Trump: In Immigration Debate, Race Matters

January 21, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Trump: In Immigration Debate, Race Matters

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN President Trump “said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist. . . . I cannot believe…any president has ever spoken the words that I . . . heard our president speak yesterday.” So wailed Sen. Dick Durbin after departing the White House. And what caused the minority leader to almost faint dead away? Trump called Haiti a “s—hole country,” said Durbin, and then asked why we don’t have more immigrants from neat places “like Norway.” With that, there erupted one of the great media firestorms of the Trump era. On Martin Luther King Day, it was still blazing. Trump concedes he may have disparaged Haiti, which, at last check, was not listed among “Best Places to…Continue Reading

Amoris Laetitia And The Pope’s Deafening Silence

January 20, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Amoris Laetitia And The Pope’s Deafening Silence

By JOSEPH MATT Countless petitions, open letters, heartfelt editorials, endless pleas from concerned Catholics, bishops, and cardinals, filial corrections, and even a plea in the form of a Dubia have all resulted in a deafening silence from the Holy Father. Pope Francis through his failure to clarify or his unwillingness to acknowledge that there is a serious issue with the infamous chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia implies a complicit approval if not an advancement of the dissident thought that is surrounding this harmful document. Publication of Pope Francis’ letter confirming the interpretation of Amoris Laetitia by the Buenos Aires bishops in the Acta Apostolicae Sedis makes it more probable that the Pope has said all he is going to say…Continue Reading

Why Are Enemies Of The Church Being Praised By The Church?

January 19, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Why Are Enemies Of The Church Being Praised By The Church?

  By SHAUN KENNEY Dutch national and abortion advocate Liliane Ploumen may not be a household name in the United States, but she ought to be. This is a woman who, in six short months, raised over $300 million to help foreign nationals work around the Mexico City Policy, a directive instituted by President Ronald Reagan and extended by every Republican president since — Trump being no exception — that prohibits the funding of abortion overseas. In fact, the organization Ploumen represents is a group named SheDecides. What is she deciding? Abortions. A lot of them, and in numbers that would make Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards positively bloodthirsty with envy. It took Michael Hichborn with the Lepanto Institute and Steve…Continue Reading

Questions Vs. Questioning Or, How Can This Be?

January 18, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Questions Vs. Questioning Or, How Can This Be?

By ALICE von HILDEBRAND Reading the Bible can be puzzling. A case in point is the beginning of St. Luke’s Gospel. He relates how the priest Zechariah (or Zacharias) had entered the temple of the Lord to fulfill his priestly function of burning incense. An angel of the Lord appeared to him and informed him that his elderly wife, Elizabeth, would give him a son. His response was fear. The angel told him not to be afraid and that his son’s birth would be a cause of joy to many. But, Zacharias insisted, “How can this be, for I am an old man and my wife is advanced in years” (Luke 1:18). The angel then revealed his name, Gabriel, and…Continue Reading

On Honor and Fortitude

January 17, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on On Honor and Fortitude

By Shaun Kenney Can honor set to a leg? No. Or an arm? No. Or take away the grief of a wound? No. Honor hath no skill in surgery, then? No. What is honor? A word. What is in that word “honor”? What is that “honor”? Air. A trim reckoning. Who hath it? He that died o’ Wednesday. Doth he feel it? No. Doth he hear it? No. ’Tis insensible, then? Yea, to the dead. But will it not live with the living? No. Why? Detraction will not suffer it. Therefore, I’ll none of it. Honor is a mere scutcheon. And so ends my catechism. — William Shakespeare, Henry IV, Part 1, Act 5, Scene 1. + + + One…Continue Reading

Arizona Schools Chief… Looks For Remedy After Clinton-Appointed Judge Boosts Racist Program

January 16, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Arizona Schools Chief… Looks For Remedy After Clinton-Appointed Judge Boosts Racist Program

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Just after Christmas, a federal judge slammed down his gavel against civility, a too-familiar pounding by an unaccountable judiciary that fancies itself wiser and purer than what it views as the citizen rabble. Reacting to the ruling by Judge A. Wallace Tashima, Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas said in part in a December 29 statement: “I am supportive of teaching history and cultural studies, but I don’t understand why the judge felt he needed to strike down the entire law. The provisions that prevent taxpayer dollars being used for classes that promote the overthrow of the United States government, or promote resentment towards a race or class of people, just sound like common…Continue Reading

Taxation Migration

January 15, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Taxation Migration

By MIKE MANNO In case your Christmas parties, bowl games, and New Year’s planning took your attention away from national politics, this may come as a surprise: President Trump got his tax cut plan approved and signed into law. Now you would think that a tax cut would be very popular, but because the Democrats don’t approve, mainly because they don’t approve of Mr. Trump, and the media tirelessly report and echo what the Dems think, the bill was not popular. We’ll leave the finer points of that argument to the tax experts, but one of the shots taken was that the bill penalizes residents of states with already high tax rates. The complaint that it hurts residents of high-tax…Continue Reading

Politics, From Trump To Arpaio . . . Leftists’ Sanctuaries Aid Lawbreakers, But Traditionalists Left Unprotected

January 14, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Politics, From Trump To Arpaio . . . Leftists’ Sanctuaries Aid Lawbreakers, But Traditionalists Left Unprotected

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — “Sanctuary city” has an immediately understood meaning at this point in the twenty-first century United States: a location where criminal illegal aliens are protected by local authorities from lawful federal immigration requirements. “Sanctuary city” doesn’t refer to a place in the U.S. where the atrocity of permissive abortion is rejected and unborn babies receive a sanctuary of protection. It doesn’t refer to a place where traditionally religious people are guaranteed security against the sexually disoriented who may decide to harass and ruinously sue them. The morally deformed proclivities of coastal elites are imposed on even the most conservative locations of the heartland. However, the heart-landers aren’t telling the ACLU’s far-left executives how to live. The…Continue Reading

Life Marches On

January 13, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Life Marches On

By CHRISTOPHER MANION As hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers prepare for the 45th Annual March for Life in Washington on January 19, America is benefiting from the best year since 1973 when it comes to policies affirming the value of life. President Trump has reaffirmed and broadened the Mexico City Policy established by Ronald Reagan. He has targeted Obama’s notorious HHS Mandate for extinction, halted United Nations abortion funding, and successfully named Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Despite these accomplishments, America’s Catholic bishops have found it difficult to praise President Trump. When forced to do so, their tone is begrudging and usually ends with a bitter “but” — especially when it comes to Trump’s determination to restore the…Continue Reading

What Is America’s Mission Now?

January 12, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on What Is America’s Mission Now?

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN Informing Iran, “The U.S. is watching what you do,” Ambassador Nikki Haley called an emergency meeting Friday, January 5 of the Security Council regarding the riots in Iran. The session left her and us looking ridiculous. France’s ambassador tutored Haley that how nations deal with internal disorders is not the council’s concern. Russia’s ambassador suggested the United Nations should have looked into our Occupy Wall Street clashes and how the Missouri cops handled Ferguson. Fifty years ago, 100 U.S. cities erupted in flames after Martin Luther King’s assassination. Federal troops were called in. In 1992, Los Angeles suffered the worst U.S. riot of the 20th century, after the LA cops who pummeled Rodney King were acquitted…Continue Reading
