    How would they destroy our economic system and self governing system and replace them with something else? It takes patience. First they must convince the populace that America is the main source of many of the world's problems. Furthermore, that Free Enterprise created the current real economic threat, the imagined ecological stress and that government can do better by playing the Blame Game using the following: - Propaganda - Generational dependency - Regulations on business - Attack Industry - Divide and Conquer Americans - Mob rule - Destroy the Military from within - Attack, corrupt and infiltrate Religion and Morality...

    May 31, 2012 ( - There is nothing more predictable than networks burying negative news about Planned Parenthood. Pro-life organization Live Action recently came out with a disturbing video showing a Planned Parenthood staffer in Texas assisting a Live Action actor to obtain a sex-selection abortion. That practice is where a fetus is aborted if the child is discovered to be of a certain gender (usually female). The broadcast outlets have completely ignored the controversy: ABC, CBS, and NBC have not devoted a single second of their May 29 evening broadcasts and May 30 morning broadcasts to coverage of the...

    I turned on my television Thursday morning and heard a beating heart. It was the beautiful, vulnerable sound of an unborn baby's still-developing heart, from an ultrasound. "We don't know her eye color," the voiceover said. "Whether she'll be a redhead or brunette. We haven't seen her toes, fingers or nose. But through the science of genomics we can look forward and begin to care for her future." The ad was for a medical group in northern Virginia. "Join the future of health," the commercial urged. It was quite the paradox that later that same day, the House of...
  • Is ObamaCare Slowing the Economy?

    Everyone knows that ObamaCare will discourage employment. Everyone who stops and thinks that is. Yesterday's job report was genuinely awful. Here is a congressional hearing on why ObamaCare is making things worse. By mandating that employers buy expensive health insurance for their employees, the new health reform law will raise the cost of labor and make it more expensive than otherwise to hire new workers. Plus, the law forces employees to have this expensive fringe benefit, even if they would prefer a less costly health plan in exchange for higher wages. To make matters worse, the health plan that employers...

    Last week, two prominent Catholic women -- Kathleen Sebelius in an address to the graduates of Georgetown University's public policy school, and Maureen Dowd in a column published in the New York Times -- delivered strong statements about the Church's role in civil society. Dowd's column was more or less a screed, while Sebelius's address was relatively measured in tone. Yet both were marked by some pretty fundamental misunderstandings, which have, sadly, become widespread. Echoing an army of commentators from the last fifty years, Dowd exults in James Joyce's characterization of the Catholic Church (drawn, it appears, from the pages...

    House Democrats voted overwhelmingly against the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (H.R. 3541), killing this legislation's chances for passing in the current session of Congress. The bill would've barred doctors from performing abortions for the sole purpose of preventing the birth of a child of an unwanted gender. Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) characterized the bill as “yet another attempt to impose the shackles of the anti-choice lobby on the personal liberties of women. The Court gave women the right to terminate pregnancies in 1973. The Court didn't say women could only do it for good reasons. They don't have to give any...

    The House on Thursday rejected a Republican bill that would impose fines and prison terms on doctors who perform abortions for the sole purpose of controlling the gender of the child, a practice known as sex-selective abortion. The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), H.R. 3541, was defeated in a 246-168 vote. While that's a clear majority of the House, Republicans called up the bill under a suspension of House rules, which limits debate and requires a two-thirds majority vote to pass. In this case, it would have required more support from Democrats. Twenty Democrats voted for the bill, while seven Republicans...

China's vicious campaign against girls has arrived on American shores. Rep. Ron Paul an OB/GYN, voted with the Democrats, perhaps out of a federalism concern. The argument by Rep.

    Legislation to ban sex-selective abortions failed to pass today despite it being supported by the majority of the House. The final vote was 246-168. The reason it failed was that this particular proposal required a two-thirds majority to pass; therefore the bill fell 30 votes short.

There are many of us out here who are as disgusted by the wickedness that permeates every fiber of the Democrat Party.

    William Peter Blatty’s 1971 novel The Exorcist—which went on to become an Oscar-winning movie—depicts an epic battle of good versus evil waged under the auspices of the Catholic Church. Reportedly based on a real exorcism Blatty heard about as an undergraduate on a scholarship at Georgetown University, the novel is steeped in Catholicism. Indeed, the “hero” of The Exorcist is the fictional Father Damien Karras, a Georgetown Jesuit, who, at great personal cost, drives out the demon. Now Blatty, a longtime financial contributor to his alma mater, says that Georgetown is no longer true to the Catholic identity he knew...

The Constitution gives to Congress the power to enforce the 14th Amendment's guarantees of equal protection by appropriate legislation. And this week, in a historic vote, the House is going to consider using that power to ban abortions based on gender. The bill is called the "Prenatal Anti-Discrimination Act," or PRENDA, because it...

Representative Jennifer Weiss (D-Wake) called it a continuation of the the Republicans’ “war on women.” That brought an angry rebuff from Rep. John Blust (R-Guilford):

    Media outlets such as Time Magazine and Reuters have provided extensive coverage to an article recently published as “Original Research” and entitled, “The Comparative Safety of Legal Induced Abortion and Childbirth in the United States,” by Raymond and Grimes in the Feb, 2012 journal Obstetrics & Gynecology. The article concludes by stating: “Legal induced abortion is markedly safer than childbirth. The risk of death associated with childbirth is approximately 14 times higher than that with abortion. Similarly, the overall morbidity associated with childbirth exceeds that with abortion.” Is this the truth? NIFLA doesn’t believe so and recommends that Pregnancy Resource...

    Perhaps most Americans have read about the discriminatory sex-selection abortions taking place in countries like China and North Korea. But how many realize the practice is morally acceptable– and even encouraged – in the United States of America? The investigative pro-life group Live Action, which has released videos exposing the abuses at the Planned Parenthood abortion business across the country, has released a new video today showing a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Austin, Texas encouraging a woman to get a sex-selection abortion. The video shows a Planned Parenthood staffer encouraging the woman to obtain a late-term abortion because she...

    Ann Nardelli has been a Catholic Democrat her entire life. Her father was one before her. And she couldn't imagine a day where that wouldn't be true. But that day was Wednesday of last week. I read a story about Jo Ann leaving the Democratic Party and was interested because she cited her Catholic faith as the reason. So I gave her a call. I got her machine and as I was leaving a message she picked up. She said she'd been screening her calls because so many people have been calling to say nasty things to her or just...

    Your parents spill a few secrets as they get older. One night at dinner with my mom, I ventured that the rhythm method had worked well for her, given that there were six years between my sister Peggy and my brother Kevin, and six more between Kevin and me. She arched an eyebrow. "Well, sometimes your father used something," she said. My parents were the most devout Catholics I've ever known. But my dad came from a family of 16 in County Clare in Ireland, and my mom's mother came from a family of 13 in County Mayo. So they...

    A light drizzle falls from the gray sky as Vicki Klein walks along the crooked sidewalk, bundled up in her raincoat and scarf to stay warm on the chilling January afternoon. She reaches the end of the sidewalk and turns around, retracing her steps once again for what might be the hundredth time today. The sidewalk has uncut grass on one side and a parking lot on the other, filled with seven cars. Vicki is careful not to cross the line that separates the sidewalk and the parking lot. She doesn’t want to cause any trouble. The rain continues, but...

    The archbishop of Washington on Sunday accused the network news programs of having "missed the boat" by largely ignoring lawsuits filed this past week by Catholic institutions challenging the Obama administration's so-called contraception mandate. Cardinal Donald Wuerl, speaking on "Fox News Sunday," was responding to an analysis by the conservative Media Research Center of how the networks' evening newscasts treated coverage of the dozen federal lawsuits filed Monday. According to the center, CBS spent 19 seconds on the story after it broke, while the other networks gave it no coverage. "It is puzzling, particularly since they're focusing so much attention...

    Only in public schools and universities is the fairly tale still taught that governments are representative of the people. The blue collared man on the street realizes the chips are stacked against him. For those who don’t have political connections, the pseudo fascist system that is still referred to as “capitalism” in the U.S. is akin to a casino game of chance. That is, the odds are always in the house’s favor. The house is the federal leviathan and its equivalent at the state and local level as well as the big, cartelized industries which feed off government protection. As...
