With the legal recognition of same-sex “marriage” having been imposed across the United States by a narrow 5-4 majority of frivolously activist Supreme Court Justices, the LGBT-lobby is now trying its luck to achieve the same with regard to so-called “transgender” rights, the next step in their sinister agenda to dissolve peoples’ true reality in a sauce of newly-discovered “sexual identities”. Quite remarkably, the larmoyant reports (in radically-minded outlets such as the New York Times or the WaPo) about alleged “discriminations ” of self-defined “transgender” persons have multiplied by factor 100 in the year since the Obergefell Decision, which clearly indicates that a media campaign is being waged to prepare the next round of cultural revolutions.
However, the sexual-disorder-lobby’s hopes for a quick victory were quashed last week, when the Supreme Court decided to throw out a major “transgender” lawsuit, sending the case back to a lower federal court. Continue reading
Norma McCorvey, the mother who sought an abortion in the infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade case in the US Supreme Court passed away on 18 February. The case in which she was referred to anonymously as Jane Roe ended in a ruling by the activist court which deemed that the US Constitution guaranteed a “right to abortion”, something found nowhere in the text, thereby striking down all laws by individual states which banned abortion.

Some say that for Donald Trump this was going to be “one of the most important decisions of his term as President”. If that is so, then he has accomplished an important part of his mission already after one week in office. While furor is raging in the media over his decrees on immigration, his pick for the Supreme Court leaves no wishes open: Neil Gorsuch, a man with excellent credentials both as a judge and as an academic, who is generally considered to be a worthy successor to Antonin Scalia both on account of his intellectual capacities and moral integrity.

One of the greatest defenders of the US Constitution in the 20th Century, Phyllis Schlafly, passed away on 5 September aged 92. During 70 years of political activism she did perhaps more to defend the integrity of the Constitution, as well as the dignity of American womanhood, than any other individual. Continue reading
A recent cover page of The Economist announced “Art of the lie: Post-truth politics in the age of social media”. Inside the lead article warns darkly of the threat to democracy posed by the notion that “feelings, not facts, are what matter”. The examples used to sustain The Economist’s thesis – Donald Trump, Ronald Reagan, the Polish Law and Justice Government, the Brexit ‘Leave’ campaign – leave us in no doubt about who the editor of this liberal newspaper believes is responsible for this threat, the political right.

The stream of incredible news about US presidential hopeful Donald Trump seems endless. We seem to have already grown use to his coarse language, and to his promises of shutting the frontier to Mexican and/or Muslim immigrants. The latest news is that he wants the US to leave the World Trade Organization (!) and that he does not consider it worthwhile to support Estonia or other NATO partners in the (hypothetical) case of a Russian aggression.
Both suggestions are of course nonsense. Dangerous nonsense. Dangerous both for the US and for the rest of the world.
With regard to Hillary Clinton, the (Western European) mass media seem far less critical. This is unfortunate. While there is no doubt that the possible election of Donald Trump should be a reason for concern for any serious-minded observer, the election of Hillary Clinton would hardly be better.

If, as some “liberal” politicians claim, abortion should be “safe, rare, and legal”, then the Texas statute that the US Supreme Court has struck down through yet another of its law-bending judgments, must have been exactly to their taste: in order to guarantee the safety of women seeking abortion, it required abortion clinics to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles.
