Neither of these guys is a conservative, and yet the conversation is fruitful (HT: Fred): Continue reading

Thanks, Fred. Many of us were dumbfounded when we saw the wider Christian church acquiesce with what was taking place last year. Yes, there were exceptions-- the independent Baptists in North Carolina, John MacArthur, others... It may be time to re-examine and make some course corrections. In fact, we may have no choice but to do so.
I just finished an excellent book written by Erwin Lutzer, the Pastor Emeritus of the venerable Moody Church in Chicago. He had served as senior pastor there for 36 years, and is a reasonably well known speaker and radio commentator within Christian circles. He is widely respected for his life's... Continue reading

Yes, Fred, critical race theory is definitely another topic that justifies a legislative ban in Raleigh-- for state government and for government schools at all levels. I wish they could also ban all the diversity/equity/inclusion forced programs in the public arena AND in the private arena. When they begin talking about these things, they talk about stigmatizing and discriminating AGAINST white people and Christians.
Fred, it is becoming increasingly clear that the NC GOP is not nearly as bold or as conservative as what we are seeing in other states-- on multiple issues. It is really a shame that you have control of the legislature by lopsided majorities and you don't even try to use it.
But it serves multiple agendas, Fred, and therefore it happens. More future socialist voters; cheap labor pipeline for the future; and diluting the power and influence of white Christians. The local Jewish community is pulling off a Trifecta, aided and abetted by the U.S. government.
The news was stunning. The former American Hebrew Academy at the intersection of Jefferson Road and Hobbs might become a site for the temporary housing and processing of migrant children from Mexico and Central America. Apparently the plan is to accommodate up to 700-800 at a time. The contemptible Skip... Continue reading

The data is from a graphic in this Bloomberg article. Some other metro areas in North Carolina lost population also, including Durham/Chapel Hill. Greensboro's response to the riots was to allow damage to take place unchallenged; and to hand water bottles to the rioters. Thank Mayor Vaughan and our identity... Continue reading

We are witnessing a free fall. The Republicans in control of the legislature in Raleigh are supposed to be the conservative alternative to the socialists. They are supposed to be the ones standing up for limited government and Christian morality and liberty. Yet, here we are. We have learned in... Continue reading

It is very interesting that the corrupt mainstream media does not inform us of the facts in this video. One can only conclude they are "in bed" with the communists: Continue reading

Fred, I think if someone has reason to believe they might have been exposed, it would not be unreasonable to do an antibody test. A positive test (or previous illness) would obviate the need to be vaccinated. But as Cooper/Cohen have demonstrated, the left and the institutional entities demanding vaccination might not be satisfied with that. One other point. A simple runny nose or a short-lived cough some might attribute to allergies could be a mild infection. Think about how many people experience this.
One of the recent statements from our exalted dictators in Raleigh is that 66% of the population of North Carolina must be vaccinated before coronavirus restrictions are completely lifted. That is an interesting target for several reasons. The herd immunity threshold for COVID-19 has been estimated to be roughly 70... Continue reading

Alexander F.C. Webster, Touchstone: We seem to have exhausted our vocabulary to describe the constellation of crises of radical left-wing provenance besetting America of late: extreme, unprecedented, extraordinary, unbelievable, outrageous, horrendous, despicable, frightening, ungodly, Orwellian, and so on. There is one word, however, that may capture our centrifugal culture of... Continue reading

His opponents are motivated by Satan, Fred. He defends his position well on TV, but we shall see how far they go with this.
And do it everywhere that was conceivably in contention!

This hurts, but it's true. I am taking the liberty of republishing: Reformation Charlotte: Today, I was startled by an article that caught my attention over at The Federalist titled Illinois Bill Would Force Health Insurers To Buy Babies For Gay And Single People. To be honest, none of this... Continue reading

The episode when FBI agents raided Giuliani's apartment earlier this week brings to mind that the socialists are ruthless with regard to going after their political enemies; while the Republicans are patsies, refusing to prosecute REAL wrong-doing. Where was the Sessions/ Barr Justice Department when the socialists were spying upon,... Continue reading
