Thursday, August 28th, 2014, will go down as one of those rare moments when a President of the United States admitted publicly that the United States didn't know how to deal with a major foreign policy crisis. When President Obama declared, "we don't have a strategy yet" to confront ISIS, he was merely admitting what his Administration's actions, or lack thereof, had made obvious.
Every President has to deal with a chaotic world that often seems focused on wrecking havoc on America's self-interest. Presidents fail at foreign policy objectives more frequently than they succeed. Yet rarely have we seen a President so openly struggle with a declaration of American purpose and goals.
ISIS is approaching Baghdad. The consequences are unspeakable should they take the city. Megyn Kelly interviews an Episcopalian pastor Tuesday night.
Andrew is a revered figure among Christians in Iraq. He is the vicar of St. George's Church in Baghdad. Because he is a Christian pastor who preaches a very different message than the terror group, he automatically has a target on his back.
Andrew told Kelly that nearly all Christians in the area have family members who have been "slaughtered" by Islamic State terrorists. He said he is not afraid, but he worries about what will happen to his people at the hands of the extremists.
Scientists don't know when California's next great earthquake will strike, but they do know just about everything else about it, and the potential ramifications are terrifying: impotent rescue services, widespread fires, and no fresh water for months.
And yet California officials haven't done much to prepare for such an immense disaster, said Lucy Jones, a seismologist at the U.S. Geological Service, at The Atlantic's CityLab 2014 summit in Los Angeles.
Nope, the prosperity preachers are a lot different than the preacher at High Point First Presbyterian Church in 1957. He was humble, not pompous; and the message was always Bible-based according to my parents.
My, how things have changed. We don't hear too many churches today sermonizing about God's coming wrath at mankind, and that it appears to be right around the corner. Certain things have to happen first, like Israel being surrounded by enemies that want to annihilate the Jewish population, now at nearly 9,000,000. Is that happening? And then of course, Israel would have had to be a country again in order to be surrounded. Has that happened? Then the world is supposed to turn against Israel, including the West. Is that happening? Another one of the prophetic predictions stated that there would be a great apostasy, or falling away from the teachings of God. Is that happening?
Rumored attorney general replacement Tom Perez would be an Eric Holder clone — or worse.
President Obama is considering nominating his far-left labor secretary to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, according to media reports.
Illegal alien enabler Thomas Perez would not be an improvement over Holder, the scandal-plagued left-wing attorney general who has taken the Department of Justice to new lows of corruption and lawlessness. Perez, who previously ran the DoJ's civil rights branch, would likely be a Holder clone or worse.
The World Council of Churches (WCC) is holding its annual "World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel" (WWPPI) this week, calling on Israel to release jailed terrorists - despite the severity of their crimes and the abundance of terrorists immediately returning to terror.
Jan and Anita are interviewed by host Jonathan Bernis both weeks. Anita shares her uplifting story, in part, and Jan talks about both Germany and America letting government become their god.

The new year that began last week on Rosh Hashanah (year 5775 by Jewish reckoning) is a biblically-mandated shmita year in which all farmland is to lie fallow.
While the weekly Shabbat (Sabbath) is a day of rest for man, the shmita is to be a year of rest for the land every seventh year. It is commanded in Exodus 23:10–11, which reads:
You may plant your land for six years and gather its crops. But during the seventh year, you must leave it alone and withdraw from it. The needy among you will then be able to eat just as you do, and whatever is left over can be eaten by wild animals. This also applies to your vineyard and your olive grove.
It is estimated that some 5,000 Israeli farmers obey the above commandment, and the state sets aside around USD $28.5 million to support them during a year without crops to sell.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed on Tuesday that a patient being treated at a Dallas hospital has tested positive for Ebola, the first case diagnosed in the United States.

An author and political activist says the Democratic Party is clearly controlled by far left-wing radicals who want to create a one-party state.
Recently The Washington Free Beacon obtained some unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and 1960s-era left-wing radical Saul Alinsky. The letters revealed a close relationship between Clinton and Alinsky, who wrote Rules for Radicals, a controversial guide to the ends-justifies-means approach to power and wealth redistribution through community activism.
