The unprotected class strikes back

By Tom Quiner | November 6, 2020

By Iowans for LIFE Wall Street Journal columnist, Peggy Noonan, made an astute observation four years ago. There are two classes in this country: the protected class and the unprotected class. In Noonan’s words: “The protected make public policy. The unprotected live in it. The unprotected are starting to push back, powerfully. The protected are the accomplished, the secure, the successful—those who have power or access to it. They are…

Would Satan and Jesus vote for different candidates?

By Tom Quiner | October 30, 2020

By Iowans for LIFE ‘What would Jesus do?’ became a powerful catch phrase with Christians in the 1990s. The question easily morphs into ‘who would Jesus vote for?’ during each election cycle, each side convinced that the Son of God is on their side. Just as interesting a question is, who would Satan vote for? Jesus is the Word made flesh, and the Word is Truth. By contrast, Satan is…

White Democratic Senator smears Coney Barrett with the ‘R’ word

By Tom Quiner | October 27, 2020

By Tom Quiner Amy Coney Barrett believes in originalism when it comes to deciding cases before the Supreme Court. In other words, she decides cases based on what the law says and what the words meant when the law was written. Democratic Senator Ed Markey, suggests her entire approach is racist, which means he thinks she is a racist. Here is what Markey said: “Originalism is racist. Originalism is sexist.…

The Coney vote reveals a gash in our history

By Tom Quiner | October 27, 2020

By Iowans For LIFE Something happened halfway between Herbert Hoover’s presidency and Donald Trump’s that scarred our nation. To this day, it is the elephant in the voting booth. The wound manifests itself in a variety of ways, most recently on display in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. It was again on display during the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings and vote.  Ms. Barrett’s Catholicism led adversarial Senators to grill…

Joe Biden fracking

Get over your love affair with affordable energy if Biden is elected

By Tom Quiner | October 23, 2020

By Tom Quiner “I never said I opposed fracking,” asserted Joe Biden in last night’s presidential debate. President Trump simply responded, “you said it on tape.” Indeed he has, repeatedly. Watch the video clip above. The clip reminds us that Joe Biden believes in nothing, having made whiplash-inducing flips and flops on a dizzying array of issues. If elected, there is no doubt that team Biden wants to degrade the…

The Trump success no one acknowledges

By Tom Quiner | October 21, 2020

By Tom Quiner What issue worries you the most? In 2015, the heart of Barack Obama’s final term, the third biggest issue that worried American voters was the possibility of future terrorist attacks on the U.S. According to a Gallup Poll, 51% of Americans feared Islamic terrorism. As of last month, in a different Gallup Poll, but one per cent of Americans considered terrorism our most pressing problem. Cause &…

Ten reasons I may vote Trump/Republican this November

By quinersdiner | September 25, 2020

By Thomas J. Maly 1. I have wonderful neighbors.  They are welcome in my home almost anytime.  However, I have this quaint notion that they should knock and not just come in without permission.  Seems to me our country should expect no less.  A precondition for meaningful immigration reform is a secure border for our country.  I may vote Trump/Republican. 2.  I like the idea that “sheepdogs, i.e. police, will respond…

The myth of the single issue pro-life voter

By quinersdiner | September 17, 2020

“How can you vote for that man and that party?”

the daughter sobbed hysterically to her shellshocked parents.

“You’re nothing but a single issue pro-life voter. I can’t even talk with you right now!”

In a conversation between a group of pro-lifers, the scenario above was reported not once, not twice, but three times. Has anything like this happened to you?

Fr. James Altman says the stakes are high when you vote

By quinersdiner | September 5, 2020

“You cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat. Period.”

These pointed words are stated by Fr. James Altman (above) from the Diocese of La Crosse, WI, in a video burning up the internet. More than a quarter of a million people have watched it on YouTube alone. Fr. Altman will surely get some pushback from some of his fellow clerics, even though Catholic Church documents, such as the Catechism of the Catholic Church, state that Catholics can’t directly support certain issues such as abortion.

We’ll leave it to them to wrangle over the sensitive issue of forming consciences of faithful citizenship.
