Are We Ready for the Leftwing Virus?

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 [...]

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. [...]

American Leadership in Crisis

By |2020-03-08T20:49:59-05:00March 8th, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Democracy, Donald Trump, Government, Leadership, Politics, Presidency|

History teaches that chosen leaders can unite and divide nations. Unfortunately, discussions on what true leadership must mean for America have been lacking. There is no dearth of leaders in America. Countless platoons representing special interests that range from wealth preservation to sexual orientation favor their own version of a leader. Much of the [...]

Coronavirus: The Chickens of Globalization Coming Home to Roost?

By |2020-03-02T08:44:09-06:00February 28th, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Presidency|

If a pandemic threatens, transnationalism's "open borders" ideology is not a policy that will bring universal acclamation. Like Trump's America, all nations, in this crisis, are going to put their own people first. As they should. Not until well into the Democratic debate Tuesday night did the COVID-19 coronavirus come up, and it was Mike [...]

If Duterte Wants Us Out of the Philippines, Let’s Go

By |2020-02-17T23:41:51-06:00February 17th, 2020|Categories: Donald Trump, Foreign Affairs, Pat Buchanan|

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has just given us notice he will be terminating the Visiting Forces Agreement that governs U.S. military personnel in the islands. His notification starts the clock running on a six-month deadline. If no new agreement is negotiated, the VFA is dissolved. What triggered the decision? Duterte was offended that one of [...]

Using Impeachment to Make America Ungovernable

By |2020-02-06T11:41:58-06:00February 6th, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Donald Trump, Government, Politics|

The impeachment trial was not about the President himself or his alleged wrongdoings. It was not even about his shortcomings. It was about the vision of America that he represents. The bizarre impeachment drama is over, and most Americans still cannot make sense of it. The exhausting proceedings took America on an emotional roller [...]

The Dark Road From Abortion to Infanticide in American Law

By |2020-02-07T10:49:09-06:00February 3rd, 2020|Categories: Abortion, Conservatism, Donald Trump, Government, Liberalism, Politics, Senior Contributors, Thomas R. Ascik|

The contemporary frequency of parents, especially mothers, killing their children—not only newborn babies but toddlers too—is a new phenomenon. Does this have something to do with the relentless loosening of abortion laws in America since Roe v. Wade? We live in an era where we pretend that we do not know when life begins, [...]

Impeachment: The Left’s Ultimate Weapon

By |2020-01-28T00:57:22-06:00January 28th, 2020|Categories: Constitution, Donald Trump, Pat Buchanan, Presidency|

Even before the 2016 election, Democrats, collaborating with a like-minded media, were using the instruments of power they possess, to first prevent and then to overturn the election results of 2016. Russiagate, the James Comey FBI investigation, the Mueller probe — aborting a Trump presidency has always been the goal. In 1868, President Andrew Johnson [...]

The 2020 Election Will Render a Verdict on Progressivism

By |2020-01-25T23:58:09-06:00January 26th, 2020|Categories: American Republic, Donald Trump, Government, Politics, Progressivism|

Conventional wisdom has it that the 2020 election will be a referendum on Donald Trump. Perhaps so. But the result could also prove to be a referendum on something ultimately much more important than Mr. Trump. A Trump victory—or a Trump defeat—could prove to be a referendum on the larger phenomenon of modern progressivism. [...]
