    The owner of a sporting goods store in Colorado says his shop is going out of business after he stopped selling Nike products over the company's controversial campaign with Colin Kaepernick. Prime Time Sports, in Colorado Springs, is shuttering its doors after "21 mostly good years," owner Stephen Martin wrote on Facebook Monday. He advertised 40 percent off all merchandise, and thanked those who "offered help and support through the 'Honor The Flag' memorial wall and NIKE boycott."Martin said he can't afford to stay open anymore after he stopped selling Nike products, in protest after the sports brand featured Kaepernick,...
  • Venezuelan Cardinal Rejects Maduro's Call for Vatican Mediation

    The cardinal said previous Vatican interventions had resulted in a 'mockery' The Archbishop of Merida has ruled out Vatican mediation of the Venezuelan crisis after president Nicolas Maduro made public a letter to Pope Francis requesting intervention. “I think the circumstances say no. Why? Because it’s a call with a blank sheet of paper, but to talk about what, there’s no prior agenda,” Cardinal Baltazar Enrique Porras Cardozo of Merida told Radio Continental, an Argentine news station, on February 6. The cardinal, who is also serving as apostolic administrator of the Caracas archdiocese, noted that on prior occasions when the...

    Openly acknowledging them as our enemies rather than continuing to whitewash them as our merely-misguided “countrymen” or “friends across the aisle”—sinister, deceptive, megalomaniacal totalitarians with whom we have not a mild difference of opinion but a fundamental conflict over basic human rights and the nature of legitimate government, a conflict not amenable to reconciliation or satisfactory compromise—might be a good start on that

    Francis Names Extremist As Lima Archbishop Pope Francis quickly accepted on January 25 the resignation of Lima Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani, Peru, who turned 75 on December 28. Cipriani is a neoconservative member of the Opus Dei. His successor will be Father Carlos Castillo Mattasoglio, 68. He has been a theology professor at the rebellious Catholic University of Peru since 1987. According to, Castillo had links to the Revolutionary Communist Party in Peru. Fernandez de la Cigoña writes that Castillo is “much worse” than Francis’ ghostwriter and kissing expert, La Plata Archbishop Víctor Manuel Fernández. Picture: Carlos Castillo Mattasoglio,...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar is the latest public figure to catch the attention of the attorney for the Covington Catholic students, Robert Barnes, who is threatening to sue just about anyone who he thinks spread “libel” against his clients. “This is libel. Retract, or get sued,” Barnes tweeted, quoting a now-deleted tweet from the Minnesota Democrat in which she claimed the teens were at fault for the confrontation Saturday at the Indigenous People’s March in Washington, D.C., between the students from the Northern Kentucky school and Native American Nathan Phillips. “The boys were protesting a woman’s right to choose & yelled...

    Why is the Vatican defending Venezuela’s illegitimate president? anuary 18, 2019 (American Thinker) – In the wake of Venezuela's President Nicolás Maduro swearing himself into office after a fraudulent election, the global consensus is that the regime ruling in Caracas is illegitimate. It's so bad that the news accounts call the Maduro regime "isolated." Brazil, led by President Jair Bolsonaro, not only refused to recognize the regime, but openly recognized the constitutionally mandated succession of the Venezuelan National Assembly's leader, Juan Guaidó. That's who's president to his country. Other nations, such as Paraguay, cut ties to the regime and pulled their envoys. The United States and Canada have come close...

    Ultimately, finding an optimal tax rate for the super-rich is a moral and political issue as much as an economic one. Last week, when 60 Minutes aired an interview with newly sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman New York congressperson caused an uproar with what, by Washington standards, seemed a rather immodest proposal. Asked whether an expansion of public investment in green technologies would require raising taxes, she cited history.

    Liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is rolling out a new plan that would potentially allow the city government to seize buildings of landlords who force tenants out -- a plan his opponents say amounts to “straight communism.” De Blasio, in his State of the City address on Thursday, announced he wants to take action against landlords who try to force tenants out by making the property unliveable -- and pulled out an executive order to create a Mayor’s Office to Protect Tenants. He said that in the event the government intervenes, the buildings would then be controlled...

    Vatican, Venezuela bishops play ‘good cop/bad cop’ with Maduro ROSARIO, Argentina - A day after the bishops of Venezuela declared the new presidency of Nicolas Maduro “illegitimate,” Pope Francis sent a Vatican representative to his inauguration. The successor of the late Hugo Chavez thanked Monsignor George Koovakod for his “bravery” for coming.Many observers say the apparent contrast isn’t a matter of the Vatican and the bishops being at odds, but rather a classic “good cop, bad cop” diplomatic maneuver.Maduro took office for the second time on Thursday, amidst criticism from the international community of snap elections in May. Concerns over...

    [PHOTO] The modern Socialist doesn’t have an actual brain. [PHOTO] Their substitute-brain, Karl Marx, wrote THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO, in 1848. And, ever since then, Communism/Socialism has had an unbroken record: over 170 years of utter failure, everywhere it was tried. Yet, the communist-inspired philospher—the Socialist—still beatifically calls for world-wide socialism. In these days of an American Trump, and a wild jackass, anti-America, “Resistance,” the Socialist, smiley-face, “look” has changed. It alternates between bug-eyed madness and fanged violence. “Socialists may not be able to claim experience, learning, smarts, or success. But they make up for all that by a boundless certitude.......

    Like most new inventions, after the fact, the Instant Pot might seem like a mere technological accomplishment. Why couldn’t socialist planners mobilize scientists and do the same thing? Like millions of Americans, newly elected New York democratic socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loves the Instant Pot multicooker. She has been having Instagram Live conversations about politics while she cooks with her Instant Pot. In November, Ocasio-Cortez asked her 1.2 million Twitter followers to post their favorite Instant Pot recipes. Perhaps she should ask her Twitter followers to explain to her how markets work to produce innovations like Instant Pots. There are...

    ZTE reportedly hires former Sen. Joe Lieberman to spearhead a national security assessment of its products. "There are obviously still concerns about the safety of their products or the extent to which their products could be used to compromise American security in any way or even individual security," Lieberman tells Politico in an interview. ZTE has "decided to really try to get ahead of those concerns and be in a position to answer them," he says. Lieberman adds that while he will register as a lobbyist, he will be focusing on his national security evaluation and won't actually lobby for...

    Remember Hollywood’s old obsession with the “blacklisting” of alleged communists? Movie after movie captured that dark chapter in American history, each film wagging a cinematic finger at industry insiders who punished Communist sympathizers — or just folks suspected of harboring such thoughts. Think “The Front,” “The Majestic,” “Trumbo,” “Guilty by Suspicion” and “Good Night, and Good Luck.” That was then. Today, people who hold what the Hollywood elite consider untenable views — such as those who believe in protecting the U.S. border — are targeted, shamed and made to fear for their careers. It’s happening both inside Tinsel Town and...

    France suspends controversial fuel tax after weeks of unrest By James McAuley December 4 at 6:40 AM PARIS — French Prime Minister Édouard Philippe announced Tuesday that the French government would temporarily suspend the controversial carbon tax plan that triggered weeks of often violent protests around the country. To help curb climate change, the government had proposed a slew of new carbon taxes that were slated to take effect in January 2019 and were designed to wean consumers off diesel and other polluting fuels and to favor electric cars. But the price hikes those taxes represented triggered a wave of...

    How to explain a Pope who boasts of his mentor being a communist? Who smuggled leftist literature into his sanctuary when he was merely a priest in his native Argentina? Who talks about American capitalism in terms more extreme than does Bernie Sanders and with equal ignorance? George Neumayr in his new book, The Political Pope, with immense erudition and elegant prose, tells us the whole story of Father Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s rise from Argentine cleric to become Pope Francis.
