Trump Debate Mic Rigged?

WASHINGTON — The Commission on Presidential Debates revealed in a one-sentence statement Friday that Donald Trump’s audio was impacted earlier in the week. “Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” the commission said in a statement. No other details were immediately made available. Trump complained earlier in the week that his microphone wasn’t functioning properly at Monday’s debate. via fox6now.com Well, there you have it. I guess the conspiracy theorists were right after all about Trump's microphone being rigged. James L. Paris Editor-In-Chief ChristianMoney.com Follow Me on... Read more →


For all of the mixed reviews Donald Trump’s Monday night debate performance received, none of them seemed to diminish any of the enthusiasm of his supporters when he showed up in Florida on Tuesday for what turned out to be a rousing campaign rally. The day after the showdown with Hillary Clinton, while she was largely “missing in action,” Trump was right back on the campaign trail, moving full steam ahead in his effort to win the White House. His first major appearance after the debate was at an event in Central Florida, where many thousands filled an aircraft hangar... Read more →


A high school teacher from Long Island, Veronica Welsh, landed in some hot water recently when, through her personal Facebook page, she referred to some students at her school as “racist” for donning pro-Trump garb during “Spirit Week” at Smithtown High School West (Smithtown, New York). Here is the exact wording of her entry, which has since been taken down: “This week is spirit week at Smithtown H.S. West. It's easy to spot which students are racist, by the Trump gear they're sporting for USA day.” According to reporting by Gateway Pundit, the superintendent of the Smithtown Central School District...

A non-profit group that has received favors from the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), including a free membership that entitled its officials to rub elbows with world leaders, issued its top rating Thursday for the Clinton Foundation. Charity Navigator awarded the Clinton Foundation four-stars based on an rating algorithm that scored the controversial non-profit with a 97.5 on financial issues and 93 on accountability and transparency. The new rating represented a boost for the foundation, as Charity Navigator had previously put it on its watch list due to concerns about its finances and transparency. But the four-star rating had hardly been... Read more →


Say what you want about Texas Governor Greg Abbott – it is awfully difficult to doubt his sincerity when it comes to preserving the sanctity of life. Abbott has long done what he can to be a thorn in the side to abortion providers, and his latest effort to that end is, admittedly, a strong one. Back in July, rules were quietly proposed by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (THHSC) that would require the burial or cremation of fetal remains, regardless of the gestation period, and also without regard to whether the remains come to exist as the...

Gary Johnson, Libertarian Party candidate for president, once again demonstrated why, although I count myself a libertarian in philosophy, I cannot bring myself to take seriously any of the representative party candidates. One of the biggest problems with many Libertarian Party candidates, of late, is that they sound an awful lot like globalist Democrats and liberal Republicans. I’ve covered that before, so I won’t dwell on it here. The other reason I struggle with these folks is that they so often say things, and have ideas, that make them sound like absolute fruitcakes. To wit: Johnson appeared on ABC’s This... Read more →


Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf, now the central figure in a national outrage over the company’s creation of fake customer accounts, will likely see hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation, even if he is forced to leave his position, reports CNNMoney. It’s not that Stumpf would realize such a sum on the basis of a generous termination package typically handed out to departing company officers - known as a golden parachute - but, rather, from the accumulated value of the stocks, options, and various bonus awards earned in the nearly-35 total years he has worked at both Wells Fargo...

Robin Roberts, anchor over at ABC’s Good Morning America, was interviewing President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama from the brand new National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. this past Friday, when she broached the subject of the Charlotte, North Carolina riots. In asking the president his thoughts about what was taking place there, she did it in this way: “What we have seen recently in Charlotte, North Carolina, young people rising up and showing their frustration in a different way. When you and the rest of the world sees that, what goes through your... Read more →

On this episode Jim shares why he believes that this is the most important presidential debate of our lifetime. Also, you will be surprised to learn that this former NBA star may be on the verge of bankruptcy, is embezzlement a crime that pays?, Jim spends an evening with Wayne Newton in Las Vegas, another Catholic diocese uses bankruptcy to protect assets from claims of sexual abuse, and would you pay a $450 annual fee for this credit card?

Huh? Once again, a new school year is upon us, and, with it, a new and improved round of lunacy, courtesy of education “professionals” who may have just a little too much time on their hands. According to an article over at CNSNews.com, school districts in the “hundreds,” all across the United States, have taken some sort of pledge that embraces the spirit and ideas of a campaign created by the National Association for Bilingual Education and the Santa Clara County, Calif. Office of Education (SCCOE) called “My Name, My Identity: A Declaration of Self.” It is essentially a “call... Read more →


I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Whatever you think of Hillary Clinton, she IS transparent about who she is and what she’s about. Oh, I’m not talking about whether she is “honest,” in the garden-variety sense of the word; I think we all know the answer to THAT. I’m referring to her general ideas, her policies…her vision for the future of the country. That’s why there should be nothing surprising, in terms of Clinton’s known ideology, about her wish for an estate tax rate so high that the mere mention of it should be against the law....

When you’re dealing with heavily agendized people, you go into those interactions assuming they will be distinctly partial to their interests, but that they will nevertheless allow for their perspectives to be informed by at least a modicum of common sense. Well, apparently, THAT isn’t true. The website Mediaite reports on an exchange that took place this past Thursday between CNN’s Carol Costello and Corine Mack, the president of the Charlotte, N.C. chapter of the NAACP, wherein it appears that Ms. Mack is so driven to see realized a narrative favoring Keith Scott, that she is willing to take full...

The website Western Journalism is reporting on something awfully cool. Back in 1970, during excavations taking place in En-Gedi, Israel, where lived a sizable Jewish community from roughly 800 B.C. to about 600 A.D., a burnt scroll was discovered. It turns out that the community was wiped out by a fire. Anyway, the scroll has always looked to be like a lump of charcoal, and, as such, has not been able to be read by anyone…until now. Scientists at the University of Kentucky, using a technique they developed known as “virtual unwrapping,” which allows for an examination of the scroll’s... Read more →
