    "Rorate Editorial: The Pope in the United States - Ambiguous on what should be clear, clear only on his political priorities" Pope Francis' visit has shown us once more that he can be clear and unambiguous on his priorities, and vocal and forthright in saying what he wants to say. He did not hesitate to make direct statements on immigration, on the environment, on the abolition of the death penalty and in praise of religious liberty (that is, religious liberty as understood by the Western secular consensus rather than the defense of the Church's right to proclaim the truth in...

    The first two women to graduate from Ranger School have had their elite status questioned amid claims that Army officials vowed to pass at least one of them before the course even started. Back in January a general is claimed to have told his subordinates that 'a woman will graduate Ranger School' this year, as part of the first ever class to include serving female soldiers. The general, who has not been named, reportedly added: 'At least one will get through', according to People. In August, Capt Shaye Haver and First Lt Kristen Griest became the first two women to...
  • WHAT IF: A White Baptist Boy Brought A 'Clock' That Looked Like A Bomb To School?

    If a white Baptist kid named Wedge Figgus rocked up to his High School’s Show-N-Tell last week with a briefcase full of circuit boards, wires and timers that looked nada like a frickin' clock, the following chain-reaction, more than likely, would’ve been set into irrevocable motion: 1. Wedge would’ve been night-sticked into next week by the #BlackLivesMatter school cop at the behest of the lesbian/communist principal. If not that, Wedge definitely would’ve been bounced out of that school until the media had finished totally ruining his and his family’s life. Speaking of the media … 2. The presumption of Wedge’s...

    By Joel Leyden United States News AgencyNew York --- August 23, 2015 ... Social media is no longer the bastard son of the media. It is the media. There was a time when newspapers (print), billboards, lawn signs, buttons, radio and TV ruled in winning a political campaign. Those days are history. Classic media is still relevant, but no longer primary. It is no longer the question "should we add social media to our campaign budget?" But - "should we add newspaper, TV and radio to our campaign budget". The reason is called "instant", "feature" and "cost effective". One need...

    Politically incorrect? Tough. As youre no doubt aware, saying Donald Trump isnt interested in political correctness is a little bit of an understatement. The one constant in his campaign has been that he says what he wants, how he wants, and if youre going to try to challenge him on it, youre in for a struggle. The press cant stand this, because they know his attitude resonates with voters. So, when he outlined his plans to deal with illegal immigration, they were ready to pounce. HTML5 video is not supported! Trump gave them an opening by using the term anchor...

    It happened without a Summer of Love, without Timothy Leary, without a groovy anthem or a shaggy new national look. In the past decade or so, theres been a silent revolution in American culture, one at least as profound as the 60s upheavals. Weve hardly taken notice of it, because it happened in peoples minds instead of in the streets, happened in ordinary people instead of in the elites and the punditocracy. Compared to just a few years ago, we have a completely different set of ideas about what constitutes acceptable behavior. As Caitlyn Jenner puts it in her new...

But he was also an unabashed liberal who often ferociously attacked his conservative guests while gushing over prominent liberal politicians and media figures.

But, conservative comedian Evan Sayet is about to change that.

She hoped the groups nearly $10,000 payment would secure 32 ad spaces along the sides of buses for an entire month, starting Wednesday when the law went into effect. But Metro rejected the design, which included Sawants name and title, citing a ban on bus ads with political content. Sawant is currently running for re-election, and the transit agencys ad policy prohibits advertising that promotes or opposes a political...

As long as we treat Islam as a religion, and only a religion, they have the advantage.

    A federal judge in Richmond on Tuesday will sentence Bob McDonnell on public corruption charges that could land the former Virginia governor in prison for more than a decade. Sentencing guidelines stipulate that McDonnell should receive around 10 years in prison after his September conviction on charges he accepted more than $150,000 in gifts from a wealthy businessman in exchange for preferential treatment. But the governors defense lawyers have argued that McDonnell should only serve 6,000 hours, or 250 days, of community service. Jeffrey Bellin, a law professor at The College of William and Mary, said judges have wide discretion...

    WASHINGTON (AP) The Obama administration Tuesday launched a bid to rein in the use of tax-exempt groups for political campaigning. The effort is an attempt to reduce the role of loosely regulated big-money political outfits like GOP political guru Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS and the pro-Obama Priorities USA. The Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department said they want to prohibit such groups from using "candidate-related political activity" like running ads, registering voters or distributing campaign literature as activities that qualify them to be tax-exempt "social welfare" organizations. The agencies say there will be a lengthy comment period before...
