  • Liberals Aghast: ‘Shockingly’ Few U.S. Catholics Support Pope Francis on Climate Change

    ROME — Progressive Catholics are rending their seamless garments over poll results showing that a “shockingly low” number of U.S. Catholics support Pope Francis’s radical take on global warming. “Ahead of the release of Laudato Deum [the pope’s new climate encyclical], shockingly low numbers of American Catholic[s] support @pontifex on climate. Formation on this should be a priority for bishops,” writes Stephen Schneck, who served as national co-chair of Catholics for Biden in 2020. Schneck is also on the Board of Directors for Catholic Climate Covenant and was previously a board member for Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good,...

    Patriot Post ^ | SEPTEMBER 28, 2023 | MICHAEL BARONE
    The signs are all around. Governments from coastal America to Communist China and businesses from automakers to toymakers have promised that they will produce no net carbon emissions by some date conveniently far in the future. But as years have gone on, those dates have come to seem inconveniently near. Something has to give. Political scientist Francis Fukuyama has described the process of improving societies — making them more politically democratic, economically advanced and culturally tolerant — as “getting to Denmark.” And in fact, Denmark, though far from perfect, has done a better job of getting there than just about...

    Democrats Have Become The Party Of Authoritarianism. They Only Understand PowerThe left isn’t bothered by blatant hypocrisy and injustice. So long as they have power, they’re fine with it.Perhaps you saw the news last week that two women in their 70s, Jean Marshall and Joan Bell, are each facing up to 11 years in federal prison for blocking the entrance to an abortion clinic in 2020. Federal prosecutors charged the pair for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, which Biden’s Justice Department has been aggressively enforcing against pro-life activists, convicting 26 people last year alone.You might...
  • World Leaders Adopt Sweeping Political Declaration Reaffirming Commitment to Achieve Sustainable Development Goals, as Summit Commences

    Kicking off the second half of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, world leaders at the SDG Summit 2023 today adopted a sweeping Political Declaration to reaffirm their shared commitment to end poverty and hunger everywhere, combat inequalities within and among countries and build peaceful societies that leave no one behind. The adoption of the 10-page document, by the Heads of State and Government and high representatives gathering at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, came at a critical juncture as global crises — including armed conflict, adverse climate impacts and the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic —...

    For just over two and a half years, Joe Biden and/or his puppet masters (see Barack Obama, Susan Price, Klaus Schwab, etc.) have been successfully driving the United States to destruction. The plan took a four-year detour when President Trump was at the helm. Now, thanks to what many believe was a stolen election, the plan to enslave our comfy pants-clad bottoms is back on. The commies began the operation decades ago. As Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov warned, the college professors and civil rights leaders indoctrinated — or as Bezmenov calls it, demoralized — generations of Americans and convinced them...

    Work together. Go it alone. The apocalypse is at hand. But the future can be bright. The squabbles never cease, yet here are human beings from all across the world — hashing out conflicts with words and processes, convening under one roof, trying to write the next chapter of a common dream. At the United Nations, “multilateralism” is always the goal. Yet so is the quest for a coherent storyline that unites all 193 member states and their ideas. Those two holy grails often find themselves at odds when leaders gather each September at the United Nations — a construct...
  • Controversial Appointments Raise Concerns: Former Intelligence Officials Join DHS Group Despite Election Disinformation

    09/20/2023 6:06:49 PM PDT · by davikkm · 9 replies
    In a surprising development, the Biden administration has appointed James Clapper, John Brennan, and Paul Kolbe, all former intelligence officials, to a DHS “Homeland Intelligence Experts Group” responsible for addressing critical national security matters. This decision has raised eyebrows and concerns due to the history of these individuals. It’s worth noting that Clapper, Brennan, and Kolbe were signatories of the controversial October 2020 letter that made deceptive claims about Hunter Biden’s laptop, suggesting it might be Russian disinformation. This false assertion had significant ramifications, particularly in the tightly contested 2020 election, where the outcomes in Georgia, Arizona, and Wisconsin were...

    Looking at the big picture, the two things that corrupt ruling elites want to see TERMINATED are the Constitution and God Himself The U.S. government was never meant to be an all-inclusive entity involved in almost every aspect of our lives, the way it is today. So how did we get to this point and what areas of our lives need to be taken back from the illegitimate claims of government in order for us to be able to say we live in a truly free country?

  • Markey, Ocasio-Cortez ask Biden to create Civilian Climate Corps by executive order

    The Hill ^ | 09/18/2023 | ZACK BUDRYK
    Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), two of Congress’ most vocal proponents for aggressive climate action, on Monday called for President Biden to establish a Civilian Climate Corps. The CCC had been a key element in early versions of the Build Back Better Act, the sweeping environmental and infrastructure bill. It was not ultimately included in the slimmed down Inflation Reduction Act, which was nonetheless the largest climate bill in U.S. history. Biden was a vocal backer of the Climate Corps early in his presidency, comparing it to the Civilian Conservation Corps introduced during the presidency of...

    As the Democrats expand their attacks from Trump to his advisors and, now, to anyone who dares to support him or traditional values, speech dies in America. Following his historic federal indictment, Donald Trump correctly observed, “In reality, they’re not after me, they’re after you. I’m just in the way.” Indeed, as the Democrat/Federal/Media cabal proceeds with its blatant lawlessness, banana republic indictments, frog march arrests, and kangaroo show trials, its members argue that all of this is both by the book and quite necessary—prompted by things like unprecedented, dangerous, and horrendous threats from MAGA extremists, white supremacists, terrorists, anthropogenic...

    The Pipeline ^ | 11 Sep 2023 | Michael Walsh
    Everybody knows Benjamin Franklin's famous riposte when asked after the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia which type of government the Founders had come up with: "A republic, if you can keep it." The constitution that emerged from the conclave went into effect the following year, and ever since Americans have at least paid lip service both to the document itself and the principles enshrined within. Until now. From the moment Joe Biden -- infirm, incontinent, mentally challenged (even in the best of times), crotchety, cranky, boastful, and mendacious, a lifelong pig sucking at the teat of government -- took office...

    Many readers are under the impression that they have a choice in next year’s presidential election. Allow me to disabuse them of this false notion. Alvin Bragg, Jack Smith and Fani Willis took away the right of Republicans to choose a presidential candidate by indicting President Donald John Trump. Because the charges are bogus, we must re-elect him or government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall perish from the earth. The indictments are a heinous act that rubs our noses in the filth, garbage and sewage of a power-mad central government that now exceeds the worst...

    The Biden administration is considering forcing migrants who cross into the United States illegally to remain in Texas while they wait out their asylum screening. Administration officials cite the proposed plan as a way to curb the flow of illegal immigrants at the southern border, The Los Angeles Times reported, citing three U.S. officials not authorized to discuss the matter. The plan would force migrants to remain in Texas, or possibly other border states by tracking their location through GPS monitoring devices, such as ankle bracelets, the officials told the Times.

    The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has purportedly partnered with AI tech firm Fivecast to deploy social media surveillance software that, according to its proprietor, can detect “problematic” emotions of social media users and subsequently report them to law enforcement for further action. According to a post on, “Outlet 404, through FOIA requests, uncovered various Fivecast marketing documents elaborating on its software’s utility for law enforcement.” 404’s report on said documents stated: Customs and Border Protection (CBP), part of the Department of Homeland Security, has bought millions of...

    U.S District Court Judge Amit Mehta admitted he continues to “struggle with” what happened on January 6. The Obama appointee made that public confession Wednesday afternoon during the sentencing hearing for Florida resident Connie Meggs. A D.C. jury convicted Meggs, 61, of numerous offenses including obstruction of an official proceeding and interfering with law enforcement related to her conduct on January 6. Meggs traveled to the nation’s capital with her husband, Kelly, a member of the Oath Keepers who is currently serving 12 years in prison for his role in January 6. (Mehta imposed that sentence in May.) She spent...

Dave agrees with folks like Alan Sabrosky that the nihilists of what passes for the left are far more extreme and dangerous than Trump’s deplorables and J6ers. He also agrees with “Doc” Sabrosky that the US is inching toward civil war.

    American Thinker ^ | 08/30/2023 | Greg Salsbury
    The first Republican debate was a disappointing disaster—for the candidates and America. Not one of the questions addressed the elephant in the room. In fact, the list of questions selected by Fox News, which likely received enthusiastic approval from the Democrat Party, helped highlight the elephant. Candidates were asked about a viral blue grass song, inflation, Ukraine, China, Israel, and other foreign relations issues, crime, energy, the border, climate change, abortion, and more. But as important as these things are, they pale by comparison to the single most important issue, the one posing the greatest threat to our Republic since...

    Free Beacon ^ | August 29, 2023 | Meghan Blonder
    A consultant for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D., Mich.) used a coded message in a "calculated" effort to "conceal" from the public record sensitive communications regarding the administration's response to a local water crisis in Michigan, according to a lawsuit. Michigan energy department consultant Andy Leavitt in September 2021 emailed a top adviser to Whitmer to express "some major red flags" with the administration's response to a lead water crisis in southwestern Michigan, which Leavitt compared to a similar crisis in Flint, Michigan. But Leavitt's initial message was not written in English—the consultant used letters in the Greek alphabet in place...

    In the summer of 2022, a group of scientists and professionals connected to the study of the climate started seeking signatures on a document that states that there is no climate emergency. Climate change supporters quickly started saying the document is “anti-science,” “the work of uninformed people,” “untruthful,” and things like that. On Aug. 16, 2023, The New American reported that now more than 1,600 scientists and professionals, including two Nobel Prize winners and experts from MIT, Princeton, and other notable institutions around the world, have signed the document. Some of the things in the document these universally recognized men...
