    Al Franken didn’t resign, he announced he “intends” to resign in a few weeks (after the Judge Roy Moore election). If Judge Roy Moore gets elected in Alabama expect Franken to have a change of heart. He'll use Moore's victory as a reason to NOT resign.

I think many of us agree the liberal hit squad is what is coming after Moore, not true "victims". Their timing, the amount of time it took for them to come forward,...

    The Political Pope: How Pope Francis is Delighting the Liberal Left and Abandoning Conservatives With all the controversy that surrounded the election of Pope Francis upon the resignation of Pope Benedict in 2013, it seems that Catholics may have lost sight of a very key element of this episode, namely, that Benedict XVI never resigned his papal office, but only the active exercise thereof. On the eve of his resignation, he said: “Anyone who accepts the Petrine ministry no longer has any privacy. He belongs always and completely to everyone, to the whole Church… “The ‘always’ is also a “forever”—there...
