  • Jewish American army officer quits his intelligence agency job in protest over Biden's 'unqualified' support of Israel

    A Jewish-American Army Major has resigned from his post in protest at US support for Israel's 'ethnic cleansing' of Palestinians that has starved and killed 'tens of thousands of civilians'. Major Harrison Mann told CBS that Israel's response to the October 7 attack has 'turned the whole world against it' and imperiled the security of both Jews and Israel. The Defense Intelligence Agency analyst offered his resignation in November as casualties mounted in Gaza following Israel's invasion, and spoke out on Tuesday as he formally stepped down after 13 years. 'I'm confident saying it's certainly some measure of ethnic cleansing,'...

    Video making the rounds on local social media pages shows what appears to be a person hitting a dog in its face aggressively multiple times while on a leash outside of a South Dade home. But a woman who says she’s the mother of the person seen in the video says there’s more than meets the eye.
  • Cheney on Johnson at Trump trial: ‘Not that concerned with teaching morality

    Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) criticized Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) for showing up to former President Trump’s criminal hush money trial in New York on Tuesday. “Have to admit I’m surprised that @SpeakerJohnson wants to be in the ‘I cheated on my wife with a porn star’ club,” Cheney posted on the social platform X. “I guess he’s not that concerned with teaching morality to our young people after all.” Johnson appeared with other Republican lawmakers at the Manhattan courthouse where Trump is on trial for falsifying business records connected to an alleged affair with porn actress Stormy Daniels.

    The moral confusion of our time is therefore not new. Almost 3,000 years ago, the Prophet Isaiah lamented, "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter." But at the start of the 20th century, a new form of moral confusion was introduced. While there were always those who called good evil and evil good, shortly after Einstein discovered relativity in the natural order, Western civilization applied relativity to the moral order. As the late historian Paul Johnson wrote in "Modern...

    Interesting analysis this morning from Axios in a “Deep Dive: Inside the Mind of Gen Z.” The piece pulls together a bunch of data points and quotes from experts to provide a snapshot of a generation that, at least in my humble opinion, is in deep trouble.Here’s the key data from the Axios analysis: “By the numbers: Gen Z (defined as people roughly ages 12 to 27) reports the poorest mental health of any generation, according to a Gallup and Walton Family Foundation report.“Just 44% of Gen Zers say they feel prepared for the future. “The big picture: They dodged...

  • Life-Threatening STIs Are Spiking Across the US, Per CDC Data: ‘Out of Control’

    Health officials are warning that the rise of life-threatening sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is “out of control.” According to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, STIs are on a worrying rise putting millions of people’s lives at risk from entirely preventable infections. “STIs must be a public health priority,” the CDC warned on Tuesday. The health agency noted that “the most alarming concerns” revolve around syphilis cases — which are at the highest level they’ve been in more than seven decades. Reported chlamydia cases have remained at a record high level but gonorrhea cases did decline...
  • George Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation and the Nature of American Government

    American Thinker ^ | 11/29/2023 | E. Jeffrey Ludwig
    In October 1789, President George Washington issued a thanksgiving proclamation “to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor….” This proclamation was thus not merely self-congratulation whereby the President and others applauded themselves for creating a new government provided by our Constitution. At that point we were transitioning from the Articles of Confederation which had neither three distinct branches of government nor the idea of federalism embodied in its organization. Would the new Constitution work? Would the misgivings of some leaders prove to be...

    American Thinker ^ | 19 Nov, 2023 | Anthony J. DeBlasi
    Common to tyrants of humanity is that their ideas of social justice, having no ground in truth, make their relevance to justice approach zero. From time to time some in positions of power who claim to know better than all the rest of us act aggressively to silence those who hold to the truth, as to life itself. (The two, need it be said yet again, are vitally related.) Among such power-wielding know-it-alls the world has witnessed some of history’s worst traitors and tyrants, whose blot on the history of humanity is currently being ignored again at peril of another...

    It’s not ‘white supremacy’ among Catholics the FBI is really worried about, it’s traditional Catholic morality.It turns out the FBI memo targeting Catholics as potential domestic terrorists wasn’t limited to “a single field office,” as FBI Director Christopher Wray claimed under oath last month to Congress. In addition to the Richmond, Virginia, field office, the agency’s Los Angeles and Portland offices were also involved.The memo, which was leaked earlier this year, singled out what it called “Radical-Traditionalist Catholics” who attend parishes that offer the Latin Mass, which the FBI seems to think are hotbeds of “Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent...

    How far would you go to act on a principle or conviction that moves you? To what lengths would you sacrifice your financial security, well-being, and status to save other people’s lives? To what extent would you go beyond these things and risk your life in areas entrenched in life-threatening danger, knowing that you may never see your family again? Such is the story of Tim Ballard, in his quest to bust an international child trafficking ring. The Story: The movie begins with Homeland Security Special Investigations operative Tim Ballard (Jim Caveziel), whose career in breaking up child pornography and...

In addition, at the request of the French Bishops' Conference, theologians are working to make the institution's message on the subject more audible.

    Women in our society have traditionally been treated with a unique honor and respect. Were we always treated fairly? Not entirely -- there was a time when we couldn’t vote. There was a time when women couldn’t own property. True. But since forever men have been showing us, even in small ways, that what we have to offer society is paramount. We can make babies and without babies, mankind cannot fulfill even the most basic mandate -- multiply and fill the earth. In my misspent youth I found Gloria Steinem inspiring and myself ill-used. This phase petered out quickly because...

    A Florida bill targeting drag shows is on its way to becoming law. The Senate passed the bill Tuesday in a 28-12 vote. The bill prohibits children from being admitted to “adult live performances.” Opponents worry the bill could put pride parades at risk. An amendment filed last week bans cities from issuing permits for events that expose children to “adult entertainment,” which is defined as a performance that includes nudity, sexual conduct or lewd exposure.

    Why are some Americans having such a hard time figuring out what is happening to our country? And for those who do see, why are so few taking action? One in four Americans say they know someone who died from the COVID vaccine, and 50% now have less trust in government health experts. Sixty-seven percent say they "weren't surprised" hearing that COVID came from a Chinese lab. Why are we giving any of this "New World Order" nonsense any traction at all? Most voters agree that the FBI has been weaponized by the current administration, and 61% believe that government...

A liberal faction has secured an increasingly hostile takeover.Christians outside of the UMC, please share this article with any Bible-believing United Methodist friends, to show the urgency of quick action. Please also learn from our mistakes.Theologically conservative United Methodists, we have a soon-to-expire, perhaps once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lead our congregations out of a rapidly radicalizing, declining denomination without losing our church buildings, which are technically “held in trust” for the denominationSadly, some denominational officials and even pastors of conservative-leaning congregations suppressed information or actively misled...

    Aside from some grumbling from social conservatives, the Hyatt Regency Miami likely never dreamed it would suffer any consequences for hosting “A Drag Queen Christmas.” The sexually explicit celebration of our current societal obsessions took to the stage last December — with children present. After all, the big corporations have thoroughly internalized the principle that it is Leftists they must never offend, while they can infuriate patriots all day long. That’s why they’ve all gone woke.

    American Thinker ^ | 17 Feb, 2023 | M.B. Mathews
    The left have always leaned toward the elimination of restrictions on morality and personal behavior, up to and including in some cases pedophilia ("minor-attracted persons"), homosexuality, trans-sexuality, drag queenery, abortion, and pornography. Bestiality may well be next. It will be called "animal affinity" or something equally perverse. By contrast, the right, generally speaking, has leaned toward moral guardrails, behavior moderation, decorum, and biblical living. These are two very different and separate worldviews. The question is chicken-egg: do the people who love chaos, perversity, and libertinism gravitate toward the political and cultural left, or does leftism with its almost total lack...

    The term "Judeo-Christian values" is frequently used. I am one who uses it. I do so for the same reason the late great British prime minister Margaret Thatcher did: "The truths of the Judaic-Christian tradition," she said, "are infinitely precious, not only, as I believe, because they are true, but also because they provide the moral impulse which alone can lead to that peace, in the true meaning of the word, for which we all long...
