CBS News under fire for holding clip of Trump telling supporters not to attack minorities

CBS News is under fire for holding a videotaped clip from a Friday interview with President-elect Donald Trump urging supporters not to attack minorities until a "60 Minutes" broadcast on Sunday night.

"I am very surprised to hear that. I hate to hear it," Trump told interviewer Lesley Stahl when told of some attacks on minorities that have reportedly occurred since his election victory Tuesday.

"I am so sorry to hear it, and I say stop it," Trump said before looking directly into the camera. "And I say right to the camera, stop it."

Gabriele Kuby's The Global Sexual Revolution: a must-read book in defence of the family

Published this week is the first English translation of The Global Sexual Revolution: the Destruction of Freedom in the Name of Freedom, which details and dissects the insidious and totalitarian promotion by cultural elites and governments of sexual perversity and the destruction of the traditional Christian family. The author is Gabriele Kuby, a sociologist and adult convert to Christianity whom Pope Benedict XVI described as "a brave warrior against ideologies that ultimately result in the destruction of man."

Benedict's comment (found in the preface to the original edition published in German and translated in the new version) reminds us chillingly how far those ideologies have advanced - to the very doors of the Vatican - in a short time since his resignation.

Kuby's grand and magisterial sweep of a book does not need an update, but the new edition does provide a survey of cases in Europe and the U.S. of government enforcement of the new sexual ideology with fines, threats, and actual imprisonments of Christian holdouts.

Media Blacks Out New Snowden Interview The Government Doesn't Want You to See

This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an interview with German television network ARD. The interview has been intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost immediately every time it’s posted on YouTube.

In contrast, this was treated as a major political event in both print and broadcast media, in Germany, and across much of the world. In the interview, Mr. Snowden lays out a succinct case as to how these domestic surveillance programs undermine and erode human rights and democratic freedom.

Woman throws molotov cocktail at pro-life activists outside Planned Parenthood

Last night at an Austin Planned Parenthood abortion facility, a woman threw a Molotov cocktail (a type of homemade bomb) at a group of Central Texas Coalition for Life prayer volunteers. One of the volunteers was able to quickly stomp out the flame and save the group from any danger. The group was able to record the woman's license plate number and turn that information over to the police. Police did arrest the woman who threw the bomb directly at the prayer volunteers.

Central Texas Coalition for Life Executive Director Heather Gardner responded last night. "We are so thankful that none of our courageous volunteers were injured during the incident. Because of their quick actions, the woman responsible was apprehended and will be held accountable."

Tens of thousands march for end of abortion in Washington on Roe anniversary

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 22, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Tens of thousands of pro-life activists endured frigid temperatures and a snow storm Wednesday as they gathered at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to mark the 41st anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling that has prepared the way for an estimated 56 million abortions.

In past years the march has drawn crowds estimated between 400,000 and 650,000. However, the winter storm that blew through Washington on Tuesday led to cancellations of numerous buses and planes, creating a visible drop in numbers at this year's rally and march. The Philadelphia archdiocese, for instance, canceled all of their buses.
