    North Korea will not return to the six party talks unless issues with the US are resolved, a high level North Korean diplomat said Saturday. According to reports citing participants of the Moscow Nonproliferation Conference, North Korean Foreign Ministry’s Director General of North America Affairs Choi Sun-hee said that Pyongyang will not return to six party talks, and that the country will only negotiate with the US. “Suggestions from various countries are welcome, but as the US is the country that is trying to pressure and to bring about the collapse of North Korea, the issue must be resolved with...

    Steve Bannon and Roger Stone are two of President Donald Trump’s most controversial former advisers but recent reports indicate that Trump has kept communications open with the men despite neither having official government roles. As CEO of the 'alt-right' Breitbart news network, Bannon is viewed by the president as a hotline to the populist conspiracy-theory driven base that helped his rise to power. Multiple associates of both Trump and Bannon told The Washington Post that the two have kept in regular touch since Bannon resigned as White House chief strategist in August. Despite Bannon declaring war on the Congressional GOP...

    Chip and Joanna Gaines grace the cover of People magazine’s October 23, issue. The husband and wife costars of the home makeover show ‘Fixer Upper’ – the highest rated series in HGTV’s history – explained why they decided to walk away from their hit series after five successful seasons. I’ve had my suspicions about the Waco, Texas couple since I caught an episode in which Joanna placed several pieces of artwork on a wall. The piece that stood out to me proclaimed: “We walk by faith, not by sight.” I image that many, if not most, of the 46 million...

    For years, actor Corey Feldman has argued that Hollywood has a very serious issue: pedophilia. He is a victim of abuse himself. As a child actor, he and his fellow '80s star Corey Haim suffered tremendously because of pedophiles in powerful positions. According to Feldman, Haim started using drugs to cope with this trauma. As most people know, drug addiction eventually killed him. [VIDEO OF FELDMAN] Although Feldman has been warning the entire world about Hollywood's powerful pedophiles for years now, he has mostly been ignored by the powers that be of the mainstream media. See, for instance, this exchange...

    Former President Jimmy Carter spoke out on the current President in an interview out last night with The New York Times‘ Maureen Dowd. As Dowd writes, Carter sounded “eager” to work with Donald Trump on North Korea. He said he would even be willing to go there himself: He said he has talked to Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, Trump’s national security adviser, who is a good friend, including at Zbigniew Brzezinski’s funeral when McMaster asked to sit next to Carter, but has so far gotten a negative response. “I told him that I was available if they ever need...

    The major developing stories this week have been so scantily and poorly covered in the mainstream press that you may want an easy primer. To fully understand it you have to look at alternative media, because just as Harvey Weinstein counted on complicit enablers -- his colleagues, victims and the press -- Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller and a cast of characters, including a press determined to cover for them have hidden what occurred. It’s taken some time, to be sure, but the evidence of their wrongdoing is becoming harder and harder to hide. Stalling and misdirection are their last redoubt....

    Friday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” filmmaker Ken Burns said many Confederate monuments were “all about the reimposition of white supremacy” after the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision causing the desegregation of public schools. Burns said, “There is a professor — Barbara Fields — from Columbia University, and she says the civil war is still going on. Not only still going on, but it can also still be lost. Regrettably, it can still be lost … We haven’t resolved this the question of race.” He continued, “So the monuments is a big deal and we have to understand...

    Stratton-on-the-Fosse, England, Oct 19, 2017 / 12:54 pm (CNA).- A new BBC series will depict the daily life of Benedictine monks in a few UK monasteries, taking camera crews to capture a lifestyle normally hidden from the public’s eye. A three episode mini-series called “Retreat: Meditations from the Monastery,” the broadcast will explore the life of three different abbeys: Downside, Belmont, and Pluscarden. Produced without a narrator, the series aims to portray the quiet contemplation of the monks’ daily routines using only the natural sounds of the monasteries. Viewers will be able to experience the sights and sounds of meals,...

    Life is great if God is at the center, even if we are poor, says former Muslim. Balut Island: Her parents' religion did not prevent Evangeline Musaling-Pacinabo to embrace the Catholic faith and help spread the Good News on a remote island in the southern Philippines. Evangeline's Muslim parents migrated from Indonesia to the small island of Balut in the southern province of Davao Occidental in the 1940s, during the height of World War II. As years passed, some of the migrants and their children became Catholics with the blessing of their non-Catholic parents.
  • Government Report: Pakistani Women Failed to integrate

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    A government report has been released that looks at how various communities have integrated. It will be of little surprise to anyone that Pakistani women who do not speak English have completely failed to integrate and, in fact, live in an extremely isolated environment. Quite why people close to the government are surprised by this is baffling. Could it be that they live in secluded communities away from the hustle and bustle of the average Brit? It is the very people who commissioned the study that are to blame for the lack of integration. They had an idea of multi-cultural...

  • Coptic priest’s murderer is a Islamist fanatic, says bishop

    For Abba Estiganous, bishop of Beba, religion is behind the murder of "martyr" Sam'an Shehata. His murderer, Mohamed Sonbaty, attacked his own relatives in the past and set fire to their home. For neighbours, he is a known radical. The Catholic Church shares the pain and offers prayers. Cairo (AsiaNews) – The killer of Saman Shehata, a Coptic Orthodox priest stabbed to death last Thursday, is well known to law enforcement. His name is Mohamed Sonbaty, said Abba Estiganous, Bishop of Beba, in a statement released today on the priest's "martyrdom". The lethal attack appears to be religious in motivation....
  • Missing the Target, Hitting the Foot

    When taking aim, try not to hit your foot. You may need that foot, if only to put it in your mouth. Our bizarre age of ideological bickering continues as if we’ve not been sated yet. At least, the editors of The New York Times think its readers still demand a full barrage of invective and “argument” against “the right.” The Gray Lady has graced its pages with the writings of one Jane Coaston, who in mid-October took on conservatives in yet another farrago: “The Hollow Bravery of Ben Shapiro.” Ms. Coaston accuses Shapiro — the brilliant intellectual pugilist widely...

    "The doctors of the law are not just of those times, there are so many even today. That is why we need to pray for shepherds. Pray so that we do not lose the key to knowledge and do not close the door to ourselves and the people who want to enter." Vatican City (AsiaNews) - Do not forget that salvation is free, an expression of God's closeness, because "when you forget the gratuity of salvation you fall, you lose the key to knowledge of the history of salvation". "That is why we need to pray for ourselves as shepherds",...

    Unlike what we’ve seen in recent weeks, college football Week 8 wasn’t loaded with upsets, shocking losses or many huge surprises. There were some serious statements made, however, by teams looking to gain a foothold in the soon to come College Football Playoff rankings at the beginning of November. The two biggest games of the weekend were rather lopsided affairs. Both USC and Michigan were chewed up and spit out by their respective opponents. Meanwhile, the likes of Alabama and TCU made easy work of the poor teams they were matched up against
