Deceptively edited ‘torture sex’ video convinces Colorado AG to target Planned Parenthood

Published

on

Colorado’s attorney general will investigate Planned Parenthood clinics after anti-abortion activists posted deceptively edited undercover videos of staffers offering sex advice.

In the videos, notorious anti-abortion activist Lila Rose poses as a 15-year-old girl and tells the counselor that her boyfriend wants to try out some of the sadomasochistic scenarios described in the popular novel, “Fifty Shades of Gray.”

The counselor, whose face is obscured in the video, advises the “teen” to read the book with her boyfriend, do some Internet research, and discuss which practices they feel comfortable trying – and which they do not.

She also explains the concept of “safe words,” which submissive partners may use to unambiguously communicate they wish to stop sexual activity, and urges the undercover activist to choose another word besides “stop.”

“Usually, a lot of people will say ‘stop’ even though it feels good, so that’s usually not something that is used,” the counselor says in the video.

Live Action posted the edited videos — which appear to leave out questions posed by the undercover activist about various sexual practices, including urinating and defecating on partners, to the unwitting counselor – and claimed Planned Parenthood workers were teaching teens about “torture sex.”

The anti-abortion activists apparently targeted the Denver clinic, which has been sued after performing an abortion for a 13-year-old brought to the facility by her stepfather – who was later convicted of raping the girl.

“Here’s an abortion corporation, which gets 45 percent of its budget from the taxpayers, telling 15- and 16-year-olds not only to have sex, but also to choke each other in the process,” said Rose, Live Action’s president. “Police should be busting down its door.”

Live Action also posted videos showing similar scenarios at clinics in Indianapolis and Willamette, Oregon.

Although Colorado Attorney General John Suthers has agreed to investigate the activists’ claims about the videos, he lacks jurisdiction to prosecute any potential wrongdoing.

The activists direct fellow abortion foes to contact the Arapahoe County prosecutor.

“Parents of every political persuasion can come together and condemn an institutional ethos where sexual abuse of teens is portrayed as consensual sexual activity – where tax-funded counselors can recommend internet pornography and sex shops, and advise children on how to hide these things from their parents,” Rose said.

Rose founded Live Action at 15 and developed an association with fellow conservative activist and videographer James O’Keefe III while she was a student at UCLA.

Rose and O’Keefe have argued that, essentially, the ends justify the means in their heavily edited video “exposés” that purportedly show illegal or unethical practices by Planned Parenthood employees.

“It’s a pretty complicated ethical issue,” O’Keefe said. “But we believe there is a genocide and nobody cares, and you can use these tactics and it’s justified.”

Trump refusing to pay for New Mexico security and barricades — while trying to change the state from blue to red

Published

on

President Donald Trump thinks he will win New Mexico. He's repeated the factoid multiple times, including to a group of oil and gas workers and executives Wednesday at a conference in Pittsburgh, PA. But he also made two significant mistakes to put that support in jeopardy.

First, the president indicated he was building his "wall" on the border of Colorado, which is north of New Mexico. It would mean that New Mexico was now part of Mexico.

Second, it was reported by the Albuquerque Journal that their city is yet another one Trump's campaign is refusing to pay for security costs.

Published

House investigators have "recent evidence" of witnesses working to coordinate their testimony before Congress, a Democratic congressman revealed on MSNBC on Wednesday.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the Intelligence and Judicial committees, was interviewed by MSNBC Chris Hayes.

"Final question, what is the timeline here?" Hayes asked. "There is some transparency argument that at some point this can’t be behind closed doors, the American people, all of us, Republicans, Democrats, citizens and journalists have to hear what’s happening."

"You’re absolutely right and there will be a public phase," Swalwell replied.

Rudy Giuliani is looking for a lawyer — after saying he didn’t need one: report

Published

on

On Wednesday, CNN reported that President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is looking for a defense attorney to represent him.

This report comes after Giuliani said last week that he would not seek legal representation unless he believed he needed it.

Giuliani is currently under criminal investigation for the scheme he apparently helped facilitate in the Ukraine, where Trump withheld military aid in the fight against Russia while demanding their leaders investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee.
