    One thing that that has puzzled a lot of people since the selection of Pope Francis two years ago is how a left-leaning Pope could succeed two very serious conservative Popes—John Paul II and Benedict XVI—who you would have thought had stacked the ranks of the Cardinals with clergy that would perpetuate their theological and philosophical outlook. Was Benedict hounded out of office by some kind of internal Vatican scandal perhaps? Was there some ecclesiastical version of a coup?There’s no evidence that I’m aware of—until now. Three days ago the National Catholic Register ran a very curious article about...

    VATICAN CITY Five years ago, Pope Francis was elected to be an agent of change within a church shaken by scandals and the historic resignation of Benedict XVI. He quickly became a global force in geopolitics, setting the agenda on climate change and care for migrants. World leaders wanted to be near him. Even non-Catholics adored him.Today, Francis is increasingly embattled. The political climate has shifted abruptly around the world, empowering populists and nationalists who oppose much of what he stands for. Conservative forces arrayed against him within the Vatican have been emboldened, seeking to thwart him on multiple...

    Rep Paul Gosar has said that he plans to seek charges of treason against four FBI officials for treason in trying to topple a legally elected president. He claims that their actions were not only illegal but constituted an attempted coup of a sitting US president using false dossier information that they knew was really opposition research (lies) paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. He is seeking charges against former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Gosar said:

    ...Mnangagwa struck a conciliatory tone in the months leading up to the election. Declaring that Zimbabwe was open for business, he amended a law requiring local ownership of diamond and platinum mines. He signaled his intent to end farm seizures and vowed to sell off failing state enterprises. He even wrote a New York Times op-ed calling for democracy and equal rights for all citizens. But Mnangagwa is tied to numerous human rights abuses, including overseeing a series of government-ordered massacres between 1982 and 1986 known as the Gukurahundi. An estimated 20,000 civilians from Zimbabwes Ndebele ethnic group were killed....
  • August 2018: The U.S. is wrong about the Muslim Brotherhood and the Arab world is suffering for it

    During the Obama presidency, the U.S. administration was wary of the Muslim Brotherhood, which had come to power in Egypt after the countrys first-ever free elections. Despite his declared support for democracy and change in the Arab world in the wake of the Arab Spring, then-President Barack Obama did not take a strong position and reject the coup against President-elect Mohamed Morsi. The coup, as we know, led to the militarys return to power in the largest Arab country along with tyranny, repression, corruption and mismanagement. That is the conclusion that David D. Kirkpatrick arrives at in his excellent...

    FULL TITLE: Pastor Brunson Immediately Expressed His Gratitude With Display of Patriotism After Being Freed From Turkey After Pastor Andrew Brunson was released from Turkey following two years of detainment, he expressed his gratitude in the most patriotic way even before he touched down on American soil. Before the pastor landed at Joint Base Andrews outside of Washington, D.C., on Saturday, his plane made a stop in Germany on Friday to refuel. While there, he and his wife were greeted by U.S. Ambassador Richard Grenell, who presented Brunson with a folded American flag. The pastor, moved by the gesture,...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., alleged Sunday that there is a bureaucratic coup being uncovered following reporting last week that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed trying to oust President Trump. The New York Times reported Friday that Rosenstein considered rallying Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution and offered to wear a wire to record his conversations with the president. Rosenstein has denied he considered such actions and follow-up reports have indicated that he was being sarcastic when bringing up the secret recording. Graham told Fox News Sunday that Trump should not fire the top Justice Department...

The California Democrats weekly press briefing veered into explosive territory when the subject of illegal immigration came up. Mrs. Pelosi said there may be uprisings over children who are separated at the U.S. southern border when asylum seekers decide not to arrive at a proper checkpoint.

    snip Informed sources in both Moscow and Kiev have told TIME that Tymoshenko has reached a deal with the Kremlin, under which she would be more considerate of Russia's needs particularly for long-term rights to its Black Sea naval base at Sevastopol and would tone down her traditional anti-Moscow diatribes, and in return she may find Russia more flexible when it comes to negotiating next year's prices for the natural gas on which Ukraine depends. However, Tymoshenko firmly denies rumors of any accommodation with foreign powers, insisting that she abides only by the interests of Ukraine. Rumors of...

    Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the military folks to save America from President Donald Trump after Trumps much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy! Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. No coup called for, he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohens bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director John...

    Nearly two years ago, the British people voted for Brexit. They rejected the arguments of the political, business, academic and media establishment, which were united in their support for the European Union and its elitist agenda that favors the rich. Instead, voters chose populism, voting for Britain to become a self-governing, independent nation outside the EU. You can say they were wrong; you can lament their decision. But you cant deny the facts of what happened. But guess what? Denying the facts is exactly what the elitists are trying to do. Right now, the political debate in the United Kingdom...

    On Friday there was more good economic news as the jobs report showed the unemployment rate dropped to 3.9%, the lowest since 2000. For African Americans and Hispanics, the unemployment rate is now the lowest ever recorded. In April, 164,000 nonfarm jobs were added to payrolls surpassing a 135,000 increase in employment in March. Among the sectors to perform well in April were construction which added 17,000 new jobs and manufacturing employment which surged by 24,000 jobs. Most analysts believe that the economy is nearing full employment, so it is not surprising that the Economic Cost Index shows wages are...

He asked for a copy of the unredacted scope memo penned by Rod Rosenstein, which Congressional Republicans have also sought.The judge is particularly concerned that much of the information that forms the basis of the Manafort indictment was compiled by the Justice Department during the Bush and Obama Administrations, when Robert Mueller was the FBI Director.I...

There was no Trump-Russia collusion. End the witch hunt now and start prosecuting all involved in the attempted coup. Not only did the House Intel report clear Trump of any ‘collusion’ with Russia, it revealed a group of wealthy donors spent $50 million to fund the Trump-Russia investigation.

    Top U.S. intelligence officials gathered in the White House Situation Room in March to debate a controversial proposal. Counterterrorism officials wanted to create a government dragnet, sweeping up millions of records about U.S. citizenseven people suspected of no crime. ~ snip ~ The rules now allow the little-known National Counterterrorism Center to examine the government files of U.S. citizens for possible criminal behavior, even if there is no reason to suspect them. That is a departure from past practice, which barred the agency from storing information about ordinary Americans unless a person was a terror suspect or related to an...
