    UP to eight people have been killed after a gunman stormed BPM festival in Mexico's popular tourist hotspot Playa Del Carmen. Shots were fired in the early hours of the morning at the dance and music event, which attracts a whole host of DJs from across the world, including UK artists. A gunman reportedly fired through an open window at the Blue Parrot club in Playa Del Carmen, which is a popular tourist hotspot with British and American music fans. The popular nightclub was one of the several venues holding a closing party for the event, which featured 150 of...

    A deadly shootout at the construction site of the new American Consulate occurred this week in a Mexican border town where Islamic terrorists and drug cartels plan to launch attacks against the U.S. during the period surrounding the presidential inauguration, high-level government sources tell Judicial Watch. An unknown number of gunmen fired multiple rounds adjacent to the new U.S. Consulate compound in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, a crime-infested city in the state of Tamaulipas that lies directly across from Laredo, Texas.

    Director of the Office of Government Ethics Walter M. Shaub donated to President Obama before his appointment and defended Hillary Clinton’s decision to not disclose paid speeches to the Clinton Foundation while she was secretary of state. Shaub, the head of the little-known ethics office, has been on the attack against President-elect Donald J. Trump for months. Shaub has called Trump’s plan to sign over control of his business to his sons “meaningless,” and engaged in tweet storms from the official ethics Twitter account encouraging Trump to divest.

    Mass Shooting Reported During BPM Festival in Mexico A mass shooting has rocked the Mexican resort town of Playa Del Carmen where the BPM Festival was wrapping up, according to reports. Unverified witness accounts suggest four or five people were killed when shots were fired at Blue Parrot during Elrow's closing party late Sunday night or early Monday morning. A security guard was said to be among those fatally injured. A separate shooting reportedly took place during a BPM closing party at The Jungle, where the likes of John Acquaviva, Stacey Pullen and David Berrie were booked to play. Clips...

    The Washington Post wrote on Friday that President-elect Donald J. Trump “fired” the commanding General of the D.C. National Guard who is heading up the military presence during the coming inaugural event — in the middle of the oath of office ceremony. Yet a second story on Saturday did not contain the claim. The Post’s original report set off a wave of stories across the world, causing raised eyebrows over Trump’s “extremely unusual” decision to fire a general in the middle of the presidential oath of office ceremony, especially during these dangerous times. The paper reported that Major General Errol...

Slated for Wednesday, January 18, the teach-in, dubbed #J18, is taking place between the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and Trump’s inauguration. The event’s planners say: Let it be known that on #J18 and beyond, universities, colleges, and high schools refused to bear silent witness to the politics of hate and fear; that in these times, these places...

    A 1989 photograph of Donald Trump tossing a red apple was installed today at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. The museum is known for having one of two complete collections of presidential portraits, the other belonging to the White House. This portrait of President-elect Donald Trump, however, isn't one of those official presidential portraits. The image by photographer Michael O'Brien became part of the museum's collection in 2011 as a gift from Bill and Sally Wittliff, along with 16 other portraits taken by O'Brien. While it wasn't known at the time that the photograph would one day...

    Article V Blog ^ | January 16th 2017 | Rodney Dodsworth
    As Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, George Washington knew like no other man of the shortcomings of the Articles of Confederation (AC). From the despair at Valley Forge in 1777-78, and a congressional recommendation that he plunder the Pennsylvania countryside for supplies, George Washington and his men felt the full measure of inadequate government. On March 15th 1783, Washington prevented a mutiny of his army encamped at Newburgh NY that would have changed the course of American history. The Revolutionary War did not end with victory at Yorktown; British troops still held New York, Charleston, Savannah, and western outposts. Ironically,...

    WASHINGTON — Legendary journalist Bob Woodward on Sunday clashed with his former “Watergate” reporting partner over the intelligence briefing of President-elect Donald Trump on the salacious allegations contained in an unverified dossier of opposition research. “I’ve lived in this world for 45 years where you get things and people make allegations,” Woodward told FOX News Sunday. “That is a garbage document. It never should have been presented in–- as part of an intelligence briefing.” Woodward also said that “Trump’s point of view” was being “under-reported,” noting that outgoing White House Counsel Neil Eggleston could have given the briefing to incoming...

    Exclusive: The U.S. intelligence community’s unprecedented assault on an incoming U.S. president – now including spreading salacious rumors – raises questions about how long Donald Trump can hold the White House, says Daniel Lazare. Is a military coup in the works? Or are U.S. intelligence agencies laying the political groundwork for forcing Donald Trump from the presidency because they can’t abide his rejection of a new cold war with Russia? Not long ago, even asking such questions would have marked one as the sort of paranoid nut who believes that lizard people run the government. But no longer. Thanks to...

    A Canadian conservative think tank says Jane Fonda’s “an environmental hypocrite” after the left-wing activist and actress protested the Canadian oil sands in northern Alberta. The Manning Centre told The Daily Caller on Sunday that Fonda excoriates the oil sands project because the oil it yields produces greenhouse gasses. But Colin Craig, media manager for the centre, says Fonda has “a carbon footprint the size of a small town,” referring to her jet-setting lifestyle that includes a lot of world travel.

    Crux ^ | January 15, 2017 | Austen Ivereigh
    The furious reaction from critics of 'Amoris Laetitia' to the Maltese bishops' guidelines implementing it suggests that behind the debates and arguments over Francis's apostolic exhortation 'The Joy of Love' is a very old-fashioned, and still unresolved, dispute within the Church over the role of conscience. The heart of the  Amoris Laetitia disputes, which flared up again at the weekend following the Maltese bishops’ guidelines on the admission of the divorced-and-remarried to the sacraments, is not doctrine or law but the role of conscience.Both critics and partisans of the exhortation have correctly detected a clear shift in magisterial teaching in...

    <p>At 7 AM in California’s rural Central Valley, not long before the recent presidential election, I stopped to talk with an elderly irrigator on the shared border alleyway of my farm. His face was a wrinkled latticework, his false teeth yellow. His truck smelled of cigarettes, its cab overflowing with flotsam and jetsam: butts, scribbled notes, drip-irrigation parts, and empty soda cans. He rolled down the window and muttered something about the plunging water-table level and whether a weak front would bring any rain. And then, this dinosaur put one finger up on the wheel as a salutation and drove off in a dust cloud.</p>
  • Major advance in solar cells made from cheap, easy-to-use perovskite

    Berkeley News ^ | NOVEMBER 7, 2016 | Robert Sanders
    Solar cells made from an inexpensive and increasingly popular material called perovskite can more efficiently turn sunlight into electricity using a new technique to sandwich two types of perovskite into a single photovoltaic cell. Perovskite solar cells are made of a mix of organic molecules and inorganic elements that together capture light and convert it into electricity, just like today’s more common silicon-based solar cells. Perovskite photovoltaic devices, however, can be made more easily and cheaply than silicon and on a flexible rather than rigid substrate. The first perovskite solar cells could go on the market next year, and some...

    It turns out that the most important footnote in 'Amoris Laetitia' may be one that's not there, because a key passage of the document is lifted almost verbatim from a 1995 essay in theology by Archbishop Victor Fernandez -- raising troubling questions about Fernandez's role as ghostwriter, and the magisterial force of his ideas. [EditorÂ’s note: In this essay, Professor Michael Pakaluk of the Catholic University of America examines the role of Argentine Archbishop Victor Fernandez, a theological adviser to Pope Francis, in Amoris Laetitia, the pontiffÂ’s document on the family. Crux invited Fernandez to respond, and his comments appear...

    US President-elect Donald Trump labeled German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s stance on refugees a “catastrophic mistake.” He said the policy would lead to even more countries leaving the European Union after Britain. President-elect Trump heavily criticized Chancellor Merkel’s open-door policy on refugees in a joint interview published on Sunday with German tabloid newspaper Bild and British newspaper The Times of London.“I think she made one very catastrophic mistake and that was taking all of these illegals, you know, taking all of the people from wherever they come from,” he said. “And nobody even knows where they come from.

Venice’s Court for Minors said the boy “tries in every way to show that he is different” and described his attitude as “effeminate in a provocative way”, according to local paper Mattino Padova. A social services report said the child from Padua, northern Italy, suffered a “personality disorder” and argued that he has difficulty forming relationships due to dependence on his mother. It also detailed an incident in which the boy...

    Days before his inauguration, President-elect Donald J.

Mr. Trump’s criticism of Representative John Lewis of Georgia, a widely admired leader of the civil rights movement, has prompted a number of Democratic lawmakers to say they will not attend his inauguration on Friday. Blacks around the country have reacted to Mr. Trump’s remarks with fury, and the subject has dominated social media and discussions among black activists. Mr. Trump said...

After all, he said, the CIA hired him even after he admitted voting for a communist in the 1976 presidential elections.In 1980, Brennan was trying to obtain a top security clearance for the Central Intelligence Agency, and part of the process involved taking a lie detector test. He was asked: “Have you ever...

Neither Israel nor the Palestinians were represented at the conference, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed as “futile”.

    Research shows that unemployment and low socioeconomic status are linked with higher risk for addiction, compared to having a job and being in the middle class. Although the media has focused on heroin and prescription opioid misuse these days as being a “middle class” problem, the risk of addiction is more than three times higher for people making less than $20,000 compared to those who make over $50,000. These facts make President Trump’s promises to increase employment — perhaps through an infrastructure program — critical if he wants to deal with the opioid epidemic in the long run.

    The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is simply incompatible with the Trump era. President-elect Trump won as an entrepreneurial change agent who would “drain the swamp”, get Washington under control, take charge of the bureaucracies, and get things done in an entrepreneurial, common sense way. The Congressional Budget Office is the opposite of these commitments. It is a left-wing, corrupt, bureaucratic defender of big government and liberalism. Its scoring of ObamaCare was not just wrong, it was clearly corrupt. CBO literally brought in the architect of ObamaCare to be the adviser on scoring the very Obamacare legislation that he helped write....

    Spread rumors about Russian vote rigging, push protests Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives have fueled efforts to delegitimize President-elect Donald Trump, pushing allegations of his complicity with Russian email hacks and boosting protests of the inauguration. Brian Fallon, a former spokesman for the Clinton presidential campaign, has said there’s “too much evidence” that Mr. Trump was in league with Russian spies trying to rig the election. Former Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri used Twitter to circulate maps of protest sites for Mr. Trump’s inauguration on Friday. Neera Tanden, a policy adviser on Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, has made her anti-Trump stance...

    Mike Rowe. What else is there to say about the guy? He loves his country and he loves to shoot guns. He is all about hard-working Americans, and once an anti-gun advocate messaged him on Facebook to discourage his decision to speak at the SHOT show he put her in her place. Off The Wall Marla W writes... I just read that you’re speaking at the SHOT show in Las Vegas this week. VERY disappointing. There are already too many guns in this country, and too much faux patriotism surrounding the second amendment. I can’t believe you’d risk your good...

    Adding another chapter to the intense conflict between Donald Trump and the intelligence community, CIA Director John Brennan on Sunday sharply criticized the incoming president for equating spy agencies to Nazi Germany and suggested that he needed to focus more seriously on the security issues facing the nation. “What I think Mr. Trump has to understand is that this is more than being about him, and it's about the United States and our national security,” Brennan said in an interview with “Fox News Sunday." “And he has to make sure that now he's going to have the opportunity to do...

    President Obama says President-elect Donald Trump was an “unconventional candidate” who ran an “improvisational campaign.” But he doesn’t think that approach will work in the White House. In an interview that aired on “60 Minutes” Sunday, Obama was asked if it’s possible for Trump to run “an improvisational presidency.” “I don’t think so,” Obama said. “And so now he’s in the process of building up an organization. And we’ll have to see how that works. And it’ll be a test, I think, for him and the people that he’s designated to be able to execute on his vision.” But Obama...

Blacks around the country have reacted to Mr. Trump’s remarks with fury, and the subject has dominated social media and discussions among black activists. Mr. Trump said...

    The “lineamenta” (guidelines) of the forthcoming synod on young people, published January13, paved the way to a new path for the synod. Much has changed since the times when it was thought that the Synod of Bishops was going to gain more importance in the Curia – the chair of the first meetings of the heads of Vatican dicasteries under Pope Francis was Cardinal Baldisseri, the General Secretary of the Synod of Bishops. In the meantime, a major role for the Synod of Bishops in papal elections, on the basis of a plan of Pope Paul VI, was rumored. At...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said Sunday that Russian hacking altered the outcome of the presidential election. “That's what I believe. I've had all of the major classified briefings. I have been astonished at what has been a two-year effort at Russia to spear phish, to hack, to provide disinformation and propaganda wherever it really could,” said Feinstein, who until recently was the highest ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. “It's pretty clear that the hacking was of both political parties but with the aim of hurting Hillary Clinton and then, if Hillary Clinton were to win, the aim...
