    . . . . After the robber demanded money, Chitwood said the older man “immediately reached out to the gunman’s right hand” and attempted to take control of the gun. “A struggle ensues — this is a 67-year-old tangling with a much younger man — and as (the robbery victim) starts to lose his balance, he reaches into his waistband and pulls out his gun, a .38-caliber revolver,” Chitwood said. “As he’s falling backwards, he fires one shot.” The robbery suspect, described as a black male in his late teens or early 20s, was shot once in the head and...
  • Gas Tax Hike Touted for Transportation Woes

    WOAI News Radio San Antonio ^ | March 21, 2014 | Jim Forsyth
    The Texas Legislature’s point man [Drew Darby] on transportation funding says Texas motorists need to understand that a higher gas tax would be a more 'open and transparent' way of dealing head on with the state's transportation crisis than the 'congestion tax' that motorists are currently paying every day. "I think we need to revert to pay as your go," State Rep. Drew Darby (R-San Angelo) told the San Antonio Mobility Coalition."Nine times members of the Legislature have raised the gasoline tax to pay for our transportation infrastructure, but that hasn't happened since 1991. Lawmakers over the past several years...
  • They Call it Darby Day

    02/15/2014 6:53:37 AM PST · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | February 15, 2014 | Paul Greenberg
    It was Darby Day in Fort Smith, Ark., one Friday this snowy month, and the students at Darby Junior High held their annual observance in honor of the school's namesake. Just who was Bill Darby of Fort Smith, Ark.? He was a brigadier general, a West Pointer, and a legend. He wasn't just a U.S. Army Ranger, he was the Rangers' first commander and founder. He began not just a special force but a special tradition. The Brits had their commandos, and now we had our Rangers. They had their Orde Wingate and his Chindits, we had our Bill...
  • Examine Yourselves Whether You Be in the Faith, Part 1

    11/21/2013 11:02:12 AM PST · by redleghunter · 528 replies ^ | September 24, 1978 | John MacArthur
    Paul calls for an examination in another passage and I want you to notice this. It's the last chapter of II Corinthians, Chapter 13, and verse 5, I want you to note what it says, Il Corinthians 13:5, just the first sentence, "'Examine yourselves, whether you are in the faith; (prove it, is what he's saying) prove yourselves." You say to someone "are you a Christian?" 'Yes.' What do you base that on? 'Well so many years ago I made a decision.' That means nothing. The Bible never verifies anybodies salvation on the basis of the past, It's always on...
  • Never Before Seen Footage: Andrew Breitbart on 'American Hero' Brandon Darby

    Breitbart ^ | 9/11/13
    For the people that loved and admired Andrew Breitbart, it will be impossible not to watch this never-been-seen footage of him without having a profound sense of what we have lost. You're about to see a nine minute clip that's part of a longer 45 minute interview that was shot for the new film Informant about Andrew's friend and protégé Brandon Darby. Although the interview is specifically about Darby, it also carries a much broader meaning. It's a reminder that when we lost Andrew in March 2012, the world was robbed of the most fervent warrior against the modern left...

    They were not to be called Commandos. The Brits had dibs on that name. And they had earned it. Our special forces would train in Northern Ireland at the start of the Second World War, and while they might have British trainers and instructors, they'd have to be called something else. The brass would choose a name. They chose Rangers. This outfit would also need a commander. More than a commander -- a leader, one who understood that this special force would have to be, well, special. Its members would always take the offensive, springing on the enemy as if...
  • Fall into the 'Gap' ... Dispensational style

    12/03/2011 2:52:32 PM PST · by Iggles Phan · 42 replies
    Last week we explored Dispensationalism's reversal of Daniel's 70th Week from Jesus Christ to the Devil. I think many on this chat page were astonished by this exposition. Today, we will explore how Dispensationalism took this lie and formed another: the Parenthesis Gap Theory. This 'gap' was 'unknown and unforeseen' to Christianity until Darby and Scofield 'uncovered' it in the 19th century. But is it really there? Let's read carefully: 24: Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity,...
  • Why I do not believe in the 'Rapture'

    11/26/2011 3:33:54 PM PST · by Iggles Phan · 631 replies
    My problem with the 'Rapture' (pre-millenial; pre-tribulation) teaching is that it forces its adherents to actually REVERSE the Person of Jesus Christ to the Devil. That's correct. In the 'Rapture' (or Dispensational) scheme the believer is asked to take the Person of Daniel's 70th Week (Who is Jesus Christ at the Cross) described in Chapter 9, verse 27a: "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, ..." ... and reverse this 'he' to mean a 'future Antichrist'. Are you confused?...
  • Is Dispensationalism a Recent Doctrine? How Do YOU Define 'Recent'?

    The Omega Letter ^ | August 11, 2011 | Jack Kinsella
    One of the most common objections to Dispensationalism offered by Preterists and Covenant theologians is that, according to them, it was an invention based on a 'vision' ascribed to a young Scottish girl named Margaret MacDonald. As they tell it, in 1830, she had a vision about the end of the world and when she came out from under her trance, she wrote it down. This account attracted the attention of Edward Irving and his church later claimed Margaret as one of their own prophetesses. Irving also had an interest in prophecy and held prophetic conferences. The historian of Irving's...

    What began nearly 20 years ago as denial of the many bad things that would happen in the Greater Yellowstone area if gray wolves were brought in from Canada, continues to this day. It was predicted that the wolves would kill off their prey base and that is happening. Information was presented to Ed Bangs, USFWS head of wolf reintroduction that wolves carry more than 30 different infectious diseases, some harmful and/or deadly to humans, and that was ignored. Disease is now becoming a common occurrence across the Northern Rockies where wolves are prolific. The same deaf, dumb and blind...
  • Who, then, should be classed as dispensationalists?

    02/08/2010 9:18:08 AM PST · by fishtank · 33 replies · 361+ views
    "What men, then, according to these definitions, should be classed as dispensationalists? The answer to this question might be stated in a variety of ways. Three of these may suffice: (1) Any person is a dispensationalist who trusts the blood of Christ rather than bringing an animal sacrifice. (2) Any person is a dispensationalist who disclaims any right or title to the land which God covenanted to Israel for an everlasting inheritance. And (3) any person is a dispensationalist who observes the first day of the week rather than the seventh. To all this it would be replied that every...

    You’ve probably never heard of Brandon Darby. The former community organizer who saved American lives by undermining a left-wing terrorist plot at the 2008 Republican convention used to be a proud member of the radical left. He called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. He hated cops. He consorted with eco-terrorist tree-spikers, radical feminists and black nationalists. He was approached to rob an armored car and asked to commit arson to fight gentrification. He mouthed politically correct slogans about the Bush administration. Government didn’t care about people, and he thought the botched response to Katrina proved it. When he...
  • John Nelson Darby: "Evidence from Scripture of the passing away of the present dispensation"

    Evidence from Scripture of the passing away of the present dispensation. by J. N. Darby. <02007E> 89 The testimony of Scripture is the only secure resting-place for man amid the darkness of this world. This, through the teaching of the Spirit, is the believer's light and security; from this his judgment flows; and, consequently, from this the rule and foundation of his conduct springs. Wrong thoughts as to God's dealings, and our own place before Him, must lead to wrong judgment as to the conduct claimed from us; and thus all our service will be folly, and, perhaps, our hopes...

    When the scheduled federal trial begins this month for two Texas men who were arrested during the Republican National Convention on charges of making and possessing Molotov cocktails, one of the major witnesses against them will be a community activist who acted as a government informant. Brandon Darby, an organizer from Austin, Tex., made the news public himself, announcing in an open letter posted on Dec. 30 on that he had worked as an informant, most recently at last year’s Republican convention in St. Paul. “The simple truth is that I have chosen to work with the Federal Bureau...

    FORT HOOD -- In his quarter century working in military courts, attorney Guy Womack can count on the fingers of one hand the times he has allowed a client to testify. "My knee-jerk reaction is never to do that," said Womack, an ex-Marine Corps lawyer based in Houston. "I've never regretted not doing that." But he may make an exception to his rule for Spc. Charles Graner Jr., the Army reservist accused of leading the much-publicized abuse of detainees at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. He says Graner, whose trial begins with opening statements Monday, can explain better than anyone...

    The whistleblower who alerted officers to the torture of Iraqi prisoners of war was Specialist Joseph Darby, 24. Bernadette Darby, his wife of six years, said she didn't know about her husband's role until a reporter called her on Sunday, but it sounded like something he would do. "Whenever he knows something's wrong, he doesn't stand by it," she said. Darby's name emerged this weekend in an article by Seymour Hersh in The New Yorker, which detailed a report by Major-General Antonio Taguba in February that accused soldiers from the 372nd Military Police Company of "sadistic" treatment of Iraqi prisoners....

    The Why of the Sawgrass Rebellion It's on the eastern border of the Everglades, down on the southern tip of Florida, Miami-Dade County. For decades bungling and sometimes viciously renegade officialdom has called it "The 8.5 Square Mile Area". Resident Madeleine Fortin calls it "Pariah". On October 19, Real Americans are going there to do something about it. It's called The Sawgrass Rebellion. In the delivered-under-oath words of another "Pariah" resident, Ibel Aguilera, this is why: TESTIMONY OF MRS. IBEL AGUILERA RESIDENT OF THE 8.5 SQUARE MILE AREA AND DIRECTOR UNITED PROPERTY OWNERS AND FRIENDS OF THE 8.5 SMA,...
