A white dwarf star in the Constellation Virgo turns out to be a “death star” worthy of “Star Wars.” Astronomers have discovered a rocky object coming apart in a death spiral around this distant star.

“There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily.” —George Washington, 1795
As we go to press today, the House Select Committee on Benghazi is grilling Hillary Clinton. Despite the grandstanding from committee Democrats, her felonious complicity in and her subsequent cover-up of the true story of the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi is on full display.
First, for more than a year, Clinton has endeavored to escape accountability for unlawfully maintaining all of her official secretary of state communications outside of official networks. Clearly, this was an effort to protect her 2016 presidential bid from the plethora of nefarious activities reflected in those emails. Despite Clinton’s claims — “I did not email any classified material to anyone” and “There is no classified material” — it is now apparent that hundreds and perhaps thousands of her unsecured email communications contained sensitive and classified content. Transmitting that content is a felony. But not only was her arrogant “above the law” use of unsecured email illegal, it was deadly because it exposed policy directives and the names of covert operatives. We can assume Russia and China had full access to all of Clinton’s unsecured communication.
Second, additional details may surface about how her emails demonstrate her complicity in formulating the political lie about the murder of our personnel in Benghazi — Christopher Stevens, his aide Sean Smith, and two diplomatic security officers, former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Her Benghazi lie was an effort to provide Barack Obama political cover for his “al-Qa’ida on the run” campaign theme just weeks ahead of the 2012 presidential election. So determined was Clinton to propagate this lie that she shamelessly stood in front of those four flag-draped caskets and declared to the families of the dead, “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.” We will cover this testimony in detail Friday.
TOP RIGHT HOOKS
Despite a couple of well-placed endorsements from Barack Obama, Joe Biden passed on a presidential run in a Rose Garden speech Wednesday. That huge sigh of relief you heard was from the Hillary Clinton campaign. After the May death of his son, Beau, Biden wrestled with the decision and ultimately decided against it, concluding that “the window on mounting a realistic campaign for president … has closed.” Another way to look at it is that Clinton’s debate performance cut off Biden a day after Jim Webb quit the race. It solidifies her iron grip on the nomination.
As Obama did in distancing himself from Clinton over her email server, however, Biden implicitly repudiated the Democrat frontrunner for her political divisiveness. “I believe we have to end the divisive partisan politics that is ripping this country apart. … It’s mean-spirited, it’s petty and it’s gone on for far too long. I don’t think we should look at Republicans as our opposition. They’re not our enemies.” That was a clear reference to Clinton’s debate remark that Republicans were her most notable enemies. But it’s ironic that Biden made his comments while standing next to Obama, who has done more to make enemies of his political opponents than anyone.
Many thought Biden would be a Plan B for Democrats if Clinton is indicted by the FBI — and it’s a remote possibility that he will remain so, as his remarks were basically an “I’m running” stump speech minus the “I’m running.” Obama’s recent dismissal of any national security implications from Clinton’s careless handling of classified material makes an indictment even less likely, and Biden’s stepping aside may indicate Obama knows it. We don’t anticipate that a Democrat president is going to allow the Democrat frontrunner to be indicted, even if there’s no love lost between the two. Finally, while we’d never support Biden, we will miss the hilarity he would no doubt have brought to the campaign trail.
The House Freedom Caucus has found its speaker. The group of 40 lawmakers that drove the Department of Homeland Security to the edge of a shutdown in February over Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty and that was instrumental in the ouster of current Speaker John Boehner, announced that a “supermajority” of its members would support Rep. Paul Ryan for the speakership. Unlike Boehner, who squandered his role by trying to manage the herd of cats known as the House, Ryan plans to lead the chamber by bringing vision to the position. “Paul is a policy entrepreneur who has developed conservative rhans eforms dealing with a wide variety of subjects, and he has promised to be an ideas-focused Speaker who will advance limited government principles and devolve power to the membership,” the Freedom Caucus said in a statement. Ryan said he would only run for the speakership if he got the backing from all the Republican groups in the House, ensuring that his leadership would bring a measure of unity. The Freedom Caucus torpedoed the speakership bid of House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, so its support is vital for the next speaker. If all goes well, Republicans will vote for the new speaker Oct. 29, Boehner will resign his position the next day, and the GOP will have its speaker who will lead them into a new presidential administration. So far, Ryan seems to have the votes.
Earlier this year, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) discovered malicious cyber theft of background investigation records of current, former and prospective federal employees. Sensitive information was stolen, including the Social Security numbers of 21.5 million individuals. In a letter to those affected, OPM seems to have taken a one-size-fits-all approach that does not account for obvious disparities in the potential impact and threat among those whose data was stolen. From what we have learned thus far, the entry-level janitor at DHS is given the same level of “protection” as the Seal Team 6 operator, the nuclear submarine commander or the Jet Propulsion Laboratory rocket scientist whose personal data may have been compromised. “Fairness” and expediency trump common sense as the administration attempts to sweep under the rug this massive and unprecedented breach of security.
It doesn’t take that JPL rocket scientist to realize that our “adversary” (the politically correct term being used to describe the Red Chinese military hackers involved) will certainly prioritize the stolen data to identify high-value targets. The threat spectrum involved could run from targeted assassination in the worst case to blackmail, covert spying recruitment and military or economic espionage. Identity theft is one of the least damaging possibilities to anyone thinking big-picture national security.
To simply place all 21 million of the affected individuals in one group and provide them three years of credit monitoring and identity theft insurance is nice, but it’s also the height of insult and, frankly, stupid. Such boneheaded lack of vision and forethought is what brought us such a debacle in the first place. Even worse — those responsible for preventing this nightmare are still safely ensconced at OPM, a bureaucratic haven of incompetence if ever there was one. Not a single person has been fired, demoted or jailed for this incredible breach of our security, though Katherine Archuleta did step down as OPM director. Finally, we are not at all surprised to see that OPM used the disaster to ask Congress for more money.
In yesterday’s story about Jim Webb, we listed several of his military awards but neglected to mention his foremost one, the Navy Cross, though we had noted it in previous coverage. That oversight has been corrected.

FEATURED RIGHT ANALYSIS
By Kelly Bartlett
Texas Governor Greg Abbott informed Planned Parenthood that it would be dropped from the state’s Medicaid program. Abbott, a Republican, issued a press release Monday explaining, “The gruesome harvesting of baby body parts by Planned Parenthood will not be allowed in Texas and the barbaric practice must be brought to an end.” Amen to that.
Undercover videos from The Center for Medical Progress exposed PP employees describing the harvesting of body parts from aborted babies. The fifth video was filmed in Houston and featured regional Director of Research Melissa Farrell, who implied that abortionists could change the procedure in order to obtain better “specimens.” Farrell said, “If we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. It’s all just a matter of line items.”
Planned Parenthood reacted by pretending that women will no longer have access to health care. Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens called the Texas defunding “outrageous” and blamed it on “thoroughly discredited, fraudulent videos.” She claimed this will “cut women off from preventive health care.” PP has long sought to brand itself as synonymous with women’s health care, but, as CEO Cecile Richards admitted to Congress last month, the organization doesn’t own or operate a single mammogram machine.
However, Abbott made clear that excluding PP “will not affect access to care because there are thousands of alternate providers in Texas.” The governor also requested “cooperation in informing all clients” where to obtain Medicaid services from “providers in good standing.”
Three other states have also defunded PP, including neighboring Louisiana. When the latter’s governor, Bobby Jindal, excluded the abortion organization from his state’s Medicaid reimbursement program, PP promptly sued him, which resulted in a temporary restraining order signed by U.S. District Judge John deGravelles Sunday. Louisiana must continue funding PP for the next two weeks. It is not yet known whether PP will bring a similar lawsuit against Texas.
On Monday, Jindal said, “I hope every governor will defund Planned Parenthood. They can’t sue us all.”
Louisiana intends to appeal the restraining order. Jindal spokesman Mike Reed said, “Instead of going through the same administrative review as any other Medicaid provider, they are running to the federal courts and asking for special treatment.” Just how much special treatment? Fox News calculates PP has received over $4 billion in government funding over the past 10 years.
No wonder PP is fighting back with lawsuits.
Selling human fetal body parts is not only repulsive, it’s a felony. However, Cecile Richards claimed the agency has never sold tissue but rather donated it at cost. Nevertheless, the abortion giant announced earlier this month that it would no longer accept reimbursements for donating body parts.
However, this is too little, too late for many, including Tennessee Rep. Diane Black, who intends to continue defunding efforts. “It is curious that, while Planned Parenthood officials maintain there has been no wrongdoing, they still find it necessary to change their policy,” Black said. “Clearly, this was a decision motivated by optics rather than the organization’s conscience.”
CMP’s reaction: “This only raises more serious questions about what Planned Parenthood leadership has been allowing its clinics to do with money and baby parts, and intensifies the need for Congress to pursue full auditing and oversight of Planned Parenthood’s unaccountable criminal enterprise of baby parts trafficking.”
Harvesting baby organs for free isn’t going to cut it. If PP declines reimbursement for slicing through the face of a fetus to obtain the brain, who will pay the bill for this extra labor? The taxpayer?
By changing its policy to donate parts without reimbursement, it appears Richards is missing the point. As appalling as paying for body parts is, the action of killing the baby in the first place is most horrific. “Fetal tissue donation” exposes the lie that abortion merely removes an unwanted clump of cells.
Understanding how horrendous it sounds to carve out baby hearts, lungs and eyeballs, PP realized it needed a public relations makeover and hired the “Democratically aligned” communications firm SKDKnickerbocker for damage control by the time CMP released its third video.
Defunding is important to stop the flow of tax dollars into the coffers of PP. But these undercover videos are even more crucial in swaying the hearts and minds of Americans as they witness what goes on behind the scenes at an abortion clinic. Seeing is believing.
Planned Parenthood, you’ve come a long way, baby, from “women’s health care.” Now, it’s simply “Baby Body Parts.”

OPINION IN BRIEF
Jeff Jacoby: “Voting-rights law has gone off the rails … and the longer the Supreme Court tolerates race-conscious rules in drawing district lines, the worse the political damage will get. The old rule — voters’ skin color may not be considered when electoral districts are drawn — is the better rule, less polarizing and more decent. The Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments should be read to enjoin strict colorblindness when state legislatures make their maps. The means to that end is not rocket science. While continuing to require that districts be roughly equal in population, the court should require as well that they be geometrically compact, and that they take no account of voters’ party registration or voting history. The parameters couldn’t be simpler; a computer could do the job. Incumbent politicians might lose the ability to choose their constituents. But voters would be equal at last, exercising their franchise under a Constitution that is color-blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens.”
Insight: “[N]othing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this.” —Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
Upright: “The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has analyzed about 70% of total global development aid and found that about one in four of those dollars goes to climate-related aid. In a world in which malnourishment continues to claim at least 1.4 million children’s lives each year, 1.2 billion people live in extreme poverty, and 2.6 billion lack clean drinking water and sanitation, this growing emphasis on climate aid is immoral. … Providing the world’s most deprived countries with solar panels instead of better health care or education is inexcusable self-indulgence. Green energy sources may be good to keep on a single light or to charge a cellphone. But they are largely useless for tackling the main power challenges for the world’s poor.” —Bjorn Lomborg in The Wall Street Journal
Alpha Jackass: “[Tea Partiers] come from states that used to own slaves. They come from states that the Confederate Army was pledged allegiance to. They come from states that the Ku Klux Klan and voters rights and all of those things came into play. … It is their view that if they can bring down the government they can rebuild in their image.” —Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY)
Demo-gogues: “Republicans are wasting the American people’s time with a partisan vote on the Donald Trump Act. That’s what we’re going to vote on at 2:15. That’s what the House members have called it, and I think it’s a pretty good description of what we’re doing out there.” —Harry Reid just before Democrats blocked a bill reigning in sanctuary cities
Village Idiots: “[W]hen I hear a United States senator say, ‘I’m not a scientist so I can’t make a judgment,’ or a candidate for president for that matter, I’m absolutely astounded. … [W]hen more than 6,000-plus peer-reviewed studies of the world’s best scientists all lay out that [global warming] is happening and mankind is contributing to it, it seems to me that [climate skeptics] disqualify themselves fundamentally from high public office with those kinds of statements.” —John Kerry
Wrong prescription: “I want to see our post office be reinvigorated. … I think that the postal service, in fact, can play an important role in providing modest types of banking service to folks who need it.” —Bernie Sanders

When someone is right over and over and over, eventually people start paying attention. Personally, I have learned to tune out the “forecasts” of most “economic experts” out there. As an attorney, I was trained to be skeptical, and I have found that most forecasts about what the financial markets are going to do are not worth the paper they are printed on. However, once in a while something comes along that really gets my attention. Over the past few days, I have seen a number of references to the remarkable forecasts of Bo Polny of Gold 2020 Forecast. In recent months he has correctly predicted that U.S. stocks would begin to drop in July, that there would be a huge plunge in August and that that the month of September would be rather uneventful. Now he is saying that he expects “November to be a complete meltdown on the U.S. and world markets”. Just because he has been right in the past does not guarantee that he will be correct this time around, but lots of people (like me) are starting to pay attention. (Read More….)

Mother of all highs: A determined push to win over moms is under way
This piece is about winning moms over to marijuana. The Economist reports:
AT A soirée on the outskirts of Denver, Colorado, one woman greets her fellow guests with a delicate bowl of vanilla sea-salt caramels, each one laced with marijuana. “It’s quite subtle,” she insists. “I just keep a few in my bag for when I’m feeling stressed out.” Over light chat about family and work, the group quickly cleaned up the bowl.
It is a scene Americans will be accustomed to by about 2025, according to Jazmin Hupp, head of Denver’s Women Grow society. “Once moms are on board, that’s it,” she explains, taking a drag on a hot pink e-cigarette filled with cannabis oil. Her battle cry explains the recent surge in products such as vegan weed bonbons, cannabis kale crisps, cannabis spiced almonds and “high tea”.
Vatican meeting reveals growing Catholic divide over divorce and homosexuality
EDITOR’S NOTE: The Vatican has long said that the Catholic Church “never changes”, but guess what? It is in the death throes of a cataclysmic change at this very moment. Just as Obama made homosexuality and the LGBT Agenda an evil ordinance of the United States, so Pope Francis is attempting to wreak that same unGodly havoc upon the already Godless Catholic church corporation. The ensuing war is splitting the Catholic church right down the middle. Mark it down, there will be blood.
VATICAN CITY — At one point during a major summit of the Roman Catholic hierarchy that ends this weekend, a senior conservative bishop took the floor inside the Vatican’s assembly hall and promptly charged his liberal peers with doing the devil’s work.
The three-week gathering, known as a synod, has erupted into a theological slugfest over Pope Francis’s vision for a more inclusive church, displaying the most bitter and public infighting since the heady days of Catholic reform in the 1960s.

Archbishop Tomash Peta of Kazakhstan captured the intensity of the divide, raising eyebrows — and even a few incredulous laughs — as he decried some of the policy changes being floated at the synod as having the scent of “infernal smoke.”
It was just another day at a synod that — more than any single event since Francis began his papacy in 2013 — has highlighted the extent his outreach to once-scorned Catholics has triggered a tug-of-war for the soul of the Catholic Church. More important, it underscored just how hard it may be for Francis to recast the church he serves in his image.
In fact, the pushback by traditionalists has been so strong at the synod that the chances of fast changes on hot-button family issues — including whether to offer communion to divorced and remarried Catholics and more welcoming language to homosexuals — have substantially dimmed, if not gone completely out.
As the synod races towards a close, there has been a last-ditch push to find common ground that could at least open the door to policy alterations. But some observers are already comparing Pope Francis to President Obama — a man whose reformist agenda was bogged down by a conservative Congress.
“Francis has the same problem that Obama had,” said the Rev. Thomas Reese, a senior analyst for the National Catholic Reporter. “He promised the world, but Congress wouldn’t let him deliver. If nothing much comes of this synod, I think people will give the pope a pass and blame the bishops for stopping change.”
For Francis, the synod — the Vatican’s second in 12 months on issues related to the family — sets up perhaps the most important decision of his papacy.
The 270 senior church officials from 122 countries are set to finish voting on a final document by Saturday. But Francis has the final say, holding the power to simply accept the synod’s recommendations, go beyond them, or withhold judgment to encourage further debate. All of those avenues, however, carry a measure of risk.
Using his powers to go beyond the synod’s recommendations could rouse the wrath of conservatives, some of whom are already openly questioning the trajectory of his papacy. Yet if the final recommendation of the synod falls short of liberal hopes, simply rubber stamping it, or encouraging more debate, could generate disappointment among Francis’s fans worldwide. They may begin to see him as a revolutionary in gestures and words, but not on substance.
If he agrees fully with the synod’s recommendations, “there might be a collapse of his popularity in world public opinion, but there might also be an increase of his popularity among Catholics,” said Massimo Franco, author of The Crisis of the Vatican Empire and a columnist at the Italian daily Corriere della Sera.
Even by Vatican standards, the level of drama at the synod has been extraordinary.
As recently as Wednesday, the Vatican strenuously denied a report in the Italian press that Francis had a small brain tumor. That came after the synod started off with a bang in early October, when another leak in the Italian press brought to light a letter to the pope signed by 13 conservative cardinals — including Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York — that seemed to question the pope’s handling of the synod process.
Adding to the mystery, some of the 13 denied they had signed the letter. Some Vatican watchers saw Francis’s recent warning to the synod not to be taken in by conspiracy theories as a thinly veiled reference to the missive. To some senior Vatican officials, the letter appears close to open sedition.
“The widespread opinion I perceived among the fathers has been a sense of disgust,” Bishop Marcello Semeraro, one of the senior clerics who will draft the final synod document, told the Vatican Insider web site.
Yet by telling bishops that nothing is off the table for discussion, Francis has undoubtedly lifted the lid on what can be examined — including his management style. Conservatives bishops, however, see him as having also opened a Pandora’s box, allowing a free flow of ideas that have startled some traditionalists and provoked a sharp backlash.
Of the many issues under debate here, two have emerged as the most polemic.
One is whether to grant divorced and remarried Catholics — who are technically committing adultery in the church’s eyes — access to communion. In addition, there is the question of whether to offer a warmer welcome to gays and lesbians, including striking references to homosexuality as “intrinsically disordered” from church teachings.
The divide is not just liberal vs conservative, but also geographic with prelates in Africa, for instance, denouncing the “Eurocentric” and “Western” fixation with issues such as homosexuality. Guinean Cardinal Robert Sarah linked the push for gay rights to abortion and Islamic extremism, comparing them all to what “Nazi-Fascism and Communism were in the 20th century.”
The vehemence of the backlash has shocked even some moderate conservatives, suggesting the rise of a Tea Party-like faction of bishops within the hierarchy.
“Some of them are talking now like this is Armageddon,” Archbishop Mark Coleridge of Brisbane, Australia, said in an interview with The Washington Post.
“They see themselves as the sons of goodness and others as the sons of darkness and evil. I have been very surprised by this apocalyptic view of things at the synod . . . This isn’t the way discussions are done,” he added.
The sniping has gone surprisingly public — and personal. The powerful conservative Cardinal George Pell, for instance, suggested in an interview with Le Figaro that an epic “battle” was taking shape in the church between the conservative theology of Benedict XVI and the liberal German Cardinal Walter Kasper, who is seen as a Francis ally and the architect of some of the most progressive measures being fielded at the synod.
Pell’s comment provoked a rare public rebuke this week from the German Cardinal Reinhard Marx, who called out Pell by name at a Vatican press conference.
“In the synod, we are not in a battle. We are not Ratzinger vs. Kasper,” Marx said, using Pope Benedict’s birth surname.“That is not okay.”
The plot thickened further on Thursday as an article appeared on a conservative Catholic Web site claiming to be from “ a very wise, knowledgeable and highly influential cleric” and entitled “The Failed Francis Pontificate.”
In it, the author writing under the pen name Don Pio Pace and using insider terminology, argues that the divided church is now “intrinsically ungovernable” and decried this “strange synod” for being overwhelming focused on “adulterous couples and homosexual couples.”
Some have also denounced the general sense of chauvinism hanging over the debates in which only male clerics have voting rights.
Maureen Kelleher, an American nun serving in one of the non-voting roles at synod, told the National Catholic Reporter that there were “times that I have felt the condescension so heavy, you could cut it with a knife.”
Speaking of women in general, she added: “I see a high level of non-acceptance of us as holding up half the sky.” source
HERE WE GO AGAIN! Colorado Cake Owner Under Fire For Not Making Cake For “Gay Wedding”
Posted: 22 Oct 2015 08:03 AM PDT
Jack Phillips and his bakery, Masterpiece Cakeshop, came under attack when Jack respectfully declined to create a wedding cake celebrating a same-sex marriage, even though same-sex marriage is not recognized in Colorado where Masterpiece Cakeshop is located. Jack declined because using his God-given talents to promote same-sex marriage would go against his religious belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. While Jack could not use his artistic skill to design and create a cake to celebrate a same-sex marriage, he offered to create cakes for the same-sex couple for different events or sell them pre-made items from the bakery.
Alliance Defending Freedom and its allies came to Jack’s defense after the two men contacted the ACLU and filed a complaint with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for sexual-orientation discrimination. They explained to the commission that Jack did not engage in sexual orientation discrimination because his objection was to the message the cake would send, not the people requesting the cake. They also explained that any state attempt to force Jack to create cakes celebrating same-sex marriages would violate the First Amendment. FULL REPORT

Secret Service officers found asleep on duty
Posted: 22 Oct 2015 07:58 AM PDT
A federal watchdog plans to send the U.S. Secret Service a formal warning Thursday about the security risks of overworking its employees — after discovering two Secret Service officers asleep at their posts, according to three government officials familiar with the findings. The Inspector General who oversees the Secret Service is expected to issue a management alert about the incident this week, as early as this afternoon. That formal designation indicates investigators have found a problem so urgent or sweeping that its requires swift attention from senior management.
The management alert stems from a routine check this August of alarms and communication equipment at facilities protected by the Secret Service, the three officials said. In the wake of radio failures when a fence-jumper got inside the White House in September 2014, auditors with the Department Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General rode around to various sites with Secret Service staff. They found one officer at an embassy post and another stationed at the White House complex who appeared to be asleep while on duty. FULL REPORT

The Pretribulation Rapture Of The Church As Found In The Book Of Revelation
Posted: 22 Oct 2015 07:48 AM PDT
(NTEB)HAD THE JEWS ACCEPTED THE PREACHING OF STEPHEN, INSTEAD OF REJECTING IT AND STONING HIM, THE DAY OF THE LORD WOULD HAVE HAPPENED RIGHT THERE IN ACTS 7, AND THE CHURCH AGE WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED.
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heardwas as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” Revelation 4:1,2
In our day and age, the Church Age, as inconceivable as it might sound, there are many Christians who assail and attack the Bible doctrine of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ. Scoffers go on to say, and wrongly so, that this doctrine was not taught before Mary McDonald and John Nelson Darby spoke about it in the early 1830’s. Some even say it was an invention of CI Scofield in his reference study Bible. Again, these statements have no bearing on the truth of any kind, as this article will endeavor to point out. Part of the “confusion” for some comes because there is more than one rapture in the Bible, and there is more than one time the phrase “come up hither” is used. A healthy dose of 2 Timothy 2:15 is the sure antidote for this pressing malady. So let’s get started, shall we? FULL REPORT

|6 Warning Signs of Spiritual Abuse
Posted: 22 Oct 2015 07:41 AM PDT
(J.Lee Grady) The church is called Word of Life Christian Center, but the tiny Pentecostal congregation in New Hartford, New York, is now known for death. It made headlines earlier this month when a 19-year-old member, Lucas Leonard, died during a so-called “counseling session” that involved 10 hours of beatings and interrogation. Six members of the church now face criminal charges for the incident, which also left Lucas’ 17-year-old brother, Christopher, hospitalized. Most of the group’s 20 members were afraid to speak to the media. But a former member, Chadwick Handville, who now lives in Arizona, told The New York Times that the church had become a cult.
“Everybody who’s gone there is a victim of abuse,” Handville said. “This was a cult. This was not a church; I don’t care what words they use on the building. The spirit of that place was not freedom.” How does this happen? Handville said Word of Life was not always unhealthy. But founder Jerry Irwin reportedly used manipulation, shaming, heavy-handed threats and even sleep deprivation to control the lives of church members. Even the parents of the young man who died felt helpless to stop the fatal beatings because members were never allowed to question church leadership. FULL REPORT

|High School Quarterback Penalized for Thanking God
Posted: 22 Oct 2015 07:34 AM PDT
(Todd Starnes) Mexico High School quarterback Dante Turo was raised by his parents to give glory to God—especially on the football field. “When you score touchdowns, when you make big plays, it’s easy to become proud,” Geno, his dad, told me. “It’s easy to take credit for yourself. I didn’t want my son to get caught up in that.” Geno, who lives in a small town north of Syracuse, New York, encouraged his son to find a subtle way to praise the Lord after making big plays.
“He wanted to do something at that moment to take credit away from himself and give glory to God,” Geno said. “God gives us the ability and the talent. As Christians, we want to be sure to give that back immediately.” So on Oct. 17 when Dante ran 73 yards for a touchdown, the 17-year-old quarterback raised a single finger to the sky. Dante was honoring the Lord. But a referee said he was taunting. Video shows the quarterback running into the end zone and briefly raising his finger before tossing the pigskin to the referee. As soon as he raised his finger, the ref tossed a flag. He was penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct—excessive celebration. FULL REPORT

|Justin Trudeau Vows to Bring 25000 Syrian Refugees to Canada
Posted: 22 Oct 2015 07:29 AM PDT
In addition to withdrawing Canadian warplanes from the U.S.-led bombing campaign against ISIS, Canada’s new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has vowed to reverse his predecessor Stephen Harper’s policy and accept 25,000 Syrian refugees in Canada by the end of the year. The Associated Press notes, without elaboration, that “some analysts have questioned whether Trudeau’s goal is realistic.” Increased Syrian immigration was one of the promises Trudeau made on the campaign trail. “Canadians get it, that this is about doing the right thing, it is about living up to the values that we cherish as a country and it is also an extraordinary way to continue to grow our country,” he said in early September.
“Canada must immediately accept 25,000 Syrian refugees, stop dragging its heels and understand that we must once again be the country that we like to think of ourselves as. This is something that goes beyond politics. It is about who we are and what we want to continue to be.” Last month, Trudeau spoke of organizing massive airlifts of refugees from Syria to Canada and dismissed questions about security by saying it was a simple question of “employing more case workers and increasing screening capacity,” as reported by the Globe and Mail. He described Harper’s concern about security as “quite frankly a distraction from a lack of political will to get it done.” FULL REPORT

|Spirit Of Antichrist Grows As Even The Jewish Press Says Jerusalem MUST BE DIVIDED!
Posted: 22 Oct 2015 07:08 AM PDT
In the last decade, the number of Jews living in East Jerusalem has remained static at 200,000. By contrast, the number of Palestinians has risen by 69,000 to almost 350,000, making them some 40 percent of the city’s population. A decade ago, Maj. Gen. (ret.) Giora Eiland warned Sharon, “There is great significance as to when we reach a permanent arrangement. It’s preferable that we don’t reach a situation where we go to a permanent arrangement when half the capital’s residents are Palestinians.”
That warning is about to be realized. Members of Netanyahu’s government did not make do with building in Jewish neighborhoods, but also sought changes on the Temple Mount. One privately commissioned report last year stated, “The confrontations are occurring on the backdrop of gradual but significant changes that were made to the Muslims’ entrance arrangement to the Temple Mount. The regular ascendance by Jews … a large portion of them activists who go up to the Mount a number of times with various groups … This increase in numbers is accompanied by the presence of… FULL REPORT

|Do We Need To Worry About Gog and Magog?
Posted: 22 Oct 2015 07:03 AM PDT
Almost every end-time teaching today has Gog/Magog invading Israel before the coming of Messiah. All the Biblical nations mentioned in this invasion have been matched up with today’s countries and are being carefully monitored. With Russia’s sudden reentry into the Middle East allied with Syria and Iran many are asking nervously, “is this Gog’s Axis of Evil? But could all our concern about Gog’s army be completely misplaced? The Bible only mentions Gog and Magog in two places: Ezekiel 38:1- 39:16 and Revelation 20:7-11. Ezekiel’s prophecy doesn’t give us a precise timing for Gog’s attack other than he will be summoned “in the latter years.”
But John’s revelation is very specific. He places Gog’s invasion at the end of the 1000-year reign of Messiah. So why are so many biblical prognosticators certain Gog will attack before Yeshua even gets here? Especially when the conditions needed to provoke his attack in Ezekiel’s prophecy depict the supernatural peace of the Messianic Age? Ezekiel’s prophecy describes an Israel – “restored from the sword, whose inhabitants are …all living securely, all of them…and without walls and having no bars or gates.” But how can that type of peace and security exist prior toYeshua coming and destroying Antichrist and the evil world system?

Our Time is Short
Read: Recommitting Your Life To God and Jesus Christ – Restoration and Forgiveness With God and Jesus Christ (Updated Version)
What is The Gospel?
God made everything out of nothing, including you and me. His main purpose in creation was to bring him pleasure.
The chief way in which we as humanity do this is through loving, obeying, and enjoying him perfectly.
Instead of this, we have sinned against our loving Creator and acted in high-handed rebellion.
God has vowed that he will righteously and lovingly judge sinners with eternal death.
But God, being merciful, loving, gracious, and just, sent his own son, Jesus Christ, in the likeness of man to live as a man; fulfilling his perfect requirements in the place of sinners; loving, obeying, and enjoying him perfectly.
And further, his son bore the eternal judgment of God upon the cross of Calvary, as he satisfied the eternal anger of God, standing in the place of sinners. God treated Jesus as a sinner, though he was perfectly sinless, that he might declare sinners as perfect.
This glorious transaction occurs as the sinner puts their faith (dependence, trust) in the Lord Jesus Christ as their substitute. God then charges Christ’s perfection to the sinner, and no longer views him as an enemy but instead an adopted son covered in the perfect righteousness of his son.
God furnished proof that this sacrifice was accepted by raising Jesus from the dead.
God will judge the world in righteousness and all of those who are not covered in the righteousness of Christ, depending on him for forgiveness, will be forced to stand on their own to bear the eternal anger of God.
Therefore, all must turn from sin and receive Christ Jesus as Lord.
Ready to start your new life with God?
Who do you think that I am?
With that brief question Jesus Christ confronted His followers with the most important issue they would ever face. He had spent much time with them and made some bold claims about His identity and authority. Now the time had come for them either to believe or deny His teachings.
Who do you say Jesus is? Your response to Him will determine not only your values and lifestyle, but your eternal destiny as well.
