Yet...you didn't hear about it on any news media....Not even Christian Television....
I bring it to you here and now....
This is why we love Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).
The man is bold. He stands for what he believes and he doesn’t mind facing the fallout of sticking to his principles. He’s exactly the kind of philosophically devoted candidate we conservatives are always whining about. Which is why it’s high time more conservatives started supporting him over the other candidates. It’s not usually about “social” issues– in fact, more often than not, it’s about taxes or spending – but this time around Cruz focused on marriage and the church’s responsibility to speak out against the culture shift.
In a letter to Christian Pastors all over America, Senator Cruz reminds us that the church must stay involved in politics and culture if our nation is to have any hope of remaining great.
On Tuesday, April 28, the United States Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in favor of “same-sex marriage.”
How will the American church respond?
The prophet Daniel described the people who know their God as people who do two things: display strength and take action (Daniel 11:32).
How can the church rise to the occasion in this situation? Along with my friend David Lane of the American Renewal Project, I urge you to consider the following:
1. Preach about biblical marriage on Sunday, April 26.
We know that marriage is intended to be sacred, beautiful, and nourishing. If you do not influence your congregation’s understanding of marriage, who will fill the void? Hollywood? Divorce courts?
2. Lead prayer services on Tuesday, April 28.
Prayer moves our God to intervene in history. Prayer softens our hearts and brings us into alignment with the heart of God. The church has not shared the truth about marriage well: it is time to repent and commit ourselves to courage on this front.
Regardless of what happens in the Supreme Court, or anywhere else, we know that the truth will never be obsolete. The union of man and woman in marriage will always be relevant. People will continue to need marriage, and to desire it – because we are made in the image of God, creatures who value authentic companionship and intimate connection.
That leaves us only one question. Will we be on the right side of history, the side occupied by the Author of history? Otherwise we will fall victim to the fashions of the times.
Will we discard an institution, ordained by God, which has brought so much stability and happiness to the human family? Or will we stand in its support? Rightly or wrongly, the Supreme Court will take a stand on marriage this summer. Let’s take ours now.
God bless America,
Senator Ted Cruz
P.S. Thank you, as the prophet Daniel might have said, for taking action in defense of marriage. Marriage was God’s idea, and He will preserve it, with or without us. But how could we miss a chance to stand with Him on behalf of something so wonderful?
He’s right. God Bless Ted Cruz.
One of Hillary's and Billary's scandals involves Russia, the global uranium market (OUR URANIUM), and Chelsea's Foundation (the Clinton Global Foundation)
Written by Tim Fernholz
April 23, 2015
In 2010, then-US secretary of state Hillary Clinton was part of a US government committee that approves foreign purchases of US assets. She signed off on a deal that allowed Russia’s atomic energy agency to purchase Uranium One, a mining company behind one-fifth of US uranium production. Since 2005, investors in the mining concern, and specifically a financier named Frank Giustra, gave tens of millions to the Clinton Global Foundation, and in 2010, while the committee was considering the deal, a Russian investment bank paid Bill Clinton $500,000 for a speech.
Failure to disclose. The Clinton Global Foundation had not previously disclosed $2.35 million donations from the Canadian chairman of Uranium One between 2009 and 2013, as Russia’s energy agency negotiated first a minority stake and eventually majority ownership of the company. This is despite an agreement with the Obama administration to disclose foreign donations.
Is there an innocent explanation?
Yes. In 2010, the US was still pushing for a “reset” of its relationship with Russia, and allowing this kind of investment is one way to reduce tensions. As the energy deal was progressing, Russia agreed to support increased sanctions on Iran to stop nuclear proliferation. The foreign investment committee had eight other members besides Clinton, including its chair, then-Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, then-Defense Secretary Bob Gates and then-Energy Secretary Steven Chu. Update: Brian Fallon, Clinton’s press secretary, further disputes pay-to-play narrative.
So what’s the scandal?
Crappy disclosure and enforcement. Whether or not anyone can prove that donations to Bill Clinton and the family foundation actually influenced Hillary Clinton’s role in approving this deal, the real scandal (repeat after me) is always what’s legal: We’ve already seen how secretary of state Clinton elided FOIA requests by using her own e-mail server. Clinton said she “opted for convenience to use my personal email account, which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two.”
The notion that she failed to live up to the voluntary disclosure program that was supposed to dispel accusations of foreign influence on her husband while she was secretary of state is ethically questionable, regardless of legality.
Putting aside the question of the Clintons’ ethics, there’s a larger and more worrisome national security concern: Despite the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s assertion that uranium from the mine can’t leave the US without its license, ——it has been shipped to Canada for refining under another company’s aegis, and 25% of it ends up outside the US——.
Is this a panic moment for the Clintons?
No. The trouble caused by Bill Clinton’s high-rolling ways in today’s story were also highlighted in 2008, in both cases by New York Times reporters. Republican candidate Rand Paul has been darkly warning of a Clinton scandal that will be revealed in a new book called Clinton Cash by conservative writer Peter Schweizer, but absent a smoking gun, file this scandal under “raises questions,” not “ends campaign.”
“Rabbi,” His disciples asked Him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.”
John 9:2–3, NLT
Jesus Is Your Solution
I love how our Lord Jesus is such a loving and practical God. When there is a problem, He goes straight to the solution!
Before Jesus stepped in to heal the man born blind, his disciples were caught up in uncovering whose sin had made the man blind. Jesus, on the other hand, was interested only in using His power to give the poor man sight!
The same way Jesus didn’t get sucked into the “blame game” is the same way He doesn’t want you to. So don’t ask what or whose sin caused your sickness. Forget about what you should or shouldn’t have done or why it happened. Be preoccupied instead with your solution—Jesus Christ, who through the cross has removed every sin in your life and who wants to work a miracle in your body!
Politicians in America like to say there’s a war on women because they don’t have enough access to free birth control. Women in the Middle East can’t feel too sorry for American women – life as a female in one of the most terrorist ravaged regions in the world is absolutely horrific. Last night, Glenn aired The Root: Christian Holocaust, the newest episode of a series where Glenn gets to the root of a problem.
Politicians in America like to say there’s a war on women because they don’t have enough access to free birth control. Women in the Middle East can’t feel too sorry for American women – life as a female in one of the most terrorist ravaged regions in the world is absolutely horrific. Last night, Glenn aired The Root: Christian Holocaust, the newest episode of a series where Glenn gets to the root of a problem. The Root: Christian Holocaust focused on the 100 year anniversay of the Armenian Genocide and how ISIS is repeating history in the Middle East today. Glenn carried his message from last night’s episode of The Root into today’s radio show, taking the time to share a “memo” with the audience which lists the price women are sold for in an ISIS controlled land. The title of this “memo” is “Sale prices for bounty.” The threat of ISIS against Christianity around the world is real.

Rough Transcript Below: GLENN: So it’s not drinking Roundup, but last night, we did — we did a great show for you called the Root: The Christian Holocaust. I urge you to watch it on demand at the Blaze.com/TV. But it is — it is where our world is going. And it’s going in a dark place. And I wanted to show you this. I want you to look at this, Stu. This is what we — this is what is happening now in the Middle East. STU: A bunch of squiggly lines. I can’t understand it. GLENN: Yeah. What it says, it’s like a little memo posted. It has the Islamic State of Iraq. The Islamic, you know, ISIL flag up at the top. STU: Uh-huh. GLENN: Then it says 15 October 2014. Then in the name of God, the most merciful and the most compassionate. Subject: Sale prices for bounty. Now, think of this. This is an actual flier from Iraq. In the name of God, the most merciful and the compassionate. Then it says, it has come to our attention, the market value for women and bounty, spoils of war, has witnessed a significant decrease. This has affected the revenues of the Islamic State and the payments for its Mujahideen. Say that for me. PAT: Mujahideen. GLENN: Thank you. Therefore, the Treasury found it necessary to set the prices for women. All those involved in such a trade must abide by these instructions and violators will face execution. So this is — this is what’s posted at the slave trade. Price: 75,000 dinars for — and it says under commodity. It says price and then commodity. Price: 75 000 dinars, women, 30 to 40 years old, Yazidi/Christian. STU: 75,000 dinars appears to be about $63. GLENN: And you own her. 100,000 dinars. A woman 20 to 30 years old, Yazidi or Christian. STU: That’s $84. GLENN: 150,000 dinars, a woman ten to 20 years old. STU: $127. GLENN: 50,000 dinars, a woman 40 to 50 years old. STU: About $42. GLENN: And 200,000 dinars, a child between the ages of one and nine. STU: Oh, my gosh. $169. GLENN: $169. In the name of God, the most merciful and the most compassionate, it is not permitted for any one individual to purchase more than three commodities, meaning people, with the exception of foreign fighters from Turkey, Syria, and Gulf countries. So the fighters can buy them. And you know why? You know what they use them for? STU: I don’t, no. GLENN: Recreation. So they will buy a child, bring them up to the war zone and pass them out. And so they just are used for sex between the battles. This is the state of our world. This is where we are going. This is what our president is turning a blind eye towards. This is what our churches are turning a blind eye to.
