    The killer storm — responsible so far for 25 deaths across he Caribbean — is expected to pummel the Florida Keys early Sunday, then slam Fort Myers, Naples and Tampa with 130-mph winds and drenching rain.Coastal water could rise up to 15 feet — flooding homes and businesses, forecasters warned. “In the FLORIDA KEYS, it is a full-scale hurricane emergency,” The Weather Channel’s Bryan Norcross posted to Facebook. “Key West is probably going to get its worst storm in modern history, and perhaps ever.” And Miami isn’t in the clear either. While the state’s largerst metro region is out of...

    A good friend of mine, who also happens to be an outstanding author, once quipped, “If I am forced to choose a side, I choose the side which is not forcing me to choose sides.” Seldom have I ever encountered phrasing more apt. Because that’s precisely how I feel. I’ve been feeling that way, for years now. It was not a sudden thing. It was a gradual realization. The slow clarity of an underlying sentiment, incrementally surfacing. To make the picture more specific, let me lay out some background details. This is a bit wordy, so bear with me: When...

    Dear friends, It is very important to not only pray a lot but also to keep our eyes open for the very powerful and devastating traps of Satan, which are very well camouflaged and disguised “as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14). Due to the greatest lack of prayer and lack of regard for the holy Laws of God today, we have given great influence to the “powers of evil” (CCC 409) to be able do deceive us! A great number of people today have taken the easy way of “ignorance is bliss”, imagining that the truth and reality are...

    Donald Trump can be a great president. But for that to happen, two things must occur: He must follow through on key campaign commitments, and the Republican Congress must act on them. Here are nine commitments Trump made that the incoming Congress should make happen: 1. Completely repeal Obamacare. Trump's position paper on health care said: "Our elected representatives in the House and Senate must: Completely repeal Obamacare. Our elected representatives must eliminate the individual mandate. No person should be required to buy insurance unless he or she wants to." It further stated that reforms put in place after...

    In business, it would be called “on spec” how Europe, already in 2009, shortly after being elected and ahead of any major foreign policy decisions, awarded President Obama the Nobel Peace Prize. In doing so, “Europa got the kind of transnational American president it wanted,” The Wall Street Journal recently noted in a commentary. After almost eight years of Obama foreign policy, one, however, must wonder how much regret the selection committee may now experience about its decision. It was President Obama, himself, who after his election made the point that “elections do have consequences.” While his comment was made...

    Mr. Trump, in a statement emailed Monday evening by his spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, said: “Kellyanne came to me and asked whether or not she could go public with her thoughts on the matter. I encouraged her to do so. Most importantly she fully acknowledged there is only one person that makes the decision. She has always been a tremendous asset and that will continue.”

    If Donald Trump dredges up former President Bill Clinton's history of extramarital affairs to use it against his Democratic rival, it could be a risky move the GOP nominee amid the new storm he stoked over his own comments about and treatment of women. In his first debate on Monday against Hillary Clinton, Trump boasted that he had valiantly stayed away from the topic despite an inner dialogue with himself about whether to bring up the Clintons' marital woes. Before the debate, he had floated inviting Gennifer Flowers, who allegedly had an affair with the former president in the 1970s,...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed back on Buzzfeed report a day earlier that said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may have reversed course on his immigration policy proposals. The junior Alabama senator told co-host Tucker Carlson ending the “lawlessness” must be the first priority of the president. “He has not changed his view, but he had a great meeting with people who had different ideas as I understand. I wasn’t there, but he had a good discussion. He listened to all the different views. Look, we need a lawful system of...

    Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump 26m26 minutes ago I was asked about healthcare by Anderson Cooper & have been consistent- I will repeal all of #ObamaCare, including the mandate, period. I was referring to a backstop for pre-existing conditions. I will eliminate the law, in its entirety, & replace it w/ something much better. I will replace it with private plans, health savings accounts, & allow purchasing across state lines. Maximum choice & freedom for consumer. I'm self-funding and I am going to take care of the people – not the special interests and insurance companies like the other candidates. Remember,...
