Keeping Our Eyes Wide Open

by Mike Pyatt

While the scientific world’s astro-physicists are dazzled by the M87 Galaxy, first ever black hole photo, in the Virgo Constellation, #RealBlackHole, most serious minded citizens must keep their gaze fixed upon earthly domestic matters. Those with children recall what happens when mom and dad are fast asleep. It’s astounding what six year olds can do in the dark, once they shed their fear of the bogeyman. If parents are sound sleepers, the chance for mischief escalates. Health experts maintain we need a prescribed amount of sleep to function properly. We aren’t called to “slumber our life away.” Scripture equates too much sleep or rest to slothfulness (Prov.6:9). The lesson’s clear. There’s a time for sleep, and a time to be watchful. The Book of Mathew records Jesus admonishing his soporific disciples, after previously entreating them to be on guard, “Are you still sleeping and resting?” Were they dullards? Would we have fared differently? read more

Why Are Elitists In Charge?

Immediately after the long awaited Mueller Report, that failed miserably to deliver what the Democrats and Progressive Left had hoped and planned, for nearly two years, MSNBC’s, with Morning Joe, and CNN’s, with Chris Cumo, ratings tanked for a few dismal days. Why? Could it be that their audience has wearied of the narrative “President Trump colluded with the Russians?” Only to discover that there was nothing to support the “Cable darlings” forgone conclusions. One might think that the “anchors” would be slightly embarrassed-even a little. No chance. When Trump’s lead attorney, Rudy Guliani, demanded that CNN’s Chris Cuomo apologize for his strident, misleading charges against President Trump, Cuomo, without hesitation, replied, “Never!” Webster defines elitist, “one who is an adherent of elitism: one whose attitudes and beliefs are biased in favor of a socially elite class of people.” Is there a nexus between money, power and elitism? What does CNN’s Jeff Zucker, George Soros, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, and Prosecutor Kim Fox have in common? read more

Fiercely Resisting Deception

by Mike Pyatt

How often has one heard, ”He seemed like such a nice, honest guy.” Belatedly discovering that he was a scoundrel, or worse. History’s replete with stories or events chronicling accounts of being deceived by external appearances and beguiling behavior. So you once opined confidently prior to this plunderer raiding your bank account and absconding with your life’s savings. Or when a future, serially abusive bridegroom, walked your only daughter down the aisle, displaying his deceptive deportment, that you, and her mother, misread as genuine love. Legions are hood-winked. Why does this happen routinely? Is it gullibility? Naïveté? Are we merely obsequious? What of the old bromide attributed to P.T. Barnum, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” Most political junkies understand that soaring rhetoric, winsome stump speeches, and vacuous words are staples of elections, on both sides of the aisle. Most reelection campaigns rely on voter’s political amnesia and gullibility. read more

Reexamining The High Cost of Ignoring Signposts

by Mike Pyatt

In the early 1980’s, a long-time Hoosier friend, and colleague, now deceased, lifetime Catholic, after musing on the rapidly changing U.S. culture, whispered, “I don’t care to live to see same sex marriage as law of the land.” He didn’t. It was his nine grandkids that concerned him. Neither of us would’ve imagined the slide would be so rapid. That slide has been further lubricated by the loss of cultural memory. Evangelicals weren’t as prescient at reading the Signposts either. How’d we miss the longterm influence of compulsory sterilization, primarily of Black girls and women in Harlem, championed by Democrat eugenicist, Margaret Sanger, in the 1930’s, as a harbinger of the killings fields of Planned Parenthood. There were Signposts along the road to moral decay. Most chose to ignore them; others were in denial; many were disengaged. A few sounded a clarion call. We’re told to be “tolerant” of lifestyles that are execrable at the core, and inimical to clear Biblical teaching. Sadly, many chose tolerance at a cost they failed to calculate. read more

Is Trump On Solid Footing?

by Mike Pyatt

Even with a pro “America first” President in the White House, who has the economy humming on all cylinders, our Republic’s still a bloated, over-regulated, out-of-control federal government. While Trump has aggressively slashed onerous regulations, we’re still run amok by staggering national debt, that obnubilates the profound wisdom of the fifty-five men who sat in the Philadelphia Convention in 1787, understood that a new constitution had to be crafted to provide for a national government with co-equal branches and balance of power for states. After President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency, there’s a widening fissure, not just from the Left, but from GOP conservatives who are concerned the President has exceeded his constitutional authority. To date, sixteen Democrat state’s attorneys generals have jubilantly lined up to file suit in the friendly corridors of the U.S. Ninth District Court. Despite CNN’s tagline of “Orange Man Bad,” some think President Trump may prevail. read more
