Gridlock in DC until 2020

With the house in MArxist hands and the Senate in conservative hands, we will have gridlock until 2020.

The Marxists in the house are determined to spend two years subpoenaing and investigating and blocking anything the Senate passes, and I am sure the Senate will kill anything the politburo house passes.

Legislation by executive order when it can be done and the right winning everything in 2020! The people will have had enough of the legislating by hate by the left!

Can Scientists Resurrect Extinct Species?


BY BRIAN THOMAS, M.S. * | WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2018

In the 2013 movie Star Trek: Into Darkness, Captain Kirk suffers lethal levels of radiation to save his crew. Fortunately, Doctor McCoy brings his captain back to life by borrowing blood from a character whose body regenerates tissues. In the more recent Jurassic World movies, scientists use protein and DNA sequences from dinosaur remains to create new dinosaurs such as Indominus rex in the lab. Shows like these reveal humans’ interest in outwitting death and leave the impression that perhaps someday science can bring forth life. However, real-world features wreck these science fiction fantasies.

The idea that science can solve any problem flows from humanism. This teaches that humans are the pinnacle of evolution and can create better futures and develop technologies to rescue us from all harm. Humanists seem to want the benefit of everlasting life without having to turn to God.

But science can’t solve every problem. Technologies can help improve health, but they fizzle when it’s time for an animal or a person to die. Scientists may measure brain waves, and doctors can perform incredible medical procedures, but they are powerless to reverse death. Science can’t bring animals or people back from the dead.

Life always comes from life. Tweet: Life always comes from life.

We do see new life—actually a continuation of life—when a baby is born. Science-based tools may help with fertilization or the birthing process, but no science has ever created life from scratch. Life always comes from life. Biologists once taught this basic principle, called the Law of Biogenesis, before education leaders chose to bathe public school science in humanism.1

Since life always comes from life, then the first life must also have come from life. It did. The living God breathed life into specially crafted dust to make the first man, Adam. God then formed Eve out of Adam’s living body. Humanists don’t like God, so they substitute things like dirt, pond water, or laboratories for His life-giving skill.

Even if scientists had a complete and pristine copy of Tyrannosaurus DNA, what could they do with it? They would have to insert it into an egg to resurrect that dinosaur. But those eggs are gone. Even a fertilized egg still needs a whole T. rex mother to properly mature it.

DNA holds information, but it does not hold life any more than a printed recipe can bake a cake. It takes a chef to interpret the recipe. It takes an egg cell to interpret DNA. In short, it takes a mama to make a baby.

This fact gives some scientists hope to resurrect a mammoth. If they can find or make the right DNA, they might insert it into a live elephant mother. It’s a long shot but not total fiction like Captain Kirk or Indominus rex.

God, not science, deserves the credit for giving all people a desire to live after death and for supplying His Son Jesus as the only way to fulfill that desire. Tweet: God, not science, deserves the credit for giving all people a desire to live after death and for supplying His Son Jesus as the only way to fulfill that desire.


The original Creator remains the only one who could bring back dodo birds or dinosaurs. This Creator left good news for those who like the idea of living forever. Anyone anywhere who believes—“whoever desires”2—can turn from sin and trust in the One who rose from the dead to forgive those offenses. Then in addition to forgiveness, “whoever believes in Him not perish but have everlasting life.”3 God, not science, deserves the credit for giving all people including humanists a desire to live after death and for supplying His Son Jesus as the only way to fulfill that desire.4

Quote of the Day

Ephesians 1 (NIV)

Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.

My wish list for the election.

REpublicans 245 in the house and 57 in the Senate.

I voted early!

Mu biggest wish in my state is the Diehl pulls a major upset and unseats faux-ca-hantas Warren!!!!

After listening for the past 3 years the fear mongering and hate the left started against Trump, Trump voters, and conservatives and Bible believing christians, seeing them get control of any house is downright worrisome!

Quote of the Day

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

1 Peter 5:8-9 KJV

This will be my last post for about 2 weeks! See you all then.

Quote of the Day

Phillipians 4:

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

One Solitary Life


Here is a man who was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in another village. He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty. Then for three years He was an itinerant preacher.

He never owned a home. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family. He never went to college. He never put His foot inside a big city. He never traveled two hundred miles from the place He was born. He never did one of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no credentials but Himself...

While still a young man, the tide of popular opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. One of them denied Him. He was turned over to His enemies. He went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves. While He was dying His executioners gambled for the only piece of property He had on earth – His coat. When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

Nineteen long centuries have come and gone, and today He is a centerpiece of the human race and leader of the column of progress.

I am far within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched, all the navies that were ever built; all the parliaments that ever sat and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon this earth as powerfully as has that one solitary life.

Quote of the Day

Psalm 149 King James Version (KJV)
149 Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.

2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.

4 For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,

Why our politics is in such disrepair today!

Most of the media is making much ado about Trumps demeanor and intimating that his clashes with the media and the left is the prime cause of the violence like the fake bomber and even the synagogue shooting. But I believe a different answer is at the root.

I have been a voter since Nixon-McGovern and have followed our politics closely since. Prior to Reagan, politics in the modern era had a civility about it. But when Reagan swept into office by such large popularity and re-elected by even a greater popular and electoral college vote, the left began a campaign of smears!

Things like the GOP is racist, take away your social security and medicare, personal attack ads against Reagan and then all other pres. candidates that followed! Reagan shoved back with humor but since then the Republican methods was just simply disagree and go along to get along and not fight the lies, innuendos and slander with any vigor!

Then along came Trump! He is a bronx palooka who will not lie down and take the attacks quietly! He fights back just as hard! The left is not used to that and the more they have ramped up the attacks the more he fights back! I am convinced he caused McConnel to grow a spine and fight for Kavanaugh all the way through to appointment! As well as so many other on the right have been standing up and fighting back.

It was not Trump who started all this- He was a laughing stock with the leftist media and with the leftist politicians! He called them out and won! He simply said what most people already knew to be true!

He has masterfully manipulated the media! they are forced to cover him for fear of missing something important and then he exposes them over and over again! The left has not had this kind of man since Reagan and they are ill equipped to deal with him!

That is my theory and I am sticking with it!
