Never Trump?. . . The Case Against “Sitting Out” The Presidential Election

September 6, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Never Trump?. . . The Case Against “Sitting Out” The Presidential Election

By BRIAN CLOWES Part 1 (Editor’s Note: This is the first in a four-part series by Brian Clowes, director of research and training at Human Life International, on why “sitting out” this presidential election could lead to disaster. ) + + + “I will not take your life, but the life I leave you with is worse than death” — Alexis de Tocqueville. + + + For the past six months, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump (and Bernie Sanders, too) have dominated every media outlet every single day. This makes me earnestly wonder why a nation of 325 million people can’t do better than a totally corrupt, compulsive liar, a delusional, broken-down Socialist, and a narcissistic billionaire who can’t keep his…Continue Reading

Does Anti-Christianity Lead To Increased Military Suicides?

September 5, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Does Anti-Christianity Lead To Increased Military Suicides?

  By REY FLORES Just this past week, a 76-year-old veteran was reportedly unable to see an emergency room physician at a Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital on Long Island, New York, as he sought help for psychological problems he was experiencing. He proceeded to return to his car, pulled out a gun and killed himself. A hospital worker told The New York Times that someone “dropped the ball,” questioning why the veteran was not referred to the hospital’s mental health center. Sounds like they did drop the ball, all right, and the ball continues to drop over and over again for our military veterans. MilitaryTimes.com reported as follows on July 7, 2016: “Roughly 20 veterans a day commit suicide nationwide,…Continue Reading

Minor Candidates Siphon Vote . . . McCain’s Juggernaut Gets An Assist In Defeating Pro-Life Ward

September 4, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Minor Candidates Siphon Vote . . . McCain’s Juggernaut Gets An Assist In Defeating Pro-Life Ward

By DEXTER DUGGAN SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The forest of yard signs for incumbent John McCain’s Senate re-nomination by the driveway of a Phoenix polling place helped illustrate the overall clout he carried into the Arizona primary election. The state’s political establishment was doing all it could to weight the scales in his favor. Almost lost among his signs was one yard sign for McCain’s main GOP opponent, Kelli Ward. A significant factor in McCain’s August 30 primary victory were two minor GOP challengers also on the ballot who split the vote and stole some of Ward’s momentum, a local Republican activist told The Wanderer. As of the morning after the vote, unofficial election returns from the Arizona Secretary of State’s…Continue Reading

The Black Legend

September 3, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on The Black Legend

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK J.M., a reader from Florissant, Mo., writes to stress the need for Catholic educators to give their students perspective on the distortion of Catholic Spain’s history, what has been called the “Black Legend.” Recent examples are the campaign to vilify the life of Fr. Junipero Serra and the impact of the Spanish missions in California. One cheap shot after another. The historian Philip Wayne Powell in his 1985 book The Tree of Hate describes the Black Legend as “an image of Spain circulated through late sixteenth-century Europe, borne by means of political and religious propaganda that blackened the characters of Spaniards to such an extent that Spain became the symbol of all forces of repression, brutality,…Continue Reading

The First Step Needed… To Get The Church Out Of The Current Crisis

September 2, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on The First Step Needed… To Get The Church Out Of The Current Crisis

(Editor’s Note: The editors of LifeSiteNews.com posted this editorial on their website on August 19. All rights reserved.) + + + In his book Magisterial Authority, Fr. Chad Ripperger, Ph.D., says that “the Church will not climb out of this tumultuous period” without reversing the “practice since the Second Vatican Council onward not to police the doctrinal integrity” among bishops, priests, and theologians. The crucial observation comes at the end of nearly 50 years of destructive leniency, which has in the Francis pontificate taken on new dimensions. While under the pontificates of Pope St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI dissident bishops were indeed appointed, there was still the understanding that they had to keep their heads down. Should…Continue Reading

Lifeboat Coffee . . . Perks Pro-Lifers Up To Save Babies

September 1, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Lifeboat Coffee . . . Perks Pro-Lifers Up To Save Babies

By REY FLORES In life, there are certain people we meet who make a big first impression on us. With me, one of those people is John Lillis, founder and president of Lifeboat Coffee. I met The Skipper, as he is known to his friends, at the 2012 March for Life conference where he had a display of his new brainchild. I was across the room with American Life League’s display, so The Skipper introduced himself to me. At one point, I asked him why he was at the conference and he walked me to his display and said this, “The Skipper loves coffee as much as he loves babies, so why not sell the best coffee and help support…Continue Reading

Voting For Hillary

August 31, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Voting For Hillary

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK Am I the one who is thinking about voting for Hillary? Not a chance. I have made my peace with voting for Donald Trump, warts and all. I don’t have much hope that he “will make America great again,” but he is the only chance we have to keep the Clintons from making it far worse than it already is. I am not going to resort to the cliché about this being “the most important election of our lifetimes.” They say that about every election that I can recall. But it is an important election. Not only are the Clintons leftist ideologues; they are devious and dishonest leftist ideologues. My interest just now is with Catholics…Continue Reading

Democrat Abortion Elite . . . Tire Of Concealing Extremism, Decide To Shove It Into Open

August 30, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Democrat Abortion Elite . . . Tire Of Concealing Extremism, Decide To Shove It Into Open

By DEXTER DUGGAN Carolyn Gerster, MD, would tell of the time she visited the old Soviet Union and noticed a building that always was busy. What’s going on in there? That’s an abortion clinic, she was told. A what? A place where only abortions are performed, the young American physician was informed. Gerster was stunned at the idea of a facility whose only purpose was ending the lives of babies. This was before the permissive abortion movement began to rear its head in the United States in the 1960s. The Godless, Communist Soviet Union, no respecter of human life, wanted abortion easily available to the women under its boot. Having driven them into lives lacking hope and faith, the Communist…Continue Reading

Petition Pope Against Sex-Ed Program

August 29, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Petition Pope Against Sex-Ed Program

By REY FLORES A few years back the American Life League released a fantastic video called Hooking Kids on Sex, which garnered hundreds of thousands of views. It was a video that exposed all of the vile ways in which Planned Parenthood and others introduce children and young people to all types of disordered sexual perversions. The goal, of course, is to brainwash kids into thinking that these behaviors were “perfectly normal.” Much of what Planned Parenthood teaches is based on the 1994 book It’s Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health by Robie Harris and illustrated by Michael Emberley. Page upon page of the book shows graphic illustrations of genitalia and more. Nothing is left to…Continue Reading

But Arpaio Slugged By Judge . . . Trump Looks For Support In Different Places, Gives McCain A Hand

August 28, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on But Arpaio Slugged By Judge . . . Trump Looks For Support In Different Places, Gives McCain A Hand

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — From warning about elections being rigged to calling attention to how Republican candidates often passively have ceded black voters to the Democratic Party, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump has put pressing topics on the table that need answers but normally seem to be ignored. Maybe that’s how he got as far as he has with voters who felt voiceless in this year’s White House race. Election deception is as old as sin, and as recently confirmed when leaked emails demonstrated that the Democratic National Committee was tilted unfairly against Bernie Sanders’ presidential-primary race with Hillary Clinton. National Democratic officials resigned in embarrassment — but Hillary still grabbed her party’s nomination. With the general-election race now…Continue Reading
