  • Make Peace With Your Children Before Bedtime and Don't Sacrifice Yourself

    1. Do not let your child go to sleep in tears. Always, no matter what the child has done, no matter how upset we are - before we go to bed, resentment is forgotten, everyone forgives each other, and we all embrace. I think it's not necessary to talk about the importance of a calm, full-fledged sleep for both adults and children. If you feel the need to discuss whatever happened yesterday, allow your child to have a proper night’s sleep, and then calmly discuss it in the morning. As they say, the morning is...

    The first love, the first relationship and the first poems written for them - all parents need to discuss these things with their children. Archpriest Vladimir Tukalo, a father of five children, discusses exactly how to speak about these things with your child. How do you suggest we approach our children? Sit across from them and start with the words: "Son (daughter), let's talk?” Or from time to time answer some questions as they arise? There is a formula for...
  • Putin Becoming 'a Decorative Dictator'

    Window on Eurasia ^ | 2018 | Semyon Novoprudsky
    The chief paradox of the upcoming elections in Russia is that everyone knows who the winner will be but no one knows what his policy will be – or even whether it will be completely 'his.' After establishing “a personalist dictatorship, Putin has watched as his system has drifted into one in which he will remain president, but “groups of siloviki” will fight over the spoils. Putin’s inability to protect members of his elite from the consequences of Western sanctions has given rise to this situation. Those sanctions have already led to the failure of three of the 15 largest...

    Looking at the Parkland, Fla. high school massacre, the state of America's political and social culture, and all that is happening: Is this a result of America turning it's back from God, or is it vice versa? What can be done to bring America back to God?

    If we want to defeat or change those who are wickedly determined to take the lives of other human beings unjustly, it should go without saying that we must look far beyond the killers’ chosen instrument of death. This is why the pro-life community doesn’t put any effort into attempting to ban suction curettes or forceps—which have killed far more people in the U.S. than have guns. Nevertheless—and seemingly inevitably—whenever a mass murderer goes on a killing spree in the U.S., those who are terrified of the notion of absolute truth (who are determined to rule their own world)—and especially...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) After all the hysteria over guns on the cable fake news networks this week, here’s a reality check from our friends in the Great White North of Minnesota: WCCO CBS Minnesota reports that record numbers of Minnesotans now own guns, record numbers of Minnesotans now have concealed carry permits, and the state’s violent crime rate hit a new all-time record low in 2017. That’s the reality of gun ownership in America: The more people who own guns and have permits to carry, the lower the violent crime rate becomes. Since concealed carry...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) While advocates on both sides of the largely-irrelevant gun control issue are talking past one another every hour on the hour on all the cable TV networks, one way to really, truly improve on the current system for preventing such acts in the future is becoming crystal clear: The FBI must be removed from the equation. First, let’s look at this killer’s background: - Law enforcement had had to be called to his home an almost unbelievable 39 times during the four years leading up to Wednesday’s act of mass murder;...

    I just love how leftists are so privileged and secure in their bubbles, that they can actually start demanding "gun owner registration and control", and "concentration camps and reeducation camps for gun owners, because they're all, sick evil people who need to be removed from society, for the greater good of all".. My response to that was simply... "No... Now what" To which the little NAZI actually claimed, "there will be a reckoning, and a final solution for your kind"... That's actually an amalgam of two evil leftists words.... but I'd say it accurately reflects their intent... in fact I...

    The FBI and the DOJ cannot investigate themselves One of the primary accusations against President Nixon that caused him to resign was that even though he was never shown to be personally aware of any abuses committed in his name, he fostered an environment that encouraged such behaviour. The truth is finally seeing the light of day. And what do we see? That President Obama was if not personally complicit in the growing list of abuses exposed, he set the tone and offered cover for his minions as they ran amuck trashing the FBI, the CIA, the IRS, FISA, and...

    Senior Senate staff say Sen. President Pro Tem Kevin DeLeon still actively helping former roommate Mendoza keep his paycheck In an exclusive interview to the Flash Report, a California State Senate senior staffer revealed a behind-the-scenes plot to save, or at least continue the Senate paycheck of Democrat Senator Tony Mendoza (Artesia), who in multiple media reports and news articles is alleged to be a serial sexual harasser of women in his own Senate office. The Senate staffer, who has worked several years in the Legislature under multiple leaders, requested anonymity for fear of workplace reprisals.

    It illustrates the appalling depth to which the network is willing to go to attack Trump – by merchandising a child’s death to advance its political agenda This morning, February 16, 2018, CNN sank to a new journalistic low by exploiting the grief of a mother mourning her slain Florida high school-age daughter. Just after she’d spent two hours making funeral arrangements for Alyssa Alhadeff, the network handed Lori Alhadeff a microphone, and faced her toward their camera where she yelled at President Trump to “do something” to stop this from happening.

    The “LEAVE OUR CHILDREN ALONE!” chant is one that should rise up today. It didn’t take the Women’s March Youth EMPOWER—an offshoot of Women’s March, which “upholds the unity principles of the Women’s March platform” to go rushing in on the exploitation of the mass murder at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. In fact it took them less than 24 hours to begin recruiting school children for a nationwide school walk-out, some of those children still grieving the deaths of their Marjory Stoneman Douglas classmates.

    West Hollywood, CA — The family and friends of Gemmel Moore, 26, are fighting an uphill battle to bring the man they say is responsible for his death to justice. Not surprisingly, the fact that Moore, who worked as a male escort, was found dead at the home of 63-year-old Ed Buck—who’s donated hundreds of thousands to Hillary Clinton—has received very little media coverage. On July 27, Moore’s body was discovered inside the West Hollywood apartment of Ed Buck. Buck is a well connected and extremely wealthy political activist who gives massive amounts of money to the Democratic party. His...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 2/16/18 | KrisAnne Hall
    Does the President have authority over immigration? That question cannot be answered by quoting a particular article, section, and clause. The Constitution must be applied. First, we must consider whether immigration involves a power delegated to the federal government. The answer to that question is yes and no. The authority to create “a uniform Rule of Naturalization” is vested in the federal government. However, not everything our federal government currently considers as immigration falls under this delegation. The power over foreign immigration is delegated through Article 1 section 8 clause 4; “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.” Because it...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Do Democrat candidates really want to stake their prospects on San Fran Nan? – The demented face of the Democrat Party was on full display for reporters yesterday, as San Fran Nan stuttered, stammered, spasmed, muttered and facial ticked her way through a press availability. The American Mirror captures the horror show that the rest of the fake news media refuses to report on. This is who Democrats want to replace Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House next year. Frightening. Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming. Oh, wait…: With Mitt...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The news that the FBI was actually warned last September about the Florida school killer who won’t be named here has me seriously thinking that lopping the top brass off the nation’s supposed “premier law enforcement agency” just isn’t going to be enough to salvage the Bureau’s viability going forward. No, considering the Bureau’s long and growing record of consistently failing to stop tragedies from taking place, and it’s growing number of examples of bullying behavior and corruption, it may seriously be time to disband the entire thing and start over....

    Moronic American Millennial students that socialism and communism starve their citizens either on purpose to keep them under strict control or through their disastrous economic policies I watched countless videos of Millennials interviewed on various campuses around the nation by people with knowledge of history or survivors of communism who were lucky enough to escape to this country or other western nations whose economies are based on the capitalist free market model and not the socialist one. In every video, the well-fed and cared for Millennials, in their indoctrinated and delusional rage, shout the praises of socialism and communism without...

    The corrosive Culture of Hate: Don’t let the publicity whores and exploiters of tragedy take away our turning to prayer We live in dangerous times, times made all the more dangerous by politicians and members of the entertainment industry who exploit them for that self aggrandizement called PUBLICITY. It is high time for the media, both mainstream and social, to cut society a break by following rule-of-thumb order that keeps back all seasoned exploiters of tragedy, allowing authorities and first responders the time to carefully assess when, how and why each and every tragedy happens.

Meanwhile, President Trump’s job approval rating shot up in this poll, to 47% approve vs. 47% disapprove. Hey, remember all those breathless predictions in the fake news media of a Democrat tidal wave election coming in the November mid-terms? Yeah, we’re...
