What is it about human nature that makes us more willing to believe the worst news rather than the best news? During the second week of the latest international climate change conference being held in Katowice, Poland COP24, two groups showed up with news - one group predicting a catastrophic disaster and the other with a message of hope and encouragement.

The DNC wouldn’t need to worry how to silence preachers preaching against evil if they would just stop promoting it.

I spend a lot of time in the pulpit. So I suppose that I more than most should find offense in the recent complaint by Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez that too many people get their information from what they hear in, “the pulpit on Sunday.” But I wasn’t offended when the Democrats booed their party for re-inserting the word “God” back into their platform in 2012. I wasn’t offended when that same group booed the opening prayer of their convention in 2016. I wasn’t offended when Barack Obama mocked those who cling to their religion. So when I learned of Perez’s comments, I admit to finding them par for the course. In fact, I see them as more curious than anything.

It is way past time to get a real commitment

It is way past time to get a real commitment for a wall. I do not care how many Americans support or oppose the wall. The President made it a central plank of his platform, Republicans have campaigned in favor of it and pretended repeatedly to fund it, and I think it is a visible symbol of our resolve to both secure our borders and stop these ridiculous caravans that keep traveling north.

The Bible and its account of origins is treated with utter contempt by cultural elites, those who look down their noses at the rubes and hayseeds (like me) who place great confidence in the Book. 

Well, the elites better hope their peers don’t get their hands on the report about the latest in genetic science. The reason: genetic scientists are telling us now that there is powerful and virtually irrefutable scientific evidence that every human being on earth has descended from a single pair of parents. The Bible, of course, goes science one better, and even gives us the names of our original ancestors, “Adam” and “Eve.”

For a taxpayer-funded organization, Planned Parenthood has gotten away with a lot. So three years ago, when David Daleiden stumbled on the biggest scandal of the year -- the group's baby body parts ring -- states thought they finally had the proof they needed to cut those Medicaid contracts. Eleven tried, only for some to end up in courts that couldn't decide if they had that right. Yesterday, the Supreme Court had a chance to settle the issue. It passed.

Muslim Holy War against the Red Army - Part 2 of a Series

Soviet Mi-24 helicopter gunship. Inflicted heavy casualties on Mujahidin holly warriors.
Soviet Mi-24 helicopter gunship. Inflicted heavy casualties on Mujahidin holly warriors.

Once the Muslim imams and mullahs began preaching Jihad against the Russian infidels and the Mujahidin had some guerilla warfare successes, the People’s Democratic Army of Afghanistan (PDA) began to melt away. The invading Red Army could no longer count on effective local political and military support.  On January 1, 1980, the PDA 15th Division revolted in Kandahar. Three battalions of the 11th PDA Division deserted when the Soviet 201st MRD (Mobile Rifle Division) rolled into Jalalabad. By mid-1980, the once 90,000-strong PDA had melted away by desertion, casualties, and switched loyalties to only 30,000 confused and largely ineffective troops.

A “happy Christmas?”  What happened to “Merry Christmas”?    Back in the halcyon days of our cultural innocence and our racial/gender/transgender/non-mulicultural/age/class/political/religious/ educational “insensitivities”, Americans thought nothing of wishing their friends and family a “Merry Christmas”.  I still do so, and I refuse to capitulate to those liberal and progressive “moonbats” and their brain damaged, guano-producing flock in our midst who consider me to be hopelessly old fashioned, culturally elitist, set in my ways, and unwilling to change.  To those accusations I proudly and without apology plead “guilty”.  Period—end of discussion!
