Time for Civil Disobedience, Christians

- Jul 5, 2015

“Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.”
– John 15:20

The push back has begun. Christian business owners, lawyers, parents, judges, county clerks, organizations, universities, hospitals, adoption agencies and other individuals and groups have been given an ultimatum by five unelected,
unaccountable liberals in Washington, D.C.: “You must now obey us and disobey God. You must pretend, with us, that sin-based same-sex ‘marriage’ is an actual thing.”



The Problematic Scenarios in Syria: The Choices Facing Israel

- Jul 5, 2015

The current balance of power in Syria is influenced by the three-pronged constellation in the Middle East, marked by the Iranian-led Shiite axis; the Saudi-led Sunni axis; and the Salafi jihadi elements, which constitute a third pole in the equation. Syria today is the primary battleground, and all the interested parties are represented there, including groups belonging to the Shiite axis; groups belonging to the Sunni camp – among them global jihadi elements such as the Islamic State; world powers such as Russia and the United States; minority groups fighting for their lives, such as the Kurds, the Druze, and the Alawites; and the countries sharing common borders with Syria.



River of Fire Smoke Darkens Sun and Moon

- Jul 5, 2015

My eyes are burning. The morning Sun, already 40° high, glares a lemony-orange. It’s meteorologically clear, but the sky looks like paste. What’s going on here?



Obama Admin Knew Al-Qaeda Was Planning Attack in Benghazi 10 DAYS IN ADVANCE

- Jul 5, 2015

Now there’s more proof that they lied.

Saudi prince giving away his money buying immortality for the Democrats?

- Jul 5, 2015

There should be no big mystery as to why Alwaleed bin Talal, the Saudi prince Bill Gates talked into giving away all his money to charity, is dumping his riches.

No one’s given away all of his money since the last saint more than 2000 years ago.

Charity is no longer as conventional as it once was.  In the case of the notorious Clinton Foundation, charity eloped with power and has never been the same.



Whither the “Love” in Illegal Alien Francisco Sanchez, Jeb Bush?

- Jul 5, 2015

Back in April of 2014, Republican Presidential candidate Jeb Bush created a bit of a furor when he argued that some illegal aliens steal into America unlawfully “out of an act of love,” and, as such, should receive preferential treatment and tolerance.

Bush’s argument was generally met with outright disdain, or amusement, or both. The idea that borders and immigration laws and enforcement should be based on anything other than compliance with the law was correctly seen as a sign that Jeb Bush is not ready for prime time in front of a national audience.



The shrinking workforce of Obama’s America

- Jul 5, 2015

Ronald Reagan used to counter liberal conventional wisdom by saying he measured compassion, not by how many people the government helps, but by how many people don’t need the help. And he succeeded in that vision by presiding over an economy that grew massively – with net job creation of more than 16 million during his presidency.

Reagan gave us an enormous and highly productive work force, and that’s why there was so much prosperity during his time in office.



The real low-down on Pope Francis’ Encyclical on Climate Change

- Jul 5, 2015

Extremely curious at the media allegation that the “scientific Pantheist who advises Pope Francis” and has swayed “Laudato Si” (named so after St. Francis of Assisi’s canticle), “seems to believe in Gaia, but not in God,” I set out to read for myself the climate change encyclical in Italian.

Pope Francis, began his 192-page Lettera Enciclica, Laudato Si’ del Santo Padre Francesco Sulla Cura Della Casa Comune,” by quoting a St. Francis d’Assisi canticle, and by saying that we are abusing and irresponsibly using “our sister Mother Earth, which sustains and governs us and produces diverse fruits with colourful flowers and herbs.”







In the Year of Our Lord, 2015 and of Our Independence, 239

- Jul 5, 2015

Two hundred and thirty-nine year ago, a handful of men, expressing the sentiments that had already been expressed in over ninety similar declarations, committed to paper a consolidation of those documents that had preceded it, and the will of the people of the 13 British colonies of North America.

After over five years of combat, rag-tag farmers, fighting against the greatest military force in the world at that time, prevailed in a war they believed, with honor, to be “the right thing to do.”



For Independence Day: A Review of Emerson’s “Concord Hymn”

- Jul 4, 2015

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.



SCOTUS Ignites New Level of Resistance

- Jul 4, 2015

My sofa felt pretty comfortable. Ninety percent of the time, I’m on the road as chairman of the Conservative Campaign Committee. This was a rare occasion to be in town for the Volusia 9/12 Project monthly meeting. I saw the email reminder about the meeting earlier that day and thought it might be good to attend considering the two devastating outrageous rulings handed down by the Supreme Court (Obamacare and same sex marriage).



Image of Shakespeare Discovered in Botanical Tome

- Jul 4, 2015

Botanist Mark Griffiths found it hard to believe that he had discovered what had been missed for four centuries: the only known contemporary portrait of William Shakespeare.



The Darkness Hormone

- Jul 4, 2015

“Do you think melatonin is of any value?” a doctor recently asked me. So if a doctor is wondering about this natural remedy, there must be many patients who are asking the same question. So what do we know about it?
