Conservative Truth
Expect a Correction or Crash in 2018
Dr. Tom Barrett
President Trump has been trumpeting the huge rise in the stock markets as one of his great economic accomplishments. My advice to him? Stop it ASAP! He should give the credit for this precarious stock market to Obama, who started the rise by printing money backed by nothing and doubling the National Debt during his eight years. Then when it crashes, Obama’s most ardent supporters will curse the day they elected him – as most of America already does.  Read more...
 
Special Commentary
Brian W. Peterson
For millions of Americans – and perhaps many millions more throughout the West – the power of popular opinion is stronger than science, religion, morality, or logic. When talk show host Sean Hannity interviewed Senate candidate Roy Moore, who had been accused of various sexual misdeeds, popular opinion rose up against Hannity, even though he asked difficult questions. Popular opinion ignored the tough questions and remained horrified that Hannity even spoke to the man. His side of the story did not deserve to come out, thus mental robots rushed to social media, unable to think for themselves but repeating what others said, and demanded that advertisers abandon Hannity. Some did.  Read more...

Are those who do not study history doomed to make fools of themselves? Or, is it yet another case of how ignorance of the past shows up in the continually clueless rhetoric of the DNC's present.

There was a recent tweet from the co-chair of the DNC, Keith Elison, that fully demonstrated the famous quote from writer and philosopher, George Santayana: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This could be the motto of today’s Liberal/Leftist movement.  Read more...
Confusion in the Democrat Party
Peter Lemiska
In a cynical grab for more votes, the Democrat Party has dastically altered its perspective on illegal immigration.  Once a party that recognized the need to remain a nation of laws, it now openly defies those laws through its sanctuary city policies.  Read more...
Americans are divided socially and ideologically - it even extends into families
Bob Pascarella
The holiday season of peace has just ended. There were a number of expressions of dismay in mainstream and online social media sources of news of what, in an already complex and divided nation, could further complicate the state of disunity. It seems the family has become involved and is another factor in our uncompromising attitudes, and all at the mere mention of a particular person.  Read more...

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) purports to be “America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization.” Its stated mission is to “enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.” However, it is really a front group to implement sharia and to defend almost any Islamic activity no matter how perverse. At the drop of a hat, they will defend Islamic acts of terror - and they always make sure they have a hat to drop following terrorist attacks. Read more...

There has been a lot of talk about book releases recently. There is, of course, Hilary Clinton’s new book, which we will discuss in the coming weeks because it is being powerfully overshadowed by a recent release of Michael Wolff’s book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

Let’s talk about something that matters. More specifically “a book” that matters. The book that has spawned the greatest healthcare, childcare, education, disaster relief, housing, and anti-slavery systems the world has ever seen. That book happens to be the top-selling book in the world and in America.  Read more...

We on the right are not just (or should not be) here to regurgitate the latest data because it makes our guy look good. Is this not why we dislike of the left? That it always and only comes down to politics – the truth be damned.

Rather we, at every opportunity, should be trying to educate the public, as well as disseminating good news. A well-informed electorate is the only chance we have at maintaining a majority and continuing to enact conservative policy.  Read more...

On the surface, it’s great to hear that companies are repatriating themselves. Not just money coming back in, but companies either moving back or expanding facilities in the United States rather than overseas.

The problem is that many states are so desperate for the potential of an additional tax base that state governments tend to offer extraordinary perks and tax breaks to entice the multi-national corporations to set up shop in their state. So much so that the companies end up receiving ridiculous amounts of relief and “incentives” from the state for the privilege of effectively underwriting the new facility.  Read more...

The ministry is a wonderful calling but sometimes a terrible career! Frankly, I love being a pastor. It’s my calling. However, the career part is harder. One time my wife Becky and I were at a time-share presentation in Maui, Hawaii. The salesman asked what I did for a living. I said I was a minister. Then he said in a disappointed manner, because stressed out people are the best sale prospects, “Oh that means you have a low stress job.” You should have seen Becky. She laughed and said, “You don’t go to church, do you?” Ten years later she recalls that incident like yesterday.  Read more...

President Donald J. Trump described the Iran Nuclear Agreement as the “worst deal ever.”  He faces a January 13 deadline on how to proceed with the accord signed into law by President Obama. Speculation remains on whether the President will scrap the agreement. He discussed Iran’s dangerous and destabilizing activities, including their support for terrorism. President Trump expresses concern for arrested protesters and speaks about longing by Iranian citizens to reclaim their history, culture, and cooperation with their neighbors.  Read more...

It is being reported that “the California board of education brought to an end a decades-long campaign to emphasize lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender historical figures in state social-studies and history textbooks, approving K-8 volumes that make identity politics of all kinds the core of the subject.”

So grades K-8 will now be learning alternative history, of all the significant achievements of America’s homosexuals and cross-dressers. As a parent, I can think of nothing more enlightening than to teach my five-year-old that Ralph down the street, who dresses like a woman, is historically significant.  Read more...

A gentle breeze of sexual accountability has become a hurricane resulting in enormous destruction - some good, some bad. My concern today is that everyone be treated the same. Let’s be concerned for all abused women (or men), and equally indignant about all perpetrators. I will seek fairness and accountability for everyone - no exceptions. You say, “Anyone should agree with that,” but many, in reality, do not agree, as you will discover in this column. Read more...
