VP Pence Responds To ABC’s ‘The View’ Religious Intolerance

“We’re better than that. Our country’s better than that. I’d like to be light about it, but I really can’t. Not for my sake, but for the tens of millions of Americans who cherish their faith, I can’t be silent.”
-Vice President Mike Pence

Vice President Mike Pence hit back Wednesday at comments made on ABC’s “The View” comparing his hearing from Jesus Christ to mental illness.

On Tuesday, the panelists on the talk show discussed former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman’s recent comment on the reality TV show “Celebrity Big Brother” about Pence’s faith. She said, “I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.”

On “The View,” Joy Behar commented, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices.”

Pence said during a broadcast with Axios journalist Mike Allen, “I actually heard that ABC has a program that compared my Christianity to mental illness. And I’d like to laugh about it, but I really can’t.”

“It’s just wrong,” Pence continued. “And it’s an insult not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who, like me, cherish their faith. My Christianity is the most important thing in my life.”

Also on “The View,” Behar went on to joke, “My question is, can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?”

Another member of “The View” team, Sunny Hostin, said of Pence’s faith, “I’m Catholic, I’m a faithful person, but I don’t know that I want my vice president speaking in tongues.”

Pence also stated during the Axios interview, “I try to start everyday by opening the Good Book. My wife and I try to have a prayer together before I leave every morning. I can honestly tell you my faith sustains me in all that I do and it’s just a regular part of our lives. But I’m not unusual. I think I’m a very typical American, whatever your faith tradition, people understand that.”

“But I just think it demonstrates just how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people that you could have a major network like ABC permit a forum for invective against religion like that,” Pence continued. “And I call them out on it. Not because of what was said about me. But it’s just simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”

“We’re better than that. Our country’s better than that,” Pence concluded. “I’d like to be light about it, but I really can’t. Not for my sake, but for the tens of millions of Americans who cherish their faith, I can’t be silent.”  CBN

Bermuda Becomes First Country In The World To Repeal Same-Sex Marriage

Tim Gill, gay activist and donor, in an interview declared that his organization is going “to punish the wicked.”  Who are these wicked people?  Mentioned in the are the “religious right” but it is anyone or any grout that is against gay “marriage”.

It is an attempt by progressives to destroy Christianity and the nuclear family.  The Supreme Court should have left gay “marriage” a state issue.

There is a collision building between religious liberty and the sexual revolution.  A collision of two American values: religious freedom and freedom from discrimination.

Bermuda swaps marriage for domestic partnerships.

“The act is intended to strike a fair balance between two currently irreconcilable groups in Bermuda, by restating that marriage must be between a male and a female while at the same time recognizing and protecting the rights of same-sex couples”

Bermuda has become the first jurisdiction to legalise and then repeal same-sex marriage, in what critics have called an unprecedented rollback of civil rights by the British territory.

Bermuda’s governor has signed into law a bill reversing the right of gay couples to marry, despite a supreme court ruling last year authorising same-sex marriage.

Walton Brown, Bermuda’s minister of home affairs, said the legislation signed by Governor John Rankin would balance opposition to same-sex marriage on the socially conservative island while complying with European court rulings that ensure recognition and protection for same-sex couples in the territory.

Bermuda’s Senate and House of Assembly passed the legislation by wide margins in December and a majority of voters opposed same-sex marriage in a referendum.

“The act is intended to strike a fair balance between two currently irreconcilable groups in Bermuda, by restating that marriage must be between a male and a female while at the same time recognising and protecting the rights of same-sex couples,” said Brown, whose ruling Progressive Labour party proposed the repeal…

But same-sex couples will now have the option only of a registered domestic partnership. Brown said those couples would had “equivalent” rights to married heterosexual couples, including the right to make medical decisions on behalf of one’s partner. TheGuardian

Leftist Oakland Radicals Worked With ISIS, New Book Reports

The left and radical Islam are united in their hate of America.

Former Editor in Chief of the New York Times Magazine Edward Klein has a new book that will be released tomorrow October 30th. In All Out War: The Plot to Destroy TrumpKlein reveals an FBI investigation proving coordination between American college campus far left radicals and Islamic terrorists from groups such as ISIS and Al Qaeda.

What started as a secret investigation into the “resistance” movement spurred by college socialists and anarchists in response to Trump’s political rise, led to the discovery of what the FBI is calling the “the greatest challenge to law enforcement since the Weather Underground and the Black Panther Party.”…

Last summer the FBI began investigating international radical groups such as ANTIFA and other anarchist groups. However, activity from organizations in Oakland piqued the interest of authorities.  TownHall

Fleas In Two Arizona Counties Tested Positive for Plague

Bubonic plague.

Fleas in two Arizona counties are carrying bubonic plague, an infectious disease that took the lives of millions of people in the Middle Ages, according to news reports. So far there have been no reported illness and deaths.

Health officials in Navajo and Coconino counties in Arizona recently issued a warning to the general public after fleas in the northern part of the state tested positive for Yersinia pestis, the bacteria that causes the bubonic plague. Humans can contract the plague in a number of ways. In addition to flea bites, people can pick up the bacteria by handling the fluids or tissue of a rodent or another animal that has the illness. The plague can also be transmitted through bodily fluids such as respiratory droplets.

“Navajo County Health Department is urging the public to take precautions to reduce their risk of exposure to this serious disease, which can be present in fleas, rodents, rabbits and predators that feed upon these animals,” the public health warning states, ABC news reported. “The disease can be transmitted to humans and other animals by the bite of an infected flea or by direct contact with an infected animal.”  NewsWeek

Plague cases only occur out west.

Most human cases in the United States occur in two regions:

Northern New Mexico, northern Arizona, and southern Colorado, California, southern Oregon, and far western Nevada.  CDC

Sanctuary City: Tragedies Happen When Democratic Mayors, Governors Favor Agendas Over Safety

SJW feelings are more important than innocent citizens getting killed.   With voter-id laws that ensured only citizens voted the Democrats would lose interest in illegal aligns.

Over a half century ago, Democratic Governor George Wallace stood with start troopers barring the door to the University of Alabama, preventing black students from registering from classes there. Wallace relented only when President Kennedy threatened to call up the National Guard to defend the rights of the students.

Nine years earlier, President Eisenhower actually had to federalize the Arkansas Guard in order to protect the rights of first American citizens of color enrolled at Little Rock High School, against the intransigence of Democratic Governor Orval Faubus.

Sadly, this reprehensible tradition of Democratic governors and mayors continues to this day as the defenders of the so-called “Sanctuary City” movement evoke the ghost of Wallace and defy federal protections of our citizens in pursuit of their own narrow political agenda.

Portland, Oregon willfully ignored an ICE detainer for a known criminal illegal alien Sergio Martinez who’d been deported an almost unbelievable 20 times previously. Instead of a new deportation, he was released into the community and was recently arrested for the brutal rape of a 65 year old woman there in her own home.

The anguish and pain that innocent woman endured lies squarely upon the liberal leaders of Portland who proved more concerned with political correctness than the protection of citizens, which should always be the bedrock foundation of government.

Supporters of Sanctuary Cities argue that aggressive deportations of dangerous illegal immigrants represents a racist policy. In fact, the opposite is true. Often the very victims of criminal illegals are themselves minorities, whether legal immigrants or native born citizens.

For example, in Louisville, an 8-time deported illegal alien named Miguel Villasenor-Saucedo killed a legal Hispanic immigrant from Cuba.

Similarly, in Los Angeles 5-time deported Estuardo Alvarado killed a young mother Sandra Duran, a Latina and American citizen. Her fiancé Rodrigo Macias correctly warned the U.S. that the assailant “had no right to be here…if this were not a sanctuary city, this would not have happened.”

The real prejudice here lies in mayors like Rahm Emanuel, Bill de Blasio, and Eric Garcetti who place their personal agendas before the security of the very citizens they are supposed to serve, in direct contravention of clear federal statutes designed to protect our country from dangerous predators.

Austria Recognizes ISIS’ Genocide Against Christians

Austria has declared these atrocities against Christians as acts of genocide, they are determined to assist theses victims.

Andrew White, an Anglican priest known as the “Vicar of Baghdad,” has seen violence and persecution against Christians unprecedented in recent decades. MYOCN

Before Being Killed the Children Told ISIS No We Love Yeshua (Jesus) CBN News Canon Andrew White, Vicar of Baghdad, on ISIS in Iraq.

“In Syria, the Islamic State has beheaded and stoned men, women, and children for blasphemy, heresy, and apostasy. One Christian Syrian woman described ‘Christians being killed and tortured, and … children being beheaded in front of their parents,'” the law group has said.

It added that Assyrian Christians have faced mass kidnappings; children and adults have been tortured for refusing to deny their faith in Christ; and other Christian children have been raped and burned to death by the radicals.

An investigative report by Christian groups Open Doors and Served and Middle East Concern has warned that at least 50 percent, but possibly as much as 80 percent, of Christians in Syria and Iraq have fled the region since 2011.

Austria has become one of the first countries in the world to not only formally recognize the genocide being committed against Christians in Iraq and Syria, but also to advance a seven-point plan aimed at helping victims.

The American Center for Law and Justice reported on Tuesday that the Austrian National Council formally recognized earlier in June the “heinous atrocities” being committed by the Islamic State terror group against Christians and other religious minorities, and committed itself to carrying out at least three steps of a seven-point plan to help those who are displaced.

“Austria has become one of the first countries to take a decisive stand,” the ACLJ wrote, calling it a “major step forward” in the conservative group’s campaign to rescue followers of Christ.

The legal group launched its seven-point plan last year, the details of which are available on the ACLJ website, and has urged U.N. member states to join the fight against genocide.

The plan in question calls for the establishment of in-region “safe zones” for genocide victims fleeing radical terror, along with expanding military efforts as part of the international coalition to defeat IS. ChristianPost

This Professor Was Arrested As Alleged Antifa Bike Lock Attacker

The sleuthing capacity of  4Chan users shows the masks and disguises worn by Berkeley violent Antifa paid agitators did not work.  The police should tell protesters to remove their masks and disguises at a protest or arrest them.

4Chan users matched the former professor’s facial structure, jeans brand, shoes and backpack straps to that of the assailant. Berkeley Police arrested Clanton over a month after 4Chan’s evidence surfaced. DailyCaller

A philosophy professor who was a teaching assistant at San Francisco State University between 2013 and 2015 and also taught philosophy and ethics classes at Diablo Valley College in 2015, was arrested on suspicion of using a metal bike lock to assault supporters of President Trump at a Patriot Day rally in Berkeley in April.

Videos of the incident surfaced, allowing investigators to identify Eric Clanton, 28, hooded and masked while allegedly smashing at least three Trump supporters in the head according to police, who attested that the assaults caused “significant injuries.”

Clanton is charged with three counts of suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon that isn’t a firearm and assault causing bodily injury. On Thursday, he was booked in Berkeley Jail in lieu of $200,000 bail; he was scheduled for arraignment Friday morning in Oakland.

The 4Chan website identified Clanton, according to Berkeleyside, which interviewed Berkeley Police Capt. Ed Spiller. Spiller said Clanton had been under investigation before his arrest. According to KPIX, police said catching the bike-lock attacker was such a priority that they put homicide detectives on the job. Berkeley Police Lt. Kevin Schofield said, “You’re swinging a small metal object that can absolutely cause traumatic injuries.”  DailyWire

Alveda King: POTUS Is Redirecting [Not Cuttting] Funds To Save Lives!

The Trump administration has expanded the pro-life Mexico City Policy.

Evangelist Alveda King:   Finally our tax dollars are being redirected from death care to health care. President Trump’s “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance” policy is simply amazing. Friends, he’s not robbing the poor, he’s saving lives. Remember, abortion is not health care. Abortions kill babies and sometimes mothers. Abortion is a violent and deceptive act. I know. I survived two abortions and a miscarriage. My babies didn’t. #HowCanTheDreamSurviveAbortion

With his New Mexico City Policy, our new POTUS Administration is now multiplying the lifesaving impact well beyond the Department of State.

What’s new? Well along with the $600 million in taxpayer funding saved under the authority of the New Mexico City pro-life rule, $8.8 billion from the Departments of State, Health and Human Services, and Defense are being redirected for life. That’s almost 15 times more money flowing through the abortion ban than previous policies; yes cutting deaths by abortion while saving lives.

In a nutshell, here’s what POTUS is doing: “I direct the Secretary of State, in coordination with the Secretary of Health and Human Services, to the extent allowable by law, to implement a plan to extend the requirements of the reinstated Memorandum to global health assistance furnished by all departments or agencies…” President Trump directed.

“I further direct the Secretary of State to take all necessary actions, to the extent permitted by law, to ensure that U.S. taxpayer dollars do not fund organizations or programs that support or participate in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”

As one White House official told The Brody File, “The pro-life policy will apply to global health assistance funding for international health programs, such as those for HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, malaria, global health security, and family planning and reproductive health.”

Many people already know and understand that the inclusion of the DOD is probably the single greatest change, since the order affects all global health assistance funding—not just “family planning” dollars. Super lifesaving, money redirecting impact. More funds are now available for improving our quality of life. America Return to God!

Now, along with thousands and maybe millions of unborn lives; not to mention healing women and mothers, this policy will help heal America. Keep praying friends.  President Donald Trump is listening to 83 percent of Americans who asked him to end taxpayer funding of overseas abortion groups. I’m in that number. Are you? Pray about it!

“If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.  

FBI: 15% Of Terror Investigations Involve Refugees

Former-FBI Director James Comey on Monday told the Senate committee of crimes committed by illegal immigrants and refugees .

Exert of testimony of FBI Director James

COMEY: [W]e have about 1,000 home grown violent extremist investigations and we probably have another 1,000 or so that are — I should define my terms. Home grown violent extremists, we mean somebody — we have no indication that they’re in touch with any terrorists.

[SEN] TILLIS: Any foreign touch. Right.

COMEY: Yes. Then we have another big group of people that we’re looking at who we see some contact with foreign terrorists. So you take that 2,000 plus cases, about 300 of them are people who came to the United States as refugees. DailyWire

This is the direct opposite of statements that refugees pose no threat to national security.

So 15 percent of the FBI’s terrorism cases are refugees – far more than their share of the immigrant population, let alone the general population. And that denominator of 2,000 presumably includes people with no immigration nexus at all – skinheads, antifa, Klan, environmental and animal rights extremists, et al. So the refugee share of immigration-related terrorism investigations is more than 15 percent, perhaps much more.  Mark Krikorian at National Review

If vetting alone doesn’t work and banning travel from selected countries is merely a band-aid, what’s left? Simple: The U.S. can’t allow refugees to resettle here. Unless it is an extraordinary emergency, as Krikorian poses, but “even the UN refugee agency acknowledges that emergency cases make up only 0.4 percent of its resettlement referrals.”

“Help refugees where they are – our money goes much, much further and we can keep the security threats off shore,” Krikorian concludes.  TruthRevolt

Alan Dershowitz: Israel Does Not Cause Anti-Semitism

Dershowitz nailed it on ant-Semitism.

In a recent letter to the New York Times, the current Earl of Balfour, Roderick Balfour, argued that it is Israel’s fault that there is “growing anti-Semitism around the world.” Balfour, who is a descendent of Arthur Balfour, the British Foreign Secretary who wrote the Balfour Declaration a hundred years ago, wrote the following: “the increasing inability of Israel to address [the condition of Palestinians], coupled with the expansion into Arab territory of the Jewish settlements, are major factors in growing anti-Semitism around the world.” He argued further that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “owes it to the millions of Jews around the world” who suffer anti-Semitism, to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict.

This well-intentioned but benighted view is particularly ironic in light of the fact that the Balfour Declaration had, as one of its purposes, to end anti-Semitism around the world by creating a homeland for the Jewish people. But now the scion of Lord Balfour is arguing that it is Israel that is causing anti-Semitism.

Roderick Balfour’s views are simply wrong both as a matter of fact and as a matter of morality. Anyone who hates Jews “around the world” because they disagree with the policy of Israel would be ready to hate Jews on the basis of any pretext. Modern day anti-Semites, unlike their forbearers, need to find excuses for their hatred, and anti-Zionism has become the excuse de jure.

To prove the point, let us consider other countries: has there been growing anti-Chinese feelings around the world as the result of China’s occupation of Tibet? Is there growing hatred of Americans of Turkish background because of Turkey’s unwillingness to end the conflict in Cypress? Do Europeans of Russian background suffer bigotry because of Russia’s invasion of Crimea? The answer to all these questions is a resounding no. If Jews are the only group that suffers because of controversial policies by Israel, then the onus lies on the anti-Semites rather than on the nation state of the Jewish people. GatestoneInstitute
