An Address For The Ages . . . President Trump’s SOTU Lets Our Voices Be Heard

February 12, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on An Address For The Ages . . . President Trump’s SOTU Lets Our Voices Be Heard

By REY FLORES As I was watching the State of the Union address being so powerfully delivered by U.S. President Donald J. Trump, I thought to myself that he is a kind of Moses for our times. What he said — and how he said it — was exactly what the petulant, prideful, and arrogant socialist Democrats needed to hear. The president delivered his America First message to these rude and obnoxious Democrats with the swiftness of a father’s hand to his child’s rear end when the child misbehaves. Before the start of his speech, news media cameras were broadcasting the interactions of all parties present. There were a lot of smiles as the Capitol was filled with an electricity…Continue Reading

Ghoulish, Grisly, And Gruesome

February 11, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Ghoulish, Grisly, And Gruesome

By MIKE MANNO A few years ago I was part of a parish group that provided hot lunches to the needy in downtown. We did so in conjunction with several other churches, both Catholic and non-Catholic, so that each would serve one day a month. One day some of the ladies began discussing politics and the upcoming visit by then-Sen. Barack Obama. One by one, those engaged in the conversation indicated their support for his presidential campaign. After half listening, I turned to the group, all Democrats, and asked why they supported Obama since he was an ardent supporter of abortion. I was shocked by the reply. “Yeah, but abortion is just one issue.” Just one issue? I met with…Continue Reading

Congresswomen At SOTU . . . May Have Worn White, But They Were Deeply Soiled Within

February 10, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Congresswomen At SOTU . . . May Have Worn White, But They Were Deeply Soiled Within

By DEXTER DUGGAN Amid the flurry of accusations about some modern-day Southern Democrat leaders’ past sympathies for the white-robed Ku Klux Klan, it was fitting that Democrat congresswomen came in for President Trump’s 2019 State of the Union address attired in white. They sat as silent as blanched, inert tombstones when the president denounced national Democrats’ newly exposed hunger for infanticide, eugenic and otherwise. He asked for protective legislation for the babies. Blacks have a disproportionately high abortion rate, so the observer would ponder why the whitened leftist ladies didn’t leap up applauding Trump’s proposal to protect the babies’ civil rights. And how strange that for all their proudly proclaimed diversity, they sat together in a rainbow-less, bleached-sand whiteness that…Continue Reading

Northam, Tran, Racism, Infanticide

February 9, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Northam, Tran, Racism, Infanticide

By CHRISTOPHER MANION At this writing, Ralph Northam still serves as the governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. But his days might well be numbered, not because his own party considers him a “racist,” but because he had the candor to admit, on a popular radio talk show, that he supports infanticide. The issue arose when Kathy Tran, a member of Virginia’s House of Delegates from northern Virginia, proposed legislation that allowed abortion until the moment of birth. On the House floor, Todd Gilbert, the Republican House majority leader, asked her if a woman about to give birth could ask the doctor to abort her child “Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth. She has physical…Continue Reading

Infanticide Becomes The New Abortion In Virginia

February 8, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Infanticide Becomes The New Abortion In Virginia

By SHAUN KENNEY The barbarians have come to Virginia, birthplace of America and home of the agrarian Cavalier tradition. Inside the Virginia General Assembly, a bill that mimicked New York’s now infamous abortion bill came to a House subcommittee, where the patron revealed that the bill would allow for an abortion during labor — not before, but during. To make matters worse? Gov. Ralph Northam, himself a pediatric neurologist, went on-air the following day to not only defend the bill, but to defend the actual practice of an after-birth abortion — quite literally infanticide. LifeSiteNews, in a story by Stephen Kokx, reported as follows on January 31: + + + The staunchly pro-life Catholic bishop of Arlington, Va., has strongly…Continue Reading

Should Old Aquinas Be Forgot?

February 7, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Should Old Aquinas Be Forgot?

By DONALD DeMARCO The legacy of St. Thomas must deal with two prejudices: that he is old; that he is Medieval. These are prejudices and therefore without a valid basis. We continue to celebrate his feast day, which is January 28. His original feast day was March 7, the day he was canonized. However, since this date commonly falls within the period of Lent, it was deemed appropriate to move it to January 28, the date of the translation of his relics to the Church of the Jacobins in Toulouse, France. Why should the legacy of St. Thomas never be forgotten? For one good reason, he never made any concessions to what we now call “political correctness.” He was a…Continue Reading

Chosen To Lead Arizona GOP . . . Persistent Trump Backer Kelli Ward Finally Enters Winner’s Circle

February 6, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Chosen To Lead Arizona GOP . . . Persistent Trump Backer Kelli Ward Finally Enters Winner’s Circle

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — When Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) stepped to the microphones for a talk at Arizona State University in suburban Tempe in May 2015, he wasn’t the only politician in the room with thoughts of running for a higher office. Paul had then just jumped in to a run for the White House for 2016, while the woman who introduced him to a crowd of more than 400 people at the ASU student fitness center, Arizona GOP State Sen. Kelli Ward, was thinking of challenging incumbent Sen. John McCain in the Grand Canyon State’s 2016 Republican primary election. Both Paul and Ward had libertarian-conservative instincts, which both of them referred to in their comments. Ward presented…Continue Reading

Iowa’s Heartbeat Law Overturned

February 5, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on Iowa’s Heartbeat Law Overturned

By MIKE MANNO On January 22, the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, and only days after hundreds of thousands marched in the nation’s capital in support of overturning that decision, a state district court judge released his opinion that Iowa’s Heartbeat legislation was unconstitutional. The Heartbeat law, in effect, prohibited abortions once a fetal heartbeat could be heard. It was passed by a Republican legislature and signed into law last May by Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds. If allowed to stand, the law would have been the strictest abortion law in the nation, and possibly a vehicle to eventually overturn the permissive abortion Roe ruling. (See last week’s Wanderer, p. 7B, “State Judge Strikes Down…Continue Reading

A Leaven In The World . . . Cardinal Dolan: Save Your Soul!

February 4, 2019 Frontpage Comments Off on A Leaven In The World . . . Cardinal Dolan: Save Your Soul!

By FR. KEVIN M. CUSICK In a recent New York Post front-page article, Timothy Cardinal Dolan asks “why” Gov. Cuomo signed a permissive abortion law. Virginia, Rhode Island, and other states are now also discussing doing the same. What would be the reason for asking a question which neither he nor anybody else may ever be able to answer? That’s another conundrum that begs the same question. We can only guess. It appears that the well-heeled abortion lobby is in a panic as a result of rumors that Roe v. Wade’s days may be numbered. One thing that Cardinal Dolan’s ruminations certainly enable, however, is further inaction on his part, whose brief from the Lord is not to act the…Continue Reading
