A Jesuit-trained blogger, fluent in both “native” English and Spanish, translated anew Pope Francis’s recent publication Evangelii Gaudium. It’s not surprising that many have concluded that the “official” translation distorted the Pope’s meaning, especially with regard to “trickle down economics.” JMG wrote:

Today marks the 72nd anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor:
On December 7, 1941, Japanese planes attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory, killing more than 2,300 Americans. The U.S.S.

More than 160 aircraft were destroyed and more than 150 others damaged.
A slight diversion from our usual topics. Entertaining and enlightening videos of birds stealing cameras and taking “selfies”. Enjoy!

According to Scott Whitlock of NewsBusters, [emphasis added to quotes]
Chris Matthews appears to have a Mad Libs-style list of the worst insults he hurls at conservative. On Wednesday, he chose “verbal terror” to smear everyone on the right who disagrees with all of the “great things” Barack Obama wants to do. The Hardball anchor opened his show by hyperbolically warning, “Political armageddon!” According to Matthews, the fight between the President and conservatives is not a conflict of ideas. h/t Gordo
No, it’s much more than a conflict of ideas, alleges Matthews. Watch the video of him, salivating like a mad dog, at NewsBusters. Continue reading

Now we hear that Obama is “pivoting” away from the debacle that is Obamacare as well as the many scandals in his administration. One issue to which he plans to pivot is “immigration reform”.
