    Human Events ^ | 4/30/14
    On Wednesday morning, Glenn Beck interviewed former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson – one of the few mainstream media reporters to do actual, skeptical reporting on the Benghazi affair, and other Obama Administration scandals, which is a big reason why she’s a “former CBS News reporter” – about the White House spin-control emails uncovered by Judicial Watch.

    fox news ^ | staff
    The Obama administration faced a backlash from congressional Democrats on Friday following revelations that the National Security Agency broke privacy rules and overstepped its authority thousands of times since 2008. The details were reported late Thursday in The Washington Post, based on an audit and other secret documents provided by NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The report challenged claims by President Obama just last week that the NSA was not abusing its authority, and complicated his effort to reassure Americans and Congress that -- with a little more oversight and transparency -- the surveillance programs are nothing to be worried about....

    For the past week, Glenn Beck has been investigating a Saudi national once identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing. The story has taken a number of alarming twists and turns, but on his radio program Wednesday, Beck released some of the most interesting information yet. But first, here are a few background points on how the case developed: •A Saudi national originally identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing was set to be deported under section 212, 3B — “Security and related grounds” — “Terrorist activities” after the bombing •TheBlaze received...

    Not such a surprise for a Christian to find an association when we learn that the single most egregious - and only unforgivable sin - among Muhammad's followers, is committed when Muslim confesses that Jesus is the Son of God or even prays in Jesus' name. A sin worse than child rape or cold-blooded mass murder. (more on Islam's sin of "shirk")

    In case you haven’t heard, the world is supposed to end at midnight on December 21—this year.At least, that’s according to some popularized interpretations of what the Mayans said. But predictions of the end times are hardly a new or unusual thing. For Christians, prophecies of an imminent apocalypse are just about as old as the Church itself. Those predicting the end were an eclectic lot, with wild ideas and strange teachings. They include an antipope, a saint who rode the devil like a donkey, and cultish charismatics who dressed like harlots. Some were inspired by their false interpretations...

    Pope Benedict XVI says the final book of the Bible, which he referred to as the Book of the Apocalypse, provides Christians with a vision of a Church fully in communion with Jesus Christ in prayer. “The Apocalypse presents us with a community gathered in prayer, because it is in prayer that we gain an increasing awareness of Jesus’s presence with us and within us,” the Pope said during his Sept. 5 general audience at the Vatican. “The more and the better we pray with constancy and intensity, the more we are assimilated to him, and the more he enters...

    A Texas lake that turned blood-red this summer may not be a sign of the End Times, but probably is the end of a popular fishing and recreation spot. A drought has left the OC Fisher Reservoir in San Angelo State Park in West Texas almost entirely dry. The water that is left is stagnant, full of dead fish — and a deep, opaque red. The color has some apocalypse believers suggesting that OC Fisher is an early sign of the end of the world, but Texas Parks and Wildlife Inland Fisheries officials say the bloody look is the result...

One of these, concerning the Savior’s visit to the spirits of the dead while his body was in the tomb, he had received the previous day. It was written immediately following the close of the conference; on October 31, 1918, it was submitted to the counselors in the First Presidency, the Council of the...

That's not the intent, but that's how some will respond. Some people think that any time you argue back, you're Stifling Dissent. For them, merely discussing Ms. Sheehan's views is the rhetorical equivalent of sending her to Abu Ghraib.

"It's just like when he said he interviewed [former CIA director Bill] Casey when Casey was comatose," she says. Len Colodny, co-author of Silent Coup, about the "removal" of President Nixon, finds the identification of Mark Felt as Deep Throat to be rather remarkable: "A Deep Throat who...

    REVELATIONS - PART 6 A Bunch of Stuff Happens Last week,Nash T. Bassard broke out of prison.The Nutty Professor and the Flying Nun discovered a Ginsu Knife:but that's not all ! (At no extra cost,they received a Prophecy-written in Braille !) The Professor's Stepson, Hawk,got un-baptized,and un-confirmed,and was nearly hired by Newsweek. In this, the final episode,there was a great deal of meaningless activity ! There was a Miracle Baby,who was kept in a bassinet,along with some other babies,and whose role in this meshuggina mess was increasingly unclear. The Twins-in human and cat form-kept following the Professor and the Nun...

    It's a story as old as St. Augustine: You revel in sexual depravity and wine, finding pleasure and profit in all kinds of heresies frowned on by the Parents Television Council, until one day you discover everything has spiraled out of control and your ratings among the 18-to-49 demographic have plummeted. So you get religion. If it worked for Saul of Tarsus, Augustine of Hippo and George W. of Texas, then NBC must figure it'll work for a struggling TV network. Hence "Revelations," a biblically themed drama the network began airing in April. On Monday, when NBC previewed its fall...

    REVELATIONS - PART 5 (A Whole Lot of Shakin' Goin' On !!) Last week,Hawk-the Nutty Professor's stepson-was thrown off a cliff into an ice cold lake;then fished out,revived,and (Ready for this ?) UN-BAPTISED ! This week,poor Hawk is being prepared for....I dunno: his First Unholy Communion ?His kidnappers hand him a bunny rabbit,and tell him to kill it. He does...but you can almost see him thinking: "Next thing you know,they'll be asking me to walk through fire,or something equally juvenile. I've heard of fraternity initiations,but this one is the pits !" MEANWHILE: The Nutty Professor and the Flying Nun have...

    REVELATIONS - HOUR 4(It Only Felt Like 4 Hours of Dreck !) ( Our understanding of this story was bolstered by the sudden appearance of a semi-lucid plot summary in the TV guide.)The Professor's "son" was kidnapped by Satanists last week. This week,he is still a captive-BUT-he has been "demoted" to step-son. Hawk (That's actually his name !) is taken into the mountains of New Hampshire by his Satan-worshipping captors.His captors reveal to him the fact his mother is pregnant (Funny: I didn't even know she was off the pill ! Oh,well.) The captors tell Hawk he is free to...

    See Revelations. I guess it was stupid to think TV would get right even in the post-Passion era.

    When Part II ended last week,the Professor and the Nun were in Perilous Strains,Greece (population 837-excluding malevolent entities). The Professor lay unconscious,amid the still-falling rubble of an abandoned chapel. The Nun,rolling her eyes heavenward,was heard to cry out in anguish: "Oh,Lord ! Men are such babies !" BUT WAIT ! It's now Part III,and the Professor is tucked into a hospital bed,all comfy cozy,and the Nun is beaming with relief at his rapid recovery. The Dauntless Duo have not found the Miracle Baby yet... BUT WAIT ! The doctor casually tells them where the child's mother may be found.He...
