    President Trump blamed the embarrassing mix-up at the end of the Oscars on the awards’ show focus on him. “I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” Trump told Breitbart in an interview Monday, the day after the show messed up and awarded the wrong movie with its most prestigious award, Best Picture. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway named “La La Land” the winner, but then had to yank the award away and give it to the real winner, “Moonlight.”

    Pope Francis urged parish priests participating in a Vatican-run course titled the “New Marriage Procedure” to “welcome” cohabitating couples living in fornication who “prefer to live together without getting married.” The pope did not ask priests to admonish such couples for living in grave sin nor did he ask them to work for their conversion and repentance. “At the same time, make yourselves close with the style of the Gospel itself, in the encounter and welcome of those young people that prefer living together without getting married,” he told priests at the Saturday, February 25 event organized by the Roma...

    Once again, CNN is back in the headlines as a fake news outlet.  This time, it comes from a federal judge, who did not refer to CNN as a complete fake news media corporation, but did say they that they were "acting recklessly with regard to the accuracy of its report, i.e., with ‘actual malice'."  The ruling from the judge allows the case to move forward and shoots down CNN pleading that the case be dismissed. Law News reports: Those who accuse CNN and other mainstream media outlets of “fake news” will probably revel in a recent decision by a federal...

    A twentieth-century repetition of the mistakes of ancient Rome would be inexcusable.Rome was eight and a half centuries old when the poet, Juvenal, penned his famous tirade against his degenerate countrymen. About 100 A.D. he wrote: “Now that no one buys our votes, the public has long since cast off its cares; the people that once bestowed commands, consulships, legions and all else, now meddles no more and longs eagerly for just two things, bread and circuses.” (Carcopino, Daily Life in Roman Times [New Haven, Yale University Press, 1940], p. 202.) Forty years later, the Roman historian, Fronto, echoed the...

    PHOENIX - The speaker of the Arizona House said Monday he won't hear a bill that makes participating in or helping organize a protest that turns into a riot an offense that could lead to criminal racketeering charges. The measure passed last week by the Senate drew nationwide attention because it added rioting to the organized crime statutes and said an overt act isn't needed to prove conspiracy to riot. That attention led Speaker J.D. Mesnard to decide Monday to kill it for the session.

    The book The Shack has sold over 25 million copies worldwide and has been translated into numerous languages, so it’s not a surprise that Hollywood has decided to cash in on its popularity with a blockbuster movie. While the book is marketed as a “Christian novel” and the movie is marketed to Christians, it simply isn’t based on Biblical Christianity. In fact, it’s full of heresy. The number of Christians who are singing its praises is evidence of the lack of discernment prevalent in American Evangelicalism. What’s even more concerning is that many Christian pastors and teachers are endorsing the...

Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis told reporters that it was the framework for a broader plan and looked at Islamic State around the world, not just Iraq and Syria. Davis said the plan would define what defeating Islamic State meant and was one that would rapidly defeat the militant group. He added that Mattis would discuss the plan, which is primarily a written one with...

    Univision senior anchor Jorge Ramos declared on Friday that the United States belongs to Latino migrants, emphatically stating to a Spanish-speaking audience that “it is our country, not theirs.” Ramos took an unusual tack, pivoting from talk of diversity and togetherness into boasts of conquest. Mass immigration, particularly illegal immigration, was a fait accompli. There is nothing the U.S. can do about it, and they must accept that America is “not their” country and that illegal aliens, particularly Latinos, “are not going to leave,” he said. “I am an immigrant, just like many of you,” Ramos said in Spanish, as...

In addition to releasing details of the investigation, the board voted Tuesday to fire the accounting firm that gave it a clean audit just a month before Brantley Thomas, 60, was accused of misappropriating funds. The board also called Tuesday for an internal investigation into the district’s finances.

    The invite list by Democrat members of Congress reads like yet another staged protest like so many in recent years that resulted in costly mayhem and damage. This time, though, it won’t be a protest on city streets, but rather within the halls of Congress itself as President Donald Trump takes center stage to lay out his year one agenda for the nation to the legislators responsible for turning that agenda into law. Both Democrats and the Establishment Media see it as yet another opportunity to try and challenge and embarrass the president. The anti-president mood will be unprecedented. Remarkable...

    You may recall from the 2016 campaign trail that many of our media mavens lectured then candidate Donald Trump about his plans to bully our NATO allies into paying their fair share of defense costs. This was widely viewed in liberal circles as an unreasonable attitude, with some even suggesting that it could discount America’s place as a global leader. It turns out that, yet again, President Trump decided to make good on his promise when he sent his new Secretary of Defense across the pond to deliver precisely that message.

Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.” Throughout his campaign, Trump made it clear that manufacturing jobs have been leaving the U.S. for far too long, while the politicians who betrayed middle-class Americans in favor of offshore production watched from the comfort of Washington. Trump noted that as president and “Dealmaker-in-Chief” he would engender a second golden age of American manufacturing. President-Elect, Donald Trump put this fanfaronade into action, making...

    Watching the debate between Heather Mac Donald and Edward Stringham was a fascinating experience for a number of reasons, foremost among them being that it presented two deeply contrasting visions of right wing thought. The former shaped by a deep reverence for social cohesion and ordered liberty, while the latter is influenced by a deeply-held anti-authoritarianism and faith in an unencumbered free market. The point of dispute was criminal justice reform, which was framed by the debate resolution, “There’s a war on cops, and it’s making us less safe.” Mac Donald, naturally, responded in the affirmative, asserting that the most...

Whether you agree with their objections to either pipeline (and I don’t), at least they offered some specific rationale for why they were opposed. It’s not as if they’re just going to mindlessly oppose every pipeline anyone ever proposes, because that would be nothing more than knee-jerk opposition to energy-related infrastructure driven by reflexive opposition to fossil fuels. You do that, no one is going...

Vetrano’s father Philip pleaded to let cops use a “familial DNA search,” a new tool that might’ve helped ID the culprit. But that required a state commission’s OK. Mr. Vetrano was still gathering petition signatures to get that approval when cops got their man without the search. But why make detectives get any OK to use this tool?

Although he is not, technically speaking, a member of any political party - the affiliation is more a kind of “shorthand to describe my values to voters,” he says - his second-time run for a Council seat is couched in the belief that, in Seattle, anyway, “it’s not enough anymore to be an establishment Democrat.” The events of the past year, and especially of the past few months, seem to echo that sentiment.

Furry Friends Rockin Rescue, a local animal rescue near Bismark, North Dakota, says they’re working to catch all of the abandoned animals, and so far, they’ve managed to rescue two dogs and six puppies. They believe, however, that the dogs represent only a small fraction of the pets left behind at the...

    Racial crime in the west has become a reason for anxiety among the Indian students, after a navy veteran was charged with murder for shooting two Indian software engineers at a crowded bar in Olathe, Kansas. The crime triggered anger and concern that the Trump-era US is no longer secure for the Indian masses. The assailant, Adam Purinton is accused of killing Srinivas Kuchibhotla, and wounding Alok Madasani, both who were admitted to work for a global tech company on H-1B visas after completing graduate studies in the United States. Anupam Singh, a master’s student at the Indian Institute of...
  • Kim Jong-Un Guns Down Five (Additional) Senior Officials With An Anti-Aircraft Gun

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un executed another batch of senior officials, South Korea’s spy agency revealed Monday. Kim pulled out the anti-aircraft gun for the execution of five senior officials, charged with submitting false government reports, according to South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS). North Korea fired state security chief Kim Won-hong last month for corruption, abuse, and torture. The five officials reportedly killed by the regime worked in Kim’s office and were executed for providing inaccurate reports. The false data provided by the officials is said to have “enraged” the young despot Kim Jong-un. The NIS did not reveal...

    $100 billion disappeared. That’s the figure that Warren E. Buffett recently calculated that pension funds, endowments and wealthy individuals have lost over the last decade to hedge funds and other money managers that charge sky-high fees. “I believe my calculation of the aggregate shortfall is conservative,” Mr. Buffett wrote in his annual letter, released on Saturday to the shareholders of his conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway. The letter, which ricocheted around Wall Street to the consternation of some and the applause of others, was Mr. Buffett’s most damning assessment of the hedge fund industry to date, and it came amid a growing...

    Before the best picture gaffe stole the show last night, Hollywood took some shots at President Trump during the Academy Awards, a chorus political strategists say plays right into the president’s hands and solidifies his status as the antithesis of liberal elites. Kimmel mockingly referred to Streep as “overrated,” something Trump called Streep in a dismissive tweet. GOP strategist Ford O’Connell said the Americans who put Trump in the White House would likely be put off by quips at the commander in chief. “Any time Hollywood liberals politically grandstand it helps the president,” O’Connell said. “Ordinary Americans have never been...

    Shortened title. Full title: Exclusive — President Trump: Oscars ‘Were Focused so Hard on Politics’ They Could Not Get the Basics of the Ceremony Right President Donald Trump, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in the Oval Office, said that the Academy Awards failure on Sunday evening was due in large part to Hollywood’s obsessive focus on politics—attacking him, generally speaking.

    Tomorrow night, President Trump is going to give the most important speech that he's had the opportunity to present so far in the 45 days since he became president. Dennis Michael Lynch [DML] has some excellent advice for the president that I hope he takes so the important narrative of what he wants and needs to do to Make America Great Again doesn't get lost in the tall weeds of "fake news", the election results ["I won"] or them vs us.

    In an infrequent moment of criticism, Fox News commentator Sean Hannity, an unflinching defender of President Donald Trump, admitted that the commander in chief is “too sensitive at times.” Conservative radio show host and Washington Post columnist Hugh Hewitt, after arguing that Trump is “President Promise Keeper,” asked Hannity: “What’s the negative? What’s the one thing that bothers you about him?” The Fox host, who agreed with Hewitt’s assessment that Trump has kept his campaign promises so far, said that it might, in fact, be the president’s stick-to-itivness that has hurt him. Hannity said Trump is “not a perfect person.”...
