Is ‘Journalism’ Bottoming Out?

“My own headline, up above, wouldn’t pass muster with the Sacramento Bee. It should’ve been something like “Nude Journalists Caught Performing Human Sacrifice.” And watch the clicks come rolling in.”

(Lee Duigon – News With Views)  When I was a teenager, we used to get a lot of good belly-laughs out of crazy tabloid headlines. “Bigfoot Kept Lumberjack as Love Slave!” “Mad Dentist Rips Out Patient’s Tongue.” And “Girl Too Ugly to Go to School,” complete with clumsy composite photo that wouldn’t fool a five-year-old. These guys were writing click bait before clicks were invented. Continue reading

Dr. Fauci Suggests a Federal Mask Mandate May Be Necessary

“The obvious difficulty in issuing a federal mask mandate is how to make it enforceable.  Maybe we could take a page from the Chinese secret police playbook. It worked for them.”

(Rick Moran – PJ Media)  Dr. Anthony Fauci says it might be necessary for Washington to impose a mask mandate on all 50 states, given the worrisome rise in coronavirus cases across the U.S. Fauci made the remarks during an interview on CNN. Continue reading

A plea to my evangelical friends for Biden…who support his progressive socialist policies

“In thinking of the future of our children and grandchildren, we must ask if a political movement that integrates into its system without difficulty the wholesale slaughter of babies can be represented as a “biblically-shaped ethic.” Abortion is not an efficient solution to unwanted pregnancy. This ethic is shaped by the rejection of God the Creator.”

(Peter Jones – truthxchange)  How should genuine Christians vote in the up-coming presidential election? Recently a group called “pro-life evangelicals for Biden” sought to answer that question…. Continue reading

Card. Burke: No Catholic is Bound by Pope Francis’ Call for Gay Civil Unions or Gay Families

“First of all, the context and the occasion of such declarations make them devoid of any magisterial weight. They are rightly interpreted as simple private opinions of the person who made them.”

(Michael W. Chapman – CNS News)  Citing Holy Scripture and the centuries-old teaching of the Catholic Church, Cardinal Raymond Burke, an American, said no Catholic is bound to support the recent statements by Pope Francis in support of gay civil unions and gay families. Continue reading

Reformed Theological Seminary partners with convicted Clinton donor to launch Center for Reformed Theology

RTS president Ligon Duncan wrote the forward to Eric Mason’s infamous book Woke Church.

“Tong’s influence and prominence among some Reformed Americans is growing. In fact, D.A Carson, John Piper (a now avowed anti-Trump Christian), Sinclair Ferguson, Steven Lawson, and Timothy Keller were speakers at Tong’s Jakarta Conference during October 2020.” 

(Capstone Report)  Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS) partnered with convicted Clinton donor James Riady to launch the Center for Reformed Theology in Indonesia. Riady violated campaign finance laws that resulted in the largest fine for campaign finance violations in US history. But that has not stopped Riady’s involvement with and donations to evangelical institutions like BIOLA, RTS and Arkansas Baptist Convention affiliated Ouachita Baptist University. Continue reading

Justin Peters Ministries Asks Whether or Not Beth Moore is Demon-Possessed

“Unbeknownst to me, He’s been writing each chapter on my heart for several years. When the message for this book was complete (in His estimation — not mine!), God compelled me to ink it on paper with a force of the Holy Spirit unparalleled in my experience. He whisked me to the mountains of Wyoming where I entered solitary confinement with Him, and in only a few short weeks, I wrote the last line.”

(Protestia) Justin Peters Ministries, which has been critical of Beth Moore in the past, took an even firmer stance against the Belle of the Southern Baptist Ball by posting an article on their Facebook page and asking the question whether or not Moore is demonically possessed. Continue reading

Debate Recap: Trump Was in Command While Biden Told a Bunch of Whoppers

“Biden’s claim that his son has not made money in China is utterly, disgustingly false. In fact, there’s an entire movie about it!”

(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media) Democratic nominee Joe Biden lied his way through the final presidential debate with President Donald Trump. NBC News correspondent Kristen Welker interrupted Trump more than she interrupted Biden, and Biden was the first person to interrupt a fellow candidate on the stage. Nevertheless, this debate proved far more civil than the first debate. Continue reading

‘Here are the Facts’: Bobulinski Brings Trove of Receipts on Biden Family Foreign Deals

“I brought, I guess, for the record three phones that spanned the years 2015 to 2018 these phones have never been held by anybody else besides myself. I was told this past Sunday by somebody who was also involved in this matter that if I went public this information would be it would bury all of us, man.”

(Katie Pavlich – Townhall)  Just over an hour before the final presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden in Nashville Thursday night, former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski held a press conference….

BREAKING: Hunter Biden business associate’s text messages indicate meeting with Joe Biden

I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business,” Bobulinski said. “I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.”

(Brook Singman – Fox News) EXCLUSIVE: Text messages obtained by Fox News show the CEO of a Jim and Hunter Biden joint venture with a Chinese  energy firm discussing a meeting with Joe Biden in May 2017, despite past claims from the former vice president that he did not talk about his son’s business dealings. Continue reading

Russell Moore: This is not most important election of our lives?

“No amount of Neville Chamberlain like ERLC appeasement or David French style of existing as a cheese eating surrender monkey will satisfy the looming Big Tech-Big Business-Democrat-Technocratic-Totalitarianism.”

In a video published by The Gospel Coalition Russell Moore said the 2020 Presidential Election should not be viewed in apocalyptic terms for Christian voters. In other words, Dr. Moore deprecates the belief that 2020 represents the most important election in our lifetime…. Continue reading

Terrifying: Russia and Iran Accessed U.S. Voter Rolls. Here’s What They’re Doing With Them

“It is truly terrifying that Iran and Russia have accessed America’s voter registration records, but this does not necessarily give Americans reasons to fear that Iran or Russia will be able to tamper with the election results.”

(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media)  On Wednesday, Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe said both Russia and Iran have obtained U.S. voter registration information in an effort to interfere in the 2020 election. Continue reading

Bombshell Statement: Biden Insider Claims He Was ‘Recipient of the Email’, Says He Witnessed Joe, Hunter Discussing Deals

(Matthew Boyle – Breitbart)  A whistleblower CEO and Biden insider, Tony Bobulinski, released a public statement on Wednesday evening backing up the reporting of the New York Post from last week and claiming that he personally witnessed Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Bidreitarten discussing business deals with his son, Hunter Biden.

Sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News that Bobulinski is the person whose allegations and inside information are the centerpiece of a forthcoming investigation by the Wall Street Journal…. Continue reading

Will the Media Defeat Donald Trump?

“The question is, how did the national press become a political entity?  Why have standards of journalism collapsed?”

(Bill O’Reilly)  President Trump and everyone else knew that the NBC Townhall exposition would be contentious and that the ABC Townhall with Joe Biden, broadcast at the same time, would be gentle.

And that’s exactly what happened.

The NBC moderator, Savannah Guthrie, was under heavy pressure to make Donald Trump squirm…. Continue reading

Conservatives & Pro-Lifers Censored Over & Over by Big Tech: ‘The Single Greatest Threat to Democracy’

“We’ve analyzed and we’ve documented how 260 different users on Facebook and Twitter have had their posts about Biden scrubbed from social media.”

(Faithwire)  So many conservative sources on social media are getting censored so much right now, it’s making their allies in the US Senate wonder if there’s something that can be done to stop the censoring.

Facebook recently censored an online advertisement put out by the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, although each fact in it can be proven. Continue reading

Pope Endorses Same-Sex Civil Unions in New Documentary

(NewsMax) Pope Francis endorsed same-sex civil unions for the first time as pope while being interviewed for the feature-length documentary “Francesco,” which had its premiere at the Rome Film Festival on Wednesday.

The papal thumbs up came midway through the film that delves into issues he cares about most, including the environment, poverty, migration, racial and income inequality, and the people most affected by discrimination. Continue reading

America’s most powerful people want you to shut up about Hunter Biden

“Our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case,” the letter reads. Now, these are so-called “intelligence operatives.” But they offered no evidence to support that reckless, very serious claim. Why didn’t they offer any evidence? Because there is no evidence.

(Tucker Carlson – Fox News)  What happened to Joe Biden? Remember him? Longtime senator, Obama’s VP, now running for president and on the ballot in two weeks? He was last seen a couple of days ago buying milkshakes in North Carolina. Given Biden’s present condition, that is worrisome. If you see him wandering in a park or lost in the crafts aisle at Wal-Mart, be sure to alert authorities. Continue reading

Election 2020 exposes antichrists among Evangelicals

“Murder pleases the Devil. It is his raison d’être. He wants to destroy and murder. Anyone trying to help pro-abortion candidates is an antichrist, a false teacher, and is doing the work of the Devil.”

(Capstone Report)  “Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour.” I John 2:18

A new trend in Christian circles is to claim that voting for Democrats is acceptable for Christians. In fact, last night on Twitter, I was rebuked for making the case that Christians who support and vote Democrat deserve excommunication. Continue reading

Leftist ‘Rights’ vs. Your Freedom of Conscience

“Will you bend the knee to radical Marxists, or remain obedient to the truth of God? Will you be bullied into silence or stand on your convictions? Will you cower in your homes for fear of the pandemic, or will you stand and defend freedom for the sake of future generations?”

(Frank Wright – Townhall) The foundation of civilized society is freedom of conscience. But this core freedom is under severe assault from the Left. And that is frightening because all our constitutionally-enumerated freedoms rest on the bedrock liberty of conscience. Continue reading

America Is Drowning in the Lies of the Left

“The Trump 2016 campaign colluded with Russia to win the election. This lie has permeated the American media for more than three years. There was never any truth to it. But those on the left — the Democratic Party and the mainstream media — found it a very useful claim, and they are doing so again in the 2020 campaign.”

(Dennis Prager – Real Clear Politics)  There are conservatives who lie, and there are liberals who lie, but both conservatism and liberalism hold truth to be a supreme value. Continue reading

Cancer-stricken Rush Limbaugh says he can no longer deny he’s ‘under a death sentence’

(Fox News)  Cancer-stricken talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh provided listeners a somber update on his condition Monday after recent scans showed “some progression of cancer,” which he said is “not dramatic” but still a step in the wrong direction.

Limbaugh announced in February that he was diagnosed with  advanced lung cancer and had missed several shows this month to undergo treatment.  Continue reading

Pope Joins With Muslims and Buddhists For Ecumenical Prayer Service

The theme of No One Is Saved Alone is a squirrely one, however, with Francis repeating something similar in a tweet yesterday, saying “we are either all saved together or no one is saved.”

(Protestia)  On October 20, Pope Francis is joining up with members of other world religions to gather together for a time of prayer and to speak at an event entitled “No One Is Saved Alone – Peace and Fraternity.”

Vatican News reports that all the major world religions will gather to pray in their respective venues across the city in an ecumenical time of supplication: Continue reading

Director of National Intelligence says Hunter Biden laptop, emails ‘not part of some Russian disinformation campaign’

“It’s funny that some of the people who complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence,” Ratcliffe said. “Unfortunately, it is Adam Schiff who said the intelligence community believes the Hunter Biden laptop and emails on it are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.”

(Brook Singman – Fox News)  Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Monday said that Hunter Biden’s laptop “is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign,” amid claims from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff suggesting otherwise. Continue reading

Read The Gospels: JC Is Not PC

“Ignoring the normal rules of taste, tact, and diplomacy, Jesus in effect declared that all his listeners were sinners in need of redemption. He pointed out sin and condemned it. He knew very well that this would not win him any accolades.” 

(John MacArthur – Daily Wire)  Most of Jesus’ teaching is completely out of sync with the mores that dominate our culture.

I’m talking, of course, about the Jesus we encounter in Scripture, not the always-gentle, never-stern, über-lenient coloring-book character who exists only in the popular imagination…. Continue reading

Whoa. ‘Prosecutor’ Rudy Guiliani Details Devastating Case Against ‘Biden Crime Family’

(Victoria Taft – PJ Media)  Unless you depend exclusively upon Facebook and Twitter for news, you’ve probably heard of the shocking story about Hunter Biden’s shady dealings with China and Ukraine and the alleged kick backs given to “pops,” former Vice President Joe Biden.

The New York Post‘s story has been dismissed out of hand by some in the mainstream media – especially the embarrassing story press release written by the man who helped usher in the false Flynn and Trump-Is-a-Russian-Secret-Agent stories, The Washington Post‘s David Ignatius. Continue reading
