  • Wisdom Of The Ages

    Grace thru faith ^ | 11-12-2011 | Jack Kelley
    Today in almost every field, great emphasis is placed on new thought. Nothing wrong with that per se, but in our quest for the “latest thing” are we losing our grounding in the wisdom of the ages? snip Clearly, the Lord intended for us to use these truths to escape the prison built for our mind by the experiences of our life. It’s with good reason the Bible is called the Owner’s Manual for the Human Race. This is truly the Wisdom of the Ages.
  • NEW ESSAY: People in Boxes

    Liberty Island Magazine ^ | 01/02/2021 | Jamie K. Wilson
    And therein is the crux. Boxes? Who puts people in boxes? Well, racists do, because they think all black people are alike in certain ways. And sexists. And homophobes. Lots of people, and it’s never a good thing. It leads to individuals being treated unfairly because they have been forced into a box that does not fit them. In today’s woke society, progressives, however, are the worst transgressors. “Basket of deplorables.” “Toxic masculinity.” “Fascists.” (Seriously, have they ever looked up what that word means?) “Teabagger.” These are boxes they put other people in, and once you’re in the box, it...
  • Bullying in the Name of Social Justice: A Sign of the Times

    RealClearPolitics ^ | 01/03/2020 | J. Pender Zane
    Cyberbullying is always wrong – unless it serves the cause of social justice. Then the victims are simply collateral damage in the long march toward a progressive utopia. That message, delivered daily by Twitter mobs and public shaming campaigns, was endorsed by the New York Times on Dec. 26 in a long article headlined “A Racial Slur, a Viral Video, and a Reckoning.” The piece demands scrutiny because it reveals how the news organization that corrupted our nation’s history to claim America is irredeemably racist in its “1619 Project” continues to normalize false assumptions and frameworks to advance leftist ideology.
  • Astronomy Picture of the Day - Jupiter and Saturn Great Conjunction: The Movie

    Today's image is a video at link. Explanation: Yes, but have you seen a movie of Jupiter and Saturn's Great Conjunction? The featured time-lapse video was composed from a series of images taken from Thailand and shows the two giant planets as they angularly passed about a tenth of a degree from each other. The first Great Conjunction sequence shows a relative close up over five days with moons and cloud bands easily visible, followed by a second video sequence, zoomed out, over 9 days. Even though Jupiter and Saturn appeared to pass unusually close together on the sky on...

    2020 has been a great year for the nanny state. Will history see this as the year when disease-fuelled fear when made its greatest advances against the family as social foundation and against personal freedom?

    ....Don’t like it? Don’t worry, said the experts: If you’re feeling a mite lonely after nine months of house arrest in Papillon-like solitary confinement, just throw a rollicking Christmas “social” event in which you stare, all alone, at a computer screen on a Zoom call, as the most ruthless, repressive, imperialist regime on earth monitors everything you say, and then instantly disables your account if you dare to criticize it. (Soon, no doubt, it won’t only be the Chinese government doing the monitoring and disabling, but our own—supposing it hasn’t merged with the CCP by then). House arrest for nine...

    The routine demonisation of men is a disease that has spread across The West. The enormous commitment to good of fatherhood is now belittled as evil patriarchy. This is not so in The East. Pat Buchanan described this self-destruction as suicide of a super power. What went so insanely wrong?

    I’ve watched this video about 100 times today already. A man wearing a face mask and questionable shorts is stalking a woman around a store, demanding that she put on a mask. She very wisely decides to film him and eventually he storms off with righteous indignation. His good deed for the day has been foiled. Facebook will definitely be hearing about this! Thankfully the people watching this unfold took the side of the woman filming and told this man to leave her alone, which he eventually did. Unfortunately this woman’s experience is not an isolated one. All over the...

    RR ^ | 12/3/20 | Mark A. Becker
    “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come” (2 Timothy 3:1). “For men shall be… unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good” (2 Timothy 3:3). Introduction This series is a study examining the societal characteristics of the last days that Paul wrote about in 2 Timothy 3. Admittedly, and not surprisingly, this series might very well be considered offensive to the world. This study is viewed through the lens of the Creator’s revealed character and expectations of His creatures found in the Word of God. The Savior has...

    “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come” (2 Timothy 3:1). “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, …” (2 Timothy 3:2). Introduction This series is a study examining the societal characteristics of the last days that Paul wrote about in 2 Timothy 3. Initially, this four-part series was basically an outline to aid in the teaching of these passages. There’s really nothing earth-shaking or groundbreaking found within this study – at least for the educated believer. We know these verses very well and have been...

    Tennessee Star ^ | 12/2/20 | Stephen Balch
    A decisive moment comes and passes, a fleeting chance for action. People rise to the occasion or not, their measure taken and place in history assigned. We, the citizens of the United States, have reached such a moment. For those who still remember the old republic, the questions it poses are self-evident. Do we make a stand or nervelessly surrender our rights? Do we affirm ourselves citizens—an historically rare and noble title—or do we accept becoming subjects, the fate of most humankind? We might, of course, hope for a quiet subjecthood, one in which our rulers permit us to go...

    The American Mind ^ | 11/30/20 | Matthew J. Peterson
    It is past time to bring the discussion Americans are now having in private into public light. The longer it stays underground and forbidden, the more we risk serious and sudden shocks to our political and cultural life together. Only by having this debate out in public can we hope to resolve the current crisis. When we can’t agree as a people on the purpose of government, or even about what human nature is, the next logical question is: how can we stay together as citizens? What truths, in other words, do we still think self-evident? What is the basis...

    Of greater concern is the presence of a gripping fear that is increasingly controlling the lives and actions of many in our society. We are being infected with and motivated by fear. This phenomenon is only heightened by the uncertainties surrounding the recent elections, and especially the highly charged Presidential race. Fear of possible negative political outcomes only fuels existing fears over the Coronavirus. It is a perfect storm for terrorizing a society. Fear is dangerous because it enters a person and sets up shop within the heart and the mind. It lurks within, ready to seize any opportunity for...

    The American Policy Center ^ | October 28, 2020 | Kathleen Marquardt
    In my previous article, Aufheben der Kultur/Cancel Culture, was this paragraph: Why do Western Culture and Christianity both have to be annihilated? Western Culture represents the reasoning, logical, fair and openminded aspects of our world. Out of Western Culture sprang the United States Constitution, the framework of the nation. And the Christian religious traditions, especially the Ten Commandments, are the underlying pillars of Western Culture. As Antonio Gramsci wrote in his prison notebooks, “Any country grounded in Judaeo-Christian values can’t be overthrown until those roots are cut … Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity … in the...

    On the evening of October 7th, Gale and Marietta Shell, who live about five miles north of Springer, in Colfax County, discovered their young horse had been shot dead sometime between 6:30 and 7:00 p.m. Their property, which faces I-25, and has a large display of pro-Trump flags on large flag poles, could have been a target due to their outspoken support for President Donald Trump and could be a possible reason why their property was targeted. According to Marietta Shell, the corral fence where the young filly, which is valued at $4,500, was located was not visible from the...

    Frontpagemagazine ^ | Oct 13, 2020 | Jack Kerwick
    On a recent episode of the Freedom-Center/Glazov Gang webinar series, Anni Cyrus discussed with Barak Lurie the subject of fear. The episode, 2020: The Year of Fear, couldn’t have been more aptly titled. Lurie identified both the country’s response to COVID-19 (what I refer to as “The Internment”) and the normalization of leftist violence and intimidation for which the death of George Floyd was used as a pretext as the two phenomena that most saliently underscore the primacy of fear in 2020. To his credit, Lurie recognizes that 2020, far from being sui generis, is in fact the most...

    Matt Bracken did an excellent break down of what he believes is probable over the next 3 months yesterday.  I will admit this is scary scenario what he suspects is not only possible but probable.  At the very same time this is very important for everyone to talk about and wargame.  That way Conservatives, Constitutionalists, Patriots do not get caught by surprise, and can counter these moves.  We may be able to stop it if everyone is talking about it.  This 30 minute video is well worth your time.  Thank you Matt for your excellent work and service to our Republic!

    “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!” – Upton Sinclair Part I: Upton Sinclair was describing willful ignorance based upon who butters your bread. The rampant corruption of our society, as power has been consolidated into fewer and fewer hands, has resulted in our political, financial, cultural and economic systems being captured by a billionaire class who use their wealth to dictate the path we are forced to follow – or lose everything. The sociopath class include the Silicon Valley social media titans, the billionaires running the six...
