For Good Or Ill . . . “Trump Effect” Casts President’s Shadow Over Pennsylvania Election

March 17, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on For Good Or Ill . . . “Trump Effect” Casts President’s Shadow Over Pennsylvania Election

By DEXTER DUGGAN Just before the mid-March special election in western Pennsylvania where Democratic congressional candidate Conor Lamb had desperately distanced himself from his left-wing national political party, Hillary Clinton dug up the ghosts of her 2016 presidential loss all over again, once again illustrating what helped to defeat her and leftists like her. During a trip to India, Hillary said the parts of the country that voted for her opponent Donald Trump were backward and bigoted, where even women’s sons tell Mom how she should vote, while Hillary’s areas were vibrant and productive places attuned to the future. “I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward,” Hillary boasted — leaving even her own operatives cringing. Hillary…Continue Reading

The Wanderer Interviews Steven Mosher… In China, The State Aspires To Be The “Church”

March 16, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on The Wanderer Interviews Steven Mosher… In China, The State Aspires To Be The “Church”

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Steve Mosher, one of the America’s most prominent China experts, was kicked out of China — and Stanford University — in the early 1980s for breaking the “gentlemen’s rule of silence” regarding Communist China: he tore back the curtain on the country’s “one-child” policy, a draconian campaign that resulted in forced abortions performed in barbaric conditions on millions of Chinese women every year. I was working for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee at the time, and was surprised that the State Department showed little interest in Mosher’s exposure of what was clearly one of the most egregious violation of human rights in the world at the time. My boss, Sen. Jesse Helms, held hearings on China’s one-child…Continue Reading

Daleiden Case Gets New Life

March 15, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Daleiden Case Gets New Life

By REY FLORES As most Wanderer readers may recall, David Daleiden and his organization, the Center for Medical Progress, exposed Planned Parenthood a few years back with some explosive undercover videos which showed how Planned Parenthood is in the horrific business of selling body parts and organs of the babies they abort. As if the systematic genocide Planned Parenthood has perpetrated on the unborn since its inception wasn’t evil enough, the butchers employed by Planned Parenthood were caught on video flippantly discussing the way they chop and sell specific parts of the unborn children. I was thrilled to receive some promising news this past week in an email from my friend Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas…Continue Reading

A World Without Humor

March 14, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on A World Without Humor

By DONALD DeMARCO In traveling one meets many interesting people. I met Frank Layden who was coaching the Utah Jazz at the time, on the concourse of Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. Having seen him on TV several times, it was easy enough to recognize him. He was most agreeable and we chatted amiably as I walked with him, though for me, I did not mind walking for a while in the wrong direction. I admired Layden for his ability to ease tensions and defuse controversy, qualities that serve an NBA coach very well. He was awarded NBA’s Coach of the Year in 1984 and, in that same year, won the NBA’s Executive of the Year. When Dennis Rodman of the Detroit…Continue Reading

So What’s A Little Pornography Among Friends?

March 13, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on So What’s A Little Pornography Among Friends?

By MIKE MANNO Statistics from the Internet tell us that, as you read this, there are 30,000 people in the United States who are viewing Internet pornography. The demand for this “art” is so high that every 39 minutes a new porn video is produced. Worldwide, pornography is nearly a $100 billion-a-year industry. The Applied Research Forum reported that in 2002 alone there were more than 11,000 new hard-core video/DVD titles released. Family Safe Media reports that there are nearly five million pornographic websites and they make up nearly 15 percent of all websites. The average age of first exposure to Internet porn is 11; 80 percent of 15- to 17-year-olds have viewed porn online and 10 percent of adults…Continue Reading

Gun Control Or Self-Control?

March 12, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Gun Control Or Self-Control?

By CHRISTOPHER MANION The recent massacre of students in Parkland, Fla., has justifiably generated a generous flow of commentary. Sifting through the myths for the most prominent arguments, it becomes clear that the American left has stuck to its guns, so to speak, demanding more government power — in this case, the federal regulation of guns and those permitted to possess them. “Gun Control” has long been a central plank in the platform of the American left, where it resides in comfortable cohabitation with the left’s celebration of the sexual revolution in all of its constantly mutating forms. After all, leftists want to show the world that they can control something! Of course, such a contradiction can exist only in…Continue Reading

Resource Center Official Says… Denver Archbishop’s Talk On Humanae Vitae Inspired Her

March 11, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Resource Center Official Says… Denver Archbishop’s Talk On Humanae Vitae Inspired Her

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Denver Archbishop Samuel Aquila’s talk here to observe the fiftieth anniversary of Blessed Paul VI’s encyclical Humanae Vitae was an inspiration on how to deal with the “‘ anti- culture’ seeking to distort and damage our sexuality at every turn,” according to the coordinator of the Phoenix Catholic diocesan resource center that sponsored Aquila’s talk. “ I was struck by Archbishop Aquila’s comments on encounter. Rather than immediately placing his reflections on ( Humanae Vitae) and human sexuality within the language of moral right and wrong, he chose first to create a context of encounter — a context of being fully present to others and a love that is restorative,” said Katrina Zeno, coordinator of…Continue Reading

God Proves Himself

March 10, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on God Proves Himself

By SHAUN KENNEY Mr. C — shares a Newsmax article talking about the rise in atheism while scientific evidence seems to be centering on the actual existence of an actual God. Interestingly enough, the article (“Scientific, Philosophical Case for God’s Existence Reaches New Heights,” Newsmax, February 20, 2018) mentions the arguments from Dr. Alvin Plantinga’s Where The Conflict Really Lies, which is a relatively new book that attacks the Darwinist reliance on reproducibility. The book — published in 2011 — is an interesting argument that effectively states that science and faith may have its discord, but science and Darwinian naturalism have even deeper problems to resolve, which Plantinga effectively means physicalism — or the concept that mankind can know the…Continue Reading

Pale Pentecost… The Treason Against Women

March 9, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Pale Pentecost… The Treason Against Women

By J.B. TONER (J.B. Toner studied literature at Thomas More College of Liberal Arts. He is the son of Deacon James H. Toner, a frequent contributor to The Wanderer.) + + + On January 21, 2017, women marching for the dignity of women donned cloven pink hats like albino flames, ostensibly named for a cat. No one, perhaps, could have foreseen this latest move in the degradation of womankind; but as Milton’s Satan remarks, “And in the lowest deep, a lower deep / Still threat’ning to devour me, opens wide.” It’s conceivable that with some prognostication, we may forearm ourselves against the next devouring gambit. First, of course, we must chart the minotaur-haunted paths that led us here. Tracing the…Continue Reading

Disgusted Democrats… Could Be Basis Of GOP 2018 Campaign Ads

March 8, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Disgusted Democrats… Could Be Basis Of GOP 2018 Campaign Ads

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Longtime Democrats who have become disgusted with or left that political party could be the basis of powerful campaign commercials for the other side in the 2018 midterm elections, to hold the mirror up to what that party has become, if only Republican media strategy will show the courage of GOP platform convictions. In one recent incident, toxic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of San Francisco, was heckled at a February 20 Phoenix gathering by a lifelong Democrat who had been won over by Donald Trump. As multimillionaire Pelosi recited the standard leftwing resentment of wealthy people, a Latina in the audience called out, “How much are you worth, Nancy? Do you live in…Continue Reading
