Keeping Promises: Cutting Red Tape

2017_12 14 Trump cutting red tape

The Federal Regulatory Code is currently over 185,000 pages long! Candidate Trump vowed to eliminate two old regulations for every new one enacted.

So far, President Trump has eliminated TWENTY-two old regulations for every new one enacted. His new goal is to get the code back down to the 20,000 pages it was in 1960.

The military’s biggest raise in 8 years

2017_12 Trump on military

President Donald J. Trump has signed the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2018, which approves one of the largest defense spending increases since the Reagan presidency to help rebuild America’s Armed Forces.

Here is a quick list of what the NDAA does for America’s military:

  • Increases rather than shrinks the size of our forces for the first time in 7 years
  • Ensures that our military remains the world’s preeminent fighting force, which is vital to the Administration’s peace-through-strength strategy
  • Authorizes funding to allow for the continued defeat of ISIS and cover critical missile defense capabilities to confront the threat posed by North Korea
  • Takes concrete steps to rebuild U.S. military readiness
  • Approves a 2.4 percent pay raise for our troops—the largest in 8 years

And I Alone Survived

Throwing caution to the wind, I put concern for my personal safety aside and accompanied my beloved child bride into the maelstrom known as the shopping mall during the holiday season. Our plan had some success, given our early arrival in an effort to complete the mission and retreat before the assault reached a fever pitch. Winding our way through the JC Penney store, we emerged onto the main battlefield and took evasive action, ducking into a Zales Jewelers. Always wanting to have my betrothed awash in finery, she picked out a nice sterling silver and topaz ring. It had to be sized, so she won’t get it until the first week of January. She pointed out our anniversary is in February so she rationalized it could commemorate our long ago nuptials. She has a mind like a steel trap.
After a trek into Bed Bath and Beyond for some smelly concoctions, we were off to the grown man’s Chuck E Cheese, Victoria’s Secret. One would have thought purchasing gift cards would be a rather simple process. As we neared the counter, much to my chagrin, there were two long lines at the checkout. It was reminiscent of a WalMart the day the welfare class get their food stamps. I gave her my bank card to pay with and found a bench outside the store. The longer I stood there, watching women peruse stacks of panties and demi bras, the dirtier I felt.
Our final mission was a lunch at the food court. We dined on mango chicken with fried rice, bang bang shrimp, and spring rolls. Billy club and mace at the ready, we elbowed our way through the frenzied throng back through the Penney store and emerged, bruised but unbroken, in the parking lot to beat a strategic retreat to the sanctity of our home territory. I don’t think I want to go through that hell again.

GOP senators hold back support for tax bill over child tax credit
THE SENATE HAS TO PASS A TAX CUT BILL BEFORE RECESS AND THEY KNOW IT… SO DO THE DEMOCRATS.
TRUE TO THE OLD CANARD ABOUT HERDING CATS, ALL THE USUAL SUSPECTS ARE PLAYING HARD TO GET WITH THEIR VOTE FOR THIS BILL. MURKOWSKI, FLAKE, McCAIN, COLLINS, AND RUBIO HAVE ALL SET CONDITIONS FOR THEIR APPROVAL. TO HELL WITH THE PEOPLE, WE WANT WHAT WE WANT.
“Senator Rubio has consistently communicated to the Senate tax negotiators that his vote on final passage would depend on whether the refundability of the child tax credit was increased in a meaningful way,” said Rubio spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas.
Conn Carroll, a spokesman for Utah GOP Sen. Mike Lee, also said Lee is “undecided” on the bill in its current form.
Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the only Republican to vote against the original version of the tax bill passed by the Senate, also told Fox News he is undecided on whether he will vote for the final version of the bill

Illness sidelines McCain, Cochran as tax vote nears
HERE WE HAVE THE COUNTRY’S LONGEST LIVING RINO AND THAT CADAVER WITH A PULSE WHO ARE DESPERATELY NEEDED TO PASS THE TAX CUTS. MCCAIN WILL SURELY ENJOY SOMEBODY BEGGING HIM TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE PEOPLE HE CLAIMS TO REPRESENT FOR ONCE, AND COCHRAN WILL HAVE TO BE STRAPPED TO A FURNITURE DOLLY AND WHEELED IN. REMEMBER, THIS WAS THE CORPSE THAT McCONNELL’S HIT SQUAD PAID VOTERS IN MISSISSIPPI TO VOTE FOR TO KEEP THE SEAT AWAY FROM A CONSERVATIVE.
I RECALL WHEN THE DEMOCRATS NEEDED A VOTE FROM KKK BYRD, THEY WHEELED HIM ONTO THE FLOOR OF THE SENATE TO VOTE… ONE SNOT BUBBLE FOR YEA, TWO BUBBLES FOR NAY.
Both men missed all Senate votes this week, but their presence will be crucial early next week as the GOP tries to pass the tax bill in the Senate with a razor-thin Republican majority of 52-48 — and all Democrats opposed to the legislation. Adding to the uncertainty on Thursday was Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who said he would vote against the bill if negotiators failed to expand the child tax credit.

When Reporter Asked What Trump Is Doing To Combat Gun Violence Sanders Flips The Script

“You’re Vying To Replace Jerry Springer”: CNN’s Jim Acosta Roasted For Spreading #FakeNews About Gun Control
CNN‘s Jim Acosta is at it again. The White House correspondent spread fake news about gun control to his nearly 500,000 Twitter followers on Thursday.
Acosta was widely mocked for his tweet, as per usual.
“This is a lie. If a politician said this, Jim Acosta would interrupt the press conference to live-fact-check him with readily available FBI statistics,” pointed out National Review’s Charles C.W. Cooke.

Mike Huckabee Tells Mika Brzezinski To ‘Go Pound Sand’ After She Attacks His Daughter
Mike Huckabee told Mika Brzezinski to “go pound sand” after the “Morning Joe” co-host attacked his daughter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Wednesday.

“My daughter stands strong and tough and walks into that lion’s den of a press room every day and represents women and represents the president and represents strength in an incredible way.”
On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe,” Brzezinski expressed disbelief that Sanders could stand by President Donald Trump’s tweet that suggested Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand would “do anything” for political donations. Some thought that Trump’s tweet implied Gillibrand exchanged sexual favors for political donations.

NO MATTER HOW OLD A WOMAN GETS, SHE WILL ALWAYS BE HER DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL. I EXPECT IT’S THAT WAY ALL OVER THE CIVILIZED WORLD.

Eric Trump: Kirsten Gillibrand visited my dad’s office ‘every three days’ to ask for campaign money
“I remember Kirsten Gillibrand when she came into his office every three days to ask him for money and asking for major campaign contributions,” Eric Trump, 33, told WABC radio host Rita Cosby in an interview Wednesday. “There is no one who wanted to get into his office more than Kirsten Gillibrand.
Mr. Trump lashed out at the senator on Twitter Tuesday, calling her a “lightweight,” who would “come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them).”
Mrs. Gillibrand on Tuesday called the tweet a “sexist smear” and accused the president of trying to silence his accusers.

Thom Hartmann: Trump’s Tweet Slamming Gillibrand is ‘Impeachable’ Offense

BITCH, PLEASE
The perpetual outrage machine that is the left’s pathological loathing for President Trump keeps reaching new lows in absurdity, albeit only on an hourly basis.
Plenty of liberals have labeled Trump’s tweet slamming Democrat Senator and potential 2020 opponent Kirsten Gillibrand as “sexual harassment.” But liberal radio host Thom Hartmann went beyond that and described it — I’m not making this up — as grounds for impeachment.

USA Today: Trump is ‘not fit to clean the toilets’ at Obama’s presidential library
The paper used this interpretation to argue the President is unfit for office.
NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION HAS A SITTING PRESIDENT BEEN TREATED WITH THE DISRESPECT AND OVERT LOATHING THAT THIS ONE HAS… AND ALL BECAUSE HE DEFEATED THEIR CORRUPT STANDARD BEARER.

“With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office. Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low.”
They went on to say President Trump would be unworthy to do bathroom duty at the Obama library.

You Make This Difficult

After Tuesday night’s results my first inclination was to just ignore things for a few days. Then I look at the stats and see that there are still a few of you who actually come here even when Chrissy hasn’t posted anything. I enjoy doing this, but as it is in life, there are good days and bad days. Your only hope is that the good outnumber the bad. I’ve seen a few facts about the race Tuesday night I will attempt to synopsize (I don’t really care if that’s a word, it just sounded good). There’s no rhyme or reason to my rants…never has been. I’m not a professional writer. I’m not a professional anything unless being a pain in the ass counts. I don’t really mean to be, but I’m really good at it.

‘You Gotta Give the Devil Its Due’: Bannon Praises DNC’s ‘Ground Game’ in Alabama
“The DNC came in here — slipped in here — underneath the radar and did an amazing job of organizing — what’s my favorite word — ground game,” Bannon said.
He suggested that Democrats outworked Republicans and were able to drive voter turnout.

GOP’s Shelby played key role in Alabama Democrat’s victory
Shelby, Alabama’s senior senator and the state’s most influential official, publicly opposed GOP nominee Roy Moore and declared before the election that “the state of Alabama deserves better” than a former judge accused of sexual contact with teenage girls decades ago.
A former Democrat, Shelby, 83, announced weeks before the election that he had already cast an absentee ballot for another, unspecified Republican, even as President Donald Trump and other prominent state Republicans stood up for Moore.

Tammy Bruce: Republican Establishment Wants To Lose Senate Majority So Trump’s Agenda Fails
Conservative commentator Tammy Bruce, in a discussion about Alabama Republican candidate for Senate Roy Moore, said the Republican establishment want the party to lose the majority in the Senate so the Trump agenda fails. Bruce cited Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL), who announced he did not vote for Moore, and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who donated to the Democratic candidate Doug Jones, as examples.
“This is a test for the president,” Bruce said Tuesday on FOX News’ Hannity. “I think what you’ve seen with Shelby going against it. Jeff Flake, giving money to this guy. I think the Republicans in the Senate want to lose the Senate. I think they want the president’s agenda to fail and the only way to really achieve that is to suddenly become the minority.”
“Tammy, that is a profound, a deeply troubling thing you just said,” host Sean Hannity said.
https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/12/12/tammy_bruce_republican_establishment_wants_to_lose_senate_majority_so_trumps_agenda_fails.html

She may be spot on. The Republican elites care nothing for being in the majority. If they did, they’d have helped the president with his agenda. All they care about is getting their share of the money. It’s far easier to sit back and make false claims about what you would do if you had the power than to actually do it.
Spin it any way you want…now the Dems can’t hold Moore over every Republican next year.
Jones can’t win the general in 2020.
The democrats got one of the heaviest black turnouts ever. They also offered cash for votes. Heavily black Montgomery County waited until all the other counties had reported before they released their totals.
Some of you may remember the close presidential race in 1960 between John Kennedy and Richard Nixon. Nixon was leading, but Mayor Daley was withholding the totals from Cook County. Whoever won Illinois won the election. He waited to see how many votes they needed to steal the election. That’s where the legend of the dead voter came from. They succeeded and the rest, as they say, is history. They’ve been getting away with it for decades and will continue to because they pay absolutely no price for it.

Trump: I Was Right About the Alabama Senate Race
But the president, who backed Moore’s primary opponent Luther Strange, wasn’t done commenting on the race, tweeting Wednesday:
“The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!”

Steve Bannon’s Big Loss in Alabama
The big loser in Tuesday’s Alabama’s special Senate election was not the Republican Party. They had already lost weeks ago, the moment the Washington Post wrote their (carefully vetted, in this instance) exposé of the thirty-year-old sexual proclivities of Judge Roy Moore.
In many ways, the Republicans are lucky not to have Moore to deal with in Congress. They can face obvious White House aspirant Kirsten Gillibrand and her merry band of hypocrites with a straight face.

Why Republicans Shouldn’t Worry Too Much About Moore’s Loss
Even with the loss of a seat to Jones, Republicans still retain enough of a majority to pass whatever legislation they want, provided all 51 Republican senators vote in lockstep. Senate Republicans passed a budget in October that allows leadership to pass legislation with only 51 “yes” votes and bypass filibusters from Democrats altogether.
Jones also won’t be a factor Republicans have to consider for a number of weeks. Leadership announced Tuesday that Jones will not likely be seated until after the Christmas recess, which means Republicans will maintain their 52 seat majority while finalizing tax reform and negotiating the upcoming budget agreement.

Comparing Moore in 2012 to Moore in 2017
Comparing Trump in 2016 to Moore in 2017

In 2012, Moore won a state Supreme Court seat. In 2017 he outperformed his margins in 32 counties, but in 35 others he did worse.
Every single county swung left compared to 2016, with some moving more than 15 points. Moore lost 12 counties that Trump won.

Chuck Todd Warns: ‘Every Republican’ Must ‘Fear for Their Political Lives’

“Now Republicans have to be asking themselves, is this a one-off, is this a candidate who was flawed, or is this a sign of what could happen in the 2018 midterms?” Rather than blame Moore for the loss, Todd had someone else in mind:
“First of all, Donald Trump is political toxin, period. Look at the year throughout. You have to go through – this is not a one-off. Let’s start – this started in Kansas, in Montana, in Georgia, there were all these special elections. And Democrats didn’t win them, but they were over-performing by 10 and 15 points. Democratic enthusiasm, Trump problems.”

CBS Celebrates Jones Campaign Efforts, Predicts ‘GOP On the Ropes’
The first segment was narrated by reporter Manuel Bojorquez, who declared that “Alabama voters rolled back the political tides yesterday.” He highlighted the efforts of the Jones campaign in the days leading up to the election: “Jones was able to energize a traditionally weak democratic network here … He was buoy by millions in outside money and outspent Moore on campaign ads by 5-1.”
“His campaign says supporter knocked on 300,000 doors and made more than a million phone calls. And Jones had multiple campaign appearances a day while Moore shied away from cameras, dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls,” Bojorquez added.

“We Did It!” – GOP Establishment and #NeverTrumpers Cheer Republican Roy Moore’s Loss
Several establishment Republicans and imposters cheered the election victory of Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama on Tuesday.
Bill Kristol‘s #NeverTrump leader Evan McMullin sent out an email on Wednesday cheering the Democrat victory.

These people have no commitment to the American people.

These GOP elites could not care less.

Breitbart News Daily Callers Explain Alabama GOP Senate Loss: ‘Mitch McConnell Is a Snake’
“I don’t see how there’s any justification for Mitch McConnell to have a fund where he gets to pick the candidate. Is that what the head of the party’s supposed to be doing?” asked Ralph in Colorado, criticizing McConnell’s influence over the Senate Leadership Fund (SLF).
The SLF is led by Steven Law, McConnell’s former chief of staff. The SLF spent millions of dollars supporting Sen. Luther Strange’s (R-AL) failed primary campaign against Roy Moore.

Dems Find Winning Formula
“The Democrats finally got their narrative shifting win even if it was the result of accusing an honorable man of being a child molester and plumbing the gutters of racial demagoguery. The party and its radical left backers in California threw everything that they had into this election and it worked, setting up three years of sexual smears to come that they hope will result in their return to power.

However, they couldn’t have pulled it off without a huge helping hand from Republicans who with the exception of President Trump, refused to support their own candidate and losing a Senate seat that should have been theirs for the taking. It’s probably more accurate to attribute Jones’ big win to Moore being fragged by his own troops led by Mitch McConnell who made it clear that the judge would never be seated if he did win by threatening an immediate ethics investigation into the four-decades-old allegations from a handful of women.

Will the women now simply go away? That is probably a pretty safe bet, they have served their purpose. Even with their win, it took a massive mobilization of black voters and a registration of felons to beat Moore and now that they have served their purpose, the Democrats will forget about them and move on to the next race.” – DONN MARTEN

Dem Rep Hijacks Rosenstein Hearing To Talk Sexual Harassment
Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee went on an inexplicable rant about sexual harassment claims during a congressional hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

“What intentions does the Department of Justice have to allow these women, who are accusing the president of sexual misconduct and have never been heard in terms of a public setting…what does the Department of Justice intend to do?”
“If they file a lawsuit, they’re free to do so, it would be a Department matter” Rosenstein responded somewhat incredulously.

Obama still doesn’t get it – optimism, not whining, grows an economy

IT’S SIMPLE. HE HAS NO CLUE HOW AN ECONOMY WORKS AND COULDN’T CARE LESS. HIS FOCUS WAS ON SHOVING SOCIALISM AND RACIAL HATRED DOWN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE’S THROATS. HE REVELED IN THE MISERY HE CAUSED.

What Obama never understood is that there is a close and important correlation between optimism and growth. Optimistic consumers spend money. Optimistic investors buy stocks. Most important, business leaders who view the future positively will invest in growth.

The optimism unleashed on November 8, 2016, was astonishing. The very next month, consumer confidence soared to a 15-year high, according to the Conference Board, “well ahead of analysts’ expectations.” To be precise, the index rose to 107.1 from 98.6; economic gurus were forecasting 101.5. It wasn’t the “current conditions” survey that popped, but rather the “future” outlook that jumped to the highest level since 2003.

“There’s a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposely misleading the American people. Something that happens regularly. You cannot say that it is an honest mistake when you are purposely putting out information that you know to be false or when you’re taking information that has not been validated, hasn’t been offered with any credibility and continually denied by a number of people including people with direct knowledge of an instance. I am speaking about the number of reports over the last couple weeks. I am stating that there should be a certain level of responsibility in that process.”

A wellness center linked to the church has also collected more than $2.6 million in taxpayer-funded government grants in 2017 and more than $17 million in grants since 2008, according to records.

Now, the loan Rush secured has gone delinquent, and the creditor is seeking to recoup the money through the Cook County court system. A $1.1 million judgment was issued against Rush for $542,000 in unpaid principal, $441,000 in interest, and nearly $50,000 in attorney fees.

Jerry Brown: ‘I Don’t Think President Trump Has a Fear of the Lord’
California Governor Jerry Brown went Biblical on Sunday evening, telling CBS News’ 60 Minutes that President Donald Trump does not fear God because he does not believe in climate change.

[CtH: Seriously?  I’m supposed to CARE what Jerry Brown thinks about God?]

THE FACT THIS MADMAN RUNS A STATE IS TERRIFYING.http://www.breitbart.com/california/2017/12/10/jerry-brown-trump-fear-lord/

Why Lois Lerner believes U.S. taxpayers have ‘no legitimate’ reason to see her tea party testimony
ONE OF MY FERVENT HOPES IS TO ONE DAY SEE THIS ARROGANT CRONE AND THAT SNEERING WEASEL JOHN KOSKINEN FACE FELONY CHARGES.

[CtH: It would be so beautiful to see her marched off in an orange jumpsuit.]

Ms. Lerner and her former chief lieutenant, Holly Paz, have said they faced death threats in the past, and say they fear any more attention to their behavior would spur a new round of harassment.

They said there’s “exceedingly low” public interest in having their depositions released, and they said tea party groups are pushing for disclosure out of “spite.”

SPITE? IS THAT WHAT YOU CALL COMMITTING CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES?

Dem Senators Call on Trump to Resign ‘Immediately’
“I think he should immediately resign, and if he doesn’t, we should have the investigation,” she said, calling the allegations “credible.”

Three of her colleagues, Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Jeff Merkley (D-OR), agree Trump needs to go. His crimes, they argue, are equal to or worse than those that derailed their colleague Al Franken’s career.

The Latest: Trump blasts Gillibrand over resignation call

President Donald Trump is lashing out at Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has called on him to resign over allegations of sexual misconduct.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Trump calls the New York Democrat “lightweight” and “a total flunky for Chuck Schumer,” the Senate Democratic leader.

Trump says Gillibrand “would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them).”

TRUMP HAD A BEAUTY PAGEANT AND HAD THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMEN IN THE WORLD WHO WOULD BE WITH HIM WILLINGLY. WHY WOULD HE WANT THESE SKANKS?

We’ll teach you not to wish Jake Tapper a “Merry Christmas”

Horror of horrors, when the interview concluded, Ambassador Haley said, “Merry Christmas” to Tapper. Why is that an issue? Because Jake Tapper is Jewish. Despite the fact that this goes on between people of all faiths (or none) all over the country every day at this time of year, you just knew somebody would jump on it.

At the conclusion of his next interview with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Tapper demonstrated how to acknowledge someone of the Jewish faith.

“If I don’t see you before Tuesday,” Tapper told Schiff, “Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year’s as well.”

“Same to you, sir,” Schiff agreed.

TRUMP CURSE CONTINUES: Leftie Rocker Rushed to Hospital for Emergency Operation after Snarky Trump Tweet

It’s real, folks.

@JohnMayer
Idea: somebody should tell Trump they want to make a 3-D scan of his head for a statue but really it’s an MRI.
1:24 AM – Nov 29, 2017

A week later, Mayer was rushed to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy last week.


Palestinians use ambulances to transport and shield rioters

A repeat during anti-Trump riots of what we saw in Gaza 2014, the misuse of medical facilities and transport.

The reaction to Donald Trump’s announcement that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and plans to move the Embassy has not generated nearly the heat and fury as predicted.

Some Warm Feelings Just for You

All you’ll hear about today is the showdown in Alabama. All the news crews are down there, ready to preen before the camera and try to act like it’s simply reportage and not the culmination of a six week jihad to ruin a Republican senate candidate. Plenty of time for that. Consider this a sort of palate cleanser for the hard news yet to come.

This is the time of year where acts of love and compassion are most keenly felt. Like the characters in Scrooge who call on the old miser to solicit funds to buy some food and warmth for the truly needy, our own souls must be replenished to remind us that we are made by God and life is a temporary condition. Through the daily assault on our faith, our morals, and our way of life, we need reminders from time to time that God has got this. Trust in Him and we’ll be OK. This Christmas is especially joyful because Israel has a powerful new ally.

I POST THIS EVERY YEAR. I NEVER GET TIRED OF IT. HOPE I NEVER WILL.

[CtH: Beautiful message, Pete. Thank you!]

Wreaths Across America caravan begins annual journey from Maine to Arlington

The Wreaths Across America caravan departed Sunday from Columbia Falls, where the wreaths were made. It’ll travel through Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Washington D.C., before arriving in a week in Arlington, Virginia.

Medal of Honor recipient Roger Donlon and his wife Norma, seen here at a Capitol Hill reception in 2007, are the grand marshals for this year’s Wreaths Across America caravan.

The tradition began when Maine wreath maker Morrill Worcester donated 5,000 wreaths to Arlington Cemetery. This year, there will be more than 200,000 of them placed at Arlington alone. A total of 1.2 million wreaths will be placed on markers across the country in 1,238 locations.

World War II Mansfield veteran gets a boost from firefighters

WANNA SEE A REAL BADASS?

Decorated World War II veteran Walter Gilbert and his wife Mary are both 95 and still manage to live in their own home. But they have some mobility issues, including difficulty with stairs, such as the ones from their home.

About a half-dozen firefighters left their regular shift Friday morning and headed over to the couple’s West Street home to install a ramp Veterans Agent Michael Raymond was able to get for the Gilberts.

One of the reasons Gilbert needs the ramp is because of injuries to his legs he suffered in the war.

Terry said he sat down and talked to Gilbert, learning he endured about 180 days of combat, and was wounded twice. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge where he took shrapnel.

Despite his service to our country and what he went through, Gilbert is humble and gracious for the support from the town.

When told he deserved it after his service he said, “Well I don’t know about that.”
Terry advises area residents to contact their community’s veterans agents to see what is needed

Widow, 94, breaks down as husband’s ring lost after he was killed in WWII plane wreck is returned to her

BEHOLD THE COMPASSION OF ALMIGHTY GOD


Robert and his good luck charm made it through 38 successful missions but unfortunately he lost his life during the 39th. The ring survived and was discovered amongst the shattered plane in New Guinea 40 years ago.  It was returned recently to Greebull’s wife who hasn’t forgotten her love for him–not at all.

‘He was a wonderful, wonderful guy,’ Betty McAleenan said to KLTA. ‘And I fell madly in love like all people do at that age,’ she continued.

A little help here? Baby signs distress signal from mall Santa’s lap

THIS IS ADORABLE

Kerry Spencer taught both of her children to sign using American Sign Language before they could speak because she found it useful to be able to communicate with them when they were babies.

Samuel was just one year old when he used his baby version of ASL to sign “help” to his mom while the photographer at the Provo Town Center Mall in Provo, Utah, snapped his picture. “I was standing to the side when the pic was taken and actually didn’t see that he was signing for help until I saw the photo,” his mom told TODAY Parents.

Bucking a trend, these churches figured out how to bring millennials back to worship

Pastors Kyle Turner, 36, and wife Liz, 37, say they had “discerned a call” to build a church for younger people when they moved to Kansas City from Oklahoma in 2009.
Today, The Cause has its own digs, a space at 4646 Belleview Ave. that feels more like a tech start-up than a place of worship. To the right of the entrance is a small work space and complimentary coffee bar. To the left, “Jesus Over Everything” beams in an aqua neon light. In one corner is “The Welcome Spot,” a teal room where prospective members can learn more about the church. Across from there is the sanctuary, with rows of chairs facing a stage festooned with a neon-beamed backdrop.


THE METHODS OF PREACHING MATTER FAR LESS THAN GUIDING YOUNG PEOPLE TO GOD’S MERCY AND OUR REDEMPTION THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

Out of Wedlock Birth Rates High in America; End of Shotgun Weddings Partially to Blame

IN FULL DISCLOSURE, I MUST PLEAD GUILTY. MY FIRST WIFE WAS PREGNANT WITH RJ’s MOM WHEN WE WERE MARRIED.  THERE WAS NO QUESTION … YOU JUST DIDN’T WALK AWAY. YOU TOOK RESPONSIBILITY.

The proportion of mothers who are unmarried is at 40 percent, up from five percent in 1960; two-thirds of first births to women under 30 are to unwed women. Determining why out-of-wedlock pregnancy and birth has spiked is the subject of a new report, released Monday, from the Social Capital Project.

Between the early 1950s and the late 2000s, the proportion of births from unwed pregnancies increased from 10 to almost 50 percent. Similarly, the rate of births to previously unwed couples who married after conception but before birth was 43 percent in the early 1960s; it dropped steadily to nine percent in the late 2000s.

The other most significant factor is the vanishing of the so-called “shotgun marriage,” the sequence of events where a woman becomes pregnant, and then she and the father of the child are socially pressured into tying the knot.

Nativity scene with Jesus in migrant boat is not going over well

A Catholic bishop condemned a nativity scene that depicts Mary holding Jesus in a rubber boat to symbolize the plight of migrants crossing the Mediterranean.

“I’m not saying a crib cannot be enriched by other elements, and certainly, a boat is a symbol that reminds us of the need for hospitality, but don’t forget that Jesus is the savior of all problems, not just one,” Vecchi said, according to International Business Times.

Our World: Trump’s great and ingenious gifts

Turning his back on the legacy of president Barack Obama, Trump beats a new path in American-Israeli relations.

With his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Wednesday, US President Donald Trump gave a Hanukkah gift to the Jewish people. But he also gave a Christmas gift to the American people.

Trump’s gift to Israel is not merely that 68 years after Israel declared Jerusalem its capital, the US finally recognized Israel’s capital.

To understand why it was both courageous and wise, consider the political, institutional and geopolitical contexts in which Trump acted.

Politically, Trump made his declaration in a poisonous political environment at home.
The Democrats responded to Trump’s victory last year over Hillary Clinton by seeking to delegitimize his victory. To this end, they chose to oppose everything that he says and does.

84-Year-Old Korean War vet kills one home intruder in point-blank shot, sends second one running

THIS WAR HORSE IS OLD SCHOOL….TRY TO ROB ME, I’LL INTRODUCE YOU TO GOD… PERSONALLY.

An 84-year-old Korean War veteran killed a home intruder Friday with a single shot right to the chest, and he’s crediting God with his success.  While Lutz is somewhat sore from the struggle, he has escaped without any real injuries and credits his success to his Christian faith.

“I’ve never been afraid in my life,” Lutz said. “God has always been with me, and I’m a hard believer in God and Jesus Christ, and God was with me tonight.”

Lutz is not facing any charges for his act of home self-defense.
