    CBS "News" ^ | UPDATED ON: MARCH 20, 2019 / 10:56 PM / CBS NEWS
    New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced Thursday all assault weapons and "military-style automatic weapons" would be banned in the wake of last week's mosque shootings in Christchurch that left 50 people dead. Ardern said she expects the new law to be in place by April 11 and buy-back programs will be put in place for banned weapons. Ardern said the shooting suspect had purchased his weapons legally and a "simple online purchase" of 30-round magazines had enhanced their capacity. Ardern said all semi-automatic used during the attack would be banned. "I strongly believe that the vast majority of legitimate...

    Eight reporters and editors at U.S. tax-funded TV and Radio Marti, which broadcasts in Spanish to communist Cuba, have been fired after a report aired portraying left-wing billionaire George Soros in an unflattering light. The Washington watchdog Judicial Watch explained the firings came at the request of scandal-plagued Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey. Menendez, who has been accused of hiring prostitutes and misusing funds for personal benefit, demanded an investigation that resulted in the dismissals, Judicial Watch said. Judicial Watch said that at Menendez’s request, Obama appointee John Lansing of the U.S. Agency for Global Media used “Stalinist...

    Communism and the Fake Vatican Summit Conceal Homosexual Agenda by David Martin When the Vatican announced in September that it would be holding its February summit on clerical sex-abuse, Catholics throughout the world were under the impression that this was all about the Protection of Minors in the Church, not realizing that the Vatican’s homosexual network had generated the event to protect its own interests.In hindsight, we see that the summit was all about concealing the Vatican’s collusion with homosexuality under the guise of “protecting minors.” The fact is that the issue of homosexual priests—the very cause of the sex-abuse...

    West Virginia teachers will continue to strike into Wednesday, although Republican Gov. Jim Justice has vowed since January he will not sign into law an education bill allowing charter schools and education savings accounts in the state. The New York Times, however, reported the teachers’ strike led to an immediate “victory” when the West Virginia House of Delegates voted Tuesday to table the bill. Similarly, the Associated Press reported union leaders were celebrating the decision of the West Virginia House of Delegates to kill the education bill that led to the strike: The House just voted on a motion made...

    The cardinal said previous Vatican interventions had resulted in a 'mockery' The Archbishop of Merida has ruled out Vatican mediation of the Venezuelan crisis after president Nicolas Maduro made public a letter to Pope Francis requesting intervention. “I think the circumstances say no. Why? Because it’s a call with a blank sheet of paper, but to talk about what, there’s no prior agenda,” Cardinal Baltazar Enrique Porras Cardozo of Merida told Radio Continental, an Argentine news station, on February 6. The cardinal, who is also serving as apostolic administrator of the Caracas archdiocese, noted that on prior occasions when the...

    Why is the Vatican defending Venezuela’s illegitimate president? anuary 18, 2019 (American Thinker) – In the wake of Venezuela's President Nicolás Maduro swearing himself into office after a fraudulent election, the global consensus is that the regime ruling in Caracas is illegitimate. It's so bad that the news accounts call the Maduro regime "isolated." Brazil, led by President Jair Bolsonaro, not only refused to recognize the regime, but openly recognized the constitutionally mandated succession of the Venezuelan National Assembly's leader, Juan Guaidó. That's who's president to his country. Other nations, such as Paraguay, cut ties to the regime and pulled their envoys. The United States and Canada have come close...

    Ultimately, finding an optimal tax rate for the super-rich is a moral and political issue as much as an economic one. Last week, when 60 Minutes aired an interview with newly sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman New York congressperson caused an uproar with what, by Washington standards, seemed a rather immodest proposal. Asked whether an expansion of public investment in green technologies would require raising taxes, she cited history.

    Liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is rolling out a new plan that would potentially allow the city government to seize buildings of landlords who force tenants out -- a plan his opponents say amounts to “straight communism.” De Blasio, in his State of the City address on Thursday, announced he wants to take action against landlords who try to force tenants out by making the property unliveable -- and pulled out an executive order to create a Mayor’s Office to Protect Tenants. He said that in the event the government intervenes, the buildings would then be controlled...

    Vatican, Venezuela bishops play ‘good cop/bad cop’ with Maduro ROSARIO, Argentina - A day after the bishops of Venezuela declared the new presidency of Nicolas Maduro “illegitimate,” Pope Francis sent a Vatican representative to his inauguration. The successor of the late Hugo Chavez thanked Monsignor George Koovakod for his “bravery” for coming.Many observers say the apparent contrast isn’t a matter of the Vatican and the bishops being at odds, but rather a classic “good cop, bad cop” diplomatic maneuver.Maduro took office for the second time on Thursday, amidst criticism from the international community of snap elections in May.

And, ever since then, Communism/Socialism has had an unbroken record: over 170 years of utter failure, everywhere it was tried. Yet, the communist-inspired philospher—the Socialist—still beatifically calls for world-wide socialism. In these days of an American Trump, and a wild jackass, anti-America, “Resistance,” the Socialist, smiley-face, “look” has changed. It alternates between bug-eyed madness and fanged violence. “Socialists may not be able to claim experience, learning, smarts, or success. But they make up for all that by a boundless certitude.......
