Upcoming election
Council promises

Well, June 1 came and the names of candidates for mayor and council are now known, unless someone files a lawsuit to challenge any of the petitions in superior court by June 15.

Both surprising and melancholy is that Usama Abujbarah is not running for Mayor. He certainly would have gotten my vote. He apparently had family matters here, in Egypt and in Jordan with sick friends and relatives. After 14 years as town manager and three years as a planner, no one was even close to being as able as he was for Cave Creek needs and accomplishments.

Sad, sad and more than sad!

Bill Kristol asked me to run against Donald Trump

Well, he didn't exactly ask me and, well, it wasn't exactly Bill Kristol in person.

Actually, it was just his voice in the form of a robocall, a computer-controlled autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message.

"Hi, this is Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard. As you know, I have been looking for a candidate to challenge Donald Trump for the Republican nomination for President. Congratulations, you are interviewee number..."

Why I had to write 'Hating Jesus'

“Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.”
~ John 15:20

The answer had to be yes. The Holy Spirit made it crystal clear. When Tristan Emmanuel, managing publisher and CFO of BarbWire Books, called me and said it was time for me to put pen to paper and write a book on the anti-Christian left’s demonic war on religious liberty (and all things godly and good), I immediately agreed.

Four Tribes Competing For Supremacy in 21st Century America:  The Muslims

Part 5: Muslim immigration, 9/11, San Bernardino, Koran’s teaches toward terror, Sharia Law, war on women, war on gays, war on free speech, Islam’s store for America and the West.

"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."

(Winston Churchill / 1874-1865)

Endorsement of Donald J. Trump for President

The American people have expressed their frustration with the Washington “Political Ruling Class” and the Congressional leaders of the Republican and Democrat parties, because they have supported policies that can only be described as an anti-American, and being in the pocket of Washington lobbyists.  They consistently violated most of the principles upon which the Founding Fathers established the Republic, and failed to take legal action in Federal Court to halt Obama’s repeated violations of the US Constitution.
