Federalism

The following is an interview with the Editor on the subject of Federalism: Question – I don’t think it is taught or generally known that our “Federal” government refers to a unity or federation of independent sovereign states.  The tenth amendment to the Constitution provides, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people.”  This amendment embodies the general principles of Federalism in a republican form of government.  Is this still relevant in America today? Answer – It is if you…

Casting the First Stone

“So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, ‘He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.’ ” John 8:7. Several years ago a commercial ran for a cruise line where the Father said to his family that for their vacation he had decided to take them to all of the Civil War battlefields.  The wife and children, who had been excited at the impending announcement, gave a bored, depressed look.  The advertisement went on to suggest to give your family an exciting cruise vacation instead.  Ironically, when…

Trump Speaking Out

Many people, even those who support President Trump, are put off by his responses to those who falsely accused him. This is a departure from some past Presidents, particularly George W. Bush, who thought it was beneath the office and even prevented others from offering a defense.  What I still consider one of the most disgusting and shameful media shows ever was the one woman protest of Cindy Shehan, with whom fifty or so media hacks used to harass President Bush for many weeks.  This media contrived event should have been exposed for what it was on day one and…

An Aberration Unexplained

Our communication methods, tools, means, and technology are evolving at an unprecedented rate.  TV has been relegated to a dwindling source of news; Internet and other digital and video forums are growing as fast as the technology that enables it.  Nevertheless, in this high-tech environment AM radio has produced an aberration that has impacted the entire…

Forceful Overthrow of America

The current rhetoric of the fascist humanist media and their spokespersons spew a constant stream of complaints against: ▪The President, ▪Representative Republic Form of Government, ▪Traditional American society, ▪Conservatives, ▪Evangelical Christians, ▪White people, ▪Masculinity, ▪Marriage, ▪Family, ▪Capitalism, ▪Business, ▪Free Speech, ▪Freedom of Religion, ▪Right to bear arms, ▪Right to life (unborn babies), ▪Equal treatment under the Law, ▪Justice, ▪Truth, ▪Law enforcement ▪Other individuals and organizations who oppose Fascist-humanism. These people complain because they consider themselves the rightful arbiters of justice and therefore they want to deal out punishment to some and restitution to others as they choose.  The best illustration…

Pontius Pilate and Robert Mueller

Both of these men are prosecutors and they have some striking similarity in their approach.  First, they both bring charges against a well liked successful leader who championed truth and interests of the common man.  Secondly, charges were brought to these prosecutors, not supported by fact, but from a deep-seated hatred of those who opposed these respective leaders of the common man.  We see this in the biblical account, “Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, ‘Are you the king of the Jews?’  ‘Is that your own idea,’ Jesus asked, ‘or did others talk to…

A Fascist Revolution

German and Italian Fascist revolts during the 1930’s each had their human dictator who gave voice to their power grab. Today’s Fascists in America use the media as their voice of revolt, though we have yet to see a one man leader,  yet he may arise.  A ground work was installed during the eight year Obama administration through executive orders that superseded Congressional authority to make law.  Also, through bureaucratic rule making laws were created, overridden or redefined.  An example of this was Obama’s justice department policy decision not to enforce various laws pertaining to illegal immigration. The EPA, IRS,…

The Establishment and Whigs

The Whig Party had been very successful but one huge issue resulted in its rapid demise.  Moreover, it tried to play the middle on a major issue, but alienated its members.  With its demise a new party, the Republican party, arose by reaching out to those who were ignored and betrayed by their former party.  In just a few years the Whig party was defunct.  History demonstrates that political fortunes can change rapidly.  Even though slavery was a block buster issue during the last years of the Whig party, it does not necessarily mean that one major overriding issue must…

Supreme Court Justice

The judicial branch of government is capped by the Supreme Court where the Justices exercise their influence on a case by case basis.  Historically, the Justices keep a low profile sequestered behind their loyal clerks and private environs.  They wield tremendous increasing power of the Federal Government and since the Civil War over every aspect of American life. The best proof of this is the recent decision that upheld Obama’s redefinition of marriage.  Many may never personally acknowledge it, because it is contrary to thousands of years of tradition, practice, religion, law, and common sense, but for American legal purposes…

The Nazis Among Us

Many people since World War II have questioned how Hitler could have carried out the holocaust.  How could the nation that produced Luther and had a long christian history have so willingly aided Hitler, including the professing church in most cases.  The answer is the fallen nature of man and the inherent wickedness that resides therein.  It is true of all people, including American people.  It may lie latent for a time and be restrained by a strong national christian witness but it is always there waiting to rear its ugly head when the christian witness diminishes, the pulpit does…

Hypocrisy Redefined

I noticed an article with an astonishing title/accusation against the Vice President, charging he and his wife of moral hypocrisy.  I looked for the source and noted that it was from a discredited fascist source.  However, what was the basis for this accusation?  The writer stated that Mrs. Pence taught art at a private christian school that did not condone sexual perversion and required each student to agree to follow biblical teaching and principles for marriage.  The author’s conclusion followed that working for such an institution was morally contrary to LGBTQ beliefs, and thus morally hypocritical. If one does not…

Sodomite Revenge

The wicked shaming of Karen Pence for teaching art part-time at a Christian school that adheres to biblically rooted views of marriage arises directly from the Supreme Court’s equally wicked decision to legalize same-sex marriage in Obergefell vs. Hodges.  As pointed out in William McGurn’s recent Wall Street Journal article, when Obergefell was decided it was sold as live-and-let-live.  But dissenting justice Alito predicted a perilous future for those who continued to hold a traditional view of marriage that being only between a man and a women.  He said – “I assume that those who cling to old beliefs will…

War, Politics, Football and Economics

I explained and pointed out the omission in the computation of gain very concisely to my Manager, “All the items valued and included in the asset and equity basis are not represented in the sales price.”  He understood and acknowledged my concern.  So, we arranged a meeting with the valuation experts.  I pointed out the very significant amounts that were identified and included in the basis computation, but for which no consideration had been given in the Fair Market Valuation. Yes, these could have been considered worthless and valued at zero, but if so, some explanation would be warranted.  The…

Is America Worth Saving

The Democrat media and it’s devoted followers believe America is not worth saving.  If they did, they would support the traditions, principles, laws, and people who made it what it is.  No, they have nothing but contempt for most Americans. Hillary Clinton coined their motto, “they are a basket of deplorables, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it.”  Even those who may disagree with these charges agree that America’s history is a thing of shame.  One of Barack Obama’s first actions was to go on a world tour apologizing for all the evil America had done.  On this…

Opposed to the Truth

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power.  Have nothing to do with such people.  They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always…

Supreme Injustice

U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts offered a rare public criticism of the President on Wednesday when he disputed President Trump’s claim that an “Obama judge” had blocked his effort to deny asylum to those entering the country illegally.  Roberts said that the U.S. doesn’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.”  He seemed to take the President’s claim that there was political basis in many rulings as an attack on an independent judiciary and went on to applaud the “extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing…

Over There

On November 11, at the World War I Armistice Day centennial observance, French President Emmanuel Macron stated that “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism: Nationalism is treason.”  He went on to say that “If we think our interests may only come first and we don’t care for others, it is treason of our values, a betrayal of all moral values”.  He lamented that a renewed spirit of nationalism, brought on by the harsh terms imposed on Germany after World War I, led to World War II. This globalist view of the world is misguided.  Rising nationalism in Germany between…

Resisting the Ordinance of God

“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government.  Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.  Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. II Peter 2:9-11. Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers.  For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.  Whosoever therefore…

Election Day Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank you that we can go to the polls and vote for our political leaders. Thank You for any God-fearing candidates who are on the ballots.  Give them wisdom and boldness to represent positions that support Your Word and Your Will. Help us to be good stewards with our financial resources so that we don’t selfishly burden future generations or other citizens by voting for candidates that promise short-term financial gain. Give us wisdom and discernment as we decipher the varying views and political rhetoric.  Open our eyes, so that we are not deceived by untruths and mischaracterizations…

Home of the Brave

“There is no more important struggle for American democracy than insuring a diverse independent and free media.” – Bill Moyers Irrespective of whether this statement is true, there is scarcely any diversity in media. Main-stream media is not independent but one with the Democrat party, and media is not free of globalist social-fascist who monopolize its ownership.  Bill Moyers was an advocate and participant in bringing about the current state of media.  The struggle for American democracy is lost if it is dependent upon the media.  We didn’t elect the media; it answers only to a small group of hidden millionaires;…

Sovereign Over Nations

Speculators and movie makers love to talk about the Apocalypse – the end of the world. However, less is said about the end of America, which is the leader of the free world and western civilization.  There have been great civilizations down through history, such as the Roman empire, but there never has been a…

Eliminate the Research Tax Credit

The latest tax reform lowered the corporate tax rates and at the same time eliminated many corporate business tax credits.  This is an excellent idea, in general, as it would give corporations additional money to invest in their companies as they see fit rather than be incentivized to invest the money as the government would prefer. I was, however, dismayed to see that one credit

Federal Tax Apportionment

The new tax bill limits deductions on high state taxes.  Criticism of this provision was that it was unfair, particularly given these high tax states contributed more to the Federal government measured by taxes paid in.  However, is this a just measure of fairness?  The answer gets complex and that is when reason is discarded.  Clearly, the amount paid in by state is irrelevant standing alone and should be offset by the benefits received.  However, the benefits received are

Distinguishing the Law

Everyone is different in many ways physically, genetically, and environmentally. Nevertheless, law applies to everyone equally and the statue representing justice is blindfolded to illustrate this principle.  There is to be no favoritism with respect to the law.  However, there has been a consistent erosion of this foundation of liberty, freedom, and justice.  Today, arguments are made to set aside an equal application of law and in many instances these arguments 

Reaping the Whirlwind

“For it was the Lord’s intention to harden their hearts, so that they would engage Israel in battle, be completely destroyed without mercy, and be annihilated, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.” Joshua 11:20. God will at times harden people’s hearts, in His sovereignty, that results in them acting in a way that guarantees their destruction as proper
