The Knights have supplied olive wood solidarity crosses, manufactured in the Middle East, to raise financial support for Christian [...]



Former AG Mukasey: Comey Memos Were Classified When Written; Hillary Was Cleared to Spare Obama

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 20:18:52 +0000

Laura Ingraham interviewed Former Attorney General and former federal District Judge Michael Mukasey on her Friday Ingraham Angle show. Mukasey reminded viewers, contrary to assertions made by most other so-called experts, that memos and notes prepared by former FBI Director James Comey while he performed his federal duties “were classified as soon as he wrote [...]



Will Press Report That CDC Suppressed Defensive Gun Use Data for Decades?

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 14:02:33 +0000

Gun-control advocates want the Centers for Disease Control to be allowed to engage in research on gun violence. If the CDC is so impartial and reliable, why did it withhold late-1990s results of survey questions on gun ownership’s role in self-defense for over two decades? This news of a government cover-up is tailor-made for establishment press [...]

Positivity: Mass in sign language? These Spanish priests celebrate it every week

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 09:55:33 +0000

From Madrid, Spain: Apr 20, 2018 / 04:26 pm In the Catholic Church, the spoken language is central to the liturgy: we recite the Nicene Creed as one, we praise the Lord with the Gloria that we sing, and we bow our heads to hear the blessing we receive at the end of Mass. But [...]



Now That There Will Be a Primary, Utah GOP Voters Should Know What to Do Now

Sun, 22 Apr 2018 06:23:38 +0000

Vote for Mike Kennedy in the June 26 primary, and send Mitt Romney into private life once and for all. Congratulations to Kennedy supporters for standing up for sensible conservative values at Saturday’s convention. Utahans who think Mitt Romney would make a genuinely strong U.S. Senator need to do some serious research. Fortunately, yours truly has done [...]



WashPost Almost Sympathizes With Gun-Controllers Harassing Chris Cox

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 17:22:06 +0000

In 2010, some Obamacare opponents conducted scattered protests at politicians’ homes. They backed away from the tactic when Tea Party groups and others declared that home protests should be out of bounds. Don’t expect leftist protesters to receive any similar admonishments — especially if they continue to receive borderline-sympathetic coverage like protesting gun-control promoters, and [...]



Positivity: In Haiti, Catholic Relief Services builds hospital to last

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 14:30:02 +0000

From Port-au-Prince, Haiti: Apr 19, 2018 / 03:02 am The tremor lasted less than a minute. Dr. Jude Banatte’s car was shaking, and then it was not. Banatte assumed he was driving too fast as he made his way home from the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince that day in January 2010. He slowed down. But [...]

Trouble Signs in California’s Jobs Market

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 01:06:09 +0000

California Governor Jerry Brown’s bragging about the performance of California’s economy has been overwrought for years. The so-called Golden State’s unemployment rate has never fallen below the national average during Brown’s tenure. As of March, at 4.3 percent (vs. 4.1 percent nationally), it’s as close as it’s ever been, but for the wrong reasons: The [...]



AP Is Now Reluctant to Admit That Comey ‘Leaked’ Memos Last Year (Instead, They Were ‘Revealed’)

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 23:47:10 +0000

Friday, the Associated Press reported that in early 2017, President Donald Trump and then-FBI Director James Comey agreed there should be a crackdown on leaks from within the administration. But the AP reporters refused to apply any form of the word “leak” to Comey’s release of a memo through an intermediary to the New York [...]

AP Pretends That New Cuban President Diaz-Canel Was ‘Elected’

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 20:50:52 +0000

The Associated Press and many of the AP’s colleagues in the establishment press have had a nearly 60-year romance with Cuba’s brutal communist regime. They have frequently regaled readers with the island nation’s “free healthcare” and “free education,” as if that makes up for the fact that the typical Cuban subsists on far less than [...]
