  • St. of the Day - Giuseppina Margherita Fortunata - Saint Josephine Bakhita - St. Lucky

    Catholics for Life, Sacramento ^ | 2/8/2016 | Charles O'Connell
    Saint Josephine Bakhita Giuseppina Margherita Fortunata Josephine was a twin, child of an African family of property. When she was kidnapped into slavery, Sudan wasn't a country. She saw one of her group of fellow slaves severely beaten and abandoned to die. She suffered great cruelty from Turkish owners and was viciously, ritually scarred all over her back. She became the nanny of the daughter of Italian owners. While her mistress returned to Africa, she was left with the baby girl at a convent in Italy where she became Catholic. When her mistress returned to take her and the...
  • One More Reason to Detest Quentin Tarantino

    MoonBattery ^ | February 6, 2016
    That guitar he had destroyed for his movie The Hateful Eight was made in 1870. It was on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum. Tarantino left the clip in the movie because he liked the horrified reaction of Jennifer Jason Leigh, who realized at the time that it was not a replica but a priceless antique getting smashed. Everyone on the set was distraught except Tarantino, who reportedly smiled: The head of the museum was furious when he found out the guitar had been wrecked not in a random accident, but because Tarantino had failed to tell Kurt Russell about...

We have been let down by the fake conservatives we sent to Washington to put out the fire and start fixing the damage. They have laughed in our faces.

Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, the venerable avowed socialist. “When you’re young, you’re thinking, ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie,' she said."

    Tradcons and feminists have more in common than either would care to confront. Browsing popular alt-right outposts, I’ve found that a significant number of them — not all; I don’t mean this to be a sweeping indictment of the tradcon right — share with feminists a misunderstanding of sex differences and of the functioning of the sexual market (hint: it’s transactional in nature, and sneering at the messenger won’t change that fact).

    The District of Columbia (D.C.) City Council has passed a measure that would pay people $9,000 a year to NOT commit crimes. The mafia has a word for this: extortion. Except in this case, the mafia are the potential criminals, and the neighborhood business owners are the D.C. government. Under the measure, which still has to be approved by the mayor, city officials would choose 200 people a year that they consider to be at high risk for committing or becoming a victim of a crime. ...

    AB13 is an incremental improvement that establishes a timeline for firearms owners to have their property returned. From walker.wi.gov: Assembly Bill 13 - intends to return property to owners who have been cleared of charges relating to the seizure of a firearm or ammunition. The bill creates a timeline for this process to ensure individuals will no longer be subject to long wait times for the return of their property. Authored by Representative Daniel Knodl (R - Germantown) and Senator Stephen Nass (R - Whitewater), the bill passed the Assembly on a voice vote and was concurred by the...

    By covering up and supporting Palestinian deadly aims they have the blood of innocent Israelis on their hands as they aid and abet a malevolent and murderous Palestinian agenda When people of sound minds display clear signs of deviation from reality it demands of us to examine the symptom and expose the defect. For quite some time, Israelis and others that have clear-eyed views of the world have been increasingly troubled by leading influence and opinion makers who seem to have wandered off into some unvirtuous virtual world of their own.

    Voter fraud is, for all intents and purposes, practically nonexistent. The best available research on the topic, by Loyola Law School professor Justin Levitt, found only 31 credible incidents of voter impersonation in an investigation of over 1 billion votes cast. But that hasn't dampened Republican efforts to pass a spate of strict voter ID laws since 2008. And it hasn't hurt the public's overall enthusiasm for those laws, either. But the results of a new working paper from political scientists at University of California, San Diego suggest folks may want to consider. The researchers analyzed turnout in recent elections...

In other words, more babies are...

    Gee, I thought we shouldn't vote for Ted Cruz in the Republican primary because he's an icky conservative who can't appeal to young and blue collar voters. If that's the case, why did he do better than Donald Trump and Marco Rubio with both groups? According to entrance polling, among the roughly half of all Republican voters without a college degree, Cruz won 30 percent of the vote, eclipsing Trump's 28 percent. Marco Rubio was a distant third, winning the support of just 17 percent of voters without college degrees. Cruz did 5 points better among voters without college degrees...

    Ten pupils at a secondary school in Gossau turned up for their lessons wearing an edelweiss shirt on Friday. A teacher was very unhappy at the sight of this typically Swiss clothing; he asked them to go and put something else on. According to the "SonntagsZeitung", the teacher considered that this manner of dress conveyed "racist and xenophobic" ideas. The ten pupils decided to come to school wearing peasant shirts and to sing patriotic songs to show their "pride in being Swiss". Tensions with classmates of Balkan origin are said to be at the origin of this initiative, reports the...

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a Marine veteran, and Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Minn., a retired Navy SEAL, filed the Draft American's Daughters Act to stoke debate over the military's historic move to fully integrate female troops into all combat roles. If passed, women from 18-26 years old would for the first time have to join men in registering with the Selective Service program and potentially be...

When President Trump is in office, can we look for more forward motion on equality for gays and lesbians?” Here is Trump’s...

    Is there some kind of symbolism we're missing about Obama going first to the Islamic Society of Baltimore Mosque yesterday, then today to the National Prayer Breakfast? There are two names that no one will ever hear from the lips of President Barack Obama. The name of Jesus Christ is one, Islamic terrorism the other. Yet, the same man who demanded that Georgetown cover all symbols of Christ—including his Blessed Name, the tiny IHS that would have appeared directly over his head on the podium where he would be giving a speech—got to speak at the National Prayer Breakfast in...

This launch follows on the heels of a nuclear test conducted by North Korea on January 6, 2016, and the claim by Kim Jung-Un that the bomb was a hydrogen bomb. The MSM pundits and their positivist quacking "experts" all state the bomb was not a hydrogen bomb; however, experts such as Peter V. Pry disagree.

Companies took the opportunity to showcase a number of concealed carry options designed specifically for women. Personal and home protection is a foremost reason women own firearms, according to research conducted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The NSSF survey of women who owned at least one firearm found that more than 42 percent have a concealed carry permit. Many women need a way to carry firearms that is designed for the female body – not one designed for men and simply...

However, the Washington Post recently suggested that Obama’s main legacy will be making more Republican voters. The implications will be far reaching for the course of American politics for decades to come.

    Unlike his GOP opponents, Trump stands apart from the traditional establishmentarians on the right.

On the Republican side, all the candidates talk big on amnesty and illegal immigration after they've all spent years supporting it. They all talk about the grassroots after taking million dollar checks from the right-wing donor class and Wall Street. They all blur together. Among them, only one candidate stands out.

But wait, in Cuba it’s only $25, which is a pretty big problem when a gallon of gas is almost $5. These are socialist/communist countries. They promise people all kinds of free stuff, and they impose massive taxes to pay for it. It seems like it should be fairly basic to understand that this is not the sort of system that can lead to any kind of prosperity, but judging...

    Back in January, a judge allowed federal sharpshooters to kill 100 deer over a three-month period in the controversial Ann Arbor deer cull. But that's not the story to hunters in the city and state. At issue is the attitude of U.S. District Judge Arthur Tarnow, who ruled to allow the deer cull to proceed using the sharpshooters. Tarrow, in his ruling, praised the city for using federal sharpshooters "rather than have traditional hunters with carrots and six packs of beer" reduce the herd. The story began when complaints from residents about deer disease, damage to the landscape and car-deer...

    Baton Rouge District Judge John deGravelles blocked a Louisiana law requiring that abortion facilities comply with state standards for health and safety, calling it unconstitutional. "The right to an abortion is a constitutional right decreed by the United States Supreme Court in 1973," de Gravelles ruled. "The state is not permitted to infringe on this right by adding conditions that could limit a woman's ability to abort her child." The Judge dispensed with the argument that the state has the power to set health and safety standards for medical treatments. "The contention that the lack of such standards endangers the...

    It’s a new morning in America, time to come out of the weeds, to join forces against the digital fairytale of the globalists working to bring down Western Society The lay of the land was laid bare in Iowa last night: No matter what the progressives instruct the mainstream media to say, conservatism is alive and well in battered America. Conservatives reopened the steel barred door letting through the masses, and it will be up to the masses and not the high-handed media to keep the movement going to restore America to what she was before Obama began his unsolicited...

    A survey shows that Jewish Israelis rank Barack Obama as the "worst" U.S. president in relation to Israel in the last 30 years -- 63% of Israelis put Obama in the "worst" category while 16% rated Jimmy Carter as the second "worst" president. The survey was conducted by Panels Politics in Tel Aviv, and the results were published in the Jewish Journal. [...] In a survey just before the 2012 presidential election, Panels Politics found that 47% of Jewish Israelis viewed Barack Obama as "pro-Palestinian"; 24% said "neutral"; and 21% said "pro-Israel." ...

    The left is using a successful dirty political trick to get the most unelectable candidate as their opposing nominee. In this case I believe that person to be Donald Trump. They learned this trick from the recent French Le Pen elections where they crossed party lines and voted for Le Pen's opponent. The left may be lying, cheating, diabolical thieves but they are not stupid in the ways of politics and they learn quick. They don't have to worry about ethics and honor like the right does.

    A lot of people are very afraid of Donald Trump. His success will come at their expense because power in politics is a zero sum commodity. What one side gains is always at the expense of the other. Every day we are presented with twisted and convenient definitions of conservatism from those who desperately don’t want to be on the losing side. To them, changing one’s mind and acknowledging the value of conservative positions has become a sign of insincere conservatism. They echo the liberal line about Lincoln not being so great because he, “Came late” to the idea of...

    Major retailers in the United States are shutting down hundreds of stores, and shoppers are reporting alarmingly bare shelves in many retail locations that are still open all over the country. It appears that the retail apocalypse that made so many headlines in 2015 has gone to an entirely new level as we enter 2016. As economic activity slows down and Internet retailers capture more of the market, brick and mortar retailers are cutting their losses. This is especially true in areas that are on the lower portion of the income scale. In impoverished urban centers all over the nation,...
  • Why Is Obama Flooding Small Towns In The Most Conservative Parts Of America With Refugees?

    Why are small towns in conservative states being specifically targeted for refugee resettlement? Of course the Obama administration will never publicly admit that this is happening, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what is going on. Just look at the uproar that refugee resettlement is now causing in small communities in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Kansas. The Obama administration has deemed large cities such as Washington D.C. to be “too expensive” for the refugees, and so large numbers of them are being dispersed throughout smaller communities all over the nation. If you drop a few hundred...

    And you thought politics in the United States were crazy! We've got nothing on the Scots. Due to a "legislative quirk," the Scottish parliament was forced to debate legalizing incestual relationships between consenting adults. The mandatory debate was held today due to a petition submitted by Australian Richard Morris. The Scottish parliament must consider all petitions which propose a law change.
