By STEVEN ERTELT (LifeNews) — Gov. Ron DeSantis says his administration will appeal a Florida judge’s ruling striking down a pro-life law to save babies from abortions.Less than one week after the Supreme Court upheld a 15-week abortion ban in the state of Mississippi, a Florida judge has issued a temporary restraining order blocking enforcement of a 15-week abortion ban Gov.

Bishops Say . . . California Abortion Amendment Deserves Vigorous Opposition

July 14, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Bishops Say . . . California Abortion Amendment Deserves Vigorous Opposition

By KEVIN J. JONES DENVER (CNA) — California voters will have the opportunity to approve or reject a strongly pro-abortion amendment to the state constitution in November. The state’s Catholic bishops said the proposal gives a “boundless scope” to ending the lives of the unborn when human lives should instead be protected “at every age in every stage.”The proposed amendment “looks to enshrine the most extreme forms of abortion into the California Constitution,” the California Catholic Conference warned in a statement signed by the 12 archbishops and bishops leading the state’s ten dioceses and two archdioceses.“This constitutional amendment, as written, will legalize and protect abortion up to the point just prior to delivery,” the conference said. “It is distressing that…Continue Reading

An Unsecured Border Is A Mortal And Moral Hazard

July 13, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on An Unsecured Border Is A Mortal And Moral Hazard

By TERENCE P. JEFFREY It happened outside Brackettville, Texas, which sits about halfway between Uvalde and the border crossing at Del Rio.This was a shooting you probably did not hear about — in part, thankfully, because no one was hurt.A U.S. Border Patrol agent was on a road that runs out of Brackettville when he saw a Chevrolet Suburban heading north. It was just before 10:00 a.m. on Jan. 3, 2021.“The USBP agent activated his overhead lights to initiate a vehicle stop on the SUV in order to conduct an immigration inspection,” said a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.“A high-speed pursuit ensued as the SUV attempted to abscond from USBP agents,”…Continue Reading

A Lifeless Pontifical Academy

By ANTHONY ESOLEN (Wanderer Editor’s Note: This essay is reprinted with permission from The Catholic Thing [www.thecatholicthing.org], published there on July 2, 2022.) + + We American Catholics who have been fighting for the life of the unborn child had much to celebrate when the Supreme Court at last retreated from its longstanding usurpation of legislative power, and declared that the dismembering of a child in the womb is no longer a right guaranteed by the Constitution. One might think that church bells would be ringing everywhere. We got this from the Vatican organization most concerned with the matter. It deserves to be given in full: + + The Pontifical Academy for Life joins U.S. Bishops’ statement on the decision…Continue Reading

Latest Symptoms Of A Disintegrating Nation

July 11, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Latest Symptoms Of A Disintegrating Nation

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN In Stephen Vincent Benet’s The Devil and Daniel Webster, the tale is told that if you approached Webster’s grave and called out his name, a voice would boom in reply, “Neighbor, how stands the Union?”“Then you better answer the Union stands as she stood, rock-bottomed and copper-sheathed, one and indivisible, or he’s liable to rear right out of the ground.”Today, it would be untruthful to answer to the soul of Webster that our Union is “rock-bottomed and copper-sheathed, one and indivisible.”For the divisions among us replicate those Webster witnessed in his last years before the War Between the States.A Gallup survey reports the lowest figure ever recorded, 38 percent, for that share of our population that…Continue Reading

A Child Of The Universe

July 10, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on A Child Of The Universe

By DONALD DeMARCO I wrote the following poem for our thirteenth grandchild who turns one year old on July 26, 2022. Poetry says more than prose, though its message is far more subtle. The reader must be sensitive to what it intimates. The unconscious has something to reveal that prose does not quite capture.Reading poetry is, indeed, a spiritual activity. I invite the reader to recite the poem aloud and then consider my follow-up commentary. Three hundred and sixty-five rotationsAnd one revolution,And planet earth returns to the very locationIt occupied exactly one year ago;A cosmic redundancy bereft of apparent meaning,Yet, making it possible for an earthly inhabitantTo create a solar system of her ownWith mom and dad, relatives and friendsCircling…Continue Reading

Biden’s Green New Deal Is Increasing Greenhouse Gases

July 9, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Biden’s Green New Deal Is Increasing Greenhouse Gases

By STEPHEN MOORE Here’s an amazing but true statistic. After more than a decade of declining carbon emissions here in the United States, in 2021, President Joe Biden’s first year in office, emissions rose.In other words, not only have Biden’s energy policies been a disaster for our economy and national security as we have become more dependent on Russia and Iran, but they haven’t worked as a global warming solution.To understand the utter futility of Biden’s “renewable energy” crusade, we must go back about 15 years in time to when the amazing shale revolution, thanks to energy pioneers such as Harold Hamm of Oklahoma, the man who drilled the Bakken Shale in North Dakota, began. These new drilling techniques have…Continue Reading

Did George Washington Violate The First Amendment?

July 8, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on Did George Washington Violate The First Amendment?

By TERENCE P. JEFFREY Did George Washington in his first act as president violate the first principle soon to be enshrined in the First Amendment?Did the Congress that approved the First Amendment compel him to do so?On April 7, 1789, three weeks before Washington was inaugurated, the Journal of the Senate reported that the Senate had ordered “a committee…to take under consideration the manner of electing Chaplains, and to confer thereupon with a committee of the House of Representatives.”On April 15, 1789, the committee reported back: “That two Chaplains, of different denominations, be appointed to Congress, for the present session, the Senate to appoint one, and give notice thereof to the House of Representatives, who shall, thereupon, appoint the other;…Continue Reading

After A Lifetime Of Lies . . . Aging Permissive Abortion Starts To Die Its Deserved Death

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — What a difference nearly a half-century makes.The story in Arizona isn’t unusual. Pro-lifers around the United States could tell their own personal versions of it. But I was on the ground here, so this is what I saw.All was quiet at the Arizona Capitol complex the night after the U.S. Supreme Court announced its earthshaking permissive-abortion opinions on January 22, 1973, Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.Members of the emerging pro-life movement were shocked that a seven-justice majority waved a magic wand and transformed a serious criminal offense against human life into a fundamental constitutional right overnight, without giving any significant justification for their action. It was just “raw judicial power,” as dissenting Justice…Continue Reading

July 5, 2022 Featured Today Comments Off on On June 24 . . . Over 200 Minnesotans Celebrate Roe’s Demise

By PEGGY MOEN ST. PAUL — Maybe a shade anticlimactic after the infamous leak in May, and almost apocalyptic with the surrounding pro-abort radicals, Pro-Life Action Ministries’ post-Roe rally in St. Paul blazed a clear path for the pro-life future.Brian Gibson, executive director of PLAM, addressed the crowd from the stage and reminded them that they were all standing on the plaza of the Warren E. Burger Federal Building. Burger was chief justice of the Supreme Court when Roe was handed down.“We’re standing here today because that decision of 1973 is gone.”The pro-life crowd shouted “Praise God! Praise God!”Gibson called on pro-lifers to always give the glory to God.When we ask for something big from God, he added, “You know…Continue Reading
