    For computer users, a few mouse clicks could mean the difference between staying online and losing Internet connections this summer. Unknown to most of them, their problem began when international hackers ran an online advertising scam to take control of infected computers around the world. In a highly unusual response, the FBI set up a safety net months ago using government computers to prevent Internet disruptions for those infected users. But that system is to be shut down. The FBI is encouraging users to visit a website run by its security partner, http://www.dcwg.org, that will inform them whether they're infected...
  • Vanity: And Remember How The Left Bashed Romney For Only Getting 25% Of The Vote? Not Tonight!

    04/24/2012 7:07:05 PM PDT · by Reality_News · 37 replies
    Especially MSNBC and the liberal baffoons on FOX. How many times did we hear, But Romney can never take in more than 25% of the vote? What an assinine thing to boast on live TV! There were 8 or 9 of them running at one time, did anyone expect any candidate to get 50% from the start? We had about 5 or 6 great candidates from the start. But most of us had a gut feeling it was going to be Romney in the end. Now those clowns on MSNBC can be more identified with the 7 dwarfs.

    The Rest of the Story ^ | APRIL 20, 2012 | Dr. Michael Siegel
    The American Legacy Foundation released a policy statement on electronic cigarettes, in which it called for the removal of these products from the market. The statement was entitled "The FDA Should Take Electronic Cigarettes Off The Market Until It Is Satisfied That They Are Safe and Effective." According to the statement: "While we remain open to promising products that can help smokers quit smoking, a consideration of all of the available evidence combined with important unanswered questions strongly supports our call on the FDA to prohibit the marketing and sale of e-cigarettes unless and until the FDA is satisfied that...

  • Shocking Circumstances Surrounding the Death of Voice of the Martyrs Executive Director

    Shocking Circumstances Surrounding the Death of Voice of the Martyrs Executive Director by Steve Eastman, Faith Issues It’s always shocking when someone dies before their time, especially if there are no apparent health issues. But shocking has been taken to a whole new level in the death of 64 year-old Tom White. To its credit, The Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) is confirming much of what the media is reporting. You can find this statement on the ministry’s website: “Allegations were made to authorities this week that Tom had inappropriate contact with a young girl. Rather than face those allegations,...

    Senator Lousenburg (D. NJ) has filed the “Turn Tail and Run” (TTR) bill in the U.S. Senate which, if passed, would preempt ALL State “Stand Your Ground” (SYG) laws. The new bill would impose a national duty to retreat at all times when one encounters a criminal threat or is about to become a victim of violent crime.

    There's been lots of talk that we must come together and vote for Mitt Romney because of the Supreme Court. Standing on conservative principles, I hate the idea of being forced to vote for Mitt Romney simply because he is an alternative to Obama. Romney's record from abortion to gun control to green energy to healthcare looks like Obama's record. See why it's hard to come to terms. A lot of people know this, but they end their argument with the Supreme Court. I question why should we trust a liberal in Republican clothing to be conservative friendly when it...

    Social Security Won't Be There, So Why Not Be Rich?By Donald Pennington | Yahoo! Contributor Network – 8 hrs ago COMMENTARY | How many times has a politician used the fear of losing Social Security as a ploy to persuade voters? More times than I can count. The concept of a safety net for those who lack financial planning skills has been an effective vote-grabber since 1935. And while all wage-earning Americans are required to pay into the program, people my age and younger will likely never see a return. **SNIP** Participants in the recent Occupy Wall Street boondoggle complained...

    Brownsville Church Needs a Revival — a Financial One by Steve Eastman, Faith Issues You probably remember the excitement from the mid to late 90s. People drove all night and even several days to arrive at Brownsville Assembly of God at 7 AM and earlier, to wait in the hot Pensacola sun until the evening service. Although he was pastor, John Kilpatrick left most of the public ministry to evangelist Stephen Hill. Lindell Cooley, with his long flowing hair, led worship. Salvations, healings and other miracles continued way past the time ordinary church-goers went to bed. Kilpatrick, who resigned in...
  • Case against George Zimmerman man be doomed

    Last week, media outlets filed motions to unseal the records concerning the arrest of George Zimmerman in connection with the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Sooner than later, the public will see what evidence special prosecutor Angela Corey has that warranted the filing of second-degree murder charges. Absent something new in Corey's file, one of America's best-known lawyers feels the case against Zimmerman is doomed. Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz believes that the murder charges will be thrown out. In a recent interview with me, Dershowitz acknowledged the low evidentiary bar necessary at this juncture but still opined that Corey...

    April 24, 2012 (AlbertMohler.com) - The sexual revolution of the last several decades has transformed any public conversation about sex and sexuality. The revolutionaries directed their attention to the dismantling of an entire edifice of sexual morality that had been basically intact for well over 2,000 years. At one point in the sexual revolution, efforts were made to legalize prostitution as a “victimless crime,” a term that anyone could recognize as an oxymoron. Most of these efforts went nowhere in the United States and most of Europe, though “progressive” law enforcement officials often looked the other way and did little...

    Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has picked up the endorsement and fundraising support of entertainer Harry Belafonte, whose reputation as a calypso singer has been superseded by his service to international Marxism. During the Cold War, Belafonte sang at a “Concert for Peace” in communist East Germany, where he attacked President Reagan’s anti-communist foreign policy. A long-time supporter of the Castro dictatorship, he has more recently been singing the praises of Venezuelan Marxist ruler Hugo Chavez. The April 19 Warren fundraiser, which included Belafonte’s name on the letterhead, was held at the Manhattan penthouse of HBO executive Michael...

    A North Carolina Democrat faces serious sexual misconduct charges, and this time it isn't the state's former senator John Edwards. The ex-girlfriend of former state party executive Jay Parmley claims that he gave her HIV and his lawyers promised to put her on the Democratic National Committee's health insurance. Mr Parmley's ex Rebecca Burgin, 29, spoke out today saying that her 'biggest concern is for anybody else that had had a relationship with him that he did not tell'. Ms Burgin started dating Mr Parmley when she was 20 and he was her 32-year-old teacher at Oklahoma City Community College...

    Excerpted from Warman’s Coins and Paper Money by Arlyn G. Sieber, available from http://www.ShopNumisMaster.com. During the Revolutionary War, the states and Continental Congress continued to issue paper money, but its backing in hard currency was spotty at best. Inflation ensued, and the notes’ values plummeted. Some were called “shinplasters” because early Americans put them in their boots to help keep their feet warm. The saying “not worth a Continental” had its roots in the devaluation of Continental currency. Designs on state notes varied, but most featured inscriptions within elaborate borders. Coats of arms and crowns were also common. During the...

    Despite speculation that he might drop out of the presidential race soon, Newt Gingrich said he is pressing on during an exclusive interview with NewsChannel 36 anchor Dave Wagner Tuesday afternoon. “These reports somehow get exaggerated,” Gingrich. “We have 23 events this week…What I did say was that we are going to evaluate actively and honestly what has happened here.” Gingrich spent part of Tuesday at the Billy Graham library with his wife and campaign staff. He is expected at an event Tuesday night in Concord as well. “Under any circumstance we are going to be at every single event...
