    Two American cities, San Francisco and Chicago, seem to be competing to see which one can descend farther into the dystopia of gang rule, with honest citizens held captive to anarchy in the streets, afraid to leave their homes and finding nowhere to buy life's essentials if they do venture out.

    Over the past several years, we've published numerous stories on ANP about the full descent of America's big cities being transformed into homeless hellholes and crime ridden wastelands and believe it or not, as bad as things have been, things are about to take a huge turn for the worse. As ABC News had reported in this October 16th story, there's great concern in Portland, Oregon that the city is turning into a gigantic dumpster fire after a crowd of 100 people wreaked havoc in downtown Portland, smashing storefront windows, lighting dumpsters on fire and causing at least $500,000 in...

Free-for-all looting in the major cities without consequences? Joe Biden’s policies and Biden himself diving in the polls?

    SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle’s police department is sending detectives and non-patrol officers to respond to emergency calls because of a shortage of patrol officers that union leaders fear will become worse because of COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The department on Wednesday moved to the emergency officer dispatching scenario because of the staffing crunch. KOMO reports the department has lost more than 300 officers over the past year. Nearly 300 more could face termination if they do not comply with an Oct. 18 deadline to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. “We can’t afford to lose one, that’s how desperate we are to...

At one of the shootings, a sergeant was left to process one of the crime scenes alone, police said. At another crime scene, officers needed the help of community members to block traffic while they looked for and...

    U.S. District Judge Douglas Cole issued a permanent injunction against a provision in the Biden’s Administration’s “American Rescue Plan” that bans states from cutting taxes. Cole called the ban “an unconstitutional usurpation of state sovereignty.” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen labeled the ruling “dangerous. First, tax cuts cause inflation. Neither judges nor state governments are qualified to unilaterally inflict this hardship on the country. Only the federal government has the expertise and scope of authority to do so. Second, no state has standing to challenge this law until we actually withhold federal aid. The fact is, Judge Cole has gone out...

    “Defund the police” has become a popular phrase among leftist activists, gaining momentum during a rash of Black Lives Matter protests and riots last summer following the police-custody death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020.As news of these protests spread through the media, local governments across the country quickly started acquiescing to the demand. Cities such as New York and Los Angeles significantly cut cut funding for their police departments, while Minneapolis City Council went further, introducing a measure to try and outright abolish and replace its police department.According to former Arizona police officer Brandon Tatum, author of...

    The Church of What’s Happening NextThe Vatican announced recently that the next synod of bishops will now extend over a two-year period of various “phases.” According to Cardinal Mario Grech, Secretary General of the Synod of Bishops, the hope is to turn the synod from “being an event into a process.” This worries me. The idea of a sort of “permanent synod” of bishops achieved prominence from the late Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini (which by itself should make us reach for our Catechism). Martini’s vision, apparently shared by Pope Francis, is that this type of “on-going synod” would allow for...

    Call for more ‘synodality’ is another chance for liberal activists to drive green agendaThe quest for synodality is a key theme in the teaching of Pope Francis. But the truth is that no one has a very clear understanding what 'synodality' means. And maybe that’s the point.2 June, 2021 ( — As an editor, a writer, and a reader, I cherish clarity of expression. As a Catholic, I am appalled by the abuses of language — the pretense, the confusion, the obfuscation, and even the outright deceit—that I see in many recent pronouncements from our Church leadership.Last week the Vatican...

"Many, including church leaders in this country, have...

    The Biden-Bergoglio BorderWho could forget when Papa Bergoglio opined on the vile nature of border walls! t’s an opportune time to assess the judgment and discernment of the pontiff now that America has open borders. After 3 months of the Biden Administration, it’s open season on the border—the Biden-Bergoglio Border. Joe Biden granted Pope Bergoglio’s wish of a borderless southern U.S. border. The bloody imprimatur of Jorge Bergoglio is dripping all over the Rio Grande River.Pope Francis maliciously weighed in on the 2016 Presidential election hoping to sway American Catholic votes away from Donald Trump. Was he following orders from...
