China is conducting an aggressive disinformation and influence campaign designed to block the re-election of President Trump in 2020, according to a dissident Chinese billionaire who until recently was close to senior Beijing leaders. Guo Wengui, an exiled Chinese real estate tycoon-turned-anti-communist critic, said in an interview that details of the influence operation were disclosed recently by Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan in Beijing. The campaign has been underway since the 2018 mid-term election and […]

During a Friday appearance on Morning Joe, MSNBC host Donny Deutsch promised the world, “We’re not going to necessarily play fair” to put President Trump “in jail.” “We may not have won the battle of impeachment,” Deutsch squealed, “but we’re going to win the war of putting him in jail — whatever we have to do, and we’re not going to necessarily play fair.” JOIN US TO PRAY FOR TRUTH IN THE MEDIA.

[New Age Author and Democratic Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson obviously wants to draw a line between her well-documented New Age theology and the word “occult.” Of course, we know as Christians that New Age is a deception, and very much a false religion and part of the occultic realm.

This article is not about President Trump. It is about us. About our behavior as followers of Jesus. About our words. About our attitudes. About our priorities. It seems that many of us have lost sight of what it means to be Christian, as if anything now goes in the name of Jesus. It seems that many of us now justify almost any kind of ugly rhetoric, as long as it is in the name […]

In the Bible, the rainbow stands as a covenant between God and mankind. But for more than 40-years, the LGBT community has used the rainbow as a symbol of its movement. Now, one former transgender is on a mission to take it back. Nichol Collins lived as a lesbian and drug dealer for 20 years. But after a brutal attack she became a Christian and now stands up for God and her faith. Our God […]

Incidentally, their commitment to infanticide is out of touch with America, polling shows.] The vast majority of likely voters support […]

The Trump administration gained a rare victory this summer in the most unlikely of venues—the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely viewed as the most liberal federal appeals court. One big reason: President Donald Trump’s appointments to the 9th Circuit have moved it closer to ideological balance. The court, long known for being both liberal and among the most overturned circuits, has been a thorn in Trump’s side, ruling against the president […]

Many people have been protesting the election and inauguration of Donald Trump to the Presidency. Some of these protests have been accompanied with attacks on innocent people and destruction of private property, including breaking windows, looting businesses, and setting cars on fire. Some of these anarchists have sought to justify this destruction by claiming their actions were no different than early Americans, much like the Boston Tea Party (see picture). But such a comparison reveals […]
