In the United States, surveys show that many millennials are not merely soft on socialism but openly support it. They think capitalism benefits only the “1 percent” and no one else, despite America’s matchless record of upward mobility and prosperity. Since the 1960s, the media, Hollywood and the education system have presented a warped view of America along with a sugarcoated version of socialism. So, we should not be surprised when we see so many young people fooled by the false promises of redistributive economics.
The Rev. Franklin Graham has made note of prophecy surrounding the return of Jesus Christ as Christians and Jews mark the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Israel and the U.S. embassy’s official opening in Jerusalem. “[Seventy] years ago today, the State of Israel was established. In fulfillment of prophecy, God brought the nation into being, and He is sustaining them for the day when the Lord Jesus Christ Himself will return and establish His throne in Jerusalem as Scripture tells us,” Graham wrote on Facebook Monday. “I believe it is significant that the United States has formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and is moving our embassy there”
Merle Hoffman’s life has been dedicated to oppressing the most innocent victims of all – unborn babies. And she described it as a “dream.” Hoffman runs Choices, a large abortion business in Queens, New York City, where viable unborn babies are aborted up to 24 weeks of pregnancy. She makes between $450 and $2,000 for each unborn baby who is aborted, and lives in a lavish, waterfront home. Forbes once nicknamed her the “Millionaire Abortionist.” Sickly, Hoffman told the newspaper that she now is no longer dreaming but living her fantasy. “It’s today. This is dream. My life is meaningful, challenging, stressful, and extremely exciting at times,” she said.
FBI Director Christopher Wray described “what I would call sort of our highest counterterrorism priority at the moment.” “We have about 1,000 investigations into exactly the kind of people you’re describing, covering all 50 states as I’m sitting here right now. And that’s not even counting, you know, the al-Qaeda investigations, the traditional ISIS investigations, the domestic terrorism investigations, but just the group you’re talking about,” he said. “And what makes it so hard is that there are not many dots to connect with some of these people. They pick soft targets, they use easy to use weapons, you know, IEDs, cars, knives, guns. And they can make decisions on the spur of the moment.
Last week, the New York Times published an opinion piece by Gerard Alexander, an associate professor of politics at the University of Virginia, titled, “Liberals, You’re Not as Smart as You Think.” The piece is an intriguing analysis of how liberals are hurting their own cause by presuming their mental and moral superiority, and thus, are inviting significant backlash against their favored agenda. The prime example is how liberals use their virtual monopoly in the media and the entertainment industry to ruthlessly bash Trump. They’re very protective of this monopoly as their goal is ideological segregation. Any signs of diversity of thought are met with disgust and hatred.
That St. Ambrose College in Davenport, Iowa has opened a sex-segregated prayer room for Muslim students requires an explanation. Why exactly do Muslims want to go to an explicitly Catholic college and why is that now-progressive Catholic college proudly violating normative standards of equal treatment for men and women? The answer is found in why feminists have turned into crickets on select overt sexism when they howl outrages over only perceived slights against women. Muslims, feminists and most American progressives have a common enemy: America’s Judeo-Christian heritage, which they have been working to dismantle for generations.
A Christian parent of a Gerrardstown, West Virginia, student is outraged after his daughter’s school required students to copy the Islamic faith declaration in calligraphy. The purported assignment came from the young girl’s social studies class. According to The Christian Post, “the packet went into detail about the history of Islam, the prophet Muhammad, and the five pillars of the religion.” The parent, however, was most perturbed that the children were instructed to write the Arabic form of the Shahada, the Islamic profession of faith which roughly translates to, “There is no god but Allah. Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”
