Remembering A Saint Who Changed World Politics

May 14, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Remembering A Saint Who Changed World Politics

By JOHN J. METZLER John Paul II, the Pope from Poland, has been declared a saint. According to canon law, the Pope performed the requisite miracles and was thus then canonized by the Vatican. Yet, one unspoken miracle of John Paul was playing a pivotal role in the ending of the Cold War. The 27-year pontificate of John Paul II was marked by a whirlwind of pastoral visits, pilgrimages, and meetings with both the faithful and world leaders, more than any of his Predecessors. JPII, as he became known, became a religious “rock star” in a profoundly secular world; a man whose humble spirituality, but yet extraordinary political sense, and tireless moves toward global religious reconciliation, earned him esteem in…Continue Reading

Benghazi: Case Closed

May 13, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Benghazi: Case Closed

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK You would think that even the most partisan liberal Democrat would be ready to propose a plea bargain as the best response when anyone mentions the Obama administration’s story about the attack on our embassy in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The more Obama’s supporters try to spin themselves out of this one, the deeper they spin themselves into a hole. They are becoming laughingstocks. What might the plea bargain look like? Something along the lines of, “Yes, we pushed a false narrative about an Internet video being the cause of the attack on the embassy, but you have to cut us some slack. Those were confusing days. It appears that people in our administration permitted…Continue Reading

Is Obama Wrong On Ukraine?

May 12, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Is Obama Wrong On Ukraine?

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN “What Would America Fight For?” That question shouts from the cover of this week’s Economist. It is, asserts the magazine, “the question haunting its allies.” While most agree that America would fight to defend her treaty allies and to protect vital interests if imperiled, the question is raised by President Obama’s reticence in Crimea, Ukraine, and Syria. Asked in Manila how he answers critics who say his foreign policy appears to be one of “weakness,” the president, stung, replied: “Typically, criticism of our foreign policy has been directed at the failure to use military force. And the question…I would have is, why is it that everybody is so eager to use military force after we’ve just…Continue Reading

Taking Back Mother’s Day From Planned Parenthood

May 11, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Taking Back Mother’s Day From Planned Parenthood

By REY FLORES Mother’s Day is no exception to the fact that Satan is always ready to taint and twist all that is good. And that is why this day becomes all the more important for us to truly celebrate motherhood in today’s Culture of Death. Who better than the Blessed Mother to help us do this? Mary will help us crush the head of the serpent as we defend motherhood. It is no surprise that the most pro-infanticide president ever always likes to tie in abortion giant Planned Parenthood when it comes publicly acknowledging anything to do with women. Last year, Obama made it a point to invite them to a pre-Mother’s Day celebration in another insidious attempt to…Continue Reading

Government Will Control You Before It Controls Climate

May 10, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Government Will Control You Before It Controls Climate

By TERENCE P. JEFFREY (Editor’s Note: Terence P. Jeffrey is the editor in chief of Creators Syndicate,, provided this column. All rights reserved.) +    +    + Ultimately, it will not matter if people in government cynically promote the theory that human activity is destroying the global climate as a means of taking control of your life, or if they take control of your life because they sincerely believe human activity is destroying the global climate. Either way, government will take control of your life. The National Climate Assessment the Obama administration released this past week describes in Sisyphean terms the task government faces in limiting carbon dioxide emissions, which the assessment says make up 84 percent of the…Continue Reading

A Nature Cannot Be Defined By Imperfections

May 9, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on A Nature Cannot Be Defined By Imperfections

By DONALD DeMARCO The argument has been put forth that traditional marriage and same-sex “marriage” are not essentially different because, in some instances, a heterosexual union cannot produce offspring. Thus both forms of “marriage” are equal in those cases where there is no ability to procreate. This argument fails to take into consideration the nature of marriage and how certain imperfections, such as infertility, do not alter that nature. Infertility is not an integral part of the nature of marriage. It is an imperfection, a deprivation of a power that belongs to what marriage is in its wholeness. A same-sex “marriage” is not infertile because of an imperfection, but because it is not in the nature of same-sex partners to…Continue Reading

Culture Of Life 101 . . . “Profile: The United Nations Population Fund”

May 8, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Culture Of Life 101 . . . “Profile: The United Nations Population Fund”

By BRIAN CLOWES (Editor’s Note: Brian Clowes has been director of research and training at Human Life International since 1995. For the complete set of the first 100 “Culture of Life 101” articles with footnotes, e-mail him at +    +    + The United Nations Population Fund, or UNFPA, is one of the three most influential population control groups in the world, standing alongside the Population Council and the International Planned Parenthood Federation. What makes UNFPA unique is that it has the full authority of the United Nations behind it and enjoys a guaranteed one billion dollars of income annually from the developed nations of the world. Unlike the many other UN agencies, population control is not a sideline or…Continue Reading

Poverty And The Papacy

May 7, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Poverty And The Papacy

By DONALD DeMARCO The media’s infatuation with Pope Francis, and his deep concern for the poor, exemplified by his identification with il poverello of Assisi, has obscured the equally deep concern for the poor expressed by so many of his papal Predecessors. Although the “Good News” of the Gospel, which is reflected in every papal encyclical, is news that stays news, the news carried by the daily press is quickly forgotten. The historic event on April 27, 2014 brought four Popes together: Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, saying Mass, together with Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII being canonized. It was a momentous event, one not likely ever to be repeated. It is also an opportunity…Continue Reading

Of Psychic Phenomena And Heaven

May 6, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Of Psychic Phenomena And Heaven

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK Are psychic experiences and extrasensory perception real? I say they are, or can be. Beyond that, I think they provide an answer to the objections offered by nonbelievers who doubt the reality of Jesus’ promise of an afterlife. Why do I think psychic experiences are real? Because I had one. Just one, but it was so real and intense that I have no doubt about its authenticity. It is an experience I described years ago in The Wanderer. If by chance there is anyone reading this column today who remembers the earlier column, I ask you to bear with me. The context was different back then.
