The Oklahoma City Civic Center hosted a public black mass on August 15. The purpose was to mock God and worship Satan and it was specifically held in a public building to legitimize Satan worship and criticize Biblical Christianity.

Want to find out the truth? Ask a retired teacher who has no fear of the Teachers’ Union from speaking out.

Cleaver, who was black, was born in […]

The Wall Street Journal noted that two years ago, the European Central Bank cut interest rates below zero to encourage people to spend more. They gave […]
It has occurred to me that the upcoming general election on November 8 just could become one of the most corrupt, in the sense of illegal voting, in history. It was my personal observation – while a county Republican Party official – of a number of instances of rather intense fraudulent ballot actions in elections […]
I reached a mile marker this week, and it has hit me fairly hard. I tried to convince the government I wasn’t old enough, but last week, they made me apply for Medicare. First of all, I’m not sure who this Medi is and whether or not she really does care. Second, everyone in the […]
If you’re a football fan, this is your time of year. Well the college football season gets underway this weekend and the NFL isn’t far behind, but honestly I’m not talking about American gridiron football, but rather what we call soccer.

BRANSON, Mo. – It takes a lot of energy to spin the paddlewheels that propel the Showboat Branson Belle.

BRANSON, Mo. – Watching this show, you keep asking yourself, “How did they do that?” and “That is hard to believe.” Maybe that’s where they got the name for Hamner’s Unbelievable Variety Show.
