When Rights Are Wrong

September 26, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on When Rights Are Wrong

By DONALD DeMARCO There are few topics that are of greater importance than “rights.” At the same time, the topic of rights has been egregiously misunderstood and fraudulently represented. What are rights? Are they the exclusive domain of human beings? What is the basis of a right? How can rights be protected? Can there be rights without duties? These are certainly important questions, though their answers are often confusing and contradictory.That the subject of rights is important is widely upheld. Unfortunately there is an unbridgeable chasm between their recognized importance and how they should be applied. Some years ago, the well-known anthropologist, Margaret Mead, wrote a piece for Redbook entitled, “The Many Rights to Life.” The redoubtable Ms. Mead generously…Continue Reading

September 25, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on Are The U.S. And China Stumbling Toward An “Islands War”?

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN In a diplomatic coup, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a deal last week with the UK and U.S. to have those Anglo-American allies help build a nuclear-powered submarine fleet for Australia.A $66 billion French deal to provide Canberra with diesel electric-powered submarines, among the largest defense contracts Paris had ever negotiated, was blown off.“A stab in the back!” said Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who had been kept in the dark on the secret talks. “There has been duplicity, contempt and lies.” Le Drian compared President Joe Biden to former President Donald Trump.President Emmanuel Macron recalled his ambassadors to both the U.S. and Australia. In two centuries of U.S.-French diplomatic relations, no such recall had ever…Continue Reading

9/11: A Blazing Hell On Earth

September 24, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on 9/11: A Blazing Hell On Earth

By BARBARA SIMPSOM (Editor’s Note: This article first appeared on WorldNetDaily on September 10.) + + It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since that awful day — 9/11 — this country was massively attacked by an enemy most Americans didn’t even realize we had.The responsibility for that ignorance should be placed squarely on the backs of our elected government representatives. They’re the ones who are closest to what is going on politically in our world, and yet they did not fully warn Americans what was at stake.Oh yes, there were some who expressed concern about the dangers from the Middle East. But there was — and still is — the concern that too much warning would get people…Continue Reading

September 23, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on New FDA Records Show . . . Purchases Of Fetal Organs, Heads And Tissue for ‘Humanized Mice’ Project

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Judicial Watch announced September 14, that it received 198 pages of records and communications from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) involving “humanized mice” research with human fetal heads, organs and tissue, including communications and contracts with human fetal tissue provider Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR). Most of the records are communications and related attachments between Perrin Larton, a procurement manager for ABR, and research veterinary medical officer Dr. Kristina Howard of the FDA.Judicial Watch received the records through a March 2019 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, of which the FDA is a part (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department Health and Human Services (No. 1:19-cv-00876)). The lawsuit…Continue Reading

The Enduring Path To Financial Health: Graduate, Work, Marry And Have Children

September 22, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on The Enduring Path To Financial Health: Graduate, Work, Marry And Have Children

By TERENCE P. JEFFREY The basic path to financial success in this country has been revealed once again by the Census Bureau’s annual report on income and poverty, which was released this week. What did it show?People who graduate from college, get a job, get married and have children generally earn more money than those who do not. People who drop out of high school, do not work and have children out of wedlock generally earn less and are more likely to be in poverty.One may have suspected this was the case simply by looking at the society around us. But the Census Bureau’s hard numbers and the lessons they teach are worth reviewing.The COVID-19 pandemic made 2020 a tough…Continue Reading

Our Vindictive Culture

September 21, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on Our Vindictive Culture

By REY FLORES We have all known political correctness as a way of life for years now. It seems that everyone gets offended by one thing or another, but as we spiral out of control into the unknown future, it’s no longer about pointing out political incorrectness — today it’s about punishing the accused in every way possible.Let’s start with today’s COVID crisis. Simply by choosing not to wear a silly face mask or refusing to get inoculated with some questionable vaccines, some people are being ostracized and singled out as being a terrible person who doesn’t care about anyone but themselves.That’s crazy thinking. I know it doesn’t seem like it, but we still have medical freedoms to make our…Continue Reading

If Dems Trample U.S. Into The Dust … They’ll Have Cleared The Ground To Build New Dictatorship

September 20, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on If Dems Trample U.S. Into The Dust … They’ll Have Cleared The Ground To Build New Dictatorship

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX – Like many other people who don’t determine the priorities for coverage by dominant left-wing media, conservative pundit Bill Bennett was puzzled at irrational behavior in Joe Biden’s proclaimed steely fight against the COVID virus.Commenting that 40,000 people a week come up to the southern border, Bennett said, “If this is a national emergency, why don’t you take it seriously?” Bennett wasn’t referring to the open-border crisis itself at that moment, but the fact that illegal aliens weren’t being vaccinated or screened out from being spread around the U.S. despite carrying the disease.What a contrast with Biden’s merciless war on U.S. citizens, supposedly to stop this virus.Bennett added, “Why is that not being paid attention to?”…Continue Reading

A Philadelphia Lawyer In The Garden Of Eden

September 19, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on A Philadelphia Lawyer In The Garden Of Eden

By DONALD DeMARCO There was no moment in the annals of biblical history, if we are to give full rein to our imagination, when the presence of a lawyer was more urgently needed than immediately after Adam and Eve ingested the forbidden fruit. His absence was most keenly felt, for he was not there to prevent the greatest flood of calamities the world has ever known from sweeping over one generation after another of the human beings who were weakened by the transmission of original sin.Let us exercise our capacity for fantasy and consider what it may have been like if a clever Philadelphia lawyer had been present in Paradise to speak on behalf of our primal parents, who, we…Continue Reading

Who and What Is Tearing the US Apart?

September 18, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on Who and What Is Tearing the US Apart?

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN In Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, September 11, former President George W. Bush’s theme was national unity — and how it has been lost over these past 20 years.“In the weeks and months following the 9/11 attacks,” said Bush, “I was proud to lead an amazing, resilient, united people. When it comes to the unity of America, those days seem distant from our own. A malign force seems at work in our common life that turns every disagreement into an argument, and every argument into a clash of cultures.”Though he surely did not realize it, Bush had himself, moments before, given us an example of how that unity was destroyed when he drew a parallel between the…Continue Reading

Mother Teresa And Current Events

September 17, 2021 Featured Today Comments Off on Mother Teresa And Current Events

By FR. JOSEPH JOHNSON (Editor’s Note: Fr. Joseph Johnson is a priest of the St. Paul-Minneapolis Archdiocese and this commentary first appeared in his church bulletin. It is reprinted here with permission.) + + National headlines are revolving around a newly enacted law in my home state of Texas. It makes abortionists and their accomplices liable for the death of any unborn child whose heartbeat can be detected. These current events unfolded at the same time that we were preparing to observe the Feast of St. Teresa of Calcutta. Her perspective is very helpful as we try to analyze everything going on around us.Legalized abortion is an epic fight in its duration, its capacity to enflame passions, and its stark…Continue Reading
