  • [Cath Cauc] Former Honduran Ambassador’s Wife Speaks of Cardinal’s Alleged Role in Mismanaged Fund

    The widow of a former dean of the Vatican diplomatic corps has called on Pope Francis to intervene after she lost her life savings with a fund manager recommended to her by one of the Pope’s chief advisers. Martha Alegria Reichmann, the widow of Alejandro Valladares who was Honduran ambassador to the Holy See for 22 years, alleges she and her husband were advised in 2012 by Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, the archbishop of Tegucigalpa, to make the investment with London-based investor Youssry Henien.  But Henien then disappeared with all their life savings.
  • Phoenix Mayor Gives La Raza Ally $2.4 Mil Before Leaving to Run for Congress

    Before resigning to run for Congress, the mayor of America’s fifth-largest city gave a political open-borders ally millions of taxpayer dollars to complete a job in an area it suspiciously has zero experience in. Under the shady deal, the radical La Raza group Promise Arizona (PAZ) will receive $2.4 million from the city of Phoenix to conduct “Business Assistance” during construction of a light rail extension. Some Phoenix City Hall insiders believe it’s a payoff by the outgoing mayor, Greg Stanton, to support his upcoming congressional run. Stanton, who will resign on May 29 , and PAZ Director Petra Falcon...

    President Trump is correct. If an FBI -- or any “Deep State” -- informant was embedded within his campaign for the express purpose of spying on it, that would be a scandal “Bigger than Watergate.” Bigger and much more chilling. Over the course of the last two years, I have communicated with current and former government employees who told me that a number of operatives at various three-letter agencies have been actively working to undermine first the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, and then his presidency. Most of them are Obama appointees. All of them doing so for political...

    Thanks to Obama’s Dirty Works Department people no longer trust the FBI and other intelligence agencies Sneaky, self-appointed ‘Resistance Leader’ Barack Hussein Obama must have been choking on his shaved ice or whatever else he was slurping around noon today when radio giant Rush Limbaugh dug up and re-broadcast his words about Donald Trump “whining” about being spied on. What Obama had to say about Trump’s spying complaints, just three weeks before he was elected president, is particularly significant as Obama’s words on October 18, 2016 were the first— last and only words to date—on the Spying on Donald Trump...

    When Jorge Mario Bergoglio set it up. six months after his election as pope, it seemed like the beginning of a revolution: a council made up of eight cardinals from five continents, with the task of helping the pope in the reform of the curia and above all in the “governance of the universal Church.”And instead, after five years and twenty-four summits with Francis, the curia is more derelict than ever, the universal Church is in a state of confusion, and this council of cardinals is in pieces. An unflinching photograph of the current pontificate, which deserves an enlargement.*Meanwhile the...

    Venezuelans, reeling under a devastating economic crisis, began voting Sunday in an election boycotted by the opposition and condemned by much of the international community but expected to hand deeply unpopular President Nicolas Maduro a new mandate. Maduro, the political heir to the late leftist firebrand Hugo Chavez, has presided over an implosion of once wealthy oil producer Venezuela's economy since taking office in 2013. Hyperinflation, food and medicine shortages, rising crime and broken water, power and transportation networks have sparked violent unrest, and left Maduro with a 75-percent disapproval rating.

    I used to be a doubter who would cringe, just a little, at any mention of “the deep state.” I admit it, it all seemed a little far-fetched to me that there was this cabal of careerists conspiring from within the government to harm President Donald Trump when I first heard it. I never doubted there were individuals doing it, but a wide net of conspirators seemed like something out of a bad movie more than anything that could actually happen in the United States. I was wrong, very wrong, the deep state is real. But there is much more...

    One of the incredible stories du jour is the latest phase of the Hawaiian volcano. I have seen that volcano many times. It’s truly amazing. The desolation it can cause is incomprehensible. There are places where you can see immense vistas that have been devastated... The volcanic activity has recently increased...It’s awesome and unsettling. Code red. That’s the official designation for what’s happening. Code Red. It’s about to blow. But I’m speaking of the leftist cabal, not Kilauea. The Democratic/media complex is about to get worse than it has before. Soon. That’s hard to believe, but just watch. Yes, they...

    A former executive of a North Texas hospice on Thursday admitted her role in an alleged $60 million scheme that included overdosing patients to "hasten their deaths," according to a court document. Melanie Murphey, operations director for Novus Health Services in Frisco, pleaded guilty to federal health-care fraud charges. She faces up to ten years in prison. She is expected to testify against 15 others involved in the alleged conspiracy, including Novus’ owner Bradley Harris and his wife Amy. In court documents detailing her crime, Murphey said she was the "go-between" between Bradley Harris and five nurses and five doctors...

    Time to Stop Comparing CIA/FBI Coup Attempt to Watergate Nothing Like This Has Happened Before. It is minimizing to call it "Like Watergate" and that is what the MSM and the Deep State want to do. Call it the CIA/FBI Coup Attempt. That is what it is. Name the truth, that the Deep State with their Dogs in the Weaponized CIA/FBI and don't forget the IRS, have been working to undermine this country and its people. These are treasonous, seditious acts. They deserve to be judged with the full force of our Constitutional law and severe punishment needs to be...

    Activists filed a federal lawsuit Monday to block construction of the Obama Presidential Center on Chicago’s historic public parklands. Protect Our Parks Inc. accused organizers of an “institutional bait and switch” by initially advertising the center as the 44th president’s official library. “In August 2016, the City and the Park District publically announced that the Obama Presidential Library, promised to include all of the former President’s official records, would be built in Jackson Park,” the lawsuit reads. “Then, in May 2017, after the Defendants’ public announcement that a true ‘Presidential Library’ would be built, the Obamas did an about face...
