    On the plane returning from his journey to Africa today Pope Francis made his clearest remarks in condemnation of ‘fundamentalist’ Catholics. "Fundamentalism is a sickness that is in all religions," Francis said, as reported by the National Catholic Reporter’s Vatican correspondent, Joshua McElwee, and similarly by other journalists on the plane. "We Catholics have some -- and not some, many -- who believe in the absolute truth and go ahead dirtying the other with calumny, with disinformation, and doing evil." "They do evil," said the pope. "I say this because it is my church." "We have to combat it," he...

    Ilyse Hogue, president of the abortion advocacy group NARAL Pro-Choice America, derided pro-life activists David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress and Troy Newman of Operation Rescue after they condemned the Friday shootings at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood.Hogue implied that the shooting was a consequence of their pro-life work, saying that while they had freedom of speech, they “are not free from the judgment of the consequences of your hate-filled rhetoric.” “Sorry, David Daleiden.

    I'm usually reticent to get into the mud created by shootings like the one Robert L. Dear perpetrated at the Colorado Planned Parenthood. The usual partisan/ideological lines get drawn and wild speculation and flat out lies often drive a narrative that I want little or nothing to do with, as counter-intuitive as that might seem for a blogger, because it ends up being a distraction than a substantive discussion. The problem with that type of inaction is liberals live for moments like this (remember when Democratic analyst Mark Penn sort of fantasized in about how Obama needed an Oklahoma City bombing...

    The media is reporting today that Ted Cruz has called the Planned Parenthood shooter a ‘transgender leftist’, but that’s not what he said at all. He was simply pointing to the fact that we don’t have enough information about the shooter to make a decision, and referenced our report that the shooter had been registered as a female on his voting record after the news reporter said it was reported that the shooter said ‘no more baby parts’. He wasn’t calling the shooter a transgender leftist, just saying there are reports suggesting it.Watch:Ted Cruz's Remark (Video)

Here's RawStory with a typical characterization: In a frantic effort to pin blame on the Planned Parenthood terror attack on Friday on anyone but the anti-choice right, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said that Christian extremist Robert Louis Dear was "registered as an independent and a woman and transgendered leftist activist" at a press conference on Sunday. The Texas Tribune reported on Cruz' attempt to distance his party and presidential campaign from the attack at a campaign stop in Newton, Iowa. Sounds pretty bad. But did he...

    I've noticed the same comments on social media that I suspect many other have about the capture of the man responsible for the shooting from (not of) the Planned Parenthood location in Colorado Springs. Three people were killed and nine wounded in the attack, including one police officer who was killed and four more injured attempting to save citizens who were taking fire. Very opinionated but very ignorant people have claimed that the shooter was taken alive because he was white, and also claim that if he was a minority, that police would have gunned him down.

    Its been just a few days since a shooter killed three people and wounded nine others at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, and Republicans have already resumed their baseless accusations against the group. Carly Fiorina has determinedly promulgated the claim, first advanced by the Center for Medical Progress in its deceptively edited videos, that Planned Parenthood sells “body parts” from fetuses. Donald Trump, in characteristically garbled fashion, appeared both to acknowledge that some claims about the videos were false and to cite the videos as a potential motive for violence. Meanwhile, in the House, conservatives say they are...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado, November 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- The media made a rush to judgement in blaming the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting on the pro-life movement, according to Sen. Ted Cruz. Shortly after the shooting, Planned Parenthood blamed the violence outside the abortion facility on "smear campaigns." But Cruz rebutted the notion that Americans who support the right to life are responsible for 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear's shooting spree, that ended three lives. "The media promptly wants to blame him on the pro-life movement when at this point there’s very little evidence to indicate that," Cruz told The Texas...

    No one would argue that Friday's shooting near the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood is anything other than a tragedy. Another mass shooting has resulted in the loss of innocent lives. The suspect, Richard Lewis Dear, killed three people and injured 11 others after a standoff with police. An additional tragedy, however, is the liberal media's notion that the pro-life movement is to blame for the carnage. According to The Guardian's Jessica Valenti, this incident demands that "the violent radical language and lies about abortion stop."Believing she now has a justification for her pro-abortion agenda, she launched into a lecture about pro-lifers' role in...

    WASHINGTON — This week, abortion rights activists are going to use tough language and modern political tactics to make the shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Friday into a political moment they say will put abortion opponents on the defensive after a year that has seen them score a number of political victories against legal and accessible abortion. That means abortion rights supporters using the word “terrorism” to describe what happened in Colorado Springs. That means confronting pro-life Republicans and asking them about what activists call “a culture of violence” directed toward abortion providers. And that means trying...

Europeans and Latin Americans sponsoring the resolution could not be swayed, and insisted throughout the weeks leading up to the vote that the resolution on children must contain a specific prescription for “comprehensive evidence-based education on human sexuality,” and no alternative would satisfy them. Delegations implored the sponsors of the resolution to show “sensitivity” and to recognize the lack of consensus to no avail as they...

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel's 2-1 decision doesn't put the question to rest. Nearly a dozen states have imposed similar requirements on abortion providers, and the U.S. Supreme Court agreed last week to hear a challenge to Texas' law in a case that could settle the issue nationally. The Wisconsin case centers on a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood and Affiliated Medical Services. The groups argue that the 2013 law amounts to an unconstitutional...

Edwards has said for months that he would accept the expansion of Medicaid, which requires executive approval, in the early days of his administration. But he said new questions have been raised about a funding mechanism the Legislature finished building in the spring. There is "a difference of opinion" in interpretations of how the bill was drafted and passed, Edwards said. But he did not appear...

One might expect that their satisfaction with healthcare costs would drop after the Affordable Care Act (ACA) brought more previously uninsured people into the system and made changes to coverage. However, satisfaction with healthcare costs has remained relatively stable. The current 57% who are satisfied is lower than the 62% measured in November 2009 -- the year before the ACA was signed into law.

But where Reagan was very active throughout his life, Hillary is a different story.    Hillary never participated in athletics when she was younger, something about being too ugly to participate. And now, as she approaches the BIG SEVEN-ZERO she is very out of shape. It is a safe...

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Health Republic of New York made a big splash when it debuted in 2014 with rock-bottom health insurance prices that undercut its competitors across the state. Its premium rates were 30 percent below average in Onondaga County. The new company, backed with $265 million in federal loans, quickly captured the biggest share of new business on the state's health insurance exchange created by the federal Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Now Health Republic is going broke because of those low prices, forcing its 200,000 members – including 4,060 in Central New York – to get...

    Before my fellow conservatives jump immediately to defend Candidate Carson, I would ask that they read the following short column. Some years ago, I became aware of the extraordinary and remarkable career of Dr. Benjamin Carson via the 2009 movie "Gifted Hands" ,a film in which Cuba Gooding, Jr. portrayed the doctor. I even talked about him to my friend and colleague Laurie Roth who, subsequently, interviewed him on her Radio show. Dr. Carson seemed to be an honorable man, conservative and true to his word. However, since he officially began his campaign for the position of POTUS, something appears...

    Days after Sen. Ted Cruz criticized his partys leadership for preemptively surrendering to President Barack Obama, those GOP leaders exacted their revenge on Cruz. As the Senate voted Monday on a continuing resolution with taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, Cruz attempted to offer an amendment ending all federal funding for Americas largest abortion provider. The amendment also cut off money to implement the Iran nuclear deal. But in a departure from Senate custom, a quartet of Republican leaders blocked the Texas senator from even getting a vote on his amendment. Only one senator, Mike Lee of Utah, stood with Cruz...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is standing by his past support for universal health care. I want people taken care of in the country, okay? You can call it anything you want, but I want including people that dont have anything, The Donald told radio host John Fredericks in an interview Wednesday. We gotta do that. Trump said in 1999 when he was flirting with a presidential rub on the Reform Party ticket that the U.S. should make health care an entitlement and that coverage should be universal. I would put forward a comprehensive health care program...

    Good360, which provides charities with goods from businesses, donated $18,022 in goods to an affiliate of the National Network of Abortion Funds, which calls abortion a fundamental human right. In 2013, a charity whose board is chaired by Carly Fiorina donated $18,022 of goods to an organization that provides financial assistance to women seeking abortions. Fiorina, the Republican presidential candidate, has served as the chair of Good360 since 2012. The organization facilitates donations from companies to nonprofits by allowing the companies to donate products, and the nonprofits to select the products they need on an online marketplace. Good360 then delivers...

    [VIDEO AND AUDIO OF MARK LEVIN'S SHOW] On his radio show yesterday evening, Mark “The Great One” Levin blasted Donald Trump and Marco Rubio for smearing their rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, Ben Carson and Ted Cruz. As PJ Media reported earlier, Trump recently went off on Carson during a campaign event in Iowa. The billionaire businessman smeared Carson, comparing him to child molesters and declaring he’s unfit to be president because he had violent impulses as a teenager. He even went so far as to blast Carson’s religiosity, basically saying it’s all a lie to swoon Iowa voters:...

    Mayor de Blasio is moving to clean up a state medical-insurance mess that blindsided thousands of New Yorkers, including 114 cancer patients in the city who were about to lose their doctors. Under a hastily drawn-up deal, the patients will continue to get coverage for treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center under the city's MetroPlus health plan. The patients had faced a tough choice: pay out of pocket or find new doctors because of the impending bankruptcy of Health Republic - one of the state's ObamaCare providers and the only one that covers treatment at Sloan Kettering.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: They're already after the Kentucky governor. Before the guy is even sworn in, predictably, this is a prediction that I made -- gee, I don't know, years ago. I'll just tell you this, you'll see what I mean. This is from the Washington Post: "Kentucky’s Newly Insured Worry About Their Health Under Next Governor." (laughing) We just had a Republican governor, a Tea Party guy, a staunch conservative win in a landslide in Kentucky, in part running against Obamacare, and here comes the Drive-By Media saying that the people in Kentucky are now getting scared and they're...
