    Pike County Courier ^ | 20 February 2018 | Frances Ruth Harris
    NEWFOUNDLAND — A multi-day festival to celebrate assault rifles begins in Pike County just one week after one was used to gun down more than 30 people, 17 fatally, in a Parkland, Fla., school. In recent years, the famous Moon family has brought to Pike County both a company that sells assault rifles and a church that puts them at the center of religious observances. The church's pastor and his followers say their devotion to the AR-15, a weapon of war used again and again in the nation's worst mass shootings, is rooted in Christian love. They do not see...

    All speakers in the Rose Garden celebration agreed that the 217-213 House victory; to repeal and replace Obamacare, was a victory,non-political, and for the People. Well, it was a victory, and we'll take it. There is a long way to go, and at least none there denied it. Aside of the sore backs and red palms, something did emerge from all the mutual admiration that did surprise me, and I hope is a good sign for the future. It seemed that Trump, and especially Rep, House Leadership, used this narrow victory to make peace and give Trump a lot of...

We've fought, prayed, cried, laughed, shared, discussed, cursed, been banned, prayed more, laughed some more! Now we CELEBRATE ! What a celebration that will be: Cheers And Spirits for all!

    Leftists have reminded the world just how much they hated Phyllis Schlafly. As news of the conservative author and activist’s death spread, Twitter was deluged with tweets celebrating her death. While most of the tweets were from ordinary members of the public, many others came from columnists and commentators. Here’s Jeb Lund, a columnist for The Guardian.

  • Credible Source on 9-11 Muslim Celebrations: FBI

    One retired FBI agent says Donald Trump’s claims of seeing Muslim celebrations following the attacks on 9-11 are absolutely plausible. Jim Burkett was an assistant special agent in charge with the FBI’s office in Boston during 9-11 and afterward. He says during that time the office received tons of phone calls from people who feared more attacks and others reporting suspicious activity. Many of those calls, said Burkett, came from concerned and angry Americans reporting Muslim’s celebrating over the destruction of the twin towers and damage to the Pentagon. The calls were logged, reports were made and there were “stacks...

    We celebrate the red, white, and blue today, because it’s July 4, Independence Day. If you haven’t noticed, flags are a big deal in the media lately. Unless you’ve hidden your head in a bag, or lived under a rock, you couldn’t help but see story after story about flags. Our flag’s design goes back a long way: on June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress passed the Flag Resolution, which described the American flag as “thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” Later, Congress acted...

    Baltimore crowds celebrate tough charges against police Last Baltimore: Residents of impoverished West Baltimore erupted in jubilation and relief Friday after authorities charged six officers in the death in custody of a young African American man. Many had been parading through riot-scarred neighborhoods and chanting the victim`s name as security forces nervously looked on. "Baltimore people, we did it!" shouted 18-year-old John Johnson. "Justice needs to be served!" Cars streamed down West North Avenue in a cacophony of horns, as a man wearing a t-shirt that read "I Bleed Baltimore" thrust his fists into the air and cheered. The community...

Sing with all the saints in glory, sing the resurrection song! Death and sorrow, earth's dark story, to the former days belong. All around the clouds are breaking, soon the storms of time shall cease; in God's likeness we, awaking, know the everlasting peace. 2. O what glory, far exceeding all that eye has yet perceived! Holiest hearts, for ages pleading, never that full joy conceived. God has promised, Christ prepares it, there on...

    Don't get me wrong ... I can appreciate taking any excuse to party, get drunk, and pretend that the world has been set aright in one fell swoop. (I've been waiting 25 years for the Dodgers to win another World Series for that very reason, and 20 for Notre Dame to win a football championship.) But this is truly, truly strange --- and very revealing, in a number of ways: Hundreds took to the streets as macabre ‘Thatcher death parties’ were held late into the night across the country, organised by critics of the "Iron Lady."Smashed shop windows, paint bombs...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Authorities were investigating as a possible hate crime the discovery of uncooked bacon scattered on the grounds of a New York City park where Muslims gathered to celebrate the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, police said on Monday. Festivities to mark the close of Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, on Sunday had been publicized in local media and drew 1,500 participants to New Dorp Beach Park on Staten Island, said Cyrus McGoldrick, spokesman for the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Organizers found uncooked bacon strewn about...
