    The annual national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is this weekend. What many Catholics do not realize is that at the very core of the CCHD is a philosophy of revolutionary leftist ideologies. Over the years, the CCHD has been rightly criticized for funding organizations that are themselves promoting contraception, homosexuality, abortion, prostitution, and socialism. But these issues are only symptoms of an overall thrust that is aimed directly at convincing Catholics to fund Marxist revolution in the United States. The intent of this article, while certainly not exhaustive, is to help Catholics understand how the...

    Summary: Over 100 cities have pledged to create bold climate action plans as President Obama & Secretary Kerry travel to Paris to negotiate an international climate agreement. In August, as part of an ambitious plan to expand renewable energy to households across America, President Obama called on all U.S. mayors to publicly commit to a local climate action plan. The President set a goal of at least 100 U.S. cities signing the Compact of Mayors prior to the Paris UN climate change meeting (“COP”). Today, that goal has not only been met, but surpassed. Why are U.S. cities so important...

    Prepare to be nudged by Obama's new behavioral science squads for your own good, of course. Under the guise of better serving the American people through government, Obama signed an executive order this week calling for federal agencies and departments to deploy emerging behavioral science techniques against the public.Among other goals, the expansion of federal mind manipulation is supposed to help more Americans access government welfare programs, take their recommended vaccines, supply more information about themselves to the federal government, and accelerate the transition toward what Obama called a low-carbon economy. The controversial decree, signed on September 15, explicitly...

    In a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) leads Republican candidate Donald Trump by a landslide margin of 12 percentage points, 53 to 41. In the McClatchy poll, Sanders also leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) by a landslide margin of 10 points, 51 to 41. The huge Sanders advantage over Trump is not new. In the last four match-up polls between them reported by Real Clear Politics, Sanders defeated Trump by margins of 12, 9, 9 and 2 percentage points. It is shocking that the data suggests that Sanders has a lead over Trump...

In essence, public diplomacy is the defense and promotion of...

    In CBS’ “Buen Arbol” episode of Code Black, a Hispanic mom in America illegally seeks medical help for her young son. Lucky for her, she’s in the sanctuary city of Los Angeles and this hospital won’t alert law enforcement.  When young Pablo is brought to the nation’s busiest emergency room, his mother thought his breathing problems were brought on by asthma. After an examination, Christa (Bonnie Somerville) suspects it is, instead, Cystic Fibrosis. As she explains the diagnosis to the mother, Christa assures her that the disease can be managed with proper care. Deducing that the mother is in America...

I get very bored when people tell me (which is often) that Israel murders Palestinians. Whilst it is true that Palestinians get murdered in Israel, what this statement fails to comprehend is that Israelis get gaoled for murdering anybody, including Palestinians, as in any civilized Western country, but unlike most Middle Eastern countries including the Palestinian Authority (PA). The difference here is the relentless propaganda to demonise Israel. Jews have been demonised down through...

Thus, power elites can shape behaviors and attitudes by applying various techniques of crowd psychology, focused on propaganda and silencing dissent. ...

    A Russian air force jet has been shot down by Turkish forces after it strayed into the country's airspace, according to unconfirmed reports. Eyewitnesses reported a large explosion in Huraytan, northern Syria, as three fighter jets were sighted flying overhead, the Express said. A Turkish-based journalist tweeted that three Turkish planes were responding after radar locked on to some "mysterious" MiG-29 jets, which are a similiar model to those used by Russian forces. The news comes after Turkey scrambled F-16 fighter jets last weekend after a Russian MiG-29 crossed into Turkish territory near the town of Yayladagi, in Hatay province,...

How about another one?  More subtle maybe; this one from 2011: This week’s biggest Africa news isn’t from Africa. It’s from a massive online and social media campaign launched by the American advocacy group Invisible Children to...

    The father of a Syrian toddler whose body washed up on a Turkish beach says his boys "slipped away" from his hands after their rowboat capsized trying to reach the Greek island of Kos from Turkey with several other refugees. "I was holding my wife's hand, my children slipped away from my hands," Abdullah Kurdi said in a statement to police obtained by the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet. "We tried to hold on to the boat. Everyone was screaming in pitch darkness. I couldn't make my voice heard to my wife and kids." The death of Kurdi's three-year-old son, Alan, who...

    A new United Nations report says Gaza could be uninhabitable in less than five years if current economic trends continue. The report released Tuesday by the U.N. Conference on Trade and Development points to the eight years of economic blockade of Gaza as well as the three wars between Israel and the Palestinians there over the past six years. Last years war displaced half a million people and left parts of Gaza destroyed. The war has effectively eliminated what was left of the middle class, sending almost all of the population into destitution and dependence on international humanitarian aid, the...

    Submerged countries, abandoned cities and floods of refugees await the world barring urgent action on climate change, President Barack Obama warned Monday, painting a doomsday scenario as he opened a historic visit to Alaska. In a bid to further his environmental legacy, Obama brought the power of the presidential pulpit to Anchorage and called on other nations to take swift action as negotiations for a global climate treaty near a close. His speech to an Arctic climate summit set the tone for a three-day tour of Alaska that will put the states liquefying glaciers and sinking villages on graphic display....

    A small group of eight officials in the European External Action Service will engage in efforts to respond to massive Russian propaganda directed both at the home and international audiences.

No budget has been allocated and several of the task force members are detached national experts, paid by their countries. Meeting on 19-20 March, EU leaders gave High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini three months to work out how to...

    This week I would like to spotlight the approaching political arena. Regardless of your political orientation, all of us are about to hear more and more about the stuff we get and the stuff we should fearand our vote may be the deciding factor. Fear Mongers We will hear fear mongers warn of dooms day events if we fail to elect certain candidates, and we will hear of a cornucopia of freebies and other gifts that we might receive if we but vote the right way. Unfortunately, politics today is often about the best liar, and that usually turns out...

    The last few weeks I've noticed a new fad or trend in the media and that's reporting on the 'dangers' of so-called drones (which are actually just RC helicopters). In each case there's been some sort of breathtaking disaster that *almost* happened or else a disaster was blamed on a drone. Like the fire in California that burned so fast it overtook traffic on an Interstate highway and a bunch of cars were burned. So the fire burned so fast that cars going 70mph couldn't get away but someone had the time to unpack, set up, and fly a drone...
