The Coerced Demonstrations Against the US, vs the Genuine Protests Against the Government
Dr. Tom Barrett
For the last several months there have been protests in the streets of Iran. Some were tens or hundreds of thousands strong. Others may have had a million or more out on the streets. These have been two very different types of demonstrations. But you will only hear about one of them in the New York Times and on the liberal TV networks such as ABC, CBC, CNN, NBC and CNBC.
 
The first type is what we have seen for decades since the Islamic militants took over. Irate-looking Iranians shaking their fists while shouting “Death to America,” and “Death to the Great Satan.” What you don’t see are the armed plain clothes security agents that make sure the crowds keep chanting as long as the cameras are rolling.

These are the genuine protestors. These are freedom-loving Iranians who risk their lives to make sure that the world knows the truth. The terrorist Iranian general that our military just took out killed 1,500 of the demonstrators, and arrested another 5,000 who have not been seen or heard of since. The nation shut down the Internet so people could not communicate about their missing loved ones. Read more...
(They actually didn't - but they should.)

Franklin Graham, son of the late Billy Graham, posted this on Facebook: "Christianity Today released an editorial stating that President Trump should be removed from office - and they invoked my father's name (I suppose to try to bring legitimacy to their statements), so I feel it is important for me to respond. Yes, my father Billy Graham founded Christianity Today; but no, he would not agree with their opinion piece. In fact, he would be very disappointed. I have not previously shared who my father voted for in the past election, but because of this article, I feel it is necessary to share it now. My father knew Donald Trump, he believed in Donald Trump, and he voted for Donald Trump. He believed that Donald J. Trump was the man for this hour in history for our nation."

In case you're wondering what "Pharisees" they were an ancient Jewish sect that had pretensions of superior sanctity. They followed all the rules strictly, but not from their hearts. They believed they were better than all other Jews (and everyone else on earth, for that matter). Today the word is commonly used to define a person who is a self-righteous hypocrite. Read more...

Is 'Liberal Humor' an oxymoron?
Ric Wasley
Question: What is one of the quickest ways to identify a totalitarian and repressive regime?

Answer: Their complete and total lack of a sense of humor.

This premise is easy to test out. Think of all of the regimented, intrusive and repressive societies and regimes that have existed throughout history and still blight our world today. What is the one thing they all have in common? The inability to laugh at themselves and the violent and repressive penalties they try to inflict on anyone who dares to. Read more...

President Trump, Crown Prince Muhammed Bin Salman, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu effigies are burned by government-organized demonstrators. Threats abound from Ayatollahs, Democrats in Congress, leftist media, celebrities, and academics who lament Soleimani’s death. Iranian citizens have no such remorse.  Read more...

There was a shepherd boy in the Bible named David. He was the youngest son and the least likely candidate for a new king for God's people. But just like you and me, God put a “giant” inside of him. But David needed to access and appropriate that giant. The same is true for us.  Read more...

Americans were jubilant during the 1920s as the stock economy expanded quickly, more than doubling between 1920 and 1929. It seemed the stock market could not go down. Greedy, speculative Americans even borrowed money to purchase stocks. Everything was positive and people lost their perspective throwing concern, caution, and common sense to the wind. Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow will produce more profits. Thus, the label “the Roaring Twenties.”

However, the roaring twenties came to a sickening halt on Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929, when the stock market hit bottom and newspaper headlines screamed, “Wall Street in Panic as Stocks Crash!” The Great Depression...  Read more...
Is the knowledge and genius of history being threatened by deniers, revisionists, and Democrats?
Bob Pascarella
Down through the centuries there have been periods of time that stand out beyond many of their so-called chronological counterparts, and that had profound effects on a nation and in many cases the world. These are periods within the time frame of the Gregorian calendar, and can be part of an era, a generation, or an age of mankind. There are numerous examples; however for purposes here, I’ll list those several we are familiar with, and eventually arrive at 2020. The years given are based on theological and scholarly studies.  Read more...
Threat intelligence and actions against threats to our country.
Cliff Kincaid
A so-called “former CIA analyst” is leading House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s effort to stop President Trump from taking further military action against Iran’s top terrorist leaders. Her name is Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) and she says that she “participated in countless conversations on how to respond to Qassem Soleimani’s violent campaigns across the region.” In other words, she’s all talk, no action. Now that Trump has acted, authorizing the killing of this terror master, the Pelosi argument is that Trump must be stopped and Iran’s other top terrorist leaders must be saved, so they can scheme against America in comfort and security. Slotkin is the CIA face for this effort. Pelosi is counting on people to think the title “CIA analyst” carries some credibility.  Read more...

We have gone from TV shows like “Father Knows Best” to countless shows in which father is portrayed as an idiot, the butt of jokes, often spoken to with disrespect from his wife and children.

As a child, my black family loved watching The Andy Griffith Show. Like Andy's son Opie in the show, my four siblings and I had great fun with our dad. And yet, we knew our place, never daring to speak to him with disrespect.  Read more...

The recent assassination of Iranian military leader Qasem Soleimani carried out by United States military personnel under orders from President Donald J. Trump has caused much turmoil in America. From the instant that the details of the deadly mission were announced, critics of the president have been shrill in their condemnation of his actions. At the same time, supporters of the President are universally outraged that the president’s decisive and successful action is being criticized at all.  Read more...
Crocodile tears shed for revered general.
Bob McCray
In the days following the death of the terrorist leader Ossama Bin Laden, praise from around the world was heaped on the sitting President. Just the other day another bloody terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani was killed. Instead of praise, you hear insults and condemnation against the President. What’s the difference? The first was then-President Obama, a Democrat, and the second is President Trump, a Republican.  Read more...

The Democratic Party of 2020 bears little resemblance to the lifelong political home of former President Harry Truman. The President known for his “Give ‘Em Hell” approach and his famous “The Buck Stops Here” motto would be unfamiliar with a party that is moving at light speed to the far left.

There are no prominent Democrats today on the national scene who advocate tax cuts like former President John F. Kennedy. In addition, there are very few who are as pro-military as former U.S. Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson (D-WA). Today, the party is filled with progressives, socialists, and Trump-hating members of the political establishment. Along with a hard-core left-wing agenda, almost all Democrats of 2020 share an unrelenting hatred of the President.  Read more...
