    The Return of Vatican II Fever The symptoms are unmistakable: after a period of relative remission during the years of Pope Benedict’s mysteriously self-terminated reign, the postconciliar “process of decay” remarked by the former Cardinal Ratzinger has resumed with a vengeance, like a rebound infection after an incomplete course of antibiotics. The progressivist priests and prelates who are the disease-causing agents of Vatican II Fever are now running amok throughout the ecclesiastical bloodstream. They have been let loose by a Pope who is so fond of publicly staged “surprises,” all tending to the diminution of traditional Roman Catholicism, that Respice...

    In a May 15, 2014 interview on Iqraa TV, Saudi scholar and former director of the channel Nabil Hammad described an alleged Jewish-Zionist conspiracy to destroy the moral values of humanity. Hammad claimed that characters on children's shows, like Mickey Mouse and Sesame Street, were invented to advance these schemes. Following are excerpts from the interview: Nabil Hammad: What films have we produced in the Arab world? As we all know, people like watching movies. […] What animated films have we produced?

Since he left FOX...he seems to have changed...and the immediate disregard to the Bundy situation really made me sick.

    When John McCain was running for president in 2008, he often spoke warmly of his friendship with Hillary Rodham Clinton as an illustration of his ability to work across the political aisle... Six years later -- even with all the partisan bickering over the attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi -- that warmth between McCain and the Clintons appears to have survived. It was evident at the opening session of the youth-focused conference known as the Clinton Global Initiative University on Friday night at Arizona State University.

    Few people understand how lawless Abraham Lincoln was in propagating our country’s biggest nightmare—the Civil War. And not enough people sense the parallel of Obama’s emerging lawlessness. Lincoln achieved his political aims by bullying—rather than effective, innovative solutions and negotiations. Here are some facts: • Lincoln closed more than 300 newspapers that disagreed with him. • He arrested members of state legislatures, preventing them from debating the secession issue. • He ordered military trials for citizens when civilian courts were available. Many of these trials resulted in hangings. • Operating as a military dictator, Lincoln spent millions not authorized by...

    Mayoral front-runner Bill de Blasio stood silently by as celebrity booster Harry Belafonte compared the Tea Party-supporting Koch brothers to the Ku Klux Klan inside a Harlem Church on Sunday — then let the inflammatory attack slide as he spoke to the overflow congregation. De Blasio warmly embraced Belafonte after the liberal icon called the Kochs “white supremacists” and “men of evil,” and repeatedly praised the actor during his own speech from the pulpit of the First Corinthian Baptist Church. Belafonte, 87, viciously tore into billionaire energy moguls and political activists Charles and David Koch as he introduced de Blasio...

When the bar is low enough to include political enemies, our descent into totalitarianism is virtually assured. The Patriot Act, as bad as...

Professor Bradford Scharlott of Northern Kentucky University has looked into this story in detail and written a long academic article about it. He concludes two things: First, that the "conspiracy theory" is likely true--Sarah Palin staged a huge hoax, and, second, The American media is pathetic for...

    Al Gore has whipped up another blizzard of controversy by arguing global warming — climate change, if you prefer — causes more snow. Challenged by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly to explain why southern New York (and, for that matter, large parts of North America and Europe) looks like “the tundra” this winter, Gore responded on his blog by quoting approvingly from a year-old column by the Chicago Tribune’s Clarence Page, commenting on last winter’s severe weather and heavy snowfall in parts of the United States. To wit: “In fact, scientists have been warning for at least two decades that global...

    Jared Lee Loughner’s rants about grammar and mind control track closely to the writings of a conspiracy theorist who believes that is how the government controls the populace, one leading group says – and the man tells POLITICO he agrees with some of Loughner’s statements. The far-right activist, David Wynn Miller, said in a telephone interview that he didn’t know Loughner, but agreed with his statement in a YouTube video that “the government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar.” “Absolutely I would agree with it,” said Miller, 62, a former tool-and-die maker from Milwaukee...

    The visionary: Ron Paul Question: Considering all spheres of endeavor, who would you nominate as Leader of the Year in 2010? Why? Congressman Ron Paul should be named Leader for 2010. Congressman Paul is a man of character. He does not retreat from his opinion in the face of hostile opposition and corporate-controlled media's "ignore strategy," unlike the rest of the so-called leaders of both major parties. In April 2007, when Fox News hosted the Republican debate held in Florida, there was an effort to assemble an anti-Ron Paul crowd and twice he was booed for his non-interventionist foreign policy....

    Rep. Ron Paul, the Texas Republican who has passionately called for dismantling the Federal Reserve, will be running the panel that oversees the central bank when Republicans take the House majority next year. Mr. Paul has introduced legislation to abolish the Fed, wrote the book, “End the Fed,” and rallied support for eliminating it. Rep. Spencer Bachus (R., Ala.), who will take over the House Financial Services Committee from Rep. Barney Frank (D., Mass.), announced today that Mr. Paul, a libertarian who won a fervent following when he ran for president in 2008, will head the Domestic Monetary Policy Subcommittee....

    Despite rumors that various splinter forces within the Republican party are attempting to block Ron Paul's fateful chairmanship of the Monetary Policy Subcommittee, we now have confirmation that the only sane politician left will now be Ben Bernanke's direct nemesis during any and all future Congressional spectacles starring the printing unchallenged one. And with US debt creeping ever closer to the debt ceiling, coupled with the dollar for dollar monetization of the US deficit, such spectacles will soon be plenty.
  • Rep. Ron Paul Makes Special Request Of Wikileaks on Fox’s Freedom Watch

    Republican Congressman Ron Paul may be Julian Assange’s most loyal supporter in Congress. Visiting Fox Business’ Freedom Watch– a program on which Assange has been welcome several times– Rep. Paul went to bat for the Wikileaker in the middle of condemning the secrecy of the Federal Reserve, and made a little request of his own: “every conversation of the last ten years with the Federal Reserve people.” Chop, chop, Assange! Rep. Paul, who is also a regular guest on the program, chatted for some time with the injustices of having a “secret government” like the Federal Reserve with Judge Andrew...

    I had two opinions in the past two days. I saw a missile in the sky over California. Is saw an Islamic crescent in the Google logo. You didn't see it? Fine. But the invective, the insults, the bitterness this launched has shocked me to the core. What in the heck is going on here?
