FOUND: The source of Carly Fiorina's fetus claim

FOUND: The source of Carly Fiorina's fetus claim
by Old Redneck

Her story is bullshit of the highest order -- HOWEVER -- there is a tiny element of truth in the story.

Turns out, what she saw was a video of an infant that had been born prematurely at 19 weeks and that did not survive.

Here is the mom who gave birth to the premature baby: https://f2photographybylexi.wordpress.com/2013/06/26/walter-joshua-fretz/
By the mother's own description, the baby lived only a few minutes after birth.
There was no dissection and no one was "harvesting the baby's brain," fetal tissue, or any organs.

The mom by her own admission is in on the scam that has been spreading. Her name is Lexi Oliver Fretz and she is a pro lifer. She has a Facebook page where she admits giving permission to the Center for Medical Progress to use her dead child's photo and while she knows the photo is being used deceptively, she is okay with this because as she puts it, "the reason is to save the lives of the unborn". She also admits to giving Carly Fiorina permission to use her son's photo in her fight for the unborn".


Just found this too

As for the falsified video and images, doctors and OB/GYN collectively confirmed it is not an aborted fetus, rather a premature birth. Below is a quote from a OB/GYN’s blog, doctors findings and how this conclusion was formed:

“I believe it is a premature delivery. I reached that conclusion from 25 years of clinical practice in OB/GYN. I decided to ask nine other OB/GYNs what they thought about the clip, meaning I put a lot more effort into getting the facts than the politicians who voted to defund Planned Parenthood. All nine OB/GYNs agree with me. Several are OB/GYns who have done advanced training in family planning and so are experts in the field.

Walter is helping to fight for the unborn and we are proud to call him our son. We are proud that God entrusted this tiny life to us for such a short time. For such a time as this, Walter was placed on this earth to make a huge impact and God is using Walter to fulfill HIS purpose for HIS glory!

***and for the record Carly Fiorina also has my full permission to use Walter's photos in her fight for the unborn!

Sanders jabs Koch brothers over Walker exit

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a 2016 Democratic presidential hopeful, on Sunday took a jab at the Koch brothers over their support of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who dropped out of the GOP race last week.

Sanders said money controls politics, despite the well-funded Walker's exit from the race.

"I wish the Koch brothers would say, ‘Well, gee, now we can take the $900 million that we planned to spend in this campaign supporting right-wing Republicans… and we’re not going to spend it,’” Sanders said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “But, John, I’m not sure that the Koch brothers learned that lesson.”

Carly Fiorina has announced she is dropping out of the 2016 race.

Oops Caught Again: Carly Fiorina Chairs Organization That Funded Abortion Group

In 2013, a charity whose board is chaired by Carly Fiorina donated $18,022 of goods to an organization that provides financial assistance to women seeking abortions.

Fiorina, the Republican presidential candidate, has served as the chair of Good360 since 2012. The organization facilitates donations from companies to nonprofits by allowing the companies to donate products, and the nonprofits to select the products they need on an online marketplace. Good360 then delivers the products to the nonprofits.

In 2013, the organization donated $18,022 in goods to the Abortion Access Network of Arizona, a member of the National Network of Abortion Funds, according to Good360’s tax form from that year. Fiorina is listed on the form as on the board of the organization.

According to the group’s website, the Abortion Access Network of Arizona “provides financial assistance to people seeking abortions in the state of Arizona,” while the National Network of Abortion Funds calls abortion “a fundamental human right.”


Dick Cheney Blames Bill Clinton For 9/11

Cavuto did bring up the Bush administration’s failure to prevent 9/11. “Jeb Bush has said his brother kept us safe. Democrats quickly countered and said that '9/11 occurred under your brother’s watch.' …What do you think of that?” Cavuto asked.

Cheney had the nerve to deny it and then blame the Clinton administration. “No, it’s not true,” he said. “Anybody who’s spent time there or who was there or who was involved in the history and looked carefully at it – the situation we’d inherited from the Clinton administration was, there hadn’t been any effective response, really, to the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole the year before.”

As Think Progress reported in 2009 http://thinkprogress.org/security/2009/06/01/43295/cheney-blames-clarke/

Cheney has previously tried to duck responsibility for 9/11 by blaming Richard Clarke, the former counterterrorism chief under Presidents Clinton and Bush. But, as Think Progress also revealed, Clarke repeatedly warned the Bush administration about the threat from Al Qaeda and presented an extensive plan to “roll back” the organization. All of which were ignored by the Bush/Cheney administration.

Not surprisingly, Cavuto never mentioned any of that, either.
