NBC Nightly News seized Tuesday on Jeb Bush’s comments concerning women’s health that “may have ignited a new flashpoint in the race for president” and instead of focusing on the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal, the network gushed over Hillary Clinton “firing back” and “blasting” Bush for his word choice after the Democratic candidate had “been so much on the defensive.”

MSNBC host Chris Matthews kicked off his roundtable segment on Tuesday's Hardball by denouncing Ted Cruz's amusing "machine gun bacon" video for conservative media outlet IJReview.com. Unfortunately for Matthews, no one else on his panel was as stuck in the mud, agreeing among themselves it was a clever viral video to put out in the midst of a crowded primary campaign.

An online magazine has made a terrific case in favor of the right to bear arms. Was it an NRA publication? Nope. Perhaps one of the conservative magazines such as National Review or American Spectator? Nope. The magazine was actually Slate. Slate? Yes, liberal Slate magazine has published an article making one of the strongest cases in favor of the right of citizens to bear arms that I have seen in a long time.
The strong defense of the Second Amendment came in a speculative Slate article about what would have happened if Germany had attempted to invade the United States during World War II. Author John Mixon correctly pointed out that this would have been an incredibly bad idea. Among the reasons he listed was the fact that Germany had no forward bases in North America from which to launch such an invasion. Also the German supply lines would have been ridiculously long and could easily be cut off. On top of that, the Wehrmacht was already tied down battling on the Eastern Front. However, the final reason that Mixon gives for why such an attempted German invasion would have failed miserably is one that is sure to upset liberals:

On Tuesday’s installment of The Rush Limbaugh Show, a caller seemed to stun the eponymous conservative radio host when he explained that his wife “works the operating room at Planned Parenthood” in St. Paul, Minnesota and argued that while it’s “rather hard to believe,” the abortion provider “does a lot of good things, and not just, you know, baby killing and now I guess throwing fetuses into bags.”

As the scandal continues to grow regarding videos that show leaders of Planned Parenthood discussing the sale of organs from aborted babies' bodies, the leader of a group for conservative women sent a letter to Jeff Zucker -- president of the Cable News Network -- to ask that he remove a political contributor from CNN because she also works for the pro-abortion organization.
The missive was written by Penny Young Nance, president of Concerned Women for America, and she called for the liberal cable channel to remove Hilary Rosen, who recently became a crisis communications consultant for Planned Parenthood while remaining a contributor for the liberal cable channel.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota actually pressed Planned Parenthood executive vice president Dawn Laguens on Tuesday's New Day over the controversy surrounding the abortion organization's sale of organs and other tissues from aborted babies. Camerota wondered, "As a result of these [undercover] videos...is there any soul searching that's going on in Planned Parenthood today – not, obviously, about the mission statement of what Planned Parenthood does – but, perhaps, about the method or the means of talking about it?"

In an interview with Hillary Clinton’s communications director Jen Palmieri on Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell fretted over the Democratic front-runner’s recent dive in the polls: “The numbers are grim for Secretary Clinton, whose overall unfavorable rating of 48% is worse than any unfavorable rating we've recorded for Barack Obama during his presidency....What do you think is the cause of these poll numbers?”

A Jorge Ramos interview with self-styled socialist and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was the occasion for Univision’s first broaching of the still-developing scandal of Planned Parenthood’s practices in trafficking the body parts of aborted babies, as revealed in a series of undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress.

A baffled Chris Matthews on Monday night wondered why so many people hate the "moderate" Barack Obama. Matthews cited a new poll finding hostility towards the President. An incredulous Matthews sneered, "Thirty three percent of this country, across the board, is very negative towards Obama, very negative. Personally, they just don't like him." The Hardball anchor speculated, "Now it could be all those reasons. He turned out to be more of an aggressive president, more of a Democratic-advocate president, a black-advocate president." With no sense of self awareness, Matthews insisted, "I think [Obama's] been moderate, myself."

Tuesday morning, Joe Scarborough slammed Elizabeth Warren for her attacks on the opponents of Planned Parenthood. The Morning Joe host objected to the Democratic Massachusetts senator’s contention that defunding the women’s health organization would send women back to the 1950s or 1890s. Scarborough implored Warren to “stop insulting our intelligence.”
The former Florida congressman was angered about the way the conversation about Planned Parenthood has been framed: “It has been set up that way so you can't have this discussion without being against women's health. But you can be against the funding of Planned Parenthood without being against the support of women's health care. Nice try Elizabeth, nice try Elizabeth Warren. Nice try.”

On Tuesday's New Day, CNN's Alisyn Camerota forwarded pro-abortion groups' smear of the Center for Medical Progress, which has been releasing the undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials admitting that they vary its abortion techniques in order to preserved the organs of unborn babies for medial research. During an interview of David Daleiden, Camerota touted that "critics of your organization...say that you're not journalists, as you purport to be on your website, but rather, you're violent extremists."

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker got in trouble again for not falling prey to the lapdog media’s line of questioning.
For some reason the media is really, really interested see if Scott Walker thinks President Obama is a Christian.This past weekend at a fundraiser, Walker was asked yet again if he could confirm Obama was a Christian, and once again, Walker responded:
“I’ve never asked him about that. As someone who is a believer myself, I don’t presume to know someone’s beliefs about whether they follow Christ or not unless I’ve actually talked with them.” “He’s said he is, and I take him at his word,” he added.

How dehumanized have abortion’s most rabid defenders become? This afternoon, abortion apologist Amanda Marcotte, a radical feminist writer for RawStory, made the ultimate in frivolous – not to mention idiotic – analogies. She tweeted: “Hating PPFA is, in this sense, no different that getting mad that someone uses food stamps to buy strawberries.”
This, in the face of the latest video showing Planned Parenthood executives discussing selling aborted baby parts (and PP workers picking through fetal remains like butchers) is almost unimaginable moral obtuseness.
