The PGA Tour’s Brenden Steele Redeems Himself at Napa

Is Donald Trump Hurting the U.S.G.A.?

Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, is scheduled to host the U.S. Women's Open golf championship next summer, on July 13-16. This premier event in women's golf is produced by the United States Golf Association (U.S.G.A.). And this exclusive, private golf facility is owned and operated by The Trump Organization. Since one week ago--when The Washington Post released a 2005 audio-video that was shown on television that day in which Donald Trump made provocative comments about his … [Read more...]

Women Will Send Trump to the Dump

Women are going to come out of the woodwork for this presidential election and send the Trumpster to the Dumpster. That's exactly where he belongs. Instead of strutting his stuff in his many elite, affluent, Trump National golf clubs, he should be swinging his golf club and thumping his golf ball into tin cans in the dump.It's because, in the second televised debate between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton on Sunday night, Donald Trump denied that he had … [Read more...]

“Locker Room Banter”?

Donald Trump has defended his sexually-vulgar remarks he made in 2005 in a taped audio-video released Friday. In it he brags about making sexual advances on women without their previous consent, even on married women, that includes kissing and groping them. He said on the video he gets away with it often because he is "a star." But yesterday, he dismissed it as "locker room banter."What locker rooms is he talking about? He's not talking about teenagers or young men in locker rooms after … [Read more...]

Dr. Wayne Grudem Should Have Known Better

Starting in July last year, I have now blogged about 25 posts against Donald Trump for president. As I stated in one of those posts, in all my fifty plus years as an American voter, I have never felt strongly against any Republican or Democratic nominee for U.S. president until this one. Moreover, I think Christians should be careful about expressing their political views, especially when they meet together as a church. I have been in an extremely political church, and I don't like it. Jesus … [Read more...]

Finally–Office of Religion and Global Affairs in State Department

For a long time, I have believed that the U.S. government makes a mistake by not educating itself about religion in its dealing with foreign affairs. Finally, Madeleine Albright, as President Bill Clinton's Secretary of State, declared that this was a problem that federal U.S. government officials needed to fix. Then when your tenure finished, she wrote a book on this subject showing her seriousness about it. It is entitled The Mighty and Almighty: Reflections on America, God and World Affairs … [Read more...]

Trump the Stump

A stump is the bottom of a tree that protrudes a little above ground after its entire upper portion has been severed and fallen to the ground. That's Donald Trump as of yesterday when The Washington Post and NBC released a 2005 audio-video of Donald Trump taped by Access Hollywood in which he and Billy Bush, host of Access Hollywood at that time, were riding in a bus and Donald Trump used vulgar language in describing his philandering, which some are now calling his assault of women.With one … [Read more...]

Continuing Jewish Settlements in West Bank

For multiple decades, both the United Nations and the USA--Israel's #1 ally and sugar daddy--have denounced Israel's continuing policy of increasing Jewish settlements in the West Bank. Why? It is hoped that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can be solved by creating a Palestinian state in the discontiguous Gaza Strip and West Bank, or portions thereof, with an approximately twenty-mile corridor joining the two land parcels. Why this land? That is where most Palestinians have lived and are still … [Read more...]
