Strictly Personal

on May 6, 2019, 8:06 AM / in Opinion

May 3, 2019, was my 67th birthday. Accordingly, it is time for my annual “Strictly Personal” column. I think it only fair that readers should have an opportunity to learn a little something about the person who writes the words they read. Today’s column is designed with that goal in mind. And since Charley Reese (one of my favorite columnists) […]

America’s Wars Are Way Up; Church Attendance Is Way Down

on April 25, 2019, 8:59 AM / in Opinion

I realize that the vast majority of Christian conservatives will choose to totally ignore this column (just as they do most of my columns), but the stark reality is that under so-called Christian conservative presidents G.W. Bush and Donald J. Trump, America’s wars are way up, while church attendance is way down. And, yes, I absolutely believe there is a […]

The Untold Truth About The Battle Of Lexington

The Untold Truth About The Battle Of Lexington

on April 19, 2019, 7:19 AM / in History

Today, April 19, is rightly identified as “Patriots’ Day.” April 19, 1775, should be regarded as important a date to Americans as July 4, 1776. It’s a shame that we don’t celebrate Patriots’ Day as enthusiastically as we do Independence Day. It’s even more shameful that many Americans don’t even know what actually happened on this day back in 1775. […]

Netanyahu’s Victory Guarantees More War

on April 11, 2019, 9:04 AM / in Opinion

At the time of this writing, reports out of Israel say that Benjamin Netanyahu is narrowly winning reelection as Israel’s Prime Minister. Should Netanyahu go on to win, it would guarantee more war for the United States and the world. No one on the planet personifies war and corruption more than Benjamin Netanyahu. Two years ago, I wrote this: Benjamin […]

News That Most Christian Conservatives Will Choose To Ignore

on April 5, 2019, 11:03 AM / in Opinion

It seems to fall on me to write about pertinent news stories that the vast majority of Christian conservatives choose to ignore. If the news doesn’t do something to glorify Donald Trump, Israel or America’s foreign wars, most Christian conservatives are not interested in it. Nevertheless, here are a few important news stories that need to be covered, the indifference […]

I Was Right About Russia-Gate; And I’m Right About Israel-Gate

on March 29, 2019, 8:35 AM / in Opinion

On January 11 of last year, I wrote a column entitled Collusion With Russia Was Never The Crime. In this column, I quoted an RT.com report that set the story straight about Trump’s collusion: Amid the media hype over Steve Bannon’s comments fueling allegations of collusion with Russia, pundits have overlooked an excerpt from the same book that points to collusion between the […]

My Open Letter To Senators Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Et. Al

on March 22, 2019, 7:52 AM / in Opinion

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin conducting hearings next Tuesday, March 26, on Senate Bill 7, the Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act of 2019—otherwise known as a national “red flag” gun confiscation bill. The bill was introduced in the Senate by Marco Rubio (R-FL). If this gun confiscation bill […]

This Is Deadly Serious!

on March 15, 2019, 8:55 AM / in Opinion

If people who believe in the right to keep and bear arms, not to mention the rest of the Bill of Rights, do not wake up—and I mean NOW—to the fact that the Republican Party in Washington, D.C. (including Donald Trump), doesn’t give a tinker’s dam about their constitutional liberties, those liberties are going to be G-O-N-E, GONE! And I […]

Evangelicals Unwittingly Pushing America Toward Atheism And Paganism

on March 2, 2019, 7:47 AM / in Opinion

The influence of America’s evangelical churches has been in steep decline ever since the two administrations of professed evangelical Christian President George W. Bush at the beginning of this century. Again and again on my radio talk show and in this column, I tried to warn Christians about the way the Bush presidency was distorting Christ’s teaching and how millions […]

Donald Trump, John Hagee, Zionism And The Chabad

on February 15, 2019, 9:53 AM / in Opinion

King Solomon wrote, “Much study is a weariness of the flesh.” (Eccl. 12:12 KJV) I will add that it doesn’t make one a lot of friends either—especially if what one discovers through his studies cuts against the grain of commonly accepted teaching. In my message to Liberty Fellowship last Sunday, I made the point that Zionism is one of America’s […]

Now Trump Is Waging War In Venezuela

on February 7, 2019, 9:51 AM / in Opinion

This column was written before President Trump’s State Of The Union Address (SOTU). Hardly ever is there anything in any president’s SOTU speech worth writing about anyway. As a matter of fact, I never watch a SOTU speech. Never! In the first place, watching the show (and that’s all it is) makes me pure sick—I mean nauseatingly sick. In the […]

An Open Letter To Our Legislators, Judges And Lawmen

on January 31, 2019, 2:07 PM / in Opinion

I know I am speaking for tens of thousands of my fellow Montanans and tens of millions of my fellow Americans when I write what I’m about to write. The “red flag” laws that are sweeping the country violate every principle of liberty upon which our country was founded. There is no due process associated with “red flag” laws. A […]

Declare A State Of Emergency To Build The Wall?

on January 18, 2019, 6:26 AM / in Opinion

During this current partial government shutdown, President Trump has repeatedly threatened to declare a State of National Emergency and use the U.S. military to build his coveted wall across our southern border. And conservatives—even many of the ones I thought had a grasp of the fundamental principles of liberty—are shouting their support. Don’t get me wrong: I have been a longtime […]

Praise for Lee and Jackson

Praise for Lee and Jackson

on January 14, 2019, 6:00 AM / in History, Opinion

This article was originally published in 2011. January is often referred to as “Generals Month” since no less than four famous Confederate Generals claimed January as their birth month: James Longstreet (Jan. 8, 1821), Robert E. Lee (Jan. 19, 1807), Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson (Jan. 21, 1824), and George Pickett (Jan. 28, 1825). Two of these men, Lee and Jackson, […]

Three Important—And Almost Invisible—News Stories As We Enter 2019

on January 11, 2019, 8:07 AM / in National News, Opinion

It seems to fall on me to cover issues that the vast majority of so-called conservatives refuse to discuss. But that’s one reason this column is so popular: I always write from a totally objective perspective, based on my understanding of truth. That will not change in 2019. First, for all of Donald Trump’s (and his Republican cohorts in Congress) […]

The Truth About Trump’s Withdrawal Of U.S. Forces From Afghanistan And Syria

on January 4, 2019, 7:59 AM / in Opinion

As we all know, Donald Trump campaigned on a platform of disengaging U.S. forces from unconstitutional, perpetual foreign wars. However, the first two years of Trump’s presidency was a flagrant disavowal of that campaign promise. Not only did Trump not disengage our forces from these illegal and immoral wars, but, as I have documented, he dramatically INCREASED America’s involvement in these […]

The Birth Of Christ And The Birth Of America Are Linked

on December 28, 2018, 6:15 AM / in Opinion

As we are just two days past the day in which we commemorated Christ’s birth, I am reminded of a quote by John Quincy Adams. On July 4, 1837, he spoke these words: Why is it that, next to the birth day of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day? . […]

God’s Gift To Us

on December 25, 2018, 6:00 AM / in International News, Opinion, Religion

Here is the account of the birth of our Savior as recorded by Saint Matthew: “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make […]

Unto You Is Born A Savior

on December 23, 2018, 6:00 AM / in Opinion, Religion

The birth of the Lord Jesus Christ as told in Saint Luke’s Gospel: And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own […]

Many Pastors And Christians Behaving More Like Herod Than Wise Men And Shepherds

on December 21, 2018, 8:07 AM / in Opinion, Religion

Preachers and Christians in America talk a lot about loving Jesus. They sing songs to Him; wave their hands in the air; pray to Him; and talk about His teachings. And at Christmas time, they retell the story of Christ’s virgin birth, and boys and girls sing songs and put on plays—complete with shepherds and Wise Men. But in reality, […]
