  • Catholic spokesman evades question about whether Catholics and Muslims worship the same God

    Catholic spokesman evades question about whether Catholics and Muslims worship the same God Tim Staples can’t be faulted for this. The problem lies not with him, but with the false teachings of Vatican II about Islam, which put Catholics in an impossible position. There are numerous reasons why Catholics and Muslims do not worship the same God. I explain some below, and more here. But the ecumenical council says otherwise, and so either its teachings must be accepted and justified, or Catholics find themselves in a crisis of authority that calls into question some of the foremost dogmas of their...

    It's easy to tell people that EVs are the future, but the reality is that they're currently more expensive and have less range than a gasoline-engined car. But according to a survey conducted by Castrol (yes, the motor oil company), Americans aren't completely turned off by electric powertrains. They're just waiting for the prices to come down and the ranges to increase.

    NANCY Pelosi claimed she was tricked into breaking coronavirus rules to get her hair done in a salon "set-up." Pelosi was criticized for getting her hair done in a closed California salon on Monday without a mask – but now, she wants the hairdressers to apologize. On Wednesday, the House Speaker said the whole thing was a "set-up," claiming the owner of eSalon, Erica Kious, misled her. “I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up,” Pelosi told reporters at an event in San Francisco’s Noe Valley. “I take responsibility for trusting the word of the...

    Six out of every 10 registered U.S. voters believe the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is yet to come in the United States, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. A strong majority of 59% of voters believe that the country has yet to see the worst of the virus, while just 20% believe the worst effects of it are behind us. A further 22% expressed uncertainty....

    Protesters surrounded Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s Greensboro, North Carolina, home on Sunday, one day after the far-left Shutdown D.C. held a protest at his Washington, DC, residence. The protests follow Democrat claims last week that the Trump administration is trying to interfere with vote-by-mail efforts in the 2020 presidential election. “This is what democracy looks like,” protesters chanted as they flooded the neighborhood and disrupted the Wyndham Championship taking place at a nearby golf course. “We need to keep the pressure on,” protestor Jim Mencius said in a Greensboro News & Record report.

    NPR Morning Edition ^ | 8/14/20 | DOMENICO MONTANARO
    Democrat Joe Biden's lead has expanded to double-digits against President Trump in the presidential election, an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll finds. Biden now leads Trump 53% to 42%, up from an 8-point advantage at the end of June. The change comes as 71% of Americans now see the coronavirus as a real threat, up significantly over the last several months, as more than 167,000 Americans have died and more than 5 million have become infected with the virus, as of Friday. And yet, more than a third of Americans (35%) say they won't get vaccinated when a vaccine comes available; 60%...

    The Hill ^ | 8/11/2020 | Jonathan Easley
    Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leads President Trump by 10 points in a new national poll released Tuesday. The latest Monmouth University survey finds Biden at 51 percent support, compared to Trump at 41 percent. Four percent of voters are undecided, while 2 percent support Libertarian Jo Jorgensen, 1 percent back Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins and 1 percent support other candidates. The race is slightly tighter than the same poll found in late June, when Biden held a 52 to 39 percent lead. However, the 3-point shift in Trump’s favor is within the margin of error. The former...

    President Trump pulled an inside straight to win in 2016, and now he needs another one. The good news for Trump is that his approval rating has stopped falling recently. The bad news is that it has stabilized in the low 40s. Election-watcher Harry Enten points out that no president since Harry Truman has won with anything like Trump’s negative net approval rating. Truman won at –6, while incumbents who lost (Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George H. W. Bush) averaged out at about –13, roughly where Trump’s number is. The presidents who won reelection averaged an approval rating of...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci threw a wild first pitch a week ago to open the MLB season during a pandemic. His pitch for the Yankees and Nationals game missed the plate by a safe social-distancing measure and he delivered a joke about it the next morning. Now, Fauci is giving a more detailed explanation of why his first pitch was so far off. It comes down to “a mishap on my part,” the nation’s leading infectious disease expert said. Fauci, 79, joked last week that he was a shortstop growing up and thought he was supposed to throw to first base....

    D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s (D) most recent mask mandate, which orders three-year-olds to cover their faces, exempts lawmakers and government employees while they are “on duty.” Bowser issued the order Wednesday, mandating everyone over the age of two wear a mask in both indoor and outdoor settings. “Under the new Mayor’s Order on masks, people must wear a mask when they leave their homes if they are likely to come into contact with another person for more than a fleeting moment,” the mayor’s office states. While masking mandates across the nation, and in D.C., typically contain several exceptions — exempting...

    A new poll in Florida shows Democratic challenger Joe Biden opening up a double-digit lead over President Trump as new cases of the coronavirus surge in the battleground state. The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee tops Trump 51-38 percent among registered voters in Florida, according to a Quinnipiac University survey conducted July 16-20 and released on Thursday.

    Fox News ^ | 23 July 2020 | Dana Blanton
    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump in the battleground states of Michigan, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania, according to Fox News statewide registered voter surveys. Biden benefits from strong support among women, nonwhite voters, and those living in suburban areas, while Trump suffers from a lackluster performance among men and White voters. In each state’s head-to-head matchup, the president underperforms both his 2016 vote share and his current job approval rating -- and Biden’s edge is larger than the survey’s margin of sampling error. At the same time, a lot could change between now and the election, which is...

    President Trump and Joe Biden are in a dead heat in Texas, with a new Quinnipiac University poll showing the presumptive Democratic nominee with a slight edge, 45 percent to 44 percent, within the poll’s margin of error. The survey, released Wednesday, compares to another Q poll in early June when the race was equally tight and voters backed Trump 44 percent to Biden’s 43 percent.

    Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has built a commanding 15-point national lead over President Trump in his bid for the White House, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The survey, which was released on Sunday, found that 55 percent of registered voters say they would vote for the former vice president if the 2020 election were held today, while 40 percent say they'd back Trump. The findings represent a substantial shift in support for Biden, who led Trump by just 2 points in a similar poll released in March and by 10 points in May. The drop...

    President Donald Trump's political advisers have bluntly told him he can't win the November election if the campaign is about him, and for weeks they unsuccessfully urged him to pivot to a new strategy focused on his general election opponent, Joe Biden. Trump finally appeared to heed the advice Tuesday, although the setting and the tone of the political broadside may not have been what his advisers had envisioned. Trump's remarks, which mentioned Biden 31 times, were monotone, and the backdrop — the White House Rose Garden — was a break from longtime presidential efforts to separate official and re-election...

The Quinnipiac University poll – which was conducted July 9-13 – shows the former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee with 52 percent support among registered voters, with Trump at 37 percent support. BIDEN LEADS IN NEW SWING STATE POLL BUT MAJORITY SAY 'SECRET TRUMP VOTERS' COULD TILT ELECTION Biden’s lead is almost double the 8-point advantage he held in Quinnipiac’s previous survey, which was conducted in mid-June. And it tops...

    President Donald Trump is facing broad disapproval for his management of the two major crises gripping the nation, with two-thirds of Americans giving him low marks for both his response to the coronavirus pandemic and his handling of race relations, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday. Evaluation of Trump's oversight of the COVID-19 crisis reached a new low since ABC News/Ipsos began surveying on the coronavirus in March, with 67% disapproving of his efforts. One-third of the country approves of the president's oversight of the pandemic. Over nearly four months of polling, Trump's approval has mostly held...
