Two Papal aides attack conservative Christians and Steve Bannon

Two aides of Pope Francis have attacked American conservative Christians and Steve Bannon (President Trump’s aide) as promoters of “apocalyptic geopolitics.”

In the article, Jesuit Father Antonio Spadaro, the editor-in-chief of the quasi-official Vatican periodical La Civiltà Cattolica, slams conservative Christians in the U.S. as “ignorant, theocratic, Manichean, war-mongering fanatics.” Steve Bannon, Spadaro suggests, is part of a dangerous “fringe group” of U.S. Christians who seek to bring about a theocratic Christian state, wiping away America’s healthy secularism.

Bannon is not only an anti-Pope Francis, Jesuit Father James Martin alleged, “I would also say he is an anti-Pope Benedict and an anti-Pope John Paul.  All these people were about economic justice.”  Father James (editor of the Jesuit-run America magazine) and recently tapped by Pope Francis as a consultor to the Vatican’s communications department.

Father Martin claims that Jesus Christ does not share Steve Bannon’s view of Catholicism as the “Church militant,” which he said is a synonym of “radical traditionalists.” Father Spadaro also picked up the topic of the “Church militant,” associating the term with an outlying group by the same name.

Meanwhile, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI said on Saturday that the Catholic Church is a boat “on the verge of capsizing” in a personal message for the funeral Mass of his close friend, Cardinal Joachim Meisner.  The retired Pope delivered the message in writing, and had it read aloud in the Cologne Cathedral by his personal secretary, Archbishop Georg Gänswein, who also serves as Prefect of the Papal Household for Pope Francis.

Cardinal Meisner was one of the four cardinals who presented a series of questions, or “dubia,” to Pope Francis last September, asking him to clarify five serious doctrinal doubts proceeding from his 2016 apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love) concerning Holy Communion for the divorced and remarried, the indissolubility of marriage, and the proper role of conscience.

The other three prelates who submitted the questions to the Pope were Cardinal Raymond Burke, patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta; Carlo Caffarra, archbishop emeritus of Bologna; and Walter Brandmüller, president emeritus of the Pontifical Committee for Historical Sciences.  When Pope Francis failed to respond to the dubia, the four cardinals published their questions publicly last November.

900 Cars burned in migrant suburbs during President Trump’s visit to Paris

Some 13 security force members (police officers and soldiers) were hurt and 897 cars burned during President Donald Trump’s visit to France for national Bastille Day celebrations in Paris on July 13-14.

“Our security forces have been the target of intolerable attacks in the course of several episodes of urban violence,” said Pierre-Henry Brandet, the spokesman for the Ministry of the Interior.  “It is thanks to the large mobilization of our security forces that there has been a significant reduction of the number of violent incidents, especially those involving fighting on the streets.”

The number of cars burned during Bastille Day festivities rose slightly from 2016, when 855 vehicles were torched, but the number of people arrested last year  — 577  — was far higher.

In July last year, one day after a Catholic priest was murdered by Islamic terrorists, Mr Trump declared “France is no longer France,” lamenting the spate of terror attacks in the European nation.

Court rules that government officials cannot open sessions with prayer

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit issued a 10-5 decision on Friday ruling that Rowan County, N.C., county commissioners cannot begin official sessions with prayer.

The U.S. Court of Appeals decision ignored the Supreme Court’s Town of Greece v. Galloway decision that deemed an opening prayer for legislative bodies acceptable under the Constitution.

Writing in dissent, Circuit Judge G. Steven Agee stated:  “Lawmaker-led prayer finds contemporary validation in the federal government as well.  Both houses of Congress allow members to deliver an opening invocation. The congressional record is replete with examples of legislators commencing legislative business with a prayer.”

  1. Harvie Wilkinson III wrote for the majority. “The prayer practice served to identify the government with Christianity and risked conveying to citizens of minority faiths a message of exclusion. And because the commissioners were the exclusive prayer-givers, Rowan County’s invocation practice falls well outside the more inclusive, minister-oriented practice of legislative prayer described in Town of Greece,” Wilkinson wrote.

Supporters of the plaintiff’s case  included: Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the American Humanist Association, Anti-Defamation League, and the Freedom from Religion Foundation.

Arguing on behalf of the commissioners was First Liberty Institute which was joined by other religious liberty advocates, including the United States Justice Foundation, the Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund and several states — West Virginia, Alabama, Arizona, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas.

There are currently only three judges on the Fourth Circuit who are conservative. Two of the liberal judges — William Byrd Traxler Jr. and  Albert Diaz — joined the conservatives for the five dissenting votes.

Attorney Jay Sekulow defends President Trump on five Sunday talk shows

Jay.sekulow

Jay Sekulow, the chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, and an attorney for Donald Trump, was the President’s spokesperson for interviews on all five Sunday news/talk shows (ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox, and NBC)  reporting on possible Russian collusion (with staff or family, such as Donald Trump, Jr.).

ABC:  “The Mueller investigation is a witchhunt.  How did it start?  James Comey takes notes, leaks those documents to a friend with the sole purpose to leak to the New York Times with the hopes of getting a special counsel which he did.”

CBS:  (Reference to Donald Trump, Jr.):  “Opposition research happens all the time.  The Ukranians did the same thing with the Clinton campaign during the middle of the campaign.”

CNN:   “Why was there no investigation of the Clintons who had an exchange of documents with a foreign government?”

Fox:  “Nothing happened (with Donald Trump, Jr.).  The basis of his meeting was emails.  There is no violation of statues.   Where is the collusion?  You are colluding to violate what law?”

NBC:  “There is no illegal act.  There is no trigger for an investigation.  Donald Trump, Jr. will cooperate.  But what law has been violated.  A meeting is not a violation of any law or code.”

Clinton Foundation quiet about foreign policy meeting with United Nations

Breitbart News has reported on a meeting that took place last week between the Clinton Foundation’s head of foreign policy and the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General.

Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed met Friday with the Clinton Foundation’s director of foreign policy Amitabh Desai. The meeting was first noticed by UN blog Inner City Press, in a one-line entry on Mohammed’s schedule.

A spokesman for Secretary-General António Guterres told Breitbart News on Friday that the meeting, which took place at the UN headquarters in New York City, was “part of the ongoing effort to engage and mobilize support from different development partners and stakeholders for the implementation of the 2030 Development Agenda.”

The 2030 Agenda is the UN’s main push for its “sustainable development” goals. These goals are intended to broadly solve global problems such as poverty and inequality while doing so in a way that also combats climate change.

According to Breitbart News, while such meetings on sustainable development are not uncommon, a question mark will always hang over the dealings of the Clinton Foundation considering its links not only with the Clintons, but also past accusations of pay-to-play involving the foundation’s dealings. It also raises concerns about the United Nations — which has shown an anti-Trump bias on a number of occasions — allowing top officials to rub shoulders with officials from the foundation belonging to Trump’s 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.

Secretary-General Guterres, in particular, has criticized the U.S. decision to leave the Paris Climate treaty, while the High Commissioner for Human Rights has compared Trump to ISIS. One of Guterres’ advisers is economist Jeffrey Sachs, who has called Trump an “idiot” over the decision to abandon the Paris deal, and previously called him a “non-stop font of lies.”

Schwarzenegger praises GOP Assembly leader for cap-and-trade vote;

Deputy Assembly Leader resigns in protest

Aarnold Schwarzenegger

Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger praised Republican State Assembly Leader Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley) on Tuesday, after Mayes led a handful of Republicans to cross party lines and vote to extend the state’s cap-and-trade program.

Schwarzenegger praised Mayes on Twitter and Facebook for “for following in the footsteps of great Republicans like Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan.” Mayes returned the compliment: “Change agents like you have paved the way for others seeking to make our world a better place to live. Thank you for your friendship.”

Roosevelt, an avid hunter and outdoorsman, pioneered many of the nation’s conservation programs.  Reagan is credited today by climate change activists with supporting a cap-and-trade system in the Montreal Protocol to restrict the global use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which destroy the ozone layer.

In the case of cap-and-trade for carbon emissions, there is no global trading system in place, no way to substitute completely for fossil fuels, and no direct link between carbon dioxide and specific environmental impacts.

Still, Mayes touted cap-and-trade as a conservative policy: “We believe that markets are better than Soviet-style command and control. We believe that markets are better than the government coercing people into doing things that they don’t want to do. We believe that businesses in California want to do the right thing, which is why we supported cap and trade,” Mayes said on Monday after the vote on the legislation, according to Calmatters.org.

Those arguments are familiar from the initial debate over cap-and-trade in the 1990s, when President Bill Clinton supported cap-and-trade as an alternative to the command-and-control policies that European nations favored to restrict carbon dioxide emissions.

In the two decades since cap-and-trade emerged as an idea, the most important emissions reductions have not come through government policy, but through technological innovation and a movement away from coal and toward natural gas, especially through hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) — which, ironically, environmentalists oppose.

Seven Republicans in the State Assembly followed Mayes in voting for the ten-year cap-and-trade extension, as did one Republican in the State Senate. The defection gave Governor Jerry Brown the two-thirds majority he needed to shield the law from legal challenges.

Though cap-and-trade in California has had no impact on global climate, Brown sees it as a way to set a global example of leadership that he hopes will one day lead to a global system of reducing fossil fuel emissions. Brown told legislators last week that “organized human existence” was at stake in passing the cap-and-trade bill.

(Editor’s Note:  Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore), who had served as the deputy to Assembly Republican Leader Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley), resigned her leadership post on Thursday in protest against Mayes’ vote for Governor Jerry Brown’s “cap-and-trade” extension bill.

“Californians are struggling to make ends meet, and unfortunately, what I have witnessed by the Assembly Republican Leader is a dereliction of duty to preserve and promote the American Dream for every single Californian,” she said in a statement quoted by the Los Angeles Times.

“Assemblyman Mayes’ actions on cap-and-trade demonstrate we no longer share the same leadership principles,” she continued. “I was elected by the people of my district to fight for a more affordable and decent California, a place where every Californian knows their child will have a better life than their own. Regrettably, I can no longer, in good conscience, serve as the Assistant Republican Leader.”)

Antifa Leader Arrested in California for June 2016 Sacramento Riot

The California Highway Patrol announced the arrest Wednesday of Yvonne Felarca, a.k.a. Yvette Felarca, a leader in the so-called “Antifa” (anti-fascist) movement, on charges related to a June 2016 riot in Sacramento.

Seven people were sent to the hospital with stab wounds, two with life-threatening injuries, on Sunday afternoon as Black Bloc anarchists attacked and fought with white supremacist groups outside the state Capitol in Sacramento. Several other demonstrators who managed to avoid the hospital suffered bruises after the groups engaged in a chaotic melee.

The Black Bloc activists were part of a militant leftist “anti-fascist” group,”Antifa Sacramento.” The right-wing extremists were members of the Traditionalist Worker Party and the Golden State Skinheads, and were holding a permitted rally.

Members of “anti-fascist” groups like the ones who attacked protesters have also been responsible for a number of attacks around the country, including attacks on Donald Trump supporters at recent rallies. Some of these attacks follow hyperbolic allegations by some on the left (and even some on the right, such as Glenn Beck) that Donald Trump is “Hitler.”

Felarca is well-known in the Bay Area as the leader and public face of the radical militant group By Any Means Necessary, which did not return calls from the Associated Press for comment on her arrest.

She was one of the organizers behind the riot against then-Breitbart News tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California Berkeley in February. She said at the time that she had “no regrets” about the violence that resulted on campus: “Milo Yiannopoulos is a fascist. He’s a white supremacist. He’s funded by Steve Bannon and Breitbart. He’s an accolade of Donald Trump. And he was on the UC Berkeley campus to try to recruit more fascists and to wage attacks on Muslim students, immigrant students, women and trans students.”

‘It’s Time To Call Out the Obamacare Republicans’

Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, challenged his national audience to “call out the Obamacare Republicans” even as President Donald Trump was meeting with GOP Senators at the White House with a message of “repeal and replace.  “I’m sitting in oval office with a pen in my hand waiting.”

President Trump on Wednesday told Republican senators he doesn’t want Congress to leave Washington for the August recess until lawmakers pass a health care bill.

“Frankly, I don’t think we should leave town unless we have a health insurance plan, unless we can give our people great health care,” Trump said during lunch with senators at the White House. “Because we’re close. We’re very close.” 

GOP Senators thinking of supporting Obamacare and “shooting down” its repeal can be contacted through the U.S. Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121 or by calling their direct lines at the Capitol:

  • Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski: (202) 224-6665
  • Kansas Senator Jerry Moran: (202) 224-6521
  • Maine Senator Susan Collins: (202) 224-2523
  • Nevada Senator Dean Heller: (202) 224-6244
  • Ohio Senator Rob Portman: (202) 224-3353
  • Utah Senator Mike Lee: (202) 224-5444
  • West Virginia Senator Shelley Moore Capito: (202) 224-6472

The vote most likely will be scheduled next Tuesday.   However, all the above U.S. Senators (except for Senator Susan Collins) voted in 2015 to repeal Obamacare knowing that President Barack Obama would veto such an action.  Both Nevada Senator Dean Heller and Ohio Senator Rob Portman face election contests in 2018 with Senator Heller running in a state which Hillary Clinton won.  Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, West Virgina Senator Shelley Moore Capito, and Maine Senator Susan Collins will have terms finished in 2020.  Both Utah Senator Mike Lee and Kansas Senator Jerry Moran ran in 2016 on an anti-Obamacare platform. 

Sekulow tweeted Tuesday, “Was the 2015 vote repealing Obamacare a real vote or an election vote?”  Sekulow, said, “If these Republicans do not repeal Obama care they show they can’t be trusted.  Repeal or be replaced. What is the point of electing Republicans, if they betray their constituents.”

The U.S. Senate is scheduled to take a six-week recess beginning July 29th.   The GOP has a 52-48 margin but all the Democrats are unified in wanting to keep President Barack Obama’s legacy healthcare legislation.

Ohio Senator Rob Portman’s web site in the 2016 campaign said:  “Senator Rob Portman believes that Obamacare must be repealed and replaced with reforms that will actually lower costs and improve the quality of our health care.”

Pro-abortion liberal Republican Sens. Susan Collins (ME), Lisa Murkowski (AK), and Shelley Moore Capito (WV) are saying they will not vote in favor of an Obamacare repeal bill.

Meanwhile, President Trump’s two top health officials and Vice President Mike Pence became fixtures in closed-door GOP conference meetings on Capitol Hill, along with other key advisors such as Budget director Mick Mulvaney and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. The administration had hoped the policy expertise of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma would be enough to convince GOP Senators.

“I think those Republicans who promised to repeal ObamaCare ought to vote the same way they voted in 2015,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). “If you’re not willing to vote the same way you voted in 2015, then you need to go back home and you need to explain to Republicans why you’re no longer for repealing ObamaCare.”

The 2015 ObamaCare repeal bill passed the Senate 52-47, with Collins and then-Sen. Mark Kirk (Ill.) being the only Republicans to oppose it.

Thursday, July 20 (Day 182):

Senators Capito, Murkowski, and Portman aggressively supported 2015  Obamacare repeal; talking a ‘different tune’ now

Senator Capito on Obamacare (2015):  “We re losing our choice of doctors.  Obamacare is more costly for business.  We can repeal Obamacare and replace it with reforms that work and know that we will have a two-year transition period—enacting alternative reforms without disrupting coverage.”

Senator Murkowski on Obamacare (2015):  “It should not cost more to provide healthcare than a mortgage payment.”

Senator Portman on Obamacare (2015):  “I have heard from my constituents and they don’t want this law to continue…to make things worse.”

(Editor’s Note:  Congress exempted themselves from Obamacare when it was passed into law.)

Freedom Caucus members will move on repeal of Obamacare in the House

Rep. Tom Garret (R-VA), along with a dozen Freedom Caucus members, are arguing that that the best path to repealing Obamacare revolves around a simple repeal of Obamacare and then replacing the Affordable Care Act with a free-market alternative.

Congress passed a clean repeal bill of Obamacare in 2015 only to have it vetoed by President Obama. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a former chairman of the Freedom Caucus, reintroduced the same legislation in 2017. However, Congress has not taken up that legislation.

Rep. Tom Garrett said, “I commend both the President and Republican leadership for working to replace the monstrosity that is Obamacare. However, we have seen discussions for replacement continue to stall and we must change our approach to reforming healthcare.”

The Virginia congressman concluded, “The House should lead with an incremental approach by supporting a clean-repeal bill and then enter into replacement negotiations. As such, I just initiated a seldom-used parliamentary procedure to advance H.R. 1436 through a discharge petition. The overwhelming majority of my Republican colleagues cast their vote in support of this legislation in 2015, and I have faith they will do nothing short of that now.”

Linda Sarsour Calls CNN’s Jake Tapper ‘Alt-Right’ for Criticizing Her

Pro-Sharia activist Linda Sarsour attacked Jake Tapper for criticizing her on Twitter, calling the CNN host “alt-right.”

The argument between Tapper, a host at CNN, and Sarsour, a political activist and executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, began when Tapper referenced Sarsour’s “ugly sentiments” while criticizing the Women’s March celebrating the birthday of convicted cop killer Assata Shakur.

Shakur was a member of the Black Liberation Army and was convicted of the murder of New Jersey Trooper Werner Foerster in 1977 but escaped prison and fled to Cuba.

Sarsour then asked for examples of what Tapper referred to as “ugly sentiments” expressed by Sarsour in the past.

Tapper is referring to Sarsour’s now-deleted tweet about Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a survivor of female genital mutilation and a human rights activist, and Brigitte Gabriel, where Sarsour wrote, “Brigitte Gabriel= Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She’s asking 4 an a$$ whippin’. I wish I could take their vaginas away – they don’t deserve to be women.” Despite Sarsour deleting the tweet, an archived version can still be found online.

Attorney General responds to President Trump criticism

Attorney General Jeff Sessions

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday brushed off sharp criticism from President Donald Trump over his recusal from the Justice Department’s Russia investigation, saying he loved his job and planned to continue serving.

“We love this job, we love this department, and I plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate,” Sessions said at a news conference announcing a cyber crime bust.

Sessions was flanked by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who were both also criticized by the president in an interview with the New York Times on Wednesday.

Trump took a broad swipe at his administration’s top law officers in the interview, saying he would not have appointed Sessions as attorney general if he had known he would recuse himself. The Republican president also noted Rosenstein’s roots in Democratic Baltimore and that McCabe’s wife took money from a leading Democrat during a political campaign.

Sessions recused himself in March from the probe into allegations Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and possible ties with the Trump campaign. He did so after failing to disclose at his confirmation hearing that he had held meetings last year with Russia’s ambassador.

“Sessions should have never recused himself and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” the Times quoted Trump as saying.

Sessions was Trump’s first supporter in the U.S. Senate and helped shape his political team throughout the campaign and into the transition period after the Nov. 8 election.

“I have the honor of serving as attorney general. It’s something that goes beyond any thought I would have ever had for myself,” Sessions said. “I was proud to be here yesterday, I’m proud to be here today, I’ll be proud to work here tomorrow,” Rosenstein said.

Special Counsel’s team leaking Russian details to press

“A person familiar with the probe” told Bloomberg that the special counsel is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump and his associates’ businesses.

The leak comes the day after Trump told the New York Times in an interview that delving into his business matters would be outside of the Russian investigation.

The team is led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller and four of the six attorneys on the team donated to the Democratic National Committee or Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, according to Axios.

James Quarles donated almost $33,000 to Democrats including Clinton and former President Barack Obama.  Jeannie Rhee donated more than $16,000 since 2008 to Democrats, including the maximum donation possible to Clinton in both 2015 and 2016.  She has also donated to Obama.  Andrew Weissmann donated more than $4,000 to Obama in 2008 and $2,000 to the DNC in 2006, and Elizabeth Prelogar donated $250 each to Clinton and Obama.

Arizona Senator John McCain diagnosed with brain cancer

The Associated Press is reporting the type of brain cancer John McCain has been diagnosed with is “particularly aggressive” and has a five-year survival rate for patients over 55 of only about 4 percent.

Sen. John McCain’s tumor is one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer, and his family and doctors are deliberating next treatment options. The senator had undergone surgery last week to have a blood clot removed from above his left eye, and that clot turned out to be a sign that a tumor called a glioblastoma had begun growing.

McCain’s doctors at the Mayo Clinic said they managed to remove all  the tumor that was visible on brain scans. But this kind of tumor, formally known as a glioblastoma multiforme, is aggressive and sneaky. It puts out microscopic roots that go deeper into brain tissue, explained Dr. Joshua Bederson, chairman of neurosurgery at Mount Sinai Health System in New York, who has no direct knowledge of McCain’s care.

Still, a tumor above the eye is in a location that permits removal with far less risk of damage to language, motor and other brain functions than in many other areas, he noted.

McCain’s Mayo doctors said the senator’s next treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. That’s standard, and the care can take weeks to months. Even among those who respond to initial treatment, the cancer can come back, and often within 12 to 24 months.

 

Friday, July 21 (Day 183):

President Trump appoints new White House Communications Director;

Press Secretary Resigns

Anthony Scaramucci, the founder of SkyBridge Capital, has accepted the job of the White House communications director despite lack of support for him by White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon who conflict with “West Wing Democrats” like National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, national Economic Council Director Gary Cohn Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

Scaramucci is a strong supporter of the president, having served in a top financial advisory role on Trump’s campaign. He has been an ardent defender of the president in television interviews and previously hosted Wall Street Week on Fox News.

He was also the subject of CNN false reporting that the network was forced to retract and apologize to him for a piece that inaccurately accused him of being under multiple investigations—he is not under any—for “meetings” with Russian bankers that never happened. Three senior CNN editorial officials resigned over the story, amounting to what is still developing into one of the biggest scandals in journalistic history.

The Associated Press

White House press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned, just six months after holding the job. Spicer made his decision after President Donald Trump appointed long-time loyalist Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director.

“I am grateful for Sean’s work on behalf of my administration and the American people,” Trump said in a statement. “I wish him continued success as he moves on to pursue new opportunities. Just look at his great television ratings.”

“It’s been an honor & a privilege to serve [President Donald Trump] and this amazing country,” Spicer wrote on Twitter after the news broke. “I will continue my service through August.”

Spicer, a career political spokesperson, speaking on the phone with CNN’s Dana Bash, Spicer said that he wanted to give Scaramucci a “clean slate” to do his job, although Trump asked him to stay in his job.

After White House communications director Mike Dubke resigned in May, Spicer tried to position himself as the replacement. That effort failed, as Trump decided to select a Trump loyalist as a successor.
