Conservative Baptist Network: Reflections

Another new Baptist network has formed, purporting to represent the grassroots majority of Baptists who have been disenfranchised somehow (since all our meetings allow open voting) that is going to lead us away from a drift into “woke” theology and liberalism. The networks have formed – some made a big splash and others barely a ripple – and generally faded away. What will happen to the “Conservative Baptist Network” announced today is yet to be seen. The network is a little nebulous at this poi...

Ratfu–ery in NH: Trump Camp Hoped Secret Service Lockdown Would Screw Dems

Oops, they said the quiet part loud again. President Donald Trump’s campaign advisers are saying openly that his rally in New Hampshire Monday night wasn’t just counterprogramming to the Democratic primary in the key swing state.

Six senior UK politicians wrote a letter on Saturday criticising the UK's decision to allow Huawei to build part of its 5G network. In a BBC interview on Sunday China's ambassador to the UK said the politicians were pursuing a "witch hunt" against Huawei because it is a Chinese company. The UK's decision to include Huawei in its 5G network was in defiance of the US, which has been lobbying allies to exclude Huawei's 5G equipment on the grounds it acts as a conduit for Chinese government spying...

Weekend reading: Remembering bear markets

What caught my eye this week. E very year the global bull market in equities and bonds continues, it gets harder to convince people that investing isn’t always so breezy. Sure we had that setback towards the end of 2018. If you squint a bit, it could even be described as a crash. But the whole thing was over in a couple of months! I read comments in the aftermath of that wobble from younger investors who were pleased they hadn’t sold out in a panic. Good for them, genuinely. But as trials go, ...
