    The Political Pope: How Pope Francis is Delighting the Liberal Left and Abandoning Conservatives With all the controversy that surrounded the election of Pope Francis upon the resignation of Pope Benedict in 2013, it seems that Catholics may have lost sight of a very key element of this episode, namely, that Benedict XVI never resigned his papal office, but only the active exercise thereof. On the eve of his resignation, he said: “Anyone who accepts the Petrine ministry no longer has any privacy. He belongs always and completely to everyone, to the whole Church… “The ‘always’ is also a “forever”—there...

    Does Joe Scarborough of MSNBC watch rival CNN? The question arises because this morning, one wonders whether Joe had tuned into the CNN segment we blogged Said Scarborough on today's Morning Joe: "this weekend, there seemed to be a turn where a lot of people . . . have started to talk about impeachment and have started to talk about okay, maybe he's going to resign now, and have started to talk about like that Donald Trump is going to leave town." But Scarborough wasn't buying: "he's not going anywhere, Mark [Halperin], is he?" Scarborough ended the discussion by repeating...

Every tweet Schwartz sent Wednesday was about Trump. "Think of Trump as a toddler w/reactive attachment disorder, and therefore in a permanent virulent tantrum. His development ended...

    Donald Trump would resign before Congress is able impeach him, a senior US representative has said, as pressure mounts over his team's alleged links to Russia. Jackie Speier, who sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said attempts by the President to pardon members of his family or fire the man appointed to investigate Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election could trigger an impeachment vote. “I have always thought that he was never going to fulfil his full term,” she said. “I am more convinced that he will leave before any impeachment would take place.”

"This was the last straw," said a source close to Spicer. The objection of the press secretary and his allies was that Scaramucci would hold the title, while Spicer would be expect to continue to carry out many of the duties related to strategy and planning. "Sean was going to be expected to serve as press secretary while also being the quasi-comms director," the source said. After the Oval Office...
