  • Follow Trump's Money to Moscow

    The phrase "follow the money" is supposed to help explain human behavior, especially in politics. So why has Donald Trump embraced Russian President Vladimir Putin? Why has he denied the evidence of Putin's killing of Russian journalists and dissidents? A savvy businessman, Trump is certainly not dumb. There must be something else to it. Reports dating back to 1987, during the time of the old Soviet Union, reveal that Trump has been seeking business in Russia and attempting to build a "Russian Trump Tower" in Moscow and perhaps other Russian cities. At this particular time in history, with Putin's cronies...
  • Ben Carson Begins Shedding Conservatism Even Before Primary

    Before my fellow conservatives jump immediately to defend Candidate Carson, I would ask that they read the following short column. Some years ago, I became aware of the extraordinary and remarkable career of Dr. Benjamin Carson via the 2009 movie "Gifted Hands" ,a film in which Cuba Gooding, Jr. portrayed the doctor. I even talked about him to my friend and colleague Laurie Roth who, subsequently, interviewed him on her Radio show. Dr. Carson seemed to be an honorable man, conservative and true to his word. However, since he officially began his campaign for the position of POTUS, something appears...

    I knew this day was coming and have even written about it in past years' columns. It was a fait accompli when Barack Hussein Obama entered what was once our White House and only a matter of time until he implemented this Orwellian portion of his program. We are already being called racists if we object to having our country invaded by foreign entities; many of whom are diseased, many gang-banger murderers including the infamous MS-13 Latin gang and Islamist terrorists. So, soon the inevitable devolution into the following will be a reality: If you object to your own death...

    Total overturn of Obamacare would be a complete vindication of the rule of law and a complete disaster for President Obama (as well as for Long's chief rival, Kirsten Gillibrand, New York's junior United States Senator, an enthusiastic Obamacare supporter who should have known better than to vote for it). On April 2, 2012, SILive's Tom Wrobleski reported that a United States Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare is expected soon and "[t]he justices could uphold or overturn the entire law,...strike down the individual mandate only, or strike the mandate along with other provisions" ( That's all true,...
  • Homosexual bigots commit hate crimes, Part 11 -- Vanderbilt University

    09/28/2011 2:46:55 PM PDT · by ReformationFan · 10 replies ^ | Sept. 28, 2011 | Bryan Fischer
    The parade of hate crimes continue. This time the perpetrator is Vanderbilt University which has put five Christian student organizations on provisional status for being, well, Christian clubs. Vanderbilt was founded by the Methodist Episcopal Church in the 1870s, with a donation from philanthropist Cornelius Vanderbilt. Thus, as is the case with 106 of the first 108 colleges and the universities in the United States, Vanderbilt was brought into existence by followers of Jesus Christ. Now his followers are being tagged as homophobic bigots and threatened with expulsion from campus because of their sincerely held religious beliefs. Worse, Vanderbilt has...

    Perhaps the term "bigot" is overused these days, particularly by the libertine left when referring to those of us who oppose the homosexual lobby, which in turn promotes the homosexual lifestyle and same-sex "marriage" and denigrates the traditional family unit. (The homosexual lobby often supports the abortion industry as well.) Yet bigotry does exist — and we orthodox Christians bear the brunt of it. Consider: Abortion and homosexual activists frequently exhibit bigotry toward us. Vicious secular humanists such as Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins frequently exhibit bigotry toward us. And then there's the bigotry exhibited by some Protestants toward Catholics...

    After 9/11, the Administration and many patriotic folks told us not to let the terrorists win. The terrorists' goal was to disrupt our lives and change who we are as a people. We were warned not to change our values and beliefs. America's victory would be that we refused to let terrorism shake us. We were hold onto the values that made us a great nation no matter what the terrorist did. It's been five and a half years since that fateful day. And if America hasn't changed, many in the Republican Party have. On September 10, 2001, the idea...

    The magicians are busy keeping American eyes focused on sleight-of-hand tricks. Much in the media makes little sense. Divisive political games hold center stage which have nothing to do with the good of our country. The mainstream media is ignoring the biggest story of all, besides Islamic Terrorism. The Selling of America. Where is our outrage? Anger at our elite leaders? Where is Congress? Why are they not investigating the ongoing potential and future merger with Mexico and Canada?

    The White House decided to employ a politically-palatable, pundit-prescribed exit strategy with the withdrawal of Harriet Miers. Because of that, Miss Miers is no longer a nominee to the United States Supreme Court, and much of America may believe the Bush Administration's contention that she withdrew over a request for documents. In actuality, she withdrew because her 1993 pro-abortion speech came to light, and that was the straw that broke the camel's back for the great Dr. James Dobson, Senator Sam Brownback, Senator John Thune, and any members of the conservative base who had reserved judgment up to that point....

    The Church is engaged in a battle with secular humanism over the sanctity of human life, marriage, and the place of faith in the public square. Yet, secular humanism is not the only ideology that must be challenged. A far more subtle force threatens our nation's survival and soul. Unchallenged in most churches is the idea that we require a strong federal government to take care of the poor, strictly regulate economic activity, and meet the various and sundry needs we expect of the federal government. The New Idol What the church has failed to recognize is that the State,...

    As we look at renewing the culture in regards to human life, education, and the media, there's one thing that's required of the church more than anything else: repentance. Repentance is more than just saying your sorry, its changing your way of doing things. The Sins of the Church One of the greatest errors of the Evangelical Church is its introduction of consumerism into worship. An usher of one of the Montana's largest churches told me to "Have fun" as I arrived for Morning worship. Of course, wasn't that the cry of David's heart, "Let us go to the House...

    Governor Jeb Bush, R-Florida, was pained to say he had done all he could do legally. Bush said he wouldn't 'break the law' to save Terry Schiavo. Bush wouldn't, couldn't, shouldn't because he is just obeying orders. The Governor of Florida follows orders from a Pinellas County Circuit judge. In matters of life and death. In issues of cruel and unusual punishment. When due process is denied. The Constitution of Florida says The People are sovereign — like kings. The People of Florida vest the supreme executive authority in a governor in their constitution. Unless, apparently, a judge orders otherwise....

    The shocking governmental homicide of Terri Schiavo has many dimensions, twists, and turns--all of which, upon analysis, converge on one inescapable reality: The life of Terri Schiavo is solely in the hands of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. While Terri lies dying by slow execution in a Pinellas Park hospice, Gov. Bush and others have looked mainly to the legislative process for relief--knowing full well that any special law intended to spare Terri's life will likely be overturned or disregarded by unsympathetic courts on the pretext of "separation of powers." Terri's protectors have also appealed repeatedly to the courts themselves to...
