The Hitler Comparison; The ‘Dump Trump’ RINOs

Thoughts on a Trump Presidency


 By Ken Kellar


 Some have been comparing Donald Trump’s rise in the political arena to that of Adolph Hitler’s.

Some were inspired by an event in which Trump asked the crowd to raise their right hand and swear they would vote for him. A little whiff of Hitler there I must admit. That is unless you see the next ten seconds of the event where Trump tells the crowd he is just kidding and they should vote for whoever they want but he hoped it would be for him.

Others sound the “Hitler” alarm for another reason.… Read More

HANDWRITING ON THE WALL

Political Balance and the March to Socialism?


 By Patricia A. Kelly

It may be over. Yes, we’ll continue to have primaries, but it will be a surprise if Ted Cruz, John Kasich or Bernie Sanders wins their party’s presidential nomination.

A brokered convention remains a faint Republican hope, among those who dislike Mr. Trump. If it does happen, it could well backfire and even destroy the Republican Party.

MARTIN LUTHER KING WAS A MAN DEDICATED to the Christian faith and this Christian faith shaped his political philosophy. It is unfortunate that fifty years later a politician and self-proclaimed Dr. King expert would attempt to re-shape Christianity to fit his personal political philosophy.

Charleston, South Carolina clergy awoke last week to chastisement from Charleston County Councilman Henry Darby in an op-ed piece published by Charleston Post and Courier “Why MLK would agree with Black Lives Matter.”  White clergy were taken to task because, They lecture on the love of God and Jesus Christ but remain predominately silent on the issue of race.… Read More
