Sunday wakeup call from prominent religious leader

January 15, 2017

Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s dominant religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.

He added, the number of Eastern Europeans arriving over the past few years has also hit the quality of life for native Italians, “We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,” the archbishop said. “We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.”

“We have a weak Christian faith,” he stated. “The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty. Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.”

Regardless of your religion, this Breitbart report is a wake-up call.

The Gatestone Institute has been covering Europe‘s migrant crisis. These are just some of the articles and videos that address the growing problem.


Rev. Franklin Graham sparks controversy for saying “God showed up”

December 30, 2016

Graham one of six offering readings and words of prayer at Trump’s swearing-in ceremony

 Leave it to the left-wing media to label Rev. Franklin Graham “controversial.” Graham, the son of renown preacher Rev. Billy Graham, is among several religious leaders slated to give  readings and benedictions at President-elect Donald Trump’s Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration. Franklin Graham previously gave the invocation for George W. Bush.

An early Trump supporter, Graham endorsed his candidacy in 2011. Since the election, Graham has appeared at many of Trump’s national “Thank You” rallies.

 “Many thought the Trump/Pence ticket didn’t have a chance. None of them understand the God-factor,” Evangelist Franklin Graham told the crowd in Mobile, Alabama.

“I don’t have any scientific information. I don’t have a stack of emails to read to you. But I have an opinion. I believe it was God. God showed up. He answered the prayers of hundreds of thousands of people across this land who had been praying for this country,” the Washington Examiner reports.

Franklin Graham is no longer a Republican, having left the GOP last year due to his disapproval of Congressional Republicans joining Democrats on the passage of the massive 2,000 page, $1.8 trillion omnibus tax and spending bill that continues to fund abortion provider Planned Parenthood. The bill was praised by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate President Mitch McConnell and quickly signed by Obama, who met little resistance. Planned Parenthood’s officials were caught on tape haggling over the price in the sale of fetal body parts. One abortionist laughingly stated she needed enough to buy herself a Lamborghini sports car.

Joining Rev. Franklin Graham at Trump’s presidential inauguration ceremonies will be other religious leaders, who are named in this Press Release from the Presidential Inaugural Committee.


Kerry, still lying, carries Obama’s water in parting shot to Israel

December 29, 2016

John Kerry foolishly states, “Israel can either be Jewish or Democratic”

After watching the shocked reaction to Secretary of State John Kerry’s betrayal of Israel on the news throughout the day Wednesday, it’s important to take a breather and remember who John Kerry is. The former U.S. Senator and 2004 Democrat nominee is a traitor. Here he is in 1971, spewing lies to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, as he betrayed our brave men and women in uniform fighting in Vietnam in order to advance himself. He joined with the notorious Jane Fonda giving aid and comfort to the Communists killing and maiming Americans.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denounced Kerry after his excessively long (hour and 13 minutes) speech rightly stating Israelis do not need to be lectured about the importance of peace by foreign leaders. Netanyahu was able to get his point across in just nine minutes.

Kerry neglected to mention that the Palestinian Authority pays a salary to those who kill Jews. He didn’t acknowledge that Arabs have been members of the Knesset (legislative body) since Israel’s first elections in 1949. He apparently forgot that Israel, the sole Democracy in the Middle East,  protects the holy sites of Christians, Muslims and Jews. Most importantly for the Israelis, the Palestinians have steadfastly refused to acknowledged Israel’s right to exist. As the Obama administration calls on Israel to make concessions, the same demands are not made on the Palestinians. How does one negotiate with those who have repeatedly stated their aim is Israel’s annihilation?

“Whole countries in the Middle East are collapsing, terror is everywhere and for an entire hour the Secretary of State of the United States talks only about the only democracy in the Middle East, a democracy that is one of the only stable places in the entire Middle East,” Netanyahu said.

“We are now celebrating Christmas,” the Israeli PM said. “Maybe Secretary of State John Kerry didn’t see that Israel is the only place in the Middle East where Christians can celebrate Christmas in security and peace and happiness. Unfortunately, that doesn’t interest the president of the United States,” Netanyhau added.

“If the U.S. administration would have taken the same energies that they put in condemning Israel in stopping the Palestinian terror, maybe they would have helped the peace process more,” Netanyahu said.

The Prime Minister unequivocally stated, “We have it on absolute, incontestable evidence that the United States organized, advanced and brought this resolution to the United Nations Security Council.  We will share that information with the incoming administration.”

Watch as David Keyes, spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also maintains that Israel has “ironclad” proof that the Obama administration was behind the anti-Israel U.N. resolution, which deceptively calls areas such as Jerusalem and the Western Wall “occupied Palestinian territory.”

We decided to add this instructive composite picture showing how Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu spent their 20s. Not much has changed.

Obamas & Trumps celebrate Christmas Eve differently

December 26, 2016

A study in contrasts

While President-elect Donald Trump and his wife Melania sought to remember the birth of the Christ Child in church on Christmas Eve, the Obama family engaged in an hour-long live action “escape room” game with their entourage at a resort in Waikiki. The fawning press gleefully reported that they “won with just 12 seconds to spare.” Afterward they went out for shaved ice treats.

When the Trumps entered the sanctuary of the Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida, the congregation stood and broke into a round of spontaneous applause. (video). They knew that what they were witnessing hadn’t been seen for eight years.
