Something to think about on Easter Sunday…

Imagine if you were offered a choice of four gifts: The original Mona Lisa, the keys to a brand new Lamborghini, ten million dollars in cash, or a parachute. Which would you choose?

If you have ever asked what happens after we die, if there is a Heaven, or how good we have to be to go there, “Why Christianity?” will help you. If you have ever wondered which religion you should choose, if any, “Why Christianity?” will sort through the confusion so that you can make the best choice. Take a few minutes to answer this question by clicking HERE.  There’s nothing more important than KNOWING where you will spend eternity.

Dems descend a little further into the abyss: Insanity, stupidity, and chaos reign with the release of the Mueller report


The Democratic reaction to the release of the Mueller Report was exactly as anticipated. It was illogical, ignorant, stupid, and pathetic.  Did anyone really expect anything less?

You can listen to AG Barr’s press conference here, (the relevant portion begins at the 22:05 mark).

The Democrats have completely lost touch with reality and are proving this to be true on a daily basis.  No less than five Democratic House Committee Chairmen sent a letter to AG Barr demanding that he cancel his scheduled press conference on the release of the Mueller Report.

The five House members who sent the letter are:

  • Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee
  • Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee
  • Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee
  • Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee
  • Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee

The Democrats are demanding AG Barr release to Congress the full un-redacted Mueller Report.  There are, however, several problems with all of this:

  • By United States law, the Attorney General has complete authority on what to release or not release from a special counsel report – including to Congress
  • The AG has the sole discretion on what is or is not redacted in the special counsel’s report
  • Congress has NO authority to compel the AG in this matter to release anything whatsoever, again by law

Another problem with Muller’s Report, according to Rush Limbaugh, is that it seems apparent that Mueller wrote his report in a such a manner that although he did not directly implicate President Trump in any wrongdoing whatsoever,  the report was worded so as to leave the door open to the implication that there was wrongdoing on Trump’s part, but Mueller just could not find it or prove it.  This of course will give the Dems plenty of sunshine to make hay.

It is obvious to anyone that if the Democrats are provided with the full un-redacted Mueller Report, someone will immediately leak the relevant portions to the mainstream media who will be only too happy to print the dire news with absolute glee.  This would all be in the name of destroying President Trump of course – while being camouflaged as being in the public’s best interest and right to know.

Dangerous criminal Rep. Jerry Nadler was all up in arms over the fact that AG Barr was having a press conference before releasing the Mueller Report.  Nadler said, “this is wrong” – no, it’s not wrong Mr. Nadler.  Nadler is only bent out of shape because the Dems can’t control the narrative on this one, not to mention that they cannot spin this before its release to Congress and the public.

This is not about a press conference or even Congress’s right to see the report – this is solely about that fact that the Dems can’t publicly spin this before the public sees the information for themselves.

Nancy Pelosi sounded off on Twitter:  “AG Barr has confirmed the staggering partisan effort by the Trump Admin to spin public’s view of the #MuellerReport – complete with acknowledgment that the Trump team received a sneak preview. It’s more urgent than ever that Special Counsel Mueller testify before Congress.”

Because Trump did not impede the release of the Mueller Report, even stating that he wanted the report to be released, this is spinning the report?  AG Barr repeating Mueller’s own findings, which were no collusion or obstruction – this is spinning the report?  Keep in mind the source of these comments is Nancy Pelosi – the one who famously said that, “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.”

The Democrats have lost this fight and they know it.  They are grasping at straws in sheer desperation to find anything with which they can perhaps hang the president out to dry.

All of this partisan nonsense is going to come back to bite the Democrats in a very big way.  I recently wrote an article on the fact that the Democrats hate America; this can no longer be disputed.

No outcome or result will be accepted by the Dems concerning Trump except for one – guilty.  It obviously does not matter in the least to Democrats that three separate investigations (Mueller, the Senate, and the House) all concluded that there was no collusion and no obstruction.

The Democrats like to operate on the completely ludicrous and outlandish premise that is only applied to those who are not on the side of the Democrats and the RINOs; then the rules of engagement suddenly change.  Then one is guilty until proven innocent!  Dems, of course, are always innocent until proven guilty.

Democrats have turned looking stupid and uninformed into an art form.  As we head into the next election, as Dems do everything they possibly can to look unqualified to hold office, Republicans may easily regain a majority in the House and extend their majority in the Senate.

Americans are now completely aware of the corruption, the manipulation, and the outright lying of the Democrats, as well as the dishonest and useless mainstream media which always has an agenda to promote.

Fox News station in Texas uncovers huge border scam with fake documents and fake families

A local Fox affiliate in San Antonio, Texas has uncovered a massive scam of illegal aliens with fake documents to deceive immigration officials into thinking they are real families when they are actually fake.

The report comes by way of Fox San Antonio.

“What we discovered is a trail of fake documents that may be accelerating the collapse of the Immigration Court System, according to the American Bar Association. Fake birth certificates that Homeland Security Investigations believes are being used by males to get into the U.S. with children who may not be their own daughter or son, but will help them get released within 7-10 days. I traveled to Del Rio where the Guatemalan consul showed us first hand some of those fake birth certificates found along the border.  It’s a wave of human beings flooding through a permeable border like we have never seen before. The majority of them according to Border Patrol coming from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador also known as the Northern Triangle.”

Monica Mapel, Assistant Special Agent in charge in San Antonio for Homeland Security Investigation, said that “The Northern Triangle, the countries that seems to be the ones in the caravans at this time headed towards the border or have arrived at Eagle Pass offices and our other border offices in Laredo.”

It’s not just young men crossing the border into the US anymore. It’s entire family units, but many of these are not real families.  “Our family units are up 600% compared to this time last year,” said Customs Border Patrol agent Louie Wayne Collins.  A family unit doesn’t mean two men or two women, just so you know.  It means a mother with her children or a father with his children or mother and father together with their children.

There is a reason behind this apparent new phenomenon of men coming to the US and crossing illegally into the country with children, something that would be extremely dangerous for young children to do given the length of the journey.

“There’s a drive and a phenomenon now to bring children with you, so that you can obtain that earlier release into the United States, to wait for your credible clear asylum full adjudication with citizenship and immigration services,” according to Monica Mapel.

So, the obvious question is, if these people are willing to knowingly violate US law to enter the country illegally, would they also seek to deceive those in authority by pretending to be a family unit in order to do what Ms. Mapel is stating?  Obviously, the answer is yes.

“There’s absolutely a renewed attempt to take advantage of US immigration laws, and that’s what I’m focused on, that’s what Homeland Security Investigation is focused on, with our partners in Customs and Border Protection and our brothers and sisters at Enforcement Removable Operations,” said Mapel.

How are these patterns of deceit being detected?

The first clues came at the borders where agents started noticing odd behavior between children and the parent.

“A man arrived at a point of entry in South Texas, the child he was carrying had no diapers and no bottle and when customs and border protection encountered him, they provided him diapers and a bottle and he had no idea how to care for the child, did not know how to feed the child, change the diaper. That’s what we call a clue that is not your child,” said Mapel.

Others have arrived with birth certificates that show that they are parent and child. But when authorities have more time to review the document they start to find problems.

“When you get to maybe a second round or an interview process later on, it may be determined because the child cries out – that’s not my dad or that’s not my mom,” said Mapel..

Consul Tekandi Paniagua has a stack of birth certificates border patrol has been presented by people from Guatemala to show they are the parents of children who in fact are not theirs.

“We have verified many documents and detected a high number of documents that have been altered,” said Consul Paniagua.

The Guatemalan Consulate is working with border patrol and ICE to ensure that the documents being presented have not been altered. But Consul Paniagua also tells us that there is an important message his country is trying to get out to the indigenous community from the western part of Guatemala, which a lot of the documents and the migrants are coming from.

Now, simply because you arrive at the border with documents and a child or children, there is no guarantee of entry into the US.

Ms. Mapel, who has been with HSI for two decades says this takes up all her time.  She investigates to determine where fraud is occurring.  “You know the system wasn’t built for this kind of a load, so I do the best I can to adapt to it, but the ultimate goal at all times is, is that the true parent, do the child and parent belong to each other?” said Mapel.

“When Congress fails to close loopholes. It’s a crisis,” said Tom Holeman, former Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement or (ICE).  Of course, some of the migrants in the caravans are embedded with those who will be used by cartels for future criminal enterprises.

“The criminal cartels control the northern part of Mexico, and those cartels move large numbers of family units through one quadrant to tie up all the assets and they will move narcotics through one sector so we don’t know what is being moved south of the border when everything is tied up over here,” said Holeman.

Many of these are said to use the children for human trafficking into the States, as well.  “They don’t care about the children, they don’t care about these individuals at all. It’s about the money and subtle threats to maintain the organization so that’s what we’re working against on our end,” said Mapel.

No doubt, much of this has been going on for years, but at least the local Fox affiliate in Texas is finally discovering what is actually going on there.

One thing America needs to do is eliminate any form of welfare for these people, as that will eliminate a large part of the incentive for them to cross our border illegally.

Justice Department sides with district court, finds Obamacare to be unconstitutional

Obamacare still being ruled unconstitutional

The U.S. Department of Justice on 3/26/2019 sided
with a district court ruling that found the Affordable Care Act violates the Constitution.

U.S. District Court Judge Reed O’Connor issued the ruling in December, finding that the law’s individual mandate had been rendered unconstitutional due to the partial repeal Republicans passed in 2017.

The ruling has been appealed to higher courts, but the DOJ endorsement could cause the law better known as Obamacare to be treated as unconstitutional while the case moves through federal appeals process.  “The Department of Justice has determined that the district court’s judgment should be affirmed,” the department announced in a statement.

“Individual Mandate can no longer be fairly read as an exercise of Congress’s Tax Power and is still impermissible under the Interstate Commerce Clause — meaning the Individual Mandate is unconstitutional,” wrote Judge O’Connor in his opinion.

The case was led by Texas, according to Politico.  It wanted the entire law, passed without a single Republican lawmaker’s vote and signed into law in 2010, to be invalidated.

At the time of O’Connor’s ruling, CNN reported:  “The case against the ACA, also known as Obamacare, was brought by 20 Republican state attorneys general and governors, as well as two individuals. It revolves around Congress effectively eliminating the individual mandate penalty by reducing it to $0 as part of the 2017 tax cut bill.

“The Republican coalition is arguing that the change rendered the mandate itself unconstitutional. They say that the voiding of the penalty, which takes effect next year, removes the legal underpinning the Supreme Court relied upon when it upheld the law in 2012 under Congress’ tax power. The mandate requires nearly all Americans to get health insurance or pay a penalty.”

President Donald Trump reacted to Judge O’Connor’s ruling in December by praising his decision.

“Not surprisingly, ObamaCare was just ruled UNCONSTITUTIONAL by a highly respected judge in Texas. Great news for America!” Trump wrote.  “As I predicted all along, Obamacare has been struck down as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL disaster! Now Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions.”

Clinton and team hatched the “blame Russia” story within 24 hours of her election loss…resulting in nearly two years of huge expense and complete vindication of President Trump

The narrative that eventually spawned the Mueller investigation was concocted in November 2016 in a gloomy room littered with discarded fast food containers.  Even though Hillary Clinton had delivered a concession speech the day before, Clinton and her team were not ready to give up.  They desperately needed a strategy at that point to de-legitimize the election results, no matter how poorly thought out that strategy might be.  They eventually decided on a plan to “blame Russia” for Hillary’s loss, and that included really pushing a completely false narrative that the Trump campaign had colluded with the Russians to defeat Clinton.  As this plan was rolled out, this false narrative was eagerly embraced by pro-Clinton members of federal law enforcement agencies, and it ultimately resulted in a 675-day investigation by an extremely partisan Special Council.  Robert Mueller issued nearly 2,800 subpoenas and conducted 500 witness interviews, and in the end he had to admit there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, which is precisely what Trump had said from the beginning.


“The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Mueller wrote in the report, according to Attorney General Barr’s letter which he sent to the chairmen and ranking members of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees.

Barr also said that the special counsel, which consisted of 19 lawyers, found no evidence “that any U.S. person or Trump campaign official or associate” conspired or “knowingly coordinated” with Russian efforts to use social media platforms to spread disinformation during the 2016 campaign. Nor did Trump associates conspire with Russians in the efforts to hack Democrats’ emails and disseminate them online.

Of course there wasn’t any collusion, because it was just a completely false story concocted by the Clinton campaign team.

Needless to say, President Trump is not surprised by the outcome of the investigation, and now he is calling on law enforcement to “look at the other side”

“It’s a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest it’s a shame that your president had to go through this for – before I even got elected, it began. And it began illegally. And hopefully somebody is gonna look at the other side. This was an illegal takedown that failed, and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at the other side.

In an interview with Fox News, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani went even further.  He called for “a full and complete investigation” to figure out where the charges that sparked the Mueller investigation originally came from in the first place…

“There has to be a full and complete investigation, with at least as much enthusiasm as this one, to figure out where did this charge emanate, who started it, who paid for it.”

But we don’t need an investigation to figure this out.

In a book entitled “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign”, two Clinton insiders revealed that the “blame Russia” narrative was invented during a post-election campaign meeting that had been called by John Podesta and Robby Mook

That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument.

Obviously they were looking for a way to steal the election from Trump, but that didn’t work.  But the mainstream media and federal law enforcement officials that were sympathetic to Clinton latched on to this narrative really hard, and it ultimately sparked the completely unnecessary 675-day Mueller investigation.

This investigation has been an albatross around the neck of the Trump administration from the very beginning, and things probably could have gone very differently over the past two years if the focus had not constantly been on Robert Mueller.  In addition, the damage that has been done to our relationship with Russia will probably never be repaired.  Clinton has made the US government look like a collection of bumbling fools while both Russia and China have been charging ahead with their plans to continue world domination.

Fortunately, some members of Congress are now calling on the operatives who initiated these charges against Trump to be held accountable.  For example, check out what U.S. Representative Devin Nunes is saying

“This is the unravelling of the biggest political scandal in American history…remember, this dates back to late 2015, early 2016 and began as nothing more/nothing less than a Clinton/Obama operation with a bunch of dirty cops at the FBI and career DOJ officials.” –@DevinNunes

And it is being reported that Nunes is actually ready to make “criminal referrals to AG Barr”

BREAKING:Rep. Devin Nunes says House Intel has evidence Clinton operatives and hi-level FBI & DOJ officials started Trump-Russia investigation in “late 2015/early 2016” and House GOP will be making criminal referrals to AG Barr for officials who “perpetuated this hoax” for 3+ yrs

It will be very interesting to see where all of this goes, if it doesn’t distract the government from trying to actually get something done that’s helpful and constructive.

Meanwhile, all over the nation those on the left who had been pinning their hopes on the Mueller investigation are now melting down in unison.  I really like how Susan Duclos made this point in her most recent article

The media meltdown stems from just one thing…. they helped create a narrative on behalf of Democrats after President Trump won the 2016 presidential election. They hammered that narrative, without proof, letting pundits, including a number of former Obama intelligence officials-turned-television talking heads, push conspiracy theories and outright libelous and slanderous allegations against the president, his family and associates, and then they began to believe their own narrative. When Mueller then ended his operation without indicting anyone close to the President for any type of collusion, they were caught flatfooted, and the meltdowns began.

And here is just a sampling of some of the quotes from top Democrats…none of whom, apparently, have bothered to read the Mueller report yet.

Maxine Waters: “This is not the end of anything!”

Beto O’Rourke: “It is beyond a shadow of doubt that, once in office, the president of the United States sought to obstruct justice”

Kamala Harris: “I know and will know and do know how to prosecute the case against Donald Trump”

Chris Matthews: “How can they let Trump off the hook?”

In the end, Democrats may never give up.  There are desperate to get rid of Trump, they have no ethics or principles or integrity to hold them back, and obviously no desire to heal any of the wounds they have caused.

Losing hope: Suicide deaths hit record levels

Losing hope: There is a remedy that works

For the third year in a row, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control, American life expectancy dropped.

The last time this happened was a century ago, in the years 1915-1918, years marked by our entry into World War I and the outbreak of the “Spanish Flu” pandemic, which killed 675,000 Americans.

This time, neither war nor pestilence is behind the drop in life expectancy. The threats are not external, but internal.

The biggest factors behind the drop in life expectancy among Americans over the last three years are drug overdoses and suicides.  In 2017, more than 70,000 Americans died from drug overdoses, and approximately 45,000 people intentionally took their own lives.

These deaths, along with alcohol-related deaths, have been dubbed “deaths of despair” by researchers Anne Case and Angus Deaton.  The “despair” referred to by Case and Deaton is largely economic, resulting from diminished job prospects and other personal disappointments.  As Case put it, “Your family life has fallen apart, you don’t know your kids anymore, all the things you expected when you started out your life just haven’t happened at all.”

As a result, people turn to alcohol and drugs to ease their pain. An increasing number take their own lives.

Certainly, Case and Deaton’s explanation is partially true. But it doesn’t explain the 30-percent rise in suicide rates among 15-to-24 year-olds, who haven’t experienced these kinds of disappointments. Nor does material deprivation explain why the suicide rate among African Americans and Hispanics is only about a third that of white Americans despite being, on average, poorer.

Something else is going on. And it’s related to the word “despair.”

Some people would call despair a sin.  If you define “despair” as extreme sorrow or grief, then calling it a sin seems cruel and unfeeling.  But that’s not really what despair is.

In the Christian view, despair is the opposite of hope. Thomas Aquinas wrote that despair “is due to a man’s failure to hope that he will share in the goodness of God.” For Aquinas, despair was more dangerous than even unbelief or hatred of God because “by hope we are called back from evils and induced to strive for what is good, and if hope is lost, men fall headlong into vices, and are taken away from good works.”

For Aquinas, “nothing is more execrable than despair. For he who despairs loses his constancy in the daily labors of this life, and what is worse, loses his constancy in the endeavor of faith.” As the sixth-century theologian Isidore of Seville put it, “to commit a crime is death to the soul; but to despair is to descend into hell.”

If there’s a better word than “Hell” to describe the despair we are seeing in so many American communities, it would be hard to find it.

Still the question does remain, “What is the source of this despair?” The answer lies in Aquinas’ words “share in the goodness of God.” Put simply, Americans can easily place their hope in the wrong thing.

This refers not only to those who kill themselves, whether deliberately or indirectly. They’re merely the most vulnerable victims of a worldview that has us, in Isaiah’s words, spending money on that which is not bread, and working for what doesn’t satisfy.

Their disappointment is more keenly felt than ours, but make no mistake, the expectations our culture imposes on us will ultimately end in death. If not physical death, spiritual death. We’re told to seek satisfaction from things that cannot ultimately satisfy us, such as sex, stuff, and self.

Unfortunately social media has the ability to compound the issue by often making people feel like they don’t have enough or can’t “keep up with the Joneses” on a daily basis as we see into the lives of others.

The results are what Aquinas would have predicted: a headlong fall into vice and away from seeking to do good. The most vulnerable among us wind up paying the ultimate price.

But to know Jesus and His resurrection is to know hope.  May we never hide that in a culture that needs it so desperately.

Do you trust people you don’t know?  Most of us would answer by saying “Of course not!”  (And sometimes it’s even difficult to trust people we DO know!)  But you CAN trust Jesus, because you CAN get to know Him.  Intimately.  All you need to do is spend a small amount of time, first, asking Him to bring you into His family, and second, reading all about Him in the Bible.  (Start with the gospel of John.)  Visit WHOFIRST.COM to learn more.
