Pelosi Bashes Trump While Biden Digs In

February 20, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Pelosi Bashes Trump While Biden Digs In

By CHRISTOPHER MANION The news isn’t too good on the Left — so Nancy Pelosi is taking a page from Big Brother. She’s desperate to distract us from Democrat disasters that are piling up like snowdrifts in a Minnesota blizzard.Democrats hogtied Capitol Hill for weeks with impeachment when they should have been working. They wanted the Senate Show Trial to last forever, threatening to calling witnesses and beating the Trump Drum until spring. Then Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) threatened to call Pelosi as the first witness, and they suddenly backed off. Pelosi is ultimately responsible for Capitol security, and Graham wants to know if she turned down police requests for reinforcement long before the events of January 6.No, Nancy…Continue Reading

The Death Of A Distinguished Person

February 19, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on The Death Of A Distinguished Person

By JOE SIXPACK A very holy young priest who loved the souls of his parishioners made an announcement one Sunday morning after Mass. He said, “A distinguished person of the parish has died. The funeral will be held Wednesday at nine o’clock.”Since Father never mentioned the distinguished person’s name, the whole parish was abuzz about who the person might be. They tried and tried to figure it out but couldn’t, so curiosity filled the church on Wednesday morning. In fact, the church was so full that people had to stand in the back.When the casket was opened, the people filed past to see the remains of the distinguished person. Many people gasped in surprise as they looked into the casket.After…Continue Reading

The Coming Abortion Wars

February 18, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on The Coming Abortion Wars

By JUDGE ANDREW P. NAPOLITANO Amid arguments in the Senate over whether the impeachment of former President Donald Trump is constitutional, and in the House over whether $1.9 trillion is enough money to borrow and distribute to select taxpayers and institutions, there have been rumblings among Democrats to make it more difficult for the Supreme Court to invalidate or permit states to gnaw away at Roe v. Wade.Roe v. Wade is the 1973 Supreme Court opinion that essentially establishes — within the privacy of the patient-physician relationship — the right to choose to abort a baby in the womb. The opinion holds that during the first trimester of pregnancy, the states have no interest in regulating abortion beyond the health…Continue Reading

Speaker Tells Zoom Audience . . . About The Life, Sufferings, And Sanctity Of St. Pio

February 17, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Speaker Tells Zoom Audience . . . About The Life, Sufferings, And Sanctity Of St. Pio

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Saints are warriors on a spiritual battlefield, some of them with physical wounds to show.The twentieth-century Italian friar and mystic Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, canonized in 2002 by Pope John Paul II only a third of a century after he died in 1968, was widely known for his stigmata, but the suffering of those unearthly bleeding wounds reflecting Christ’s crucifixion wasn’t the only assault on his flesh. Sometimes demons beat his body.St. Pio’s life was the topic of a February 6 talk by Zoom through the Institute of Catholic Theology (ICT), an evangelization program based here at St. Thomas the Apostle Church, given by Jen Arnold, a Phoenix writer, catechist, and mother of five children.Arnold…Continue Reading

A Beacon Of Light . . . The Stations Of The Cross: Our Journey Begins

February 16, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light . . . The Stations Of The Cross: Our Journey Begins

By FR. RICHARD D. BRETON JR. (Editor’s Note: Fr. Richard D. Breton Jr. is a priest of the Diocese of Norwich, Conn. He received his BA in religious studies and his MA in dogmatic theology from Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Conn.) + + Having begun the Holy Season of Lent, we will begin our reflection series on the Stations of the Cross. As I mentioned in last week’s column, the journey of Christ during the stations is the journey of humanity. Jesus took on our human nature to redeem us. St. Paul put it so well in his Letter to the Romans (5:7-8): You might sacrifice your life for someone who was good or just. Yet, Christ sacrificed His life while we…Continue Reading

Do We Learn From History?

February 15, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Do We Learn From History?

By DEACON MIKE MANNO I fell in love with history as a kid. My mom bought me a set of the World Book Encyclopedia and put it in my bedroom to help me with my homework. One of the reasons she purchased the set was a sales special for our school, St. Theresa of the Child Jesus. Apparently, as I recall, for every so-many sets that were purchased by St. Theresa parents, a set would be given to the school.I didn’t think too much of it at first, but it was convenient. I remember browsing through the books and wondering why I needed so many books in grade school, but, beyond that, it didn’t make much of an impression at…Continue Reading

If Dems Feel Like Kings Atop Their Hill . . . The Only Direction They Have To Fall Is Down

February 14, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on If Dems Feel Like Kings Atop Their Hill . . . The Only Direction They Have To Fall Is Down

By DEXTER DUGGAN The question of who wins the 2024 presidential election already is answered if Republicans now think only along the lines of starting to develop policy positions, sound out focus groups, and connect with think tanks instead of remembering the bigger picture.The winner will be whichever left-wing Democrat gets that party’s nomination, to come out on top the same way Joe Biden did in 2020, aided by U.S. oligarchs.And if 2024 does end up that way, so might every subsequent election as defenseless Republicans disappear into irrelevancy.Conservative radio talk host James T. Harris warned of the looming threat on Phoenix-based major station KFYI (550 AM) on February 5. “America is nearing the last exit on the highway to…Continue Reading

To Defend The Present, We Must Understand The Past

February 13, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on To Defend The Present, We Must Understand The Past

By CHRISTOPHER MANION In tumultuous times, the endless flurry of events can distract us from the fundamentals of life. And some folks want it that way.It’s no secret that malevolent forces rely on disorder, even chaos, as cover for their destructive schemes. When those forces find allies among the broader population, even enjoying the support of willing cooperators from the cultural elites, a nation’s bedrock principles can no longer be taken for granted. They must be defended at all costs — which means that they must first be understood.It often seems that America’s enemies understand those principles better than her defenders do. “Know the enemy,” said Sun Tzu. Leftists at home and abroad recognize well how America’s faith and our…Continue Reading

What Are You Looking For?

February 12, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on What Are You Looking For?

By JOE SIXPACK A young man had spent his youth enjoying the pleasures of the world — both legitimate and sinful pleasures. Then one day he was in a serious car accident that put him in the hospital, badly injured with the prognosis that he might never walk or be normal again…if he lived at all.Lying in the hospital bed, he had a lot of time to think. He began to realize how foolishly he’d been wasting his life looking in all the wrong places to find happiness through pleasures of the body. He promised God that if He healed him, he would spend the rest of his life living for Him.God answered the young man’s prayer and did indeed…Continue Reading

February 11, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Journal Editorial Ill-Informed… After Arizona GOP Issues Censures, Chairman’s Victory Challenged

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — The Arizona Republican Party’s censure of some big GOP names around here at its annual meeting in January was followed by a contretemps for the party itself.After assembled state GOP committeemen voted to censure Cindy McCain, the widow of the late U.S. Sen. John McCain, as well as former U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, the results of their vote for state party chairman came under challenge, even though incumbent chair Kelli Ward and opponent Sergio Arellano both are Donald Trump supporters.Ward subsequently didn’t cooperate in a request for an audit of her victory.The results for chairman “had little to nothing to do with Trump, and any attempt to silo the players…Continue Reading
