Congressman Mo Brooks explains why President Trump isn’t racist

By Clay Mills Washington, DC — Tuesday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) announced he will vote against Socialist Democrat Tom Malinowski’s (NJ-07) H.Res. 489, a resolution that purports to condemn President Donald Trump for racism when, in fact, H.Res. 489 insidiously interjects racism charges into a dispute that has nothing to do with skin pigmentation or race and everything to do with whether Socialist Demo ...

FAITH: Patiently Persevering through Pain

By Josh Winslett At the close of his epistle, James gives a final exhortation for patience with these words, “Be patient, therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord” (James 5:7a). This is written to persecuted believers who needed encouragement in tribulation (James 1:1-3). It is hard for us to think about having to wait for anything, let alone deliverance from intense persecution. Our society has res ...

FAITH: Watching One Another’s Back

By Michael J. Brooks   Gabriel Byrne portrayed Dr. Paul Weston, a therapist on the TV program “In Treatment.” I caught a few episodes several years ago when our cable company gave a preview, and later rented the series. I watched in rapt attention as Dr. Weston probed the issues and brought about breakthroughs for his patients.   But Paul was often clueless about himself. For example, his patient, ...

Inside the Statehouse: Alabama is a Republican State but U.S. is probably a Democratic Nation

By Steve Flowers The 2020 Presidential Election year has already begun.  It usually begins on Labor Day of the year prior to the Election.  However, in recent decades the parade has started early.  They really are four-year caravans.  They begin the day after the President is sworn in. Indeed, President Trump never shut down his campaign organization, He essentially has never stopped campaigning.  He loves ...

Kids talk about God: Why did the devil tempt Jesus?

By Carey Kinsolving and Friends "The problem with opportunity is that it only knocks," writes author Michael Hodgin. "Temptation kicks the door in." Of course, the wily devil failed in his cunning attempt to kick down the one who said, "I am the door." But the question remains. Why did he even bother to tempt Jesus? Satan tempted Jesus because "he wanted to take over," says Sam, 7. "The devil wanted to be t ...

Apollo 11: Our Giant Leap

By Jim McDade, technology and science commentator Most of the people who were alive to witness Neil Armstrong's first step onto the lunar surface 50 years ago on July 20, 1969, are no longer with us, so it is up to all of us who are old enough to remember that day to describe what it was like to be one of the estimated worldwide television audience of 530 million people who watched Armstrong plant his left ...

FAITH: When people walk away from church

By Michael J. Brooks “Apostasy” isn’t a word my denomination uses much, probably because we don’t believe in it. Many evangelicals hold to the fifth tenet of John Calvin’s TULIP acronym that a genuinely converted person won’t lose salvation. But it’s true that we witness people who walk away from Christian commitment for various reasons. I saw this for the first time as a teenager. Bobby and his wife were y ...

Inside the Statehouse: 2020 Races around the corner

By Steve Flowers Folks, don’t look now, but the 2020 Presidential Election is upon us. Indeed, as many as 21 Democratic aspirants are already announced and campaigning. They are quite a liberal group as you might expect. Leading the pack of Democrats trying to take Donald Trump out of the White House is an avowed, true socialist, Bernie Sanders. Behind ole Bernie are a host of ultra-liberal U.S. Senators wh ...
