Gun Control…The True Story of Innocents Betrayed

Governments have historically deprived people of firearms … and then wiped them from the face of the earth.

This is the true story of Gun control from around the world, especially in the 20th century. It details how governments have ALWAYS BEEN the biggest threat to the safety, security and prosperity of the people. While Americans can see how this could happen in other countries, most can’t EVER imaging it being able to happen here because there are so many rights guaranteed by the constitution. But that ONLY when the people STAND UP for those rights, because it’s the nature of government to constantly try and TAKE them away from us. read more

Apollo 11: A Triumph of the Human Mind

“That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong, Apollo 11 mission, as he stepped onto the moon’s surface, July 20, 1969

Very well do I remember those words as Commander Neil Armstrong uttered them, for – with thanks to the miracles of a beat-up black-and-white Magnavox TV – my Dad and I heard them with our very own ears, exactly 50 years ago on this very day.

Yep, that old Magnavox was all we needed to see the whole show. Which, since we had just moved to Detroit from Pasadena, Calif., a few weeks earlier, we watched sitting on orange crates. Not that we noticed. read more

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

A World Turned Upside Down

by Mike Pyatt

How could two people, two millennia ago, given communications’ pace of the day, be characterized by citizens, at the end of Acts 17, “These, that have turned the world upside down have come here also.” That’s astonishing that any man, or men, like Paul and Silas, could’ve influenced their culture so dramatically. The rumor mill of that day had traversed from Philippi, to Thessalonica, more than one-hundred miles away-about nine travel days back then. Looking backward, down the corridor of time, one must understand that it was their preaching of the Gospel that had upset the status quo in the dominant social order-throwing it into cultural chaos. God had upset Satan’s stronghold, and the religious tradition of latitudinarianism. The Old and New Testament chronicled those who shook the establishment to its’ core. Amos, Elijah, Jeremiah and Ruth were forerunners of “making waves.” They too “turned their world upside down.” read more

Communist Propaganda

Author Theodore Dalrymple noted in 2005 that political correctness is simply “communism writ small,” adding:

“I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” read more
