The BS Liberal Narrative

In last week’s Looking at the NEWS we looked at the Flipside of some issues raised in the Media, and today I would like to continue this type of theme by referencing some articles which so totally reveal the BS involved in a number of ‘SOCIAL CAUSES.’

Movie Review: The Red Sparrow Surprise

Since arriving back in Australia in August I have been making weekly visits to a cinema with my cousin.

Today we had an unplanned meeting at the shopping-center in which the cinema is located and had no prior knowledge of what was showing at the cinema.

Given that our choice of movie was dependent on convenient screen times, we had no choice but to watch a movie that we had steadfastly been ignoring for more than a month. We chose Red Sparrow starring Jennifer Lawrence – whoever she is. (I’ve just come back from 15 years of living in China and I didn’t know who she was).

The BS Behind the Christian’s Easter

I don’t know about you but when I listen to born again and other evangelical Christians go on and on about God, Jesus and Salvation, I sometimes just want to throw-up my breakfast.

I dare say that a few people reading this feel the same about what they have read so far and have already been triggered into standing ready to give a proper defense of their Christian Faith. So what’s my beef?

Making the Most of Missile Defense

It’s obvious why the bluster and brinksmanship over the nuclear-missile situation between the U.S. and North Korea produces so much tension: If an ICBM were launched at us or one of our allies, what could we do?

We’re not completely vulnerable, though, and for a very good reason: We have a missile-defense system in place. And for that, we can thank the man who unveiled the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) 35 years ago. President Reagan’s address to the nation on March 23, 1983, was a real game-changer.

Passover Guide for the Perplexed, 2018 (a US angle)

Based on ancient Jewish Sages, March 26, 2018
More on Passover and other Jewish holidays:

1. According to the late Prof. Yehudah Elitzur, one of Israel’s pioneers of Biblical research, the Exodus took place in the second half of the 15th century BCE, during the reign of Egypt’s Amenhotep II. Accordingly, the 40-year national coalescing of the Jewish people – while wandering in the desert – took place when Egypt was ruled by Thutmose IV. Joshua conquered Canaan when Egypt was ruled by Amenhotep III and Amenhotep IV, who were preoccupied with domestic affairs, refraining from expansionist operations. Moreover, letters which were discovered in Tel el Amarna, the capital city of ancient Egypt, documented that the 14th century BCE Pharaoh, Amenhotep IV, was informed by the rulers of Jerusalem, Samaria and other parts of Canaan, about a military offensive launched by the “Habirus” (Hebrews and other Semitic tribes), which corresponded to the timing of Joshua’s offensive against the same rulers. Amenhotep IV was a determined reformer, who introduced monotheism, possibly influenced by the ground-breaking and game-changing Exodus. Further documentation of the Exodus is provided by Dr. Joshua Berman of Bar Ilan University.

On the Flip Side: The Other Side of the Coin

There are three sides to every story or so the saying goes. There’s my side, your side and then there is the truth. The problem today is that Truth itself is now a subjective interpretation of the senses, i.e. of one’s political ideology.

Saluting School Choice for Military Families

Americans who join the military know they’ll be making sacrifices. They put their lives on the line, obviously, but beyond that, they know they’ll have no say in where they live. Indeed, frequent moves are often part of the package.

The service-member in question may understand and accept this, but what about the sacrifices of his or her children? They’ll be moving, too. That means not only a new home and new neighbors, but a new school.

The Youth Are Sparking A Revolution

Our world is undergoing massive change, and mainly, it is the gravity of the direction of this change that has inspired me to write this article, and in particular the plight of the youth, and the way they have been marginalized by world governments; high unemployment rates among the youth is rampant, lack of opportunities to advance in life, and the dilemma which has confined them in parental homes unable to break free and become independent adults.
