Religious Shareholder Activists Promote Energy Poverty

Your humble writer takes no pleasure in reminding readers that he told them so, but a post from last December now seems prescient. The post began: In the wake of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC, or COP21), so-called “religious” shareholder activists are intent on ruining investments, crashing the economy and doubling down on their efforts to promote energy poverty throughout the world.

Green America’s Immoral Anti-GMO Crusade

Readers will forgive their writer for being clueless when it comes to the connection between religion and mayonnaise.

The Goo-Goo Chorus of Silence

George Soros just donated another $6 million to Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s Super Political Action Committee, raising the total the billionaire has contributed thus far to her 2016 campaign to $7 million. Continue Reading...

Heaven’s Not Just for Progressives

Any number of meanings are attached to “the Kingdom of God” as an essential element of Jesus’ teaching for Christian praxis. Used as just another slogan for political activism, in which the shade of meaning is usually reconstructing Heaven on Earth along collectivist lines, has me tossing the theological yellow flag.

‘Dark Money’ and Leftist Hypocrisy

Poor Rod Serling. Had the Twilight Zone and Night Gallery host lived it’s assured he’d provide the voice talent for the audio book version of Jane Mayer’s Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires behind the Rise of the Radical Right. Continue Reading...
