Many constitutional and social conservatives are understandably upset after Trump capitulated to the Democrats, agreeing to reopen portions of the government for three weeks without acquiring funds for a desperately needed border wall. Trump’s intelligence insulting excuse only added more gasoline to the wildfire, claiming that he needed to reopen the government due to federal workers being financially hammered by the partial shutdown. The truth is that there is more to this than what the President, Republicans, Democrats, the Enemy of the People (the mainstream media, which includes Fox News) and the pundit class are disseminating.

The simple answer is an emphatic “No”. However, in an age where simpletons have been indoctrinated to ignore evidence, substance and context, the answer requires elucidation.
Unless the reader has been living in complete isolation during the last few days, he has become aware of the mass hysteria centered on President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. According to the legacy media and many other subversives within and without government, Trump’s meeting with Putin and his subsequent remarks during Monday’s press conference are proof positive that he is a traitor, a reincarnation of Benedict Arnold.

It’s been a few days since Kanye West shocked the Cultural Marxist establishment by both declaring that he finds commentator Candace Owens’ declarations to be interesting and posting a picture where he is shown wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. Being that miss Owens is of the political persuasion that is almost entirely scorned by American celebrity culture, those that belong to it have vociferously denounced West with the intention of shaming him into retracting his statements.

It was reported a few days ago that more than 50 “pillars of evangelicalism” had been invited to a private gathering at Wheaton College. When asked what the intention of the event was, Doug Birdsall, an organizer of the exclusive meeting, answered somewhat candidly:
“When you Google evangelicals, you get Trump…When people say what does it mean to be an evangelical, people don’t say evangelism or the Gospel. There’s a grotesque caricature of what it means to be an evangelical.”
Another organizer of the assemblage, Darrell Bock (director of “cultural engagement” at Dallas Theological Seminary), described the get-together using much more intentionally ambiguous terminology:
“It is an attempt to try and show how we should be thinking in such a way that our theology is what is the central concern versus our political commitments…We have some people who are going to be doing some presentations about how they see the current situation and we are going to talk about it…The concern is with the church expressing itself clearly about its theological commitment and its theological character in the midst of the environment we are in. Part of the point of the meeting is to have a conversation to see where we are and if there is agreement on how to proceed.” [Emphasis mine.] Continue reading
Although many Christians have severe differences of opinion with President Trump over certain policy positions, his decision to move the US’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem shouldn’t be among them. Understanding the soteriological and prophetic importance that the nation of Israel is for Christianity, the move ought to have made believers giddy. However, this hasn’t happened among many who denominate themselves Christ followers. Why? Continue reading
The public boycotts have been mounting, justifiably and encouragingly so, against organizations that insist on supporting immoral thought and behavior either directly or indirectly.
First it was Target, after they announced that their bathrooms and fitting rooms would be open to “transgender” persons. Then it was Shakespeare in the Park, depicting what a Trump assassination would look like if interpreted along the lines of Julius Caesar. It has culminated with the NFL and its insistence that players be allowed to disrespect our national anthem and Old Glory. Continue reading
Trump is craftier than most people are willing to admit. Behind the veneer of feeble language – which some misjudge as evidence that he is an imbecile – he demonstrates a proclivity for playing both sides of the political spectrum. Yet, even with that astuteness, he often manages to proclaim the truth which many wish to omit or cowardly desist from speaking out loud. It is in this vein that Trump has effectively given voice to what many are thinking about professional sports, their ignorant athletes and their sanctimonious and ignorant public stances.
During a campaign rally for incumbent senator Luther Strange in Alabama, Trump deviated off-script (as he often does) to loquaciously appeal to the attendees’ patriotism by denouncing the NFL’s tolerance for its players kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner. (Do remember that this entire charade was commenced by Colin Kaepernick, the now unemployed quarterback who latched on to the racist Black Lives Matter motif in an attempt to self-servingly salvage his career.)
