And you thought 2020 couldn’t get any more tense. On Friday night, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg finally lost her long battle with pancreatic cancer. The Court’s most outspoken liberal, Ginsburg had survived multiple bouts with cancer but finally passed away at age 87, the Associated Press reported.

While Ginsburg was a notorious liberal, twisting the text of the Constitution to support far-left causes like abortion, she was also an impressive and inspiring individual. A pioneer as a woman in the legal profession, she rose through the ranks while having children and raising a family.

“Our Nation has lost a jurist of historic stature,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in a statement on Ginsburg’s passing. “We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”

Her passing opens up one of the Court’s nine seats less than two months before the presidential election. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has said he would rush to confirm any justice nominated by President Donald Trump even shortly before an election.

When Justice Antonin Scalia died in 2016, McConnell refused to consider President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee. Democrats have accused McConnell of having a double standard on a potential Trump nominee during an election year, but McConnell has insisted that when the president and the Senate majority represent two separate parties, they should wait to confirm a justice until the election.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) tweeted the exact text of McConnell’s statement when Scalia passed away.

Get ready for a tense political battle.

Last week, President Donald Trump released an updated list of potential Supreme Court nominees.

It remains unclear whether or not the president will nominate a justice so close to the election, but since the Democrats did away with the filibuster for judicial nominations, it seems likely the Senate could confirm a replacement for Ginsburg before the election. If the Senate did so, the Democrats would likely renew their calls to pack the Supreme Court after a Joe Biden victory.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump rallied the Republican Party to confirm a Supreme Court nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He called filling the vacancy an “obligation” to be fulfilled “without delay.”

“We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices,” the president tweeted. “We have this obligation, without delay!”

Ginsburg, an impressive justice and a liberal lion of the Court, passed away on Friday at the age of 87.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said the Senate will consider Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden has called for the Senate to wait until after the election, rather than rushing to confirm a potential Trump nominee.

CORONAVIRUS TESTING SUSPENDED AT BOSTON LAB AFTER MANY FALSE POSITIVE RESULTS

BY RISHMA PARPIA

SEE: https://thevaccinereaction.org/2020/09/coronavirus-testing-suspended-at-boston-lab-after-many-false-positive-results/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) has suspended testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus at Boston based laboratory on Aug. 8, 2020 after the laboratory reported almost 400 false positive tests.1

Orig3n Laboratory Currently Under State Investigation

Orig3n Laboratory, a genetics and biotechnology company was suspended after state health officials became aware of an unusually high number of positive SARS-CoV-2 tests reported by the laboratory. An investigation found that there were at least 383 inaccurate positive results that were retested and came back as negative.2 Orig3n Laboratory has approximately sixty nursing homes as their customers.3

On Aug. 27, 2020, the MDPH said it notified Orig3n Laboratory that they had been cited with “three significant certification deficiencies that put patients at immediate risk of harm.”4 MDPH found that the laboratory director failed to provide appropriate management of the required processes. The laboratory did not include a control material in the extraction phase of testing and did not adhere to requirements like documenting sanitization of its equipment.5

A MDPH spokesperson said, “The Boston lab is required to respond with a written plan of correction, and if action is not taken it can face sanctions,”6

Nursing Home Negatively Impacted By False Positive Test Results

One of the nursing homes, Pines Edge Health Center at the North Hill Retirement Community in Needham, Massachusetts, was negatively impacted by the false positive tests. Ted Owens, CEO of the retirement community said that their retirement community was notified that eighteen employees and one resident were tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.7

Since the retirement community was unaware that the tests were inaccurate, the resident was quarantined in isolation and the employees were told to stay home with paid sick leave.8

Owens said, “We notified our community of residents, family members and employees about the situation, which understandably caused significant concern. The costs to the facility were also significant.” He added, “The false positive results created tremendous fear and anxiety among employees, residents and the family members of both.”9

Laboratory Blames Human Error For Inaccuracies

Orig3n Laboratory has said that the inaccuracy in testing was caused by “human error” that resulted in the contamination of tests.10

According to Robin Smith, chief executive at laboratory, the laboratory has processed “tens of thousands” of SARS-CoV-2 tests in the last three months; however, the extent of inaccurate testing at the laboratory is not known since public health officials did not re-test every sample collected at the laboratory.11

77 False Positive Tests Among NFL Players

A similar situation occurred amongst players in the National Football League (NFL). Seventy-seven individuals in the NFL who were tested for SARS-CoV-2 received test results that were false positives. As a result, eleven teams had to make adjustments to their training camp schedules due to the fear caused by the inaccurate testing.12

BioReference Laboratories, based in New Jersey, is the laboratory that the NFL hired to conduct SARS-CoV-2 tests for all of their players. According to Jon R. Cohen, MD, the Executive Chairman of BioReference Laboratories, the false positives were a result of contamination.

Dr. Cohen said…

On August 22, BioReference Laboratories reported an elevated number of positive [SARS-CoV-2] PCR test results for NFL players and personnel at multiple clubs. The NFL immediately took necessary actions to ensure the safety of the players and personnel. Our investigation indicated that these were most likely false positive results, caused by an isolated contamination during test preparation in the New Jersey laboratory. Reagents, analyzers and staff were all ruled out as possible causes and subsequent testing has indicated that the issue has been resolved. All individuals impacted have been confirmed negative and informed.13

The NFL has a protocol whereby all positive test results are followed by two additional tests over a 24-hour period. If both of those tests are negative, the original test is classified as a false positive.14

The NFL Player’s Association said they have initiated an investigation into the testing process at the lab.15

GLASGOW, DELAWARE: “DRAG QUEEN” WINS DEMOCRAT PRIMARY AGAINST INCUMBENT WHO VOTED AGAINST “GAY MARRIAGE”

BY HEATHER CLARK

GLASGOW, Del. — An openly homosexual Delaware man who moonlights as a drag queen has won the Democratic primary for state representative, defeating current Rep. Earl Jaques, Jr., a “moderate” lawmaker who voted against same-sex “marriage” in 2013, as well as a 2017 bill to “modernize” the state’s laws to align with Roe v. Wade.

Eric Morrison garnered 61 percent of the vote on Tuesday, while Jaques obtained 38 percent. The two were squaring off to represent the 27th district in Delaware’s House of Representatives. Jaques has held to the seat since 2009.

The two had censured each other in the race, with Morrison, 45, taking issue with Jaques’ voting record not aligning with the Democratic Party and Jaques, 72, baffled that Morrison would hold a “Dude Looks Like a Lady” drag show as a fundraiser for his campaign.

“My opponent claims to be a ‘Democratic moderate,'” Morrison tweeted on Sunday. “But I say that no real Democrat votes against a woman’s right to choose, LGBT equality, banning the barbaric practice of LGBT ‘conversion therapy,’ environmental protections, and preserving vital programs for seniors.”

Jaques had voted against a bill in 2017 that sought to “modernize[] Delaware’s laws on abortion to be consistent with the scope” of Roe v. Wade, and in 2013, he likewise voted down a bill that sought to homosexual “marriage” in the state. In 2018, he abstained from voting on legislation that banned “conversion therapy” for youth with unwanted same-sex attraction.

Last year, Jaques told the Delaware News-Journal that he didn’t think voters would elect a drag queen.

“That is so far off-base for our district, it’s unbelievable,” he stated. “You wonder what the point is. You can have fundraisers, I don’t care about that. But dressing in drag? Really?”

Jaques, who attends a United Methodist assembly, particularly noted that churches would not be supportive of such a candidate. Morrison has been performing in drag for over 20 years and goes by the name “Anita Mann.”

“I’m not sure he represents the people who attend those places of religion,” Jaques stated. “If he’s actually having a fundraiser in drag, I don’t think those churches would endorse that. … I’m just saying it’s a little different, that’s for sure.”

However, he later apologized for his comments after receiving criticism from House Democratic leadership, which reiterated its support for those who identify as “LGBT.”

“It is wrong to attempt to pass judgment or impose one person’s belief structure onto others,” Jaques said in a statement. “My job as a state representative is to represent all constituents of the 27th district, regardless of gender, race, creed, orientation or identity, period.”

The Philadelphia Gay News reports that, if elected, along with “with LGBTQ rights and women’s reproductive rights [a.k.a. abortion], Morrison plans to support criminal justice reform, marijuana legalization, the expungement of records, campaign finance, elections and environmental protections.”

John Jay

New York Governor and U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Jay, who later became president of Hornblower’s American Bible Society, once said in 1816 in a letter to John Murray, “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”

Founding father Noah Webster, known for penning the American dictionary, also wrote in exhorting fellow Christians, “When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God.”

“The preservation of government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty. If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted. Laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes, corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws, the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men, and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded.”

“If government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine Commands and elect bad men to make and administer the laws.”

 

ALERT: JOE BIDEN ADDRESSES TERROR-TIED GROUP ISNA – TRASHES AMERICA, TRUMP (WATCH)

Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden trashed Americans as intolerant and smeared a duly-elected President during the terror-tied Islamic Society of North America’s (ISNA) annual convention earlier this month.

ISNA, like the HAMAS-Linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial. Founded by Muslim Brotherhood members, ISNA in Canada was “stripped of their charity status” in 2018 and “fined for financing Terrorists,” as reported by RAIR’s Amy Mek.

Joe Biden shared his platform with radical antisemitic Muslims who have aligned with the militant left such as Zahra BillooLinda SarsourYasir Qadhi and Hatem Bazian. The promotional material for the ISNA Conference could easily pass for any communist convention, complete with the commie fist and calls for “social and racial justice.”

Source (Website Screenshot)

Speaking during “Session 5A,” titled “20/20 Vision On Racism,” Biden laughably claimed that “Muslim Americans are under constant attack by President Trump and his Administration.” Further, he inartfully stated:

“Muslim communities were the first to feel President Trump’s assault on black and brown communities in this country with a vile Muslim ban.”

The tedious Biden seems to forget that Islam is not a race, and there was never a “Muslim ban.” Aside perhaps from his introduction, Biden’s entire address was an incoherent pandering fabrication.

“We’ve seen what comes from policies and rhetoric that fan the flames of hate in our country,” Biden continued. “A rise in Islamophobia, many incidences, kids being bullied in school, hate crimes on the march,” he said. Biden further declared:

“We are facing multiple crises – crises that under Donald Trump, are multiplying.”

Some of the “multiple crises” that are “multiplying,” Biden says, are:

“Covid. Economic devastation. Unwarranted police violence. Emboldened white nationalists. Long overdue national reckoning about the way our country has treated black and brown and native Americans.”

The former Vice President pandered: “I know Muslim Americans feel it too, especially black Muslims. And a declining faith in the bright American future.” Biden continues: “The common thread? An incumbent president who makes things worse, not better.”

Joe Biden made it clear that if elected, he and Vice President Kamala Harris “will work in partnership” with Muslim Americans, who he will have “serving at every level.” He assured, incoherently, “My word is a Biden.”

In July, Biden addressed the Million Muslim Voters Summit, whose goal is to “turn out one million Muslim voters for the 2020 presidential elections.” The organization is a project of Emgage, which was “founded by and is led by Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas operatives.”

At best, Biden was engaged in uniformed, severe pandering. At worst, the democratic nominee knows exactly what he is doing.

ELECTION INTERFERENCE EXPOSED: HILLARY CLINTON TARGETS AND DEPLATFORMS TRUMP SUPPORTERS THROUGH ‘DARK MONEY’ GROUP

BY RENEE NAL

SEE: https://rairfoundation.com/election-interference-exposed-hillary-clinton-targets-and-deplatforms-trump-supporters-through-dark-money-group/;

The latest effort to dominate the election narrative by silencing conservative voices comes from Clinton acolytes in the form of an organization called “Accountable Tech”. The subversive group is pushing the “dragging out the election” strategy until Americans accept Joe Biden as president. Accountable Tech claims that there will “likely be a prolonged period of uncertainty as ballots are counted.”

Accountable Tech is conspiring with TwitterGoogleYouTube, and Facebook, who are all openly working to suppress election “disinformation” which will boil down to any criticism of the ultimate strategy to kick President Donald Trump out of office, even if he wins on election night.

Earlier this week, Hillary Clinton linked to Accountable Tech in a Tweet, dog-whistling like mad to her supporters: “We can have democracy—or we can have social networks that allow the spread of weaponized disinformation about our elections…”

The Accountable Tech website ominously warns:

“Unchecked lies about mail-in ballots and fraud will suppress votes. Baseless claims of election-rigging will sow chaos and inflame tensions. And extremists will organize and advocate for violence.”

Hillary Clinton has set the stage by stating openly that “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances.” She continued: “Because, I think this is going to drag out and eventually I do believe we will win, if we don’t give an inch.”

Watch:

Accountable Tech, founded by Nicole Gill and Jesse Lehrich, has previously also teamed to pressure social media giants to suppress viewpoints they deem “unscientific,” such as social media posts critical of man-made global warming.

Accountable Tech’s co-founder Nicole Gill’s big achievement is her organized opposition to President Trump’s incredibly successful economy-boosting tax cuts. Gill has also served as senior advisor to the CEO of Pathfinder International, which trains developing countries to promote and conduct abortions, or as she puts it, an NGO “focused on reproductive health care worldwide.”

Gill’s fellow co-founder Jesse Lehrich worked on the presidential campaigns of both Obama and Clinton, and gained national attention for telling then-candidate Trump to “go f**k yourself” while Lehrich was serving as foreign policy spokesman for Hillary Clinton.

Accountable Tech does not disclose its donors, but Hillary Clinton is certainly onboard.

Accountable Tech released what they refer to as the “Election Integrity Roadmap for Social Media Platforms,” which includes “steps” big tech can use to suppress pro-Trump voices and ensure a win for their puppet, Joe Biden. Steps include suggestions such as “platforms must elevate authoritative information and disincentivize false, divisive, and sensationalist posts that often travel the fastest.”

Read more in their email campaigns, documented here.

It is clear that the militant left is pushing to make election day drag on until Joe Biden “wins”. Americans must loudly tell their elected officials that this “dragging out the election” strategy, which includes silencing pro-Trump voices, is unacceptable.

TRUMP’S MISGUIDED EFFORT TO GIVE KIDS A “PATRIOTIC EDUCATION”

BY RICK MORAN

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/columns/rick-moran/2020/09/18/trumps-misguided-effort-to-give-kids-a-patriotic-education-n941754;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:
Donald Trump announced that he will sign an executive order that to “restore patriotic education” to America’s schools. The “national commission to support patriotic education” called the 1776 Commission will teach our children “to love America with all of their heart and all of their soul.”NBC News:

Trump said the framing of history around race was “toxic propaganda” and “a form of child abuse in the truest sense of those words” — specifically calling out critical race theory, a concept that was started around the idea that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist. He accused Democrats of pushing education that makes students “ashamed” of America’s history.

He also took aim at the 1619 Project, a New York Times-backed initiative that focused on the “consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are as a country.” The project, which won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary, was released last year to coincide with the anniversary of slaves’ being brought to the Virginia Colony 400 years ago.

The New York Times 1619 Project sought to alter America’s national narrative by artificially imposing a dishonest template to our history — an overlay that made race the primary mover of events and people. They’ve been called to account for it by historians of both the right and the left.

So what’s the difference between a dishonest attempt to trash American history and Trump’s efforts to glorify it? Well, his supporters applaud the president’s actions, so that’s one difference.

But propaganda is propaganda, whether from the right or the left.

Trump has been increasingly opposing anti-racism education efforts while denying that the country has a problem with racial inequality. When asked about the country’s history of racial discrimination at a town hall gathering this week, Trump said “I hope there’s not a race problem” before going on to talk about his support in the polls from Black voters.

Contemporary politics aside, the real problem with Trump’s idea is that it’s far too limiting to talk about American history in such a monochromatic way. There is not a “patriotic” view of history, nor is there a “non-patriotic” view of history. There are the basic facts of “what happened” and then there are interpretations of what happened. The argument isn’t necessarily about America, it’s about the prism that we all look through as individuals to glean understanding from those facts of history. If you’re black, I daresay your interpretation of the same facts that a white person interprets will be different.

BAM: Trump Eviscerates the Noxious Marxism Behind the Riots and the 1619 Project

Is it a “wrong” interpretation? It is if the events being interpreted are wrenched out of context and other facts are ignored. That appears to be what Trump is railing against and what many of us on the right have been railing against for decades. The selective choice of “facts” that radically alters the interpretation of our national narrative is dishonest and does schoolchildren a disservice.

But is the best way to address the problem offering a counter-narrative just as dishonest, just as one-dimensional? I was given a “patriotic education” by the Sisters of Mercy (God bless them) at a private parochial school. The way that our “history” was taught guaranteed that we would love America, admire our founding, feel bad for the slaves and Indians, and celebrate the fact that we were the greatest nation on earth because God loved us and blessed us.

Not exactly penetrating scholarship.

America is a place of myth and legend. Its myths are glorious, its legends heroic. The reality of America has been shown to bring out the very best of the human race and let shine its noble qualities. But always, running underneath the glitz and gold has been a dark current of suffering, oppression, and evil.

The amazing thing is that the overseer’s lash existed alongside the miracle of American agriculture, the genius of the cotton gin, and the courage and fortitude of the southern soldier whose determination in the face of overwhelming odds can still be admired today — at least until we’re ordered not to admire it anymore.

America was born schizophrenic. “How is it we hear the loudest yelps for ‘freedom’ by the drivers of negro slaves?” asked the English man of letters Samuel Johnson during the Stamp Act crisis of 1764. What many on the left refer to as “hypocrisy” is an intellectual duality that allows our free self to exist in exactly the same place at exactly the same time as our oppressive self. It has been so since before our founding and will continue through Trump and on into the future as interpretations of what America means wax and wane between the extremes of self-love and self-hate.

Of course, American history isn’t locked up in a closet, guarded 24 hours a day by CIA agents. It’s all there, all of it. The good, the bad, the heroic, the ugly. Every sin ever committed by our government. Every sublime act of heroism and charity. It’s right in front of our noses — every possible interpretation of what happened in America’s past just a few keystrokes away.

In the end, how we interpret American history is a choice. And it would be far better to show kids how best to make that choice by teaching them a wide variety of viewpoints and interpretations than propagandize them by indoctrinating them with only one.

 

IT’S ON: UNDERCOVER JOURNALIST DAVID DALEIDEN BEHIND BABY BODY PARTS SCANDAL SUES PLANNED PARENTHOOD FOR DEFAMATION

BY TYLER O'NEIL

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

On Thursday, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) and its founder, David Daleiden, sued Planned Parenthood for defamation in federal court. Daleiden and CMP released a string of sting videos exposing Planned Parenthood employees’ shameful and illegal trafficking in aborted baby body parts in 2015. Even though the videos were accurate, Planned Parenthood claimed that they were doctored and false. Government officials even targeted Daleiden for prosecution. Yet some of Planned Parenthood’s business partners confessed to illegally selling body parts and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the undercover footage was accurate.

“Planned Parenthood admits my videos are true when under oath in federal court, but when speaking to the public, Planned Parenthood lies and calls the videos fake,” Daleiden said in a statement. “I have put my life on hold for five years to report, with video evidence, the trafficking of aborted infants that I and others witnessed at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. It is time for Planned Parenthood to face the truth.”

“Planned Parenthood has tremendous power and influence in our society. But even it must adhere to legal norms. We filed this lawsuit to hold PPFA accountable for damaging falsehoods it uttered concerning our clients’ groundbreaking journalism that exposed shocking practices it would rather keep hidden — for good reason,” Harmeet Dhillon, a lawyer representing Daleiden and CMP in the suit, said in a statement. “Planned Parenthood is not above the law. We look forward to the merits litigation of this lawsuit.”

“Instead of coming clean about its ruthless pursuit of profit from selling the remains of aborted children, Planned Parenthood tried to smear David Daleiden, the man who blew the whistle on its dirty secret,” Peter Breen, vice president and senior counsel for the Thomas More Society and another of Daleiden’s lawyers, added. “In its earlier lawsuit against David and the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood fought to avoid scrutiny of its illegal fetal tissue trafficking. This new lawsuit puts Planned Parenthood’s grisly business practices front and center, to prove the truth of the conclusions of David’s investigation, which were also confirmed and echoed by the United States Congress and other government officials.”

After CMP and Daleiden released the sting videos, which showed Planned Parenthood staff admitting to selling aborted baby body parts for profit, and one even joking about buying a Lamborghini with the profits, Planned Parenthood hired the firm Fusion GPS, now notorious for assembling the Trump-Russia dossier, to obscure the facts and suggest the videos were deceptively edited.

Many media outlets have claimed that the Fusion GPS report settled the matter, even though the report’s fine print acknowledged the veracity of the photos.

Planned Parenthood Would Gut the First Amendment to Silence Sting Videos

The Planned Parenthood sting videos were authentic

In 2017, the U.S. Department of Justice announced it had opened a federal investigation into Planned Parenthood and its business partners, prompted by the videos. Two of Planned Parenthood’s business partners in Orange County, Calif., admitted guilt for selling aborted baby body parts in a $7.8 million settlement. DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences acquired their profits “by viewing body parts as a commodity and illegally selling fetal tissues for valuable consideration,” District Attorney Tony Rackauckas explained in a statement.

In September 2018, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) terminated its contractswith Planned Parenthood partner Advanced Bioscience Resources because it could not be “sufficiently assured” that the company’s supply of fetal tissue complied with federal law. In January 2019, Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Edith Jones ruled that CMP’s footage was “authentic and not deceptively edited.”

Planned Parenthood officials admitted — in sworn deposition testimony that the CMP videos authentically captured their statements. Planned Parenthood Federation of America admitted in a federal trial that the words captured in the sting videos “were spoken by those persons.”

Yet on September 18, 2019, Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Melanie Newman accused Daleiden of launching a “multiyear illegal effort to manufacture a fake smear campaign against Planned Parenthood.” Planned Parenthood also tweeted that Daleiden and CMP had “created a false smear campaign against Planned Parenthood.”

The lawsuit claims that these two statements constitute defamation with actual malice against Daleiden and CMP. The lawsuit demands actual and punitive damages of at least $75,000, “including damages necessary to make Plaintiffs whole for the presumptive impairment to their reputation, personal humiliation, mental anguish and suffering; and punitive and exemplary damages, in an amount necessary to punish PPFA for its malicious conduct toward Plaintiffs.” The lawsuit also requests an injunction to force Planned Parenthood to retract these statements.

Planned Parenthood’s Melanie Newman condemned the lawsuit as a “desperate attempt” to “get publicity.”

“These baseless claims are not new. They are just another desperate attempt by a discredited source to get publicity,” she told Fox News. “Last fall, a jury — with all of the facts fully presented to it — decided that David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress intentionally broke the law in a multi-year, malicious campaign to advance their goals of banning safe, legal abortion in this country, and preventing Planned Parenthood from serving the patients who depend on us. The result: Daleiden was ordered to pay millions of dollars in damages. And, he still faces criminal charges.”

Impact on 2020

This lawsuit is also important during the 2020 presidential race. When Kamala Harris — now Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate — was attorney general of California, her office searched Daleiden’s home, seizing his video footage and preparing a legal case against him. Harris has received at least $81,000 from Planned Parenthood. In 2017, Harris’s successor, Xavier Becerra (another politician bankrolled by Planned Parenthood), filed 15 felony charges against CMP and Daleiden.

Peter Breen, special counsel at the Thomas More Society, briefed PJ Media on the ongoing case last July. He argued that Daleiden’s filming was taken in “entirely public places.”

“I could point you to undercover investigations that are being shown on the evening news in Los Angeles. Under the standard they are applying to David, those would be felonies,” the lawyer argued. “The other reporters are being lauded for their brave investigative techniques, but David is being prosecuted.”

“I would say this is an abuse of the criminal process,” Breen told PJ Media.

Pro-choice law professors have defended Daleiden’s right to engage in undercover journalism.

“The Planned Parenthood case reveals that activists – and journalists – might… have to go to prison for undercover reporting if they violate any laws to gain access to the targets of their investigation,” Sherry F. Cobb and Michael C. Dorf, professors of law at Cornell University and authors of Beating Hearts: Abortion and Animal Rights, wrote in 2016. They condemned the charges against Daleiden as “a stunning act of legal jujitsu” that could “chill undercover journalists and activists everywhere.”

If CMP and Daleiden prevail in this lawsuit, that will serve as a damning indictment to Kamala Harris, whose office launched the criminal investigation against them. This news should also remind Americans of Harris’ tyrannical past — which is extremely relevant because most Americans have said that if Joe Biden is elected in November, he will not serve out his term.

U.S. REIMPOSES UN SANCTIONS ON IRAN DESPITE EUROPE’S OPPOSITION

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has announced that the United States will reimpose United Nations sanctions on Iran after the sanctions had been lifted in 2015 by Barack Obama as part of a nuclear deal with Tehran.

This is the Obama-promised sanctions “snapback” that was part of the nuclear deal.

Before getting sanctions relief, Iran has to take significant, concrete steps like removing centrifuges and getting rid of its stockpile. If Iran violates the agreement over the next decade, all of the sanctions can snap back into place.  We won’t need the support of other members of the U.N. Security Council; America can trigger snapback on our own.

Iran removed centrifuges and replaced them with machines three times more efficient. They shipped off their stockpile of enriched uranium, only to have Russia start sending it back less than three years later.

And Obama lied about a sanctions “snapback.” Pompeo announced the sanctions are snapped back but the rest of the world is refusing to join us.

The Hill:

“The United States expects all UN Member States to fully comply with their obligations to implement these measures,” Pompeo said in a statement. “In addition to the arms embargo, this includes restrictions such as the ban on Iran engaging in enrichment and reprocessing-related activities, the prohibition on ballistic missile testing and development by Iran, and sanctions on the transfer of nuclear- and missile-related technologies to Iran, among others.”

There will be a price to pay for our allies who don’t join us in reimposing sanctions.

Pompeo said that if UN Member States don’t back the sanctions, the U.S. “is prepared to use our domestic authorities to impose consequences for those failures and ensure that Iran does not reap the benefits of UN-prohibited activity.”

“In the coming days, the United States will announce a range of additional measures to strengthen implementation of UN sanctions and hold violators accountable,” Pompeo added.

Following the lifting of sanctions in 2015, Iran signed billions of dollars in business deals with Europeans to increase trade and exploit natural resources. This is the major reason Europeans won’t back our sanctions play with Iran today.

The Iran deal was always more about giving the Europeans a way out of their commitments to back the U.S. if we decided to go to war with Iran over the ayatollahs’ nuclear program than it was about seriously trying to prevent Iran from getting the bomb. Obama got to say he made “history” and the Europeans breathed a sigh of relief and eagerly got in line to sign commercial deals with the Iranians. In retrospect, Iran was mildly inconvenienced in its quest for a bomb — an effort it has restarted in earnest.

Iranian Ambassador to the U.N. Majid Takht Ravanchi said the sanctions were “null and void.”

‘US’ illegal & false ‘deadline’ has come and gone.” Ravanchi wrote on Twitter, warning that the U.S. “swimming against int’l currents will only bring it more isolation.”

A terrorist state working to get the ultimate weapon is receiving tacit support from our allies because joining us would cost them too much.
