Meanwhile in these tragic circumstances it is not Pope Francis or the World Meeting of Families Congress to which troubled souls should turn, but to God Almighty.

Spot on! Fr. West, Enough is Enough

By Judi McLeod

Spot on! Fr. West, Enough is Enough
How sincere was Pope Francis in responding to the grand jury report on clerical sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses?

The cynical among us, of which there are many practicing Catholics, would say about as sincere as a wife-beating alcoholic husband who tells his wife after his last beating: “I’m sorry and will never do it again.”

Appellate Court Ordered CA Governor to Return “Unlawfully Diverted” Subprime Crisis Funds

By Katy Grimes

Appellate Court Ordered CA Governor to Return
Gov. Jerry Brown was recently ordered by the state’s 3rd Appellate District Court to repay more than $331 million in funds the state illegally diverted from a national fund intended to help homeowners struggling with foreclosures from the housing crisis. Instead of complying with the court order, Democrats are pushing through a bill to legitimize the theft of funds.

Finally: PETA frees animal crackers from the cages on their box--yes, really
Hardcore progressives do some ridiculous things.  They wear ridiculous pink hats, they back ill-informed socialists in New York elections, they see bigotry where it doesn’t exist and ignore it where it does, and they get weepy over the Handmaid’s Tale while failing to mention the theocratic plight facing half the planet’s women.

The Evil All Around Us Must Be Eradicated—By Us

The Evil All Around Us Must Be Eradicated--By Us
Whether the topic is “Democratic Socialism,” or priest sex abuse cases, or top-down corruption in the law enforcement agencies Americans used to trust, there is evil all around us, and it’s permeating society.

McRaven is No Admiral of Mine

By Jim ONeill

McRaven is No Admiral of Mine,
It is traditional to often address former military officers, especially those of high rank, by their former grade—colonel, general, commander, admiral, etc. But I will make an exception with William McRaven, who is not worthy of his former title of admiral in my book.

Trusting the Untrustworthy

By Linda Goudsmit

Trusting the Untrustworthy
Sir Alexander Fraser Tytler (1747-1813), a Scottish jurist and historian, provides an explanation for why great societies do not survive for more than 200 years:

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship (bondage).”

Fix Real Infrastructure, Dump Green Grandstanding

Fix Real Infrastructure, Dump Green Grandstanding
Here are two messages for Canberra:

Firstly, Australia does not have a problem with too much carbon dioxide going to the sky – we have a problem storing enough of the water coming from the sky.

Secondly, Australia does not have a shortage of wind and solar “farms” - we have a shortage of water, stock feed and low-cost electricity on real farms.

By Douglas V. Gibbs

 Misleading Security Clearance Revocation Story
I don’t normally watch the alphabet networks or liberal left media outlets.  While up north in Oregon, however, a person I am visiting is fond of NBC.  During a commercial earlier in the day, yesterday, advertising the upcoming episode of the network’s NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, the host looked me in the eye through the camera lens and my television screen and said, “The president is revoking security clearances of government officials who criticize him.”

Coordinated Anti-Trump Editorial Day and Only Dogs are Barking

By Judi McLeod

Coordinated Anti-Trump Editorial Day and Only Dogs are Barking
D-Day for the 340-something newspapers who took up the Boston Globe’s lead to publish anti-Trump editorials on their largely ignored-by-the-public editorial pages, and only Rex Huppke’s dog over at the Chicago Tribune is getting to lap up any attention.
