ISIS Is About to Be Defeated
Fox News reports that the last ISIS holdout is in Mosul, Iraq. The US spokesman said that ISIS is about to be defeated. Meanwhile, William Stark of International Christian Concern told The World View that the defeat of ISIS has enabled many Christians to move back to Iraq.
“A couple of families moved back and they were safe. Other people who were living in the IDP (Internally Displaced Person’s) situation are looking at it and thinking, ‘Well our neighbor moved back and they were safe. So maybe we can go back. I think you’re just going to see the trickle turning into a flood of people moving back because they’ve seen other people do it.”
Stark told The World View that Christians who return will be rebuilding their lives from the ground up.
“They’re going to, one, have to rebuild their homes. A number of people are going back and seeing that their homes were burned. Two, you have some areas where entire neighborhoods were actually leveled by airstrikes. In the operation, ISIS was hiding amongst their homes and it got leveled, entire areas, entire neighborhoods.”
Charges Dropped Against Anglican Priest Arrested Outside Abortion Mill
The only thing that Father James Linton, an Anglican priest, was guilty of was praying outside the San Bernardino, CA Planned Parenthood abortion mill for women and babies entering the facility. For that he was summarily arrested last November.
According to Life Legal Defense Foundation, his trespassing charges have been dropped which was the just outcome since Father Linton stayed on the public sidewalk and never stepped onto the abortion mill’s property.
Proverbs 24:11 says, “Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.”

Investigation Shows Link Between DNC Staffer Seth Rich and WikiLeaks
The family of the Democratic National Committee staffer, Seth Rich, who was gunned down on July 10th in Washington, DC, blasted reports that he was a source of emails leaked to WikiLeaks, reports Fox News.
However, a retired Washington homicide detective and Fox News contributor named Rod Wheeler made the WikiLeaks claim in a story first reported Monday night by Fox 5 DC.
Another federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Mr. Rich to Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time before May 21.
On July 22, just 12 days after Rich was killed, WikiLeaks published internal DNC emails that appeared to show top party officials conspiring to stop Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont from becoming the party’s presidential nominee. That controversy resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning as DNC chairperson.
Christianity Declines in the UK
Although Christianity is on the rise in countries such as China where Christians face intense persecution, research shows it is on the decline in other countries, such as the UK, reports Christian Headlines.

Liberal Producers Ready to Make New Anti-Trump Documentary Called Fahrenheit 11/9
Michael Moore and Harvey Weinstein are set to partner with one another for the first time since 2004’s Fahrenheit 9/11 on a Donald Trump documentary entitled Fahrenheit 11/9, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Directed by the liberal firebrand, the film refers to Nov. 9, 2016, the date that Trump became president-elect of the United States. 11/9 also offers a curious inverted bookend to 9/11, which took aim at the George W. Bush administration and the Iraq War (9/11 referred to the date of the 2001 terror attacks that served as the pretext for the Iraq War).
Woman Faces Felony Charges for Violently Chasing Down Congressman David Kustoff
A Tennessee woman is facing felony charges after she allegedly chased a pro-life U.S. Congressman down a highway last week, making him and his staff afraid that they would be forced off the road.
Townhall reports the incident involved U.S. Rep. David Kustoff, a pro-life Republican from Tennessee, who recently voted in favor of legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare and defund the abortion chain Planned Parenthood.
Wendi Wright, a 35-year-old woman from Obion County, Tennessee, allegedly was upset with Kustoff for supporting the pro-life legislation.
Once the congressman pulled into his neighborhood, Wright began screaming, cussing, and hitting the windows of Kustoff’s vehicle, and even reached inside. Police said she also stood in front of the vehicle to keep them from leaving.
In response to the incident, Townhall’s Guy Benson urged Democrats to denounce the growing hostility by “left-wing ‘resistance’ agitators and violent gangs,”
Pro-Lifers Blast Australian Company That Turns Embryos into Jewelry
Pro-life Christians have slammed a Australian company’s controversial practice of turning frozen embryo children into jewelry for parents, with some arguing that it is “demonic,” reports the Christian Post.
Earlier in May, the Australian Kid Spot website highlighted the story of a mother who turned to Baby Bee Hummingbirds, the company that has been transforming embryos into keepsake jewelry.
The mother, Belinda Stafford, who along with her husband underwent a six-year IVF process for their three children, explained that she wanted her remaining embryos close to her heart, instead of disposing them.
“It was painful, tormenting, a strain on our marriage and just plain hard. Finding this has brought me so much comfort and joy. I finally at peace and my journey complete. My embryos were my babies — frozen in time. When we completed our family, it wasn’t in my heart to destroy them.”
“Now they are forever with me in a beautiful keepsake.”
Amy McGlade, founder of Baby Bee Hummingbirds, said that the company has crafted 4,000 pieces of jewelry using breastmilk, placenta, hair, ashes, or cord stumps since 2014, and 50 with frozen embryos.
Judie Brown of the American Life League, slammed the practice last week, calling it “truly demonic,” saying that “no child should ever be strung around someone’s neck in a piece of jewelry. Let’s remind parents that, rather than wearing babies around their necks, they could clasp their arms around their children as they tuck them in and hug them goodnight.”
Isaiah 5:20 warns, “They will call good evil and evil good.”
