Just some stairs in a movie

By: T F Stern | Self-Educated American

This morning I was watching an old black and white movie, Here Comes Mr. Jordan, about a prizefighter, Joe Pendleton, attempting to fulfill his destiny as World Champion when he’s “mistakenly taken to Heaven before his time, and then is given a second chance back on Earth”; but that’s not what I wanted to write about.

No; but this movie had a scene set in the Farnsworth Mansion with his boxing trainer, Max “Pop” Corkle, leaving via a fancy entrance foyer with a set of marble stairs. In the movie, Joe Pendleton was temporarily ‘inhabiting’ Bruce Farnsworth’s body, getting it “in the pink” so he could continue toward becoming the World Champ in boxing; but Farnsworth got murdered which meant Joe Pendleton would have to ‘inhabit’ some other body to complete his destiny.  As mentioned, this isn’t what I wanted to write about; but some details are necessary to get there.

The marble stairs leading to the front door stirred a memory.  My mind was seeing two sets of stairs; the one in the movie and yet another, the image of a similar set of stairs from an old crime scene.  

I remember stepping over a dead man’s body from back when I was a rookie police officer dispatched to the scene of a real murder on Kirby Street in the fashionable River Oaks section of Houston.  As it turned out, that murder became quite a sensation as it involved high society.

“In 1972 (Sept. 24, 1972)  Dr. John Hill was ambushed and shot to death in his home. He was with his new wife, Connie, and his son, who were both left unharmed.”

“The story became a bestseller called Blood and Money by Thomas Thompson and later a TV movie called Murder in Texas, with Farrah Fawcett playing Joan Robinson.”

The senior police partner I rode with that evening assigned me to go to the house next door and stay with the young boy who had been taken in by neighbors upon hearing of the murder.  Just a guess on my part; but since I’d only been a police officer for about six months, he probably didn’t want me mucking up any evidence at the crime scene.

I really don’t remember much about the investigation that was taken over by the Homicide Division and eventually ended up in Criminal Court.  I do remember receiving a subpoena and going down to Records Division for a copy of the report to refresh my mind on details that I might need if I were asked to sit in the witness chair.

Turns out there was almost a book’s worth of printed police report the clerk handed me.  I really wasn’t a witness to much, if anything, that might indicate my need for being subpoenaed; but apparently, the District Attorney’s Office sent a subpoena to any officer whose name appeared in the original police report.

Watching an old movie did all that, just think what the mind is capable of remembering when it’s triggered by a simple image, a familiar fragrance or just about anything.  Isn’t life interesting…

Coptic Orthodox in Al Minya, Egypt celebrate Holy Friday over ashes

By: Dr. Ashraf Ramelah | Voice of the Copts

As the Orthodox in Egypt and around the world began their holy week last week on Sunday, April 21, Christians around the world mourned the Sri Lanka church bombing where more than three hundred Catholic Christians were killed celebrating Easter. For Copts, the explosion of bombs inside the three Sri Lanka churches brought to memory the explosion of their Two Saints Church in Alexandria, Egypt on New Year’s Eve 2011, as well as the more recent attacks on The Saint George Church in Tanta and The Saint Mena Coptic Church in Alexandria on Palm Sunday 2017.

Copts in Egypt did not escape violence in this holy season

Before the holy week ended last week in the Province of Al Minya, Egypt, Copts became victims once again of a church burning on the Orthodox Good Friday (April 26). Some time back, Islamic authorities shut down the brick-and-mortar church by bolting its doors. Recently, authorities gave permission to Christians to erect a tent in the Saint George Churchyard to celebrate the holy week of Easter. In the early morning hours prior to the arrival of parishioners and clergy, two young Muslim men set fire to the tent. 

As in many similar cases around the world, the fire department arrived late, but in this case, there was nothing left to rescue. The massive tent and its furnishings burned to the ground. The local bishop and congregation were not thwarted, however. They came to the charred remains and celebrated the Crucifixion of Christ under the open sky atop the ashes of their burnt tent, the smell of fire in the air.

Two Muslim men caught in the act remain under arrest. For Egypt, it is routine jihad.

Frequent threats against Christians may have been addressed by President Trump two weeks earlier in his meeting with Egypt’s President Al Sisi. However, in the press conference following their meeting, President Trump ignored the war of terror against Christians inside Egypt to stress his alliance and praise for the president of Egypt. Trump needs him as a vital partner in the War on Terror — the strategic battle against Islamic terrorism within the region.

Only time will tell if any conditions were given Al Sisi in their private meeting of April 19. After all, Al Sisi hopes as well to make “a quantum leap in the strategic relationship between Egypt and the United States,” stating this clearly before the press. For this very reason, the moment was ripe to seek a serious pledge from Al Sisi to protect Christians and work toward equality and religious freedom. The question remains, did Trump forsake this moment in his zeal for the War on Terror? Time will tell.

THE VATICAN DEAL: Made in China

By: Elizabeth Yore | The Remnant

THE VATICAN DEAL: Made in China         

A bad beginning makes for a bad ending.” ~Chinese Proverb

Before the ink was dry on the September 22, 2018 Vatican-China secret agreement, the Chinese government initiated its demolition derby by targeting Christian churches and their faithful. The Chinese Communist Government thugs ratcheted up a coordinated pogrom of demolishing, seizing, and closing Christian Churches. The first targets for destruction by the authorities were two Catholic Marian shrines in Shanxi and Guizhou. Government goons stripped crucifixes from church facades, and began to round up and imprison faithful underground Catholics, priests and bishops. Leave it to the Chinese to monetize their terror campaign: The government is offering cash for neighbors to spy on churches.

Some detente, Pope Francis! No wonder the details of the deal are still secret.

The three-part deal sought to clarify the manner of episcopal appointments, with the atheistic regime appointing bishops that were then approved by the Vatican, the status of the seven illegitimate bishops and the future of the faithful “underground” Catholic Church. Incredibly, the Vatican agreement with China allows the communist-controlled Chinese “Catholic” Patriotic Association (CPA) to nominate Catholic bishops and instructs the Underground Church to unite with it.

I take this woman . . .

By: Tabitha Korol


Screenshot of short movie “Submission Pt. 1” By Ayaan Hirsi & Directed By Theo van Gogh

The Internet provides everything you’d want to know about courtships, weddings, married life, but few of them include the instructions on wife-beating. There is a brief but enlightening film, produced by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and posted on Jihad Watch, of a Muslim sociologist who demonstrates the “proper” wife-beating technique.  Of course, the sociologist assures his audience that Islam is merciful, and that the man, the head of the household, should not have to beat his wife every day, and to do so lightly, never to hit her face or head, bruise, break bones or cause blood to flow (m10:12, Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law – ROTT).  But the cautionary statement rings hollow when the wife’s bruises will never be seen because she must be covered from head to toe. And, should she become inured to the discipline’s sameness, there are other means of control and punishment available to him, all sanctioned by The Religion of Peace.  

When is it necessary to beat one’s wife? The sociologist did posit that there are women who prefer domineering, authoritative, and even violent husbands. For the most part, however, beatings are needed when the wife has disobeyed him and the strict Islamic rules of marriage.  She may have refused to wear a hijab (m:2:7-8, ROTT) or the finery he chose for her; or fancied attending school with the hope of one day having a career and earning a wage. She may have wanted to leave the house unaccompanied or without her husband’s permission; she is literally under house arrest.  

The Shari’a marriage contract contains her virginity status, the dowry amount, and grants sexual intercourse rights to the male, giving him total control over his wife or wives. Should she refuse his advances, be too ill or too young to have sex, or if she engaged in sex with another man or was raped, he could stop her daily (financial) maintenance. The woman is considered a she-devil, equal to a domestic animal, harmful and with crooked character. Therefore, he may disallow her to sleep in his bed; or lock her in a room, naked, and without food. Should he choose to enact a simple divorce by repeating “I divorce you” three times – she may receive no more than three months’ maintenance and could lose her children older than age seven.

America Under Siege

Worldview Weekend Host Brannon Howse Interviews SCS Co-Founder David Bores

Why are police and sheriff departments increasingly afraid to have their officers and deputies trained in the truth about Islam?

Why are we apparently in a period of pause in terrorist attacks here in America? How does the occasional terrorist attack benefit the Muslim Brotherhood in its infiltration of our local and state governments as well as federal government?

A few years ago, France had closed down between 100 and 160 mosques in which military grade weapons were found. Why would mosques have such weapons and can one expect that this is a practice in America?

How many Islamic training camps are there in America? Should Americans be concerned about terrorist attacks on American schools?

Are Democrats Pushing Sharia Law?

By: Lloyd Marcus

A fan thought I exaggerated when I wrote that Sharia law will spread like wildfire across America if Democrats win the White House. She feared my over-the-top statement about the spread of Islam will damage my credibility.

My statement is not an exaggeration. For crying out loud, the federal government illegally funded a national curriculum titled “Access Islam.” This indoctrination program outrageously teaches students how to become Muslim — how to pray as a Muslim, how to perform Islamic “daily worship,” and how to perform the “core duties” of being a Muslim.

A California school banned all Christian-based books from its library, including books by Christian authors. Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Hermsmeyer says they do not allow “sectarian materials” on their state-authorized lending shelves. Public schools are celebrating Islam while banning Christmas.

Al Sisi’s Presidential Ambitions Conflict With Egypt’s Constitution

By: Dr. Ashraf Ramelah | Voice of the Copts

By virtue of its own authority every dictatorial power — whether of the military, religious or national — creates for the country a vital, intellectual space or atmosphere where propaganda can flourish. This is the means to enact authoritarian projects for the purpose of tightening a grip on society and to justify repressive actions. One such project is Al Sisi’s future presidential ambitions.

Past Egyptian regimes (as well as the present one) self-promote through public boasting and seek praise for their achievements by deluding the public. One case in point is Al Sisi’s Suez Canal mega-project. Egyptians are still waiting to see its benefits. For the regime to control the narrative, it will pre-empt the opposition in staged “democratic” debates on TV forums. The actors, host, and guests, are well-versed in satisfying the regime’s desired outcomes.

An army of writers, journalists, and broadcasters – servants of the regime — are always ready to serve the next authoritarian project when it comes along. Today’s mission of the Egyptian regime is to convince the public that President Al Sisi, who is in the middle of his second and final four-year term, needs more time in office than the current constitution allows. Al Sisi must continue. He has made promises to the people he needs to fulfill.

The Vatican, KINO And Our Southern Border Incursions

By: Denise Simon | Founders Codes

Primer: Callista Gingrich is the U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican. Given the crisis at our southern border and the relationship Newt has with the Trump White House, imagine the conversations regarding the Pope’s constant call for no walls and global Catholic charities working against U.S. law enforcement. Yikes… and it seems the Catholic Church in the United States has no use for Callista, Newt, or President Trump. If you need some proof on that, click here.

The other part of the Primer:

President Obama’s Executive Action: In November, the Jesuits of the United States, Jesuit Refugee Services/USA, and the Kino Border Initiative issued a statement welcoming President Obama’s executive action to end the legislative gridlock and place pressure on Congress to make immigration reform a priority. The President’s order will provide temporary stays of deportation to as many as five million undocumented migrants who live in fear of discovery and separation from their families, but there are another 6 million undocumented immigrants whose situations are unaddressed by the order. To read the complete statement from the Jesuits of the United States, JRS/USA, and the KBI, please see http://www.jesuit.org/news-detail?TN=NEWS-20141121032132.
