    The worst nightmare for an incumbent President is to receive a serious intra-party nomination challenge. In recent history, it has happened three times. In 1976, a conservative challenger, former California Governor Ronald Reagan, made a valiant attempt that almost succeeded in denying the GOP nomination for President Gerald Ford.

    Pope Francis warned Jesus Christ followers not to convince someone to become a Christian, insisting it is a “pagan” activity. “To evangelize is not to proselytize,” the Pope told crowds gathered in the Vatican for his weekly general audience. “To proselytize is something pagan; it is neither religious nor evangelical,” the Pope said.

    Dr. Wallace Manheimer, a man with a physics PhD from MIT and 50-years of experience in nuclear research, warns that "there is certainly no scientific basis for expecting a climate crisis from too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in the next century or so. Electric cars, wind and solar power–all have massive disadvantages, and are incapable of replacing existing systems without devastating consequences." The United Kingdom's nincompoop King Charles, a man who once aspired to be a tampon, lives in several palaces and jets around the world calling for the end of consumerism and convenience as "the only rational...

    This week Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla) petitioned for a grand jury investigation into "any crimes and wrongdoing related to the development, promotion and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines." He also called for the establishment of a state Public Health Integrity Committee, saying "the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has lost the public's trust. Withholding data on the scope of the damage done by the covid vaccines and censoring scientific research into potential alternative therapies for dealing with the disease harm public health.

    The US Department of Defense (DOD) has mandated that beginning on Wednesday, November 30th, all Department of Defense personnel, service members, DOD civilians, contractors, military trainees, family members, and visitors to the Davis, Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson will be required to wear a mask again when in any building on the installation. This is despite the near 100% vaccinated status of these personnel.

    This week the Department of Education sent out letters to the 16 million students who expected the government to cancel at least $10,000 of the debt they each accrued to attend expensive colleges. In the letter, Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona expressed sympathy for their plight and blamed "enemies of our democracy for thwarting the President's efforts to reduce your suffering." "As we saw this year, the Supreme Court--the most undemocratic institution within our government--cruelly block the President's executive order granting you partial relief," Cardona wrote. "They said he lacked authority to unilaterally do this since the Constitution gave Congress...

    The attempt by Bill Gates (R), Chairman of the Board of Supervisors for Maricopa County in Arizona, to minimize the election day fiasco at 70 of the county's 223 polling locations failed to defuse suspicion that it was a calculated effort to swing the election in favor of Democrats. His claim that the heavily Republican 59 locations out of the 70 that were affected was "coincidental" seems implausible. Combined with the fact that 75% of Republican voters were predicted to vote at the polls on election day the inability to count a lasrge portion of their ballots lends more credibility...

    While LGBTQ candidates and their supporters celebrated several milestone victories around the nation in this year’s midterm elections, California quietly reached its own: At least 10% of its state lawmakers identify publicly as LGBTQ, believed to be a first for any U.S. legislature. The California legislators, all Democrats, are proud of their success but say it underscores the hard work that remains in their own state and elsewhere, such as handling the fallout from measures such as Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law, which bans some lessons on sexual orientation and gender identity, or laws in other states limiting transgender students’...

The bill outlaws the activity of any religious organizations or institutions, which are part or in any way accountable to the Russian Orthodox Church "in canonical, organizational and other issues," the European Solidarity Party said on Telegram. The party said that the bill aimed at preventing threats to the national security of Ukraine and providing order, and described "the liberation of Ukraine from the Russian Orthodox Church as yet another step towards independent Ukraine."

  • WATCH: Kari Lake Boosts Testimonies Of Arizonans Who Experienced Voting Issues, Irregularities On Election Day

    Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has taken to Twitter to elevate the voices of Arizonans who testify that they had experienced voting issues, irregularities, and other discrepancies on Election Day. Some of the individuals argue that these issues caused the widespread disenfranchisement of Republican voters. The videos of concerned Arizonans come in light of Lake’s highly contested election against Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, where reports of misprinted ballots and widespread voting issues surfaced as soon as the polls opened across the state — including in the state’s most populated county. Hobbs, who claims victory in the gubernatorial race, just...
  • Cato Institute sets Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene straight on who’s bringing fentanyl across the border

    11/17/2022 9:36:22 PM PST · by Danny8 · 34 replies ^ | November 17, 2022 | Brett T
    Maybe securing the border isn’t the fix. A reporter tried to set Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene straight by telling her that most fentanyl coming across the border from Mexico is carried by U.S. citizens, not immigrants. When challenged, the reporter said his source was the Cato Institute. Fentanyl, the synthetic opioid responsible for 88 percent of opioid overdose deaths in the United States, is showing up in campaign ads across the country. The message is simple: Fentanyl would disappear if illegal immigration disappeared. This is wrong. If anything, border crackdowns have exacerbated the crisis. Much of this narrative places blame...

    ROME — Pope Francis condemned conservative populists Sunday, accusing them of exploiting people’s real needs with “facile and hasty solutions.” “Let us not listen to prophets of doom,” the pontiff said in his homily for the World Day of the Poor. “Let us not be enchanted by the sirens of populism, which exploit people’s real needs by facile and hasty solutions.” “Let us not follow the false ‘messiahs’ who, in the name of profit, proclaim recipes useful only for increasing the wealth of a few, while condemning the poor to the margins of society,” he urged. Populists exploit people’s fears,...

    Same-sex couples wanting to get a blessing of their union by a mainline Protestant Church in French-speaking Switzerland will be able to do it in all churches. The Reformed Church of the Canton Vaud (EERV), whose main city is Lausanne, voted in its synod on 4-5 November that it would join the other cantonal Protestant Churches of the Evangelical Reformed Church of Switzerland (the country’s historic Protestant state church) in offering a neutral "marriage blessing service". The regional church voted to amend seven articles of its regulations to make sure that from now on all civil marriages would be blessed...

Christians from across Iraq’s Nineveh Plain came to the cathedral to participate in the bell-ringing ceremony and Divine Liturgy on Nov. 13. Archbishop Najeeb Michaeel, OP, the Chaldean archbishop of Mosul and Akra, led a procession to the grotto of the Virgin Mary, the patroness of Mosul, in the church courtyard before ceremoniously ringing the bell.
