    MEDIA ADVISORY, Aug. 25, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- In the Bible, Exodus 18:21 teaches Christians when picking leaders to "select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness." David Jeffers, author of "Understanding Evangelicals: A Guide to Jesusland" (, in his latest video ( says such a man is Ted Cruz. "Ted Cruz has already shown his willingness to defend Christian's 1st Amendment rights, that he will stand for truth by calling the leader of his Senate caucus a liar, and that he will stand against what Cruz calls 'the Washington Cartel.'" Jeffers...
  • CNN's Gloria Borger Responds to Michael Steele by Insisting GOP Looks Like 'the Confederacy'

    Is there any political caricature more threadbare than casting the Republican Party as "the Confederacy?" CNN analyst Gloria Borger tossed that one on Thursday, with all its pejorative assumptions about hidden or not-so-hidden racial animus, noting New England states had no House Republicans.

    A few months ago, another Civil War blogger mocked my contention that the South remains the last great bastion of Judeo-Christian conservatism in the United States, even though poll after poll shows that to be the truth - the South is still the "Bible Belt." Now comes this story . . .

    Win or lose, some liberal pundits seem constitutionally incapable of civility toward conservatives. Four years ago, the people and states that reelected George W. Bush were branded en masse as “dumb” and as ignorant denizens of “Jesusland” — the kind of stereotyping supposedly only Republicans engage in. Bush won 31 states in that election, encompassing most of the interior of the continental U.S., over intense — some might say deranged — liberal opposition, and so perhaps their being sore losers was somewhat understandable. But even in victory liberal commentators can’t seem to show any class; now the slander of the...

    I have a BA in journalism, and over time have kept in touch with a number of people who are still working in that profession. So when one of them emailed me the following about the atmosphere in today's newsrooms, I wasn't surprised at all. This person does offer some hints at the end on how to push for more fairness in your local coverage: .... It's unbelievable here. I've been through a few election cycles and have gotten pretty used to the open sneering every time a Republican candidate appears on the television, but this year is unlike anything...

    MEDIA ADVISORY, Jan. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- While Senator Fred Thompson is attending to his mother in Tennessee, many in Jesusland are still working hard for Fred, according to David Jeffers, author of Understanding Evangelicals: A Guide to Jesusland. "Many Floridian evangelicals, especially in the Panhandle, are still on fire to bring Fred a Florida victory." Jeffers says while much speculation swirls inside the media bubble on Thompson remaining in the race, the author will be busy all week making phone calls for Fred. "I want Florida values voters to know that Fred not only supports the all-important social issues...

    Senator Fred Thompson is far and away the best conservative candidate to represent those who live in Jesusland, according to David Jeffers, author of Understanding Evangelicals: A Guide to Jesusland. "Evangelicals are looking for a candidate who is strongly pro-life, is for traditional families, and who is an actual Reagan Conservative." Jeffers explains, "Every GOP candidate is espousing Reagan-like characteristics, but only Thompson has the record to back it up." Jeffers claims that many in Jesusland are enamored with Governor Mike Huckabee because of his Southern Baptist roots and strong social conservative values. "There are three important agendas in the...

    The other day, the guy on my local radio station mentioned that The Passion of The Christ was the Number One movie in America. ‘So congrats to Mel Gibson,’ he said. ‘And it’ll probably hold on to the Number One slot until the new Starsky & Hutch opens.’ It’s always useful to keep things in proportion. But, in fact, Starsky & Hutch opened and The Passion cleaned its clock. Last weekend, it took in $51.4 million, as against S&H’s $29.05 million. By then, The Passion’s total gross was up around $212 million. Pace my radio guy, mid-Seventies nostalgia is no...

    PoliPundit ^ | January 8, 2005
    Here’s a plan for 2008. Suppose a Democrat wins a close presidential election. But the House and Senate are still very likely to remain in Republican hands. The GOP could then challenge the electoral vote certification, just like the Democrats did this year. The Republican majorities in the House and Senate could then decertify the electoral votes of narrowly-won blue states (they’d certainly have more grounds for claiming fraud than the Democrats did this year.) A Republican president would thus be elected.Why not? As they’ve demonstrated in 2004, Democrats would certainly do all of the above if they had a...
  • European Secular Madness vs Judao-Christian Values

    In "Better Answers: The Case For Judao-Christian Values," Dennis Prager said....."There is an epic battle taking place in the world over what value system humanity will embrace. There are essentially three competitors: European secularism, American Judeo-Christianity and Islam. I have described this battle in previous columns." Under the aegis of European secularism, Americans have been lured and seduced into liberating themselves from the social constraints of America's traditional Judao-Christian moral ethics, which served as both eternally unchanging moral anchor and as the anchor to objective reality. "This much needed liberation," we were told, "is a sign of social enlightenment."...

    New HampshireAs in previous years, Planned Parenthood has been selling greetings cards for abortion proponents filled with seasonal cheer to send to each other: ‘Choice On Earth’, they proclaim. I can just about understand being a proponent of abortion; I find it harder to fathom someone whose obsession with the subject extends to sending out holiday cards on the theme. Especially as, insofar as the Christmas story is relevant to this question, it’s a season to reflect on the potential of every new life. Two thousand years ago, if a betrothed woman such as Mary became pregnant by a man...

    I have been in touch with Democratic friends in Washington over the past few days to see what stage of mourning they have entered. We are told there are, what, four, five stages of mourning? Well, whatever the number, my friends are in the stage where the victim is really, really ticked off. (There is another word that is far more appropriate than "ticked" but the Justice Department probably reads these blogs, so the homogenized version will have to do). For those mentally healthy Democrats who are ready to put conspiracy theories behind them and start preparing for the next...

    Twenty-four hours after the dramatic U.S. presidential-election results were validated, Human Events Online published my essay (which I had been hatching for two weeks), "Declaration of Expulsion," a slightly satiric proposal to kick out of the Union the 12 most liberal states, either to join the People's Socialist Dominion of Canada or, on their own, go straight to Hell. Within hours (and I do not claim that my piece was a causal effect), liberal voices formed into an enthusiastic chorus for roughly the same idea: Democrat gurus Lawrence O'Donnelland Robert Beckel, as angry talking heads on two separate TV news...

    Washington Times ^ | 11/09/04 | Joseph Curl
    Secession, which didn't work very well when it was tried once before, is suddenly red hot in the blue states. In certain precincts, anyway.      One popular map circulating on the Internet shows the 19 blue states won by Sen. John Kerry — Washington, Oregon, California, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Maryland and the Northeastern states — conjoined with Canada to form the "United States of Canada." The 31 red states carried by Mr. Bush are depicted as a separate nation dubbed "Jesusland." The idea isn't just a joke; one top Democrat says, "The segment of the country that pays...

    You have probably heard the idle chatter: ''I'm thinking of moving to Canada." You may have received the JPEG Sent 'Round the World, labeling the northern part of North America -- the right-thinking part, as liberals would have it -- as the United States of Canada, and the pro-Bush leaning ''red" US states as Jesusland It sounds so alluring. Good beer. Cheap Viagra. Hardly any crime. Friendly, if somewhat ineffectual, people. Terrific, if underappreciated, novelists. (This means you, Rohinton Mistry.)

    There's something in the water. That's my take. Something in the water caused the liberal left to lose big-time on election night 2004. Sneak a peek at our electoral map of the U.S. Blue states voted for Kerry. Red states voted for Bush. Blue states are all bordered – at least on one side – by large bodies of water. And we all know the color of the sea is blue. Consider the left-tilt of the Nor'easters. New England overwhelmingly voted for the Loser. Again. And New England sits on the Atlantic. Pennsylvania and New York share lots of water...
