Brotherhood Without Fatherhood

June 19, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Brotherhood Without Fatherhood

By DONALD DeMARCO Pope St. John Paul II made a claim in his international best-selling book, Crossing the Threshold of Hope, that may be startling to many, namely, that original sin, is, above all, an attempt “to abolish fatherhood.” Upon reflection, this statement makes a great deal of sense. After all, Adam and Eve chose to reject God and side with the serpent. This initial act of disobedience, or original sin, has cast a shadow that has covered all of human history. For the late Holy Father, the notion that God is not a loving Father, but is a tyrant or oppressor, has led to a rebellion against Him as a slave would rebel against the master who kept him…Continue Reading

Exposing Sanger In A Powerful New Educational Tool

June 18, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Exposing Sanger In A Powerful New Educational Tool

    By REY FLORES While everyone in the pro-life movement knows that Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion chain in America, few people outside the movement know the agenda on which it was founded. Beginning on June 20, American Life League’s Culture of Life Studies Program (CLSP) needs our financial help and support to produce its latest multimedia unit study for high school students. This powerful tool can save lives through education on historical facts about Margaret Sanger, who changed the course of history, leading to the killing of millions upon millions of innocent human lives. Who Was the Real Margaret Sanger? is a three-part educational video series and unit study that is in the works about Sanger, her…Continue Reading

In Defense Of Self-Defense

June 17, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on In Defense Of Self-Defense

By JUDGE ANDREW P. NAPOLITANO Most of the mass killings by gun in the United States in recent years — Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Newtown, Charleston, San Bernardino, and now Orlando — took place in venues where local or state law prohibited carrying guns, even by those lawfully licensed to do so. The government cheerfully calls these venues “gun-free zones.” They should be called killing zones. As unspeakable and horrific as is the recent slaughter in Orlando, it has become just another example of the tragic consequences of government’s interfering with the exercise of fundamental liberties. After a while, these events cease to shock; but they should not cease to cause us to re-examine what the government has done to…Continue Reading

CTE: Laudatory Goals In Education

June 16, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on CTE: Laudatory Goals In Education

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has been a frequent target of criticism in First Teachers. We make no apologies for that. The man is a hard-core leftist and has governed accordingly. Beyond that, corruption charges have been leveled against him as well. But we have to give credit where credit is due. De Blasio has cooperated with the plans to implement the career and technical education programs (CTE) initiated ten years ago during the time Michael Bloomberg was mayor. In Bloomberg’s words, “Career and technical education has been seen as an educational dead-end. We’re going to change that. College isn’t for everyone, but education is.” The reforms are designed to institute in New York…Continue Reading

Of Potties And Moral Culture

June 15, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Of Potties And Moral Culture

By LAWRENCE P. GRAYSON It almost seems a fantasy that there is a national debate about allowing people to use any public restroom they desire. In spite of the fact that only 0.1 to 0.3 percent of the population has been deemed to be transgender, 41 percent of respondents in a recent CBS-New York Times poll stated that people should be permitted into public bathrooms of their choice; 46 percent said they should be limited to bathrooms of their birth sex; apparently the remainder have no opinion or are hesitant to voice it. Not too many years ago, a scenario of men using women’s lavatories would have been a spoof for late-night comedians. Today, it is only the latest indicator…Continue Reading

Anti-Trump Agitators . . . Embarrass The Hispanic Community

June 14, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Anti-Trump Agitators . . . Embarrass The Hispanic Community

By REY FLORES Before I get into the main thrust of my argument here, let me just say that the 2016 presidential election seems more fiction than fact, and it’s getting harder and harder to believe what we hear, read, or see anymore. Election after election, we only see candidates who are either very wealthy or very well connected and none of them are any more credible than the candidate running against them. It’s a sorry state of affairs, but it is what it is, and we have to deal with it as best we can. While a choice between two people like Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is far from what we wished for, it’s what we have to…Continue Reading

What’s Ahead? . . . Last Thing Politicians May Want Is A Plain Roadmap For People

June 13, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on What’s Ahead? . . . Last Thing Politicians May Want Is A Plain Roadmap For People

By DEXTER DUGGAN Sometimes people talk about the “political roadmap,” but politics and a roadmap may be polar opposites. The straightforward map shows the plain paths to get you from one city to another. No emotion and no deceit involved. It’s like being a math major in school. (Unless you’re not good at math and suffer emotionally over it.) Politics, on the other hand, maybe doesn’t even want you to get where you want to go. You think you want Key West, Fla., as the destination, but if you really knew what’s good for you, as decided by Washington, D.C., you’d want to choose Boston. It’s like being a psychology major. And if the political plotter can keep you driving…Continue Reading

We’re Not In Bing Crosby’s America Anymore

June 12, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on We’re Not In Bing Crosby’s America Anymore

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK The Watters’ World segment of Bill O’Reilly’s nightly program on Fox News remains a guilty pleasure of mine. This is the part of the show when O’Reilly’s reporter Jesse Watters interviews “average Americans” to illustrate how out of touch they are with the issues of the day. It can be staggering to hear what they don’t know. Why do I say a “guilty” pleasure? Because I know that Watters is mocking these people and that they are not a representative sample of the country. The interviews are designed for entertainment value, to give the audience a laugh. Still, one can’t help but be astonished when one person after another cannot identify pictures of Ronald Reagan, Jimmy…Continue Reading

At Shareholders’ Meeting… NCPPR Asks If Target Has Regrets Over Bathroom Flap

COSTA MESA, Calif. — At the annual meeting of Target shareholders held in Costa Mesa, Calif., June 8, the National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR) presented a shareholder resolution designed to question the wisdom of the retailer’s seemingly unnecessary foray into national legal and policy debates and asked company executives whether they had any regrets over the public controversy regarding its open bathroom policy. Shockingly, Target CEO Brian Cornell had no coherent response to questions over whether he considers Americans who disagree with Target’s bathroom policy to be bigots. “Target has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately,” said National Center Free Enterprise Project Director Justin Danhof, Esq. “When Target responded to the controversy over North Carolina’s…Continue Reading

The Donald & The La Raza Judge

June 10, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on The Donald & The La Raza Judge

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN Before the lynching of The Donald proceeds, what exactly was it he said about that Hispanic judge? Stated succinctly, Donald Trump said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is presiding over a class-action suit against Trump University, is sticking it to him. And the judge’s bias is likely rooted in the fact that he is of Mexican descent. Can there be any defense of a statement so horrific? Just this. First, Trump has a perfect right to be angry about the judge’s rulings and to question his motives. Second, there are grounds for believing Trump is right. On May 27, Curiel, at the request of The Washington Post, made public plaintiff accusations against Trump University —…Continue Reading
