“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.

  • spiritual readiness (warfare) - We are at war, so be prepared.

  • 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.

(06/22/2021) Media Blackout Over Georgia Shooting.  All the news that fits the narrative.  If it doesn't fit, it isn't worth people knowing about.

(06/21/2021) Biden DOJ: Preventing Males From Competing 'Does Nothing' to Protect 'Athletic Opportunities for Girls.'  It doesn't?

(06/21/2021) Vermont town fires high school lifeguard for questioning CRT. 

(06/20/2021) Happy Father’s Day: Time to Cowboy Up.  Gloria Steinem said that a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. That could be true if she is referring to feminists.  But a kid definitely needs a father.  That does not fit the progressive narrative, so the problem of absent fathers is ignored.  Rather. the pathologies associated with absent fathers is blamed on racism and the like.  You cannot fix a problem if you refuse to recognize the cause of the problem.

(06/20/2021) Our Feckless State Department Is an Embarrassment.  I'll try to be tactful.  Bureaucracies are full of people who care much more about the "process" than about human lives. 

(06/20/2021) Fighting Back Against Evil.  The evil is CRT, which is racism, plain and simple.  And it must be fought.  Far too often we have simply left the battlefield to the other guys and then seem genuinely surprised that we have lost, yet again.  More: Media Panics Over Mounting Opposition to Critical Race Theory.  And so they should.  But they are fighting back and fighting hard.  Needless to say, lying is a major part of their counteroffensive.

(06/20/2021) Puerto Rican Couple Yanked From Their Car and Shot By Mob of Black Men in Chicago.  One dead, one critical.  But never forget, white supremacists are to blame for all this.  So we are told from the president on down.  Yes, our country has problems.  No, they cannot be fixed if we are continually lied to by the people that have the greatest power to fix things.  And so we are (lied to).

(06/20/2021) Victoria's Secret goes woke.  I keep repeating that the left politicizes everything it touches.  And as a result, ruins it.  It boggles my mind that corporations think that going "woke" is going to return value to the shareholders.  But then I realize that marketing departments are being taken over by young, woke hotshots who couldn't care less about the bottom line and providing what customers desire.  They receive praise from other wokes, and that is all that matters to them.

(06/11/2021) The left is working overtime to sexualize your children.  We are talking "pride" month here.  Nothing like glorifying sin.  What is even more horrifying is that if you merely promote heterosexual sex within marriage - without criticizing anything else - you will be condemned as a hater and apologies will be demanded.  But glorifying sinful and very unhealthy lifestyles is to be applauded.

(06/11/2021) WaPo fact-checker notes there’s now ‘serious new reporting’ on previously debunked Trump claim of Wuhan lab leak.  Nothing like "fact checkers" who can be totally wrong, yet they self-justify explaining how they were justified in being wrong.  No they weren't.  Simple question.  When a new virus springs up in a city where there is a lab experimenting with deadly viruses, what is the logical first conclusion?  Only the willfully blind - or bribed - could conclude that there was no connection.

(06/11/2021) Caitlyn Jenner Rejected By The Transexual Community And Accused Of Being A Hypocrite.  Of course there are hypocrites everywhere.  But it is a bit rich coming from the "woke" community that demands that if you are a leftie on anything, you must be a leftie on everything, no matter how insane.

(06/10/2021) School Board Ruckus! NY Elected Official Screams Obscenities at Parents Over Objections to CRT.  Just face it, far too many elected officials think their job is to dictate to the people rather than to serve the people.

(06/10/2021) Democrat state senator in Connecticut proposes bill to force people to vote.  Democrats are fairly certain that low information voters - voters that know almost nothing about either the issues or the candidates - are more likely to vote Democrat if forced.  Of course they favor making voting mandatory.  I feel that if you consider voting to be more trouble than it is worth, then you definitely should not vote!

(06/10/2021) Second Staffer To Senate Democrat Sentenced To Federal Prison For Plot Against Republicans.  As a former Leftie, I know that people on the left are so persuaded of the "rightness" of their cause, that any and all tactics are fully justified.  That includes minimizing or suppressing news like this.

(06/07/2021) The United Nations, porn, and your child.  Good grief.  UNICEF thinks it is a human rights violation to block your child from porn.  I really can't think of a single good reason to remain part of the UN - and foot the lion's share of the budget.

(06/07/2021) Hate hoax: School said 'person of color' created Instagram account from which racist messages were sent to students, police reports reveal.  What else is new?  If you assume hoax, you are almost certain to be correct.  Note that it is a crime to make a false report to the police, but rarely are these perps charged.

(06/07/2021) Tap dancing with Tapper.  Just face it, those on the left feel entirely comfortable lying to promote their agenda and to make themselves look good (in the eyes of fellow lefties).  And their fellow lefties apparently have no problem with such lies.  All for the cause, I suppose.

(06/05/2021) Pastors, for the Love of God and Your People, Use Your Authority!  Interesting.

(06/05/2021) A Stranger in a Strange Land: A Modest Compendium of Recent Assaults on the Laws and Traditions of our Nation.  Okay, it is pretty depressing.  The question is, are we going to sit around and be depressed or are we going to start doing something about it?  One man, even Donald Trump, can't fix things by himself.  But millions, doing what they can (as opposed to sitting is a deep blue funk) can do a great deal.  Suggestions welcome.

(06/05/2021) Left-Wing Catholic Paper Accuses U.S. Bishops of Worshiping at ‘MAGA Church.’  That is, worshiping Donald Trump rather than Jesus Christ.  It would certainly be interesting if they could come up with a single example, but of course they can't.  They'll settle for claiming that being a strong supporter of Trump qualifies as "worshiping."

(06/04/2021) Looting for Winston Smith or someone like him.  Another criminal with a significant rap sheet shot and killed by police after he pulled a gun on them.  The deceased was black, so naturally "unrest" followed.  At least it does not look like the authorities considered the "protests" to be mostly peaceful. 

(06/04/2021) ‘Get The Hell Out!’: MSNBC Host Says Anyone Questioning 2020 Election Should Be Replaced By Immigrants.  It should be noted that for the MSM and the Democrats, reporting on possible election fraud qualifies as "fake news." There have been hundreds, if not thousands, of sworn affidavits reporting abnormalities.  And the claims that all courts have ruled that there was no fraud is itself fake news because all the rulings have been based on standing, not evidence.  Now,of course, some states are investigating and some judges are getting involved. And the Democrats and their flunkies are in a panic.  It doesn't give you a lot of confidence in their assurances that there was no fraud, does it?

(06/04/2021) Fired for criticism of Black crime.  I'm always a little suspicious when people claim to have been fired unreasonably.  No one likes to admit they were incompetent in their work.  Judge this as you will.  But black crime is a very, very serious problem and the media works overtime suppressing the reporting of it.  It is quite likely that most people do not realize it is as bad as it is, as a result.  Fights and brawls breaking out in public?  Almost always black perps (and usually black victims).  Mobs looting stores?   Almost always blacks.  Homicides?  Around 50% of all homicides are committed by blacks and their victims are mostly black.  Rather than address the very genuine problem, politicians and the media prefer to deny that there is a problem.  And things get worse and worse. 

(06/03/2021) Fauci Was Informed of Hydroxychloroquine Success in Early 2020 But Lied to Public Instead Despite the Science #FauciEmails.  Of course, Fauci wasn't the only one.  HCQ was cheap and safe and of no risk if it were used and proved ineffective.  But Politicians and their cronies deliberately maligned it for political purposes.  Evil is the proper description.

(06/02/2021) Biden Kills Trump Order Honoring Hundreds In ‘Garden Of American Heroes’.  Petty. 

(06/02/2021) Planned Parenthood CEO: It’s “Cruel” to Protect Babies From Abortion.  Given a voice, I suspect the babies would beg to differ.

(06/01/2021) US Army to prioritize fight against climate change.  Oh goody.  As usual, the Democrats politicize everything, including the military.  So our military's prime objective now is to promote Democrat politics, not to defend our country, 

(06/01/2021) Fund the Police and Build the Wall: House Democrats Pass $1.9 Billion Capitol Security Bill.  Nice to know that our lawmakers are far more concerned with their own safety than with the safety of the people they represent.  This is rather ironic.  Not a single Republican voted for this bill, yet most of the places that suffered from last year's protest are represented by Democrats.  Draw your own conclusions.

(06/01/2021) Biden Imports Oil from Iran After Shutting Down Keystone Pipeline and Putting US Oil Workers Out of Work.  Good grief, we became energy independent under Trump and now we are deliberately returning to dependence on our enemies.  This is sheer insanity.  The article calls it evil and I have to agree.

(05/31/2021)  ‘We Are All Jews Here.’  You definitely want to read this.  After a large number of Americans were captured by the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge, almost 1,300 NCOs were sent to a POW camp.  The Commandant ordered all Jews to fall out.  Knowing their likely fate, the senior NCO,

(05/31/2021) America’s honor.  We still have some.

(05/31/2021) The Morning Brew for Memorial Day 2021.  I'm not sure that we, as a nation, have our priorities straight.  From the Gettysburg Address: It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

(05/31/2021) Kamala Harris’ Tardy Notice of Memorial Day Highlights What We All Know About the Democrat Base.  And it isn't good.

(05/31/2021) Biden Says Illegal Immigrants are ‘What the American Dream Represents.’  Actually, it is legal immigrants that represent the American Dream.

(05/30/2021) ACLU Corruption Revealed.  I would not be surprised if a majority of non-profits have degenerated from focusing on a cuase to focusing on themselves. 

(05/30/2021) The Mob is After Chip and Joanna Gaines Again, This Time Over Critical Race Theory.  Do we need any more evidence?  The Left is out to silence and punish conservatives - especially Christian conservatives.  And they are being quite successful.

(05/29/2021) Rutgers University Chancellor Christopher J. Molloy Condemns the Rise in Antisemitic Violence; and then Apologizes for Doing So.  One should never apologize for speaking the truth.  Sadly, our culture is being dictated to, not by those who speak the truth, but by those who can't handle the truth.

(05/29/2021) Evidence That the Gospels are Based on Eyewitness Testimony. Pretty interesting.

(05/29/2021) Is Jen Psaki Really This Clueless on Gas Prices?  No, but she is hoping you are. 

(05/29/2021) Dems Admit COVID Rhetoric Backfired, Media Scrambles To Fix. Could Cost Them Mid-Terms & Much MORE!  From a political perspective they are certainly trying to fix their mess.  From the perspective of fixing things for the good of the country, not so much.

(05/29/2021) The Israel Defense Forces carried out a deadly bait-and-switch.  They made use of the MSM to carry disinformation.  Trump knew how to manipulate a media thta was hostile to him.  Israel does the same.  Too bad most of the GOP doesn't have a clue.

(05/28/2021) Converting Democracy into Tyranny.  We are certainly working hard at it.

(05/28/2021) The Richest Homeless in the World.  Most homeless "advocates" are in it for themselves, not so much the people they supposedly advocate for.  What about the homeless?  Most are either mentally ill or they are drug addicts.  Some are merely down and out.  If you want to help the homeless, you have to determine which category they belong to.  The former two must go into a treatment program to receive any aid.  Some will choose not to and to be honest, I'm not sure whether to toss them in the equivalent of jail to force them to.  In any case, they should not be enabled by providing aid.  As for the down and out, give them work to do in return for receiving aid.  There is plenty of work that needs doing - starting with cleaning up our typically trashy cities.  Question.  Do any homeless advocates this kind of solution?  Of course not.  All they advocate for is chaos and money.

(05/28/2021) Republicans Keep Making Completely Unforced Errors So The Media Will Like Them.  This is a common mistake that many make.  Compromise your principles with the mistaken belief that you will gain favor with your enemies.  You will definitely lose respect and it is very doubtful that you will gain any favors, either.  Republicans need to understand that the rulebook they are playing with is nothing like the one the Democrats use.

(05/28/2021) America’s Un-Civil War: Secularists vs. Believers.  This is a re-print, and well worth reading.  We have a political divide in this country, to be sure.  But that isn't the fundamental divide.  Rather than "secularists" and "believers," I think a better description is between those that put their faith in God and those that put their faith in man. 

(05/28/2021) Canadian Church Ordered to Close, Congregation Meets Outside.  This is why we have a First Amendment.  And this is also why the Democrats are trying hard to water down or get rid of the First Amendment.  Do not doubt for a minute that if they could, the Democrats would ban any sound biblical speech that they deemed "hateful."  Which would be anything that ran counter to their latest narrative.

(05/28/2021) Spanish MP suspended from Twitter after declaring 'a man cannot get pregnant': 'Fascist biology.'  It should be noted that the suicide rate for those that undergo "sex change" treatment is just as high as for those with "gender dysphoria" that do not.  I don't know whether the rate goes down for those that get treatment for their mental issues or not.  It would be worth knowing, would it not?  But rest assured that the activists would shut down any reporting of studies that showed an improvement.  As with everyghing else the left gets involved in, the objective is furthering an agenda, not actually helping people.

(05/28/2021) Ami Horowitz Video: Raising Money From Woke Students for Hamas to Kill Jews.  The fact that this is relatively successful is very disheartening.  To be fair, our youth, given that they tend to be totally lacking in critical thinking skills, will go with the latest left-wing narrative without giving it a second thought.  If they ever learn to think, they might change.

(05/27/2021) FRC, Barna band together to advance biblical worldview.  Looks interesting - there's a link at the link.  According to Barna, only 6% of Americans actually have a biblical worldview!  This new project aims to improve that number.

(05/27/2021) The border joke may be on the Democrats.  One can always hope.

(05/27/2021) USA Today Edits Teen Girl’s Op-ed for ‘Hurtful’ Language on Trans Athletes.  She called boys that compete in girl's sports "male."  It is bad enought that we have raised millions and millions of snowflakes and pansies.  But they now get to dictate to everyone else. 

(05/27/2021) MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and the Democrats Are Frightened to Death of the Election Audit “Freight Train” Coming Down the Tracks.  The Democrats have gotten used to getting their way pretty much all the time.  Let us pray that this is starting to change.

(05/25/2021) Twitter Mob Comes For Mark Ruffalo After He Does Something Right For Once. Nothing the Left hates more than an apostate.  As a Leftie, you must get dizzy from having to keep changing your mind as you work hard to keep up with the latest progressive narrative.  You'd think that the cognitive dissonance would be devastating to the left, but you would be wrong.  It is very difficult to have cognitive dissonance when you have no critical thinking skills.

(05/25/2021) Jonathan Turley: Prince Harry and 'bonkers' First Amendment – take this threat to free speech seriously.  Free speech is already being suppressed by the cancel culture, social media and more.  Democrats yearn to be able to use the power of government to improve the efficiency of their suppression.  They naturally assume that they are going to be in charge of what speech is acceptable and what is not.

(05/25/2021) Catholic Insiders Reveal Biden’s Secret – White House Scrambling.  Apparently the White House is bringing in militant atheists as advisors on faith-based initiatives.  I do hope that this isn't what is the general attitude of "devout Catholics."

(05/24/2021) US Embassies to Honor George Floyd.  We belittle the likes of Ben Carson as Oeros and Uncle Toms, and honor criminals and junkies like George Floyd.  Sick, sick, sick.  Never go along with this disgraceful nonsense.

(05/23/2021) Anger ensues after pro-trans book read to 1st graders. But school board president — who runs 'all ages' sex shop — says 'vitriol' shows need to 'support trans kids.'  Sheesh.

(05/23/2021) Catholic Archbishop on Biden and Pelosi: You “Absolutely” Can’t be Good Catholics and Promote Abortion.  Given that practically speaking, you can only be Catholic by choice, then you shouldn't choose to remain Catholic if you won't subscribe to Catholic teachings.  I realize that many politicians are using their Catholicism for political purpose, but the church is not obliged to play along.
