The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, who opened fire on Republicans and other people at a baseball practice the day before the Congressional baseball game, was no psychopath, he doesn’t fit the clinical profile as some pretend to portray him. According to The Week, restaurant owner Charles Orear was acquainted with Hodgkinson through some work they did together in Iowa on Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. Orear described Hodgkinson as "more on the really progressive side of things," as well as being "a quiet guy" and "very mellow, very reserved."
The worldview of the avowed socialist Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont has no room for Christians in government who refuse to make the State the supreme god of the land. In the nomination hearings of Russell Vought, Trump’s selection for deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, Sanders felt the liberty to ostracize the nominee’s Christian convictions.
President Trump’s speech on Thursday, June 1, 2017, triggered the expected and augmented HYSTERIA, not only in the U.S. swamp but also in the worst arena, the international community. The Europeans are unhinged, and with the help of those American wannabes-European decrying the end of the world, saying people will die, the collapse of the nations is imminent, the oceans will rise destroying coastal cities, Trump must be removed, and the merry-go-round continues.
Since the beginning of human history, people have died fighting for their freedom through wars, revolutions, and counterrevolutions.

This year, as we observe another Memorial Day Celebration, we must assess the present situation of our country and the direction we have taken, but before we do, let us remember how this observance began.
What we are seeing is nothing bizarre or unheard of that is overtaking this nation. We are simply witnessing what other countries live day in and day out: it is the result of power hungry elites motivated by selfish interest and using the history illiterate populace in an attempt to gain control at any cost. Even though America was born with a different vision than the one that now dominates, we must admit it is swiftly transitioning to be part of an odd world that will not end well unless it changes toward the right direction.
"The sick individual finds himself at home with all other similarly sick individuals. The whole culture is geared to this kind of pathology. The result is that the average individual does not experience the separateness and isolation the fully schizophrenic person feels. He feels at ease among those who suffer from the same deformation; in fact, it is the fully sane person who feels isolated in the insane society - and he may suffer so much from the incapacity to communicate that it is he who may become psychotic." - Eric Fromm, Swiss Psychologist (The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness)
The Democrat National Committee (DNC) chair Tom Perez doesn’t care to hide the radical ideological agenda of his political party. Now, he demands that Democrats stop hiding the agenda that is well-known, and that is to get in line with Planned Parenthood or get out of the Democrat Party.
Reasonable, responsible parents want the best for their families; this truth applies to Christians and non-Christians alike. Good intentions are not enough, and every one of us is responsible for the social outcome for the present and future generations.
Editor’s Note: Worldviews matter. Philosophies matter. What people believe and choose to embrace has lasting effects on how they apply these beliefs in all aspects of their life. We are currently experiencing the clash of these ideas; all of which are at odds with each other and they are battling for supremacy. We cannot escape embracing a worldview. Therefore, we must discover which one holds up to the test of time. This editorial first came out back in August 2016, but it’s content is just as relevant for today’s cultural climate.
The world has always been in social turmoil, and it goes through cycles from bad to worse and even to armed conflicts, which produces a significant loss of life. The more weapons of war are perfected, the greater devastation they cause.
