What we need right now: A Christian Attitude in Times of Widespread Sickness and Rumor of Death

Yesterday I avoided reading news websites that I normally view for blog posts. I avoided checking the stock market. I checked my Twitchy app headlines and saw the normal bi-partisan hyperbole, especially after President Trump gave his speech last night on the Wuhan Virus. Heaven forbid, he mentioned it originated in China so now he’s being called a xenophobe, racist, etc., etc.

The progressive media will NOT abandon their hysterics and politics for ONE minute. They have only ONE agenda. But you can spend some time this morning abandoning THEM.

I decided to check out some Twitter timelines of a few of my favorites and came upon this tweet by Mollie Hemingway: “A Christian Attitude in Times of Widespread Sickness and Rumor of Death.”

From the post: “When sickness and death test the foundation of Christian trust in God’s mercy, the Scriptures teach a four-fold attitude of faith, prayer, compassion, and mercy.”

The post is a quick read and includes the following excerpts:

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.”

“Once our hearts have been set at peace, we can consider how to best serve our neighbors. There is a two-fold danger of recklessness on the one hand and debilitating fear on the other. The Christian avoids both by faith.

Read the whole post here.

Faith, prayer, compassion and mercy are very much needed today.

Ignore the media, news, Twitter and take a deep breath. And remember that we are all in this together. With prayer and calm heads this too shall pass and together we can weather the storm.

Good news: US appeals court upholds Trump rules involving abortions

Another reason why it’s so important that President Trump has been making a record amount of court judge appointments.

From SF Gate: (AP) — In a victory for the Trump administration, a U.S. appeals court on Monday upheld rules that bar taxpayer-funded family-planning clinics from referring women for abortions.

The 7-4 ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned decisions issued by judges in Washington, Oregon and California. The court had already allowed the administration’s changes to start taking effect while the government appealed those rulings.

The changes ban taxpayer-funded clinics in the Title X program for low-income women from making abortion referrals, a restriction opponents characterize as a “gag rule.”

Beginning March 4, the rules will also prohibit clinics that receive federal money from sharing office space with abortion providers, which critics said would force many Title X providers to find new locations, undergo expensive remodels or shut down — further reducing access to the program.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA: Oscars Hit All-Time Low

They might have done better had they let Gervais host:

From Yahoo: In the latest TV ratings, ABC’s broadcast of the 2020 Oscars averaged 23.6 million total viewers and a 5.3 demo rating, down 20 and 30 percent from last year’s first host-less outing.

This year’s Academy Awards thus hit new lows in both measures, lagging behind the previous “record holder” — the 2018 Oscars hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

The Oscars outdrew both this award season’s Grammys (which were steady-ish with 18.7 million viewers) and the Golden Globes (which dipped to 18.3 million viewers), making it TV’s most-watched entertainment special in a year (since the previous Oscars), though the Grammys edged out the Oscars in the coveted 18-49 demo (having scored a 5.4 rating).

Last year’s host-less Oscars delivered 29.6 million total viewers and a 7.7 demo rating in Nielsen finals.

Oh noes: Harry and Meghan don’t want to live in LA until Trump leaves office

From Page Six: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be coming to America — but not until President Trump is out of office, a report said Sunday.

After their Megxit deal gets hashed out, the Daily Mail reported that the couple plan on living in Canada and eventually find a home and business in Los Angeles.

“It’s by no means an immediate thing but there is a long-term plan to end up back in the US with a second home in Canada, where they will also spend a great deal of time,” the source said.

But Markle, 38, has said she won’t move back while Trump is president, according to the Mail, citing her friends.

Ahead of the 2016 election, and before she married 35-year-old Harry, the former actress blasted Trump as divisive and misogynist on Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore.”

She said at the time that she was considering remaining in Toronto, where she filmed the USA Network’s “Suits,” if Trump won.

During Trump’s state visit to the UK in June, he was asked about Markle’s comments and lashed back that “I didn’t know that she was nasty.”

He later clarified he meant the comments were nasty.

Neither Markle — who was on maternity leave after giving birth to the couple’s son Archie — or Harry made an appearance at the state banquet at Buckingham Palace during the visit. Harry did, however, attend a royal luncheon with Trump and first lady Melania Trump.

Man arrested over knife murder of ‘Britain’s worst paedophile’ Richard Huckle who was stabbed with makeshift blade in prison cell

I’ve got no picture for this post. Didn’t want to show a picture of the monster and nothing else felt right. So, here’s the story:

From Daily Mail: A 29-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering one of Britain’s worst paedophiles.

Richard Huckle died at HMP Full Sutton in Yorkshire on October 13 last year, reportedly fatally stabbed in his cell with a makeshift blade. On Monday Humberside police said officers had arrested a 29-year-old man and had passed a file to prosecutors for consideration.

Police would not comment as to whether the man arrested was a fellow prisoner.

They issued a short statement that said: ‘A 29-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of a man at HMP Full Sutton on October 13 2019. ‘A file has been submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and we are awaiting their decision regarding charges.’

Huckle was given 22 life sentences at the Old Bailey in 2016 for an unprecedented number of offences against children aged between six months and 12 years.

The freelance photographer, from Ashford in Kent, awarded himself ‘Pedopoints’ for different acts of abuse against 191 youngsters, and sold images of his depravity on the dark web.

In online posts, Huckle bragged that it was easier to target impoverished children in Malaysia, than those from wealthy Western backgrounds.

He was arrested when he was stopped at Gatwick Airport en route to spend Christmas with his family in 2014, after Australian authorities tipped off the UK’s National Crime Agency.

At the time of his arrest, he was writing a guide to teach fellow paedophiles how to abuse children and avoid detection.

Officers seized his encrypted laptop and managed to uncover more than 20,000 indecent pictures and videos although there were other files they were unable to crack.

President Trump signs anti-robocall law

The Hill reports that on Dec. 30, 2019, President Trump signed into law the Pallone-Thune Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act, a bill aimed at reducing the scourge of robocalls that plague  millions of Americans every year.

The bill was a rare bipartisan and bicameral feat for this Congress, where Democrats have chosen to spend their time, energy, and millions of taxpayer dollars on the baseless and fruitless “investigations” of President Trump, from the so-called Russian collusion to the present impeachment witchhunt.

In a statement, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Trump was “proud” to sign the TRACED Act, and that “This historic legislation will provide American consumers with even greater protection against annoying unsolicited robocalls. American families deserve control over their communications, and this legislation will update our laws and regulations to stiffen penalties, increase transparency, and enhance government collaboration to stop unwanted solicitation.”

Over the past several years, illegal robocalls have spiked enormously in the U.S. as scammers find new and cheap ways to dial up consumers en masse as they pry for sensitive personal information. The scammers, oftentimes located outside of the country, frequently target vulnerable populations as they ask for social security numbers, credit card information and more.

Although robocalls won’t disappear entirely, experts say we can expect to see a reduction in the billions of spam calls within six months because the TRACED Act will put the onus on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and phone companies to:

  • Require phone companies to block illegal robocalls without charging customers any extra money.
  • Require most carriers in the U.S. to ensure that calls are coming from real numbers.
  • Give government regulators more time to find scammers and penalize them more aggressively, increasing fines to $10,000 for illegal robocalling operations.
