Armed law-abiding citizens are not considered the enemy in Texas

By now everyone knows about the citizen heroes that brought down the heinous Texas gunman that massacred 26 worshippers and wounded another 20 people as they attended church Sunday morning, resulting in the largest mass murder in Texas history. What has not been emphasized is that those numbers would have been much higher had the same thing happened […]

We don’t have to wait for CIA documents on the Kennedy assassination

The CIA showed total contempt of Congress and the president, Oct. 25, by not releasing all documents in their possession dealing with the Kennedy assassination, even when ordered to do so by President Donald Trump himself. Trump compromised by giving them an additional six months to comply. The intensity of long-term CIA defiance says two […]

Bill to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency still progressing through the House

“The Environmental Protection Agency shall terminate on Dec. 31, 2018.” This one sentence, proposed law House Resolution 861, is probably the shortest and most direct ever proposed in U.S. history. It was introduced Feb. 3, by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL, and is presently working its way through four committees: Agriculture; Energy and Commerce; Transportation and Infrastructure and […]

In America, ‘We don’t worship government – We worship God’

If the president does what he said he will do, as so far Trump has, Christians and Christian values can look forward to a new era of respect and value. President Donald Trump gave two powerful, policy-changing addresses Friday, Sept. 13, one to the Values Voters Conference which is filled with mostly Christian leaders and the second […]

States form an alliance to defy President Donald Trump

Under the leadership of California Gov. Jerry Brown and with Govs. Andrew Cuomo of New York and Jay Inslee of Washington complicit, the United States Climate Alliance was formed. It is an alliance of states committed to upholding the 2015 Paris Accord from which President Donald Trump has threatened to pull out and renegotiate. “California […]

Trump wants states to pay more for infrastructure

President Donald Trump has promised to spend a trillion dollars on infrastructure, but he wants to leverage this money to provide the extra from the states and cities to make their projects possible and not have the federal government pay the whole thing. This way he gets the most bang for the federal buck. Whether Trump understands […]

Race baiting dominates the news

In 20 minutes of casual news scanning on just one network, I found five news items dealing with race baiters – those who see racism in everything. They appear to want to rewrite U.S. history emphasizing white oppression. Here is what I learned. At the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, students, notably the Black Law Students Association, […]

Why ‘hate speech’ is, and should remain, constitutional

Alexander Hamilton once wrote, “The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.” One such right […]

Constitution Day is largely a forgotten holiday

Constitution Day was Sunday, Sept. 17, arguably the most forgotten designated day in America. The mainstream media will say nothing of it. No parades or city council proclamations; nothing of it in the week prior in university classes. No three-day weekend, beer busts or barbecues in its favor. It is as though it never happened. Probably not one in […]
