  • Quick Compelling Bible Study Vol. 42: New Year’s Resolution From God to You

    01/03/2021 6:24:36 AM PST · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | January 3, 2021 | Myra Kahn Adams
    By this time, you might have broken your New Year’s resolution. But fear not, tomorrow is Monday when the new year really begins, and you can recommit. In addition to whatever behavior you have committed yourself to do or not do, this study suggests an all-encompassing, life-changing resolution of thought and attitude. We begin with the backstory; that is the lesson. About 10 days ago, and without any warm-up, husband David announced, “I must decrease, while He increases” was his new guiding-life principle. (Not your typical Adams family Tuesday night dinner conversation.) Since David is a godly man, I knew...
  • Here's to New Life in the New Year

    The current president of Planned Parenthood is unafraid to use the word "abortion." In a Christmas-season interview with The Washington Post, Alexis McGill Johnson scolded those who would downplay the importance of abortion in her organization's work. She says it is "stigmatizing" to do so. For those who oppose abortion, this is a cause for gratitude. For decades, abortion has been subject to euphemisms from its advocates. "Choice," "freedom," "health," are all used to avoid saying the actual word "abortion." Which makes sense: Polls consistently suggest Americans don't like abortion. And why should we? We know in our hearts that...
  • Ex-GOP senator suggests forming new party, calls Trump 'ringmaster' of Republicans

    William Cohen, a former Republican senator from Maine and Defense secretary under former President Clinton, blasted GOP lawmakers challenging the results of the 2020 presidential election in a Thursday interview in which he suggested the formation of a new political party. Cohen made the comments on CNN's "The Situation Room" while discussing Sen. Josh Hawley's (R-Mo.) plans to object during Congress's counting of the Electoral College vote on Wednesday. Cohen called Hawley's actions "shameful" but warned that Republicans are just following President Trump's lead, calling him the party's "ringmaster." "We have to remember that the current occupant of the White...

    I don't like making predictions for a new year because they are just guesses and like palm readers, fortune-tellers and "experts," guesses are often wrong. The point was proved last year when I predicted Donald Trump's re-election and could not foresee the COVID-19 virus, as few did, or its impact on the economy and our optimistic spirit. In a recent Wall Street Journal article, author Bob Greene recalled the 75th anniversary of the film "Meet Me in St. Louis" in which Judy Garland sings "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." The lyric contains the optimistic lines, "someday soon we all...
  • To Hell With 2020

    The more years you get behind you, the less happy you are to see one pass. But 2020? To hell with it: good riddance. There really wasn’t anything good about 2020, the whole thing was a joke at our expense. Even though it feels like 10 years ago, and was a complete joke, the year started off with impeachment. Remember that? Democrats manufactured charges against President Donald Trump, knowing full-well there was nothing to it, just so they could stain his record. Calling the bluff of Democrats, and in an extremely rare move, President Trump released the classified transcript of...

    serious eats ^ | 12/22/2020 | robert moss
    New Year's Day is approaching, which means we need to have a little talk about Hoppin' John. A savory blend of rice and black-eyed peas, it's served alongside collard greens as the traditional New Year's Day meal in the South and, increasingly, in other parts of the country. Eating those two dishes will ensure prosperity in the new year, and the collards represent greenbacks and the black-eyed peas coins. Or so they say. For a long time, if offered a plate of collards and Hoppin' John on New Years, I would have been inclined to say, "keep the change," for...
  • A Conservative New Year’s Resolution

    All true conservatives hold hope-upon-hope that 2021 will be better in every way that 2020. The fact that the Republican Party snatched defeat from the jaws of electoral victory has left most of us disconsolate heading into the new year. Being an empiricist academic, now retired, I offer you ten resolutions that will allow each of us to do our part to make 2021 a better year in myriad ways.Support any policy that restrains China from continuing its infiltration and influence in America while working against their efforts and supporters, especially politicians like Eric Swalwell, who would do China’s bidding...

    Axios ^ | December 18, 2020 | Mike Allen, Jonathan Swan
    Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller ordered a Pentagon-wide halt to cooperation with the transition of President-elect Biden, shocking officials across the Defense Department, senior administration officials tell Axios. Behind the scenes: A top Biden official was unaware of the directive. Administration officials left open the possibility cooperation would resume after a holiday pause. The officials were unsure what prompted Miller's action, or whether President Trump approved. Why it matters: Miller's move, which stunned officials throughout the Pentagon, was the biggest eruption yet of animus and mistrust toward the Biden team from the top level of the Trump administration. What happened:...

    CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen on Monday advised the American public to cancel their Christmas and New Year plans as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. During an appearance on “New Day,” Wen voiced her concern that COVID-19 deaths and hospitalizations are still rising after Thanksgiving. Because of the “Thanksgiving surge,” she called on everyone to “absolutely not gather indoors with anyone who is not in their immediate family” for the upcoming Christmas and New Year holidays.

    A Mummers group honoring Flyers mascot Gritty was kicked out of the annual New Year’s Day parade in Philadelphia on Wednesday after one of its members used blackface. Froggy Carr, a wench brigade that dressed in orange-and-black colored costumes in what was apparently a motif honoring Gritty, got booted from the parade competition for best outfit design, according to NBC10 Philadelphia. The outlet caught up with mummer Kevin Hinkel, who was the lone individual confirmed to have used blackface, per NBC10.

  • 2020: A Year of Chaos, a Year of Clarity

    I am not claiming some great prophetic insight. I do not believe I have received any special revelation. In my view, I am only stating the obvious. In short, barring dramatic and unforeseen circumstances, the year 2020 will be one of the most chaotic, divided, and tumultuous years in our nation’s history. It will also be a year of clarity, as we will see people and groups and movements as they really are. All this is part of the larger “Trump effect.”To explain, it was former governor Jeb Bush who first labelled Donald Trump the “chaos candidate.” This, in turn,...

    If you thought you can’t top the stupidity we experienced in 2019, brace yourself for 2020 because it’s going to be a pronoun-fueled weather cult pinko freakshow. But it won’t be all amusing antics – the left hates us and its ugly mask is coming off, revealing the even uglier fascist visage lurking beneath. If you listen to them, and if you aren’t an insufferable goo goo wimp who refuses to hear them, you will know that they intend to silence you, even imprison you, and deprive you of the ability to participate in your own governance. So, if...

    Christmas is a special time in our family. Our daughter, Maggie, loves decorating the tree, and her brother, Robert, is now tall enough to decorate the top third -- that Maggie and I cannot reach. The highlight of the season is the Christmas Eve service. The pageant, led by children of our church, includes Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus, along with donkeys, angels, bumble bees, a camel and a dinosaur. (The children can wear any animal costume they like). The Christmas celebrations remind me of how blessed I am to be part of a large, loving, generous family. The party...

    I recently heard a liberal politician talk about the struggles that he had to go through to overcome his family’s poverty. He then shared his commitment as a politician to help others not have to go through such struggles. No struggles! The struggles of life are what make us stronger. They are a gift on the journey to true maturity. You can’t give people maturity; they earn it. Too many Americans have forgotten that life has always been difficult. It is by struggling through life’s challenges and overcoming obstacles that optimism, confidence and success are earned. Optimism comes from overcoming...
