St. Olaf Hate Threatens Conservative Students: At Least Two Leave School..

Republicans at St. Olaf are a tiny minority as students voted 82% to 10% for Clinton over Trump.  I wonder, if Obama was still president, would he would have the U.S. Department of Education investigate the hostile environment St. Olaf conservatives are facing on campus.

Minnesota: Your Urgent Action Needed to Ensure Self-Defense Bills Advance in the Legislature

Earlier this month, both House File 188, the constitutional/permitless carry bill, and House File 238, the stand your ground bill, were both held over by the House Committee on Public Safety & Security Policy and Finance with the intention of being included in the committee’s omnibus bill, House File 896.  It is imperative that you contact Speaker Kurt Daudt, Majority Leader Joyce Peppin, and Committee Chairman Tony Cornish to voice support for the inclusion of both HF 188 and HF 238 in HF 896!  Tell these legislators that law-abiding gun owners across Minnesota are eager to see these important self-defense bills move forward in the House of Representatives.

Media BiASSed: Daily Liberal Lunacy….

Nets Bury Gorsuch Hearing, Confounded by Lack of Dirt and Fireworks

NBC didn’t bury the story after a commercial break like the other networks, but they did try to paint President Donald Trump’s nominee in a highly negative light, literally. “Gorsuch says he met Mr. Trump when interviewed for the job,” reported justice correspondent Pete Williams on NBC Nightly News. While he was saying that, a dreary black and white clip of Gorsuch shaking Trump’s hand played in slow motion. It looking as though it was a scene out of a TV murder documentary.

Matthews Goes Bonkers, Demands GOP Confirm Garland or Else, Not Gorsuch

 

Loony MSNBC host Chris Matthews concluded Tuesday night’s Hardball with a loud berating of Senate Republicans and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not confirming Obama Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland, engaging in “low-level politics” harming the country.

Brian Williams Hopes Gorsuch Becomes Liberal on the Bench

 

After expressing his disappointment earlier in the day that Democrats had been unable to “lay a glove” on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch during Tuesday’s Senate confirmation hearing, during MSNBC’s 3 p.m. ET hour, anchor Brian Williams tried to assuage his fellow liberals by speculating that the conservative judge might shift left while on the high court.

Reporter Goes Where Liberal Media Won’t, Asks Spicer About MD Rape by Illegal Immigrant

 

Tuesday’s White House press briefing featured a question from WTTG Fox 5’s Ronica Cleary that went against the liberal media’s narratives of the day, asking press secretary Sean Spicer about the alleged brutal rape of a high school student outside Washington D.C. by an illegal immigrant.

Shocking Admission on Univision: Obama Policy Led To Rockville Rape

 

After several days of silence, Univision finally got around to covering the horrific rape at Rockville (Maryland) High School. In so doing, the network aired a stunning admission that blows its liberal narrative and immigration agenda completely out of the water.

Boom! GOP Congressman Schools MSNBC on Partisan, Anti-Trump Press

 

During an interview with Virginia Congressman Dave Brat on Tuesday, MSNBC’s Katy Tur got embarrassingly schooled on the fact that liberal media bias is a measurable fact. “Well, it’s hard on my side of the aisle. The press tends to be kind of like the faculty lounge where I taught for 20 years,” Brat joked, “I think 90 percent or so tend to be fairly Democratic. So, we always feel, you guys are kind of kind of coming after us.”

FLASHBACK: Networks Didn’t Give a Damn When Red China Helped Clinton Win in ’96

 

The Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) have devoted exhaustive coverage over the allegation that Russia may have interfered with the 2016 election, as most recently seen in their massive reporting of the James Comey hearings. But there was a time when they didn’t care when a foreign country tried to buy a U.S. election (Hint: It helped a Democrat). Back in 1996, China helped then-President Bill Clinton get re-elected by funneling money to the Clinton campaign

Team Building

Team Building

March 22

“…you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

Building a good team is key to the success of any enterprise. Jesus chose twelve unique individuals to build His world-changing enterprise. He intentionally chose several who had similar backgrounds–Peter, James, and John were fisherman. Matthew and Simon the Zealot came from opposing political views. Matthew came from an industry considered corrupt–he was a tax collector. It is clear Jesus chose those who had a skill set first, then changed the character of the individual. He mentored each one.

A good team needs to have team members with different viewpoints as well as those who are specialists in a particular area. It is noteworthy that Jesus chose someone expertise in handling money. Taking a team of twelve around the country required money and the ability to manage it. I’m sure Jesus spent a great deal of time with Matthew mentoring him on the proper use of money. He had to reshape his thinking about money.

Once the team was formed Jesus spent time molding His team into a cohesive unit to operate in unity. He corrected them when correction was needed. He taught them what it meant to love one another. He washed their feet. He taught and modeled servant leadership. Before you put a team together sit down and make a list of the skills you want represented on your team. Then recruit and invest spiritually into your team. Who knows, your team might just change the world, too!

Take and tell

March 22

Take and tell
For reading & meditation: John 20:10-18
“Go ‘ to my brothers and tell them ‘” (v.17)

Today, on this penultimate day of our meditations on Psalm 73, we face the important practical question: How do we go about the task of keeping close to God? Firstly, we do so by prayer. The person who keeps close to God is the one who is always talking to God. Many definitions of prayer have been given; I add another: prayer is co-operation with God. In prayer you align your desires, your will, your life to God. You and God become agreed on life desires, life purposes, life plans, and you work them out together. Secondly, we do it by constant study of the Scriptures. God’s Word is alive with meaning, and when you read it something will happen to you, for “the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword” (Heb.4:12, NKJ). Expect it to speak to you – and it will. Faith is expectancy: “According to your faith will it be done to you” (Matt. 9:29). Remember also to surrender to the truth that is revealed: “If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know ‘” (John 7:17, NKJ). In a moral universe the key to knowledge is moral response. The moment we cease to obey, that moment the revelation ceases to reveal. We do it, thirdly, by sharing with others. Remember, nothing is ours if we do not share it. When we share, the things go deeper inside us. We must share what God is doing, both with our fellow Christians and with non-Christians also. The psalmist’s last words are these: “I will tell of all your deeds.” We take and we tell – we take and we tell; these, we must never forget, are the two heartbeats of the Christian experience.

Prayer:
Gracious Father, I don’t want nearness to You to be an occasional experience – I want it to be a perpetual experience. Help me to pay the price, no matter what it costs. In Jesus’ Name I ask it. Amen.
For further study:
1. What was God’s Word like in Jeremiah’s heart?
2. What did the psalmist say he would do?
