    It may be argued, and it frequently is, that free com- petition is a ruthless and cruel process. But it is not nearly so ruthless and cruel as the opposite philosophy, which down through the ages has kept the majority of people ill-fed, ill-housed, ill-clothed, embroiled in wars, and dying of famine and pestilence.

    Tamara Wilhite: You said that you interviewed people who worked on the Apollo program, both from NASA and Northrup Grumman. How were you able to meet with them? And how many are left? Steve Taranovich: My journey began with the intent to write an article for publication on the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing. After numerous phone calls, I traveled to Long Island, NY where I had lived for most of my life, and contacted the Grumman retirees group and the Cradle of Aviation Museum at which most of the Grumman retirees worked as docents. This was the first...
  • Ready Player Two: A Painfully Woke and Unnecessary Sequel

    PJMedia ^ | 11/25/2020 | Matt Margolis
    On Tuesday, Ready Player Two, the sequel to the wildly successful 2011 novel Ready Player One, was published. I am a big fan of the first novel. I loved the thrilling story and the ’80s pop culture references. I stayed up until 2:30 a.m. to finish the novel because I didn’t want to wait another day to find out how it ended. Two years ago I drove several hours to attend a book signing event with the author, Ernest Cline. When the movie came out later that year, I went to see it on opening day. So, believe me, when...

    Mary was pressured into three abortions by her abusive boyfriend and an abortion “counselor.” Her testimonial is recorded in the book, “Giving Sorrow Words: Women’s Stories of Grief after Abortion.” The first time Mary became pregnant, she was happy and wanted to keep the baby. But when she told her boyfriend, he “flew into a terrifying rage.” She says she “wept, begged and cajoled” but he demanded that she have an abortion. She agreed to go to an abortion facility and speak to a “counselor” there. She says the middle-aged counselor “seemed so motherly and sympathetic at first.” Mary hoped...

    A book intended to help people hurt by abortion featured the story of Kay, who was coerced by her mother into an abortion at age 16. When Kay first learned she was pregnant, she wanted to abort. But then she spoke to a friend, who convinced her to choose life for her baby. Kay began to look forward to the birth of her child and adjust to the idea of being a mother. But when she told her own mother, the woman flew into a rage and demanded that Kay have an abortion. Kay says: My resolve [to have the...

    I had the opportunity to interview author J.P. Redding (a pseudonym) shortly after his first book “Off Grid” came out. Initially, I thought it was a survivalist book. The subtitle “Is there anywhere to hide from the surveillance state?” suggested that. It turns out that it is a science fiction book, as well.

    Soapboxie ^ | Aug 25, 2020 | Tamara Wilhite
    “The Beauty of Intolerance” is a book by Josh and Sean McDowell. Its subtitle is “setting a generation free to know truth and love”. The book “The Beauty of Intolerance” is a polemic against the modern political movement that has redefined tolerance from “agree to disagree”, which the authors state Christians can live with, to “agree with me or shut up, anything else is evil hate!”

  • John Pavlovitz, "White Evangelicals, This is Why People Are Through With You"

    ohn Pavlovitz, who pastors North Raleigh Community Church in North Carolina, writes a heartfelt letter to white evangelicals: Dear White Evangelicals, I need to tell you something: People have had it with you. They’re done. They want nothing to do with you any longer, and here’s why: They see your hypocrisy, your inconsistency, your incredibly selective mercy, and your thinly veiled supremacy. For eight years they watched you relentlessly demonize a black President; a man faithfully married for 26 years; a doting father and husband without a hint of moral scandal or the slightest whiff of infidelity. They watched you...

Her husband is a Navy veteran himself and is currently serving in the Army reserves. In the video above, Reilly shares more about her job as an air traffic...

    I'm just asking here if anybody knows what caused Karl Marx to turn away from God and become and avowed Satanist and an occultist? I've tried to find information on what may have been the reason or reasons, but there is scant information on this. Is there any information out there?

    Science fiction and horror author Andrew Fox’s first novel was Fat White Vampire Blues. He’s continued to put out a steady stream of science fiction and fantasy that’s equally edgy and entertaining. For example, he recently released a short story collection titled Hazardous Imaginings: The Mondo Book of Politically Incorrect Science Fiction. And I had the opportunity to interview him.

    Art For Liberty Blog ^ | November 9, 2020 | Aducknamedjoe
    Science fiction, since the golden age of the short story magazines like Astounding and Analog has always had a libertarian streak. For a genre all about individuals using technology and reason to survive and thrive in an often hostile universe it’s hard not to come across as fundamentally libertarian (as much as the pinko writers over at TOR try…). libertarian science fiction stories But with so much sci-fi out there that could be libertarian, what’s actually worth reading and what should you avoid as if it were an unshaven leftist on the sidewalk who’s trying to collect signatures for her...
  • Is the fight between the left and right on earth a replay of the war in Heaven?

    11/08/2020 3:00:02 PM PST · by Jonty30 · 35 replies
    I'm asking, because the spiritual predisposition of the left is to want what God offers, but they don't want Him. Not many people know that Karl Marx was a Satanist and an occultist, and it would not surprise me if he was given a personal visit from Satan when you consider just how much he hated God despite having been a devout follower up until a short time before he turned away from God. Is what is happening in America an attempt to fulfill Isaiah 14:13, 14? "For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I...
