Planned Genocide with another "thrust" to the youth of America.
"Win an iPod. Get two free movie tickets. Take ten dollars off your first visit. These are some of the schemes Planned Parenthood is using to lure teen-agers into its deadly facilities," said Douglas R. Scott, president of Life Decisions International (LDI). "Planned Parenthood has resorted to common corporate tactics in an effort to get young people to encourage their peers to voluntarily become the pro-abortion group's new victims. Just how low and disgusting can Planned Parenthood get?"
Anyone who makes an appointment at one of the eight facilities run by Planned Parenthood Golden Gate (PPGG) before April 30, 2006, can enter to win an iPod. "Now which age group is most likely to be swayed by this kind of gimmick?" Scott asked. "This incentive is clearly aimed at young people."

Apparently Jill Carroll has been released. For that we may all be thankful. Thankful that is, IF this story has real merit.
I have my doubts. Those doubts were really fueled when this story reported that Jill might have been rescued back in January, a story I couldn't get confirmation on, but was "curious'. As I noted back here, something just isn't right about this story. I'm not the only one who's feelers are tingling.
Again, if my suspicions are correct, this wouldn't be the first time a kidnapping has been faked for political points.
Therefore it is going to be interesting to see her interviews in the next few days to see what she says about her captors.
Stay tuned there may be more to the story...
UPDATE: There IS more to the story. I'm still weeding through additional information from some folks who know, but for a little more back ground here is a taste from another blogger. He's close.
AJ Strata tipped me to this story in the Washington Times where several former FISA judges found:
"..that President Bush did not act illegally when he created by executive order a wiretapping program conducted by the National Security Agency (NSA).
The five judges testifying before the committee said they could not speak specifically to the NSA listening program without being briefed on it, but that a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act does not override the president's constitutional authority to spy on suspected international agents under executive order. "
That's it folks! Stick a fork in it.
Ah, you didn't think the MSM would leave it at that now do you?
So now it appears (AKA NSA leak suspect # 3) NY Times writer, Eric Lichtblau attempts a little "literary license" by re-writing the events:
"Five former judges on the nation's most secretive court, including one who resigned in apparent protest over President Bush's domestic eavesdro…
"For almost three years, the anti-war protesters have kept up the drumbeat: “Bush lied and people died.” Because weapons of mass destruction (WMD) were not found in Iraq, an endless stream of commentators continues to declare that Saddam Hussein was not the serious threat the administration claimed him to be. The critics usually go even further, and assert that sanctions and the destruction of WMD facilities by U.N. investigators had done so much damage to WMD infrastructure that it would have taken Saddam years to rebuild it even to a minimal capacity.
But these claims ignore huge amounts of contrary evidence; and most of this evidence can be found in the final report of the Iraqi Survey Group (ISG) — the very same report that many critics hold up as proof positive that Iraq was not a WMD threat. The evidence found by the ISG (an investigative commission set up by the Bush administration after the invasion of Iraq) co…
"WASHINGTON, D.C. — A federal appeals court ruled today that Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., violated federal law by turning over an illegally taped telephone call to reporters nearly a decade ago.
In a 2-1 opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that McDermott violated the rights of House Majority Leader John Boehner, who was heard on the 1996 call involving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
The court ordered McDermott to pay Boehner more than $700,000 for leaking the taped conversation. The figure includes $60,000 in damages and more than $600,000 in legal costs.
McDermott leaked a tape of a 1996 cell phone call involving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to The New York Times and other news organizations.
The call included discussion by Gingrich, R-Ga., and other House GOP leaders about a House ethics committee investigation of Gingrich. Boehner, R-Ohio, was a Gingrich lieutenant at the time and is…
No big news here, we were all expecting a shake up, but this really isn't it. Card, like a lot of public servants can make a heck of lot more money on the outside (ask Newt), and being COS takes a lot of time from family.
"Bush said Card had approached him earlier this month about the possibility of stepping down, and Bush accepted his offer this weekend, when the two were at Camp David.
"He's been here 5-1/2 years. The average tenure of chief of staff is two years," said a senior administration official, who spoke before the announcement, but refused to be named so as not to upstage the president. "Change can be good and necessary and that's what they had discussed."
Makes sense. But the "senseless" think not as the crazy left is looking for the "underlying" reasons", one thing I know is that Andy had a better memory than Clinton's absent minded COS, who testified in court or before Congress said that they didn't …
After my previous post (and the lively response), I thought a bit of a clarification is in order.
1. America is the land of the free and home of the brave. I welcome all legal immigrants who enter the US legally. I am NOT for this kind of activity whatsoever. Away with them. We have ONE flag, The Stars and Stripes. We are a MELTING POT which means that people from different cultures come from all over the world to make ONE people. Within our differing groups we have and enjoy our particular culture with the freedom to do so. But we are NOT a multi-cultural Nation.
This is the United States of America - a sovereign nation. Clear enough?
Now, saying that, understand that we are not going to find an easy solution to this problem of illegal immigration. We're about 100 years too late. So we are not going to "round 'em up and lock 'em up", at least not in LA (Arizona may be a possibility though), but the fact is that the lax enforcement of our immigration…
Again, he isn't the first or last Christian to be so persecuted by Islam.
"Hundreds of people protested in Afghanistan on Monday against a court's decision to drop a case against a man who converted from Islam to Christianity, while an official said discussions were underway to determine when he would be released.
Officials said the case was dropped Sunday partially because of concerns that Abdul Rahman is mentally unfit to face trial. The move also followed strong pressure from Western governments.
Prosecutors have said they want doctors to examine Rahman, but they have not confirmed that he would be released. Prosecutor Sarinwal Zamari said state attorneys were working on the case Monday and an announcement would be made later in the day. He declined to elaborate.
An Afghan official closely involved with the case told The Associated Press that the 41-year-old would be released, but authorities were debating how and when it would be done.…
"POLICHARKI, Afghanistan (AP) - An Afghan court has dismissed case against a man who converted from Islam to Christianity for lack of evidence, an official said Sunday.
The court, and Afghan President Hamid Karzai, had been under intense international pressure to drop the case against Abdul Rahman, who faced a possible death sentence for his public conversion.
Some Islamic clerics had called for his execution, saying Rahman would face danger from his countrymen if he were released. On Sunday, he was moved to a notorious maximum-security prison outside Kabul that is also home to hundreds of Taliban and al-Qaida militants. The move to Policharki Prison came after detainees threatened his life at an overcrowded police holding facility in central Kabul, a court official said on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media. Gen. Shahmir Amirpur, who is in charge of Policharki, confirmed the move and said Rahman had also bee…
