NORTH KOREA: North Korea sends very threatening message. By fax.
Krauthammer: A nation finally wakes up to the true radicalism of ObamaCare and the deception behind its passage – Not even sure what he means here. This writer seems to recall crowds of Americans massed around the House of Representatives, urging, begging the House in 2010 to NOT PASS OBAMACARE.
Krauthammer is just rubbing people’s noses in ObamaCare here–which is his suspected intent.
Report: 20 cases of child human trafficking investigated in Kentucky in four month period“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”

EXCLUSIVE – ‘Hung out to dry': Duck Dynasty star and family hit out at A&E for letting his controversial interview go public and for suspending him for homophobic comments – Bizarre headline. Family is upset at A&E about Phil Robertson’s interview?!?
The Duck Dynasty media blizzard is one of those non-events beloved by our Corporate Media. As it is not very important–except to Phil Robertson’s and A&E’s bottom line–in a very short while, everyone will have forgotten about many of the specifics.
Oh yeah. Did anyone mention that Phil Robertson just happens to have a new book coming out? What a coincidence!
Duck Dynasty: A&E, Cracker Barrel Cave – The question to all Christians who exalt Duck Dynasty: Is DD furthering the gospel of Jesus Christ? It’s understood that some good feeling accrue to DD due to the “Any port in a storm” theory–and there’s some merit in that. But there’s a problem with using TV shows as substitutionary morality.
After the Robertson family announced publicly that it would be unthinkable for them to continue with the top rated show without their patriarch Phil Robertson, the suits at A&E and Disney, who owns them seem to have had a change of heart…especially after feeling the heat from their viewers, ( a ‘boycott A&E’ Facebook page received over 1.5 million likes in a matter of a couple of days) and very likely after consulting with their lawyers about what their violation of Robertson’s civil and First Amendment rights was likely to cost them in court.
Since when is it a “violation of Robertson’s civil and First Amendment rights” to appear on an A&E TV show? In short, it isn’t. Americans are not guaranteed a right to appear on TV. Phil Robertson was perfectly within his rights to say anything he wished in a media interview. A&E was perfectly within their rights to decide if what Robertson said met the needs of their TV property on which Robertson appears.
This is just ignorance of the American government and/or judicial system. But this is what 2013 America is about: ignorance. Oh, and holding up the objects or people of this world as worthy of our extravagant respect or admiration or devotion.
Which just happens to be one of the definitions of “worship.”
So no, no one violated any of Phil Robertson’s “rights.”
Unless of course, A&E put a gun to Robertson’s head and forced him to sign that very lucrative contract to have A&E broadcast their half-hour Duck Commander infomercial every week. Did A&E do that? If they did–and Phil Robertson appeared on the Duck Dynasty show against his will–then perhaps there is a “civil and First Amendment rights” violation at work here.
Phil Robertson’s suspension is apparently over, and he will return to the show in January.No word on whether a fifth season is in the works, but if it works out contractually and the Robertsons are no longer obligated to A&E, don’t be surprised if Duck Dynasty appears on a different outlet.
Further proof that the entire manufactured media controversy of the Duck Guy at Duck Dynasty was publicity-driven (as we wrote here: Duck Dynasty: Phil Robertson’s Duck Media Obligation). And it worked like a charm. More Americans are now aware of Duck Dynasty as a brand and a TV show. More Americans, from this point on, are now emotionally invested in what the Duck Guys say on moral issues.
It will be useful to remember this in the future.
And in the end, did the entire media frenzy benefit both Phil Robertson and Disney?
Why, I believe it did.
Corsi: Time to Duck Dynasty Barack Obama out of the White House – Even (especially?!?) the Tea Party has climbed on the DD bandwagon.
Unruly crowd causes commotion at Salvation Army toy distribution in Pittsburgh – Many Americans no longer exhibit that fruit of the Spirit called “temperance” (self-control). In fact, many Americans celebrate having no self-control.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

As you are aware, West Virginia and Ohio are implementing Obamacare via Medicaid expansion and the heavy cost will hit both States in a few years when the Federal Government reduces payments as they have done repeatedly in the past.
In light of the Obamacare disaster unfolding before our very eyes it is rather shocking that our State officials are willing to plunge the people into such huge long term debt.
West Virginia is all in with Obamacare but Ohio had some opposition to this morally offensive law. Unfortunately the Ohio Supreme Court ruled against the people and Ohio will now join West Virginia and plunge Ohioans into long term debt.
The legal argument of the case is explained below:
#2 – (h/t:G)
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life. As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper’s cemetery in the Nova Scotia back country.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn’t stop for directions.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late.
I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I’ve never played before for this homeless man.
And as I played “Amazing Grace”, the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head was hung low, my heart was full.
As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, “I never seen nothing like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.”
Hospitals Suffering From Mass Layoffs Thanks to Obamacare – Articles like this have been a feature of 2013–not just the last part of 2013. Still, hospital employment for 2013 is up(?!?) according to this report.
Doctor, Nurse Vacancies Soar Amid Obamacare Rollout – So, if hospital jobs are being cut, then how are vacancies of doctors and nurses “soaring”?
What Jesus says about homosexuality – When the world starts citing the Bible, nonsense ensues.
–1 Corinthians 2:14
Did Jesus condemn homosexuality? – Hate using WND as a source, but the article is good and to the point.
The Cowardly Lions – Another look at DD.
Is Christmas purely a pagan holiday? – Agreed: Christians should celebrate Christ’s birth. Because we don’t know the exact date is no reason not to celebrate it. However, that being said, Christians don’t have to use pagan means to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
Chaos: Severe and strange weather sweeps U.S., threatens holiday travelers – Don’t see it, but this writer is not a weather person.
