Wouldn’t be so sure about that Cap’n...

“My code of modern Amazonism says that nature’s fascist scheme of menstruation and procreation should be defied, as a gross infringement of woman’s free will….As a libertarian, I support unrestricted access to abortion because I have reasoned that my absolute right to my body takes precedence over the brute claims of mother nature, who wants to reduce women to their animal function as breeders.”

Jeff Carlson has reviewed more secret testimony.

DOJ Prevented FBI From Pursuing Gross Negligence Charges Against Clinton

Early in the Hillary Clinton email case, the Department of Justice reached a decision that would have far-reaching implications in the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server.

The Justice Department (DOJ), under then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, decided to set an unusually high threshold for prosecution of Clinton, effectively ensuring from the outset that she would not be charged.

In order for Clinton to be prosecuted, the DOJ required the FBI to establish evidence of intent—even though the gross negligence statute explicitly does not require this.

This meant that the FBI would have needed to find a smoking gun, such as an email or an admission made during FBI questioning, revealing Clinton or her aides knowingly set up the private email server to send classified information.

...

Rep. Ratcliffe: Okay. And that’s — I think, when you talk about intent, that’s certainly true under part of 18 793(f), but it sounds like you all just blew over gross negligence.

Ms. Page: We did not blow over gross negligence. We, in fact — and, in fact, the Director — because on its face, it did seem like, well, maybe there’s a potential here for this to be the charge. And we had multiple conversations, multiple conversations with the Justice Department about charging gross negligence.

Page made clear during her testimony that the DOJ had decided that due to “constitutional vagueness” a charge of gross negligence would not be supported without accompanying proof of intent—a seemingly oxymoronic position:

Rep. Ratcliffe: Okay. So let me if I can, I know I’m testing your memory, but when you say advice you got from the Department, you’re making it sound like it was the Department that told you: You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to —

Ms. Page: That is correct.

Rep. Ratcliffe: — bring a case based on that.

Hey, Captain!

I've avoided politics so much that I'm only certain that Trump is still president because I figured anonamom would send me an email if he'd been impeached or shot. Seriously. I swiped my phone's home screen to the left the other day to check my calendar, and accidentally saw the top news feed and the phrase 'New Green Deal'. That's all I need to know about the state of affairs in our country...

--PIN, I agree. Looks like she had a rhinoplasty (nose job), aged a few years and lost some weight. The big difference though is the quality of the light.--

I'm just a humble amateur painter and sculptor but the biggest difference between the two pictures, and one which renders them largely impossible to compare, is the distortion in one or the other of width and height. No plastic surgeon stretched her head vertically and squeezed it on the horizontal plane or vice versa. Moreover, we don't know the ages of those shots so we don't know if she was even done maturing in the left hand photo.

I actually hate to say this but those who favor unrestricted abortion at any time and are now dabbling their toes in the infanticide waters are intellectually and morally more coherent than those like Paglia who favor unrestricted abortion but make some indefensible argument that the length of the birth canal is somehow the distance between life and death and humanity vs the property of the mother.

I'm guessing it was a good time for her. She's only two years older than I am so I can understand how she became enamoured with the times, plus she had Harold Bloom as a mentor so I could see her getting so wrapped up in her pursuits that she was blind to the wreckage in progress around her and by the time that she recognized the rot in academia thought it was a separate unrelated phenomenon.

those who favor unrestricted abortion at any time and are now dabbling their toes in the infanticide waters are intellectually and morally more coherent than those like Paglia

That may be so, if being 100% immoral qualifies as "morally more consistent" than someone who splits the difference between the two poles of good and evil. I think I might prefer the latter as being someone I could reason with and possibly persuade. And I'd prefer the morally inconsistent end result of, say, abortion allowed only in the first trimester to where we seem to be heading now, which is some sort of optional infanticide in the first week after birth.

I am a staunch Federalist but the right to life was the first Creator-derived right mentioned as to why this union was formed.
If the union can't, or worse, won't protect the first right, what chance does it have of protecting the others. and if it can't protect the first right by what manner do we presume it will survive or even deserves to?

--And I'd prefer the morally inconsistent end result of, say, abortion allowed only in the first trimester to where we seem to be heading now, which is some sort of optional infanticide in the first week after birth.--

My point, which I didn't make too clearly is, the incoherent argument usually loses to the coherent one.

I really hadn't given abortion much thought in recent years. I didn't know how many were done, so just sort of assumed that it was done out of health reasons or desperation, early in pregnancy. No one I knew had had abortions, no one would have thought of doing so, and that was pretty much where I was.

Then I found out about how many had been done, about the sale of baby parts, and then this late-term infanticide thing showed up.

THOSE got my attention, and I have been paying attention and concerned about it ever since. (About 4 years ago.)

I think those cheers in the New York Assembly got a lot of peoples' attention, too.

jimmyk

As to MM's point earlier, I actually don't think abortion is primarily about the Benjamins (as Ilhan Omar would put it). There is plenty of money from prenatal care, obstetrics, neonatal care, pediatrics, etc. Yes, there may be some vested financial interests in abortion mills, but I think it's unfortunately ideology-driven. Culture of death and selfishness.

Reporters in Hanoi, much like Jorge Ramos, are learning what living under a REAL dictator is like.

I am trying to gin up some sympathy for them, but it's a bit difficult. They will probably lodge a complaint with the White House and try to blame President Trump, who was still in the air when this happened.

It also occurs to me that the Norks know that a good portion of these reporters are about scuttling the talks by creating a controversy, and they are not interested in that.

MissMarple2

jimmyk, ignatz,

I think there is more money involved in this than you guys realize. PP makes a lot of money out of selling fetal tissue for research, umbilical cords for stem cell purposes, and (this is currently rumor but I would not be surprised) organs for transplant purposes.

I would like to point out that although selfishness is a motive, why in the heck isn't there a mechanism to put these late-term babies out for adoption with a fee? Why are they so interested in DEAD babies?

Birth control is readily available. Abortions in the first trimester are easily procured. Why wait until the 7th month (or later) to decide? Why not deliver the child by Caesarean and let it live? There are people all over the country willing to adopt.

Why the killing? Are the democrats moving towards child sacrifice?

Buckeye

Happy Birthday Dave!

Years ago I was sorta the same, MM.

PP trying to destroy Komen opened my eyes too.

All pro-choice people should read pro-life sites, at least sometimes, so they can know what is really going on & what they are supporting. They have no idea.

Restaurants that had health code violations got listed in the local paper...but not abortion clinics.
It was "extremist" groups like Operation Rescue that let the public know what was going on. Dead babies in dumpsters, women dying from botched abortions, unlicensed workers, health code violations in the clinics, plumbing clogged up with dead baby parts,...

Anyway, I don't think most regular "normals" realize the awfulness of that Big business.
