With 2019 unfolding, we leave the roller coaster year of 2018 behind us. Now moving into 2019, we can expect more fireworks which will be accelerated in the Spirit.

We now have a new majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. Already we are seeing a very distinct direction in which this majority will legislate. A fair question that should be posed, and assessed, is what the future of liberty in America is … if we are indeed trending towards progressive socialism. Back in February 2009, the cover of Newsweek magazine touted, “We Are All Socialists Now.” I would beg to differ, but we should consider: how is it that an ideology that is completely antithetical to everything America represents can find a home on these shores?

On December 28, an editorial in The New York Times broached an eight-part series on abortion rights that is positively astonishing. It is clearly the most rabid defense of abortion ever published by the mainstream media. The first installment was published on December 30; it will end on January 20.
