    The very liberal Catholic bishop of San Diego, Robert McElroy, who supports giving Communion to the divorced and remarried, contrary to Church teaching, and embracing “LGBT families,” said that social justice activists must become “disruptors” to counter the efforts of the federal government to apprehend illegal aliens. “Well now, we must all become disruptors,” said Bishop McElroy in a Feb. 18 speech at the U.S. Regional World Meeting of Popular Movements in Modesto, Calif. “We must disrupt those who would seek to send troops into our streets to deport the undocumented, to rip mothers and fathers from their families,” he...

    Marxist Hypocrisy on Display In California On December 6, 2016 upon the return of the Legislature and newly-elected members, Sen. John Moorlach, R-Costa Mesa, authored Senate Resolution 8, introduced to simply welcome newly-elected President Donald Trump and acknowledge the historical peaceful transition of power. SR8 said the Senate “hopes for the peaceful transition of power in the United States, that the incoming presidency will be a success, and that the president-elect will take his responsibilities seriously to ensure a strong and unified America.”

    Pope Francis says he is concerned about what he calls a “hemorrhage” of priests and nuns from the Catholic church.

Francis lamented that many conduct their lives based on “ŕ la carte” choices. …

    He has been pigeonholed as fearless reformer, but questions are arising about his judgment On 2 January, the Vatican published a letter from Pope Francis to the world’s bishops in which he reminded them that they must show ‘zero tolerance’ towards child abuse. The next day, the American Week magazine published an article that told the story of ‘Don Mercedes’ — Fr Mauro Inzoli, an Italian priest with a passion for expensive cars and underage boys.In 2012, Pope Benedict stripped Inzoli of his priestly faculties, effectively defrocking him. In 2014, however, they were restored to him — by Pope Francis,...

At a time when we turn the page on one year and look ahead to the future, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for everything you’ve done to make America stronger these past eight years.

    When Pope Francis delivers his Christmas message this weekend, he will do so not just as the head of the Catholic Church but as the improbable standard-bearer for many progressives around the world. With conservative and nationalist forces on the rise in many places and with figures such as U.S. President Barack Obama and French President François Hollande on their way out, many on the left—from socialists in Latin America to environmentalists in Europe—are looking to the 80-year-old pontiff for leadership.“Pope Francis really inspires a lot of people to want to fight.

    After five years of business, Grand Rapids, Michigan’s famously Marxist vegan sandwich shop is closing its doors due to bumps in the road toward what it hoped would be an egalitarian, worker-run business model. The Garden Diner and Café put Grand Rapids on the alternative diet map thanks to its widely acclaimed vegan, vegetarian, and raw food offerings. Unfortunately, the restaurant also proved the old adage that it doesn’t matter how tasty your black bean patty is if you can’t afford to pay your workers and it takes 45 minutes for you to put a sandwich together.

The 55-year-old citizen of the Netherlands, whose name was given as Musa A., was arrested in Hamburg, Germany’s federal prosecutor said. The man is thought to be a “leader” of the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front (DHKP-C) — a radical Marxist group outlawed by Ankara after allegedly staging several attacks and assassinations against police, the security services and US interests in Turkey. …

He reported on 18 November – the day before the controversial “non-existent” Consistory of Cardinals in Rome – that Pope Francis has decided to re-write the statutes of the Pontifical Academy for Life in a way which essentially re-makes this organization. Relying on a 5 November 2016 report published by the German branch of Vatican Radio, called Radio Vatikan, Nardi has published the new statutes of the Academy. Archbishop Vincenzo...

    Animosity against the news media flared at Trump’s rallies on Wednesday as he accused reporters of taking part in a “rigged” system. The tension was particularly acute in Miami, where the usual buffer zone between supporters and the traveling press was missing. Screaming supporters stood just inches away from reporters. At one point, the candidate appeared to single out NBC News reporter Katy Tur for criticism, as he has done before. “We have massive crowds. There’s something happening. They’re not reporting it. Katy, you’re not reporting it, Katy. There’s something happening, Katy. There’s something happening, Katy,” Trump said.

    Hillary Clinton looked to separate Donald Trump from recent Republican presidents on Friday, laying out a plan to encourage national service while arguing that Trump would never address the subject. The rollout of Clinton's plan -- which includes tripling the size of AmeriCorps and founding a reserve corps of 5 million people to respond to natural disasters -- was meant to be a moment for Clinton to talk more about her policies and values than about her boisterous opponent. But as has been the case throughout 2016, Clinton's speech was a both a direct and implicit rebuke of Trump.

Places where residents tire of seeing police only when teams of officers sweep in to make arrests, and remember well other blacks killed by police officers who did not face...

That "effectively amounts to forced labor," according to Amnesty International, which derided the decree as "unlawful."

A bankruptcy would rank among the largest involving a non-financial company in the past 10 years, according to bankruptcydata.com. SunEdison declined to comment. SunEdison's shares - already reeling from a Wall Street Journal report on Monday that the company was being investigated for overstating its cash position - fell as much as 60 percent to a record low of 50 cents.

Before I explain how that relates to stagnant wages for professors let me provide some objective facts about declining teacher workload. In...

    The Pope’s ill-considered comments about Donald Trump are of a piece with hysterical overreactions to him and his candidacy in this and other countries. No pope has ever overtly intervened in an American political campaign before. The only known intervention by the Roman Catholic leadership in U.S. elections were in 1936 and 1940. On the former occasion, the ravings of Father Charles E. Coughlin, the mellifluous Canadian-born radio priest, had become so irritating to then-president Franklin D. Roosevelt that Pope Pius XI sent the Vatican secretary of State, Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli (who would succeed the pope as Pius XII in...

    Under President Obama's proposed budget for fiscal 2017, the Justice Department would abandon a program that reimburses state and local prisons for housing illegal immigrants convicted of crimes. The move to eliminate the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAPP) - which would save the Justice Department $210 million - is likely to face significant resistance in Congress and from local officials concerned about a loss of funding. The White House has moved in the past to trim or cancel the program, and each year, it has survived, said Jessica Vaughan, the director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration...
  • For millennials, Sanders is a grandpa who gets them

    01/17/2016 9:55:39 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 43 replies
    Bernie Sanders is no one's idea of a camera-ready presidential candidate. He's a "democratic socialist" running against an icon of the Democratic establishment. (And as satisfying as anti-establishment sentiment may feel for some right now -- the establishment is still pretty damn important.) His white hair is kind of wild, he's awkward, doesn't smile much, he hunches over and waves his arms when he speaks. He campaigns in rolled-up shirtsleeves and has pens in his shirt pocket. When it comes down to it, his radical policy positions and general cranky-grandpa vibe don't exactly scream "President of the United States."

    BrasĂ­lia (AFP) - Brazil's Supreme Court said it delayed until Thursday the next step in a case that could lead President Dilma Rousseff's impeachment. The decision, originally scheduled for Wednesday, was postponed after the court ran out of time. "Tomorrow we'll stay as long as necessary," said Chief Justice Ricardo Lewandowski. The march towards the unpopular president's possible ouster was stalled by Rousseff's allies in Congress, who say that opposition legislators violated the constitution in their rush towards impeachment. They claim that the commission looking into impeachment illegally insisted on secret votes while picking its members, and that it is...

    Kudos to the New York Times News Service for revealing to its readers that long time Cuba “source” and college lecturer Arturo Lopez Levy “used to work for the Cuban intelligence services.” Previously, the Times appears to have used biographic snippets provided by the long-time graduate student. Let us hope that in the near future, the esteemed newspaper will address Lopez-Levy’s close familial ties to Cuban President Raul Castro. After all, readers deserve to be told when a source has such vested interests.

    President Barack Obama on Saturday issued a statement about the shooting that took place at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colo., on Friday.Three people, including a policeman, were killed in the incident.“If we truly care about this--if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience--then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them,” said Obama. “Period.  Enough is enough.”Here is the full text of President Obama’s statement: The last...

    According to Van Jones, Donald Trump acted in an “Un-American” way when he claimed to have seen thousands of New Jersey Muslims on television, celebrating the 9/11 terror attacks. “This is just terrible. You have a presidential candidate who is deliberately stoking fear and smearing a whole population of people,” said Jones. “Somebody’s gonna go hurt some Muslim as a result of this kind of hatred.” For those who don’t remember, Van Jones is the dedicated Communist appointed by Barack Obama in 2009 as a special advisor for Green Jobs. Jones “…was the leader and founder of a radical group,...

    Ever since Hillary Clinton announced her run for the presidency concerns have been raised in many quarters, by people of all political persuasions, that she was simply too old to hold the office if she was elected. Hillary, if elected, would be the second oldest person to win the office after Ronald Reagan. 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...

    If you sit around believing the right wing radio propaganda that the wealthy know what's best for us then be prepared to suffer the fate that many others have suffered under the oppression of aristocrats in the past. But we live in a Democratic Republic overwhelmingly dominated by voters who are not wealthy. So its pretty simple to go out and vote for our own interest every couple of years-- without the need for any mass protest or even any union participation. We could raise the incomes of the poorest by simply passing laws to raise the minimum wage. Many...
