    Obama wanted to systematically change America, well, keep electing people like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and it will happen. But this change won’t be good for the real Americans! Obama might be gone but his legacy lives on. We all know that we are a country that is based on freedom and diversity but the left has gone too far! Everyone should express their religion as long as they don’t interfere with our way of living. Culver City is the latest city that has to put up with the enormously loud Islamic call to prayer 5 times a day...

    ... Various experts and intellectuals forecast warnings of things to come if we don't change our ways. These are mostly people from academia... "You must do as I say to avoid this catastrophe." If that were all there was to the manipulation, it would be a little thin and might not work. The element of time is critical here.... Take, for example, global cooling. It is not effective to claim that if we don't do X or refrain from doing Y, life as we know it will end tomorrow morning. We can't change things much in part of a day,...

    More than 1,100 former Justice Department employees signed a public letter Sunday urging Attorney General William P. Barr to resign over his handling of the case of President Trump’s longtime friend Roger Stone — and exhorted current department employees to report any unethical conduct.... Signatures for the letter were gathered by Protect Democracy, a group that has been critical of Barr’s handling of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russian election interference and Trump. The letter acknowledges there is little chance the signatories’ criticism will lead to Barr’s departure, adding, “because we have little expectation he will do...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other top Democrats on Friday slammed an upcoming vote that looks set to result in a quick end to President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. The New York lawmaker was responding to Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander’s announcement on Thursday night that he would not vote Friday to hear witnesses in the Senate trial. “It’s deeply disturbing that on something of such importance to the future of our democracy, a few of my Republican colleagues announced last night they’d vote against hearing additional evidence,” Schumer said at a news conference. “It’s clear where the American people...
  • Harvey Weinstein used his friendship with the Clintons to intimidate his victims, taking phone calls 'every other day' from the former president[tr]

    Harvey Weinstein used his close friendship with Bill and Hillary Clinton to 'intimidate' his victims into doing what he told them, a court heard Wednesday. The once-powerful Hollywood producer, 67, would call the former president, 73, while he was in front of at least one of his accusers and talked to him 'every other day', Weinstein's rape and sexual assault trial was told. The first witness in the case, Lance Maerov, said Weinstein 'made no secret of the fact he was connected to very powerful people', in particular the Clintons. Maerov, a former director at The Weinstein Co, Weinstein's film...
  • Mitch McConnell's impeachment tactics could win the trial but lose him the Senate

    Think ^ | January 22, 2020 | Michael Conway
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., may have successfully corralled his Republican colleagues Tuesday to defeat 11 efforts by Senate Democrats to subpoena key Trump administration witnesses and documents (and modify other rules) in the Senate impeachment trial. But these tactics have likely put Republican senators facing competitive races in an impossible bind ( two January polls show) that, in both battleground states and swing counties, more voters support Trump’s removal than approve of him. That dynamic could cost the Republicans control of the Senate after the 2020 elections — and, in that event, McConnell’s powerful post as majority leader...

    CNN anchor Don Lemon claimed that those who continue to insist that President Trump did nothing wrong are "mental" and have "got a problem." Lemon began by calling Wednesday's testimony "explosive" and said it was "not a good day" for the Trump administration during his nightly primetime handoff with fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo. "I have to say, at this point if you're continuing to say that there was no, as they say, 'quid pro quo,' or the president didn't ask, whether or not it's impeachable, that again is not up for me to decide, not up for you to...

    LeBron James said he thinks Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey "wasn't educated on the situation at hand" when he tweeted in support of Hong Kong. James told reporters Monday that people need to be careful about what they tweet and say as there can be ramifications. "I don't want to get into a ... feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn't educated on the situation at hand and he spoke," James said. He added that people could have been harmed "not only financially but physically, emotionally, spiritually." LeBron tweeted later clarifying his comments saying he did not...

    For the residents of Canton, Mississippi, faith in their elected officials must be at an all-time low. The city has been facing seemingly endless election scandals in the past couple of years. Five local officials—including an alderman, the fire chief, and the city clerk—have been convicted of a variety of crimes stemming from their efforts to rig a 2017 municipal election, and can never seek public office again. It’s disturbing that so many elected officials, entrusted to represent the people and improve the community, were instead able to corrupt the electoral system in the name of power and personal gain....
  • "Encouragement for St. Timidity" (Sermon on 2 Timothy 1:1-14)

    10/05/2019 5:29:08 PM PDT · by Charles Henrickson · 4 replies ^ | October 6, 2019 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “Encouragement for St. Timidity” (2 Timothy 1:1-14) Fear, or timidity, can paralyze a person and render him ineffective. This is true when it comes to our life as Christians. We live in a hostile world. We’re in enemy territory. The world is not friendly to the Christian faith. Where will we find the courage we need to be faithful Christians? Faithful Christians are those not ashamed of the gospel, nor afraid of suffering for it. Not ashamed, not afraid. The alternative is that we turn into tame and timid “people-pleasers.” St. Paul addresses this issue when he writes to Timothy...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden's presidential campaign called on news executives to stop booking Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani as a guest on news programs. Two top Biden campaign advisers in a letter addressed the leaders of news and cable networks and some anchors, saying that Giuliani's appearance on news networks is giving the lawyer and his "false, debunked conspiracy theories" undeserved credibility, The Daily Beast first reported. The letter has since been shared on social media. “While you often fact check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough," the letter says. "By...

    [Catholic Caucus] Missouri Bishop Wants to Gag Michelle Malkin, Squeezes Disavowal From Pro-Life Group Bishop Edward Rice unhappy with Malkin's criticism of U.S. bishops and immigration lobbying Following noted political commentator and author Michelle Malkin's presentation to the Missouri-based Vitae Foundation, Springfield-Cape Girardeau Bp. Edward Rice succeeded in intimidating the pro-life organization and slurred Malkin for her remarks linking the Catholic Church and illegal immigration.  Malkin was the featured speaker at a Vitae Foundation event in Springfield, Missouri, on Aug. 20. As part of her 40-minute reflections on the pro-life movement and her personal pro-life experiences as the daughter of a neonatalogist, Malkin briefly diverged from her topic and connected...

  • New criticism for Dems who threatened Supremes in gun case

    The dispute is over a brief submitted to the justices by several Democratic senators. The case involves a New York gun law that was challenged and eventually withdrawn by the city. The court case still is pending and some fear the court could establish a nationwide precedent they may not like. Already, Harvard professor Laurence Tribe has scolded the senators for threatening the justices. The senators' brief said the court is not well, and unless it heals itself they may have to resort to stacking the court with more justices who are amenable to the Democrats' ideology.

    What’s most fascinating about the controversy raging about Rep. Joaquin Castro’s tweeting out the names of donors to President Trump’s campaign is that Castro’s Republican detractors seem to be admitting to a dirty little secret. By complaining that he’s exposing those donors to public shaming, they’re effectively acknowledging that donating to Trump is shameful. Whoops. To bring you up to date, Castro, the twin brother of Julian Castro, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president , on Tuesday tweeted a list of the 44 donors in his hometown of San Antonio who have made the maximum donations to the...

    It became known as “The Bloody Morning Scout.” In 1755, Ephraim Williams Jr. led colonial forces and some 200 Mohawk allies into battle against French and Indian troops near Lake George, New York. But Williams marched into a deadly ambush. He was killed in the fight, and his troops were driven back, suffering tremendous losses. But history records that those under his command fought bravely and made “a very handsome retreat.” Today, the college that bears Williams’ name has been ambushed by its own students, and school officials have beaten a hasty and inglorious retreat. At Williams College in Massachusetts,...
