Media Neglect and Presidential Betrayal
By David E. Smith   |   04.12.24
While the corporate media is hyperventilating about threats to so-called “abortion rights,” we are hearing very little about the dangerous situation that has been created by the Biden Administration's open borders policy. For example, have you even heard about the illegal immigrant from Lebanon caught sneaking over the border last month? 
Wise as Serpents. Harmless as Doves.
Hard to believe is was four years ago when the dreaded COVID-19 virus scare virtually shut down America. You recall those days, right? Limited groups were allowed in stores. Schools were doing remote learning. Restaurants had restricted space or even outdoor-only seating. Family events were cancelled, including big weddings and farewell funeral gatherings. 
Testing For Truth
I often wonder why I torture myself. Each weekday afternoon, I try to stay somewhat literate in what is happening in our world by watching the evening network news. Most every day, I regret it. 
Christian, Do Your Duty: Vote!
By Rev. Thorin Anderson   |   03.15.24
Every American citizen has, among other things, the right and responsibility to vote. If too many fail to take this responsibility seriously, it allows for a few, with bad intentions, to transform the state into an oligarchy or dictatorship!
Feds Colluding With Corporate America Against Conservatives?
By David E. Smith   |   03.14.24
The U.S. House Judiciary subcommittee recently held a hearing in D.C. in which they focused on the government's use of financial surveillance.

By Kathy Valente   |   03.08.24
There has been a significant increase in illegal Chinese marijuana farms across our nation in the states that have legalized recreational marijuana. Fox News recently reported on illegal growers in California, Oregon, New Mexico, Washington, and Maine, saying, “Chinese Nationals are taking over the illegal pot business.” 
Sweep the Clouds Away
No doubt Elmo had good intentions. The Muppets have filled our homes with plenty of good laughs and good times over the years. The Muppet movies are worth investing the 90 minutes of time to watch the illustrious Kermit the Frog and friends seek a life of fame and fortune. 
Here Come Da Judge!
The seemingly never ending efforts to keep Donald Trump from regaining a return to his temporary residence at the White House got personal in Illiinois this week. The Chicago Tribune alerted us that Cook County Judge Judge Tracie Porter has ruled that the former president should have his name struck from the March 19 Illinois Republican primary ballot.
A Christian Response to “Death with Dignity”
By Brandon Myers   |   02.27.24
The forces of darkness in Illinois want to take the state’s death agenda to the next level. Some deceived politicians have now introduced an assisted suicide—euphemistically referred to as a “Medical Aid in Dying” or “Death with Dignity”—bill in Springfield. A bill sponsored by Illinois Senator Linda Holmes (D-Aurora), SB 3499 creates the “End-of-Life Options for Terminally Ill Patients Act.”
Biden’s New Mandate for Gender Indoctrination
By Alex Newman   |   02.24.24
Under the guise of protecting the “civil rights” of students, the Biden administration unveiled a new regulation purporting to force government schools nationwide to bow before all the invented “gender identities” and sexual perversions that now dominate the “education” system. The rule would also purport to overturn state laws banning males in girls’ sports. 
Grumpy Old Men
Movie buffs will recognize the title of this article as also being the title of a movie from 1993 starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. The two aging retirees were next-door neighbors. Living in Wabasha, Minnesota, the two feuded constantly. While living alone, they seem to find joy in ice fishing, trading insults, and playing practical jokes on each other. 
Illegal Immigrants Overrun ‘Free’ Buildings and Resources Recently Shut Down in Major Cities
By Kathy Athearn   |   02.15.24
Residents in cities across the United States are justifiably upset that their recently closed facilities are now being used by illegal immigrants at no charge to the immigrants. Adding to the frustration, these taxpayer-funded schools, health care clinics, and community recreation centers in low-income neighborhoods have been shut down largely because of city leaders’ fiscal irresponsibility.
Christians, Stop Living Like You’re Lost!
By Rev. Thorin Anderson   |   02.03.24
“Amazing grace! how sweet the sound-that saved a wretch like me!  I once was lost but now am found. . . .” These opening words from John Newton’s famous gospel song acknowledge the reality of our lost condition without Jesus Christ.
Love Story
February has some interesting distinctives. Back in the olden days (when I was growing up), we celebrated TWO presidential birthdays this month: Abraham Lincoln’s and George Washington’s. Now we celebrate only one—a generic President’s Day for our Monday holiday benefit.
