The Russians Didn’t Do It

From the administration that “lied to the ‘stupid’ American people to get it (Obamacare) passed,” we now have this whopper: “The dog ate my homework” … I mean, “The Russians hacked our election.” It is now a fact the Russians did it. How do we know this? Because the liars said so! I’m going to ask you to use your common sense. If your nine-year-old consistently lies to you, would you believe his next story? There comes a point when you’d have to say, “Shame on me!” (Remember the wisdom: “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice,...

Trust Your Election Process

Why is there a Democrat feeding fury over the supposed hacking of the Russians into Hillary Clinton’s campaign strategies by the Democratic National Committee? In a an interview by a reporter from ABC News with former Sectary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger who stated that hacking by Russia of the US is old news and is the fact that we hack them also. Dr. Kissinger also said that most technically adept countries are hacking or are trying to hack other countries constantly.

Betsy DeVos: Opening the Hearts and Minds of America

President Elect, Donald Trump’s new Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos is the best pick in the history of the Department of Education since its inception in this veteran teacher’s opinion.  With her school choice prescription, she is just the medicine that a failing educational system needs to restore it to health.  Her long time support of the Charter school movement is one key reform element, but the one that will be transformational will be vouchers or tax credits for any private school a parent decides to send their child to. The Public school monopoly headed by the NEA is the...

The Christian Subtext to “Secular” Christmas Film Classics

That there is some sense in which Christmas can be said to have become “secularized” over the years is undoubtedly true.  Nevertheless, this judgment may be overwrought. Perhaps Christ is more present in “secularized” expressions of Christmas than either Christian or non-Christian is willing to acknowledge. This is borne out by close examination of such “secular” Christmas cinematic classics as A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Miracle on 34th Street. None explicitly mentions Christ, but neither is it a coincidence that of the 365 days and multiple holidays from which Dickens could have chosen to make the...

5 Things I Learned From A Gay Man: The Enemy Is NOT Who You Think It Is

Last week my phone buzzed at about eight o’clock in the morning. Sleepily, I thought to myself,  “Oh,  @realDonaldTrump,  I’ll read your tweet right after I hit the snooze button just one more time… give me 5 more minutes, and I’ll be ready for what you have to say!” But I resisted the urge and checked my phone. I’m glad I did.  Someone had tagged me with an article that Milo Yiannopoulos, a self proclaimed flaming gay (my words) British journalist, public speaker, and editor for Breitbart News Network was heading to Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana. Typically this is not something that...
