“Homegrown Demagogues”: Obama Accuses Trump of Threatening American Values

According to CNSNews:

In a term evidently aimed at Donald Trump, President Obama said Wednesday night that “homegrown demagogues” – along with fascists, communists and jihadists – threaten American values but would ultimately fail.

In a speech at the Democratic National Convention in support of Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations, Obama said that America has changed, but what makes Americans American was not where they came from or looked like but – pointing to his chest – “what’s in here.”

According to Benedict Brock of news.com.au:

Clintons 3It was a glowing tribute to his beloved wife, the woman who aims to make history by becoming President of the United States of America.

At the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Bill Clinton was fulsome in his praise of Hillary, who has now officially received the party’s nomination for the top job.

But there was something big – something huge – missing from his speech.

The former Mr President described the potential Mrs President as the “best darn change-maker” he’d ever met and recounted how he tried three times to get her to marry him, in a speech designed to use his popularity to ingratiate his wife to Middle America.

He took the crowd on a journey through the years of their relationship. It was 1971, he said, when he met the girl with big blonde hair and glasses.

What the Wikileaks Hacks Exposes About Democrat Media Bias

According to Philip Wegmann of The Daily Signal:

Debbie-Wasserman-SchultzLeaked emails seem to suggest that the Democratic National Committee maintains cozy relationships with mainstream media outlets but takes a more caustic approach with publications it believes to be conservative.

According to these emails, party officials stonewalled and blacklisted the Washington Examiner when editors approached the party in May to gather the names of delegates to the Democratic National Convention for publication in a souvenir edition of its magazine.

“I can send an alert to the state parties not to respond to this inquiry,” DNC Deputy Communications Director Eric Walker wrote in an email of May 10. “Examiner is a right wing rag.”

The episode came on the eve of Democrats’ convention this week in Philadelphia. The organization WikiLeaks released nearly 20,000 hacked emails from seven party officials, revealing the inner workings of the national committee’s communications team.

“Left Behind” Co-Author Tim LaHaye Dies After Suffering a Stroke

Church Leaders reports:

Evangelical leader and co-author of the popular Left Behind Series, Tim Lahaye, has passed away at the age of 90. A few days ago, LaHaye suffered a stroke that he was not able to recover from.

Jerry B. Jenkins, who worked with LaHaye on the Left Behind Series and consequently got to know him very well, described him as being someone with “a pastor’s heart [who] lived to share his faith.” Jenkins says, “He listened to and cared about everyone, regardless of age, gender or social standing. If Tim was missing from the autograph table or the green room of a network television show, he was likely in a corner praying with someone he’d just met—from a reader to a part-time bookstore stock clerk to a TV network anchorman.”

A Pastor Fights Against Government Restrictions on Political Sermons

The Daily Signal reports:

When the Rev. Gus Booth found out the IRS was dropping its inquiry into Warroad Community Church where he preaches, he was actually disappointed.

“We wanted to go to court,” Booth told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. “This is the First Amendment vs. the IRS code. One standard of the law would win.”

The IRS has almost never fully enforced the Johnson Amendment, which the new Republican Party platform calls for getting rid of. The language of the platform is:

Places of worship for the first time in our history have reason to fear the loss of tax-exempt status merely for espousing and practicing traditional religious beliefs that have been held across the world for thousands of years, and for almost four centuries in America. We value the right of America’s religious leaders to preach, and Americans to speak freely, according to their faith. Republicans believe the federal government, specifically the IRS, is constitutionally prohibited from policing or censoring speech based on religious convictions or beliefs, and therefore we urge the repeal of the Johnson Amendment.

According to Jasper Hamill of The Sun, “researchers said the number of machines is likely to grow so large that humans will need to command armies of them.”  Hamill writes:

Human beings are set to be “outnumbered” by robots as massive armies of intelligent machines move into the home and workplace.

TBN’s Holy Land Experience to unload furniture, statues amid financial turmoil

Holy Land ExperienceNot surprisingly, Word of Faith prosperity teacher Jan Crouch, who started Trinity Broadcasting Network with husband Paul, had amassed a fortune.  News reports reveal that Mrs. Crouch was worth $50 million at the time of her death in May.  Now her Newport Beach house is on the market for $4.6 million. “Dubbed ‘Villa Cielo,’ the four-bedroom house sits on an ocean-view hilltop in guard-gated Harbor Ridge, and boasts Calacatta marble, two kitchens and a ‘secret room.'”

According to Orlando Sentinel, the Crouch’s theme park, Holy Land Experience, is “struggling with a sea of red ink in recent financial reports.” As a result, “hundreds of ornate couches, thrones, nativity statues, costumes — and even a Harley-Davidson motorcycle,” are up for sale.  Moreover, the Crouch family are also in the process of closing gift stores in Tennessee and California.

An attorney for the network, John Casoria, said in an email that the not-for-profit companies have experienced a drop in revenue as TBN voluntarily ended the practice of live telethons to raise money in 2012.

“We have had to do some belt-tightening as well, which gives rise to the auctions and the closing of unprofitable gift stores,” Casoria wrote.

SCOTUS Sweeps Away Constitutional Liberties, Creates Nonexistent Rights

According to CNSNews:

Three recent Supreme Court decisions reveal in the area of personal rights, most of the justices are applying rules unrelated to the U.S. Constitution. In two of the cases, the majority refused to protect rights expressly laid out in the Constitution. In the third, the majority strained to protect a “right” that does not appear there.

The First Amendment protects “free exercise” of religion. In 1993, the Court held—correctly, I believe—when government officials target particular religious beliefs, they violate the First Amendment.
