Americans will have a 1 in 179 chance of being killed if the current murder rate trend continues, study reports

A recent study conducted by Just Facts reports that if the current murder rate continues that Americans will have a one in 179 chance of being murdered. Breitbart provides more details on the study: The organization explained in a study published on November 4: Based on a misunderstanding of new FBI data, NewsNation is reporting that 14,677 murders occurred in the U.S. during 2021, a supposedly large decline from 2020. In reality, that figure is far from complete, and comprehensive records from death certificates show that about 24,493 people were murdered in 2021. … Murders have become so common over the past two years that if the murder rate remains at the 2021 level, one out of every 179 people in the U.S. will eventually be murdered. Yet, certain politicians and media outlets are downplaying this bloodshed, while others are blaming it on Covid—a claim at odds with the facts. Just Facts argues that the FBI and legacy media are trying to downplay the murder epidemic by citing incomplete data. They are using a system …

Activists trying to drive away Twitter advertisers

Elon Musk recently purchased Twitter with plans to return free speech to the once heavily censored anti-conservative social media platform. But Musk is now reporting that activist groups are fighting back and organizing a campaign to have corporations stop advertising on Twitter. Musk reports that there has already been a significant drop in revenue. The Post Millennial provides more details: Twitter owner Elon Musk says that his newly purchased website Twitter has seen a “massive drop” in revenue due to activist groups pressuring Twitter, despite nothing having changed in content moderation. Musk tweeted on Friday, “Twitter has had a massive drop in revenue, due to activist groups pressuring advertisers, even though nothing has changed with content moderation and we did everything we could to appease the activists. Extremely messed up! They’re trying to destroy free speech in America.” Some major corporations that have allegedly already stopped advertising on Twitter, include General Mills, Audi, Pfizer, and Volkswagen.

Why is that Danish preacher in jail … in Florida?

Have you heard of a man named Torben Sondergaard? Probably not, but you can expect to hear much more, soon. I learned a few things, for the first time, recently, and the story is puzzling. The story that we have is; A man, who apparently worked as a Christian street preacher, in Denmark, left his home country and moved to the United States. He had argued with the authorities in Denmark, and he believed he was in danger of being persecuted. In the U.S. he was detained for smuggling weapons from Mexico. He claimed that he was innocent and that he had never been in Mexico or near the Mexican border. Also, he had never smuggled weapons, or used drugs, at any time. From his own words, when the authorities dropped the weapons accusations, he expected to be released, on bail. At that time, he did not get what he expected, he was kept in jail, in solitary confinement, and no one told him why. Apparently, he was recently released from solitary, and he began …

Leading economists are 100% certain that the US will be in a recession in 2023

Based on several indicators, leading economists are predicting that there is a 100% chance that America will enter a recession in 2023. CBN provides more details: “The latest Bloomberg projections show a 100 percent chance of a recession in the next year. And one of the world’s top credit rating agencies now says the US Gross Domestic Product will grow by just half a percent next year, down from earlier projections.“ In addressing the probability of a recession, Phil Kerpen, an American market policy analyst, told CBN: “I think it’s unlikely that it can be avoided. The question is how deep and how long it will be.” The recession is being largely driven by rapidly rising interest rates being used to combat inflation, which was caused by reckless government overspending.

It wasn’t the answer the NY Times was looking for when it asked who was the biggest threat to democracy

I am sure it wasn’t the answer that the New York Times was looking for when it conducted a survey to find out who registered voters considered to be the biggest threat to democracy. I suspect the NY Times was wanting the answer to be former President Donald Trump, but instead, Americans said that the mainstream media are the biggest threat to democracy. Fox News reports: Stunning data from a New York Times/Siena poll find the majority of registered voters believe the media is a “threat” to democracy.  The poll details released Tuesday showed that a whopping 71% of the 792 registered voters questioned say “American democracy is currently under threat.” Among those who fear for democracy, 84% of them, or roughly 60% of all registered voters, view “mainstream media” as some sort of threat. A majority, 59%, call the media a “major threat to democracy” while an additional 25% call it a “minor threat to democracy.” Only 15% who say democracy is under threat do not blame the media.

American inflation hits 40-year high in September

A month after US President Joe Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law on Aug 16, 2022, America’s inflation rate hit another 40-year high in September. It was a higher-than-expected increase. The New York Post reports: US inflation surged 8.2% in September — a steeper-than-expected increase as stubbornly high rent and food costs look poised to ensure another sharp Federal Reserve interest rate hike next month. The September reading of the Labor Department’s Consumer Price Index, a closely watched measure of the costs of goods and services, showed a 0.4% increase compared to August — more than economists expected. Core inflation, which excludes volatile food and gas prices, spiked 6.6% in September, up from 6.3% in August. The annual core increase was the largest of its kind since August 1982. On a monthly basis, core prices increased 0.6%. READ: Inflation hits 8.2% in September — higher than expected — as rent, food prices soar Economists were warning back in August that the Democrat’s Inflation Reduction Act would actually increase inflation not end it.

Masterpiece Bakeshop is back in court again

Jack Phillips, a Christian baker based in Lakewood, Colorado, is back in court again after a transgender woman asked his company, Masterpiece Cakeshop, to make a cake celebrating her transition to a woman, CBN reports. The shop had initially agreed to make the cake, but then changed its mind, when told about the intent of the cake. The transgender woman took the shop to the Colorado Human Rights Commission which ruled the baking company had violated the transgender woman’s rights by refusing to make the cake. Phillips, who is being represented by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), stated in the first court case that he did not agree with the idea that a person could change genders, After losing the initial court challenge, Phillips is appealing to Colorado’s Supreme Court arguing that people should not be forced to support or promote views that they do not agree with, calling it a violation of a person’s free speech. ADF noted: “No American should be bullied or banished from the marketplace simply for living and working consistently with …

Report: Biden’s extremist policies have cut oil production in the US by 3 million barrels a day

According to a report by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, President Joe Biden’s oil and gas policies are as much the reason for the recent escalation in gas prices as OPEC+’s decision to cut oil production, Breitbart reports. There was a dramatic rise in gas prices across North America recently, after OPEC+, which includes Russia, announced it would be reducing oil production by two million barrels a day. However, the committee countered that if Biden’s policies had maintained the direction of the previous administration, the increased oil production in the US would have more than countered this OPEC+ cut. The group estimated that Biden’s extreme environmental policies done in the name of climate change have reduced US oil production by upwards of three million barrels a day. Breitbart provides more details: According to the study, Biden’s war on American energy will cost the United States nearly $100 billion in output every year, which translates to between two and three million barrels of oil a day, the same amount of production OPEC+ cut Wednesday. Yet Biden …

US debt hits $31,000,000,000,000 (trillion)

According to reports, the debt of the US Federal government just surpassed $31 trillion this year. This is the highest level it has ever been and nearly $8 trillion was added to the debt since Joe Biden became president in 2020. Of course, this is now being compounded by higher interest rates that are being raised in an effort to combat inflation. These higher interest payments will need to be paid with either higher taxes and/or reduced government spending. CBN explains: Owen Zidar, a Princeton economist, explains that rising interest rates will exacerbate the nation’s growing debt issues and make the debt itself more costly. The Federal Reserve has raised rates several times this year in an effort to tamp down inflation. “I think the point here is if you weren’t worried about the debt before, you should be — and if you were worried before, you should be even more worried,” Zidar said.

Study: Americans $4,200 poorer since Biden became president

A study conducted by the Heritage Foundation has concluded that Americans are $4,200 poorer since Joe Biden was elected president in 2020, the New York Post reports. This is due to inflation and higher interest rates that resulted in living costs exceeding any wage increases over the past two years. The NY Post provides more details: Their analysis found that the average American has lost about $3,000 in annual purchasing power because consumer prices, which have risen 12.7% since January 2021, have spiked significantly faster the wages. Wages have risen just 8% over the same period, which has effectively resulted in a pay cut for Americans struggling to pay for daily necessities including food, gas and rent. Higher interest rates and borrowing costs have also reduced the average person’s purchasing power by another $1,200, according to the report. Simply put, working Americans are $4,200 poorer today than when Biden took office,” said EJ Antoni, a research fellow in regional economics with the Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis.

US natural gas company warns of blackouts this winter if pipeline shut down

Spire Energy, a natural gas supplier based in Missouri, just sent out an email to all its customers warning that they should brace for blackouts this winter if US President Joe Biden shuts down another American pipeline. Spire Energy provides natural gas to 1.7 million people in Mississippi, Missouri and Alabaman. According to the Western Journal, the STL pipeline that runs between Illinois and Missouri went into service in 2019 and supplies gas not only to 650,000 homes in St Louis and area but also in neighbouring states. Shortly after it went into operation, the Environmental Defense Fund sued the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) stating it had not provided the proper permits for the pipeline. This prompted an emergency review of the STL pipeline scheduled for Nov 18, 2021. If this pipeline is shut down, it will result in natural gas shortages this winter.

Mile-wide Christians

A recent poll conducted by the Cultural Research Center of Arizona Christian University headed by George Barna uncovered some questionable beliefs about those who self-identify as Christians in America. In the poll, about 69% of Americans (176 million) self-identified as Christian. And though that number seem impressive, it falls inline with that old saying of being a mile wide, but only one inch deep. The poll revealed that self-identification does not necessarily refer to a Biblical definition of Christianity. They are Christian only in the sense that they grew up in what could loosely be described as a Christian home. They don’t regularly attend religious services, but if they did, it would be a Christian one. So in that sense they follow the Christian tradition, more than they follow Christian beliefs. And this showed up, as the poll exposed the actual beliefs of these self-identifying Christians: For example, 72% of self-identified Christians believe that everyone is basically good. And this almost perfectly corresponds with their response to the another question, where only 34% said that …

OPEC says NO, after Biden begs for more oil

After effectively shutting down America’s oil industry by cancelling oil and gas leases and, as well, the Keystone pipeline, last week US President Joe Biden was begging OPEC to increase oil production as American citizens are being pummelled with 40%+ increase in gas prices since January this year. Well, according to Reuters, OPEC has decided. The answer is ‘No’. They will not be increasing oil production. READ: OPEC+ Rejects Biden’s Call to Pump More Oil This is what happens when you make yourself dependent on the charity of others in your attempt to appease the environmental radicals in the Democrat Party. Apparently, Russia is now an unofficial member of OPEC, an international oil cartel that includes some of America’s dearest friends such as Iran, that limits production to keep oil prices high.

Study: Murder increase in major US cities in 2020 unprecedented

According to a study recently published by the National Commission of COVID-19 and Criminal Justice, there has been significant increase in murders in major American cities in 2020 over 2019. This included a 43% increase in murders in New York City. The study described the year over year increase as being without precedent in modern times. The Western Journal explains: The report from the National Commission of COVID-19 and Criminal Justice titled “Pandemic, Social Unrest, and Crime in U.S. Cities” said homicide rates in 34 cities jumped 30 percent from 2019 to 2020. “The coronavirus pandemic and protests over police violence are likely contributors, along with yet-to-be-identified additional factors,” the authors of the report wrote. According to the report, a nation on edge amid COVID-19 fears and lockdowns was already topping 2019 in homicides when Black Lives Matter-fueled protests erupted in cities such as Minneapolis and Kenosha, Wisconsin. Homicide rates “increased significantly in June, well after the pandemic began, coinciding with the death of George Floyd and the mass protests that followed. Overall, homicide rates …

Will fighting climate change stop an Alien invasion?

As US President Joe Bind signed several executive orders on his first day in office, including stopping the Keystone pipeline and banning fracking on government land, he was threatening the livelihoods of tens of thousands of Americans. But several prominent Democrats rose up to defend Biden’s decisions. This included MSNBC host, Joy Reid, who said our failure to fight climate change may result in an invasion by Aliens from outer space. Apparently, Star Wars is a documentary, not a movie. The Daily Caller reports: MSNBC host Joy Reid said Wednesday that if aliens ever did attack earth, it might be because humans failed to take the proper steps to fight climate change. Reid spoke with White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy about the executive orders President Joe Biden had signed earlier in the day, making climate change a national security priority forms administration. “The actions include elevating climate change to a national security priority, suspending new leases for natural gas and oil development on federal lands and water, and directing the government to rely …

The Mad Hatter’s Invitation

The Mad Hatter’s tea party is in full swing and we’re all invited. Like it or not the craziness of the American elections and that country’s fall into violent insanity affects us all. That the election was not clean is beyond dispute. Neither is the influence of anti-Conservative violence and the biases of the media and social media giants.  If you don’t believe me about the media, just remember that the more adjectives one uses, the less objective they are. Then listen to CBC or CNN and how they cover different political viewpoints. Since Donald Trump became president four years ago the left followed the urging of Hillary Clinton and took the streets. The protests were fed into a frenzy by the Democratic leadership and eventually the anti-Trump movement became thug led riots. Often people wearing Trump’s, Make America Great Again hats were assaulted and threatened. Anyone who voiced support for Trump put themselves and their families at risk of physical harm, job loss, and public shaming. This is not democracy. This is mob rule. …

‘Pretty impressive’ & ‘Very strange’ mail-in votes

The Daily Wire writes: The morning following Election Day, with no declared winner, President Donald Trump sounded off about his seeming lead dissipating overnight in key states, such as Michigan, Pennsylvanian, and Nevada.  “Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled,” the president tweeted. “Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted,” he said. “VERY STRANGE.” READ: ‘VERY STRANGE’: Trump: Watched My Lead ‘Magically Disappear As Surprise Ballot Dumps’ Counted RELATED: Texas county commissioner and three others arrested over election that was allegedly stolen through mail ballot fraud AND Confessions of a voter fraud: I was a master at fixing mail-in ballots

Poll: 98% of US socialists reject Biblical worldview

A recent poll of 2,000 Americans conducted by the Cultural Research Center discovered that 98% of those who believe in Socialism reject Christianity and its Biblical world view. In its news release, the Cultural Research Center stated: More than eight out of ten (83%) integrated disciples (i.e., individuals who possess a biblical worldview) prefer capitalism to socialism. In comparison, just half of those who do not have that worldview prefer capitalism (50%). Stated differently, 98% of the adults who prefer socialism do not have a biblical worldview! This shouldn’t come as a surprise as radical leftist rioters in Portland were caught a few weeks back burning Bibles. The poll, conducted by Barna Research Center, was interesting in another way as well. In addition to asking what people believed, it also asked what people did, to ensure that what they did corresponded with what they believed. In an interview with the Western Journal, George Barna explained the reasoning behind this: “People do what they believe. So if you tell me you believe something but you’re not willing to act on …

US weekly unemployment claims drop below 1 million

The US economic recovery is ahead of schedule. For the first time since the coronavirus lockdowns began, the number of people making unemployment claims fell below the one million mark, on a weekly measure. The Daily Wire explains: During the week ending on Aug. 8, roughly 963,000 workers filed unemployment claims, according to data released by the Department of Labor on Thursday. The number came in lower than expected as economists predicted that claims numbers would remain about the 1 million mark, according to Fox Business. […] The better than expected unemployment report is another sign that the U.S. economy may be on the path to recovery despite fears of a second wave of the disease and some states re-imposing strict lockdown orders to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The unemployment rate peaked at 15% in April but fell to 10.2% in July. READ: Weekly Unemployment Claims Beat Expectations, Fall Under 1M For First Time Since Pandemic Began

Shane Warren shares a prophetic vision of America

I hadn’t heard of Shane Warren, who pastors as church called The Assembly in West Monroe, LA. But I was familiar with West Monroe, which is home of the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty fame. I think Warren received this prophetic vision back in 2013 and the video is from an interview he did on the Jim Bakker show in 2018, when Warren shared what he saw.

VIDEOS: Who are communism’s ‘useful idiots’?

Below are a three videos that may help explains the recent activities of the radical left in America. In the first video, former Lieutenant Colonel Allen West explains the term ‘useful idiots’, that was coined by Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the Soviet Union, to describe those who paved the way for the introduction of communism into a nation. In the second video, G. Edward Griffin, discusses the book Color, Communism and Commons Sense, that was written by a Black man, Manning Johnson, who left the communist movement in the early 1920s, when he realized the Marxists wanted to use the racial problems in the US to destroy America. And of course, I would be completely remiss, if I didn’t include a video of one the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement who says she is a trained Marxist:
