2012: My Year in Review (Part 1)

Nothing but hundreds of days, filled non-stop with the grace of Almighty God!!!

The Attempt to Eradicate Christ from Christmas

There is an insanity that pervades our nation. It goes from the top governmental office of president to the lowest governing body. It is the aim of our university system, the NEA and the whole public school system. It is seen in the radical work of environmentalists with their doomsday global warming power-play to enslave […]

Lt. Col: Obama Knew Immediately About Benghazi Attack

A Lt. Col called into the Rush Limbaugh radio show and explained exactly how and why the White House and the President of the United States knew immediately about Benghazi and that the Ambassador was in danger. And yet, those who have been given the power and authority to ‘pull the trigger’ on an immediate […]

Noah Webster: Voting & Preservation of Government

“When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, "just men who will rule in the fear of God." The preservation of government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; if the citizens neglect their […]

Olympics 2012: Michael Phelps & Gabby Douglas

Michael Phelps won his last individual race in the Summer Olympic men’s 100 meter butterfly. This was a pretty amazing race to watch. Phelps, in 7th place more than halfway through the race still manages to win gold. I still find it hard to believe, but, every time I watch it, the guy still wins. […]

Memorial Day: Kneel Where Our Loves Are Sleeping

While some would have you believe that Memorial Day was instituted “to honor Union soldiers who died in the Civil War”, that’s not exactly true. Organized women’s groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War, and layed the groundwork for the later recognized holiday.  A hymn published in 1867, […]

Movie: Act of Valor

Folks, this aint no chick-flick. Navy SEALS portrayed by…. active duty Navy SEALS. The story is fictional, but the weapons and tactics are totally real. As one man puts it, this film is “American exceptionalism on steroids.” Here is the film’s description: “When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of […]

Obama 2012

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America ‘s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. […]

Ahead for 2012

Lord willing, this year will be fruitful for the Lord. Expect a vlog channel on YouTube for one. A lot is being planned. Much is in the works. But you can count on one thing….expect to see my hands on the edge of the boat carrying the status quo passengers. For those of you who […]

Martin Luther King Jr.–Unbeliever?

MLK in his own writings: 1) Denies the deity, sonship, virgin birth and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ 2) Calls the garden of Eden a myth in line with “other oriental religions” and says that science and the Bible are at odds. 3) Did King ever repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Apparently […]
