The Gospel in Two Words

Written by Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas on Wednesday, 25 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas

If the church is going to regain her ministry as salt and light in our darkened and morally decayed culture, we must return to both aspects of the blessed Gospel. The Evangel is for the individual and the Kerygma is for the nations.

The Gospel in Two Words

Jesus commanded the church to go and preach the Gospel to every creature. But what is this Gospel? Why is it important? Out of all the messages this world can conceive, religious or otherwise, why is the Gospel distinct from them all?

Can Obama Serve Another Term?

Written by Jake MacAulay on Wednesday, 25 March 2015. Posted in Jake MacAulay, Opinion

Since the age of Clinton, with the end of each administration has come the rumor that the outgoing president will attempt to retain power. Will Obama be the one to end the Republic once and for all, or will that Rubicon only be crossed by a future tyrant?

Can Obama Serve Another Term?

I have heard from time to time that there are people in America who believe Obama is going to try to run for another term as President. I could see the theory flames being stoked this weekend as Obama invoked the “cut it out” gesture, slicing his hand in front of his neck while a small crowd at a Princeton basketball game cheered, “Four more years! Four more years!”

Starbucks Spills Coffee on its Crotch

Written by J. Matt Barber on Wednesday, 25 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, J. Matt Barber

Starbucks attempts to turn progressive orthodoxy into marketing gold in campaign that has annoyed everyone.

Starbucks Spills Coffee on its Crotch

Espresso makes you hyper. When you’re hyper you sometimes make rash decisions. When you make rash decisions you usually regret it. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz evidently chugged a Venti-five-shot-double-pump-skinny-vanilla-latte last week before announcing Starbucks’ new “RaceTogether” public relations stunt. As he describes it, the über-”progressive” head of the multi-billion dollar corporate mega-giant that brews mediocre coffee by the silo full and whose leadership is almost exclusively white – hopes to “start a discussion” about American race relations. (I’m pretty sure that discussion has been ongoing for a couple centuries, but, hey, I was wrong that one time about that other thing.) 

Cars We Might Be Able To Buy

Written by Eric Peters on Wednesday, 25 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

You might want to buy a light-weight, fuel efficient car. Too bad you can't, because the government won't let you.

Cars We Might Be Able To Buy

There is no such thing as a free market. Not in the United States, at any rate. You are free to buy what they (the people who comprise the apparat of government) allow you to buy.

A Time for Clarity

Written by Star Parker on Wednesday, 25 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Star Parker

When Netanyahu became clear he would not cave to pressure from Washington to support a Palestinian state, Israelis said "thank you" and swept him back to power.

A Time for Clarity

Freedom House, which publishes an annual report measuring freedom around the world, rating nations based on political rights and civil liberties, has recently issued its 2015 report.

The Israelis Send Obama a Message

Written by Alan Caruba on Wednesday, 25 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Obama's foreign policy has been one that has led to chaos, disorder, decay and death, particularly in the Middle East.

The Israelis Send Obama a Message

When the news of Benjamin Netanyahu’s reelection victory was announced I factitiously posted on my Facebook page that the Israelis had “sent Obama a two-word message and it wasn’t happy birthday.” It took him two days to call and congratulate Bibi.

Preaching to The Choir That Just Does Not Sing!

Church leaders in America are failing to defend the Faith and instead are standing by and allowing the statists to indoctrinate Christian children.

Live Agent Connectivity

Written by Eric Peters on Wednesday, 25 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Eric Peters

Under the guise of safety, modern fascism has delivered Big Brother tyranny to us, even in our cars, those once-fabled devices that in a earlier age symbolized for generations of Americans the freedom of movement on the open road.

Live Agent Connectivity

Things necessarily begin somewhere.

The Experiment Known as Seattle

Written by Robert A. McKeown on Tuesday, 24 March 2015. Posted in Robert A. McKeown, Opinion

Advocates for minimum or living wages say they are acting out of compassion for low-skilled workers. What they really are doing is putting low-skilled labor out of work.

The Experiment Known as Seattle

Recently, Seattle has been the buzz of free market enthusiasts throughout social media and business websites. Soon, Seattle will attempt to implement a “living wage” of $15 per hour. The web has been awash in reports of restaurants and small businesses already closing their doors or, at least, preparing to downsize significantly in anticipation of the new minimum.

Do Godly People Need Help Reading the Scriptures?

Written by Donald Hank on Tuesday, 24 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

Varieties of gnostic heresies have often led Christians astray. Rather than something out of the past, they are still with us today, and they still lead Christians astray, with terrible consequences.

Do Godly People Need Help Reading the Scriptures?

I am often asked what I think of the Blood Moons theory, which is tied to religious leaders, notably John Hagee, who use a convoluted analysis of certain passages from the Bible to convince Christians that the Second Coming is imminent and will happen in their lifetimes, something that many Christians have believed since the days of Christ. Something that will be true, at least for a future generation.

Let the Budget Battles Begin

Written by Alan Caruba on Tuesday, 24 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Federal spending continues to be out of control, but the new GOP budget plan lays out a modest step in the right direction.

Let the Budget Battles Begin

The announcement of a new fiscal budget for the U.S. government always sets the stage for struggles between the spenders and those trying to put some limits on the spending. The spenders usually win because politicians—particularly progressive ones—love to tap the national treasury in order to reward their supporters.

Sessions Disapproves Ambush Elections Rule

on Monday, 23 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Letter From Congress

Rep. Sessions: "These are not policies that help the American worker and bolster the economy; they are policies that are part of a culture of union favoritism that does nothing but harm."

Sessions Disapproves Ambush Elections Rule

By the office of Congressman Pete Sessions

U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), chairman of the House Rules Committee, today released the following statement on the House passage of a measure (S.J. Res. 8) expressing disproval of the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) “ambush rule,” which expedites union elections and forces employers to give substantial personal information about their employees to unions without consent or confidentiality standards in place:

Why World Bank Can't Compete With Chinese AIIB

Written by Donald Hank on Friday, 20 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Donald Hank

After years of abuse, with the rise of China the supremacy of the petrodollar system is in question.

Why World Bank Can't Compete With Chinese AIIB

My translation into English of a press conference given by the top China monetary policy expert Chen Yulu appeared in December of 2014 at American Daily Herald. Mr. Chen showed that the internationalization of the RMB had nearly doubled YOY in 2013 and reported that RMB clearing centers were opening up in major European capitals and in Asian countries allied with the US. Based on such data, he predicted meteoric growth of the RMB, namely, in 3-5 years, the Chinese yuan (RMB) could be the third most widely used currency in world trade, even though at the time it was ranked only ninth. Though Mr. Chen emphasized that China did not intend to replace the dollar in world trade, it would be hard to conclude otherwise from the facts and figures he presented.

Eternal Life at Yard-Sale Prices

Written by Dave Daubenmire on Friday, 20 March 2015. Posted in Dave Daubenmire, Opinion

Real Christianity is not the lollipops and unicorns of the sugary sweet megachurch variety. Real Christianity follows the teachings and example of Christ, laying out a path that is anathema to the materialistic, sin-based lives of the world at large.

Eternal Life at Yard-Sale Prices

And the king said unto Araunah, “Nay; but I will surely buy it from thee at a price; neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the Lord my God of that which doth cost me nothing.”  -2 Samuel 24:24.

It's Not "Global Warming." It's "Springtime."

Written by Alan Caruba on Friday, 20 March 2015. Posted in Opinion, Alan Caruba

Now that it is naturally getting warmer in the northern hemisphere with the change of seasons, look for global warming propagandists to make more rabid claims that the sky is falling.

It's Not

After decades of environmental claims that “global warming” would plunge the planet into catastrophic harm to its human and other inhabitants—at the same time blaming humans for causing it—the sheer arrogance and ignorance of these claims always ignores the real power that is represented by the Earth itself and the beginning of Spring should be proof enough for anyone paying any attention.
