KERMIT GOSNELL (CONT.)

Ken Berwitz

Since the disgraceful partisan club which passes for mainstream media these days still is determined to write next to nothing about the mass murderer kermit gosnell, I will try as best I can to keep you up on the news about this monster, who apparently either personally killed, or oversaw the killing of, hundreds of live, born, out-of-the-womb babies.

Excerpted from Kyle Smith's article in yesterday's New York Post:

At the Women's Medical Society in Philadelphia, abortionist Gosnell was murdering, in the estimate of the grand-jury report, "hundreds" of babies, though he now stands formally charged with only four of the slayings, plus that of a 41-year-old grandmother. The grand jury noted with alarm that in Pennsylvania, you can't be charged with infanticide if the murder occurred two or more years earlier.

Regulators hadn't bothered to visit Gosnell's murder factory in 17 years.

The army of local and state government snoops was just too busy investigating houses that had leashes on their front lawns to take any interest in whether any newborns might happen to be getting their heads hacked off and their feet placed in jars like pickles.

Gosnell's murder spree would probably be continuing uncontested were it not for the fact that his abattoir coincidentally turned up in an unrelated prescription-drug investigation.

So, how many Gosnells are out there right now? Isn't in it in the interest of any of our various governments to find out?

As President Obama said, in reference to the massacre of children in Newtown, "If there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try."

Obama bemoaned the influence of a rich, well-connected, absolutist influence group (the gun lobby) at that time.

Will Gosnell's murder spree cause the president to bemoan the influence of a rich, well-connected, absolutist influence group (the pro-abortion lobby) this time?

Of course not. Obama praised Planned Parenthood Friday morning ("God bless you") and not only didn"t mention Gosnell, he didn't even use the word abortion, of which the organization provides more than any other group in the US.

Instead he kept using euphemisms like "women's health," as though pregnancy were a disease and ending it was like prescribing medicine, and he even confused abortion with "contraceptive care."

Obviously a mass murderer is news.  Big news.  So why are media not touching this story with a ten foot pole?  

There is one reason and one reason only:  kermit gosnell, in addition to being a mass murderer who is also charged with well over 350 other, non-murder offenses - many of them thoroughly depraved in their own right - is an abortionist.

And, as anyone who pays attention to mainstream media certainly knows, it is verboten to say a bad word about an abortionist.  Even if he supplemented his abortion trade by killing live babies who were already-born and out of the womb. 

No, no, no.  We can't have that, because it might reflect badly on the wonderful, humanitarian, benevolent abortion services the gosnells of the world are nice enough to provide.  So this monster gets a free pass from NBC, CBS, ABC, the New York Times, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

But not here.  Nor will he ever.

To be continued....


NOBODY ASKED ME BUT....

Ken Berwitz

It's that time again. 

With a tip of my imaginary hat to the late, great Jimmy Cannon, here is the latest edition of "Nobody Asked Me, But...":  a collection of this and that, not necessarily of any importance and not necessarily related to one another:

Nobody asked me but....

-Finally a couple of really nice days  - 70s and sunny - in the New York Metro area.  I was beginning to think that never was going to happen anymore.

-I just asked Laura, who is sitting next to me, what one thing bothers her more than anything else.  She tells me that it is lateness - especially because she tends to be early for things.  From the jaded perspective of a Brooklyn/Queens native, I am resisting the urge to answer that I am bothered by people who show up early to everything  and make me feel guilty even if I'm on time.

-My wife and I drove from New Jersey into Queens on Friday....and spent over an hour in contruction delays on the Staten Island Expressway.  Then there was another 30 - 45 minutes of construction delay on the Belt Parkway.  The trip took three hours, and was about as much fun as a case of impetigo.  The only thing that made me feel better was knowing that, for me, it was a one-day-and-out situation, while other people do it all the time (e.g. teachers who live in NJ, but whose schools are in Brooklyn or Queens).  I hate to admit it, but knowing someone else is screwed even worse I am really does help sometimes.

-The single most monumental collapse I have ever seen in a professional basketball game occurred just last night, when - with less than three minutes to go - the New Jersey Nets had a 14 point lead (109 - 95), had possession of the ball, and had a breakaway layup which, 99 times out of 100, would have resulted in an easy basket, thus a 16 point lead.  But the basket was missed, the Chicago Bulls went on an amazing 16 to 2 run - mostly because their little fireplug of a guard, Nate Robinson, kept shooting and didn't miss - tied the game, at 111-111, and eventually won it in triple overtime.  As a Nets fan, let me say, from the bottom of my heart....yech.

-How come the apparently illegal recording of Mitch McConnell and his people discussing opposition research which could have been used if Ashley Judd were his opponent, has been so completely buried by our wonderful "neutral" media?  Would they have done the same if a conservative illegally taped a discussion which potentially could have embarrassed a liberal Democrat (I say "potentially" because nothing in the illegal McConnell tape was even remotely embarrassing)?  Oh, wait, isn't that what they did every time James O'Keefe taped anyone, legally or illegally?  Today's media have about as much professional integrity as Lindsay Lohan has personal restraint.

-I love finishing the Sunday New York Times puzzle in ink.  On weekdays, that puzzle, and the two kenken games next to it, are probably more why I buy the paper than anything else (instead of just reading it online) - along with the fact that it makes good bathroom material (for reading, not that other use:  it's much too scratchy and the print leaves marks).

-Barbara Bush will be 88 in June, and still looks and sounds terrific.  Husband George, who will be 89 that same month, unfortunately is not making out as well physically - but still seems to have his full mental acuity.  I always liked them as a couple and hope - with limited optimism, I admit - that most other people, regardless of their politics, feel the same.

-Speaking of Presidential families, a new low may have been hit this week when Chelsea Clinton, who does not appear to be making much headway as a TV personality, interviewed - so help me, I'm not making this up - the Geico Gekko. If you really don't care about how you spend your time, you can see the video at Noel Sheppard's blog for newsbusters.org.  Professionally speaking, this is roughly the equivalent of a bookkeeper being moved from an office with a window to a broom closet...and told he/she will be sharing it with the janitor. 

-Only because I used the ridiculous example above, I will mention that bookkeeper is the only word in the English language with three consecutive double letters.  And, while we're on the subject (sort of), facetiously and abstemiously are the only two words with every vowel, used one time, in order.  If you can think of more useless information than this, do let me know.

-Quick:  What do Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Rosa Parks, Jesse Owens, Mel Allen, Jim Backus, Lloyd Bridges,Jimmy Hoffa, Danny Kaye, Red Skelton and Burt Lancaster have in common?  No idea?  Ok, I'll tell you.  They all would have been 100 this year.

-It is far from certain, but Mark Sanford stands an excellent chance of losing the May 7th congressional special election in a deep-red district to Steve Colbert's sister, Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch.  And Republican primary voters have no one to blame but themselves.   This man comes with his own self-destruct button.

-Why have restaurant wine prices jumped so high?  We were at the Cheesecake Factory last night and my wife's glass of house pino grigio was $9.10 - plus tip, of course.  You can buy a double-sized bottle of Mezzacorona Pino Grigio at Sam's Club (probably at least a dozen or more of the servings she got) for just a dollar or two more than that, and it is at least as good (for all I know, it is exactly what they gave her).  This is the second time in recent weeks we have found that wine prices have lurched significantly northward.

-Are you as tired, and exasperated, of John Boehner as I am?

-Are you as repulsed by Nancy Pelosi as I am?

-When I was growing up, my mother always had muenster cheese in the house.  I don't know if it was because she preferred it over other cheeses or because it was cheap - could have been either.  But I remember liking it a lot and always trying to snare that extra slice.  As an adult, however, I can't say its taste appeals to me at all.

-Mexican hot sauce - the real stuff, not the crappy watered-down garbage - is is always welcome on our table (for me, not my wife who makes an "eeewwww" face at the mere thought of it).  I love the buzz it gives foods, and even a small bottle of the authentic stuff can last a long, long time.

-Our 6 year old grandson has become fascinated by coral reefs - especially the creatures which inhabit them, with a special emphasis on box jellyfish (also known as sea wasps).  He can give you a detailed dissertation on what a box jellyfish is, how it is constructed, where they are most frequently found and what happens if you happen to be stung by one of them (which, unfortunately, involves a casket.)  Of all the creatures found in a coral reef, what attracted him to box jellyfish in particular?  Your guess is as good as mine.

-I will end by mentioning that you cannot find a better person than Grace.  You don't know who Grace is or why I say that, and it isn't going to be posted here.  But, believe me, she earns the accolades every day. 

Ok, back to the usual stuff.....


BENGHAZI: HOW BIG WAS THE LIE? HOW BLATANT WAS THE COVERUP?

Ken Berwitz

Usually, when I cite a commentary here I post key excerpts, along with a link so that you can read it all. 

But not this time.

Arnold Ahlert, at frontpagemag.com, has written a fully referenced, and absolutely devastating, narrative of just how completely we were lied to about the Benghazi massacre, and how much of a coverup the Obama Accomplice Media have perpetrated on us ever since. 

It is so important that you read the entire piece that I refuse to provide the opportunity to see just part of it.  I urge you in strongest terms to

and see just how bad it really is.

What a mistake you would be making not to do so.

INTERGENERATIONAL JIHAD (AS IF WE DIDN'T KNOW)

Ken Berwitz

According to Eileen Sullivan and Matt Apuzzo's article for the Associated Press:

Russian authorities secretly recorded a telephone conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother, officials said Saturday, days after the U.S. government finally received details about the call.

In another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case, officials said.

The conversations are significant because, had they been revealed earlier, they might have been enough evidence for the FBI to initiate a more thorough investigation of the Tsarnaev family.

Please do not tell me the first two paragraphs surprise you in any way.

But that third one?  Feel free to join me in being as skeptical as you care to.  Because I don't believe a word of it. 

The Obama administration has made clear that it will do whatever it can to obstruct and roadblock this investigation - up to, and including, the disgraceful Obama sock puppet, Attorney General eric holder, sending a magistrate -  accompanied by a lawyer (i.e. instant representation) - to read murdering maggot dzhokhar tsarnaev his Miranda rights and immediately advise him to clam up. 

Does that indicate to you in any way that Obama & Co. want the public to know what really happened in Boston on Marathon day?

There is more to this.  Much more.  Stay tuned...because I don't think the Obama BS squad is going to be able to stop it from coming out.
