Peggy Noonan Interrupts Blackout
as Networks Continue to Ignore
Abortionist´s Trial

Newsbusters, by Matthew Balan

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/1/2013 10:18:42 PM

The Big Three networks´ morning and evening newscasts still haven´t covered the murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell as of Monday morning. ABC, CBS, and NBC have maintained their coverage blackout despite the graphic witness testimony and the in-your-face courtroom antics of Dr. Gosnell´s defense attorney during the first two weeks of the proceedings. The Philadelphia physician is charged with murdering seven newborn children at his decrepit abortion facility. This glaring omission by the broadcast networks would have continued, if Peggy Noonan hadn´t provided the first mention of the murder trial on Sunday´s Meet the Press on NBC.

(up)Chuck Todd. Next, he´ll call for the banning of red states entirely.

As for this "doctor" - - he used SCISSORS to cut the spinal cords of these seven babies.

We have warnings on cigarette packs... but no warnings on abortion clinics? Why?

The media don´t know what to do with this story. It runs counter to every bit of nonsense they tell themselves, and us.

Gosnell, a black man, is described as running an abortion mill. However, if what I have read is true and he has been killing babies delivered alive, it may be more accurate to describe him as a serial killer who has been operating unhindered for half a century. But the media can´t have a serial killer who is black, let alone a black serial killer who kills children, let alone one who does it without an "assault weapon," let alone an abortion center that truly is the nighmare of death and torture just as described by pro-lifers.

No matter which way the media try to come at this story, they quickly tumble down the rabbit hole they themselves dug, and find themselves landing in a house of horrors. So they ignore it and wait for it to go away. Lalalalalala.

A perfect example of why the networks and print media are in trouble. Fortunately there are opportunities on the internet for those who prefer real news and not liberal propaganda.

It seems to me the media are strangling themselves- With ever failure to tell the news and the truth, they tighten the noose a bit more. Good- I never watch the liars anyway- I find my own news. Thank God for Matt Drudge and Lucianne!

If the serial murderer gets jail instead of the death penalty, maybe his fellow inmates will meet out his just penalty of death.

That button has already been pushed, #12. Last week a Planned Parenthood official in Florida stated that it should be the mother´s decision whether or not a viable baby who survives an abortion should be allowed to live. And that´s right out of zippy´s playbook. While in the Illinois senate he voted against medical care for abortion survivors because it goes against the original intent of the mother.

Good portion of the liberal women have already HAD abortions.
Talking about it makes them experience remorse for murdering their own kids.
They all bought the early Marxist line that it was a ´choice´, just a blob of ´tissue.´
They hate having to realize it was their baby they murdered.

That´s why they don´t want to talk about it. Half of them are on happy pills so they can exist.

In addition to #3´s comments (spot on) are these additinal thoughts: here in Virginia, the Gov got passed in the legislature a law requiring abortion clinics to be regulated like hospistals or any other medical facility that does surgery. The pro-choice groups screamed and hollered about how this would affect a woman´s right to an abortion. But aren´t these pro abortion groups the sames ones that kekp saying no more back alley abortions; pass Roe so abortions would be rare, legal and safe? No, they didn´t want women going to some guy in an alley and dying but any attempts to regulate their industry now is off limits. I guess to Planned Parenthood and others, there´s no money to be made by the lone operator in the back alley but the likes of "Dr." Gosnell, well, keep those "clinics" open and the money pouring in and the bodies piling up.

#3 is spot on. The only thing I would add is this: Gosnell is a black serial killer, and the majority of his victims were black. His abortion mill was purposely located in a black neighborhood. I saw one video where a black woman said she received 8 abortions there. (She was deeply regretful.) Although the media could care less, good for Peggy for mentioning it on MTP.

What is not being mentioned here is that babies born alive have their spinal cords cut with a scissors! And then, no more baby. THAT is infanticide and just plain illegal!!!!!! Not to mention horrendous. But it is like, in a much more graphic way, the Left objecting to showing pictures of babies in the womb sucking their thumbs and moving........how tacky to show that this is a living creature.

I have many friends who although they consider themselves conservative on most things, are pro abortion because they have bought into the "woman´s right to choose" mantra. It has been so widely accepted, most don´t pay any attention to the truth about it any longer. When I last tried to discuss it, I mentioned that in many cases, babies have been born alive in botched abortions, and were allowed to die from lack of care being provided to them. And that our wonderful delightful president was one of the proponents of that law in Illinois. They had never heard of it and knew nothing of how babies are killed all the time in botched abortions. Yet, let a teen drown a baby in the toilet, and they are arrested for murder.

This travesty needs to be exposed to the uninformed. Wish we had someone that didn´t care more about their own re-election, to do it. I could see Dr Carson taking up this issue and exposing it for what it truly is...murder.

The ugly truth? This "doctor" delivered the babies and waited for them to be born because it was easier & faster (and less messy)to merely kill the babies after delivering them. Pro-abortion advocates never, ever want to see the horrible side of what they have allowed. The blood of those babies is on everyone´s hands who says that abortion is okay and it is not a human that is being killed! How do you feel now? It is NOT a philosophical discussion --- it IS ALL ABOUT LIFE ITSELF.

Just wait until we have gay marriage and people realize the seamier side of that debacle too. Lowering the age of consent to puberty, your mid-teen son "marrying" a 30 year old gay man and not needing your permission, your barely pubescent daughter eloping with with an older woman whether you like it or not, etc. Just wait, it´s coming. Then we will have gone totally down the rabbit hole.

Phony compassion Democrats and their agenda of death. They are so compassionate, they want to be praised for it, but their idea of a victim is the mother punished with a baby, says their criminal mastermind.

While this is killing and murder of the young, the big picture includes the murder of the baby boomer generation. Death panels, made up of these kind of the doctors, are the method of choice to kill off the old. The excuse will be that their every "choice" requires that money be "saved" by their "compassionate" murder of the weak. This is the real purpose of Obamacare.


The low morals president wanted the survivors of abortion to be dead, and he wants the Social security dependents dead. Balances the budget. Be brave old fools, and ask for Obama´s "Reincarnation Package", where you gather with your family, at a nice government resort, and after some legal papers are signed, leaving your inheritance and last wishes, you can enjoy a fabulous weekend, topped off with a heroin speedball, with all the trimmings. Then on to the godless reincarnation, where you can re-emerge as a new creature. Just hope you are good enough to avoid the double jeopardy on the abortion table!!!

This is the future.

Obama: Right to vote ´threatened´ by GOP

President Obama on Friday said that Republicans were behind the biggest threat to voting rights in decades. “The principle of one person, one vote is the single greatest tool we have to redress an unjust status quo. You would think there would not be an argument about this anymore,” said Obama in an address to Rev. Al Sharpton´s National Action Network conference in New York City. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” he added. The president directly blamed Republicans, saying new

ORLAND, Calif.- It was a busload of opportunity: young, low-income, motivated students, destined to become the first in their families to go to college, journeying from the concrete sprawl of Los Angeles to a remote redwood campus 650 miles north. Those dreams shattered for some Thursday in an explosive freeway collision that left 10 dead - students, chaperones and both drivers - and dozens hospitalized. Desperate families awaited word about loved ones Friday, while investigators tried to figure out why a southbound FedEx big rig swerved across the grassy divide of California´s key artery before sideswiping a car and slamming into

President Reagan was holding a meeting in the Cabinet Room on March 25, 1985, when Press Secretary Larry Speakes came over to me, as communications director, with a concern. The White House was about to issue a statement on the killing of Major Arthur Nicholson, a U.S. army officer serving in East Germany. Maj. Nicholson had been shot in cold blood by a Russian soldier. Speakes thought the president´s statement, "This violence was unjustified," was weak. I agreed. We interrupted the president, who reread the statement, then said go ahead with it.

A copy of Barack and Michelle Obama’s tax returns released Friday shows that the first couple gave only .3 percent of their income to their church in 2013. The Obamas made a total of $59,251 in charitable contributions in 2013 — 12.3 percent of their income — but most of the donations went to primarily secular organizations. From their adjusted gross income of $481,098, the president and first lady gave $1,500 to St. John’s Church, an Episcopalian parish near the White House where they occasionally attend services. The rest of their giving went to 31 different charities, including the American Red

Instead of getting to work on my own tax return, I´d rather look at President Barack Obama´s. So the White House did me a favor by releasing the 2013 joint federal income tax return of Barack and Michelle Obama Friday afternoon. Here are some highlights: • The Obamas paid $98,169 in total federal income tax on adjusted gross income of $481,098. That´s an effective tax rate of 20.4 percent. • The Obamas are due a tax refund of $19,108. What should they spend it on? • Besides his salary, Obama reported $104,809 in business income from book sales. That´s down

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.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

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

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

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

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. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. 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. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

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
