    Fr. Mario Guevara was Hearing ConfessionsFr. Mario Guevara, aged 59, vicar of Managua Cathedral, suffered a sulfuric acid attack on December 5, 2018, when a 24-year-old woman threw the acid on the priest’s face and body while he was in the cathedral hearing confessions.

Despite serious burns, the priest’s condition appears stable. The woman, detained by people in the cathedral as she tried to escape, was arrested by...
  • Dissident intellectual Noam Chomsky at 90

    Born on December 7, 1928, Noam Chomsky was raised by Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants in Philadelphia. Though his father was a Hebrew scholar who studied medieval grammar, Chomsky lacked direction through school and university and only committed to the study of linguistics when he took up a post at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1955. It wasn't long, however, before the young unknown scholar single-handedly revolutionized the field of linguists, his book Syntactic Structures (1957) kickstarting his concept of "transformational grammar" that argued — contrary to the behaviourist fad of the time — that our linguistic capacity is genetic...

    Under Chinese Communist Party (CCP) control, China has shown itself to be an extraordinarily dictatorial and authoritarian nation. Freedoms taken for granted in the West are not only denied under CCP rule but violently repressed. Human rights activists and lawyers disappear and are tortured; alternative political parties are crushed. Calls for justice are met with the iron hand of the state. Muslims have been rounded up in the hundreds of thousands and forced into re-education camps in Xinjiang ... It is also a regime that knows how to present itself to the West, saying the right things to draw support...

    Special counsel and former FBI director Robert Mueller is accused of framing a man on gun charges — a case that is officially under investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI). Writer Jerome Corsi, who rejected Mueller’s plea deal in the Russia collusion case but is still under Mueller’s microscope, actually knew about the case in question years ago, before the criminal investigation opened in Tennessee. Mueller as FBI director was accused of working with a blogger who wears a hammer and sickle Communist hat to build the law enforcement presence that led to the man’s arrest on gun...

    Last week, we told you that the Philadelphia Police Department was asking for the public’s help to identify a group of people who allegedly attacked United States Marine Corps reservists in Old City, and now police say they have one suspect in custody: Tom Keenan, who has been associated with Philadelphia’s antifa movement. Investigators say that a group of men and women maced, punched, kicked, and robbed the reservists near Front and Chestnut streets on Saturday, November 17th, around 3:20 p.m., just down the street from the controversial “We the People” rally. The group allegedly called the reservists “Nazis” and “white supremacists.” -snip According to...
  • Anybody hearing about just how far left the caravan organizers are?

    American Thinker ^ | November. 25,2018 | Monica Showalter
    Meanwhile, pictures from Univision (Spanish only) do expose who the caravan organizers are. The camera shots show that the organizers themselves are far-left activists, quite possibly what remain of the gang-like Chavista shock troops of Latin America who destroyed Venezuela. Smug, smarmy and robotic, they speak a disciplined Marxist party line devoid of individualism. They're obviously experienced community organizers, which gives you an approximate look at how Chavez destroyed Venezuela. It was guys like these who produced that. And given the caravan thugcraft already seen, look at them how at odds it all is with their peaceable and humanitarian claims....

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of fomenting hate and division, citing an increase in hate crimes through the state of New York. “I think we are in a moment in time where our country and our morality as a country is literally on knife’s edge. We have a president who has blurred, even destroyed the lines between right vs. wrong. He has demonized immigrants. He has created division and hate throughout society,” she said during a speech at the National Action Network Conference. “In New York State, we have more hate crimes than we have...

    One wonders what Arizona Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and candidate for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Jeff Flake thinks of the news that the five members of the Taliban, dubbed their “Dream Team”, that President Barack Hussein Obama traded for the traitor and deserter Bowe Bergdahl, have officially returned to the Taliban, their mission once again to kill Americans and, presumably, Arizonans. Let me take a wild guess and suggest that it is doubtful Sinema will express condemnation of and regret for Obama’s move to honor to excuse a traitor and reward an enemy of the United States, an...

    Andrew Gillum may retract his concession in the Florida governor’s race. Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, conceded the race in a speech on Tuesday, after polls showed him down one percentage point to Republican Ron DeSantis, a former congressman who is close to President Donald Trump. But DeSantis’s vote margin dwindled on Wednesday as absentee and provisional ballots continued to be counted.

    Moscow, October 29, Interfax - Pope Francis has a balanced position on the events involving the Orthodox Church in Ukraine, Metropolitan Hilarion, the head of the Synodal Department for External Church Relations, said. "We have never heard any support for Constantinople's rapacious actions from the pope or his representatives. We have never heard any support for the Ukrainian authorities, which intend to discriminate against the Russian-speaking population. And we generally see a very balanced position from Pope Francis personally, the Vatican as a state, and the Roman Catholic Church on different levels," the metropolitan said on the program Church and...

    A top Russian official has declared that the country is preparing for war, following President Donald Trump’s announcement that the U.S. would be withdrawing from a Cold War-era disarmament treaty. According to the U.K.’s Sunday Express, the First Committee of the U.N. General Assembly voted Friday against Russia’s proposal to save the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces treaty (INF) between its country and the U.S., following President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. would be unilaterally withdrawing from the 1987 agreement. In response, Deputy head of the Department of Nonproliferation and Arms Control at the Russian Foreign Minister, Andrei Belousov, told the U.N.,...

    Barely two days after Democrat Andrew Gillum was leading in most polls for governor of Florida, a Strategic Research Associates poll conducted for Gray Television and released Wednesday showed Republican and former Rep. Ron DeSantis pulling into the lead, 48 to 45 percent. The margin of error was +/-3.46 percent. The poll is the first since the primaries last month to put the conservative DeSantis ahead of Bernie Sanders supporter Gillum. Virtually every expert who spoke to Newsmax agreed that Gillun was damaged by recent revelations Gillun had misstated that he reimbursed a lobbyist for a ticket to the Broadway...
