    Q: When we see Serena holding Nichole, it might also call to mind the picture of Melania Trump holding the El Paso baby who was orphaned in the recent shooting. A: I don’t blame you for seeing similarities there. Anyone who feels the same way about the presidency and everything that brings up, they’re going to look at that picture and think of Serena immediately. I totally get it.

    Sandra Airey, the Prophecy Lady, is back re-connecting current events to prophecy. In this article she ties a current crisis in Kentucky with Revelation chapter 19. She believes that biblical prophecy is building up before our very eyes. Sandra's husband was reading the latest article from the Courier Journal about Kentucky black vulture attacks. As Sandra says, "as soon as he started reading Goosebumps went all over me. It's like lightning went through me. I immediately remembered the biblical words about...

    Daniels opened up to Vulture -- in a new interview published Tuesday -- after he was asked about how Smollett alleged he'd been the victim of a hate crime, a claim Chicago cops later refuted, accusing the "Empire" actor of staging the entire episode to get a pay raise and to drum up publicity for his career. Smollett has maintained his innocence, strongly denying the accusations. . . . "I’m beyond embarrassed," the 59-year-old director and producer, who initially publicly supported Smollett, told the outlet. "I think that when it happened, I had a flash of me running from bullies....

    Well, well, well, it appears the hostless Oscars came to play. The 2019 ceremony just delivered what could be an Academy Awards first: An acceptance speech dedicated to none other than menstrual periods! Period. End of Sentence. just won the Oscar for Best Documentary Short. “I’m not crying because I’m on my period, or anything,” said director Rayka Zehtabchi. “I can’t believe a film about menstruation just won an Oscar,” she continued. Zehtabchi (who is 25!!) shared the stage with producer Melissa Berton and the rest of the Period team. Period tells the story of women in rural India fighting...

    Daily Mail (U.K.) ^ | January 26, 2019 | Maxine Shen
    Critics are raving about the new documentary, Apollo 11, which features an unearthed treasure trove of behind-the-scenes footage of the moon landing, following the movie's premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in Utah. The movie, deemed a 'masterful work of archival research' by Vulture, was created using a cache of 65mm, behind-the-scenes footage of the 1969 moon landing, and thousands of hours of vintage audio recordings of NASA employees talking about the mission. Unlike traditional documentaries, the 93-minute-long Apollo 11 is said to not include any voice-overs or cutaways to talking heads. Instead, director Todd Douglas Miller uses a...

    .Well, death threats directed at the students of Covington Catholic High School was inevitable as soon as that clip went viral. You’ve all seen it. Student Nick Sandmann wearing his Make America Great Again hat standing next to Nathan Phillips, a Native American man, who was banging a drum at the Lincoln Memorial in what the liberal media called a racist hounding of a person of color. The same media said “build the wall” chants were spewed during the incident. All of this was false. Obscenities were hurled at the students from a group of Black Hebrew Israelites, an alleged...

    It's been a bad week for the mainstream press, first with the Michael Cohen hoax by BuzzFeed and now with the Covington Catholic fake news, where journalists claimed that Catholic students mocked a Native American. That turned out to be untrue. It's safe to say that the spectacle has ruined everyone's last remaining shred of hope that the media would stop being the Enemy of the People. Clearly, that is not going to happen. The bright spot on the horizon is that The Wrap is reporting that at least one of these terrible "journalists" has been fired: Digital company INE...

    Twitter has suspended an account that helped a widely publicized encounter between Catholic high school school students and a Native American man go viral. CNN Business reported on Monday that Twitter took the step after receiving questions from the news network about the account. The account, @2020fight, posted a minute-long video of the interaction on Friday night with the caption, "this MAGA loser gleefully bothering a Native American protester at the Indigenous Peoples March." According to a cached version of the video seen by CNN, the post garnered at least 2.5 million views and at least 14,400 retweets. The network...

    Penn Jillette is claiming that President Donald Trump made “racially insensitive” remarks during his time on Celebrity Apprentice, which were captured on tapes that still exist. Jillette, a professional magician who appeared on season 12 of the NBC reality series, confirmed to Vulture in a new interview that series creator Mark Burnett has tapes of Trump making the controversial statements. Burnett did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Trump “would say racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable. I don’t think he ever said anything in that room like ‘African-Americans are inferior’ or anything about rape or grabbing women,...

Jillette, who was a contestant on the show in 2013, told Vulture in an interview published Tuesday that Trump would "ramble" during tapings of his former reality TV show... Jillette told Vulture that he “can emotionally tell you things that happened racially, sexually, and that showed stupidity and lack of compassion when I was...

    It’s always something to hear a over-privileged millennial actress complain about how hard it is to live in America. But the politically charged actress Shailene Woodley didn’t mince her words in an interview with New York Magazine’s Vulture. In the standard attempt to promote her new film to a woke audience (after all, progressives are the ones Hollywood wants to entertain), she talked about her experience getting arrested for protesting the Dakota Pipeline, her year spent on probation, and her politics. Woodley told interviewer Amy Nicholson, “It’s tricky to live in America right now.” Oh please. Is that $1.3 million...

    A wildfire sparked by a turkey vulture that caught fire after shorting out two power lines according to a witness burned parts of an RV and two properties in Martinez Tuesday morning, causing an estimated $80,000 in damage, a fire official said. Firefighters responded at 10:42 a.m. to the vegetation fire in the 800 block of Howe Road, Contra Costa County Fire Protection District Fire Inspector Steve Aubert said. The witness told KPIX 5’s Don Ford that he saw the large turkey vulture short out between two power lines. When the bird began to burn, it started the brush fire....

    The Obama administration will let no political opportunity go to waste. Tomorrow, the President will unveil his gun control agenda surrounded by children who wrote him letters in the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy. Not surprisingly, children from around the country have been frightened by the mass murder at Sandy Hook elementary. They have been influenced by the non-stop media coverage of the horrible incident and are worried about safety in their own schools.

    EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK, Fla., - Park rangers in the Florida Everglades are offering visitors loaner bungee cords and tarps to protect their cars from marauding vultures. The big black birds apparently have a taste for automotive rubber, including window seals and wiper blades, and have been known to strip a parked car clean in a matter of hours. "Exactly why they do it or when they do it or why they choose one vehicle over another, any reasons for that are pretty much unknown," Skip Snow, a park biologist, told The Miami Herald. Black vultures fly into the Everglades every...

    Bernie Madoff is in jail for life for using other people’s money under false pretenses in a Ponzi scheme that fooled some of America’s most sophisticated investors. This is an example of fraud, not capitalism. Raj Rajaratnam is in jail for 11 years for insider trading of securities of Galleon Group, the hedge fund he founded. This is an example of violating a law passed by Congress restricting capitalism. If Raj had been a member of Congress, which exempted itself from that insider trading law, he would not be in jail today. Steve Jobs will be remembered forever as the...

    Fort Mill, S.C. --— Rick Perry, the lone Republican campaigning for president Tuesday in South Carolina, likened Mitt Romney to a greedy Wall Street “vulture” who was indifferent to the plight of workers who lost their jobs in deals that enriched his investment firm. Seeking an early edge in South Carolina’s Jan. 21 primary .. the Texas governor also ridiculed Rick Santorum’s congressional spending record. Perry started slashing away at Romney’s record as chief executive at Bain Capital on Monday, but was more caustic Tuesday ..

    In light of Elizabeth Taylor’s passing on, I have noticed the world’s secular media (1 John 2:15-17) praising Miss Taylor as a cultural “do as thou wilt” trend setter, one who showed NO scruples when it came to sound Judeo/ Christian values and morality; especially to the God ordained institute of marriage (Matt. 19:4-6, 1 Cor. 9:6, Heb. 13:4). Such secular and godless traits of these individuals are greatly applauded and encouraged by the world to its inhabitants (Rom. 1:32, 1 John 2:15-17). To the secular world (1 John 2:15-17), Miss. Taylor’s philanthropy and endless work in AIDS research and...

    A vulture tagged by scientists at Tel Aviv University has strayed into Saudi Arabian territory, where it was promptly arrested on suspicion of being a Mossad spy, Israeli and Saudi media reported Tuesday. The bird was found in a rural area of the country wearing a transmitter and a leg bracelet bearing the words 'Tel Aviv University', according to the reports, which surfaced first in the Israeli daily Ma'ariv. Although these tags indicate that the bird was part of a long-term research project into migration patters, residents and local reporters told Saudi Arabia's Al-Weeam newspaper that the matter seemed to...
