    Canceling the Grand Old Party (GOP) was the mission of last week's "Hard Truth" podcast, undertaken by your columnist, her partner, David Vance, and guest Jack Kerwick (introduced here). And on good grounds. The Republican Party has never stood up for you, will never stand up for you and is not going to do what it takes. Past is prologue. As Dr. Boyd Cathey has observed, the "party which never conserves anything" had been exposed as such as far back as 1875. "The great Southern author, Robert Lewis Dabney, writing a decade after the end of the War Between the...

    Rep. Paul Ryan is a powerful member of Congress — he's House speaker serving his ninth term, and up for re-election. But some persuasive forces — including GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and conservative pundit Ann Coulter — are expressing support for his Wisconsin primary opponent Paul Nehlen. The state holds its Republican primary next Tuesday, Aug. 9.

    Secularism’s Arrogant Response to Archbishop Cordileone Whoopi Goldberg & Co. feel entitled to meddle in the Church’s sacramental affairs.Whoopi Goldberg, who has said that she got six or seven abortions by the age of 25, recently pronounced on The View that San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has no right to bar Nancy Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion. “This is not your job, dude,” Goldberg said. “That is not up to you to make that decision.” Goldberg then shared her musings on Eucharistic theology: “But, you know, what is the point of communion, right? It’s for sinners. It’s the reward of...

    A staggering 83% of Americans think the U.S. has gone off the rails amid record high inflation, shortages of baby formula, sky-high gas prices and mass shootings, a sobering new survey released Tuesday reveals. The Gallup Poll found only 16% of adults surveyed said they are satisfied with the way things are going in the country at this time, 83% are dissatisfied with the remaining 1% having no opinion.

    That’s not a rhetorical question, by the way. Seriously, it’s hard not to wonder how it’s possible that Whoopi Goldberg fancies herself to be an authoritative voice on current events. Quite frankly, I can’t understand how that happened. She says a lot of dumb things. Like on Monday, she went into hysterics about the archbishop of San Francisco banning Nancy Pelosi from Holy Communion in his diocese over her pro-abortion views. “The archbishop of San Francisco is calling for speaker Nancy Pelosi to be denied receiving Communion because of her pro-choice stance,” Goldberg noted. “This is not your job, dude....

    Leftists like Bill Maher complain about the ridiculous ends of their own beliefs while refusing to reconsider them.Left-wing comedian Bill Maher’s name was on conservative commentators’ lips again this weekend after the TV host suggested some children claim to be the opposite sex because “it’s trendy.” “If we can admit that in certain enclaves there is some level of trendiness to the idea of being anything other than straight, then this is not a serious science-based discussion,” Maher said on his show Friday. “We’re literally experimenting on children,” he added. National Review cheered Maher’s comments, figuring that “Bill Maher is...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday went after the Catholic Church for what she characterized as its hypocritical position when it comes to the politics of life and death. Pelosi, a practicing Catholic, was recently barred by the archbishop of San Francisco from taking communion for her support of abortion rights, which the church considers to be homicide at all stages from conception to birth. Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program on Tuesday morning, Pelosi wondered why the archbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, hasn’t applied the same ban to Catholics who support capital punishment.

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Monday on ABC’s “The View” that the archbishop of San Francisco is wrong for banning Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from receiving communion because of her stance on abortion but not banning Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) for being pro-death penalty. Behar said, “Pope Francis is not pro-choice, but he is also against capital punishment. I don’t see anybody denying, what’s his name, Abbott — Governor Abbott in Texas, who is the Catholic, and he’s executed many people. I don’t see him seeing he can’t receive communion. So the hypocrisy is in the church too. It also...

    You'd think Joe Scarborough—who frequently touts his Baptist roots—would be cautious when it comes to criticizing another religion. But on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough jumped in with both feet in slamming the Roman Catholic church over the excommunication by the archbishop of San Francisco of pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi. Scarborough said after the exposure of child sex abuse, "They should thank God that Nancy Pelosi has remained a Catholic through their torrent of the most grotesque sins imaginable."Somehow, abortion is never a "grotesque sin." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    In defiance of her own Archbishop’s decision to deny her communion because of her aggressive promotion of abortion, new reports indicate Nancy Pelosi received communion yesterday at a liberal Catholic church in Washington. As LifeNews reported, Cordileone said he formally notified U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week that she can no longer be allowed communion because she is no longer in communion with the Catholic Church by virtue of her repeatedly promoting abortion. Cordileone, who serves Pelosi’s home district of San Francisco, said he informed the congresswoman of his decision Thursday after repeated attempts to speak with her about...

    [Catholic Caucus] DC archdiocese accidentally sends blunt response on Pelosi Communion banEXCLUSIVE — Archbishop Wilton Gregory of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., has refused to comment publicly on whether he supports the barring of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from receiving Holy Communion in light of her stance on abortion, with his office saying in a blunt and mistakenly sent email to the Washington Examiner that requests “will be ignored.” A number of bishops have come together in support of San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone’s announcement issued Friday that because of Pelosi’s stance on abortion and her recent calls to...

    The Supreme Court issued opinions on Monday, and once again, the Court did not include a ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the highly-anticipated abortion case that could overrule Roe v. Wade. A leaked draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito aimed to do just that, stating that "Roe and Casey must be overruled," referring to the original 1973 case that established a constitutional right to get an abortion, and 1992's Planned Parenthood v. Casey that upheld that right. Monday was the second time the Supreme Court released opinions since Politico published the leaked draft opinion. The leak sparked...

    On the legal front, it appears that Roe v. Wade may soon suffer a calamitous defeat. But its defenders continue to insist that Roe remains popular with the American people because they have already won American hearts and minds about the moral necessity for women to have the ability to "choose" to kill their unborn child in the womb. In reality, they haven't been faring any better in that regard. Outside a small handful of the bluest states, which seem bent on enshrining a protection for a mother to kill her child up to the point of birth (and sometimes...

    ... In fact, some clinic workers and religious abortion advocates in the southeasternU.S. told that it's their faith, not a lack , that fuels their support for a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy. One example is Ramona, an employee at West Alabama Women’s Center, who claimed her "trust in God" is what led her to the clinic, where she tends to patients who have undergone abortion procedures. She and her fellow coworkers, "most of them black, deeply faithful Christian women," claimed they have no trouble reconciling their work with their religious beliefs. "God is on our side, they tell...

    It’s well-known that the Catholic Church, the largest religious body in the U.S. (and worldwide), profoundly abhors abortion, A 1965 decree from the world’s bishops at the Second Vatican Council declares that “from the moment of its conception, life must be guarded with the greatest care,” and calls abortion and infanticide “unspeakable crimes” against humanity. The church’s Catechism says the same and dates this belief back to Christianity’s first century (citing Didache 2:2 and Epistle of Barnabas 19:5). ...

    After a San Francisco archbishop barred Pelosi from receiving communion, reaction from advocacy groups was swift. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone wrote that Pelosi needed to "publicly repudiate" her support for the procedure. The Catholic Church has been unwavering in its opposition to abortion, which it deems a "grave sin." In a letter disclosed on Friday, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone wrote that until California Democrat seeks to "publicly repudiate" her stance regarding the "legitimacy of abortion," she would be blocked from the sacrament of Holy Communion, a core rite of Catholic worship. " ... By means of this communication I am hereby notifying...

    SPRINGFIELD — Republican activists Saturday overwhelmingly endorsed a Donald Trump-backed conservative for governor at the Massachusetts GOP convention, where speakers leaned heavily into national themes and culture war debates, railing against abortion, characterizing Democrats as “evil,” and issuing vague yet vulgar warnings about the state of education. Geoff Diehl, a former Whitman state lawmaker who’s trumpeted Trump’s false claims the 2020 election was rigged, received 71 percent of the 1,194 votes cast by party delegates, winning the party’s backing for governor. Diehl, also a former US Senate candidate, far outpaced Chris Doughty, a Wrentham business owner running for office for...
