CONGRESS CONTINUES WAR ON DISCREDITED "SELLING BABY PARTS" VIDEOS
SELECT COMMITTEE FOLLOWS UP ON PREVIOUS FAILURES
Washington Post Headline Today:
"COLORADO: Clinic Where Gunman Killed 3 Resumes Work"
|ROBERT LEWIS DEAR|
You might recall that following the revelations that Planned Parenthood was selling baby parts for profit, Robert Lewis Dear exercised his Constitutionally Guaranteed rights of personal responsibility and individual initiative to murder three folks at a Colorado Springs women's clinic and injure nine others. He's been charged with 179 criminal counts including murder, attempted murder and assault. Mr. Dear apparently waxed righteously indignant and inflamed and was enraged to act because the Center for Medical Progress had secretly filmed Planned Parenthood workers engaged in selling baby parts for profit.
Recall, also, that when this controversy erupted, the House of Representatives immediately empaneled a committee to thoroughly investigate the shocking charges by calling a single witness, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards and mistakenly attributed false documents as coming from Planned Parenthood's files when they were actually from a national Right To Life group. The curious lapse in thoroughness extended to the failure of the House Committee to call a single other witness, including David Daleiden creator of the damning videos or anyone else from the Center for Medical Progress, the bogus organization Dadeidan set up to catch Planned Parenthood in the act of selling baby parts for profit.
Of course the allegations of Daleiden, the Center for Medical Progress and House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform Chairman, Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) have been thoroughly and endlessly debunked as false even though Republican Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina (former HP destructress) continues to believe that the videos - and one other that she claims to have viewed over lunch one day - show the selling of baby parts for profit even after dropping out of the Presidential race.
But never let it be said that the House of Representatives isn't hard at work every day protecting our vital interests and getting to the rock bottom depths of truth in the selling of the baby parts issue as a domestic counterpoint to the continuing investigations into the four dead Americans who still live in the world of political stupidity Republicans inhabit today.
Here's one of this morning's WASHPO headlines:
"Broad Subpoenas Issued in Fetal-Tissue Inquiry"
NOTE: "Fetal-Tissue" is polite speak for "the selling of baby parts for profit."
In a curious turn of events (well, curious if you are not Carly Fiorina or House Representative Chaffetz (R-UT) or Rush Limbaugh) David Daleiden and one of his Center for Medical Progress sidies have been indicted for fraud by a Texas Grand Jury empanelled to examine Planned Parenthood's selling of baby parts. (LOL! Those wily liberal Democrats in Austin apparently took the Constitution into their own hands and exercised their rights of personal responsibility and individual initiative - Gotta Love 'Em!)
Well, apparently the workings of the Red State Texas judicial system does not impress the United States House of Representative where an additional committee has been empanelled to get to the bottom of the selling of baby parts for profit not only by Planned Parenthood but by everyone else in the entire country. (I doubt that the House has any authority to investigate such practices in Canada, Mexico and Latvia but, hey, wouldn't this be a great idea?) One Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), the head of the Select House Panel on the Selling of Baby Parts, is quoted as declaring:
"You have these precious children that are aborted and then these parts are being sold. People want to give this a good and thorough look."
I congratulate Representative Blackburn from Tennessee for her careful language smithing since she is correct, Planned Parenthood and presumably other abortion providers do "sell parts from aborted fetuses" Which is perfectly legal. So she's on solid ground with her statement. What Federal law prohibits is the selling of fetal tissue for profit.
But in order to satisfy the peoples' interest in giving this issue a "good and thorough look," to ensure that this happens, (this time around) the Select Panel has issued subpoenas to more than 30 agencies, individuals and organizations for documents from the likes of StemExpress who prepares fetal tissue to pass on to researchers, Southwestern Women's Options, an abortion clinic in Albuquerque, and the University of New Mexico, where fetal tissue research is undertaken. The January 6, 2016 subpoenas included requests for a broad range of information: the request to the University of New Mexico seeks a wide range of records in 19 categories, including a list of entities with which the university has exchanged fetal tissue; an organizational chart listing all personnel dealing with that tissue; laboratory equipment records; assorted banking, accounting and tax records; copies of various university policies and guidelines; and communications with local, state and federal officials.
Overall, about half of the 30 subpoenas have gone to academic institutions because we all know that all of our colleges and universities are simply hotbed generators of Liberal/Communist indoctrination and brainwashing. Of course, I suppose this is far more important than filling a vacant seat on the Supreme Court in the fantasy world that Republicans inhabit.
On Friday, Blackburn (R-TN) defended the breadth of the document requests and said the names are necessary to develop a “complete picture” of the fetal tissue trade. “I think they fully understand what we are seeking,” she said. “If they’re not going to work with us, we’re going to have to come at this a different way.”
Blackburn said that after months in the shadows, (who knew?) the panel’s work will soon go public. Its first hearing is set for early March; the subject and the witnesses who will be invited have not been determined. “This is focused on infant lives, and we are going to go at it,” she said.
Personally, I can't wait for the hearings to start. I'm hopeful that, like the Cecile Richards combo witch hunt and smear campaign conducted by Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Representative Blackburn's efforts to get to the bottom of the "selling of baby parts for profit" issue raised by fake doctored videos, created by a fake medical organization, enabled by David Daleiden's fake documents and buttressed by fake official exhibits displayed at the prior House Committee on Government Operations and Reform that resulted in the murder of three people at a Colorado Springs abortion clinic, finally exposes the truth about the "selling of baby parts for profit" that seems to be going on all across the land we call America.
Frankly, I find it rather disturbing that Congress is not only wasting time and money on this issue, but is responding to a thoroughly debunked, discredited, feloneously ginned up controversy that has no more place in the real world's reality than Dorothy in the "Wizard of Oz" clicking her red heeled shoes together and whisking herself back to Kansas.
Any more questions about why Congress has a lower approval rating than "The Joker" in the Batman movie series?
PS: Try substituting the term "Jew" for "Planned Parenthood" in my post and see what you come up with. Me? Shades of Goebbels and Hitler. But that's just me and my overheated liberal brain. I guess.
