  • Joe Crowley still running against Ocasio-Cortez as Working Families Party candidate

    US Representative Joe Crowley, who just two weeks ago lost the Democratic Party nomination for New York’s 14th Congressional district to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in dramatic fashion, looks set to remain on the November ballot as the candidate for the Working Families Party. Oops. **SNIP** New York’s election laws do not allow the WFP to remove Crowley from its ballot line. Nor is Crowley allowed to simply remove himself. The only option is for Crowley to somehow make himself ineligible. Or die. Crowley (somewhat understandably) is reluctant to do this. Having achieved the most dramatic primary win of the season and...
  • [Catholic Caucus] UK Catholic doctor: Are we witnessing ‘Vatican revolution’ against family?

    DUBLIN, August 23, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – An English family doctor has suggested that recent developments in the war against the family coming from the highest levels within the Catholic Church indicate the arrival of the final battle between God and Satan.  “Is this the final greatest historical confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, the Gospel and the anti-gospel,” said Dr Thomas Ward at a family conference this week running concurrent to the Vatican’s LGBT-affirming World Meeting of Families (WMOF) in Dublin, Ireland. “Frankly, are we at this moment seeing an intent at a Vatican revolution which would be a culmination...

    As you begin to understand world governments don’t have your best interests in mind — that enemies of the State could more aptly be called enemies of the globe’s corporate and banking elite — power comes sharply into focus. Those who actually hold the power control the world’s economies, and it’s clear the fates of over 7.4 billion souls now inhabiting the planet are, at best, the least of their concern. Of those at the top of food chain, so to speak, a small collection of families dictates both domestic and foreign policy — mainly through fuelling war and conflict...
  • Administration: 1,820 children reunited after border split

    SAN DIEGO — The Trump administration said Thursday that more than 1,800 children separated at the U.S.-Mexico border have been reunited with parents and sponsors but hundreds remain apart, signaling a potentially long wait for anguished families. The federal government was under a Thursday deadline to reunify more than 2,500 children separated from their parents under a new immigration policy designed to deter immigrants from coming here illegally. The policy quickly backfired amid global outrage from political and religious leaders and daily headlines about crying children taken from their parents. President Donald Trump ended the practice, but a federal judge...
  • Make Babies Great Again: Hungarian Fertility Rates Rise, Turns Back Demographic Decline

    Hungary’s pro-family culture has resulted in a rising fertility rate for married women which is “winding back the clock” on demographic decline — a trend once deemed irreversible in Europe and used by globalists to justify mass migration from the third world. “The country is not just experiencing a fertility spike; Hungary is winding back the clock on much of the fertility and family-structure transition that demographers have long considered inevitable,” writes the author of “Is Hungary Experiencing a Policy-Induced Baby Boom?” from the Institute for Family Studies website. “That’s unusual,” author Lyman Stone wrote, “as most countries around the...

    A former Huntsville City Schools teacher is in custody after police said he pulled out a gun at a protest in Big Spring Park. Lt.

Huntsville City Schools spokesperson Keith Ward confirmed that Sealy previously taught at Grissom High School. Ward added Sealy has not worked for the school system in “roughly two years.” Bond has not yet been set. Police say no shots were fired and no one was hurt.

    Okay, this one’s a doozy. Over the last few weeks, here’s what has happened: A photograph went viral, spawning a great left-wing outcry over the fact that children were being put in cages (see the photo here). The Left’s immediate response was to: Blame Donald Trump — This was wrong, since the practices at the border are in response to law, not merely “policy.” The law in question began with the Clinton administration (its history is explained here). Ask how Trump could let something like that which was pictured actually happen — This was wrong, because the photo was from...

    You had to see what came before Hayes: Chris Matthews spending a whole hour taking a victory lap over Trump’s latest order keeping families together, calling Trump a liar for saying there was a law against keeping them together. Hayes(show) comes on 8pm and he does the same for ~ 10 minutes then brings on Andrew Cuomo who says the order means nothing because its illegal to keep the kids with their parents (adult family members) and will be halted by a judge. Better yet Cuomo goes on to say he is suing the government for splitting up the families...

    "FACT CHECK: Are Democrats Responsible For DHS Separating Children From Their Parents?" "In an interview with NPR's Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep Tuesday, former President Barack Obama's domestic policy director, Cecilia Muńoz, stated unequivocally that separating children from their parents was not a policy the Obama administration followed. "The Obama administration did not do that, no. We did not separate children from their parents," Muńoz said. "This is a new decision, a policy decision put in place by the attorney general," which Muńoz said "puts us in league with the most brutal regimes in the world's history."https://www.npr.org/2018/05/29/615211215/fact-check-are-democrats-responsible-for-dhs-separating-children-from-their-pare

    The U.S. is the focus of international outrage for its policy of separating children from their parents and detaining them after they cross the border in search of asylum. But Canada also detains migrant children — and in some cases, restricts access to their asylum-seeking parents — despite the fact its stated policy is to do whatever possible to avoid it. Last year, 151 minors were detained with their parents in Canadian immigration holding centres. Eleven others were held in custody unaccompanied by an adult, according to the Canada Border Services Agency. CBSA holds people who are considered a flight...

    Families of Gaza Arabs killed during border riots received $500 each from Iran, Israel's Reshet Bet reported. According to the report, the money was distributed by Hamas at a Ramadan "break fast" meal held Thursday night in honor of the "martyrs'" families. Approximately 112 rioters have been killed since the riots began on March 30. Of those, over sixty were killed while protesting the US Embassy's move to Jerusalem on May 14, at least 50 of whom were Hamas terrorists. Last week, a 22-year-old female medic was killed during the riots. Initial reports claimed she was innocent and unfairly targeted...

    If you Google ‘Separated immigrant families’ you will find a ton of posts condemning the current policy of the US finding a temporary place for the children to live while their parents are detained after sneaking across the border together. In most or all of them Trump is condemned. The origin of this policy comes from The Flores Settlement(1997). The Flores Settlement Agreement (Flores) imposed several obligations on the immigration authorities, which fall into three broad categories: 1. The government is required to release children from immigration detention without unnecessary delay to, in order of preference, parents, other adult relatives,...

    The Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, has pledged that the World Meeting of Families will remain “an inclusive event, open to all families and family members” after a flood of reports concerning the Vatican and a former Irish president, a dissident Catholic and LGBT activist, washed up at his door.  Several news outlets have reported that Mary McAleese had hoped to speak at a conference next month to mark International Women’s Day that was to be held on Vatican grounds. But, when a list of proposed speakers that included McAleese was allegedly submitted to Cardinal Kevin Farrell, prefect of the...

    Five pictures featuring same-sex couples have been removed from a reissued booklet sent to Catholic parishes in preparation for the visit to Ireland next august of Pope Francis for a World Meeting of Families event. The text of the publication has also been edited. A line in the original booklet has now been removed. That line stated: “While the Church upholds the ideal of marriage as a permanent commitment between a man and a woman, other unions exist which provide mutual support to the couple. Pope Francis encourages us never to exclude but to accompany these couples also, with love,...

    The Mexican government has been sending thousands of Central American asylum seekers back to their conflict-ridden countries where they fear persecution, a new Amnesty International report claims. The report, based on a survey of nearly 500 people, said Mexico's National Migration Institute, INM, is violating the non-refoulement principle, an international law which bars a country to send back the asylum seekers in fear of persecution. Nearly 40 percent of those detained were in violation of non-refoulement, Amnesty International said in its report, whereas 75 percent of those detained by the INM were not informed of their right to seek asylum...

    CANADA, January 15, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – “Procreation is becoming a global public health concern, rather than a personal decision,” a feminist wrote for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in an article trashing "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines for having a fifth child. “It's not an exaggeration to say that the survival of our species depends” on population control, Kristen Pyszczyk wrote. Even though population control “carries with it associations with eugenics and other nasty historical events...we still need to talk about it.” The Gaines couple of HGTV fame announced the existence of their fifth child by posting a...

    PHOENIX — One of the state's three Republican legislative leaders has vowed he won't let the Trump tax cuts have a negative ripple effect on Arizona taxpayers. House Speaker J.D. Mesnard acknowledged that the linkage between federal tax laws and the state tax code means that what is in the federal law affects the deductions that Arizonans are allowed to take when computing their state income taxes. The state Department of Revenue figures those changes would automatically take an extra $250 million a year out of the pockets of individual and business taxpayers. Mesnard said he will push for changes...
