    Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva surprised his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates Sunday when he stood in the tunnel for the national anthem at Soldier Field. Several Steelers players told ESPN that they expected the entire team to stay in the locker room -- as planned -- for the pregame song. But the former Army Ranger decided to walk out of the locker room and stand in the tunnel with his hand over his chest during the rendition. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin stood on his team's sideline during the song, without his team behind him. Villanueva served multiple terms...

    President-elect Donald Trump will host a new round of rallies in the coming weeks to celebrate his 2016 election win, according to one of his top aides. George Gigicos, the head of the Trump advance team, spoke to reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York City Thursday, where he said their team is working on "the victory tour now." He asked Trump's former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, who was behind him, to ask when the tour would be happening. She came forward to reporters and said, "'Thank you tour.' It's not a 'victory tour,'" to which Gigicos...

    My sincere compliments on the individual who sent this article to me. Thank you. I very like it, and I want to make a particular effort to express how much. Enjoy, everyone: -- In any other election year, at this point in the primaries, party leaders would be rallying around the frontrunners in the name of unity. But 2016 is no ordinary year. Hillary Clinton's coronation has been a bumpy ride thanks to Bernie Sanders, though, short of a federal indictment, Mrs. Clinton will probably be the liberal standard come November. The Democratic Party will be running under the "business...

    Conservatives have had an abundant number of excellent candidates for the Presidency, this election cycle. From successful Governor's like Walker, Jindal, and Jeb Bush, to Cruz, Rubio, Carsen, on down the line. News Flash: NONE OF THESE GUYS ARE BOB MICHEL, BOB DOLE, JOHN McCAIN, OR MITT "ROMNEYCARE" ROMNEY STYLE "RINO's". Most of these guys have been pretty conservative throughout their history. Rubio and Cruz have been decent Senators - heck, amongst the MOST conservative Senators. Jeb Bush and Scott Walker were darn good Governors. ALL OF THESE GUYS WOULD MAKE ONE HECK OF A PRESIDENT, and far better than...
  • Planned Parenthood Asks Supporters to Thank Staff for Selling Aborted Baby Body Parts

    07/28/2015 5:13:33 PM PDT · by Morgana · 3 replies ^ | Jul 28, 2015 | Steven Ertelt
    There are four Planned Parenthood doctors who have been caught on camera facilitating the sale of body parts from aborted babies and future videos are expected to show additional top abortion business officials doing the same thing. One might expect the abortion giant would consider firing these top Planned Parenthood officials, reprimand them in some way or take some other administrative action against them. Instead Planned Parenthood is launching a Thank You campaign. That’s right, the abortion company is asking its supporters to send its staff thank you cards telling them how much they appreciate everything they do. There’s no...

    HUNTER GARTH was in a gunfight for his life — and about to lose.He and seven other Marines were huddled in a mud hut, their only refuge after they walked into an ambush in Trek Nawa, a Taliban stronghold in Afghanistan. Down to his last 15 bullets, one buddy already terribly wounded, Mr. Garth pulled off his helmet, smoked a cheap Afghan cigarette, and “came to terms with what was happening.”“I’m going to die here with my best friends,” he recalled thinking.I didn’t know any of this — nor the remarkable story of his survival that day — when I...

    From abortion clinic owner Charlotte Taft: For many women nowadays, they’re angry that they had a choice. It’s too bizarre, but it’s like “If you weren’t here, I wouldn’t have to have made this choice.” And so, instead of feeling gratitude toward the physician and a sense of, you know, “You’ve helped me so much” a lot of the time that woman [is] in her own pain or anger, or whatever, and the doctor may not get a lot of that [gratitude] these days…When a woman doesn’t want an abortion, but simply accepts it as her fate, she is unlikely...

    Get Your Feet Wet Today's Scripture “So the people of Israel walked through the middle of the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on each side!” (Exodus 14:22, NLT) Today's Word from Joel and Victoria When Joshua and the Israelites needed to get across the Jordan River, God said He would open it up, but they had to get their feet wet before the waters parted. They could have sat back and thought, “As soon as God opens it, then we’ll walk toward it. It doesn’t make sense to go now. The river is still flowing. Everything...

    While the Obama Administration is still pumping resources and taxpayer money into the implementation of Obamacare, the initial disbursement of pork included in the bill was successfully doled out almost a full two years ago. And the main recipient of taxpayer largess was, once again, the UAW. The Obamacare pork came in the form of a program called the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program or ERRP. $5 billion of taxpayer money was allocated to help pay for healthcare costs to retirees between the age of 55 and 65 . Number one on the union-dominated list of recipients was the UAW, which...

    For the American servicemen and –women on the front lines – those who will be spending the winter at remote outposts or on patrol in places like Afghanistan – “home for the holidays” is just a dream. That’s why a special military lab has stepped up to give them a little taste of home: A holiday dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet-potato casserole, and green beans. Hot sauce? That too.

    President Shimon Peres on Sunday evening phoned and thanked bus driver Michael Yoger and passenger David Papo, whose actions saved lives in the explosion on the 240 bus in Bat Yam earlier in the day. Peres asked to hear the details of the event and thanked Yoger and Papo for their actions in discovering the device and clearing the passengers from the bus, saving lives in the process. The explosion took place shortly after passengers noticed a suspicious object and reported it to the driver, who quickly removed all passengers from the bus. .....

    Texas Woman’s Viral “THANK YOU” Letter to Obama As Lana Vestal puts it, she is nothing more than an average American like you and I. But after posting on her Facebook wall a post that received nearly 63,000 shares, she says she is getting messages from all over the country about her rant to President Obama. It’s not just her that feels this way either. According to Rasmussen, only 30% of voters think the health care system is likely to get better as a result of Obamacare. But most voters (52%) still believe the system will get worse under the...

In other words, you’ve got to keep going even when you don’t feel like it. You have to keep pressing forward even when it’s not easy. Every voice will tell you, “You’re done. There’s nothing good in your future.” No, don’t believe those lies. God sees your effort. It’s one thing...

    He Makes Up the Difference Today's Scripture “...for when I am weak [in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful in divine strength).” (2 Corinthians 12:10, AMP) Today's Word from Joel and Victoria No matter what weakness you think you may have, no matter what inadequacies or setbacks you’ve encountered, God wants to give you His divine strength. He wants to make up the difference and put you further ahead than you ever thought possible. One time in the Old Testament, God simply multiplied the sound of four men’s footsteps and caused them to sound like a...

The many whose sacrifices and courage kept us free are leaving us much too quickly and with sadness in their hearts wondering what their sacrifice was for. Remember them this anniversary of D Day and honor them because we are not likely to be allowed to win the victories they...

    n this crisp January morning, the day of Barack Hussein Obama’s second inauguration (or his second coming, as Newsweek would have it), we find it pertinent to send a message of thanks to our enlightened and benevolent ruler for everything he has done for his humble subjects during his first term in office. We thank you for helping put more guns than ever before in the hands of American citizens. We are especially grateful for your proactive approach to promoting America’s favorite rifle. Many who thought the black rifle was just an expensive toy, now find it to be an...

Many times, people can miss God’s best simply because they give up before they see their “due season” come. Don’t let that be you! Be encouraged today, your answer is closer than you think.
