With recent polling showing some significant vulnerabilities in President Trump’s popularity, the prospects of an easy road back to the White House just became much more complicated.

While Trump’s deep base of loyalists will remain at full volume right up until election night, there is a rattling even among ardent supporters that should make most conservative pundits nervous.

There are certainly concrete achievements that can be pointed to in order to bolster the image of the President as a “doer and accomplisher”; these are the things that most Trump supporters point to quickly as a shield against frontal attacks.

As the new 2019-2020 school year swings into action, many parents are thrilled to have their children back in their seats at government operated schools. This of course frees parents up during the day to pursue their own personal interests, or in some cases, economically helps them not to have to pay for summer child care.

The novel was promptly published on March, 20, 1852, and immediately met with tremendous success and acclaim. Mrs. Stowe met with President Abraham Lincoln in the White House on November 25, 1862.

As we discovered in Parts 1 & 2 of this article, the Christian missionary named John Birch lived a short but incredibly dedicated and adventurous life.  Back in the 1930’s, hundreds of faithful Christians from many denominations devoted part or all of their lives to missionary work in the large and chaotic country of China.  John’s parents were part of that dedicated band, and as soon as he was trained and prepared, he also became one of them.

The one thing that Jesus-followers have going for them that nobody in any religion has is the love of Jesus.

Jesus is the Rock, the common ground of all who know Him, love Him and name Him as Savior and Lord. Despite all of the fussing about stupid stuff – hair, music, dress, associations, etc. – that we may do down here, when it’s all said and done, if we’re His, we’re family. And that’s what we should all focus on.

The more I see, the more I hear, the more certain I am that we who were born into the Greatest Generation have failed to pass on the elements of culture that created that generation and made it the Greatest. We refer to this current generation as the millennials. Do we know what that term means? It seems to me they think they are people replacing the past millennium and it is their duty to tell us how we are to live the next millennium. Their big problem is, in attempting to show us how smart they are, they are revealing their stupidity and their total lack of common sense. It seems that Washington might be spreading that disease; I’ve noticed a lot of smart people who go there seem to lose their common sense pretty quick.
