It's Not Kool Aid This Time

One of the most infamous cult leaders was Jim Jones. The faithful loyal followers of his cult would do anything he said. They were so loyal that he could shoot an individual on a widely trafficked New York City street and not "lose one follower". Such is the nature of a cult.

 

However, this time Trump did not order his Republican cult members to swallow Kool Aid. Instead, he incited them to attack the US Capitol. They obediently did, but many now face arrest for this seditious act. So far, the fa

Senator Akpabio and NDDC Scavengers

 

 

Written By Obiaruko Christie Ndukwe

One of the groups, Uhrobo Youth Leaders Council (UYLC) was said to have dragged the Honourable Minister for Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio before a Federal High Court

The Manhood Line: The Gold Files By Mike Ramey

A man must make the effort to prepare himself; INVEST the time, talent and sweat needed to build yourself that career or relationship you are seeking and to build yourself to face the time in history which you are challenging.  An unprepared man is sure to become a casualty in the arena of life.  God favors the man who not only walks with Him but takes the time to grow under the training of the men whom He has sent their way.

As my first blog post of 2021, or as I refer to it as 2020, the Sequel, I chose to borrow words that will spark change. The Faux Coup attempt by the Orange Megalomaniac, carried out by "Vanilla Isis & Y’All Qaeda" was ABSOLUTELY foreseeable. Not only was it predictable it was ALLOWED. We witnessed police and politicians actively participating in the invasion of The Capitol.

We've seen what they are going to do. More attempts to bring down Olympus are sure to follow. There is no sigh of relief t

“Space does not permit the citing of all the many examples of the utter hypocrisy of the white Communists which show the vast gulf between what they say and what they do.”--Manning Johnson, Author“Color, Communism & Common Sense” It has been said that to understand today, one must be a student of the history of yesterday. History does have a habit of repeating itself. It has also spawned a saying, which is best summarized in the following manner: “Those who do not learn from history are doo

The Manhood Line: The Gold Files By Mike Ramey

 

     First, let me thank the publications, publishers, editors and—most importantly—the readers of “The Manhood Line” over these many years.  It has been a joy to put this column out (the flagship column for Barnstorm Communications International, by the way).  God has blessed this column to go from my home city of Indianapolis, Indiana around the world and back.  It has visited a variety of HBCUs and other college campuses. It has hit Tokyo, Japan.  It sipped tea in Rome, Italy.  It made its s

Racism Exploits White Racists Too

I know white racists hate blacks. They hate me because I am black. But, I don’t hate them. To do that would spread hate and I sure would not want to do that. Such a response to hate with hate would be retaliation and I do not believe in retaliation. Retaliation is one of the curses of our present culture of which I write in three of  my books, “Boycott Money And Save Your Soul – Launching the Goodwill Revolution”, “Leave The Rat Race To The Rats” and “A Jamaica Poor No More”.  In the Goodwill Re

Niger Delta people will, for a long time, remain wholeheartedly grateful to President Muhammadu Buhari, for the immense goodwill he has shown to the good people of the Oil rich but beleaguered region, through the various projects and programmes aimed at the total development and emancipation of the Niger Delta region. We must acknowledge the concerted effort towards the completion of the East-West highway, the reintroduction of the Petroleum industry Bill (P.I.B) to the National Assembly, the co

The Ramey Commentaries (TM) By Mike Ramey

     One of my favorite illustrations of the divorce issue rests in the plight of an elected official years ago.  This lawmaker was a ‘tough guy’ on the issue of child support.  He bucked and stomped in our Indiana Statehouse, calling for toughened penalties against those men and women who were involved with the system.  When non-custodial parents would come to the statehouse to express their views on the unfairness of the laws that lawmakers created, he objected the loudest.

The Bible Economics Line by Mike Ramey

“God’s children run home when the storm comes on.”

--Charles Haddon Spurgeon

 

     Here is an absolute of life:  God allows rain to fall on the just and the unjust (Matthew 5:45 KJV).  To be a card-carrying member of the human race means that bad times and bad things are going to happen to each of us, simply because of the fallen condition of man.  The difference between the Christian and the unbeliever?  The Christian has God to lean upon.  The unbeliever—no matter how talented or resourceful--do

Barbados PM Mea Mottley is the best

 

To quote from my recent book, A Jamaica Poor No More:

“We have been conditioned to look upon the rich powerful countries as models. Why should these rich powerful countries be the model for the world with their history of slavery, colonialism, imperialism, hundreds of thousands of innocent people killed by their wars, their slaughter and dispossession of  indigenous people all over the world. In God’s name, why?

Forget them. Let us be different. In the words of Afro-American author Alice Walker,

     Before we get into the last part of this series, I wanted to inject a few things which surfaced before I made the decision of putting this column to bed and shipping it out.

     I happened to have a conversation with a veteran Minister whom I have a lot of respect.  His attitude towards Ministers and regular Christians being involved in politics?  Not very supportive.  He believes that Christians in general, and Ministers (Pastors included) should stay out of the political arena.  Yes, we s
