Conservative Truth
Dr. Tom Barrett
I don't usually call on my 40 years of investing experience to comment on stocks - but today (10/10/18) was no normal day. Today’s market rout was the worst day since the bloodbath in February.

  1. The DOW lost 832 points – a  3.17% plunge
  2. That’s the third worst one-day fall ever
  3. That put it at 4.4% from its highs
  4. It closed below 25,600 – a critical point, after opening the day above 26,400
  5. The S&P 500 is down 3.3%, and has lost almost 5% from its highs
  6. This is the first time it has closed down 5 sessions in a row since Trump was elected
  7. The NASDAQ was hardest hit, dropping 8% from ten days ago
What does all this mean? First, we have seen an unprecedented rise in the stock markets due to Trump’s election. It started when he won the election, not when he took office. That means that a large part of the increase was based not on what he had done, but on what the market thought he would do. On the other hand, if Hillary had been elected, we would have already seen the major crash that market experts have been predicting for a long time.  Read more...

Will Rogers, the great American 19th-century storyteller once said, “If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.” It is clear to me that no one on the Democratic side saw what was happening with their attack on Judge Kavanaugh. Also, no one told them about how deep the hole was that they were digging. I believe this hole is so deep its walls are about to come crashing down upon them. In the end, the Democrats will not be able to dig their way out for a long time. The walls are now the midterm elections and many Democrats who thought they would sweep into office will find themselves out of work on January 3, 2019.  Read more...

I am elated and extremely grateful that both President Trump and Brett Kavanaugh had the courage to hang in there. Given the GOP's history of surrendering to negative media, dirty tricks, and screaming activists, Democrats and fake news media expected Trump to withdraw his nomination of Kavanaugh or for Kavanaugh to cower away in disgrace and fear. Thank God both men stood strong.  Read more...

One of the last remaining representatives of the old Rockefeller wing of the Republican Party, liberal Never-Trump Republican Senator Susan Collins, made history by casting the deciding vote for Judge Brett Kavanaugh after getting assurances that he would vote to preserve the pro-abortion ruling Roe v. Wade. The recipient of a Planned Parenthood award, Collins gave Kavanaugh his crucial 50th vote, confirming him as a Justice on the Supreme Court, after calling him a “centrist,” not a conservative.  Read more...

Our society is doing a fine job of coarsening on its own. To date, there have been countless political protests and marches that have ended violently. Protests which begin peacefully enough, soon devolve into trashing property, burning cars, and attacking political opponents. Politicians themselves are being confronted in public, on the urging of their political rivals, and it won’t be long before this too devolves into physical attacks.

Upon further reflection, I believe the popularity of the bloodsport called MMA, is actually a trailing rather than a leading indicator of where this nation is heading. We are becoming an increasingly intolerant, more violent society, and MMA is merely a manifestation of it.  Read more...

Christian often take a fatalistic approach to politics with an almost Calvinistic idea that if evil prevails it was all supposed to happen anyway. The battle against evil for many Christians stops short at the voting booth, but there is not one iota of scriptural support for this kind of negligence.  Read more...

It is generally taught and generally thought that this 1973 ruling made abortion legal in America.  This is NOT TRUE. Let me repeat this. Abortion was not legalized by this or any other decision of the Supreme Court or of any court. Abortion was murder prior to the case of Roe v Wade, and abortion is murder still.  Read more...

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.   Read more...
The divide among the American people is growing, and it knows no boundaries.

Recently I invited several acquaintances who I had not seen or spoken to for some time, actually since the presidential election, to join me for dinner. Although my intent was to have a pleasant evening, and to catch up on matters of family and business, just small talk, I must admit deep down I knew there was a possibility that there could be fireworks, and to be honest I looked forward to the occasion to engage in some good conversation and critical thinking, so to speak.  Read more...

Wow, the screaming feminists came out of the woodwork, out from under rocks, and out of their ivory towers to vent their spleen about my column, “Brett Kavanaugh—“It’s Ain’t Necessarily so!” I’ve been called many vile things via email, phone calls, and on social media simply for an opinion that rape is rape only if there is resistance.  Read more...

Guardians of the Swamp
Bob McCray
The left in this country have depended on having Judges appointed in as many key judgeships as possible in order to legislate from the bench, pushing their left wing ideology. If you think the left is foaming at the mouth now after failing to stop Kavanaugh, just wait till the next Supreme Court Justice is appointed by President Trump. It won’t be wild accusations, it will be hardcore intimidations and you can count on coordinated violent actions, the left will act as if the world is coming to an end.   Read more...
