The Eclipse Of White Christian America

August 2, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on The Eclipse Of White Christian America

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK I think it safe to say that American voters in the early 1960s would not have backed the 1965 Immigration and Naturalization Act if they realized it would lead to white Christian Americans becoming a minority in the United States by the mid-21st century. Lyndon Johnson and Ted Kennedy understood that. They made repeated assurances that the new law would not change the racial and ethnic mix of the American people. Were Johnson, Kennedy, and the other politicians of the era lying? Or did they merely fail to foresee the impact of the new law, especially how its goal of “uniting families” would give preference to relatives of immigrants from Third World countries already in the…Continue Reading

A Movie Review . . . Hillary Is Only Part Of The Democrats’ Moral Problems In America

August 1, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on A Movie Review . . . Hillary Is Only Part Of The Democrats’ Moral Problems In America

By DEXTER DUGGAN The title of scholar Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, might better be inverted, with the words about the party’s history coming before mention of Hillary Clinton and her America, because much of the movie isn’t about, but leads up to, her. And the party’s dismaying history is no secret, just neglected. Still, in this election year, highlighting her name is the topical thing to do. Or will it yet turn out that D’Souza should have highlighted Bernie Sanders instead? Or Elizabeth Warren? With new convulsions emerging from seriously damaging Democratic emails just as that party’s national convention was about to begin in Philadelphia, and more emails apparently still to…Continue Reading

Kaine Enabled

July 31, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Kaine Enabled

By REY FLORES I could only imagine what the late Wanderer columnist Thomas Roeser would have to say concerning the current state of affairs today, especially about the circus that is the 2016 presidential fraud of an election, and specifically about “Catholic” Tim Kaine as the Democratic vice-presidential candidate. Roeser would probably have been as confounded, perplexed, bewildered, and ticked off as any of us are, but I am certain that he would definitely express himself with nothing less than brutal frankness about this whole mess. Since we are remembering him and before we continue, let’s please take a moment to pray for the repose of Mr. Roeser’s soul. Thank you. The latest “Catholic” politician to hit the main stage…Continue Reading

Defying Catholic Teaching . . . Kaine Joins Hillary On Her Mountain Of Corruption

July 30, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Defying Catholic Teaching . . . Kaine Joins Hillary On Her Mountain Of Corruption

By DEXTER DUGGAN One description of U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine immediately refuted itself. The Virginian was described as “squeaky clean” in a July 22 profile of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s choice to be her vice presidential running mate. Even if Kaine actually had been so squeaky, he quickly would have disqualified himself from that description upon agreeing to run alongside the mountain of corruption, callousness, and deceit that calls itself Hillary. If you pride yourself on your high ethics, you don’t agree to help win the White House for a restlessly, relentlessly divisive woman who knows no lows as to how deeply she can descend. A man who lies down with vipers will get up filled with poison. Among her…Continue Reading

A Culture Of Life 101… “The Third Time Around: The History Of Euthanasia In The United States”

July 29, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on A Culture Of Life 101… “The Third Time Around: The History Of Euthanasia In The United States”

By BRIAN CLOWES Part 1 (Editor’s Note: Brian Clowes has been director of research and training at Human Life International since 1995. For an electronic copy of chapter 23 of The Facts of Life, “Euthanasia,” e-mail him at bclowes@hli.org.) + + + “Everyone has a right for suicide, because a person has a right to determine what will or will not be done to his body” — Jack “The Dripper” Kevorkian. + + + The Courts: Mighty Engines for Social Change. In Nazi Germany and the Netherlands, the euthanasia movement was led by doctors. In the United States, however, it is being led by a handful of judges. Although the leadership cadre is different, the result is the same —…Continue Reading

A Marian Study Center . . . Couple Hopes To Find Others Interested In Starting St. Kolbe Project

July 28, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on A Marian Study Center . . . Couple Hopes To Find Others Interested In Starting St. Kolbe Project

By DEXTER DUGGAN SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Books have been a steppingstone through life for scholarly Remi Ruiz, who has collected them for decades. He met his future wife, Alma, at a bookstore. Today, if he wanted, he could pave the floors beneath their feet at home with books, if that wasn’t being disrespectful of the printed word. Welcoming a visitor to their bookcase-lined living room that looks more like a library in this Phoenix suburb, the Ruizes speak of their dream to put their thousands of volumes into service at a hoped-for center for the Blessed Mother as St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe revered her, the Immaculata, the Mother of the Savior who would lead others to Christ. “One of our…Continue Reading

Ignoring The Obvious

July 27, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Ignoring The Obvious

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK There must be some old figure of speech — or maybe an Aesop’s fable — that expresses the idea that certain truths go unrecognized because people fear that mentioning them will result in retaliation from powerful forces in society. But I can’t think of it at the moment. The Hans Christian Andersen story about the emperor’s new clothes comes close, but does not cover all the bases, such as what happened recently at Baylor University. Baylor is a school affiliated with the Southern Baptist Church, with an openly stated commitment to Christian beliefs. It is also a football powerhouse. Nothing inherently incompatible about that. Catholics like to think that the University of Notre Dame can be…Continue Reading

Is The Party Over For Bushism?

July 26, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Is The Party Over For Bushism?

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN Neither George W. Bush, the Republican Party nominee in 2000 and 2004, nor Jeb, the dethroned Prince of Wales, went to Cleveland. Nor did John McCain or Mitt Romney, the last two nominees. These former leaders would like it thought that high principle keeps them away from a GOP convention that would nominate Donald Trump. Petulance, however, must surely play a part. Bush Republicans feel unappreciated, and understandably so. For Trump’s nomination represents not only a rejection of their legacy but a repudiation of much of post-Cold War party dogma. America crossed a historic divide and entered a new era. Even should Trump lose, there is likely no going back. Trump has attacked NAFTA, MFN for…Continue Reading

Powerful Vox Vitae Pro-Life Camp To Launch in L.A.

July 25, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Powerful Vox Vitae Pro-Life Camp To Launch in L.A.

By REY FLORES If anyone has followed my columns throughout the years, you’ll know that I am both pro-life and Hispanic. It burns me up to see how many people in the Hispanic communities throughout our nation fall for the lies of Planned Parenthood and the abortion and contraception industries altogether. Being that Hispanics are the fastest-growing minority in these United States, the evil geniuses at Planned Parenthood have their eyes set on these communities. Cecile Richards and the rest of Planned Parenthood have dollar signs in their eyes when they look at young Hispanic people. Along with the lies that the regressive left-wing Democratic Party extremists continue to use to pander to Hispanics, Planned Parenthood has ramped up efforts…Continue Reading

Hate Speech Laws

July 24, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Hate Speech Laws

By JUDE P. DOUGHERTY The Cato Institute in its Policy Analysis bulletin of May 24 has published a timely article by Robert Corn Revere on “Hate Speech Laws.” Revere is a Washington-based lawyer who practices First Amendment and media law. Whether intentional or not, racial tension is promoted daily by big media as they give coverage to what otherwise might be construed as minor events in Baton Rouge or St. Paul. Protests in one part of the country or another against police brutality (never alleged police brutality) are treated as national events and in major newspapers, they are given front-page treatment under headlines such as “officers ought to be held accountable.” In the context of discussions of hate speech, the…Continue Reading
