    The Arizona Cardinals are set to hire Kliff Kingsbury as their new head coach, according to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports. In December, Kingsbury was named offensive coordinator at the University of Southern California after being fired from his head-coaching role at Texas Tech. Following the conclusion of the NFL regular season, the Cardinals and New York Jets had expressed interest in hiring Kingsbury for their head-coaching vacancies. However, the Trojans reportedly did not initially grant Kingsbury permission to interview with either club. He went on to eventually meet with both teams.

    ... Four black coaches were fired Sunday or Monday, including the Jets’ Todd Bowles, who was let go shortly after his team’s final loss Sunday. The Jets had a 14-34 record in the last three seasons under Bowles. Marvin Lewis, who had been at the helm of the Cincinnati Bengals since 2003, was fired Monday. Though he had resurrected the moribund Bengals and took them to the playoffs multiple times, he never won a playoff game and this season was Cincinnati’s third consecutive one with a losing record. Also fired Monday was Denver Broncos Coach Vance Joseph, who had presided...

    Michael Voris talks to Henry SireOn the latest episode of Mic'd Up, Michael Voris interviews Henry Sire, the author of the thoroughly researched book The Dictator Pope. When asked about the impact of the explosive testimony of Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò, Sire answers that Pope Francis is a "completely extraordinary man for the cardinals to have chosen," adding, "If they'd known what sort of man he was, they wouldn't have voted for him." He continues, "The thing is, we've had this extraordinary situation covered up by the media who've promoted him as this great reformer – which he isn't at...

    Cardinal Makes False Distinctions to Justify Mortal Sin Perugia Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti, the president of the Italian bishops and an uncritical follower of Pope Francis, used a talk about Amoris Laetitia at the pro-gay World Meeting of Families (August 24) to promote mortal sin. Bassetti came up with the idea to distinguish between "good mortal sin" which he called "irregularity", and "bad mortal sin" saying that "not every irregularity is a mortal sin”. According to, Bassetti went on claiming that what he called "irregularity" did apparently "not exist in the past” as if fornication was something new. Bassetti denied...

    It’s like this:There is no hell; unsaved souls are simply annihilated. God made you”gay”, thus the all good God makes souls to commit mortal sin, or else sodomy is not a sin. Persons living in notorious adulterous relationships are sometimes doing the best God can expect from them in concrete circumstances and sometimes they should be allowed to commit sacrilege by receiving Holy Communion. These are all positions attributed to Francis. The first two are alleged to be spoken by Francis himself, the other is contained in a mealy-mouthed footnote in an ostensibly magisterial document. These are all positions...

    Rumors are gathering in Rome that it might soon come to the convening of a consistory to create new cardinals. Cardinal appointments always mean a redesign of the elective body for a possible conclave. Next Saturday, a decent consistory will take place, where, according to Jan Hendrik Stens (Domradio), "surprises might be possible". Currently, according to the electoral code for a conclave, which provides for a maximum of 120 papal electors, five elective seats are free. Pope Francis could forgive these and keep a few more "already in stock,” as in the course of next year, five more seats will...

    Cardinal Reinhard Marx, chairman of the German Episcopal Conference and close advisor of Pope Francis, has told the German media that “one must encourage priests” to give encouragement to homosexual unions, which could include public blessings that would take a “liturgical” form. Marx was asked in a radio interview yesterday why the Catholic Church “does not always move forward when it comes to demands from some Catholics regarding, for example, the ordination of female deacons, the blessing of homosexual couples, or the abolition of compulsory celibacy [for priests].” Marx responded that “closer pastoral care” must be given to homosexuals, adding...

    If you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl but you can’t stand the NFL take-a-knee protests, you may want to root for the Philadelphia Eagles. Not a single Eagles player sat or knelt during the national anthem, one of just seven teams with perfect non-kneeling records, in a season that saw 684 such incidents, according to a study released Thursday by Sports Pundit. The other Super Bowl LII team, the New England Patriots, landed in the middle of the pack with 17 incidents of anthem sitting or kneeling, wedged between the Buffalo Bills with 16 and the Cleveland Browns with...

    Baseball players don’t always go into broadcasting or managing after their MLB career is finished. Former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Anthony Reyes took a different path, deciding to pick up a hose and become a firefighter in Los Angeles County. And as an L.A. County firefighter, he’s now reportedly on the front lines of the California wildfires, working with many others to try and contain them.

    The St. Louis Cardinals and Fox Sports Midwest have made it a yearly tradition to honor veterans with Military Appreciation Night at Busch Stadium and their This One’s For You telecast. This year was no different, and it provided several memorable moments for veterans who served and their families. Among those moments was a ceremonial first pitch that’s impossible not to get emotional watching. Clarence Adelhardt, a 99-year-old veteran of World War II and longtime Cardinals fans, was called upon to deliver the pitch, and did so with incredible spirit as the crowd showered him with their appreciation.

    Because it includes Lance Berkman, who believes Christian things. I've told you this all along. Gay activism isn't really about homosexuals and their "rights." It never has been. They're just useful props. It is, and always has been, about marginalizing biblical Christianity. And it's working beautifully. Here's the gameplan: 1. Establish homosexuals as an oppressed minority grievance group. Check. 2. Establish the idea of "pride" for being gay. Check. 3. Pressure major corporations and other societal institutions to join in the celebration of "pride" on threat of boycotts, demonstrations and negative press if they don't. Check. 4. Get in the...

    The New York Times reported last summer that the Cardinals were the subject of a federal investigation in connection with multiple illegal breaches of the Astros’ proprietary computer network, Ground Control. Correa was ultimately fired by the Cardinals in July and was later charged. At the time of his plea, Correa claimed that his to access Ground Control was due to concern that former Cardinals scouting director Jeff Luhnow had taken proprietary information with him upon being hired by the Astros as general manager. Per Barron, the court denied a request that would’ve allowed Correa to subpoena documents from the...
