One Million Moms: Buying Girl Scout Cookies Supports Abortion. (It Doesn’t.)
One Million Moms today posted a warning on their Facebook page, linking to an article that states buying Girl Scout cookies supports Planned Parenthood, and thus, abortion.
“It is that time of year again when GS cookies will be sold,” One Million Moms writes. “Everyone needs to be aware of what the funds raised are actually supporting if you purchase their cookies.”
Note:Â Girl Scouts USAÂ adamantly deniesÂ they have a relationship with Planned Parenthood:
“The Girl Scouts of the USAÂ DOES NOTÂ have a relationship or partnership with Planned Parenthood and does not plan to create one.”
One Million Moms is the low-cost email harvesting arm of the certified anti-gay hate group,Â American Family Association.
The first-person opinion piece, “No Girl Scout Cookies: Group Has Ties to Planned Parenthood,” One Million Moms references, posted at LifeSite News, reads:
“I couldnâ€™t support the Girl Scout cookie sale anymore because Iâ€™d learned too much about the organizersâ€™ agenda, primarily their support for abortion and partnership with Planned Parenthood.”
I remember the Girl Scouts being flaky way back in the early 1970s. When I was a Brownie, I was told to recite some chant and step over a mirror. If I had known the word, I would have called it â€œpagan.â€ Even an unchurched girl of 7 could smell a rat.
Last year, the Girl Scouts decided to admit boys who dress as girls. When asked to admit a cross-dressing 7-year-old boy, a Colorado troop leader demurred, explaining to his mother, with tact and irrefutable logic, that her son couldnâ€™t be a Girl Scout because he has â€œboy parts.â€
The troop leader was chastised by the mom as being insensitive and promptly was overruled by the Girl Scout top brass, who, in a statement said, â€œIf a child identifies as a girl and the childâ€™s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout.â€ Perpetuating this cruel charade on the little boy and forcing little girls to participate in it is â€œinclusivenessâ€ to the Girl Scouts. To others, itâ€™s child abuse.
But it shouldnâ€™t be surprising: The Girl Scouts have a cross-dresser in the front office.
Ten years ago, Girl Scouts media relations officer Joshua Ackley was frontman for the â€œhomopunkâ€ band the Dead Betties. In publicity shots, heâ€™s dressed in womenâ€™s clothing, and in music videos, he appears to be naked and feigning masturbation. The video for â€œHellevatorâ€ portrays a woman being strangled in an elevator shaft while Mr. Ackley flashes a menacing grin.
Today he issues press releases, posts news and views on the Girl Scoutsâ€™ blog, and tries to mollify moms who are concerned about Girl Scout ties with Planned Parenthood. In fact, it was Mr. Ackley who facilitated the Girl Scoutsâ€™ â€œno adults allowedâ€ workshop at the United Nations â€“ the workshop in which the Planned Parenthood sex brochure â€œHealthy, Happy, and Hotâ€ was offered, although part of Mr. Ackleyâ€™s job is to deny it.
It wouldnâ€™t be a surprise if someone like Mr. Ackley was behind the Girl Scoutsâ€™ recent scandal: a guidebook that tells girls to check with the leftist, George Soros-funded Media Matters before believing what they read in the news.
As boys send in their orders for Brownie beanies and tights, the Girl Scouts have declared 2012 to be â€œThe Year of the Girl,â€ announcing that they will be â€œworking to break down societal barriers that prevent girls from leading in their own lives.â€ What barriers? What does â€œleading in their own livesâ€ even mean? Forgive me for thinking it has something to do with sex or abortion.
There’s so much ha-ha in that we won’t bother to unpack it.
And yes, Nancy Pelosi celebrated the Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary last year.
But for your enjoyment, here are a few screenshots of the also ha-ha comments from One Million Moms’ Facebook readers:

Trump Indictment Is a Massive 34 Counts: CNN
When he appears in New York next week, Donald Trump will face a 34-count indictment.
CNN’s John Miller on-air Thursday evening announced, “I am told by my sources that this is 34 counts of falsification of business records, which is probably a lot of charges involving each document, each thing that was submitted, as a separate count.”

Attorney Tristan Snell, who assisted in the successful prosecution of the Trump University case for the New York Attorney General’s Office, responded via Twitter:
“This is WAY more than expected. If this is correct, it could mean that the indictment covers FAR more than the Stormy Daniels hush money — like Karen McDougal hush money or other hush money/catch-and-kill cases.”

“My hunch for a while,” Snell adds, “given [David] Pecker’s involvement and the drawn-out timetable of the indictment, plus the TWENTY interviews of Michael Cohen with the DA, showed that something far larger than Stormy might be in the works.”
“May still be wrong, of course. But 34 counts is a LOT!”
Manhattan District Attorney’s Office Says It Is Coordinating With Trump to ‘Surrender’
Donald Trump’s attorneys were notified Thursday afternoon a Manhattan grand jury had voted to indict him on felony charges related to his alleged hush money payoff of a porn star he reported slept with.
The ex-president’ attorney recently said if indicted Trump would travel to New York to turn himself in.
The Office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has just issued a strongly-worded statement saying it is “coordinating” with Trump’s attorneys for his “surrender.”
“This evening we contacted Mr. Trump’s attorney to coordinate his surrender to the Manhattan D.A.’s Office for arraignment on a Supreme Court indictment, which remains under seal. Guidance will be provided when the arraignment date is selected,” the statement reads.

NBC News explains the process, noting he is expected to be arraigned next week.
“After the indictment, Trump will be arrested and taken into custody. He will likely have a mug shot and fingerprints taken,” NBC reports. “Trump will then appear in court to be arraigned, where he will hear charges and enter a plea. Two sources familiar with the situation told NBC News that the former president is likely to be arraigned next week. Trump will either be jailed or released while pre-trial hearings take place.”
'INDICTED FOR HIS BEHAVIOR'
‘You Can’t Stand on Fifth Avenue and Just Shoot Somebody’: Donald Trump Indicted – Legal Experts Respond
Just past 5:00 PM ET The New York Times broke the news that Donald Trump, the ex-president, had been indicted by a Manhattan grand jury on felony charges.
It is a historic moment.
Legal experts are weighing in to help guide Americans through an event that has never before happened in this country.
Former Watergate prosecutor Nick Ackerman says the fact that this is the first time in U.S. history a president is facing criminal charges is itself a problem.
“I think it would have not been a novel event,” Ackerman said on MSNBC, “if we had done this 49 years ago with Richard Nixon, and he had not been pardoned, this will not be a big event [that] it is today.”

“Everybody should be held accountable,” Ackerman added, citing former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s earlier remarks. Cohen testified repeatedly before the Manhattan grand jury that indicted Trump late Thursday afternoon after a three-hour session.
Ackerman lamented that despite over 30 people being indicted during Watergate, “Richard Nixon was pardoned, he wasn’t held accountable.”
“I think this is very important,” Ackerman continued, “establishing a principle, a line in the sand, that even if you’re the President of the United States, and you commit a crime, you can’t stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and just shoot somebody.”
Ackerman was referring to Trump’s infamous comments during the 2016 election, when he bragged he could “stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
Attorney and civil rights activist Maya Wiley, also on MSNBC, said, “It’s important and sobering that we had somebody who had the highest office of this country who has now ben indicted for his behavior, his acts, in order to win that office, but also faces what are more shoes that will drop, I believe.”
“It is a sobering moment for this country, that we are witnessing this happened to somebody who was entrusted with such power who has now had a jury of his peers, because that is what a grand jury also is, say we believe he had to face the music.”

Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance, now a professor of law, called this a “moment where we would do well to seriously assess who we are as Americans and who we are not as Americans, because we re all so familiar with Donald Trump’s tactics.”
