"Where were the Ann Coulter Hit-pieces"

Election Story the Media Missed: Pro-Family Truth Campaign Helped Sink Romney in Iowa
Republicans For Family Values -- www.rffv.org
NAPERVILLE, Ill., Jan. 4 /Christian Newswire/ -- Peter LaBarbera, founder of the Republicans For Family Values website, issued the following statement on Mitt Romney's stunning Iowa Caucuses defeat Thursday:

There is a story the media missed in its reporting of Mitt Romney's humiliating loss in Iowa to the comparatively vastly under-funded Mike Huckabee: how a dogged "truth campaign" by pro- family advocates -- mostly from Romney's own state of Massachusetts -- to educate social conservatives on his liberal record on abortion and homosexuality helped seal his defeat.

Much as Romney tried to run away from his pro- abortion and pro-gay past -- and as hard as Romney backers like Hugh Hewitt and Jay Sekulow worked to paper over it and discredit his socially conservative critics -- the truth got out, cracking Romney's carefully-built facade.

While conservatives leaders tore into Mike Huckabee's record -- and appropriately knocked him for some past liberal policies -- there seemed to be a kid-gloves approach among most conservative media power-brokers toward Romney and his liberal social record.

Where were the Ann Coulter hit-pieces against the man who once promised that he could do more for Massachusetts homosexuals than Ted Kennedy?

Part of the silence stems from Romney's (present) strong rhetoric against "gay marriage," which obscures his past as a strongly pro- homosexual politician who supported "domestic partners" legislation in Massachusetts and failed to back the original state amendment that could have preserved marriage as between a man and a woman in Massachusetts.

Ironically, had Romney done the Reagan-esque thing and stood up to the Massachusetts judges on "gay marriage," he'd be a national hero now and running away with the nomination. Instead he went overboard the other way and needlessly (and illegally) passed out "same-sex marriage" licenses.

Romney continues to equivocate on homosexuality: why are pro-family leaders who have spent their lives fighting against homosexual activism now supporting a candidate who, despite experiencing firsthand the effects of radical pro- homosexual laws in Massachusetts -- legalized "same-sex marriage," state-enforced homosexual adoptions, and pro-homosexuality programs in pubic schools -- is still recommending gay 'special- rights' laws to other states? (Meet the Press interview, Dec. 16)

In addition to all his money -- and perhaps in large part because of it -- Romney has the backing of some key pro-life and pro-family leaders, such as Sekulow, Hewitt, pro-life attorney James Bopp and Rev. Lou Sheldon. But try as they might, these accomplished men cannot re- construct Romney's liberal social record.

"The Mitt Romney Deception" -- Mass Resistance's devastating report documenting Romney's long pro-abortion and pro-homosexual history -- is there for all to see.

The question remains: will "pro-family" Romney apologists respect the Republican pro-family grassroots enough to stop carrying water for a candidate who is widely regarded as a phony on the very issues -- life, marriage and preserving the natural family -- that are most important to them?

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Mainstream Media: "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?" & "Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy"

  Mainstream Media Acknowledges Biden’s “Arrogant” Sanctions On Russia Are Damning Americans:     @MaxBlumenthal Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy. His neocon policy accelerates the process of de-dollarization, diplomatic isolation & imperial decline. The mainstream new outlet asked "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?": Remember the claims that Russia’s economy was more or less irrelevant, merely the equivalent of a small, not very impressive European country? “Putin, who has an economy the size of Italy,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in 2014 after the invasion of Crimea, “[is] playing a poker game with a pair of twos and winning.” Of increasing Russian diplomatic and geopolitical influence in Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia, The Economist asked in 2019, “How did a country with an economy the size of Spain … ach
