    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Yesterday on this program I discussed the 1980 election, Ronaldus Magnus and Jimmy Carter, and in it I described the election night coverage that night and how I will never forget it. Because this was the election that they called it for Reagan before California had even closed the polls, it was such a landslide.  Yet the last polling data going into the election in 1980 had Jimmy Carter winning by nine points.  And so Cookie went back to the archives and got a bunch of audio from John Chancellor, Judy Woodruff, Tom Brokaw and David Brinkley...

    (Photo: Reuters/Social Media Website via Reuters TV)An Islamic State militant holds a gun while standing behind what are said to be Ethiopian Christians in Wilayat Fazzan, in this still image from an undated video made available on a social media website on April 19, 2015. The video purportedly made by Islamic State and posted on social media sites on Sunday appeared to show militants shooting and beheading about 30 Ethiopian Christians in Libya. Reuters was not able to verify the authenticity of the video but the killings resemble past violence carried out by Islamic State, an ultra-hardline group which...

    Forget about ghosts and goblins on Halloween; how about a walk through a dark cemetery where dead people who once walked the earth appear out of nowhere and talk to you about life and death, heaven and hell?The “Back from the Dead Cemetery Walk” in Emmitsburg, Maryland has provided such an experience every October for the past 12 years. Held in the historic cemetery on the grounds of the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Shrine, it’s the brainchild of Fr. Brian Nolan, chaplain for Mount Saint Mary’s University.The idea for the walk was inspired by a haunted house at Mount Saint...

    October 21, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Once again a leading opponent of Catholic moral teachings, this time Hillary Clinton, has cited Pope Francis to give credibility to her actions. In a Fox news interview, Fr. Gerald Murray gives clear reasons why some of Clinton's remarks at the Al Smith dinner were highly inappropriate and that she should have used the event to publicly disown the anti-Catholic bigotry in her staff emails revealed by Wikileaks. Fr. Murray said, "there should have been a statement" by Mrs. Clinton "right at the start" of her remarks at the Al Smith dinner, "saying, 'I disown everything that was read in...

    American Thinker ^ | October 22, 2016 | William and Martha Dodd
    This past summer, Hillary Clinton made this stunning and chilling statement in an interview on CNN: "deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs have to be changed." She did not specify in that interview which faith's religious beliefs had "to be changed." But now, thanks to WikiLeaks-released emails from the John Podesta's server, we have the context and intent of this statement. Mrs. Clinton was specifically referring to the religious beliefs of the Catholic Church.  The Democratic Party is on record via Podesta exchanges that it would like to and is already working to sabotage the Catholic Church from within to...

    LAS VEGAS, Nevada, October 21, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Before the lights were out on Wednesday night's final presidential debate stage, partisan groups were frantically spinning candidates' words and "fact-checking" candidates' claims. It has become common for "fact-checking" groups to arbitrate what is true and what is false. But the "fact-checkers" themselves are often biased and do not always present the truth.  Such is the case with some "fact-checking" outlets Thursday claiming that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump lied Wednesday night when he said Democratic rival Hillary Clinton supports unrestricted abortion throughout pregnancy.

    While the tradition of the Alfred E. Smith dinner to invite the Republican and Democrat nominee to raise money for charity is admirable, it was disturbing to see Timothy Cardinal Dolan laughing and joking with Hillary Clinton less than twenty-four hours after Hillary announced she supports abortion up to the moment of birth.  Worse, when he spoke at the end, he made a vague oblique reference to the life of the unborn when he said some of the money raised would help poor women give birth. I understand that the dinner is to raise money and everyone tries to...

    It was déjà vu all over again when Fox News debate moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump the question that has dominated the news media ever since, drawing new attacks on Trump from political establishment stooges everywhere. Back in the spring, during the primaries, Trump was asked if he would sign a pledge to support whoever the eventual GOP nominee might be, pledging not to challenge that nominee and, in the end, to support that nominee.  Trump, along with every other GOP primary candidate, agreed to take that pledge, only to watch other GOP candidates refuse to keep that pledge...

    Eight years ago, doctors in Mexico disconnected an infant named Ximena Galvez from life support, convinced that she was brain dead.On Sunday, Ximena was giving Pope Francis a big hug during Mass in St. Peter’s Square.The eight-year-old’s incredible story came into the spotlight as JosĂ© SĂĄnchez del RĂ­o, a martyr of Mexico’s Cristero War, was declared a saint of the Church.Paulina Galvez, Ximena’s mother, is convinced it was through the intercession of St. Jose—affectionately called St. Joselito by Mexicans—that her daughter was spared death. And the Church agrees with her, using the medically-unexplainable healing as a sign from God that...

    As you would expect from a first-rate journalist, Fox News’ Chris Wallace held the candidates’ feet to the fire in last night’s third and final presidential debate. ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT From the pro-life perspective, it was particularly useful that Wallace said he would “drill down” on the question of the Supreme Court “because the next president will almost certainly have at least one appointment and likely or possibly two or three appointments which means that you will in effect determine the balance of the court for what could be the next quarter century.”And so he did. The results were classic Hillary...

Notably, in his selection for cardinals from among the United States bishops, Francis named the recently appointed archbishop of Chicago, Blaise Cupich, a man with impeccable liberal credentials. He also broke with protocol by choosing Archbishop William Tobin of Indianapolis, a relatively small archdiocese never before considered...

    Maybe it takes a Torah scholar and religious Jew to help us understand the roots of the inverted values that animate Western civilization. For over ten years, author and radio talk show host Dennis Prager taught the first five books of the Bible verse-by-verse at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles. According to Prager there is no greater concept in the Torah than that of “distinction,” or, put another way, the clear separation God makes between certain things: God and man, animal and human, life and death, sacred and profane, good and evil, male and female. He even...

Trump, politicking horrifically, only deepened the wound by vocalizing Hillary’s claim in his and his surrogates’ subsequent interviews.But, unlike Trump was able to point out, Hillary is no “saint girl” either. Mrs. Clinton has been accused of threatening, smearing and targeting women her husband has sexually assaulted or carried out consensual affairs with. 1. Hillary...
