    Now We Know How Germany Let It Happen
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column For as long as I can remember, when freedom-loving Americans would gather in small groups to discuss world affairs, the question would come up, “How did the German people come to allow themselves to embrace totalitarianism the way they did?” Then, after a time of discussion about it, the group would always conclude by saying, “Thank God, this could never happen in America.”  As a small boy, I heard those discussions from my parents and their friends, who were part of “The Greatest Generation.” I heard it from my friends in college...

    Give Me Liberty Or . . . Oh Never Mind
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column Ironically, three days ago, March 23, was the 245th anniversary of Patrick Henry’s immortal “Give me liberty or give me death” speech. Without a doubt, this speech is regarded yet today as America’s most famous, most inspiring and most influential oratorical presentation. If there was any doubt that America was going to fight a war for independence from Great Britain, that speech shattered it.  Here are excerpts from that courageous and magnificent address: The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own pa...

    A Contagion Of Fear
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column Does anyone remember these words:  "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself"? Those words are from President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s First Inaugural Address delivered on March 4, 1933. These words were spoken at the height of the Great Depression. My parents lived through the Great Depression (and two World Wars). I grew up listening to their experiences of living in the Depression. For poor people (which my parents were), the Depression was horrific. Today's Americans know nothing of suffering in the magnitude of that terrible period of...

    Great Awakenings And Megachurches: A Study In Stark Contrasts
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column I have long maintained that America’s primary problem is not a political one but a pulpit one. If this is true, then the solution to America’s primary problem is not political but spiritual. But don’t expect most evangelicals to comprehend that. In the minds of most evangelicals, the antidote for America’s ailments is deposited at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. In this respect, evangelicals and political conservatives are not unlike religious and political liberals: Both groups look to Washington, D.C.—especially the White Hous...

    Remembering The Alamo
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column Tomorrow, March 6, marks the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo outside of San Antonio, Texas, back in 1836. This event is so significant in my mind that I always try to devote a column that honors the heroism of these men on or around the anniversary of the occasion.  For 13 days, 189 brave and determined patriots withstood Santa Anna’s seasoned army of over 4,000 troops. To a man, the defenders of that mission fort knew that they would never leave those ramparts alive. They had several opportunities to leave and live. Yet they chose to fight and die. How f...

    This Is Not Going To End Well For Evangelicals
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column Now that the election season is heating up, rational reasoning, constitutional principles and spiritual convictions are in deep hibernation. For that matter, they have been in deep hibernation ever since Donald Trump was elected president. On my Facebook page this week, I wrote: If conservatives and Christians were as faithful to the principles contained in our Constitution and Bill of Rights when Republicans are in the White House as they are when Democrats are in the White House, I would have some respect for them—and I would be singing a much different t...

    Time To Put Americans Back In Charge Of America
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column Members of the “right” and “alt-right” love to use terms such as “the establishment,” “Deep State,” “globalists,” etc., in describing freedom’s political enemies. And, yes, I often use those terms too. For the sake of brevity, I will refer to the above as simply “the ruling class.” Seldom, however, do conservatives identify who actually comprises the ruling class. Typically when using those terms, conservatives are attacking Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and liberal Democrats in general. Whi...

    Back To Rome
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column Even the most casual student of history knows that the mighty Roman Empire fell from within. More serious students of history have read tomes of scholarly research on the subject. Most of them also share the conclusion that the collapse of the greatest economic and military power in the world came primarily from within. And many of these same researchers are saying that America is on a course to repeat Rome’s collapse. I believe they are right. Excessive taxation with unbridled spending, a hedonistic culture preoccupied with pleasure and sport, fascination with mil...

    An Appeal To My Preterist, Postmillennialist, Amillennialist, Reformed...
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column Before I get to the main point: This column was written before the vote in the Senate to acquit Donald Trump of corruption charges took place—but it doesn’t matter. The verdict to acquit was made before the “trial” ever began. And as for the so-called State of the Union Address, I haven’t paid much attention to this carnival act in decades. Like almost everything in Washington, D.C., Trump’s impeachment was all public theater. The real decisions are made in backrooms. And the decision to keep Trump in the White House for a second term ...

    Trump’s Deal With The Devil
     
    Download free computerized mp3 audio file of this column Donald Trump’s so-called Deal of the Century unveiled this past Tuesday is actually a deal with the devil. This so-called Middle East Peace Plan would more accurately be called the “Permanent Palestinian Enslavement Act”—otherwise known as the “Save Benjamin Netanyahu’s Derriere Act.” On the very day that Netanyahu was formally indicted on corruption charges by the Israeli Knesset, Donald Trump rolls out his “Deal of the Century” Middle East peace plan. As with Trump’s assassination of General Soleimani, th...
