Miami Herald columnist Andres Oppenheimer, a liberal, has noticed something wimpy going on about Pope Francis and Venezuela: Venezuela’s Conference of Bishops has released a bombshell statement demanding an immediate end of dictator Nicolás Maduro’s “illegitimate and failed government.” So why isn’t Pope Francis saying anything even close to that? Venezuela's bishops put out a fiery statement blasting the brutal, illegitimate Maduro dictatorship, calling for its extinction. Oppenheimer then asks: So what did the pope say after the bishops’ statement? Instead of echoing their demand that Maduro leave office,

Frankie is a fellow traveler with Maduro. It’s one of the reasons that I’m finding it harder and harder to attend mass and put my envelope in the collection plate.

An easy method for not putting money in the collection plate is to compare the collection plate no different than a panhandler on the street.

To make matters worse, Pope Francisco’s #2 man is Secretary of State Cardinal Parolin, long time Nuncio to Venezuela.

The pope today and Jimmie Carter in the 1990's - recall that Prez Carter did not dispute the very crooked election of Chavez. He had to know that election was a fraud but did not want to risk a confrontation with the gangs that Chavez had on his side.

Yeah, agree with others--Benedict was taken down. I think about the Italian intelligence officials that were recently forced to resign. The globalist acolytes (BO, Merkel, May, the UN and EU commie bureaucrats, Soros) could not accept a truly conservative Pope. They bagged a Pope and thought they could also put Trump's head in their trophy room.

"Eggs" Benedict is still locked in the broom closet at Castle Gandolfo. Conservatism is always met with violence by loving,caring, tolerant "Progressives" ......dontchaknow. You wouldn't want to insult the Church by implying that it's not worth stealing.

So guess what just went out the window when Venezuelan jet interfered in an unsafe manner with U.S. fighters over the Caribbean Friday? Try the canard that Russia really wants President Trump to win the election. That's been the narrative since the end of 2016 - and has continued well into this year. Here is what is being tweeted now from the U.S. Southern Command: O.K., the first thought that came to mind is perhaps some surprise that Venezuela even has gas for jets at all, or working jets, given the country's lack of spare parts. But oh, those Russian advisors have been busy, arriving like the cavalry when
Bernie Sanders Just Destroyed the
Case For A $15 Minimum Wage

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, for decades an agitator for a government-forced minimum/living wage, announced over the weekend that his campaign’s wage floor will be increased to $15 an hour. To make it work, workers’ hours will be cut. Did he just take the minimum wage issue off the table for Democrats? In 1986, known then as the “socialist mayor of Burlington,” Vermont, Sanders campaigned on raising the state’s minimum wage while running for governor. During one of his runs for the U.S. Senate, where he is serving his third term,

Most of the Jewish community has feverishly and piously supported last week’s Democrat-sponsored Resolution condemning President Trump’s remarks against Ilhan Omar. Omar, of course, is a notorious, unrepentant anti-Semite and daily demonizer of Israel. But she has become, for many Jews, a heroine, a civil rights star, a noble cause. Enjoying such support, Omar rewarded the Jewish community by immediately announcing, after the Resolution’s passage, a piece of legislation demanding that Congress vote in favor of BDS against Israel and her Jewish inhabitants.

It is no coincidence that the streets of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle are full of homeless people, shooting up drugs and discarding their needles on the sidewalks, defecating and urinating wherever they happen to be standing, sitting, or squatting, and accosting passers-by demanding money. The left-wing politicians and their voters tolerate and subsidize this behavior, so they attract people who want to live this way in growing numbers. As the old saying puts it, there’s an easy way and a hard way to solve this problem. And a problem it is, because of the settled science

Is the Democratic wall of craziness starting to crack? Arizona's Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, of all people, the former Code Pinker in the tutu, has come up with a sensible, bipartisan immigration proposal for ending asylum abuse, a proposal so good any Republican can support it. According to National Review: Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.) has joined a bipartisan group of nine colleagues proposing a pilot program that would expedite the deportation of migrants who make invalid asylum claims. The senators outlined the Operation Safe Return program, which would allow the deportation of migrants within 15 days

In the "squad" response to President Trump over his tweets to them about their anti-Americanism, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a doozy of a response. She declared that the U.S. "belongs" to "everyone," including illegal immigrants. She couched it all in the smarmy language of addressing all the children of America. Here's a short clip: CBS News has a longer clip, which leads in with Ocasio-Cortez lamenting border detentions of illegally crossing kids, leaving zero doubt that it's illegals she is addressing in her syrupy statement.

"If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it. If in fact you have private insurance, you can keep it,” said Joe Biden in Iowa on Monday as he unveiled his plan to turbocharge Obamacare. Wait, have we heard this before? Oh, right, it was President Obama pitching the original version of Obamacare, with a lie so egregious PolitiFact named it “Lie of the Year.” Biden’s lie is worse, since his Obamacare 2.0 would result in tens of millions forced off employer plans they like and into the Obamacare exchanges, where the only choice would soon be government-run Medicare-style insurance.

At first glance, it looked like maybe a blunder, some political overplaying of the hand, the Sunday move by President Trump which could finally make the internally warring Democrats circle their fractious wagon and unite. It certainly was politically risky. Trump tweeted out this string of comments: Trump was horning in on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's public catfight with four far-left fellow Democratic representatives after one of them, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was last seen calling Pelosi 'racist.' Pelosi had merely told the "squad" to keep their internal party disagreements with others on the inside. They ignored that and

London - The CEO of German industrial giant Siemens says that President Donald Trump is becoming a symbol of intolerance following his attacks on four female members of Congress. "I find it depressing that the most important political office in the world is turning into the face of racism and exclusion," Joe Kaeser said Saturday on Twitter. Kaeser's remarks are the most prominent criticism from the business world in reaction to Trump's rally last week in North Carolina.

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, one of the two dozen Democrats competing for the party's presidential nomination, said President Trump is weaponizing racial animus to sow division in the country for his own political gain. "He is somebody that is using race like a weapon to divide our country against itself," Booker said on "Face the Nation" Sunday. "He's been using it since before he became president as a way to accelerate his gaining of political power." The New Jersey Democrat was referring to the president's recent attacks against four progressive lawmakers of color. Last week, Mr. Trump posted a series of racist tweets suggesting that Reps.

There are currently no nationwide demographic trends that “favor Republicans” in future elections, Axios reports.The nation’s shifting demography — spurred primarily from mass legal immigration where more than 1.2 million foreign nationals are added to the U.S. population every year — is set to make it increasingly difficult for Republican candidates to win statewide and national elections, Axios’s Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen note: The single biggest threat to Republicans’ long-term viability is demographics.

Tobias Ellwood told The Times: “The threats we’re facing are changing in front of us, the world is getting more complex. If we are wanting to continue to play this influential role on the international stage it will require further funding for our armed forces, not least the Royal Navy. Our Royal Navy is too small to manage our interests across the globe.” The news comes after it emerged that Tehran had ignored warnings from a British warship against seizing a UK-flagged tanker in the Gulf.
