A Turn for the Worse: Tim Keller Announces He has Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer

(Protestia) Tim Keller gave an update on his ongoing health crisis and it is bleak. Keller was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June 2020 and thankfully was taking positive steps towards recovery, writing in November of 2020 that his recent CAT scans show continued improvement and the physician is “surprised” and “delighted” with the headway he is having as he burns through rounds of chemotherapy, calling his progress “incredible.” Continue reading

COVID vaccine mandates undermined by research sponsored by vaccine makers, feds

“The media have largely overlooked significant disagreement within the federal government about the efficacy of an antiviral alternative, ivermectin, in treating COVID-19, the subject of numerous court fights. One recently ended with victory for the dying patient, who quickly recovered once administered the anti-parasitic.”

(Greg Piper – Just the News) Recent COVID-19 research sponsored by vaccine makers and the federal government may actually undermine the rationale for vaccine mandates. Continue reading

Will the Public Finally See What Happened in the Capitol Tunnel?

“It is nearly impossible to underscore how devastating the release of surveillance video from the “Gates of Hell”…will be to the accepted narrative about January 6. Coupled with other instances of police misconduct that day, including the random and unnecessary use of explosive crowd control devices before any violence took place, January 6 will make LaFayette Square look like a day in the (federal) park.”

(Julie Kelly – American Greatness) For months, Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice has tried every trick in the law books to conceal from Americans a massive trove of video evidence that captured all the activity at the Capitol complex on January 6. Federal judges have played along, approving hundreds of protective orders to keep video clips—particularly footage recorded by the Capitol Police’s extensive closed-circuit television system—out of the public eye.

Illinois’ Esther Joy King After ‘Wild Wild West’ Afghanistan Rescue Effort: I Know People Who Are Still in Kabul

During the withdrawal, King said she “was part of the Wild Wild West civilian effort” and that she “got 51 young girls from [her] parents’ high school out of Kabul.” She added that she had a “front row seat to the horrors” that took place in Afghanistan, like “young 15-year-old girls being beat up by the Taliban because our State Department outsourced visa checks to Taliban hooligans right in front of the airport.”

(Ashley Oliver – Breitbart) An Illinois Republican with ties to Afghanistan said that she aided in the August U.S. evacuation efforts after Taliban forces took over the country and that she knows people who are still stuck there. Continue reading

Bags of Cash and Checks Found in the Walls of Joel Osteen’s Megachurch

Osteen is a controversial figure in the Christian world. His self-help Oprah-style prosperity-gospel religion is worthy of mockery and for the life of me I can’t figure out why he has so many followers. This guy does not need your money. Stop giving it to him. 

(Megan Fox – PJ Media) A Houston radio station broke some stunning news on Friday morning when a plumber called in to report that while doing some bathroom repair at Joel Osteen’s megachurch, Lakewood Church, he found around 500 envelopes stuffed with cash and checks in the wall behind the toilet. Continue reading

Heresy of the Last 40 Years: Hermeneutic of ‘Love’

Homosexual and transgender affirmation, feminism, antinomianism, the practical elimination of sin from the gospel and the subsequent need for a substitutionary atonement, and even the smuggling of CRT into the church, are the result of the hermeneutic of “love.”

(Greg Smith – Reformation Charlotte) This will be, as always, a highly abbreviated summation of a much larger topic for the sake of awareness and information. It’s impossible to do more than give a general sense in an article of this kind. Continue reading

Democrat Party’s Crime Spike Disproportionately Killing Black Lives

“Democrats deliberately reversed those gains for their own demonic reasons, primarily through their refusal to prosecute crimes. Once you stop prosecuting minor offenses, like shoplifting, you create a culture of lawlessness where criminals think they can do and get away with anything, which is basically true in Democrat-run cities.”

(John Nolte – Breitbart) The sudden rise in violent crime disproportionately hits black and Hispanic Americans, which is a surprise to no one who lives anywhere close to the real world. Continue reading

Australian Man Arrested For Escaping Covid Quarantine Camp

(OAN) An Australian man has been arrested after a large-scale manhunt ensued following his escape from a COVID quarantine camp.

Reports on Thursday found the 27-year-old man escaped from a COVID camp in Australia’s Northern Territory last Friday, after testing negative for the virus a day prior. The man jumped the fence and went to the city of Darwin before being arrested on Wednesday. This comes despite posing no risk of COVID spread. Continue reading

Our Hostile Government

“This whole “woke” enterprise as got to go—and that means starting now, not waiting for the 2022 elections and pinning our hopes on them. It’s got to stop. Must we sit on our hands while they wreck America?”

(Lee Luigon – News With Views) Apart from our country’s spiritual problems—which are at the root of all the other problems—we seem to have a hostile government. Continue reading

CIA Files Say Staffers Committed Sex Crimes Involving Children. They Weren’t Prosecuted.

“BuzzFeed News gained access to these documents after a decadelong pursuit, which included 13 public records requests and three separate Freedom of Information Act lawsuits.”

(Jason Leopold and Anthony Cormier – Buzzfeed) Over the past 14 years, the Central Intelligence Agency has secretly amassed credible evidence that at least 10 of its employees and contractors committed sexual crimes involving children. Continue reading

Feminists Take Abortion Pills Outside Supreme Court to Kill Their Babies in Disgusting Publicity Stunt

“Abortion drugs are dangerous for women as well as their unborn babies, and dozens of women have died. Recent studies found huge increases in emergency room visits in the U.S. and United Kingdom after women took abortion drugs.”

(Micaiah Bilger – LifeNews) A small group of abortion activists defiantly swallowed abortion pills Wednesday outside the U.S. Supreme Court as the justices considered a major abortion case that could overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to protect unborn babies from abortion again. Continue reading

‘Chinafication of Europe’: EU President Hints at Bloc-Wide Vaccine Mandate

(Peter Caddle – Breitbart) European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen has called for discussions regarding the implementation of forced vaccination throughout the entire EU, in a move that has been described as the “Chinafication of Europe”.

Just hours after the incoming chancellor of Germany said he was in favour of imposing mandatory vaccinations, Angela Merkel protegé-turned European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen appeared to follow suit, hinting on Wednesday that the entire bloc may seek to impose vaccine mandates. Continue reading

The Madness of Anthony Fauci

(Julie Kelly – American Greatness) It’s nearly impossible to select the most maniacal comment made by Dr. Anthony Fauci in his nearly 70-minute interview with “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan that aired over the weekend. Joe Biden’s chief coronavirus advisor and miniature global menace spent more than an hour denying responsibility for his documented mistakes, bragging about his self-appointed role as the world’s doctor, hogging credit for the vaccines, and attacking anyone who has challenged his unrivaled ego and track record of failure. Continue reading

Sweden: Get Your Covid Vaccine Passport in a Chip in Your Hand

“Microchipping is voluntary… for now, but give it some time and the Covid tyrants will make it mandatory in order for people to participate in society.”

(Christina Laila – Gateway Pundit) Over the last few years some Swedish workers have volunteered to have microchips implanted in their hands so they no longer have to carry cash, ID, keys, gym passes etc.

Microchips are gaining popularity in Sweden and now Swedes are getting Covid vaccine passports implanted in their hands or elsewhere under their skin. Continue reading

A Brief Guide to Leftist Destruction

(Dennis Prager – Townhall) To understand the modern world, perhaps the most important rule one needs to know is this: Everything the Left touches it ruins.

This first became clear to me years ago during my radio show. I was talking about the Left’s war on the Boy Scouts (for not accepting announced gay people). It was becoming clear that this would ultimately lead to the decline of the Boy Scouts, which led me to ask: “Will the left replace the Boy Scouts with a left-wing Boy Scouts?” Continue reading

Supreme Court Determines the Fate of Roe v. Wade

Baby at 15 weeks. babycenter screenshot

(Chris Queen – PJ Media) On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a Mississippi law that makes abortion illegal after the first 15 weeks of pregnancy. It’s been called the “biggest abortion case in decades,” and it may serve to prove how effectively Donald Trump delivered on his promises to appoint Supreme Court judges who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

This case isn’t the first abortion case the Court has begun to hear this term, as Amy Howe reports at SCOTUS Blog: Continue reading

Does Prayer Change God’s Mind?

Does prayer make any difference? Does it really change anything? Someone once asked me that question, only in a slightly different manner: “Does prayer change God’s mind?” My answer brought storms of protest. I said simply, “No.” Now, if the person had asked me, “Does prayer change things?” I would have answered, “Of course!”

The Bible says there are certain things God has decreed from all eternity. Those things will inevitably come to pass. If you were to pray individually or if you and I were to join forces in prayer or if all the Christians of the world were to pray collectively, it would not change what God, in His hidden counsel, has determined to do….

ALARMING Study: COVID Regulations, Masking May be DRASTICALLY Lowering Kids’ IQs

“While IQ is said to be two-thirds heritable, this leaves one-third environmentally influenced. It has long been known, too, that children raised in both material and intellectual poverty have lower IQs than kids in more optimal settings; moreover, it has been shown that lifestyle improvement can cause a group’s IQ to rise precipitously over time.”

(Selwyn Duke – The New American) Studies have shown that abused children end up with impaired cognitive functioning. Now consider that kids born shortly before the COVID-19 situation and enduring its regulations also, according to new research, have impaired cognitive functioning. Continue reading

‘More money than God’: Chinese titan lavished Hunter Biden with 3-carat gem, offer of $30 million

Excerpted from “Laptop from Hell: Hunter Biden, Big Tech, and the Dirty Secrets the President Tried to Hide.” New York Post columnist Miranda Devine tells the tale. “The Biden grift story is full of evil, and no matter how many times the press tries to kill it, it keeps coming back to life.” – Stephen Green

(Marinda Devine – NY Post)) James Gilliar, a wiry, 56-year-old British ex-SAS officer, got to know Ye Jianming, the 40-year-old chairman of CEFC, when they were both working in the Czech Republic. Continue reading
