Hillary’s Gender Politics

April 19, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By REY FLORES One thing about having bad government is that it makes for good talk radio and punditry. On my drive home recently, I was listening to conservative radio favorite Mark Levin, and while I don’t necessarily subscribe to everything Levin says, I must say that he nailed it when he covered Hillary Clinton’s official announcement that she is running for president. Levin pointed out how much Hillary Clinton talks about how the country is ready for a woman president and how often Clinton likes to use that tired old crutch of being a woman as if that were the only reason to vote for her. It’s pure and simple gender politics for the simple-minded. Since when does gender…Continue Reading

The Obama Doctrine

April 18, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN At the Summit of the Americas where he met with Raul Castro, the 83-year-old younger brother of Fidel, President Obama provided an insight into where he is taking us, and why: “The United States will not be imprisoned by the past — we’re looking to the future. I’m not interested in having battles that frankly started before I was born.” Obama was not yet born when Fidel rolled into Havana, January 1, 1959. He was one year old during the missile crisis. His mother belonged to a 1960s generation that welcomed the Cuban Revolution. His father came from an African generation that won independence from the European empires. Churchill’s bust may have resided in the Oval…Continue Reading

An Open Letter To His Holiness Pope Francis

April 16, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

   Given the controversy and confusion surrounding the 2014 Synod on the Family, the staff of The Wanderer and its supporters thought it appropriate to address Pope Francis with an open letter (letter follows below) appealing for clarification from His Holiness on those matters which are causing great concern for both clergy and laity. In an age when Catholics and other Christians alike have been fighting the forces that are out to destroy the traditional family, clear and concise clarification from His Holiness is needed more than ever. We remind our readers that The Wanderer has always been faithful to the Magisterium and will continue to be, for without Peter there is no Church. Catholic doctrine does not and cannot…Continue Reading

Can The President Kill Americans?

April 15, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By ANDREW P. NAPOLITANO Can the president kill you? The short answer is: Yes, but not legally. Yet, President Obama has established a secret process that involves officials from the Departments of Justice and Defense, the CIA, and the White House senior staff whereby candidates are proposed for execution, and the collective wisdom of the officials then recommends execution to the president, who then accepts or rejects the recommendation. If the recommendation is to kill and the president rejects the recommendation, the CIA is directed to arrest the person. If the president accepts the recommendation to kill, then death is ordered. This is not unlike the procedure used in the reign of the monstrous British King Henry VIII, except that…Continue Reading

Documentary In Production . . . Shows How Honduras Can Help Itself

April 14, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN Impacting culture for Christ is the goal of California’s John Paul the Great Catholic University, located in northern San Diego County. A key tool the school uses is educating students in media production, aided by experts from Southern California’s entertainment industry. Among recent items at the “news center” at the school’s website (www.jpcatholic.com) is an article about a former John Paul the Great student, Brian Olson, working on a documentary about the positive side of Honduras, despite problems the Central American country faces. It’s titled La Otra Cara, meaning The Other Face or The Other Side. The website article, “Documentary aims to show ‘another side’ of Honduras,” says the production company, Lush Works, recently launched a small…Continue Reading

Arizona Governor… Signs Bill Informing Women Drug Abortions May Be Reversed

April 13, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — A reminder that elections have consequences occurred when Arizona’s new Republican governor, Doug Ducey, signed a pro-life bill requiring that doctors tell patients the effects of the “abortion pill” may be reversed if quick action is taken. It was the first such measure in the nation to become law. And, on the tax-funding issue, the new law also prohibits plans on Arizona’s federally run health-care exchange from offering coverage for elective abortions. During the 2014 gubernatorial election here, pro-abortion liberal Democrat Fred DuVal said at a candidate forum that a 14-year-old girl shouldn’t need parental consent for an abortion because the young teenager should be able to exercise her own “reproductive freedom,” without her parents’…Continue Reading

A Movie Review . . . Little Boy: All Things Are Possible

April 12, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

  By REY FLORES Little Boy is a cinematic triumph. This movie is simply one of the best movies I have ever had the pleasure of watching. Perhaps I am a little biased because I actually heard a fundraising pitch back in 2010 for the movie, a pitch made by filmmaker Alejandro Monteverde himself. While Monteverde described what his new project would be, little did I imagine that he would accomplish the glorious film he did, but enough about that. Little Boy takes us into another era when America was a much different place — a time when our country was still united by traditional family values and when men were expected to be men and women were happy to…Continue Reading

Political Researcher . . . Offers Idea For Winning GOP Team In 2016

April 12, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Conservatives must step up their efforts to prevail in the 2016 elections or else face the threat of being swallowed up by a “one-party state” empowered by massive illegal immigration and engineered by radical leftist Barack Obama, a researcher, author, and political activist warned a meeting here. New Zealander Trevor Loudon was on another of his speaking tours of the United States when he appeared before the Arizona Project Tea Party here on April 6, the day after Easter. After reviewing current developments, Loudon went on to offer hope for how a Republican presidential team could campaign in 2016. His talk occurred just after many Americans had been shocked by the vehemence and scope of…Continue Reading
