Politics, President Donald Trump

President Trump; my thoughts so far.

I used to be an administrator at a medium sized university. One day, at lunch I found myself sitting with several faculty members who were disparaging the administration. Being a minor player, their focus was not directed at me but rather aimed at the highest reaches of those making decisions. There was no offense meant nor taken personally. However, after…

We’ve been duped!

Share

Back in August I wrote an article pointing out the evil in today’s media bias. I thought it odd at the time that CNN, MSNBC and other Democrat leaning media outlets were giving Donald so much, positive, free air time. They obviously wanted to throw a monkey wrench into the Republican primary. Now we can see the end game went…

The Death of Liberty

Share

Seven score and thirteen years ago Abraham Lincoln stood on the battleground at Gettysburg and publicly pondered whether “a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal… could long endure.” This great nation, the United States of America, was at the time wracked by a great civil war in the which six…

Marriage

Share

(This is a talk I gave in church a couple of weeks ago.) Not too many years ago, I attended an “All Employee Meeting” at BYU-Idaho. Toward the end of his remarks, the President of the University, Kim B. Clarke, made a comment that I thought was very interesting. He said: “We need to teach our children that marriage is…

The deafening sound of silence; Hillary’s non-indictment.

Share

Yesterday, FBI Director James Comey personally released the findings of a lengthy FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private E-mail server and the repercussions for national security. His conclusions: “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” A…

Moveon.org is successful in Chicago and slips ever deeper into fascism.

Share

Moveon.org along with several of its aligned groups, have taken responsibility for the highly organized disruption of Donald Trump’s event in Chicago. I don’t like Donald Trump. I really wish people would quit voting for him. Along with that I support Moveon’s right to demonstrate and voice objection to what he says. But, when they move to silence him and deny…

The Donald in lipstick.

Share

We once were a great country. We were proud of our heritage. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, General Robert E. Lee, etc. Now we see their flaws. They were slave owners. Instead of assessing their character with the morals of their time, we slap the stencil of our politically correct “modern and enlightened” values and evaluate their actions according to our…

The Four Horsemen of the American Political Apocalypse

Share

Revealed now to a nation in the throes of a nasty Presidential Election, are four politicians bringing destruction and chaos to the American electorate. Lacking in truth, moral character and viable ideological beliefs, these empowered political equestrians are analogous to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse as revealed in the Book of Revelations. Where John’s foreseen biblical chastisement portends war,…

Fear Driven Democracy

Share

The 2016 election is different than any election I can remember. A popular talk show host recently speculated about the differences, why non-politicians have become so popular in the Republican Party concomitant with the unpopularity of established politicians. He attributed it to fear. I think he is correct. Both Conservatives and Liberals seem to be afraid. Both groups fear the…
