Communists install facial recognition, fingerprint scanning in Chinese churches
The Chinese Communists have installed surveillance and tracking devices in churches across China as part of their “Sharp Eyes Project” in order to monitor and control the movements of Christians in the country, reports International Christian Concern.
Facial recognition technology was placed in Three Self Churches in the capital of the Xinjiang Uyghur region. In early October, Muyang Church in Hubei had facial recognition and fingerprint software installed and were required to have congregants scanned before each entry to the building.
The regular scanning also reveals who is consistently attending services.
Ephesians 6:11 urges Christians to “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.”
Attorney General Barr: Left wants to “sabotage” functioning of Executive Branch
At the Federalist Society conference on Friday, Attorney General William Barr accused Democrats of “waging a scorched-earth, no-holds-barred war of resistance” against President Trump designed to “sabotage the functioning of the executive branch.”
BARR: “Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called ‘the resistance’. They rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch and his administration.
“Now, resistance is the language used to describe insurgency against military power. It obviously connotes that the government is not legitimate. This is a very dangerous and indeed incendiary notion to import into the politics of a Democratic Republic. They essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.”
Fox News Host to Pelosi: You didn’t pray over impeachment!
Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson called out pro-abortion Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday for hypocrisy after she claimed that prayer has guided House Democrats’ push to impeach President Donald Trump, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
PELOSI: “So, I’m very prayerful, thoughtful, and actually sad today that our country has to come to a place where the President doesn’t understand that Article 2 [of the Constitution] does not say that he can do whatever he wants.”
CARLSON: “Obviously a person of deep faith member, a member of the church of partial birth abortion, praying deeply.”
Carlson’s guest, Republican Congressman Brad Wenstrup of Ohio, said this.
WENSTRUP: “I find her to be very hypocritical. I’m a Catholic. She claims to be a Catholic. I see her on Ash Wednesday with the ashes on her forehead. Then I’m thinking, ‘And then you want to go out and kill babies in the womb.’”
Pelosi has repeatedly invoked prayer throughout the process, insisting Democrats have only moved against Trump after deep reflection and even reluctance.
CA jury awards Planned Parenthood $2 million for undercover pro-life videos
Pro-life hero David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress undercover investigators have been found guilty of multiple crimes and must pay $2 million in damages to Planned Parenthood for the work they did in exposing organ harvesting on aborted babies, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
The jury of nine men and one woman released its verdict Friday afternoon after deliberating less than two days, even though the landmark civil trial took six weeks.
Peter Breen, the lead Thomas More Society defense attorney, said, “This lawsuit is payback for David Daleiden exposing Planned Parenthood’s dirty business of buying and selling fetal parts and organs.”
96% of network newscasts has been negative to President Trump
Since 2017, the coverage of President Trump and his administration by the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts has been overwhelmingly negative.
Following the beginning of the impeachment inquiry on September 24 though, this coverage has been even more hostile than normal. Out of 684 evaluative comments included in these broadcasts, a whopping 96 percent have been negative, vs. a meager four percent that have been positive, reports the Media Research Center.
Venice, Italy is under water
Venice, Italy braced Saturday for an unprecedented third major flooding in less than a week, with sea water due to swamp the already devastated historic city where authorities have declared a state of emergency.
Mayor Luigi Brugnaro ordered the iconic St Mark’s Square closed on Friday as the latest sea surge struck with strong storms and winds battering the region.
Baby’s t-shirt proclaims: “Thank God for abortion”
And finally, pro-abortion activists have resorted to outrageous, demonstrably false claims in order to advance their deadly agenda.
A disturbing photo of two lesbian parents with a smiling baby wearing a t-shirt which proclaims, “Thank God for Abortion” went viral this month, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
“Thank God for Abortion” is part of a wave of projects like “Shout Your Abortion” that are rooted in the theory that so-called “positive” abortion narratives are the key to solidifying public opinion, by emphasizing abortion’s supposed beneficiaries and pushing back against any suggestion that the practice is less than wholesome.
Before the pro-abortion advocates declare that our Creator wants to be “thanked” for killing an innocent baby created in His image, perhaps they should look up Proverbs 6 which describes the 7 things that God hates including “the shedding of innocent blood.”
