On May 2, 2011, members of Seal Team Six tracked down and killed Osama Bin Laden in his hideout in Pakistan. Seal Team Six had launched their highly secret special operation by helicopter from Afghanistan. Bin Laden was the Al-Qaeda mastermind of the terrorist air attack on New York City and the Pentagon in Washington that killed over 3,000 Americans on September 11, 2001. Bin Laden was operating from Afghanistan at the time and protected by the Taliban. President Obama and the Defense Department had agreed that Seal Team Six would not be named in press releases. However, a few weeks later, Vice President Biden openly praised Seal Team Six in giving the Obama Administration credit for the operation. The Taliban swore to take vengeance on the United States and specially on Seal Team Six.

Lamb Dealing With Some PeopleThere is another version of the truism expressed in the title to this article, which goes like this:  You can lead a liberal to the facts but you can’t make him think!  It seems logical to ask WHY this troublesome species of American citizens called “liberals” (also known as “progressives”, “socialists”, “maleducated clods”, “non-thinkers”, “left wingers”, and “moonbats”) seem to be so impervious to truth.  Two or three years ago my long-time friends in another state sent me a little tidbit of “truisms” that they had gleaned from the internet.  That article seems to have originated on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and was titled: “Is Logic the Same Thing As Common Sense?”  Let’s look at each of these gems of logical common sense listed therein, and reflect on the degree to which they have made inroads into our society, and whether or not they make “common sense”.   But these amplified comments are mostly my personal biases and beliefs:

It's not news to anyone paying attention that we have a crisis of leadership in America. Our leaders in Washington, starting from the Oval Office on down, have bungled almost everything they have touched since January, often shooting themselves in both feet -- multiple times -- while the American citizenry is stuck paying the medical bills. From the Afghanistan disaster, to the fiasco along our southern border, to the vaccine mandate debacle, to the threatening of parental rights at school board meetings, to the inconceivably massive increase in our national debt, it's more than clear that our leaders are not just failing, they are threatening to bring down the country with them.

On the final day of the Pray Vote Stand Summit, a recurring theme emerged during the morning session amongst the speakers and panelists: it's high time that people of faith step forward and take hold of the reins by fearlessly leading with the truth of God's word.

Going back to the first term of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933, the party of first-term presidents gained seats in House midterm congressional elections only twice.

Karl Rove reminded readers a few months ago in his Wall Street Journal column that, since World War II, the average loss of House seats of the party of each first-term president in congressional midterms is 28.

The largest loss was 63 in the first midterm elections in Barack Obama's first term. This was after Democrats rammed through the Affordable Care Act without a single Republican vote.

While the greens in America, including their champion zealot, President Joe Biden, howl their primal screams over climate change, the rest of the world is turning to coal. The dark stuff. The satanic fuel. But it's back big-time across the globe.

So is old-fashioned petroleum.

Bloomberg reported last week that because of high natural gas prices due to a reduced supply from the United States, Europe is "snapping up coal." It's cheaper now, and compared to wind and solar it's a much more reliable source of power.

Part 2 of Revolution, Civil War, and Separation

Bill of Rights 1544In the past 154 years since the end of the Civil War, many Americans have been taught a dangerous partial truth about safeguarding American freedoms and constitutional republican government. That inadequate partial truth taught in most civics courses and widely repeated in education, media, and government establishments is that the separation of powers vested in the U.S. Federal Executive Presidency, Congress, and Judiciary adequately protect Americans from the abuses of tyrannical government. Most of America’s founding generation had far greater wisdom than this.

On July 4, 1776, thirteen British colonies announced their Secession from Great Britain. In the closing paragraph the signers declare that the colonies are “Free and Independent States.”  The treaty with Great Britain ending the War for American Independence in 1783 actually recognized the independence of thirteen named former British colonies.

Ingrid Bergman

One of the things my wife and I love to do on Sunday afternoons is to listen to recorded sermons from our favorite pastors.  We listen to the current message from our dear local pastor who sends it to us, and then we click onto the D. James Kennedy Ministries website (djkm.org) and listen to several of the messages that this great hero of the faith recorded many years ago (he went home in 2007).  In addition to great Bible exposition, Dr. Kennedy always managed to weave Christian or American or world history into his messages, and they are always fascinating to  us.  He also often admonished his flock to be good citizens, stalwart patriots in the mode of our original Founding Generation.  He was never hesitant to rail against the evils and injustices that our own government was committing against the American people.  To my mind, D. James Kennedy was the sort of shepherd of the flock that all pastors should be, but that so few actually are.
