Conservative media commentator Glenn Beck led a national strategy session to kill the Common Core State Standards on Tuesday night, using a two-hour simulcast into movie theaters across the country as a way to embolden critics of the standards and recruit foot soldiers to the cause.
"This one is being won," Beck said from a soundstage in Texas, his image broadcast to audience members who paid $20 a ticket. "It's being won and these are your allies in the fight. You've felt alone, but we have lots of allies."
You will very likely be reunited with some family members, old friends, and other people you have known along life's way. People you may not have seen in a long time.
Well, are you ready now to make your reservation for this "paid in full" best trip ever?
If so, the following is all you have to do to have your place reserved: Each person wanting to make the trip must make their own reservation, no one else can do it for you.
From reading the international and national news you would probably never have known that last Thursday and Friday alone, over 700 people were killed in Syria at the hands of jihadists and pro-Assad forces. Muslim on Muslim, Arab on Arab, human on human, whatever you like to think of it as - Western media is doing an awful job of reporting these abhorrent incidences - and I think I know why.

A Sudanese woman who was sentenced to death in Sudan for refusing to recant her Christian faith arrived Thursday in Italy en route to the United States along with her family, including an infant born in prison.
Italian Premier Matteo Renzi welcomed Meriam Ibrahim at Rome's Ciampino airport, calling it "a day of celebration."
Ibrahim and her family are expected to spend a few days in Rome before heading to the United States, where her Sudan-born husband has citizenship. The Vatican confirmed that Ibrahim will meet with the pope, but declined to offer further details.
"Israel is a tiny island of civilization in a vast sea of barbarism called the Middle East. It respects women's rights, education, the value of hard work, science, medicine. I mean, even the president isn't above the law. It's got a great court system. It's us. It's western civilization."
"Time flies and it does not return. Years pass and we never get them back. It's the one thing that can never be restored," wrote Pastor Colin Smith in a recent post at The Gospel Coalition. "Yet, God promises the impossible: 'I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten' (Joel 2:25)."
So many feel that much of their lives have been wasted. Is there hope that a promise originally made to the people of Israel can be applied to us today? Yes, says Pastor Smith. Our fruitless, painful, selfish, loveless, rebellious, mis-directed, and Christ-less years can be restored in three ways:
Why are so many plagues hitting the United States all of a sudden? Yes, one can always point out bad stuff that is happening somewhere in the country, but right now we are facing a nightmarish combination of crippling drought, devastating wildfires, disastrous viruses, dying crops and superbugs that scientists don't know how to kill. And as you will see, we even have a plague of flies down in Mississippi. So what in the world is going on? Is this just a case of bad luck, or is something else happening? At the conclusion of this article, please feel free to tell me what you think. The following are ten plagues that are hitting America right now...
Lately, I have found myself in very good company. Several other prophecy students and watchmen, along with yours truly have formed a little "coalition for comfort." If you do not have a support group, find one. If you study Bible prophecy and find yourself longing for the Lord to call you to Heaven to be with Him, and those around you are not feeling it...get into a group of like-minded believers.
I cannot tell you how vital it is that believers in Jesus need to be banded and bonded together in these end times. How easy it is for Satan to get into our minds and try to discourage us and deter us from our witnessing and studying as the time nears for that wretched serpent to meet his final demise. So there can be power in numbers—a group who loves the Lord is a mighty fortress (albeit even a small one). Form a fortress people.
Michael Brown cites recent developments pointing to 'gay'-like acceptance
Gay activists constantly tell us that there’s no such thing as a slippery moral slope and that the acceptance of homosexuality will not lead to the acceptance of other sexual practices, such as incest. The facts prove otherwise, and it is clear that we are rapidly sliding down the very slope whose existence they deny.
As I continually chart our society’s moral free fall, the term that best describes our current condition is sexual anarchy, where men can have sex with men just as well with women, where sex outside of wedlock is just as acceptable as sex within wedlock, where marriage doesn’t necessarily mean monogamy and where longstanding social taboos are cast off.
