    Catholic Culture ^ | October 31, 2016
    The Vatican and the Chinese government are close to an agreement that would allow for the appointment of new Catholic bishops recognized by both parties, the Wall Street Journal reports. According to the Wall Street Journal account, negotiations have yielded a compromise agreement, which has been submitted to Pope Francis for his approval. The accord would also require approval from top officials in Beijing. The Journal story essentially supports an earlier report from the Reuters news agency, which said that negotiators were nearing an agreement. Both stories said that under the proposed agreement, the Vatican would recognize eight bishops who...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders will back Hillary Clinton in exchange for speaking opportunities at fall campaign rallies, a fully-funded campaign aircraft and a share of the credit for her hoped-for election, according to a negotiating memo obtained by BuzzFeed News and dated two days before the June 7 California primary. “Request a plane and staff for a series of fall rallies in battleground states … plane would be paid for by the DNC,” according the the Sanders memo, titled “End Game 2016” and addressed to “Bernie 2016.” The memo’s authenticity has not been confirmed by Breitbart News, but it has not...

    The big question for Cruz is whether this baton pass does more damage than good among anti-establishment voters, even if it does boost movement conservatives. Newsmax’s Nick Sanchez believes that Jeb’s conservative track record in Florida will buffer the downside, and giving Cruz and the Tea Party access to the “establishment” donor base will pay dividends as well: 3. The Bush family has a national network of supporters — Money alone cannot win an election, and — as Cruz demonstrated right off the bat in the Iowa caucus — tapping into the network of bottom-up grassroots organizing can often ensure...

    What's the best way for a country like China to exert its influence over the U.S. economy? Acquire American-owned companies like Chinese-owned Haier just did when they purchased General Electric’s (GE) appliance business for $5.4 billion. So much for American independence and authentic Independence Day celebrations on July 4th. America can no longer claim to be an independent nation when our manufacturing base is under foreign ownership or foreign control. After all, ownership equals control, and control equals sovereignty. We lose our sovereignty as a nation when foreign companies buy our land, factories, and companies.

What else explains the lackluster, uninspiring, and I would suggest, “sell-out your base” agenda of GOP congressional leadership? For example, the Senate GOP sold out its base on the issue of Common Core this week...... That’s right, despite the fact Congress passed a Budget Control...

Marco Rubio (R-FL)79% told a nationwide audience in Wednesday’s CNBC Republican presidential debate that companies are importing foreign graduates because American college grads just can’t do the work. The claim came when CNBC’s John Hardwood asked Rubio if he was undercutting American professionals by supporting a bill to let companies import more foreign temporary H-1B “guest workers” for white-collar jobs. Rubio evaded the question by blaming Americans’ supposed lack of skills. “We need to get back to training people in this country to do the jobs of the 21st century… The best way to close this gap is to...

    Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker, author of the treasonous Corker – Cardin bill to facilitate President Obama’s nuclear weapons treaty with Islamist Iran, has made another inexplicable betrayal of American military superiority and indeed the future of America itself. The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, which Corker authored, requires the Administration transmit to Congress all documents related to the JCPOA —including side agreements—prior to a 60-day review period and subsequent vote. There’s no doubt that Obama has not complied with the terms of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, indeed Senator Corker said “there’s no question that two of the...

    RINO Hugh Hewitt put the big question to Marco Rubio that conservatives are voraciously debating at the moment – does he support efforts to repeal the Fourteenth Amendment as it’s been understood for decades? RINO Rubio follows many other GOP candidates’ response which is that if we simply enforce the laws as they stand now, we don’t need to change birthright citizenship. But repealing it by repeal or statute is a terribly popular idea among the conservative base, and his numbers are slipping, so it may be an existential question for him. And he answered in the negative.

    The windfall to Iran from the lifting of sanctions comes to $700 billion according to Israeli government sources cited by former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren. Instead of blocking Iran’s path to nuclear weaponry, the deal, in fact, provides two paths. Under its terms, Iran could develop advanced centrifuges capable of enriching uranium at 20 times the current rate. By repeatedly exploiting the 24-day head start that the deal affords Iran before it has to let international inspectors visit a suspected site, the ayatollahs could cheat and make a bomb well within the deal’s 10-year time...

    By abandoning virtually all its demands for serious restrictions on Iran's nuclear bomb program, the Obama administration has apparently achieved the semblance of a preliminary introduction to the beginning of a tentative framework for a possible hope of an eventual agreement with Iran. But even this hazy "achievement" may vanish like a mirage. It takes two to agree — and Iran has already publicly disputed and even mocked what President Obama says is the nature of that framework. Had Iran wholeheartedly agreed with everything the Obama administration said, that agreement would still have been worthless, since Iran has already blocked...

    After repeatedly bashing senators like Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) over their crusade to defund Obamacare, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called for the “total repeal” of the Affordable Care Act on Wednesday. It’s a stunning turnaround after the longtime senator in September proclaimed that it was “not rational” to think Obamacare could be defunded or repealed. McCain then laid out his “solution,” which culminated in an admission that he is now calling for “total repeal.”

    U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander is inviting his supporters to the Airport Hilton on Monday morning to have breakfast with U.S. Sen. John McCain. If you make the 7:30 a.m. event and want a shake and howdy and a photo it’s $2,500. If you just want breakfast with the Arizona senator it’s $500. Alexander told supporters in an e-mail that he needs money to withstand a primary challenge from Washington groups with a history of defeating Republicans in a primary and losing the general election to “Harry Reid and the Democrats.” Alexander said he needs to be ready if the Washington...
  • Ousting pro-amnesty Red-State RINOs (Graham, Alexander, Rubio, Hatch, McCain): Primaries Priority

    A reminder that as primary season rolls in, our Priority #1 must be to replace the abominations of pro-amnesty RINOs in Red States with actual conservatives-- having an Obama-bootlicking liberal like Lindsey Graham in a state as solidly conservative as South Carolina, or a spineless wimp like Lamar Alexander in a reliably Red State like Tennessee (both of whom backed that traitorous, Constitution-shredding immigration bill earlier this summer), is even worse than dealing with a Democratic Senator. The Democrats could never win a Senate seat in such solidly Red States after all, so these are essential power bases for us...
  • Beck Shreds McCain for Obamacare Repeal Flip-Flop: ‘Lousy,’ Opportunistic ‘Dirtbag Weasel’

    Senator John McCain now favors complete repeal of Obamacare, after months of rejecting it as “not rational” and a “false premise” by Senate Republicans. This flip-flop really set off Glenn Beck, who went into a lengthy diatribe Thursday against “the lousy senator from Arizona,” who he called either a “dirtbag weasel” or a “weasel dirtbag.” Beck relentlessly mocked the “mavericky maverick” for trashing people like Ted Cruz when they wanted complete repeal, only to turn around and embrace it when the political winds shifted. Beck asked, “He’s not a wacko bird saying we should repeal this thing, is he?” He...
  • John McCain Goes Off His Meds

    Crazy uncle John is now claiming that people want him to run for President again. Earth to John McCain, Democrats don't count... (Town Hall) It was just a few short months ago when McCain was saying he didn't want to be "that guy" who would never shove off and out of the Senate. McCain is 77-years-old and has been in Washington since 1982. Clearly McCain's tune has changed as he gets ready to run again for the Senate in 2016. Going back to the article, I'm not sure what's more nauseating, McCain saying people are telling him to run for...

    John McCain goes off about U.S. foreign policy under ObamaWhen it comes to foreign policy, the Obama administration is really mucking things up. At least that is how Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., sees it. For a guy who went head-to-head against Obama in the 2008 presidential election, it's been tough to sit back and watch the president bungle diplomatic relations in his second term. From Egypt to Iran, McCain singled out Secretary of State John Kerry, the former Massachusetts senator with whom he served, as the major liability. "This guy has been a human wrecking ball," McCain said during the...

    All the talk about repealing and replacing Obamacare is now apparently going to be backed up with potentially substantive legislation that  will be spearheaded by Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) During an appearance on Fox News’ with Megyn Kelly, Cruz stated that he was going to release a plan to repeal Obamacare, and give Americans more healthcare coverage options.  Cruz, as well Senators Mike Lee and Marco Rubio, have been at the forefront of the ‘Repeal Obamacare’ movement, for which they had been excoriated for doing so, by Senate moderate John McCain, and others. Some say that the time is...

    Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has hired a new expert on immigration policy, a move that could signal a renewed House effort to act on the issue in 2014. Rebecca Tallent, director of immigration policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center, will start her new job as assistant to the Speaker on Wednesday. Her arrival was one of a series of personnel moves Boehner announced on Tuesday. Former Gov. Haley Barbour (R-Miss.), a co-chairman of the think tank’s immigration task force, said Boehner’s decision to bring in Tallent was “affirmation of his strong desire to move legislation in 2014.”

    Key senators yesterday announced that they will introduce a broad immigration overhaul with a multistep path to citizenship for illegal aliens and a new program for foreign workers that could increase yearly legal immigration by 400,000 people. The bill — sponsored by Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat — also calls for the government to produce a border security strategy, and encourages Mexico to crack down on immigrant smugglers and take steps to control its own borders. Sponsors said it is not an amnesty because it would require illegal aliens to pay all regular...
