Nigerian Muslims killed 50 villagers, burned 254 houses, 7 churches
Within the last month, the AK-47-wielding Muslim terrorists killed 50 villagers, burned 254 houses and seven churches in the Atyap Chiefdom, in the Kaduna state located in central Nigeria. Eighty-four percent of the Atyap people are Christian.
Psalm 34:16 says, “The face of the Lord is against evildoers, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.”
Please pray for God to bring justice for the grieving families and peace to Nigeria.
Mass shooting at Tennessee supermarket
Twelve people were injured and two people, including the shooter, have been pronounced dead. Four of them are in critical condition. The shooter is dead from what police believe is a self-inflicted gunshot.
Several Kroger employees said they recognized the shooter, who has not yet been named, as a co-worker.
The remorse of Biden voters
A new poll revealed that Biden voters have significant buyer’s remorse. Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard described it as “a stunning turnaround.”
In a Rasmussen poll of 1,000 likely voters, conducted September 21st and 22nd, they would now pick President Donald Trump over Joe Biden by a 51%-41% margin if given a second chance at Election Day.
Bedard explained, “Just 247 days since President Joe Biden took the keys to the Oval Office, a majority of people appear to want him evicted and former President Donald Trump back. And by a country mile.”
Key was the fact that independent voters “overwhelmingly” said they would go for Trump, by 20 points. And one-fifth of the Democrats would even now vote for Trump.
The turnaround comes after Biden’s COVID mandates, his inflationary economic policies, his abortion push, his southern border crisis, and his catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan, leaving behind hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghans who had helped the U.S. there.
Bedard noted that another recent poll, by McLaughlin & Associates, revealed “voters want Trump’s leadership style back.” When asked about Trump’s style, voters said, by 52%-44% that it “wasn’t so bad.”
Senator Paul upset about Biden’s Afghan policies
In a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing 10 days ago, Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky confronted Secretary of State Antony Blinken over President Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal of our troops from Afghanistan. He was upset with Biden for two reasons. First, Paul does not believe that Biden should have left behind $80 billion of military equipment which the Taliban can now use against us and our allies. And second, America should not give the Afghanistan government, which is now controlled by the Taliban, another dime, much less the $10 billion we apparently promised.
PAUL: “Why don’t we subtract the $80 billion from the $10 billion you’re going to give them. Then, they’re minus $70 [billion] still. The fact that you’re entertaining good behavior that they’ll get more money, I think, is a big mistake and a naïve notion that we’re going to somehow change this stone-age philosophy by giving them more of our money. We’ve sunk trillions of dollars over there. This is our chance to have a peace dividend. Let’s quit sending good money after bad.”
Senator Paul had an inventive idea for what we should have done with the U.S. helicopters and planes that we left behind.
PAUL: “Maybe we should have bombed the helicopters and the planes that we left behind. Once they took all of our stuff, we should have said, ‘You’ve got 20 minutes to get out of it because we’re going to blow it all up!’ Then, you would have sent a message of strength. Instead, we bombed somebody who we’re not sure whether it was an aid worker or an ISIS-K operative. That’s not sending a signal of strength. And, in the end, there will be more blowback from it. If you killed an aid worker on accident, I mean, do you think we’re better off because of that?”
And Senator Paul had a final thought about the stupidity of giving the Taliban any money, especially after two suicide bombers blew up 13 of our solders.
PAUL: “Releasing money to the Taliban will add insult to injury. It’ll be terrible for the memory of the 13 soldiers who died in the end, who were the final soldiers to die in this war, if you end up giving money to the people that have been ruining the Middle East and Afghanistan for decades. I hope you won’t release the money. I think it’ll be a big mistake.”
Weatherman of 33 years fired for refusing COVID shot
And finally, with a prediction for very stormy weather ahead for the nation he loves, meteorologist Karl Bohnak signed off last week after being fired for refusing to take the COVID-19 shot, reports WorldNetDaily.com.
Bohnak had served as the weatherman at Michigan’s WLUC-TV for 33 years, according to the Washington Post. Gray Television, WLUC’s parent company, instituted a mandated COVID shot policy that went into effect on Wednesday.
In a post on Facebook, Bohnak wrote, “The abrogation of our liberty and freedom under the guise of a pandemic is very disturbing to me. Hopefully, whether you lean right or left, you are concerned about what has occurred the last year-and-a-half.
“I just wanted to go about my business, ‘live and let live’, and keep my mouth shut. But this act by the federal government through corporate America has brought me to a crossroads. Our way of life, our freedom and liberty, is collapsing before our eyes.”
Bohnak took issue with the censorship of any medical professional who is suspicious of the COVID shot.
He said, “We are being bludgeoned with fear, I believe, in an effort to control us. Eminent doctors, virologists and epidemiologists who post facts contradicting the ‘official’ accepted narrative regarding COVID are being censored; some are losing their jobs.”
2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control.”
Bohnak concluded with “a distillation of a portion of Jefferson’s masterpiece, the Declaration of Independence: ‘When tyranny becomes law, resistance becomes duty.’
