Focus on the good things

This is the time of year that invokes a lot of memories and nostalgia. There are times when we need to put aside the worries of the world, the hustle and bustle, and all the clutter to just take some time to remember. It’s so easy to just go along from day to day, week…

News media and the yoke of bondage

There has been an outcry from the news media about how President Trump has criticized the press. It all started, they say, with Trump’s tweet in 2017 that “The fake news media is not my enemy. It is the enemy of the American people.” The media is still sore about this quote and they bring it up every…

Who will stand against the evildoers?

After months of news reports, stacked hearings, controlling the impeachment narrative, suppressing contradictory testimony and doctoring transcripts of witnesses, the best the House Democratic coup-makers could come up with were two charges of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Smelling a rat

In my early days, I was an award-winning investigative journalist. The awards came after having to convince my editors that there was a story when they just couldn’t see it (or as I later learned about their leftist ideals, they didn’t want to see it). But my God-given instincts were far more often than not,…

In April, The Daily Jot wrote a series of articles about the devastating impact of human trafficking from the lens of our Ghana ministry in the rural areas where Islam practices its long-established trade of stealing land and people for profit.

The perils of socialism in American youth

There is a story out of Boca De Uchire, Venezuela about a priest leading prayers for college students in the university courtyard. Some 15 minutes into the ceremony, five of the students had fainted for lack of food and two of them had been taken away in ambulances. The socialist state of Venezuela is failing…
