Is the Pope Latino?

Is the Pope Catholic?” is a longstanding response to those who show a stranglehold on the obvious. Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich recently gave it a new twist when he said that Pope Francis’ critics “don’t like him because he’s a Latino.” Cupich didn’t quote anybody, and he avoided the more obvious reasons Pope

The Munichian Candidate

Terrorist’s grandson Ammar Campa-Najjar is a “Palestinian-Mexican” American Democrat on the rise. “Grandson of terrorist rises in race against indicted GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter.” That supposedly “inflammatory” headline drew criticism on social media, and even the Reagan Battalion tweeted that it was “disgusting.” On the other hand, none of the critics questioned its

Lessons from Mollie Tibbetts and Other Murder Victims

A Mexican illegal alien who supposedly “blacked out” after abducting Mollie Tibbetts still managed to lead Iowa police to the body of the 20-year-old University of Iowa student.

The Great State of Andrew Cuomo

Kavanaugh Gets the Call: Get Ready for the Smear

Twelve days ago, Justice Anthony Kennedy stepped down and Monday night the pick to replace him was in. President Trump named D.C. Appeals Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh, 53, for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. The president sought a candidate who would “do what the law requires” and “apply the Constitution as written.”

Overruling Roe Doesn’t Require Religious Reasoning

With the retirement of Anthony Kennedy, President Trump will be selecting a second justice for the U.S. Supreme Court. As attorney and law professor Jessica Mason Pieklo warns, “that justice will, if conservatives get their way, be the vote that overturns Roe v. Wade once and for all.” That 1973 ruling empowered the abortion industry,

California Gets Its MOGO Working

In 1987, California Governor George Deukmejian returned $1.1 billion directly to the people “to protect this money for the taxpayers.” In the current $200 billion budget, outgoing Governor Jerry Brown returns zero dollars to the people and looks the other way at crumbling infrastructure and fathomless pension debt. On the other hand, the
