Glenn Greenwald on the Insularity and Failure…

…of Western elites. Hillary, as a dutiful servant of the 1%, will continue that failure. Trump, as a fascist demagogue, recognizes in that failure an opportunity, not to help the increasing numbers of people suffering from radical income inequality, but a way to direct their rage to his own advantage and enrichment. Lyndon Johnson touched [Read More…]

Nate Silver, who called the last election

…gives Hillary 80% of the vote this fall. It’s a good start, but we need a more shattering margin of victory, say 90-95%. Something so overwhelming and crushing that Trump, the racist misogynist morons who nominated him, the cynics who catechized them, the janitor who swept up after them, and everybody who ever served them [Read More…]

Frederica Mathewes-Green articulates the classic Christian Whole Life position

…over at National Review: “There I was, anti-war, anti–capital punishment, even vegetarian, and a firm believer that social justice cannot be won at the cost of violence. Well, this sure looked like violence. How had I agreed to make this hideous act the centerpiece of my feminism? How could I think it was wrong to [Read More…]

The 19th Century American Know Nothing Myth…

…of the inexhaustible dragon’s hoard of wealth in the dungeons of the Vatican is deathless. Compare and contrast (courtesy of John Allen, Jr.): Operating Budget:  (Vatican) $300 million  Harvard ($3.7 billion) Endowment/Patrimony: (Vatican) $1 billion; Harvard ($30.7 billion) Americans remain country yokels at heart when it comes to Catholic stuff.  We still believe all that [Read More…]

My Filipina reader writes back

Thank you for publishing my prayer request, and for your prayers as well. National politics has never been much fun for me, and now it’s quite painful. I think what’s frustrating for me is the avoidance of difficult but important historical details. Instead we have politicians adjusting the independence day to June 12, 1898 because [Read More…]

Trump’s Ongoing Corruption of Christian Witness

Under the strong, self-imposed delusion that Trump (who has maintained steadfast silence since the recent Supreme Court decision)… “He was on Twitter, making fun of Elizabeth Warren and lamenting how CNN has gone negative on him. That’s it. Nothing else.” …cares about them as anything other than useful idiots, Christian Trumpkins continue to demonstrate the [Read More…]

Feel free to discuss

Just as contemporary conservative soteriology boils down to “Opposition to abortion taketh away the sins of the world”, so contemporary conservative moral theology boils down to “There’s simply no point in attempting any virtue or obedience to Christ until all abortion everywhere is eliminated.” That’s the thinking that is constantly called ‘rightly ordering our moral [Read More…]

When Trump completely and utterly destroys the GOP…

I hope that one of people whose career in politics is left a smoking ruin so that he can do something worthwhile like clean toilets is that of Rep. Jeffrey Guice. And I hope Nicole Nichols runs for his seat and wins it. “Party of God, Life, and Family” my eye. [Read more…]

A reader is looking for a new strategy re: abortion

He writes: After what happened today at SCOTUS, and considering Trump’s list of Supreme Court nominees is real (he is a liar, but let’s consider that list is true for the sake of the argument), does he still fare worse than Hillary (who is expected to appoint at least 3 *young* very-liberal justices)? I wholeheartedly [Read More…]
