12 Year-Old Makes Powerful Pro-Life Video Presentation

This is a situation in which no amount of comments would do justice to the information and common sense that this young lady provides for us.

"When 12-year-old Lia wanted to speak out against abortion for her school’s speech competition a few years ago, her pro-choice teacher disqualified her, claiming that the topic was too controversial. However, once she heard the speech and realized Lia’s amazing command of the topic, she changed her mind. Lia went on to win the entire competition......."

Previous posts/links:

"......"A pregnant Texas teenager is suing her parents to stop them from forcing her to abort her unborn child.

Click2Houston reports a judge issued a temporary restraining order to prevent the abortion while the case is ongoing. 

The 16-year-old, who is identified only by the initials R.E.K. because she is a minor, claims in the lawsuit her parents are coercing her to abort her 9-week-old fetus through both verbal and physical threats and harassment.....................

When a pregnancy occurs, we then apply the "make the problem go away" technique. To avoid the feeling of embarrassment in front of other parents, the possible (temporary) suspension of education of the youth, and the grind of having to assist in child care, we take the easy way out. That way we can get back to our trouble-free lives.

The life of the child and the possible emotional trauma to the mother-to-be* are conveniently ignored.

*Although the Left has worked with a vengeance in doctoring studies to create contrary conclusions, the reality is that abortion is by no means a emotional trauma-free experience:


We have deluded ourselves into thinking that we can make all the bad and discomfiting things disappear and that the result will be as if nothing happened in the first place.

What we want is a a society utterly free of consequences. We want to be able to bury our heads in the sand, ignore what our kids are doing, and be free of any unpleasant outcome.........."

Alan Dershowitz Offers Legal Help to State-Seized Girl and Her Family

This a brief follow-up to the following posts:

I don't like Alan Dershowitz one bit. It would be more accurate, though, to say that I detest him. I find him to be a strong supporter of the Leftist agenda. He also is known for being patently dishonest about his opinions. It was he who infamously pretended to believe that the Supreme Court decision following the disputed Florida electoral votes in the Bush- Gore election was the worst decision since Dred Scott. Again proving that he had no concern for his credibility, he later described the decision that ended the  legal battle for the recount (in which the Gore team moved to suppress military absentee votes for that state) as “the single most corrupt decision in Supreme Court history.”

I will however, give credit where credit is due. I hold that is is even more important to do so when an enemy is doing what is right. I hope that his offer is accepted by the Pelletier family and that he can do something to have this case put back on the right track.

Good for him.

Part of me pictures Dershowitz as a committed Marxist who nevertheless acts as a dissident against a state that abuses its power far more than even Socialism normally allows. I see him as one of the Soviet intellectuals who would get sent to prison or subjected to psychiatric treatment at the hands of the state yet never gives up his childlike attachment to Leftist thought.

"Prominent attorney Alan Dershowitz is offering to help the parents of 15-year-old Justina Pelletierreclaim custody of their daughter.
“I’d like to help out…” the Harvard Law professor and media figure said during an appearance on “Huckabee” Saturday night, noting he’s a member of the Massachusetts bar and could offer his legal expertise.

“When you hear about a case like this you scratch your head and you say ‘something else must be going on,’” he noted........................."

[See above links for the background of the case]

"Dershowitz cautioned that he’s not certain where Justina would get the best care or who is “right,” but added that “under our legal system when there’s a conflict between medical opinion, the parents get to resolve that for a 15-year-old, not the state.”

“The gag order is clearly unconstitutional,” he also insisted. “You can’t stop parents form bringing a petition about their grievances” to anyone.

Dershowitz added that if what the parents are saying is true, then the Pelletier case is a “horrible abuse of human rights, of civil liberties.”

Armenian Christian Town in Syria Sacked - Churches Destroyed

The war monger extraordinaire John McCain would be beaming with satisfaction -

Typing "Syria" in the search bar in the upper-right of this page will yield several earlier posts on the plight of Christians in Syria.

"Radical Islamist rebels have seized a predominantly Christian town in northwest Syria in recent days and reportedly destroyed crosses on churches, pillaged homes and beheaded at least one opponent in a neighboring area, according to accounts conveyed from Syria on social media.

According to various media accounts, rebels from the Al Qaeda-affiliated Al-Nusra Front, Ahrah al Sham, the Islamic Front and Chechen jihadists on Sunday gained control over Kassab, a town of 1,700 residents who are mostly Armenian Christians who now fear for their future there.

The Christian Broadcasting Network reported that 80 people have been killed and at least three churches desecrated as Syrian Christians have all but abandoned the town.

Syrian Armenian community activist Nerses Sarkissian told Armenian Weekly that the rebels are desecrating churches, pillaging houses and destroying government buildings.................."

[There are a number of photos of the destruction in the link at top]

"Another photo purported to show the head of a Syrian army soldier fighting to defend President Bashar Assad’s rule who was allegedly decapitated outside Latakia near Kassab. The link to the photo can be found (WARNING — graphic image) here. " [The photo is a gruesome sight]..........................................

"Armenian Weekly reported that almost all of the Christians have emptied the town and fled to neighboring Latakia. They are now beset with fear about their ability to return to their homes.........."

I don't think that returning home will be an option for these Christians. The Islamists are intent on chasing them out of the region. They also have no desire to allow them move back into their homes and begin using their churches. What the Islamists want is the rule of Islam.

As I noted is previous posts, the "moderates" - even the ones that truly deserve that description, are not strong enough to keep the Islamists at bay. Any region that is lost by the Syrian government is likely to fall into the hands of the radicals in short order. 

The Western world is paralyzed by the Left. The latter has such an appreciation for anything that opposes Christianity and Judaism (as well as the concept of sovereign nations/peoples) that they have set out to control all discussion about the conflict. So Orwellian is the language of the Left that one commentator actually pretended to believe that a death from nerve agent (which in time appeared to be the work of the rebels) was far worse than a young girl (who had firstly been gang-raped for weeks) being beheaded by the rebels. 

".......“I can barely contain myself at this point. … How many more times do we have to say that weapons of mass destruction were used and as bad as it is to decapitate somebody it is in no means equal?,” she rhetorically asked.

Note that Christiane Amanpour employs the timeworn method of proving her point by references to claims that are now held suspect by - if not most, at least many, using the false assumption that quantity equals quality (and credibility).  "How many more times do we have to say..." proves precisely nothing. Like a Christian Fundamentalist who slings Bible verses en masse, despite their actual meaning or context, in the hopes of winning by sheer volume, Amanpour tries to get people to forget that chemical weapons may well have been used by the side that the US is not proposing to attack. She also tries to cloud the picture by conflating the situation in Syria with other conflicts. Neither the horrors of the slaughters in Rwanda, nor shameful indifference that the world displayed towards the plight of people in that nation, can be compared in any way with the Syrian conflict or our current decision-making, but Amanpour hopes that we won't notice her ruse. Note that she cares so little about the Christians and other non-Sunnis in Syria that she wants to whip Americans into a frenzy to call for actions that will result in even more violence for an already terribly suffering minority]...."

US Boys v. Russian Boys

The more physically secure a nation becomes, the more that Moms coddle their boys and the more the Dads relinquish child-rearing decision making to their wives.

Our boys are soft. They are not allowed to play with toy guns at home let alone even pretend to do the same at school. They rarely do go outside to play, but plant themselves in their rooms and play video games.

When Rome could no longer afford to pay mercenaries to their fighting for them, their men were many generations removed from the sturdy types who against all odds won Italy and went on to conquer the known world. In 410 AD, Alaric led his Visigoths to the gates that defied Hannibal over six hundred years earlier. Upon hearing his demands, which were surprisingly moderate, the city delegation asked what would be left of them.

Alaric's laconic reply was typical of one of a primitive Indo-European culture:

Your lives

"The way that boys are raised in Russia is very different from how boys are raised in the United States. In Russia, boys as young as five years old are taught survival skills, learn how to use military equipment and are trained in hand to hand combat.

Boys as young as twelve are taught to fire assault rifles and some of them even get to experience real paratrooper training. In the United States, on the other hand, we tend to baby our boys. They become experts in skills such as ordering fast food, playing video games and ogling women. In many cases, American boys never even learn how to act like men, and that becomes glaringly apparent once they grow up. So in the long run, which nation do you think will be better off – Russia or America?

By nature, men are hunters. We are not meant to be cooped up indoors all day long. We were created with an inner desire for adventure and activity.

The Russians understand this. In Russia, boys are raised to be strong, physical and active. There are “military sports clubs” that train young boys in the skills that I mentioned in the opening paragraph. The Daily Mail recently posted an article that examined one of these clubs known as Berkut (Golden Eagle)…

Children as young a five are sent on forced marches, given battlefield training, taught hand to hand combat, and how to use military equipment. 12 year olds are also taught how to fire Kalashnikov assault rifles and other small arms.

During the clubs regular camps, some children are given the opportunity to parachute jump during their paratrooper training.

When you were young, wouldn’t you have liked to have had the chance to do a parachute jump?

I know that it would have forced me to grow up a lot faster.

Self-discipline and maturity don’t happen by accident. They require training. And the Russians understand this…........................

Just consider the following facts…

1. The average young American will spend 10,000 hours playing video games before the age of 21.

2. One study discovered that 88 percent of all Americans from age 8 to age 18 play video games, and that approximately four times as many boys are addicted to video games as girls are.

3. Average SAT scores have been falling for years, and the level of education that our kids are receiving in most of our public schools is a total joke.

4. According to a survey conducted by the National Geographic Society, only 37 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 24-year-old age bracket can find the nation of Iraq on a map.

5. Only 26 percent of Oklahoma high school students know what the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution are called.

6. Only 10 percent of Oklahoma high school students know how many justices sit on the Supreme Court.

7. At this point, 15-year-olds that attend U.S. public schools do not even rank in the top half of all industrialized nations when it comes to math or science literacy.

8. The average American drinks more than 600 sodas every single year. That is by far the most in the world.

9. Back in 1962, only 13 percent of all Americans were obese. Right now, approximately 36 percent of all Americans are obese, and it is being projected that number will rise to 42 percent by 2030.

10. The United States has the highest divorce rate on the globe by a wide margin. This is ripping millions of families with children to shreds.

11. There are more than 3 million reports of child abuse in the United States every single year.

12. At this point, approximately one out of every three children in the United States lives in a home without a father.

13. Children in the United States are three times more likely to be prescribed antidepressants as children in Europe are.

14. An astounding 30 percent of all Internet traffic now goes to pornography websites, and the U.S. produces more pornography than any other nation has in the history of the world.

15. The average high school boy spends two hours watching pornography every single week.

16. America has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the developed world.

17. According to the latest figures released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, there are 20 million new sexually-transmitted infections in the United States every single year, and Americans in the 15 to 24-year-old age range account for approximately 50 percent of those new sexually-transmitted infections.

18. At this point, one out of every four teen girls in the U.S. has at least one sexually transmitted disease.

Things would be far different if we had raised our children differently.

We have removed traditional values and morality as much as possible from the educational environment, and we have taught our young people that they are just animals that are a little more highly evolved than other animals...........................

Our boys certainly deserve better.

EPA Moves for Massive Increase on Their Authority over Land and Water

As I have noted in previous posts ( use page search bar for "Agenda 21") Western Socialism is not in a big hurry to engage in outright seizures of private property. These things are messy, and Leftists learned that collective lands are terribly unproductive compared to private property, which is worked and cared for by individuals who have a real interest or stake on the land.

The key element of the plan for Western Socialists is to allow private property but to have massive control over it, with the most power exercised by regulatory bodies that are not bound by the same rules as are the police. Restrictions will (and are) be put in place that make it very difficult for any but the most wealthy (or corporations) to own property. Standards for single-family housing lots, for example, will ensure that only the wealthy can afford either the minimum lot size or the Carbon Credits to live anywhere other than apartment buildings.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has authority over actual bodies of water, however small they may be. Many US lakes and rivers were horrorshows of pollution for decades, with some only having been in a state of recovery for twenty years. To claim authority over a body of water, the EPA had the burden of proof; they needed to demonstrate that the lake, pond or river/stream had water least somewhat year-round.

For them, that was too much of a burden and gave them far to little control. What they now want to is to have control over any water, even if a small depression fills up with water for a few days during the drenching rains of spring, or the rivulets that form from the same heavy downpours. If they are successful  front and backyards in well over half of the US will be fair game for them. Homeowners, farmers, and small businesses will be subjected to the diktat of the bureaucrat. The latter will be able to stroll in, take a look, and tell the owner that he has to remove a shed near the small but dry gully, and the hole in the backyard that was created by the uprooted tree will result in an order to cease and desist from using fertilizer on the lawn or pesticides around the foundation of the house:

"In what critics are describing as a government land grab, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed a change Tuesday to the Clean Water Act that would give it regulatory authority over temporary wetlands and waterways.
The proposal immediately sparked concerns that the regulatory power could extend into seasonal ponds, streams and ditches, including those on private property.

"The ... rule may be one of the most significant private property grabs in U.S. history," said Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, the top Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

The EPA proposal would apply pollution regulations to the country's so-called "intermittent and ephemeral streams and wetlands" -- which are created during wet seasons, or simply after it rains, but are temporary.

At issue is whether the smaller streams and wetlands are indeed part of the "waters of the United States."

The Supreme Court ruled on the issue in 2001 and 2006. The second ruling restricted the federal government's authority by stating such waters must be "relatively" permanent or continuously flowing and sizeable, like "oceans, rivers, streams and lakes."..................

They also argued such waters "form the foundation of the nation's water resources" and the changes would not extend the federal government's reach. "To be clear, our proposal does not add to or expand the scope of the waters historically protected under the Clean Water Act," EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said in a video accompanying the announcement........

However, Vitter accused the EPA of "picking and choosing" its science while trying to "take another step toward outright permitting authority over virtually any wet area in the country."

He also warned the proposed change, if approved, would open the door for more environmental groups suing private property owners.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, echoed those concerns, saying the change "could result in serious collateral damage to our economy."

"[I]t appears that the EPA is seeking to dramatically expand its jurisdictional reach under the Clean Water Act," she said in a statement. The senator added that the change could have a huge impact on Alaska.

"If EPA is not careful, this rule could effectively give the federal government control of nearly all of our state -- and prove to be a showstopper for both traditional access and new development," she said."

Follow-up on Ukraine Post

This is a follow-up to the previous post on the reality of the situation in Ukraine:

For a nation that by all appearances has no aspirations beyond her traditional spheres of influence, Russia is the recipient of far too many protests.  The US, for example, is still fixated on "strategic interests" that are far beyond our financial ability to protect. If the US keeps up with the foolish promises to employ military assets to assist the Baltic states, we are only asking for trouble; one day, we will rue our arrogance when we are bankrupt and our geographic isolation is no longer a major factor. China is intent on continuing with her grabbing (or threats of grabbing) of islands from Japan, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan (here they want the whole bag), and the Philippines, and is also doing the same with portions on the Indian side of her land borders, yet to these moves we conveniently  turn a blind eye.

We are still are still tied up with a stupid and short-sighted attitude that is a bizarre combination of that of the Cold War and the even more ridiculous Great Game. It was British greed that ensured that the Ottoman Empire would remain largely intact in Asia Minor and Europe until the establishment of modern Turkey. If Russia had not been prevented from fulfilling what should have been her destiny, Hagia Sophia would have been restored to its original purpose, and the UK could still have had her empire.

Gates of Vienna featured a post from the extraordinarily gifted and insightful writer Takuan Seiyo, in which he outlines the early modern history of Ukraine, the ethnic/cultural makeup or the region, and - even more importantly, the frightening reality that those who orchestrated the recent coup are a dangerous collection of Fascists, Nazis, and other undesirables, with Socialist plutocrats such as George Soros bankrolling the scheme.Included as a dose of needed reality to Americans is a brutally candid yet accurate assessment of the the US electorate.

Excerpts below:

"...................The snatched-and-fully-delivered Western press just sprays jets of misinformation, always on a giant sardine run from the sharp-toothed dolphins of “racism,” sexism, and those awful homo and Islamo phobias and toward the safe haven where democracy, equality, tolerance, compassion, peace and justice shine. And, ah, it’s so clear to the captains of our leaking boat which side in the Ukrainian conflict holds all those twinkling jewels.

To take just one of those baubles under a professional magnifying glass: suppose that Ukraine joins the European Union; is EU a democracy? Does EU reflect, is it responsive to, the wishes and aspirations of its constituent peoples? Does it not engage, in an act of unparalleled authoritarianism, in forced re-engineering and in fact destruction of its constituent peoples, swamping them under an alien mass of foreign, inimical colonizers? Have all those millions of rules, regulations, codes and codicils spewing out of Brussels in a cosmic-size plume been put before the little people for approval?

But don’t look to CNN to explain that by moving from the repulsive Yanukovych to the strange new sexumvirate of Bandera fascists-Oligarchs-Soros-Banksters-US-EU the Ukraine is exchanging one form of corrupt autocracy for another. For one, you would hardly know, unless you read Slavic languages, that the opposition’s sainted Yulia Tymoshenko is a bona fide oligarch, one of Ukraine’s richest citizens, and directly involved in mega-corruption, connection to Ukraine’s super-mafioso Semyon Mogilevich, peripherally perhaps even murder.

If Yanukovych looks bad, and Tymoshenko not sufficiently better, since Ukraine gained independence a continuous string of its Prime Ministers has been involved in mega-theft, major looting and asset-stripping, conspiracy, murder, international arms trafficking, misuse of police and spy services for personal gain, tax evasion and more. Even a cursory glance reveals that Leonid Kuchma, Yukhym Zvyahilsky, Yevhen Marchuk, Paul Lazarenko, Valery Pustovoitenko, Mykola Azarov, Yuriy Yekhanurov and probably others are either fugitives from justice (as is Yanukovych) or in prison now, or have narrowly escaped the one or beaten the other. You wouldn’t know it from reading all that “Yanukovych bad” propaganda............................

With respect to the Ukraine, as in all other foreign matters where America’s and Western Europe’s bien pensant ruling elites wade in with their attaché cases full of Progressive stupidity, metrosexual soft power and, incongruously, missionary neocon madness unencumbered by knowledge of the relative history, ethnography and the spirit of the place, the same short motto applies that I invoked in the earlier article: We have no clue.

Let’s wade in, in search of some.

Nazizoid Democracy

Ukraine’s new government that the Snatcher nitwits governing the West have pushed into place after destabilizing the old one includes Andriy Parubiy, founder of the Social National Party of Ukraine — Nazi, to cut to the core of the matter. Parubiy is Secretary the Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council, i.e. all spook and internal repression services too. His deputy is Dmytro Yarosh, identified in the international press as commander of the Maidan rioters and leader of the Right Sector. What Western hacks fail to dig out is that “Right Sector” is another name of a Nazi[3] organization Yarosh founded, named S. Bandera Tryzub, now subsumed in that sector.

S. Bandera is a name readers of my December 2013 venture onto the Ukraine’s steppes will recognize. Tryzub means trident: symbol of Ukraine. And the whole may be neatly wrapped in a scarf offered on eBay as “Ukraine Scarf Stepan Bandera Tryzub Trident OUN.” Only $14.99 . Just remember what I wrote in this space about OUN — roughly equivalent to the Nazis’ NSDAP, down to SA-like paramilitaries, aggressive symbols, the colors red and black — Blut und Boden (blood and soil) — and eventually a full convergence in the death machine of the SS, the Nachtigall Battalion, Ukrainian police regiments and extermination camp executioners.

As to the mass-murderer and Nazi tool, Stepan Bandera, New Ukraine’s official hero far more than he was the Yanukovych regime’s, the motto he inspired in his followers was “Lachiw wyriżem, Żydiw wydusym, a Ukrajinu stworyty musym”: The Poles we shall slice through, the Jews we shall strangle out, but Ukraine we must create. Look for a Bandera International Airport and the Bandera Trans-Ukraine highway soon, built undoubtedly with money confiscated by the EU from the hapless European taxpayer. UPA mausoleums and cenotaphs for SS Division Galizien and OUN’s Nachtigall Battalion will probably be built with more discreetly sourced funding from Ukraine’s oligarchs.

Svoboda, which grew directly out of Andriy Parubiy’s Ukrainian Nazi party, is now the dominant party in Ukraine’s post-Maidan “democracy” and its government. Svoboda’s leader Oleh Tyahnybok, John Mc Cain’s cordial amigo and now People’s Deputy of the new Ukrainian government, is known for rallies in which Svoboda’s paternity is unmistakable:

The new Deputy Prime Minister, Oleksandr Sych, is Svoboda’s chief ideologue, focused on promoting Ukrainian nationalism in Bandera’s image. Ihor Tenyukh, a member of Svoboda and a former admiral, is the new Defense Minister. Svoboda’s Oleh Makhnitsky is prosecutor-general. Svoboda’s Ihor Shvaika is head of the critically important Ministry of Agriculture. Svoboda’s Andrij Mochnyk is Minister of Ecology. Svoboda’s Serhiy Kvit (by some accounts also a member of the now-camouflaged [and Nazi] Tryzub Bandery) is Minister of Education and Science...............................

All of these helmsmen of the “New, democratic Ukraine” angrily deny the Nazi paternity of their organizations, and deeds of their native idols that even the original German Nazis would have blanched at[4]. Among many other examples Prof. Rudling relays, with a photo, that on the site of Huta Pieniacka, where the Ukrainian Nazi fourth police regiment burnt a Polish village and slaughtered its residents on February 28, 1944, Svoboda has erected a large billboard denying the conclusions of both Polish and Ukrainian historical commissions.

Not two weeks have passed since the putsch in Kiev, and already Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Nations, Yuriy Serheyev, was whitewashing his nation’s Nazis in an international forum. Even more strangely, the only MSM news of this in English seems to have been in the Russian RT, and the only UN ambassador to condemn this vileness was Russia’s.[5]

The red and black banners that were thick in the Maidan in December, the yellow armbands with the Nazi “wolf’s hook,” the Bandera icons, the SS Galizien and Nachtigall Battalion and all other Nazi paraphernalia have been largely toned down by now, replaced by the yellow-and-blue and the trident. Much deep-pockets money has poured in to sustain the Maidan putsch, and some of it undoubtedly paid for the services of American or British PR-men to shape an image tailored to Progressive Western sensibilities. Even the smarmy Tony Blair is in this lucrative business now, managing the Western image of Kazakhstan’s ruler Nursultan Nazarbayev.

Lest we forget the un-massaged Ukraine too quickly, here is a good reminder: a street demonstration probably in February 2014, after the Maidan discorporated:

See the screaming crowd with Stepan Bandera pictures and red-black Ukrainian Nazi flags; the Ukrainian trident embossed on European Union yellow stars-on-blue caps side by side with Ukrainians marching proudly in Waffen SS and OUN-B uniforms — in 2014!. See Oleh Tyahnybok grinning like a Cheshire Cat and hear him mocking the foreigners who disrespect Stepan Bandera. See people holding a street-wide banner with the likenesses of two Class-A WW2 Nazi criminals and one pre-war Nazizoid criminal: Stepan Bandera, Roman Shukevych, and Yevhen Konovalets[6].

Still, the sponsors of this Circus Maximus are the United States and the European Union, and the notions of what they consider kosher in the nascent New World Order are well known to the (mainly Lviv-based) Ukrainian Nazis. This gives rise to taqiah of the sort known to followers of Muhammad and designed to fool Western useful idiots.

Ukrainian Nazis now offer a friendly “all-Ukrainians brothers” logo, relays Ukraine-based blogger Graham Phillips in his “Insane Ukraine”:................................

Indeed, the Nazis are by no means the sole or even the most powerful party in the alliance that carried out the Kiev putsch. This has been a curious hybrid, with major strings pulled from places as far away as Washington, New York, Brussels and Warsaw, and given that the use of agent provocateurs is a standard KGB technique, one could wager that Moscow too.
The strange paternity of Stasoleu Babafa

None of the foregoing is to belittle the Ukrainian people or to question their desperate disgust with the kleptocratic Ancien Regime, from which there was no escape in normal elections. The Maidan was an outlet not only for the Nazis but also for millions of ordinary Ukrainians who couldn’t take it anymore. One can only wish that peoples further West — much further — were so brave and hardy to protest their political, economic and demographic disfranchisement this way.

“People came to the Maidan, in November 2013,” writes Tatiana Zaharchenko in “Ukraine: Corruption Doesn’t Capture It”, “not only to protest their government’s last minute rejection of the free trade and association agreement with the European Union [snip], not only from outrage at riot police violence [snip]. They came to the streets and many have stayed there for 90 days to denounce the looting of their country that has been taking place in front of their eyes for years. They came to reclaim their own dignity, which they were stripped off by becoming part of an unprecedented historical experiment of dismantling state ownership and creating private fortunes behind closed doors overnight, by accepting and living by the rules they did not establish and therefore becoming part of the system they despised.”

That storming the Ukrainian Bastille under Nazi banners may prove counterproductive at the end is another matter, by no means unique. The Russians chafed under the tsar’s yoke when they supported the 1905 and 1917 revolutions, in effect exchanging a Romanov for Stalin. The Germans who put Adolf Hitler in power in 1933 saw in him a true savior of their nation, not the devil incarnate that he was. The Iranians greeted the return of Ayatollah Khomeini from exile as liberation from the Shah’s Savak goons and wept for joy; now they just weep. The millions of middle-of-the-road white Americans who voted for Obama in November 2007 chose not to listen to the little voices in their heads whispering of foreseeable consequences..................................

What’s written here is to highlight the Progressive stupidity of the ruling cliques of the United States and the EU, and their Davos buddy banksters, oligarchs and assorted gofers who are re-engineering the world heedless of the foreseeable consequences of their good and not-so-good intentions..........

Six eventual fathers had to impregnate Ukraine before she could conceive and bring to term 

The mythical post-Yanukovych creature, christened here Stasoleu Babafa after its begetters: State (U.S. Dept. of) — Soros — Oligarchs — EU — Banksters — Bandera Fascists. And the Nazis, though a major concern, would never have been able to succeed, were it not for the other indispensable DNA..............

Incidentally, there may be a reason why Yatsenyuk is acceptable to the OUN-UPA-Svoboda-Right Sector Nazizoids too. According to the usually reliable former Solidarity chaplain and chronicler of Ukrainian fascist atrocities, Fr. Tadeusz Isakowicz-Zaleski, as president of the Open Ukraine Foundation Yatsenyuk implemented a program called “Common history — common future” in the course of which he was promoting UPA in Eastern Ukraine (as to what Eastern Ukraine thinks of UPA, see cartoon above). To make matters more confusing, “Open Ukraine Foundation” must either be a Soros spawn or is at least modeled on Soros’s Open Society activities.

More fingerprints: Ukraine’s new Finance Minister Oleksander Shlepak is a former deputy chairman of Privatbank. Privatbank was founded and is co-owned by Ukraine’s second- or third-richest man, Ihor Kolomoisky. Kolomoisky, the new governor of the Dniepropetrovsk province, is important to the Svoboda/Right Sector regime because he is a high-profile Jew and can thus serve as a Hausjude (token Jew), paraded to massage Western sensibilities with respect to “intolerance” and antisemitism. Privatbank was involved in the laundering of Russian oligarchs’ money into Cyprus; there are allegations that it served as a conduit for American and other western funding of the Maidan putsch, but there is no convincing evidence of it that I know...............................................

“The United States considers as a matter of official policy that the promotion of democracy is an important element of its overall national security strategy. Large sections of the State Department, the CIA, para-governmental agencies like the National Endowment for Democracy, and government-funded NGOs like the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, which publishes several works on “democracy promotion.” All these operations have one thing in common: they involve the interference, sometimes violent, of Western powers, especially the US, in the political processes of other states, and that interference is very often used to promote the quintessential revolutionary goal, regime change.”

“Democracy” is not the only almost-involuntary psychotic twitch of the American governing elite. Among the others, a curious one is the mania of placing women in key foreign policy positions, where they have to go eyeball-to-eyeball with wily, ruthless, macho dictators of the patriarchal nations that are the chief foes and competitors of America. I, for one, would love to have been there as a fly on the wall for the male banter after the Nuland woman’s meeting with Tyahnybok & Co. or the Clinton woman’s meeting with Sergey Lavrov, or to hear Muslim potentates’ appreciation in places like Cairo, Riyadh, Damascus, Yemen or Pakistan after the likes of Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice, Karen Hughes, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Power have exited the palace...........................................

Moreover, a country where rivers of blood have been shed as recently as World War II between the Russians and Russo-Ukrainians of the Eastern part and the Nazizoid-Ukrainians of the Western part. A country which, if the putsch succeeded, would have been the thirteenth on the periphery of Russia added to NATO since 1999, delivering a humiliating slap to a bear that — flea-bitten though he may be — is still a proud, fierce grizzly.

Just how could have Russia possibly acted in response to such a provocation, per the thinking of the foggy bottoms of the U.S. State Department, but the way she has acted?

It was the right thing to do to help the Soviet Union’s former satellites; in fact it was a major blunder not to help Russia itself when the time was right, and Bush 41 in the patented Bushian manner did the wrong thing. But since the Georgia caper, it should have been clear that major diminishing returns are the case now. The more the West meddles now on Russia’s periphery, the more aggressive Russia grows — and that’s in an age of uniform Western weakness, foolishness and talking big while waving a small stick — all of which Russia knows too well..................................

Former insults and maladroit moves of the West have already led to Russia’s seeking naval bases and other military assets in eight countries on the periphery of Pax Americana, stationing NATO-targeted nuclear missiles in the formerly Polish city of Kaliningrad, Putin’s entente cordiale with China and other countries that dislike the democracy-mongering American Uncle, and Russia’s creation of a bloc devoted to eliminating the US dollar from international trade.

The more the US and EU bait the bear, the more the bear bites back. Was the OUN-UPA-Bandera Maidan the opportune moment in history for more bear baiting? Future hostilities on Ukraine’s soil are as good as guaranteed now, but there is more. Just as Ukrainian Nazis are revered in Ukraine, so are Estonian Nazis in Estonia and Latvian Nazis in Latvia. Both countries are former Soviet vassals and in both annual parades and ceremonies are held to commemorate native Waffen-SS battalions in service of the Nazi machine. Both also, like Ukraine, have significant Russian minorities, and like the post-putsch Ukraine discourage or prohibit the use of the Russian language.

Russia has now been emboldened to signal its grave concern (e.g. here) over these matters, and may at some opportune moment implement hostile activities against Estonia and Latvia as well. It remains an incalculable blunder in all three countries to imperil hard-won independence from the Soviet yoke by coddling Nazis.........................

Just because the United States has voluntarily ceded large swaths of its landmass to an estimated 25% of the population of Mexico and Latin America in the last 50 years alone (some data pro and con) not to speak of their rapidly-multiplying descendants; and has promoted countless individuals to positions of power and responsibility based on their skin pigmentation; and has redeployed its Affirmative Action-led NASA to space cooperation with Nigeria and Indonesia and to promoting Socialism, and has gifted the Panama Canal that it had built from scratch to — long story short — the Chinese; and has voluntarily built the starving Chinese waif into a giant, muscle-bound, menacing Frankenstein colossus; and has trained countless actual and potential Muslim terrorists in its colleges and flight schools and armed services, does it give it a right to emit a cloud of hostile words and actions against countries, including Russia, that define their national interest in, ahm, more traditional ways?

Indeed, sitting in the hoi polloi upper gallery of this Grand Guignol par-excellence, one howls with painful spasms of laughter listening to the likes of America’s Alinskyite saboteur Obama — far to the left of Putin and far worse for America than Putin is for Russia; or the gilded limousine liberal Jean Francois Kerry, or Hillary What-Difference-Does-It-Make Clinton, or the clueless Affirmative Action U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations lambast, insult, give ultimatums, threaten with empty gestures and amuse with New World Order confetti a super-Machiavellian, stone-eyed KGB colonel like Putin. Appropriately, as this is being written, when 97% of Crimea voted to be with Russia — and they would have even if there had been no Russian tanks at the border (and no Kiev-Ukrainian ones either) — the news says “Russia laughs at Obama ‘sanctions’: calls him ‘Prankster’” and the U.S. — and Germany too but more about that later — continue shaking in feverish indignation.

The KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn asserted in his book
The Perestroika Deception
that the Soviets designed Perestroika and Glasnost and even the collapse of the USSR as a subterfuge, to lull the West into laying down its defenses, opening itself to free commerce and movement of people to and from Russia, and so to build Russia with Western capital and Western technology while hobbling it with a large crowd of controlled useful idiots, immigrant-moles, technology-transferring Russian employees and all those other things that, like 9/11, are possible only in a Snatcher-run “open” society that’s never open enough to stop the various Sorosing and Obamaing operations performed upon it by Progressive loons.

I do not know whether Mr. Golitsyn’s premise is true, but looking at the history of the United States moves versus China and Mexico or its management of its incessant wars and tussles such as over Ukraine, I know that it might as well be.

The Russians, the Chinese, the Persians, the Talibs — they all chuckle and guffaw all day as they read nonstop about America’s voluntary self-termination that America is so crazed as to celebrate nonstop. They know how little it means what Obama says compared to the fact that America elected Obama — twice. Putin in particular and his KGB lieutenants know best of all, for when they read about female combat Marines, Wise Latina justices, and student government leaders at the University of Michigan who demand that engineering students first study the “all-important subjects of race and ethnicity” (Daily Caller’s words and photo) they can trace that all the way back to the Comintern and to Lenin’s “useful idiots,” and they know that the work that failed via the “class struggle” has now succeeded through the lab-incubated plagues of identity politics, diversitism, multiculti, global migra, white privilege, affirmative action, GLBT supremacy and the rest of that whole howling insanity, and they know too that no matter how many Machs America’s jets can do now, its airplane has already landed — and she doesn’t even know it.........................:

12 Year-old Medical Patient Seized by State Will Remain in State Custody

There has been a sad and terrible outcome to a story that I have followed in several previous posts: (Most recent post prior to new development)


"A Massachusetts judge ruled Tuesday that the Connecticut teen in the middle of a contentious custody battle between her parents and the state will remain in custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.

The Boston Globe reported that Boston juvenile court Judge Joseph Johnson granted “permanent custody to the state DCF, leaving it up to the agency to decide if and when 15-year-old Justina Pelletier is returned to her parents’ custody. This decision was in response to a motion filed by Linda and Lou Pelletier, Justina’s parents, and her court appointed attorney for a “conditional custody” plan.

Mat Staver, attorney and founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, told TheBlaze as he understands the order that was filed with the clerk Tuesday afternoon, the DCF will retain custody of Justina until May 25 at which point another hearing will be held to determine custody going forward.

“This is just completely unacceptable. The family asked us to pursue any other opportunities and appeals,” Staver said. “The family is beyond fed up.”

In response to the Globe reporting the state will retain “permanent” custody, Staver said “there’s no way they could have done that.”

“I’ll have to look into that more but I can’t imagne this is the case in this situation,” he added and noted that the motion that he formally be admitted onto the case, at the Pelletiers request, was denied by the judge.........."

Once I was able to move past my outrage at this atrocious decision by the court, I began to wonder if this is a case of a judge - in collusion with the State Division of Children and Families (DCF), to make a final assertion of their authority in order for them to return the child back to the custody of her parents without the appearance of caving in to public pressure.

As I have previously noted, I find no reason to believe that this is anything other than an "event cascade" in which the jerk neurologist, the hospital, DCF, and the judge have painted themselves into a corner by refusing to admit that there was no legitimate reason to seize custody of the child in the first place. 

Bureaucratic bodes are notorious for being staffed by narcissists who are also fully  incompetent, and when a wrongful decision is made that is not immediately followed by a correction, the system bogs down. All decision-making parties tend to engage in  an act of "circling the wagons"  to protect - not only the first wrongful act, but all subsequent (and equally wrongful) acts. Each step features one individual or group that peddles influence to protect the most recent decision-maker, and the snowball gets harder to stop as it gains weight and mass from every failure to fix the problem. The refusal to allow Attorney Mat Staver to represent the victim only confirms my conclusion that this in fact what happened; the last thing a arrogant, bureaucrat-supporting judge would want is another lawyer convincingly arguing that all previous decision of the court were wrong.

Again, I wonder (well, maybe it's only hope) that the judge wanted to avoid the appearance or being intimidated by the fairly substantial outpouring of support for Justina and her family. He could possibly have let DCF caseworkers know (a sort of backroom talk with a proviso) that he will do what they want as long as they in turn take steps to return her to the custody of her parents. If this is what occurred, the jerk neurologist, the hospital, DCF, and the judge will be able to "save face" and the final act of restoring the child-victim to her Mom and Dad will be treated as an act of mercy rather than one of desperation by the incompetent yet thoroughly Orwellian players in this shameful saga.

Either way, a terrible precedent has again* been set that will not bode well for the rights of parents and children. Welcome to the totalitarian United States of America.

German Home-schoolers Lose Case - But Won't be Deported

In the deep south, they would say-

The blind man saw this comin' a mile away.

I, however, will freely admit that I did not expect the final outcome of the Romeike family's horrific odyssey of loss of custody, flight, asylum, contesting of that asylum, and repeated losses in the US court system and possible ensuing deportation.

But I at least should have been able to suspect that it could have turned out this way

With hindsight being - as they say - 20/20, now it all makes sense.

Germany did not appear to have clamored to have these people sent back to the Fatherland. Although they well have feared the backlash from US supporters who rightly vowed to engage in civil disobedience(*at bottom) to prevent any moves to deport the Romeike's, the Obama administration may even not have had a serious problem with allowing them to remain in the US.

The main point is simple-

Obama got what he wanted. US courts effectively ruled that losing custody of one's children for defying a German law that forbids home-schooling does not  amount to persecution. 

The Romeike's were nothing more than a pawn in a chess game that Obama won - and decisively so. 

Now that in the US there is now an implicit (if not explicit- I have not read the final ruling) legal precedent that home schooling is not a human right. Home-schooling families, and those who may be considering that option to educate their children, can expect an ever-increasing amount of rules, restrictions, and regulations to come down the pike. Parents will find it harder to keep their children away from the garbage that is force-fed to the vast majority of K-12 students in the United States.

"On Tuesday, the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) announced a drastic turnaround on the part of the federal government: The German Romeike family, which sought asylum in the United States to home-school their children, will now be allowed to stay in America.

“The Romeikes can stay!!!” the HSLDA announced on its Facebook page.

Just one day ago, the Romeikes thought they would be forced to return to Germany, where the state could take custody of their children because of their decision to home-school. At a minimum, they would face increasingly harsh fines for violating Germany’s compulsory attendance law.

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike have been fighting to remain in the United States since 2008, when they fled to Tennessee, but the Supreme Court declined to hear their appeal for asylum on Monday.

post on the HSLDA’s Facebook wall signed by the organization’s chairman, Michael Farris, explains the change:

'Today, a Supervisor with the Department of Homeland Security called a member of our legal team to inform us that the Romeike family has been granted “indefinite deferred status”. This means that the Romeikes can stay in the United States permanently (unless they are convicted of a crime, etc.)

This is an incredible victory that can only be credited to our Almighty God.

We also want to thank those of who spoke up on this issue–including that long ago White House petition. We believe that the public outcry made this possible while God delivered the victory'........

........ Uwe Romeike commented in a statement on the HSLDA website: “We are happy to have indefinite status even though we won’t be able to get American citizenship any time soon. As long as we can live at peace here, we are happy. We have always been ready to go wherever the Lord would lead us—and I know my citizenship isn’t really on earth.”

The family has claimed Germany’s laws violate international human rights standards, but the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals concluded last year that U.S. law does not grant asylum to “every victim of unfair treatment.”

When the Supreme Court declined to hear the case, the HSLDA said the “last judicial hope for the family” had been exhausted. The 24-hour turnaround by the U.S. legal system was highly unexpected..........."

Catholic Cardinal - Obama Hostile to Christian Civilization

Given his multiple pronouncements in which he either stated  that Catholics should refrain from doing much more than helping the poor* and bringing people to the Gospel (which sounds eerily vague** thing coming from him), Pope Francis may well have a problem with the recent statements of Cardinal Raymond Burke; he has already sacked him recently for the crime of doing that which a clergyman must***.

While the Patriarch of the West repeatedly either states or implies that Catholics should disengage from crucial social threats, or suggests that they do little in the face of dangerous inroads of government into the rights of Christians to live their lives free of compulsion to ignore their consciences, one high-ranking clergyman spoke up.

-Excerpt from an interview is below:

"......10. The policy of the President of the US towards the Christian civilisation becomes more and more aggressive. Does Your Eminence notice any symptoms of Catholic reactions against this policy? If yes, what are they, if not why?

"It is true that the policies of the President of the United States of America have become progressively more hostile toward Christian civilization. He appears to be a totally secularized man who aggressively promotes anti-life and anti-family policies. Now he wants to restrict the exercise of the freedom of religion to freedom of worship, that is, he holds that one is free to act according to his conscience within the confines of his place of worship but that, once the person leaves the place of worship, the government can constrain him to act against his rightly-formed conscience, even in the most serious of moral questions. Such policies would have been unimaginable in the United States even 40 years ago. It is true that many faithful Catholics, with strong and clear leadership from their Bishops and priests, are reacting against the ever-growing religious persecution in the U.S. Sadly, one has the impression that a large part of the population is not fully aware of what is taking place. In a democracy, such a lack of awareness is deadly. It leads to the loss of the freedom which a democratic government exists to protect. It is my hope that more and more of my fellow citizens, as they realize what is happening, will insist on electing leaders who respect the truth of the moral law as it is respected in the founding principles of our nation."................"

I am thrilled that a Cardinal - and one from the US at that, had the courage to speak truthfully about the campaign that Obama has been waging against Christians, particularly Catholics. It remains to be seen if Pope Francis will sack Cardinal Burke from his remaining position in the Vatican Court. I hope that the Poe will see the error of his ways and take no negative action against a church leader who is doing his job


".............I would welcome his words if he urged the developed countries to increase their assistance of agricultural development such as irrigation, soil improvement, and drought/disease resistant crops. He could have added that we would do well to improve access to water and provide jobs by building production facilities of any type in underdeveloped nations.

All of these would would be more in line with Christian principles than merely telling people that the right to property, with that of national sovereignty and cultural identity naturally following, essentially mean nothing. It would also be of far more benefit to help them from a position of - of not prosperity, which is fast leaving Western nations, at least of having more than what is necessary; a key acquirement for those who are called upon to help others rather than from a position of forced, mutually-shared ruin.

I respect the call to end what amounts to slavery in many nations, but Pope Francis is taking the position of the Left by having us infer that we have no right or reasons for our concerns.

"Pope Francis urged countries on Tuesday to welcome and respect migrants and refugees and not treat them as "pawns on the chessboard of humanity".

Francis, who has made the defense of the poor and vulnerable a cornerstone of his papacy, said in a message for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees that there should be a change in attitude on the part of host countries......

"They are children, women and men who leave or who are forced to leave their homes for various reasons, who share a legitimate desire for knowing and having, but above all for being more."...........

Immigration is a divisive issue in Europe and beyond. France's far-right National Front, which has an anti-immigrant policy, has been buoyed by improving poll numbers.

Italy's first black minister, Cecile Kyenge, who was born in Africa, has been the butt of racist comments from the anti-immigrant Northern League because she supports automatic citizenship for immigrant children born in Italy.

The steady flow of refugee boats is a also hot issue in Australia, polarizing voters this month's election.

The pope, whose own ancestors left Italy for Argentina in the early 20th century and lived through 
the Great Depression, called for "the elimination of prejudices and presuppositions" in the approach to migration.

"Not infrequently, the arrival of migrants, displaced persons, asylum-seekers and refugees gives rise to suspicion and hostility. There is a fear that society will become less secure, that identity and culture will be lost, that competition for jobs will become stiffer and even that criminal activity will increase," he said.......

["Yes, your Holiness, that is correct, but our concerns are not petty, nor are they without cause. They are derived from what we are already experiencing now. These are not irrational fears, they are realizations that everything that you mention is happening as we speak".]........."


".......The Pope's idea of Christian love is one that can safely ignore the responsibility of the believer to act as a representative of the Faith, be it primarily by word or action.

Jesus clearly loved the woman caught in adultery, but he also directed her to "go and sin no more". No Gospel, epistle, or any great Christian writer would give the impression that love without instruction and correction is sufficient in any way.

God have mercy on us - the man who sits on the chair of Peter seems to be little more than a moral relativist who has a very low appreciation of  true evil and the core message of the Gospel - sin, redemption, and a call to personal holiness......"


"......ROME — Pope Francis moved on Monday against a conservative American cardinal who has been an outspoken critic of abortion and same-sex marriage, by replacing him on a powerful Vatican committee with another American who is less identified with the culture wars within the Roman Catholic Church........

Cardinal Burke, who came to the Vatican in 2008 after serving as archbishop of St. Louis, is a favorite of many conservative Catholics in the United States for his upholding of church rites and traditions favored by Pope Benedict XVI. Cardinal Burke’s preference for the long train of billowing red silk known as cappa magna, and other such vestments, has, however, made him seem out of step with Francis, who has made it clear through example that he prefers more humble attire.

Last week, Cardinal Burke also seemed to create more substantive daylight between himself and the pope, giving an interview in which he raised concerns about comments by Francis that the church should reduce the focus on abortion and same-sex marriage.

One gets the impression, or it’s interpreted this way in the media, that he thinks we’re talking too much about abortion, too much about the integrity of marriage as between one man and one woman,” Cardinal Burke said of the pope in an interview with EWTN, a Catholic broadcaster. “But we can never talk enough about that.”..............

Revised-CBS Reporter Debacle - Media is in Bed With Obama Administration

Revision 3/24/14 - That fact that comes from a very Left-slanted newspaper is enough to make it quite a surpise:

"President Barack Obama’s administration is the “greatest enemy of press freedom that we have encountered in a generation,” a New York Times reporter said over the weekend, according to a journalism news outlet.

Reporter James Risen — currently fighting the government in an effort to protect a confidential source — reportedly added that the administration wants to “narrow the field of national security reporting” to “create a path for accepting reporting.”

Those who do not comply “will be punished,” he reportedly said.........."


Main post-

I have noted in previous post that the mainstream media is so fully allied with the Left that even the NSA spying scandal, in which even the most cooperative lapdogs of journalism were targeted,  would not change their loyalty to The Cause. After the perfunctory and at most obligatory cries of "foul", the issue was promptly left to rot. The Leftist agenda requires that many, including its most enthusiastic supporters, must endure abuses so that we can hasten the implementation of the Western variant of Socialism.  

I am reminded of the most committed of Socialists who suffered oppression, including prison, in the former USSR. They were treated in the most terrible of ways, but very few abandoned their childlike attachment to Marxism.

The case of CBS news reporter Catherine Anaya is a classic example of how Western Socialism functions. She reported something that we have no reason to believe was anything but the truth, but the forces of Evil immediately combined against her. One would have loved to be able to listen to the ultimatum that she was given. There is little doubt  that she was told that she would never work for a news network again unless she retracted her account.

What makes this even more obvious is the manner in which she made the retraction. It has all the marks of a written statement that a hostage is forced to read while sitting in front of a video camera. The truth is hard to hide when a contradictory statement is made once, but it becomes impossible to cover-up when it is mentioned several times in as many different ways. The full text of the retraction is just below the excerpt from the Canada Free Press.

"It was a sad day Thursday as the slow death march of American journalism continued. Not only was a seasoned TV reporter forced to walk back a legitimate news story but the story was coverage of local journalists visiting the White House for the day and what the White House Press Secretary said.

Catherine Anaya is still very youthful but she is a veteran local news reporter of 22 years having worked in Phoenix the whole time except for a four year stint in Los Angeles. She has won three local news Emmy’s and is the lead female anchor at Channel 5, the CBS Phoenix affiliate.

...................the controversy surrounded Anaya’s on air report from Washington which aired on the Channel Five evening news. In it she stated that her day started with White House Press Secretary Jay Carney who explained how his job works. During this explanation she reported with great confidence and clarity:

“One of the things I found most interesting was that the reporters and correspondents, unless it’s breaking news, they provide the questions to him in advance so he is already preparing for the answer and sometimes, in some cases I should say, he actually prepares that answer for them so that they can have that to work on their reports later on”

This revelation, that reporters already have the answers to questions they ask, caused a major uproar in political reporting circles. The Rush Limbaugh show ran with the audio of the clip after which the host predicted that the political journalism elite would not and could not allow the story to stand. He accurately predicted that Anaya would be forced into retracting the story in some way and was proved correct within hours..............

"Last night during my live reports from the White House I attempted to describe the highlights of the day. I was speaking off the cuff and unscripted and in the process I made two major mistakes: I reported an off the record conversation and what I reported was not accurate. I took a conversation about the preparation for a press briefing and muddied it with my own experience of wanting to provide a question for the press briefing. I incorrectly applied the process to everyone. That was wrong and it was bad reporting. But it was not intentional and I would never purposely report inaccurate information. The White House never asked for my questions in advance and never instructed me what to ask. I chose to provide one of my questions in advance of the press briefing because I wanted to make sure it would have broad appeal. I did not attribute or report factually last night and for that I deeply apologize. I pride myself on truth and objectivity. I sincerely regret any harm I've caused and I hope that you will continue to place your trust in the hardworking journalists who make up CBS 5 News."

The last paragraph in the Canada Free Press article contained a line that bemoaned the death of free journalism in the US. I disagree strongly with that statement. This was no mere death but a slow and orchestrated suicide for the purpose of bringing about the enslavement of all of us.
