In the bathroom this morning while standing on one leg to put on my underwear, that knee gave way, sending me falling against the cabinet and then onto the floor. My right arm was cut in a couple of places, one cut on my right little finger, and a wrenched toenail, which also led to bleeding.

The first thing I did was finish pulling on my underwear. In addition to my wife, our youngest son and his wife are here, and I wanted to limit the amount of exposure. I then got my t-shirt from the counter and got it on. Dragging myself from the bathroom to the bedroom took only a couple or three minutes. I then braced myself against the bed frame and pushed to my feet.

My wife responded to my question, “Might I have some assistance?” She said, “What do you need?” I replied, “I need my walker from the bathroom. I sort of fell.”

When my wife reached the bedroom door, she said, “You’re bleeding.” She did a quick inspection and then brought out the walker. I sat. She then got a wash cloth, wet it, and began washing my cuts. With that done, she got bandages and band aids and applied first aid.

I got dressed while my wife put away the bandages and then got cleaning materials. I had bled not only on the bathroom tile floor, but more on the bedroom carpet. My wife reminded me that with the walker in the bathroom, I could have sat while putting on underwear, and she highly recommended that I do so in the future. I agreed.

That all happened more than four hours ago. I am still leery of placing weight on my left knee. Even a little step causes a pain around 7 out of 10.

They’re the what?

"Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy." – Elizabeth Warren, hopes to be president-elect this time next year.

What Warren means is, “No straight white women need apply.”

Orban: Europe can be saved only by returning to Christianity

Europe can only be saved if it “returns to the source of its real values: its Christian identity”, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Tuesday at the opening of an international conference on persecuted Christians.

“Those we are helping now can give us the greatest help in saving Europe,” the prime minister said in his speech. “We are giving persecuted Christians what they need: homes, hospitals, and schools, and we receive in return what Europe needs most: a Christian faith, love and perseverance.”

“The Hungarian people and their government believe that Christian virtues provide peace and happiness to those who practise them,” Orbán said, noting that protecting Hungary’s constitutional identity and Christian culture was an obligation for each state agency under Hungary’s fundamental law. “This legacy obliges us to protect Christian communities persecuted across the world as far as we are able,” he said.

Orbán noted that the first Hungarian tribes arrived in the Carpathian Basin 1,100 years ago but many other groups had come and gone before them. “To this day Hungarians are curious as to why we were the ones to survive,” the prime minister said. “According to the most widely accepted answer, our military capabilities and vigour would not have been enough, so the key to our survival was our conversion to Christianity.”

“There are some who see this as primarily a diplomatic feat or one of state organisation, and it was exactly those things, but first and foremost it was a spiritual rebirth and a real conversion,” Orbán said.

“The Hungarian people and their government believe that Christianity can help peoples and nations survive, just as it had happened with us,” he added.

“Our first Christian king was more than just a remarkable ruler,” Orbán said, adding that King St. Stephen had been a visionary who had given Hungarians guidance and a “spiritual and political compass”.

The prime minister said Hungary was right to stand up for Christianity, arguing that “goodness inspires goodness” and Hungarians’ commitment to helping persecuted Christians “breeds courage”.

“Our example can have a far reach,” he said. “Actions can free those who are crippled and restore faith in personal action.”

Orbán said the question may arise whether there was already enough to be done about anti-Christian sentiment in Europe and if there was even a need to provide help to other continents. “The troubles of Christianity in Europe and the persecution of Christians in other places cannot be separated from one another,” he argued.

“Europe is quiet,” Orbán said. “A mysterious force shuts the mouths of European politicians and cripples their arms.” He said the issue of Christian persecution could only be considered a human rights issue in Europe, insisting that “Christians are not allowed to be mentioned on their own, only together with other groups that are being persecuted for their faiths.” The persecution of Christians “is therefore folded into the diverse family of persecuted religious groups”, he added.

The prime minister said that while religious persecution should not be underestimated, those who treated the persecution of Christians solely as a humanitarian problem failed to mention the most important thing. “It’s not just the people and the communities but also the culture as a whole that is being subjected to an organised and comprehensive attack,” he said. “Even in the land of our culture, our civilisation, the most successful Christian civilisation to date: Europe.” He said this attack was being carried out through “the replacement of the population, immigration, stigmatisation, insults and the muzzle of political correctness”.

Orbán said there were many “good and true Christian politicians” in Europe today but they were stymied from openly stating their views due to a mix of constant coalition negotiations and succumbing to the power relations of Europe’s media. Hungary, he said, was blessed with political stability, a public against migration, and a majority that demanded the protection of Christian culture.

He said Hungarian politics started from the position that “we Christians have the right to protect our culture and way of life”.

Orbán said that unlike many politicians elsewhere in Europe, “we believe people should be encouraged to live and thrive where their ancestors have lived for centuries. So the Hungary Helps scheme is about rebuilding schools, hospitals and dwellings in troubled parts of the world and providing young people with an education at Hungarian universities, he said.

He said Europeans were wrong to think that the persecution of Christians could never take place in their own country. He said that even though Europe had suffered at the hands of terrorists several times, “many Islamic State soldiers” had come from western European countries while “Islamic masses” had migrated to Europe illegally and unchecked.

Demographic forecasts indicate that the religious and cultural proportions in some European countries will change rapidly, he said, adding that Europe could only be “saved” by re-establishing its Christian identity.

Hungarian churches will not become malls or mosques

Hungary will not allow churches to be turned into shopping malls or mosques, Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén told an international conference on persecuted Christians on Tuesday.

Every effort will be made to protect Christian civilisation and all the help will be provided to Christians in the east who suffer the most difficult persecution, he added.

Semjén said the persecution of Christians was manifested in more sophisticated and also more brutal forms and it was a mission to fight against both.

Hungary has declared in its constitution that the protection of Christian civilisation was the duty of all state bodies.

The constitution also made it clear that marriage was the alliance between a man and a woman and that life must be protected already from the time of conception, he added.

Over the past 10 years, some three thousand churches have been revamped and built in Hungary, he said.

‘I am not going to go out like a punk’

Miami man shoots would-be robber.

“So I emptied my Glock in his chest.”


MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A 60-Year-old Miami man said he was forced to shoot and kill a gunman who had broken in to his van early Monday morning in an attempt to rob him of his jewelry.
“The guy I killed last night, he put an AK-47 to my damn face,” said Donovan Stewart.
Stewart told CBS4’S Peter D’Oench that he had to act quickly because he was worried about the safety of his 11-year-old son and girlfriend who were in the van with him.
“I am from Kingstontown in Jamaica,” he said, “and I am not going to go out like a punk. So I emptied my Glock in his chest. This man tried to get in my van while I was sleeping and he was surprised to see what I did.”
He demonstrated what he did for CBS4.
“Well, he opened the door like this and pointed his AK-47 and I reached around like this and got my gun. That is how I did this to him,” he said.
“So I thought you are you going to kill me so now I have to act quickly because I am trained,” he said. “You know I have a security license, I have a G license and I have a state firearms license and a concealed weapons permit and I have a gun and I am a member of the NRA.”

Progressives plan new strategy to make movement more popular

U.S.—Progressives are trying a new strategy to win over American hearts and minds after it was found that their outraged antics often turn people off: interrupting college football games.

"We've tried blocking traffic, chanting during baseball games, and screaming at people in restaurants, but people still don't love us for some reason," said one climate protester while she was being put into a squad car. "So now, by interrupting something most Americans don't even like and probably no one even cares about, college football, we'll get lots of praise and positive attention from your average Joe."

"This is a surefire way to win the rural, red-state voters over to our cause."

Since the strategy proved somewhat successful during the Harvard-Yale game, the protesters say they're going to try it on a real college football game next weekend: "We can't wait to see how much praise we get when we interrupt the LSU-Texas A&M game this Saturday."

Lesbian Episcopal priest new head of abortion organization

By Claire Chretien

November 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The National Abortion Federation (NAF) has announced that its new president and CEO is Katherine Ragsdale, a lesbian Episcopal “priest” and longtime abortion activist.
“Abortion providers are some of my personal heroes and modern-day saints,” Ragsdale said when the news was announced. She had been NAF’s interim president and CEO since September 2018.
In 2011, she “married” another female Episcopal “priest,” Mally Lloyd. It is unclear if they are still together; Ragsdale’s bio on NAF’s website makes no mention of Lloyd.

 So, a lesbian priest wants to kill more babies. She must be a fan of Molech and other Canaanite gods and goddesses, in her desire for dead babies. But a search for "lesbian canaanite goddesses" brought no specific results. Ragsdale must consider herself a Christian, one supposes, since she is an Episcopal preiest, but how can she justify killing babies?

Does any teaching actually occur at any colleges?

Or do students and faculty just find racial stuff to harass wimp administrators?

Some dude’s stand-up comedy routine leads to racial bias investigation at Bryant University. Bryant is in Rhode Island and has about 3,700 students.

Bryant University investigating racial bias incident at school event

Bryant University is investigating after a student’s attempt at a stand-up comedy routine sparked allegations of racism.

The incident, which was recorded on cell phone video and widely shared on social media, happened during an open mic event put on by Bryant’s campus radio station on Thursday.

In the video, the unidentified male student can be heard saying, “White people, we can’t really tell black people what to do any more. We used to be able to do that. But we can’t anymore. I’m just jealous about the fact that black people are allowed to physically assault their children and I’m not.”

The video shows only part of the routine, which is eventually interrupted when three students walk onto the stage and take the microphone away.

The university’s Bias Incident Committee says it determined a bias incident did occur, but is still collecting information beyond the video clip in its review of the matter.

“I thought it was disgusting,” Bryant University junior John Martin, told Eyewitness News. “There’s no place at Bryant for that stuff and nobody feels like that. There’s just one bad egg that makes us look bad.”

On Friday, Bryant’s president, Ronald Machtley alerted students and faculty to the incident, saying “the committee will continue to hear witness testimony on Monday to understand the total context of the performance, in order to determine the full magnitude of the bias incident.”

‘Mass cultural genocide’ by Chinese government


"Olsi Jazexhi is a Canadian-Albanian historian and Islamic scholar who visited Xinjiang in August as a guest of the Chinese Government. He was sceptical of reports in Western media about the crackdown and wanted to see for himself.
"But his preconceptions were very quickly swept away by what he witnessed at a show camp situated in Aksu district, bordering Kyrgyzstan.
"'This vocational training centre, or what we call concentration camp, was a kind of Alcatraz prison in the middle of the desert,' he said.
"And he was under no illusions about what it was he was witnessing.
"'What the Chinese are doing in Xinjiang at this moment is … a mass cultural genocide,' he said.
Leaked documents show government’s plans for rounding up and 're-educating”' Xinjiang Province Muslims. Documents say officials must “show no mercy.”

"While the grounds for suspicion are not spelled out, a Xinjiang police notice published in 2014 listed 75 indicators of 'religious extremist'.
These included:
·         Owning a compass
·         Abstaining from alcohol
·         Wailing, publicly grieving or otherwise acting sad when your parents die
·         Not letting officials scan your irises
·         Telling others not to swear
·         Not allowing officials to sleep in your bed, eat your food and live in your house
·         Being related to anyone who has done any of the above.

In other parts of China, the government wages a similar war against Christians, closing church buildings and arresting Christians.

Keeping the faith with his adopted Army

The remains of Army Sgt. Maximiano T. Lacsamana were identified earlier this month by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency. Sgt. Lacsamana was reported missing in action on December 3, 1950, in fighting against the Chinese army near the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. Sgt. Lacsamana was with Company I, 3rd Battalion, 31st Regimental Combat Team, 7th Infantry Division when several hundred thousand Chinese soldiers crossed the Yalu River and attacked United Nations forces in North Korea. The 7th ID and the 1st Marine Division were pushed several miles south and eventually evacuated.

“The 31 st Regimental Combat Team … was virtually annihilated east of the Chosin Reservoir.”

“On 4 December, when most of its survivors had returned, the 1st Battalion, 32d Infantry, counted only 181 officers, men, and attached Republic of Korea troops, of the original 1,053 that had begun the operation. The other battalions in the perimeter had suffered equal losses.”

Sgt. Lacsamana was born in 1913 in the Philippines. He was 28 years old when the Japanese bombed the Philippines, forcing the United States into World War II. He was a soldier in the Philippine Scouts, considered the best-trained unit in the Philippines.

Sgt. Lacsamana fought and died far from home, but his adopted army brought him home.

His service with the Philippine Scouts and later with the regular U.S. Army is deserving of a story.

With good government and involved citizens, Brazil can become successful

 Secondary headline: Well, all right then!

Story: Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro announced the creation of a new political party, aligning himself closer to the country’s Catholic and Evangelical electorates. The “Alliance for Brazil,” as the new party is called, will restore “God’s place in the life, history and soul of the Brazilian people,” the Brazilian President told cheering crowd at a rally on Thursday.

According to the statute of the newly formed party, the “separation of church and state never meant that atheism was obligatory.” The Alliance for Brazil will fight “communism, globalism and any ideology that is against the natural order” the political program said.

The announcement came just a day after President Bolsonaro left the conservative Social Liberal Party (PSL). He urged the PSL senators and lawmakers to join his party.

The Alliance for Brazil seeks to reflect the concerns and values of the electoral base that got President Bolsonaro elected in October 2018 election. The new party will be pro-life and supports the right to bear arms, media reports confirmed.

Bolsonaro’s enemies outside Brazil include: The New York Times, the UK’s Independent and Venezuelan strong man Nicolas Maduro. 

Russian mercenaries ‘out of their depth’ in Mozambique

Veteran African mercenaries say politics and money can’t make up for lack of experience.

By Pjotr Sauer, The Moscow Times

A few weeks after Wagner’s arrival in September, reports started coming out of Mozambique that the group’s mercenaries were being ambushed, killed and beheaded in Cabo Delgado.

Two Mozambique army sources told The Moscow Times in October that at least seven Russians had been killed by the insurgency that month. Over a dozen independent analysts, mercenaries and security experts working in the region have since told The Moscow Times that Wagner is struggling.

“You have to realize this is one of the toughest environments in the world,” said Al Venter, a veteran South Africa journalist who has written extensively about mercenaries on the continent.

“The consensus is that Wagner has almost no experience of the kind of primitive bush warfare being waged in there. They are going to come very badly unstuck,” he added.

Cabo Delgado is one of the poorest and least developed areas in the region. It has limited basic infrastructure, including a lack of roads and hospitals, that makes it an environment that is “ideal” for ambushes, according to a Mozambican intelligence specialist based in the area who wished to remain anonymous. 

“The undergrowth is so thick there that all the high-tech equipment Wagner brought ceases to be effective. The Russians arrived with drones, but they can’t actually use them,” the specialist said. 

Jasmine Opperman, a terrorism expert based in South Africa, believes “a perfect storm” has formed around Wagner in Mozambique.

“The Russians don’t understand the local culture, don’t trust the soldiers and have to fight in horrible conditions against an enemy that is gaining more and more momentum. They are in over their heads.”

Scam phone calls

Between 2:23 a.m. and 4:42 a.m. Saturday my phone received 13 calls. I answered two, the first and the second. Whoever made the first call did not reply. The second call was a recording notifying me that my internet connection would be shut down unless I pressed 1 for additional information. I turned off my phone. For whatever it is worth, the recorded voice was of a woman with English accent.

The calls I received were:

642-472-0263 – Kansas

654-133-382 – Minnesota


670-419-028 – Commonwealth of North Mariana Islands

604-908-018 – City of Vancouver, British Columbia

646-238-429 -- NYC

272-215-1514 – Williamsport, PA 0251. A legitimate number. Call went to voice mail. Waiting for reply.

657-948-126 – Los Angeles

682-977-567 – Fort Worth Texas

977-840-0125 -- Texas

637-671-9514 – Not a valid Area Code in North America

902-289-1509 – Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, Not a working number. Stewiacke has a statue of a mastodon, a bar, a pharmacy, a grocery store, a pizzeria, numerous fast food restaurants, two gas stations, a hardware store, an 18-hole golf course and a newly built elementary school that consolidates 2 former local schools. The population is around 1,400.

485-131-2162 – NY State, not a working number.

The three-digit last groupings are as recorded by my phone.

The numbers are, of course, part of a scam. If you get a call between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m., and you do not recognize the number, don’t answer. Wait until 10 a.m. or so and then run a search on the numbers.

Deep State braggarts believe they should run the country

Just imagine if Democratic bureaucrats in the CIA, FBI, Pentagon and State Department, the anti-Trump and anti-Deplorables, had their way and decided we don’t need those cumbersome elections. No divisiveness, no shrill arguments on TV news. Nope. Everybody just shut up and do what he/she is told to do.

Victor Davis Hanson, ‘”Coup” Concerns Suddenly Don’t Seem So Far-fetched’

“Recently, former acting CIA chief John McLaughlin proclaimed in a public forum, ‘Thank God for the deep state.’ Former CIA director John Brennan agreed and praised the ‘deep state people’ for their opposition to Trump.
“Far from denying the danger of an unelected careerist bureaucracy that seeks to overturn presidential policies, New York Times columnists have praised its efforts to nullify the Trump agenda.
“On the first day of the impeachment inquiry, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff called his initial two witnesses, career State Department diplomats William Taylor Jr. and George Kent. Far from providing damning evidence of criminal presidential behavior, Taylor and Kent mostly confined themselves to three topics: their own sterling resumes, their lack of any firsthand knowledge of incriminating Trump action, and their poorly hidden disgust with the manner and substance of Trump's foreign policy.”

Commander in Chief says Chief Gallagher will keep Trident pin

By Benjamin Minick

Trump says Chief Edward Gallagher's case handled badly from the beginning.

Tells Navy to "go back to business."

​The Navy continues to take a beating from the President over its handling of the case against Chief Edward Gallagher, who was accused of multiple counts of dereliction of duty in a war zone, including murder, attempted murder and posing with the corpse of a deceased Islamic State fighter.
The naval leadership had convened a board to determine the fitness of the SEAL chief and to determine whether or not they were going to remove his coveted Trident pin, which symbolizes membership in the SEALs. Sources told the International Business Times that the Navy leadership was concerned that regardless of what was determined by the board, the President was going to step in and reverse the decision.
That is precisely what happened Thursday morning. President Trump tweeted his support for the embattled Navy SEAL and stated that they would not be removing his Trident pin and that it was time to "get back to business." He cited the poor handling of the case by the U.S. Navy.
No matter where you fall on this issue, it's crucial to realize that Chief Gallagher is not the first person in the history of the military to pose with a corpse of an adversary on the battlefield. It's actually a pervasive thing and the general feeling from veterans across the services is that if one person is going to be punished for it, then everybody should be punished for it.
However, in the history of the U.S. military, nobody has ever been brought before a court-martial on charges of posing with a corpse of a foe. The Navy has done a horrible job of handling this case from the very beginning, and President Trump has echoed that sentiment. For a branch of the service that is steeped in such honor and tradition, the Navy sure hasn't shown it thus far in this case.
The military is not a democracy, and the entire case started when subordinates were unhappy with their treatment and decisions by their leader. They came together to level charges against Chief Gallagher after returning home from a deployment. Chief Gallagher was acquitted of all the charges except for the lesser charge of posing with a corpse, and while that might not seem like proper decorum, it happens.

A source indicated to International Business Times on Wednesday that the Navy leadership felt that Presidential involvement would weaken the command structure of the United States Navy, rendering its leaders ineffective. In this case, that seems to be what might need to happen. Chief Gallagher did not do anything that jeopardized the safety of his team or the mission; the job that these men do is one of the most difficult on the planet, and there is no rule book for accomplishing the task.
The real problem here is that the Navy has attempted to generalize and create a politically correct image for special operations operatives. War is hell and that is a terrible precedent to set because if you take away the tip of the spear, then the weapon essentially becomes useless. While photographs may be in poor taste the effectiveness of one's ability to do their job is not determined by pictures that are taken on the battlefield.
It would be one thing if the court-martial had found the Chief guilty of murder or attempted murder; it's a whole other thing to continue to persecute the man after the President has expressed unwavering support, even going so far as to overstep leadership. Maybe it is time to get back to business as the President said.

(Navy leadership “believed presidential involvement would weaken the command structure.” Hey, Navy leadership. You make stupid decisions from the beginning, and a trial judge had to slap you down, you better expect presidential involvement. This is not the Obama feel-good Navy, it is beginning to be the real Navy.)

They all look alike anyway

Studio exec reportedly wanted Julia Roberts as Harriet Tubman.

Harriet, the historical drama based on Tubman’s life released earlier this month, stars Cynthia Erivo. But the film’s screenwriter and producer, Gregory Allen Howard, says when he first started working on the movie in 1994 that one studio executive suggested Julia Roberts to portray the legendary slave turned abolitionist. Yes, that Julia Roberts.
“In a Q&A with Allen published earlier this month by Harriet studio Focus Features (and reiterated in an L.A. Times essay published Tuesday), Allen recalled how ‘the climate in Hollywood … was very different’ some 25 years ago.
“’I was told how one studio head said in a meeting, ‘This script is fantastic. Let’s get Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman,’” Allen explained. “When someone pointed out that Roberts couldn’t be Harriet, the executive responded, ‘It was so long ago. No one is going to know the difference.’”

Genius. Those are the people making the movies you pay to watch.

‘Lemonade turns to blood in Chick-fil-A locations across country’

From Babylon Bee

U.S. – Well, this can’t be good.

After Chick-fil-A caved to the LGBTQ lobby and agreed to stop donating money to certain Christian organizations, the lemonade at various Chick-fil-A locations immediately began turning into blood.

"Uh, boss, you'd better come see this!" cried one employee at an Albany location. "I just squeezed the lemons like normal---I swear!"
One Chick-fil-A location in Toledo was swarmed with frogs and locusts, while the judgment of darkness fell on other restaurants throughout California, though that may just have been a regular power outage.
Restaurant representatives quickly spun the news and said the beverage is their new Blood-Orange Lemonade that's "rich in iron."
"There's no problem here," said a nervous CFA spokesperson. "Liquid turning to blood is always a sign of God's favor throughout the Bible. In fact, it means our lemonade has that extra-special blessing from on high. It's rich in iron and good for your immune system since we don't know what's in there and it will probably strengthen you up if it doesn't kill you."
A booming voice from the heavens reportedly told Chick-fil-A to "let my Christian organizations go."

Muslim gangs in Europe will go Islamic

“Those who depict our prophet, we’ll blow them up.” – Brothas gang members in interview after synagogue attack.

From Sultanknish:

Although Sweden has seen an increase in bombing attacks and murders, “the real problem isn’t coming in from Sweden, but from Morocco, Turkey, Pakistan, Jordan, and Somalia.

“Europe’s open infrastructure, its rejection of national and regional borders, has worsened the problem. From the mass flow of migrants from Muslim countries to the ease with which Muslim gang members move between European countries, the lack of border security has made the conquest of Europe easy.

“The growing linkages between Muslim gangs across national borders is a warning of worse to come.

“The main components of Islamic militias, like the ones that tore apart Syria and Libya, were gangs. Islamist forces like these are often made up of gangs with grandiose names. The Copenhagen gangs are still associated with international gangs and use their names, but eventually they will go Islamic.

“And then it won’t be the Hells Angels anymore. It’ll be the Islamic State of something or other.

Record lows in The Hottest Year Ever?

Some story a couple of weeks back said “This October was the hottest ever recorded.” Ever recorded. In the history of the world. Not to be left out, August 2019 also was the hottest August ever recorded. Ever. And…And, September 2019 tied the record for hottest September ever recorded. Again, ever recorded. But then the story took a strange curve. “Since 1981,” the story said, with no further explanation. What? Since 1981?

Which kind of leads to every year since, oh, say 2015, has been the hottest year in human recording. Worldwide.

So, how is it we have record low temperatures during The Hottest Year Ever?

“Record-low temperatures from Texas to Maine. Louisiana, Mississippi, Virginia, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan set records not only for the day, but for the entire month of November, according to forecasters.

“At least eight deaths have been blamed on a record-breaking cold spell that still had its grip on much of the country Wednesday morning.

“The National Weather Service said the cold front brought a level of intensity not seen since 1911, more than 100 years ago.”
