A tale of two conspiracies: Planned Parenthood vs Hillary Clinton

You may have heard the grand jury investigating Planned Parenthood regarding the events portrayed in the scandalous baby-parts videos has, as of yesterday, indicted not Planned Parenthood, but the group who recorded the videos. The announcement is a bit short on details.

“Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson announced Monday that Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden was indicted on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs.”

So Daleiden gets in trouble for purchasing the baby parts, but Planned Parenthood suffers no penalty for selling them. Hmmm. Also mentioned in the article is the charge of tampering with “a governmental record” which is not named in the release.

LifeNews.com was diligent enough to mention (back in August of 2015) that one of Planned Parenthood’s board members works in the D.A. office who conducted the investigation. And what response do we hear from abortion supporters about this possibility of a conflict of interest? The allegation of “conspiracy mongering”.

Now whether the presence of the board member really did affect the nature of the investigation remains to be seen. But given the money and power involved in the cushy arrangements between Planned Parenthood and government, it is not at all difficult to see a high likelihood of tampering in this investigation – especially when you consider the nature of the videos.

The videos were analyzed by a group of “experts” commissioned by Planned Parenthood. According to the New York Times:

“A thorough review of these videos in consultation with qualified experts found that they do not present a complete or accurate record of the events they purport to depict,” the analysis of a private research company said.

Rest assured the private company hired by Planned Parenthood to review the videos are “qualified experts” who just happened to reach precisely the conclusion Planned Parenthood wanted. Hmmm, no conflict of interest there either, right?

Contrast this situation with Hillary Clinton’s current email scandal. As of this writing the FBI is supposedly poised to indict her soon. But what do we hear out of leftwing circles? Allegations of tampering with the investigation.

The top Democrat on the House Select Committee on Intelligence suggested Sunday that congressional Republicans are manipulating the inspector general who recently reported about new “top secret” information found on Hillary Clinton’s private email system.

California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff argued that several Republican committee chairmen are investigating Clinton’s use of the private system as secretary of state while “actively campaigning” against her.

“I think the inspector general has to be very careful not to allow himself to be used by one political party against the other in a presidential race,” Schiff told “Fox News Sunday.”

Of course credibility of either conspiracy largely depends on political ideology. Although, it’s not like government investigations have ever been tampered with before.

But these conspiracy theories apparently are not equal. Rest assured we will be told the allegation of conspiracy in the Planned Parenthood investigation is empty. But the allegation of conspiracy to “get Hillary” will of course be treated as legitimate. Because that’s how news media works today – overtly taking sides before all the facts are known, and ignoring the facts that are inconvenient for one side.
