“I lied through my teeth” 1

By Tom Quiner

The year was 1995.

The partial-birth abortion debate raged.  The Executive Director of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers went on ABC’s Nightline.  Ron Fitzsimmons said partial birth abortion, the procedure where the fetus’ skull is crushed and its brains suctioned, was only performed in situations to save the mother’s life.  He said it was rare.

Sixteen months later, he admitted he “he lied through his teeth.”

The willingness for a spokesman for an industry, in this case  the abortion industy, to lie through his teeth on such a major issue is difficult to shake.

That leads me to the September 5th editorial by The Des Moines Register.  Here is what they said:

“… Planned Parenthood (PP) of the Heartland has used telemedicine as it was intended: to expand access to legal health services in rural Iowa. The challenge of that smart approach should prompt state leaders to update laws and policies – to give Iowans increased access to health care, including abortion, through the use of technology.”

Notice what the Register is saying here.  The law needs to be updated.  In other words, they are acknowledging in a rather sneaky way that PP is violating abortion laws on the books, laws that state a physician needs to be present to terminate the human life in the womb.

The Register goes on to say:

“Now it’s up to Iowa leaders to:

– Re-evaluate outdated abortion laws in this state.

The law requiring physicians to perform abortions made sense when all abortions were surgical procedures. But that requirement is called into question now that women are increasingly choosing to take a drug….

Iowa should take a step forward in fostering 21st century medicine – including using it to give women access to a legal medical procedure.”

The Register is saying that Planned Parenthood isn’t wrong in breaking the law. Rather, it is the law that is wrong.  They label their Pro-Life critics as anti-choice.  I guess that makes The Register and PP anti-law.

Why is the Register so supportive of the illegal Tele-Med abortion scheme?  Because they believe PP when they say 1500 hundred women who have had the illegal abortions over the past two years haven’t had any complications.  Not even one.

The PP Federation states, regarding RU-486:

“Complete abortion will occur in 96–97 percent of women who choose mifepristone. In the small percentage of cases that medication abortion fails, other abortion procedures are required to end the pregnancies.”

Here’s what the problem will be in the 3 to 4 percent of the abortions that go bad, according to the Planned Parenthood Federation:

  • an allergic reaction to either of the pills
  • incomplete abortion – part of the pregnancy [baby] is left inside the uterus
  • infection
  • undetected ectopic pregnancy
  • very heavy bleeding
  • Out of 1500 of the illegal telemed abortions using the RU-486 abortion pill, 45 to 60 of them should have experienced complications according to their own publicly stated studies.  And yet, inexplicably, these 1500 telemed abortions came off without a hitch.

    Do you buy it?  The Register does.

    In light of a past paucity of veracity in this industry, I’m skeptical.  But even if we have another situation of the abortion industry lying through their teeth about the “safety” of this procedure, it’s nonetheless all a lie.  A baby dies in the womb.  There’s nothing safe about that.

    Telemed abortion will kill more Iowans.  PP has a problem: they’re having trouble finding doctors willing to kill babies in the womb.  The video at the top of this article eloquently explains why.

    An impersonal telemed abortion is an easier way to end a human life.  It’s illegal. It’s lucrative for PP.  No one is stopping it.  The Register applauds it.

    Look at the video above.  Are you okay with killing it?

    The magnificent World Trade Center Reply

    By Tom Quiner

    I remember sitting on the top floor of the World Trade Center very well.  The date was July 19th, 1989.

    The date stuck with me, because that was the day that United Flight 232 crash landed in Sioux City, Iowa, killing 111 of its 285 passengers. I was doing a lot of traveling in those days.  The thought of getting on a plane the next day didn’t exactly thrill me.

    I quickly forgot about the Sioux City incident when I stepped out of my cab.

    I marveled at the sheer splendor of the two gleaming towers.  This Iowa hick was overwhelmed.  What a feat for man to construct such edifices!

    The elevator to the top was a quick ride, and my stomach flip-flopped.

    Manhattan sparkled below me and around me.  I was truly on top of the world as I sipped on my cocktail and enjoyed the experience with clients.

    It’s funny the things you remember.  Looking out the window at the other tower, my mind went back to an incident that took place on August 7th, 1974.  You probably remember it.  A guy named Philippe Petit, using a cross bow, strung a cable from the top of one tower to the other.  He then proceeded to walk across the tight rope 110 stories above the earth!

    I do not like heights.  Just the thought of Mr. Petit’s escapade made my stomach flip-flop again.  Nonetheless, his crazy stunt was amazing.  Thanks to another marvel of modern man, YouTube, I share it with you today.  Below is the trailer for a documentary about the event, called Man on Wire.

    “We’re not at war against Islam” 2

    By Tom Quiner

    Thus said the President:

    “We are not at war against Islam. We are at war against terrorist organizations that have distorted Islam or falsely used the banner of Islam. If we’re going to deal with the problems Ed Henry was talking about – reducing the terrorist threat – we need all the allies we can get.”

    Are we really at war against terrorism when the President sent the following directive to speech writers soon after his arrival at the White House:

    “this administration prefers to avoid using the term Long War or Global War On Terror (Gwot) … please pass this on to your speechwriters”

    The President prefers to call these efforts “overseas contingency operations.”

    Contrast this rhetoric with that of former President Bush:

    the war on terror “will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated”.

    So, while the President manages our contingency operations overseas, it is fair to ask then, who exactly IS the enemy?  While we ponder that question, I will present some politically incorrect recent news, news that usually won’t see the light of day in the mainstream media (MSM):

    Yesterday, in Yala, Thailand: Muslim separatists shoot a 52-year-old Buddhist in the head then kick his body under a bridge.

    Yesterday, in Vladikavkaz, Russia:  A Shahid drives an explosives-laden vehicle into a market, blasting seventeen shoppers to bits.

    Yesterday, in Mogadishu, Somalia:  Five Fedayeen suicide bombers storm an airport and kill nine others, including two women.

    Yesterday, in Kurram, Pakistan: Militants murder ten bus passengers with an explosive device.

    Yesterday, in Diyala, Iraq: A woman is beheaded in her own home by suspected al-Qaeda ‘insurgents’.

    Yesterday, in Muqdadiya, India:  A cleric is beheaded and set on fire by “Freedom Fighters.”

    The common link with yesterday’s mass murders:  they were committed in the name of the Islamic faith.

    Carnage in the name of Allah is a daily occurrence around the world.

    Could you imagine the outcry if this daily carnage was taking place in the name of Christ?

    The political Left in this country and around the world hold the belief that somehow the Western world has brought on all of this carnage by our actions towards Muslims around the world.  Three experts refute the Left’s thesis.

    These experts include the prophet Muhammad;  Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini; and Osama bin Laden.

    Bin Laden expressed their shared vision this way:

    “I was ordered to fight the people until they say ‘there is no god but Allah, and his prophet Muhammad.’ “

    He didn’t limit the scope of the fight to Iraq or Afghanistan or Israel.  The Left implies that the root cause of terrorism is Western imperialism.  Bin Laden makes it clear through his rhetoric and Islamic violence throughout the world that this premise is false.  In fact, the exact opposite is true.  Muslim imperialism has led to attacks and deaths in India, Pakistan, Thailand, Somalia, Kenya, Russia, and Iraq  yesterday alone.   It is important to recognize that most Muslims reject Muslim imperialism.  It is equally important for the rest of the world to understand that Muslim imperialists want us to convert … or die.

    Another leading voice of Islam was the Ayatolla Khomeini.  Here are his views on Israel:

    “This regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time.”

    “If one permits an infidel to continue in his role as a corrupter of the earth, his moral suffering will be all the worse. If one kills the infidel, and this stops him from perpetrating his misdeeds, his death will be a blessing to him.”

    Peace and coexistence are impossible with imperialist Muslims according to the Khomeini’s and Bin Laden’s of the world.  Mohammed himself said in the Koran 9:5:

    “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

    What is the common thread with worldwide terrorism?  Islam.

    The President says we’re not at war against Islam.  That may be true.  But then it’s fair to ask: is Islam at war with us?  Ask the families of the victims of 9/11.
