The Windy City’s connection to President Barack Obama never seems to get old, and that’s often bad for the administration. This past week, U.S. attorneys filed a motion to have Dr. Eric Whitaker, a long-time friend of Obama since their days as grad students at Harvard, declared a hostile witness in the trial of Chicagoans Leon and Karin Dingle. The Chicago Tribune, in a story last Wednesday by Ray Long, offered a balanced approach to Whitaker and the Dingles, which…
There’s a good Political Diary over at The Wall Street Journal today by editorial writer Jason Riley. In short, it’s some much-needed straight talk on a media culture (and a president) that refused to budge from its familiar narrative — facts be damned — when it comes to cops, crime and black culture. “The president and his administration are very focused on the underlying issues that have been uncovered in a pretty raw way in Ferguson,” said White House press…
Whether or not you watch “Saturday Night Live” (which stopped being funny in about 1979), you probably know that the opening skit this past weekend came pretty close to hitting a parody home run as it lampooned Obama’s executive action on immigration. The skit featured cast members dressed as a legislative bill and an executive action, mimicking the popular Schoolhouse Rock feature “I’m Just a Bill.” Well, apparently it wasn’t funny for the so-serious Solons over at the Washington Post,…
Sometimes, the press gives away its own bias in subtle ways. That’s certainly the case with a Crain’s Chicago Business story headlined, “Business has Obama’s back on immigration.” From the headline, you would think that every one of Chicago’s business leaders called by the business broadsheet are in favor of the program outlined by the president to the nation Thursday night. But the text tells a very different story than the headline. In fact, Crain’s says as much in the opening paragraph….
So-called ‘net neutrality” – a phrase made up by the same politicians who brought us “wetlands” and “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” – will be one of the defining issues of the early 20th century. And while it’s mostly a national debate, local readers need the local papers to tell them what it means for them. Sadly, that’s not happening. Both the Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune have wire service stories today that turn it…
It didn’t get much press coverage this week, but Gov. Pat Quinn (D-Ill.) is touting the giant expansion of Medicaid in Illinois – already the second biggest drain on the state’s budget behind the public-pension crisis – as fulfilling the “mission of a lifetime” ahead of the Quinn re-election fundraiser Thursday night in Chicago that will be headlined by President Barack Obama. As the Chicago Tribune’s Michelle Manchir reported it: Three things have changed: The state has far exceeded expectations…

Asterisk president. Like he took performance-enhancing drugs or something.
WASHINGTON, DC – Tuesday, Congressman Aaron Schock (R-IL) called for acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller to step down as developments continue to unfold in the growing IRS Scandal that conservative leaning organizations were targeted for extra scru…

The Elegance of murdering children?
Planned Parenthood used to be a GOP pet project. Back in the day Planned Parenthood, a group dedicated to killing unborn children, attracted the hearts and minds of Brahmins in Boston, Knickerbockers in New York, Philadelphia Main Liners and the Percys of Illinois. Back in the day, no Democrat would would sit down, or up-wind of a Planned Parenthood Dowager with a handbag full of cash.
Democrats, back in the day, were Catholics and devout Jews, or Baptists. Things change, or as Progressives who always embrace eugenics, be it euthanizing the mentally challenged or the Old Folks at Home, or good old fashioned infanticide, was found to be wholesome to Mainline Protestant ( Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Methodists and of course the United Church of Christ) Babbitts, as well as the east coast elites.
Back in the day, Planned Parenthood was a tough sell. Then came Vatican II, Camelot, The Great Society and The Pill. Abortion was put on the back burner and Contraception became all the rage. Gradually, the Planned Parenthood’s GOP supporters slid into the tar-pits of history: John Lindsey, Nels Rockefeller and Chuck Percy shed their mortal husks.
By the 1968 Convention in Chicago coalitions against LBJ’s War on Uncle Ho, included leading voices of the Abortion Industry including America’s Pediatrician for Kids Who Managed Not To Be Aborted - Dr. Benjamin Spock. The meme be -If Dr. Spock be with us, who can stand against us?
After all, Dr. Spock stood with Ramsey Clark, a towering legal nitwit, against The Bomb and The War!
Soon, every Democrat who ditched the Brillcream infavor of Men’s Hair Spray was courting the Dowagers of Death at Planned Parenthood to help them slaughter children and pass out condoms in public schools.
In Philadelphia, a man with an MD went to work aborting babies in the black community – just like Maggie Sanger demanded. This proud black man of medicine butcher full-term live children and received Federal Dollars to do so.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell is on trial, but you will not any report, or commentary of Gosnell’s Gore in the pages of the Chicago Tribune or the Chicago Sun Times which owe fealty to Planned Parenthood and obey Governor Pat Quinn’s boss Personal Pac President Boss Terry Cosgrove.
Here is what you might have missed -
An 18-page chapter in the Grand Jury report is entitled “The Intentional Killing of Viable Babies.” Gosnell was supposed to perform abortions, but because he often performed abortions on women who were well past the legal limit of 24 weeks, many of the fetuses were fully-formed and could survive if delivered. The practice of inducing labor, actually meant that many of the women gave birth. Sometimes they were told to sit on a toilet and expunge the baby, because Gosnell was not there to oversee the procedure. Other times, a baby would come out of the womb and Gosnell would take a live, screaming, kicking baby and sever its spinal cord with a snip of the scissors. It was a practice, the Grand Jury report alleges, that happened hundreds of times over the years, but because much of the paperwork and evidence was destroyed, there were only seven provable incidents.His young victims included Baby Boy A, nearly 7 and a half months, killed and discarded in a plastic shoe box. Baby Boy B, 28 weeks, was frozen forever in a gallon water bottle. Baby C was living in the world for 20 minutes before Williams, according to testimony by Cross, came in and extinguished the new life with a slice to the neck, as she’d seen Gosnell do.As also described in testimony, women were drugged up, most by employees with no medical training or certification to do so. More from TruTV:
Because the cramping from the laminaria and the Cytotec was so severe, the women were often in excruciating pain for hours at a time. Gosnell was usually not on the premises. This meant they were immediately drugged — often to the point of overdosing. Restoril, a sleep disorder treatment with muscle relaxant properties, was the drug of choice — often given in addition to the sedation packages.Most of the time, eight or ten women were kept in a single room, moaning and groaning in pain. Gosnell’s instructions were to drug them up as much as possible to “quiet them.”
Our Democrats are fine with this. Back in the day, Democrats were on the side of unborn, the innocent and helpless and then they got on “The Right Side of History” with Dr. Kermit Gosnell, MD and the Dowagers of Death -Planned Parenthood.
