    Union leaders in California continued a protest even after neighbors and police informed them they were at the wrong house because their target, Rep. Steve Knight (R., Calif.), had moved away months ago. The group of over 50 protestors, who arrived in Service Employees International Union (SEIU) vans, carried a fake coffin to the house to send a message that Knight's votes in Congress were "killing" them, according to a report in the local Antelope Valley Press. Police arrived at the scene to alert the union protestors that they were in the wrong place, but the activists—who had already been...

We have plenty of messenger boys.” — Sir William Preece, Chief Engineer, British Post Office, 1878 3.)

    Christian Today ^ | December 6, 2016 | Andre Mitchell
    The billionaire philanthropist chosen by President-elect Donald Trump to be his education secretary, Betsy DeVos, has expressed her preference in the past to give Christianity a bigger part in schooling in the United States. . . . In the recording, the Devos couple reportedly discussed how they are motivated by the Christian faith in pushing for reforms in how the youth are educated in the U.S.
  • Donald Trump has a massive Catholic problem [Catholic Caucus]

    The Washington Post ^ | AUGUST 30, 2106 | By Aaron Blake
    Much has been made of Donald Trump’s problems with a few voting groups — female voters, blacks and Hispanics, and young voters, in particular. And, to be sure, they are all problems. But relatively speaking, his biggest problem actually appears to be with a different group: Catholics. Yes, the man who once feuded with the pope (how soon we forget that actually happened) is cratering among Catholics.
  • John Calvin was America’s ’Founding Father’ [Presbyterian Rebellion Day]

    More than a thousand attendees are expected to gather for a four-day conference to celebrate John Calvin's 500th birthday, reports Michael Ireland, chief correspondent, ASSIST News Service. As America prepares to celebrate Independence Day this July 4, Vision Forum Ministries will be hosting the national celebration to honor the 500th birthday of John Calvin, a man who many scholars recognize as America's "Founding Father." The event -- The Reformation 500 Celebration -- will take place July 1-4 at the Park Plaza Hotel in downtown Boston, according to a media release about the event. "Long before America declared its independence, John...

    American Thinker ^ | July 16, 2016 | Laurence A. Elgin
    During the latter years of the last century, Congress enacted reforms to the federal immigration law. The part of this enactment with which, in light of the above, everyone should be concerned is now in the United States Code at Section 1324a(h)(2), where it mandates the federal pre-emption of: ... any State or local law imposing civil or criminal sanctions (other than through licensing and similar laws) upon those who employ, or recruit or refer for a fee for employment, unauthorized aliens. This provision flagrantly robs the American workers and businesses injured by the use of illegal alien workers of...

    One of the three winners of the record-breaking Powerball lottery jackpot in the United States became wealthy overnight thanks to the generosity of her boss, one of the American Jewish community’s leading philanthropists. Shlomo Rechnitz, a health care magnate who owns 80 assisted living facilities throughout California, purchased nearly 18,000 lottery tickets for all of his employees, one of which happened to contain the winning numbers. The unprecedented $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot will be divided among three winning tickets purchased in Tennessee, California and Florida. Each ticket is worth $528.8 million, lottery officials said in California, one of 44 states...

    With just two major Republican debates remaining before the Iowa presidential caucuses, Donald Trump has been remarkably lucky. The only major candidate who could actually inflict lasting harm on the vulgar poster child for inherited wealth, and the only one who could readily attract and hold some of Trump's blue collar constituency, is the only one banished - by the idiotic, poll-driven debate rules to which the feckless Republican National Committee acquiesced - from sharing a single stage with The Donald. For reasons both stylistic and substantive, Pennsylvania's former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum could eviscerate Trump in a direct encounter....

    Patheos ^ | 12/17/2015 | Benjamin Corey
    Wheaton College is stirring up an old debate this week that’s worth revisiting. Professor Larycia Hawkins, in an effort to show solidarity with Muslims, decided to wear a hijab during advent. While wearing a hijab may have been tolerated by the school, what she said about the relationship between Islam and Christianity, was not. She wrote: “I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book. And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.” For the crime of saying, “we worship the same God” Hawkins was suspended from...

I will not accept that Islam is at war with us and has been at war with the world for 1400 years. I will accept murder of children as a form of birth control. I will not allow the exchange of ideas in what was our institutes of learning. I will accept the theory that disagreeing with anyone is a form of aggression. Etc, Etc....

    National Review ^ | 11/5/2015 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The current presidential campaign is blowing up lots of political myths. For years, the conventional lament was that the "wrong" Bush had run for president in 2000. George W. Bush was supposedly tongue-tied. He was said to be polarizing. He was derided as too much the twangy, conservative Texas Christian. If only his younger, softer-spoken brother, then–Florida governor Jeb Bush, had run instead! So the myth went. Jeb was said to be far more bipartisan and judicious. Jeb, not W., was deemed by many to be the more likable and more competent descendent of their father, former president George H....

    A contestant on the popular game show “Jeopardy” was asked Friday to name a flower pictured that shares a disparaging name with “people on the political left.” Her answer proved to be incorrect, but some will argue that it was the most hilarious answer ever on a show that first aired on March 30, 1964.

    Jeb Bush declared on "America's Newsroom" that he is going to be the Republican nominee in 2016. Asked by Bill Hemmer whether he's satisfied with his current standing in the race, Bush said he believes he'll come out on top. "I'm excited about where we are and I know where we're going. I'm gonna be the Republican nominee and I cannot wait to take it to Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders or whoever it is," said Bush. In the latest RealClearPolitics polling average, Bush is in third nationally, with close to 8% support. But he trails Donald Trump by more...

    Sometimes, probably because he’s such an affable media presence, I forget why I dislike the political version of Mike Huckabee so much. Maybe it’s the aw-shucks populism, which isn’t substantively very different from the class-conflict rhetoric we hear from so many on the left these days. Or maybe it’s that Everyman Huckabee has been running for one political office or another for the past 25 years — a fact that might escape the attention of anyone listening to the nuggets of blue-collar wisdom found in his speeches and those God-guns-grits-and-gravy books he writes. Since his previous run for the presidency,...

    Evil and incompetent… what a bunch of Progressive idiots. Not only was it a rush to judgement of epic proportions and political grandstanding on a breathtaking level, Mosby charged the wrong people, under the wrong names, wrong birth dates and wrong addresses. This sent the vultures from the media and others to the homes of innocent people who have now had their lives turned upside down and have had to hire counsel to get the matter handled. Way to go Mosby… if she is this incompetent in charging those involved, think how she’ll handle the rest of the case and...

    The Atlantic ^ | 11/30/14 | Matti Friedman
    During the Gaza war this summer, it became clear that one of the most important aspects of the media-saturated conflict between Jews and Arabs is also the least covered: the press itself. The Western press has become less an observer of this conflict than an actor in it, a role with consequences for the millions of people trying to comprehend current events, including policymakers who depend on journalistic accounts to understand a region where they consistently seek, and fail, to productively intervene. An essay I wrote for Tablet on this topic in the aftermath of the war sparked intense interest....
