Take Chris Cuomo on CNN this morning, who said: “Many in the audience at the CNN townhall supported a ban on semiautomatic weapons.” Get the rest of the story at FinkelBlog:

  • Justification From the Just God (Protestant/Evangelical Caucus and Devotional)

    It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus - Romans 3:22b-26 Various views about God exist in our culture, but if there is one belief that people hold in common across religious lines, it is that “God is love.” This would not be a problem if the belief that God is love were defined by biblical content, for Scripture does indeed reveal that God is a loving God. Regrettably, however, some of the loudest proponents of the notion that God is...

    PODGORICA, Montenegro — An attacker threw a hand grenade at the U.S. Embassy in Montenegro’s capital and then killed himself with another explosive device, officials said Thursday. No one else apparently was hurt and there was no major damage. Police sealed off the area after the blasts around midnight local time (6 p.m. ET Wednesday). The State Department said embassy officials were working with police to identify the assailant and was seeking to confirm that all staff were safe. Police officers armed with submachine guns were out on the streets near the building on Thursday morning. U.S. citizens were advised...
  • YouTube hoses down wild Florida shooting conspiracy theory: this survivor is a ‘crisis actor

    A top trending video on YouTube suggesting an outspoken survivor of the Parkland school shooting is actually a “crisis actor” has been taken off the video platform. “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s policy on harassment and bullying,” a note replacing the clip read Wednesday afternoon. In the days after suspected gunman Nikolas Cruz opened fire in the halls of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, David Hogg has demanded government officials consider stricter gun laws.

    Conservative commentator Pam Geller revealed on Breitbart News Daily on Wednesday morning that her panel on free speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) had been canceled because she refused to remove Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit as a participant. “Late last night, I received a call … demanding that I remove one of the speakers from the panel. I would not do this. I told them it was unconscionable that a panel on free speech — I mean, it’s, I don’t know if anybody sees the irony, and this just happened — and I’m sorry, I’m breaking it...

    Upper Darby police were searching for a man they say threatened to kill the entire congregation of his church. Accompanied by family members, Sherwood Hargrove, 59, of Drexel Hill, turned himself in Wednesday morning. But hours later, Hargrove was back on the streets much to the chagrin of the police. "The fact that he was allowed to sign his own bail is beyond belief to me," said Upper Darby Police Supt. Michael Chitwood. ---SNIP--- They have kicked around the idea with police of having people conceal carrying weapons on the grounds.

    Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Colton Haab said he was approached by CNN to ask a question at Wednesday night's town hall but decided not to after the network gave him a "scripted question," quashing one he wrote himself. Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC shielded students while the school was under attack from the shooter, said he was going to ask about using veterans as armed security guards. "CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted," Haab told WPLG-TV

    You probably didn’t hear this because few media organizations have even mentioned it, but Russia committed an act of war against the United States a little more than a week ago. No, this is not about more social media and election shenanigans. Russia mounted an armed assault against American soldiers and our allies in Syria, including Kurdish security forces affiliated with the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, at a military base in the city of Deir Ezzor, the largest in eastern Syria. Russian combatants fought alongside Assad regime fighters and Shia militias armed, funded and directed by Iran. Both the...

    It is both dismal and amusing to see the rationalizations of the diehard Kremlin collusionists after Robert Mueller’s spurious indictment of the 13 Russians who will never encounter the vagaries of United States justice. The charge of conspiring against the United States is nonsense, and the whole ambiance of the investigation now is that of a phantom consolation prize for the absence of a crime, a victim, or a culprit, all amplified by the hollow sanctimony of an official America that has meddled countless times in the elections of other countries (usually for the general good of the Western alliance)....

  • Florida survivors push back after GOP activist says they're 'hijacked by left-wing groups'

    Student survivors of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who are taking the fight for gun control to the state and national level don’t appreciate seeing their organizing efforts being labeled as a left-wing conspiracy. “Their sorrow can very easily be hijacked by left-wing groups who have an agenda,” former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) told CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday, specifically naming billionaire and liberal activist George Soros. “Do we really think 17-year-olds on their own are going to plan a nationwide rally?” the conservative activist continued. Incensed students went on the air following Kingston’s remarks to...

    For the mega-rich, clearly, a regular plastic grocery bag is too drab. Céline, a France-based luxury clothing brand, unveiled a transparent plastic shopping bag during Paris Spring/Summer 2018 fashion week in January. The bag has since been spotted in a Nordstrom pop-up store in Seattle, retailing for $590. (That is approximately $589.95 higher than what a regular plastic bag costs to produce.)

    Concord University in West Virginia and Clemson University in South Carolina were both founded shortly after the Civil War. During the 20th century, each grew rapidly. Now, the two public universities that sit just 300 miles apart face very different circumstances. Clemson, a large research university, enrolled its largest-ever freshman class in 2017 and in December broke ground on an $87 million building for the college of business.

    Several top Democratic congressmen are distancing themselves from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi over her harsh criticism of President Trump's tax cuts. Democratic National Committee Vice Chairman Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) pushed back on Pelosi's comment that bonuses paid to employees by various companies were mere "crumbs." "The income inequality is so bad, that if you could pick up $1,000 or $900, maybe it helps," he said in comments reported by Axios.

Some comments on the Palestinians and Egypt's role in all of this. Turkey's conflict with everyone, including Greece. As an old friend of mine once said, "At the dawn of recorded history, the Middle East was at war."

    President Donald Trump’s fury about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Russia-probe recusal has broken out again like a bad rash. This morning, Trump tweeted a “question” in which he wondered: “If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of investigation? Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Why aren’t the Dem crimes under investigation? Ask Jeff Sessions!” It’s the President of the United States’ latest comment in response to Friday’s indictment of 13 Russians for meddling in the 2016 election ,in which POTUS failed to address...
