“Pious, just humane, temperate, and sincere;… dignified, and commanding; his example was as edifying to all around him as were the effects of that example lasting… vice shuddered in his presence and virtue always felt his fostering hand. The purity of his private charter gave effulgence to his public virtues… Such was the man for whom our nation morns.” – John Marshall

“To laugh often and much; To win respect of intelligent people and the affection of children. To leave the world a better place. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid. That’s why the Marxist vision of man without God must eventually be seen as an empty and a false faith- the second oldest in the world- first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden with whispered words of temptation: ‘Ye shall be as gods.’ The crisis of the Western world, Whittaker Chambers reminded us, exists to the degree in which it is indifferent to God… This is the real task before us: to reassert our commitment as a nation to a law higher than our own, to renew our spiritual strength. Only by building a wall of such spiritual resolve can we, as a free people, hope to protect our own heritage and make it someday the birthright of all men.” – Ronald Reagan

“The themes of a sound foreign policy should be no mystery, nor the result of endless agonizing reappraisals. They are rooted in our past- in our very beginning as a nation. … To this day, America is still the abiding alternative to tyranny. That is our purpose in the world- nothing more and nothing less. To carry out that purpose, our fundamental aim in foreign policy must be to ensure our own survival and to protect those others who share our values. Under no circumstances should we have any illusions about the intentions of those who are enemies of freedom. Our… adversaries have little regard for human rights because they have little interest in human freedom… [I]f we are to preserve our own freedom- we must understand those who would dominate us and deal with them with determination. We must shoulder our burden with our eyes fixed on the future, but recognizing the realities of today, not counting on mere hope or wishes. We must be willing to carry out our responsibility as the custodian of individual freedom. Then we will achieve our destiny to be as a shining city on a hill for all mankind to see.” – Ronald Reagan

“Porkbusters accurately believe Congress will never get serious about fixing Social Security and Medicare when it’s preoccupied with swimming pools and teapot museums. And until American taxpayers can trust Republicans to correctly handle the ‘small things,’ like Bridges to Nowhere, they will never trust us to handle the ‘big things,’ like Medicare and Social Security. Establishment Republicans can either continue to bash the Porkbusters, or they can find common cause with this movement. Conservative Republicans who cheer Porkbusters aren’t expecting to see grand reform overnight. They would simply be content with Republicans acting like Republicans. That’s advice the GOP would be wise to follow.” – Sen. Tom Coburn

“According to a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) study released this month, the bottom fifth of families with children, whose average income in 2005 was $16,800, enjoyed a larger percentage increase in income from 1991 to 2005 than all other groups except the top fifth… Even more impressive, the CBO found that households in the bottom fifth increased their incomes so much because they worked longer and earned more money in 2005 than in 1991- not because they received higher welfare payments… Low-income families with children increased their work effort, many of them in response to the 1996 welfare reform law that was designed to produce exactly this effect. These families not only increased their earnings but also slashed their dependency on cash welfare. Earnings up, welfare down- that’s the definition of reducing welfare dependency in America.” – Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Ron Haskins

“Those pushing for price controls on gasoline are not likely to go into facts about the consequences of price controls, much less go into the economics that explains why such bad consequences have repeatedly followed price controls… When the conditions that determined the old prices change, the new prices are likely to be very different. That is not rocket science… In the United States, liberals have made it virtually impossible [to increase supply], by banning drilling in all sorts of places and preventing any new refinery from being built anywhere in the country in the last 30 years. Prices are like messengers carrying the news of supply and demand. Like other messengers carrying bad news, they face the danger that some people think the answer is to kill the messenger, rather than taking steps to change the news. The strongest proponents of price controls are the strongest opponents of producing more oil. They say the magic words ‘alternative energy sources’ and we are supposed to swoon- and certainly not ask any rude questions like ‘At what cost?”‘ – Thomas Sowell

“Complexity is the enemy of freedom. Complexity is the friend of criminals who are not technically or legally criminals but who are morally criminals nonetheless… The immigration bill pending before Congress is a perfect example of how complexity is the enemy of freedom, the foe of democracy, the pal of cronies, the friend of power-mongers. The bill, which is one thousand pages of minutia, had not even been read by a single senator when it was introduced. Why, in the name of commonsense, do we need a one thousand page bill to solve the program of securing the borders of our nation? When, ever, has our nation needed a one thousand page bill in Congress? What is the purpose of a gigantic bill that no one will read and few will understand? The purpose is the same as Hillary’s health care schemes: to create so much complexity and confusion that no one can argue against anything except the idea or against the title of a particular bill… The boldness of the latest machinations shows just how far we have fallen. But the response of those yearning to be free and the fright of Congress means America is not dead yet.” – Bruce Walker

“What political conservatives and on-the-ground Republicans must understand at this point is that they are not breaking with the White House on immigration… What conservatives and Republicans must recognize is that the White House has broken with them. What President Bush is doing, and has been doing for some time, is sundering a great political coalition. This is sad, and it holds implications not only for one political party but for the American future. The White House doesn’t need its traditional supporters anymore, because its problems are way beyond being solved by the base. And the people in the administration don’t even much like the base. Desperate straits have left them liberated, and they are acting out their disdain… For almost three years, arguably longer, conservative Bush supporters have felt like sufferers of battered wife syndrome… What… this White House… is missing, is simple wisdom. Just wisdom- a sense that they did not invent history, that this moment is not all there is…” – Peggy Noonan

Government Funded Agency Covers up Multiple Rapes

Arizona

In 1998, a 12-year-old girl in Glendale, Arizona, who was raped by her foster brother, had an abortion at Planned Parenthood and PP never reported the rape to authorities. Finally, when the same girl went to Planned Parenthood six months later for another abortion, PP did notify authorities and the foster brother was arrested and convicted. The girl sued Planned Parenthood for failing to report the rape the first time and a judge ruled that PP was negligent for not initially reporting the rape. Court documents report the girl reached a settlement in the case.

California

In 1999, an 11-year-old girl in California went to Planned Parenthood of the Golden Gate. She told Planned Parenthood that she had been raped, but asked PP not to tell anyone, including her parents. Of course, the law is clear; regardless of the girl’s desires, when an 11-year-old is raped, there are mandatory reporting requirements. In December 2005 Planned Parenthood of the Golden Gate featured a letter from the girl on its website. The girl wrote in praise of Planned Parenthood for helping her keep her rape secret. After American Life League exposed this letter and publicly denounced Planned Parenthood’s inaction the letter was immediately taken down. (However, the letter can still be found on the internet archive.)

Ohio

In November 2004 a 16-year-old-girl was brought to a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Cincinnati and forced to have an abortion by her father. The girl says she told the Planned Parenthood employee that her father was forcing her to have sex. Planned Parenthood did not report the abuse and the father continued to rape the girl for another year and a half. On May 9, 2007 the girl filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio for refusing to report the rape. The same Planned Parenthood affiliate is also being sued for not reporting the rape of a 14-year-old girl by her soccer coach.

Connecticut

A 22-year-old man was arrested this month in New London, Connecticut for raping a 14-year-old girl and getting her pregnant three times in six months. Newspaper reports say it was the girl’s mother that alerted authorities, not the abortion facility. Although newspaper accounts do not identify the abortion facility involved, Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics in Denton, Texas said that he has a copy of the police reports and it was a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Norwich, Connecticut.
