DR PAUL KENGOR: GEORGE H. W. BUSH AND THE CALL THAT SURRENDERED THE SOVIET UNION

This week, many tributes and praises have been spoken about President George H.W. Bush. Not to be missed is the fact that Bush was one of the unsung heroes of the end of the Cold War.  In this article that first appeared at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Dr. Paul Kengor recounts a discussion about President Bush with a reporter from the Russian newspaper Pravda.

SELWYN DUKE: CONNEDSERVATIVE CURES: FOR THE WEST TO LIVE, “EQUALITY” MUST DIE”

Exalting equality is another example of conservatives conserving yesterday’s liberals’ liberalism, playing the caboose to their engine of entropic end-times change. But what once was “progressives’” mistake is now ours, and, if the West is to survive, we must stop preventing that mistake from being corrected.

CHARLES G. MILLS: THE DEFAMATION OF SENATOR HYDE-SMITH

a flagrant lie. At an event earlier in November, she had made a statement about being willing to sit in the front row at a public hanging.

The press did not say that she meant this statement literally. That would have been too implausible. Instead, it invented the lie that a “public hanging” means a lynching. I find the idea of a front row seat at a lynching extraordinary. I am not sure whether Northern reporters believe that the Ku Klux Klan rents local high school auditoriums for its lynchings or that it sets up a few dozen folding chairs before lynching anyone.

DENNIS PATRICK: FOLLOWING THE GO FUND ME MONEY

  “Left-wing groups funded by George Soros and other major Democratic donors hand out cash to protester arrested for disrupting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings….A coalition of activist organizations including [CPD]…have scheduled the near-constant disruptions…as part of an effort to derail the confirmation process.” Protestor funding comes through crowdfunding accounts. The Daily Caller, 9/18/18.

Interestingly, the same people have been running and funding other far left organizations for years. It is their occupation; it is their means of support. Search for, or Google, Ady Barkan, Ana Maria Archila, Maria Gallagher, and David Hogg’s to see the parade of their crowdfunding activities.

Crowdfunding has been a wonderful innovation benefitting great causes. But, like so many other good things, it also attracts the hideous and the thugs.

REJECT EUGENICS: BRIEF AGAINST PLANNED PARENTHOOD
Washington, D.C. -- In keeping with our mission of protecting the rights of all Americans, from conception to natural death, the Fitzgerald Griffin Foundation has filed an Amicus Curiae brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Commissioner of the Indiana State Department of Health, et al v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, et al.

 

 

The amicus brief addresses the following argument:

 
"Whether a State may prohibit abortions motivated solely by the race, sex, or disability of the fetus -- and require abortion doctors to inform patients of the prohibition."

LYNN BERGMAN: MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

After retiring from engineering work, I needed to work with my hands. Carpentry came easy and building small structures is as rewarding as it gets for me. My latest project has consumed me for the past three summers… the construction of a 21' by 31' boathouse with a 9' ceiling and an “attic room” built into the roof trusses. On over a dozen occasions during those three summers I faced the amazing realization that I had in my possession the exact amount of nails, screws, or other fasteners required to complete the several phases of construction. Rather than mere coincidences, these tiny “miracles” were Jesus' way of reminding me that He too was a carpenter and was pointedly and incrementally blessing my work!  So after the second of these “miracles”, I tuned into a local Catholic radio station and, at 2 PM each day, listened to a beautiful piece of music called the “chaplet of the divine mercy” that brought me to my knees in thanks to God for a safe day of work. An important secondary benefit was an extended physical and spiritual rest period of from ten to fifteen minutes.

In the Autumn of life, the music that I took for granted in grade school is now cherished; when I have the opportunity to hear very young children sing “Jesus Loves Me”, “Silent Night”, or other songs that reveal their preciousness, the tears flow as easily as when wonderful symphony strings rip my heart out of my chest. From the love of Christ Jesus and the knowledge that His love can easily be spread to those around us if we just become the conduit, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

DENNIS PATRICK: GIVE THE GIFT OF A BOOK

“I cannot see that lectures can do so much good as reading the books from which they were taken.” So said Samuel Johnson, compiler of the 1755 “Dictionary of the English Language,” the first of its kind.

Christmas, or the Mass of Christ, ‘tis the season for giving! What better way to say “I love you” than with the gift of a book? The recipients’ only prerequisite is an intellect imbued with curiosity.

The following suggestions from favorite books and DVDs in my library are meant to be edifying, revealing, and instructive; not light, inconsequential, or superficial. Readers do not share the same tastes and space limits detailed descriptions of selections. However, reviews are always available on-line.

BRUCE WALKER: ARTICLE 1 SECTION 5 CLAUSE 1

As Democrats prepare to steal Senate seats won by Republicans in the midterm elections it is time for Republicans to use what Democrats have used in House and Senate elections during the last five decades:  Article I Section 5 Clause 1 of the Constitution which states that:  

“Each House [of Congress] shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members, and a Majority of each shall constitute a Quorum to do Business; but a smaller Number may adjourn from day to day, and may be authorized to compel the Attendance of absent Members, in such Manner, and under such Penalties as each House may provide.”

DR. PAUL KENGOR: TEACHING GOD AT THANKSGIVING

Yesterday, the nation celebrated Thanksgiving with parades, food, football, family, and even some shopping. But what was missing? In this article, Dr. Paul Kengor observes that in many areas of the holiday—including books and school lessons for children—a very important part was missing: God.

SELWYN DUKE:  AMERICAN’T: FROM MIDTERMS TO END TIMES

Ever since the nation-rending Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 took effect in ’68, 85 to 90 percent of our immigrants have been Third Worlders, and 70 to 90 percent of them support Democrats upon naturalization.

This has caused a historic demographic shift (and attendant electoral one) that has seen our nation go from 85-plus percent white in 1965 to only 61 percent non-Hispanic white today. Let’s define further the political impact, using conservative figures.

My wife broke the silence first. “What am I thankful for? I’ll tell you what I am thankful for,” she exclaimed. “I’m sure thankful I went to school fifty years ago. At least I received a reasonably accurate account of the Thanksgiving story unvarnished before the political correctness and identity politics hogwash took hold.”

The internal survey, Ekot also noted, shows in addition that a majority of the employees of the Gender Equality Authority suffer from sleep problems and “risk fatigue”.

Among other things, the women-dominated workplace is characterized by bullying and harassment, according to the survey.

DENNIS PATRICK: ABOLISH ICE? NO DICE!

Of all the federal law enforcement agencies, ICE headed the news cycle over the past year leading up to the 2018 midterm elections. Border security was a major issue on the minds of voters. Sadly, ICE was the whipping boy of the left. The Passing Scene takes this opportunity to address falsehoods, fibs, and outright lies promulgated by the left.

As the dust settles around the 2018 midterm elections, a nagging question remains. Under the new Congress, will America be any safer with updated immigration laws and enhanced law enforcement? Don’t hold your breath. This is not on the agenda of the cop-hating left.

GABRIELLE ETZEL: HOLIDAYS AND POLITICS - REBUILDING CIVILITY

Are political divisions eroding the important social institutions which hold society together: Family, friends, and community organizations? Will holiday gatherings be filled with uncomfortable conversations about the 2018 midterm elections? In this article, Gabrielle Etzel discusses the need for civility in American political discourse—even at the Thanksgiving table. She writes, “Engaging in a respectful dialogue and learning from the perspectives of others just as much as sharing your own is a way to strengthen a relationship and to foster a mutual understanding.”

DENNIS PATRICK: CIVILITY GONE MISSING

Lack of civility in society is nothing new. George Washington, known for generations as the Father of Our Country, is regarded uncivilly in contemporary leftist thinking as little more than a sorry, old, white guy who should be ignored. Leftists generally believe the United States was illegitimately founded, especially leftists in academia who have taught generations of young people to hate America. As a minimum, school curriculum and text books teach revisionist history thoroughly ignoring American historical fact. Our Founding Fathers, if discussed at all, are portrayed as a bunch of elitist, racist, capitalist white guys who wrote the US Constitution to protect their own little fiefdoms. Nothing is further from the truth.

SELWYN DUKE: IS TRUMP OR HIS HATERS RESPONSIBLE FOR SYNAGOGUE CARNAGE?

After the tragic Saturday shooting that claimed 11 lives at a Pittsburgh synagogue, there has been, lamentably, a predictable response. Seizing upon the incident, leftists are blaming President Trump and his supporters for creating a “climate of hate.” In response to this and the notion that it justifies suppression of speech, others will say that only one man is responsible, mass murderer Robert Bowers. Yet there’s far more to this matter than either position indicates.

DR. MARK HENDRICKSON: THE PLITICS OF E15

Earlier this month, President Donald Trump announced that he was lifting an EPA ban on sales of E15—a blend of motor fuel for vehicles. Was this a political move? Or is it a reflection upon the current state of the environmentalist movement? In this article, economist Dr. Mark Hendrickson examines the announcement and further suggests that current trade policy may also be a motivating factor.

DENNIS PATRICK: HALLOWEEN IN CONTEXT

It’s that time of year when pumpkins metamorphose into jack-o-lanterns and little imps provoke adults to give them candy. Halloween is here again.

Is this really a time for celebrating evil, death and debauchery?

Many parents harbor misgivings about exposing their children to the horrific and macabre. Some rightly fear for the safety of their children. To celebrate or not to celebrate?

In light of today's "multicultural" environment, Halloween demands a fair hearing. In perspective, Halloween extends back more than one and a half millennium but few people associate Halloween with observances of the ancient Christian church.

On Saturday morning, 11 innocent people lost their lives at the hand of a gunman during a worship service at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. In this article, Dr. Paul Kengor details a personal account of the tragedy that left a community and nation asking: Why? Kengor reflects, “This world, unlike the heavenly paradise we seek, is full of sin and rot. Trees in this world decay and die. Like people, they face mortality in this realm. Eternal life and perfect bliss is not reachable in this world. It comes in the next.”

DENNIS PATRICK: FAILURE OF WASHINGTON, DC VERSUS TRUMP

A reasonable case for term limits can be made when reviewing the lack of accomplishments of the permanent political class. Where is their leadership when it counts? On many of the following items, especially military legislation, they seldom co-sponsor legislation much less lead on the national issues. They remain part of the inert establishment enjoying their perks. As part of the majority of their respective houses they have accomplished zero on illegal immigration, the devastating sequestration, the fight against terrorism, correcting America’s disastrous health care policy, reversing the upward trend of the ever-increasing national debt, thwarting the monstrous spread of federal regulations – the list goes on. They are part of the establishment. Very little changed in 2010, 2012 and 2014. Not until 2016 and Trump’s outsider style of leadership did things begin to change.
