Trump Impeachment II: George Washington Warned About Political Factions

Maybe it’s just me, but I am starting to come to the conclusion that Nancy Pelosi just doesn’t like former President Donald Trump. She seems to have been the driving force behind Trump Impeachment II. Jeff Charles of Red State calls it: “the Democrats’ new production of ‘An Impeachment Story Part II: Maybe It’ll Work […]

Biden’s Excessive Executive Orders

Within his first two weeks in office, President Biden has signed an unprecedented number of executive orders—47. Writing for Quartz (1/31/21), Amanda Shendruk notes, “Joe Biden has been US president for less than two weeks and has already issued nearly as many executive action as Trump and Obama did in the same period, combined.” [Emphasis […]

Won’t Know Much About History

The old song said, “Don’t Know Much About History.” But if Joe Biden gets his way, we could revise the title to “Won’t Know Much About History.” One of the last things outgoing-President Trump did was to sign an executive order on the 1776 Commission. It is geared toward teaching American school children about America’s […]

Law and Disorder

Americans were shocked by the assault on the U. S. Capitol that took place on January 6th, ostensibly by Trump supporters. The US Capitol Police Chief, who has since resigned, stated: “The violent attack on the U.S. Capitol was unlike any I have ever experienced in my 30 years in law enforcement here in Washington, […]

A Worthy Goal for the New Year

Apparently fewer Americans are reading the Bible daily. A Barna study on behalf of the American Bible Society came out a few months ago (during the time of COVID-19) that showed a drop in the number of Americans who claim to read the Bible every day—from 14 percent to 9 percent. That seems strange since […]

Is Going to Church “High Risk, Low Reward?”

Some leftist government officials, in the name of trying to fight the spread of COVID-19, have come down hard on churches. For example, California Governor Gavin Newsom declared (5/7/20), “We’re looking at the science, epidemiology, looking again at frequency, duration, time, and looking at low risk-high reward, low risk-low reward.” [Emphasis added] He has defined […]

American History Down the Memory Hole?

Last week we celebrated Thanksgiving, but is this holiday becoming so politically incorrect that one day it will be doomed to be sent down the “memory hole”? There is a war on American history. Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Antifa and other leftwing groups toppled more historical statues. Tyler O’Neil of PJ Media (11/28/20) describes the […]

Religious Freedom at Risk

400 years ago this month, a weary band of Christians from England came ashore in New England after a grueling 66-day voyage aboard the Mayflower. The Pilgrims came for one purpose, which they spelled out in writing: “for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.” It was all about religious freedom. […]

Election Integrity vs Election Theft

This is not a banana republic. This is the United States of America. Here we are on the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower Compact (November 11, 1620)—the document that initiated American democracy that culminated in the Constitution and our freedoms. And yet election integrity is at risk. How this is resolved may well determine what […]

Power Versus Empowerment

On the ballot this election season are two different visions for America: government power vs. empowerment of people. The choice is ultimately between politicians who seek to confiscate and redistribute wealth (creating a perpetual underclass that’s dependent on government) on the one hand, or those who empower the individual, on the other hand, enabling us […]
