Donations to Obama from faculty,
staff, at Catholic colleges
outpaced those to Romney

Daily Caller, by Caroline May

The vast majority of faculty and staff members from the nation’s top Catholic universities donated to President Barack Obama’s campaign over Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s this cycle, according to a new report. Ninety-one percent of the employees at 23 different Catholic schools gave to Obama, according to Federal Elections Commission data available on OpenSecrets.org and analysed by the conservative college site Campus Reform. Much has been made of Obama’s Affordable Care Act mandate requiring employers to provide contraception coverage, a requirement that church officials say conflicts with Catholic religious doctrine,

Never will I give a cent to The Won. But politics makes people act strange. My grandfather hated, loathed and despised Franklin Roosevelt and voted for him all four times. He was a Democrat and that´s all that mattered to my grandfather.

Good article. thanks for posting. it seems to back up what we have seen happening to us. The Catholics Colleges in America are still promoting social justice against the specific directions of the Pope. Georgetown, Notre Dame , Seattle U and some others are definitely not good choices anymore. There are other Jesuit institutions that still offer well rounded quality education. As a parent , I am glad to be almost done with this worry. Glad none of them Majored in worthless Resentment Studies. They also will pay back their loans because it is the right thing to do.

The Catholic bishops should review these lists and purge those who supported Obama. I think the church needs to get tough on people like Biden and Pelosi who are "faux" Catholics. I would excommunicate the two of them as an example of a new "get tough" policy.

#4 nailed it. And as far as leadership of the Sheeple by German Shepard Benedict XV and Cardinal Dolan, head Beanie Boy of USCCB, they lead with wordy philosophical blather which most of the hierarchy doesn´t understand, even more so the laity.
God help us!

Knowing the history of the Catholic Church, this article should not surprise anyone. I have Mormon friends and I have Catholic friends. As far as living ones faith, Mormons win hands down.

It´s because being a Catholic University has nothing to do with religion.

How is it detestable for liberal progressives to bash religion, but perfectly acceptable on this conservative website to allow such hateful rhetoric to stand? What happened to Lucianne´s order for civil respect in her salon, not a saloon? All Catholics did not vote or contribute to the horrible forces that put Obama in a second term. Anyone in a lynch party to hang all of a group based on a portion of that group´s actions are no better than hood wearing buffoons. wow.

The elites in this country, Catholic or not, will always go lefty. No surprise. I would like to see Rome come down on these types. You would see a revitalization of the rank and file Catholics in the world.

These donors are employees at Catholic colleges, that doesn´t mean they´re Catholic. The best teacher at my Catholic high school was a Jewish woman.

Unfortunately, as another poster has pointed out, liberalism is a religion unto itself and it trumps traditional religion. Not all the employees in Catholic institutions are Catholic and some who are can be referred to as "Cafeteria Catholics". Its just like the Jews who vote for Zippy even though he has been openly hostile to Israel.

Very depressing. It´s time to live your Faith, not vote against it with your money.

Everything zippy stands for and preaches goes against Church teachings - period.

I agree it´s time to publicly purge the high profile faux like Pelosi, Biden, Sebelius and so many others.

TCM at 20

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Accused O.C. killers likely

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

Three pictures in the

The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

Deaths at Phoenix VA hospital
may be tied to delayed care

Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/10/2014 8:46:23 AM     Post Reply
The chairman of the House Committee on Veterans ­Affairs said Wednesday that dozens of VA hospital patients in Phoenix may have died while awaiting medical care. Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., said staff investigators also have evidence that the Phoenix VA Health Care System keeps two sets of records to conceal prolonged waits that patients must endure for ­doctor appointments and treatment. "It appears as though there could be as many as 40 veterans whose deaths could be ­related to delays in care," ­Miller announced to a stunned audience during a committee hearing Wednesday.

Frank Arthur Janssen, 63, was taken from his home at 1401 Sky Hill Place and was being held in an apartment in Atlanta. In announcing his rescue, the FBI did not detail the motive for or group responsibility for his kidnapping.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
