    Publisher of the Gloom Boom & Doom Report Marc Faber spoke with FOX Business Networkís (FBN) Neil Cavuto about the realistic possibility of the market collapsing before November saying ďMost people havenít really made any money over the last 12 months or even two years because the market is down over the last 12 months.Ē He continued saying ďthe economy is stuck,Ē and ďThatís why you have people like Trump and Bernie Sanders having such an appeal. Otherwise if the economy was very strong, they wouldnít essentially be contenders for the presidential election.Ē On the impact the economy has had...

    Why do they hate Ted Cruz so much? Well, yeah, partly it's because he's conservative. But why hate that? It's more than that. It's threatening. And I'm just gonna tell you: In the case of Ted Cruz, every damned one of these people knows full well that they're not in his league in terms of IQ, in terms of intelligence, in terms of talent and ability. They can't compete with him. So they ignore him. They pretend he's not there. When they do have him on to interview him, they usually resort to tactics of intimidation or putting him down...

    There is no evidence that a Trump presidency would promote evangelical values; in fact, there is more evidence that he would oppose them. Yet Trump continues to be the favorite candidate of evangelical voters. They do not seem to be asking the most basic questions, like whether this candidate has the right principles; whether the candidate offers a realistic plan for realizing those principles within the constraints of our political system; and whether the candidate demonstrates the character, experience, and virtue to make that plan succeed. How do we account for this evident discrepancy between these voters’ principles and their...

    resident Obama and members of his administration assure us we have nothing to fear when it comes to terrorism. Whether you accept this, or not -- and opinion polls show a majority do not -- there is another fear that in large part is behind the phenomenon known as Donald Trump. It is the fear we are in danger of losing America. Speaking as a member of a group that will in this century become a minority in America -- that would be white people -- I don't fear minority status. I fear that those who will soon make up...

    President Barack Obama will use his Sunday night address on terrorism to urge the American people not to 'give in to fear' after the California shootings. In only the third Oval Office address of his two terms as Commander in Chief, Obama will also pledge to use 'every single aspect of American power' to combat terrorism. The symbolic use of the Oval Office is likely an attempt by Obama to set a tone of political gravitas equal to the moment after repeated accusations that he underestimated the threat from ISIS. However, Attorney General Loretta Lynch cautioned this morning that the...

    In "The Plot Against America," the novelist Philip Roth imagines an alternative history at the dawn of World War II. Charles A. Lindbergh, aviator hero and crypto-fascist, defeats Franklin D.

    If there is one thing consistent about the tides of the culture wars, it is that whenever one side is emboldened, it inevitably leads to overreach.

This step, which would crush the budgets of many churches and non-profits, reveals an amusing hypocrisy of the modern Leftís turn against civil...

    News about the spread of the Ebola virus has been an increasing focus for market participants in recent days. Despite rising media coverage, Ebola seems to have had little discernible effect on consumer sentiment to date. However, as Goldman Sachs notes, the "fear factor" associated with Ebola appears more significant than in past instances of pandemic concern. While expert opinion sees the likelihood of a significant outbreak of Ebola in the US as very low, it is likely any negative macroeconomic consequences are most likely to be transmitted through fear or risk-aversion channels.

    by Randy Alcorn In times of doubt, difficulty, and trials, our fundamental beliefs about God and our faith are revealed. So how can Christians find faith in the midst of doubt? How can they trust God’s plan when their lives seem out of His control, and prayers seem to go unanswered or, as it sometimes feels, even unheard?If you or someone you love has been there, these questions may be far more personal than theoretical. You might ask questions like these: Is God good? Is He sovereign? Does He care?When we’re assailed by trials, we need perspective for our minds and relief...

    Islamic State Fighters Reportedly ĎRun Awayí from a Certain Type of Soldier. Radical Islamists who decide to embark on suicidal missions often do so with the expectation they will be rewarded with 72 virgins if they die in battle; however, it turns out there is one major caveat to the scenario, according to a U.S. lawmaker. That is, if they are killed by a woman, the deal is off. Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), chairman of the House International Relations Committee, told the New York Post, ďThese ISIL [Islamic State] soldiers apparently believed that if they were killed in battle, they...

    Until the end of August, Reformation Trust is giving away the ebook edition of R.C. Sproulís Surprised by Suffering: The Role of Pain and Death in the Christian Life. In Surprised by Suffering, R.C. Sproul argues that we should expect pain and sorrow in this life. Some are actually called to a ďvocationĒ of suffering, and all of us are called to undergo the ultimate suffering of death. God promises in His Word that difficult times will come upon us, but He also promises that He allows suffering for our good and His glory, and He will never give us...

    In America today, itís almost impossible for men not to worry. After all, 102 million Americans are unemployed while another 10 million are just a paycheck away from being jobless. World events, like Russia invading the Ukraine to steal the Crimean peninsula (which many believe is a precursor to World War Three); news reports of natural disasters all across the planet; the deadly Ebola virus spreading throughout West Africa; the disappearance of the Malaysian airliner with 239 passengers on board; the constant intrusion into our private lives by an administration bent on reshaping the American dream as we once...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 11/24/2013 | Msgr Charles Pope
    In yesterdayís (Sunday) Gospel, the good thief on the cross rebukes the bad thief at the other side of Jesus with a very poignant question, Have you no fear of God?.Now this question is very well addressed to us as well; especially those of us who live in this modern age, so often marked by things like presumption. Further, with the rise of militant atheism, there is even a contemptuous dismissal of† the fact that we will ever answer to God or anyone for anything we do.Even among believers, there are many who have all but set aside any notion...

    Last week, Amnesty International released a report on U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan, concluding that as many as 900 civilians might have been killed and 600 seriously injured in the attacks since 2004, when the controversial program began. The United States launched between 330 to 374 drone strikes in Pakistan between 2004 and September 2013, according to the report. And those strikes have created a culture of fear on the ground. "I wasn't scared of drones before," Nabeela, an 8-year-old whose grandmother, Mamana Bibi, was killed by a 2012 drone strike, says in the report. "But now when they fly...

    President Obama and his senior cabinet officials are mounting a big push to bolster foreign direct investment in the US Ė amid evidence that America is falling behind other countries in the race for global capital. The evidence? How about the USA being near the bottom in the Americas with Chile leading and the USA down at the bottom with Mexico, El Salvador and Venezuela. Even Paraguay has a higher FDI as a percentage of GDP! fdiamericas ďOn the heels of the manufactured crises in Washington, itís time for folks to come together and focus on doing everything we can...
