    Federal Appeals Court Rules Videos Exposing Planned Parenthood Selling Baby Parts Not Deceptively Edited
    By Micaiah Bilger – January 18, 2019 | 3:01PM WASHINGTON, DC

    For years now, mainstream news outlets have been running with the claim that undercover videos of Planned Parenthood selling baby parts were deceptively edited or debunked. It’s a claim put forward by the abortion industry, but it is not true.

        nope. for whatever reason, the er doc didn’t want to give me one; said going the nasaid/therapy route should be first. easy for him to say.

        the entire arm/clavicle/shoulder blade and left neck is involved now and my wrist feels like someone is trying to cut it off. i’m in-taking more advil than food. who knows, with our doctor shortage, how many days i’ll have to live this way until therapy can start…had to put in a request through my primary care doc to get therapy approval from my insurance. i’ve been doing one er-instructed exercise which is moving the arm in a circular motion, to the right and then to the left, while pointed toward the floor.

        on monday i’ll call my regular doc and plead with him for a shot…hopefully he’s got experience with such a procedure on the shoulder. if not, i’ll have to put in another authorization request to see a specialist.

        the advantage of living in a big city where you can get a same-day appointment easily cannot be overestimated. being independently wealthy would be nice, too. lol.

    Ten good things about today 🙂 .


    2) Jay Sekulow is talking publicly about whatever Mueller and/or the FBI is gathering is fruit of the poisonous tree. Maybe he has been out there saying this before? Rudy Giuliani has insulted as much before.

    3) Nancy Pelosi the angry skin draped Skeletor, the same “let American children die, women be raped, Americans be slaughtered, crime run unfettered” Nancy Pelosi, accused President Trump of endangering her life by telling her to fly commercial 😂.

    Beside the ridiculousness of her claim isn’t that one of the criteria for a dictatorship only the right people’s lives have value? Everyone else is there for the service of the ruling elite and expendable as used Kleenex.

    Bonus fact when Nancy does fly commercial (DC to CA) she spend about $1000.00 a week of our money on booze.

    4) President Trump is exposing the scam that CODEL excursions are to the public.

    5) Ignored again by the MSM but, ”An estimated 100,000 people — including Vice President Mike Pence & President Trump” — gathered in DC on Friday for the annual March for Life.

    6) Cranes

    7) We have some very witty and funny people on Team Trump.

    ”Fun Fact: If you could shrink the sun down to the size of a marble, it would still not be as dense as you.” @CarpeDonktum

    8) Wayne Dupree’s mom made a decision to not kill him. Thank you Mr. Dupree’s birth mom 🙏🏼❤️.

    ‘Thank You to the Birth Mother I Never Met’

    She made a choice to have me — and it’s been a great gift of life.

    9) This tortoise’s prosthetic.

      Where she sees that Barr is uncomfortable and maybe worries about something being exposed, I see as a disdain for all the babbling of the committee.

          Oh, good point. That works. My overall impression of Barr is that he is a man who wants to get the job done. And, he knows this hearing is going to be a lot of posturing. I think he has little patience for that.

            I’m seeing a guy who knew he’d be hit by buckets of partisan political BS, prepared for being hit by buckets of partisan political BS and is repressing his natural reaction to being hit by the expected buckets of partisan political BS. Yup, I’m seeing repressed irritation with disdain frosting, letting them know without saying just how disgusted he is of them and the process.

      This is what I posted about him yesterday.

      The Honorable William Barr simultaneously treats the Left elites with disdain and affability a close to unbeatable strategy.

      I agree with her assessment of Barr being reserved and not acting chummy with colleagues. I like that.

      I would have looked much like Barr while Feinstein was yammering. I despise Feinstein and her hypocrisy.

      I thought her analysis about “friend” was off. Was Feinstein reading from Barr’s statement when she said “You said even though you have been friends” (with Bob Mueller) ?

      If Feinstein was reading from Barr’s statement then Feinstein’s meaning of friend is irrelevant, and the interpreter is “reading” Barr’s reaction to hoe he described his own relationship with bob Mueller. would have been reacting to his own words. It seems pretty reasonable to me that Barr was using “friend” as a person who ran in his professional circles and who he crossed paths with during that time and possibly some social occasion also but the social occasions would have involved colleagues.

      As to Lindsey and Feinstein, I thought Lindsey was uncomfortable facing Barr, I do believe Lindsey’s reaction to how Kavanaugh was treated was genuine and that is why I think Lindsey was turned slightly away from Barr at first.

      Note that Lindsey does not respond to Feinstein touching him.He ignores her. Lindsey is also using his arm as a protector or shield between him and Diane Feinstein (as she states) but we read the wholeness of that scenario very differently.

      I totally understand her distrust of Lindsey.

      This body language expert (I forget her name ) is very enjoyable but also in my opinion very prone to confirmation bias. I have watched several of her videos and I think she is generally close to the truth but she does a bit too much editorializing to be taken too seriously for me, even though I agree with her opinions of most people and her analysis.

      I thought the good part was when Blumenthal was speaking and Barr had a look on his face like he had absolutely no respect for what he was saying. Almost like he thought Blumenthal was nuts.

    No smart tv for us. Id rather just not have a tv. I suspected this was the case here.

    A significant reason why a smart TV, or perhaps a new 65-inch 4K smart TV with HDR capability, can be purchased for about $500, is because some manufacturers are harvesting data from users.

    Vizio’s Chief Technology Officer, Bill Baxter, outlined the strategy to The Verge during the Consumer Electronics Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada last Monday.

    “This is a cutthroat industry. It’s a 6% margin industry,” Baxter said. “The greater strategy is I really don’t need to make money off of the TV. I need to cover my cost.”

    More specifically, electronic manufacturers like Vizio have figured out that they can sell smart TVs at, or around cost, and concentrate on data harvesting and post-purchase monetization.

    As Baxter put it: “It’s not just about data collection. It’s about post-purchase monetization of the TV.”

    He explained there are several ways to monetize smart TVs: “You sell some movies, you sell some TV shows, you sell some ads, you know.”

    Baxter said, without the additional forms of revenue, consumers would be paying higher premiums for smart TVs. “We’d collect a little bit more margin at retail to offset it.”

    Listen to the full interview here 

    Vizio TVs, have the ability, with user opt-in, track anything that is on the TV, what the company calls “automatic content recognition.” That data used to be sold off to third-party data aggregators, but after the Federal Trade Commission and New Jersey slapped the company with a multi-million dollar fine in 2017. 

    Legal documents from the case reportedly show that Vizio installed software on 11 million smart TVs to track viewing habits without consumers’ knowledge.

    Now, Vizio keeps the data but sells targeted advertising in a platform model like Google and Facebook.

    So you must be wondering how much data is Vizio collecting from smart TVs?

    Well, the Verge’s editor-in-chief, Nilay Patel, tweeted that a connected VIZIO P-Series Class 4K HDR Smart TV pings a server over 500,000 times a week or nearly once every second, much more than the typical device.

    My parents’ brand new Vizio P-Series TV (which is not set up to stream anything, they have an Apple TV) pings a server 10x more than any other device they own

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
