I’m reminded of the ‘climate change’ line:
“I’ll think about considering it’s a crisis when people who keep telling me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis”

“As with many of their tactics, apparently Democrats never expected that their four years of harassing Republican officials in restaurants would ever be reciprocated by the other side, something they’ll likely be discovering to their chagrin over the next four years.”—Ed Driscoll


Governor Phil Murphy

Nancy Pelosi goes to get her hair done, but nobody else can. Gavin Newsom attends a fancy dinner, but nobody else can. Now, Democratic Party Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey has been caught being a hypocrite, too.

What is it with these Dems, thinking the rules don’t apply to them? Do they genuinely believe, “Do as I say, not as I do?”

Unreal, man.

Murphy and his family were caught in a restaurant, breaking his own rules, and caught hell from a constituent who discovered he was mask-less. Executive order 183 said in part that Face coverings are required in indoor public spaces and in outdoor public spaces when social distancing is difficult to maintain.

Watch (Note Strong language)


“What is the argument that Trump ought to be doing what he can to calm us? I hear Biden and his people telling us they want to bring calm to the country, but they’re declining the opportunity to just be calm themselves until the state officials certify the results of the election.

Personally, I feel calm about waiting for that. Why isn’t that okay? It seems to me that as long as they choose to pressure Trump to concede before the vote certification, they’re forfeiting the high ground of calmness above all.”

“I think that by any meaningful measure, we became a third world country on November 3rd.
Because regardless who is finally declared to be President, from that day forward into the foreseeable future, the minimum necessary for a majority of Americans (regardless of party) to have any faith whatever in the integrity of any election, anywhere in the US, will be for every voter to cast their vote in person, and dip their finger in indelible ink…
…just like any other third world country.” –GOF

“To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child. For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of history?” ~ Cicero

Few Students Know Anything About Our Civilization

Most American high school and college students can hector you all day long about an array of “social justice” issues, but if you asked them anything about the roots of our civilization in ancient Greece and Rome, you’d get a blank stare. Of course, that’s because their coursework fills their heads with trendy politics and neglects subjects that used to be the pillars of educated citizens.

A recent report published by the Independent Institute makes that point and in today’s Martin Center article, Shannon Watkins focuses on it.

Rather than the blatantly misleading “1619 Project,” the authors of the report argue in favor of a “490 B.C. Project,” that being the date of the first great clash between the Persian Empire and the Greeks. The authors say, “Our ideas about democracy, the idea that there is a natural law for all human beings, the question of whether slavery is natural, all come from the ideas and politics of the Greek poleis. Both Greece and Rome wrestled more than two thousand years ago with what citizenship meant, what freedom meant, what justice meant— just as we wrestle with them today.”

Watkins writes, “At UNC-Chapel Hill, for instance, students can fulfill the ‘Historical Analysis’ general education requirement by taking either a class on ‘Classical Greece’ or one on ‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Histories in the United States.’”

She concludes, “At the university level, it is not enough to simply offer courses on the classical world. Students need guidance and should not be expected to discern what general knowledge is the most essential for them to learn to be well-formed thinkers and responsible American citizens.”


“This is the choice we face as a country going forward. Do we want the party that has a very casual relationship with violent mobs to be in charge of everything or would we prefer some adults in the room? The Democrats have been so supportive of the violence since May that there is no reason to believe it will end even if they win everything next week. Rioting has become their modus operandi now.” –STEPHEN KRUISER

“Christianity isn’t about being socially popular, but a lot of people — especially among church leaders who want to be socially popular — seem to think so.” GHR

Church Leaders Sell Their Souls to the Democratic Party.
Evangelicals stumble over themselves to endorse a political party and a candidate openly against life

Over the past couple of months, while the world has been distracted by all-things-COVID-19, a very important bit of news slipped under our radar and went virtually unnoticed. The contemporary church sold its soul to the Devil for a pot of political porridge.

Consider the evidence.

Last week “pro-life” evangelicals across the land started stumbling over themselves to endorse a political party and a candidate who is openly against life and against evangelicals.

At the same time, pastors, priests and laymen too numerous to count continued to trample each other in a parade proclaiming that some lives matter but others don’t (especially the lives of Donald Trump and his supporters).

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, otherwise known as Rome, the vicar of Christ pontificated that “Trust… in the role of international organizations (apparently not Christ?) … is indispensable for building a peaceful world.”

And off to the side of all this neo-Marxist goose-stepping stands the Congregation of Critical-Race Racists who, shamelessly shame all who, to their shame, are born of a wrong race, for which they are ashamed.

This past January, the Christian Research Center of Arizona Christian University surveyed 2,000 adults in the United States from four major religious groups: Evangelicals, Pentecostals and charismatics, mainline Protestants and Catholics.

In this survey, respondents were asked about their views on 51 topics, including marriage, absolute truth, the sanctity of human life and the authority of the Bible.

While there were notable differences among the four Christian traditions, “The most startling realization,” said research director George Barna, was “how many people from evangelical churches are adopting unbiblical beliefs.”

Mr. Barna goes further to clarify his concern.

According to his research, 52 percent of evangelicals now say they do not believe in objective moral truth or that the Bible is inerrant and trustworthy in all its content. Seventy-five percent believe that people are basically good instead of basically sinful. Forty-three percent believe Jesus sinned during his time on earth. Fifty-eight percent believe that the Holy Spirit is merely a symbol rather than a person. And a majority of respondents do not believe in the exclusivity of the Christian faith.

Other findings from the survey include that 44 percent of evangelicals believe the Bible’s teachings on abortion are ambiguous, 40 percent do not believe human life is sacred, 34 percent do not believe marriage is between one man and one woman and 43 percent do not think that God has a unified purpose for all people.

Yes, this political season has shined a spotlight on some very ugly facts concerning America’s heart and soul, and among them is this — Christianity in the United States is now in the midst of great reversal of its Great Awakening.

Under the banner of being “woke,” the church is now being “de-formed” rather than reformed. Two thousand years of ecclesial teaching is now being dumbed down and redefined, and those charged to be the guardians of orthodoxy now appear to be the very ones who have unlocked the door to rampant heresy. Today’s Evangelical leaders are no longer known for imparting the good news of the euangelion but rather for being hell-bent on selling-out the Gospel and its creeds all for the sake of the thin gruel of political popularity and being culturally in vogue.

While this is all very sad, we must remember it is also no surprise.

St. Paul warned of it in his second letter to Timothy:

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of self … boastful, proud … unholy … conceited … having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people … They are men of depraved minds …; their folly will be clear to everyone … Imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned … and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus …”

Since the very first days of the church we have been told that this falling away would come. But we’ve also been told something else. There will always be a remnant. There will always be those who “continue in what they have learned from the Holy Scriptures” and against whom the gates of hell cannot prevail. Christ promised it, and we can take his promises to the bank.

As my friend, Jim Garlow has said, “What a wonderful time to be alive!” The battle lines are clear. There is little ambiguity. In the days ahead, take courage. Stand strong. We’ve read the end of the book. We know who wins. Not even hell itself can defeat the obedient and faithful Body of Christ — His one true church

Dr. Dobson’s Open Letter To Christians Regarding The Election

Dear Friends,

This will be my final letter before Americans cast our ballots on November 3rd. It is a breathtaking moment in the history of the United States. Perhaps I will be permitted to repeat a brief comment I made in my August letter because of its relevance to today. Many political commentators have stated that this election is the most significant since 1864, when Abraham Lincoln vied for a second term against Democratic nominee, George McClellan. The future of our beloved nation hung in the balance that year. If Lincoln had lost, the Civil War would have ended precipitously and the wretched evils of slavery would have remained legal in the Confederate States, and perhaps even in the North. Had Lincoln been defeated, the Union would have been torn asunder. Thank God Mr. Lincoln won, even though it cost him his life!

Now we are approaching another presidential election that carries enormous implications for the stability of our democratic system of government. Indeed, Newt Gingrich said that what we are facing now might bring an end to civilization as we have known it. He may have been referring to a possible revolution. Regardless, I believe his grave concern for our nation is valid. For centuries, America has stood as a shining light for liberty and freedom in our nation and around the globe. If we abandon our founding core values, the world will suffer for it. The binary choice before us is that stark.

How will Americans, and how will you, decide who to vote for as our Chief Executive Officer? I have heard from dozens of friends and acquaintances in recent weeks who tell me they will base their decision solely on a candidate’s rhetoric, tone, style, or likeability. Does that describe your thinking process?

Just now, as I was about to react to that idea, my wife, Shirley, brought in an email that she had received a few minutes before from a friend. It quoted an anonymous statement that gets to the heart of the issue, as follows:

“This is not a junior high or high school popularity/personality contest. I’m not voting for the person—I’m voting for the platform!

I’m voting for the Second Amendment. I’m voting for the next Supreme Court justice. I’m voting for the electoral college. I’m voting for the Republic in which we live. I’m voting for the police and law and order. I’m voting for the military and the veterans who fought and died for this country. I’m voting for the flag that is often missing from public events. I’m voting for the right to speak my opinion and not be censored for it. I’m voting for secure borders. I’m voting for the right to praise God without fear. I’m voting for every unborn soul that is at risk of being aborted. I’m voting for freedom and the American dream. I’m voting for good and against evil. I’m not just voting for one person.

I’m voting for the future of my country!”

I couldn’t have said it better, although I want to add to the writer’s list. I’m also voting for candidates who will exercise sound leadership internationally. I’m voting for those who will support Israel. I’m voting for those who will protect children from leftist curricula. I’m voting for the nation’s fiscal integrity. I’m voting for parental rights. I’m voting for school choice and home education. I’m voting for freedom in the suburbs. I’m voting for Little Sisters of the Poor and other Christian organizations. I’m voting for racial unity. I am voting to support “In God we trust” and school prayer. I’m voting for freedom of conscience for physicians and other professionals. I am voting for marriage. I am voting for life in all its dimensions. I am voting against euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide. I’m voting for wisdom in handling the pandemic. I am voting for protection for the Church from oppressive politicians.

One final thought: With all respect, this election isn’t about you. It certainly isn’t about me. It is about our kids and grandkids. It is about those who are yet to come, if they are allowed to live. This vote has awesome implications for future generations and the nation we love. It is about our Constitution and the immutable, God-given rights it protects. It is about values, and truth, and greatness, and hope. That is why the notion of choosing a president based on frivolous personality characteristics is so unfortunate.

In summary, this election is for all the marbles . . . the Presidency, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Supreme Court. Together, they set the agenda for this country.

If you love America and don’t want it to be “fundamentally transformed,” it is time to do three things:

  1. Pray like never before that God will spare this great nation from tyranny and oppression of religious liberty.
  2. Volunteer to help your candidates.
  3. Vote for the candidates who will best uphold your values and convictions.

Also, consider forwarding this letter to your friends, family, and others whom you might influence.

May God bless America!


The great lesson of the Trump era is that pretty much all of the “nonpartisan” institutions are filled with corrupt, partisan hacks. Who are all on the same team, regardless of what flag they fly. –Prof Reynolds

“Of course ACB is doing well in the hearings! As a mother of seven kids she has experience answering stupid questions from immature minds.”

“From a policy standpoint this is the major reason why I believe Trump is most likely to be reelected. The Democrats have become aligned with socialism and violent crime. Those on the lower economic tiers, primarily minorities, will be the most adversely affected by a socialist agenda and they know this.”
—Joe Huffman

Trump Makes ‘Law and Order’ Pitch to Black, Latino Voters in ‘Blexit’ White House Speech

……Sleepy Joe Biden, he’s betrayed Black and Latino Americans, if you think he can run this country you’re wrong. For half a century. We’ve got to vote these people into oblivion, got to get rid of them, so bad for our country. Black and Latino Americans are rejecting the radical socialist left and embracing our pro-jobs, pro-worker, pro-police—we have to have law and order—and pro-American agenda…………

“What’s been going on since Sunday is more pathetic than media malpractice. It’s a gaggle of emotional midgets in the midst of a snot-bubbling, diaper-filling tantrum that is utterly contemptible. I might be just a little sympathetic to it if they hadn’t been doing it for four years already. We’re beyond ‘Boy Who Cried Wolf’ at this point, we’re in ‘let these miserable little brats cry themselves dry’ territory now.”–Kruiser

“I keep telling people not to ask what else can go wrong this year but people seem to not be taking my advice. 2020 seems to be offended by the question and always has an answer to it that nobody likes. Never tempt the universe. The universe is bored and does not take kindly to being trifled with.”
– Stephen Kruiser

“Barrett looks like she stepped out of central casting for ‘soccer mom.’ When she is confirmed, she will be the first married female Justice since 2010 (when RBG’s husband died) and the first female Justice with minor children. I think she has more appeal to married suburban white women than conventional wisdom believes.”

Blame the gubberment way back when Marbury was decided and everyone figured out (or as some opine planned in advance to take advantage of)  that the normal course of human events would turn the court into just another political organ where the President and a majority Senate could install ‘reliable’ judges that would make rulings in accord with their general wishes.

Ginsburg flap shows Supreme Court, justices are too important.

“When your political system can be thrown into hysteria by something as predictable as the death of an octogenarian with advanced cancer, there’s something wrong with your political system. And when your judicial system can be redirected by such an event, there’s something wrong with your judicial system, too.”
