Abortion and cherry pies: that’s what Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards does best. According to People magazine, she is the “Wonder Woman” of abortion rights. The interview, posted on People on July 12, called the president of the Planned Parenthood Federation a “passionately committed dynamo” who is “marshaling thousands in the battle” for lots of abortions.


The cover story of the July 3 edition of People magazine carries the theme “100 Reasons to Love America,” and number one is Chip and Joanna Gaines, the stars of the HGTV show Fixer Upper. It’s odd enough that the four-page article never mentions Buzzfeed's attempt to scald them for attending a church opposing same-sex marriage. Then came “99 More Reasons to Love America”…which largely skipped over the liberty-and-justice-for-all part and lunged into the typical liberal messaging,


For two Nigerian girls, tragedy spurred a desire to impact the world for good. Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu—abducted by terrorist group Boko Haram in April 2014—just graduated from Oregon’s Canyonville Christian Academy. From the bright smiles on their faces as they proudly displayed their diplomas, you’d never know the trauma they had overcome to get to that point.


For world-renowned sprinter Sanya Richards-Ross, 2008 was a tumultuous year. Engaged and scheduled to compete in the Summer Olympics, Richards-Ross discovered that she was pregnant one month prior to her race. Wracked with fear and worry, the Christian athlete did the unthinkable—she had an abortion—and immediately regretted the decision.


Jim Carrey defended Kathy Griffin’s photo stunt yesterday at his premiere of the Showtime series, “I’m Dying Up Here.” His advice to her? “Hold up a severed leg as well.”

 

In an article put out by People Magazine, Carrey shrugged off Griffin’s gruesome photo.

 

“I don’t think the joke is the problem,” he said. “It’s not really important.” With a very laid back attitude, he told his audience that all the hype is meaningless, and that no one needed to worry about it. However, his other statements negated this idea, since he wanted Griffin to do more in protest against Trump.

 

People magazine is no stranger to being used to rehabilitate liberals -- even when it sounds hopeless. (Case in point: Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Weiner). In the May 1 People they try to rehabilitate disgraced CBS anchorman Dan Rather, now hailed by liberals as an anti-Trump crusader. Online, the headline oozed: "Inside Dan Rather’s Unexpected Comeback 11 Years After CBS Exit: ‘I Was Aching to Do Something'."


Chelsea Handler's tweet on Monday in reaction to the announcement by Lara and Eric Trump that they are expecting their first child shows that we have yet to reach bottom in anti-Trump meanness and incivility, and that the "leave the family alone" admonishment is so 2016. Serendipitously, given that the left routinely ridicules many of the center-right's supporters and everyday Americans in general as ignoramuses, Handler's tweet also reflects badly on her literacy.


Many people are taking the hashtag #NotMyPresident seriously, believing that any endorsement or recognition of Donald Trump’s new role is an acceptance of the man himself. 


Proving God’s existence is usually a task for experienced apologists. But for 9-year-old William Maillis, it’s the reason he’s currently attending college – and making headlines in the media. 


At Monday night's presidential debate, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton made a big deal of how Republican nominee Donald Trump supposedly treated Alicia Machado after the 1996 Miss Universe winner gained a significant amount of weight during the year she held the title. Mrs. Clinton alleged that Trump called her "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping." Trump denies it, and I could find no news account from that time showing that he used either nickname publicly.

Especially since the Clinton campaign is now actively using Machado to promote Mrs. Clinton's candidacy, even including her "story" in commercials, it's fair game to consider far heftier matters relating to Machado's history. The, uh, weight of the evidence leads one to seriously question, as the media won't, Team Clinton's judgment in associating so closely with Ms. Machado.


As most of the internet knows by now, top Hillary Clinton confidante and lifeline Huma Abedin announced her separation from soon-to-be-ex-husband and former New York Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner following new allegations that Weiner (aka Carlos Danger) is still sexting women despite being caught multiple times and led to his resignation from Congress (thanks to the late Andrew Breitbart).

 


People Magazine is doing its bit for our republic, and a thankless task it must be. Imagine trying to get People readers to telephone their senators or representatives, as Editorial Director Jess Cagle urges in the June 27 issue, to make sure they “know how you feel about their approach our nation’s epidemic of gun violence.”
