    SF Archbishop to Pelosi: 'No Catholic Can Dissent' on Abortion 26 Jan 2015 By Courtney Coren San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, responding to recent statements made by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, says there is no debate in the Catholic Church about life beginning at conception and no room for Catholics to "dissent" on the principle. During a press conference on Jan. 22, the same day the pro-life group "March for Life" was holding its annual rally in Washington, Pelosi would not answer whether she believes life begins at 20 weeks, saying that "it's not up to politicians to" make...

    Hi all. My father past away recently, and while cleaning out his house, we found some old army uniforms. I suspect they were one of my mothers brothers uniforms. They have a number ink stamped inside F-2817, that I would guess would be an identification tag of some sort. Also, there are no other id's on the uniforms except for a 6th Armored Division patch. Any help would be appreciated. Does anyone know of an internet site where I can type in a name of a relative to finds dates of service, etc.? Thanks.

    Caroline Glick picked up on one article the Israeli left-wing paper Ha’aretz didn’t bother translating into English that details Obama’s involvement in the upcoming Israeli elections. A summary of the article is provided by IMRA (Independent Media Review & Analysis): Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today [January 26] that the foreign funded organization, “One Voice”, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections. One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including...

    House Republican leaders Monday pulled a controversial, party-sponsored border security bill from a vote scheduled later this week, citing poor weather conditions in the Northeast. However, Republican and Democratic opponents of the bill contend that the leadership pulled it for lack of support. House leaders postponed all Monday votes as blizzard conditions socked-in much of the Northeast. The cancellation further truncated a short congressional work week. The House is scheduled to adjourn Wednesday so the chambers Democrats can attend a retreat in Philadelphia the rest of the week. A House Republican leadership aide said there are no scheduling announcements at...

    I was looking forward to seeing American Sniper. I took my brown Native high school-aged son to see it. Im a fan of Clint Eastwoods acting and directing, and his Sniper is a beautifully shot and directed action packed flick. But after his film, I spent the hours drive home explaining to my son why I thought the movie was dangerous and corrosive to the American people. This is a tense war movie that looks great. But just underneath the films sexy veneer is a shockingly racist ideology of hate and death that is advanced by the white male sniper...

Politicos Mike Allen reports that Tom Nides, who was formerly Hillary Clintons deputy secretary of state, will be leaving his vice chairman position at Morgan Stanley for a top role in Clintons 2016 campaign. Unmentioned by Allen is that Nides is the longtime husband of Virginia Moseley, who has been the vice president and deputy Washington bureau chief for CNN since 2012.

    Satan hates the Blessed Virgin Mary. In fact, he has been doing everything in his power to discourage devotion to her and instill hatred for her for two millennia. Have you ever noticed that it is Marian dogmas and devotions that stir the strongest reactions in those who reject the Church? Even some good Catholics are embarrassed by devotion to our Lady, and they feel we should not be too extreme in our veneration of her. Perhaps you, too, have wondered why the Church holds the Immaculate Virgin in such high regard. Perhaps you have wonder why God has chosen...

    With polished silverware still in the kitchen drawers and outdated toiletries sitting on a dusty dressing table, these incredible photographs show a perfectly preserved home that was abandoned by its owners decades ago. From the retro patterned wallpaper to the well out-of-date food in the pantry, the dilapidated home in Ontario, Canada, is a remarkable time capsule. An urban explorer called Dave made the stunning discovery while he was looking at abandoned properties in his home province - and documented his findings on his websiteFreaktography.

    Politicians who oppose President Obama can bluster all they want, grab headlines and curry favor with donors yet dont have to be responsible for their (too often) irresponsible critiques and prescriptions on foreign policy. So it was refreshing to hear Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky split with some of his fellow Republicans on Iran during a presidential forum on Saturday organized by Freedom Partners. As far as Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida are concerned, negotiations involving the United States and five other major powers on Irans nuclear program are endangering America and the world.

    In May 1881 US explorers approached Jeannette Island, Wrangell Island and Henrietta Island in the Arctic Ocean and claimed them for the United States. But according to the Obama Department of State no claim exists today over these US islands. In fact the State Department is conspiring with Russian President Putin to give away Wrangell Island to Russians. Wrangell and its 200 mile exclusive economic zone (EEZ) has billions of barrels of oil/gas reserves and hundreds of millions of pounds of fisheries. It also has a strategic military location for tracking Russian moves in Arctic. The Coast Guard is a...

    In the United States, one in four women are victims of domestic abuse, which is why some abortion advocates argue that women need safe and legal abortion care. In fact, they believe that abortion is a life-saving option because pregnancy can tether women to violent men. Tragically, a recent example of this argument appeared in the article, I Gave Myself an Illegal Abortion after My Boyfriend Forced Me to Get Pregnant. A woman named Kaity shared that she had an illegal abortion after her abusive boyfriend forced her to get pregnant. She writes, Shane didnt like to use condoms. He...

    Republican Senator Ted Cruz recently made a splash by agreeing to appear at a glitzy retreat for observant Jews. There, he will likely promote his hawkish foreign policy, but would be wise to avoid another of his favorite topics, the Judeo-Christian" values which he says make up America's moral foundation. These values belie a dangerous, exclusionary worldview, deeply at odds with the universal American dream Cruz claims they represent. Politico, which described Cruz as a likely Republican presidential candidate and vocal Pro-Israel hawk, speculated that this was likely an early effort on Cruzs part to woo Jewish elites and powerbrokers....

    LEXINGTON Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes ended months of speculation Monday, telling a crowd of about 70 supporters that she will seek re-election this year rather than mount bids of governor or attorney general. Grimes had been linked to nearly every constitutional office as the filing deadline approached, but she officially launched her re-election campaign at the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center, the same place she jumpstarted her 2011 run for secretary of state. The 36-year-old Democrat had kept a low profile since her 15-point loss to U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell last fall, and she listed...

    After 30 years of disastrous multi-billion-dollar public construction disasters, cost overruns, and scandals, it appears that a bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Boston may be the last straw for overtaxed voters in the deep-blue state of Massachusetts. Two weeks ago, the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) gave Boston the nod as the American city to bid for the 2024 summer games. In its presentation, the pro-games group Boston 2024 smugly informed the USOC that Boston is overwhelmingly united in its bid. Er, no. Critics quickly began comparing the Olympics to the Big Dig, the ambitious downtown Boston highway project...

By its very definition, an FTO should be considered declared enemy of the U.S. Despite this, Turkey doesnt appear to be paying any price. Another player in all this is the small nation of Qatar.

But a trio of scammers had no problem showing their receipt at Lowes, running a multi-state shoplifting/return scheme for several months.

Not all that long ago, military service was practically a requirement for serving in Congress. The high point in recent decades was the 95th Congress (1977-78) when, following an influx of Vietnam-era veterans, a combined 77% of the House and Senate had served in the armed forces. But...

The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which passed 242-179, would require that insurance plans that receive government funding no longer cover elective abortions. In reaction, some liberals have argued that the bill would increase taxes on small business.

    <p>Benedict Cumberbatch says he was an idiot to refer to non-white actors as colored. The Academy Award-nominated actor used the word on PBS talk show Tavis Smiley last week while discussing diversity in the entertainment industry. He said that as far as colored actors go, there were more opportunities in the U.S. than Britain, and thats something that needs to change. British anti-racism charity Show Racism the Red Card said it welcomed Cumberbatchs comments on diversity but felt the term he used was outdated. In a statement Monday, Cumberbatch apologized for his thoughtless use of inappropriate language.</p>

Im calling because I recently got an abortion at the Hallmark Clinic in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and it was one of the worst experiences Ive ever had in my life. Her emotion-laden voice proceeded to detail her experience that seemed straight from a horror novel. I called her...

    Obamacare program costs $50,000 in taxpayer money for every American who gets health insurance, says bombshell budget report It will cost the federal government taxpayers, that is $50,000 for every person who gets health insurance under the Obamacare law, the Congressional Budget Office revealed on Monday. The number comes from figures buried in a 15-page section of the nonpartisan organization's new ten-year budget outlook. The best-case scenario described by the CBO would result in 'between 24 million and 27 million' fewer Americans being uninsured in 2025, compared to the year before the Affordable Care Act took effect.

    Nancy Pelosi has big problems in her ranks. The California lawmaker is facing some of the most serious unrest shes ever seen in her dozen years as the leader of the House Democrats: Members complain that the party has no message and no clear plan to retake the majority, despite good news on the economy that should have brought rewards at the polls. They also accuse senior lawmakers of failing to pull their weight in dues as they occupy coveted committee slots. Pelosi remains the pre-eminent force in her caucus, and nobody is stepping up to challenge her. But the...
