(Ben Zeisloft – Daily Wire) Inflation soared to new four-decade highs last month — but some products are driving the price increases more than others.
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 8.6% between May 2021 and May 2022, a Friday report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed. Even though wages are nominally rising, real average hourly wages dropped 3% during the same period — meaning Americans must tighten their budgets or work more than last year to enjoy the same standard of living.

“We have a rule of law in this country, and you don’t get to just have a mob descend on the Supreme Court justice’s house or try to impede the operations of government because there may be a decision you don’t like.”

“God of queer, transgressive spaces: Lavish manger, empty tomb;
wine-dark loaves and precious graces bend our barren lives to bloom.”

After spending years trying to figure out what sport I was best at, there came a point at which I finally realized that I just wasn’t cut out for sports. I wasn’t overly athletic and I didn’t really fit in with the “jock” lifestyle. It just wasn’t me…. Continue reading →
(David Morrill – Protestia) Pastor Tom Buck released a statement in response to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary exonerating themselves for the leak of Jennifer Buck’s rough draft and subsequent attempt to blackmail Buck into silence. The statement was released on Buck’s behalf by journalist Janet Mefferd, and offered corrections that included the following:
Contrary to SEBTS’s claim, they did not conduct a “careful investigation,” and SEBTS President Danny Akin told Tom Buck he was going back on his agreement to allow a third-party investigation.
“It’s no accident that only 0.5% of adults over the age of 25 identify as trans — ten times less than the percentage of kids. There is so much more pressure on kids to “conform” by being different. “Coming out” as gay or bi in many teen social groups makes a kid a celebrity.”
(Rick Moran – PJ Media) According to two CDC health surveys of young adults from 2017 to 2020, about 5% of youths aged 17-24 believe they are transgender or “non-binary.” Continue reading →
(Protestia) How convenient. In a STATEMENTS FROM SOUTHEASTERN ON MATTERS SURROUNDING THE BUCK ESSAY, Danny Akin has shared with the world that his seminary has “concluded a careful investigation into the involvement of any SEBTS faculty and staff (Karen Swallow Prior and Ken Whitfield), in the sharing of an essay written by Jennifer Buck, and with the intention of blackmailing her husband, Tom Buck” and that they surmised that “nothing was discovered to indicate that any staff at SEBTS were involved in the sharing of the essay or in any attempt to blackmail Dr. Buck.” Continue reading →

“In the name of Allah-the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. All praises due to Allah, the Lord of the Universe, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. The Honour of the Day of Judgement, you alone we do worship….”
(Protestia) Founded by conservative Lutherans in 1869 as Augsburg Seminary, the school is the walking emblem of the depths of downgrade an institution can descend into. Once known as a faithful institution, they changed it to Augsburg College and Theological Seminary in 1942, Augsburg College in 1963, and Augsburg University in 2017, walking in lockstep with the ELCA as it too transforms into a thoroughly pagan entity.

“The trial should have been of the FBI and Clinton apparatchiks in the FBI and DOJ for trying to overturn a presidency. No one believes the FBI didn’t know the truth. Sussmann should have gone on trial for conspiracy if anything, not for lying to people who knew what he was up to unless they are stupid, which we doubt.” — Mary Dowling, Independent Sentinel
(Spencer Brown – Townhall) A Washington, D.C., jury found Michael Sussmann not guilty on Tuesday morning of lying to the FBI in 2016 about working on behalf of Hillary Clinton when he presented debunked information that he claimed showed a connection between Donald Trump and Russia — a report made to the FBI that would set off years of Russian collusion hoax-fury that ultimately was found to be nothing by Robert Mueller’s independent investigation.

“The Biden administration is expanding this to include demanding K – 12 schools do away with the separation of gender bathrooms. That is to say: any place that accepts federal money for the sake of food must go as far as enacting transgender-friendly policies within the workplace.
(Nick Monroe – The Post Millennial) The Biden administration through the USDA is set to enforce transgender-friendly bathroom policies through a scheme that ties funding for federal aid programs for student food via compliance of “equity” friendly systems. Continue reading →

(Matt Margolis – PJ Media) It’s impossible to say that I’m shocked by the latest bombshell courtesy of the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ).
According to a memo obtained by ACLJ via a FOIA lawsuit, several Obama administration officials held secret meetings with Iran during Trump’s presidency.
