  • Romney: Ceasefire Announcement ‘Far from a Victory’

    Breitbart ^ | 10/17/2019 | Ian Hanchett
    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.”
  • Tolkien’s Long Defeat and the Path of History

    “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...
  • Emily Infeld’s 4th-Place Finish at Beach to Beacon Is More Than a Comeback

    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...

I’ve watched the two millionth “the problem with conservatism is people like you, the solution for conservatism is people like me” debate, and I’m just sick and tired of so many of our brethren averting their eyes from the big, glaring, worsening problem that rips off so many decent, hard-working folks. The Huge Albatross to the Conservative Movement that Few Want to Talk About Back in 2013, Conservative StrikeForce PAC raised $2.2 million in funds vowing to support Ken Cuccinelli’s campaign for governor in Virginia. Court filings and FEC records showed that the PAC only contributed $10,000 to Cuccinelli’s...

    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.
  • Meet Beatie Deutsch, the Ultra-Orthodox Runner Setting Records and Shattering Expectations

    Halfway through the Tiberias Marathon in Tiberias, Israel, on January 4, Bracha “Beatie” Deutsch thought victory was in the bag. But then she saw another female runner, Israeli marathon record holder Elena Dolinin, far up ahead, and her heart sank. “She is a 2:35 marathoner, and I didn’t think she would slow down,” Deutsch told Runner’s World. “I was disappointed, because my family was all there watching.” Cheering on the sidelines were the 29-year-old’s husband and their five children. If being a mother didn’t make the runner stand out from the rest of the elite field, her running attire—a long-sleeved...

    Today marks 2 years since Donald J. Trump was sworn in as our President. To commemorate this anniversary, the White House has published a list of this Administration's most noteworthy accomplishments. Here is an excerpt from the ECONOMIC accomplishments section: "Together, we are building a safe, strong, and proud America." Donald J. Trump President of the United States IGNITING A HISTORIC ECONOMIC BOOM: President Trump’s pro-growth policies are unleashing economic growth and providing opportunities to workers across the country. Due to President Trump’s pro-growth policies, real gross domestic product (GDP) growth exceeded 3 percent over the last four quarters. Real...

    As the ongoing partial government shutdown trudges on, Trump is only digging his heels in further as he fights to secure the country’s borders. Most Democrats, who have staunchly held onto their open borders rhetoric, almost seem eager to let this nonsense drag on as long as possible, government workers be damned. But there is a growing belief among leftists and Democrats that their steadfastness may be playing right into the deal-making hands of the president. Watching that grim reality dawn on them has beep utterly priceless. Take, for instance, liberal Donny Deutsch visibly losing his mind on camera on...

    1 Kings 3:5-12; 2 Kings 19:14-22, 32-35 GOD'S ANSWER TO THE DEFEATED BELIEVER, or, WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS! It’s amazing how when things are going our way how we live by faith. Amen? But when it goes a little crazy, we become skeptics and we try to do things on our own. That’s when we are tested. People can’t understand why they never grow, they never get close to God—it’s because when He puts something in your way for you to trust Him, you don’t trust Him. You always use plan B. And if you are a Christian, it just...

    Many Roman emperors tried to destroy Christianity. One of them was Diocletian and he was particularly violent in his hatred of the Bible and Christianity. He killed so many Christians with such outrageous cruelties and destroyed so many Bibles that many Christians went underground and hid themselves from the wrath. When it seemed to Diocletian that he had made an end of them, he had a medal coined with this motto on it: “The Christian religion is destroyed, and the worship of the Roman gods are restored.” Boy, he knows different now, don’t he? He knows different now.

    This is a grim moment for President Trump and his fellow Republicans. A Trump-boosting Republican member of Congress has been indicted on charges of insider trading — from the White House, no less. Trump’s former campaign chairman and another former aide are squabbling in court over who is the bigger criminal. And in a closely watched special congressional race in Ohio — a seat Republicans have held for 35 years in a district Trump won by 11 points and Mitt Romney by 10 — the Republican was clinging to a 0.9-percentage -point lead Wednesday despite Trump’s intervention and vast sums...

    Voters in Ohio's 12th Congressional District appear to have narrowly elected Republican Troy Balderson in yesterday's special election, thwarting Democrats' hopes to flip another GOP-held seat ahead of the midterm elections.  The race came down to the wire, but the incumbent party ultimately prevailed.  There's a small chance that provisional ballots could trigger a recount, and that absentee ballots could shift votes, but left-leaning elections guru Dave Wasserman looks at the math and effectively calls the contest over, discerning that defeated Democrat Danny O'Connor would "need a miracle" to reverse the outcome.  For all intents and purposes, and barring major...

And I can assure you, under President Donald Trump, American security will be as dominant in the heavens as we are here on Earth.” “We will beat back any disadvantage that our lack of attention has placed and America will once again lead in space,” Pence...
