Just when you think you have seen* it all when it comes to corruption, Planned Parenthood, the Obama administration & the incestuous relationship between them & other Democratic & pro-abortion groups, this comes along. Cecile Richards is bragging about how she worked with the Obama administration to insure their idea of women's health care, read abortion, was enshrined in ObamaCare.
Richards quoted in in a new interview
with National Journal
as saying "I’ve been working with this administration for the last three years on getting women better health care access in a whole host of ways.… [The Affordable Care Act] is the single most important opportunity to expand women’s health care access in this country that we will ever see
." She goes on to talk about how, based on what happenned in Massachusetts after Romney's version of health care reform that is very similar to ObamaCare# passed, there was a huge influx that portends the influx the expect under ObamaCare.
But this is only a small part of the payback to Planned Parenthood for their support of Obama. As I pointed out
the other day, despite evidence that includes federal audits of family planning programs from 1995 to 2009 that have
identified a total of nearly $88 million in overbilling & maybe up to $99 million or more, the DOJ is not going after Planned Parenthood for medicaid fraud. Meanwhile, the FBI has arrested 35 people in New Jersey & New York
as a part of an alleged scheme obtained hundreds of millions of dollars worth of prescription
drugs from low-income & other Medicaid recipients resell them. This is part of an an ongoing effort to crack down on fraud within government health-care programs. While the arrests are good news, why aren't they going after Planned Parenthood as well? I can come up with only 1 answer, the corrupt relationship between Planned Parenthood & the Obama administration.
Richards, who is the daughter of the late Anne Richards, former Democratic governor, recently Richards invited Democratic activists to a training seminar put on by Planned Parenthood & the liberal group Democracy for America. “This is how we push back against anti-women's health politicians and their deep-pocketed cronies
.” Deep-pocketed???????????? She should talk. Look at how well the PP execs on the national as well as affiliate level get paid. Cecile Richards makes over $383,000. The top execs as a whole make over $2.09 million. As I pointed out
a while ago the "average pay of a PP affiliate CEO is $158,275. That puts them in the top 6%
of household incomes. Jill June who heads up Planned Parenthood of the Heartland
got $265,389 for the 2011 fiscal year. She is one of 30 top Planned Parenthood
employees who makes over $200,000 (top 2.67%) & 1 of 18 who makes over
$250,000 (top 1.5%)."
For the reporting year Planned Parenthood made $197.9 million in profits (revenue over expenses as it is stated on Form 990
). Sounds like Planned Parenthood is the one with the deep-pocketed cronies to me.
Richards is smart enough to realize that even as blatently partisan as Planned Parenthood is, because of its 501(c)3 tax exempt status, they have to give some appearance of non-partisanship. This is in part because some people are starting to point out how partisan Planned Parenthood really is
. & when the New York Times
brings it up, it must be getting pretty obvious. So she points out a few Republicans who support them. So why is she only working with Democratic groups if there are so many pro-abortion Republicans as she claims? Surely that have some groups promoting abortion rights as well? Yet everything she is doing is with Democrats. Smoke & mirrors once again.
More smoke & mirrors was provided in how the National Journal
asked her about Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who was mentioned in the Times
piece. What is failed to be mentioned in the question is why Collins was mentioned. Because Planned Parenthood turned against her in 2008 for voting for Judge Alito. Richards says that they haven't cut ties & will continue to work with her. Yet Collins said something totally different in the Times
story. “Why should I try to make their case in the Republican caucus? I can’t answer my colleagues when they say to me that Planned Parenthood is just a political party, because it is true
.” A political party? So much for non-partisanship. The Times
piece also points out that "in this election cycle, the group’s political arm (while proudly claiming to be nonpartisan) has not endorsed or directly given money to a single Republican
What affiliations do you have including church groups?
How long have you known your wife?
What belief system makes you believe in your cause?
What is your goal in protesting?
Do you know why people would make complaints against you?
Are there friends of yours or people you’re connected with that you could confidentially tell us are aggressive or abrasive? “Don’t be afraid to tell us.”
Are you involved in activism in Austin, since we noticed some entries on abortionwiki?
They were REALLY interested in the connection to Jill Stanek – details of internship, New Zealand speaking tour visit, did you get your activist and pro-life ideas from her? Did she train or teach you? Did you meet Jill before or after you became involved in the movement? Was it Jill who “fired you up” to become so active in the movement?
They were overly nice saying he wasn’t in trouble and feel free to tell us anything. Encouraged him to keep going back out there, that they represent both sides. ++they are protecting his freedom of speech++ is what they kept saying.
They said their task force that deals with these abortion cases also handles Hate Crimes and White Supremacy. Odd grouping with pro-lifers.
They knew he was an immigrant. They said a felony on his record could/would get him deported. “You wouldn’t want to be apart from your wife and newborn.”
Meanwhile, evidence is mounting that the Obama administration is going beyond the merely labeling of Pro-lifers as terrorists
& investigating them. Jill Stanek reports
that her son-in-law, Andy Moore, was visited by 2 FBI agents on 13 July. Here are the questions asked:
Did you notice how many of those questions are related to what the Homeland Security report defined as potential deomestic terrorist threats & groups?
Additionally, Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue
, told LifesiteNews
.com that a source has given him reason to believe the Obama administration is engaging in surveillance of pro-life leaders & organizations. “It would not be a stretch to believe that every single pro-life leader has his unique ID code for their cell phone tapped into a government computer, and they know where we are and who we’re talking to at every moment
Before I go on, I have to say that not all the FBI agents are like this. But the questions these ones were told to ask are clearly out of that Homeland Security document
. That document is clearly the playbook they are being told to follow.
It is clear that the Obama administration is doing all it can to pay back Planned Parenthood & the abortion industry for their support. The timing of this before the election is no coincidence either. It is pure Mafia style strong-arm tactics. They are trying to silence those who are speaking out against Planned Parenthood.
So lets take a look at what we have. The Mafia bought politicians & judges through bribes & donations. Planned Parenthood buys Democratic politicians like Sibelius & Obama through donations & campaigning for them. The Mafia got kickbacks to their "legal" businesses as a result of their ownership of poiliticians. Planned Parenthood is getting huge kickbacks through grants (see footnote below) as well as ObamCare. The Mafia used threats & fear to get people to cooperate. Planned Parenthood has the (mis)use of FBI agents to make those threats under the guise of an investigation. Remember what Andy Moore was told? As an immigrant he was reminded that "a felony on his record could/would get him deported. “You wouldn’t want to be apart from your wife and newborn."
I suspect their is also more than a little revenge is what is going on withion how the Obama administration is targetting Pro-lifers. Look at all the success of uncovering the truth of Planned Parenthood when it comes to medicaid fraud, covering up rape, incest & white slavery, & other dirty secrets they have tried to hide, by Pro-lifers. Bringing these things to light has resulted in criminal investigations, the loss of tax monies & even resulted in some local Planned Parenthood clinics to close. I feel safe in saying that as a result, the Obama administration is gladly helping Planned Parenthood to get revenge on its enemies. Another thing the Mafia is known for.
As someone of Italiano heritage, I don't make these claims lightly, or with the aim of downplaying the evil that the Mafia did, & is still doing. I am sharing this to help bring to light the truth about Planned Parenthood & the Obama administration. Please pray that more & more people's eyes will be open to the truth. Not only to shut down Planned Parenthood or defeat Obama, but so that an end to the evil of abortion in the USA will soon be a reality. Pray also for the conversion of all those connected with Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry & the Obama administration as well. Pray for the success of Abby Johnson’s new ministry And Then There Were None
. It is a nonprofit organization that ministers specifically to abortion clinic workers. The purpose of the organization is to assist former abortion clinic workers as they transition out of the abortion industry & into a new line of work. (PS: Congratulations to Abby & her husband Doug on the recent birth
of their son Alex.)
* I refer to my post yesterday
when I commented on how commented on the corrupt bargain between Obama, his administration & Planned Parenthood. & while I just pointed it out in passing, I also showed how intertwined the Obama adminstration, the Democratic party & Planned Parenthood are with other groups that support their demonic "culture of death" agenda.
Well, today I can add more to that as well
. In 2010 Richards was named a trustee to the Ford Foundation. This should come to no surprize to anyone who knows how pro-abortion they are. Last year they gave $300,000 to the pro-abortion group Catholics for Choice
. & after Richards came on board, contributions to Planned Parenthood from the Foundation more than doubled
in a single year. The latest news is that former Planned Parenthood national media director & spokeswoman Diane Quest has been named
senior account director at Camino Public Relations
. They are also the public relations firm for other groups with strong advocacy for abortion including the Ford Foundation & a group I mentioned yesterday, the SEIU. Incestuous, corrput, these words seem almost too mild to describe what is going on.
# Romney has vowed
to be a Pro-life president & to promote the Pro-life agenda. That includes who he appoints to judges & his administration, as well as supporting the overturn of ObamaCare. As for Massachusetts law
, part of the problem was that court rulings in Massachusetts require state-subsidized health plans to offer
abortion services, rulings that go way back & left no choice. I am also aware that in the past he has taken pro-abortion stands. At this point, I have to give him the benefit of the doubt. Too many former abortion supporters becoming Pro-life requires me to do so. But we have to take the rsponsibility to keep the heat on Romney, now & if he wins in November, after the election, to ensure that he follows through.
