    An interview Michael Bloomberg did with Firing Line in September is getting renewed attention this week, given his getting into the 2020 Democratic presidential primary race. Margaret Hoover said, “The United States currently accounts for about 15 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. China accounts for roughly 30 percent… Even if we get to net zero, how do you get China, India, and the other countries to be good partners?” Bloomberg said that China “is doing a lot” now and said, “The communist party wants to stay in power in China, and they listen to the public. When the public...

    Gay activists hound pastor out of jobELY, Cambridgeshire, England ( - An evangelical pastor in England is facing death threats and has been forced out of his secular job after he shared a tweet from a U.S. Catholic bishop warning against "gay pride" events. Keith Waters, 53, pastor of New Connexions Church in Ely, Cambridgeshire, copied a tweet from Bp. Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, reminding Christians not to "support or attend LGBTQ 'Pride Month' events held in June." Using Tobin’s words, Waters explained that the pride displays “promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Christian...

Each year, the Holy See sends a delegation to Istanbul on...

    Lisa Page, the former FBI attorney whose biased text messages cast a cloud over the two biggest investigations during the 2016 presidential campaign, made her first public comments in an interview published on Dec. 1. “It’s like being punched in the gut,” Page told The Daily Beast. “My heart drops to my stomach when I realize he has tweeted about me again. The president of the United States is calling me names to the entire world. He’s demeaning me and my career. It’s sickening.” Page played key roles in the investigations into Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an...

    Joe Biden insisted on Monday that he doesn’t need former President Obama’s endorsement in the Democratic presidential race because his connection to his ex-boss is already clear to voters. In an interview with Politico, the former vice president repeated his past claim that he told Obama not to endorse him in the primary. Asked whether he would want the former president’s blessing if the field of Democratic candidates narrowed to three people, Biden was blunt. “No, because everyone knows I’m close with him,” he said. “I don’t need an Obama endorsement.” Biden also addressed a recent Politico Magazine story recalling...

    President Trump signed a bipartisan bill on Monday that makes certain acts of animal cruelty a federal felony, saying it’s important for the nation to combat “heinous and sadistic acts of cruelty." The Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT) prohibits extreme acts of cruelty, including intentional crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating, impalement, carried out against "living non-human mammals, birds, reptiles, or amphibians." “Aaaw isn’t this wonderfully heart-warming!” respond some amigos. “Especially as President Trump cited the hero military dog Conan during the signing ceremony!”Perhaps. But let’s look more closely at the issue—especially at some of this legislation’s most fervent sponsors:“The...

    Joe Biden says he doesn’t need his former boss’s endorsement. In an interview Monday with Politico, the former vice president said having had that post under President Barack Obama is as much help as he needs. “No, because everyone knows I’m close with him,” he said. “I don’t need an Obama endorsement.” He reiterated to Politico his previous claims that he has asked Mr. Obama not to endorse him and said that this stance would not change as the Democratic presidential-primary field narrows and an Obama endorsement could become a game-clincher. Mr. Biden also said he wasn’t overly put out...

    Attorney General Barr is rejecting a key finding in the Justice Department’s inspector general’s report on the Russia probe, The Washington Post reported Monday. People familiar with the matter told The Post that Barr said he does not agree with the report’s finding that the FBI had enough intelligence to initiate an investigation into the Trump campaign in July 2016. The long-awaited report from the Justice Department’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to be made public in a week. But a draft is being discussed behind the scenes, and the attorney general reportedly is not persuaded that the FBI...

    Catholics refute pro-gay Fr. Martin for claiming ‘married’ lesbian judge is victim of ‘discrimination’ EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan, December 2, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-gay Jesuit priest Fr. James Martin is claiming that a pastor in Western Michigan is guilty of “discrimination” for asking a lesbian judge in a same-sex “marriage” to not present herself to Holy Communion. Hundreds of Catholic laity and several prominent Catholic clergy have taken to social media to refute his arguments. Martin, ordained in 1999, is one of the most well-known promoters of normalizing homosexuality in the Catholic Church. In the past, he has supported homosexual couples kissing during...

    During the holiday season conservatives are going to spend lots of time across the dinner table from a family member that’s a know-it-all Democrat. No matter how much you’re determined to simply eat, laugh and watch sports, there’s always that one family member who will continue to goad you until talking President Trump and politics is unavoidable.  After you’ve destroyed that person with facts, instead of licking his or her wounds and accepting defeat, they actively recruit all of your other Democratic family members to gang up on you. Much like the original instigator, you quickly realize that their arguments...
