Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem
Dr. Tom Barrett
In 1948 President Harry Truman made the United States the first nation to recognize the State of Israel. But for some reason, he was unable to locate its Capital.
 
This is strange because immediately upon the formation of the nation, it named Jerusalem as its Capital. Its Knesset (Parliament), Supreme Court, the Prime Minister, the President and all major government offices are located in Jerusalem. 
 
Truman must have been confused about this because he ordered the US Embassy in Israel to be built in Tel Aviv. In fact, of the 200+ nations in the world, the US Embassy in Israel is the only one that did not locate in the nation's Capital.  Read more...
Christmas – a Time for Peace
Paul Hayden
What is the war? We are in a war, to be sure. It is constant. It is a war of thoughts, of ideologies, a fight to the death. It is a war for our hearts and minds and lives. We see and hear it going on around us all the time.

Who wouldn’t love to live in peace? So many of us would. But there are those who do not seemingly want peace. They want what they want, and it is not peaceful. Without becoming like Pollyanna (a young, exceedingly positive girl in a book from 1913, and a movie from 1960), how might we work together to project the world into more of the peaceful and good it can be?

May God bless you with His peace - with a wonderful Christmas and holiday season.  Read more...

Jerusalem today is a city of 870,000 citizens, including 37-percent Muslim-Arabs - although not one Jew is permitted in Mecca, Saudi Arabia! In 1995, Congress passed a bill that allowed the U.S. to recognize Jerusalem as the capital and move our embassy from Tel Aviv to the Holy City. However, that has not happened because the law permitted the president to delay the move for national security reasons. Every president since then has been too cowardly to do the right thing. They are fearful of antagonizing radical Muslims.   Read more...

We live in a day when good sound reasoning has taken a permanent sabbatical to the land of PC fantasy. MSM, Democrats, and liberals and well over half of academia’s darlings have chosen to abide where truth never darkens the door.

This condition is best illustrated by President Trump’s recent retweet of videos posted by a British nationalist who stands against the Islamisation of the United Kingdom, which clearly show Muslims in acts of serious violent crimes. Read more...

With the recent victories by Democrats in the November 2017 elections, there is much talk about what Republicans should learn from this and what they should do now.

One argument is that Republicans must more clearly "embrace Trump.”  That is, they should align themselves with the President and demonstrate their allegiance to his policies and his persona.

Others say that it’s time for Republicans to distance themselves from "The Donald" and seek to win more support from liberals and independents.  Read more...

I haven’t loved everything Trump has done, and I’m still not of fan of his dearth of humility, but hey – we can’t have everything. At this point, if he can continue his attempts at downsizing government, returning our money and land back to us – he can tweet and bloviate to his heart’s content.  Read more...

The Imperial Japanese Navy attacked the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, near Honolulu, Hawaii, on Dec. 7, 1941, at 7:48 a.m. Hawaiian time. The surprise attack lasted two hours - two hours that “will live in infamy.” The base was attacked by 353 fighter planes, bombers, and torpedo planes in two waves that were launched from six aircraft carriers. Eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged and four were sunk, and 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded. All battleships except the USS Arizona were later raised, and six were returned to service and went on to fight in the war.  Read more...
Or did it actually produce the best results for furthering the cause of the Truth?

This past week we heard the smug, self-satisfied leftists who masquerade as journalists, crow about finally catching the conservative investigative activist for Project Veritas, James O’Keefe, in a sting aimed at the Washington Post.

O’Keefe, whose nonprofit Project Veritas, has done several stings in the past, calling out liberal media bias at outlets like CNN and the New York Times, had allegedly sent a  woman to the Post with a scandalous story designed to pile on more dirt to candidate Roy Moore of Alabama.  Read more...

The stakes are enormous. The fate of an elected president hangs in the balance. From the FBI point of view, a corrupt agency and corrupt agents are at risk of being exposed and punished.  What I fear is that the same Russian operatives who wrote the “Trump Dossier” are pulling the strings in the FBI itself. Hence, Russia-gate is a diversion from corruption and moles within the FBI. It’s a big mess, as Trump might say.  Read more...

Last week, Tampa authorities announced the arrest of a serial killer who had almost kept the Seminole Heights neighborhood hostage for 51 days and had killed four innocent Tampa residents. Officials have the gun that was used in all four killings and the killer admitted to owning the weapon. The Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan declared, “I assure you this is the man who did this.” However, the killer did not admit the killings nor is there a motive at this time.

What many authorities overlook is that evil people don’t need a motive. They do evil because they are evil. Often, they think they are doing the world a favor by eliminating prostitutes, politicians, or perceived threats to the killer or to society.  Read more...

Love is the one gift that always fits and is always appropriate. Christmas is about God giving His love away. But think about it, just one day before Christ was born, the ‘present’ was still in the future. On Christmas day, the present in the future became God’s ‘present’ in the present. History and prophecy intersected. Revelation became reality. There was a time gap between God’s plan unfolding and God’s plan unfolded.  Read more...
If the American people lose their faith, and religion is cast aside, darkness waits.
Bob Pascarella
One of the manifestations of a culture in decline is an absence of religion, and that void is replaced with moral relativism - the belief that conceptions of truth and moral values cease to be absolute and become relative to the person or group holding them.  Read more...

What if someday, I decide I’m sick of the grind. I’m tried of working and earning a living. I just want to be taken care of. Heck, at this point I’m even too lazy to go to the welfare office and fill out all that paperwork in order to collect free stuff. I’m just done with all the responsibility of being a societal human.

May I then self identify as some sort of unique zoo animal? What animal? I don’t know – I’m questioning. But I will get a place to sleep, three square meals a day, and my very own habitat to stretch my legs, should I desire. I mean – why the heck not? Of course this sounds completely ridiculous, or it would have maybe a decade or so ago. Now, I’m thinking it doesn’t sound that far-fetched.  Read more...

The elite SAS was founded in 1941, for the North Africa campaign against the Nazis. This was six months prior to the Americans entering the war. Two years later, in 1943, began what we know today as the Navy SEALs. When they began, the SEALs were known as the Naval Combat Demolition Unit, or NCDU, and worked exclusively in the water.

For almost three quarters of a century, the British SAS, SEALs, SWCC, Army Rangers, Delta, Green Berets, Marine Corps Special Operations Command, or MARSOC, and Air Force Special Operations Squadrons, or AFSOC, have been male only.  Read more...
