[Isaiah 5:20 ESV] President Donald Trump addressed the United Nations for the first time on September 20, 2017. It has been noted that the first impression one makes is the most important.

President Trump’s speech to the United Nations on September 19, 2017, has caused a bit of an uproar. Those on the left are upset that Trump basically called out the U.N. for its support of socialist states like Venezuela, among other items. His statement that Venezuela was in dire straights because “socialism was faithfully implemented” was met with long seconds of shocked and indignant silence. Yet Trump did all of this with […]
President Trump gave his first address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. From all accounts, it was a bold and forceful speech. He challenged the ambassadors and other leaders present to stand strong against the twin threats of North Korea and Iran. It has been noted that “the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.” I offer the following as an assessment of the […]

The Oregon Ducks survived a second-half comeback attempt to beat the Nebraska Cornhuskers 42-35, Saturday, September 9, 2017 in Eugene, Oregon. The Ducks are playing under new head coach Willie Taggart this year. However, the offense looks much the same as in the past, especially the no-huddle look. Oregon used that scheme most of the game and it worked well in the first half. However, this game was a tale of […]
The 2017 NFL season began with the Kansas City Chiefs upsetting the New England Patriots, 42-27, in the kickoff game on Thursday, September 7, 2017 at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. The Patriots took the opening kickoff and drove for a touchdown in nine plays covering 73 yards. It was a textbook drive and the Chiefs defense appeared off-balance against Brady and the Patriots. It looked like the Patriots were […]
