    Pope Francis and Clergy Sexual Abuse in Argentina[To see a database of accused Argentine clergy, click here.] Jorge Mario Bergoglio was archbishop of Buenos Aires from 1998 to 2013 and president of the Argentine bishops’ conference from 2005 to 2011. During these years, as church officials in the US and Europe began addressing the catastrophe of child sexual abuse by clergy – and even as Popes John Paul II and Benedict made public statements – Bergoglio stayed silent about the crisis in Argentina. He released no documents, no names of accused priests, no tallies of accused priests, no policy for handling...
  • Mark Sanford: Support for Trump is a ‘cancerous growth’ on GOP

    "GOP lawmaker Mark Sanford (S.C.) said the unyielding supporting Republicans are giving President Trump is a "cancerous growth" on the party. Sanford made the comments in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine two days after his defeat in Tuesday's South Carolina primary race. The outgoing congressman addressed public perception that he wasn't loyal enough to Trump and how it helped lead to this week's loss. "It is a cancerous growth," Sanford said. "The basis on which people's frustrations have been built is real and understandable in the way that at times Washington doesn't work for them or their families and...

    Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) appears to have lost his Tuesday primary, which became a referendum on his criticism of President Trump. State Rep. Katie Arrington, who hammered Sanford as a traitor to President Trump, is projected to win the GOP primary in a victory that may spell the end of Sanford’s long political career in the state. The Associated Press called the race at 12:09 a.m., with Arrington leading Sanford by 51-47 percent margin with 99 percent of precincts reporting. Sanford becomes the second incumbent to lose a reelection primary bid this cycle. Sanford had never lost an election until...

    A highly publicized extramarital affair didn’t end Mark Sanford’s political career. Nor did the revelation, less than a month before a 2013 special election for Congress, that he had to go to court because his ex-wife had accused him of trespassing. The National Republican Congressional Committee’s decision to cut off funding to him that year was also not a fatal blow. He won his next elections. Then came Donald Trump. Sanford has been one of the president’s most vocal Republican critics in Congress, and Republican primary voters punished him for it. Sanford lost Tuesday night to Katie Arrington, a state...

    Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA. He is MIA and nothing but trouble. He is better off in Argentina. I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. VOTE Katie!

    One wonders what is it, that so intimately links Pope Francis with his dear, dear buddy, “Tucho” Fernandez; as we all know, the new archbishop of La Plata, Argentina.The association between Bergoglio and Fernandez is a long one, and Bergoglio has obviously found in his younger connational a soul mate. It is inconceivable that, after so many years of friendship, Bergoglio has not found the time to read “Tucho’s” main claim to ecclesiastical immortality; namely, that book, “the art of kissing”, that so proudly bears as its author the name of the newly minted Archbishop. Nor is it realistic to...

    Bone with bullet hole found by Russians in 1946 came from an unknown woman, not the German leader Tests on skull fragment cast doubt on Adolf Hitler suicide In countless biographies of Adolf Hitler the story of his final hours is recounted in the traditional version: committing suicide with Eva Braun, he took a cyanide pill and then shot himself on 30 April 1945, as the Russians bombarded Berlin. Some historians expressed doubt that the Führer had shot himself, speculating that accounts of Hitler's death had been embellished to present his suicide in a suitably heroic light. But a fragment...

    French researchers claim to have put an end to conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Adolf Hitler, after a study of his teeth proved he definitely died after taking cyanide and shooting himself in the head in Berlin in 1945. The researchers reached their conclusion after they were given rare access to fragments of Hitler’s teeth which have been held in Moscow since the end of World War II. "The teeth are authentic, there is no possible doubt. Our study proves that Hitler died in 1945," said professor Philippe Charlier. "We can stop all the conspiracy theories about Hitler. He...

    The European Union and Mexico reached an agreement on Saturday on a new free trade deal, a coup for both parties in the face of increased protectionism from the United States under President Donald Trump. Since its plans for a trade alliance with the United States were frozen after Trump’s election victory, the EU has focused instead on trying to champion open markets and seal accords with other like-minded countries. The agreement in principle with Mexico follows a deal struck last year with Japan and comes ahead of talks next week with the Mercosur bloc of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and...

    You've heard of skunks at the garden party? Such as still-ruling Nicaraguan socialist strongman, Daniel Ortega, who got his famous nickname from none other than the great Ronald Reagan? Well, now we have pigs at the garden party of democracy, the Organization of American States' Summit of the Americas, and this time, quite literally. At the globally watched summit, locals released a bunch of pigs through the streets of the Peruvian capital of Lima, around the Plaza San Martin, which is one of its main public spaces, spray-painted with the names of Venezuela's dictator, Nicolas Maduro, and Cuba's dictator, Raul...

    Perhaps you didn’t hear about Israel’s alleged air strike on a Syrian military installation last week, but the incident has significant global ramifications about which you should be aware.In Israel, it’s always reported that incidents like these are “allegedly” carried out by Israel because in most cases, Israel neither officially confirms nor denies responsibility.  This is part of a culture where all military items go through a censor. Overtly stating that Israel did something like this is typically not allowed.  Ambiguity also allows Israel’s enemies the wiggle room that, though they may know full well that something might have Israeli...

    A tweet posted by Argentina's government office for human rights has been mocked online. The tweet reads: "Whatever your orientation, we're all part of the sexual diversity.#MakingVisible." It is followed by a picture with the motto: "Heterosexuality is part of sexual diversity." Many readers reacted with incredulity and asked if the official government account had been hacked. Others posted memes of people rolling their eyes. https://twitter.com/SDHArgentina/status/978255505209643008/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.com%2Fnews%2Fworld-latin-america-43557526 Most pointed out that a campaign to make people more visible is usually aimed at minorities and not those who are in the majority.

    If Mark Zuckerberg and a janitor who works at Facebook’s headquarters each received a speeding ticket while driving home from work, they’d each owe the government the same amount of money. Mr. Zuckerberg wouldn’t bat an eye. The janitor is another story. For people living on the economic margins, even minor offenses can impose crushing financial obligations, trapping them in a cycle of debt and incarceration for nonpayment. In Ferguson, Mo., for example, a single $151 parking violation sent a black woman struggling with homelessness into a seven-year odyssey of court appearances, arrest warrants and jail time connected to her...

    The discovery was made when the piglet was spotted next to its mother after she gave birth to eight young in the rural area of Santo Domingo in Santiago del Estero Province in northern Argentina. However, the human-like piglet died a few hours later due to breathing difficulties. Pig and goat breeders Walter Oscar Velez and wife Roxana Noemi Villarreal, who also produce charcoal at their farm, said that they are at a loss for an explanation. It is the latest in a number of horrific mutations in the country which is at the centre of a row over the...

    According to the Brazilian defense website Poder Aereo, the Argentinian government received a proposal from Paris for the acquisition of between 20 to 24 second-hand Dassault Mirage 2000C fighter jets. Assuming the veracity of the report, the deal will join a long and contrived story, as Buenos Aires has been attempting to find a new fighter jet for its Air Force for several years now. In the early 1980s, the Argentinian Air Force boasted a respectable fighter force, comprised of a mix of French and American models, all of them developed during the 1950s. Defensionem suggests that, at the time,...
