    August 23, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Leaked emails through WikiLeaks reveal that billionaire globalist George Soros - one of Hilary Clinton's top donors - paid $650,000 to influence Pope Francis’ September 2015 visit to the USA with a view to "shift[ing] national paradigms and priorities in the run-up to the 2016 presidential campaign." The funds were allocated in April 2015 and the report on their effectiveness suggests that successful achievements included, “Buy-in of individual bishops to more publicly voice support of economic and racial justice messages in order to begin to create a critical mass of bishops who are aligned with...

    The cartoonification of Noah’s Ark How such ‘delightful depictions’ downplay the Deluge—and Christianity by Phil Robinson A cartoon is a drawing in an unrealistic style, usually for satire, caricature or humour, and/or to appeal to children. ‘Cartoonification’ (aka ‘cartoonization’) is a recent colloquialism for the process of making something that’s real look ‘cartoonish’. I.e. drawing it in a (usually ridiculously) oversimplified, child-friendly or ‘delightful’ manner. Unfortunately, this has happened with Noah’s Ark, marker of one of the key events in biblical history. Most depictions of it have become thoroughly cartoonized! With the Bible so clear on the size, purpose and...

    Since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, we've founded a gun violence prevention organization, Americans for Responsible Solutions, and criss-crossed the nation, speaking out about the commonsense solutions, like closing loopholes in our criminal background check laws for gun sales, that have been proven to reduce gun violence and save lives. We've met with gun violence survivors, legislators and testified before Congress. We've heard from those on the front lines of our national gun violence crisis. We've worked with veterans, law enforcement, businessmen and women, members of the clergy, and domestic violence prevention leaders.

    As the fall semester begins, parents, students, taxpayers and donors should be made aware of official college practices that should disgust us all. Hampshire College will offer some of its students what the school euphemistically calls "identity-based housing." That's segregated housing for students who — because of their race, culture, gender or sexual orientation — have "historically experienced oppression." I'd bet the rent money that Hampshire College will not offer Jewish, Irish, Polish, Chinese or Catholic students segregated housing. Because there is no group of people who have not faced oppression, Hampshire College is guilty of religious and ethnic discrimination...

Huh? Let me get this clear. We have a current president and a presidential wannabe who have been instrumental in rolling out the red carpet for Russia in the Middle East; given rise to ISIS, simultaneously making a mockery of the money and lives we had previously sacrificed in Iraq; handed over $1.9 billion to Iran ($400 million of it in the form of...

    The unpopular truth is that most blacks are not interested in achievement as such nor moral propriety. Most are motivated to make white people pay for some perceived injustice, past and/or present. Whites were not singularly responsible for the slave trade; Muslims played the greater role and continue to at this very time in history. Slavery was immoral but it wasn’t illegal, and America had the good sense and decency to abolish it. Jim Crow was a white Democrat construct of rabid segregation, but that hasn’t stopped blacks from supporting Democrats en masse for the over 50 years – but...

    (CNN)Dramatic video has emerged of Iraqi police stripping an explosive belt from a child suspected in a suicide bombing attempt for ISIS. The footage appears to show security personnel restrain a visibly upset boy while they carefully cut the belt from the youth's torso in Kirkuk. Once the belt has been removed, the boy is scooped up and taken away. Kurdistan 24, a broadcast news station based out of Irbil, Iraq, aired Sunday's capture. Authorities said they believe the 15-year-old came to Kirkuk a week ago from Mosul, ISIS' most significant stronghold outside Syria. "He was captured before he reached...

A lot of people noticed, including the UK Daily Mail’s Alana Goodman. President Obama was a no-show at a flurry of fundraisers hosted by Hillary Clinton just a few miles from where he was staying at a beachfront vacation rental in Martha's Vineyard over the weekend.

But when a gun incident at a neighborhood school spurs one stay at home mom, Jenna (Andrea Anders), to rethink Rockford's obsessive gun culture, life in this idyllic town is turned upside-down. Much to the chagrin of her husband, (Matt Passmore), Jenna ignites a movement by recruiting the women to withhold sex from the men until every gun in Rockford is vanquished. A wild and hilarious showdown ensues between the sexes. As tensions and libidos rise, the men and women of...

    The Black Lives Matter group had a protest march in Oakland, Calif., July 21, and a number of the participants were little children. They’d been trained in social activism at something called the “Abundant Beginnings” summer camp. One of the youngest was a 3-year old little girl, Jonnie-mae Taylor of Berkeley, who led the chant: “What do you want?” The response was “Justice!” She asked, “When do you want it?” The response: “Now!” Mind you, she is 3 years old. This child was one of some 20 who attended that camp to be trained in “social responsibility and justice.” One...

    “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World” is Werner Herzog’s documentary about the internet. For some readers, that sentence will be sufficient. One of our most intellectually ambitious filmmakers — a self­professed seeker of ecstatic truths, a tireless foot soldier of cinema — tackles what he calls “one of the greatest revolutions” humanity has experienced. The combination of Mr. Herzog’s doggedly curious sensibility and the mysteries of the digital universe seems both improbable and irresistible. In the course of a singularly peripatetic career, that curiosity has most often taken Mr. Herzog, who will turn 74 on Labor Day, into...

    The NFL has added gun ownership conduct and safety to its annual social responsibility training for players. Per espnW.com's Jane McManus, the NFL "pared down and changed" elements of the social responsibility training and added videos—including showing "a drunken driver swerving a car all over the road"—with players being "asked to discuss" afterward. The gun conduct portion came about following an offseason in which Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib suffered a gunshot wound to the leg in June and former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Will Smith was murdered in April. NFL vice president of social responsibility Anna Isaacson explained...

Their recent verdict: “planet-warming pollution produced by airplanes endangers human health by contributing to climate change.” Such is the basis for their “endangerment finding” under the Clean Air Act, which now triggers the legal requirement to impose the first-ever government regulations of aircraft emissions and extend the EPA’s reach into yet another segment of the U.S. economy. The announced plan to reduce aircraft emissions takes place as President...

Thus the outrage directed at Donald Trump and, not just Trump, but anyone who challenges neoconservative orthodoxy. What should be a political disagreement between fellow citizens becomes a zealous defense of the one true faith - a faith that bestows moral entitlement on its adherents and will brook no contradictions. Disagreement therefore becomes heresy.

Brett Ratner stood on a gold curtain-lined stage built for a Rat Pack-inspired jazz band in the backyard of his Hilhaven Lodge estate just before 9 p.m. Aug. 10 and began with an admission. He had invited several hundred friends and colleagues — among them Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara, CBS Corp. chairman Leslie Moonves, Viacom's Shari Redstone,...

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign reacted strongly to the news that that Breitbart News’s executive chairman left the company to work for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook opened a conference call with reporters by calling Breitbart a “so-called news site” that trafficked in conspiracy theories and began smearing the journalistic company with the usual leftist attacks on Republicans and conservatives. “Donald Trump has decided to double down on his most small, nasty, and divisive instincts by turning his campaign over to someone who is best known for running a so called news site that peddles divisive, at times,...

    Is Hillary Clinton squashing Donald Trump into oblivion in the polls? Or is her lead over him perilously shrinking? One thing we know is: there are countless ways to spin a poll. Consider the case of selective reporting on the most recent Bloomberg national poll.  On Aug. 10, Bloomberg reported “Clinton up 6 on Trump in Two Way Race.” But looking at the actual poll, Trump has moved so close to Clinton, the results are within the margin of error.In the most recent poll, the spread between Clinton and Trump in a two-person race was down to just 3 percentage points, Clinton at 45%...

    The Iranian government is relying more and more on mass executions in order to control its citizens. Iranian officials used to keep their executions secret. However, over the last year since the nuclear agreement was reached, Iranian authorities have been showing no fear or concern when it comes to publicly announcing that they have mass-executed a group of people. Iran is ranked the first in the world, followed by China, when it comes to hanging people. The mullahs have started the month August by mass executing at least 25 people who are from a religious minority. Not only did Iran...

    Using their “almost 200 century-old formula,” the editors of the “time-tested and generation-approved” Farmers’ Almanac are predicting a frost-bound, Siberian winter for two-thirds of the United States “Return of the Ice Cold Winter” is how the 2017 edition of the famed annual publication characterizes the impending chill, according to a press release. “Winter is coming!” the Farmers’ Almanac editors announce, as they advise that this year might be a good time to “splurge on a snow blower.” (RELATED: US College Professor Demands Imprisonment For Climate-Change Deniers) The “amazingly accurate” long-range forecast — starting on page 65 — covers September 2016...

    ESPN’s Around the Horn has gone from one of the best, longest running panel shows the network has ever had, to an absolutely farcical flagship of left-wing lunacy. Yesterday, the panel at ATH lamented the fact that Cam Newton didn’t feel racially persecuted. Because, apparently, that’s bad. On Tuesday’s edition of the show, the panel discussed really silly comments made by the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers, who said the NFL’s culture makes players not speak publicly on cultural issues, out of fear of repercussions.

    Belgian police are desperately hunting a radicalised 15-year-old son of an imam who appeared in a video pleading for the 'annihilation of all Christians'. The chilling video shows the teenager, who has not been named, calling for Allah to 'destroy' Christians and 'kill them all'. He sang the alarming outburst which was filmed in Verviers, east Belgium, and police added that the boy has been recognised and is on a list on radicalised people. A source told the Daily Telegraph that the youngster is the son of a local radical imam - a leader of a mosque. The source added...

    When you finally come to the conclusion there is a God, you’re likely to try to attempt to please Him. And this is where it can get dangerous. You might be on your way to the sanctuary for worship, and you see a man curled up by the side of the road, bloody and beaten by robbers. Something tells you the man needs your help (that’s God talking to you), but you are wearing your Sunday best, and you’re not trained as a first responder, and you’ve been given the honor of opening today’s meeting in prayer, and, besides, this...
