  • Washington Post journalists strike seeking rises 'that keep pace with record-level inflation' while paper CELEBRATES 'miracle year' for Biden economy

    Washington Post staffers walked off the job last week to protest their salaries failing to keep up with record inflation - despite the outlet repeatedly celebrating President Biden's 'miracle' economy. The strike on December 7 came after 18-months of negotiations failed to deliver a 'living wage' in that keeps pace with soaring prices, the paper's union said. Staffers released a much-criticized video explaining their reasons for going on strike, feeling they are 'worth raises that keep up with inflation' because they covered issues including the pandemic, climate change and the Ukraine war. But just days before the strike, the Post...
  • I was suicidal on Ozempic — it’s not a miracle weight-loss drug for everyone

    Amelia had been intent on losing weight most of her life — but this concern had never caused the 35-year-old to consider ending her life. Last summer, the Canadian woman was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and prescribed the wildly popular “miracle” drug Ozempic (semaglutide) by her doctor, who presented the drug as an easy way for Amelia to shed a few pounds and manage her blood sugar. Amelia, who asked that her last name be withheld for privacy reasons, avoided filling the prescription for three months since she “didn’t want to focus on the number on the scale.” However,...

    The greatest miracle that ever occurred happened in the very first verse of the Bible — Genesis one. God created the heavens and the earth. If God could speak the universe into existence, create the universe Ex-Nihilo — out of nothing, could He part the Red Sea? Can He raise a man from the dead? Of course! That’s child’s play for Him! If God exists, and he does, then miracles are possible. There have been countless accounts of them.What is a miracle?Richard Purtill, a philosophy professor at Western Washington University, defines a miracle this way:“A miracle is an event brought...
  • The country was misled on a vital matter-and it wasn't Boris Johnson's parties (Ukraine)

    The inflated grandees of Parliament's Privileges Committee are currently pondering the vast issue of whether Al "Boris" Johnson misled the Commons about some office parties... there is a far more important case in which a senior Minister needs to answer charges of misleading Parliament... This country's attitude towards events in Ukraine is based on a slavish decision to do what the Americans tell us to do, rather than on any serious estimate of our own national interest. I believe this may drag us into prolonged war. Even the poor King must take part, forced to say during his German visit...
  • Miracle in Netanya: Arab arrested after stabbing attack, no one injured

    Following the arrest of an Arab in the coastal city of Netanya who was found with a knife in his possession, it has emerged that a potentially serious terrorist attack was averted by a miracle, with no one injured. Last week, Netanya's special anti-crime police unit began the interrogation of the Arab, who was apprehended after local police received reports of a suspicious individual roaming a central promenade in the city armed with a knife and apparently attempting to stab passers-by. Police were quickly dispatched to the location where they detained the Arab, a man in his twenties from Samaria,...
  • Could you ever prove a miracle to a non-believer?

    [EXCERPT ONLY] In 2009, on a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, the Browns flew to Mozambique to investigate the healing claims of Global Awakening and Iris Global, two ministries focused on healing and revival. They brought audiometry equipment and eye charts to test people who requested prayer for deafness and blindness. The sample size was small — they tested 24 people — but they found statistically significant improvement beyond placebo effects and hypnosis. “I was standing right there next to this woman who could not tell how many fingers were held up when you were a foot in front...
  • New Hybrid Virus Discovered as Flu And RSV Fuse Into Single Pathogen

    Researchers have witnessed two viruses – influenza A and respiratory syncytial virus – fuse together to form a single, hybrid virus. While competition between viruses has been researched in some detail, this new finding provides researchers with an unusual example of one virus coopting another for its own benefits. "This kind of hybrid virus has never been described before," virologist and senior author Pablo Murcia told The Guardian. "We are talking about viruses from two completely different families combining together with the genomes and the external proteins of both viruses. It is a new type of virus pathogen." The hybrid...

    The family entered the Beit Hanina neighborhood in the east of the city with their car and 3 toddlers in it and were pelted with stones. "A mob of Arabs blocked our road and started pelting us with rocks." The event ended without casualties. Meanwhile, during a night of severe riots in East Jerusalem, Molotov cocktails were thrown at police vehicles in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. The Jerusalem sector continues to heat up: a Jewish family was saved this evening (Wednesday) from a lynching attempt that took place in the Beit Hanina neighborhood in the east of the capital....
  • The Oil That Never Failed...Elijah pt 20

    Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the Lord: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen. And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil. Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels;...

    When Constantine entered Rome on October 28, AD 312 after crushing the superior forces of Maxentius at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge, it marked the end of one era and the beginning of another. There are several accounts of the battle and its aftermath recorded in ancient times, and two in particular stand out as being written by immediate contemporaries who certainly spoke with the participants. One of those who recorded the battle was Lactantius, a scholar who had served at the court of Diocletian and later became the tutor of Constantine’s son, Crispus. Here is his account as...

    Sometimes, prophetic visions can appear in plain sight and still go largely unnoticed. Such was the case when a post appeared on Tik Tok showing the eastern retaining wall of the Temple Mount, an area bordered by a major thoroughfare. The ancient stones of Jerusalem host a variety of plant life including the prolific Throny Caper. Batya Vagshal, a religious Israeli woman, was shocked to see that the plants had grown to form the shapes of letters. The letters seemed to be ‘written’ in ktav ashuri, the calligraphy style used in writing sacred texts. Three letters were clearly seen: י...

    In all the excitement among objective journalists for Joe Biden’s declared victory, reporters are missing how extraordinary the Democrat’s performance was in the 2020 election. It’s not just that the former vice president is on track to become the oldest president in American history, it’s what he managed to accomplish at the polls this year. Candidate Joe Biden was so effective at animating voters in 2020 that he received a record number of votes, more than 15 million more than Barack Obama received in his re-election of 2012. Amazingly, he managed to secure victory while also losing in almost every...

    There are three accounts in the New Testament of Jesus Christ feeding a multitude of people with a handful of loaves of bread and a few small fish. In the Gospel of Matthew, the number of people is listed as 4,000. In the Gospels of Luke and Mark, the number is stated to be 5,000. According to all three gospels, large crowds of people follow Jesus into a remote area, where he preaches to them for several hours. (The account in Matthew says that the crowds are with Jesus for "three days"). Christ's disciples advise him to send the crowds...

    In about AD 530, when Italy was ruled by the unstable successors of the Ostrogothic king Theodoric immediately prior to the Byzantine re-conquest, many noblemen of Rome entrusted their young sons to Benedictus, a holy monk who lived in the mountains of nearby Subiaco. One such boy was Maurus who is identified by Saint Gregory the Great as the son of a noble named Evitius. Another was Placidus, who was brought by Tertullius, a senator. These two were among earliest disciples of a man who would be known to history of St. Benedict of Nursia. Writing about 60 years after...

    Constantine's great victory at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge took place on October 28, AD 312. The day before — October 27 — is the date traditionally given for the miraculous vision and dream which Constantine experienced prior to the battle. This vision has been the subject of debate in both scholarly and popular imagination for hundreds of years. But what really happened on that day 1,705 years ago that changed forever the course of human history? As a prelude to the famous accounts of this vision, it should be noted that Constantine also seems to have had pagan...

    The doctors who’ve been treating the little boy who was thrown over a third-floor railing at Minnesota’s Mall of America on April 12 are apparently astonished by how well the child is recovering. Mac Hammond, a pastor from the boy’s family’s church, said the child, named Landen, endured a five-hour MRI last week, which showed his injuries were not as bad as originally thought. Hammond told his parish Sunday that one of Landen’s doctors commented that the shape the boy is in, given what happened to him, is “truly a miracle.” According to Hammond, the medical team said Landen’s injuries...

    The five-year-old boy thrown from the third floor of the Mall of America is amazing his doctors. According to Mac Hammond, a pastor at the family's church, the boy recently underwent a five-hour MRI test. FOX 9 obtained a video of Pastor Hammond's Easter service in which he provides an update on the boy's condition. "There was zero evidence of brain damage - there wasn't even swelling," Hammond said. "No spinal chord injury, no nerve damage, no internal injuries that were life-threatening." Hammond said that the boy did suffer several broken bones. The pastor also said a doctor compared the...
