The link between climate and poverty
“It is more a gale than a fresh breeze,” Pope exclaimed, “when the most ground-breaking pope since John XXIII links poverty and climate.” In his post titled “How Pope Francis’s Climate Encyclical is Disrupting American Politics,” Pope pronounces: “Something fundamental is shifting this summer in political and cultural attitudes around the climate.”

HOW SHOULD A GREAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BE CHOSEN?
Over the course of my life as a business person and stock holder I have always been drawn to watching shows about business. My favorite episodes were always the ones featuring highly successful business people like Jack Welch, Steve Jobs and others in the hope of learning a smidgen of the knowledge they have developed in their campaign lifetime.

The Most Dangerous Man in America
In an interview with talk-show host Mark Levin on May 5th, presidential candidate Ben Carson answered this question: “If you were president today, what are three of the things you might want to accomplish quickly?” His answer began with a sentence unique among the 2016 hopefuls, to this writer’s knowledge: Carson replied, “Well, I want to look at the things that are likely to destroy | Read More »
Supreme Court Aligns with the Left in Assault on First Amendment Religious Rights
USA Today calls Friday’s legalizing of gay marriage by the Supreme Court “A victory for America.” It is in fact an attack on America, in its very fiber, by the American Left. Consider Obama’s damaging of the Constitution’s balance of powers by repeated (unopposed) intrusions into Congress’s domain; his dismantling of border enforcement and legalization of millions unlawfully in America—financed by Congress; his incitement of | Read More »
Yanked Around By Marionette Strings…
Fourteen months ago I posted this on my old, rarely updated blog: “… we are on very dangerous ground right now. On a global/government-led scale, it showed itself with the NSA and IRS scandals. On a societal/mob-mentality level, it showed itself with Chick-fil-A, Elaine Huguenin, Brendan Eich, George Zimmerman, Cliven Bundy, Donald Sterling, etc. (and all the hypocritical double-standards that are in stark contrast). You play with fire, | Read More »
Adios America: Review of Coulter’s New Book
Goodbye to the prosperous country founded by overwhelmingly Protestant colonists in the 18thcentury. Hello to the third-world multicultural mélange with a distinctly Mexican accent, appalling cultural norms, and a clearly leftist political orientation. Such is the vision of the United States given by no-holds-barred pundit Ann Coulter in her latest book, Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole. | Read More »
The 2016 GOP presidential field needs a “rabbit.”
Most people can correctly identify Roger Bannister as the man who first ran a mile in under 4 minutes, in 1954. I expect nobody can recognize the names Chris Bracher and Chris Chataway. The two served as pacemakers, or “rabbits” for Banister’s accomplishment. They set the pace in the early laps, allowing Bannister to focus early on just the mechanics of running free and easy, | Read More »
Thank You Ted Cruz
So, apparently the Constitution affirms the right for any two people to apply for and receive a marriage license from the state regardless of little things like whether it is possible for the relationship by nature to produce citizenry (the entire reason for recognizing and privileging marriage in the first place). Thus we have in 11 years turned the entirety of human civilization on its | Read More »
Jesus never taught “tolerance” – A look back
It was just a little over two years ago that Jason Collins, a washed-up NBA player nearing the end of his career and looking for some cheap publicity, announced to the world in a Sports Illustrated interview that he was “a 34-year-old NBA center” who was “black” and “gay.” In the interview, as he tried to justify his sexually deviant lifestyle, he reflected on the | Read More »
The Question Before Religious Organizations: God or Mammon?
“No one can be the slave of two masters; such a slave will hate one and love the other or will be loyal to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Luke 16:13 The ruling by the SCOTUS on Friday will undoubtedly result in an assault on religious freedom in this country. This is not speculation or hysteria. The possibility | Read More »
Marriage Policies in America Similar to Communist China
It’s astounding to review the requirements to be legally married in America. Even more astounding is the reality that Americans, and especially Christians, comply with them. Worse still— Christians continue to demand that the government regulate a predominantly Christian practice. (Monogamous heterosexual marriage is a unique New Testament Christian concept. Nearly all non-Christian faiths advocate polygamy and pedophilia as part of acceptable social marriage norms.) | Read More »
Let’s Make All Non-Political Giving Tax-Deductible
Time Magazine wasted no time in calling for the end of tax exemptions for religious institutions, with writer Mark Oppenheimer firing the initial salvo. Oppenheimer writes the “beliefs” column for The New York Times, in which he studies religious matters with the alacrity of a medical examiner performing an autopsy: God is dead, let’s find out what killed Him. I have a different view on the | Read More »
Aren’t We Yet Tired of the Feds Being Totally Wrong – Or Lying to Us?
Gassy assertions by government officials are, of course, a given. Very few groups of people are more wrong, more consistently – yet with more confidence – than the people who lord over us. There are only two possible explanations. They are either really, really ill informed and naive. Or they know they’re wrong – and they are each respectively lying both of their faces off. | Read More »
Obamacare, Gay Marriage and Disparate Impact – 25 Hours Which Will Live in Infamy
When historians look back on the collapse of the United States and seek to pinpoint the beginning of the end, they will no doubt look to the election of Barack Obama to the presidency. If they want to narrow the focus they will point to the period of his reign between 10:00 AM June 25th and 11:00 AM June 26th. [mc_name name=’Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’ | Read More »
Battle for the House 2016: The June Edition
AK-at large: Rep. Don Young (R-AK) 49% has not had a serious challenger in a primary since 2008, but that may change and it would be to his advantage. With both Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller considering a primary run, state senator Pruitt is making noise and may enter the fray. With a crowded field with so many big name items, a split | Read More »
