Carly Fiorina Condemns Hillary Clinton’s Support Of Planned Parenthood Butchery While Hillary Talks Beauty Routines

Filed under: General — Dana @ 8:35 am



[guest post by Dana]

In spite of the two crushing Planned Parenthood chop shop videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, Hillary Clinton refuses to condemn the organization and instead, continues to approve of their exposed depravity as she welcomes their sizable contributions to her campaign. So, exactly what has Hillary been talking about on the campaign trail? Her challenging beauty routine.

Meanwhile, Carly Fiorina has also been on the campaign trail, but instead of discussing beauty routines, she blew up Hillary’s extreme positions on abortion and lack of support and advocacy for both women and unborn women in distress:

“Let’s also talk about Hillary Clinton’s position,” she continued. “Let’s talk about what ‘extreme’ is. It’s not a life until it leaves the hospital. That’s Hillary Clinton’s position. It’s Hillary Clinton’s position that a 13-year-old girl needs her mother’s permission to go to a tanning salon or get a tattoo, but not to get an abortion. It’s Hillary Clinton’s position that women should not be permitted to see an ultrasound before an abortion and yet people trying to harvest body parts can use ultrasound to make sure that those body parts are preserved so they can be sold. That, Jake, is extreme.”

Tapper again asked his question about exceptions for rape and incest — but he wasn’t dealing with Todd Akin here.

“I would really be delighted if for once, the media would ask Hillary Clinton about the extremism of her position,” Fiorina scolded. “It’s not a life until it leaves the hospital.”

She added: “My position has been very clear and consistent ever since I ran for the Senate in 2010. Anyone can look it up. Yes, I support exceptions. But the majority of the American people now believe that abortion for any reason at all to be paid for by tax-payers after 5 months is an abomination. And this videotape — whether you’re a pro-choice woman or a pro-life woman — this videotape is depraved.”

  1. Fiorina is sharp and articulate in the video, and in spite of Tapper’s efforts, refuses to be distracted. I’ll say it again, I really hope she has the numbers to make it to the debates. I think she would be terrific.

  2. I agree with you, Dana. Lots of folks don’t like CF, because they haven’t learned anything about her the Clerisy hasn’t told them.

    Notice that when people get the opportunity to hear her, they like her.

    She fights, like Glenn Reynolds says.

    Should she be President? I’m not sure. But I would like to see her as VP, and I *know* that she will drag the other candidates, kicking and screaming, into presenting their positions clearly.

    Win-win.

  3. If Hillary! as a beauty routine it’s an epic FAIL!

  5. And, she’s got a big ass.

    VP.

    Do you think there is a fear among the male GOP candidates to use the videos and Hillary’s support of the organization against her in the campaign? I haven’t seen any male candidates tie Clinton and PP together in their condemnations, which makes me wonder if the fear of being accused “sexist” is making them more than willing to let the only woman in the GOP field take the lead? If so, how interesting: because any accusation of sexism would appear to confirm that Hillary is running on gender identity in spite of accusing Republicans of playing the gender card, and it would also reflect a level of gender politics being played on the right as well.

  7. Please watch the entire video. It’s not long, but Fiorina is so well poised and unmovable, it’s really something. I wish that other GOP candidates who tend to lose their composure would take note. Also, given Tapper’s wife was a regional field manager for Planned Parenthood for a number of years, he’s clearly got a dog in this fight, yet she remains undeterred.

    Dana (86e864)

  8. accusing Republicans of playing the gender card, and it would also reflect a level of gender politics being played on the right as well.

    I saw it as tokenism in the last election. Most strikingly with the young, black, lady Mormon from Utah, and the breadbags galoshes lady from Hooterville. Now these ladies may be just fine and dandy to pass laws affecting my life, liberty and property but darn if I saw much proof of that. Just estrogen and melanin content.

  9. FINALLY.

    America has some of the most extreme, anti-life abortion laws in the world. For all that liberals wail about how we aren’t like Europe, you can’t get an abortion for any reason or no reason whatsoever in the second trimester there. Our abortion laws reflect the will of about 20% of Americans, and the rest of us are appalled.

    This is low-hanging fruit for everyone to the right of Cecile Richards. Good for Carly for hammering away at this.

  10. I don’t understand Carly Fiorina’s low polling numbers either. She expresses her positions with conviction, she’s obviously willing to fight, and she won’t sit still and allow herself to be bullied around. Most importantly, she engages political opponents and media antagonists without exposing herself to opportunistic criticism or coming off as shrill or overly aggressive.

    There’s a lot to like about Carly Fiorina.

  11. she could be a vp but she doesn’t really help in any particular state

    What are you doing now, channeling happyfeet?! Mia Love and Joni Ernst have more experience and qualifications than most freshman representatives or senators. Love was a city councillor and mayor; Ernst was a county auditor, a state senator, and is a Lt Col in the National Guard. Both also held real jobs before entering politics. Compare them to, say, Chuck Schumer, just for an example; went straight from college to the state assembly, then to Congress, and then to the Senate, without spending a minute earning a living or doing anything outside politics.

  15. I don’t understand Carly Fiorina’s low polling numbers either.

    It’s very easy to explain. How many here currently support her for president? We all like her, and want to see her in the debates, but if we were asked whom we support for president how many of us would choose her? Very few, is my bet. We might change our minds by the time primary day rolls around in our state, but right now we’re generally supporting someone else. So why should we expect anyone else to be different?

    Milhouse (a04cc3)

  16. When you need Lena Dunham to defend you…

    Dana (86e864)

  17. The double-standard is always a dead giveaway: It’s oh so telling that the dashcam video released which recorded the arrest of Sandra Bland (who was later found dead in her cell) was automatically believed accurate and condemned by Democrats – including Hillary Clinton (and Sanders and O’Malley)- yet the Planned Parenthood videos were automatically assumed to be edited and therefore, not accurate and not condemned.

    (A/o today, officials confirm the Bland arrest video was unedited)

    Dana (86e864)

  18. I’ve been looking and I can’t find any reference or identification of any “real jobs” ever held by Mia Love or Joni Ernst anywhere. In every position I can find their check was issued by some level of government and signed by some bureaucrat. Basically they’ve both been supported by government checks since college which to me makes them no better than welfare queens. Would you please point out these “real jobs” these two leaches have held?

    Hoagie (f4eb27)

  19. P.S.to #17: This in spite of The Center for Medical providing full-length unedited videos from the get-go.

    Dana (86e864)

  20. #19, Dana, what possible relevance could that have to protecting sacred cows? Destruction of the family and unfettered abortion are progressive imperatives that are just to central to collectivist dogma to be questioned. They have their narrative and they’re stickin’ to it – no matter how many cannons of humanity are given short shrift. The ends always justify the means.

  21. I’ve been looking and I can’t find any reference or identification of any “real jobs” ever held by Mia Love or Joni Ernst anywhere.

    Where did you look? Up your rear end? If you’d done even so little as glancing at Wikipedia you’d have found that “After college, [Love] worked at Sento Corporation and the Ecopass Corporation. She was also a flight attendant with Continental Airlines.”

    As for Ernst, first of all, how dare you claim that someone with over 20 years of military service, including combat service, is a “leach”? It’s a public sector job, yes, but it’s certainly a real job. Second, how could you have lived through the 2014 campaign without hearing all about her castrating hogs? That’s not a real job?! Third, if that’s not enough for you, about three minutes of googling found me this, which lists at least four real jobs, not counting her work on the farm or the construction jobs she worked while in college.

    Milhouse (a04cc3)

  22. I didn’t say nuffin’ ’bout “real jobs”. The Palestinian guy who sells me my tobacco has a real job. I’m sure Ms. Ernst is a great farmer and Ms. Love cooks a mean corn casserole. I pointed the “qualifications” the GOP promoted. Their X chromosomes and Ms. Love’s youth and skin tone. Not their ability to be two of the 535 people who pass laws for the remaining 329 million. “Look, se, we’re not a party of old white men. Look, look, two girls, one’s even black!” Like that. Tokenism.

    happyfeet (a037ad)

  24. So nk, why don’t you try naming a few Congressmen who are better qualified for their current jobs than Love and Ernst? Beside the private sector jobs that both have held, and Ernst’s military carreer, how is mayor or state senator not adequate preparation for congress?

    Milhouse (a04cc3)

  25. But I’m not harshing my mellow. I just did my first Skype video call, and I’m feeling proud. I’m going to go outside and celebrate with a cold coffee and a cigarette.

    And I think the Quartermaster Corps is a vital component of any military, so Ms. Ernst did do a man’s job there.

    nk (dbc370)

  26. Greetings:

    Again, Ms. Fiorina comes across impressively especially in the aforementioned “she fights” way. The last six plus years of American politics has pretty much convinced me that compassion and politeness are not adequate tools with which to save this Republic.

    My current concern about her candidacy has to do with her ability to connect with and/or sway the now dreaded “low-information” voters on whom our Democratic brothers and sisters and whatevers seem to have a lock.

    11B40 (0f96be)

  27. Same thing, here. I like Carly. I don’t know how she’ll be received by the frumps, who’ll identify better with fat thighs and pantsuits than with intelligence, class, and poise.

    nk (dbc370)

  28. The Transportation Corps has not been part of the Quartermaster Corps since 1942.

    Milhouse (a04cc3)

  29. Okay. I didn’t know what her exact job was. My father drove a truck in the army and he was part of mechanized mountain troops.

    nk (dbc370)

  30. The problem is Get Out the Vote campaigns, which are the main vehicles for encouraging low information types to follow MSM’s advise and turn out on election day (to vote for Democrats) as some sort of patriotic duty.

    What we need is a national effort telling half-wits and dumb-asses that it’s OK to stay home if they haven’t put in the time and effort to learn about the candidates and their position on the issues.

    It’s better to stay home and not vote than to be tricked into voting for some two-faced liar who will never represent your interests. If you con’t tell the difference, don’t vote.

  31. Basically they’ve both been supported by government checks since college which to me makes them no better than welfare queens.

    You are aware that there is a difference between doing a job that is vital to the function of any government (e.g. an executive or military position) and getting paid for not working… correct?

    Of all the people to receive government checks, mayors and enlisted personnel are up there with policemen and firemen. Those are simply jobs that cannot be in the realm of the private sector, and, without which, we wouldn’t have a functioning society.

    This.

  33. Once again today I must apologize to Milhouse for a flagrant stupid error. I completely skipped the pertinent information on Mia Love and misread a site about Ernst. I have since saved the info and later when I have more time will rad it completely. However, sorry once again. I once more sign off:

    Idiot Hoagster (f4eb27)

  34. Don’t worry about it, Idiot. I’ve made much stupider errors. And not just in harmless blog comments, but ones with real consequences. Sometimes you’re the one correcting someone else’s errors, and sometimes the egg is on your face. That’s why beta readers and testers exist.

    Also, as I’m sure nk will tell you, “idiot” in the original Greek is not an insult; it just means an ordinary person. (And it made its way in that sense into Hebrew as “hediot”.)

    Milhouse (a04cc3)

  35. Kipling on idiots:

    ‘E’s all ‘ot sand an’ ginger when alive,
    An’ ‘e’s generally shammin’ when ‘e’s dead.
    ‘E’s a daisy, ‘e’s a ducky, ‘e’s a lamb!
    ‘E’s a injia-rubber idiot on the spree,
    ‘E’s the on’y thing that doesn’t give a damn
    For a Regiment o’ British Infantree!

  36. doesn’t hillary’s beauty routine talk essentially come from the same place as the hoochies need free tampons talk

    meanwhile National Soros Radio uses tax monies to elucidate you on the following subject in the public interest

    Health Effects Of Transitioning In Teen Years Remain Unknown

    sampling of the bibble babble your tax monies are generate

    But Olson says it’s ridiculous to think it would take individuals 16 years to determine their gender identity, and that it’s unfair to assume that about transgender people. “That really doesn’t apply to people who aren’t transgender. You wouldn’t ask somebody who’s not transgender at 16 or 18 if you’re sure you know your gender,” she says.
