    [Catholic Caucus] Repair scandal through the healing of the EucharistPity the grocery shoppers in Buffalo, the school kids in Texas, their grieving families, and everyone now more afraid than ever of doing those simple, everyday things. You’ve got to wonder about reasons for refusing reasonable limits on gun ownership, which are inspired by the common good and offering protection from harm. We readily identify things like abortion and capital punishment as life issues, which Catholic teaching identifies as absolutely wrong under any circumstance. But protecting the earth, our common home, or making food, water, shelter, education and health care accessible,...

    It all comes back to Biden’s brutal bungling of the Afghanistan pull-out, including the emptying of the prison at Bagram.History is teaching us a lesson in real-time. Under one party’s administration, violent jihadis are running scared. Under the other one, they flourish.

    After a quiet January that saw one horror sequel and the same holiday releases putter out over several weeks, the domestic box office finally has a new leader. Paramount Pictures’ “Jackass Forever” is projected to earn $20.7 million in its opening, stunting on the weekend’s other wide release, “Moonfall.” “Jackass Forever” earned $9.6 million on Friday across 3,604 locations. The document-of-bodily-harm-cum-heartwarming-reunion is landing near the top of its box office estimates, which projected the movie to take in around $15 million to $20 million in its opening weekend. “Jackass Forever” sees the return of stuntmen Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man...

    Please excuse the personal nature of this story but I am getting very desperate and I thought there would be others on here that have dealt with a similar situation who might have advice/suggestions/etc My son married this gal (SWMBO) 10 years ago. As time has gone on she has become more and more: Controlling, domineering, misandristic (hatred of men), you name the pathology. Obviously, sad to admit, my son has completely lost his balls. He works hard and prefers to lay back and let her run roughshod over my 3 grandkids, me, him and whoever else might cross her...
  • Dominion CEO broke down in tears in front of his family and started screaming at the TV during Rudy Giuliani's 'sweaty' press conference where he accused the voting machines of rigging the vote for Biden

    The head of Dominion Voting Systems, John Poulos, revealed he broke down in tears as he watched Rudy Giuliani's infamous 'sweaty' press conference, where the former mayor of New York accused the company of rigging the 2020 election. As a bead of sweat mixed with hair dye dripped down his face, Giuliani, working as a personal attorney for former President Trump, said in the November 2020 news conference that Dominion 'specializes in voter fraud.' Oh, my God!' Poulos screamed as he heard the accusations, according to an interview he gave to the New York Times Magazine. 'I can't believe what's...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said former President Donald Trump should stop peddling conspiracy theories that the 2020 election was stolen, arguing that the claims are inconsistent with putting America first and damage the Republican Party’s efforts to blunt President Joe Biden’s agenda. “I think it would be better if he accepted the results of the 2020 election. And I think that would be better for the country. There hasn't been any type of substantive evidence that has come forward,” the former two-term governor and Republican 2024 contender said during a virtual appearance at the annual Texas Tribune Festival.

    The famous public intellectual Cornel West has dramatically quit his job at Harvard University following a tenure dispute, accusing the esteemed school of 'spiritual rot' and 'superficial diversity.' In a resignation letter he shared publicly on Monday night, 68-year-old West slammed Harvard's administration and revealed a litany of personal and professional complaints. 'How sad it is to see our beloved Harvard Divinity School in such decline and decay,' he wrote in the letter. 'The disarray of a scattered curriculum, the disenchantment of talented yet deferential faculty, and the disorientation of precious students loom large.'

    British scientist Peter Daszak has been removed from the COVID commission looking at the origins of the pandemic after helping secretly denounce the lab leak theory while failing to mention his close ties to the same facility. The scandal-hit scientist's departure from the UN-backed Lancet commission into the virus's origins was revealed on its website.It added a sentence in brackets under his photo and above his biography, saying 'recused from Commission work on the origins of the pandemic.'

  • Bibi & Hamas -- Only Winners in Gaza War

    "Israel is Winning Battles, Hamas is Winning the War." So ran the headline in the Jerusalem Post atop an analysis of the Gaza war, which began, "The IDF is registering great achievements in Operation Guardian of the Walls, but meanwhile the house appears to be collapsing from within." Hard to disagree. Consider this New York Times commentary about Israel's prime minister from the runner-up to the Democratic presidential nominee in the primaries of 2016 and 2020, Sen. Bernie Sanders: "Mr. Netanyahu has cultivated an increasingly intolerant and authoritarian type of racist nationalism ...(and) legitimized these forces ... by bringing them...
  • Former Fed Prosecutor Seeks Pledge From “Every Business In America” That 2020 Election Was “Accurate”

    “The final piece asks companies to ‘not support, donate to or endorse politicians, political campaigns or political action committees that promoted false conspiracy theories surrounding the 2020 presidential elections (or otherwise acted in ways contrary to a representative democracy)’.” A former federal prosecutor, Glenn Kirschner, has launched a campaign to force “every business in America” to take a pledge that states, in part, that “The 2020 presidential election was free and fair, and produced accurate, reliable results.” Any American business refusing to take this pledge, regardless of their own personal beliefs, will presumably be subjected to the cancel mob.

  • Joe Biden freezes billions of dollars of arms sales to the Middle East including F-35s to the UAE and smart bombs for Saudi Arabia

    President Joe Biden's administration has temporarily paused some pending arms sales to U.S. allies in order to review them, a U.S. State Department official said on Wednesday. Reviews of this sort are typical for a new administration, but Donald Trump's administration was doing deals down to the wire, including one for 50 stealthy F-35 jets made by Lockheed Martin as a side deal to the Abraham accords inked only moments before Biden was sworn into office. The Department is temporarily pausing the implementation of some pending U.S. defense transfers and sales under Foreign Military Sales and Direct Commercial Sales to...

    Race dominates early days of Biden presidency: 'It's like the Great Society for identity politics'President Biden on Wednesday said “environmental justice” for people of color will be a central feature of his efforts to combat climate change, again putting skin color and racial justice front and center in his early policy and personnel decisions.Mr. Biden’s early focus on what he calls “systemic racism and white supremacy” in America generated pushback from critics and scholars who say they don’t need a lecture from the commander-in-chief about the country’s racial history.“It’s like the Great Society for identity politics,” said Mike Gonzalez, a...

    Host Trevor Noah said Thursday night on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” that Democratic politicians were being hypocritical by ignoring their own coronavirus restrictions. Noah was highlighting a CNN report on the difference between the actions and mandates of San Francisco Mayor London Breed (D-CA), Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA), Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl (D), San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo (D-CA), Denver Mayor Michael Hancock (D-CO), and Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY).
  • Among first acts, Biden to call for 100 days of mask-wearing

    Joe Biden said Thursday that he will ask Americans to commit to 100 days of wearing masks as one of his first acts as president, stopping just short of the nationwide mandate he’s pushed before to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The move marks a notable shift from President Donald Trump, whose own skepticism of mask-wearing has contributed to a politicization of the issue. That’s made many people reticent to embrace a practice that public health experts say is one of the easiest ways to manage the pandemic, which has killed more than 275,000 Americans. The president-elect has frequently...

Our goal is to attempt to add context, and now we have capabilities to do that,” Dorsey said in a tweet. The story from the Post story alleges then-Vice President Biden’s son Hunter Biden attempted to introduce to a top executive at a Ukrainian company Hunter worked for to...

    During a recent session conducted over Zoom, my therapist told me I was “glowing.” In the middle of a pandemic. I struggled to explain why until she prodded, “No crazy experiences with white people this month?” “Not that I can immediately recall,” I replied. That’s when it became clear: I’m doing better these days because staying home alone and practicing social distancing has meant I’m avoiding many of the racist encounters that used to plague my daily life.
