It is a season of hard lessons. It can be fruitful – but only if the lessons are learned. Don’t hold your breath. Trump seems to be following through with his campaign promise to drain the swamp.

Many of our Christian brethren demand more refugees be brought to the U.S., citing as justification the Good Samaritan parable and commandments to love our neighbor and to share the Gospel.
If the FBI has discovered 300 refugees that slipped through “rigorous” vetting, how many more will be among the next 680,000?
Since Trump took on the intelligence establishment he has been afflicted by one leaked scandal-in-the-bud after another, all clearly originating from that realm of secrecy populated by agents and spies. Coincidence? Or conspiracy?
It’s that time of year when praise is heaped on the man many Americans believe is the all-time best United States president. Sadly, they are wrong. It’s hard to be more wrong.
While we’re at it, let’s make English speaking, reading and writing the law of the land, certainly for people who want to come here from other countries.
But before long, it became obvious Obama wasn’t incompetent. He was in fact achieving precisely what he told everyone he intended to achieve: fundamentally change America.
If an instance of disputable ‘news’ automatically disqualifies a publication from consideration, we would be left with no publications.
Donald Trump apparently wants to downsize the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Remember the last president with similar intentions?
You don’t need “fact-checkers” to know what’s what. Indeed, be aware: the more self-laudatory the fact-checker, the more likely you’re getting sophisticated spin.
How did Trump “persuade” Carrier? Initial news reports including in the Wall Street Journal, say Carrier was promised $7 million in tax breaks.
Congratulations America. “Elections have consequences.” Babies can be saved. Taxes can be reduced. Wars can be averted. Borders can be patrolled. Islamist terror can be defeated. Jobs can be created.
It’s not an either-or choice. It’s not politics or God. It is, and should be, both. Voting for godly men can result in a nation’s laws being more good than bad, accommodating good while suppressing evil.
Hillary won’t even concede that a baby on the verge of birth is a ‘person.’ That’s how she justifies killing the child for the mother’s convenience.
Hillary regards people as widgets, not human beings deserving of dignity. Most assuredly, Hillary will be literal death to millions of unborn babies who she finds no reason to regard as human beings.
In Hillary Clinton, a third great leap looms. She would dramatically advance big government and progressivism to extents unimagined.
There is nothing wrong with grieving. The Bible tells us to grieve when appropriate. Even Jesus wept. Patriotism also is not an evil when it exalts high principles that set us apart from the rest of the world.
If you agree that a vote for Clinton will certainly do serious harm and that a vote for Trump may do serious harm, the choice must be clear: Vote for Trump. There, I said it again. Lord forgive me.
Stark reality and fanciful imagination seem to be converging in a hurry. This is one of the byproducts of losing credibility. Who knows what’s true today?
So, are y’all getting a little jaded as you discover the mainstream press is entirely in the tank for Hillary Clinton? Do you long for the good old days when reporters were like Clark Kent?
What if Donald Trump isn’t the prat-falling carnival buffoon he appears to be? What if he isn’t really making unforced errors? What if he’s not really his own worst enemy?
If you’re opposed to Hillary Clinton being elected, a vote for Trump in California won’t stop her from winning that dark, dark (in so many ways) blue state.
Submitting to evil is the last thing Christians should do in a nation where the people are the governing authorities – as opposed to a nation ruled by kings or emperors.
We are on the eve of Independence Day, a commemoration exalted by our founding fathers, although in our era less known for what it originally signified than for what it has become – a day off to relax, recreate and watch exploding fireworks.
Under the best of circumstances, Lynch’s impartiality was highly questionable. Now with this behind-the-cockpit conference with Bill, there’s no denying her impartiality is ruined as far as Hillary’s investigation.
In the wake of a shooting that took 50 lives and wounded 53 others, Brokaw complained that the bad guy had used a gun to “settle” his grievance.
God has lost patience with a society that exalts idolatry, depravity and even baby murder, and that even punishes Christians expressly for their faith. The good ole US of A appears to be living out the first chapter of Romans.
Should Trump win in November, and admittedly the odds are extremely unlikely, it’s only fair that Americans should have some recourse.
Benjamin Franklin put it this way: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Unfortunately, it is this whacky portion, the third of a third of a third of voters, who set the tone and create the public image for the rest of the Trumpeters. Among the larger Trump crowd, no doubt there are reasonable people, as well as some who always hang out at the political fringe, yet are willing to engage in reasoned debate over Trump’s merits and demerits.
