September 27, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on An Attack On Human Life . . . Pope Benedict Condemns “Intrinsic Evil” Of Abortion

By STEVEN ERTELT (LifeNews) — During his time as the leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict was a consistent pro-life voice condemning the evil of abortion. In comments posted on Twitter the morning of September 21, Benedict XVI reminded people that abortion is evil and an attack on human life.He made it clear that children are a blessing and a treasure.“Children truly are the family’s greatest treasure and most precious good. Consequently, everyone must be helped to become aware of the intrinsic evil of the crime of abortion,” the former Pontiff said. “In attacking human life in its very first stages, it is also an aggression against society itself.”His comments come just one week after the latest remarks from…Continue Reading

Biden Is Losing The Race For The Cure

September 26, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Biden Is Losing The Race For The Cure

By STEPHEN MOORE President Joe Biden recently announced, with great fanfare, his Cancer Moonshot initiative. Biden used soaring and promising rhetoric about, at last, finding a cure for one of the world’s leading killers.Speaking at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston on September 12, the president declared:“Beating cancer is something we can do together, and that’s why I’m here today.”For perhaps the first time in his presidency, Biden seemed to cross the aisle and reach out for Republican support by saying: “Cancer doesn’t discriminate red and blue; it doesn’t care if you’re a Republican or a Democrat.”Biden is right that the race for the cure is and should always be bipartisan. After all, who doesn’t want…Continue Reading

Becoming Pro-Life The Hard Way

September 25, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Becoming Pro-Life The Hard Way

By DONALD DeMARCO “Aujourd’hui Maman est morte. Ou, hier, peut-etre; je ne sais pas.” (Today my mother died. Or was it yesterday, I don’t know.) + + This is the celebrated opening of Nobel Laureate Albert Camus’ novel, The Stranger. It immediately establishes the main character as a person who, being emotionally unmoved by the death of his own mother, is indifferent to life.This indifference to life and death was brought to me in a memorable way one rainy night in October after I had given a pro-life talk. It would be a 20-mile trip to get back home and I was eager to get started. Before I could get into my car, however, I heard someone calling me. From…Continue Reading

The Queen: End Of An Era

September 24, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on The Queen: End Of An Era

By JOHN J. METLZER The Queen has died; the page of history has turned. The passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest serving monarch, has shocked and saddened much of the world despite the sovereign’s declining health and her 96 years of age. Just months after having joyfully celebrated her platinum Jubilee commemorating 70 years on the British throne, she has passed.The daughter of King George VI, Britain’s wartime King, Princess Elizabeth assumed the throne in 1952 after the untimely passing of her father. Though coming of age during World War II, she possessed what the British called the indomitable “Blitz Spirit.” The young Queen in a sense bridged two historical and social periods: the War and postwar austerity period…Continue Reading

The “Secure Border” Of Kamala Harris

September 23, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on The “Secure Border” Of Kamala Harris

By TERENCE P. JEFFREY When Donald Trump was president in fiscal 2019, the Border Patrol did not encounter a single individual on the terrorist watchlist trying to illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border between the legal ports of entry.In the first ten months of this fiscal year, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, they encountered 66.These include individuals, as CBP explains on its website, who are “known or suspected terrorists” or “individuals who represent a potential threat to the United States, including known affiliates of watchlisted individuals.”Did CBP fail to encounter any watchlisted individuals in 2019 because the Trump administration was less aggressive about securing that border?Or have 66 been caught this year because the Biden administration has sent a…Continue Reading

Welcome to the Green New Deal, California

September 22, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Welcome to the Green New Deal, California

By DAVID HARSANYI If California, our most populous state, were its own nation, it would rank as the world’s fifth largest economy and boast the highest average household income (outside a handful of “countries” like Monaco or Luxemburg). And, yet, the governor is begging its citizens to stop using their appliances, turn off their lights and keep their thermostats at a stifling 78, lest they suffer more rolling blackouts, like some junior mandarin in a Third World country.Of course, I kid when I say that California is already experiencing the effects of the Green New Deal. A state that still derives more than 66% of its energy from non-renewable sources, has tens of trillions of dollars to go before it…Continue Reading

Why Is the Left Always So Deathly Afraid?

September 19, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Why Is the Left Always So Deathly Afraid?

By STEPHEN MOORE What is it about those on the Left of the political spectrum that they seem to not just live in perpetual fear of apocalypse and doom but they actually embrace it? It is their raison d’etre.Is there something in the collective psyche or the DNA of modern leftists that they crave fear? And doom?This cult of apocalypse started in the late 1960s with the doomsday predictions of “the population bomb,” the title of a mega-bestselling book by Stanford University biology professor Paul Ehrlich. The Population Bomb predicted that mankind was breeding at a pace that would bring about a Malthusian nightmare of overpopulation, starvation, war, poverty, and water shortages. All that was missing was a swarm of…Continue Reading
