God’s Little Smuggler


“Brother Andrew” is the pseudonym of Andrew van der Bijl, a Christian missionary who smuggled Bibles into communist countries during the height of the Cold War. His story was well known in Evangelical circles; they even made a comic book about him. He told of crossing through border checkpoints, his ancient Volkswagen stuffed with Bibles. It was like a spy thriller. He was never caught. The blindness of the crossing guards seemed miraculous.

Brother Andrew was the perfect hero for a young, deeply conservative, deeply religious boy — which is to say, my 13-year-old self. I longed to be like him. To face danger, to engage in intrigue, to take the battle to an implacable, prodigious foe — that would be glory.

Out of the blue, my shot at glory appeared.

Please Tell Me How This Is Not Treason


Former Secretary of State John Kerry meets with Iranian Foreign Minister, using “shadow diplomacy” to prevent the failure of the “Iran Nuclear Deal”

Now, at last count, Iran was America’s sworn enemy. Its people regularly took to the streets to shout “Death to America!” This looks like providing aid and comfort to the enemy, which I believe is the definition of treason.

Oh, yes, and Mr. Kerry has also been found to be “coaching the Palestinians not to yield to Trump in peace talks.”  That may not be treason against the US, but it could be seen to be acting against our greatest ally in the Middle East, the State of Israel. Like the Clintons and the Lois Lerners in recent history in the US, Kerry will probably not suffer any consequences for this at the least subversive, and at the worst treasonable, behavior.
