The lightning strike, which hit directly on George Floyd’s face, reduced the mural to a pile of bricks.

Previous dating attempts claimed it was made 9,500 years ago. ... The idol was originally dug out of a peat bog in the Ural Mountains in 1890. 'The first attempt to date the idol was made 107 years after its discovery, in 1997. The first...

    Gold prospectors first discovered the so-called Shigir Idol at the bottom of a peat bog in Russia’s Ural mountain range in 1890. The unique object—a nine-foot-tall totem pole composed of ten wooden fragments carved with expressive faces, eyes and limbs and decorated with geometric patterns—represents the oldest known surviving work of wooden ritual art in the world. More than a century after its discovery, archaeologists continue to uncover surprises about this astonishing artifact. As Thomas Terberger, a scholar of prehistory at Göttingen University in Germany, and his colleagues wrote in the journal Quaternary International in January, new research suggests the...

    … “I’m thinking about all those folks who, just for a moment, the nation shared their grief,” Glaude told MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace. “Oh, what a first step. What a beautiful step.” “I’m reminded of the Psalmist, you know, ‘He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds,’” Glaude added. […] “You know, we’re at a crossroads as a nation,” Glaude said. “It’s easy for us to place all of the blame on Donald Trump. He makes it easy for us, you know? He does. But there were 75, 74-plus million people who voted for him. Selfishness, greed, you know,...

    Q is the result of the sacrifices and commitment of countless patriots to win back our captured country from the Deep State and achieve the transformation President Trump promised in this campaign video. President Trump has said the awakening of the public is key to this transformation.Q describes this awakening as follows: "The Great Awakening ('Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and regeneration of individual thought (breaking the chains of ‘group-think’), but,...

    A Presbyterian Church (USA) congregation in New York made news this week after it featured the sculpture of a pagan deity in its chancel. The United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton hosted “the Sviatovid idol” which depicts a ninth-century Slavic deity, as part of a September 6-7 festival of lights. Sviatovid (alternately known as Svetovid, Svantovit, Sventovit, or Svantevit) was a local Slavic god of war, fertility, and abundance in the Baltic region. In the early twentieth century, an idol was discovered near the Zbruch River in Western Ukraine (accessible with free JSTOR account). This idol pictured was originally thought to...

  • Vanity: Ideas for expressing support to police

    07/11/2016 4:58:40 AM PDT · by uscga77 · 35 replies
    Looking for good ideas on how to express support and appreciation to our police. As a chaplain for 10 years I have seen them work up close to defuse family problems, befriend youth, contribute to the community as coaches, take dangerous drivers off the streets, deal with gangs and take on the bad guys. I have seen how the last thing an officer wants to do is discharge his weapon or even unholster it. But he or she does want to go home to his family. So any suggestions out there...

    'Twas the night before Smithmas, and all through the temple, Not a cumelon was creeping, or a tapir, (for ex-emple!) The garments were hung out to dry in the air, But fortunately for us, we have two extra pairs. The children were stashed at Gramma's homestead, While Mom and Pop got dunked once again for the dead! And Mom in her veil, and I in my old bakers' cap, Had just about finished another endowment wrap! When beyond the temple grounds I heard a big clatter Even sprang from my seat to see about the chatter; To the pentagram window...

    When Katy Perry was chosen as one of Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011, it should have been an honor. Instead, the "Dark Horse" singer was petrified that the esteemed journalist would discover her marriage to Russell Brand was on the rocks... I was just exhausted and stressed." "I'd prepped everyone that I was running late, but Barbara showed up at the original time anyway," the singer continues. "When I got there, I apologized immediately, but then she said to me, 'You know, I've only ever waited for one other person this long, and you know who that...

    "The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary. My confession: [Ben Stein] I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat... Or maybe I can put it another way: where...

    American Thinker ^ | April 19, 2012 | Rev. Michael Bresciani
    In America we elect presidents, we don't worship them. But the Weekly Standard blog offered a headline on April 17, 2012 that seemed to contradict this traditional practice. In a short piece by Daniel Halper the headline was "Michelle Obama: 'This President Has Brought Us Out of the Dark and Into the Light' If it were not a direct quote taken from Michelle Obama's rally speech at a campaign event in Nashville, Tennessee earlier the same day, we could only imagine that some virulent anti-Obama politico went too far and just made up a false and despiteful headline to hurt...

NewsBusters has compiled a video montage of this sickening slobbering over the man that ABC has sold out too. Wouldn't you have an orgasm too if you learned that your President is the karate kid?
