Randall Terry: Obama is ‘arch child killer of Western Hemisphere’

A famed anti-abortion activist announced Tuesday he plans to use election laws to get graphic ads featuring dead fetuses on the air during the Super Bowl in 2012.

Randall Terry, the founder of Operation Rescue, will formally announce Thursday his plans to seek the Democratic presidential nomination against President Barack Obama in 2012, in order “to expose the genocide of unborn babies.”

Although Terry — who has linked himself to the tea party movement — stands little chance of energizing the Democrats’ largely pro-choice base, the activist said in an interview that the campaign would allow him to run graphic ads of dead fetuses during the Super Bowl.

The Sunshine State News reported:

Terry, who has backed graphic ads of abortion procedures before, hopes to run ads during the 2012 NFL playoff games, including the Super Bowl.

“America has never truly debated child-killing, because America has never truly seen child-killing,” insisted Terry. “We will use FEC and FCC laws for federal candidates to bring America face-to-face with this massacre of the innocents.”

In an interview with ABC, Terry appeared more eager to take on the president in earnest.

“I want to pummel Obama,” Terry told the network. “I despise this presidency. He is the arch child killer of the Western Hemisphere, so I’m going to go head-to-head with him.”

Terry has launched a website which features three videos described as “prototype ads for Super Bowl 2012.” One ad compares abortion to “slavery, child labor [and] segregation” and features images of fetuses juxtaposed against images of lynchings of black people and images of the Holocaust.

Another ad declares that “tyrants on the Supreme Court and political collaborators such as President Obama have decreed that children can be killed in their mother’s womb at any time, for any reason.”

ABC News noted:

While TV networks occasionally reject ads based on controversial or graphic content, the Federal Communications Act requires broadcasters to provide legally qualified political candidates fair access to ad time and forbids them from censoring ads “in any way, or for any reason.”

Terry said he’s confident he can raise the $2.5 million for a Super Bowl spot and that CBS would broadcast it.

Published

President Donald Trump Sunday morning admitted he brought up Joe Biden and the former Vice President’s son Hunter Biden while speaking with the President of Ukraine.

“The conversation I had was largely congratulatory, with largely corruption, all of the corruption taking place and largely the fact that we don’t want our people like Vice President Biden and his son creating to the corruption,” Trump said, speaking to reporters from the White House lawn.

‘Left wing hack’: Fox News fans lose it after anchor calls Ukraine allegations ‘a problem’ for Trump

Published

on

Fox News viewers lashed out at the network on Sunday after host Arthel Neville grilled New York Congressman Peter King (R) about President Donald Trump's alleged effort to get Ukraine to help him defeat Joe Biden.

Neville twice asked King about Trump's Ukraine scandal, and both times he evaded the question by saying that Congress does not have a right to know the details of Trump's conversations with foreign leaders.

On her third attempt, Neville got to the point by noting Trump's alleged actions are "a problem."

"We don’t know that it’s true, we hope it’s not true," the Fox News host said of the allegations against Trump. "But if there is a possibility that our president used his office to put pressure on a foreign government -- president-elect -- to dig into his possible, potential political opponent, then that’s a problem."

New York Times battered on MSNBC for pushing smear of Hunter Biden in order to maintain access to Trump

Published

on

An "AM Joy" panel jumped all over the New York Times for pushing a widely debunked smear of Hunter Biden promoted by Donald Trump, saying the newspaper is more interested in maintaining their access to the Oval Office than debunking the lie.

Speaking with host Joy Reid -- who noted that her producers asked for comment from the Times but were rebuffed -- MSNBC regular Maria Teresa Kumar scorched the Times, as well as reporter Ken Vogel, for the uncritical parroting of the president's smear.
