"I don't think I can keep traveling with the same rhythm I used to at my age and with the limitation of this knee," Pope Francis said to journalists during his return from Canada. Pope Francis is reflecting on his position as head of the Catholic Church. After a six-day visit to Canada, the 85-year-old pontiff told journalists that he may one day step down from the Vatican's top job. "It is not a catastrophe to change Pope, it is not a taboo," Francis told journalists on a flight to Rome the BBC reported.

His resignation might be too little, too late for the Church, considering the immense damage his leftist policies have inflicted.

WRONG! Benedict's stepping down has only brought confusion to Catholicism. Replacing Francis with just a younger version of him could lead to schism. I'll take the Pieta - you take the Sistine Chapel.....

I know a lot of Catholics who won't shed a tear if he does. However, his replacement could be worse - after all, the College of Cardinals pushed out Benedict, and selected Francis, and he's stuffed it with even more leftists, while marginalizing the true catholics.

This worthless ancient communist who protects child molesters in the priesthood will soon not just be stepping down as pope but will also be stepping down through a trapdoor that leads straight to hell where he belongs. Wouldn't get too optimistic about the next pope since Francis the Commie pope has stuffed the college of cardinals who will elect the next pope with his fellow communist comrades. The next one will be worse.

All those American Bishops that cancelled the Traditional Latin Mass because of the Argentinian should start trembling in their boots. What a disaster this Peronista brought to the World. He looks ridiculous in those Indian feathers. I rejoice those Indians were Catechized for there is only one way to Heaven. The Argentinian could have known that if he had only read the Gospel of Mark, where the strong message of Christ is written.

There’s been a lot of professed outrage lately over woke school boards. According to Republican candidates for office, they’re infiltrating children’s curricula with critical race theory, recruiting drag queens to read at story hour for pre-schoolers, and engaging in other forms of — shall we say — “incompetence.” But the real heroes pushing back against left-wing ideologies in government schools are the parents, when it ought to be lawmakers. Outspoken parents in New Jersey made headlines when they protested their school district removing holiday names from the school calendar.

After Dobbs, where can pro-choice advocates look in the Constitution to support abortion? One professor believes she has found the answer in the Thirteenth Amendment, the provision banning slavery that was ratified in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War. Lisa Crooms-Robinson, a professor at Howard University School of Law, reasons out of a wish for Congress to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021. The bill, among other provisions, would codify the abortion protections found in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, both of which the court just overturned. Congress, like the rest of the national government, possesses only the powers given to it by the

Will the radical Left really wish to live by its own novel normality when it loses power?Have leftists ever read Thucydides on the stasis at Corcyra and his warning that zealots who destroy laws, customs, and traditions for short-term gain, soon rue the day they began making such changes when, in vain, they seek refuge in the very sanctuaries of behavior that they have destroyed?  CORRECTION*

On March 9, 2020, Joe Biden — then the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee — described himself as “a bridge” to a new generation of Democratic leaders who are “the future of this country.” As we approach the halfway point in President Biden’s first term, it’s clear the time has come for him to embrace his place in history as a transitional president and resign gracefully. Biden faces record-low approval ratings, an impending red-wave midterm election, renewed concerns about his physical health and cognitive fitness, a failed domestic agenda with no path forward and glaring foreign-policy mistakes. If Republicans capture Congress, he’ll also face questions he can’t answer on his son

Biden is asleep at the wheel and, coupled with Democrats’ disastrous leadership of the House and Senate, gas prices have reached record highs, the cost of food and everyday household goods has skyrocketed, illegal immigrants and deadly drugs are pouring across our open southern border, and crime is surging across the country. All economic indicators point to our nation being in a recession. However, you won’t hear this from Biden or his spin doctors in the White House because they have no plan

Washington Post columnist Megan McArdle dismissed the semantics debate over whether the U.S. was officially in a recession and warned Democrats that such "word churn" about the state of the economy was not an effective political strategy. In her Friday piece, titled, "Enough with the ‘is this a recession?’ blather," McArdle began by asking, "Are we in a recession? Does it even matter?" She noted "that a preliminary Bureau of Economic Analysis report released Thursday shows that the economy contracted at an annualized pace of 0.9 percent in the second quarter, following a decrease of 1.6 percent in the first quarter."

Many business owners will tell you their revenue has returned to pre-COVID numbers, but that the cost to get there has eroded their profits. They are often making do without the manpower they really need, meaning they are personally working unsustainable hours. Many are opting to close.

Brooklyn’s 75th Precinct is rife with fury at the work of police defunders and criminal-justice “reformers.” With 48 shootings and 58 gun victims in 2022 so far, the 75th is the epicenter of the city’s surge in gun violence. Since the start of summer, shootings have doubled over 2021’s rate, harkening back to 1993 when The Post dubbed the precinct New York’s Killing Ground as it saw a murder every 63 hours. This year’s victims have been young and old; many, innocent bystanders sitting on a park bench or standing on the street. The shooters are mostly teens and young men, often engaged in running street battles or wild shootouts

After 11 years, students at George Washington University Law School will register for courses this fall with one notable difference: They will no longer be able to take a seminar with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. The removal of Justice Thomas from the list of lecturers followed a cancel campaign that demanded the university ban him from classrooms. At 74, and looking at an upcoming term of major decisions, Thomas hardly needs the aggravation of such protests. However, his departure (even if temporary) is a great loss to students, the law school and free speech.

As U.S. forces swept through the country, al-Sahhaf made a number of unintentionally comical appearances in front of news cameras to claim that Iraqi forces were actually winning great victories, earning him the nickname “Baghdad Bob.” While al-Sahhaf is now reportedly living a quiet life in the UAE, it seems that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has taken inspiration from the one-time cultural icon in making his own outlandish pronouncements and pushing for still more of the tax and spend legislation

The suspect yelled, “Freeze, hands in the air,” but within seconds, the quick-thinking store owner pulled out his own rifle from under the counter and immediately shot once at the robber, hitting him in the arm.

Open borders activists are balking at red states taking immigration enforcement into their own hands by busing border crossers and illegal aliens to blue states and cities like New York and Washington, DC. In April, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced that state officials would begin chartering buses to transport border crossers and illegal aliens to Washington, DC, and other cities. As a result, Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser is asking President Joe Biden to deploy the National Guard after she said about 4,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have arrived in the region over the last few weeks. Illegal immigration to D.C., Bowser said, is at a “tipping point.”

Jill’s own star has been fading recently, as she stepped on a rake with tacogate and her approval ratings crumbled.
