The House could soon be in chaos. Ryan can’t get the necessary votes. Deadlock on a new Speaker hasn’t happened since 1923. Boehner plans to stay on longer than Oct 30 if the House can’t make a decision on Oct 29. While a House divided against itself may not stand with a President, it won’t stand against a President either. Obama is not the least bit afraid of executive authority. He’s already considering it with more gun restrictions. If Obama overreaches, the stronger powers at State and County levels will do more than then either the Republican or Democratic parties ever dreamed of—they’re already starting.

Well, actually 14th, by quite a wide margin. No, American hunters didn’t seem to be counted in the research that tied Taiwan and Israel as having the 13th most powerful militaries. That would bump the US to second place, Russia to 3rd, China to 4th, Japan 5th, India 6th. Unless one counts the American military and American hunters in the same military. But, let’s not get distracted. Revival is coming soon to America. People are waking up.
A mess was created and then left in Iraq, which then moved to Syria. Russia is now cleaning up that mess, proving how incompetent the Democratic Party’s “poster boy” president is.
Beijing and the Pope seem to agree that Churchianity’s bureaucracy in China is not best for Chinese Christians. American Christians will soon discover the same thing in America.

America got two visitors this week: The Pope on the East and Xi on the West. Vladimir appeared on CBS. Everyone comes in peace. Right.
Trump could become a fading fad. As good as it is to have proof that anti-political correctness works—as great as it is to have a Conservative-supported candidate in a spitting match with FNC—Howard Beal from “Network” was never going to last, nor was the “Terror” of France’s guillotines. Yes, Trump, the great deal maker, sits atop his tower, reading American sentiment, and regurgitates is right back at the public, perfectly and all. But he has used the same sentiment his entire career and been successful at it. Is he a fake? If he is then he’s a three decade fake who’s fooled his own kids. We’ll just have to see. Regardless, Carson’s substance could overtake Trump’s pomp. The future remains unforeseeable at this point because Carson is a rookie with beginner’s luck and Trump is thirty-year champ on a ten-year winning streak who’s stayed ahead in this entire game. · · · →
You’ll hear Conservative-minded college students say, “Trump is like Obama, touting change and playing populism.” It’s Libertarian professor propaganda. The notion that Trump is “just a business man wanting to make money and may not even finish” is classic envy. Libertarians think they have the hack on politics and money… and Trump spoils that.
Obama fueled hatred while saying “Hope”. Trump fuel’s hope without saying it. Trump and Obama are nothing alike. But the “cool kids” would likely think so.
In the second GOP debate, courtesy CNN and the Reagan Library—Jeb jabbed and gabbed, claiming that Trump still wants Hillary to negotiate, based on one comment from the past. He pulled out the old “you two stop fighting” high school tactic to earn popularity points. He claimed that Trump wanted gambling in Florida under his governorship rather than his predecessor’s. He accused Cruz of hypocrisy for approving two Supreme Justices that he wouldn’t have nominated. · · · →
On the eve of 9/11, Republican leadership passed up a strong legal argument to keep money away from Iran. The GOP seems bent on making the case for the third party in elections after 2016. The House, by some contrast, made a symbolic move, but with no power. Republican politicians are a lot better at powerless symbolism than a Kentucky County Clerk is. Kim Davis did something very good, yet no one seems to be saying the real reason why. Right or wrong, she was politically incorrect, something the country needs.
No, she’s not slacking off on her job. But the bigger issue is how various social causes have been pushing their goals and expecting everyone else to instantly get out of the way. They don’t know how to deal with opposition, as if they are entitled to victory without a fight. You should always expect resistance, especially if you’re in the right. · · · →
The counterintuitive results from Trump are not only a critique on American politics, but on the management style taught in corporate America. And, this has serious implications for the Church since seminaries teach pastors from much of the same management style. Of course the establishment is surprised that a self-made success has the support of Blacks and Hispanics. It would be wise if the establishment gave the public more credit than to be so surprised all the time.
The forgiveness of abortions from the Catholic Church will initiate widespread repentance over the abortion issue. It is one more step along the way to revival. Reform always trails repentance.
Tebow is out of football. He just didn’t make it this year. Maybe Christians will follow his lead. A next career is foreseeable, as with many acclaimed, retired athletes. Moreover, it seems almost to be a symbolic foreshadowing—if you can’t do the work, you can’t play in the big leagues. · · · →
