The Big Lie and truth are in an epic battle for the soul of America

The media and brave politicians hold the key The media must explode this generation’s Big Lie. If they continue to fail to do so, the political crisis in America will slide from bad to worse, more blood will be shed, and our republic may never recover. In many ways, Trump is simply repeating the old fascist Big Lie playbook that, 80 years ago, brought the world to its knees.

Shameless Radical Religious Leaders Have Now Corrupted Government

It’s time to cut them off from the “free lunch” of tax exemption It’s time for average Americans to stop being forced to subsidize politically radical religious leaders. Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and heir to the multimillion-dollar Graham fortune, just publicly said that the 10 Republicans voting to impeach Donald Trump and the US House of Representatives were like Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus.

Why a little insurrection is no big deal to Republicans

If their true scam is admitted, the GOP could wander in the wilderness for two generations It seems inexplicable.

The GOP’s Big Lie is tearing America apart, as Trump expanded it to assault American democracy. A 40-year Republican Big Lie brought us to this crisis point in America. When Ronald Reagan was running for president in 1980, one of his biggest boosters was the political heavy hitter Paul Weyrich, who was also a cofounder of the Heritage Foundation and multiple other rightwing think tanks and operations. Weyrich told a group of political activist in a church basement in Dallas that the GOP was changing their strategy to win elections.

Will the “Trump Train’s” 3rd attempted coup be successful?

It’s all one thing, and the oligarchs and fascists aren’t done yet. They want complete control of America. When Donald Trump first ran for president, it was a stunt to squeeze more money out of NBC and to polish his brand.

Insurrection: A reckoning is essential for the real & powerful villains

While everybody is discussing how the FBI is trying to hold to account those who invaded the US Capitol building and several state capitols on January 6, very few national media outlets are supporting or even discussing the idea of holding the true perpetrators to serious account. The media narrative today is that “right wing crazies“ are the only people involved in this attempt to disrupt Congress and even kidnap or murder some of our elected representatives.

Covid has tested our relationships, and while reports of divorce are up, so are reports from people saying they’ve grown closer than ever before, even among couples who’ve been together for decades. What accounts for the relationships that last through severe stresses like Covid, versus those that fall apart in the face of such a challenge? Much of it boils down to a simple question that couples almost never think to ask each other: “How do you know that I truly love you?”
