    Behold Israel YouTube Channel ^ | Nov. 19, 2018 | Amir Tsarfati
    Amir reports on today's strikes by Israeli F-16s. He does not give exact target or targets but relates it to previous statements by Netanyahu. Russia, since September 17, when their spy plane was shot down, has been totally on the side of Iran and Turkey, and will move to take over the spoils of Syria and then eventually Israel. Some clarifications of prophecy and on the Gaza attacks. Be of good cheer, and give thanks to God.
  • My husband’s support for Trump is poisoning our marriage. Should I get a divorce?

    The Globe and Mail ^ | 11/19/18 | David Eddie
    I’ve been with my husband for eight years. We have no kids. For the past three, he has become increasingly alt-right and quite the Trump supporter. I’m very moderate in politics, but slightly left of centre. I like to follow the truth where it falls. But he will not allow for any kind of discourse or debate. He’s right, and I’m wrong. According to him, I’ve been brainwashed. It’s gotten to the point where I have left the house and am considering divorce. It has filtered into our relationship in too many ways. I’m not sure what to do.

    On Friday's CNN Tonight, Don Lemon hosted a panel discussion of why most white women voted for Donald Trump that was stacked three to one against conservatives. Liberal contributor Kirsten Powers argued that such women must be "racist" because they voted for Trump, while UC Berkeley Professor Stephanie Jones-Rogers argued that women have long benefited from "white supremacy" even while being "oppressed" by white men. Alice Stewart was the exception to the liberal rule. At 11:27 p.m. Eastern, after Lemon began by asking Powers her view, she recalled: "People will say that they support him for reasons other than his...

  • Glenn Beck Destroys the Myth That Pro-Life People are Just Pro-Birth in One Single Tweet

    LIFE NEWS ^ | November 19, 2018 | Micaiah Bilger
    Conservative media personality Glen Beck dismantled a popular pro-abortion myth in a short, simple tweet over the weekend. Beck was accused of being “pro-birth” after sharing a LifeNews.com article about Hollywood actresses hosting a party to celebrate their abortions. It is a common attack lobbed at pro-life advocates, but it is ridiculously false. Offering no evidence to support her claim, a Twitter user named Carol Valentine told Beck: “When those who yell about the rights of the unborn child actually step up to care for that child throughout the child’s life, then I will feel that those protesters are actually...
  • Russia’s Third-Largest City to Pay Tribute to Stalin With New Statue

    The Moscow Times ^ | Nov 19, 2018
    A new Stalin statue will be erected in Russia’s third-largest city of Novosibirsk next spring as the legacy of the Soviet dictator continues to divide society. Contemporary attitudes are split in Russia toward the historical role of Stalin, who is responsible for the deaths and suffering of millions of Soviet citizens during his rule from 1924 until his death in 1953. Polls show Russians view him as a “remarkable” figure and the younger population is unaware of Stalin-era purges, while President Vladimir Putin has dismissed attacks on Stalin as a ploy to demonize Russia. A Novosibirsk action group voted Saturday...

    The White House released new rules for presidential press conferences on Monday in hopes of restoring decorum among reporters. They include the following: (1) A journalist called upon to ask a question will ask a single question and then will yield the floor to other journalists; (2) At the discretion of the President or other White House official taking questions, a follow-up question or questions may be permitted; and where a follow up has been allowed and asked, the questioner will then yield the floor; (3) "Yielding the floor" includes, when applicable, physically surrendering the microphone to White House staff...

    It seems with each week FOX News loses a little more respect from its conservative and pro-Trump base.Last week FOX News jumped on a court case to support Jim Acosta’s right to be a jackass and hijack White House pressers. On Sunday FOX News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace told the US President in his one-on-one interview that he is seen as a “beacon of repression” around the world. The media is over 90% negative on Trump despite his record economy and stellar foreign policy and Wallace attacks the president for questioning the fake news media? How awful. Chris Wallace tells...

    GREELEY, Colo. (Reuters) - A Colorado man was sentenced to life without parole on Monday for strangling his pregnant wife, smothering their two young daughters and dumping their bodies in an oil field so he could pursue a romantic affair. Christopher Watts, 33, was spared the death penalty at the urging of family members of his wife, Shanann, 34, who was 15 weeks pregnant, and their daughters Celeste, 3, and Bella, 4. “This is perhaps the most inhumane and vicious crime I have handled,” Judge Marcelo Kopcow, who has 17 years on the bench, said in the packed and windowless...

The group, which at its height numbered about 300, gathered in front of a statue of the Aztec warrior Cuauhtémoc before making their way to a sports complex serving as a temporary shelter to...

    SAN LUIS RÍO COLORADO, Mexico—The U.S. has slashed the number of migrants being allowed to cross the U.S.-Mexican border to legally apply for asylum, as caravans totaling some 10,000 migrants trudge north through Mexico. Here at the border station across from Yuma, Ariz., 30 families or more normally cross each day, say Mexican immigration officials. But in the last two weeks the U.S. Customs and Border Protection has let in one family a day at most, say migrants and their advocates. “It really seems like they are trying to discourage people from crossing to seek asylum legally, or trying to...
