    The pope added, "How can an act that suppresses an innocent and helpless life as it blossoms be therapeutic, civil or, simply, humane?" Pope John Paul II, recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church in 2014, condemned abortion and euthanasia as moral "crimes," which he suggested had been misconstrued as individual rights in a growing "culture of death." Building on his predecessor's thematics, Pope Francis has since criticized a "culture of indifference and waste" and urged families not to allow themselves "to be poisoned by the toxins of selfishness." "We are victims of the throwaway culture. ... Today [abortion] has become a 'normal' thing," he said in an address on September 27, 2021, "a habit that is very bad; it is truly murder." This summer, the pope told Reuters that he respects the Supreme Court's June 24 ruling, which overturned Roe v. Wade. While admitting he did not understand the full legal significance of the court's ruling from a "technical point of view," he emphasized that abortion "is a problem." He suggested that the science is clear....
    The Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Dr. Rochelle Walensky has clashed with President Joe Biden's assertion that the coronavirus pandemic is over, instead preferring to say that 'we're in a different place'. Speaking with ABC News Walensky refused to agree with Biden's declaration that the pandemic is in the rear view mirror but she did acknowledge how hospitalization and case rates were falling thanks to the wide availability of vaccines.   Biden made his remarks during his appearance on CBS 60 Minutes on Sunday. 'The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We're still doing a lot of work on it, but the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one's wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape and so I think it's changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it,' Biden said while walking around the Detroit Auto Show last week - an event which drew thousands of visitors. The Director of the CDC Dr. Rochelle Walensky refused to agree with the president's claim that the pandemic is...
    President Joe Biden will give an optimistic, not a political speech, when he addresses Americans on Thursday night, the White House says. But his remarks, coming 10 weeks before the November midterm election, will push for voter participation as the president works to keep Democrats in control of Congress.  The president will balance his attacks on 'extreme MAGA Republicans' and the threat to democracy with an optimistic look at America's future. Office. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the president will talk about protecting freedom and that those who don't agree are 'extreme.'  'When you are not with where majority of Americans are, then, you know, that is extreme. That is an extreme way of thinking,' she said at Thursday's press briefing. She cited those who are pushing for a full ban on abortions - no exceptions - and those who attack democracy and incite calls for violence as examples.  She said the speech, which begins at 8 p.m. ET, will be optimistic in tone and not political.  'It's not a political speech,' Jean-Pierre said. 'What we're going to hear...
    Look, there’s been a lot of doom and gloom and hyper-alarmist stuff in the news lately, so here: something to chuckle at for a change. First Lady Jill Biden held a conference at the White House on Wednesday alongside Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh. This was Mrs. Biden’s first public event since recovering from Covid-19, and the panel was focused on discussing the country’s teacher shortage and improving pay for educators. Towards the end of the discussion, Walsh was giving an outline of the Biden administration’s efforts to promote apprenticeships that would intertwine with boosting the teaching profession. Walsh eventually told the room “I’m gonna stop talking right now” because the door swung open and there was the president. “Whatever she says, I agree with,” Biden chirped, much to the room’s amusement. Mr. Biden left right after saying that, and as everyone was laughing, his wife turned to Walsh saying “speaking of partners…” “That’s a wrap,” Walsh declared thereafter to another round of laughs. So there, a little hump-day levity for everyone. Watch...
    Jill Biden held her first public event since her bout with covid, appearing at the White House on Wednesday to talk about teacher shortages. 'I'm feeling well, really well. Thank you,' she said after DailyMail.com asked her how she was doing. The first lady, who teaches at Northern Virginia Community College, participated in a meeting hosted by the White House Domestic Policy Council in the Roosevelt Room to discuss strategies to address the teacher shortage in the short and long term. President Joe Biden stuck his head in the meeting, peeking in the door to joke of his wife: 'Whatever she says I agree with.' He then slipped back out.  Jill Biden held her first public event since her bout with covid, appearing at the White House to talk about teacher shortages President Joe Biden stuck his head in the meeting, peeking in the door to joke of his wife: 'Whatever she says I agree with' The Bidens were in the meeting of the White House Domestic Policy Council in the Roosevelt Room to discuss strategies to address the teacher shortage...
    President Joe Biden further reacted to a leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court on Tuesday, criticizing the “radical” argument against a constitutional right to abortion. “The idea that we’re gonna make a judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child based on a decision by the Supreme Court I think goes way overboard,” Biden said. The president spoke to reporters about the draft opinion as he left Washington, DC, for a trip to Alabama to visit a Lockheed Martin manufacturing facility. During his remarks, Biden falsely claimed that all mainstream religions believe the beginning of human life is open to interpretation. “Look, think what Roe says. Roe says what all basic mainstream religions have historically concluded — that the right — that the existence of a human life and being is a question. Is it at the moment of conception? Is it six months? Is it six weeks?” The president failed to mention that the Catholic Church, of which he claims to be a member, teaches that life...
    Republican voters side with Mike Pence over former President Donald Trump on the question of whether the former vice president could have "overturned" the 2020 election during congressional certification, according to a fresh poll. Trump claims Pence could have altered the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, ensuring both of them a second term, had he blocked President Joe Biden's Electoral College victory by refusing to tally certified slates of electors submitted from certain states. The former president insists his vice president had the constitutional right to take such action. Pence insists Trump is "wrong" — that the Constitution does not essentially empower the vice president to determine the outcome of the presidential election during the congressional certification process. OZ AND MCCORMICK WAGE BATTLE FOR TRUMP ENDORSEMENT IN GOP SENATE PRIMARY And, in a national poll from Quinnipiac University released Wednesday, 52% of self-identified Republicans said Pence's position is "closer in line to their way of thinking" than Trump's. Thirty-six percent of Republicans surveyed said they tend to agree with Trump. "Could Pence have overturned the election as ordered...
    Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that he agreed with President Joe Biden’s refusal to send U.S. troops to evacuate Americans in Ukraine. Cassidy said, “This is a culmination of the United States de-arming when it comes to energy diplomacy. Think about it less than one year ago, under the previous administration, we were not only energy-independent but poised to become and have the ability to make the E.U. energy independent. In less than a year, we’ve lost that ability. Russia has the leverage over the E.U. in terms of energy supply in order to blackmail them and turning a blind eye.” Anchor Sandra Smith asked, “The president is strongly encouraging Americans in Ukraine to leave as soon as possible and says that there is no prospect for a U.S. military-led evacuation from inside Ukraine. Should the U.S. be doing more about this?” Cassidy said, “I agree with the president 100 percent. Use some common sense. We should not be endangering our soldiers or Marines, etc., because somebody decides not to evacuate until...
    Joe Biden's message and the promise he made to the American people from the beginning of his campaign for the presidency was that he was going to 'heal and restore America's soul.' Over and over again on the campaign trail, he spoke and pleaded with the American people in an effort to convey that he alone was the antidote to the divisive chaos of the Trump years.  He promised to be a president for all Americans and to usher us out of what was one of the most divided times in American history. We all know he hasn't done that. By any metric, America is becoming a worse place to live, work, and raise our children. The Fourth of July promise of freedom from Covid was little more than an ill-advised photo op. A new Gallup poll just released Monday shows that in 2021, Republicans went from a 9-percentage point deficit in party identification to a 5-point lead. It is the biggest advantage for Republicans since the 1994 'Republican Revolution.' Biden promised to be a president for all Americans and...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki ended the week with yet another smack down of Peter Doocy, as the Fox News reporter admitted there are Republicans who "don't agree with voting rights." "As you talked about a year ago and working with Republicans, now [President Biden] is talking about Republicans that don't agree with voting rights," Doocy complained, "he's describing them as George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis. What happened to the guy who, when he was elected said: 'To make progress me must stop treating our opponents as our enemy'?" Doocy was referring to President Joe Biden's widely praised speech in support of voting rights earlier this week, referencing civil rights icons and their infamous white supremacist and segregationist opponents. "Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace?" Biden asked, to the anger of many conservatives. "Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis? This is the moment to decide to defend...
    President Joe Biden was fooled by a father of some children that he called for Christmas to track Santa Claus via NORAD. “Merry Christmas, and let’s go, Brandon!” the father named “Jared” said, referring to the popular conservative phrase to signal dissatisfaction with the president after Biden spoke with his kids on the phone. “Let’s go, Brandon, I agree,” Biden replied. CALLER: "Merry Christmas and Lets Go Brandon:" BIDEN: "Lets Go Brandon, I agree" pic.twitter.com/K8PpzceB3K — Greg Price (@greg_price11) December 24, 2021 This is the first time that Biden has reacted to the phrase sweeping the nation, and it remains unclear whether the president knows what it means. The White House claimed in November that Biden did not focus on it. “I don’t think he spends much time focused on it or thinking about it,” Psaki replied when asked by NBC reporter Peter Alexander about the slogan during a press briefing. Biden spoke with several couples and children during the traditional Santa tracking event with military families, a tradition for the presidents on Christmas Eve. First Lady Jill Biden led...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki couldn't resist an opportunity to bring former President Donald Trump into the frame when asked on Friday whether Joe Biden or Kamala Harris regretted rushing to judgement in their passionate support of convicted liar Jussie Smollett.  Psaki was asked during the White House briefing on Friday, in light of Smollett's Thursday conviction: 'Since the guilty verdict, are there any lessons learned here on rushing to judgement when a crime is alleged?'  She replied: 'There are lessons learned perhaps for everybody who commented at the time, including former President Trump.'  Psaki then looked down at her notes to read aloud Trump's quote, when he said: 'I can tell you that it’s horrible, it doesn’t get worse'.   She then went on: 'Lying to the police, particularly about something as painful as hate crimes is shameful. 'Instances of that need to be investigated fully and those found guilty need to be punished. False accusations divert valuable police resources, important investigations that make it harder for real victims to come forward and be believed. 'You know, look back at the time....
    Fox News senior strategic analyst Gen. Jack Keane on "America Reports" Friday slammed President Biden's "self-righteous stubbornness" on pulling the U.S. out of Afghanistan on August 31st.  AFGHAN WITNESS TO KABUL AIRPORT EXPLOSION SAYS YOUNG GIRL DIED IN HIS ARMS GEN. JACK KEANE: Yeah, that's pretty significant that one suicide bomber was able to do that much damage. How horrific that is, and, certainly, it was a complex attack because I understand there was exchange of gunfire, too.  ... That is really quite staggering there to have that kind of breakdown and cause those kinds of problems and challenges. My God. Listen, our troops have done a great job with that airfield, [they'r'e] to be commended. It is being overshadowed by the stark reality of losing 13 of our troops and 130 Afghans. But getting out 112,000 –  I think that is the number we have now in a shorter period of time that they have done it.  ... It is very commendable and the Department of State and everybody is doing that. We had a security lapse yesterday. You...
    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace heaped praise for President Biden's address amid the turbulent military withdrawal from Afghanistan that has led to the abrupt takeover by the Taliban.  With the security situation in Afghanistan quickly deteriorating, Biden returned to the White House Monday amid growing pressure to address the unfolding events. Biden spent much of his time blaming past administrations and Afghanistan's military forces for the situation in the country before refusing to take questions from the media after finishing his remarks. "It is wrong to order American troops to step up when Afghanistan’s own armed forces would not," Biden said of the collapse of the Afghan military, a fighting force Biden assured Americans last was prepared for the absence of the U.S. military. Biden assured Americans that he "squarely stands behind" his decision to leave Afghanistan, though he admitted that the pace of the Taliban's offensive did catch his administration off guard. NY TIMES, WAPO, WSJ ISSUE JOINT STATEMENT URGING BIDEN TO RESCUE JOURNALISTS OUT OF AFGHANISTAN "This did unfold more quickly than we anticipated," Biden said, noting that the...
    Wallace said that the vast majority of Americans would agree with the president. "95% of the American people will agree with everything he just said. 95% of the press covering this White House will disagree," Wallace claimed. "And for an American president to finally be completely aligned with such an overwhelming majority of what the American people think about Afghanistan is probably a relief to the American people," she added. Biden in his speech placed much of the blame for the disastrous retreat on the Afghan people themselves. "Afghanistan's political leaders gave up and fled the country. The Afghan military collapsed, sometimes without trying to fight," the president said. "If anything, the developments of the past week reinforced that ending U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan now was the right decision," he continued. "American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves." Wallace went on to praise Biden for...
    MSNBC host Nicole Wallace predicted President BidenJoe BidenInternational community calls for 'safe and orderly departure' of foreign nationals and Afghans Taliban seize power as Washington debates what went wrong Toll from Haiti earthquake jumps to almost 1,300 dead, 5,700 injured MORE's speech on the ballooning crisis in Afghanistan will be more well received among the American public than it will be by the Washington, D.C., press corps.  "Ninety-five percent of the American people will agree with everything he just said," Wallace said shortly after Biden's speech ended on Monday afternoon. "Ninety-five percent of the press covering this White House will disagree." During his remarks from the White House East Room, Biden doubled down on his decision to pull troops from Afghanistan, saying he would not pass the country's longest war on to another American president.  “I will not mislead the American people by claiming that just a little more time in Afghanistan will make all the difference. Nor will I shrink from my share of responsibility for where we are today and how we must move forward from here,” Biden said. “I am the...
    Panamanian and Colombian officials this week agreed to impose a daily limit of 650 this month and 500 in September on U.S.-bound global migrants granted safe passage to cross the deadly and treacherous Darien Gap jungle that straddles their mutual border rather than trying to stop them. Without raising any objections, a U.S. State Department official quietly participated in the online event at which U.S. allies Colombia and Panama agreed to allow hundreds of global migrants to travel to reach America’s southern border, which is already facing a record-setting surge of migrants. “By consensus, the humanitarian approach will guide the actions that we agree on for the orderly and controlled passage of migrants on their way north,” Panama’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Erika Moynes, declared during the teleconference. On Thursday, the Associated Press (AP) revealed that Panama and Colombia reached the pact to limit the number of migrants allowed to cross their mutual border undeterred during a teleconference, witnessed by officials from Mexico, the United States, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru. The Biden administration has remained silent about its...
    Rasmussen Reports released a poll Tuesday that shows 61 percent of likely voters agree with a statement former President Donald Trump issued last week: “Election Reform must happen in Swing States like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona where voters have lost confidence in their electoral process.” The percentage of voters agreeing with Trump’s statement was larger than those agreeing with a quote from a recent speech by Biden, who said America is “facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War.” Fifty-six percent (56%) agree with Biden, including 33% who Strongly Agree. Thirty-seven percent (37%) disagree with Biden, including 26% who strongly disagree. This is just more proof that the Democrat party’s jihad to legalize cheating at the polls is backfiring big-time. Even as Democrats, like the poisonous Stacey Abrams, and their allies in the fake news media scream Racism! and Jim Crow!, most especially about something as basic as requiring a photo ID to vote, public opinion is moving against them, way against them, with this poll on top of a poll showing a whopping 75 percent...
    Smoke rises from a factory as a truck loaded with cars crosses a bridge in Paris.AP Photo/Michel Euler, File Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.President Joe Biden and leaders of some of the world’s richest countries disappointed environmentalists Sunday at the G7 annual summit by failing to agree on a deadline to end their use of coal for electricity. Burning coal is one of the biggest drivers of global warming, and curtailing its use is a priority for Biden, who has described climate change as the greatest threat to US national security. At the summit, the United Kingdom had encouraged the other G7 nations to agree to phase it out in the 2030s, in order to meet their goals of limiting global temperature rise. But when G7 leaders sat down Sunday to talk about climate change, they did not land on a specific time frame to ban coal, and instead only vaguely agreed to “accelerate” efforts to turn away from it....
    Senator Tim Scott has praised President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for agreeing with him that America is 'not a racist country,' after critics attacked Scott with racial slurs over his rebuttal to Biden's joint address to Congress. Scott, a South Carolina Republican, told CBS' Face The Nation on Sunday that he stood by his assessment that America is not racist, despite being pulled over 18 times for 'driving while black.' 'Let me say thank goodness that finally our president, our vice president and one of the leaders in the Democrat- Democrat caucus in the House, Jim Clyburn, have all come forward and said exactly what I've been saying for a long time. America is not a racist country,' Scott said in the interview.  'The question is, is there a lingering effect after a couple of centuries of racism and discrimination in this nation? The answer is absolutely,' he added. Senator Tim Scott has praised President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for agreeing with him that America is 'not a racist country' Biden...
    Reuters April 30, 2021 0 Comments A majority of Americans support measures favored by President Joe Biden to substantially redistribute U.S. wealth, according to an Ipsos poll for Reuters released on Thursday, including tax hikes on the wealthy and a higher minimum wage. The national opinion poll also found that Republican voters were divided over the “trickle-down economics” championed by their party’s leaders since President Ronald Reagan some 40 years ago. In his speech to Congress on Wednesday night, Biden attacked trickle-down economics as an idea that has never worked. The poll was conducted after the speech. The theory, which asserts that tax breaks and other benefits for corporations and the wealthy will benefit everyone else, has been fiercely debated since Reagan made it a centerpiece of his economic strategy in the 1980s. A 2020 study by the London School of Economics of 50 years of data from 18 countries showed that the only significant effect of significant tax cuts to the rich was to increase income inequality with little benefit to unemployment or economic growth. According to the...
    US President Joe Biden speaks about infrastructure investment from the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House campus on April 7, 2021, in Washington, DC.Brendan Smialowski | AFP | Getty Images President Joe Biden will hold his second infrastructure meeting with Democratic and Republican members of Congress on Monday, as GOP lawmakers push to shrink the president's more than $2 trillion plan. Biden aims to approve a package in the coming months that revamps U.S. roads, bridges, airports, broadband, housing and utilities, and invests in job training along with care for elderly and disabled Americans. Republicans have signaled they could support a scaled back bill based around transportation, broadband and water systems. The president has said he wants to craft a bipartisan bill, but Democrats would move to pass legislation on their own through budget reconciliation if they fail to strike a deal with the GOP. As the parties have disparate visions of what qualifies as infrastructure and how big of a role the government should take in improving it, it is unclear what could win support from...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki made clear on Tuesday that President Biden does not feel the same way as Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., when it comes to police following the death of Daunte Wright. After Wright was shot by an officer in a Minneapolis suburb, Tlaib tweeted, "No more policing, incarceration, and militarization," claiming that police in the U.S. cannot be reformed and that what happened to Wright "wasn't an accident" because of the "intentionally racist" nature of American policing. SQUAD MEMBER CALLS FOR END OF US POLICING, WHICH SHE SAYS IS 'INTENTIONALLY RACIST' "That's not the president's view," Psaki said. "The president's view is that there are necessary outdated reforms that should be put in place, that there is accountability that needs to happen, that the loss of life is far too high, that these families are suffering around the country, that the Black community is exhausted from the ongoing threats they feel." Psaki went on to say that Biden believes in using legislation, specifically the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which "can put many of these...
    President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. Congress returns this week after a two-week recess with just as many crises to deal with as there was before the break, and a Senate just as clogged up as ever thanks in no small part to Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. Their intransigence on the filibuster and doing more critical Senate work by budget reconciliation, which can be done with just Democratic votes, is contributing to a Senate backlog. Manchin continues to insist that there has to be 10 Republican votes to pass anything, while this is actually a thing: "Perhaps Democrats' best chance of making a law is over a bill aimed at combating the rise of hate crimes against Asian Americans, but even that is facing resistance from some Senate Republicans who are trying to block the measure ahead of a key procedural vote expected Wednesday." That's Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who is married to a Chinese-American person: Elaine Chao. Nonetheless, President Joe Biden is continuing his quest to get Republicans on board with his infrastructure plan. He's meeting Monday with...
    Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador wished Joe Biden success in his mandate in the United States, said he shared the Democrat’s priorities and stressed that binational cooperation must be respectful of sovereignty. « I agree in his three main approaches (…) they are very important: (combat the) pandemic, economic reactivation and migration. And of course, wishing President Biden that he does very well in his administration, » said López Obrador this Wednesday at the start of his morning press conference.

At the express question of the press, López Obrador assured that he had a « good relationship for the benefit of Mexico » with...
    During a press conference on Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he agrees with Joe Biden’s plan to grant transgender children access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms according to their gender identity. Schumer was asked, “Joe Biden said that on his first day of office, he will give transgender students access to sports, bathrooms, and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity in all federally-funded schools. Do you think he has the ability to do this, and do you agree with this decision?” Schumer responded, “I agree with the decision, and I know he’ll check things out thoroughly, legally.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he agrees with President-elect Joe Biden that transgender students should have access to sports, bathrooms and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity, on his first day in office. During a press conference Tuesday, Schumer was asked whether he agrees with Biden’s proposal for transgender students at federally funded schools. Schumer responded by saying he agrees with it and knows Biden will make sure it is all done legally. “Joe Biden said that on his first day of office he will give transgender access to sports, bathrooms and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity in federally funded schools.

    President-elect Joe Biden on Monday quickly quashed a report that he might break with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and agree to a compromise short of $2.4 trillion on a COVID-19 relief bill. “This is incorrect. The President–elect fully supports the Speaker and Leader in their negotiations,” Biden spokesman Andrew Bates stated. House Democrats passed a more than $3 trillion bill in May, and Senate Republicans responded initially with a $1 trillion plan before talks stalled. Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) say they reduced by $1 trillion their proposal — to $2.4 trillion — and argue Senate Republicans must agree to spend more. Pelosi objects to a piecemeal approach of first passing the most popular relief items. The Biden denial closely followed a New York Times report that said many Biden advisers were “convinced” that effects of the pandemic “require more urgent action before year’s end,” potentially meaning momentum to compromise. Among the sticking points in relief talks is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s insistence that any bill include liability protections for businesses, which Democrats largely oppose....

    Katy Perry at the Gracie Awards in September 2020. Getty Images/Getty Images for Women in Media Foundation Katy Perry is getting called out on Twitter after encouraging followers to call their families on the other side of the political spectrum following the election results.  "The first thing I did when the presidency was called is text and call my family members who do not agree and tell them I love them and am here for them," the singer wrote, along with the hashtag, "#familyfirst."
