  • "Three Saints of Advent: St. Ambrose of Milan, Pastor and Hymnwriter" (Advent Sermon)

    12/07/2022 8:36:17 PM PST · by Charles Henrickson · 4 replies ^ | December 7, 2022 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “Three Saints of Advent: St. Ambrose of Milan, Pastor and Hymnwriter” For our midweek Advent services this year, we’re doing a series I’m calling “Three Saints of Advent: Andrew, Ambrose, and John the Baptist.” Now how did I come up with that idea? By looking at the calendar. The first Wednesday in Advent this year was November 30, and that date is set aside in the church calendar as the Feast of St. Andrew, one of the twelve apostles. The second Wednesday in Advent is today, December 7, and this date is listed in the church year as the Commemoration...

    Wikipedia "teaches" that "Black Pride in the United States is a movement which encourages black people to celebrate African-American culture and embrace their African heritage ....... it was a direct response to white racism ........" If you look up "Gay Pride" in Wikipedia you "learn" that it "is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as a social group." If you look up White Pride in Wikipedia you "learn" that it is a phrase "primarily used by white separatist, white nationalist, fascist, neo-Nazi and white supremacist organizations in order...

    Powerline ^ | 7 Dec 2022 | John Hinderaker
    Why has pretty much all of big business gone left-wing? There are several theories, none of which seem to me to fully explain the phenomenon. But whatever the causes, the effect is an inescapable part of our daily landscape. Here are a few instances for today.Disney has a new/old CEO in Bob Iger, and many speculated that he would pull back on that company’s extreme leftism. But not for long: yesterday he expounded on the duty of corporations to oppose constitutional gun rights:Iger said, “As a grandfather, as a father, as CEO of The Walt Disney Company, I believe there...

    Okay, inflation is taking a bite out of our wallets in large part due to rising food prices. However, I think I might actually be paying less for food than before because of planning my food purchases with much greater care.This, of course, includes stocking up when there is a good sale on a food item. I did this just a couple of weeks ago when I bought a couple of extra frozen turkeys that were on sale at Publix for just 49 cents per pound. If I had a foot freezer I probably would have bought 10 such turkeys.Another...

    VIDEODisgraced Twitter censor Jim Baker who was just "exited" by Elon Musk has a history of antagonism towards the MAGA movement which we know he lumps with what he labels as domestic extremists. To get a glimpse of the mindset of Baker whose final act as a Twitter censor was secretly vetting the Twitter files by removing FBI connections with Twitter's suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.In this video we see the disgraced former FBI General Counsel Baker at a 2019 conference of fellow liberals discussing "Domestic Extremism and International Terrorism" in which the latter topic was almost completely...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | December 7, 2022 | Cristina Laila
    Another day, another leak to the Washington Post. Trump’s lawyers were forced to search at least two of Trump’s properties for classified materials after the Mar-a-Lago raid. The lawyers were instructed by an Obama-appointed federal judge to search Trump’s New Jersey Bedminster golf club and Trump Tower New York to “attest they had fully complied with a May grand jury subpoena” according to a leak to the Washington Post. U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell told Trump’s legal team to continue their search for classified documents after the Justice Department claimed Trump’s previous searches were incomplete. No new materials were...
  • Dense Fortune Magazine Blames ‘Aging Boomers’ for Stubborn Inflation

    NewsBusters ^ | 12/7/2022 | Joseph Vazquez
    Leave it to leftist rags like Fortune magazine to target older Americans to insulate President Joe Biden’s disastrous economic policies from blame for the ongoing inflation struggle. The magazine published a condescending Nov. 30 story with a ridiculous headline: “Aging boomers are making it harder to tame inflation—and there are no quick solutions in sight.” Fortune complained about “fewer older Americans handing over your fast food order or working part-time at the local grocery store” before dipping deeper in the toilet of brazen elitism. “Those missing workers are not just causing the ‘help wanted’ signs to linger, but are actually...

    Embattled IL GOP chair Don Tracy is using the few allies he has left to fight back against the tsunami wave of support from the grassroots, who are calling for his resignation following embarrassing losses during the midterm election and new revelations that his family-owned business, Dot Foods, where he is an owner, donated to Joe Biden in 2020 during the height of the pandemic and lockdowns. As the Chicago Tribune Editorial Board pointed out in a Nov. 11 editorial, “Republicans lost every state constitutional office – governor, attorney general, secretary of state, comptroller and treasurer – and 14 of...

    C40 is a network of mayors of nearly 100 world-leading cities collaborating to deliver the World Economic Forum (WEF) plan to confront the grossly exaggerated climate crisis. Their social engineering plan is an authoritative “vision of climate action that is rooted in equity because we know that climate, social and economic justice can only be achieved together.” Equity and economic justice are Marxism, aka communism or the collective. You can go to this map to find the cities worldwide that are C40 cities. ARUP published a report outlining some of the transformative changes needed across the economy to reduce consumption-based...

    After “The Twitter Files” dropped and we were actually able to see the evidence of collusion between Twitter execs and the Biden administration to suppress reporting about Hunter Biden’s laptop, a whole bunch of journalists have been on a real crusade to delegitimize Matt Taibbi’s reporting and make Taibbi and Elon Musk look like the bad guys here, like they’re the ones who did something wrong. One of those journalists is apparently James Surowiecki, author of “The Wisdom of Crowds” and kneejerk defender of Hunter Biden’s honor. Here’s what Surowiecki had to offer to the conversation surrounding the material that...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 4 December 2022 | John Semmens
    The FDA is being sued by Dr. Paul Marik of Virginia, Dr. Mary Bowden of Texas and Dr. Robert Apter of Arizona for illegally prohibited them from prescribing Ivermectin (IVM) to their covid patients. In his opening argument, Isaac Belfer, a lawyer defending FDA, told the court that "the FDA didn't prohibit any doctor from prescribing this drug. It merely advised them not to do so. Any regrets that these doctors may feel for their patients who died because they felt pressured to follow the FDA's advice have no grounds for this suit." The plaintiffs' lawyer, Jared Kelson asked "if...

    I was about 15 the first time I fell in love. It wasn’t until 25 years later, that I finally got married. It wasn’t that I hadn’t tried to get married before, because I had. I asked someone to marry me when I was 17. She said no. I asked 3 more girls over the next decade, same result! The funny thing is, in each of those torpedoed proposals, the girl was right. It would have been a disaster. Sure, I was in love, but it’s clear to me today that things would never have worked out. Every one of...
  • Fed Dead Redemption? A Fed-Induced Recession in 2H 2023 (50-BPS Hike On 12/14 Then Two 25-BPS Hikes In 2023)

    Confounded Interest ^ | 12/17/2022 | Anthony B. Sanders
    The Fed has signaled the terminal rate will likely be around 5% — we think an upper bound of 5% — reached in early 2023. To get there, the central bank will likely raise rates by 50 basis points at its December 2022 meeting, followed by two more 25-bp hikes in 2023. We then see it holding at 5% throughout the year. Markets have priced in a similar amount of tightening. Controlling inflation comes at a cost to growth. Yield curves have inverted. A Bloomberg Economics model shows a 100% probability of recession starting by August 2023. Take that —...

    This list only includes destroyed vehicles and equipment of which photo or videographic evidence is available. Therefore, the amount of equipment destroyed is significantly higher than recorded here. Small arms, ATGMs, MANPADS, loitering munitions, drones used as unmanned bait, civilian vehicles, trailers and derelict equipment are not included in this list. All possible effort has gone into avoiding duplicate entries and discerning the status of equipment between captured or abandoned. Many of the entries listed as 'abandoned' will likely end up captured or destroyed. Similarly, some of the captured equipment might be destroyed if it can't be recovered. When the...

    Louisiana and Missouri on Monday released the entirety of the November 23, 2022, deposition of Dr. Anthony Fauci as part of the lawsuit against the Biden administration and federal government, which Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) said confirms that “federal bureaucrats in collusion with social media companies want to control not only what you think, but especially what you say.”The lawsuit focused on allegations of federal officials colluding with social media companies to censor speech, and Fauci’s deposition, Landry explained, shows that “social engineering tactics were used against the American public, not to limit your exposure to a virus,...

    Matt Taibbi, who authored the first release of the infamous “Twitter Files,” is back for round two. Or at least he’s back to provide a supplement to round one while round two is still being worked on. According to Taibbi, James Baker, who was general counsel for Twitter and a former top-level FBI official, inserted himself into the disclosure in an attempt to “vet” the files that were ultimately released. Elon Musk was not notified of Baker playing middle-man. As RedState reported, Baker was fired on Tuesday, and with Taibbi’s latest thread, we now know why. I normally try to...
