The message was concise and clear: “Donald Trump was shot.” Did this surprise?  No.  Trump has been a soft target of an ongoing character assassination since 2015, when he first announced his candidacy for the presidency as a republican.  

During your life, you have resided under the Muhammad Ali of American presidents “the greatest of all time,” and as luck would have it, you are now living under the second greatest president, ever. What are the odds?  Provided that is not enough, over in Rome on the chair of Peter sits the grandest pope in the history of the Church. 

Every day is like having the largest Powerball winning lottery ticket sitting on your dresser waiting to be cashed.  Halcyon days, indeed.

And then you wake up.

The debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump made it painfully clear what everyone paying attention already knew.  Without the teleprompter, Biden looked frail, confused and sounded flustered, while having difficulty maintaining focus, proving he is not up to serving four more years in office.

The debate was over as soon as Trump remarked that he did not know what Biden was saying and that Biden didn’t know either.

The left’s house organ, The New York Times, called on Biden to end his campaign. “He struggled to explain what he would accomplish in a second term. He struggled to respond to Mr. Trump’s provocations.  More than once, he struggled to make it to the end of a sentence.” 

After more than half a century in politics, Biden’s expiration date is past, and his party admitted it.

Democrats use people to hold power and when they are of no further use, dispose of them. Despite South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s penchant for putting down vicious dogs, Democrats are out of luck. After more than half a century in politics, Biden’s expiration date is past, and his party admitted it. 

A top-ten list Democrats’ might want to consider in replacing Biden:  

Harrison Butker, the Super Bowl winning placekicker for the Kansas City Chiefs, is anything but a buffet Catholic like the Bidens. Butker could then suit up for the Washington NFL franchise on gamedays.  A two-fer for the D.C. swamp-dwellers. 

Disney’s animatronic Biden: Turn it down to half-speed and no one would be able to tell the difference, according to the Babylon Bee.

The puppet Walter from Jeff Dunham.  It is as wooden as the present White House occupant whom Obama’s leftovers are always telling what and when to speak.

Martin Sheen: The Golden Globe winner played Democrat president Jed Bartlet in NBC’s The West Wing. With Americans acquainted to someone playing president, Sheen would be a natural. 

Jimmy Carter: The 99-year-old former president and Georgia peanut farmer still has one more four-year term of eligibility left and no NIL deal to complicate matters.   

Taylor Swift: For the first time since Biden started campaigning from his basement, Democrats would finally have someone at the top of their ballot who can draw a crowd, even if it is only Swifties.

Mike Tyson: No one should want Biden going mano e mano with Russia’s Putin, China’s Xi Jinping or even North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Bring on the once self-described “baddest man on the planet.”

Dig up Caligula: Despite his corpse status for over two millennia, Caligula was equally as scandalous as the Bidens, but did manage to construct roads and aqueducts, while keeping the peace. 

Dave Chappelle: The entire Biden administration has been an extended version of The Chappell Show.  The time is long past to bring in the professionals. 

Hunter Biden: After all, he is the smartest guy Joe knows. That’s assuming Joe still knows him. 

Democrats will keep Biden at the top of their ticket because reprinting the millions of ballots already packaged for November’s harvest is much easier.

Democrats will keep Biden at the top of their ticket because reprinting the millions of ballots already packaged for November’s harvest is much easier. To help matters along, provided there is a second debate, CNN has agreed to turn off the mike when Biden mumbles.

Do you really expect a political party that ignores the First, Second, and Tenth Amendments to take heed of the 25th Amendment whereby “the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” 

Provided Biden agreed to serve one term, all of this would be a nonstarter. Given his decline, it was clearly an egocentric act for Biden to seek reelection. The imploding Biden marionette show is long past its expiration.

Others culpable include First Lady Jill Biden, the enabler-in-chief, who is guilty of elder abuse. Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the White House physician who is responsible for reporting on the president’s health and has consistently stated Biden is “fit for duty”.  O’Connor’s continued presence is a disservice and an existential threat to the nation. 

Primaries were changed, allowing South Carolina to move ahead of three states Biden lost in 2020: Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada. Biden has the delegates to win the nomination, provided he doesn’t “voluntarily” withdraw.

America is being run by Obama’s unelected, bureaucratic leftovers – the true “threat to democracy.” 

Biden is unfit and doesn’t belong in the White House, and his entire party is complicit. 

Perhaps some are finally waking up to this?

A Gallup poll revealed 32% of voters will only vote for candidates who share their views on abortion, which includes 23% who support abortion and 8% who oppose.

On Thursday, June 27, the political season kicks off in earnest. The presidential debate that will occupy that evening certainly is unique in its longtime storied annals.  Both candidates are presidents, one a former, the other holding the office. Moreover, both candidates have yet to be officially nominated by their respective parties.

It was the 80th anniversary of D-Day and the West’s leadership was on full display at the solemn observance in Normandy, France, but there wasn’t a Reagan or Thatcher to be found. 

That shining city on the hill that Ronald Reagan so eloquently described is trading a democratic republic in for a banana republic in less than a generation.  Third world dictatorships are infamous for convicting people they don’t like. We are now no better. When the constitutional rights of a citizen are trampled upon, we all lose. Reagan schooled America back in the 1980s how, “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

In his initial run for Pennsylvania Governor, Josh Shapiro educated anyone paying attention to the art of the political flip-flop, as it was his support of educational scholarships that helped get him the commonwealth’s top job in Harrisburg. Once the ballots declared Shapiro the winner, the new governor, along with his wife and children who never spent a day in public school, rolled over for the teacher’s union when Shapiro vetoed the scholarship’s legislation.  

Some headlines fly under the radar that too often seem by design. Last month, the Biden administration in an authoritarian overreach of the first order, twisted the longstanding Title IX into a political pretzel by redefining “sex” to include “gender identity.”

On the field, middle linebacker Dick Butkus was one of the most intimidating players in NFL history, but it took a placekicker to become the most feared player off it.  Who knew that a modest commencement speech by Harrison  Butker, the Kansas City Chief’s placekicker, would prompt the Left into a goal line blitz against him that continues unabated.

Butker’s address has kicked butt, scoring over 1.9 million views on YouTube that took place at the small, tucked away, Benedictine College run by the sisters of Mount St. Scholastica in Atchison, Kansas.

Fearlessly standing against the noxious winds of the zeitgeist – rare for a professional athlete – Butker is the anti-Colin Kaepernick. He could have easily punted and played it safe by pontificating about his three Super Bowl championships and lofty paychecks.

Had Butker stepped on the dais waving a Palestinian flag, endorsing abortion and transgenderism, he would be lauded as a contemporary icon. Rather, he threw an uncontested Hail Mary, bringing to light a litany of Catholic catechesis in his commencement address on faith and family. 

Had Butker stepped on the dais waving a Palestinian flag, endorsing abortion and transgenderism, he would be lauded as a contemporary icon. Rather, he threw an uncontested Hail Mary, bringing to light a litany of Catholic catechesis in his commencement address on faith and family. 

The kicker was not shy, recounting his love and commitment to the faith in what he called “a post-God world.” Benedictine is a Catholic college, so what was the arrogant Left expecting? His greatest sin was criticizing America’s ever growing secular agnosticism.

Butker said the silent parts out loud standing unapologetically for traditional Catholic values. 

Butker spoke truth to power when describing the time-honored roles of wives and husbands, saying his wife would agree that her life “truly started when she began living her vocation as a wife and as a mother.”  Naturally, feminists went crazy branding him misogynistic and a host of other vulgar un-printables. These feminists took their cue from Vice President Kamala Harris who scored another first by dropping the f-bomb, while addressing the recent APAICS Summit.     

The Super Bowl record holder didn’t hesitate to give a swift kick in the backside to that self-professed Catholic in the White House saying, “Our own nation is led by a man who publicly and proudly proclaims his Catholic faith but at the same time is delusional enough to make the sign of the cross during a pro-abortion rally.” 

Butker called out abortion, IVF, birth control, surrogacy, euthanasia, COVID lockdowns, radical feminism, gender ideology, and Gay Pride Month.  He lamented the “absence of men in the home” and the “cultural emasculation of men.” In other words, Butker spoke to traditional Catholic moral theology something rarely heard on any given Sunday.

The overt coverage is as much of a story as is the speech itself and the considerable backlash underscores how Catholicism is under attack from both outside and within the Church. That criticism can be found starting with the sisters of St. Benedictine’s College whose chorus against Butker writing, “The sisters of Mount St. Scholastica do not believe that Harrison Butker’s comments in his 2024 Benedictine College commencement address represent the Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts college that our founders envisioned and in which we have been so invested.” 

It was Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen who prophetically proclaimed over a half century ago, “Who’s going to save our Church? It’s not our bishops, it’s not our priests and it is not the religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, and the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that the priests act like priests, your bishops act like bishops, and the religious act like religious.”

The sisters are the crux of the problem.

Ever since Vatican II, the Church has desired acceptance with secular elites and by keeping the hard truths under wraps, it would certainly earn a seat on the dais. The consequence of such poisoned reasoning was a precipitous drop in Mass attendance, a dearth in vocations and ultimately irrelevance. 

Jesus taught: “If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first.”  Evil retreats when people of faith stand united.  Jesus prayed that all his disciples would be one as He and the Father are one.

Perhaps change is on the horizon, and credit Butker for kicking things off. In a letter dated May 20, 2024, Archbishop Cordileone of San Francisco decreed that former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is not to be admitted to Holy Communion until she publicly repudiates her support for abortion and confesses and receives absolution for her cooperation in this evil.

A Change.org petition has 224,785 signatures to get Butker booted from the Chiefs. These Marxists demand compliance without dialogue and questioning. They are the folks who desperately need an overdose of their own medicine.  

It was Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen who prophetically proclaimed over a half century ago, “Who’s going to save our Church? It’s not our bishops, it’s not our priests and it is not the religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, and the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that the priests act like priests, your bishops act like bishops, and the religious act like religious.”

Harrison Butker kicked things off, but who will follow?
