A fresh trove of documents released by a House panel probing abortion clinics and companies trading in body parts shows the extent of their fetal tissue harvesting operation — and what the committee’s chairwoman alleges are violations of the law. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., head of the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, is now making a fresh request for a federal probe. “I believe the investigation will move forward because this is so appalling,” she told FoxNews.com One of the more striking exchanges was contained in a set of January 2015 emails. When a customer inquired with company StemExpress about the availability of aborted tissue, an employee promptly emailed back seemingly while an abortion was under way: “There is one case currently in the room, I will let you know how the limbs and calvarium [skull] look to see if you are able to take them in about fifteen minutes.” Less than an hour later, the employee reported, “the calvarium is mostly intact,” while “the limbs … are totally intact.” The House committee for months has been probing whether abortion clinics and companies buying and selling body parts in exchanges like this were profiting – which, if so, would be a felony under a law signed by President Bill Clinton. StemExpress, which worked with Planned Parenthood, is a California-based company that procures body parts and fetal tissue and sells to researchers. “What we have seen is how this has moved to a business and contractual agreements,” Blackburn said. Blackburn claims it appears some technicians even reviewed medical files without initial permission from patients. She has asked the Department of Health and Human Services to probe whether StemExpress and three California abortion clinics might have shared so much information that federal privacy law and research regulations were violated. The three clinics under review that contracted with StemExpress are Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, which says it has more than 30 centers throughout California and Nevada; Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific; and Family Planning Specialist Medical Group. The select panel was appointed after undercover videos seemingly showed Planned Parenthood staff trying to sell aborted baby body parts. Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who addressed the Planned Parenthood Action Fund in Washington Friday, has adamantly defended the group against allegations of wrongdoing. Democrats have criticized the investigation and recently said the panel is putting people in danger.
Soo.. Let me get his straight.. Hillary, and the rest of her fascist Democrat supporters, believe that looking into this seemingly barbaric situation is “putting people in danger.” Huh? How’s that? It’s all smoke and mirrors, of course. Hillary and these other Dems get a LOT of money from Planned Parenthood (which gets a lot of money from we-the-taxpayers), and these other abortion providers. So they feel obligated to come to PP’s defense, and they use code words like “women’s healthcare.” To them, if you are investigating PP, you are a mean insensitive Republican who is putting women at risk, and so on. It’s the same old vomit-worthy talking points from the same old play book that the Dems play over and over and over. This isn’t about whether or not abortion should be legal. For the record, we believe it SHOULD be legal, subject to common sense restrictions and regulations. And yet, that is exactly the veiled argument that Hillary and the rest of these sleazy Dems are suggesting to cloud the discussion. What some of these clinics, and StemExpress, are doing is beyond barbaric. So, kudos to Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and her committee for looking into this horrifying, and barbaric, underground cottage industry. Anyway, to read the rest of this disturbing article, click on the text above.
Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee is firing back at President Obama for his Federal Communications Commission (FCC) led internet takeover–which the administration bills as “net neutrality” and critics call “net neutering”–saying it can lead to censorship. Still Democrats are backing the President, saying his policies mean equal access for all. The FCC responded to President Obama’s push for Net-Neutrality to regulate the internet with a 3-2 vote over objections from some Republicans. According to Blackburn’s office, the courts have previously rejected the FCC’s attempts to regulate the internet. Net neutrality supporters say the regulations will increase investment in internet based services. The rules prohibit broadband providers from blocking or regulating internet traffic in a selective manner. According to the Tennessee Republican, there is no need for the FCC to be preceding internet service providers because the internet has worked effectively for decades. “The internet is not broken, it does not need the intervention of the FCC,” Blackburn said. “What this in essence does is to give the federal government the right to determine priority and value to content – so they’re ultimately going to be able to censor everything that you have.” Blackburn added. “We don’t need this. It will run up costs and lead to new regulations and new taxes,”
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is exactly right!! Obama and his fascist FCC have won round one in his battle to have the federal government take over control of the internet, which is an awful notion. But, it’s FAR from over as it’s already in court, and the federal courts, thus far, have pushed back on Obama’s nazi-istic aspirations as it relates to the internet. Let’s hope that the they give Obama and the FCC’s latest ruling yet another epic smackdown. The internet is working just fine. And, if someone doesn’t like their carrier, they can go with another one. That’s how the free market works…and everyone wins when it’s left alone. Each time Obama and his big government liberals have taken over anything, it’s been a complete disaster. Just look at Obamacare, and the web site, and on and on. It’s been nothing but a trainwreck from day one. Why on earth would we want to impose on the internet what those morons in the White House have done to our healthcare?!?
Jeff Sessions: Congress Must Oppose House, Senate Border Bills
Excellent! Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is EXACTLY right here! He gets it. Watch this video of him on the floor of the Senate making his case. I saw Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) talking about this as well the other day. She is equally spot on. The House needs to include this necessary language and get it passed before they go on their summer recess, or Obama WILL exploit the opportunity and grant all sorts of amnesty while Congress is out of town. NOW is the time to call/email your member of Congress and tell them to include the Senate’s restrictive language on Obama’s ability to unilaterally, and unlawfully, grant amnesty etc using executive action. And, of course, while you’re on the phone or emailing them, be sure to tell them to BUILD THE WALL!!
