WASHINGTON – There’s been a big break for those who have any connection with health care who might have faced troubles because of moral or religious objections they had against something they were asked to do.
They’ll have a big, powerful friend in the new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division set up by the federal government’s Health and Human Services (HHS).
HHS’ Roger Severino, director of its Office of Civil Rights, said on a media call, “For too long governments big and small have treated conscience claims with hostility instead of protection. But change is coming and it begins here and now.”… more
U.S. Senate chaplain Barry Black brought down the house at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., on Thursday morning, sparking cheers and inspiring thousands of audience members to jump to their feet.
Black’s riveting keynote address began with him telling the thousands of people in attendance that, despite such public division, Republicans and Democrats in Congress actually get together each week for both a prayer breakfast and a Bible study.
“Our lawmakers get together each week for a prayer breakfast. One of the things that really inspires me … is the closing prayer when they stand and join hands and they pray together,” Black said. “To see Republican, Democrat, Independent praying together — I find myself thinking, ‘Where are the C-SPAN cameras when you need them?’”… more
This article is an oldie but very good. Something to smile about!
The first thing that crossed my mind after this tragedy happened was wondering if ISIS had anything to do with it. But ISIS certainly is not the only terrorist group which means to harm Americans.
Have we forgotten Antifa and their promises to destroy many cities and cause a revolution in America? They seemed to be in the headlines for many weeks. I suppose that many of us thought that this domestic terrorist group just faded away. Well maybe they’re back.

What a time to live as we are watching the Lord’s judgments starting to penetrate the DC swamp! I think the judgments are going to be so devastating that the nation is going to be shocked. I am sure that many politicians is DC are not sleeping well at night.
Proverbs 28:5 Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.
URGENT: SWAMP’S SEXUAL SINS
“Congresswoman Speier: U.S. House Paid $15 Million to Its Secret Sexual Harassment Victims” This is mind bending. Congress has a slush fund to pay the victims of Congressional sexual harassment! So far, they have paid out $15 million. This is our tax money they are using. What corruption to the highest levels. There is no bottom to this swamp.
Whether Judge Moore is guilty or innocent, the DC swamp has now set the standard. So when the Lord’s judgments hit DC over sexual sins there is going to be weeping and gnashing of teeth. By their own words, they are going to have step down. There could be dozens of them! Dems or Reps clean this putrid, rotten swamp of all the critters of this political elite destroying our nation. They have to go even if we have to march on DC with pitchforks!… more to read

Opinion: This is how we see Christians asleep and unaware of God wanting our attention!
Romans 13:11 ESV Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.
Revelation 3:2-3 ESV Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you.
1 Corinthians 15:51-54 Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
WASHINGTON – “The assassination plot directed at Republican members of Congress Wednesday morning is proof positive of Trump Derangement Syndrome,” former Rep. Michele Bachmann told WND.
“The political left is more than unhinged; they have fallen into a dangerous delusion of their own making,” she remarked after a gunman opened fire on GOP lawmakers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, Wednesday morning, wounding five people.
MedStar Washington Hospital tweeted in the afternoon that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s condition had been downgraded to critical, after he had been reported to be in stable condition all morning.
“The assassin was a Bernie Sanders volunteer, Rachel Maddow fan, avid follower of Comedy Central and of Bill Maher,” Bachmann noted…. read more
WASHINGTON — Some say that Christendom is facing more persecution right now than at any other time in modern history.
More than 200 million Christians in some 50 nations are facing high, very high or even extreme persecution. Just about every month more than 300 are killed for their faith.
Often believers facing such danger and living under such threat feel isolated and alone. That’s why evangelist Franklin Graham and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association called for the World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians this week in Washington, D.C.’s Mayflower Hotel…. read more

The US Department of Energy has declared an emergency at the Hanford, Washington nuclear waste storage site, after a cave-in of a tunnel used to store radioactive materials and equipment.
About 3,000 workers have taken cover at the 200 East Area of the sprawling complex, local media reported. By 10:30 am local time, the “take cover” orders have been expanded to the entire site, which is about half the size of Rhode Island.
A portion of a tunnel near the plutonium-uranium extraction plant (PUREX) collapsed early Tuesday morning local time, most likely from vibrations produced by nearby road work, KING-TV reported.
Initial reports spoke of a 4-foot (1.2 meter) hole, which was later expanded to 20 feet (6 meters) across, at the junction of two tunnels used in the 1960s to store highly radioactive materials and equipment, such as trains used to transport nuclear fuel rods…. read more
