  • ISIS Terrorist Released in Plea Deal Months Ago in Illinois

    The Paris terrorist attacks bring to mind the frightening case of an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) operative arrested in Chicago last fall and released earlier this year to serve probation in Illinois for a state crime that secretly drew federal intervention. His name is Emad Karakrah, the ringleader of a sophisticated narco-terror operation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) facilitated his release from Cook County Jail in January. Judicial Watch uncovered Karakrah's terrorism record and has reported extensively on his extremist activities, including a 2009 plot to bomb talk-show host Oprah Winfrey's Chicago studios and the...

My!

  • “Jihad” is “misunderstood” spiritual struggle, Muslim scholar tells Oprah

    11/08/2015 8:11:33 PM PST · by Impala64ssa · 40 replies
    Oprah doing a show on jihad could do enormous good. Instead, she did a show with an Islamic scholar who laughably claimed that jihad is merely a spiritual struggle. Oprah’s single “teachable moment” devastated the cause of truth and freedom. It is breathtaking. Little in Islamic text and teachings speak to a “spiritual struggle.” It’s all holy war. And that is exactly why hundreds of millions are waging war in the cause of jihad. Oprah has taken a page from the media, academia and political elites who have all but declared war on the truth and scrubbed motive and ideology...

I was a great observer of life, and I grew up believing that I was indeed for sure, God's child, she said.

    It seems that Rob Bell and Oprah Winfrey are pretty good friends these days. Bell has appeared on Oprahs show numerous times, and just recently appeared, along with his wife Kristen, on her Super Soul Sunday episode over Valentines Day weekend. Their appearance was designed to promote their new book, The ZimZum of Love: A New Way of Understanding Marriage (HarperOne: 2014). Now, I have to confess that I have no idea what the main title means. But, the subtitle is pretty bold. Given that marriage dates back to the very creation of mankind in Genesis, do we really need...

    Al Sharpton and Oprah Winfrey are scared witless that the Black Lives Matter mobilization will become a sustained, independent political movement one that challenges both the rich White rulers and their junior partners in the Black Misleadership Class. The viciousness of Winfreys and Sharptons assaults on the new crop of organizers is a good barometer of the nascent movements effectiveness, to date, in discomforting the comfortable. If one thing is clear to African-American youth, it is that so-called Black leadership has been complicit in the catastrophe that has engulfed their communities that the leaders are part of the...

Slowly but surely, though, the crowd was drawn in by the Scheherazade skills of the Selma director, Ava DuVernay. The horrific scene...

I didn't like that Barbara imposed a three-year sex ban on Vernon, 81, after obtaining a video of him having sex with a crack addicted prostitute in his Nashville barbershop

    Its going to be interesting to see how people react to the movie especially considering the fact that Winfrey is most likely playing the role of God. The Shack goes to the heart of universal reconciliation, Christian universalism. It created shock waves among many Christians not only for its theology but also for its portrayal of the Trinity as an elderly black woman, an Asian woman and a carpenter. Universalism is the belief that a God of love and goodness never would allow people to be separated from him forever, which means everyone ends up in heaven.

The movie is called Hundred Foot Journey and is based on a novel. The title refers to an uptight, cranky white French women discovering the Indians across the street...
