All rights reserved.) +    +    + The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published the past week an “advanced notice of proposed rulemaking” on “vehicle-to-vehicle communications.” What NHTSA is proposing could begin a transformation in the American transportation system that makes our lives better and freer — or gives government more power over where we go and when. In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the “privacy” of American drivers. “This document initiates rulemaking that would propose to create…Continue Reading

Planned Parenthood . . . An Enemy Of The Catholic Church

August 31, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By REY FLORES People often tell us that if Satan were to show himself to us, he wouldn’t necessarily appear as the mustachioed, horned, goateed caricature wearing all red and carrying a trident. No, the Devil would certainly present himself as someone good, someone helpful; someone you could trust. Do you know who has done that so effectively since 1921? Margaret Sanger and the American Birth Control League, today known as the International Planned Parenthood Federation. For almost 100 years, Planned Parenthood has come off as the friend to the poor disenfranchised woman, toiling away in her domestic bondage to a (gasp) husband and children. Imagine that — a woman being subjected to being a wife and homemaker and expected…Continue Reading

Liberalism’s Deadly One-Two Punch

August 30, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK It has become the stock retort of secular leftists when it is pointed out to them that the wealth redistribution programs of liberal Democrats are doing more harm than good to the “beneficiaries”: Rather than deal with the proposition, they accuse the person making the argument of being misanthropic and cynical. Sometimes racism gets thrown into the mix as well, with the contention that opposition to social spending would not be as intense if the beneficiaries were white. At other times, the accusation will be that the motive of critics of the welfare state is not a concern about destroying the initiative of the poor, as much as a selfish interest in keeping their taxes low.…Continue Reading

Should Religion Be Private?

August 29, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By DONALD DeMARCO From the time of the early Roman emperors, the state has sought, sometimes vigorously, to gain control over the Catholic Church. St. Augustine, in the fourth century, wrote eloquently and convincingly about the radical difference between the City of God and the City of Man. In the following century, Pope St. Gelasius I (492-496) confronted Emperor Anastasius who wanted to absorb religion into the state, both forcefully and successfully. In dealing with the emperor, he was at one with the great medieval Pontiffs. “There are two powers by which chiefly this world is ruled,” he wrote, “the sacred authority of the priesthood and the authority of the kings. And of these the authority of the priests is…Continue Reading

More On New York City’s Elite Schools

August 28, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK In the July 24 edition of First Teachers there was a discussion of the efforts of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to change the admissions process — currently based on a single test — to the city’s elite high schools, such as Stuyvesant High School, Bronx High School of Science, Brooklyn Latin, and Brooklyn Tech. De Blasio’s goal is find a way to increase the black and Hispanic enrollment at these schools, which is currently under 10 percent, in a city where the ethnic makeup of the public schools’ 1.1 million students is 15 percent Asian, 15 percent white, 40 percent Hispanic, and 28 percent black. A reader we will identify as W.W. weighed…Continue Reading

When Tracking Illegal Immigrants . . . Just Follow The Money Trail To The Government Rainbow

August 27, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN   PHOENIX — Unfairness and even cruelty often are prominently cited as reasons not to send young Latino “Dreamers” in the United States back to their home countries. Brought here as little kids by their parents, the argument goes, they know little or nothing of the Spanish language, culture, or native land, so the U.S. practically is their home anyway. Watch how rapidly this argument vanishes when the alien minor arrived in the U.S. just last month, and Barack Obama’s government is determined to keep her here for manipulative political reasons. The minor doesn’t know any English? Doesn’t understand our cultural setting? Doesn’t have any parents here? No problem. Obama will furtively imbed her somewhere or the…Continue Reading

Planned Parenthood Office… Draws Attention For Shielding Alleged Serial Rapist

August 26, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN TEMPE, Ariz. — A small yellowish-tan strip mall here at 1250 E. Apache Blvd. includes ethnic restaurants and a coin-operated laundry convenient to students from the main campus at behemoth Arizona State University, located a short walk to the west. ASU has more than 60,000 students at the campus, and another 12,000 or so at its three other sites here in the metropolitan Phoenix area, making it the largest public university by enrollment in the United States. But the “L”-shaped little strip mall has even a bigger behemoth’s outlet as a tenant, a Planned Parenthood office. The third-of-a-million annual permissive abortions that government-funded Planned Parenthood inflicts would wipe out ASU’s total enrollment by roughly four and two-thirds…Continue Reading

Is Ferguson Our Future?

August 25, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN “America is on trial,” said Rev. Al Sharpton from the pulpit of Greater St. Mark’s Family Church in Ferguson, Mo. At issue, the August 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, on the main street of that city of 22,000, a neighbor community to Jennings, where this writer lived in the mid-1960s. Brown, an 18-year-old African-American, was shot multiple times by Darren Wilson, a 28-year-old white police officer with an unblemished record in six years on the force in Jennings and Ferguson. From his patrol car, Wilson ordered Brown out of the street where he was walking and blocking traffic. A fight followed. Wilson appears to have been punched in the face. One police report says that…Continue Reading

Honoring The Dignity Of Our Miscarried Children

August 24, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By REY FLORES Miscarriage is a very real and very painful reality for many of us. While society and the medical community for the most part will dismiss a miscarriage as yet another medical occurrence without merit or value, what it really is, is a death in our families. When my wife and I lost our sixth baby, it was at 12 weeks into Mary’s pregnancy. It was especially difficult because Mary announced that we were having a baby on our daughter Xotchil’s ninth birthday, as a sort of present to her. When we had to share the news of our miscarriage with our other children, particularly Xotchil, it was a sad day for our family. Having been blessed five…Continue Reading

A Movie Review… This Game Stands Tall

August 23, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By REY FLORES I’m not certain, but it sure seems like there is a Christian rebellion of sorts going on in the filmmaking industry, and I for one am glad of it. Sure, it isn’t the major Hollywood studios and its mostly independent studios producing quality Christian films, but it sure is a welcome respite from the usual fare of sex, drugs, violence and a seemingly endless stream of recycled comic-book heroes. In the new film When the Game Stands Tall, we welcome back one of our favorite actors who played probably the best Jesus in movie history. Jim Caviezel returns to the big screen as a middle-aged football coach who has his hands full with a football team that…Continue Reading
