  • Fourth Circuit Sets the Stage for a New National Gun Ban

    The 4th Circuit's decision in Kolbe et al v. Maryland was a direct, if often legally incomprehensible attempt to greatly limit the Supreme Court's seminal decision in Heller and set the stage for a new national ban on semi-automatic rifles. Heller held that the 2nd Amendment confers an individual not a collective right to keep and bear arms. Kolbe, so long as it stands, says this individual right does not extend to any firearm with military utility, which is arguably pretty much every gun ever made.
  • Principalities and Powers: Spiritual Combat 1942-1943 (Fr. George Rutler)

    Mercatornet ^ | September 12, 2014 | Francis Phillips |
    Fr Rutler, a parish priest in Manhattan, New York and a well-known essayist, has taken his title from the famous quotation in St Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians. This is in part because of he wishes to show the larger forces at work during WWII and also because an old friend and fellow priest had bequeathed to him a pile of newspapers, journals and radio transcripts for this particular year. Growing up after the war, Rutler sees his book as “a feeble act of thanks from my generation” for the previous one that had endured so many sacrifices on behalf...

    EWTN ^ | Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.
    Maximillian's Marian Spirituality by Father John A. Hardon, S.J. [1914-2000] We will reconstruct the main features of Maximillian's spirituality. The spirituality of St. Maximillian is based directly on this truth: that the Immaculate Virgin Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces. That is the first premise of his Marian thinking. If this were not so, Maximillian explains, all our strength and effort in the spiritual life would be in vain. In other words, our spiritual life depends on grace. That's obvious, but it also depends on the grace that we must receive through Mary. Second, the Blessed Virgin Mary is...

    Obamas message is not new: tax the rich, give to the poor. Sure, it sounds nice or does it? This strain sounds pretty Marxist to me. Why? Because his tax cuts are not tax cuts. He promises tax cuts for 95% of Americans. Guess what? Only 62% of Americans even pay federal income tax. So those other people, the ones who dont pay taxes, cant get cuts on something they dont pay! So theyre just getting checks from the government. You know what we actually call Obamas tax cuts? Income redistribution. Yes, I want to help the poor. But you...

    The great Auschwitz martyr, St. Maximilian Kolbe (d. 1941), during the 1920s, translated from the original French into Polish the official depositions given to both state and Church officials by Bernadette Soubirous, the visionary of Lourdes, France. Between the dates of February 11th and July 16th, 1858, 14-year-old Bernadette claimed to have seen, a total of eighteen times, a lady wearing a lovely white dress with a bright belt who had on each of her feet a pale yellow rose, the same color as her rosary beads. Following strict investigations, these sightings were approved by the Church as apparitions of...

    Economic retaliation from Mexico is a real threat if U.S. lawmakers repeal a provision that allows Mexican truckers access to the U.S. interior, according to former U.S. Rep. Jim Kolbe. "If Congress succeeds in blocking (the program) I believe Mexico could retaliate, as they are entitled to do," the Arizona Republican told members of the Southern Arizona Logistics Education Organization in Tucson on Thursday. Kolbe, who retired at the beginning of the year after 11 terms in Congress, is the new chairman of the Canamex Corridor Task Force and part of a three-member committee appointed to monitor the cross-border truck...

    WASHINGTON Justice Department investigators have absolved former Arizona Rep. Jim Kolbe of wrongdoing in his relationships with House pages, Kolbe says. In a statement Wednesday, Kolbe and his Washington lawyers said they received notice Tuesday that investigators had completed their work on the preliminary inquiry opened by federal prosecutors last fall, and saw no reason to pursue it further. Prosecutors began looking into Kolbe's relationships with House pages after hearing reports that he took a Fourth of July camping trip to the Grand Canyon with two former pages and others in 1996. The inquiry was launched amid a separate...

    In testimony to the House ethics committee investigating the Mark Foley page scandal, the House's former administrator described outgoing Rep. Jim Kolbe as a "nuisance" who "spent far too much time socially interacting with the pages," according to the committee's report released Friday. The comments from former Clerk of the House Jeff Trandahl, who oversaw the Congressional Page Program, were only part of an investigative report that found no evidence any current lawmakers or aides violated any rules, and recommended no sanctions. In its findings and recommendations, however, the panel went on to say there were a "significant number of...

    WASHINGTON - House Speaker Dennis Hastert said Tuesday he'll dismiss anyone on his staff found to have covered up concerns about ex-Rep. Mark Foley's approaches to former pages. Hastert said he huddled with his staff members last week and he believes they acted appropriately in handling information on Foley's conduct. But he also issued them a stern warning: "If they did cover something up, then they should not continue to have their jobs." The FBI is conducting a criminal investigation and the House ethics committee is investigating any potential violations of standards of conduct. Timeline pushed back Meanwhile, Rep. Jim...

    Another Republican congressman knew of disgraced former representative Mark Foley's inappropriate Internet exchanges as far back as 2000 and personally confronted Foley about his communications. A spokeswoman for Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-Ariz.) confirmed yesterday that a former page showed the congressman Internet messages that had made the youth feel uncomfortable with the direction Foley (R-Fla.) was taking their e-mail relationship. Last week, when the Foley matter erupted, a Kolbe staff member suggested to the former page that he take the matter to the clerk of the House, Karen Haas, said Kolbe's press secretary, Korenna Cline. source with direct knowledge of...

The move indicates the diminished level of national influence and interest — at least for now — in what has long been considered a competitive race.

    Republican Congressman Jim Kolbe, who is leaving office after eleven terms, will not be supporting the Republican candidate to succeed him. Today, Kolbe, who supported state Representative Steve Huffman in the primary for the eighth Congressional district, issued a statement saying he congratulates conservative Republican Randy Graf on his victory. However, he says "there are such profound and fundamental differences" between Graf and him on several key issues that he can't endorse Graf for the general election. Graf, a former golf pro, campaigned foremost on the need to secure the border with Mexico and put a halt to illegal immigration.
