    On Sunday, 6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi 6ix9ine, dropped “FEFE,” his new musical collaboration with Nicki Minaj. A matter of hours later, the rapper, whose given name is Daniel Hernandez, was reportedly kidnapped, pistol-whipped and robbed. According to the Associated Press, the New York Police Department confirmed the Brooklyn-born rapper visited a police station in the early hours of Sunday morning. According to the account he allegedly gave police, 6ix9ine was a passenger in a car around 4:30am when three men reportedly emerged from a second car, forced the rapper into their car and robbed him of “an undisclosed amount...

    Smith wrote a post on Facebook letting people in his community know that he wanted to offer free lawn care services for those in need who lacked the time, ability or resources to maintain their own yards. He set a personal goal to mow 40 yards. Within two months, he had mowed over 100. A few months later, Smith founded Raising Men Lawn Care Service with the mission to inspire boys (and girls) to help their neighbors in need. In 2017, he took things one step further by organizing the 50 Yard Challenge, inspiring kids worldwide to mow 50 lawns...

    Audio taken during a Democratic National Committee (DNC) Rules Committee conference call reveals the immediate reaction to the news Wednesday of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedys retirement. In the audio clip shared on Twitter by Politico reporter David Siders, Democrats on the call express disappointment that Kennedy, a moderate conservative justice known for often being a swing vote, would be retiring. After one participant reads the news aloud, cries of oh, and oh my god can be heard. The audio was taken during a public conference call on superdelegate reform. This is not good news, one person says. Another attendee...

    Political bickering has long been a roadblock to getting big things done in the US but a grassroots movement getting few headlines could yet herald a new American age of change. A green giant in a loin cloth would seem an unlikely indicator for what some describe as a revolution under way in the heart of America. But the Jolly Green Giant statue on Highway 169 in rural Minnesota wears a 48-inch (1.2m) smile for a reason. Accompanied by the slogan Dream Big, he typifies a sense of hope and renewal in the nearby city of Blue Earth that is...
  • A Christian Nationalist Blitz (NYT alert)

    Americas Christian nationalists have a new plan for advancing their legislative goals in state capitols across the country. Its stated aim is to promote religious freedom. Not shy, they call it Project Blitz. Blitz accurately describes the spirit of the enterprise, but the mission has little to do with what most Americans would call religious freedom. This is just the latest attempt by religious extremists to use the coercive powers of government to secure a privileged position in society for their version of Christianity. The idea behind Project Blitz is to overwhelm state legislatures with bills based on centrally manufactured...

    Once God gets his hands on you, the devil has LOST another victim - FOREVER! I heard a story years ago about a British college student, a Christian young man in the 1800s, who was having great difficulties with his very sarcastically outspoken atheist philosophy professor. Daily, in the closing minutes of his class, his prof would read some verse or Bible story and then make jokes about the Bible and brutally ridicule anyone of his students who had ever expressed belief in God. On one particular day the teacher singled out the young man and laughingly demanded that he...

    Florida Senator Marco Rubio admits that the Republican tax cut plan to aid corporations and the wealthy will require cuts to Social Security and Medicare to pay for it. Rubio told reporters this week that in order to address the federal deficit, which will grow by at least $1 trillion if the tax plan passes, Congress will need to cut entitlement programs such as Social Security. Advocates for the elderly and the poor have warned that entitlement programs would be on the chopping block, but this is the first time a prominent Republican has backed their claims. We have to...

Linda Wenzel was dragged from the rubble in Mosul as Iraqi forces liberated the city in July and is now being held in Baghdad where her fate rests in the hands of the country's court system.

But Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has now said Iraq's judiciary will decide...

Now that the U.S. has pulled out of the treaty, theres no reason to expect the financial benefits.

There was a woman who was so moved by Jesus’ mercy that she wept for joy and showed extravagant, grateful love. Are we that way? Too often we are not. And as Jesus pointed out, a big reason for that is that we do not understand the magnitude of our sin. We miss the greatness of God’s mercy; we lack gratitude for what He has...
