    In Missouri, Bp. John Gaydos' commitment to a pro-gay diocesan measure continues to stoke tensions in the diocese of Jefferson City. On October 7, Catholics from across the Show-Me State gathered in Jefferson City to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Missouri Catholic Conference. The celebration was a momentous affair, featuring prelates Abp. Christophe Pierre, papal nuncio to the United States, and St. Louis Abp. Robert J. Carlson, in addition to Bp. Gaydos. Meanwhile, roughly two dozen faithful Catholics came together to pray the Rosary outside St. Joseph Cathedral during the commemoration's closing Mass. The vigil was organized as an...

    It’s a sleazy scenario that plays out in bars and clubs across the Big Apple: Everybody’s having a great time until some creep just can’t keep his hands to himself. But early Sunday at Bar None — a Third Avenue dive in the East Village where NYU co-eds squeeze in every weekend to chug cheap Bud and dance to ’90s rock — one of these guys would finally face the consequences. A creep put his paws all over an unwitting young woman’s boobs and backside, she said, and the victim immediately reported the sleazy moves to a bouncer.

    Representatives from Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft's office attended the Tuesday morning St. Francois County Commission meeting to briefly go over the state's new Show It 2 Vote program. Brandon Alexander and Chrissy Peters, directors of election, were introduced to the commission and those in the gallery by County Clerk Mark Hedrick. "We're just going to talk to you real quick about the changes under Missouri's new voter ID law," Alexander said. "Last November, 63 percent of Missourians voted for photo ID to go into effect and we're here to talk about the implementing legislation that puts that into...

    The Hill ^ | October 12, 2017 | BY JOSH DELK
    Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean on Thursday slammed President Trump for having "no clue" how to lead the federal recovery effort in Puerto Rico, suggesting that the Clinton Foundation — run by the family of Trump's former opponent Hillary Clinton — handle it instead. "What we should do is turn over the rehab of Puerto Rico to the Clinton Foundation. They know what they are doing," said Dean, a Hillary Clinton supporter. Dean's tweet was in response to a comment made by President Trump earlier on Thursday in which he said that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the...
  • The sound in Havana: What Americans heard in Cuba attacks

    10/12/2017 12:04:15 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 56 replies
    It sounds sort of like a mass of crickets. But not quite. A high-pitched whine, but from what? It seems to undulate, even writhe. Listen closely: Some hear multiple, distinct tones colliding in a nails-on-the-chalkboard effect. The Associated Press has obtained a recording of what some U.S. Embassy workers heard in Havana, part of the series of unnerving incidents later deemed to be deliberate attacks. The recording, released Thursday by the AP, is the first disseminated publicly of the many taken in Cuba of sounds that led investigators initially to suspect a sonic weapon. The recordings from Havana have been...

    Globalists who work to lead the masses away from their Creator are a dime a dozen It must be getting closer to Advent. Dan Brown of “Da Vinci Code” FICTION fame is back. Harvard “symbology” professor Robert Langdon, the protagonist of “The Da Vinci Code”, a work of fiction that questioned the history of Christianity, is back in Brown’s newly published novel, ‘Origin’, this time pushing the meme: “Our need for that exterior god, that sits up there and judges us ... will diminish and eventually disappear.”
  • Trump promises big tax cuts, but GOP-led Congress is already thinking about scaling back

    The Los Angeles Times ^ | October 11th, 2017 | Lisa Mascaro and Jim Puzzanghera
    President Trump promised the largest tax cut in history, but as he hit the road Wednesday to promote the plan, Republicans in Congress were quietly discussing scaling back key provisions in an effort to deliver the top White House priority. There’s already talk that the cornerstone of the GOP proposal — a dramatically reduced 20% corporate tax rate that Trump has called a “red line” — may slip to 22% or 23%, those familiar with negotiations said. Trump had originally promised a 15% rate for corporations. But Republicans are running into resistance from lawmakers and lobbyists who want to preserve...

    It’s being reported that the security guard made famous in the Las Vegas shooter story is not even registered as a guard with the State of Nevada.  Is he even a guard?  Why was he there? Every security guard in the state of Nevada has to register as an armed or unarmed guard with the state’s Private Investigator’s Licensing Board (PILB).  This entity’s records are publicly searchable at: There’s no Jesus Campos licensed with the PILB. Earlier this week we found out that Campos was shot before the shooter started firing on the crowd below at the music...

    Anthony Bourdain blasted Hillary Clinton as “shameful” and “disingenuous” over her comments on CNN about Harvey Weinstein. SNIP “And I have to say, Hillary’s interview with Fareed Zakaria was shameful in its deflection and its disingenuousness,” the celebrity chef said. “Know what Hillary Clinton is NOT? She’s not stupid. Or unsophisticated about the world. The Weinstein stories had been out there for years.” SNIP

    Breitbart ^ | 10/12/17 | Aaron Klein
    H.R. McMaster, President Trump’s embattled national security adviser, labeled the September 11, 2001, Islamic terrorist attacks “mass murder attacks,” instead of calling them acts of terrorism. McMaster made the comments during a Tuesday event at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) marking the 70th anniversary of the National Security Council (NSC). He was addressing the expansion of the NSC from about fifty members in the 1960s, when it was run by Henry Kissinger, another CSIS speaker, to its current size of more than 360 employees. “What has contributed to the growth over time, as well, from 50 or...

    Things that have become clearer from the Weinstein affair: (1) in their ideal world, Hollywood is a model of what the left would like this country to be; a world in which the rich, elites have control over and manipulate every aspect of our lives. (2) socialism/communism is a natural consequence of their belief in (1); one only needs to look at the Venezuelan model to see what happens if they succeed and to a certain degree, folks like Weinstein have successfully implemented the Venezuelan model within the Hollywood sphere. (3) it is possible that the many leftists in Hollywood...

    I’ll never forget the one time I laid eyes on Harvey Weinstein outside the pages of Vanity Fair. It was at a movie premiere in Manhattan in 2014. My sister and I got up before the film started for a pre-emptive bathroom run. As we left the theater, we couldn’t avoid walking past Mr. Weinstein, who was pressed up close to a younger, much smaller man in the hallway. Mr. Weinstein was inches from the younger man, pointing fingers at his face, swearing at him and threatening him. The man being berated was flush against the wall. He stood there,...

    It’s a nightmare scenario for a 21-year-old mother – a court has granted joint custody to a man accused of raping her when she was 12. The rape allegedly occurred in September 2008, according to a press release by the woman’s attorney, Rebecca Kiessling. Christopher Mirasolo was charged with raping the woman when he was 18 and she was 12, which is a first-degree felony in Michigan. “The sentence ‘for a violation that is committed by an individual 17 years of age or older against an individual less than 13 years of age’ should have been a mandatory ‘imprisonment for...

    A hole the size of Maine—or larger than the Netherlands, depending on which geographic mass means more to you—has opened up in the Weddell Sea in Antarctica. In an otherwise thick layer of sea ice, still frozen from the Antarctic winter, the hole is an aberration. Ice scientists aren’t sure what’s going on, but they’re all talking about it. “It looks like you just punched a hole in the ice,” atmospheric physicist Kent Moore, of the University of Toronto, told Vice’s Motherboard. Autonomous float deployed in 2015 has resurfaced unexpectedly inside polynya & started transmitting data @NSF —...

    The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is ramping up investigation into former President Barack Obama administration’s campaign to “unmask” President Donald Trump aides who were incidentally surveilled in meetings with foreign officials, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. The committee is also intensifying a probe into Fusion GPS, a private “opposition research” company that distributed a salacious memo on Trump, called the “Trump Dossier.” Over the next two weeks the House committee is expected to privately interview former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, who reportedly asked to unmask or identify Americans on as many as 260 occasions,...
  • Earthquake Detected Near North Korea Nuclear Test Site, USGS Can't Confirm If "Natural Or Man-Made"

    This event occurred in the area of the previous North Korean Nuclear tests. The event has earthquake like characteristics, however, we cannot conclusively confirm at this time the nature (natural or human-made) of the event. The depth is poorly constrained and has been held to 5 km by the seismologist. The Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC) is the sole organization in the U.S. federal government whose mission is to detect and report technical data from foreign nuclear explosions.

    The tax code has been very, very good to sports team owners. A little-known tweak to IRS rules in 2004 has allowed new owners to write off nearly all of the purchase price of their teams against profits over 15 years. ---SNIP--“Without a doubt, this is the tax break they benefit the most from,” tax expert Robert Willens told The Post. Just how much? Well, take the case of fracking billionaire Terry Pegula, who in 2014 paid $1.4 billion for the Buffalo Bills. Pegula is able to deduct $93 million a year — one-fifteenth of the purchase price — against...
