Why are there long lines everywhere at Disney but nobody in line to see the HALL of PRESIDENTS?

Even an animatronic copy of President Lucifer can’t draw a crowd these days…

Oh. That’s why.  All respect for this office has been squandered by this president and his group of lying spokes-weasels.

Is a Trump deal in the works for Planned Parenthood?

If the following report is true, the Donald has now lost my support…

Breitbart: TRUMP OPEN TO IDEA OF CONTINUING TAXPAYER FUNDING OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD

During an interview with CNN Tuesday morning, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump stated that he was open to the idea of continuing to fund Planned Parenthood with federal tax dollars.

“The problem that I have with Planned Parenthood is the abortion situation. It is like an abortion factory, frankly,” Trump said. “And you can’t have it. And you just shouldn’t be funding it. That should not be funded by the government, and I feel strongly about that.”

When pressed on non-abortion services Planned Parenthood allegedly provides, Trump said, “What I would do when the time came, I’d look at the individual things they do, and maybe some of the individual things they do are good. I know a lot of the things are bad. But certainly the abortion aspect of it should not be funded by government, absolutely.”

Trump continued, “I would look at the good aspects of [Planned Parenthood], and I would also look, because I’m sure they do some things properly and good and that are good for women, and I would look at that, and I would look at other aspects also. But we have to take care of women.”

In other words Trump is open to a status quo many conservatives find unacceptable and immoral; also a typical federal government shell game to skirt around the law. If you give Planned Parenthood money for these so-called “other things,” the abortion provider can shift money from those “other things” to abortion.

Any money given to Planned Parenthood funds abortion. Period.

Trump also made clear that he was in favor of the rape, incest, and life of the mother exceptions for abortion.


For this voter, the defunding and criminal prosecution of Planned Parenthood is non-negotiable.

Some things are predictable

Here is a brief explanation of why I have not posted much political material lately. The short answer is that the relentless wickedness of our government, many of our people and our institutions has left me momentarily speechless. I said “momentarily.” I’ll be back at it soon. But for now, I’m thinking about the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.” ~ TD

Predictable Things:
Muslims are murderous, Democrats and Republicans are corrupt, the Government is run by unseen people, the major Media is manipulated, racism in America in 2015 is mostly Black racism and mostly opportunistic, Liberalism is a mental disorder, the Greatest Generation was followed by the Most Disgraceful Generation… 

Oh, and then there is this:

The Lord is watching, and He will deal with the wicked. 

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Nineveh repented and was spared.

Will America repent?

Nobody I associate with closely condones the evils of this generation. There is a divide between the righteous and the wicked. The righteous are aware, and repenting at this moment. I believe the righteous will win the day in spite of the seemingly overwhelming odds. I believe a huge revival is coming to America and many other parts of the world right now, and many will cast evil behind them and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lord guide your people in the things you plan for us to do.

…today you will be with me in paradise

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. – Psalm 16:11

today you will be with me in paradiseOne of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”

But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

–Luke 23:39-43

Things could not have been worse;
things could not have been better

How much time was left in their day of terrible suffering? A half hour? Five hours? We don’t have an answer to that question.

But we do have an answer to a more important question. What happened to the two men in this scripture. We have it from a man who is called the Way, the Truth and the Life, that before that terrible day was over, the two of them would be walking in Paradise. Suffering over. Pain gone. Grief gone.

But not just the absence of negatives. They would be in the place of joy, of plenty, of color, of pleasure.

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
– Psalm 16:11

On days when things have begun badly, I have sometimes prayed that the day would end better than it began. That prayer has always been granted, thank God. This was a day that started more badly than could be imagined, and that ended more wonderfully than we could conceive.

Standing Heads #1

In the news business, stories so predictable they can be stored for filler articles on dull news days are called, “Standing Heads.”

Here’s one today that we could write ourselves without knowing even one detail.

Breitbart: TWO DEAD, FIVE INJURED IN PAIR OF SHOOTINGS OUTSIDE RAP CONCERTS

Two people were killed and five injured, three critically, after a pair of shootings outside rap concerts in Toronto and Holmdel, New Jersey late Monday night into Tuesday.


Blah blah blah, “rap concert shooting…” “can’t understand why…” “just getting his life together…”

No offense is intended toward the great writing of Danial Nussbaum. It’s just that the story (not the writing) is so predictable my eyes roll when I hear it.

To all the Hip-Hop thugs out there, you are nothing if not boring.

He Knows Your Name

Jesus saw you from the cross

In this illustration, you are the dove, broken on the rocks and dying. Our Lord is seen focusing on you while suffering and dying on the cross. The the risen Lord is seen releasing you (the dove) healed and free. He is then seen, the ascended King of Kings, awaiting you at the gates of heaven with arms widen open to embrace you in a loving reunion.

Written hundreds of years before Christ, this psalm gives an exact description of the suffering of the Messiah, and of His victory over death for all who would receive Him.

Psalm 22 NIV

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

Why are you so far from saving me,
so far from my cries of anguish?

My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,
by night, but I find no rest.

Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;
you are the one Israel praises.

In you our ancestors put their trust;
they trusted and you delivered them.

To you they cried out and were saved;
in you they trusted and were not put to shame.

But I am a worm and not a man,
scorned by everyone, despised by the people.

All who see me mock me;
they hurl insults, shaking their heads.

“He trusts in the Lord,” they say,
“let the Lord rescue him.
Let him deliver him,
since he delights in him.”

Yet you brought me out of the womb;
you made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast.

From birth I was cast on you;
from my mother’s womb you have been my God.

Do not be far from me,
for trouble is near
and there is no one to help.

Many bulls surround me;
strong bulls of Bashan encircle me.

Roaring lions that tear their prey
open their mouths wide against me.

I am poured out like water,
and all my bones are out of joint.
My heart has turned to wax;
it has melted within me.

My mouth is dried up like a potsherd,
and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth;
you lay me in the dust of death.

Dogs surround me,
a pack of villains encircles me;
they pierce my hands and my feet.

All my bones are on display;
people stare and gloat over me.

They divide my clothes among them
and cast lots for my garment.

But you, Lord, do not be far from me.
You are my strength; come quickly to help me.
Deliver me from the sword,
my precious life from the power of the dogs.

Rescue me from the mouth of the lions;
save me from the horns of the wild oxen.

I will declare your name to my people;
in the assembly I will praise you.

You who fear the Lord, praise him!
All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!
Revere him, all you descendants of Israel!

For he has not despised or scorned
the suffering of the afflicted one;
he has not hidden his face from him
but has listened to his cry for help.

From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;
before those who fear you I will fulfill my vows.

The poor will eat and be satisfied;
those who seek the Lord will praise him—
may your hearts live forever!

All the ends of the earth
will remember and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations
will bow down before him,
for dominion belongs to the Lord
and he rules over the nations.

All the rich of the earth will feast and worship;
all who go down to the dust will kneel before him—
those who cannot keep themselves alive.

Posterity will serve him;
future generations will be told about the Lord.

They will proclaim his righteousness,
declaring to a people yet unborn:
He has done it!


Grace and Peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Keys to unlock the parables of Jesus Christ

Proverbs: the Master Key to the Bible

“The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: for gaining wisdom and instruction; for understanding words of insight; for receiving instruction in prudent behavior, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to those who are simple, knowledge and discretion to the young—let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance—for understanding proverbs and parablesthe sayings and riddles of the wise. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” – Proverbs 1:1-7

Have you ever wanted better understanding the parables of Jesus? Or have various passages of the Bible puzzled you?

That should not be a surprise. Jesus spoke in parables to give clues, but also to deliberately hide the meaning from those who’s corruption has made them blind.

The first 7 verses of Proverbs makes a remarkable declaration. It declares the purpose of Proverbs is to give guidance for understanding proverbs and parables.  The book of Proverbs serves as a Master Key to unlock our understanding of life, and in particular, the Bible. It helps us to become treasure hunters in the Word of God.

But we have one ongoing caveat: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” In other words, without reverence for the Lord, a right heart toward Him, the Proverbs will not work for us.

Happy Treasure Hunting!
