  4. Ines San Martin‏Verified account @inesanma BREAKING: Vatican spokesman Greg Burke's statement on the Pennsylvania report: "there are two words that can express the feelings faced with these horrible crimes: shame and sorrow." 12:41 PM - 16 Aug 2018 H/T Dialy Wire

  6. The Daily Wire Kassy Dillon Aug. 16 2018 The White House announced on Thursday that they will be hosting a “Salute to the Heroes of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs Border Protection” event. The event is scheduled to take place on August 20 in the East Room in the White House. This comes after several Democratic candidates and elected officials called for the abolition of ICE, including congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI), Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA), and Rep. Nydia Veláquez (D-NY), among others.

  7. H/T Daily Wire: WATCH: Movie Trailer For Serial-Murdering Abortionist 'Gosnell' Is Finally Here, And It's Intense Barreling through roadblock after roadblock, the movie trailer for "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer" is finally here. The film, set for release on October 12 through independent film distributor GVN Releasing, details the real-life gruesome crimes and subsequent trial of serial-murdering abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who's currently serving a life sentence. Gosnell was accused of murdering a young mother and hundreds of newborns in his filthy Philadelphia-based late-term abortion clinic aptly dubbed the "House of Horrors" by prosecution. In 2014, Gosnell was convicted on three counts of first-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter. The film, as revealed in the trailer, not only highlights the horrors of Gosnell's crimes, but government corruption and a disengaged media. In one teased scene, the prosecution walks into an empty courtroom where seats were reserved for media. Pro-lifers have pointed out that the trial was shamefully ignored by most media due to their pro-abortion bias. (Snip)
  8. Hollywood Reporter Paul Bond Aug. 15 2018 The filmmakers behind a controversial feature about abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, now serving a life sentence, have released the first trailer ahead of a theatrical debut. Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer opens wide Oct. 12 through GVN Releasing and stars Dean Cain as the detective who put Gosnell behind bars. The film gets its title from a 2014 grand jury report that accuses the doctor of killing hundreds of newborns over the course of several decades in Philadelphia, though he was convicted of just three counts of first-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter. The movie, directed by Justified actor Nick Searcy and starring Earl Billings as Gosnell, has had a tough road, with producers Phelim McAleer and Anne McElhinney claiming that they were thrown off Kickstarter due to the anti-abortion nature of their film and had difficulty setting business meetings via traditional Hollywood avenues. (Snip) _________________________________________________________________________________________ My Comment "Controversial. What is controversial is no one in Hollywood would ever consider making a movie about this serial killer. What is controversial is a couple of documentary film makers with the financial support of people Hillary called Deplorable's made this movie. What is Really controversial is those people who really need to see this movie...won't, because it doesn't fit the narrative...that a human being is killed in every abortion"
  9. Alex Griswold ✔ @HashtagGriswold So the woman who called Masterpiece Cakeshop and asked for a cake celebrating her transition was "stunned" to discover they wouldn't. The date in question-- June 26, 2017-- is the same day SCOTUS granted cert to the Masterpiece case. She's a local lawyer. Come on. 11:49 AM - Aug 15, 2018

  15. NY Times Jon Pareles Aug. 16, 2018 Aretha Franklin, universally acclaimed as the “Queen of Soul” and one of America’s greatest singers in any style, died Thursday at her home in Detroit, her representative, Gwendolyn Quinn, said. She was 76. The cause was advanced pancreatic cancer, Ms. Quinn said. In her indelible late-1960s hits, Ms. Franklin brought the righteous fervor of gospel music to secular songs that were about much more than romance. Hits like “Do Right Woman — Do Right Man,” “Think,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” and “Chain of Fools” defined a modern female archetype: sensual and strong, long-suffering but ultimately indomitable, loving but not to be taken for granted. When Ms. Franklin sang “Respect,” the Otis Redding song that became her signature, it was never just about how a woman wanted to be greeted by a spouse coming home from work. It was a demand for equality and freedom and a harbinger of feminism, carried by a voice that would accept nothing less. (Snip)
  16. Great cartoons as always Pookie. Thank you so much for rounding them up for us.
  17. Hugh Hewitt Show Hugh Hewitt Aug 15 2018 The New York Times’ David D. Kirkpatrick joined me this morning to discuss his new book on the Egyptian convulsions of the past decade: Into The Hands of the Soldiers: Audio Transcript: HH: Long time listeners know every once in a while, a book comes along, whether it’s Lawrence Wright’s The Looming Tower or Seth Siegel’s Let There Be Water, Suicide of the West by Jonah Goldberg, or an author like Joby Warrick or Robert Kaplan, Dexter Filkins, Rajiv Chandrasekaran. I just sell hard, because a book does what journalism can’t do on a daily basis, which is give you some context and understanding of what’s going on in a region. Last week, I had David D. Kirkpatrick of the New York Times on, but I had not yet read Into The Hands Of The Soldiers, his brand new book on freedom and chaos in Egypt and the Middle East, and now I have. And it’s one of those books. Into The Hands Of The Soldiers is a must read. It is riveting, and David is back to join me this segment and next, and then for an extended conversation which we will post at Hughhewitt.com. David, good morning, thanks for coming back. DK: Well, thank you very much for that, Hugh. That is incredibly gratifying. (Snip)
  18. The Catholic Church’s Rotherham If the Church cannot govern itself from within, it will be governed from without. Michael Brendan Dougherty August 15, 2018 ‘We are deeply saddened.” So begin the many perfunctory statements of many Catholic bishops today in response to the Pennsylvania grand-jury report detailing how priests in that state abused children and how bishops shuffled these priests around. What deeply saddens these men? The rape of children, the systematic cover-up, or the little schemes to run out the clock on the statute of limitations? Are they saddened by the people who were so psychologically wounded by their abuse at the hands of priests that they killed themselves? What exactly are they sorry about? Soon the bishops are telling us about a chance for “renewal” after the promised implementation of new policies. They tell us about “overcoming challenges” in the Church. Or they use the phrase “a few bad apples.” I find it impossible not to notice that these expressions of sorrow never arrive before the courts, the state attorneys general, or the local press arrive on the scene. That fact gives you another idea about what causes the bishops’ sorrow. Fifteen years ago Frank Keating, the former governor of Oklahoma, resigned from a panel called the National Review Board, set up by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to monitor compliance with the Church’s new anti-abuse politics. He was under intense pressure to resign because he had offended bishops when he said some of them were acting like “La Cosa Nostra,” a reference to the Sicilian Mafia. (Snip) If the events outlined in the Pennsylvania grand-jury report had happened among Pakistani immigrants, rather than the Catholic clergy, the perpetrators would called a grooming gang. If we treated the Catholic Church the same way as the British public treated the grooming gangs of Rotherham in South Yorkshire, we would be asking tough questions about the culture that produces abuse on this scale. We would ask questions about what twisted form of political correctness dissuaded law enforcement from identifying and confronting the criminal network until now. We might be debating our immigration policy, and possibly shutting down our embassies in the countries from which this gang receives support and reinforcements. (Snip) Other state attorneys general should do investigations like Pennsylvania’s. As a Catholic, I’m tired of waiting for the next red slipper to drop. If the Church cannot govern itself from within, then it will be governed from without. That’s not a policy, but the iron law of history. “We are deeply saddened,” they say. Spare us this fake public-relations drivel. We don’t need your sadness, we don’t need new policies. We need better men.
  19. How Can We #RebuildMyChurch? Cardinal Wuerl Accidentally Points the Way Elizabeth Scalia Aug 15 2018 While it might seem that way, I’m really not trying to pick exclusively on Cardinal Donald Wuerl at this blog, but things…keep…happening. Last night I discovered that the Archdiocese of Washington, DC appears to have commissioned some PR help and created a website meant to support and/or protect the prelate’s reputation. You can find it here, at The Wuerl Record. (Snip) Emphasis mine, because it’s important; this is the language of the boardroom, where Key Performance Indicators (KPI) are cited to help assess failures or successes, and to produce subsequent values. Within context, they are all about the measure of management, not ministry. And that’s where The Wuerl Record has unwittingly shown where we might look to “begin to effect change” — and it is a change that isn’t even contingent upon a Papal action; the bishops can voluntarily take this up tomorrow if they are sincere about finding ways to restore trust within the American church. It’s quite simple: Currently, most of our bishops are more executives than priests, so let’s get them out of the boardrooms, entirely. In one part of the grievous Grand Jury Report, Cardinal Wuerl is reported to have have presided over the funeral of an abusive priest — one member of a horrific and perverse group who gave gold crosses to altar boys meant to signal that the boys “were optimal targets for further victimization”. At the Mass Wuerl “stated, among other things, that ‘a priest is a priest. Once he is ordained, he is a priest forever.'” Well, if so, then let our bishops and cardinals act like priests, not elite executives...........(Snip)

  22. Religion, Sex Scandal, Redemption and Justice John Schroeder Wed, Aug 15, 2018 Man, this is a tough one. A Pennsylvania grand jury has released a report on the extent of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy in that state for the last 70 years or so. It has created all sorts of sensationalist headlines. The hundreds of stories recounted in the report are each heartbreaking and in some cases sickening. One comes away feeling soiled in the reading, which when it is God’s redemptive institution doing the soiling, feels like it cannot be washed off. But then I read this (seven paragraphs in, after and ad break) in the NYTimes account: In other words, this is a historical account not a current reality. Yet virtually all the news stories I have seen have treated this as if it represents the current state of affairs in the Roman Catholic Church – the stories include calls to eliminate the statute of limitations. Apparently there is no redemption for God’s redemptive institution. (Snip) John God Bless You, you're a much nicer more forgiving person than I. Pal you miss one of the points, that point being...What happened to the Bishops Archbishops who supervised these criminals (because that is what these priests were/are) The following will be a hint as to what happened to one of them................. Donald William Wuerl (born November 12, 1940) is an American prelate of the Catholic Church. He is the sixth Archbishop of Washington, serving since 2006. He previously served as Auxiliary Bishop of Seattle (1986–87) and Bishop of Pittsburgh (1988–2006). He was elevated to the cardinalate by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010.
  23. Power Line Paul Mirengoff August 15, 2018 When candidate Donald Trump rolled out his “Make America Great Again” slogan, Hillary Clinton chided him for taking the position that America isn’t great now. But today, New York governor Andrew Cuomo attacked the slogan from the opposite perspective. He said: “We’re not going to make America great again; it was never that great.” He added that America “will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone, and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution.” The difference between these two takes may simply reflect the fact that Cuomo is more honest than Hillary. I’m not convinced she thinks America is great or ever was. I don’t think Barack Obama does. However, this much is true: There was a time not very long ago when no mainstream Democrat would publicly deny that America has been great. I’m pretty sure that Andrew Cuomo’s father, Mario Cuomo, never denied it and would have been appalled to hear any Democrat, and certainly his son, make such a declaration. Andrew Cuomo quickly backed off. A spokesperson tried to spin his comment it this way: (Snip) ___________________________________________________________
