DAILY BIBLE VERSE
But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15 NIV
81 to go
Let me be clear: Government and Big Tech are working together to censor conservative views, and because they are I moved my newsletter to Substack.
Because you are a free subscriber to my newsletter, I would like you to consider subscribing to the paid version on Substack.
A Substack subscription-based newsletter allows my team and I to focus on what matters: the writing and the research we do to back up the writing, instead of worrying about censorship, or what Google is saying about me, how they are handling advertising on our website or whether or not my work shows up when you search for it.
To keep the newsletter going, we have setup a monthly goal of identifying 900 new paying subscribers for the month of October and we have 81 to go.
If you can afford to do so, please subscribe here:

Please join me tonight for a great new episode of “Huckabee” on TBN. I’ll talk to former US Senator Scott Brown, and to Eli Beer, founder of United Hatzalah of Israel, about providing first response medical care to victims of terrorism. The Rev.

Maine shooting update
Here are the latest updates on the mass shooting in Maine that left 18 people dead.
The big news is that after an intensive manhunt, suspect Robert Card was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot, near a dumpster by a recycling plant where he used to work. It’s a great relief to residents who had been told to stay in their homes for safety as long as he was on the loose and his whereabouts unknown. I hope you will join me in praying for the victims and their families, and for the recovery of those who were injured. Go to that link and scroll down to find an article that tells about the victims. Mourning them and recognizing their lives and accomplishments is what we should be doing now.
I’m not going to respond in detail to all the people who are trying to exploit this tragedy to push gun control agendas. They’re hoping that the immense shock and grief will prevent people from asking questions like, “Would this proposal have made any difference, or even made matters worse?” For instance, we’ve since learned that Card was already prohibited by law from owning a firearm but obtained one anyway. And at least one and possibly both of the places he targeted were “gun-free zones” where he knew there would be no armed law-abiding citizens to stop him.
Here is the link to today’s Fox News page of continuously-updated war news from Israel.
In the most recent developments: Israel struck back at Hezbollah targets in Lebanon after they fired rockets into Israel. Overnight on Friday, Israel started its ground offensive in Gaza, attacking about 150 underground targets such as the tunnels Hamas has built to hide out in and facilitate its attacks and escapes. Relatives of some of the hostages are demanding to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu to lobby for him to hold off on attacking the tunnels because they believe hostages are being held there.
But Israel has already rejected calls for a “humanitarian pause” in its Gaza offensive to bring supplies to Palestinians, saying that any pause in the assault gives more time to Hamas to fortify its positions. Critics also say they want more time to negotiate for the release of hostages. Personally, I would think that letting Hamas know that holding on to the hostages is buying them a ceasefire and more time to regroup would only give them more reason not to release the hostages.
And just to hammer home exactly what Israel is dealing with: Before the nouveau Holocaust deniers have time to get any fools to believe their narratives, here is (warning: very disturbing) video of an IDF commander confirming that, yes, they found bodies of people who were burned to death and babies beheaded by Hamas.
Here in the US, hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters converged on Grand Central Terminal in New York City, forcing it to shut down at rush hour. Incredibly, the protest was organized by a leftwing Jewish group called “Jewish Voice for Peace.” And nothing says “I love peace” like giving aid and comfort to Hamas.
Billionaire investor Leon Cooperman, who has given about $50 million to his alma mater Columbia University over the years, says his donations will now go elsewhere because of the rabid, pro-Hamas demonstrations by Columbia students. Cooperman said, “These kids at the colleges have (BLEEP) for brains,” adding, "We have one reliable ally in the Middle East. That's Israel. We only have one democracy in the Middle East. That's Israel. And we have one economy tolerant of different people, gays, lesbians, etc. That's Israel. So they have no idea what these young kids are doing."
Actually, I believe these college administrators and professors know exactly what the students are doing, and where they got these insane, anti-Semitic ideas. They’re just worried that they’ve become so obvious all of a sudden. They were supposed to graduate, then go out into society and quietly infect America with these rotten ideas, not expose them all at once in broad daylight.
Watching all these so-called liberals fly their anti-Semitism flags so proudly makes one wonder why most members of the Democratic Party – famous for loudly calling people racists and anti-Semites when it’s to their advantage – are keeping so quiet. Maybe because just this week, their House members unanimously voted to make their leader, Hakeem Jeffries, Speaker, and he has a written record of wildly racist and anti-Semitic opinions that has recently resurfaced.
And as long as we’re digging up long-buried evidence of what today’s Democratic leaders really are, here’s a video from 2018 of Trump-hating New York Attorney General Letitia James whipping up a racist crowd with an anti-white, anti-male chant.
Echo of the past
I mentioned yesterday the story of the pro-Palestinian protesters at the Cooper Union, a private college in New York City’s East Village, threatening Jewish students. In a frightening echo of the 1930s and Anne Frank, they were advised to hide in the attic of the library. Well, here’s more on that story, including video. Anyone who says we should allow this in America forever loses the right to ask why Germans didn’t stand up to the Nazis.
Clueless Idiot of the Day:
Newsmax shared video of a pro-Palestinian protester demanding through a bullhorn that companies such as Nike that do business with Israel be boycotted. She apparently wasn’t aware that she was wearing Nike Air Forces sneakers.
Ironically, this was probably the least important thing that she’s obviously not aware of.
Clueless Idiot of the Day, Celebrity Division:
You have to hand it to Joy Behar, it can’t be easy to come up with a statement that’s being described as the dumbest thing ever said on “The View,” but she’s definitely in the running with this one.
A Bad Day of Court Decisions for President Trump
Former President Trump had a bad day for court decisions Friday, with a Colorado judge ruling that a lawsuit that’s trying to keep him off the ballot in 2024 using the ludicrous 14th Amendment argument can go forward. There are other such cases around the country receiving various and contradictory rulings. So far, the Supreme Court has refused to step and do its job. But they eventually will have to rule on this, so it would be nice if they’d speak up and protect the Constitution and “our democracy” by putting the kibosh on this nonsense before we actually hold the election.
Also, the judge in Trump’s kangaroo court fraud trial in New York ruled that his daughter Ivanka will have to testify against her own father, I guess because this trial just didn’t seem low enough. The prosecutors claim Ivanka has relevant information, and the judge said, “Ms. Trump has clearly availed herself of the privilege of doing business in New York." After seeing this attempt at twisting the law to destroy a man’s business out of political animosity, I don’t think I would call that a “privilege.”
I hope Trump’s attorneys will ask her to state under oath and into the court record for posterity exactly what she thinks of both the judge and New York’s Attorney General Letitia James.
Welcome to Consequences:
A female alderman in the Chicago neighborhood of Brighton Park was assaulted by an angry mob protesting a plan to build a housing camp for 2,000 illegal immigrants. As this story notes, these people not only elected the local Democrats who boasted of making Chicago a “sanctuary city,” but they voted for Joe "Open Border" Biden for President by over 80%.
Related: Remember when Democrats like New York Mayor Eric Adams were denouncing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott as “inhumane” for busing to blue states some of the millions of illegal aliens that Biden let pour into Texas? Well, once those blue states and cities got a taste of what Biden’s policies were inflicting on border states, it’s been noted that suddenly, they’re sounding a lot like red border states. And here’s just the latest example:
With each and every illegal immigrant costing New York City about $380 a day, not to mention all the drugs and violence they’ve brought, Mayor Adams has set up a “reticketing center for migrants.” That means he’s offering a free plane ticket to illegal immigrants to fly to anywhere they want that isn’t New York City. I thought that was “inhumane,” but then, who can say that about helping anyone leave New York City?
But as Kevin Downey Jr. at PJ Media points out, this could also be read as, “If you can just get to New York City, they’ll give you a free plane ticket to anywhere!” Fortunately, it’s easy to get there: just walk across the border and Texas will give you a free bus ride there.
Congratulations are in order
Congratulations to England’s University of Exeter, which has somehow managed to come up with a degree program that’s an even bigger waste of money than getting a gender studies degree.
