    In yet another example of California’s decline under Democratic leadership, two men were caught on film casually walking out of a suburban Los Angeles TJ Maxx store while carrying armfulls of merchandise – just seven months after LA District Attorney George Gascón announced his office would no longer prosecute misdemeanor crimes such as shoplifting. Thanks to Prop 47 thefts under $950 will not be prosecuted, so cops will not bother showing up. Just a reminder that you get what you voted for, California! pic.twitter.com/jWUPdJzy0A — Adam Carolla (@adamcarolla) July 20, 2021 The incident occurred at the TJ Maxx in Granada...

    Great Britain’s women’s soccer team has taken the knee before their Tokyo 2020 Olympic soccer match against Chile, the first time the protest to highlight racial injustice has been performed at the Games. The women’s team had previously confirmed that it would be taking the knee before its matches in Tokyo after England’s men’s soccer team also did before every game at the Euro 2020 competition this summer. Chile’s players responded by also taking the knee in the Sapporo Dome in Japan’s capital, which is being played without fans in attendance as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. […] New...

    Alabama quarterback Bryce Young has already made almost $1 million in sponsorship and endorsement money, according to Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban, Yahoo Sports has reported. Saban’s statement comes as college athletes nationwide have been permitted since July 1 to make money off their name and image rights after the NCAA rescinded its restrictive rules limiting the rights of athletes due to state laws superseding NCAA rules. Saban made his comments at the Texas High School Coaches Association convention, saying that Young “already has approached ungodly numbers. I’m not going to say what they are. He hasn’t even played yet....

    The story of the young Russian Orthodox boy who was repeatedly beaten by Muslim children at a summer camp in Kyrgyzstan caused an outcry in both Russia and Kyrgyzstan. After the story became known, His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia wrote a letter to the boy and his family to commend him for his strength of faith and to invite him to Moscow. The Patriarch wrote: I learned with great concern about the incident that happened to you at the sports camp. I would like to express to you my sincere sympathy.Having shown fortitude and courage, you...

Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) announced they accepted the resignation of Harsha Walia, who served as its executive director.

    By Annie Linskey , Dan Diamond , Tyler Pager and Lena H. Sun Today at 8:03 p.m. EDT Top White House aides and Biden administration officials are debating whether they should urge vaccinated Americans to wear masks in more settings as the delta variant causes spikes in coronavirus infections across the country, according to six people familiar with the discussions. The talks are in a preliminary phase and their result could be as simple as new messaging from top White House officials. But some of the talks include officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who are separately...

With Wednesday’s tally, county health officials report that cases have increased twentyfold over the last month.

    The prospect of private parties using national security-style surveillance technology to track the movements and activities of bishops, priests, and other Church personnel is raising concerns about civil liberties, privacy rights and what means are ethical to use in Church reform efforts. The issue was first raised in 2018, when a person concerned with reforming the Catholic clergy approached some Church individuals and organizations, including Catholic News Agency. This party claimed to have access to technology capable of identifying clergy and others who download popular “hook-up” apps, such as Grindr and Tinder, and to pinpoint their locations using the internet...

    It controls the greatest nuclear weapons arsenal, in the world — a total of 6,185 nuclear warheads. From this hand-carried black leather satchel, comes armageddon … the end of everything, as you and I know it. According to a report by Oriana Pawlyk at Military.com, during the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol, then-Vice President Mike Pence and his Secret Service team were seen on security camera footage fleeing down a flight of stairs as rioters broke into the building. Also seen, was a military officer holding the backup “Nuclear Football” (the President also has one) accompanied the vice...

The first vaccines to reach the general public from Pfizer and Moderna truly changed the tide of the pandemic in the U.S.—they gave us hope and a sense of something approaching normal.</p>
  • Monsignor Pope on theTLM Edict

    07/21/2021 6:55:54 PM PDT · by STJPII · 7 replies
    Pope Francis has seldom addressed any other group this harshly. To others such as unbelievers, dissenters and wayward politicians there is to be mercy, understanding and tolerance. He speaks of “going to the margins” and of compassion for the poor and morally lost. But to those attached to the Latin Mass comes this strong rebuke, with almost no room to maneuver in the Church they love. It is very shocking and saddening to me as a pastor of souls that such vitriol be directed at the flock I have long cared for.

    Vice President Kamala Harris told a reporter from the San Francisco Chronicle Wednesday that she is planning to campaign for California Gov. Gavin Newsom ahead of his recall election this fall. Why it matters: Harris' support in the campaign would be a "significant step" from Democratic Party leaders to aid Newsom in the recall fight and could also prove to be a "strong fundraising draw," per the Chronicle. State of play: Newsom's recall election is set for Sept. 14 and will be the second time in California history that a gubernatorial recall campaign has succeeded in getting on the ballot....

    In the current political climate, arguing against free college and student-loan cancellation doesn’t make you very popular among a particular crowd.But one thing that’s clear is that many people are upset about loans but don’t know how they work. Multiple misconceptions surround student debt and college finance that make people more upset than they need to be, which can lead to poor decision-making when it comes to education or finances.So let’s clear up a few things.Student debt isn’t an inescapable life sentence.The political discourse surrounding student debt would have you believe that unaffordable student loans are inescapable, but that’s pretty...

    Under the Biden administration the US continued escalating the economic and geopolitical frictions with China. At the recent G7 Summit in Carbis Bay, President Biden sought to rally a “united front” against China with traditional G7 allies and new ones such as Australia, India, South Korea, and South Africa and rebuked China on economic policies, human rights, and tensions in the East and South China Seas. The US also persuaded its G7 allies to back a massive infrastructure support package for developing countries. The so-called Build Back Better World Partnership (B3W) is a de facto rival to China’s Belt and...

    Dr. Li-meng Yan has made her rounds across international media. Most won’t interview her; CNN and MSNBC pretend she doesn’t exist. But in the last year she has appeared on Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s show, several podcasts, and a handful of international shows. Despite all this, she has had a hard time getting an audience with American politicians.Congressman Mo Brooks changed that. He met with Dr. Li-meng Yan and was so impressed, he released a statement condemning the Chinese Communist Party and accusing them of having “NEGLIGENTLY, RECKLESSLY OR INTENTIONALLY RELEASED COVID-19” (yes, in all caps).Most of our readers...

    Having captured key districts and border posts with Iran, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, the Taliban are now hunting for women in these areas. “All imams and mullahs in captured areas should provide the Taliban with a list of girls above 15 and widows under 45 to be married to Taliban fighters,” read a letter issued in the name of the Taliban’s Cultural Commission for Islamic preachers in the region. The Taliban has promised to marry these women to their fighters and take them to Pakistan’s Waziristan. There, these women will be converted to Islam and reintegrated. Is anyone talking about...

    PORTLAND, Ore. — No state is more emblematic of deepening political and cultural divisions in America than Oregon, where a movement is underway in the state’s more conservative southern and eastern counties to break away from the radically leftist urban centers in the northwest and become part of an enlarged Idaho.Such efforts have been around for decades as divisions sizzled under the surface. Each side sees the other with a growing contempt, as leftists in the state capitol, Salem, rule with a legislative supermajority and, increasingly, no regard for their neighbors in largely rural eastern Oregon. In that part of...
  • GOP RINOs Are Getting Primary Challengers and the Media Seems Upset

    Republican U.S. Sen. James Lankford would seem to have all the conservative credentials he'd need to coast to re-election in deep-red Oklahoma. A devout Baptist, Lankford was the director of the nation’s largest Christian youth camp for more than a decade. He speaks out regularly against abortion and what he describes as excessive government spending. And his voting record in the Senate aligned with former President Donald Trump’s position nearly 90% of the time. But like several other seemingly safe GOP incumbents, Lankford, who didn't even draw a primary opponent in 2016, finds himself under fierce attack by a challenger...
