    Religion News Service is reporting that: "Cardinal Walter Kasper, one of Pope Francis’ closest advisers, has sought to downplay the pontiff’s scathing critique of the Curia earlier this week. Kasper, who previously led the Vatican body responsible for promoting Christian unity, said the pope was asking the Curia, or Vatican administration, to examine their conscience in a bid to promote spiritual renewal. The German cardinal, joined by Argentine Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, said Francis was asking the Curia to set an example. 'The fundamental thing is he wants spiritual reform of the Curia,' Kasper told the Italian daily Corriere della Sera...

    Thursday, December 25, 2014 Every Christmas Now Comes With Muslim Terrorism Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Muslim Terrorism has become as much of a Christmas tradition for Christians in the West, as it already was for Christians in the Muslim world, where Somali Muslim gunmen attacked a Christmas party at an African Union base. A Somali Muslim attempted to bring terrorism into the United States by bombing a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland in 2010. Mohamed Osman Mohamud (twice the Mohammed for twice the mayhem) had a simple goal, "I want whoever is attending that...

    Cop-basher surprised by police anger. But don't hold your breath waiting for de Blasio to resign. Radical leftists rarely give up power without a fight. Cop-bashing New York mayor Bill de Blasio seems genuinely surprised at the ferocious backlash against him in light of the execution-style weekend killing of two local cops. After spending the past year in office attacking police, the mayor is now scrambling to put the pin back into the grenade he threw into the local body politic. His crusade against the police goes back at least to his election campaign last year when he caustically criticized...

    Holder and Obama prefers the company of uber race-baiter Al Sharpton. It is this trio of men, along with New York's equally feckless Mayor, Bill de Blasio, who have cultivated the "us against them" mentality Another seemingly justified police shooting near Ferguson, MO briefly followed a sadly predictable script. In nearby Berkeley, a white police officer, aged 34, fired three shots, killing black American Antonio Martin, aged 18. The officer was responding to a report of stealing at a Mobil on the Run gas station. Martin allegedly pulled a 9mm handgun on the six-year veteran, who stumbled backwards as he...

The United States of America has been overthrown by communist enemies within who have waged a decades-long, steady infiltration of every area of power and influence in our nation.

    The open carry movement existed in Texas before C.J. Grisham was set upon by a Temple police officer in rural Bell County.  Grisham was eventually convicted of "interfering with police duties" after a second jury trial.  He paid a $2,000 fine.  Many who have watched the video of the event think the police officer is the one who should have been reprimanded.  The video went viral, and Grisham's zeal for open carry has blossomed into thousands of armed Texans marching to demand their second amendment rights. Texas is one of only six states that mostly ban the open carry...

Last week he announced that socialist medicine was too expensive for Vermont. Not even Johnathan Gruber could save the single payer dreams of Vermont socialists. The fact is socialist single payer is too expensive for the people of Vermont. The state has an annual budget of $2.7 billion. Socialist single payer would have added $1.6-2.5 billion to the budget with the latter end of projections more likely. Doubling state expenditures means doubling taxes, with an 8% income...

    Since The Resident’s unexpected and unethical decision to unilaterally discard a half-century of history and reopen diplomatic relations with the Castro brothers’ prison colony known as Cuba, a particularly destructive claim has resurfaced, one that merits careful analysis and rejection. For decades now, the Left has spouted a peculiar claim – that Cuba is poor because of our 54-year-long embargo against the communist country. If the reader has compassion for the suffering denizens of that miserable island, this has to be a strong argument, but it’s wrong – utterly without merit, in fact – for several critical reasons.

    New York Mayor Bill De Blasio needs to resign. He has failed the city. And yes, he does bear some responsibility for the murders of two police officers in his city. He ran for Mayor on an anti-cop campaign. Al Sharpton is one of his best buddies. De Blasio's paranoia has him thinking his police are spying on him. He's encouraged the anti-cop protesters and has lost control of the city. He's handed it over to them. De Blasio tried to pin blame for much of the unrest on the press: He said utterance of such slogans was disproportionately reported...

According to the article, the “U.S. birthrate fell for the sixth straight year in 2013 to an all-time low.” The writer then alarmingly states that, “this is really bad news for our economy, our society, and all of civilization.” We are reminded by the author that...

    Obama's confidential adviser on all matters Islamic, Mohamed Allah-dork, is disgusted with Obama's recent attack on North Korea's internet because the methods He used were contrary to true Islamic doctrine. Concerned that his silence might be viewed as agreement with Obama's methods, Allah-dork decided to divulge what really happened and how. Mohamed Allah-dork Great technological sophistication was needed to take down North Korea's internet. Therefore, experts who had created the ObamaScare website, together with experts from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), managed the project. Together, they provided an elegant solution which, unlike the ObamaScare website, worked perfectly (if only briefly) on the second attempt. First, all of the glitches thus far identified in the ObamaScare...

A state wildlife official boarded Yates’ vessel and determined that 72 red groupers (of a 3,000-fish catch) were undersized, issued a civil citation and ordered the fish to be confiscated. When Yates returned to port, armed agents inspected his catch and found only 69 undersized fish.

    Without fanfare, Governor Kasich signed H.B. 234 into law yesterday, 19 December, 2014.   While the gun law reform bill did not make all the changes that second amendment supporters desired, it made substantial improvements in the law, and was broadly supported in the legislature.  Governor Kasich signed it as part of a package of 40 bills (pdf): Am. Sub. H.B. 234 (Grossman, Becker) revises the law governing firearms. This was reflected by the large vote margins for passage of the bill; 24-6 in the Senate, 69-16 in the House.

    The oil price drop is really gutting Obama’s green agenda The latest falling oil prices to $55.96 (West Texas Intermediate), dropping from a high of $105 per barrel in June 2014, as a result of increased domestic oil production from fracking, is making the price of $150 per barrel of renewables look ridiculously expensive, not counting the wasted government subsidies in bankrupt solar power companies. The green agenda, which has become a climate change industry, is very lucrative for wealthy climate alarmists and for the United Nations. Dick Morris said, “The oil price drop is really gutting Obama’s green agenda.”...

As reported recently by the Harvard Crimson (Harvard’s daily student-run newspaper), since April 2014, Harvard University Dining Services (HUDS) stopped purchasing SodaStream machines (do-it-yourself soda and water machines which are owned and manufactured by an Israeli-based company). Since that time HUDS also agreed to remove SodaStream labels from existing water-filtering machines currently installed in the dining halls of many Harvard-Radcliffe residences, or Houses.

    Of course SNL had to get a few digs in at the Sony hacks this week, and Mike Myers returned as Dr. Evil himself to do the digging. During the show's cold open, the old Austin Powers villain said that Sony, North Korea, and the GOP were all giving evil organizations a bad name. And over The Interview, of all things. "Look, I saw The Interview," he said, addressing Sony (which apparently hasn't had a hit since the Walkman). "It was charming. But if you really want to put a bomb in a theater, do what I did: put in...

    And I’m not so sure about the other 3 percent, either. It is amazing to behold how liberals will grab hold of the flimsiest statistic so long as it bolsters The Narrative, no matter how easily and convincingly the figure is debunked. These days, the favorite liberal numbers are 1 in 5, 97 percent, and 77 percent. If you keep up, you’ll recognize them immediately, of course: 1 in 5 women are raped in college; 97 percent of all scientists agree about human-caused climate doom, and women only earn 77 cents on the dollar compared to men’s earnings.

    Of course Barack Obama’s latest treachery – normalizing relations with the Castro Brothers prison state – is a terrible thing. It is as fraudulent as Obama is and it will further crush any hopes the average Cuban might have of ever being free. By infusing cash to prop up a torture regime Obama has all but guaranteed the Cuban people’s nightmare will continue after the Castros have died. They need only look to Venezuela to see their own desolate future. Yet, as sad as this is for the Cuban people, it is fraught with dangers for us as well. The...

    Two-thirds of the George Washington University students who were asked to sign a petition calling for Americans to be deported in order to make room for illegal immigrants to reside in the country did so. “The ones we’ve labeled as ‘illegal immigrants’ have just as much right to be here as anyone,” said political science major Adelle Pated. “I mean, as a nation of immigrants, the recent arrivals are probably more representative of what this country is all about than the people born here.” “Deporting anti-social segments of the citizenry to balance out the population flow makes ecological sense,” contended...
  • Muslim virus sneaks into Common Core open wound to infect N.C. high school students

    The students at North Carolina’s Farmville Central High School have been infected with a dangerous virus deliberately administered to them by their state’s school board. While the town’s parents were busy raising and caring for their families they made the mistake of trusting “professional” educators who have been caught injecting Islam into the school’s Common Core curriculum. The shocked townsfolk now see their children’s English class lessons being taught with references to Muhammad and other elements of Islam. Surprised students are asking how references to religion can be openly made in a public school and offered the following instructions they...

    Over the weekend two New York City police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, were executed by Ismaaiyl Brinsley in apparent retribution for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously encouraged leftists to protest the city’s police department. Before a press conference on the death of these two officers, police turned their back on the Mayor. They Mayor in turn attacked the actions of the police. It is obvious there is no love lost between the Mayor and the police department. The police union has so much as declared that blood is on...

    Two NYPD cops were executed yesterday by a black Muslim who declared it an act of revenge for the death of Eric Garner. Today a third cop was shot to death in Florida. Yesterday another cop was shot in St. Louis. #Coplivesdontmatter.These deaths are blood on the hands of Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and Bill DeBlasio who have been stoking the fires of police hate continuously. Eric Holder claimed that all cops are racist via "unconscious bias": In the past five years, Holder has more than doubled the number of police department probes compared with the previous five...

    Ten percent of the population, have fled Cuba, many of whom found a new home in America. When that many people wanted to leave, it tells you something is terribly wrong with life in Cuba When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 the Cold War that had existed between it and the U.S. since the end of World War Two came to an end, but there was ditritus, loose ends like Cuba and it has taken until now for an end to the diplomatic obstacles whose roots reach back to the Eisenhower administration. In 1960 it had approved a CIA...

    Unbridled racial discord fueled by bogus civil rights leaders and politicians in office is putting the lives of those whose job it is to protect the public at risk. There’s, at least metaphorically speaking, a black ribbon on millions of front door Christmas wreaths today. Related: Officers Down in Brooklyn And there could, God forbid, be more coming from St. Louis, Mo tomorrow. “ST. LOUIS — An off-duty police officer remained in critical condition Saturday after he was shot several times while driving his car in the Hyde Park neighborhood. “Police said they have not been able to get information...
  • Why is Israel blamed for evil while Islamic nations are not?

    Blaming Israel for evil, rather than her many Islamic neighbors and enemies, is -- despite the views of Obama and His colleagues -- contrary to American values. Doing so is based on Jew hatred, envy of success, and the multicultural absurdity that no culture or religion is better or worse than any other. As I argued most recently here and here, Israel is fighting for her survival against regimes that want her to cease to exist because she is Jewish, not Islamic, and her government is free and democratic, not dictatorial. She is, therefore, an outsider in the Middle East. This video identifies many of the reasons why Israel is viewed harshly by other Western civilizations while Islamic nations, which...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Media Buzz,” investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson said the CDC is not putting out the current information on how many potential cases of Ebola they are currently tracking in the Untied States. Attkisson said, “I called CDC not long ago and I said how many cases are being monitored in the United States and they said 1,400. I said, ‘Where are these updates on your website? ‘ They said they’re not putting it on the web.
