  • [Who?] Evan McMullin takes shot at Trump's appearance

    Washington Examiner ^ | 2/11/17 | Al Weaver
    Former independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin took a swipe at President Trump's looks on Saturday, saying that refugees who come to America are better looking than the president. In a tweet Saturday, McMullin spoke out in support of the "well-vetted" refugees who come to the U.S. from various parts of the world, saying that they present less risk to the country than the Trump administration. "Trump's presidency presents more risk to the Republic than do the well-vetted refugees we resettle to America," McMullin said, adding "And, they're better looking!"

    Former presidential candidate Evan McMullin and his running mate Mindy Finn will launch a new conservative group on Wednesday that's opposed to President Trump, and will kick off the effort with a television advertisement questioning his connections to Russia. "Stand Up Republic" is a new 501(c)4 political nonprofit organization. They envision their new group as a home for conservative grassroots opposition to Trump, but plan to partner with activists on the left who share their concerns about the threat they believe Trump poses to the Constitution, equality and liberty.

    A caller described himself as a Reagan supporter, asked why not give it a chance with Russia and Putin. Levin like a dictator wouldn't let him speak, shouted him off the air. And then, without any sense of irony, shouted that Putin is a "fascist." Hey Mark, why could Reagan negotiate with Gorbachev, but you don't want Trump to try to work an accommodation with Putin? Even though Putin is fighting on the side of Christians in Syria against the jihadists who are slaughtering them? You really want war with Russia, "great one"?

Levin said that the choice of Rex Tillerson ranks among the “worst” of Trump’s Cabinet picks.

The hour-long exam included six minutes of rest; six minutes of audiovisual control (a video detailing their church’s membership statistics); eight minutes of quotations by Mormon and world religious leaders; eight minutes...

In a technical sense the Gospel has now been preached to every nation on earth in fulfillment of Mark 13:10.  Some scholars argue that we must interpret the Greek word for "nation" strictly as an individual ethnic group, but even if that is the correct interpretation, this prophecy was likely fulfilled sometime toward the end of the 20th century or the beginning of this century.  There are certainly still several isolated tribes where the Gospel has not been preached,...

    Mitt Romney's reemergence this election cycle as a harsh critic of Donald Trump has been crippling for his favorability among Republican voters, a new poll shows. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, is seen as favorable by just 28 percent of Republican primary voters, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday. A startling 62 percent of Republican primary voters view him unfavorably, the poll found, and 10 percent said they were not sure. That net favorability of minus-34 percentage points is a dramatic drop from polling conducted prior to 2016. In January 2015, for example, Romney was seen...

The trouble for Mr Cruz, who has now won eight states to Mr Trump's 21, is that he only seems able to win in places, such as Utah, with rare concentrations of evangelicals, Mormons or the otherwise ultraconservative. And there are not many such places...

The Arizona rancher was one of the most recognizable faces of the armed standoff in Oregon, where a group of protesters seized the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in early January to protest what they said was federal overreach into Western rangelands. Finicum was shot dead by police on Jan. 26...

    First of all, I should have started earlier. Christmas got in the way of my redditing. Second, the second day of Smithmas was supposed to be a video of Gordon B Hinkley slipping up in an interview and saying "Jesus Smith" instead of "Joseph Smith". Unfortunately, the video has been banned from the internets, and it took me all day searching just to confirm that I couldn't find it. My third day of Smithmas would have been a photo of the Joseph Smith SphinxI may have followed up with more Joseph-worship, but got sidetracked by the video being killed, and...

    A MORMON CHURCH IN AUSTRALIA IS RECEIVING PRAISE AFTER A PHOTO OF A MUSLIM MAN PRAYING IN THEIR CHURCH GOES VIRAL.

One of the members of the...

    Las Vegas - Marco Rubio is going all in to win Nevada. Though the Florida senator has eschewed the idea that he needs to hunker down in any particular state, his campaign has quietly and steadily poured resources into the Silver State, where chaos and dismal turnout rule the caucuses. Rumors of the Rubio campaign's weak ground game in Iowa and New Hampshire have led many to conclude that his strategists don't believe he needs an early-state victory to remain competitive as the primary season moves into March. But that narrative overlooks the reality on the ground here in Nevada,...

    An atheist professor said Tuesday that it's acceptable to criticize Christians but not Muslims, because he does not "fear" retaliation from Christians. "I know what keeps me from critiquing Islam on my blog is just fear," Phil Zuckerman said at a discussion on religious liberty at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. "I've got three kids. "So I know I can say anything about Christianity or Mormonism, and I'm not living in fear, which is a testament to Christianity and Mormonism, and that's wonderful. Thank you," said Zuckerman, who is a self-described atheist and professor of secular studies at Pitzer College...

    Situated at the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah, Temple Square is the spiritual, cultural and administrative center of the Mormon faith. This ten acres plot of land includes a Temple, a domed tabernacle and numerous buildings, monuments and memorials. While this place may seem holy and wholesome, a closer look at the structures reveal the presence of occult, pagan and masonic symbols. A deeper study of those grounds only adds to the controversy regarding Mormonism and reveals the disturbing truth about its real god.This article's intent is not to condemn Mormonism as a faith, but rather to analyze the...

    The evidence of Joseph Smith's close connection to occultism and Freemasonry, and how this influenced the origin and development of the LDS Church is not well known outside of scholarly circles. This article summarizes the evidence for Joseph's personal involvement in both Freemasonry and occultism, and their influence on the Mormon religion. "There is absolutely no question in my mind that the Mormon ceremony which came to be known as the Endowment, introduced by Joseph Smith to Mormon Masons, had an immediate inspiration from Masonry." — Dr. Reed Durham, LDS Historian Mormonism's Link to OccultismBoth Joseph Smith and his father...

    Evil Spirits from the spirit prison and from Hell. Elder Parley P. Pratt described the difference in appearance between these spirits and the righteous spirits which dwell in paradise. Persons who have departed this life, and have not yet been raised from the dead are spirits. These are two kinds, viz.--good and evil. These two kinds also include many grades of good and evil.The good spirits, in the superlative sens of the word, are they who, in this life, partook of the Holy Priesthood, and of the fulness of the gospel.This class of spirits minister to the heirs of salvation,...
