Scoffers Are Gonna Scoff!

SCOFFERS GONNA SCOFF
By Karen Rene’ Pryer
From the web site: And We Know, July 21, 2021
“Scoffers gonna scoff at us—This is no surprise.
When heads are buried in the sand—denial is demise!
Conspiracies are rampant And the truth is hard to find,
But even when you find it, No one backs you from behind.
The world rejected Jesus As the world rejects us now.
The truth is viewed as crazy, And is misconstrued somehow.
But when we stand up to the world And lift our voices high—
The love of Jesus radiates The truth we testify!
When scoffers come a scoffing—To tell you you’re insane—
Just know your toiling for the truth Will never be in vain!”
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness, which are in the high places”. - Ephesians 6:12, 1599 Geneva Bible
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” - Ephesians 6:12, New International Version

Why Isn't Biden to Blame for COVID-19 Deaths?
- By David Harsanyi
One of the most morally revolting talking points taken up by Democrats in their effort to deflect attention from President Joe Biden's deadly incompetence in Afghanistan is to minimize the deaths of 13 troops in Kabul, Afghanistan, by pointing out that more people are dying from COVID-19 every day.
First of all, if we use the standards that Democrats set during the Trump years, those COVID-19 deaths are also the responsibility of Biden.

Corporate Social Justice Programs Don't Work
- By Star Parker
According to a new report from The Washington Post, America's corporations have committed "at least" $49.5 billion to the cause of "racial justice" since the George Floyd murder last year riveted our national attention on race.
This amounts to a little over $1,100 for every Black man, woman and child in America.
Or, from another perspective, about $16,500 for every Black household earning $25,000 or less.
But we're not talking about corporate America, despite their deep concern for racial justice, just simply giving black Americans cash. As much as they undoubtedly care about these Black citizens, they would never trust them to just take the money and spend properly.

If We Soak the Rich, Will Everyone Get Wet?
- By Stephen Moore
President Joe Biden describes his $3.5 trillion spending scheme as a way to improve the economy and "build back better."
The intention is a good one, but at its core, this plan isn't so much about growing people's wealth as it is redistributing it. The goal is to make the economy not more prosperous but more equitable -- fairer.
The multitrillion-dollar spending plan offers lower-income and even middle-income people truckloads of free things: health care, dental care, food, pre-K, child care, rental assistance, student loan forgiveness and free community college. And we know that Americans love freebies.

Why it's important to understand the "privileges and immunities" & "due process" clauses of the US Constitution
- By Joanna Martin, J.D., "Publius Huldah" or "PH"
Someone asked me why I write on the US Constitution when the US Supreme Court won't enforce it.
This is why: Our Declaration of Independence recognizes the self-evident Truth that Rights come from GOD, and that they are unalienable. Accordingly, there are certain areas of your life which are off-limits to government regulation - you have an "immunity" from governmental regulation of these areas.
But since all Branches of the federal government, and many State governments are refusing to recognize our Rights, it falls on us to vigorously assert our Rights, defend them, and insist on them. You have no lawful, moral, or religious duty to submit to a government when it violates our Constitution and which is seeking to take from you the Rights which the Creator God gave you. No human has the right to take from you a Right which God gave you.

Afghanistan and American Immigration Policy
- By Mike Scruggs
Sharia and the Need for Rigorous Immigration Vetting
I agree with those who believe we have a shared responsibility for the safety of the Afghans who helped American and NATO forces in Afghanistan. The Taliban is cut from the same cloth as ISIS and al-Qaeda. They are among the most radical and violent of all who embrace Sharia (Islamic Law). Abandoning those Afghans who were sincerely trying to help us to these cruel jihadists would be a moral disgrace. Yet admitting immigrants from Afghanistan and other countries dominated by Sharia Law culture poses a formidable risk of jihadist infiltration endangering lives and democratic institutions. There is a need for rigorous immigration vetting and creative international resettlement solutions.
Islam is a total worldview, and Islamic Law is a legal system encompassing every aspect of Muslim life—religion, politics, government, war, criminal and civil law, business, family, food, dress, social, culture, absolutely everything. In predominantly Muslim nations governed by Islamic Law, criticizing Islam or Islamic Law can invoke the death penalty. Islamic Law is fiercely anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-democracy, and anti-Western.

Where Were You When…?
- By W.H. Lamb
One advantage of attaining the status of “senior citizen” (or “old geezer” as some describe us) is that we’ve stored a whole lot of history in that remarkable computer tucked away inside our skulls. Some of us seem to lose the ability to “retrieve our memory files” as we age, but I’ve been blessed with a still fairly intact memory bank that goes back pretty far (I’ve traded good memory at age 84 for lots of back, leg, and shoulder pain, and a bit of heart trouble, but I consider that to be an acceptable trade off).
Many remarkable, history making, joy inducing, grief causing, incredulity testing, and just plain ‘what in the world happened’ events have affected all of us who have advanced beyond mere “puppyhood”. Lots of “experienced citizens” I talk with frequently can remember events in their lives that go way, way back. My earliest memory, I think, goes back to the winter of 1940/41, when my beautiful late 20’s mother pulled her just-turned-four year old son (me) on a sled out in a snowstorm around the neighborhood where we lived in Lakewood, Ohio (a suburb of Cleveland). I can still recall the joy we both seemed to feel during that chilly outing. I remember that it was almost dusk, and I can still see her breath in the cold air and still feel the snowflakes hitting my face. I recall that she spoke with me; I only wish I could remember what she said. I have some memories of sitting in a “high chair”, probably long before that memorable sled ride, but the dates elude me.
