    Obama is Not in Mourning for Our Dead Marines and Sailor Submitted by Donald R. May on July 19, 2015 - 1:55am Barack Hussein Obama does not seem to be in mourning for the four Marines and one Sailor killed in Chattanooga by the Islamic Terrorist. Many flags across our nation are flying at half-staff, but not by order of President Obama. He did not order flags at the White House and other federal buildings to be flown at half-staff. Obama did make the effort to light the White House in rainbow colors to celebrate the recent Supreme Court ruling...
  • Secularists Are Trying to Take Christ Out of Christmas

    The Christian Diarist ^ | December 21, 2014 | JP
    “Joyous Kwanzaa.” “Happy Hanukkah.” “Merry Christmas.” “Happy Ramadan.” So proclaims the secularist “holiday” poster that greets visitors to the office building where I labor. The building owner obviously thought the poster noncontroversial. But this Christ follower found it offensive. Because the upcoming holiday is not about Kwanza, the seven-day afrocentric celebration created in 1965, nor Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish festival hardly celebrated until the 1970s, and certainly not Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting that actually takes place in June. No, Jesus is the reason for the season. It is the annual acknowledgement of the fulfillment two mellennia ago of...

I am not really all that tech- or internet-savvy. I have seen many web-sites listed as sources for the many threads here. Are there any other sites where information about all things politics and current affairs is available? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Rich's answers to these questions would eventually be evaluated by the intelligence community, but she didn't feel much pressure because this wasn't her full-time gig."I'm just a pharmacist," she said.

    TUSTIN ( — Authorities say a 27-year-old man was killed instantly when he made contact with an energized power line. Orange County Fire Authority Captain Steve Concialdi tells CBS2 that the man was taking pictures of Saturday night’s sunset from a tree in the back of his parent’s Tustin home when he was electrocuted. Concialdi says the victim’s parents went looking for him and called out his name to no avail. CBS2′s Art Barron reports that the victim managed to post his pictures on Facebook. “After he took the pictures and posted them on Facebook, he came in contact with...

    The Olmsted County Sheriff’s department is investigating after deputies found a man dead near an abandoned farm. Deputies were called just after 8 o’clock Tuesday night to an abandoned residence off of 40th Ave. and Viola Road NE. Upon arrival they located the body of an adult male near a power pole. The sheriff’s department says after early investigations they believe the male was cutting and scrapping wire from the farm and that he cut into a live electrical wire. Although the exact cause of death is under investigation they it’s suspected that the male suffered an electrocution. A vehicle...

    Wichita police say a man in his 20s died while trying to steal copper on the city's south side. A passerby called 911 after finding the man's body around 2 p.m. Friday near I-135 and Pawnee. His bicycle was found leaning against a utility pole along with a flashlight and bolt cutters, said Wichita Police Lt. Dennis Wilson. Police believe the man was electrocuted sometime overnight while attempting to cut a 7,200-volt line. Lily Wu is at the scene tracking the story and will have live updates on KAKE News at 5 and 6

    A letter to the editor today in the editorial pages of my local newspaper caught my attention. The writer lamented yesterday’s slaughter of 27 innocents in Newtown, Connecticut – as we all do. Then he identified the culprit – guns. We’ve never heard of a “mass-knifing” claiming so many victims, he pointed out. His implication was that, if we scrap the Second Amendment, there will be no more funerals for victims of mass murder. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. Timothy McVeigh did not use a gun in 1995 when he killed 168 people, including 10 children,...

    I worked in the White House staffer during the first Bush administration. I remember that the president was so mindful of being above reproach when it came to interactions with female staff, he often wouldn’t even make direct eye contact with them. He was an upright man, who took seriously his wedding vows to honor his wife and “forsake all others.” He took to heart the words of the Apostle Paul, who warned those of us who endeavor to lead righteous lives to “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. David Petraeus obviously did not heed the...

    During their three-year crime spree, the infamous young couple murdered nine police officers and at least as many civilians. The pair finally got what was coming to them on a dusty road in Louisiana, where a six-man posse ambushed them and shot them dead. Frank Hamer, the Texas Ranger who led the posse, was rewarded for his service by being allowed to take anything the outlaws had in their possession at the time of their deaths. So he took the Colt .45 semi-automatic pistol the 25-year-old male had in his waistband and the .38 Special the 23-year-old female concealed under...

    It was one year ago this month that lawmakers in Fresno County, California wisely rescinded their previous support for a local needle-exchange program, which supplied clean needles and syringes to junkies with which they could shoot up. Fresno recognized, however belatedly, that the program was enabling drug addiction in the name of so-called “harm reduction.” Dr. Marc Lasher, who founded Fresno’s needle exchange program, thinks the county’s ban wrongheaded. So every weekend, he and his team of volunteers pile on an old school bus (kind of like Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters, as immortalized by Tom Wolfe in “The...

His outrage and shock was echoed by representatives of the Islamic Circle of North America, Muslim American Society-Public Affairs and Civic Engagement, the Council of Muslim Organizations of the Greater Washington, D.C.

    When I caught the news reports that actress Donna D’Errico just returned from Turkey, where she climbed Mt.Ararat in search of Noah’s Ark, I initially thought it some kind of sacrilegious publicity stunt. After all, D’Errico is known for her role as a bikini-wearing vixen on TV’s “Baywatch,” and, before that, as a Playboy magazine centerfold. But I am now convinced the 44-year-old actress is on a spiritual quest: She truly wants to authenticate one of the great stories of the Bible. Indeed, she says, “I believe in the Bible.” Her interest in Noah’s Ark was sparked when she was...

    I caught a segment on the Phoenix local news about the Grand Opening of Barista Café, which welcomes its first patrons this upcoming Sunday. I wondered why the opening of yet another coffee shop would generate such buzz. As it turns out, Barista Café is not the usual coffee shop. Its competition is not Starbucks or Peets or Coffee Beanery. No, it’s targeting the market served by such franchises as Hooters, Twin Peaks and Tilted Kilt (which also got its start in Arizona). That’s because Barista Café is a “bikini” coffee shop, one of the nation’s first, if not the...

    Missouri voters decide the fate today of a ballot measure, Amendment 2, which would affirm the right of residents of the Show Me State to pray “individually or corporately in a private or public setting.” The proposed amendment to the Missouri Constitution has, of course, provoked much sound and fury from the godless element, as well as those who profess to believe in God, but who want to ban their Creator from the public square. “Help protect our children from indoctrination and a lifetime of ignorance,” exhorts the nascent Missouri chapter of the atheist Secular Coalition of America. “Missouri Amendment...

The bloodthirsty regime of Bashar al-Assad is slaughtering its own people, and steadily losing control of the country. The latest reports indicate that more than 20,000 Syrians have been murdered. Top Syrian officials are defecting. The rebels are steadily winning control of more and more of the country. Iran is sending forces to fight on behalf of the Assad regime against the rebels. Now Russian President Vladimir Putin is reportedly sending naval warships...

    Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton has suffered through a two-month slump, batting barely over .200 since June 1. There was rampant speculation as to what was ailing Hamilton, the five-time All Star, the 2010 American League Most Valuable Player. Some thought marital problems. Some others thought a relapse into the drug and alcohol abuse with which the 31-year-old struggled in a past life. But the Rangers basher ended the speculation yesterday, releasing a statement in which he attributed his recent problems at the plate to his disobedience to God. More specifically, his failure to quit chewing tobacco. Hamilton’s statement elicited...

The 24-year-old Sacramento woman has taken to the Internet to ask some benevolent stranger or another to buy her breast implants. “I didn’t get the boob gene from my mom,” she explains. “And it’s not something I would be able to afford by myself.” My first thought was that Gomes must work in the sex industry. And that the young woman figured larger breasts – in addition to her obvious computer skills – would make her a more marketable pole dancer or porn star or prostitute. But Gomes is a graphic designer, she says. And...

    The Republican Party failed on strategy in raising the debt ceiling. First, they proposed a Cap, Cut, and Balance bill that would only cut spending by $111 billion this year and would allow President Obama to raise the debt ceiling by $2.7 trillion. By 2019, it would cap spending at 19.9% of GDP. This bill fails to address the continuous growth of debt. After the bill died in the US Senate, Speaker John Boehner proposed his own bill that would cut about $900 billion by the next decade and would allow President Obama to raise the debt ceiling between $1.6-$1.8...

However, the sanctions did not even target Bashar al-Assad, who is leading the violent attacks.

    Now let’s get down to where the real problem with all this hand wringing over prophetic signs. Given dispensational prophetic presuppositions, there can’t be any prophetic events or preparation of prophetic events this side of what dispensationalists call the “rapture.” If the “rapture” is “imminent,” that is, if it can come at “any moment” and could have come at any moment for the past 2000 years, then it has to be a “signless event.” Keep in mind that I am not a dispensationalist. What I’m about to show is the major flaw in so much talks about “signs of the...

    Just how much power Congress has to regulate commerce is at the core of the Thomas More Law Center's lawsuit against President Barack Obama's health care legislation. The Commerce Clause is listed in the U.S. Constitution and gives Congress the power to regulate interstate commerce. Just how expansive those rights are is an argument in the battle over the health care law. The dispute revolves around the individual mandate of the health care plan that states every U.S. citizen would have to have health insurance. The Thomas More Law Center believes this violates the commerce clause of the Constitution. "I...
