News of the Day

I’m bombarded daily by news. It starts in the morning with husband’s look at the weather, today’s and the week. Then world/national news and local shootings and traffic accidents with a house fire or two through the night.

There isn’t any good economic news. The nation is set to collapse. The world is set to collapse too. Governments seek to ‘fix’ everything. Though, it’s the people who can make a difference, not rulers, presidents, representatives.

But we’re drowning in laws, regulations. We’re working hard to keep our heads above water and care for our families. But prices on everything are going up and our retirement savings have been taken away by stock market drops. There’s no place to put anything saved. We lose our principle in every place we used to sock a little money.

I’m looking for a person to run for president who will tell me there is hope. Real hope. Hope for my country. Hope for my family. Hope for the world. After Mr. Cain suspended his campaign, I see no one that fits that bill.

So I’ll just lean on Jesus. And do what I can to take his Gospel to those in need. I don’t know what others do without Him. He’s the only sanity in my world. He’s the only one with Good News. ♡♡♡

Is. 40:9 You who tell good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain; you who tell good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with strength; lift it up, don’t be afraid; say to the cities of Judah, Behold, your God!

American’t: From Midterms to End Times

By Selwyn Duke

Truly great disasters come like a thief in the night. How many foresaw Rome’s sacking in 410 A.D., her collapse 66 years later, WWI or WWII? As for today, how many see that the United States is at what some call a tipping point, what others may call a Fourth Turning? Whatever you call it, the American republic is in its last days. This is too scary for many to contemplate, but there’s something far scarier: playing ostrich and not being prepared for things to come.

The so-called Left, ever violent since its French Revolution birth and as power hungry as ever, wholly controls the culture: the media, mainstream and social; academia; and entertainment. This means it controls long-term politics…

Learned Helplessness

Doing the Work

DSC_0429

Quite a few years ago, I was idling away some time reading the then-current issue of The Chronicle of the Horse magazine (a weekly sport-horse publication). While skimming a pretty dry article about the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) annual convention, I ran across a mention of a guy named Andrew McLean who had been invited to speak to the attendees about the possibility that a thing called “learned helplessness” might be causing “dullness in dressage horses.” I didn’t think another thing of it, skimmed the rest of the magazine and threw it out.

A year later, I found myself in much the same position, at the same time of year, skimming articles in The Chronicle. There was another article about that year’s USDF convention, and another mention of Andrew McLean. But this time, reading between the lines, it sounded like they’d invited him back to take back what he’d…

More Dems worried about the midterms than R’s

Republicans Seen as Likely to Retain Control of the House and Senate

In separate questions, Gallup asked Americans which party they thought was likely to retain control of the House and the Senate. Half of Americans say Republicans will retain control of the House, while 44% say the Democrats will take control.

************************************************************

Gallup has asked U.S. adults which party would win control of the House in that year’s midterm elections in 10 such election years between 1946 and 2014. Notably, in each one, Americans’ prediction came true, although the current six-percentage-point gap in the Republicans’ favor is the narrowest in the trend.

Read the entire report from Gallup.

I thought it interesting that this poll always predicts who will win and this year it’s R’s.

Winning Argument

Winning Argument

Why aren’t we using the winning argument? The Democrats are anti-Christian.

Just for the moment.  Forget about Trump.  Forget about the Wall.  Forget about the “Caravan.”  The case to make against the Democratic Party to the American public is simple.  It begins with simple questions.

Who has fights to stop prayer in schools?  Who has attacked Christmas?  Who tried to ban Bibles?  Who booed God at their convention?  Who sued to put Christian bakers out of business?  Who sued to force Nuns to violate their beliefs?  Who wants certain Christian doctrine banned as hate speech?  Who is constantly trying to get rid of Crosses and Manger scenes?  Who said the church must evolve?  Who said that religious beliefs must be changed?  Who worked to ban Christian clubs on campus?

The winning argument is plain and simple: The Democratic Party is anti-Christian. 

John Hawkins said, “The GOP often foolishly retreats from social issues. This is a huge mistake in an era when 76% of the country is Christian and most liberals find sincere Christian beliefs to be repellent. We don’t have to preach at anyone, wag our fingers, or turn into legions of Ned Flanders, but we shouldn’t be afraid to talk about our Christian beliefs, stick up for Christians who are under attack, and hammer the Left for its anti-Christian bigotry. Conservatism is a pro-Christian ideology and liberalism is an anti-Christian ideology. We should never be afraid to drive that point home.”

And where do the Democrats turn to get outside help?  Witchcraft.  They did not hold a prayer vigil against Judge Kavanaugh—they had witches conjure up a spell.  I don’t think they believe in witchcraft.  They chose witchcraft for no other reason than it is anti-Christian. And for good measure the witches gave a big donation to Planned Parenthood.  Human sacrifice has always been a part of witchcraft.

Why are we afraid to zero in on this greatest of all arguments against Democrats?  Are we more concerned about appearing unloving than we are about our religious freedom being destroyed?

This mid-term election is solely about the kind of nation you want your family to live in.  Do you want freedom of religion or government openly hostile to your faith?

You need to wake up brother and sister and use our best argument.   Your commitment to Christ should come before your race and gender.  This is not a left-right or conservative-liberal debate.  This is totally a case of…are you pro or anti Christian?   We didn’t make it that way, they did.

This Sunday is the last sermon before the midterms.  Every pulpit should make this point: Your vote can’t get any more moral.  We can’t make a better argument.  The Democrats are at war with Christianity.

Dear Joel Mathis: Liberalism, Not Nationalism, Killed Compassion in America

Pesky Truth

blank Here is a photo of what the “free” press allows me to freely use when I look for images of the illegal immigrant caravan/invasion heading to America.

In his essay published in The Week magazine, self-described “liberal” Joel Mathis ponders the question, “Has nationalism killed compassion in America?”  The piece is an unintentional tribute to Ronald Reagan’s famous quip, “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”  Follow along, and you’ll see what I mean.  My remarks are in red.

By Joel Mathis

There’s been some heavy lifting lately, in the non-Trumpist precincts of our politics, to rescue the idea of “nationalism” from the clutches of President Trump and his alt-right followers. Lest liberals and progressives be tempted to throw the baby out with the bathwater, we’re reminded in books and essays that nationalism has…

Arrested in Mall of America for being Christian

Ex-Muslim Christian Pastor, Refugee From Iran, Arrested for Sharing His Testimony — in Minnesota

BY TYLER O’NEIL SEPTEMBER 4, 2018

Late last month, Ramin Parsa, a Christian pastor who fled Iran as a religious refugee, was arrested for privately sharing his faith testimony in the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. He fled persecution in Iran and Turkey, only to find persecution in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

“I came to the U.S. as a political and religious — as a Christian — refugee. They oppressed me for my faith in Iran. I was stabbed in Iran,” Parsa told PJ Media in an interview on Tuesday. Then last week, he was arrested for a private conversation about his faith, handcuffed to a metal chair for four hours without water, and later charged with trespassing.

“These things might happen in other countries, oppressive dictatorships, but not in America,” the pastor said.

Parsa, a pastor at Redemptive Love Ministries International in Los Angeles, Calif., traveled to Minnesota for two days to visit two different churches. He went to the Mall of America (MOA) on Saturday, August 25, with an elder from one of the churches, and with the elder’s 14-year-old son. Shortly after entering the mall, he struck up a conversation with two Somali-American women.

“Our conversation was casual. At first, we were not talking about the gospel,” Parsa recalled. “They asked me, ‘Are you a Muslim?’ I said, ‘No, I used to be a Muslim and I’m a Christian now.’ I was telling them the story of how I converted.”

A passerby could not stand the discussion, however. “Another lady told the guard, ‘This guy is harassing us!'” MOA security came and told Parsa to stop soliciting. “I said, ‘We’re not soliciting.’ But we just left,” the pastor explained.

The pastor and his friends went into a coffee shop, bought a latte, and came out. Parsa told PJ Media he thought that would be the end of it. He was sorely mistaken.

“When we came out of the coffee shop, three guards were waiting for us, and they arrested me right there,” the pastor recalled. “They came after me and arrested me, and said, ‘You cannot talk religion here.'”

Parsa told security he was a pastor. “They told me, ‘We arrested pastors before,'” he recalled, still shocked by the answer. “It was something normal for them, they were used to it.”

Meanwhile, the two Somali-American women who wanted to hear the pastor’s story argued with the woman who reported him to security. They defended Parsa. Onlookers asked why the man was being arrested. “They said, ‘Because he’s a Christian,'” Parsa told PJ Media.

All this was bad enough, but the guards proceeded to abuse the pastor once he was in custody.

“They handcuffed both my hands to a metal chair that was bolted to the ground in a basement,” Parsa said. He said it reminded him of the KGB, the notorious secret police in the Soviet Union.

“They began to file a report and they wanted to take my picture. I said, ‘You cannot take my picture — you arrested me wrongfully,'” the pastor recalled. “They said, ‘Then you’re going to stay here longer.'”

Later, Parsa asked for a glass of water. They refused, unless he would allow them to take his picture. He asked to go to the bathroom. Again, they refused. Shortly before the police came, his captors relented.

“He gave me half of a really small cup of water,” the pastor said. “He was trying to buy me out with that water.”

After nearly four hours, the police arrived.

“The police came to open my handcuffs, and the handcuffs were very tight. It was hurting my hands,” Parsa recalled. “The guard said, ‘I don’t think it hurts that much.'”

He suggested that the security guards treated him with special malice because he is a pastor. “I believe they treated me worse,” he insisted.

The Mall of America did not respond to PJ Media’s request for comment.

After the police took the pastor’s mugshot and fingerprints, they charged him with criminal trespassing. He paid $78 to bail himself out, and his friends picked him up at 2 a.m. While that bail amount may seem low, the pastor insisted, “Every cent is too much for something I haven’t done.”

“I’ve gone through this before — in Muslim countries I was arrested for passing out bibles,” Parsa said. “I didn’t expect that would happen in America. As a citizen in America, I have rights. They denied my basic rights.”

The pastor compared the mistreatment he suffered in Minnesota to the persecution he faced in Iran and Turkey.

“When I became a Christian, I was stabbed, I ran away from Iran. I went to Turkey for two years as a refugee. We had a church and we were passing out Bibles. I was arrested,” Parsa recounted. He mentioned Pastor Andrew Brunson, an American pastor imprisoned in Turkey and charged with terrorism. “They thought the American government was paying us to pass out bibles. I said I wish they would,” he remarked, wryly.

When at last he came to America, he was relieved. “With tears in my eyes, I was so thankful to be in America, where I can express myself, nobody can stop me or oppress me for my faith… and then this happened to me,” Parsa said.

When his family heard the news, they thought it couldn’t possibly have happened in America. “When they realized it happened here, they were really shocked,” the pastor remarked.

Parsa posted about the ordeal on Facebook, and shortly thereafter, the government of Iran arrested his cousin for handing out bibles. “We are praying that my cousin will make it out. My nephew is in hiding,” he said.

The pastor became famous after capturing video of a plane crash in Mexico on July 31. As the plane crashed, Parsa’s video recorded him saying, “In Jesus’ name! In nomine de Jesus!” Miraculously, all 103 people on the AeroMexico flight survived.

Parsa insisted that persecution against Christians is real in America, and not just because of his story.

“We have a football coach who was fired because he prayed before the game,” he said, mentioning former Bremberton High School coach Joseph Kennedy, whose lawyers appealed his case to the Supreme Court in June. “We have a baker in Colorado who was upholding his faith and he was sued and fought for nearly six years,” the pastor added, referencing Jack Phillips, who refused to bake a cake celebrating a same-sex wedding and was vindicated by the Supreme Court but then attacked once again recently.

“It seems like the only people who can be bullied are the Christians,” Parsa said, noting that if the constant mockery aimed at Christians were to be redirected toward Muslims, “it would be an outrage.” He wondered why the LGBT activists do not request same-sex wedding cakes from Muslim bakeries. “In Muslim countries, they kill the gays. They throw them off the building. I saw with my own eyes, people being executed.”

“Christians are being persecuted and bullied, and nobody says anything to defend them,” the pastor said.

While Parsa lives in California, he will have to appear in a Minnesota court to face the charges. He told PJ Media, “We just consulted with a lawyer — we’re going to fight this, to drop the charges.”

If the pastor can confirm his story, it seems the Mall of America may end up facing charges.
