  • Obama touts Oscar Romero sainthood

    The Washington Examiner ^ | May 23, 2015 | Sarah Westwood
    President Obama embraced the beatification of Archbishop Oscar Romero of San Salvador Saturday ahead of celebrations in El Salvador over the controversial religious figure's progression toward sainthood. "I join people in El Salvador and around the world today in welcoming the beatification of Archbishop Oscar Romero," Obama said. "He fearlessly confronted the evils he saw, guided by the needs of his beloved pueblo, the poor and oppressed people of El Salvador." Romero was shot while performing Mass in 1980 just one day after imploring the country's military to abandon their orders to violently repress a leftist uprising. Pope Francis called...

    Today a broad coalition of leading organizations, cultural influencers, community members and activists unveiled “Wear Orange” (www.wearorange.org), a new campaign that will amplify existing efforts to reduce gun violence in America. To help honor the 88 Americans whose lives are cut short by gun violence every day — and the countless survivors whose lives are forever altered by shootings each year — the coalition has designated June 2, 2015 as the first annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day. On this day, campaign partners invite everyone who agrees we can do more to save American lives from gun violence to do...

    Hard-core Communists in Hollywood, and by that I mean those with party cards and whose allegiance was to Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union, not the United States, made a major effort to take over the movie industry and nearly succeeded. The much-maligned House Un-American Activities Committee, as even liberal Hollywood historians Larry Ceplair and Steven Englund acknowledge, uncovered over 200 party members in Hollywood. My dad, Morrie Ryskind, one of the few outspoken anti-Communist screenwriters in Hollywood, said the number was closer to 300. They were part of a broad conspiracy of subversives who had penetrated America’s most critical...

    This year marks two decades since two important events in the efforts to get Baltimoreans to face hard truths about Baltimore — David Rusk's warning that a city in decline could pull the whole metropolitan region down and the filing of a major class-action lawsuit to end decades of segregative housing policy that left the city with a disproportionate share of the region's poor. Rusk's book, "Baltimore Unbound,' declared that the city had reached a point of no return in social and economic decline, and that without a new metropolitan approach to governance, the suburban counties would next feel the...

    Noting that he’s “perhaps the most progressive member of the United States Senate,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) described today how, as president, he would do socialism in America. “When we talk about Democratic socialism, I think it is important to realize that there are countries around the world, like Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, who have had social democratic governments on and off for many, many years. And we can learn a whole lot from some of those countries,” the 2016 Democratic presidential contender said on CBS this morning. “For example, the United States is the only major country on earth...

His wife's company used the money to buy plots of land in central Chile which her company then resold for profit. Although Chile's national bank regulator cleared him of any wrongdoing, the issue has become a scandal. Ms Bachelet always maintained she had not been aware of the deal but in a TV interview on Wednesday night she acknowledged she had made "important mistakes" in not returning from holiday or commenting on the case sooner.

    Reports claimed the government was prepared to reduce at least three different VAT rates to one, and limit exemptions. Prime minister Alexis Tsipras had opposed the move, claiming that the change would hit poorer people. The country will also press-on with privatisations it had also previously vowed to block, according to reports. However, Syriza has said that demands by creditors to reverse an increase in the minimum wage and cut pensions remain "red lines" that the leftist leadership is unwilling to cross...

Those charged with Kadir are former JFK worker Russell Defreitas, a Guyanese-born US citizen; Kareem Ibrahim, an imam from Trinidad; and Guyanese Abdel Nur. Kadir and Ibrahim were arrested in Trinidad, while Defreitas was held in New York. Up to press time, however, Nur had not been apprehended and was thought to be still at large in Trinidad....

Befitting her status as a behind-the-scenes puppeteer, Jarrett alleged used cut-outs to feed the information to the media, keeping her fingerprints off the dirty Dem-on-Dem deed. Echoing a joke I made five days ago, Klein calls it a “vast left wing conspiracy.”

But in the meantime, another politician has come from nowhere to dethrone Jeb Bush as the frontrunner for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.

It has been his hope that Cuba would one day be free of communism. But he is far less hopeful now that Pope Francis has taken measures that he says “objectively favor the political and ecclesiastical left in Latin America” and could undermine the “Christian future of the Americas.” Meanwhile, Marxist writer Richard Greeman has written an extraordinary article, “Catholicism:...

    The act of waving lists to decry an injustice is as old as the Republic. But when Senator Joseph McCarthy waved his list, almost exactly 65 years ago, it became much more than the usual political gesture. On February 9, 1950, during a speech he gave in West Virginia, McCarthy waved a list of 205 names of men he alleged were “known Communists” — known as such by Secretary of State Dean Acheson. With this gesture, he worsened an already panicky situation, gave the angry public a ready-made explanation for why the country was losing the Cold War, helped foster...

The ratio of jobseekers to openings fell from a peak of seven to one in 2009 to two to one in November 2014. What was behind this? The answer in a new study will not please Democrats. The job market is hot largely because of a cold-hearted Republican reform, it concludes. Before the financial crisis, jobless workers in most states qualified only for 26 weeks of unemployment benefits. In June 2008...

After noting evidence of anti-Christian hostility among cultural progressive activists, sociology professors David Williamson and George Yancey took a “systematic look” at the qualitative data from an extensive national survey, the American National Election Survey, and conducted interviews with members of liberal advocacy organizations. They published their findings in their recent book, So Many Christians, So Few Lions: Is there Christianophobia in...

Boehner’s Obamacare-related investments trace back to 2009, when the Obama administration was pushing the Affordable Health Care Act through Congress. Boehner has consistently maintained his investments are held in a blind trust and that he does not personally make investment decisions in his own investment portfolio. But few experienced congressional critics believe Boehner and other members of Congress are unaware of their investment holdings, because public disclosure requirements demand yearly...

    I went down to Al Sharpton March at Freedom Plaza today, which featured the Mothers of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner with a crowd of mostly out of towners that numbered between 8,000 to 10,000 at the height of it all. The march and rally pretty much ended with around 3pm with Sharpton making a very brief appearance and mostly White Leftwingers hijacking the march afterwards as the out of towners headed for their buses. The signage held up by these Leftists radical included environmental messages, the overthrow of the capitalist system. One sign proclaimed that, "Capitalism was the disease...

    December 7th is a day that most Americans take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform as they look back on the Japanese surprise attack on the naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on that date in 1941. Not the Boston Globe which published an anti-military screed by columnist Stephen Kinzer on the 73rd anniversary of the attack entitled, Joining the Military Doesn’t Make You a Hero Kinzer decries American society in 2014 treating troopers and veterans as heroes. While Kinzer gives a perfunctory nod to soldiers who perform above and beyond...

    The Baltic Sea is certainly not the only part of the world still suffering from when humanity didn't understand the consequences of its actions. However, compared to other parts of the world, it may be one of the most stark examples of how climate change can just perpetuate these problems. That's because the Baltic Sea is home to the Boknis Eck time series station. Based just off the coast of Schlong-Holstein at the exit of Peckernförde Bay, this station has been recording environmental parameters concerning the Baltic Sea since 1957, painting a particularly detailed picture of how human and natural...

    Climate change is real, predominantly man-made and more urgent a threat than ever before, claims the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. "Science has spoken. There is no ambiguity in their message. Leaders must act. Time is not on our side," said the UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon at the launch of the report yesterday in Copenhagen, Denmark. "Those who choose to ignore or dispute the science so clearly laid out in this report do so at great risk for all of us and for our kids and grandkids," said US Secretary of State, John Kerry. What...

    The hard-core socialists have a party. The soft-core socialists have a party. It is the voter who is traditionally conservative that has no home I’m afraid we have done it again. The Left has been allowed to define the “independent voter” group and the Republicans have bought it; hook, line and sinker. For some reason, it is commonly accepted that the “independent voter” is to be found somewhere between the Republican and Democrat platforms. Every two years, during the campaigns, we see Republicans running as conservatives during the primary elections and then moving to the left for the general election....

    Often it seems as though there is no end to the left’s hypocrisy. And, the farther the left, the more apparent the hypocrisy. Such is the case with the Freedom Socialist Party, a national party. The Freedom Socialist Party has strong ties to Seattle. According to the party’s website, it actively campaigned for Kshama Sawant in her race for Seattle City Council. It “helped secure union endorsements and donations, and near support from the King County Labor Council…” The Freedom Socialist Party does differ from Sawant in one respect. You see, for this particular socialist party, a $15 minimum wage...

    Hunter Walker October 28, 2014Mitt Romney, who lost the 2012 election to President Barack Obama, has been traveling the country making appearances on behalf of Republican candidates in this year's midterm election. At one of these events in Nebraska on Monday evening, Romney unleashed a scathing assault on the "terrible" Obama administration. It was like a Republican standup special with a constant stream of jokes and barbs about Obama's policies and leadership abilities. Romney began by declaring he didn't care about upsetting Obama. "If you're running for office they tell you it's not a good idea to tell jokes alright....

    In my opinion as a Christian, the Democrats' hate-whitey-get-out-the-black-vote scheme is a satanic plot conceived by deviant minds. Folks, words cannot express my visceral disdain for such shameful politicking. Any media personality or outlet that signs on to the Democrats' unconscionable plan should be shunned, unworthy of your respect or time.

    ANCHORAGE - The Pebble Partnership is suing the Environmental Protection Agency in federal court, seeking more details on what it calls “secretive meetings” by the agency with environmental groups and anti-Pebble activists. Pebble claims it filed a Jan. 22 Freedom of Information Act request with the EPA for any communications concerning the project between senior EPA officials, including Administrator Lisa Jackson, and a group of 16 people and organizations. The National Resources Defense Council, Trout Unlimited, the Bristol Bay Native Corp., and Sen. Mark Begich, as well as some of their employees, were listed specifically. So were anti-Pebble activists Alan...
