The Wrath of God and His 11th-Hour Plan

Wrath

I believe God’s wrath is just outside America’s door, and while a few Americans area aware, because they’ve listened and heeded God’s word, most Americans are oblivious and will not likely be spared. Steven Mosher published this on November 27th: “I am afraid large sectors of America’s population are going to be off guard, however, […]

Dear SCOTUS: Texas HAS STANDING

While reading through the docket of the U.S. Supreme Court, in particular the 35 motions filed by Texas, 17 additional states, and both supporting and detracting entities, I observed two things: Texas does indeed have standing commensurate with U.S. Law. The U.S. Supreme Court did NOT rule that Texas didn’t have standing. Rather, they only […]

Senator Collins (Allegedly) BREAKS THE LAW

Susan Collins

I must say that I was surprised, if not floored, that any senator, much less one who claims Republican allegiance, would ever depart from their Constitutional duties in quite the way as has Senator Collins.

You cannot exclude any candidate for public office or government appointee on the basis of their religious beliefs (or lack thereof).   HOWEVER, “separation of […]

Solving America’s Problems Requires Clear Thinking

Clear Thinking

Yesterday I stumbled across a rather insightful editorial by Bart Hinkle at the Richmond Times.  He demonstrated such clear thinking that I wrote the author a letter, presented here with minor corrections for spelling, punctuation, and grammar: I found your recent article to be very insightful.  It is a fascinating look at what ails America […]

Second Amendment Definitions: Well Regulated – Militia – Arms – Shall

Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court have continually tripped over the meaning of these four simple words: well regulated militia arms shall Their ineptitude astounds me.  The only plausible explanation is that instead of examining what the words actually mean, and supporting and defending them as required by their oaths of office and the […]
