Ewart: Everything Has Turned Upside Down And Stark Raving Crazy

“Cities and governments tolerate crazy people. Companies don’t!” ~ Geoffrey West

God knows how anyone can watch the news any more. Each day one or more crazy things happen that defy logic, intellect and common sense. For example, why are 70,000 people a year dying of a drug overdose? That doesn’t include the hundreds of thousands (or is it millions) that are “hooked” on drugs. Remember, there would be no drugs crossing our southern border if millions of stupid Americans weren’t consuming the drugs!!!

Why is every 2020 Democrat candidate for president coming out with socialist policies that would play well in Communist China, but hardly in the United States of America? Where were these people born? There is no way they could have been sired by American parents. Or, has Progressive brainwashing been so successful that socialism is now in the main stream?

This is America’s New Face of Brutal Rage and Chaos

At some point this past month, America crossed a Rubicon that dramatically threw our society into a disorder manifested by the denial of reality and truth. However, the unmasking of disorder in all its hideousness has produced more intense longings for a return of a moral order by those who grieve for the nation and who truly love God…

In the year 49 B.C., Julius Caesar moved his forces into Italy over a small insignificant stream called the Rubicon. In so doing, he violated the law that forbade generals to move troops out of their assigned provinces. Continue reading

Bracken: Covington Gives a Glimpse of Civil War Two

During the attempted electronic lynching of the Covington Catholic high school boys on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, the mask hiding the Left’s genocidal rage slipped and was momentarily visible. The reality of the confrontation was inverted 180 degrees by the duplicitous mainstream media so that a smiling white teenager was made to face the wrath of an Orwellian two-minute hate that stretched on for days, even after the factual record was corrected. Accelerated by social media, the virtual lynch mob called for, among other horrors, MAGA-hat-wearing teenage boys to be fed headfirst into wood chippers, or for them to be locked en-masse into their school and the school to be burned to the ground.

Prediction: High court will one day face heartbeat bill

A longtime pro-life activist predicts it’s a certainty the U.S. Supreme Court will have to rule on abortion once again, this time over the evidence of a heartbeat in the womb.

Janet Porter of ministry Faith 2 Action tells OneNewsNow that the so-called “heartbeat” bills introduced around the country will eventually challenge Roe v Wade, and she advises that an Ohio bill has the momentum to become law and possibly reach the high court. Continue reading

Smith: Are you offended?

Some of You out there are so anti-Trump, You would destroy the Republic rather than give him any credit for trying to save the Republic. I get it. I stand against him on some issues myself.

But to castigated him for upholding existing immigration laws and trying to provide border security, build the wall and more is just insane. You castigate him for using U.S. LAWS that CONGRESS PASSED, IN THE SAME EXACT MANNER THAT ALL PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS HAVE DONE. Continue reading

Where Do We Go From Here?

If people won’t step up now, our future looks grim. The choice is yours. Sit on the sidelines or be a player.

What has happened to our country? We elect Muslims who want to impeach OUR President, we want our children born without an identity, we allow thousands of people to cross our borders illegally (committing horrible crimes), we call a Wall immoral – yet we condone ripping babies piece by piece out of their mother’s womb. How much more immoral can we become?

We cry for compassion as homeless Veterans and seniors suffer, yet we have compassion for invaders who are here illegally and will never serve or pay a dime.

Americans need to STAND UP and take this country back. The time for talking about it is OVER. ~ Ed.

As a retired Member of Congress (1985-97), my heart breaks for what we are leaving our kids and grandchildren. We have failed to keep our country together.

We have been shamed into letting happen what has taken place with our culture for fear of offending someone, either personally or as a group. Continue reading

At 200, Marx Is Still Wrong

Two hundred years ago, Karl Marx was born in Trier, Germany, a small town in the western part of the country. To celebrate his bicentennial, the People’s Republic of China donated a larger-than-life statue of the founder of Communism to the city of his birth, which the Trier City Council voted to accept. It goes without saying that this memorialization was controversial, not only because of the devastation caused throughout the world during the twentieth century in the name of Marxism, but also because of the still living memory of Communist rule in East Germany. Henceforth when one thinks of Trier, one should remember Tiananmen Square.

As if the China connection were not sufficiently provocative, the Marx commemoration in Trier included a panegyric delivered in the town’s cathedral by none other than Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission and effective head of the European Union. Juncker is hardly known as a deep philosophical thinker and his efforts to present Marx as a “philosopher who thought into the future” were the insipid ramblings of a career Eurocrat, but his very presence at the event became a scandal because he casually dismissed the letters of protest he admitted having received from concerned members of the public in central and eastern Europe—the territories which had suffered most under Communist rule and where the memory of that dictatorship is still very much alive.

Bonhoeffer on the ‘Stupidity’ That Led to Hitler’s Rise

Although he was in power for only a handful of years, Hitler and his Nazi government slaughtered millions. One of the more well-known victims of that slaughter was Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was executed on April 8th, 1945, a few short weeks before Hitler’s own death.

Unlike many of Hitler’s victims, Bonhoeffer was not a Jew, but a Lutheran minister, scholar, and theologian who boldly spoke against Hitler’s policies. Continue reading

Ross: I’m Not Holding My Breath

The more that I read and study the matter, the more convinced I become that adopting the Constitution and implementing the government outlined therein was the biggest mistake our country ever made. Yet to utter such words might cause one to be labeled as treasonous; and if not that, certainly unpatriotic because it implies that the person saying it does not support their government.

A simple solution to solve legislative gridlock

Remove some of the powers that nationally unelected political party leaders now have

Which citizens voted to give Nancy Pelosi the power to shut down our government? None. And yet there she is, able to close down numerous government services, with just the power of her intransigence.

We need to look at a simplified legislative example to understand the problem and the solution. To properly grasp this situation, it’s important to understand that essentially all legislation originates from specialized legislative committees.

Let’s say that Republicans introduce a bill (H.R. 54321) in the U.S. House of Representatives. Let’s also say that Democrat Representative Jones decides that supporting 54321would be in the best interest of his constituents and the country as a whole. Continue reading

America’s Wild-Eyed Communists

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radical “New Green Deal” legislation proposal, presented to America on February 7th, is an outright Marxist socialist and a virtual communist attempt to supplant our Republic system and our capitalist economy, in a manner that can only result in the destruction of both. Offering an extraordinary, unprecedented level of government intrusion, a “massive government intervention” in her words, AOC’s plan isn’t simply going to transform our lives, rather it will smash our way of life, through a mass de-population scheme, that Americans ignore at our own peril.

Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal sensationalizes and magnifies the imagined impending doom from climate change, and yet, the plan actually addresses very few solutions for anything climate related. Instead, the plan has latched on to climate change, in utopian fashion, and a ruse that offers everything under the sun as a new right, from ice-cream for everyone to a right to get a government purchased pony, or so it does seem. She and her ilk have opportunistically seized upon the issue to justify seizing the United States economy and implementing full-blown socialism and the most Left-wing agenda in American history.

Reality and Dreams

Welcome to the 21st Century where sex is free and love is a pocket full of notes, where losing your phone is worse than losing your values. Where it is fashionable to smoke and drink, and if you don’t you’re obsolete. Where men cheat on their women with smiles, and if women do not do the same or worse, it is because they are afraid of believing that they will be caught. Where the bathroom was made for photos.

21st Century, where women fear pregnancy more than HIV. Where the pizza delivery service arrives faster than the ambulance. Where people die of fear of terrorism and criminals more than their conscience. When clothes decide the value of a person, and having money is more important than having friends or even family. Continue reading

Spivey: Old Dogs and Children

Well, here we are again. I wrote a piece earlier today (2/8/19) in which I mentioned a certain meetin’ that I attended earlier this week, and made a vague reference to “some of the things that were said.” Now I’m sittin’ here and Tom T. Hall’s on the old digital turntable… “… Ain’t but three things in this world that’s worth a solitary dime, but old dogs, and children, and watermelon wine…” And then the line that brought to mind one specific thing that I said durin’ the course of that meetin’: “… God bless little children while they’re still too young to hate…” A very simple, yet incredibly profound statement; one I’ve often pondered. So now, we’re gonna talk about what I think, about my opinion; nothin’ to be backed up by historical facts or documents, no dates and places, just what I think. We’ve been here before, some of us, and y’all know that sometimes when I write about what I think, I can tend to get a little fired-up. I’ll try and avoid that today. Continue reading

Do Nothing, Get Socialism – Is America Stupid?

Since I got involved in politics it has become more and more evident that the things that I said when I started 10 years ago are now a reality. To my wonderful supporters, I love you. You have given me such insight. Your research enabled to connect the dots (my specialty) and report what is happening, what you can look for, what to expect. We must understand the plan, if we’re going to do anything to “fix” America. “It’s America stupid”, says it all. Continue reading
