WORDS OF HOPE FROM ROME

W

Yesterday, Italy’s probable next Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni, made the following statement: “We did not fight against and defeat communism in order to replace it with a new internationalist regime, but to permit independent nation states once again to defend the freedom, identity and sovereignty of their peoples.” I posted this quote on my Facebook page, where it won quick approval from...

Tim Challies: A Modern-Day Rev. Hyde

T

By Tom Piatak In writing on religious topics for myriad conservative publications through the past 20 years, my approach has been that of C. S. Lewis in Mere Christianity. I do not hide that I’m Catholic, but I think Benjamin Franklin’s advice on different circumstances applies to the plight we Christians face today: “If we don’t hang together, we will most assuredly hang separately.” As my...

THEY DON’T LOVE AMERICA AND THEY DON’T LOVE US

T

by Tom Piatak Pope Francis said something important in his news conference on the flight back from Kazakhstan: “To defend oneself is not only a right, but it’s also an act of love for the homeland. If someone doesn’t defend something, they don’t love it.” Francis was talking about the Ukrainians’ defense of their country from the Russian invasion. He would not use the same language to describe...

How The Middle class Is Being Squeezed: Globalization And Financialization Of The Economy

H

By Darrell Dow In 2016, Donald Trump announced his candidacy in a meandering speech which is widely remembered for his comments about Mexican immigration. Immigration was, of course, central to Trump’s 2016 success. But the theme with which he closed the speech animated his campaign and gave Trump’s candidacy its central expression.    “Sadly, the American dream is dead,” Trump...

A Great Need For Witness

A

by Tom Piatak An energetic and engaging evangelical church publishes a prayer calendar describing the missionaries from the church, other missions supported by the church, and the world mission field, as seen from the perspective of the church, all for the purpose of soliciting prayers for those mission efforts. Unfortunately, I find that calendar rather less engaging than some of the church’s...

Turn Off The Spigot. Time For An Immigration Moratorium

T

As yet another caravan of “migrants” marches toward the southern border like a relentless column of ravenous army ants, the Biden Regime and its lackeys in the Lügenpresse insist that the “Great Replacement” is a “conspiracy theory.” But the demographic transformation of the United States is not only quite real but also escalating while Americans watch helplessly. Let’s look at the data. The...

Democracy Does Not Mean Rule by Judges

D

By Tom Piatak I wish all those hyperventilating over the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs would actually read the decision. It is clear, logical, and persuasive. Unlike Roe, it actually explains why its conclusion is grounded in the Constitution. Roe never had any basis at all in the Constitution. It was merely an “exercise of raw judicial power,” as Byron White noted in his...

Let’s Talk About January 6, Please!

L

Inflation, after being quiescent for decades, is at a 40 year high. Gas prices are ruinously expensive. Biden passed up an early chance to negotiate an honorable peace in Ukraine, and, as a result, we are pouring billions we don’t have into yet another foreign war that does not concern vital American interests.Our southern border is wide open,  violent crime is beginning to skyrocket, and...

David Frum’s Mendacious Choice

D

By Tom Piatak Look at the reasons Canadian parasite David Frum offers for opposing the $40 billion tax transfer to Ukraine: Subtle distinctions between those who oppose Ukraine aid because they affirmatively admire and support Putin, those who oppose the aid because they hate the West and want it to lose, and those who oppose the aid for the crass partisan reason that Biden is doing it. Subtle...

With SCOTUS Leak, The Real Insurrection Has Begun

W

By Tom Piatak When Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election, this country’s Never Trump Elites were floating on a sea of smug self-righteousness and self-congratulation. “The adults” were back in charge.  “Democracy” was saved. A great danger was averted. Prime exhibit of that danger: the “insurrection” on January 6, 2021, when a small number of Trump supporters, who were part of a...
