    “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.” – Thomas Jefferson “If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” -George Washington As the laws currently stand, America is still a free nation. In the practical operation of government, I think it is incorrect to say we have one “of the people, by the people and for the people.” Democratic systems are fragile in nature, and they can be easily broken. The left has reached a point where they are so powerful, they can now set all the rules. Anyone...

    The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election was the most contentious and corrupt election in the history of America (it has been reported that almost 80% of Republicans, about 30% of Independents, and 17% of Democrats believe there was fraud). The shadow government and globalist elite have used an illegal election to replace a president that wanted to put America first with a president that will push world government, and these people are now closer to their long-cherished goal of a one-world government, economy, and godless global religion than they have ever been. In my last article, I reported that Dr. James...

  • Gentleness: Power Under Control - Devotional

    “Walk . . . with all . . . gentleness” (Ephesians 4:1-2). The antidote to our vengeful, violent society is biblical gentleness. A popular bumper sticker says, “Don’t Get Mad—Get Even.” People demand what they perceive to be their rights, no matter how the demand harms others. Some go to court to squeeze every last cent out of those who hurt them. More and more violent crimes are committed each year. We need a strong dose of biblical truth to cure these attitudes. The biblical solution is gentleness. The world might interpret gentleness or meekness as cowardice, timidity, or lack...

    The first reading for Sunday Mass speaks to us of the call of Samuel. In examining it, we can see what it is that makes a great prophet. Put more theologically, we can see the ways in which God’s graces form a great prophet.Samuel was surely one of the most significant prophets of the Old Testament and lived at a critical time, as Israel shifted from the time of the judges to the time of the monarchy. Ultimately, it was he who would see Israel through the difficult time of Saul’s reign and prepare and anoint them for David’s...

    Biden’s Lying Catholic ApologistsThey are trying to use the Capitol Hill mayhem to silence his critics.The recent condemnations of “reckless rhetoric” come mainly from liberals who engage in it. They froth at the mouth over the mayhem on Capitol Hill, making wild charges about “those responsible for it.” They spread the blame far and wide in the hopes of silencing and discrediting their political opponents.Joe Biden’s religious apologists have joined in this opportunism, using it to settle scores against Christian supporters of Trump.
