151002 – Update: Predictable and a disgusting example of the “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” alive and well.  There are now 446,000 Google hits on this garbage.

154 google hits at last count with these words:

Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett threw Hillary Clinton under the bus Wednesday at the Washington Ideas Forum, where she told interviewer Andrea Mitchell that the White House gave Clinton guidance forbidding her from using private email.”


Not True. My interpretation is that Jarrett said there was guidance to turn over emails from personal servers, and that’s what Clinton is doing.

Here is the interview. You decide:


PS: When I watched it, the sound and visual were not synced.

Here are the Oversight and Reform Hearing uTubes and documents. I hope they are complete, you never know with uTube:

Planned Parenthood’s Taxpayer Funding

All together, the uTubes are a few hours of listening and watching. The first part of Part 3 with Congressman Clay discusses how PP standards have been within the law and that the MO. investigation found no wrongdoing.

Yes, Planned Parenthood could probably survive without Federal Funds, but we all know this is about whether or not women, men and families would receive Medicaid service on the reduced funds.

Rep. Jackson Lee from Texas, spoke very well to the issue of mixing apples and potatoes, when it came to the loss of medical access versus abortion, and the overturning of the unconstitutional Texas Law. 25% of Texan women lost access, especially in rural areas, after July 2013.

David Daleiden, who was responsible for the edited PP videos, has been ordered to turn over the complete and raw videos for his PP sting.   According to Rep. Lee,  Daleiden may plead the 5th over his unwarranted (illegal) investigation, which was determined to provide no evidentiary basis against PP.

The House has been very busy making up new bills (See H.R.3495.)regarding women’s health care. centered around the idea that one way to reduce the impact of aPlanned Parenthood is to allow the states more latitude in determining whether they should allow federal funds to be spent on abortion providers. To be clear, federal funds already are not spent on abortion, except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the live of the mother. (Keep in mind  one point of attack has been to require proof meaning a trial or confession-something that could culminate after the birth. )

GovTrack.Us indicates that 49 abortion referenced bills have been introduced, referred to committee, and/or passed by the House THIS year. See: Abortion. That list doesn’t include H.R.3495 or H. Res. 444.

These current bills are specifically an attempt to eliminate the use of Medicaid funds by those folks who have no other way to pay for the range of health services, that PP provides. if you take Medicaid from Planned Parenthood, you prevent people on Medicaid from utilizing their range of services at 700 locations around the country. This is the worst kind of classist, sexist, racist evil.

HRC put out a “Briefing” today that includes a list of Republican candiates’ statements on Planned Parenthood:



This week acknowledges the continuing struggle in the US to provide reading freedom, which various booksellers, along with the American Library Association, promote.

150915 – GOP Debates

If you don’t get CNN, or missed them, below find the annotated transcripts of the undercard and main debates as provided by WAPO:

Full transcript: Undercard GOP debate – The Washington Post

Wednesday’s GOP debate transcript, annotated – The Washington Post

Frankly I’d always rather read the transcripts. They might have actually said something you missed in the show.

Update:150917 –  The advisory has been canceled.
Don’t go surfing tonight and maybe pick a route other than the Pacific Coast Hwy:

A tsunami advisory has been issued for a 300-mile stretch of the California coast after a powerful magnitude-8.3 earthquake hit off the coast of Chile.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued the advisory Wednesday night for an area stretching from the southern end of Orange County to Ragged Point about 50 miles northwest of San Luis Obispo.

A tsunami advisory falls short of a tsunami warning, and waves inundating the land are not expected.

It is expected to bring strong currents and dangerous waves to those in or very near the water, and the current could stay powerful for several hours.

The effects are expected to be first felt in Orange County at about 4:45 a.m. Pacific time Thursday, with areas further north feeling the effects in the following minutes.

We are treated to yet another exercise in anti-Hillary vitriol from Maureen Dowd. As usual, Dowd’s writing seethes with Hillary hatred. What’s worse is that in this column, Dowd uses the tragic death of Beau Biden as a platform to smear Hillary. Dowd’s words are chosen meticulously – they fit perfectly into the narratives that have been developed to smear Hillary over decades. Delivering such excessive negativity in one piece is not opinion writing. It is not journalism.
