Abortion Dr. George Tiller Gunned Down, Suspect In Custody

My first reaction to this news…shock and sadness. However much I disapproved of what Tiller did for a living, I do think that he sincerely believed that he was providing a valuable service. And  the manner in which he was assassinated – gunned down in church is horrible! My condolences go out to his family.

Dr. George Tiller, one of the nation’s few providers of late-term abortions despite decades of protests and attacks, was shot and killed Sunday in a church where he was serving as an usher.

The gunman fled, but a 51-year-old suspect was detained some 170 miles away in suburban Kansas City three hours after the shooting, Wichita Deputy Police Chief Tom Stolz said.

Although Stolz refused to release the man’s name, Johnson County sheriff’s spokesman Tom Erickson identified the detained man as Scott Roeder. He has not been charged in the slaying and was expected to be taken to Wichita for questioning.

Gateway Pundit has some additional info on the suspect, who has been identified :

It was not his first arrest.
Free Republic had this from the ADL:

Scott Roeder is sentenced to sixteen months in state prison for parole violations following a 1996 conviction for having bomb components in his car trunk. Roeder, a sovereign citizen and tax protester, violated his parole by not filing tax returns or providing his social security number to his employer.He is a pro-lifer, except when he kills abortionists:

UPDATE 3: Scott Roeder was convicted back in 1996 on bomb charges.
This guy was a nut… and a killer.

UPDATE 4: Roeder was a “Freemen” member:

Topeka, Kan. – Preliminary hearing for Scott Roeder, Freemen member charged with possessing bomb parts.

The Freemen are a radical anti-government group.

Info on the Freeman movement, here.

UPDATE 5: Roeder was on the FBI’s list as a Freeman member back in 1996 when he was arrested:

See Gateway Pundit for screenshot.

So, from what we know so far…this wacko was anti-abortion, and anti-tax.

Great. Just great.

I wonder how the media is going to spin this?

Something tells me that Glenn Beck, and Craig T. Nelson’s anti-tax rebellion just stalled in a big way.

U.S. Marshals were sent to guard abortion clinics across America today amid fears the murder of a controversial doctor could spark a new wave of violence.

This murder has set off a wave of strong condemnation from pro life groups, but whatever.  In light of recent events, is he going to send marshals out to military recruitment offices, too?

UPDATE: The Daily Mail has since removed that headline, and scrubbed the article of any reference to it.  But other sites like Fox are reporting that Eric Holder is directing US marshals to “facilities across the nation”.

Blogger Ponders Pravda Piece


It’s a great story, because if anybody knows Marxism, the Russians should:

American capitalism gone with a whimper

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Read on…it’s hard hitting stuff, which is why blogger after blogger after blogger, after blogger after blogger after friggin’ blogger is linking to it, this weekend. Every time I turn around – whoops! There’s that Pravda story, again!

The thing is, the piece was posted 4/27/09,  and Nice Deb linked to it on MAY 5, people!


Check me out once in awhile, ya bums, ya. I specialize in finding great stuff like that (except on weekends…and well…now that schools out for summer…eh, not so much). But still.

Latest Dealergate Links


Most people, for some reason are still being directed to my first post on Dealergate, meaning my second one, which has been keeping track of the latest blogposts across the right wing blogosphere, is being missed.

Doug Ross: Daily Dealergate: A “Dealer Council” and Reverse Discrimination

The latest development: Chrysler’s “Dealer Council” posted a letter at the new Chrysler LLC website. It says that the remaining Chrysler dealers are as pleased as punch with the way the dealership shuffle turned out.

It turns out seven of the dealers were Democrat contributors while three gave to GOP candidates (one was Ron Paul, so the figure is really two).

Josh Painter then sinks the knife in deep with a spot-on coup de grâce:

“If, as the Obama apologists claim, that most car dealers are Republicans, why does the Chrysler Dealer Council have more than twice as many dealers on it who donated to Democrats than those who gave to GOP candidates? Let them chew on that one for a while. I’m sure they will come up with something.”

My, My: The Obama Administration Has Really Endeared Itself To the Brits, Hasn’t It?

Two opeds about Obama in the UK Telegraph, today, and wow, they’re doozies.

Item One:


Memo to Obama attack dog Robert Gibbs: stop pooping on our lawn

Ouch. Not impressed with Gibbs..not impressed with Obama. Here’s a taste:

Memo to US Press secetary Robert Gibbs

1. Congratulations. Your presidential regime has managed to secure the most supine, slobbering, spineless, unquestioning media coverage since Enver Hoxha’s Albania. A report last month by the Center for Media and Public Affairs said Obama has received more coverage than his two predecessors combined. On ABC, CBS and NBC news the majority of evaluations – 58 per cent – have been favourable. (Compare GW Bush – 33 per cent; Bill Clinton 44 per cent – in first 50 days of office). More importantly, you have Pravda. Yes, no less than 73 per cent of all evaluative comments in your chief propaganda organ – aka The New York Times – have been favourable to Obama.

2. Sure your congenitally libtard Mainstream Media were probably biased that way anyway, but you have played your part. Your combative style – which led you to dismiss the entire British print media just now in one glib, sneering phrase – has earned you the nickname “The Enforcer.” You have a reputation for coming down hard on any media outlet which doesn’t follow your approved version of reality. “I work the referee a little bit,” as you once put it. (A reference, perhaps, to when you played goalkeeper for your college football team).

Go read the entire thing. I think it’s safe to say that the James Delingpole is not “enchanted”.

Item two:


Barack Obama: all the bad guys are giving President Pantywaist the finger

HAHAHHAHAHAHA…. heh. ….*sob!!*:

Kim Jong-il, the charismatic and popular (if you are a Pyongyang resident and covet a life expectancy of more than 24 hours) Dear Leader of North Korea, is on his sixth or seventh missile this week. See the pretty vapour trails streak across Asian skies, in an impressive firework display to celebrate the arrival of President Pantywaist in the Oval Office.

School’s out! Suddenly it is playtime for all the naughtier elements in the more “reclusive” parts of the world who enjoy kicking Uncle Sam’s butt but didn’t much relish tangling with Dick Cheney and (what was that other guy’s name?). This time Comrade Kim is really throwing his toys out of the playpen. He has even unilaterally revoked the 1953 armistice between the Korean War belligerents, which means, in case anybody is interested, that North and South Korea are once more at war.

So, what is the response of the Messiah in the Oval Office? Really severe rhetoric, is the answer. The soundbite manufacturers have been burning the midnight oil and the auto-cue is going into meltdown. So is the confidence of Asian leaders. The word is out: the most powerful nation on earth has got itself a pussycat for a president and all the bad guys are queuing up to give him the finger.

Again, read on. It’s cathartic, albeit disturbing.

Of course, that was Gerald Warner who was never fooled for a minute.

Why Would The DOJ Dismiss The Charges Against The New Black Panthers?


The New Black Panthers were big Obama boosters during the ’08 campaign

Speaking of criminal enterprises, how about that Justice Dept. ruling on the New Black Panther Voter intimidation case?

Michelle Malkin, again:

Last week, I called the Justice Department to inquire about an unusual decision they made to dismiss default judgements in a voter intimidation lawsuit the government filed under the Bush administration against the New Black Panther Party.

You remember the case of the menacing NBPP thugs who threatened voters at a Philly precinct. I blogged about it many times since the fall.

The Bush DOJ filed suit against Malik Shabazz and two of the local NBPP radicals who were on site — one with a billy club. None of them filed an answer to the lawsuit, putting them all into default. I am told this is the easiest way to win a lawsuit. But instead of taking the default judgment that DOJ is entitled to against all of the defendants, the department last week dismissed the lawsuit against two out of the three defendants. As Election Journal (which broke the story with exclusive video of the intimidation) notes, one of the individual defendants who was dismissed, Jerry Jackson, “is an elected member of the Philadelphia Democratic Committee and was a credentialed poll watcher.”

According to a legal source familiar with DOJ procedures, dismissing a lawsuit won by default is unheard of.

Gabe has more at AoSHQ.

Armed thugs blocked voting stations and said, “You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.”

Obama’s Justice dept doesn’t have a problem with that.

UPDATE (June 2):

A little more about this from the Corner’s, Hans A. von Spakovsky:

The Southern Poverty Law Center says that the New Black Panther Party is a hate group, similar to the Ku Klux Klan. Whether that is so or not, two of the officers of the NBPP were caught red-handed, one brandishing a weapon, threatening white voters at the polls. One complaining witness, Bartle Bull (a former Robert Kennedy campaign staffer and civil-rights lawyer) said “it would qualify as the most blatant form of voter intimidation” he had ever encountered.

As a former DOJ alumnus, I have never, ever heard of the Division refusing to take a default judgment, especially in a situation where the defendants are basically admitting they violated the law. The facts indicting the DOJ seem damning, and no good explanation seems possible. Indeed, it raises a serious question whether straightforward but pernicious racial-identity politics are at play, the same kind driving
the president’s Supreme Court nomination. Do the same people who excuse Sonia Sotomayor’s racist speeches allow Holder and Co. to dismiss racist intimidation by the New Black Panther Party? Should application of the civil-rights laws (by Sotomayor in the Ricci case and the DOJ in the NBPP case) really  turn on the sympathies the officials have for different racial litigants? Should racist minority members get a pass when whites would not? Does the Left believe that only white supremacists (or Republicans) can engage in racism or intimidation of voters? Do the prohibitions in federal voting-rights laws not apply to radical organizations with Marxist orientations?

This scandalous DOJ action also is consistent with the partisan decision I wrote about recently in NRO where the Civil Rights Division dismissed a lawsuit under the National Voter Registration Act. The suit was dismissed without explanation just one month after the Democratic defendant announced she was running for the Senate. Race and partisan politics seems to have completely permeated the decision-making in the Civil Rights Division. Unless there is some other convincing non-discriminatory reason for their actions, Eric Holder and the president must be held to account for these brewing scandals.

I’m sure as soon as the media is through blaming pro-lifers for late term abortionist, Dr. Tiller’s murder, they’ll be all over this story.

ACORN Is A Criminal Enterprise

Kris Kobach, running for Kansas Secretary of State  sums up his motivation in just one word:

“ACORN,” he told a modest audience that gathered Thursday for lunch at Salina’s Western Sizzlin restaurant.

Salina is one of eight cities Kobach, who until recently was chairman of the Kansas Republican Party, is visiting to announce his desire to be secretary of state.

ACORN — the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — is an aggressive get-out-the-vote organization that represents low- and moderate-income people nationally. “Since 1970, ACORN has been building community organizations that are committed to social and economic justice,” its Web site says.

Kobach describes it differently.

“ACORN is a criminal enterprise,” he said Thursday.

He said 12 ACORN workers in Missouri were convicted of violating voter laws in connection with 2006 elections.

Voter fraud was the central theme of Kobach’s campaign stop. He warned of the “rise of ACORN” and said it was only after the November election that he learned ACORN has three offices in Kansas.

“We didn’t find out until after the election how busy they have been in Kansas,” he said.

Read the entire article. Good luck to Kobach. He’s fighting a good fight.

If you haven’t read Michelle Malkin’s document drop on ACORN, yet…better get over there. The spotlight is on this criminal enterprise, and it’s not going away anytime, soon.
