    What did all you dads do today (or have planned)? Last week our oldest daughter and boyfriend took me to a wonderful South American restaurant called "Oyo" in Pleasanton, CA. It's a fusion of northeast South America (Guyana), Caribbean, and West African. Outstanding. We then took the Niles Canyon Scenic Railway ride which is really gorgeous. Today I got a nice phone call from our middle daughter in Spokane and we chatted a long while catching up. She and her husband are headed to the Oregon Coast for a week (and will meet up with oldest daughter and boyfriend). This...

    The NYPD is bracing for possible unrest to rock Monday’s star-studded Met Gala, law enforcement sources told The Post — as anti-Israel groups called for a “Day of Rage” protest at CUNY’s nearby Hunter College. Police security will be heightened in and around the Metropolitan Museum of Art as A-listers start descending on the iconic Upper East Side venue for the glitzy gala Monday evening, sources said. No specific threats have been identified so far for Fashion’s Biggest Night — but everything is on the table, a police source noted, adding that protests in the vicinity are widely expected. “We...

    Former Fulton County prosecutor Nathan Wade said Monday on “Good Morning America” that former President Donald Trump’s Georgia election interference case will get to a “day of reckoning.” Wade was required by the Judge to be removed from the case because of his relationship with District Attorney Fani Willis. Reporter Linsey Davis said, “One aspect Wade said he wasn’t prepared for was the intense public scrutiny and harassment he said he’s faced. You didn’t realize when you took the case your life was going to be under a microscope?”

    The phrase Day of the Lord (or variations of the phrase) is used in seventeen or so passages in the Old Testament (Isaiah 2:12; Isaiah 13:6-13; Isaiah 34:2-10; Jeremiah 46:10; Lamentations 2:22; Ezekiel 13:5; Ezekiel 30:2-4; Joel 1:15; Joel 2:1; Joel 2:11; Joel 2:31; Joel 3:14; Amos 5:18-20; Obadiah 1:15; Zephaniah 1:2 to 2:3; Zechariah 14:1; Malachi 4:5)—and in at least five passages in the New Testament (Acts 2:20; 1 Corinthians 5:5; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-2; 2 Thessalonians 2:2; 2 Peter 3:10). It is also alluded to in other passages (Romans 13:12; Hebrews 10:25; Revelation 6:17; Revelation 16:14). The exact count...

  • Presidents Day: 5 Presidents Who Warned Against Mass Immigration

    While presidents have long had disagreements on national policy, many agreed that unchecked immigration to the United States ultimately hurts Americans and those legal immigrants who have already arrived. Five presidents, in particular, have famously warned against mass immigration to the United States — despite their differences on a variety of other issues. In the early 1920s, President Calvin Coolidge (R) drastically reduced annual legal immigration levels to the United States, stabilizing the nation’s population following decades of record-high immigration. Coolidge, in a December 1923 address, said immigration levels must not exceed the ability of Americans to absorb new arrivals...

    Radical-left activist and former politician Nina Turner marked Presidents’ Day, the holiday officially named “Washington’s Birthday,” by attempting to vilify America’s first president and founding father as well as other early U.S. presidents. In a post from Monday, Turner, a one-time Ohio state senator and current Senior fellow at Institute on Race, Power and Political Economy, wrote: “Reminder: George Washington owned human beings.” Reminder: George Washington owned human beings. — Nina Turner (@ninaturner) February 19, 2024 In a follow-up post, she insisted “this President’s Day we must remember that 12 of the first 15 Presidents enslaved other human beings.” “We...

    President Joe Biden reportedly took his 418th vacation day on Wednesday to travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands for New Year’s. Biden had already spent 417 days (39 percent of his presidency) on vacation, according to the Republican National Committee’s Vacation Tracker. Biden’s “vacation” days include 100 of the 135 weekends in one of his two Delaware homes, at Camp David, or in Democrat billionaires’ mansions. Biden flew to St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands with several family members, though the White House refused to say how many members would join Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.

    This year I went to the Veteran’s Day celebration at my grandkids school, which does an outstanding job. I sat next to a 103 year old survivor of the Pearl Harbor attack. He was a PBY crewman, and somehow made it through the entire war. These reconnaissance aircraft were so vulnerable, that the squadron in the Guadalcanal area said their call sign of NNOK stood for “notify next of kin”. Neither of us could hear that well even with hearing aids, but we two Navy men had a grand time.Winston Churchill’s assessment of the attack is found on page 606...

    President Biden marked Transgender Day of Remembrance on Monday, calling the level of violence against transgender individuals “unacceptable.” “There is no place for hate in America and no one should be discriminated against simply for being themselves,” Biden said in a statement.“Today, on Transgender Day of Remembrance we are reminded that there is more to do meet that promise, as we grieve the 26 transgender Americans whose lives were taken this year. While each one of these deaths is a tragedy – the true toll of those victimized is likely even higher, with the majority of those targeted being women...

    Kate Smith first performed “God Bless America” the day before Veteran’s Day in 1938. She was a patriotic American, who wanted to encourage fellow citizens as they suffered through a terrible depression and saw a world being torn apart by Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. She wanted to reach Americans with the faith she felt for the future of the nation.As a leading performer in a radio market reaching nearly every household in the country, her way would be through song. So, Kate asked Irving Berlin to write a song that would cause citizens to embrace a positive perception of...

    Should we or shouldn’t we celebrate Columbus day? Every year the debate rages around this time whether the expansion of European civilization into the western hemisphere was a positive or negative development in human history.Of course Columbus himself was a complex figure, and there is much to love or hate about him depending on one’s point of view. The leftward side of the debate points out Columbus’s greed, ambition, pride and at times cruelty.And yet on the other side , one must admire the bravery, tenacity, and Columbus’ willingness to venture at great risk. Columbus also had a pious side...

    In short, March 14, 1891 there were several Italians on trial. They were found "not guilty" which sent a mob of thousands in a frenzy (along with government). In the end, 11 Italians were lynched and numerous others treated harshly. As a consolation to this tragedy, our government gave them a day---Columbus day. A mob of tens of thousands of angry men surrounded a New Orleans jail, shouting angry slurs and calling for blood. By the time they were done, 11 men would be dead—shot and mutilated in an act of brutal mob violence that took place in front of...

    Far-left Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) used Independence Day not to celebrate the ideals, risks, and sacrifices that led to the success of the great American experiment but to demand “reparations now.” July 4, the celebration of American independence and reminder of the revival of the very “Spirit of 1776,” appeared to be a dismal day for the leftist congresswoman, who seemingly dismissed the risks taken by the Founding Fathers and, rather, used the opportunity to demand reparations. “The Declaration of Independence was written by enslavers and didn’t recognize Black people as human. Today is a great day to demand Reparations...

    Monday is being called the hottest day in Earth's recorded history, according to climate change scientist Dr. Robert Rohde, citing National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data. The average global air temperature 2 meters above the planet's surface was 62.62 degrees Fahrenheit (17.01 degrees Celsius), which taken on average is not necessarily hot, but temperate. The previous record for the warmest day on Earth was set in July 2022 and August 2016 (62.46 degrees Fahrenheit or 16.92 degrees Celsius), The Hill reported. It has Rohde and the National Centers for Environmental Prediction forecasting more record-setting days to come in the next...

    Russia Day is a national holiday in Russia observed every year on June 12. When Russia Day falls on a weekend, a weekday holiday is typically announced in its place. When a holiday falls on a Tuesday or Thursday, it is common to announce an additional holiday on Monday or Friday. The day was originally called Russia Independence Day, and it commemorates the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the legitimate approval of the Declaration of State Sovereignty. Surprisingly, many Russians first misunderstood the significance of the occasion. However, many of them have come to see Russian Independence Day as...

    A number of Democrats across the country celebrated International Women's Day on Wednesday, despite having previously been either unwilling or unable to provide a definition of what a "woman" is. The apparent inability by many on the political left to provide a definition of a "woman" became a point of contention following now-Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson refusing to define the word when asked during her confirmation hearing last year. "Today, on [International Women's Day], we celebrate all the women around the world who lead the way, all while contending with the weight of parenting, cost of child care,...
