Gosnell – America’s worst serial killer exposed in movie kept in wraps for years to hide it from you

Five years and five months ago a West Philadelphia doctor was convicted of murder, and only avoided lethal injection through a plea deal. The press ignored the case – a hot potato – because it focused on a monster, who performed hundreds of illegal late-term abortions, covered up his crimes, and also killed many living babies who briefly survived his sloppy and unsanitary procedures.

Kermit Barron Gosnell

This Friday night, the movie describing his crimes, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer“, will debut on 600-750 screens nationwide. The media, for the most part, will ignore the film.

Some may picket it, but anyone who goes to see it, will be horrified.

The film, produced in 2014, was blocked after Jeffrey Minehart, a judge on the case, sued the filmmakers. Minehart claimed  that the movie (and a book) portrayed him as part of “Philadelphia’s liberal corrupt government.” Continue reading →

Congress votes to destroy Social Security, 233-184

Those April showers have drowned the media this year with reports of a petulant, prosthetic protuberant princess, also know as “What’s Her Name” or “Smarmy Scandals.”

Meanwhile, back in Congress, 233 members – 54% of that angst body – voted to destroy the Social Security system by not allowing the use of its $2.9 trillion in reserves, forcing cuts of up to 24% in coming years.

As a big boy bonus, this bookkeeping manipulation will allow the fiscal twits to proclaim that nearly three trillion dollars has been cut from the National Debt. These reserves come from excess FICA taxes previously paid by Americans to subsidize years where there was a tax collection shortfall.

But like Tiger Woods winning this year’s Masters (tied at 32), it was not to be. The bill – H.J. Res 2 – required a 66% vote to pass. It fell short by 12%, but under House rules this Constitutional Amendment can be brought up over and over again. Continue reading →

Kochs win again as their boy, Marc, short-circuits Trump MAGA with an anti-populist spending bill

President Donald Trump must have been distracted, while rubbing his gold-plated putter, when the Cabinet and the West Wing top birds were being anointed, because only golf daydreaming easily explains:

  • H. R. McMaster, James Mattis, Rick Perry and Wilbur Ross – Bilderberg Group participants.
  • Gary Cohn, Dina Habib Powell and Steven Mnuchin – Goldman Sachs
  • Rex Tillerson – Exxon-Mobil
  • Kenneth I. Juster – Trilateral Commission

These officials are all establishment globalists, and Trump campaigned as a populist nationalist. Each appointee should be considered a slippery swamper, and because of that, some are now out of office or headed that way. Continue reading →

Our schools are safe – networks and politicians panic

In the past 67 years mass shootings of more than 10 persons (including the killer) have claimed 453 lives, some seven per year, averaging one event every other year. Two massacres – Las Vegas (59 killed in 2017), and Orlando (50 killed in 2016) – account for about one quarter of all attacks.

Seven of those mass shootings were in our schools, claiming 131 lives, since 1950.

The U.S. has 139,126 schools, which means that – on average – a single school in a thousand will have a mass shooting death once every 67 years. In short, institutes of learning have always been extremely safe places for Americans.

By comparison, 79 have been shot and killed in Chicago since the beginning of the year. A person is murdered every 18 minutes in that “gun-free” city; someone is shot every 4 minutes on average.

Such facts mean little to politicians who smell votes or media that counts viewers and readers – bad news is good news for the profits of the penny-pinching corporations that run today’s networks and newspapers.

For example, if federal law is changed by the fund-raisers in Congress, a 20-year-old security guard will be too young to buy a rifle in New Hampshire, while the same state’s laws allow her 13-year-old sister to marry. Continue reading →

Grenfell Tower of despair forces inspections that find most similar structures are just as dangerous

Trump ignores own warning about tech swamp snakes; now IBM has more jobs in India than U.S.

IBM’s chief executive, Ginni Rometty was anxious to meet with the newly-elected Donald Trump in December, last year, and she pledged that her tech firm would create 25,000 new American jobs. She also promised that IBM will be investing in the United States by bringing $1 billion to create training programs and opening new offices.

Promises are cheap. But Mr. Trump was quick to praise Rometty, and even included her in the June 19 Tech Summit, pushed by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. A tech council was supposed to be formed at that time, but nothing happened since then.

What did happen is that these companies, virtually all of them, continued to send jobs overseas and/or hire foreign workers on Visa programs to replace American workers.

No better example is IBM. Rometty’s promise to hire 25,000 workers was “clarified” to mean 25,000 workers over the next four years, and the reaction from employees was harsh: Continue reading →

Flight delayed? – blame the very, very rich!

It was a legendary story in our newsroom, retold to new hires as a warning never to antagonize top management.

The company had a private jet, used by about a half dozen top execs, and reports had it that the CEO had called one of his local publishers to meet him at a small airport.

When the subordinate arrived he was fired on the spot for some past infraction and told to find his own way home from the airport without his auto. Then, the CEO was driven away in the company car, previously used by the employee.

Anyone who has stood in line at an airport, or waited for a delayed flight, appreciates the inequality of the very rich flying around the country with instant takeoffs and landings. The CEO story above may not be entirely true, but it reflects the anger Continue reading →

Deep State, bankers, corporations, and politicians combine to “Keep America Just Like It Is Now”

“Everyone is entitled to their opinion.”

National Security Council (NSC) Advisor Herb Ray McMaster apparently disagrees with that adage, and fired staffer Rich Higgins for spilling the beans on the Deep State of corporate cronies, intellectual phonies and political hacks.

Higgins served NSC’s strategic-planning office as director for strategic planning. He was fired on July 21.

The memo, written near the end of May, said the mindset within the White House is inadequate to the threat:

This is not politics as usual but rather political warfare at an unprecedented level that is openly engaged in the direct targeting of a seated president through manipulation of the news cycle. It must be recognized on its own terms so that immediate action can be taken.

Rich Higgins

Earlier this year, Higgins had pushed to declassify documents dealing with radical Islam and Iran, including Presidential Study Directive 11, produced by the Obama administration before the Arab Spring, that outlined unrest throughout the Middle East, according to a report in The Atlantic.

McMaster also recently fired Derek Harvey, senior director for the NSC Middle East strategy. Before removal, Harvey produced a list of NSC holdovers from the Obama Administration and presented it to McMaster, who declined to fire them, the report said.

This past week, McMaster was touted by Sen. John McCain, many mass media pundits, Democrat Party leadership and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Continue reading →

Spies, lies and your lost privacy

Sharyl Attkisson – former CBS investigative reporter, and five-time Emmy winner – has been surveilled, her computer hacked, her career threatened, all because of her exposes of government and political corruption.

Last week she reported on a meeting with “a small group of reliable, formerly high-placed intelligence officials who have dropped a few interesting tidbits on me of late.”

This was her understanding of methods used by the government, based on the discussions:

  • SharylAtkisson_Top2It’s not true that wiretaps and/or electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens can “only” be done with a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) court order.
  • Besides the FISA court, “wiretapping” or electronic surveillance can also be done under Title III authority. The government used this authority, for example, in the Justice Department’s secret Fast and Furious “gunwalking” case.
  • Additionally, U.S. Presidents have the power to issue secret presidential directives that can authorize otherwise illegal acts (theoretically in the country’s best interests). These directives may come with pre-planned cover stories to be used in the event the operation is exposed, and they come with indemnity for those involved, giving them permission to lie about the operation or their involvement without fear of prosecution.
  • The public will rarely know about such presidential directives since most who see them must sign agreements that promise nondisclosure and consent to polygraphs.

Attkisson said that “computer surveillance is a grey area in the intelligence community where many insiders argue the traditional privacy restrictions and surveillance rules don’t necessarily apply.” Continue reading →
