    ...news reports were filled with stories concerning the events which occurred in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania involving one Dr. Kermit B. Gosnell. He has been criminally charged for the commission of eight murders. Seven children were killed by this man after they were born. This butcher executed them by utilizing a procedure he referred to as "snipping". He severed their spinal cord with surgical scissors which he inserted into the back of their necks. The eighth charge involved the death of one of the mothers from an apparent overdose of anesthetics administered during one of the executions. ...The truth is what...
  • Roe v Wade - celebrating judicial activism

    01/13/2011 6:29:13 AM PST · by razorsharp · 5 replies
    Today, January 13th, marks the thirty-eighth anniversary of the the Supreme Court's landmark ruling in the case of Roe v. Wade. And despite of the media's attempt to elevate the anniversary date to red-letter status, the country is still sharply divided over the Court's decision. In fact, the number one question looming over any nominee to sit on the Supreme Court, well, any nominee by a Republican administration, is "how will they rule regarding Roe v. Wade?" So, did the Court rule judiciously in regards to the Constitution, or expeditiously in regards to an agenda? Let's go back and take...

    This video, "Peace, Joy, & Choice Meets Caritas, Veritas, & Aequitas," came to us via e-mail from Randall Terry with the following message:"Hello Pro-life Friend. Merry Christmas to you and yours. You may have seen the powerful video of our Pro-life Warriors who recently preached at a "Holiday Party" for child-killers. Well, they did it again at a child-killing fundraiser! This fundraiser was held by a bunch of white people to raise money to kill black and Hispanic babies. It was disgusting. YouTube pulled down the video, so if you didn't get a chance to see it, we re-posted it...

    US women's groups Thursday were bracing for a fight over abortion rights and gender equality with the new conservative majority in Congress. "We now face an anti-choice majority and a new speaker of the House who will threaten to roll back hard-fought progress for women," said Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women (NOW), the largest women's group in the United States. Republicans by Wednesday had picked up 60 seats in the 435-seat House of Representatives, well more than the 39 they needed for a majority. At least 49 of the newcomers to the House are opposed to...
  • Obama on Homosexuality: ‘I Don’t Think It’s a Choice’.

    President Barack Obama declared today that the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on gays in the military “will end and it will end on my watch,” even as his Justice Department was appealing a judge’s ruling that would have allowed homosexuals to serve openly in the military. Speaking at a town hall meeting put on jointly by BET, MTV and Country Music Television, Obama also said a person’s sexuality is not a choice. “I don’t profess to be an expert – this is a lay person’s opinion – but I don’t think it’s a choice,” he said. “People are born...

    Dear John Boehner, Ted Poe, and Members of the incoming 112th Congress: If you do only one thing in your time in Washington, and frankly I hope you do only one thing given your propensity to expand government (other than eradicating Obamacare), it is this: SAVE THE LIGHT BULB. People may not realize it, but one of the first acts of the Democratic Congress in 2007, was to ban the light bulb effective in 2014. Seriously. Now, you may say that this is an exaggeration, and it is a bit, but the incandescent light bulb is the light bulb of...

    On a recent weekday at Annunciation B.V.M. Church in Havertown, a Mass was celebrated to pray for and honor police officers — both those on the front lines and those who have fallen in the line of duty. It was an emotional service, especially given the number of police who have been brutally slain in the last several years. The thought of a lonely and distraught spouse raising young children — including some unborn who never even glimpsed their father — was so heartbreaking as to be unthinkable. The worst part is that there’s no rational way to explain, let...

    Invited to discuss recent Gallup Poll numbers showing only 11 percent of Americans are confident in Congress, Democratic strategist Dick Morris appeared on Fox News Channel's "On The Record with Greta Van Susteren" last Friday and cited that lack of confidence as a reason for states to take more bold action after possible GOP victories in November. The former Clinton-aide suggested that with 37 governor races up for grabs and polls tending towards a significant GOP victory in the works, school choice initiatives will be suggested as a cost-saving measure for states.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – President Barack Obama on Thursday cast upcoming elections as a choice between the party that caused the economic meltdown and the one that's fixing it, seizing on a populist, sharply partisan theme for the critical November midterms. "We don't have to guess how the other party will govern because we're still living with the results from the last time they governed," Obama said at a fundraiser for Missouri Democratic Senate hopeful Robin Carnahan in Kansas City. "It's a choice between falling backward and moving forward." Helped by recent gaffes by Republicans, Obama has arrived at the...

    "In politics, the names of things are more important than what they are." Gustave Le Bon Gustave Le Bon was a French social psychologist whose speciality was the study of crowd psychology. So powerful were his theories that Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini studied his work. These political leaders understood that controlling the psychology of the masses was critical to their acquisition and maintenance of power. Le Bon articulated what most politicians understand instinctively. It's all about the messaging. If we call a horrendous $787 billion dollar spending bill a Stimulus bill, people will be, if not happy, mollified. If...

    Few organizations are as consistently liberal as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), especially when it comes to matters of church and state. The ADL devotes an entire page on its Web site (www.adl.org) to church-state separation and wants the "wall" between the two to remain as high and impenetrable as possible, believing that to lower it would have a negative effect on both. Which makes it remarkable that the executive committee of ADL's Philadelphia chapter has voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution endorsing vouchers that would allow children in underperforming schools in poor neighborhoods to escape to schools that would...

    Yesterday President Obama nominated Elena Kagan to fill the fourth Supreme Court vacancy in less than six years. This nomination presents an opportunity for a teaching moment about what the court does, how it affects the lives of ordinary citizens, and how individual justices make a difference in this enterprise. [snip] One can only hope that Ms. Kagan will go off-script. In a 1995 book review published in the University of Chicago Law Review, she lamented that recent confirmation hearings were nothing but "a vapid and hollow charade." She explained that the Senate should view confirmation hearings "as an opportunity...

    When the darkness and fog cleared on August 29, 1776, the mud soaked trenches were empty. General George Washington had slipped away during the night, living to fight another day. The Battle of Long Island was a clear British victory, but it was a lesson learned in the pursuit of liberty that the American conservative knows, and a lesson that Americans of every race, color and creed should know. So, on August 27, 1776, General Washington arrived in New York, overseeing the construction of new fortifications in Brooklyn Heights. The men found it hard to warm their food or keep...

    (NNPA) Leave it to Rev. Wendell Anthony, president of the Detroit branch of the NAACP, to organize a panel discussion on the provocative topic: “Is Gay the New Black?” The lively and sometimes passionate discussion was held as part of Freedom Weekend activities in Detroit and mirrored a long-running debate around the country among African- Americans and between Blacks and the lesbian and gay community. The question is premised on whether the LBGT community (lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender) is discriminated against in the same manner that African- Americans were prior to passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Acts and,...

    Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) insists that the recently enacted Obamacare law “does not require anyone to purchase health insurance. Republicans who say the law forces people to buy insurance are lying for political gain.” “The law gives people several options,” Schultz pointed out. “First, and of course, most recommended, is that they may buy insurance coverage. A second option is that they may pay a fine. And the third option is that they may go to prison. So, those who maintain that we have eliminated choice are just plain wrong.”

    SOUTHERN ARIZONA – So-called small government “Maverick” and Arizona Senator John McCain wants to give the federal government more power over the regulation of vitamins and supplements by repealing the classification of these products, currently, as “food”. The Dietary Supplement and Safety Act would increase regulation over the availability of many vitamins and supplements available to consumers in the “free market”. “It is big government that has a proven track record of not protecting the public. And it is big government that is seeking to take away yet another individual freedom, the right to choose one’s own treatment,” said JBS.org,...

    TRENTON -- Legislation that would create a permanent statewide public school choice program will go before an Assembly panel this week. The measure would allow parents to move their children to schools located across district lines. The new program would replace a pilot program that expired in 2005, though many participating districts continue to informally honor previously agreed-to student arrangements. The education committee is due to consider the measure Thursday.
