    How do we know that Pope Paul VI consulted with Saul Alinsky? In The Rite of Sodomy Randy Engel wrote that Saul Alinsky met Pope Paul VI while Pope Paul VI was still Archbishop of Milan: “It was said of the new Archbishop of Milan that he didn’t hear church bells, he heard factory whistles. “It is not surprising therefore that on one of his visits to the Archbishop’s residence, Jacques Maritain, the once great Thomastic philosopher, brought with him, Saul David Alinsky, the “Apostle of the Permanent Revolution.” Montini [then Archbishop of Milan, later Pope Paul VI] was so...

    Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis wants to nominate a senior fellow at a Soros-funded think tank as undersecretary at the Pentagon, as the embattled Cabinet official continues to clash with the White House over prospective nominees. Politico reports that Mattis wants Rudy deLeon — a senior fellow at the far-left Center for American Progress (CAP) — to come on board as undersecretary for personnel and readiness. DeLeon previously served in the Clinton administration as deputy secretary of defense. During that time, Gen. Mattis served as his senior military assistant. DeLeon worked for Boeing as senior vice president from 2001 to...

    More than 300,000 workers are planning to walk out of their jobs in protest of President Trump on International Workers Day, according to a new report. The report by Buzzfeed News said that "350,000 service workers plan to strike on May 1, a traditional day for labor activism across the world, in the most direct attempt yet by organized labor to capture the energy from a resurgent wave of activism across the country since the election of Donald Trump." The Service Employees International Union, which endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president back in 2015, will be a large component of...
  • Rex Tillerson's old feud with Venezuela may play role in bilateral relation

    Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, is a familiar name in Venezuela – and some are wondering if a decade-old feud will play a role in the bilateral agenda. The longtime chief executive officer of Exxon Mobil became persona non grata among socialist Chavistas in the late 2000s, when he confronted then President Hugo Chavez as they negotiated compensation arrangements after the oil industry was nationalized. “I don’t know if Tillerson will personalize his relationship with Venezuela or implement an institutional policy,” said Venezuelan analyst Luis Salamanca to FoxNews.com, also pointing out that the U.S. has nothing...

    A pro-Trump rally at the University of California, Berkeley turned into a violent, bloody riot Saturday evening. The civil disturbance led to several attendees in pro-Trump clothing and American flag regalia being assaulted. Police in riot gear, and even a man in a gas-mask looking helmet and makeshift shield with an American flag intervened after currently unidentified men were assaulted and beaten on the ground. Some Trump supporters were pepper-sprayed by opposition, according to Buzzfeed News.

    The recent Women's March was, by any measure, a huge success. Now, the organization has announced its support for a follow up event in the form of an 'international women's strike' on March 8th, which is International Women's Day. In the aftermath of Trump's election liberal politics have felt like a bit of a scramble. Many people are concerned, or downright afraid, and coalitions are forming on the basis of opposition to Trump. Hell, even Michael Moore is back in a prominent role. In this kind of environment, I think it's more important than ever to know exactly who is...

    On January 13, Robert González Nieves, archbishop of San Juan, revealed Pope Francis’ role in Barack Obama’s pardon of terrorist mastermind Oscar Lopez-Rivera. Speaking from the Cathedral of San Juan, Nieves announced that although the Holy Father made no public statement of his involvement, he had indeed worked behind the curtain on behalf of the unrepentant, bloody-handed Lopez-Rivera. The archbishop was pleased to say: “I know that there have been efforts made through diplomatic channels. The pope is very aware. We are grateful to the Holy Father for his support.” Papal complicity in this politically charged act received little notice...

    Police and criminal justice reform are just the beginning. Donald Trump repeatedly expressed hostility towards Black Lives Matter activists during his presidential campaign, particularly for their efforts to confront police brutality. Now, faced with a Trump agenda whose repercussions for African Americans could reach far beyond policing, BLM organizers say they are broadly expanding their mission. Ever since a police officer killed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, the Black Lives Matter movement has grown into a loose-knit web of like-minded groups nationwide that focus primarily on ending police brutality and the disproportionate incarceration of African Americans. Last August, a...

The brutal Fidel Castro-backed Marxist-Leninist terror group, known as th e "Armed Forces of National Liberation" (FALN), murdered six and injured dozens of Americans amid its campaign to enslave Puerto Rico under communist rule.

    Thousands of people are expected in Washington, D.C., next month to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump. They'll join thousands more who will be there to celebrate the incoming president. But sorting out which group gets to be where is causing controversy. Yasmina Mrabet, an organizer with the left-wing Answer Coalition, says her group expects to bring in protesters from around the country. "We have buses coming from Philadelphia, New York, New Haven, Boston, Chicago, cities in Florida," she says. The group's slogan is "Stop the Trump Agenda." Mrabet says they're especially opposed to imposing new restrictions on immigrants, Muslims...

    The government of Belarus has denied permission for a Catholic priest from Russia to serve in a parish in Vitebsk, the Forum 18 news service reports. The government rejected a request for permission for Father Klemens Werth to serve as a pastor. Under the law of Belarus, government approval is required for any foreigner to act as a religious minister.

    The participation of an excommunicated bishop in the ordination of a new bishop last week was “a slap in the face of the Holy Father,” says Cardinal Joseph Zen, the retired Bishop of Hong Kong. Cardinal Zen referred to the November 30 ordination of Bishop Joseph Tang Yuange for the Chengdu diocese. The ordination ceremony took place with approval of both the Vatican and the Holy See. But against the wishes of the faithful in Chengdu, Bishop Lei Shiyin of Leshan, who has been excommunicated after being appointed without a Vatican mandate, joined in the ceremony. The determination of government...

    My sister shared a video link with me. My reply to her grew into another of my goofy rants! J, I saw that O'Reilly segment when it aired! Powerful and essentially correct. I've commented numerous times that the left is NOT going to go quietly. They MAY go with the bang of a second civil war that will make the 700,000+ dead of the first one look tame! But they have a problem: WE HAVE DAMN NEAR ALL THE GUNS AND KNOW HOW TO USE THEM. If it does go down, it will NOT go well for them. Thank God...

    The end has come for a popular Grand Rapids restaurant known as much for its creative vegan dishes as its progressive business model. For much of its five-year existence, the eatery went by the moniker Bartertown Diner, until it was rebranded in September to The Garden Diner and Cafe. The offbeat 30-seat eatery announced this month that its last day would be Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Tyler DurdenNovember 30, 2016Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com You have to hand it to the regressive left, when they conjure propaganda they really know how to run with it. When their indoctrination doesn’t take, and the public stops them cold with a wall of skepticism, they don’t give up! No — the little buggers double down and go for broke! I would point out, however, that this seemingly boundless drive to forsake all logic and reason in the name of ideology is not due to these people being special in their ambition. Rather, they are following a somewhat successful...

In his campaign, Mr Trump threatened to scrap the Iran deal and also hinted at working more closely with Russia. Mr Brennan will step down in January after four years leading the CIA. In the first interview by a CIA director with the British media, John Brennan outlined a...
