D’Souza Movie Lets Us Hope . . . May Our Nation Be Freed From The Current Oppression

July 23, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN To those old enough to remember events from the last 50 years or so in the United States, filmmaker and author Dinesh D’Souza’s recently released movie, America: Imagine the World Without Her, covers some territory that’s familiar because we lived it. But whoever could have predicted it accurately way back then? These memories are a mere second in the sweep of world history, from Presidents Kennedy to Reagan to Obama, from the new world of manned moon landings to the whole world on your iPhone. Who could have forecast in the 1960s what marvels Steve Jobs would invent in this new century, or the advent of the degenerate Obama presidency, an even more incomprehensible invention to those…Continue Reading

Border Woman On Arizona Dangers . . . “The Whole Nation Is Going To Get What We Get”

July 22, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — As a southern Arizona woman spoke with The Wanderer about U.S. private citizens recently rescuing illegal aliens from likely death in two instances, this writer asked how often she hears of such events. The woman, who lives near the international border but doesn’t want to be identified because of concerns about her safety, said this isn’t the kind of topic that people want to talk about — due to their own worries about personal security. They don’t want to attract the attention of agents of the powerful, deadly Latino drug cartels who live in the people’s own areas in Arizona, she said in a telephone interview. “People don’t want to be targets of the cartel”…Continue Reading

Balkanization Beckons

July 21, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN Speaking to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Albuquerque in 2001, George W. Bush declared that, as Mexico was a friend and neighbor, “It’s so important for us to tear down our barriers and walls that might separate Mexico from the United States.” Bush succeeded. And during his tenure, millions from Mexico exploited his magnanimity to violate our laws, trample upon our sovereignty, walk into our country, and remain here. In 2007, backed by John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Teddy Kennedy, and Barack Obama, Bush backed amnesty for the 12 million people who had entered America illegally.

Bill To Overturn Hobby Lobby Decision Stalls In Senate

July 20, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By BEN JOHNSON WASHINGTON, D.C. — A bill introduced by Senate Democrats to erode the religious liberty of Americans who object to abortion-inducing drugs or contraception has stalled. The Democrat-controlled body voted 56-43 on July 16 to pass the bill, which would require business owners to offer contraceptives, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs to their employees with no co-pay, regardless of their religious views. However, the measure needed 60 votes to proceed, due to Senate cloture rules. Pro-abortion Republicans Susan Collins of Maine, Mark Kirk of Illinois, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska voted with the Democratic majority. Women Speak Out PAC, a partner of the national pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, blasted them and vulnerable Democratic Senators Kay Hagan, Mark Pryor,…Continue Reading

Uncle Sam’s Unfenced Swimming Pool

July 19, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By TERENCE P. JEFFREY Sam, the wealthiest man in his neighborhood, lives in a big beautiful house with a massive backyard punctuated by a large, deep swimming pool. While Sam is personally not very fond of children — he supports abortion on demand and believes the government should force all employers to offer female workers free sterilizations — he nonetheless lives in a neighborhood that teems with little ones. The children are particularly attracted to Sam’s beautiful pool — and, on those rare occasions when Sam is actually in his backyard, he frequently finds himself shooing these children away. Worried relatives have repeatedly warned Sam that he ought to build a fence around his yard — or at least around…Continue Reading

Is Nixon’s Resurrection Relevant To Today’s GOP?

July 18, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN One question I am asked while on tour for my new book, The Greatest Comeback (available at amazon.com), on the resurrection of Richard Nixon, is: Does Nixon’s rise, from crushing defeats in 1960 and 1962, and the debacle his party suffered in 1964, to capturing the White House and beginning a string of five victories in six presidential elections, have relevance for today’s GOP? Can the “Great Silent Majority” of yesteryear be replicated? The answer is probably not. For while there are similarities between the America of 1968, and of today, the differences are greater. The similarities: By the late 1960s, as today, the country was pivoting away from a Democratic Party and president that seemed…Continue Reading

Trouble Brewing For Common Core

July 17, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK It would be understandable if a parent or taxpayer felt it was hopeless to stand up against Common Core, the Obama administration’s attempt to establish education standards for the country. It is not easy to take on the federal government, especially when it offers millions of dollars in federal funds to those who go along with its wishes. But this is not the time to give up. All across the country we find examples of states rejecting Common Core. Time is not on the side of the Obama administration on this one. As people find out what is in Common Core, more and more of them want no part of it. And the more states that…Continue Reading

Spying On Innocents

July 16, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By ANDREW P. NAPOLITANO In what appears to be one of Edward Snowden’s final revelations, the former CIA and NSA agent has demonstrated conclusively that the National Security Agency has collected and analyzed the contents of emails, text messages, and mobile and landline telephone calls from nine non-targeted U.S. residents for every one U.S. resident it has targeted. This puts the lie to the government’s claims that it has only collected metadata — identifying markers such as phone numbers and email addresses — and not content from unsuspecting and unsuspected Americans. It puts the lie to the government’s claims that it has studiously avoided prying into the private lives of Americans, in whom it has no intelligence-related or lawful interest.…Continue Reading

Unable To Argue Facts . . . Hobbyhorse Liberals Batter The Courtroom Table

July 15, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN It was nice to see videos of the families of small-business creators vindicated in the June 30 U.S. Supreme Court opinion upholding religious conscience, the Greens of Oklahoma and the Hahns of Pennsylvania. These were the sorts of people who actually “built it” in classic American achievement stories, without Barack Obama claiming to be responsible for their business success or having control over their souls. Of course, Obama had thought it was his nosy business to batter their souls into line with his iron-fisted mandates. If the Greens had failed to offer even one of 20 “contraceptive” methods in employee health-insurance coverage, including abortifacients, their company would have been fined nearly a half-billion dollars a year! A…Continue Reading

Who Is Acting More Christ-Like… The Koch Brothers Or Hillary Clinton?

July 14, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK Whom would Jesus call upon us to emulate in economic matters? Hillary Clinton or the Koch brothers? I am not sure. Speaking for our Lord is beyond my pay grade. But I insist that Hillary is not the self-evident answer, even though liberal Democrats regularly argue that support for the big government programs aimed at “social justice” that Hillary favors are the correct application of Jesus’ call for us to “love our neighbor as ourselves.” (For those who don’t pay attention to the press releases of the modern American left, the Koch — pronounced “Coke” — brothers are Kansas entrepreneurs regularly denounced by liberal Democrats for their role in promoting conservative, free-market principles, and the politicians…Continue Reading
