    'Build a Wall' to Block ISIS Yet another—perhaps most important—reason for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. May 6, 2016 Raymond Ibrahim    Originally published by the Gatestone Institute.Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. Of all the legitimate reasons a majority of Americans support U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump’s plan to “build a wall” along the U.S./Mexican border, perhaps the most important is least known: Islamic terrorists, including ISIS operatives, are trying to use the porous border as a way to smuggle WMDs into the U.S. and launch terror attacks that would make...

    Is everyone finally exhausted, or near exhaustion, from squeezing the puss out of this political pimple? Everyone has their own opinion about this ugly oozing blemish - who caused what, who insulted whom, lied about the other, is a quick change artist, etc., etc., etc. Is it time to stop picking at it so that slowly there remains some ability to heal?

Speaking to the NAACP, she told the all-black crowd that “I get it.”  The “it” Clinton referred to was the trials and tribulations of being a black American. “Imagine if white kids were 50 percent more likely to die from asthma than white kids.

    The Royal Navy fired flares to warn off a Spanish patrol boat approaching an American nuclear submarine off Gibraltar. The fast patrol boat HMS Sabre fired warning shots across the bow of a Guardia Civil vessel as it twice tried to cut across the path of USS Florida during an incursion into Gibraltar’s waters. Gibraltar says Spanish vessels regularly stray deep into its territorial waters and the Foreign Office has attacked the incursions as provocative. But defence sources said it was rare for a Royal Navy vessel to fire flares and it had only happened a couple of times in...

    “Considering the reproach of Christ greaterriches than the treasures of Egypt . . .” (Hebrews 11:26). Trials can show that material things are inadequate to meet our deepest needs. We rely every day on material possessions—cars, computers, pagers, telephones, microwaves, radios, and TVs. These familiar conveniences make us feel as though it’s quite a hardship to cope without them. Therefore it’s difficult to avoid the pitfall Jesus warned about in Matthew 6:24, “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other.

The first disciple Matthew's gospel names is "Simon, who is called Peter" (Matt. 10:2). He was a fisherman by trade but Jesus called him to be a fisher of men.

Deputy development director at the Slavitsa ice cream factory Rasil Mustafin, said that the name was not political but chosen due to the product's chocolate flavor. “There's no political underpinning. We have no intention to offend anyone,” he said. “Someone at the factory came up with the idea.” The product designers were inspired by a Soviet-era cartoon, said the factory's financial director Anatoli Ragimkhanov.

He was dubbed "The Grim Sleeper" because of a 13-year gap between slayings attributed to him.
