    "The fight against the epidemic is not finished," French President Emmanuel Macron said today in an address to the nation, "but I am happy about this first victory against the virus." As reported in The Guardian, all of mainland France including Paris will be designated a "green zone" as of tomorrow. As such, cafes and restaurants will be permitted to open as normal; family visits will be permitted at retirement homes; and schools (except high schools) will reopen fully...

    Beloved, daily bombardments from this demonic world seek to rattle and destroy the faith of the men and women of Almighty God (John 16:33; Eph. 6:10-12, 1 Peter 5:8). It is so easy to look inwardly and subjectively and see ourselves as poor wretched victims. It is sad to say that many blood brought children of Almighty God in Christ today choose unbelief which results in the shipwrecked life on the rocks of lawless consequences, subjectivism, and self-pity. Truly there are no utopias here on planet earth even for God's redeemed (Matt. 6:27-33, John 16:33, Phil. 4:6-7), but we are...
  • Belarus WW2 parade defies pandemic and upstages Putin

    There will be no tanks, no parade of soldiers and veterans in the heart of Moscow to mark the 75th anniversary of victory in World War Two. The Red Square 9 May parade has been cancelled because of the pandemic. But in neighbouring Belarus the parade will go ahead, complete with a concert in the centre of the capital Minsk and festive fireworks. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko appears unfazed by the pandemic. He has not followed the European pattern of imposing sweeping restrictions. Russia is still under lockdown, and for six days it has recorded more than 10,000 new Covid-19...

    The taking of trophies and the building of memorials to mark military victories has been common throughout the history of warfare. The English word “trophy” is derived from the ancient Greek tropaion, which was a display of captured weapons, armor and standards commemorating the defeat of an enemy.

  • Exclusive–Ortiz: Boris Johnson Election Victory Is Bad News for Democrats

    Boris Johnson’s dominant election victory in the U.K. national election this week is great news for the U.S., yet terrible news for the Democratic Party. Defying the pundits, Johnson romped to a majority government in the biggest conservative victory since Lady Thatcher in the 1980s. The win was just the latest for the silent majority that wants good governance in contrast to the bellicose activists who desire socialism.

    Over 600 Daesh/ISIS affiliates, including Pakistanis, Central Asians and Iranians, surrendered over the past two weeks in Afghanistan, said the country’s Defense Ministry on Saturday. Days after Afghan officials announced clearing the long-held bastions of Daesh/ISIS in the country’s east, along the disputed Durand Line border with Pakistan, the Defense Ministry said 18 more militants, accompanied by 24 women and 31 children, surrendered on Friday. With this, the total number of those associated with the group surrendering surpassed 600, it said. The ministry said the robust clean-up operation forced militants to surrender.

    One Year From Today... Is Election Day 2020. Let's speak life and prayers over our President, his administration, our Congress, our Supreme Court, and all state and local houses of governance. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. -Habakkuk 2:3-4

    During a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) stated that while he welcomes the announcement of a ceasefire in Syria, “It is far from a victory.” Romney said, “I welcome the vice president’s announcement of a ceasefire, which will prevent further loss of life. I hope the agreement is honored. … The announcement today is being portrayed as a victory. It is far from a victory. Serious questions remain about how the decision was reached to precipitously withdraw from Syria and why that decision was reached.”

    “Actually I am a Christian,” Tolkien wrote of himself, “and indeed a Roman Catholic, so that I do not expect ‘history’ to be anything but a ‘long defeat’— though it contains (and in legend may contain more clearly and movingly) some samples or glimpses of final victory” (Letters 255). +++ History as a long defeat – I can think of nothing that is more anti-modern than this sentiment expressed by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is a thought perfectly in line with the fathers and the whole of Classical Christian teaching. And it’s anti-modernism reveals much about the dominant heresy of our...

    Full title: Trump jubilant in tweet blitz over NC victories, calls it ‘big night’ for Republicans President Donald Trump launched a tweet blitz overnight Wednesday to celebrate party victories in two North Carolina races for U.S. Congress, calling it a “big night for the Republican party.” Republican Dan Bishop won a tight District 9 race and Republican Greg Murphy was victorious by a wide margin in the state’s 3rd Congressional District, the Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday. Trump visited North Carolina this week to stump for Bishop, and seemed to take particular pride in defeating Democrat Dan McCready. “Dan Bishop was...

    For the first time since February 2018, Emily Infeld embraced the hard effort of competing in a race. Paying no mind to the clock, she trusted the cues her body provided her as she continued to battle her way through the final hill all the way through the finish line at TD Beach to Beacon 10K on August 3. Just seven months after her last hip surgery, Infeld had the rush of racing again, a feeling that she missed. The 2015 world bronze medalist covered the 10K course in 32:39 as the fourth overall finisher and top American in Cape...

  • Appeals court denies demands to halt Trump abortion referral 'gag rule'

    The Hill ^ | 7-11-2019 | Jesse Hellmann
    A federal appeals court on Thursday ruled that the Trump administration can proceed with its overhaul of the Title X family planning program, setting aside demands to halt a recent decision allowing the administration to enforce a "gag rule" for abortion referrals. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against emergency petitions that sought to block the rule from taking effect while the changes are being challenged in court. That means the administration can enforce the rules, which block abortion providers like Planned Parenthood from the Title X program and bans providers in that program from referring women for...

    28After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, to fulfill the Scripture, said, “I am thirsty.” 29A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. 30Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit. John 19:28-30 May God bless the reading of His Word.
