    The last time Italian journalist Emiliano Fittipaldi wrote an exposé about corruption at the heart of the Roman Catholic Church, it landed him in a Vatican court facing a possible jail sentence on charges that he had illegally obtained confidential church papers in the course of his reporting.Now, six months after the 42-year-old reporter was cleared of all charges, Fittipaldi is taking on the church again. This time in a new book that accuses Pope Francis of doing “close to nothing” to stop clerical sexual abuse...around the world, despite the...pope’s frequent assertions that he has zero tolerance for...abuse...or those who...

    A Clinton campaign aide says that a typo in a March 19 email sent to John Podesta is to blame for opening the campaign chairman’s Gmail account up to Russian cyber hackers. The IT aide, Charles Delavan, tells The New York Times that his error — typing the word “legitimate” instead of “illegitimate” to describe a hacker’s email — continues to haunt him. “This is a legitimate email,” Delavan wrote to Clinton campaign aide Sara Latham after she forwarded him an spear phishing email designed to look like official correspondence from Google. “John needs to change his password immediately,” Delavan...

    $3 million wasted in the meantime I suppose this is what a Jill Stein presidency would have been like, except that it would have been hundreds of billions wasted on pointless exercises instead of a mere $3 million. We Michigan taxpayers should be grateful, I guess, that we only got a taste of such absurdity - however bitter the taste may have been. After several days in which state courts tussled with federal courts over whether the recount should go on, U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith finally came down on the side of the state and ruled that the recount...

    The White House said Thursday that protesters angered by the fatal police shooting of a black man in Charlotte, North Carolina, are raising “legitimate” concerns about racial disparities in the criminal-justice system. “Those are difficult questions that must be confronted,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “They cannot be ignored.” After a second night of rioting and confrontations with police in Charlotte, President Obama spoke by phone Thursday with North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory to receive an update on the situation. Mr. Earnest said the president wants authorities to ensure the safety of protesters.

    Moscow, June 13, Interfax - The Pan-Orthodox Council can only be legitimate if all local Churches without exceptions participate in it, the Moscow Patriarchate said. "Some people now say that it's their problem that they have refused, they don't have to participate, but we will go ahead anyway in the composition that will be there and will make decisions and they will become binding for everyone. It doesn't happen that way," Metropolitan Hilarion, the head of the Synodal Department for External Church Relations, told a briefing in Moscow on Monday. He said that all Churches have to participate in the...

    The Palestinian Authority (PA) is boasting over the “achievements” of the current terror wave, which Palestinian Arab terrorist groups have named the “Al-Quds Intifada”. The Gaza-based Al-Quds Center on Thursday published statistics regarding the wave of terrorism against Israel for the month of February 2016. According to the Arab organization, during the month of February there were 30 stabbing attacks (and attempted attacks), 13 shooting attacks, five car attacks (and attempted attacks), over 11 firebomb attacks and 10 attacks involving explosives. The Center further listed the following “achievements” of the “intifada”: The torching of a synagogue in Gush Etzion, the...

    Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday reiterated his opposition to recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, and also referred to the current terror wave as a “legitimate peaceful protest”. He made the comments at the start of a meeting of the Revolutionary Council of his Fatah organization, attended by members of the Fatah Central Committee. In his speech at the meeting, Abbas once again expressed his support for the French political initiative which seeks to convene an international peace conference. France, which announced the peace conference initiative in January, has threatened to unilaterally recognize the “State of Palestine”...

    ITHACA, N.Y. -- A Cornell student is suing New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman after claiming that the legal drinking age of 21 makes him feel "ostracized and excluded" from other graduate students. The action was filed by Matthew Uhalde Wednesday at the Tompkins County Court. According to the documents, Uhalde claims to have graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science degree and was admitted to a graduate program at Cornell University in fall 2015, at the age of 19. Uhalde says that because nearly all unofficial graduate school activities involve alcohol, he is not able to have a...

    A former U.S. attorney should be “celebrated, not sanctioned” the editorial board of The Arizona Republic recommended Saturday. “Exactly why the State Bar of Arizona pursued sanctions [a reprimand and a bill for nominal costs] against Dennis K. Burke for his involvement in the 'Fast and Furious' gun-running scandal is a mystery -- making it a perfectly appropriate conclusion to this enigmatic, murky federal mess." Except it’s not a conclusion, crocodile tear hand-wringing and excuse-making by columnist Ed Montini and editorial writer Doug MacEachern characterizing the criminal government "gunwalking" operation as a “slow, painful progression” notwithstanding. And the reason for...

    Think about the question in the title... Mohammed Morsi (of the Islamic Brotherhood) keeps using the word "legitimacy" when referring to his post as president. Morsi, according to the BBC, used the word 56 times in his most recent speech. It is true that he says he was Democratically elected, and it is also true that his opponents (who range from moderate Muslims, to Secularists, to Christian), have said that various freedoms (as in freedom of speech among others) have been drastically curtailed, and various news outlets have reported this along with the economy nosediving under his leadership -- with...

    A federal jury in Dallas on Monday dealt the Stealth Jihad initiative in the United States a crushing defeat: it found five former officials of an Islamic charity, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), guilty of funneling at least $12 million of the charity’s funds to the jihad terror group Hamas. The notorious “Muslim civil rights” group, the Council on American Islamic Relations, is involved as well, since Ghassan Elashi, a founding director of CAIR as well as founder of the group’s Texas chapter, was among those found guilty; Elashi and his co-defendants face prison sentences of up to twenty years...

    Defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel stated Iran has an “elected, legitimate government” and pointed out its membership in the United Nations, responding to a question Wednesday by Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R., Ga.) about why he would consider negotiations with Iran in light of its terrorist connections: HAGEL: Well, let’s start with a specific question on a vote, regarding designating the Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. You recall, because you were there, there were 22 senators who voted against that. The effort against it — the main point made on the floor of the Senate came from Senator Jim Webb....

    NEW YORK – Donald Trump’s has left his views behind to stir up conspiratorial craziness among Republican primary voters. John Avlon on why he should have run as a CEO instead of a tabloid joke. There is a place for a CEO presidential candidate in 2012. So far, Donald Trump isn’t filling it. Instead of focusing on his executive abilities and job-creating experience, The Donald has been busy going the full Birther. It’s hard to tell whether he’s free-lancing or just very badly advised, but one thing is clear—Donald Trump is trying to apply New York City tabloid rules to...

    The president's top counterterrorism adviser on Wednesday called jihad a "legitimate tenet of Islam," arguing that the term "jihadists" should not be used to describe America's enemies. During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of "political, economic and social forces," but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in "religious terms." He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not "terrorism," because terrorism is a "tactic," and not terror, because terror is a "state of mind" -- though Brennan's title, deputy national...
