    Coors Light is the official beer of the Fighting Illini. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Coors Light was voted on by the student body of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, or that the school’s sports teams drink the stuff at halftime or wear its logo on their cars. No, just like dozens of other products from soft drinks to gym shoes, it means that the company signed a sponsorship deal with the University of Illinois. Now, I don’t know how you feel about it, but with the cost of college skyrocketing, I’m inclined to think that almost any revenue...

    End of communism not good for Catholicism? Brazil and its large Catholic population are prisoners of socialism, but the Vatican has been worried (for about 1,000 years!) about the Orthodox Church By Julio Severo While the world is celebrating the end of communist tyranny in Europe, its end was not all positive for Catholicism, a senior Vatican official indicated on Monday. According to Reuters through WorldNetDaily, the Catholic official thinks the fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago brought religious tensions between Rome and Russia back to the surface. These tensions are much older than the Soviet Union....

    Last week, the government in Ukraine cut off pensions benefits to residents of rebel-held areas until such time as these areas return to Ukrainian control. Yesterday, in yet another scorched-earth policy move, president Petro Poroshenko announced Ukraine Rebel Areas to Lose State Services. Ukraine's president has ordered the withdrawal of all state services, including funding for hospitals and schools, from rebel-held areas. Mr Poroshenko's ruling says all state companies and institutions should end their work in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions within a week. It also says Ukraine's central bank is to close down all banking services - including card...

    “Homosexuality is Unnatural”: The Last Great Message of Myles Munroe on the Gay Agenda By Julio Severo Two months before being killed in a plane crash November 9, motivational preacher Myles Munroe wrote a press release against a gay parade in his home country, The Bahamas — a so powerful message that the English secular media have mentioned it in their reporting about his death. In an article entitled “Myles Munroe: Preacher who outraged many with his views on women and gays,” the British paper The Independent said, In September Munroe again stirred controversy at home, following a gay...
  • Lumbersexuals: Your Beard Doesn’t Make You Masculine

    11/17/2014 4:43:47 AM PST · by LeoMcNeil · 97 replies
    Have you noticed men wearing extremely long Civil War style beards lately? The so-called lumbersexual is essentially engaging in a pop-culture extreme overreaction to the metrosexual. You’ll recall the metrosexuals are generally straight men who spend an excessive amount of time on grooming and their clothes. In some ways the metrosexual mirrors certain aspects of the homosexual culture in this regard. The lumbersexual, in extreme overreaction to the metrosexual, has decided that the beard is the height of masculinity and demonstrate that masculinity in extreme manner. Both the metrosexual and the lumbersexual are just following the crowd, very few of...

    Matt Walsh takes on Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving 1, Matt 0.  Here’s the play by play. Matt says that stores like Macy’s, J.C. Penney, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Sears and Target (he calls them godless, anti-American) have ruined Thanksgiving by moving their opening times to Thursday afternoon versus the traditional Black Friday midnight madness.  He further sins by mistaking J.C. Penney as J.C. Penny’s, only proving further that in the halls of retail Valhalla, Matt really belongs in Helheim.  The man obviously doesn’t know his cufflinks from his garters. He reserves his special venom for Kmart (who owns Sears), which will keep its...

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations is the hyper-aggressive group which designates almost anyone critical even of radical Islam as “Islamophobic.” CAIR has done more than any group, except perhaps the Southern Poverty Law Center, at chilling speech on topics of national and international concern. CAIR also is a key component of the Democratic Party coalition, using its media savvy to demonize opponents. I wonder how CAIR is going to wiggle out of being designated by the United Arab Emirates as a terrorist group? Is the UAE “Islamophobic”?

    According to the FBI knives were used to kill more than rifles and shotguns. Here's an excerpt from Sean Davis article on this. In 2013, knives or other cutting instruments were used to kill 1,490 victims. In contrast, rifles were the cause of death of 285 murder victims. Shotguns were used in 308 murders. The 2013 numbers are even more interesting when you compare them to data from 2003, the last year in which the 1994 federal “assault weapon” ban was in effect. See the rest of the story here.

    Today there is a demand for sex without love, for a licentiousness in sex which has wrought a heartless society in which individuals do not care for anyone but themselves. The fruit of this demonic theology is the slaughter through abortion and euthanasia of human beings created in the Imago Dei. It is a theology of violence which is rooted in hatred of truth. For at the heart of immorality is falsity, the hatred of truth. Fr. Vincent P. Miceli, in an essay entitled "The Taproot of Violence," explains: "...violence entered creation from the rebellion of Lucifer. This rebellion arose...

As a full-time professional government hunter he should know. After all, he lives day by day in the region. But undying optimism had me looking for that “big boy” anyway.

    I operate on the assumption that leftists are four years old emotionally, and as such they are narcissistic: they perceive things as either all-good or all-bad. Let's take the leftist hatred of Christianity, which they see as the most horrible thing in the world. Why can they not see what Islam is? Because they can only perceive everything as good or bad, with nothing in-between. So if Christianity is evil ("spook in the sky," etc.) then Islam has to be good. I think it's just that simple. Right now leftists are overwhelmingly for open borders ("It's for the children"). But...
  • 'Interstellar,' 'Big Hero 6' on Track for $50-Million-Plus This Weekend

    Christopher Nolan's Interstellar took first place on Friday, though family moviegoers should drive Disney Animation's Big Hero 6 to a weekend win. After two days in limited release, Interstellar expanded to 3,561 locations and earned an estimated $17 million. That's well below Inception's $21.8 million debut, though it is at least roughly on par with Gravity's $17.5 million start last year. Interstellar's audience was split evenly between men (52 percent) and women, and skewed much older (75 percent were at least 25 years of age). They awarded the movie a "B+" CinemaScore, which is in line with Inception.
  • Vladimir Putin: "World Is at Historic Turning Point"

    Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered what was perhaps his most important speech, and definitely his most direct criticism of the West, at the Valdai Conference in Sochi on October 24. One independent analyst called it “the most important political speech since Churchill’s ‘Iron Curtain’ speech of March 5, 1946.” Another called it “epochal,” and a “marker of the end of the U.S.’s brief period as the one big, unchallenged bully on the block.” Another labeled the speech “a precursor to World War iii.” Yet the mainstream Western media largely ignored the speech, instead focusing that day on America’s midterm elections,...

    This election presents tough choices for some voters. Many are upset that the Republican Party hasn’t formally enunciated its core principles, properly nationalizing the election in a simple, coherent way. The national GOP has, instead, settled for letting it be a traditional midterm, a referendum on the policies of that man in the White House and the party that unconditionally, unquestioningly, supports his every act. And yes, for many voters, that may well be enough. But for those voters who would like a clear presentation of the difference between the modern Democrat Party and the Republican opposition, that difference can...

When it was found out that Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich opposed same-sex marriage, so much pressure was put on him because of his anti-same sex marriage views (he donated to Proposition 8) that he believed that he couldn’t do anything but resign.

The President of the University himself acknowledged that the protesters were peaceful and nonviolent. This flies in the face of false rumors and media reports to the contrary. In spite of the false and negative reports, the youth leaders stayed focused on their demands. The result is historic for their campus—among other wins, they secured an increased budget for Black Studies programs, financial...

    Obama: the “Savior” of the Brazilian Right By Julio Severo There is no doubt that Barack Obama is destroying America as her founders intended her to be. And with his politics of imposing the homosexual agenda through his State Department, he shows that he is capable of destroying other nations too. All Christian conservative leaders I know denounce his destructive capabilities. And all of them agree that Obama is a socialist. So his destructive capabilities are basically socialist. Even so, many, even Christians, have been mesmerized into seeing him as a “savior.” Progressive Christians in America see him in...

    Of all the issues in the news – the destruction caused by Obamacare, six years of record joblessness, the body counts of inner city street crime – no other issue encapsulates every aspect of this election like the Ebola epidemic. And don’t say it’s not an epidemic, because it most certainly is… just not here, not yet. Ebola is an epidemic in Africa, and it could be one here. One of the many jobs that our government has is ensuring that this awful contagious disease, fatal to somewhere between 50 and 70 percent of those stricken by it, doesn’t spread...

    A man on his Harley was riding along a California beach when suddenly  the sky clouded above his head and, in a booming voice, God said, 'Because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.' The biker pulled over and said, 'Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want. 'God replied, 'Your request is materialistic, think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking, the supports required reaching the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take! I can do...

    Isn't it absurd when rhetoric goes over the top. So it is with Nurse Kaci Hickox who has made a name for herself with her claim that being in a tent is 'inhumane' treatment. She might be sure to mention that to ages of American troops from Valley Forge to Gettysburg to Liberia...and all wars and deployments in between. In fact, Ms. Hickox, we always found a tent to be a bit of a luxury. We didn't even consider the ground to be inhumane. We considered it part of the job. When one goes adventuring on these self-announced, sacrificial journeys,...

    Father John Hunwicke writes, "The Holy Father has criticised the fault of 'wanting to close oneself within the written word, and not allowing oneself to be surprised by God, by the God of surprises; within the law, within the certitude of what we know and not of what we still need to learn and to achieve'. (He went on to make balancing criticisms of other and contrary attitudes.) When the first wave of Ordinariate clergy were being 'formed' at Allen Hall, our teaching was solidly, insistently, based upon the Conciliar and post-Conciliar Magisterium. This meant the written words of Vatican...

    So if your company has you go from being an employee to a contract worker is that the same as being terminated? Can you then collect unemployment if you decide not to work as a contract worker? I know that it has implications for health insurance. What are some of the other pros or cons to this situation? What are things to be aware of and look out for?
