Thanks to Trump: 17 uncompromising pro-lifers elected

    Out of the recent elections, a not so obvious victory emerges: (as of Friday) the number of pro-life women in the U.S. House of Representatives has doubled. There are 17 (with 5 more are still in the running) new pro-life warriors among congresswomen. Half of them have flipped seats previously held by Democrats, all the while underscoring their opposition to abortion and socialism.

    US presidential elections confirm the end of democracy

    What is happening in the U.S. presidential elections is beyond belief. Since Trump is the quintessential villain and since every means is legitimate to get rid of him, we have witnessed a steady rise of "irregularities" at the polling stations. Above all, we have seen an alliance between the mass media and the powers that be to cover them up and legitimise them. Indeed, St. John Paul II’s prophecy, and reiterated not so long ago by Benedict XVI, is now being fulfilled:  “As history demonstrates, a democracy without values easily turns into an open or thinly disguised totalitarianism."

    "Turks and Azeris want us dead; we Armenians are defending Christianity”

    “From where I am, while I can hear the noise of gunfire and falling shells, I see just how huge is the pack of lies spread by the western media”. Teresa Mkhitaryan, the foundress of the humanitarian association “The Seed”, speaks about the attack on her homeland now underway: “It isn’t true that hundreds of persons have died, but thousands; it isn’t true that we launched any attack, but Azerbaijan did; it isn’t true that under direct attack is Nagorno-Karabakh alone”. But here my people are reacting, “my people are bearing witness to both great courage and impressive faith”.

    Trump has already won over Christians, the poor

    The first televised debate between U.S. presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Joe Biden, was essentially a draw. A notable American correspondent for Italian media and author of “The Lone Warrior” (on Trump's re-election challenge), Glauco Maggi, said Trump did not do as well as he could have. On the other hand, debate viewers have now also seen how weak the Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, really is. Now the test is winning the hearts and minds of undecided Americans in the last critical month before voters head to the polls in early November. Trump has already done the impossible, as a New York billionaire and accused “racist” winning over the vote of the poor, Christians and, ever more so, the vote of African Americans.

    Turkey fans Nagorno Karabakh conflict in expansionist bid

    In the Caucasus, war has broken out once again for the control of the small mountain region of Nagorno Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Nagorno Karabakh is the site of one of the many "frozen" conflicts that erupted following the collapse of the USSR and which was never actually resolved with a real peace treaty. This time Turkey is the nation fanning the flames of a renewed conflict whose age-old causes date back to the Armenian genocide of 1915.

    A Counter-revolutionary Talks About the Hell of Venezuelan Prisons

    Vasco Da Costa, a Venezuelan dissident, winner of the 2017 Sakharov prize, calls himself a counter-revolutionary, a traditionalist. His ideas have evidently caused fear in the regime started by Hugo Chavez and inherited by Nicolas Maduro, who has had him arrested eight different times. Just as a recent UN report has  revealed the horrors of the Venezuelan regime, Da Costa talks about the abuses and tortures he personally endured in the military prisons and secret camps where the the DGCIM services freely torture political prisoners.  They are part of a repressive system put in place by those who support 21st-century socialism, part of an international revolutionary project that is communist with a dose of liberation theology, born in Cuba and exported to Venezuela.

    “Dear Pope, Help Nicaragua: Ortega Oppresses the People and the Church.”

    Abuses in Nicaragua by the Ortega-Zambrana regime continue: 18 policemen dressed in black kidnapped the owner of an anti-communist farm, along with his son and two other youths. This action has been denounced by the lawyer and political exile Álvaro Leiva, the executive secretary of the Nicaraguan Association for Human Rights. Leiva also wrote a letter to Pope Francis denouncing the threats and persecutions executed by the dictatorship, which politicizes religion in order to intimidate the Church. The Daily Compass exclusively publishes this letter here.


    The “Love Jihad”: 4000 forced “brides” of violent Islam

    They are young girls who are Christian or Hindu. They are approached by peers, who kidnap and rape them, and then after threatening to publish the rape video on social media force them to convert. All of them are victims of the “love jihad,” the “holy war of love” that is upsetting Kirala. The Indian Catholic Church denounces ISIS’s method of recruiting, but even among Catholics there are progressive groups that deny or minimize.
