    The Boston Catholic Pilot ^ | May 2, 2016 | Kurt Jensen
    Former Attorney General Eric Holder added his voice to the call for slavery reparations during a program at Jesuit-run Georgetown University. Such reparations can take a variety of forms and may not necessarily mean cash payments to descendants of slaves, Holder said in a response to a question from a student during an April 29 program on race and justice. Reparations, he said, "can mean a whole bunch of different things. You can come up with policies that take into account what slavery meant then, what it means now. Affirmative action can be thought of as reparations, you know? And...

Outside of a Trump rally Tuesday night in Albuquerque New Mexico, anti-Trump protesters showed up and became violent, throwing rocks, smashing doors, jumping on cop cars and setting Trump flags on fire. For a couple of hours, police tried to control the protesters and find a way to let the hundreds of people who attended the rally, trapped inside, out safely. An NBC reporter was even knocked down off camera as he reported on the scene. Yet his colleagues at sister network MSNBC were less than shocked by the...

John Bachtell, national chair of the CPUSA expressed his "pleasure with the progressive evolution of the Democratic Party. The Communist agenda has been totally absorbed by this mainstream Party.

Mr Obama immediately invited her to show off her talent, asking "do you need a few beats?"

    Handguns are almost always inferior to riÔ¨āes in terms of accuracy and stopping power. Since defensive Ô¨Āghting usually happens up close, those qualities are important, but casual carrying of long guns is not socially acceptable in much of the world. The solution is to use the most powerful handgun that¬ís still practical for unsupported Ô¨Āring.

    Hijra, or jihad by emigration, is a fundamental tenet of Islam hearkening back to the earliest days of Mohammedís war to establish hegemony over the cities of southwest Arabia. The most notable Hijra was the flight of Mohammed from Mecca to the largely Jewish city of Yathrib, now the completely Muslim city of Medina. While the story of how Yathrib came to be Medina is too long to recount here, suffice it to say that by fleeing the city of Mecca, where they appeared to be in danger of being eliminated, and appearing at Yathrib as refugees, Mohammed and his...

This creation was offered only as a small test in Bakersfield, California. It later made its way to restaurants in Kansas City in mid-April. And itís not over yet. Taco Bell told BuzzFeed News that the product ó renamed the ďNaked Chicken ChalupaĒ following the successful...

    A leaked memo revealed how the stateís largest teachers union planned to get around Michiganís new right-to-work law soon after it was enacted. The law repeals the power previously enjoyed by the union to get a school employee fired for not paying it dues or fees. In the memo from December 2012, Michigan Education Association President Steve Cook laid out the unionís strategy: ďWe will use any legal means at our disposal to collect the dues owed under signed membership forms from any members who withhold dues prior to terminating their membership in August for the following fiscal year.

    New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker is seeking a redefinition of "violent crimes." As a co-sponsor of the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2015 (SRCA), Booker is urging "a candid conversation about how we determine whether crimes are violent or not." "For too long a racist mindset has dominated how we look at crime," Booker charged. "In white society stabbing or shooting someone is considered abnormal and violent. This unfairly stigmatizes Black culture. Sentencing a minority offender based on white standards disproportionately impacts a vibrant segment of society." Booker urged that "we recognize the longer term history of racial...

Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood Ė both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno Ė husband Bill described her selection as ďmy worst mistake.Ē Some may not...
