    Last Days Watchman ^ | Julio Severo
    Understanding Anti-Government Protests in Brazil By Julio Severo Economic crisis produces protests. In Brazil, at least, the motivation behind protests has been, as reported by Reuters, ďa sluggish economy, rising prices and corruption.Ē Sadly, the protests have not been against the abortion and homosexual agenda, whose government obsession to impose it should be a top priority in the concerns of a Christian people. In the early 1980s, Brazil had one of the biggest debts in the world and the commonest word in the Brazilian news was IMF (International Monetary Fund). Prices were skyrocketing. Inflation was the daily friend of...

    Bishop Edir Macedo and Homosexuality By Julio Severo The official website of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG) announced that its founder, Bishop Edir Macedo, has a stance different, in the homosexual issue, of the position of many evangelical leaders in Brazil.

    Guns have been around in one form or another for 800 years. Much has changed, but the firearms industry cannot be accused of being on the leading edge of technology. The 1911 handgun is still widely used and adored, as is the AR-15. The 1911 by its name alone tells you that it has passed the century mark, and the AR-15 is more than 50 years old. These are just two examples of the antiquated technology employed by most firearms industry manufacturers; but not all of them.

In each case there's been some sort of breathtaking disaster that *almost* happened or else a disaster was blamed on a drone.

    For over a year, the press has been minimizing its coverage of the Hillary Clinton email server issue, as Congress and the conservative media have been trying to get to the truth of the matter. The facts, as shared, are simple enough: As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton chose to violate the law and route all of her email traffic, both personal and work-related, through a private email server in her home in Chappaqua, New York. This kept the emails out of the security and record retention protocols of the federal government, and potentially added an additionally severe crime if...

Organizations with the words ¬ďtea party¬Ē or ¬ďpatriot¬Ē were singled out for harassment, such as requiring them to provide a list of donors, details about their internet postings on social networking websites, and information about their family members. When this was first reported by the media in May 2013, Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that had conducted these illegal activities, claimed that only low level employees...

    Dallas Ė McLennan Countyís criminal justice community is not trying to ďscheme againstĒ defendants in the Twin Peaks shooting, said a lawyer appointed to represent a judge recused in the case. A supplemental pleading to the 10th District Court of Appeals cites those remarks as evidence a gag order is unconstitutional and unworkable, according to the lawyer who filed the court papers. ďMr. (Matthew) Clendennen and his counsel are subject to the gag order entered by the Judge of the 54th District Court, Matt Johnson, and cannot publicly speak to this matter of grave public concern to our justice system....

    I thought it best to post a follow up to my previous post of yesterday. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3317547/posts I would first like to thank everyone for the prayers/thoughts/advice.

When I asked what she meant she...

    Hello all. Asking for more prayers for my father. Today he is at Hopkins to have triple-bypass surgery. This is harrowing enough, as is the thought of "recovery" with them cutting bones for it, but last night I just got a call from my aunt (his sister) and she stated that she and my uncle (brother), who is paralyzed, have a defect in their spines and that my dad should ensure surgeons are aware of this because of possible genetic similarity. I called my parents this morning to tell them (my aunt oddly did not mention it to them). But...
