    Leftist anti-American, terrorist-supporting groups have announced they will hold a "non-violent direct action" protest at the White House on Monday, October 5th calling for the complete withdrawal of American forces from the Afghanistan and Pakistan theaters in the war on terror, thereby giving victory to al Qaeda and the Taliban.One of the groups leaders is Code Pink's Jodie Evans, an early and top financier of Barack Obama's presidential campaign.

    NEW YORK, NY, June 19, 2009 (C-FAM) - A year-and-a-half after the "Global 'Safe Abortion'" conference took place in London, abortion advocates Marie Stopes International and Ipas just released the conference report detailing the abortion movement’s worldwide strategy. While organizers claimed that the primary objective of the conference was to "save women's lives and reduce maternal mortality," the report reveals that participants prioritized a so-called "right" to "safe and legal abortion" above all else – dismissing any evidence of its harmful effects on women and even denying the right of conscientious medical professionals to object to participating in abortions. The...

    On Feb. 18th of 2009, Mr. Robinson posted a thread entitled, Call to action:Possible Action Items for FReeper Conventions. Please consider this both a call for other state chapters to organize, and for the Ohio board to begin organizing local meetings geared towards an eventual freeper grassroots action convention. Now, it is only a personal suggestion that we start at a local level, if you believe that your board already has sufficient cohesion to begin organizing at a state or regional level, then go for it.As conservatives of different stripes, its our right to act as individuals, however, its this...

    Insight Scoop ^ | May 31, 2008 | Carl Olson
    From a Chicago Tribune piece (May 31, 2008) titled, "Catholic activists mark the end of an era": In the late 1970s, with memories of Vietnam still raw and the Cold War raging, hundreds of activists rallied in peace and justice movements, pressing the government for change. Here in Chicago, a former priest and a former nun saw a chance for similar activism within the Roman Catholic Church. In 1976, Dan and Sheila Daley launched Call To Action, a group of Catholics seeking to act out God's vision in society and hold leaders accountable. Hmmm..."similar activism"—that is, not just questioning authority,...

    Last week, the West Coast Call to Action had its conference in San Jose. This blogs links to a video of the Closing Liturgy. Here’s a direct link to the video.Playing “spot the liturgical abuse” is not the point. Nor is snarking at the average age of the participants. (Just heading off the predictable commentary at the pass here. Let’s go deeper.)What I am just not grasping, despite my pretty strong powers of empathy, is the gestalt at work here.Why does everyone think the giant liturgical puppets are so awesome?This has got to be one of the oddest things...

    ASSEMBLY REPUBLICANS COLLAPSING ON BUDGET TONIGHT! THE VOTE IS SCHEDULED FOR 8:15 PM TONIGHT. PLEASE CONTACT ASSEMBLY AND SENATE REPUBLICAN OFFICES AND DEMAND THAT THEY HOLD FIRM FOR A BALANCED BUDGET. The Assembly is convening tonight to adopt another seriously out-of-balance state budget (SB 77). Worse, it sets in motion obligations that will cause a catastrophic shortfall for the following year. And worst of all, it plans on continuing the process of “escheat,” in which the state controller loots safe deposit boxes, retirement and college funds – any assets that are idle for just three years – to deposit in...

    Brace yourself, Bishop B. You've been "targeted" by the power hitters at National Call To Action, who intend to bombard you with fragrant and well-spelled letters indicting you for failure to comply with the alternative sexualities audit conducted by the Office of Child & Youth Protection. And not only that, but the CTA folks are ratting you out to Bishop William Skylstad, whose own diocese -- so punctilious are its pastors -- has complied itself into receivership. The NCR reports: Nicole Sotelo, codirector of national Call to Action, said her organization intends to mount a letter-writing campaign to Lincoln, Neb.,...

    Catholic World News ^ | Dec. 7, 2006
    Dec. 7, 2006 (CWNews.com) - The Vatican has confirmed an American bishop's decision to excommunicate members of the dissident group Call to Action. Call to Action is "causing damage to the Church of Christ," wrote Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re (bio - news), the prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, in a letter to Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Nebraska. In March 1996, Bishop Bruskewitz had announced the excommunication of all Catholics in his diocese who were members of Call to Action or several other dissident groups which he described as "totally incompatible with the Catholic faith." The Nebraska chapter of...

    About 50 people demonstrated outside St. Mary’s Catholic Church and School Saturday afternoon, calling for greater openness and inclusiveness in the Roman Catholic Church. The event concluded the 10th anniversary conference of Call to Action Nebraska, part of a nationwide organization seeking reforms in the church. In 1996, Lincoln Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz announced that local Catholics who joined Call to Action would be excommunicated.  Lincoln is the only diocese in the country to impose such sanctions, said Rachel Pokora, president of Nebraska CTA. About half of those participating in Saturday’s “non-violent action” were CTA members from other parts of the...

    In which of the following countries are certain types of political free speech a crime? A) China B) The United States The answer may shock you -- because if you answered both "A" and "B," you're very close to being correct!(And you could be 100% correct in a matter of days!) Here's what happened: In 2002, the Senate and House passed what is known as "McCain-Feingold"  -- a constitutionally questionable law that severely restricts the ability of ACU (and other not-for-profit organizations) to give YOU non-partisan information on candidates for federal public office prior to an election. McCain-Feingold essentially...

    Tax Reform Panel's Idea of Tax Reform? Raise Taxes President Bush's Panel on Tax Reform has leaked what appears to be a peak at what it will recommend in overhauling and reforming the Federal Income Tax Code. Their recommendation so far? It's to raise taxes under the guise of eliminating the Alternative Minimum Tax. Without a detailed history lesson, the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) law was passed in the late 1960's because 155 Americans who earned 200,000 dollars or more used legal loopholes to almost eliminate their entire income tax liabilities. Congress closed the loopholes with the AMT yet never...
