“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.

All new links will be first added to this page, and after a week or less, moved to the appropriate sub-page.  Hence, you can check this page for the newest items.  Updates made after the orignal post will be identified by bolded 'Update'.

 

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

(02/28/2021) Southern Baptists expel two churches for sex abuse and two for affirming homosexuality.  It is high time that the church stands up for biblical values and resists the negative influence of contemporary culture. 

(02/28/2021) CNN's Anderson Cooper invokes genocide comparison to describe Trump supporters who stormed Capitol.  So speaks someone who supports the cancel culture and believes that Trump supporters should be punished.  On top of that, it is pretty clear that Cooper doesn't know what genocide means.  At least, the body count of victims of Trump supporters is remarkably small for genocide.

(02/28/2021)  The New York City public school system honors JoAnne Chesimard.  She's a convicted terrorist and cop-killer, but no biggie.  She's a Leftie (communist).

(02/27/2021) Christian Response to the Cancel Culture. Things are truly going downhill.  I would argue that it is better to fight the downward trends than to be prepared to accept what happens if we get there.

(02/27/2021) Acronyms now are racist.  I think that a good case can be made that anything that is promoted as "anti-racist" is almost certainly racist itself.

(02/26/2021) Hillary Clinton: We Need to Protect Abortion “For Our Grandkids”.  I keep thinking of all those kids and grandkids that never saw the light of day.  What about them?

(02/26/2021) Jen Psaki’s History Comes Back To Bite Her – She’s Done.  Sadly, she is not "done." Promote the fake Russian hoax?  Has anyone been punished for that?  Despite spending a fortune investigating and finding nothing, a majority of Democrats still believe it.  And insulting Trump supporters?  Trump supporters - and dealing with them - is the top priority of Democrat voters, according to a survey - outpacing, "white privilege" and systemic racism and all other issues.  Nope, Jen Psaki just reflects Democrat values.  She isn't doing anything to promote the unity that Biden has declared himself in favor of, you say?  Did anyone take that seriously?

(02/25/2021) Conservatives Need to Start Taking No Prisoners and Claiming Scalps.  Yes, we do.  All of us.  It would be nice if more of our elected "leaders" chose to do the same.

(02/25/2021) Inches From Eternity: Tiger Woods Survives Terrifying Car Accident.  I am a strong believer in the fact that it is never too late to accept Christ.  The problem is, if you put it off, you may never get the chance.  This life can end very suddenly.  Poof.  This article riffs into revival and for that alone, is worth reading.  We need revival.  And revival is something that has to occur within the church.  Don't think that needed revival means it needs to happen to others.  It needs to start with the church, our church, your church.  When that happen, a by-product is that outsiders are drawn in.  But the church has to revive first.

(02/25/2021) Will a Hard-Left Turn Lead to Pushback?  Who knows?  The problem is that this "hard-left turn" was not only predictable, but it was predicted by many on the Right.  None of us are surprised by it.  But the media did their job, pretending that Biden is a moderate.  They called Harris moderate, as well, even though she had the most, bar none, left-wing voting record in the Senate!  And they are not going to stop pretending that is still the case.  As our federal government continues to implement a far left agenda, the media will pretend it is all middle of the road.  Alas, far too many Republicans who should be fighting this tooth and nail (what else did we elect them for?) will do little to stop this.

(02/25/2021) Losing An American Genius.  Good tribute to Rush.

(02/25/2021) The Equality Act.  This bill is worse than a mere disaster for anyone who takes Scripture seriously.  It is a disaster for vast numbers of small business owners.  It is a disaster for girls' and women's sports.  It is a disaster for non-profits.  And more.  Naturally the media is not going to be telling people just what this bill will do.  Read the article.  Note that while Trump may have made three appointments to the Supreme Court, the odds are  not good that the Court would overturn this legislation even though some aspects are clearly unconstitutional.  Why?  "Precedent" will be the excuse.  

(02/24/2021) Certifiably crazy times in America.  It is bad enough that crazy things are happening.  But our government is doing a lot of them, encouraging more of them, and the results are going to be (and currently are proving to be) very, very damaging - both culturally and financially.  The literal destruction of America is proceeding apace and we have very few leaders with the gumption to really, really fight it.  I pray that we get a lot more than some mealy-mouthed platitudes.

(02/24/2021)  Congressional Democrats pressure companies to censor Fox News and conservative channels.  And yes, this is violating the First Amendment.  Nice little business you have going there.  It would be a shame if something were to happen to it (by the authority of government).  That absolutely, positively is the government censoring speech.  Will the courts so rule?  Well, they certainly don't take the Tenth Amendment and the enumerated powers seriously .  But many of us do take the Constitution seriously and we need to defend it.

(02/24/2021) Hollywood actor slammed for xenophobic tweet mocking Melania Trump's accent.  But, but, ...  I have been reliably told that it is those on the Left that are tolerant and accepting of everyone.  By the way, I am pretty sure that in her four years of being First Lady, Melania did not appear on a single magazine cover.  I wonder why.

(02/24/2021) Agent Fired from Literary Agency for Using Parler and Gab.  I am always a bit suspicious when people claim they were fired for reasons such as this.  After all, no one likes to admit they were fired because of their own failings.  But I will say that claims by conservatives of being fired for doing conservative things seem to hold up better than similar claims by liberals for doing liberal things.  And it is certainly consistent with the cancel culture which is demanding that conservatives be fired.

(02/23/2021) How to Fight Back Against Racist Attacks on White Americans.  Explicitly discriminating against people on account of race is illegal.  That is why we used to use tricky little get-arounds like affirmative action.  But why bother nowadays?  Just explicitly discriminate against whites.  Woke judges can be counted on to ignore little things like the Constitution and the law.

(02/23/2021) It’s Getting Harder Being Green.  Yes, Disney has decided that The Muppet Show requires a nonsensical disclaimer pointing out how offensive it might be to some.  Sheesh.  But don't consider it a trivial. silly thing.  It may be silly, but it isn't trivial.  It is all part of the ongoing effort to indoctrinate us in the progressive worldview.  And it is having a great deal of success.

(02/23/2021) Biden's Alternate 'Reality Czar.'  How about "Ministry of Truth?"  If we ever wondered how the USSR and other countries sank into the nonsensical absurdities of 1984, wonder no more.  Many are pushing those very things for America today. Here is more: Biden Regime To Take Over Social Media and Institute Total Censorship.  This article is over the top, since this isn't necessarily going to happen, as the title implies.  But it is being advocated and that, in itself, is shocking.

(02/23/2021) New Poll Shows Majority of Americans are Pro-Life, Oppose All or Most Abortions.  Abortion is far from the only issue where the view of a majority of Americans is more in line with the GOP than with the Democrats.  Why is it then, that so many vote Democrat even when the Democrats do not represent their views?  Part of it is surely the vilification of the GOP by the media.  I shouldn't discount out education system, which does more indoctrinating than educating and promotes feelings over thinking.

(02/22/2021) Democrats Target Cable Providers for Carrying Fox, Newsmax, OANN.  They really do want to shut down all those who voice opposition to the Democrats.

(02/22/2021) Must Christians Submit to Evil Authorities?  Good question, but no.

(02/20/2021) Biden's spite against Trump is going to come back to bite him.  The Democrats have always assumed that, despite all the horrible pejoratives they assign to conservatives, the conservatives will be nice and not treat the Dems like Dems treat conservatives. That could change as they sink lower and lower and get nastier and nastier.

(02/20/2021) Comey Calls For The Republican Party To Be “Burned Down.”  How sweet. 

(02/19/2021) Bo Snerdley recalls Rush

(02/19/2021) Unity Watch: Democrats Introduce a Bill to Punish Trump When He Dies.  The Democrats preach unity, yet everything - everything - they are doing is divisive. When they say "unity" they really mean conformity - conforming to their agenda.  Or else.  If you do not, you will be punished. It is hard to believe they can be as petty as this, but they are.  Nothing is too low.

(02/19/2021) Nearly Half Of Texas’ Wind Turbines Frozen In Winter Storm, Limiting State’s Power Output.  This isn't the only problem with wind turbines.  They are unreliable, expensive, short life-span, un-recycleable, use lots of resources in construction and maintenance, kill birds.  But they allow people who promote and / or build them to feel morally superior while pocketing all sorts of government subsidies.  Remember, it isn't results that are important, only proclaimed intentions.

(02/19/2021) New York School Encourages Parents To Become ‘White Traitors,’ ‘White Abolitionists.’  The Left has no qualms about pushing their agenda on our kids - as false as it is, with an unblemished record of failure.  And they do this using your taxes to fund it!  And we let them do it!

(02/19/2021) ‘Hate Being Spewed In The Name Of Patriotism’: WaPo Opinion Attacks Anthem Before Games.  This is just part of the plan; denigrate everything that demonstrates love for America and anything good about America.  What is the problem?  The problem isn't the national anthem.  The problem is that many hate their country while reaping all the benefits of being American.  Address the real problem; don't make it worse.  But America haters want to make it worse.  Don't play along.

(02/19/2021) Noted leftists celebrate Rush Limbaugh's death with hateful tweets: 'Bigoted King of Talk Radio.'  How can this be?  We are repeatedly told that they are the tolerant ones, the ones that practice love, not hate.

(02/18/2021) Dan Crenshaw has created a handy-dandy list of conservative principles.  It is a very good list.  I agree with every one.  I wonder how many, if any, the Democrats would agree with.  Publicly.

(02/18/2021) US Navy task force makes sailors pledge to 'advocate for and acknowledge all lived experiences and intersectional identities.'  Well, they got started on this some time ago, but the Left (Democrats) are doing to the military what they do to everything else - politicizing it and hence, destroying it. If you haven't noticed, they are doing this to Christianity, as well, all the while proclaiming that it is conservatives politicizing their faith.

(02/17/2021) Democrats rely on myth to defend their unwillingness to compromise.  For Democrats, "compromise" means conservatives yielding to Democrat demands.  Sort of like "unity" means abandoning the conservative side and going over to the Left.

(02/17/2021) Democrats edit impeachment video to conveniently exclude Trump's call to protest ‘peacefully.'  In a court of law, most judges - even liberal ones - would have a real problem with this.  But this wasn't the full extent of the Democrats doctoring evidence.  The problem is that we have rejected many biblical values that used to be generally accepted.  And that includes good character and honesty.  Many, especially on the Left, really do believe that the ends justify the means.  Using Satan's tools for what they imagine to be their perfect ends, is justified.  I still wonder how many of them really believe the purity of their ends.  For many (most?) is is really just an excuse to justify their lust for power and control (and wealth?).
