    While the tradition of the Alfred E. Smith dinner to invite the Republican and Democrat nominee to raise money for charity is admirable, it was disturbing to see Timothy Cardinal Dolan laughing and joking with Hillary Clinton less than twenty-four hours after Hillary announced she supports abortion up to the moment of birth.  Worse, when he spoke at the end, he made a vague oblique reference to the life of the unborn when he said some of the money raised would help poor women give birth. I understand that the dinner is to raise money and everyone tries to...

    During a stop in Toledo Sunday, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told Hillary Clinton supporters that he’s personally seen a “toughness and purposefulness” about her. Supporters gathered at Warren and Pat Tipton’s home to hear the mayor at an event to promote early voting. Mr. de Blasio, who ran Mrs. Clinton’s 2000 Senate campaign, said those are the qualities voters should value. “And that’s what I want in a president,” he said. “I think we need to really dwell on that. Do we want a president who is going to have a solidity to keep going no matter what’s...

Just one day ahead of the Clinton v. Trump debate in St. Louis, the campaign efforts have...

The Republican presidential candidate told CNN in a statement this week that "they admitted they were guilty. The police doing the original investigation say they were guilty. The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous. And the woman, so badly injured, will never be the same."

    Less than two weeks after the terrorist bombings in New Jersey and New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration is launching a new campaign against the “negative rhetoric targeting Muslim communities” that the city says gets worse after “terrorist incidents.” A press release from the city on Monday explained the reasoning for the new anti-anti-Islam efforts: “Across the country, hateful speech has made Muslim residents the target of misguided attacks and threats, especially in the aftermath of terrorist incidents,” states a press release from the city.

    New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced a couple of days after U.S. citizen and Afghani immigrant Ahmad Khan Rahami’s terrorist attack had injured 29 in his city that this was the time to bring in more Muslim immigrants. The timing of the Mayor’s immigration comment, which had a forced, agenda-driven quality was odd. Many New Yorkers certainly wished for a brief period of reflection, at least, before plunging willy-nilly back into the quixotic pursuit of the multicultural dream. The Mayor had just met with his London political and ideological counterpart, Sadiq Khan, who’d stated that terrorism was part...
