Pelosi: Late-Term Abortions
´Sacred Ground´

Weekly Standard, by John McCormack

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/13/2013 1:42:12 PM

At a Thursday press conference, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi condemned a bill that would prohibit abortions during the final four months of pregnancy with exceptions for when the life or physical health of the mother was at stake. Asked what the moral difference is between what Dr. Kermit Gosnell did to babies born alive and aborting those same infants moments before birth, Pelosi refused to answer. "As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this," Pelosi said. "This shouldn´t have anything to do with politics."

She should be publicly excommunicated and damned to perdition for her stance, but since they still have allowed her to receive communion all these years, it´s unlikely to happen.

Pelosi worships at the altar of Satan.
Time for Pope Francis to walk the walk, and excommunicate Catholics in Public office that support abortion.
There is a disconnect between Pelosi and her ilk who brag about being Catholic, and those who are gainst abortion and are Catholic. I don´t think I can even identify with being a Catholic in 2013. I will not be part of a church that preaches one thing, but keeps silent as babies are killed and does nothing to punish those who break church law.

The Catholic Church has been far from silent on abortion. In my diocese the diocesan paper has been doing investigative journalism on an abortion clinic and the state inspectors.

As for excommunication- Pelosi, Sebelius and others of their ilk would already be made to feel unwelcome in a great many Catholic Churches across America. All that making it official would do is cause the mainstream media to have a field day about intolerance and their imagined war against women.

´´As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this,´´ Pelosi said. ´´This shouldn´t have anything to do with politics.´´

The thought process (or lack thereof) behind those two statements leave me absolutely speechless.

Respectful? Sacred? Nothing to do with politics?

Pelosi is the poster child for all those who claim to be followers of the tenets of Christianity, yet twist and distort the Law to suit their own personal version of what it "should" be. There will be a reckoning day for Ms. Pelosi and all the others who have easily fallen for the tricks of the Father of Lies. "In which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience. Ephesians 2:2

When oh when will the RC church get rid of this "practicing and respectful Catholic"? She is a scandal to the faith. She divids the faithful. She is a liar. She loves aborting children. She slaps the face of God. Sticks her tongue out at Jesus. Oh.Well.

Uh... not that as usual she did not answer the question asked of her.

Hate to say it...but for myself..a REAl practicing and respectful Catholic..I believe she is incorrect.

Her idea of "sacred ground" is to kill and mulch unborn babies.

Sounds more like quicksand to me.

Wonder if when this old hag is on her deathbed, she will try to make a bargain with the Pope to see if he will grease the wheels for her to try to get into heaven?

Got a feeling, she will beg like dead Kennedy did to try to fool God about her support for killing the least among us.

According to her religion this one here is off to hell anyway.
...let her blather.....
but know that abortions since 1973 among the African-American poulation far exceed in 40 yrs the entire count of those poor souls captured by their own and sold to the traders on the Middle Passge in 250 yrs of slave trading.
She should be excommunicated, (along with Biden)...and jailed for her crimes.

Nothing to do with politics? Really?

Then why do you use it in your campaign each time if it has nothing to do with politics?

And considering California will still have legal abortions even if Roe is overturned and the decision is returned to the states.

Why do you, and other Democrats in California then worry use abortion in your campaigns?

Because you´re really trying to divide Republicans. Some of whom won´t vote for someone if they are for abortion, that´s why.

Has she been excommunicated yet? If the Church wants to be taken seriously, she must herself be faithful.

Nope. She belongs to the church of Moloch, you know that one, whose image was a beast with outstretched arms, bearing a pot of burning coals into which the suppliants would hurl unwanted infants?

The Part Time President’s Part Time Jobs
Townhall, by John Ransom    Original Article

“Hooray, hooray”! they said in print. 192,000 jobs were created last month according to the Department of Labor’s somewhat flawed mathematics that the media is eager to ignore. Because hidden inside that job gain is another disheartening sign for the workforce: the number of workers who could only find part-time jobs rose by 225,000. Leading the field in job creation, not surprisingly, was education and health services with 34,000 jobs—thank you Obamacare-- the retail trade with about 22,000 jobs—thank you Obamacare-- and temporary workers with 28,500 jobs —thank you Obamacare. So the good news is that if you’re independently wealthy

Reid Chief of Staff Was a Comcast VP

Democratic members of Congress and the Obama administration have extensive ties to Comcast and Time-Warner, the two cable giants currently awaiting approval from the Federal Communications Commission on a $45 billion merger. One that has gone mostly overlooked: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D., Nev.) chief of staff, David Krone, is Comcast’s former senior vice president for corporate affairs. Krone moved from Comcast to Reid’s office in 2011 under ethically questionable circumstances, TalkingPointsMemo reported at the time: Majority Leader Harry Reid’s chief of staff, David Krone, left a highly lucrative gig at Comcast before working for the Senator.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

The increasingly open “civil war” now raging between a Republican establishment that favors big government and members of the Tea Party is a necessary evil that will eventually force the GOP back to its limited government principles, conservative leaders say. “This is part of a literally 102-year-old civil war that’s been going on in the Republican Party since 1912, when Teddy Roosevelt leaves the Republican Party, splits the party, starts the Bull Moose Party, which leads directly to Woodrow Wilson’s election with less than 42 percent of the vote,” Conservative HQ chairman Richard Viguerie told CNSNews.com.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it
