To all our readers and followers,

Blessings for a good and wonderful Thanksgiving as you share with family and friends, and as you take heart to be thankful to God for life and all that it is. 

For those struggling with issues of life, Blessings also for you to have relief and answers and a rich awareness of how much God loves you.

I'm sure we all remember being taught the story of the First Thanksgiving. What most don’t know is that much of what we were taught is myth. But, as in most things, the real story is more interesting than the fable. The Thanksgiving story is more about an early form of Communism than it is a warm and fuzzy story about cooperation between the colonists and the Native Americans. 

One thing we should get straight from the outset; Thanksgiving to the Pilgrims was not a time for feasting – it was a time for fasting, prayer and gratitude toward God. They had many times of Thanksgiving, but the feast about which we have been taught was not one of them. The idea of referring to the harvest meal the Pilgrims shared with Indians as “Thanksgiving” was an 18th century invention – 200 years after the fact.  Read more...

I laughed several years ago when a friend showed me the Sunday Bulletin from his church. It reminded members that the following Sunday was their monthly “Bring Your Gun to Church Week.” At first, I thought it was a joke since this was years before church shootings became commonplace. But he explained that one Sunday a month many of the church members had lunch and then went to the firing range together to maintain their firing skills.
I was reminded of this after the tremendous response I received from my most recent article ("Terrorist Massacres Entire Church") in which I advised pastors and churches to establish a security plan. As a result of that article, I spent most of the last week advising churches on security and the most necessary components of a good security strategy. The fact that I am a pastor along with my experience in the Marine Corps and as an officer in the sheriff's department helped me relate to the pastors as they sought answers.  Read more...
Special Commentary

There’s a reason why President Trump says that the fate of Senate candidate Roy Moore will depend on whether the charges against him are proven to be true. Trump knows that if they get rid of Moore, using charges that obviously cannot be proven, he’s their next target. Sex-gate will follow Russia-gate.

In this atmosphere, women charging sexual harassment are easy to find, even if their charges cannot be proven. The men are assumed to be guilty as charged.

One can argue that everything but the kitchen sink has already been thrown at Trump and he has survived nonetheless. But since the election we have seen that the allegations of sexual harassment have been cast as a major blight on American society, making it more likely that “new” accusers against Trump will be found and that a new variation of the “scandal” will be used to cast a pall over the presidency. The same members of the GOP establishment lined up against Moore will be called upon to dump Trump.  Read more...
What's truly dangerous about a gun is why a person uses it

What actually stops an evil psychopath is what we saw on Sunday—a good guy with a gun.” – Jordan Stein, spokesman, Gun Owners of America

Would the massacre have happened if the congregation of the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas had clung as tightly to guns as their Bibles? On Sunday, in a bizarre echo of Sayfullo Saipov's Halloween rampage in New York, suspect Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, brought death into a house of worship. Like some villain straight out of the slasher flick “Scream,” he was outfitted in black body armor and a skull mask. Within this sacred space, this Grim Reaper killed 26 innocents and wounded 20. Thirty miles east of San Antonio, in the worst mass shooting in Texas history: about 4% of the town's population (reported as 683) were slain.

Published by Lamb and Lion Ministries out of McKinney, Texas, “God’s Prophetic Voices to America” released its first edition in 2017. It is a book written by the Senior Evangelist and founder of Lamb and Lion Ministries - who is himself, one of America’s most significant prophetic voices.
The ministry has over 20 national and international outlets and a weekly television program called, Christ in Prophecy. Dr. Reagan, the writer of 15 books, is a well-traveled preacher, himself with a full itinerary in which he carries the message of the gospel and the soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ across the nation. 
The rise in hate demands we should all take a step back

Since the beginning of this nation, there has always been division of one sort or another among the American people. The original “Great Melting Pot”, a mixture of ethnicities and religions often had different beliefs and opinions. Sometimes we scream and shout at one another to vent our frustrations and disagreements. But over the past several decades, something has drastically changed in the way we think and communicate, and not for the better.   Read more...

“According to a newly released survey conducted to assess American attitudes toward socialism, nearly half of American millennials said they would rather live in a socialist country than a capitalist one. Some even said they would prefer to live in a communist country,” writes the Blaze.
And the percentage seems to grow every year. This is a sad fact, but a fact all the same. But one can’t blame millennials as much as the education that was provided them. They haven’t been taught that as bad as socialism is, it invariably gives way to something far worse – communism. Socialism has always been a mere layover toward the final destination of communism – which has been responsible for snuffing out well over 100 million lives worldwide, and causing misery to untold billions.
However attractive these political hucksters make it sound - socialism is not now and will never be cool.  Read more...

Remember, just because you have education doesn’t mean anything if you are educated the wrong way.
Declaration signer and founding father, Dr. Benjamin Rush, also known as the Father of Public Schools, said, “The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.”   Read more...

The shrieking mob running through village streets carrying pitchforks and flaming torches is looking for someone, anyone to hunt, harry, and harass. Probably most of the sexual predators ending up being tarred and feathered deserve it, from Spacey to Weinstein to Segal. But, the mob is intoxicated and will only be satisfied with a higher level victim - a right wing, Christian, senatorial candidate - Roy Moore of Alabama! To make it worse, Moore is a potential senator who will not go along with the establishment. The establishment requires his defeat at any cost in the special election Dec. 12, of this year.  Read more...

When elected officials deliver service to Americans their personal qualities always matter more than the positions they have held, because over time these qualities are always revealed, whether good or bad.

I contend that candidates for any office whether the small-town mayor or president are ideal when they possess four personal qualities: good values, good decision-making skill, right views on the issues, and a spine of steel.

I detest unfairness and hypocrisy, and I have seen boatloads of both in the Judge Roy Moore issue. Without knowing all the facts, as only Moore and his accusers know, I have decided to believe a man who has had a lifetime of dedicated service to people while standing upon the rock of Truth.     

It’s rather simple: either Moore is guilty or not. If he molested, not dated, but molested, teen girls when he was an adult then he should recognize it as sin, repent of it, refuse to do again and do restitution–apologize to the women involved and to Americans for lying to us about it. Then he should throw himself upon the good will of Alabama voters. If he did that, I think he could still win! After all, doesn’t everyone believe in personal redemption?  Read more...
Bush loyalty resides with the political class, not the voters
David Hunter
Given the unanticipated election of Donald Trump (now a year past!), it's difficult to determine which establishment faction is more perturbed, liberals or old guard Republicans. Despite clear and unambiguous Clintonian corruption, neither “side” seems capable of respecting the democratic process when one of their own is not in the winner's circle. Thus, to them, the people's will—and, by extension, the fate of the nation be damned!  Read more...

Despite being a culture of death, Americans have uncompromisingly (or so we think) done away with slavery in a pursuit of liberty for all men and women.
Noah Webster clarifies that this liberty of one depends not so much on the removal of all restraint from him, as on the due restraint upon the liberty of others.” 
Now this restraint on the liberty of others is exemplified in chattel slavery.  Webster defines a slave as, “A person who is wholly subject to the will of another; one who has no will of his own, but whose person and services are wholly under the control of another.”

The so-called 'Trump Dossier,' financed by the Hillary campaign and provided by the KGB through a former British intelligence agent, has fizzled out. It has been supplanted by the Moore Dossier, concocted by Washington Post reporters working for their billionaire owner, P.T Barnum-like Jeff Bezos. This variation of the ploy, with a new target, seems to have legs. Many Republicans and conservatives are falling for it.

But is there really any reason to believe the 'Moore Dossier' has any more validity than the 'Trump Dossier?'  Read more...

Judge Roy Moore will be a lot of fun in the Senate as he opposes the establishment. He will be hated by members of both parties and loved by patriots everywhere. For sure, he will cause constant heartburn to the Republican establishment.
I shared the speaking platform with Moore at a national preachers’ conference in Indianapolis a few years ago but we are not personal friends; however, I believe he is telling the truth since he has made so many principled decisions during his life that cost him dearly.
Moreover, I am asking Alabama pastors to actively support him by sending this column to all their members. Each pastor will tell his members that he can’t speak for the church officially about supporting candidates, but he can inform them of his choice. The church van could even take people to the polls - as long as they take Democrats and Republicans.

The annual budget for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is a little shy of $8 billion. By government standards this is chicken feed - it is approximately 2/10 of one percent of the overall federal budget ($3.8 Trillion). Yet it is still greater than the entire budgets of New Hampshire, Vermont, Alaska, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Idaho, and Delaware.

Just what are we who are footing the bill getting for our $8 billion?  Read more...

People inspire me when they show they have heart. They accomplish more, they persevere, look up, live up, and perform up, even in those challenging times we all have. Often the difference between being hired and not being hired for the job you are interviewing is heart. Employers know the difference between passion and passivity.  That’s important to know in times like these.

Over the years I’ve never thought much, one way or another, regarding the use of a Special Counsel, Independent Counsel, or Special Prosecutor.

Now I’m thinking it’s all a sham.

Today, I placed my Glock 22 pistol on the table right next to my front door. I left its magazine beside it, then left it alone and went about my business.

While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor's son across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the stop sign near the front of my house.

After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was quietly sitting there, right where I had left it. It had not moved outside. It had not killed anyone - even with the numerous opportunities it had presented to do that. In fact, it had not even loaded itself. Well, you can imagine my surprise, with all the hype by the Left and the media, about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people. Either the media is wrong, or I'm in possession of the laziest gun in the world.  Read more...
