Pope Francis in Brazil

Answering Pope Francis

Pope Francis kept alive the main tradition of the Roman Catholic Church: compromise. Specifically he offered the familiar compromise between creation and evolution. But what he said will likely please no one. More »

Can you explain America?

Picture this: You’re going to be meeting with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. They want to know what has happened to America. What will you say?

Silk Road notes 4: learning

Silk Road caravan

This fourth instalment of the Silk Road Notes series shows the distorted picture the Cleveland Museum’s Silk Road exhibit gives to the development of writing and learning along that ancient trade route. As ever, this exhibit gives credit to Muslims for developing real learning. In fact, the credit is due, not to the Muslims, but to the cultures they conquered.

Seal of the Islamic State. Is Obama their secret ally, sowing complacency to give this State time to build?

The people of America, Republicans, Independents and yes, even Democrats once again have been placed in future danger by this renegade government.  Yesterday the House of Representatives and the United States Senate voted to once again fund and arm terrorists who will in very short order, turn those weapons on Americans.

America at war with God

Bradlee Dean discusses what poverty in America often looks like.

And what cause soever shall come to you of your brethren that dwell in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and judgments, ye shall even warn them that they trespass not against the LORD, and so wrath come upon you, and upon your brethren: this do, and ye shall not trespass.

– 2 Chronicles 19:10

We can see in America today that the church is countering their very purpose on this earth. Rather than the light reproving the darkness (Ephesians 5:11), we now have the church spreading the darkness as they attempt to put out the light.

Third Amendment case law

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

The Nevada case of Mitchell v. City of Henderson still slogs through the Nevada Federal District Court. This case has one unusual feature. It accuses police in two cities of quartering themselves in two private houses without the consent of their owners. This would breach the Third Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which deals with quartering of soldiers. The defendant city officials say police officers are not soldiers. But the Mitchells actually have a thirty-two-year-old precedent on their side. That case says one need not be an active-duty U.S. armed service member to be a “soldier” under the Constitution.

Blessings not realized

Revelation includes blessings, and a curse on this city.

It is widely believed that the Book of Revelation is confusing, not understandable, and divisive. As a result, it is seldom taught from America’s pulpits. It should be noted that prophecies account for nearly one third of the Bible. Therefore, disregarding prophecies yet to be fulfilled is truly a disservice to believers who are admonished to know the entirety of the Bible.

Second Amendment in N.J.

The Second Amendment is the reset button on the Constitution

It is time for the Executive and Legislative branches of New Jersey to adhere to the U.S. Constitution. No, it is long past the time.  For far too long we the citizens of the State of New Jersey have been victims of a progressive police state.  “We the People” are being denied the civil right to protect ourselves, our families and our property, as a direct result of unconstitutional behavior and legislation enacted by our elected and appointed officials.

Is the Constitution dead?

Constitution Day meme. Can Liberty Amendments serve that purpose?

Today we celebrate the 227th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution and ask the question, “is the Constitution dead?” Has it survived despite the many years of degradation it has suffered or did it succumb long ago?

The new anti-ethics

Forty years ago last month, President Richard M. Nixon resigned his office. No American President had ever resigned before. None has done so since. Furthermore, several of Nixon’s men went to jail. And only because they lied about a third-rate burglary in a political rival’s office. The country had a strong sense of ethics then. (Or so we thought.) Where is that ethics today? Or has a new anti-ethics taken its place? A new moral code that rewards those who promise “bread and circuses,” and no one cares whether anyone in government lies or not?

Obama advising Islamic State?

Jim Geraghty writes a daily newsletter for National Review. He calls it Morning Jolt. This morning he gave a “jolt” to his readers. He recalled a feature article in Sunday’s New York Times with interviews from several favored persons who sat down recently with de facto President Barack H. Obama. During that sit-down, Obama seemed to give free advice to the “Islamic State.” Does Barack Obama now let would-be new States consult him on how to run a war? If so, he might have given the Islamic State the best advice he could have given them, advice in keeping with their real goals. And that only compounds his treason.

Silk Road notes 3: glass

These notes on the Silk Road exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History continue with a discussion of glass and ceramics. Again the exhibit gives a false impression: that glassmaking and pottery began, or at least were most closely associated, with Islam.
