    Decoding Obama: No, Muslims Did Not Found America

    Obama recently claimed, “Islam has been woven into the fabric of America since its founding.” This is both true and false. It is true in the sense that Islam posed a threat to America’s early existence. The North African Islamic Barbary Pirates proved to be a significant impetus towards uniting a divided colonial delegation to sign the Constitution and strengthen their Navy and Marine Corps. | Read More »

    Barack Hussein Obama is Not Just Unfit as Commander in Chief, He’s Guilty of Treason

    Governor Bobby Jindal recently asserted that Barack Obama “is unfit to be commander in chief.” He’s half right. America’s situation is dire because Obama is also guilty of aiding, abetting, harboring, and funding known enemies to America. Obama created, funds, and used the U.S. military to train ISIS in Jordan and Qatar. Even one of ISIS’s leaders, Yousef al-Salafi in Pakistan, told reporters that, “the | Read More »

    An Open Letter to Rachel Maddow about my trip to Israel

    Dear Rachel, I’d like to set the record straight about my recent headline-making trip to Israel and clarify that Bryan Fischer’s remarks do not represent David Lane, and most importantly do not represent the pastors to whom he ministers or the many Christians like myself who follow Jesus Christ. Let me also clarify, I am neither a Republican National Committee member nor a registered Republican. | Read More »

    The Truth about my Headline-making trip to Israel

    Truth matters. That’s why during the lunch hour at a northern Israeli kibbutz, I skipped a group event to set the record straight about the first few days of myheadline-making trip in Israel. It seems that those vilifying it are misinformed. I’ve been traveling with people who represent many faiths, ethnicities, ages, and even have friends and relatives whose lifestyles and/or political beliefs are quite different than | Read More »

    Nazi Holocaust: Incomparable to Muhammad’s Plan for Jews

    Commemorating the anniversary of Auschwitz’s liberation is important. But remembering without action is irrelevant. The reality is that in America more hate crimes are committed against Jews than all other groups combined, according to a recently released FBI report. Internationally, eradicating Jews and Israel is integral to Islam. Muslims believe, according to the Qur’an that worldwide Islamic rule will only occur once Israel is destroyed | Read More »

    A Tale of Two City Protests: Sharia in Dallas vs. Christian Prayer in Baton Rouge

    On January 17th Sound Vision Foundation, a Chicago-based 501 (C) 3 organization held a “Stand with the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas, a suburb outside of Dallas, at the Curtis Culwell Center on Independent School District property. The event, permitted by the Superintendent of Public Schools, launched a Strategic Communication Center for Muslims to advocate censoring and criminalizing non-Muslim speech. Sound Vision asks: “Frustrated with | Read More »

    Christian Ministers Leading from the Front: In and Out of the Pulpit

    Ministers have always been at the forefront of leading America, calling upon God for mercy, guidance, wisdom, and revival. Historically, they led both in and out of the pulpit—spawning the American Revolution, opposing slavery and organizing the Underground Railroad, actively registering people to vote, supporting civil rights, prison reform, and poverty legislation, and fighting in war and/or serving as military chaplains. Because every area of | Read More »

    As Christianity exits Europe, ‘Criminal Muslims’ fill void with rabid violence

    History provides ample evidence of ways in which the local church provides continuity, encouragement and support of family life and societal freedoms. It also reveals what happens when churches close: societal structures erode, crime escalates, and freedoms evaporate. Throughout Europe, tens of thousands of churches have been torn down, sold and repurposed due to an 80-90 percent drop in attendance. Non-attendance is indicative of negative population growth and sub-replacement fertility | Read More »

    “Criminal Muslim” Ideology is Freedomphobic, Christianphobic, and Anti-Semitic

    Westerners must identify Islamic threats to their existence if not for the only reason that they themselves and their way of life are identified as the primary threat to Sharia. Muslims worldwide identify their problem: Kūffar, the non-believer, those who reject Allah, or are otherwise known as “infidel.” I am Kāfir. I reject Islam as a religion and as anything remotely close to a peaceful | Read More »

    “Moderate Muslims” Are Irrelevant to America and the World

    Many argue terrorist attacks are committed by extremists. However, as I have repeatedly argued a small minority has always been responsible for implementing violent ideology to overtake the “peaceful” and “moderate” majority. Consider this: of the 1.2 billion Muslims worldwide, national security organizations estimate “radical Muslims” account for 15-25 percent. That equates to approximately 180-300 million “Radical Muslims,” nearly the entire population of the United | Read More »
