  • ‘Kill The NRA’ Billboard on Interstate I-65

    02/20/2018 7:50:28 AM PST · by rktman · 52 replies ^ | 2/20/2018 | AWR Hawkins
    A “Kill the NRA” billboard was visible Monday on I-65 in Louisville, Kentucky. The message was spelled out in large, white spray-painted letters on a black billboard bearing the tag, “Resist 45.” The Courier Journal reports that photos come in the wake of the Florida school shooting that has given rise to intense criticism of the NRA. The NRA was made aware of the billboard and responded with a Facebook post: The Courier Journal reports that other billboards tagged “Resist 45” have popped around Louisville in recent months, leveling some degree of criticism toward President Trump. One billboard urged viewers...
  • Did Media Slobbering Over Communist Dictatorships Begin Last Week at the Korean Olympics?

    02/17/2018 7:21:19 AM PST · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | February 17, 2018 | Humberto Fontova
    Regarding the Mainstream Media’s gushing over Communist dictator Kim Jong Un’s sister at the Olympics last week please excuse Cuba-watchers while we roll our eyes completely into their sockets and chant The Talking Heads’ famous line: “Same as it Ever Was!” Actually, the term “same” doesn’t quite fit. Because if you actually read the New York Times, WaPo, CNN, etc. accounts of the Stalinist Kim Yo-jong at the Seoul Olympics they’re pretty tame–nothing remotely comparable to the decades-long outpouring of love-notes by the U.S. media to the Stalinist, mass-murdering, dictator 90 miles off our shores whose lifelong craving was to incinerate...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — North Korea said Friday it can't pay nearly $184,000 in dues to the United Nations because of U.N. sanctions that prevent the transfer of funds from Pyongyang. North Korea's U.N. Mission said sanctions imposed by the Security Council in early August on the Foreign Trade Bank of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, which is in charge of international transactions, made payment impossible. The mission said Ambassador Ja Song Nam met Undersecretary-General for Management Jan Beagle Friday afternoon to request the opening of "banking channels" to make the DPRK's required $183,458 payment for 2018 for the...

    As the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis’ election draws near, we hear repeatedly that we are facing a dramatic and absolutely unprecedented ‘page’ in the history of the Church. This is only partly true. The Church has always experienced tragic times which have seen the laceration of the Mystical Body since its very beginnings on Calvary right up to the present day.The younger generations don’t know and the older generations have forgotten how terrible the years that followed the Second Vatican Council were, of which the present age is the result. Forty years ago while the 1968 revolt was erupting,...

    The state-run Global Times said the Pope had made 'substantive concessions' to China The Vatican and Beijing will re-establish diplomatic ties “sooner or later” thanks to the “wisdom” of Pope Francis, a Chinese government-run newspaper has said.The Global Times said in an editorial that the Pope had made “substantive concessions” to the Chinese government. Relations are therefore taking a “clearer shape” despite the opposition of “Western media and certain radical religious groups opposed to enhanced Sino-Vatican ties”.The column comes after an unnamed senior Vatican source told Reuters that the Holy See and China were close to signing a deal on...

    Perhaps the word “swoon” in the headline strikes some of my amigos as unnecessarily hyperbolic?—as typical “click-bait?”Fair enough. Let’s have a closer look at the issue for a more accurate evaluation. Here’s indignant Trump SOTU boycotter Barbara Lee (D-CA) explaining her indignation and boycott:“On January 20th, I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House."Now here’s Lee upon “copping a backstage pass” (so to speak) upon one of her frequent red-carpet visits to Cuba to “meet and greet” the jailer and torturer of the most and longest suffering black,...

    In several decades of living in Washington, D.C., I’ve met my share of scamps and scalawags, fabulists and outright liars. It would take a modern Dante to determine which circle of Inferno each type of misbehavior merited. But of one thing, I am certain: at least in my own experience, I’ve never encountered more brazen and manipulative liars than Communist Chinese officials responsible for relations with religious believers. Which is what makes it so disturbing that last week reports surfaced that the Vatican asked two underground Chinese bishops, loyal to Rome, to step aside in order to allow two bishops...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | February 1, 2018 | By Francis X. Rocca in Vatican City and Eva Dou in Beijing
    Pope Francis has decided to accept the legitimacy of seven Catholic bishops appointed by the Chinese government, a concession that the Holy See hopes will lead Beijing to recognize his authority as head of the Catholic Church in China, according to a person familiar with the plan. For years, the Vatican didn’t recognize the bishops’ ordinations, which were carried out in defiance of the pope and considered illicit, part of a long-running standoff between the Catholic Church and China’s officially atheist Communist Party....

    Underground Church as a pawn in China’s political game, a thorn in the side of the Holy See Lay and clerical members of the official and underground Church speak about the Vatican’s decision to force out recognised underground bishops in favour of bishops approved by the Chinese government. A source of sadness, anger, and distress, some warn that in so doing the underground Church is forsaken, as the Holy See puts the whole Chinese Church in the hands of political power. Despite everything, people hold to obedience and hope. Rome (AsiaNews) – The fate of the underground Church, China’s unsanctioned...

    Vatican Delegation Demands Resignation of Two Catholic Bishops in Favor of Schismatic Puppets of Beijing by Christopher A. Ferrara January 24, 2018 Almost daily, a new scandal erupts from the Vatican. The situation has become so outrageous that now even decidedly mainstream journals such as The Catholic Herald are pulling no punches in telling the truth about the increasingly alarming course of this pontificate. Thus, the Herald now unsparingly reports the revolting news that “The Holy See has reportedly asked two Chinese bishops to stand aside to make way for illicitly ordained, Chinese government-backed counterparts.” Note well: a mainstream Catholic...

    Last December, Mgr Peter Zhuang Jianjian of Shantou (Guangdong) was forced to go to Beijing where "a foreign prelate" from the Vatican asked him to leave his see to illicit bishop Joseph Huang Bingzhang. He had received the same request last October. Mgr Joseph Guo Xijin, ordinary bishop of Mindong, is expected to become the auxiliary or coadjutor of illicit Bishop Vincent Zhan Silu. Sinicizing the Chinese Church means supporting the principle of independence and follow the leadership of the Communist Party. Guangzhou (AsiaNews) – The Holy See has asked Bishop Peter Zhuang Jianjian of Shantou in southern Guangdong province...

Communist ideology is very similar to Christianity, in fact: freedom, equality, brotherhood, justice – everything is laid out in the Holy Scripture,...

    Cables Portray Expanded Reach of Drug Agency By GINGER THOMPSON and SCOTT SHANE WASHINGTON — The Drug Enforcement Administration has been transformed into a global intelligence organization with a reach that extends far beyond narcotics, and an eavesdropping operation so expansive it has to fend off foreign politicians who want to use it against their political enemies, according to secret diplomatic cables. In far greater detail than previously seen, the cables, from the cache obtained by WikiLeaks and made available to some news organizations, offer glimpses of drug agents balancing diplomacy and law enforcement in places where it can be...

    Imprisoned former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori has been pardoned by incumbent leader Pedro Pablo Kuczynski. Mr. Kuczynski's office said in a statement that Fukimori, 79, was being released on health grounds. Fujimori-who was in power from 1990 to 2000-was recently taken from prison to hospital because of low blood pressure and abnormal heart rhythm. He has been serving a 25-year sentence for human rights abuses and corruption..... He was admired by some Peruvians for combating Maoist rebels, whereas his critics consider him a corrupt dictator. Fujimori has been in and out of hospital for a variety of health problems in...

    Yes Sholom Rubashkin Is FACTUALLY Innocent For my dear friends who have embraced darkness at a time of great joy, understand that your scary swan song is reminiscent of one who greets the news that a 95 year old has survived a quadruple heart attack (may Hashem protect all) with a loud “he's not worth celebrating. I remember him when he was six months old and he once spat up on his grandmother.” The only difference here is that the only vomit in this case are the lies and negativity themselves. Before jumping head first into the mud (we will,...

The very day when Morales was in the Vatican, his government introduced legislation allowing for more abortion of innocent children. At this occasion, the Bolivian vice-president Álvaro García Linera attacked the clergy, “I do not accept that the priests interfere in things regarding the body of the woman.” In the Vatican Morales greeted Francis with the words “Good day, Brother Pope Francis”.
