  • Branch Davidian tragedy sparked government suspicion that still haunts us 25 years later

    WACO — The fire rose above the Texas prairie like a portent, an inferno consuming David Koresh and more than 70 of his followers in the Branch Davidian compound. Koresh's personal apocalypse was televised live worldwide just after noon on April 19, 1993. Questions about what went wrong began to mount before the ashes were cool. How could a 33-year-old ninth-grade dropout convince so many people that he was the Lamb and God had willed this terrible end - nurses and teachers, a postman and a Harvard-educated lawyer, Australians and Brits, New Zealanders and an Argentinian-born Israeli Jew? Above all,...

    When the sun rose on April 19, 1993, it marked the 51st day of a standoff between dozens of federal agents and members of an apocalyptic religious sect called the Branch Davidians, who had barricaded themselves in their compound outside Waco, Texas.

  • Is Donald Trump a Modern-Day Cyrus ?

    Ever since Donald Trump began to surge as a candidate last year, Christians have been pointing to the book of Isaiah and comparing Trump with the ancient Persian King Cyrus. Some have even claimed that God has revealed to them that He will use Trump for the good of America just as He used Cyrus for the good of the Jewish people, even though Cyrus was a "pagan" king. Could this be true? Let's first look at the biblical and ancient Near Eastern evidence. Cyrus (whose name was pronounced "ko-resh" in Hebrew) became king of Persia in 559 B.C. and...

    Maybe Donald Trump isn't invincible, after all. On Saturday, Ted Cruz nuked Trump from orbit in Kansas, pantsed him in Maine, and almost scored coups in the other two states, Kentucky and Louisiana, where he fell short of Trump by just two delegates in the first case and one in the second. Overall, the Texas senator trails Trump in the delegate race by a very manageable 378-295. There's an awfully long way to go to get to the 1,237 needed for the nomination. It's enough to launch a thousand think pieces on what's become of the GOP's once-unstoppable frontrunner. But...
  • Finding Religion and God in the Presidential Caucuses and Party Primaries

    WASHINGTON -- The presidential candidates have been talking about God lately, which is understandable because most of them haven't a prayer of being elected. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who was raised in the Jewish faith and rarely discusses his religious views, was compelled to talk about it this week as he campaigned in Iowa -- a state heavily populated by evangelical voters who will pick the winner of next week's nominating caucuses. The Vermont Democrat, who went to Hebrew school in his youth and was bar-mitzvahed, is drawing big crowds in the state, as he does everywhere he goes. But he's...

    It’s a bromance with a payoff—the senator has been developing the billionaire’s support and their aides are even discussing joint events, but if Trump drops out, Cruz aims to clean up.Donald Trump and Ted Cruz’s mutual admiration is turning into a conservative bromance—one that could have a huge strategic payoff for the Texas senator’s presidential campaign. Behind the scenes, Cruz has been methodologically developing Trump’s support. The two candidates have met in person at least five times and talk by phone occasionally. And in the future, they may even hold events together. The two campaigns privately discussed a possible joint...
  • God using Donald Trump to wake up America, says Christian faith speaker

    08/09/2015 9:46:58 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 20 replies ^ | Andre Mitchell
    For a Christian faith speaker, however, Trump is serving as an instrument of God and a modern "prophetic voice" to wake up America, which some prominent pastors have described as having strayed from Christian values. In an editorial published on Charisma News, Os Hillman, president of Marketplace Leaders, said Trump was sent by God "to uncover the veil of the current political leadership and culture in America." Hillman, who is an internationally recognised speaker on the subject of faith at work, said Trump is exposing the morally corrupt ways of America's current leaders. "Trump is articulating what we all felt...

    Ever since Sir Robert Anderson published his seminal work, The Coming Prince at the turn of the 20th century, prophecy watchers have been trying to figure out who he is. Sir Robert took his title from Daniel 9:26’s identification of the antichrist as a prince of the Roman Empire: “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.” Of...

    The National Enquirer, the same magazine that broke the news on John Edwards’ love child, reports there is a $500 million plot out there to destroy Hillary Clinton. Author Marinka Peschmann claims Hillary Clinton of ordering the government’s attack on David Koresh’s compound in Waco, Texas. The National Enquirer reported: And in a national inter­view on the FOX News Channel, former Demo­cratic volunteer Kathleen Willey – who has insinu­ated the Clintons were involved in the mys­terious deaths of her husband, Ed, and depu­ty White House counsel Vince Foster – accused Hillary of “ruining” and “terrorizing” people.

    WACO, Texas (AP) -- Some who survived the fiery end to the 51-day standoff at the Branch Davidians' Central Texas compound are to gather for a memorial service on the 20th anniversary of the fire. Survivors and others who see the events as an unwarranted government intrusion into personal and religious freedoms are to attend the service Friday at a Waco museum. Federal agents raided the compound Feb. 28, 1993, trying to arrest sect leader David Koresh for stockpiling illegal weapons. But the group had been tipped off about the raid and a shootout ensued. Four agents and six Davidians...

    DAVID KORESH: MILLENNIAL VIOLENCE David Koresh and the Waco Incident: Both Sides Prepare By Katherine Ramsland David Koresh, 1987 A number of people, both witnesses and historians, have tried to accurately document the facts of what happened on February 28th, 1993 in Waco, Texas in the clash between law enforcement and a religious group known as the Branch Davidians. No one seems able to write about those events in an unbiased manner, since it seems that the whole thing was preventable. Even the academics appear to have a cause, so it's difficult at times to piece together what actually happened...

    Dr. Vaknin has written extensively about narcissism. Dr. Vaknin States "I must confess I was impressed by Sen.Barack Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident - a wholesome presidential package. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling. His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama's speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American...
