Nixon, LBJ & The First Shots In The Judges’ War

April 14, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Nixon, LBJ & The First Shots In The Judges’ War

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN The Democrats’ drive to defeat Neil Gorsuch was the latest battle in a 50-year war for control of the Supreme Court — a war that began with a conspiracy against Richard Nixon by Chief Justice Earl Warren, Justice Abe Fortas, and Lyndon Johnson. By June 1968, Nixon, having swept his primaries, was cruising to the nomination and probable victory in November. The establishment was aghast. Warren’s bitterness toward Nixon dated to their California days. Sen. Nixon had worked behind the scenes for Ike’s nomination in 1952, though Gov. Warren was California’s favorite son. Warren had been crushed and humiliated — but Nixon was rewarded with the vice presidency. Now, 16 years later, the chief justice was…Continue Reading

Easter And The End Of The World

April 13, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Easter And The End Of The World

By JAMES MONTI From the early days of the Church onward into the Middle Ages, there existed a popular tradition among the faithful that imparted to the solemn liturgy of the Easter Vigil an incomparable splendor, creating an overwhelming sense of eager anticipation. For it was believed that when Christ came again to judge the living and the dead He would come during the Easter Vigil. Early Christians especially were captivated by the thought that there would eventually come an Easter Vigil like no other — that just as Holy Mother Church was donning her festal attire to celebrate the Resurrection, unveiling anew the splendors of her sanctuary in the blazing light of the Paschal candle, the tapers of the…Continue Reading

Shutting Down Charles Murray

April 12, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Shutting Down Charles Murray

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK Allison Stanger is the politics and economics professor at Middlebury College who suffered a concussion during her attempt to shuffle Charles Murray to a safe place during the riots that broke out at his appearance at the school. She wrote an op-ed piece in The New York Times on March 24 that confirms what many had suspected: The students rioting against Murray were uninformed about what he had written on matters of race and gender. Stanger began her column by seeking to demonstrate her liberal bona fides and sympathy for the students, who she says were at the “boiling point” because of how “President Trump has demonized Muslims as terrorists and dehumanized many groups of marginalized…Continue Reading

Bishops On Both Sides Of The Border Condemn Wall

April 11, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Bishops On Both Sides Of The Border Condemn Wall

By CHRISTOPHER MANION SANTA CRUZ, Guatemala — Bishops in the United States and Mexico have released new statements on the immigration issue that reflect their growing opposition to President Trump’s immigration policies. On March 22, the Administrative Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops released a “pastoral reflection,” entitled “Living As A People Of God In Unsettled Times.” The document is significantly less hostile to opponents of amnesty for illegal aliens than similar statements issued prior to Trump’s election victory, indicating a change not of policy but of tactics on the part of the bishops’ conference. Before the election, bishops routinely vilified Trump and his supporters for their “nativism,” “bigotry,” and “racism.” The now disgraced Roger Cardinal Mahony…Continue Reading

William F. Buckley And The Grateful Dead

April 10, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on William F. Buckley And The Grateful Dead

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK My guess is that there are a large number of admirers of the work of the late William F. Buckley among readers of The Wanderer. If you are in that group, you will find it rewarding to spend some time with James Rosen’s new book A Torch Kept Lit. Come to think of it, even if you are not familiar with Buckley’s writing, I recommend Rosen’s book. You will discover why Buckley was such a favorite — a cult figure of sorts, in fact — of so many younger conservatives in 1960s and 1970s. The book is a compilation of some of the obituaries that Buckley wrote over the course of the last half of the…Continue Reading

Modesty And Vigilance This Easter

April 9, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Modesty And Vigilance This Easter

By REY FLORES Easter is coming around again and many people will be wearing their Sunday best to celebrate this important holy day celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. While some can afford new clothes, others of us will do our best with what we have. As at Christmas, many attendees at Easter Mass, who aren’t regular Mass-goers and are not used to the unwritten dress code, may show up in either irreverent clothes, or even in scandalous outfits that leave little to the imagination. I have seen women wearing miniskirts that will not allow them to sit in the pew without the skirt literally hiking itself up, revealing what brand of underwear they prefer to wear. Before anyone starts…Continue Reading

Brick By Brick . . . Developer Trump Triumphantly Builds On His Project To Restore U.S.

April 8, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Brick By Brick . . . Developer Trump Triumphantly Builds On His Project To Restore U.S.

By DEXTER DUGGAN Developer Donald Trump’s construction project to restore the United States continues wall by wall, whether a stimulus to raise up new structures, law enforcement to secure citizens’ safety brick by brick, or some other element of renewal. Touching base with some of the working class that was of such help in his election, Trump spoke to about 3,000 attendees at the legislative conference of North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) in Washington, D.C., on April 4. “I’m calling on all Americans, Democrat, Republican, and Independent, to take part in the great rebuilding of America,” a news release from the organization quoted Trump. NABTU president Sean McGarvey brushed aside complaints that traditional union backers of Democrats were engaging…Continue Reading

Why Is Kim Jong Un Our Problem?

April 7, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Why Is Kim Jong Un Our Problem?

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.” So President Donald Trump warns, amid reports North Korea, in its zeal to build an intercontinental ballistic missile to hit our West Coast, may test another atom bomb. China shares a border with North Korea. We do not. Why then is this our problem to “solve”? And why is North Korea building a rocket that can cross the Pacific and strike Seattle or Los Angeles? Is Kim Jong Un mad? No. He is targeting us because we have 28,500 troops on his border. If U.S. air, naval, missile, and ground forces were not in and around Korea, and if we were not treaty-bound to fight…Continue Reading

Along Phoenix’s Glendale Avenue… Baby Butcher Shop Amid Churches And Bustle Of Daily Life

April 6, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Along Phoenix’s Glendale Avenue… Baby Butcher Shop Amid Churches And Bustle Of Daily Life

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — The sign by the street lists tenants at the modest, one-story office building at 1526 W. Glendale Ave. here, among them “Children’s Dentistry” and also the quarters of DeShawn Taylor, MD. What sort of medical work Taylor does isn’t specified on the sign. Taylor removes far more than little ones’ tooth problems at Suite 109. She’s an abortionist at Desert Star Family Planning (desertstarfp.com), exposed in a video released March 29 by the California-based Center for Medical Progress (CMP). In it, Taylor jokes callously about strengthening her biceps in order to do late abortions. Asked by a CMP investigator about verifying signs of life in a possibly abortion-surviving baby, Taylor sidesteps the question and says…Continue Reading

Life, Our Most Precious Gift (VIDEO)

April 6, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Life, Our Most Precious Gift (VIDEO)

Dexter’s article (above)  http://thewandererpress.com/catholic/news/frontpage/along-phoenixs-glendale-avenue-baby-butcher-shop-amid-churches-and-bustle-of-daily-life/ reminds us all too well that the urgency to defund Planned Parenthood should be front and foremost in legislation brought before President Trump immediately. This video below hopefully contributes to that necessity. Dexter accurately sums up today’s media coverage of this American tragedy. “Given the level of protection that dominant media provide for massive, ghastly abortion, one can imagine that if they were tour guides in National Socialist Germany, they’d say those strange smokestacks were anti-pollution devices.” The coverup and the exposure of these atrocities should alarm the most depraved of human beings.
