At some point, left-wing Catholics should just drop the “Catholic” part because, really, why bother? They clearly have more in common with their ideological fellow travelers than their co-religionists. Case in point, the National Catholic Reporter’s assertion that “Climate change!” has become the new rallying cry of the pro-life community.
In a recent editorial, NCR, which calls itself “one of the few independent journalistic outlets for Catholics and others,” announced that, “Climate Change is Church's No. 1 Pro-Life Issue.” The editorial staff warned of the “enormous” problem and urged, “The Catholic church should become a major player in educating the public to the scientific data and in motivating people to act for change.” Strangely enough, the piece didn’t once mention abortion.
It turns out President Obama is a moderate after all – at least in one matter. Remember when he said of abortion, “I don’t want my daughters punished with a baby?” Well, to one U.N. committee, the Roman Catholic religious doctrine against abortion may just be – get this – “torture.”
Here’s a sign the pro-choice side is running out of arguments: praising God as an abortionist.
RH Reality Check, a “reproductive health blog” with strong ties to Planned Parenthood, recently argued that the Bible supports abortion, tweeting “The Bible Is #ProChoice” and “Most anti-choicers claim obedience to the divinely inspired word of God. Does the Bible support that?” on May 6. In the linked article, the staff embedded a video from something called “The Kyle Kulinski Show,” where the host, Kyle Kulinski, revealed that “God actually performs abortions” in the Bible.
American professional boxer Floyd Mayweather just announced on Facebook that he split with fiancée Shantel Jackson because she “killed our twin babies” via abortion. In reaction to his May 1 post, feminist site Jezebel called him “bats**t insane” via columnist Erin Gloria Ryan. She bashed, “Oh my f*****g god what is wrong with you Floyd?” When the couple broke-up earlier this year, entertainment rumors alleged Mayweather cheated on Jackson.
Hat Tip Films, responsible for the Gosnell movie, erected a billboard slamming Kickstarter – a half mile away from Kickstarter’s headquarters in Brooklyn, New York. Erected on April 29th, the sign criticized crowdfunding site Kickstarter for refusing permission to fundraise for the Gosnell project. Picture Below.
ABC, CBS and NBC news should sit down and write George Clooney a thank you note for the timing of his engagement rumor. Oh, the networks weren’t ever going to report the horrific news that an Oregon plant burned aborted babies to fuel homes. But now they can credibly say they were busy with real, important news – the kind about celebrities.
The macabre story from Oregon, coming on the heels of a similar report about the fate of aborted babies in the U.K., might have garnered a mention on a slow news week, but we’re talking about George Clooney! And talk they did: for a total 21 minutes and 52 seconds in just three days. Video below.
Spike Lee and Phelim McAleer are both film-makers who’ve both achieved something unique: each has successfully raised $1.4 million to finance his movie through crowdfunding – a campaign seeking donations from the public. But Spike Lee is famous and established, with a net worth of $40 million. Phelim McAleer isn’t. So it’s a bit odd that the networks took note when Lee (a famous, if not household name) did it, but not when McAleer overcame greater odds to reach that number. Well, it would be odd, except that McAleer is trying to fund a movie about abortionist Kermit Gosnell – America’s “most prolific serial killer,” and the media’s most ignored story.
With 16 days left, the Gosnell movie raised over $1.4 million with 14,500 funders – closing in on the $2.1 million needed to produce the story of abortion Dr. Kermit Gosnell. The Gosnell Movie has beaten Lee's total in a shorter period of time with over twice the number of backers.
Correspondent Tracy Smith traveled to the farmlands north of Kansas City to explore “Heavenly Songs from Classical Music’s Unlikely Rock Stars.” Smith visited the priory of The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, which houses a group of cloistered nuns who recently rose to fame for their voices. Beating even the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the sisters reached number one on the Billboard traditional classical music chart last year, and earned Billboard’s recognition as “classical artists of the year” in 2012 and 2013.
If there’s one comedian who needs a laugh track, it’s Sarah Silverman – and even that might not suffice to drown out the booing.
The 43-year-old comedian Sarah Silverman recently took to social media to share a swastika she had drawn. She announced, “I doodled a bubble-lettered swastika. I shall call it ‘Holocaust High’” and then added in parentheses, “Sorry.” Picture Below.
Midway through the Indiegogo campaign, the Gosnell movie raised $1 million– almost half of the $2.1 million needed to direct and produce the story of America’s “most prolific serial killer.” The project recently made headlines for becoming the most-funded movie ever on “crowdfunding” site Indigogo, with more than 10, 600 contributors.

It might be best to keep the TV off this Easter.
WGN America’s new witch drama “Salem” premieres Easter and travels into 17th century Massachusetts. The show delves into what sparked the town’s notorious witch trials while deciphering who the real witches are – sex, nudity and devil worshipping included. “What if the witches were not the common folk,” John Alden (Shane West) asks in the trailer. “What if the witches were those we’ve entrusted to lead?” Besides West, the show rated for Mature Audiences stars Janet Montgomery and Seth Gabel.
Easter (n): The annual Christian celebration in remembrance of Jesus Christ’s resurrection.
Synonyms: 1. Peeps. 2. fashion. 3. martinis. 4. bonnets. 5. common thread of humanity.
Source: The liberal media.
Dilemma: You’re a thoroughly secularized, liberal TV journalist and the central religious holiday of the Christian faith is coming. You can’t completely ignore it and you can’t show your outright disdain for the faithful and their quaint beliefs. The solution: secularize and trivialize Easter to render it essentially meaningless.
With 34 days left to go, the Gosnell movie raised $500,000 of the $2.1 million needed to share the story of America’s “most prolific serial killer.” Willfully ignored by the news media and frozen out of mainstream Hollywood, the grisly tale of Kermit Gosnell’s crimes will only come to life through “crowdfunding.”
Pop star Lady Gaga’s third album “Artpop” debuted November 2013, but her song “G.U.Y.” caught attention this week for making Billboard's top 100, and the music video is boasting over 30 million views. The video features Hearst Castle, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and (of course) sex – but to really spice things up, Lady Gaga resurrects Jesus, Gandhi and Michael Jackson to create a clone army.
Talk about blatant bias. Although crowdfunded site Kickstarter refused the makers of the new Gosnell movie permission to fundraise, the same company hosted the recent “After Tiller” late-term abortionist documentary.
Filmmaker Phelim McAleer along with wife Ann McElhinney and Magdalena Segieda aimed to raise $2.1 million in 45 days via Kickstarter for their Gosnell project, a scripted drama on based on abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s trial and the grand jury report. When Kickstarter complained about the project’s description of Gosnell, the team turned instead to site Indiegogo. In the past, Kickstarter also made news for hosting the controversial “After Tiller” abortionist documentary. The McAleer team reacted to the irony, telling MRC, “It’s clear Kickstarter is a site for narrow ideas where no diversity of opinion is tolerated."
Nearly a year after the end of the trial, there’s still opposition to telling the Kermit Gosnell story.
Fox News Contributor Kirsten Powers appeared on FNC’s “The Kelly File” April 1 to discuss how Kickstarter, a crowdfunding site, refused independent filmmaker Phelim McAleer and wife Ann McElhinney permission to fundraise for their new project: the Gosnell Movie. Powers explained that while a grand jury report accused abortionist Kermit Gosnell of “killing hundreds of babies,” Kickstarter only allowed McAleer’s Hat Tip Productions an account to fundraise “if they would remove references to babies being stabbed to death” in the project description. As a result, the husband-wife team turned to site Indiegogo to raise money from the public.
He’s America’s “biggest serial killer,” though hardly anyone recognizes his name: Dr. Kermit Gosnell. But an independent filmmaker plans to change that by challenging the media through a grassroots fundraiser.
A campaign headed by filmmaker Phelim McAleer, along with wife Ann McElhinney and Magdalena Segieda, hopes to raise $2.1 million in 45 days to tell the story of Kermit Gosnell – a story well hidden by the media. Their company, Hat Tip Productions, will produce a scripted drama based on the abortionist’s trial and the grand jury report. Having already faced opposition from internet fundraiser Kickstarter, which placed restrictions on describing Gosnell, the team turned to site Indiegogo to ask for support from the public.
Lena Dunham has dun it again: pushing past the limits of controversial in the world of Hollywood.
Lena Dunham, star of the cable series "Girls," recently directed a music video for her boyfriend, "Fun." guitarist and Bleachers singer Jack Antonoff. In the video for the Bleachers' "I Wanna Get Better" single, Antonoff acts as a therapist who encounters a scantily clad patient. She reveals, "My parents gave me this dog so I would get an abortion. He's an abortion dog." Video Below.
Sometimes, all you can say is, “Keep telling yourself that.”
Elle’s Rachael Combe recently honored NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue as one of the “10 Most Powerful Women in D.C.” For Combe’s piece, Hogue told Elle that, “Even though states adopted 53 antichoice measures last year,” Americans “really do live in a pro-choice country.” Fortunately, the polls disagree.
Normally, a “doula” is a woman who assists other women with birth. But Roc Morin, writing for The Atlantic, found a “full-spectrum doula.” “On Being an Abortion Doula” was about Annie Robinson, and explored the “range of emotions involved in helping women terminate pregnancies.” Robinson told Morin that “the grief is celebratory” and that “some of the connections [with women aborting] are really joyful, and funny, and loving.”
To explain her attraction to her work, Robinson detailed how “I’m really interested in loss and grief.” She acknowledged that “Even if the grief is celebratory, it still is grief and it still is loss.” She argued that birth isn’t that much different: “There’s something lost with birth too—loss of pregnancy, loss of the in-utero experience.”
Here's a way to work around the liberal media bias.
The Family Research Council wants to re-create Mike Huckabee's “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” – this time for craft store Hobby Lobby. FRC is encouraging Americans to participate in a #HobbyLobbyDay on March 29th via social media and shopping.
In the case of Hobby Lobby’s fight for religious freedom, what you report is just as important as who you report – at least for the broadcast networks.
The evening news programs lavishly quoted the liberal female Supreme Court justices in their Hobby Lobby reports yesterday. Among ABC, CBS and NBC, the nets recognized only one conservative justice’s opinion: Chief Justice John Roberts.
Yes, Hollywood is dreaming of a Hillary Clinton administration. But for now, they’re settling for installing a female liberal activist as a fictional president.
Oscar and Emmy nominee Alfre Woodard will appear as president in NBC’s new political drama “State of Affairs,” The Hollywood Reporter noted last Friday. The show also stars Katherine Heigl as Charleston "Charlie" Whitney Tucker who serves as a legal briefer to Woodard’s character, President Roberta Payton. The part seems the perfect fit for Woodard, a Democrat activist in real life.
Calling your opponents un-American and agitating for the most extreme pro-abortion position doesn’t just get you the attention of Daily Kos or Democratic Underground. It can get you props from a mainstream women’s magazine.
Is it possible that some mischievous conservative created the Ban Bossy campaign to lampoon liberal hypocrisy (as well as liberal preoccupations)? The new initiative claims that championing young women’s leadership begins with banning the word “bossy.” But while Diane Sawyer was calling it “the powerful movement to change one word,” entertainment TV aired the word “bitch” 50 times last week.
And then there’s Beyoncé. As the campaign launched last week, the singer signed on, and made headlines for announcing, “I’m not bossy. I’m the boss.” Possibly the boss of “bitch.” Beyoncé uses that other B-word nine times on her most recent, self-titled album released last December. Mostly, she uses it to tell other women they’ll never be as good as her. Take a look at her “***Flawless” lyrics for example:
OK, try to follow this: It’s St. Patrick’s Day. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. There’s a silly old saying about “the luck of the Irish.” “Getting lucky” is a term for having sex. So of course NPR had a “Get Lucky” promotion featuring R&B songs about sex. How else would you logically celebrate St. Patrick’s day?
You’d think conservatives Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are outspoken enough without liberal media sources having to lie about their words. But you’d be underestimating the unscrupulous partisanship of political “journalists."
