This is the Movie Hollywood Does Not Want You to See — GOSNELL

There is an incredible movie with pro-life implications in the theaters right now, Gosnell

Published

There is an incredible movie with pro-life implications in the theaters right now, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, starring Dean Cain, Sarah Jane Morris, and Nick Searcy (who directed the film).

Gary Bauer notes that in its opening weekend, the movie was in the Top 10 movies (on Friday and Saturday): “That is an amazing accomplishment given that it had a limited opening in fewer than 680 theaters, compared to 4,250 for the weekend’s number one film.”

One acquaintance (well-versed in the art of film) wrote: “I went to see it last night in Burbank and was really surprised at how well done it is. Such a difficult subject and yet they handled it perfectly. It’s not graphic or gross or anything like that. And it is not preachy either. Really well done….Please go see this film.”

On my radio show, I spoke with Irish film-maker Phelim McAleer, who, along with his wife, Ann McElhinney, were the driving force behind the movie. He said that they were purposefully not gory in telling the story: “It’s got a gritty feel to it….It’s like a Law and Order episode, only on the big screen.”

This pro-life movie is already changing hearts and minds on the abortion issue. After seeing it, noted McAleer, one liberal viewer started chain smoking and remarked, “I have to rethink everything.”

Here is how the film came to be. In 2013, McAleer was in Pennsylvania because of a movie he and his wife were making related to fracking. He had a couple of days off, and he noticed in the newspaper that there was a trial going on of an abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell. He was accused of killing babies that were slated for abortion. They were born alive, and he then snipped their necks with scissors. The producer dropped into the courtroom to hear a bit of the trial.

McAleer was astounded by what he saw at the trial. He describes the pictures shown in the courtroom (not shown in the movie) taken inside what has been called “the Philadelphia House of Horrors” as “the most horrific I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been a journalist for 25 years.”
Sitting in the courtroom, he was also “listening to the most horrific evidence. Kermit Gosnell is a few yards away from me, just sitting there all calm and serene. But the most shocking thing of all was behind me, the empty press benches.”

McAleer told his wife about the trial upon returning to their home in Los Angeles. She reminded him that they don’t do films related to abortion. He said this was a much bigger story than just abortion. She became convinced when she saw the transcripts from the trial, and thus was born the film.

The movie Gosnell is a must-see. But McAleer told me, “This is the movie that Hollywood and the mainstream media don’t want you to see.” Indeed, Facebook and NPR have blocked ads for the movie.

McAleer gives a contrast. The same weekend that Gosnell came out, there was a movie about opioid addiction called Beautiful Boy, which was in even fewer theatres than Gosnell. Yet that movie was reviewed by 70 mainstream reviewers. In contrast Gosnell only garnered two mainstream reviews.

McAleer said, “This is a blockade, a blacklisting. Look at what the mainstream media did with the trial of Kermit Gosnell.” They ignored it for the most part (except for a brief time when they were shamed into covering it by a social media campaign), just like they are now ignoring this movie.

I told McAleer that I noticed the film lists its copyright as 2016, yet it was not released until October 2018. He said getting distribution was also tough.

Even to produce the film, they experienced many obstacles. Kickstart would not let them fundraise, even though they used it before for previous films. They used “Indiegogo” instead, through which they raised $2.3 million from 30,000 people.

There were some actors that bailed on the project, said McAleer, because their friends in Hollywood told them that if they worked on this movie, they would never speak to them again.

He told me, “This is not a popular move in Hollywood. Hollywood claims to love controversy, but really what they love is people shouting loudly about something that they agree with. When someone disagrees with them, they want to shut them down.”

Despite the fact that the movie did relatively well during its opening weekend, the Daily Wire (10/19/18) noted that about 200 of the 600 theaters dropped it after a week. The blacklisting continues.

Pro-lifers can put their money where their mouth is and support this incredible film. As McAleer puts it: “Get the numbers up and show Hollywood that there’s a demand for the truth.”

DC Comics Celebrates New ‘Wonder Woman’ Comic by… Making Her Morbidly Obese?

In a bid to ingratiate themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement, DC Comics has re-imagined Wonder Woman as a morbidly obese.

Published

on

In a bid to ingratiate themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement, DC Comics has re-imagined Wonder Woman as a morbidly obese, vaguely African American character in the cover art for its newest Wonder Woman 1984 comic book series.

The new series is supposed to coincide with Gal Gadot’s upcoming second movie outing as the titular character in, Wonder Woman 1984.

The nation’s second biggest comics company recently teamed up with Rooster Teeth comics and illustrator Robin Eisenberg, who drew one of the variant covers for the new comic book series. And DC said there’s only one word to describe it: “rad.”

The art depicts Wonder Woman as an overweight, vaguely black-looking woman in a pair of ripped mom jeans and a halter top with the Wonder Woman logo across it.

Maybe “gross” would be a better word.

Take a look:

What in the holy Amazon is that?

Wonder Woman is supposed to be an Amazon warrior who serves as a paragon of strength, beauty, virtue, and power. Not a 300-pound, fast-food addict!

The art received fanfare from many left-wingers, granted, but not everyone thought the comic cover portrayed the ideal Wonder Woman:

Is this morbidly obese slob what DC is encouraging young girls to aspire to emulate?

Antifa Tries To Stop Car, Attacks It, Then Follows Driver Home

The silent majority is officially PISSED OFF!!! Play stupid games win stupid prizes!!!!

Antifa pajama boy dropped his motorcycle in front of a pickup truck thinking it would stop the driver from escaping the mob. The driver wasn’t having any of it and proceeded to melt the motorcycle into a metallic sheen on the road.

I’m surprised the DA hasn’t charged the driver with theft of the motorcycle. I want to know what the city officials out there have to gain by sucking up to these terrorists? Most of them likely don’t vote, they are of no benefit to them. Anyone who stops you from traveling on a public roadway should be considered to be a threat to your safety and you should be able to take any defensive measure needed to remove yourself from the situation.

Oprah Says That ‘Whiteness’ Gives You An Advantage In America’s ‘Caste System’

Is that racist?

Oprah Says That ‘Whiteness’ Gives You An Advantage In America’s ‘Caste System’

In her new Apple TV+ series, Oprah Winfrey says being White ‘gives you an advantage no matter what.’

She says America has a “caste system” based on race and that white people are at the top: “There are white people who are not as powerful as the system of white people—the caste system that’s been put in place—but they still, no matter where they are on the rung, or the ladder of success, they still have their whiteness.”

Winfrey promoted the book Caste for her Book Club. It’s about racism and the “unspoken caste system that has shaped America.” She says that it’s full of “a-ha! moments.”

Fox News:

Oprah Winfrey discussed the advantages White Americans have over non-White communities in terms of reaching success on her new Apple TV+ series.

The media mogul had an in-depth discussion about climbing the ladder in corporate America on her new show “The Oprah Conversation.” Winfrey’s first episode featured an interview with former NFL player Emmanuel Acho. The episode’s title, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man: Part 1” is based on the former linebacker’s YouTube series and upcoming book of the same name.

Acho begins the episode with a statement to viewers, explaining that he believes in order for White people to understand systemic racism, it starts with having an understanding of the “full level of pain” Black citizens experience.

“I fervently believe that if the White person is your problem, only the White person can be your solution,” Acho said on-camera via The Washington Times. More

Is anyone else tired of being called a racist for no good reason? I’m white and I never had the breaks you’ve had Oprah. But I’ve worked hard and I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished. I refuse to apologize to you or anyone else for the life I alone have created.

She has the audacity to complain about whiteness while she indulges herself in luxury and an unprecedented quality of life. She’s an absolute ungrateful, blind, liberal who talks big but won’t act on her racist comments. What a hypocrite.

Tactical Nuke Used In Massive Beirut Explosion?

Published

on

A massive explosion that destroyed several city blocks rocked the port area of Beirut, Lebanon, on Tuesday killing dozens. The explosion shattered windows for several miles in the city and could be felt as far as Cyprus, hundreds of miles away.

Nearly 80 deaths have already been attributed to the explosion.

Lebanon’s Prime Minister, Hassan Diab, said that 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate that had been stored for six years near the waterfront had accidentally ignited causing the explosion.

As a means of comparison, the fertilizer bomb Tim McVeigh used to destroy the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995 contained only 4,800 pounds of ammonium nitrate.

The massive red plume rising over the explosion’s epicenter hung over the city like the Red Horseman of the apocalypse.

Beirut, situated at the edge of the Mediterranean Sea near where Syria, Jordan, and Israel meet, has been wracked by internal strife for years, so many doubt the official explanation of the blast.

On Tuesday evening, President Donald Trump said that the explosion looked more like a “bomb of some kind” than it did a mere accident.

“According to them – they would know better than I would – but they seem to think it was an attack,” Trump said from the White House. “It was a bomb of some kind.”

Investigations into the incident are ongoing.

Pro-Trump Herschel Walker Slams Pro Sports For Supporting BLM

Herschel Walker: America wake up…if we love our Country, let’s speak up, stand up and protect it!

“For the first time in a long time, I stopped in the middle of my workout because last night I saw something that really, really disturbed me. I saw a bunch of people holding a BLM sign burning the Holy Bible. Burning the flag of the United States of America, also burning a cross. And I started thinking that NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB: is this the people you’re supporting right now? Is it the movement? Is it the organization? Because I don’t think that’s right.”

“Maybe, Washington: we cannot continue to sweep stuff underneath the rug, ’cause sooner or later we’re gonna stumble,” he continued. “People, are we being fooled?”

TDW:

On Sunday, upset by the scene in Portland where leftist activists burned Bibles, former NFL star and Heisman Trophy Winner Herschel Walker called out professional sports for supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, asserting, “I don’t think that’s right.”

Walker, who graduated his high school as the valedictorian and won the Heisman Trophy in 1982 to become the only player in NCAA history to finish in the top three in Heisman voting in all three of his collegiate seasons. More

Appearing on Fox News this weekend, Walker stated of people afraid to speak out: “You have so many people today afraid to speak out because of what they’ll be labeled as. I’ve been labeled as so many names; people have called me so many names. We’re fighting for America right now. We’re fighting for America. Do not be afraid to speak out for what is right. What is right is — we don’t defund the police. Let’s be real. If you want to win a Super Bowl, you don’t take money away from your team; what you do is go out and pay players more money to get a better team … you put more money in; you don’t take money out.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Ignorantly Says Man Who Gave Life to Serve Lepers is a ‘White Supremacist’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said that a Belgian Catholic saint who gave his life to care for lepers is a “white supremacist.”

Published

The historically illiterate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said that a Belgian Catholic saint who gave his life to care for lepers is a “white supremacist.”

In a recent video posted to Instagram, AOC belched out the claim that Hawaii’s Father Damien, a Belgium-born 19th century priest, is an evil white man even though he dedicated the last years of his life to serve a leper colony on the island of Molokai and contracted the disease and died from it himself.

“This is what patriarchy and white supremacist culture looks like! It’s not radical or crazy to understand the influence white supremacist culture has historically had in our overall culture & how it impacts the present day,” Ocasio-Cortez said of the selfless Father Damien.

“It’s not Queen Lili’uokalani of Hawaii, the only Queen Regent of Hawaii, who is immortalized and whose story is told. It is Father Damien. This isn’t to litigate each and every individual statue, but to point out the patterns that have emerged among the totality of them in who we are taught to defy in our nation’s Capitol: virtually all men, all white, and mostly both,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.

AOC truly does live the maxim, “don’t sit quietly and let people think you are a moron. Speak up and prove it.”

Father Damien, who was made a saint by the Catholic Church in 2009, gave his lie ministering to people who no one else would help.

But all leftists like Ocasio-Cortez see is their anti-white man agenda. The Belgian saint is evil merely because he is a “white colonizer.”

“Even when we select figures to tell the stories of colonized places, it is the colonizers and settlers whose stories are told – and virtually no one else,” Ocasio-Cortez screeched.

Donated to the United States by Hawaii along with the statue of King Kamehameha I, Father Damien’s tribute has stood in the U.S. Capitol since 1969.
