A 5th Planned Parenthood video just dropped, and it’s as bad as all the others. This one has the ghouls talking about how they can perform the abortion in a specific way to ensure “intact fetal cadavers” as well as bragging how this can impact the “bottom line.”

Remember when Planned Parenthood was cool with secretly recorded video? We do! [pic]

One of Planned Parenthood’s — and their supporters’ — most trusty complaints when it comes to being exposed as the baby butchers they are is about how the damning videos were obtained. Secrecy is bad, they cry! We were duped, they sputter!

But as tweeter @back_ttys reminds us, it wasn’t so long ago that Planned Parenthood was singing a different tune:

Oh, and let’s not forget their angry claims that they’re just victims of “deceptive editing.” Turns out that outrage is, shall we say, selective.

Remember this one?

Planned Parenthood slams Live Action for ‘edited videotapes,’ slimes Romney in deceptively edited ad; Update: NYT agrees

Not only has Planned Parenthood’s butchery been laid bare, but so has their hypocrisy.

What Uber Can Teach Us About American Government

Originally posted on Brian Ruddock:

uber nycUber has been the target of politicians seemingly from the second it came to market. New York mayor Bill de Blasio has taken his bullying a step further than most pols, and thankfully Uber is pushing back. While the outcome of this battle remains unclear, Uber v. New York can teach us quite a bit about the current state of American government and politics.

THE SITUATION IN NEW YORK

New York City has over 8.5 million residents. Its subway system is among the best in the world but remains overcrowded, unreliable, and, at later hours, unsafe. The city’s bus system is similarly well-designed, but even in conjunction with subways, is not a sufficient solution for many New Yorkers’ travel needs.

Taxis are controlled by the city of New York; supply is artificially constrained by making would-be drivers pay exorbitant licensing fees that can cost in the tens of thousands of…

Seven Subtle Symptoms of Pride

One of the seven deadly sins arranged on a typeface

by Fabienne Harford from desiringGod

Pride will kill you. Forever. Pride is the sin most likely to keep you from crying out for a Savior. Those who think they are well will not look for a doctor.

As seriously dangerous as pride is, it’s equally hard to spot. When it comes to diagnosing our hearts, those of us who have the disease of pride have a challenging time identifying our sickness. Pride infects our eyesight, causing us to view ourselves through a lens that colors and distorts reality. Pride will paint even our ugliness in sin as beautiful and commendable.

We can’t conclude that we don’t struggle with pride because we don’t see pride in our hearts. The comfortable moments when I pat myself on the back for how well I am doing are the moments that should alarm me the most. I need to reach for the glasses of Christ-like humility, remembering that nothing good dwells in my flesh, and search my heart for secret pride and its symptoms.

EYE BLEACH ADVISORY: Portland Naked Bike Ride 2015

On Saturday, June 27th, our friend, Leo Stratton, grabbed his video camera and recorded this yearly Portland, OR event – The Naked Bike Ride.  Approximately 10 to 20,000 bicyclists take to the streets to protest the use of fossil fuels, women’s rights, minority justice, and maybe just irritation and chafing, to ride around the city naked without fear of punishment.  This is the first of several videos (oh yeah, he has more of this lunacy on video) and this is an hour before the race hits the streets of S.E. Portland. Watch at your own risk as you will not be able to unsee these people and their assorted bums, wobbly bits, body hair and body paint.

 

 

Rand Paul: Government Should Get Out of the Marriage Business Altogether

Featured Image -- 2005

Originally posted on TIME:

While I disagree with Supreme Court’s redefinition of marriage, I believe that all Americans have the right to contract.

The Constitution is silent on the question of marriage because marriage has always been a local issue. Our founding fathers went to the local courthouse to be married, not to Washington, D.C.

I’ve often said I don’t want my guns or my marriage registered in Washington.

Those who disagree with the recent Supreme Court ruling argue that the court should not overturn the will of legislative majorities. Those who favor the Supreme Court ruling argue that the 14th Amendment protects rights from legislative majorities.

Do consenting adults have a right to contract with other consenting adults? Supporters of the Supreme Court’s decision argue yes but they argue no when it comes to economic liberties, like contracts regarding wages.

It seems some rights are more equal than others.

Marriage, though a contract…

Tesla’s $3,000 Powerwall Will Let Households Run Entirely On Solar Energy

Featured Image -- 2000

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

You almost certainly associate Tesla with cars — very cool cars — but the company has an even grander vision beyond that. Today, CEO and founder Elon Musk unveiled ‘Tesla Energy’ — a new business arm that is focused on ending our dependence on grid power and switching instead to solar energy.

The first Tesla Energy product is ‘Powerwall Home Battery,’ a stationary battery that can power a household without requiring the grid. The battery is rechargeable lithium-ion — it uses Tesla’s existing battery tech — and can be fixed to a wall, removing much of the existing complexity around using a local power source.

“The issue with existing batteries is that they suck,” Musk said in a press conference announcing Tesla Energy. “They are expensive, unreliable and bad in every way.”

Tesla’s solution, he said, is different.

For one thing, the company’s batteries cost $3,500 for 10kWh and $3,000 for 7kWh — add your snarky…

GoFundMe updates terms after pulling fundraiser for shuttered Christian bakery

You might recall when the Christian-owned Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana, closed due to threats after the owner told a reporter that she would not agree to cater a gay wedding if asked, although she would never deny service based on a customer’s sexual orientation or religion. (Saturday Night Live’s Cecily Strong even managed to work in an awkward and unfunny dig at “Indiana pizza” during her routine at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.)

Supporters set up a spectacularly successful fundraiser on GoFundMe to keep the pizzeria afloat while the dust settled. It was so successful, in fact, an employee of CBS6 in Richmond, Va., with no evidence whatsoever, reported the fundraiser for fraud — “just in case.”

A similar fundraiser was set up to help Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of “Sweet Cakes by Melissa,” to pay a judgment of $135,000. The Oregon bakery closed in 2013 after two lesbians filed a civil rights complaint, citing “emotional, mental, and physical…
