We taxpayers pay $125,000,000,000 ($125 billion) in federal pensions each year (more than the budget for the state of Texas). And we’re on the hook for $3,500,000,000,000 ($3.5 trillion) in unfunded federal pensions. Read this article about how to make federal pensions transparent.
Why is the mainstream media so liberal and partisan? I believe that it’s because our journalist are being educated in mainstream colleges and taught by left-wing professors. Public colleges and universities receive lots of (federal and state) taxpayer money, and they create huge endowments with it. This is just another form of the welfare state, and since it’s promoted by the left, it attracts left-wing, and often radical, professors. Conservatives need to crash this niche in the education market, but they can’t seem to do so.
The Democratic Party Platform states, “Democrats know that every child, no matter who they are, how much their families earn, or where they live, should have access to a high-quality education, from preschool through high school and beyond.”
Republicans promoted “No child left behind.”
So what is the first step in improving education for “every child, no matter who they are?” How about not killing them before they are born. We legally kill one million children each year through abortion. How can a child expect to “have access to a high-quality education, from preschool through high school and beyond” if he is aborted in the womb? Each of those children is “left behind.”
Believers in the age of grace have many unique features that believers of other ages (Gentiles, Jews) did not. These our ours, and ours alone, as Christians:
1) Positional Truth – Every believe, at the point of salvation is baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Lord Jesus Christ so that he becomes a child of the royal family of God forever.
2) The universal indwelling of Christ – The Lord Jesus Chris indwells every Christian for personal fellowship and
for sharing all of the riches that are possessed by the Son of God.
3) The universal indwelling of the Holy Spirit – God the Holy Spirit, at the point of salvation, comes to permanently indwell the Christian’s body as His temple to be there for power in the Christian’s life and for the guidance of the individual believer. The believer must look to Him for that guidance on the basis of the word of God that he has stored in our human spirit.
4) The universal priesthood of the believer – Every Christian is his own priest before God in dealing with his sins and with his Christian service mission.
5) The completed canon of Scripture – No previous age had the completed Bible with the Old and New Testaments.
6) A supernatural way of life – As Christians, a supernatural way of life has been made possible. The Jews did not have this through the law. With the indwelling of Christ in us, we can live a supernaturally good life, above sin.
7) The filling of the Holy Spirit – The Holy Spirit desires to fill (control) every believer. The Christian can be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18) by confession of sin (1 John 1:9). In that state, he can be a spiritual Christian. He can live the true Christian life, understand the Word, do God’s will, and earn spiritual rewards.
How Does Satan Work?
What is Satan’s purpose? The Bible says that he is both “the evil one,” and “the great deceiver.” He wants to do evil. He also wants evil to prevail on the earth, so he wants others (everyone) to do evil. He is clever and he uses deceptive means to accomplish this, and he has many demons to assist him. 1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
Theresa May, UK Prime Minister recently said, “All acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks on innocent people, but this attack stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice — deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives.”
What was she describing? The terrorist attack in Manchester? Maybe. But she could have just as easily been describing abortion–appalling, sickening cowardice — deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives.
My Own Health Care:

We all agree that the massacre in Manchester was horrible–killing at least 22 people. All liberal and conservative politicians and news media agree that it was an evil, barbaric terrorist attack. It somehow seems even worse that women and especially children were targeted, and even one 8-year-old was killed. What could be worse?
Well, we target and kill one million innocent unborn children each year through legalized abortion. The 8-year-old in Manchester got to live eight more years than any of these children. I’ve always thought of abortion as evil and barbaric, but not until now did I consider that we may call it terrorism–due to its violence.
I voted for President Trump, but if he broke the law and/or is involved in a cover-up, I hope that this is surfaced (quickly), and that he faces the just consequences. Although at this point, I see no evidence of his involvement in a Russia / election scandal, it does make me nervous that former national security adviser Michael Flynn is invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and refusing to hand over documents subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee. I believe that whenever a person refuses to testify, he has something to hide. If not, he would boldly stand and testify against the accusations. And, this does bring back memories of Watergate. If Trump were to fire the special prosecutor, that would certainly seem Nixon-like.
