We Have Nothing to Fear But SURRENDER!

I saw reports this morning of how Senator Rand Paul called out Dr. Fauci for his refusal to own up to funding (through his National Institute of Health) gain-of-function research at Wuhan lab, which appears to have been the origin of the COVID pandemic. I also saw that a Washington Post reporter, Josh Rogin, admitted that Sen. Paul was telling… Read the rest

Why Are We Sacrificing Our Children to LIARS?

We’ve all heard of or know someone who’s said that cancer–or some other traumatic ailment–is the best thing that ever happened to them. Meaning… it woke them up.

The Swamp–be it political or cultural–has festered for… Read the rest

And by extension, why so many Americans continue to hate each other. Here’s Part 1 and Part 2 of this series. I’ve mentioned… Read the rest

The Slavery–Abortion Connection

It started with my desire to learn about the Civil War. I wasn’t looking for history, I just wanted to know what would drive Americans to slaughter each other in such vast numbers (an estimated 640,000 to 700,000). I’ve written here about diving into Ken Burns’ Civil War series, and I lamented the utter waste of seeing another one on… Read the rest

LOVE Replenishes IMMUNITY!

Love is patient endurance through life stressors; such love heals and improves our immunity. As we go through life, we encounter stressors; some of these stressors may be major traumatic or tragic events. Scientific studies have documented the devastation of the immune system following traumatic or tragic life events (Shaw 2003, Segerstrom and Miller 2004). I hereby submit to you… Read the rest
