Utah Senate Race of 2022

Utah is having a Senate election in 2022. Mike Lee, one of the few semi - decent members of the Senate, is running for re-election. He has not been endorsed by Romney - surprise, surprise.

It is certainly possible that the Lord could choo...

I also agree with the commenter who listed "None Dare Call It Conspiracy". Ezra Taft Benson had many good lectures / sermons.

They have had multiple coups against oppositon leaders, and amongst the most corrupt governments in Europe, after Russia and Belarus. They have jailed ...

Re: What is your opinion about the war in Ukraine?

For information on foreign affairs, I sometimes find Chronicles Magazine to have good insights. The chief writer on these questions is Srdja Trifkovic, who was once a Serbian Ambassador, and is now an American citizen. He has some good insights on the Russia - Ukraine war. https://chroniclesmagazine...
