Dustin Johnson lost his four-stroke lead today in the U.S. Open, shooting a seven-over par 77 to finish in a four-way tie for first place with a 213 stroke total. He is tied with defending champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 72, and both Tony Finau and Daniel Berger who shot a course-blistering 66. Finau and Berger took advantage of benign conditions of less wind and smoother greens by playing about four hours earlier than the leaders did. That’s the unfairness… Read more

Just minutes ago, at the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club on Long Island, New York, superstar Phil Mickelson very uncharacteristically hit a putt on a green past the hole that was going to speed up going downhill, and perhaps roll off green, and Phil ran to the moving ball and hit it back at the hole, past the hole. He then two putted from there. At the moment, it was unknown whether he made an 8 or a… Read more

Dustin Johnson–the tall, slim, dark-bearded, #1 pro golfer in the world with the swagger walk, rugged look, and Western gunslinger demeanor–grabbed a four stroke lead with a 36-hole total of 136, four under par, in the 118th U.S. Open staged this week at the historic Shinnecock Hills GC, Long Island, New York, today half way through the tournament that he won two years ago. Not to be counted out is Charlie Hoffman, tied for second at even par 140. He’s… Read more

The Southern Baptist Convention is going on this week. They are the largest non-Catholic church denomination in the U.S., consisting of 15 million people. The big news for the convention has been that Vice President Mike Pence, an evangelical Christian, is going to be one of the speakers. I lived in Houston, Texas, for almost forty years. So, being in the South, I’m quite familiar with Southern Baptists. In fact, I married one. I’ve had a lot of Southern Baptist… Read more

Michael Avenatti is the lawyer for Stormy Daniels, the porn star who sued President Donald Trump about her alleged sexual encounter with him in 2006. Avenatti was again making the rounds on TV news networks last night, specifically on Lawrence O’Donell’s “The Last Word” on MSNBC and Don Lemon’s “CNN Tonight.” On O’Donell’s show, Avenatti expressed some sympathy for Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal lawyer, with whom Daniels also has a lawsuit. It was because he said Trump is rejecting… Read more

As soon as President Donald Trump returned from his summit in Singapore with North Korean Supreme Leader Kim John Un, the president again said the American press is “the enemy of the American people.” He had said the same thing on February 17th, 2017, about four weeks after his inauguration as president. And he constantly labels the U.S. news media, both expressly and with his Twitter account, “Fake News.” Wrong! The enemy of the American people is President Donald Trump…. Read more

Yesterday, Dustin Johnson ran away from the field by shooting a four-under par 66 at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee, to win the FedEx St. Jude Classic by six strokes.

Johnson won this tournament in 2016, so he is primed to… Read more

Retired Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters has been a politically-conservative commentator and military analyst on television’s Fox News and Friends program for years. But early this year, he began speaking out critically of President Donald Trump. Then Peters resigned from Fox News. He has since called it “a propaganda machine” for President Trump. Wednesday, on CNN’s Andersen Cooper 360 newscast, Mr. Peters said of Russia’s president, “I am convinced that Vladimir Putin has a grip on President Trump.” It sure… Read more

In the book of Genesis we read, “The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, ‘You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die” (Gen 2.15-17). Then the text says God made Eve… Read more

Most Christians have believed that after Jesus was crucified he died, rose from the dead on the third day, was seen by his disciples on occasion, that forty days later he ascended to heaven from the Mount of Olives as his apostles watched him go. All of this is in the New Testament, in Acts 1.1-9. Most Christians also have believed that Jesus literally will return to earth someday, bringing the kingdom of God with him in all of its… Read more
