The College Board’s Politicization of U.S. History

Stanley Kurtz writes at NRO that The College Board is politicizing U.S. History from a left-wing perspective. Powerline agrees. Talking Points Memo, a left-wing blog, tends to disagree, of course. One need look no farther than the very first “Theme” which is “IDENTITY.” Identity politics is a hallmark of radical left-wing activism. For example, in leftist […]

Please pray for the SAS, Delta Force and SEAL Team 6

I’m not sure this information should have been publicized, but it has, and so I ask for prayers for the SAS, Delta Force and SEAL Team 6. Mirror: Elite British and US special forces troops are forming a hunter killer unit called Task Force Black – its orders: “Smash the Islamic State.” The undercover warriors […]

NEW YORK, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, this morning released a statement regarding the new “accommodation” to the HHS mandate announced last week.

What Steve King got wrong about Ferguson

It is disappointing to me to see conservatives like Steve King ignoring an important conservative principle in discussing the situation in Ferguson. In fact, Heritage Foundation lists it as the very first conservative principle among ten. First, the conservative believes that there exists an enduring moral order. That order is made for man, and man […]

Powell shooting inexcusable

From the Catholic catechism: By recalling the commandment, “You shall not kill,”our Lord asked for peace of heart and denounced murderous anger and hatred as immoral. Anger is a desire for revenge. “To desire vengeance in order to do evil to someone who should be punished is illicit,” but it is praiseworthy to impose restitution […]

Pro-life? Please ignore #IceBucketChallenge

I saw this coming. Now that there’s confirmation, I’ve asked my kids not to view or share any videos supporting ALS Association. It’s sad, but unfortunately some folks aren’t actually as pro-dignity as they claim to be. LifeNews: The pro-life community has a soft spot in its heart for the disabled and terminally ill. After all, […]
