Turkey’s War on Christian Missionaries

by Uzay Bulut

{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ The day after American pastor Andrew Brunson was released from Turkish prison, another Christian who had been living for nearly two decades in the country was detained by Turkish authorities… and told that he had two weeks to leave the country — without his wife and three children. The American-Canadian evangelist, David Byle, not only suffered several detentions and interrogations over the years, but he had been targeted for deportation on three occasions. Each time, he was saved by court rulings. This time, however, he was unable to prevent banishment, and left the country after two days in a detention center. When he tried to return to his family in Turkey on November 20, he was denied re-entry. According to Claire Evans, regional manager of the organization International Christian Concern: “Turkey is making it increasingly clear that there is no room for Christianity, even though the constitution states otherwise. It is no coincidence that Turkey decided to initiate this process the day after Brunson’s release from prison and that, in doing so, the authorities ignored a court order. We must keep the Byle family in our prayers during this period of difficult separation.” Brunson and Byle are among many Christian clerics who have fallen victim to Turkey’s aversion to Christianity. In its annual Human Rights Violations Reports, published since 2009, Turkey’s Association of Protestant Churches details Turkey’s systematic discrimination against Protestants, including verbal and physical attacks; nor does the Turkish government recognize the Protestant community as a “legal entity,” denying it the right to freely establish and maintain places of worship. Turkey’s Protestants cannot open their own schools or train their own clerics, forcing them to rely on support of foreign church leaders. Still, several foreign religious workers and church members have been denied entry into Turkey, refused residence permits or deported…  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/13478/turkey-christian-missionaries

Dems Prepare For Largest Expansion of Government Ever?

by Michael Bastasch

{dailycaller.com} ~ Democrats are increasingly lining up to support a “Green New Deal,” which, while vague on details… could end up being the largest expansion of government in decades. As it stands, the “Green New Deal” is more aspirational than actual policy. Indeed, it takes its name from the New Deal of the 1930s, and its main backer, incoming Democratic New York Rep. commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, compared it to the Great Society of the 1960s. More than 40 Democratic lawmakers support the “Green New Deal” as part of a broad plan to fight global warming and bring about what they see as “economic, social and racial justice.” A poll found most Americans supported the deal, but knew little about it. But the big question is when Americans find out what’s in the “Green New Deal,” will they be willing to pay for it? commie-Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” calls for creating a House committee to draft legislation to fight global warming and turn the U.S. economy into something akin to what Vermont Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders envisions. Indeed, the “Green New Deal” could be a preview of what policies the Democratic Party will back in the 2020 elections… Don’t fall for this Green New Deal America.  https://dailycaller.com/2018/12/25/democrats-green-new-deal/

Foreign leader: scumbag/liar-nObama guilty of ‘facilitating’ persecution of Christians

by wnd.com

{wnd.com} ~ The former president of Nigeria, a Christian, is charging in his new book that President scumbag/liar-nObama was involved in “facilitating” the persecution of Christians by prodding voters there to adopt a Muslim-led government… The Muslim, Muhammadu Buhari, was, in fact, elected, and he is being blamed for allowing “the persecution of Christians,” reports Breaking Israel News. Goodluck Jonathan was Nigeria’s president from 2010-2015, and writes in his new book, “My Transition Hours,” that, “On March 23, 2015, President scumbag/liar-nObama himself took the unusual step of releasing a video message directly to Nigerians all but telling them how to vote … In that video, scumbag/liar-nObama urged Nigerians to open the ‘next chapter’ by their votes. Those who understood subliminal language deciphered that he was prodding the electorate to vote for the Muslim-led opposition to form a new government.” BIN reported that ABC had the context, from a 2011 report. That said, “The current wave of Muslim riots was triggered by the Independent National Election Commission’s (INEC) announcement on Monday April 18, 2011 that the incumbent President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, won in the initial round of ballot counts. That there were riots in the largely Muslim inhabited northern states where the defeat of the Muslim candidate Muhammadu Buhari was intolerable, was unsurprising. Northerners Muslims felt they were entitled to the presidency for the declared winner, President Jonathan, who assumed leadership after the Muslim president, Umaru Yar’Adua died in office last year and radical groups in the north Boko Haram had seen his Jonathan’s ascent as a temporary matter to be corrected at this year’s election. Now they are angry despite experts and observers concurring that this is the fairest and most independent election in recent Nigerian history.” Raymond Ibrahim reported in BIN, “That the scumbag/liar-nObama administration may have imposed its will on a foreign country’s politics and elections is hardly unprecedented. Recall the administration’s partiality for the Muslim Brotherhood during and after 2012 presidential elections in Egypt; or its unsuccessful efforts to oust Israeli prime minister Netanyahu with U.S. taxpayers’ money; or its efforts – with an admittedly unverified ‘dossier’ … to prevent then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump from being elected, or by discussing an ‘insurance policy’ in the event that Trump won.”… https://www.wnd.com/2018/12/foreign-leader-obama-guilty-of-facilitating-persecution-of-christians/

Nebraska medical facility says it’s monitoring American possibly exposed to Ebola

by Elizabeth Zwirz

{foxnews.com} ~ An American who may have been exposed to the lethal disease Ebola while in the Democratic Republic of Congo arrived in Nebraska to be monitored, the medical facility revealed Saturday… The unidentified individual had been in the country offering medical assistance at the time exposure may have occurred, according to a news release from Nebraska Medicine. At this point, the person has not demonstrated any symptoms of the virus, but he or she “will be monitored closely,” the facility said. If indications of Ebola are seen, the individual will be admitted and the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit will be activated. “This person may have been exposed to the virus but is not ill and is not contagious,” said Ted Cieslak MD, an infectious diseases specialist with Nebraska Medicine. “Should any symptoms develop, the Nebraska Medicine/UNMC team is among the most qualified in the world to deal with them.” Observation of the individual could last as long as two weeks and is being done in a location that neither the public nor patients can access, the facility said… https://www.foxnews.com/health/nebraska-medical-facility-says-its-monitoring-american-possibly-exposed-to-ebola?fbclid=IwAR1UXYXAAQ2WDpGSOtKnef5H8g2x2dT5jeo7QMMLlB5DUWdH-qGBK9RSOms

Baltimore Mayor Fund-Raises Off Lie That NRA Supports Ownership Of Rocket Launchers

by Joe Newby And Jeff Dunetz

{lidblog.com} ~ On Thursday, Baltimore Mayor Catherine Phew Pugh — a Democrat — falsely claimed on Twitter that the National Rifle Association (NRA) actually supports the private ownership of rocket launchers… The Baltimore Police Department’s latest gun buyback program — which is intended to reduce the number of unregistered weapons on the city’s streets — turned up a rocket launcher. An actual rocket launcher. Guidelines for the buyback included $25 for high-capacity magazines, $100 for revolvers and bolt-action or pump-action weapons, and $200 for semi-automatic weapons, according to the Baltimore Sun. The city also offered $500 for fully automatic weapons. The rocket launcher reportedly fetched $500, though it wasn’t fully automatic. Mayor Phew Pugh will do anything she can, to slander the NRA and its 5,000,000 law-abiding gun owners. If Phew can’t be trusted to be honest about law-abiding Americans, then how can she be believed about anything? Baltimore voters should realize that their mayor is a LIAR… https://{/mayor-catherine-pugh/

Doctor Makes Shocking Ginsberg Diagnosis

by Brian Joondeph

{dailycaller.com} ~ Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in the news again. Not for a controversial judicial opinion, but for her ongoing health issues. Last week, Ginsburg had surgery to remove a lobe of her lung as two suspicious lung nodules were found following her recent fall.

Last month, she fell, fracturing three ribs. Presumably, the lung nodules were found by x-ray after her fall. Further imaging likely caused her doctors to recommend removing the nodules.

Interestingly, a week ago, she told a group of admirers, “My health is fine.” Perhaps the scumbag/liar-Clinton appointed justice is borrowing a page from scumbag/liar-Bill Clinton, parsing the meaning of “health” and “fine”.

Her surgeon last week removed two malignant nodules. Were they primary lung cancer or metastases from one of her previous cancers?

She had colon cancer in 1999 and pancreatic cancer in 2009, both of which are known to spread to the lungs. The lungs are a common site for metastatic cancer as the entire blood supply flows through the lungs, carrying cancer cells from distant parts of the body.

If these nodules were not metastatic, then she would have primary lung cancer. While possible, having three different types of cancer is unusual. Ginsburg was not a smoker, which makes lung cancer less likely. Occam’s Razor suggests metastatic cancer.

Her lung nodules will be examined microscopically to determine the type of and origin of the malignancy. Until that news is announced, we can only speculate.

If her cancer is indeed metastatic, it is considered to be stage IV, with the worst prognosis. For stage IV colon cancer, the five-year survival is 15 percent. For pancreatic cancer, the five-year survival for stage IV disease is much worse at only 3 percent.

Justice Ginsburg’s fall was fortuitous in that her lung nodules were diagnosed early. While they would eventually be found, they may have grown to the point where surgery was no longer possible.

Why did she fall? Falls are common in the elderly and are a leading cause of injury and death in that age group. Cancer occasionally spreads to the brain, affecting balance, but presumably, her doctors checked for this after her fall. Cardiac issues also cause lightheadedness and falls. Ginsburg had a cardiac stent placed in 2014.

As an 85-year-old, she has had her share of health issues and I wish her and her family well in her recovery. She exercises regularly and her dedication to fitness is commendable and contributory to her ability to bounce back after a succession of major medical issues.

The RBG Workout has been published as a book, another fitness fad. A young Politico writer tried the workout and said, “It nearly broke me.” That’s the unfortunate state of fitness in America when a millennial male can’t keep up with a frail 85-year-old woman in the gym.

What’s next for Justice Ginsburg? She first has to recover from her thoracic surgery and partial lung removal. That alone is no small feat in someone her age. She is at risk for bleeding, infection, respiratory issues, all on top of three broken ribs.

Based on the cancer found in her lungs, further chemotherapy and/or radiation may be needed. As her medical challenges mount, her ability to serve on the nation’s highest court comes into question. Reportedly, she is already back up and working from her hospital bed.

As Justice Ginsburg’s retirement may be sooner rather than later based on her health, President Trump may soon have another court nominee. This time it won’t be a replacement for moderate swing-vote Justice Anthony Kennedy but instead for one of the court’s quintessential liberals.

Expect fireworks far beyond what we saw in the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. People are already stepping up to donate their lungs to Ginsburg, sacrificing their lives in the pursuit of liberal judicial activism.

In the meantime, let’s wish Justice Ginsburg a speedy recovery but be sure to get a good seat for the circus when she eventually retires.
