    In response to this author’s article published in FrontPage Magazine last Friday about how CAIR leader Nezar Hamze is now a Deputy Sheriff at the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO), Sheriff Scott Israel appeared on WFTL-Fort Lauderdale’s Joyce Kaufman radio show to discuss the matter. On the show, Israel made a number of weak excuses as to why this has taken place. The following report will challenge these excuses, in an effort to expose this wrongdoing. Since the beginning of this year, Sheriff Scott Israel has been hopping around from radical mosque to radical mosque, getting his smiling face photographed with...

    On Saturday, Rep. Devin Nunes spoke at CPAC 2018 about his work as the head of the House Intelligence Committee, which has been investigating allegations of serious abuses of power by the Obama administration in surveilling the Trump presidential campaign back in 2016. Nunes spent a significant amount of time taking the mainstream media to task for its slanted coverage of he and his Republican colleagues’ efforts to bring their findings about FBI and DOJ abuses to the public. “What’s you’ve really seen is the collapse of the media,” Nunes argued. “Most Americans are understanding that no matter where you’re...

    Top globalists, communists, and Islamists from around the globe gathered this month on the Arabian Peninsula for the World Government Summit — yes, that is the confab’s real name — to push for what they called a “new world order.” More than a few speakers made clear that liberty, self-government, and the “America First” agenda were in the crosshairs. On the other hand, Big Government, trans-humanism, and globalism were presented as the solution to basically everything, from alleged man-made “global warming” and health problems to unemployment and even hate. Aside from global governance and statism, one of the key themes...

    The Hill ^ | 02/24/18 | Max Greenwood
    The White House is weighing a plan to use "red flag laws" to confiscate guns from people deemed too dangerous to possess them, according to a Bloomberg report. The laws — extreme risk protection orders — allow authorities to temporarily take firearms away from people that judges have determined to be a danger to themselves and others. Five states already have such laws in place. According to Bloomberg, the White House has been looking at an Indiana version of the law. The Trump administration is considering a plan to encourage other states to enact the laws. One way the administration...

    Belgrade, February 22, Interfax - Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said he is confident that the Russian and Serbian Orthodox Churches will be able to live through this "difficult time," when attempts are being made in various countries to involve churches in political games, with dignity. During his speech at the presentation of the mosaic dome of the Church of Saint Sava in Belgrade on Thursday, Lavrov said that "today's event symbolizes spiritual and cultural closeness between our citizens, our Churches." "It seems to me especially important to demonstrate such unity in a period when the Russian Orthodox Church and...

    Philadelphia, Pa., Feb 22, 2018 / 02:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- St. John Paul II’s encyclical Fides et ratio will mark its 20th anniversary this year, on Sept. 14. Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia reflected on the encyclical in his essay “Believe that you may Understand” in the March 2018 issue of First Things. Making the case that the 1998 encyclical on the relationship between faith and reason was a “prophetic” document which “confronts the crisis of truth within the Catholic Church herself,” the archbishop warned against “faddish” theology. Vigorous philosophy and good theology are, rather, mutually enriching. “Knowledge of the...

    Former UK Independence Party Leader Nigel Farage praised President Trump during his address Friday afternoon at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), saying that his decision to back Trump in 2016 “was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life.” He further stated that Trump “exceeded all expectations” and that the US leader is “on the way to being a truly great president of this country.” Having spoken with Trump earlier in the day, Farage said that he found Trump “at ease with himself,” “in good humor,” and “at the very top of his game.” “The establishment are...

    In 1980, President Reagan won the election by asking Americans one simple question: “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” In 2016, the question was more of an implicit one from Donald Trump: Was America better off then than it was eight years ago, when Barack Obama took office? The country answered no, and duly elected Donald Trump to the presidency. Now, just a year and change later, a new Gallup poll shows more Americans are satisfied with with the direction of country, now under Donald Trump, than have been in over a decade. “Forty-five percent...

    Cult-type 'New Religious Movements' could hold weddings in Church of England churches if proposals contained in a new bill pass, according to an Anglican bishop. John Gummer's ecumenical marriage bill, which passed its second reading in the House of Lords on Friday, could allow 'New Religious Movements', which include controversial groups like Scientologists, the right to use Church of England buildings for weddings. That is according to Tim Dakin, the bishop of Winchester, who spoke against the bill this morning. The private member's bill is designed to allow Catholics, Methodists and other Christian denominations' marriages to take place in Church...

    The seal was found ten feet from where the same archaeological team had already found another one belonging to King HezekiahAn archaeological discovery near Jerusalem’s Temple Mount may be proof of the life of the biblical prophet Isaiah, according to the Biblical Archaeology Review. A broken 8th-century BCE clay seal impression – known as a “bulla”– seems to contain an inscription that reads “Belonging to Isaiah,” and a partial spelling of the word “prophet” next to it. As read in the article published by The Algemeiner, Dr. Eilat Mazar, a Hebrew University archeologist whose team discovered the seal in an...

    SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who has been a leading opponent of President Trump on Capitol Hill, told thousands of Democratic activists and officials “to get ready for impeachment.” Speaking at the California Democratic Party’s annual convention in San Diego, Waters said that she believes special counsel Robert Mueller, who’s been helming the investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 election, is “getter closer” to figuring out who colluded with Russia. "I say it is time to get ready for impeachment," Waters said to roaring applause. “I cannot wait and I’m counting on special counsel Mueller to...

    "I will say what Russia and what Iran and what Syria have done recently is a humanitarian disgrace," Trump told a news conference at the White House on February 23. "What those three countries have done to those people is a disgrace," he added. Earlier, the United States criticized Russia over the bombing of eastern Ghouta, saying Moscow had a "unique responsibility" for more than 400 people being killed in the Damascus suburb this month.
  • Billy Graham's Funeral (Is this a vanity?)

    Been around here a long time, but this is my first post. I'm not sure if it's a vanity or not, but hopefully it's well-received. I'm wondering about people's opinion on the question of whether Billy Graham would be receiving the same (well-deserved) honors and attention after his passing if Obama the Commie was still the president. This question occurred to me on the way home tonight, and I'd like to hear what y'all think.

    It’s been a rough year for the Pittsburgh basketball program. In its second year with Kevin Stallings as head coach, the Panthers have not won a single game in conference play and entered Saturday’s home game against No. 1 Virginia with an 8-21 (0-16 ACC) record. With its first half performance against the Cavaliers, Pitt may have finally hit rock bottom. The Panthers went into the half trailing 30-7. Yes, Pitt scored only seven points in 20 minutes of action.
  • Legislation by Lynch Mob

    02/24/2018 5:26:22 PM PST · by BBell · 11 replies ^ | 2/23/18 | GEORGE NEUMAYR
    The gun-confiscation Democrats are playing a dangerous game. Entrusting legislation to politically correct lynch mobs — which is the first instinct of Democrats after any tragedy — doesn’t make for good policy or good politics. In the feverish mood of the moment, a Democrat could propose house-to-house confiscatory gun sweeps and receive a standing ovation in certain quarters. But the desire for that demagoguery will pass and the Democrats will find themselves once again on the wrong side of the gun issue. Even Obama dimly understood the toxic politics of gun confiscation and gun bans. After he accused Americans of...

    House Intelligence Commmittee Chairman Devin Nunes was ready to go with his own response to the Democrats’ memo that I have embedded in the adjacent post. I have uploaded his point-by-point response to Scribd and embedded it below. It is a useful document. Moreover, by contrast with Adam Schiff et al., Nunes is a credible player. Consistent with my comments, he notes some of the Democrats’ rebuttals of points not made by the Republicans. In any event, here is his response.

    washingtonexaminer ^ | Feb 23, 2018 | Philip Klein
    President Trump's speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference started out as a relatively tame performance touting signature accomplishments such as tax cuts and judicial nominations, but it took an ugly turn as he moved to the topic of immigration, broadly painting those who come here as a result of the lottery system as "horrendous." The context was that Trump was lambasting Democrats for not agreeing to his terms as part of an immigration deal. Though they're willing to give him funding for the wall, he said, they won't budge on other issues, such as chain migration and ending the...

    Atlanta-based rapper T.I. believes that the gun debate following the recent school shooting is “a tough one,” but he still believes the Second Amendment needs to be protected to maintain American citizens’ way of life. “It’s a tough one,” the 37-year-old rapper told TMZ. “I think you should probably make it more difficult for people who aren’t mentally stable to have guns, and maybe there should be some … I just honestly feel like if you lose the right to bear arms as a citizen, then you know what I’m saying, it’s easy to enslave. It’s easy for the government...

    Virginia Catholic Conference, Abortion, and the Tenth Amendment My pastor recently asked me if I would be the point of contact in the parish for the Virginia Catholic Conference (VCC) which is basically the Catholic lobby group for the two Virginia dioceses, Arlington and Richmond. I rarely say yes to anything without giving it serious consideration and research, so I've been examining the VCC website and looking at their 2018 legislative agenda. Not surprisingly, their agenda is filled with issues that are questions of prudential judgment (on things like immigration, gun control, consumer protection, etc.) rather than issues involving non-negotiable...
