The following comes from an April 5 Los Angeles Times article by Paige St. John:
Agents from state Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris’ office searched the apartment of David Daleiden, the antiabortion activist whose controversial hidden camera videos last summer accused Planned Parenthood doctors of selling fetal tissue.
The Tuesday afternoon search was announced by Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress, which posted a protest on its Facebook page.
The organization said Harris’ officers seized video files from Daleiden’s apartment as well as personal information. In the post, Daleiden said his “First Amendment work product” was taken, a reference to his claim that he and his work are protected as an “undercover journalist.”
Daleiden characterized Tuesday’s search as “an attack on citizen journalism.”
“This is no surprise — Planned Parenthood’s bought-and-paid-for AG has steadfastly refused to enforce the laws against the baby body parts traffickers in our state, or even investigate them,” he said.
“His actions are not without consequences,” Vicki Saporta, the CEO of the National Abortion Federation, said in a prepared statement. The group was one of the targets of Daleiden’s undercover taping.
Harris, who is running for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate, recently faced increasing criticism for taking no public action. That pressure coincided with Planned Parenthood’s own civil lawsuit in federal court accusing Daleiden of fraud and invasion of privacy.
The corruption of this state is thorough. I wonder why the scores of investigative journalists, as well as millions of illegal aliens with falsified IDs, are not being raided.
One hopes that — this is not specific legal advice — Mr. Daleiden immediately seeks legal counsel and moves forward on reasonably obvious remedies. Of course, there is no surprise here: CA, and Ms. Harris (but she is surely not alone) reflect versions of American fascists, a trend that is starting and is currently in a form of gestation. Yes, we are closing up as a free society. Soon such raids will be commonplace. And, yes, Mr. Daleiden needs to make a political, as well as a legal, statement with his response to his raid by the CA Gestapo. Dear Readers, Planned Parenthood is seen as more sacramental than any Catholic, or Christian, voice. The Constitution matters only to such, and not the outcast.
As usual there seem to be at least two sides to this story. One may wish to take five minutes to follow the link at the top of the CCD article to the Times article for the other side.
Yes, the side of good and the side of evil. Choose wisely!
Great answer, Brian.
State officials like Kamala Harris are immoral, Godless liberals, with no moral conscience! And yet, Californians can help in this situation, by their votes, during the next election! We so desperately need good, decent, morally-trustworthy candidates, to choose from, to elect to all of these state and local political offices! The Church desperately needs to do her job, too, by a strong support, worldwide, of the Catholic Faith, and strong catechesis and strong liturgy, to help develop strong, morally-excellent Catholics, to make a good Nation! Many could be excellent future secular leaders, if the Church would prepare them!
The video of that “47 Percent” remark that helped sink Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign was also said to be illegally obtained, but I don’t see anybody going after him.
Kamala Harris persecuting the main voice defending unborn persons – in Hillary’s words – gives a bad name to her totalitarian Party. Democrats have no mercy.
I hope Mr. Dalaiden had copies of critical evidence stashed elsewhere.
I do, too. Hopefully some of his lawyers had copies, and if they are smart, they will not tell the press who has them.

“The LGBT juggernaut threatens the very existence of our entire human rights framework
Conflicts between freedom of conscience and LGBT policies (particularly same-sex marriage and sexual-orientation nondiscrimination mandates) have grown rapidly and now threaten to undermine the status of freedom of conscience…
Basing new “human rights” on these grounds will open the door to an infinite variety of demands and problems.
Where conflicts have arisen, LGBT activists have sought to subordinate freedom of conscience to LGBT policies—a trend that endangers the universal human rights system itself.
Yes, I agree, in the same way that requiring lunch counters to not be segregated by race threatens the freedom of conscience and endangers the universal human rights system itself. If we can require a racist to seat a black customer against his conscience, what is the world coming to!!
Difference YFC,,, having dark skin pigmentation is not a sin, gay sex is and error has no rights,, there is no comparison…never will be
Race is innate, sexual preference confusion is not. Nice try though.
I want to assure you Ronnie that I am not confused about my sexual orientation, that it is not anpreference, and that it is quite innate for me and most by and bisexual people, as the Catechism clearly mplies.
YFC I repeat error has NO RIGHTS!!!!!
Canisus – You know better than to feed the Paid ‘anonymous’ Trolls here, it only makes their masters happy to hire more of that ilk.
The classic Alinskyite scam is to use bogus analogies to claim that which is, isn’t – or vice versa, depending on which part of the Gaystapo Alliance (the show of GILBERT solidarity is a media fraud – they loathe each other) – demand pandering at that moment.
The Script =
People with good eyesight get in to car wrecks – Hence the State should license the Blind to Drive, as they can Also wreck cars equally well.
Anyone who disagrees has “Ism-Obia” and hates blind people.
When the ‘California Lawyer’ magazine bowed low to Queen 2-B Kamala; Judge Quentin Kopp summed the scam succinctly:
“I am accustomed to your glib political correctness, but you merit condemnation for your reprehensible selection of Kamala Harris for your Attorney of the Year award.
She’s a prosecutorial joke, a pandering foe of strong pursuit of persons arrested by the police department, and a faddish officeholder who uses the position for the toothless, “feel-good” pap described for the so-called award.”
Judge Quentin Kopp, San Mateo
perhaps you were under the impression you lived in a free country.
The more things change – the more technology will be there to Enforce Mandatory Pandering to it BAMN – By Any Means Necessary.
Not that Thought Policing is entirely an recent phenomenon, but technology has ‘elevated’ it to a Science and Art. It still remains the Greatest Threat to the Republic – On an Ongoing basis, as Mark Twain observed long ago:
“It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them
SOUNDS LIKE THE KGB to me!!!
THIS IS SO OBVIOUS WHY THIS WAS DONE.
PRAY FOR DAVID AND HIS LAWYERS AND WHILE YOU ARE PRAYING ……
PRAY FOR CALIFORNA AND OUR COUNTRY!!!
This is the most disgusting of the so called ‘planned parenthood’ pursuits, selling of aborted baby parts. Where is the outrage and coverage of this brutal act from within God’s Holy Churches? As I weep for the bodies of these precious babies, I weep for the stone cold silence of Holy Mother Church. How can we hope to change, what we do not even discuss?

A.G. LORETTA LYNCH’S LAW FIRM TIED TO HILLARY CLINTON
It’s well known that if the FBI recommends prosecution in the Hillary Clinton email case, the decision will be put in the hands of Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
But little known is the fact that Lynch was a litigation partner for eight years at a major Washington law firm that served the Clintons…
Hogan & Hartson in Virginia filed a patent trademark request on May 19, 2004, for Denver-based MX Logic Inc., the computer software firm that developed the email encryption system used to manage Clinton’s private email server beginning in…
