ interests over those of actual citizens and the Conservatives of America, who are fighting to save the Republic from their Open Borders policy and their flagrant flaunting of the law.
Recently, in response to an ICE operation aimed at carrying out thousands of deportation orders on July 14th, some two thousand protesters gathered outside of the GEO Group’s federal immigration detention center in Aurora, Colorado on July 12th, voicing their anger over Illegal Aliens being held in “cages”, in the same manner seen in at least ten other U.S. cities over this particular weekend. In what has become all too common place a display of Anti-American sentiment, shocking and despicable nevertheless, these protesters defaced an American flag with spray painted words “Abolish ICE” and the raised it upside down and alongside the Mexican flag.
Flag Desecration at GEO Group Federal immigration detention center Aurora CO 7/12/19
One young toddler of obvious European descent was pictured in a stroller carrying a sign that read, “Would you steal me from my mother and lock me in a Filthy Cage?”
They seem to have forgotten, or they simply choose to ignore, the fact that rivers of blood have been spilled under the American Flag to defend and preserve the freedom they enjoy today, as they use their “rights” to abuse the nation in such a vile, despicable and reprehensible fashion, placing their hatred for America on full display.
Claudia Castillo, a former U.S. Army Major and an intelligence officer, was there as a representative for the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition. She told the Denver Post that those who took part in the disrespect of the American Flag shoved her, cursed her and spit on her when she tried to stop them. Castillo said, “It was disgusting and shameful”. And many Americans agree with you Major.
Meanwhile, at approximately 4:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 13th, Willem Van Spronsen, an Antifa member, attacked the Northwest Detention Center, the local ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington. According to the Tacoma Police Department, Spronsen was throwing incendiary devices, setting cars ablaze, and armed with a “homemade” AR15 when they stopped him, killing him, before he could detonate the facility’s propane tank, which could have resulted in the mass murder of the facilities guards and those in detention.
Willem Van Spronsen Antifa terrorist killed police Tacoma WA
In his manifesto[Blog Editor: Manifesto text on pro-Antifa website actually eulogizing the terrorist as a hero. Can you say seeds of Civil War?], released by KIRO7, Spronsen said he wanted to make a statement at the facility, writing: “I regret that I will miss the rest of the revolution. Doing what I can to help defend my precious and wondrous people is an experience too rich to describe. I am Antifa.” If he was truly interested in defending his “precious people”, he would have been defending them against being robbed, raped and murdered by illegal aliens every day, every week and each year.
While Spronsen was attacking an ICE facility, New York’s Marxist Mayor Bill de Blasio was telling Illegal Aliens, “we will do everything we can to protect you.” DeBlasio and others have essentially announced that they are openly violating federal immigration laws.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged Illegal Aliens to resist deportation on July 11th. She suggested that they have the right to refuse to open their doors to ICE agents who try to apprehend them in any national sweep aimed at their deportation. In similar fashion, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign sent out a mass email, that said the same thing, except with a lot more detail on how to interact with ICE, and in seventeen different languages.
What a load of Bull Manure. It is this sort of Commie Lunacy that aids criminal Illegal Aliens over the good and decent Americans. These nuts in our society and even Congress are protecting Illegal Alien criminals.
Thankfully, on July 12th, acting ICE director Thomas Homan gave a compelling and emotionally charged accounting for his actions, before Congress, and put AOC in her place, when she castigated him on separating children from families, by noting that even U.S. citizens are separated from their children when they commit a crime. AOC countered that seeking asylum isn’t illegal, but was shown her error and left speechless and fumbling with her papers, when Homan stated: “if you want to seek asylum, then go to a port of entry. Do it the legal way. The Attorney General (Barr} of the United States has made that clear.”
In connection with their report on July 12th, Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to the Prairie State Wire in Illinois, that Jose Rodriguez, who struck and killed Corey Cottrell on June 22nd, is an illegal alien. And, according to ICE, Rodriguez had an expedited removal order dating all the way back to April 17th 2013.
Breitbart reports that there are 1.7 million people from Central America and Mexico living in the United States who have been issued final deportation orders. Breitbart also noted that Illinois became a sanctuary state in 2017 and currently harbors 400,000 illegal aliens from being detained and deported. Rodriguez was even granted bail by Illinois despite his deportation order.
Engulfing our country with their outrageous and dangerous crap, the blood of thousands of maimed and murdered Americans is on the hands of the corrupt and criminal Congressmen and their supporters, who are obstructing good immigration law and securing our borders. Every damn day more Americans die at the hands of Illegal Aliens and Congress does nothing other than continue their protection of criminal Illegal Aliens.
From the first day of the 1965 Immigration Act, the law has been utilized by Democrat administrations to single-handedly alter the face of America forever, and rather than do their duty to America and the Constitution, we see political prostitutes in Congress, represent the antithesis of America’s Founding and openly defy the intelligent enforcement of more than four hundred federal statutes aimed at preventing illegal aliens, drugs and terrorists and weapons of mass destruction from crossing our borders. They have turned the nation into a flaming cauldron of cultural and ethnic differences, in the name of multiculturalism and diversity, and their efforts are resulting in the erosion and destruction of our entire Founding, through mass migrations of people with little respect or love for America’s Western and Judeo-Christian Principles, much less our Constitution.
Article IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution reads: “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”
And yet, mass legal immigration into America isn’t adequate enough for the red, radical, communist Democrats, who scream “racist” at the very mention of the border wall, calling it a “monument to white supremacists”. However, anyone paying attention understands this is all theater in their fight to ensure their power and control of the U.S. government for the rest of the century.
Today, rather than throw America’s doors wide open forever to hordes of the Ungrateful and despite Emma Lazarus’ words, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free …”, America should take sound counsel and allow entry to only those hopeful immigrants who support our principles and Constitution and come not to subvert and overthrow our republic as aliens and enemies.
No nation can last forever when its borders are open to every stranger under the sun.

I was born in California, spent my entire childhood and teenage years and early twenties in Ellensburg, Washington (1960s – early 1980s). In those days E-burg had a Mayberry/Leave-it-to-Beaver vibe. I mean no one locked their doors. I have since lived most of the 1980s through the present in Oklahoma (with intermittent stays back in E-burg).
I begin with this tidbit of info because I received a shocking phone call from my daughter still living in Washington State (though not E-burg but still East of the Cascades). My daughter updated me on a tragedy that took place a few days ago involving Kittitas County sheriff deputies, E-burg police and city of Kittitas (even smaller than E-burg) Police Officer.
Per my daughter, an Illegal Alien Mexican (expired Green Card) shot and killed a Deputy Sheriff over a road-rage incident in Ellensburg. This would be crazy shocking in the E-burg I grew up in.
I found some of the details in a LifeZette article you can read below.
A road rage suspect who investigators say shot and killed a Washington State sheriff’s deputy and wounded a police officer early this week was in the U.S. illegally, federal authorities said Thursday.
In an email to Fox News, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokeswoman Tanya Roman said 29-year-old Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, a Mexican citizen, entered the U.S. at Laredo, Texas, in April 2014 on a temporary agricultural worker visa.
Roman said ICE had no record of him leaving the United States or extending his visa after it expired.
The federal gov't said the man who killed a sheriff’s deputy and wounded a police officer in a #Washington state shootout was in the US illegally.
“Our community has a very heavy heart today,” Dana told reporters. “This officer was a great officer.”https://t.co/idCTZ43iur
Investigators say Flores Del Toro fatally shot 42-year-old Kittitas County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Thompson and wounded 22-year-old Kittitas Police Officer Benito Chavez Tuesday night after they attempted to stop his vehicle following a driving complaint.
He allegedly emerged from his vehicle and opened fire on the officers after a short pursuit.
The suspect was later shot by officers who returned fire, and was pronounced dead a short time later at Kittitas Valley Hospital.
Ellensburg Police Capt. Dan Hansberry said there were no warrants pending for his arrest, and officers do not know why he fled the attempted stop.
Last week I shared a CNSNews.com story about California State Attorney General Kamala Harris ordering and executing a search warrant of David Daleiden’s private residence fishing for more video footage of his exposé of the Planned Parenthood marketing of born alive then murdering babies for their anatomical body parts. Characteristically of America’s Left dominated justice system the courts actually went after Daleiden rather than the evils of Planned Parenthood breaking the law. Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were indicted in Houston Texas under the Grand Jury guidance of another Left Wing Texas State Prosecutor Devon Anderson followed her corrupt Planned Parenthood connections.
Kamala Harris’ search team absconded with previously unreleased video footage of Planned Parenthood nefarious activities. You have to ask, “To what end was a search warrant issued since no indictment in California has occurred nor a stated reason for the search? Planned Parenthood was caught in extra-legal activities and they search Daleiden’s place.”
Why haven’t State and Federal authorities exhaustively investigated Planned Parenthood for trafficking organ parts taken from living individuals? Even to a Leftist, doesn’t an unborn baby become a legal living person if born alive? I believe abortion is murder, but for God’s sake aren’t all children after a live-birth a legal person with Constitutional protections under the rule of law? David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress team members that exposed this illegal practice should be given ticker-tape parades around the major cities of America. AND NOT PERSECUTED WITH PROSECUTION!
After pro-abortion California Attorney General Kamala Harris stole unreleased video footage concerning Planned Parenthood during a raid on the home of David Daleiden, the director of the Center for Medical Progress, pro-life groups called for her resignation. Now they’re leading a rally at her office to continue that call.
California authorities seized a laptop and hard drives containing the video footage collected during Daleiden’s 3-year investigation of Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains, according to a written statement made by Life Legal Defense Foundation, which is helping to defend Daleiden.
Harris, a pro-abortion Democrat, chose to focus her investigation on Daleiden and his associates rather than Planned Parenthood, even though the video footage so far released by Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress shows clear evidence that Planned Parenthood was illegally altering abortion procedures to endure intact organs targeted for harvesting then selling the organs for profit.
“Instead of standing for the preborn in California and investigating Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of aborted baby parts, Kamala Harris has decided to stand with the abortion industry and has set out on a mission to hurt David and make an example out of him, to scare pro-lifers and other journalists into never questioning what goes on behind the closed and federally protected doors of Planned Parenthood,” she said. “It’s corrupt, despicable, and a threat to any pro-lifer or citizen journalist out there who wants to expose truth.”
“We have to show the national media and the state of California that our movement stands with David, now more than ever, and we aren’t going to let their corrupt officials get away with it,” Hawkins said. “And this standing for David needs to be more than a Facebook post or petition. We need to be there in person, showing Kamala Harris that we aren’t afraid of her or her cronies at Planned Parenthood.”
“We are going to fill a bus today with students from Students for Life groups all over the Northwest. They are going to drive through the night and arrive in Sacramento tomorrow, Wednesday, April 13th,” she added. “At 11am on April 13th, the pro-life generation is going to stand in front of the Attorney General’s office and demand that she resign immediately.”
Brian Johnston of California Pro-Life Council joined in criticizing Harris.
“Last year, David Daleiden’s videos of Planned Parenthood officials arranging the sale of human organs from aborted children stunned the world. While seven other state’s Attorneys General launched investigations into the PP actions in their states our state’s ‘top cop’ decided to do the opposite,” he said.
“She ignored PP’s macabre actions and instead decided to pursue and silence the investigator! At that time we knew of at least several sizable-political donations directly from PP to Harris. Since then more than $80,000 of PP political donations to the AG have been revealed. Her campaign web-site even includes a ‘petition of support’ for Planned Parenthood,” he added.
Johnson is also supporting the rally: “On Weds. April 13 there will be a rally and demonstration in front of the AG’s Sacramento office protesting the heavy-handed use of government powers for the political purposes of this campaigning, abortion ideologue.”

I have been following the Oregon incident with the Bundy ranchers holed up on a nature reserve to protest Bureau of Land Management (BLM) abuse of land despotically managed and usurped by the Federal government. The standoff led to mass arrests mostly of people that were protesting the BLM legally and one person who was a reporter probably because his reporting placed the government in a bad light and favorable toward ranchers. The standoff culminated in what I believe to be the unjustifiable murder of LaVoy Finicum by State and Federal police. The last post was a submission by Justin Smith which I felt was a decent summary up to the date.
I have been a bit surprised by those who usually demonstrate a lack of trust of information disseminated by government sources who support the storyline that Finicum was justifiably killed by authorities because he reached for a gun inside his vest when cornered by multiple armed police. On a personal level I don’t buy that explanation at least not with more information being released for public viewing. I expect a coverup.
Below is a post from Timothy Baldwin which I believe is closer to the truth.
The FBI and Oregon police killed a rancher, Lavoy Finicum, last week. Savoy joined Ammon Bundy, among others, for three weeks in occupying a refuge on public lands in Burns. Like many Americans, the occupiers believed BLM had been long abusing power. Police released one video of the incident (but not other pertinent surveillance). Was this killing lawful?
Under the Fourth Amendment, police who use deadly force have a burden to prove their actions were objectively reasonable in light of the facts and circumstances confronting them based on the totality of the circumstances.
Regardless of one’s view of the occupation, the video raises issues regarding police’ actions: (1) Why block the highway in nowhere-ville? (2) Why use snipers and a dozen-plus officers? (3) Why not use spike strips to stop him? (4) When exactly was Lavoy likely to harm police?—when shot, Lavoy was facing no police, could barely walk in deep snow and held no gun. (5) Lavoy had not just committed a dangerous felony and fleeing therefrom. (6) Police had prior opportunities to serve an arrest warrant in a safe manner. (7) Why immediately rush Lavoy and spark conflict rather than contain the area and determine his actions?
The occupiers did not convince the greater part of society to aid them, given their seeming “state of war” approach. Still, if our laws can condemn Lavoy, they can also condemn police.
In fairness, there are some who are not normally forgiving to government abuse but believe police were justified in killing Lavoy: one such notable viewpoint on this incident is my dad, Chuck Baldwin. I, on the other hand, believe the video suggests that police were not justified in killing Lavoy when they did–even assuming he had a pistol inside his jacket and was reaching for it.
After Lavoy’s death, his family was able to view his body. They released a press statement that they observed nine (9) bullet inserts in Lavoy’s body. Police have yet to release autopsy records or comment on that statement; however, reports record police admitting that Lavoy was shot several times.
For now, assuming Lavoy was shot multiple times, those shots had to occur before the last shot–the kill shot to Lavoy’s head, which dropped Lavoy to the snow-covered ground.
Since police did not release any audio or other videos–all of which they possess and could release–of the incident, the public does not know exactly when and how many times police shot Lavoy, with the exception of what appears to be the last shot to Lavoy’s head.
Regardless of whether Lavoy was shot 9 (as Lavoy’s family states) or a few times (as police state), the video shows that the last shot was the fatal head shot. Thus, the other shots were to his body before Lavoy was shot in the head. Of course, all of these shots had to happen within seconds after Lavoy exited his vehicle with his hands up.
If Lavoy was shot more than once in his body before the last shot to his head, this supports the argument that quickly after Lavoy exited his vehicle with his hands up (signaling his surrender) police shot him in his body. This would have caused Lavoy to drop his hands where he was shot.
Since Lavoy dropped his hands to his body and statements from both Lavoy’s family and police state that Lavoy was shot several times in his body, one must assume that Lavoy dropped his hands and placed them on his body where he was shot. Ironically, Lavoy’s dropping his hands in this manner was the alleged justification for killing Lavoy.
Did police create the “justification” of killing Lavoy by shooting him in his body, which caused him to drop his hands?
Still, assuming police did not shoot Lavoy in his body before they shot him in his head (which means they shot him while he was dead on the ground–why would they do that?) and assuming Lavoy was reaching for a pistol inside his jacket or pocket (which is it?), the video reveals that the police who rushed out of the woods and charged Lavoy killed him prematurely.
The video shows two police charging Lavoy (one from the bottom and one from the top of the video) immediately after Lavoy exited his truck. This rush approach was not only unnecessary, but also needlessly provocative under these circumstances.
In a real sense, police created the exigency needed to kill Lavoy for “officer safety”, similar to police creating the exigency of completely blocking the road in what appears to be a location that gave Lavoy very little time to slow down or stop his truck. (One would need to study Oregon’s and federal laws of when and how road blocks are to be conducted: there are limits by law. See e.g. State v. Boyanovsky, 304 Ore. 131, 134, 743 P.2d 711, 712 (Or. 1987) (ruling road block was unconstitutional); see also Nelson v. Lane County, 304 Ore. 97, 125, 743 P.2d 692, 70 (Or. 1987) (discussion of constitutionality of road blocks).
This is clear from the video: police did not give Lavoy a reasonable opportunity to surrender and enough time to assess the danger level. Instead of the heavy force of police maintaining their positions behind cover until such time as Lavoy clearly demonstrated his intent, police–who appeared little concerned about containing the safety of everyone and use as little force as necessary–immediately charged Lavoy and quickly shot him.
But here are the factors that essentially demonstrate that police killed Lavoy unjustifiably.
During the short and quick period of time that the two aforementioned police rushed him, Lavoy (1) could hardly keep his footing in the deep snow, (2) had no gun in his hand, (3) had no meaningful opportunity to draw a pistol inside his clothing quickly enough to take accurate aim and shoot any nearby police, and (4) was not even facing the two nearest police (who charged him) when he was shot in the head and killed. The totality of these circumstances supports the conclusion that he was killed prematurely, or at a minimum, calls into question the police’ claim of justification.
Assuming Lavoy would have pulled a gun at any time and posed a legitimate threat to a police officer, there were dozens of police ready and able to kill or disable Lavoy. This reality is what makes the actions of the two police who charged Lavoy appear so unnecessary, excessive and provocative. One must wonder how much training and experience the police had (especially who shot Lavoy) for these situations; what kind of briefing took place before the incident; and whether the rush tactic at a road block was preplanned or orchestrated.
Admittedly, more facts are needed to form a solid opinion here.
The government has a heavy burden of proof of justifying their killing of Lavoy. The released video and summary statement by police that since Lavoy was “going for a gun” police were justified in killing him do not meet that heavy burden: the totality of the circumstances simply does not appear to justify their killing Lavoy.
Police should release (as they should in time with demands from the Finnicum family attorneys) all of the evidence relative to the question, including:
use of force reports
police training manuals and certifications
applicable warrants or court orders and affidavits in support
written and recorded witness statements
photos of entire scene and Lavoy’s body
in-car video surveillance of all vehicles and drones
police body-cameras of all officers
police policy and procedures (state and federal) for use of deadly force
road block planning memorandums
officer duty and task assignments
One interested in justice would hope that the government does not withhold, destroy, lose or fabricate the evidence. Whether you agree with Lavoy and the Oregon occupiers or not, the government must follow the law. Accepting any other standard places all political dissidents and protestors in the government’s absolute wrath and arbitrary use of deadly force. Liberty cannot survive in that environment.
Lastly, there are federal laws in effect to detain and prosecute “enemy combatants” and “domestic terrorists” who place themselves in a state of war with the United States. Notably, the federal and state governments did not treat Lavoy and the occupiers under such laws. Rather, they treated them as normal citizens of the United States who were simply breaking the law, such as criminal trespass, intimidation, and impeding an officer’s investigation/duty. Therefore, Lavoy and the occupiers deserved the same treatment and respect of the law as you and I.
Timothy Baldwin, born in 1979, is an attorney licensed to practice law in Montana (and formerly Florida) and handles a variety of cases, including constitutional, criminal, and civil. Baldwin graduated from the University of West Florida in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in English and Political Science. In 2004, Baldwin graduated from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham, AL with a Juris Doctorate (JD) degree. From there, Baldwin became an Assistant State Attorney in Florida. For 2 1/2 years, Baldwin prosecuted criminal actions and tried nearly 60 jury trials. In 2006, Baldwin started his private law practice and has maintained it since.
Tony Newbill has found two stories that are not really similar except perhaps in one thought; viz. the focus is in government overreach as in utilizing too much police authority as per the rights of American citizens.
The first examines that LaVoy Finicum’s murder was motivated more by government greed via the deception of ecological concern. Evidently the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) usurped public land in Oregon under the auspices of protecting a bird that MIGHT go on the endangered species, BUT when the bird did not make the list the BLM began collaborating with a mining company that wants to mine for uranium to turn it into yellow cake. The thing is the process of extracting the yellow cake is a probably environmental disaster toward ranchers and farmers in that Oregon area.
The second case involved the Dearborn Police chasing a woman that fled a mall in which she aimed her car at mall security. As the chase ensued the Dearborn Police managed to place the lady’s car into an enough of a standstill for massive bullet to be shot at the fleeing 31-year-old lady (Janet Wilson) who died from the bullets. Two things of note to me is that the Dearborn Police have a habit propping up the Dearborn Muslim majority’s acts of stifling the First Amendment rights of Christians AND the 31-year-old lady was an African-American. Sadly, within a 40-day period the 31-year-old Black lady was the second African-American that died (Kevin Matthews) at the hands of the Dearborn Police through the same use of unreasonable force.

Oregon Standoff: Robert ‘LaVoy’ Finicum Dead, Bundys Arrested
Sent: 1/31/2016 11:03 AM
The police in cooperation with the FBI got their men about 20 miles north of Burns, Oregon on Tuesday, January 26, 2016. Mark that day in history, folks, as the day the old west was given a warning shot. A warning shot that said very loud and clear to the American public: Don’t mess with the government, don’t question authority, don’t stand up for the Constitution or your supposed “rights,” just submit or die.
Once there was a cowboy who let his herd of cattle roam free on thousands of acres of wilderness. He knew that they would live in harmony with the other critters, and that the land would benefit. He made sure that there was plenty of water and plenty of room so that the land would flourish. You see, if given enough room, critters are good for the land. They eat the overgrown forage and leave behind fertilizer that helps new forage to grow, which nourishes every other critter. Each critter has enough room to get out of the other one’s way, and everyone is happy.
That is, until the government in its infinite “scientific” wisdom, decides that cattle are bad for the land.
But is that the real reason that cattle ranching, as it has been done for over a hundred years, is now scheduled to become obsolete? A thing of the past – something to be disdained and thrown to the curb?
Picture a pristine wilderness devoid of the ravages of civilization and industrial development. Birds flying overhead and deer roaming free. Paradise as far as the eye can see. And in the middle of this haven designated as “public lands” set apart to be protected by the benevolence of the Federal Government’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM), is an open pit uranium mine.
Say what??? You have got to be kidding me! Nope. This is what the BLM has on the back burner for the Malheur Wilderness area.
And the cowboys? Well, the last ones who attempted to get in the way of this takeover of land for the “public good” are now sentenced to 5 years in prison and branded as terrorists for protecting their land and cattle and forced to “grant the BLM first right of refusalif the Hammonds ever sold their ranch.”
The Dark Side of Environmental Conservation
Environmental conservation is a good thing. But is that what is really being done by the BLM when it takes over land? Maybe what the BLM is actually doing is grabbing land in the name of environmental conservation and placing it under the sole control of the government and out of the hands of we the people in order to do with it as the government pleases.
The lands that the government collects are called “public lands.” The BLM is charged with managing “public lands,” and routinely leases and sells mineral rights on the very same lands that it is supposed to manage and protect.
BLM’s Planning Manual 1601 explains the use of public lands:
Land use plans ensure that the public lands are managed in accordance with the intent of Congress as stated in FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), i.e., under the principles of multiple use and sustained yield. As required by FLPMA, the public lands must be managed in a manner that protects the quality of scientific, scenic, historical, ecological, environmental, air and atmospheric, water resource, and archaeological values; that, where appropriate, will preserve and protect certain public lands in their natural condition; that will provide food and habitat for fish and wildlife and domestic animals; and that will provide for outdoor recreation and human occupancy and use by encouraging collaboration and public participation throughout the planning process. In addition, the public lands must be managed in a manner that recognizes the Nation’s need for domestic sources of minerals, food, timber, and fiber from the public lands.
According to the BLM Planning Manual, the agency is charged with maintaining the ecological environment of its public lands. That is, of course, unless it decides that mining for uranium supersedes any such directive.
Uranium on BLM-Administered Lands in OR/WA
In September 2011, a representative from Oregon Energy, L.L.C. (formally Uranium One), met with local citizens, and county and state officials, to discuss the possibility of opening a uranium oxide (“yellowcake”) mine in southern Malheur County in southeastern Oregon. Oregon Energy is interested in developing a 17-Claim parcel of land known as the Aurora Project through an open pit mining method. Besides the mine, there would be a mill for processing. The claim area occupies about 450 acres and is also referred to as the “New U” uranium claims.
This is conservation? Here is the open pit uranium mining proposal:
Uranium mine plan
Oregon Energy’s proposal calls for extracting ore from a mile-long, 600-foot wide, 250-foot deep open pit 10 miles west of McDermitt and 3 miles north of the Oregon-Nevada border. The mine, adjoining the former Bretz Mercury Mine, a contaminated open-pit site from the 1960s, would cost $200 million to develop and uranium extraction could continue for up to 20 years, said Oregon Energy President Lachlan Reynolds.
Plans call for the ore to be crushed and mixed with an acid solution in enclosed vats to leach out the uranium, he said. The acid would bond with the uranium and when dry become a sand-like powder called uranium oxide concentrate, or yellowcake. Yellowcake would bring $52 per pound and could fuel nuclear reactors or be processed into weapons.
Reaction: Demonize cattle ranchers and blame the cattle for a decline in the sage grouse in order to free the land for alternate government use by pitting environmentalists against cattle grazing and the ranchers to gain the required reaction of placing the land under further restrictions in order to be protected from environmental harm.
Solution: The government gets the land.
The government wants the land for “conservation” efforts. In order to achieve this, the ranchers with their cattle and any private property interests need to go so that there is no interference. This way the land can be “protected” by the BLM and used for any purpose that the government wants it for, including uranium development.
The question then becomes – who will get the land – the sage grouse or uranium miners. In either case, the ranchers are out and the cattle can be consigned to your friendly neighborhood CAFO (concentrated animal feeding operation).
The rancher takes the blame, and the government does as it pleases. If the grouse is listed as an endangered species, the land is taken for conservation. If it isn’t, the land is taken for corporate energy and uranium mining. A win/win for big government. It’s called hedging your bets. Either way, the little guy loses and the government wins, and the rancher is left holding the bag. He either gets booted out by the sage grouse, or booted out by uranium interests, and there goes another source of local food and independence, leaving us ever more dependent on the corporate food chain.
Since a decision was made to not list the sage grouse as an endangered species in 2015, guess which interests won? You’ve got it – mining. Now the only problem left is to work out how to make the energy industry operations appear “beneficial” to the environment so as not to concern the sage grouse supporters, and to declare more public land as “cattle free,” again, for the benefit of the environment. Not a problem that a good Public Relations campaign can’t handle. Cha-Ching!

Wayne County Medical Examiner rules death of woman shot by Dearborn police a homicide (UPDATED)

Yesterday’s fatal shooting of a 31-year-old Detroit woman by Dearborn police has been ruled a homicide by the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s office.
Janet Wilson was shot Wednesday afternoon by a Dearborn officer after driving erratically and allegedly trying to run over an officer on Hubbard Drive near the Southfield Freeway. Witnesses had reported Wilson acting strangely at nearby Fairlane Town Center and mall security was notified.
Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw said the 31-year-old woman’s vehicle got stuck in traffic as she left the mall, and she tried to flee as officers approached.
Shaw says a Dearborn officer fired when the woman almost ran over an officer. Wilson died of multiple gunshot wounds and the officer was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad said both of the officer-involved shooting incidents are being independently criminally investigated by outside agencies, and that the department is committed to transparency and disclosure by fully cooperating with the investigations.
“Upon conclusion of the criminal investigations we will be conducting internal reviews on both of these incidents,” Haddad said. “While we are very proud of our long history of Civil Rights advocacy as well as our history of appropriate use of force, we will closely examine all of our policies and procedures to ensure that we are employing the latest training and following national best practices in all of our responsibilities to the community.
Once we are allowed and it is appropriate to do so, we fully intend to make public disclosures regarding these incidents.”
He also was not down on his knees with his hands behind his head as relayed by the wife of Ammon Bundy.
However, he clearly had his hands in the air when he exited the vehicle.
You will notice that at several points he does drop his hands. Because there is no sound, it is difficult to tell if he was responding to being shot or whether he was reaching for a sidearm.
One officer approaching from behind seems to shoot him in the back at the 0:24 second mark, as other officers are there as well. You can clearly see the snipers in the trees as well, which was relayed by Victoria Sharp. However, the video doesn’t seem to capture any of the shooting into the vehicle that she claimed took place, though it is hard to tell. At least, I can’t see it, though that could have happened during the time when the truck took off or after Finicum was gunned down. Without sound, it is impossible to determine when shots were fired or what commands Finicum was responding to.
Additionally, one should note that there was no attempt made by the officers to provide any sort of medical assistance to Finicum.
I’ll let the viewers determine whether they believe the shooting was justified or not. At this point, we need other angles to determine whether or not Finicum was responding to being shot or whether he was actually going for a gun.
The full video shows Finicum driving from the first stop. One wonders if he was shot at, as Victoria Sharp claims.
This is the complete video footage of a joint FBI and Oregon State Police traffic stop and OSP officer-involved shooting of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. This footage, which has only been edited to blur out aircraft information, was taken by the FBI on 01/26/2016 and released by the FBI on 01/28/2016. Note regarding date/time stamp in the left corner of video: Pilots use Zulu Time, also known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), when they fly. Zulu time is eight hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time (PST). Therefore, although this footage was taken on January 26, 2016 in Oregon, the date/time stamp on the video shows just after midnight January 27, 2016.
What I find interesting is that the time stamp on the video is dated January 27, the day after Finicum was killed, and the time is after midnight. Has the video been altered? Why are sections blurred? Was this some sort of re-creation? Why is there only one woman exiting the truck? There were two inside.
The FBI’s statement on the video reads:
This is the complete video footage of a joint FBI and Oregon State Police traffic stop and OSP officer-involved shooting of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. This footage, which has only been edited to blur out aircraft information, was taken by the FBI on 01/26/2016 and released by the FBI on 01/28/2016.
Perhaps they can explain why they took the video on 01-26-2016 and the video time stamp is 01-27-2016.
I’m sure we’re going to have more questions the more the video is examined.
UPDATE: The time used in the video has been accounted for. The time setting on all military drones are for Greenwich Mean Time (ZULU), which is London UK time. That is eight hours ahead of Oregon time, so the time has been determined to be correct. (Thanks Joe!)

A few days ago Bill Warner posted a three and one-half minute teaching moment video about Jihad on his blog Political Islam. The blog title is “The Four Jihads.” The video title is “The Many Jihads.” Warner’s blog begins with the video then at the end adds some thoughts. In this cross posts I am posting Warner’s thoughts first as an introduction followed by the video.
Whenever there is Islamic violence the media uses the word “terror” not jihad. The problem is that the jihad of murder is only one of the four jihads and it is the least of jihads. The jihad of murder will kill people, but the jihad of money, speech and writing brings us closer to Sharia. Sharia annihilates a civilization.
Civilizational jihad is found in the content of our new textbooks which praise Islam as the greatest of civilizations. These new textbooks are filled with half truths, which cannot be challenged. The jihad of textbooks will destroy the thinking of a generation.
The jihad of money has invaded our universities which reject critical thought about Islam in exchange for donations from the Saudis. The Islamisation of universities is far worse than murder.
Another jihad that is killing us is found in religious dialogues. The idea sounds wonderful, but the ignorant Jews and Christians just smile and nod their heads as they agree that Islam is so wonderful. Debate is absent by consent. And another nail is driven into the coffin of our civilization.
The jihad of murder is the very least of our problems.
Islam is a cultural, religious and political system. Only the political system is of interest tokafirs(non-Muslims) since it determines how we are defined and treated. The Islamic political system is contained in theKoran, theHadith(the traditions of Mohammed) and his biography, theSira.
Political Islam has subjugated other civilizations for 1400 years. Our mission is to educate the world about political Islam, its founder Mohammed, his political doctrine and his god, Allah.
The Five Principles
Islam’s Trilogy of three sacred texts is the Koran and two books about the life of Mohammed. When the Trilogy is sorted, categorized, arranged, rewritten and analyzed, it becomes apparent that five principles are the foundation of Islam.
All of Islam is based upon the Trilogy—Koran, Sira(Mohammed’s biography) andHadith(his Traditions).
Most of the Islamic doctrine is political, not religious. Islam is a political ideology.
Islam divides the world into Muslims and unbelievers,kafirs.
I was watching Leftie Fox News contributor Alan Colmes call Fiorina a liar about her passionate disgust with of a baby aborted – I mean – murdered fully intact with the heart beating and people talking about harvesting baby’s brain. It was an abhorrent description of infanticide. So I decided to look for that video.
An unsurprising Google search turned up numerous Left Wing websites calling a Fiorina a liar just like Colmes. The fact is, after you hear a Leftist say something is a lie, it is more than likely the truth.
The truth is the video in question does not actually show an intact baby allegedly aborted but heart beating on a table. The video does show former StemExpress employee Holly O’Donnell describing the exact event that Carly Fiorina accused Planned Parenthood of at the CNN GOP Debate on Wednesday. In fact the O’Donnell description flashes to a fully baby that has the appearance of being taken from a women prematurely (as in the skin was all red) with one of the tiny precious legs have a spasm. Included with the video below is the entire Youtube description (This video is a repeat performance of an earlier cross post – “The Secret History of Planned Parenthood”):
#PPSellsBabyParts PLANNED PARENTHOOD ABORTED BABY’S HEART STILL BEATING IN LATE-TERM ORGAN HARVESTING CASE
Whistleblower Who Harvested Aborted Baby Parts Inside Planned Parenthood Clinics for StemExpress Describes “Most Difficult Experience I Had There” In Latest Documentary Episode
Contact: Peter Robbio, firstname.lastname@example.org, 703.683.5004
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19–The third episode in a new documentary web series and 7th video on Planned Parenthood’s supply of aborted fetal tissue tells a former procurement technician’s harrowing story of harvesting an intact brain from a late-term male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.
The series focuses on the personal narrative of Holly O’Donnell, a former Blood and Tissue Procurement Technician for StemExpress, a biotech start-up that until last week was partnered with two large northern California Planned Parenthood affiliates to purchase their aborted fetus parts and resell them for scientific experimentation.
O’Donnell describes the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘I want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
The San Jose Planned Parenthood does abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Referring to the beating heart of the aborted fetus, O’Donnell remarks, “I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive.”
State and federal law require that the same treatment be given to an infant born-alive after an abortion as to a normally delivered baby (1 U.S.C. 8, CA Health and Safety Code 123435). California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat (CA Health and Safety Code 123440). StemExpress has been cited in published scientific literature as a source of fetal hearts used for Langendorff perfusion, which keeps a heart beating after it is excised from the body: http://www.hindawi.com/journals/omcl/2015/730683/
O’Donnell also tells how her StemExpress supervisor instructed her to cut through the face of the fetus in order to get the brain. ““She gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face. I can’t even describe what that feels like,” she says.
The video also features recordings of Dr. Ben Van Handel, the Executive Director of Novogenix Laboratories, LLC, and also of Perrin Larton, Procurement Manager of Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR). Novogenix is the company that has harvested fetal organs from abortions done by Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, in Los Angeles, while ABR is the oldest fetal tissue procurement company and works with Planned Parenthood in San Diego and other clinics around the country. Van Handel admits, “There are times when after the procedure is done that the heart actually is still beating,” and Larton describes abortions she has seen where “the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out.”
CMP’s Project Lead David Daleiden notes, “Today’s video contains heartrending admissions about the absolute barbarism of Planned Parenthood’s abortion practice and baby parts sales in which fetuses are sometimes delivered intact and alive. Planned Parenthood is a criminal organization from the top down and should be immediately stripped of taxpayer funding and prosecuted for their atrocities against humanity.”
The Planned Parenthood history of culling the herd for a better eugenic population is quite old going all the way back to the murder clinic’s founder Margaret Sanger (The Religion of Eugenics and the State – 2011 and Nazism, Eugenics and Abortion – 2009). America’s Left, viz. the Democrat Party (wittingly or unwittingly) is a huge supporter of Planned Parenthood NOT because women’s health issues, but rather to cull the herd.
So when Leftists and Dems call Carly Fiorina a liar YOU KNOW it is disinformation to fool the masses of Leftist good intentions that are really a continuation of the transformation process Obama began inflicting America with in 2008.
Some on the left are accusing Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina of lying after she said during Wednesday night’s debate that undercover Planned Parenthood footage shows a “fully formed fetus” alive on a table as “someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.”
Slate flatly accused Fiorina of “lying” after she directly challenged Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama to watch the videos, while a writer at Refinery29 dismissed Fiorina’s “graphic” and “upsetting” claims as “totally made-up.”
The debate is noteworthy given the general consensus that Fiorina’s excoriating comments were among her strongest moments during the debate.
“Anyone who has watched this video tape — I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the able, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain,” Fiorina said. “This is about the character of our nation. And if we will not stand up and force President Obama to veto this bill, then shame on us.”
Slate writer Amanda Marcotte correctly noted that the publicly released undercover footage released by the anti-abortion Center for Medical Ethics does not show such a scene, writing that there are no images of babies “kicking or hearts beating.” Vox reporter Sarah Kliff also declared that Fiorina was “wrong,” noting that she watched all 12 hours of released footage and never saw such a thing.
However, Fiorina was not concocting the story out of thin air; most of the details that she described were recounted in an accompanying mini-documentary series also produced by the Center for Medical Progress.
Holly O’Donnell, a former blood and tissue procurement technician, described in the Center for Medical Progress’ “Human Capital” documentary series how she once saw the heart of a baby still beating after an abortion.
“[The] episode tells a former procurement technician’s harrowing story of harvesting an intact brain from a late-term male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion,” a press release accompanying the video’s release last month stated.
The majority of the documentary — the seventh video released overall by the Center for Medical Progress — focused on O’Donnell recounting how she was once asked to help procure brain tissue from a fetus, an experience she said shook her to her core.
“Since the fetus was so intact [my coworker] said, ‘This is a really good fetus, and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure brain,’” O’Donnell says in the video. “She takes the scissors and she makes a small incision … and goes, I would say to maybe a little bit through the mouth, and she was like, ‘OK, can you go the rest of the way?’”
Watch the video below(caution — graphic): [Blog Editor: I am not showing video as The Blaze story does because it can be viewed above.]
No images from the incident O’Donnell described were shown; however, there are other photos and clips interspersed throughout the video that feature late-term and stillborn fetuses.
One of those photos caused some critics to object last month that the Center for Medical Progress was misleading viewers: it showed an image of a stillborn baby as O’Donnell described the brain procurement procedure. Kliff described it as “stock footage.”
The image of the stillborn baby, Walter Fretz, who was born at 19 weeks, was originally included without any notation about where the photo came from; his mother has since said that she did not agree with the use of her son’s image by the Center for Medical Progress, according to the Christian Post.
At another point in the documentary, footage of a different fetus was interspersed, seemingly for effect, as O’Donnell described in a voice-over the features of the fetus from which she procured brain tissue. As she spoke of the baby’s facial features, video rolled of a late-term fetus moving its limbs, with a credit that read, “Courtesy of Grantham Collection & Center for Bio-Ethical Reform.”
Mollie Hemingway speculated in the Federalist that Fiorina was speaking broadly about the 10 videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, noting that the seventh video featuring O’Donnell “does, in fact, show a fully formed fetus, heart beating and legs licking.”
Other videos in the series did feature the remains of deceased fetuses inside pathology labs as well.
Fiorina appeared on “Good Morning America” on Thursday morning to discuss her debate performance, doubling down on her claims about Planned Parenthood, while pushing back against some of her critics.
“I didn’t misspeak … . This kind of butchery erodes the character of our nation,” Fiorina said. ”Rest assured, I have seen the images I talked about last night. Rest assured that human lives are being aborted fully formed in order to harvest body parts.”
David Daleiden, the project lead for the Center for Medical Progress, told TheBlaze in a statement that “the footage in question was from Grantham Collection & Center for Bio-Ethical Reform used to illustrate the first person eye witness testimony of Holly O’Donnell of the barbaric acts committed inside Planned Parenthood abortion facilities.”
“Planned Parenthood and their supporters are afraid to watch and talk about this footage because it shows their illicit baby parts trade for what it really is: the industrial-scale commodification and exploitation of tiny human beings,” Daleiden said.
Blog Editor: I was alerted via email from LifeNews.com that the House has passed legislation to hold Planned Parenthood criminally liable for selling body parts from harvest still alive babies.
House Passes Bill to Hold Planned Parenthood Criminally Liable for Harvesting Aborted Babies Still Alive
The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, sponsored by pro-life Congressman Trent Franks would make failure to provide standard medical care to children born alive during an abortion a federal crime. It would also apply stronger penalties in cases where an overt act is taken to kill the abortion survivor.
Under the pro-life bill there is also a civil right of action for mothers of children who survive an abortion to hold the abortion provider accountable.
Congressman Chris Smith implored the House to pass the bill.
“Undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress have again brought into sharp focus that some babies actually survive abortion,” the New jersey congressman said. ”
Dr. Savita Ginde, Medical Director of Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains says “sometimes we get—if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure—they are intact…” that is, Madame Speaker, born alive. Breathing, crying, gasping for air. One fetal tissue broker describes on the video watching a “fetus …just fall out.” And left to die.”
“We have a duty to protect these vulnerable children from violence, exploitation and death. Humanitarian due diligence requires that born alive babies be taken to a hospital to obtain care and enhance prospects of survival,” Smith added. “Abortion clinics have no incentive whatsoever to save the child. Abortion clinics do not have neonatal intensive care units—they are in the business of killing babies, not saving them.”
“The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 3504), authored by pro-life champion Trent Franks simply says any child who survives an abortion must be given the same care as any other premature baby born at the same gestational age. This legislation builds on the landmark Born Alive Infant Protection Act of 2002 authored by Steve Chabot by adding important enforcement provisions,” he concluded.
The House voted 248 to 177 for the bill with 239 Republicans voting for the bill and 5 Democrats joining them. No Republicans voted against the pro-life bill while 177 Democrats voted against it. One member voted present.
A rpo-life sneator (sic) says he will introduce the Senate version of the bill on Monday. Senator Ben Sasse told LifeNews.com that he will introduce companion legislation in the Senate when Congress resumes its work on Monday.
He said: “If this isn’t the most non-controversial sentence in American politics, it’s time to check our national conscience: newborn babies must receive care and attention. Societies are judged by how we care for the vulnerable and surely anyone with a heart— regardless of where they stand on the abortion debate— should be able to agree that our laws should protect newborns. I’m grateful that a bipartisan majority of the House stood up for babies and I look forward to introducing companion legislation in the Senate next week.”
Despite passage of the bill, the Obama administration says President Barack Obama would veto the measure. The position statement explaining the opposition to the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act says the pro-life bill “would impose new legal requirements related to the provision of abortion services in certain circumstances, which would likely have a chilling effect, reducing access to care.”
As pro-life Congressman Chris Smith explains, this has Obama on record once again opposing care for babies born alive who survive abortions. Obama clearly either believes that killing babies after they are born is a reasonable part of an abortion or he fears that abortion companies like Planned Parenthood would stop doing abortions before they would be willing to comply with a requirement to save the babies that survive them.
“Late yesterday the President demonstrated that his subservience to Planned Parenthood is absolute and without question,” said Smith. “Blindly following the orders of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the country, the President issued an extreme unequivocal statement that he would veto the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, a bill that simply says a child that survives an abortion must be given the same care as any other premature baby born at the same gestational age and forbidding acts of lethal violence against such babies.”
Smith told LifeNews.com: “We are talking about babies that have been BORN ALIVE and are separate from their mothers,” Smith said. “Yet President Obama’s extreme obsession with promoting abortion doesn’t stop with killing unborn children. Even abortion survivors are not safe from this President and Planned Parenthood. Can we not treat these tiny infants as a person—as patients? According to the Abortion President and the largest abortion provider in the nation, the answer is a resounding NO.
Smith continued: “These extreme statements demonstrate just who we are dealing with in the White House, but the question remains. Will Members of the House and Senate follow the lead of the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood? Or will they at least draw a line at infanticide and vote for a law protect abortion survivors and ensure people like Kermit Gosnell who kill babies who survive abortions are prosecuted and brought to justice?”
In the video CMP released exposing how Planned Parenthood harvests organs from babies who are still alive, the video features Holly O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012. That’s the company that acts as a middleman and purchases the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood to sell to research universities and other places. StemExpress was partnered with Planned Parenthood up until last week, when it quietly announced it ended its relationship with the abortion corporation.
The video includes O’Donnell’s eyewitness narrative of the daily practice of fetal body parts harvesting in Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. She tells the harrowing story of harvesting an intact brain from a late-term male unborn baby whose heart was still beating after the abortion.
O’Donnell describes the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term baby aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, California.
The procurement of body parts from aborted babies who are still alive is a violation of the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, a pro-life bill President George W. Bush signed into law to protect unborn babies who survive abortions. Now, Congress wants to add teeth to that law to make it so Planned Parenthood or other abortion companies would be held criminally liable for breaking the law.
The National Right to Life Committee provided LifeNews a detailed analysis of the groundbreaking new pro-life legislation, H.R. 3504. The information comes in the form of a letter from top NRLC officials to members of Congress urging a vote for the bill.
In 2002, Congress approved, without a dissenting vote, the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (BAIPA), subsequently signed into law by President George W. Bush and codified as 1 U.S.C. §8. This important law states that “every infant member of the species homo sapiens who is born alive at any stage of development” is a “person” for all federal law purposes. The bill defines “born alive” in terms of explicit criteria – “complete expulsion from his or her mother . . . at any stage of development, who after such expulsion or extraction breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut, and regardless of whether the expulsion or extraction occurs as a result of natural or induced labor, cesarean section, or induced abortion.”
The BAIPA was a response to troubling indications, well summarized in the House Judiciary Committee’s excellent 2001 report on the legislation, that some abortion providers and pro-abortion activists did not regard infants born alive during abortion procedures as legal persons – especially if the infants were deemed to be “pre-viable” (i.e., have limited life expectancy due to prematurity). Such a mindset puts a substantial number of live-born infant persons in jeopardy of gross neglect or overt violence. Live birth, as defined in 1 U.S.C. §8, may occur a month before “viability.” BAIPA made it crystal clear that life expectancy is entirely irrelevant for purposes of legal personhood.
However, in the years since 1 U.S.C. §8 was enacted, evidences have multiplied that some abortion providers do not regard babies born alive during abortions as persons, and do not provide them with the types of care that would be provided to premature infants who are born spontaneously. In some cases, such born-alive infants are even subjected to overt acts of deadly violence. In 2013, Dr. Kermit Gosnell of Philadelphia was convicted under state law of multiple homicides of such born-alive infants, but such a prosecution and conviction is uncommon. In some jurisdictions, local authorities seem reluctant to investigate reports of infants born alive during abortions, or to bring appropriate indictments even in cases in which the publicly reported evidence of gross neglect or overt lethal acts seems strong.
Public concern has been increased by a recent series of hidden-camera videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, in which various persons described events and practices within certain Planned Parenthood abortion clinics that, at the very least, raise questions about whether it is generally recognized among abortion-clinic personnel that a born-alive baby is a legal “person,” whether before or after “viability.” Other passages raise similar questions regarding some persons who operate firms that obtain and sell baby body parts, obtained from abortion clinics.
National Right to Life believes that it is time for Congress to act decisively to put the entire abortion industry on notice that when they treat a born-alive human person as medical waste, as a source for organ harvesting, or as a creature who may be subjected to lethal violence with impunity, they will do so at grave legal peril. H.R. 3504 would enact an explicit requirement that a baby born alive during an abortion must be afforded “the same degree” of care that would apply “to any other child born alive at the same gestational age,” including transportation to a hospital. This language does not dictate bona fide medical judgments nor require futile measures, but rather, requires that babies born alive during abortions are treated in the same manner as those who are spontaneously born prematurely. This language is based on very similar provisions contained within H.R. 36, passed by the House of Representatives on May 13, 2015.
In addition, the bill applies the existing penalties of 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1111 (the federal murder statute) to anyone who performs “an overt act that kills a child born alive.” This would apply, for example, to an abortion clinic staff person who dissects a breathing born-alive infant in order to harvest an intact liver, or to an abortionist who ends a born-alive baby’s whimpers with a sharp blow to the skull, or by snipping the spine.
In addition, the bill provides a civil cause of action to women who are harmed by violations of the act. The civil action provisions are similar to language in H.R. 36.

Murder, in criminal law, is the unjustified killing of one person by another, usually distinguished from man-slaughter by the element of malice aforethought.
Most states distinguish between murder in the first degree and murder in the second degree with capital punishment limited to crimes of clear intent.
If I as a citizen of the United States have some person threatening my life style, through no fault of their own, and I, after much planning and deliberation, kill that person to rid myself of the threat, have committed murder in the first degree.
In all probability, after a trial by a jury of my peers, I will receive a sentence, which could be life imprisonment or even death.
It has been determined by scientists and the Supreme Court that life begins at conception.
So we now come to abortion!!
Abortion- an induced expulsion of a fetus accompanied by or followed by the death of the fetus.
When a woman finds she is pregnant, it is definitely a threat to her life style.
She now has two options, she can carry the child inside her to term or she can have an abortion.
It does not take a scholar or a genius to know that an abortion takes a great deal of thought and planning.
So the question arises, has the woman that opts to have an abortion committed a premeditated [first-degree] murder?
Has the doctor that preformed the killing of an innocent child committed first-degree murder?
