  • Mullahs Tremble as Iran's People Honor Cyrus the Great at Pasargad

    This past Oct. 29, Iranians marked the international day of Cyrus the Great, the ancient ruler of the Persian empire whose legacy is credited with forging the Iranian national identity. King Cyrus II is held in great regard in Iran for creating the largest empire of civilized nations then known in the world, around 600 years before Christ. King Cyrus was not only a master military strategist, he differed from other conquerors of the time in his tolerance of the customs and cultures of those who came under his rule. He was the author of the world’s first human rights...
  • Lawyers Undercut Vance's Claim He Had No 'Case' Against Harvey Weinstein

    New York Law Journal ^ | October 13, 2017 | B. Colby Hamilton
    In the public furor over revelations that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office declined to pursue groping charges against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, the office’s defense has rested largely on insufficiency of evidence claims. In a statement released on Oct. 10, Chief Assistant DA Karen Friedman Agnifilo said that while the recording of Weinstein made by a victim working with the New York Police Department was “horrifying to listen to,” the office was ultimately unable to bring charges because “what emerged was insufficient to prove a crime ... which requires prosecutors to establish criminal intent.” The following day, Vance,...
  • Very Interesting Old Testament Reading from the Daily Office--January 20, 2017, Inauguration Day

    01/20/2017 6:14:19 AM PST · by sonrise57 · 13 replies
    I read the daily office for my morning devotions. Today's Old Testament reading is Isaiah 45:18-45. The reason it struck me is that the whole chapter begins with these words-- "Thus says the LORD to His anointed, to CYRUS, whose right hand I have grasped, to subdue nations before him and to loose the belts of kings, to open doors before him that gates may not be closed" The actual text of the reading, addressed to Cyrus is: 18For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens (he is God!), who formed the earth and made it (he established it;...

    American Thinker ^ | November 13, 2016 | Dan Truitt
    There's a really interesting story in the Old Testament that richly illustrates how God sometimes uses people who do not necessarily belong to him to further his goals for the human race. The book of Isaiah, chapters 44-45, talks about the restoration of the nation of Israel after its 70-year Babylonian exile, which Yahweh had decreed because of Israel's idolatry. For centuries, the prophets delivered Yahweh's pleas to his chosen people to abandon their idolatrous ways or face serious consequences. The Jews refused to listen, and judgment came. They lost everything: their temple was razed, their land was confiscated, and...

    Miley Cyrus just made a tearful plea for love and compassion after Donald Trump's stunning win over Hillary Clinton. Miley's explaining exactly why she's sad -- and man, is she sad. In the clip she does accept Donald as her next POTUS, but it came with a ton of waterworks. (The comments at the site are great)

    Eleven days prior to the election the FBI acted in confirmation of what Donald Trump prophesied. I've said all along that Mr. Trump is uncannily prophetic! He calls it "instincts." I introduced this in my book God's Chaos Candidate and listed several instances when he predicted things before they happened. This is the kind of executive acumen we need in the coming chaos that is coming to America. Here's the latest! Trump predicted that Anthony Weiner would expose all the Hillary secrets to the world.

    She came in like a wrecking ball. Singer and entertainer Miley Cyrus went door-knocking for Hillary Clinton at a George Mason University dorm Saturday afternoon. Dressed in an “American flag” outfit that consisted of an oversize blue bow and a red-and-white striped skirt, Cyrus told students she agrees with Clinton’s views. “Me and Hillary share equality for all. Everyone gets stuck on voting for her out of fear of what could be, but I would vote for her anyway,” she said. “Trump doesn’t understand how personal it is for women to be in control of their own health – access...

    "I am Cyrus" by Paul Charles Merkley In November 1953, just a few months after leaving the presidency of the United States, Harry S. Truman was brought to the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York to meet a group of Jewish dignitaries. Accompanying him was his good friend Eddie Jacobson, a comrade from his Army days and former business partner in a short-lived men's haberdashery 30 years earlier. Jacobson introduced his friend to the assembled theologians: "This is the man who helped create the State of Israel." Truman retorted, "What do you mean, "helped to create"? I am Cyrus. I...

    Iranian FM Zarif says that Netanyahu's position reflects "bigotry" over facts. WASHINGTON – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says that his country has saved the Jewish people three times in history, and does not seek their annihilation. In an interview with NBC News, Zarif rejected characterizations to the contrary put forth by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week in an address to a joint meeting of the US Congress. “Today the Jewish people face another attempt by yet another Persian potentate to destroy us,” Netanyahu said on the eve of Purim, commemorating the salvation of Iran’s Jews under threats...

    Miley Cyrus was too busy creating terrible music to pay attention to a Make-A-Wish kid. Miley Hodge, a seven-year-old girl with a fatal form of osteosarcoma, wanted to meet Justin Bieber more than anything in the world. But Bieber was clearly busy either getting arrested or smoking weed or both, so Hodge had to settle for her second favorite celebrity, Miley Cyrus. According to Radar Online, the Hodge family flew to Los Angeles, Calif. to meet Cyrus and were made to wait a week before finally meeting her at a recording studio. “The family went to Los Angeles and were...

    Townhall ^ | January 6, 2014 | Cortney O'Brien
    In October, shortly after her controversial MTV Video Music Awards act, Miley Cyrus hosted an episode of “Saturday Night Live.” She gave audiences another R-rated performance by donning a brown wig to cover her blond Mohawk and grinding to the song, “We Did Stop”—a spoof of her summer hit, “We Can’t Stop.” Who was Cyrus supposed to be? Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), partying with a flamboyant Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), portrayed by cast member Taran Killam. Bachmann (Cyrus) and Boehner (Killiam) were celebrating the successful shutdown of the federal government, thus proving they could “do whatever they want.” Ha. Politically...

    In daily Mass for the past number of days we’ve been reading from the books of Nehemiah and Ezra. These books deal with the return of the Jewish people from the Babylonian captivity.Most modern-day Christians have only a passing knowledge of these aspects of ancient Jewish history and these events may seem to have little to say to us. But in fact, they speak quite powerfully of very important human struggles today. Thus, a review of these historical events seems in order, as well as an application of them to our life and struggles today.To begin, the Jewish people, as...

    Recent polls suggest Barack Obama has become a turn-off. Why? In part, all presidents wear on Americans. Their presence has become as ubiquitous in our lives as the busts of the emperor Augustus dotting the Mediterranean world. So who wouldn’t annoy after speaking and appearing on our screens 24/7 for five years? But in Obama’s case, two character traits made him especially aggravating this year. Both explain why vero possumus and hope and change have descended to “you can keep your plan, period.” ~snip~ Why so? Few care to speculate anymore other than the obvious that his cursus honorum was...

    Miley Cyrus may have turned 21 years old on Saturday, but she's still her daddy's little girl. "Omg! Insider" was on the red carpet at the American Music Awards on Sunday and caught up with Billy Ray Cyrus who revealed what he gave to his famous daughter for the big birthday. "I got to surprise her with her first motorcycle," the country singer told us. "She immediately jumped right on it!" he added. Miley's doting dad went all out on the gift, spending a whopping $24,000 on the customized Can-Am Spyder ATV! And it looks as if the "Wrecking Ball"...

    I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way “cool” to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos. It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether it’s the music business or yourself doing the pimping. You ought be protected as a precious young lady by anyone in your employ and anyone around you, including you. This is a dangerous world. We don’t encourage our daughters to walk around naked...

While doing so, I will also take the opportunity to reflect on just how far...

    Our elites would be right at home in Petronius’s world of debauchery and bored melodrama. Sometime in the mid-first century a.d., an otherwise little known consular official, Gaius Petronius, wrote a brilliant satirical novel about the gross and pretentious new Roman-imperial elite. The Satyricon is an often-cruel parody about how the Roman agrarian republic of old had degenerated into a wealth-obsessed, empty society of wannabe new elites, flush with money, and both obsessed with and bored with sex. Most of the Satyricon is lost. But in its longest surviving chapter — “Dinner with Trimalchio” — Petronius might as well have...
