    One of the sharpest critics of the American troop withdrawal from Afghanistan this past summer says the episode left the United States “showered with shame.” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who earlier said he can’t think of a bigger “mess up” in his lifetime than the way the Biden administration handled the evacuation of Americans and Afghan allies from Afghanistan, again criticized the removal in a Senate committee hearing Wednesday. The first-term senator said he wanted to talk about the decisions to go into Afghanistan and what lessons the U.S. might have learned or done differently. “But I can’t move on...
  • Self-Emptying Prayer

    Ancient Faith Ministries ^ | October 29, 2021 | Fr. Stephen Freeman
    We are told that Christ “emptied Himself” in His death on the Cross (Philippians 2:5-11). Further, we are told that this self-emptying is to be the “mind” that we ourselves have. It is possible to grasp that such self-emptying can be practiced in our dealings with others when we place them above ourselves – when the “other” is our greater concern. But how is this possible in prayer? How do we empty ourselves, when the largest component of our prayerful attention is unavoidably our very selves? Some might suggest that we should give our attention to God rather than to...
  • NBC's Chuck Todd to vaccine critics: 'Shame on you'

    Host of Meet the Press and NBC News Political Director Chuck Todd lashed out at people questioning the safety and efficacy of coronavirus vaccines, shaming them for unnecessarily putting people's lives in danger. “Nearly 10,000 people died [from the coronavirus] in the month of June. They were needless deaths," Todd said Thursday on MSNBC. "Please get vaccinated. If you know someone who is not vaccinated, find a way to convince them to get vaccinated.” The host grew visibly angry, his voice quivering as he pointed into the camera and directed his ire at politicians, activists and media personalities who have...

    Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib on Monday became the first active NFL player to come out as gay. “What’s up people,” Nassib said in a video posted to Instagram on Monday. “I’m at my house in West Chester, Pennsylvania. I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that I’m gay. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now but finally feel comfortable getting it off my chest. I really have the best life, the best family, friends and job a guy can ask for. “I’m a pretty private person so I hope you guys...
  • China's mutant monkeys: These are just two of the countless animals used in secret genetic engineering tests in labs – many with appalling biosecurity. No wonder so many experts say Covid DID leak from Wuhan research centre, writes JASPER BECKER

    Trees and wildflowers blossom during all four seasons in Kunming, which is known as The City of Eternal Spring because of its year-round mild temperatures. However, it is also home to something much less natural: a laboratory where scientists have been creating monkey embryos with a mutated gene so that, when born, they will age unusually fast. Such experiments are done to study human diseases such as autism, cancer, Alzheimer's and muscular dystrophy.
  • To Fight Racism, Should White Children Be Made ‘Uncomfortable’?

    If part of ‘doing the work’ to ‘dismantle systemic racism’ is to endure discomfort, how does that apply to teaching 'antiracism’ to small children?Years ago, I attended a play with the theme of racism. At curtain rise, two actors began berating the audience primarily made up of white people about how this work would make them uncomfortable, uneasy, and fearful. It is a very common theme in “antiracism” and critical race theory. But if part of “doing the work” to “dismantle systemic racism” is to endure this discomfort, how does that apply to teaching “antiracism” to small children? Should young...
  • Hunter Biden: Controversial Laptop 'Absolutely' Could Be Mine

    Hunter Biden admitted the laptop at the center of last year's controversy involving President Joe Biden and a Ukraine energy company "absolutely" could be his. The president's son was asked "yes or no" if the MacBook Pro dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019 was his, during an interview with CBS's "Sunday Morning." "I really don't know what the answer is, that's the truthful answer," Hunter Biden said in an excerpt of the interview released Friday, before adding, "I have no idea." Asked if the laptop could have belonged to him, he replied, "Absolutely." "Certainly, there...

    Hunter Biden has thrust himself back into the limelight. At this point, you have to seriously question whether he’s a masochist. Or he just needs the money. Could go either way. Prince Biden began promoting his to-be-released memoir, “Beautiful Things,” starting with an excerpt from the book recounting, in part, the attacks he faced from President Trump during the 2020 campaign.

    Ancient Faith Ministries ^ | March 15, 2021 | Fr. Stephen Freeman
    The Scriptures record that Adam was ashamed and hid. It’s a primal response. Shame is experienced as a burning sense of exposure and vulnerability. It begs to be clothed upon and hidden. It is possible to say that human beings have been playing “dress-up” ever since. This can be understood in a literal manner as we wrap ourselves in fashion statements or tattoo identities on our skin. It can also be seen in an extended manner as we borrow identities from the various “tribes” with which we identify ourselves. In a very personal way, it is a thought that enters...

    Macomb County Prosecutor says criminal charges possible against Governor Whitmer over nursing home deaths Criminal charges could be in the works against Governor Gretchen Whitmer over putting COVID patients inside nursing homes used as hubs early in the pandemic. New Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido says people who lost loved ones to COVID as residents or staff inside nursing homes should go back to get the vital information about the circumstances of their death and take that to local police and make a complaint as a wrongful death. Lucido says with HIPAA laws, he can’t get that information in his...

    I cannot remember the name of my kindergarten teacher. I cannot remember the names of any of my first grade classmates. However, I have a very vivid memory of the only word I messed up in a first grade reading group: cupboard. I read, “Cup board.” Old Mother Hubbard would have been dismayed. In the same manner, I remember the word that brought my spelling bee prowess to an end in sixth grade: restaurant. Silly things of no importance, and yet, such memories remain and can carry a sting with them. They are sorts of things that nurture and build...

    It is clear US President Joe Biden is not up to the task he has been “sworn in to do”, according to Sky News host Cory Bernardi. “Never before has the leader of the free world been so cognitively compromised,” Mr Bernardi said “It’s clear to me at the least that US President Joe Biden is struggling with dementia and is clearly not up to the task he’s been sworn in to do.” Mr Bernardi said it is something which was “evident” during the election campaign, but the “partisan and poisonous” mainstream media chose not to highlight anything which could...

    Dr. Tomás Aragón, who the SF Chronicle once described as “SF’s most powerful person in pandemic response,” is headed to Sacramento. Since 2010, he’s been the city’s health officer, which means that he’s been the final decision-maker on what’s been allowed to open and forced to close since the coronavirus crisis began. It’s a set of powers that SF’s City Attorney even laid out in May, after conflicts arose over who got to call the county’s COVID-19 shots. This morning, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that Aragón has been appointed Director of the California Department of Public Health, replacing acting director...

    SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CA — Health officials in Santa Clara County and across seven other Bay Area counties issued guidance Monday on Thanksgiving holidays and travel. Any gatherings should be "small, short, stable and safe," and ideally close enough to home to avoid long-distance travel, health officers said in a statement. The public can protect themselves by holding gatherings outdoors, wearing face coverings and keeping a distance from others who are not in their households. Don't forget to avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth, get a flu shot, and wash and sanitize hands often. If a gathering is important...

    With a surge in coronavirus cases approaching Silicon Valley’s peak numbers from July, local health officials today urged the public to step up prevention efforts by wearing masks, maintaining physical distance and staying home as much as possible. Calling the surge “a very worrisome sign,” especially heading into the holidays and flu season, county Public Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody said it may require officials to impose greater restrictions—unless the trend reverses. “It is not completely clear exactly what is driving the sharp surge that we’re seeing everywhere,” Cody told reporters, saying it might owe to heightened contact during Halloween...
