At yesterday's White House press conference, spokesman Jay Carney said the President would not comment about the murders committed by Kermit Gosnell because his trial is ongoing. Despite the spurious response, the President has made his position quite clear on the issue of infanticide: he supports it.
Infanticide is defined as the killing of infants within the first twenty-four hours of a child's birth.
Here are just a few examples as to why the President of the United States supports infanticide: more >>
Republicans have been so busy attacking each other lately that little attention is being paid to the antics of the left. The far left activists, including the Occupy movement and Anonymous, have been quite busy.
The Occupiers are helping fast food workers strike for higher wages and a union. Their targets include Wendy's and Burger King in New York City. If they really wanted to help those workers, they would encourage them to attend college and find higher paying jobs. The founder of the Occupy movement, Adbusters, is organizing Occupiers to protest Goldman Sachs banks around the world. They would be better off targeting the politicians who created the arbitrary laws that banks must operate inside of; running one bank out of business won't change the status quo.
Anonymous, the shadowy, unorganized group of hackers and anarchists has been threatening vigilante justice in sexual assault cases. One of the main problems with this tactic was seen in the case of Amanda Todd. The teenager committed suicide after relentless cyber bullying. Anonymous outed Kody Maxson as her attacker. It was reported later that he was the wrong man. By then he had received over 50 death threats. This month, Anonymous is demanding that police reopen a closed investigation into four young men who allegedly raped 17-year old Rehtaeh Parsons and bullied her for two years. She committed suicide in early April. Anonymous threatened to release the minors' names if the case wasn't reopened, and coincidentally the police have now reopened the case. Parsons' mother is concerned and says her daughter would not have wanted more harm to come to anyone. more >>
The Consultation Chamber in the North Cairo Court postponed the lawsuit filed against Ahmed Mahmoud Abdallah, a controversial entertainer more commonly known as Abu Islam, for contempt of Christianity to May 20, so that related documents can be submitted and processed.
Sheikh Abu Islam previously burned a Bible and called for people to urinate on it during a demonstration of Salafis and Islamic groups in front of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to protest the anti-Islam film, The Innocence of Muslims, which was released in the summer of 2012.
Abu Islam mocked the Christian faith and Jesus Christ on Al-Ummah [The Nation] TV channel, which he owns. He also infamously claimed that girls who demonstrate in Tahrir Square are Christians who want to be harassed by protesters. more >>
Outraged at the lack of media coverage of the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, pro-life groups are organizing a "TweetFest" Friday from noon to midnight to bring attention to the trial and the media's lack of coverage.
Mass murder, particularly the mass murder of infants, typically receives much attention from the press. Testimony from witnesses in the trial has also been full of sensational, gruesome details that newsrooms typically yearn for. "If it bleeds, it leads," the motto goes. The national media, though, has barely mentioned the story.
There have been no mentions of the Gosnell trial since it began on NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, or PBS Newshour. CNN and National Public Radio have each mentioned it once. Exceptions to this media blackout are the more conservative Fox News and local media in Philadelphia, where the trial is taking place. The Philadelphia Enquirer has run hundreds of articles about the trial. more >>
An online petition at a White House website in support of a homeschooling family from Germany seeking asylum in America has passed the 100,000 benchmark in signatures.
The petition, which was posted on March 19 and created on behalf of the Romeike family, has garnered over 104,000 signatures as of Wednesday morning.
"The Romeikes, a homeschooling family represented by HSLDA, were granted asylum in 2010 because Germany persecutes homeschoolers with fines, criminal prosecution, and forcible removal of children from their families," reads the petition. more >>
The upper house of the Oklahoma Legislature passed a bill that would prevent the use of religious or foreign laws in American courts.
House Bill 1060, considered by some to be an "anti-Sharia" bill, passed the Oklahoma Senate Monday in a vote of 40 yeas to 3 nays. Due to an amendment being added, it awaits the approval of the bill's author before it can go to the governor.
"Any court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency ruling or decision shall violate the public policy of this state and be void and unenforceable if the court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency bases its rulings or decisions in the matter at issue in whole or in part on foreign law that would not grant the parties affected by the ruling or decision the same fundamental liberties, rights, and privileges granted under the U.S. and Oklahoma Constitutions," reads HB 1552. more >>
