“What he apparently meant is that not all Christians are terrorists and not all Muslims are terrorists—a fact evident to all—yet his words also seemed to suggest that no specifically Islamic form of terrorism exists in the world, an assertion that stands in stark contradiction to established fact.”
Indeed. Pope Francis is not only disastrously wrongheaded about an obvious fact that is reinforced by every day’s headlines, but he is also deceiving and misleading his people about a matter of utmost importance, and keeping them ignorant and complacent about a growing and advancing threat.
“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)

“Pope Francis: ‘Muslim Terrorism Does Not Exist,’” by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, February 17, 2017:
In an impassioned address Friday, Pope Francis denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, while simultaneously asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.”
“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.
What he apparently meant is that not all Christians are terrorists and not all Muslims are terrorists—a fact evident to all—yet his words also seemed to suggest that no specifically Islamic form of terrorism exists in the world, an assertion that stands in stark contradiction to established fact.
“No people is criminal or drug-trafficking or violent,” Francis said, while also suggesting—as he has on other occasions—that terrorism is primarily a result of economic inequalities rather than religious beliefs. “The poor and the poorer peoples are accused of violence yet, without equal opportunities, the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and will eventually explode.”
The Pope also reiterated his conviction that all religions promote peace and that the danger of violent radicalization exists equally in all religions.
“There are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and religions—and with intolerant generalizations they become stronger because they feed on hate and xenophobia,” he said.
While denying the existence of Islamic terrorism, Francis also seemed to condemn the denial of global warming, asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.”
“A very solid scientific consensus indicates that we are presently witnessing a disturbing warming of the climatic system,” he said.
We know “what happens when we deny science and disregard the voice of Nature,” the Pope said. “Let us not fall into denial. Time is running out. Let us act. I ask you again—all of you, people of all backgrounds including native people, pastors, political leaders—to defend Creation.”
While acknowledging that science is not “the only form of knowledge,” and that “science is not necessarily ‘neutral’” and often “conceals ideological views or economic interests,” he still insisted that people of good will should not oppose “scientific consensus” regarding global warming.
Leftist media like the liberal Guardian in the U.K. immediately politicized the speech, predictably claiming that the Pope was backing “anti-Trump protests,” despite the fact that the Pope himself denied such a claim, explicitly declaring that “I am not speaking of anyone in particular.”
“I am not speaking of anyone in particular, I am speaking of a social and political process that flourishes in many parts of the world and poses a grave danger for humanity,” he said.
Moreover, although the Guardian claimed that the Pope was “condemning populism,” in point of fact, he was speaking to populist movements and praised their commitment to democracy.
“The direction taken beyond this historic turning-point,” Francis said, “will depend on people’s involvement and participation and, largely, on yourselves, the popular movements.”
Nevertheless, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, said Monday that the Holy See is concerned over growing populist and nationalist movements, both in Europe and in the United States.
In an interview for the Italian evening news on the state-owned RAI network, the Cardinal was asked whether the Vatican is worried about what the interviewer called “the spread of nationalism and populism not only in Europe but also in the United States with Donald Trump.”
“I think so, I think so,” Parolin said. “Certainly these closings are not a good sign,” since many of them “are born of fear, which is not a good counselor.”…

They are a challenge for growth.”
Merkel: Europe must take in more Muslim migrants, Islam “is not the cause of terrorism”

“Angela Merkel says Europe must take MORE refugees and Islam ‘isn’t source of terror,'” by Jeremy Culley, Daily Star, February 18, 2017:
GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel has launched a staunch defense of her refugee policy.
The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take displaced people from Syria and Iraq.
She also said Islam “is not the cause of terrorism” and that combating extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries.
In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin’s Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East.
Mrs Merkel has come under fire for taking in up to one million refugees amid security concerns and a string of migrant sex attacks across Germany.
After the Berlin lorry attack at a Christmas market in December, ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage said events such as that will be “Merkel’s legacy”.

UK: Tory MP says views of some conservative Anglicans “differ little from ISIL”
"A former vice-chair of the Conservative party has compared some conservative Christians to the militant jihadist group ISIS in an article calling on the Church of England to ‘fully embrace the 21st century’.
Michael Fabricant, MP for Lichfield, told the Church ‘to take a tough line on its less progressive elements’ as he suggested it is time for the worldwide Anglican Communion to split.
‘Simply opting for more of the same for the sake of unity amongst a diverse Communion – some of whose views differ little from ISIL – is a choice of quantity over quality,’ he wrote in the Telegraph.
‘Perhaps the Church should take a tough line on its less progressive elements: get with the times or get out."


Ivanka Trump Tops Amazon Sales Charts Amid Nordstrom’s Ban

 Trump sales skyrocket online after 
Nordstrom’s empties shelves
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Ivanka Trump’s clothing line is rocketing to the top of Amazon sales charts, negating the effect of Nordstrom’s and other retailers pulling her products from store shelves.
The Ivanka Trump Eau de Parfum Spray For Women is the #1 fragrance for women:

The Ivanka Trump Women’s Kayden4 Dress Pump reached #3 in women’s pumps:

And the Ivanka Trump Women’s Tummy Control Midi Skirt is #5 in women’s Wear to Work clothing:

Overall, Ivanka Trump products typically dominate the top 20 of their appropriate categories on Amazon, which highlights the lack of influence brick-and-mortar stores wield in the political arena.
On Friday, Burlington announced it was yanking all of Ivanka’s products it sells on-line.

The retailer did not publicly comment on the matter, and it’s likely, although unconfirmed, that Burlington was phasing out Trump products at its physical stores.
Earlier in the month Nordstrom’s announced it was severing ties with Ivanka Trump due to “poor sales,” but an industry expert said that was likely a complete lie to cover up the political agenda behind the move.
“This is a classic example of a retailer making a decision based on their fear of standing up to political pressure – even on a limited scale,” the expert told Breitbart on the condition of anonymity.  “It was clear from their actions since last fall that Nordstrom would prefer to sell out to loud liberal groups who weren’t even regular Nordstrom consumers, just to avoid controversy.”
“…Insiders know how stores can easily play games with placement of merchandise and other ways to lower numbers, and its very possible Nordstrom’s did that here to cover themselves.”
An internal memo given to Nordstrom’s employees suggests that was the case:
Last Friday an executive order was signed by the President of the United States related to immigration. This subject is one we’re watching closely — our family’s heritage, the company’s roots, and the diverse employees and customers we serve are top of mind. When John W. Nordstrom came to the U.S. as an immigrant, he was given opportunities that allowed him to find a more prosperous and happy life. In so many ways, our humble beginnings and the work ethic and gratitude that goes with it helped shape the culture of our company to this day.
Similarly, Sears and K-Mart also dropped Trump-related products from their online stores.

 The new scanning technique shows the baby at 20 weeks in incredible detail.
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:
Expectant parents can now see their child in the womb in incredible detail thanks to a technological breakthrough.
While ultrasound has been commonplace in maternity clinics since the 1980s, a new MRI scan captures footage of the unborn child in clear, high-quality imaging.
The technique has come to the public’s attention after a 24 second video of a 20 week old unborn baby seen kicking, swallowing and pulling on the umbilical cord, went viral.

Early treatment

According to The Telegraph, the new £10 million technique could lead to complications being spotted earlier, and potentially treated before the baby is born.
Previously, if a baby was highly active during a scan, the images would be unusable. The new imaging uses computer algorithms to compensate for small foetal movements.

This means that clear imaging can be created, without the mother returning for another scan.
The team behind the new technology, iFIND, hope that it will soon be rolled out to maternity clinics across the world.

Sanctity of life

The video, which shows the fully-formed the baby in such detail, is likely to reignite debate about lowering the current abortion limit of 24 weeks.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has previously supported cutting the limit to 12 weeks.
In 2012, he said that everyone has their view on when human life begins and that in his own opinion, “12 weeks is the right point for it”.
He added that in 2008 he voted for the abortion limit to be halved from 24 to 12 weeks.
 When does human life begin?

When does human life begin?

When does human life begin? It is a fundamental and decisive question because your answer reveals your understanding of the nature and status of the human embryo. It also shapes your stance on the big bioethical issues of the day such as abortion, cloning and embryonic stem cell research. There are many voices sowing confusion, but the Bible is unmistakably clear that human life begins at conception. In this booklet, John Ling provides a wide-ranging explanation of biblical truth, the historical Christian perspective and evidence from modern science to support this position.

By Shirley Edwards

February 18, 2017
[These are my views as a woman living in England, on how the culture and spirit of my country has changed over 50 years. Why the country does not feel protected or strong any more, how it has lost, and is losing it values and decency, and how we are daily losing our free speech.]
“Those who cry the loudest are not always the ones who are hurt the most” - Aesop
Just for once, I didn’t have to be personally present to witness or understand the anger at the Women’s anti-Trump march recently held in London. I have suffered with frustration and anger, I have seen the damage it can cause, and I also recognise it in others. It is an ugly spirit. It is usually loud, indignant and demanding; sometimes it hides behind a quiet demeanour, victim hood, tears, or a painted smile. There is a lot of it about.
However, with barely one foot through the front door of The White House, it still came as a bit of a surprise that an exaggerated 100,000 angry women’s voices would be on him like a ton of bricks from this side of the Atlantic, and that the event would be heavily covered through all of our mainstream media. The new president of the United States, is suddenly not only responsible for offending the minority of voters in the USA, and creating world division; but he is now apparently responsible for every woman’s anguish here in the UK and across the world as well. I hope he has broad shoulders.
Jumping on the bandwagon of what some call group solidarity for all those people who think they are marginalized or feel deeply offended by laws being implemented on the other side of the Atlantic; there were plenty of others across the nation, from the comfort of their own home, who were being empowered by joining in with the criticism, the hatred, and the disbelief directed towards the new president of the United States who they consider to be against women and also very racist towards immigrants. I heard it in the workplace, in shops, at friend’s homes, and witnessed the sudden outage of indignation verbalizing itself at every conceivable moment. It was quite astonishing to hear that once more, especially after the Brexit result, and to see it displayed amidst the quiet acceptance and respect that many others felt towards the majority of voters in the USA.
Yet my observations came not only from watching the display of female anguish marching through the streets of London, believing they spoke for the nation, but from asking why this very large group of protestors, if they were concerned about women, were not directing their energy against the real perpetrators of abuse in our society today? There are plenty of them about. What has Donald Trump had to do with it?
Sometimes, it’s not those women who cry loudest who are the ones who are most hurt…….They are usually the ones who are most wrong.
Was Donald Trump acting as a catalyst for something else; an unhealed anguish deeply forgotten and buried? Why haven’t we witnessed such hatred for male leaders; home and abroad before?
Why did this anger turn itself against one man, without looking at its own guilt, and the wrong compromises it has already made with evil within its own home?
Silent Witness - The Missing Women
If demonstrators were upset about the unfair way that women are treated, I wondered why they were not around when just one British woman bought out a private prosecution against 2 male doctors who were discovered carrying out abortions on unborn baby girls in the UK, based purely on their gender. With an estimated 100,000,000 missing women based solely on the practice of gendercide across the world, it should surely be something worth speaking out against.
What a wonderful platform some of those speakers in that demonstration could have had to highlight that abuse in our own country. [Link]
Silent Witness - The Invisible Mother
I wondered if 100,000 demonstrators will march or speak out on the removal of the name ‘mothers’ which is now being called for by the BMA, (The British Medical Association), who have issued official internal guidelines to all of its members to implement and refer to a new mother as a ‘pregnant person’, thus removing the unique gift, joy and privilege of being called a mother; in order to not offend others.
The guidelines also promote the new title of Mx which can be used instead of Miss, Ms, Mrs or Mr. It will not be a Happy Mx Day when that suggestion finally takes a hold.
The road to genderless, non descript, non identifiable ‘nobodies’ is upon us. Will we question or blindly comply with these instructions?
You can read A Guide to Effective Communication, Inclusive Language in the Workplace issued by The British Medical Association.
Silent Witness - The Invisible Child
I wondered why 100,000 demonstrators have not vocally objected in the streets to the sexualizing of children through the promotion of soft porn through music videos, where a little girls ambition in life has now become demoted to using the power of her assets to become a sex symbol like Rhianna, Beyonce or Britney and little boy’s are trained early to see girls as pure objects for their desire?
Passing their antics off as powerful and liberating is an insult to women, but more alarmingly it is feeding a more sinister and abusive agenda to make sex and provocative behaviour in children, especially little girls, much more acceptable.
It was interesting to see some of the more provocative female celebrities being the ones to shout the loudest in some of the organized marches across the world.
Silent Witness - Human Chattel
However, most of all I have wondered why those 100,000 demonstrators have not focused their energy into something which would be helpful and expose the evil of human trafficking in the UK, the rising number of rapes across Europe, child slavery, child brides, forced marriage, honour based violence, and FGM, (female genital mutilation) which is highlighted as a cultural problem and where it is estimated that the number of girls and women who have undergone FGM in the UK is estimated to vary from anything from 66,000 to 280,000 with between 7,000 to 24,000 girls under 17 years of age at risk?
The slogan currently being used to highlight FGM is No Voice – No Choice.
As the Women’s anti-Trump movement in the UK now takes a stance against his restrictions on immigration and travel to the USA, with demonstrations up and down the country in many of the major cities, I refer to two of the many signs that I have witnessed in these rallies which reads:
‘Kindness is Everything’
‘Your cannot unify with Hate’
Promoting humanism in a country which is already divided, not through the efforts of Donald Trump, but by another system which has purposefully overcrowded one culture with another culture, people are already aware that their kindness has been mis-used.
Apart from genuine immigrants and refugees who have integrated over many years into the UK, who are friends to the UK, and consider themselves British; unfortunately there are many legal and illegal immigrants who are not so friendly now living within our society.
Many places in Europe have fallen backwards and become unrecognisable; there are many places where people, especially women, are very afraid to visit. There is no kindness or unity there.
An area known as Tower Hamlets is known to be one of the most dangerous places for women and girls in the east end of London.
Tower Hamlets is also known as one of the ‘no-go’ areas which are reportedly existing throughout the United Kingdom where people do not feel safe or protected anymore.
In an article by Soeren Khan from the Gatestone Institute in relation to European ‘no-go’ zones, fact or fiction; here are some of the comments from people who speak out against some of the areas which now populate the British Isles.
The article also speaks about how many people are desperately leaving some areas in which they feel that the British law, culture and values are being dominantly displaced by cultures which want to police themselves and others, rather than follow the law of the land. [Link]
"There are some communities born under other skies who will not involve the police at all... there are communities from other cultures who would prefer to police themselves." — Sir Tom Winsor, chief inspector of the police forces in England and Wales.
"We are sleepwalking our way to segregation. We are becoming strangers to each other and leaving communities to be marooned outside the mainstream." — Trevor Phillips, former chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality.
"One of the results of [multiculturalism] has been to further alienate the young from the nation in which they were growing up and also to turn already separate communities into 'no-go' areas where adherence to this ideology [of Islamic extremism] has become a mark of acceptability.” Michael Nazir-Ali, former Bishop of Rochester.
"There are things that I see when I'm driving around Birmingham that shouldn't be happening. I only drive into these areas, never actually walk into these areas, I just wouldn't. Just in case I did do something that...because of their culture or their religion it was a threat or it was an insult or something."
— Resident of Birmingham.
Who will fill the Void?
The protestors in the Women’s anti-Trump march I fear are being used in varying ways. An out-of-control reaction, an anger, by the protesters is creating an irrational and biased attack upon a president who may be initially daring to prioritize the safety of his own fellow citizens first, and it is also acting as a distraction against some of the real issues that we should all be talking about and not be shouted down upon in our own country. It is not racist to highlight such problems.
The real anguish which some women feel is that they do not feel safe, or protected in society. They feel badly let down by men, even the good ones. It was all very well to march in large numbers through a relatively safe street in London. It is not so nice to walk alone in places of society where no one cares for you.
 When we no longer identify or respect the specific and special roles that each of the sexes possess, society becomes demoralized so low that it loses all respect for itself and each other, and becomes very weak. It does not recognise genuine strength, love or grace.

You can sense and see the growing weakness and lack of character and identity all around. Who is it that is orchestrating the demise of mankind and why do we have to be considered unkind to object to it?
Will men and women unite together and value their role in society, protect their children and stand up to evil in a rational way without falling prey to the political correctness and humanism which is destroying people?
Out of control anger, like over the top kindness, can kill people. The women’s anti-trump demonstration was a weak attempt at the countries collective failure to show true strength and kindness in the correct proportion when it should have done a long long time ago. Leaders have let us down.
Is it to late to turn back to a dignity now lost….?

My Response to Pastor Chuck Baldwin [Link]
I have had the good fortune to see my articles in over the years. I say this because being one of the "deplorables" in America today limits our access to many journalistic opportunities, and yet like many of the faithful of publisher Paul Walter, we wouldn't have it any other way.
As such, many of you who've been following Pastor Chuck Baldwin's philosophical meanderings through the years might have caught a slight dissonance in his recent column, "Is Netanyahu Finished", as if something was out of sync.
I am using this opportunity to rebut his points, one by one. I look forward to your heartfelt responses to my article. Let me say from the outset: this is a no-holds-barred rebuttal to his opining of Netanyahu, Israel, Jews, and Christians. We all know that if you want to get people riled up, just talk about Israel, Jews, and Christian attitudes to the above and you'll open the Pandora's Box.
PB (Pastor Baldwin): "Bibi is one of the most corrupt political leaders on the planet"
RS (Rabbi Shifren): Perhaps it is so, but being in the middle east, surrounded by those who want your demise, is not an easy situation for any leader. Here is a country where literally nothing is normal (I may seem to be leaning here toward Pastor Baldwin, but for different reasons). Fully 50% doesn't want to, or rebels at, anything resembling traditional Judaism. You have an active, aggressive Gay/Lesbian population eating away at the thousands of years of Biblical prophecy and Divine intervention. And you also have open communists with an axe to grind in the spirit of Marx, Trotsky, and Alinsky.
Then there are Hellenists, who if they had no Israeli passport, would resemble anybody windsurfing at Waikiki or eating sushi in Beverly Hills, and Yeshiva students who never see the light of the sun, squinting at obtuse tractates of Talmudic law under the cover of dimly lit florescent bulbs. Last but not least, there is an active, healthy underground fueled by pimps, prostitutes, and a mafia which would make Meir Lansky blush. So yes, Pastor Baldwin is right about the insanity of Israel....but to be its LEADER, well now, that takes an acute level of ability that the Democratic Party of Waters, Ellison, and Pelosi could hardly dream of.
And he's right: Bibi is the darling of many Christian groups who want their own fantasy relationship with the people of the Book, the progeny of the Holocaust. What many don't realize is that Bibi was for many years ensconced in Manhattan during his position in the UN, gleaning from the rich and powerful, all eager to get in his good graces, being close to a real Israeli war hero, regardless of issues of character or philosophy.
Bibi cleverly marshalled his well-honed English fluency, good looks and Machiavellian political moxie to ingratiate himself into the "salon" milieu, managing to be everything to everybody seeking to find an excuse for being pro-Jew/Israeli. Bibi is so well spoken that when you hear him, you believe every word he says.
Pastor Baldwin doesn't illuminate why Bibi is going down, and I tend to think that even hardened Israelis have occasionally had it with his hegemony. But the good pastor doesn't get: many Israeli politicos are corrupt. It is endemic, just as the 25% of the underground economy who is fleeing the tax man.
How legitimate could one be to sit in a coalition with Palestinian Arabs enumerating their hatred for the Jewish state from the dais of the Knesset (parliament), encouraging and abetting intifadas and blood-letting. Really, this is one aspect that the media has left unturned: the special ability to reconcile with a perpetual terrorist sword drawn against its very survival, giving the pretense that this is true "democracy.” So yes, nobody normal, least of all the coalition factions of orthodox rabbis whiling away the tedious speeches of the Arabs, the Israeli Left, and otherwise crass corrupt philistines, could imagine the horror of governing such a witch's brew. Truly, Bibi has his hands full just keeping Israel alive and safe.
PB: "He is pressuring Donald Trump to ratchet up a war against Iran" to give cover and deflect from his misdeeds...
RS: Here the good pastor shows a complete lack of understanding of the Israeli mind-set. Note well: Israel doesn't need America, and is fully capable of neutralizing the Iranian threat. Nonetheless, a joint coalition would certainly be favorable and elevate the raison de guerre of Israel in her continuous war to find favor in the eyes of the Gentiles. Yet when the boom is ultimately lowered, Israel will stand alone, just as it did at Entebbe and the Iraqi nuclear facility. They know it, American insiders know it--everyone but Pastor Baldwin knows it.
PB: "There is one common denominator that links the mainstream media with the so-called conservative media: infatuation with the modern state of Israel" (wonder what he means here by "modern"...would these pundits have preferred the Israel of King David? I rather doubt it…)
RS: I detest knee-jerk thinkers and groups, Jewish or Gentile. I abhor "Black Lives Matter" because I know who these punks are. In the same way, I detest playing the Holocaust card. It's so easy to do, and who wants to be labeled in the same Jew-baiting ranks with Goebbels, Streicher, Eichmann....the entire Jewish leadership plays this card to a tee. Pathetic and stifling of any discussion. Pat Buchanan and Mel Gibson will tell you volumes about going against the Israeli/Jewish bulwark.
PB: "He is mobilizing accelerated (illegal) settlements on private land owned by Palestinians"
RS: Is this man a pastor, a man of god? What religion is he representing? This is perhaps his most puzzling statement to date. Does Pastor Baldwin believe in God? Which God? Because if it's the God of the Old Testament, and the God of Heaven and Earth, then there is only ONE God...and that same God stated: "The Land of Israel will be an eternal inheritance to your seed". "Those that bless you will be blessed, those that curse you will be cursed." Genesis 12:1-3.
The problem the pastor has is that his rhetoric and ideology have trumped his divine calling. I know of not ONE Christian (who truly is a Christian, devoid of anti-Semitic leanings), who does not stand behind this doctrine and other pronouncements in Exodus, giving the Land of Kanaan (Israel) exclusively to the seed of Abraham (see appropriate passages regarding the banishing of Ishmael and his claims).
Therefore, his mention of Palestinian "rights" is curious, suspiciously incongruent with the foundation of Christian theology. Yet, it is difficult to stand up to the nay-sayers in today's Christian church. Many a man of integrity and knowledge of scripture has given in to the leftists and Palestinian inciters' relentless assault against traditional belief (It was none other than Arafat that confided that the "Palestinian" cause was bogus, used only as a means to weaken and destroy Israel).
Of course, there have always been malevolent purveyors of Jew-baiting in the history of Christianity. Yet, when candid, these erudite haters will quote you chapter and verse about the exclusivity of the Abrahamic covenant with God, having zero mention of "Palestinian rights.” So, what then must we conclude from Pastor Baldwin's strange rhetoric? It doesn't have to be complicated: somewhere, somehow, a Jew stood before him and obstructed his pathway. This is not unique.
PB: "Neither does it hurt that Trump's son-in-law is a MAJOR financial backer of the (illegal) settlements"
RS: As Reagan would say, "There you go again!" But hey, somebody needs to come up with the green to finance that which the Israeli government has been doing: putting facts on the ground that will never be erased. If God is real (is he, really good Pastor?), and the scriptures are not fake, then this land is part of the biblical Land of Israel, whether we (our congregations/clerics) approve of it, or not. God gave it to Israel, and a lot more than they have today belonged only to them.
PB: "Billionaire Sheldon Adelson is starting to back away from Bibi"
RS: Here's a man who understands when he's throwing good money after bad....
PB: "Many Christians have accused me of heresy" for what I said about Bibi
RS: I won't. You have accurately described's just that you haven't seen the big picture. Or that you just have lost your ability to withstand pressure from apostates within your church, or otherwise leftist/anti-Semitic agitators who you might have been courting or perhaps you are the leader in this courting since in one article you stated that the Jews of Israel are not the Jews of the Bible. Well then, PB, who are they? Because many can trace their ancestry back to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
PB: "For many professing Christians, the modern state of Israel is every bit as important as Jesus Christ himself and their own personal salvation.
RS: This is probably your only righteous statement. The State of Israel is every bit as important as Jesus Christ because Israel is the Wife of God, and the Church states they are the Bride of Christ. The Abrahamic Covenant is unconditional and includes the land, and God does not lie, and neither does he go back on his promises.
[Editor's Note: See Bibi Netanyahu and President Trump at a press meeting in DC on 2-15-17]

PB: "Netanyahu is not only a crook, a globalist, and murderer, he is also a Talmudist"
RS: A murderer, really? I wasn't aware, whom did he murder? Your argument has no feet. Not once in your invective have you called to task the unrelenting war of Arab terror against Jews. You've saved your arrows for those evil "Talmudists" like Bibi, who actually teaches a Bible class every week.
But how hysterical are you? Bibi a Talmudist? Even Woody Allen would laugh you off your lectern... Bibi is a politician and puts on a yarmulke when he goes to a Concentration Camp, or a funeral. Do you know his heart? You cannot claim you do.
PB: "If you think the Koran is bad, try reading the Talmud."
RS: Yes, you've finally come to your senses: the Koran is definitely bad! Regarding the Talmud, what about that ever-problematic passage about "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth?" Do you know what that means? Of course not, you know nothing of the Talmud except to cherry-pick problematic statements of which you have no clue. Actually, the passage in question refers to monetary damages due to the aggrieved, and not in removing the plaintiff’s eye. So, there you have it, now you can certainly rest. The remainder is a life's work and toil about what was given over on Sinai, and what was transmitted orally, known as the Oral Law (as opposed to the Bible, or Written Law). Few have the time, patience, and determination to dive into the minutia and profound manner of the arguments given least of all.
 PB: "Iran is being painted as the next big, bad wolf"

RS: For such a smart guy, how could you be so wrong?! The problem you're facing? You've never lived in Iran as a Christian, or anywhere else as a Christian in the Middle East....good luck. Yes, not one American boy should be sacrificed to shut these maniacs down. So, when Israeli jets take off one night during Ramadan, remember I told you so....
PB: "Sanctions against Iran are a violation of the 2015 treaty"
RS: Are you kidding me?! A treaty with Iran, you say? Pastor, this is delusional. Find someone in your congregation that can teach you about Iran....let me elucidate for you a cardinal principle: the Saudis hate Iran, so they're going to be good news for us. Period. The way of the world.

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Representative Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) introduced their ObamaCare Replacement Act (ORA) on Wednesday. It would simultaneously repeal nearly all of ObamaCare’s most onerous demands and mandates while opening up the health-insurance market to individuals to purchase, or not to purchase, coverage. The bill, S.222, might more appropriately be named the “Health Insurance Freedom to Purchase Act,” putting the decision to buy, or not to buy, coverage back in the hands of individual citizens and taking it out of the hands of the federal government.
Senator Paul said, “This is a big, big day for conservative Republicans. We owe this to the conservatives around the country who elected us to repeal, to completely repeal, ObamaCare. But I think if you’re going to repeal something, you should replace it.”
Whether that is so is open to debate. Some would say it would be better just to repeal ObamaCare and let the free market sort things out afterwards. Nevertheless, the ORA puts the decision to purchase health insurance coverage back in the hands of the people paying for it, allowing them the freedom not to purchase coverage if they don’t want to. The ObamaCare mandate requiring people to either purchase health insurance or pay a penalty would disappear. It would allow those citizens choosing to buy health coverage to choose whatever plan they want. Insurance companies will be allowed to offer coverages across state lines, and expand their offerings without federal interference or demands that certain expenses be covered even when unwarranted or unnecessary.
Rather than punishing those who decided under ObamaCare not to buy coverage with IRS penalties, ORA offers incentives instead. Individuals may set up their own Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) to pay for future medical and health expenses. Any amounts may be added to those accounts, and those funds may be invested without incurring taxes on any earnings. And a tax credit of up to $5,000 per person putting away funds into an HSA is allowed. Those without insurance through their employer but wanting to buy coverage will be able to join voluntary associations for the sole purpose of buying insurance, taking advantage of better coverage at lower rates.

Funds invested in HSAs may be used to buy health insurance, pay for prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs along with dietary supplements, and pay for physical exercise regimens offered by personal trainers and workout centers and facilities. And, of course, those funds may be used to cover any deductibles in the coverages they decide to purchase. HSA funds may also be used by those already covered under the VA, Medicare, Tricare, IHS (Indian Health Service), or healthcare sharing ministries.
In other words, HSAs under the new law will be tax-deferred savings accounts, with tax credits added in as a bonus to encourage people to set them up.
Included in the ORA are provisions allowing states more freedom to modify Medicaid coverages without federal government interference. And it provides a two-year "window" open-enrollment period under which individuals with pre-existing conditions can purchase coverage.
The ORA is a “consensus” bill combining the elements of at least four plans being offered to replace ObamaCare. While there are still some issues to be ironed out, especially regarding Medicaid and the size of the tax credit, the bill in final form could arrive on President Trump’s desk by the end of March.
The ORA is also a political move by the House Freedom Caucus, which supports it unanimously. The 40-member caucus is using this as a lever to move ObamaCare’s repeal along more rapidly. That caucus voted on Monday night to repeal the bill passed by both houses in 2015 undoing ObamaCare, putting in its place the ORA.
If it becomes law, the ORA will put responsibility for one’s health care back where it belongs: the taxpayers who are making the decisions on how they want to spend the money they earn. That freedom, under the ORA, would include the freedom not to buy health insurance if one decides not to. That is the paradigm shift toward freedom and away from government mandates contained in the bill offered by Senator Paul and Representative Sanford.

Reality will repeal Obamacare even if the GOP won’t. Humana becomes the first major insurer to exit Obamacare as insurance company mergers fail. Trump & his new Health Secretary Tom Price have issued orders to try and ease some of the pain for people and companies but Obamacare will never be affordable for insurers or patients. “Too Big TO Fail” insurance companies plus Obamacare will be just as disastrous for health care (currently 1/5 of the economy) as “Too Big To Fail” banks plus Glass-Steagall repeal was disastrous for homeownership. David Knight looks at the tweaks that were just done to Obamacare as well as the big picture of what needs to happen.
