  • STEPHEN'S TIME TO SHINE -- Acts 6-8

    Many Roman emperors tried to destroy Christianity. One of them was Diocletian and he was particularly violent in his hatred of the Bible and Christianity. He killed so many Christians with such outrageous cruelties and destroyed so many Bibles that many Christians went underground and hid themselves from the wrath. When it seemed to Diocletian that he had made an end of them, he had a medal coined with this motto on it: “The Christian religion is destroyed, and the worship of the Roman gods are restored.” Boy, he knows different now, don’t he? He knows different now.

After Nazarius and Celsus, and all the martyrs whom the victory of Christ has shown to be partakers of his gory according to the divine promise, the standard-bearer of the white-robed army himself rises glorious from his tomb...

  • 'God Bless America' a 'warmongering song,' Ithaca professor says

    “God Bless America” is a “warmongering song” that should not be played at sporting events, according to an Ithaca College professor. “In the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, the expressions of hyper-patriotism took hold,” Professor Stephen Mosher wrote in an op-ed for The Ithacan, “Irving Berlin’s warmongering song ‘God Bless America’ became our second, unofficial national anthem at the ballpark.” That song, “God Bless America,” was sung by concertgoers in Las Vegas on Sunday night, led by country duo Big & Rich, just an hour before a shooter opened fire on them.... He added: “Maybe ‘America the Beautiful’ would be...

  • Professor Stephen Cohen: Not One Piece of Factual Evidence That Russia 'Hacked the Election

    04/13/2017 7:51:09 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 18 replies
    Stephen F. Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies at New York University and Princeton, spoke Thursday evening with Fox News' Tucker Carlson about the latest shoes to drop in the investigations into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia. The Wall Street Journal reported late Thursday that Michael Flynn, President Trump's former national security advisor, has told the FBI and congressional investigators that he is willing to be interviewed in exchange for a grant of immunity from prosecution -- not a particularly good sign for the Trump White House. Cohen, one of the country's foremost experts on Russia, has been...

    The media is promoting violence against senior Trump advisor Stephen Miller following his interviews last Sunday in which he talked about vote fraud influencing the presidential election. CBS Television show The Late Show with Stephen Colbert featured a segment that showed Miller about to have his head bashed in with a baseball bat, as a mental patient about to be given electro-shock therapy and with his severed head on a pike.

    CHARLESTON, S.C. – Former Republican South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford revived a scandal-scarred political career by winning back his old congressional seat Tuesday in a district that hasn't elected a Democrat in three decades. The comeback was complete when he defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. With 87 percent of the precincts reporting, Sanford had 54 percent of the vote. Sanford, who turns 53 later this month, has never lost a race in three runs for Congress and two for governor. And he said before the votes were counted Tuesday that if he lost...

    Can you imagine a liberal comedian demeaning the appearance of a physically handicapped, Pulitzer Prize-winning, liberal syndicated columnist? On Thursday, Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert called Charles Krauthammer "Count Chocula" (video follows with commentary): (Snip) And was the comedian aware that Krauthammer became a paraplegic as a result of a car accident while he was attending Harvard Medical School? If Colbert knew this, would he still ridicule Krauthammer's appearance? Assuming the answer is "Yes," now imagine Krauthammer was a liberal paraplegic who won the Pulitzer Prize.

    Last night, I interviewed the man at the center of a new swirling controversy. Stephen Lerner, a veteran union organizer, wants collective bargaining for homeowners that owe money to the big banks. And this week, he was caught on tape talking about a "mortgage strike" against the big banks. He suggested that a large number of homeowners stop paying their mortgage until the banks agree to negotiate and modify loans. Glenn Beck pounced on the recording. And so did Congress. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Republican Congressman from Utah, sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder saying that Lerner's threats...

    Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert on Wednesday defended Helen Thomas's anti-Semitic remarks by attacking conservative talk radio hosts Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, John Gibson, and Michael Savage. Addressing the comments that led Thomas to resign her position with the Hearst News Service, Colbert said, "Jesus Christ on a matzo cracker, Helen. What were you thinking?" He continued, "You don't just blurt out racially charged comments on camera." As pictures of the four conservative talkers appeared on the screen, Colbert quipped, "You do it on your radio show" (video follows with commentary):

    HAWAII DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH ACTIVELY COVERING FOR OBAMA’S CHANGED VITAL RECORD by Nellie Esquire (Jan. 10, 2010) — People are asking how so many terrorist red flags could be overlooked by so many. The answer is, that they have been overlooked the same way these “birther” red flags were not only overlooked, but ridiculed. Some examples of these “Birther” red flags can be culled from the public behavior of the Hawaii Department of Health and the Hawaii Office for Information Practices, in response to public inquiry regarding Obama’s vital records, which are an essential documentary issue in establishing his citizenship...
