Talk Show Host Dennis Prager Says President Trump Turned Out to Be a Great President
Conservative Jewish radio talk show host Dennis Prager said that his “opposition to Donald Trump was wrong.” Because he was not a fan of how Trump carried himself, Prager admitted that he didn’t see the big picture.
“Would I like Donald Trump to have Mitt Romney’s temperament, or for that matter Barack Obama’s temperament? Yeah. So what? I would like a whole host of things. People are packages. What the president does is more important to me than a president’s demeanor. He is so much better a president than Mitt Romney would’ve made.
“Mitt Romney would’ve awakened every day to read The New York Times editorial page to see how he’s covered. Mitt Romney gave us Romneycare in Massachusetts. I campaigned for Mitt Romney. He would have been a tepid president. Nothing comparably conservative compared to Donald Trump.
“He has turned out to be a great president with big communication flaws, in the way he tweets and some of the things that he says and his temperament. My temperament is the opposite. I love dignity. I love understatement. Okay, so be it. So what? I’m not sure I’d be as good a president as he.”
Actor Mark Salling Hangs Himself After Being Caught Possessing Child Porn
Glee star Mark Salling, the 35-year-old actor who pled guilty to possession of child pornography, hanged himself yesterday near his home in Los Angeles, California, reports The Daily Mail.
Between April and December 2015, Salling downloaded more than 50,000 photos and videos on his laptop. He twice showed some of his collection to an adult woman, who ultimately reported him to the police.
That’s why it was especially disturbing to learn that Salling was reportedly home-schooled in a “strict Christian home”.
Job 12:22 says that God “reveals the deep things of darkness and brings utter darkness into the light.”
Truck Driver Arrested for Transporting Illegal Immigrants
The U.S. Border Patrol says a semi-trailer driver is in custody after he was found to be transporting 76 illegal immigrants on U.S. 83 last Friday 35 miles north of Laredo in South Texas, reports the Associated Press.
Texas Governor Gives Passionate Pro-Life Speech
Texas Governor Greg Abbott and his wife Cecilia adopted their daughter Audrey 21 years ago who recently made the dean’s list at her college.
Perhaps that explains why Abbott, who signed 10 pro-life bills into law last legislative session, was so passionate in his speech before 5,000 pro-lifers in front of the State Capitol this past Saturday.
“We will continue to defend the unborn. We will continue to give a voice to the voiceless. We will keep Texas the most pro-life state in the United States of America. And we will give every child a chance at life.”
Deuteronomy 28:1 says, “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all His commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.”
Pro-Abortion Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says She’s Not Retiring

Fundamentally, she does not want President Trump to nominate a second pro-life justice to the bench.
Singer Joy Villa Wears Dress with Pro-Life Painting at Grammy Awards
And finally, when a female celebrity makes fashion news on the red carpet, it’s usually because she’s showing more skin than dress. But at the 60th Grammy Awards in New York on Sunday night, 26-year-old singer Joy Villa’s outfit was not immodest. It was controversial because it featured an image which she painted of her daughter in the womb at 8 months.
“I was 20 years old. I was faced with a crisis pregnancy. This painting I painted on my dress. It’s one that I painted 10 years ago.
“My purse? This is the purse that says “Choose Life”. So I chose to represent a choose life, pro-life message on the Grammys red carpet. I told them that I had given a child up for adoption 10 years ago. That was my choice. And that’s why I’m pro-life.”

Yesterday, District Judge Elissa Cadish unsealed nearly 300 pages of search warrant records, including one document that publicly identified for the first time an additional “person of interest” in the Oct. 1 massacre on the Las Vegas Strip, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Worker Who Sent out False Missile Alert in Hawaii Gets Fired
The head of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency has resigned following a probe into the false missile alert sent to all Hawaii phones, and the worker who sent out the alert has been fired, reports HawaiiNewsNow.
The FCC has revealed that the state worker who sent the false missile alert to all Hawaii phones — setting off more than a half hour of panic — believed the threat of an incoming missile was real. This new information contradicts what the state has been saying since Jan. 13 — that the “button pusher” didn’t mean to send out the alert.
Freedom from Religion Foundation Makes School Remove Crosses from Campus
The Freedom from Religion Foundation is at it again.
This time they have forced the New Mexico Junior College to remove several Christian crosses that were previously displayed throughout the public school campus, reports The Christian Post.
Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal summarized the atheist group’s history in a Facebook post. He wrote, “This well-funded but fringe, extremist group has sued to remove ‘In God We Trust’ from United States currency; sued to remove the Star of David from a Holocaust memorial and sued Presidents Bush and President Obama for holding a National Day of Prayer.”
One of their slogans is “Nothing fails like prayer.” If that’s true, if there is no God to whom we pray, what are they scared of?
Laura Ingraham’s Website LifeZette Sold to Canadian Billionaire Daryl Katz
Canadian billionaire Daryl Katz’s company is the new owner of LifeZette, the site co-founded by Fox News conservative host Laura Ingraham, reports CNN Money.
At the time Ingraham launched LifeZette in 2015, she billed it as a “a cultural and political web destination for conservatives and independents.” But the site has failed to make waves and its traffic numbers are not competitive and have experienced a sharp decline over the past year, according to data from ComScore, which tracks website audience numbers.
California Bill Proposes Jailing and Fining Waiters for Giving Straws to Customers
Waiters could face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine for giving straws to customers in sit-down restaurants if a recently proposed California bill goes into effect, reports The Daily Signal.
Endorsed by the Los Angeles Times, the hope is to curb Americans’ use of 500 million plastic straws a day, many of which end up harming fragile ecosystems.
Super Moon, Blue Moon, and Lunar Eclipse Occur Simultaneously
If you live in western North America, Asia, the Middle East, Russia or Australia, you could witness a rare “super blood blue moon” today.
The astronomical trifecta combines three unusual lunar events — an extra big super moon, a blue moon and a total lunar eclipse. Unlike a solar eclipse, this lunar eclipse can be safely viewed without protective eyewear.
The last time a supermoon, blue moon, and total lunar eclipse all together were visible from the eastern United States was on May 31, 1844.
