          I don’t believe in Jesus as a real person, but I do love the Christmas season with the Babe in the manger, the lights that represent hope, and the carols that speak of peace. Is it okay to celebrate a myth?

          From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham

          Christmas is a time filled with anticipation and preparation. Cards are sent and received, and the thrill of wrapping and unwrapping gifts makes for a joyful time shared with loved ones. Even today, people who don’t necessarily believe personally in Jesus as the Savior of the world send cards with pictures of what artists think Jesus may have looked like. There are images of the Babe in the manger, shepherds, and animals. The world is fascinated with the grandeur of the greatest story ever told.

          But it isn’t just a story. It is truth. No matter how Jesus is imagined, He has no stronger portrait than the one in the Bible. It is a picture of the man who is God. He is the foundation of Christianity. Since the quickest way to destroy any edifice is to tear out or weaken its base, people have always tried to disprove, ignore, or scoff at the claims of Christ. The hope of the world, however, is found only in the redemption from sin. This is dependent upon the deity of Christ.

          While there are attacks on the celebration of Christmas in the 21st century, Christmas has been commercialized and is big business. The reality is that Jesus is truth and proclaims all people are sinners. This is why He came to seek and save those who are lost (Luke 19:10). This is the story of Christmas and this is the portrait of the Son of God. On this Christmas Eve, believe in Him and receive Him. He is the Light of the world.

          (This column is based on the words and writings of the late Rev. Billy Graham.)

            Report: Attacks on Christian Churches Nearly Triple in Four Years:

            Attacks on Christian churches have nearly tripled in the last four years, according to an 84-page report released by Family Research Council (FRC) in December.

            Between January 2018 and September 2022, FRC found 420 documented acts of hostility against 397 separate churches in the United States.  Many cases included incidences of vandalism, bomb threats, arson, and gun-related violence.

            “The report documents one homicide, numerous arsons, bomb threats (real and fake), and a pervasive desecration of holy items. Vandals regularly smashed crosses, statues, and headstones in cemeteries; vandalized carvings of the Ten Commandments; set fire to a Nativity scene. . .  according to the Washington Stand, FRC’s news outlet.

            “They tore up a Bible and desecrated an American flag in a Primitive Methodist church in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Denver’s Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church suffered two drive-by shootings this August. Smashed windows and spray-painted doors became ubiquitous.

            Pro-abortion extremists executed at least 57 attacks in the first nine months of 2022 against Christian churches, a “1,140 percent increase over the past four years,” the outlet reported.

            Besides abortion and the Black Lives Matter movement, FRC found that “radical pro-LGBTQ activism, support for COVID-19 church closures, secularism, Satanism, Islamic fundamentalism, and anti-Americanism also wrought havoc in parishes nationwide.”

              The Salt And Light Must Not Check Out, Tune Out, Or Recoil Into Silence When The World Needs Us Most:

              Recently, I’ve heard more statements of distrust. It concerns me. Have you heard it too? “I don’t know who to believe or trust. I just tune it all out. I’ve stopped listening to the Left or Right. I don’t read any news because I don’t know who’s telling the truth. I turned off the media altogether.”

              Why is that a problem? Because we are supposed to be discerning salt-pourers and light-bearers. God is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart, and we must be as well. We are not given a choice to check out, tune out, or recoil into silence.

              Tony Perkins at Family Research Council said it extremely well in his article about truth:
              “When there’s hostility towards faith, it seems easier to just give up on the public square. ‘I’ll just focus on my family, my job, and go about my day,’ some think. Yet when you take that seemingly safer path, it means you’re neglecting the Lord’s instructions to be salt and light.

              Political and cultural engagement are part of fulfilling Jesus’s command to love our neighbors.  By supporting policies like the rule of law, limited government, human dignity, parental rights, and religious freedom, we can establish the kind of conditions that allow all people to flourish.

              However, the Left opposes such policies and instead wants our tax dollars to pay for abortion-on-demand and public schools to teach gender identity ideology to children as young as kindergarten behind parents’ backs.”

              Salt preserves what is most susceptible to rot and decay. When we check out, tune out, or stay silent, we stop being the active ingredient that preserves freedom, hope, sanity, and peace. We allow the rot to begin or the decay to spread. When we pull back from the battle and stop speaking, participating, or standing against the tide of evil, we cease to dispel the darkness.

              The world hates the Light. Jesus promised us nothing less, “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (John 15:18-19; 17:14; 1 John 3:13).

              Church, this is our moment!  Be His voice in the silence. Be His light in the darkness. Be His salt in the time of decay and tastelessness.

              Believers, this is our moment. We’re surrounded by darkness. Lies, deceit, and moral depravity are everywhere. Some Christians bemoan the darkness and lament the decay, but that is the wrong response. It’s not time for depression, anxiety, and timidity. It’s time for offense!

                What is Christmas Without Christ?:

                The ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel tells us constantly that we now live in a post-Christian America.  They exalt in proclaiming the end of Christ’s dominant influence on Western Civilization.  As a result, we’ve descended from a city on a hill to a modern Sodom and Gomorrah.  Our elites call evil good and good evil.

                Ever since the nine black-robed masters of America decreed back in 1962 that God was expelled from school we’ve witnessed the steady degradation of our society.  The coarseness and vulgarity we’re deluged with on a daily basis was unknown in earlier days.

                Back in the dream time we used to go to Christmas programs at our children’s schools and listen to the little darlings sing The First Noel, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem, and O Come O Come Emmanuel.  Now we listen to them sing songs in foreign languages. . . intermixed with a few songs about winter, snow, or maybe animals.  It may all be Woke but it sure doesn’t have anything to do with the reason for the season.

                Just in case all the tinsel and the twinkling lights have blinded us to what that reason is, let me elaborate.

                Christmas is all about Jesus the Christ born as a human so that he could bear the sins of the world, die a substitutionary death in our place, rise triumphantly from the grave and ascend into heaven so that we who believe can live in and through Him.  That’s what it’s all about.

                Not to be Grinch, let me wish everyone a Merry Christmas.  Let’s enjoy our family and friends.  Let’s celebrate our traditions as we remember Jesus is the reason for the season.  Let’s wake up and smell the frankincense and myrrh for without Christ in Christmas all we have is “mas.”

                  China Sends 71 War Planes In the Skies Around Taiwan in “Military Drill”:

                  China appears to be setting up Taiwan for a Chinese invasion.

                  We previously reported on China’s efforts to invade Taiwan. Expert Bradley Thayer said China could invade Taiwan any day.

                  Today, it was reported that China sent 71 warplanes over Taiwan’s airspace yesterday.

                  China deployed 71 warplanes to skies around Taiwan in a chilling ‘strike drill’, then blamed the US for ‘provocations’ and ‘collusion’ with the self-governing island – in one of the biggest daily incursions to date.

                  Sixty fighter jets took part in the drills, including six Su-30 warplanes, some of China’s most advanced, Taipei’s defense ministry said in a Twitter post on Monday.

                    19th Century Vermont Farmer Wilson Bentley Was The World’s First Person To Photograph A Snowflake, Forever Proving That God Created No Two Alike:

                    Wilson Bentley was called the Snowflake Man because he created photographic proof that no two snowflakes are created alike, a feat only God could do:

                    You likely have never heard the name Wilson Bentley, but there was a day when he was quite famous, but by another name, the Snowflake Man. He was called that because he was the world’s first person to capture a freshly-fallen snowflake on camera, and over the course of his life would photograph 5,000 of them. What did those 5,000 snowflakes prove? That God created them all in different shapes, with no two alike, a feat that evolution could never pull off in a billion years. But God could, and did.

                    Have you ever wondered how many snowflakes fall from Heaven upon the earth in a given year? The actual number is unknowable, but a really close estimate is absolutely possible, so brace yourself for this. Each year, about 1 septillion snowflakes fall from the sky, that’s a 1 with 24 zeros after it and it looks like this – 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Because the Bible says that snow comes from heaven, that means it’s a creation of God Almighty, and He makes all of them in different shapes every time it snows.

                    In his study of snowflakes, he learned that almost all snow crystals have six similar branches, and a few very rare ones have three. He at first expected that all snowflakes would be the same, but was surprised to learn that all of those he examined were different. Bentley concluded that, to the best of his knowledge, no snowflake “was an exact duplicate of any other snowflake!,” adding “with profound humility, we acknowledge that the Great Designer is incomparable and unapproachable in the infinite prodigality and beauty of His works.”

                      Hollywood realizes massive market value decline of more than $500 billion in 2022:

                      Whether by choice or out of necessity, Americans voted with their dollars in a big way in 2022, and those financial moves spelled disaster for Hollywood now facing more than half a trillion dollars in losses.

                      At all levels of corporate media, consumers have been faced with a constant barrage of progressive narratives from social justice causes to climate activism and radical gender theories. The desire to escape into fiction for entertainment has been sullied by those only ever striving to advance their personal agenda resulting not in the change of hearts and minds, but in major box office flops.

                      The news was celebrated by many who saw it as just dessert for the flaunted disconnect that corporate media has espoused from consumers.

                        Iran brags about its missile export to Palestinians, Hezbollah:

                        Tehran Times published an article describing how Iran developed its missiles and distributed them to its allies throughout the Middle East.

                        Iranian pro-government media published an article on Sunday bragging about its “integrated missile network” and how it has armed the “resistance” in the Middle East.

                        By “resistance,” the report was referring to a network of pro-Iranian groups and proxy groups it supports, particularly Hezbollah, the Palestinians and Yemen.

                          S.Korea Fires Shots, Scrambles Jets After North Sends Drones Near Seoul:

                          A rare and hugely significant incident occurred Monday along the heavily fortified border which separates the Korean peninsula. South Korea’s military has confirmed it fired warning shots and scrambled jets after the north sent drones that violated the south’s sovereign airspace.

                          It marks the first such major territory-breaching incident in a half-decade, also resulting in Seoul sending surveillance aircraft across the border in response. The North Korean drones penetrated deep into the south’s territory, resulting in civilian commercial flights being temporarily grounded in and around Seoul.

                          “South Korea’s military detected five drones from North Korea crossing the border, and one traveled as far as the northern part of the South Korean capital region, which is about an hour’s drive away, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said,” according to The Associated Press.

                          “The military responded by firing warning shots and launching fighter jets and attack helicopters to shoot down the North Korean drones,” the report based on official military statements continues. “The attack helicopters fired a combined 100 rounds but it wasn’t immediately known if any of the North Korean drones were shot down, according to the Defense Ministry.”

                          Only one of the five drones was observed flying back across the border into North Korea, while the others disappeared from radar, according to the south’s Joint Chiefs.

                          “Our military will thoroughly and resolutely respond to this kind of North Korean provocation,” Maj. Gen. Lee Seung-o, spokesman for the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a press briefing.

                          Tensions along the militarized border have already been high due to Pyongyang firing off a record number of ballistic and other missiles this year, including a pair fired last week toward Japan. With now days left in 2022, analysts have tracked over 90 missiles fired this year.

                            Pope Francis: Say ‘Special Prayer’ for Benedict, He Is ‘Very Ill’:

                            ROME — Pope Francis called on the faithful Wednesday to offer prayers for his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI, who he said is “very ill.”

                            “I would like to ask you all for a special prayer for Pope Emeritus Benedict, who is supporting the Church in silence,” the pontiff told the faithful gathered in the Vatican for his weekly general audience.

                            “Remember him — he is very ill — asking the Lord to console him and to sustain him in this witness of love for the Church, until the end,” Francis added.

                              US troops’ fingerprints, eye scans sold on eBay:

                              Military devices with biometric data on thousands of people, including Americans, are being sold to the highest bidder on eBay, putting troops and their helpers at risk and raising questions about why the data isn’t better protected.

                              U.S. troops used the handheld “biometric capture” devices to collect fingerprints, iris scans, and other data that could identify people in foreign countries. Now, some of those devices are being put up for public auction, complete with biometric data collected on the battlefield, the New York Times reported.

                              . . . . fears that the Taliban could use them to hunt collaborators after the U.S. withdrawal.

                              “It was disturbing that they didn’t even try to protect the data,” Matthias Marx, one of the hackers, said of the U.S. military. “They didn’t care about the risk, or they ignored the risk.”

                                The Tacoma substation attacks follow “deliberate attacks” on two power substations in North Carolina early this month. Duke Energy personnel found bullet holes in transformers.

                                We’ve asked the question of who is intentionally sabotaging the US power grid. In the first eight months of the year, there were 106 attacks on the electrical grid, the highest number ever recorded in a single year.

                                  Angry Tesla Owners Share Videos of Their Cars Failing to Work in the Cold:

                                  The Daily Mail reports that numerous Tesla owners have reported being unable to access their vehicles due to frozen door handles during a severe winter storm in Canada and the United States. Rachel Modestino, a meteorologist from Ontario, experienced this issue firsthand on December 23 when temperatures reached a low of 5º F and her car’s door latch failed to function.

                                  Modestino’s situation gained significant attention on social media, as a video she posted of her struggle with the frozen door handle has garnered over 10.1 million views on Twitter. In the tweet accompanying the video, Modestino quipped, “Bet ya didn’t think of ice in the Tesla design.”

                                  Modestino’s viral tweet sparked a response from both Tesla critics and supporters. Some offered their support and suggestions on how to open the frozen door, including using the car’s accompanying app to remotely unlatch it. Others took the opportunity to criticize Tesla, with one person writing, “You shouldn’t need to use Twitter to learn how to use your expensive car.”

                                  Breitbart News recently reported on a Tesla owner named Domenick Nati, a radio host in Virginia, that went viral after posting a video showing his Tesla Model S unable to charge in the cold weather. It was reportedly around 19°F – or -7°C – at the time of the video recording.

                                  Tesla’s electronic door handles have been subject to criticism and safety concerns for years. In May, Breitbart News reported on a Canadian man who was forced to kick out the window of his Tesla to escape it after a battery fire rendered the electronic door handle inoperable.

                                    In a statement made on Tuesday, Buffalo-based restaurant owner, Carl Anderson Jr., said he found the looting which is happening in the aftermath of the Blizzard of 2022 “heart-breaking and disgusting” and called out the lack of responsiveness to the criminal activity by the Buffalo Police Department (BPD).
                                    “I called the police station on Bailey Avenue next door to me and 911 directly. For whatever reasons, no one showed up and the criminal activity continued throughout the night,” Andersen said in a Facebook post published on Tuesday.

                                    “It’s amazing how badly Buffalo and Erie County bungled this storm. I have clients’ stores getting looted in Buffalo because they essentially told the whole county that police wouldn’t be out patrolling,” Buffalo-based insurance salesman Mike Sperrazza said.

                                      Ann Coulter: Happy Kwanzaa! The Holiday Brought to You by the FBI:

                                      Celebrated exclusively by white liberals, Kwanzaa is a fake holiday invented in 1966 by black radical/FBI stooge Ron Karenga – aka Dr. Maulana Karenga, founder of United Slaves, the violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers. Liberals have become so mesmerized by multicultural gibberish that they have forgotten the real history of Kwanzaa and Karenga’s United Slaves.

                                      The left has forgotten the FBI’s tacit encouragement of this murderous black nationalist cult founded by the father of Kwanzaa. The esteemed Cal State professor’s invented holiday is a nutty blend of schmaltzy ’60s rhetoric, black racism, and Marxism. The seven principles of Kwanzaa are the very same seven principles of the Symbionese Liberation Army, another invention of The Worst Generation.

                                      In 1974, Patty Hearst, kidnap victim-cum-SLA revolutionary, famously posed next to the banner of her alleged captors, a seven-headed cobra. Each snakehead stood for one of the SLA’s revolutionary principles: Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ujamaa, Nia, Kuumba, and Imani. These are the exact same seven “principles” of Kwanzaa.

                                      When Karenga was asked to distinguish Kawaida, the philosophy underlying Kwanzaa, from “classical Marxism,” he essentially said that, under Kawaida, we also hate whites.  Karenga said Kawaida practitioners believe one’s racial identity “determines life conditions, life chances, and self-understanding.”

                                      Kwanzaa emerged not from Africa, but from the FBI’s COINTELPRO. It is a holiday celebrated exclusively by . . . .  white liberals. Black Americans celebrate Christmas.

                                        WATCH: Huge Crowd Attends Reading of Faith-Based Children’s Book Despite Library’s Attempt to Stop Event:

                                        Adults and children filled the Indianapolis Public Library’s main branch on Thursday to hear actor, writer, and film producer Kirk Cameron read his recently published children’s book, As You Grow.

                                        The library organization initially denied Cameron the opportunity to read the book for its story hour but later caved and allowed the event to happen.

                                        A video recording shows a long line of people walking into the building, and photos capture families sitting on the floor and standing against the wall.

                                        “This was the largest event held at the library in its 137 years of existence,” Zac Bell with BRAVE Books, who is with the book’s publisher, commented. “The turnout was phenomenal! We were blown away.”

                                        Cameron’s book centers around a tree’s growth and teaches children about family, faith, and biblical wisdom.

                                        According to Bell, the Indianapolis Public Library “originally denied us the ability to book the reading. We sent them a letter that threatened legal action and they backed down.”

                                        Meanwhile, Cameron and his publisher recently criticized libraries that will not allow a public reading of his book but offer “drag queen story hours” for children.

                                        However, “No more will the family of faith be shut out from the public square!” Cameron wrote in a social media post Wednesday.

                                            Chinese fighter jet threatens American aircraft in international airspace, prompting evasive maneuvers:

                                            A Chinese communist fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Air Force RC-135 aircraft in international airspace last week, prompting the American spy plane to take evasive maneuvers.

                                            U.S. Indo-Pacific Command issued a release on Thursday noting that a Chinese Navy J-11 fighter pilot came dangerously close to a USAF aircraft on Dec. 21 during an intercept over the South China Sea. The communist jet flew in front of and within 20 feet of the nose of the RC-135.

                                            The interception and subsequent provocation took place while the American plane was conducting legal, routine operations in international airspace.

                                            A similar incident took place between a Chinese fighter jet and an Australian plane in the area this past summer.

                                              ‘I am not a criminal’: Woman arrested for silent prayer outside abortion clinic speaks out:

                                              A woman who was arrested for a silent prayer in front of an abortion clinic in the U.K. says she was taken to the police station and questioned about her thoughts, according to a new video released online.

                                              “I’m a friend to some, a sister to others, a charity worker, a Christian. … I’m not a criminal,” says Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, who says she has been formally charged on “four counts” previously believed to be for failing to comply and “anti-social behavior” for the incident that took place in Birmingham, England.

                                              “When I was taken down to the police station, I was then grilled about what I was thinking,” says Spruce.

                                              “Later, they let me know that I’ve now been charged on four counts, because of the thoughts I’ve been thinking and where I’ve been thinking them,” she explains.

                                                          Democrat Gov. Hochul Legalizes Composting Human Remains in New York:

                                                          New York is now the sixth state in the nation that has legalized the practice.

                                                          The bill was introduced by Democrat State Assembly Member Amy Paulin and Democrat State Sen. Leroy Comrie. It states that “Natural Organic Reduction accelerates the process of biological decomposition in an above-ground container, naturally converting human remains to soil. The method will provide New Yorkers with the option of choosing an environmentally sustainable and cost-effective alternative to burial and cremation. Natural Organic Reduction was legalized in Washington State in 2019 and is currently going through legislative efforts in other states.”

                                                          “Like most bills in Albany, there were no public hearings allowing New Yorkers to weigh in on the pros and cons of the bill. It was all done behind closed doors,” Poust added. “The average New Yorker has no idea this bill was introduced, let alone passed.

                                                          The process takes 60 days and works by placing a person’s remains in a vessel and filling it with a mix of wood chips, alfalfa, and straw.

                                                          The New York State Catholic Conference has vehemently opposed the bill.
                                                          “Composting is something we as a society associate with a sustainable method of eliminating organic trash that otherwise ends up in landfills. But human bodies are not household waste, and the bishops do not believe that the process meets the standard of reverent treatment of our earthly remains,” Dennis Poust, executive director of the New York State Catholic Conference, told the Catholic Courier.

                                                            THIS WILL NOT END WELL: Communist Chinese Scientists Explore Using MOSQUITOS to Distribute VACCINES, Could Create Dangerous MUTANT Insects Instead:

                                                            Designing a killer virus evidently was just a little test run for the Chicoms. Now they might unleash mankind’s most notorious insect to supposedly “vaccinate” wildlife and reduce viral infections.

                                                            Hard to imagine any unintended consequences will occur. It’s not like mosquitos spread nasty infections like Yellow Fever, Malaria, West Nile, and Dengue Fever to humans.

                                                            The South China Morning Post reported Wednesday that Chinese scientists claim they found a way to turn the disease-carrying nuisance into an indispensable ally of all humanity. Of course, this required them to create a few genetically modified insects.

                                                            Here are their findings. No question they applied this trial with the same rigor and caution as their other gain-of-function research projects:

                                                            “The researchers found that bites in wildlife from genetically modified mosquitoes triggered a strong, long-lasting immune response. Once immunized, the animals resisted infections, thus helping to prevent the early spread of many viruses, including the once widespread Zika virus (ZIKV).”

                                                            “In their study, the researchers used CYV as a vaccine vector to construct a chimeric vaccine, which contains proteins from a different virus. They took several proteins from CYV and inserted them into ZIKV cells to create the CYV-ZIKV virus, which was not infectious (in animals, human impact unknown). CYV-ZIKV could replicate efficiently in mosquitoes and be secreted in saliva, they said.”

                                                            But don’t worry about this virus reaching mosquitos in the wild. Chinese scientists assure us they took care of the problem. You can trust the Chicoms, right?

                                                            There also exists the possibility these GMO mosquitos will mate with wild ones and form dangerous hybrids if this experiment expands. This actually occurred fairly recently.

                                                            Back in 2018, a British Biotech company called Oxitec Ltd. unleashed genetically altered mosquitos in Brazil to reduce the mosquito population. The first months seemed successful as the mosquito numbers declined.

                                                            Unfortunately, the insects adapted and the population bounced back with a vengeance 18 months later. The GMO mosquitos and wild populations also successfully mated to form mutant hybrids. This will make them more resistant to future mosquito control efforts.

                                                            The most dangerous virus in the world is not COVID, AIDS, or even Ebola. It is the Chinese Communist Party.

                                                            THIS WILL NOT END WELL: Communist Chinese Scientists Explore Using MOSQUITOS to Distribute VACCINES, Could Create Dangerous MUTANT Insects Instead

It is important to be perfectly clear about what this means.  An expert on real estate law would not be permitted to impart real estate expertise to any of these groups if they also support the existence of one Jewish state among 22 Arab countries in the Middle East.  An expert in Title IX could not come speak to the women’s law group if they also support the right for Jewish liberation after thousands of years of anti-Jewish persecution and annihilation.

                                                                    Make no mistake, these are Jew-free zones, i.e., platforms or podia forbidden to Jews.  They are not, however, boycotting only Israel. They are boycotting American Jews.

                                                                    But it gets even worse.  And now, at Berkeley Law, they also bar Israel’s supporters from speaking to these organizations, not only about the Middle East, but about any topic. This includes the great majority of Jews. Chemerinsky concedes that he would be banned, as would 90% of Berkeley’s Jewish law students. No other group is banned in this way. Not rapists. Not axe murderers. Only Zionists are banned.

                                                                    While this is a story about Berkeley, it is not only a story about Berkeley. Berkeley is not Las Vegas. What happens there does not stay there. What begins there, and succeeds there, spreads elsewhere. And make no mistake: silencing Jews is the way such stories begin, not the way they end.

                                                                    Some in the Jewish community say that we are too alarmed over this. The real problem is that we are not alarmed enough.

                                                                    Berkeley’s Jewish-Free Zones Are Worse Than You Think

                                                                                Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,  How bad do things have to get before people start realizing that we are in the midst of a full-blown economic crisis?

                                                                                The “experts” on television are endlessly debating about whether or not we are going to have a “recession” this year, and meanwhile economic activity is imploding all around us.  The number of homes being sold in this country each month has already fallen by a third.  The number of job cuts in November was 417 percent higher than it was during the same month a year earlier, and at this point even Amazon is laying off thousands of workers.  The Federal Reserve has declared war on inflation, but prices continue to spiral out of control.  In fact, vegetables are 80 percent more expensive now than they were 12 months ago.  Meanwhile, the financial markets continue to plunge.  A third of the value of the Nasdaq has already been wiped out, and more than two-thirds of the value of all cryptocurrencies is already gone.

                                                                                So many people have been waiting for an economic nightmare to come, but the truth is that it is already here.  The following are 11 signs that the economic “tipping point” that everyone has been waiting for has now arrived… [I’ll just pick out a few]

                                                                                U.S. manufacturing is declining at the fastest pace that we have seen since the early days of the COVID pandemic…

                                                                                Thanks to rapidly falling imports, we just witnessed the largest monthly decline in the trade deficit since the last financial crisis…

                                                                                In 2022, U.S. auto sales were the lowest that we have seen for a full year in more than a decade…

                                                                                The average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is more than twice as high as it was this time last year…

                                                                                Overall, existing home sales in the United States have fallen for 10 months in a row and are now down by more than a third since January 2022.

                                                                                Bed Bath & Beyond is warning that the company is literally on the verge of declaring bankruptcy…
                                                                                It is being reported that Amazon has decided to lay off approximately 18,000 employees…
                                                                                Overall, the tech industry has already laid off more than 150,000 workers over the last year.

                                                                                Our leaders were able to keep the party going for a long time by absolutely flooding the system with money, but now they have lost control.

                                                                                  • #106657

                                                                                      Todd, have you tried Walmart super center for the chicken?  I bought Tyson’s all natural chicken breasts already cut up to do the stir fry for $5.00.  The rest I froze good for 4 other meals. To me that is dirt cheap compared to what the other grocery stores are selling.

                                                                                      Walmarts brand of saltine crackers $1.59  a box all the other stores are charging over $5.00 for their brand.

                                                                                      If you need toilet paper … go to Dollar General … I just bought 4 rolls for $1.00.  Got to go down the $1.00 aisle to find it.  It was mixed in with the other things.  Certainly a good bargain … good size roll and feels like Charmin brand.

                                                                                      Eggs … This morning I just got 3 dozen free eggs from the local drive thru food bank.  They are good until March 3rd.  I can’t buy eggs in the store … it’s untouchable.  I would check into your area for the local drive thru food bank … its for anybody.  I see out of staters also in the line.  So many just don’t realize they qualify … no questions asked other than how many in your family and then they load up your trunk.

                                                                                      Thousands of opponents of socialist convicted felon President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva stormed his offices and the headquarters of the Congress and Supreme Federal Tribunal (STF) of Brazil on Sunday, reportedly demolishing the facades of two of the three buildings and causing “irreparable” damage to priceless artifacts in the chambers.

                                                                                      The riot in Brasilia occurred while Lula himself was in Sao Paulo state assessing the damage of recent floods. Lula, in a public statement following police action to subdue the protesters, announced an official “federal intervention” in Brasilia – consolidating the public security powers of several agencies into the hands of a hand-picked, top-level official – and accused police of acting in “bad faith” in failing to prevent the protesters from storming the buildings.

                                                                                      The incident is an offshoot of months of protests following the October presidential election that saw Lula narrowly defeat then-incumbent President Jair Bolsonaro in two rounds of voting. Most protesters support Bolsonaro but, more broadly, oppose Lula’s victory as illegitimate on several grounds, including his multiple convictions on charges of corrupt acts occurring during his first two terms as president. An audit of the 2022 runoff presidential election, which featured only Bolsonaro and Lula as candidates, by the Armed Forces of Brazil concluded that no guarantee could be made of the absence of fraud or irregularities.

                                                                                      Once in the building, protesters set part of the Congress on fire, and destroyed several offices. Authorities have not yet at press time estimated the total damage to the building, though multiple Brazilian news outlets have cited eyewitness accounts to conclude it was significant.

                                                                                                  The FAA ordered a nationwide halt to domestic flights in the United States on Wednesday morning due to a major software meltdown. The error that led to this failure reportedly was caused by an engineer replacing one file with another while working on the system. One FAA official stated, “It was an honest mistake that cost the country millions.”

                                                                                                  Redundancies would have likely prevented the cascading failures if the FAA’s new NOTAM system had been in place, but the senior FAA official claimed that the current outdated system was unable to prevent the error.

                                                                                                  Hearings before Congress are anticipated, and the pace of system replacement may be accelerated. Buttigieg explained that there “was an issue with irregularities in the messages that were going out” overnight when asked what caused the system to crash. However, more information is still needed to determine what caused the widespread failure.

                                                                                                  “Now we have to understand how this could have happened in the first place. Why the usual redundancies that would stop it from being that disrupted, did not stop it from being disrupted this time, and what the original source of the errors or the corrupted files would have been,” Buttigieg said.

                                                                                                    “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us,” Priscilla confirmed in a statement to PEOPLE Thursday evening.

                                                                                                    Earlier Thursday TMZ reported that Lisa Marie Presley, the 54-year-old daughter of Elvis Presley, went into “full (cardiac) arrest” at her Los Angeles area home Thursday morning. TMZ said Presley was given epinephrine and had a pulse before being taken to the hospital.

                                                                                                    Lisa Marie Presley appeared to be in good health earlier this week.

                                                                                                            Joe Rogan suggested on his podcast this week that the wanton violence and seeming lawlessness in various American cities may not be accidental, but rather by design.

                                                                                                            The podcaster told former CIA agent Mike Baker on a recent episode of the “Joe Rogan Experience” that leftist billionaire George Soros, 92, “wants crime to flourish” and “funds corrosion.”

                                                                                                            “He donates money to [someone] very progressive, very leftist — whether it’s a DA or whatever politician — and then funds someone who’s even further left than them to go against them, and just keeps moving it along.”  “He’s playing like a global game … and he enjoys doing it,” Rogan added.

                                                                                                            TheBlaze reported this week on revelations that Soros’ nonprofit system, the Soros Network, has funneled nearly $21 billion into left-leaning politics since 2000.

                                                                                                            The former CIA agent intimated that it is a popular misconception that senators or similar politicians are the most influential power-brokers. Instead, “it’s the DAs and it’s the state-level politicians. That’s where real change occurs and where things can happen.”

                                                                                                            “That’s what’s scary: It seems like he funds corrosion. It’s like he wants these cities to fall apart. He wants crime to flourish,” said Rogan. “It’s almost like he’s an evil person in a Batman movie.”

                                                                                                            In an apparent effort to bolster the villain claim, Baker noted that Soros “made his real fortune by almost busting the bank of England. … He’s not out there for truth and justice.”

                                                                                                                If you’ve been on social media the last day or so, you’ve probably noticed there’s a moral panic occurring over gas stoves. According to Democrats far and wide, they are dangerous, cause asthma, and must be banned by the federal government.

                                                                                                                . . . in the span of just 24 hours, Ocasio-Cortez saw some questionable study, promoted it on the internet, gained legions of supporters for her position, and then tried to pretend that everyone else had been ignoring her desperate calls. As Charles W. Cooke notes, it’s cultish behavior.

                                                                                                                What makes this even dumber is that all the Democrats currently pushing for a ban on gas stoves apparently have them. If they are so dangerous, why didn’t Elizabeth Warren, Jill Biden, Kamala Harris, and others get rid of their gas stoves years ago? Could it be because this entire discussion is completely manufactured?

                                                                                                                The company behind the study is called “Carbon-Free Buildings.” That company is a partner of the World Economic Forum and has a true-believer CEO who wants to rid the world of all carbon emissions (which is impossible and would lead to mass extinction).

                                                                                                                Now, it’s all starting to make sense. Is this moral panic over gas stoves really about children and asthma? Of course, it’s not. Rather, it is yet more nonsense from the WEF and its like-minded corporate underlings regarding climate change. It’s obvious, in my view, that the citation of health risks being bandied about currently is just a convenient cover to try to force more people off forms of energy that rely on fossil fuels (i.e. natural gas).

                                                                                                                The climate change cult is just using this “study,” which I wouldn’t trust as far as I can throw it, to accomplish its ultimate goal. But what’s scary here is how quickly they were able to mobilize. A study gets put out, Ocasio-Cortez and others run with it, and suddenly the federal government is trying to tell you what stove you can cook on. There’s a certain psychotic efficiency to the modern left, and it shouldn’t be brushed aside.

                                                                                                                      Cellphone video captured a confrontation involving a Mall of America security guard telling a man wearing a “Jesus Saves” T-shirt that his shirt is “offending” shoppers at the famously large mall in Bloomington, Minnesota — and the guard ordered the man to remove the shirt or leave the mall.

                                                                                                                      The back of man’s shirt reads “Jesus is the only way” and includes the well-known “coexist” symbol crossed out, the outlet said.

                                                                                                                      “Jesus is associated with religion, and it’s offending people,” a security guard tells the man in one clip, adding that “people have been offended.”

                                                                                                                      The guard then tells the man to remove his shirt or leave the mall.  The man asks what’s wrong with the shirt, and the guard replies — with his voice still raised — that “it is religious soliciting; there is no soliciting allowed on mall property, which is private property!”

                                                                                                                      As it happens, the outlet added that the Mall of America hosted and promoted a drag show for “all ages” about a year ago year in its “iconic rotunda.”

                                                                                                                        The Los Angeles Police Department banned the Thin Blue Line flag because it now allegedly symbolizes “undemocratic, racist, and bigoted views” held by extremist groups.

                                                                                                                        The Thin Blue Line symbol is a pro-police emblem that is said to represent the thin line between order and lawlessness in society that is maintained by law enforcement who wear blue uniforms.

                                                                                                                        LAPD Chief Michel Moore sent an email to department personnel on Friday announcing that the department was banning the Thin Blue Line symbol. The LAPD has barred the Thin Blue Line symbol from being displayed in public areas of police property.

                                                                                                                        Moore defended the ban by saying the Thin Blue Line has been “hijacked” by “extremist” groups. He claimed that he received a community complaint this week about the presence of the Thin Blue Line flag in the lobby of the police station. The complaint alleged that the Thin Blue Line flag “symbolized support for violent extremist views.”

                                                                                                                                    Abortions in Texas dramatically decreased in the months following the overturning of Roe v. Wade last June, according to recent state data.

                                                                                                                                    Only three abortions took place in Texas in August 2022, all of which were “medically necessary,” according to statistics from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.

                                                                                                                                    Compared with the 2,596 abortions recorded in the state in June 2022, the number in August represents a decrease of nearly 99%. Sixty-eight abortions were performed in July.  Statistics from September through the end of last year have not yet been released.

                                                                                                                                    Republican Gov. Greg Abbott backed the state’s ban on most abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat.  Under a law he signed in 2021, abortion in the state is permissible only if the life of the mother is endangered.
