While short of an official endorsement, Sarah Palin was effusive in her praise for GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, claiming the celebrity billionaire is in touch with working class "Joe Six Pack" values. "I am so happy that he is running," she said.
Appearing on Fox's On The Record with Greta Van Susteren Tuesday, Palin was asked if she was endorsing the candidate and billionaire business leader:
"Here's the deal Greta, he's the best thing to happen to the permanent political class since the beauty of the Tea Party genuine movement rose up and shined light on crony capitalism, and then pulled the rug right out from under the status quo politicians who just kind of embrace the permanent political class," said Palin. more >>
A bill introduced in the Canadian Province of Quebec seeks to curtail "hate speech" and may go as so far as to suppress and target individuals critical of Islam and other protected groups.
Bill 59, which was introduced in Quebec's National Assembly in June, declares in its introduction its purpose "to prevent and combat hate speech and speech inciting violence."
Canada currently has prohibitions against hate speech in its criminal code but this legislation allows for greater investigative power and authority for the Quebec Human Rights Commission, with first offenders of "hate speech" being fined $1000 to $10,000 and repeat offenders facing fines as high as $20,000. more >>
The Center for Medical Progress' seventh video highlighting the aborted baby parts compensation practices of Planned Parenthood alleges that the abortion giant and its former partnering company StemExpress have harvested an intact brain from a gestated fetus whose heart was still beating.
The new video, which was released Wednesday morning, shows an interview with Holly O'Donnell, a former StemExpress fetal tissue procurement technician, who recounted the time she was asked to harvest the brain from an almost fully gestated aborted baby at a Planned Parenthood clinic in California.
O'Donnell recalled that she was in a Planned Parenthood clinic one day when a doctor had just finished with an abortion and took the aborted baby into a pathology lab.

The World Evangelical Alliance Chairman of the Global Task Force on Nuclear Weapons has personally come out in defense of the widely debated U.S.-Iran nuclear deal, and criticized what he called "outrageous" and "irresponsible" remarks from politicians such as Mike Huckabee, who compared the deal to the Holocaust, and Michele Bachmann, who said it might bring about the End Times.
In a phone interview with The Christian Post on Tuesday, Tyler Wigg-Stevenson, who is also founder and director of The Two Futures Project, a network of American Christians urging the abolition of nuclear weapons, emphasized that the WEA does not have an official position on the deal, but shared in his own view that he believes the deal will indeed make the world a safer place.
"I think that the Iran deal, as it is negotiated, will make the world a better place. Assuming that Iran does want a nuclear weapon, then the deal makes getting one much harder for the foreseeable future, and also it imposes measures that are ensured to catch any attempt at cheating," Wigg-Stevenson told CP. more >>
