Dershowitz: Next Democratic president will be impeached

image from mediadc.brightspotcdn.comLaw scholar Alan Dershowitz predicted the next Democrat elected president of the United States will be impeached as a result of the same "open-ended" criteria the party is currently using to impeach President Trump.

"They have created open-ended criteria which bear no relationship to the word of the Constitution itself," Dershowitz said Sunday on Fox News. "If President Trump is impeached, it will set a terrible precedent, which will weaponize impeachment, and the next Democrat who gets elected will be impeached."

Dershowitz, who has been critical of Trump in the past and says he voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, has spent recent months criticizing the impeachment push led by House Democrats.

DEA Releases New Drug Overdose Death Figures: Guns Safer than Prescription Drugs.

I ran this in 2015..... Legal drugs kill more people than guns - but the war on the second amendment rages on!

DEA Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg today announced results from the 2015 National Drug Threat Assessment (NDTA), which found that drug overdose deaths are the leading cause of injury death in the United States, ahead of deaths from motor vehicle accidents and firearms. In 2013, more than 46,000 people in the United States died from a drug overdose and more than half of those were caused by prescription painkillers and heroin.
These are 2013 numbers, so let’s compare to other causes of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

deaths1

A drug overdose, with a death rate of 13.9 per 100,000, is almost four times as common as a cause of death than gun homicides (3.6 per 100,000). Death from prescription drugs (7.2 per 100,000) is twice as common as gun homicides.

Those are the total numbers. If you prefer your stats in the often used format of x per 100,000, here you go:

Obviously, homicides aren’t exactly a leading cause of death in the US, and gun homicides, even less so. Accidental death by firearms (0.2 per 100,000) is a small blip.

deaths2

For all those concerned parents who think little Johnny is likely to get gunned down on the street would be better advised to keep tabs on their prescription painkillers, as Johnny is far more likely to die from popping those than from any gun in your house or in the hands of a school mate.

And, of course, one is almost three times as likely to die in an auto accident (death rate of 10.7 per 100,000) than as a result of a homicide.

Yesterday marks 78 years since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Several American ships were destroyed on that day “which will live in infamy” on December 7, 1941.

Listen to President Roosevelt’s complete “Infamy Speech” here

 

 

 

The USS Arizona still remains sunken along with the remains of some of its crew members.

According to the US census, 2,403 Americans were killed in the attack.

1,178 more were wounded.

Trump’s supposed abuses pale in comparison to past presidents

image from thenypost.files.wordpress.comDemocrats on the House Judiciary Committee this week trotted out a trio of supposedly dispassionate legal experts to explain why the impeachment of President Trump was justified.

But however smart scholars such as Michael Gerhardt, distinguished professor of constitutional law at University of North Carolina, might be, they aren’t above peddling partisan absurdities. Once Gerhardt argued that Trump’s behavior was “worse than the misconduct of any prior president,” we no longer had any obligation to take him seriously on the topic.

History began before 2016, and there are at least a dozen instances of presidential misconduct that are both morally and constitutionally “worse” than Trump’s blundering attempt to launch a self-serving Ukrainian investigation into his rival’s shady son.

Let’s ignore for a moment that American presidents have owned their fellow human beings and focus instead on the fact that in 1942, the president of the United States signed an executive order to unilaterally intern some 120,000 Japanese-Americans. Not only was the policy racist, it amounted to a full-bore attack on about half the Constitution he had sworn to uphold.

Woodrow Wilson — who regularly said things like, “a negro’s place is in the corn field” — re-segregated the civil service, personally firing more than a dozen supervisors for the sin of being black. He also threw dissenters and political adversaries into prison, instructed the postmaster to refuse delivery of literature he deemed unpatriotic and created an unconstitutional civilian police force that targeted Americans for political dissent. All of what Wilson did was “worse.”

The Myths of the Bible: Vegetarianism is God's Diet

By Bob Barney

The Plain Truth

1Over the years that I have spent studying the words of God, which we find in the Bible, I have come to see many ideas that scholars believe about the Bible that just simply aren't true. The Rapture, for example is one of them. There is not a single reference in the Bible that shows people are raptured before the great tribulation, the Bible is clear that we all rise from the dead when Jesus returns, not one second before. The same mistaken dogma lead most people in believing that we either go to heaven or hell when we die. Not true. We all die; Christian and sinner alike go to the grave UNTIL Christ returns. A subject that everyone universally believes is that there was no death in the garden of Eden. They love the quote 1 Corinthians 15:21 (For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. KJV).

Many Christians believe that all the animals in Eden were vegetarians, and there was no death . Believe it or not,  the meaning of this Bible verse only applies to humans, not animals. Before I go to Bible verses lets examine some flaws in the idea that there was no death of animals in Eden. If rats and mice had no natural enemies, how were their populations controlled. Of misquotes, lice, ticks and fleas? I mean we see well today with man's misguided laws banning hunting in America, we have seen an explosion of the deer population, along with the ticks they carry, many of which cause untold human misery and death. Lyme disease (in 19 forms) is a killer.

You may reply, “God controlled their populations, and they did not bare offspring, more than  two per couple.” Sounds like a Communist Chinese population control scheme destined to fail, but the Bible clearly states that God said to all animals, “Be fruitful and multiply,” and to reproduce “after their own kind,” which gives us a logistical problem. Oops. We understand the words “fruitful” and “multiply.” It means two made Four that made 8 that made 240 and so on! With no death, we have a bunch of rats eating the corn! If there were one of every species of animal in Eden, there would be at least 12-15 million pairs of animals. If each healthy, adult pair had an average of just one offspring per year, there would be at least several billion offspring after just 12 years! And in 50 years, there would be over 30 trillion! And in 1000 years.......... You get the idea. So, did Adam have to fail, in order to bring reproduction to a halt in just a few years? I think not. Even if we factor in war, death, disease, abortion, and accidents, we humans have been able to produce some 6 billion people in less than 6,000 years.

The physiology of humans and animals have not changed since creation. If wolves were to eat Straw, as some believe ( and yes there is a quote that the lion will eat straw) why did God give them teeth to rip into flesh. Also, why are some animals (including humans) have both carnivouous teeth and herbivore molars – thus making them omnivores? Did God plan for Adam to sin, and thus just played a game with the first couple, knowing they had to sin? I think not. The teeth do not lie. The digestion systems of meat eating lions, and grass eating cows are plain. God intended these animals to live a life to match their teeth, their guts and their instincts.

On a side note, one the most people do not realize, Adam and Eve's time in the garden was very short.  We know this because God also commanded that they be "fruitful, and multiply."   I have read some 'scholars' make the claim that Adam and Eve could have been in the garden for years before the fall.  That cannot be true.  God made Eve into a baby factory.  She was probably the most fertile of all women, because she was made perfect, in order to bare children.   Realizing this, we see that the time in the garden could not have been more than 9 months, as she bore her first child after being thrown out of garden!  Some early apocryphal books claim the time spent in the garden was merely a week!  That makes sense to me.  So they may not have consumed meat in that time, although they were permitted to.  

This leads us to the possibly that the death that Adam brought to the world was HUMAN DEATH, not animal death, and that is exactly what Paul meant. This is not new. Catholic Saint Thomas Aquinas disagreed with those who hold that in Paradise animals were all tame and herbivorous and he notes that only human nature changed as a result of human sin and not the nature of animals. Thus there were carnivorous animals on the earth and brought into the Garden of Eden to see what Adam would name them. He writes:

“In the opinion of some, those animals which now are fierce and kill others, would, in that state, have been tame, not only in regard to man, but also in regard to other animals. But this is quite unreasonable. For the nature of animals was not changed by man's sin, as if those whose nature now it is to devour the flesh of others, would then have lived on herbs, as the lion and falcon.b Nor does Bede's gloss on Genesis 1:30, say that trees and herbs were given as food to all animals and birds, but to some. Thus there would have been a natural antipathy between some animals [Summa Theologiae I:96:1 ad 2]. 

Aquinas held that it was not all death that entered the world through man's sin, but human death. In his view, animals could and did kill and eat each other before the Fall. I believe he was right. Note that he spoke in terms of human death and resurrection--of death and resurrection coming to those who are "in Adam" and "in Christ" ("For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive"). The Christian faith does not envision animals fitting those descriptions.

The Apostle Paul also seems to be speaking of human death entering the world.

The same is true of the parallel passage in Romans: “Therefore as sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all men sinned” [Rom. 5:12].

Church of Christ's fishermen Apostles is found

Archaeologists in Israel's Galilee have discovered the remains of an ancient structure now said to be the Church of the Apostles – a long-debated biblical site built atop the homes of the apostles Peter and Andrew.

While mentions of the church can be found in Christian text dating as far back as the year 725 AD, there has been no confirmation of its existence, leading some to doubt that it was ever real.

Now, a team from Kinneret College in Israel and Nyack College's Center for the Study of Ancient Judaism and Christian Origins has found what could be the first physical evidence at the site of el-Araj, in Beit Habek near the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee.

Excavations this summer have turned up ornate mosaic floors, gilded remnants of a wall mosaic, and the fragments of a marble chancel screen that was once adorned with a wreath.

Archaeologists in Israel's Galilee have discovered the remains of an ancient structure now said to be the Church of the Apostles ¿ a long-debated biblical site built atop the homes of the apostles Peter and Andrew. The Byzantine church was found near remnants of a Roman-era settlement, matching the location of Bethsaida

Mordechai Aviam of Kinneret Academic College, on the shore of the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel, said this season's dig at nearby El-Araj confirmed it as the site of Bethsaida, a fishing village where Peter and his brother Andrew were born according to the Gospel of John.

ROME — Pope Francis has compared U.S. President Donald Trump to the murderous King Herod who massacred innocent children in ancient Palestine while trying to kill the baby Jesus, a Jesuit journal revealed Thursday.

Speaking with his brother Jesuits during his recent visit to Thailand, the Argentinian pope minced no words in his thinly veiled condemnation of the U.S. president and his administration, suggesting that like a modern-day Herod, Mr. Trump separates families at the border while allowing drugs to freely flow into the country.

A Look At Jeffrey Epstein’s Ties To Democrats

Repeating a Plain Truth Story from July....

Some in the media are trying to make the Jeffrey Epstein scandal all about President Donald Trump, but it turns out high profile Democratic politicians and Hollywood stars were friends with Epstein too.

The Daily Caller’s Stephanie Hamill takes a closer look at his ties to high profile Democrats and celebrities. (RELATED: George Stephanopoulos Says It Was A Mistake To Dine With Epstein After His First Stint In Jail.) 

Epstein was charged with one count of sex trafficking and one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking earlier this month.

The real Mt. Sinai is in Saudi Arabia! - Update on 9 year old Plain Truth Story

UPDATE: The Real Mt Sinai a'JEWISH PLOT'??????

short film featuring evidence that the biblical Mount Sinai is in Saudi Arabia has surpassed 1.3 million views, and among the viewers are members of radical Islamic groups that believe the movie is part of a sinister American and Jewish plot to take over the area.

As WND reported in December, the film produced by national security analyst Ryan Mauro takes viewers into a highly restricted zone in the Islamic kingdom with an abundance of features that fit the biblical description of the place where the Ten Commandments were given after the Israelites fled captivity in Egypt.

In a newly released video blog, Mauro says there have been two common responses to “Finding the Mountain of Moses: The Real Mount Sinai in Saudi Arabia” among propaganda outlets linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Iranian regime, Houthi rebels and others.

Some say the film is true, but it’s part of a Jewish conspiracy with the United States to seize Mount Sinai and conquer Saudi Arabia.

The following story was originally published: 4/4/2010

This is not news to us, but may be to most out there. The Bible clearly states that Sinai was in Midian (Arabia) and Paul says that Mt Sinai is in Arabia.  Most of the so-called Biblical sites recognized today are lies: Editor

 

Behind the protection of Saudi Arabia's military in the Islamic nation's remote desert sands, evidence about one of the Bible's mysteries lay hidden, until two explorers decided to investigate it themselves, and the results of that adventure, "The Search for the Real Mt. Sinai," a DVD from Exploration Films, is the top seller at the WND Superstore this week.

The story of the adventurers' pursuit of information about the location of the biblical events that took place at Mt. Sinai isn't for the faint of heart: Forbidden military installations, night vision goggles to see without being seen, the heat of the desert and the threat of the kingdom's Islamic law all play a role in this documentation of the real Mt. Sinai, the holy mountain on which Moses was given the Ten Commandments.

This program tells the amazing story of their travels in pursuit of evidence that confirms the Bible as historically accurate.   MORE PLUS VIDEO>>>>>>>>>>>>


CHARLIE DANIELS WARNS ABOUT 'ESTABLISHMENT PHARISEES'

Country music superstar Charlie Daniels is comparing today’s political power structure in Washington to the Pharisees of biblical times.  

But he’s warning their agenda – right now to attack President Trump because he’s an outsider and is disrupting their plans – won’t stop there.

In fact, he’s warning that average “rank-and-file” Americans soon will be facing “dangerous precedents” because of the establishment war against the president.

He posts his opinions on the Soap Box page of his band’s website.

In a new commentary he said American needs to think of the “establishment politicians” as Pharisees, who, “regardless of what party is in power – and they are nearly interchangeable, by the way – have had their way in this country for a century or more.”
