A physician who performed late term abortion was murdered at his church today in Wichita, KS. Before the blood dried on the floor of the church, the left-O-sphere pundits were handing sentences of guilt to the Christian right. Left wing gasbags and men are already politicizing the murder of Dr. Tiller to promote the leftist agenda of censoring those that have different ideas.
The murderer of Tiller will face justice, I remind my readers that we are a nation bound by the rule of law. To use this cold blooded murder to pursue destructive political points is sickening, but not unexpected by the left.
American Power has the compilation of reactions from Anti Christian blogs:
Unbelievable! Leftists really do believe in “therapeutic” abortions! Here’s Amanda “FUCK YOU” Marcotte [speaking of gasbags]: “Odds are pretty strong the murderer is a forced childbirth terrorist, out to kill the doctor who focused his practice on providing therapeutic abortions to women later in their pregnancy than most abortion providers can or will service.”
Jonn Lilyea lays out some measured reality regarding the abortion debate:
See, I don’t wade into the abortion discussion often because of the irrational conversations that it spawns. Abortion is wrong, and you know what – everyone on the planet knows it’s wrong, regardless of their religious beliefs or the lack thereof. That’s why the pro-abortion side gets so irrational – they know there’s no real defense for killing unborn babies. But I also oppose the death penalty – I don’t believe in government sponsored killing and abortion has become government-sponsored killing.
A republican with a proven blueprint to cut waste and balance budgets without raising taxes. This is the alternative the Obama Dems claim does not exist. There is a better way to protect our economy than raising taxes or spending our way out of debt:
“But Pawlenty has always advocated fiscal responsibility, even when Republicans in Washington were faltering on that issue. When Pawlenty was first elected governor in 2002, Minnesota faced a $4.5 billion deficit. He helped turn that into a $2.2 billion surplus without raising taxes.
But the fiscal conservative is also a bit of a populist, so he might not fit any of the Sunday talk-show molds being espoused for the GOP. Pawlenty has urged Republicans to reach out, become “the party of Sam’s Club, not just the country club.” This son of a truck driver is comfortable pushing education reform, a clean environment, and energy independence. To lower health-care costs, he backed the importation of prescription drugs from Canada, even though the Bush White House insisted the drugs couldn’t be proved safe. Pawlenty famously replied, “Show me the dead Canadians.”
And now, amid the worst fiscal crisis in decades, Pawlenty again rejects business as usual. Instead, he will try to do the responsible thing that governors and lawmakers from Trenton to Harrisburg to Sacramento have deemed impossible: cut the budget – not just reduce the growth of spending – without raising taxes.
It may seem radical to some, but Pawlenty is merely applying the same budgeting principle to government that families use every day: If there’s less income, you cut spending. The focus is on what you have to have, rather than what’s nice to have, as former presidential candidate Mitt Romney put it in his endorsement last week of Christopher J. Christie, the front-runner in the GOP primary for New Jersey governor.”
Pravda – these guys know a thing or two about Marxism:
It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
President Palin is going to have her hands full fixing the mess she will inherit from Obama.

Justice Department political appointees overruled career lawyers and ended a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense of wielding a nightstick and intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place last Election Day, according to documents and interviews.
The incident – which gained national attention when it was captured on videotape and distributed on YouTube – had prompted the government to sue the men, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring would-be voters with the weapon, racial slurs and military-style uniforms.
Career lawyers pursued the case for months, including obtaining an affidavit from a prominent 1960s civil rights activist who witnessed the confrontation and described it as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen, even during the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.
Eric Holder labeled America as a nation of cowards – I assume he included his own DOJ in that sweeping assessment.
Speaking of cowardice – La Raza member and Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, apparently is backtracking on her previous statement “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”
Pett Secretary Gibbs assumes that would she would do just that:
Obama’s top spokesman, Robert Gibbs, told reporters about Sotomayor: “I think she’d say that her word choice in 2001 was poor.” Gibbs, however, said he did not hear that from Sotomayor directly. He said he learned it from people who had talked to her, and he did not identify who those people were.
I am so disappointed in her! Sonia had no problem speaking those words in 2001, she should proudly stand by them in 2009 AO. She should never hide the fact that her career is a vehicle to put her race and gender above what is required to perform her job adequately. There is no shame in singling out a specific race and sex for promotion above others, right? I strongly urge her to stay true to her convictions and shout them to the world. Let your La Raza flag fly, Sonia!
He told Planned Parenthood that his first act as president would be to sign an abortion rights bill into law; now he says it is “not my highest legislative priority.” He promised gay rights advocates that he would work for the repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, but he has pushed action into the future. A proponent of transparency, he released previously classified memos describing the C.I.A.’s harsh interrogation techniques. But then he moved to block the release of photos showing abuse of detainees — a 180-degree turn from his administration’s previous position.
On all these fronts, Mr. Obama and his aides have offered detailed explanations of the factors that shape his decision-making. So far, the public seems on board. But in a sound-bite culture, there are limits to how much nuance the public can absorb.
Speaking of flip flopping and moral spinelessness – it seems the webmaster/mistress of ccdemocrats.com – a blog registered to Karen McCool – is attempting to cover its tracks by scrubbing the title of a recent post and claiming no knowledge of this offensive term.
It is quite clear my illumination of the title ‘Tea-bagged?‘ has driven the recent wordsmithing of the title. Without my intervention, that title would have remained as permanent insult to women and gays. It is apparent this Democrat administration is no friend of gay rights advocates – why should acolytes of this administration in West Chester behave differently?

Hmmm….closed comments is a great way to promote open discussion..
At a White House conference earlier this year on the government’s budget problems, a roomful of tax experts pleaded with Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner to consider a VAT. A recent flurry of books and papers on the subject is attracting genuine, if furtive, interest in Congress. And last month, after wrestling with the White House over the massive deficits projected under Obama’s policies, the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee declared that a VAT should be part of the debate.
“There is a growing awareness of the need for fundamental tax reform,” Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) said in an interview. “I think a VAT and a high-end income tax have got to be on the table.”
A VAT is a tax on the transfer of goods and services that ultimately is borne by the consumer. Highly visible, it would increase the cost of just about everything, from a carton of eggs to a visit with a lawyer. It is also hugely regressive, falling heavily on the poor.
