    The school district police chief who held officers back during Tuesday’s chilling massacre is set to join the Uvalde City Council, according to reports. Officer Pete Arredondo’s bungled orders resulted in the slowed response of at least 19 cops at Robb Elementary School, where a gunman opened fire and killed 19 students and two teachers, according to NBC News.

    The White House ignored calls Tuesday for an independent special counsel to investigate President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s shady foreign business deals. White House press secretary Jen Psaki indicated a special counsel was not needed because Biden had not discussed the investigation into his son with his Department of Justice (DOJ).

    President Joe Biden will convene the National Security Council on Sunday amid soaring international tensions over the expected Russian invasion of Ukraine, the White House announced. The meeting will take place one day after Russian leader Vladimir Putin oversaw missile drills in an apparent display of military might as violence was reported in Ukraine regions under the control of pro-Moscow separatists.
  • Ottawa Official Who Demonized the Freedom Convoy Gets Her Just Deserts

    We’ve been bringing you a lot of the crazy that various authorities have directed at the Freedom Convoy. Justin Trudeau has been right up there at the top with demonizing the Convoy. But, perhaps no one has been worse than Ottawa city councilor Diane Deans, who’s the chair of the police services board. Deans claimed the protest was an insurrection — that the protesters are terrorists and it’s not mostly rural Canadians behind it, but Americans seeking to overthrow Canada’s democracy. That’s how unhinged it has been in the Zoom meetings on the subject. While she’s not the only unhinged...

  • Rantz: Seattle’s socialist councilmembers collectively worth over $3.5 million (one-percenters)

    My Northwest ^ | 4/27/21 | Jason Rantz
    Socialists on the Seattle City Council have taken advantage of our capitalist system, getting wealthy off the low-income voters they claim to fight for. In fact, Socialists Kshama Sawant and Tammy Morales are collectively worth over $3.5 million. In Washington state, they’re both one-percenters: the very people they regularly demonize. Councilmembers must submit financial disclosure forms every year. It allows the public to see any potential conflicts of interest. But it has the added bonus of highlighting how many get wealthy off their socialist grift. It turns out, the only way socialism works, apparently, is selling your brand to kids...

    <p>It’s a painful lesson we learned with the truth about what caused of deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods. Rice knowingly lied to cover up the mistakes made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then Vice President Biden and President Barack Obama, who failed to fulfil their duty and protect the lives of Americans overseas. Ambassador Rice made the rounds on five Sunday morning talk shows spreading lies of how the coordinated attack on a U.S. compound was sparked by a video no one ever saw nor heard.</p>

I am happy to respond to your questions, which address matters that are very important for the faithful.

  • Defunding Seattle Police by 50% proving complicated for council

    Crosscut ^ | 7/31/20 | David Kroman
    Much has been made about the “veto-proof” majority of Seattle City Council members who committed on Twitter and elsewhere to cutting 50% of the Seattle Police Department’s budget. But in the near term, the reality is proving more complicated. On Friday, council members for the first time offered specific proposals and timelines for cutting the department’s budget and creating alternative systems to prevent violence and provide community safety. They also urged Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best to prioritize responding to violent crimes and to deprioritize calls that could disproportionally impact communities of color. Only one council member, Kshama Sawant, proposed...

    Every member of the eleven-person council has progressive political ideologies, something that’s made clear by the accessories many of them wear inspired by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Austin City Council Members are nonpartisan in that they don’t run as Democrats or Republicans. A city spokesperson pointed KXAN toward the Texas Election Code which indicates that all local governments in Texas run nonpartisan elections by default, Austin just hasn’t chosen to authorize partisan candidacy... Council Member Allison Alter added that the RBG accessories were, “one small way to show solidarity amongst ourselves.” Alter also pointed out that many...

    A Berkeley City Council member rebuked an invitation on Thursday to appear on Tucker Carlson's show, calling the Fox News host a "white supremacist goblin." Rigel Robinson shared a screenshot on Twitter of an email exchange with Chelsea Gilman, a booker for Carlson's show, who asked him if he would appear on the show to discuss the city's decision to rename manholes "maintenance holes." Robinson, who co-sponsored an ordinance to remove all gendered language from the city's code, thanked Gilman for her offer before offering a scathing criticism of Carlson. "Unfortunately I won't be able to come on the show,"...

    The San Diego City Council voted six to two Monday for an ordinance saying gun owners must lock up their firearms or disable them in the home. Fox 5 reports that the council’s six Democrat members all voted for the gun control, which is designed to force firearms to be locked up or be disabled even if no minors are present in the home. ABC 10 reports that gun owners cannot legally store their firearms in just any lockbox, but they must be in a “Department of Justice-approved lockbox.” No indication was given for how much a DOJ approved lockbox...

Heiser FARMS Review 19/1 (2007): 221–66. 1550-3194 (print), 2156-8049 (online) Heiser discusses Psalm 82 and the interpretations of Elohim that Latter-day Saints and evangelicals derive from that scriptural passage. Heiser then offers alternative interpretations from his own study. "Over the course of the last eight years I have read several papers dealing in one way or another with that feature of Israelite religion known as the divine council. Anyone doing serious research in Israelite religion is soon confronted with the powerful evidence...

    At the same time that localities across the country are in the process of erasing monuments to Confederates and slave-owners, New York City is preparing to honor a black man who ordered the murder of every white man, woman, and child under his control, resulting in 3,000 to 5,000 race homicides. Seth Barron reports at City Journal: In New York City, street co-namings – in which a thoroughfare takes on an additional, ceremonial name in honor of a distinguished figure – rarely generate much fuss, and their approval is typically pro forma.  But yesterday, a city council committee voted to co-name...

    At an event in the White House, flanked by several members of Congress and industry officials as well as Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Trump signed the executive order that re-establishes the council, last active at the end of the administration of President George H.W. Bush in 1993. ... Trump had previously announced that Vice President Mike Pence would serve as the head of the space council once it is reestablished. Pence stated on several occasions, dating back to the signing of a NASA authorization bill in March, that the president would soon sign the order re-establishing the council, with...

    How about Session creates a Prosecutor to look into Russian Hacking and interference including Trump thing IN PARALLEL to the other slow moving money draining sketchy biased Mueller council. Trump can be like “You know this is taking very long, and I want to make double sure that this is taken care of”. This would be a more pro Trump prosecutor to look into the issue. This would be fair. They can after a short period of time exchange information. Trump can’t get rid of the current prosecutor (or feels enough pressure not to). Well, this may be a solution...

Charles Pope • May 17, 2017 • The first readings at daily Mass this week recount the Council of Jerusalem, which scholars generally date to around 50 A.D. It was a pivotal moment in the history of the Church, because it would set forth an identity for Her that was independent of the culture of Judaism per se and would open wide the door of inculturation to the Gentiles. This surely had a significant effect on evangelization in...
