Did COVID lockdowns just turn political?

With the number of COVID deaths declining in California, many are wondering why politicians are continuing to lock down the state? Well, according to Real Clear Politics, we may have been given a clue recently when Dr. Barbara Ferrer, the Los Angeles County Public Health Director, discussed the matter with school administrators. Apparently, someone recorded parts of that conference call.

Why are new COVID cases surging in France and Spain?

Europe is experiencing its second wave of COVID, with France reporting 10,000 new infections a day and Spain hitting 12,000 new cases a day. Several other European countries are also reporting increases as well. The Daily Mail explains: France‘s daily coronavirus cases have topped 10,000 for the first time while Spain’s have rocketed to 12,000.  The countries’ soaring case numbers have led to fears that the UK, which has seen its daily case figures steadily rise since August, could be heading in the same direction.  On Friday, the UK announced 3,539 new daily coronavirus cases – the highest toll in four months. […] And Spain announced a whopping 12,183 cases on Friday, bringing the total to above 566,300 just four months after the country’s low of 132 new cases on May 25.  But fortunately, the number of new deaths is not climbing as fast as the new cases during the second wave. The Daily Mail also explained why: Health bosses said most of the new infections in the UK were young people, many who only had mild or …

The news that’s about to happen: Who is your god, really?

There was a time when religion was important for everyone. Now, many parts of the world are secular and religion is only a personal choice. This brings problems for believers, whatever they believe in. This news video is several years old, but the problem has only grown since 2012. Note that it is from Al Jazeera, a news source owned by Muslims. They saw something happening to Christians and they were interested: I have learned, that there is always a new generation of children, and they will be adults soon. The children that we see in a playground will be voting in a few years. I remember talking to a pastor in my church, when I was a young man. I don’t remember what I was concerned about, but he told me to look at the little children in Sunday School, and know that they would be running the church in a few years. Their decisions would rule. When he told me that, my big concern got smaller, as I found a new perspective. He …

Abortionist who cut baby vocal chords has medical license suspended

An abortionist from Alabama who boasted on Twitter in 2018 that she cut the vocal chords of babies to stop them from screaming has lost her medical license. CBN reports: Dr. Leah N. Torres, an Alabama-based abortionist known for her brash and often offensive Twitter exploits, has had her medical license suspended. Torres is the doctor who sparked intense backlash in 2018, when she gloated via Twitter about cutting the vocal cords of pre-born babies while performing abortions. In the tweet, which she has since deleted, the abortionist wrote: “You know fetuses can’t scream, right?” “I transect the cord [first] so there’s really no opportunity, if they’re even far enough along to have a larynx,” she continued. “I won’t apologize for performing medicine. I’m also a ‘uterus ripper outer,’ if that’s how you’d like to describe hysterectomy.” READ: Abortionist Who Gloated About Cutting Preborn Baby Vocal Cords Loses Medical License Then there is the inconvenient truth that babies in the womb can feel pain.

Portland: Man arrested for allegedly trying to set fire to hotel gas line?

According to Andy Ngo, a man was recently arrested for allegedly trying to set fire to a gas line for a hotel in Portland: I am not familiar with this type of stuff, but I suspect setting fire to a gas pipeline could be extremely dangerous. Andy Ngo then cited a tweet of the woman who allegedly reported the incident. The police told her that the local DA would probably just release the guy in a few days: Not sure this is related, but….

In honour of global warming brace for a cold winter

Though those promoting man-made global warming love to point to CO2 as the reason for our warming. There are dozens of natural factors that have huge impacts on weather. Two of them are La Nina (little girl) and El Nino (little boy) that dramatically impact weather in North and South America. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a La Nina is setting up over the Pacific Ocean and it creates conditions that lead to more wildfires in the west as we are seeing in California, and stronger hurricanes in the Atlantic. Fox News explain: A La Nina climate pattern has appeared in the Pacific Ocean, which could lead to an increase in activity during the ongoing Atlantic hurricane season and create conditions more prone to wildfires out West, forecasters say. La Nina, Spanish for “little girl,” is a naturally occurring phenomenon in which sea surface temperatures across the central and eastern Pacific Ocean are cooler than average, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It’s the opposite of the warmer-than-average “El Nino” — and scientists believe this time the pattern will last through at least February.

A 5-minute video on China’s downward spiral

China’s recent dark turn can be blamed on its current despot for life Xi Jinping, who is turning the country back to the dark days of communism. And oh yeah, below is a video on the term “useful idiots,” referred to in the video above. Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the former communist Soviet Union, came up with the term to describe people who paved the way for the introduction of communism into a nation. We see them at work in the West today. Allen West explains:

New York City is special, but not that special

A few months back my wife, daughter and I had a chance to visit New York City and Times Square is impressive and the people friendly. But I was puzzled recently because there are actually two groups claiming that the Jewish Messiah will come from New York City. New York City is special, but not that special. Of course, New York is among the most famous cities of the world, but when we look at the Bible, Malachi prophesied that Bethlehem was chosen as the birthplace for the Messiah, because it wasn’t special: But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days. (Micah 5:2 ESV) Bethlehem was also the birthplace of King David (1 Samuel 16:1-3), who foreshadowed the coming of Christ. So, who are claiming that the Jewish Messiah will come from New York City? The first involves a religious group in …
