Conservative Picks for the Kansas Primary

Published

on

I was interested to see if Kansas would look more like Nebraska or Oklahoma. By far Nebraska won. The Kansas GOP is in disarray. The Democrats are in such bad shape in Kansas, they ran as Republicans and won. Every Representative in the House is a RINO. Only one has a Conservative challenger. Each race however, is interesting in some respect. The 2nd District takes the cake for having the best chance to send a real conservative to DC. And that’s only because its a vacated seat. This seat could be in trouble because Paul Davis has $1000000 and a unified front to in the fabled blue wave to help him. The Kansas Primary has little chance of unseating any incumbents, nor would it really be of use to unseat the third or fourth district representatives.

Best Picks: Caryn Tyson, Nick Reinecker
Worst Picks: Roger Marshall, Ron Estes (both)
Best Race: District 2
Worst Race: District 4

District 1

After one term, Roger Marshall has proven to be an establishment hack. He is by no means Conservative. He is being challenged by Nick Reinecker. Reinecker’s first impression is strong enough to cast few doubts on his ability to be a better Representative than Marshall. He even comes with a promise to not vote for any bills with pork in them.

Conservative Pick: Nick Reinecker

District 2

District 2 is the race with the most action in Kansas Primary. A strong red district with a vacant seat is sure to create a feeding frenzy for Conservatives and big government Republicans alike. But Democrats have a million dollar candidate looking to make this seat competitive. The GOP has a trio of “young guns” vying for the nomination. On the outside, they all look strong, two state senators and an engineer. Steve Fitzgerald and Caryn Tyson are both in the State Senate. They are both more conservative than the average which says more about the Kansas legislature. Both are willing to buck the party line, but Caryn Tyson’s record is stronger. Enter the outsider, Steve Watkins. Watkins is claiming to be the outsider. He has the endorsement of RINO Roger Marshall, a red flag in a race such as this. He has no political history, and his positions are vague, which is less helpful when there’s no track record. Aside from being an outsider, its hard to see Steve Watkins as the pick in this race. Caryn Tyson presents a much safer option. She knows how to operate in the midst of several RINOs.

Conservative Pick: Caryn Tyson

District 3

Kevin Yoder has the highest Liberty Score of any Kansas politician. Yet he voted for omnibus. He is running against a RINO, Trevor Keegan. Keegan claims to be fiscally conservative and socially moderate. In politics, this is just a fancy way of saying you support a entitlement and defense spending. He would not uphold the Second Amendment. He doesn’t realize, as a challenger campaign finance reform has drastically reduced his chances, and is leftist on healthcare, immigration, and reversing the tax cuts. Tell me how believable his claims of reducing spending are.

Conservative Pick: Kevin Yoder

District 4

This race was spooky from the start. It features incumbent Ron Estes against Ron Estes. Incumbent Ron Estes is a RINO politician. Now will the real Ron Estes please stand up? That is what Ron M. Estes calls himself. But he’s a bigger RINO than the fake Ron Estes! He’s a Never-Trumper that went left like Rick Wilson and does nothing but complain about Trump. He supports Obamacare and gun control. he’s smart though. Running against the Congressman with the same name will surely give you a confusion bump, even if the ballot mentions the fake Ron Estes is labeled incumbent.

Conservative Pick: None

PragerU: Does race really matter?

PragerU Does race really matter

Leftwing talk about race frightens Dennis Prager and it should frighten you as well. There is a dangerous precedent being set by the left that is creating division where it no longer exists. Unfortunately, it definitely did exist in the recent past, but modern America generally does not look at race as much of an indicator anymore EXCEPT when the left makes it an issue. This is ironic, of course, because in their quest to supposedly eliminate racism, the left tends to make race a bigger issue than it needs to be.

We hear about cultural appropriations, certain races whose lives apparently matter more than others, and the deconstruction of our nation’s history based upon cultural norms from the time that are no longer acceptable now. Yes, many of America’s first people were racist. Some even owned slaves. Even after slavery was abolished, we experienced racial divides that continued through the civil rights movement all the way into modern times. But today, those divides are no longer as prominent. A black President was elected with a strong number of non-black voters behind him. Congress is more racially and sexually diverse than ever in our country’s history. We have more CEOs of major corporations who aren’t just “old white guys” than ever.

We’re crowdfunded. We need your help. Please donate today.

America is making strong strides to effectively eliminate racial inequality, but the push to keep the divide as wide as possible isn’t coming from the general conservative side of the political aisle. Yes, there are white supremacists who claim a portion of the right-leaning mantle, but they are infinitesimal compared to the standard masses of conservatives who have seen beyond race. The real cultural and racial divides are being perpetuated by the left, and in particular by our leaders from the Democratic Party who cannot have a future if they do not play the race card incessantly.

This video by PragerU shows the stark difference between Dennis Prager and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). As she vies for votes by playing the race card, Mr. Prager calls out the real racism in America that’s coming from the left.

What are the spiritual beings in the Bible?

What are the spiritual beings in the Bible

Most people, even those who haven’t read the Bible, are likely familiar with it enough to know there are two primary groups being discussed: humans and God in his three forms, also known as the Trinity. Those who have read the Bible realize there are other groups of being as well. These are the “spiritual beings” of the Bible – angels, demons, and everything in between.

While I don’t always agree with everything taught by the folks at The Bible Project, most of their perspectives are excellent. More importantly, they’re able to break down the complex elements of the Bible and retell the stories in ways anyone can understand.

They’ve begun a new series focused on spiritual beings that I’m very hopeful will be enlightening and exegetically accurate. This is an important teaching to understand. While I’d recommend reading one of Michael Heiser’s books on the subject, those who aren’t ready for lengthy research should at least take a look at this or other teachings. It’s an important topic, one that gets much less attention than it deserves.

As we continue to work on our Principalities and Powers Podcast, it behooves us that more people are aware of the forces that we don’t necessarily see that are at work around us. This is why we’re hopeful about this new series from The Bible Project.

The Catholic-Mulsim fraternity deal is anti-Biblical

The Catholic-Mulsim fraternity deal is anti-Biblical

Before I get into the meat of this subject, it’s important to be perfectly clear about one thing. This is not an anti-Catholic perspective. I not only love my Catholic brothers and sisters who follow the Bible and embrace Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I’m actually related to a great deal of them. Yes, the majority of my large family on my mother’s side is Catholic. Spent the day with about a dozen of them yesterday.

With that stated, the leadership of the Catholic Church and the direction of the Vatican are so far off course, it’s odd that so few are actually calling them out for what is arguably the most anti-Biblical action they’ve ever officially taken. As bad as the action was, I’m more concerned that it’s not getting nearly the press it deserves.

I’m referring to the agreement signed by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning. In this agreement, the truth of the God of the Bible is intermingled with the falsehood of the god of the Quran, Allah. Moreover, the call for the unification of religions in a fraternity of secular peace is disturbing, not because we’re against peace but because the call to make peace is done with an understanding that or beliefs are supposed to be secondary to the collective good in this world. Lastly and most disturbingly, there’s a line in the document that is drawing some ire, though not nearly as much as Bible-believing Christians might expect:

“The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in his wisdom, through which he created human beings.”

The wording here is very careful. They’re trying not to say God willed other religions as a path to find Him, but when read in context with the rest of the document, that’s exactly what they’re trying to imply. They’ve put Islam on equal footing with the Judeo-Christian religions by insinuating God and Allah are the same entity.

They are not.

Defenses of the document seem to focus on two notions. First, in regards to the controversial line above, they’re saying that religious diversity is similar to sex, race, and other things that are willed by God because many are inherently predisposed to follow the religions of the culture surrounding them. Their second argument is that God wants his children to find Him, and if that path must go through Islam or Hindu or any other religion, so be it.

This is heretical teaching. One must do some pretty aggressive hermeneutical gymnastics to say that since God created everything, and other religions fall into the category of being included in “everything,” then God created the other religions. As a loving God, surely He didn’t limit which people could find Him and live eternal life, right?

The Bible cannot be more clear on one important fact: there is only one way to everlasting life: belief and worship of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. The document insinuates Islam is a path to salvation since, hey, they believe that Jesus was a very important prophet, so they’re not totally wrong. If it leads them to Christ through a non-traditional path, so be it.

This is a very dangerous road, one that harms the way the Catholic Church leads its people. It’s time for Bible-believing Catholics to speak out against the heretical teaching their leaders have embraced.
