    National Black Robe Regiment ^ | October 26. 2016 | Unattributed
    VISION and MISSION The modern National Black Robe Regiment is a network of national and local pastors that equips and empowers pastors to engage in their Biblical and historical role to stand boldly for righteousness and transform society through spiritual and cultural engagement. The early American pastor had a reputation as a courageous and fearless leader, causing the British during the American Revolution to dub them “The Black Regiment,” a reference to their clerical robes. Those pastors boldly proclaimed the Word of God as it applied to everything in life, whether spiritual or temporal—about eternal life in Christ, taxes, education,...

    Nevertheless, in an email to GOP insiders Sunday, Borges announced he would be supporting the party's presidential nominee in the upcoming election, citing his overwhelming concern about a Hillary Clinton presidency. "I will be supporting a straight Republican ticket – starting with Donald Trump for president," he wrote, in an email obtained by the Cincinnati Enquirer. "A Hillary Clinton presidency would be a disaster for our country." "The prospect of her winning is just unacceptable to me," he later added in a statement. Borges said much of his decision to support Trump stemmed from previous conversations he has had with...

"Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign, total fabrication. The events never happened, never," he said during a rally in Gettysburg, Pa., on Saturday.

Duh. This is how people feel in the community. It’s mocking Trump. It’s funny yet very appropriate considering the nonsense Donald Trump has continued to say about Muslims.”

    “Is Hillary off the campaign trail because her physicians have put her on a drug holiday?” Noel asks, noting she also stopped campaigning for a prolonged period before the second debate. “A ‘drug holiday’ is often prescribed for Parkinson’s disease patients,” Noel explained to WND. “The problem is that Parkinson’s patients need increased doses of their medication as the disease progresses.” A drug holiday, he said, would “allow her physicians to get her drug-free for a while, so she can be on lower doses when the drugs are restarted.” “She needs to be able to come on stage appearing to...

    Art Halvorson may be the most interesting Democratic nominee for Congress this election—in part because he's really a Tea Party Republican. Halvorson in 2014 ran against pork-barreling Transportation Committee chairman and political legacy Bill Shuster. Shuster is most famous for his relationship with an airline lobbyist, an obvious conflict of interest for a Transpo chairman. Halvorson ran again this year, and lost the GOP primary to Shuster by only 1,200 votes—about 1 percent of the electorate. That same day, however, 1,069 Democratic voters wrote in his name on the Democratic primary ballot. No Democrat had filed to run, and Halvorson...

"She has been so battered and beaten," Biden, who endorsed the Democratic presidential nominee months after deciding not to launch his own White House bid, told "Meet the Press" moderator Chuck Todd in a new interview.

    Evan McMullin's improbable third-party presidential campaign received a boost Wednesday with the release of a new poll of McMullin's home state, Utah, showing him just four points behind Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. It was amazing enough that pollsters from the Salt Lake City-based firm Y2 Analytics found the Republican and Democratic candidates tied at 26 percent in one of the nation's reddest states. But it was downright astonishing that an unknown like McMullin could be hot on their heels with 22 percent. . . . McMullin believes the Republican Party is rife with racism.

Donald Trump is not a Boy Scout. If that’s what Americans were looking for they could have elected Mitt Romney in 2012. But they didn’t, proving these latest attacks are nothing more than slimy political theater.

Every single one of the NFL's primetime offerings (Sunday, Monday, and Thursday Night Football) is down double-digits, according to Sports Illustrated. Overall, NFL viewership is down 11% this year.

That’s 40 to 50 million men and women who probably say they love America but still failed to exercise the simplest and most basic form of citizenship. Pundits and pollsters are predicting similar electoral apathy on Nov. 8 – perhaps in even greater numbers. Personally, I’ve never seen such apathy among Christians for the two major party presidential candidates. Christians who stay on the sidelines usually...

    Jeb Bush appeared Thursday evening to confirm earlier reports that his father plans to vote for Hillary Clinton against GOP nominee Donald Trump. "I thought it was a little inappropriate for a person to overhear a frail, 92-year-old man in a private setting at a reception for the Points of Light Foundation, which focuses on volunteerism, to hear this and then immediately go on Facebook and put it on there, and go on national television and not even show up at the board meeting," Bush told NBC News' Jordan Frasier Thursday evening.

    Chelsea Clinton said she didn’t know Hillary Clinton had pneumonia until she stumbled out of a 9/11 commemoration ceremony. During an interview with Cosmopolitan published Wednesday, the daughter of the Democratic nominee was asked why her mother didn’t disclose her illness to voters sooner when Chelsea admitted that not even she knew about it. “Well, I didn’t know that she had pneumonia,” Clinton told the magazine. “I didn’t know she had pneumonia until she came over to my apartment.”

On Wednesday, the state party responded to the Texas Victory Leaders Council by...

    A federal judge Tuesday blocked Election Day voter registration at polling places in Illinois, declaring a state law allowing the practice unconstitutional because it created one set of rules for cities and another for rural areas. Voters will still be able to register Nov. 8 and cast a ballot for president but only at a limited number of sites, including the county clerk's office, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections. The ruling, handed down on National Voter Registration Day, is the latest front in a broader battle between Democrats led by House Speaker Michael Madigan and Republicans led...
