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"...
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.
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.
One aspect of this trial that Ms. Colon does not touch upon is the race of the women, the children and the abortionist. Where is the black community when so quick to scream (at much less outrages) when they perceive unequal treatment, bias, etc?
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.
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.
Communist destroyers, who falsely call themselves, liberals, don´t want the most brutal criminals executed under the law, don´t even want terrorist murderers tortured in water, but they all want live babies murdered and the government to pay. Quality truth tellers like Alicis Colon, are not allowed on TV. Spoiled little Islamist Hussein did not get through his childhood difficulties, like all baby killers with rocky childhood years, he´s taking out his rage with murderous revenge
The White House on Friday criticized as inaccurate a report in POLITICO Magazine claiming that President Barack Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius met just once since the signing of the Affordable Care Act more than three years ago. “The published report that was written by an advocate is based on a ridiculously false premise,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said during a press briefing. “Cabinet secretaries don’t regularly get entered into the White House visitors logs, [though] they come frequently. Kathleen Sebelius comes frequently, and she meets frequently with the president.”
PACHUCA, Mexico — Federal police blocked access Friday to a central Mexico hospital where six people were reported to have been admitted with radiation exposure. An official familiar with the case confirmed Mexican media reports that the six have been admitted to the general hospital in the city of Pachuca and may have been exposed to a stolen source of cobalt-60. The official, who spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media, said only one person was dizzy and vomiting, which are symptoms of radiation poisoning.
One of the patients featured in the TIME cover story I wrote last March--"Bitter Pill: Why Medical Bills Are Killing Us"--was Emilia Gilbert, a school-bus driver. Gilbert was 61 years old in 2008 when she slipped and fell one evening in her backyard in Fairfield, Conn. She was taken to the emergency room at Bridgeport Hospital, where she was treated for some cuts and a broken nose. She left a few hours later with a bill for $9,418, which included $6,538 for CT scans and $239 for a routine blood test. The charges, I found, were based on something called
Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera and the hosts of Fox & Friends openly mocked MSNBC and host Chris Matthews on Friday for his performance during an exclusive interview with President Barack Obama. Rivera called Matthews a “fan” of the president and the hosts dismissed the network as a place that does not specialize in “objective” analysis. Rivera reacted to Matthews’ interview of the president by saying that he has worked with the MSNBC host in the past and likes him personally. “But to pretend that Chris is a journalist, per se, I think that’s sort of artificial,” Rivera observed. “He’s a
For almost a decade now, Chris Matthews has served as a barometer for baby-boom progressives´ attitude toward Barack Obama -- from the "thrill" that went up his leg when he heard the presidential candidate speak in 2008 to the utter disappointment following last October´s debate in Denver. That´s why Matthews´ interview with Obama, which takes place at 2 p.m. today and airs at 7 p.m. on MSNBC, is a crucial one for the president, and for MSNBC. For Obama: The last time the MSNBC vet interviewed Obama, at West Chester University in 2008, it was a love-in, the "thrill" having traveled up
After the 2012 presidential election failed to go their way, Republicans were reminded ad nauseam that Barack Obama had built a winning collection of supporters and that the GOP had not. The Democratic coalition, insisted partisans both inside and outside the media, spelled potential death for the GOP and for the conservative ideology that generally underpins it. The Republican party was just too old, too white, and too male — three terrible things to be, naturally — and it was destined to be buried by demographics. As the year came to a close, and everyone tried his hand at a
It seems the Super Bowl has fallen victim to political correctness. They’ve decided to ban a pro-Second Amendment – and pro-veteran – Super Bowl ad by Daniel Defense, a company that sells guns, detailing a father who declares that he will protect his family. “No one has the right to tell me how to defend them," he says. The banning promoted this epic response from Colion Noir, a football fan, attorney - and NRA News commentator - who destroys the NFL for their hypocrisy. He adds, “This type of selective censorship is really bordering on the line of social lunacy where
Enrollment surge or no enrollment surge, the next Obamacare challenge is a big one: How will the White House make sure all those people with canceled policies get new coverage by Jan. 1? At the rate the signups are going — even with the speedier, newly functioning Obamacare website — the administration has a vast distance to travel before the estimated 4 to 5 million people with canceled policies get new health coverage.
Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has named William J. Bratton his Police Commissioner. In returning to the job he held under Rudolph Giuliani in the nineteen-nineties, Bratton will be in charge of fulfilling one of de Blasio’s most prominent campaign promises: to end the stop-and-frisk tactics that were such a prominent part of Michael Bloomberg’s record as Mayor. But Bratton’s views on stop-and-frisk may be considerably different from those of his new boss. In May of this year, I profiled Shira Scheindlin, the federal judge who presided over the class-action lawsuit that challenged the N.Y.P.D.’s stop-and-frisk policies. In the course of reporting
In my mid-20s, I had a new bride, a plum job on Capitol Hill and, apparently, the beginnings of a cancerous tumor on my right kidney. For 20 or 25 years — the best estimate of my doctors — it accompanied me at birthdays and on holidays and at the delivery of my children. It was quiet and kept to itself. Undiscovered, it would have donned camouflage and killed me in the end. A cancer diagnosis is the experience of about 13?million Americans. Mine came early enough for surgery to make a difference. There were weeks of testing, waiting and
Rush Limbaugh´s radio tirades will have a new home on Los Angeles airwaves next year. KFI-AM (640) is losing the conservative host´s three-hour show, long a fixture on the station, to KTLK-AM (1150), which owner Clear Channel is hoping to pump up as an outlet exclusively dedicated to right-leaning chatter. The company, which also owns KFI, will use Limbaugh´s audience to anchor the new lineup for KTLK, which is being dubbed "The Patriot" and will also feature national shows by Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity.
The current daytime star—and future face of Yahoo News—is taking flak for running an alarmist segment about an HPV vaccine on her talk show. Why Katie’s under fire. Can you trust Katie Couric? For a woman who has hosted news programs on three major television networks, received multiple awards for her reporting, and earned the title “America’s Sweetheart” back in her Today show glory, merely raising the question could be hugely damaging to her career—even more so now as she prepares to take on a high-profile role as the new global anchor of Yahoo News.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has high praise for potential 2016 contenders Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “I think Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever, and he has been with me, at my side, in every tough decision that I’ve made,” Obama told MSNBC in an interview Thursday held at American University. “Hillary, I think, will go down in history as one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve ever had, and helped to transition us away from a deep hole that we were in,
