The most open presidency in history

When President Obama said that he would have the most open presidency in history, I didn't realize he meant that he would be open about the fact that he would pre-select who would be allowed to ask questions at his first press conference and who would not. I thought by "open" he meant, for example, that even potentially tough reporters would be given a chance to question His Majesty. I just misunderstood. As the President went down his list of pre-selected reporters armed only with softball questions, he was very open about what level of inquiry he would allow.

Glad to see the President make good on his openness promise.

What's Sycloria Williams Upset About?

On January 27, 2009, a lawsuit was filed on behalf of Shanice Denise Osbourne.

In July 2006, Shanice's mother, 18-year-old Sycloria Williams, who was 23 weeks pregnant, went to a Miami abortion clinic for an abortion that was to be performed by Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique. At the clinic, Williams was given Cytotec by the clinic's receptionist to induce labor. However, Renelique was late, and while Williams was waiting for him to arrive, she delivered a live baby girl.

What happened next is, supposedly, shocking.

One of the clinic owners, Belkis Gonzalez, cut the umbilical cord, placed the baby in a plastic biohazard bag, and threw the bag into a trash can. Police later found the baby's remains decomposing in a cardboard box.

Now, everyone is expressing shock and outrage that this would happen.

Tom Brejcha, president of The Thomas More Society, a law firm representing Williams, said, "The baby was just treated as a piece of garbage. People all over the country are just aghast."

Even Joanne Sterner, president of the Broward County chapter of the pro-abortion National Organization for Women expressed disapproval. "It really disturbed me. I know that there are clinics out there like this. And I hope that we can keep (women) from going to these types of clinics."

Why are these people upset by this? I don't see a problem. Sycloria Williams went to this clinic with the intention of having an abortion. If Dr. Renelique had been there on time, she would have had the abortion. Her baby would have been dead. That was her intention.

So Dr. Renelique was late, and the baby was born. Belkis Gonzalez, who didn't have the medical expertise to kill the baby while she was still in her mother's womb, simply killed her after she had been delivered. So what? The baby is now dead, and that's why Miss Williams went to the clinic in the first place. That's why she was waiting for Dr. Renelique. She was waiting for him to come in and kill her baby. When you think about it, this way is probably better. Abortions can be hard on the mother. There can be complications. Once the baby is delivered, however, he or she can be easily killed with almost no risk to the mother.

Miami attorney Tom Pennekamp, also representing Williams, said, "She (Williams) came face to face with a human being, and that changed everything." What? Why did that change anything? Of course this little girl was a human being, but she was also a human being thirty minutes earlier when her mother was waiting for Dr. Renelique to come in and perform the abortion. Just because her mother hadn't come "face to face" with her yet didn't mean she wasn't a human being. Nobody had a problem with killing this baby girl minutes before she emerged from her mother's womb, so what was the problem with killing her minutes after she emerged from her mother's womb? The only difference was her location. One minute she was within her mother's womb; next minute she was outside her mother's womb. So what? She didn't suddenly become something that she wasn't before. Her location changed; that's all. No big deal.

So why is Williams suing Gonzalez, Renelique, and the clinic? She got what she wanted: a dead baby. Okay, maybe should be a little upset with Renelique for being late, but she ought to thank Gonzalez. Williams wanted her baby dead, and Gonzalez made that happen for her. If it hadn't been for Gonzales and the baby had lived, Williams would had to have made the difficult choice of either raising her baby or putting it up for adoption. Now, thanks to Gonzalez, she doesn't have to worry about it. Her baby is dead, and she is relieved of all personal responsibility for the child.

Sycloria Williams ought to be happy with the way things turned out.

America's Vote Coming Home to Roost

Yesterday, Tom Daschle withdrew his nomination for Health and Human Services secretary in the Obama administration, a decision brought about because of the fallout from the revelation that he had only recently paid over $128,000 in back taxes.

Earlier in the day, Nancy Killefer, who had been nominated by Obama to be the government's first chief performance officer, withdrew her nomination because of past tax problems of her own.

Last week, Timothy Geithner was confirmed by the Senate as President Obama’s Treasury secretary, despite the fact that he had failed to pay $42,702 in back taxes until after he had been nominated for the job.

Earlier, New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, whom Obama had nominated to be the Commerce secretary, withdrew his name because of a grand jury investigation into a state contract awarded to his political donors.

Should we be surprised? Were there any signs before the election that Barack Obama’s judgment in choosing associates may not be the best?


Candidate Barack Obama had known his pastor, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, for almost 20 years, yet said that he was unaware that Wright had suggested that the U.S. government had been involved in creating AIDS, that Louis Farrakhan was one of the greatest voices of our time, and that the United States military operations are analogous to terrorism.

Candidate Barack Obama said that he had thought that unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers had been rehabilitated.

Candidate Barack Obama said that he had made a mistake by engaging in any business or personal dealings with Tony Rezko, who has been indicted on charges of fraud, attempted extortion, and money laundering.

Yes, America, we’re getting what we voted for…and we can’t say we didn’t know.
