Pope Francis: Media DisInfo, Defamation Is A Sin

"A thing that can do great damage to the information media is disinformation: that is, faced with any situation, saying only a part of the truth, and not the rest. This is disinformation. Because you, to the listener or the observer, give only half the truth, and therefore it is not possible to make a serious judgement. Disinformation is probably the greatest damage that the media can do, as opinion is guided in one direction, neglecting the other part of the truth," Pope Francis says. [Hear that ABC-CBS-NBC-FOX-CNN?! Off to confession you go!!]

After Libya, NATO Looks To Montenegro

NATO’s desperate search for a purpose after the fall of the Soviet Union has left a swath of destruction through places like Libya, which it “liberated” nearly six years ago. Now NATO wants to take in tiny Montenegro, a corrupt, poor, Balkan statelet with a total of 2,000 troops. The reason? To further provoke Russia and to open the door to more NATO expansion perhaps to Georgia, Moldova, and even Ukraine.

Trump's DHS Pick Decried "ILLEGAL ALIENS," Tons Of Drugs & 'Sex Slaves' Slipping Into 'Significantly Degraded' Southern Border

Are the days of insane political correctness and wide open borders finally coming to an end in America, with the advent of Trump's presidency? If Trump's choice for Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security gets his way, perhaps. General John F. Kelly actually used the correct term "illegal alien" very recently, in his official capacity while testifying before the U.S. Congress! In a statement on the 'Impact of Budget Cuts,' Kelly explained that budget restraints were preventing him from properly doing his job of protecting the southern border, thus endangering the American people. Kelly then says that the drug-running cartel is more efficient than FedEx could ever hope to be!! This guy is funny too!
