What the parole board said about the alleged murderer

Myles Sanderson, along with his brother Damien, are accused of murdering 10 people and injuring 18 on the James Bay Cree Nation and the town of Weldon in Saskatchewan, Canada on Sunday, Sept 4, 2022. Global News reports that Myles had been released by the Parole Board earlier this year. Sanderson, who was sentenced in 2018, was initially paroled in August 2021, and his parole was suspended in Nov. 2021 due to violations, Global News reports. Three months later, he was released on parole a second time, and Global News provides the details on what the parole board said about Sanderson at his second release: “To your benefit, you do seem to have maintained sobriety, obtained employment, engaged a therapist, were engaged in cultural ceremonies, had obtained a home for your family, and appeared to have been making good progress on reintegration,” the Board wrote. “It is the Board’s opinion that you will not present an undue risk to society if released on statutory release and that your release will contribute to the protection of …

Chile rejects socialist constitution

There was a plebiscite just held in Chile that would make socialism the overriding force in the country’s constitution. It was intended to replace a constitution imposed by a military dictatorship four decades earlier. The new constitution was being promoted by its left-wing president, Gabril Boric, who promised it would usher in a new era of wokeness for the country. Boric made sure that socialist activists played a key role in drawing up the new constitution. However, in the vote held on Sunday, September 4, 2022, 61.9% of Chileans rejected Boric’s socialist constitution, with only 38.1% supporting it. So what was in Boric’s new socialist constitution? Hotair explains: “It’s not that often these days that we have the chance to report on some genuinely good news, but this clearly appears to be a positive development for the people of Chile. The proposal from the socialists would have created an ocean of “free stuff” for the people and disincentivized work while offering no plan to pay for it all. Chile’s copper mining industry – the largest …

Did the Levites serve as police in ancient Israel?

According to the Mosaic Law, the tribe of Levi did not receive an inheritance in the Promised Land, instead the 11 remaining tribes set aside 48 cities across Israel where the Levites were allowed to live. The Levites were also given pasture land around those cities, but did not actually own the land themselves, as the ownership remained with the tribe. Though the Levites filled an important religious role in Israel, it is important to note, that not all Levites could work as priests, only those who were descendants of Aaron, Israel’s first High Priest were allowed to fill the role. Spread across Israel in this way, the Levites were responsible for teaching the law, setting up and maintaining the tabernacle and later the temple. They undoubtedly helped with the logistics of the sacrifices and also played musical instruments and sang in choirs as part of the worship. But one little-known role that the Levites held in Jewish society was that of police. We see the first indicator of this in Numbers, when we are …

France: 40% of under-35s seriously believe in witchcraft

Surveys in France reveal that there is a growing interest in witchcraft in that country, with one finding that upwards of 40% of those under the age of 35 ‘seriously’ believe in witchcraft, Breitbart reports. The surveys were conducted by Ifop, a French opinion and marketing firm, in 2020 and 2022. The 2020 survey found: Ifop’s 2022 survey reported: The problem came to light after a group blackmailed French soccer star, Paul Pogba, by accusing him of casting spells. Breitbart provides the details: Paul Pogba, a star of the French national football (soccer) squad who currently plays for Italian side Juventus, allegedly paid off a group of blackmailers, including his own brother, 100,000 euros ($100,100) in April, and claimed masked men armed with rifles threatened him in a Paris apartment the month prior. The blackmailers, believed to be childhood friends of Pogba, are said to have demanded as much as 13 million euros. The case became public after Mathias Pogba began posting tweets regarding his brother, including allegations that Paul had used witchcraft to cast spells …

France to restart all its nuclear reactors by winter

After being conned and intimidated by the environmental fanatics, France hopes to have all its nuclear reactors restarted by winter. According to France24, the country had shut down 32 of its 56 reactors. For the record, France relies on nuclear for 67% of its electricity. Only 7% of its electricity comes from natural gas, meaning the Russian-Ukraine war was having a minimal impact. Somehow, the environmental extremists convinced French politicians to include nuclear in their fight to lower CO2 emissions. Despite this, there are still concerns that there will be energy rationing this winter, as French politicians have embraced unreliable and expensive solar and wind power. French citizens may yet face rolling blackouts, where they will not have electricity for two hours at a time during the winter. Many French citizens use electricity to heat their homes.

A few days ago, an electricity provider in Colorado, allegedly prevented over …

Exorcism, Casting Our Demons: Do we still do that?

Do you remember the movie “The Exorcist”? Did you watch it? That film is a horror movie from 1973. I am old enough to remember when everyone was watching it, and talking about it. Strangely, I have never seen the movie, but all my friends did. For a few weeks, they all became religious. To help us remember, here is a video trailer: That is scary! The whole point of a horror movie is to entertain us and to make a lot of money for the producers. I’m sure “The Exorcist” did both. It was the first horror movie nominated for an Academy Award, and the highest-grossing horror movie, until 2017. We are still entertained by exorcism stories. Recently, a news story came from a Bible Camp in Saskatchewan, Canada. At least one adult, and some boys at the camp, did an exorcism on one boy. So far, the police have investigated, but they have not brought criminal charges. Apparently, exorcism is not illegal in Canada. Some people from the Camp claim that they did …

Canada: Trudeau’s anti-racist program terminated because of racism?

Earlier, this year, the Liberal government of Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, had provided taxpayer funds to Community Media Advocacy Center to develop an anti-racism strategy. However, the federal government was allegedly forced to terminate the contract with the group in late August, after tweets surfaced made by the group’s chief consultant, Laith Marouf. The Blaze provides more of the alleged details: Marouf, a Palestinian-Syrian activist, has a history of well-documented anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist comments, particularly on his now-locked Twitter account, for which the bio reads: “Decolonizing the media since 1999.” One of his tweets said: “You know all those loud mouthed bags of human feces, aka the Jewish White Supremacists; when we liberate Palestine and they have to go back to where they come from, they will return to being low voiced bitches of thier [sic] Christian/Secular White Supremacist Masters.” […] In a posting on July 8, 2022, he attacked French Canadians, writing: “French Frogs are very tasty roasted. Go back to your franco gutter.” READ: Justin Trudeau’s anti-racist program flops after top proponent exposed as …

Short-Term Gratification vs Long-Term Satisfaction

By Dr Michael L. Brown

A few years ago, I was buying some new clothes to wear on a series of episodes on Christian TV. The salesman, a seasoned pro with a very good eye, picked out some blazers, slacks, and shirts, and after trying them on, I made my final selection. It was only then that I discovered the prices on these items, expressing my surprise out loud. In response, the salesman said something that stayed with me. Allow me to share it with you here.
