    A little over a week ago, someone attempted to blackmail me. On August 12, I received this message in an e-mail: “...I infected your system with a trojan and now have all of your private data out of your operating system. “It previously was set up on an adult page then you have selected the video and clicked on it, my program instantly got into your os. “And then, your cam documented you soloing, also i caught a footage that you've seen. “Just after a little while this also pulled out your device contacts.

    The accusations that Democratic National Committee vice chairman Keith Ellison sexually abused two women may become the latest case of social mores butting up against religious freedom. DNC chairman Tom Perez reminded critics of Ellison’s behavior that “imposition of Christian standards of behavior on a Muslim man violate the First Amendment protection against government infringement on the free exercise of religion.” “Under Islam, a man has total dominance over a woman,” Perez observed. “First, under sharia law, a woman is effectively only half as human as a man. Using this math, each of the accusers’ testimony is out weighed by...

    <p>No, it’s not the progressives. Many on the left are true cop-haters from the get go. A prime example of how the left detest police (unless they become victims of a crime and squeal like the cowards they are) occurred during the recent Ontario election campaign. Gurrant Singh, brother of federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, was a star candidate for the NDP. It was revealed he once carried a sign in a demonstration that read “F**K the POLICE.” Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath saw nothing wrong with that. Neither did the rest of her radical caucus.</p>

    There's word from the war Saudi Arabia is conducting in Yemen against the Houthis who heavily populate the northern part of the country and are supported by Iran. A bomb supplied by the United States was used in an air attack on a school bus recently that killed 51 people including 40 children. It was a laser guided Mk 82 bomb manufactured by defense contractor Lockheed Martin according to the lettering on it. This news report has political overtones since CNN is behind it noting that former President Barack Obama banned the sale of these kind of bombs after an...

    “From Darkness to Light” (Ephesians 5:6-21)Have you ever come out of a really dark room into a bright, sunlit area? It takes a few moments to get used to, doesn’t it? Your eyes have to adjust to the new reality. But once they do, you have so much a better view of what’s around you and in front of you. No longer are you stumbling around in the dark, bumping into things. Now you can see clearly where to walk, what’s the right way to go. Well, that’s kind of how it is for us as Christians. We have come...

    The Danger of Hitler Comparisons: Part 2 By Philip CottrauxClick here to read part 1. After I wrote about why it’s dangerous to compare your political enemies to Hitler (which is an epidemic right now), I thought I was done with the subject. In fact, last week I moved on to something else. But I started thinking more about it and realized that I still have much to say. While the first blog was about why it’s both dangerous and intellectually lazy to categorize a politician you didn’t vote for as “the next Hitler,” this week I want to explore...

    Along with a great shopping experience, Publix also prides itself on the food it makes fresh daily in the store. Some of us grab a box of fried chicken for an easy dinner and others pick up some great sweet tea for a get-together. But the most popular item in the Publix deli is the sub sandwiches. Appropriately nicknamed “Pub Subs,” these sandwiches hold a special place in our hearts. Most of us remember our very first Pub Sub, and over the years have perfected our orders. We won’t mention them by name, but other sandwich chains just can’t compete....

    The headline on the editorial page of "The York Dispatch" newspaper in York, Pennsylvania today was "Trump Parrots Tyrants". Hundreds of newspapers across the country participated in joint editorializing against President Trump's tough criticism of mainstream media in the country. But that's not all. There was a cartoon to the right of the editorial depicting eight leaders. Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Adolf Hitler...... The jurors spent Thursday deliberating in Alexandria, Virginia at the trial of Paul Manafort.....

    It’s not just Pennsylvania; something is rotten in Sacramento, California, but it is the men who are wrong, not the Church itself Outside of the Catholic Church, high-risk, sexually violent and repeat sex offenders are required to register on sex offender registries for life, and in California are listed on the Megan’s Law public website. Within the Catholic Church, homosexual priests are offered rehabilitation. Pedophile priests are moved to another parish and avoid prosecution. Why should or would Catholic parents send their children into harms way to Catholic schools inside Catholic parishes run by corrupted Bishops? The explosive news Tuesday...

    Judge Sarah Backus allowed 5 jihadists to walk free. She did it because the prosecutors would not have asked for high bail for any other religion. Sure, they were training kids to shoot up schools but after all, boys will be boys. Some of you think they had to put up $20,000 a piece to get out of jail. That would be wrong. First of all, a “signature bond” isn’t really a bond. Rather it says if you violate the terms of the release you owe the bond. But if the five of them skip the country, how do you...

    Poland’s defense minister today called an LGBT march in-country as a march of sodomites which was focused on promoting an ideology rather than civil rights. Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said Sunday on TV Trwam, a Catholic, pro-government station, that the march of 5,000 people the day before in the city of Poznan was an example of city authorities focusing on “ideology” rather than taking care of daily municipal issues, reported Associated Press. He called the march “another parade of sodomites who are trying to impose their own interpretation of civic rights on other people.” The Visegrad Group of countries, consisting...

    aren Solomon’s new cookbook, “Cured Meat, Smoked Fish & Pickled Eggs: Recipes and Techniques for Preserving Protein-Packed Foods,” is, on the one hand, very Jewish. Ashkenazi Jews have been at the forefront of food preservation for generations and will appreciate recipes for gravlax, several types of herring and “Killer Smoked Fish Salad.” The book also has recipes for prosciutto made from duck, and for pastrami that Solomon considers one of her top crowd-pleasers. “People just love it,” she said. “There are certain things I make that make people really happy. Bacon tops the list, but that pastrami recipe is right...

    “Put off the Old, Put on the New” (Ephesians 4:17 - 5:2) “Clothes make the man.” I’m sure many of you have heard that old saying. “Clothes make the man.” The idea is that how you dress will affect how people perceive you--and maybe also how you perceive yourself. If you dress shabbily, in dingy, dirty old clothes, you will be perceived one way. If you dress your best, you will convey a different impression. “Clothes make the man.” Likewise, it’s a good idea to dress appropriate to who you are. If you’re a pastor, a clerical shirt is appropriate...

    By now you’ve heard of the compound in New Mexico where children were being both abused and taught to become school shooters. The makeshift compound — located near the Colorado border — was found shielded by old tires, wooden pallets and other debris. Upon authorities’ arrival, Wahhaj was “heavily armed with an AR15 rifle, five loaded 30 round magazines, and four loaded pistols, including one in his pocket when he was taken down,” Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said. The sheriff said the children, ages 1 to 15, “looked like third world country refugees not only with no food or fresh water,...

    There's a WAR on There's a war on, whether or not we wanted to know it, and that war is getting hotter. No it isn't a war with Russia or China or North Korea. It's a war between God and Satan. Satan picked this fight, but God is going to finish it. I've never seen so much spiritual disinformation flying around in my whole life. The devil's getting desperate. Lies are the only thing that he's got for himself, so he dishes them out everywhere. Unbelievers fall for it, but so do weak Christians, who need to learn something more...

    For Trump to contemplate being dragged into the Hamas and PLO quicksand that has claimed so many sincerely-intentioned do-gooders preceding him is incomprehensible President Trump’s attempt to see a five-year Gaza ceasefire negotiated between Hamas and Israel seems to be an exercise in futility destined to failure. America’s involvement first surfaced on 7 July when “an unnamed senior Trump administration official” stated:

    Geller Report ^ | 8/6/2018 | Pamela Geller
    Why did France’s government vote against having an age of consent? The answer is obvious. Muhammad married his favorite wife Aisha when she was six and consummated the marriage when Aisha was nine. Since Muhammad did that, and since he is the “excellent example” for all Muslims to follow, child marriage is acceptable in Islam. This is a sign of France’s capitulation and Islamization. They cannot set an age of consent, because Islam doesn’t have one. This is a sign of how quickly Western values erode when our leaders do not have the will to defend them.
