Philadelphia abortion clinic horror:
We´ve forgotten what
belongs on Page One

USA Today, by Kirsten Powers

Original Article

Posted By:toledo, 4/11/2013 7:39:08 AM

Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven´t heard about these sickening accusations? It´s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell´s former staff, who have been testifying to what they

They haven´t forgotten, they choose to ignore because they worship at the altar of abortion.
They are manipulators of the People, not reporters of the news any longer.
HOW many reporters sat in at the Tracy Anthony trial and gave breathless reports 24/7?
Testimony of more than 30 murders of babies is ignored.
Shameless !

When you read this stuff, it brings tears to your eyes and breaks your heart. How can anyone do such unspeakable things to the most helpless and innocent? Gosnell and his staff are monsters. There is a special place in Hell for people as evil as this. Powers continues to surprise me with her even handedness even though she is a lefty.

No, they haven´t forgotten; they just don´t care. The fact that the "good" doctor is black is not lost on me. The MSM are always claiming that the subjects that they talk about are the ones that Americans demand but that is not true. We have to put up with what they deem newsworthy. Kristen is right. They do not want to disparage abortion no matter how murderous it is. Bald eagle fetuses have more rights than human fetuses.

Kudos to Kirsten for making sure this was written in USA Today. You get the feeling from reading this that if she sticks with it long enough, she´s be "full-blown" pro-life. I´d like to ask her this question: It´s ok to kill a baby in the womb when...? I think she´d have a really hard time answering that.

Now, onto Gosnell...if this same man had walked into a hospital maternity ward and shot and killed 7 babies that had just been born, it´d make national headlines, but because he butchered them in an abortion clinic, our media looks the other way. We don´t have a free press, we have a complicit press...they are complicit in murder, complicit in the decline of our nation, complicit in poverty...you name it, they are the ones actually driving it.

Ask all those “WOMAN’S right to choose” people exactly what their position is on a “BABY’S right to choose.” Then wait for all those people to look you in the eye as they utter, stutter and sputter their answers. Abortion at any stage of a fertilized human egg’s development – depriving that human being of the opportunity to be born and live out his or her life - is nothing short of murder.

What is left unsaid is that Powers could have a different report every day about media black out of stories reflecting badly on liberals or the liberal agenda.

And Powers is regularly a mouthpiece for media corruption simply by supporting the Democrat Party. It´s like someone saying they are against killing Jews but they support Hitler.

The media will not cover this because their usual argument of "it´s a woman´s choice what to do with the live baby is born. They cannot defend it, but will protect it by throwing a media blackout over it.

This is great that USA Today is covering it, and that Kirsten Powers wrote this. Maybe once a verdict is reached, it will become mainstream, but I will not hold my breath.

Please pass this information on to friends and family. The more who learn about this doc and his vile evil medical ways the easier it will be to stop abortions. Don´t wring your hands and turn away because you are sickened by this. Tell everyone you can. If they don´t believe you tell them to "google" Gosnell. You never know. If just one of the people you spoke to gets it, maybe they will pass it on to someone else. Thanks and go forth...

Gosnell is on the extreme but there are few if any even second rate physicians in this largely cash industry that offers lots of opportunities for shady financial dealing. With most of the 1970s liberals who saw this as a cause now retired the odds are the doctor at an abortion clinic is someone who who lacks the skills to function in a setting that requires technical expertise/a good bedside manner.

The media simply refuses to acknowledge this basic reality. They prefer fantasies such as the independent film set in Philly a few years back critics went gaga over for "fairly presenting" both sides of the abortion issue. The clinic was moderns and spotless. The young, female, pretty and articulate African American MD the main character consulted with at the abortion clinic went out of her way to show empathy and concern on the initial consultation. The crisis pregnancy center was not as nice, the technician there an older woman whose appearance and demeanor was working class. And of course the most vocal pro life advocates were men.

We live in a country where our govn wants to steal our retirement money, tax us to death along the way, control our bodies through managed health care, take away our guns, teach socialism and homosexuality in kindergarten, where people like Ashley Judd, Alex Baldwin an Anthony Weiner seriously consider running for elected office an allow the killing of babies in and outside the womb.

We are a sick nation and getting sicker. We are disgusting for letting this happen.

She´s a smart woman and I think she does know right from wrong. I think that if Kirsten Powers gets married and has kids, she´ll move further to the right and eventually become conservative, once the need for approval from her single and/or childless liberal media friends fades in importance and making the future safe for her own children becomes a concern. There is a reason why married women vote Republican and one can find the same transformation in Harry Stein´s book about how he and his wife shifted to the right. Working at Fox and around conservatives I think is also helping her realize that conservatives are not the ogres the left regularly portrays them to be.

Senate panel votes to release
CIA interrogation report
Washington Post, by Greg Miller and Adam Goldman    Original Article
Posted By: toledo- 4/4/2014 7:47:36 AM     Post Reply
The Senate Intelligence Committee voted Thursday to make public a long-awaited report that concludes that the CIA’s use of brutal interrogation measures did not produce valuable intelligence and that the agency repeatedly misled government officials about the severity and success of the program. The decision, opposed by three Republicans on the panel, means that the findings will be sent to the White House and the CIA, putting the agency in the awkward position of having to declassify a document that delivers a scathing verdict on one of the most controversial periods in its history.

Japan recently turned over to the United States enough weapons-grade nuclear material to make dozens of nuclear bombs. This was one of President Barack Obama’s few foreign policy “successes,” as part of his nuclear-disarmament initiative. But his foreign-policy successes may be more dangerous than his “failures.” Back in 2005, Senator Barack Obama urged the Ukrainians to drastically reduce their conventional weapons, including anti-aircraft missiles and tons of ammunition. Ukraine had already rid itself of nuclear missiles, left over from the days when it had been part of the Soviet Union. Would Vladimir Putin have sent Russian troops so boldly into Ukraine

After Travon Martin was killed, President Obama interjected himself into the controversy by saying, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." His critics picked up with that statement and use it to refer to any criminal incident involving black youths. The mainstream media, ever-supportive of Obama, neglects to publicize any such event and only local newspapers are reporting the increasing meaningless and violent attacks against white victims. It may be unfair to equate these miscreants as children of Obama, who does have two lovely daughters, but he has only himself to blame for ignoring the harm his

I don’t get all the claims of radical environmentalism in Noah. I saw it last night. I did not draw out of it the environmentalism. In the movie, Noah took the position that all mankind had corrupted the earth with sin and God intended to wipe them all out. Noah presumed God would wipe him and his family out too once all the animals were saved. Sure, Noah was a vegetarian and the bad guys are meat eaters who do to the earth what Saruman did, but I don’t really see the whacked out radical environmentalism. It’s more thematic of

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) blocked the release of the names of hospitals where 19 veterans died because of delays in medical screenings, leading to calls for transparency from news outlets and a bipartisan group of Capitol Hill lawmakers.Earlier this month, the VA denied a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from Tampa Tribune reporter Howard Altman, who had been investigating the deaths. CNN reported in January that 19 veterans died as a result of delayed gastrointestinal cancer screenings, while another 63 were seriously injured. CNN obtained internal documents from the VA listing the number of “institutional disclosures of adverse

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket.

Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

For Dems, a problem with seniors

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."
