Dobbs at Two Years, by Russell Shaw

By Russell Shaw, Catholic World Report – If anyone had imagined the Supreme Court’s 2022 ruling was its final word on abortion, he or she surely knows better now… Two years ago, the Supreme Court vindicated the right to life by reversing a 1973 ruling, which abruptly asserted the existence of a constitutional right to abortion that no one had ever previously heard of. Suddenly, a new day dawned for the defenders of unborn human life in America… So how do things stand after two years?

After Massive Criticism, Fort Liberty Walks Back Slide Claiming Pro-Life Groups are Terrorists, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – Following massive online criticism, Fort Liberty has walked back a slide in an anti-terrorism presentation that claims pro-life Americans are terrorists… As LifeNews.com reported, Journalist Sam Shoemate exposed the terrorism briefing on X (Twitter) that was held at Fort Liberty (Bragg) yesterday where they listed several Pro-Life organizations as “terrorist organizations.”… The military facility has since walked back the slide with a post on X (Twitter).

Why Catholicism and Liberalism Are Irreconcilable Enemies, by Matthew McCusker

By Matthew McCusker, LifeSiteNews – This is the fifth part of a series on the true nature of human freedom… The first part discussed man’s natural liberty, by which he is free to choose how he will act. The second part examined moral liberty, by which man freely acts in accordance with his own nature. The third part explored the ways in which God assists us, so that we might attain moral liberty. The fourth part explained how laws made by the state can help man to attain true liberty… The subject of this instalment is the ideology of liberalism, and its incompatibility with true freedom.

Senators Slam Army After Presentation Calls Pro-Life Americans Terrorists, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – Senators James Lankford (R-OK) and Ted Budd (R-NC), along with Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC) and their colleagues, sent a letter to Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth demanding answers after an anti-terrorism training conducted at Fort Liberty, North Carolina depicted Pro-Life Americans as terrorists.

The American Conservative: NATO’s Bridge to Nowhere

The American Conservative – The war is lost, Ukraine is ruined for at least a generation, and Russia and the West are inching closer and closer to direct, possibly nuclear, confrontation—yet the answer, as always with these people, is more NATO… In fact the very opposite is true—peace and stability in eastern Europe will come with the recognition that NATO’s plan to expand to Ukraine lies at the heart of the current crisis.

GOP Abortion Language Draft: Prelude to Defeat? by Alex Chediak

By Alex Chediak, The Stream – How Big Is the Change?… Pretty big. Here’s the 2024 language: “We believe that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees that no person can be denied Life or Liberty without Due Process, and that the States are, therefore, free to pass Laws protecting those Rights. After 51 years, because of us, that power has been given to the States and to a vote of the People. We will oppose Late Term Abortion, while supporting mothers and policies that advance Prenatal Care, access to Birth Control, and IVF (fertility treatments).”

Trump Owes Pro-Lifers Nothing—and That’s a Good Thing, by Darrick Taylor

By Darrick Taylor, Crisis Magazine – The problem is that, with the exception of the transgender craze, socially conservative Catholics and their allies are no longer “the people.” They are a minority, one that simply does not have the power to do what they most want—ban abortion and return marriage law to sanity. The problem is that the cultural revolutionaries who effected these legal changes have also managed to turn public opinion firmly in their favor. Most Americans favor some restrictions on abortion, but the majority want it to be legal in at least some cases.

Leaked US Army Briefing Slide Calls Pro-Life Organizations ‘Terrorist Groups’, by Calvin Freiburger

By Calvin Freiburger, LifeSiteNews – The slide, reportedly from a terrorism briefing at Fort Liberty, names the pro-life organizations National Right to Life Committee and Operation Rescue as ‘terrorist groups,’ characterized by their opposition to abortion and Roe v. Wade (misspelled ‘Row’)… Military officials under the Biden administration continue to teach that their peaceful political opponents are violent extremists, according to a report about a terrorism presentation given to U.S. Army members at Fort Liberty (the renamed Fort Bragg).

Democrats Only Have Themselves to Blame for Their Joe Biden Mess, by Josh Hammer

By Josh Hammer, American Greatness – Democrats and their media boosters find themselves in a no-win situation. And the culprit is their very own hubris and myopia… It has been two weeks since palpably senile President Joe Biden delivered the single worst performance ever given in a presidential debate, and the fallout continues to tear the Democratic Party asunder.
For two weeks, most of the left-wing corporate media, joined by a small but growing number of elected Democratic officials, have desperately been trying to convince Uncle Joe and Jill “Lady Macbeth” Biden to stand down. …

For Biden, Pushing Radical Marxist Ideologies Trumps Enjoying His Twilight Years, by Angeline Tan

By  Angeline Tan, The Remnant – When (George) Stephanopoulos questioned Biden if anything could persuade him otherwise, Biden declared: “It depends on, if the Lord Almighty comes down and tells me that, I might do that.”… From his track record over the past few years, Biden is neither pro-God nor pro-democracy. It seems that he is bent on sacrificing his twilight years and physical/mental health in order to help his unelected bosses push these radical ideologies onto Americans and the rest of the world. …

(Biden) Our Brezhnev, Our Pravda, Our Soviet Union. . . by Victor Davis Hanson

By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness – Something similar has happened to a calcified America under President Joe Biden. Like the late-stage Leonid Brezhnev, Biden is now a president in name only. He has outsourced his administration to a vestigial hard-left apparat from the Obama years… Now, Biden can no longer even perform his assigned ceremonial tasks of putting a moderate veneer on radical, nihilist agendas that are stagnating the country… Yet our Pravda (Truth) journalists have sworn to the American people that, in private, the reclusive, three-day-a-week Biden outpaces the energy and drive of those half his age… our Pravda media go into overdrive to convince the public that what they see and hear is not real.

America’s Conflicts Are Not Primarily Political Or Ideological, But Religious, by John Daniel Davidson

By John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist – The conflicts roiling American society today are not primarily political or even ideological, but religious… America is supposedly a secular country, with separation of church and state, free exercise of religion, and so on. Yet we find ourselves in the middle of what amounts to a religious war. How could this be?… Because America, like all nations, is founded on religious claims, and relies on those claims for its coherence.

Globalism Can Only Be Defeated if We Restore the Family, State, and Catholic Church, by Matthew McCusker

By Matthew McCusker, LifeSiteNews – An increasing number of people are waking up to the power that unaccountable international organizations have over nation states and over the members of the Catholic Church… These bodies include multinational corporations that are often wealthier than nation states; media organizations that create false news narratives; international bodies like the United Nations and European Union; and influential groups like the World Economic Forum (WEF) whose former head, Klaus Schwab, boasted that his disciples – such as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau – “penetrate the global cabinets of countries.”

Senate Republicans Block Democrat Bill for Abortions Up to Birth Nationwide, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked legislation led by Democrats to push abortions up to birth nationwide… Democrats in the U.S. Senate held a vote tonight on a measure that would allow a pro-abortion bill to advance in the chamber… Democrats needed 60 votes tonight to force the Senate to vote on the bill itself, though Republicans were able to prevent them from getting to that figure. The vote was 49-44, falling short of the super-majority ….

Don’t Blame Trump: The Pro-Life Movement Is a Revolution that Might Take 100 Years, by John Zmirak

By John Zmirak, The Stream – When Roe v. Wade got overturned in 2022, we felt the same way as when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989. This vast monolith of evil, caked with innocent blood, now lay in heaps of rubble. As someone who joined the pro-life movement at age 11 — waving off my mother’s fearful objections and going door to door collecting signatures — it was one of my happiest moments. No other political issue is half as important in God’s own eyes.

Americans Worked Too Hard For Equal Voting Rights For Noncitizens To Disenfranchise Us, by Kerri Toloczko

By Kerri Toloczko, The Federalist – The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) states it is unlawful for noncitizens to vote in federal elections. It is also unlawful to steal a car. That is what locks are for… Until the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility Act (SAVE Act) of 2024 was proposed, the NVRA had no locks — no way to ensure that only American citizens vote in U.S. elections… The glaring loophole in current voting law is that it does not require documentary proof of citizenship for registration.

Opinion: The Jesuits Come Home to Roost, by Rick Fuentes

By Rick Fuentes, American Thinker – Pope Francis née Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who practices an ecclesiology tailored to the spirit of the times, could easily be mistaken as Joe Biden in a white cassock and skull cap. They share an imperious disposition that takes delight in overturning or diminishing the decrees of their predecessors, overregulate their administrations with orders and encyclicals, are vindictive in their treatment of ideological opponents, look unfavorably upon conservative American Catholics, believe their foundational documents are out of step with modern times, and are hell-bent on transforming their sovereignties.

Pro-Life Leader Says New GOP Platform is Pro-Life But Needs Improvement, by Joshua Mercer 

By Joshua Mercer, LifeNews – CatholicVote President Brian Burch is weighing in on the GOP Convention 2024 platform document draft, which some conservatives have criticized for its language on in-vitro fertilization and birth control… According to sources close to the process who spoke with CatholicVote, an excerpt from the RNC’s current draft of the platform reads: We proudly stand for families and Life. We believe that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees that no person can be denied Life or Liberty without Due Process, and that the States are, therefore, free to pass Laws protecting those Rights.

Republican Party Platform, Pro-Lifers View as Mixed Bag, by Peter Pinedo

By Peter Pinedo, CNA – While previous versions of the document said that unborn children have a “fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed” and called for a constitutional amendment to guarantee that right, this year’s platform uses much more moderate language and emphasizes the role of states in protecting life… It reads: “We proudly stand for families and life. We believe that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees that no person can be denied life or liberty without due process, and that the states are, therefore, free to pass laws protecting those rights.”

Republicans and Pro-Life Leaders Look to Find Common Ground on Platform, by Peter Laffin 

By Peter Laffin, National Catholic Register – But for now, at least, the pro-life movement appears willing to cede ground and work in cooperation with the Trump-led GOP against their common enemy: Joe Biden and the pro-abortion rights Democrats… On Monday morning, the 2024 Republican convention platform committee plank on abortion was released, and despite claiming to “stand for families and life,” it does not include a call for a constitutional amendment to grant personhood protections for the unborn as it had for decades. It also voices explicit support for IVF (in vitro fertilization) and contraception.

Democrats Oppose Election Integrity, by Thomas Gallatin

By Thomas Gallatin, Patriot Post – House Democrats are preparing to go to war against their Republican counterparts this week over the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act. The Republican-created election integrity bill would require voters to provide proof of U.S. citizenship to cast a vote in federal elections. Despite all the “save our democracy” mumbo jumbo, it’s somehow not even remotely surprising to see Democrats object.

Atheism Is Just Wishful Thinking for People Who Crave Less Meaning in Life, by John Zmirak

By John Zmirak, The Stream – As I document in “No Second Amendment, No First”, the most powerful effect of Darwinism on Christians was to convince us on some deep level that our faith doesn’t deal with facts. It cannot survive rational scrutiny, cold-eyed reflection, and modern research. Instead of moral realities derived from philosophical truths and the facts of divine revelation, our faith consists of “values,” of sentiments and fanciful hopes that emerge from our aspirations. Religion is for the heart, but science owns our heads. Faith is a thing for silly women, weak-minded boys, and the sweaty, unruly masses.

Republican Party Committee Adopts Platform Saying 14th Amendment “Guarantees” Right to Life, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – The RNC’s platform committee has adopted a policy document that confirms the 14th Amendment “guarantees” the right to life for unborn children… “We believe that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees that no person can be denied life or liberty without due process and that the states are, therefore, free to pass laws protecting those rights,” the platform says… The platform does also promote the state’s rights position of nominee Donald Trump by saying states are free to pass their own abortion laws, including bans that protect babies from abortions.

Planned Parenthood Exploits More Children With Trans Hormones Than Anyone, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – The provision of transgender services at Planned Parenthood clinics has surged in recent years, coinciding with the growing profitability of the transgender medical sector that exploits children. Data from regional branches of the abortion giant indicates a significant expansion… Planned Parenthood began selling hormone treatments in 2005. By 2022, 41 out of 49 regional branches were  exploiting kids with the sales. However, the past three years have seen a substantial uptick in Planned Parenthood’s involvement in transgender healthcare. Now 45 of its affiliates sell the dangerous hormones.

Stephanopoulos & Biden—And the Lord Almighty, by Daniel Oliver

By Daniel Oliver, American Greatness – George Stephanopoulos’s interview of President Biden was painful to watch—unless, probably, you’re Donald Trump. … Biden said only the Lord Almighty could persuade him to drop out of the race. Given Biden’s position on abortion, it would not be surprising if the Lord Almighty took that action. And this column can now predict that that is exactly what the Lord Almighty will do.

Joe Biden’s Mental Incapacity Is Only Half The Problem, by Margot Cleveland

By Margot Cleveland, The Federalist – President Biden’s cognitive incompetence renders him unfit for office. But so too does his performance over the last three-plus years that left America with a broken border, spiraling crime, high inflation, and a world on fire… Since Joe Biden came out at the presidential debate as mentally incapacitated, the country’s focus has been on his continued service as commander-in-chief and whether Democrats should replace him as their candidate for November’s election. In fighting off calls that he be replaced, Biden and his apologists have taken two tacks.

Brent Bozell: When the Media Turn on Biden, He Drops Out, by Craig Bannister

By Craig Bannister, MRC TV – MRC Pres. Brent Bozell said… “Conservatives have been pointing out the obvious for months and months and, in some cases, some people have pointed out for years that this poor guy has been in real decline… “And, all along the media have been saying ‘Oh, no, no, no your terrible conservatives, how awful you are,’ while conservatives look at the obvious.”… because it’s extremely dangerous for America’s enemies, like Iran and Russia, to be watching and seeing that our president may well be senile, Bozell said.

Three-Fourths of Voters Say Biden ‘Is Just Too Old’ to be an Effective President, by Craig Bannister

By Craig Bannister, MRC TV – Three in four U.S. voters think Joe Biden is “just too old to be an effective president,” results of a new national survey reveal… A New York Times/Siena College poll of registered voters, conducted June 28-July 2, finds that 74% at least “somewhat” agree that Democrats’ 2024 candidate for reelection is too old to do the job, with more than half (53%) “strongly” agreeing. Voters think Biden’s too old by more than a three-to-one margin over the 22% who at least somewhat believe he’s not.

Joe Biden: “I’m in This Race to the End, No One is Pushing Me Out”, by Joshua Mercer

By Joshua Mercer, LifeNews – After reportedly telling allies in private that he might drop out, President Joe Biden told his campaign staff on Wednesday: “I’m in this race to the end.”… The New York Times stated that the embattled president “told key allies that he knows the coming days are crucial.”…..

3 Ways Feminism Laid The Groundwork For Transgenderism, by Carrie Gress

By Carrie Gress, The Federalist – For women, motherhood was largely erased as an essential and replaced with a vision of womanhood modeled after a masculine ideal. To maintain this new ideal for women — the pursuit of a career — women were sold the rabid dependence on contraception and abortion that we see today. It can be argued that feminism has been transitioning women into men for decades, with few noticing because of the enticing idols of achievement and independence.

Brent Bozell: When the Media Turn on Biden, He Drops Out

By Craig Bannister, MRC TV – Now that Pres. Joe Biden’s strongest backer – the liberal media – are turning against his continuation as the Democrats’ 2024 presidential candidate, he’ll have to drop out of the race due to his ever-declining cognitive state, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell said Wednesday… “Conservatives have been pointing out the obvious for months and months and, in some cases, some people have pointed out for years that this poor guy has been in real decline…”

China’s Latest Spy App, Temu, by Thomas Gallatin

By Thomas Gallatin, Patriot Post – The fast-growing app is Chinese spy malware disguised as an e-commerce site… It hit the market just two years ago and quickly became one of the fastest-growing websites on the Internet. Indeed, only OpenAI’s ChatGPT has grown faster. Over 100 million Americans have used the site… This year, (Temu) is targeting $60 billion in sales and is clearly rising as a competitor to Amazon, which also happens to sell plenty of Chinese-made products.

Ven. Fulton Sheen: ‘The Declaration of Independence Is a Declaration of Dependence’, by Joseph Pronechen

By Joseph Pronechen, EWTN News – “The Declaration of Independence, I repeat, is a Declaration of Dependence,” Sheen emphasized. He continues: We are independent of dictators because we are de­pendent on God. God is the necessary factor of our salvation. As a result, he is to be the center of our lives. His ways ought to permeate every aspect and area of our lives: education, employment, pleasure, mourning, socializing, etc. All is done in sight of the omnipotent Lord, and all we do should be done reflecting this knowledge. Our every interaction should be filled with the love of our Savior.

Socialism And Communism Are Just Weasel Words For Slavery, by Stella Morabito

By Stella Morabito, Sr. Contributor, The Federalist – Marxism is literally slavery. Let’s say it every chance we get: As America moves toward communism, it moves toward slavery… Communism is clearly a modern form of slavery, as I’ll explain below. Yet recent opinion polls show that communism is ridiculously popular with younger generations of Americans, especially when it’s presented as “socialism.”… Communism is slavery that poses as justice. This has been proven over 100 years of history and by at least 100 million murders at the hands of communist regimes treating their human subjects as chattel. Socialism is the weasel word that paves the path to the slavery we politely call communism or Marxism.

Pro-Life Groups Call on Republican Party to Keep Pro-Life Platform, by Steven Ertelt 

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – Human Coalition Action on Monday joined other advocacy groups in calling on 2024 Republican National Convention (RNC) delegates to uphold the party’s historic support for pro-life principles and policies… In a letter led by the group Advancing American Freedom and signed by Human Coalition Action and other pro-life and advocacy groups, the coalition urged RNC delegates to ensure that the party’s platform continues to be “bold and unambiguous on life.”

Has Joe Read Roe? by Michael Warsaw

By Michael Warsaw, EWTN News – President Joe Biden’s disastrous June 27 debate performance was alarming on many fronts. But there was one element that was particularly troubling for pro-life Americans: his garbled articulation of Roe v. Wade… Biden reveres Roe. Never mind that he disagreed with its reasoning as a freshman senator when it came out 51 years ago. Today, it’s his fifth gospel, the lynchpin of his abortion-focused presidency and now-faltering reelection campaign.

Politics Without Truth: The Reality of Our Time, by James Kalb

By James Kalb, Catholic World Report – Compare a Trump speech with the “Russian collusion” affair or the campaign to discredit the Hunter Biden laptop. Leading politicians, elite journalists, and once-admired federal agencies, presenting themselves as serious and ethical people, worked together—with no concern for truth or fear of consequences—to construct or suppress explosive claims about misconduct in the inner circles of two presidential campaigns… Here we are dealing not with everyday falsehoods but with loss of a conception of truth …

Fr. Shenan J. Boquet: Abortion and the 2024 Election

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet, Human Life International – Last week, I urged my readers to recognize that overturning Roe v. Wade was only the beginning of the fight to end abortion and its mindset in America… Numerous states have passed total or near-total abortion bans since Dobbs overturned Roe… Inevitably, pro-abortion forces will react to this new situation in the same way as pro-life activists. Except pro-abortion forces will first turn their attention to shoring up pro-abortion laws at the state level.

On Abortion, Trump and Biden Both Got It Wrong, by Monica Miller

By Monica Miller, Crisis Magazine – …on the issue of legalized abortion, and in particular the Roe v. Wade decision itself, both Biden and Trump got it wrong. Indeed, it is staggering just how wrong a sitting president and a former president were regarding the most important social issue of our time. Biden especially misrepresented what the 1973 Supreme Court decision actually said and what it actually permitted in terms of the legalization of abortion, and Trump seemed not to understand the goals of the pro-life movement.

Tyranny for Dummies: Three How-To Manuals, by Jonathan David Carson

By Jonathan David Carson, Ph.D., Crisis Magazine – Writing in Crisis, Joseph Pearce praises “the novel’s perennial relevance” as a “cautionary vision of the future” that “the present in which we find ourselves” is becoming. He cites then-Cardinal Ratzinger in 1992, who quotes Pope Benedict XV: The coming of a world state is longed for, by all the worst and most distorted elements…. In it no acknowledgement would be made of the authority of a father over his children, or of God over human society. If these ideas are put into practice, there will inevitably follow a reign of unheard-of terror.

By ‘Democracy,’ Democrats Mean A Shadow Government Of Unelected Biden Aides, by Margot Cleveland

By Margot Cleveland, The Federalist – The portrayal of Biden as Thursday night’s truth teller is laughable. The Democrat dropped whoppers left and right between his vacant stares. From his lie that the Border Patrol union endorsed him — something fact-checked in real time by the union itself on X — to Biden’s fabrications about inflation and military deaths, to his continued lie that Trump had called Nazi’s very fine people, framing Biden as honest fares no better than portraying the president as of sound mind.

Jury Rules in Favor of Freedom: Blue Cross BlueShield of Tennessee Ordered to Pay Almost $700,000 to Employee Fired for Refusing COVID Vaccine, by Jim Hᴏft

By Jim Hᴏft, Gateway Pundit – In a landmark decision, a federal jury has ordered Blue Cross BlueShield of Tennessee (BCBST) to pay nearly $700,000 to Tanja Benton, a former employee who was terminated for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine based on her religious beliefs… Benton, who served as a Bio Statistical Research Scientist, asserts that her role involved minimal client interaction and no necessity for physical presence at medical facilities.

Democrat Media Aren’t Upset Biden Is Senile, They’re Mad They Can’t Hide It Anymore, by Mark Hemingway

By Mark Hemingway, The Federalist – Had Democrats and the media been honest about how obvious Biden’s condition was a year ago, they might have a winning candidate now… Shortly after Biden’s disastrous debate ended Thursday, Ben Rhodes tweeted: “Just think about what that debate looked like to people and leaders around the world.” Rhodes, a loyal Democrat soldier, was careful not to say that everyone was far more concerned about how the current president came off than Donald Trump, but he didn’t have to.

With Abortions and Rainbows for All, by John Murdock

By John Murdock, First Things – Should I have been surprised that ReproductiveRights.gov exists? Joe Biden has shifted from touting his long record of supporting the Hyde Amendment and opposing late-term abortions to making unfettered abortion rights the centerpiece of his presidential campaign. But the “dot gov” should still matter, and it does to me as a federal employee… ReproductiveRights.gov offers resources for avoiding reproduction or snuffing out life in its early stages.

Father Jeffrey Kirby: 4th of July Reflection: Freedom’s Fragile Reality

By Father Jeffrey Kirby, EWTN News – From the many experiences that came from living in Cold War Germany, there were certain lessons that were regularly affirmed and became very clear in my young mind: Namely, freedom isn’t free, and good things are worth fighting for. The basis of these lessons came from a holistic view of the human person, which included an understanding of our dignity and an awareness and appreciation of our call to transcendence.

FOIA Finds Catholic Charities Colluded with City of Chicago to House Illegal Immigrants, by Paul Drabik

By Paul Drabik, Gateway Pundit – A recent FOIA request to the City of Chicago from Terry Newsome of Behind Enemy Lines podcast has found a curious relationship between Catholic Charities org. and City of Chicago officials. In an email from February 20, 2024 a Catholic Charities official sent an update to multiple Illinois government and City of Chicago officials including Chicago Public School and Northwestern employees. The email shows multiple graphs detailing the progress of Catholic Charities efforts to house illegals.

Supreme Court Reigns in Regulators’ Power to Expand, Create, Interpret Laws, by Craig Bannister

By Craig Bannister, MRC TV – A Supreme Court decision released Friday overruled a 1984 decision that gave government agencies broad power to interpret, change and expand laws they consider to be ambiguous… In Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo, Friday’s decision overrules Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council, which decided that courts must defer to the interpretative decrees of government agencies. The so-called “Chevron Doctrine” had allowed agencies to bypass Congress and, essentially, make laws restricting and compelling Americans’ actions.

Biden Admin Says Trump Supporters, Military and Religious People are “Domestic Terrorist” Threats, by Joshua Mercer 

By Joshua Mercer, LifeNews – Per America First Legal, the newly released batch of documents “exposes how the Biden Administration classifies someone as a person likely to commit ‘domestic violent extremist’ attacks, particularly those who support President Trump, are ‘in the military,’ or are ‘religious.’”… The DHS document stated: “If you ask researchers to dive into indicators of extremists and terrorism, they might indicate being in the military or religious.”

Louisiana Governor Explains Why He Cut Money to Catholic Charities: Money is Going to Illegal Immigrants, by McKenna Snow

By McKenna Snow, Catholic Vote – Rep. La. Gov. Jeff Landry, a Catholic, this week explained why he vetoed $1 million earmarked for Catholic Charities of Acadiana’s homeless shelter services, arguing that the money is used to support illegal immigrants… Landry explained in a written statement, “Part of Catholic Charities mission is to support the influx of illegal aliens into our country.”… “Taxpayers should never foot the bill for nonprofits who are contributing to the illegal immigration crisis our nation is facing,” he continued. “I don’t believe the majority of our legislators would support this either.”

How Biden’s Debate Catastrophe Made the World More Dangerous, by Bob Unruh

By Bob Unruh, World Net Daily – John Daniel Davidson, who wrote at The Federalist of the new, enhanced threat… He said while the “chatter” was all about what the Democrats will do for a 2024 candidate, “now that the president has shown himself to be unfit for office,” there’s another issue… “An important point has gone largely unnoticed: America essentially has no president right now. Whomever is calling the shots in the White House, especially on foreign affairs, it isn’t Biden. …”

Was Biden’s Televised Meltdown a Glitch in the Matrix, or Part of The Plan™? by John Zmirak

By John Zmirak, The Stream – Was Joe Biden sent into the debate with Donald Trump with the full expectation that he would perform so badly that he would take himself out of the running? So the Democrats could nominate someone else who’s more electable, fully conscious, and doesn’t have a son facing prison for a real felony — just one of a long list of crimes which he skated on not only because of his connections to The Big Guy … but the CIA. …

Here Are The 20 Biggest Whoppers Biden Told During His Debate With Trump, by Shawn Fleetwood

By Shawn Fleetwood, The Federalist – President Joe Biden isn’t known for telling the truth. So, it came as no surprise when the Delaware Democrat got up on stage to tell some pretty tall tales during Thursday’s debate with former President Donald Trump… From the crisis he created at the U.S.-Mexico border to manufactured hoaxes about his opponent, there was almost no subject Biden didn’t lie about. Here are the 20 biggest whoppers he told during Thursday night’s matchup with the Orange Man.

Trump vs. Biden: 4 Highlights From the First Presidential Debate, by Mary Margaret Olohan, Tony Kinnett

By Mary Margaret Olohan, Tony Kinnett, The Daily Signal – Here are four of the major highlights of Thursday’s debate… 1. Medicare for Illegal Aliens? … When discussing his economic record, Biden appeared to lose his way, pausing for several seconds, stuttering, and leading to a claim that he “beat Medicare.” … “… Making sure we make every single solitary person eligible for what I’ve been able to do with COVID, excuse me, with umm, dealing with everything we had to deal with. Look, we finally beat Medicare,” the president said… Trump responded: “Well, he’s right. He did beat Medicare. He beat it to death.”

Trump Slams Biden for Supporting Abortions Up to Birth, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – Donald Trump and Joe Biden debated abortion early in Thursday night’s presidential debate… During the debate, Trump said that overturning Roe v. Wade and allowing states to protect babies from abortions was a “great decision.”… “Fifty-one years ago we had Roe v. Wade and everybody wanted to get it back to the states. Everybody. Without exception. Democrats, Republicans, liberals, conservatives, everybody wanted it back. Religious leaders,” he said.

Opinion: Stop the Ukrainian Meatgrinder? by Victor Davis Hanson

By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness – Nearly eleven months ago, in August 2023, the New York Times reported that U.S. officials had estimated that some 500,000 Russians and Ukrainians had been killed, wounded, or missing in the then 18-month Ukrainian War… Both Russia and Ukraine underreport their losses.. In the West, the mere mention of a negotiated settlement is considered a dangerous appeasement of Russia’s flagrant aggression.

Despite Biden Claim, Border Patrol Union Says They ‘Never Have and Never Will Endorse Biden’, by Nick Kangadis

By Nick Kangadis, MRC TV – Continuing our coverage of the first 2024 Presidential Debate, hosted by CNN Thursday evening, President Joe Biden made another claim that has been proven to be false… During debate on the issue of immigration, Biden claimed that the Border Patrol has endorsed him… “We significantly increased the number of asylum officers,” Biden said. “By the way, the Border Patrol endorsed me, endorsed my position.”…Apparently, that is NOT the case.

Supreme Court Appears to Support Biden’s Attempt to Force States to Allow Abortions, by  Steven Ertelt, Josh Mercer 

By  Steven Ertelt, Josh Mercer, LifeNews – On Wednesday, the Supreme Court admitted to mistakenly publishing a document online concerning a pending abortion case. Bloomberg Law obtained the document before it was promptly taken down from the website… According to Supreme Court spokeswoman Patricia McCabe, the document was “inadvertently and briefly uploaded” to the court’s website. McCabe clarified that the ruling itself “has not been released.” …

The Supreme Court Is Not Going To Save You, by John Daniel Davidson

By John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist – The Supreme Court’s 6-3 ruling in Murthy v.

No.

If Julian Assange Is A Criminal, So Is The Entire Corporate Press, by John Daniel Davidson

By John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist – Julian Assange is now a free man, but he should never have been charged with a crime to begin with… As Assange’s years-long ordeal comes to a close, it’s worth noting that what was done to him is criminal — and it poses a very real threat for journalists who dare to question the national security state. Put simply, what Assange did is no different than what The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, and many other corporate media outlets do every day: they publish and report on classified material that was stolen or obtained illegally by sources.

The Logic in All the Madness, by Victor Davis Hanson

By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness – Most Americans believe it is unhinged to deliberately destroy the border and allow 10 million illegal aliens to enter the country without background audits, means of support, any claims to legal residency, and definable skills. And worse still, why would federal authorities be ordered to release repeat violent felons who have gone on to commit horrendous crimes against American citizens?

Why So Much Ado About the Ten Commandments? by John M. Grondelski, Ph.D. 

By John M. Grondelski, Ph.D., Catholic World Report – It’s not just that the Ten Commandments are tainted because of their historical religious origins. They’re even more dangerous because they question the dictatorship of relativism that has increasingly dominated American education… Governor Jeff Landry’s signing of the law requiring Louisiana public school classrooms to display the text of the Ten Commandments once again brings together a volatile combination: religion and schools. It’s already generating a collective meltdown on the Left.

A Historical Precedent for Trump, by Austin Ruse

By Austin Ruse, Crisis Magazine – What will happen to Trump? We shall see. But we should be deeply worried about the coming days, weeks, months, and even years.

If he wins again, there will be widespread violence perpetrated by the Left. They will burn our cities. And you can be sure it will be blamed on Trump.

‘Pride’ Parades Are Nothing But Massive Humiliation Rituals, by Hayden Daniel

The time when, for 30 seemingly never-ending days (of “Pride Month.”), rainbow flags… take over entertainment, corporate logos, and the streets of cities across the country. Not even ruby-red states can escape the influence… The centerpiece of this debauched revelry is the “pride” parade. Now there are so many of these in the U.S. that some outlets feel the need to rank them, and even smaller locales feel the need to host festivities.

Abortion is Immoral Just Like Slavery Was Immoral, by Ben Watson

But the broader fight to defend and secure the dignity of every person remains with us today… Respectively, this should change how we celebrate these two days. Juneteenth and the Dobbs anniversary aren’t merely commemorative. These are reflective yet joyous moments that help us draw strength and resolve for the strenuous days ahead.

Bishop Thomas John Paprocki: Looking at Effective Programs that Address Poverty

By Bishop Thomas John Paprocki, Catholic World Report – (USCCB’s) Executive session supposedly provides a confidential forum for brainstorming and frank discussion of proposals before going into public debate and decision-making. I say “supposedly” because shortly after the “confidential” executive session there was a story in the National Catholic Reporter in which Michael Sean Winters wrote, “Several bishops told me that in the executive session where the CCHD was discussed, the support for the program was overwhelming. Springfield, Illinois, Bsp. Thomas Paprocki intervened to suggest it was time to sunset the program, and his sentiments were echoed by Kansas City, Kansas, Abp. Joseph Naumann.”… It is very disappointing that several bishops apparently lack the integrity of respecting the confidentiality of our executive sessions. It is also sad to say that such bishops cannot be trusted.

By Katrina Trinko, Daily Caller – But Butker isn’t drawing widespread ire because of his lack of nuance. He’s drawing widespread ire because he advocated a viewpoint that goes against our elites’ mentality, because he pushed back against the worldly idea that career success is what matters most, not our relationships and time with our loved ones… He’s drawing hate because, despite women’s happiness declining over the past 50 years, corporate America doesn’t want to hear that many moms would be happier if they could stay at home with their kids, or if their jobs were more accommodating to prioritizing family.

What the Pro-Palestinian Campus Protests are Really About, by Carl R. Trueman

By Carl R. Trueman, First Things – The recent pro-Palestinian student protests on elite university campuses across the country offer fascinating, if somewhat depressing, insights into the state of modern American culture. It is not so much that the lunatics have taken over the asylum as the kindergartners have taken over the nursery… First, society takes the attitudes and antics of the young far too seriously. In an era when we are reliably informed that adolescence persists well into the twenties, it is strange that we deem the views of anyone under the age of thirty to have any real significance or merit. Yet it seems to be an unspoken assumption that young people, especially young, angry, and opinionated people, are to be indulged as important.

Yes, grocery prices are up a lot, but not nearly as much as some people claim, and the big surge is behind us.”… In a typically flippant manner, Krugman then went on to inveigh against “the vehemence — and sheer silliness — of the grocery truthers,” analyzing the cost of goods at Walmart versus official Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness – Tragically for the country, to stop this left-wing madness, the Trump travesties may not be the end, but the beginning of precisely what the Founders feared… Do not believe the White House/mainstream media-concocted narrative that the four criminal court cases—prosecuted by Alvin Bragg, Letitia James, Jack Smith, and Fani Willis—were not in part coordinated, synchronized, and timed to reach their courtroom psychodramatic finales right during the 2024 campaign season.

Speaker Johnson Allies Himself With GOP-Hating Republicans, Democrats, by Jordan Boyd

By Jordan Boyd, The Federalist – Speaker of the House Mike Johnson will travel to Texas this week, not to make another performative visit to the border he abandoned when he banded with Democrats to pass $95 billion in foreign spending, but to aid a fundraiser for his “endangered” GOP colleague (Republican Rep.

The Bomb and the American Barbarian, by Michael Ippolito

By Michael Ippolito, Crisis Magazine – No faithful Catholic could look at the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and be proud of that decision… The dropping of the atomic bomb was evil. For the average conservative commentator, this comment automatically causes a knee-jerk reaction with the same old platitudes. For decades, the American Right has been the defender of our usage of the atomic bomb, with either “it saved more American lives” or “it was the lesser of two evils” being some of the strongest candidates.

Former Fiscal Conservative Mike Johnson Considering Scheme to Expand Earmarks, by Bradley Jaye

By Bradley Jaye, Breitbart – Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) being Johnson’s own pick to chair the powerful appropriations committee, it defies reason that Johnson would appoint Cole without knowing his feelings on earmarks — if Johnson is, in fact, running the show.

Banning political meetings is unconstitutional. Full stop.”… The planned appearance of German Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller at the conference managed to go ahead, though he was reportedly visibly shocked by the police standing a few feet away.

The Political Versus Moral Realities of Abortion, by Auguste Meyrat

By Auguste Meyrat, Crisis Magazine – So how committed to abortion are Americans really?… This seems to be the burning question haunting the minds of pro-lifers right now. If we go by the recent referendums on abortion in reliably red states like Kansas or Ohio, then it seems like a majority of Americans really want the freedom to abort their unborn children. Recent polls in deep-red Florida, which will have the abortion issue on the ballot this November, already favor keeping abortion as an option. ….

The Honest Pro-Abortion Argument, by Emmy Griffin

By Emmy Griffin, Patriot Post – …comedian Bill Maher … went on to say: “I don’t understand the 15-week thing, or the Trump’s plan [sic] is, ‘Let’s leave it to the states.’ You mean, so killing babies is okay in some states? Like, I can respect the absolutist position. I really can. I scold the Left on when they say: ‘Oh, you know what? They just hate women. People who aren’t pro-choice.’ They don’t hate women. [The pro-abortion crowd] just made that up.”… “[Pro-lifers] think it’s murder. And it kind of is. I’m just okay with that. I am. I mean, there’s eight billion people in the world. I’m sorry, we won’t miss you. That’s my position.”

The Devil And Communist China Tries To Prevent Future CCP Victims By Remembering Past Ones, by Chuck DeVore

By Chuck DeVore, The Federalist – ….Steven Mosher builds a compelling case in “The Devil and Communist China”. He convincingly argues that the evil practiced by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) eclipses the evil wrought by the USSR, pointing out in the introduction that, per The Black Book of Communism, China was responsible for 65 million deaths, while the Soviet Union purged 20 million — then noting that China’s numbers don’t include the roughly 500 million unborn killed due to its one-child policy. …

The World Is Paying A Deadly Price For Barack Obama’s Foreign Policy Legacy, by David Harsanyi

By David Harsanyi, The Federalist – If a belligerent state launched 186 explosive drones, 36 cruise missiles, and 110 surface-to-surface missiles from three fronts against civilian targets within the United States, would Joe Biden call it a “win”?… Would the president tell us that the best thing we can do now is show “restraint”? What if that same terror state’s proxy armies had recently helped murder, rape, and kidnap more than 1,000 American men, women, and children? …

By Michael J. Matt, Editor, The Remnant – With pro-life America at a crossroads, Michael J. Matt takes a hard look at Donald Trump’s political maneuvering … Can faithful Christians still vote for Donald Trump, or have we been sidelined and reduced to passive spectators as our country is handed over to the Party of Death?… What’s going on here, and how does this relate to Trump and any other politician who might be tempted to campaign on family and life issues?

Bill Maher Reveals the Grim Truth of What Pro-Abortion Leftists Really Think, by John-Henry, Westen

By John-Henry, Westen, LifeSiteNews – A video of Bill Maher’s recent comments on abortion has gone viral, and it’s fascinating because Maher is honest and tells us what abortion advocates really feel and think… First, he recognizes that “abortion is murder.” Abortion is murder. It is the murder of an innocent human being made in the image and likeness of God.,, Second, he recognizes that the only credible position against abortion is to oppose all abortions. This is because every baby is equally loved by God and of equal value in the sight of God.

Congress Blows It on FISA, by Jed Babbin

By Jed Babbin, American Spectator – In short, Johnson’s bill leaves too much discretion to the FBI and doesn’t include the most critical reform: to get FISA out of politics… it is necessary to prevent FISA — and the FBI and the FISA court, which operates necessarily in secret — from considering surveillance warrants that target federal or statewide incumbent officials and candidates… Unless that is done, the bill fails to accomplish anything that will prevent another abuse like the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation. And it fails in precisely that manner.

Gaming The 2024 Campaign, by Victor Davis Hanson

By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness – Will the left unleash another late-season October surprise like the 2016 Access Hollywood tape or the 2020 “Russian disinformation” laptop farce? And will these desperate gambits resonate or boomerang?… will the candidates in October and November resemble the candidates of today?.. Will Trump still be vibrant at 78? Will Biden still be upright at 81?… Will Biden’s feebleness still earn him sympathy, or at least respectful silence? Or will it devolve to the point that the public, worn out by his lapses, concludes that Joe Biden would not be able to keep any job in America—except the Presidency of the United States?

Pro-Abortion Terrorist Gets Lighter Sentence Than Peaceful Pro-Life Activists

By Matt Kittle, The Federalist – January, six pro-life activists were convicted on charges of violating the federal Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, for blocking the entrance to an abortion facility in Mt.

Why Donald Trump Is So Hated, by Michael Brown

By Michael Brown, The Stream – To his loyal supporters, he is a courageous hero of superhuman proportions. To his fervent detractors, he is the incarnation of evil itself in exaggerated form.
Why does Trump elicit such extreme reactions? More to the point: Why do his detractors hate him so much?… The first and most obvious reason is that Trump has been, at various times, nasty, cruel, crude, and vicious, and his detractors are responding in kind, giving him some of his own medicine.

Trump’s Balk on Abortion Ban Sends Shockwaves Through Pro-Life Movement, by Jonathan Liedl

By Jonathan Liedl, EWTN News – “My view is now that we have abortion where everybody wanted it from a legal standpoint, the states will determine by vote or legislation, or perhaps both, and whatever they decide must be the law of the land, in this case, the law of the state,” Trump said in the video… The presidential candidate added that his position was “all about the will of the people,” and that voters must follow their “heart, or in many cases, your religion or your faith.” Two days later, he told the media that he would not sign a national abortion ban if he retook the White House.

LifeSiteNews: Nations That Embrace Abortion Inevitably Support Euthanasia: Here’s Why

By LifeSiteNews, Staff – Jonathon Van Maren explains why demographic and cultural crises afflicting Western nations are leading to increased support for legal euthanasia… Jonathon bases his observations on a column by British MP Matthew Parris that defends euthanasia. He opines that Parris, despite defending euthanasia, is also being “brutally honest” by facing “head-on” the problems the West faces and the “schizophrenic views” people seem to hold on politics and culture, even if the solution Parris proposes is wrong.

WATCH! Congress Is Lying to You About FISA, by Tucker Carlson 

By Tucker Carlson, Daily Caller – The U.S. House is expected to vote Friday on a two-year extension of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, commonly known as FISA.

European Parliament Votes to Make Killing Babies in Abortions a Fundamental Right, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – The European Parliament voted by a margin of 336-163 for a resolution “on the inclusion of the right to abortion in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.”… “Whilst this is a non-binding resolution, it still places undue pressure on member states such as Poland, Malta, and Slovakia. It would generate significant opposition from millions of EU citizens who fundamentally reject the false premise that abortion should be considered a ‘fundamental right,’” she said.

What Happens in France …. Fr. Matthieu Raffray Being Investigated for Speaking Truth, by Marisa Cantu

By Marisa Cantu, Human Life International – The French government is coming after a Catholic priest for speaking canonical truths. Father Matthieu Raffray from France released a video on Instagram last month. In the video, he encourages watchers to fight against their weaknesses and sinful inclinations. He uses homosexuality as an example among others, saying that same-sex attraction is a weakness that should be fought against, just as with any other sin. He encouraged watchers to not give in to the devil’s lie that the fight against temptation – whatever that temptation may be – is “too hard.”

Bidenomics After 38 Months: Six Charts the Media Don’t Want You to See, by Craig Bannister

By Craig Bannister, MRC TV – Liberal media are declaring Bidenomics a success – but, after more than three years, hard numbers tell a much different story, regardless of whether the measure is how much Americans are paying, earning or saving… gas prices (have) surged 46% in the first 38 months of Pres. Joe Biden’s term… After accounting for inflation, real wages earned by Americans have declined under Biden. …

On Abortion, Donald Trump Goes The Way Of Stephen A. Douglas, by John Daniel Davidson

By John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist – Abortion, like slavery, cannot simply be ‘left to the states,’ as if it’s an ordinary political issue. The republic itself is at stake… Former President Donald Trump declared this week that abortion should be left to the states, that there should be no federal abortion legislation because “this is all about the will of the people,” and “whatever they decide must be the law of the land.”

“Catholic” Joe Biden Is a Product of Church Apathy, by Sarah Cain

By Sarah Cain, Crisis Magazine – Parishes that practice indifference produce Catholics like Joe Biden… When President Joe Biden was asked by EWTN correspondent Owen Jensen what Easter means to him, he responded, “Time for forgiveness and people getting together, and a little bit of love and no phoniness. Be straight with people.”… At first hearing, it might be shocking to hear a self-professed Catholic define Easter without mention of Christ and either His death or Resurrection—with neither suffering nor sin. Yet perhaps it shouldn’t be.

Trump’s Abortion Stance: Half a Loaf or a Poison Pill? by John Zmirak

By John Zmirak, The Stream – What are we to make of Donald Trump’s statement on abortion? In a recent post on Truth Social, he adopted a 100% states-rights approach, opposing any federal legislation to allow or regulate it… Cold hard fact: Any federal legislation that could actually pass would leave unborn babies unprotected all the way through birth — and overturn good state laws like Florida’s. So there’s a sense in which Trump’s stance is the best we can hope for, the least bad outcome considering the GOP’s failure to profit electorally from Joe Biden’s disastrous presidency.

WATCH: The Real Religion of the Left, by Kyle Seraphin

By Kyle Seraphin, Edify – Progressive leftism demands the separation of church and state, but its tenets directly imitate organized religion. Former FBI agent and whistleblower, Kyle Seraphin, breaks down what the left really worships in this video.

Donald Trump Opposes Arizona Supreme Court Ruling Protecting Babies From Abortion, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – … the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that the state can enforce its abortion ban and protect babies from abortions. The Arizona Supreme Court ruled Tuesday to uphold the state’s pro-life law as written by overturning a lower court decision that misinterpreted the law… Asked if the state’s highest court “went too far” in the ruling, Trump replied: “Yes they did. And that will be straightened out.”… “And, as you know, it’s all about state’s rights and it will be straightened out,” Trump said. “And I’m sure the governor and everybody else have got to bring it back into reason and that it will be taken care of I think.” …

Arizona Supreme Court Rules State Can Enforce Abortion Ban, Protect Babies From Abortions, by Steven Ertelt 

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – In a huge pro-life victory, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that the state can enforce its abortion ban and protect babies from abortions… Planned Parenthood was challenging the potential reinstatement of the state’s near-total abortion ban from 1864, which has exceptions for life-threatening emergencies, but had been blocked by 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. The Dobbs ruling should allow it to go into effect but the nation’s biggest abortion business challenged it. …

Days of Observance Among People Made in the Image of God, by Jim Kenaston

By Jim Kenaston, The Stream – Despite all the uproar over the White House’s official proclamation of “Transgender Day of Visibility” being observed on Easter Sunday this year, it turns out it’s just one of 47 commemoration days or weeks that the LGBTQ+ community has sprinkled throughout the year — not including the entire month of June, which has been proclaimed “Pride Month.” Until last week, I was unaware that in 2009 an activist had declared March 31 to be “Transgender Day of Visibility.”

Democrats’ Systemic Normalization Of Property Theft Birthed America’s Squatter Crisis, by Helen Raleigh

By Helen Raleigh, CFA, The Federalist – Squatting is a form of trespassing as squatters use properties without the owners’ permission or any legal documentation. Nor do squatters offer property owners financial compensation. Atlanta, Georgia, is the epicenter of the squatter crisis. Squatters have overtaken about 1,200 homes… One of the victimized homeowners, Lt. Col. Dahlia Daure, said she felt “violated” after learning that a squatter with a lengthy criminal history lived in her home rent-free with a fake lease while she was away on active duty. In Dallas, Texas, squatters have occupied an estimated 475 homes. ….

Dis-Organized Medicine, by James O. Breen, M.D.

By James O. Breen, M.D., Crisis Magazine – “I haven’t taken seriously anything the mainstream medical organizations have said for several years,” Tom declared with a tone of bitterness. “So many of their viewpoints on social issues are antithetical to why I became a doctor. They’ve ruined medicine by politicizing everything.”… Tom and I also have in common extensive careers in graduate medical education; he chose to leave academic medicine some years ago in no small part because of the disillusionment he described. …

Disparate Impact Is Wrecking Us, by Douglas Andrews

By Douglas Andrews, Patriot Post – In a scathing essay on the effects of racial excuse-making on public policy, Heather Mac Donald pulls no punches… Does counting by race make a nation stronger or weaker? More talented or less talented? More competitive or less competitive?… Put another way, would the just-concluded NCAA men’s basketball tournament have put out a better product if it enforced a strict limit of 13% of its players being black? That, after all, is the percentage of the American people who are black. What about the NFL?

Creative 303 Redux: Another Win for Religious Freedom, by Charles J. Russo

By Charles J. Russo, Catholic World Report – On June 30, 2023, in 303 Creative v. Elenis, a major win for free speech, the Supreme Court reasoned that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission could not enforce the state’s Anti-Discrimination Act to compel a wedding website designer, Lorie Smith, to provide her professional services to individuals formalizing their same-sex relationship. Smith declined the opportunity to work with the couple because of her religious belief “that marriage should be reserved to unions between one man and one woman” and “will not produce content that ‘contradicts biblical truth.’”

Trump’s Mixed Messaging On Abortion And IVF Plays Right Into Democrats’ Electoral Strategy, by Jordan Boyd

By Jordan Boyd, The Federalist – Former President Donald Trump has a history of criticizing heartbeat bills when they come from his political rivals, misrepresenting the Supreme Court’s landmark Dobbs v. Jackson decision, and wrongfully blaming Republicans’ 2022 midterm losses on their unapologetically pro-life positions. His recent declaration on “abortion rights” only further confirms that his once-celebrated pro-life track record doesn’t meet voters’ demands of a Republican president.

EXCLUSIVE: Catholic Investigative Reporter Explains Why He’s Exposing Freemasonry, Bohemian Grove, by Stephen Kokx

By Stephen Kokx, LifeSiteNews – Clifton, who goes by “Kyle Undercover,” has built a reputation as a truth-telling zealot willing to risk his safety to expose evil. A devout Traditional Catholic who admits he is likely on the FBI’s radar, his new target is the shadowy Bohemian Grove group in northern California… “I would like for this club to be ended once and for all,” he explained to LifeSite via email. “I would encourage other members, especially those that are Catholic and are part of this club, to come clean and admit that it is wrong and release more footage or information about it.”

Evangelical America and IVF, by Sarah Stula

By Sarah Stula, First Things – The evangelical community’s response to the Alabama ruling has been confusing, proclaiming that life begins at conception on the one hand and fighting the ruling on the other. But how can one justify the protection of the unborn at conception inside the womb but the destruction of that same embryo outside the womb? Isn’t an embryo outside the womb more vulnerable than one safe inside her mother? Is an embryo less human outside the womb than when, seconds later, a doctor delivers her into the womb? It makes no sense.

U.S. Bishop Slams Joe Biden’s ‘Offensive’ Coopting of Easter for Transgender Day, by Thomas D. Williams

By Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D., Breitbart – Arlington Bishop Michael Burbidge said Thursday that President Joe Biden showed a lack of integrity by proclaiming on Good Friday that March 31, 2024 — which was Easter Sunday — was Transgender Day of Visibility… If you’re for the Lord then you’re all in and that means following his gospel and embracing the gospel of life,” the bishop said. “You can’t pick and choose. And that’s not just for the president, that’s for all of us …

Biden on Track to Confirm More Judges Than Trump, He Must be Defeated to Save the Judiciary, by Fred Lucas

By Fred Lucas, LifeNews – Joe Biden is on track to match and possibly surpass his predecessor in successfully appointing lower court judges… Biden announced his 47th round of nominees for vacancies on federal district and appeals courts in late March, bringing his total nominations to 229. That’s just 10 fewer nominees than Donald Trump had at this point in his presidency in the spring of 2020… Biden’s latest nominees include Kevin G. Ritz to be a judge on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals as well as four choices for District Court vacancies.

D.C. Jury Convicts Great-Grandma For Walking Around The Capitol For 10 Minutes On Jan. 6, by Brianna Lyman

By Brianna Lyman, The Federalist – After being strung up on charges by President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ), a 71-year-old great-grandmother may be thrown in jail because she walked around the Capitol for a few minutes on Jan. 6, 2021… Rebecca Lavrenz was convicted on four counts Thursday after just three days of jury deliberation for entering the Capitol on J6.

Climate Disasters Aren’t Caused by Warming or Cooling – But by Equator and Poles, Climatologist Explains, by Craig Bannister

By Craig Bannister, CNS News – The amount of carbon dioxide in the air has an insignificant influence on temperature – and is not the real driver of extreme weather – Climatologist David Legates explained Wednesday… “Carbon Dioxide isn’t a magic climate control knob;” it’s just “a bit player,” Legates said in an interview with The Daily Signal. At its current level – even if the amount of carbon dioxide doubled – it would cause “maybe, a degree Celsius of warming and that would be it,” Legates noted. “And, certainly, it’s not worth the economic impacts.”

Biden the Apostate, by Michael Ippolito

By Michael Ippolito, Crisis Magazine – Cardinal Wilton Gregory calls President Biden a ‘Cafeteria Catholic’, but will he actually deny him Holy Communion?… St. Augustine once commented on the distinction between the heavenly city and the Earthly city, writing, “Two cities have been formed by two loves: the earthly by the love of self, even to the contempt of God; and the heavenly by the love of God, even to the contempt of self. The former, in a word, glories in itself, the latter in the Lord. For the one seeks glory from men; but the greatest glory of the other is God, the witness of our conscience.”

The Ruth Institute: A New Holiday That’s Not Demonic: Adult Appreciation Week

By The Ruth Institute, The Stream – Maybe the White House should try promoting this celebration… In light of the White House urging all Americans to celebrate its third annual Transgender Day of Visibility, the Ruth Institute has discerned the need for Adult Appreciation Week, set to take place April 3-9… “’Transgender’ people are not the only ones who need and deserve ‘visibility,’” said President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse… Therefore, the group will officially honor adults who …..

Trumpite Evangelicalism or Bidenist Catholicism? by Carl R. Trueman

By Carl R. Trueman, First Things – Cultural times are hard for traditional Christians. American evangelicalism has proved a fruitful target for those both outside and inside the church who want to stir up popular panic about Christian nationalism, racism, homophobia, and all the other ill-defined but nonetheless mortal sins of our day. Evangelicalism is presented as the root of all contemporary evils. Donald Trump’s recent hawking of a Bible bound together with America’s founding documents simply adds fuel to this fire. But in a week where it seemed that Trump’s would be the most blasphemous action of a leading politician, President Biden outdid him at the last minute ….

How the Transgender Movement Fuels Conspiracy Theories, by Jonathon Van Maren

By Jonathon Van Maren, The European Conservative – No conspiracy theory is as far-fetched as the idea that there are 72 genders… Ask anyone in your life to define a ‘conspiracy theory,’ and you’ll likely get a different answer. From elections to vaccines, from the ‘deep state’ to Ukraine, there is only one thing that most people now agree on: that establishment narratives are false. There are a range of key contributing factors to this—the internet and social media, the collapse of trust in institutions, increasing polarization, and much more. But one prominent issue that has proven to be a catalyst for all these trends has been largely ignored: the rise of the transgender movement.

The Decline Of Christianity Means The End Of Neutral Spaces, by John Daniel Davidson

By John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist – President’s Biden’s decision to elevate Transgender Day of Visibility on Easter, the holiest day of the Christian calendar, was no accident. Yes, we all know (now) that it falls on March 31 every year, while the date of Easter obviously varies. But the idea that the White House’s promotion of the transgender agenda on Easter was a mere coincidence, as Biden’s press secretary insisted on Monday, strains credulity. We all know it was no coincidence.

French Government Cracks Down on Priest Who Said Homosexual Relations Are Sinful, by Walter Sánchez Silva

By Walter Sánchez Silva for Catholic News Agency – The French government has initiated a series of legal measures against Father Matthieu Raffray for calling homosexual relations sinful and for describing homosexuality as a “weakness.”… On March 15, the priest of the Institute of the Good Shepherd — created in 2006 in Rome for “the defense and dissemination of Catholic Tradition in all its forms,” according to the website of this society of apostolic life — posted a video on Instagram in which he encouraged the faithful to fight against their weaknesses.

Belief That Gov’t Is a Threat to Religious Rights Surges Under Biden, Surpassing Obama Era, by Craig Bannister

By Craig Bannister, CNS News – The belief that the federal government is a threat to Americans’ religious rights has surged under Pres. Biden, beyond that of both the Trump and Obama presidencies, a new national survey reveals… Today, more than twice as many voters consider the federal government a “threat,” instead of a “protector,” of religious rights (56% vs. 26%), the survey finds. The remaining 17% say they’re not sure… The Biden Administration has been increasingly prompting concern regarding religious freedom, particularly within the Christian community.

As Christianity Declines, We Must Confront The Threat Of Pagan America, by Casey Chalk

By Casey Chalk, The Federalist – What’s a Christian to Do?.. For now, the persecution of Christians in America has largely been restricted to ostracism and censorship. Davidson projects that to change, “through mandatory reeducation, the loss of parental rights, fines and financial penalties, and even imprisonment.” Indeed, there are already signs of this, including government persecution of Christian businesses, leveraging laws to shutter Christian foster care services, FBI targeting of pro-life activists, and federal collaboration with social media companies to restrict freedom of speech. In light of these trends, Christians must gird themselves for a “long persecution and a long fight.” …

Is the Republican Base Ready to Compromise on Abortion? by Nicole Russell

By Nicole Russell, Human Events – President Trump is the de facto GOP nominee. While pro-life, he supports a 16-week ban, not the usual six-week ban many pro-lifers do. Trump’s position may be attractive to some Independents and maybe even Democrats who see it as a reasonable and tenable compromise. However, it could endanger his base’s support, since they tend to favor more conservative positions. How will Trump’s abortion position affect his ardently evangelical base? ….

Trump: Election Day Will Be ‘Christian Visibility Day’

By Paul Bois, Breitbart – Former President Donald Trump declared that the November election will be “Christian Visibility Day” in opposition to President Joe Biden’s declaration of “Transgender Day of Visibility” on March 31, which coincided with Easter Sunday this year… “Election Day, November 5th, will be the most important day in the History of our Country. It will also be Christian Visibility Day, the biggest turnout of Christians in the history of our Country!” the former president declared on his Truth Social account.

Mike Johnson And Trump Can Cut The Bait-And-Switch ‘Loan For Ukraine’ Talk, by Eddie Scarry

By Eddie Scarry, The Federalist – If Republicans are dead-set on sending billions more taxpayer dollars to Ukraine, prolonging a devastating war that is certain to end with Russia securing at least some land, they can at least do us all the courtesy of being honest. Instead, they’re trying to con everyone by selling the overseas welfare as a “loan”…. It’s offensive enough that both Democrats and Republicans insist that throwing fistfuls of cash at a conflict 5,000 miles away is exponentially more important than shutting down the hordes of destitute migrants shoving their way across the southern border.

‘Protect the Vulnerable’: Why Trump Must Win in 2024, by Jason Jones

By Jason Jones, Crisis Magazine – Laymen have a duty to take the lead in Christianizing the world around us in everything we do, working always toward a humane culture that is hospitable to our fellowmen. Taking our cues from the timeless teachings of the Church, we should robustly debate how best to apply them in business, politics, art, and activism…. When bishops throw the full weight of their moral authority around, recklessly applying it to prudential policy questions, they discourage us from fulfilling our duty as laypeople to engage in the kind of reasoned, respectful debate that is so needed today.

Al’s Afternoon Tea: Archbishop Vigano Blasts Biden Trans Proclamation, Truth Blasts Narrative Over Teen’s Tragic Death, by Al Perrotta

By Al Perrotta, The Stream – What used to be satire is now premonition… Archbishop Vigano Shreds Biden for “Transgender Day of Visibility”… Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano took Joe Biden to the woodshed for issuing that proclamation celebrating “Transgender Day of Visibility” on Easter.

Biden’s Anti-Christian Easter Stunt Leaves No Doubt About Democrats’ Descent Into Paganism, by Shawn Fleetwood

By Shawn Fleetwood, The Federalist – While millions of Christians throughout the world celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ this weekend, the Biden administration was busy hawking the demonic ideology of transgenderism… On Good Friday, President Joe Biden, who claims to be a “devout Catholic,” issued a proclamation declaring March 31, 2024 — the same day as Easter Sunday — to be the “Transgender Day of Visibility.” Because, as everyone knows, we don’t have enough faux holidays commemorating the rainbow mob, right?

38 Chaplains Ask Supreme Court To Stop U.S. Military From Punishing Their Faith, by Joy Pullmann

By Joy Pullmann, The Federalist – A healthy little Dutch girl without a proper name died 52 years ago. Scientists keep her kidney’s cells multiplying in a process similar to cancer.

Her vivisection forms “the backbone of the global gene therapy market.”… Scientists call the baby girl HEK 293. HEK stands for “human embryonic kidney,” and 293 means she was the 293rd experiment in a set.

On Easter Sunday, Jesus Weeps for our Nation

By Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, Twitter – The word Apocalipse, in Greek, means unveiling, revelation. This revelation, in Sacred Scripture, concerns first and foremost the objective reality of Good and Evil, that is, the collective awareness of the ongoing war between God and Satan, between the children of Light and the children of darkness… The unprecedented and scandalous proclamation of March 31 as “Transgender Visibility Day” by self-styled U.S. President Joe Biden — who dares to declare himself a Catholic — constitutes a most serious offense to God and to millions of Catholics and Christians in America and around the world, before which it is impossible not to react with due firmness. …

America’s Stunning Embrace Of Paganism Signals The End Of This Country As We Know It, by John Daniel Davidson

By John Daniel Davidson, The Federalist – The future of the post-Christian West isn’t some secular liberal utopia, it’s a pagan empire in which might makes right… Our cultural and political elite now insist that men can become women, and vice versa, and that even children can consent to what they euphemistically call “gender-affirming care.” In a perfect inversion of reason and common sense, some Democratic lawmakers now want laws on the books forcing parents to affirm their child’s “gender identity” on the pain of having the child taken from them by the state for abuse.

Thus Far, Trump Has Huge Coattails. The Best Coattails. by Bradley Devlin (3.21.2024)

By Bradley Devlin, The American Conservative – President Donald Trump’s victories in last night’s primaries in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, and Ohio were foregone conclusions.

AMLO (Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador): Here Are Mexico’s Demands, by Michael Swartz

By Michael Swartz, Patriot Post – The message being delivered by the Mexican president to the American one has been none too subtle: Pay up or else… To you, our readers, who haven’t been under a rock for the last four years, it’s well known that we have a southern border in name only. Obviously, it was one of the priorities of Joe Biden’s Democrat handlers to open up the border and bring in just as many prospective Democrat voters as they possibly could under the guise of “asylum.” …

Transgender ‘Treatments’ for Children One of the ‘Greatest Ethical Scandals in Medical History’, French Report States, by Kurt Zindulka

By Kurt Zindulka, Breitbart – The practice of sexually ‘transitioning’ children will be remembered as one of the “greatest ethical scandals in the history of medicine,” a report commissioned by French senators stated… (the report) found that the medical industry embarked upon the practice of giving children life-altering transgender treatments with little evidence of its effectiveness while ignoring the side effects… The report found that while parents were often pressured by doctors to put their children on puberty-blocking drugs to prevent suicide, there is little proof that this course of action has any better outcomes for the child.

By John Klar, The Federalist – Joe Biden and his EPA’s push for electric heat pumps will be an even bigger fail than their push for electric vehicles… Although Biden’s various electric vehicle (EV) mandates and subsidies tend to get more press than his other half-brained attempts to reduce carbon dioxide, the administration’s push for electric heat pumps could prove to be even more of a disaster.

A Rubber Chicken at a Gunfight, the Shrinking, Rudderless House GOP Funds Deep State, Gets Nothing in Return, by John Zmirak

By John Zmirak, The Stream – House Speaker Mike Johnson did not invoke the old “Hastert Rule,” which would have insisted on support from a “majority of the majority” for the bill to pass. So the massive federal agencies that is targeting pro-life parents and Latin Mass Catholics while leaving our borders unguarded will get their next truckload of money borrowed from China, which our grandchildren will have to repay.

Fr. Celatus: Good Friday Gaslighting

By Fr. Celatus, Remnant Columnist, The Remnant – But before all the glory of its ultimate success and triumph, this film had its own passion to suffer and overcome at the hands of its enemies. These enemies included powerful Deep State and Deep Synagogue forces, representing the entertainment industry and media, as well as the Deep Church. Not only did the US Catholic Conference of Bishops refuse to support the film, but the USCCB issued this condemnation: It [the film script] is one of the most troublesome texts, relative to anti-Semitic potential, that any of us had seen in 25 years. It must be emphasized that the main storyline presented Jesus as having been relentlessly pursued by an evil cabal of Jews, headed by the high priest Caiaphas, who finally blackmailed a weak-kneed Pilate into putting Jesus to death. ….

Big Pharma Is More Woke Than You Imagine, by Paul Bradford

By Paul Bradford, American Greatness – Big Pharma is not your friend. Whether it’s hiking up drug prices or bribing the Swamp, the pharmaceutical industry works against the people’s interests. Many Americans are aware of Big Pharma’s greed and the power it wields over Washington, D.C., but fewer are aware of just how left-wing the industry is. It serves as a cash cow for the left and pushes woke ideas on its employees and the country at large. This may explain why Democrats, who act like they hate Big Pharma, serve the industry’s interests. …

New York Doomed to Be Migrant Central — Other Cities Take Note, by Betsy McCaughey

By Betsy McCaughey, The Stream – Mayor Eric Adams’ agreement, announced Friday, to limit the time migrants can stay in shelters at taxpayers’ expense, is smoke and mirrors. It’s designed to fool you into thinking he’s solving a problem when he’s actually caving to the migrant industrial complex… Adams claims the agreement, with the Legal Aid Society and the Coalition for the Homeless, will allow the city to evict adult migrants from city-run shelters after 30 days, saving taxpayers money and limiting the need for more shelters. Not true.

Everything Senate Democrats Lied About During Their IVF And Abortion-For-All Hearing, by Jordan Boyd

The Brew: Cartels Use Kids as Pawns While Biden Naps and Bishops Cash the Checks, by John Zmirak

By John Zmirak, The Stream – The Stream has reported frequently on how religious charities, especially those controlled by Catholic bishops, profit from each illegal immigrant they help coyotes and human traffickers smuggle into our country. They do this while moralistically preening about how they “welcome the stranger.” Maybe such Christian leaders ought to read this heartbreaking essay from The Federalist about how little brown kids are used as cheap, disposable pawns in the immigration game, objectified as “golden tickets” into the States. …

Trump Signals Support for 15-week National Abortion Ban

Posted on Newsmax, by Thomson/Reuters – Former President Donald Trump said he was leaning toward a 15-week national ban on abortion, but supports exceptions for rape, incest and saving the life of the mother because “you have to win elections.”… Abortion promises to be a galvanizing issue for some voters in the 2024 presidential election in which Trump will try to unseat Democrat President Joe Biden… A call for a 15-week national ban is likely to displease both sides of the abortion debate ….

COMMENTARY: Biden’s Open Border Policy Fuels Violence Against Women, Children, by Kevin D. Roberts

By Kevin D. Roberts, PhD, President, Heritage Foundation – Democrats, and their hype men in the corporate media, defend President Joe Biden’s criminal refusal to secure America’s southern border as chic, compassionate and welcoming… But in truth, the border crisis is a cauldron of violence against women and children, the responsibility for which lies directly at the feet of the president, his administration and the woke elites who have enabled his monstrous policy.

Biden and Bergoglio, by William Kilpatrick

By William Kilpatrick, Turning Point – Many commentators have noted that there are a remarkable number of similarities between President Joe Biden and Pope Francis… A partial list would include the fact that one man is the leader of the Western World, and the other is generally conceded to be the world’s most important spiritual leader. Significantly, both men set about reversing the policies of their predecessors upon assuming office. Both men are, of course, Catholics. And beyond that, both adhere to a “progressive” version of Catholicism. …

The Christian Canary Dying in the Coal Mine That Is India, by Jason Scott Jones

By Jason Scott Jones, The Stream – The Indian church has two open secrets. Most Westerners, already discombobulated by the enigma of India, are puzzled even further when they learn the content of these secrets… Secret No. 1: the Indian church is a first-century apostolic church, independent of Rome.

The Blood-Thirsty Democrats, by Regis Martin

By Regis Martin, Crisis Magazine – Vice President Kamala Harris’s recent visit to an abortion clinic highlights how much the Democratic Party has embraced child-killing… It wasn’t until 2019, while running for president of the United States, that Joe Biden decided it was no longer expedient to support the Hyde Amendment, which for forty-plus years had not only saved countless children from abortion but had spared taxpayers from having to pay for it all. At the time, he had been one of only a few remaining Democratic politicians determined to hold the line.

Midway in the Culture War, by Lou Aguilar

By Lou Aguilar, American Spectator -But the biggest blast took place across the Pond in the socialist-sinking United Kingdom. Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) just stopped prescribing puberty blockers for children. For the left-compromised ministry to basically acknowledge the irreparable damage these treatments can do to kids should start a chain reaction of sanity around the world. Even the usually reserved Times of London called the practice “quack medicine,” urging that it be “reined in entirely.”

Guilty!—But Not Really Guilty? by Victor Davis Hanson

By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness – Our criminal justice system no longer treats the accused equally under the law. If the defendant is deemed a conservative, like a Michael Flynn, Peter Navarro, or Donald Trump, then the full force of prosecution falls upon them… But if a Biden, Brennan, Clapper, Clinton, Holder, or Willis, then the state contorts itself to find excuses, exemptions, and mitigating circumstances not to pursue justice… In these high-profile cases in this polarized era, a cynical public now expects any accused prominent leftist to remain unindicted ….

By Brianna Lyman, The Federalist – Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee found District Attorney Fani Willis potentially lied, cast “racial aspersions” on a defendant, and had a “tremendous lapse in judgement,” but could nonetheless continue her crusade targeting a former president — so long as special prosecutor Nathan Wade withdraws from the case… McAfee issued a decision Friday saying the defendants “failed to meet their burden of proving that the District Attorney acquired an actual conflict of interest in this case.”

Political Grandstanding on IVF Ignores Its Abuse of Human Dignity, by Michael Warsaw

By Michael Warsaw, Publisher’s Note, EWTN News – But there is a bigger issue at stake than winning elections or steering clear of the cancel culture: the truth… That truth begins with basic science. Whether the embryo is created through natural procreation or when sperm and egg are joined in a petri dish, it is a human being in the earliest of stages. This isn’t a religious doctrine or a conservative court’s opinion. It’s a biological fact, one that wouldn’t change even if 100% of Americans said otherwise.

The decisions made news not just for the result and the date it was issued, but for the importance Doughty showed to the underlying issue… In fact, Doughty’s opinion echoed the lofty rhetoric of the great federal court decisions issued during the civil rights era. But the political dynamic had flipped.

Say the Word, Mr. President, and Tell the Truth About Abortion, by Susan Ciancio

By Susan Ciancio, Catholic World Report – Euphemisms are often used in polite society to make distasteful words more palatable. But sometimes they are spoken to hide the truth. Nowhere was this more evident than in President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address on March 7th, when he refused to say the word “abortion” and instead repeatedly referred to it as “reproductive freedom”… Biden, who claims to be “a practicing Catholic” who is “not big on abortion”, spent just a handful of minutes discussing abortion. Yet his words were carefully crafted to not only incite anger but to make it seem like those who oppose abortion have waged a war against women.
