Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) had to take a stand recently. He spoke to a group and mentioned Israel as America’s ally. Some attendees shouted him down, and he walked away. But what More »

ISIS v. ISIL: does it matter?

To most Americans, Obama’s use of the term ISIL instead of ISIS is a bit curious. It is widely acknowledged that ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria while More »

This earth which God has given mankind sits in a vast universe, mingled with and obscured by trillions of other planets and stars spread out over unimaginable distances.  It is still unknown if this gift, this planet and its people, are unique or if hundreds or millions of other earths with His children are dwelling in locations so remote that they may forever remain undiscovered.

Egomaniac and Ignoramus

The Obama birth certificate. Why is this still accepted as valid?

Egomaniac:  one who has an obsessive preoccupation with one’s self, i.e., one who is intolerably self-centered.

Ignoramus:  a person who does not know much: an ignorant or stupid person.

Several weeks ago Bill O’Reilly revisited the issue of Obama’s birth certificate during the viewer letter segment of his cable news program on Fox.

James Risen v. Obama

Presidents are supposed to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. Can an executive order violate that oath?
Print Friendly

James Risen, old-line reporter for The New York Times, thought the world changed in 2009. Like nearly everyone else at The New York Times (where he worked) and similar papers, he expected Barack Hussein Obama to change the world. Now at least a President would not only respect confidential sources but also take down the apparatus of State secrets. How wrong he was!

Militarized police go too far

The events of the last eight days in Ferguson, Missouri have called the country’s attention to a disturbing trend. America now has the most militarized police it has ever had. Like all ideas that threaten liberty, militarized police began innocently enough. But the public and the media are at least paying attention. So, one hopes, are enough Representatives and Senators

Ferguson: hope for peace?

Riots and looting broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, again last night. But then a dozen people did something that offers hope. When the police dared not interfere, they protected the stores that had come under attack. That shows the people in the community want peace, not the race war someone is trying to provoke.

Reason: faith’s greatest enemy

“When valor preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.”

Over the past year I have noticed that the spirit of America has gone from bravery, valor, courage and “these colors do not run” to the best that conservatives have (Fox News) stating that, “They are coming for us.” As if to say that there is nothing 312 million armed-to-the-teeth people can do about a bunch of coward devils with swords in hand.

Ferguson: more confusion

OTher than police, what should governemnt do for people?

Yesterday Ferguson, Missouri got a new commander-on-the-scene in charge  of policing: Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol.  He and Chief Jackson of the Ferguson Police Department released a lot of information today. They must have thought they’d answer everyone’s questions. They thought wrong.

Asking for martial law?

Regular readers know the United States Department of Justice has prepared for martial law for years. They have placed up-armored Army and Marine surplus vehicles with police departments and sheriff’s offices, large and small. And you, the taxpayer, have paid for this excess. Of course some police department would use those vehicles for some totally unnecessary “bad-ass” policing. But could anyone say ahead of time that a United States Representative would ask for martial law?

Islam and Iraq in Prophecy

An illustration of prophecy

Since many do not study prophecy and others believe there isn’t any need to since we will all be swept away before the period referred to as “The Tribulation” begins, they do not recognize the prophetic events unfolding before our very eyes. Before proceeding, it is necessary to stress that we can recognize the signs of the times but we cannot accurately predict how end time prophecies will play out or the specific dates of these occurrences.

Robin Williams, R.I.P.

The world lost two of the greatest acting talents who ever lived and worked over the last forty-eight hours. Robin Williams tragically strangled himself. Lauren Bacall suffered a stroke and died. For hard-to-fathom reasons, Robin Williams gets more attention than does Lauren Bacall. (He did have four movie projects going when he died. (One of them, a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire, might never bear fruit.) That, as much as how he died, might be why the world still talks about Robin Williams at the time of this writing.
