A more upbeat plot twist: Total remission!

 This is an August 2017 follow up to Plot twist: I’ve got cancer and Cancer treatment update: So far, so good.  Thanks for the prayers!

Short version: Total remission! I had my 5th chemo treatment today and will have one more treatment next month as precaution. I’ll probably just have annual scans after that. Thanks for all the love, prayers and support and thank-you to Jesus for countless answered prayers.

It is interesting to rewind the tape at this point and ensure we’ve learned all we can from this and celebrated all the seemingly countless blessings God brought our way.  I had cancer, but I also had Jesus — and still do — and that made all the difference.

Democrat Candidates Pander to LGBT Militants

You would think they were running for election in Sodom or Gomorrah.


Four Foundational Reasons not to be a Roman Catholic — Well done.  I thought the third one highlighted just how superstitious Catholics tend to be.

Third, Roman Catholicism has highly encouraged the use of the Rosary. This is like a lucky charm. Its mere presence can signify election. One 15th Century writer claimed the following, ” I do not know,” De la Roche, missionary to France says, “nor do I see clearly, how it can be that a devotion which seems so small can be the infallible sign of eternal salvation and how its absence can be the sign of God’s eternal displeasure; nevertheless, nothing could possibly be more true [sic].” The absence of prayer with the rosary is evidence of God’s displeasure. Nonsense. The rosary is a spiritual rabbit’s foot. It conveys no powers and provides no blessings. It is a sign of immaturity when simple folks hang on to these material tokens, much like the papers of Indulgence, by which the Pope could shave off millions of years in Purgatory. Simple faith it may appear to be, but it is nothing more than wishful thinking. Praying the Rosary is similar to transcendental meditation with its repetitive chants or thoughts. In this way of spiritualism, the rosary is considered a sure means to draw one closer to God. Jesus spoke of those who prayed in such a repetitive manner, thinking that they would score spiritual points of divine favor. Jesus dispelled that myth. The rosary does not please the deity. Neither will statues, candles, vigils, tears, Priests, Bishops, Cardinals, and Popes. Trinkets like prayer cards, beads, crucifixes, chains and medallions with saints engraved, as well as the rosary itself, could well be a sign of God’s great displeasure as they are drawing attention away from Jesus Christ, where His life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and intercession is the only hope for sinners.


If Feminist Laurie Penny Was Serious About Stopping Rape, She Would Protest Outside Prisons — Radical feminists see rape everywhere, except where it is most prevalent.


Court blocks Ohio law banning abortions based on Down syndrome — Yeah, because the writers of the Constitution definitely wanted you to be able to kill your children for any reason up their first breath.  It is all throughout the Federalist Papers.

Circuit Judge Bernice Bouie Donald wrote in a 2–1 decision that the injunction served the public interest by ensuring “access to constitutionally protected health care services.”


Transgender person claims “violence” after reporter accidentally mispronounces name at CNN town hall — What ridiculous snowflakes they are.  Even “misgendering” (translation: stating the real gender) isn’t violent, but mispronouncing a name isn’t something that even these people should be complaining about.  I’ve known people named “Shea” and they always pronounced it as the reporter initially did.


Sexually Transmitted Diseases Explode in California — Brought to you by the Left — including the “Christian” Left.


The Hezekiah Option: a strategy for Christians in a post-Christian nation — I memorized Isaiah 39:8 because it is a great reminder not to just sit back and enjoy our cushy existence here (Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “The word of the Lord that you have spoken is good.” For he thought, “There will be peace and security in my days.”).  It is going to get a lot worse for real Christians, so we should fight to help our children and grandchildren.  HT: Danny

We don’t need any more King Hezekiahs. What we need is just one King Josiah. All of us need to confess that we are Hezekiah. We hate conflict. We steer clear of exercising authority. We don’t want to have to quote Scripture knowing the sophisticated ones will diss us for “prooftexting.” We weep and wail when women and girls mock us on FB. We act as if we don’t see Hezekiah’s cowardice, Jezebel’s rebellions, Simon’s simony, John Mark’s abandonment of the Apostle Paul, and all the other shameful things that have taken root and are growing in our churches.

Shame on us for being ashamed of Jesus and His words. Let us pray that God, the Father Almighty, will send a Josiah among us who will tear down our high places and lead us to worship the Only True God Who is high and lifted up, and Whose train fills the temple.


Chris Cuomo Mocks Female Pronouns at Gay Rights Town Hall — The guy finally does something normal (gently mocking the silliness of each Leftist candidate clarifying their gender and preferred pronouns) and then apologizes for it.  Very Fredo-like.


O’Rourke calls for stripping tax-exempt status from churches who oppose same-sex marriage — Glad to see O’Rourke admitting what all those Leftists will do when given power.  Who cares about freedom of religion anyway?  Sadly, the “Christian” Left will want to support him more because they like anything that reduces competition from real churches.

And note how he wants your guns and then your religion.  Will  this make the Trump-hating “conservatives” re-think what will happen if Trump isn’t re-elected? 


CNN invites 9-year-old girl who identifies as transgender boy to ask question at town hall — Wicked Leftists exploit mentally ill children to further their aims.  The simple answer would be, “Of course I oppose bullying for any reason, but if schools don’t prevent bullying of all kinds, that’s a problem.  Work it at your local level.  It isn’t a Federal issue.  Better yet, ask your Mom to home school you!  Next question?”  Bonus points for saying to the mother, “It is child abuse to affirm your child in this wildly destructive, God-mocking lifestyle.”


Apple removes app used by Hong Kong protesters — Apple, the NBA and so many others bow down to China, which will torture and kill their citizens for the mildest of criticisms (and that’s just for starters).  Tariffs can cause economic problems for oneself, but in this case I think raising them would be a shrewd move to put a deadly enemy in its place.

Biden Accuses Americans of Ignorance, Warns of Anti-Gay ‘Terrorist Groups

In 1982, the CDC reported that that the “median number of lifetime male sexual partners” for gay men diagnosed with AIDS was 1,160. In other words, a majority of the first men diagnosed with this sexually transmitted disease had more than one thousand partners. The man known as “Patient Zero” of the AIDS epidemic, Gaetan Dugas, estimated that he had sex with 2,500 men from 1972 to 1982, i.e., 250 different partners every year for 10 consecutive years. We may stipulate that Dugas was an extreme example, but his behavior was the tip of a very large iceberg of gay promiscuity during the Disco Era. But oh, you’re just an ignorant bigot if you disapprove of such behavior.


From the Spectator Archives: Appeasing China Is Old Hat for Prestigious U.S. Institutions

This past week we’ve seen the lengths to which the Houston Rockets and the National Basketball Association will go to kowtow to the totalitarians calling the shots in still-communist China. Alas, such craven institutional cowardice is nothing new in the Land of the Free, as we recall what was done to Steven Mosher more than 30 years ago for shedding light on China’s brutally enforced one-child policy. For his heroism, Stanford University, under pressure from China, expelled him from its doctoral program.

Joss Whedon Pretended To Be A Male Feminist While Cheating On His Wife With Young Actresses — The story is a couple years old but worth a reminder.  Never trust male feminists.

Joss Whedon’s adultery is yet another example of the duplicitous and narcissistic nature of male feminists. Contrary to the fake news media’s claims that neomasculine and anti-feminist men are predatory and misogynistic, it is almost always male feminists such as Whedon who turn out to be the biggest abusers and users of women. Any man who identifies as a feminist is a liar who should be shunned and avoided by both men and women.

Joss Whedon’s behavior towards the opposite sex is the norm and not the exception when it comes to male feminists. Much in the same way that Jesus warned us against listening to “hypocrites” who loudly and piously proclaimed their faith as a compensation mechanism, men who can’t shut up about “mansplaining” and “equal rights” are doing so in order to hide their own demons. Over the past decade, prominent male feminists have been repeatedly unmasked as rapists, abusers, and cheaters, behavior far worse than the “sexist” men they attack.


A Nobel for looking for “dem aliens” — Yawn. If there are other life forms in the universe, then we know who put them there (Jesus). He didn’t bother to mention it in the Bible, so I wouldn’t worry about it.

Even if they exist, what makes anyone really think they’ll be benevolent and/or able to communicate with us and/or offer us anything of value?

That said, I’m glad for any scientific discoveries that help us understand how Jesus created the universe.

All this alien talk always reminds me of this:

Lisa Simpson: Dad, according to Junior Skeptic Magazine, the chances are a 175 million-to-one of another form of life actually coming in contact with ours.

Homer: So?

Lisa: It’s just the people who claim they’ve seen aliens are always pathetic lowlifes with boring jobs . . . oh . . . and you, Dad.


Huh? Gregg Popovich praises NBA Commissioner’s ‘courageous’ stance on China — Popovich is just another hypocritical, disingenuous coward who uses the NBA’s disgusting failure to repeatedly hate on Trump.  He knows that people in China would be tortured and killed for criticizing their government, but he is so weak that he can’t even criticize China when he doesn’t live there – but he gladly criticizes Trump in a shameless non sequitur.

“Cut it out NBA, Adam Silver, Steve Kerr. You’re not social justice activists. You’re business people because when China tells you to shut the hell up, everybody shuts the hell up.”

Sasse, Cruz, AOC, others in Congress send bipartisan letter to NBA: Stop kissing China’s ass and suspend your operations there for now — Congrats, NBA.  You usually can’t get those politicians to agree on what day of the week it is.

But here’s your consolation prize: Every time one of these holier-than-thou A-holes opens his mouth about domestic politics going forward, you get to remind him that he wouldn’t say a word if his bottom line was at stake. We know it for a fact now. We have the receipts, thanks to Daryl Morey.

University Bans White Students From Attending Anti-Racism Meeting

Luke: Evangelist to the Rich – Interesting post.  I’d never analyzed it that way.

So what have we seen in Luke’s Gospel? We’ve seen that the rich face unique dangers. They can be callous toward others, haughty, proud, cheats, swindlers, wrongly confident in themselves, and foolishly trusting in their wealth. If that is your life now, Luke says, you are in for a rude awakening at the end of the age, because everything will be turned upside down. The humble poor will be lifted up, and the arrogant rich will be cast down.

On the other hand, we see how the rich can be faithful with their wealth. They support Jesus and his ministry. They stand up for what is right. They use their money wisely for spiritual gain. The righteous rich in Luke are still rich, but they are also generous, repentant of any wrongs, and faithful to the cause of Christ.

In the book of Acts, just as in Luke, we see both kinds of examples. We see rich people at their worst, and we see how rich people can inherit the kingdom of God and live out its values.

. . .

So how can the rich enter the kingdom of heaven? What does it look like for rich Christians to “get it”? Importantly, “getting it” doesn’t mean to feel constant shame for being rich. It doesn’t mean trading places with the poor. And it doesn’t mean prophetic denunciations of material goods or income disparity.

But it does mean something. A lot, actually. According to Luke-Acts, to be a rich Christian who “gets it” means (at least) these seven things.

  1. We believe. Christ is our everything, our all in all. We cannot serve two masters.
  2. We repent. We turn from any cheating, swindling, or lying, and we make amends with those we have mistreated.
  3. We put Jesus before profit.
  4. We are generous. We give freely to help the poor and to further the cause of the gospel.
  5. We are good stewards. We don’t try to be manipulate our way to God by lying, putting on a show, or trying to accrue power with our wealth. We are always shrewd but never power-hungry.
  6. We do not trust in our money. There is no real security in dollars and cents. The righteous rich do not expect their earthly riches to last. They live for the heavenly riches that do.
  7. We demonstrate humility. We consider everything we have to be a gift from God. We are meek before others and meek before God.

IG Stonewalled Congress On Backdated Whistleblower Rule Changes — The Democrats are so ham-fisted with this.  They aren’t even trying any longer, because they know the media will cover for them and not let voters know these simple truths.

As The Federalist reported and the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) confirmed, the spy watchdog secretly changed its whistleblower forms and internal rules in September to eliminate a requirement that whistleblowers provide first-hand evidence to support any allegations of wrongdoing. In a press release last week, the ICIG confessed that it changed its rules in response to an anti-Trump complaint filed on August 12. That complaint, which was declassified and released by President Donald Trump in September, was based entirely on second-hand information, much of which was shown to be false following the declassification and release of a telephone conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. . . .

The embattled ICIG also admitted on Friday that the anti-Trump complainant lied on his whistleblower complaint form by concealing the complainant’s previous secret interactions with House Democratic staff prior to submitting the complaint. Atkinson never even bothered investigating potential coordination between the complainant, whom DOJ said showed evidence of partisan political bias, and House Democrats prior to the filing of the anti-Trump complaint.


British Tribunal Declares Christianity “Incompatible With Human Dignity” — That escalated quickly.

Why the Red Letter Christian Movement Is Not Growing — That’s good news that this “Christian” Leftist movement isn’t growing. And it was a great admission from wolf Tony Campolo that the movement is not well versed in scripture!

“Red letter Christians” tip their hands at their foundational error. Jesus is God and is in agreement with all of scripture. He quoted the Old Testament extensively, and referred to its most controversial elements without apology: Sodom & Gomorrah, Adam and Eve, Noah, Jonah, etc.  He affirmed the Old Testament and authorized the New Testament.

And Jesus didn’t hand-write the Gospels. They authors had some eyewitness accounts and some reliable second-hand accounts, just like the epistles. And all were inspired by God.

The “red letter” Christians are nearly always false teachers who pretend that the only words of the Bible that really matter are direct quotes of Jesus (i.e., the words that are printed in red in some Bibles). Their logic fails on many levels, and they can’t even get their own pet verses right.

If they were the least bit consistent they’d agree with Jesus’ “red letters” that say you should live on all the letters. Matthew 4:4 But he answered, “It is written, “ ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ”

The red letters say to live on all the letters. Why don’t they obey that simple teaching?

The “red letters” crowd is full of nonsensical hypocrites.

Many Transsexuals Want to Detransition — Of course they do.  They had serious problems that the ignorant, cowardly and malicious Left told them would be solved with chemicals and surgery.   The mainstream media will try to hide this, but hopefully people will share it on social media.

“Detransitioning” is when a transsexual drops the pretense of being a member of the opposite sex. If hormones and surgery have been employed, going back to a normal appearance is easier said than done.

“I’m in communication with 19 and 20-year-olds who have had full gender reassignment surgery who wish they hadn’t, and their dysphoria hasn’t been relieved, they don’t feel better for it,” she says.

Too bad they can’t sue the mainstream media for egging them on to mutilate and deform themselves, tricking them into believing that screwing themselves up physically would make them less screwed up psychiatrically.

Hidden toll of starved sex husbands— Interesting article from a couple years back.  Even this secular researcher gets it – though I don’t agree with the “choreplay” solution where guys have to do work to get the women to have sex.  Uh, isn’t there a longstanding term for transactions where you exchange sex for goods or services?  Yes, I see how helping your wives can give them more energy and time, but making it a quid pro quo is gross.

But the broader point applies: Women — and especially Christian women — who use sex as a weapon and deliberately withhold affection are destroying their own families.  As I used to tell a sex-starved friend (his Christian wife had sex with him about once a year, and then only when intoxicated), it was still a sin if he cheated but that she was a fool to behave that way.  She thought their marriage was great.  That is, until she found out that he had an entirely predictable emotional affair.  They are now divorced, with all the carnage that comes with it.  He’s the pariah and she probably “forgets” to tell people how she withheld affection. So sad.

If only people would obey 1 Cor. 7 and not withhold their bodies from each other except under limited conditions.  So many marriages would be vastly improved.  And if only pastors had the guts to tell their female-dominated membership those truths! 

Academic who says wives who deprive husbands of sex are wrecking society. Her solution? Reward chaps for doing the washing up! The consequences of men being sex-starved by their wives are deeply worrying . . . Sexless or low-sex marriages are far more common than many realise . . .  A survey found a fifth of older women had been celibate for more than a year.

Don’t marry a feminist, son, because she has an ax to grind, and someday you’ll become her target.

In fairness, male Democrats are creeps

It turns out that Republicans are having sex more frequently than Democrats, a study published Monday revealed.

“This finding left me curious about how specific components of relational bliss might be affected by political leanings. The answer is surprising: Republicans have more sex than Democrats and cheat less on their spouses. Political independents have sex even more often than Republicans but cheat at the same rate Democrats do,” Wolfinger, a University of Utah professor, explained in the Institute for Family Studies report.


Alpha Game: Sex-blind hiring favors men — But but but privilege!!

“We anticipated this would have a positive impact on diversity — making it more likely that female candidates and those from ethnic minorities are selected for the shortlist,” said Professor Michael Hiscox, a Harvard academic. “We found the opposite, that de-identifying candidates reduced the likelihood of women being selected for the shortlist.”

So as anyone in the real world knows, it is less likely, not more likely these days that a man will get hired if his gender is known. It’s not a surprise. Or, at least, it shouldn’t be.

Women get hired for a variety of reasons. Men only get hired if they are objectively superior to every possible woman and minority available.

Absolutely, Let’s Have An Impeachment Trial | The American Spectator — Bring it!  Short version: A trial would mean getting all the Democrats’ illegal and treasonous actions out in the open, with massive media coverage.

3. However, during the trial, and this is what no one is thinking about right now, the President’s attorneys will have the right to subpoena and question ANYONE THEY WANT.. That is different than the special counsel investigation, which was very one-sided. So, during the impeachment trial, we will be hearing testimony from James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Donna Brazile, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, and a whole host of other participants in this whole sordid affair and the ensuing cover up activities. A lot of dirt will be dug up; a lot of truth will be unveiled. Finger pointing will occur. Deals will start being made, and suddenly, a lot of democrats will start being charged and going to prison.All this, because, remember, the President’s team will now, for the first time, have the RIGHT to question all of these people under oath — and they will turn on each other. That is already starting.

Most Americans believe that being impeached results in removal from office. They don’t understand that phase 2 is a trial in and by the Senate, where he has zero chance of conviction. Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans; they will determine what testimony is allowed — and **everything** will be allowed, including: DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign to fix the election in favor of Hillary, the creation of the Trump dossier, the cover up and destruction of emails that very likely included incriminating information. They will incriminate each other for lying to the FISA court, for spying and wiretapping the Trump campaign, and for colluding with foreign political actors, especially George Soros. After the Senate declines to convict the President, we will have an election, and Trump will win. It will be a backlash against democrat petulance, temper tantrums, hypocrisy and dishonesty. Even minorities will vote for Trump, because, for the first time, they will see that democrats have spent 2+ years focused on maintaining their own power, and not doing anything at all about black murders in Chicago, homelessness, opioids, and other important issues that are actually killing people. And, we will spend the following four years listening to politicians and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged. So let’s move on to impeachment.


‘Sexually Explicit Text Messages’ — It is sad that the misguided family has turned this into a pro-gay thing. They are missing the core problem, namely foolish behavior in life and on social media.

Six years ago, when former Rep. Anthony Weiner was caught for the second time in a “sexting” scandal, I read my teenage son the Riot Act. “Never put anything in a text message you wouldn’t want to see on the front page of the New York Times!” I shouted at my son, then only 14.

As parents, we have a responsibility to warn our children about the dangers of communication technology, and I’m happy to say that so far — knock on wood — none of my kids have been implicated in any such scandals. You simply can’t be too careful about these things, when people are losing their jobs over social-media posts from years ago.

“Cancel culture” isn’t the only danger, however. A tragic story from Tennessee highlights the potential danger of text-messaging: A Tennessee teenager took his own life after being outed as bisexual by classmates who bullied him, according to his family.


Election Blacklist: YouTube Buries Viral Video of Hillary Clinton Lying For 13 Minutes Straight — Social media continues to manipulate our elections.  Even searching for the titles of certain videos won’t bring them up in search lists.

By the way, Hillary is definitely going to run again.  Pass the popcorn.

We look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
