Politicians Hide Behind Catholic Charities to Welcome Illegals

It’s money laundering. Democratic politicians want to maximize illegal immigration, but they don’t want their fingerprints on it. The remedy: pay so-called charities that will do the work for them. Who’s in on this scam? President Joe Biden, and politicians across the country including New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser, and … Read more

A Weary World Rejoices

I suppose it’s a kind of privilege, of the kind one never asks for: We now live in times of an uncanny similitude to the very first Christmas in history.

The Great Reset of Our Souls

I’ve tried. I promise you I’ve tried to understand them. I’ve read social media posts of friends I disagree with. I’ve listened to perspectives wildly different than mine. I’ve made an honest effort to avoid creating echo chambers in my life … for better or for worse. After all my self-perceived open-mindedness, I still cannot … Read more
