  • Was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A Saved Man As the Bible Teaches?

    IFB ^ | 1/18/16
    Was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Saved? This is a question that I have often asked myself. There is no doubt that he had the trappings of a “Christian”, but was he saved as the Word of Almighty God requires (Matt. 7:21-23, Rom. 10:2-4)? This is not a black or white issue but a sound biblical one, for in the END that is what life is ALL about. Yes, Dr. King had a great dream, vision and was fearless about bringing civil rights to America tragically the lawless white and black Left in this country has hijacked and corrupted his...

    'It's going to be the new little wave' For decades, if not centuries, the Amazon dwellers of southern Colombia didnt make too much of the cacay nut. They fed it to their livestock, used it to treat wounds and chopped down its trees for firewood. But then, a few years ago, the global jet-setting crowd found out what the yellow-ish oil from the protein-rich nut could do for their skin. And suddenly, the cacay (pronounced kahk-ai) has become a red-hot commodity, providing the key ingredient to anti-aging facial creams that can fetch $200 an ounce in beauty shops in Los...

    LONDON, April 7, 2015 ( – The British government must “make it compulsory that all schools’ sex education policies include a positive portrayal of same-sex relationships," the UK's National Union of Teachers (NUT) decided at its annual conference on Sunday.Christine Blower, General Secretary of the union, said that “NUT is at the forefront in the campaign for equality of opportunity and fair treatment for all students and staff, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation,” and that all political parties contending in the May election should adopt the union's motion."The NUT calls for all parties standing in the 2015 General...

Sarah Palin, his running mate in the 2008 presidential race, for "exciting" the GOP base in a way the senator couldn't achieve. Asked if it "bothered" him when people said his legacy was choosing Palin as his running mate in 2008, McCain said "no." "We were four points down when I chose her and three points up afterwards," he told the magazine. "She held her own and, some people said, won a debate with the vice president.

    Runway Kill Zone (blog) ^ | May 2, 2013 | 2branta
    The horrific crash of a 747-400 at Bagram (here) has yet to be fully investigated and claims are already being made that it was a stall caused by a loose cargo that caused tail of the aircraft to drop and the nose to rise depriving the wings of lift. Maybe. The Bagram 747 crash has many similarities to the even more horrific crash of AWACS flight Yukla-27, (here) which was caused by the aircraft striking at least two Canada Geese in the Runway Kill Zone (RKZ) as discussed on an earlier post on this blog (here).

    Squirrels can be awfully aerobatic when they want to, and, in the case of one squirrel, those aerobatics led to some delicious bird food. Realizing that he couldnt walk across a suspended bird feeder, this little crafty guy used the suspension line and his adorable paws to create a squirrel-based zipline. Either this squirrel really wanted to have some fun, or the bird feed in the suspended feeder is absolutely amazing. This video was uploaded to YouTube on December 28 and has racked up 3,882 views at the time of this post.

Canadian doctors at Queen's University were shocked when they found the image in an ultrasound from December 2009, the Toronto Star reported. It was very ghoulish, like a man screaming in pain.

What's rare about this find is that octopuses are almost all muscle and skin. When an octopus dies, it quickly decays and liquefies into the oozy slime from which evolutionary scientists claim life began. After just a few days, there's nothing left at...

    USA Election Polls ^ | September 12, 2007
    New Hampshire is the state we expect Ron Paul to shine, not Iowa. They are largely anti-war -- the last Iraq war poll had approval ratings as low as 14% suggesting a large majority of Republicans are disenfranchised with the war. Indpendents can vote for candidates in either party at the New Hampshire primary. So no pollster is going to be able to correctly quantify which candidate will get a boost but if the Independents are anti-war, I think it is safe to say that Ron Paul would be the candidate to benefit.

    Michael Savage calls it a third world invasion. I call it an immigration travesty. Whatever phrase you wish to attach to it, our southern borders are as open as Al Gore's wallet in a carbon credit retailer. Rudy Giuliani proclaimed New York City a sanctuary city as Mayor. McCain sponsored the immigration reform bill (dubbed Amnesty bill by immigration activists) that died quickly in Congress and Mitt Romney's position on immigration keeps changing, at least according to John McCain. Fox News took a jab at Romney during the debate several days ago, questioning the fact he had hired illegal immigrants...

    BENTONVILLE -- The father of a 17-year-old girl found his daughter's boyfriend hiding inside her bedroom closet Tuesday, beat him bloody with a pool stick, then left the room to fetch a gun. The daughter and boyfriend blocked the door with a dresser, so the father shot through the closed door, hitting the boyfriend in the back and paralyzing him, police said. George David Reed, 48, posted a $150,000 bond and was freed from jail Wednesday afternoon as Michael Austin Guzman, 19, underwent surgery to treat a bullet lodged in his spinal cord. Three of Guzman's vertebrae are fractured and...

    APN) ATLANTA "Run, Cynthia run!" chanted enthusiastic Green Party members and leaders at the Green Party National Meeting for 2007 in Reading, Pennsylvania, on July 15, 2007, according to video footage obtained by Atlanta Progressive News. "If not us, who? If not now, when?" asked one Green Party activist in attendance after a screening of the movie American Blackout. "It is us and the time is now," former US Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) replied. How would progressive Democrats in Congress respond to a McKinney-Nader 2008 ticket, another attendee asked. "That would have a potential of shaking up a whole...

    BEND, Ore. (AP) - Last weekend, Bend gas station owner Kent Couch settled down in his lawn chair with some drinks and snacks - and a parachute. Attached to the lawn chair were 105 balloons of various colors, each 4 feet around. Bundled together, the balloons rise three stories high. Couch carried a global positioning system device, a two-way radio, a digital camcorder and a cell phone. He also had instruments to measure his altitude and speed and about four plastic bags holding five gallons of water each to act as a ballast - he could turn a spigot, release...

    The United States and European Union should recognize the terrorist organization Hamas as a legitimate component of the Palestinian government, former President Jimmy Carter said at a human rights conference in Dublin, Ireland, June 19. Hamas, he said, had won free and fair elections in 2006, making the United States' refusal to aid the Palestinian faction and recognize its right to govern a "criminal" act. Carter said he believes both Western governments and Israel are favoring the rival Fatah party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, which now only governs the West Bank. Fatah also governed the Gaza Strip until...

    It's a fine line between quixotic and committed, and just where Ron Paul falls is an open question as the Texas congressman pursues the 2008 Republican presidential nomination.The case for quixotic: It's a unique conceit to run as an anti-Iraq-war candidate in a generally pro-war party; to vow to eliminate myriad federal agencies, including the CIA, the IRS and the Federal Reserve; and to oppose every act of the federal government not specifically approved in the Constitution (including niceties such as congressional gold medals for such people as Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks and Pope John Paul II)."I've advocated over the...

    Al Gore has given his strongest indication to date that he is contemplating a new run for the White House. The former vice-president, who received more votes nationwide than George W Bush in the 2000 election, pointedly refused to rule himself out and said that circumstances could emerge that would make him challenge Senator Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination. Mr Gore, who won an Oscar earlier this year for his climate change film An Inconvenient Truth, told the New York Times Magazine that he would be a better candidate than he was seven years ago. He said he would...
