  • Spain cracks King Ferdinand's 500-year-old secret code

    A 500-year-old secret code used in letters between one of Spain's most famous monarchs and a military commander has been cracked. Ferdinand of Aragon's letters have tantalised historians for centuries. Constructed using more than 200 special characters, they were deciphered by the country's intelligence agency. He was behind the final recapture - Reconquista - of Spain from the Moors in 1492 and Columbus's journeys to the Americas. The letters between Ferdinand and Gonzalo de Córdoba include instructions on strategy during military campaigns in Italy in the early 16th Century. They were written using secret code in case they fell into...

    “Look at all of these investigations now,” said King. “Look closely for Barack Obama’s fingerprints. I’ve just identified some that I think are fingerprints, and I think this trail leads to the Obama presidency, to Barack Obama himself, but it’s going to take some time if we get there, and I’m not certain that the evidence trail necessarily leads there. There’s an indication trail that says we need to take a look and find out. But if it’s not Barack Obama, then who is it? Well, it’s Loretta Lynch, for example, and James Comey, and McCabe, and that cast of...

    Watch closely for Barack Obama’s fingerprints,” said Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on Saturday, suggesting the recent alleged partisan weaponization of state surveillance powers could be connected to the 44th president. “[Democrats and their allies] will defend Barack Obama at all costs, and they’ll defend Hillary Clinton almost at all costs unless they have to sacrifice her to protect Barack Obama,” he added.
  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint Canute, King and Martyr (Gueranger)

    Red vestments   THE MAGI KINGS, as we have already observed, have been followed to the Crib of Jesus by Saintly Christian Monarchs; and it was just that these should be represented on the Church’s Calendar during the season which is consecrated to the Mystery of his Birth. The eleventh century is one of the most glorious of the Christian era, and gave, both to the Church and the various States of Europe, a great number of saintly Kings. Among them, Canute the Fourth of Denmark stands pre-eminent by reason of the aureol of his martyrdom. He had every...

  • In his own words – Billy Graham on Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Billy Graham Library ^ | 2015 | Billy Graham
    Civil rights were very much in the forefront in America during the 1960s and early 1970s. As the issue unfolded, I sometimes found myself under fire from both sides, extreme conservatives castigating me for doing too much and extreme liberals blaming me for not doing enough. In reality, both groups tended to stand aloof from our evangelistic Crusades, but those people who actively supported us understood very well our commitment to doing what we could through our evangelism to end the blight of racism. Early on, Dr. King and I spoke about his method of using non-violent demonstrations to bring...
  • "Can a Christian be a Communist?" - Sermon by Martin Luther King Jr.

    Martin Luther King Papers Project ^ | September 30, 1962 | Martin Luther King Jr.
    Now, let us begin by answering the question which our sermon topic raises: Can a Christian be a communist? I answer that question with an emphatic “no.” These two philosophies are diametrically opposed. The basic philosophy of Christianity is unalterably opposed to the basic philosophy of communism, and all of the dialectics of the logician cannot make them lie down together. They are contrary philosophies. Now, there are at least three reasons why I feel obligated as a Christian minister to talk to you about communism. The first reason grows out of the fact that communism is having widespread influence...

    MLK Institute ^ | November 13, 1958 | Martin Luther King Jr.
    In the coming period when travel to the Soviet Union is more usual, I believe the American people will expect committed leaders to get information by serious personal inquiry rather than to rely upon secondary sources. Among some of the more specific lines of inquiry I wish to pursue are those which would illuminate the reasons for the continued existence of religious conviction among millions of Soviet citizens, all of whom have been subjected to varying degrees of oppression and discouragement by powerful agencies of propaganda and anti-religious education. This tenacity to spiritual commitment is worthy of careful study for...

  • Bitcoin May Be King, But Ripple Dark Horse In Crypto Race

    Reuters ^ | 01/04/17
    Bitcoin was the star of the white-knuckle ride that cryptocurrencies offered in 2017 but lesser-known names, such as Ripple and Ethereum, are seen gaining prominence in 2018. While bitcoin jumped more than 1,200 percent last year, Ripple, created by the founder of bitcoin exchange Mt Gox, surged 35,000 percent in the same period. That means $100 invested in Ripple in January 2017 would have grown to about $35,000 at the start of this year. To be sure, bitcoin is still the biggest cryptocurrency by far - with market value exceeding $250 billion - and is expected to keep that mantle...

    We must never forget that at this time of year, we celebrate much more than a birthday. As the great Christian apologist C.S. Lewis put it, Christmas is the story of how “the rightful King has landed.” When Jesus stood before the Roman governor Pilate, just prior to going to His execution, Pilate asked Him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” After some discussion Pilate concluded to Jesus, “You are a king, then!” Jesus answered him, saying, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came...

    Republican Rep. Peter King called Steve Bannon a “disheveled drunk” who is “not the type of person” the Republicans need in politics during a Wednesday interview. On CNN, King responded to Doug Jones’ win in the Alabama Senate race by trashing Bannon, who campaigned heavily for Republican Roy Moore. “You know, I raised this not so much as a political issue but as a moral issue,” King explained. “This guy does not belong on the national stage–he looks like some disheveled drunk that wandered onto the political stage.”

    One of the ex-wives of late singer Eddie Fisher, Terry Richard, has come forward to accuse Larry King of groping her. Larry King was a long-time host on CNN. She claims he groped her at separate events. One occurred in 2005 and one occurred in 2006. Both happened at baseball awards dinners at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Terry is 63 years-old. Larry King is now 84 years-old. The first incident happened during a photo where she claims that King slid his hand down her backless dress and rested his fingers in between her butt cheeks. The second time (and...

    WASHINGTON -- The FBI prepared a secret 20-page analysis of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. containing explosive allegations about King's political ties and sexual activity, just a month before he was assassinated on April 4, 1968. One section of the document, which was among files related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy released on Friday, alleges that King was attracted to former member of the Communist Party in America. It notes that two previous aides were party members and eight others, who helped shape King's organization in its early stages, had communist affiliations. It's unclear whether...

    A newly declassified FBI dossier on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. alleges the civil rights leader had a possible lovechild and once bedded folk singer Joan Baez. The scandalous 20-page report - included in the latest document dump of files related to the JFK assassination - says that "a responsible Los Angeles individual" informed an agent that King had an affair with the wife of a prominent black dentist and may have fathered a baby girl. The individual, who was a relative of King’s paramour and had known the reverend since 1960, also accused him of having affairs with...

She is a living body, not a statue, and she can develop, though she can never change her nature. Hence, guided by the Holy Spirit of him who has promised to be with her not merely for a few centuries but unto...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Tennis icon Billie Jean King is not mincing words about the many white women who voted for Donald Trump, saying they "really don't like themselves." King, who led the fight for equal pay for women in tennis, also says she feels there is more misogyny now than when she defeated Bobby Riggs in the famous "Battle of the Sexes" match in 1973, the subject of the new movie starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. "I think there's a lot of misogyny - I think it's higher now than it was," King said in an interview Tuesday...

    The House GOP's staunchest opponent of illegal immigration said President Trump is now at risk of losing his base of supporters after supposedly cutting a deal to legalize more than 800,000 young people who arrived in the United States illegally as children. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said he stands by a Wednesday night tweet that proclaimed Trump's base "is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair," after he dined with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The two Democrats left the White House proclaiming they had reached a deal with Trump on...
