Joaquin Castro Paints Target on Trump Donors — If any Dems get in office they will do far worse than this.  Who could possibly trust them?

If the aptly named Castros abuse power this way now, imagine what they would do from the White House.


Mass Shootings in Gun-Free Zones — With readily available facts like these you know that anyone trying to “solve” the  problem by taking your guns away is ignorant and/or malicious.  Probably malicious.  The first thing they would do if they really wanted to reduce shootings would be to get rid of “gun-free” zones and have more armed guards at schools and such.

According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, between 1950 and 2018 97.8 percent of all mass public shootings occurred in gun-free zones. Similarly, in the 20 states that allow teachers to be armed, there have been no school shootings (as well as no accidents or injuries caused by firearms possessed by teachers).

Because the state can no longer protect us from crime, it wants to take away from us the means of protecting ourselves. This is the logic of gun control. - Joseph Sobran


2019 Data Shows 51% of Mass Shooters Were Black, Only 29% Were White — Things the media will hide from you.


When my Gillette razors are out (I stocked up just before their “Get Woke, Go Broke” men-bashing starting) I’ll be switching to Harry’s.  Be sure to join Rakuten (former eBates) before you shop at Harry’s or other mainstream places online.  As of now they have a 12.5% discount.


Democratic Soycialists of America — Bad news: They want to destroy capitalism.  Good news: They are as fragile as can be — triggered by clapping, pronouns, etc.  They were literally triggered by murmuring, the use of the word “guys,” etc.  Democrats should definitely keep pandering to them.


Politico: Democrats are eating Obama legacy like Hannibal Lecter — So Dems finally agree with us that Obama was bad?  Hey, there’s that unity everyone is seeking!


CNN & AP Finally Admit the Dayton Mass Shooter Was a Left-Wing Extremist — It took conservative media 48 minutes to report that, but the Leftist media took 48 hours.  They know most people will not re-calibrate after that long and will continue to blame Trump.


Messianic Prophecies Fulfilled in Mark 15


Far-Left Protesters Descend on Mitch McConnell’s Home, Threaten to “Stab the Motherf**ker in the Heart” — And yes, it is always important to remember that these are the people who want to take your guns.  You can trust them.

Then there is this, which Twitter — notoriously thin-skinned with anything remotely conservative — actually allowed: Reza Aslan Calls For “Eradication” of Kellyanne Conway and Trump Supporters.


All those Antifa and Socialist wannabes should read The Gulag Archipelago.  And it isn’t just about Communism.  It also applies to the lies of the “trans” and other perverted movements where obvious lies are being told and the truth-tellers are being crushed.

Of course he could select just certain people to show, but he actually showed when they were right as well.  And we know that the average Leftist will assume those quotes are from Trump when Leftists say all sorts of racist things.


Classic and hilarious.  These Leftists actually had a sense of humor and could mock other Leftists.  But even though this came out a few years back they probably wouldn’t do it again. The “trans” lobby would destroy them.


Renewable Energy Is a Scam — Yep.

Nuclear is the safest and most environmentally friendly form of energy, but try telling that to a moonbat who saw The China Syndrome. In any case, renewable energy is not about safety or the environment; it is about virtue signaling, money laundering, and asserting control over the energy sector. The issue is never the issue.



Five Good Reasons Why Nationalism is Christian — Good overview.  They mean that Nationalism is more in line with Christianity than Globalism.  Lots of squishy evangelicals — and of course the “Christian” Left — push for Globalism by acting like we are worshiping the nation.  Just another lie to advance their agenda.

First, a few definitions are in order. Nationalism is a term denoting belief that the nation-state political unit, or body-politic, is an essential component in the preservation of civil liberties and individual rights. The opposite of Nationalism is Globalism, a belief that nation-states should be either non-existent or be subordinate to global and/or regional governments and international bodies. Those holding to Nationalism are most concerned with civil liberties, and those holding to Globalism are most concerned with what they call ‘human flourishing.’Historically, since the time of the Reformation – as the West was dividing into nation-states independent of the Roman Church and the concept of religious freedom and individual rights were being formulated by thinkers like John Locke – Western Civilization has endorsed Nationalism over the utilitarian ideas that would come to be known as Globalism. During this period of time, ideas were formulated that asserted a nation-state’s main purpose as supporting the rights and interests of its Peoples.A nation-state is an individual body-politic that maintains sovereign geographical borders, a common culture, and common language. Without these three things, there is no independent or unique nation-state that can exist. In this sense, nation-state refers to body-politics and not ethnic, tribal, or religious groups.

Sloots: “Christianity means never having to say I’m sorry.”

Several readers have asked for a post on the recent season of the reality show Bachelorette. I don’t follow the show, but according to the news accounts Christian bachelorette Hannah B is outraged at being slut shamed by fellow Christian Luke Parker. The Christian Post characterizes Luke as “polarizing” for suggesting that Christian sexual morality matters.




Federal judge to NY: Don’t turn over Trump’s state tax returns to Congress — for now — The tax return obsession is petty and stupid even by the Left’s standards. It will turn out that the rich guy paid his taxes, and no independents or conservatives will care. And he probably donated more to charity than these “generous” Dems did.  But the Left will have lowered the bar for themselves as well.

Consider that drinking straws are illegal, but syringes explicitly intended for the injection of heroin are provided at taxpayer expense by the government, and you will soon understand why San Francisco has a homelessness problem.

Giving power to the deviants — It is amazing how much society has given in to the “trans” lobby, and how quicly.

We do not need courtesy, reason and compassion to have a debate about the moral turpitude that is transsexuals. More to the point, by attempting to frame the discourse in such a manner this plays into the hands of the trannie activists. If you take them seriously then they must by default have serious arguments. But their arguments are not just frivolous; they are insane.


This is great.  Even many preachers I like get tithing wrong, but I think MacArthur nails it.


“Ooh, you can smell the rats” — Democrat hypocrites lining up to attack Trump, but forgetting that national and local leaders and media, Animal Planet, PBS, etc. have made the same points about Baltimore (but of course only Trump is the racist).  And of course the Left is attacking the minority citizens who agree with Trump.  And what irony of the Left assuming that pointing out facts about rats and trash must have meant they were associated with black people!


14 Facts the ‘Women in Tech’ Movement Doesn’t Want You to Know

14. The Number One Reason Women Don’t Work In Tech Is: Other Women — Most women are not highly competitive. The ones who are terrify the timid sorts, aren’t looking for a sisterhood and, like their male counterparts, compete for power, resources, and prestige.While women who got by with their looks will often embrace feminism when they lose those advantages and have to survive on merit, the women who have been talented all along don’t have time for your nonsense, and are going to tell you so. And you are going to be triggered.Women who can in tech don’t need to get by on their gender, and they are often the first people to push social climbers and weak performers out so they don’t have to be judged by them. (That’s why women have a reputation for backstabbing at work: it’s the hard asses kicking out the dead wood.) So while they may sign your feminist e-petition or read your Tumblr post for a quiet life or for their own professional advantage, just watch what happens when you’re competing for a promotion. You’ll learn that sisterhood ends where Christmas bonuses begin.In short? Other broads don’t have your back. Leave the coalition-building to politicians and focus on your own career, because the only people showing up to women in tech meetups and pounding the hashtag are losers, burn-outs and the terminally mediocre.


The Devil You Know | The Cripplegate — Excellent article and reminder.

1 Peter 5:9 Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.

Contrary to popular teachings on resisting the devil which include exorcism and rebuking – which we are never told to do in Scripture – Peter tells us to resist him by standing firm in the faith. This is not as flashy as exorcism – but it is the only command we have to deal with the temptations of Satan. Whatever Satan brings us – sickness, fear, persecution and temptation – we trust God, we trust his word and we don’t waiver. Remember how Jesus prayed for Peter – “I have prayed that your faith may not fail.” Luke 22:32

Breaking: Joshua Harris Announces He is Not A Christian — Denounces purity culture.  Announces divorce.  Goes pro-LGBTQX. Says he’s not a Christian.  This dude has been busy.  But I give him props for admitting he’s not a believer.  If only more “Christian” Leftists were as honest! (And of course, he was recently published in Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis’ Sojourners magazine.  I’m sure Harris is quite the SJW).

More: Why Joshua Harris’ Apostasy is Good for Purity Culture — This really is good news.  He’s just another non-Christian mocking biblical sexual ethics.  How progressive and how surprising!

If Rachel Held Evans weren’t already in hell, she’d be squealing in delight instead of torment. Her good friend, Nadia Bolz-Weber, couldn’t be more excited about Harris’ departure from Christian holiness. From far-stretching corners of “evangelicalism,” countless thousands spiked the football for the news that purity had failed Joshua Harris. After much ado about nothing, the Prince of the Purity Movement was divorcing his wife. It was all for naught, is the narrative.Those who have a hatred for Biblical courtship, physical boundaries and personal chastity applauded Harris’ absconding from the movement, just as they applauded his divorce like happy little demons.

Purity Culture, they told us, was dead.

THE SILVER LINING Only a few days later, Harris denounced Christ altogether. The real threat to Purity Culture was extinguished the moment that Harris made his denunciation of Jesus public. You see, the real and present danger of Harris’ turn on purity would be if he continued the charade of being a faithful Christ-follower while denouncing a godly sexual ethic. What would have truly hurt the Purity Movement would be an established Christian figure claiming that you can both believe in Jesus and have sub-par sexual standards. What would have been downright catastrophic is if a major leader in the movement, like Harris, had claimed you could be both a Christian and denounce personal holiness.


Unedited Ilhan Omar Video Is Even Worse

“But I mean, I think, like I said, the focus of our policies should be about keeping Americans safe, keeping us domestically safe, and where we actually find a solution is looking at our foreign policy. Looking at how we are engaging with these the members of these communities and the kind of rhetoric that is being spewed out of leaders within our city halls, within our state capitals, and within our nation’s capital.”

In other words, if you don’t like Muslim violence, then comply with Muslim demands regarding foreign policy and don’t say anything Muslims don’t want to hear.


Robert Mueller Not ‘Being There’ — I am so glad I ignored all the Russia nonsense the last couple years.  But if there is any justice we would spend the next two years reminding people what a farce this was and how the Leftist media and politicians abused our system out of spite while ignoring the real crimes of Hillary & Co.

This man held the Trump presidency hostage for 678 days?

Mueller’s lack of familiarity with his own report, listlessness, and ignorance of very basic players in the scandal such as Fusion GPS reinforced a long-held fear that partisans used the respected lawman as a Trojan Horse to provide cover for the politicization of a legal inquiry. Mueller’s staff included Trump hater Peter Strzok (for a time) and lawyers — 13 registered Democrats and zero registered Republicans — who gave $23 to Democrats for every $1 they gave Republicans.

Casting Crowns to Tour With Elevation and Hillsong — What a disappointment!

Casting Crowns is set to begin touring in November with the bands of two of the most notorious false churches in the world today — Hillsong and Elevation. Both of these churches (to be accurate, they are not churches) are built upon the foundation of the false prosperity gospel. Their bands exist for the sole purpose of propagandizing the organizations they represent. Their music consists of shallow lyrics that mimic the preaching of their respective leaders — Brian Houston and Steven Furtick.

Simply put, they are cults — and they are dangerous.I can hear the arguments now. Just because they’re traveling together and singing together doesn’t mean they endorse each other (in a high-pitched, mocking voice). Actually, yes, it does. Unless you’re going to rebuke them or speak out against them, you’re tacitly endorsing them. You share a stage with them, sing with them, worship with them — you’re according with Belial, and the Bible warns against that. Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers.

For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols?

Beating the Diderot Effect — Good advice on finances.

The Diderot Effect states that obtaining a new possession often creates a spiral of consumption which leads you to acquire more new things. As a result, we end up buying things that our previous selves never needed to feel happy or fulfilled.

The article uses an example from the life of Denis Diderot, the French philosopher for whom the effect is named, in which he uses a windfall to purchase new clothes, then notices that all of his other clothes now look shabby by comparison, spurring a round of clothes-buying that ended up hurting him financially.

In short, the new clothes, which he bought so that he could feel better about how he dressed, actually ended up making him feel worse and spurred him into a clothes spending spree just so he could feel good about his clothes again but damaging his financial state along the way.

This is a sentiment I’ve observed in my own life. As someone who uses digital devices for almost all of my work, I find that when I upgrade or replace one device, I have this strange gut feeling that I should upgrade or replace all of the devices I rely on – my main desktop computer, my laptop, my tablet, and my phone, all of which have very distinct use cases and all of which I use at least a few times a week. The ones I’m not replacing feel old and shabby and I’m noticing all of the features of the newer models far more than usual. I don’t need a new iPad yet, but the new model with the Pencil that sticks to the side of the tablet and charges automatically… so, so tempting.

Please, Women, Stop Reading Ann Voskamp — And also stop reading Sarah Young, Priscilla Shirer and others with similar “hearing from God outside the Bible” nonsense.  People follow these phonies because they think the authors are special Christians who get direct revelations from God, but that’s the reason you should not follow them at all.  They aren’t really hearing anything new, they are blaspheming God by making things up and saying that He said it.

She saw a defacement on the sidewalk, and because, in her mind, she is seeing something that she wants to see, and hearing what she wants to hear — erotic affirmation –, she is attributing it to God. Outside of Scripture, we have no way of hearing directly from God, and the Bible is very clear that by attributing things to God that he did not say, you run the risk of blaspheming the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31-32). And this is exactly what Ann Voskamp is doing. She is claiming that God has revealed himself to her through this writing on the sidewalk, through personal experience, one that involves no Scripture whatsoever.

This is part of the larger problem, particularly with these charismatic women Bible study teachers that are running rampant within evangelicalism. These women, such as Voskamp, Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, etc., tend to write and speak in ways that are emotionally captivating to women and draw them into the experience. While so much of it seems to be benign on the surface, at a deeper level, it’s very dangerous and borderline blasphemous. Essentially what Voskamp is saying is that Jesus sacrificial death on the cross wasn’t enough for God to express his love and grace to us, and that Scripture alone isn’t enough for him to communicate it. She needed to hear it from a source outside of Scripture, and then she was able to praise God, and “experience” his grace.

Consider another excerpt from the same book in the last chapter, The Joy of Intimacy, she writes “I fly to Paris and discover how to make love to God.” There is not one place in Scripture that speaks of God’s love for us that way. It’s gross. Stop it!



Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza Thrown in Twitter Gulag — Social media is begging to be broken up or regulated.  They are ruining Democracy.

Mendoza was suspended from her Twitter account and told she would not be able to sign back in unless she deletes a series of posts about crimes committed by illegal aliens and the impact of sanctuary city policies on American citizens.

Supporting the enforcement of US immigration law is “hate speech,” according to Twitter.Also highly discouraged by Twitter is criticizing policies supported by leftists like Kamala Harris. One tweet that she was ordered to delete reads,

“@KamalaHarris What law can I break and have you defend me so staunchly? Provide me sanctuary from our laws? Political cleanup from YOUR INACTION FOR DECADES is what it’s called. You have #bloodonyourhands for every death of an American killed by an ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINAL you are protecting.”

Say stuff like that on Twitter and it is only a matter of time until they cart you off to the gulag. Don’t try using a Twitter alternative like Parler if you like your job.

Meanwhile, Twitter enjoys special legal protection as a neutral platform, as if it were not a publisher with an aggressive leftwing slant.
