Vatican City, Sep 14, 2015 / 03:11 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In a new, wide-ranging interview Pope Francis spoke at length of the European refugee crisis – saying that incoming migrants are now filling the void left by a sterile continent that refuses to have children. “The migrant phenomenon is a reality…when there is an empty space, people look to fill it. If a country doesn't have children, migrants come to occupy that place,” the Pope said in a recent interview...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin condemned the West, including the United States, for eschewing Christian values and opting instead for a path to degradation. In his State of the Nation speech last month, Putin asserted that, Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. Russia has adopted new laws that ban homosexual propaganda and criminalizes the insulting of religious sensibilities. The law on religious sensibilities was approved in the wake of...

    Every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has stayed in the presidential suite on the 35th floor of the Waldorf Astoria New York in Manhattan. The accommodations run $4,000-$6,000 per night, hotel officials say, and feature souvenirs collected from past commanders in chief and security measures like bulletproof glass windows. Current and former White House officials have long considered the hotel and its staff as the best in the world at hosting the most powerful man in the world.

    June 1, 2015, Charles Blow, NYTimes, "It can take decades, or even a lifetime, to recover if recovery is even emotionally available for the survivor."Can the same can be said for child/teen victims of emotional and physical abuse they experience when their unskilled, immature single moms irresponsibly introduce them to a life filled with struggle and pain in a community populated by depressed people? Quoting a January 2011 LAWeekly interview with 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar: "Lamar's parents moved from Chicago to Compton in 1984 with all of $500 in their pockets. "My mom's one of 13 siblings, and they...

    Earlier this week, President Barack Obama banned the sale of certain military-style equipment to police departments. Brian Kilmeade reported tonight on "The Kelly File" that Obama also thinks that police officers should have "softer looking" uniforms. Kilmeade explained that Obama thinks that police officers are "making things worse" when they show up to inner city communities wearing military-style equipment and riot gear. "They're concerned about the helmet. They're concerned about the shield. It's sending the wrong message," Kilmeade stated. "I used to think from the civilian point of view that that would be a reason not to riot, because the...

    Here in front of Independence Hall, I call for the president to obey the law, Paul said when he took the microphone, as hundreds of his supporters shouted President Paul! President Paul! President Paul! outside Independence Hall after a separate event inside the Constitution Center across the street. The crowd went wild. The court said last week that it is illegal to collect all of your phone records all of the time without a warrant with your name on it, Paul said. I call on the president today to immediately end the bulk collection of our phone records.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Columnist and author of Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican, Ann Coulter said that Ted Cruz and Scott Walker are the only palatable presidential candidates and that the candidacies of Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina are a waste of time on Mondays Hannity on the Fox News Channel. Coulter re-iterated her point that Republicans shouldnt let liberal moderators host their debates, she then stated most importantly, please Republican primary voters, do not even consider someone who has not been a governor. Maybe a senator, but at least a governor. That is just wasting everybodys time, energy and money...

    Growing up without a father has a far greater statistical correlation to gun violence than most sociological factors, including poverty and gun ownership, a statistical analysis of gun homicides in the U.S. shows. Recent mass murders have given rise to a call for gun control, for the restriction of gun sales. The argument is that fewer guns would result in fewer murders. The data imply otherwise, concluded Dr. Frederick Costello, an engineering consultant in Virginia, after analyzing firearm-related murders committed in all 50 states in 2010 at the request of state Delegate Ken Plum (D-36th). Virginia is one of 41...

    War should occur only when America is attacked, when it is threatened or when American interests are attacked or threatened. I dont think the situation in Syria passes that test. Even the State Department argues that theres no military solution here thats good for the Syrian people, and that the best path forward is a political solution. The United States should not fight a war to save face. I will not vote to send young men and women to sacrifice life and limb for stalemate. I will not vote to send our nations best and brightest to fight for anything...

    The dead bodies found every day in towns and villages across Syria bearing marks of execution style killing and torture are the grim evidence of mounting war crimes and other abuses being committed not just by government forces, but also by armed opposition groups some but not all more or less loosely affiliated with the Free Syrian Army (FSA)1 in the context of the countrys bitter internal armed conflict. Such groups are summarily killing people with a chilling sense of impunity, and the death toll continues to rise as more towns and villages come under the control of...

    HBOs Bill Maher thinks the Department of Homeland Security has outlived its usefulness. On Fridays episode of Real Time, Maher and his guests debated the DHSs usefulness during a discussion of the debate between Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul and New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie. There was a huge verbal slap by the Republican Party this week between Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, and Rand Paul, Maher said. And it was sort of I think a fight for the soul of the Republican Party where theyre going to go because, OK, next month is the 12th...

    Texas GOP Rep. Ron Paul says that, although he respects House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryans attempts to cut the budget, he doesnt believe the Wisconsin Republican's plan goes far enough. Paul also said Wednesday on MSNBCs Morning Joe the Medicare system is going to run into a brick wall before the proposal can help alleviate the nations fiscal crisis. Well, I give him a lot of credit. You know, I get frustrated because I dont think its going to last that long to deal with it, because I keep thinking the way we spend money, and the way inflation's...
