Below are articles dealing with abortion - which I would think the Pope would find near and dear to his heart - but as far as I can tell he’s not addressed abortion. He’s made nice with the last socialist mass murderer left in the world - Fidel Castro - and never said a word about the incredible lack of justice in Cuba’s legal system, yet he visits a prison in America to highlight they’re overcrowded because these “poor” prisoners can’t afford bail. No mention is made of whether or not these prisoners deserve to be there or not.
He makes all warm and nice with a President that has in effect insulted him, his church and Christian doctrine by deliberately inviting a “rogue’s gallery of people opposed to Catholic teachin.” “In a stunning show of political indecorum, Obama has invited a series of individuals who publicly flout Catholic teaching, including a pro-abortion religious sister, a transgender woman and the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, along with at least two Catholic gay activists. “ And as far as I can tell – he’s said nothing!
As far as I can tell he’s not mentioned – at least publically – anything about the persecution and murder of Christians in Muslim controlled lands, which amounts to genocide - genocide prescribed in the Koran.
So I have to wonder why the Pope’s here at all! I have to wonder what’s wrong with this man’s mind! I also seriously wonder about his sanity! No wonder I keep hearing Catholics ask – Who picked this guy?
Pope Sings the Praises of Obama’s Global Warming Agenda - Pope Francis was quick to praise President Barack Obama’s plan to fight global warming during a Wednesday morning speech at the White House.

The Climate Skeptic’s Guide To Pope Francis’ U.S. Visit: Talking Points About The Pope andGlobal Warming - Get Your Climate Skeptic's Guide To the Pope's Visit. No Visit is Complete Without One! Highlights: 'When the Pope speaks on climate change, he is not speaking authoritatively on Catholic doctrine. He is merely offering his opinion.' Scientist: 'Most of the scientific claims cited in Pope’s encyclical are not true.' 'There has been nothing short of an 'Unholy Alliance' between the Vatican and promoters of man-made climate fear. The Vatican advisors can only be described as a brew of anti-capitalist, pro-population control advocates' 'If the pope from 300 years ago could see our world today, he'd say it was actually cleaner and healthier than his own era.' 'The Vatican is aligning itself with a UN climate agenda that is at odds with major aspects of Catholic teachings and doctrine.'
Pro-Life Activist Shares Heartbreaking Story of Love and Loss - Abby Johnson is a former Planned Parenthood executive who left the abortion industry after watching a baby in the womb struggle to survive during an abortion.

Senator Mike Lee Goes to Battle Against Planned Parenthood - Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) has become one of the GOP’s most important voices on policy and philosophy, which should be of great concern to liberal members of Congress and Planned Parenthood. Over the last few weeks, Senator Lee has begun his own personal crusade to unmask the crimes and immorality of Planned Parenthood, and now he needs your help. “In coming weeks I plan to deliver a series of speeches that might help my colleagues and anyone else who might be listening come a little closer to the truth about Planned Parenthood.”

Conservatives Have Unlikely Ally in Arguing Reconciliation Cannot Be Used to Defund Planned Parenthood - A scholar at the Brookings Institution, a left-of-center think tank, is joining conservatives in questioning whether reconciliation can be used to defund Planned Parenthood.
Barack Obama Lies to the Pope’s Face- I’m writing a book on this right now and it is very clear that Barack Obama flat out lied in the Pope’s face today. Listen to a part of what Barack Obama said to Pope Francis about religious liberty. In fact, the President and his administration have been deeply, deeply hostile to Christians in the United States. Remember, just a few years ago, the Obama Administration took a position to the left of the American Civil Liberties Union arguing that there was no ministerial exception in the First Amendment. The case involved a Lutheran denomination that sought to define the role of its ministers. The President’s team argued that there is a freedom of worship, which was actually not nearly as expansive as a freedom of religion. The Supreme Court in a 9 to 0 decision disagreed….
The Democrat’s Jackolope - With the left’s favorite Pope in town, the media has been giddy pointing out that Francis puts Republicans in awkward positions on global warming, the environment, capitalism, etc. Meanwhile, the Catholic Church has started leasing lands it owns in Texas for oil drilling. What the media is ignoring, of course, is that Francis and the...
The Climate of Climate Change - Climate change has been a subject that has bounced back and forth with both sides bringing out facts and figures to substantiate the claims they make. One side puts forth apocalyptic scenarios, and the other side claims there is no merit to those claims. Politics and money play a large part in the battle. Grants are given to both sides and the common man is deluged with the findings that those grants were meant to find. So let’s take a look at the information available from both sides and try to see what the ultimate truth is.... Still the religion of climate change is being pushed upon the American people. There are various reasons for this. One is the effective use of climate change as a mean to redistribute wealth.
Keystone pipeline is a "distraction" from climate action, Clinton says - Hillary Rodham Clinton said on Tuesday that she opposed building the Keystone XL oil pipeline, revealing her position on an issue that divides two Democratic constituencies, organized labor and environmentalists, and that she has long declined to address……. There are “a lot more jobs from my perspective on a North American clean energy agenda than you would ever get from one pipeline crossing the border,” she said…
My Take – Here’s another corrupt loon at the center of the information world. She has to know Spain committed themselves to the “green” energy fantasy and the creation of “green jobs”. and for every green job they created they lost 2.2 jobs. Needless to say they abandoned that insanity. If “green” initiatives and policies fail everywhere else in the world, why would we believe it would be successful here? We need to get this - to be green is to be irrational, misanthropic and morally defective, none of which is new to Hillary Clinton, her husband, or the entire community of the left.
The Hillary Factor - Trust is Irrelevant to Some - Last week I had occasion to speak with a colleague about the current political campaign circus. The colleague in question is a lawyer and a seemingly intelligent person. But for some reason she is an ardent supporter of Hillary Clinton. This support seems insupportable in light of the...
Dozens of Mergers Among Hospitals and Medical Practices is the Side Effect of Obamacare - Five years after the Affordable Care Act helped set off a health-care merger frenzy, the pace of consolidation is accelerating, transforming the medical marketplace into a land of giants. The trend is under a new spotlight now, as Congress zeroes in on the competitive and cost impact of proposed deals that would collapse the health-insurance industry’s top five players into just three massive companies, each with more than $100 billion in annual revenue. ... The supersizing, which hasn’t been slowed so far by signals of regulatory concern about health-care consolidation, reflects efforts by companies in both industries to gain the scale and heft to succeed amid changes unleashed or accelerated by the health law. Those include growing pressures to constrain costs, and new forms of payment that require providers to meet efficiency and care-quality goals. Health systems are adding hospitals, doctor practices and a range of other services that enable them to manage all of a patient’s care. And each industry is bulking up to amass leverage in contract negotiations against the other.
Workers Increasingly Burdened by Rising Health Care Costs - American workers saw their out-of-pocket medical costs jump again this year, as the average deductible for an employer-provided health plan surged nearly 9% in 2015 to more than $1,000, a major new survey of employers shows. The annual increase, though lower than in previous years, far outpaced wage growth and overall inflation and marked the continuation of a trend that in just a few years has dramatically shifted healthcare costs to workers. Over the past decade, the average deductible that workers must pay for medical care before their insurance kicks in has more than tripled from $303 in 2006 to $1,077 today, according to the report from the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research & Educational Trust. That is seven times faster than wages have risen in the same period.
U.S. Paid Healthcare.govcontractor Four Million to Fix its own Mess - The U.S. government paid the main healthcare.gov contractor $4 million to correct defects of the botched site and withheld only $267,420 of what it owed the company, according to a new federal audit. The report on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and its contract with CGI Federal is to be published today by the Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General. It is the latest in a series of audits critical of federal oversight of the private companies that built the insurance marketplace at the heart of Obamacare.
California Ballot Initiative Would Increase Income Taxes to Pay For Health Care Programs - On Monday, a coalition of health and youth advocacy groups proposed a ballot initiative to expand and make permanent income tax increases on California’s highest earners to help fund several health care and education programs, the Sacramento Bee’s Capitol Alert reports. ... The proposed ballot initiative seeks to extend increased income taxes under Proposition 30, which were set to expire at the end of 2018. However, the measure would allow Prop. 30’s sales tax increase to expire in 2016, as scheduled. Like Prop. 30, the proposed ballot measure would: Increase taxes for couples earning at least $580,000 annually; and Impose higher tax rates for super-earner couples that earn more than $2 million per year. According to Capitol Alert, the plan would generate an estimated $10 billion in revenue annually, with: 50% of the generated funds going to K-14 education; and 40% of the generated funds being used to increase provider reimbursements under Medi-Cal, California….
No, America Was Not Founded on Racist Principles - Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., told an audience at Liberty University that the United States was founded "on racist principles." He's wrong.
My Take – Now here’s the biggest loon of them all. The difference between Bernie, Hillary and the rest of the left field is he actually believes the clabber he spews out. At least he’s an honest loon!
US Must Leverage Aid to Stop Child Sexual Abuse Among Afghan Security Officials - From both a moral and legal standpoint, the U.S. must ensure that its assistance is not going to individuals or groups involved in committing human rights abuses, especially against minors.
Feds Push $5.3 Billion In Regulatory Costs With Just 3 New Regulations - The Obama administration were busy last week pushing regulations that will cost the American businesses and consumers more than $5.3 billion and 7.7 million hours in paperwork burdens, according to a report. A report by the right-leaning American Action Forum found that last week “regulators managed to add another $5.3 billion in burdens” and “imposed 7.7 million paperwork burden hours.” While last week’s regulatory burden was lower than the preceding week’s $14 billion price tag, it shows how the cost of new rules are quickly adding up.
Actor from Hercules TV Show Rips Obama for Taking in Muslim "Refugees" - Kevin Sorbo made a name for himself playing the legendary hero, Hercules, on Television. Now, he’s playing another heroic role in attempting to protect our nation by calling out the Obama administration’s reckless decision to accept 10,000 Muslim refugees in the very near future. On his Facebook page this past week, Sorbo declared that Obama’s decision to accept these refugees without first vetting them was reckless, especially when the other Muslim Gulf States had yet to accept even one refugee.
The Media, GOP and Democrat Establishment Should Stop Complaining about Trump because They Created Him - The National Journal’s Ron Fournier made an interesting appearance on Fox News’ Media Buzz with media ombudsmen Howard Kurtz. During the interview Fournier argued that it was ridiculous for the media and the establishment of both parties to criticize and complain about Donald Trump because they are the reason for his existence as a political force. Ron Fournier: The establishment made Donald Trump. The establishment in the Republican party, the establishment in even the Democratic party, and certainly the media establishment. We have all let down voters. Voters are upset with the political and media elite. They’ve created this huge vacuum for somebody to step in and satiate people’s hunger. So, it kind of starts with a let down on our part, but then it gets more complicated after that.
