    showing another proof that Bible passages were based on actual historical events Solid evidence has once again been unearthed proving that passages from the Bible were based on actual historical events. A team of archaeologists has discovered a palatial building in Gezer, Israel, which the discoverers named "Solomon's Palace," according to New Historian. The spectacular building was constructed over 3,000 years ago, in the tenth century BCE, according to the archaeologists. Although they could not tell yet which king, if any, lived in the palace, they believe it was likely built during the reign of King Solomon. Their conjecture was...

    If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all RINOs doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And your hair don’t look too good, nor talk too wise: If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Hillary and Paul Ryan And...

    Yesterday Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, appeared to attempt to act like a leader by throwing cold water on the government shutdown plan, which many Republicans have endorsed as a way to stop the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. “The problem is the bill that would shut down the government wouldn’t shut down Obamacare,” Mr. McConnell told a group of healthcare workers in southern Kentucky. “Most of it is permanent law and not affected by that. It also wouldn’t stop the taxes. Taxes that are going in on medical devices, taxes that are going in on health insurance...

    The tale of private investment bank Northern Trust Corporation of Chicago, criticized because it sponsored a golf tournament, with proceeds to charity, followed by a private performance starring such popular acts as Earth, Wind and Fire and Sheryl Crow for its top clients and employees, should serve as a warning to other companies--and even private individuals--on the dangers of accepting government money. Learning its lesson, Northern, which received $1.5 billion in government bailout funds, plans to repay the government "as quickly as prudently possible" while promising future standard practice corporate entertainment will be "appropriate, given the current environment." Leading the...

    On Thursday’s morning shows, all three networks seemed to take delight in showing "MC Rove" ham it up for Wednesday night’s Radio & Television Correspondents Association dinner. None, however, showed the video footage of the distinguished Brian Williams, anchor of the "NBC Nightly News," burping the "Battle Hymn of the Republic." The Los Angeles Times, one media outlet that did report the event, covered it this way: For their first act, [comedians Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood] recruited NBC anchor Williams and Cheryl Gould, senior vice president of NBC News, to deliver the sound effects for a nonsensical skit about...

    LOS ANGELES – Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND, the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny, today issued the following statement regarding President George W. Bush’s comments made during a joint press conference with Prime Minister Tony Blair in which the President said he regretted using “tough talk” when discussing ways to confront America’s enemies in the war on terror: “The President’s tough and uncompromising talk after 3,000 plus Americans were brutally murdered was right on. To backpedal on the eve of Memorial Day with boots on the ground is heartbreaking. “Who’s advising the President to avoid...

    British banks are banning piggy banks because they may offend some Muslims. Halifax and NatWest banks have led the move to scrap the time-honoured symbol of saving from being given to children or used in their advertising, the Daily Express/Daily Star group reports here. Muslims do not eat pork, as Islamic culture deems the pig to be an impure animal. Salim Mulla, secretary of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, backed the bank move. "This is a sensitive issue and I think the banks are simply being courteous to their customers," he said. However, the move brought accusations of political correctness...

Most of the money -- described by NPR as "the largest monetary gift ever received by an American cultural institution" -- will go toward the NPR Endowment Fund for Excellence,...
