    Maybe Iíll say something that someone might dislike, but thatís the way I see it,Ē Putin said in an interview for the documentary Valaam, an excerpt of which was broadcast on Russia 1. ďFirst of all, faith has always accompanied us, becoming stronger every time our country, our people, have been through hard times. ďThere were those years of militant atheism when priests were eradicated, churches destroyed, but at the same time a new religion was being created. Communist ideology is very similar to Christianity, in fact: freedom, equality, brotherhood, justice Ė everything is laid out in the Holy Scripture,...

    Cables Portray Expanded Reach of Drug Agency By GINGER THOMPSON and SCOTT SHANE WASHINGTON ó The Drug Enforcement Administration has been transformed into a global intelligence organization with a reach that extends far beyond narcotics, and an eavesdropping operation so expansive it has to fend off foreign politicians who want to use it against their political enemies, according to secret diplomatic cables. In far greater detail than previously seen, the cables, from the cache obtained by WikiLeaks and made available to some news organizations, offer glimpses of drug agents balancing diplomacy and law enforcement in places where it can be...

Fujimori has been in and out of hospital for a variety of health problems in...

    Yes Sholom Rubashkin Is FACTUALLY Innocent For my dear friends who have embraced darkness at a time of great joy, understand that your scary swan song is reminiscent of one who greets the news that a 95 year old has survived a quadruple heart attack (may Hashem protect all) with a loud ďhe's not worth celebrating. I remember him when he was six months old and he once spat up on his grandmother.Ē The only difference here is that the only vomit in this case are the lies and negativity themselves. Before jumping head first into the mud (we will,...

    The Washington Times reports that the Southern Poverty Law Center refuses to categorize Antifa as a hate-group because, according to SPLC president Richard Cohen, the far-left violent radical group isnít actually hateful. "If you are familiar with our work, we write about Antifa often,Ē Mr. Cohen said in his Thursday testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee. ďWe condemn their tactics ó Iíve said so publicly and we do so always ó but Antifa is not a group that vilifies people on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion and the like.Ē Antifa hates capitalism, hates America, and hates anybody that...

    In his commentary "Unions ignore long history of excluding minorities from jobs," Missouri Rep. Shamed Dogan (R)†highlighted past discriminatory practices in organized laborís history as reason for implementing our stateís currently pending "right to work" law, along with other anti-worker measures such as ending prevailing wage and minimum wage requirements. To claim that unions continue to exclude minorities and are detrimental to working people is ridiculous and erroneous in the face of the facts. The truth is, enacting right to work†and other anti-worker laws would only hurt the minority communities Dogan seeks to protect, by lowering wages, reducing benefits and...

    War, hunger and extremist violence around the world will intensify next year, a Geneva-based think-tank predicted in a new report. The report published Thursday by ACAPS, a nonprofit that supports the global humanitarian sector with daily monitoring and analysis of 150 nations, examined the current humanitarian crises in 18 countries and the anticipated corresponding needs for 2018. The findings were grim. "If 2017 did not look good, predictions for 2018 are no better: violence and insecurity are likely to deteriorate in Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Libya, Ethiopia, Mali, Somalia and Syria next year," ACAPS director Lars Peter Nissen wrote...

So, it took quite a bit to get me to boycott the NFL, but they managed it. Until the owners require their players to stand for the national anthem, or sit for the game, I wonít watch a minute, and Iím not alone. Since Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the anthem in a misguided protest against police violence, the NFL has been hemorrhaging fans. Both TV viewership...

    There was a giddiness in D.C. this week, as the fantasy of removing Trump by impeachment seemed marginally less fantastic. I do not begrudge this excitement for a millisecond. God knows we could do with some cheer. I can only hope itís a wake-up call to the Dems. In 2017, they are either useless or actively counterproductive in the struggle to resist right-authoritarianism. They have learned nothing from 2016. Their intelligentsia seems determined to ensure that no midwestern whites ever vote for the party again. Their public faces are still Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi. They still believe...

    Tinseltown Travelogue is a three-part series exploring Hollywood's stunning hypocrisy and institutionalized bigotry. This story, months in the making, comes on the heels of the explosive New York Times exposé of alleged sexual misconduct over decades by Tinseltown's most celebrated producer, Harvey Weinstein, and further unmasks an industry in the midst of an ethical unraveling. Instead of confronting Hollywood's biggest "open secret" of systemic moral decay, Tinseltown's elite have chosen to exhibit disdain for everyday Americans through brutal mockery and relentless attacks on their beliefs. Wrapped in scandal and historic box office lows, something brand new is happening to Hollywood…it appears Americans...
