    "All Nations Are a Drop in the Bucket" to the LORD Isaiah 40 is an incredible chapter of comfort.If you are facing fears about a potential world war or anxiety about our country's descent into Socialism or Marxism, or if the thought of your children and grandchildren growing up in the bankrupt United States spooks you, you should read Isaiah 40. The LORD has a purpose for His people. He is in control. "All the nations are a drop in the bucket" to the LORD. (Isaiah 40:15). China has declared it will rule the world by 2049. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) intends to bring the United States and the world under its domination by[…]

  • Totalitarianism, Cancel Culture, Lenin and Hamlet

    May 7, 2021 | 10:09 am

    Totalitarianism, Cancel Culture, Lenin and Hamlet Hamlet - Broadway (New York) "Testimony" is the autobiography of Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich. In it, Shostakovich tells the story of why the William Shakespeare play Hamlet was never shown in Russia during the 20th century. According to Shostakovich, Joseph Stalin, the communist totalitarian dictator appeared at the Art Theater in Moscow when Hamlet was playing. Stalin said, "Why is this necessary - playing "Hamlet" in the Art Theater?" Though the Soviet dictator never commanded that Hamlet be removed, his question was all it took. For decades after Stalin's statement, the greatest Shakespearan play did not adorn the stages of the Soviet Union.[…]

  • This Burleson Cousin Disagrees About Uncle Rufus

    Apr 29, 2021 | 15:10 pm

    This Burleson Cousin Disagrees About Uncle Rufus My name is Wade Burleson. I share a great-grandparent (4x) with Dr. Rufus C. Burleson, the two-time President of Baylor University (1851-1861, 1886-1897) and the man responsible for moving Baylor University to Waco, Texas. Recently, Baylor University’s Commission on Historic Campus Representations recommended that the Baylor campus statue of Rufus Burleson be relocated and the name of Burleson Quadrangle be changed. Baylor has succumbed to the "cancel culture" Marxist movement of Intersectionality and Critical Race Theory. My wife and I met while attending Baylor University, and we would often sit on the benches positioned in Burleson Quadrangle in the evenings[…]

    Apr 28, 2021 | 08:47 am

    A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand: Oklahoma HB 1775 to Ban Critical Race Theory On June 16, 1858, Abraham Lincoln gave his famous House Divided Speech. Lincoln, running for the United States Senate against incumbent Senator Stephen A. Douglas, argued that the only way the United States could remain in union with each other was for there to be only one position on slavery - its abolishment. The southern States wished to keep slavery and the northern states wished to abolish it. The United States was divided. Lincoln famously said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand." It is this Lincoln speech that is remembered most. Reflecting on it years later, Lincoln's law partner William Herndon[…]

  • Courage Is the Mother of All Other Virtues in Life

    Apr 26, 2021 | 05:54 am

    Courage Is the Mother of All Other Virtues in Life Last night Rachelle and I watched national news for the first time in a long time. The lead story was about "the anxiety and fear Americans feel returning to work after Covid-19." After we watched the story, my wife turned to me and said, "This nation is full of cupcakes."I believe there is a correlation in our nation between courage and tyranny: Tyranny accentuates as courage dissipates. Only when a nation's people are renowned for their courage (think, The Greatest Generation) will that nation be strong enough to rebuff government tyranny.Aristotle said that courage is the mother of the virtues because[…]

Further, the administration of OU is accused of attempting to cover up the forcible[…]
