    "I believe that anyone who has a job and works full time, they should be able to pay the things that sustain life: food, shelter and clothing. I can't even do that."That rather depressing quote is from 61-year old Rebecca Cornick. She’s a grandmother and a 9-year Wendy’s veteran who spoke to CBS News. Rebecca makes $9 an hour and her plight is representative of fast food workers across the country who are campaigning for higher pay. The fast food worker pay debate is part of a larger discussion as "states and cities across the country [wrestle] with the idea of...

    They say what goes around comes around. In this case, ignore the basic laws of economics and human nature, and you’ll soon find yourself living in a van down by the river. That looks to be in the very near future for one liberal CEO who insisted on making a political statement about the minimum wage, rather than looking after the best interests of his employees and company. We predicted this would happen. But then again, conservatives tend to understand basic economics better than your typical liberal nutcase.

    Obama's Redistribution of Wealth was questioned 5-year-old political commentator, Melody. She uses the example of working to earn her allowance and to save up enough money to buy some ice cream. The before she gets to eat it, Obama forces her to give it to someone else. She opines that it's her choice who to give ice cream to, if anyone at all. Melody also questioned why Obama would reward Iran by giving them over $100 billion in assets back, enough to build hundreds of nuclear bombs.

    The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) recently called attention to an IRS ruling that would penalize small businesses up to $500,000 for daring to compensate their employees for health insurance premiums. The NFIB reports, “On July 1, 2015, employers will be penalized $100 per day per employee if they try to make health insurance more affordable by reimbursing their employees for individual market health insurance premiums. The penalty affects businesses that provide reimbursement for more than one employee. The healthcare reimbursement prohibition regulation decreases an employer’s ability to assist employees with health insurance costs.” The ruling would fine the...

    Anti-market and pro-socialist rhetoric is surging in headlines (see also here, here, and here) and popping up more and more on social media feeds. Much of the time, these opponents of markets can’t tell the difference between state-sponsored organizations like the International Monetary Fund and actual markets. But, that doesn’t matter because the articles and memes are often populist and vaguely worded — intentionally framed in such a way to easily deflect uninformed attacks and honest descriptions of what they are actually saying. In the end, they can all be boiled down to one message: socialism works and is better...

    The new American morning shadowed with trepidation; what new crisis will emerge wholly created by this administration that pits one group of Americans against each other? New morals, values, laws and rights are established at the benefit of a few to the detriment of the majority. All the while this is happening we meaninglessly drift away from the norms established in the past as our own history fades away from popular discourse.

    The presence of Marxism in liberation theology is well-known, at least to seminarians who are critical readers. Practically every seminarian reads Gustavo Gutierrez’s Theology of Liberation at some point, but most laypeople find it hard to believe that there could have been (and continues to be) a widespread attempt to hybridize Christian theology and Marxism. A new article by Robert D. Chapman in the International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence begins to connect some dots. In “The Church in Revolution,” Chapman, “a retired operations officer in the Clandestine Services Division of the Central Intelligence Agency,” argues that the KGB infiltrated...

    Liberation theology, of which not much has been heard for two decades, is back in the news. But what is not being mentioned is its origins. It was not invented by Latin American Catholics. It was developed by the KGB. The man who is now the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, secretly worked for the KGB under the code name “Mikhailov” and spent four decades promoting liberation theology, which we at the top of the Eastern European intelligence community nicknamed Christianized Marxism. Liberation theology has been generally understood to be a marriage of Marxism and Christianity. What...

    On arrival in La Paz, Pope Francis was presented by Bolivian President Evo Morales with a wooden crucifix carved in the form of a hammer and sickle, the symbol of Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Fidel. Had Pope John Paul II been handed that crucifix, he might have cracked it over Evo’s head. For John Paul II had seen up close what communism did — to his country, his church and his people in 45 years of Bolshevik rule. On his arrival in the Nicaragua of Daniel Ortega in 1983, Pope John Paul castigated a priest-collaborator who dared to serve that...

He compares them to the “dung of the devil.” He does not simply argue that systemic “greed for money” is a bad thing. He calls it a “subtle dictatorship” that “condemns and enslaves men and women.” Having returned to his native Latin America, Francis has renewed his left-leaning critiques on the inequalities of capitalism, describing it as an underlying cause of global injustice, and a prime cause of climate change. Francis escalated that line last week when he made a...

At such meetings, the leaders customarily exchange gifts; Pope Francis gave the Bolivian president a mosaic of the Marian icon of the “Salus Populus Romani,” her role as...

    Hi folks, Owing to the recent removal of Confederate flags on Amazon, I decided to call them on it. I created a petition on change.org to call for them to remove all material related to Che Guevara, the Cuban Communist activist/terrorist. I personally don't care for the Confederate flag, but as a conservative, I don't think it's my place to decide what people fly in their yards, or wherever they want. That's not the American way. So if we are going to ban the Confederate flag, we should ban works that are far more destructive, like T-shirts and posters glorifying...

    Bernie Sanders has turned Hillary Clinton’s parade to the White House into a competitive race for the Democratic nomination, as unions prefer Clintons’ socialist opponent. LaborUnionReport.com organized an informal poll in mid-June 2015 and the results showed that union support for Hillary Clinton was lacking significantly. Seventy-six percent of union members favor Bernie Sanders for president in 2016. Only 11 percent of union members favored Hillary Clinton. The report said, “due to her time spent with the employer-friendly Rose law firm (which helps employers fight unions), as well as her stint on the board of directors for Wal-Mart, many union...

    Russia to review 1991 decision to recognise independence of Baltic states Estonia, Latvia and Lithunia were occupied by the Soviet Union for decades Russia is examining the legality of the decision to recognise the independence of the Baltic republics in 1991 by the State Council of the USSR - according to Russia's state news service Interfax. The decision to review recognition of the independence of EU-member Baltic nations follows the Russian Prosecutor General's Office ruling last year that Crimea was illegally handed to Ukraine in 1954; and is certain to alarm the small Baltic NATO-member nations of Lithuania, Latvia and...

    The growing crescendo of outrage over confederate flags, a flawed American legacy and maligned monuments isn’t about hate or even racism for their embodiments exist in all facets of our society. No, this entire orchestrated cultural purge isn’t about addressing justice or protecting our fragile future from enduring embers of animosity. Otherwise, everyone would simply be held to the same standard of accountability and the results would speak for themselves: end of syndicated story. This casting call for immediate retribution is, however, unequivocally about shoving and reshaping America into a progressive mold of mass conformity: a soulless, dependent, unarmed, uninformed,...

    A Catholic church in the central Cuban city of Cienfuegos has banned female relatives of political prisoners from attending mass unless they no longer wear white, a color associated with political imprisonment in the nation. The slight to families of the abused follows the bewildering remark from Archbishop of Havana Jaime Ortega that Cuba no longer has prisoners of conscience.

    Críona Ní Dhálaigh, Sinn Féin councilor and “Dub, born and bred,” has been elected as the new Lord Mayor of Dublin. Ní Dhálaigh replaces Christy Burke after an agreement was made that a Sinn Féin councilor would take over the position during the centenary of the 1916 Rising. Fianna Fáil councilor Jim O’Callaghan and independent councilor Mannix Flynn put their names forward to try to prevent this from happening. Ní Dhálaigh got 41 out of 59 votes on Monday evening and nine went to O’Callaghan and eight went to Flynn. […] O’Callaghan, who objected to the election of a Sinn...

    President Obama will announce Wednesday that the U.S. and Cuba have reached an agreement to open embassies in Havana and Washington, an administration official confirmed to Fox News. The announcement marks a major step in ending hostilities between the longtime foes and an opportunity to re-establish formal diplomatic relations. The U.S. and Cuba have been negotiating the reestablishment of embassies in each other’s capitals following the Dec. 17 announcement that they would move to restore ties. …

    Rally in downtown Athens has live music, speeches - and "solidarity from the people of Carlisle"...Just like an outdoor summer festival, there were huge crowds, live bands, and the occasional whiff of marijuana...Instead, with the music, food stalls and smattering of ageing hippies, the only thing that made it different from last weekend's Glastonbury festival was that the weather was better... However, as with Glastonbury, not everyone paid close attention to the headline acts. Some focused on the side-shows, such as stalls set up by Greece's myriad other radical groups, who think even Syriza represents a sell-out. The Greek Socialist...

    Opponents or Enemies? In any conflict, it is a deadly error to mistake or underestimate the adversary's capabilities, will to employ them, or ultimate goals. Around the globe, what was once confidently deemed “Western civilisation” is in an end-stage battle with champions of a collectivist and statist ideology which, over the last century, has enacted programs of redistributive taxation, borrowing, and spending whose unsustainability has now become self-evident and which, unless the present course is altered, will collapse in at most ten years. Further, the second- and higher-order effects of these policies have led to demographic collapse in the societies...
