    CATCHING A SECOND WIND Cross country runners and other long distance runners have all relied on a "second wind" to finish their race; the longer the race the more "second winds" will be required. This physiological wind source is a timely aid in propelling an exhausted runner onward to the finish. The phenomenon of the "second wind" has a spiritual principle, too. When the purposes of God seem too distant to continue, God provides a "second wind" to propel his people onward to finish the cause in which they are engaged. Indeed: "They that wait upon the Lord shall...

    A Maryland district court denied parents’ appeal to reinstate an opt-out policy in Montgomery County Public Schools on Thursday. The case, Tamer Mahmoud v. Monica B. McKnight, hinged on whether the district’s May decision to rescind its opt-out policy for LGBT curricula violated parents’ right to direct the religious instruction of their children. The court concluded that, “the plaintiffs’ asserted due process right to direct their children’s upbringing by opting out of a public-school curriculum that conflicts with their religious views is not a fundamental right.” Parents sought a preliminary injunction that would authorize opt-out options once school begins on...

    The Israeli Air Force struck more than 70 targets across the Gaza Strip in the past day, the military says, as ground forces operate in Rafah, Jabaliya, and the Netzarim Corridor. According to the IDF, the targets included weapon depots, infrastructure, and buildings belonging to terror groups, as well as operatives. One of the airstrikes in Rafah hit a senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative, who the IDF says was head of logistics for the terror group in the city in southern Gaza. “As part of his role, he was responsible for preparing the enemy for the IDF maneuver in Rafah,”...

    Former President Donald Trump is surging with a voter bloc Americans might not expect. Black voters are flocking to Trump in huge numbers, while simultaneously leaving President Joe Biden, CNN's average of polls showed. Trump's support among black voters surged to 22 percent compared to 2020, when the 45th president only had the support of 9 percent of the demographic. Biden, on the other hand, saw his 81 percent of black voter support in 2020 dip to 69 percent.

    An Evansville man is now facing 20 years in prison for selling pills that led to multiple overdoses – one of which was fatal. According to the Department of Justice, Jeremial Leach used a Snapchat account under the name “Mel” to advertise pills laced with fentanyl. Snapchat is a social media platform known for storing images and videos for limited periods of time. Evansville Police say they were twice called to a home on Wedeking Avenue on June 25, 2022. The first time, they revived a woman with naloxone. The second time, they were not able to save a 19-year-old...

    Donors who once worried more about Donald Trump now see the president’s bid for a second term as the greater threat to America. Joe Biden’s threat last week to freeze arms shipments to Israel along with reports that his administration is withholding intelligence about Hamas leaders’ whereabouts has reverberated throughout U.S. politics. Now, some Never Trump donors say the Biden administration’s policy toward the Jewish state is such a betrayal they’re considering jumping on board the Trump train. Call it the rise of the Never Bidens, donors who once were more worried about Trump but now see Joe Biden’s bid...

  • The Big Three Election Integrity Issues for 2024

    There are three key issues that are being leveraged by those seeking to compromise Elections in America. The threat actors will constantly evolve to evade the security and remediation established to address the last successful play – so expect something different in 2024. Vigilance, awareness, and publicly addressing matters in a vigorous manner are a deterrent. The perpetrators behave differently when they know they are being watched. The most important factor in the November 2024 election will be the involvement of the citizen. For those wanting election integrity, the best thing is to become a sworn election officer and work...

  • Current fighting in Jabaliya is among the war’s ‘most violent,’ says IDF

    Times of Israel ^ | 5/17/24 | Emanuel Fabian
    Recent fighting in northern Gaza’s Jabaliya is being described by officers as some of the most intense amid the ongoing war, as Hamas operatives are launching massive numbers of RPGs at tanks and armored vehicles. Late Saturday, Israeli tanks of the 7th Armored Brigade rolled into Jabaliya, an area that the military had previously operated in and claimed to have dismantled Hamas’s battalions. The latest operation, however, is focused on areas deep in the Jabaliya refugee camp, which the IDF did not reach during the initial ground offensive. The IDF has so far reported killing more than 200 gunmen in...

A source close to the case tells AFP the man was wielding a knife and an iron bar before he was shot by police.
  • Study Finds Up to a Third of All Non-Citizens in the United States are Illegally Registered to Vote

    Based on the latest available data and an enhanced version of a stress-tested methodology from a scholarly journal, a new study by Just Facts has found that about 10 percent to 27 percent of non-citizen adults in the U.S. are now illegally registered to vote. The U.S. Census recorded more than 19 million adult non-citizens living in the U.S. during 2022. Given their voter registration rates, this means that about two million to five million of them are illegally registered to vote. These figures are potentially high enough to overturn the will of the American people in major elections, including...

    Rep. James Comer says House Oversight Committee looking for 'targeted financial information' House Committee on Oversight Chairman Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., announced a new legislative motion that aims to unveil financial information related to the Biden family. "This morning, I issued a subpoena for targeted financial information from a certain financial institution related to Jim Biden, Sarah Biden and Hunter Biden. This is a result of many of the documents that Devin Archer turned over," Comer said on "Mornings with Maria" Thursday. The new subpoena, which Comer claims will hopefully "answer every question [Congress has] had," comes just after another...

    The ship’s first power outage occurred after a crew member mistakenly closed an exhaust damper while conducting maintenance in port, causing one of its diesel engines to stall, according to the report. A backup generator automatically came on and continued to run for a short period — until insufficient fuel pressure caused it to kick off again, resulting in a second blackout. While recovering from those power outages, crew members made changes to the ship’s electrical configuration, switching to a different transformer and set of breakers, according to safety investigators. “Switching breakers is not unusual but may have affected operations...

    Ohio is taking action to secure the integrity of elections ahead of the contentious 2024 presidential election. Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose is urging the Biden Administration to grant access to federal citizenship information after removing “non-citizens” from the state voter rolls. During a review of voting registrations, LaRose announced that 137 non-citizens were registered to vote despite not being U.S. citizens. Following the discovery, LaRose instructed all 88 of Ohio’s county boards of elections to sift through their voter rolls for illegal immigrants. “These individuals will receive at least two written notices from the Secretary of State’s office...
