Defining Political Child Abuse: A Tale of Two Cruz Families Remember 5-year-old Sophie Cruz? Groomed for a year by an outfit called the “Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition,” Soby Michelle Malkin p h i e i s t h e ponytailed Syndicated Columnist poster child for amnesty who was literally propped up in front of the pope during a September visit to Washington, D.C. Latino activists brazenly bragged about training the first-grader before the visit and crafting a letter in her name pleading with the Catholic pontiff to help her rescue President Obama’s executive illegal immigrant amnesty program DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents), which was halted under federal court order on May. In The Washington Post, a Harvard University professor praised the kiddie human shield tactics of the amnesty movement after Sophie’s stunt. “Tactically really, it’s one of those moves that is just brilliant,” Roberto Gonzales, a Harvard University sociologist, told the Post reporter, Janell Ross. Ross marveled at the “power of personal narrative” and noted how the use of a child to deliver a political message had been “deployed to great effect.” Sophie Cruz’s family now works with, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s multi-milliondollar lobbying group, which just two weeks ago featured the girl in a high-profile ad campaign reading a fear-mongering script on “how her family would be ripped apart” if America got serious about deporting illegal border-crossers, visa overstayers, document fraudsters and criminal alien fugitives.

The Washington Post again provided positive coverage of little Sophie Cruz’s latest foray in politics. The article attacked Republicans who support strict immigration enforcement and included a massive photo of the cute child, supplied by her father, coloring a “proimmigration” propaganda picture for amnesty. Now, imagine. Imagine if a conservative political cartoonist had depicted Sophie as an organ grinder monkey on a leash held by her illegal immigrant parents and Mark Zuckerberg. Imagine if a conservative political cartoonist had defended the depiction of Sophie as a chained dancing monkey by commenting that her parents’ use of their daughter in political ads and media students made the child “fair game.” Imagine the front-page, whitehot, and nonstop outrage from Democrats, journalists and the White House that would ensue. Somehow, The Washington Post’s coverage of 5-year-old Sophie Cruz’s manipulation and exploitation by corporate special interests and amnesty theater production managers escaped the attention of Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post editorial cartoonist Ann Telnaes. Instead, Telnaes focused her supposed wrath over political child abuse last week on another Cruz family: GOP presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz’s sin? Including his 4-yearold and 7-year-old daughters, Catherine and Caroline, in a lighthearted Christmas video poking fun at his rivals and playing off his “Green Eggs and Ham” moment on the Senate floor in 2013. In the bizarre world of The Washington Post, employing a 5-year-old to breach Secret Service security for an international headline-grabbing papal photo op and to shill

NHRTL Victorious In Suit Against NH DHHS On Tuesday, December 22, the Strafford County Superior Court ruled that New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services by Jane Cormier should not have Hooksett, NH. delayed releasing documents under a valid “right to know” request from New Hampshire Right to Life. The documents in question related to the licensing of Planned Parenthood’s distribution of the abortion drug, RU-486 and FDA safety protocols required under NH state law. RU-486 is a chemical abortion drug. Mifeprex is used, together with another medication called misoprostol, to end an early pregnancy (within 49 days of the start of a woman’s last menstrual period). Since its approval in September 2000, the Food and

Drug Administration has received reports of serious adverse events, including several deaths, following medical abortion with mifepristone and misoprostol. NHRTL requested PUBLIC documents regarding the following of the FDA protocols here in NH. However,Planned Parenthood and the NH Dept. of Health and Human Services worked together to try to thwart the legitimate Right to Know request from NHRTL. Fortunately, they lost in court and must supply the documentation. But, why is this case important for you to know about? Because this decision was a clear and concise victory for all community organizations, businesses, and individuals who seek transparency and fairness from their government. NH DHHS broke the law when it did not enforce a simple Right to Know request. By doing so, they gave Planned Parenthood the abilSee cormier on 17
