Lila Rose is a student activist at UCLA who has dedicated herself to building a culture of life and ending abortion. At age fifteen, Lila founded Live Action, which is now a growing nonprofit with several chapters in California. Live Action is a youth-led organization and uses new media to educate and mobilize both local and national audiences to demand accountability from the abortion industry and human rights for the pre-born.
Lila has led numerous undercover stings through Live Action, exposing corruption and illegal activity within Planned Parenthood, the Nation’s number one Abortion provider. “The Mona Lisa Project,” vividly illustrates how Planned Parenthood’s ‘abortion-first mentality’ leads it to disregard state laws meant to protect young girls, instead sending them back into the arms of their sexual abusers. It has prompted officials in several states to take action against Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood affiliates are the subject of ongoing investigations in Indiana and Alabama, and the Tennessee legislature recently voted to end up to $1.1 million in taxpayer subsidies to the abortion provider. Similarly, the Alabama Department of Health put the Birmingham clinic under severe investigation as a result of the undercover video taped there. The clinic has been put on a one-year probation as the investigation continues to uncover illegal and wrongful proceedings. Also released is a collection of phone calls made too the Planned Parenthood Development offices under the name of “The Racism Project,” which captured Planned Parenthood employees behaving hospitably to and receiving donations from an actor posing as an outspoken racist.
Lila is currently releasing the “The Rosa Acuna Project” which reveals Planned Parenthood counselors and abortionists manipulating patients and giving medical misinformation.
The next focus of demonstrators protesting collective bargaining reforms should be Columbus, Ohio where thousands, if not tens-of-thousands, of protestors are expected to gather Tuesday and shout their views about a controversial bill that puts labor unions in the crosshairs of a determined governor intent on salvaging his state’s financial situation.
The protests should look and sound much like the ones from Madison, Wisconsin that have gripped the nation in the recent days and marries an uncomfortable economic reality with political opportunity.
“It’s to put our children first. It’s to do the things without regard to political considerations and try to serve the public,” Ohio Governor John Kasich told FOX News late Monday afternoon from the same building where demonstrators will rally Tuesday. “And if we get that done; we balance our budget–$8 billion in the hole–without a tax increase and we’ve cut taxes on income taxes, that’s going to send a message to the rest of that country that if they can do it [in Columbus], they can do it in their state and they maybe, guess what, they might actually be able to do something like this in Washington.”
While the broad pictures of Wisconsin and Ohio are similar with declarations of impending economic disaster and cures of pension and collective bargaining reform, a closer look at the proposals in both states reveal a significant difference.
Thanks to Bill Turner for this link…From the source itself (SEIU) They plan on hitting State Capitols in 7 states on the 21st, 11 states, 13 cities on the 22nd, 3 states on the 23rd and 1 state on the 24th.
Patriots , PLEASE get this to any Tea Party and all citizens of these states. These thugs are PROFESSIONAL activists being paid for their bully tactics. They obviously are not employed elsewhere. WHO is paying for the purple tour bus tour to agitate the citizens of these cities they will be falling in?! Obama? Soros? Who?!

Union goon with a creep spike hat
From Fire Andrea Mitchell:
Just more “civility” and “peace” from these filthy far left progressive union thugs. In case you didn’t see the video and pictures from yesterday where the union thugs in Wisconsin had signs of Scott Walker as Hitler, Mussolini, Hosni Mubarak, and cross hairs over his face. Today, P’Oed Patriot via Gateway Pundit posted a brand new video of a union thug verbally attacking a tea partier.
Progressives/Union thugs are good about both verbal and physical attacks.
If you want to watch the following video, be forewarned the union thug spews not only his hatred but profanity as well.
A union thug verbally assaults the tea party calling them several obscenaties like corporate D*** suckers, and nazis now where have we seen the left acting like this before oh right the anti koch brother protest in CA where some lefty protesters were calling for Clarence Thomas to be hanged, one rally attendee said send him back to the fields.
Progressive columnists who, for whatever reason, are allowed to post poorly-written Kos fantasies in a publication like Forbes and are freaking out over, who else? The Koch Brothers. Rick Ungar ironically and generously quotes the Soros-funded Think Progress in his diatribe about the Wisconsin protests.
Even if, for the sake of this ridiculous argument, the Koch brothers were involved in funding a portion of the rally, who cares? Ungar misses the irony of quoting a Soros publication while complaining about the Koch brothers. He misses the irony of standing for government-organized protests. He props up one bajillionaire while whining about another. It’s good enough for progressives to allow the White House to abuse its power and stir up tension in state capitols, yet somehow Ungar finds it within himself to draw a boundary when it comes to conservatives doing the same.
These are groups who’ve proudly cashed checks from George Soros, participate in protests organized by OFA, and suddenly boundaries? They’re not mad if billionaires are involved – because then they would have to be angry with themselves – no, they’re just mad that conservatives dare dissent, period.
It’s hypocrisy. If Ungar expects serious consideration as a pundit, he needs to up his content to a higher level than that of a Kos comment. I expect better from Forbes.
Crosshairs on Scott Walker, Hitler, dictator, Mubarak, Mussolini and more:
Cross hairs are at 1 minute 7 seconds and 2 minutes 23 seconds:
~ Of course all of these rabid protestations by the LEFT WING radicals are no surprise. We have known they were bused in to create chaos, much of it evidenced in posts at JUST Piper today. We are full aware Obama is a traitor, in control of the collapse of our beloved country and meddling where no POTUS should go.
We know they are cheats, liars and will stop at nothing, as is proven with any of their so-called rally’s, peace in’s, whatever their Soup du jour is of the day. We know we are in trouble, we were the minute socialists were allowed to run for congress & took the majority house seat.
Back home in Chicago, many of us tried to keep Obama out of the senate. We knew it was a losing battle when we campaigned for Alan Keyes. We knew Obama and his Chicago masheen lead by Rahm, had the WH in it’s sights and the Senate seat was a ruse to get there.
All we can do is counter them with peaceful protests. The new state run media alleges the protests in Wisconsin have been mostly peaceful. Yet another lie! So if we call them out every single time they pull what they are in Wisconsin & Ohio, and any state, USA, we can shut them down. Look, if the TP can organize 15,000 plus in not even 48 hours, we can counter them!
The ‘hunter’ has to stay one step ahead of the game! ~JP
WASHINGTON (AP) — Oil from the BP spill remains stuck on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, according to a scientist’s video and slides that demonstrate the oil isn’t degrading as hoped and has decimated life on parts of the sea floor.
At a science conference in Washington, marine scientist Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia aired early results of her December submarine dives around the BP spill site. She went to places she had visited in the summer and expected the oil and residue from oil-munching microbes would be gone by then. It wasn’t.
Dr. Samantha Joye at the UGA Oil Spill Symposium 1.26.11
“There’s some sort of a bottleneck we have yet to identify for why this stuff doesn’t seem to be degrading,” Joye told the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual conference in Washington. Her research and those of her colleagues contrasts with other studies that show a more optimistic outlook about the health of the gulf, saying microbes did great work munching the oil.
“Magic microbes consumed maybe 10 percent of the total discharge, the rest of it we don’t know,” Joye said, later adding: “there’s a lot of it out there.”
The head of the agency in charge of the health of the Gulf said Saturday that she thought that “most of the oil is gone.” And a Department of Energy scientist, doing research with a grant from BP from before the spill, said his examination of oil plumes in the water column show that microbes have done a “fairly fast” job of eating the oil. Lawrence Berkeley National Lab scientist Terry Hazen said his research differs from Joye’s because they looked at different places at different times.
Joye’s research was more widespread, but has been slower in being published in scientific literature.
In five different expeditions, the last one in December, Joye and colleagues took 250 cores of the sea floor and travelled across 2,600 square miles. Some of the locations she had been studying before the oil spill on April 20 and said there was a noticeable change. Much of the oil she found on the sea floor — and in the water column — was chemically fingerprinted, proving it comes from the BP spill. Joye is still waiting for results to show other oil samples she tested are from BP’s Macondo well.
She also showed pictures of oil-choked bottom-dwelling creatures. They included dead crabs and brittle stars — starfish like critters that are normally bright orange and tightly wrapped around coral. These brittle stars were pale, loose and dead. She also saw tube worms so full of oil they suffocated.
“This is Macondo oil on the bottom,” Joye said as she showed slides. “This is dead organisms because of oil being deposited on their heads.”
Joye said her research shows that the burning of oil left soot on the sea floor, which still had petroleum products. And even more troublesome was the tremendous amount of methane from the BP well that mixed into the Gulf and was mostly ignored by other researchers.
Joye and three colleagues last week published a study in Nature Geoscience that said the amount of gas injected into the Gulf was the equivalent of between 1.5 and 3 million barrels of oil.
“The gas is an important part of understanding what happened,” said Ian MacDonald of Florida State University.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration chief Jane Lubchenco told reporters Saturday that “it’s not a contradiction to say that although most of the oil is gone, there still remains oil out there.”
Earlier this month, Kenneth Feinberg, the government’s oil compensation fund czar, said based on research he commissioned he figured the Gulf of Mexico would almost fully recover by 2012 — something Joye and Lubchenco said isn’t right.
“I’ve been to the bottom. I’ve seen what it looks like with my own eyes. It’s not going to be fine by 2012,” Joye told The Associated Press. “You see what the bottom looks like, you have a different opinion.”
NOAA chief Lubchenco said “even though the oil degraded relatively rapidly and is now mostly but not all gone, damage done to a variety of species may not become obvious for years to come.”
Lubchenco Saturday also announced the start of a Gulf restoration planning process to get the Gulf back to the condition it was on Apr. 19, the day before the spill. That program would eventually be paid for BP and other parties deemed responsible for the spill. This would be separate from an already begun restoration program that would improve all aspects of the Gulf, not just the oil spill, but has not been funded by the government yet, she said.
The new program, which is part of the Natural Resources Damage Assessment program, is part of the oil spill litigation — or out-of-court settlement — in which the polluters pay for overall damage to the ecosystem and efforts to return it to normal. This is different than paying compensation to people and businesses directly damaged by the spill.
The process will begin with public meetings all over the region.
