  • Francis in his own words: There was no 'multiplication' of loaves: it was just 'sharing'.

    Francis in his own words: There was no 'multiplication' of loaves: it was just 'sharing'. In his own words: Surprisingly, the account of the multiplication of the loaves does not mention the multiplication itself. On the contrary, the words that stand out are: “break”, “give” and “distribute” (cf. Lk 9:16). In effect, the emphasis is not on the multiplication but the act of sharing. This is important. Jesus does not perform a magic trick; he does not change five loaves into five thousand and then to announce: “There! Distribute them!” No. Jesus first prays, then blesses the five loaves...

    Vote against all Republicans. Every single one. By Max Boot Columnist October 31 at 3:31 PM “I am sick and tired of this administration. I’m sick and tired of what’s going on. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired, and I hope you are, too.” — Joe Biden I’m sick and tired, too. I’m sick and tired of a president who pretends that a caravan of impoverished refugees is an “invasion” by “unknown Middle Easterners” and “bad thugs” — and whose followers on Fox News pretend the refugees are bringing leprosy and smallpox to the United States.

  • The Drive For 25: An Updated Seat-By-Seat Analysis Of The House

    We went with the name “Drive for 25” as an homage to a 2012 House Democratic slogan and to reflect the fact that while Democrats need to net 23 seats, they probably are going to lose at least a couple of seats they currently hold to Republicans. (snip)This year, Republicans appear to be guaranteed at least one pickup: PA-14, an open seat in southwestern Pennsylvania that is a more Republican-leaning version of the old PA-18, the seat now-Rep. Conor Lamb (D) won in a special election in March.(snip) Republicans also are targeting two open seats in Minnesota, MN-1 (covering southern...

    President Trump attacked Pennsylvania Rep. Conor Lamb (D) in a pair of tweets Saturday morning that endorsed Lamb's opponent, Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-Pa.), in the battle for the state's newly drawn 17th District. Trump tweeted his support for Rothfus on Saturday as Vice President Pence headed to the state to campaign for Rothfus. He also resurfaced a nickname for Lamb, "Lamb the Sham." The two congressmen are dueling for the newly drawn district, currently held by Rep. Matt Cartwright (D), who himself was redistricted to Pennsylvania's 8th District. ".@VP Pence is heading to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where we have both strongly...
  • Rosie O’Donnell’s Campaign Donations To Dems Went Over Legal Limit

    NY Post ^ | 05/05/18 | Anna Sanders
    Rosie O’Donnell made illegally over-sized campaign donations to at least five Democratic federal candidates, according to a Post analysis of campaign filings. The liberal comedian has regularly broken Federal Election Commission rules limiting the total any one person can give to an individual candidate at $2,700 per election. The limit applies separately to primaries, runoffs and general elections. “Nothing nefarious,” the outspoken star and Donald Trump arch-nemesis wrote in an email to the Post. “I was not choosing to over donate. “If 2700 is the cut off — [candidates] should refund the money,” she wrote. “I don’t look to see...

    Reuters ^ | April 4, 2018 | by James Oliphant, Caren Bohan
    Before last month’s special congressional election in Pennsylvania, U.S. President Donald Trump, who ridiculed his rivals in the 2016 election as “Liddle Marco,” “Lyin’ Ted,” and “Crooked Hillary,” tried it again, tagging Democratic candidate Conor Lamb as “Lamb the Sham.” This time, the tactic failed. But it illustrated a penchant for often brutally effective nicknames that Democrats are bracing for Trump to employ when he campaigns for Republicans in November’s congressional elections. All 435 members of the House and a third of the 100-member Senate will be up for grabs. A Democratic takeover of one or both chambers could derail...

    WASHINGTON — A growing number of Democratic congressional candidates are bailing out on Nancy Pelosi as they try to inoculate themselves against Republican attacks on the House Minority Leader. "I'm not supporting Nancy Pelosi," Democrat Andrew Janz, who is running against Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told NBC News in a recent interview. "I think she's done a lot of good for the party; I think she's done a lot of good for the country," he added. "However, I think it's time for a new generation of leaders to go to Washington, and this is with respect to both Democrats and...

    I'm perplexed why many in Republican circles are rationalizing and dismissing the gravity of the Democratic victory in the recent special election in Pennsylvania's 18th district. My sentiments are more with Newt Gingrich, who is cautioning Republicans to view this as a wake-up call to a possible disaster in the fall elections in which the Congress could flip to Democrat control. Pennsylvania's 18th congressional district is a poster child of Trump voters. As widely noted, Trump won this district by 20 points in 2016. The district's electorate is 94 percent white, compared with 70 percent nationwide. In 2016, Trump won...
  • Fmr Clinton Pollster Mark Penn: Conor Lamb Came Out Against Nancy Pelosi and Won

    Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn weighed in on Pennsylvania’s 16th congressional district special election result, crediting Rep.-elect Conor Lamb’s (D-PA) victory to the candidate going against the far left like Nancy Pelosi. “[A]fter so much talk that the party was moving to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders [the special Pennsylvania congressional election] really reaffirms the power of a centrist Democrat,” Penn told New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis. “I mean, Conor Lamb really took a lot of centrist positions. He backed a lot of what President Trump was saying. And he came out explicitly against...

    What if they held a special election and nobody won? That's more or less what happened in southwestern Pennsylvania, in the special election to fill the vacancy in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District. Democrat Conor Lamb narrowly defeated Republican Rick Saccone -- by 627 votes out of 228,378 counted -- in a district held by Republican Tim Murphy since 2003. More to the point, the district was carried by a 20-point margin by Republican Donald Trump in 2016 and by a 58-41 percent margin by Republican Mitt Romney in 2012. Lamb's margin seems likely to hold up under a possible recount,...

    President Donald Trump praised Conor Lamb, the winner of the Congressional special election in Pennsylvania, for running a smart campaign on his agenda. “He said very nice things about me. I kept saying, is he a Republican? He sounded like a Republican to me,” Trump said. “But I guess when you’re popular in a certain area, that’s probably a good tactic.” Trump made his remarks during a closed-door fundraiser in Missouri on Wednesday evening. Audio of his remarks leaked to several media outlets. “It’s a pretty smart race, actually,” Trump admitted. “But he ran and he ran on that basis....

    Hotair ^ | 03/15/2018 | John Sexton
    The PA-18 race isn’t over yet (there could still be a recount), but even the prospect of a narrow win by Democratic candidate Conor Lamb is being taken as a sign by Democrats looking for a path to victory in 2018. Republicans spent millions on ads tying Lamb to Nancy Pelosi. That attempt to nationalize the race and tie the Dem candidate to the unpopular party leader has worked for Republicans in the past. But this time, Lamb came out of the gate distancing himself from Pelosi, saying he would not support her for Speaker if Democrats took back...

    Serious shenanigans may have gone down in Pennsylvania's special election on Tuesday. From the Washington Free Beacon:Lamb currently leads Republican Rick Saccone by just 627 votes and there are still absentee and provisional ballots that have not been tabulated, but Republicans are already preparing for the likely recount and even a possible lawsuit regarding issues at polling sites, according to a Republican source familiar with the deliberations. "We're actively investigating three instances and likely to file court action on them," the source said. Among the listed concerns are "miscalibrated" voting machines in Allegheny County, the only county of four in...

    President Trump’s proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports horrify Republican leaders in Congress — but they could yet pay political dividends. Trump’s move, cast by the White House as an effort to protect American manufacturing, has significant appeal in the Rust Belt states that were pivotal to his shock 2016 election win. Some Democrats in the region worry that senior figures in their party, especially those whose bases are in affluent coastal cities, are underestimating the political potency of Trump’s announcement. “It worries me as a Democrat that the national Democrats don’t see that Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and...

    Last evening I began watching the PA-18th-CD election returns on the New York Times newspaper election results site...which is by far the best in the business for election reporting and background information. As the initial election returns flowed in, the Times indicated that, though the race was very close, it appeared like Conon Lamb would eke out a victory scoring 52%-48% over Rick Saccone. Then about fifteen minutes later, the Times suddenly changed its prediction to Saccone winning by a 62%-38% over Lamb. The Times said that they had information as to voting patterns in the Conservative counties, indicating a...

    I try to like people, but John Kasich represents a real challenge. The guy really rubs me the wrong way. Somehow, in the midst of all the Tillerson-Pompeo talk, Kasich turned up on MSNBC this morning. Speaking of the special election in Pennsylvania today, Kasich bragged about having been elected to Congress at age 30. That, according to Kasich, makes 33-year old Dem candidate Conor Lamb “a little old.” Kasich made his 2020 strategy pretty clear, saying that the emergence of third parties “is more realistic than it’s ever been.” When host Stephanie Ruhle asked him flat out if he...

    It could come down to a recount. Democrat Conor Lamb has already declared victory over Republican Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania’s special House election, but Republicans say they aren’t giving up until every vote is counted. The contest has still not been called, but Lamb leads Saccone by a few hundred votes. There’s no mandatory recount for a federal race in Pennsylvania, but Republicans have the option of petitioning for one. "This race is too close to call and we’re ready to ensure that every legal vote is counted,” National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman Matt Gorman said late Tuesday. “Once they...

    In the most astonishingly bone-headed move since nominating Mitt Romney for President, the GOP establishment spent major cash to help elect Democrat Conor Lamb in last night’s highly contested PA-18 special election. Yes, you read that right. Failed Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan and his Congressional Leadership Fund pushed a Democrat to victory over a Republican with direct mail advertising touting support “for our Second Amendment Rights.” I’ll repeat that again. A so-called GOP PAC led by Paul Ryan spent thousands of dollars in a direct mail campaign to convince voters that Conor Lamb was a conservative who would protect...

    Remember when President Barack Obama insulted small-town Pennsylvania voters by saying they bitterly “cling to guns or religion”? In next week’s special election, there is a strange new twist to this condescending attitude towards people of faith coming from the Democratic congressional candidate, Conor Lamb. In a recent interview, Lamb oddly invoked his religion to defend his position in support of late-term abortion. He tells us that he never learned the term “pro-life” in Catholic school, and therefore he would vote against any limits on abortion, and would even oppose a recent bill to ban abortion past 20 weeks of...
