The most shocking news
you won´t see in the MSM today

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 4/9/2013 11:49:09 AM

The murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell largely is being ignored by the mainstream media, even in the face of grisly testimony, such as what we heard yesterday. Life News reports: ...a former employee described how she heard a baby scream during a live-birth abortion. Abortion clinic employee Sherry West described an incident which "really freaked (her) out" and related to the jury how she heard a child who was born alive following an abortion scream.

Gosnell was probably on the short list for Obama´s Surgeon General.

One of the most harrowing, disturbing, and just plain sinfully wicked incidents in my recent memory. In the Bible children are recognised as belonging to that group of vulnerable people who deserve particular care and protection – is to offend grievously against the One who has a special regard for the vulnerable. In fact, it is, as Jesus said, better to be plunged heavily weighted into the sea, than to face the justice of the God who is Love, for being cruel to a child. The fires of hell await these servants of Satan.

In the early settlement of the west, hunters were paid a bounty for killing wolves and got paid for the pelt. Now wolves are protected but Utah just started a bounty program for coyotes. You are payed for the pelt. It dawned on me reading this that late-term abortions would cease immediately if the abortionist had to supply the "clump of cells" to be paid.

The courts have already ruled on late term abortions. It is still not a human being or a baby. It is just an unwanted clump of cells that is being detached from a woman´s body and disposed of. Sort of like a cancer. It is the woman´s choice to rid herself of these unwanted cells. So sayeth the almighty courts.

#21, I will assume you are serious rather than a mere provacateur. Your argument may be heartless, but it is an argument nonetheless: Babies in the womb are subhuman and don´t deserve to have their lives or persons shown respect and compassion. If they feel pain and terror, it really isn´t the kind of pain and terror that the rest of us feel. This is the same argument that was made to defend the heartlessness shown to blacks in the old South, the treatment of whom I´m sure you and Dr. Gosnell take great but hypocritical umbrage. Proud and arrogant though you are now, may God have mercy on your soul because, if the history of terrorized innocents is any guide, your memory will be a vile footnote in the story of mankind and on your deathbed, when you face the horror that will come when you realize that it matters what is beyond, may you feel the terrified pain and loneliness that you have wrought.

As I have said over and over again. There is no need to fight these main stream media people, Obama, the liberal kooks, and the Hollywood weirdos Some how, the people in this country have become absolutely oblivious of any freedoms that we have ever had or every will have again. This country is gone. There is NO way to revive it again. Obama is going to see to that- he will never let us be a democracy again. We are a communist, socialist country and no matter what you write or say, that is the way it is and will be forever more. I am a conservative swimming upstream in rushing water, that cannot be slowed or stopped.

From a scientific standpoint, human life begins at conception, doesn´t it? Isn´t unique human DNA formed at that point? Women sometimes justify abortion by saying the fetus (or fertilized egg) is part of her body, just like skin cells or an organ like the appendix. But it really isn´t, is it?

Like pagans of biblical days, who sacrificed children to their god Molech, people sacrifice their unborn children on the altar of convenience. The methods used in olden days aren´t any more terrifying than the methods used today. Back then, babies were burnt alive. Today, spines are snipped, bodies mutilated and sucked out of the womb, chemicals are used to burn unborn children.

There is not a word strong enough to describe this horror!

Everybody is so (I can´t find a words strong enough).....
This is how our public leaders are conditioned.
Media, politicians... It looks like I, as all of us on this thread, live in different world. Media (they use the word, personalities) freaks are feeding us garbage which in normal world makes people vomit. All their fair, balanced, "uncompromised" reporting, all their "dignity" end at the door of editorial meeting.
I had heard the "right" words for over 40 years in former Soviet Union. Now I hear this rotten trash in America. Especially, in the last 10 years.

#21, Most abortion doctors don´t call themselves abortion doctors: they term themselves "sexual and reproductive health specialists" or "women´s health providers" or some such evasive formula. The fact that you put the word "abortion" without much circumlocution, means that you are willing to say what you do.

It is useless to talk about the abortion "philosophy" without talking about the details by which abortion is carried out. Philosophy itself is an attempt to make sense of what one has seen, heard, and done.

Philosophy without "the details" is like bread without flour, yeast and water, or a bicycle without wheels, handlebars and a seat. Such philosophy is an attempt to avoid making contact with embodied reality. Nobody objects to aborting a concept.

I have met people who were accomplices to abortion 20, 30, 40 years ago, but who have now set their faces agains killing. They are ex-abortionists: compassionate, enlightened, repentant. Firmly grounded in reality. May you join them: they are extraordinary people.

There´s hope for you. I hope.

To combat abortion philosophically instead of emotionally, one must start with the pro-abortion philosophy, which has become clear and which was articulated by a woman in an article posted a few weeks ago: Yes it is a baby and no, we don´t care.

We choose to argue by starting with the baby that everyone agrees that it is, and to show what happens when you tear its limbs off and pierce it´s brain and snip its spine. The philosophy we espouse is that the woman´s discomfort in being asked to carry her child to term in NO WAY compares to the pain and terror that child is subjected to.

Not to mention that the baby no longer gets a life to live.

Nothing emotional about that. Simply a comparison.

Making abortion legal does not make it morally right, just like making gay marriage legal does not make it morally right. The moral decay of America is in it´s Stage 4 phase and the end result is the irreversable death of our once free country. It takes courage to change the things we can and now is the time to do something about it. Had enough yet?

The trial really isn´t about murdered born live late term babies it is about the death of one of the females who aborted ( don´t you call them mothers in my presence)
Why should that cause a trial she was merely a late abortion herself.
Such abortionists can and do profit by the infants death because they sell their cells and body parts to so called researchers. The price for a fully developed little one staggering-- up to 4,000 dollars and the females are merely producers of raw material and too dumb to profit too.
Now the federal gov. is determined tax payers will cover the cost.
Do you recall that some of our glorious progressives owned stock in Abortion clinics during Clinton´s rein?

Sorry, #21 but "abortion doctor" is the ultimate contradiction in terms. What you really mean, of course is baby-killer. And by the way, on a side note, I will never understand why posters such as #27 continue visiting conservative websites if they have already given up. Are they just trying to impress us with their "special" insight or allowing us all to wallow in their abject misery? Shouldn´t they all be hiding under the bed waiting for the end?

Abortion in the Liberal mind is equal only to their current definition " Pro-Life". They have sanitized the act of murder with a trite, obfuscation of the definition of the act of murder.
That way they diminish LIFE, and can live within their mental pictures of what is actually killing a human being. A gross rationalization of the truth makes it all right in their world.

Abortion happens before the baby is born. It´s called murder when the baby is alive. The baby is a child but the word "baby" conjures images of a defenseless human being. Adults are supposed to protect these babies, not kill them. What kind of monsters are we becoming. Abortion is very acceptable now and 40 years ago is wasn´t. Who know what will be acceptable in another 40 years. There are too many women who have had abortions who will never be against abortion because what would that make them? It´s surprising how this trial is such a well kept secret.

Short of "Moralizing", I would still insist that things be called what they really are.
The left has a penchant for euphemisms when cornered on a topic.

If it is "Legal" to murder children up until the age that they qualify for a driver´s license then fine.....but in the name of sanity and progress let´s do call it what it is.

Re-naming things is ALWAYS an attempt to flee from reality.

State control is bad enough.

Control by a state run by crazy people is much worse.

"Philosophy" is literally the Love of Wisdom. Philosophers seek to understand, to "save the phenomena".

Abortion is NOT a philosophical issue. That statement is absurd. But it is a moral issue, a fundamentally moral issue.

The foetus, or, translated from the Latin, unborn baby, has Being or IS-ness. "It" is either a human Being with its own unique DNA and all, or it is not.

If you want the "foetus" it is a Baby. If you don´t, it´s a --what? a blob of tissue? a "specimen"?

Abortion is a moral issue, and it is evil. It is also an atrocity committed against women. Those i know who´ve had an abortion suffer from a range of anguish and guilt to deep sadness.

One of the guidelines of liberal propaganda is that if you are going to lie, lie big. Global warming, Obamacare, Romney’s a heartless guy. It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday, Eric Holder offered an alarming new doctrine for the Republic: laws are only suggestions, and the real authority to enforce or not enforce them lies in the hands of the president and his cabinet officers.

America´s school children have had enough and they´re not going to take it anymore. Faced with the meager, unappetizing school lunches required under First Lady Michelle Obama´s nutritional program, students have taken to social media to express their outrage and disgust at what they´re forced to eat for lunch. (snip) More than a million kids nationwide have opted out of the new program - a testament to how truly awful the food being served at our schools has become. Not only that, in the Los Angles school district. it´s been reported that $100,000 worth of food is thrown away every day:

Let’s get one thing straight: the savage mob attack on a white motorist in Detroit by a dozen or more black men on Wednesday was not a “vigilante style” attack. Yet that’s what Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and City Council President Brenda Jones are trying to call it in a joint statement meant to play down the unavoidable racial element. Says their statement: Earlier this week, a traffic accident that injured a young boy, David Harris, escalated into a vicious attack on the driver of the vehicle, Steve Utash, who had done the right thing by stopping to check on the boy.

So blares a poster on exhibit at the taxpayer-funded University of Michigan. So far, I have been able to find no protests from the ACLU or other groups that decry religious expression at venues that belong to governmental authorities. The poster is the work of Heather Ault, and is part of a campaign called “4000 years of choice.” Ms. Ault sounds like real charmer and came to her views through a bitter experience:

Many of the comments at various blogs addressing the forced resignation of Brendan Eich emphasize the fact that Mozilla is a private company and can hire or fire whomever they want for any reason. This is partially true.

“Your father’s coming to see you,” Ann Dunham told her ten-year-old son Barack Obama, Jr. before a month-long Obama Sr. Christmas visit in 1971, as narrated in Dreams from My Father. Obama Sr.´s Hawaii visit, reportedly part of a "recuperation" after a "bad car accident" in Kenya, included "drives" around "the island," "short walks past" "the remodeled hospital where [Barack Jr.] had been born," and "a talk" to Barack Jr.´s fifth-grade class about "wild animals" that "roamed the plains" of Kenya. And, most importantly, Obama Sr.´s Hawaii visit gave credence that Obama Sr. was, in fact, Barack Jr.´s father. But was

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling.

The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that
