Don’t underestimate the impact of Kanye West

I usually ignore celebrity endorsements on either side, as they can be fickle or even counterproductive (though I do like to see them pop up for Conservatives, given how nearly all are Leftists).  People like James Woods do a good job of articulating their views.

Kanye West’s meeting with Trump was absolutely golden.  The Left is in full attack mode against Kanye now, launching all sorts of racist attacks.  But as they often do, the Left may go too far.  This draws even more attention to people like West, Jim Brown and Candace Owens, who challenge blacks to get off the “plantation” that the Left has created for them.  I love how he calls out Liberals for their manipulation of blacks.

If people see Trump in a non-bombastic way like in the videos it can also modify their perceptions.  When Kanye said he loved Trump and hugged him it made for great TV.

Democrats take the black vote for granted, which is why they now like illegals better than blacks.  The Left has banked on more than 90% of the black vote for decades, and people like Kanye can chip into that – especially if people can see how quickly the Left turns on him.  So the Left will freak out and attack black leaders who give people hope and acknowledge that Trump’s policies are good for blacks.

Are you going to see the Gosnell movie? Please spread the word!

I’m so glad to see they made this.  The trailer looks great.  I haven’t been to a movie in over a year, but I may make an exception for this one.

Initially, the government deliberately ignored the greatest serial killer in American history.  Fortunately, someone finally took him on.  But unfortunately, the media did a choreographed embargo on the trial.  I remember searching MSNBC and the LA Times, among other Leftist sites, and getting zero hits for his name.  Zero.  That is active suppression.

When I would teach pro-life reasoning training to new Care Net Pregnancy Center volunteers I’d ask if they had heard of Kermit Gosnell.  Usually only about 25% had — and this was from a group of very committed pro-lifers!  The media was very effective at hiding it.

Not surprisingly, Facebook is choking ads for the film.  You can only imagine what other suppression Twitter and the rest of Big Tech are engaged in.

Make no mistake: Those Molech-worshiping ghouls love abortion.

Please share the word on this movie!  Even if it just gets people to search on the topic it will be worth it.

The Left’s trick of labeling opponents as fascists is straight out of the KGB playbook

We are used to seeing Antifa — aka AntiF(irst)A(mendment) — reflexively label anyone they disagree with as fascists.  If the topic wasn’t so serious and if Antifa wasn’t so violent you could just laugh them off.  Yeah, we conservatives are such fascists that we want citizens to be armed, we want limited government, less regulations, etc.  Seriously, we were the original anti-fascists.  If we used a fraction of the tactics that Antifa does it would be in the news 24×7.

I just saw this fascinating historical fact in a book I’m reading about the Cold War.  The book was published in 2012, so it predates Antifa by many years.  The author was describing the spread of the secret police (the NKVD / KGB) into Eastern European countries and how they relentlessly went after fascists, or more specifically how they called anyone they didn’t like a fascist as a pretext to imprison or kill them.

But in every country occupied by the Red Army, the definition of “fascist” eventually grew broader, expanding to include not only Nazi collaborators but anybody whom the Soviet occupiers and their local allies disliked. In time, the word “fascist,” in true Orwellian fashion, was eventually used to describe antifascists who also happened to be anticommunists. And every time the definition was expanded, arrests followed.

Some of these “fascists” had been identified in advance . . .

Applebaum, Anne. Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956

So there is more evidence that Antifa and their apologists on the Left are just running the Communist playbook.  They disingenuously call their opponents fascists to deflect attention from their Communism.  And make no mistake: If they had the power of the KGB they’d start arresting and punishing conservatives today.

Are you ready to respond to pro-abortion arguments?

With the impending confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice there is more talk than usual about abortion, and that will only increase from here.  Are you you ready to respond to people graciously when they make bad pro-abortion arguments?

The arguments are varied, but the most common ones are easy to refute.  For example, they love to play on people’s  emotions and pretend that we are hostile to rape victims if we don’t let them kill their children.  But just turn it around on them and ask, “So are you saying that you’d support making all abortions illegal except in the cases of rape?”  I guarantee you that the response will be “no.”  Then you simply say, “Then why are you exploiting rape victims to make your case for unrestricted abortions, and why do you support the Democrats’ policies of increasing abortions with taxpayer funding?”  it is just that easy.  Bonus points for reminding them how Planned Parenthood and other abortionists protect rapists and sex traffickers.

And when you get the inevitable “pro-lifers don’t care about children after they are born argument,” share these points.

This is a video where I teach about pro-life reasoning.  I used to give this content to Care Net Pregnancy Center volunteers.

100% of Senators agree!

Believe it or not, there is true unanimity in our Senate:

  • They all know that Kavanaugh would judge according to what the job description requires.  It is just that half the Senators don’t want someone who will judge according to the Constitution.
  • They all know that the allegations against him are as choreographed as any ballet and a complete sham.  But half of them are so sold out to the unrestricted killing of children up to their first breath that they play along with the evil charade.
  • They all know that the Constitution would never force all states to recognize oxymoronic “same-sex marriage” and all the evils that come from that, but half of them sold out to the God-hating LGBTQX lobby.

Those aren’t exaggerations.

Don’t be like King Hezekiah

Our society is decaying at an increasingly rapid rate.  The concept of “same-sex marriage” is younger than the cell phone, yet look how quickly and firmly it has taken hold in the Leftist culture.  And “transanity” has moved even more quickly, as even middle ground people are too fearful and/or indoctrinated to push back on things as evil and sickening as telling young children they may not really be their genetic gender.

But we Christians shouldn’t fall prey to that level of cowardice.  Sure, if we are older, then these things may not impact us directly.  But if we love our neighbors – which includes our descendants – we need to speak the truth even if it costs us and we need to fight for what is right.

King Hezekiah did a lot of good things, but at the end of his reign in Judah he foolishly showed off the country’s treasures to visitors from Babylon.  Isaiah the prophet chastised Hezekiah and said that eventually it would all be taken away by the Babylonians.  Hezekiah responded in a most selfish manner:

Isaiah 39:8 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.”

May God keep us from being selfish and complacent.

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.
