Erasing Our History
by Patrick J. Buchanan
August 17
, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- When the Dodge Charger of 20-year-old Nazi sympathizer James Alex Fields Jr., plunged into that crowd of protesters Saturday, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer, Fields put Charlottesville on the map of modernity alongside Ferguson. Before Fields ran down the protesters, and then backed up, running down more, what was happening seemed but a bloody brawl between extremists on both sides of the issue of whether Robert E. Lee's statue should be removed from Emancipation Park, formerly Lee Park.

Is the Pope Square?
by Joe Sobran
August 11
, 2017

Joe Sobran Griffin Internet Syndicate, August 5, 2003 – Speaking as a Catholic, I wish the Vatican would say nothing about same-sex “marriage.” It’s beneath its dignity to enter into debate with a sick joke, and when it does so it only allows progressive-minded fools to change the subject.

Violent Religions
by Joe Sobran
August 4
, 2017

Joe Sobran Griffin Internet Syndicate, October 6, 2006 – In the modern West, Islam is thought of as a violent religion, and I’ve done my part, along with some fanatical (but not necessarily typical) Muslims, to reinforce this view. It’s fatally easy to mistake the nuts for the norm. But I think there may be a better way to look at the situation.

Humanae Vitae Foresaw the Culture of Death in 1968
by Christopher Manion
July 27
, 2017

FRONT ROYAL, VA -- This week we celebrate the 49th anniversary of Humanae Vitae, the brave and beautiful encyclical of Blessed Paul VI promulgated on July 25, 1968.

Brave? Absolutely. This eloquent articulation of the teaching of the Church and the fundamentals of the Natural Law constituted a direct challenge to what Pope Benedict has called “the spirit of the age.”

My Cane
by Joe Sobran
July 20
, 2017

Joe Sobran Griffin Internet Syndicate, May 15, 2007 – Two years ago, after foot surgery, I started walking with a cane. The ankle has healed, but I’ve kept the cane. I like it. It helps my balance, it’s funny, and it strengthens my faith.

In this allegedly Darwinian world, where life is a ruthless competition for survival, my cane is magic. It causes young people, fitter than I am for physical existence, to call me “sir” and hold doors and show me a respect I’ve never enjoyed before. Nobody ever told me a stick of wood could exert such spiritual power. I think I’ll keep it.

Belloc’s Prophecy
by Joe Sobran
July 14
, 2017

Hilaire Belloc
Hilaire Belloc
Griffin Internet Syndicate, October 25, 2001 – Back in the 1930s, when white men were preparing for another round of mutual slaughter, few of them paid any attention to the Muslim world. They assumed it to be a backward region that history had long since passed by.

One man saw it differently. The great Catholic polemicist Hilaire Belloc, an Englishman of French ancestry, remembered Islam’s past and predicted, in his book The Great Heresies, that it would one day challenge the West again.

Are We Still One Nation Under God?
by Patrick J. Buchanan
July 06
, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In the first line of the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, Thomas Jefferson speaks of "one people." The Constitution, agreed upon by the Founding Fathers in Philadelphia in 1789, begins, "We the people..."

And who were these "people"?

In Federalist No. 2, John Jay writes of them as "one united people ... descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs..."

If such are the elements of nationhood and peoplehood, can we still speak of Americans as one nation and one people? READ MORE

Buzz Lightyear for President
by Joe Sobran
June 30
, 2017

Joe Sobran Griffin Internet Syndicate, January 27, 2004 – In 1960, when I was 14, I was nuts about JFK. The first one, John F. Kennedy, not the current one, John F. Kerry. I got about thirty JFK buttons from the local Democratic headquarters, pinned them all to my shirt, and wore them to school.

A Long History of Leftist Hatred
by Patrick J. Buchanan
June 22
, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- James T. Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, who aspired to end his life as a mass murderer of Republican Congressmen, was a Donald Trump hater and a Bernie Sanders backer.

Like many before him, Hodgkinson was a malevolent man of the hating and hard left. READ MORE

Deep State Sabotaging Trump Agenda
by Patrick J. Buchanan
June 15
, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Trump may be chief of state, head of government and commander in chief, but his administration is shot through with disloyalists plotting to bring him down.

We are approaching something of a civil war where the capital city seeks the overthrow of the sovereign and its own restoration. READ MORE

Patriotism or Nationalism?
by Joe Sobran
June 8
, 2017

Joe Sobran Griffin Internet Syndiate,10/16/2001 -- This is a season of patriotism, but also of something that is easily mistaken for patriotism; namely, nationalism. The difference is vital.

G.K. Chesterton once observed that Rudyard Kipling, the great poet of British imperialism, suffered from a “lack of patriotism.” He explained: “He admires England, but he does not love her; for we admire things with reasons, but love them without reasons. He admires England because she is strong, not because she is English.”

Dishonoring Confederate War Dead
by Patrick J. Buchanan
May 29
, 2017

Confederate General Stonewall Jackson surveys a battle scene WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On Sept. 1, 1864, Union forces under Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, victorious at Jonesborough, burned Atlanta and began the March to the Sea where Sherman's troops looted and pillaged farms and towns all along the 300-mile road to Savannah.

Captured in the Confederate defeat at Jonesborough was William Martin Buchanan of Okolona, Mississippi, who was transferred by rail to the Union POW stockade at Camp Douglas, Illinois.

By the standards of modernity, my great-grandfather, fighting to prevent the torching of Georgia's capital, was engaged in a criminal and immoral cause.

Trump and Brexit: a Revolt Against the Elites
by Robert L. Hale
May 25
, 2017

MINOT, ND -- I sense a new and real revolution brewing. It is, in some ways, not unlike the American Revolution. America’s Revolution was pushed by the revulsion for arrogant King George III and his insistence that colonists give him their money (taxes) to impose his will on them, without their representation.

There is a reason that the current tension in the EU and America’s rejection of the left/progressivism is so threatening to the U.S. and EU power structures.

Trump, Watergate, & Comey

May 18
, 2017

Patrick J. Buchanan: Nixon's White House Wars WASHINGTON, D.C. -- History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce, said Marx.

On publication day of my memoir of Richard Nixon's White House, President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. Instantly, the media cried "Nixonian," comparing it to the 1973 Saturday Night Massacre.

Yet, the differences are stark. READ MORE

Christians Being Driven Out of the Holy Land
by Patrick J. Buchanan
May 12
, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? (My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?)" Those are among Jesus' last words on the Cross that first Good Friday. It was a cry of agony, but not despair. The dying Christ, to rise again in three days, was repeating the first words of the 22nd Psalm.

And today, in lands where Christ lived and taught and beyond where the Christian faith was born and nourished, the words echo. For it is in the birthplace of Christianity that Christians face the greatest of persecutions and martyrdoms since the time of Vladimir Lenin and Josef Stalin.

Crime and Mercy
by Joe Sobran
May 3
, 2017

Joe Sobran CLASSIC, 6/24/2008 -- Reports of some criminals in the news media fill me with furtive delight and admiration: the clever embezzler who bilks a huge corporation, the gifted swindler who passes off his forgery as a Picasso. I can almost excuse a crime that requires talent or wit, as long as nobody gets seriously hurt. Part of me whispers enviously, "Why didn't I think of that?"

But now and then a reported crime will move me to murderous indignation.

Guilt Trip Over the Crusades
by Sam Francis
April 26
, 2017

CLASSIC, 4/27/1999 -- One anniversary that’s not on this year’s calendar is the 900th observance of the capture of Jerusalem by Christian crusaders on July 15, 1099. As a matter of fact, it’s an anniversary that’s probably never been on any year’s calendar, since virtually everyone forgot about it sometime around the year 1600. But some never forget, and they’re getting ready to do what 20th century man is supposed to do, at least in the West: apologize for it.

Thoughts on a New Dark Age: A review of the Sobran collection, Subtracting Christianity
by Jason Jewell
April 13
, 2017

Subtracting Christianity MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA – “On the whole, the secularist media the papacy” (210). This line, written in 2005 shortly after Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI, is vintage Joe Sobran. It is not just extremely witty. In a few words, it communicates so much: the stability of Roman Catholic doctrine, the hatred of that doctrine by so many moderns, and those moderns’ reluctant acknowledgment that the church is not inclined to change in order to suit them.

Subtracting Christianity: Essays on American Culture and Society, where this line has most recently appeared, is the latest published collection of the essays of Joseph Sobran (1946–2010), one of the most dynamic and controversial journalists of the last generation. READ REST OF ARTICLE

Let's Make Russia Our Sister Country
by Ann Coulter
March 23
, 2017

Ann Coulter The more hysterical liberals become about Russia, the more your antennae should go up.

Violent Attack on Free Speech at Middlebury College
by Allan Brownfeld
March 16
, 2017

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA – Attacks on free speech, particularly on the nation's college and university campuses, seem to be mounting. 

In early March, hundreds of students at Middlebury College in Vermont shouted down Charles Murray, the widely read and controversial social scientist.

When Dr. Murray rose to speak, he was shouted down by most of the more than 400 students who packed into the room. They chanted, “Racist, sexist, anti-gay, Charles Murray, go away.” READ REST OF ARTICLE

Joe Sobran Special from LewRockwell.com – Perhaps Fox TV viewers and readers of his bestselling books think that Bill O’Reilly is a Renaissance Man. However, there is a far more intelligent and profound voice we can all listen to that thanks to Lew Rockwell I discovered; that voice belongs to Joseph Sobran. READ MORE

Two Classic Sobran Articles: Pensées, and Lincoln and His Legacy

Publisher’s Note: To commemorate the 71st anniversary of Joe Sobran’s birth on February 23, we are pleased to provide a link to his classic essay, Pensées: Notes for the Reactionary of Tomorrow, and the below article.

Lincoln and His Legacy
by Joe Sobran
February 22
, 2017

Joe Sobran CLASSIC, 2/19/2008 -- At this point it is probably futile to try to reverse the deification of Abraham Lincoln. Next year, if I know my countrymen, the bicentennial of his birth will be marked by stupendously cloying anniversary observances, all of them affirming, if not his literal divinity, at least something mighty close to it.

Trump's Travel Ban
by Patrick J. Buchanan
February 3
, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – That hysterical reaction to the travel ban announced Friday is a portent of what is to come if President Donald Trump carries out the mandate given to him by those who elected him.

The travel ban bars refugees for 120 days. From Syria, refugees are banned indefinitely. And a 90-day ban has been imposed on travel here from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen.

Was that weekend-long primal scream really justified? READ MORE

Trump's Inaugural: America for Americans!
by Patrick J. Buchanan
January 27
, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- As the patriotic pageantry of Inauguration Day gave way to the demonstrations of defiance Saturday, our new America came into view. We are two nations now, two peoples.

Though bracing, President Trump's inaugural address was rooted in cold truths, as he dispensed with the customary idealism of inaugurals that are forgotten within a fortnight of the president being sworn in.

Trump's inaugural was Jacksonian. READ MORE

Joe Sobran SOBRAN'S, DECEMBER 2003 -- Andrew Sullivan has established himself as the most eloquent voice of “gay” Catholics in the American media. He recently wrote a piece on the op-ed page of the New York Times to bewail what he chooses to call the Church’s “hostility” to homosexuals.

The Man They Still Hate

December 30

CLASSIC, December 2, 1999 -- The world has long since forgiven Julius Caesar. Nobody today finds Socrates or Cicero irritating. Few of us resent Alexander the Great or his tutor, Aristotle.

Mary CLASSIC, May 29, 2009 -- Next to the peerless Tom Wolfe, perhaps the most brilliantly gifted living American writer is Garry Wills. Immensely learned and versatile, Wills has written award-winning books on many subjects, from Macbeth to the Gettysburg Address. Some of these suffer from a bit of illogic, though they are largely redeemed by his stylish and scholarly prose.

Hating Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa CLASSIC, October 1997 -- I’ve always resisted calling Mother Teresa a saint, not because I had any reason to doubt her holiness, but because I felt it was presumptuous to call any living person a saint. Besides, I suspect that a truly holy person -- holiness being inseparable from humility -- would hate being venerated in this life.

The protests, riots and violence that have attended his triumph in city after city should only serve to steel his resolve. Read More

A review of Hustler: The Clinton Legacy, a collection of essays by Joseph Sobran

Hustler: The Clinton Legacy Special from LewRockwell.com, October 31, 2016 -- Twice in six months I find myself reviewing works by my dear old friend Joe Sobran. This time around, the Fitzgerald Griffin Foundation has treated us to an anthology of Joe’s essays on Bill Clinton during his two terms in the White House. What strikes the reader immediately is the incisive analysis: Joe cuts to the chase; while being spot-on, he never descends into boorishness or uncivilized prose, which he would have deemed unworthy of a Christian gentleman.

August 29
, 2016

Subtracting Christianity Special from The Catholic Thing — Two quite intelligent women came by independent of one another this week, one an accomplished hospital nurse who specialized in exotic diseases, the other a longtime educational specialist with wide artistic interests. Very different personalities, but eerily alike in expressing, without provocation, their deep distress at "not understanding anything" anymore. Not understanding America or the president, the Church or the pope, the world and its seeming descent into a cultural wasteland and social chaos.

Two Cheers for Theocracy
by Joe Sobran
August 25
, 2016

SOBRAN'S THE REAL NEWS OF THE MONTH, February 1999 — I grew up in a theocracy. I didn’t realize it as a boy; in fact I never heard it described that way. The only reason I now know it was a theocracy is that people who want to restore the America of the Fifties — anti-abortion Catholics, the “Christian Right” — are accused of wanting to establish a theocracy.

Subtracting Christianity
Special from The Catholic World Report — In 1980, as a priest not yet thirty years of age, I found myself placed in charge of developing local chapters of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights on the entire eastern seaboard. Those were heady days with Pope John Paul II truly coming into his own and determined to correct course for the Catholic Church and President Ronald Reagan seeking to do the same for the United States and, by extension, for the world.

Clinton's Gut Issue
by Joe Sobran
August 11
, 2016

CLASSIC: November 18, 1997 — There is no popular demand for war with Iraq or anyone else, and President Clinton knows it. The pressure for war is coming from the usual quarters: those who, for various reasons, want the United States to dominate the Middle East.

Legacy

CLASSIC: April 8, 1999 — As he ordered the bombing of Kosovo, Bill Clinton assured the nation that he has been “reading up on the history of that area.” That’s a load off! The great war-time presidents have always realized that before you bomb a country, you should read up on it.

Hustler: The Clinton Legacy
CLASSIC: July 1996 — I keep catching myself hoping that Bill Clinton will be reelected. It isn't just that Bob Dole richly deserves to lose; it's that mere electoral defeat would be an inadequate comeuppance for the Clintons. They are headed for their own Watergate, and it would be a pity to see the drama aborted. I'm only moderately vindictive: I want them hounded out of office, not hounded after they've already left.

The Selfless President
by Joe Sobran
July 21
, 2016

Ever the moral ham, Clinton continues to feign contrition, laying it
on a little thicker with each attempt. Every time he sheds his skin,
he wants us to believe he’s no longer a snake.

CLASSIC: January 21, 1996 — Bill Clinton is a New Democrat again. Having tarred the Republicans as extremists, he is filching their themes, thereby displaying one of his defining qualities: an utter incapacity for embarrassment.

Diane Speaks His Piece
by Joe Sobran
July 13
, 2016

CLASSIC: October 19, 2004 — I have no idea who “Diane” is, but his e-mail message sounds angry with me. In fact, Diane says he is “deeply offended” by the “pure bigotry” of my column of September 21, “Equality Run Amok,” which he finds “demeaning.”

You may think Diane is an odd name for a guy, but that’s Diane’s point. He claims to be a woman, “simply a woman,” and identifies himself, in case you haven’t already guessed, as a “transsexual.”
