NOT TRYING TO START A WAR, BUT I HAVE QUESTIONS…


Let me say at the outset, I am not trying to increase the divide between those who are pro-vaccine and those who are anti-vaccine.  I have said from the beginning, that I view this as a personal choice.  I believe that it is none of my business, your business, or the government’s business who is and who is not vaccinated.  I view it as a matter that each individual must assess through their own research and in prayer.  If you feel good about it, then do it.  If you do not, then be at peace and follow your heart.  I know that some on both sides will find that repulsive and may seek to castigate and vilify me.  Please don’t.  You want to be respected for your choice, so I ask that you respect others for theirs.

If we are honest, there are some discrepancies that should raise questions.  I, for one, am unable to blindly accept whatever the CDC, the WHO, the so-called experts (who disagree), and the White House on this matter.  I am not saying the threat is not as serious as the White House and Dr. Fauci are claiming.  However, if it is then why did the White House turn down a proposal that would have added more than 730 million at-home COVID tests to the market per month? 

They have suggested that they are going to seek to bolster rapid home tests through the “FDA’s regulatory approval process.”  I find that incredibly interesting since that was not the approach to rush the vaccine to market.  If tests will help to identify those positive and allow them to seek early treatment, why would it not be desirable to supply adequate test kits?

The administration even suggested that the United States, “Did not have the capacity to manufacture over-the-counter tests at that scale.”  Seriously?  Why Not?  If we have the capacity to produce the vaccine, why not the test kits?  Is there a reason to not allow citizens to test themselves in their own homes which would result in more tests being done?  Is it more lucrative and controllable to test people at a control site than at their own discretion at home?  I don’t know the answer, but with a minimum of $13,000 provided to hospitals for each positive test, I wonder.

Former Customs and Border Protection commissioner, Mark Morgan reported that this administration allowed 600,000 migrants to illegally enter the United States without testing or mandating them to be vaccinated?  Why one policy for the illegals and another for law-abiding citizens?  At least one reason for such a high number of illegal entrants is that 60-70% of our Border Patrol have been pulled off the front lines.  None of them are being screened for COVID or any other disease, so it seems.  Why?  If COVID is the threat they insist, and it may be, why would they not insist on testing those coming here legally or illegally?

The insistence of a Vaccine Passport is troubling on many levels, and I view it as a direct conflict with the constitutional guarantees for Americans.  It smacks with tyrannical despotism and something that is done in Authoritarian Dictatorships around the world, not Free America.  But alas, that is the call and more citizens than I am comfortable with endorse such a move.  I am reminded of Benjamin Franklin’s assertion: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”  At what level of usurpation of our Freedoms will we draw the line in the sand?  The Bible says that “God has not given us the spirit of fear…”  (2 Timothy 1:7).

Are we entering an era in America where we have to show our papers to the modern Gestapo to participate in a Free Society?  Is that freedom?  That is easily a precursor and conditioning tool for the entrance of the Mark of the Book of Revelation.  I did not say this was the mark!   Alarmingly, this plan is being rolled out around the world and in some, heretofore, democratic republics.  It is being implemented in some large U.S. cities such as Washington, D.C., New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.  Others would and probably will if these are allowed to stand.  Those with much power are seizing and amassing even more.  Is that the objective?

The World Health Organization published a guide for this process in August 2021.  The title of this guidance is Technical Specifications and Implementation Guidance on Digital Documentation of Covid-19 Certificates.  That sounds like a Pandora’s Box that will lead us to Biblical prophecies that none of us desire to embrace or should not desire to embrace.  It is designed to give commonality for the countries issuing these passports so they can mesh together and network globally.  Who paid for this?  Guess who?  The Bill Gates Foundation and four other funders.

I have never ascribed to the vaccine being the Mark of the Beast, but this is a precursor to anesthetizing people into accepting that kind of event.  It is a forerunner to digital money and a cashless society.  It is a forerunner to tracking every human being on the planet and may even reach the place where we are arrested for potential crimes against humanity or the government before we commit them.  Is that freedom? 

If Covid-19 is dangerous enough to require such austere measures, would it not behoove the government to provide at-home tests for every household.  Would it not behoove the government to make every treatment that has any measure of success available to people at the very outset of symptoms?  Why wait until the person has pneumonia and is incapable of breathing requiring intubation from which few survive?  Why not be proactive rather than reactive? 

The guidance and those pursuing the Vaccine Mandate insist that the vax pass system cannot work if there is a critical mass of people who come together and decide not to use it.  A critical mass!  Interesting and they include both vaccinated and unvaccinated in that equation.  Our federal government is a government by the ‘consent of the people’ not by the ‘coercion of the people.’  If we lose that we lose our freedom.  Again, even if this virus is as dangerous and threatening as they are proclaiming, dare we lose our freedom trying to stop a virus that cannot be seen and penetrates everywhere? 

We have endured pandemics in our history and survived without shutting the world down or mandating that every person comply and have papers to prove their compliance to travel, do commerce, or work?  Is that America?  Will these mandates precipitate the most massive and inclusive Civil Rights movement in our time?

Even a CBS News correspondent has blasted the crushing COVID lockdown policies on kids saying, “They have suffered and sacrificed the most.”  The mental stability of children and adults living under draconian mandates and isolation is yet to be fully investigated.  What we know now is that the suicide rate has increased, family violence has increased, drug addiction and alcoholism have increased.  Is it possible that the draconian tyranny being imposed in the mandates and lockdowns doing more damage than the virus we are seeking to escape?

This correspondent cited statistical data for the scientific community that healthy teens have a “one-in-a-million” chance of catching and dying from the coronavirus.  They have a greater chance of dying in a car crash than COVID.  She cited the statistical data that suicide attempts among girls have risen 51% this past year.  Also, black children are nearly twice as likely to die by suicide as whites.  What are we doing? 

My plea is sanity and civility.  We can accomplish anything if we will work together, talk to each other, and not divide up in camps making people of our own household the enemy.  If we will turn to God and seek His guidance and help, we can overcome this pandemic.  If we will insist that the federal government be “by consent of the people” rather than by ‘coercion’ we can overcome.  Remember in 2022 when you vote where the candidates and their parties stand on the issues and VOTE!

I urge each person to follow their hearts and listen for the guidance of the Spirit of God in this and all matters!

God bless you and God bless America!

AMERICA IS IN DEEP EXCREMENT…


Yes, I said it and that is exactly what I see.  I try to look at things realistically from a biblical view. I attempt to take what God has said in His Word and apply His Words to my life and my world.  That frequently places me in the crosshairs of those on the Left, the P.C. Police, and those who mistakenly position themselves as pacificists in the name of tolerance. 

I am often told that if we would just show the Love of God, we will eventually win those on the other side to become morally right in their lives and views.  To that I say, as have others, to take that position you have to dismiss well over half of the New Testament.  We are to be salt and light.  If we are to be light, we have to bring truth to the table and present it articulately.  I believe the directive that was given in 1 Peter 3:15 – “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.”  ESV.

Sadly, those on both sides of the issue are taking positions of vilification rather than reconciliation.  We don’t listen carefully and fully.  We listen until we hear something we do not like, and we lash out.  That is destructive, not productive.  I am not suggesting that we abandon our convictions and beliefs, but that we counter with a godlike demeanor and soften our words, not our message.

Why do I say that America is in deep excrement?  One of the many reasons is the utter failure of both the Supreme Court and Congress.  Their actions on so many fronts indicate that they are either ignorant of the constitution or have chosen to ignore it.  We could rehash the many failures of both, but the latest involves the COVID mandates.  I don’t care which side of the vaccination issue you fall on this should be of interest to you. 

The case, National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) v. Department of Labor (OSHA) which mandates that employers with at least 100 persons must submit to the vaccination or be regularly tested.  That mandate applied to 84 million workers.  This was to provide a pathway for the administration to regulate business without congressional legislation.  That is a usurpation of both the 10th amendment and our personal liberty and freedom guaranteed by the constitution. 

It seems that the frequent waffler Chief Justice Roberts believed that the government had overreached stating that COVID mitigation policies would best be left to the states and Congress.  Justice Neil Gorsuch endorsed that view.  In the discussion, Justice Stephen Breyer made the Bidenesque claim that was “750 million new cases yesterday, or close to it, that is a lot.”  He seemed to forget that there are only 334 million Americans and he insisted that vaccines and masks would prevent 100% of coronavirus infections.  WOW!  With that wisdom, I believe you can see why I suggest the deep excrement.

But Breyer’s idiotic assertion was surpassed by Justice Sonia Sotomayor.  She compared human beings to machines.  She said, “Why is a human being not like a machine if it’s spewing a virus, blood-borne viruses?” She falsely claimed that there were 100,000 children in serious condition from COVID-19.  The inconvenient truth as reported by the Health and Human Services confirmed that pediatric hospitalizations were 3,342.  Justice Sotomayor, where do you get your facts?  I know, you got the talking points of the Leftists and regurgitated them.  That is not what you are to do as a Supreme Court Justice.  You are to be apolitical in your view.  You are to judge according to the constitution, not personal ideology.

To take this a step further the sitting president, Joe Biden, and his Democratic cohorts have mastered the art of psychological projection.  They seem to be incapable of recognizing the truth and displaying honesty, so they accuse the Republicans, Conservatives, and Christians who hold to biblical moral standards of practicing their own sins.  Whatever you hear them accusing the other side of is usually what they are guilty of. 

Mr. Biden accused Trump and his supports of being those who seek to ‘dismantle our democracy.’  Congressman Eric Swalwell, D-California offered his lament, “I’m worried that if Republicans win the midterm elections, that voting in this country as we know it will be gone.”  Congressman, that is exactly what your side is trying to do, end voting and become an oligarchy or dictatorship.  Again, they spout lies, hysteria, paranoia, and play on the fears of those who are ill-informed or uninformed.

Another factor in our placement in the excrement is a new poll that shows only 11% of adults (I say that loosely) believe that Joe Biden is a strong leader.  Someone said, “That same 11% believe that Tiger Woods is a scary place for a picnic.”  On the other side of that coin, 57% consider him to be a weak leader. 

The president’s comments on the events of January 6, 2021, included the declaration that we are in a battle for the soul of America.  He is right but not for the reasons he cited.  He is pitting one side against another rather than seeking to find common ground, open discussion, or any semblance of tolerance.  He is, by his rhetoric inciting a civil war in America.  If you disagree with him or them, they claim that you are an insurrectionist, anarchist, racist, homophobic pig and need to be reeducated or eradicated. 

I do not make New Year’s Resolutions but take the opportunity at the beginning of each year to reflect on the year passed and seek to chart a better course.  I look for opportunities rather than focusing on failures or difficulties.  In the past year, we were inundated with fearmongering and there was a genuine attempt to strip us of our American Spirit.  Patriotism was in the crosshairs as were the home, family, morals, and anything conservative.  

If we do not return to a condition in which we apply biblical principles and learn to respect the rights of others to have a dissenting view we will end in chaos and destruction.  I agree with former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich that America is broken and both sides need to stop ranting and start listening.  The Old Testament’s eye for an eye needs to be replaced with the New Testament’s love they neighbor and the realization that vengeance does not belong to man but God.

We need to rediscover the art of listening.  We do not have to agree on all things but at least listen, we just might learn something constructive and develop an understanding of why people think as they do.  In that discovery, we can find responses that are not caustic but informative.

We need to allow ourselves to learn new things, and, in that discovery, we need each other.  None of us have a full picture of reality.  None of us have a full understanding of the truth.  If I learn to add what you know and share with what I know, I am much more informed and hopefully wiser.

We need to commit ourselves to helping our fellow man and our country.  We need to become involved in our communities, churches, and our government.  Each year we see the ravages of natural disasters, addiction, homelessness, and crime.  If we would reach out our hands and our hearts to those in need, we would find compassion becoming stronger and, in that state, we could make America better.

Again, I ask not one to abandon their convictions or beliefs, but I do ask that we restrain ourselves from tit for tat and insult for insult.  Soft answers can turn away wrath.  If I show another understanding and actually listen, I find that their anger, over time, subsides and I am able to communicate.  They may not accept my presentation of truth but at least they hear me. 

God bless you and God bless America!

HOW MUCH DOES CHINA OWN IN AMERICA?


Some of us have been concerned for several years over the increased foreign ownership of land in the United States of America.  I can envision no scenario in which it is a good policy to allow foreign governments or foreign agents to own land, businesses, infrastructure, etc. in the United States of America.  I say that with emphasis when it comes to those who are clearly our adversaries, not our friends, such as China or Russia.  Yet, it continues to transpire and how much they own is not fully discernable but what we know is frightening.

The ownership of farmland by China is incredibly disconcerting to this American.  Farmland, the source of our food supply owned by China should cause the hair on the back of all American’s necks to stand on end.  If you cannot see the danger in that you are not thinking.  If they control the land, they control the supply, the price, and thereby have the power to cause starvation in the USA. 

Imagine an administration that is in bed with the Chinese government and what that would mean to America if China decided to do the abhorrent and reduce our food supply.  Wait, you don’t have to imagine it we have one today in the Biden administration.  An administration that seems to be owned by Xi and the Chinese along with his family.  Does that bode well for America and Americans? 

What we know and is open to public view is probably a drop in the bucket to reality.  But what we know is deeply disconcerting.  We have a sprinkling of U.S. lawmakers who have expressed concern over the increased Chinese purchases of American farmland.  They may be responding after the cows are out of the barn, but at least some of them are taking note.  Will they be able to do anything?  Not unless we gain a change in the presidency, Congress, and the courts. What I mean is, not unless we strip the power from the grips of the liberal leftist globalist and put it in the hands of those who will fight for America.

At the outset of 2020, Chinese investors owned a minimum of 192,000 acres of U.S. agricultural land valued at about $1.9 BILLION.  In 2018 the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that China’s agricultural investments in other nations had grown more than tenfold.  That demands questions?  Why?  But the answer is so clear and threatening everyone should insist that the U.S. government implement laws to prevent it from happening in America before it is too late.

Surely everyone can see the danger in allowing China to control our food supply.  We are paying subsidies to foreign-owned land in the United States.  Seriously, we are paying them to destroy us!  How can anyone think that is a good idea?  Some states are taking action that imposes restrictions on foreign ownership of farmland, but it may be too little too late.  We are rapidly headed toward a Chinese-owned agricultural monopoly and if that happens, America is toast.

By doing a little more research in an effort to find some of the hidden portions of this iceberg I discovered that at least 30 million acres of American farmland are owned by foreign investors.  That is a portion of land roughly the size of Mississippi or Pennsylvania.  That is deeply disconcerting.

Six states currently have bans on foreign ownership of farmland:  Hawaii, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Dakota, and Oklahoma.  Hey American States, including my home Texas, why haven’t you followed suit? 

It is not just farmland that China is purchasing but residential properties as well.  China owns more residential real estate than any other foreign country.  They have massive holdings on the West Coast and impact the real estate market.  They also have incredible influence over the American media and our national policies are being dictated by pro-China advocates and rhetoric.

The New York Times, for example, their largest shareholder Carlos Slim has close ties and business ventures with Chinese firms in the pocket of the Chinese government.  His Giant Motors have a vested interest in China’s JAC Motors engaged in penetrating the Latin American market with designs on the U.S. market.

The Washington Post (WaPo) under the ownership of Jeff Bezos and many of Amazon’s biggest-selling products such as Echo, and the Kindle are manufactured in China.  It is fiscally profitable for Bezos and the WaPo to back China even if it means losing our Republic.  The globalists are not concerned about the America of our Founders they are concerned about a globe filling their coffers and enhancing their power, control, and influence.

Cable News Network (CNN) is a property of WarnerMedia which is so closely tied to China it might as well be called Chinese News Network.  If you recall how CNN reacted to the Wuhan virus you can see what I’m suggesting.  Couple that with NBC, ABC, and Bloomberg, and you quickly realize how much influence China has in the American media.  Therefore, their propaganda is presented 24/7/365 and the followers of those media outlets drink the Kool-Aid and regurgitate the rhetoric.

China has long owned Hollywood and is seeking to control the content that America sees via the Big Screen, the television, and various social media platforms including TikTok, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

I am doubly concerned to learn that the Chinese are buying strategic land in Texas.  In 2020 they purchased over 100,000 acres in West Texas for what is deemed an economic project.  The U.S. Intelligence believes, as do I, that this is less economic and more intelligence gathering.  Interestingly, this land is framed by the pristine Devils River, the legendary Pecos River in West Texas borderlands of Val Verde County.

Beginning in 2015, GH America Investment Group has purchased over 130,000 acres of property in Val Verde County.  You will not be surprised to learn that GH America is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Xinjiang-based Guanghui Industry Investment Group.  Must I remind everyone that Xinjiang is notorious for its so-called re-education camps, where China detains Uighur Muslims and other ethnic minorities against their wills and violates their human rights?  Why do they want in America?  Could that be a clue?

Pay attention to the fact that China emerged from the COVID-19 shock earlier than the rest of the world and is planning for the long term.  China outpaced the United States in attracting foreign direct investment for the first time in history. 

If America is loaded with corrupt politicians owned by China, where does that lead?  If the American Media is controlled by China and we are lambasted with pro-China rhetoric constantly, where does that lead?  If we continue the Big Tech censorship of anything regarding the agenda of the Leftists and the Globalists, where does that lead?  If American business continues to be undercut by Washington, where does that lead?  If our American culture and core values continue in the crosshairs of the Leftists and Washington, where does that lead?  It leads to the demise of America.

If we allow China to own us, we will find our liberty only a faint memory and our children’s children will become serfs to a foreign godless entity that will make their lives a living hell.  That will be the legacy we leave to our children.  I am not willing to quietly let that happen.

Therefore, I am committed to sounding the alarm and standing for Faith, Family, and Freedom!  Will you join the rest of us so committed?

God bless you and God bless America!

WHEN CAN WE QUESTION SCIENCE OR GOVERNMENT?


It seems that those in power have adopted the view that we, the masses, are not qualified or allowed to question the so-called science or the government anymore.  That is anathema to the founding principles of our Republic and reason, but seems to be where we have evolved as a nation.  I question their right to take that position based on the Constitution and the Bible.  Therefore, I will continue to be considered a rebel of sorts and trashed by those drinking the Kool-Aid being offered by those in power. 

There is much to question regarding COVID, not that it is not real but the extent to which we should be fearful and willing to consent to surrender our Rights, Freedoms, and Liberties.  There is much to question regarding the Vaccines and Boosters being advanced by those in power.  I am not saying there is no benefit but with some prominent doctors and scientists raising questions and pointing out omitted facts, I find myself with far more questions than answers. 

Please understand, I am not trying to rail against anyone who has or has not taken the jab.  That, in my view, is constitutionally and morally a personal and private choice.  It is not something that should be mandated by the federal government or local entities who have assumed Hitleresque type power. 

I won’t attempt to delve deeply into the information that Doctors Peter McCullough and Robert Malone divulged in a six-hour interview with Joe Rogan, but it is very insightful.  Neither of those doctors as opposed to the vaccine per se but both raise questions that give cause for concern.

Both doctors recognize that a person can contract the virus more than once.  They have discovered that those who contracted the Alpha did not get the Delta, but that Omicron is dramatically different.  The Omicron is infecting people who previously had COVID but, thus far, it appears symptomatically, it is little worse than the common cold.  However, both believe that it produces antibodies to prevent one from getting COVID again.  That would be natural immunity, heretofore, not truly recognized by Dr. Fauci and the government.

Both doctors reveal how the government and powers that be are manipulating the data being presented to the public in a duplicitous manner.  You are free to form your opinion as to why this manipulation is transpiring, but it seems to be rooted in keeping the fear level high.  Unless the fear factor is high people will not consent to continued manipulation and control.

Dr. Malone insists that the primary cause of hospitalization is the Delta Variant which is much more serious and if untreated early frequently leads to death.  Both doctors believe that the antibodies available and used provide the best defense against hospitalization and death.  But the strange action of pulling those by the government can only lead to increased hospitalization and death.  Why would you take something that has or might work from the market knowing it will cause more deaths?  Why?  You have to provide your own reason because the government is not disclosing their reasons.

If we follow the money, we discover that Big Pharma and others are making a killing (sorry for that description) monetarily by keeping us alarmed and producing vaccine after vaccine, pill after pill, and booster, after booster into perpetuity.  There is a deeply concerning trend of sudden deaths all over the world after vaccination.  Maybe it is not related and maybe it is, but the governments of the world are not forthcoming with data.  That opens the door for conspiracy theories and raises levels of concern.

Then when we are subjected to the inane and discombobulated diatribe of Joe Biden, we are given further reason to distrust those in power.  This is the year 2022 but the illustrious President Biden said that there is reason for hope in the year 2020.  What?  That is well into the rearview mirror sir.  He insisted that this is the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” but admitted that more and more vaccinated are contracting the virus.  If the vaccine does not prevent one from getting the virus isn’t that counter to what a vaccine is supposed to do?

When we follow the money and the race of Big Pharma to dominate the market and become the first trillionaire company we lose trust or should.  The federal government is committed to purchasing 10 to 20 million of the Pfizer antiviral pill.  The FDA has granted emergency use authorization for Pfizer’s Plxlovid-Nirmatrelvir tablets and ritonavir pills.  From the jab to the pill and none of them have a proven track record of success and no one is forthcoming on the potential dangers and deaths caused by the vaccines.  I don’t know how many, but there is enough smoke to cause me to be concerned that there might be a fire burning that is hidden and dangerous.

Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin are not being used or recommended by the government and Big Pharma.  Why?  There is data of government research that has been uncovered that reveals that those are included in methods to treat this virus. Therefore, one should ask, could it be that those are not lucrative enough for them to make the list of approved or emergency-approved treatments?  The data that I have been able to discover suggests that those actually help, so if something has a record of helping and the potential to help, why not use everything available?  Why not allow the physicians and the patients to decide which route they desire to take?

Dr. Marc Siegel informed Fox News that another magic COVID number has been reached and it is not positive.  One million cases per day under the Biden administration who was going to kick it into the closet and do away with it.  There are more than 100,000 hospitalizations and the Omicron has only about 20% the rate as the Delta.  Since there are five times more cases per day in the U.S. with Omicron that means the hospitalization rate is the same or greater.

Many experts believe that this variant will burn out over the next couple of months.  What do we do in the meantime?  Are there any sensible paths to be taken?  I believe the answer is, yes!  We could stop all the ridiculous and dangerous political infighting and marginalization over masks, treatments, and vaccines.  I also believe that it is nonsensical to lock down the country again.  Public health is not just the virus, but we must consider the mental and physical damage done by extended isolation.

Former CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield believes that antibody levels against the spike protein are important.  He suggested that we need a standard immune titer to go by and that recent boosters count for more immune protein than the original vaccines.  We need to realize that just because someone disagrees with us, they are not Darth Vader or Genghis Khan. 

I’m not sure that anyone can convince the Biden administration or the CDC to swallow their pride, come out of denial and implement Operation Warp Speed for therapeutics which are scarce (Sotrovimab, the monoclonal antibody that works against Omicron, and Paxlovid, the anti-viral protease inhibitor pill), along with rapid antigen home tests for everyone in America.

We can be sensible.  We have not been, but we can be.  Also, we must return to God and seek His help in dealing with our enormous problems including the pandemic.  We can, but will we?

God bless you and God bless America!

FINE JOB, MR. PRESIDENT, IF…


Yes, I would say that Mr. Biden is doing a fine job if the purpose and intent are to destroy our Republic’s system of economics and our Constitutional Liberties and Freedoms.  Otherwise, I would have to say, he has been a complete failure.  I would say, “I told you so,” but you already know that it was a terrible mistake to allow him to ascend to the presidency.  If you don’t know it, then you must not be living in the same world as the rest of us.

There is a myriad of reasons to say his administration is an abysmal failure, but one in particular that causes each of us to feel the pinch is inflation.  We are experiencing the worst inflation since 1982.  The rate of inflation has risen faster than any previous administration.  We are in the throes of economic distress that will cost families their ability to earn a living and put multitudes of small businesses out of business.  Mom and Pop stores that are not operating on an incredibly low overhead will continue to put up “Going out of Business” signs in their store windows.

The Labor Department revealed that the consumer-price index, which tracks what consumers pay for goods and services, rose in November by 6.8% from one year ago. That is staggering!  That is the fastest rise in 40 years, and we see the sixth-month inflation has been above 5%.  Build America back Better?  Seriously, is the way to better the destruction of our economy and multitudes of lives in the process?  If so, please don’t give us better, let us stay where we were.

The core consumer-price index (CPI), which excludes the often-volatile categories of food and energy increased 4.9% in November faster than the 4.6% of October.  The supply chain issues are the result of Biden’s economic policies and strangling regulations and restrictions. 

Even the often party-friendly Congressional Budget Office ripped Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ agenda.  The Left has repeated the diatribe and rhetoric that Biden’s agenda will cost ‘zero dollars.’  That is a blatant fabrication.  The Treasury Department, led by Janet Yellen, has insisted that the bill will lower the deficit over the long term.  Unfortunately, she can’t really explain how that works.

The initial Congressional Budget Office (CBO) exposed those fabrications.  They revealed, what most of us know, that the ‘Build Back Better’ bill would raise the deficit by $160 Billion.  They had to do some manipulating of the numbers to make it that low.  They claimed that it would only be that amount as the federal government enforced tax receipts (IRS) and cleaned up the ‘waste and fraud’ that now exists.  Do I see pigs flying over the unicorns grazing in my backyard?  The IRS part will be a reality but cleaning up ‘waste and fraud’ is a fantasy. 

Democratic Senator from West Virginia, Joe Manchin, who usually toes the party line is finding it impossible to back the plan.  The Congressional Budget Office has released another estimate showing the real cost of the ‘Build Back Better’ bill after all the temporary (permanent) programs are extended into perpetuity.  We have been down this road before.  Not long ago we were force-fed Obamacare and the ‘Build Back Better’ bill will force us to fund entitlement programs and pork for decades. 

What is the real cost to America and Americans?  According to the Congressional Budget Office report, the bill would increase the deficit by $3 Trillion or more over the next decade.  The Democrats have tried to insist that it would be more like $0.2 Trillion but facts are facts and true accounting exposes the lies.

Biden and the Left insist they have a plan to pay for all this.  Seriously?  Their plan is to tax, tax, and tax.  Their plan is to tax everything and to find a way to access your retirement plans and IRAs.  Do you like the idea that you have labored, sacrificed, and saved for years hoping for a comfortable or existable retirement only to have them steal your savings? 

In the words of Milton Friedman, “Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program.” There is no world in which the temporary programs included in this bill will suddenly disappear.  Calling them temporary is laughable and they know it.  I presume they believe we are naïve and gullible enough to believe them.  They have cause to believe that because we keep electing them.

It seems to me that rather than pursuing “America First” as Donald Trump proposed, Biden wants to have “America Last.”  He seems to be on board with those who believe that America is an evil empire that deserves to be punished for its greatness and success.  The Woke Crowd and Politically Correct of the Progressive ilk believe that America was founded by evil, racist, homophobic, xenophobic white men and we must be judged and made to pay.  Sadly, they don’t seem to realize they pay too in attempting to inflict pain on those of us who are conservative and Christian.

In this economy created by the Biden administration and the Democrats, small businesses are struggling.  The Left claims to be advocates for the middle class and the little man, but we are the ones suffering the most, while the rich and super-rich grow fatter.  Lining the pockets of politicians with donations and other perks seems to be an effective means of ensuring that they get what they want.

Everything is more expensive.  Have you priced a 2×4 stud lately?  If you do, you will realize that the cost of lumber has skyrocketed.  The supply chain issues are causing delays and an increase in costs.  Countless ships are sitting offshore with goods that are undeliverable because of this administration.  How is that ‘Building Back Better?’

The Biden team and the Democrats blame everything on the coronavirus, but the reality is that this crushing inflation did not begin until shortly after Joe Biden was inaugurated in 2021.  This is his and it is time that we make him own it.  Many small businesses have stated that they were doing well at the end of 2020 but in just a few short months after the Biden agenda kicked in, they are struggling to keep their doors open.  It is hard to deal with an increase of 15% in wholesale prices and keep your prices competitive or affordable.

I don’t know about you, but the economy coupled with the issues at the border, abortion, allowing lawlessness to prevail among some groups, and the clear attempt to strip us of many of our Constitutional Rights is infuriating.  I find it impossible to support the Democratic agenda and stand for Faith, Family, and Freedom.  It is time that we return to God and I believe we need a time of National Fasting and Prayer for America.

God bless you and God bless America!

WHAT YOUR HAND FINDS TO DO, Do It With Excellence…


I take that from Ecclesiastes 9:10 – “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.

It is my observation that far too many people in today’s society seem to have no purpose in life.  They have no real direction and are drifting aimlessly through life moving from one crisis to the next.  Some lament their condition and express their unhappiness with life as well as everyone and everything around them.  Some become disgruntled and bitter unable to enjoy even the simplest things and live with envy and hate toward those who have discovered purpose in life.  They see themselves as victims and nothing is their fault.

Sadly, unless we find purpose in life and prepare for that purpose on a daily basis, we are subject to becoming entrapped in the mentality of defeat, hopelessness, and bitterness.  I read an article recently about a church ministry trip to Guatemala.  The team went there to build church buildings in some of the most remote portions of that country.  They stayed in humble facilities called hotels. 

The members of the team saw the impoverishment of the people and expected to see people with no purpose or pride.  One member of that team reflected on a walk through the village and saw something that changed his outlook on the people they came to help and shaped his vision for his own future. 

He saw an elderly man in his 70s or 80s (not old at all to me anymore) working on a small strip of land between the sidewalk and curb.  It was infested with weeds.  What got this man’s attention was the way the man dressed.  He wore a long-sleeved shirt and pants both off-white and tan.  He had on boots that were almost knee high and his trousers tucked into the boots.  The man also had on a leather apron that started at his chest and ran almost to his knees.  He also wore a wide-brimmed straw hat and had on gloves.  He had two tools with him, a hoe, and a rake nearby. 

He said the apron reminded him of a farrier’s or blacksmith’s apron and he determined that this man had probably done something like that for a living but due to age and physical condition could no longer follow that occupation.  What impressed him was the way the man, regardless of physical condition or age prepared himself for what he was doing as if it was his assigned responsibility.  He had a purpose in life and pursued it with preparation and excellence.  His wife did the same in their little hovel, keeping it neat and tidy.  They had purpose and took pride in what they did.

I am retired or at least semi-retired (not sure you ever retire fully).  I no longer go to an office to work and sometimes find it easy to not dress for the occasion.  I was told long ago that the way we dress for the day is reflective of the importance we place on what we are doing or not doing that day. 

I believe that purpose in life is rooted in two things.  For me, it is my faith in God, number one, and my commitment to excellence, accountability, and responsibility, number two.  I have adopted the directive of the Bible found in Colossians 3:23-24 – Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward. It is the Lord Christ whom you [actually] serve.

I see the younger generation exhibiting a lack of commitment to excellence, and many are devoid of any sense of responsibility or accountability.  They are transient in their lives and move from job to job, place to place, relationship to relationship with no sense of permanence.  We have been taught that by our tolerance and lack of discipline. 

Many people work for money!  You may say, that’s what we all do.  However, I believe and have long taught that you should pursue what you have a passion for as a vocation in life.  Early in my adulthood, I realized through a series of events that my passion was the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  I wanted to preach, teach, and disciple hungry souls for Kingdom purposes.  I have, at times, found myself having to take secular employment to supplement my income.  Not all those jobs were in the same realm as my passion but temporarily, I did them.  That being said, I have always attempted to do it with my all and do it as unto the Lord. 

We have allowed technology, political correctness, lack of discipline, and entitlement to produce a generation or generations of people without any sense of purpose in life.  They have no real purpose and lack the necessary pride to drive them to get off the sofa, reject the government handout, and seek to be gainfully employed, providing for their own.  We through government programs have enabled the mindset of laziness and lack of purpose.  We have made it easy to lack diligence and any sense of an entrepreneurial spirit.  Yet, those same people are bitter toward those who work and have amassed any level of fortune. 

I believe that inner peace comes only from knowing God’s purpose for our lives and once we know that we become better laborers for Him and better citizens.  Some insist that it is difficult to know the will and purpose of God, but I say, not so!  I believe that the purpose of God can easily be discovered in what He has caused you to be passionate about.  Yet too many drift without preparing for success and committing themselves to any purpose and cause.  Too many fail to assume any responsibility and are not held to any standard of accountability. 

Our society and our government have sought to eliminate God and the Bible for all things public.  We have demanded that there is no absolute truth and that everything must be equal.  In our endeavor to level the playing field and make everything equal and fair, we have destroyed the inner drive to excel and stripped people of their purpose in life.  We have made it too easy to drift and lost our work ethic and vision.  The American Dream has stood on the platform of a willingness to pursue a dream and work hard.  The American Dream embodied accountability and responsibility. 

America, in its infancy, was filled with people who believed that if allowed to pursue their passion they could succeed.  They did not expect the government to provide for them, only that the government would not interfere and limit their ability to pursue their dream and purpose.  They understood that the harder they worked the luckier they were and that their labors could produce great rewards.  They dreamed big dreams and dared to pursue them with passion.  They accepted the responsibility for their success or failure and were accountable for their actions.

We have generations who see no harm in looting, rioting, maiming and destroying private property.  They accept no responsibility for their actions and often cry ‘racism’ if challenged held accountable.  They have been taught they are entitled to have what another has or equal to that without the labor that person invested.  We have destroyed ourselves and lost purpose and vision.  I am praying that we can reclaim that, and it begins in the home where mother and father teach their children.  They teach them both in words and actions.  They must demonstrate what they teach.

I know this may be a bit different type of blog post, but I want to see America restored to her former greatness but do not believe that possible without a return to what made her great.  I believe that it all begins with the heart and mind of individuals.  I believe that without a return to moral practices, personal responsibility, and accountability, and a return to God, we will continue on the path of destruction.

I ask that you join me in praying for America and those who live in this great land!  May God help us to adopt the directive of 2 Chronicles 7:14 and return to Him.

God bless you and God bless America. 

I CAN’T VOTE THE DEMOCRAT’S PLATFORM – – Here’s Why…


I have had people who are fellow believers in the Lord Jesus Christ ask why I say I can’t vote for the Democrats or the Democratic platform.  They often use arguments about the character or allegations against a Republican or Conservative in the race and compare apples to peas.  They talk about principle and contend that the Republicans are without compassion and the Democrats are the Party of the little man.  Sometimes they even attempt to use the Bible to defend their position.

This article will likely put me in hot water with the PC Police and will aggravate some to use the delete button on our Facebook friendship.  If that happens, it happens, but I believe in Freedom of Speech.  I believe the Bible.  I believe in God.  I believe that some things are so glaringly anti my core foundational convictions that I must address them.

I am going to list a few items that prevent me from voting for the Democrats because of their Party Platform.  Even if the individual Democrat in the race appears to hold many of the views and convictions I hold, their national platform and the history of Democrats voting in Congress precludes me from pulling the lever for that candidate.  Overall, the Republican Party’s national platform has more closely aligned with my views than the Democrats.  At this juncture, there is no viable alternative to the two main political parties.  Will that change?  Time will tell.

First, the matter of Life is probably the number one issue on my list.  I believe in Life!  I believe in the declarations of the Bible regarding life, and I believe in the principles espoused in the Declaration of Independence.  I believe the objective of the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Abortion is a deal-breaker for me!  If a Party or Candidate supports abortion, no matter which side of the aisle they identify with, I cannot vote for that candidate.  I would be in a dilemma were both the Democrat and Republican in a race embraced the Pro-Choice view and the modern view of post-birth abortion, I would either not vote or write in a candidate’s name.  I could not with good conscience vote for either of them.

I believe that birth begins, at a minimum, at conception.  I go to Psalm 139 as my first reference. In Psalm 139:13-16, we read, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made your works are wonderful,    I know that full well.15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”  You may not accept God’s view, but it is my cornerstone.

When I turn to science and medicine, I find things so amazing and disturbing regarding the development of that infant in the womb, that the thought of abortion makes my skin crawl and I cringe.  It is a horrifying thought to slaughter that innocent, unborn, life before it has the opportunity to experience life on earth. 

Around two weeks after fertilization, it is documented that the baby’s first completed brain cells appear.  At three weeks the pre-born child’s heart is in an advanced stage of formation.  How does anyone refer to that being in the womb as a blob of tissue?  At about 24 days the heart begins to beat.  A heartbeat and yet it is not recognized as a human being, a living creature in the womb?  How can that be?

At 4 weeks the muscles are developing with arm and leg buds are visible and the first neocortical cells appear.  The neocortex is the seat of complex thinking and reasoning, a feature not present, in any other mammal.  At 5 weeks the pituitary gland is forming and at 6 weeks the baby’s heart energy output is 20% of an adult’s.  The cartilage skeleton is completely formed, and bone formation begins.

At 43 days, the baby’s brain waves can be recorded.  Yet, the Pro-Choice, Pro-Abortion crowd still refuses to recognize this as a life.  Just a few days following that infant in the womb begins spontaneous and voluntary body movements.  At 7 weeks the lips of that preborn child are sensitive to touch, and his/her ears resemble his family’s pattern.  At 8 weeks all organs are present, complete, and functioning, except the lungs.  The heart beats marvelously, the stomach produces digestive juices, the liver makes blood cells, and the kidneys are functioning.  How is that not a living being, a LIFE?

By the end of the first trimester (12 weeks, the point where most surgical abortions are done) the baby in the womb has demonstrated distinct personality traits.  Sleep patterns differ, some hiccup constantly, others may cry.  How is that not a living being? 

There is much more but I won’t try to give a full breakdown of the month to month or week by week in the development of that life in the womb but hope that demonstrates that that thing you call a fetus, or a blob of tissue is a LIFE, a Living Human in the womb.  If God judged the nation of Israel for sacrificing thousands of babies to Baal, how can He not judge us when we have sacrificed Millions to the God of Choice or Self?

Since there is little space to list the numerous other items that prevent me from voting for the Democrats, I will list some without discussion.  I believe that God made two genders, Male and Female.  I could refer to many passages, but I give you the first in the Bible, Genesis 1:27 – “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” 

The idea of a man trapped in a woman’s body or a woman trapped in a man’s body would be to insist that God made a mistake in creating us.  I do not believe that and cannot endorse that practice of self-identifying as something other than what your chromosomes and physical features reveal you to be. 

God calls homosexuality an abomination.  I know that I’m not supposed to say that but when both the Old and New Testaments confirm God’s view of the practice as being unacceptable and sinful, how can I endorse it.  If God says something, I am not afraid to take a stand in agreement with His word.  Let me give you some biblical references to consider (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:10; Jude 1:7). 

Taxation, the right to keep and bear arms, freedom of speech, private property rights, and national security are also extremely important to me.  There are many many more, but I will conclude with this and hope that you receive this as my view.  You do not have to accept or agree with me and I will still interact with you.  But my principles demand that I reject any political party that pursues those things that are contrary to the Original Intent of the Constitution, the Bible, and moral common sense. 

God bless you and God bless America!

DO THOSE ON THE LEFT BELIEVE THEIR OWN HYPE?


I am quite serious in asking this question based on their shock at their own polls regarding Joe Biden’s favorability.  Chuck Todd recently was obviously distraught and in a state of disbelief that the NBC Poll showed that 71% of voters believe America, under Biden, is on the wrong track. 

He called the news ‘scary’ for Democrats.  It took only a few months for most Americans to have buyer’s remorse over their vote against Trump or for Biden.  Most Americans, I still believe, are somewhat rational beings.  Therefore, they realize that what is happening to America under Biden and the Left is costing them financially as well as in their personal liberties and freedoms.  Would they say that?  No, but they will express their discontent in a somewhat generic poll.  They feel they maintain sufficient anonymity, to tell the truth.

Mr. Todd further lamented that Joe Biden’s approval rating stood at a dismal 41% versus 54% who disapprove.  I suspect that if the truth were known it is even worse than that, but then, there are millions out there who have lost the ability to think or reason for themselves.  They parrot what they hear from the media and politicians.  It is easier for them to be told what to think than think.  They simply hold out their hands to receive the morsel tossed their way and express hate for whomever they are told is bad.

In that poll, only 37% said Biden was competent.  The same number as believe he can handle a crisis.  Over 50% disagree with those assertions.  Those polls indicate that the voting public believe that the Republicans are better equipped by double digits to handle border security, inflation, crime, the economy, and generally getting things done.  The areas favorable for the Leftists are climate change, coronavirus, education, and abortion. 

Abortion?  Of course, they are the party of infanticide.  Education?  Naturally, those being polled are the product of decades of Leftists propaganda and brainwashing.  Coronavirus?  Basically, because they believe what they hear from the media and deem it viable, valid, and trustworthy.  I won’t even address the issue of man-made global warming or climate change.  It is a Leftist-driven issue devoid of sufficient valid scientific evidence to support the overreaction and lockdowns. You can disagree if you choose.

I have asked and been asked, “Why Was Biden Elected?”  I generally deflect and respond with a multi-part answer.  Voter Fraud would suggest that he was not legitimately elected, but even if we discount that, it played a role in the election of some down-ballot persons.  Therefore, if we dismiss voter fraud (not that I do) that leaves only one conclusion – Hate for Donald John Trump. 

I do not believe that with the poll numbers now cropping up regarding Biden and his presidency that most people truly wanted him.  With the prevalence of hatred for Trump, it appears that the Democratic Party could have nominated a blind, mentally challenged rodent and the 2020 results would have been virtually the same.  Not even the Democrats love Joe Biden.

All his cabinet members, the media, the DNC, and other establishment types cringe every time he opens his mouth.  He will mumble, stumble along and then utter something beyond stupid, lame, and often incoherent. 

I laughed myself to tears when I read the Economist’s note that, “only a tiny corner of a large Arlington, Virginia park had been fenced off and floodlit to create the safest possible space in the most reliably Democratic city of a state that Biden won by ten points.”  The tiny corner was correct because only a handful of Democratic supporters showed up.  Most Democrats are ambivalent about Joe Biden.  The crowd was polled about their view of him, and some said they were “indifferent” while others said that they held “no view.”  Nobody was uncovered that was enthusiastic about him.

I loved the results in Virginia after Biden told the crowd, “Remember this: I ran against Donald Trump and Terry is running against an acolyte of Donald Trump.”  Guess What Uncle Joe – Terry lost and Younkin won!  He claimed and claims to be a uniter and has gone out of his way to divide this nation.  Mid-term elections are always a referendum on the sitting president, not the predecessor.  This is not about Trump nearly as much as it is about Biden.  Uncle Joe, you are getting an “F” not an “A”.  Please don’t assume that I am dropping the F-bomb, I don’t use that language and am referring to letter grades on job performance.

Yet, the media and the establishment crowd still claim that Biden has done so much to “Build America Back.”  He has “Sent America Back” to the Carter and Obama eras in which inflation, joblessness, and lack of respect by the world have taken center stage.  Do they truly believe that Joe Biden is a fitting president of the greatest nation on the planet?  I don’t believe they do, but how can I be sure since they appear stunned when forced to look reality in the face.

To make matters worse for the Left and dangerous for all of us a CNN Poll reported that only 2% of Americans think Biden is doing “very well.”  I did say two percent as in 2 out of 100 people.  The full poll was that 2% said the country was doing “very well”, 29% said “fairly well” but a whopping 45% said, “pretty bad” and 24% said, “very badly.”  The combination of the net answers places 69% of the people in the “pretty/very badly” category and only 31% in the “very/fairly well” category.   If my math is correct that is a 38% difference in the negative for Biden.

Let me make every Leftist’s head explode.  In January 2020 the number for “very well” for Donald Trump was 20%.  So, I ask, “How Did Biden Get Elected?”  In this poll, 77% are worried about the economy in 2021 whereas only 58% were worried in 2020.  There are similar numbers regarding crime.  In 2021 57% are worried about crime and in 2020 only 37% were worried.  “How Did Joe Biden Get Elected?”

How do you trust a president that openly reports that he is told what to do, what to say when to say it, and when to do it?  How do you trust a president that is incoherent most of the time his lips are moving?  We should have learned under Ronald Reagan that conservatism works, and liberalism fails.  We should have learned under Donald Trump that a businessman who is not a politician can get things done positively in the political realm but a politician like Joe Biden can only mess things up.  We have zero need for career politicians who have no idea what the business world is like or how to give Americans more opportunities to succeed.

God help us to wake up and may God give us a stay of execution until we can rectify this mess in 2022 and 2024 and prayerfully never repeat our mistake.

God bless you and God bless America!

HOW MANY RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS MUST BE STOLEN TO TURN THE TIDE?


Let me be a bit clearer and more detailed in the question of my title.  What will it take for the religious leaders of today to turn on the Leftists and unite with believers on the Right and in the Middle against the shredding of our Religious Freedoms?  What will be the final straw that breaks the camel’s back, or will there be an awakening?  I wish I knew the answer and I would use that knowledge to articulate the warnings and expose the dangers.  Devoid of that insight, I must plod along sounding the alarm as I have, hoping I am not simply preaching to the choir.

The Biden administration has, more than any previous president purposefully and systematically eliminated numerous religious freedoms that were protected by former President Trump.  He has weaponized the Department of Labor in his quest to undo the Trump policy of defending the religious freedoms of federal contractors. 

The Trump policy was to protect the federal contractors who “hold themselves out to the public as carrying out a religious purpose.”  Former Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia said, “Religious organizations should not have to fear that acceptance of a federal contract or subcontract will require them to abandon their religious character or identity.”  The Constitution emphatically declares that “Freedom of Religion” was a protected right of all American Citizens and thereby businesses.

Trump took great pains to solidify that protection and recognized that religious organizations had constitutionally protected autonomy.  They could hire employees who were in agreement with their religious missions.  The Democrats and the Biden administration disavow that and have, is, and will discard that rule and protection.  In the Biden policy, they insist that they oppose religious freedom in order to eliminate discrimination. 

Biden’s team insists, as did Obama’s, that any organization that objects to the LGBTQ agenda or abortion on demand will not be awarded a federal contract.  They state, “taxpayer funds are not used to discriminate, especially in the performance of functions for the government itself, thus, for the public.”  What they are saying is if a business or organization does not accept, embrace, or agree with their LGBTQ or Abortion agenda will not get a federal contract. 

Biden’s Labor Department (Jenny Yang) insists that rescinding the Trump rule will protect equality and religious freedom.  I say balderdash, it does the opposite.  The Leftist’s definition of equality will never be in harmony with religious freedom or individual freedom.  To achieve what they define as equality demands the suppression of religious freedom, which is a violation of the Constitution.

I don’t care if you are pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine the mandate forcing people to be vaccinated against their beliefs may sound justifiable to the WOKE crowd and PC Police, but it is in direct conflict with the Constitution.  If a person’s personal or religious convictions place them at odds with receiving the vaccine or hiring someone whose views are anathema to their beliefs, then they should be allowed to follow their convictions.  No, they should not be allowed to do bodily harm to anyone holding opposing views, but they should not be forced to take a jab or hire an individual.

The First Amendment was written specifically to protect citizens against a tyrannical and overweening federal government.   A group of Navy SEALs has filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration over the vaccine mandate.  Mike Berry, an attorney for the group said, “The fact that the government has not granted a single religious exemption from the vaccine mandate shows that the Biden administration does not care about religious freedom.  Instead, this appears to be an attempted ideological purge.  After all these elite warriors have done to defend our freedoms, the Navy is not threatening their careers, families, and finances.”  The purge began under Obama and is not on steroids under Biden.

I have often stated that Liberalism is the Religion of the Left and their mandates have created a sort of national religion. The founding father’s fears are being made a reality via the actions of the Biden administration.  The founders feared a federally mandated orthodoxy and that is what is becoming a reality under this administration. 

The mandates being imposed on states and citizens is implementing a national religion that poses a grave danger to our Republic.  Those who disagree with their new national religion of WOKENESS are deemed, domestic terrorists.  If a parent becomes involved in their child’s education, they are persona non grata and deemed a danger.  Those who follow traditional religion are anathema to the Left. 

The Democrats and Biden are told by the courts that their actions are unconstitutional and issued a cease-and-desist order.  Does that stop them?  No!  They ignore the courts, including the Supreme Court, and continue to do what they desire.  Is that good for America?  No, that, if allowed to run its course, will be the death of the Republic and our individual freedoms.

The strong-armed tyrannical autocratic style of governance by this Administration will not be opposed by Congress so long as the Democrats have control of both Houses of Congress.  As long as the Department of Justice is on their team, no court ruling will be followed, and only by revolt or political ouster at the next election can we stop this lawlessness.

What will it take?  How far do they have to go before they step on the sacred cows of the religious crowd that follow the toxicity of liberal thought?  I believe that Biden’s decline in the polls is an indication that many on the right, left, and the middle are feeling the pinch and sensing the danger of this administration’s policies and practices.  Will that be enough in 2022?  A better question might be, will it matter by 2022 or will the dye have been cast and the destruction so severe there is not restoring our Republic?

I urge you to join those of us who see the danger and want a limited federal government.  Let’s seek the face of God, return to His moorings and guidance for life, and then become involved.

God bless you and God bless America.

BLURRING THE LINES IN SOCIETY…


No nation or people can thrive or even survive the catastrophe of blurring many moral and ethical lines in society.  There are lines that, if blurred or removed, will result in the total collapse of that Republic or Society.  No nation, community, church, family, or individual can achieve the designed and/or desired greatness intended if some lines are allowed to be blurred.

What lines?  There are so many, it will be impossible for me to address but hopefully, I can deal with a few to help us see the dangers of America’s Blurred Lines and the collision course with destruction.  This did not happen overnight, nor did it happen with the last election or several elections.  It has been in the works for decades and some insist we are too far gone to recover.  I hope they are wrong.  I hope but have incredible angst in my heart unless we see a massive return to some foundational principles quickly.

It is easy to demonize the opposition and make them worse than Genghis Khan or other despots in the annals of world history.  I have insisted for a very long time that the problem is not, in and of itself, Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, Right or Left.  I believed and believe that the problem, engendered and developed through the political jangling of the past 50 plus years, is the Human Heart.  The Condition of the Human Heart or Mind.

There has been a planned erasing of moral principles, God, the Bible, and absolute truth from the public square. The media has been heavily complicit.  Corrupt godless politicians have been deeply involved.  Education has been the tool used by those seeking to ‘fundamentally transform’ America from being a Christian nation to a godless self-serving one.  The followers of communism and socialism have long sought to control the education of their children.  Why would education be so important?

Every corrupt government will use its power and control of the education of its future citizens to shape them into what those in power desire.  The endgame is Control and Compliance.  Therefore, there are blatant omissions in education and the teachings of history, etc. to facilitate a false view of America, Constitutionalism, Freedom, Capitalism, and Christianity. 

If people are allowed access to and taught truth and facts, they tend to become more committed to the idea of Freedom and the limitation of government.  Corrupt governments control the education of the children for their political ends.  We see this glaringly in Communist Countries such as China, Russia, etc.  But we also see it, in the educational system of America. 

A more recent example was the PBS documentary “The Roosevelts” in which FDR and Elanor were presented as non-Christians.  Some will immediately contend that is factual, but some things we know that are not taught was that FDR was a member of the Dutch Reformed Church and professed his belief in the Bible and the God of the Bible. He even wrote for Christian publications an article entitled, “Why Men Should Go To Church.”  He gave lectures at Berkley University on the Christian’s role in modern society.  He gave five lectures and spoke extemporaneously on the subject for 90 minutes. 

Former President Barack Obama sought to remove any reference to God from FDR’s speeches recorded on plaques at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, DC.  Roosevelt may not have been the best Christian President, but he understood the role of God in government.

Some of his quotes should remind us that at the time of WWII America was very conscious of God’s providence and hand in America’s beginning and survival.  He said, “We cannot read the history of our rise and development as a nation, without reckoning with the place the Bible has occupied in shaping the advances of the Republic.” 

Regarding the Constitution, he said, “I hope you have re-read the Constitution of the United States.  Like the Bible, it ought to be read again and again.”  He also said, “Those forces hate democracy and Christianity as two phases of the same civilization.  They opposed democracy because it is Christian. They oppose Christianity because it preaches democracy.”

We began allowing the lines of our moral mooring to begin blurring in the early 1960s.  In the Engle v. Vitale case (1962), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-1 against New York’s “Regents’ prayer”, a “non-denominational” prayer that state education officials had composed for public schoolchildren to recite.  One year later, a case originated by a Philadelphia-area man named Ed Schempp challenged mandatory Bible reading in Pennsylvania schools.  That case reached the Supreme Court and in 1963 the court ruled 8-1 that devotional Bible reading or other government-sponsored religious activities were unconstitutional.

We took prayer and the Bible out of the public schools, allowing a somewhat sanitized and skewed history to begin to be taught.  The words of Thomas Jefferson come to mind, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.”  John Adams, the 2nd U.S. President declared, “the constitution is made for a moral people.”

When you remove the Bible from education and the public square you suffer negative consequences.  Since 1963, we have witnessed a decline in academic achievement, including SAT scores.  We have seen an increase in out-of-wedlock births.  We have experienced an increase in the use of illegal drugs and an increase in juvenile crimes.  We have witnessed the decline in respect for authority and the abysmal deterioration in-school behavior.

We have blurred the lines on what true Christianity means and watered-down commitment to Christ to the point that anything is acceptable and there is no right or wrong.  We have made ourselves the center of our universe and blurred the lines of absolute truth.  We have blurred the lines of DNA and the biblical declaration of gender. We have made abominable practices acceptable and a matter of choice blurring the lines of moral rightness.  We have created a society where there is no fear of God, no reverence for morality, no recognition of authority, and made self-gratification the prime objective. 

Our blurred lines in society have not created the desired utopia but a world in which everyone becomes a law unto themselves.  Our truths become the Truth rather than determining what we believe true to based on and rooted in God’s Truth.  We have justified evil and turned a blind eye to the deterioration within society and watched our liberties dwindle to nothingness.  We created this world ourselves by allowing the Lines of Truth to become blurred.  Once blurred the line of demarcation between good and evil, right, and wrong becomes easy to erase.

America, I fear for you and I am committed to interceding for my nation and her people.  I am committed to working for Faith, Family, and Freedom in every legitimate way I can.  I will work, speak, teach, pray, and vote.  Will you join me in the crusade to save America from a further blurring of the lines?

God bless you and God bless America
