Biblical Worldview News: Capitalism Benefits the Poor; Media Effects on Children; Trail Life USA succeeds

Biblical Worldview News:

Capitalism Benefits the Poor; Media Effects on Children; Trail Life USA succeeds

March 2019 – According to Star Parker (photo above), founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, President Donald Trump is using capitalism quite effectively to help America’s poorest citizens. Parker believes Trump’s policies are helping low-income Americans who have not previously been participating in the nation’s economic prosperity.

With unemployment at historic lows, Parker is excited over Trump’s executive order to establish the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council to implement Opportunity Zones previously created in the 2017 tax bill.

Opportunity Zones are designated areas within all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories where poverty often stands at twice the national average. Private investors in these zones will receive preferred tax treatment, thereby encouraging economic growth.

During remarks at the White House signing ceremony for this executive order, billionaire BET network founder Bob Johnson said the president’s new tax programs “will cause people to invest money where before they saw risk, now they will see opportunity. And that combination of putting money into communities will allow for those communities to become vibrant, to become safe, to create ownership, and, most important, to contribute to the well-being of this country.”

Study examines  media effects on children

March 2019 –By the time a child is 17 years old, he or she will have been exposed to an average of 60,000 hours of media. In December 2018, the National Institutes of Health began a study to examine the impact of screen time using smartphones, tablets, and video games on 11,000 children ages 9 and 10. The study will follow them for 10 years to determine the long-term effect of media exposure.

The first round of MRIs conducted on subjects in this study found significant changes in the brains of kids who had more than seven hours of screen time daily. For example, researchers found a premature thinning of the outer cortex of the brain in these children, which may indicate earlier brain maturation. This early in the study, the impact of such changes is uncertain.

Scouts stumbling, Trail Life thriving

March 2019 – Boy Scouts of America is facing bankruptcy. BSA embarked on a downward spiral with its 2013 decision to welcome homosexual boys to its troops. Soon thereafter, it opened the door to homosexual leaders, and then quickly added girls to the mix.

In December 2018, BSA announced it would remove the word boy from its name and become Scouts BSA in February 2019.

Ironically, Girl Scouts of America has sued BSA for changing its name.

“Families have voted with their feet,” said Rob Swarzwalder, senior VP at Family Research Council. He said BSA membership dropped by almost one-third from 2014 to 2018.

In contrast, Trail Life USA (traillifeusa.com), a Christian scouting group for boys founded in 2013, is growing steadily, offering many of the same outdoor adventures and character development components once taught by BSA.

Trail Life CEO Mark Hancock ob-
served, “As organizations that help boys, we’re either going to bring clarity to that or we’re going to contribute to the moral confusion boys are experiencing.”

He attributes Trail Life’s 35% membership jump in 2018 to the group’s unapologetic Christ-centered mission.

AFR helps disciple kids, save unborn lives

March 2019 – Last fall, American Family Radio partnered with Samaritan’s Purse to urge listeners to send more than 6,200 Christmas Shoeboxes to needy children.

Furthermore, AFR listeners pledged funds to provide more than 11,000 copies of The Greatest Journey Bible and discipleship studies for children.

“Please pray that the children who participate in TGJ really will find Christ and begin their greatest journey,” said AFR general manager Jim Stanley.

Featuring Pre-Born Ministry, in mid-January, AFR listeners pledged to provide 2,949 ultrasounds for pro-life pregnancy resource centers. Pre-Born reports that 80% of the abortion-minded women decide to give their baby life after experiencing an ultrasound.

In Trump Kim Summit Trump shows Kim Freedom, Capitalism Benefits in Peaceful Denuclearization of North Korea

This video shows the great potential of a free people, the American way of life. Don’t miss it!  Freedom is America’s greatest export. ~C.D.

 

 

The historic summit has taken place with North Korea and they have agreed to denuclearization. Something past presidents have secured. But is this time different? President Trump hopes so, playing a video for Kim showing him what the future of North Korea could look like.

According to Town Hall:

As part of his effort to get dictator Kim Jong Un to agree to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump showed him a video that presented all the possibilities for North Korea’s future if sanctions come off.

In addition to the benefits economic development and innovative technologies would bring to the Hermit Kingdom, Trump also emphasized what developing the country’s beaches could do for the nation.

“They have great beaches! You see that whenever they’re exploding the cannons into the ocean, right?” Trump said after playing the four-minute video for the press.

“So I said, ‘Boy, look at that beach. Wouldn’t that make a great condo behind’ – and I explained it,” the real estate mogul said.

This is still a very tense situation with a lot of unknowns. Only time will tell. But from everything we have learned, it is moving in the right direction.

The Trump Economy: Story of the Decade

Rush Limbaugh

In any other climate, in any other atmosphere, this would be leading every cable newscast, and everybody would be happy about it, because this is restoring America’s wealth. Exactly one of the many things Trump said that he was gonna do. Make America rich again, “Make America Great Again.” You know the refrain. He talked endlessly of restoring America’s wealth, and here it is happening. This is the story of the decade.

“It just isn’t done!”

That seems to be a never-ending refrain for everybody in the Washington establishment talking about Trump: “It just isn’t done! We just don’t do it this way.” So that’s all they’ve got is to suggest here that Trump has broken the law or has violated a sacrosanct convention. But no matter how hard they try, they cannot drown out or obliterate the news. The United States added 223,000 jobs in May, beating expectations. The so-called experts were forecasting in the high 180,000s. Jobs were added all across the employment sector.

Manufacturing added 18,000 jobs.

They’re coming back, and they are roaring back. You know what else? Retail jobs: 31,000 new retail jobs. Everybody’s out there talking about how retail is dying because of the internet. Well, 31,000 retail jobs. Construction grew by 25,000 new jobs. The mining sector — which both Obama and Hillary promised to put out of business.

There are 6,000 new jobs in the mining sector. The service sector of our economy, service providers: 171,000 new jobs in May. Unemployment, 3.8%. That’s the lowest since George W. Bush was in… Actually, it’s early 2000. Bush assumed office in early 2001, and he had– in the early days of his administration — a low unemployment rate. Then 9/11 happened, and bottom fell out. But that’s how far you have to go back. You have to go back 18, 19 years to find unemployment this low, 3.8%. I have to tell you, this is considered statistically full employment.

And what that means is that when you get 3.8% of the people unemployed, those are the people that maybe don’t want to work or unemployable because it’s not logical to think that everybody in America could have a job. Unless, of course, you work for Bernie Sanders, who wants to have the federal government hire everybody.

Ben Garrison

Oh! And speaking of that. Donald Trump has cut the federal payroll by 24,000 jobs. That is another branch of draining the swamp that he is succeeding at.

But the point is we’re seeing a lot of excitement for historic improvements in minority unemployment numbers. The unemployment rate for men over 16 is 3.9%! Guess what it is for women, another group Republicans supposedly hate. It’s 3.6%.

I haven’t seen conservative men complaining about that, either. I haven’t seen any conservatives complaining about any of the good news on jobs for African-Americans, minorities, and women! Yet we’re sexist bigots, right?

Barack Obama… The date of this is June 1st, 2016.

RUSH: Okay. Listen to this. Obama, Indiana, June 1st, PBS special, questions for Obama. “What about the jobs we’ve lost? Are they coming back, Mr. President?”

OBAMA: And so what we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are comin’ in now because some of those jobs of the past are just not gonna come back. And when somebody says — like the person you just mentioned who I’m not gonna advertise for — that he’s gonna bring all these jobs back? Well, how exactly are y’gonna do that? What’re you gonna do? There’s no answer to it. He just says, “I’m gonna negotiate a better deal.” (stammering) Well, how…? What…? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he duh’n’t have’n answer.

 

RUSH: Yes, he does: Capitalism and the American people — 18,000 manufacturing jobs back. He has an answer. He’s always had the answer. It’s called capitalism and faith in the American people!

 

“It’s just not done this way!”

 

RUSH: “You’re not supposed to pardon people until you’re about to leave office! This just isn’t done this way!” It could be one of the identifiers of the Trump administration: “It’s just not done this way!” You mean like reviving the economy, bringing back jobs, restoring America’s wealth and place in the world? Now, I have to tell you, there is nowhere you can go today anywhere in the Drive-By Media to get even 10% of what I just told you in the way I presented it.

They’re gonna ignore this.
