Remarks at South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore Fireworks Celebration

By |2020-07-07T10:32:47-05:00July 5th, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Presidency|

In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. Make no mistake: this left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing, they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity [...]

Remarks at the West Point Graduation Ceremony

By |2020-06-16T13:45:02-05:00June 16th, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Military, Presidency|

The Army exists to preserve the republic and the strong foundations upon which it stands: family, God, country, liberty, and justice. What has historically made America unique is the durability of its institutions against the passions and prejudices of the moment. When times are turbulent, what matters most is that which is permanent, timeless, enduring, [...]

The Benedict Option and the Case for Spiritual Secession

We are called to be contemplatives in the world, not of it or above it. Since our true life is not here where political parties constantly vie for our affection, we can let go of all this nonsense and focus on neighbor love. That doesn’t mean not voting or not dealing with the massive [...]

After the Virus: The Deluge?

By |2020-05-03T17:28:35-05:00May 3rd, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Coronavirus, Donald Trump, Freedom, Government, Joseph Pearce, Politics, Senior Contributors|

We need to see beyond the myopia of the current crisis to its long-term consequences. What awaits us when the pestilence passes? What sort of world will we be living in? Will the lessons learned lead to the restoration of lost liberties, or will we find that the freedoms we relinquished in this time [...]

What Will Be the New American Cause?

By |2020-04-21T10:16:59-05:00April 21st, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Foreign Affairs, Pat Buchanan|

If Donald Trump wins the 2020 election, borders will be tightened. The U.S. withdrawal from the Mideast will continue. U.S. manufacturing will begin to be repatriated. Transnational institutions will be downgraded, ignored and superseded. The watchword will be what it has lately been: "America First." After the Great Pandemic has passed and we emerge from [...]

COVID-19: The Road to Tyranny is Paved with Pandemics

A few weeks ago, the word was temporary. Now we are hearing indefinite. America’s recently unemployed subjects under house arrest can be forgiven for starting to wonder from behind their bootlegged face-masks: If politicians and the media continue to clamor for increasingly draconian measures (including, in the case of EWTN White House correspondent Owen [...]

For the Sake of Its Health, Let’s Get This Country Moving!

My initial skepticism about the way in which we have dealt with this real but exaggerated threat has only grown. In fact, the lockdowns and the shuttering of our medical and economic system have now become a greater threat than the disease itself. After my essay on conservative skepticism about both the severity of [...]

Are We Ready for the Leftwing Virus?

By |2020-04-05T12:52:07-05:00April 5th, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Coronavirus, Donald Trump, Liberalism, Politics, Progressivism, Republicans|

Many Americans agree that something hasn’t smelled right about this pandemic from the beginning, something in the air that smacks of calculated panic and political engineering. The coronavirus will pass, God willing, but perhaps in its place will come another disease—the relentless leftwing virus. Donald J. Trump has been criticized and condemned for calling [...]

The COVID-19 Crisis: The Need to Balance Public Health & Economic Stability

By |2020-03-28T19:24:05-05:00March 28th, 2020|Categories: Coronavirus, Donald Trump, Gleaves Whitney, Presidency|

Who’s right, the public health officials or the economists? That’s the question we are tempted to ask. But in this pandemic, it’s the wrong question. Both sides are right. Franklin D. Roosevelt had his Great Depression. George W. Bush had his Great Recession. And Donald J. Trump has his Great Pandemic. Over the past weeks, [...]

In the Pandemic, It’s Every Nation for Itself

By |2020-03-17T06:51:13-05:00March 17th, 2020|Categories: Coronavirus, Donald Trump, Foreign Affairs, Government, Pat Buchanan|

Closing borders is a grievous offense against liberalism that is supposedly rooted in the sin of xenophobia. But what governments in Europe are saying by closing their borders, what Americans are saying by banning travel from Europe, is that while all men may be created equal, we will always put our own people first, ahead [...]

By |2020-03-14T16:53:09-05:00March 14th, 2020|Categories: Catholicism, Christianity, Donald Trump, Politics, Presidency, Truth, Uncategorized|

Christians should admire and respect all that President Trump has done for the cause of life, and prepare to support him against the hate he will face from his opponent. His Ash Wednesday message of humility and living the Gospel is a comfort because it shows that he is willing to speak the truth. [...]
