The Man Who Paved the Way
for Irish America’s Rise

National Review, by John Loughery

Original Article

Posted By:Tishimself, 4/16/2018 8:13:10 AM

There is a kind of modernity to the 19th-century story of New York archbishop John Hughes, in terms of three issues we still have cause to ponder in the United States: namely, the nature of community, the utility of any form of identity politics, and our national embrace of — and, in some quarters now, new skepticism about — multiple cultural identities. Hughes gave thought to the forces that were necessary to forge a tight-knit community, and his answers, if dangerous in our own day, seemed more reasonable to him. He did not share Bishop Benedict Joseph Fenwick’s gentleness when

Dagger John practiced some real Tough Love with the Irish. I can´t help but think the black community needs their own version of Dagger John.

Laura Bush blasts Trump migrant
policy as ´cruel´ and ´immoral´

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

Stick a Fork in It,
the Old GOP Is Dead

“There is no Republican Party. There’s a Trump party,” John Boehner told a Mackinac, Michigan, gathering of the GOP faithful last week. “The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere.” Ex-Speaker Boehner should probably re-check the old party’s pulse, for the Bush-Boehner GOP may not just be napping. It could be comatose. Consider: that GOP was dedicated to free trade, open borders, amnesty and using U.S. power to punish aggressors and “end tyranny in our world.” That GOP set out to create a new world order where dictatorships were threatened with “regime change,” and democratic capitalism was the new

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert will join U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg at Mitt Romney´s annual political retreat this week. The invitation-only event that started as a fundraiser during Romney´s 2012 presidential bid will also feature business and health care leaders, including Intermountain Healthcare President and CEO Marc Harrison. About 250 people, including big-money GOP donors, are expected to attend what´s known as the Experts and Enthusiasts Summit, set to start Thursday and end Saturday at the Stein Eriksen Lodge at Deer Valley.

What’s Next for Conservatism
Federalist, by Daniel Oliver    Original Article

Conservatives tend to be skeptical of joining great political movements because they tend to be skeptical of both politics and movements that are great. They prefer the little platoon, the shire, which they know to be safe—or at least probably safer than what lies beyond. Not all politics may be local, but all politics that isn’t local tends toward the totalitarian, however far short of it it may actually fall. That sounds almost like a philosophy of government—though not a government that any American alive today has experienced. But times can change, and they have with the election of Donald Trump.

Salt Lake City - Mitt Romney, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Utah, is set to host his annual gathering of top Republicans, wealthy political donors and powerful business leaders. The guest list at the three-day, invitation-only event beginning Thursday in Park City, Utah, is largely under wraps, but Gov. Gary Herbert has it on his schedule. U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who is addressing business leaders in the area at a separate event over the weekend, is also expected to attend the summit. The gathering at Stein Eriksen Lodge has traditionally been a summit of Romney allies closed to the public.

Antifa and Patriot Prayer
demonstrators clash in downtown
Portland; 4 arrested

Dueling demonstrations faced off Sunday in downtown Portland, marking the first large street protest of the spring. The rallies drew hundreds to a pair of parks near City Hall, including right-wing Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson of Vancouver, his supporters and counter-protesters, including black-clad antifascists, known as antifa. The rallies began peacefully and escalated with shoving, a small bonfire on the antifa side of the gatherings and punches thrown. Portland police stepped in to quell the fights and asked people to stay away from the area as Patriot Prayer supporters started marching. Portland police said officers with the Federal Protective Service and a

If only conservatives were kinder, gentler and more "with it." Who could stop us? Certainly not Democrats. So the secret to conservative political success today is to act more like liberals, and they will like us more, too. Anyone who has spent more than ten minutes with any Republican functionary attached to some aspiring Republican office-holder knows the pitch: Trump? He has no right to be here.

Like the McCarthy Era, but with
No Communist Threat to Support It
National Review, by Jonah Goldberg    Original Article

How many divisions does the Deep State have? During the so-called McCarthy era, a single question cut across all partisan and philosophical lines: Were you on Senator Joe McCarthy’s side or not? McCarthy’s conspiratorial, bullying, blunderbuss anti-Communism and “red-baiting” was either defensible or it wasn’t. Remarkably, for many on the right, the question of whether you were “with” McCarthy almost completely crowded out the question of whether or not you were right-wing or left-wing, Democrat or Republican, or even where you stood on the question of Communism itself. The pressing issue was whether McCarthy went too far

Republican Utah Senate hopeful Mitt Romney said in a new interview that he does not see President Trump as a good “role model” for his grandchildren. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts and the GOP´s presidential nominee in 2012, made the comment during an interview with NBC News on Monday, ahead of a Senate primary debate. “I don’t think that I would point to the president as a role model for my grandkids on the basis of his personal style,” Romney said. “He has departed in some cases from the truth and has attacked in a way that I think is

Is Saudi Arabia’s 32-Year-Old
Crown Prince Dead?
New York Observer, by Sissy Cao    Original Article
Posted By: Tishimself- 5/26/2018 9:29:29     Post Reply
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the 32-year-old media-savvy leader of the oil kingdom, has been unnaturally quiet recently, so much so that some in the Middle East media couldn’t help but wonder if he is dead. Bin Salman hasn’t been seen in the public eye since his meeting with the Spanish royal family in on April 12. On April 21, heavy gunfire was heard near a royal palace in Riyadh, the kingdom’s capital. Although Saudi Arabia’s state news agency claimed it was a security force shooting down a toy drone that had gotten too close to the royal property, some wondered if the gunfire was in fact a coup led by Saudi

A day after her great-great uncle Jack Johnson was pardoned, Linda Haywood, returned to his gravesite Friday with her daughter and the Rev. Jesse Jackson to mark the end of a decades-long journey to clear the legendary boxer’s name. “I know and believe in my heart that you are proud of me,” Haywood said looking at Johnson’s grave marker at Graceland Cemetery on the North Side. “Your place in history gets to be restored. We have walked the last mile and you are the victor.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Thursday after attending a classified briefing that he continues to support special counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. McConnell told NPR that Mueller´s investigation and a separate probe by the Justice Department´s inspector general into the FBI´s actions during the 2016 election will ultimately provide answers to a number of questions swirling around the presidential race. "The two investigations going on that I think will give us the answers to the questions that you raise — the [inspector general]

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

Tesla CEO and PayPal billionaire Elon Musk surprised many Friday when he declared on Twitter that he is a socialist. Conservative critics, however, may well have agreed, given his companies’ reliance on the state. Musk tweeted his declaration Friday after first tweeting that socialists have no sense of humor: (Tweet) When challenged to define his own ideology, however, Musk said he was a “socialist”: (Tweets) Musk then responded to the latter tweet by declaring: (Tweets) Left-wing critics on Twitter weren’t having it: (Tweets) Conservatives have often criticized Musk in the past for relying heavily on government for his companies’

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved? Campus Reform: The hospital’s president, Dr. Betsy Nabel, told the Globe that moving the portraits is the right decision: “I have watched the faces of individuals as they have come into Bornstein.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- An Indiana hospital for the Department of Veterans Affairs temporarily removed its military flags to put up an LGBT pride flag Tuesday. Some veterans in Fort Wayne, Indiana arrived at the VA hospital Tuesday morning and noticed all the military flags had been removed. On one of the flagpoles was a rainbow flag, in honor of LGBT pride month, WPTA in Fort Wayne reported. Some people in the area questioned the VA´s decision.

Bill Maher suggested there should be a movement for people who have been victims of police brutality after a discussion on his show about police brutality. During a segment on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, Maher called out abusive police officers and the people who protect him on Friday. “We need to stop saying most cops are good like we know that to be true,” Maher said. “I hope it’s true, but I need some evidence, unlike cops.” The HBO show host continued and said the violence exposed by the people who post the videos on social media is a problem.

While speaking to a group of activists in San Francisco, Hillary Clinton stressed that gun control is a “political necessity” and part of “taking back” the country. Clinton ran gun control as a candidate in the 2016 election and lost. President Trump ran as pro-gun and LMT Online reports that Clinton is now criticizing him for standing with gun rights organizations. She said Trump “did everything he could to ingratiate himself with the gun lobby, and is now doing everything he can to gut existing laws.” Despite losing the election, Clinton claimed that “the vast majority of Americans” support the gun control position, adding,

A Massachusetts high school has halted yearbook sales after realizing that a senior quote inside was linked to Adolf Hitler. ´Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it,´ read the quote under one senior´s photo in the Andover High School yearbook, the school realized this week. The quote, though not word-for-word, seems to reference the concept of the ´big lie´ famous from the writings of both Hitler and Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbles.

The floats at the Boise Pride Festival have changed drastically over nearly three decades. Dallas Chase knows this well. Chase, 71, attended the first festival in Boise, an informal gathering in 1989. She was part of the team that built the first "float." It consisted of a borrowed wagon from her neighbor decorated with painted cardboard. "It was done in secret in my garage," Chase said. In those days, Chase said festivalgoers wore masks to avoid having their identities revealed. Anti-gay protesters would line the streets, dressed in black and holding aggressive, defamatory signs, said Robert Franklin, who was also

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came. (Photos/Video) It meant an automatic two-shot penalty and he ended up with a 10 for the hole. ´That´s absolutely amazing, that´s Phil basically giving
