Donald Trump needs to set reasonable goals and make sensible proposals. He needs to be a leader. He can’t lead, however, when he is totally lost himself. Mr. Trump has no vision, no plan. He just tweets absurdities. The only real purpose of a border wall is to feed Mr.... Continue reading

It is becoming more and more obvious that the Radical Democrats are a Party of open borders and crime. They want nothing to do with the major Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border. #2020!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 16, 2019 Continue reading

In a speech to the nation last week (“Trump makes his case on wall,” Page A1, Jan. 9), Donald Trump deluged the country with half-truths and bald-faced lies, which, according to independent fact-checkers, he previously has done thousands of times. Yet a large majority of Republican senators continue to bow... Continue reading

Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamburgers etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 15,... Continue reading

Twenty years ago, Newt Gingrich instituted the politics of personal destruction and government shutdowns. It reached its zenith in Donald Trump. The Republican Party has entered into a destructive marriage with Mr. Trump. Its reputation for intellectual honesty, fiscal conservancy and belief in small government is now on life support....

To the editor: Matt Welch argues passionately and persuasively that Republican legislators ought not to cede authority to the president. But he doesn’t touch on why they have lost their spines. Polls consistently show strong support for the president among the one-third of the national electorate who vote Republican. So,... Continue reading

The damage done to our Country from a badly broken Border - Drugs, Crime and so much that is bad - is far greater than a Shutdown, which the Dems can easily fix as soon as they come back to Washington!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 13, 2019 Continue reading

Men expect from the various religions answers to the unsolved riddles of the human condition, which today, even as in former times, deeply stir the hearts of men: What is man? What is the meaning, the aim of our life? What is moral good, what is sin? Whence suffering and... Continue reading

We, the people of the United States, have to impeach President Donald Trump. He thinks he owns the Untied [sic] States like one of his companies. He works for us; we hired him. This is our country. This guy should not be allowed to shut down our government as if... Continue reading

It is difficult to praise punishment. Only a retributivist could make it out to be a good thing. But it can be defended, for the proffered alternative is far worse. Contrary to their protestations, the enlightened reformers who would replace punishment by a form of treatment chosen scientifically by sociologists... Continue reading

Let's analyze the sign (from the television series Impractical Jokers). The sign (click to enlarge the image) is telling me not to stop doing something, in other words, to keep doing something. What am I doing? I'm letting people not help. This implies that I have the power or authority... Continue reading

I fully agree with President Donald Trump’s belief that the controversy over the border wall constitutes a national emergency. It truly is an emergency. Government employees cannot buy food or pay their rent, and many are refusing to work. National parks are closing and being vandalized. And that’s just for... Continue reading

Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border. I just got back and it is a far worse situation than almost anyone would understand, an invasion! I have been there numerous times - The Democrats, Cryin’ Chuck and Nancy don’t know how bad and dangerous it is for our ENTIRE COUNTRY.... —... Continue reading

When I have assigned the document Dignitatis Humanae in courses addressing questions of religious liberty, I have always stressed to my students the importance of reading another document of the Second Vatican Council, Nostra Aetate, together with it. Whether one is Catholic or not, I don’t think it is possible... Continue reading
