New Planned Parenthood spin: Organ harvesting, sales "a humanitarian undertaking"
7/15/2015 10:01:27 AM  Ed Morrissey
Has there been any more dire need of PR flacks than Planned Parenthood’s after yesterday’s undercover video? The media sat in stunned silence for hours afterward, awaiting signals on how to proceed with coverage. Their first internal attempt

Video: The "escape" of Mexican drug lord El Chapo
7/15/2015 9:21:55 AM  Ed Morrissey
One can only describe the departure of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman from a Mexican prison as an “escape” in only the most academic of terms. Yes, he left prison without express permission from the Mexican government, which had

Cruz: Congress needs to probe Planned Parenthood
7/15/2015 8:41:45 AM  Ed Morrissey
Perhaps Congress needs to probe Planned Parenthood because they didn’t finish the job the first time around. When Live Action exposed their clinics in a long series of undercover videos for failing to comply with laws intended to stop predators

Whatabooboo: Public, press fall for Moms Demand Action misdirection on Whataburger and guns
7/15/2015 8:01:16 AM  Taylor Millard
There’s a lot of politicizing and anger over Whataburger’s decision to not allow open carry inside its restaurants. Moms Demand Action is proclaiming from the rooftops it was their advocacy which caused Whataburger to end open

Quotes of the day
7/14/2015 10:01:08 PM  Allahpundit
Senior Obama administration officials praised and celebrated one another, as well as the White House's negotiating team in Vienna, following the announcement Tuesday morning of a final deal meant to curb Iran's contested nuclear program. "I couldn't be

The illiberalism of persecuting churches through tax-exempt penalties
7/14/2015 8:41:20 PM  Ed Morrissey
This argument from Damon Linker at The Week depends mightily on the definition of liberal. Damon relies on the historical definition of liberalism to denounce calls from the Left to punish churches through their tax-exempt status for refusing to

Here we go: Trump leads GOP field nationally with 17% in new USA Today poll
7/14/2015 8:01:25 PM  Allahpundit
Who could have guessed that today’s nuclear deal wouldn’t be the strongest omen of the apocalypse? Good news for Trump, great news for Jeb. In the nationwide survey, Trump leads at 17% and former Florida governor Jeb Bush is second at 14%,

NYT: The Bern will wear off
7/14/2015 7:21:47 PM  Matt Vespa
For liberal voters feeling the Bern, you should (if you're a Democrat) congratulate one another. You have made Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) the official anti-Clinton candidate in the 2016 Democratic primary. He was once down by nearly 50 points in New

Oh my: Hillary starting to inch away from Obama's terrible Iran deal?
7/14/2015 6:41:04 PM  Allahpundit
She sounded awfully sanguine about it this morning. What happened? Maybe she … read the agreement. Remember, she qualified her praise earlier today by noting her comments were “based on what I know now, and I will be being briefed as soon as

Remove work requirements and food stamp enrollment explodes in a SNAP
7/14/2015 6:01:10 PM  Matt Vespa
In 2012, the dependency index increased by 23 percent under the Obama administration. At the time, it meant 67 million Americans were on some sort of federal subsistence program. Of course, Americans who fall on hard times deserve to be caught by some

NASA celebrates Pluto flyby
7/14/2015 5:21:12 PM  Gabriel Malor
How about a change of pace? One bright spot in today’s news is the New Horizons mission to the outer reaches of the Solar System. This morning, the space probe zipped past Pluto in data collection mode after almost ten years in space. More than

Trump: Why didn't Obama demand that Iran release its four U.S. prisoners as part of the deal?
7/14/2015 4:41:49 PM  Allahpundit
When the guy’s right, he’s right, especially the bit about Obama dealing from desperation. When your only options are bombing Iran, doing nothing, and making a terrible deal that can be spun as successful, and you’ve already ruled out

Netanyahu on the Iran deal: "What a stunning historic mistake!"
7/14/2015 4:01:20 PM  Allahpundit
There are two ways to stop Iran’s nuclear program. One is to end the program itself, the original goal of these negotiations. If you can’t get them to agree to that, your other option is to change the regime’s behavior, either by

Tuesday TEMS: Owen Strachan, Jeff Dunetz, Pete Hoekstra
7/14/2015 3:21:06 PM  Ed Morrissey
Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! We’ll be live on the Ustream channel again: Andrew Malcolm, the Prince of Twitter, is the King of Vacation today. We’ll catch up with him in a

Planned Parenthood responds: Nucatola's just talking about reimbursements!; Update: Jindal orders LA probe, halt to PP license; Update: Unedited 3-hour video added
7/14/2015 2:41:02 PM  Ed Morrissey
It took a few hours for Planned Parenthood to respond to the Center for Medical Progress exposé earlier today. LifeNews reports that their VP for communications wants everyone to know there’s no real story here. This is just business as usual.

10th Circuit to Little Sisters of the Poor: Comply with contraception mandate
7/14/2015 2:01:59 PM  Ed Morrissey
Guess which ObamaCare case will be headed to the Supreme Court next? At least, that’s the option open for the Little Sisters of the Poor and their defense team at The Becket Fund for the restoration of a temporary injunction against compliance with

Report: nearly one-third of veterans in VA backlog died before receiving VA healthcare
7/14/2015 1:21:14 PM  Gabriel Malor
This is an astonishing report from the Huffington Post. According to leaked slides from a Veterans Affairs whistleblower, 238,657 of 847,822 veterans whose enrollments were pending with the VA were “likely deceased.” More than 28% of pending

Hillary: Hey, this deal with Iran looks pretty good, huh?
7/14/2015 12:41:29 PM  Ed Morrissey
It depends on which Hillary Clinton gets the question. In front of the media, the Democratic frontrunner for the sap that gets stuck with Barack Obama’s agreement with Iran calls it “an important step,” but hedges away from complete

Video: Planned Parenthood's profit off of fetal body parts
7/14/2015 12:01:53 PM  Ed Morrissey
Live Action today features another exposé of Planned Parenthood, but this time it’s not just one clinic violating state laws on reporting or practices. The Center for Medical Progress conducted an undercover investigation into PP’s operations

Senior admin official: On second thought, "anytime, anywhere inspections" for Iran were never realistic
7/14/2015 11:21:09 AM  Allahpundit
A nice detail from the JPost’s write-up of today’s grand sellout. Turns out “snap inspections” are actually “nearly-a-month’s-notice inspections.” Negotiators failed to meet the standard of achieving

Transparency: Hillary, State withheld two Benghazi-related e-mails from select committee
7/14/2015 10:41:16 AM  Ed Morrissey
So much for full transparency and cooperation. The House Select Committee on Benghazi confirms that two e-mails demanded in a FOIA action from Judicial Watch have never been provided to investigators, neither by the State Department nor Hillary Clinton,
