    It's all about wedge-issues and fundraising. Before we start talking about the left-wing hissy fit unfolding in the House of Representatives, you need to keep something in mind. This is an election year. Democrats need four things: 1. They need to further their 100 year old agenda of banning guns. 2. They need to blame guns for their failure to deal with radical Islam. 3. They need a 2016 wedge issue. 4. They need - desperately - a massive pile of the political cash they claim to hate.

    Pope Francis is very popular around the world, but there are growing signs that his popularity is dwindling in his own country, Argentina. And there are good reasons for it. When former archbishop of the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires Jorge Bergoglio was chosen pope of the Roman Catholic Church in 2013, there were massive celebrations in Argentina. He was the first Latin American pope, and a respected priest in Argentina, where he was known to be at odds with the corrupt populist government of former President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. Once in the Vatican, Francisí frequent calls to Argentine...

    While verbal and physical attacks against churches and religious leaders accumulate in the heated election climate in Spain, Pope Francis will meet Pablo Iglesias, the current irrepressible leader of the radical left Spain in September. With this meeting Pope Francis continues his unilateral contacts with representatives of the radical left. Acts of vandalism against churches and religious institutions, but also verbal attacks against high church officials, have characterized the time before the early Spanish general elections which are to take place on 26 June. One of the most prominent victims of the attacks is Antonio Cardinal Ca√Īizares, Archbishop of Valencia...

    The report blames a host of factors for this year's lackluster economic prospects including persistent weak demand in the major economies which remains a drag on global growth, the low price of oil and other commodities which are hurting exporting countries, severe weather-related shocks especially severe drought related to El Nino, political challenges, and large capital outflows in many developing regions. Dawn Holland, a senior economist in the U.N.

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) ó Oil drilling companies and royalty owners from the Texas Panhandle to New Mexico's stretch of the Permian Basin are embarking on a grass-roots campaign to limit foreign oil imports, salvaging what they say is a major sector of the U.S. economy. "American oil is competing against a cartel of government operators which has a stated initiative of driving an American industry out of business," said Tom Cambridge, one of the Panhandle producers leading the campaign. The grass-roots movement is pushing for the next president of the United States to issue a proclamation setting quotas for imports...

    A group of undergraduate professors at George Mason University are leading the charge to oppose renaming the law school after late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. A public Virginia university, GMU received a $30,000,000 pledge to rename the law school. However, the George Mason faculty senate -- which is not a law school body -- passed a resolution opposing the name change. The reasons the GMU faculty senate opposed the well-funded name change included the following: The memorializing of a Supreme Court Justice who was a significant contributor to the polarized climate in this country that runs counter to...

    Superdelegates supporting Hilary Clinton are getting angry, abusive phone calls and emails from Bernie Sanders' backers demanding they switch sides. The pressure is intense, say Clinton superdelgates from states won by Sanders. Superdelegates are not "pledged" to the state victor and can vote whichever way they want. That's leading to a torrent of unpleasantness. . . .

    The Inquisitr News ^ | March 20, 2016 | Reno Berkeley
    On September 17, 2011, the Occupy Wall Street movement exploded onto the scene. Peaceful protestors set up tents and sleeping bags in New York City's Zuccotti Park. The movement's slogan was "We are the 99 percent." Protestors railed against big banks, the growing foreclosure scandal, and political corruption. Five years later, the Occupy movement finally has the leader it never really had: Bernie Sanders. In the years since the movement was squelched by a chillingly multi-pronged alliance between various U.S. government agencies and private enterprise, resentment toward those who retain a chokehold on power and money has simmered just below...

    There is certainly rampant poverty among Democrats today, a poverty of fresh thinking. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is quite comfortable pandering for votes, regardless of the facts. At a recent Democrat presidential debate, Sanders made the outlandish claim that ďwhen youíre white, you donít know what itís like to be living in a ghetto; you donít know what itís like to be poor.Ē This is incredibly ironic because Sanders, a committed socialist, was relatively poor until the age of 40. He was never able to earn an adequate living until he started in politics. Before he entered elective office, Sanders...

The split, largely generational given the youthful tilt of the Vermont senator's supporters, underscored a hard truth for California Democrats that was barely discussed during the celebratory convention: Numbers-wise, the party's heading for trouble.

    If misery loves company, then at least Venezuela is located in the right corner of the globe. A recent study projects that the South American nation has far and away the world's most miserable economy in 2016, nearly four times worse off than second-place Argentina. A survey conducted by Bloomberg Business using the "misery index" projects that Venezuela in 2016 will continue to worsen. Bloomberg estimates that Venezuela's inflation rate will rise from 98.3 percent last year to 152 percent in 2016. Argentina, another South American nation that has flirted with socialist economic policies, is facing many similar problems. With...

But the late Mrs. Thatcher - heroic conservative prime minister of Great Britain - was too well-mannered to tell people what actually comes next. So I'll have to do it. After socialists run out of other people's money, the people eventually run out of something almost as precious as money: Toilet paper. It's happening right now in Venezuela, once a socialist, oil-rich paradise and land of great shortstops. But Venezuela is fast becoming a thoroughly failed state. Let's just hope...

    One of the curious aspects of the intensity of the primary season is that most forget that there is another side to contest. After all, the ultimate goal of the primaries is to have a party standard bearer that has chance against the Leftist tyrannical side of the aisle.

    The leader of Spain's anti-austerity party Podemos, Pablo Iglesias, on Friday proposed forming a government with the Socialists, making a left-wing governing alliance more likely after last month's inconclusive election. Iglesias told a news conference he had informed King Felipe VI of "our desire to form a government of change with the Socialists and the United Left" and that he would seek the post of deputy prime minister. [...] Last month's general election produced a hung parliament in which a ruling majority cannot easily be formed. Acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's conservative Popular Party won the most seats, 119, but...

    ~~~~This is how they'll gut American democracy: Scott Walker and the Kochs want to [expletive] America as bad as they did Wisconsin~~~ The third week in December brought two startling stories highlighting the ongoing Dixiefication of the Midwest, a key ingredient in how the GOP, with its aging white male demographic base, is nonetheless strategically outmaneuvering the Democratic Party on multiple fronts. They are sharp reminders of how our politics are being reshaped in state legislatures and on the ground-and how inattentive to basics the Democrats have become since the demise of the 50-state strategy.The story from Wisconsin concerns the...

    Washington (CNN)--A sense of anxiety is cascading through Hillary Clinton's campaign, with an increasing sense of urgency the primary fight with Bernie Sanders is far more of a threat than once imagined, unlikely to be extinguished after the first contests in Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton has gone from all but ignoring Sanders to fiercely engaging him in recent days, a reflection of public and private polling that points to a race that is uncomfortably competitive for the Democratic front-runner. She openly questions his electability and argues that he is out of step with the party on guns and other...

He rejected ďso-called Western cultureĒ whose bible ďexpressly established that everything sacred came from the Jews.Ē Instead he looked to the ďlarge circle of friends, many millions of peopleĒ whose good opinion of his crimes he wanted. These millions of people were not in Germany. They werenít even in Argentina. His fellow Nazis had abandoned him after deciding that the murder of millions of Jews was...

    NEW YORK ó Before the United Nations can save the planet, it needs to clean up its own house. And as scandal after scandal has unfolded over the past decade, from Oil for Food to procurement fraud to peacekeeper rape, the size of that job has become stunningly clear. But any understanding of the real efforts that job entails should begin with a look at the long and murky career of Maurice Strong, the man who may have had the most to do with what the U.N. has become today, and still sparks controversy even after he claims to have...

    We will soon know around 2pm Eastern (8pm in France) who the winners and losers were in the regional government elections. The National Front is hoping for a breakthrough in northern France led by Marine Le Pen and in the southeast of France led by Marion Marechal Le Pen. The media and political elites in France have pulled out the stops to attack the FN and put it in a negative light. Marine Le Pen has been subjected to hostile coverage as part of the media backlash against Donald Trump with attempts to trash Trump's immigration proposals and accuse Le...

    Leaders of Venezuela's opposition are claiming victory ahead of official results in Sunday's crucial legislative elections that could alter the country's balance of power after 17 years of socialist rule.

But with no official results released and the ruling socialist party not commenting, their claims could not be confirmed. "The results are as we expected. Venezuela won," former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles said on Twitter. "With great humility, serenity...
