Will They Ever Be Satisfied?

March 14, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Will They Ever Be Satisfied?

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK I would wager that readers of this publication have heard — or made — comments like this for many years now: “Can you believe this?” “There’s got to be an end to this madness somewhere.” “Twenty years ago people would have thought you were insane if you said the country would be considering something as ridiculous as this.” “Will they ever be satisfied?” The comments are directed, as you probably have guessed, at the seemingly endless demands by the secular left to transform the borders of what should be acceptable regarding sexual behavior. The pattern is now routine: as soon as we surrender to one demand for greater permissiveness, we get another demand for something more…Continue Reading

Save St. Adalbert’s In Chicago

March 13, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Save St. Adalbert’s In Chicago

By REY FLORES Like a symphony so glorious, an old Catholic church stands as an almost living and breathing witness to the beauty and majesty of God Himself. I could say that the old churches I grew up around in Chicago were my little taste of Heaven, but it was actually a great big serving of sacred art, sacred music, and just pure, unadulterated sacredness all around. An old traditional Catholic church in America will not only have all of the blood, pain, and sacrifice of our Lord in full display, but the blood, sweat, tears, pain, and sacrifices of the Catholic immigrants who gave all to build these beautiful churches. These churches and their pastors were the epicenter of…Continue Reading

Bordering On Resistance . . . Trump Needs More Preparation For Successful Fight With Opposition

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — The entrenched oppositional forces that President Trump faces are determined to end the threat he poses to their control, no matter what manipulation they think they have to use against his America-first election-winning agenda. Illegal immigration is an important example. An oppositional view is that all of North America should be one unit for free movement of labor, goods and capital, and borders are bigoted barriers. From coast to coast, the open-borders forces throw up their own blockades against free movement of the Trump administration’s programs. And if a way could be found to outlaw coastlines defined by oceans, they’d probably declare beaches and coasts to be hateful, too. From a Democrat Party Arizona sheriff…Continue Reading

Intelligence Scandal Roils Washington

March 11, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Intelligence Scandal Roils Washington

By CHRISTOPHER MANION A specter is haunting Washington. A full-scale war is raging between pro- and anti-Trump civil servants who are providing highly classified information to various media covering the Trump administration and its critics. The situation is rapidly escalating to the point where it could result in criminal charges, as well as a profound loss of public confidence in the federal bureaucracy. President Trump, who included bureaucrats as part of the “Washington Establishment” he ran against, has already threatened government agencies with severe “reductions in force.” The leak scandal is likely to exacerbate the mutual hostility. A prominent concern voiced by Republican operatives during the 2016 presidential campaign addressed the Clintons’ past breaches of security. In 1994, for instance,…Continue Reading

The Beltway Conspiracy To Break Trump

March 10, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on The Beltway Conspiracy To Break Trump

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN At Mar-a-Lago the weekend of March 4, President Donald Trump was filled “with fury” says The Washington Post, “mad — steaming, raging, mad.” Early that Saturday, the fuming president exploded with this tweet: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” The president has reason to be enraged. For what is afoot is a loose but broad conspiracy to break and bring him down, abort his populist agenda, and overturn the results of the 2016 election. At its heart is the “deep state” — agents of the intel community, their media collaborators, and their amen corner in a Democratic Party whose control…Continue Reading

What’s The Matter With Kansas?

March 9, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on What’s The Matter With Kansas?

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK About ten years ago the book What’s the Matter With Kansas? by Thomas Frank received considerable attention on the talk shows and in the journals of opinion. Frank’s thesis was that mainstream Americans had been “duped” by Republicans into voting against their economic interests by convincing them that cultural questions such as abortion and homosexual rights were more important issues for them. It is not an uninteresting thesis. Donald Trump’s election revealed the extent to which the counterculture values championed by the Democratic Party of today have alienated white, blue-collar voters in Middle America. But this is not the issue regarding Kansas that one of our readers asks us to consider in a recent email. He…Continue Reading

As Feds Deport ID Thief . . . New Arizona Sheriff Shocked That His Lax Policies Stir Public Alarm

March 8, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on As Feds Deport ID Thief . . . New Arizona Sheriff Shocked That His Lax Policies Stir Public Alarm

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — A just-deported illegal immigrant convicted of identity theft “went to Mass and whispered the sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church,” claimed an editorial in Arizona’s largest daily paper, venting its customary ill-informed outrage against obeying border and immigration laws. And which “sacraments” did the identity thief “whisper” during Mass shortly before deportation? Baptism or Confirmation? Maybe Matrimony and Holy Orders? Or perhaps she mumbled the Anointing of the Sick? The ID stealer was deported to a Catholic shelter just across the international line from Arizona. Lots of confusion seemed to be in the air as the Phoenix-based Arizona Republic raged against President Trump’s new enforcement of existing laws, even while the recently elected Democratic Party…Continue Reading

Scholas Occurrentes… Another Vatican-Soros Connection?

March 7, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Scholas Occurrentes… Another Vatican-Soros Connection?

By MAIKE HICKSON (Editor’s Note: This commentary by Maike Hickson was first published by OnePeterFive.com on February 28, 2017 and is reprinted here with permission. All rights reserved.) + + + Following reports about Pope Francis’ praise of a Soros-funded left-wing organization called PICO — People Improving Communities through Organizing — we have been informed by some Spanish-speaking sources about a connection between Pope Francis’ papal foundation Scholas Occurrentes and one of George Soros’ close allies in Argentina, Eduardo Elsztain. Scholas Occurrentes is a papal foundation created in 2013 by Pope Francis in order to promote educational projects around the world. As I wrote earlier, in March of 2016, I was in contact with one of the representatives of Scholas Occurrentes,…Continue Reading

Illegal Means Illegal

March 6, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Illegal Means Illegal

By REY FLORES How would you like it if a stranger broke into and entered your home, made himself a sandwich, picked up the remote control, and sat down on your recliner to watch TV? Okay, let’s say this same stranger doesn’t necessarily eat your food, or sit down on your furniture to watch TV, and instead he washes your dishes, does your laundry, and sweeps and mops your floors. While this person may be a hard worker, he is still an intruder who had no business breaking and entering your home. Imagine now if 11 million intruders, closer to 18 million in reality, broke into and entered millions of homes across the United States of America, and demanded that…Continue Reading

Uncuffed From Low Expectations . . . Trump Slips Past Listless Dems To Reach Out And Reach For Stars

March 5, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Uncuffed From Low Expectations . . . Trump Slips Past Listless Dems To Reach Out And Reach For Stars

By DEXTER DUGGAN Unlike the Oscar awards ceremony’s best-picture bumble two nights earlier, longtime entertainer and new President Donald Trump, scorned by Hollywood, pulled off a precision performance before Congress on Ash Wednesday Eve. When television news and entertainment programs have to fill tightly timed slots — the evening news show can’t last two minutes too long, commercials have to make their message right on schedule — Trump managed to speak almost exactly 60 minutes, on the dot, even though he repeatedly was interrupted by applause whose length he had no control over in the U.S. House chamber. No cue cards or notices flashing from a director’s booth to quiet down now. Indeed, Trump noted to the chamber how long…Continue Reading
