Standing with the Little Guys

“At a time when Biblically faithful colleges and seminaries are under incredible pressure to conform to this world just to survive, it is vital that we do not compromise the truth and morality of the Christian faith.” 

(Barry York – Gentle Reformation)  As part of my duties as president of our denominational seminary, over the last month I attended the national meetings of several NAPARC churches…. Continue reading

Are Climate Lockdowns Next?

“Marc Morano also said the radical left Senate Majority leader, Chuck Schumer is urging Biden to declare a national climate emergency. Why? Just like a blue-state governor, Biden would then be able to use emergency powers.”

(David Fiorazo) If you think government, media, and Hollywood propaganda on ‘the shot’ and ‘staying safe’ is bad now, get ready. We may soon be seeing what some are calling “climate lockdowns.”…. Continue reading

Wake Me When It’s Over

“Being woke is a time-consuming hobby. You have to be constantly vigilant, on guard against racist behavior by white folks. You must be easily offended by the un-woke and point out their many, many mistakes.” 

(Bill O’Reilly)  Where are all these woke people? I can’t find them. I’ve looked and even asked some acquaintances: “are you woke?”

No one will admit it. Continue reading

Discernment Challenge: If You See Something, Say Something. Be ‘That Guy’

(JD Hall – Protestia)  If You See Something, Say Something is a public service campaign started by the New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority, now licensed by the Department of Homeland Security and has become popularized in use by police departments and transit officers across the country. It’s printed on posters and in radio PSAs, announced over loudspeakers at train depots, airports and bus stations, and printed on fliers dispersed at sporting events. Chiefly the notion is this; if you see something suspicious, just say something.

The success behind the propaganda is based upon a simple supposition. People, the authorities suppose, don’t feel qualified to make sophisticated intelligence briefings to the authorities, and that prevents people speaking up when they see something. Therefore, people need to know that what they need to do is just say something. Saying something is better, the ad relays, than saying nothing. Saying something might save lives or prevent a terrorist attack.

Not a day goes by that Protestia doesn’t get a question in the email of Pulpit Bunker that goes something like this… Continue reading

Joint Chiefs Chairman Compared Trump to Hitler, MAGA to Nazi ‘Brownshirts’

In the lead-up to a pro-Trump “Million MAGA March” protest in November, Milley compared the protesters to the Nazi “brownshirts,” the militia that fueled Hitler’s rise to power. The Joint Chiefs chairman told staff that he feared the protest “could be the modern American equivalent of ‘brownshirts in the streets.’”

(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media) After the 2020 election, Army General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, compared President Donald Trump to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler and Trump’s supporters in the MAGA movement to Nazi brownshirts. This only further underscores conservative fears about President Joe Biden’s efforts to root out “extremism” in the military. Continue reading

Trump Winds and Biden Whirlwinds

“Why in our 233rd year of the republic are Democrats so intent to destroy the Electoral College, pack the court, admit new states to the Union, junk the filibuster, and federalize national election laws? What was so wrong with assimilation, integration, intermarriage, the “content of our character,” and race as incidental rather than essential to who we are? What has the woke revolution offered us instead?”

(Victor Davis Hanson – American Greatness)  Victimizers quickly becoming victims is a recurrent theme of Thucydides’ history. In his commentary on the so-called stasis at Corcyra, he offers his most explicit warning about the long-term dangers of destroying legal institutions, customs, and traditions that serve the common good for short-term gain. Continue reading

‘Dumb Dogs’ in the Pulpit: Spurgeon on Borrowed Sermons

“Spurgeon would spend much of the night studying the Scriptures, trying out different “skeletons” (sermon outlines), and praying for the Spirit to guide him in preparing the sermon.” 

(Geoff Chang – The Spurgeon Center)  Iain Murray once observed that Spurgeon wrote and preached so much that people can basically cherry-pick quotes from his works to support virtually any position, even those he would’ve adamantly opposed…. Continue reading

Surviving In A World Gone Mad

(Judi McLeod – Canada Free Press)  How to survive in a world gone mad? It starts with refusing to be duped by governments, their bureaucracies and the media.  A virus, hyped as a pandemic—with a 99 percent recovery rate—isn’t going to kill off the world—no matter what ‘scientists’ a la Dr. Anthony Fauci predict.

Fauci, his pal Bill Gates and their ilk need to spray lots of Windex on their smoggy crystal balls. Continue reading

Hunter Biden’s Laptop Confirms ‘Joe Biden Was a Direct Beneficiary’ of His Son’s Deals

(Robert Kraychik – Breitbart)  Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), said on Monday that his organization had confirmed that President Joe Biden “was a direct beneficiary” of Hunter Biden’s financial deals with foreign interests.

“We do have a copy, by the way, here at GAI of [Hunter Biden’s] laptop and all the files,” Schweizer said on the Sean Hannity Show. “It confirms that Joe Biden was a direct beneficiary.” Continue reading

Educators face termination for proposing male-only, female-only bathrooms in schools

(Greg Piper – Just The News) Oregon educators are fighting for their jobs after starting a campaign to keep biological males and females in their own school restrooms and locker rooms and make it optional for school employees to use their students’ preferred gender pronouns.

Assistant principal Rachel Damiano and science teacher Katie Medart of North Middle School face a pre-termination hearing before the school board Thursday…. Continue reading

Pentagon Pauses Its Woke Soul-Searching PowerPoints Long Enough to Notice that Afghanistan Is Falling to the Taliban

(Bryan Preston – PJ Media)  With Tucker Carlson sparring with the National Security Agency and critical race theory becoming a hot topic among school boards nationwide, the Pentagon took time out from its own divisive and unit-wrecking extremism lectures long enough to notice that the Taliban is sweeping across Afghanistan. Fox reports:

Pentagon officials are watching the Taliban’s sweeping advances in Afghanistan “with deep concern” and are encouraging its Afghan partners to “step up” and defend their country amid the pullout of U.S. forces, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said Sunday.

NAR ‘Apostle’ Bill Johnson’s Wife’s Cancer Has Returned

In April 2017, while singing “By the Blood,” Beni Johnson’s daughter-in-law, Jenn Johnson, asked members of Bethel Church in Redding CA to pray for a “cancer free zone” during a worship service. Four years later Beni is undergoing chemo. Protestia has the story:

Bethel Church Head Honcho Bill Johnson has announced that his wife and co-pastor of Bethel Church is presently undergoing chemotherapy as a result of 3 large tumors inside her body that were revealed by a CT scan. Continue reading

Eric Metaxas Has Completely Lost It

“This false gospel of believing that we can create our own existence through our faith is heretical.”

(Reformation Charlotte)  Eric Metaxas used to be someone who, while not completely devoted to sound doctrine, his version of “mere Christianity” at least fell somewhere between the bounds of orthodoxy–even if grazing the very edge of it. In recent years, however, that can no longer be the case. Like Max Lucado, Metaxas has traded the gospel for politics like Francis Chan, for an extra-biblical experiential high. Continue reading

We’re Coming for Your Children’ Songwriting Team Forced to Cancel Musical Accused of ‘Romanticizing’ Afghan Dancing Boys

“Sohne and Rosser created a musical in 2016 about “bacha bazi” or “boy play,” a custom in Afghanistan involving child sexual abuse between older men and young adolescent males or boys—known as dancing boys. The boys are trained to dance seductively in front of older men at parties and are often sexually abused.”

(Debra Heine – American Greatness)  The same songwriting team that wrote an appalling song for the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus mocking parents’ fears that they’re “coming for your children,” were forced to cancel production of a play last year about the “dancing boys” of Afghanistan after it sparked a massive outcry from Afghans who perceived it as romanticizing sexual abuse. Continue reading

New Evidence Indicates Enough Illegal Votes In Georgia To Tip 2020 Results

“Mark Davis, who has testified as an expert witness multiple times in disputed election cases, believes Trump might have won a challenge to the Georgia election results had a court actually heard his case.”

(Margot Cleveland – The Federalist)  New evidence indicates that more than 10,300 illegal votes were cast in Georgia in the November 2020 general election — a number that will continue to rise over the next several months, potentially exceeding the 12,670 votes that separated Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Continue reading

Ed Litton Is Disqualified From The Pastorate, But Is He Even A Christian?

“By mid-day on that day, Reformation Charlotte’s story hit the national radio airwaves as Todd Starnes and Robert Jeffress offered commentary and denounced Litton’s and Greear’s statements. By the end of the day, the news had lit social media on fire and others, including Pastor Gabe Hughes, had tweeted it out.”

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte)  On June 15th, the Southern Baptist Convention elected Harry Edward (Ed) Litton Jr., the lead pastor of Redemption Church in Saraland, Alabama, as the president of the nation’s largest non-Catholic denomination…. Continue reading

Buckle Up, Democrats: The Left’s Demoralizing Attacks on Conservatives May Reap the Whirlwind

Many Trump supporters “don’t know for certain whether ballots were faked in November 2020, but they know for absolute certain that the press, the FBI, etc would lie to them “if” it happened. “They watched the press behave like animals for four years. Tens of millions of people will always see Kavanaugh as a gang rapist, based on nothing, because of CNN. And CNN seems proud of that. They led a lynch mob against a high school kid. They cheered on a summer of riots.”

(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media)  I have firmly and consistently condemned the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot from day one and I find the event extremely disturbing. However, I cannot help but notice that the Left’s response to the Capitol riot, the outrage over Marxist critical race theory in schools, the concerns about election integrity, and many other issues is only likely to exacerbate the tensions that inspired some Trump supporters to act like antifa and launch a violent attack against the very constitutional system they claim to defend. Continue reading

The Mean New Deal

“It’s all pretty depressing and meaningless, pardon the pun. Our media culture is flat-out nasty, blatantly sadistic, and getting worse.”

(Bill O’Reilly)  A few months ago, Disney executives held a secret meeting with members of the ABC News program “The View.” Things had become so hateful on the morning program that some Disney board members were loudly complaining.

The message delivered was “knock off the hate, ladies.”

The rise of a generation of censors: Law schools the latest battlement over free speech

Elie Mystal, who writes for ATL and is The Nation’s justice correspondent…lashed out at “white society” and how he strives to maintain a “whiteness-free” life. On MSNBC, Mystal declared, without any contradiction from the host, that “You don’t communicate to [Trump supporters], you beat them. You do not negotiate with these people, you destroy them.”

(Jonathan Turley – The Hill) Free speech on American college campuses has been in a free fall for years. From high schools through law schools, free speech has gone from being considered a right that defines our society to being dismissed as a threat…. Continue reading

Despite Opposition, Anti-white CRT Indoctrination Continues Spreading Like a Virus

Which brings us to our next CRT Hall of Shame example, Manhattan’s posh Spence School, which caters to New York City society girls. It broke a few weeks ago that Spence had shown a graduation-day video to eighth-grade students that, as parent and Hispanic tech exec Gabriela Baron put it in a scathing letter, “openly derides, humiliates and ridicules white women.”

(Selwyn Duke – The New American)  From the schoolroom to the board room to video on Zoom, Anti-whiteness 101/Divide-and-Conquer Theory (a.k.a. Critical Race Theory) has swept across America like an invading horde. In fact, despite spirited opposition from parents and others coast to coast, it continues spreading due to pseudo-elite embrace.
