  • A survey of teenagers released this week reveals they average eleven hours per day in front of a screen: smartphone, television, gaming. Most of the television time is spent streaming via Netflix. Top apps are Instagram and Twitter. Top presidential pick: Bernie Sanders.
  • Hard to imagine how the Hillary Hoax could get worse. Now the FBI says that there are emails so classified and so damaging that they cannot be released even with redacting. This is most likely because the information is coming from human agents and releasing the emails would endanger not only their lives and others lives, but it would damage the methods, means, and infrastructure we use to gather that intelligence. Again, any mere mortal would have been cuffed and either in jail or facing charges. But, again, we are not dealing with a mere red mortal, but a blue mortal which Blue Media will protect until it appears they will damage themselves if they do not act. How deeply unfortunate that we have lost the media as an unbiased watchdog.
  • News out of Maryland reveals that a public high school forced students to profess the Islamic statement of faith. When a father learned that his Christian child was being forced to acknowledge that there is no God but Allah and Mohammed is Allah’s messenger, he called to “opt” his child out. The vice-principal called back and told him that not only could his daughter not opt out but she would also receive zeroes if she didn’t do the assignments, even if they violated their family’s religious beliefs. The father, a Marine veteran, was then banned him from the school property. It’s possible that the Marine may have said something a little blunt, which I might of as well, but he contends he never threatened any physical harm to anyone. This is all now in the stage of a lawsuit filed on behalf of the parents by Thomas More Law Center. When the State takes control of the schools, it usually doesn’t bode well for freedom.
  • President-King Obama has issued another royal decree that the federal government will demand male/female pay-scale data from a hundred thousand of the largest U.S. businesses. This decree carries the ominous threat of federal investigation if they aren’t paying their employees according to how the federal government wants them to be paid. The Federal Arm is getting longer and stronger by the day.
  • The Obama Federal Health decree has reached the end of its patience. Your time has run out. If you don’t have health insurance, even if you don’t want health insurance and would prefer to pay as you go, the Kingdom is going to punish you. The “conform or else” deadline is midnight tonight. It actually would have been so much more dramatic and appropriate if it had been “high noon” for you to surrender and buy into the federal plan. If not, you are going to be fined $695 per adult and $347 per child. A family of four, therefore, will get fined $2084 OR 2.5% of their “household” income, whichever is “greater”. If you are in the upper-middle income bracket, it could be $3000 or more. So, even though you might think that it is a better deal for you to “self-insure”, the Kingdom has decreed you will be punished unless you bow down and pay into the “system”. Worse, if you are a lower income family but in conscience believe this is wrong, your family will still have to come up with the 2 grand fine for your failure to bow the knee. For those who are still familiar with the Founders, take the time to craft a short "letter to the editor" that might have come from their quills on this.
  • Bernie Sanders answered the “God” question this week, although he hasn’t been mum on it in the past. He response was “I think everyone believes in God in their own way. To me, it means that all of us are connected, all of life is connected, and that we are all tied together.” This actually falls way short of The Force. It is more like the Hollywood grab a hand, pass a Coke, and sing ‘we are the world’ kind of thing. But, it is much more honest that Donald Trump trying to convince evangelicals that he is one of them by holding up a Bible that his mom gave him when he was a little boy.
  • As most people expected, Iran went on a “giga” buying spree after we set them lose from sanctions and opened access to their gold vaults via Obama’s unconstitutional treaty. They bought 118 Airbus aircraft and a lot of contracts for steel, energy and shipbuilding. When you bring such big money, even the Romans capitulate. They covered up the their statue’s “immodest” parts so as not to be “offensive” to the guys with the gold. The biggest deal, however, was made with energy giant Total to guarantee purchase of 200,000 barrels of Iranian crude oil per day. Keep your eye out for a further collapse in oil prices and big damage to the U.S. oil industry...and, worst of all, the eventual nuclear capability of Iran. In my estimation, this is going to be one of the greatest foreign policy blunders in the history of the U.S. A Senate with any backbone would have called the President-King on the carpet for this. It was a law-breaking deal.
  • Russia is testing the waters again. Friday they sent a fighter-bomber (SU-34) into Turkey’s airspace. This is similar to what they did two months ago when Turkey shot it down. These are win-win actions by the Russians. If Turkey and NATO do nothing, then the Russians learn something valuable. If Turkey shoots or even brings it down, they gain further justification for military advances in Syria and elsewhere. The telltale is that Putin didn’t respond to either Turkey’s President Erdogan or NATO’s Secretary General Stoltenberg. It is in his best interest not to engage in a conversation with either. He is too busy moving his pieces into place.

Christmas - Offensive to the gods
  The day we call “Christmas” is a celebration of one of, if not equal to, the greatest events in the history of man. It was the culmination of a promise made thousands of years ago in the Gardern of Eden that God would graciously send the “Seed” to crush the head of the evil one and begin the process of making all things right again. Paul tags this moment this way: “But in the fullness of time, God sent forth His son, born of a woman…“ Galatians 4:4 Earlier he said, “Why then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions until the “seed” to whom the promise referred had come.” Gal 3:19 Even earlier, Paul states this Seed is Jesus Christ, who miraculously came to earth in the form of a man. The King of Kings set aside all riches and put on the robes of a pauper, entering the world in the normal, base process of human gestation, so that we might be reconciled to God once again, brought to life from death, clothed with righteous, made a child of God, a recipient of eternal life through faith in Christ. What riches we gained from his sacrifice.! For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9 Yet, in the midst of this most gracious, most kind, most truly loving act of God, the gods of the earth were offended and bent on destroying the Child and all He represented. Herod slaughtered the young in Bethlehem to eliminate Him; the Pharisees and church rulers conspired to kill Him and be rid of Him; Satan tried everything to crush Him. Nothing has changed, really. Today, our culture believes we are gods… equal gods, of course, so that we can all reign in a strange “co-regency”. We do this under the “covenant of tolerance” where each covenants to not impose upon the other’s “god-hood”: “I won’t tell you that what you are doing is wrong, if you don’t tell me that what I am doing is wrong.” In this world of godlings, we therefore can reign without guilt or condemnation or restraint. In this world, any offense of a fellow god is repulsive and tantamount to a capital crime, to be met with the most vicious and heated attacks. In this world, no one god is allowed to reign above another: "There is no one God!" That is horribly offensive and will not be tolerated. So, the celebration of “Christmas” to pay honor and praise to the One true God and His most remarkable act of coming to earth that we might be reconciled to Him, is offensive to all the gods. This year, a memo was circulated around the University of Minnesota from the Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Office stating any celebration that even included green or red was offensive because they represented colors that traditionally were used to point to Christ. Of course, no angels or nativity scenes, bells, doves, or anything else that might offend a god somewhere, someway, somehow. These seem silly to many, yet it is part of the whole of our culture that finds offense almost anywhere. It is why the traditional Bible on a POW table has been removed and why the symbol of the cross and references to anything of Christ are being taken out of crests, flags, mottos, laws, policies, platforms and any other public forum. Nothing is new, brothers and sisters, except that we have now become a remnant in the Land, and must begin to act as a Remnant. And remember... when Harrod and the Pharisees and Satan, tried to wipe Him out… He prevailed. And He prevails today, regardless of what the world will want you or me to think. Take heart, body of Christ! As we celebrate today the coming of our Savior, we will one day celebrate His return and the restoration of all things. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Have a blessed Christmas!
Cultural Leprosy
Just when you thought our culture couldn’t get any crazier, we now have a 47-year-old father of seven who wants to be identified as a six-year-old girl. But the really crazy thing is that our culture is gushing over him. Why? Well, it’s primarily because of the Covenant of Tolerance, where we discard the notion of absolute, transcendent Truth, substitute the individual as it’s source, and then affirm each other’s absolute right to follow our heart. The Covenant then says that I will affirm you if you will affirm me. And we are going to affirm ourselves into a cultural abyss. By affirming the increasingly absurd, we are hoping that we will, in turn, be affirmed in our own absurdity, our own self-centered desires…so that nothing can be denied us…no desire, no want, no need…absolutely nothing can be called into question because there is no absolute truth, only individual truth. And the Covenant assures that we will affirm each other...a solidarity of self-centeredness, if you will. This leads us to see pathology as healthy, selfishness as praiseworthy, and evil as individual righteousness. This is cultural leprosy. We can no longer feel pain--a natural sense of danger; no longer feel when our hand is on the hot stove; no longer hear or see the warnings of lies and evil. We have made a Covenant to hear no wrong, see no wrong, speak that there is no wrong. Cultural leprosy will lead to death. Over time, each evil and lie that we close our eyes and ears and voices to, kills another part of our culture until we become the walking dead. We may still exist, but as a culture, we are dead. We will have literally destroyed ourself through selfish stupidity. So now we applaud Paul Woscht, ('please call me Stefonkee'), who has left his wife and family and has been embraced by an affirming Covenant family who has taken him in as a 6-year-old girl. He dresses in dresses and colors and no doubt plays house with his new “mummy and daddy’s” grandchildren. And to call this insane or deranged, demented or loony, or just plain sinful to abandon one's family for selfish desire, is to be called hateful, bigoted, narrow-minded, and trans-phobic. Because we have become cultural lepers. I would call you again, Remnant, to join together to pray for repentance, Tuesday, noon eastern. Put it on your calendar. Pray that the Lord would strike us all with repentance that we might come to our senses and escape from the trap of the devil who has taken us captive to do his will.  And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. 2 Timothy 2:24-26
