    Seems that for Senator Dianne Feinstein, being a believing Catholic is enough to disqualify a candidate for a federal judgeship. Feinstein stated as such at confirmation hearings for Notre Dame law professor Amy Barrett, nominated by President Trump to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. "I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma," explained the Senator. "And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern when you come to the big issues that large numbers of people have...

    Tom Hawkins, who played six seasons for the Lakers, worked as a broadcaster in L.A. and later served as a Dodgers executive, passed away at his home in Malibu on Wednesday. He was 80. A 6-foot-5 forward, Hawkins starred at Chicago’s Parker (now Robeson) High School before playing at Notre Dame, where he became the first African-American student-athlete to earn All-America honors for the Fighting Irish. Hawkins was the first Irish player to average in double figures for scoring and rebounding during each of his three seasons (freshmen were ineligible during his collegiate career). His 1,318 career rebounds remains the...

    Ara Parseghian, a member of the College Football Hall of Fame who coached Notre Dame and Northwestern, has died. He was 94. Parseghian, who was born May 21, 1923, in Akron, Ohio, recently spent time in a nursing care facility because of a hip infection. He returned to his Indiana home last week to receive 24-hour care. Parseghian led the Irish to two national championships (1966, 1973) in 11 seasons in South Bend, Ind. Both of those teams were unbeaten. He had a 95-17-4 record at Notre Dame, where he also coached in what some called the "Game of the...

    THE family of the man accused of carrying out a terror attack at Notre Dame cathedral have said the terror suspect is "not an extremist". Farid Ikken, 40, was shot in the chest as he lunged at a police officer outside the world-famous cathedral on Tuesday afternoon and is currently under guard at a Paris hospital. The Algerian journalist reportedly shouted “this is for Syria” as he attacked a police officer with a hammer outside the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. A video of the suspect pledging allegiance to Islamic State (ISIS) was later found in his flat in the...

    PARIS — The Algerian doctoral student suspected of attacking police officers in front of Notre Dame Cathedral — with cries of “This is for Syria!” and a hammer — was identified Wednesday by a relative and a friend as an ex-journalist who firmly believed in democratic values and showed no signs of radicalization. The Paris prosecutor’s office said a search of a residence linked to the suspect in the suburb of Cergy-Pontoise uncovered a declaration of allegiance to the Islamic State group. A nephew in Algeria, lawyer Sofiane Ikken, said he was mystified by the finding because his uncle, Farid...

    A man armed with kitchen knives and a hammer attacked a police officer stationed outside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris Tuesday afternoon. The officer was wounded before police managed to shoot the attacker. Immediately after the incident, the cathedral was locked down: IMAGE French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said that the attacker was carrying the ID card of a student from Algeria. At the moment of the attack, thousands of people were inside the cathedral, eyewitnesses said. However, most remained calm once they understood something was going on. Apparently, Europeans are getting so used to terror attacks that we all...

    Vice President Michael Pence, former governor of Indiana, was invited to speak at the commencement ceremony at Notre Dame instead of President Donald Trump. He became the first vice president to speak at Notre Dame's commencement, after Notre Dame decided to not invite President Trump breaking a long-held tradition since 1960 of inviting presidents to speak at the university. Pence's speech focused on freedom of speech and how Notre Dame is one academic institution that encourages dissent and differing opinions. However, during his remarks, about one hundred graduates walked out of the ceremony, where over 3,100 graduates were in attendance...

    Pence used the opportunity to take aim at the Left and the rampant, un-American totalitarianism of the nation's institutions of higher education A few dozen virtue-signaling graduates and their family members made some kind of political statement by walking out on Vice President Mike Pence as he started delivering a commencement address on his home turf at Indiana’s Notre Dame University on Sunday. The event provides yet another reason why America’s thought-stifling universities should be defunded and the ground sown with salt.

    Vice President Mike Pence forged ahead Sunday with his University of Norte Dame commencement speech as some in attendance walked out, encouraging the graduates to keep their religious faith, value the freedom of speech and saying “the future is yours.” Pence, a former Indiana governor, was the most recent college campus speaker to face backlash or protest from students, faculty and others over ideological differences. He was invited to speak at the Catholic school, in South Bend, Ind., after students and faculty objected to a prospective invitation to President Trump, who would have been the seventh U.S. president to give...

    When Vice President Mike Pence delivers the commencement speech at Notre Dame on Sunday, he'll likely speak to fewer people than he expected. Some students at the Catholic university plan to walk out of the speech as part of a protest against Pence and his policies, which they say target marginalized people on the basis of their religion, skin color or sexual orientation, according to the student activist group We Stand For. Luis Miranda, a co-organizer of the walkout, said Pence, as Indiana governor and as vice president, targeted vulnerable people with his policies. Catholic values promote standing up for...

    Vice President Mike Pence’s scheduled commencement speech at Notre Dame has prompted a protest campaign by seniors who feel “unsafe.” ... “For me personally, [Mr. Pence] represents the larger Trump administration,” Ms. Mondane told school’s newspaper, The Observer, on Monday. “His administration represents something, and for many people on our campus, it makes them feel unsafe to have someone who openly is offensive but also demeaning of their humanity and of their life and of their identity.”

    Every time a new president is elected, Notre Dame invites them to speak at their campus. They’ve been doing this since Eisenhower. Several presidents have spoken at Notre Dame. They even invited the most pro-abortion president in history: Barack Obama. And he used the platform to lie to Catholics. He promised to defend our religious liberties. What a joke! But now -- with Donald Trump -- they’re having second thoughts. Notre Dame President John Jenkins says they aren’t sure if they’ll invite Trump to speak on campus. Are you kidding me? Tell Notre Dame: Invite Trump for 2017 Commencement! So...
