    President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited Pittsburgh Tuesday in the aftermath of the horrific Synagogue shooting that left 11 dead. Pittsburgh resident Sheryl Mascio, however, captured a behind-the-scenes moment of the president as he visited survivors of the shooting at a nearby hospital. Mascio posted the video on Twitter and it quickly went viral. The video shows Trump and Melania stopping on their tour of the hospital to greet doctors and nurses who were tending to the victims.

    The victim tried to alert a nurse using a call button but witnesses testified it had been unplugged. A former Houston doctor convicted of sexually assaulting a patient while she was tethered to machines and receiving treatment for asthma won't serve any prison time and will instead serve 10 years' probation. The punishment has surprised defense attorneys, disappointed law enforcement and raised concerns from a victims advocacy group, the Houston Chronicle reported. The victim said through a former attorney that she had no comment and wanted to put it all behind her.

    FiveThirtyEight reporters use bias and selective ‘facts’ to color how they report their “hard numbers,” and appear to have a bone of contention with Catholic hospitals in the US. is an Opposition Media website that assures us of its superiority and authority: “FiveThirtyEight uses statistical analysis — hard numbers — to tell compelling stories about elections, politics, sports, science, economics and culture.” What that glowing description leaves out is that FiveThirtyEight reporters also use bias and selective ‘facts’ to color how they report their “hard numbers.” And speaking of firmness, the website appears to have a bone of contention...

    "In the name of Jesus Christ, I command you to stop!" The night of Jesus’ last meal with his disciples, Jesus told Peter - who had just assured Jesus that he would never be ashamed of their relationship - that (Saint, yes) Peter would in fact deny Him, that very night, three times before the rooster had finished crowing. And that is exactly what Peter did. Peter’s third denial was even made with him swearing at the person who had put the two of them together! By the time the cock had crowed twice, Peter, hearing that, wept bitterly lamenting...
