  • Is Demon Possession Real?

    11/10/2017 7:35:18 AM PST · by pinochet · 146 replies
    Many people have tried to explain away the mass shootings in Texas and Las Vegas as mental illness. I can assure you that 99.9 percent of mentally ill people could never kill anyone. People are ruling out a spiritual component to these shootings. The mass shooters reflect the classic behavior one should expect of armed people who are demon-possessed. I invite Freepers who are mature Christians, and who have developed the ability to do spiritual discernment, to comment on this issue. Then there is the issue of Judge Roy Moore of Alabama, the most committed Christian to be a Senate...
  • Anyone think the Roy Moore frenzy is media's attempt to distract from Trump's success in Asia?

    Trump is having a FABULOUSLY successful trip overseas, and the media is LOATHE to report it...these UNPROVEN and, ultimately, UNPROVABLE allegations against Roy Moore are a great distraction from covering PROVABLE successes in the realm of foreign policy. Just a question, but it sure seems to me the media latched on to the shooting in Texas, but that story fizzled when it was revealed Obama's Air Force failed to report the guy. What do you all think?

    “While there’s no one solution to the epidemic of gun violence, it’s past time for Congress to take common sense steps to strengthen critical safeguards and stem the tide of rising gun violence plaguing our communities.”(Washington, D.C.) – Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) joined a number of her colleagues today to introduce the Assault Weapons Ban of 2017, a bill to ban the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.“From last month’s horrific scene on the Las Vegas strip to the heart-wrenching stories coming out of Sutherland Springs, TX, too often we’ve had to reach...
  • 64 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana, 51 percent of Republicans

    10/25/2017 1:14:49 PM PDT · by JP1201 · 106 replies
    A new Gallup poll shows growing support for marijuana legalization, with 64 percent of Americans now in favor of the measure. The number is the highest level of support in nearly half a century of surveying adults on the issue, according to Gallup. Support has steadily increased in recent years, with the latest figure up 4 percentage points over last year and up 14 points from 2011. The poll also showed a majority of Republicans favoring legalization for the first time, with 51 percent expressing support. That number is up 9 percentage points from last year, according to Gallup.

    Dear President Trump, Once again it is apparent that the establishment elites have no intention to pass any part of your agenda. Why should they wish to? They are living quite well in DC on their lobbyist moola and government perks. It is time sir you use your bully pulpit to call them out but not in a way that is insulting, rather, in a way that simply exposes them. I propose that you in the most vigorous way possible challenge, no demand, that Mr. McConnell bring a bill to the floor of the Senate and have it voted on,...
  • Will ABC and CNN Apologize to ‘Conspiracy-Loving’ Mark Levin on Trump-Team Surveillance?

    CNN dropped a bombshell on Monday night that “US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and after the election...The government snooping continued into early this year, including a period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.” This means there are some major-media reporters who should apologize to conservatives who asked questions about Trump-team surveillance. In March, ABC’s Brian Ross repeatedly denounced Mark Levin as a “conspiracy-loving talk show host” (a la Alex Jones) over three days of newscasts.

    Leftist slant but informative. We had our opportunities with Ho Chi Min but it would have meant quitting on the French. Russian/Chinese expansion as well as the development of nuclear weapons may have handcuffed us. Dividing the country was was made to look like Korea redux-probably true. A complete misunderstanding of what's going on in other cultures. 57k lost lives later we haven't learned our lesson in the mid-east. Ken Burns gave us the 'well intended' bone.

  • Biblical prophecy claims the world will end on Sept. 23, Christian numerologists claim

    A Christian numerologist claims that the world will end next Saturday when a planet will, supposedly, collide with Earth. According to Christian numerologist David Meade, verses in Luke 21:25 to 26 are the sign that recent events, such as the recent solar eclipse and Hurricane Harvey, are signs of the apocalypse. The verses read: “25: There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies...
  • Should soccer exist in the United States?

    Dear John: When will the US understand that the universal sport of soccer cannot exist in our country? It is a poor man’s sport where no equipment is needed, only a ball and a field in which to kick it. It cannot survive in the US for three reasons: Boring, boring, boring. The most excitement is among the spectators who burn or stampede the stadiums or kill the goalie or referee — which is where the term “fan” was derived: “Fanatic.”

  • EXCLUSIVE: Kellyanne Conway May Be The Next Communications Director

    There is chatter within the White House that Kellyanne Conway is being looked at as the next communications director, a source within the White House told The Daily Caller. Anthony Scaramucci was ousted Monday as communications director following a week of publicly feuding with former chief of staff Reince Priebus. Scaramucci called Priebus a “paranoid schizophrenic” in an interview President Trump viewed as inappropriate, according to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

    Card. Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, recently had an article in the French magazine La Nef; in it, he discusses among other things the mutual enrichment of the two Forms of the Roman Rite which Pope Benedict proposed in the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum. The text has not yet been made available on their website, but someone provided Fr Zuhlsdorf with an English translation, which he reads (with an introduction) in a podcast posted here. Yesterday, the Catholic Herald published a commentary on the La Nef article by Fr Raymond de Souza, “Cardinal Sarah’s challenge to...

    Screen Rant ^ | June 20, 2017 | Andy L. Kubai
    Star Trek has remained a ship somewhat adrift, especially since the prequel series Star Trek: Enterprise was canceled before its fifth season. When J.J. Abrams brought his kinetic, alternative timeline to life in 2009, the long-running saga received a shot in the arm. Since then, the franchise, now split between Paramount (film) and CBS (small screen), continues to seek out for the right vehicle to truly set the stars ablaze in the 21st century. Star Trek Into Darkness and Beyond were both exciting and generally well-received entries but fell victim to diminishing returns at the box office when Beyond’s meager...
  • Puerto Rico deserves its star: Alaskans should join...in supporting statehood

    It has been nearly 58 years since the last star was added to the U.S. flag when Hawaii joined the union in August 1959. In a referendum 10 days ago, Puerto Rico residents voted to become the next. The matter isn’t up to residents alone, of course — Congress and the president would have to sign off on the admission of a new state, and there are many political hurdles that stand in between America’s closest possession and statehood. But those obstacles existed for Alaska, too, and we had allies who helped us gain entry to the U.S. As Puerto...

    WASHINGTON - Exxon Mobil Corp. and other large oil companies are backing a carbon tax proposal put forward earlier this year by a group of former Republican leaders including James A. Baker III, the former secretary of state and a Houston attorney. The Climate Leadership Coalition, a group that includes Baker, former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, and former Secretary of State George Shultz, announced a list of "founding members" Tuesday that includes Exxon Mobil, BP, Shell, Total, General Motors and Johnson & Johnson. "We support @TheCLCouncil as a founding member and are working to support its policy development process," Exxon...

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | 06/19/17 | Michael O'Connell
    Three episodes in, Megyn Kelly's Sunday Night is suffering from no shortage of attention. The former Fox News personality's transition to NBC host got especially bumpy this past week with the show's heavily-dissected decision to interview controversial radio host and Infowars entrepreneur Alex Jones. The episode finally aired Sunday, averaging 3.5 million viewers, a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49 and a 0.7 rating among adults 25-54. By all measures, that's virtually the same showing Kelly got with final adjustments during week two — again trailing a 60 Minutes repeat. Audio of the interview leaked prior to the telecast when Jones...

    The 11-month-old investigation into whether President Trump or members of his campaign colluded with Russians has still not turned up any evidence that’s strong enough to put before a jury. That’s according to California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, which is overseeing one of the parallel investigations into whether members of the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin to influence the outcome of the election. “I’m not prepared to say that there’s proof you could take to a jury,” Schiff told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz on Sunday when asked if he’s seen proof of...
