The Quick Scan by Mike Ramey




     I’m going to warn you up front—this is going to be a HOT column!

      Those who are quite proud of their sexual branding—those who actively practice and identify as sodomites (gay), Trans (Transvestites), Bi (Bisexuals) and other letters of the ‘alphabet mafia’ have seemed to forget two crucial things: The first thing: God.  The second thing: Competence.  It is one thing to ‘cling’ to pride in your ‘alphabet’.  It is quite another to be competent at what you do outside

The Ramey Commentaries (TM) By Mike Ramey



     A few years back during my broadcast reporting days, I covered a fire involving a local church.  The church had been in this one particular neighborhood for years.  It was sad to not only witness the church being burned to the ground but having to inform the public of such a tragedy.


     Of course, there were a wide variety of people ‘at the scene’ of the fire.  Among them were members of that church.  The firefighters did what they could, but a

The Ramey Commentaries (TM) By Mike Ramey


     If you know your KJV Bible, you have a firm grip on what has been happening in America over the last several decades.  We—as a nation—have been and continue to be on a downward slide spiritually and it continues to manifest in tangible ways across every imaginable institution.

      Politics is no exception.  It has become only the latest, tangible example of corruption.

      From a prophetic point of view, Jesus Christ IS soon going to rapture His church home. This comes from several place

     Now, let’s be honest.  Many of today’s parents don’t value an education the way many of us ‘P-Schoolers’ do.  Some of the stuff I read about in the local papers or see on the local news would NOT play out when I was a mere tyke.  My mother, who WAS a teacher, would have--simply--dug my grave, and my father would have tossed me in, and put the dirt on top of me, if I DARED to cut-up in school.

     I went to school, graduated, and went to college, and graduated

     Those who gripe about politics don’t necessarily want to see problems solved.

     They just want to talk about the problems and hope the problems will resolve themselves, with the least amount of damage to themselves and their families.

     Those of us who are Men of color have just as much right as to run for elective office as the next person. The problem is that there are few in the way of resources available to encourage men TO get involved in politics; to build and coach men in the way

Before I start this rant, I want to pay a special thanks to my guardian spirit for opening my eyes to the knowledge and wisdom that I am about to share with everyone here. What was revealed to me is not a vision or a revelation, but just the way to see things from a different prospective. All the information was already here and avai

The Hidden Hand Behind Mega Churches


The title of this video/blog is "The Hidden Hand Behind Mega Churches."
Mega churches for the most part are a huge money enterprise/ business.  Founder of Scientology L. Ron Hubbard said in 1948 that “You don’t get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, start a religion.”
It certainly is a phenomenon and much more common today than in the past. Up until now, the Catholic Church with its many diocese and archdiocese around the globe seem

NB Commentary: Okay Folks, this is one topic I really hesitated to weigh in on. But as usual, I get signs from the Universe as to what should be the next topic of my YouTube videos. It's quite magical how it works and I simply go with the flow.
I am not sure how long this video will end up being. I would like to say that this will be a short video, but I doubt that I can keep to that promise. I hope that you all will stay with me and follow my train of thought all the way to the conclusion.

NB Commentary on this video:


Interesting twist on this rumor of Michelle being born a man. Blurring of gender lines is an interesting topic that I want to tackle in my own video. But suffice it to say, there is still a level of naiveté' on your part as it relates to body types, and what's feminine and what's masculine. I can see your point about branding, but, I am not too sure if I agree with it to the extent that you are portraying in this video.

There's a much deeper issue going on when it come

According to a 2012 Gallup International survey about religiosity and atheism, Ghana is one of the most religious countries in the world. At first glance, there is some evidence for this: when you land in Accra, you’ll notice churches everywhere you go. If you look even closer, you’ll see Mormon missionaries on their bikes throughout the country.

But are Ghanaians very relig

Rape: A Teachable Moment for all of US

To all men: It is a teachable moment for you and for you to teach your sons and their sons. Steubenville. Todd Akin. Unspoken GOP ideology on rape -- aka "legitimate rape."

The Man in the Mirror

June 16, 2011


Raynard Jackson


The church used to be the mirror that society looked into to see its reflection.  But, now the church has become the reflection that mirrors society.


Unfortunately, the church seems to have lost its way and can no longer be counted on to provide light in a dark world. 


Last month, embattled preacher Eddie Long made an out of court settlement of the sexual charges made against him by 4 teenage parishioners.  The settlement is reported to have been for $ 15 million (t

For those of you who know me, you know that I have been an avid supporter of affordable housing for quite some time -- this stems from both personal challenges of obtaining an affordable home of my own, coupled with the fact that it is ludicrous and inhumane, and downright insipid to claim to be the leader of the free world, and one of the richest nations in the world, and not make it possible for those who made that wealth a possibility to have decent place to live.
