The Trump Phenomenon and the "Conservative" Movement's Identity Crisis

Date: 01/21/2016

One can only hope that the Trump phenomenon will bring into the sunlight several fictions, most, but not all, of which GOP boosters have been promoting for years. The first is that there are two fundamentally opposed forces within the Republican Party: “the Establishment” and “conservatives,” “anti-Establishmentarians,” or “outsiders.” From this perspective, to hear many GOP politicians and thei ...

The Reason for the Season; Or, Would Jesus Celebrate Christmas?

Date: 12/23/2015

On a recent episode of my radio show, Rise UP with B. Dave Walters  we discussed the true meaning of Christmas, and how to deal with some of the negative emotions that can come along with it.  I got so emotional while talking about the meaning of Christmas that I cried on the radio; something I didn't think was possible!

Mitt Romney, Faux Conservative Extraordinaire

Date: 10/25/2015

Those of Donald Trump’s “conservative” critics who accuse him of promoting a faux conservatism would be well served to look in the mirror. In the GOP presidential primaries of 2012, many of the same commentators, like Charles Krauthammer , who now declaim Trump as a fake invoked the so-called “Bill Buckley rule” in endorsing Mitt Romney, for the latter, it was said, is “the most conservative ca ...

Hole in the wall of separation: churches get raided endlessly by the NSA

Date: 09/26/2015

The illegal confiscation of all our email and phone call data by the US National Security Agency (NSA) isn't just unconstitutional within the United States, but is a direct threat to the ability of religious traditions to continue. It is a type of desecration and a direct state invasion when used against churches, and so religious believers of all faiths should be opposing it fiercely. I am ...

Hey Jonah, hey Ben: What IS a "Conservative?"

Date: 09/10/2015

His opponents in the GOP presidential field and in segments of the so-called “conservative media” have sought to discredit Trump on this score. But they are dishonest, for neither are their favorite candidates at all “conservative.” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is a classic case in point. Christie has acknowledged that up un ...

Trump Is No Conservative, But Neither Is...John Kasich!

Date: 08/22/2015

Donald Trump may not be a conservative . His Republican opponents, both his rivals in the presidential primary contest as well as their apologists in the media, are laboring tirelessly to discredit their party’s front runner on this ground.
