Articles that appear on the home page will also appear here.

(01/24/2022) Palin Goes to Trial.  She is suing the New York Times for slander. 

(01/24/2022) Defeat the Mandates.  There was an anti-mandate rally in DC.  Mostly ignored or presented as anti-vaccination.

(01/24/2022) Responding to Brady ‘Phanatik’ Goodwin, the Latest Christian Leader to Renounce His Faith.  I do not want to be unfair, but Christian leaders who renounce their faith generally have succumbed to culture.  There seems to be a lot of postmodernism involved.

(01/16/2022) D.C. Restaurant Refuses to Honor Reserved Event for Pro-Life Group: ‘Trampling on Rights of Others.’  Note that those that claim to be most tolerant are the least.  Those who are most demanding of "rights" are the ones that actually trample on the rights of others. 

(01/16/2022) Owens Catches Dems Trying To Sneak Vote Changes Into NASA Bill … And It Gets Worse.  Yes, the Dems tried to stick their "institutionalize voting fraud" language in another bill that would easily pass.  One of the things that disturbs me most about the Democrats is that they are happy to impose their will by whatever means, even if their will is opposed by the vast majority of the country.  80% favor requiring voter ID, and the Democrats are trying to outlaw requiring such!

(01/16/2022) Wajahat Ali already prepping for ugly and vicious Islamophobia and anti-Muslim bigotry this weekend.  Every time Muslims do bad things (like taking hostages at a synagogue), we are warned of the anti-Muslim bigotry and backlash to come.  That is always the story and it never materializes.  Yet I have a question:  why should there not be a backlash against Islam?  Some Muslims do very bad things and they do those things because of Islam.  If they were being denounced by their fellow Muslims, that would be one thing.  But such is almost never the case.

(01/12/2022) More Government, Less Religion -- the Progressive Doctrine.  Well, progressives consider religion to be a competitor for people's loyalty.  For them, loyalty must be to the state, not to God. 

(01/12/2022) AG Merrick Garland says Justice Department has 'no higher priority' than investigating Jan. 6 Capitol riot.  Given that no one is charged with insurrection and they would love to be able to do so, I guess they have to keep it top priority.  Maybe they'll find an excuse to so charge someone.  But the rule of law has been absolutely destroyed with what they are doing to the supposed insurrectionists.  And few in the GOP are making a big deal of this. 

(01/11/2022) More Video Evidence of Maricopa County Election Workers Committing Violations. If the 2022 election had been (mostly) fair and legal, the winners would be anxious to prove that to be the case.  They are not.

(01/11/2022) Professor Endorses Authoritarian Governance as a Means to Combat Climate Change.  Yeah, but Trump was a dictator.  Look at all the unconstitutional things he did like ....  Okay, I can't think of any at the moment, but the Dems and the MSM assure me that this was the case.  More seriously, virtually everyone on the left is a closet dictator.  They'd do it in a heartbeat if they could and if they were assured that they'd be in charge.

(01/08/2022) NBC News reports some say there’s ‘little scientific evidence’ biological males have an advantage in women’s sports.  There is good reason to be skeptical of anything and everything that the MSM reports.

(01/08/2022) Illinois police officer's heartbreaking pleas for her life before being murdered with her own service pistol: 'You don't have to do this!'  The police were responding to complaints about a barking dog.  There is no truly "safe" situation for police.  Sometimes the death penalty seems to lenient.

(01/05/2022) Corrupt Secretary of State Raffensperger to Investigate Himself After Allegations of Ballot Trafficking in Georgia 2020 Election.  The headline may be too much editorial, but no person should investigate themselves and no organization should investigate itself.  Such investigations will never turn up and serious wrong doing or crimes.  Even when those investigations are turned over to a third party, they is reason to be skeptical.  He who pays the piper calls the tune.  The original source of the investigation needs to be external to that which is being investigated.

(01/04/2022)  Minnesota school district approves extra pay for non-white teachers.  So the solution for "systemic racism," which doesn't really exist, is blatant racism.  But to be fair, the reality is not as bad as the headline makes it out to be.  Extra work is required, but the opportunity to earn it is limited to minority teachers.

(01/04/2022)  Georgia Election Operative Gabe Sterling Gets Caught Telling a Boldfaced Lie.  We may never know if there was enough fraud to change the result of the 2020 election, but we definitely know there was a lot of fraud and a lot of coverup.

(01/03/2022) Teachers' Unions Reject Science and Children Again, Force Schools to Close.  The teacher unions certainly make it clear that they do not care about the kids.  Have they ever?

(01/03/2022) Armed Agents Arrest TX Parents in Their Homes for Opposing School Board's Policies.  Is this possible?  Sadly, it probably is.  We are edging closer to authoritarianism and dictatorship, and the cause is not the likes of Donald Trump.

(01/02/2022) New York to discriminate on basis of race in covid therapeutics access.  Of course they are.  But we are (supposedly) the baddies.

(01/02/2022) After Kamala Claims The Ports Are Running 24/7 – Goya Foods CEO Says They Are Still Majorly Backed Up.  To be fair, I will just say there is a big difference between being open 24/7 and running 24/7.  The MSM, however, assures us that the Biden administration doesn't lie (much) so we should accept everything they say at face value.  Unlike Trump, so they say.

(01/01/2022) Please — Stop The Coup Porn.  Jan 6 was not an insurrection, and the most likely coup we will ever have will come who claim they are preventing a coup.

(01/01/2022) When will the woke mob come for MLK?  Good question.  Either they will attack him, or they will pretend that he was never in favor of character content and color-blindness in the first place.  We used to scoff at the USSR and its rewriting of history, yet here we are.

(12/31/2021) Man With Kidney Disease Loses Everything, Then His Community Steps In & Get Him A ‘Miracle House.’  We can use all the miracles we can get.

(12/29/2021) FiveThirtyEight probably expected very different abortion stories.  If you need something to lift your spirits, this is it.

(12/29/2021) More Government, Less Religion – the Progressive Doctrine.  True.  And not good.

(12/25/2021) The Light that Shines in the Darkness.  Read it.

“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.  Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.  At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”  Luke 21:25-28 (NIV)

 

Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men.  Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.

Proverbs 4:14-15   (NIV)

 

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Isaiah 5:20  (NIV)

 
Current Event Archives

 

As noted above, articles posted under Current Events are archived by category after a few days.  These archives are all accessible as sub-menu items under Current Events.  But it may be more convenient to access from here, since brief descriptions are included for each of the archive categories.

  • abortion - Self-explanatory.  Includes articles and information on Planned Parenthood.

  • christianity - Most articles involve Christian faith and behavior.  See also "first amendment" since religious freedom is a big deal these days.

  • entertainment - Not much gets archived here - generally movie reviews / recommendations and the like.

  • feminism - Feminism has gone off the deep end, so it is in the news a lot.

  • first amendment - Anything First Amendment related.  Not limited to freedom of religion.

  • humor - A joke or cartoon is added daily.  These do not first appear on this, the Current Events page.

  • inspirational - Articles, sometimes music, of an inspirational nature.  Alas, I don't encounter many of these.

  • islam & israel - Articles on either subject.  Not so many on Israel these days.  There is a separate archive for "islamic terrorism."

  • islamic terrorism - Just what you would think.

  • lgbt, etc. - Started as same sex marriage, but had to expand to cover a lot more territory.

  • other news - A sort of catchall when I can't decide what category.

  • other social issues - Covers social issues other than abortion and lgbt related.

  • politics - Lots of stuff, but since politics intrudes into so many other areas, some politically related articles may be put in another category.

  • race relations - Some years ago, there wouldn't be a need for this category.  Sadly, things have changed.

  • second amendment - Not too many articles as this seems to have quieted down.

  • trail markers - Articles that can lead one to believe in the imminent return of Christ.  Since this is so common, in so many areas, most such articles just go under a different category.
