Donald Trump hasnt the most conservative of track records. His opponents in the GOP presidential field and in segments of the so-called conservative media have sought to discredit Trump on this score.

Suffice it to say, that while Trump may not be a conservative, John Kasich most definitely is not.

As I argued a few weeks ago, there are reasons for doubting Donald Trumps conservative bona fides. But those of his critics at Fox News and in some quarters of conservative talk radio who level this charge against him are disingenuous, for neither are their candidates of choice conservative.

Jeb, as everyone now knows, is an unabashed immigration enthusiast and proponent of amnesty (comprehensive immigration reform by its true name). Yet he also supported the bank bailouts of 2008, and in 2003, he deployed $310 million in stimulus money toward a single company, Scrippswhich was hardly in dire economic straightsfor bio-medical research.

Anyone who thinks that Trump is either a conservative or a libertarian is willfully blind to his record.

If there remained any doubts that academia is among the most thoughtless places in the cosmos, the University of New Hampshire just put them to rest once and for all.

When it was revealed that Dylann Roof, the 21 year-old white man responsible for murdering nine black Christians in their Charleston, South Carolina church, had affection for the Confederate flag, the movers and shakers in the political, corporate, and media worlds launched a campaign to extirpate the flag from every vestige of public life.

While Americans of a certain political persuasion are having conniptions over the sight of the Confederate flag, Donald Trumps remarks on Mexican immigrants, and a Christian bakers refusal to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual couple, Christians like the Abada family in Iraq suffer real persecution the likes of which most of us can scarcely imagine.

Laudato Si, Pope Francis latest encyclical, is quite provocative.

Posted July 10, 2015

At the moment, Donald Trump, deservedly, is all of the rage for remarks he made regarding Mexican immigrants to the United States.

The Dylann Roof/Charleston massacre supplies much food for thought.
