Aborted fetuses incinerated at Oregon waste facility for energy purposes

IncineratedJust as this abortion occurred in the United Kingdom:

In the UK: aborted babies as firewood

Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals

The remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as ‘clinical waste’ by hospitals in Britain with some used in ‘waste to energy’ plants.

And now, in Oregon:

The British Columbia Health Ministry admits that it had shipped the remains of aborted fetuses to an Oregon waste-to-energy facility to produce electricity for residents of the Northwestern state.

In an email to the B.C. Catholic, a local Catholic paper, a Health Ministry official stated that “biomedical waste” had been “transferred” to an Oregon waste-to-energy facility and this so-called waste included “human tissue, such as surgically removed cancerous tissue, amputated limbs, and fetal tissue.”

The official made a point to say that the human materials are handled to follow “health and safety protocols, as well as federal, provincial, and local regulations.”

A bit more of the truth:

A spokeswoman for the Oregon Reuse and Recycling Association told the B.C. Catholic that the facility that is the likely recipient of the aborted fetuses is the Covanta Marion waste-to-energy center, which is located in Brooks, Oregon.

Nothing to see here.  Just a few bodies of newborn infants.  Hope you’re healthy and happy and warm in your homes, Canadians.

Pushback: Michelle Obama unwanted at HS graduation

From the UKDailyMailOnline:

High school senior forms petition with over ONE THOUSAND signatures against Michele Obama speaking at their high school graduation ‘because it would overshadow the students’ big day’

  • Taylor Gifford, 18, started an online petition on Thursday with over 1,200 signatures asking that Michelle Obama not speak at Topeka High School graduation
  • Obama’s speech is tied to the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education outlawing segregation in schools
  • Some students feel that the speech would overshadow student accomplishments and others feel limited seating will be a problem

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend.

A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate.

As with most politicians at public events, they will find a way to make every speech about them or their craven agendas and about no one else.

Let the kids have their day, Mrs Obama, and go the hell away.  Your intrusion is naked, unwanted, presumptive and self-serving.

It’s not all about you.

Easter: Church or Heart?

DSC02229[I wrote this originally in January of 2010.  I find it is equally applicable for me, now, as then. -BZ]

Sunday Reflection: Church Or Heart?

I was listening to a radio program last week — it really doesn’t matter which one — and a caller indicated that religion was a matter of heart. The host indicated the opposite: that it was necessary to hold, yes, your religion in your heart but it was additionally and equally, if not moreso, necessary to hold your religion in a church.

That made me think, for a moment, about my place and how I hold my own personal religious feelings.

I very rarely speak or write about my religion or my beliefs. I’m of the opinion that my relationship with God primarily involves myself and my Lord. Individually, I’m not a “joiner” per se; my life doesn’t quite revolve around the approval of other humans and it never has. I tend to be a loner by nature and my friends — I’m not quite sure that I really have even one very close external friend at this point in my life. I have many acquaintances; that is true. I’d have to say my wife is my best close friend, amongst other roles.

It’s only within the past, say, five years or so that I’ve even taken time to consider my relationship with God. Predominantly, prior, He didn’t even really “factor.” Time and events will do that.

But perhaps my eyes were most recently opened when one of my friends at work, now retired, came back from a European vacation and presented me with an object he’d acquired at the Vatican. It was a cross, pictured above, blessed by Pope John Paul II in May of 2004. Since the moment he gave it to me, I’ve worn it every day. Not because I’m such a pious or sanctified or good man; but instead because it forces me, it reminds me, every morning when I look in the mirror, to remember my place in the grand scheme and to actually try to be a good man.

I don’t belong to a church nor do I attend weekly. But neither did Jesus, per se. Wherever he went, he carried his Father.

Where do you carry your beliefs? Church or heart?

Homeland Security purchases 141K sniper rounds

Joker -- Why So SeriousHomeland Security — that innocent bastion — has solicited for 141 THOUSAND custom sniper rounds for long rifles.

And it has couched that request in as buried a fashion as possible.

I haven’t posted about this because I was conducting background investigations, subterranean.  I have sources.  Period.

I discovered that: despite rising unemployment, and despite an actual record number of people on public assistance via Mr Obama’s foodstamps — the US Government via the Department of Homeland Security’s ICE has placed a solicitation for more sniper ammo.

They are requesting 141,160 rounds of ammunition (7,058 boxes) of Hornady .308 Winchester 168gr A-MAX TAP Ammunition.

Not being immediately familiar with the origin and source of that ammo, and its accuracy, price and availability, I made some personal inquiries.

I found this:

These are match bullets.  They are not common rounds found on the shelves of the typical gun store.

Hornady themselves write:

Features:

Top Performing Hornady Match Bullets

Hornady match rifle ammunition is loaded with the most accurate, consistent match bullets in the world: our sophisticated boattail hollow point match bullets and our technologically advanced A-MAX Match bullets.

Specially Selected Cases

Cases are hand selected based on strict criteria: wall thickness uniformity, internal capacity, case weight and consistent wall concentricity. We get proper bullet seating, consistent charges and pressures, optimal velocity and repeatable accuracy.

AMP™ (Advanced Manufacturing Process) Bullet Jackets

These jackets represent a technological advancement in design, tooling and manufacturing. Developed by Hornady technicians, AMP Bullet Jackets feature near-zero wall thickness variation, resulting in unprecedented concentricity and uniformity throughout the jacket.

Powder

Powder is matched carefully to each specific load for optimal pressure, velocity and consistent accuracy.

Primers

Like the powder, the primers we select are the highest quality available, perfectly matched to the load.

The Activist Post.

And as the Joker asks: “why so serious?”

Because of the .308 round, for one.

And the .416 and the .50 as well.

BZ

P.S.
And to whom shall these bullets be delivered?
