The National Enquirer is responsible for pursuing the John Edwards story and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.

Barry Levine, the Enquirer’s executive editor said, “The heavy lifting that we did on the John Edwards story was more than anything the Times did on Spitzer. and they won the prize.

In the back of my mind, it’s clear to me that if this reporting had been done by the New York Times, or the Washington Post or a big paper like the LA Times, it’s almost certain they would have won the prize.

Prize or no prize, we’re going to continue to be out there, we’re going to continue to break big political scandals,” he said.

Oh, is it ‘Gal. 6;10.’? I’m bad a memorizing numbers. Thank you for the subtle correction. But I mess up so much I hardly care anymore. [Grin.]

Gibson is riding on the edge with a Scottish temper that pre-dates their Christian conversion. I am concerned. If he ever gets straightened out, he could do good works under the radar. Public image rehab is out. That girlfriend got even with him big-time. His wife was a treasure and loyal. All in ruin, but the memories are ashes for new seeds.

There are two kinds of people — hot and cold. Hot people care and get things done. But their tempers and judgments get them in trouble. Cold people take a free ride, but they say the right things and make the right moves. That’s one reason why the free market is superier to communal alternatives.

FRegards ....

The L.A. Times has been repeatedly nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, plus won. I don’t consider them, or most of the MSM, to be credible sources.

As much as that pack of wolves hate Christ, along with those claiming to be Christians, don’t you think the stories of Mel’s alleged numerous affairs would be woven throughout his long first marriage, complete screaming front page headlines everyday, all day. Kinda like now.

The devil and the liberal media absolutely HATE what Mel Gibson did with the Passion of the Christ.

God only knows how many thousands (perhaps millions) of people accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior as a result of watching that movie. Mel Gibson might very well be the most successful evangelist (in terms of bringing numbers people to Christ) of all time.

After the “Passion” I remember Mel talked about wanting to direct other Biblical movies - I would really like to see him do this. I’ve always thought that he alone could make a movie about abortion that would make it so real and personal it could literally help to overturn Roe v. Wade in this country.

From the time the “Passion” was released, Satan and the liberals have recognized what a threat Mel is to the kingdom of darkness and have tried to take him out in any way possible.

Mel Gibson needs our prayers right now and not our criticism. He has been used mightily by God - and I believe can be restored, with a great testimony of God’s grace, and continue to do what the Lord has gifted him to do.

Please pray for him.

“Dear Hitch;
For real, full-on, unadulterated violence and hatred, you might do better looking at pagan National Socialism and atheistic International Communism ...

But that might be too close to home. “

Good One!

I laugh when a non-leftie has a scandal and the left say that this proves the entire belief/Org/Party is over.

Funny this never happens when the embarrassing event happens to:

Sean Penn
B. Frank
(fingers getting tired now)
