Playing by the Rules

One thing I learned while being a sports official, is when a team is outmatched by talent, they begin complaining about the officiating. Never mind the unwinnable unforced errors and turnovers they make, they're losing because the officiating is horrible.

This is now the tactic of the Democrat Party.

My advice to coaches was to work on fundamentals, never trying to keep up with being outmatched. Just hustle and improve and your players will eventually get better, if not the best.

The Democrat Party base is made up of radical left wingers who will not denounce the violent actions of ANTIFA, and are even encouraged by their political leaders to be hostile towards political opponents.

If they win, then elections have consequences and we're told to get over it. There's truth in that.

However, when Democrats lose they decry the system they had previously won in, and now it must be changed or usurped by hostile means.

Most Americans are fair-minded people; they know how the system works. As my good buddy Steve Deace always says, elections are won by the candidate who gets the most votes, not the party with the most registered voters.

The way to win at the political game is voter turnout. You've already seen how the Democrats intend to rule if they win.

To keep them in the loser's bracket, our team needs to have more in the voting booth than they do.

Be sure to vote on Tuesday, November 6!

California Schemin’

If California Governor Jerry Brown and Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf support open borders, designate themselves as a sanctuary state and city, and interfere with immigration authorities from enforcing the law, I have a remedy.

Pull all border agents from the southern border of California, and place border protection on California's borders with Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon.

Of course it would be preposterous to do such an undertaking (or maybe not).

However, how preposterous is it for California to expect the federal government to control its borders and then not only ignore our immigration laws, but to also interfere by aiding and abetting illegal aliens?

I don't think a lawsuit is worth the time. Congress needs to take punitive action against the People's Republic of Kalifornia (PRK).

The PRK has discussed seceding from the United States. As tempting as it may sound, it would totally backfire on the once-Golden State. I did a podcast last year explaining why.

Illegal aliens cost California taxpayers more than $25 billion a year, while only receiving an estimated $5 billion in tax revenue from illegals. And their state legislators wonder where all the money goes...




Political Profiteering of Parkland

It was less than an hour after recording my latest Truth Watch Radio podcast that the Democrat Party validated what I was speaking against. The Dissolute Dems had Sara Imam, a survivor of the Parkland school shooting, affix her name to a fundraising email they sent out.

Of course the Dems didn't completely show their slip in the email. They masquerade their true intentions by having you commit to vote, and once you click on the button, you must leave your name, address, and phone number. You must do that to commit. Notice, (by clinking on the picture below) the not-s0-fine print above the form (right below the sentence that begins "Be one of the first people...):

When you give out your phone number, you are agreeing "to receive call to that number from the DNC and each of the individual state parties."

What are the chances those calls and texts are going to be fundraising efforts? I'd say 100%.

Of course, the Dems will counter with a false moral equivalency by saying the NRA is fundraising off of the Parkland shootings. However, when you barely scratch the surface of their emails, it is in response to the Dems once again using a shooting tragedy to make a grab for our guns.

The NRA is being blamed for this shooting. All the NRA does is defend our 2nd Amendment Rights. The NRA is accused of owning politicians, but what does the Truth reveal? As Rush Limbaugh spoke of on his Thursday show, the NRA pales in comparison to the labor unions.

It is shameful how the Democrats are once again exploiting and implementing victimhood to hide behind their true agenda: fundraising and trampling on more of our individual liberties.


Below are the three pages of the email I received from the Democrat National Committee (It says there are four pages, but one printed out blank). You can decide how you feel about this whole episode.









Hope is Still Eternal

It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since I got the call I didn’t want to hear. On September 19, 2007 at 2 pm central time my phone rang, and when I saw it was Eddie’s mom, I knew.

It was as though the Holy Spirit whispered to me, “Steel yourself; this is it.” My ex-wife Tina was crying and told me our son, SGT Eddie Jeffers, had been killed in Iraq. Two hours later, a military sedan with two soldiers from the casualty assistance office, pulled up in my driveway.

At one point, the chaplain marveled “at how well” I was taking the news. I cannot tell you how many times over the next ten years I heard that. I am thankful for each one of them because it has allowed me, my wife Karen, and my two daughters Becky and Tiffany to share the hope that is within us.


SGT Eddie Jeffers is famous for writing an article titled, “Hope Rides Alone,” published on the New Media Journal (NMJ) by my good friend Frank Salvato. The article went viral on the internet, was mentioned on FOXNews and read numerous times on the radio by Mark Levin. After Eddie’s death, Mark and I became close friends.

After Eddie’s death, I wrote an article for NMJ titled, “Hope Rides Eternal.” In the article I wrote, “Since Eddie’s death on Wednesday our family has been lavished in amazing grace and love and we are literally being sustained by it.”

That holds truer today than when I wrote it. What was a family tragedy could have been tragic for my family. My girls could have been destroyed by losing their only brother, and instead their lives have been blessed by the grace of God. Whenever they felt sadness, they relied upon the blessed hope in the knowledge that because their brother and they have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ, they will one day be reunited in heaven.

My wife Karen and I have grown closer in our relationship because of our love for Christ and each other, helping one another whenever the grief and sadness seemed too great to bear.

Eddie’s life and death have impacted countless people over the years. So many of you have reached out to my family in the last ten years. We are grateful and blessed by your kind and caring words.

No greater honor could be bestowed on Eddie’s life than for all who learn of his life seek and find a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.

Doing so won’t save you from facing a family tragedy, but it will help you through it and over time, the tragedy becomes less traumatic.

That is because no matter what you face in life, when you face it with the Lord Jesus Christ, hope is and always will be, eternal.

(Note from Dave: I've been carrying around these words in my head and heart for nearly a month. I finally wrote them down yesterday, which was the date Eddie was killed; September 19, 2007. It was on a Wednesday, the day, that he went to be with Jesus.)

Inaugural Daydreaming

I was reminiscing about a group of us Tea Party Patriots going to the Obama Inauguration and protesting his bogus election. We knew that we had to stop Obama from being inaugurated.

What was even better is the Koch Brothers not only bussed us in all across the country, but they also provided us a stipend for food. I think it was $25 or even $50. Not sure; it's been so long.

But then I remembered it couldn't have been Obama's first inauguration, because the Tea Party movement didn't start until 2010.

So I realized it must have been in January 2013 for Obama's second inauguration, but I knew that wasn't possible because I was at church that Sunday, and wouldn't have been in DC that next day.

I can't remember the actual details, because it never happened; none of it.

However, the Lunatic Fringe has become completely unhinged at the thoughts of a Donald Trump inauguration. I admit that I marvel that our nation has actually elected a non-politician to the highest office.

However, the Left has dropped all pretense of civility. The darling of the Left, Rosie O'Donnell has even called for martial law to keep Trump from moving into the White House.

What a turn of events! It's the Left that always accuses conservatives of wanting to violate human rights and the will of the people. We are accused of implementing martial tactics, and now those accusers are openly advocating civil unrest.

It is amazing how the tolerant ones are so intolerant of the rejection of their ideology.

Dear Patriots, we must cover our nation in prayers for peace this week and the coming months.

I fear it may be a rough ride.

Cease and Desist

Like a rejected boyfriend who won’t leave your daughter alone, the Democrat Party and mainstream media refuse to accept their rejection by the American electorate. Unwilling to accept the results they demanded of Donald Trump before they lost, the Left is now stalking in general our Constitution and specifically, Republican electors.

Therefore, on behalf of the US Constitution and the American public, I hereby file the following restraining order against the Democrat Party, its members, and duplicitous mainstream media:

  1. Cease and desist perpetrating the false flag of Russian hacking of the 2016 US presidential election.
  1. Cease and desist reporting that Russians supplied Wikileaks with hacked Democrat National Committee emails. This has already been contradicted by Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and its operative Craig Murray.
  1. Cease and desist harassing and threatening presidential electors of the Electoral College.

If a restraining order is not enough to convince disgruntled Democrats to accept America’s rejection of them, then perhaps you can understand that we’re just not that into you.

Either way, Monday, December 19, 2016, the Electoral College will elect Donald J. Trump as the United States 45th President, Congress will count and certify the results on January 6, 2017, and on January 20, 2017, Trump will be inaugurated.

Those are the cold hard facts about the election. You can reject this, but as John Adams once said, “Facts are stubborn things.”

Florida General Election

Here is how I will be voting on November 8th:


Donald Trump (If you're wondering why I would vote for Trump, read here)

US Senate

Marco Rubio

US Representative

Matt Gaetz


State Senator District 1

Mike Hill (Write-In)

Board of County Commissioners District 3

Aubrey Penton


I'm voting yes to retain all judges on the ballot except Jorge Labarga of Florida Supreme Court. Vote "No" on Labarga.

Constitutional Amendments

I'm voting "No" on all amendments. Too much of that going on. Soon our constitution will be a mess like California's.


My Political Opus

The Donald or Hillary

The Donald or Hillary

I have been involved in politics for 40 years, some of those years less than others. I have been intimately involved in the last four election cycles, including our current one. The more I get involved, the more I feel the need for spiritual cleansing and healing.

Ronald Reagan’s whimsical quote about politics never seemed truer than today:

It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.”

As my pastor says, “We are living in spiritual Babylon.” The binary reality before us is Hillary Clinton or one of her supporters, Donald J. Trump. Of course we have other choices, third party or write-in, but the reality is either Clinton or Trump will be our next president.

Voting Your Conscience

Allow me to take a side note for a moment: for those of you who maddeningly and insultingly say not voting for Trump is the same as voting for Hillary, I say: GROW UP! The same pretzel logic could say, not voting for Hillary is the same as voting for Trump.

The right to vote is the most sacred thing we do as American citizens. I will never attack or impugn a citizen for making a choice of conscience, particularly one based on biblical principles.

If you are wont to attack such people, then take leave of me now.

I will not suffer your type any longer.

Rule of Law

The watershed moment for me in this election cycle came on July 5th, one day after America celebrated its 240th birthday. FBI Director James Comey told Congress, and as an extension, America, that Hillary Clinton is above the law. Director Comey told America that law and order, the foundation of a constitutional republic, no longer matters.

And the Democrat Party wholeheartedly agreed.

The Democrat Party is the party of lawlessness and disorder. Understand well James Madison’s words about the purpose of government:

If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.”

Clearly men are not angels. Law and order must be kept if our nation is to survive. Rampant illegal immigration, race-baiting profiteering, and assassination of our police officers are the latest examples of the lawlessness spreading across America.

Religious Liberty

Additionally, religious liberty is openly attacked. The Democrat Party, led by Hillary Clinton’s open hatred of evangelical Christians, have painted a bullseye on the First Amendment.

This past May, Congressmen Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass) and Bobby Scott (D-Va) introduced the “Do No Harm Act,” which would amend the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) that protects religious liberty. Democrats have in their crosshairs Christian businesses that refuse to provide services that are contrary to their biblical beliefs.

Democrats were furious with the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor who refused to provide birth control and abortions under ObamaCare.

During their 2012 national convention, the Democrat Party tried to remove God from their party platform. Its corporate godlessness and lack of patriotism was on full display at this year’s convention.

Know this, if you do not clearly see that the Democrat Party is officially opposed to the open and free exercise of the Christian faith, then friend you need the scales removed from your eyes.

Protecting Life

Democrats approve of and finance (sadly with the aid of Congressional Republicans) the indiscriminate murder of unborn children. They even approve of the barbaric act of partial-birth abortion. Any candidate or political party that denies the unalienable right to life of unborn Americans is not only unworthy of our vote, but also is unfit to serve in any capacity.

Abortion for any reason, including rape, incest, and the supposed life of the mother, is still murder. Humans do not get to choose who lives or dies. God is the giver and taker of life, and He alone chooses who lives or dies.

The Democrat Party officially opposes this biblical truth. On May 19, 2016 at the Women Deliver 2016 conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, Mrs. Clinton pushed “for Unlimited Abortions Up to Birth on a Global Scale.”

The Republican Party officially supports life; however, at times they do not govern as such. Nevertheless, the GOP at least has a platform to which Christians can hold Republicans accountable. The Democrats have no such accountability.

Revival before Reversal

I have been accused of being a purist, as though we are not to endeavor to seek Christ’s purity. Notwithstanding, I have tried to bring a reversal of America’s woes before revival has occurred.

The reason America is in its current state is because the church has allowed it, particularly pastors. Heed well the words of the Reverend Charles G. Finney from The Decay of Conscience, written over 140 years ago:

“Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits. If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree. If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”

Our churches have zero effect on American society. Other than Franklin Graham and Dr. James Dobson, name one Christian leader called on to comment on cultural issues. Many pastors hide under their pulpits out of fear of losing their idolatrous tax-exempt status. If the church were truly concerned about being the salt and light Jesus commands us to be, we would reject the Internal Revenue Service’s unconstitutional threat.

One thing Mr. Trump said on the campaign trail and in his acceptance speech, is that he is going to take away the threat of the Johnson Amendment of 1954. In fact, Mr. Trump has commissioned former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to draft legislation for the repeal of this unconstitutional legislation. This particularly got my attention because it will also take away the convenient excuse of the cowardly clergy who refuse to fulfill their biblical calling as pastor.

Revival will come to America when the church is revived. This will only come when the pulpits across the country stop fulfilling the Apostle Paul’s prophecy:

 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

Buying Time

I do not know how much time we have left before Christ returns or America is lost, I only know that I am to be about the business of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. I pray for a revival such as the depraved city of Nineveh experienced after a reluctant Jonah preached to them.

Would to God America would experience a 20-year revival like Nineveh!

Nevertheless, I must be about my Father’s work. There are other candidates that are far better than the binary choices of the Republican and Democrat nominees. My dear brother-in-Christ Tom Hoefling is such a man. You can read all about him and his party here.

Brother Tom will be grieved by what I am writing; others will be too. I too am grieved by where I find myself. However, I see that our nation is not ready for a man such as Tom.

Revival must come before reversal. That being said, if you reject the binary choice, then I encourage you to support Tom.

However, the reality is either Hillary Clinton or Donald J. Trump is going to be president. Mrs. Clinton is the obvious choice for the Democrat Party. She fully represents its depraved state.

Mr. Trump is the Republican Party’s Frankenstein. I’m not saying Mr. Trump is a monster; I am saying the GOP’s purposeful maneuverings to defeat any constitutional, Christian conservative has in the past nominated Mitt McDole and now Donald Trump.

The choices before us are harsh. Vote our conscience and most likely watch Hillary Clinton become the 45th president whose goal is to destroy the last vestiges of American traditionalism. If you’ve not yet seen Dinesh D’Souza’s latest masterpiece, “Hillary’s America,” I exhort you to do so immediately. It will shake you to your core.

Or we can hold our noise and vote for clearly the most immoral person the Republican Party has ever nominated. Mr. Trump has spoken in many ways and said many things we want to hear and hope to see come to fruition. We have no guarantee that he will fulfill his promises.

We do have the guarantee that Hillary Clinton will be a third Obama term. Some say that is okay because if Republicans can keep control of both houses of Congress, then we can stop her.

How did that work out with Barack Obama? My good friend Mark Levin has rightly described Congress as the Bank of Obama.

This is why voting in this election, up and down the ballot is vital. If your incumbent US Representative and/or Senator voted to support Barack Obama’s destructive agenda, then he or she needs to be fired.

If you do not want to see Hillary Clinton as our next president, the only real choice before us is to vote for Donald J. Trump. Conservative icon Richard Viguerie put it best in one of his articles at ConservativeHQ.com:

Friends, this is now a binary choice: Trump and Pence vs. Hillary Clinton.  In this battle there is only the victory or defeat of constitutional liberty and the rule of law. In this battle there is no third option, there is no compromise, there is no sitting out the election. I’m all in for Trump and Pence and I urge you to join me and them in making America great again.”

I’m not as interested in making America great again as I am making it as holy as possible and revering God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

With Hillary Clinton that goal will be at best an uphill battle if not a guarantee for failure.

With Donald Trump, we have a glimmer of hope.

Which is why I am reluctantly and sadly will cast my vote for Mr. Trump in November.

Overcome your temptation to judge me.

The Lord Jesus Christ is my judge and I will face Him one day for all my words and actions.

So no matter your thoughts, they will have no bearing on my decision.

You have already been consulted if I sought your counsel.

Finally, let us step away from the vicious and vitriolic attacks we’ve seen this election cycle and allow each of us to cast our ballots as our consciences allow us.
