Sins Of The Fourth Estate (Part II)
Irish Examiner USA, by Alicia Colon

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 5/1/2013 10:25:14 PM

Last week I wrote specifically about the pitiful coverage of the Boston marathon terror attacks and the continual denial by the mainstream media of possible Islamic involvement. In a perverse way this dereliction of journalistic duty while reprehensible is understandable because the press lapdogs of this administration do not want to admit that Obama´s PC national security policies involving Muslims might have contributed to the Boston attack. We know the media is spineless. However its neglect to report on the Gosnell abortion trial shows that they have lost any moral compass they ever had just to cover up Obama's strong support of the abortion industry.

FTA: "What a bunch of hypocrites there are in the mainstream media. I´ve been reading their excuses and apologies for shirking their responsibility in ignoring the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell."

I´m nobody and can spot the lying of their faux liberal excuses about failing to cover this horrendous evil trial, day-after-day as it should be. As unspeakable the acts committed by Kermit Gosnell, silencing yourselves to protect abortion rights, makes all your madness deafening. Fortunately, God hears all, including the heartbeat of each child, until it is stopped intentionally by true monsters amongst US.

The fourth estate has been the fifth column for generations. Their transgressions are simply too gargantuan and too numerous for any of us to wrap our arms around. They´ve lied through their teeth, withheld the truth, reported the party line, and pushed the progressive agenda. That´s why the grey lady is sinking, because the few literate people left in this country just can´t believe what they read or hear from the MSM. What´s to comment on? It´s the same old same old...

"Spineless" is one thing, and almost forgivable. Intentional lies and cover-ups serving Dear Leader is another thing, and not forgivable. And professionally, the rampant corruption in the MSM should lead to a tsunami of indictable offenses. Oh, for the good old days when media was merely "biased" and "spineless"...

The Bible is very relevant explanation of the world today.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)

1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

First you start with weak minded young activists and indoctrinate them with mind numbing progressive thought. Teach them not to think for themselves. Teach them to read the script with a straight face as if it were the truth. Then you provide them with carefully devised script fresh every morning. The unthinking part of the population hears the same story from all sources and so falls under their spell. Inspired by dark forces, good has become evil and evil becomes good. Democrats win the White House where a bumbling street agitator now sits on the throne wasting the treasury and calling for revenge.

One of the founders of NARAL said in order to get the cooperation of the Media the claim was made that 10,000 women annually died from illegal abortions although the actual figure was about 200. Having been born in 1921 I was around during the time that abortion was illegal. As I have said before, if thousands of women were dying I would have noticed it. It just was not happening. I knew women who got abortions. From what they said it was no walk in the park, but I don´t think making it legal has made it any easier.

Here´s your answer Alicia of the Irish Examiner -- they -- the media -- have invested all their mind and soul in electing obama and his socialist views. Part of that "view" includes maintaining the "woman´s" vote for the demorats. After all Mrs. bubba clinton is running for the next opening at the White House in 2016.

Joe Six/pack is paying for that legal beagle´s birth/control pills because the demorats need the young woman´s vote for 2014.....

This trial of the baby murderer was never about justice for the babies -- it was about votes for demorats....

#17. My mother told me access to abortion was comparable to getting good booze during prohibition- or getting good pot today. You had to know somebody who knew the doctor in town who would perform them. "Back Alley" referred to how these services were done after hours for patients who had to come and go via the back door. Those doctors could lose their license and go to jail if they got careless so they were pretty careful. Ironically we have seen that no one today seems to care if the abortionists meet even minimum standards of medical competence.

Abortion is murder. And the women who murder their children, often without the knowledge or consent of the father are guilty of a horrific crime. They should also be put to death. There are too many people in the world and getting rid of anyone who is guilty of murder would help alleviate the problem.

Everything in Liberalville is incremental.

Let women get abortions they then take that as permission to murder live children.

We women are hard-wired to want to protect our young. In order to do an abortion, you don´t just kill the baby, you first kill that part of a normal woman that cares about her baby. The media and popular culture have done a good job of that with a large portion of our population. What you have left when "natural affection" -- to use Timothy´s words -- is a bit of a monster.

The media of our founders were the watchdogs of government (at least in theory). By the 1800´s the media had devolved into over-the-top sensationalism and yellow journalism. Today they are simply spinmeisters for the Democrat party. They spin and omit all in the service of party. If the abortion story or F&F or Benghazi could harm the party it´s omitted or spun. To spin stories they will report on people´s reaction to the non-coverage of a story, like Gosnell, but not the actual facts of the case. Like they cover Sarah Palin. They will report that she gave a speech but not details of what she said. Search engines will then show that they did cover it, albeit dishonestly. They are what they are but we have hope. Our alternative media now serve as "their" watchdogs.

AS I´ve posted in the past, I would have any and all who preform an abortion arrested and tried for 1st degree murder. And the expectant mother also. They both planed the death of a child. Also, any other people and organizations involved with the procedure would be tried as accessories to murder. And the penalties would be very hard.

It is continually said that women should have the right to choose. This line of thinking goes against every thing I believe.

I believe that our bodies don´t belong to us but God. What we do with them should always reflect Him. Beginning to end.

Liberals put themselves beyond God. They think they are smarter than Him or don´t even think He exists. They want you to live for the moment never for Him.

The President has put several issues on the front burner that make me realize that he lives for the moment. Sometimes the President even comes across that he is smarter than God. People should revere Obama because he is the next best thing to God.

Quite frankly, I live my life for God.

Consider, like a game, for the enjoyable purposes of argument, that Diane Sawyer, Tom Brokaw, Brian Williams, Steve Pelley, Anderson Cooper, Stephanopolis, Piers Morgan, Couric, David Letterman, Steve Kroft, Barbara Walters. Charlie Rose and all network vice president news bosses, are all sworn in blood Communists, members of the American Communist Party. Consider, just for the moment, as an exercise, that they are all sworn to mafia-like secrecy to follow the Party Line, to do as much destruction to this great country as their Communist bosses, sponsors and overloads order them to do. The wonderful writer, Alicia Colon calls them “spineless”. It could simply be imagined that they are all brutal, reckless, mafia style destroyers of society. This is just an exercise only, but once they are considered in a terrifying light, as committed, sworn to secrecy Communists, doesn´t every deception, omission, censoring thing they do and say, suddenly make complete sense? The defense rests.

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- A man is facing charges after deputies say he was flying a video camera-equipped drone that hindered the landing of a medical helicopter at an accident scene. Kele Stanley, of Springfield, said he´s been unfairly charged and would have landed it immediately if he knew the medical helicopter was en route. "I´m not an idiot," he said. The hobbyist was flying the $4,000 drone over a crash scene on Saturday morning to shoot photos and video.

The administration’s “smart diplomacy” does not include providing aid to those who fight internal oppression or outside aggression and whose victory potentially would obviate the need for direct U.S. action. Hence, President Obama gave Iran’s Green Revolution the cold shoulder in June 2009. He denied aid, and then dragged his feet on delivering aid to non-jihadi rebels in Syria. Now, it should come as no surprise, he is unwilling to provide Ukraine with military aid or intelligence to defend itself against Russian aggression.

WASHINGTON — The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said. The changes are intended to improve the accuracy of the survey, being conducted this month in interviews with tens of thousands of households around the country. But the new questions are so different that the findings will not be comparable, the officials said. An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire

Very few of the young Americans who carried President Obama to electoral victory in 2008 have chosen to follow him into public service, The New York Times reports on Monday. Which made us wonder who inspired the current Congress to seek office. The answer? Two Republican stalwarts. There are a lot of caveats that should be applied to the Times story, not the least of which is that most candidates for office tend to skew a little older than the 18-year-olds that cast their first votes six years ago. But regardless, Jason Horowitz writes, "[u]nlike John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan,

SYDNEY—An unmanned vehicle was due to begin searching the Indian Ocean seabed for wreckage from Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -2.33% Flight 370 on Monday, as authorities lost hope of detecting any new signals from the missing jet´s black-box flight recorders. Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is leading the multinational search, said a series of "ping" signals detected last week by a U.S. Navy black box detector remains the most promising lead in the search for the plane, which disappeared en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur on March 8.

Anti Semitism and the Blind Jew

Several years ago, I happened to tune into a radio broadcast called "Jewish News and Views," conducted by Shifra Hoffman. The callers were berating Ms. Hoffman for spreading what they called the myth of rampant anti-Semitism. One man said he was tired of hearing about the Holocaust, and that "we Jews ought to stop whining about it." I called in and identified myself as a Christian who was very much aware of widespread but hidden anti-Semitism. I gave her examples of the anti-Semitic remarks I had heard from people in all walks of life who assumed I shared their views because

On New Year’s Eve in 2011, software developer Robin Seggelmann was in front of his computer trying to work out some kinks in the security software most of the Internet uses. That’s when he made a mistake, which led to one of the worst bugs ever in the Internet known as “Heartbleed,” a flaw in the security infrastructure (OpenSSL) for a large swath of the Web. Nowadays, it’s unusual for someone to step up and take responsibility, But Seggelmann, a German developer, did just that.

I never wanted to be a pawn in President Obama’s absurd and irresponsible attempt to mandate, regulate and complicate the American health care system. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a choice. I was a casualty of Mr. Obama’s Big Lie. You know the one: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” By the time my plan vanished, the only individual health insurance plans available had been captured by the tentacles of Obamacare. Signing up for insurance under Obamacare was harder than making sense of Donald Trump’s hair. It took more than 20 attempts over

What is the ´Heartbleed´ bug? Understanding
the major Internet security breakdown

Posted By: Drive- 4/11/2014 8:27:04 AM     Post Reply
NEW YORK — Millions of passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information may be at risk as a result of a major breakdown in Internet security revealed earlier this week. The damage caused by the "Heartbleed" bug is currently unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet´s Web servers and went undetected for more than two years. While it´s conceivable that the flaw was never discovered by hackers, it´s nearly impossible to tell. There isn´t much that people can do to protect themselves until the affected websites implement a fix. Here are answers to some common questions about

Embattled Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has resigned. The President will formally announce the resignation during our show today. He will nominate budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell to replace the controversial HHS Secy. Sebelius has been the face of Healthcare.gov and the botched rollout and has survived withering criticism.. until now. We´ll have analysis plus we´ve put together a panel to discuss what changes we´ve seen to health care as a result of the ACA so far. A House committee voted yesterday to hold former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner in contempt for refusing to answer its questions about

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer.

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
