    [Catholic Caucus] Knights of the Condom ("Malta") formally forbid Summorum Pontificum The Knights of Malta ended in 2017, with the illegitimate coup promoted by the bishop of Rome. Ever since that time, as we said then, they have simply become the Knights of the Condom. So, it is not surprising that in their new incarnation their wicked and devilish leaders are formally suppressing the Traditional Latin Mass -- it is actually expected.

    Washington (CNN)The Department of Justice informed the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday that President Donald Trump has asserted executive privilege over materials related to the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The move comes ahead of a vote in the committee about whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress over a dispute related to the census and for not complying with subpoenas issued by the committee.

    The attack on Wednesday comes as Japan's prime minister is expected in Iran to mediate between Tehran and Washington amid escalating tensions in the Persian Gulf regions. Coalition spokesman Turki al-Malki says a projectile struck the arrival hall of Abha's airport in the southern part of the kingdom near its border with Yemen on Wednesday. That's according to Saudi Arabia's state-run Al-Ekhabriya news channel. He says three women and two children are among the 26 hurt in the attack. Eight have been hospitalized and the rest sustained minor injuries. The Houthis earlier on Wednesday claimed they'd launched a cruise missile...

    Sir Michael Palin managed to suppress a joke when collecting the 'unbelievable' honour of a knighthood from the Duke of Cambridge for his post-Monty Python career. The writer and broadcaster was dubbed a knight by William for services to travel, culture and geography, making him the first star of the sketch show to receive the honour. The investiture ceremony was also attended by Vernon Unsworth, one of the divers who aided in the perilous rescue of a young football team trapped in a Thai cave.

    Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany joined The Evening Edit on Tuesday night as President Trump campaigned in Iowa. Both President Trump and Joe Biden are campaigning in Iowa today. During the discussion McEnany was confronted with the recent polling data by far left Quinnipiac College that shows President Trump getting drubbed by Democrat challengers. McEnany told Blake Burman that Trump internal polling data shows the President up on any Democrat and that Trump will hold the states they won in 2016. Kayleigh added that the Trump campaign is currently looking to expand to Oregon where polling looks good for Trump.

    Joe Scarborough: not just an MSNBC host anymore. Now a Biden campaign adviser . . . On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski read from Joe Scarborough's Washington Post column of yesterday, in which he counseled Joe Biden to stick to his script. The column, read by Mika, included this line [emphasis added]: "If you think I am trying to send Biden a message with this column, you are correct. Too much is riding on next year’s election for any Democratic candidate to shoot from the hip rhetorically." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Democratic frontrunner tries to own Trump insults by repeating them. Joe Biden tried to own President Trump’s insults against him by repeating them back to a crowd when he remarked, “I think I’m either low IQ or slow — I don’t know”. The result was somewhat embarrassing. “I think I’m either low IQ or slow—I don’t know what I am. Slow Joe Biden? Give me a break,” Biden said. “This is like out of Alice in Wonderland.” Members of the audience appeared bored, with one looking at his phone and another staring at the floor. “The first rule of politics...

    2020 candidate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., has issued a stunning warning to President Trump that seems to echo controversial recent comments from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying her Justice Department would likely charge him with obstruction of justice if she wins the White House. Harris, in a newly released interview, said she believes the only reason former Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not recommend prosecuting Trump was because of the Justice Department’s policy against indicting a sitting president. Once out of office, Trump would be subject to charges -- and Harris was emphatic in saying the DOJ should pursue them....
  • Louisiana Discovers the Always-Growing Costs of Free College

    06/12/2019 7:44:24 AM PDT · by reaganaut1 · 17 replies
    Student loan debt has become a major concern for young people. In response, some Democratic candidates for president are offering “free college” proposals. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders was the first presidential candidate to propose this in 2016. His plan came with a price tag of $47 billion and had the federal government covering two-thirds of the cost. In 2019, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren proposed a more ambitious plan that would forgive student loan debt for everyone with a household income of less than $100,000. Some states, too, have embraced free college: Currently, 21 of them offer some kind of tuition-free...

    In short, it's a horse race in Iowa, and Biden, who makes only his second tour there as a candidate on Tuesday, is no lock to win. His supporters report being far less enthusiastic than those of the other top tier contenders, which is important in caucuses where motivation to show up is essential. For the first months of his campaign, Biden has run as the putative nominee. But with the presumption of leadership comes the expectation of success. Second or third in Iowa would be considered a victory for Warren, Buttigieg or Harris. For Biden, who received just 1%...

    Rush Limbaugh offered a piece of counterintuitive advice to Donald Trump on his radio program Tuesday: "Go to California, Mr. President." "I made a brilliant observation yesterday about the Democrats in California," said Limbaugh (transcript via "Democrats in LA are appalled that homelessness in their city is rising and so much of it, and they’re mad that the Democrat candidates for president are not talking about it. And I told the people of LA (and I’ll do it again today), 'The Democrats are not gonna talk about your problems. They already own you! They don’t need to fix a...
  • Watch Michael Gove compare Prince Charles to HITLER and joke about Princess Diana attempting (trunc)

    A clip from a short-lived Channel 4 late-night comedy show has resurfaced in which Tory leadership contender Michael Gove makes jokes about Princess Diana's suicide attempts and compares Prince Charles to Hitler. The Environment Secretary was, in 1992, briefly co-host of Stab in the Dark, a 'satirical' programme which billed itself as 'opinionated, vitriolic and poisonous'. The then-25-year-old Gove's quips in the show included jokes about penis enlargement, gays in the military, and the royal family. In the very first episode Gove compared Prince Charles’s interventions into the debate around nature and architecture to Adolf Hitler. Then he added: ‘There...

    President Donald Trump claimed executive privilege to block Congress’ access to documents about how a citizenship question was added to the 2020 census. The move came as the House Oversight and Reform Committee was beginning proceedings Wednesday morning to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with the subpoenas.

    A woman stabbed her boyfriend after he told her she had packed too many clothes for their holiday. Lesley Bradbury, 50, descended into a "pathological" rage when she found out Gary Moore had taken some of the items she had packed out of the car for their New Year's Eve getaway. Minshull Street Crown Court heard Bradbury suffered from a mental health condition which causes her to hoard goods and protect them. Police had rushed to the Middleton home in Greater Manchester to find the Moore bleeding from his bicep while Bradbury was heard shouting "he deserved it". Moore refused...

    At the end of the day, all most of us want is someone who’ll pander to us.Doesn’t matter how cynical and expedient the pander is. The cynicism might even be a virtue of sorts, as a politician who’s willing to toss a stance he’s held for 40 years overboard overnight to get elected is a politician who’ll be verrrrrrry wary about crossing his base as president. Joe Biden wouldn’t have humiliated himself by bending the knee on the Hyde Amendment unless he was terrified of pro-choicers’ wrath. That terror won’t fade for a long time.No one really cares whether...

  • After Plagiarism Scandal, Biden Rips Off Avenatti’s Campaign Slogan. Avenatti Responds.

    After Plagiarism Scandal, Biden Rips Off Avenatti’s Campaign Slogan. Avenatti Responds. Fresh off his latest plagiarism scandal, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden ripped off indicted lawyer Michael Avenatti's proposed campaign slogan on Tuesday, which spurred reaction online, including from Avenatti. During a campaign stop in Iowa, Biden said: "I think it's time, you know, [Trump] says, 'let's Make America Great Again,' let's make America America again." People immediately noticed that Biden's remarks were an exact match for the campaign slogan that Avenatti had proposed using for his campaign before he encountered legal problems and decided not to run for office....
  • Outrage: California Stiffed Farmers Over Land Seized For High-Speed Rail Route

    Good Lord. More than three years after the state of California seized land through eminent domain for its high-speed rail boondoggle, the state has yet to pay farmers expenses they owe them. And in some cases, they still owe them for the land as well — even while it remains questionable whether the state will ever get around to using it: Up and down the San Joaquin Valley, farmers have similar stories. The state can take land with a so-called order of possession by the Superior Court while it haggles over the price.But farmers often face out-of-pocket costs for...
  • 'Unsafe': Conservative student group denied recognition

    The absolute intolerance of leftists who reject anyone holding a different political perspective was put on stage on Santa Clara University recently when student leaders refused to allow a conservative organization on campus. The situation developed in a vote rejecting the Young America’s Foundation. That group, which has chapters on campuses across the nation already, is dedicated to assuring that the messages of individual freedom, a strong national defense, free enterprise and traditional values are available to those who want them. It works to provide its message through conferences, seminars, educational materials, internships and speakers. The organization announced recently that...

    Is it time to worry? Why, er, no, says political scientist Brendan Nyhan, who pointed on Twitter today to this piece he wrote in 2014. Hypothetical match-ups this far out from Election Day turn out to have no predictive power. In fact, according to one study, match-ups polled just 300 days out from Election Day — a moment that won’t arrive for another six months — also have virtually no predictive power. You’re free to ignore this buzzworthy Quinnipiac survey along with every other “Trump vs. X” poll between now and January that I mine for cheap content.Except in...
