As you probably know by now, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beat long-time Democrat Joe Crowley in New York’s very liberal 14th Congressional District. Ocasio-Cortez, 28, a former organizer for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign and a onetime staffer for the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, ran on an unalloyed leftist progressive platform, calling for a “political
There are still Never-Trumpers among us. Many of them are Establishment types who liked the RepubliCrats way of doing things — sharing power and money while giving into moral degradation so many of them could justify their own sexual antics. Then there are the principled Never-Trumpers who were aghast that anyone would
The Pope is said to come out defending homosexuality. Supposedly, in a private conversion with Juan Carlos Cruz, the Pope told the main whistleblower in Chile’s clerical sex abuse and cover-up scandal, “Look Juan Carlos, the pope loves you this way. God made you like this and he loves you,”
“And do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is Christ” (Matt. 23:9-10). Democrat primary wins are indicating that the Democrat Party is becoming more transparently socialistic. The
While I was eating lunch on Election Day 2008, I was reading an article written by Michael McVicar titled “‘First Owyhee and Then the World’: The Early Ministry of R. J. Rushdoony” that was published in the November/December 2008 issue of Faith for All of Life, a publication of the Chalcedon Foundation. As
While Millennials claim socialism is the best form of government, when it’s applied to them personally, it shows it’s a bad system.
Socialism has been chosen by millennials as the best form of government.
Like clockwork, when the Republicans voted to make changes to the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, Liberals went to Jesus for help with the hashtag #JesusNeverSaid. For example: “#ThingsJesusNeverSaid ‘You have a pre-existing condition, I can’t cure you.’” When the State can cure people like Jesus did, I’ll
International Workers’ Day is a celebration of laborers and the working classes that is promoted by the international labor movement, socialists, communists or anarchists and occurs every year on May Day, the 1st of May. (Wiki) Today’s anti-Trumpers have chosen this day to protest Donald Trump and I suspect capitalism. Communism and socialism aren’t doing too well. Take a look at
Venezuela is falling apart. People are losing weight because they can’t find enough to eat. There is $10 billion in the treasury. That sounds like a lot of money, but these days $10 billion does not go very far. The nation is on the verge of collapse. No amount of
Many people in America don’t understand how an economy works. Economics is not difficult to understand. It takes PhDs and other “experts” to confuse us. But these guys could not get away with their economic confusion if so many people didn’t want to fall for their false claims that if
Will We Learn the Truth About Obama’s Birth Certificate and College Transcripts in $60 Million Book Deal?
The Obamas are going to be paid $60 million for two books. Let that sink in. For all their talk about the rich getting richer and the rich not paying their fair share and the poor and middle class getting raked over the economic coals, it hasn’t stopped Barack and
My wife and I sat down the Saturday before the Academy Awards to watch the 2015 film Trumbo. Dalton Trumbo is played by Bryan Cranston who did a marvelous job, certainly worthy of the Academy Award nomination he received for Best Actor. It’s loosely based on the Hollywood screenwriter, author,
In a USA Today article, Stephen Prothero writes that “Sanders, a secular Jew, is the most Christian candidate in this race.” Prothero self-identifies as a “scholar of American religion.” All that means is that he has a PhD from a secular institution, but it doesn’t guarantee that he really knows that
Lottery fever hit big a few weeks ago. The last jackpot was more than $1.5 billion. Of course, the government will get its multi-millions. That’s what it’s really all about: people voluntarily giving their money away to the government. Yes, a few people will make millions, but the government will
Not only should Bernie Sanders step down as a presidential candidate, but he should also resign from the Senate. The problem is that it’s not just Sanders who doesn’t know anything about economics. Most Democrats and not a few Republicans don’t know much about economics, and if they do know
