    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Monday that he will be heading to Buffalo with President Biden on Tuesday in the wake of a racist mass shooting in a predominantly Black neighborhood that left 10 people dead. “Today, we hold in our hearts every single New Yorker whose life was tragically cut short during Saturday’s violence. We weep knowing nothing, nothing will ever be able to bring them back. We mourn with their families and with their friends, with the entire community still shell shocked by this shooting,” he said on the floor.

    Top officials at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency are reportedly preparing for a “mass migration event” at the United States-Mexico border if President Joe Biden ends the last set of Trump-era border controls. Reports have circulated in recent weeks that Biden is considering ending the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) order known as Title 42, first imposed by Trump, which gives federal immigration officials broad authority to quickly return border crossers to their native countries.

    Earth is far from a solid mass of rock. The outer layer of our planet – known as the lithosphere – is made up of more than 20 tectonic plates; as these gargantuan slates glide about the face of the planet, we get the movement of continents, and interaction at the boundaries, not least of which is the rise and fall of entire mountain ranges and oceanic trenches. Yet there's some debate over what causes these giant slabs of rock to move around in the first place. Amongst the many hypotheses put forward over the centuries, convection currents generated by...

    MOSCOW -- Russian authorities have published new regulations on the expedited mass burial of humans and animals who die as a result of military conflicts or noncombatant emergencies, stoking already heightened tensions that the country may be preparing to invade Ukraine. The document -- published on the Emergencies Ministry's website on December 20 -- appears as the United States, the European Union, and Ukraine have expressed alarm over Russia' buildup of tens of thousands of soldiers near Ukraine’s borders, interpreting it as a possible prelude to military action. Russia has denied it is planning to invade Ukraine and has issued...
  • Biden says stalled spending bill provision would reduce mass shootings

    President Biden on Tuesday called for passage of his stalled multitrillion-dollar social spending bill in a video message marking the ninth anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre — highlighting a relatively obscure provision in the bill that he said would prevent additional mass shootings. Biden has taken many opportunities to promote the sprawling package, which would cost $2.2 trillion as passed last month by the House, or $4.5 trillion if its programs are extended over 10 years. “There are three common-sense bills to reduce gun violence that the Senate should pass now, right away, long overdue,” Biden said...

Vice President Kamala Harris was needed to break two votes that were tied 50-50 along party lines...Republicans all voted against Rollins' nomination.... “to declining to prosecute low-level offenses, Rachael Rollins has really shown that we can take a different approach to law enforcement," said Carol Rose, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)... Rollins has also sparred with Boston’s largest police union, which accused her last summer of inciting violence against law enforcement..

    Officials in Los Angeles announced Thursday with great fanfare that they had made 14 arrests in connection with recent “mass looting” events in the city — but all fourteen have since been released from jail, either with or without posting bail. The Los Angeles Times reported: After a spate of brazen smash-and-grab robberies left Los Angeles-area retailers and shoppers on edge last month, officials announced Thursday that they had arrested 14 suspects in connection with the crimes. Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore, joined by other officials and members of the business community at LAPD headquarters,...

    [Catholic Caucus] The little boy whose existence is a threat to the new kind of Church desired by Francis A young boy. A symbol of a wide open future ahead of us. In the Pontifical Mass celebrated in Philadelphia's Cathedral-Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul on the Feast of the Assumption, a very small boy was photographed at the Communion Rail. His eyes are bright with expectation: he has certainly been taught enough about Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.This little boy is a threat. He is a threat for what he represents: life, family, devotion, all...

    [Catholic Caucus] Bishop Paprocki: “The problem has not been solved, but tensions have been heightened.”After Pope Francis released his July 16th motu proprio Traditionis custodes, which placed restrictions on the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass, Bishop Thomas Paprocki of the Diocese of Springfield, Illinois, was one of the first American bishops to quickly respond. In a July 19th decree, Bishop Paprocki offered a dispensation allowing the Traditional Latin Mass to continue without restrictions at two parishes in his diocese, and subsequently another decree allowing it to continue at a third of the 129 parishes he oversees.Bishop Paprocki, 68, was...

    The Next Conclave: A Nightmare ScenarioJuly 17, 2021 (Steven O’Reilly) – Yesterday, Pope Francis issued Traditionis Custodes, his motu proprio which places significant restrictions on the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) going forward. I will not comment in great detail on its harsh measures as others have already done so. However, for the ‘pope of mercy’ who speaks often of those on the ‘peripheries’ of the Church, it is clear neither his mercy nor the peripheries extend as far as those attached to the TLM. “Irreversible Change“ One of the oddities of Traditionis Custodes is not so much that Francis did...
  • Twelve quick thoughts on Pope Francis dropping his long-expected bomb on the traditional latin Mass

    Twelve quick thoughts on Pope Francis dropping his long-expected bomb on the traditional latin Mass 1) In his motu proprio Traditionis Custodes, Pope Francis says St. John Paul II’s indults were only meant to heal the breach with Archbishop Lefebvre, not to have the traditional latin Mass as a continuing reality in the Church (my paraphrase). He quotes Pope Benedict XVI on “allowing” the TLM, which seems to buttress the point of traditionalist writer Peter Kwasnieski’s criticism of even Benedict’s outreach in Summorum Pontificum.2) He calls the Novus Ordo “one of the key measures” of Vatican II. The Novus...

    The Persecution Has Started: English Monastery Stops Celebrating Roman Mass Following Francis' Traditionis Custodes and instructions from Clifton Bishop Declan Lang, 71, England, the two Glastonbury Benedictines end celebrating the Roman Rite.Father Bede Rowe announced on his blog on July 17 that Saturday's 12.30pm Roman Mass at Glastonbury will be the last there.Until now, the community, which was erected by Bishop Lang in August 2019, sang the Divine Office and the Conventual Mass according to the Roman Rite, which St Benedict already knew. The monks also serve Novus Ordo parishes. They are based in a presbytery and are thus at...

    The real reason Francis hates the Latin MassDear Friends: The bad news keeps rolling in out of the Eternal City, but we’re more determined than ever to keep the clans united and to keep the momentum going. Thank God, Francis Fatigue is in full swing even among many who are not Traditional Catholics. In this exclusive, I consider the question of why in the middle of global upheaval, apostasy, and pandemic, Francis is focusing his papal sights not a church wracked with apostasy, but rather on the small remnant of believers who wish simply to attend the Mass of...

Modernists have protested ad orientem worship"Previous norms, instructions, permissions and customs that do not conform to the provisions of the present motu proprio are abrogated," Francis declared in his motu proprio euphemistically titled Traditionis Custodes (Guardians of the Tradition).The new decree, subtitled "On the Use of the Roman Liturgy Prior to the Reform of 1970," severely restricts Summorum Pontificum (SP) —...

    Dear Friends: Don’t be discouraged. God is in charge of everything, and this would not be happening if He did not allow it. This has all happened before. I know, I remember, I lived through it. This is a chastisement, yes, but it does not alter what we are called to do: We must know, love, and serve God, and resist those who do not. Francis has no power to change that. There is no mystery here. . . no surprise. We know exactly what this is. It's all about the crumbling facade of Vatican II, shuttered churches, empty seminaries,...

    The bomb has been dropped. Today Pope Francis issued his motu proprio Traditionis custodes severely restricting the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass. In effect, it wipes out Pope Benedict’s 14-year-old motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, which was issued in order to help those faithful who “continued to be attached with such love and affection to the earlier liturgical forms which had deeply shaped their culture and spirit.” Apparently Pope Francis doesn’t think that’s necessary anymore. I’m not going to analyze the details of the new motu proprio here—you can find that elsewhere. Instead I’d like to share my initial reaction...
