Horseback Punishment

June 26, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Horseback Punishment

By BARBARA SIMPSON If you saw the photographs in the news from last September, you will not forget them. Bold pictures of Border Patrol agents, on horseback, using reins to control their horses, and surrounded by Haitian aliens who were trying to get into this country illegally.The agents were doing their duty — attempting to prevent the intrusion into the United States.The problem with the pictures is that when the media and the politicians saw them, they jumped to the conclusion that the Border Patrol Agents were beating the aliens with whips.For anyone with no background in how you handle horses, it could be a natural conclusion. The only problem was — it was wrong!The agents weren’t beating the aliens…Continue Reading

The Swamp Vs. America… Biden Policies Are Making America Poorer

June 25, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on The Swamp Vs. America… Biden Policies Are Making America Poorer

By STEPHEN MOORE I’ve been struck by the opinion divide on the state of the economy between people with real jobs in America and the elite opinions in Washington.Gallup and other primary and reputable pollsters find that the public is very worried. About 2 in 10 respondents rate the U.S. economy as good or great. That compares with nearly 6 in 10 people who thought the economy was good or great throughout Donald Trump’s presidency. In other words, three times the number of people liked the way things were going under Trump policies than feel the same way about Bidenomics.The Washington Post, The Atlantic, and other rags inside the Beltway — the one place on the planet that gets richer…Continue Reading

By ANDREA GAGLIARDUCCI ROME (CNA) — Pope Francis appointed a new head of the Order of Malta on Monday, June 14 even before the funeral of its previous leader Fra’ Marco Luzzago, who died suddenly on June 7.The Canadian-born lawyer Fra’ John T. Dunlap will serve as the lieutenant of the Grand Master, a role that Luzzago held for two years. Dunlap was sworn in on June 14, the day of Luzzago’s funeral.The lieutenant of the Grand Master is normally elected for a one-year term. But in 2021, Pope Francis extended Luzzago’s tenure indefinitely until the election of a new Grand Master of the order, a position traditionally held for life.Now, by direct order of Pope Francis, Dunlap is the…Continue Reading

June 23, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on AOC And Democrat “Squad” Members… Voted Against Protecting Supreme Court Justices

By GABE KAMINSKY WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeNews) — Democratic “Squad” members in the House voted against a bill Tuesday, June 14 extending security for Supreme Court justices despite spending a combined six figures on private security in 2021, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records and House Disbursements.Missouri Cong. Cori Bush, Massachusetts Cong. Ayanna Pressley, Michigan Cong. Rashida Tlaib, as well as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman of New York, are among the 27 Democratic members who voted against the approved security measure. Still, these lawmakers spent roughly $348,000 on private security in 2021.The legislation comes as Republican-appointed justices get targeted by pro-abortion demonstrators after a leaked draft opinion showed the Court will likely overturn the landmark abortion case Roe v.…Continue Reading

Beware: 100 Percent Green Energy Could Destroy The Planet

June 22, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Beware: 100 Percent Green Energy Could Destroy The Planet

By STEPHEN MOORE The untold story about “green energy” is that it can’t possibly be scaled up to provide anywhere near the energy to replace fossil fuels. (Unless we are headed back to the stone ages, which is what some of the “de-growth” advocates favor.)Right now, the United States gets about 70 percent of its energy from fossil fuels. To go to zero over the next 20 years would be economically catastrophic and cost tens of millions of jobs. With gas prices at nearly double their price back from when Donald Trump left office and inflation up from 1.5 percent to 8 percent in just 15 months, we are already experiencing the economic damage from the green energy crusaders.But we…Continue Reading

New Decree From Rome… Cuts The Legs From Under Bishops And Strangles New Religious Groups

June 21, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on New Decree From Rome… Cuts The Legs From Under Bishops And Strangles New Religious Groups

By FR. JOHN T. ZUHLSDORF (Editor’s Note: Fr. Zuhlsdorf posted this commentary on his WDTPRS blog of June 15.) + + Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn’t it once a project of Francis to decentralize some of the power from the Roman Curia out to the local Churches? I have this nagging memory that local bishops were to have more power.On the other hand, in the last few years it seems to be going the other way.Today, another thing struck local bishops, removing even more of their influence in their own dioceses under the guise of “accompaniment” as we all “walk together.”The aim of this new Decree from Rome is to strangle nascent religious groups in the crib.…Continue Reading

The Insatiable Appetite For Pursuing A False God

June 19, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on The Insatiable Appetite For Pursuing A False God

By DONALD DeMARCO Postage stamps are miniature memorials of persons, places, and events. In 1968, the Principality of Liechtenstein issued a set of five stamps under the banner, “Pioneers of Philately.” The second in the series was the man who accumulated the most extensive and valuable collection of stamps ever assembled, one that will never be equaled. His name to posterity was Count Philip la Renotière von Ferrary (1850-1917), but to stamp dealers, he was known simply as Ferrary.Among his more prized items were the unique Treskelling Yellow of Sweden and the 1856 one cent “Black on Magenta” British Guiana. He also owned the only unused copy of the Two Cent Hawaii Missionary of 1851, for which its owner, Gaston…Continue Reading

Biden Falsely Accuses Trump Of His Own Greatest Offense

June 18, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Biden Falsely Accuses Trump Of His Own Greatest Offense

By TERENCE P. JEFFREY As President Joe Biden was coming to the conclusion of his address at the AFL-CIO Convention on Tuesday, June 14, he made an inadvertently ironic observation.“We’re the most unique country in the world,” he said. “We’re organized on one notion. Every other country is organized based on ethnicity, religion, geography. But the United States is based on an idea, only country in the world based on an idea.”“Because we said we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal, endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights: life, liberty,” said Biden.“We’ve never met the goal, but we’ve never — other than the Trump administration — tried to walk away from…Continue Reading

He received his BA in religious studies and his MA in dogmatic theology from Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Conn.) + + In this week’s column, I want to pause from our survey of the Catechism, in order that we might focus on more pressing issues, like the state of affairs in society.Over the last few weeks, we have experienced frightening and difficult moments. These moments have been difficult to comprehend. Confusion, division, and unrest have made these unprecedented times.
