The government is your friend, now let us in!

Obama and AG Loretta LynchThe Obama administration is throwing the weight of the federal government against conservative causes, say right-wing activists. 

Using the IRS to target conservative groups - an accusation that was first denied then admitted as a "mistake" - was only the tip of the iceberg.

In the wake of Charlotte, North Carolina voting to protect women and girls in their bathrooms and locker rooms, no fewer than five federal agencies are threatening to withhold federal funds from the state. That includes the Departments of education and transportation.

In the latest incident, California Attorney General Kamala Harris ordered a raid Tuesday on the home of pro-life activist David Deleiden, who has become an arch enemy of abortion supporters after his recordings of Planned Parenthood officials caused an uproar nationwide.  

Harris' state office refused to confirm the raid but a story by The Washington Post suggested it happened because California is looking into "possible criminal activity" by Daleiden and his organization, the Center for Medical Progress.

Daleiden is already facing questionable criminal charges in Texas for altering his drivers license to hide his identity from Planned Parenthood.

The irony of Daleiden being an alleged criminal is that his purpose was to gather evidence that Planned Parenthood is profiting from selling aborted baby organs and body parts to medical researchers, a practice that is a federal crime. Planned Parenthood predictably denied the allegations. 

Dacus, Brad (PJI)Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute says he hardly recognizes what country he lives in any more, describing the "overt public tyranny" in action.

"Whether it's President Obama using the Department of Education to intimidate public schools, because they want to have separate restrooms for boys and girls, or California Attorney General Kamala Harris busting down the door of a journalist for doing his job and investigating Planned Parenthood atrocities," says Dacus.

OneNewsNow has reported on political pressure from the Department of Education to force public schools to recognize "rights" for transgender students or face lawsuits and a loss of federal funding. 

Dalieden

Dacus says he expects as much from liberal attack groups.

"It's one thing for the pro-abortion lobby to be doing their dirty work with regard to legislators and putting pressure," Dacus says. "It's another thing when you have the state attorney general, Kamala Harris, using their public authority and pressure to intimidate."

The search warrant issued for Daleiden's apartment mentioned video footage of two Planned Parenthood officials, Dr. Deb Nucatola and Dr. Mary Gatter, The Washington Times reported

Dr. Nucatola was secretly recorded talking about "less crunchy techniques" for obtaining intact fetal tissue, the Times noted.

Rose

Responding to the Daleiden raid, pro-life activist Lila Rose of Live Action called the raid an "unbelievable travesty of justice."

Rose also points out that Harris has a petition on her U.S. Senate campaign website to collect signatures to defend Planned Parenthood.

"It is very clear, it is very obvious (Harris) is the handyman for Planned Parenthood and the very extreme pro-abortion agenda," says Dacus.
