    Monday, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) delivered a message to his fellow conservatives who still defend and support former President Donald Trump. Kinzinger, a member of the January 6 select committee, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that if conservatives who don’t stand up and speak out against Trump “are a part of the problem.” He added that their “silence is complicity.”

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, in his last few weeks in office, is attempting to silence parents critical of public education policies, according to two parent leaders. Proposed Chancellor’s Regulation D-210 would give the Department of Education (DOE) the authority to “discipline and remove” elected parents from Community Education Councils (CEC) — the city’s version of a school board — if they criticize the school district they are charged with holding accountable, write former District 2 CEC president Maud Maron and current District 2 CEC vice president Danyela Souza Egorov in the New York Post.

    Biden 'has replaced in-person meetings with video calls. He allows only a limited number of people in the building...He doesn’t leave the White House often…. He isn’t planning any foreign or domestic trips.'78-year-old President Joe Biden is nowhere to be seen, aside from sporadic television appearances through a black mask the size of a Rawlings baseball mitt, or appearing to be on the verge of collapse from dehydration in social media videos. On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced Biden’s name will not appear on the $1,400 COVID-19 stimulus direct payments being sent out to millions of Americans...

    The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) has adopted a new rule ahead of Thursday’s second and final presidential debate and will silence the microphone of the candidate who does not have the floor during the uninterrupted two-minute periods at the start of each segment. The Commission cited their prior announcement to consider “additional structure” to future debates following the first presidential debate with moderator Chris Wallace. The first debate saw several interruptions from both candidates and Wallace. While Joe Biden (D) set the tone by interrupting first, Wallace later stated that Trump bore the “primary responsibility” for what occurred during...

    That tireless advocate for Islam, Pope Francis, is facing criticism for his uncharacteristic silence over a Muslim population that is actually suffering injustice and persecution: the Uighurs of China. reported Tuesday that Cardinal Charles Maung Bo, archbishop of Yangon, Myanmar, denounced “the potential genocide” of “one million Uighur and other Muslims in China.” But Francis remains resolutely silent. The reason why may be found in his bank balance. Rahima Mahmut, head of the World Uighur Congress, declared: “Pope Francis, in particular, speaks almost every week at the Sunday Angelus, and on many other occasions, about issues of injustice in...

    The Pope Sits Out the Culture War As Italy debates “homotransphobia” law, Francis falls silent. Normally voluble on political matters, Pope Francis has fallen silent on Italy’s proposed “homotransphobia” legislation, a bill that threatens to criminalize religious opposition to the LGBTQ lifestyle. The pope’s silence shouldn’t surprise anyone. The culture war makes him distinctly uncomfortable. “Pope Francis, who has been known to take liberal views on social issues, has been noticeably silent on the issue,” reports the Financial Times. John L. Allen Jr. of Crux reports that people around Francis have even sent signals of support for elements of the bill:...

    The celebrated Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has threatened to quit Facebook if the social media platform refuses to silence her critics. “I am, like many others, questioning whether I should keep using Facebook or not,” Thunberg wrote in a Facebook post last week. “Allowing hate speech, the lack of fact-checking and, of course, the issues of interfering with democracy… are among many, many other things that are very upsetting.” “The constant lies and conspiracy theories about me and countless others, of course, result in hate, death threats and ultimately violence. This could easily be stopped if Facebook wanted to....

    The Catholic Thing ^ | September 23, 2019 | Fr. Gerald E. Murray
    [Catholic Caucus] Papal Standards – and Questions We know that Pope Francis is a believer in the value of criticism from his extensive remarks on the plane ride back from his recent apostolic visit to Africa. He said: “First of all, criticism always helps, always. When someone receives criticism, that person needs to do a self-critique right away and say: is this true or not? To what point? And I always benefit from criticism. Sometimes it makes you angry. . . . But there are advantages.”He wants critics to come forward with their arguments and be ready for a dialogue...

    Pope’s Inaction on Nicaragua Deemed ‘Shameful’ While Catholics suffer persecution, Francis remains silent Pope Francis' relative silence and apparent inaction in the face of mounting persecution of the Church by the government of Nicaragua has recently been characterized by a Miami Herald article as "shameful," "inexplicable" and "anemic." Anemic? Of course. Shameful? Certainly. Inexplicable? More like business as usual.  Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega has held a central place in his country's politics since the 1970s, when he was a leading figure within the communist Sandinista rebellion that (with Soviet Union backing) was waging a guerilla war and terror campaign against the country's more or less conservative government. When the government collapsed in 1979, Ortega...

    The Scourge of Abortion: Where Is the Catholic Outrage? Church leaders surrender to abortion lobby Once reports surfaced testifying to Nazi atrocities committed against Jews, a horrified post-war world demanded punishment for the Nazi's total depravity which included mass sterilizations of women and countless abortions performed on mothers — all in Hitler's effort to eradicate Jews from the earth. Driven to create an Aryan race, the Nazis murdered six million Jews plus Catholics and other "undesirables." The Nuremberg trials sought to bring the "political, military, judicial and economic leadership of Nazi Germany, who planned, carried out, or otherwise participated in the Holocaust and other...

    ROME, February 19, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Assembling amid banners of the four evangelists and in the holy name of Mary, today an international coalition of 100 Catholic laity mobilized in Rome’s historic center to silently “oppose the Vatican’s policy of silence about homosexuality,” ahead of this week’s Vatican summit on clerical sex abuse. The international coalition is called Acies ordinata. Its name, which Catholic tradition reserves for Mary Most Holy who assembles an army of the faithful to defeat her enemies — terribilis ut castrorum acies ordinate— is taken from the Old Testament canticle, the Song of Songs (6:3, 6:10).  Acies ordinata, photo by Diane Montagna/LifeSiteNews “You...

    For every story of people finding their perfect match miles above the Earth’s surface, there are countless (and we do mean countless), stories of sexual assault and uncomfortable situations that can occur midflight. Nevertheless, Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines decided to hand out napkins encouraging passengers to give out their phone numbers to fellow fliers after the complimentary drinks were served. Both Coca-Cola and Delta are now apologizing for this marketing mistake. “Be a little old school. Write down your number and give it to your plane crush. You never know…” one napkin read. “Because you’re on a plane full of...

    The Pope, Young People, And His Silence on Viganò – The Reason Nobody Trusts Him A question was asked of the Pope, during the in-flight press conference returning from World Youth Day in Panama, about youth: “[There are] many young people who are fallen away from the Church or who have difficulties. In your opinion, where do young people find these difficulties, what are the reasons that drive them away from the Church?”The Pope replied:“There are so many reasons! Some are personal, but more are general. I believe that first of all it is the lack of witness from Christians,...

    New Charges of Homosexuality in the Church. But the Pope Is Silent, and Blames “Clericalism” At the closing of the synod on Saturday, October 27, Jorge Mario Bergoglio once again identified the “Great Accuser,” Satan, as the ultimate author of the accusations unleashed against him, the pope, in order to strike out in reality against “Mother Church”:“This is why it is time to defend the Mother. […] Because the Accuser in attacking us is attacking the Mother, but the Mother is not to be touched.”With this Francis justified yet again his silence in the face of the accusation - publicly...

    ROME, September 27, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has today issued a new extraordinary testimony, responding to Pope Francis’ refusal to answer the charge that he knew of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s sexual abuse, yet made McCarrick “one of his principal agents in governing the Church.” In the four-page document, the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States also responds to the Pope’s recent homilies which seem to cast himself in the role of Christ and Viganò as the diabolical “Great Accuser.” “Has Christ perhaps become invisible to his vicar? Perhaps is he being tempted to try to act as a substitute...

    SAN FRANCISCO, September 24, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The founder of U.S. Catholic publishing house Ignatius Press has called for Pope Francis to answer Archbishop Viganò’s allegations that he knowingly promoted an American cardinal accused of abusing seminarians and priests.  Father Joseph Fessio, SJ, told CNN that he finds the pontiff’s refusal to give an answer “deplorable”. In recent weeks, commentators have interpreted Pope Francis’ homilies about “the Great Accuser” and Christ’s “silence” as coded commentary on the Vatican whistleblower’s testimony and the pontiff’s own reluctance to answer it.  “He’s attacking Viganò and everyone who is asking for answers,” Fessio told...
