ACLU calls abortion “health care” and slams the 20-week abortion ban passed in Congress
The American Civil Liberties Union issued a press release today condemning the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a measure that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks. The press release also stated that the White House has threatened to veto the bill if it passes in the U.S. Senate.
Laura W.

If you’re a radical left-wing ideologue seeking to “fundamentally transform” the country into something that more resembles the former Soviet Union than the republic founded by Washington, Jefferson, et. al., this cannot be good news.
Bill Ayers, the unrepentant domestic terrorist in whose house Barack Obama began his political career, now says that Obama should be tried for war crimes, according to an interview he did with Real Clear Politics.

And al-Nusra, one of the most effective homegrown fighting forces in Syria, a force who really is in control of the rebel opposition show with as many as 10,000 highly trained fighters on the ground, now has Obama siding with, funding, and helping to arm them…NO matter that they’re a known al-Qaeda operative group.
Sarah Palin spoke Saturday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s 2013 Road to Majority Conference, blasting Obama voters, the NSA, and Washington culture in general.
“It seems so Orwellian around here,” she said. “Before 1984, terms like ‘leading from behind’ meant following. The other day the White House testified before Congress, bragging that they used the ‘least untruthful statement.’ Where I come from that’s called a lie.”
On Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi falsely characterized a bill that would prohibit abortions during the final four months and could not tell the difference between what abortionist Kermit Gosnell did to babies born alive and abortions that take place moments before the baby is born.
“As a practicing and respectful Catholic, this is sacred ground to me when we talk about this,” she said. “I don’t think it should have anything to do with politics.”

And so yesterday it was announced that CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell (a 33-year CIA veteran), will be resigning effective August 9th. Citing that he wanted to spend more time with his family, Morell used this standard excuse favored by all in the hot seat, and that just won’t fly anymore.
According to Drudge editor and Washington Times columnist Joseph Curl, the IRS scandal is far from over. He says some of his top Hill sources told him that low-level agency workers aren’t happy about being blamed for misconduct and are about to “return fire” at higher-ups in Washington DC.
