    For the past few years, many in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) have disregarded numerous warnings of their own. Many in SBC leadership pay little attention to the cracks in the denomination’s core. The latest is Rick Warren’s decision to appeal the SBC’s decision to kick Saddleback Church out of the fellowship. This is a tsunami warning for the SBC. There are some in SBC circles who regard Warren’s commitment to installing three women pastors at Saddleback Church as a clear violation of Scripture and the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.The crucial question is: Will the SBC heed the most...

    The Biden administration on Tuesday formally accused Russia of violating the New START arms treaty over what it said was Moscow‘s failure to allow inspections of weapons sites or agree to meetings on treaty disputes. President Biden agreed to extend the New START treaty — one of the last major arms control treaties still in force — for five years shortly after taking office in January 2021 — without seeking changes or concessions from the Kremlin related to its strategic forces buildup. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine barely a year later has put bilateral relations in a...

    Politics is often full of corruption and other money-related issues. This affects both parties, of course, but it’s the Democrats who have been found guilty of certain violations.This involves the Tennessee Democratic Party and a large six-figure settlement. It also highlights a lot of “misreported” money that didn’t go to the right places, and failure to report financial info.The end result — the DNC has admitted its guilt.Back in January, FEC commissioners voted unanimously that they had “reason to believe the Tennessee Democratic party” was in violation of the law.That’s because the Party reportedly “failed to report total receipts and...

    State court turns down Lantana’s attempt to dismiss suit over whether sky-high fines for minor violations violate the Florida Constitution.. WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.—This morning, a Florida court rejected the town of Lantana’s attempt to end a lawsuit filed by resident Sandy Martinez, who is contesting sky-high fines she was assessed for minor infractions on her own property. One parking violation, assessed daily for over a year, totals more than $100,000. The total amount the town fined her, which includes two other infractions, comes to an astounding $165,000, more than half what her home is worth. In February, Sandy teamed...

    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) has referred three counties for investigation for violating absentee ballot regulations, he announced Wednesday. Raffensperger referred Coffee, Grady, and Taylor counties for investigation after the three Peach State counties “failed to do their absentee ballot transfer forms in violation of Georgia Rules and Regulations,” per a release of the announcement. Absentee ballot drop boxes were permitted last year via an emergency rule, stemming from adjustments prompted by the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. “The emergency rule required counties with drop boxes to fill out ballot transfer forms that included the date, time, location, and number...

    In the abortion debate, there aren't many areas where the two sides agree. But shouldn't women's safety be one of them? Whole Woman's Health doesn't think so, and its latest inspection report proves it. The company's network of abortion centers is making headlines in Texas for subjecting mothers to third-world conditions that show just how little respect the industry has for the women it claims to protect.Over a six-year period, the Texas Department of State Health Services stumbled on one horrifying scene after another in the group's chain of facilities. Despite raking in millions from its abortion business, Whole Women's...

    Jack Webb, the co-franchisee of a Carl's Jr. in Alberta, Canada, was discovered to have committed multiple food safety violations while being filmed by in-store security cameras, CBC reported. The first clip of 10 shared with CBC shows Webb almost elbow-deep in barbecue sauce. Webb is mixing the sauce with his bare hands, a clear violation of food safety measures, going so far as to refuse a spoon when a worker offers it to him. Other clips show Webb mixing sauces and scooping them from one container to another with his bare hands. In one case, he uses a spatula...

    A nonpartisan watchdog group Thursday called for a federal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s campaign committee, accusing it of illegally accepting millions of dollars worth of “opposition research” and other assistance from Correct the Record, an outside super-PAC, in violation of U.S. election laws. The Campaign Legal Center also filed complaints with the Federal Election Commission to initiate probes of Donald Trump’s campaign, and two super-PACs backing it, for similar violations of laws barring “coordination” between political campaigns and outside groups. But the Campaign Legal Center’s detailed 52-page complaint against Hillary for America and Correct the Record — part of the...

    Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s latest insult directed at U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama, came on June 3, 2016. The Associated Press reported that Khamenei ruled out “any official cooperation with the U.S. against the Islamic State, their common adversary in Iraq and Syria, insisting that Washington remains a prime enemy of Tehran, despite a landmark nuclear deal with the U.S. and five other world powers.” To further add insult to injury, the Iranian regime showed their contempt for Obama and his nuclear deal by conducting missile tests and airing footage of an underground missile base on Iranian state...

    U.S. nuclear arms inspectors recently discovered that Russia is violating the New START arms treaty by improperly eliminating SS-25 mobile missiles, American defense officials said. The violations were discovered during an on-site inspection carried out in Russia in April, said officials familiar with details of the inspection. During the recent visit to a Russian missile base, U.S. technicians found critical components of SS-25s—road-mobile, intercontinental ballistic missiles—had been unbolted instead of cut to permanently disable the components. Additionally, American inspectors were unable to verify missiles slated for elimination had been destroyed. Instead, only missile launch canisters were inspected.

    Indiana is known for its targeting of truckers relative to the behavioral aspects of on-highway safety — no state devotes a larger share of its focus to ticketing and issuing warnings to drivers for moving-type violations. When officials in the northern part of the state in late June announced a weeklong “Operation Truck Stop” three-county enforcement effort during the July 4 holiday week along U.S. 20, a common Indiana Toll Road alternate, in late June, regular readers could have been forgiven for seeing little news there. As Overdrive‘s reports on the state made clear in the last year, such efforts...

    Letter to my Congressional Representative Legislative Staffers, please ask staffers of appropriate governmental affairs committees to introduce legislation regularizing and streamlining the process for innocent, small-businesspeople to recover assets summarily seized by the Federal Government for technically running afoul of "Structuring Violations" laws about "suspicious deposits", a governmental shakedown operation in which innocent victims have no hope of recovering the $100 millions of honestly earned assets improperly confiscated by tyrannical, run-amok government officials.

The city manager is claiming doing nothing wrong, but the emails claim otherwise
