As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

White House Defends Planned Parenthood

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Wednesday defended Planned Parenthood in the wake of videos showing a top Planned Parenthood official callously discussing the harvesting and sale of fetal organs.

Earnest said the videos were deceitful:

I haven’t spoken to the President about the actual videos. I have read the reports, and I’m confident that he has, too, raising significant concerns about the way in which those videos were selectively edited to distort not just the words of the individual speaking, but also the position of Planned Parenthood. They have made very clear that they subscribe to the highest — they subscribe and implement the highest ethical standards in carrying out their operations. So for questions about that, I’d refer you to Planned Parenthood, obviously.

He said President Obama “obviously” opposes legislation cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood.

  1. of COURSE the WH defends Planned Parenthood. on any issue just pick the most lefty progressive stance and that’s where you’ll find Obama, from global warming to Palestinian “freedom fighters.”

    Baghdad Josh says:

    “…the way in which those videos were selectively edited to distort not just the words of the individual speaking, but also the position of Planned Parenthood….”

    come on. both videos have been widely available online, completely unedited. Josh certainly knows that. it’s gotten to the point where they just lie and don’t even care if we know it.

    but let’s say there is missing ‘context’. what is it? how do you contextualize “we’re gonna extract the fetus differently so we can get those livers intact because a lot of people want to buy them” so that it sounds ok?

  2. And it gets even crazier. House Democrats just sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch asking her to investigate not Planned Parenthood, but the Center for Medical Progress for their “sketchy” videos:

    Not investigate Planned Parenthood’s selling of body parts, but investigate the people who reported it.

    Via Daily Caller:

    The Democrats can’t make the Planned Parenthood disaster go away. They can’t rebut the facts. They can’t convince people that the evidence of their own senses is a hoax. So they’re trying to use their political power to protect their investment and maintain their control.

    “Sketchy.” Killing babies and haggling over the price of their organs isn’t “sketchy.” Exposing it is.

    We’ve now seen how two high-level Planned Parenthood abortionists talked about their work when they thought they were making a business deal, and there are more videos coming. If this is the best defense the abortion enthusiasts can muster, there might be hope for the future after all.

  3. The President and Josh Earnest wouldn’t recognize’highest ethical standards’if the term was tattoed on their ‘standards’.

  4. Susan Rice is the WH video expert.

    The video makers could be arrested and disappear for about a year or two. Been known to happen I hear. Parole violations. Or eating something not on the MO Approved Food List. It’s always something.

    Stupid Josh. It’s about the content. Can’t rise above politics and see the inhumanity.

  5. If that was “edited to distort the words..” then those video magicians should be conscripted to work for the CIA.

    No matter how one stands – pro-life/pro-choice, the harvesting of a baby’s organs for profit is something even the NAZIs didn’t imagine doing.
    This is a crime, an outrageous offense against humanity that should be competely investigated and the monsters should be charged.

  6. There was just a clip on the morning news now. The news readers were oohing and aahing over a shark that came ashore in Florida with a hook in its mouth. Someone on the beach removed the hook and set the shark back in the water.

    A shark!!!? No reporting on the Planned Parenthood selling human body parts, though.

    Where has our country gone?

  7. Go after the truth bearer messengers, for certain! That is the method used by the D’s at all times. Evidently, the video cameras won’t be truthful for anyone to tape situations, including for law enforcement?
