    US ambassador cites Pope Francis in urging Zambia to embrace homosexuality December 7, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The U.S. ambassador to Zambia quoted Pope Francis this week in urging the people of Zambia to adopt a softer line on homosexuality, amid an ongoing debate over a 15-year prison sentence for two men convicted of sodomy. Japhet Chabata and Steven Samba were convicted last year of sex “against the order of nature,” with Judge Charles Zulu rejecting an appeal of their sentence last week. Daniel Foote, the U.S. Ambassador to Zambia, responded that he was “horrified” by the “oppressive sentencing,” which he said...

    I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here fans were horrified last night after no friends or family members arrived to greet Caitlyn Jenner when she was voted out of the show. Following her exit interview with Ant and Dec, Caitlyn walked across the bridge to pose for photos. At the end of the bridge, evicted contestants are usually met by a friend or family member, but none of Caitlyn's family, including her 10 children, showed up, which left fans calling the Kardashians "cancelled". Fans had already been upset at the Kardashians' treatment of Cait on the show, tweeting their...

    Joe Biden hit back at a reporter who asked him whether calling an Iowa voter a "damn liar" was comparable to rhetoric from President Trump. "No, no, no, no, no, don't compare me to Donald Trump. Don't do that," the former vice president shot back at an NPR reporter when she made the comparison Saturday. Biden said Trump makes fun of people and lies, adding, "I don't do any of those things." "The fact of the matter is this guy stood up, and he was, in fact, lying. And I just pointed out, 'You're a liar.' It's a fact," he...

    A day after Rudy Giuliani called for "a large-scale joint investigation" between Ukraine and the United States, President Donald Trump says Giuliani has "found plenty" and "wants to go before Congress" with a report. "I just know he came back from someplace and he's going to make a report, I think to the attorney general and the Congress," Trump told reporters before heading for Florida on Saturday. "He's going to give us a lot of good information. "I haven't spoken to him about that information. But Rudy, as you know, has been one of the great crime fighters in the...

    Democrats have finally admitted the genius of our founding fathers, a big break from their usual descriptions of them as white supremacists. In a new report , titled Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment, released Saturday, the majority staff on the House Judiciary Committee has attempted to expand the definition of what constitutes an impeachable offense so that seemingly any president throughout America's history would now be subject to impeachment. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler felt the need to write a forward attempting to explain why such a report is needed in the first place. While Nadler admits that other...

    September 9, 2015 (LepantoInstitute) -- In light of the recent videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of the organs and tissues of preborn babies, the Lepanto Institute interviewed former satanic High Wizard, Zachary King. Zachary was an average boy from an American neighborhood who grew up in a Baptist home. He began practicing magick at 10, joined a satanic coven at 13, and had broken all 10 Commandments by the time he was 15 years old. From his teen years to adulthood he worked his way up to High Wizard in the coven and actively pushed satan’s agenda including ritualistic abortions....

    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks argued 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden had “one of the best weeks of the campaign” and Biden’s confrontation with a voter in Iowa “showed vigor, showed toughness,” and gave Biden control of the news cycle. Brooks stated, “I do think Joe Biden had a — one of the best weeks of the campaign. He had an ad mocking…President Trump…and then he went after that voter. Which I think showed vigor, showed toughness, showed he’s doing well, and I think also allowed him to control the news...

    Queen Nancy the First? On her Saturday morning MSNBC show, Joy Reid set out on a loud-and-proud feminist jag as she sought to pump up Nancy Pelosi. But the effort backfired. She claimed that impeachment was designed to prevent President Trump from becoming a "king." But she wound up painting an unflattering portrait of Pelosi as a disdainful member of royalty who misuses her power to abuse her lessers. As Reid portrayed her, Pelosi is someone who should only be approached by the peons of the media when she deigns to call on them. And woe betide those, like James...

    The House Judiciary Committee on Saturday released a report addressing the constitutional grounds for impeaching President Trump as its members prepare to move the process forward. Written by staffers for the committee’s Democratic majority, the 55-page report was issued amid Republicans including Mr. Trump continuing to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the ongoing impeachment inquiry threatening his presidency. “Impeachment is the Constitution’s final answer to a President who mistakes himself for a monarch,” reads an excerpt from the report’s introduction.Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, New York Democrat, said similar reports were prepared during the impeachments of former Presidents Richard Nixon...

    The House Judiciary Committee released on Saturday a report that attempts to define what the founders of the Constitution meant in their impeachment clause, days after the Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) asked the committee’s chair to move forward in impeaching President Donald Trump. The 52-page report, titled “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment” (pdf), is meant to act as a guide for impeachment as the committee’s Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) prepares to draft articles of impeachment against the president. The report was drafted by majority staff and provides details about the “history, purpose, and meaning” of Article II, Section 4, of the Constitution—the...

    No one knows what Articles of Impeachment the Democrats may invent but from what I’ve been able to make of the hearing so far it appears they want to impeach President Trump for going 56 M.P.H. in a clearly marked 55 M.P.H. speed limit. Listening to the media hype before the hearings I thought they accused President Trump of going 95 M.P.H. in a 35 M.P.H. speed limit zone.

    (CNN)The latest economic numbers -- 266,000 jobs created in November, unemployment at a 50-year low -- make one thing very clear: President Donald Trump has a path to win a second term next year. Yes, you can quibble about whether the strong November report or the upward revisions in job gains for the last two months or the broader upswing in the economy is due to Trump and his policies. But what we know -- both from our political history and more recent polling -- is that presidents get credit when the economy is strong and blame when it is...

    Evangelist Ray Comfort is well-known for presenting unbelievers with "the good person" test, asking them if they've ever broken any of the Ten Commandments in order to demonstrate that everyone is a sinner and "there is no one who does good, no, not one," (Romans 3:10-12, Psalm 14:1-3). So many people, though, still don't believe that they're sinners even after being confronted with their sin. Satan has blinded them with self-love. But if unbelievers today in places like America are less likely to acknowledge their own evil nature, they might be more likely to admit the evil nature in the...

    [Catholic Caucus] Pope Francis: Amoris Laetitia is ‘the Magisterium of the Church’ on divorced and remarried BANGKOK, Thailand, December 6, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― Pope Francis told Jesuits in Thailand that how the Church should behave pastorally to Catholics who are “divorced and remarried” is found in chapter 8 of his controversial 2016 exhortation Amoris Laetitia, a teaching that has been used by bishops around the world to allow Catholics living objectively in adultery to receive Holy Communion. The pope indicated that such teaching is the “Magisterium of the Church.” While meeting with a group of Southeastern Jesuits in Bangkok...

    The Justice Department’s internal watchdog has determined that political bias did not influence the federal investigation of potential links between Russia and the Trump campaign in 2016, according to people familiar with the matter, countering White House claims of deliberate partisan influence. Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who will release his long-anticipated report Monday, also found that the FBI had enough evidence to justify obtaining a foreign intelligence warrant in 2016 to conduct secret surveillance of a former Trump campaign advisor who had multiple contacts with Russian officials, the people said. The report’s findings are expected to effectively reject or dismiss...
