Neither Left Nor Right, But Catholic . . . Bold Steps Needed To Address Illegal Immigration

January 26, 2023 Featured Today Comments Off on Neither Left Nor Right, But Catholic . . . Bold Steps Needed To Address Illegal Immigration

By STEPHEN M. KRASON One of the ways in which the rule of law has been utterly flouted by the Biden administration has been its unwillingness to seriously enforce U.S. immigration law. In fact, the current crisis at the southern border is largely due to Biden’s signaling, as soon as he took office, that people were essentially free to come across.

The result, of course, is that there are now millions of people in the U.S. who have no right to be here. They have violated federal…Continue Reading

January 24, 2023 Featured Today Comments Off on Pregnancy Is Not A Disease… No One Could Observe This In Contemporary America

By R.T. NEARY “Follow the science” has been the mandate since 2019 in this once-united nation that is still officially entitled The United States of America. “Experts” have been featured on TV screens voicing this as Gospel.Public dialogue has centered on the reality of a threat posed by a living organism present in our environment. It is a deadly virus that can be carried by human beings — and it is transmissible. The organism in shape has little resemblance to us, but its threat is that it has been considered a dangerous killer of a human when carried by one of our species. Every individual in our global human society has been deemed vulnerable. This fact has caused the situation…Continue Reading

January 21, 2023 Featured Today Comments Off on Biden’s ESG Investment Rules Threaten Your Retirement Savings

By STEPHEN MOORE President Joe Biden’s Labor Department recently announced a new rule that will permit money managers to play politics with trillions of dollars of people’s retirement savings.The administration is pushing environmental, social and governance investing, which allows retirement fund managers to select stocks of companies based on their positions on social and environmental issues.Put simply, retirement savings will be used as leverage to force companies to reduce their carbon emissions and establish racial and gender quotas and other social justice fads completely unrelated to securing a high return on workers’ lifetime savings.For example, to reduce greenhouse gases, money managers have divested in traditional oil and gas companies such as Exxon or Chevron.
