[Editor’s Note:  It is a thrill to know that Nathan Dahm will run for this open Congressional seat in 2018!  The first time he ran for the seat in 2010, he was not very well known in the district.  That will not be the case this time, being known as the guy who beat Piers Morgan on his own show!  He is the only announced candidate to my knowledge with an in office voting record and Nathan Dahm’s voting record is sterling.  He is one of the top ranked conservatives by multiple sources for multiple years.  More than that he is loved by the people he represents because he works to protect and defend their rights.  We need to keep this congressional district in good hands.  Go Nathan!  Our prayers are with you Nathan – may His blessings continue to be upon you!/sc]

Stem Cell Therapy for Ivory

… a story about potential help for cats experiencing kidney failure
by Sandra Crosnoe

Ivory is 15 years old (2017) and recently she was getting pretty lethargic, loosing weight and not grooming herself properly, so I took her to Arrowhead Veterinary Clinic in Dewey on January 25th. They did a blood analysis on her and found she was in early stage renal (kidney) failure. This is the story of how we discovered stem cell therapy and what that process has been like for Ivory.

New Series for New Moms — Dear Mama by Rachael Joy Tapp

If you are just starting a family or well on the way you don’t want to miss this series.  i’ve only known Rachael Joy Tapp for a few years, but it seems like we’ve been friends forever.  She has wisdom beyond her years.  She lives in the Panhandle with her husband, Joshua and their children.

Rachael and Joshua lost their first child during the pregnancy. They have a precious two year old daughter, Hadassah, and just recently gave birth to premature twins, Levi and Gideon.  So she has a bit of life experience but she wraps that in practical tips and guidance from above.   I know you will enjoy each segment so be sure to connect with her and her blog.   I will try to add links to this post as they are released.

Here is her own bio in her own words.

Here is the series announcement.

Article one: Dear Mama, Who Just Gave Birth

Article two: Dear Mama, Who Wonders why Kids are like This

William Norman Grigg died this afternoon. He was a journalist, broadcaster, editor, musician, father, husband, and self-described Christian Individualist. He was also my hero.

Will’s main beat was stories about individual victims of the state: particularly Americans who have been unjustly imprisoned or wrongfully assaulted by government officers. His research for each article was exhaustive. From his home in Idaho, he traveled all around the northwest to get the story in person. He would get to know each subject personally, and seek face-to-face interviews with their powerful persecutors. His tireless work has saved several innocent lives from being slowly drained away in prison. He wrote so many pieces about Christopher Tapp, a man who has spent two decades in prison for a murder he did not commit, that the Libertarian Institute, where he was managing editor, will publish a whole book collecting them.

Trump says a lot in a few words  “We must do a lot more with less”  Hiring freezes are already in place and he is working on a cabinet that knows how to manage wisely.  All this bodes well for the overworked American taxpayer.

Congratulations to Mick Mulvaney — here’s the backstory and some insight into how good he is as an appointment .

“Part of the job is saying ‘no,'” Mulvaney told The Post and Courier on Friday, less than 24 hours after being sworn in as the new Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Finding Gems & Sharing Them – President Trump on Budget & Spending Cuts along with the Mulvaney Appointment – a real win for the Taxpayer!

“For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.”

(excerpt from Inauguration Speech by Donald J. Trump on January 20, 2017)

scott-adams-blog-dilbert-a-targetThis weekend I got “shadowbanned” on Twitter. It lasted until my followers noticed and protested. Shadowbanning prevents my followers from seeing my tweets and replies, but in a way that is not obvious until you do some digging.

Why did I get shadowbanned?

Beats me.

federal-revenue-by-type-1900-2020-by-gary-north-the-revolutions-wereRevolutions do not occur overnight. They build up over a long period of time, and they take place very rapidly. This phenomenon applies to many areas of life. The old story that Hemingway wrote about the man who described his bankruptcy went as follows: it went slowly, and then very fast.

A good friend of mine, brother in the Lord, mentor, teacher, prayer warrior and encourager in spiritual matters all, Morris Salge, has taken on the task of writing some devotionals for disciples of Christ in business primarily (but life in general).  I have had the distinct honor of getting to review these devotionals and help a bit with the website.  It is an honor, but it has also been hard, as they are not for those who are not seeking Him above earthly treasures.  If you want devotionals that tickle the ears and make you giggle skip these.  If you want to find and hear the Lord above all the noise around us, then dig in and prepare to be challenged.

Is the Lord in the Storm with you?  Are you listening to Him or are you trying to steer the boat?

Vaxxed Extended to June 16th in OKC / to June 23rd in Tulsa  — Do Not Miss this Movie!

VAXXED has been extended in Tulsa and OKC due to popular demand – please share and by all means see this movie with friends and family! Your child’s health may depend upon it.

I attended last weekend in Tulsa.  VAXXED documents the inside track on dangers of vaccines and linkage to rising rates of autism especially related to early vaccinations with MMR vaccine. The story is from the perspective of a high ranking CDC whistleblower.  Warning — Parents be informed and beware.  The CDC behavior in the matter is nothing short of criminal. It was certainly not protecting the people that the organization was chartered to protect and those paying their salaries as well!

Details below; showings thru June 16th now!
