A Post-Mortem for Mainstream Media Journalism, Part 2: “The Walking Dead” [Video]

MSM, Leftmedia

The television series “The Walking Dead” has been running for 10 seasons on AMC, and was recently renewed for an 11th season to begin in 2020. The series was set in a dystopian future where zombies, known exclusively as “walkers” in the show, threaten the mindless destruction all of human civilization. These “walkers” are almost totally brain-dead and yet survive with one instinctive drive remaining within them, the drive to eat those who have not become zombies. Since this defective instinct is all that remains in each “walker”, they are not able to understand that should they prevail, they will ultimately die of starvation.
Part one of this series examined the deterioration and demise of mainstream journalism in America and the west as a whole. One reasonable challenge to that premise is this: If MSM journalism is dead, why are there so many large Leftmedia organizations still operating?

Remembering Pearl Harbor and Raising The “Greatest Generation” [Video]

Pearl Harbor, Greatest Generation, Great Depression

December 7, 2019, was the 78th anniversary of the attack by Imperial Japan on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. In 1941, it was a typical early Sunday morning an entire lifetime ago. Families were getting ready to head to worship services all over the Hawaiian islands. Others were enjoying the blessing of another day of beautiful weather in Hawaii. That included the Naval personnel not on duty at […]

The First Promise of Advent

Christmas, Advent

The four Sundays prior to Christmas are traditionally known as “Advent,” within most Christian churches. It is a time of both anticipation and preparation for the celebration of Christ’s birth into our world more than two millennia ago. December 1, 2019, is the first Sunday of Advent on the “church” calendar. Many churches feature special events prior to or even as a part of congregational worship gatherings. These usually include the introduction of Christmas “hymns” or special music selections familiar to most of the people who will attend.

A Perpetual Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day, prayer

Thanksgiving as a holiday is a day traditionally set aside in America to reflect upon and “give thanks” for the multitude of blessings we enjoy as Americans. Most businesses are closed, at least for the morning and afternoon hours, before plunging us all into the mayhem of the Yuletide season. For most, a large part of such reflection involves family, feasting, and football. For many, that often means enjoying our abundance of these items as a prelude to the Christmas holiday. However, Thanksgiving can suffer from a familiar ailment of such days of celebration. It is the ailment of the holiday aftermath.

A Post-Mortem for Mainstream Media Journalism [Video]

Leftist journalism, mainstream media

Watching the performance “journalism” of the supposed ‘Mainstream’ media during Trump’s presidency often evokes reactions from laughter to rage among supporters of the President. However, this is a significant moment in the history of journalism itself, for we are witnessing the death knell of the MSM, and are on the precipice of an entirely new era of media journalism which is rising to fill the void.

The Evil Insanity of Gender Identity, Part Three: Legitimizing Lunacy and Dissolving Sexuality

Gender Identity, LGBT, Transgenderism

As this aberrant movement has grown in influence in society, the push to legitimize ‘trans-rights’ has rapidly moved beyond cultural acceptance and now reaches to acquire the federal status of law. As noted in this journal, the first stage of the process is already finished with the passage of HR-5 in the U.S. House of Representatives. 
The bill was sent on to the Senate in May of this year, where it now sits in the Judiciary Committee and no further action has been taken. No hearings or debates or votes have yet taken place.

The Evil Insanity of Gender Identity, Part Two: Societal Madness [Video]

LGBT, Transgenderism

The first part of this series examined the horrible sacrifice of very young children and their futures that are a tragic consequence of the newly ascendant ‘trans-rights’ movement as a so-called civil rights cause. There are other, widely-spread societal consequences which threaten to remake western culture wholesale and send us careening toward oblivion. There are three primary areas of concern within our society that are negatively affected by ‘trans-rights’ advocates in our time. These areas are all forms of the Leftmedia, the world of competitive sports, and the monolith of both primary and secondary public education.

How the World Changed 30 Years Ago [Video]

  Saturday, November 9, 2019, was the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the day the world changed forever in a way unimaginable for the seven decades preceding that historic event. It was also the first world-changing event I was aware of as an adult and the most significant until 9/11 in my lifetime. Therefore, it is prudent that time is remembered and the events reviewed […]

The Evil Insanity of Gender Identity, Part One: Transgenderism and Child Sacrifice [Video]

Transgenderism, Gender I.D.

The recent case of one James Younger has once again brought critical attention to the so-called ‘transgender rights’ movement madness which has gripped society with astonishing speed. Perhaps some of you haven’t heard about James, a 7-year-old boy embroiled existentially against his will in a divorce settlement with some very unusual details. This case takes place in Dallas, Texas with James’ biological father, Jeffrey Younger who is trying to keep his soon-to-be ex-wife from forcing young James to “transition” to becoming a “girl.” In a Dallas family court, it was ruled by a jury on October 21, 2019, that sole custody of James should go to the wife, Dr. Anne Georgulas, which would make her the sole authority over medical decisions for her son.

The Left’s Illegal, Immoral, and Idiotic Pseudo-Impeachment [Video]

Impeach Trump

In the past few weeks, the world has witnessed a series of historically unique political events courtesy of the Leftists occupying the United States Congress. All of these events are honed in on their last-ditch, desperation shot to stop the juggernaut that is President Donald J. Trump. It is evident that the Left realizes the truth of the situation heading into a presidential election year in 2020. Each day Trump succeeds in any area, whether a speech electrifying mammoth crowds or his foreign policy victories, hammers home the understanding within the progressive psyche that no Democrat can defeat the President in this election.

A Case Against Tax-exemption for Churches

IRS, churches

Recently the increasingly desperate Democratic presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke lashed out at Christian churches and some other non-profit organizations who oppose same-sex ‘marriage.’ While appearing on CNN’s ‘town hall’ about LBGTQ+ ‘rights,’ on October 10, 2019, …His statements have received significant pushback and O’Rouke will ultimately regret his response, if he isn’t doing so already. The majority of his critics have honed in on this as an attack against religious freedom. I do not believe this is properly characterized as a threat to religious liberty.

It’s Halloween Season and HRC Is Back from the Dead [Video]

Hillary

The recent ‘impeachment inquiry’ farce has revealed the corruption of the Leftist Democrat machine to a greater degree than perhaps ever before. Moreover, in recent weeks it has also once again brought forth the darkness the Democrats matron of evil to haunt us as we head into the 2020 election year.
It is fitting that in October of 2019, the political horror of 2016, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been revived from near-death. Many doubted she would ever recover from her embarrassing thrashing at the hands of that despicable Donald Trump and his “deplorables.”

“Pro-Choice” Depravity Reaches New Depths of Evil

Planned Parenthood, Pro-choice

This author has been ardently pro-life for about 40 years or so. Along the way, I have participated in some protests by marching with thousands and in others by praying alone in front of Planned Parenthood clinics, as well as helping establish Crisis Pregnancy Care centers in two communities. During this time, I have also followed the antics and proposals of the “pro-choice” crowd closely and written much about the evil nature of the “pro-choice” philosophy. Earlier this year the vile doctrine of the Left plumbed the depths of evil to the very bottom by politicians in New York and Virginia promoting killing the baby up to, and even beyond, leaving the womb. 
Or so I thought. I should have known better. I actually underestimated how grotesque  “pro-choice” actions can, and have become.

Forgetting to “Never Forget” 9/11 [Video]

9/11, Islamic terrorism

Those who were of the age of perhaps 8 or 9 and up could probably remember and recite where they were on the Tuesday morning of September 11, 2001, when the first plane crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York. I was considerably older at that time and I precisely recall where I was when I heard the news.
I was in my office at the First Baptist Church when I heard the unbelievable over the radio. I rushed home and spent the rest of the day in front of the television watching the horrible scenes unfold.

Christianity and The Siren Song of Socialism [Video]

Lately, there have appeared some statements by certain church pastors extolling the ‘virtues’ of Socialism and claiming its endorsement in the Bible. Nor are they the only class of religious leaders who have been publicly and strongly advocating the Socialist way. Though this phenomenon has been very visible recently, it is hardly a new thing. Various portions of Christian church bodies have been enamored with and even actively practiced forms of Socialism in America more than 150 years ago.

The Deliberately Fraudulent History of “The 1619 Project” [Video]

1619 Project

It is called “The 1619 Project,” and it is a deliberate attempt to revise American history and portray America as founded upon slavery itself. It is a series of articles, a photo essay, and poems presented in the New York Times Magazine that total 100 pages. This ambitious effort carries its title because 1619 is the year when the first slaves were sold at the Jamestown colony in what would become America. This publication happens to be both 400 years later and just in time to begin maligning the nation prior to the 2020 elections.

The Integrity of The Constitution Is Non-Negotiable [Video]

Last year following the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida I wrote an article about the Consitution being non-negotiable for America. The reactions from the Left to the recent shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio have prompted a more complete analysis of that subject. The last article in this journal focused more on the President’s words in the wake of those horrible events. The focus shifts here to a larger […]

The Penultimate Power-grab of The ‘New Left’ [Video]

Leftists

The Left has always been a movement which sought power to obtain their warped view of the ‘greater good.’ Moreover, that view has always trended toward Socialism in one variety or another. Leftists search for power is through both cultural and political avenues. For the better portion of the last 60 years, the Left has used the public education system at all levels toward gaining influence and control in both.

Why We Must Not ‘Move on’ from Mueller [Video]

Mueller testimony

On Wednesday, July 24, 2019, former Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave testimony before the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee concerning the ‘Mueller Report’ which could not nail President Trump on any charges of or related to collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential campaign. Mueller’s team of lawyers, dedicated Democrats, and Trump haters all, spent over two years investigating almost anyone remotely associated with the President. As everybody in the world now knows, this team of ‘professionals’ could not find any evidence against President Trump of, well anything, which was clear when Mueller held his rather bizarre press conference on May 29, 2019.

The Moon Landing and the American Flag, 50 Years Later [Video]

July 20, 2019, is the 50th anniversary of first time any human being set foot on the moon. Neil Armstrong was the first to tread on the moon’s surface and he and co-pilot ‘Buzz’ Aldrin’s initial act was to plant the American flag into the moon’s soil, stand at attention and salute it.  
Americans who were alive at the time look back at that moment with nostalgic pride in our nation and how we rose to the challenge of President John F. Kennedy in 1961.

Epstein, the Left and Sexual Abuse of Children [Video]

Epstein

There is one advantage to the Leftist displays of lunacy in recent years. It is revealing to more people than ever how insane the Left actually is. However, there is also a decided disadvantage in acquiring this knowledge. It is when one discovers just how depraved Leftist insanity has now become.
Such knowledge stirs emotions ranging from disgust to anger, especially when it concerns those who are helpless among us. We learned this anew when the newest charges against wealthy Leftist Jeffery Epstein were revealed recently. This convicted pedophile is now facing further charges and perhaps some real hard time, not the 13 months of light-duty he received before. In fact, most commentators expect that Epstein could take several high-profile Democratic stars down with him, most of all former President Bill Clinton.

The Siege Against Christianity, Part 3: 5 Threats from Within [Video]

Christianity

Parts 1 and 2 of this series covered the determined siege against Christianity by forces outside of the Christian fellowship. This final piece will examine the greatest peril to Christianity if all, the threat from within. For the purposes of this article, a threat from within is something or someone whose presence and/or purposes are detrimental to the existence and mission of Christianity. The biblical witness is the measuring standard to find and guard against these kinds of dangers.

There Is No America Without Christ [Video]

4th of July

Thursday, July 4th is America’s annual Independence Day celebration. It is the official yearly commemoration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, proclaiming to Britain that America was no longer under their sway. The historical basics are fairly well known. We know that the principal author of the Declaration was Thomas Jefferson, and part of the introduction, or preamble, is very well known.

Why We ‘Object’ to the Left [Video]

Leftist agenda

  I begin with a note of full disclosure that I am an unabashed fan of almost all things Star Trek. In fact, I have been a fan since I viewed the original series when it ran the first time. My favorite character from that series has remained my favorite Star Trek character of all; ‘Mr. Spock,’ masterfully portrayed by the late Leonard Nimoy. I was enthralled as a youth […]

The Inevitable Tyrannical Inequality of The Equality Act [Video][Update]

The Equality Act

HR-5 is the designation given to “The Equality Act,” which was passed on May 17, 2019, in the House. It now heads to the U.S. Senate where the prospects of passage are somewhat bleak. However, this should not be taken as either the final word by the government nor as a solid victory if the legislation does not pass. HR-5 is a harmful expansion of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes of people.
This effort is extremely dangerous and potentially deadly for the innocent victims of ‘trans-fraud’, the helpless children. Children whose lives will be needlessly traumatized and for almost half of them will result in death by their own hands.

The “Overlord” Factor: 75 Years Later [Video]

D-Day

Thursday, June 6, 2019, marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the invasion of Europe by the Allied forces in World War II. That monumental battle, code-named “Operation Overlord,” was the definitive turning point which led to the total defeat of Hitler’s Third Reich less than one year later. The invasion was the result of many months of meticulous planning combined with fortuitous events both in the battlefield arena and the political atmospheres of both the Allies and the Axis powers. The victory at the beaches of Normandy was also the result of incredible valor by the warriors who fought against the heinous enemy, thousands of whom gave their lives and are today memorialized on those very beaches.

Mueller Confirms His Anti-Trump Bias With His Own Mouth and More [Video]

Mueller and Impeachment

Special Counsel Robert Mueller made a short public statement on May 29, 2019, which confirmed the Leftist bias of the Russia ‘investigation’ and of his report. Moreover, he banished all doubt of his personal bias against the President of the United States and passed the baton to Congress to complete the attempt to destroy him.
The most remarkable part of this was that Mueller did all of that with one sentence.

Honoring The Fallen, and Mourning Our Loss

Memorial Day

It is Memorial Day in America. This is the time we have chosen to honor those who fell in defense of our liberty and to mourn our losses as a people. Most of the nation will be celebrating the holiday in one fashion or another, especially since most will also have an extra day off from work on Memorial Day itself. A large portion will hold get-togethers with family and […]

A Behavioral Experiment: Predicting the Pro-Abortion Left’s Response to Alabama and Company [Video]

Leftist, Pro-abortion

There has been a number of states who recently passed measures to severely limit and outlaw abortion. These pro-life laws have brought down the wrath of the Leftists who favor abortion at all times and for any reason. 
The most controversial of these so far is the new Alabama ‘Heartbeat’ law criminalizing abortion once a heartbeat is detected. With this and other such activities in mind, I wanted to conduct an experiment concerning Leftist’s mindsets on abortion.

The Mueller Collusion Circus Theatre of the Absurd [Video]

Collusion Obstruction

How is the Left handling the revelation that President Trump did not collude with the Russians, or anyone else, to ‘fix’ the 2016 election? They are handling it with all the immaturity and obtuse deflection of a toddler, which is what has come to be expected these days.
The Mueller Collusion Circus headlines the political ‘theatre of the absurd,’ in 2019. It is a classic comedy of errors, which is to say it is a tragedy, in two acts.

The Left and Islamofascism, A Strange and Troubling Alliance: Part Four, Origins and Opponents [Video]

Leftism, Islamofascism

The first three parts of this critical series chronicled the alliance of the modern Leftist movements with Islamofascism in illegal immigration, politics, culture, and religion worldwide. This final part provides the answer to an unspoken question lurking in the background, “How did these seemingly disparate groups unite at all?”

The answer is found by examining the historical origins of both Islam and the Left. Within those origins will be discovered the most important factor that both groups hold in common and is an ancient and persistent enemy of both ideologies.

The Left and Islamofascism: A Strange and Troubling Alliance, Part Three

Islamofascism

The second part of this series began the examination of the modern alliance between the Leftist ‘Christian’ church and Islamofascism by the embracing of both massive Muslim migration globally and of a rising anti-Semitism within the Leftist flock. These churches have relied on a faulty theology which dismisses or reinterprets biblical instruction to fit a “social justice” agenda. This agenda works through a philosophy of ecumenism.

The Left and Islamofascism: A Strange and Troubling Alliance, Part Two [Video]

Islamofascism

Here we will focus on the most troubling part of this alliance, the entanglement of the Left-leaning ‘Christian’ churches around the world with the Islamic movement. This portion of the unofficial alliance involves churches on both sides of the Reformation divide. The Catholic Church has its portion within this alliance from the Pope on down the hierarchy of the church.

Most of the Protestant churches involved are in cooperation with or are members of the World Council of Churches. In both cases, it is the Leftist application of the so-called “social justice gospel,” that is employed to form and continue this unholy alliance.

The Left and Islamofascism: A Strange and Troubling Alliance, Part One [Video]

Leftism

Much has been written here and elsewhere about the many detrimental elements that the 2019 crop of Democratic congressional rookies have brought to American society. However, there is at least one somewhat positive service these neophytes have done for the public, they have visibly revealed the mind of the activist Left. One of the more troubling revelations that have come to light is the political and societal alliance between the far Left and Islamofascists in the United States. No, there isn’t a formal written agreement between the two groups, nor could there be one that truly states the intentions of either party, as will be seen.

The Vital Truth of Resurrection Day

Easter

Happy Resurrection Day! Of course, it is more popularly known as ‘Easter,’ but I believe the name ‘Resurrection Day’ is more fitting to the biblical record.
Sunday, April 21, is the date in 2019 that Christians recognize and recall the truth of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead some two millennia ago. However, also each year at this time skeptics rear their critical heads to attempt discrediting this event. Sadly, many of those same critics claim the mantle of teachers within Christianity.

A Good Friday ‘Cross’ Application

Good Friday

Friday, April 19, 2019, is the annual remembrance of the LORD Jesus Christ’s death on a cruel Roman cross that paid the price for our sin. The crucifixion of Christ was the turning point of all history where God the Father reached out to humanity with the priceless gift of His only Son, Jesus.

Through that sacrifice, we are given the opportunity to come to God and receive His grace and the gift of everlasting life. Yet, the cross is more than the greatest sacrifice; it is a primary example for those who love Christ.

The Most Dangerous Person in Congress [Video]

Rep. Ilhan Omar

There have been some very unusual happenings in the U.S. Congress since the 2018 midterm elections due to the influx of a few newcomers to political office. On the GOP side, new Representative Dan Crenshaw [R-TX] has injected an unusual amount of conservative common sense on Capitol Hill. On the Democratic side, let’s just say that common sense is not their forte. The incoherent babblings of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez [D-NY] […]

America Is Out of Options: It Is Time to Close the Border [Video]

Close the Border

In January of 2019, the Democrat Left in Congress and the Leftmedia were mocking President Trump (and his supporters) for claiming there was a real “crisis” on the southern border and declaring a National Emergency as a result. However, soon after Trump’s declaration even the Leftmedia has begun to admit a true crisis exists. 

That’s because the figures for 2019, most notably for March, were simply undeniable. Though there are no official numbers for the month, however, the daily and weekly reports assure us that well over 100,000 apprehensions at the border will be the result.

The Conservative ‘Long Game’ in The Culture War [Video]

Leftism

The importance of battling the Left in the short run, or ‘short game’ is akin to holding the line against a multitude of attacks on multiple fronts in the culture war. It cannot be overstated that conservatives must protect Western society against the imminent dangers of a Leftist takeover.

However, it is perhaps even more vital that conservatives work out a strategy to successfully engage in the ‘long game’ of cultural change. Otherwise, the ‘short game’ victories will be short-lived and the overall war will tilt even more toward a Leftist defeat and a disaster for liberty around the world.

March Madness Is Upon Us, Thank Goodness!

NCAA March Madness 2019

The 2019 edition of what is my personal favorite sports event is upon us! The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is the most enjoyable of team sports playoffs to watch, in my considered opinion. I must admit bias here. Basketball was the only team sport I played on an organized level and was my first love as a youth. I became far more serious and competed on the professional level in […]

Transgender Tyranny Is Here

Transgenderism

This journal has chronicled the devastating and dangerous movement to enshrine “transgenderism” as a basic human right on several occasions. In the past few years, advocates of this reality-denying cult have begun to quietly manipulate the legal system to their ends, especially concerning what can only be called forced transitioning of young children.
