Overwhelm And Conquer

September 7, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Overwhelm And Conquer

By DEACON MIKE MANNO, JD The maxim “divide and conquer” was used throughout antiquity and up to our present day by generals, kings, war lords, and politicians to achieve their goals, both near term as well as long term.You can see it best, I think, in political rhetoric. And while both sides use the concept to some extent, the best examples come from the Progressive Left. We are all being divided into our little niche sub-groups, either to placate or to demonize.Unfortunately, over time we have lost the sense of an overarching unity that transcends all of that, with each side playing to its own base of niche groups, railing against the other side’s groups in order to gain power.That…Continue Reading

Pelosi’s Hair-Raising Embarrassment . . . Is Nothing As Compared To Biden’s Brain-Busting Ruses On Abortion

September 6, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Pelosi’s Hair-Raising Embarrassment . . . Is Nothing As Compared To Biden’s Brain-Busting Ruses On Abortion

By DEXTER DUGGAN When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke California’s onerous liberal rules to get her hair fixed at a salon in her hometown, that’s because, you know, she’s special. It was someone else’s stupid fault that Nancy got misled or that people complained about her, uh, what amounted to white privilege.Wait a minute, how can something be both liberal and onerous? Aren’t liberals free-spirited and unconstrained? Not when liberal Democrats can say, “’Tis freedom for me, but leg chains for thee, underling.”Like any good elitist Dem, nothing’s Pelosi’s fault. Crafty Donald Trump must have made her hair grow too much, so she had to visit the salon. Yes, blame Trump. Look how much hair he has, and blow-dried!Trump must…Continue Reading

Simple Question for the Bishops and all Leadership in The Catholic Church . . . DO YOU SUPPORT THESE MEN OF THE TRUTH?

September 5, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Simple Question for the Bishops and all Leadership in The Catholic Church . . . DO YOU SUPPORT THESE MEN OF THE TRUTH?

JOSEPH MATT – Publisher, The Wanderer Bishop Strickland – Fr. Altman There is no grey area here. There is no in between. As Catholics if we do not stand with these men, we are participating in and propagating the evil that is engulfing our society and our Church today. It is time the Hierarchy fall into line behind these two men of courage and faith. Given the gravity of this battle between good and evil, silence is not an option. SPEAK UP BISHOPS!  To take issue with the words of Fr. Altman is to take issue with the TRUTH.  Bishop Strickland is demonstrating true Catholic leadership and should be applauded for his courageous support of his fellow cleric, Fr. Altman,…Continue Reading

“Pro-Life” Never Trumpers Endorse Abortion On Demand

September 5, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on “Pro-Life” Never Trumpers Endorse Abortion On Demand

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Mona Charen, who worked in the White House for Nancy Reagan, now has a syndicated column carried by a paper here in the Shenandoah Valley.Which is typical. The paper’s editor, recognizing our area’s conservative character, “balances” the copious left-wing op-eds with “conservatives” who just happen to detest Donald Trump.So this week, Charen’s title was, well, puzzling: “Why this pro-life conservative is voting for Biden.”“I have been pro-life my entire adult life,” Charen writes. “I haven’t changed.”Then why vote for the most pro-abortion presidential ticket in history“It’s wrong to take innocent life,” she sighs. “But other things are immoral, too. It’s also wrong to swindle people, to degrade and demonize, to incite violence, to bully, and while we’re…Continue Reading

The Unity And Trinity Of God

September 4, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on The Unity And Trinity Of God

BY JOE SIXPACK In AD 177, St. Cecilia was accused of being a Christian during one of the great Roman persecutions, and she was taken before the prefect. The pagan prefect’s threats against Cecilia failed to weaken her love for Christ. Answering his threats, Cecilia said, “Do you know that I’m a bride of my Lord Jesus Christ?Cecilia’s answer infuriated the prefect, so he sentenced her to death by suffocation. She was placed day and night in a hot air bath, heated seven times its usual temperature. Reminiscent of the three Israelites that King Nebuchadnezzar had tossed into the fiery furnace (Daniel 3), the heat never bothered the saint’s body at all.Since Cecilia couldn’t be killed in the heated bath,…Continue Reading

Potential Gun Dangers, Political Predicaments, Arpaio Election Loss Among Arizona News

September 3, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Potential Gun Dangers, Political Predicaments, Arpaio Election Loss Among Arizona News

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Two pieces of politics from the not-too-distant past reappeared here while the virtual Republican National Convention began in late August far to the east.One of the pieces was a five-year-old news report on a liberal activist who learned a lesson about potential firearms dangers existing for police. The other piece was about some opportunists and other Republicans who don’t mind getting on board with left-wing Democrats.On August 24 blogger Fr. John Zuhlsdorf (wdtprs.com) posted a five-year old video from Fox 10 Phoenix, KSAZ-TV, showing a local civil-rights activist, Rev. Jarrett Maupin, accepting an invitation to participate in a use-of-force training by the local Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.The previous month in 2015, the television station recalled,…Continue Reading

During this spiraling chaos, society has undergone a kind of transformation. This transformation has led people to forget the fundamental values of who we are as Catholics. In some instances, we can find ourselves caught up as participants…Continue Reading

Transsexuals Gain Two Temporary Court Victories

August 31, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on Transsexuals Gain Two Temporary Court Victories

By DEACON MIKE MANNO, JD In the legal wars to make transgenderism mainstream, conservatives received a couple of legal setbacks recently when two federal judges blocked conservative-backed initiatives from taking effect. In Idaho, Judge David Nye temporarily blocked a state law that prohibits transgender girls — boys who are switching — to compete in girls’ and women’s sports.And in New York, Judge Frederick Block similarly blocked the Trump administration’s new HHS rules which protected doctors and hospitals from being forced to provide transgender surgery, and confine the definition of “sex” to exclude gender identity. In his ruling the judge cited the recently decided Supreme Court case which included gender identity within the definition of sex in employment discrimination cases.In the…Continue Reading

While Dems’ Zones Ablaze In August . . . Trump’s Republican Showcase Brings Pro-Lifers In From The Cold

August 30, 2020 Frontpage Comments Off on While Dems’ Zones Ablaze In August . . . Trump’s Republican Showcase Brings Pro-Lifers In From The Cold

By DEXTER DUGGAN Although many of the Hollywood fantasyland’s stars give their best to boost the national Democratic Party’s unhinged agenda, and not only during its election-year convention, Donald Trump’s Republican National Convention awarded starring roles to ordinary Americans and their goals.Notably for pro-lifers, saving preborn babies from butchery was treated by Trump’s virtual convention planners as the praiseworthy effort it is, not something best hushed up down in the basement. For how many years had Republican leadership sought pro-lifers’ votes while treating their courage as almost too embarrassing to be around? No longer.Anyway, the basement’s already full with Dem Joe Biden, his eldercare necessities, his written reminders to himself about who and where he is, his decades-old memories, and…Continue Reading
