  • Mark Levin: “A Time To Stand”… (VIDEO)

    11/05/2018 8:21:30 AM PST · by a little elbow grease · 3 replies ^ | 11/5/18 | sundance
    Mark Levin took the time during his opening segment last night to frame the importance of the midterm election. President Trump will leave nothing on the battlefield; he is working, campaigning and fighting on our behalf. Now, with the election less than 24 hours away, it is time for us to stand and take action…
  • Gosnell Movie Hits Hard

    10/09/2018 11:47:55 PM PDT · by karnage · 23 replies
    I went to the red carpet premiere of "Gosnell" tonight, at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills -- within shrieking distance of many bastions of showbiz liberalism: talent agencies, law firms, movie studios. But the film itself was made without the support of the entertainment-industrial complex. In fact, it was financed largely by small donors on social media. It tells the tale, in deadpan policier fashion, of the investigation and trial of Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who initially attracted the attention of law enforcement not because he was killing born-alive infants, but rather because his unlicensed staff members were purchasing...

    22-year-old with same-sex attraction begs Synod: Don’t change Church teaching on homosexuality October 5, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Avera Maria Santo, a 22-year-old woman who experiences same-sex attractions, wrote a powerful open letter to the bishops of the Catholic Church about the topic of homosexuality, which is being discussed at the Youth Synod currently underway in Rome. LifeSiteNews has learned that the letter is circulating among the Synod Fathers. “As someone who has not only grown up in the Church, but has also come to love her and her teachings for myself, I would hate to see her teachings altered in any...

    A Church with almost two thousand years of history behind it has inevitably passed through many moments of crisis and many moments of reform. In each instance when crisis-as-cataclysm has been transformed into crisis-as-opportunity, "reform" has meant a return to the Church's roots in order to better engage the spirit and the needs of a given time and place. "Reform," in the history of the Catholic Church, has meant retrieving, and developing often forgotten elements of the Church's tradition. It has not meant rejecting the past, or severing the present and the future from the past. Genuine "reform" has always...

    A rabid bobcat recently attacked a Hart County grandmother in her yard, spurring a furious battle that ended with the cat’s strangulation death. “I thought, ‘Not today.’ There was no way I was going to die,” DeDe Phillips said Thursday as she recalled the attack that occurred June 7 at her home off Liberty Church Road. Phillips has begun a round of rabies shots at Northeast Georgia Medical Center. She also has a broken finger, and numerous bite and claw wounds to her hands, arms, chest and legs. “I’m very lucky,” the 46-year-old woman said. The unprovoked attack occurred about...

    Scores of LGBT activists, some of them Catholic, have praised Pope Francis for allegedly saying God “made” certain people to be homosexual. At the same time, however, a Catholic priest and director of a ministry to same-sex attracted persons, has posted a video rebuttal to the ‘God made you gay’ argument.  Over the weekend, Chilean church abuse victim Juan Carlos Cruz said that the pope told him in a recent meeting, “that you are gay does not matter. God made you like this [...] You have to be happy with who you are.” The Vatican has refused to confirm, deny, or...

    The second comes from The Atlantic’s Emma Green. Detailing the findings of a survey conducted by her magazine and the Public Religion Research Institute, she notes that 61 percent of white working-class men view college as a “risky gamble.” Green’s report contained this explanation: “The enduring narrative of the American dream is that if you study and get a college education and work hard, you can get ahead,” said Robert P. Jones, the CEO of PRRI. “The survey shows that many white working-class Amer­icans, especially men, no longer see that path available to them. . . . It is this sense of economic fatalism,...

    Wednesday’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left at least 17 people dead, again reminds us that all is not right in the land of the free and the home of the brave. If you have children in the public school system, you’ll probably offer up a special prayer tonight, and hug your child a little longer in the morning before you send him or her off to school. It takes courage to live in America these days – but not for reasons any of us anticipated just a few short years ago. We’ve long been suffering from...

    If the Kennedys were brave and bold, they would choose President Donald Trump as the 2018 recipient of the JFK Profiles in Courage Award. It won’t happen, of course, but it should. Right now, the Kennedy Foundation is soliciting nominations on the internet which no doubt will be filed and ignored. The award is the annual prize given to a public person, often a politician, who risked everything in pursuit of the greater good of the country. If that doesn’t fit Trump, then nothing does. The award is named after the title of the book, Profiles in Courage, written by...

    The Justice Department has given various congressional committees nearly 400 pages of additional text messages between two FBI officials who were removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. One of the newly discovered messages, lawmakers said, appeared to indicate that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page knew that charges would not be filed against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a result of the investigation into her email server -- before Clinton was interviewed by the bureau. [snip] One exchange between Strzok and Page, dated July 1, 2016, referenced then-Attorney General...

    Nobody displays it more vividly than the Hollywood pantheon.Approximately 15 years ago, I had a really sweet and cushy job. The job was easy. The hours very reasonable. The pay comfortable six figures. And, for people who did not know what the work environment was like, the job actually was quite prestigious. People begged me to help them get interviews there, to meet the power behind the throne, even just for phone access — just, please, the phone number. The problem was that I had to get out of there. The environment of the workplace was amazingly hostile to women....

    I guess now we’re not supposed to be fighting culture wars anymore – man, it’s so hard to keep up with these ever-changing new rules! I’m old enough to remember way back to 2016, before Trump got nominated, and I could have sworn Conservative Inc., was gung-ho for the whole culture war thing. But then Trump actually fought it, taking on the big, soft target that is the spoiled, semi-literate athletes who like to rub their contempt for the flag we love in our faces in the guise of woke wokedness. Now we suddenly discover that fighting back is horribly...

    The Kennedy Presidential Library’s annual “Profiles in Courage” Award for 2017 will go to former President Barack Obama. The Award, named after the 1957 Pulitzer Prize winning book ghost written for then Massachusetts Democratic Sen. John F. Kennedy, is given to individuals displaying extraordinary political courage by taking an unpopular course of action. The award ceremony will take place in May, when former First Daughter Caroline Kennedy and grandson of the late JFK, Jack Schlossberg, bestow the prize. “Faced with unrelenting adulation and widespread demands that he declare himself ‘president for life,’ President Obama courageously agreed to follow the law...

    Washington (CNN)Former President Barack Obama has been named the 2017 "Profile in Courage" award honoree by the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation. The foundation said Thursday it is recognizing Obama for "expanding health security for millions of Americans, restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba and leading a landmark international accord to combat climate change." The award, created in 1989, is given to a public official or group of public servants from any level of government each year "whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of 'Profiles in Courage,' President Kennedy's 1957 Pulitzer prize-winning book," according to...

    He'll bring pernil, platano and a pro-Trump message right to your doorstep. Jose Peralta, a deliveryman for the Bushwick Dominican restaurant Alex Luncheonette, is so into making America great again that customers in the neighborhood are calling him "The Trump Guy." He comes to work at the Knickerbocker Avenue eatery each day with his fire engine-red Trump baseball cap and a pin from the president's campaign. The battered Toyota Corolla he zips around the neighborhood in is plastered with bumper stickers for Trump and the far-right website InfoWars. "They tell me I was the only one in Brooklyn that supported...
