Bigotry And Blood Mark Planned Parenthood

January 24, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Bigotry And Blood Mark Planned Parenthood

By BILL DONOHUE (Editor’s Note: Bill Donohue is president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights [www.catholicleague.org]. On January 19, he released this commentary about a short film, 100 Years, celebrating the centenary of Planned Parenthood.) + + + Lena Dunham was a great choice to co-produce this Planned Parenthood propaganda film 100 Years. She is not only a confessed child abuser (see dailywire.com for July 22, 2016), she recently regretted not having an abortion. Having Meryl Streep do some of the narrating was also wise. When she was a freshman at Yale, she took an acting class where she was asked to act out a death scene: she chose to perform an abortion on herself (see vulture.com…Continue Reading

Munich’s Subways And Edmund Burke

January 23, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Munich’s Subways And Edmund Burke

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK My Christmas holiday was not the usual one this year. I spent the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day in Munich, watching my grandson’s Connecticut high school hockey team playing in a tournament against German and Austrian teams. And why would that be of interest to anyone? This is The Wanderer, not Sports Illustrated. (Just for the record: the Connecticut kids won all three of their games against some very good German and Austrian teams.) What prompted me to bring up my time in Munich was something I read by Victor Davis Hanson in National Review the day after I returned home. Davis described in his January 4 column his exasperation with life in the…Continue Reading

An Open Letter To President Donald J. Trump

January 22, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on An Open Letter To President Donald J. Trump

By REY FLORES Congratulations, Mr. President! Likewise, congratulations to our new first lady, Melania Trump, and to your entire family! As an American, I have always been proud of our great nation even when things looked bleak, especially during the last eight years. When things got tough, that’s when I became more involved in helping to make positive changes for our nation instead of simply complaining. Little did I imagine a few years back when I attended one of the very first Tea Party rallies in Joliet, Ill., that we would come back stronger than ever as a nation, led by a proven and strong leader like you. I guess it took an extremist and radical president like Obama to…Continue Reading

After Eight Long Years… Beleaguered Trump Has To Revive The Remnants Of Obama’d Nation

January 21, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on After Eight Long Years… Beleaguered Trump Has To Revive The Remnants Of Obama’d Nation

By DEXTER DUGGAN One kind of “marriage inequality” grew far more unfair by the end of the Obama era, but social radicals who’d successfully pushed for “same-sex marriage” were okay with this particular imbalance. President Barack Obama had an eight-year honeymoon with the dominant media, but successor Donald Trump isn’t getting a single day, not even a half-day, of media honeymoon, and he wouldn’t even if Trump were to get married three more times and wrote “Just Married” in iridescent paint on the White House that Obama had lighted with the gay rainbow. More than ever, dominant media identified themselves with Obama’s pro-immorality value system and forcefully attacked what looked like any potential dead end to nightmares like his supporters…Continue Reading

Reagan And Trump: American Nationalists

January 20, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Reagan And Trump: American Nationalists

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN Since World War II, the two men who have most terrified this city by winning the presidency are Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump. And they have much in common. Both came out of the popular culture, Reagan out of Hollywood, Trump out of a successful reality TV show. Both possessed the gifts of showmen — extraordinarily valuable political assets in a television age that deals cruelly with the uncharismatic. Both became instruments of insurgencies out to overthrow the establishment of the party whose nomination they were seeking. Reagan emerged as the champion of the postwar conservatism that had captured the Republican Party with Barry Goldwater’s nomination in 1964. His victory in 1980 came at the apogee…Continue Reading

Our Not-So-Elite Elites

January 19, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Our Not-So-Elite Elites

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK It is a comment that you hear all the time from exasperated parents trying to figure out how they will ever pay the cost of sending their children to college: “This is crazy. How can anyone afford these skyrocketing college costs? Colleges are going to price themselves out of the market.” To date, this frustration has not lead to a significant drop in college applications. Most parents, especially those who are the first in their family to attend college, continue to see a college education as the necessary path toward respectability and a decent job. They find it hard to recommend that their children learn a trade instead, even when they hear stories about small business…Continue Reading

Why Left Opposes Sessions: He’s Right; They’re Wrong

January 18, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Why Left Opposes Sessions: He’s Right; They’re Wrong

By TERENCE P. JEFFREY (Editor’s Note: Terence P. Jeffrey is the editor-in-chief of CNSnews.com. Creators Syndicate distributes his column. All rights reserved.) + + + Richard Allen, President Ronald Reagan’s first national security adviser, once wrote an essay for Human Events describing a visit he made to Reagan’s California home in 1977. Allen went there, he wrote, to ask Reagan to support his campaign for governor of New Jersey. He and the future president ended up talking about foreign policy. “I’d like to tell you of my theory of the Cold War,” Reagan told Allen. “Some people think that I am simplistic, but there is a fundamental difference between being simplistic and having simple answers to complex questions.” “So,” Reagan…Continue Reading

As Conference Begins . . . New Courage Director Pleased By Reception Of Its Message For Chastity

January 17, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on As Conference Begins . . . New Courage Director Pleased By Reception Of Its Message For Chastity

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — The director of an international ministry to Catholics who want to follow Church teaching on same-sex attractions has been “very pleasantly surprised by . . . what a welcome reception we get to the message that we bring,” despite secular culture’s goal to define homosexual activity as normal. Fr. Philip Bochanski, the new executive director of Courage International (couragerc.org), headquartered in Norwalk, Conn., spoke with The Wanderer shortly before the organization’s three-day “Truth and Love Conference 2017” began here at St. Paul’s Church. Bochanski said about 250 people including clergy and lay professionals were expected to attend the international gathering from January 9 through 11 on providing pastoral care. A brochure described the conference as…Continue Reading

Of Cabbages And Kings

January 16, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Of Cabbages And Kings

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK “The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of many things: Of shoes — and ships — and sealing wax — Of cabbages — and kings.” What do you think Hillary’s old mentor Saul Alinsky would say about the influence-peddling and money-grubbing couple Bill and Hillary turned out to be? Don’t you wish you could ask the crowds that applauded wildly and squealed with delight when Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura announced their intentions to run for public office, to explain to us what they were thinking? We can see now that being a glib amateur, professing to apply common sense to the mess made by professional politicians, isn’t enough. And aren’t you a bit…Continue Reading

Make America Great Again… It’s A Mission, Not Just A Slogan

January 15, 2017 Frontpage Comments Off on Make America Great Again… It’s A Mission, Not Just A Slogan

  By REY FLORES This week, like it or not, Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. For the record, I am very happy about this. There are, however, a large number of malcontent elitists, from those who live in mansions in Beverly Hills and Hollywood to the high-rollers who dwell in the penthouses of New York City and the pricey real estate in Washington, D.C., who are beside themselves. There is nothing worse than the hypocrisy of “limousine liberals” who like to imagine that they are “down with the people,” but in reality they are completely out of touch with the real Americans who help pay for their expensive…Continue Reading
