The biggest crowds ever for the annual March for Life protest are expected to hit Washington January 25 as hundreds of thousands attend the 40th anniversary rally to protest the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, according to organizers. The march, expected to attract tens of thousands more than the record 400,000 two years ago, could rival President Obama´s Inauguration Day crowd, propelled by the growing youth support of efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade, which the president has embraced with open arms. Obama drew 1.8 million in 2009. Just 600,000 are expected January 21st.
Comments: Now that is a beautiful thing! The crowds for the Won´s inauguration may be smaller, but we´re still stuck with that malignant narcissist for the next four years. How depressing.
The news media figured out many years ago that they could ignore this march and the great numbers attending and it would be like it never happened to the rest of the nation. The msm motto is "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, there is no sound." Conversely, if 40 people show for O´s re-coronation, the numbers would be inflated to thousands and the coverage of the royal family would be non-stop.
If the media covers it at all, they will vastly inflate the pro-abortion on demand counter demonstrators. During 2000´s long count a friend showed up at a "Sore Loserman" rally outside CNN in Atlanta. There were 50 of them and 3 pro Gore demonstrators. She sent me her pics and the screen caps from CNN´s website. CNN placed the three Gore people in front, angled it so you couldn´t read the signs in the background and presented it as a more people for Gore!

I bet ya $5 bucks the honey boo boo´s don´t know anything about this event. Like I have said before, non-reported a story, is as bad as false reporting.
Oh, another thought, I wonder if any military folks plan to march in full uniform during this?? Would be interesting to see if they experience any flak, considering the DoD had NO problem with military marching in that gay parade thingy last year....
Thanks #4 and #5. We have entered an age of super propaganda..spread mostly by people with strong partisan views, who are trying to shape public opinion by managing news. Bad times coming from shortsighted journaists and sundry cowards..
Just a warning to anyone that is going to show up on Jan 25. One of the ways that the government is slowing down the rallies in DC is by not allowing the organizers to provide port-o-potties. Take precautions.
The number of young people attending the MFL is amazing to see. I used to pull my daughter out of school to attend. Her Catholic school had no problem with it and some years I took several of her classmates as well. She carried a sign that read, "I´m adopted. Both my moms chose life". Lots of kids wear tee shirts that say, "I survived Roe v Wade". If you can go, please do. Especially this year - it will help to lift you out of your post election funk.
#20, so did a lot of Conservatives... Heard a Pastor preach back in October, "Makes no difference who we vote for, God is Sovereign." You can be sure I called him and spoke to him, prayerfully... Sadly... He would not budge...
My Pastor, John MacArthur, LA, had several strong messages before the election... "It is not politics, it is Biblical."
Speaking of Pastors, ours in East Hampton wrote a diatribe against the NRA and lawful gun owners in the bulletin two weeks ago. When I got the latest Susan B. Anthony announcement about the number of abortions that Planned Parenthood performed in 2011, the number was 334,000, I forwarded that email to the pastor and our Bishop and said I hoped to see a similar message in the bulletin excoriating the abortion industry, parishioners that support abortion and president Obama. I told the Bishop I expected to see a similar letter from him. Wanna take bets on whether that will happen? Talk about hypocrisy. It starts with left wing priests and Bishops.
we uld be inauurating romney. The Roman catholic carinal dolan and other cards wre wringing hands and criticizing the AB and Contraceptive rx inthe bill. But I listened very carefully for "Please vote GOP just this once" Nothing doing. "Please consider voting for Romney" Nope. Neversaid or ever reported and it would have been I think as a real break. No, The roman Catholics are Donks through-and-through no matter what. RC´s vote democrat. So for matters of faith and doctrine? e-h-h-h! The RC´s are dems first. So The 23-30 million votes went to Obama.
If #23 could have popped into my Catholic Parish´s parking lot last fall, he would have seen loads of Romney bumper stickers and not one single 0bama sticker. Living less than 50 miles from DC we also send several bus loads of parishioners to the MFL every year. Stop painting all Catholics with a broad brush.
...I will not receive Communion from a person whose is holding the Body of Christ and voted with those same hands for obama... so dont paint all RC with the same brush.. as for not hearing a priest say..dont vote for obama..not going to happen...but the priest could and we did hear this at Mass...that abortion is a MORAL ISSUE and can be talked about from the pulpit
I have been to the MFL and was totally blown away with the young people..they are our hope...God Bless Them...
Wow. Am SO encouraged by this article... and also by this Thread. You guys rock!! Mega kudos to #17 & her daughter + friends. Hope others pick up her ideas.
Be sure to read the article. Example: "One critical sign of how big the march will be: Hotels pre-booked for participants sold out a month ago while many Washington hotels report lukewarm interest for rooms during the Inauguration. In 2009, hotels sold out months in advance as an excited nation readied to welcome the first black president."
How about people attending from across the U.S., first contact their hometown newspaper, & TV/radio shows, and get a press pass to cover the march with photos & a personal viewpoint?
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
