  • "Ascension Day, the Forgotten Festival" (Sermon for the Ascension of Our Lord, on Luke 24, Acts 1)

    “Ascension Day, the Forgotten Festival” (Luke 24:44-53; Acts 1:1-11) Welcome to the Forgotten Festival! Today is Ascension Day, or, as it’s more properly called, the Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord. But there is reason to call it, as I say, the “Forgotten” Festival. Because even though Ascension Day is classed in the church year as a major festival, which means it’s a day for all churches to hold the Divine Service of Word and Sacrament, the sad fact is that in recent decades many congregations and many Christians have forgotten all about celebrating this important festival. It used...

    The Lane Report ^ | May 25, 2017
    The Kroger Co. has identified a facility suitable for a logistics and distribution location in Boone County and will invest $70 million in it, according to a request for a reduction in state ad valorem tax rate to the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority. Kroger will be buying a newly created building, which will be one of the first significant capital investments for the company in the Northern Kentucky community beyond a retail project. This will allow Kroger to distribute thousands of items to over 1,000 stores regionally as well as create opportunities for additional investment and job creation in...

    For many years, Regent Park resident Sam Haque thought the Disney adage: “If you can dream it, you can do it” was advice only for people of privilege. “I thought it was only something rich parents tell their children,” he says. “But I’m proof that everyone can do it. And that’s the message I’m trying to get out there.” Haque, 35, who came to Toronto with his mother from Bangladesh when he was 15, turned his back on an opportunity to go to law school about eight years ago to follow his passion for doodling and design, and created Wise...
  • Even Alan Dershowitz Says There Is No Crime To Warrant The Mueller Special Counsel

    IWB ^ | Robert Carbery
    Proud Hillary Clinton voter and current constitutional/criminal law scholar and former Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said a few days ago that a special counsel should not have been appointed to investigate President Donald Trump as there is simply no criminal statute or crime that he or his campaign is alleged to have committed. Special counsels are appointed to discover federal crimes so why was former FBI Director Robert Mueller assigned to the case if there is no criminal statute that has been violated? At the end of the day, Special Counsel Mueller “is going to find no crime,” according...

    How ridiculous is all this going to get? You can watch it for yourself. It’s 10 seconds of nothingness that you’ll never get back, but at least it’s only 10 seconds. This, yes, this, is what is trending on Facebook at the moment. Trump shoves prime minister. Yeah. They’re really saying that. About this: I feel like an idiot even bothering with the details, but fine, I’ll play. First, look at the faces of both men. Do you see any aggression? Do you see any impatience? Do you see any tension whatsoever between them? Do you see anyone else who’s...

    It may even be possible that in their final dying moments, the victims of the Manchester Arena attack were afraid of Islam. If only they could be prosecuted after death. In the months before weeping little girls with nails in their faces were carried out of the Manchester Arena, the authorities of that city were hard at work fighting the dreaded threat of Islamophobia. While Salman Abedi, the second-generation Muslim refugee terrorist who maimed and killed dozens in a brutal terrorist attack, stalked the streets wailing, “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah”, Manchester...

    Stuart Saves his Senate Seat For whatever reason, people in Minnesota really seem happy with their decision to keep Al Franken in Congress. Despite his nebulous messages, boring demeanor, and uniformly terrible speeches on the Senate floor, he trounced his GOP rival in 2014 and remains bafflingly popular. Couple that with the whole “famous comedian” thing and you had what many on the left thought was a recipe for a presidential run. We’ve been hearing rumors almost since Franken claimed his Senate seat - at least as far back as 2010 - mostly due to the fact that Dems have...

    The horrific attack in Manchester England has thus far taken 22 lives- including children and young women. Prime Minister Theresa May has declared that courage will ultimately win the day: 'The liberal pluralistic values of Britain will always prevail over the hateful ideology of the terrorists. They proved that cowardice will always be defeated by bravery.'Mrs May closed her statement saying the spirit of Manchester and Britain as a whole showed the terrorists would not win, and branded atrocities such as last night's 'sick plots'.She said: 'That's why the terrorists will never win, and we will prevail.' When? And at what...
  • UK is Actively Involved in Trying to Discredit Trump – And They’re Using the American Media to Do It

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    The UK Government has denounced Donald Trump’s government for leaking pictures (of a Forensic nature) into the Media and thereby hampering the ongoing investigation into the Manchester Terror Attacks. And though the British media is involved in a full scale frenzy because of this, they neglect to point the finger of blame where it should really be. If one thing has become obvious since Donald trump’s election, it is that he does not have complete control over all departments and that it is the holdovers from the Obama administration that are actively involved in leaks of official documents. How many...

    Well, that worked well.... In the brutal 2016 cage-match between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, tax returns emerged as something of a broken bottle tossed into the ring. If Hillary could grab it, she’d be able to pull herself off the ropes and lash out with a deadly weapon. Democrats were sure the returns would show that Trump A: wasn’t rich, B: had been colluding with secret ex-Soviet forces, and C: had been dodging his federal responsibilities for something close to 20 years. The hunt was on.

    Sorry dude. You messed up. Any time the media jump all over a story that looks terrible for a Republican, I smell a rat. And when the poor, innocent victim is a mainstream journalist, I smell a double rat. My instinct is usually that it’s all just a little too perfect, and usually when I look into it I find that I was right to trust my instincts. So when I heard that Greg Gianforte, the Republican candidate in the upcoming Montana special congressional election, had assaulted a reporter for asking him questions about health care, my first thought was,...
  • Response to Terror: 'Go About As Normal' Say Protected Politicians

    After every horrific terror incident, politicians attempt to calm their populace by telling us to go about our daily business; we can't let the terrorist win. It's so easy for multi-million dollar politicians with round-the-clock, world class personal security for themselves and their families to calmly tell us all to just "go about as normal" in a more dangerous world they carelessly created for the general public to endure in the name of one-way multiculturalism.

    Because if you have power to change your situation, then you don't need to rely on them There is nothing liberals hate more than the suggestion that people with problems in their lives have the power to solve those problems, on their own, by making changes in their lives. They freak out at any such suggestion and paint it as “blaming the victim.” But it is really not that at all. It is simply a recognition that people make their own decisions and form their own attitudes, and that they have the power to change those decisions and attitudes if...

    Although Abbas has yet to publicly responded to Trump’s demand that financing of terrorism stop, I believe Trump will force him to do so Secretary Tillerson said yesterday that Trump put enormous pressure on Abbas and Netanyahu. So where is Trump going? For the answer, look at the concessions he got from them. Abbas agreed that Israel could keep Maaleh Adumin, Ariel and Gush Etzion. The Israel Cabinet agreed to allow some Arab building in area C and to not demolish illegal Arab construction. The Gulf states said they would normalize with Israel if Israel froze construction outside of the...

    Trump hatred drives ratings. But journalists, having stooped so low as to be indistinguishable from third-rate, hostile, buffoonish comedians like Maher and Colbert The anti-Trump venom from the mainstream media has become so virulent that broadcasters and reporters alike risk becoming little more than extensions of the late-night “comedic” lineup, bashing the President without regard for truth or factual accuracy. And above all, most of these journalists realize, and sometimes admit, that they want to help the Democrats win the next election. The comparison between late night show hosts and the news media becomes stark when one compares Joy Reid’s...

    Abbas will end up in the diplomatic wilderness if he ignores the messages delivered by both Trump and Netanyahu The horrific carnage perpetrated in Manchester on 22 May presented an emotion-charged backdrop to two meetings the next day between President Trump and President Abbas in Bethlehem and President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu in Jerusalem. Trump pointedly told Abbas: “Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded. We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single, unified voice. Peace is a choice we must make each day—and the United States...

    Special Counsels like Special Prosecutors take on a life of their own The original accusation, the underlying premise for the entire hissy fit by the chronic sufferers of Trump Derangement Syndrome’s about Russian collusion was that the Russians hacked the DNC and gave the emails to Wikileaks. Recently Internet entrepreneur and hacker, Kim DotCom, admitted that he was part of an operation along with Seth Rich, an employee of the DNC to get internal emails to Wikileaks.

    Brace yourselves, deplorables for a MSM-created preacher who is a cross somewhere between Elmer Gantry and the America-cursing Rev. Jeremiah Wright with a little Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan thrown in for good measure. German chancellor Angela Merkel and the trash tabloid headlines supermarket shoppers read while waiting to cash out have much in common: Both are unwilling to let former President Barack Obama go and live in a fantasy world where he’s still president. “Obama will deliver a speech alongside German chancellor Angela Merkel at Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate. The Obama Foundation says the invitation from Merkel came before...
