    Republican Sen. John McCain took a veiled swipe at President Donald Trump's attacks on the media, cautioning that suppressing the press "is how dictators get started." McCain, who has broken with Trump on several issues, made the comments in an exclusive interview with NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd, after being asked about the president's condemnation of several media outlets as "fake news" and "an enemy of the American people." "I hate the press. I hate you especially," McCain joked. "But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It's vital."
  • Pope’s reform could threaten the very heart of the Knights of Malta [Catholic Caucus]

    Pope Francis’ reform of the Knights of Malta could gut the very “heart” of the Order and up-end its 900-year-old constitution. Members of the Order who spoke to LifeSiteNews under condition of anonymity say such drastic fears have been stoked by the Pope’s unprecedented intervention in the Order in the last month. Pope Francis has appointed Archbishop Giovanni Angelo Becciu as his special delegate to the Knights of Malta and entrusted him the task of reforming the lay Order’s religious branch of professed Knights, called the “First Class,” who take vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. Members of the Order...

    No Reasons Given: According to Marco Tosatti, there is still a very strong resistanceamong the Franciscan Friars and Sisters of the Immaculate against the commissioners Pope Francis has imposed on them. Tosatti points out that to this very day the Vatican has not explained the reasons why it cracked down on the order almost four years ago. Pressure: Tosatti writes that Fr Manelli received last week a Vatican decree which writes: "Father Stefano Manelli is required to issue a statement in which he declares to accept and comply with all provisions of the Holy See and to urge the Franciscan...

    Against the evidence there is little to argue. The outstretched hand of Pope Bergoglio to the Society of St. Pius X is the same, which has recently dealt blows to the Order of Malta and the Franciscans of the Immaculate. The story of the Order of Malta ended with the unconditional surrender of the Grand Master and the return of power to Albrecht von Boeselager along with the powerful German group he represents. The story was summarized in these terms by Riccardo Cascioli of La Nuova Bussola quotidiana: “the one responsible for the moral drift of the Order has been...

    I am not an expert on Hitler. But my father is. He toured post-war Germany extensively in 1957 and ’58 as a child performer. And he often recounts the stories. He befriended teenage Lebensborn children (if you don’t know what Lebensborn children are …well …before you post anymore about Hitler you should read about them). He visited an SS widow and got a peek at her husband’s uniform and Luger (that he’d committed suicide with), she had stored in an old trunk, in the attic. These and other intense experiences in Germany sent my father on a life-long quest to...

    The “Sovereign” Military Order of the Knights of Malta, whose almost millennium-long history includes its critical role in the defeat of Islam at the Battle of Lepanto, has submitted like a whimpering puppy to a naked abuse of power it had every right to resist, and did resist for a few weeks. The effective demise of the Order’s sovereignty is a shocking and disheartening demonstration of the extent to which the Church is now being governed from the top in the manner of a banana republic, wherein the only law is the will of the leader. First, as Edward Pentin...

    The details of the naked and unconstitutional (absolutely contrary to the Constitutional Charter of the Sovereign Order) intervention of the Holy See in another Sovereign Entity (the Sovereign Order of Malta), revealed this evening by Edward Pentin, are nothing short of astonishing. Excerpt: The Pope summoned Fra’ Festing to the Vatican on Jan. 24 on the strict instruction not to let anyone know about the audience — a modus operandi that has been used frequently during this pontificate, the Register has learned. During the meeting, Francis asked Fra’ Festing to resign immediately, to which the Grand Master agreed. The Pope...

    The Grand Magistry of the Sovereign Order of Malta, in response to the activities being carried out by a Group appointed by the Secretary of State of the Vatican, considers it appropriate to reiterate that the replacement of the former Grand Chancellor was an internal act of the government of the Order. Thus, considering the legal irrelevance of this Group and of its findings relating to the legal structure of the Order of Malta, the Order has decided that it should not cooperate with it. This is to protect its sovereignty against initiatives which claim to be directed at objectively...

    Cardinal Raymond Burke and the Knights of Malta’s leader defied the wishes of Pope Francis and the Holy See when they sacked a senior figure in a row about the distribution of condoms. Letters seen by The Tablet reveal that Francis specifically requested no one be dismissed in a dispute that saw Albrecht von Boeselager thrown out as Grand Chancellor and then suspended from the Order. The respected German Knight was last month sacked by the Knights’ Grand Master, Matthew Festing, in the presence of the Order’s patron and prominent conservative critic of Francis, Cardinal Burke. Both of them had...

According to state officials, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security tried to gain access to Georgia’s voting systems in the week following the presidential election.

That's one way of putting it. But in the end, when it comes to ruthlessly holding on to power, no one can compete with Her Majesty, and so that piker Castro got relegated to second place, while millions of English, Canadians, Jamaicans, Bahamians, Barbadians,...

"Fidel Castro was a symbol of the struggle for justice in the shadow of empire. Presente!" Stein wrote on Twitter Saturday afternoon. The verb form of the word literally means "present." The way Stein used it was something like a military salute ("present arms!") but for Latin American leftist radicals.

This death of this evil Communist and avowed enemy of the United States who took a wealthy, relatively free country and transformed into a poverty-stricken totalitarian hellhole was reported on Cuban television about an hour ago. Castro reportedly died at 10:29 p.m. Friday. He was 90. Fidel handed his wee baby brother Raul the Cuban presidency in 2008.

    Presidents don’t give up power. Executive orders don’t expire at the end of each presidential term. And every successive occupant of the Oval Office since George Washington, who issued the first executive order, has expanded the reach and power of the presidency. The Constitution invests the President with very specific, limited powers. In recent years, however, American presidents have anointed themselves with the power to wage war, unilaterally kill Americans, torture prisoners, strip citizens of their rights, arrest and detain citizens indefinitely, carry out warrantless spying on Americans, and erect their own secretive, shadow government. These are the powers that...

The power source of the cell that makes all the other systems function. The...

Composed in the late 50s B.C. while the Roman republic enjoyed a period of precarious stability under the triumvirate of Caesar, Pompey, and Crassus, and styled after the famous work of Plato, the Republic first addressed the claims of those who want nothing to do with governing the state, and would prefer a quiet life unsullied by politics. Politicians, after all, tend to be "worthless," according to these critics. Moreover, who would want to try to rule a capricious citizenry, or subject themselves to "foul...

    It was the Detroit News headline "Trump goes after Ford Motor Co." not how long Hillary went overtime in the restroom that got our attention. Donald Trump made a whistle stop outside Grand Rapids, Michigan to take aim at Ford’s plans to expand production in Mexico. Trump promised if elected he would threaten manufacturers with big tariffs on imports to discourage building manufacturing plants south of the border. Trump to Ford, "If you build that plant in Mexico, I’m going to charge you 35 percent on every car, truck part that you send into our country," he said. "Every single...

    Thursday, December 24, 2015 Trump, Dictatorship and Competing With An Illiberal Left Posted by Daniel Greenfield A number of editorials have appeared in center-right outlets accusing Trump supporters of wanting a dictator. Well obviously. Politics is a competition. Everyone wants to win the game based on the rules of the game. And the current rules of the game are not Constitutional. The left wanted a dictator. Obama gave them one. He implemented laws, started wars and took on powers which were not only beyond his authority, but which were opposed by the majority of Americans and elected legislators in Congress....

    This incessant clamoring by voters and punditry for better "leaders" and more "leadership" is one of the most unsavory, dangerous, and un-American tendencies in political discourse. When Donald Trump was asked last week by Joe Scarborough what he made of an endorsement from Vladimir Putin -- a thug who's probably murdered journalists and political opponents and more -- the GOP presidential front-runner responded, "He's running his country, and at least he's a leader, unlike what we have in this country." Then he offered an incredibly dumb moral equivalency about how the United States also does "plenty of killing." There was...

    After the latest Republican presidential debate, the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin argued that Ted Cruz had undone himself “courting” the “​Trumpkin base,” sinking “further into the far-right brew of isolationism and xenophobia.” And to prove this contention, Rubin grabbed hold of two words Cruz used, “​America”​ and “​first,”​ to claim that the senator from Texas was signaling support for 1930s/’​40s-style isolationism. This is a pretty popular accusation on the hawkish Right. Marco Rubio has also called Cruz an isolationist. Having watched the debate, though, as Donald Trump might complain, I think it is unfair. What I heard was not a...
  • Obama should be impeached; removed from office as unfit to serve; or forced to resign

    It is obvious that Obama is either treasonous or unfit to serve because of his love and loyalty to Islam (the enemy) or just plain incompetence. He admits that our country is under sustained attack, but refuses to recognize the obvious enemy (aiding and abetting) and refuses to secure the borders, secure the nation, or even enforce the law, and instead wants to unconstitutionally disarm we the people. These are treasonous acts during wartime. Impeach and remove or force him to resign ala Richard Nixon. IMPEACH THE BASTARD!!

    China has awarded its home-grown equivalent of the Nobel Peace Prize to Robert Mugabe, the man accused of driving Zimbabwe into poverty during his rule of more than three decades. The Confucius Peace Prize, set up in 2010 after the Nobel original was awarded to a Chinese dissident infuriating the ruling Communist Party, was a reward for Mr Mugabe’s “inspired national leadership and service to pan-Africanism”. "He has overcome difficulties of all kinds and has strongly committed himself to constructing his nation's political and economic order, while strongly supporting pan-Africanism and African independence," the citation read. Zimbabwe has become closely...
  • Obama says GOP candidates are like ‘Grumpy Cat’

    10/23/2015 6:53:44 PM PDT · by 100American · 30 replies ^ | Friday, October 23, 2015 | Dave Boyer President Obama ridiculed congressional Republicans and the GOP presidential candidates Friday as “gloomy” doomsayers. “They are like Grumpy Cat,” Mr. Obama said, referring to a popular meme and making a frowning face. “Everything is terrible according to them. ‘We’re doomed!’” Speaking at a Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, the president said GOP presidential candidates are in “the Twilight Zone” by pretending the years under President George W. Bush were pleasant. “You listen to them and they’ve constructed this entire separate reality,” he said. “If you listen to them, it’s like those were the good old days. Then I...

    Apparently, the feud between Donald Trump and Fox News has now morphed into one where Trump can say whatever he wants and Fox News will still allow him to come on the network to pitch his case to voters. Case in point: Sunday afternoon, Trump told his supporters to stop watching Megyn Kelly’s primetime show.
  • Exclusive: Obama to issue new Cuba rules

    The Obama administration has finalized new rules that sidestep Congress and continue to unilaterally chip away at the U.S. trade embargo with Cuba. The new regulations, written by the Commerce and Treasury Departments, expand and clarify rules issued in January that increase travel and trade between the U.S. and Cuba as part of the White House's decision to renew diplomatic relations with Cuba.
