Should Christians Support Donald Trump!

I would not vote for Donald Trump as my pastor but I would vote for him for President if the alternative is Clinton, Biden, or Sanders. To not vote for anyone under that circumstance is insane. Trump has proved that he is no “flash in the pan” but a viable candidate for the Republican nomination […]

Crimea and Ukraine: a Tragedy Like the Charge of the Light Brigade!

Crimea, surrounded by the Black Sea, hangs like a diamond from the southern end of Ukraine. It has historic ties to Russia but was an independent republic until annexed in 2014 as part of the Russian Federation after a dubious referendum. Russia’s maritime fleet has been stationed in Crimea for decades. Almost 30 percent of […]

Mr. President, You Are Wrong, Many Religions Kill Innocent People!

It may seem presumptuous, proud, and far from prudent for me to correct President Obama but I doubt if anyone else will do so, so I will. Obama was wrong, very wrong when he said in his speech, “Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ No religion condones the killing of innocents. […]

Modern Visigoth in the White House: Barbarian Bent on Destruction!

The civilization of a thousand years could see the handwriting on the wall: the brutal barbarians were at the gates of Rome and collapse was imminent. In 410 A.D., Rome collapsed as the city of the Caesars fell to uncivilized, uneducated, uncouth barbarians. With the collapse of Rome, a chill went throughout the civilized world. […]

Obama–Islam Did Nothing in the Founding of America!

President Obama made an outrageously false declaration when he said, “In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” Those are the words of a fanatic, a fool, or a fraud! Sorry, […]

Send Marines to Rescue Americans!

I’m perceived as a hawk although I’m really a cross between a hawk and a dove! I believe in “just wars” as espoused by Augustine of Hippo and extended nine hundred years later by Thomas Aquinas. Few people know that the first example of a just war was Abraham who led his army of 318 […]

What Does a President Have to do to Get Impeached?

The U.S. Constitution provides for the removal of a sitting president through impeachment because our founders knew that all men have a propensity for evil. The first president to be impeached was Democrat Andrew Johnson who became president upon the death of Abraham Lincoln. Johnson had removed his Secretary of War from his cabinet thereby […]

Stay out of Syria: All Factions are Thugs, Thieves, Tyrants, or Terrorists.

Each Wednesday I publish an earlier column that I hope will be instructive, informative, inspirational, and at times, infuriating. The following timely column was first published in June of this year: Syria is a maniacal, murderous, malodorous mess that should alarm the U.S. but not activate us. It calls for our attention but not action. […]

Shut Down Government if Necessary!

Each Wednesday I publish one of my earlier columns that I hope will be informative, instructive, inspirational, and sometimes infuriating. The following was first published in 2010: Republicans are giddy with their recent success at the polls and have the opportunity to effect the greatest change in a hundred years. But don’t count on it. […]
