100 Years Ago, Hollywood Made an Anti-Abortion Movie

There haven't been many since Where Are My Children

I keep reading that Hollywood wanted nothing to do with the new movie Gosnell because abortion is such a divisive topic. That, of course, is complete manure. They want nothing to do with pro-life movies because they hate pro-lifers.

If they truly just wanted to stay away from a controversial topic, why make movies like Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Dirty Dancing, Cider House Rules as well as countless television shows including Maude, Dawson's Creek, Party of Five, and most recently Scandal, all of which featured abortions?

Interestingly, a little over 100 years ago, Hollywood created a movie starring Tyrone Power Sr. in which he played Richard Walton, a district attorney, who was very pro-eugenics. In the silent film, he is trying a case against Dr. Homer, who has been arrested for distributing 'indecent' birth control literature that includes lines shown on screen saying, “When only those children who are wanted are born the race will conquer the evils that weigh it down.” (Sound familiar?)

Went to see Gosnell?

One funny thing about going to see "Gosnell." Before the movie, there's a preview for a movie about what a hero Ruth Vader Ginsburg is and everyone was looking around confused. One old guy asked his wife to check the tickets to make sure they were in the right theater.

The movie itself is horrifying, factual, well acted and a must-see for pro-lifers. For me, the scene with Janine Turner as an abortionist, is the scene that will stick with me.

10 Ways the Mafia Isn't like the Abortion Industry

Pope Francis recently compared the abortion industry to the mafia. If you ask me, that's not really being fair to the mafia though.

Here’s one difference: When the mafia kills, it’s illegal.

Here are 10 ways the mafia is different than the abortion industry.

1) The mafia doesn’t receive millions in government funding.

2) The mafia kills to protects its business interests. For Planned Parenthood, killing is the business interest.

3) The mafia claims that killing is only one percent of what they do.

4) Mafiosi go to jail for not paying taxes, Planned Parenthood doesn’t pay taxes.

Why Planned Parenthood Supports Birth Control

If birth control really curbed pregnancy rates, why would Planned Parenthood, which depends on abortion money, support free birth control for everyone?

The point is continuing to disconnect sex from pregnancy in the minds of people, actions from consequences. And birth control helps that along and will actually increase the need for abortions.

Good News! Google Exec Believes in Hell!!!

Good news: A Google Executive believes in Hell.

Bad News: he thinks you're going there.

A Google executive named David Hogue recently deleted his tweet about the GOP's confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

"You are finished, @GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins. F#$%. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL," tweeted Hogue, adding "I hope the last images burned into your slimy, evil, treasonous retinas are millions of women laughing and clapping and celebrating as your souls descend into the flames."

Whoa bro, force your faith on others much?

Ok, yeah sure this guy's a little in your face with his belief in Hell and exactly who belongs there but maybe it's refreshing in a way. I mean, how many Christians are out there willing to discuss H-E-L-L anymore? This guy's not only talking about the existence of Hell but sending people there!

I for one am glad to see a resurgence of Christianity among leftists. Why, just last month future failed Senate candidate Chelsea Clinton spoke at length about God and about things that are un-Christian like trying to overturn Roe v. Wade. I know I know this is a bit of a faux pas because Pope Francis warned us against talking about abortion too much but I'll forgive her this one time.

Yeah, sure you might not agree with every jot and tittle of her Christianity but hey we're dialoguing. Isn't that the important thing?

And let's not forget that while Nancy Pelosi won't allow prayer in schools, she calls on THE BIG MAN to do her political bidding in Congress. In a recent press conference while the Kavanaugh debacle was going down, Pelosi said, "I'm ever hopeful of an intervention, prayerful of a divine intervention," she said in order to prevent that "beer-drinking altar boy" from getting to the court.

I know all about the separation of Church and state but hey, sometimes getting God to do your political bidding is what's necessary. I for one am glad to see this resurgence of public Christianity. You see, you don't have to just watch EWTN anymore to get your daily dose of theology. You can just turn on MSNBC and CNN.

Anti-Kavanaugh Protest Canceled for Hating on Columbus

Headline: Anti-Kavanaugh protest postponed ‘in recognition of Indigenous People’s Day.

Me: Come on people, cant we hate on Columbus and Kavanaugh at the same time? #multitasking

Campus Reform:

An anti-Justice Brett Kavanaugh protest at Scripps College in California was postponed after student organizers realized the event was scheduled on Columbus Day or "Indigenous People's Day."

“We want to deeply apologize for scheduling this event on the same day as the 2nd annual Indigenous People’s Day," student organizers wrote. "Monday is a day for indigenous and non-indigenous allies to stand in solidarity and acknowledge the genocidal mission system that enslaved and killed 80 [percent] of Natives living on this land. Additionally, we stand in solidarity with the 5,100 missing and murdered indigenous people."
This is comical but it's also scary as hell. Because here you have these crazy leftists attacking Kavanaugh but guess what...they're deathly afraid of crazy leftists. Because they know in their hearts that anyone who gets in the way of leftism is just a speed bump on the road to utopia.

In short, they're not in control of this hate missile. They don't know where it's going either. But like Slim Pickens they're content to ride it all the way down.

Kavanaugh Hires Four Women as Clerks! Boof! Reactions are Priceless

The newly sworn in Justice Kavanaugh just hired his four law clerks, all women. That's some mad trolling right there. Boof!

The left responds with appropriate lunacy.

And here's the kicker:


Cardinal Oullet Calls Vigano's Claims against Pope "Blasphemous."

A top Vatican cardinal issued a scathing rebuke Sunday of the ambassador who accused Pope Francis of covering up the sexual misconduct of a prominent American cardinal, saying his claims were a “blasphemous” political hit job.

Hmmm. I don't think that word means what you think it means.

A top Vatican cardinal issued a scathing rebuke Sunday of the ambassador who accused Pope Francis of covering up the sexual misconduct of a prominent American cardinal, saying his claims were a “blasphemous” political hit job.
Six weeks after Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano threw the papacy into turmoil over his claims about ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the head of the Vatican’s bishops office said there was no evidence in his files backing Vigano’s claims that Francis annulled any canonical sanctions against McCarrick...

Ouellet said he understood that Vigano might be bitter at the way his own career ended, a reference to Vigano’s disappointment — expressed in leaked letters in 2012 — that he was never made a cardinal as he claimed he had been promised. But Ouellet said he couldn’t believe Vigano had arrived at such a “monstrous” and “blasphemous” conclusion, given that Francis had nothing to do with McCarrick’s career rise.

“You cannot end your priestly life in an open and scandalous rebellion that inflicts a painful wound” on the church and divides its people, he ended his letter. “Come out of your hiding place, repent for your rebellion and return to better feelings toward the Holy Father rather than fostering hostility against him.”


Twitter Does Job Georgetown Won't

So, at least now we know that on the list of most vile institutions, Georgetown is somewhere below Twitter.

So apparently, a Georgetown University professor tweeting about castrating senators who support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was too much for Twitter but not quite evil enough for Georgetown.
How sad is that? This nominally Catholic university hasn't even reprimanded her with a "yo, pump the brakes on the public crazy" or even a "we told you to wait an hour after sniffing paint to pontificate on Twitter" warning.

Professor Carol Christine Fair’s Twitter account is now no longer verified and was even suspended for violating Twitter’s rules against making violent threats. You see, she tweeted white Republican senators should die a wretched death for their defense of Brett Kavanaugh.
She wrote: “Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”

Well at least she's suggesting castrating them after they're dead. Small mercies. I'd hate to be a college Republican there. I'd start wearing kevlar boxers or maybe transfer to a place where freedom of thought is more acceptable...like Venezuela.

The Media's Not Melting Down over Kavanaugh. This is Every Day

Some are writing that the media is making their profession seem ridiculous because their bias is so obvious on this Kavanaugh story.

Jonah Goldberg wrote a piece titled "You Idiot Reporters Are Making It Worse."

He essentially starts off with saying,

I mention this up front to acknowledge that many of the people I am appalled by are, individually, smart and decent professionals. But, as a group, they are making fools of themselves and their profession, and making the country’s problems worse.

He adds:
I’ve spent much of the last couple of years decrying the increasing partisan tribalism of our politics. I’ve earned some strange new respect from liberals (and at times regrettable new enmity from some conservatives) because I’ve been willing to call out my team. A case in point: I don’t like President Trump’s “enemy of the people” rhetoric about the “fake news.” I don’t think it’s true or helpful or presidential. “Enemy of the people” is a totalitarian and authoritarian term of art unfit for our country or our president, and employing it gives license to the press to indulge its worst instincts.

But I'd like to make one thing clear. Their bias and willingness to deceive is no different on this story than it is on any other day. It's just that they're all working on the same story right now so it magnifies it and makes it easier to see.

But make no mistake, the media is this bad every day. It's just easier to ignore on other days.

*subhead*Yup. This bad.*subhead*
