Christians: Would You Take a Bullet for Jesus?

Christian Post - Jesus was not only willing to die for our sins, but He actually went through with it. And the Oregon believers who acknowledged Christ instantly became martyrs. They stood strong in the face of certain death. And they will enjoy paradise forever because their Savior is faithful, and He was not caught off guard by a gunman's hateful rampage.

In fact, Jesus told His followers to expect this sort of thing. If you are a Christian, it just goes with the territory. It's the cross which many believers in the world have been called to carry.

David Limbaugh: Facts Don't Work on Gun Control, so Obama Uses Emotion

Townhall.Com - In his speech on the Umpqua Community College shooting in Oregon last week, President Obama sounded more upset about America's gun laws than about the horrific massacre.

New Global Police - Why exactly does Obama want the “Strong Cities Network”?

FPM - The Obama administration plans to create a global police force that counters “violent extremism” in the United States and elsewhere.

The problem is that in Obama-speak “violent extremism” refers not only to jihadists wishing to harm Americans but also to conservatives and Tea Party activists. Just ask all the law-abiding right-of-center nonprofit groups targeted by Lois Lerner’s IRS during the Obama presidency.

“Refugee Warriors” populate United Nations camps (where the US gets refugees)

Refugee Resettlement Watch - Last week the Washington Examiner published a lengthy piece by Jonathan Foreman entitled, ‘Does foreign aid really do good?’ It addresses in great detail what we already know—mostly ‘humanitarian aid’ is a waste of money!

We take the majority of our Syrian refugees from UN camps!

I urge you to read it all, however, here (below) is one section I wanted to highlight because: the US State Department is taking the vast majority of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) refugee referrals from those camps—-Zaatari is one of them.

Someone published thousands of photos of historic US space missions — here are some amazing ones

Business Insider - You may think you've seen photos of the moon landing before, but you haven't like this.

The 9,200 high-resolution images posted to the Project Apollo Archive were taken during every manned mission to the moon, both on the way there and back. 

These aren't just photos of the moon's surface either. The entire film reels were uploaded so you can see the blurry outtakes along with some candid shots of astronauts shaving while onboard.

Scrolling through the photos, it feels like watching someone else's vacation — but this one just takes place on a spaceship.

The project's lead, Kipp Teague, told The Planetary Society that the collection includes every single photo taken on the moon's surface, along with those from the voyage there and back. His Apollo Archives project uploaded the unprocessed versions of the original NASA scans into Flickr albums organized by mission.

We've selected a few of our favorites from each mission, but it's worth checking out the entire collection on Flickr.

Ben Carson Calls on IRS to Terminate CAIR's Tax-Exempt Status

The Clarion Project - 

Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson said CAIR 'brazenly violated' IRS rules, noting it is 'not the first time that CAIR has disrespected U.S. laws.' 

Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is calling on the Internal Revenue Service to revoke the tax-exempt status of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in response to CAIR's demand that he end his campaign and due to its status as an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial.

Carson is the second presidential candidate to call on the IRS to strip the tax-exempt status of CAIR. In June, the Clarion Project broke the story that Republican presidential candidate and former New York Governor George Pataki said that CAIR's status should be revoked. Pataki called for a general policy of removing the tax-exempt statuses of any organization that promotes terrorist organizations.
