Pop-Culturized History Channel

Pop-Culturized History Channel

I am grateful that the History Channel is bringing up the topic of our Founders, but I wonder - how accurate is it? For instance, the show inaccurately portrays Samuel Adams as a poor, bar-hopping, 30-year-old on probation. When in truth he inherited money and a business from his father, had a wife and children, was a political leader in Boston, had an abiding Christian faith, and was 43 years old when the events occurred. There is no evidence to support the “dramatic” depiction of Samuel Adams as a bar crawling, womanizing, street thug on probation.

Daily Beast Lies: American Family Association is ‘Hate Group’

Daily Beast Lies: American Family Association is ‘Hate Group’

I stumbled on a column from the Daily Beast website in which the writer, Dean Obeidallah, hurled such lunatic accusations at the American Family Association (AFA) that you would think no one would give his thoughts a second glance. Sadly, that’s not the case, because his kind of twisted thinking is what is being spread and amplified across all “mainstream” media outlets in our nation, and it’s what is widely accepted as “truth” among the deluded minds of the low-information Left.

This Coming Season of Persuasions

This Coming Season of Persuasions

Lately, what the Associated Press produces, at their usual daily pace, has become expected doses of slanted and even unfounded presentations. Since the last election, the thought of both Houses being in Republican hands has infuriated the AP’s cadre to the point of approaching the trash bin of governmental propaganda. As such, this unprofessionalism deserves a proper review. Especially so since their slick innuendos will continue and increase as 2016 nears.

Not So Hot: Satellites Confirm of 2014

Climate scientist Roy Spencer, PhD., says he is “embarrassed by the scientific community’s behavior” on the subject of human-driven climate change. Spencer does not deny that some temporary warming is occurring but points out that there is, “abundant evidence that it was just as warm 1,000 and 2,000 years ago as it is today.”

Former Transgender Denounces ‘Foolishness,’ Embraces Reality

Former Transgender Denounces ‘Foolishness,’ Embraces Reality

The “experts” these days tell us that physical reality isn’t what we should go by; we should go by what we “feel” instead. The “professionals” tell us that it is better to deny reality and even attempt to mask it than to come to terms with it. Fortunately, one man realized that the “experts” don’t know what they’re talking about, and he was able to put his life back on course.

Obama’s Legacy of Retreat, Shame, and Betrayal

Obama’s Legacy of Retreat, Shame, and Betrayal

Tuesday’s State of the Union speech was yet another glaring reminder of just how out of touch our president seems to be with reality and the true threat of radical Islam on the West. Our son Aaron was a US Navy SEAL. He’d seen the enemy our president refuses to acknowledge face-to-face. His heart had been seared by the blackness of those who exist solely to discharge the terror of Jihad not only on America, but the entire globe.

Is the Senate GOP Going to Cave on Amnesty?

Is the Senate GOP Going to Cave on Amnesty?

Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-OD) is blasting Senate leadership for sending a wishy-washy message on amnesty. Labrador drew distinction from 2014 election campaign promises to what is now taking place on the ground: “Last year the message was, ‘We cannot get our way because we don’t have a Senate [majority].’ Now this year’s message is, ‘We cannot get our way, because we only have 54 votes.’ That’s not leadership. That’s not why the American people voted for us.”
