“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” — Hebrews 12:1-2 Continue reading
I have no plans to vote for Bernie Sanders. I predict that the DNC will vote for Warren or Biden. But I also don’t believe in fear or gossip, and I believe in truth and distinctions. So let’s examine why we can be certain that if Bernie Sanders became president, the country would not become socialist. The same reason that, when Trump was elected, the country did not become a fascist regime. Continue reading
Ironically, Ken Starr recently declared that we are living in an “age of impeachment.”
I would hope so.
Starr went on to make a completely and entirely bogus claim, that only a statutory crime or lawbreaking was impeachable. Every law expert knows otherwise, and so did the founders. Continue reading
Here are some facts about immigration. I invite you to check them yourself.
In 1934 the Supreme Court ruled that to declare a national emergency a situation must be urgent, infrequent, and unexpected.
Illegal immigration is not infrequent, nor is it unexpected. If it was not urgent 10 years ago when it occurred more often, it is not urgent now. Continue reading
As the United States Constitution was ratified, A “Bill of Rights” was added in the form of the first 10 amendments. The first of these gives protection to the people against the government making any law abridging the freedom of speech and of the press. Along with this is the guaranteed right to address the government with grievances. Continue reading
Winston Churchill is often quoted as having said, “We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out.”
How true that is. The words we say sometimes become the words we must later eat. If they turn out to be true, they must apply to us. If they turn out to be false, then we are proven false. Either way, our words we must eat.
This weekend the American public witnessed a government shutdown, the first in 5 years. This is the first time in U.S. history that a government shutdown has occurred while the White House, Senate, and House of Reps. all being controlled by a single party. The shutdown is still ongoing.

“And I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular positions I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense?”

This week, if we learned anything about America, it’s that we have a country out of touch with itself.
This past week, Pepsi tried a commercial in which a high fructose carbonated soda can bring the entire country together by solving racial differences. How? By reinforcing racial stereotypes.
Some preachers have concluded that because Nehemiah built a wall for the Lord, and President Trump wants to build a wall for America, that somehow Trump’s wall is the will of God and Christians must support the effort, because Trump is God’s Nehemiah for America. Because Nehemiah and because a wall.
“For years, as a conservative radio talk show host, I played a role in [conditioning] by hammering the mainstream media for its bias and double standards. But the price turned out to be far higher than I imagined. The cumulative effect of the attacks was to delegitimize those outlets and essentially destroy much of the right’s immunity to false information.
