A President Falsely Charging ‘Treason’ Is What the Founders Feared
Via: Don Overton • 73 comments • 6 hours ago
Donald Trump swore to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution.
The Constitution declares, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”
On Wednesday, President Trump wrote , “I think what the Democrats are doing with the Border is TREASONOUS. Their Open Border mindset is...

Gillette posted a photo of a plus-size model and Twitter couldn't handle it

A heated debate broke out on Twitter -- a breeding ground for divisiveness -- after the razor company, Gillette Venus, posted a photo of a plus-size, bikini-clad model at the beach.

Trump’s ‘truly bizarre’ visit to Mt. Vernon

The 45th president — no student of history — marveled at the first president’s failure to name his historic compound after himself.
President Donald Trump had some advice for George Washington.
During a guided tour of Mount Vernon last April with French president Emmanuel Macron, Trump learned that Washington was one of the major real-estate speculators of his era. So, he couldn’t...

A Texas bill would make it possible to put women to death for having abortions
Via: Gordy327 • 59 comments • one week ago
Men and women, young and old, native Texans and immigrants, they rose to ask lawmakers to protect life, describing a “genocide” and foreseeing the arrival of “God’s wrath.” The act of public atonement they are seeking is passage of a bill that would criminalize abortion without exception, and make it possible to convict women who undergo the procedure of homicide, which can carry the death...

Wheaton scholars pen first 'Origins' college textbook bridging the Bible to ‘mainline science’

BALTIMORE — Wheaton College professors have penned what is believed to be the first college-level textbook outlining mainstream scientific theories on origins of life and how they fit within a biblical framework, something they say has been lacking in Christian higher education for decades.
Based on over two decades of teaching origins at the historic Illinois evangelical higher education...

How the Left Keeps Me Religious

Nothing keeps me religious more than the left, not even religion itself.
