Manipulated by the Media

A lot of our ideas about Trump have been carefully crafted by the media. They are quite adept at getting us to view Dan Quayle as unintelligent, Sarah Palin as completely incompetent, Clarence Thomas as a womanizer, Pius XII as Hitler's Pope, Christopher Columbus as an unscrupulous explorer who was responsible for small-poxing the Indians. I look at the media and various revisionist history as I would regard a Soviet Union journalist. That being said I don't look at the candidates as candidates for canonization, necessarily. I'm not even sure a saint would make a good president.

Make America Great Again

Make America great again. Alex de Tocqueville once said that America is great because she is good and she will no longer be great when she is no longer good. After last night's results I believe we are seeing the first steps back onto that path of greatness, with God's help.                                                                                                                                                                      For those who have been prompted by Pravda to view Mr. Trump as a narcicist please view his (nota bene: the use of 'our' rather than 'my') victory speech. It completely shows up that consistent mantra we've all been hearing as a most inaccurate and false calumny.

Lynne Patton on the Trump Family: a Different Portrait

For those of you, my friends, who have been convinced by our unbiased media and well engineered sound bites that Donald J. Trump is a racist and sexist and xenophobe and islamophobe and all the phobes constructed by the progressive linguists... this video seems to tell another story. And just a question to help perhaps in making your election decision: would someone who hates the African American baby be against Margaret Sanger's clinics? Wouldn't it be the candidate that is for the inner city clinics that would be the one who seeks to limit or eliminate the black family?

Academic Freedom or Academic Fascism?

Okay, so here is the new academic freedom, eh? This is what the college culture has come to? What should be surprising to me is that I am not surprised. We have in charge of colleges these days, no matter if they are Catholic or not, totalitarians of thought. May you stay strong, Professor Tony Esolen. Back in the early apostolic era St Polycarp on his way to his uttermost witness was spoken to from the great cloud of witnesses to 'play the man'. Keep strong. Should you be ousted from your post your students will be the great losers. I dread what our country is so quickly becoming. Yes, our Lord was completely correct as we should always expect: The believer will be persecuted for righteousness sake. Men (and colleges) do indeed love darkness rather than light, especially when the darkness masquerades as diversity.

Can the Electoriate Knowing This still Be Undecided?

One candidate advocates that a child in the womb is subject, all nine months, to be removed limb by limb, the material in the skull---that in short order would be able to calculate a sum, register the beauty of a color, message her little fingers to use a crayon---that this material could be sucked out of the little skull. And yet we still can be undecided? We can still feel badly in voting for the alternative? All I can think is that our own Pravda's propaganda must indeed have a potency beyond any poison I can imagine.
