    For centuries, church and prophecy scholars have studied the predictions of a 12th century Irish saint, but most laymen paid no attention until now. St. Malachy was known for accurately predicting events during his own lifetime and for countless miraculous healings; including the son of Scotland's King David in 1140. But he also reportedly received a heavenly vision, the church calls a “personal revelation,” that identified the next 112 popes would lead the Catholic church before the end of time. The list vanished for hundreds of years, and many think it’s fake or forged. The church doesn't endorse it, and...

    Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), who is challenging Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as House minority leader, said Sunday that there will be a “Youngstown street fight in the Capitol” if President-elect Donald Trump attempts to defund Planned Parenthood or tries to dismantle Obamacare. “Let me say, if he tries to defund Planned Parenthood, if he tries to kick people off their health insurance, if they try to privatize Medicare or cut taxes for the wealthy, you know, we are going to have a Youngstown street fight in the Capitol. That's what's going to happen,” Ryan told Jake Tapper after the host...

    The nation’s most influential business lobby urged President-elect Donald Trump on Monday to take a “balanced” approach to immigration and to expand international trade, two areas where the Republican has promised to upend traditional party orthodoxy. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce told Mr. Trump that U.S. companies need to attract immigrants to grow.

    Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he wants President-elect Trump to select a "mainstream" candidate to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Asked by NBC on Sunday whether he was comfortable filibustering any Trump nominee for the court, Schumer dodged answering the question directly. "I hope that President Trump picks a mainstream candidate," Schumer said. "A mainstream candidate is somebody you may not agree with on every issue, but basically believes in precedent." NBC's Chuck Todd interrupted Schumer and asked, "What does that mean? Can he nominate somebody in your mind...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump will not derail progress made in fighting climate change and creating clean-energy jobs, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency insisted on Monday in arguing "the inevitability of our clean energy future is bigger than any one person or nation." EPA chief Gina McCarthy said the world is "in a spectacularly different place today than we were when President (Barack) Obama took office," citing new environmental rules and actions to help create thousands of jobs in renewable energy such as wind and solar power.

    During the latter years of the last century, Congress enacted reforms to the federal immigration law. The part of this enactment with which, in light of the above, everyone should be concerned is now in the United States Code at Section 1324a(h)(2), where it mandates the federal pre-emption of: ... any State or local law imposing civil or criminal sanctions (other than through licensing and similar laws) upon those who employ, or recruit or refer for a fee for employment, unauthorized aliens. This provision flagrantly robs the American workers and businesses injured by the use of illegal alien workers of...

    The Pentagon warned the Syrian regime Monday it is prepared to shoot down planes threatening US-led coalition forces in northern Syria, but stopped short of declaring a no-fly zone. US military officials reacted furiously last week after jets from the regime of President Bashar al-Assad targeted Kurdish forces and coalition advisers fighting Islamic State jihadists around the northeastern city of Hasakeh. The US military scrambled fighters on at least two occasions to ward off the Syrian planes, but neither incident resulted in air-to-air contact.

    In the spring of 1966, riding high on the artistic success of ‘Rubber Soul,’ the Beatles went into the studio to begin crafting what would become their greatest record. It is spring 1966, and the Beatles are ensconced in London’s EMI Studios, where they have embarked upon their latest manipulation of time. The Christmas season just passed had seen the release of the band’s sixth album, Rubber Soul, a game-changer of a disc that wedded American rhythm and blues to English folk music, as if the two genres were meant to go together all along. The Beatles, as the popsmiths-cum-pied...

From my TV I couldn't hear but he repeated the names Newt Guingrich, Jeff Sessions and Condi Rice. Only three. I've always believed that if her entire story were made known, Condoleezza Rice would be a perfect role model for young Americans of all background and an inspiration to all adult Americans of color.

    In the marketplace, Brand Trump is authentic. It stands for aspiration and success, but more the ostentatious and flashy success that appeals to the newly wealthy, the entrepreneur, the outsider. For these consumers, brand Trump clearly delivers; Trump hotels, and resorts average a 4.5 rating on TripAdvisor. Brand Trump has been extended to other categories, from steaks, to education, to apparel. Not all of these ventures have succeeded. Few guests see the competencies of a good hotelier as relevant to designing distinctive quality suits. But, for a minority of consumers who embrace the Trump lifestyle, these other products can add...

In one of the latest moves, a decision from the Fourth Federal Circuit struck down a Virginia school board ruling that children must use the bathroom corresponding to their biological sex. As Hadley Arkes notes, one of the ruling judges argued that while the text of the Civil Rights Act barred discrimination based on sex, that text could now be interpreted to preclude discrimination based on “gender,” a term the modern use of which would have been...

Who is this Hawkeye pastor and why should anyone care about his opinion? In 2012, conservative commentator, Iowan Steve Deace, a #NeverTrump and Cruz supporter, identified the most effective “super-operatives” in Iowan politics. One, he wrote was an “unassuming pastor” of Walnut Creek Church, who “could very well be the most powerful man you’ve never heard of.” “He could easily mean the difference between victory and defeat...

    (RNS) More than 50 conservative Catholic activists and political leaders have come out in support of Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz in an effort to shore up Catholic backing for Cruz as an alternative to Donald Trump. Among them is a priest from South Carolina who may be skirting the edges of his own church’s policies against clerics becoming involved in politics. Trump is currently leading the three-man GOP field and has drawn strong primary support from Catholic voters despite his controversial rhetoric and past stands on key issues like abortion rights, which he once supported. The Catholics endorsing Cruz,...

That assertion is based on the campaign’s internal data analysis of the contests ahead, Cruz’s confidence in the...

    Abortion access in the U.S. has been vanishing at the fastest annual pace on record, propelled by Republican state lawmakers’ push to legislate the industry out of existence. Since 2011, at least 162 abortion providers have shut or stopped offering the procedure, while just 21 opened. At no time since before 1973, when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion, has a woman’s ability to terminate a pregnancy been more dependent on her zip code or financial resources to travel. The drop-off in providers—more than one every two weeks—occurred in 35 states, in both small towns and big cities that are...

Rubio, meanwhile, felt the need to get to the right of Bush on abortions during "crisis pregnancy" scenarios. Bush has been left for dead by pundits in recent weeks and months.

    For 50 years, California has led the nation in passing environmental standards to protect its beaches, restore wildlife and reduce smog. But as the final days of this year's legislative session in Sacramento loom, a controversial bill that would require the state to reduce petroleum use by motor vehicles at least 50 percent by 2030 is causing people in the Capitol and around the state to ask: "Is that even possible?" Yet lost in the debate are two key facts: The state will get halfway to that goal even if it does nothing. That's because of federal rules put into...

    I want to beat Hillary Clinton next year. I want to beat her with a Republican who is not just another party apparatchik surrounded by lower level party apparatchiks within the Republican Party. But I know we cannot beat Hillary Clinton with this level of anger. We won’t be able to draw people to our side and our cause like this. I get the anger. I do. I am angry at the betrayal and the repeated lies from Washington Republicans who say they love children, but won’t even defund Planned Parenthood. I get the anger of voters who sent men...

    Sarah Palin, unlike many of the GOP presidential candidates who made the trip to Cleveland for the Fox News/Facebook debates, has nearly single-handedly carved a new foundation for conservative resurgence since 2009. Sure 2009 may seem like a long time ago in political seasons, but can you imagine what the state of affairs would be in local, state and national conservative political circles if Palin had not arrived on the scene to breathe life and vitality into conservatism.

    In 1973, Major League Baseball changed forever. Following a year when the American League recorded a batting average of .239, the AL instituted the designated hitter rule, allowing a team to place a hitter in the batting order instead of forcing the team’s pitcher to step up to the plate. Since that season, there has been an imbalance between the AL and the National League — which still requires a spot in the batting order for the team’s pitcher. Now, more than 40 years later, talks of making the two leagues consistent have begun to heat up once again. “It’s...

And I’m like, ‘I don’t want to participate.’” Said Platz The East Dallas resident said it started with a series of three letters from the U.S. Census Bureau. A few days later after receiving the third later, a...

    I am starting a petition today to ban the Democratic Party! The Dem. party was the party of slavery and resisted the civil rights movement! Every day that that the "party of slavery" and "Anti-Civil Rights" party exists is a painful reminder of decades of division, terror, injustice, and institutional racism that were forced on the United States of America. This party judged men and women based on the color of their skin and not the content of their character. Evil wins (#EvilWins) as long as this political party functions. Additionally, the democratic party logo, the donkey, is painful reminder...
