    “Who in time past were no people, but now are the people of God.” (I Peter 2:10) Paul wrote, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ; even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blemish before Him in love: having foreordained us unto adoption as sons through Jesus Christ unto himself…” (Eph. 1:3–5). The choosing took place before the creation for the obvious purpose of having an unblemished people in...

    WASHINGTON - The man removed from an Aeromexico flight bound for Mexico City Sunday was the subject of a terror warning issued for the U.S.-Mexico border last week, senior U.S. counterterrorism officials told NBC News on Monday. Homeland Security had asked law enforcement in Houston to be on the lookout for a suspected member of al-Shabaab, an al-Qaida ally based in Somalia, early last week, the sources said

    MONTREAL (AP) -- Canadian authorities identified Monday a man arrested on an Aeromexico flight from Paris to Mexico that was forced to divert to Montreal after U.S. authorities refused to let the plane use U.S. airspace. Abdirahman Ali Gaall was arrested Sunday at Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, said Robert Gervais, an Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada spokesman.

    Last week the Congressional Budget Office reported that it expects that the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Health and Human Services will spend up to an additional $200 billion over the next decade on administering Obamacare. That's in addition to the estimated $1 trillion that will be spent in 2014-2019 under the new healthcare law. Much of the money will go to hiring hundreds of thousands of bureaucrats to administer Obamacare over the next decade. But in the short term, the additional dollars will bankroll a two-pronged campaign to re-elect congressional Democrats. The Department of Health and Human...

    How the mass incarceration of black men hurts black women IMAGINE that the world consists of 20 men and 20 women, all of them heterosexual and in search of a mate. Since the numbers are even, everyone can find a partner. But what happens if you take away one man? You might not think this would make much difference. You would be wrong, argues Tim Harford, a British economist, in a book called “The Logic of Life”. With 20 women pursuing 19 men, one woman faces the prospect of spinsterhood. So she ups her game. Perhaps she dresses more seductively....

    A "missing link" between humans and their apelike ancestors has been discovered. The new species of hominid, the evolutionary branch of primates that includes humans, is to be revealed when the two-million-year-old skeleton of a child is unveiled this week. Scientists believe the almost-complete fossilised skeleton belonged to a previously-unknown type of early human ancestor that may have been a intermediate stage as ape-men evolved into the first species of advanced humans, Homo habilis.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The man accused in an incident of road rage over an Obama bumper sticker Thursday afternoon says he was only trying to get around another car that had stopped in front of him. Harry Weisiger told News 2, "He slammed on his brakes, and I hit him in the bumper when I tried to go around him." Weisiger, 70, is accused of hitting Mark Duren's car on Blair Boulevard around 4:30p.m. Friday. Duren claims Weisiger flipped him off and rammed into him with his SUV after noticing an Obama-Biden bumper sticker on his car. "He pointed at...

Millam sat at his kitchen table in Lowden, Iowa, with 14 Sharpie markers and a piece of foam board, working to condense a year of frustration into a 3-by-3-foot catchphrase. "Chains We Can Believe In," he wrote, drawing the communist hammer and sickle on the poster's top left corner. Then he grabbed an American flag, inserted batteries...

    President O’Bunga is being allowed to use a sleight-of-hand, and none of his detractors or opponents are calling him on it. I’m not referring to his touting the marvelous benefits of his Health Care reforms while glossing over the real-cash implications. Neither am I referring to the smoke-and-mirrors trash given to the CBO for them to use in determining the years-out financial implications. The president (if indeed he legally holds that office, which, with a British-Kenyan father it is impossible to do) claims, employing Josef Goebbels’ “kernel of truth” propaganda gambit, that the majority of Americans want many of the...

Holm is credited as the single driving force in achieving parity for military women and making them a viable part of the mainstream military. The Portland, Ore., native attained the rank of two-star general in 1973 after a career that began 31 years earlier in 1942 when she enlisted in the Army. General Holm entered Women's Army Air Corps in January 1943 where she received a commission as third...

    Not since the Salem witchcraft trials has there been a worse disgrace in the annals of Massachusetts jurisprudence: the railroading of an innocent Malden family during the legally sanctioned insanity known as the Fells Acres child-abuse case. Probably the apogee of the mass hysteria that gripped the U.S. beginning about 1995, the Amirault case continues to resonate – in part thanks to Martha Coakley’s inexplicable disinterest in seeing that justice was done. You can read up on the case here and here. Be sure to steel yourself. And then ask yourself: how could any rational human being have possibly believed...

But with nearly 300 passengers and crew on board you would expect that someone with a camera or better yet a camcorder would be filming or taking pictures. These days most everyone has a cell phone with camera or video capabilities. Well there was at least one man that we know of that was filming the entire event, witness’s on board mentioned it during the various interviews that...

There was a telling moment, during a discussion about executive compensation, when the three CEOs were asked if they were willing to work for a dollar a year. Mulally's polite reply, "I think I'm OK where I am," was a juicy piece of red meat for the national media,...

    As a convert to Christianity from the general cultural agnosticism, one of the most important questions that Christianity answers for me is "what is my place in the world?". The Bible shows me the direct lineage I have in faith to great men like Abraham. Understanding that you are a man - you have a vertical relationship with God, the creator of the universe - your rights and responsibilities come from Him, not from some bureaucrat's desk - is a life-changing understanding. Most of the Church has drifted into religious behavior (particularly in Europe, but also in America) and society...
