    Cybercast News Service ^ | July 17, 2017 | 3:22 PM EDT | Craig Bannister
    Today’s Democratic Party stands for only one thing — attacking President Donald Trump — a majority of registered voters said in a new Washington Post/ABC News poll. The poll, taken between July 10-13, asked:“Do you think the Democratic Party currently stands for something, or just stands against Trump?”While 54% of registered voters said the party stood for nothing except being “against Trump,” only 35% said the Democratic Party stood for “something,” and 11% had no opinion. Thus, 60.7% of those with an opinion said the party stood only for opposing Trump. …

    I’ve often found myself wondering about the bias I see at the Catholic News Service(CNS), which seems to gloss over many of the serious problems in the Church. Today, my friend Michael Hichborn at the Lepanto Institute has a story on CNS Director and Editor in Chief Tony Spence that may help shed some light on the bias of the USCCB’s official news and information service: Tony Spence has been the head of the Catholic News Service since 2004.  Over the last few weeks, Spence has been publishing statements on his own twitter feed, identifying him as the head of CNS, speaking...

    McALLEN, Texas (CN) - Starr County, Texas, on the Mexican border, has 3,000 more people on its voting rolls than it has citizens of voting age, a Virginia-based watchdog group claims in court.     The American Civil Rights Union sued Starr County Voter Registrar Rafael R. Montalvo on March 4 in Federal Court.     The Arlington, Va.-based ACRU was founded in 1998 as a conservative alternative to the American Civil Liberties Union, which it calls the "devil's law firm" on its website.     The ACRU supports voter ID laws, religious liberty, gun rights and what it calls a strict reading of the Constitution."The ACRU believes that...
  • Georgetown Students Drive Pro-Life Efforts Without University Support

    Georgetown University students who attended last week's March for Life in Washington, D.C., recently told The Cardinal Newman Society that student groups at the University are finding success in driving pro-life outreach and discussion on campus despite the University's lack of support for their events and activities, or for Church teaching on life issues."I think that given a campus culture that's often hostile to pro-life views, it's extremely helpful that there exists organizations like Georgetown Right to Life," Michael Khan, president of the student-run Right to Life group, told the Newman Society. "With contraceptives allowed in dorms and faculty...

    NEW YORK (CNS) -- As the first wide-release film in nearly 50 years to focus on the life of Jesus as a whole, "Son of God" (Fox) represents an epochal event for believing moviegoers. Though not the most powerful mass media treatment of its subject -- that accolade continues to belong to Franco Zeffirelli's 1977 television miniseries "Jesus of Nazareth" -- director Christopher Spencer's reverent but uneven screen version of the Gospel story ranks as a worthy revival of the Hollywood biblical epic.

    Fox News columnist rips Pope Francis, loses Catholic News Service gig Adam Shaw, an editor for the Fox News website, has been taking a lot of heat, even from some conservatives, for a rip-roaring assessment of the pope’s recent apostolic exhortation. His column is titled: “Pope Francis is the Catholic Church’s Obama – God help us,” which gives you a sense of where Shaw was coming from. But if Shaw’s Fox job is safe — hey, when Rush Limbaugh is blasting the pontiff anyone else looks tame — his other gig, as a film and video game reviewer for Catholic...

    ( – President Barack Obama called Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at about 10 p.m. on the night of the terrorist attacks on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told That was more than six hours after the attacks started, more than an hour before Tryone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed–and about the time that Clinton first released a statement linking the attacks to “inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” a reference to an anti-Muslim video on YouTube. “Like every president before him, he has a national security adviser and deputy national...

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the faithful had ready access to reliable media sources that consistently present news items and important issues truthfully and completely, while also communicating the authentic doctrine of the faith so dependably that Catholics could receive the information they relay with complete confidence? The Second Vatican Council thought so. In the Decree on the Media of Social Communications, Inter Mirifica , the Council Fathers spoke of the “inherent right of the Church to have at its disposal media as necessary or useful for the instruction of Christians, and all its efforts for the welfare of souls”...

    Banjaluka, 23 August (AKI) - Al-Qaeda is changing tactics, but is still operating disguised training camps in Bosnia, local daily Nezavisne novine alleged on Tuesday, quoting the American Cybercast News Service (CNS). Training camps that operated during the 1992-1995 Bosnian war had been closed down, but new ones have been opened under the cover of youth centres, the paper said. The new camps were operated by mujahadeen from Islamic countries with military experience, said Ivan Colman, an American expert on terrorism quoted by the paper. “They take young people to the hills and train them for Jihad,” said Colman. “Sounds...

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 1 - Scientific tests have led American intelligence agencies and government scientists to conclude with near certainty that North Korea sold processed uranium to Libya, bolstering earlier indications that the reclusive state exported sensitive fuel for atomic weapons, according to officials with access to the intelligence. The determination, which has circulated among senior government officials in recent weeks, has touched off a hunt to determine if North Korea has also sold uranium to other countries, including Iran and Syria. So far, there is no evidence that such additional transactions took place. Nonetheless, the conclusion about the uranium transfer...
