    “Friend, Move Up Higher” (Luke 14:1-14)Suppose you’re invited to a banquet--a wedding banquet, for instance--so you get dressed up in your best clothes, and you get there, and you see some seats that are open at the various tables. You figure you’re a pretty important person, or you’d like to be seen as such, so you go up and take a seat up front, maybe even at the head table. But then some other guy comes in, and he doesn’t look all that impressive, and the host or the waiter comes over and tells you that you need to move...

The Prescott, Ariz.-based charity, Kayla’s Hands, is still waiting. At Hot Air veteran blogger Ed Morrissey writes:

    The Baltimore County Board of Education on Tuesday voted 6-5 against closing schools for two Muslim holidays when they fall on school days. According to the Baltimore Sun, the Muslim community had advocated for more than a decade to close Baltimore schools on the Islamic holidays of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. The vote followed a heated discussion among school board members as dozens of Muslims waited in the audience. The results of the vote prompted shouts of “Injustice!” by some in attendance, and the board had to call a five-minute recess before continuing. …

Now some people are gathering signatures for a petition telling Kohn to put her life where her agenda is. There's a Change.org petition encouraging Kohn to travel to a place that enforces Sharia law. This petition came after Kohn tweeted at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying progressive Muslims believe in Sharia:

I asked Freepers to pray for her recovery, and she grew new veins in her heart returning her heart to 80% capacity. Such adventitious growth isn't unheard of in heart medicine, but the doctors were floored by how much happened and how quickly. I thank Jesus and the Freepers who prayed for her recovery. So now I'm coming back to ask for a special prayer. My boss's wife is a very special woman. And although I can't say who he is, anyone...

Islam is not like Christianity or Judaism. Our faithful are bound to fight against unbelievers. Trump’s idea that the government can screen out those who are committed to this fight discriminates against one, and only one religion: Islam. As such it is unconstitutional under American law.” “It is also impermissible under sharia law,” Aswad...

    An "Islamist" is a Muslim who seeks to impose Islamic (Sharia) law worldwide, including in America. There are Muslims in America who do not want that to happen, yet few of them seek actively to prevent it. I refer here to those who do try, not as "moderate Muslims" -- an essentially badly used and hence meaningless term -- but as "Muslim reformers." On August 15th, Donald Trump delivered an address, generally well-received in conservative circles, on the dangers of Islamist immigration and how he intends to guard against those who intend to have Sharia law imposed and/or to engage...

If a candidate is vague, the media complain that he was “short on specifics.” But if he’s really specific, the media attack the specifics while the enemy takes copious notes and sends flowers in thanks for the heads up. It’s a wonder any of us are still alive...

Only once before, during the goose-stepping German occupation, has La Braderie ever been called off.

The worst example of such egregious prosecution was the railroading of an innocent city commissioner, Keith Wasserstrom.

We join with our Holy Father Pope Francis in affirming the inviolable dignity of all people and the Church’s important role in accompanying all those in need. In doing so, we also stand with Pope Francis in preserving the dignity and meaning of marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The two strands of the dignity of the person and the dignity of marriage and the family are interwoven. To pull apart one is to unravel the whole fabric. When a prominent...

    President Obama disputed claims that a planeload of $400 million in cash sent to Iran was a payment for the release of four Americans held hostage by the regime. He dismissed the simultaneous arrival of the plane carrying the cash with the departure of the plane carrying the hostages as "coincidental." Brian Stelter of CNN cited this coincidence as "proof GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's claim to have seen a video of the exchange is delusional. I have it on good authority that the video of the so-called ransom payment doesn't exist." As it turns out, the "good authority" cited...

    In Russia, 30-year-old Valery Spiridonov will be flying to the United States to meet the doctor who plans to perform the world’s first head transplant on him. During the operation, Italian surgeon, Dr. Sergio Canavero, intends to completely remove Spiridonov’s head and reattached it to a healthy body. Spiridonov suffers from a rare form of spinal muscular dystrophy called Werdnig-Hoffman disease. Now, Spiridonov says Canavero will be announcing the plans soon: Today, the 31-year-old is wheelchair reliant due to a muscle-wasting disease, announced his neurosurgeon would explain how the plan was progressing in September. Mr Spiridonov says he is ready...
  • Israel—Clinton And Trump Must Honour Bush-Congress Commitments

    Halting America's rapidly declining trustworthiness and diplomatic integrity demands Clinton and Trump so act. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have yet to signal their readiness to honour the commitments made by President Bush in his letter dated 14 April 2004 to Israel’s Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Bush’s letter—overwhelmingly endorsed by the House of Representatives 407-9 on 23 June 2004 and the Senate 95-3 the next day—supported Israel’s proposed unilateral disengagement from Gaza and four settlements in the West Bank. Bush further reassured Israel that in final status negotiations with the Palestinian Authority America would support Israel:

    Mr. Khan, I’m waiting for you to answer my charges or document when you publicly opposed the mistreatment of Muslim women. I will apologize if you have renounced your previous support for sharia law and the Muslim Brotherhood During the last few days, the media have been hyperventilating over the Trump-Khan controversy; but of course, they prefer dealing with that rather than Clinton’s compulsive lying! Furthermore, it seems to be acceptable for Hillary to call Patricia Smith (who lost her son in Benghazi because of Hillary’s incompetence) a liar after Smith’s speech at the RNC convention. The media is strangely...

    Should the majority of news consumers be kept in ignorance by a Khan Job designed by the DNC and implemented by the media? While the main stream media has been proven to be the campaign mouthpiece for the DNC…oh, wait. Forgive me. Have you forgotten about the #DNCLeaks from Julian Assange? The leaks that exposed the press for colluding with the DNC and the DNC rigging the primary election to secure the nomination for Hillary? Here are a some of the leaks that remain underreported/ignored by the media:

    It’s your souls not only your votes the demons of our day really want. Hold onto them for dear life. The words that best describe our times were uttered by Father Jacques Hamel as he lay dying on the altar of his church: “Go Away, Satan!” Go away, Satan and take the pack of squealing hyenas that are your demons who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Special: Vegas Says Goodbye To The Legendary Celine Dion: Satan is in every terrorist who slaughters every man, woman and child. It is Satan who covets caliphate and it is...

    West's foundational faith, and the basis of their moral law the Ten Commandments. Islam's moral law is Sharia. And ne'er the twain shall meet The media and effete powers-that-be have been twisting themselves into Halal pretzels Islamsplainin’, rationalizing how a given Muslim terrorist attack isn’t really “Islamic” or isn’t significant. These contortions can become quite ridiculous, such as suggesting that recent Allahu Akbar-shouting Munich shooter Ali Sonboly might somehow have had “right-wing” motives because, among his violent passions, was an interest in Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik. A more common (un)intellectual contortion is the minimizing tactic of claiming, as is...
