Hillary & the Seared Conscience

The Scriptures tell us how people can develop a seared conscience. It comes from committing a sin so often that, after a while, it no longer bothers the person committing the sin. The sin itself becomes part of that person’s character. We see two outstanding examples of this phenomenon in both of our principal presidential candidates, but Hillary Clinton’s propensity for unremitting lying has been getting most of the attention lately . . . and shall I say finally? Nearly… Read more »

When the Weird Becomes Normal

Let’s get down to the basic facts here. Bruce Jenner is still Bruce Jenner. He may call himself Caitlyn, but he’s only given a man a woman’s name. He may look different now, but the changes to his sexuality are external only. Neither is he brave or courageous for doing what he has done, no matter what ESPN decides. In fact, he is going with the flow now, since everyone in the elite circles, including his former wife and his… Read more »

The Inevitable Hillary

The Hillary Clinton campaign is in stall mode, keeping her from the public and hoping that all the negative stories will somehow magically disappear. Of course, they have reason for hope, given the state of the mainstream media, but so far, it’s not happening. The polls are rather disturbing for her, with one indicating only 25% believe she is honest and trustworthy. Frankly, I’m surprised she would poll that high on that subject. It’s really kind of laughworthy (if that’s… Read more »

The Comedy News Network

One more Brian Williams post, and then I’m done with it. For now. I think. If I were a news anchor, watched and trusted by millions of Americans, and I totally made up stories about myself and the news I’m covering, do you think I should lose my job permanently? Yes, me too. However, NBC decided on a six-month suspension without pay. Really? How many Americans are foolish enough to watch someone again with that kind of track record? Or… Read more »

The Williams-Clinton Connection

Everyone (except, of course, most of the mainstream media) is still talking about the outrageous stories Brian Williams has told about his time in Iraq. There are other accounts circulating now as well, particularly about some of his claims of what he saw and experienced when he was on the scene for Hurricane Katrina. It appears that stretching the truth (the polite term for lying) may be a habit for this former (?) newsman. Yet, because we suffer as a… Read more »

Return of the Phony “War on Women”

Politicians from all countries throughout all ages have lied. That’s nothing new. Neither is it unexpected. The power that comes with political position brings all latent arrogance/pride to the surface more easily perhaps than other professions. While lying is pandemic (one of the Ten Commandments forbids giving false witness), some politicians have taken the practice to a higher level. Take the Obama administration and the Democrats as a whole, for example (you knew I was going there, right?). To what… Read more »

Clintonspeak vs. Obamaspeak

Keith Koffler, a veteran White House reporter who nows hosts the website White House Dossier, recently commented on the nature of the lies being told by the Obama team, from the president himself through his various cabinet officials and on down the line. He said, God help us. And I used to think Slick Willie was bad. But nothing prepared me for this group. At least spin us the old fashioned way, you know—a little obfuscation, some misleading information, a… Read more »
