Does the preservation of Western nations and peoples require measures from which liberal societies today reflexively recoil?

"If you’re … pathetically weak, the country is going to be overrun with millions of people, and if you’re strong, then [...]

By |2020-08-04T15:42:17-05:00February 26th, 2018|Categories: Donald Trump, Immigration, Joseph Mussomeli, Politics|

We need immigrants to replenish and refresh and revitalize our population, but we need to better manage the flow of immigration and certainly more wisely manage which immigrants get priority. Our Statue of Liberty proudly proclaims that we are a refuge for the “huddled masses” and “wretched refuse” of the world. Refuse, as in scum [...]

The cherubim could speak volumes in describing all the misguided efforts to sneak by them and enter the Garden.

President Orbán has the courage and integrity to stand up to the secularist bullying of the European Union and to the efforts to force Hungary to allow countless Islamic immigrants into its midst. And yet even heroes need correcting when they get things wrong… The discussion of Hillaire Belloc’s writing on Europe and the Faith, [...]

What we need is a love for both our country and our humanity, whether it be through religion, reason, or both.

What ideology ever threatened America more than Islamic extremism?

The world is on the threshold of the most devastating war [...]

By |2019-09-12T13:52:00-05:00July 2nd, 2017|Categories: Edmund Burke, Europe, History, Immigration, Muslim|

Edmund Burke believed in change, knowing that a nation unwilling or unable to change would collapse. However, he believed in prudence, moderation, moral restraint, and gradual implementation with reflective assessment. Had modern Europeans believed in the same things, they would not be in this predicament now… “All circumstances taken together, the French Revolution is the [...]

By |2017-06-30T23:56:19-05:00June 30th, 2017|Categories: Christianity, Europe, Immigration, Islam, Joseph Pearce, Religion, Terrorism|

For Christians caught in the crossfire between Islamist and “Islamophobic” hatred, the only choice is to take the Mercutio option, refusing to take sides in a heartless and headless feud and calling down a plague upon both hate-filled parties… What is the world coming to?
