Political Path Continues To Surprise . . . Is The Campaign Scene Just More Entertainment TV?

May 9, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Political Path Continues To Surprise . . . Is The Campaign Scene Just More Entertainment TV?

By DEXTER DUGGAN After taping the scene is over on the movie set, the dead actors get up and walk away. They never were dead; they just dropped down on cue as part of the entertainment. It’s all pretend and box office. As the tone shifted sharply after Donald Trump romped to another commanding victory in the Indiana primary, on May 3, pages in the script were yanked out and new lines were written for the next scene. No longer was presidential foe Ted Cruz the despicable character he’d been that morning when Trump howled that Cruz’s father was involved somehow in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Now Ted was “a tough, smart guy” with “an…Continue Reading

A Happy And Blessed Mother’s Day To You!

By REY FLORES “The roots of the modern American Mother’s Day date back to the 19th century. In the years before the Civil War (1861-1865), Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia helped start ‘Mothers’ Day Work Clubs’ to teach local women how to properly care for their children. These clubs later became a unifying force in a region of the country still divided over the Civil War. In 1868 Jarvis organized ‘Mothers’ Friendship Day,’ at which mothers gathered with former Union and Confederate soldiers to promote reconciliation.” The preceding paragraph comes from the History.com website. There we also learn that Jarvis was discontented about the later commercialization of the holiday after it was made a national holiday in 1914. Like most…Continue Reading

John Boehner Voices Invective . . . But Notre Dame Ducks On Question Of Honoring His “Civility”

May 7, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on John Boehner Voices Invective . . . But Notre Dame Ducks On Question Of Honoring His “Civility”

By DEXTER DUGGAN When John Boehner inexplicably tore into Sen. Ted Cruz as “Lucifer in the flesh,” and something else nasty, during an appearance at California’s Stanford University on April 27, the former U.S. House speaker made himself the second major embarrassment to a different institution of higher education way back in the Midwest, Notre Dame in Indiana. The foul-mouthed Boehner already had been announced as one of two prominent Catholics scheduled to receive the South Bend school’s Laetare Medal, which that school itself described as “the oldest and most prestigious honor accorded to American Catholics,” in mid-May. The medal was to be presented at the school’s commencement ceremony on May 15 to recognize the two recipients’ “civility” and rejection…Continue Reading

Why Russia Resents Us

May 6, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Why Russia Resents Us

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN Friday, April 29, a Russian SU-27 did a barrel roll over a U.S. RC-135 over the Baltic, the second time in two weeks. Also in April, the U.S. destroyer Donald Cook, off Russia’s Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad, was twice buzzed by Russian planes. Vladimir Putin’s message: Keep your spy planes and ships a respectable distance away from us. Apparently, we have not received it. On April 29, Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Work announced that 4,000 NATO troops, including two U.S. battalions, will be moved into Poland and the Baltic States, right on Russia’s border. “The Russians have been doing a lot of snap exercises right up against the border with a lot of troops,” says…Continue Reading

Defending A “Pro-Life” City… Human Life International Visits The Philippines

By BRIAN CLOWES “There is an ideological colonization we have to be careful of that tries to destroy the family. Just as our peoples were able to say no to the period of colonization, as families we have to be very wise and very strong with fortitude to say no to these initiatives of colonization that could destroy the family” — Pope Francis. + + + The most prominent feature you see when flying into the southern Luzon city of Legazpi is the most perfectly symmetrical mountain in the world — the 8,081-foot-high Mayon volcano. Today it was showing off by emitting a thick trail of steam from its summit. As we stepped into the simmering heat of the city’s…Continue Reading

Robert E. Lee: The Denigration Of A Worthy Man

May 4, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Robert E. Lee: The Denigration Of A Worthy Man

By JUDE DOUGHERTY Hamilton Reed Armstrong is one of the Western world’s foremost sculptors, with remarkable pieces that are to be found in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, and throughout North America. Not to mention Zambia. A major example of his work graces a town square in Malaga. The sculptor of heads of state and other notables, Armstrong has most recently completed a bust of Robert E. Lee. Apart from an online photograph, you are not likely to see Lee’s image where you might expect to find it, that is, at the Richmond Art Gallery, the President’s Office at Washington and Lee University, or even at the Custis-Lee Mansion in Arlington, Va. Political correctness has taken its toll. Jefferson, John Adams,…Continue Reading

May 3, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Pro-Life Rallies Around Nation . . . Protest PP Tax Funding, Offer Support To Videos Maker

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — While ex-Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson’s new book about former abortion workers is titled The Walls Are Talking, the sidewalk was talking outside the local Planned Parenthood headquarters here. Messages in pastel chalk by youngsters on the city sidewalk were part of the pro-life observance on April 23, while other pro-lifers gathered at locations around the United States to protest tax funding for PP and to express support for David Daleiden and his Center for Medical Progress, targeted in bogus legal attacks for making videos revealing PP’s sale of aborted babies’ body parts. “Your baby wants to LIVE!” said one of the chalked messages here. “All babies want to get borned!” said another. “Love…Continue Reading

Pro-Life Activist Says . . . CMP Videos’ Facts “Will Break” Abortion Clinics

May 2, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Pro-Life Activist Says . . . CMP Videos’ Facts “Will Break” Abortion Clinics

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Undercover videos by the California-based Center for Medical Progress have put abortionists “definitely on the defense. They’re playing defense because the information . . . released will break them. It’s just a matter of time,” one of the CMP’s founding board members said in an interview here. Troy Newman, who also is president of the Kansas-based Operation Rescue national pro-life organization, told The Wanderer that the video evidence “has had the abortion industry on the ropes so badly that they’ll stop at nothing to keep the Holy Grail of the left, which is abortion.” CMP is under legal assault from Sacramento to San Francisco to Houston because abortionists “have to sully our name and lie…Continue Reading

Chris Matthews Versus The Donald

May 1, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Chris Matthews Versus The Donald

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK There is no question that Chris Matthews was acting as a partisan and a cheap-shot artist during his MSNBC interview with Donald Trump a few weeks ago. He was looking for a “gotcha” moment to serve the Democratic Party candidate in the upcoming presidential election. He got what he wanted: It was prudent for Trump to walk back his initial comment about punishing women who procure abortions. Hillary and Bernie Sanders were jumping all over it. In fact, they are still are. Just to refresh your memory about the exchange. Matthews, with fiery eyes and clenched jaw, pressed Trump repeatedly about whether women who have abortions would be punished if Trump gets his way and abortion…Continue Reading
