    Pollster Frank Luntz conducted a focus group of Democratic voters and asked them what they thought of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton running again. They unanimously agreed Clinton should not run again, citing her time has passed, she’s not well liked, and she’s “old news.”

    The Florida Democratic Party allegedly violated election laws by asking voters to fix their vote-by-mail ballots after voting already concluded. The state’s party instructed workers and volunteers to reach out to the voters who submitted mail ballots with signature issues and requested that they resolve the discrepancies, reported The Naples Daily News. The instructions came after Election Day already passed, making the effort a violation of Florida’s election rules. The Democratic Party sent modified “cure affidavit” forms showing a deadline of Nov. 8, three days beyond the state’s actual deadline. The altered forms were distributed in multiple Florida counties including...

    Abortion activists are criticizing Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant for being white and caring about unborn black babies who are aborted. On Monday, Bryant held a press conference with National Right to Life President Carol Tobias and U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith where he mourned the loss of so many unborn babies to abortion in the black community. The pro-life governor asked why there is no outrage in the media about “the genocide of 20 million African American children” by the abortion industry, the Jackson Free Press reported earlier this week. “See, in my heart, I am confused about where the outrage...

Albert’s attempt to understand Aristotle’s writings established the climate in which Thomas Aquinas developed his synthesis of Greek wisdom and Christian theology. But Albert deserves recognition on his own...

    1 Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. 2 For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary. 3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; 4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; 5 And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing...

    The papally appointed prelates' fate was not included in the recent deal with Beijing and remains under discussionOn the face of it, one of the more curious issues about the recent "temporary" deal between the Vatican and Beijing on the appointment of bishops, as described in the official state-run Chinese media, was the lack of any resolution of the status of bishops appointed by the Vatican but not recognized by Communist Party-run Catholic groups. It would seem to have been a logical quid pro quo — something granted or expected in return for something given — for the Vatican's forgiveness...

"GROH-WARGO: And that is a very clear effort really exposing these issues. Because here’s the deal, whatever happens with our campaign, we’ve got to fix the system here in Georgia."

    After traveling nearly 3,000 miles, enduring sweltering heat, tropical downpours, chilly evenings and endless stretches of mountains and desert during more than a month on the road, Ana Lidia Cruz acknowledged being somewhat deflated upon her arrival to this sprawling border city. “Everywhere in Mexico, people treated us so nicely — they gave us food, water, places to stay,” said Vargas, 38, who was seated beneath a metal sculpture of dolphins in the seaside Playas de Tijuana district. “But here, they don’t seem to want us. We’re all tired, and a bit disillusioned.” [cut] Late Wednesday, residents of the upscale...

    Hundreds of people who arrived in Tijuana with the first wave of the migrant caravan planned to spend Wednesday night in a makeshift camp by the Pacific Ocean, steps from the tall border fence that separates Mexico and the United States. But those plans shifted in the evening, after local and state officials opened a temporary shelter – and about 300 local residents gathered by the encampment to demand the migrants leave the upscale Playas de Tijuana neighborhood and go to the facility. During a confrontation that lasted more than three hours, area residents sang the Mexican national anthem and...

    Baltimore, Md., Nov 14, 2018 / 03:16 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- On the last day of their fall meeting, the U.S. bishops' conference voted down a resolution that would have “encouraged” the Holy See to release all documents on the allegations of sexual misconduct against Archbishop Theodore McCarrick. After about a half hour of debate, objections that the resolution was redundant and ambiguous won out, and it was voted down by a clicker vote of 83-137, with three abstaining. The original text of the resolution, proposed by Bishop Earl Boyea of Lansing, read: "Be it resolved that the bishops of the...

    A federal judge has allowed some Floridians who had their mail-in votes rejected to attest to their votes’ validity by 5 p.m. on Nov. 17 and have the votes counted. U.S. District Judge Mark Walker ruled on Nov. 15 that some voters were denied the opportunity to validate, or cure, their rejected votes by the lawful deadline and thus deserve an exception. These votes were rejected because the signatures on the ballots were determined by election officials to not match the voters’ signatures on record with the elections’ authorities. Walker’s ruling came amid a machine recount of more than 8...

    The U.S. Department of Justice is planning to prosecute controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, according to a report Thursday. The department is confident they will be able to get him into a U.S. courtroom, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources familiar with the plan. Mr. Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy in London since 2012. Justice Department officials believe a public indictment may be a means to remove him from the embassy, the report said.
  • Will a Republican candidate stand up against Trump in 2020?

    The Washington Post ^ | November 15, 2018 | Michael Gerson
    Republicans thinking about opposing President Trump in the 2020 primaries are facing the hardest of political choices. Toppling a sitting president of your own party is a maneuver with the highest degree of difficulty. The most relevant historical model is probably Eugene McCarthy’s race against President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968, which helped persuade the politically wounded Johnson to withdraw. But McCarthy had a clear policy handhold — opposition to an increasingly unpopular war — and appealed to a discontented element within his party. What are the handholds for a challenger to Trump? Economic conservatives are generally happy with the...

    US bishops vote down resolution urging Holy See to release McCarrick documents The bishops of the United States resumed their open-floor discussion on the recent sexual abuse scandals facing the Church in America Wednesday morning. In addition to debating the best means of institutionally responding to the crisis, the specific case of Archbishop Theodore McCarrick was raised by several speakers. Bishop Richard Stika of Knoxville told the conference Nov. 14 that the allegations against McCarrick, and the scandal of his rise and fall, were not just affecting long-time Catholics. Many people in the process of entering the Church found themselves...

    A disruption at a Baltimore performance of "Fiddler on the Roof" made national news today. A man stood up before the act break of the seminal Jewish musical and shouted, "Heil Hitler, Heil Trump," holding his arm out in a Nazi salute. The story ran like wildfire, with national outlets and reporters picking up the Baltimore Sun's story of the "pro-Nazi and pro-Trump" salute. There's just one problem: The police report investigating the incident clearly states that the man loathes President Trump. In the police report obtained by the Washington Examiner, the reporting officer, Jake Aumack, says: "During my interview...

    The historic Agreed Statement between Anglican and Oriental Orthodox theologians on the Procession and Work of the Holy Spirit has been published. The statement was signed last October after lengthy discussions by members of the Anglican Oriental-Orthodox International Commission (AOOIC). It was published at this year’s meeting of AOOIC, which took place last week in Lebanon. The agreed statement is part of a series of work which has helped to heal the oldest continuing division within Christianity, a schism that goes back centuries. At the core of Agreed Statement is the controversial Filioque clause – appended to the Nicene Creed...

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham says acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker told him he is going to "honor regular order" when it comes to special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russia investigation. The two met for a private meeting in his office Thursday afternoon. Whitaker replaces Jeff Sessions, who was ousted last week. Following the private meeting, Graham told reporters that he doesn't believe Whitaker will do "anything unsavory" when it comes to interfering with the Russia probe. "I've a lot of confidence that Mr. Mueller will be allowed to do his job and that the legal process that was in place...
