  • Charles Krauthammer: U.S. Heading Down Conspiracy Rabbit Hole (2017)

    The other storyline is simply fantastical. Congressional Republicans have uniformly run away from Trump's Obama-wiretap accusation. Clapper denies it. FBI Director James Comey denies it. Not a single member of Trump's own administration is willing to say it's true. Loopier still is to demand that Congress find the truth when the president could just pick up the phone and instruct the FBI, CIA and DNI to declare on the record whether this ever occurred. And if there really was an October 2016 FISA court order to wiretap Trump, the president could unilaterally declassify the information yesterday. The bugging story is...
  • Cuban state media goes after our first black president(your)

    The Havana Tribune, a state-controlled Cuban newspaper, has added insult to injury following Fidel Castro’s scathing criticism of President Barack Obama upon his departure from the island. In an editorial, the title of which refers to President Obama as “negro,” an opinion columnist has accused him of “inciting rebellion.” The article is titled “Negro, żTu Eres Sueco?” which roughly translates to “Black Man, Are You Dumb?” (The idiom “pretend to be a Swede” means to play dumb, hence the title is literally asking, “Are you Swedish?”) The author, who is black, goes on to condemn President Obama for meeting with...
  • What did Pope Francis actually say about contraception?

    Despite a rush of headlines claiming Pope Francis is softening the Church's stance on contraception. A closer look at his recent remarks could suggest otherwise. During an in-flight press conference on his way back from Mexico, Pope Francis was asked by a reporter about the threat of Zika virus in many Latin American countries. Noting that the virus may be linked to birth defects when transmitted from a pregnant woman to her unborn baby, the reporter asked the Holy Father about proposals involving "abortion, or else avoiding pregnancy" in areas where Zika virus is prevalent. The Pope responded by emphatically...

    Today the Sydney Morning Herald published yet another article by their Islamic poster boy Waleed Aly. The comment preceding the post on facebook said, "This isn't really a conversation about Islam. It's too transparent politically, and theologically illiterate – for that. The more interesting story here is one of a collapsing brand of politics." The irony is' that quote came from Waleed Aly himself in an attempt to criticise Tony Abbott and Donald Trump. Yet it far more accurately describes Waleed and every other Islamic apologist given air time in the media. So come on Waleed' let's talk about Islam....

    Photo credit: Dave Davidson ( U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) had several memorable moments during the 2015 Presidential Family Forum last Friday evening. Cruz trumped Ben Carson (pun not intended) critiquing President Obama’s foreign policy. Carson called Obama an “armchair quarterback.”Cruz said it’s worse than that.“The policies he is advancing are helping the other team,” Cruz said point blank.Frank Luntz, who was moderating the forum, noted that was strong criticism and asked what the motivation was.“I am neither a psychologist or a priest. So what I will say is… Listen this is a president who in the past week...
  • You Don't Think Francis Can Change Church Doctrine? He Just Did.

    Please excuse the provocative title, and do not misunderstand. Obviously, neither the Pope nor anyone else can change Church doctrine normatively. That is, Church doctrine remains true and unchangeable whatever people--without or within the Church--believe or say. In the same way the teachings of Christ or the Commandments themselves remain true and unchanging. What the Pope can do, however, is to say that Church doctrine has changed or, more to the point, imply by his words or actions that it has. Or he can say or imply that Church doctrine wasn't what most people--including most people in the Church itself...

It is targeted at Jews. It’s targeted at Muslims in the region who do not accede to the radical Islamist view.”The president defended his words on ISIL on Wednesday during the White...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said he thought Republicans ought to stay away from personal attacks on the Clintons, like Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul’s comments that former President Bill Clinton was a “sexual predator.” “I personally don’t like to see us get into the personal issues of candidates because once you go down that road, it’s hard to ever put it in reverse and go back, and I’m just not sure that’s something we want to do,” Huckabee told reporters at CPAC. “Bill Clinton is not gonna be on the ballot in 2016 or 2014, it’s very possible that his...

    This administration's proudest foreign policy boast is the assassination of Osama Bin Laden. But the Benghazi fiasco and the simultaneous mob burning of our Cairo Embassy by Al Qaida on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11/01, proves to radical Muslims that Osama bin Laden has won. His jihad has gone from strength to strength, gathering more militant fanatics than we killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Osama bin Laden is now a hero, and Barack Obama is a weakling who never stops trying to surrender and apologize. The New York Times just found a known leader of the September 11 assault by...

    A NUN who has been superior at a Syrian monastery for the past 18 years has warned that media coverage of ongoing violence in that country has been “partial and untrue”. It is “a fake”, Mother Agnes Mariam said, which “hides atrocities committed in the name of liberty and democracy”. Superior of the Melkite Greek Catholic monastery of St James the Mutilated in Qara, in Syria’s diocese of Homs, which is in full communion with Rome, she left Ireland yesterday after a three-day visit during which she met representatives of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Maynooth. She told The...

    Obama took his You Don’t Love Me Enough reelection tour on the road to the 57th state this weekend on his way to a less hostile, foreign audience. No, the stopover wasn’t in Kenya. It was in Hawaii on his way to Bali, Indonesia, as a part of a new election strategy that aims to capture the entire foreign vote for Obama and the Democrats. Hey, and why not? No one has done more for those thrifty, industrious, hard working foreign countries than Obama has. And under Obama’s executive amnesty program it’ll be easier than ever for foreigners to register...

    Associated Press ^ | Sept. 19, 2010
    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says illegal immigrants do essential work in the U.S. and he has firsthand knowledge of that - because they fix his house. Powell, a moderate Republican, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is "what's keeping this country's lifeblood moving forward." In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants because they "are doing things we need done in this country." He added: "They're all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I'm sure you've...

    For the first time since the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Japan 65 years ago, today the U.S. ambassador to Japan will attend the official commemoration ceremony at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. The U.S. ambassador has always declined the annual invitation, but this year is different. President Barack Obama decided to acknowledge the event with the presence of a high-level dignitary. As State Department spokesman Philip Crowley explained, Ambassador John Roos will be there "to express respect for all the victims of World War II." Gene Tibbets—the son of Brig. Gen. Paul W. Tibbets Jr., the pilot who...

    In an interview with The Sunday Times of London, Oliver Stone declared that the “Jewish-dominated media” prevent Hitler from being portrayed “in context.” Stone did not explain what “context” could conceivably justify aggressive war and genocide. Stone added, “Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and it’s been used cheaply.” And all this time, I thought the Jews were the scapegoats. Silly me. You see how enlightening it is to have a leftist world view? Stone pontificated, “We can’t judge people as only ‘bad’ or ‘good.’” Really? He judges America as bad, and its enemies as good, whether they are...
