Pope Francis on Sunday scolded countries that produce weapons for wars fought elsewhere and then refuse to take in refugees fleeing the very same conflicts. The 82-year-old Argentine pope, whose parents were of Italian immigrant stock, has made the defense of migrants and refugees a plank of his pontificate and he has often clashed over immigration policy with US President Donald Trump and populist anti-immigrant politicians in Europe.

He is the very definition of "idiot."

I get it, if you are a country that produces guns, but does not accept refugees (which seem to be anyone who wants in) Then how will these people arm themselves in order to carry out their business in a country where citizens are allowed to arm themselves?

How many refugees are allowed into the Vatican? How about giving up some of the pomp and circumstance which surrounds the Pope and give it to the refugees. Whenever I see pictures of Catholic churches and cathedrals, I see lots of gold and expensive statues and art. Why not sell all of that and give it to the poor? Start practicing what you preach.

#7, setting aside its refusal to house the world's refugee's within a 0.17 square mile area, it's hard to deny the fact that the Catholic Church - regardless of who sits in the chair of Peter - certainly practices what it preaches in terms of supporting the poor, the homeless, the hungry. It is the largest charitable organization in the world, in fact. The reality is that a church, just like people, can both 1) have wealth as well as 2) minister generously to the needy. Burning down the henhouse won't get you more eggs.

This anti-pope is no idiot. He is a dangerous man. That fact will be increasingly on display for the next few weeks during the Amazon synod. I encourage my fellow ldotters to seek information from reputable sites like Lifesite News, Church Militant and Taylor Marshall on YouTube for what might be world wide repercussions in the Church. For all you anti-Catholic bigots, don't get your hopes up. The Church will survive as Jesus promised, though it might have to go underground. Prophesy is being fulfilled. Fatima, Akita and Leo XIII.

Yea, our guns are a big problem until you need us. Guns were a problem in Great Britain until Herr Schicklegruber came a calling then the American patriots and sportsmen gladly sent their spare guns off the the open and grateful arms of our British brothers who discovered they had built their house out of straw. You might want to examine why you aren't speaking Deutsche there comrade Pope. You might also want to explore the correlation between those that want to confiscate guns and those who want to eliminate the Christian faith. Clue: it's a 100% correlation. What do you make of that

With all due respect to Catholics, the Pope was not elected to any office anywhere and he is certainly not setting policy in the US. So he can save his scolding for his own flock and leave the rest of us alone.

Unless he dies, the changes in dogma will come... give it time. Of course the next "pope" will probably be an openly gay or transgendered communist if this trend continues. I hold out little hope the lavender mafia that controls the Vatican will listen to the will of God in any matter much less the appointing of a pope. And this pope is stacking the Cardinal deck to make sure his successor is equally corrupt and ungodly.

The Pope is not the vicar of Christ on earth as we were taught in Catechism. What the Catholic Left did to Pope Benedict reminds me of what the American Left in this country is trying to do to President Trump. The only thing is the American people will not let it happen.

#12, the Catholic Church is not generous with its own money, it's the money donated by it's millions of members that is uses to receive credit for its generosity. Just like the government does. In return for those donations, the people expect that money to be used wisely, not to sit in the Vatican's vaults and provide church leadership with a lavish lifestyle. Bishops wearing expensive clothes and riding around in black limousines send exactly the wrong message. My childhood priest had a new Jeep, a red Riviera, a boat and went hunting and fishing in Canada while presiding over small towns full of coal miners. Not cool. It reeks of Communism. Look at the countries that accept refugees and whose populace is not armed. France, Germany, Britain and the rest of the euros are overwhelmed with crime, rape, robbery and murder. Is that what Catholics really want? That philosophy does not fit my family.

Republicans have had their differences these past few years. Most have supported President Trump; a few have not. Some of the president’s supporters have been enthusiastic; many have not. Some of the reluctant Trump supporters have expressed reservations at certain times; many have not. But with the revelations of the last week, and the launch of a formal impeachment inquiry, we are at a new moment.

Britain's Ambassador to Washington has described Donald Trump as 'inept', 'insecure' and 'incompetent' in a series of explosive memos to Downing Street. Sir Kim Darroch, one of Britain's top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump's character, warning London that the White House was 'uniquely dysfunctional' and that the President's career could end in 'disgrace'. His bombshell comments risk angering the notoriously thin-skinned President and undermining the UK's 'special relationship' with America.

An Arkansas woman is suing the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, alleging that he is the father of her baby. Thus far, she’s been unable to serve him with the papers, her attorney said. Lunden Alexis Roberts filed a petition for paternity and child support against Robert Hunter Biden in Independence County on May 28, days after Hunter Biden reportedly married another woman in California. The two-page suit states that Roberts and Hunter Biden “were in a relationship” and that “Baby Doe” was born in August 2018 “as a result of that relationship.” It doesn’t say how or where they met or offer other personal details.

With a deadline for nearly 30 cases looming and weighty issues of religion, gerrymandering and the 2020 census pending, Chief Justice John Roberts took his black leather chair at the bench this week and said three decisions were ready to be announced. It was a paltry total for a week in June, the final month of the annual session. What's more, two of the three were by unanimous votes and none made big headlines. But the term won't end this way. And much of the weight of this momentous session is on Roberts' shoulders.

Romney wrote, in a statement posted to Twitter, that it was “good news” Mueller’s team found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election. “The business of government can move on,” he said. “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney continued.

Chelsea Clinton’s current strategy for selling her latest book is to attack President Donald Trump. After already targeting the president on Twitter, she had more to say while appearing on “The View.” “He’s the greatest scam in American political history,” she said, adding that “his whole life has been a scam.” Chelsea was appearing on the program with her mother Hillary, who co-wrote the new book with her daughter. Chelsea previously got attention for replying to a tweet the president sent out calling the impeachment inquiry into his phone call with the Ukrainian president “the greatest scam in the history of American politics.”

The column opens by noting that “the criminal behavior to which Trump has admitted is much more grave than anything alleged or unearthed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and much of what Mueller revealed was impeachable,” before outlining the specifics of the Ukraine scandal currently presenting an existential threat to his administration.

The great triumph of recent American politics is for the people of your fine country to have elected as president a man who is the precise embodiment of what supercilious Europeans think Americans are really like. Pig-ignorant, arrogant, jingoistic, contemptuous of foreigners, loud-mouthed, badly dressed and irredeemably bumptious. So consuming is the European antipathy toward Donald Trump — he’s never read a book! He eats steak with ketchup! — that it afflicts leading politicians across our continent, people who would be better advised to button it a while and show a little bit of diplomacy to the leader of the free world. But they can’t: the contempt always bleeds through.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff is in damage control mode after the New York Times reported that he learned about the Deep State CIA spy’s accusations against President Trump several days before the officer filed a whistleblower complaint. The Deep State spook filed a complaint on August 12 based on second-hand knowledge and hearsay of Trump’s July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, so Schiff had knowledge of the accusations and worked discreetly for up to two weeks.Schiff is now claiming he has never met with or spoken to the whistleblower — in fact, Schiff is claiming he doesn’t even know the identity of the whistleblower!

The tactic is meant to make it more difficult for police to identify those who break the law during a riot.“Trump is having a campaign rally in downtown Minneapolis. He wants to keep America great, but… AMERICA IS CANCELED,” the call to action posted on a popular Antifa website declared.

"Have you heard from the whistleblower?" MSNBC contributor Sam Stein asked House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on September 17, nine days before the complaint was released to the public. "We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower," Schiff responded at the time, never mentioning that one of his committee staffers had directly spoken to the whistleblower -- and that the staffer "shared some of what the [whistleblower] conveyed" with Schiff, according to the New York Times. The New York Times says the staffer referred the whistleblower to a (Democrat-connected) attorney to help him file a formal complaint with the intelligence community inspector general.

First, it is likely that President Donald Trump violated some cockamamie administrative rule when he recently spoke with the new Ukrainian president about the potential corrupt dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in Ukraine. Fine. Can’t Trump just pay a fine or something? Yes, he should’ve been more careful (and he needs to tell Rudy Giuliani to calm down, as the former mayor risks perjuring himself before not one, but three Congressional committees). What Trump did was the equivalent of going 15 mph over the speed limit in rural Georgia: it happens. Rarely does anyone notice. Ignorance is still not a viable legal defense.

If the Trump administration continues to not cooperate with Congressional investigations, the president could be impeached on that alone, top Democrats threatened on Wednesday. Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff reaffirmed Democrats’ new stance that they’ll consider any resistance from the administration as “further evidence of obstruction.” “Of course that was an article of impeachment against President Nixon,” the California Democrat said. For his part, Mr. Trump said Wednesday he was willing to go along with Democrats, but it’s not clear how far that cooperation will extend.

The photo shows the 6-year-old girl, who is biracial and has autism, posing with an actor dressed as the movie character Gru from "Despicable Me" during a Universal Orlando breakfast event attended by the Zinger family in March. The character formed an upside-down "OK" symbol with his fingers, recognized by some as a hate symbol, on the girl's shoulder, according to a photo and video reviewed by USA TODAY.

A charity event planned in honor of an officer killed in a 2018 mass shooting at a country music bar in in Southern California has been postponed indefinitely -- reportedly because a police chief didn't want Republicans invited. The Blue Bowl, a charity flag football game, was intended to raise money for the family of fallen Ventura County Sgt. Ron Helus as well as other officers killed in the line of duty, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported. Helus died last Nov. 7, when a 28-year-old suspect allegedly attacked the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, killing a total of 13 people and wounding about a dozen others.
