Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem The Shared Meal 
 (New Testament) Mark 8 Jesus Feeds the Four Thousand 8 During those days another large crowd gathered. Since they had nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples to him and said, 2 “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. 3 If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, because some of them have come a long distance.” 4 His disciples answered, “But where in this remote place can anyone get enough bread to feed them?” 5 “How many...

Washington Post ^
Since May, the Saudi government has arrested at least a dozen womens rights advocates, accusing them of nefarious contacts with foreign parties and branding them traitors in the press. The crackdown has been seen by some as a warning from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to other activists: Reforms are a gift from the leadership to Saudi citizens, not rights that can be won. The activists did not limit themselves to the driving campaign.They fought for survivors of domestic violence, women shackled by restrictive guardianship laws and political prisoners. They represented different generations of Saudi women, trying over decades to...

The Red Hen, a farm-to-table restaurant in the Shenandoah Valley, has been flooded with mostly one- and five-star Yelp reviews after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted that the owner had asked her to leave Friday night because she works for President Donald Trump... "Despicable and outlandish behavior. The only thing served here if they agree to serve you ... is a heaping plate of arrogance and hypocrisy," Yelper Russell H of McKinney, Texas, wrote on Saturday morning in a one-star review.

The figures come after three priests were murdered in the space of a yearAlmost 200 priests in the Philippines have filed for permits to carry firearms in response to four attacks on clergy in the past year.

New York Observer ^ | 6/22/218 | Rex Reed
Most sequels, prequels and remakes have some vague reason for justifying their existence. Not the Jurassic Park-Jurassic World franchise. They just keep on coming for no other purpose than to cash in on a proven formula marketed for undemanding audiences who just cant get enough of T-Rexes and flying pterodactyls, and are always willing to plunk down more hard-earned money to scream their way through another excess of what theyve already seen before. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the latest installment, has more dinosaurs, more screams, and more general chaos, but doesnt make a single move to explore a fresh idea...

Glenn Beck website ^ | June 22, 2018 | Glenn Beck
The next time asteroids menace the earth, we'll be ready. Because NASA has created a plan. But before you get too excited, unfortunately, NASA's just-released plan does not include a Bruce Willis-led crew of roughnecks landing on an asteroid and blowing it to smithereens with a nuke. Which begs the question, if that's not part of the plan, what's a potential "Space Force" actually for? Yesterday, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy released a report titled, the "National Near-Earth Object Preparedness Strategy and Action Plan." Okay, see, this is the problem with government bloat. That title is...

Former Obama CIA Director John Brennan responded to a tweet by President Donald Trump on Saturday decrying the Russia withc hunt investigation with an ominous tweet calling for Trumps cabinet and inner circle to turn on him. While Brennan stopped short of explicitly calling for the invocation of the 25th Amendment, impeachment or an outright coup to remove Trump from office, his language strongly implies such actions. Trump tweeted Saturday at 7:33 A.M. EDT, .@FoxNews Poll numbers plummet on the Democrat inspired and paid for Russian Witch Hunt. With all of the bias, lying and hate by the investigators, people...

A 13-year-old hauled into the principal's office for not serving his detention may end up with the biggest detention of all: a felony conviction. That's because the kid recorded the conversation on his phone. The incident took place last February at Manteno Middle School, which is about an hour outside of Chicago. Young Paul Boron was arguing with Principal David Conrad and Assistant Principal Nathan Short. About ten minutes into the meeting, which was held with the door open, Boron told the men he was recording it. At that point, the principal told Boron he was committing a felony and...
