Calling Scientology a dangerous
´cult,´ Calvary Baptist Church pastor
intended to help A&E film
episode for Leah Remini series

Tampa Bay Times, by Tracey McManus

CLEARWATER — In an unprecedented public condemnation by a local religious organization about the Church of Scientology, Calvary Baptist Church Pastor Willy Rice declared Wednesday that the "community has been tormented by this Goliath for far too long." "Someone has to pick up a rock and a slingshot and trust God with the results," Rice wrote in a blog post that has since been removed from the Calvary website. "We believe we are in a unique position in this community and should try to help." To expose "the cult´s dangerous, deceptive and abusive practices," Calvary Baptist had committed to allow A&E´s Emmy-nominated

Comments:
If you haven´t yet seen Leah Remini´s series, which is now up to eight episodes with more in the works, watch it. Scientology functions like a totalitarian government, attempting to control the thoughts and actions of their membership. Sea-Org members cannot go online freely or even send or receive mail that hasn´t first been read by superiors. Losing their tax exemption is what they fear most, and what the intrepid Ms. Remini is hoping to accomplish.

I´m sure it wouldn´t be hard to Tie Scientology to Islam...methodologies are much the same, believe or die!

Godspeed, Reverend. Those people do not take kindly to attacks. They also don´t care for mockingly posed selfies in front of their HQ, ha ha, so if you do it, be quick.

The really really sad part is the ´religion´ of Scientology was created from the daft mind of a science fiction writer... L.Ron Hubbard...

I haven´t seen Leah Remini´s series, but I did see Going Clear which covers much of the same ground. Scientology is led by dangerous sociopaths.

The Voter Purges Aren’t Coming, Just

On the morning of the first meeting of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Election Integrity, Vanita Gupta -- the head of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division under the Obama administration -- published a “Moon Landing Was Faked”-level rant about the Committee’s supposed dangers to American democracy. She really did title it “The Voter Purges Are Coming.” They aren’t, Miss Gupta, but your op-ed does a tremendous job of making the case for an immediate purge of Obama-era executive branch hires. Gupta was not simply popping off on her own. The institutional Left really, really does not want this Committee, or

Now here, in all its glory, is a supremely tangential link (found in a Metro article called ´Global warming is now messing with wine, so can you PLEASE STOP WRECKING THE WORLD´): Global warming is “going to up the price of wine across the board”. Readers may want to know the details about this fatal connection between man-created global warming and the high price of wine. Though -- it must be said straight away -- this can´t always the case at present. It must surely depend on which wines you like and where you buy your wine from. Anyway, this is the hard

Heavens to Murgatroyd! Does every cartoon character need to be revamped for “the current year"? You might be familiar with Snagglepuss, aka America’s favorite pink cartoon mountain lion, from his wacky and family-friendly adventures during his 32-episode series as seen on The Yogi Bear Show since 1961. If you’ve ever wanted to see classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters like Wally Gator and Quick Draw McGraw back in the limelight for a new generation to enjoy, take a look at how DC Comics has drastically changed Snagglepuss for his upcoming comic book series that is set to debut this autumn: (Snip) Comic book

Why Newspapers Are Dying and
Why Antitrust Can´t Save Them

One of the less-discussed stories this week was that a consortium of traditionally published newspapers was starting to lobby for some sort of arrangement to break the "digital duopoly" of Facebook and Google on digital content. In this Ars Technica article, they point to the (recently renamed) News Media Alliance, which wants the U.S. government to relax antitrust restrictions so that the Alliance can negotiate with the Google-Facebook "duopoly." There´s no question that the Internet has changed the whole ecological balance of the way news is presented and published. We´ve been writing about those changes for close to ten years here

Johannesburg – amaBhungane investigative journalist Micah Reddy was allegedly assaulted by Black First Land First (BLF) members in Braamfontein after a panel interview with its leader Andile Mngxitama on Monday afternoon. amaBhungane´s Sam Sole said Reddy was physically harassed by people who identified themselves as BLF members while trying to leave the panel studio after the debate. Reddy is expected to lay charges against BLF, he said. "It’s a clear violation of the court interdict. We have a responsibility to lay charges," Sole said.

Obamacare Survives Thanks to

In Monday´s Wall Street Journal, Weekly Standard executive editor Fred Barnes did his best to knock some sense into GOP lawmakers, advising them to compromise on healthcare ("Republicans Aren´t Team Players"), but it seems Jerry Moran and Mike Lee, at least, weren´t listening. The Kansas and Utah senators announced they would vote no on their party´s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, joining Susan Collins and Rand Paul in the nyet column, therefore tanking the bill. Bravo to them. They maintained their ideological purity. But that´s the problem, because in so doing they have put our country on the royal road

WASHINGTON - Sen. Bill Nelson on Monday criticized his likely 2018 rival Rick Scott during a Senate floor speech on climate change. "Just last month in the state of Florida, the Florida Legislature passed and the governor signed into law a bill that allows any resident of the state, regardless of whether or not they have a student in school, can challenge what is being taught in the public schools," Nelson said. "So, if a single resident objects to a certain subject that students are being taught having to do with science -- a subject such as what´s happening in

A new paper analyzing government temperature data says the Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) data published by NASA and NOAA are "not a valid representation of reality." In fact, the three respected scientists who published the paper hint strongly that the data may have been fudged. (Snip) The scientists are not arguing that adjustments to temperature data are not necessary. Over the 160 years or so of recorded temps, the weather stations where the data is gathered sometimes move, or a city grows up around them, or there is a change in sea levels where the temps are recorded.

Bill Nye Gets Emmy Nomination
For ‘Sexual Spectrum’ Episode

Comedian Bill Nye received an Emmy Award nomination Thursday for his Netflix show’s “Sexual Spectrum” episode. The Television Academy Awards nominated writers on “Bill Nye Saves The World” for a musical number suggesting that sexuality exists on a spectrum. The episode raised concern from conservatives and YouTube denizens alike, many of whom mocked the show for awkwardly associating social sciences with physical sciences. “It’s been a record-breaking year for television, continuing its explosive growth,” Television Academy Chairman Hayma Washington said in a press statement announcing this year’s Emmy nominations. “We are thrilled to once again honor the very best that television has

The movement to stop prosecuting subway fare-beaters, announced recently by the Manhattan district attorney and soon to be adopted in Brooklyn, must be expanded citywide, public defenders argue. The Legal Aid Society, the Bronx Defenders, Queens Law Associates and other groups have joined efforts to pressure prosecutors in Queens and the Bronx to get onboard with the cause, which advocates say will help unclog the courts. Advocates say arresting turnstile jumpers unfairly disadvantages the city’s poor population. “Fare evasion is the ultimate crime of poverty in New York City, yet the Queens and Bronx district attorneys continue to prosecute our clients and others

AP Mourns: No Trump Travel Slump
PowerLine, by John Hinderaker    Original Article

The Associated Press pined to write an article about how international travel to the U.S. is down because foreigners hate President Trump, or because of the travel ban. Or something. Last winter, the U.S. tourism industry fretted that Trump administration policies might lead to a “Trump slump” in travel. But those fears may have been premature. International arrivals and travel-related spending are up in 2017 compared with the same period in 2016. There might even be a “Trump bump,” says Roger Dow, CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, a nonprofit representing the travel industry. A few months ago, Dow and

Last week, Democrats and two mainstream media outlets branded Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian legal nonprofit which has won seven Supreme Court cases in seven years, an "anti-LGBT hate group." Worse, this "hate" designation comes from a terror-linked organization, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). ADF has demanded an apology and attacked this "media malpractice." "Why is ABC and NBC willing to promote propaganda and cut and paste the Southern Poverty Law Center press release?" Kristen Waggoner, a senior vice president at ADF, asked Tucker Carlson on Fox News Friday night. "Americans are losing trust in the media for this

The Minnesota cop who shot and killed an Australian bride-to-be opened fire on her after being startled by a “loud sound” near his patrol car, investigators say. Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The agency provided an update Tuesday on their investigation into the Saturday night shooting. Officers Noor and Harrity had been called to Damond’s home after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault happening

Heading to church one evening in late March, a farmworker and her sister were stopped for speeding in the village of Geneseo, N.Y. They were driving with their five children in the back of the minivan. Two were not in car seats, as required. The police officer, trying to cite the driver for the infractions, discovered she had no driver’s license, so he called Border Patrol to review her Guatemalan passport. Both sisters were undocumented immigrants. They were detained and are facing deportation. Under a Trump administration that has taken an aggressive stance on illegal immigration, the moving car has

Susan Rice will no longer be appearing in front of the House committee on Tuesday to answer questions about her unmasking of Trump and his private associates. Rice was expected to give a testimony to the House committee probing her unmasking scandal. It has apparently been postponed. (Snip) As TGP previously reported, independent journalist, Mike Cernovich broke the Susan Rice unmasking story in early April. Cernovich reported via Medium: The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests.

Since Hillary Clinton’s unexpected loss to Donald Trump, her donors have strategized with Democratic leadership about how to revive the failing party. Billionaire George Soros held a closed door conference with wealthy donors in November 2016 that addressed how to “take back power” and was attended by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. On the weekend of Trump’s inauguration, David Brock hosted a retreat for the most prolific Democratic donors to figure out how to “kick Donald Trump’s a--.” On July 15, Page Six reported that Sen. Kamala Harris, a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, met with top Clinton donors in the Hamptons. Many figures in Clinton’s inner circle attended, including Clinton’s

President Trump sat down with Russian President Vladimir Putin for a second discussion at the G-20 summit in Germany this month — a talk the White House never disclosed, according to reports. The talk came hours after their two-hour bilateral meeting on July 7, towards the end of a “couples-only social dinner” at the summit, National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton told CNN. Trump and Putin conversed in the room where the dinner was being held. “No staff or Cabinet were at the dinner at all, for any of the countries,” Anton said, adding that translators were present.

Target Corp. Chief Executive Officer Brian Cornell is sounding alarm bells over the state of Hispanic shoppers in the U.S. -- a key growth demographic for many retailers and consumer brands. “The Hispanic consumer in the U.S. is shopping much less,” Cornell said at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech event Tuesday in Aspen, Colorado. “They are staying home. They are going out less often.” Cornell didn’t mention President Donald Trump by name, but he talked about a shift in behavior this year and mentioned “border towns” -- where retailers for years have depended on shoppers from northern Mexico for higher revenue.

Health Reform: There were lots of celebrations on the left side of the aisle after the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare died. The good times will be short lived, because one way or another ObamaCare is going away, and it´s not at all clear that Democrats will gain additional leverage over what comes next by waiting for its collapse. It was amusing to hear Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer say, after the Senate bill failed, that Republicans should "work with Democrats on a bill that lowers premiums, provides long-term stability to the markets and improves our health care

Lee, R-Utah, and Moran, R-Kan., announced their opposition to the bill in tweets in which they cited one another, but they issued separate statements.With Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, already coming out against advancing the healthcare bill, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., no longer has the votes he needs to have least 50 of 52

If any doubts remained that the Fox News channel is continuing to swerve from its conservative roots, they were erased on July 16, 2017 when Ezekiel Emanuel, M.D., a principal architect of Obamacare and a barely hinged spin doctor for the Democrat socialist left, appeared on the channel’s signature weekly program Fox News Sunday in his new role as a paid contributor. During the program, the ever arrogant Emanuel jumped on the Resist Trump bandwagon and suggested that President Trump is worthy of being impeached.

Dunkirk is a great movie but there aren’t enough ‘women’ or ‘people of color’ in it, according to a review in USA Today. The movie – with a cast including Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and former One Direction singer Harry Styles – has been given a slew of five-star reviews for its vivid, nailbiting depiction of the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in 1940. But though USA Today’s reviewer praised it too, he couldn’t resist giving it a little rap on the knuckles about its shameful lack of diversity and equality: The trio of timelines can be jarring as you

Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly "miserable" and can´t wait for the next four years to end. A friend of President Trump´s sons told People that Trump Jr. and Eric Trump "never wanted this." “Don can’t do any deals, because he’ll be overly scrutinized. He just goes to work every day and is miserable," a source in their circle added. Trump Jr. is facing backlash after news surfaced earlier this month that he took a meeting last year with a Russian lawyer.
