The Three Cs That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism and the Constitution
Forces on the Left seek to fundamentally change our nation by disregarding the principles upon which it was founded. Members of the media and liberal politicians seek to damage our economic, political, and educational systems for their gain. The Three Cs That Made America Great: Christianity, Capitalism, and the Constitution:
exposes the Left's plan to undermine the Christian values on which the nation was built
reveals how attacks on Christianity are part of the political agenda of Liberals
provides a clear understanding of capitalism and how free markets benefit all people
reveals how Liberals undermine capitalism with their socialistic policies
shows how the Constitution’s purpose to restrain government and protect individual liberty
unmasks the efforts of the liberal Left to subvert the power and relevance of the Constitution
exposes the current corruption in government and culture which undermines the principles on which the nation was founded
America faces a war of values that will determine its future and likely decide if it will continue as a great nation on the world stage. Mike Huckabee and Steve Feazel sound a needed alarm to Christians and conservatives to answer the call to action and push back against the forces that desire to move America from its heritage and founding principles. It is time for God's people to take an active role in the political arena, not with violence, but with votes and voices that proclaim and defend the values that made our nation the brightest light of freedom the world has ever known.

Oh goody, yet another problem with electric cars
You can’t have an AM radio in one because the motors interfere with the frequencies. So goodbye to emergency safety alerts, and, I’m sure coincidentally, conservative talk radio.
College enrollment falls
The Associated Press reports that between 2019 and 2022, college enrollment in the US fell by 8%. I’d assume that was because of COVID, and that students didn’t appreciate paying an arm and a leg for classes they couldn’t even attend in person, and being forced to have their arm repeatedly jabbed. But according to the A.P., one big reason for the drop in college enrollment was young people deciding it’s just not worth it. To which I’d reply with three words: “It’s about time!”
Many students have looked at all the underemployed liberal arts majors with crushing student loan debt and decided they’d rather go to work and make money or train for a secure, good-paying job as a skilled tradesperson. This article quotes several who think that working toward taking over the family farm or apprenticing to become a plumber is a better idea than spending four years in college just to get a sheepskin that may or may not land them a job that pays well enough to pay off their staggering student loan debts before they’re retirement age. Add in the fact that colleges have developed a reputation for prioritizing wokeism, socialism and anti-Americanism, silencing free speech and punishing conservatives and Christians over teaching anything of value. You can’t even learn real math because math is racist now.
While college enrollment predictably ticked back up in 2022, the story reports that “the numbers have begun to alarm some lawmakers, college administrators, and researchers,” with one Georgetown University researcher declaring, "It’s quite a dangerous proposition for the strength of our national economy."
Really? I hear a lot about shortages of plumbers, mechanics, farmers, truckers, etc., which really is dangerous, but I never hear anyone complain that there aren’t enough lawyers, poli-sci grads or gender studies majors. For the past few years, our national economy has been in the hands of graduates of the finest elite universities, from corporate boardrooms to the highest levels of government. How is that working out?
And by the way, why does “education” cost more and more when it’s actually making people stupider?
If young people are seeing college as an overpriced indoctrination factory that gives them nothing but debt and no usable skills, that’s on the people running the colleges. Want to bring the customers back? Get rid of the DEI garbage and start teaching something worth learning. Cut tuition by firing the bloated, overpaid administrative staff, particularly those whose main job is to foment racial divisions. They could also stop paying people like the author of “The 1619 Project” $50,000 speaking fees to spew hateful, anti-American rubbish for 45 minutes. Would anyone not gladly trade that for a tuition cut?
In the meantime, I think America will actually be a lot stronger with more unindoctrinated plumbers, farmers and mechanics and fewer socialists, activists and lawyers.
And speaking of the reasons why so many young people are looking at our universities and deciding they’d rather go to trade school…
And this is a state school in Montana! That’s how deep the infection of “higher education” runs.
Praying for a swift recovery for Senator McConnell
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been released from the hospital after taking a fall at a dinner at a DC hotel. It appears that his injuries were worse than at first reported, and he suffered both a concussion and a “minor rib fracture.”
McConnell will have to go to a rehab facility for days or possibly weeks (it’s unclear at this time.) Please pray for his full and swift recovery.
Another hopeful sign
Here’s yet another hopeful sign that students are getting sick and tired of paying too much money for “educations” from university administrators who are unqualified, angry, radical hacks with no respect for the rights of students or speakers.
Kudos to the staffers of the Stanford Review for actually taking a stand for free speech and demanding the firing of the so-called “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion dean” who joined students in heckling and screaming at a judge who was a guest speaker for allegedly not showing enough deference to a transgender sex offender.
FYI: Tuition for full-time undergraduate enrollment at Stanford is $19,231 per quarter. How much less would it cost if they didn’t have to cover that woman’s salary, which, without even knowing what it is, I guarantee is far more than she’s worth?
If you are a regular person like me, you can have a degree in theology, serve as a pastor, and spend decades praying and studying the Bible and still wonder if you are following the precise path God wants you to take.
How much easier it would be to be a “progressive” politician, and simply declare that what God wants is for everyone is to follow your own personal political beliefs, even if they directly contradict your own professed religion (like promoting radical abortion laws while claiming to be a devout Catholic) or are outright blasphemous, like claiming that God constantly makes mistakes and puts people in the wrong bodies, and doctors have to fix His blunders by inflicting dangerous chemicals and irreversible surgery on children.
Biden's big miscalculation
I believe one of the biggest miscalculations this Administration made was the idea that opening the floodgates to illegal immigrants would somehow win them votes from the American immigrant community. I’ve argued for years that some of the most patriotic opponents of illegal immigration are legal immigrants, who resent having people come in illegally and demand rights that they patiently waited and worked for.
Here's yet another example: a Somali immigrant who served in the Iraq War. She’s furious at Minnesota’s Democrat Governor Tim Walz for giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. She told Fox News that it’s “Absolutely outrageous. I can no longer recognize what country I'm in because I came here legally. I came here back…when our country had laws and rules. I waited in the slums of Kenya for three years to be vetted medically and criminally, and after we got here, I waited five years to prove myself that I was going to be someone worthy, and who's going to be worthy of citizenship."
If I didn’t tell you those are the words of a Somali-American immigrant named Shukri Abdirahman, some on the left would probably already be calling her a “white supremacist.” Come to think of it, they probably will anyway.
