Homeless man saves life of pastor
who took him in

BBC News, by Jayne McCormack

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 2/12/2018 10:26:44 AM

There is a saying ´one good turn deserves another´ - and in Pastor John Greenaway´s case, it has proved to be true. He and his family gave shelter to a homeless man in 2016, after a chance meeting in a faith mission book shop. Belfast man Melvin Boyd had fallen on hard times, but said once he met Pastor Greenaway´s family and began living with them, his life changed. In turn, Mr Boyd changed a life when he offered the pastor, who needed an organ transplant, one of his kidneys. (snip) In their first broadcast interview, Mr Boyd said living on the streets was

Just because a person is homeless, does not mean that the person is not a good sole!

Report finds cases of STDs reach
all-time high in California
Associated Press, by Christopher Weber    Original Article
Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- 5/15/2018 12:49:03     Post Reply
Los Angeles - The number of cases of sexually transmitted diseases in California reached a record high last year and officials are particularly concerned by a spike in stillbirths due to congenital syphilis, state health authorities said Monday. More than 300,000 cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in 2017, a 45 percent increase from five years ago, according to data released by the California Department of Public Health. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are most common among people under 30, the report said. Rates of chlamydia are highest among young women, while men account for the majority of syphilis and gonorrhea cases.

AP to offer election voter survey to
replace exit polls
Associated Press, by David Bauder    Original Article
Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- 5/15/2018 12:43:51     Post Reply
New York — The Associated Press said Tuesday that it will begin conducting an elaborate election voter survey designed to replace the traditional in-person exit poll, which has been criticized in recent years for inaccuracy and failing to keep up with changes in how Americans vote. AP is convinced that science is on its side. Still, it’s a bold and potentially risky move for the news cooperative, which counts political coverage as a strong suit and which has, until recently, pooled resources with ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox News to conduct exit polling in major elections.

Throwing rocks at the wrong villain

No man in America is more entitled to the nation’s admiration and gratitude for sacrifice than John McCain. He’s a hero in anybody’s book, with no asterisks. An exclamation point, but no asterisk. The criticism of a young White House aide was harsh for remarking, in a private working session where everything was off the record, that since the senator was “dying, anyway,” he should not be in the calculus for reckoning how the vote might go in the confirmation of Gina Haspel. The aide, one Kelly Sadler, has been roasted and toasted since by critics large and small, Republican and Democrat,

The philanthropic foundation funded by the billionaire George Soros is to close its offices in Hungary, saying it can´t protect its own staff from the country´s government. Open Society Foundations will move its international operations in Budapest to Berlin in Germany, according to a press release Tuesday. "The government of Hungary has denigrated and misrepresented our work and repressed civil society for the sake of political gain, using tactics unprecedented in the history of the European Union," said Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations.

A little sanctimony in the Senate
Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden    Original Article
Posted By: Maryland_Patriot- 5/11/2018 12:09:23     Post Reply
Asking a U.S. senator for his views on morality is the ultimate fool’s errand. As the innkeeper of “Fawlty Towers,” the British sitcom, was fond of saying in moments of neighborly frustration, “you might as well ask the cat.” Yet there the Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee were, seeking by any means necessary to derail the nomination of Gina Haspel for director of the CIA, trying to look as wise as a tree full of owls parsing the fine points of theology, morality and ethics as if they were earnest sophomores at the seminary. At issue was whether Mzz Haspel considers

Fox Business guest endorses torture

Torture is good, a Fox Business guest said Thursday, because it worked on John McCain. Appearing on "Making Monday," retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney simultaneously defended Gina Haspel´s 2002 torture of an Al Qaeda militant in a black-site prison and took a nasty dig at McCain, who was a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War. "That´s why they call him ´Songbird John,´" McInerney told host Charles Payne. "The fact is those methods can work, and they are effective, as former Vice President Cheney said. And if we have to use them to save a million American lives,

Trump on Eric Schneiderman in 2013 tweet:
‘Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner’
Washington Times, by Victor Morton    Original Article

Did President Trump know something? Almost five years ago, Mr. Trump tweeted that Eric Schneiderman, then the new New York attorney general, was “worse than” two well-known Democratic sex criminals. On Monday night, Mr. Schneiderman was the object of the latest #MeToo bombshell. The New Yorker reported in a lengthy feature about four women — two named, two unnamed — accusing Mr. Schneiderman of slapping and choking them in intimate situations without consent and with threatening them with surveillance and death if they talked. Within hours of the article’s publication, Mr. Schneiderman resigned.

Rees-Mogg Proves He’s Ready to Lead

If there’s one politician Donald Trump absolutely has to meet on his trip to the UK this summer, it’s Conservative backbench MP Jacob Rees-Mogg. Though the two men are oceans apart in terms of style and personality – the Jacob being the quintessential English gentleman; the Donald not – what they both possess in spades is the most extraordinary, winning frankness. They would, I’m sure get on like a house on fire. Indeed, with a fair wind, they would make the greatest U.S. president/UK prime minister double act since the era of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. That’s because they tell it

Hatch to McCain: Invite

Sen. John McCain should reconsider his wish that President Donald Trump not attend McCain´s funeral, said Sen. Orrin Hatch, the most senior GOP senator. McCain prefers instead that Vice President Mike Pence attend his funeral rather than Trump, who has mocked McCain for being tortured and attacked him for voting against Obamacare repeal. But Hatch said he thought keeping the president from his funeral was too much: "I think it´s ridiculous." "Well, he´s the president of the United States and he´s a very good man. But it´s up to [McCain]. I think John should have his own wishes fulfilled with regard to

North will be retiring from his role at Fox News effective immediately. He will be taking over the position occupied by Pete Brownell, who did not seek a second term as NRA president.

Federal judge rightly rebukes
Mueller for questionable tactics

An experienced federal judge has confirmed what I have been arguing for months — namely, that the modus operandi of special counsel Robert Mueller is to charge associates of President Trump with any crime he can find in order to squeeze them into turning against Trump. This is what Judge T.S. Ellis III said at a hearing Friday: “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort’s bank fraud. … What you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment.” But, as the judge correctly pointed out, it

Public intellectual Jordan Peterson believes the cultural desire to view everything in terms of the political spectrum is at its root responsible for his wildly inaccurate portrayal by many in the establishment media, he tells The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview. (snip) It’s the same thing that I’m doing with the YouTube lectures. It’s focused at the level of the individual, which is, I think, the right level of analysis. So, it’s not the postmodern Neo-Marxist political level of analysis, because I’m not interested, fundamentally, in people as groups: political, ethnic, racial—I don’t care. I understand that that’s a level of

Democrats, the mainstream media, and left-wing reporters are twisting President Trump’s words in calling MS-13 illegal alien gang members “animals.” During a roundtable discussion of California’s sanctuary state laws, Fresno Sheriff Margaret Mims mentioned to Trump the difficulty of working with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to notify them of an illegal alien MS-13 gang member. In response, Trump called the MS-13 gang members “animals,” as he’s done in the past.

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller

Wednesday on Bloomberg, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said the government should “start talking about” regulating pay disparities between CEOs and the average worker. Ellison said, “As you know, under the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act, it became required that the publicly traded companies would have to report the ratio between CEO pay and the median worker. It took about five years or more for the Securities Exchange Commission to create a rule. They finally did so now we have a data set of about 225 public the traded companies. We find that CEOs are paid an exorbitant amount of money’s compared workers.

A recently engaged couple from Florida were kidnapped at gunpoint, robbed and severely beaten on a trip to Mexico when they were supposed to be looking at wedding venues. Frank and Jennifer Massabki said they were lucky to survive and are still reeling from the terrifying ordeal in Mexico City in May last year. Jennifer, who was almost raped by one of their attackers, suffered a broken nose in the ordeal and had to undergo emergency surgery in a US hospital days later. Horrifying photos show them sitting at a police station in their blood-soaked clothes soon after they managed to escape.

Top Trump administration officials and Republican lawmakers offered heartfelt tributes to John McCain Tuesday night at the International Republican Institute’s annual freedom dinner, striking a marked contrast to the continued controversy facing the White House over its handling of a crude closed-door joke about the Arizona senator. “Tonight, there is a man standing here right beside me, and you and I can see him in our mind’s eye,” said Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, one of the Freedom Award recipients. “He’s a giant, in my mind, of American public life.

Democrats in Iowa, like Democrats everywhere, have gone around the bend. Last Thursday, Tom Steyer, a leftist hypocrite of epic proportions, headlined a town hall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A woman in the audience said that she couldn’t see any difference between President Trump and Adolf Hitler.

A family-of-five say they have never been happier after selling their five-bedroom house and everything in it - in order to move into a 180sq ft trailer. Renovator Dino Petrone, 36, blogger Ashley, 32 and sons Gabe, 8, Gavin, 7 and daughter Quinn, 4, from Ventura County, had what many would consider an ´ordinary´ life in California. However when the family stumbled across a piece of land they described as ´perfect´, they decided to downsize in order to make it their own, swapping their family home for the $8,000 (£5,900) trailer, which they´ve turned into a luxurious abode to rival

Free Markets: Big businesses in Seattle face a substantial new tax to build more affordable housing. This is after the city thwarted private developers who were building affordable housing on their own dime. Only to government officials could this make any sense. This week, the city council unanimously passed a "head tax" of $275 per full-time worker on any company in the city that makes more than $20 million in gross revenues. The city says the $48 million in new taxes will go toward affordable housing and providing emergency services for the city´s swelling homeless population. Major employers like Amazon.com
