Obama Loses Second Debate

President Obama was the clear loser in the debate on October 16th. One more nail in the coffin of this failed presidency. This is best summed up in the bumper sticker, “Jimmy Carter, no longer our worst president.” Some reasons for rating Obama the loser? The prime reason is he was trying to win the…

Time Has Come to Tax Abortion

Supreme Court Opens the Door for Abortion Taxation In one of the most wrongheaded ruling by any Supreme Court at any time, five of the justices, peculiarly including Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts, have ruled that Obama Care is a legal tax. It did this despite the fact that President Obama continues…

Obamacare on its Death Bed?

The unconstitutionality of Obamacare has never been questioned here at American Notebook. While the world awaits what the Supremes think about it, it seems clear they will pull the plug on this terminally ill piece of legislation. They will surely couch it in fancy legal terms, with many references to precedent. But once you get…

Murder, Violence and Media-Raised-Children

The over-arching media presumption is we are nation of drunk college students, happy to see deviancy normalized. Who notices the weak minds of youngsters destroyed in the process, or, as in the latest teen-child thrill killing story (not a pleasant read, take our word for it), the other lives they in turn destroy? What forces…

“Invisible” March for Life Marks 39th Year

There was a time in Poland when people of faith were invisible. They just didn’t exist – at least not officially. Then the steel-worker town of Nova Huta, a planned city without a church, was built. And slowly, surely, the people of faith who didn’t exist, began to gather for Christmas Midnight Mass in a…

7 Billion and Shrinking

With the birth of the 7 billionth baby on planet earth this November, the cry went out about so-called “out of control population growth rates.” Such is the charge made by an aging chorus of population fear-mongers, those wealthy cave dwellers of the upper East Side and Cambridge and their allies in that East River…

Obama Losing the Catholic Vote

Nice piece in the Washington Post about how the Obama administration is at war with Catholics. This, one supposes, is only news to those who sincerely believed that Obama had a shred of sincerity in his dealings with Catholics. (And nice job to the “Washington Compost” gremlins for putting an anti-Catholic cartoon on the webpage…

Personhood Ammendment Fails in Mississippi

It seems the verbal engineers didn’t wait for a court date to try and distort the pro-life issue of human personhood as it was placed on the ballot in Mississippi. Despite strong support from party leaders, Initiative 26 didn’t get the votes needed to pass. The old canards were trotted out to derail what is…

Mississippi Challenges Abortion Establishment

Most people have heard almost nothing of what seems like an amazing state constitutional referendum in Mississippi. If it passes, it will define as persons “every human being from the moment of fertilization, cloning or the equivalent thereof.” Presumably that includes all unborn children – even those monstrously cloned. Its passage seems likely, according to…
