Best from Twitchy:
- Charles Cooke, you magnificent bastard.
- This may be the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
- That should make Captain Rage even more ragey.
- “F’n m’fer, gay slur, minority race slur, fn, gay slur, fn mfer.” Eloquent.
- I really like the part where Charles tells him: “Watch spelling here. It’s always embarrassing to make basic errors when you’re calling someone ‘intellectually deficient’.”
- I love being called ‘stuped.’
The Wire (formerly The Atlantic Wire) is billed as “a socially powered news source” whose motto is “What Matters Now.” IOW, it is not a satire site and the screenshot below is not a photoshop. I checked The Wire myself. Twelve hours after the flesh-eating bacteria story was uploaded, the Obama photo was still illustrating it.
I’m really curious what motivated this choice. Somebody get his health insurance cancelled maybe?
July 27, 2014: The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in Atlanta upheld a Florida law forbidding health professionals from asking patients questions about firearms that are not directly relevant to medical care or safety. The judgment says, “We find that the Act is a valid regulation of professional conduct that has only incidental effect on physicians’ speech.”
The Florida law was passed following a series of complaints from patients that medical personnel were asking unwelcome questions on firearms ownership during interviews.
- In one case, a health care provider falsely told a patient that disclosing firearm ownership was a Medicaid requirement.
- In another, a mother was separated from her children while medical staff asked the children whether the mother owned firearms.
Just four days after Governor Scott signed the 2011 Firearm Owners’ Privacy Act into law, a group of physicians filed suit, arguing it violated their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights. Gun rights advocates say this week’s federal court ruling this week confirms the correctness of the intent of the legislation – i.e., to protect the privacy of firearms owners and to stop the political interrogation of gun owners and the children of gun owners when they seek medical care.

“Hamas is not seeking coexistence and compromise. Hamas is seeking conquest.”
His clinic is closed for good.
Speaking of racism and wars on women … I was struck watching this video by how many of the patients are black while the abortionist running this horror house is white.
Leaked Records Expose Abortion Abuses at Kansas City Abortion Clinic
In 2012, Operation Rescue filed a complaint with the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts that included evidence of many violations of health, safety and patient confidentiality laws.
Operation Rescue was informed just last week in a letter from the Board of Healing Arts that the two-year-old case against Aid For Women’s only abortionist, Ronald Yeomans, was still ongoing.
“We are aware that Yeomans was feeling the heat from the Board on some very serious allegations, including failure to report suspected incidents of abuse,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “While Board investigations are confidential, the case was at a point in time when we would expect that Yeomans was having his legal options limited. There is no doubt that in addition to the faithful presence of local pro-life activists outside that facility, our case contributed to his decision to retire and shut down his seedy abortion operation, although I doubt that he would ever admit it.”
Israeli soldiers prepare for battle
July 22, 2014: These Israeli soldiers are about to enter Gaza and risk their lives for the Jewish homeland. They prepare for battle through songs of faith in G-d. This is what they are singing: “The whole world is a narrow bridge and you must not be afraid. Serve G-d with joy and come before Him with song. We have no one to rely upon except our Father in heaven.”
