The relatives of 17-year-old Home Army nurse Danuta Siedzikowna and 42-year-old officer Feliks Selmanowicz attended the ceremonies on Sunday along with government officials. The burials were held in the northern city of Gdansk where the two were captured....

    Communication between the Holy See and the People’s Republic of China “continues with a spirit of goodwill on both parts” and aims to seek “realistic solutions for the good of everyone”. Watertight confirmation of the important step in the dialogue between Beijing and the Holy See is given by His Holiness’s Secretary of the State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, himself. In a wide-spanning interview with Stefania Falasca of Italian Catholic newspaper Avvenire, the cardinal from Vicenza who is head of Vatican diplomacy, outlines the criteria and objectives of the Holy See in its present relations with representatives of the Chinese government....

    I watched the 1951 movie, "I was a Communist for the FBI" for free on YouTube. It was distributed by Warner Brothers in 1951 and nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary. I urge everyone to watch it. The parallels to the manipulation taking place today are stunning. It is obvious that today's agitators are taking cues from the same playbook. I especially appreciated the section in which black steelworkers in Pittsburgh were manipulated into a wildcat strike and riots so that the Party could raise money for its own purposes. At one point they joked about raising hundreds of...

    A Crisis of Some Depth When one studies the Catholic news this week, it is easy to see that the foxes are abroad in the chicken house. Indeed, it is hard not to come to the conclusion that they have been deliberately placed in control of the chickens. At this stage in the game, only those who are willfully blind can deny this. One of the things that helped me to discover more of the real depth of the crisis facing the Church, was studying the life and times of the great Cardinal Josef Mindszenty of Hungary, about 10 years...

    Hong Kong’s retired bishop Joseph Zen Ze-kiun said on Monday that allowing the Chinese government to appoint Catholic bishops in the pope’s stead would mean “surrender.” The statement came after the city’s current bishop, John Tong Hon, said last Friday that the Chinese government and Vatican are in dialogue to discuss the contentious issue of appointing bishops in China. The official Catholic church of China is currently run by the government-controlled Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association, which appoints its own bishops, whereas the Vatican insists on its right to appoint bishops in the region, prompting the creation of underground churches which...

    MANILA — Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte called off a week-long ceasefire after communist guerrillas killed a government militiaman and failed to declare their own truce by a Saturday deadline he had imposed. It was the first irritant in what has been a blossoming relationship between Duterte, who calls himself a left-wing president, and the Maoist guerrillas, who have been waging one of Asia’s longest-running communist insurgencies. Both sides had agreed to resume peace talks next month in Norway, and it was not immediately clear whether the talks would be affected. After withdrawing his ceasefire order, Duterte issued a statement on...

But as the excitement unfolded, some activist leaders wondered where the crowds were. Cleveland has seen far smaller protests than those at other recent conventions, despite the nomination of Donald Trump eliciting a rage from progressives that rivals or exceeds their hatred of former President George W.

    The titles of “hero” or warrior” are probably two of the most appropriated titles today by those who are the least deserving of that distinction.

This is no truer than those screaming children at our universities along with their liberal professors screaming for muscle or those threatening riots if a particular candidate is elected President of the United States.

    The media’s wall-to-wall coverage of Donald Trump and the presidential horserace is a distraction from the main event. The point of the horserace—and of all politics—is to run a government capable of dealing effectively with the nation’s problems. But effective government is precisely what we don’t have. America’s greatest challenge is that it is burdened by a government that doesn’t work, and indeed is dysfunctional. Why is the nation so poorly governed? This is the question that we address in our new book, Relic. What we show is that the fundamentals of an answer can be traced to the Constitution—which,...

Queen Elizabeth II made the unguarded comments Tuesday while talking to a senior police officer at a rain-soaked garden party on the grounds of Buckingham Palace. With uncharacteristic bluntness — rarely if ever heard in public — the queen said the Chinese had not dealt properly with Barbara Woodward, the British envoy to China. “They were very rude to the ambassador,” Elizabeth said. …

The chief function of these editors is to get fired when they can't stop the crazy abuses of News star talent like Shaun King. Shaun King, the controversial columnist of The New York Daily News, has been accused of plagiarism. The alleged stealing of sources was discovered by The Daily...

    HAVANA — Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro delivered a valedictory speech Tuesday to the Communist Party that he put in power a half-century ago, telling party members he will soon die and exhorting them to help his ideas survive. “I’ll be 90 years old soon,” Castro said in his most extensive public appearance in years. “Soon I’ll be like all the others. The time will come for all of us, but the ideas of the Cuban Communists will remain as proof on this planet that if they are worked at with fervor and dignity, they can produce the material and...

    Weeks after President Barack Obama’s historic trip to Cuba, officials from the Communist island have ramped up their attacks on the U.S. On Monday, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez called Obama's visit "an attack on the foundation of our history, our culture and our symbols." "Obama came here to dazzle the non-state sector, as if he wasn't the representative of big corporations but the defender of hot dog vendors, of small businesses in the United States, which he isn't," Rodriguez said. The foreign minister’s response came days after Cuba President Raul Castro said that the United States is "the enemy" and...

    Bowie Resources Partners’ purchase of Peabody Energy Corp.‘s Twentymile Mine in Routt County has fallen through, and Peabody has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. Peabody, the world’s largest privately owned producer of coal, joins other major coal companies including Arch Coal, owner of the West Elk Mine in the North Fork Valley, in going bankrupt. Arch Coal also is in Chapter 11 reorganization. Bowie, owner of the Bowie No. 2 Mine near Paonia, had agreed to buy Twentymile and two mine properties in New Mexico for $358 million. But Peabody previously had said Bowie was still trying to find...

    A powerful new documentary takes a fresh look at the global “green” agenda, often marketed under the misleading label “sustainable development,” and exposes it for the dangerous assault on human freedom that it is. Beyond that, the film shows how the so-called “sustainability” movement of today is little more than a poorly re-packaged version of the murderous “red” communist agenda that supposedly fell along with the Soviet Union — after killing hundreds of millions of people along the way. The film, It’s Easy Being Green When You Have No Choice: Sustainable Development and the End of History, provides a great...
  • New York City Council Honors Convicted Soviet Spy Ethel Rosenberg

    The New York City Council Monday honored Ethel Rosenberg, the convicted Soviet spy who was executed for treason at the height of the Cold War. The proclamation honors Rosenberg on her 100th birthday for leading a 1935 strike against the National New York Packing and Supply Co. Eighteen years after the strike, Rosenberg, husband Julius, and her brother David Greenglass were indicted by the federal government for passing nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union. “Ethel Rosenberg was wrongfully executed in 1953 which resulted in her two young children becoming orphans,” said NYC Council Member Daniel Dromm said. “Although nothing can...

    In a 2010 interview with Catholic World Report , Cardinal Joseph Zen, S.D.B., the emeritus bishop of Hong Kong, wondered aloud about the Catholic Church’s reticence to acknowledge those who had been martyred by Chinese communists during the Maoists’ rise to power, and thereafter. “Why should we not publicize . . . those martyrs?” Cardinal Zen asked. The truth demands it. Self-respect requires it. Today’s Chinese Catholics, especially those who are persecuted for the fidelity to the Bishop of Rome, would be strengthened by the example of brave witnesses who held firm until the end, Zen suggested. I think Cardinal...
