Hate Crime Hoax, Air Force Edition
by Nate Jackson:  The U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School has been investigating a supposedly racist incident that happened in September and discovered it was a hoax. The Washington Times reports, “In September, racial slurs were found written on the dormitory message boards of five black cadet candidates at the prep school in Colorado Springs, sparking an investigation. The incident prompted a fiery speech by the school’s superintendent, Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria, who said cadets who can’t treat others with respect should leave.”

          Well, one of the black cadets who was allegedly targeted confessed to writing the slurs himself. That cadet is no longer a student at the school.
          Silveria didn’t back down from his condemnation, however, insisting, “Regardless of the circumstances under which those words were written, they were written, and that deserved to be addressed. You can never over-emphasize the need for a culture of dignity and respect — and those who don’t understand those concepts, aren’t welcome here.
          Hate crime hoaxes are nothing new. Whether it’s as small as racist messages at various schools or a black man burning down a black church after scribbling “Vote Trump” on the side, there are some who wish to create more grievances for political gain. Ironically, this undermines their own case. Just as watering down language regarding sexual assault undermines legitimate allegations of violence, so do hate crime hoaxes undercut any real incidents of racism, few though they may be.
          Meanwhile, the Air Force would better solve this problem by rising above the political correctness message leftists keep pushing and refocusing on the deeper significance of their oaths.  ~The Patriot Pos

Will GOP Stick With Moore Or Switch Horses 
As Dems Drop Last Minute Sexual Smear Again
{rickwells.us} ~ We’ve seen this same production played out before, when Donald Trump was running for President... The Democrats at that time brought out a parade of women, supposedly from his distant past, who had never had the “courage” to admit what had happened so long ago but somehow all suddenly felt compelled to do so as the race was winding down. But these accounts in the Washington Post could seem more credible, to the point of being written as if they’re from a high school girl’s diary. Maybe they’ve gotten better at crafting their anti-Republican propaganda with the experience they’ve had beating up on the President. Maybe the stories are true this time around. Their veracity may not matter. This is an allegation of the worst kind for a man with the squeaky clean image of Judge Moore. It’s a brilliant and despicable play by the globalist Democrats, the only hope they had of preventing a strong conservative from going to the Senate. Then again there’s always the possibility it could be McConnell establishment Republicans behind it all, trying to get their boy Luther back into that seat and  willing to roll the dice that he could defeat the Democrat where he couldn’t beat Moore...  https://rickwells.us/moore-dems-sex-smear/

Watchdog sues to see if James
Comey 'coordinated' testimony with Robert Mueller
by Joel Gehrke
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ A conservative watchdog group is suing the Justice Department to find out if former FBI Director James Comey “coordinated” with special counsel Robert Mueller... before Comey's appearance before Congress. Judicial Watch wants “all records of communications” between Comey and the Justice Department, which would include communications to Mueller, in the run-up to Comey's appearance before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June. Congressional investigators wanted information on Comey’s firing by President Trump, as some lawmakers suspected the move was an attempt to impede a federal investigation into whether his campaign coordinated with the Russian government’s cyber attacks against the Democratic party in 2016. “It would be a scandal if Comey coordinated his Senate testimony with Mr. Mueller’s special counsel office,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Tuesday. “That we have had to sue in federal court speaks volumes.”...  http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/watchdog-sues-to-see-if-james-com...

A Time to Mourn

by Minister Michael Brown
{townhall.com} ~ Ecclesiastes wrote that there is “a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance” (Eccl. 3:4). Now is a time to mourn, a time to weep. Now is a time to grieve with those who grieve and hurt with those who hurt. And now is a time to turn to the Lord and ask Him to have mercy on our nation and heal our land.

Who can imagine the pain of the people of the Sutherland Springs, Texas, a town of just a few hundred?

Already 26 are confirmed dead, ranging in age from 5 to 72, all them shot while worshiping in their local Baptist Church. One of them was the pastor’s 14-year-old daughter. 

Twenty more are reported wounded, meaning that most of those in the service were shot. Can we even begin to wrap our minds around this?

Every family in this town has been affected. Dreams have been destroyed. Plans for a bright future have been demolished. What a massive, unspeakable tragedy.

You wake up on a Sunday morning on a beautiful fall morning, you head over to the church building to sing to the Lord and pray and hear a message. And you never make it home. Or your spouse or child or grandparent never makes it home. Or you’re airlifted from the service in critical condition, your whole life turned upside down.

Can we let this sink in until our hearts are breaking? Can we let this sink in until we share some of the burden with our brothers and sisters in Texas?

At times like this, we are consumed with questions, wanting to know why and how. 

What we do know about the murderer? What motivated him? Why did he launch his attack on a Sunday morning? What could have been done to prevent this? Why does God allow such things to happen?

Those are all valid questions, and there will be plenty of time to seek valid answers. But now is a time to mourn and pray. Can we at least take a few minutes to stop what we’re doing, turn off the news, and cry out to the Lord? 

At times like this, it’s all too easy to politicize the pain, to argue for stricter gun control or to argue for better church security or to blame one political party or another. 

All this has already been done today, setting the internet on fire with tweets and countertweets, none of which I will link here, since that will only distract us or annoy us or enflame us. 

Perhaps there’s something more constructive we can do right now? Perhaps praying and grieving is more appropriate? Perhaps asking the Lord to help those who are suffering would be a better use of our time, at least for a few minutes?

I understand that both advocates of gun control and advocates of more gun security care about the loss of life and want to prevent it. We are united in the desire to see the carnage stop. But again, there’s a time for political debate and there’s a time to cease from political debate, at least for a few hours or a day. Now is one of those times where political debate can wait.

There is a community traumatized.

There are bloody bodies laying on the floor of a little church building, which is now an active crime scene.

There are children fighting for their lives in neighboring hospitals.

There are parents and families in shock.

The least we could do is feel some of their pain and ask God for comfort and intervention. 

And let’s not get into online battles with the mockers who say there’s no need to pray, since God didn’t stop this from happening in the first place. Don’t let them dishonor the name of the Lord we love, the same Lord that these victims and their families loved, the same Lord who is at work even now in the midst of the agony, the same Lord who has welcomed 26 of His children into His heavenly presence.

This is now the second mass shooting in 5 weeks and the second church shooting in 6 weeks. The Las Vegas massacre took place on October 1. The church shooting in Tennessee took place on September 24. And it’s the second mass murder of the week, with the car attack taking place just 6 days ago. And all this comes on the heels of dozens dying in forest fires and millions being affected by hurricanes. Is this not enough to drive us to our knees?

America is hurting right now, and in many ways, we are a very sick nation. Only God can heal our land. 

Turning to Him with all our hearts and souls in repentance and prayer is our only hope – and the only hope of the people of Sutherland Springs. 

Let’s join them in their grief, as we appeal to our Father for mercy. There’s nothing more important we can do.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Tea Party Wishes You And Your Family
A Happy Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

George Washington
President of the United States of America
