    So - what if the whole Trump thing is exactly what they did to George Bush, magnified 1000%? They made him out, in the media, on TV, in the blogs - to be a terrible person that NO ONE in their right mind would support. It was part of their strategy, pre-planning if you will, to make darned sure Obama would be elected and people would be wound up. So now it's Trump this, Trump that, Trump is crazy, Trump is hated by all the leaders of all the free world -- followed by "Obama urges people to unite and...

    Since New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has endorsed Donald Trump, he has been: Humiliated by video showing Trump ordering him onto the plane and telling him to “go home.” Condemned by his former finance co-chair Meg Whitman. (“The Governor is mistaken if he believes he can now count on my support, and I call on Christie’s donors and supporters to reject the Governor and Donald Trump outright. I believe they will. For some of us, principle and country still matter.”) Excoriated for his disastrous TV interview on Sunday. Phrases like “train wreck,” “off the rails” and “disaster” were used to...

Talk about a medium that can reach every home. Talk about unabashed ad hominem attacks. Is there anything left of our Republic if the media is not honorable?

    The Americans With No Abilities Act (ANAA) President Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate are considering sweeping legislation that will provide new benefits for many more Americans. The Americans With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition. "Roughly 50 percent of Americans do not possess the competence and drive necessary to carve out a meaningful role for themselves in society," said California Sen. Barbara Boxer. "We can no longer stand by and allow People of Inability (POI) to be ridiculed and passed...

    Catholic Culture ^ | April 26, 2013 | Phil Lawler
    Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Jennifer Graham tells me something that I hadn’t heard about Boston Marathon bombing. As dozens of victims were sprawled across Boylston Street, many of them in danger of death, Catholic priests came running to the scene—and were turned away. Doctors and nurses were welcome at the bombing scene. Firefighters and police officers were welcome. But Catholic priests, who might have offered the solace of the sacraments, were not. ”Catholics need not apply.” That slogan was familiar in Boston years ago, before Irish and Italian immigrants took over control of the city. Now, after decades...

    July 3, 2012 Romney Campaign Declaring Cease Fire on Health Care Posted by Staff In the aftermath of the Supreme Court health care ruling, the early conventional wisdom was that an unfavorable health care ruling at the court would be good for Republicans politically, even as it was a serious policy setback for conservatives. But that's not shaping up to be the case. Mitt Romney, after giving a brief statement decrying the decision, has been virtually silent on criticizing the health care law. He's been on vacation and his campaign has been giving off clear signals that it doesn't want...

    Members and supporters of a radical labor union stampeded a San Marino at 6:00 p.m. because he is an officer with a major banking institution. Piggybacking on the anarchist Occupy LA and Occupy Wall Street model, approximately 100 protesters were bused to a residence on Woodstock Rd., trampled the landscape and repeatedly pounded on the front door. Nobody was home, as the residents had been tipped off by the financial institution's security department.

    A prominent Catholic writer says “selective” and “salacious” reporting of Catholic clergy in the aftermath of clerical sexual abuse scandals is being used to discredit a “powerful moral voice” in public debate. Acknowledging genuine abuse, she says present day anti-clericalism echoes the slanders of pre-Revolutionary France. That view comes from Elizabeth Lev, an art historian who has written for Inside the Vatican, Sacerdos and First Things magazine. A regular columnist for Zenit, she is also the daughter of former U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican Mary Ann Glendon. “While no one denies the wrongdoing and the harm caused by a small...
