    [Catholic Caucus] Polish Police Disrupt Mass, Kidnap Priest (Video) Polish police removed Salesian Father Michał Woźnicki, 54, from his room while he was celebrating an October 19 Traditional Latin Mass. Woźnicki was suspended for alleged “disobedience” in 2016, and expelled from his order in 2018. Nevertheless, he kept living in the Salesian house in Poznan where he built an altar in his room in order to say Mass for some faithful. The priest doesn't comply with coronavirus restrictions and doesn't use masks. Therefore, in a spirit of mercy, the Salesians called police. When the officers entered, Woźnicki told them to...

    A woman at a grade-school football game in Ohio on Wednesday was reportedly tased and arrested by a police officer for not wearing a face mask in the stands. The woman was sitting in the bleachers with her mother when she got into an altercation with the cop about mask-wearing at a middle school in the town of Logan, the Marietta Times reported. Video of the incident, which was posted to YouTube, shows the woman resisting as the officer struggles to handcuff her for nearly two minutes before he deploys his Taser.

    You Will Be Re-Educated Christine Rosen None On September 4, 2020, Russell Vought, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, sent a brief memo to the heads of the executive departments and agencies of the federal government. Its purpose was straightforward: to end the practice by any federal government agency of using training materials that promote critical race theory or white privilege or that teaches or suggests either (1) that the United States is either an inherently evil or racist country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil. The memo advised that further...
  • The Left Doesnt Really Want To Abolish The Police. They Want To Be The Police

    Restrictions on police power are, of course, imperfect, but they are much more developed and effective than those left-wing rioters and militants impose on themselves. The left doesn’t want to abolish the police; they want to be the police. At heart, the radicals rioting and fighting with the police are cops — every last man, woman, and alternatively gendered individual of them. The disorder they create is meant to clear the way to establish a new order, in which they will be the enforcers. They don’t want to be left alone to do their thing. They want to force the...

    Desperate to replace the tax revenues lost due to the Citys oppressive response to the COVID pandemic, Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady has authorized a widespread surveillance of social media posts. There are 22 states whose residents must report for a mandatory 14-day quarantine if they travel to Chicago, Arwady said. Very few are voluntarily submitting to this requirement. This forces us to monitor their social media activity. If we spot selfies or other posts sent from known tourist hot spots we check to see whether other posts from the same account were made from one...
  • Nanny State first. Police State next. A warning from Australia.

    America, if you want to know what a nanny state turning itself into a police state looks like, watch Victoria in Australia. On a day when 672 new Corona-virus cases and 7 deaths were reported in the state of Victoria, population 6.39 million, a state of disaster was declared. This suspends the known rules to enforce new restrictions like this: There is an 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew. Only one person per day can leave a household to buy food. All single parents must leave all their children unattended to buy food. One hour per day of exercise for...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that he would compel Americans to wear masks in public if elected president. In an interview with Pittsburgh CBS affiliate KDKA, Biden said that he would use federal power to mandate masks. Q: I know you have been critical of the presidents handling of the pandemic in the past. But lets look ahead. If you became president tomorrow, what would you do differently regarding the pandemic and getting these surging cases now under control? Biden: I would go back to making sure that everybody had masks, that you had PPE [personal protective equipment]...

    The NYPD will transition its anti-crime units into other assignments including detective work and neighborhood policing, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said Monday. The change will affect roughly 600 plainclothes officers, he said, with officers in every precinct being reassigned as the department switches focus to community-based efforts. Some officers could also be put into school detective roles or other positions. Thankfully, here in New York City, angry demonstrations have turned peaceful. Thoughtful discussions about reform have emerged, Shea said at a Monday afternoon news conference. We welcome reform, but we also believe that meaningful reform starts from within. The commissioner...

    Over the two last weeks, Mayor Bill de Blasio and others have voiced concerns that packed police brutality protests across the city could trigger a new wave of COVID-19 infections. Whether or not thats the case, however, remains unknown and de Blasios team wont be directly trying to find out. The hundreds of contact tracing workers hired by the city under de Blasios new test and trace campaign have been instructed not to ask anyone whos tested positive for COVID-19 whether they recently attended a demonstration, City Hall confirmed to THE CITY. No person will be asked proactively if...

    On May 1, 2020, Democratic congressman Bobby Rush introduced bill H.R. 6666, otherwise known as the Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone Act (TRACE Act). Ostensibly, the TRACE Act will limit the spread of COVID-19 by creating mobile health units that will conduct diagnostic testing trace and monitor the contacts of infected individuals and then support the quarantine of such contacts. The TRACE Act allocates $100 billion in federal funds to facilitate this project. Rush says "increased testing and contact tracing is the only way we will get back normal and safely reopen our economy." Basically, Rushs position is that America...

    If I am not mistaken, the two great Catholics in Australian history, in terms of seniority as Catholics, are Cardinal George Pell and St Mary of The Cross. I dont think what was done to Pell was as bad as what the English and their fellow travelling freedom haters did to Joan of Arc., but there are interesting parallels. If you know the story of Ned Kelly, you will know how Victoria Police have always had an English anti freedom streak deep within them. The police force of the Socialist Left Government of Premier Daniel Andrews elevated the corrupting PC...

    Mayor Eric Garcetti has asked Gov. Gavin Newsom to mobilize the National Guard to help Los Angeles deal with worsening looting, vandalism and violence on the streets. The move comes less than an hour after the mayor expanded expanded a curfew, first set for downtown, to the entire city from 8 p.m. Saturday to 5:30 a.m. Sunday. Sheriff Alex Villanueva said he is also seeking help from the National Guard. The decision came as the situation in the Fairfax District deteriorated, with shops, including Nordstrom and the Apple store, vandalized and looted. A small police kiosk in the mall was...

    The recent spate of protests against police brutality have changed the way the left thinks about rioting. The old liberal idea, which distinguished between peaceful protests (good) and rioting (bad), has given way to a more radical analysis. Riots work, insists George Ciccariello-Maher in Salon. But despite the obviousness of the point, an entire chorus of media, police, and self-appointed community leaders continue to try to convince us otherwise, hammering into our heads a narrative of a nonviolence that has never worked on its own, based on a mythical understanding of the Civil Rights Movement. Voxs German Lopez, while acknowledging...

    Catholic Bishops Pander To Washington State Politics Rather Than Defend Their Faith Washington state Catholic leaders would rather stick it to the president than let him defend their right to celebrate Mass. Following President Donald Trumps direction on Friday for states to allow houses of worship to reopened and to declare public worship as essential, Gov. Jay Inslee immediately thumbed his nose, and Washington bishops quickly follow suit.In a disappointing response, the bishops demonstrated that rather than stand up for their flock and acknowledge the presidents commitment to religious freedom, they prefer hand-wringing and waffling while they wait for the...
