Killing Pain That Lingers

 

Friday This has been an eventful week. As I might have mentioned, I’ve had terrible pain in my right knee for months. I mean EXCRUCIATING pain when I go up and down stairs. After much delay, I dragged my bad self to an orthopedic medical group in Santa Monica with my pal Judah driving. There […]

The Pope At a Loss for Words

 

Washington Back in late August, Pope Francis declared that he would “not say a word” about a letter from a former Vatican envoy to Washington who claimed among other things that the Pope had ignored sexual abuse charges made against Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, formerly archbishop of Washington. The letter was written by Archbishop Carlo Maria […]

Pope Francis, Cardinal Wuerl, and the Communist Chinese

 

What do the Communist Chinese have to do with this event? I’ll get to that later. But first the news is not that Pope Francis accepted Cardinal Wuerl’s resignation as Archbishop of Washington. The news is: Pope Francis dithered over accepting it since Wuerl had submitted his resignation as a matter of course three years […]

The Fall of the Gay Mafia’s Don

 

Some of Donald Wuerl’s priests called him the “Tin Man,” a reference to his cold, heartless style as the archbishop of Washington, D.C., a position from which he has now formally resigned, though outrageously Pope Francis is permitting him to continue as an “apostolic administrator” until his successor arrives. It is hilarious that Wuerl became […]

Bishop Michael Bransfield, who is under investigation for predatory gay […]

What Will the Democrats Do Next Time?

 

By the thinnest of margins, Brett Kavanaugh survived the Democrats’ smear machine to become the newest Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. For the first time since the 1930s, there is now in place a solid majority on the Court that will interpret the Constitution as written and refrain from legislating from the […]

Austria Ignores Threat of Iranian Islamism

 

In June 2018, the Austrian government announced it would shut down seven mosques and expel sixty imams, because of their putative links to Salafi-jihadists or Turkish regime networks. The government’s decision was made in the wake of a 2015 law that banned foreign funding of religious institutions and required Muslim organizations to express a “positive approach towards the […]

Archbishop Justin Welby: Amazon Warrior

 

Amazon recently announced that it is raising the wage of its lowest-paid U.S. workers to $15 an hour, and above the proposed “real living wage” in the UK. Jeff Bezos also plans to lobby Congress to raise the minimum wage. This is bad news, not merely for his less prosperous competitors and most vulnerable workers, but […]

Moving the Goal Posts

 

The point to bear in mind is that the Democrats are out to defeat the Kavanaugh nomination by any means. Fair they’ve tried, in a constitutional way — hearings, speeches, statements, votes. Foul is what they currently have in mind: vilification and ruinous delay furthered by the moving of goal posts. The goal post placement, […]
