Today is Yesterday’s Tomorrow

Today is Yesterday's Tomorrow
Science fiction has predicted many of today’s realities from cell phones to tablets. Many things that are today part of History like walking on the moon, organ transplants, and space stations were once flights of fancy.

Futurists build current events on a foundation of History to provide a launching pad for visions of what is to come. One of the most widely recognized Futurists is Alvin Toffler whose seminal works include Future Shock and The Third Wave. He is also the one who told us, “Change is not merely necessary to life - it is life.”

Quit Disarming Teachers

Quit Disarming Teachers
As one of the millions of teachers in America I know there is one thing I don’t ever want to be…a fish in a barrel.

Think of the hero teachers who’ve thrown their bodies in front of students taking bullets fired by mentally deranged mass murderers. If these heroes had had a weapon does anyone doubt they would’ve used it to protect those students? Aspiring mass murders who seek out gun free zones to commit their atrocities are inherent cowards. And they’re also untrained and unprepared for anyone with the ability to stand up to them. As soon as someone with a gun shows up they either kill themselves or die.

How Can You Stay So Optimistic?

How Can You Stay So Optimistic?
People ask often me “How can you spend so much time following the news and writing on the bizarre twists and turns of our political theater of the absurd and still remain so happy and optimistic?”

The answer is, “It’s easy because my hope is in Christ and all of this is just a soap opera.”

DNC Hack Wasn’t A Hack

Feb 22, 2018 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

DNC Hack Wasn't A Hack
President Trump tweeted, “I never said Russia did not meddle in the election, I said ‘It may be Russia, or China or another country or group, or it may be a 400 pound genius sitting in bed and playing with his computer.’ The Russian ‘hoax’ was that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. It never did!”

Kim Dotcom has said, “Let me assure you, the DNC hack wasn’t even a hack. It was an insider with a memory stick. I know this because I know who did it and why. Special Counsel Mueller is not interested in my evidence. My lawyers wrote to him twice. He never replied.”

This Obumer Hangover Just Won’t Go Away

This Obumer Hangover Just Won't Go Away
One of the primary accusations against President Nixon that caused him to resign was that even though he was never shown to be personally aware of any abuses committed in his name,  he fostered an environment that encouraged such behaviour.

The truth is finally seeing the light of day.  And what do we see?  That President Obama was if not personally complicit in the growing list of abuses exposed,  he set the tone and offered cover for his minions as they ran amuck trashing the FBI, the CIA, the IRS, FISA, and any other agency that could advance his transformative agenda, secure the nomination for Hillary, and thwart Trump’s nomination, election, and administration.

America Off to the Races

Jan 31, 2018 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

America Off to the Races
Will Mueller and his Clintonista hit squad manage to entrap President Trump in perjury before he can prod the DOJ to do a serious investigation of the Clinton mob? In other words will the Silent Coup succeed in overthrowing the President before the President can get his Deep State infected DOJ to carry out a serious investigation of the Obama-Clinton-FBI CABAL that has been conspiring since before last year’s election to fix the outcome and since to nullify the results? That is the question.

On the Silent Coup front:

The Mueller persecution continues to pursue President Trump to testify under oath, a pre-requisite to springing his perjury trap. The President’s supporters hope and pray that he isn’t led to do so. If his lawyers suggest it they should be sued for malpractice. Instead he should do as Clinton did. Ask for the questions in writing and respond in writing. That way it isn’t under oath and everything can be vetted seven ways to sundown before it is transmitted to the inquisition.

DACA Will Never Be Enough

Jan 27, 2018 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

DACA Will Never Be Enough
The movement to legalize the illegal will never stop until the untold millions of undocumented democrats have the right to vote.  Eternally shopping for the a perpetual majority so they can finish the work of fundamentally transforming America the Progressives agitate ceaselessly for amnesty.

If DACA is ever passed it will become the vehicle for millions of low information voters dependent on the government to overflow our system in a tsunami of votes for bigger government.  The courts will stretch it to cover anyone and everyone.

The Smoking Gun II—Still Smoking

The Smoking Gun II -- Still Smoking
Hillary Clinton and her crew get a pass for colluding to stack the deck against Bernie. No matter what the evidence revealed the FBI nomenclature predetermined that New York’s sixth crime family was untouchable. Congressional insiders report they have uncovered new irregularities and contradictions inside the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email server.

Investigators say there is written evidence that the FBI found evidence that some laws were broken when the former secretary of State and her top aides transmitted classified information through her insecure private email server.

Avoid the Amnesty Trap

Jan 12, 2018 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

Trump and the Amnesty Trap
This is a plea to President Trump to stand by his promises and avoid the amnesty trap that the Progressives are trying to lure him into.

Instead lead the congressional forces of those who want to make America great again.  Use every tool, every power you have to enact the fo0llowing:

  1. Ending chain migration and the visa lottery
  2. Mandating employer use of E-Verify
  3. Construction of a southern border wall

The Smoking Gun

Jan 6, 2018 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

The Smoking Gun
Let’s see; the Clinton campaign pays for a former British spy to work with Russian intelligence to create a bogus document that is then used as the basis for wiretaps aimed at the Trump campaign and the media is trying to tell us, “Move along nothing to see here.”

Was the so-called dossier a hit piece from the beginning?  Maybe we should listen to Mary Jacoby, the wife of Glenn Simpson, the former Wall Street Journal reporter who started Fusion GPS, the firm behind the dossier.

She said on Facebook, “It’s come to my attention that some people still don’t realize what Glenn’s role was in exposing Putin’s control of Donald Trump.  Let’s be clear. Glenn conducted the investigation. Glenn hired Chris Steele. Chris Steele worked for Glenn.”

Real Christmas Better Than Any Movie

Dec 20, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

You died for sinners just like me, a grateful leper at Your feet
In December of 1914 in the first bitter winter of a long bitter war,  the solders of the German Empire and the soldiers of the British Empire defied the orders of their officers.  They abandoned their hastily dug entrenchments that would soon grow into an elaborate maze of trenches stretching from Switzerland to the English Channel to meet each other in no man’s land. They sang hymns and exchanged gifts in a spontaneous outpouring of the feelings of peace, fellowship, and forgiveness which were then the staples of a Christ centered Christmas season.

In the midst of the War to End War these enemies found peace in the love of their Savior.  Can we at least hope that in the midst of what feels like a terminally divided America if we would take His hand, if we would follow Him maybe we could do the same?

The season for which He is the reason is upon us so let us reflect:

Impeach Mueller!

Dec 8, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

Impeach Mueller!


That is the screech we’re about to hear emanating from the denizens of the swamp. Sure Maxine Waters and a few others have been singing this song since election night when their plans for the last nail in our coffin went down in flames. Now it’s beginning to percolate through the monotone media megaphone. And though this was predicted in this column by this author before the inauguration, it still has a jarring impact on the senses.

Back in the Dream Times when the Deep State was able to turn Watergate into a Silent Coup the precedent was set. If someone tries to overturn the moneychanger’s tables they must be destroyed. If it’s a president, even one elected for the sole purpose of adding some reality to the mirage of our functioning oligarchy which portrays itself as a dysfunctional democratic republic, they must be hounded out of office, disgraced, and discredited.

How to get Swamp Gators to at least read the Constitution

How to get Swamp Gators to at least read the Constitution
The Democrats haven’t been this angry since the Republicans ended slavery.

If Islam is so wonderful why do Muslims seek refuge in Christian countries?

The NRA is the only organization in America that is consistently blamed for actions its members don’t commit.

According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, from the 1950s through July 10th of 2016, 98.4 percent of mass shootings have occurred on gun-free zones, with just 1.6 percent occurring where citizens are allowed to have firearms with them.

A Protection Racket Wrapped in a Cover-up

Nov 18, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

A Protection Racket Wrapped in a Cover-up, Robert Mueller, Deep State
Is the entire Mueller investigation a false flag distraction to cover the tracks of the people who really did attempt to undermine an American presidential election?

Some background to this part of the plot must include the fact that the former FBI Director James Comey has admitted to illegally leaking transcripts of privileged conversations with the President to the press.  Why did he do it?  Comey testified before a Senate Committee that he orchestrated the leak of accounts of conversations with President Donald Trump because he thought it might lead to the appointment of a special prosecutor to lead the Russia investigation.

Hillary and the DNC Front Group

Nov 10, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

Hillary and the DNC Front Group
In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election and during the ensuing campaign the Democratic National Committee acted as a front group for the Hillary campaign, if not breaking laws certainly trampling on the spirit of the law in its unbridled pursuit of power.

The DNC sold its soul to the Hillary campaign. Donna Brazile was the interim head of the DNC during and right after the election. She took over after the artful dodger, Debbie Wasserman Schultz who had been run out of Dodge after leaked emails showed the depth of her complicity in the rigged primary. According to Ms. Brazile, “Debbie was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired. ...”

AntiFa Terrorists in League with ISIS and Al Qaeda

AntiFa Terrorists in League with ISIS and Al Qaeda
The violent left wing revolutionaries who identify themselves as AntiFa are announcing to the world that they plan on staging a major attack on American democracy beginning Saturday, November 4th.

These brutish thugs have attempted to terrorize the American people since last year’s presidential campaign. They staged violent protests at many Trump campaign events. In Chicago one event had to be cancelledbecause the police could not guarantee Mr. Trump’s safety. If you noticed, none of Hillary’s campaign events were attacked by the supporters of Mr. Trump or the AntiFa bully boys.

Election Hacker and American Spy-Master Revealed

Election Hacker and American Spy-Master Revealed
For months we’ve heard endless reports concerning the supposed ties between the Trump campaign and the Darth Vader of the progressives’ nightmares, Putin’s Russia. The thin gruel of this plot has swirled from the swamp in DC through the megaphone of the ABCCBSNBCPBSCNNMSNBC Cartel until one would think every day Americans out here in fly-over country were actually thinking about it.

Finally after months of exhaustive research the spy-master of the most extensive surveillance campaign aimed at Americans can be revealed. The one man who used every avenue possible to invade the privacy of American citizens in History has had the mask of denial ripped away. Besides Hillary and the DNC rigging the primaries to stop Bernie who actually tried to use illegally obtained information to influence the presidential election in 2016?

Divided We Fall

Oct 20, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

United we stand has long been part of the inner strength that enabled America to rise from thirteen disjointed colonies on the edge of a lonely sea to the pinnacle of power.

Some people believe in the Six Degrees of Separation Theory: that everyone in the world are six or fewer steps away from each other and that a direct line such as “a friend of a friend” can be drawn to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. Some people believe all of us are in this thing together, and that diversity is our strength and I am he as you are she as you are me and we are all together.

Random Thoughts

Oct 12, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

If the shooter in Orlando doesn’t represent all Muslims,  why does the shooter in Las Vegas represent all gun owners?

When the bullets started flying in Las Vegas none of the police officers took a knee.

SNL’s Michael Che called President Trump a “Cheap Cracker.”  If a conservative comedian referred to President Obama with a racial slur on national TV would they still have a job?

Common Threads in Mass Murders

Oct 7, 2017 — Dr. Robert R. Owens

As I contemplate the horror in Las Vegas I wonder; is it only tragedy that unites us. Or is it a tragedy that we are divided?

I also wonder why an important common thread always seems to be missing from every story examining the reasons for these evil acts?

What is that common thread? Is it a political affiliation? Is it a nationality? Is it a certain type of weapon? No. None of these is the common thread.
