    The recent wave of censorship of conservative voices on the internet by tech giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Apple mirrors a plan concocted by a coalition of George Soros-funded, progressive groups to take back power in Washington from President Trump’s administration. A confidential, 49-page memo for defeating Trump by working with the major social-media platforms to eliminate “right wing propaganda and fake news” was presented in January 2017 by Media Matters founder David Brock at a retreat in Florida with about 100 donors, the Washington Free Beacon reported at the time. On Monday, the Gateway Pundit blog noted the memo’s...

    White Double ALTHOUGH MARY’S GLORY is within her, beauty appears also in the garment wherewith she is clad: a mysterious robe woven of the virtues of the Saints, who owe to her both their justice and their reward. As every grace comes to us through our Mother, so all the glory of heaven converges towards that of the Queen. Now among the blessed souls there are some more immediately connected with the holy Virgin. Prevented by the peculiarly tender love of the Mother of grace, they left all things, when on earth, to run after the odor of the...

    President Trump on Monday suggested he may pull the security clearance of former FBI official Phil Mudd after Mudd appeared on a heated CNN segment over the weekend to push back against the president's revocation of clearances from other members of the intelligence community Trump tweeted that he watched Mudd "become totally unglued and weird" during a debate with CNN analyst Paris Dennard on the president's decision to revoke ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance. "Mudd is in no mental condition to have such a Clearance," Trump said. "Should be REVOKED?" Trump tagged Fox News host Sean Hannity in the...

    Two Chicago police officers are in hot water Monday after a picture of them sleeping on the job went viral. The photo showed two cops in a Chicago Police 6111 vehicle slumped over and snoozing. Both were wearing black bullet-proof vests. The picture was posted Saturday and has been shared more than 20,000 times on Facebook, including by mayoral candidate Ja’Mal Green. Green, who has been active in the Black Lives Matter movement, blamed the sleeping situation on mandatory overtime ordered by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

    Trump and the RNC are hinting that the Democrat Blue Wave will transform into a red Trumpian tsunami.  With Rasmussen showing 36% approval in the Black community, I think a red tsunami is quite possible. But what does a red tsunami look like? Here's an imaginery meme of one coming ashore as Dems and GOPe are partying and plotting impeachment. Click the image to see it in full size.  If you like this pic, feel free to widely distribute it.  And let's make the Red Tsunami a reality.  MAGA!  Go Trump! While researching this pic, I ran across a very...

    On March 21 Mary Jo Schnell was at Burnidge Forest Preserve along Coombs Road when she found a string of paw prints 3 inches wide... The Elgin-area reports started at Thanksgiving time in 2008. Deer hunter Pat Crawford had set up a motion-activated trail camera in the back woods of Charles MacArthur's tree nursery along Plank Road west of Route 20. When he checked the film, he discovered one smudgy, underexposed picture of a beefy, catlike animal. Another caller said he had been driving to work and had seen the corpse of a large brown animal along Route 47 on...
  • Fears over tear gas cloud in Chinese city near North Korea

    08/20/2018 7:48:56 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 1 replies
    The government of Baishan, a prefecture-level city in northeast China’s Jilin province, rushed to issue an apology last Friday after local residents complained of being tear-gassed. According to local cadres, large amounts of mace and other irritating gases were blown over the city after a change in the wind direction. The noxious gases may have come from a military drill on the outskirts of the city. The Baishan government’s statement only noted that the incident occurred during an annual military exercise, without elaborating further. *** Some netizens suspected the drill was conducted to deal with possible border emergencies, as Baishan...

    Its Tuesday in Australia where Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull survived a vote of confidence as Liberal Party caucus met just 24 hours after Turnbull backed down on part of an energy policy he announced last week. Turnbull abandoned a plan setting targets for carbon emissions opposed by many caucus members. The Liberal Party has also been reeling from defeats in recent by-elections for lower house seats in Parliament. Mr. Turnbull was able to survive a challenge from Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton winning 48-35 in the caucus meeting. A win for Turnbull but a narrow one in the context of...

    A research project by an international Catholic think tank, to be launched today by Mary McAleese, is to challenge the theological evidence for church teaching that homosexual acts are "intrinsically disorder". Plans for the study by Wijngaards Institute for Catholic Research will be unveiled at Trinity College by McAleese, a former president and an outspoken critic of the Vatican. The institute will call on Pope Francis to question official church teaching on same-sex relationships. "I am hoping the project will advance an intelligent and scholarly debate about the warped, damaging, unchristian, unscientific, fake gender ideology which currently underpins Catholic teaching...

    Warning: This story contains graphic content Paul Welch came to the downtown protest Aug. 4 to let his political leanings be known. With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators. Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued. It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter...

    “Abraham raised his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him a ram caught in the thicket by his horns; and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the place of his son. And Abraham called the name of that place The Lord Will Provide, as it is said to this day, ‘In the mount of the Lord it will be provided’” (Genesis 22:13-14). When God provides for a believer, He’s being true to His name. The Old Testament gives God many names, but one of the most lovely is Jehovah-Jireh, translated in...

    Grace To ^ | 1993 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    "[Love] is not provoked" (1 Cor. 13:5). Self-centered anger cannot coexist with love. The great eighteenth-century preacher and theologian Jonathan Edwards had a daughter with an uncontrollable temper. When a young man asked Dr. Edwards for his daughter's hand in marriage, he said no. The young man was crushed. "But I love her and she loves me," he pleaded. "That makes no difference," Edwards replied, "she isn't worthy of you." "But she is a Christian, isn't she," the young man argued. "Yes," said Edwards, "but the grace of God can live with some people with whom no one else could...

    Protesters on the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill campus on Monday night brought down a controversial monument dedicated to Confederate soldiers, according to media reports. The Daily Tar Heel posted a series of photos and videos that showed protesters surrounding the monument and shrouding it in banners around 8 p.m. The monument was covered in a canvas that read “For a World Without White Supremacy.” By about 9:30 p.m., protesters had toppled the monument, and began burying its head in dirt. Police appeared to form a boundary around the statue and its empty pedestal a short time later, The Daily...

    Africa’s youngest head of state heals the wounds of one of its oldest churches.Ending 27 years of schism, Ethiopian Orthodox Christians in their homeland and in America reunited the two feuding branches of one of the world’s oldest churches. Ironically, the push came from the Horn of Africa nation’s new evangelical prime minister. “It is impossible to think of Ethiopia without taking note of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, which is both great and sacred,” said Abiy Ahmed at the July 27 ceremony in Washington, reported the Fana state-run news agency. A member of the World Council of Churches, the...

    August 20, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – In the media coverage of “Deathgate”—that is, the Pope’s emendation of the Catechism so that it states that capital punishment is always and everywhere inadmissible, as being contrary to human dignity and the Gospel—many authors have pointed out that if Francis comes to be seen as having authority to change a part of Church teaching that has been stable for millennia, people will naturally expect other parts to fall within the scope of his power. This impression will especially affect moral matters, where modern democratic convictions and social conventions are far removed from Christian teaching....

    The Boston Globe ^ | 8/20/18 | Aimee Ortiz
    Boston Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley apologized Monday for the way his office handled a 2015 letter containing allegations against Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington who was removed from the ministry in June and resigned in July after reports that he had sexually assaulted minors and abused seminarians. O’Malley’s statement was released Monday evening, more than a month after news outlets reported that Rev. Boniface Ramsey, a priest in New York, penned the letter that raised questions on McCarrick. The statement tackles the issue of the Catholic Church’s credibility and strikes a more apologetic tone than his...

    Authorities are looking for a Pennsylvania man who is believed to have threatened to shoot President Trump. CNN reported that the U.S. Marshals Service is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Shawn Richard Christy, who was least seen Sunday night driving a stolen car in Cumberland, Md. The FBI said in a warrant on its website that Christy allegedly made threats against Trump and Northampton County (Pa.) District Attorney John Morganelli on Facebook between June 3 and 12. In the posts, Christy, 27, claimed he is going to shoot Trump in the head and use...
