  • Maxine Waters: Violent Protests ‘Make America Better’, Republicans Should ‘Feel Uncomfortable’

    Over the weekend, California Representative Maxine Waters once again defended her public statements encouraging her supporters to harass and assault their political opponents in mobs. During a Saturday appearance on the “Roland Martin Unfiltered” web show, Waters insisted that such protests “make America better” because protestors are fighting for “justice and equality for everybody.” Rather than deny that she has been encouraging violent behavior against Republicans, Waters justified such tactics by claiming that the very nature of protests is to make their targets “feel uncomfortable”: “I told someone the other day who is trying to say that we are violent...
  • When Laws Are Not Enforced, Anarchy Follows

    What makes citizens obey the law is not always their sterling character. Instead, fear of punishment -- the shame of arrest, fines or imprisonment -- more often makes us comply with laws. Law enforcement is not just a way to deal with individual violators but also a way to remind society at large that there can be no civilization without legality. Or, as 17th-century British statesman George Savile famously put it: "Men are not hanged for stealing horses, but that horses may not be stolen." In the modern world, we call such prompt, uniform and guaranteed law enforcement "deterrence," from...
  • Kyrsten Sinema in 2002: It'd be 'inappropriate' to condemn destruction of property by anarchists

    Washington Times ^ | October 12, 2018 | Philip Wegmann
    A decade before she took an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution, Rep. Krysten Sinema was palling around with anarchists. And while the Arizona Democrat certainly condemns violence now, as a far-left activist, Sinema refused to condemn anarchist destruction of property. Emails from June 2002 and obtained by the Washington Examiner give insight into Sinema's work as a community organizer for the Arizona Alliance for Peaceful Justice. The group, she wrote at the time, “opposed the use of violence and weapons in all situations” and “believes in world disarmament.” For all those high-minded ideals though, Sinema wasn’t ready to...

    Violence: Already angry over their inability to control the flow of politics in Washington, the militant Left is getting even angrier. And more militant. Following a week in which Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee were unable to stop a hugely qualified constitutional jurist, Brett Kavanaugh, from advancing to a vote of the full Senate despite the use of a “hail Mary” sexual assault allegation, the perpetually triggered Left is lurching towards a full meltdown, even to the point of openly calling for violence against all conservatives and supporters of POTUS Donald Trump. As noted by PJ Media, self-avowed Communists...

    Epic Fail: On Thursday one hundred newspapers around the country are set to simultaneously run editorials bashing POTUS Donald Trump for his characterizing them as “fake news” and ‘enemies of the people’ — which is pretty much what they all do everyday unofficially. Because practically no one in Trump’s America trusts them anyway, the ‘mainstream’ media’s equivalent of another anti-Trump temper tantrum isn’t going to affect POTUS’ approval rating one iota — unless, of course, it will drive it up. The papers are going to whine and complain that POTUS Trump is ‘harming the First Amendment’ through alleged attempts to...

    (Barf Alert) --- (snip) -- The author and political scientist offers a traditionally timid party some bold ideas. Democrats are despondent right now. Already in control of the White House and Congress, Republicans are poised to solidify their majority on the Supreme Court, and the Dems are powerless to prevent it. What can they do? David Faris has many suggestions, but they boil down to an attitude: No more Mr. Nice Donkey. Faris argues Democrats have been too passive and accepting of the fundamental unfairness of the American political system. He points to the undemocratic nature of the United States...
  • Pope Francis Says Intercommunion Policy Should Be Decided by Diocesan Bishops

    VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis said Thursday that the German bishops’ debate on the reception of the Eucharist by the non-Catholic spouses of Catholics, also referred to as intercommunion, should be decided by diocesan bishops, rather than bishops’ conferences.  Speaking aboard the papal flight from Geneva to Rome June 21, the Pope told journalists that the Code of Canon Law leaves decisions about the criteria for intercommunion to diocesan bishops, in order that their decisions will apply only to their individual dioceses, rather than to the Church across an entire country. The Pope said that although the German bishops attempted...

    Political assassinations, murders, and violence continue to escalate as Mexico’s elections approach. In the 10 months since the election cycle started, nearly 130 political candidates were murdered. The most recent took place this week in Buena Vista Michoacan when a team of cartel gunmen shot and killed Javier Ureña Gonzalez, the acting mayor for the municipality as he visited a small village. Ureña assumed the role of acting mayor while his boss Lorenzo Barajas took leave to run for re-election. Ureña’s murder comes one day after a Oaxaca state congressional candidate was gunned down along with four of his associates...

    ...Instead of its pasta, Red Hen restaurants are now famous for partisanship—and, like most every liberal these days, “panic, ignorance, and malice.” Instead of angry politics, the Virginia location that turned away Sarah Sanders claimed they were doing so based on “moral convictions.” How absurd. Of course, as most now well know, the “moral convictions” of modern liberalism allow for the killing of the most innocent and helpless among us, the legal redefinition of the oldest institution in the history of humanity, the attempted redefinition of gender, the embracing of virtually every sexual perversion imaginable, and so on. In other...

    The Hill ^ | 06/23/18 | David S. D’Amato
    In 2015, in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election, Bernie Sanders infamously insisted that open borders is “a Koch Brothers proposal,” and free immigration is a “right-wing proposal, which essentially says that there is no United States.” Vox’s Ezra Klein, Bernie’s interviewer, quite correctly observed that open borders would “make the global poor richer.” As philosopher Jason Brennan writes in “Libertarianism: What Everyone Needs to Know,” “When economists estimate the welfare losses from immigration restrictions, they tend to conclude that eliminating immigration restrictions would double world GDP.” Sanders’ assertions of concern for the global poor ring awfully hollow...

    If left unchecked, "broken windows," and all visible social and physical disorder lead to increased crime, as well as fear of crime A recent report from the Public Policy Institute of California claimed that crime in California has not increased, and recidivism rates decreased due to Proposition 47. “We find no evidence that violent crime increased as a result of Proposition 47,” the Executive Summary reports. The truth is very different. Cities all across the state of California are under siege with the explosion of California homelessness, as well as the reclassification of many crimes. This is directly linked to...

    America’s current economic situation is not one of financial security or encouraging growth. Below the surface of our 106+ month-long “recovery,” now the second longest on record, is a sense of anxious anarchy in American households. Working men and women are struggling to make ends meet and many are simply not working at all. The real story that is not being told by the mainstream media is how close we are to an epic collapse. You have to work! Not sure if you have been following this story or not, but a 30-year-old man from New York has just been...

    Episcopal Conferences The motu proprio Apostolos suos of S John Paul II regulates Episcopal Conferences and rightly restricts their dogmatic role. This is on the doctrinal ground that the Universal Church, gathered round the Bishop pf Rome; and the local, diocesan Church gathered round the Bishop; are the only ecclesial realities which exist iure divino. As Cardinal Mueller has explained more than once, Conferences exist only at a human and utilitarian level. Bound up with this matter is the theological controversy between Cardinals Ratzinger and Kasper about whether the Universal Church, or the Particular Church, has ontological priority. The papal...

    Government in the name of order, control, efficiency, organization, the greatest good for the greatest number, solidarity, social justice, and safety is instead ruling over a society that is increasingly disordered, crime-ridden, unjust, and disturbed to an extreme. A word that describes the direction of our acceleration through space and time is anarchy. The momentum toward anarchy began with the move toward federal government expansion. During Woodrow Wilson's presidency, we began to see the implementation of what is now called the administrative state. This was helped along by our participation in WWI, which created the need for more governmental controls....

    DALLAS - If you can’t win big, go small. That’s the strategy gaining momentum among criminal justice reformers in the age of Trump, as the federal government hardens its approach to law enforcement. Instead of pouring money and energy into squeezing change out of Washington, national civil rights organizations are teaming with local groups to push their agendas in county-level district attorney races, where a few thousand votes can determine who asserts the most influence over the local justice system. Picking their targets carefully, and crunching election data to influence pivotal voter blocs - and benefiting from the largesse of...

    On Oct. 11, 2016, Michael Foster and two companions rose before dawn, left their budget hotel in Grand Forks, N.D., and drove a white rental sedan toward the Canadian border, diligently minding the speed limit. As the driver, Sam Jessup, and a documentary filmmaker, Deia Schlosberg, recorded events from the back seat. For months, he’d imagined his next actions: He would snip the padlock that secured the gate and approach the blunt length of vertical pipe in the center of the enclosure — the stem of a shut-off valve for the 2,700-mile-long Keystone Pipeline. What neither the sheriff’s department nor...

    Neither the vest from the accredited training program nor the certificate are required under the ADA. The ADA says anyone can train their dog, or miniature horse, to perform a task that mitigates or helps them with their disability. Professional training is not required. ADA also specifically prohibits cities, merchants and others from requiring proof that a dog is a service dog. It allows, in fact, only two questions. Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability? What work or task has the dog been trained to perform? Service dog owners may not be asked about the...

    My spies tell me that something is up in Rome and that, tomorrow, we may see some … sub-optimal news in the the form of a document. Pray that this is wrong. ___ UPDATE: I’m starting to get calls about this. So, tomorrow, I believe, we will find in L’Osservatore Romano, a Motu Proprio whereby the Legislator will change the law to give conferences of bishops the ability to confirm the translation of liturgical texts. I’ve looked at L’OssRom for Saturday 9 September, and there is nothing in that issue. This will lead to greater disunity between regions which speak...
