    ne sunny day in October, at the Jefferson Parish correctional center just across the river from downtown New Orleans, Tiffany Burns, 34, was visiting her boyfriend. The pair had been dating for almost two years and were still giggly in love when a late July knock on the door sent him away. Scooped up by the police after being accused of robbing a suburban bank at gunpoint, Chrishon Brown, 37, was sent to the correctional center while his case worked its way through the court. A new, unwelcome chapter of their relationship began, with Brown using all his jail funds...

    US diplomats have dropped plans for Donald Trump to conduct a visit to Britain in January amid a war of words between the two countries’ leaders. Mr Trump, the US president, had been pencilled in for a ‘working visit’ in the first month of 2018 to formally open America’s new London embassy.

    President Donald Trump will next week make an official visit to Poland. Whilst many in the Polish government (and the citizens) welcome this visit, the leaders of the European Union are getting worried that it may cause or encourage defiance towards the Brussels Bureaucrats. One EU diplomat is quoted as saying: “One cannot but feel a bit suspicious if it isn’t an attempt to break up European unity,” and this diplomat may, in fact, be quite right. Poland (along with Hungary and the Czech Republic) has been under sustained economic attack over their refusal to fulfill EU migrant quotas. The...

    Donald Trump’s controversial state visit to Britain could move from London to the Midlands to allow the US President to address a mass rally and raise money for Armed Forces veterans. Ministers also say the trip could be delayed from June to July to coincide with Mr Trump’s visit to the G20 summit of developed nations in Hamburg. Trump advisers and senior Foreign Office figures have discussed how to save the controversial visit. One idea, which has been suggested to the White House, is for President Trump to address a rally in Birmingham where the audience would pay to enter,...

    The Queen of England is planning to invite the Trump Family to London for an official state visit. Via Conservative Treehouse: According to The Sunday Times Queen Elizabeth is planning to invite President Donald Trump for an official state visit during the summer of 2017. Great Britain has long been the strongest ally to the U.S. provoking causing consternation from the left-wing elements amid both nations. President Obama strained the relationship by criticizing the United Kingdom’s colonial heritage, removing a Winston Churchill bust from the oval office, and giving the Queen the gift of an iPod containing all of his own...

    President Obama and his family will arrive Sunday in Cuba for an historic three-day visit filled with symbolism, but with few expectations that the president’s legacy-building will improve human rights for Cubans under the repressive communist regime of the Castro brothers. Air Force One will land at Jose Marti International Airport near Havana late Sunday afternoon, making Mr. Obama the first sitting U.S. president to set foot on Cuban soil since Calvin Coolidge in 1928. After a stop at the U.S. Embassy, the Obamas are to visit the Cathedral in Old Havana to meet Cardinal Jaime Ortega, the archbishop who...

    Radical Arab MK Ahmed Tibi of the Joint List party on Wednesday asked Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud) to block Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's impending visit to Israel, in a call later echoed by Arab MK Issawi Frej (Meretz). Tibi termed Trump a "neo-Nazi" over his controversial plan to ban Muslim entry to the US, and went on to say that "what Trump said isn't foreign to several people in the Knesset." Trump has announced his plans to visit Israel sometime this month, while announcing his intentions to force Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) to hold more peace...

    Papal Visit - Ominous Harbinger Of Things To Come Several hours ago, the pope returned to the Vatican from the United States. We all got a glimpse into what we may expect from this pontificate - and it ain't pretty! We heard some snippets of exhortation to respect innocent life, but they were minuscule in comparison with the shillings for the allowance of illegal immigration, climate change, death penalty, arms trade, etc: all the talking points that had progressives (Obama included) waxing giddy with joy. Jim Sedlak of American Life League penned his opinion of some of the pope's addresses,...

Washington D.C., Sep 23, 2015 / 08:39 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis paid a short visit to the Little Sisters of the Poor community in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday to support them in their court case over the contraception mandate, the Vatican's spokesman revealed. It was a “short visit that was not in the program,” Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Holy See Press Office, said at an evening press conference...

    Fox News host Brian Kilmeade had pathetic and degrading words for Pope Francis while talking with Chris Wallace. Kilmeade said that he thinks the Pope should just stay out of America if he is going to criticize the GOP’s obsession with capitalism and climate change denial. Transcript: Kilmeade: Yeah, I’m Catholic and he could stay home. Some of his comments just have no place. He’s in the wrong country. But I tell you what — Wallace: What? He’s in the wrong country? What does that mean? Kilmeade: He doesn’t like capitalism. He blames us and money for what’s going on...

    The preparations for the pope's imminent visit are developing into quite a "dog-and-pony" show, with all the tee shirts, caps, cardboard cut-outs, etc. Lots of excitement is afoot - so much so that many are becoming oblivious to the storm that is about to erupt at the Ordinary Synod of the Family this coming October. Some of us are raising the alarm. Ladies and gentlemen, there is real possibility - if not probability - for schism to result from this synod. This tocsin is also being sounded by Cardinals. Cardinal Reinhard Marx is on record of favoring the distribution of...

    PHNOM PENH, Cambodia, March 26 (UPI) -- Michelle Obama's tour of Asia to promote girls' education was marked by blunt criticism from Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, who said the first lady was "playing around" and using hopeful rhetoric about making improvements but not guaranteeing aid. The Phnom Penh Post reported that Hun Sen told U.S. embassy personnel and USAID workers Wednesday that Obama's Saturday visit with 10 schoolgirls in the Cambodian city of Siem Reap, part of the White House's "Let Girls Learn" initiative, was good but not enough. He said the U.S. government should promise scholarships – if...

    I've been watching the news on Bibi Netanyahu's visit to Congress and have noticed an old demon raising it's ugly head again. If you are a Christian, you have but one response to all things Jewish. They are your family. If you are an atheist or some other pagan being, you can think what you want, but a Christian cannot be an anti-Semite. God's covenant was with Abraham and Moses, both Hebrew. The Jews were chosen to reveal Jesus to the world, even if they didn't believe. Jesus came as a Jew and taught the Torah in the Synagogue. We...

    On February 11, 2015, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop of Astana in Kazakhstan, met with Bishop Bernard Fellay, SSPX Superior General, and also with several priests of the Society, at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona (United States). This was the second visit by Bishop Schneider to one of our seminaries. On January 16, 2015, he had visited the St. Cure d’Ars Seminary in Flavigny (France). Both meetings pertained to the question of the liturgical reform of Paul VI and the doctrinal presuppositions of the Novus Ordo Missae. On December 5, 2014, Cardinal Walter Brandmuller, President Emeritus of the Pontifical...

[Snip] That luxury 747 alone costs $182,000 per hour to operate. It´s a nine-hour flight from Washington to one of the farthest reaches of the 50 states -- each way. How about Obama´s other discretionary trips? How much are taxpayers billed for those?

    After delivering a statement about his administration’s plans to deal with the current crisis at America’s border with Mexico Wednesday afternoon, President Barack Obama addressed for the first time the mounting criticism over his decision not to visit to border on his trip to Texas this week. In answering a reporter’s question on the controversy, Obama defended his decision by saying he was more interested in a substantive solution to the problem than a simple “photo-op.” The president explained that his Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson will be making his sixth trip to the border this week and briefs...
