Message to America: Isn’t it Time to Take a Good Long Look in the Mirror?

The recent shooting in Florida, apart from being yet another horrendous loss of life, was yet another tragic pointer to a nation in deep, deep turmoil. It was, so the figures show, the 291st shooting in an American school since 2013. Of course, not all of them have led to fatalities, and certainly none were on the scale of the Florida massacre. But still: more than one shooting in a US school per week. Let that sink in. The aftermath […]

The Mueller Investigation’s Latest Nothing Burger

I had understood that the Special Counsel headed by Robert Mueller was set up to investigate allegations of collusion between the campaign team of Donald Trump and the Government of the Russian Federation. On this basis I had presumed that if any indictments were issued, they would at least attempt to prove that such collusion went on. However, in every case so far, the indictments have had nothing whatsoever to do with the central claim that the investigation is supposed […]

Somebody is Making Money Out of Turning Planet Earth Into an Asylum

What strange times we live in. Times in which a boy with perfectly normal XY chromosomes and intact male genitalia can think himself to be a girl, and instead of telling him “No Jonnie, it’s not your body or your chromosomes that are messed up, it’s your head,” we are apparently meant to encourage him in his delusion and spit venom at anyone who thinks that lopping off his thingy is a bad idea. Times in which the institution of […]

The Globalist Cabal Bring Their Lawless Revolution Home

One of the main points I made in my previous posting on the recently released Nunes memo, was that the big problem the US now faces is not that there has been a deep level of corruption and lawlessness in those organisations that are meant to enforce the rule of law, but that there are huge numbers of people in the political and media class that not only refuse to admit this, but are accusing those who have exposed the […]

The Nunes Memo, the Plot to Destroy the President, and the Writing on the Wall

So the Nunes memo has finally been released, and its contents are indeed damning, although nothing particularly surprising for those who have been paying attention. It has been clear for months that the entire basis for the Russiagate hoax was the so-called Trump Dossier; that this was an entirely unverified and uncorroborated document; and that — as I wrote here — it was quite obviously suspect since it was funded by Mr Trump’s political opponents, including the DNC and the […]

Gavin Williamson Unveils Britain’s New Energy Policy: When the Blackouts Come, Blame Them on the Russians

Having closed the coal mines, shut most of our coal-fired power stations, and having neglected to build more nuclear power stations, all the while erecting wind turbines that produce enough electricity each day to boil a kettle, I see that the British Government has come up with a novel way of dealing with the power cuts that are likely to hit us. You might think it would be left to the Energy Secretary to reveal the new plan of how […]

The Russiagate Hoax is About to Implode, But the Neocon/Trotskyist Cult’s New Cold War is Here to Stay

Back in November, I described Russiagate as A Convention of Village Idiots Holding a Never-Ending Hunt for a Non-Existent Needle in an Ever-Expanding Haystack. Well, it looks like the Convention might be nearing its end, not because the VI’s have actually found the needle they were looking for – you can’t find a non-existent needle, you see – but for another reason entirely. It’s because the haystack itself was entirely the creation of the US Intelligence Agencies, the Obama Administration, the […]

Can President Winfrey “Make America Love Again”?

It was a fine spring morning and President Winfrey leaned back in her chair, taking a look around the Oval Office, and breathing a long sigh – half relief, half sorrow. Yes, she had a multitude of difficulties and problems to deal with, but today – the 100th day of her Presidency – she was determined to enjoy. The celebrations were due to kick off shortly, with a number of carefully selected guests, a handful of schoolchildren and members of […]

Did President Swamp Just Say What the US Elites Have Long Thought?

It seems that we still don’t know for sure whether President Swamp did actually refer to certain nations — excluding Norway of course — as s******* countries. Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois is sure he did. Senator David Perdue is sure he didn’t. New reports suggest that he may have said another “s” word — not the same, but equally crass. Of course it’s easily imaginable that this oaf of a man, not exactly known for his carefulness or his […]

Difficult Bible Passages: Jesus and the Fig Tree

One of my regular correspondents, Richard, has asked for my thoughts on the “Jesus and the fig tree incident”. You know, the one where Jesus talks to a tree before cursing it. What on earth is that all about? Below is my attempt at making sense of it, but before that, here’s the passage in question: “On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he [Jesus] was hungry. And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he […]

Noah's Drunkenness by Jacques Joseph Tissot, 1836-1902

Difficult Bible Passages: What Did Noah’s Youngest Son do to Him?

“Noah’s Drunkenness” by Jacques Joseph Tissot, 1836-1902 “Noah began to be a man of the soil, and he planted a vineyard. He drank of the wine and became drunk and lay uncovered in his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brothers outside. Then Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned […]

Saudi Arabia’s Best Friend Cries About Human Rights in Iran

Are the recent street protests in Iran a genuine grassroots uprising against that country’s repressive government? Or is thus yet another regime change attempt from the people that messed up Ukraine, Libya and Syria? The jury may still be out on that one, but one thing is obvious, which is that the chief suspects in the regime change theory sure are enjoying themselves exploiting the opportunity for that end. Ahead of an absurd emergency meeting of the United Nations Security […]

A Tale of Two Decrees: Caesar’s Tax on All the World and God’s Gift For All the World

All quotations are taken from Luke 2:1-20. “In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.” Caesar Augustus was the ruler of the most powerful empire history had ever seen. His opinion of himself and the power he possessed was so great that he styled himself Divi Filius — Son of a God. Just in case anyone might miss the point, he had the title inscribed on every coin he issued for […]

Difficult Bible Passages: 1 Corinthians 11 – Hats and Hair

Some of my regular commenters seem to enjoy my attempts at Biblical expositions, so I thought it’d be good to start what will hopefully become a regular slot on TheBlogMire, where I give my thoughts on some of those verses and passages of the Bible that tend to make people go “huh?” First off is an amended piece that I wrote some years back for American Vision, which deals with a somewhat bizarre passage in 1 Corinthians 11:1-17, and which […]

Results of International Literacy Study Reveal Yet More Attempts by Russia to Meddle in Western Democracies and Undermine Our Way of Life

By the Blogmire’s resident Russia expert, Russ O’Phobe The recent news that Russia has topped the Progress in International Reading and Literacy Study (PIRLS), has sent shockwaves through the civilised world, with analysts believing that this is yet more evidence of a mendacious scheme by the Kremlin to destroy our values and way of life. The study, which is based on tests taken every five years, measures literacy rates amongst 10-year-olds around the world, with around 320,000 children across the […]

GOOGLE: Globalist Organ of Orwellian Groupthink and Liberal Engineering

Do you remember Google? It used to be a search engine. It used to be a good search engine. That’s why it became not just a search engine, but the search engine – so universally used that it became a verb: “Have you Googled it out”; “Let me Google that.” William Inge, Dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral in the 1940s once observed that “Every institution tends to produce its opposite,” by which he meant that all institutions have a tendency […]

The Unbiblical Teaching That Has Driven Donald Trump’s Jerusalem Decision

Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem, rather than Tel Aviv, as the capital of Israel seems to me to be an act of monumental folly, guaranteed to provoke a huge backlash and wave of anger across the Middle East. It will be sure to add to the ranks of Islamist terrorists. It will alienate still further some of the US’s supposed allies (such as Turkey). And it will increase the influence of Iran throughout the Middle East. In other words, […]

A Review of Christians in the Community of the Dome, by Julian Mann

Visiting the Millennium Dome in the spring of 2,000 was something of a seminal moment for me. New Labour had been in Government for just under three years, and although I had started to grow uneasy about what they were all about, I couldn’t quite put my finger on what exactly that was. The Dome changed all that. I travelled there with a reasonably open mind, thinking that given the huge sums of money they had spent on it, it […]

Russiagate: A Convention of Village Idiots Holding a Never-Ending Hunt for a Non-Existent Needle in an Ever-Expanding Haystack

Imagine a Convention of Village Idiots holding a never-ending hunt for a non-existent needle in an ever-expanding haystack. Every once in a while one of them finds a twig, or an old sock, or a marble, and with a look of sheer delight on their face they look up and squawk, “I’ve found it”. And all the other VIs gather round to marvel at the needle, and the news is published in the press across the country that they’ve got […]

If a Father Can be Described as a Mother, You Know it’s Time for Publishers of Dictionaries to Update Their Definition of Insanity

I’m thinking of suing my former school for misleading me during what they called “sex education” lessons. Although it is many decades back, I distinctly recall them telling me that the way babies were made was when a sperm, provided by the male, fertilises the egg, provided by the female. They assured me that the one providing the sperm is known as the father, whilst the one providing the egg is known as the mother. So imagine my surprise when […]

Dunker – The New Social Media Site Establishing Justice by the Mob Democracy

Welcome to Dunker, the world’s latest social media site. If you’re not familiar with how it works, don’t worry, we’ll explain it now, but it really is so simple that you’re sure to pick it up quickly as you go along. The idea behind Dunker was born out of a desire to make justice far more transparent and democratic. As we’re sure you’re aware, in the past the law has been the preserve of the elites, whilst the people have […]

Why CS Lewis Was Wrong When he Said Jesus’s Prophesy of His Second Coming Was “The Most Embarrassing Verse in the Bible”

In my last post, I made reference to CS Lewis’s comment that Matthew 24:34 — “Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place” — “the most embarrassing verse in the entire Bible”. In the comment section, Bruce from New Hampshire asks where Lewis made this statement. The answer is in an essay called, “The World’s Last Night,” and here is the quote in full: “‘Say what you like,’ we shall be […]

The Man of Lawlessness? The Son of Perdition? You Mean the Guy Jesus Dealt With 2,000 Years Ago?

Although I love writing about what the Bible teaches (or at least what I think it teaches), I know that whenever I do it will inevitably raise more questions than it answers, and that I’ll then have to spend time answering those questions, which in turn will lead to more questions, which will need more answers. And you know, there just aren’t enough hours in the day. But I’m a sucker for punishment, so here goes 🙂 Once again, I’m […]

Christ the Firstfruits, Then at His Coming Those who Belong to Christ.

One of my regular commenters, Phil, posted the following point in response to my previous article, Hey Pessimistic Christian, Cheer up. Christ Will Have Dominion. Because my answer is necessarily detailed, I thought I’d post it here. Here is Phil’s question: “Regarding the fact that the Lord Jesus will sit at God’s right hand *until* God makes all his enemies his footstool, your conclusion assumes that sitting at God’s right hand refers to the time between Jesus’ ascension and 2nd […]

Hey Pessimistic Christian, Cheer up! Christ Will Have Dominion!

Most Christians today have a very pessimistic outlook on the future of Christendom, not to mention the future of the world. They are not so much Amillennialists, or Premillennialists, but more Pessimillennialists — hamstrung with a pessimistic eschatology which comes mainly from what they see happening all around them. A failing church. Christianity being trampled underfoot and cast out. Doesn’t it signify the end times and Jesus’s coming soon to put an end to it all? Then there are those of […]

“It’s my Body”! Good. Then Love it!

One of the slogans used to justify the practice of abortion is this: “It’s my body – I can do what I like with it.” The reasoning is that since the baby is attached to the woman, it is therefore her right to choose what she does with it. Sort of like cutting off a limb, I suppose, although were women to start indulging in that practice, it is doubtful that feminists in general would be rushing to uphold it […]

Epicurus Trolls God’s Ability and Willingness to Deal With Evil; God Enters His Creation to Answer the Charge

My piece on Epicurus’s famous riddle last week garnered a number of comments. One of those was from one of my regular commenters, GV, who asked the question, “Is there any other religion that gives a solution to his riddle?” I got the impression the question was probably rhetorical, yet it’s a good question and deserving of some thought. The basic gist of what I wrote in that piece is this. Undergirding Epicurus’s riddle are two major presuppositions, both of […]

EXCLUSIVE: Explosive Recording of Nefarious Kremlin Plot to Undermine US Democracy Using Post-Election Puppy Ads

An explosive new tape has just been released of a discussion that is alleged to have taken place in the Kremlin in June 2016. The recording is said to feature the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, the Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergey Lavrov, with the three men discussing how they could interfere in the US election to ensure the election of Donald Trump. A transcript is below. Vladimir Putin (VP) – Gentlemen, as you know, in […]

Is Epicurus Neither Able nor Willing to Understand Evil and the Mercy of God? Then Why Give Him the Time of Day?

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? Thus spake Epicurus, the Greek philosopher who lived from 341-270 BC. The riddle is undoubtedly a clever one, and yet it turns out to be loaded with a couple of erroneous presuppositions: firstly, a flawed […]

The Christmas Spirit

I’m happy to announce that Day One have just published my third book — The Coming of the Saviour-King — which is basically a collection of the daily pieces I did for Advent last year. If you’re interested, you can get a copy here. Below is an excerpt from the introduction to the book. That Christmas has become commercialized, trivialized, tacky and secularized is probably a statement of the obvious. There is Santa. There is snow. There are reindeer. There are […]

SHOCK: The Island of Self-Gratification is Surprised to Find its Inhabitants Lack Self-Restraint

Imagine a couple of islands. Although they share many similarities — a similar climate and a similar population, for example — in terms of their values they could hardly be more different. The Island of Self-Restraint has what you might call a distinctly Christian ethos, especially in matters of family and relationships. For instance, marriage is seen as a sacred, lifelong covenant, and the overwhelming number of men and women on the island take their vows very seriously. In the island’s […]

And all the Church Cried out to God?

I write this piece under the assumption that it will be read by those who are in some measure distressed by the current state of the culture in which they live. In many ways our situation is unique. Has there ever been a time when people thought that a marriage didn’t necessarily need a man or a woman? Of that it was okay to kill babies by the million under the banner of choice? Or when a man could just […]

President Swamp Throws a Bone to His Delusional Supporters Then Threatens to Kill 25 Million People

I am starting to wonder whether the Deep State has successfully managed to clone Donald J Trump, the man who was elected to the office of 45th President of the United States last year. And while he is hanging out in a deep (state) freezer somewhere, his neocon-programmed doppelganger now occupies the White House and is bent on threatening everyone whom his handlers decide need roughing up. I jest of course, but only because after reading his speech to the UN General […]

Exclusive Preview of Hillary Clinton’s Latest Book: I, Victim

Due to the stunning success of her recent book, What Happened, which received nothing but five star reviews on Amazon, Hillary Clinton has responded to the public adulation and demand for her thoughts on last year’s election by quickly penning a sequel. I, Victim sees her carrying on the theme of her unexpected loss, but this time she takes the reader on an even deeper personal journey into the reasons, and the agony she has consequently suffered, having been denied her […]

The Lights go out in Washington as the Swamp Creatures Become Comfortably Dumb

The speed at which the US elites continue their descent into madness is nothing short of astonishing. Their arrogance, which had been par for the course for some time, is now matched by a level of stupidity that truly takes the breath away. Here’s the latest: Earlier this year a person named Steven Mnuchin was somehow given the job of US Treasury Secretary. I say somehow, because as a former banker at Goldman Sachs and then manager of the George […]

“Bigot. Extremist. Homophobe. Fascist. Nazi. Dinosaur.” The Grand Inquisition of Tolerant Intoleristas Throws its Dazzling Lexicon at Jacob Rees-Mogg

I must say that seeing the treatment meted out to Jacob Rees-Mogg on Good Morning Britain, and the subsequent reaction of the Grand Inquisition of Tolerant Intoleristas was actually quite a liberating experience. I came away from it the following thought: “You know. I really don’t care one teensy weensy little jot what these people say or think.” But why? Why oh why do I find myself not caring very much that someone somewhere might be offended at my failure […]

US Foreign Policy in the Hands of Tinpot Bandits

When I think of the US elites and their foreign policy decisions, all that comes into mind is an image of Yosemite Sam. Like Yosemite, they think they run the place. The world I mean. Like Yosemite, they seek to lay trap after trap for their apparent enemies, only to see each plan backfire spectacularly. And like Yosemite, as each plan fails, they hop up and down with barely concealed rage, steam starts coming from their ears, and then they’re […]

Princeton Scientists Cause Uproar by Discovering “Sex Chromosome”

Warning: This piece may contain traces of satire. Scientists at Princeton University say they have made a startling discovery which could change the way we think about biological sex. Until now, it had been assumed that the sex of a person was not fixed, and could be changed according to how a person felt, but according to the team of researchers, their new findings could blow that idea out of the water. According to the scientist leading the research, Professor […]

A Short Break From the Asylum

I just returned from a short break with my family to the Derbyshire Peak District, where amongst the many blessings was the fact there was no internet connection in the place we were camping. In fact, the first time I got even the remotest hint of one was when we ascended to the highest point in the area, Kinder Scout, where suddenly it came alive again. Now before you get the idea that I’m about to have a go on […]

The Colour Revolution Returns Home as the Mob Sniffs the Whiff of Anarchy

When I watched the following video for the first time, one word kept on flitting it’s way in and out of my mind: Demented. Judge for yourselves:     There they are shouting and spitting and kicking at a statue. A statue! As they do so, no doubt they’re congratulating themselves on their goodness, tolerance and liberal values, not to mention their enlightened views. Is this Monty Python? It’s almost comedic, until it hits you that the line between people doing […]

Charlottesville and the 200% Guilt Pie

I want to say a few things about what happened in Charlottesville, but before I get there I want to first set the scene by talking about one of the most egregious errors of the modern world, which is the misunderstanding of how guilt is apportioned. Let’s begin by imagining a squabble between two siblings. We’ll call them Joseph and Sam. They are arguing over a toy, and eventually Joseph snatches it, even though it belongs to Sam. Unhappy that […]

Fire and Fury? Or Dumb and Dumber? The New Hollywood Blockbuster Featuring Captain Trump and Other Assorted Megalomaniacs

Regular readers may be aware of my fondness for recalling these words from George W. Bush’s Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove: “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to […]

Rebekah Brings Blind, Backslidden Isaac to Repentance

I had some good comments on my piece about Esau the other day, and once again I thought it would be helpful to post one of my responses which was fairly lengthy, but which is worth an airing here as it will probably prove to be quite surprising, and more than a little thought-provoking to anyone interested in such things.   So here’s a summary of the questions, which were once again posted by Phil:   When Esau sold his […]

Esau’s Repentance? Ain’t Worth a Mess of Pottage!

One of my regular readers, Phil, posted a comment at the bottom of a recent piece, with some great questions on the nature of repentance and God’s judicial hardening. I promised I would try to answer these questions as best I could, but since my response has turned out to be really rather long, rather than posting it on the comment section of that piece, where no-one except Phil will read it, I though I’d post it as a separate […]

Exclusive Excerpt From Hillary Clinton’s New Book, “What Happened? They Stole it From us, Precious”

Chapter 1 — How her right to rule was stolen The creature Rodham had once believed herself to be in possession of a secret treasure that had been her birthright from long ago: the right to rule them all. It was the one thing she loved, her “precious”, and she had thought of it and talked about it often, even when it was not with her. And yet just at the moment when she believed it to be within her grasp, […]

From Servants of the People to Servants of the Agenda

As a resident of Salisbury, I was interested to see a number of – shall we say – agenda-driven Tweets this week, from an organisation calling itself “Wiltshire Police”. There was this, for instance: “Hate has no home in Wiltshire. Report anything that makes you question if you’re being treated fairly #999WhatsYourEmergency”. Anything? My children were particularly pleased to see that. They often find themselves to be the apparent victims of terribly unfair treatment, such as not having the same […]

More Transgender Rights? No, its Only the Death of Meaning, Dear!

So here we are on the cusp of gaining the “right” to alter our own birth certificates to change the sex that the midwife proclaimed when we exited our mother’s womb. Midwives? They know nothing. For millennia they have had the audacity to look between the legs of newborn babes and declare them to be boys or girls, solely on the basis of certain anatomical features. All about transgender rights is it? No. It’s the latest in a long line […]

Sensational Report: Is Russiagate a Hoax Ordered by Vladimir Putin?

By the Washington Post’s Russiagate correspondent, Russell O’Phobe (Warning: This piece may contain traces of satire) For almost a year, Russia’s meddling in last year’s election, along with collusion with the Trump campaign, have dominated the political and media landscape. But an explosive new classified report produced by US intelligence may be about to blow apart the narrative, and reveal an even bigger story that has been missed in all the commentary so far. The report was set up to […]

You Know What You Remind me of Man? A Beautiful Painting Daubed in Graffiti and in Need of a Work of Restoration

I recently engaged with someone on a comment thread under one of my articles for The Conservative Woman, on a point which is — in my experience — a very common response to Christianity. The commenter said that Christians seem to claim a monopoly on doing good deeds, and he then went on to mention that although he is not religious, he both believes in doing good and actually does it. Since this is such a common response to Christianity, […]

Our Implacable and Unmerciful Commitment to Tolerance

In the second half of the first chapter of his epistle to the Romans, the Apostle Paul gives a grim picture of what happens when a society that once had some knowledge of God rejects him. One of his major themes is that their view of sex and sexuality becomes horrendously skewed (sound familiar?), but he also gives a list of the sorts of attitudes and behaviours society will experience in their wilful rejection of God. Amongst other things, he […]
