House Dems Attempt Coup, Divert Media

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 7:29 am

Newt nailed it….and I couldn’t agree more:

“Pelosi is not leading an impeachment process. This is a legislative coup d’etat of a kind we have not seen in America. The left in the news media and the House want to destroy President Trump.They have been trying to destroy him since election night 2016.

“No one should be confused by the current phony, one sided, partisan impeachment. I led a serious impeachment effort with a special counsel who said President Clinton was guilty on count after count. Look at our rules for fairness and the lynch mob approach of Schiff and Pelosi.”           (Newt Gingrich on Fox and Friends this morning and Twitter.)
American political speech is increasingly partisan ...

This nonsense has to stop. While the House Dems are chasing their dreams, who is minding the shop? (The House is in lockdown accomplishing nothing.) They are trying to set the agenda and steer the media (most of whom agree) away from their wholesale sellout of American principles and their lame duck attempt at a presidential nomination process. This election cycle is not going to be pretty. It will be wholesale desperation and lies, so hold on, America, it’s going to be a nasty ride.

Memorial Day–A Day of Remembrance

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 4:19 pm

Today, we attended the first annual Memorial Day Remembrance at the newly renovated Soldiers Memorial in downtown St. Louis. Names of 554 active duty soldiers who died since the Vietnam War were read and will be engraved on the beautiful “Court of Honor” memorial in front of the Museum. Sparsely attended as it was, there was one glaring omission in the program. I have never attended any memorial service, military or civilian, that did not include a prayer. It was gravely missed. With all the beautiful renovations and upgrades since the MO Historical Society assumed control of the Memorial, I would hope that Missouri’s spiritual heritage and its traditional foundation and support of our military heritage would not also become casualties of the current cultural war of political correctness. Hopefully, this was a simple oversight and not a planned omission. May God continue to bless America, I pray.

Here is the program:

Today in Christian History – Jesus’ Triumphal Entry

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 6:05 am

Expectations were running high when Jesus entered into Jerusalem with the fanfare of the crowd and palm branches. They were greeting their would-be King and Deliver-Messiah. But…on a donkey? But He didn’t confront the dreaded and oppressive Roman government? He confronted the Jewish religious rulers and system instead. In less than a week, much of the crowd would turn against Him. Got questions? Watch this:

Make Jesus Lord of your life!

“…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”  Romans 10:9

Runaway U.S. House passes Leftist Unconstitutional Legislation

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 11:38 pm


H.R. 1 passed the U.S. House today on a strict party-line vote. The so-called “For the People Act” title is certainly reminiscent of 1950/60’s-style communist rhetoric. This hallmark legislation championed by the Democrat Party is nothing short of a power grab, taking Constitutional authority regarding elections from the states including sweeping new voter registration rules, promoting ill-conceived ethics reforms, and calling for D.C. statehood. The Democrat Party should be ashamed. This bill is unconstitutional, unwise, and unAmerican. This is a desperate political move to the far left. Americans should be aware and Dem House members should be placed ON NOTICE! I am praying that America wakes up to this crisis and speaks in 2020, if not sooner.

The Father of Our Country

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 1:13 am

February 22 marks the birthday of our first president, George Washington…my all-time favorite POTUS. He was the only president to be elected UNANIMOUSLY…TWICE! Washington was trusted, a gentleman beyond reproach, a man of deep and abiding principle based in his deeply held faith. Perfect, no–meritorious, yes.  It is unquestionable that George Washington was providentially preserved and used of God to help birth and lead the United States of America. His heart’s desire was to retire to his Mt. Vernon farm, but his sense of duty to God and country repeatedly brought him back to leadership. Henry “Light Horse Harry” Lee served under and was a close friend of General Washington. Lee’s eulogy of Washington forever endeared America to her first Commander-in-Chief and President:

First in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen

God bless George Washington.

Thank you, President Trump

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 11:27 am

The President’s 2019 State of the Union address will go down in history as an unequivocal stand for life, liberty, and property. He stood for life, the defense of our country, and our free markets. God bless you, Mr. President, as you flesh out your words in the administration of your high office!

Another New Year

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 4:45 pm


Another Christmas and another year is completing. What a beautiful season it is as we celebrate the birth of the Savior, the birth of hope, and the birth of a new year with all its fresh starts and dreams. This is a gift from God. And this is how we say thank you…All that we are, all that we have, all that we hope to be, we give to Him whose birth the angels sang! May God’s love, joy, and peace command our hearts as we enter 2019. If you have never given the reins of your life to Him, let Jesus be born in your heart today and crown Him Lord of all! This is what brings joy to your heart and JOY TO THE WORLD! God’s blessings to you!

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!  -2 Corinthians 9:15

Preparing to Vote

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 9:01 am
Note about this political cycle:
It’s almost over! I don’t particularly like talking about politics per se, but I am very concerned about America and most concerned about American’s who don’t know our history or our founding principles. When you don’t understand, it’s easy to fall for counterfeits and replacements. This election is chocked full of good and bad choices that either do or don’t reflect the values and principles that have made our country the envy of the world. Those values and principles do not carry partisan labels, but must be used to discern the good and the bad of candidates, judges, issues, and to see through their political labeling. That is not an easy job, and the easy way out would be to either not vote at all, or just vote on one or two of them and leave the rest. What I am about to say may be strong, but…it is irresponsible to not do your ballot homework. America is depending on you to make the right choices. Broad participation of an informed electorate is the key to good government. You cannot leave it to the partisan ballot box stuffers who only vote on one or two things. Do your own homework or find someone you really trust to help guide you. Elections have consequences. They do not just affect you, but your family and generations to come. I’m glad our founding fathers did not just think about themselves; they were thinking generations ahead. May God give us that kind of unselfish love and genuine patriotism as we prepare to enter the voting booth.
“Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.” – 1 Peter 2:17

Labor Day Then and Now

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 9:36 am

In America and around the world, Labor Day and “International Worker’s Day” has a checkered past. From the Chicago “Haymarket Riot” in May of 1886 to the “May Day” celebrations of Socialists worldwide, Labor Day in America has always endeavored to distance itself from the Communistic class struggle between workers and owners. It goes without saying that traditional and Fabian Socialists saw their opportunity to unite proletariat workers in their “plight” against the bourgeoisie. Class oppression and resistance has always been the rallying cry for them. This gave the division of labor new meaning! Enter U.S. labor unions and the seeds of American progressivism. Riots, muscle tactics, and organized crime quickly seized the early days of the Twentieth Century labor movement. Because of its history in America, Labor Day has meant different things to different people. But today–to most rank and file Americans–it means another holiday and a celebration of a different sort. It means a celebration of family and material abundance that is brought about by hard work. You can get ahead in America like no other place on the planet.

Part of the genius of the American free market economic system is the freedom to buy and sell, to start your own business or work for someone else, and freedom to enjoy the fruit of your own labors. Work (Labor) is good. Man was created to work and give expression to his purpose and potential and be recognized for it by his Creator. God gave us freedom to associate (organized labor) as well as freedom not to associate. God-given Liberty is precious and should be precious to us. But remember that we are individually held accountable for how we use the freedoms we enjoy. Someone else will not be held accountable for my choices; I must answer for my own actions. Organized labor MUST understand and reflect this principle of individual accountability. We would do well to heed those Biblical admonitions regarding our work and our rest. I am grateful today for our God-given freedoms and for their rightful and peaceful expression in the marketplace.

The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. The Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath, if you listen to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I charge you today, to  observe them carefully, and do not turn aside from any of the words which I command you today, to the right or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.  – Deuteronomy 28:12-14

Vote! Your Christian Responsibility and Civic Duty

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 7:44 pm

You think the political commercials are bad now. Just wait. The uber spin, half-truths, and ad hominem political ads are enough to make one sick of being involved in the political process. But you cannot, you must not, let that stop you from exercising your civic and moral responsibility; yes, moral responsibility.

Christians have a biblical mandate, by application, to:

Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare. (Jeremiah 29:7)

Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king. (1 Peter 2:17)

If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. (James 2:8)

In America, seeking the welfare of yourself, your family, friends, and neighbors, is to help protect them by casting an informed and God-honoring vote on issues that affect them all. What does it mean to “honor the king” in America? Who is the king? We the people reflect the sovereignty of God in our individual vote and participation in the political process. We don’t have a king in America; it is we the people who exercise our choice under God to establish godly righteousness in our communities and in our land. In America, we participate in our democratic process to “honor the king” by protecting we the people with a vote that understands the issues, the problems, and the solutions. That kind of vote requires genuine understanding, which requires time, effort, and prayer, and cannot be done without godly wisdom from the King of the nations (Revelation 15:3). American Christians cannot fully love their neighbor without expressing it through a godly, informed, and enthusiastic vote. We do not have the luxury of “skipping out” of our due diligence towards an informed vote. It is our responsibility; it is our Christian duty.

THE GREITENS DEBACLE BOMBSHELL AND THE U.S. SENATE RACE IN MO

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 11:32 am

The following observations only juxtapose the MO (former) Governor Eric Greitens debacle with the Missouri race for the U.S. Senate. More than enough has already been disclosed about the governor’s illicit tryst and the surrounding negligence and loss of integrity. But these issues do play a role in the current senatorial election. Greitens’ unfortunate demise is the result of his own arrogance.

MO Attorney General Josh Hawley is also a candidate for the U.S. Senate race. Regarding his role in the Greitens investigation, it is the MO attorney general’s responsibility to investigate any credible allegations such as falls under his constitutional purview. I think Josh Hawley was, and is, simply doing his job–not for political gain or expediency.

Who assigned blame to whom? Governor Greitens openly blamed the Democrats for the attacks against him. Democrats blamed the Republicans. Greitens supporters (mostly independents/libertarians) blamed Hawley. (These independent/libertarians are the ones supporting Austin Petersen in the Republican Senate primary.) Petersen is a secularist libertarian masquerading in Republican conservative clothing. He has exercised very poor judgment and rhetoric in blaming Hawley for all these troubles in MO. Tony Monetti, another candidate, followed Petersen right down this path of castigating Hawley with the notion that the Greitens investigation was a conflict of interest alongside a U.S. Senate campaign.  Both opponents have continually pelted Hawley with numerous allegations of RINOism, aspiration, elitism, cowardice, and other swamp-like tactics.   These are fatal, ad hominum mistakes and will not win them the nomination.

To date, I have not heard a negative word from Hawley regarding his primary opponents. He has taken the high road by taking the fight solely to his Democratic opponent. Josh Hawley has navigated this MO mine field with precision, (as has his Democratic rival). His primary opponents, though, articulate as they are, are being blown to smithereens. Their bravado will be their undoing.

Pride goes before a fall…always has, always will. (See Proverbs 16:18)

Tipping the Scales Our Way–It’s About Time

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 3:39 pm

The conservative legislature has finally hit on a potentially winning strategy: tipping the scale from the left’s growing welfare/entitlement dependents toward the middle-income tax-paying, tax cut recipients. We just might begin turning around the welfare culture with this one! Those on any kind of federal assistance/entitlement are approaching 50% of the population. That is a considerable voting block. And to make it more interesting, the liberals/progressives are taking a big, big risk as they now begin to roll out their new 2018 mid-term campaign strategy: REPEAL THE TAX CUTS, for the sake of rebuilding infrastructure, for the sake of “fairly” redistributing the economic pie Robin Hood-style, and (last but certainly not least) for the sake of maintaining their political power. (The left promotes bigger government, banking on more government dependency, which demands a continually growing revenue stream.) This interesting mid-term strategy battleground will play out this summer as “desperation mode” has now slipped from the right to the left. Let’s hope the battle is a victorious one for America, securing the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity. Perhaps we can tip the scales back from “In US we trust” to “In God We Trust.”

Billy Graham helped preserve America.

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 7:17 pm

America’s founding fathers understood the importance and role of spiritual vitality in the health of our nation. Without public virtue, the nation becomes corrupt, and without virtue a republic does not survive. Virtue cannot exist apart from religion. In their design of a new nation, our founding fathers depended on these truths.

It is the end of an era with the death of America’s premier evangelist, radio and television preacher, Billy Graham. His mission was to call America and the world back to God and he did that by preaching an unequivocal life-transforming gospel of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Dr. Graham and his associates pioneered mass-media evangelism and took the message to scores of millions of people. In the mid-20th Century, he and his beloved “team” were instrumental in resetting the conscience of America to God’s standards and affirming those timeless values necessary for a just and free society. Though this time period of spiritual renewal was not on the scale of America’s previous historic awakenings, God used this man to deliver a message of repentance and return to the God who blessed and established us as a nation. America has not seen that kind of renewal since. Who will take his place? Who will God use?

To the Graham family and BGEA associates, we offer or sympathies for their loss, and the country’s loss. “The Team” is all together again in Heaven. As we remember Billy Graham with gratefulness, may we also whisper a prayer to God for our nation that our hearts would be turned back to Him and His Word. May God once again bless America with spiritual leaders like Billy Graham, who take up the mantle of calling us back to our spiritual roots.

Wentzville–Proud of My Hometown

Filed under: Uncategorized — danielhite @ 8:14 am

The City of Wentzville is coming under fire because of their display of our nation’s national motto in the new City Hall.

http://www.ksdk.com/article/news/local/in-god-we-trust-motto-causes-controversy-at-wentzville-city-hall/63-511619332

No controversy here. When will people learn. “In God We Trust” is on our money and displayed in our halls of state and federal government, the Chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives, for one. The sentiment is enshrined and echoed in America’s founding documents as well as in the constituting documents of every state in the Union, including Missouri, just look it up. Like most people, I do not want a church-run state nor a state-run church. In that sense, I do believe in separation of church and state, but I do not believe in the separation of God from government.

For the naysayers, I ask:

“Where do our inalienable rights come from?”
They come from God—so says the Declaration of Independence (not to mention the Bible). I certainly don’t want government dispensing my rights to me. Rights are inherent and God-given, not man-made. We better all agree with that, because the Rule of Law depends on it—no person is above it because no person devised it.

“Don’t people have a right to believe or not believe in God?”
Absolutely, and they still do. But most nonbelievers I have talked to are glad that others believe in the God of a value system and legal system based on the Ten Commandments. Any American that does not believe in the value of the Ten Commandments misses the point of what a civilized nation is all about. The “law of nature and the law of nature’s God” are hallmark to our responsibilities as well as our rights. Watch these short videos for a great explanation from a non-Christian, Dennis Prager, regarding the wide application of the Ten Commandments in American society. It is still the best moral code the world has ever seen.

For ourselves, our families, and our friends and neighbors, “In God We Trust” is the best idea for the preservation of our freedoms and the living of our lives.
