  • A Crisis of Trust

    Irrespective of who puts his hand on the Bible at the January 20th inauguration to take the oath of office as president of the United States, we’re sure to experience a troubling crisis of trust in our divided country. From the election itself to the social media bias, from big tech’s intervention and alleged software manipulation to the mainstream media’s refusal to cover new evidence on election fraud and the Biden family improprieties in dealing with China and the Ukraine, half of America does not believe that Joe Biden is a fairly elected president. The other half believes that all...
  • 'Why should we trust Joe?' Melania tears into Biden, asks 'where were Democrats when looters burned our cities? We need my husband' at NC rally

    Melanie Trump tore into Joe Biden in a speech at her final solo rally in North Carolina, calling the former VP a career politician who apologizes for American greatness, and is a proponent of the radical left's agenda. 'When rioters and looters were burning our cities and wrecking small businesses that belong to hard working families and bring jobs to our communities, where were the Democrats?' she asked the crowd. 'Why should we trust Joe Biden when he suggests he can do a better job? All you have to do is look back on his 47 years in political life...

    Britain could suffer more than 60,000 coronavirus death by July, warns the Daily Mail. But there’s a massive tell in the first sentence of the report: “…leading scientists say.” And there’s an even bigger warning in the second paragraph: “Modelling by researchers at the University of Washington predicted 151,680 people would succumb to the virus across the continent.” Well maybe they will, maybe they won’t. No offence to the University of Washington but when I read the phrase “modelling by researchers” I know we are operating in the realms of purest fantasy. That’s because I’m a climate sceptic and I’ve...

    When Chinese doctors started sharing information about a new SARS-like coronavirus last December, Chinese Communist Party reprimanded them, called them in for questioning, and ordered labs to stop testing samples and to destroy existing samples. Wuhan was not put on lockdown until January 23, almost a month after officials learned of the new virus. As the disease spread around the world, China delayed any policy response for three weeks. Had authorities acted sooner, they could have reduced the spread by up to 95 percent, according to a recent study.China's denial and delay enabled the spread of a deadly virus...

    CENTRAL, La. (AP) — Buses and cars filled a Louisiana church parking lot for another service Tuesday evening as worshippers flocked to hear a Louisiana pastor who is facing misdemeanor charges for holding services despite a ban on gatherings amid the coronavirus pandemic. A few protesters turned out, too, including a man shouting through a bullhorn against those gathering at the Life Tabernacle Church in the city of Central, where pastor Tony Spell has been holding services. Another demonstrator held up a sign reading: "God don't like stupid." Afterward, people began leaving the church, some chatting outside the front doors,...

    K.T. McFarland, conservative politico, pundit, analyst and a former national security figure in President Donald Trump’s administration, told a rapt radio audience just recently that Robert Mueller’s thuggish investigators treated her so poorly, so viciously and so unfairly — trying to get her to cop to crimes she didn’t commit and accuse others of crimes they didn’t commit, either — that she and her husband, minus hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, fled to Scotland to recover and reflect on the New America: the place where civil rights are routinely violated by entrenched, smug bureaucrats.Her story is eye-opening...

    It happens so fast. A brief thought, a whisper really, and before I know it, I’m all twisted in knots. My husband mentions that for the next three months he’ll be out of town on business more than he is home. I look at the dates on the calendar and add them up in my head. My eyes zero in on the longest business trip of them all, and I feel a weight press down on me. I grow weary and exhausted as though I’ve just run a mile.... Fear feeds on forgetfulness. It thrives on our spiritual amnesia, our...

    On Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace spoke with Vice President Mike Pence and said the successful operation is a victory for America. He also questioned the VP on Trump saying he didn’t inform Pelosi in advance, with “the implication seeming to be that Pelosi or members of Congress would leak this.” “Does the President not trust the Speaker of the House with sensitive national security information?” Wallace asked. Pence disputed that was the implication, saying Trump’s “total focus was on a successful mission” and on the safety of the troops.

    Do y'all have three public Figures you can reliably depend on to tell you truth? I rely on Rush Limbaugh, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch and recently, Mark Levin. Of course, I trust the reporting of Sara Carter and John Soloman. Greg Jarrett is another solid guy, along with Andrew McCarthy. Mollie Hemingway is A-1 and totally trustworthy. Of those solidly on our side, Sean Hannity for certain, but Rush is too, Tom Fitton, too, and, Mark Levin is too. In fact, President Trump has gained the respect and support of almost all, if not all, the major conservative...

    Globalism's war against America has reached a tipping point “Who do you trust?” is the foundational question in human relationships. Social relationships, family relationships, business relationships, romantic relationships, intimate friendships, professional relationships, political relationships - human relationships rely on trust. The existence of trust or the absence of trust defines human relatedness. Parents tell their children when they are very young, “Whatever you do don’t lie to me.” Why? Because trust is the foundation of love.

    It now comes down to turn-out numbers. Anyone who plans to stay home will actually be voting for the democrat. Get out and vote only for Republicans Billy Joel once sang, “..the closer you get to the fire the more you get burned, but that won’t happen to us, because it’s always been a matter of trust.” And, likewise America’s 242nd year experiment in self-government, has always been a matter of trust. Our societal framework and the United States Constitution only work when We The People trust our government. Coincidently, we may also know how close any one of us...

    ArticleVBlog ^ | August 27th 2018 | Rodney Dodsworth
    Subtitle: Toward an Annual Article V Convention. To most historians of the 17th Century Stuart era, John Locke’s Two Treatises of Government rationalized the Glorious Revolution of 1688. At least one historian, Peter Laslett, disagrees. To Laslett, Locke’s texts were instead a call for revolutions yet to come. Not only did Locke’s philosophy call for our 1776 revolution, it reaches out to us today . . . but with a twist. Where Locke gave little attention to the nuts and bolts of how a community goes about restoring free government after its dissolution, our Framers provided the solution in Article...

    Over the past six years, Lane Fury has collected more than $185,000 in family money. Eventually, Fury stands to inherit roughly $6 million, but the 27-year-old doesn’t see this good fortune as a positive thing. “I don’t actually want it,” says Fury. “There is this sense of shame or embarrassment, like maybe some of the problems in the world are my fault, so I shouldn’t really be open about [my wealth].” While many people struggle to pay the bills and make ends meet, those lucky enough to have family money say they have problems of their own. Fury says having...

    Who do you trust? Who can we trust? This is an open question, for which I personally don’t have many answers. I ask this at a personal level, societal level, and global level. I’m not a cynical person, but like many I am currently disillusioned and disappointed by what I see as a world in which deceit is acceptable - if it is an ends to a personal means and advances one’s self interest, and a world in which ‘honor’ doesn’t seem to be as valued a concept as I perceive it once was – at least in the abstract....

    Health insurance gets all the headlines, the fierce political battles, the politicians accusing each other of wanting fine, upstanding American citizens to die. But while health insurance may pay your medical bills, it does nothing to protect you from a big risk that all Americans face: that when they get sick, they won’t be able to work, and all the obligations they’ve taken on — the car payments, mortgage, student loans and credit card debt — will send them spiraling into financial catastrophe. What the middle class may need even more than health insurance, in other words, is income insurance:...

    Apple has long inspired an almost religious devotion among customers and tech aficionados — but it just seriously undermined its fans' faith and loyalty. The company on Wednesday acknowledged what some people have long suspected: that it has been secretly stifling the performance of older iPhones. Critics have accused the company in the past, based on anecdotal evidence, of purposely slowing phones to compel users to upgrade to the latest model. While Apple admitted to the practice on Wednesday, it sought to underscore that it had done so for a purely altruistic reason: to prevent older phones from shutting down...

    The proportion of people who say they trust priests to tell the truth has reached an all-time low in Britain, while the number of those trusting politicians and police has risen, according to an Ipsos MORI survey.Only 65 percent of respondents said they trusted priests to tell the truth, according to the survey, conducted among 988 adults last month, The Times reports. Last year, 69 percent had said they could trust clergy, and in 1983, when the annual poll was first conducted, the percentage was as high as about 85 percent.The proportion of those who say they can trust politicians rose...
