The Best-Kept Secret in Disaster
Relief: Southern Baptists

PJ Media, by John Ellis

Original Article

As Hurricane Irma leaves behind a trail of destruction and pain, the nation again turns its eyes to disaster relief. Just a few weeks ago, Hurricane Harvey brought out the best in many of us. Desiring to aid the victims in Texas, celebrities traded on their popularity to encourage donations and volunteers. Average citizens opened up their wallets, gave of their time, and expended energy as they rushed to help fellow citizens. Local non-profits and large multi-national corporations alike demonstrated that compassion is a universal trait of humanity. No doubt, the response to Hurricane Irma will be just as compassionate

My mother lives in Rockport, and while her home suffered only minor damage, she was left without food, water electricity for a couple of weeks. The Baptists showed up donating food, ice, even provided her with an electrical generator free of charge.
Government-hired workers, meanwhile, ripped up the lawn while moving fallen trees, and piled them where they blocked Mom´s driveway despite being asked not to, telling her they were empowered by FEMA to do pretty much whatever they pleased.

It´s probably a lot easier to organize a church group than all the red tape the government requires. The local communities know their territory & needs better than the federal government.

Isn´t this group on the Southern Poverty Law Cinter´s terrorist map? Since the word ´Southern´ is in the name, it must be a white supremacist group.

Here in Houston, the Mormons were some of the first boots on the ground getting in to help gut homes. In fact, Catholic Relief services tagged along with them as they were so organized. ANYONE was able to get on the ever-growing list of homes to gut. Work gangs spread to neighborhoods and just starting going house to house to muck and gut the drywall. Lawyers, engineers, college kids -- it´s been all hands on deck. It is truly love in action. The Baptists have been amazing - actually -- EVERYONE has been amazing. Its such a light of hope, seeing all the sweetness and goodness and love towards each other, total strangers, in the light of this catastrophe. So weird and encouraging we get to see the best version of ourselves in this tragedy.

Texas Baptist Men is the state arm of well trained and equipped men who are ready to go in an instant.

Though no longer a Baptist, I give monthly to the Texas Baptist Men´s disaster relief program.

Baptists were all over Baton Rouge and vicinity last year when we flooded. They´re mostly who we saw since we´re Baptists as well as the folks we were assisting. But we also had Mormans and Catholics assist - whoever signed up.

The NAACP also showed up but made it known they were there to only help "their" folks.

Through the year,the media, including the press & hollyweird, routinely marginalizes or ignores completely anything positive about Protestants, and especially Baptists. The media is quick to condemn but slow to acknowledge. Nevertheless, the truth remains the truth.

The FUMCWG didn´t have any electric yesterday and their food pantry was open to anyone who needed help. Another center did not have electricity to cook lunch for the homeless in Central FL.
If you live in any of these disaster areas, please keep a bag of non-perishables and easy open cans to help the homeless. Wipes are desperately needed for them to keep clean. A zip lock bag will keep papers dry for them.

REVEALED: Baltimore homicide detective shot
dead with his OWN gun was due to testify against
fellow officers indicted for drug-dealing
Daily Mail [UK], by Abigail Miller    Original Article

A Baltimore police officer who was killed with his own service weapon was preparing to testify against fellow officers indicted in a drug-running scheme. Sean Suiter, 43, was fatally shot in the head on November 15, and authorities say there is evidence of a struggle, according to the Baltimore Sun. At the time of his murder, the homicide detective was scheduled to testify before a federal grand jury about a case that alleged police in his city had conspired with cops in Philadelphia to sell cocaine and heroin. The drugs they were going to sell were allegedly seized from the streets of Baltimore,

The Rise of the Beta Male Sexual Harasser
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 11/23/2017 4:43:52     Post Reply
The winds of what the New York Post calls Pervnado continue to gather strength, carving a hole through the beta male worlds of NPR, PBS, Hollywood, the New Republic, Vox, the New York Times, and MSNBC, among others. What emerges from this storm of scandal is a clearer picture of a culture that trained men not to respect women but to respect feminism. In many ways, the Beta Male sexual harasser is the squalid offspring of the unhappy marriage between feminism and the sexual revolution, from whose chaotic household he learned virtue-signaling without virtue. The growing pile of confession notes —

A Washington Post columnist said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders humiliates the media on a daily basis. In a column published Tuesday, opinion writer Kathleen Parker referenced Sanders asking reporters earlier this week to say what they were thankful for before asking a question. "Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship," Parker wrote. "I´m thankful I wasn´t in the room." She wrote that her first impulse when someone asks her to share is to "not-share."

Hillary’s Version

The American political community has not taken adequate notice of Hillary Clinton’s book What Happened (the title is not posed as a question). It was generally panned when it came out a couple of months ago for blaming everyone but herself for her defeat. I have never been a Clinton-basher, and I was astonished by the venom, untruthfulness, and zealotry of her account. Mrs. Clinton writes persuasively of seeking “grace” after her defeat, and concluded most of her speeches throughout the 2016 campaign calling for “love and kindness,” yet she is unrelievedly ungracious. She describes her opponent as a clear

Americans have been buried in the last six weeks by a blizzard of reports of sexual harassment, assault, misconduct and malfeasance from our politicians, journalists and Hollywood glitterati. In the last week alone, we´ve seen a picture of Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., during his pre-senatorial days placing his hands over a sleeping woman´s breasts; the suspension of New York Times journalist Glenn Thrush for allegedly harassing young female journalists; and eight women telling the Washington Post that fabled television host Charlie Rose had made unwanted sexual advances ranging from groping to lewd phone calls.

Al Franken allegations are a big
money problem for Democrats
Washington Examiner [DC], by David M. Drucker*    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 11/22/2017 5:05:22     Post Reply
Sexual misconduct allegations against Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota could cost the Democrats a rising star who energized progressives and a rainmaker who drove millions into establishment coffers. During the 2016 election cycle, Franken transferred more than $322,000 in personal campaign funds to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. A similar cash infusion is presumably off limits in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections, as Franken is politically damaged goods now that he stands accused by two women of groping. Perhaps a bigger loss than his direct contributions to Democrats’ Senate campaign arm is the

“Hillary Clinton needs to stop. She needs to stop talking about this topic unless Bill Clinton wants to come forward and apologize for being a sexual harasser.” — MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski No, Mika. Hillary Clinton just needs to stop talking. Period. Like the “Morning Joe” co-host, I was also taken aback when Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of having “disgraced the office.” Really, Hillary, you’re going to go there? You, the die-hard defender of the president who put the “D” in “disgrace,” “deceive” and most embarrassingly “DNA on the Oval Office carpet” — you are going to talk about disgrace?

While it’s becoming obvious that sexual abuse by those in positions of authority is being uncovered in virtually every profession in America, the debate thus far has focused on three “industries” (for lack of a better term) which seem to draw the most public interest. Two of those are the Hollywood entertainment kingdom and the media which is supposed to be covering these stories. As for the first, victims are coming forward in droves with new stories seemingly breaking every day. Accusers are frequently revealing their own identities despite the unwanted attention it may bring them and they are naming

The American mom held hostage by the Taliban for five years says she was beaten and raped as she tried to protect her children from their captors. Caitlan Coleman Boyle, 31, from Stewartstown, Pennsylvania — who was abducted while traveling in Afghanistan with her husband, Joshua Boyle, 34, of Perth-Andover, Canada, and had three children in captivity — described the brutal treatment her family endured in captivity, in an exclusive broadcast interview with ABC News. She said some of their guards “hated children” and targeted their eldest son for beatings, sometimes with a stick, claiming the young boy was “making

Imagine: even the New York Times’ Ross Douthat now thinks that Bill Clinton should have stepped down over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Douthat’s mea culpa op-ed in this past weekend’s paper, in which he confesses that he and others may have been wrong to dismiss Bill Clinton’s indefensible behavior, will serve as the official political obituary for Clinton, Inc. Hillary Clinton is done, finished, kaput. Dogged by scandals old and new, out of step politically, her excess baggage has morphed into an entire baggage train, dragging her towards political oblivion. While it is refreshing to consider the landscape unadorned by Clintons,

First ladies are bad enough, and the recent habit of referring to the wife of the vice president as “the second lady” is nauseating. The first Mrs. Trump does have a point: From a certain point of view, Melania is the third lady. But what the hell is Steven Mnuchin’s wife? The eighth or ninth lady? Mnuchin, formerly of Goldman Sachs, is pure Wall Street malignity in concentrated form, a guy who looks like he was born wearing a blue suit and braces. And that, in itself, is okay: A little Scrooge McDuck–style sphincter-clenching is kind of what you want

A new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research finds the race in a statistical tie nearly two weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct against Republican Roy Moore rocked the campaign.

Among party lines, nearly half (48%) of Republican voters surveyed do not believe the allegations. Another 24% of Republicans say they believe some

A retired Alabama police officer said she was told to keep an eye on Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore back in the 1980s because he was known to harass teenage cheerleaders at local school ballgames. Ex-Gadsden cop Faye Gray told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that rumors of Moore’s liking young girls were heard on a daily basis and she was informed that he had been banned from Gadsden Mall because he allegedly targeted young female employees. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Faye said.

Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable.

The NFL is considering an idea for next year to keep players inside their locker rooms during the playing of the National Anthem. "I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen," said one person familiar with the owners´ deliberations on anthem-related issues.Years ago, the players would come out on the field to warm up and then return to the locker room during the National Anthem. The league is thinking of going back to that policy. Washington Post: That person said it was "too early to tell" for certain

"While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women," Barton, who is twice-divorced, said in the statement. "Each was consensual.

WASHINGTON – Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, known as a champion for gay rights, is expected to play a key role in the outcome of the Supreme Court’s review of a Colorado baker’s decision to refuse service to a same-sex couple on religious grounds. A senior director with the American Civil Liberties Union said Thursday that Kennedy has been distracted by the “deep faith” of Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, who refused to bake a wedding cake for Charlie Craig and David Mullins. Kennedy, an 81-year-old Republican, has been instrumental in scoring several key judicial victories for gay rights. “I think
