CALIFORNIA SHOOTINGS LEAVE 5 DEAD IN 7 LOCATIONS, INCLUDING SCHOOL


At least five people are dead and 10 wounded following a series of apparently random shootings Tuesday morning at seven different locations in rural Northern California.

One of the locations was an elementary school, police said, where at least two students were sent to hospitals with injuries including a 6-year-old boy. The dead included the shooter, who was killed by police.

The shooting started at 7:52 a.m. Pacific Time when the gunman shot several of his own neighbors on Bobcat Lane in Rancho Tehama Reserve. Witnesses said one man died in his driveway as a result of the first round of gunfire.

Residents there said they had been complaining for weeks about the shooter firing his gun late at night and early mornings.

From his own subdivision, the shooter is believed to have used a stolen truck to travel toward the town. He opened fire on a woman and her daughter, who were in a Ford truck on the main road leading through town. Both were taken to hospital along with three children and an adult from the school…. read more

A ‘family quiz’ assigned to Virginia middle school students raised concerns among parents


Quiz.jpgThe superintendent of Hopewell Schools in Hopewell, Virginia has issued a statement after parents brought concerns to them about an assignment they said was inappropriate for their children’s middle school class, our affiliate WSET reported.

FROM FACEBOOK —– Hopewell City Public Schools 21 hours ago
Good Afternoon, here is the statement related to the worksheet that was distributed at Carter G. Woodson Middle School.

“We were made aware last evening of the Facebook coverage of the assignment given to students in the Family and Consumer Sciences program at our middle school. We immediately began to investigate. Upon further review, we have determined that a teacher downloaded this worksheet from the Internet. This content was not a part of the current and approved curriculum for this course nor was it in any way an appropriate learning tool for middle school aged children. This assignment was also not included or referenced in the teacher’s weekly lesson plans that are reviewed and approved in advance of instruction. Additional controls and School Board Office supports have been put in place. At this point, this matter has become a personnel issue and no further comment is appropriate.” Melody Hackney, Superintendent

Retired Lt. General Jerry Boykin, one of the founding members of the elite military division Delta Force told CBN News the best way to honor servicemen and women is through prayer.

The National Debate of Achieving Equality


From professional athletes to political parties to friends and family, there has arisen a great national debate over what constitutes equality, where we have been as a nation, where we are now, and where we hope to be in the future. The route toward solving racial division and promoting unity among mankind of all colors, ethnicities, and cultures is circuitous at best. There is plenty of disagreement on how to achieve this kind of peace. We can change laws and policies to guide such ideals, but the real roadblock is found in people’s hearts. People tend to judge others from the content of their own hearts. Government can go only so far, especially when it takes an ungodly form.

In the early 1600s the Jamestown and Plymouth settlers came to what became the United States to live and worship the one true God as they pleased. They considered the Judeo-Christian God as the one true God–and none other. This is apparent in their writings–both personal and public. There is only one true God–the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They believed Jesus the Messiah’s declaration as a foundational tenet of true faith: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.” Religion was defined as such. Freedom to worship without government mandates or interference was steeped in this belief; and, in reality, was the very premise of American government.

Despite what the leftists, the ungodly, the reformists, and even some so-called theologians would claim, the concept of government came from God. All men (mankind) are equal in the sight of God, God’s laws treat all the same, and all mankind has an opportunity for eternal life through Jesus Christ. God gave the law and all were treated the same under it. As Paul writes in Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” The disciples of Christ who developed this nation, did so patterned after the good and perfect government of God. Because of man, it is not perfect; but it places equality under the law as a foundational tenet.

Through the 17th-19th Centuries, it was well understood the uniqueness and eternal truth of the one true God found in Judeo-Christian religion–this is before people in the 20th Century twisted the meanings of words and terms. Only Christ on earth in his blood rendered all men equal before God and the hope of Christianity does not despise to see all citizens equal before the law. While this equality issue will not besettled until the return of Christ, it is us, as Christians, who are responsible for keeping the earthly flame of eternity before men–to preserve the flame of liberty in Christ to the benefit of mankind. We should treat others as we would like to be treated irrespective of the social and economic characteristics of their birth. By this example in Christ is how we bring empathy, understanding and equality to a dark and dying world. [Full Article by Bill Wilson – Daily Jot – dated 11-8-2017]

WATCH: NBC Reporter Tries To Use Texas Shooting To Embarrass Trump In South Korea, Fails Miserably


Ali VitaliA reporter from NBC News tried to embarrass President Donald Trump while he was in South Korea speaking at a joint press conference alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Seoul on Tuesday.

While many of the questions centered around the Korean Peninsula, Ali Vitali brought up the issue of gun control in an overt attempt to grandstand.

“You’ve talked about wanting to put extreme vetting on people trying to come into the United States,” Vitali said with a smug tone. “But I wonder if you would consider extreme vetting for people trying to buy a gun.”

Trump called her out for choosing his trip to Asia to bring up the issue of gun control…. read more

Why Has The Las Vegas Massacre Disappeared From The News Cycle?


It is without a doubt, our news cycle – in the age of 24/7 constant-connectedness – moves at a breakneck pace. With so much information and news reaching us, it’s easy to become overburdened and burned out on the world around us and the things taking place. It is true, too, that the mainstream media dictates what stays center in the mind of the public and what is allowed to fade away and be forgotten. It is of the utmost importance we remain aware – however exhaustive it may be – of stories that just don’t add up.

Enter the Las Vegas shooting; the worst mass-shooting in U.S. history…

On October 1, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a country music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, which overlooked the festival venue. Paddock’s onslaught left 58 dead and 546 injured.

A full month later, and we are still without any answers. Even more worryingly, the Vegas shooting has disappeared from any cable news channel. Even online, discussion over the shooting has all but vanished, save from the more conspiratorial corners of the web…. read more

Communism on the horizon for US?


On March 30, 1961, Ronald Reagan addressed the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce saying, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” According to a recent poll by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, America’s freedom is threatened by the Millennial generation. The poll showed that 58% of Millennials would prefer to live in a socialist, communist or fascist country. This is the next generation of our leaders.

The poll of 2,300 people age 16 and older also indicated that nearly 70% of Millennials do not even know what communism is, and they can’t distinguish it from socialism or fascism. Only half of those polled could identify the definition of capitalism. Before we push the panic button on the next generation, the poll also indicated that 69% of all Americans either don’t know the definition of communism or misidentify it. This is a problem that is systemic in American culture, probably for many reasons. The root of the trouble is most likely that our public schools are not teaching accurate history. For example, there is a disconnect between Millennials demanding free speech be protected (71%), yet preferring to live in a country where free speech is not protected (socialist, communist, or fascist). This is the culmination of an old-time Soviet Strategy.

Former Soviet KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov, who defected from the Soviet Union in 1970, conducted an interview in 1984 about Soviet infiltration methods and the plan to take over America. Bezmenov said that by 1970 the Soviet Union had already infiltrated the US through brainwashing left-leaning people in the news media, the entertainment industry, politics, business, education, and religion. He said that the Soviet Union used a brainwashing strategy called ideological subversion designed to change the perception of reality of every American so “no one is able to come to sensible conclusions” to defend themselves, their families, their community, and their country. Bezmenov said that the Soviets used brainwashed leftists to teach Marxism-Leninism ideology to several generations of American students.

Bezmenov said the process is nearly irreversible, but, “There must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of real patriotism, number one. Number two, to explain to them the real danger of socialist, communist, welfare state, big brother government…The moment at least part of the United States population is convinced that the danger is real, they have to force their government…to stop aiding communism.” Even today, leftists are confusing patriotism with nationalism, trying to say it is akin to fascism. These dictatorial governments require the abolishment of all religion. As Christians, we must fight this as an Ephesians 6:20 people, “…that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”  Christian Americans must see clearly and act decisively otherwise communism is on the horizon for our country.
