  • New York Times Takes 50 on $135K Trip on Private Jet to Sound Alarm on Climate Change

    03/21/2018 9:30:16 AM PDT · by rktman · 23 replies ^ | 3/20/2018 | Tom Knighton
    New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof wants people to know how scary climate change is, so he and about 50 bazillionaires are traveling the world in a private jet to warn people. Rather than writing about climate change from the offices of the New York Times, this week Kristof filed his story from Easter Island. Kristof discussed how the island's natives deforested the place, making it unlivable. He then used that as a parable for climate change. Prove that climate scientists know what they're talking about first. Then prove that changes in behavior could have a measurable effect on the...
  • Two people charged with defrauding minority set-aside program in Chicago

    When governments play favorites on the basis of race in awarding contracts, the real scandal isn't people who illegally pretend to be of the favored race or gender or ethnicity, but the discrimination practiced by the government. That is my takeaway from this story by Samantha Bonkamp of the Chicago Tribune. The president and manager of a car wash that was under contract to wash city vehicles have been charged with defrauding Chicago of more than $900,000 by allegedly using suppliers that didn't comply with the minority business requirements. The two allegedly devised a scheme to inflate prices and make...

    Lettergate produces a casualty: Msgr. Viganò. Well… not quite. Posted on 21 March 2018 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf Lettergate has produced a casualty… another casualty, the first being the Truth.Or did it?The Prefect of the Secretariate for Communications, Msgr. Dario Viganò  – who so botched the the handling of the pro-Francis booklet roll out by unscrupulously slicing and dicing Benedict XVI’s letter and then weaponizing it – has resigned.  The Bolletino has a declaration from the Holy See Press Office’s Greg Burke.  It includes links to Viganò’s letter and Pope Francis’ response.Not content with writing just a resignation letter Viganò extends the agony with...

    After being fired by Attorney General Sessions on March 16, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe claimed: “This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally.” The Washington Post quoted McCabe saying: “The big picture is a tale of what can happen when law enforcement is politicized, public servants are attacked, and people who are supposed to cherish and protect our institutions become instruments for damaging those institutions and people.” Though blaming Trump, in reality, McCabe is describing his...
  • [Catholci Caucus] Vatican’s Fraudulent Doctoring of Letter from Benedict to Vigano Now Fully Exposed

    In the two days that have elapsed since my piece on this subject, the full extent of the Vatican’s doctoring of the letter from Benedict to Archbishop Vigano respecting the “theology of Pope Francis” has been revealed under growing public pressure for full disclosure.As has so often been the case, the sleuthing of Sandro Magister has led to a breakthrough. In the hyperlinked column, Magister notes another suspicious circumstance surrounding the letter, beyond the blurring of the first two lines and concealment of almost the entire second page by a pile of the eleven booklets on “the theology of Pope...

    The AP catches the Vatican doctoring a crucial photo of a “letter from Benedict” praising Francis. It’s business as usual for the Bergoglian propaganda machine.Meanwhile, Msgr. Dario Vigano, Vatican Communications/PR chief launches the SuperPope Tee.Five years after Benedict XVI fled the Chair of Peter, allowing “The Dictator Pope” to occupy it—thus accomplishing the temporarily thwarted objective of the St. Gallen “mafia”— Benedict now declares in a purported letter from him that “there is an internal continuity” between his pontificate and the Bergoglian dictatorship.  Addressed to Msgr. Dario Vigano, Prefect of the Secretariat for Communications, the letter has all the earmarks of...

Vigano at the presentation to the press of the series "Theology of Pope Francis" photo: Settimo Ceilo So yesterday's weird story about Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI writing to the prefect for secretariat for communications, Mons. Dario Edoardo Viganò stating his pontificate and that of Pope Francis have an "interior continuity," albeit with "differences in style and temperament" has rapidly fallen into complete disarray, as is unfortunately becoming so common with this pontificate. Key to developments is the fact that Vatican News only publish a couple of lines...

    In a recent interview on Secure Freedom Radio, I discussed with Frank Gaffney some of my research at Judicial Watch into Bruce and Nellie Ohr, the dynamic Democrat duo who lie at the heart of the Hillary Clinton-DOJ-FBI-Fusion GPS conspiracy (the "Clinton Conspiracy") to throw the presidential election to Hillary and, failing that, to undermine the Trump presidency with fabulist claims of "Russian-Trump collusion." A historical analogy occurred to me in our talk: Bill and Hillary Clinton are the 21st-century equivalent of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. The Clinton Conspiracy has everything one could ask for in a Cold War spy...
  • City of Baltimore to Ship Thousands of School Kids to DC for the Anti-Gun “March for Our Lives”

    Ah, Baltimore. The other city that never sleeps, primarily because its homicide rate is the highest in the country. Also interestingly, it’s a city big on gun control. How could a city with strict gun laws have such a high murder rate? I thought having more firearm laws would save lives. But true to the form of the insane, Baltimore is going to keep pushing forward with the idea that doesn’t work and promote gun restrictions by busing school children to Washington D.C. in order to participate in the March for Our Lives event this month. Not just a class,...

    ROME - For sheer theater, the Synods of Bishops on the family called by Pope Francis in 2014 and 2015 were two of the best shows the Vatican has put on in a long time - full of open clashes of ideas, personal and regional tensions, and even accusations of plots, behind-the-scenes maneuvering and stacking of the deck.After the first synod, that drama led to a book with the deliberately provocative title, The Rigging of a Vatican Synod: An Investigation into Alleged Manipulation at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family, written by Rome-based journalist Edward Pentin.Yet the man behind the scenes at both...

    President Donald Trump expressed disappointment that the FBI failed to stop the Florida shooter, despite being informed about his dangerous behavior. “Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter,” he wrote. “This is not acceptable.” Trump argued that the FBI was wasting too much time investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether or not his campaign colluded with the Russians. “They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion,” he wrote. “Get back to the basics...

    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra quit on Tuesday after admitting that he had fabricated a story about attending a meeting in 2006 at which he said Russian President Vladimir Putin had outlined a strategy for building a greater Russia. The incident has embarrassed Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s coalition government, which has a parliamentary majority of just one, and further strained difficult ties with Russia. Zijlstra, visibly emotional as he took the floor during a parliamentary debate convened to discuss his behavior, said he had decided to tender his resignation to the king because the situation risked harming...

    We frequently report to you various underhanded tactics and sneaky tricks pulled by various bishops and clergy to stamp out any resistance of faithful Catholics to oppose their liberalization of the Church. Most of the time, we can't be very specific because if we were specific, various clergy or even laity would suffer repercussions for telling us details. However, we now have a case that we can be very specific about because the case was fumbled by Church officials, and Church Militant became aware of the details as part of the record. It involves dirty tricks by Bp. Kevin Vann and his cohorts...

    In an interview with news agency Kathpress last week, Msgr. Alejandro Cifres, chief archivist for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, confirmed that a papal commission is reviewing Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI's 1968 encyclical reaffirming the Church's teaching on contraception. The admission contradicts earlier Vatican denials that such a commission exists.  In May 2017, Italian journalist Marco Tosatti broke the story that Pope Francis, in collaboration with Pontifical Academy for Life head Abp. Vincenzo Paglia, was "about to appoint — or [may] even have already formed — a secret committee to examine and possibly study changes to the Church's position on contraception," as...

    An official of the Holy See’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has admitted in an interview that a papal commission exists to carry out an historical review of the papal encyclical Humanae Vitae, according to Kathpress, the official news agency of the Catholic bishops of Germany. Kathpress reports that it received confirmation of the existence of the papal commission from Msgr. Alejandro Cifres, who has long overseen the archives of the CDF and is currently the dicastery’s Chief of Office. “It is not certain whether or not a reinterpretation of the ‘pill encyclical’ (Humanae Vitae) is coming...
