Senate Republicans Face Gay Test PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher

The Republican members of the United States Senate face a test of their backbone soon when they vote on the confirmation of President Obama’s nominee for Secretary of the Army. The proposed Secretary of the Army is Eric Fanning, a well-known openly gay activist.

Fanning previously worked for the Air Force and failed to do anything to curb faith based persecution of servicemen like Master Sergeant Phillip Monk.

Fanning has spent the last several years lobbying for open transgenderism in the ranks of the United States Air Force, as Undersecretary and later as Defense Secretary Chief of Staff. His pro-gay efforts paid off when both of his bosses, Deborah Lee James and Ash Carter publicly supported his proposals, alleging that the “times have changed.”

Three Hour Trump Bash/Carley Boost PDF Print E-mail

The Republican National Committee (RNC) arranged with liberal leftist Cable News Network (CNN) to host an event for all Republican presidential candidates at the Reagan Library in California last week. The poorly veiled goal of the “forum” was clearly understood to be to knock Donald Trump out of first place in the polls. The format was petty, spiteful and childish. The moderator tried hard to create feuds between Trump and the other candidates. Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and even Mike Huckabee resisted the encouragement to attack the front runner.

“Mr. Trump, you have been critical of Mrs. Fiorina’s appearance, tell her what you think of her appearance.” was the tone of the typical question. Trump overcompensated with something like: “She is a beautiful woman with a beautiful face.” Then Rand Paul, who apparently thought he was being overlooked and shortchanged on television time, chimed in. He opined that it was inappropriate for Trump to criticize the personal appearance of ugly, fat and otherwise unattractive people. That was an opening that the witty Trump could not allow to go unnoticed.

In Defense of Kim Davis PDF Print E-mail

I am amazed at the volume and viciousness of the nonsense being generated by the illegal and unconstitutional incarceration of Kim Davis in Rowan County, Kentucky. If you don’t understand what is going on (as opposed to what should be going on) please be sure to read Mike Scruggs’ article in the 9/9/15 issue of The Times Examiner. He did a fantastic job of exposing the legal fallacies of those who think Kim did something wrong and should be jailed, fined, and fired. I beg your indulgence for a few seconds while I expose their logical fallacies.

They claim to base their arguments on Amendment XIV of the U. S. Constitution, which says (in part) “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Therefore (they claim) all Americans are under the equal protection of the laws, and homosexual couples must be allowed to obtain marriage licenses and get married the same way heterosexual couples do. “It is the law of the land because five Supreme Court Judges said so.”

Religion Enters the Presidential Race PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher

Dr. Ben Carson introduced the subject of religion into the presidential race last week by questioning the depth of faith of Donald Trump. Trump wisely did not take the bait and responded by questioning Carson’s energy level. Quickly, Carson apologized for his comment and said he did not want to enter “that arena.”

Religion of a sort is already in the race. Former Senator  Rick Santorum is a very devout Catholic and Mike Huckabee is a former Baptist preacher who abandoned that calling for politics and show business. On occasion, Huckabee also plays bass guitar with rock bands.

Most of the Republican and all of the Democrat candidates consider themselves too “elite” to be bothered with such a “private” matter as Christianity. After all, someone may become offended.

Are Your Prayers Answered? PDF Print E-mail

Islam has turned this world into a giant horror movie. On six of the seven continents Muslims are chopping off the heads of Christians, Jews, and anybody else that refuses to convert to Islam. They are burning people alive, and shooting them down like ducks in a shooting gallery. Have you, like me, prayed and prayed begging God to put a stop to this epidemic of evil? Do you wonder why God doesn’t seem to hear, or doesn’t seem to care?

Thousands of years ago Habakkuk wrote lucidly as he experienced the same dilemma: “O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! Even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!” I can’t say it any better than Habakkuk did.

Destroying the Symbols of History PDF Print E-mail

Americans are horrified when they see televised images of radical Muslims destroying ancient Christian works of art and structures in Iraq and other far-away countries. At the same time, elected officials in this country are turning their backs and some are leading in the desecration and destruction of historic symbols and monuments as part of politically motivated mass hysteria known as Confederaphobia.

Recently Kenneth Neill of Unionville, Tennessee, expressed the feelings of many native Southerners in a letter to a national magazine.

“As I’ve watched the news recently since the tragedy in Charleston, the reaction and over-reaction by so many leave me wondering if this is what going insane feels like. We’re hearing ignorant, misinformed statements and downright lies concerning not only the battle flag but other symbols of our heritage as well.

Governor Haley Seeking National Fame on Backs of South Carolinians PDF Print E-mail

According to the Liberal Media, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is a strong contender for Vice President on the Republican Ticket. The first generation American whose parents came to this country from India was elected to her first term as a Tea Party candidate. Alaska Governor Sara Palin came to the Palmetto State and gave her the conservative nudge she needed to win the election. Once elected, she was quick to change her political alliances.

Haley walked away from her Tea Party supporters during the first term and picked up support from the main-line Republicans, big business and the Chamber of Commerce. . In her second term she has aligned herself more with the RINO wing of the National Republican Party that is said to favor Jeb Bush for President and will do whatever is necessary to destroy the campaign of  Donald Trump after Labor Day.
