Socialism. Mans Attempt to Deny God!
Socialism has never succeeded in any society at any time. From the ancient Egyptians to the Greek and Roman Empires, socialism has always failed. In today’s culture socialistic countries have created a strata of dependence that has literally racked up debt to the point where those countries are teetering on the brink of financial disaster. Look at Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and France. All of those countries are operating at a financial deficit. The United States has also fallen under the spell of socialism and running debt up as though there is no tomorrow. But what is the real motive behind socialism? What is the appeal of socialism? What are the ultimate results of socialism? And, most importantly, what does God’s Word say about socialism? In this article we’ll look at all of those aspects.
But to begin, socialism certainly does not seem to be about financial security as evidenced by the debt in this country and across the globe. This mountain of debt threatens not only the financial stability United States but of the entire world. Let’s look at one example in the US. The United States owes more than a trillion dollars to China, a communist country, who under any other circumstances would be considered an enemy. How can the US be in such debt to a country that outlaws the very things that we hold dear. Religious freedom, the pursuit of our own destiny and all of the things chartered in the Declaration of Independence and provided by our Constitution are literally held in disdain by this communist government. A government whose regard for human rights align only in total compliance of everyone in that country with the will of the government. Those who do not comply completely are enemies of the state and risk death or imprisonment. The sad fact is that the United States, the richest nation in the world, is a debtor country to a communist regime who stands in stark opposition to everything we stand for and believe.
Can Anything Good Come Out of Nazareth or New York City
Jesus began his public ministry by choosing some people to go along with him. Phillip, of Bethsaida, was one of those people. Philip, in turn, reached out to Nathanael and in John 1:45 it says that “Philip found Nathanael and said to him, ‘We have found Him of whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.’” But Nathanaels response was very interesting. In John 1:46 Nathanael said to him, “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?”. Nathanael responded much the way the Pharisees responded to the notion of Jesus being from Nazareth of Galilee. The Pharisees mocked Jesus in John 7:52 “…‘You are not also from Galilee, are you? Search, and see that no prophet arises out of Galilee.’” Perhaps Nathanael was aspiring to be a Pharisee. No one knows but his response to Phillip was, none-the-less, a blanket statement about people from Nazareth. Continue reading

Can we have Muslim Friends?
There has been a lot of debate lately regarding Muslim refugees and the possibility of radical Islamists infiltrating the ranks of those refugees with the intent of doing harm here in the United States. When you listen to the pundits talk the notion that “Moderate” Muslims need to get involved inevitably surfaces. Anyone who has read the Koran (Qu’ran) understands that there really is no such thing as a “Moderate” Muslim. There are those who believe that violence is warranted to bring unbelievers totally under Islamic rule and there are those who choose to use deception to gain an advantage in order to impose the dictates of the Islam on everyone. But make no mistake, either way they believe that everyone must be under Islamic rule. Continue reading
In the cartoon movie Despicable Me, the Nefario Principle, a characteristic of the typical high-powered Shrink Ray, was described by Dr. Nefario to be “the duration of the shrunken state of an object is inversely proportional to the mass of the object.” Nothing could be more applicable in the case of the Hillary Clinton’s nefarious acts hitherto referenced as Clintonous-nefariosa. Yes, Clintonous-nefariosa is intended to sound like an infectious disease. Because the nefarious activities of the Clintons over the years have proven to be more like an infectious disease than a philanthropological inspiration. James McDougal, who went to jail of over Whitewater, described the Clintons as “sort of like tornadoes moving through people’s lives.” I can only imagine the magnitude of the behemoth that will emerge when the mass of the shrunken state of the nefarious deeds exceeds the characteristic duration of the Nefario Principle.

As the current political season begins to unfold and the first republican debate is at our backs. The establishment pundits are incredulous, mostly with fear, because the comfort of their corrupt system is under threat. Their partisan potentates have fallen to the bottom of the list. Their crony candidates have been summarily rejected. The most staggering thing of all is they do not comprehend the degree to which they have been rejected.
The 2014 election was marked by some very interesting things. Joni Ernst snuck up on the establishment and took the Iowa senate seat. But she was not supposed to win. The republicans didn’t have a chance against the Democrat Tom Harkin. No attention was given to this race. But there was another race where the establishment GOP became actively involved. Mississippi! Their crony incumbent, Thad Cochran, was in big trouble. Mississippi senator Chris McDaniel was about to trounce the old GOP hack. The establishment, under the leadership of Mitch McConnell, could not let that happen.
Look at the lengths to which the GOP went to insure that senate candidate Chris McDaniel did not win the primary. Thad Cochran was about to go down in flames. The establishment GOP rallied in support raising over a million dollars the last week of the campaign. But the fight was futile, Cochran was going to be crushed in a landslide. The conservative people of Mississippi were going to send the old GOP establishment crony packing.
Recently, I heard a brief talk by Dr. Benjamin Carson that caused me to sit up straight in my chair. I really could not believe my ears so I replayed the video several times to make sure I hear Dr. Carson correctly. I immediately began to do what he said and read up for myself on the issue. I was struck, in particular, by two things Dr. Carson mentioned.
- The founder of Planed Parenthood was racially biased
The two things really go hand-in-hand. Hitler was heavily into eugenics using the concept to create an Aryan super race. But did you know there was, and apparently still is, a movement in the United States to eliminate those who would burden society? This movement is nothing new. Plato suggested the idea of selective mating to produce a “guardian class”.
A Trail of Tales – Watergate
Watergate – You’re Kidding!
It was the year 1974. President Richard Milhouse Nixon was swirling in the sinkhole of the Watergate scandal. Jerry Zeifman, the general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, was struggling with not only the Watergate scandal but a member of the staff hired to work on the case. This young lawyer, age 27 at the time, was recommended by law professor Burke Marshall. But Zeifman had a problem with a staff member who submitted a brief that, as he put it, “was so fraudulent and ridiculous, she would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.” That young lawyer, Hillary Rodham Clinton (Dan Calabrese finds confirmation of Clinton’s fraud as Watergate attorney).
Thinking about the Fox News Republican Debate 1 last week I can’t help but lose a lot of respect for the Fox anchors. It was terribly sad to see them attack one candidate in particular. It appears that Fox is strongly inclined to the partisanism of the establishment rather than truly fair and balanced reporting and debate hosting to which they claim to subscribe. Someone at Fox should have scrapped many of those questions well before the debate. This is a republic where candidates are elected to support the constituents who elected them not the party to which they belong or the special interests who paid for their campaigns, among other things.

The Agenda and Recent Events
Recent events of serious unrest in Ferguson Missouri have been at the forefront of the media. The Obama administration, underwritten by the mainstream media and black radical groups, has incited outrage over a black man who was shot and killed by a white police officer and have made accusations of racism and injustice. At the same time the administration, and the mainstream media, has been virtually silent regarding the brutal beheading of a white grandmother by a black man in Moore Oklahoma. Most people look at this and shake their heads in disgust wondering how can this be so? How can their be such outrage over a hoodlum killed by a police officer and yet such dispassion about a completely innocent grandmother who was brutally beheaded in her place of work? Considering the series of events that have occurred since Barak Obama became president, it seems to call into question the fundamental character of the administration.
