Mike Evans
June 28, 2017

The media say they are the torch for freedom and the key to a healthy democracy. So it’s no surprise that they’re outraged at President Trump, who has branded much of them as “fake news.” But the president is right.

What exactly is “fake” news? The word fake means to conceal the truth in order to deceive. Who decides what is news? What is the objective of the news? Is it to deceive? Why is the majority of the news the same? Why is it rarely ever good news?

Everyone Wants Toilet Paper. Why Doesn’t Venezuela Have Enough?

Americans once used corn cobs. Ow. And oyster shells. Really ow. The ancient Romans kept sponges on sticks in their public restrooms, left in salt water between users. Not ow but eeeeuw. The man who invented toilet paper, he did mankind a great good.

Ask the Venezuelans. A few years ago their country had a functioning economy. People could buy food, and things like aspirin and shoes. Diabetics could get insulin. Venezuelans were set for toilet paper. Now, they can’t even get necessities like those. If they can find them, they have to pay huge amounts of money to get them.

How does this happen?

If a baby survives an abortion, “most likely we would break the baby’s neck.”

That’s what an abortionist told one woman at the Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Paul, Minnesota earlier this year. She had gone to the clinic for a second-trimester abortion and after starting the process decided she wanted to keep her baby.

She described her experience in a videopublished Tuesday by Pro-Life Action Ministries. Her identity in the video is disguised for her own safety.

This is the greatest challenge the Church faces today: The machinery of leftism has no brakes to stop itself.

Leftists run America’s centers of cultural influence. Hollywood. Universities. Mainstream media. Leftist leaders are drunk at the wheel, with innocent people in the back seats.

It’s our duty as Christians to wrestle the left away from the controls, before it drives us all off a cliff.
