Joe Biden has made Catholic outreach a major part of his presidential campaign.
One of his biggest campaign boosters, “Catholics for Biden”, has attempted to make the case for Biden on Catholic lines.
Matt Hadro of the Catholic News Agency noted that this group has repeatedly said that “Biden’s priorities align with those of Pope Francis.”
Funny enough, Biden supports federal funding for abortion which goes against Catholic doctrine.
On September 3, 2020, Catholics for Biden held a launch event online. Some of the speakers present at the event included Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, Sister Simone Campbell, and Dr. Stephen Schneck, the former Director of Catholic University’s Institute for Policy Research Studies. Back in 2012, he viewed U.S. bishops’ concerns about the HHS birth control mandate as “overblown.”
The speakers at this online event implored Catholics not to emphasize pro-life issues when they go to the ballot box despite Biden’s promise to support taxpayer-funded abortion and pass official legislation that nationalizes abortion. In addition, the “public option” health care plan features coverage of elective abortions.
Pro-abortion groups such as the National Abortion Rights Action League endorsed his presidential candidacy, while Planned Parenthood Action Fund expressed joy for Biden’s selection of California Senator Kamala Harris as his vice-presidential candidate.
According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops document “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship”, abortion is described as a “preeminent” threat to human life. The document recognizes that there are many ways to attack human dignity, but it stressed how some people try to warn against a false “moral equivalence that makes no ethical distinctions between different kinds of issues involving human life and dignity.”
By contrast, Catholics for Biden’s voting material encourages voters to downplay abortion and focus on other issues. It put forward the concept of a “Pope Francis Voter”, an individual who “considers racism, poverty, migration and healthcare as ‘sacred issues’ to be prioritized in the voting booth,” according to Hadro’s CNA piece.
Sister Simone Campbell heads the Network, a social justice activist organization, and was the prayer leader at the 2020 Democratic National Convention. Hadro recounted that Campbell was asked in an interview with CNA if her organization is against the legalization of abortion.
In a recent interview with CNA, Campbell was asked if her organization opposes legal abortion. “That is not our issue. That is not it. It is above my pay grade,” she responded.
The social justice organization is a Biden booster because the presidential candidate “supports families in the tax code;” is opposed to racism and xenophobia, the death penalty, and “discrimination against LGBTQ+ people and disabled people.” Furthermore, Hadro highlighted that Biden’s support of “housing assistance, health care benefits, the right to organize, and humane treatment of immigrants” are just more reasons why the Network is getting behind the Biden campaign.
On the other hand, Catholic conservative organizations such as “Catholics for Trump” attacked Biden for his pro-abortion record and anti-religious freedom voting behavior.
The Trump campaign’s Catholic voter outreach campaign started focusing on Trump’s moves to select federal judges who eschewed judicial activism, enact pro-life policies and measures to uphold religious freedom, and his successful economic track record.
Catholic voters will need to wake up and realize that Biden is a paragon of political correctness who will advance many of the radical Left’s agenda items. No serious Catholic voter who believes in pro-life policies and respects religious freedom should even consider voting for Biden.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
