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
House Republicans have finally unveiled their new tax reform bill. Despite some delays, Republican leadership insists they are still on schedule to have the bill on President Trump’s desk by the end of the year.
“Our goal in the House is to get this bill out of the House, passed on the floor by Thanksgiving,” House Republican Conference Chair Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers told CBN News.
The hold-up centered on a proposal to end the federal income deduction for state and local taxes utilized by high tax states like New York and California. GOP lawmakers in those states are hesitant to support a plan that fails to preserve that deduction.
McMorris Rodgers told CBN News they delayed the release in order to get a bill that everyone in their conference can rally behind…. read more
Last week, ABC News reported on one man’s incredible act of self-sacrifice for his family in the face of approaching wildfires. Although his act certainly demonstrates a rare heroism—a quality that seems to be disappearing in the passivity of today’s culture—it also demonstrates what the Bible calls the greatest kind of love.
According to the ABC News article, a California family—a mother, father, son, and two grandparents—evacuated their home shortly before it went up in flames along with their entire ranch and all of their possessions. As they drove away from their burning house, emergency response personnel saw the Tamayo family from a helicopter and landed to take them to safety. Unfortunately, however, the helicopter could only fit four people. One member of the Tamayo family would have to stay behind.
The father, Pepe, told the helicopter crew to take his family, choosing to remain on the ground. The reporter writes, “Pepe tried hard not [to] show his fear, but the flames were close.” The heroic father even called his daughter, who was not with the rest of the family, and told her, “[I]f I don’t see you again, remember I love you.”… read more
Psalm 107:33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground; A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
These massive fires being called the worst in California history ignited right as the state passed a law promoting transgenderism. People can actually go to jail for referring to a man as “he.”
The Bible is very clear that God created us as male and female. The Hard Left with their reprobate minds hate God and in every possible way they want to attack what God created. So in their reprobate minds, they are living in a delusion and want to destroy that mankind was created male and female. They believe we are not created as a certain gender, but whatever a person wants to be, including no gender! Now they are creating laws to force us to go along with their delusion and rebellion against God’s word.
God will only let this rebellion go so far. These record breaking fires started right after this transgendered law was passed. I really believe that these fires are just the beginning. Because this state has killed so many babies and leads the way in the homosexual agenda, that massive earthquakes are on the way. The quakes will hit with timing like these fires. Everyone will be able to connect the sinful event with the destruction of California…. read more
Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection.
The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.
Modern medicine allows those with HIV to live longer lives and nearly eliminates the possibility of transmission, according to state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), authors of the bill.
“Today California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals,” Wiener said in a statement. “HIV should be treated like all other serious infectious diseases, and that’s what SB 239 does.”…. read more
Events in September 2017, including but not limited to the 8.1 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Mexico in early September, followed by a 7.1 magnitude on the 19th, along with the evacuations happening now where 50,000 are being forced to flee their homes amid fears Mount Agung, in Bali, could erupt at any moment, and a state of emergency that has been declared on the Vanuatu island of Ambae as the Monaro volcano continues to erupt, show that we are seeing a level of earth activity that is increasingly concerning.
Over the past weekend, Mexico was again shaken up by another 6.2 magnitude earthquake and no less than 26 smaller earthquakes have rattled California in a 24 hour period, and 176 earthquakes in a seven day period, causing some serious alarm over the much-talked about “big one” hitting along the 800-mile fissure that runs almost the length of California, called the San Andreas Fault.
“It’s a different system,” says Matthew Blackett, Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography and Natural Hazards at Britain’s Coventry University, “But the system that is causing these quakes in Mexico is by and large similar to what’s happening in California.” In both locations, tectonic plates are sliding past one another…. read more
The leader of a Missionary Baptist assembly in California is defending the use of a profane secular rap song during a recent Sunday service, saying that he believes the men of the Scriptures likely used edgy language and that he curses in prayer sometimes himself.
Several youth performed a dance to Jay-Z’s “The Story of O.J.” on July 30 before the congregation of Tree of Life Missionary Baptist Church as a lead-in to a sermon delivered by Marcus Murchinson. He had reportedly advised the congregation weeks in advance that his message would be “out of the box” and also provided a disclaimer prior to the interpretive dance.
The song, which repeatedly uses the “n” word in reference to African Americans, also is blotted with expletives.
“Financial freedom my only hope/[Expletive] livin’ rich and dyin’ broke/I bought some artwork for one million/Two years later, that [expletive] worth two million/Few years later, that [expletive] worth eight million/I can’t wait to give this [expletive] to my children,” the lyrics read in part… read more
Should We Be Cussing Or Using Profanity Words
WHAT DOES GOD SAY ABOUT OUR MOUTH? Under openbible.info here is a list of scriptures of what God says about what we say concerning our mouth and heart. Yes, our heart is involved when we speak. Let’s take a look below at a couple of scriptures:
Colossians 3:8 ESV But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.
Ephesians 4:29 ESV Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.….
See how the ground has deformed around the Yellowstone supervolcano
- Since the swarm began on June 12, there have been over 1,562 earthquakes
- They’ve continued to monitor its activity, and largest so far was magnitude 4.4
- The quakes release uplift-causing pressure, allowing ground to sink back down
- Still, experts say the risk of an eruption remains low, with alert level at normal
As small earthquakes continue to rumble around the Yellowstone supervolcano in Wyoming, scientists have revealed new evidence of the changes going on beneath the ground.
A new map from the US Geological Survey shows how the ground around the Yellowstone caldera has deformed over the span of two years, as the quakes release uplift-causing pressure, allowing the ground to sink back down.
This activity is typically linked to changes in magma and gases deep below the surface – but for now, the experts say there’s no cause for worry…. read more
With 8 threatening volcanoes, USGS says California deserves close monitoring
With the world’s top volcanologists heading to Portland, Ore., on Aug. 14 for the first international volcanology assembly held in the U.S. since 1989, the many famous, prominent and dangerous volcanoes of the West Coast will be the subject of field trips and much discussion.
Throughout the Cascade Range to southern California, the West Coast is home to most of the country’s highest-threat volcanoes, as ranked by the United State Geological Survey. And California has its share.
While Mount Shasta unsurprisingly tops USGS’s list of very-high threat volcanoes in California, there are seven other volcanic areas in the state that are also young, nervy, jacked up on magma and “likely to erupt.”… read more
