“What sorts of things might the Democrats have up their sleeve for 2024? If we know one thing about Democrats, it’s that they live to win elections. That’s why they’re starting to freak out about the age and incompetence and awful polling of their 81-year-old standard-bearer.”
(Douglas Andrews – The Patriot Post) The 2020 presidential election was “the most secure in American history.” We know this because the Department of Homeland Security — specifically, the members of the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council Executive Committee and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council — told us so on November 12, 2020, nine days after the election.
So it must be true, right? After all, nine days is plenty of time to conduct a thorough investigation and forensic examination, right? Right? Continue reading
“The Bible calls us to a different standard. It speaks of sound teaching, equipping the saints for ministry, evangelism, and faithful Christian living. The Church’s role is not to conform to the world but to transform it through the power of the gospel.”
(The Dissenter) In a world increasingly seduced by the allure of modernity and comfort, Prestonwood Baptist Church’s [Senior Pastor Dr. Jack Graham] recent multi-million-dollar renovation epitomizes a troubling trend in contemporary Christianity—a shift from substance to spectacle, from doctrine to dazzle. This lavish expenditure on aesthetics and technology, while impressive in scale, raises serious questions about the church’s commitment to the core tenets of the gospel. Continue reading
Hamas relies on useful Western idiots. It understands its terrorists repel the majority of Americans. But it figures Western and globalist institutions—academia, the media, popular culture—in their wealth, ignorance, and self-importance, alleviate guilt and find resonance by mouthing the shibboleths of the “underdog.”
(Victor Davis Hanson – American Greatness) We know the multifaceted strategy of the monstrous Hamas operation of October 7.
In precivilizational fashion it wished to kill and mutilate the most vulnerable of all Israeli civilians and thus to shock the world that it was capable of—and proud about— anything, from decapitation to necrophilia. Such animalistic savagery, in the reckoning of Western therapeutic society, was supposedly to be seen as forced upon Hamas murderers by the “occupation.” Continue reading
(Mary Dowling) According to an October 4 report in Newsweek, “the federal government believes that the threat of violence and major civil disturbance around the 2024 U.S. presidential election is so great that it has quietly created a new category of extremists that it seeks to track and counter: Donald Trump’s army of MAGA followers.”
We’re an army now? Not the millions of single adult men pouring across the border? Continue reading
(The Dissenter) Preston Sprinkle, the host of the podcast “Theology in the Raw,” an odd enough title for a podcast, I must say, recently hosted Dr. Jared Moore, pastor and author of the book, The Lusts of the Flesh. Moore’s book addresses the various false teachings that are pervasive within the Evangelical Church around aberrant sexuality, particularly the notion that one can sublimate their sinful sexual desires and sanctify them, turning them into something holy that can be offered back to God. Continue reading
“This is tricky territory. The invisible and the unknown are realms governed by God alone, and these accounts are those on which the occult, the New Age, and false teachings thrive. There is no clear evidence for any out-of-body state and certainly none for having visited heaven (the books on visiting heaven have anti-Christian theology, conflict with God’s word, and/or present inconsistent accounts)”
(Marcia Montenegro – Midwest Christian Outreach) One of our readers recently sent me a link to the newly released film from Angel Studios titled “After Death.” This is a film featuring those who claim to have had near-death experiences and gone to heaven or hell and, of course, returned (or we would not have heard these stories). One trailer is at After Death. The film is one of the most recent promotions of what might be called the Heavenly Tourism Industry. Continue reading
“So when the group “Progressive Maryland” says that we are “operating on stolen land” and voluntarily paying “a monthly land tax to the Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians,” they are laying the groundwork for what is to come – reparations from the citizens of the state of Maryland, to be copied on a national basis.”
(Cliff Kincaid – News With Views) Conservatives regard Thanksgiving as a Pilgrim achievement but the Marxists in our midst see it differently. To them, Thanksgiving is a stain, a stigma, an opportunity for Marxist exploitation of racial differences to advance a communist revolution. Continue reading
“Leftists do not play by the rules of balanced discourse. Instead, they wield their power to suppress any ideology that contradicts their narrative, especially those rooted in Christianity or conservative values. This overreach is more than just a threat to individuals like David Bloch; it’s a threat to the very fabric of our society, undermining the foundational freedoms upon which our nation was built.”
(The Dissenter) In the case of David Bloch, a snowboarding coach at Woodstock Union High School in Vermont, we see a textbook example of discrimination fueled by today’s cultural and political biases. Bloch, who not only founded the school’s snowboarding team but also spearheaded its success since 2011, was unceremoniously fired. The trigger for this unjust dismissal? A mere casual conversation with two students, during which Bloch stated the obvious: that there are inherent biological differences between males and females, particularly in the realm of sports. Continue reading
“The f-word is now as common as “please,” bad grammar is a badge of honor, tattoos swallow up skin, and even the indigenous people of New Guinea are appalled by all the piercings.”
(Bill O’Reilly) Things are changing fast in America, and some of the new looks are simply bizarre. If you watch the NFL halftime programs, you see guys in thousand-dollar suits wearing ugly sneakers. Why? It’s not suitable, so to speak. They look foolish. Get shoes. That’s not hard. But don’t wear brown shoes with dark suits!
Why do I have to explain this? Continue reading
“Consumers’ perceptions of our position on matters of public interest, including our efforts to achieve certain of our environmental and social goals, often differ widely and present risks to our reputation and brands.”
(Spencer Brown – Townhall) In an unsurprising development for sane Americans, another major company is admitting that woke ESG — environmental, social and governance — policies are bad for its bottom line. As it turns out, going woke does in fact correlate with going broke, and this time, it’s Disney making the uncomfortable realization that putting virtue signaling to intolerant leftists ahead of turning a profit was a mistake. Continue reading
“While the early Church was indeed characterized by the extraordinary offices of apostles and prophets, the New Testament does not teach their continuation after the apostolic age. Instead, it warns vehemently against false prophets and emphasizes the need for doctrinal vigilance.”
(The Dissenter) In today’s Christian landscape, an intriguing trend is unfolding: a surge of people claiming the titles of “Prophet” or “Apostle.” With an air of spiritual authority, they assert themselves as contemporary mouthpieces of God, equipped with new revelations and divine insights. However, a thorough examination of the New Testament reveals a different narrative, one that does not endorse an ongoing office of prophets or apostles but rather focuses on cautioning against false prophets. Continue reading
“Getting vaccinated is still really the most important way you can protect yourself and your family,” Cohen claimed, despite how people who have been vaccinated can still get the virus.
(Rebecca Downs – Townhall) It was over three-and-a-half years ago that the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 to be a global pandemic. It’s since pretty much become endemic. Back in May, the WHO declared it was no longer such an emergency. And yet the Biden administration’s Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is still trying to lecture Americans on keeping safe for Thanksgiving, through CDC Director Mandy Cohen, MD. Continue reading
“Kinsey, a biologist who had conducted specialized research on gall wasps, was one of the most important figures driving a new and radical vision of human sex and sexuality in the 20th century. He arrived in Bloomington as a biologist, but his dark legacy has virtually nothing to do with gall wasps and everything to do with the fact that he was a deeply tormented man given to multiple forms of sexual deviancy whose ambition was to destroy traditional sexual morality and to liberate humanity into a new sexual age.”
(R. Albert Mohler JR – World) If you are looking for Ground Zero in the sexual revolution, you might not think of America’s heartland, but you should. You should think of Indiana University and The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. Founded more than 75 years ago as the Institute for Sex Research, it was from the start a primary platform for the sexual revolution and the twisted vision of its founder, Alfred Kinsey. Continue reading
“You’ve got two people running for president — one of them is literally senile,” Carlson said before noting that he doesn’t actually believe Biden is in charge of anything, “yet he’s standing for reelection at the age of 80.”
(Matt Margolis – PJ Media) The 2016 presidential election was particularly bad, as the Hillary campaign colluded with the Obama administration to frame Trump with colluding with Russia to steal the election. Four years later, Democrats exploited the COVID pandemic to unilaterally change election laws for nefarious purposes. Continue reading
(David Ng) Former NSA and CIA chief Michael Hayden, who has fashioned a post-government career attacking and censoring conservatives, is spending his Thanksgiving week smearing patriotic American Christians who own firearms, claiming they are “no different” from Hamas terrorists.
On Wednesday, Michael Hayden responded to a post on X that juxtaposed two photos: one of a woman holding an American flag, Bible, and handgun; the other of Palestinian terrorist Reem Riyashi, who killed herself along with four Israelis in a 2004 suicide bombing that was claimed by Hamas and the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. Continue reading
In 2020, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich objected when the state of Pennsylvania adopted new election rules during the COVID pandemic that, in his view, invited cheating. He tweeted, “Pennsylvania democrats are methodically changing the rules so they can steal the election.”
(Betsy McCaughey – The Patriot Post) You can see it with your own eyes. But Democrats and their left-wing media allies call it a “fantasy.” What is it?
A Lawrence, Massachusetts voter who had been turned away from the polls on Election Day and told he had already voted found out he was the victim of fraud. He checked the footage on the video camera outside his front door and saw that a woman had removed mail-in ballots from his mailbox. He called police. Continue reading
(Protestia) When arch-heretic Kenneth Copeland is not giving false prophecies about COVID being destroyed, throwing someone in a wheelchair to the floor, casting away bald spots in Jesus name, or even running his own bizzaro Bible college, the world’s richest prosperity preacher in America can be frequently found making up stuff about Jesus and justifying his personal theological idiosyncrasies in order to increase his net worth, this time with a viral video going around showing him drinking his own blood in some bizarre communion rite. Continue reading
“One revelation in the film that is astonishing is that the restraint he used, holding Floyd down with his knee was an accepted practice the police were trained in. Everyone lied about that.”
(Mary Dowling) The film, The Fall of Minneapolis shows footage that was kept from the public for nearly 2 1/2 months. [Watch the full movie at the end] It’s something that never happened before in a major case. In the body camera footage, you clearly hear and see George Floyd talking about how we can’t breathe long before Derek Chauvin arrives on the scene. Continue reading
“Since when did such student guests in the United States feel empowered to shut down bridges during commute hours, tear down American flags on Veterans Day, and scout out and hunt-down Jewish-Americans on campus?”
(Victor Davis Hanson – American Greatness) It took the widely reported, repellent, and exempt wave of anti-Semitism and violent pro-Hamas protestors harassing Jews, finally to convince Americans that their own hallmark universities are illiberal centers of mediocrity and intolerance—and increasingly unsafe. Continue reading
(Katherine Hamilton – Breitbart) Harvard Medical School students are allowed to participate in transgender procedures in a course available in the fall of 2023 and spring of 2024, The College Fix reported.
The four-week elective course is called “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.” The course description states that the “heavy-case load” [sic] at BIDMC (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center) gives students the “opportunity to participate in procedures that span the entire specialty including hand surgery, breast reconstruction, microsurgery, craniofacial surgery, lymphatic surgery, orthoplastic surgery, gender affirming surgery, and cosmetic surgery.” [emphasis added] Continue reading
16 All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be equipped, having been thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (LSB)
I receive numerous comments on the posts on this blog that never see the light of day because those who post them either do not bother to follow the rules clearly posted, which are assiduously enforced, or they have failed to read them. Their error is that they attack what is posted here from Sacred Scripture as truth, in context, clearly exposited and exegeted with innuendo, human philosophy, but never, I repeat, never do they go to God’s Word and make any attempt to show me where I have erred in my exegesis of the text….

“Every one of us ought to read the woes against the pharisees and tremble as we recognize that the judgment pronounced on them we also ought to face.”
(Josh Rieger) The Great Sequoias are one of the most majestic things on earth. They grow to enormous sizes. They live for millennia. But as amazing as they are, they require fire to reproduce. Apart from forest fires their cones won’t open and release the seedlings, the ground won’t be clear from underbrush and leaves for the seeds to germinate in the soil, and light and water will not be able to reach the forest floor to give them the proper conditions to grow. Continue reading
The two execrable Republicans who were integral to the charade — “Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney — are no longer members of Congress, but they’re still skittish about being found out. Sen. Mike Lee from Utah is interested in officially exploring the committee’s selective editing…”
(Stephen Kruiser – PJ Media) Well, they’re back in the news, and they’re as irritating as ever.
The House Soviet Select Committee on Daddy Issues, also known as the J6 Committee, has come under some long-overdue scrutiny, courtesy of Speaker of the House Mike Johnson…. Continue reading
(Protestia) In late June of this year, residents of Murfreesboro in Tennessee passed an ordinance that critics say banned all public displays of homosexuality. At the time city officials were particularly concerned about banning Pride parades after last year’s festivities saw marchers in various stages of undress, and a “family-friendly” drag show saw the performer twerking and acting out sexually in front of children- something LGBTQ love seeing, but normal folks despise.
The city of 157,000 banned “indecent behavior” and “that (which) may be judged as … harmful to minors,” which includes “indecent exposure, public indecency, lewd behavior, nudity or sexual conduct.”… Continue reading
