PizzaGate: The Vatican Connection

Is the Roman Catholic Church involved in Pizzagate? Was a pope murdered because of his knowledge of an elite and secret organization’s connection to pedophilia? Is the current pope dismissing the scandal as fake news because he knows the names involved? Is our government working with the church to cover up the truth? David Zublick breaks it all down in this report!


Holder: Obama is ‘ready to roll’

Barack Obama is getting closer to making his public reappearance in politics, his friend and former Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday.

Holder said he’s been talking to the former president about ways — including fundraising and interacting with state legislators — that could help the new National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which Obama asked Holder to chair last year.

“It’s coming. He’s coming,” Holder said, speaking to reporters at a briefing for the new group. “And he’s ready to roll.”

Throughout, Holder said, Obama “will be a more visible part of the effort.”


E.U. Pressured from Inside and Out, Considers a Reboot

With the European Union encountering trouble on every corner, Britain laying the groundwork to become the first member state to leave and populist movements vying for power in core member states like France and the Netherlands, it is now the bloc itself that is in crisis.


The Radical Islam Bits of Trump’s Congress Speech

U.S. President Donald Trump addressed Congress February 28 – the first time since taking office. Here are the parts of his speech that addressed radical Islam interspersed with video comments from our in-house experts.


Crowd Bangs Pots & Pans Outside White House During Trump Speech

I wonder who could possibly be behind the noisy protest, which took place outside the US White House while President Donald Trump was delivering his first address to Congress, with dozens of activists banging pots and pans while chanting “No more Trump!’


Muslim Brotherhood: We’re Spending $5 Million on PR in U.S.

A senior Muslim Brotherhood official in Sudan told an Arab newspaper* that the group’s international leadership has launched a major PR campaign to influence the U.S. media and members of Congress to oppose the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

The Brotherhood official predicted that the group would not be designated by the Trump Administration and that the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act introduced into Congress would fail.


Hot Mic Catches Town Hall Protest Organizers Coaching Protesters to ‘Dominate’ & ‘Dress Like Conservatives’

There’s been a lot of shade thrown on reports that the protesters showing up at Republican lawmakers’ town halls have been organized, but a leaked audio tape may flip the script on all of that.

CNN opinion commentator Errol Louis has called the GOP “delusion[al]” if some Congressional representatives believe that astroturf protesters have been organized to go to town halls to defend Obamacare and other issues at these meetings.

Politifact has “fact checked” the claim that town hall protesters have been paid and found “no evidence.”

And now this.

KPEL Radio in Lafayette, Louisiana, received an audio tape of an organizational meeting by town hall protest organizers days before a town hall meeting in Breaux Bridge:


Apostasy Watch: Glitter Ash Welcomes ‘Gay Christians’ to Celebrate Lent

First, CoverGirl dubs its first cover boy, complete with glittery makeup. Now, pastors across the nation are mixing purple glitter into ashes for Ash Wednesday.

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent in the Western church world. It’s a liturgical practice marked by fasting, prayer and sacrifice that starts 46 days before Easter.

“I think it’s really important for the church to respond to the intolerance and culture of fear that is being created especially toward LGBTQ people,” April Gutierrez, pastor of Berry United Methodist, told the Chicago Tribune. Ash Wednesday, she told the paper, is a moment for believers to remember who they are called to be as Christians.

Some are calling this blasphemy, but Marian Edmonds-Allen, executive director of a faith-based organization that works to empower LGBT and allied people, disagrees.


Assange’s fate hangs on thin election hope in Ecuador

His name isn’t on the ballot, but Julian Assange’s fate may be in the hands of voters in a country an ocean away from his legal sanctuary in the Ecuadorean Embassy in the heart of one of London’s ritziest neighborhoods.

When voters in Ecuador cast their ballots in the presidential runoff next month, they will choose between two radically different candidates vying to lead their nation of 16 million — and determine the fate of the WikiLeaks founder, a middle-aged Australian who has never lived a day in the South American country.

Opposition candidate Guillermo Lasso has said that, if elected, he would “cordially ask” Mr. Assange to leave the mission “within 30 days,” citing the costs of putting him up.

Mr. Assange has lived at Ecuador’s London embassy since 2012 to evade extradition to Sweden


Face-biter Said He Fled Demon-like Figure Before Killings

A Florida college student accused of randomly killing a couple in their garage and chewing on the dead man’s face told television psychologist Phil McGraw he was fleeing a demon-like figure named Daniel and only had a vague recollection of the slayings.

In a 22-minute interview released Tuesday by prosecutors, Austin Harrouff said he lost his wits as he walked back to his father’s home after storming out of a restaurant where they had an argument.

McGraw asked about “the devil talking to you,” and Harrouff went on to describe a “dark figure” he called Daniel.

“I got scared out of my mind,” Harrouff told McGraw, who interviewed him by computer when the former high school wrestler and football player was still hospitalized last fall.

Harrouff, 20, was arrested upon release from the hospital for the Aug. 15 deaths of John Stevens, a 59-year-old landscaper, and his wife, Michelle Mishcon, 53. Both had been beaten and stabbed. He could face the death penalty if convicted of murder.

Just when we thought we were done with that scourge on America, Obama comes back to make us miserable again. At the first sign of trouble President Trump needs to send out a warrant for his arrest. Obama is a rank traitor and everyone knows it,
