Christianity is suffering in Europe - is America next?

Christianity is suffering in Europe – is America next?

Editors Note: This week Helena Nunn brings a great round up of stories on a variety of issues. The look at Christianity numbers in the world is very telling. People are embracing Christ all over the world- except Europe! The secularization, anti-Christian hostility, loss of moral certainty and Islamic invasion has driven Christianity to dangerously low levels in Europe. The Catholic Church in Europe is especially hard hit and some have stated that Christianity in the UK is one generation away from extinction. Poland is actually considering paying people to have babies, which will help re-grow Christianity. The embrace of contraception and abortion by so many (under the influence of population control enthusiasts) has devastated Christianity. It is time for Catholic to stop using Contraception in America (a mortal sin by the way) to help prevent the extinction of Catholicism in America.

Holy Week look at Christianity by-the-numbers

“As Holy Week begins for Christians around the world, some intriguing info on the faith has been released by Pew Research Ctr. Christians remained the largest religious group in the world in 2015, making up nearly a third (31%) of Earth’s 7.3 billion people, according to a new Pew Research Ctr demographic analysis. But the report also shows that the number of Christians in what many consider the religion’s heartland, the continent of Europe, is in decline.Christians had the most births and deaths of any religious group in recent years..Between 2010 and 2015, an estimated 223 million babies were born to Christian mothers and roughly 107 million Christians died – a natural increase of 116 million.But among Christians in Europe the reverse is true: Deaths outnumbered births by nearly 6 million during this brief period.”

BREAKING: Sessions Announces Illegal Aliens Who Illegally Re-Enter The U.S. Will Be Charged With a Felony

Great!! “Sessions announced major changes to Justice Dept protocol when it comes to charging and prosecuting illegal aliens..”The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws and the catch and release practices of old are over,” Starting today, federal prosecutors are now required to consider for prosecution all of the following:The transportation or harboring of aliens.. Further, where an alien has unlawfully entered the country, which is a misdemeanor, that alien will now be charged with a felony if they unlawfully enter or attempt to enter a 2nd time and certain aggravating circumstances are present…Fourth: where possible, prosecutors are directed to charge criminal aliens with document fraud and aggravated identiy theft — the latter carrying a two-year mandatory minimum sentence.”

Trump ends federal jobs freeze as he moves to ‘drain the swamp’

Yeah! “Trump will begin the next phase of his massive overhaul of the federal government Wed, directing agencies in a memo to bring their operations in line with his proposed budget immediately. Agencies he’s said he wants to slash should cut their workforce accordingly..’This is a big part of draining the swamp,’ OMB Dir Mick Mulvaney told reporters Tues. Trump will end his fed hiring freeze as part of the top-to-bottom reorg. Mulvaney said some departments would see their operations beefed up in the process. Others will see cuts. ‘Consistent with the president’s priorities in the budget, certain agencies will end up hiring more people,’ he said.The Dept of Defense, which Trump has designated for a $54 billion plus up, and the VA Dept, slated to receive $4.5 billion more than it did this fiscal year, should plan to bring on additional support staff, he said.”

Trump: ‘We’re not going into Syria’

Must Read! “Amid complaints that ..his policy is confusing, Trump cleared the air.“We’re not going into Syria,”he said. “Our policy is the same – it hasn’t changed..”The president called Assad a “barbarian” for using sarin gas, but said last week’s successful missile strike was not the start of a campaign to oust the dictator.“Our big mission is getting rid of ISIS,..” He was especially upset that Syria had used chemical weapons after supposedly destroying all its stockpiles under a deal Obama signed in 2013. I asked whether that fact gave him more pause about Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran…Trump said. “It was the single worst deal ever. It made Iran a power from a country that was ready to fall apart…”Noting those problems and N Korea’s threatening aggression, Trump said, “I knew I was left a mess, but it’s worse than I thought.”

Wildfires scorch parts of Florida; gov. declares emergency – SaintPetersBlog

Wow! “Firefighters are battling wildfires from the top of Fl near the GA line to Miami-Dade County in the south as the governor declared a state of emergency Tuesday.Gov. Scott said the proclamation will make it easier for state, regional and local agencies to “quickly work together to protect our families, visitors and communities” as authorities battle more than 100 wildfires around the state.“Thank God we have the firefighters we do at the local, state and federal level and willing to put their lives at risk to take care of us,” he added. “If it hadn’t been for their hard work we would’ve lost a lot of homes … all across the state.”The blaze is also affecting wildlife. On Sun, Pembroke Pines Police reported that a group of teens caught a 13-foot python with burns on its skin in that So Fl community near the Everglades Wildlife Management Area.”

New Book: “Challenge of Dawa” A Threat Greater Than Islamic Terror |

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is Islam’s most eloquent apostate. She has just published a slim book that.. describes the world-wide ideological campaign waged by Islamists as a complement to jihad. It is the greatest threat facing the West.. her book, “The Challenge of Dawa,” is an attempt to persuade the Trump administration to adopt “a comprehensive anti-dawa strategy before it is too late…Islam the religion, is a Trojan horse that conceals Islamism the political movement. Since dawa is a religious missionary activity, its proponents “enjoy a much greater protection by the law”..CAIR has been penetrating the public schools and textbook publishers with false accounts of Christianity and claims that Islam grew peacefully.. The Boca Raton based Citizens for Nat’l Security has published a report detailing 25 Islam-biased history and political science texts in the state of Fl alone.”

Democrats have zero leverage after Gorsuch

Good Article written by the editor-in-chief of the Cato Supreme Court Review. “This was an eventful week for two gov institutions, the Supreme Court and Senate. More than a year after Justice Scalia’s death, the high court will on Mon finally return to a full complement of nine justices. But the confirmation of the newest justice, Gorsuch, happened only after the Senate decided, on a party-line vote, to exercise the “nuclear option” and remove filibusters for Supreme Court nominations.These developments sound like a really big deal, but they were easily predictable given our toxic political climate and won’t actually change the operations of either institution. But here are five takeaways for our post-nuclear-option world:1. The Supreme Court. The court effectively returns to the status quo before Scalia’s death.”

The Rice Controversy: Is The Media Proving Trump Correct?

Good Read!”Media spins for Rice continue including MSNBC Joy Reid describing the softball interview with Andrea Mitchell as a type of “Government for Dummies” lecture:..Of course, unmasking political opponents, would not be how the government is supposed work. Nor is alleged lying about knowing nothing about the unmasking in prior interviews – a curious conflict with Reid’s take that Rice was trying to explain how government works. This was Rice’s 2nd or 3rd explanation.The controversy occurs after the Washington Post gave Rice a retroactive “Four Pinnochios” for her claim that the Obama Administration got rid of all chemical weapons in Syria. (That is not the first time that Rice has been accused of false statements on national security issues). None of this seems to matter in the coverage of the most recent controversy involving Rice.”

Washington Post Gives Obama ‘Four Pinocchios’ for False VA Claim

No wonder nothing has changed at the VA. “The Washington Post fact checker gave Obama “Four Pinocchios” for claiming that his administration fired “a whole bunch of people” who were in charge of facilities at the Dept of VA since 2014, determining that the statement was completely false.Obama is not the only one accused of misleading the public about the number of people held accountable for manipulating patient wait-time data at the VA. Sec McDonald has twice received Four Pinocchio ratings for making similar claims.Congress passed the “Choice Act,” allowing more veterans to seek private care outside the VA, and authorized McDonald to expedite disciplinary actions for senior executive employees…While the VA has terminated more than 4,095 employees since 2014, only 3 senior executives fitting Obama’s “in charge” description at the facilities were fired under McDonald.”

A Guide To Repealing ObamaCare, Hidden In Plain Site

“As Republicans search a way to repeal ObamaCare, they should look to the states for answers. After all, several of them had to find solutions when their ObamaCare-like reforms started to fail.The GOP has decided that any ObamaCare repeal plan must keep the core feature of ObamaCare protections for those with pre-existing conditions. Are they not aware that several states have already gone through this exercise and that many abandoned these protections after their ins markets started to implode?In the early 1990s, several states adopted “guaranteed issue” and “community rating”.As with ObamaCare, these regulations banned insurers from denying coverage or charging people more because they were sick. And, just like ObamaCare, they all caused their individual insurance markets to collapse, as premiums skyrocketed and insurers fled the markets.So what happened?”

George Soros Pumps Big Bucks to Wield Influence in Florida Governor’s Race and Beyond

Republicans have their work cut out to fight Soros and his backing of the Fl Democratic party-FDP”Democrat megadonor Soros is digging his hands deep into Fl politics, pumping millions of dollars into liberal causes and candidates’ campaign accounts, all while setting the stage to go all in for gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum next year. Gillum announced a whopping $765,000 in campaign contributions. .. Soros has donated millions of dollars to the FDP in recent years. In 2016, he funneled $1.3 million to help out the Democrats in a pivotal election year.On top of that, Soros gave $1.3 million to the Fl Safety and Justice political committee, which in turn dumped hundreds of thousands of dollars into TV to oust Orange-Osceola State Attorney Ashton and elect state attorney Aramis Ayala into office.”

Feds Colluded with Wildlife Groups to Block Trump’s Wall – Liberty News Now

Wow! “Wildlife groups are collaborating with a federal government agency to halt construction of the southern border wall by fudging science to claim that unimpeded trans-border corridors are essential to an “endangered species” with 99% of its pop in Mex. Under the plan, large areas of AZ and NM would be prohibited from erecting a border wall so that jaguars-which don’t even occupy the area-can roam between the 2 countries. More than ¾ million acres in AZ and NM would be designated as critical habitat under the federal End Species Act (ESA).. Judicial Watch obtained records from AZ’s Game and Fish Dept, local governments ..fighting the effort to designate the area a “critical habitat” for jaguars. It started in 2012 when the Obama administration relaxed ESA requirements to make designation of critical habitat easier for the US Fish and Wildlife Service.”

The SB 10 Express: Ask Some Real Questions, Somebody!

Time to ask our FL senators about this bill and its cost-effectiveness!! “By now, I’m sure you know about Wed’s total revision of the bill Negron is trying to salvage to create a reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee.The bill passed the Sen Appropriations Committee and is headed to the floor. Columnist Gil Smart laments its downsized state.; He says, “instead of borrowing $1.2 billion to buy 60,000 acres, the state would use 14,000 acres it already owns, try to buy 10,000 more, and build a deeper reservoir.”OK, but what about the details in this thing? We’re looking at the 2nd strike-all on a bill that ties the state up in debt for years. Shouldn’t we at least know the basics — like, what does it do to address the actual discharge problem? What about the septic tanks leaking nutrients that cause algae?”

Blog: ‘Somebody’s got to go to jail, Ben.’ Susan Rice? Evelyn Farkas? Ben Rhodes?

Must Read! “It appears the Obama admin, with the willing intelligence agencies, surveilled Trump, his campaign, and his transition team beginning Oct 2015..Why? Of what were they so afraid? That he could actually win? Indeed, they were apparently afraid of exactly that and were determined to prevent it. Because Obama, by exec order and design, made such illegally gathered intelligence available to many more agencies than the past, leaks to the media were assured. It worked: D.C. media leaked like a sieve. But what if someone discovered their surveilance of the Trump campaign? That would be a big problem. What to do? Accuse Russia of interfering with the election and accuse Trump of colluding with Russia and for causing Clinton’s loss. So, retrospectively, they developed this scheme. And now that plan is collapsing.”

Cohn Backs Wall Street Split of Lending, Investment Banks

Good-Would help prevent too big to fail!!”In a meeting White House economic adviser Gary Cohn said he supports a policy that could radically reshape Wall Street’s biggest firms by separating their consumer-lending businesses from their investment banks.. Cohn..said he generally favors banking going back to how it was when firms like Goldman focused on trading and underwriting securities, and companies such as Citigroup primarily issued loans.The remarks surprised some senators and congressional aides who attended the meeting, as they didn’t expect a former top Wall Street executive to speak favorably of proposals that would force banks to dramatically rethink how they do business.Yet Cohn’s comments echo what Trump and Republican lawmakers have previously said about wanting to bring back the Glass-Steagall Act, that kept bricks-and-mortar lending separate from investment banking… “
