6,000 militia fighters stormed U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq
President Donald Trump announced that the US embassy in Baghdad, Iraq is safe after some 6,000 pro-Iran militia fighters stormed the compound on Tuesday, set walls ablaze, and chanted ‘Death to America!’ in a violent retaliation for American air strikes, reports the Daily Mail.
The president doubled down in his warning to Iran, saying their government will be held “fully responsible” for the attack that forced the Pentagon to send 100 Marines as reinforcements to the Iraqi embassy.
U.S. fighter jets bombarded three locations in Iraq on Sunday night, in retaliation for last week’s 36-rocket attack which killed an American contractor and injured several others at a base in Kirkuk, 170 miles north of Baghdad.
42 million babies killed by abortion in 2019
By contrast, 8.2 million people died from cancer in 2019, 5 million from smoking, 13 million from disease, and 1.7 million died of HIV/AIDS.
NBC host trashes Christians; they’re trained to ‘believe in fairytales.’
On Sunday, NBC News political director Chuck Todd dedicated the final Meet the Press of 2019 to insisting President Trump had brought about a “post-truth society”, reports Life News.
TODD: “This morning, Meet the Press takes an in-depth look at our post-truth society and how a changing media landscape has created chaos out of order.”
The same network that pushed the discredited Steele dossier for years and tried to sink Justice Brett Kavanagh’s nomination with the ridiculous allegations from Julie Swetnick, wanted to lecture the public about falling for and spreading lies and misinformation. In the process, Todd lashed out at Christians for believing in “fairy tales” in the midst of his panel discussion.
TODD: “I want to read you guys a letter to the editor we found in the Lexington Herald Leader. It was a fascinating attempt to kind of explain why some people support President Trump. Here’s what he says, ‘Why do good people support Trump? It’s because people have been trained from childhood to believe in fairy tales. This set their minds up to accept things that make them feel good. The more fairy tales and lies he tells the better they feel. Show me a person who believes in Noah’s ark, and I will show you a Trump voter.’”
Genesis 6: 5-8, 12-14 says, “The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that He had made human beings on the earth, and His heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, ‘I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.’ But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.
“God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.”
Mr. Todd, the story of Noah’s ark is no fairy tale!

Hero Mom ignored advice to pull the plug on daughter in coma
And finally, Kertisha Brabson, age 31, began acting funny — reaching out for things that weren’t there, dancing when there wasn’t music, and speaking in jibberish. Eventually, Kertisha had a seizure that landed her in a coma with Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, a condition in which the brain cells are under attack from its own body.
Doctors advised Kertisha’s mother, Kertease Williams, that she was brain-dead and it was time to pull the plug, reports FaithWire.com.
But mom didn’t give up on her daughter, reports CBS Detroit.
KERTEASE: “I don’t have no doctor’s background. [I’ve] never been to school for anything, but when it’s your child, you’re going to do everything in your power to bring your daughter back.”
Miraculously, after 7 grueling months in a coma, Kertisha woke up.
Dr. Shraddha Mainali, at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, got an amazing report.
MAINELLI: “One of my residents who was on call at night, texted me in the morning and says, ‘You won’t believe what I saw today.’ I was like, ‘What happened?’ He said, ‘Kertisha is opening her eyes and she’s following simple commands. She woke up.’”
Kertisha’s mother told CBS that she was ecstatic!
KERTEASE: “My goodness. We just jumped up and down and screamed Nobody slept that morning.”
To Kertisha, who didn’t remember a thing, she felt like she had just woken up from a nap 7 months earlier and is expected to make a full recovery.
Praise God for instilling motherly love in this woman who went the extra mile to protect her child!
1 Chronicles 16:34 says, “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”
