1776 is OK, But 1787 Is Where It's At! - Happy Constitution Day!!

9/25/2023
Constitution Day is to Independence Day what Easter is to Christmas. Without Easter, there would be no Christmas because it's the resurrection that makes Christ's birth notable. Similarly, without Constitution Day, there would be no reason to celebrate Independence Day as we would have likely been swallowed back up by the British Empire, and you know they don't celebrate the 4th of July. Join this podcast for a little history and for my tribute to a group of men who were truly remarkable and are deserving of our heartfelt gratitude. We should be making more statues of them, not tearing down the ones we have. 0:00 Introduction 2:33 Declaration of Independence overview 3:28 Articles of Confederation (our first constitution) and all the problems it caused 6:30: Constitutional Convention convened to amend Articles of Confederation 7:52: Washington, Hamilton, and Madison had different plans though 10:33: The Constitution was signed, but that wasn't the end 13:59: Four miracles that made the Constitution possible 20:22: The best spirits God could find, they were NOT evil

Our Discipline Deficit is Killing This Country (Part 2) | We Have To Start Fixing This in the Home

9/18/2023
I start by sharing my experience training our dog. After that, I walk you through how that led me to some insights into the importance of discipline. Self discipline has almost become a four letter word in our culture, but rather than run from it, we desperately need to reinstate its importance in our personal lives, our family lives and in our society at large if we ever wish to return to being a nation capable of governing itself. I also share some thoughts on principles we should keep in mind while disciplining our children. Join me for the second of this two part series, and recommit to leading a disciplined life of Christian service.

Oliver Anthony Shares The Key to Saving America (Hint - It's NOT Trump or Biden)

9/4/2023
While Trump proclaims his intentions to retaliate for the persecution he has undergone if he is able to reclaim the White House, Oliver Anthony shares what we actually need to change the individual and collective souls of America. The answer is not retaliation and revenge, it's not Trump, and it certainly isn't Biden. What we need is virtuous charitable leadership that will put God first before all other considerations. Only by playing for God's team do we open ourselves up to his power and aid. We didn't become a nation without Him, and we will be powerless to repair our nation without Him.

Standing Against Transgender Ideology in Today's World is an Act of Pure Love

8/28/2023
In a head to head debate where logic and common sense are allowed, it's not hard to defeat the arguments of transgender activists. This movement has only been so successful because it has figured out how to shout so loudly that neither they nor you can hear the arguments against it. Cold logic though, does not also help though when on a personal level you are required to confront this issue with some you love. How do you balance Christian love with a bold declaration of Christian and scientific truth? Join me in this podcast where I share some principles that have helped me navigate this tricky balancing act in my life.

Specialization - Too Much Can Kill You | The Dangers of Outsourcing Too Much (Part 2)

8/21/2023
Allowing people and countries to specialize in certain things has undoubtedly raised the standard of living for most people on the globe. If there's one thing that COVID taught us though, it's that specializing too much and sacrificing self reliance on the altar of efficiency and maximizing the amount of stuff we can produce and consume is a terrible idea. In this series, I explain some basic economic principles and show how specialization tempered with a focus on self reliance around the necessities of life is not only a good idea, but it's essential for surviving the calamities foretold prior to the second coming of Christ.

Abortion - We have to do something to end this evil, and we can't let our comfort keep us from trying

7/17/2023
In this episode, we follow up last week's discussion of childhood sex slavery with the other great evil plaguing our time - abortion. Just like we have to animate ourselves to do something, ANYTHING, to end child slavery, we have to do something to end the mass genocide of unborn children that has been legalized and celebrated the world over. "How can a people like this, that are without civilization— (And only a few years have passed away, and they were a civil and a delightsome people)... How can a people like this, whose delight is in so much abomination—How can we expect that God will stay his hand in judgment against us? Behold, my heart cries: Wo unto this people. Come out in judgment, O God, and hide their sins, and wickedness, and abominations from before thy face!"

Happy 4th of July - My Tribute to Thomas Jefferson - He's not as bad as he's made out to be

7/3/2023
To celebrate the 4th of July, I pay my tribute to Thomas Jefferson by providing a defense for him against some of his most scathing critiques. Some of them are downright false and others are taken horribly out of context. Join me as we learn about him, the world he lived in, and his incredible contribution to freedom for countless individuals.

Celebrating our National Pride in Immoral Behavior is Societal Suicide!

6/26/2023
I can't led pride month pass without a conversation about the link between a society practiced in bridling sexual appetites and liberty. A society full of people that can't govern their sexual impulses is simply a society in decline. There is no example in history of a society who survived a wholesale acceptance of immorality. Strangely enough, if you struggle to control basis human impulses, you don't have the moral backbone to be able to handle maximum freedom.

Trump Arraignment - Are We Now a Banana Republic? | We need a George Washington, not a Trump or Biden

6/19/2023
Trump's arraignment has been all over the news, in large part because of Biden's departure from hundreds of years of precedent of NOT using political power to go after political opponents. This is the stuff that banana republics and dictatorships are made of. In Trump's speech after the arraignment, he said the cat is out of the bag, and there's no going back. If elected president in 2024, he says, he'll go after Biden in retaliation. Join me in this podcast where I make the case that we don't just have to accept our induction into banana republican-hood. We can reverse course, but it takes a special king of leader. A leader made of the same stuff that George Washington was made of... And that's not Trump.

Preparing for Armageddon and Is That Really Where We Are Heading?

6/9/2023
This world is insane, and evil is everywhere. I don't know if Armageddon is right around the corner. But if it is, I talk what we need to have in place to be prepared for it. I also talk about how fear is the least of the feelings we should have about end-of-days tribulation because, on the other side of the hard, is Christ's coming and 1000 years of unparalleled peace. The Founder pushed through the terrible because they hoped for something better on the other side of that. We know what's on the other side of the crazy, and it's amazing beyond imagination! This is one episode that you don't want to miss. The future is bright, and we can be prepared for it if we lay it all on the altar and let God direct our footsteps.

Congress' Spending Bill and Debt Nightmare - What We MUST Do To Course Correct

6/5/2023
The House just passed a spending bill in order to avoid breaching the debt ceiling. Some paint this as a great victory, others as a necessary compromise, but the truth is that Congress is absolutely out of control and the “right” path should have been obvious to Republicans and Democrats alike given the shaky economic environment we find ourselves in and the already insane amount of debt our country carries. Rather than behave responsibly, our representatives seem determined to drive us over a financial cliff as quickly as humanly possible. You don’t want to miss this episode. I go into the history of the national debt, the tenuous situation we find ourselves in, and the mindset we need to have if we are to have a hope of course correcting.

Throw it at the wall and see what sticks is NOT Constitutional: A look at immigration and congressional budgeting

5/29/2023
In this episode, Braeden looks at how immigration laws and policies in recent years as well as Congress' bad habit of raising the debt ceiling and passing continuing resolutions are unconstitutional and violates the rule of law. He also talks about how desperately we need to elect leaders who will do what is right, legal, and Constitutional even if it is unpopular and goes against our personal preferences. We must choose righteousness over all else. When we choose wickedness, the destruction is what we can expect.

Deep Dive - Separation of Powers & Checks and Balances

5/22/2023
Politicians these days might talk about separation of powers and checks and balances, but they are more buzzwords than guiding principles. That needs to change. In this episode, I deep dive into both in preparation for next week's episode where I will explain several contemporary issues where they have been violated and ignored and what we can expect in the future if we allow that to continue.

Keep the Ravenous Wolves Out! | My Tribute to Motherhood

5/15/2023
Braeden shares a scripture about the Good Shepherd and the importance of relying on Him to keep the ravenous wolves out. He looks at different ways our society has allowed ravenous wolves to, not only enter our fold, but in many cases we've given them a place of honor. One of the biggest "wolves" we've allowed into most of our homes is the wolf of undermining families and motherhood in particular. Mothers are NOT dumb or clueless. They are the authors of our future, and they deserve more respect than any job, degree, or worldly achievement. God bless all the faithful mothers out there!
