    September 14, 2017 Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross Reading 1 Nm 21:4b-9With their patience worn out by the journey,the people complained against God and Moses,"Why have you brought us up from Egypt to die in this desert,where there is no food or water?We are disgusted with this wretched food!" In punishment the LORD sent among the people saraph serpents,which bit the people so that many of them died.Then the people came to Moses and said,"We have sinned in complaining against the LORD and you.Pray the LORD to take the serpents from us."So Moses prayed for the...

    Over the past few weeks a number of things have been revealed about Antifa groups, people that use fascist methods to suppress any opinion or speech that does not conform to their own ideology, yet call themselves “anti-fascist.” After the tragic events in Charlottesville, VA, Antifa massively overplayed their hand in a subsequent event in Berkeley California, where viral images finally exposed what the MSM had been trying to hide, that so-called Antifa groups were inciting violence with planned events, then dressing up in black, with masks, carrying sticks, clubs and mace, and proceeded to instigate violence against peaceful rally...

    President Donald Trump’s wish that Congress pass amnesty to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) beneficiaries could end up putting nearly 2 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship. Trump announced that the DACA amnesty program will be rescinded in March 2018 in order to give Congress time to “legalize” the program that protects roughly 800,000 illegal immigrants.

    President Donald Trump has blocked a Chinese government-financed firm’s acquisition of an Oregon semiconductor maker on national security grounds. Trump’s order Wednesday came after a federal panel that reviews foreign investment for possible security threats ruled against the proposed $1.3 billion takeover of Lattice Semiconductor last week. The deal has been under scrutiny since it became clear the buyer, Canyon Bridge Capital Partners, is funded by the Chinese government. …

    Secretary-General António Guterres said Wednesday he has been trying to build “a constructive relationship” with President Donald Trump — and he hopes that will be the U.S. leader’s message when they meet during next week’s gathering of world leaders at the United Nations. Guterres said at a news conference if that is what Trump conveys to him “that message will be well received.” Trump wants major cuts to the U.N. budget and significant changes to the world organization. Guterres and Trump are scheduled to speak at a meeting on reforming the United Nations sponsored by the United States on Monday,...

    KOBANI, Syria – Talking with American special operators as we walk in the summer heat through the sprawling training facilities of the Syrian Arab Coalition, one sentiment is immediately obvious: relief. It is not that these elite American troops are relaxed about the mission; it is that they make clear they think it’s working and see that the end is achievable. And for those of us who have written about and covered the post-9/11 wars, that is indeed a shift. “My military guidance is clear; what we are trying to do here in terms of the campaign against Daesh is...

    Red Greater Double “THROUGH thee the precious Cross is honored and worshiped throughout the world.” Thus did St. Cyril of Alexandria apostrophize our Lady on the morrow of that great day, which saw her divine maternity vindicated at Ephesus. Eternal Wisdom has willed that the Octave of Mary’s birth should be honored by the celebration of this Feast of the triumph of the holy Cross. The Cross indeed is the standard of God’s armies, whereof Mary is the Queen; it is by the Cross that she crushes the serpent’s head, and wins so many victories over error, and over...

    Denny’s is best known for their signature Grand Slam breakfasts, but that may have just changed... All eyes are on their fairly new, not so appetizing mascot-type thing that a lot of people think bears a striking resemblance to feces.Denny's was probably aiming for a friendly sausage as their mascot, but at best we have a face that seems more like it's welcoming us to the bathroom than a restaurant — and some people are straight up calling it a "turd."

    I don't know Joey. He does mostly comedy/pranks. But some of his videos are political, such as exposing the AntiFa as he goes undercover, along with other videos which show the violence of BLM against All Lives Matter, etc. Some of his videos may be staged, but these I think are not. If you read the comments, the Left is giving thumbs down and trying to ban him, but he is an extremely popular YouTuber and the Right should support him.

    BMT Defence bid for the Royal Navy Type 31E Frigate LONDON — The Royal Navy’s planned Type-31e light frigate will transform the dismal export record of U.K.-based shipbuilders, a senior government minister told attendees at the DSEI exhibition in London. U.K. defense secretary Sir Michael Fallon said that Britain’s shipyards have not built a frigate for another country since the 1970s. “We’re changing all that”, he declared in a keynote speech on Wednesday. “This frigate will rock the exports boat and it’s a model for the way we will approach shipbuilding in future.” The U.S. Navy is among potential overseas...

    Former President Barack Obama announced Wednesday that he plans to invite civic leaders to Chicago next month to exchange ideas and plan ways to solve some of the world’s common problems. The inaugural Obama Foundation leadership summit “will be a place to gather and learn from one another, and then go back to your communities to lead others in the hard work of change,” Obama said in a video and email released to supporters. The former president said he expects the summit, which will be Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, to bring hundreds of leaders from around the world. The...

    SOUTH Korea has tested an advanced cruise missile that could wipe out Kim Jong-un from 300 miles away as the North Korean nuke crisis intensifies. The show of force prompted North Korea’s ruling party to threaten Seoul and the US with “miserable destruction”.

    The university that has proudly proclaimed itself to be the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement may also become its graveyard. "In a letter addressed to the UC Berkeley campus and the larger Berkeley community, 76 faculty members from various departments have called for a complete boycott of classes and campus activities during the so-called 'Free Speech Week' to be held on campus September 24-27," Hank Reichman writes in the Academe blog maintained by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). "The week is sponsored by the Berkeley Patriot, a conservative student newspaper, and includes 'Feminism Awareness Day' and a...

    Once again the Syrian Air War is the testbed for the most recent Russian Air Force weapons system. This time is the turn of the MiG-29SMT. The Russian Air Force has deployed some MiG-29SMT multirole combat aircraft to Hmeymim airbase, near Latakia, in western Syria, the Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed on Sept. 13, 2017. It’s the first time the modernized version of the baseline Fulcrum jet is deployed to take part in the Syrian Air War. The MiG-29SMT is an upgraded variant of the MiG-29 featuring a big 950-litre spine CFT (Conformal Fuel Tank) and an in-flight refueling system...
