  • Gosnell Movie Hits Hard

    10/09/2018 11:47:55 PM PDT · by karnage · 23 replies
    I went to the red carpet premiere of "Gosnell" tonight, at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills -- within shrieking distance of many bastions of showbiz liberalism: talent agencies, law firms, movie studios. But the film itself was made without the support of the entertainment-industrial complex. In fact, it was financed largely by small donors on social media. It tells the tale, in deadpan policier fashion, of the investigation and trial of Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who initially attracted the attention of law enforcement not because he was killing born-alive infants, but rather because his unlicensed staff members were purchasing...
  • ‘Hero’ Abortionist Sold Drugs, Reused Instruments, Gave Women STDs

    Kermit Gosnell should be infamous as one of the most vile criminals ever to be brought before the American justice system. He was convicted of murdering three babies who were born alive. He performed illegal abortions in hovel-like conditions. He pushed prescription drugs as a side gig — which is how, as The Atlantic reported, he was finally brought down. Yet, just a few years after he began serving a life sentence, almost nobody remembers his name. The makers behind “Gosnell: The Movie” aim to change all that. The film chronicles the investigation and trial of the man they call...

    Social media censorship is here and out in the open, and it has become clear that the major tech companies are working together to shut down and silence members of the free press for political reasons. Of course, this has everything to do with Donald Trump being in office, and whether you support him or not, what is being lost in the effort to depose him will eventually affect everyone. Censorship is not the American way, and while people today may think that the ‘other’ side is dead wrong and shouldn’t be allowed to speak up, it takes a special...

    Full headline: New film ‘Gosnell’ reveals in shocking detail life of multi-million dollar Philly abortionist (Trailer) Mass Murder: As the Left screams for more gun control following incidents of mass shootings, they are hypocritically silent when it comes to another mass murder — Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the killer who ran a multi-million dollar abortion clinic for decades in West Philadelphia. But now a new film is set to hit theaters Oct. 12 that provides all the shocking details surrounding Gosnell’s grotesque ‘practice,’ which included murdering at least seven babies who were born alive — and possibly hundreds more.

    Blow the whistle! Pass the word, and when it comes to fighting the social media- endorsed Democrats, NEVER GIVE UP! Blame the dark now descending on the Internet world on the current Media Blackout on all Conservative voices from now until Midterm elections are over. Until Midterms are over the masses will be kept looking for the light and stumbling in the dark. The lights are going off all over the Internet. The ability of Internet surfers to track down their favorite Conservative news sites, websites and blogs will be like finding the proverbial needle in a hay stack.

    The Union City teachers union chief is under fire after the release of an undercover video that shows her denigrating some of the city's public-school students, suggesting a teacher not report that he hurt a student and referring to a Union City teacher who had sex with a child but was not charged criminally. Conservative group Project Veritas, which has been slammed by the statewide teachers union for "using dishonest and illegal tactics to fabricate false stories," released the 15-minute video on Wednesday morning, one day following the release of a similar video that resulted in the suspension of a...

    New revelations that the FBI uncovered a Russian bribery plot before the Obama administration approved a nuclear deal with Moscow, that involved millions of kickback money to the Clinton Foundation, have been utterly ignored the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening or morning shows, since the story broke early Tuesday. In fact, the network evening shows have only spent only 3 minutes and 1 second on the Clinton Foundation scandal in more than two years. The latest developments in the Russia/Uranium/Clinton scandal were first reported, on Tuesday, by The Hill’s John Solomon and Alison Spann. On Tuesday’s edition of...

    A mysterious series of apparently random killings in Kansas City, mostly committed in isolated spots along walking trails, came to an end when the killer deviated from his pattern with a brazen, execution-style shooting in broad daylight on a city street, according to Jackson County prosecutors. The fifth and final killing came shortly after noon on Aug. 13, when 22-year-old Fredrick Demond Scott allegedly followed a man from a city bus, crept up behind him on the street and shot him in the head — before turning and getting right back on a bus. Like the other four victims Scott...

    Philippine military officials said Wednesday that they've asked social media companies including Facebook to remove a video of militants smashing icons in a Catholic church in a besieged southern city, saying it may be an attempt to fan hatred and turn the conflict into a religious war. Brig. Gen. Restituto Padilla, the military spokesman, also urged netizens not to share the video, which shows militants ripping a picture of Pope Francis, toppling a crucifix, and stomping on and torching religious statues. Militants aligned with the Islamic State group continue to control pockets of territory in Marawi, where they laid siege...

    Obama’s Iran Deal Was Much Worse Than We SuspectedBarack Obama didn’t just undermine our allies with the Iran deal—he undermined his own Justice Department. What if Donald Trump had unilaterally shut down every investigation into Russian espionage, released over 20 suspected Russian spies, struck a deal to get rid of sanctions against Russia—in return for honoring deals that had been signed years before—and then lied to the American people about the entire episode? That’s the Obama Administration’s Iran deal. It might have been the first time the United States has offered extensive concessions to a nation that has continued to...

    The former Federal Election Commission chairwoman Ann M. Ravel says that political speech must be controlled on social media. She presented her remarks in a speech at UC Berkeley, calling for regulations against “fake news.” Speaking at an event called “Future of Democracy,” Ravel argued the proliferation of “fake news” and political advertising on platforms like Facebook influenced elections. She warned that the lack of disclosure by the creators of these campaigns was becoming a huge problem. “We know that there’s a lot of campaigning that’s moved to the internet, whether it’s through fake news or just outright advertising and...

    It wasn't just the EPA. Earlier today, we reported that the Trump administration instituted a media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency and barred staff from awarding any new contracts or grants. Emails sent to EPA staff since President Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday and reviewed by The Associated Press, detailed the specific prohibitions banning press releases, blog updates or posts to the agency's social media accounts. On Monday, the Huffington Post reported that EPA grants had been frozen, with agency employees barred from speaking of the matter. The memo ordering the social media blackout is shown below.(snip)

The NYPD have released video of the moment 64-year-old Patrick Gorman was punched in the head by another man on June 26, just feet from his Queens home. According to investigators, Mr Gorman may have been targeted by the unidentified man after accidentally bumping into a woman he was with.

September 22, 2016 Jack Kerwick An “unarmed” black man, Terence Crutcher, has been fatally shot by police officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  In the wake of this event, “anger mounts.” In North Carolina, on Tuesday night, black thugs—“protesters”—besieged Charlotte’s Finest with rocks, bottles, and traffic cones and shut down the interstate after a black police officer shot and killed another “unarmed” black man, Keith Lamont Scott. In spite of its predictability, or perhaps because of it, the response on the part of black activists...

    Some of House Speaker Paul Ryan's guests for the State of the Union address were sisters from the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic religious order dedicated to caring for the elderly poor. The order is suing the federal government over the HHS Mandate, because the sisters do not want to provide contraception to their employees via their insurance plans. (The group does not qualify as a "religious employer" because they employ and serve people of all faiths.) Naturally, Planned Parenthood took offense to this. Never missing an opportunity, @SteveKingIA & @SpeakerRyan used tonight's #SOTU address to send an...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Over the past 15 months, beleaguered Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane has released a steady stream of messages retrieved from a state email server that show state officials and employees trading pornographic, racist and misogynistic messages. There are jokes about rape and sexual assault, photos mocking African Americans and other minorities, and insults leveled at people because of their weight, their sexual orientation or their religion. At least two state Supreme Court justices and numerous officials in the office of the attorney general have been caught in the scandal that has been dubbed "Porngate." A small sampling: A...

He urged his son to tell his superiors. “My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s...

    Investigators looking into last month’s deadly Amtrak derailment have found “no anomalies” in the tracks, signals or breaking systems of train #188, according to a preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board released Tuesday, underscoring the key outstanding question of their ongoing inquiry: Why did the locomotive speed into a sharp Philadelphia curve at 106 miles an hour? The NTSB said it is continuing its examination of engineer Brandon Bostian’s cell phone records. Bostian, who said he cannot recall the events shortly before the crash, reported to the NTSB that his phone was in a bag at the time...
