Along The Southern Border . . … When Laws Are Trampled Down Is When Walls Have To Rise

February 27, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Along The Southern Border . . … When Laws Are Trampled Down Is When Walls Have To Rise

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — A San Diego woman told The Wanderer how she had seen life change since she moved to the southern California ocean-side hub just north of Mexico decades ago. When obeying lawful border regulations had been regarded as more important, there was less need to emphasize physical border security, said “Sally,” a woman who asked that her real name not be used. However, with drug cartels turning more active and unauthorized crossings northward as a problem, an evening jaunt to Tijuana by Americans wasn’t thought of so lightly. San Diego used to be regarded as a quiet Navy town, and its residents would cross southward for dinner and drinks and some sporting events, Sally said. “It was more…Continue Reading

Living In The Age Of Fake Accusations

February 26, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Living In The Age Of Fake Accusations

By REY FLORES These days, anyone can hurl an accusation against anyone else, and if the political narrative favors the radical secular left, the fake news media and Hollywood celebrities will run with the story, before any solid facts are established, and make a huge deal out of it. The biggest one being this complete money pit called the Robert Mueller “Russian collusion” investigation, alleging that President Trump was “colluding” with the Russian government to steal the 2016 presidential election from Hillary Clinton. Word coming out of Washington, D.C., is that after two years, there is little, if anything to report. Mueller will walk away looking like a complete fool, egg on his face and all, with his tail between…Continue Reading

The Legal Butchery Of Innocent Children

February 25, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on The Legal Butchery Of Innocent Children

By MIKE MANNO Gauging reader response, the left’s doubling down on the abortion war against children and the bishops’ milquetoast response have lit a fire under the pews. And I hope to pour a little gasoline on it today by doing something we were never permitted to do from the pulpit — for good reason: too many children there. So don’t give your paper to the kids — Promise! Because I’m going to describe what we’ve been talking about that is the subject of all the new pro-abortion legislation. Let’s get some terms straight. Dilation and evacuation is a dismemberment abortion and is usually used between 15 and 18 weeks. It seems to be the abortionists’ preferred method of thinning…Continue Reading

Fearing Public Reaction . . . Arizona Democrat Legislators Abandon Their Radical Abortion Bill

February 24, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Fearing Public Reaction . . . Arizona Democrat Legislators Abandon Their Radical Abortion Bill

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — As Arizona Democrat legislators dashed away from their support for a radical pro-abortion bill, a local Tea Party leader told The Wanderer that a pro-life victory here can serve as an example to other states facing a legislative push for the Democrats’ Culture of Death. The bill, sponsored by the Democrats’ leadership in the Arizona House of Representatives, crashed to failure at a February 20 hearing of the House Judiciary Committee, with even Democrat committee members voting against it. The vote was 0 to 8, with two votes of “present.” Even the prime Democrat sponsor of HB 2696, Raquel Teran, pled with the committee to set it aside. But the committee’s Republican majority chairman, Rep.…Continue Reading

McCarrick’s Ghost Haunts The Hierarchy

February 23, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on McCarrick’s Ghost Haunts The Hierarchy

By CHRISTOPHER MANION “We cannot have a Dallas 2, Dallas 3, and Dallas 4,” then-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick told his brother bishops in November 2002. “We need to accept these norms and move on with these new canonical procedures that we have to make sure that what we do is always just and honest, we have no choice.” The scene was the second day of the USCCB’s annual meeting in Baltimore. The action item was the vote on “The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People,” a document that McCarrick had engineered. The “Dallas 2002” referred to the USCCB’s meeting in June of that year, where the bishops had responded to the exploding abuse and cover-up crisis by voting…Continue Reading

Solzhenitsyn Vs. The Culture of Death

February 22, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Solzhenitsyn Vs. The Culture of Death

By SHAUN KENNEY Alexander Solzhenitsyn would have been celebrating his 100th birthday last December, and the author of Gulag Archipelago and The First Circle would be equal parts mortified and turned prophet about the current state of affairs in his native Russia and about the decline of the United States. Ironically enough, one of Solzhenitsyn’s first complaints about the Western world upon his arrival as a refugee from the Soviet Union was the pervasiveness of the Western media. Very soon, his disdain for the omnipresent media circling his home, his family, his friends and compatriots would erupt into the now famous condemnation of journalism writ large: “You are worse than the KGB!” One is almost forced to reflect on this…Continue Reading

Buckets Of Babies

February 21, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Buckets Of Babies

By BARBARA SIMPSON (Editor’s Note: This article first appeared at WorldNetDaily on February 10.) + + + The legalizing of late-term abortions in New York State garnered headlines across the country — stirring up the emotions of both the “pro-choice” and anti-abortion crowds. It was interesting to watch the arguments of the “pro-choicers” who tried as best they could to steer clear of the dilemma of what to do when a child survives an abortion. It’s called a “botched abortion” — in other words, the abortion didn’t kill the fetus (or baby, or whatever they choose to call it). That’s a part of abortion that has been mostly ignored because we have been largely brainwashed to believe that what is…Continue Reading

Do Catholic Schools Need To Teach That Theology Is Knowledge?

February 20, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Do Catholic Schools Need To Teach That Theology Is Knowledge?

By ARTHUR HIPPLER (Editor’s Note: Dr. Hippler is chairman of the religion department and teaches religion in the Upper School at Providence Academy, Plymouth, Minn.) + + + The chemistry teacher stood by the copier and saw that the religion teacher was copying an article from the Summa. “Is theology a science?” (Ia Q.1, art. 2). The chemistry teacher made a face of amused contempt. “Theology is not a science,” she pointed out. The religion teacher responded, “Theology is not an experimental science, but it is still a body of knowledge, and that is what St. Thomas is arguing.” The chemistry teacher remained unimpressed. This little exchange would be more common only if more religion teachers were using St. Thomas!…Continue Reading

In Arizona… Questions Still Raised Over Tactics Used By Supervisor Of Voting

February 19, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on In Arizona… Questions Still Raised Over Tactics Used By Supervisor Of Voting

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Some national news topics were in the air when the Arizona Project Tea Party gathered here for its regular Monday evening meeting. At the lectern, the group’s chairman, Ron Ludders, noted that embattled Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam said he wanted to be a healer. But, Ludders asked on February 11, “How can you be a healer and kill a newborn?” He referred to Northam’s shocking casualness in a recent radio interview when mentioning setting aside an aborted infant while deciding what to do about this new life. Later during the Tea Party meeting, during questions from the audience, Veronika Corcoran, a woman who said she was born in Slovenia, and had the appropriate accent,…Continue Reading

The Epidemic Of Assisted Suicide Spreads

February 18, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on The Epidemic Of Assisted Suicide Spreads

By MIKE MANNO While the “life” arguments these days seem to center around abortion, both pre-birth and post-birth varieties, there are other anti-life currents stirring the progressive winds of change, one of them being physician-assisted suicide, or, as I prefer, doctor-prescribed death, which, incidentally, includes euthanasia. During the run of my old radio program, Faith on Trial, we covered the issue extensively and had numerous guests, including medical practitioners, disability and elder advocates, pro-life attorneys, as well as leaders of anti-suicide organizations. It was, to me at least, appalling how quickly the clamor, the demand, and the justification for such an idea spread. It was disheartening to see voters approving pro-suicide legislation. We’ve come a long way since Dr. Kevorkian…Continue Reading
