When President Donald Trump reverted back into campaign mode and hit the road this past weekend to fire up the faithful at a rally in Melbourne, Fla., that seemed like news enough, particularly for those who find it odd that a sitting president would do such a thing. Well, it got better. When is the last time you heard a presidential speech in such a setting open with the Lord’s Prayer? That’s how it went down this past Saturday in Melbourne…and, what’s more, this invocation, of sorts, was offered up by none other than the First Lady, Melania Trump. As... Read more →

The Great Inception: Satan's Psyops from Eden to Armageddon - You stand on a battlefield, surrounded by an enemy that you ve been told doesn't exist. This is a classic example of a PSYOP a psychological operation, a mission to change what you believe by feeding you information that is inaccurate, incomplete, or an outright lie. This PSYOP is one of many by entities who ve been at war with God since the Garden of Eden. The Bible calls them gods. God Himself calls them gods. But we've been taught that they're imaginary, so we stumble around the battlefield completely... Read more →

Apparently, Donald Trump has power over practically all things. According to the New York Post, an elite New York City prep school, The Dalton School, was forced to cancel its annual ice skating party because of the rabid anti-Trump sentiment among parents. What does one have to do with the other, you ask? It seems that the party is held at Trump Wollman Rink in Central Park. Yes, that Trump, of course. Wollman Rink had been around for a long time before it began bearing the name of our fearless leader. As for how that came about, the rink was... Read more →

Fearsome international criminal gang Mara Salvatrucha, better known as MS-13, is going someplace to recruit new members that suggests, more than ever, the group means business when it comes to gaining a menacing foothold throughout the 21st century American landscape: Elementary schools. Reporting by Washington, D.C.’s WUSA9 on the recent gang-related murder of 15-year-old Alexandra Reyes-Rivas of Montgomery County, Md. led the news outlet to Jay Lanham of the Northern Virginia Regional Gang Task Force, which is assisting in the investigation of the teen’s murder. “Oh grade-school. They're recruiting in grade-school but generally 5th grade and on,” said Lanham. According... Read more →

Yes, you read the headline right, there really is a bank with no fees. A couple of interesting stories crossed my desk this week. First, as part of her research, a university professor went to work as a teller at a check cashing service. Yep, one of those services that charges you to cash checks. Services like this are used primarily by the so called 'unbanked' population. These folks that don't have a banking relationship are typically viewed as being exploited. As a result, there have been many campaigns to try and 'help' these people by bringing them into the... Read more →

At first blush, working from home seems like the workplace “gold standard” to a lot of folks. But is that really the case? According to Fox Business, a new, comprehensive study from the United Nations, of all places, is suggesting that while working from home clearly has its benefits, it also has the potential to wreak havoc with elements of a person’s health and wellness. Researchers surveyed workers from 15 countries, including the United States, and found that 41 percent of “highly-mobile” employees declared they were suffering from stress in some quantity, while only 25 percent of employees who work...

The Marine Corps is rolling out some new television spots next month, but anyone who has ever paid attention to the Corps’ commercials in the past will notice something conspicuously absent: The iconic recruiting slogan “The Few, The Proud.” So, is this change a bow in the direction of those who take issue with the idea of exceptionalism, particularly American exceptionalism? Not at all, says Lt. Col. John Caldwell of the Marine Corps Recruiting Command, who told the Marine Corps Times that the decision was based on analyses of what is particularly effective when it comes to marketing nowadays. “The...

Noted author and sports journalist Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press, like many Americans, has taken note of the recent displays of disrespect by professional athletes, and, regarding the issue of boycotts of White House visits in particular, says that it’s time to bring that tradition to an end. His reason? Basically, that people have found it impossible to act like earnest, respectful adults in the current politico-social climate, and so events and rituals that demand earnest, respectful behavior should simply be discarded. In fact, when looking at the matter from the standpoint of simple pragmatism, Albom makes a... Read more →

An op-ed piece in The New York Times suggests that sanctuary cities that do no more than refuse to cooperate with efforts by federal authorities to corral illegal immigrants are not doing nearly enough; they should, in fact, change the very way they conduct policing within their communities, so that illegals, or “undocumented immigrants,” find themselves at odds with the criminal justice system with much less frequency than they do, presently. “It’s not enough for cities like New York to declare themselves ‘sanctuaries,’ which simply means that the local police won’t detain noncitizens on the federal government’s behalf. If cities... Read more →

An article over at is highlighting some startling information from the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), information that’s conjuring up awfully bad memories for many people. According to the MBA, delinquencies of Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgages rose in the fourth quarter of 2016, marking the first such upward movement since 2006. FHA-insured loans are typically characterized by less-stringent underwriting standards and lower interest rates, as well as minimal down payments - FHA borrowers need only put 3.5 percent down on home purchases. The MBA’s data shows the FHA delinquency rate for Q4 2016 was 9.02 percent, up from the... Read more →

According to one prominent Christian voice, the power of Donald Trump to fix what ails the country may be more magnificent than just about anyone imagined. The Christian Post reports that when Lance Wallnau, Christian activist and “thought leader,” appeared Tuesday on The Jim Bakker Show, he declared that God worked through Trump in order to deliver “the nation from the spirit of witchcraft in the Oval Office.” “The spirit of witchcraft was in the Oval Office, it was about to intensify to a higher level demon principality, and God came along with a wrecking ball, shocked everyone, the church...

Just yesterday, this space discussed the decision by six (so far) members of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots to forgo any team victory trip to the White House. Today, we have still more discussion of the NFL and politics, because, apparently, they’re just meant to be together nowadays. According to a large number of news sources, including the Daily Mail, three members of a scheduled 12-player delegation set to tour Israel have decided to pull out of the trip because of what they view as unfortunate political implications associated with the visit. Partly organized by Israel’s Ministry of... Read more →

This may be as funny as it is sad. As detailed by a variety of news sources, including Western Journalism, ultra-crude comedian Sarah Silverman (apparently, it is sexist to use the female form comedienne nowadays) embarrassed herself terribly on Twitter Sunday when she very publicly mistook markings used by construction workers and civil engineers to identify the location of underground cables and pipes…for swastikas. That’s right – swastikas. Here is her rather breathtaking tweet (that included a pic of the “offensive” markings): “Walking to get coffee saw these all over a sidewalk in the town I'm in. Is this an... Read more →
