“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.

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

(09/17/2021) Reasons to Believe: Eric Metaxas’s Powerful New Book Is Atheism Dead?  Not out yet, but it looks very interesting.

(09/17/2021) What The Right Needs Now Is The Courage To Fight Even If It Costs Us.  If you read nothing else today, read this.

(09/17/2021) “Pray for me”   This is in regard to Kanye West, who accepted Christ not so long ago.

(09/17/2021) In the Midst of Revolution, What Difference Can We (Christians) Make?  Good question.  When the Larger Culture Abandons God and Biblical Values.  Bad things happen.  What can we do?  These articles are somewhat limited in scope, so may I pre-recommend a book?  I say "pre" because I've only just begun reading it.  Check out Erwin Lutzer's We Will Not Be Silenced: Responding Courageously to Our Culture's Assault on Christianity.  We have been silenced to a considerable degree.  What are we going to do about it?

(09/16/2021) What’s Liberating About 2 Million Mothers Quitting Work In The Last Year.  Hopefully more will follow.

(09/15/2021) Clay Clark – Reawaken America Tour: “I’m Reawakening America With The Help Of Jesus, General Flynn, Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, Bobby Kennedy Jr…”  To be honest, I didn't have a clue who Clay Clark was, but he has a microphone and I've been praying that more such people to get up and publicly advocate for revival.  This isn't exactly what I had in mind, but it is a start.

(09/15/2021) The Biden administration scorecard.  You probably knew it wasn't good.  You might not know just how bad it is.  Certainly the MSM isn't going to tell you.

(09/15/2021) House Dems Pass Bill That Will Give Them Full Control of Every Future Election.  You can't legislate the Constitution away, you have to amend it.  Unfortunately, that hasn't stopped the Democrats and liberal judges before.

(09/13/2021) Gold Star father says Biden 'bristled' when told to learn stories of fallen service members.  At least Bill Clinton was good at faking empathy.  Joe Biden can't even fake it.

(09/12/2021) A Failure of Memory and Nerve.  Sadly, for all our talk, we have forgotten.  For a few brief moments, 98% of America was filled with a terrible resolve.  We got started, got tired, and then quit. In a fundamental sense, America is far, far worse off today than we were on 9/10/2001.

(09/12/2021) 26 out of the 27 Lancet scientists who trashed theory that Covid leaked from a Chinese lab have links to Wuhan researchers.  What a surprise!  Always ask the following when an "expert" pontificates: Do they have any skin in the game?  More often than not, you will find that they do, and their "skin" overrides their "expertise."  Is it amazing how many will sell their principles for money?  I'm not sure, but plenty do.

(09/12/2021) American Homeschooling Goes Boom.  This may be one of the best things to come out of the virus.  May it continue to boom.  Our public schools - and many private ones, as well - are doing a terrible job.  The teacher's unions are a big part - but only a part - of the problem.  Most parents will discover they can do a much better job than the schools on most subjects, and co-ops and the like can help on other subjects.  Our church is open two days a week for homeschoolers to do just that, taking advantage of our facilities.  I'm pretty sure we are up to well over 100 kids, with a great deal of growth in the last year.

(09/12/2021) Pelosi's bishop calls for ex-communication of pols now pushing for abortion.  I realize that many Catholics are Catholics "in name only."  But when politicians declare themselves to be "devout" Catholics, yet publicly oppose Catholic teaching, should the church just sit back and let it go?  Clearly not.  Here is the problem.  High level politicians can do a lot of harm to the church should they be so inclined.  I firmly believe that in the long run, the Catholic church will be much better off it they excommunicate politicians that use their so-called Catholicism for political gain, yet sneer a much of what the church teaches.  But there will be short-term negative consequences.  Maybe.

(09/12/2021) Garland Announces Suit to Throw Out Texas Abortion Law.  Remember how Garland was a "moderate" when Obama nominated him to the court?  Boy, did we dodge a bullet there.

(09/11/2021) Biden Blasts Americans on Eve of 9/11: ‘We Have Witnessed Violence in America Against Muslims – True Followers of a Peaceful Religion.’  I keep asking myself, can things possibly get worse?  The answer, sadly, is yes.

(09/10/2021) A Sobering (Yet Motivating) Reality on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11.  Pray for revival, and work on your own personal revival.

(09/10/2021) DOJ files baseless suit against Texas over its abortion law.  The DOJ is nothing but a political arm of the administration.

(09/10/2021) America at the Crossroads — These are the Times That Try Men’s Souls.  They certainly are.

(09/10/2021) Pro-abortion churches? 'Reproductive freedom congregations' attack new Texas law protecting the unborn.  When politics and culture dictate your preaching rather than Scripture, you aren't a Christian church.

(09/09/2021) Voter Integrity Groups are Analyzing Video Evidence of Ballot Trafficking on Massive Scale in Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan.  Note that this sort of news simply is not reported by the great bulk of our media.  First we were told that election fraud didn't exist, then that it was minor, then that it wasn't enough to overturn the election.  Now it is ignored altogether.  People on the right have been asking this question for a long time: Is it remotely believable that Joe Biden got 81 million votes - 15 million more than Barack Obama got in 2012 and 15 million more than Hillary Clinton got in 2016?

(09/09/2021) Hanson: There’s a problem in upper reaches of our military.  The fundamental problem is that to become a general officer, politics are far more important than competence.  Such is still the case for any subsequent promotions.  Generals can screw up on a massive scale and suffer no consequences.  Not so for those beneath them.  And note that many in the higher ranks of the military are working hard to throw God out - or at least minimize Him.

(09/08/2021) Military Removes Crosses After Soldiers Allegedly Complain.  We are busy submitting to the 1%.

(09/08/2021) NFL will allow social justice phrases on helmets this season.  Naturally they all lean left.  Remember when the corporate would was supposedly right-wing?  To be fair, that has always been a bit of a myth.  Corporations tend to favor big government - as long as big government favors them.  And so government has.  Regulations, for example, always favor the big and already in business over the new and the small.  Trump started turning that around.  Some corporations liked that, most did not.

(09/08/2021) The fallacious Fauci revisited.  For an "expert," Fauci changes his mind a lot.  Nothing wrong if an expert changes their mind based on new information.  But they should at least admit that they are fallible and that they could be wrong.  Fauci is always certain, even when what he says is the exact opposite of what he said before.  Fauci's expertise is probably limited to surviving i a political bureaucracy to become the highest paid federal employee.

(09/08/2021) Border Patrol agent assaulted by smuggler while trying to stop migrants at the border; five arrested.  If this were a rarity it would be no biggie.  It isn't.  Trump had the border well under control.  And now? 

(09/07/2021) Christian University Commissions Murals of Trans Flag and Failed Dem Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams.  While many colleges were founded as Christian and (supposedly) still have that designation, most have long since abandoned any pretense of actually being Christian.

(09/07/2021) Our bargain for normal is failing.  Good article.  My only quibble is the use of the term "our."

(09/07/2021) Colorblind Is the Moral Ideal.  So it is.  But today, many of our academics and institutions are claiming colorblind to be racist.  Why?  I'll be blunt.  They do not want everyone to be held to the same standards of behavior.  They do not want to be judged by the content of their character, because their character - or the character of those they claim to speak on behalf of - is lacking.  Instead of aspiring to good character, they make excuses for bad character.  Sad.  No, sick, not sad.  Don't fall for it.

(09/07/2021) Psaki snaps at male reporter over question about abortion, Biden's faith: 'You've never faced those choices.'  Dare I say it?  For those on the left that claim to be Christian, most let their politics (and lifestyle) inform their faith rather than their faith (and Scripture) inform their politics.  But they hate having their faith questioned.

(09/06/2021) Teacher who told students to pledge allegiance to gay pride flag has been removed from the classroom.  Of course, she is on leave and I believe being paid.

(09/06/2021) Biden’s Presidency Is Already A Total Disaster, And It’s All His Own Fault.  To be fair, it is hard to determine how much is Biden and how much his handlers.

(09/04/2021) Where Is the Outrage?  You probably thought the Afghanistan withdrawal was a disaster.  Follow the link.  It was far worse than you thought.  And not just Afghanistan.

(09/04/2021) Heather Mullins on Massive Dropbox Stuffing Scandal: They Have Data from GA, AZ, WI and Several Other States – Average Leftist Operative Hit 23 Ballot Dropboxes a Night.  As if you need more info about how bad things are in America today.

(09/04/2021) Now NPR trashes free speech: Are the ruling elites looking to move in for the kill?  Well, conservative speech is already being censored and suppressed on social media, and one political party is encouraging this, along with various federal agencies.   So the question is, are we going to let them complete the kill?

(09/04/2021) What we left behind: VDH edition.  We left behind billions in equipment, some of it highly sophisticated.  All for the benefit of the Taliban,  and Russia and China and other enemies.  We could have removed plenty of it before withdrawing and we could have destroyed much of that we couldn't remove.  But we did not.  Why?  Sadly, "why?" is a question that our media and our "elites" have no interest in answering.

(09/04/2021) Too White: Plaster Is Racist Now, Too.  The world would be a much better place if the people that spent their time coming up with (and being paid for) this nonsense actually did something positive and beneficial.

(09/02/2021) Do Americans Have What it Takes to Fight Pure Evil?  First, we have to be willing to recognize it and name it when we see it.

(09/02/2021) 20 states sue Biden admin over guidance allowing biological males on girls’ sports teams.   

(09/02/2021) Who Needs Experts?  Good question.  Having a degree does not, in itself, qualify one as an expert.  And when so-called experts start playing politics, their "expertise" becomes meaningless.

(08/31/2021) Shameful: Nets Ignore ‘Terrified’ University Students Abandoned in Afghanistan to Taliban.  While the MSM hasn't let the Biden administration off the hook for the totally botched Afghanistan withdrawal, they are pulling a lot of punches.  This in one of many.

(08/31/2021) Cali Recall Chaos: Stolen Ballots Discovered, State Launches Probe Against Elder.  Sad to say, we have plenty of people in power that are willing to thwart the will of the people by cheating in elections.  The cheating can involve election fraud, it can involve spreading false rumors, it can involve censoring those who disagree.  Did I mention improper use of prosecutors and corruption of the judicial system and the rule of law?  All of these are occurring in America today, and most instances are to the benefit of the Democrats and the detriment of conservatives.

(08/30/2021) A Supreme Court That Capitulates On Roe V. Wade Will Unleash A Whirlwind.  Roe v. Wade was not the first SCOTUS decision where the court decided to, in essence, legislate and to the Constitution that which is clearly not there.  But the court has gotten worse and worse over time.  In the recent 6-3 ruling that the CDC did not have the power to impose a rent moratorium, the three liberal judges all dissented, declaring that the bureaucracy has the power to legislate.  Sort of like Obama's "phone and pen:" if Congress doesn't do what only it has the power to do, I'm going to do it anyway.  The fact is, Congress won't pass a rent moratorium because it can't - it doesn't have the votes. 

(08/30/2021) Alarming leaked cable shows how few US citizens have actually been evacuated from Afghanistan.  The administration has be rather vague about the total number of Americans evacuated, preferring to emphasize the total number of evacuees.  Most are Afghan, and while most are probably justifiably at risk from the Taliban, most are not screened, either.  How many terrorists are joining the ranks of the evacuees?

(08/30/2021) Conservative Purge Continues: Chase Bank Tells Gen. Michael Flynn They Are Closing His Accounts and Cancelling His Credit Cards; Claim Continuing to Allow the Decorated Veteran Access to His Accounts “Creates Reputational Risk”.  A number of corporations have taken it upon themselves to punish those they disagree with politically.  I see no exceptions to the rule of thumb that they are restricting themselves to punishing conservatives.  This is true in social media as well.  The question is, are they doing this on their own, or are they being encouraged / rewarded to do so by others?  Inquiring minds want to know, but sadly, there are apparently no inquiring minds in the media.  Not on this subjeect, at least.
