Texit – can Texas regain its independence?

Flag of Texas - or Texit

The 2020s now appear to be the Decade of the Exit. The United Kingdom started it, with Brexit – the exit of Britain from the European Union. Not until 2020 did the UK finalize their exit, but they did it. In America, “Calexit” would have broken the mold—except that the “election” of Joe Biden made it unnecessary. Yet a movement to create a “New California” apart from the big (and neocommunist) cities of Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco continues to attract followers. Elsewhere, eastern counties of Oregon want to join Idaho. Likewise, western Maryland counties and rural Virginia counties want to join West Virginia. But no movement will likely get as much attention as Texit – an attempt by Texans to regain their independence.

Rambam and Aliyah to the Temple Mount

Tomb of the Rambam (Maimonides)

Earlier in the week, the 20th of Tevet, marked the Yom Hillula (day of festivity) or Yahrtzeit, of the Rambam (Maimonides). He died in 1204. So, I thought it would be interesting to look at a major event in his life, that might have been missed by some, back at the end of October.

Racial obsession

John F. Kennedy as President. Racial obsession began after his death, long before Obama.

Hello this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle report. Today is Friday the 4th day of December in the year 2020 and on this report I will be talking about how the country has changed fundamentally over the last 60 years to the point where it seems obsessed by race and racial politics. Before I start, I will tell you that the Castle family had a wonderful Thanksgiving considering we were separated by thousands of miles because of the virus. Joan and I had a zoom dinner with the family daughter from her home in Los Angeles.

Christians: The Forefathers Appeal Was To Jesus – Heaven Not To Their Favorite Politicians!

Christians made an Appeal to Heaven. Heavenly-minded much?

Christians appealed to heaven, not any one politician, when they founded the United States. Modern Americans need to remember that.

Toledot: Jewish Genealogy

A toledah - plural toledot - from ancient Mesopotamia

“And these are the generations of Isaac, the son of Abraham; Abraham begot Isaac,” (Genesis 25:19). That’s how this week’s Torah reading, Toledot, starts out. Genealogy is important to Jews. We know who our progenitors are, and we honor them.

The Destruction of Cities

This B-32 Dominator never figured in the destruction of any cities, but perhaps in photographing them.

Destruction of cities usually figures in war. But it can also occur, and far more quickly, through political malfeasance. Like New York today.

The real reason the Beit HaMikdash was destroyed

The Temple Mount, all that's left of the Beit HaMikdash or Temple, remains a constant source of contention.

“Any generation in which the Beit HaMikdash [the Temple] was not rebuilt in their days, it’s considered as if they destroyed it.” (Talmud Yerushalmi Yoma 5a).

The barbarians are inside the palace

The barbarians have indeed entered the palace, fostering civil disorder and engaging in extreme debauchery. But now Americans begin to notice.

The Truth is a Precious Commodity

Direct attack on truth. Americans should be furious to see this. Political predators made it happen.

Hello this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. Today I will be talking about the growing levels of anarchy and violence in America. In addition, we will look for the truth and examine why it is sometimes hard to grasp.
