How The Left Uses History To Undermine A Republic

Image
By now, most people have heard the liberals comparing President Trump to Adolf Hitler. One can assume this is due to Trump's immigration reform policies, his stance on Muslims and Muslim refugees, his ongoing conflicts with the mainstream media and print journalism, and his campaign slogan of "Make America Great Again". The more interesting analysis is why they would exactly do this. There are a couple reasons one can conclude for this. One reason would be they are not well-versed in German history and have just a cursory knowledge of NAZI Germany and thus don't honestly know the facts and truth of history. A second reason may be that they do have a full-fledged knowledge of the NAZI's and are just playing fast and loose with the truth and facts in order to paint a false narrative in the minds of Americans. With the dumbing down of America over the last several years through our failing education system, it is quite plausible that just incurring this image of Hi…

The Silence Of The Lambs

Image
Living in the Bible Belt, one would think that a gubernatorial candidate in Tennessee wanting to hold a Homeland Security Summit at a Christian university with a primary focus on Islamic terrorism wouldn't be very controversial. But in this current world in which we live, you would be wrong. The gubernatorial candidate is Mae Beavers, a conservative Republican, and the Christian university is Trevecca Nazarene University. The summit was scheduled to take place on January 25th on the campus of Trevecca featuring three guest lecturers who specialize in Islamic studies and terrorism. The speakers were Dr. Bill Warner, Cathy Hinners, and John Guandolo. So why would this public summit be abruptly cancelled after tickets had already been sold?

Trevecca Nazarene University released this statement in regards to the cancellation of the event:

"Throughout our history, Trevecca has consistently offered political candidates of both parties the opportunity to use our campus for events. W…

Have We Forgotten That First Christmas?

Image
Jay Leno had a segment on The Tonight Show several years ago when he was the host. The segment was called "Jaywalking" and he would ask everyday Americans some basic questions and the responses were rather astounding at times. It made for a fun comedy bit and also a reality check on how our republic had slipped to new lows in common sense and intelligence on numerous topics. One wonders if you asked everyday Americans about that first Christmas what kind of replies you would receive. My guess is it would be highly entertaining and enlightening no doubt. A recent Pew Research Center poll found 46% of Americans say they celebrate Christmas as primarily a religious (rather than cultural) holiday.  That is down from 51% just four years ago. Even more interesting, 56% of American adults say religious aspects of Christmas are emphasized less in American society today than in the past, though relatively few are bothered by this trend.

Just for a refresher, Santa Claus wasn't a…

Who Was The Real Winner In Alabama?

Image
Yes, Democrat Doug Jones defeated Judge Roy Moore in the special election this past week in Alabama. One would assume that Jones and the Democratic Party were the big winners and that President Trump and Judge Moore were the big losers. If you listened to the mainstream media and the political elites that would be the general consensus. But that is not the best analysis. No, the real winner in Alabama was the weaponizing of allegations to tar and feather an innocent man. There is a difference between allegations and evidence. There were numerous allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct thrown at Judge Moore but little signs of any real solid evidence. Unlike in a court of law, in the High Court of Public Opinion you are considered guilty until proven innocent. That becomes a far more difficult threshold for an accused person to overcome when the media runs out a plethora of accusers and pundits to infer you are guilty as charged. Yes, in this court, jumping to conclusions is w…

Will This Shot Across The Bow Reverberate Throughout Washington?

Image
It was a bad day if you were Sen. Mitch McConnell and the establishment Republicans in Washington. The voters in Alabama voted overwhelmingly for Judge Roy Moore over Trump-backed Luther Strange. Strange was appointed to fill the vacant United States Senate seat previously held by Jeff Sessions when Sessions was offered the position of United States Attorney General. McConnell and the establishment Republicans poured boatloads of money into Alabama to get Strange back to Washington only to flush it all down the toilet. The conservative voters of Alabama soundly rejected business as usual and took a flyer on Judge Moore to shake things up.


Even worse news, to add insult to injury, earlier in the day Sen. Bob Corker decided he would not seek another term as the junior Senator from Tennessee. Whether he saw the writing on the wall for 2018 and the midterms or whether he just had enough of the job and the headaches, he leaves an opening for a real conservative statesman to fill his seat.…

Will Goodell's Ideology Trump Sound Business?

Image
The NFL has been the goose that keeps laying the golden eggs for many years now. It surpassed baseball long ago as the premier sport and America's favorite pastime. With the Colin Kaepernick story continuing to make news and several players and teams kneeling or refusing to honor the United States flag and national anthem, the NFL is finding itself in murky waters. Commissioner Goodell hasn't helped matters and by standing with the players and calling out President Trump he has aided in alienating the fans even more. Goodell is a progressive and thus that ideology overrides what is best for business and the fans.

When ideology trumps business, more often than not it becomes the death knell for that business. Very rarely do businesses overcome that. Chick-fil-A was an exception to this back in 2012 when they got into the same-sex marriage debate. The progressive movement targeted Chick-fil-A and tried to shut them down but were surprised to find the conservatives and the silen…

Why Do Progressives Oppose Choice?

Image
A good friend of mine sent me a link to a piece the other day and it made me think. In the piece it mentioned school choice. I began to think about choice in a variety of major issues and it became clear to me that progressives oppose choice in everything except in the case of abortion. From school choice and vouchers, healthcare, guns and the right to carry, and even in everyday life and what a person eats and drinks, the progressive crowd is against choice. I wondered why that is. I then thought further and believe it's because choice is empowering. Progressives believe in controlling people from the cradle to the grave, if they allow your mother to keep you and give birth to you in the first place. So let's look at a few major issues and highlight this a bit more.


The Founding Fathers were very clear in writing the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. "The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." It is straightforward. No…

Life, Liberty, And The Pursuit Of Happiness

Image
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Three very unique words intricately woven into The Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson didn't just pull these words out of thin air. He had a distinct purpose in choosing these particular words. It is important to note that these "unalienable rights" are not given to us by government but are endowed by God, our Creator. Our republic was established by our founding fathers to allow each individual to live life in freedom and pursue happiness in whatever ways they saw fit. Unfortunately, over time, we have seen these particular unalienable rights infringed upon more and more by a growing government interference in our lives. There is a certain segment of our republic who don't believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. They believe in death, tyranny, and the pursuit of misery. Instead of freedom and liberty they aim for chaos, anarchy, fascism, socialism, and communism. Make no mistake, there is an id…
