Sporting her new haircut, her new nose, and plump lips, Sarah Palin has assumed the role of the News Anchor. She appeared in front of an American Flag in an “On Point” interview of the GOP candidates for President.  Perhaps because she couldn’t answer questions while she was hired to be a commentator,  she has assumed the role of asking the questions.  That way all the questions can be pre-determined.  Obviously a script can be prepared in advance.  The amusing thing is that the only thing about Sarah Palin that seemed to be attractive to people was her appearance.  Now that she has destroyed that with plastic surgery, she is a brainless, unattractive, person reading a script.

In a single day she interviewed the Donald, Ted Cruz, and Jeb Bush.  It is worthy of note that not a single question or comment of Palin during the interview was spontaneous.  She never asked a question inspired by something one of the people interviewed said.  Here are the interviews:

The Donald- 1,463,791 views:

Focus of interview: How Great Trump is

Ted Cruz- 22,283 views:

Focus of interview: Religious Freedom, De-funding Planned Parenthood, an “ongoing nationwide criminal enterprise,”  “We are not going to fund the abortions.”

Jeb Bush– 8992 views:

Focus of interview: The need to help special needs children,

The focus of the entire interview with Cruz was the anti-choice position promoted by Palin.  The focus of the interview with Bush was the importance of caring for special needs children, like Trig.

I’m calling “bull-shit.”

The Donald is “very pro-choice”.  He said “I am very pro-choice in every respect“.  He was specifically asked about late term, partial birth abortions in another interview.

 

For Sarah to “interview” Trump, Cruz, and Bush in the same day, and not discuss Trump’s “pro-choice” views, is a total cover-up.  It is a dishonest portrayal of the GOP front runner to pretend that he holds views that are so opposite to his running mates on abortion.  The only issue that Sarah has remained consistent on is her anti-abortion stance, which she has promoted since she ran for mayor.  Trump, the only candidate that has indicated he’d find a place in his cabinet for Palin, is the pro-choice candidate.  It appears that Sarah is more interested in self-promotion than her anti-abortion stance.

The Senate failed to get enough votes to de-fund Planned Parenthood on Monday.

The real question is why, with many other important issues to deal with, is Congress focusing once again on abortion?  Roe vs. Wade was decided 40 years ago, and we are still wasting time talking about an issue that is the law.

After the Hyde Amendment was passed in 1976, 39 years ago, federal funds can not be used to fund abortion.  It seems to me that the issue is an emotional one, raised by Republicans more worried about re-election than protecting life.  The same Congressmen and women who repeatedly raise abortion as an issue ignore the needs of the living.  Under any definition of “life”, the unborn is “alive” no more than 9 months.  Once a baby is born, for the next 70-90 years it has “life”, but that seems unworthy of protection.  The funny thing is that as more people are born who need the government’s help, and as the Democrats try harder to help them, theGOP generates more and more people who willl vote against them.

  1.  In 2013, 14.3 percent of households in America  (17.5 million households, approximately one in seven), were “food insecure”.  That means that over 17 million people in the United States were hungry.
  2. In 2013, there were 45.3 million people in America living in poverty.
  3. Racism in America seems to grown by the day, without any hope of resolution.  We continue to treat the symptoms, but not the underlying problem.
  4. Crisis in the Middle East seems to be escalating, instead of subsiding.
  5. The United States is no longer the world’s largest economy.
  6. The national debt is already unsustainable.
  7. The United States is ranked among other countries:
    1. 14th in education
    2. 2nd in ignorance about social statistics, such as teen pregnancy, unemployment rates, and voting patterns.
    3. 33rd in internet download speed
    4. 24th in literacy
    5. 17th in educational performance
    6. 11th in fourth grade math performance
    7. 6th in fourth grade reading
    8. 16th as the most desirable country in which to be born
    9. 12th in age of first sex education
    10. 3rd in human development
    11. 8th in scientific researchers
    12. 10th in bullied teenage females
    13. 23rd in  PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment)
    14. 7th in knowing how to avoid pregnancy
    15. 54th in education expenditures
    16. 72nd in girls going to grade school
    17. 85th in boys going to grade school
    18. 9th in home internet access
    19. 15th in tertiary (college and university) graduation rates
    20. 12th in college faculty to student ratio
    21. 8th in expenditure on education
    22. 4th in money spent per student on secondary education
    23. 6th in adults aged 20-24 enrolled in college
    24. 26th in employment growth for women
    25. 26th in employment growth
    26. 95th in private high school students
    27. 17th in medical graduates
    28. 1st in female science students
    29. 1st in foreign students attending college and universities
    30. 10th in teachers’ salaries
    31. 33rd in acceptance of the theory of evolution
    32. 134th in government commitment to education
    33. 15th in literacy
    34. 14th in college graduation

With these indicators of a country in decline, why are we spending so much energy and time on a 40-year-old issue?

Here are the facts about Planned Parenthood:

  1.  In 2014 Planned Parenthood received state and federal government funds of $528.4 million dollars.
  2. Non-government sources of funding in 2014 accounted for #305.3 Million dollars.
  3. Only 3% of all services  provided by Planned Parenthood are abortions. Federal funds are NOT used for abortions.

Even with Planned Parenthood providing abortion services, the rate of abortions performed in America has declined dramatically since 2010.  Today there are 12% fewer abortions performed in America than in 2010.  The decline has occurred in red and blue states.  That is to say, that the unavailability of abortions in states is not the reason the rates have declined.    Planned Parenthood reports that since 2009 there has been a 91% increase in the use of IUDs and contraceptive implants.  Thus the threat of de-funding Planned Parenthood was not an effort to reduce number of abortions in America.  It was an effort by politicians to appeal to voters ignorant of the facts.  Instead of devoting time to the decline in America, our political leaders were focused on the decline in the support of their constituents. If we are to stop the rapid decline of our country, we must stop focusing on issues that are certain to have no impact, and start focusing on the multitude of areas where we can make a meaningful difference.

palin mad

 

Congress is scheduled to consider whether to defund Planned Parenthood this week.  The push to destroy any provider of abortion services isn’t new.  Right to life groups have been fighting to limit women’s reproductive freedom since before Roe vs. Wade, decided over 40 years ago.  Three Percent of the services provided by Planned Parenthood are abortions.  But you probably knew that.  That 3% translated into 327,000 in  a one year period.  That probably seems like a lot of abortions.  However the reason it was responsible for providing so many abortion services is the fact that Planned Parenthood is responsible for providing so many OTHER medical services to women.  In 2013-2014 Planned Parenthood provided:

378,692 pap screenings for cervical cancer

487,029 breast exams, and detected 87,988 cases of breast cancer

3,577,348 patients were provided with birth control services (meaning that over 3 million women didn’t need an abortion)

704,079 HIV/AIDS tests were provided

3,727,359 tests were performed to detect sexually transmitted infections, and 169,008 patients were diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease

32,334 colonoscopies were performed

4166 vasectomies were performed ( again preventing countless abortions)

So what would it mean if Congress “defunded” Planned Parenthood?  Would that mean that abortion services would no longer be offered?  The answer is a resounding NO!!!!

Planned Parenthood’s net revenue for fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013 was 1.21 Billion dollars.  Forty-five percent of that, $540.6 million dollars, was provided by the federal government.   Thus if Planned Parenthood were to be defunded by Congress 45% of its funding would be eliminated.  So, what would happen to the services provided by Planned Parenthood if their federal funding were to go away?

The fact is that it would be the decision of Planned Parenthood which services to cut.  It seems likely that Planned Parenthood would ensure that if certain services they provide,are not otherwise available through government funded medical care, Planned Parenthood would ensure that those services would be the last to be eliminated.

What seems to have been ignored in the rush to express outrage about abortions performed with money provided by Planned Parenthood, is that pursuant to the Hyde Amendment, no federal dollars can be used to fund abortions.   Thus if defunding occurred, it seems likely that Planned Parenthood would discontinue services that would be available to most women through another means.

So why would Sarah Palin work so hard to promote defunding of Planned Parenthood.  The answer is REVENGE!  It was during the 2008 campaign that Planned Parenthood received donations in the amount of $760,000. 00.   People were so outraged at Palin’s anti-choice positions that she inspired unprecedented donations in a very short period of time for the very organization to which she objected.

Now, inspite of the cost to the American tax payers, Sarah Palin is so consumed with rage and a need for revenge that she is willing to sit back and watch as women die.  How many cases of breast cancer and cervical cancer would go undetected if Planned Parenthood were unavialable to women?  When dollars and cents are involved the question is not whether to protect human life. but which life to protect.  People like Sarah Palin would trade the life of an adult woman for that of a 3 week old fetus.  Sarah has a history of allowing hundreds of elderly people to die due to lack of the most basic needs.

It is sickening to me that Sarah, and people like her, pretend to be so concerned with protecting the unborn, but remain callous and uncaring about those who are alive.

Is there anyone left who still thinks that a Facebook post on Sarah Palin’s Facebook page is actually written by Sarah?  For a long time we knew that Palin had employed Rebecca Monsour to write for her.

rebecca-mansour

rebecca mansour and friend

But over the past 7 years, nothing has come close to the esoteric post regarding Alexis de Tocqueville.  To pretend that Sarah Palin has ever heard of Alexis de Tocqueville is a joke!  If she had never heard of Paul Revere she surely doesn’t know who Alexis de Tocqueville was.  To suggest that she remembered his birthday this past week, when she forgot Todd and Trig’s birthdays, is insulting.  It is almost as believable as the notion that building dikes would contain the Gulf Oil spill.

The post on Tocqueville included words like insightful, prophetic, diminishing, capacity, prescient, strive, and tyranny.  The post mentions Tocqueville’s book “Democracy in America” suggesting that Palin has read that book.  A woman who can’t remember after 7 years what newspapers she reads has surely never read a book written two centuries ago written by a Frenchman.

Contrast that post to the one immediately preceding it.   In that one Palin used the word “wussified”.  She proclaims the virtue of the Donald, by explaining that he has the “guts to say it like it is.”  This is the Donald having the guts to say it like it is.

“Wussified” and “Guts” seems to be much more the type of language we have come to expect from that walking thesaurus, Sarah Palin.

If Sarah was a scholar of Tocqueville she would know that he said:

Those that despise people will never get the best out of others and themselves.

Sarah Palin has despised so many people, for so long, that the “best” is history.

For the last week we have read post after post from SarahPalin’s facebook     page  railing against Planned Parenthood.  Congress is contemplating voting to defund Planned Parenthood.  While nobody could predict what Congress will do one thing is very clear.  Donald Trump, the person Palin describes as a “hero”  is Pro-choice.
