Bugs give me the willies. Always have, always will. If I had my way, I’d strap a ten-pound can of Raid to my back and wear a pair of size thirteen stomping shoes for spider-smushing. Today I want you to face your fears and give you God’s guidance about how to exterminate them.
Known as the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley died in 1977 at the age of 42. Since then, conspiracy theories have emerged that Elvis is still alive, including some who recently suggested that Robert Joyce who pastors a small church, Household of Faith in Benton, Arkansas, is actually Elvis. Premier Christian News provides more details: Tom Mennel, watched a YouTube clip of the preacher and told The Express that he is convinced the pastor isn’t who he is claiming to be. He said: “I have been an Elvis fan since I was six-years-old and now I am 61-years-old. To me, Mr Joyce is Elvis and I do hope one day he will stand up and say who he is.” However, Mr Joyce has confirmed he is not Mr Presley who died on August 16th 1977.

Despite the mainline media referring to Ivermectin as a horse dewormer, when people claimed that it was an effective treatment for COVID, a major, peer-reviewed study confirmed the medication significantly reduced COVID deaths. The Daily Skeptic reports: Regular use of ivermectin led to a 100% reduction in hospitalisation rate, a 92% reduction in mortality rate and an 86% reduction in the risk of dying from a COVID-19 infection when compared to non-users, a major new study has found. The study, published in the medical journal Cureus, analysed data from 223,128 people from the city of Itajaí in Brazil and is the largest study of its kind, giving its findings a high degree of certainty. Senior author Dr. Flavio A. Cadegiani wrote on Twitter: “An observational study with the size and level of analysis as ours is hardly achieved and infeasible to be conducted as a randomised clinical trial. Conclusions are hard to be refuted. Data is data, regardless of your beliefs.” READ: Ivermectin Cuts Covid Mortality by 92%, Major Study Finds – Why is it …
If you are obsessed with watching the news, a study out of Texas Tech University suggests it could be bad for your health, Study Finds reports. In fact, the researchers noted that those who daily check the headlines will experience “significantly greater physical ill-being,” both physically, mentally and emotionally in the form of anxiety and stress. The study, which involved 1,100 people, added that one in six people had what researchers described as an addiction to the news. Study Finds reports: This can start interfering with people’s personal lives, leaving them feeling powerless and distressed about global events including the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and climate change. […] Almost three-quarters (73.6%) with severe levels of problematic news consumption experienced mental ill-being “quite a bit” or “very much” compared with just eight percent of all participants overall. The study also found that more than three in five (61%) news addicts experienced physical ill-being “quite a bit” or “very much” compared with just six percent of everyone else.

“Where are you going?” I was often asked this question, as a child, in the little village where I lived. Usually, I answered with conviction “nowhere”, since I had no real direction in my daily meanderings through the paths and woods where I wandered.

The room was cold, dark and damp but it had become my friend for I had lived there ever since I remembered. Heavy blankets of isolation, loneliness and fear insulated and protected me from the outside world.
According to a study conducted by the Institute of Governmental Studies based in the University of California, the downtowns of woke, Democrat-run cities have been largely abandoned, the New York Post reports. According to their study, the worst hit city was San Francisco, where nearly 70% of the people who once lived and worked in its downtown core may have left. The researchers came to this conclusion after tracking the GPS signals of over 18 million cellphone users in both the US and Canada. The New York Post reports the following results: Researchers at the Institute of Governmental Studies at the University of California at Berkeley found that San Francisco’s downtown was only 31% active between March and May, compared to pre-pandemic levels. That was followed by Cleveland, Ohio, with 36% of downtown recovery and Portland, Oregon, with 41%. Notably, all three cities are majority Democratic. […] Detroit and Chicago’s downtown areas did not fare much better in terms of activity, with just 42% and 43%, respectively, followed by Indianapolis and Minneapolis with 44% each. Raleigh, North …
A study, conducted by Boston University researchers and released in August 2022, concluded that the 60% of university students in the US experienced mental health problems in 2020 and 2021, Fox News reports. This was double the number reporting similar struggles in 2014. This increase showed up in different ways. This includes: An additional 96% of students reported eating problems, An increase of 135% reporting anxiety, 110% rise in those reporting depression, 64% increase in those who thought of suicide, and 46% increase in incidents of self-injury. Since university students were little impacted by the virus itself, most of these mental health issues were undoubtedly attributed to the lockdowns.
