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.
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.
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!
I haven´t seen much of anything about this trial. I certainly hope he´s on trial for murder. Let´s not push the button further by saying that the fetus is not human even after birth. I would imagine that this trial, if the papers ever wrote about it, would turn a few peoples stomachs.
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.

I´d rather have hot pokers thrust through my eyeballs - - than watch any leftist media show - - so - - - - -
- - can anyone describe the reaction of the undoubtedly leftist Meet The Depressed panelists when Peggy dropped the murder bomb on them? Did anyone have anything to say about it - - or did they all duck under the desk?
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.
Poster #11, in Mass., is exactly what I am talking about: pro choice women putting up their hands in horror----they don´t want to know, and because of this they are, to my mind at least, complicit. And Obama DID vote TWICE not to aid babies born alive.
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!!!
Many here have fallen into the trap of believing Gosnell´s actions are somehow more horrible than those of an ´ordinary´ abortionist. Chopping up a younger baby into pieces and sucking him or her out with a vacuum is no less horrible.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, in a fiery and dramatic television speech broadcast Monday, accused U.S. diplomats of “acts of sabotage” and ordered them to leave the country. The socialist leader said government officials had tailed three U.S. diplomats for months, and authorities had witnessed them tampering with the country’s electric system, NBC reported. They now have 48 hours to get out of Venezuela, he said. “We detected a group of U.S. Embassy officials dedicated to meeting the far-right and to financing and encouraging acts of sabotage against the electrical system and Venezuela’s economy,” Mr. Maduro said in his speech.
Chris Matthews just can’t make up his mind about Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.). After telling MSNBC’s Morning Joe crew last week that the Texas Tea Partier is “a problem for our republic,” Matthews on Tuesday said, “I think Ted Cruz is brilliant. I think the President’s met his match in this guy” (video follows with transcript and commentary): CHRIS MATTHEWS: I think Ted Cruz is brilliant. I think the President’s met his match in this guy. He set this thing up months ago with no budget agreement, therefore no appropriations, therefore the government would be completely exposed this morning at
Starting today, millions in California and nationwide can start signing up for health insurance under the federal Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. But a recent poll conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that just 2 in 8 Americans knew that today was the first day to sign up to buy health insurance from newly created exchanges. The exchanges are state-run marketplaces where consumers can access competing insurance plans from a host of companies. Open enrollment begins today and will last for six months. Covered California is the name of the state´s insurance exchange. Perhaps even worse for
Internal polling conducted by New Jersey senatorial candidate Steve Lonegan’s campaign and obtained by National Review Online shows Newark mayor Cory Booker’s lead slipping to six points, 48 to 42. A Quinnipiac poll released last week showed Booker leading Lonegan by 12 points, and even that poll was considered a positive sign for Lonegan, as previous tallies showed Booker leading by over 20 points. The latest internal numbers for Lonegan also show Booker’s negatives inching up. “Booker is 37-27 net favorable, a major shift from the 42-18 numbers he held two weeks ago,” the memo reads. Nonetheless, the Lonegan pollsters
President Barack Obama warned late Monday afternoon that if the House of Representatives did not agree to a continuing resolution to fund the government after midnight that did not curtail the implementation of Obamacare--and that he would therefore agree to sign--the Statue of Liberty would be "immediately closed." At the same time, Obama conceded that even if the House refused to pass a CR that allowed the administation to move forward with Obamacare, major government programs would continue. Social Security and Medicare, for example, would go on, and U.S. troops would remain on duty.
Kodak may have hit hard times in recent years, but 120 years ago it was the pioneer of home photography. In 1888 it created the Kodak No.1, which gave consumers a chance to capture relaxed scenes which had previously only been taken by professional photographers. These snapshots taken by amateurs give a charming insight into everyday life in the 19th century. It was simple to use - users would simply point in the direction of their subject, although it was a guessing game as there was not a viewfinder yet, reports Gizmodo. They would then wind the film, open the
About 1.4 million active-duty military personnel, some reservists and about 1.3 million civilian federal workers will still report to work during the shutdown and would be entitled to their pay. If the shutdown drags on, their pay could be delayed. It’s likely they would eventually be paid what they’re owed a few days after the government reopens, but that must happen about four days before their next scheduled pay day for the payroll system to issue their checks on time. For another 800,000 civilian employees whose jobs are not exempt from furloughs and would be sent home, Congress must decide whether
Sen. Ted Cruz plans to donate his salary to charity for each day Harry Reid forces a government shutdown. “Elected leaders should not be treated better than the American people, which is precisely why hardworking Americans deserve the same Obamacare exception that President Obama has already granted Members of Congress,” he said in a statement. With just a few hours left on the clock, a government shutdown is looking all but certain. Cruz discussed on the Kudlow Report tonight how Reid’s refusal to compromise has brought the country to this point, and why he plans to donate his salary for
It seems those visiting the Healthcare.gov website have other things in mind than rushing out to enroll in the insurance exchanges. According to the site the most popular question is how to get an exemption from having health coverage. The second most popular is from people who presumably are already in one of the various government-run preexisting condition Insurance plans that will end as of December 31, 2013. Getting ready to enroll in the new health insurance marketplace ranks third. Since the economics of the ACA require the so called young invincibles to sign up for a product many of
House Democrats have registered GOPshutdown.com as they prepare to blame their Republican counterparts for an expected government shutdown. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee purchased the website domain on Monday, according to Web registration records. While the site has yet to be launched, it´s likely to supplement their argument that House Republicans are to blame for Congress´s failure to find agreement on a continuing resolution to fund the government. Democrats believe — and polls indicate — that they stand to gain if the government is shut down starting Tuesday. Some have privately said they see a government shutdown as their best,
Millions of Americans will learn today what President Barack Obama´s landmark healthcare law actually means for them, as the administration opens new insurance marketplaces in 50 states despite the government shutdown. Administration officials emphasized that a federal shutdown would not prevent the federal website for enrolling in health coverage — healthcare.gov — from going live at 7 a.m Central time Tuesday, allowing consumers to begin signing up for plans. Officials in most states that are running their own online insurance marketplaces — including Illinois at GetcoveredIllinois.gov — also are planning to open for business Tuesday. And call centers set up to
Today Republicans won a major victory against the mainstream media. When NBC and CNN announced their plans for pro-Hillary productions, the RNC voted to ban them from presidential primary debates. Conservatives united in calling out their blatant liberal bias and support for Hillary Clinton’s all-but-announced candidacy. Even liberal commentators’ eyes were opened to the network’s partisan actions. After all that pressure and bad publicity, both CNN and NBC announced they were canceling their productions today. The director of the CNN film, in explaining why he canceled the documentary, made it clear that the RNC’s actions made it more difficult to get
Like most members of the Congress that passed it and, undoubtedly, the president of the United States who signed it, I have not read the entirety of the ill-named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Yet there is one aspect concerning that legislation of which I am certain: I will not comply. I will not comply because I am a free citizen of the United States, not a subject of its government. I consider non-compliance with this monstrosity and the tens of thousands of pages of regulations that are to be enforced by an unelected bureaucracy, and that have left a
Perhaps no historical figure is more deeply mired in legend and myth than Jesus of Nazareth. Outside of the Gospels — which are not so much factual accounts of Jesus but arguments about His religious significance — there is almost no trace of this simple Galilean peasant who inspired the world’s largest religion. But there’s enough biblical scholarship about the historical Jesus to raise questions about some of the myths that have formed around Him over the past 2,000 years. 1. Jesus was born in Bethlehem. The first Christians seem to have had little interest in Jesus’s early years. Stories about His
The federal government lost its checkbook at midnight, and it may not find it for days or weeks. As the zero-hour drew closer on Monday, with other avenues exhausted, the White House´s Office of Management and Budget told federal agencies that they ´should now execute plans for an orderly shutdown due to the absence of appropriations.´ House Republican leaders on the Rules Committee had discussed the procedures for both parties to appoint ´conferees´--negotiating representatives--for a joint House-Senate conference committee empowered to hash out a compromise of the budget battle that has consumed Washington for days. The House GOP scrambled all
A meteorologist who has covered weather for the Wall Street Journal tweeted that he has decided not to have children in order to leave a lighter carbon footprint, and is considering having a vasectomy. He also vowed to stop flying after the world´s recent climate-change report made him cry. Eric Holthaus was reacting to the findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which released a report on Friday that found it was ‘extremely likely’ that humans are causing warming trends seen in the last several decades.
Former President Bill Clinton—who was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives for perjury and obstruction of justice and held in contempt of court by U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright for giving “intentionally false” testimony—claimed to his former staffer George Stephanopoulos on ABC News’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday that Sen. Ted Cruz made multiple false statements during his filibuster on the Senate floor last week. “I listened to some of Sen. Cruz’s filibuster on the health-care bill and he just kept making all these claims that just aren’t so and everybody knows they’re not,” Clinton told
Democrats and their media allies have spent the past week labeling Republicans “anarchists,” “fanatics,” “radicals,” and “terrorists” who are wholly to blame for the situation that we are told will soon lead to a government shutdown. (Snip)For three consecutive years — 2010, 2011, and 2012 — the Democrat-controlled Senate did not pass a budget bill because Reid knew that it would be a political liability to do so. Passing a budget that detailed the Democrats’ plans for spending and revenue as official policy would have exposed the “something for nothing” swindle that Reid and his colleagues are perpetrating on the
Saudi women seeking to challenge a de facto ban on driving should realize that this could affect their ovaries and pelvises, Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Luhaydan, a judicial and psychological consultant to the Gulf Psychological Association, told Saudi news website sabq.org. Driving “could have a reverse physiological impact. Physiological science and functional medicine studied this side [and found] that it automatically affects ovaries and rolls up the pelvis. This is why we find for women who continuously drive cars their children are born with clinical disorders of varying degrees,” Sheikh al-Luhaydan said. Saudi female activists have launched an online campaign
The Washington region, home to the largest concentration of federal workers and contractors in the nation, could lose an estimated $200?million a day and could see more than 700,000 jobs take a financial hit if the federal government shuts down Monday night, according to a local economist’s projections. And that’s not counting the blow to tourism, one of the region’s economic mainstays, if the Smithsonian museums, the National Zoo, Civil War battlefields and other federally funded attractions are shuttered, said Stephen Fuller, director of George Mason University’s Center for Regional Analysis. “This is serious,” Fuller said. “The national economy may
Once it was the only day of the week when the family would all sit down together for a meal. But enjoying a Sunday roast dinner is now a thing of the past with just one in 50 Britons tucking in every week, a new study has revealed. Research suggests the traditional family meal is dying out with only two per cent sitting down together, while nearly half of us (43 per cent) eat our dinner on the sofa. Nearly a third (32 per cent) prefer quick meals that take less than 20 minutes to prepare and cook. Researchers found
Suspected Islamic extremists attacked an agricultural college in the dead of night, gunning down dozens of students as they slept in dormitories and torching classrooms, the school´s provost said of an ongoing northeastern Nigeria´s ongoing Islamic uprising. As many as 50 students may have been killed in the assault that began at about 1 a.m. Sunday in rural Gujba, Provost Molima Idi Mato of Yobe State College of Agriculture, told The Associated Press. "They attacked our students while they were sleeping in their hostels, they opened fire at them," he said. He said he could not give an exact death
Come 2014, the government´s damaged brand will reflect poorly on president and his party. So last week, while most of the country was talking about football or fears of a government shutdown, Rasmussen released a poll that should worry everyone -- but especially incumbent Democrats in Congress. According to Rasmussen´s survey, most Americans think the IRS broke the law by targeting Tea Party groups for harassment, but few expect it to be punished. Fifty-three percent think the IRS broke the law by targeting the Tea Party and other conservative groups like the voter-integrity outfit True The Vote; only 24% disagreed.
After Senator Elizabeth Warren spoke at a luncheon in Beverly Hills, Calif., last month, women from the audience swarmed around her, many of them asking the same question: will you run for president? (Snip) Ms. Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said in an interview that she was not interested in seeking the presidency. And despite talk of a draft movement among some activists, it is difficult to imagine her taking on former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. But in seizing on issues animating her party’s base — the influence of big banks, soaring student loan debt and the widening gulf
