“Through a multitude of counselors there is safety” Proverbs 11:14
Every president has a multitude of counselors: national security, economic, health, environment, etc. Some serve officially. Others are at his beck and call. This president, however, is sorely in need of one more — a linguistic counselor.
There was a time when a person’s dollar earning power could be measured by a simple vocabulary test. The theory being that a large vocabulary is a good indication of a person’s level of education — the more you know, the higher your earning potential. Certainly, that is no longer the case as our schools have been dumbed down and a good vocabulary is no longer valued. Continue reading “Needed: A New Trump Advisor”
How can China hurt us? Let us count the ways:
First and foremost, they hold most of our foreign debt, 19 percent or $1.17 trillion. By buying U.S. treasuries, China keeps our interest rates low but it also gives China leverage over U.S. fiscal policy.
What would happen if China stopped buying U.S. treasures or, worst still, called the loans?
China also controls the supply of the world’s rare earth metals that are used in most of the high-tech products we take for granted like smart phones and hard drives. More importantly, these materials are necessary components for building smart bombs and military radar. It’s not that we don’t have any of these minerals. It’s just that our government shut down our only rare earth mine and allowed the Chinese to buy the company that supplied them.
Lastly, China now has access to our most sensitive military technology. That which wasn’t stolen was transferred overtly by previous administrations. Continue reading “The U.S. vs China”
James Comey was an imposing presence at the FBI. At 6’8” he was head and shoulders above most, and from this lofty perch he often looked down his nose at everyone else. After being unceremoniously dumped by President Trump, he now feels the need to preach to us and has written his version of the events for a book titled A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, which is coming out later this month.
Those who have worked with Comey say preaching is something he did quite often when facing colleagues who disagree with him. That earned him the title of “The Cardinal.”
Newspapers and television networks have been working overtime to make sure Comey has as loud a megaphone as possible in which to tell his tale of woe and sling as much mud as possible in the direction of his persecutor in the White House. Continue reading “The Comey Cavil”
This is the week that Christians prepare themselves to commemorate Christ’s death and resurrection. By far, it is the most important event on the Christian calendar. Without Christ’s sacrifice, there would be no forgiveness of sin and without His resurrection there would be no hope of eternal life.
While, mere ritual and religious observance are useless, it is important that we fully understand and remember the price that was paid for us and why? It is also a time, for a serious reality check. Continue reading “Easter Reality Check (The Gods that Tempt Us(“
On Monday, reason prevailed as Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s president, Dr. Michael Driscol, announced that senior Lake Ingle would be allowed to return to his religious studies class needed for graduation.
Ingle was kicked out of that class by Professor Allison Downie and accused of violating the schools Academic Integrity Code. What was Ingle’s crime? He dared to question the premise that there are more than two genders.
For the uninitiated, discussions on college campuses and most public schools have turned into politically correct indoctrinations where no contrary facts or opinions are allowed. If one dares to question one’s teacher or professor, the student is often “shamed” into silence. Hardly a healthy environment for learning! Continue reading “Sex or Gender? (At One University Reason Prevailed)”
Did the president have a brief affair with a porn star in 2006? I’m sure no one would be surprised to discover that he did. Will 60 Minutes run an interview with Stormy Daniels? If so what can it possibly tell us that we don’t already know? Daniels is a whore who sees herself as a “star” and wants to publicize her experience with Trump to polish that star and increase her income.
No, she doesn’t turn tricks for money. The definition of a whore is someone who engages in sex for money. Daniels has explicit sex in front of the cameras for money. That makes her a super whore. Furthermore, she directs others who do the same, not exactly a candidate for sainthood. Continue reading “The President, the Porn Star, the News Media and the Electorate”
Monday was the latest ugly demonstration by the so-called “Dreamers,” the young people who were supposedly brought here by their illegal parents as small children and, we are told, know no other country. This one was staged to mark the passing of the deadline from President Trump to end the illegal DACA program that Obama created with a stroke of his pen.
Two activist federal judges have issued injunctions blocking his order. Now we must wait for the program to wind its way up the slow as molasses judicial system to the Supreme Court. This is cruel and completely unnecessary as President Trump offered a compromise to, not only allow those DACA recipients to stay, but untold numbers of other illegal young people, even those who snuck in on their own claiming to be teenagers. Additionally, Trump is offering to give them a way to become full-fledged U.S. citizens with all its benefits and privileges, to boot. Continue reading “Where are the Patriots Among the Dreamers?
