A Challenge to U.S. Military Supporters

Challenge: Name one, single freedom that the US Military is defending on behalf of the American people. You can’t say “all of them” – that’s not a specific freedom. Just name one, then tell me how they are doing it. Good luck with that. If you can not name one, at least one, specific freedom […]

A Challenge to Military Supporters

I’ve had enough folks. This may – may – be my last comment on the subject. First, know this: I support everyone who is serving, or has served,  in the military. I do not hate, nor am I against, those who serve in the military of the United States. I recognize your decision to serve […]

Lone Survivor: A Film of Counterfeit Patriotism and Ungodly Aggression

CNN host Jake Tapper’s interview with the subject of the Mark Wahlberg film Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell, became tense on Friday when the veteran of Operation Red Wings apparently took offense at Tapper’s suggestion that the botched mission was a mistake. Luttrell defended his fellow veterans who lost their lives in that operation and asked […]

Why Serving in the Military Does Not Make You A ‘Hero’

[Before you read any further, please understand, I am not against serving in the military at all!] Over the holidays I had brief discussions with some who served in the military for a number of years and are now collecting their pensions and benefits for their service. During every discussion, politics came up, as did […]

Mogadishu: Remembering Black Hawk Down

Today is the 20th anniversary of an intensely fought battle in Somalia. But this is not just a story of war, survival and death. It is also a story of trusting God, faith and a realization of the importance of eternity, as told by one of the Rangers who led the charge in battle. The […]

Pentagon to Christians in Military: Share the Gospel, Get Court-Martialed

The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: “Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense…Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis…”. The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian […]

Why I Will Not Honor the Military

America’s greatest enemy is Washington, D.C. That is reason enough to bring soldiers home  from foreign lands to honor the oath they swore before God Almighty to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC. But they are not doing that. Not one of them is doing that. There is not a veteran of […]

We Were Warned…and We Did Not Listen

On January 17, 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his final farewell address. In that address, he warned American’s of something new in our country, something that did not exist previously – an armaments industry. In his speech, he warned us of what would happen if the military industrial complex was allowed to grow unchecked. […]

An Open Letter to U.S. Military Troops: “You’re Not Defending Our Freedoms”

Jacob G. Hornberger, President of Future of Freedom Foundation has written a poignant, open letter to the troops of the U.S. military. He makes a strong case (in my opinion) that we, America, are responsible for the TSA fondling at the airports, the 10-year-old Patriot Act, the illegal spying on Americans, the indefinite detention, etc., […]

Judge: Evidential Records Could Be An ‘Embarrassment’ To Barack Obama

Ever wonder what Obama did on his first day in office? 1). Promise transparency of the Government in hopes of restoring the trust of the of the American people. 2) On the same first day in office, gave an executive order to seal all presidential records. You can read the original WND article on the […]

Is It “Inappropriate” To Speak The Truth About Islam?

by John Eidsmoe One would think a group that calls itself the Military Religious Freedom Foundation would be in favor of religious freedom in the military, right? Why, then, does the MRFF claim “victory” when the militaryrescinds an invitation to Rev. Franklin Graham to address a Pentagon Day of Prayer breakfast? They objected to Graham’s invitation […]
