    One year later, the aftershocks from Tea Party favorite Dave Brat’s stunning win over then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) are still rippling across Washington. (SNIP) Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) had just arrived at a birthday fundraiser for Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.) at Del Frisco’s Grille, a steakhouse near the White House. She would later tell McHenry that Cantor’s unexpected loss had made it her worst birthday ever. A few blocks away, Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas) was sitting down to dinner with Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman

His neighbors. And his wife.

He expressed contempt for GOP lawmakers moving toward legislation that could deliver amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. But the piece of the puzzle motivating him to enter the 2nd Congressional District Republican primary against U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins was a decision by GOP brethren in Washington, D.C., to go along with a reduction in future cost-of-living adjustments for military retirees.

    Fr. John Jenkins, C.S.C., the president of the University of Notre Dame, has a piece in The Wall Street Journal pleading for civility in debate. This is not the first time that Fr. Jenkins has used that word. In fact, calls for “civility” have become something of a hallmark of his presidency of the University. In recent years, there have reportedly been on-campus panel discussions on civility, a University forum called “A More Perfect Union: The Future of America’s Democracy,” and posters urging students to take the “Notre Dame Pledge for Virtuous Discourse,” which encourages students to engage in respectful...

He stated his sadness that the honors bestowed on Obama had been taken as “ambiguity in our position on matters of Catholic teaching.” Notre Dame, he asserted, “was unequivocally committed to the sanctity of human life and to its protection from conception to natural death.” Remember those words: “unequivocally committed” with no “ambiguity in our position.” How are these words reconciled with the university’s...

    ( – Janet Jenkins, a practicing lesbian who was once in a “civil union” with ex-lesbian Lisa Miller, is conducting a media campaign to locate Miller’s seven-year-old daughter in an attempt to gain custody of the child. Miller’s daughter, Isabella, was conceived via artificial insemination during the pair’s relationship, and has no biological relationship with Jenkins. Miller disappeared with Isabella in December, apparently in an effort to prevent a Vermont judge from transferring custody of her child to Jenkins. But Jenkins is doing numerous interviews with mainstream media outlets, ostensibly in an effort to locate Isabella (described by Jenkins...

Making no mention of the intrinsic evil of abortion — the reason for the great wave of protests brought on by his invitation — Father Jenkins focuses on the evil caused by “political, religious, racial, or national” divisions. The stigma of evil, and the...

    We all knew this fight was coming. The Catholic Church and the Catholic colleges have been heading toward a crash since at least 1990, when John Paul II issued Ex Corde Ecclesiae, his apostolic constitution for Catholic institutions of higher education. And now, at last, the battle is public—brought to fever pitch by Notre Dame’s bestowing of an honorary law degree on a prominent supporter of legalized abortion. As it happens, that supporter of abortion is also the president of the United States, which is unfortunate in a number of ways—beginning with the fact that the office of the...

    PRESIDENT Barack Obama yesterday tackled America's fiery abortion debate head-on, appealing for considered, open-minded debate.Amid angry protests in which 40 people were arrested, the president made his most extensive public comments yet on the sensitive question of whether abortion should be permitted by law. "At some level, the views of the two camps are irreconcilable," Mr Obama said. "Each side will continue to make its case to the public with passion and conviction, but surely we can do so without reducing those with differing views to caricature." He was speaking at the University of Notre Dame commencement ceremony, during which...

    The University of Notre Dame is taking a hit with President Obama's commencement invitation, not just to its reputation but its wallet. The 44th president will deliver the school's commencement address Sunday afternoon, as anti-abortion protesters -- some of whom already have been arrested at prior demonstrations -- threaten to disrupt the main event. The scrum has attracted widespread media attention and overshadowed other aspects of the Catholic institution's graduation ceremonies. But long after Obama leaves South Bend, Catholics and members of the Notre Dame community will debate the president's 2009 commencement address and the university's awarding of an honorary...

    A great deal of criticism has been leveled at Notre Dame President, Rev John I. Jenkins, for his choice to honor President Obama at this year’s commencement. But Fr. Jenkins, like all university presidents, must consider the will of the school’s governing board. The Notre Dame Board of Trustees is a powerful organization, comprised of top international business owners, chairs of rich endowments, academic leaders, judges, attorneys, faculty, and prominent clergy. These individuals are typically very wealthy, well-connected and highly accomplished; many with broad interests outside the university. A closer look at the board and its affiliations might shed light...

    The Most Reverend Timothy A. Dolan, Archbishop of New York, explained during a recent interview that his opposition to Notre Dame’s slated honor for President Obama on May 17 is due to the President’s support for the “intrinsic evil” of abortion. He also contrasted abortion to other serious concerns, like the Iraq war and the death penalty, which “are open to some discussion and are not intrinsically evil.” “Archbishop Dolan’s clear teaching should help Americans understand that there is nothing political about the bishops’ protest of Notre Dame’s action,” said Patrick Reilly, president of The Cardinal Newman Society. “This is...
