The Art of the Steal: The Left Tries to Overturn the Election

The Art of the Steal: The Left Tries to Overturn the Election

Photo by Manning Center Amid the furor created by the Left over the maybe-hacking by Russians, remember that it’s being used as an excuse by Democrats striving to convince electors to betray the voters in their states. The so-called Hamilton Electors are all Democrats, except for one Texas elector. But they are only part of a full-court press to pressure Republican electors to turn. Many electors have reported receiving vast numbers of e-mails, phone calls, even snail mail urging them to dishonor their pledges— and even threatening them if they don’t. This unprecedented siege on electors is teaching us a lot about the Left. Friday night, one of the actors featured in a commercial encouraging Republican electors not to vote for Mr. Trump on December 19th, Mike Farrell, made it quite clear to Fox’s Tucker Carlson that he thought the choice made by over 62 million voters should be overridden by a small group of electors who would make a wiser choice.  If the Electoral College had that power, America would essentially be an oligarchy like the old USSR, North Korea, and Venezuela. Tomorrow, we’ll find out if the leftists have been successful. But now we can all see, clearly as clear can be, that the Left means to harm America, and needs to be opposed like the enemy it is. As Lincoln once warned, we should not worry so much about an enemy that’s thousands of miles away; we should worry more about the enemy within—the American Left, our secret opponent in a hundred-year war. The Left hates America so deeply it even allies with the Muslim Brotherhood, which has put in writing that...

Choosing Hope- Little Heart Heroes

Choosing Hope- Little Heart Heroes

On August 30, 2013, I began the most arduous journey of my life.  This was the day I officially became a heart mom after finding out that my unborn baby boy was going to be born with a serious and life-threatening congenital heart defect (CHD), and I knew life would never be the same. Just one week after our wedding, my husband and I walked hand and hand into the hospital for our scheduled fetal echo knowing there was something wrong with our baby’s heart from a previous scan. Nothing could have prepared us for what we were about to face. Any shred of hope we walked in there with was completely eviscerated by the doctor who had performed the fetal echo. As she began describing the CHD that our son had to us, she took out a piece of paper and on one side she drew a diagram of a “normal” heart and on the other a “Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome” (HLHS) heart, our son’s heart.  With the help of her illustration, she explained to us how our son would be born with only half a functioning heart before detailing the series of three open heart surgeries he would need to go through just to survive. Through all of this, the world around me faded, and her words became muffled as I kept praying I would wake up from this nightmare I was sitting through.  I didn’t wake up, and as I tried to come to grips with what we were facing, I needed desperately to find something positive in what seemed like a hopeless situation. My husband and I...
God’s Dream Come True

God’s Dream Come True

Isaiah 46:9-10 (TLV) – “For I am God—there is no other.  I am God, and there is none like Me—declaring the end from the beginning, from ancient time, what is yet to come, saying, “My purpose will stand, and I will accomplish all that I please.” Have you ever wondered why if God knows everything—past, present, future—why did He create the earth in the first place?  He had to know that Satan would rebel, that Adam and Eve would fail the test, and He would have to take the form of His own creation in order to sacrifice Himself for our salvation. When Cain killed Abel, why didn’t God stop there?  Why did He provide another son, Seth, through whom salvation would eventually come? When the world had rejected Him so completely that every thought and intent of the heart was evil, why did He go through the trouble to destroy every living creature…except for Noah, his family, and enough animals to start over again?  Why didn’t He just wipe the whole thing out and just say, “Forget it!” The painstaking care God took to create, and then ensure the continued existence of His creation insists that there is a purpose beyond plain sight.  He spent thousands of years preparing for, and then establishing a nation through whom He would send His salvation.  At the same time, He used that nation to demonstrate to the world, both then and now, how very much we need Him and just how far He was willing to go to for us. Story after story in the Bible shows us the character of...
