    Youtube ^ | 1972 | Christian movies
    Set in the early 1970's, this is one of the most and widely viewed motion pictures of all time. A Thief in the Night tells the story of Patty, a young woman caught up in living for the present with little concern for the future. She meets and marries a young man and her life seems great, until one morning she awakens to find her husband gone and the radio reporting that millions of people have mysteriously disappeared. As dramatic, earth shaking events begin to unfold around her, Patty realizes she is living in the End Times spoken of in...
  • California Democrats, businesses back proposal to encourage COVID vaccine requirements(AB 1102)

    California Democrats are planning to introduce a bill that would protect employers who require their workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19, and lawmakers already have support from the state's most powerful business lobbyists. The exact language for Assembly Bill 1102 has not been published, but a circulating draft shows the measure would establish legal protections for employers who mandate the vaccine for their workers or require them to be regularly tested for COVID-19. The proposal aims to deter lawsuits from employees or job applicants who might seek to file discrimination claims against businesses with COVID-19 vaccine rules.
  • Accused Chicago cop-killer skirted jail days before deadly traffic stop

    One of two brothers accused of killing a Chicago police officer was on the street despite being charged in a hit-and-run months earlier while on probation, according to a report. Emonte Morgan, 21, whom prosecutors say admitted fatally shooting Officer Ella French, 29, during a Saturday traffic stop, allegedly slammed into a man in a crosswalk on April 9 — while he was already on probation for a 2019 robbery, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Morgan could have been sent back to jail at a court hearing set for Tuesday over the incident — some three days after he and his...
  • As Arizona audit winds down, auditors are still denied access to Maricopa County routers: County has claimed that turning over routers would constitute a security risk

    As the contentious audit of Maricopa County, Arizona's 2020 election results draws nearer to a close, audit officials still lack access to computer equipment that auditors believe is critical to ensure a full review of the county's records. Maricopa County officials in May refused to hand over routers requested by election auditors at the time, claiming that to do so would pose a security risk due to the county's intermingling of various departments on multiple routers. The routers "support [more than 50] departments, not just elections operations," including "critical law enforcement data that, by law, cannot be disclosed, as well...
  • Texas Democrat Lawmakers to Flee State, Risking Arrest, to Stop Republicans From Passing New Voting Laws

    At least 58 Democrat members of the state House of Representatives will flee Texas and head to Washington DC to block Republicans from advancing new voting laws through a special session of the legislature. Under the Texas Constitution, the lawmakers risk arrest by fleeing town during a special legislative session. The new bills, House Bill 3 and Senate Bill 1 will add new ID requirements for mail-in voting and ban some early voting – floor votes on both bill were expected to take place this week, but Democrats are fleeing in private jets to block the measures. NBC News reported:...

    Uploading personal photos to the internet can feel like letting go. Who else will have access to them, what will they do with them—and which machine-learning algorithms will they help train? The company Clearview has already supplied US law enforcement agencies with a facial recognition tool trained on photos of millions of people scraped from the public web. But that was likely just the start. Anyone with basic coding skills can now develop facial recognition software, meaning there is more potential than ever to abuse the tech in everything from sexual harassment and racial discrimination to political oppression and religious...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo has a parenting problem. Not with his own children, but with the 8 million incorrigible residents of Gotham, who refuse to bend to his will. He has tried everything: groundings, lectures, threatening to send them to bed without supper (at restaurants). And yet these ungrateful brats continue to question the more ridiculous of his ever-changing and often-irrational COVID-19 guidelines. And this is a problem for a man like Cuomo, who seems to fancy himself the Father of New York, much like a Central Asian dictator might think of his nation as his children.

    From the beginning of time, humans have used mythology to make sense of a chaotic natural world. Sir G.L. Gomme dubbed myths “the science of a pre-scientific age.” Folklore provided pre-scientific people a comforting sense of control over nature. To address dry spells, they deployed rain dances. Sunless stretches hindering crops prompted offerings to Helios. Then, our ancestors sat back and waited. The rains always came. The sun always reappeared, validating their “wisdom,” the illusion of control reinforced.

    "I wish to apologize to all the businesses that were closed this week," he wrote. "I am not supportive of these actions and, for San Mateo County, I believe they are misdirected and will cause more harm than good. This action is a bit like looking for your lost keys under a streetlight even though you lost them miles away. If you have read my previous statements, you know I put great import on balance. We have to minimize spread while not destroying everything else in the process." "For those who want to drive the spread to zero, this is...
  • California landlords are locking out struggling tenants. A 'tsunami of evictions' may be next(How long will this "crisis" go on?)

    Some California tenants have faced increasingly aggressive eviction efforts over the last month, despite emergency protections meant to preserve people’s housing during the coronavirus pandemic. And although advocates have urged state officials to strengthen the rules, key renters’ protections are set to expire without new state plans in place.The result, experts say, could be catastrophic.  Amid rising coronavirus infections and a worsening economic crisis, hundreds of thousands of renters are now at risk of becoming homeless in California, potentially exacerbating the state’s dire housing crisis. In addition, advocates fear the lack of protections will embolden some landlords to resort to...

    News feeds online have filled up with photos of used personal protective equipment strewn about on sidewalks, streets and other public areas. And beyond the obvious environmental impact, there's a larger concern that the once-worn items have touched contaminated surfaces and could pose a biohazard threat for those who eventually clean them up. "Gloves protect you against contact with infectious materials. However, once contaminated, gloves can become a means for spreading infectious materials to yourself, other patients or environmental surfaces," the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in its PPE guidance. The World Health Organization has said people are...

    The one size fits all solution is going to ruin us as a nation. This needs to stop!! Below are what I propose as a common sense approach to dealing with COVID-19. Breaking us up into risk groups makes sense, at least to me. Group 1: Ages 0-40 This group does not need to practice social distancing or change any behavior with respect to each other in this group. This group can work, play and go about their daily lives as normal with the exception of respecting the practice of social distancing with group 2, 3 and 4. Group 2:...

    It’s been a tough week for Mike Bloomberg. As Democrats were going to the polls in New Hampshire last Tuesday, video emerged of the former New York mayor defending his controversial stop, question, and frisk (SQF) policy by saying minority suspects should be thrown against walls. In addition, several stories came out with multiple allegations of sexism. So it’s no surprise that he is now… in second place nationally in a new poll and first in Virginia in another? If the opposition research dump was meant to halt his rapid rise in the polls over the past two months, it...

    Andrew Pollack calls the Parkland, Fla., school shooting “the most avoidable mass murder in American history.” Avoidable because of how the system refused to react rationally to years of warning signs about Nikolas Cruz. And the book Pollack, whose teen daughter was one of Cruz’s victims, has written with Max Eden shows that the same failure could occur almost anywhere in America. Excerpted in Monday’s Post, “Why Meadow Died” reveals educational records, like teacher daily diaries, tracking Cruz’s flagrantly psychotic behavior from an early age.

    The United Nations has called on Israel to back down after it advanced the construction of more than 2,300 housing units for Judea and Samaria communities. “The expansion of settlements has no legal effect and constitutes a flagrant violation of international law,” United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov said in a statement Wednesday. “By advancing the effective annexation of the West Bank, it undermines the chances for establishing a Palestinian state based on relevant UN resolutions, as part of a negotiated two-state solution.” Israeli construction “must cease immediately and completely,” he demanded. The plan...
